applied image, 17 and eastern ukraine, back in 2014, prosecutors are demanding life sentences for the suspects, including 3 russian nationals and a dispute rages within the u. s. the democratic party, after one of its own senators effectively torpedoes, jo biden's lavish infrastructure bill in the senate. we look at why it's feeling a crisis of confidence among democrats. ah, about kathy wanted to read from our studios in monica. this is our to international . i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us. now we started this early thursday morning, the russian foreign minister circuit lab rob has given an r t exclusive interview in which he touched upon a range of key world issues. nicholas ah,
8:02 pm
one of the main points mr. lab rob discussed was the removal of our german language channel, our t d. e from europe's main satellite network provider. it happened to just moments before the interview. now the move came at the request of germany's media regulator . mr. lab rav slammed the action against the channel, which had only begun broadcasting last week, and warned that it was unacceptable behavior on the part of berlin, and that there will be consequences, will not schedule them just the was nicole. we have been tempted to respond similarly, but until recent times we were convinced that we do not want to follow the same path and tried to put pressure on media to follow suit with a western partners. but you know the same thing with russian security. we cannot tolerate it any longer, and we believe if this unacceptable situation will go on, we will have to respond to it. in an interview with rushes and tv network kremlin spokesperson dmitri pest golf said berlin's behavior was part of a disturbing pattern. bocurel cathedral of the cities to muslim foot
8:03 pm
a massive vive, wrote the booking of the whole network in europe contradicts european spirit. and oh, nomes and principles of the organization for security and cooperation in europe. but unfortunately, neither you nor the u. s. cares about such things the day, and they do what they want. we have a cowboy reality now. and in such circumstances, russia should act confidently neatly and persistently, not to shoot ourselves in the leg so to say, but to let our opponents know that we totally disagree with such actions and will not leave them without consequences. so for a little bit of context, r t d e has faced a barrage of resistance and allegations since it launched last thursday. it is accused of not having the necessary documentation to broadcast in germany, but our t management says its license was obtained in accordance with all europe and laws and regulations. further, the channel was also taken off youtube. the very day it was launched. technically there's no connection between that and the german
8:04 pm
t v broadcast dispute. even during the launch, an official for a german media watchdog suggested that they would take action against the channel. this is our statement and response to the latest news. today the german regulator force european satellite service util sat 9 to remove the broadcast of our new moscow based german language channel r t d e from its platform. it is inappropriate for the german regulator, m a b b to overreach, and ignore the european convention on trans frontier television under which are the subject thereby forcing util, sat to remove our tv from the carrier solely due to the unsubstantiated and factually flawed claims of the german regulator, we believe this amounts to illegal pressure and our confident this action be redressed by the courts. we will be seeking all possible remedies against the german regulator and our audience can continue to access our content across multiple platforms and online. but the reason it's happening is because nobody wants competition,
8:05 pm
and we obviously are getting more and more popular. and the online service that we had in germany was phenomenal, is successful, i should say. and naturally, no one likes competition. and that's fair. i mean, we all want to compete, well, trying to compete, trying to win our orders. the problem is that we want to do it perfectly legally. and we are absolutely sure. and we consulted with our international lawyers that everything we have don was exactly according to the existing laws and regulations. each new channel is getting more and more resistance, which is almost like getting a metal. because that means we are getting more and more successful. they see you see us as more and more of a competition, but of course they claim something which is totally ridiculous that this is not being produced here in moscow. but you know, that been user room is right across across the corridor. you know, the newsroom is here and this to those here. and the broadcasting facilities in
8:06 pm
hair and german regulator is trying to persuade us, this is all fictitious. we are available to him. many other options don't want to name them all, but there are, there was a number of options for people who want to know the alternative use. and sometimes what we believe is a more accurate version of many events and then what they get from german mays, tramecia, we will fight legally. and i'm quite sure that we will get the possibility to bring our version of events, which is total illegitimate, to which we are totally entitled to our viewers in germany, as well as all other countries as well as tracking. the plan that we've used was not a plan a. unfortunately, we're not able to use the plan a that we use the plan be that we didn't to work to. and we are going to dispute that in a court of law with another country. so now we're going to plan
8:07 pm
