8:00 am
i a, i was told headlines or whatnot. the international moscow slammed washington for alleging rushes, preparing a full flag operation to justify it's supposed to ukraine invasion. but on the program i guess to size up the chances of that of a military conflict need. so and so come in, it's always going to least tensions we have here. you credit the plans of the new south 5 minutes from moscow. the question is, how do you, how do you deal with a bully? also a massive chemical fi in passaic, new jersey is sending large plumes and potentially dangerous smoke into the air. and now could be in the direction heading the way of the big apple, new york. and the leader of the indigenous extra showing the nation tells off the about the devastating impact of nuclear bomb test on land belonging to native
8:01 am
americans. so even alleging the aim was to eliminate his people and these things were conducted without our knowledge. and under a culture of secrecy, of the united states, and there in is the intent to commit genocide. and the law group uses to us states of racism, issuing guidelines that are recommended. prioritizing non white cove and treatment with the or saturday stories from all around the world is ality international. it's good of you to join us with this program. so moscow has slammed us allegations that of russia is preparing a false flag operation in ukraine. american media and officials claim moscow has pre positioned a group of separate tours who will create a pretext for invasion loading and my colleagues niel harvey and nicky. aaron
8:02 am
discussed what the russian embassy in the u. s. has branded as washington's old tricks. such rhetoric confirms there is an ongoing information campaign being waged against russia. we see the same scenario being repeated again and again. first, some sensational story is dropped and makes the headlines, and then it becomes a key talking point. such boats claims, say coming from the us there. and the only intelligence on offer are these elusive source is the allegations were fetch reported by cnn and swiftly echoed by ukrainian and u. s. officials. we have information that indicates rush has already pre positioned a group of operatives to conduct a false flag operation in eastern ukraine. the operatives are trained and urban warfare and in using explosives to carry out acts of sabotage against russia's own proxy forces. and the russian military plans to begin these activities several weeks before military invasion, which could begin between mid january and mid february. so not the time frame mentioned that between mid january and mid february,
8:03 am
the claims are the president. putin's window for invasion is dictated by temperatures. basically he needs a layer of ice on the ground so that he's heavy hardware like tanks can roll across the border right now is too mild for an invasion by march. it would be too muddy. so apparently president biden as allegedly hide meteorologists to, you know, give them a full cost basically about when this invasion might take place. now, how seriously people are a taken these claims week, which i don't know, but the old familiar headlines. russia plans and invasion of ukraine in fights, russia, planning and invasion of anywhere has become so common, especially over the past year. in spring 2021. we saw the headline screaming putin threatens war again. that software, they started military drills on the board that they were more warnings and december with both the west and ukraine. so certain that the invasion would take place in december. and yet here we are still no invasion, so we're still coming from both sides. of course, you know,
8:04 am
it's like any story that we have a cover here in the news. you can look at it from, from both perspectives and one can look aggressive. one could look defense it, which is what russia says it is, you know, what troops are on our territory from the outside though. the accusation is this is basically a massing of troops ready for him. an invasion. how was moscow defended its position on those? how's it tried to kind of calm what seemed to be growing concerns from, from the wider community? moscow has it repeatedly talked about, hit its red lines. those being the further eastward expansion of nato l. the deployment of nato bay says right at the border with russia. we've just concluded that week long talks that diplomacy talks between nato and russia. no progress has been made. ne, so is unwilling to compromise. it's that it won't provide any assurances to russia on any of these points and even taunting rusher as well in a way by saying, well, ukraine is going to join nato. it's a done deal. it's just a matter of when i reason report not bring angry in any sense of security or piece
8:05 am
to russia off the yahoo investigation found that the cia is secretly training ukrainian special locks on american solan has been doing so since 2015 the program has involve very specific training on skills that would enhance the ukrainians ability to push back against the russians, said the former senior intelligence official, the u. s. bay cia program has included training and firearms, camouflaged, leaks. lon, navigation tactics like cover and move intelligence and other areas. a washington has reported it claimed it solely aimed at defense. the given the nature of the training that the 20 are questions arising, which we have already addressed to the us, will thirty's ourselves, all in all for the russian position on all the developments. the russian foreign minister, i love ravi held his annual press conference yesterday and in answering all the questions there are really including on the western phase of an invasion. good. let's just go through news now. as soon as our western colleagues guess by reading
