11:04 am
learned december of some 23 percent. and that is largely because of his poor dealings with the co. 19 pandemic. and a number of scandals here in germany, the health authorities have come forward and admitted that they are no longer tracing contacts of people who have court covert. in other words, there's no comprehensive follow up regarding people infected and who they coming into contact with. take a listen. many germans believe that they do not have to be quarantined as a contact person because they are vaccinated. but that is not true. now the society here in germany is divided on christmas day. you had thousands of people who turned out to protest against vaccinations and that was in the city of data. but then again, on the same day, you had people waiting in long queues in puts them waiting to receive the vaccination. so the coven 19 pandemic remaining as controversial and as alarming as
11:05 am
ever. are i still the company out here on our international the new form of cobra pass that could really get under your skin will give you details on that in just a few. the but for now, here on the weekly nato has offered the whole talks with russia on the 12th of january. it's after months of tension between the 2 sides. the kremlin has responded saying, as considering the proposal, i russia's top priority, as you probably know, is to stop nato's eastern expansion and western military involvement in ukraine. those issues were addressed by president bruton this week during his annual end of the year q and a marathon went off a 4 hours plus with the media. ah, no shaggy streubal directions, you not depend on negotiations. they will depend on unconditional compliance with
11:06 am
russia's security today. and in the future, we medi clear nato's further movement to the east is unacceptable, was not clear about it. are we the ones who deploy missiles next? the united states know that the united states who brought their missiles next to our home, already on our doorstep, is it an excessive demand? no more attack systems near our home. is there something unusual about this yet? no, we're doing. we're not an inch towards the east. we were told in a $990.00 than what they fooled us. the outrageously deceived us 5 ways of nato expansion and now they say, will have ukraine as wow yeah . usually if i take the traditional approach, that is a woman, is a woman, a man is a man, a mother is a mother, a father is a father. she is not all the peoples of the russian federation have a certain internal moral protection against such obscurity. them let them in the west do whatever they want, but also fit. and while this must be fought, not my direct instructions and shouts,
11:07 am
but by the support of our traditional values of them. so it is necessary 1st of all, to rely on the data of the investigation. 17 criminal cases have been initiated under under investigation. over a 1000 people dismissed and there are criminal cases opened against the law. i assure you, there's not a single investigator interested in any case. this is why we have divided the investigative committee and the prosecutors off. is there problem? yes, there is a problem. we need to work with it and rely on a conscientious, fully fledged investigation of those crimes. and these are clearly the crimes that have been committed. we need to bring it to an end so that everyone understands the punishment for these offences is inevitable. ah, yeah, i have no way long time ago i spoke with one the formulas presidents, guests with whom he told me the boy goes to the olympics in los angeles in moscow with big mistakes, including on the side of the united states. and united states keeps on making them again, why the diplomatic and political boycotts of china. they tried to hold back the
11:08 am
elements of china there in though on the motives mm. movies for you city id. when it to be realistic, the forces that appeared at the helm of afghanistan are trying to have different ethnic groups in the countries leadership. and this alone can create conditions for hope, for stabilization in afghanistan. bullshit, do now to help the people of afghanistan. and 1st of all, it should be done by the countries that created such severe damage to the afghan economy and people. those were there for 20 years. destroying the economy should be the 1st to help on our side. we'll do everything depending on us. so as you probably remember, our europe, so record gas prices this week, and although they have dipped a little bit that still very high. and the west continued to blame moscow for they're saying that it's actually withholding gas. the russian president gave his own explanation for the crisis. the rule to him with both of them when they are lying to us, they are confusing. every one has promised shipping the entire volume requested by
11:09 am
