go and scientific establishment for what's driving the obesity epidemic. it's corporate mocking moon and the stories that shaped the weak tensions spiral after a ship belonging to ukraine's navy approaches of russian waters without authorization. something moscow has slammed as a threatening prop, the cation described as a dark day for journalism. selina sanchez, supporters lash out at the london hi court ruling to allow his possible extradition to the united states. yet another hearing is now needed to decide his fate. is it's not a case that it's being pulled on. they still to more, this is an absolutely, travis, do any legal process and it's devastating tornadoes tear through parts of america, claiming at least 80 lives in the state of kentucky. alone with the death toll feared to exceed $100.00. joe biden says it is possibly the worst tornado outbreak
10:01 pm
in us. history ah, broadcasting live direct, more studios in moscow. this is our international. i'm john thomas. glad to have you with us. as we recap to weeks, top stories with our weekly program are now tensions over ukraine ran high this week with russia criticizing the west for fueling, the escalation and voicing concern nato's actions in the region. moscow saying it could potentially lead it to a larger scale. conflict escalation happened after a ship belonging to the ukranian navy approached rushing 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 and insisted the ship was an unarmed search and rescue vessel that never entered restricted waters or opposed to any threat. and it did eventually
10:02 pm
change course. ukraine was the main topic of discussion between vladimir putin and joe biden. on tuesday, the u. s. president pointed out what he called the threatening nature of russian troop movements near the ukrainian border and said severe sanctions were being drawn up. moscow though insists it can move its troops wherever once on its own territory, while saying it's nato that is making the dangerous move. the gremlins spokesperson talk to r t about how nato's actions are being regarded in russia. you see jeanette into which is restoration coming from the u. s. and e u leaders sounds pretty aggressive . we see plenty of fake news about russia allegedly planning an aggressive invasion . at the same time, no one talks to kia, non warns kiev, again, even thinking of a military intervention in the when you done homework, moving in on that issue and you must, you know, we need the need. so if you're taking an extremely aggressive issue, they all say they don't take steps, any red line, photo beck,
10:03 pm
and they say the nato would do what everyone wants, that it will do it on whatever territory want to any florida that all of that a russia. we do not like dining, but we will do everything and insure our own interest. while ukraine and the west accuse russia of arming the self proclaimed republics in eastern ukraine. the u. s . is openly sending arms to give washington revealed that 30 javelin anti tank missile systems were delivered to ukraine in october. as part of a $60000000.00 military aid package. and a further $200000000.00 are on the table as well. and with the ongoing military build up on russia's borders, the g 7 group of advanced economies has threatened russia with a severe response if it attacks ukraine. moscow though, denies any plans of invasion and insists it is nato that poses a threat to russia by expanding for the east, closer to its borders. but the white house believes that only it has the right to draw the line. oh,
10:04 pm
of course, the diplomacy is out and read 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 coo in kiev. remember the currency of know me neither 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, they're 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.
