4:01 pm
russia for everything tossed on you who's on the slow system to progress. they are likely doing it on purpose to anger. russia, on the sheets of jazz, is just the plaza way provoke people. see, ah, hello, welcome to ortiz world news at midnight live from our moscow h q with me, kevin, now in for the next 30 minutes. and 1st than a london court has ruled that wiki leaks found that julie de sargje can be extradited to the united states. washington wanted to appeal against a previous ruling. the blocked assange from being sent to america to face trial on espionage charges. his fiance described the decision today as a grave miscarriage of justice. julian exposed the crimes of caea torturers of ca killers. and now we know that those ca killers were planning to
4:02 pm
kill him too. how can this court? how can these courts approve an extradition request? under these conditions, well to the san just now or step closer to being expedited to the united states. as the u. k. high court has decided that it will be over turning a decision not to expedite to him to the united states. that decision was based back in january on medical grounds at the time the judge said it would be a price if a student decides that a high risk of suicide. of course, back in october, that was a 2 day harry, i was the united states trying to appeal over numerous grounds, including the fact that it offered an unprecedented package of assurances, as i saw, would not be held under the maximum security the strictest maxim security conditions . in prison and that he isn't unwell this being, he's made out. well,
4:03 pm
judas sanchez have continued to say that he is indeed a suicide risk. and that all of these assurances are meaningless and vague as they put it. they said that the united states can reverse any decision at any point. class is also concerned about the trustworthiness of america guarantees to pointing to one of those reports in the year that the cia had talked to kidnap during the saw and put it to kill them. and even it was spying and bugging him during his time at london's ecuadorian embassy. now june is song just noise. what they say is this is i'm putting enough evidence to not only throw out the court case entirely, but they say it's a 100 percent politically motivated. plus they of course i'll give it to you and his son should be walking free. when did you go back in? you to fight for assange is freedom. it is unfair to keep him in custody when there is no crime or punishment for him. we continued to fight and this latest decision
4:04 pm
is not yet final. it will take time. i remind you the text tradition hearings have been going on for almost a year, and it may take us long again to get a final decision. however, sanchez health continues to deteriorate and all of this affects his physical and psychological condition. i called the journalist is being prosecuted for publishing, reliable information about especially great war crimes committed by the american military in iraq and afghanistan. and it is worth noting that the american court is not prosecuting the military who committed these crimes, but the journalist who published information about serious human rights violations . therefore, everything that happened became very indicative of the violation of freedom of the press by the american justice system in relation to other countries. now the united states on june nissan, for what they deem is one of the largest compromises of classified information in the history of the united states. and if found guilty and convicted, he could be sent to prison for up to 175 years. that's because the us have indicted
4:05 pm
him on 18 counts under the espionage jacques for publishing. i classified military documents over like the war in iraq and afghanistan, but most crucially for got included claims or the military even killed thousands of innocent civilians. now, speaking outside the high court here, this morning, we've heard from stella morris the partner who's incredibly disappointed and she's saying why and how is this happening? how long can this really go on for many people have been supporting her outside here. many, many protests is that also are similar questions there who is a glimmer of hope that you know, the british justice system might actually prevail for once. the british judiciary as the assistive on every level, the u. s. campaign garcia and i to 10 years, 10 years in the streets of london. public opinion in the sy, in
4:06 pm
a sounds. but obviously the judge's decision is not on the side of public opinion. it's absolutely devastating. so she, this time of year to another christmas about, do you know that is children without their dad stay on the fight to free? judy massage. that's what i say. we will prevail eventually. well, interestingly or ironically today is international human rights day. and many people outside as a high court to say, where is the human rights in the case of june, assange obviously wasted on the foreground of the royal court of justice that they call it the royal courts of injustice. and just as i did was being announced, i protest even through eggs at this side, directly behind me, which just goes to show the sentiment and feeling here on the streets of london. it's a complicated recent back story, but briefly this is how the assange stories developed lately in 2019. he was forcefully removed by the british police from ecuador embassy in london. after kate
4:07 pm
