7:09 pm
a high terror alert set cause exxon is the world's leading uranium export, or as well the security collapse has pushed up the price of the radioactive heavy metal, which is used in the production of nuclear fuel by about 8 percent. the country also plays a prominent role in the crypto world. it's the 2nd largest bitcoin mining a nation. and a national internet outage has seemingly caused the global price to slump 10 percent in the last couple of days, putting bitcoin at its lowest price in 3 months, just above $40000.00. economist, peter earl, thinks instability such as what we're seeing in context on could become a long term crypto problem. i mean, bitcoin mining moved across the border from trying to gather, extend may of last year when chinese grabbed down except a great place for money because he has an abundance of cheap energy. but the thing is that again, we're finding out now that there's no real great or there's no perfect place. i
7:10 pm
mean, i suppose we could see mining move west georgia or as or by john. but there's a certain level of implicit either either political risk or instability. that's never going to be agile. there's never, never going to leave. it's always going to be there. because it's, dan, of course, has relationships with both russia and china. and yeah, if the miners were to move further west, we're still talking about the sphere influence of russia and the eastern european countries. if they move into western europe, then you're talking about the u. s. u b and that regulatory factor. so it will take a very independent states when that's frequent, which is and has a lot of economic autonomy to welcome bitcoin mining. otherwise, of course, she has an influence will continue to factor into where it's shaped to mind. russia has slammed remarks by us secretary of state anthony, blinking as hypocritical after he used harsh rhetoric on friday to address the
7:11 pm
presence of russian peacekeepers in catholics done in a speech prior to a nato meeting involving washington and moscow. he chose to focus on questioning the nature of the c s t o request for help, rather than on the actual riots in the region, just kill them up and comments. we have antony blank in the u. s. secretary of state. he was speaking to reporters about the top news events of the new year. now he touched on the situation and kaz at stan. one might expect that he would offer his condolences to those in the country were in danger. but instead of doing that, he decided to talk about another country. this is what was said by antony blanca. there are very particular drivers of what's happening because it's done right now as a said that go to economy and political matters. one lesson recent history is that a, once a russians are in your house, sometimes very difficult to get them to leave. it's important to note that he's
7:12 pm
speaking as the secretary of state of the country with a long pattern of remaining in countries that never invited them. syria never invited the united states in neither did afghanistan. neither did iraq. neither did a number of countries where the usa continues to maintain a military presence, but the situation with catholics dan is quite different. it's the authorities of cows extend that are asking for support and the block i has offered its support to cars at stan after the countries president reached out amid a security crisis, but apparently antony blank and thinks he knows better. this is what he said. it would seem to me that the cosmic authorities and government certainly have the capacity to deal appropriately with a, with protests such to do so in a way that respects the rights of protesters while maintaining order. so it's not clear why they feel the need for any outside assistance. so we're trying to learn more about it now. the president of cars at stan himself reached out for support
7:13 pm
amid the security crisis, arguing that they needed support in light of what's happening on the ground against any blank and says this support is not necessary and seems to know better than the forces that are actually in the country dealing with the crisis. meanwhile, we have gems. saki, the white house spokesperson along with blanking, questioning the legality of the o. s. c, emission being sent to cause extent. well, it is legal because 6 countries signed the treaty comprising this block and saying that if such an emergency situation did arise, that they would intervene in each other's countries for security reasons. and this is peacekeeping forces. these are peacekeeping forces being sent in. now, antony blanket and his remarks also touched on ukraine and the situation ukraine. and he said that the meeting that's coming up is aimed at at lowering the temperature between the united states and russia. but he then accused russia of, quote, gas lighting and pushing false narratives. when it comes to the fact that russia
7:14 pm
has raised its concerns about nato expansion eastward. he said, the say never has promised that nato wouldn't expand even though russia has provided many documented instances of united states making such a promise that has been broken. now we have a situation further, where at this point, at this point, ukrainian authorities and others are raising allegations about the fact that russia's troops are in russia. russia, moving its own troops around within its borders, is not a threat to ukraine, but the united states continues to play up. this idea that somehow russia is a threat to ukraine. and of course, we have this allegation that somehow russia that somehow united states never, never promised not to move nato eastward. here is what antony blank and said. there was no promise that nato wouldn't expand. nato never promised not to admit new members. it could not and would not. the open door policy was
7:15 pm
a cor provision of the 1949 north atlantic treaty that founded nato. russia has provided many examples of nato, promising not to expand the james baker. u. s. secretary of state said nato would not move an inch east. we also had statements from german foreign ministers in german. these statements were made. russia has documented this time and time again, us officials to present to pretend these things that russia has provided as evidence. they simply don't exist, they just pretend that they didn't happen. but regardless, the upcoming meeting is expected to cool temperatures. that is the aim, the hope is that us russia relations will improve. that is the aim of the meeting next week between the leader of russia and the leader of the united states. but this, these words from blink and just a few days beforehand or certainly not, not cooling tensions. we spoke to scott ritter, former us marine corps intelligence officer, who gave his perspective on why the u. s. is not keen on cfo peacekeepers in
7:16 pm
context on it's pure hypocrisy, but it's so par for the course when it comes to not just the biden administration, but frankly, speaking, any american administration in the post cold war era, the united states continues to be a bitter bad tom, somebody like vladimir putin took over from a personally, boris yeltsin. i mean, the 1990 s, where the ideal for the united states, a compliant russia was replaced by no a stronger leader who sought to assert a, you know, russian sabra, to either can be no doubt to what russia's doing because extent today is lawful it's part of a treaty relationship. they were requested to intervene um and they are doing so effectively still the come on are to international. the british prime minister is once again accused of corruption. after he seems to suggest people, do political favors in return for a controversial make over on the his flat story much more coming up say with us
7:17 pm
to what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy, even foundation, let it be an arms race. it is on offense. very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time time to sit down and talk. oh, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation, whole community. are you going the right way or are you being that somewhere?