10:05 pm
russia is not a threat to any country. the deployment of russian troops on the national territory 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, u. s. spy paint 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 create the threat to civil aviation and the fact that the catastrophe was averted over the backseat doesn't mean that the u. s. nato can go on the risk in people's lives with impunity. the latest american war ship sailing into waters bordering russia. what the ship was major, you know, a u. s. warship has now entered the black sea when we can see it through binoculars or the crosshairs of our defense system. shoot you a better one or multiple missile systems just across the it would be
10:06 pm
a lot more to look at where nato's military infrastructure is located, not just a short distance from other orders. in romania, roland bush, granted me song of insistence has already been deployed. and they can easily be converted into offensive miss austin single targets us. it only takes a matter of minutes to change the software. and the dispute. now, instinct tells me that if a russian destroy 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 expand it, 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. well, 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 pm
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 start of natives, 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. there is that where is that written down? where is that from? was written down donald rumeliotis. when a man wanted rich girl nature didn't quantica want us not to go in. in the mean time the us 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. and now the ongoing frictions have placed the recently completed nord stream to pipeline under threat. it runs from russia to germany under the baltic
10:08 pm
sea and is awaiting its official launch. however, the u. s. top diplomat, anthony blinking has said it is unlikely gas will flow through it, repeating the claim of moscow's aggression against ukraine. daniel shaw a professor at the city university of new york questions whether other countries wouldn't be allowed to behave like america does. this is part of the ramping up of economic, military and diplomatic pressure on russia. it's nato in the us. they continue to encroach upon rushes, borders. the absolute hypocrisy that's on display here with blinking and biden's threats to try to cripple the rushing economy. imagine if it was russia surrounding the united states, the way the nato in the u. s. continually encroaches into the black sea into estonia into ukraine. so ukraine is the latest justification to continue this new
10:09 pm
cold war. this new global class struggle was really behind. this is fear in us ruling circles of a sovereign strong russia. the dark day for journalism is how jolena sanchez supporters reacted to the british high court ruling on friday that the wiki leaks founder can be extradited to the u. s. washington. one, it's appeal against a previous decision blocking a san from being sent to america to face trial on espionage charges. campaigners slammed the latest move which was handed down on what was the un human rights to 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, assault just been targeted for his contributions to journalism. back in october, those a to day, harry, i was the united states try to appeal over numerous grounds,
10:10 pm
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 maxim security conditions in prison. over there and that he isn't on well, is being, he's made out. well, judas sanchez lewis of continue 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's guarantees to pointing to one of those report sell in the, in the c i a i had talked to kidnap during the saw and put it to kill them. speaking outside the high court here this morning, we've heard from stella morris to partner who is 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?
10:11 pm
what a shame, how cynical to have this decision on this day to have one of the foremost the foremost publisher journalist of the past, 50 years in a u. k. prison, accused of publishing the truth about or crimes about cia killed teams. many people perhaps 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 the u. s. campaign to get a is 10 years, 10 years in the streets of london, public opinion and business side, a sound. but obviously, the judge's decision is not on the side of public opinion. it's absolutely
10:12 pm
devastating. so she, this time of year to another christmas, without doing that is children without their data. stay on to fight to free judy massage. that's what i say. we will prevail eventually, many people outside as a high court say, where is the human rights? in the case of june assange, obviously listed on the full grounds of the royal court of justice. but they called at the royal court of injustice. a diplomatic, a just as i think was being announced, i protest even through eggs this side directly behind me, which just goes to show the sentiment in feeling here on the streets of london.
10:13 pm
briefly here is how it got to this point in 2000. 19 julian songs was forcefully removed by british police from ecuador embassy in london. after the country terminated his 7 year asylum there, he had sought refuge after sexual assault allegations and sweden, which were later dropped british authorities arrested him on a separate charge of jumping bail. america wants the wiki leaks founder extradited on claims of conspiring to hack a government computers and publishing classified material. meanwhile, sanchez fiance claimed he suffered a stroke during a hearing in october wiki leaks, editor in chief christian preference and talked to us following fridays ruling was actually unbelievable. and so i run a good decision 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 and it did not. it simply press them forward after the last in the menus of court