had terminated his 7 year solemn, there he sought refuge in our building following sexual assault allegations and sweden, which have now been dropped. america wants the wiki league, found the extradited on claims of conspiring to hat government computers and publish classified material. fast forward to january this year, a british judge ruled against extradited him to the us soap of fears about his mental health, but also at the same time rejected the bail application claiming he could be at risk of fleeing. earlier we spoke with the wiki leaks editor in chief, kristen ha, fransen was actually in believable. and so i run a good this decision should be handed on the united nations human rights. the united states had all opportunity in the madison court to make those so called assurances it did not. it simply press them forward after they lost in the menus court. in general, the united states had given assurances that the,
4:08 pm
they would to treat the julian fairly and he would get that treatment and be housed in an adequate to jail. and could even server the sentence if he gets one in australia. all of these so called assurance and have been and been investigated by human rights organizations such as amnesty international and found that those are some of the worth, the paper they're written on. they are simply not reliable. we are dealing here with a nation where individuals on the top level in the junior, the top level of the cia and in the white house contemplated, kidnapping were killing julian assaults. this is not a case that is being fought on the basis of the law. this is an absolute travesty of any legal process. this is a political case, and the julian arrest us we have said many, many years is a political persecution. us pursuing assange after reveals classified information
4:09 pm
on american military activities during was enough canister, and iraq ah, [000:00:00;00] with the mileage mm. i mean,
4:10 pm
a major publications like the guardian in london or the new york times, dare spiegel, they all published this material, in fact one awards for it. ah, julian, in factor was leaked the material and did what any publisher would do, which is to put it out. he's never been charged with publishing. material that is false or incorrect is a pre amazing track record are. but yes, it's very myopic on the part of a u. s. media outlets not to understand that if julian is extradited, which is unfortunately looking more and more likely are this will set a legal precedent that any journalist who has in their possession classified material or any publisher that publishes classified material can be held in criminal contempt. it changes the game completely and eviscerate any investigation into the inner workings of power rushes for
4:11 pm
a ministry slam. the court verdict highlighting that it so coincides to the end of a summit for democracy hosted by the united states. this shameful verdict, in a political case against a journalistic and public figure is another manifestation of the cannibalistic world view of the anglo saxon tandem. the west marks international human rights day and the end of the summit for democracy with dignity. this news is devastating. the persecution of julian assange as the disgrace. meanwhile, biden is holding his cynical democracy summit and the hypocrisy and the cruelty. we condemned today's u. k. high court decision to allow the expedition of julius on to the us, which will prove historic for all the wrong reasons. we fully believe that julian assigned has been targeted for his contributions to journalism. meantime, side from our classified documents had been laid bare, showing how the u. s. appears to a broken diplomatic assurances in another extradition case. similar to that server, julian assange. this time the guys names david mendoza,
4:12 pm
he says he only agreed to be expedited by madrid to america on the condition that he be allowed to serve the potential sentence in spain. he says even send a document with the american or spanish government, assuring him of that condition, but that the u. s. held him that in jail for him was 7 years before eventually returning him and only after he had taken legal action against america. we spoke to jealous, richard med, terse to release the documents. in that case. you know, they've told us that he can serve any potential sentence in his home country australia. they said the exact same thing to mendoza. they told him just just let him come to the us and he can serve any sentence given back in spain. in mendoza's case, the united states signed a contract, an explicit contract with mendoza, and with spain saying that he must be returned to spain. he can not be given a life sentence, he kind of tried for concert structuring. they violated this, the u. s. kept him for 6 years and 9 months. the only reason mendoza was allowed to go back to spain is because he sued spain twice in the spanish supreme court. and
4:13 pm
he won and spain threatened to cut off the extradition treaty with the u. s. that is when the u. s. felt pressure, they wanted to keep extra dining people from spain. and so it's only because this was imperiled and in danger of being cancelled that they then sent him back and doesn't what was extradited for drug trafficking and money laundering. and he told me, if they did that to him, if the united states did that to mendoza, what are they going to do to julian thought. this is a common practice. the united states violates its assurances. it's diplomatic agreements, whether it's iran, nuclear deal, whether it's, you know, a prison transfer assurances for a saundra window that they're going to violate the mark my words. this is going to happen. mendoza, certain of this. can i interviewed him for this? and he's seen dozens of people from spain, from columbia, from mexico, from all over the world, who've been given assurances. and once they get to the u. s, it's violated these documents that i published. they weren't seen by the court yet . they weren't submitted in court. and i'm convinced that if the judge had seen them, if the judge's study of these documents, they could not let this extra sure go ahead because they've accepted that
