ah hello, i just gone 6 p. m this sunday evening. here in moscow you watching the weekly anata international attentions over ukraine ran hi this week with russia criticizing the west for fueling, the escalation and voicing concern at native actions in the region. moscow says they could potentially lead to a large scale conflict with the escalation occurred after ukrainian navy ship approach russian waters without authorization on thursday evening. a move that russia regarded as a threat to the navigational safety of other vessels in the area. ukraine denied all allegations though, and insisted that the ship was an unarmed search and rescue vessel that return never entered restricted waters or post any threat, and it did eventually change course to will ukraine. it was the main topic of discussion between vladimir putin and joe biden. on tuesday,
10:02 am
the u. s. president pointed at what he called the threatening nature of russian troop movements near the ukrainian border and said that severe sanctions were being drawn up. moscow though, insist sick can move it troops wherever it wants to, in its own territory. while saying its nato, which is making dangerous moves, or the crumb nick kremlin spokesperson talk to artie about how nato's actions are being regarded, him, russia and his student id 2 acres, which with the rhetoric coming from the u. s. and e. u. leaders sounds pretty aggressive. we see plenty of fake news about russia allegedly planning and aggressive invasion. at the same time, no one talks to key of non warns key of against even thinking of a military intervention in the done yet, scandal, guns, conflict, marina. mr. murphy shown to most now we see that nato is taking an extremely aggressive position burst. they all say they don't accept any red lines. second, they say that nato will do whatever it wants. 3rd, it will do it on whatever territory it wants forth. all of this is aimed to deter
10:03 am
russia. we do not like that. we will do everything to ensure our own interests are wide crane and the where still the keys rush or of arming. the self proclaimed republics in east in ukraine. the u. s. is overly sending arms 10 key f. washington reveal that 30 javelin anti tank missiles systems were delivered to ukraine, back in october, as part of a $60000000.00 military aid package and a further $200000000.00 or on the table. t am with the ongoing military build up on russia's borders. the g 7 group of advanced economies is threatened to russia with a severe response if it attack she crane. moscow though, denies any plans of invasion, as we said, and in says it is nato which poses a threat to russia by expanding further east close to its borders. the white house, though, does believe that only it has the right to draw the line. yes,
10:04 am
of course, the diplomacy is out and red lines of that to be crossed when the big bad wolf is planning a land grab ring a bell. a similar warning came in the spring when russian troops gathered for snap training exercises. and again, when military drills were conducted in crimea, and only recently moscow was supposedly the mastermind of the qu, in key of remember the currency of no mean either because it didn't happen. in fact, none of the predictions came true, but this time apparently it's different. this time, it's the real deal, and to feed the fair, even drawing up the kremlin battle plans the new year offensive. and for the umpteenth time this year, russia is forced to defend the presence of its own troops on its own land. russia is not a threat to any country. the deployment of russian troops on the national territory
10:05 am
is our sovereign roy and no one's business. it is nato on its members states a recklessly moving their military forces and infrastructure to the russian borders . so what is washes red line, us spy pains jetting towards rushes borders. passenger jets with hundreds of civilians on board. diverted because the nato re complain was to close and wouldn't respond to ground control. the actions by the u. s. air force created a threat to civilization and the fact that the catastrophe was averted over the backseat doesn't mean that the u. s. and nato can go on the risk in people's lives with impunity. the latest american war ship sailing into waters bordering russia. what the shows was nature, you know, a u. s. warship has now entered the block. see, we can see it through binoculars or the crosshairs of a defense system system. a better one or multiple missile systems just across the it was a bit more to look at where nato's military infrastructure is located, just
10:06 am
a short distance from our borders. in romania, poland, lansing, we saw defense systems have already been deployed and they can easily be converted into offensive missile systems that targets us. it only takes a matter of minutes to change the software. now instinct tells me that if a russian destroy, i was spotted steaming into new york harbor, it would be a flaming red line for washington. but believe it or not, for us all, this is a pink line at best. the real issue is nato, or rather, nato's expansion and expanded it has from this humble state in 1990 to this empire in 2020. now back in the day, russia was promised, nato would grow not one inch eastward of berlin. wel, that's berlin. so no, it's not an ent, it's over a 1000 kilometers. and now it's knocking at rushes door. ukraine joining
10:07 am
