it just on 2 o'clock here in moscow, you're watching art international. my name is peter scott. thank you for joining covey cases, have searched in the united states with the weekly average, surpassing 360000. throughout the pandemic, the world health organization has dressed. the only way forward is to buy must vaccination, and one knock on effects of that big profits for big pharma. 3 companies, pfizer buy on take a madonna between them, reports and they've been raking in over $90000000.00 a day. is our t saskia? taylor 2021 beer we discovered does ready no cure for greed. just off big pharma, pfizer is forecasting $15000000000.00 in revenue from its covert vaccine. this year . it is our 1st profitable quarter, hitting that $1900000000.00 mark a majority of which is their cobra, 1900 vaccine of course, $1000.00 every 2nd,
6:02 pm
pfizer buy on tech and modern are made one $1000.00 every 2nd. but it turns out that drug companies like to pop to pills at once, money on power, and we're better to wield one's power than in washington. d. c. introducing congress says biggest lobbyist, big pharma, which last year dropped a cool $266000000.00 to sway america. lawmakers though, given how the holy trinity of fires, madonna biotech was averaging over 19000000 a day last yet it's really just loose change less than 3 days. walk. in fact, for the rest of us though, it's an awful lot. you know what, there's also an awful lot of in the u. s. capital big pharma lope. yes. in fact, so many, but they are number congressmen. 3 to one. so what does all that cash exposure get them? well, pretty much anything that they want. this is a very powerful industry with significant lobbying cloud. it's very good at knowing
6:03 pm
exactly how many votes they need to kill pieces of legislation and figuring out a way to get those votes. it's funny though, because you think, but with a democrat run, a house and senate. pharmaceutical giants would have had a tough year. after all, 3 years, the parties been promising to fight the greed 1st we'll take on the drug and insurance companies and hold them accountable for the prices they charge and the harm they cause. it's called valiant pharmaceuticals. i'm going after them. we are going to stop this. this is predatory pricing, and then we'll tell the pharmaceutical companies thanks, but no thanks for overpriced drugs pay the highest prescription drug prices of any developed nation in the world, but enough is enough. the greed of the pharmaceutical industry is killing americans and making many of them much sicker than they otherwise what have been it has got to stop. so we need congress to finish the job, to come together and make a difference in people's lives. turns out though,
6:04 pm
making money is so much more fun than making a difference in people's lives. in fact, 60 percent of big farmers know be money goes to democrats. so when in april a plan was proposed to knock down truck prices, surprise it got voted down one of the people against fit new jersey senator bob mendez. you know how much menendez is pocketed from the drug store? be this year? $80000.00. then along came the build back, better act, which among other things wanted to make medication actually affordable a ridiculous idea. so what did big pharma do? it splash some serious cash to block the bell? big farmer will spend, do, and say whatever it takes to defeat any legislation that it will kirby's unilateral power to dictate prices of prescription drugs. apparently the big pharma rules that leave almost one in 4 americans unable to afford buy regular medication is necessary because while reef touch,
6:05 pm
we have an obligation to ensure that the sale of our medicines provide us with the resources necessary to invest in future research and development and while the lobbies $1000000.00 ad failed, bill bought patrice on the rocks anyway. so fingers crossed, you know, what came as a real shock. other than politicians, putting money for people and pharmaceutical joints. not caring about public health . the fact that big pharma plays dottie 1st drug companies have raised prices with abandon, especially when they succeed in delaying a blocking competition. in some cases, tied to higher pay for executives. second, companies have manipulated the peyton system and marketing exclusive. it is to extend their monopolies. 3rd, all the companies, the committee investigated, have employed anti competitive strategies to suppress generic competition. really, but no one i was having control of like saving medication. also,
6:06 pm
it wouldn't be matter. the pandemic costs are just a little while longer. they got on a path it and they want to keep this path there. and these other therapeutics aren't really going to make them a lot of money. politicians, i'm big pharma harder walk in d. c. save lives, solving the people, and showing each and every day that there's no drug, more addictive than money. power. and everything in between. moscow has lashed out to the u. k. after leaked documents revealed the britain plans to spend millions of pounds to promote this agenda. an influence on society in russia, the papers purportedly from the british foreign office were published by the investigative group undecided on his websites. russia's foreign ministry spokesman brought down the trove of data that was exposed. the under side archives contain dozens of documents with project descriptions. lists of names are going is ations and all of the accounting fraud. the numbers boggled imagination. more than one