counter agents. in accordance with the existing contract, we were saying we must not destroy long term contracts, but know that the european commission, we must use multi term the market will regulated. well, here's how it regulates it. we have 2000 dollars, 1000 cubic meters. you're welcome, the issue of gas. it's pretty clear that you know, russia has nothing to do with a. he said that gasper on one is one of the few companies in the world that has increased its supplies to europe. whereas, for example, the american suppliers have diverted gas from the liquefied natural gas from the european market toys, the markets where they can make more money. russia hasn't done that, it increased it supplies to germany, for example, by 10 percent. but that's not enough. i'm in and the russia is always whenever there is any issue, any contentious issue or even a domestic problem. it seems that europe and the west in general, i in the habit of sort of resurrecting russia as the scarecrow to hang all the
11:10 am
possible problems online for, you know, you can be irritated by that. but after a certain amount of time, you can get attention and i think this is, if they've got that from you, this isn't the moment. if you simply boring, you know, like to narrow down every problem in the world onto the rushes, launching aren't evil doing what it may seem hard to believe in this day and age, but perhaps not more than half of people in the u. k. are too scared to say what they really think the new poll found they're worried about being canceled, whether it be by friends, colleagues, or even their own family. a correspondent shantia, it was dashti, picks up the store council culture is silencing academics, gagging public figures and wiping celebrities off the face of the planet. wait, can i really say that? who knows? but i'm not the only one biting my tongue as, according to you got poll, majority of great living in fear of well being canceled. the majority of britons
11:11 am
57 percent, say they have at least sometimes found themselves stopping themselves from expressing their political or social views for fear of judgment or negative responses from others. the idea or apartment can be cancelled, or in other words, blocked from having a platform is happening to hundreds with a very similar cycle. you say something offensive receive a public backlash, and suddenly you're gone done a finish cancelled by by. but it's only happening to big names and faces, but people like you and me work online on dates and even at home. i think we're living in a coach now of bullying, bullying in workplaces the government actually. so i think people are frightened to always say what they feel in case there's a come back on. so the main she made you seem to have one. so a point of view of everything. and so if you say in different you get, so it's quite, you get quite a has to think there's a lot of things for the climate, change,
11:12 am
covey or whatever. there's no discussion that is the narrative. and you of the group or wish cause you down has a lot of issues where you fear fred, very careful about what you say and that's not right now, a good debate. and we used to have a good healthy democracy. could have a debate and country where you could say things and then you'd have to all your case and some people just don't want to argue. i want to hear the ever argument. i just want to shut you down and say, no, you can't tell you that you don't allow to say that i thought device. okay? prior to the apology, atonement forgiveness is no longer enough to warrant if they weren't accountability . social justice going caught more controversial to view on any hot topic like race, immigration breck set, the more you should keep your thoughts yourself and your mouth shut. those with less progressive views on device of social topics, feel more reluctant to voice their opinion. some say rather than being politically correct, the whole thing has been spun out of control into his social media,
11:13 am
merciless mob rule. but it hasn't felt some from taking the risk of being cancelled . like for instance, j. k. rowling and her auntie trans, public position, worries, peace, freedom of slavery, ignorance, his strength, the meanest individual. hurrah! too is a woman. well, that wasn't her only comment. there's been plenty more and as a result, she's been wiped off the face of the earth even by the world. she created the pot to community and the movie production team deleted. have from scripts. meanwhile, h b o is 20th anniversary. she was baud. not only that, a number of quidditch leaks tasks they really do exist, announced that they're rebranding to distance themselves away from j. k. rowling, the tough that's a trans exclusionary radical feminist. but there are others in her potty school of thought. jackie raleigh wrote all the harry potter books by herself and they canceled her because she said gender was a fact. and then the trans community got mad and they started calling her turf
11:14 am
trans, exclusionary radical feminist on tune, turf gender as a fact. well, trans employees and allies at netflix stage to walk out forcing the c e o to publicly apologize when you ah meanwhile, team tough relished in the drama. if this is what being cancels is like i love it. the song continues as monty python star, terry gilliam. got canceled for endorsing chapels, netflix special shortly after the old vic right here in london, announcer pulling his shirt into the woods for miss november schedule. it is very said that a great cultural institutions like the old, vague,
11:15 am