4:14 pm
a song just suicidal. they've accepted the judge, apply the test correctly, that he would be even more suicidal. he would, he would drive an expedition to deal with, drive him to take what except that all this. so the only reason they allow the appeal to go ahead today was that the judge should have allowed us to give assurances before and that they trust us assurances, well, i'm very sorry, but these classified documents say otherwise you're watching out to international morning from last, sco just midnight for seen in i was kevin allen with you come on up among the stories of coverage. russia was the west of a potential conflict in europe, off the ukrainian ship sailed dangerously close to russian waters without authorization, big fuss over that. in the last 24 hours got like this reaction for you with
4:15 pm
ah, with to watching television, you forget about the carpet, the cartons, the facts from the living room. and you plug your experience into the tv. something romantic happens. you feel romantic feelings to me? scary ams, you said you suspend belief in reality and you literally follow the story if you
4:16 pm
like this on the television and in a sense, it knows this is similar. oh exactly . 16 post here. rushes for a ministry has criticized the west for its behavior after a ukrainian warship approached russian territory warning that it could even lead to conflict in europe. i got the latest my correspondence kellum open in new york city, and uli ship of oliver, who's in crimea, where we had 1st and not so long ago it had from the russian foreign ministry regarding the latest incident in the economy and cursed trade, whether ukrainian a ship called don bonds had approached russian territory walsh's and then turned bank without reporting to the russian coast. god. also on thursday, december, the 9th russian flies his is hooted. find us on french miniature aircraft over the blank. see, according to the russian national defense control center and the russian foreign
4:17 pm
ministry added that nato supports ukraine and it's aggressive actions instead of holding it bike. moscow is concerned that nato come plays was trying miss. so systems with a minimum flight time to russia on ukrainian soil. so let's take a listen to the ministry hunt to say a cruise has been sent to draw ukraine into nature. such irresponsible behavior is an unacceptable threat to all security provoking serious risks for all parties involved ought to a large scale conflict in europe. earlier the f s v a has called the actions of the ukranian ship don boss in this c, a bazaar, a provocation, and a threat to the safety of navigation back. just to remind you not far away for wound standing in the crime in see to have courage, a collision between the russian and ukrainian fleets and the curse trade have nearly happened. it started when they don't boss ship, lead the port of mar you pull saturday morning and moved towards the curse trade. that ukrainian defense minister said they don't boss ship was in this c o a z o
4:18 pm
illegally. since it was a shed water area, express his surprise at moscow, so a threat from an unarmed search and rescue vessel. and also the ship incident took place at the same time when the talks between the president sold the united states on ukraine, joe biden and vladimir zalinski were under way crime in officials expressed concern and urged the you unsecure to cancel to discuss the problem that can leads to a wide spread confrontation. meanwhile, here encourage local people also see the latest incident as provocation, and he has some of the opinions at the youngest of all of our cards. this was blatant provocation rather than it was intended to show that as biden zalinski spoke, russia was restricting passage for ukrainian shirley through the car. right, right. but i am confident that there was a t p. occur on board, ready to comb, recorded ball as it acts as people they wanted to paint. russia is guilt creams, they always blame russia for every median toast. tanya yellow that the field on slices rock arkansas. but the word that he green would continue with the publications over and they are likely doing it on purpose to anger rationally,
4:19 pm
all the shape of a jets is just and pleasant way provoke people are a see you. yes, for coordinate. i am with reese with russia for brooklyn, new york thought me to and i see the void, me of you would you were heard freely of ever have feelings are running high and all that go see a sions and the diplomacy them going on that very day. so was this unexpected, this incident last night, given everything? julia's said, these provocations haven't simply been going on for a couple weeks. they've been happening for quite some time. there's been quite a pattern of escalation of the u. s. media has been playing up this idea that russia is planning an invasion of ukraine. russia has been adamant that they are not doing any such thing. we now have joe biden coming forward and saying that as a result of his recent talks with putin or the threat of russia supposedly invading ukraine, a has been lifted up. but we have various voices in us media who are saying they're not so sure about biden's effectiveness in terms of diplomacy. and they think there