6:07 pm
point. 3000000000 roubles have been allocated for the period from 2020 to 2020 free to finance programs to influence public organizations. and for them, government agencies and transform the course of russia in the direction great britain needs. well, earlier my colleagues nikki, are in and what we see, she thought through the developments. what we have here is a truth of late documents that have been published on line by the script on the side, appearing to reveal this, evolved network of and job to receive grants or funding from the british authorities for dozens of projects within russia. the most sensational revelations here is the creation of a cohort of 25 elite who could go on for leadership role. it could be passive, strategic change within russia. according to the documents, the aim would be to work with tensions within the country. now, if accurate, these are, of course, serious accusations, say we're talking about russia accusing the u. k. of meddling. and it's internal
6:08 pm
affairs. and usually, as we know, the series of the, the 1st is usually other countries accusing russia of meddling like the u. k. accused rush of meddling in the elections and 29. 19. for example. knowing lights all these revelations, the foreign ministry spokesman mcmurry as a heroine, has a keys, london of increasing polarization within russia. let's take a listen. the british are directly spending money on the build up of the internal political situation in the country. how else to explain the existence of a grand plan that involves sponsoring involvement in demonstrations and political rallies, as well as mentioning the growth of social tension and the polarization of society . now these lead documents also appeared to reveal a focus on the promotion of the l g, b t q plus a culture pushing for acceptance in russia. also, the documents describe russia as homophobic is particularly unfriendly to this community. but you know, it was just a few days ago, the platinum period was during his big annual speech to, to the press and to the public is robin of a 4 hours this time. and peter said,
6:09 pm
quote, if some, if someone thinks that a women and men are the same thing, then be my guest. but there is common sense. let me put and said, i stick to the traditional approach that a woman is a woman, a man is a man. a mom is a mom, and dad is a dad. i mean, some like call that a traditional society, a traditional culture and society in russia. this are the, however, describes russia as homophobic and unfriendly. exactly, exactly. but as these documents revealed, the aim of each of these projects is to deliver change within russia. also listed in the document says via one of these programs, russian n g a would be encouraged to rehabilitate to support migrant entering russia illegally. there is also talk of change to the system of training lawyers and this is all across russia on my side. now talking about this group, which had made these revelations that publish these documents on the side, we don't know too much about this group as yet. however, with such remarks, when the foreign ministry spokesman is looking like it's something which is being
6:10 pm
taken very seriously. now, so far, london has not commented on the issue. we have sent them an email, however, that the email inbox is full apparently, which is very unfortunate. however, when we do receive a response, we will of course, bring you up to speed. in the meantime, maria, however, is urging the u. k to respond one way or the other. the british for an office has only one way out to publicly declare that all this is fake misinformation. and of course highly likely what you can says that there are plans to interfere in the internal affairs of russia. repent change a tank to a yellow submarine. and lay low in bruges, while like i say, we're gonna have to wait to see how the u. k. responds to these revelations that are being published in the website and then we'll take it from there. now details of a settlement between convicted sex offender jeffrey epstein, i'm one of his accusers, virginia you, free be made public the movies. part of mr. feat,
6:11 pm
sexual abuse lawsuit against britain's prince. andrew kelly morgan picks up the story while we now have the documents and they do not mention the name of prince andrew and make no references to royalty, these documents have been made public prior to the day in which a decision will be made about whether or not charges against prince, andrew will be dismissed. now, prince andrew faces charges for sexual battery. and it's alleged by virginia roberts to fray that she had sex with him when she was 17 years old and was forced into doing so. prince andrew denies these allegations. now it's important to note there have been many developments around the jeffrey epstein case recently we saw the conviction of delane maxwell, the british socialite, who was convicted of having worked with jeffrey epstein to traffic miners for sex. and she was convicted of 5 counts of abusive minors in court. and she has been accused of essentially sex traffic and girls for epstein and his friends,