nato and we've been talking about it for a long time. is a red line for us. the continual drawing of keys into the military orbit of the alliance, the de facto stuart of nature's assimilation of the military infrastructure of this country. and the desire to turn it into a foothold for confrontation with russia could all cause severe negative consequences and destabilize the military and political situation in europe. but lucky for nato, it's got a gas out of jail free card because in politics, well promises are made to be broken. where is that? where is that written down? where is that from was written down. and under the rumor, this friend of mine will enrich current which it didn't quicker when us mcmurry to go in. in the meantime, the u. s. unfazed by it's terrible track record of predicting russian behavior is covering its bases and drawing up some economic sanctions. you know, just in case ask his eyes reporting now we're speaking of sanctions, washington has already threatened moscow with extreme measures and globally such penalties are
10:08 am
a central to of us foreign policy. america has just irritated beijing to you by imposing a diplomatic boy cotton chinese upcoming winter olympics. and it's also imposed sanctions and 14 officials and 4 entities in iran and syria over alleged rights and pieces. we discussed the role and impact of americans peanuts have policies with a panel of guess essentially got you've got to you walk into the u. s. american exceptionalism and, and supremacy. and they are basically, they're, they're, they're doing whatever they can. do you know where we're married? it's a very arrogant, aggressive policy that they used to sanctions. and if it really is a means to destabilize other countries, sovereign nations and create economic hardship earlier, why do you think america is threatening to sanction russia for something that a has not happened? and b will not happen according to the kremlin?
10:09 am
i think in one way it's a political move on that side. the other part is they, we need it, we need a bogeyman and i think partially, there were luther are in it's kind of like a rabid dog. you know, you start to lash out in different ways, trying to protect yourself. and with the only one policy we have of the sentence is this kind of destructive approach to international relations. but it's, it's just so silly because ultimately is throwing off the brunt. he was sitting on . how do you think that the continental united states is going to survive if it makes a devastated mess of the rest of the world? do you think any western power seriously believes russia as a by to invade ukraine? you know, it's hard to understand the logic, what could moscow stand to gain from, from starting a war? well, i think that the western governments do well know that this is rather at blame game
10:10 am
. they make of the public belief that russia is a real threat to the ukraine at the moment. russia is really in defense because they have to fear that a ukraine will become a part of the nato alliance. and this is of course, a major threat to the geopolitical setting of russia. cutting russia off. busy from swift would be the most extreme of measures deployed yet it help into iran, devastated the economy there. is there any chance of washington pursuing what's being called a nuclear option based on their questionable diplomats that they potentially good. i would think be very unwise move. very little impact, i think internally, externally it would, it would kind of back fire. i would think rub europeans would be very strongly lobbying against such an action. and if you're going to set off to do something like that, presumably not the goal. but let's just like opening
10:11 am
a black hole under the international banking system, we're seeing what's happening and showing with a grunt warbling in the property market, possibly going down. the drain. uncle says that happens that's going to pull down the western banking system potentially adult day for journalism at his high junior sonjee supports his have reacted to the british high court ruling on friday, that the wiki lease finder can be expedited to the u. s. washington. one is a pale against the previous decision blocking his son from being sent to america to face trial on espionage charges. campaign is slammed. the latest move which was handed down on the un human rights de we condemn today's u. k. high court decision to allow the expedition of julian so on, so the us, which will prove historic for all the wrong reasons. we fully believe. but julian, a saw and just been targeted for his contributions to journalism. back in october, those a to day, harry, i was the united states trying to appeal over numerous grounds,
10:12 am
including the fact that it offered an unprecedented package of assurances, as i saw it would not be held under the maximum security the strictest, maximum security conditions in prison. over there and that he isn't unwell this thing he's made out. well judith 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, not any point. class is also concerned about the trustworthiness of america's guarantees to pointing to one of those reports in the year that the cia had prompted to kidnap during the saw and put it to kill him. speaking outside the high court this morning, we've heard from stella morris to partner who's incredibly disappointed and she's saying why and how is this happening for? how long can this go on today is international human rights day?