7:18 pm
direct? what is true was his faith in the world corrupted. you need to descend, have join us, and the devil will remain in the shallows. ah, welcome back with his rti international now the british prime minister is once again having defend of corruption allegations. after it emerged, he was held revealing text messages from a watchdog probing sleaze in them. boris johnson asks a party donor for more money for luxury refurbishments to his flat and seemed to do to suggest that he will do political favors and return his rivals as say that it smacks of cronyism it's pretend deliver both at bars. johnson did know who was
7:19 pm
paying for his luxury flat renovations. if so, that is corruption, plain and simple. by attempting to hide the truth, baris john santa minds, his own office. it stinks of the was kind of conservative cronyism with berries. johnson, simon, they're happy to scratch his donna's back to get his flat to his stop in return. while that is indeed the case of cause new year new me hasn't exactly defined bar as johnson's 10 year this year, whatsoever. in fact, is embroiled in fresh accusations of tory sleeve, corruption even fools in the prime minister to give a quote, sincere and humble apology for crucial messages relating to the downing street flat refurbishment of cause. you remember last year orest johnson was merged to seek the cash to pay for this rebound. of course, prime ministers are allowed up to $30000.00 pounds every single year. if a force johnson spent well over a 100000 pounds, now it seems like the very man that coughed up the halls of this cash with
7:20 pm
a tory donor who at the very same time, was seeking to see a great exhibition, which is a set essentially a showcase of british innovation and the great empire. now these text messages dated back to november of 2020 where bars. johnson was trying to get the approval of a top interior designer to transform this flag which was being described at the time as a bit of a tip. now, despite apologizing, barnes johnson says he doesn't recall asking for this cache and that he didn't disclose any of this evidence to the electoral commission that investigating the reef up because the text was just don't exist on his phone anymore. well, obviously the opposition is crying foul, but this story really seems to change, minute by minute force. johnson initially said that he actually paid for this revamp, then some time later you said any loans that were related to the downing street refurbishment would of course be declared in due course. but then at the end of last year or the johnson insisted that the u. k is not corrupt,
7:21 pm
i genuinely believe that the u. k is not remotely a corrupt country that i, nor do i believe that our institution are corrupt and, and i think it's very, very important to say that well, this of course isn't the 1st tory party scandal. of course, last year we saw a november investigation found that tory donors had been offered seats in the house of lords than they were. the fleas allegations that many orient pays were having. second, jobs not to mention, of course, december was daft and these downing street christmas party allegations, but in relation to this particular mass for instance, and has indeed been cleared of breaching any ministerial codes, downing street. so that's normal practice for the prime minister to receive project proposal, but many people really question how normal is it to receive conversations about project proposals, while at the very same time, the prime minister is seeking a huge sum of money. we spoke with norman baker,
7:22 pm
a former minister of state of the u. k. home office, and he didn't hold back. he is of the view, the prime minister is the most corrupted leader in modern british history. he's very clearly been trading off the favors in order for my own purposes that his corruption, i very much the independent bodies which will not will not feel any consequence from coming up with a favor and say what they find to be fine is breaking the law breaking the rules and needs to be removed. you know, some of the scandals which are be now been taking place have been for the general public rather all k the distance. but i think public understand very well if one lesson both one, which is the idea that he will have boxes for his friends while telling everybody else they are home and not through the rotors or they every in the country. and
7:23 pm
he's guilty by public opinion on that matter. norris, don't you the 1st by mr. i think who's behaving the way it is despicable and i'm watching aside the standards unsafe dollars. i've been so much part of our democracy. i'm very angry about this. are trying to get the taste in the world and he's touching it. germany is covered, regulations are about to get even tougher under new rules coming in. being fully vaccinated won't be enough to enter bars and restaurants. customers will have to show a negative test or proof of a booster shot. it comes after a spike in the infection rate ortiz policy, or is in berlin. with the latest heard from the german chancellor of salt who agreed with the leaders of the 16 states of germany to impose stricter rules and regulations in an attempt to try and counter the spread of cove at 19, at a press conference that was held on friday here in the capital city of berlin,