4:20 pm
could be a danger of war on the horizon. here's some of what we've heard. do not discount no matter how far fetched it may seem, a hot war with russia. yes, that is a lunatic idea. but that doesn't mean joe biden won't do it. now these statements don't seem baseless. if you look at what's actually been taking place along the border, you can talk about the intensification of activity from u. s. strategic bomber aviation. and russia has come forward and said that the united states is actually, we're her sing dropping, dropping nuclear bombs near the ukranian russian border. this point, members of the u. s. congress are coming out and saying that they would consider bombing russia. now, there's been a firestorm of criticism from their colleagues. i would not rule out american troops on the ground. we don't do, you know, we don't rule out 1st use nuclear action. any
4:21 pm
one who would propose or even consider what he is saying as an option, must be insane. a sociopath or a status launch a nuclear attack that would start a war that would destroy the american people, our country and world, so that we can save ukraine's democracy. i mean, it, it literally is insane. now the backdrop for all of this is the intense division within u. s. society i, we have a situation in the white house, says one thing, other politicians are saying something completely different will be waiting to see how this further develops. rushes for a ministries criticize the worse for its behavior after ukraine in warship approach to russian territory. bonnie: it could lead to conflict in europe. no, that's absolutely wrong. we've read that before and we, and we also spoke to a journalist north at thomas fast, bender, you think said escalation of ukraine must be stopped before it's spirals. other control has got a thomas fast spending. now i believe the situation on the ground in ukraine
4:22 pm
is perhaps worse to war because that is where people are dying. people are dying. people are suffering. people are going through through hell and have been going through hell for many years now. we have, we have seen the united states pacifically pumping weapons into ukraine for the ukrainian military. and these are weapons b, b, b, they a javelin miss are supplied by the united states or by dr. drones supplied by turkey. these are, these are weapons that are flowing into you credit and immediately going to the conflicts of where the civil war is being fought in the east of ukraine. there are more than 2000000 civilians are trapped in the conflict soon in east than ukraine. and they're just having to brave without people going to sending their kids to school. they will have to worry about a tang cello, a mortar, round landing. they're on the grounds of the school. vladimir putin is like and what is happening to a walker sort of. so she,
4:23 pm
i should say that russo foby as the 1st step towards genocide. what's going on and on bass now very much resembles genocide. we see it and we know about it, or we hear about is these potential plans emanating from the she i of the white house, the british government. these plans that no one previously knew about that russia was planning to invade. a huge area of ukraine was unclear how they would be able to achieve this with, with, even if we believe the see i and others with, with such a small force. but let's look at what is happening again on the ground. you have the o. s. c, that reporting on sees fire violation, so their work is constant and round the clock. ukrainian artillery and forces destroyed or damaged 5 times more civilian infrastructure at schools at workplace as that is people's homes. 5 times more infrastructure was destroyed and damaged by
4:24 pm
ukrainian forces. the vice versa, you also have the situation in which you, ukraine, still still 6 years on, refuses to negotiate with the breakaway republics. aside from that, there are also all manner of promises and assurances that ukraine keeps on hearing from, from britain, from the united states that they've got their back, that thou help them, that they'll keep the russians away. and what i, what that does is it emboldens you credit. and unfortunately, the situation is such that aside from very one sided coverage, you have a situation in which piece simply isn't desirable. let's go, well it tonight, isn't it? that was our senior correspondent. we're against it. now we could go to thomas fast, bender cheerless and ortho who are also chipped in about it and thinks it's a escalation of ukraine must be stopped before it may be potentially spiraled at a control. there is sir, something that has not been here for decades. that is, of the perspective, the real perspective or for
4:25 pm
a major european war. so he and now the key for a potential war in europe lives now 100 percent with the are the key of government if key, if decides to provoke a russian invasion and that there will be a russian invasion as soon as key of starts a major offensive against the break away republics are in that case automatically. busy the blank shack will be full of. busy western support for the ukrainian side. so the western narrative says that whatever i crimea or whatever, a key if does to reclaim or even re conquer or the break away republics, or even crimea, m would be executing their sovereign rights on their sovereign territory. and we should hold that there are there that both her washington and moscow and of course are all to also of paris in berlin. understand that there is a real risk of