8:06 am
tea leaves, they immediately grab the sanctions, baton. we are for everything being decided on the basis of mutual respect and the balance of interests. the position of russia presented to nato is based precisely on the balance of interests and is aimed at the security of europe as a whole, including russia, as in while nature wants to create military footholds around the russian federation to dominate europe. russia has never and nowhere threatened the ukrainian people and kia, makes direct threats to us. so a week ago, as nato in russian delegates prepared to embark on days of talks, expectations were already low for a positive outcome. now we can see a week's worth of diplomacy is clearly failed with the situation now feeling so much more tense than it was before. earlier our guests chewed over whether the current tensions really do have the potential to escalate into a full scale war. whatever the rights and wrongs of the situation, but damage to europeans curacy, not me. the risk of war, which itself is huge,
8:07 am
but also the capability of the states to cooperate, to tackle the existential risks. but faced the world, how can people see negotiation blast around climate change when they're about to go to war against each other? we should also remember something else. georgia did launch a war with russia, you know, and it was backed up by america. and britain essentially didn't know to intervene and we have seen in recent weeks in the black sea, american, british and french warships involve the naval movers and going both to ukraine and to georgia. that would seem to me quite provocative in the current situation of american and british american ships entering as well. russia now, what russia waters that is a major propagation. well, if you think about the iraq war and the excuse, iraq will be in the southern hussein of missiles potentially 45 minutes from london . we have here in creating the plan to be miss out 5 minutes from moscow,
8:08 am
7 minutes from russian strategic nuclear defense is in effect. russia will have a knife to throw and not enough time to recover if it allows these in russia. we'll have to stop those missiles coming in. this is the cuban missile crisis, so they could end differently from that one. if we don't look at this very carefully, the other of this is the idea that ukraine, if nato wanted to, part of nato actually became involved nato because that was in effect. and you crying and the ability to launch an international wall on the hall with an interest and ok, kevin, who teaches are completely irresponsible on this question. so that would be another, might move in my strategy coming from a jo biden's administration. i think if there's anything positive that has come out of this crisis, it is the west will recognize that it can't get away scott free by bring you crying
8:09 am
in tonight. it would be awfully hard for them to do so i need someone. so comment was always going to weeks to tensions one sure natal course is in the baltic states, one or forces in point to check like elsewhere, the positive in georgia in the black sea. once you have that revised russian feels . and as i say, you don't ban of why do appears in to understand what those fears given russian's most recent history, given what happened in the 2nd world war, i'm just going to say it's clear that there is a process of regime change across the world wherever there is a guy who's we don't fit with the neo liberal law, denila florida, which is control the same story by the united states, the guy, eccentric, etc, etc. who will always bring down any government or trying to bring down any government which doesn't correspond to those interests or don't disagree with chris is saying. but i also think, but we need to feel about just sliding into just a confrontational approach towards these sorts of interest. and, and,
8:10 am
and development because because they, because they are incredibly powerful and the big question, the, all of us, whether we off commentators in the west or the russian government or anybody else is how do you, how do you deal with a bully and the way of dealing with the bully is not just to face up to them and, and then get smashed in you, you have to deal with it very cleverly and you have to try and build relationships and positive connection. i'm the way in which creates him managed to do that in the past with england and some other european government who's limited success has been to be valuable. and important thing that is vitally important for the future of the planet is that russia is included in a new security architecture. you can have a new, secure wave in an old one with russia labeled as the enemy, with the ukraine matching office is close to russian border as it can without any
8:11 am
commentary from the west, the media and nature. politicians are learned to russia as the enemies. you cannot have stability to the russia, of course, the sees itself as the victim aware. this is hating it has to be included in security architecture, otherwise there's no security, but anybody. meanwhile, the foreign affairs chief joseph bow row has said the fate of a key russian gas pipeline to europe could depend on what happens over you can crane will have more in that story just a bit later in this program. but for now, a massive chemical fire in passaic new jersey is still sending plumes to potentially dangerous smoke into the air. this 155 has been injured. residents were evacuated from the immediate area of the blaze as wellness down 200 firefighters continue to battle the fire. now as all of a 7 am to 5 was not completely under control, but was contained according to a local man. i also told residents to stay away from the area and keeping doors windows closed. it's unclear at this point. we started the fire large quantities of