10:13 am
what a shame, how cynical to, how this decision on this day to have one of the foremost the foremost publisher journalists of the past, 50 years in a u. k. prison, accused of publishing the truth about or crimes about cia killed teams. many people have been supporting her outside here. many, many protests is that also are similar questions. who is a glimmer of hope that you know, the british justice system might actually prevail for once? the british judiciary. this is on every level with the u. s. campaign to get a july to 10 years, 10 years in the streets of london. public opinion in the side of a sound. but obviously,
10:14 am
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 at home? stay on the fight to free judy. massage the troy, so we will prevail eventually many people outside of the high court say, where is the human rights? in the case of june assange, obviously we're still on the 4 grounds of the royal court of justice that they call it the royal courts of injustice out of a diplomatic. now, i with julian assad, beyond a, just as i said, it was being announced, i protest even through eggs at this side, directly behind me, which just goes to show, are the sentiment and feeling here on the streets of london at which dash reporting
10:15 am
there from the court this week. now here's how it reached this point in 2019 jiggling. the sounds was forcefully removed by british police from ecuador embassy in london. after the country terminated his 7 year asylum there, and saw refuge after sexual assault allegations in sweden, which were later dropped british authorities and arrested him on a separate charge of jumping bail. america. once the wicked leagues found extradited, his own claims of conspiring to hat, government computers and publishing classified material. meanwhile, assigned his fiance claims he suffered a stroke during a hearing in october. we can, excited from chief kristin had often seen talk to us following fridays really was actually unbelievable. and so i run a good disposition should be handed on the united nations human rights. the united states had all opportunity in the medicine court to make those so called us your
10:16 am
and it did not. it simply press them forward. after the last in the menus court, in general, the united states had given assurances that the they would to treat the julian fairly and he would get the treatment and be housed in an adequate to jail and could even serve his entrance. 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 i found that the last 6 months worth of 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 sons. this is not a case that is being fought on the basis of the law. this is an absolute travesty
10:17 am
of any legal process. this is a political case, and the julian arrest us we have said for many, many years is a political persecution to come home, the weekly unprecedented tornadoes have been wreaking havoc across central and southern us, leaving many dead in injured that story. and more after the break ah ah, i
10:18 am
herman died, dreamer shaped bankers are those with dares sinks. we dare to ask oh, hello again. devastating storms have ripped through central and southern parts of the united states with kentucky suffering some of the worse damage. president biden
10:19 am
said the tornadoes could be the most disastrous in american history or rescue workers have already found more than 40 missing people amid the damage buildings, and there are concerns. the number of deaths could exceed 100 shelters, have been opened with the help of the red cross. and kentucky's governor has declared a state of emergency. his local reporter, edgar costa, severe destruction that we can see in many places across different states were several tornadoes have, he did really part the worst part. here in mayfield, kentucky. the governor of the state announced that 70 people lost their lives on these tragic abbey. so this has been the most devastating tornado of that. in our state's history, the level of devastation is unlike anything i've ever seen. satellite far too many homes. but people were likely an entirely devastated this will be,
10:20 am
i believe, the deadliest tornado system to ever run through kentucky. the devastation we can see here in the city center. he says something that will take a long time to recuperate. but many people took the streets. we can see lots of see to see that got together to do all they can wendy's hard time with isa picked his head. he showed the remains of a candle factory that was hit by a tornado. its reef collapse and authorities to say more than a 100 people may have been inside when the storm struck. tornadoes have also torn through other parts of the us. 6 people a dead in the state of illinois where the roof of an amazon warehouse is brought down during the storm. and then in arkansas, one person is thought of being killed and 5 seriously injured after tornado damage to nursing home. there many others were trapped inside and the severe weather is also claimed at least 4 lives in tennessee. as it was shock in the russian capital on tuesday when a man shot dead,
10:21 am
2 people in a dispute over wearing a mask, his hair. the incident unfolded the solution. i knew alexa slept, we worked together for about 4 months. why was the cloakroom attendant? he was a security guard and he was a kind, hard working man, a good man. there were never any problems with him. and he always told me funny stories and anecdotes i found out earlier today that there was ambulances and police that we thought it was a bomb threat. what there would be in
10:22 am
a fire. but you found out that there been a shooting with dead and wounded. and among the dead, i saw the name of the man i worked with ah, he pointed the gun at me, but apparently something jumped. he banded against his leg and a shot to the floor. i looked over and saw the girl line by reception and shouting, help, please, what's wrong with my legs? the letter of which a minister i was at my workplace and heard of far alarm as well as a sound similar to gunshot. and i saw a man running towards the exit of the building. at that moment, i made a decision to detain him, and i ran off to him. he resisted arrest. i saw that he was carrying a knife and a firearm. when i was detaining him, i made sure he couldn't use these weapons and neutralized him or