allowed itself to be intimidated into cancelling our production of into the woods by small group of closed minded humor, averse i. d. o. x on their stuff. my unspeakable crime was recommending my facebook followers to watch netflix special by brilliant and provoked if american committed they did, and civilization didn't collapse. ok, so that's on the most extreme end of the scale. but at the end of the day, how hard is it not to say something that's obviously donning turns out really hard indeed cancel culture. this cancelling this punishment, it's everywhere. punishment and i for and i, you said that therefore you must never work again. sooner or later the counselors will win. oh, british actors of prime time telling more and let been thinks even comedy is now on the verge of being canceled. it's a bit like laughter in church. something has to be forbidden to make you really laugh, to make you belly laugh. it's when you shouldn't be laughing. and so therefore all
11:16 am
the things that are being cancelled out, or i'm afraid the things that i've always made people laugh. so is it time to cancel, cancel culture, because pretending somebody doesn't exist because they've touched a nerve, it's a temporary slope as let's face it. we've all upset someone somewhere, haven't we? i caught up or down here in moscow. you might think that the idea rubin planting micro chips under your skin to show cove it immunity is just a conspiracy theory, or swedish company is actually developed such a device. we spoke to the people behind it. i are there in verse opposed to ignore the that can be used for many different things . and right now it's very convenient to have a passport for waste accessible on your input. so in case your phone runs out about
11:17 am
3, it's always accessible to ah, the implant is readable by and the smartphone that has and if the function. so i can go to a restaurant or a movie theater i just showed in my arm and swipe me with a smartphone. and then that pops up the passport that i have on my shift. so you don't need a special ed for this kind of similar to a q r code. just up of course i don't want the cure code on my skin, right. i roughly halfway through the weekly program here were few dimensional still to come . can you believe it? it's exactly 30 years since the us that's our officially cease to exist here on our team will be reliving that historical turning point in just a moment. me,
11:18 am
i join me every 1st day on the alex simon show. when i was speaking to guests in the world, the politics sport, business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. me. oh is your media a reflection of reality? in a world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation for community. are you going the right way, or are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true?
11:19 am
was his way in the world corrupted. you need to descend, have join us in the depths. all remained in the shallows. ah, well it could be drawn out here on this sunday for the weekly on our team. i believe it or not today does mock 30 years since the u. s. s. i was formally dissolved or the union, of course, was replaced by 15 independent states. of course rusher among them. law senior correspondent, murat gasdio, now takes a look back. it was changed since the soviet flag over the kremlin was lowered. 30 years ago, humanity witnessed a spectacle. the dramatically changed the course of history. the spectacular overnight collapse of the ussr. she loo sloan realty, too. as a result of
11:20 am
a newly formed situation, creation of the commonwealth of independent states, i seize my activities in the post of the ussr president, to show, so uniqueness, ah, here enough, 300000000 people woke up with a new nationality. their homeland gone race that the stroke of the pen and it began with the perestroika, a radical rethinking of soviet mentality, identity and ideology. we must begin 1st by restructuring our thinking on psychology, organizationally in the style and ways working. i will say frankly though we do not restructure ourselves and i'm deeply convinced of this, that we will not rebuild economy or social life. but perestroika proved too much
11:21 am
too sudden, too intense to unpredictable where the intent was evolution. the result was revolution, nationalism reared up with frightful speed across the u. s. sr. a leads and opportunities and various republics clamored for power and independence. the result was climactic. the u. s. a. sorry susan, his existence as a subject of international law and a geopolitical reality. it was the dawn of a new age. that was pessimism, but there was also optimism what marvels could piece bring. a great empire nicholas superpower, was split into independent countries, which got the chance to cooperate with each other as closely as they wanted, without any bloodshed. and so began all flood of cultural exchange, as western ideas rolled and roiled across the former ussr. ah
11:22 am
. ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback hundreds of millions of people have thrown off communism dictatorship or apartheid former adversaries. now cooperate with us in diplomacy and global problem solving. reality, however, turned out to be far uglier than the propaganda post as will mainstream media promised the guiding hand of the communist party. god, old and buried hatreds, re ignited, and neighbors turned on each other. ah .