8:12 am
chlorine pad. it's stored at the side of the blaze, hence the concern over that of 6 months. this is one of the videos that has emerged a per se, because a city of around 70000 people is located roughly 12 miles from new york city. and a new york city emergency management says residents might see or smell smoke from the fire. and that just about wraps up the update on this, but we will keep you updated on this developing story here or nazi. so for years the u. s. did conduct nuclear tests on land that was populated by native americans and r t caught up with the current head of the western shoshone tribe. he told us, one of the many consequences was the impact on people's health. the most bond nation, us the label claimed by the shoshone native american tribe, as their sacred lamb turned into a u. s. nuclear weapons testing site. and these things were conducted without our
8:13 am
knowledge and under a culture of secrecy, of the united states. and therein is the intent to commit genocide because these things were developed without our consent. the weapons are tested upon us and there are test series with specific goals to expose humans to radiation. and we are the victims of that. it all started with the 1863 treaty a ruby valley, when the western shoshone handed certain rights to the us, but did not see the land. these and friendships shall be hereafter established and maintained between the western bands of the shoshone nation and the people and governments of the united states and the said ban, stipulate and agree that has duties and all depredations shall cease from 1951 to 1990 to the u. s. conducted 928. tests that 828 underground nuclear tests and 100 atmospheric this resulted in fall out of around 620 killer
8:14 am
tons. the comparison hiroshi mom only had 15 killer tons in 1945. all that had devastating effects on tribal residents who began from investigating health consequences from exposure to radiation to try to understand what had happened to us. we had a significantly higher exposure to the radiation that led to those health consequences such as cancer's leukemias, auto immune deficiencies. and what we began to understand is that there is a wide variety of illnesses, really strange illnesses known to be plausible from exposure to radiation. but we weren't getting any help. we were not getting any support. he says these shoshone never agreed to nuclear weapon testing. the finding justice is a tough road. this d, shoshone people are on their road. so we really need to continue to investigate and understand this, but we're not getting any help from the united states. they're not investigating
8:15 am
this because they're the perpetrators club, these of acts which are destroying the shoshone people. disgustingly shameful that us politicians, the president and the court. they don't talk about these issues. what we began to understand is that we're experiencing a after wave of assault. i feel that this is what nazis did in world war 2. well, the i nuclear fest just one of a number of hardships the western shoshone had to endure. you can hear about the others. watch the interview in full with their leader at r t dot com. well, plenty more still to come in the program here on a saturday afternoon live from moscow. the u. k. government's use of a v i. p lane to award contracts for personal protective equipment, a to companies now being rolled on that story and much more. we're back in just in
8:16 am
what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy foundation, let it be an arms race is on offense. very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical time time to sit down and talk with ah, ah
8:17 am
ah ah, ah ah, just out that i stories here one r t international. so the fate of a key russian gas pipeline to europe still hangs in the balance does by construction of nor stream to being completed last year. it's still not been given the final go ahead by the e. u and the blocks foreign affairs chief, joseph burrell, says that could now depend on moscow, deescalate intentions on ukraine's border. permission, suitability to whose cannot be met someone lives an infrastructure, according with reduced for the rules. we high in a free market economy and certainly if functioning august 1st,
8:18 am
we'd also depend on the development of the events and ukraine and actually due to a russian, you cannot imagine that we are thinking one side on boarding sanctions just in case and on the other hand to over and infrastructure. meanwhile, in the us republican senator ted cruz made his own bit to stop the pipeline. this week, he put forward a bill to sanction businesses involved in the project if russia invites ukraine. however, the senate voted against the move on thursday. although the democrats have now put forward an alternative which would target key russian officials instead, well, in the meantime, sky rocketing energy prices continue to be a major concern in europe. on wednesday, the swedish government said it would have located almost $700000000.00 in order to help citizens. while those hit hardest by the surging prices could, could actually get up to $220.00 every month to help out over the winter.