7:24 pm
a new regulation has been put in place, particularly for restaurants and bars. now here, as you mentioned, access would only be given to people who have not only had to vaccinations, but in addition, have also had either a booster or a negative taste. so it's no longer enough just to have the head to vaccination. if a person has had that booster, they will then not me to quarantine if they come into contact with a person who does taste positive for covert amongst the other things, there is to be a shortening of the quarantine, the self isolation period. and until now has seen a maximum length of 14 days, it will particularly be shorten for so called critical workers. so this includes your police, your emergency angel, medical staff, the current regulation in terms of the being a maximum of 10 people. when you have a public gathering for people who have been either vaccinated or recovered,
7:25 pm
will continue now the trunk lid to justify these rules and say that it was necessary. if indeed, the country was to have better control of stopping the spread of the infection in future, it comes at the same time that the german health minister has admitted that the biggest problem, problematic area here, is restaurant's way. he says people sit for hours and without any kind of math and not always with social distance thing. meanwhile, early this week, there are more than 20 boys and girls who receive the wrong vaccination. they received a highly concentrated vaccination that was made to be for adults, not for children between ages of $5.00 to $11.00. that happened at a vaccination stand to at this do. now we have heard from doctors who said that they are in constant contact with the parents of the children, and they all know dire consequences. while at the same time moving forward,
7:26 pm
the decision has been made to now have different vaccination centers for children and parents to try and prevent that happening. all of this coming on the back of the ongoing protests here across germany by people who are against the vaccination or who are against any kind of restrictions when it comes to dealing with cove at 19 on thursday night embedded we saw nearly 200 people take to the streets. also the same night we saw hundreds of people take to the street in open house and take a look isn't not left, we're not right. we just want freedom. peace and not someone telling us whether we have to get vaccinated or not. everyone should have freedom of choice, but i feel the measures a disproportionate and i find this division in society. questionable. i want the parties to listen to each other so that we are not constantly divided by this. it's no longer a matter of being vaccinated or not vaccinated. everyone should slowly wake up and
7:27 pm
ask themselves whether all the measures we have been subjected to here for almost 2 years, a justified. now, on monday, evening alone, more than a 100000 people rallied in demonstrations across germany. the government has previously bad rallies, but we see happening now is a lot of an authorized so called walks, where by and large people are protesting peacefully. but sometimes there is an event of violence, or is that is it for me this hour? i will be back in about $32.00 and a half minutes with another full and 1st look tuesday with us r t international. ah, no one else seemed wrong. i just don't know any world is yet to safe out disdain because of the african
7:28 pm
and engagement. it was the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah . okay, forced to chill. tristan's goal is the child didn't wanna do it before. the insurance is a bad though. it was just my william like he's a curriculum, was left the key miss that with a couple of minutes when you was, wasn't it, that the report was praying. that if he's an excuse you machine that i get
7:29 pm
with? no, i mean logical for that amount with image power to store and with match, kaiser's financial survival guide. liquid assets are those that you can convert into cash quite easily. but keep in mind, no, as it's amanda inflation good to watch crime report ah ah ah hello and welcome to cross doctor. all things are considered non purely bil. how
7:30 pm
should we describe our time? what is the zeitgeist, as they say, do we have a sense of direction and purpose? we also hear a lot about the desire to return to normal. what does that mean? now? are we actually living in the new normal? ah, ah, to discuss these issues and more, i'm joined by my guess, lionel in new york, he is a legal in media analyst. and in paris we cross a john laughlin. he is a university lecture in history and political philosophy, a gentleman crosstalk rules and effect. that means you can jump in in time he want, and i always appreciate it. again. let's start out with john. what is our zeitgeist today? because it seems to me we're in a transition in our transistor, dora period right now.
