11:00 am
lady that lives over there has walking one of the gods. this is why you where again we stay on nothing. they take it off. i think the people need to take responsibility into their own hands and be prepared if those kind of weapons were less available. we wouldn't have a lot of the shootings that we certainly wouldn't have the number of deaths. ah, the headlines here. what are you international ahead of nato vowels to keep expanding the western military alliance, bringing in new countries, despite protests from russia. at global fears spread over the new american barrier, the w h o europe director tells r t that it's vital to deliver vaccines where they needed most, including that of russia's put nick b. mm hm. including vaccines go beyond to politics. we should never take into account the country of origin. also in the
11:01 am
program, all sorts of channel and germany r t d is blocked by youtube when it comes to ours offer it launched its 1st ever broadcast in that country. ah, thursday night here at moscow and a very good evening to you from all of us here at asi, international, the secretary general of nato has said that can be no compromise on expanding the trans atlantic defense alliance. that is, despite colds from president putin, for guarantees that nato will not add new members right along russia's borders. ortiz shot a duplicate, has the latest on this quite a lot to digest from that press conference with the nato secretary general. but he talked about what he sees as being
11:02 am
a pattern of aggression coming from russia. and he said, nato will continue to do all it's necessary to ensure that the rights of its allies, its members, are protected in major supporting his opinion. does not mean that it's a threat to russia recently in north macedonia and also montenegro, both eastern european countries, very near the russian border. have both been accepted into the nato, a life that is despite protests from the russian government about batt, let's have a listen to what else yen stilton burke had to say. nato has proven over the last years that are open door policy is not only something we are support in words, but those in deeds parted by inviting to new countries. montenegro north muscle now to become members, so we have enlarged the line. so the last few years with 2 new members, despite protests from, from russia,
11:03 am
and also we are supporting ukraine in ukraine's efforts to come closer to natal membership. so he went on to talk about what he sees as rushes substantial and military and build up all the pool door areas with ukraine. and he said that that build up is a provocation. and that it could destabilize europe as well as russia's point of view. it has repeatedly denied that there is any intention, any build up that is looking to invade into ukraine. or we know that russia's foreign ministry spokesperson has slammed this sort of talk. and she said that such statements just will not help deescalate tensions in the region. at the shing a lot, this is, it is information campaign to, to crate. firstly, the image of russia is an aggressor. and secondly, additional tashing in the region, including the black sea, the russia crane border,
11:04 am
and se ukraine. this will not bring stability and security either in international relations or the regional agenda. it will undoubtedly complicate everything. meanwhile, journalists, primarily, of course, western journalist freely used the word aggressor, referring to our country. what right do they have to do this? i tried to understand this every time. when was the last time rush attacked? anyone? people need to back up this claim with arguments. and how many times have native countries attack to sovereign states in the last 20 years. how many special operations were carried out by the nato countries? kenny show me something him close to that from the russian site. no, there is nothing. you need to figure out where there are facts and where there is propaganda. now it's not just russia that saying, look, we north intending to invade ukraine. we're also hearing similar views from some of your groups leaders, for example, the prime minister of italy. this is mary a druggie, a said that he's been talking to president putin over the last few weeks and months
11:05 am
and as far as he's concerned invading ukraine. this idea isn't based on any fact that we've also heard warnings from the french president about this kind of talk hope so is suggesting that this more is brewing between russia and ukraine, could pull in other countries as well. president macro on saying at such talk doesn't help and actually could end up being a self fulfilling prophecy. oh, i live now through russia analyst on author martin mccauley. joining us live here one or 2 international a very good evening to you. so from all the way here in moscow, thanks for joining us. stole the book is insisting that nato will keep expanding you to think at this point that's even possible without inside in a direct confrontation with russia. oh, well the 2 countries which are joined your them, civilian montenegro do not border russia. the balkan countries in the on the riata can so on. so therefore that is not really aggressive moved from,
