9:00 am
were with the saying, the demise of gold as a monetary di monetization take place. ah, this, our top headlines here on our tea. moscow slams washington for alleging russia is preparing a full flag operation to justify its suppose a ukraine invasion plans in the program august size up with the chances of a true military conflict. so common was always going to least tensions we have here in creating the plans of the missiles, 5 minutes from moscow. and a big question is, how do you, how do you deal with it? also a massive chemical fire in passaic, new jersey is still sending large plumes of potentially dangerous smoke in the air . it's also heading in the direction of nearby new york city. the leader of the indigenous shoshone nation tells all to you about the devastating impact of nuclear
9:01 am
bomb tests on land belonging to native americans even alleged, 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 their in is the intent to commit genocide with our broadcasting live and a 100 countries worldwide salty international welcome to your se moscow has slammed a us allegations that have rushes 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 innovation. aaliyah, my colleagues niel javion nikki, aron discuss 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
9:02 am
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, both claims i coming from the u. s. 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, the claims are the president. putin's window for invasion is dictated by temperatures. basically, he needs a, a layer of ice on the ground so that he's heavy hardware like tanks can roll across
9:03 am
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 a taken these claims week, which i don't know, but the old familiar headlines, russia plans and invasion of ukraine. in fact, russia planning and invasion of anywhere has become so common, especially over the policy in spring 2021. we saw the headline screaming putin threatens war again, that software that they started, military drills on the boards. they were more warnings in 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, it's like any story that we have a cover here in the news. you can look at it from, from both perspectives and won't, can look aggressive. one could look defense it, which is what russia says it is,
9:04 am
you know what trips 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 talks about hit it's 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 nay. so is unwilling to compromise. it's that it won't provide any assurances to russia on any of these points and even taunting russia 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 a recent reports not bring, it ain't bringing any sense of security or piece to russia off the a yahoo investigation found that the cia is secretly training ukrainian special ops
9:05 am
on american soul and has been doing so since 2015. the program is involved 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, he claimed it solely aimed at defense. the given the nature of the training in the plenty of questions arising which we have already addressed to the u. s. will thirty's ourselves, all in over the russian position on all the developments the russian foreign minister say 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 look a few news now. as soon as our western colleagues guess by reading tea leaves, they immediately grab the sanctions, baton or we are for everything being decided on the basis of mutual respect and the
9:06 am
balance of interests. school, the position of russia presented to nato is based precisely on the balance of interests and his aim to the security of europe as a whole, including russia, as a new one later 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 and russian delegates prepared to embark on days of talks, expectations were already low for a positive outcome. now we can see a weeks worth of diplomacy is clearly failed with the situation now feeling so much more tense than it was before. earlier our guests had a pretty heated debate 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 european security. not any the risk of war which itself is huge. but also the capability of these states to cooperate,
9:07 am
to tackle the existential risks facing the world. how can people seriously negotiating blaster 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 situations of american and british american ships answering as well. russia now what russia waters that is a major publication. well, if you think about the iraq war and the excuse, iraq will be in the senate who say that we saw potentially 45 minutes from london. we have here in creating the plan to be miss out 5 minutes from moscow, 7 minutes from russian strategic nuclear defense in ethics. russia will have
9:08 am
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 they try to wanted to part of nato actually became involved later. because that would, in effect and you crane ability to launch an international war. on the always i'm have an interest and ok, kevin, who teaches are completely irresponsible on this question. so that would be another might move in this strategy coming from a jo biden's administration. i think if there's anything positive that has come out of this crisis, it is that the west will recognize that it can't get away scott free by bring you crying in tonight. it would be awfully hard for them to say so. and
9:09 am
so it was always going to weeks to tensions one sure natal course is in the baltic states once you update, of course is important to check that back elsewhere the positive in georgia in the black sea. once you have that revised russian fields. and as i say, you don't find a bladder piece in to understand what those fields 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 don't fit with the neo liberal law. denila lloyd, 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 civil 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 interests and, and, and development. because because they, because they are incredibly powerful. and the big question, the all of us,
9:10 am
whether we are commentators in the west or the russian government or any for now 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 managed to do that in the past with england colon from other european government to some limited success has been to be valuable. an important thing that is viable, 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 supposed to russian border as it can without any commentary from the western media and nature, politicians, referring to russia as the enemies. you cannot have stability to the russia. of
9:11 am
course, the sees itself as the victim aware this is heading. it has to be included in security architecture, otherwise there's no security. but anybody. meanwhile, the e u foreign affairs chief, joseph burrell, has said to the fate of a key russian gas pipeline to europe could. and on what happens over you can crane more of that story plus analysis a bit later in the program in for now, i want you to national a massive fire has erupt at a chemical plant in passaic, new jersey, leading to worries about the quality of the air and the region is 155. it has been injured at the blaze. it started on friday evening. bye bye. as continue to battle, the flames throughout the night. and as of 7 am to 5, was not completely under control, but was contained, according to our local mayor. locals were told to stay away from the area remaining and doors with windows closed. some clear what caused the fire. large quantities or
