italy reporting 50599 new cases. italy is also reporting the 2nd highest number of deaths because of covered in europe after the united kingdom, with some 141 new depths reported now. and then if we move across to the united kingdom here on friday, we had another record high, a 122186 new cases being reported. largely because of this highly contagious on recon variant. now the local government in the u. k, is losing political points with boris johnson's popularity rating. it has taken a snow dive and has hit record, 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,
9:04 pm
the health authorities have come forward and admitted that they are no longer tracing contexts of people who have court kobe. in other words, they have no comprehensive follow up regarding people infected and who they are 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 german city of dust off. but then again, on the same day, you had people waiting in long queues, in potsdam waiting to receive a vaccination. so the coven 19 pandemic remaining as controversial and as alarming as ever. me still forgot this out. there is a new form of code past that can really get under your skin, find out more in
9:05 pm
a few minutes thought. oh headlines. military is offered to hold talks with russia on january 12th, after months of tensions between the 2 sides controller and has a response saying it's considering the proposal. the moscow top priority is thought nato's eastwood expansion and west military moment in ukraine. those issues were addressed by president booting this week during the traditional end of year q, and a with the media. ah, no, she needs to whittle directions, will not depend on negotiations. they will depend on unconditional compliance with russia, security today. and in the future. we've made clear nato's further movement to the east. is john acceptable? was not clear about it. are we the ones who deploy missiles next? the united states? no. as the united states who brought their missiles next to our home bill ready on our doorstep? is it an excessive demand? no more a tax systems near our home. is there something unusual about this? yet?
9:06 pm
no, we're doing. we're not an inch towards the east. we were told in a 1990 them what they fooled us. they outrageously deceived us. 5 ways of nato expansion, and now they say, will have ukraine as whoa here . 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. will 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 with the faith. and while this must be fought, not my direct instructions and shouts, but by the support of our traditional values of them. so it is necessary 1st of all, to rely on the nature of the investigation. 17 criminal cases have been initiated under, under investigation. over a 1000 people dismissed and their criminal cases opened against the law. i assure you there's not a single investigator interested in any case. this is why we have
9:07 pm
a divided the investigative committee and the prosecutor's office. there problem, yes, there is a problem. we need to work with it and we're learn 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, of no way long time ago, i spoke with one the form you as president guess with whom he told me the boycott. the olympics in los angeles in moscow were 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 developments of china. there were no other motives. ah, you know these very clearly we need 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,
9:08 pm
for stabilization in afghanistan. bullshit do now to help the people of afghanistan . and 1st of all, 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. now, another topic that was raised to natural gas. so europe, of course, was hit by record prior his this year, meaning higher bills for millions of households. some of the worst, the pointing the finger at moscow saying it's withholding gas. present brewton gave a different explanation for the crisis. the will to him, it with both of them with they are lying to us there confusing every one does promise, shipping the entire volume requested by counter agents. in accordance with the existing contract, we was saying we must not destroy long term contracts, but know that the european commission, we must use market terms. the market will regulate it. 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,
9:09 pm
russia has nothing to do with that. a. he said that gas brown 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 its supplies to germany, for example, by 10 percent. but that's not enough. i'm in and the russia is always whenever there is a, any issue, any contentious issue or even a domestic problem. it seems that in europe and the west in general, i, in the habit of sort of resurrecting russia as the scarecrow to, you know, hang all the possible problems on and the, you know, you can be irritated by that. but after a certain amount of time, he's still paying attention and i think this is the state that the company is at the moment. it's just simply boring. you know, like to narrow down every problem in the world onto the rushes. plotting are evil
9:10 pm
doing and more than half of outs of the are too scared to say what they really think. the new poll found the word about being canceled by friends, colleagues, even their own families, ortiz shut it. it was that she has the story. council culture is silencing academics, a 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. gov. paul. majority of brits are living in fear of will being canceled. the majority of britons 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. no 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,
