12:02 pm
west, the west embraces them. this is what happened with the ukrainian qu. many people died there, including at the hands of provocateurs and his crew was approved by the united states and the europeans just accepted that as fact. and no one is going to investigate the my down atrocities. as of brewster, there is a cause, a stir outside rushes for admin. if you hear where the press conference or with brushes, foreign minister sake, a lever wrapped up a few hours ago and it did go on for quite a few hours. because leverage, as you heard, they're pulling no punches over the worse than the, the us in a situated tend situation around ukraine at the moment. and now the presser came at an important time, of course, as regards the situation in ukraine, as talks with nato, and talked to the u. s. in geneva, and in brussels earlier this week, let's you pretty much a dead end. the us not bending on must those demands to provide security, or when guarantees over that situation with ukraine. of course,
12:03 pm
the question on everyone's lips has been whether there will be a so called a invasion in ukraine or by russia. of course, the worst accusing russia and shunting his forces on the border and ukraine as nato expands eastward. russia says it has every right to defend its borders. now that question was raised at the very start of the press conference and we can get circ a lab rose, answer to it right here. american nato seem to have made it very clear. they're not going to, it's a give you the security guarantee. if you don't get the guarantees, you've said that you, ne, that there will be a military response. what does a military response actually mean? could you, could you lay that out? are you ready to use military force to ensure that ukraine never joined major? that's just mccarthy. now only western colleagues gas using tea leaves. they immediately grab the sanctions bass on as we are for everything being decided on
12:04 pm
the basis of mutual respect and a balance of interest is the position of russia presented by nato is based precisely on the balance of interest and is aimed at the security of europe as a whole, including russia, nato wants to create military footholds around the russian federation to dominate urine. and so we're deal now lover, i've also said that even if ukraine isn't dragged in sinay, so as it were, any appearance of nato forces on his borders will be seen as a will constitute a red line. of course, red lines was a buzz words for the geopolitical situation. in the past few months. he said that is not acceptable. russia will not accept that. neither will accept us building military bases or placing a strike missiles anywhere in a sea of as of that. also constitutes a red line. he outlines those red lines in the press conference and we can hear just how they constitute a red line for russia in this graph. here we are good to go teach q u p. m. we
12:05 pm
categorically do not accept the appearance of nato on our borders upland. it's a red line. they know it. even if ukraine remains outside nato, there is still a possibility of ukraine in agreement with the u. s. the u. k. in other western countries that a building military facilities and based on the see of as of there, this is also an acceptable to us with. this is another red line. now the folks over the past week have also said as a marker of the tensions between us and for us, of course, the u. s. are not bending on any of russia's demands. it seems as i also was lucky enough to ask a sec, i love rob about the words of the u. s. secretary of state, anthony lincoln, who said that all president putin has done in the past 2 years or so is a to facilitate what he wanted to present or prevents or rather, and those are kind of strong words from the u. s. i is, oliver said,
12:06 pm
that really isn't the case. said he was surprised at those words by blinking gossip . latasha anthony b. u. s. secretary of state blinking argues that what president putin has done over the past couple of years has only speeded up everything that wouldn't would like to prevent on which basis does blink and make such comments. do you think we present putting putin has been devoting all the last years to strengthen russian sovereignty, which is constantly under attack by the west. those are attacks on all fronts. direct military to terrance information attack, soft power mechanism. and others is a shame that someone thinks that russia is in the pocket of the west. much of what is being said, today's connected with escalating tensions around the russian federation. this, you see that sig, i love raw veggies, press office today, pulling absolutely no punches. as regards the west in nato, he's called out the hypocrisy of nate, so purporting to stand out full human rights. however, than supporting
12:07 pm
a bloody cruise and color revolutions as it were, as regards what happens in ukraine, and instead of calling it acute pulling it in said a diplomatic processor that he also said he said to the west. now since the us, he has written to washington as regards those guarantees on safety and security and so to them now the pool is very much in the u. s. school to find a peaceful resolution to it. all the cia is reported to helping training ukrainian special operations teams amid tensions with russia. the program is believed to have launched 6 years ago. are teased on quarter. can tell us more about the revelations according to a recent yahoo news article. basically, the cia is training, ukrainian, special forces units on american soil, and this is to fight in case of an apparent russian invasion of ukraine. again, we've said many times in this channel. moscow said many times this is basically just nonsense. but nevertheless,