10:14 pm
in january, the united states had given assurances that the 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 new 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 the, those us you are. and so some of the work, 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 langley, they're 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 travis to any legal process. this is a political case,
10:15 pm
and the julian arrest us we have said for many, many years is a political persecution. devastating storms have ripped through central and southern parts of the u. s. in what joe biden has described as possibly the worst tornado outbreak in the country's history. the state of kentucky has suffered the worst damage with the governor saying the death toll is currently at 80 people and he was fearful. it could exceed $100.00. in the city of mayfield, more than 100 people were trapped inside and collapsed factory building while emergency workers have managed to rescue about 40 of them. shelters have been set up with the help of the red cross. and the governor has declared a state of emergency a worst most devastating, most deadly tornado event in kentucky's history. is
10:16 pm
our home town and it's just devastating. everybody's welfare laws were shaken. house collapse in a gas. if you see where the whole house is buckled, the well back side of this house is all total devastation for our town most for historic buildings are now gone. with this is likely to one of the largest toyota operates in our history. entire towns were destroyed as 30 powerful tornadoes, ravaged across 6 that us states the worst affected can saki,
10:17 pm
and needs help support and relief 8. and so it turns to the government's on fellow americans. but politics, it's politics. and it seems not even a monumental disaster, like this one can bridge america's political divide. and some believe it's a perfect opportunity to show that you reap what you sow. when hurricane harvey's hit in 2017, the 17 senators who voted against a bill to provide billions of dollars in relief, will all republicans among them, kentucky's sen, round pull. once again thousands are suffering, but there is no time like the present for political punches. we should do all we can to help our kentucky neighbors. good be wisdom. they're hurting, but do not for one second. forget that rand pole has voted against help. and most americans, most times, very neat. we know, rand paul is a heartless hypocrite. the people in kentucky deserve relief, regardless of their before initial leadership. much of the dance don't use this
10:18 pm
against him and his party in the future. it is a missed opportunity for some it's not even off limits to suggest that if you vote read, then you had it coming, vote for climate change denials and see what happens. tornadoes in december read, but weather climate change was a factor is not clear at this point. still is the country reels in shock and concerns the climate change peak. it could also play into the democrats hands as they bid to push a $1.00 trillion dollar climate package through the senate. all i know is that the intensity of the weather across the board has some impacts. as a consequence of the warming of the planet and the climate change. and so it seems something as devastating as this can only what's the appetite for those looking to score political points. the american journalists are being threatened with massive fines if they work for what are
10:19 pm
perceived to be the wrong publications to contributors to a site called strategic culture. foundation have received a stern warnings from the us treasury treasury. this letter, for example, was sent to daniel lazar and michael virchow, who are both new york based journalists. it says the s c f is on the list of banned organizations accused of election meddling, and that us citizens who engage in transactions with the foundation are liable to fines of at least $300000.00. daniels are shared. his experience with us. 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 my finances. i was taken aback. i was, you know, concerned certainly, but actually i stopped writing for se yes, since the previous, you know, 4 or 5 months earlier. so i didn't feel personally threatened. but others who,
10:20 pm
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 us treasury is power is, is, is enormous. and that of a, of an individual freelance journalist is 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 it's showing 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 write the threats to make up part of a targeted sanctions campaign announced by the treasury secretary back in april treasury will target russian leaders, officials intelligence services and their proxies that attempt to interfere in the us electro process or so bertie has democracy. this is the start of a new u. s. campaign against russian line behavior. the u. s. government claims the
10:21 pm
strategic culture foundation is in fact, controlled by russia's foreign intelligence agency, the f b r, and that it's also linked to the russian foreign ministry. the foundation denies this and calls itself a research platform about your asian global affairs. but daniel is, are, says, a dangerous precedent has already been set. i think that the, that the at the s e. s, the foundation hosts honest journalism. even though out i don't, don't agree with much of it. this is, this is serious work by serious journalists and that as a supporter of a free speech in a free press, i believe that readers should have access to this. ready kind of stuff and, and yet the, the u. s. government is trying to close down. and therefore, trying to stop information, which is usually at variance with the official us policy from reaching from reaching audiences, including audiences in the us, to stop journalists from writing for these kinds of websites as
10:22 pm