8:19 am
electricity costs in the country are up more than 250 percent compared to last year . well, let's get some expert analysis on this right now with joining us live on the program today. great to see you. thanks for joining us here on the international. the final fate of the node stream to gas pipeline. it's still hangs in the balance. which way do you think it's going to swing? i think it will swing into the eventually of course, the pipe and will be used. there's no question about that. these are all games in before that the main park mouse or negotiation park us, which is just the us and russia and all the others are neglectful in this matter. are trying to get a big deal out of it. the americans want the expansion of that territory pro nato to the board. busy of russia and the russians of course, don't want this and they can't afford this to do this. so they try to put the
8:20 am
pipeline or the connection of the pipeline into the negotiate negotiation part. but in the end, everybody knows that the pipeline will be used because it's not only useful, it's essential for germany's and europe's energy supply, especially with the energy change that the german politics wants to do this. to him, i wanted to ask you, what is all the hysteria about? i think most people don't understand us. since 2009, there are 12, russian gas pipelines that feed into europe. let's say that one more time. there are 12, russian gas pipelines that feed into europe have been doing so for the past 1112 years, no stream to would be number 13. why the hysteria over just another gas pipeline? well, this is pretty easy if you know the background information on this you know,
8:21 am
the by the family takes a huge bunch of commissions from leave letting but guess. busy or using the gas pipelines that go via ukraine and poland. the polish people have the vital interest to blackmail germany and keep on the huge, huge amounts of european transfer payments to poland, which is the biggest gainer of, of european benefits at the minute by black mailing germany with a gas because it has been transferred through poland the 1000 pipelines are not sufficient to supply all germany with with gas, which is the problem. then we have the next. busy problem that the u. s. government is run by a black rock and the military industrial complex and black rock wants to sell the u . s. natural gas and black rock heavily invested into some of the other pipelines like the saudi arabian pipeline network. and some of the other pipelines going from
8:22 am
kata. and so i'm, so it sounds like what you're describing here though is sort of jump in what you're describing. sounds like big business rules the day. it's not what you, what, that's what you're saying. yes, it is. exactly, that's what i'm say, the big business ruling the day and they don't care at all on the, on the necessary piece of the german population of the russian public of the, your asian population. they don't care at all. they want to make big money and they don't even what risk a war. they don't care. they think in the u. s. they are far away from everything where something happens for a few bucks. they would even sell their grandma. so you think the notion to pipeline is eventually going to start flowing and it will be accepted and it's just going to be the 13th russian gas pipeline feeding europe. you think at the end of the day it will go ahead. yes, there is no question about this. the question for the u. s. is now whether the
8:23 am
pipeline would work in the end of the day with germany pulling away from the u. s. and going towards the european countries or whether the u. s. can still keep the lid on the germans. and this is the big question now. that's why they try to negotiate somehow with nature. it's a big game for the u. s. and i not sure whether they lose everything in the end. mister my last question running very low on time. hey, thanks for your patience. just quickly turning to the situation in sweden, we've just been reporting on where electricity prices are up more than 250 percent . you think no stream to can help to actually bring a bit of stability to the energy market. of course is bring step would bring stability into the market. but this would be dramatic for black rock and there are nice. but of course, no stream try would not stream to would be able to get enough enough supplies, that all the speculators would be caught on the wrong foot and sell their,
8:24 am
their positions again. so yes, it would probably even go very quickly to, to decrease the prices again that the, the european and the swedish citizens don't have to suffer so much economist i can . how about joining us live on the saturday afternoon here? when are you into national a great pleasure. thank you very much for that. thank you very much. do. thank you . well, the scandal, my a u. k. government is now fending off fresh corruption claims after the countries high court ruled that a so called v i. p lane for awarding contracts for p, p e was on lawful ministers gave to companies an unfair advantage. during the 1st wave of the kobe crisis, the claimant have established that the operation of the high priority lane was in breach of the obligation of equal treatment. the illegality is marked by this judgment in a rush to supply the and a chest, the government board, 32000000000 p. p items costing over 18000000000 pounds. and normal times