11:06 am
from nature's point of view. but countries like ukraine, georgia, more dover, and totally different. and at present, ukraine has said we'd like to join native, but that is not possible because one of the natives rulers criteria is that the frontiers must be secure. the must be no frontier. problems. and ukraine has a problem and therefore the kind of join, but they can have a close association. so on. and zelinski has been talking to talking bag. and he would like to know that a for that shooting or stocks in ukraine, if the russian started shooting war. if, of course, we'll need to come in and support your grade. and of course, the answer is no native has no intention of getting along and shooting more. russia started to do things. so lensky,
11:07 am
i'm sorry to jump in martin. but 2 things. lensky has come away from this meeting in brussels. perhaps a bit disappointed. he bought it nato troops and more weapons. but sultan burg basically has given him no promises. no the, when you make a perfect clear nature will not get involved in any type of military confrontation with russia and ukraine. germany vetoed the sending of offensive weapons to ukraine. nature can only provide defensive weapons to rain. so therefore, nato is very careful not to go beyond a certain line show as provoke russia. and therefore, from nature's point of view, they would like to create a problem to go away because they want to concern themselves with other problems. because from data point of view, the real challenge and wednesdays china, russia, is china, and nato has to think about the lines as to thinking about china. so think ukraine
11:08 am
is a problem, but they hope that it can be resolved by negotiation. once a president put it once is that native will concede that it will not get involved in, in ukraine or will not attempt to draw a ga into nato. well, my dog or any other country which borders on russia, into nieto and native president says mil, we can't do that because we keep everything open. you can't really align saying we can go to certain countries and other countries and so on. so from a nato point of view, it has to appear strong. it has to be dynamic. and it's, it's, it's showing a lot of bolstering and save ruffling, and of course to west. a media continues to bolster, i suppose one might say, but martin, i'm running low on time, but i wanted to ask you, russia is getting increasingly worried about various militia groups operating and
11:09 am
ukraine is accused nato of supporting them. in fact, the heart of the foreign ministry spokeswoman said that the militants are arriving ukraine in ukraine under the guise of being american military advisors. now nato insists the all this, while russia is the one being the aggressor. although it's nato weapons that continue to funnel into ukraine now, ever since the u. s. regime crew that might, i'm qu of 2014. what's your view here? who is the aggressor, martin? i wish said breton, there is no aggressor, both sides name one another. they claim the other side is the aggressor, as an outsider. you would say right? the russians of numbers younger troops from 100000 troops in winter quarters on, on the president border ukrainian. see that the aggression russian see that as a warning to nato not to penetrate ukraine, not to get involved in an offensive conflict in,
11:10 am
in ukraine. so therefore both sides see one another as aggressive. and they will argue their case ukraine case very strongly. why should come to invade, but there is no evidence in russia. aggression is going to dade, but russia wants to make sure that native stays outside nato and native plays a minor road, a diminishing road in ukraine, so that russia will feel more secure. and will make sure that nato, because nato is a very powerful military organization. does not want it approaching the russian front is and major has to, has to play a role in ukraine, but he can't abandon ukraine because you have to look at the voltage states and the members of nato, and the russian army can take them in a day and then you will say what would happen to kids and the russians invaded. so
11:11 am
a native doesn't want to have a problem. and hopefully both sides will, in fact, accept the loop status quo. that they will not be shooting. war will not be a military conflict because neither said wanted and it would be disasters for both sides to become involved in the military conflict. because at present we have the problem, the climate change, and the problems of cobra, 19 and so on. we don't want the war. we don't want military on the between russia and ukraine, which would in fact grow in ukraine. milton, small, well, when we draw in world war 3 mod anyway, george world war 3 with all the different factions involved, mach mccauley. i wish we had more time, i really, really do ortho and russia and less joining us live here. now if you to national martin, thank you very much. thank you. thank you. the world health organization is warning about the new on marque one,