4:26 pm
a european war here. now, new in the u. s. is facing his highest annual inflation rate in 39 years with price increase is seen across many sectors for 6 months in a row in november prices for you as consumers jumped 6.8 percent compared to the previous year. this acceleration triggered by the corona virus pandemic, and spread from us all spheres from food and energy to house rentals and cars. but the u. s. federal reserve is still hesitant to undertake serious measures like raising interest rates a tron curb. inflation has got to peter early in the year, or is he from the american shoot for economic research? peter is going well here tonight. think inflations of faith in us. hello there. thanks. a been live on the program. so moderate inflations generally regarded as a hope that helpful facts of the economy. but so what about these current figures? it's a step too far for ordinary people trying to pay their bills and that yes, thanks gregory. so there's a view that low level inflation is, is good to be economy. i'm not sure i subscribe to that, but certainly the kind of inflation we're seeing now is very pernicious and it
4:27 pm
breaks down as many aspects of the economy in many ways bite must accomplish town earlier in november. seems so steady to, to now, to says can be around for a while to come. and now we've got the highest inflation rates nearly for decades. where is it going to go it, is it just because of the pandemic, or is there more behind it? no, so definitely the pandemic or rather the central banking responses. the panoramic is the main factor that's creating in place right now. last year, the federal reserve increased the years. one is our supply by between 30 and 40 percent, and the root cause inflation is lots of money chasing the same are fewer goods and services for this was to make the post pandemic, boom was, you know, more jobs, etc, etc. but there's a product to play. absolutely. what's best than the post pump pandemic boom, or low inflation for people? well, i mean, you know, the defense decision was, i guess, somewhat understandable, but the size of increase it in was massive. one wonders if they needed to do that
4:28 pm
and certainly they do it and coordination with other central bags, which makes what's happening right now. somewhat predictable, i think. so interest rate is going to shoot up a wall. well, the debt is going to try to lift interest rates due to tamp down to this question, but they can't do they stop to open market bond purchases and they said they won't stop that until april or may of next year. so give me a while. was in place, may get a bit higher before they're able to do that. and what's a good, a main for average paypal with the families trying to pay their bills in the she in the short term over the next year. then what's a good, i mean for biden's rating, so you going to handle things? it's tricky, isn't it? why mean, i mean lucky thing for binders is rage can't get much lower. most of it but, but in terms of normal people like certainly there's a couple of not only people who need to spend more to buy the things that they want, but also it becomes hard to budget and, and families can't plan. businesses can plan. inflation steals efficiency is still productivity and still purchasing power. it's very hard to find
4:29 pm
a silver lining to any of that. and of course, with coven, still rife, we've got this to you. i'm a chronic cetera. by the go wild in britain, the saying is probably going to hit america as well sometimes. so even if you know, even if tampa put on it for now it's probably going to take off. does anyone benefit from, from high inflation, by the way? here they are even really benefit from high inflation, systematically, or creditors. because if you take debt and inflation rises, you wind up paying off that debt in cheaper, which is a mess, less valuable currency, whether it's dollars or pounds or whatever. so in a sense, we should hires inflation rather promotes higher levels of debt, which is also a bad thing. it's an ill when the blows nobody, any good, somebody one said i was try what? i've got it wrong. peter, a research fellow at the american institute for economic research. thanks for coming and explaining it to us. thank you. i finally this say, an american act to jesse small letters being found guilty of lying to police, but a hate crime against him which turned out to be stage, but not everyone,
4:30 pm
even at this stage still is willing to accept the decision b, l m brands jessie small at trial as a white supremacist charade. pledging support for the actor ahead of the burden. we can never believe police. it's not about a trial or a verdict decided in a white supremacist charade. it's about how we treat our community. when her up systems are working to devalue their lives, racial identity, a we're liable indicator of trust for dea lemme. but what if everyone in the trial is actually black? just the small, let found guilty of staging, a hate crime against himself. awesome day road brothers. the attack, as he paid to beat him and yelled racial slurs, chicago police department superintendence. could have been a tough one for b, l m. thank god, there's always an enemy, there be a scapegoat. we find ourselves once again being forced to put our lives and our
4:31 pm
value in the hands of judges and juries operating in