6:12 pm
which included a role of the elite for defense at the trial, argued that she was being made to pay for the crimes committed by jeffrey epstein. now there's been widespread media speculation that if she comes forward and accept responsibility for her actions and then proceeds to name names of those who participated in these activities with jeffrey epstein, that she could get a much lighter sentence that remains to be seen. what will take place in the lead up to her sentencing? now it's important to note that it's not only prince andrew that faces allegations virginia roberts to fray has also accused a harvard professor and prominent lawyer in the united states. so we'll be waiting to see what further developments take place and what big revelations could remain down the pike as the saga surrounding the scandal of jeffrey epstein continues. well, to discuss the story we can go live now to us journalists chadwick, moore,
6:13 pm
who's being closely following the story involving prince andrew chadwick. thanks for joining us. live here nazi international. i guess my 1st question might be, what in pipes do the details of this newly released document have on the case? well, just because as the report said, prince andrew is not explicitly named in this agreement. so this is an agreement that jeffrey epstein settled with virginia roberts in 2009, you received $500000.00 to basically relinquish any sort of future responsibility into it. specifically says the associate attorneys, employees, etc. now it doesn't name prince andrew affectively, but disagreement was used by allan dirt, who it was a very famous lawyer here in united states to absolve himself of a case that, that virginia roberts brought worth a good 70 disagreement and the judge dismissed it. now it does, he may have been working reps you at the time of attorney, in which case you would be specifically protected or maybe wasn't. we're not sure.
6:14 pm
and was hoping this agreement will also absolve him. a being sued by virginia roberts and tomorrow this judge in new york will decide whether or not the case can go forward. now, it's difficult, we don't really see all the documents, it's involved here. it's going to be really up to the judges discretion. certainly the mood of the time right now is probably going to be to let the casement form. however, it's really going to be at the judge's discretion. certainly if the judge denies it, and so that she cannot proceed with this case. there's obviously going to be people speculating that perhaps prince andrew has friends in the new york court system. you know, it's this, this whole epstein saga is really exposed how beliefs and how many wealthy are people the world have been protected for a long time against things like this. and how much if it's all, has a prince under position changed since he gave the infamous interview back in 2019
6:15 pm
right. that news my interview was really some of the most bizarre television that we've seen. it was borderline on all, the gar really. and the whole family you know, he for a long time roll up. 2 front and you have been seen a sort of problematic family sources. and it's not just the allegation that many other good that he cozy it up continuously with problematic world figures. and he's very difficult to work with and take no advice from royal advisers and that nature . so the family, as we continuing to distance themselves from andrew, especially after that bizarre interview. they don't really want him on the public guy right now. and there's no signs that you're going to be welcome to back in anytime soon, but certainly if this case goes forward, it's going to be even more bad. p r, for the world family. there's certainly going to keep to keep their distance from him. you've already touched on this in your previous answer, but does it be flight of it's not only on prince andrew himself and his ongoing case, but the role from himself. how do you think that even if it's, by,
6:16 pm
by this case, whether or not it goes to court? well, they seem to been doing it pretty well. you know, with both you know, the queen don't really to be blaming of her pretty much really like the queen. you know, don't forget, they've got this other megan mark will print jerry situation. that is also been not great for them to remember the family continue to be beloved by the public as well . and prince andrew's always been this kind of character in the in the tabloid. and you know, they kind of want to paint them as this robed figure in the royal family. and they've been pretty successful of doing that. but there's always going to be tell us gossip in drama and all this other stuff going on. certainly they're probably pretty smart to keep them out of the public eye right now. and the continue to do that. the time being what the verification is. do you think there are this document? do you think you might reveal of the people who, you know, that might expose all the possible people are involved in potentially in this,
6:17 pm