9:11 pm
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 a government as that actually. so i think people are frightened to always say what they feel in cases 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 what you get caught or has to think there's a lot of things for the climate change cove age or whatever. there's no discussion that is the narrative and you of the group or wish cause you, dan has a lot of issues where you fear fred, very careful about what you say, and that's not right now for good debate. and we used to have a good healthy democracy, could have a debate in this country where you could say things and then you'd have to all of
9:12 pm
your case and some people just don't want to argue, i want to hear the 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 or traditional a private to the apology. atonement forgiveness is no longer enough to warrant if they weren't accountability, social justice going, caught, and the more controversial the view on any topic like race, immigration breck, that the more you should keep your thoughts yourself and your mouth shop most 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 spelled out of control into a social media merciless mob rule, but having some from taking the risk of being cancelled. like for instance, j. k. rowling and her auntie trump public position. worse bees, freedom of slavery, ignorance is trans. the biggest thing to vigil. hurrah! too is a woman? well, that wasn't her only comment. there's been plenty more and as a result,
9:13 pm
she's been wiped off the face of the earth even by the world. she created the bought the community and the movie production team deleted her from scripts. meanwhile, r h b yos, 20th anniversary. she was bought. not only that a number of couldn't leaks class they really do exist, announced their rebranding to distance themselves away from j. k. rowling, the tough. that's a trans exclusionary radical feminist. but there. 2 are others in her potty school of thought. jackie rally 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 trans, exclusionary radical feminist onto 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
9:14 pm
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 institution like the old, vague, 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,
9:15 pm
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 the things that are being canceled out, or i'm afraid the things that have always made people laugh. so is it time to cancel, cancel culture, because pretending somebody doesn't exist because they've touched a nerve, is a simply slope as let's face it. we've all upset someone somewhere, haven't we?
9:16 pm
now you might think the idea of implanting mon krashib, sony, oscar, and to show colbert immunity is just a conspiracy theory. the swedish companies actually developed such a device. we took the people behind invention. i or the reverse opposed to acknowledge that can be used for many different things. and right now it's very convenient to have a cobit passport for ways acceptable on your implant. so in case your phone runs out about 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 show them my arm and swipe me with a smartphone and then that pops up the passport that i have on my shift. so you
9:17 pm
don't need a special ed for this kind of similar to a q r code. just of course i don't want the cure code on my skin right. i today marks 30 years since the ussr was formerly dissolved. the heating was replaced by 15 independent states among them. russia aren't, he's more, a guy takes a look back at what's changed since the soviet flag over the feminine was lowered. for the last time. 30 years ago, humanity witness. the spectacle, the dramatically changed the course of history. the spectacular overnight collapse of the ussr sulu lucrative as a result of a newly formed situation. creation of the commonwealth of independent states. i seize my activities in the post of the ussr president, show, so uniqueness,
9:18 pm
ah, here enough, 300000000 people woke up with a new nationality. their homeland gone race that the stroke of the pet. 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, that 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 too sudden, too intense to unpredictable where the intent was evolution. the result was revolution, nationalism worried up with frightful speed. across the u. s, i saw
9:19 pm
a leads and opportunities in various republics, clamored for power and independence. the result was climactic. the u. s. a sorry says in his existence as a subject of international law and to jail political 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 . ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback hundreds of millions of people have thrown off communism dictatorship or apartheid
9:20 pm
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 . it wasn't just void and uncountable debts. i'd was misery,
9:21 pm
pure and simple economic social health care collapse. the rise of transnational mafias and we'll get eyes crime fraud and corruption sisted across the former soviet union. ah . ringback 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, he gave the russians stability. agatha. unfortunately, are common fatherland, the soviet union dissolved. as you know, the core of this common states is historical russia, the russian federation,
9:22 pm