12:08 pm
ukrainian troops are apparently getting some state of the art training from the u. s. government. the program has involve very specific training and skills that would enhance the ukrainians ability to push back against the russians. said the former senior intelligence official, us base ca program has included training and firearms camouflage techniques, land navigation tactics like cover and move intelligence in other areas. yahoo news of course was not specific about the actual names, but it says that 5 former intelligence and national security officials pass this information along to them. apparently these training programs involve camouflage exercises, land navigation exercises and the like. but all the while washington, the saying that these are not offensively oriented exercises, us officials claim that they're just centered around intelligence gathering us officials deny that the ca, training program is war, was ever offensively oriented. but just what intelligence support entails in the
12:09 pm
paramilitary contexts can be ambiguous and how this training will be applied by the ukrainians may change rapidly with facts on the ground. now what is exactly intelligence gathering mean? i mean, well, in the context of power, military operations, we don't really know because we don't know what these ukrainian special forces are going to be doing with the training they've received on american soil in the future . we at least know that the u. s. military advisors were training ukrainians, ukrainian forces, specifically after the events of euro, my don in 2014, but that was all on ukrainian soil. we also, we for marcia. executive said that going back decades, the ca has provided limited training to ukrainian intelligence units to try and shore up, you know, and i suppose it independent kiev and prevent russian subversion as i saw it. but that cooperation specifically was ramped up after the crimea became a part of russia. now we did reach out to the cia and the defense, the defense department of the united states for comments. so of course,
12:10 pm
we'll bring our viewers any response. we get to know the story we're across today as strictly as agreed to delay the deportation of tennis superstar novak brokovich that comes after the countries immigration minister on friday revoked his visa for a 2nd time to day. i exercised my power to cancel the visa held by mister novak joke of h on health and good order grounds on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so. o salia has again revoked the visa of tennessee. the star novak had joked edge at this time on the health and good order grounds. now his lawyers are all ready lodging a pale, isn't it? a late night co tearing australia have agreed not to deport him just yet. if they do go ahead and to port him, of course he will face a 3 year ban on re entering the country. needless to say, it's time is of the essence now is to 3 days until the australian opens starts. therefore jock of inches, sight have said they want the full herrings take place on sunday morning,
12:11 pm
said that the result will be heard by monday morning in time if will good. the joke of each to stop competing in this tournament said there is a glimmer of hope that that has really been nonstop drama since chuck of ich landed on australian soil on the 6th of january. his visa was revoked to upon arrival it few days later, it was then reinstated. but since then, questions have been raised about how he flouted isolation while he was coven positive, and also inaccuracies on his travel full. he's put all of these things down to human error. my agent sincerely apologizes for the administrative mistake and ticking the incorrect box about my previous travel before coming to australia. this was a human error and certainly not deliberate. the whole saga has divided opinion across the world for his fangs. of course, it's a different story this, that just so angry at the unprecedented nature of australia's decision and also so upset that they see the apparent encroachments of politics into sports. we actually
12:12 pm
spoke to a few people, some of novak brokovich, his fellow serbs on the streets of belgrade to get their opinion of all. i am revolted and angry because i did not expect they would treat the world's best tennis player like this. but he did not deserve this, or this is ursula. all what nobody's going through is the frustration of our entire nation disorder. or if they had said from the beginning that only vaccinated people can participate, it would be all right, look. but at one point, they tell him one thing, another time, something else. this is pure politics. the issue here are the principles we live for, at least us european freedom, fraternity equality for you. i think it's fair to say we might also see anger spill out onto the streets of melbourne wants the gang just like it did after his visa was revoked for the 1st time. ah.