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. 2 things may be changing slightly and doesn't order well. there is a shock in the russian capital on tuesday when a man opened fire during a dispute over wearing masks, killing 2 employees and a public services office. here's how the deadly incident unfolded. the
10:23 pm
the the solution i knew alexa ross left, 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 ambulance isn't police. that we thought it was a bomb threat with there have been a fire. we found out that there have been a shooting with dead and wounded. and among the dead, i saw the name of that man i worked with the he pointed the gun at me, but apparently something jumped. he banded against his leg. and the shots you the floor, i'll walk to when so the girl lined by reception and shouting,
10:24 pm
help me please. what's wrong with my legs? the lot of what's your minister? i was at my workplace and heard of far alarm as well as the sound similar to gunshots. then 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. the new poll shows a noticeable change in the political choices of hispanic voters in the u. s. the cause for concern for the democratic party, which has traditionally had overwhelming support from that ethnic group. ortiz, keep them up and comments. growing number of americans who identify themselves as
10:25 pm
hispanic, are being drawn to the republican party. this long time, democratic party block has been softening according to the poles, latinos more and more becoming swing votes. is there a swing vote that we're going to have to fight full? you see in this whole that was a group of hispanic men who will, without a doubt, entice by trump and have become will republican yet i just, i was there all the same once they get their position. and they forget about everybody, especially us, the immigrants, they ignore us in some aspects they're fulfilling their promises. but in others, they've forgotten about us, such as education or the pandemic. in the recent virginia governor's race, more than half of latino voters gave their vote to glen young. can the republican compare that to just a year previously? when over 60 percent of latinos voted for biden, it appears the issue at hand. is joe biden's performance more than 54 percent? don't approve of the job that he's doing. more and more are switching parties
10:26 pm
saying the democratic party no longer reflects their values, the ideology of defendant, the police of destroy the oil and gas industry. and the chaos that our border is disastrous. for those of us who live here in south texas, after much consideration and prayer with my family, i feel that my fiscally conservative pro business and pro life values are no longer in step with a democratic party, up to date being hispanic, and also black eyes. i should be democrat, i'm going against their narrative, and i feel like right now, and everything is crumbling for the democrats biden is completely destroying the economy right now, and people can feel it in their pockets. now there's plenty to be upset about across the united states these days, and latinos are certainly among those affected 12 major cities in the united states have record homicide rates this year, and the price of food and gasoline just keeps staying high. apparently the democratic party is now reaching out to latino voters, calling them latin acts
10:27 pm
a gender neutral term. but apparently not all of this particular demographic are impressed with lee with down. that's why i don't. i don't like. i don't, i don't think we could be changing words because like a new generation, whatever, you know, i feel like it's a bunch of white liberals that are just trying to coach or answer someone know language ot. they can go through anything. but you know something that naturally it's like how does it come with leading and make those like okay, pretty cool. i'm pretty sure i'm in that group. and then after, wow, like why do we make my oh, why, why, why are we adding extra words? i mean, i'm still part of a group, but i'm still latino ray and so consider latino, latino. it's a sharp wake up call for the democratic party who presumptuous. lee assumed that latino would vote for them as usual. and the democrats are now having to earn their
10:28 pm
votes. now, the problem is, with all these negatives around the democrats and their performance. some think these efforts may come to little to late. caleb martin, r t new york. that does it for me this hour. i will be back with another look at your weekly and just under 32 minutes. stay with us or to international ah. back. kaiser's financial survival. god, housing, bravo. oh, you mean the downside, artificial mortgage for dr. carried away, trying to report ah
10:29 pm
with mm welcome to was a part time thing to steal cute christmas in a row. covered 19 is once again going in for the kill you on the con. darren has already left 2 restrictions in air travel and cookie cancellation, but it's a fact business may be forced by the pressure on already train health care systems . how solid are our defenses again, similarly omnipotent, and on the present chic discount that i'm now joined by lawrence young ologist at the university of warry. dr. 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, it was named after the 15th out of the $24.00 letters of the alphabet. and it seems
10:30 pm
to be gaining notoriety as it goes along. how showing that the chances of meditation potential being exhausted before the greek alphabet runs out of letters . that's an interesting question. we don't know with any virus infections spreading, you'll get changes, you'll get mutations. this 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 deed, are able to evade part of our immune system. so whizzing this all the time, the only way to is actually is to get people vaccinated. actually just spread the virus. so sadly, of 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,
10:31 pm
but i only have 9 let.