d and plan e have many of them, but one thing is certain people who want to know the different side ends and want to know the events of the truth that is not being brought by some mainstream. german media have the possibility to do that to do that and we'll try to help them as much as we can. well, actually, nickel of our chief chief executive speaking earlier now apart from our cheese german channel being cut off from the european satellite network. much attention was also devoted to the escalation of tensions between russia and nato. mister driver says moscow has lost its trust in the west, thus that he will yet on a monday will. they've lied to us on a regular basis from oral pledges even political obligations enshrined in the russia, nato political act. so this time, as president putin said, we want to have legally binding guarantees. at the same time, we understand that the west can violate such guarantees as well. if it wants to shoot guns, it was a very in depth interview. i'm here in the very studio where
8:08 pm
a to play, so beats and a slot reduce format. mr. lover of covered a real her spectrum of salient in the national topics of the day, from the presence of foreign troops. u. s. troops in syria to the ongoing nuclear negotiations in iran at the main focal point. now, as we said, was that escalation, the ongoing crisis on russia, ukraine border, and that's been very much a focal point of much west to media. those allegations of thousands of russian troops massing on the ukraine border allegations leveled at moscow that this is in preparation for some sort of intervention or conflict. miss lover was very clear to say that this is not something that moscow that seeks or wants so that russia moscow wants these issues to be resolved through daughter gone through the strengthening or wedns national institutions, such as the un, another organizations. and he really warned against the danger, although return or ra, returning towards a might is right. a balance of power in the world are insisting that dialogue is
8:09 pm
key and not just dollars, but also putting any sort of agreements, any sort of dialogues in writing, in some sort of legal framework. and that was something with the level of focused on very much. and when we touched upon the expansion of nato eastwood's, mr. lover of mentioned, know that to russia, moscow does see the presence of nato military data, military. the expansion went to eastwards as a threat to its security, and the west has to understand that that is the topic of concern for russia and a compromise has to be reached if dear relation is to happen. but he was at the silly globes loves to prove the heads of states, and governments have clearly states that no participants of the o s. c, e should insure the security by damaging security of others. so when still some burg may this high brow and arrogant statement that no one can breach the principle, the washington treaty in accordance with which doors are open for any candidate wishing to accede to nato,
8:10 pm
we can say that we are not party to this organization. we have not signed this treaty, but we have signed a broader pan regional euro atlantic documents that includes the principle of indivisible security. and if you install somebody believe the native members can ignore this principle that is enshrined in their documents that are the highest level than perhaps it is indeed time for him to get a different job. because he does not perform his functions very well. he called for the formalization within the legal framework to prevent mat expansion eastwards and that a recent discussions had been actually quite positive that washington had listened to moscow as concerns. and at least a dialogue was happening. so at least that something positive to take away from these tensions which have been rising over the last see weeks prosecutors in the netherlands have ended their arguments in the case of malaysian airlines flight mh 17 down to over eastern ukraine in 2014 killing all 298 on board. they are demanding life sentences for the for suspects including 3 russian nationals,
8:11 pm
rushes foreign minister has once again voiced moscow's concerns about bias in the investigation. just muslim, worthless idioms a blossom. we're closely following the case because it's about russian citizens who the defendants at this stage of the trial were surely conceive you attempt to create an impression that it's a problem of the state rather than a criminal case. that is completely unacceptable. it should be considered a criminal process, was 7 and a half years on after a trial that has seeped with politics for its duration of prosecutors have arrived at their version of events. they have now put forward charges against the full suspects that they believe are responsible. 3 of them, russian citizens, one of them are ukranian citizen. only one of them was represented in court by the way, by, by lawyers. but this is, this is a trial that had an agenda from the onset, and this is something that multiple states have said including malaysia,
8:12 pm
which is for years has said that, that they were excluded from the trial because they weren't on board with the agenda. they said this early on the, there was a very, very clear, very clear angle to the investigation to the trial. and that was to, to blame, rush to shove all responsibility on russia. and now they were arrived at the conclusion that these 4 suspects were responsible for, shooting down and made 17, with a book, a missile that was supplied from abroad. they, for it, we denied to the suspects, are convicted each individual, even a joint shooting down of an aircraft which caused the death and murder of o $298.00 people on board to life in prison. even if the suspects did not intend the consequences of their actions, those consequences still count for their sentencing. how they arrived at this conclusion is a story in the end of itself. because there has been a lot of outrage about some of the evidence that they have taken taken on board.
