the forces as resulted in a bifurcation and the economy where the most corrupt are rewarded for committing crimes. morgan being a prime example. and if you have morals or ethics, you're penalize. if you're not out there still ceiling and looting, then you're going to be homeless. and that's american, which is that the this ours health headlines here on our teeth. russia publishes a list of proposals to nato for maintaining security, for the countries deputy foreign minister saying the bold is not when the alliance is caught when it comes to the escalation. and the program we take into disturbing revelations of the mattress. so a reno suicide bomber had links to a former nato soldier tongue paris. as an inquiry, his submission is from the home office and counter terrorism. police
7:01 am
drought and simon rapids canister is teetering on the brink of a beacon on the collapse with agency saying international sanctions are only punishing the innocent also in the program for you here on r t, it's not just code that the wiring to humanity, russia, the well to wake up to the dormant viral threats in the arctic which could be exposed at the pub, frost is mel. ah, it is friday afternoon here at moscow and a pretty worldwide program for you. welcome to research. so moscow has published a list of proposals on how to ensure de escalation between russia and nato, with russia, as deputy foreign minister. now saying the ball is now and the alliance is court. we did it as a me it, sir? yeah, we saw yesterday's text from nato. there is nothing new there. we've been making
7:02 am
proposals, but in return only gets ultimatums. we were told it's up to us. now the choice is nato's. while i talk about the contents here without is that senior correspondent moran gasdio. good afternoon to you. so moran, what's in these proposals? well that there are, as you mentioned, 2 different proposals. one is for the united states, which is slightly more detailed, but largely the same. there's also one to nato as a whole, and the gist of it is that we all need to pull back from the brink to de escalate a stop threatening each other. it's right there in article one that there needs to be a healthy respect for each others. need for security and in that vein, it proposes a matter of a whole range of practical steps. in order to achieve that the parties should not use the territories of other states with
7:03 am
a view to preparing or carrying out an armed attack against the other party. it is no secret, of course, not to you, not to of you as that the things have reached the i wouldn't say, a chasm, a chasm. we're on the brink, where in the past we had talk of sanctions and you, you know, accusations of ill behavior. now we're hearing things about an escalation towards war. repeat the cuban missile crisis. we're seeing both countries develop more and more. both sides are russian, natal develop more and more sophisticated weapons trying to one up each other. and all of this there is an understanding in the holds of power everywhere that order. this isn't going to end. well, there is no clear conclusion in which anyone, anyone benefits. and so russia proposes i again, a range of steps including issues that are very sensitive to rush and that is at the station in increasing station of intermediate and short range ballistic
7:04 am
missiles near russia with a flight time from the east, the peripheries of nato. to moscow. that is measured in minutes, which isn't enough time to even react. the parties shall not deploy land based, intermediate, and short range missiles in areas allowing them to reach the territory of the other parties. at this point, i mean, russia is referred to as an adversary in the, in the military doctrines of the united states, some other nato countries. and these proposal seeks to eliminate that. we need to start afresh. we need to change what we call each other, stop again, threatening each other either politically, economically, militarily, in some cases, which have which of course, quite the shock incidents where seen constantly in the black sea, for example, with increasing native military presence there. and what russia wants is
7:05 am
a return to the security situation of 1997, which is just just off that i to 97. nato expire expanded towards the east. and now we're seeing more and more american troops, nato equipment being stationed near russia's boddeson. russia wants that to stop in return, it is offering to take steps itself. but the gist of it is that they want commitment . security guarantees that nato has grown enough. nato states commit themselves to refrain from any further enlargement of nato, including the accession of ukraine, as well as other states during a press conference. all of this was unveiled by the way, by the russian foreign ministry during the press conference, journalists, including many from, from western media outlets were there. and what of things they said it is, aren't you asking for too much?