in the saga? right. and in virginia roberts of the original complaint back from 2009, she specifically said she was forced to have sex with adult male peers have been including royalty. so and then she lists some other kind of big document is extremely vague. so that is what present us hoping will protect him from the suit going forward. she's sort of claiming that he is the royalty that was mentioned in this, but he's not mentioned by name. it does not say british royalty or anything of that nature. who knows of other royals throughout the world? word baldness, steen world. but this is what he's saying, protected by that we're royalty. and again, the doctor, the intent is very vague. so that could either work to either either party is advantage really. and finally chadwick, what impact do you think the guilty verdict or video of glean maxwell will have on this situation? if any way, certainly it changes, you know,
6:18 pm
not perception or let's not pretend that judges are immune from what there's like guys what's happening the time. so we just have this verdict is guilty, verdict very fresh that she is guilty. so that's certainly going to be weighing, i would imagine on the judge's decision, at least, and in public opinion. you know right now that gives more steam to people wanting to see people victims. i'm sorry, one of the people who victimized these women allegedly brought to justice and they want more information about what was going on. so it does certainly help with the case virginia is lawsuit ever imagine well, chadwick totally more us journalists pleasure to have you here on the international . thanks for joining us. thank you. my pleasure. still ahead. 5 major weld powers had made a joint statement, vowing to prevent the spread of nuclear arms. it comes amid tens talks between nato and russia. ukraine, that story more coming shortly. ah

6:23 pm
there is absolutely nothing else to celebrate. the united states ended 20 years of war in afghanistan, the longest war and american history. we completed one of the biggest air lists in history with more than 120000 people evacuated to safety. no nation, no nation has ever done anything like it in all history. the only the united states had the capacity in the will, the ability to do it. and we did it today. where was the afghan army? where was the west and backed government? where did all the money go? the united states sunk more than a $100000000000.00 into rebuilding of data stock for reference adjusted for inflation. that is more than the united states spent on the martial blad to rebuild europe after world war 2. and the tragedy of it is that for

6:26 pm
absolute opposite of what had intended the bombing at cabal airport during the evacuation epitomized the afghan war, a senseless act, devoid of reason, which needless, he cut short so many lives. we will not forgive, we will not forget. we will hunt you down and make you pay. we've heard the same promise before. 20 years ago when america was united, and when it thought that it could change the world when it thought it was invincible. and when the people believed a president's promise more, i guess the f r t couple of galveston. ah, the use of nuclear weapons as a deterrence of war was reiterated on monday in a statements between 5 nuclear states. russia, the us, britain,

ukraine's position as a potential member of nato. bush has consistently denied it punks to attack ukraine . and so the build up of troops within its borders, a part of routine military exercises. there are plans for a series of meetings this month to find a diplomatic solution. what versus these as western encroachments on his borders. we spoke with until our to this brian becker gets his opinion on what the renewed calls mean. i think it's just a smoke screen. i think they want, it's like going to church on sunday and putting your hand on the bible and, and professing your love of, of all of the 10 commandments and going up the next day and killing somebody and say, but remember, i'm a good christian. i went to, i went to church on sunday. i think it's like that. it's really just a thin veneer, a big leave to mask the real us policy, which is to gain dominance, including the dominance with nuclear weapons and outer space in violation of the the 1967 treaty about outer space. the u. s. is clearly on the path to do that,
6:29 pm
to introduce nuclear technologies in the outer space, nuclear weapons technologies. this is a fig leaf. this should not be taken seriously. this is just camouflage on the part of the united states in a way, you know, dep diplomacy is always a kind of perjury. sort of a not telling the truth the real deal. well that's what this is. american and israeli flags have been burnt in surround on the 2nd of, of the assassination of general cassim, fully money. he was killed in iraq by drone strike on order that then us president donald trump. irradiance regards to the money is a hero, was bustling against her, isn't on monday, run about revenge for the general the destination. unless donald trump is put on trial for the killing the vis loading his for thousands in indonesia to leave home. at least one person is dead. the 3 businesses in updated and levels are failed to keep rising. last month, the contin george