8:13 pm
look, they've, they included from the onset ukraine, was included in the, in investigation invited all to the joint investigative team despite the fact that ukraine itself was at, at the time a suspect. and a large part of the case is built on testimony from ukraine, which includes audio recordings provided by ukraine, secret services, audio recordings of the alleged suspects. apparently talking about the jet again from the onset they was suspected of being manipulated. the recordings, multiple forensic experts came out to say the same thing that they were doctor, they were edited and words were put in place and moved, moved around. but again, ukraine's evidence was taken on board while a slew of evidence for provided from her from other sources wasn't again, the case was built much her testimony from social media post. the witnesses were
8:14 pm
but kept secret, their identities anonymous. there was also the fact that for years now, the quote that j i t joint investigative team have vos, the united states to provide an absolutely crucial, the incident took place to make sure that there was that there was this book miss av launcher on site. the united states for years now has refused multiple times to provide those satellite shots of full for the investigation. it was also an incident in which dutch m. p. 's themselves will f, flabbergasted. after reading a report that says ukraine couldn't have known, there was a threat to civilian aircraft in the area, despite the fact that just days earlier, a ukrainian military plane was shot down the last of about a dozen in the area at i as hides that were that were dangerous for civilian ag crop. so passage a jet. and these combined with all the evidence that was rejected by the,
8:15 pm
by the prosecutors has led many to believe that indeed there was bias a groom legally sh through. there are large number of discrepancies, impartial, judicial process, rule violations, examination of witness breaches. witness is a classified including the one who could bring facts, ignored by the investigation to light. the fact that the defense attorneys request has been rejected without any explanation says a lot. they also ignored the amazon takes parents, which proves that investigation statement on the missile tub used is unfounded. russian ministry of defense provided the documents confirming that the missile was produced in 1986 given to one of the ukrainian military units and stayed there until it was used. all this information was ignored. and again, despite over control the c o over the missing details about the, the me sal itself, where the launcher was, who controlled the launcher at the time whether it was on the ukrainian side,
8:16 pm
on the, on the rebels side. all of those questions remain well classified. the answers to those questions you've made remain classified for now. we don't know a lot about the decision making process in the prosecution. nevertheless, the defense is due to speak in march and we are waiting for a verdict towards the end of next year. still to come into program, fall out within the u. s. a democratic party after one of its own senators torpedoes, jo biden's, massive instruct, infrastructure bill, and story much more abstract. this is our international with oh, when i want something wrong, when i just don't hold any world to seek out
8:17 pm
this thing because the advocate and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. and so it begins to weeks of our christmas and new year's the specials, in which we look back in the year that was and parents in the future with some of our roster of amazing guests, all heterodox thinkers, that wouldn't be caught dead on raytheon finance. corporate media, 1st up, james howard concert. joined me every thursday on the alex salmon show. but i'll be speaking to guess of the world politics sport, business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. oh,
8:18 pm
we'll come back. this is our to international. now in fighting has broken out within the u. s. democratic party, after one of its own senators tipped the balance of the senate by refusing to vote in favor of jo biden's near to trillion dollar bill back better, bill joe mentioned immediately drew fury from the white house. his move is seen as a fatal blow to the president's flagship plan, although apparently not by vitamin himself. do you believe i didn't mention word to you and how did you feel a resolution? not some people think maybe i'm not are industries hold crunch fork. i want to get things done. i still think there's a possibility. can you go back better, john? although biden seemed unfazed, it did pave the way for further rift in american politics with the democratic party now facing
8:19 pm