7:06 am
i mean, this is, this is essentially a wishlist of everything that marcia want. and here russia says, look, this is, this is a draft. this is our proposals. things that we're prepared to work with, work around that top of my somewhere, but perhaps compromise elsewhere. but the error of russia must do this. russia must do that. a rush of being detained, to ease ease, over which he was faithful to the position at the nebulous motor. this is not an attempt to revise the post cold war order. it's a response to western expansion which has been conducted in a hostile manner apiece. morton. unfortunately, though, there isn't much cause for optimism so far. russia foreman, as she says its proposals have been rejected who are being rejected. i am by nato states by the 2 countries, the european union. and here, the problem is that both sides of voiced, this opinion, that things must change, that we want better relations. but every practical step taken to improve those
7:07 am
relations to take steps a deescalate out there, met with. unfortunately, the russian se rejection our senior correspondent. what august here. thank you. the magister arena bomber may have been radicalized by 8 nato. a soldier, i should say, a former nato soldier, turned into a terrorist that was revealed during an inquiry into this atrocity on thursday, our senior figures from the u. k is counter terrorism, police and home office gave their closing submissions. now, just a quick reminder of exactly what happened back in 2017, a salman, a bed eat detonated explosives and a stadium hosting and arianna grand concert, and 22 people were killed. hundreds injured across on an even don off. now look to the latest fax to come from. he murdered 22 people in one suicide blast. now a public inquiry is trying to establish what turned
7:08 am
a hard core party go up into a suicide bomber, and how it could have been prevented. the probe was yet to deliver concrete answers, but over the past couple of years it has yielded plenty of disturbing revelations. these pictures unearthed by the inquiry leave little to the imagination the bomb. his whole family himself included, have been gun toting maniacs, thoroughly radicalized according to the findings. this is his father and the m. i. 5, they admitted they knew about the trigger. happy father who apparently was turning his sons into extremists and my 5 also knew about the bombers contact with not one or 2, but 6 people who were just short of being placed on the terror watch list. and my 5 were also reportedly warned by the f b i that cell mana betty was planning an attack in the u. k. which in fact he was
7:09 am
none of that was apparently good enough to ban him from entry in 2015 and my 5 received information that summoner bady was in contact with the subjects of interest as so i see a so i see was a long standing a so i, because of his previous, the ation with an extremist group in libya, from mid 2015 onwards. am i 5 received information or summit a baby on several occasions which included conflicting information about his a spousal of pro eisley views. ah, this is abdullah rove abdullah a convicted terrorist, suspected of radical ising the manchester terrorist. he was friends with the bomber with the bomb his father. more than that they were brothers in arms within one of libby as largest militant groups. the february 17th march his brigade, that's where they learned how to shoot, kill and bomb. not without the help of natal instructors, it was a group that had taken up arms to fight against gadhafi. yes, indeed,
7:10 am
we had 2 or forced us. as we were backed up by the whole world and we were fighting and nature was frightened actually with us were long sighted us as the british government. also actually i was chained by and actually natal. it was just normal, basic training in weapons. basic training yet out to ain't you and reload. militant groups that lay to birth terrorists have been ones favored by western officials. the inquiry has shown, when of dallas commander was done with fighting in libya, he formed an anti government militia in syria on irish government, money. and did he subsequently lead the group from libya to syria? it? yes, i saw mana he did, and here before that he was in island, is it,
7:11 am
it, he was a live is a live in irish, i live and, and there he was aided by the irish government with money. and i believe the british government also knew of others well to go and help syrians, if against the fight against asset during the libyan conflict in 2011, the british government was in communication with a wide range of libyans involved in the conflicts against the cathy regime forces it is likely that this included former members of the libyan islamic fighting group and the 17th of february, march this brigade as part of our broad engagement. during this time, the you case helped to rebel groups of various degrees of extremism did not end their britons elite troops were caught on camera in libya, despite official assurances at the time that there were no boots on the ground, them, there was no other choice, but to admit the reality if the malicious and or herb bellinger had not been there
7:12 am
playing a key role, i am not so certain that eric bala would have resulted in good of his downfall in the way that we had a few people imbedded with them. not france, so to speak, but beckoned carriers. rebel groups firepower grew. nato was dropping bombs by the 1000 and qaddafi while eventually fell. and with him went down libya's security and rule of law. as war, this myriad of militias turned against each other vying for power. the country turned into a free for all, so the u. k. began to evacuate. it's citizens, including militants. well guess who boarded the royal navies. h. m. s. enterprise, back in 20. 14 in tripoli. none other than the future. manchester, boehmer, solomon abedi. so we have asked our nato, an u. k. officials to comment on the admissions. we'll let you know what response we get. well, plenty morsel to come here on the program and archie international. plenty of