11:23 am
it wasn't just war and uncountable debts. i'd was misery, pure and simple economic social health care collapse, the rise of transnational matthews and organized crime fraud and corruption sisted across the former soviet union. ah . ringback ringback ah, a traumatized, the people undoubtedly the misery and the hopelessness of the 90s, they yearned for stability. not for communism, no, nor the ussr, but for a semblance of order. and whatever his, the tractors might have to say about putin,
11:24 am
he gave the russians stability. agatha. unfortunately, our common fatherland, the soviet union, dissolved acres. as you know, the core of this common states is historical. russia, the russian federation garcia, which is, you know, lost almost office industrial potential. ha ha, from its corner he, the same share of its population. and as residential concert its territory. what can we do about this noun? i've already said the restoring the soviet union would be pointless and possible for many reasons before and not even desirable. because on the selena, which make sense to you want the you as a saw communists back. elections have made that very clear. but to build a new state, a new russia, one which provides for the people, rather than uses them and at the same time, evoked the sort of respect that the soviet union did. while that scares russia's opponents, hooton's plan scares them. you know, i think the concern is that president putin's public lamentations and private
11:25 am
lamentations about the demise of the soviet union have gotten on noisier and stronger over the years. so the concern is that he's actually as a legacy project seeking to reconstitute the soviet union. and then, you know, would his appetite be fulfilled with that eating or what he seek? the soviet union has been gone for 30 years, but had spirited lives on it lives on the hearts of former citizens who now remember only the glory days, the good pots. they forget the empty shelves, the food lines, the k g b at lives on the minds of russia's rivals, who still think in terms of blocks and super bowers stuck as they are in the past. who believe that russia lost, did say forever when the usaa saw collapsed?
11:26 am
regardless of the fact that 30 years have passed since i rodnick, isn't it even in death, the soviet union still shapes off uterus. gorbachev rolled out a number of liberalizing reforms in a period known as perestroika. censorship was abolished and the 1st competitive election since the 1917 revolution was allowed with international human rights conventions enshrined in soviet law. but sadly, all of that did very little to stabilize the country. now veteran and german diplomat and former ambassador to russia, ernst you again stood knits told us the idea that russia would immediately turn into a democracy was just an illusion. there was a necessity for change in russia and yes, the north end plasmas were the preconditions for peaceful change in
11:27 am
russia. i know from my personal experience of many years work in russia, how much russians were afraid of freight, of any type of repetition of revolutionary movement as happened in 1917, 2932. i think the historic greatness of got much of is that he understood the change was absolutely necessary in russia said that the soviet union could not go on like this, as it has done in many decades. i think there were a lot of many lose. there were a news that russia would become democratic immediately, like turning over the switch, and then it's from the data shipped back over to democracy. as i said before, it couldn't work and it didn't. so i think the illusions that we would have in new rochelle, which would be western european, what had a she need,
11:28 am
you could not come through any kind of change in the political thinking takes a long time. and we, the weston, as i don't exclude myself. i don't exclude my german government. we were just too impatient. we thought this was all happening overnight and the content over night. so 30 years later, you can watch more of that archive footage nazi dot com. but also off if you tube channel as well. thanks for joining us here on the sunday for the it's a sunday weekly program saskia taylor here with the desk and half an hour's time. i do hope you can join us. ah ah .
11:29 am
i was diagnosed with cancer in 2005. when the doctors told me the cancer was incurable. i knew i had to make a change. so i decided to travel to one of the most toxic places in america. florida. one of florida is biggest industries and best kept secrets, is fostering and the biggest layer is $85000000000.00 industry is mosaic. and i, there are reports of millions of gallons of contaminated water now flowing into the florida aqua for a chronic. well, you know, i don't want to hear that word poets name, but that's what it is in 2013 my,