a crisis of confidence. as archie's soft taylor comments by didn't promise to build back better than long time friend, joe munch and went to the fox news and blew up the president's campaign promises. and i cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. i just can't. i've tried everything humanly possible. i can't get there. you're done. this is, this is a no. this is a no. and with it it seems his whole party. we all knew that send or mention couldn't be trusted. you know, the, the excuses that he just made, i think, are complete and let this america explain to the people of west virginia why he doesn't have the guts to say the powerful special or what senator mentioned did. yesterday represents such an egregious breach of the trust of the president. and it's also, you know, this is exactly why it's an outcome that we had warned about. we have been saying
8:20 pm
this 4 weeks that this would happen and we took the hit, our leadership needs to step up. now politics and finger pointing, go hand in hand, nothing new, right? well, not quite because wanted tradition for the reds and the blues to spit to each other across the aisle head. if the democrats spitting, i didn't, chapa, i didn't even take that much. just one man, one veto. and it all came down. what made mansions, treachery, aldermore, unforgivable, was that he was biden's body. a friendly face will say that from the president's viewpoint and i saw him this morning. he's worked with senator mansion over the course of decades. they share fundamental values. they're long time friends that has not changed. that's how alienating biden's policy is apparently become long time friends, decades of shad find use. and mansion still broke rank even though p the loyalist, even though build back better was biden's baby. and even though he knows that
8:21 pm
without the bell, the mid tubs may be a blood off. if we could get the build back better plan past, democrats will have a strong possibility of lease, keeping the senate. it's tough, it's a tough reality. in today's america, where it's party above all mansions, vito spells trouble for biden, and it really couldn't have come, i was time. yes. canister withdrawal on the kron tearing through the us. hi, petra price says a supply chain still in crisis record inflation on a historically low popularity rating of just 141 percent. at a time like this, you need your people move and that's why you need a rallying cry. what does bite and have a party and boiled and fighting has signature legislation in the dot, and now defecting democrats with rumors that is just the tip of the iceberg member, we had an individual reregister from democrat republican and i think there are a few other democrats out there that are thinking about it, why not?
8:22 pm
because they've changed, but the party has changed with what appears to be a crisis of confidence in this change party. the last thing that democrats can afford is a crisis of confidence in the president himself, but looks like that's exactly what they've got. so the real president, it is country joe mentioned that joe biden matter wife for the charlemagne. i really s job. i can't, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, it's joe biden, which quite frankly, probably came a news to biden himself how kinda side of course president harris is a proud howard. okay, but kidding aside, the democrats got handed the keys to success. they took over from the country's most divisive president, they took control of the house and senate, and yet here, just 11 months on their in disarray with the president probably looking on and thinking that maybe instead of building back better, it might be worth building back a party that seems to have lost its way. as you know or is split. anna
8:23 pm
is growing stream like dale is growing, amongst both part is he in america is the breakup within a democrat pod and in b. o. leadership law president by the house hasn't made it in a battle. they are running a freight. they're not elections coming up to mit. turning 2022 and doubtful. they may lose that. and it's a one way thing. it shows a lot of hypocrites within the democratic party. i think the democrats know they are in for a fighter fight of their lives. they have all been so rather grab a cane co radical debt. they have moved far away from the main stream of america. what american people want, and they know it's going to be a fight for their life. they only all white house and i they own the congress and defend it. and they have been unable to get to be back battle ah, program to govern and get it class because it actually bankruptcy for america does
8:24 pm
what it stands for. former seal and employee john griffin, a long time producer for disgraced c. n star. chris cuomo has pleaded not guilty to child sex trafficking charges court documents reported by fox news allegedly say that griffin tried to pay off witnesses, including that he offered a woman $30000.00 in january 2020, and also sent 4000 to a family member of a 9 year old he is accused of assaulting. griffin was indicted this month on allegations of attempting to lord minors for sexual activities. and course girls as young as 7. to go to his home for sexual subservient training, he will face a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted cnn says. busy the charges against john griffin are deeply disturbing. this is by far not the 1st sex scandal at cnn in recent memory. this month the network fired chris cuomo for alleged misconduct while he reportedly helped his brother,