10:23 am
american journalist being threatened with massive fines if they work, what are perceived to be the wrong publications. contributors to a site called the strategic culture foundation have received stern warnings from the us treasury with the letter will send to douglas and also michael virchow, who are both new york based. you missed, it does say that the s c, f is on the list of band organizations accused of election meddling the us citizens who engage in transactions with the foundation over our live or to find that at least $300000.00 that was shared his own experience with this it was a warning regarding future articles. so essentially, if i write for sci fi and gauge and any kind of transaction, which i assume means a, an exchange of money i could be had with massive fines that were completely destroy
10:24 am
my finances. so i was taken aback, i was, you know, concerned certainly, but actually i had stopped writing for the yes. since the previous, you know, 4 or 5 months earlier. so i didn't feel personally threatened. but others who, who want to continue writing for the f works dreamily frightened fair. they have all stopped writing for the site because really, there's just, it's, you know, it's impossible to, to battle the us treasury in this kind of case. the u. s. treasury's power is, is enormous and that of a, of an individual freelance journalist is always microscopic. but some of them are so frightened, they're unwilling even to give interviews like this one. so, you know, so this is what a shilling effect means. they're, they're unwilling to write and they're unwilling even to talk about why they, why they're too afraid to right now, the threats to make out part of the targeted sanctions campaign that was the 9th by the treasury secretary, back in april, treasury will target russian leaders,
10:25 am
officials, intelligence services and their proxies that attempt to interfere in the us electro process or bertie as democracy. this is the start of a new u. s. campaign against russian line behavior. the u. s. government claims the strategic culture foundation is in fact, controlled by russia's foreign intelligence agency, b s p r, and that is also linked to the russian foreign ministry. the foundation, though denies this, of course, itself a research platform about ration global affairs, but generally does say a dangerous precedent has already been set. i think that the, that the at the s c f, the foundation hosts honest journalism. even though out i don't, i don't agree with much of it. this is, this is serious work by serious journalists. and that is a supporter of a free speech and a free press. i believe that readers should have access to this. ready kind of stuff and, and yet if the u. s. government is trying to close it down and therefore trying to
10:26 am
stop information, which is usually at variance with official us policy. from reaching from reaching audiences, including audiences in the us, to stop journalists from writing for these kinds of websites as a new step. and i think that and i was surprised because because the united states, in fact has a very good track record on when it comes to a free press. i mean, in america, we can say anything we want. yeah, i can write that with the most outrageous things about george w bush or joe biden, and not have to worry for a moment about the search secret police crashing through my door. but now things may be changing slightly, and it doesn't the order. well, be march in the weekly here in our teams national this sunday. we'll be back with more stories from that, our 7 days in about half an ah
10:27 am
. well, the pandemic. no, certainly no board is a piece of flesh as emerge. we don't have a therapy, we don't have a vaccine. the whole world needs to take action and to be ready people are judgment. 2 common crisis with we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way. but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is great, the response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together with
10:28 am
what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on, often very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical. i'm time to sit down and talk with me
10:29 am
and on. welcome to as a part of chanting to steal cute christmas in a row. covered 19 is once again going in for the kill you on a con. darian has already left 2 restrictions in air travel, looking cancellation, but it's effect business maybe forced by the pressure on already strain healthcare systems. how solid are our defenses? again, this seemingly omnipotent and on the present shape shifting to discuss that i'm now joined by lauren's young ologist at the university of boring to young. it's good to see you. thank you very much for taking time to talk to us. thank you. now, as you know, i'm a kind of was named after the 50, out of the 24 letters of the alphabet. and it seems to be gaining notoriety as it moves along. how strong are the chances of mutations potential being exhausted before the greek alphabet?
10:30 am
no matter what's an interesting question, we don't look with any virus infection, the spreading, you'll get changes, you'll get mutations that has been happening all the while. and of course, these mutations all sort of selected for those that are going to be more infectious or data are able to evade part of our immune system. so we're seeing this all the time. the only way to quote this actually is to get people vaccinated actually spread the virus. so sadly, these viruses are popping up all the time. many of us who get infected will be infected with more than one variant anyway. and it's just a bit of a game in terms of chasing the genetics of the virus and trying to suppress these changes by dampening transmission. and the way you do that is by vaccination. so i hope we get to a phase where we don't have to exhaust the whole of the greek alphabet, but i only have 9 letters left. and given the in the speed of the mutations, it looks like this. maybe the case and i read the the other day that it will, how we're going to zation is already contemplating naming you variance after the