11:12 am
barian saying it's spreading very quickly and hospitals could soon be overwhelmed. well, mcroy has been registered now in more than 70 countries, but despite the rapid spread, many studies from south africa, hong kong in australia suggest is less likely to cause any severe illness. but despite all of that, countries worldwide is still ramping up the vaccine campaigns of correspondent elliot for trunk. i spoke to the regional director for europe with a w h o. how much more do we know about our micron? at this point? we know much more and we have to tours and about oh michel, it's to, it's the latest variant. it's spreading much more faster, but i always tell we're not in the business of fighting one variant when the business of fighting all variance and stu, delta is dominant. what we need to do is to implement, well they call fife on the mic stabilizers number one, increase vaccination coverage. number 2, boost boost,
11:13 am
boost number city. double the number of people varying marks. indorse number for ventilate, particularly in classrooms. keep the schools open and fife, implement new treatment protocols. how valid are the concerns that vaccines might prove ineffective against on the chron where we know as of to date, that vaccines are still effective. for the 1st or the 2nd dose may be limitless, but it covers with a cert dosed well on the european union. specifically, we've seen a range of different approaches. why aren't we seeing a more uniformity from the block? in particular, do uniformed, it has been growing over time, but i take the point that it's still really aleck, off uniformity with a cold political here it is and it's confuses the people. that's why dublin was advocating to establish a bung european health senate council at the high level to half uniformed in policy,
11:14 am
but ultimately still health is a national competency. it's a decision by the country of speaking of sputnik v, a r t. we've heard from a number of experts that the issue has been politicized. is that true anyhow? house including vaccines. go beyond politics. we should never take into account the country of origin. i shared the optimism of the president of the russian federation that this deb rachel, emergency use listing for sputnik ruby there. soon. germany's government is facing a furious backlash against plan for mandatory cove. its shots and tough new restrictions of cities all across the country have been seeing mass unrest. most of it was a new unit, also an official and dressed and has received death threats in the wake of more locked downs on mandatory vaccinations. a praetor, oliver reports munich,
11:15 am
was the latest city in germany to see demonstrations by anti vax groups, as well as those that are opposed to the measures that have been put in place to try and stop the spread of coven 19 the place. there are 4000 people, turned up at the demonstration in bavaria. it was all relatively peaceful until a group of around $4.00 to $500.00 of them decided they were going to go to march around the city that resulted in some captain. mouse with the police said, bit of pushing and shoving and ultimately according to the place 28 arrests being made. they ranged from people refusing to wear masks to those that had assaulted police officers. what we have seen at these type of demonstrations though, is an increase in the, the speed at which it, in shoes and the amounts of people who are getting involved in violence. ah ah,
11:16 am
when we're talking about these demonstrations, they are groups that serve anti vaccine, as a said also opposed to those a covert measures. but a lot of them are lumped under the umbrella of a group called the lateral think is now they have be roundly marked a here in germany, in society as well as on t v, in satirical tv programs and, and elsewhere. but things have taken a much darker turn. in fact, on wednesday morning, dawn rates were carried out across the state of saxony, in the east of germany. in connection with a plot to assassinate the, the leader of the government of the states of saxony. that's michael coachman also to launch attacks against for the politicians in that state. now saxony has some of the lowest rates of vaccination in germany. it also has some of the highest rates of covert infection as well. while following those rates. 5 men and one woman were
11:17 am
taken into custody. what it's seen is a number of politicians turning on the messaging application. telegram with them saying that it was all about messaging application that this type of, of plot was able to be finessed and, and the message being spread. they are extremely dangerous because they're not only talking, chatting and inciting each other, but also taking action. very worthwhile pointing out the theme lateral thing because the anti vax is the deep anti cove. it measured people are a smaller percentage of the population than the those at large. what we have seen as a large number of people coming forward for vaccinations. here in germany, in fact, on wednesday, they broke records with 1500000 jobs being handed out across the whole of the country. now 1300000 of those were booster vaccines. what we have those the read the rest were i the 1st or 2nd doses all of our own vaccine. now what we have is