which is, you know, lost almost half of its industrial potential, half of its economy, the same share of its population and a substantial part of its territory. what can we do about this? now, i've already said that we're storing the soviet union would be pointless and impossible for many reasons and not even desirable because i'm the senior, which makes sense to want the u. s. 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 lamentations about the demise of the soviet union have gotten a noisier and stronger over the years. so the concern is that he's actually
9:23 pm
as a legacy project seeking to reconstitute to 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 lives on, in 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 are on the minds of rush, has rivals who still think in terms of blocks and super bowers stuck as they are in the past. who believe that russia lost it say, forever when the ussr collapsed, regardless of the fact that 30 years have passed since i runic, isn't it even in death? the soviet union still shapes our futures. and we spoke with a british,
9:24 pm
a story of soviet history. geoffrey roberts, he says the fall of the union game came as a global shock and was a catastrophe. for many people. did the collapse of the sub union agenda much, much, much was just one of the series of all of really shocking events that occurred in the previous several years. i mean, it was nothing to compare with the shock and full of berlin war and a handful of congress for easter eastern eastern europe. so it wasn't shock as it appears in retrospect. what you also have to remember is that there was kind of fake lease for the collab, so it wasn't clear that it was a, it was to promote kind of profound collapse, actually begun because his place then became this a come off of independence. nice. which of course doesn't exist. so there are some hopes that you would continue in some form in the form of this camp of an independent ice shot that effectively,
9:25 pm
that didn't happen. it was not until 1992 that it became clear just how radical and catastrophic goes. the collapse of soviet union was voted also said, once that you know, anyone who doesn't regret the passing of the ussr has no as to how they want to think that can be recreated. has no, has no brains. yeah. a lot of people in present day or russia were better off in science probably at times. then they offered 30 as later. there's also a certain kind of nostalgia thought we saw it, the glories organized. and in a way, i have a certain sympathy for this. this nostalgia and this yearning for the past in infancy, i consider myself to be an international i you know, a certain aspects of the south soviet multinational site. i still find appealing,
9:26 pm
annexed audio commentary furthers. it's look at the gun control debate in oregon, the usa. we're back in 30 minutes with the latest join us again with a with
9:27 pm
what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation, let it be an arms race. his on offense bearing dramatic development the only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful . very katy killed time. time to sit down and talk. ah, one of the major fights, chance are merged. go head with president bush junior. was in 2008, this so called bucharest company. at that stage, the united states actually wanted for georgia and ukraine to get them and nato membership to start this so called membership action class. and it was germany that stop that and then said, no, no,
9:28 pm
we don't want to do that because these countries will not add to the stability of the nato, which is one of the prerequisites and the nature of treaty. welcome back to the lars large and show it's 7 minutes after the hour. and i'm in one of the best places you can ever be on a friday for 1st amendment friday because we're making it a 2nd amendment friday. i'm in northwest armory on se mclaughlin, this place is a mad house today. it looks like, you know, shopping day after thanksgiving. our business has been exponential amount of growth. there's been a lot more interest in personal protection. as census, there's been a couple of national tragedies. there's also been a lot more interest um with the possibility of legislation and people concerned that they're not going to be able to get access to things that they used to be able
9:29 pm
to have access to. ah, the oregon legislatures considering for really bad bills, they would take away people's right to carry guns in various places, including one of them would limit your ability to carry in a school. if the janitor, it's sandy hook, elementary, had carried a pistol and he heard the shooting down the hallway and people screaming and then saw a young man not in a police uniform running at him with an a r 15 and had shouted to the guys, stop and then pulled his pistol out and shot adam lanza would that have been a good thing or a bad thing. the folks like jenny burdick and those, you know, those nitwits, why would they think it would be a bad thing for people, legitimate law abiding people to carry a pistol in a school plan. so rally started, i'll be saying a few words and then introducing other legislators who are coming with you heard
9:30 pm
anything at the with about counter protest. we expect a counter protest. do you guys have the like the little sleeves with for going down the salem because seats fires while they are rally and we're going to go show them that they're not going to get away with the safety of our, of our family, of our children is there a connection is always meaningful. we have more than a 1000 people with more than 90 pounds with .