8:25 am
transparency rules are in place for state contracts to ensure fair competition. but in the hands of a national emergency, these rules were cast aside. instead, the r p lanes are reserved for referrals from an peas and ministers, and senior officials and billions of taxpayer cache signed over. well, danny street is considering an appeal against the ruling that some of these behind closed doors dealings were illegal. o contracts underwent sufficient financial and technical due diligence and the court found that we did not rely on the referral to the high priority lane when awarding contracts. this isn't the 1st time the courts have ruled against the government over p p contracts. but number 10 has been consistent, that it hasn't acted inappropriately. kind of a prime ester give a cost on assurance that from now on from now on, all government contracts will be subject to proper process with full transparency and accountability. absolutely, it's
8:26 am
a huge one. these are pretty sure i reject the idea that somehow the government acted in a way that was wrong. we wanted to get the 32000000000 pieces of p b in the front line because what was important is to save lives. i make no apologies that the government did everything in its power to ensure the n h s. and frontline workers did not run out of p p, even though the judge ruled both the off was in question, were likely to win contracts anyway. if you went through the high priority lane, you had a one in 10 chance of being successful. those outside of that in a circle had way less than a one in a 100 chance. according to the national audit office, 50 firms benefited 1800 tory links, which the opposition, se screams cronyism. while our hard working n h s staff were going without p, p, tory politicians, saw an opportunity to line their cronies pockets. a judge has now ruled that v i p
8:27 am
lane unlawful, but that may be just the tip of the iceberg. well, only where some company is given an unfair advantage. the prices were hyped up, in some cases by 200 percent. when the equipment arrived. some of it failed to meet basic medical standards. so did the government treats a public health crisis as an opportunity to both the pockets of pals at the public expense? this very like crazy. i mean it, cause you have to do with things quickly. so there's, there's no reason why having to v i p lane. actually many things could be dealt with more quickly. it just meant to people go preferential treatment. i think that shows history, god for use of taxpayer money, and disregard to the safety of front line health and cast off at the beginning of the pandemic demand for p. p. far out, strip supply to keep up. normal procurement rules were relaxed,
8:28 am
but all this feeds into the idea that if you have the prime minister number on your phone, your numbers in your bank account will grow and it's free lateral flow tax. the to be potentially phased out, is public health. simply becoming a commodity, more russian to peacekeepers of return to home after completing that mission in kazakhstan, this defense ministry video shows the playing the, brought them back. the 17 other flights also left context on, on saturday. the russian contingent was in kazakhstan as part of the c s t o military blocks mission. that assistance was requested by the contact president as deadly on rest was sweeping the country peacekeepers from belarus. tajikistan, tristan and armenia will all taken part. as we understand the situation in the country is now stable. with the address at some use just in here at auto international south pacific nations, including australia are on a lot offer. a su nami hit the small island nation of tonga. it was actually caused
8:29 am
by an underwater volcano eruption. so we can show you video right here as we posted on social media. it's unclear what the extent of the damage is right now. so far, no reports of any casualties at the epicenter of the eruption was just 65 kilometers from august capital. it was so strong, it was heard on fiji, 800 kilometers away. now more videos are more pictures on ortiz, you tube channels, or wrapping out the program for this hour here. one ot international ha possible saturday afternoon here at moscow. thanks for joining us on rural re sushi. more news at the top of the hour. ah
8:30 am
july, an annual festival in st. petersburg dedicated to dust i ascii. ah, the great writer, a thinker and psychologist, people often tend to his work to understand russia and russians, perhaps even themselves. they put a single movie to see what they think about the matting vehicle and he said, why do you need that? changing a rita transforming them as they read? that's a dust i asked is unique ability to stay ascii wants to tell us, you can better yourself. he makes you face your true self. why? we keep man beyond conventions, rules of schemes, beyond boundaries and time. dostoevsky is a global brand whose classics as everyone knows, i'm never out of style. i.