7:13 am
stories on line for you as well, but will it not in today's bulletin, for example, believe it or not, how the u. s. on ukraine voted against a un resolution condemning naziism? yeah, that's just a few clicks away right now. auto dot com. right about 1213 minutes past the hour here at moscow. apparently 8 groups, a warning that afghanistan, she monetary and crisis is about to be made even worse by that of a financial crash. a drought and found that have been compounded by currency to valuation many that people basically can afford the most simple of needs. the country's economic woes have been made worse by washington cutting aid and freezing assets. of course, all of this in the wake of the taliban takeover, but at this point in time in afghanistan, the people there a desperate mom lived in the stomach bug. our life has become so tough nowadays because of increase in feminine poverty. the prices of flower and oil have gone up
7:14 am
. there is no income, no work. people are under pressure. huh. got 4. people have to sell their belongings to survive, to eat, and he, their homes. some immigrants to living in pox. they faced many problems and live in a pitiful way muscular. they came on in life that they have blocked all money. what he did twyla daily living close and to run our businesses. we see it. a dollar rates goes up and down, up and down to think about. i work in a grocery store, we can't say who is to blame if we do, they'll kill us during the night. and if we don't, will die from poverty during the day. he is and again, i am currently unemployed. i do not have a shop or business. life is hard for everyone in afghanistan. there is no income. there is no work. there is no tray. the people are disturbed in general, all of them are to blame in i would like, or the foreign minister has been pleading with washington to release some of the $10000000000.00 and assets that is holding onto ultimately urging mostly on compassion the u. n. a warrant in october that without the financial aid or to
7:15 am
monitor in relief, i've kinda started on accountant down to to, to catastrophe. i should say that we did speak with a red cross spokesperson, anita dullard. who told us more about the crises gripping the country in afghanistan at the moment. around half the population using native, some kind of humanitarian system. and what that looks like on the ground for people is that they don't have access to enough food to feed their families so that having to skip meals in some cases in other cases with an increase in global occasionally nutrition people are resorting to spending any savings that they may have had, it can be, they had any and selling, in fact, assets in order to raise enough money to continue to have the basics that they need
7:16 am
to the humanitarian agencies need to really step in to these crises. and what we would certainly make a call to the national community to continue to invest in this response. at this really critical juncture, the country is crypt icon sees many, many really what we see is that the people who the things are intended to punish or it is punishing, rather people who are not the people who are being sanctioned. so the effect really is flowing into communities. results is a drawing up. so we would really reminding sexual community to think about the humanitarian needs and the humanity of african, at the forefront of the decision making and, and their investment. still
7:17 am
a lot of stories are still the come here in there friday program, roughly halfway through it right now. here with you to national well, usually friend lead us media outlets and i'll talk to said joe biden, property should not run for president. again, you're probably not surprised hearing that listed on a little not story. lots to come here. we're not to international. we are back in about 60 seconds. ah . join me every 1st day on the alex summon show. when i was speaking to guests in the world, the politic sport business i'm show business. i'll see you then. me. oh, is your media a reflection of reality?
7:18 am
in the world transformed? what will make you feel safer? high selection community. are you going the right way or are you being that somewhere? which direction? what is true? walk this way. in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. oh thanks for joining us here for the program on our t now with a cove it on the rise again in america and nearing 850000 daily infections, a president biden has given a grim warning to americans who have not been vaccinated for on vaccinated we are
7:19 am
looking at a winter of severe illness and death vaccinated for themselves. their families and the hospital will soon overwhelm. so the us has apparently passed on the grid milestone $800000.00 cove it deaths. now it comes at a time of soaring inflation and living cost, so all of which i think a pretty negative impact on the popularity of the man at the helm dantes nikki aaron now explains a tragic milestone bind and cold it. and he's right. the number of cov, a death in the u. s. is now about equal to the population of atlanta and louis combined. the toll stands and more than $800000.00, a grim figure, which has doubled in a single year. it's a heavy burden for any president to carry in his 1st year in office, but it seems that president biden took some convincing on the gravity of the situation.