12:13 pm
so was next for no joke of h y, which is going to have to wait and see but this just couldn't have come at a worse time for him. this he is australian open represents the pinnacle of his career. if he came out on thought that this australian open, it would mark his 10th consecutive when making him the greatest male tennis star of old times. i'm needless to say, a lot of stake here. nicky are and will the father of the tennessee says slum the treatment of his son by cambra saying exclusively to warranty company attempts to cancel the world. number one's visa was politically motivated. you can tell of into the likelihood of the reading 3 in the rows trillion open jumping, getting to defend his crowd over at r t dot com. jo biden's wake has gone from bad to worse after seeing his plan for mandatory vaccines shall done by the supreme court. the u. s. president was then hoping to change voting rules in the senate and
12:14 pm
pushed through some key bills. but that's been derailed by members of his own party . last cross lived out to ortiz, kill up. i've been in new york, caleb evening to you. take us through the little setback that sure. so in an embarrassing set back for joe biden. now we have a situation where it looks like his voting rights bill, which is pronounced i and intended to extend voting ride throughout the united states may be facing some pretty solid difficulties in the u. s. senate now kirsten semana. the democrat says that she supports jo biden's voting rights bill and she's blasted the other republicans over their opposition to it and some of the voting laws that have been passed around the country. however, ah, she is not willing to change the rules of the u. s. senate in order to pass the bill on, this is what she said. where does this descending spiral of
12:15 pm
division lead? and how can we stop at our countries? divisions have now fueled efforts and several states that will make it more difficult for americans to vote and undermine faith that all american should have in our elections in our democracy. these bills help treat the symptoms of the disease, but they do not fully entrust the disease itself. and while i continue to support these bills, i will not support separate actions that were sent the underlying disease of division infecting our country. now this refers to the filibuster now, the filibuster is a legal technique used in the u. s. senate through which debates and the continued extension of debate can prevent a bill from being passed out, that the opposition may not have the majority of the votes to vote down a bill, but they continue to keep the debate going. they continue speaking and they hold
12:16 pm
off the process and they prevent a bill from passing. and it's been used throughout u. s. history by both democrats and republicans to defeat legislation that might have a majority of support in the u. s. senate. but there is opposition to it among the opposite party and it takes a large number of votes. it takes a pretty solid majority to change the senate rules in order to prevent this bill from passing. so with kirsten savanna stepping up and saying that she doesn't, she basically isn't willing to, to change the senate rules and prevent a republican filibuster. we now have joe biden, conceding defeat on the issue. this is joe biden. the honest to god answers, i don't know whether we can get this done as long as i'm in the white house wrong, as i'm engaged at all, i'm going to be 40 to change the way these legislatures have moved. now it's interesting to note that joe biden himself in the past, has spoken up
12:17 pm
a against removing the power to filibuster i, when democrats were the opposition party. at many times, democrats spoke up and insisted that the filibuster was an important shack on the balance. and of power of a majority in the u. s. senate. now, joe biden, i doubt now at this point, does seem to be taking the opposite position. let's review this nuclear option is ultimately an example of the arrogance of power. it is a fundamental power grab by a majority party. now, prominent democrat, stacy abrams has announced that she will not be attending joe biden's upcoming voting rights speech in her home state of georgia. that is seen as a very important political move. this point to have a prominent democrat boycotting the president's speech. that seems to indicate that there is a big division in the democratic party. take a listen. politicians don't show up with presidents when their approval ratings may
12:18 pm
be in the thirty's in the state. whether or not now, joe biden's approval ratings continued to drop. he is quite an unpopular president in the united states. now it seems that even within his own party, we have folks trying to undermine his agenda. he's becoming less popular. we have democratic party figures trying to distance themselves from him. jo biden's, entrance into the white house, promising to rescue the country from disasters and problems he blamed on donald trump. hasn't seemed to have panned out and he becomes more and more unpopular each day. thanks very much for taking us through all about ortiz, kill us up and in new york city. and speaking of joe biden, america's in the grip of a supply chain crisis with supermarket is running out of goods. but the presidents age all is fine, not story ahead few afternoon. ah
12:19 pm
ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah ah, ah, it join me every 1st on the alex simon sure. when i'll be speaking the guess in the world politics sport, business,
12:20 pm