11:18 am
around 70 percent of the population fully vaccinated, but there is a group of around 20 percent of the population that are vehemently anti vaccine here in germany. and they just so absolutely no interest in guessing that vaccine whatsoever. in fact, that's why we've seen or laughed sholtes, the german chancellor talking about the possibilities of potentially in the future . seeing mandatory vaccination countries like austria on greece have already said that from next year they will be implementing mandatory vaccination. it's still at the discussion phase here. in germany though, you can read more about these are protesting demonstration, sporting all across europe. now, even for the past few months, read more about it at ot dot com. ah ah
11:19 am
ah mm. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy, even foundation, let it be an arms race is on offense. very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk
11:20 am
with florida 7, 20 pm here in the russian capital. our sister channel in germany, r t d e has been taken down by youtube. believe it or not, it comes on the very day. it lost its 1st broadcast in that country. the reason given for the bond is at r t d ease. previous youtube account was removed, and apparently the owner of any blocked channel is forbidden from starting a new one. well, r t t has the, the new channel has a new owner, despite being unavailable. now on you tube, you can still watch it at d dot auto dot com. in the meantime, to channels or chief transformation officer told us what happened on p o sent him has been terminated by v t. for what you just couldn't violation of the time. the fact that you've got to
11:21 am
complain that our vendor has documented some technical safety measures. this means according to that claim, if your channel is terminated, you may be unable to use and create any child. and quite all to y'all said that was the latest addition to somebody on youtube that includes dozens of channels. it was set out by the bouncing company about tea and then to be novice, in most cases, used by a team of editors. i of them have no relation to r, t d e channel that was terminated in september. i sent a tory technically because the channel that was deleted in september was owned by a different company all tv productions. it's also worth mentioning that at the time of termination on youtube channel, had some 600000 followers and the 540000000 views. so despite the huge you ban german city channel is now up and running. oxy correspondent danny
11:22 am
armstrong now looks at what other obstacles had had to overcome though just to get on at the journey. so launched a has been the usual track through pressure and passive aggression from the self appointed defenders of democracy. i. e. rival, gym, and media. it's bad enough to putin's voice sounds out across the internet. if it were not for one reliable german media outlet, dest spiegel kremlin owned outlets would dominate the german digital information space in both the number of articles published in social engagement received. there is reason to believe that most of the traffic on r t channels is real and not acquired through purchased fake profiles. the thinly veiled disdain from rival gym and media outlets have come in a form of gallant cries to stop the so called moscow mouthpiece. and kremlin back putin propaganda, of course, that has nothing to do with our t deutsche. his popularity on a string of social media,
11:23 am
where they consistently rank among the top most viewed channels as regards news and politics. ah but it wasn't just rival outlets that ran. so the, his theory over r t deutsch is rise through the media rankings. politicians got personal and launched. attacks on our t employees, framing them as perpetrators of this information, and d, stabilizing democracy. those who work for asi have said good bye to critical and independent journalism and whether they want it or not, all the employees are part of the d stabilization of democracy. this is not about
11:24 am
the approval of a profane entertainment channel, but about e. u wide access for putin propaganda and targeted disinformation under the guise of alternative journalism. and what goes up must come down our tea toich. his ascent was yanked back down to earth when youtube banned the channel from its platform with it wiping out 600000 subscribers. now despite rumors that the ban was pearl impact, former chancellor angle, a miracle denied that germany had influence you chief's decision. as for r t, germany did not put any pressure on brussels or the decisions it made in germany. neither the federal government nor the state governments engaging meadows like that . so despite all the people's best efforts, r t deutsch is primed and ready for action. launching on air and launching a fresh assault on those old ratings and views, rankings. mainstream media beware. well, with all the resistance at r t t has face, including today's youtube termination, we decided to take