7:20 am
was was 200000 where preventable death live looks when vaccines wo readily available. and the old habits of blaming donald trump is no longer going to work. just over 4 weeks ago, america had no real plan of action that most of the country, my predecessors, my mother would say, god love them failed order, and vaccines fell to mobilize the effort to administer the shots, fail to set up vaccine centers that changed the mobile we took offers as by to now use it, his influence to encourage people to get vaccinated. one can help it. wonder whether trust in the presidents woods has been undermined, vaccinated 57 to me, 570 to me. i want to read, i'm not sure i got the right number. the total number of boosters is what i have
7:21 am
a 77000000 boosters. we have a roughly 350000000 people that actually united stage. and as binding comes to the end of what was expected to be a common gear off the trend post so that almost at 70 percent of americans have reservations, where the bind and is elidah. they can believe in no doubt not helps by his multiple fo par, like cracking jokes about kentucky after the state was ravaged by killer tornadoes . by kid say, the best thing ever came out of kentucky was my sister in law. the president's performance this year has also been enough to turn some of the mainstream media against him just months ago. the future look to bryant as for cost as spoke optimistically about how life with bind in at the helm would play out. but the tune has changed with some media outlets now, urging bitin against another run. combined president joe biden's age. he'll be
7:22 am
a to, to shortly after the 2024 election and his ongoing political struggles. he's mired in the low fourties and job approval and you get this a series of stories examining with abide and runs again, and if not, what might take his place. so what's the president to do? he should announce much sooner than later that he would not run for a 2nd term. the argument against this is that he would instantly turn him into a lame duck presidents. and that's undoubtedly true. bought news flush right now, he's worse than a lame duck. the white house press secretary, however, se if the president has every intention of keeping his job, whether the country will concur, is another massa. while american society being split along party lines could be, quote, irreversible, and even dangerous. that's the finding of a new academic study, which concludes that the division in america is close to
7:23 am
a tipping point. it claims that polarization has gone so far that americans will find it difficult if not impossible, to unite even when faced with a serious threat such as war or political commentator. and archie contributed. lauren chen now gives her take on how things got to this point. political division in america is at an all time high right now, and it is no secret that by and large the corporate press are not fans of conservatives. after all, they have been calling them nazis and white supremacists for going on 5 years now. and perhaps it is because the rhetoric against republicans was already so strong that now leading up to the 2020 to mid term elections. and yes, even 2024 general elections. it seems like the new way to demonize anyone who would dare to support donald trump. is not just by calling them ideological extremist as we've been seeing, but to actually go so far as to imply that they are physically a literally dangerous and an actual threat to democracy. and if you think that's just hyperbole, check out this op ed from the washington post in his piece. our constitutional
7:24 am
crisis is already here. writer robert kagan lamented that quote, the united states is heading into its greatest political and constitutional crisis since the civil war with a reasonable chance over the next 3 to 4 years of incidence of mass violence, a breakdown of federal authority and the division of the country. into warring a red and blue enclave, and to be clear, a far from believing that potential political violence could be a both sides situations where democrats and republicans alike end up taking arms for their respective causes. commentators like kagan and emerson. b c's. john heilman, make it clear that in their opinion, the threat of violence comes solely from the right, at least 8 percent, and maybe as many as 12 percent of the american people now say the job i was illegitimate and that violence was appropriate tool to remove and human restore donald trump considering that throughout 2020 a large scale, political violence was almost exclusively left winger rena, with many american cities being burned or looted under the guise of b, l. m,
7:25 am
and t for activism. here in the corporate press. now trying to paint conservatives as the real threat of domestic terrorism in the country might seem disingenuous. and so, with all this discussion of political division and even violence should come as no surprise that of secession has even come back to the main stream. in fact, as a bloomberg opinion piece recently noted from tax it to the new california republic poles in the us do show strong support for splitting the nation among blue and red lines. and although the concept of balcony zation or succession is still regarded as an extreme suggestion by many in the media, if from supporters and republicans really are as violent and bigoted as they would have us believe us, shouldn't they be jumping at the chance to separate themselves from them or perhaps are the allegations against conservatives. merely smears meant to keep them out of political power. all while allowing democrats to enact legislative control over them with the world. still preoccupied with covered scientists or warning
7:26 am