i'm show business. i'll see you then ah, 20 minutes into the program. welcome back. american consumers are feeling the pain with inflation at its highest in a generation supermarket shelves, they're emptying out as well as co bid disrupt supply chains. president biden, and says it all part of a global problem, but republicans and many other opponents to our pointing the finger squirrely at his administration. under joe biden. everything costs more store shelves are empty, and small businesses are struggling to hire workers and stay open. this trend is in transitory and it's all happening under democrats. one party control disgruntled shoppers are also blaming the president, posting images of empty supermarket isles,
12:21 pm
under the hashtag, burris shelves. biden. the american leader recently claimed supply chain problems had actually been solved. so our colleagues at our tea america went to take a look for themselves from in downtown washington. the area that we're finding with shelves are empty of beef, chicken, eggs, fruit and vegetables. even non perishable items, difficult to find in some grocery stores. now in a normal year, 5 to 10 percent of food items may be unavailable. today, nearly 15 percent are out of stock. that according to jeff freeman, president and ceo of the consumer brands association and officials say things may not get better for the next 12 to 18 months. now there are many reasons for this, including an increased demand for groceries with families choosing to eat at home during the omicron serge. as we saw here in dc metro area last week,
12:22 pm
winter storms have effected major interstate. and a shortage of as many as $80000.00 truck drivers are out nationwide. that's a historic high, according to the american trucking association. and because of this export say to expect price hikes and food shortage is similar to what we saw in 2020. now here's what you're seeing. as a result on tuesday, wal mart kroger, and albert's in stocks did albertson's, taking the biggest, indicating a trend among major grocers being affected by those supply chain issues. also, these trips to the grocery store are costing shoppers even more with inflation rates soaring to 7 percent for the 1st time and for decades now, with the united states seeing more than 700000 cases of coven 19 per day, on average during the so microns surge, it's slowing down, food manufacturers and causing grocery store workers to call out sick. and we heard reports from companies talking about. they had more positive tests in the past weeks when they had in all of 2020. those wasn't text tests are taking people off
12:23 pm
the front lines. it's forcing companies to shut down manufacturing lines preemptively. and it's leading to just simply not enough supply. experts say that things may not return to normal until staffing levels are restored. this pandemic let's up in the global food distribution network is restore our team because paxton boyd will staying state side with the all may chrome. busy strain sweeping america, fewer people are donating blood. there's been such a decline that the countries redcross us the 3rd. it's 1st ever blood crisis. it say's there is no less than one day supply. we spoke to one of their specialists in washington about the issue. red cross supplies, 40 percent of the nation's blood, and we typically strive to keep a 5 day blood supply on hand at all times what we've been experiencing as it relates to this current blur crisis is that we've had less than
12:24 pm
a one day supply of critical blood products in recent weeks. so that's what distinguishes this particular blood shortage in terms of a capacity, blood cannot be, may factored, or start out every 2 seconds. some wine in the with needs blurt m, as doctors are being forced to make difficult decisions about who receives transfusions and who will need to wait until more products become available. so calvin is definitely a factor in terms of the blood supply. and as we're seeing a 3rd in co but 19 variants, that impacts the ability for donors to be able to give as you have to be feeling well and, and of course not symptomatic. this situation will continue to become more dire and ongoing. and it will impact patient care tremendously.
12:25 pm
now, the u. n. world food program is warning of a quote soon, army of hunger in afghanistan, half of the population has been struggling to obtain food this winter. and the situation is seemingly being made worse by selections. things have gotten so bad for some they're resorting to selling their own organs. i scan, ma'am, $2300.00 equals the price of the kidney or how long that will feed a family. his unclear i couldn't go out and beg for money. i was not able to bake. well then i decided to go to the hospital and sell my kidney. so i could at least feed my children or some time a lot of welcome to modern afghanistan with the organ trade is flourishing. amidst a dire economic crisis, 99 percent of the don't is selling kidneys of the people encountering economic problems and only one percent of donors of the ones who donate that kidney to
12:26 pm
a family member. it needed to most donors come from poor families and may not be aware of the consequences. plus the deaths won't go away by themselves. most of people leave the country, fearing for their lives, but some also leave in search of jobs. and when those people cannot make it to other countries, they come back home and they have to pay the money they had borrowed for their travel calls. and to do that, they sell their household belongings or sell their kidneys, and some people even decide to sell their children just passed off for the shark. the chaotic us nato withdrawal and the taliban take over, pushed afghanistan into financial chaos. subsequently aggravated when the west froze afghan assets abroad. and when foreign funding was suspended, the un is now launching a $5000000000.00 a de payable. this is a stop get an absolutely essential stock up of measure that we are putting in front