11:25 am
a very brief tongue in cheek look at why the authorities there are just so against it. i mean, you must, it is so delicate and as you want to talk to, we stand together. we'll continue to stand together against russia. 80 in germany. repeat some of the areas that we doubtless may say no to 70. the shockey dawson about their village influence other nations, france b, u. k. and even latin america and other countries in future than they knew where to high from cycle alone with members of your household, please, please, please, please. we're going to continue to fight. we'll go home, don't you just need to rush, you must not be allowed in germany. i don't want y'all to come and leave it so
11:26 am
short. so dean altino, haitian, the father of the yes, actually in the 80, the in office, mrs. gunston 2 sons and a reversible division. that's the point american society is reaching well. that is, according to a new academic study. and found that polarization of the country is close to tipping point. if polarization is to extreme, people become divided even on the shock is she? if we reach that point, we cannot unites even in the face of war. climate change pandemic, or of the challenges to the survival of our society. earlier in the program of the former pennsylvania state, senator bruce marquis joined me here in the studio to share his perspective on the growing rift and us politics. the nbc accomodate of nbc was saying, he said there was 30000000 people right. not ready to take up arms to for donald trump. back in the office. that's somewhere between 20 and 30000000 people. that's
11:27 am
a mass movement in america, in favor of political violence, which is a new thing. does that sound accurate to you? well, i don't think that you're gonna see anybody taking up arms in the literal sense of, you know, having, you know, weapons. but i think that maybe there's a 120000000 or 130000000 or maybe more people who be willing to vote for donald trump. we had the tobacco, an afghan, a stan, which was poorly handled in and maybe united states look weak on the international platform where they didn't get the americans out before the troops, laughter. that's number one. and number 2, with all of the spending that were happening because of these, you know, bills that the democrats just wanna throw money at. we for the 1st time, i mean in a long time, we have inflation so that, sorry, this is, this is not just the media fear mongering about inflation in america. because we've been reporting that it's nearly at a full decade high inflation in the united states. it's just about everything across the board now is more expensive than it was even just a year ago. is that,
11:28 am
is that true? was absolutely it's, it's absolutely true. i'm just, i grew up in the 70 so i can remember when we had inflation, then we really haven't had inflation since i'd say that's the late 19 eighties has been fairly stable. absolutely. you go to you. listen, you can't fully american public. we have the whole problem, you know, with the transport and getting goods, goods into the country. i wanted to ask you just briefly, going back to biden's approval ratings and the inflation crisis cove. it afghanistan, the list goes on, and yet he says, he says the following about mid times have a quick listen to this. if you would, in 2021 as a unified democratic party for unified that ever. now we look at 2020. do i want to tell my republican friends get ready bell you're going in for a problem. what he seems certainly out made an optimistic the how do you think is ratings right now will affect the midterms. i think they've already infected the elections, the united states. we had a republican when governor and virginia completely unexpected. ah,
11:29 am
that was in part because of the lack of popularity of president biden. it's typical that the party that's out of power does well in the mid years, but with biden. and his lack of popularity is really even his inability to campaign could didn't even campaign for himself when he was running for president. i don't think that we're going to see him going around the country and supporting very many democrat candidates. and republicans, i think you're gonna feel very good slate of candidates. it was a big chat that i had with bruce marx went on for at least 10 minutes. you can watch it in full right now. at ortiz youtube channel. thanks for joining us here on this to this program for this thursday evening life from moscow unit. o'neill is here at the desk. in half an hour's time. i do hope you can join hymns with blue right now. there are 2000000000 people who are overweight or
11:30 am
obese. it's profitable to sell food that he's fuzzy and sugary and salty and addicted is not at the individual level. it's not individual willpower. and if we go on believing that never change is obesity epidemic. that industry has been influencing very deeply. the medical and scientific establishment. mm. so what's driving the obesity epidemic? it's corporate mm. with but i'm not know what's on the, but it's got the law.