8:25 pm
andrew then new york's governor to fight off a sexual harassment case. and in recent weeks cnn host don lehman was accused of sexually assaulting a bar tender and last year, c n. n. legal analyst jeffrey toobin was allegedly caught masturbating on a work related video call. archie contributor lauren chen thinks that such scandals could ruin seen and ratings. the charges that john griffin is facing, they are not capricious. they are not merely based on a. he said, she said, situation. there are evidence of payments at text messages that duly people to believe authority, specifically that he has been at paying underage girls of for sexual favors, as well as trying to involve their mothers to varying degrees. he is engaged in grooming, and some would argue as well sex trafficking, many mainstream media outlets not just seen and themselves have i think, been a little bit hesitant to talk about this issue. even though we can only imagine what the reaction would have been if this had been someone, for example,
8:26 pm
on the fox news team or the trump team that had been discovered doing the exact same things overall as cnn's credibility has been shipped away, specially over the trumpet ministrations years, a lot of people just no longer believe that they are a fair and unbiased source of news. and it's just not a good look for a network that is already struggling to keep up a positive public appearance. and sadly, the only time cnn has been, i think, really disgust widely lately has not been for their amazing journalism or content. it has been because of these, these negative new stories involving their personnel. if the feds are alleging that not only did john griffin engage in these terrible behaviors, but he also then tried to pay off a witness to remain silent. i don't think we have much reason to take john griffin at his word. and i think the fact that he has engaged in these things shows that as a person, there is not much he is not willing to do when it comes to preserving his own freedom was now turned to the us, where hundreds of amazon workers are protesting,
8:27 pm
demanding that the company's leadership recognize their labor union and provide adequate compensation for an injury incurred on the job of responded. caleb often is at the scene right there in new york on. caleb, let's talk about the atmosphere. what's it like? what's going down? sure was you can see behind me there are amazon work is as well as their allies in the labor movement, and they are protesting. and the word is workplace health and safety issue is that they want protection from coven 19. they want a workplace health and safety regulations to make sure they don't get sick on the job. and the country is still reacting to the tornado at an amazon warehouse that killed 6 workers. earlier in this month, the many are looking on and looking at the text messages that were sent to drivers and wondering if this big international corporation really as any concern about the
8:28 pm
safety of its employees or the workers here. they also want union recognition. they want the right to have collective bargaining and i make a contract with their employer. i'm so it's quite a lively protest of people from different walks of life. amazon workers from here in the city, labor activist, people from other labor unions, political groupings, et cetera. but the target is jeff bezos, that they raise the concerns about the fact that while amazon workers pay is considerably low, jeff bezos managed to avoid quite a bit of taxes. and this huge multinational corporation doesn't seem to be paying, it's their share of taxes. so quite a, quite an interesting demonstration here. quite an interesting gathering. we'll be giving you more updates as it goes on later in the evening. right. we know that if it does freak out into something else, you'll be there for us to cover it all and kill them up in new york. thanks. and does it for me? i'll be back in about 31 and a half minutes with another phone. fresh local news, say with us,

8:30 pm
especially if they're emotionally charged term falsely being grown. so why are groups and being allowed to assign labels without any accountability, if they are inaccurate and why this could have the potential to be dangerous and going into the midterm. our panel will discuss any time with all the modern medical advances we're seeing. you would think like expectancy, what off the grow, but it is actually reduced in the top reason is not even coping. we will give you the details. i'm sky now use and you're watching r t america. so let's get started. ah thanks for joining us. you know, with massive port congestion over the last few months, causing the supply chain to actually experience a bottleneck nationwide. many of question whether consumers will turn out for this year's holiday shoppe.