9:12 am
flooring, pallets are stored in sight, hence the concern over top 6 smoke. we can show you one of the videos of the fire that's being posted online, per se, because a city of around 70000 people is located just 12 miles from new york city. and the city is, authority is a wall and people that they might be able to see or smell smoke from the fire, but that's about it will keep you updated on this developing situation here on asi and so for years the us did conduct nuclear tests on land that was populated by native americans, we 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 bombs nation us. the label claimed by the shoshone native american tribe, as they sacred land turned into a u. s. nuclear weapons testing site. and these things were conducted without our knowledge and under a culture of secrecy, of the united states. and there again is the intent to commit genocide because
9:13 am
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 of 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 the greed that hostilities 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 full outs of around 620 kelton's the comparison. hiroshi mom only had 15 killer tons in 1945. all that had
9:14 am
devastating effects on tribal residents who began from investigate 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's a wide variety of illnesses really strange illness is 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 weapons. testing, finding justice is a tough road. 60 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 this because they're the perpetrators of. busy these of acts which are destroying
9:15 am
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 we've assault. i feel that this is what nazis did in world war 2. well, the i nuclear tests just as well. one of a number of hardships the western shoshone people have to endure. you can hear about the others. if you death. what's the full interview on line with a leader at r t dot com? so the fate of a key russian gas pipeline to europe still hangs in the balance despite construction of no 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 depend on moscow, deescalate intentions on ukraine's border. this is
9:16 am
cannot be that someone leaves an infrastructure, according it is a forwarding with rules. we have enough free market economy and certainly funding for us to have to. we'd also the pin number, the development of events and ukraine, and actually to, to russian. you cannot imagine that we are thinking one side on posing sanctions, just in case and on the infrastructure. meanwhile, in the u. s. republican senator ted cruz made his own bid to stop the pipeline. this week. he put forward to build a sanction businesses involved in the project if russia invades ukraine. however, the senate voted against the move on thursday. although the democrats have not put forward an alternative which would target key russian officials instead. meanwhile, skyrocketing energy prices continue to be a major concern in europe. on wednesday, the swedish government said it would allocate almost $700000000.00 in order to help
9:17 am
citizens. those hit hardest by the surging prices could get up to $220.00 a month to help out over the winter electricity costs in the country. we're up more than 250 percent compared to last year when it comes to the fate in the future of no stream to. i spoke about it a short time ago with economist. i have a he of course the pipe and will be used. there's no question about that. these are all games before that the main park now are negotiation par class, 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. everybody knows that the pipeline will be used because it's not only useful, it's essential for germany and europe's energy supply. the big business ruling the day. and they don't care at all on the,
9:18 am
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 risk a wark the scandal, my u. k. government is now offending off fresh corruption claims after the countries high court rule that are so called v i. p lane for awarding contracts for p, p e was unlawful. administers gave to companies an unfair advantage during the 1st wave of cove it 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 that the government for 32000000000 p. p items costing over 18000000 pounds . in normal times transparency rules are in place, the state contracts to ensure fair competition. but in the hands of a national emergency room for cost aside, instead,
9:19 am
the i p lanes are reserved for referrals from m. p. 's ministers in senior officials and millions of taxpayers cash 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. can the prime is to 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 a huge one. he's a p p a. i reject the idea that somehow the government acted in a way that was wrong. we wanted to get the 32000000000 pieces of p,
9:20 am
p 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 war both the offers 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. the judge has now ruled that v i p lane unlawful, but that may be just the tip of the iceberg. well, only where some companies give it an honest our advantage. the prices were heights
9:21 am
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 impose the pockets of pals at the public's expense? very like crazy. i mean, of course you have to do with things quickly there's, there's no reason why having to v i p lane. actually many things could be dealt with more quickly. it just monitor and people go preferential treatment. i think that shows history. god for use of taxpayers, money, and disregard to the safety of front line health and cast off at the beginning of the pandemic demand for p. far out, strict supply to keep up. normal procurement rules were relaxed. 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 tasa to be
9:22 am
potentially phased out, is public health simply becoming a commodity. the u. s. the state of utah's being accused of having racist policies for giving so called a priority points to non whites when it comes to eligibility for coping treatment. the state of minnesota had similar guidelines, but it's not removed advice to take race into account of both states have been threatened with legal action using a patient, skin, color, or ethnicity rather than the unique and specific medical circumstances of an individual patient as a basis for deciding you should obtain lifesaving medical treatment is a part in a ton of crisis. tough decision sat of you maids, sometimes decisions of life and death. the covert pandemic is one such time and who to prioritize for life saving medical treatment is a decision. health workers have to make. now you may think the choices are taken based on greatest health risk or the needs of the patient. perhaps their age,
9:23 am
your fragility, their co morbidities and chronic illnesses. race may be the last thing on your mind . apparently, you may be wrong, think your liver or kidney disease is a high risk. think again, your heart problem or neurological illness will only lads you one points on this scale. so will your shortness of breath. but you could get double points based on your ethnic background. the you saw department of health explained the system using statistics which show people of non white or hispanic ethnicity are 35 to 50 percent more likely to be hospitalized non white patients. which means at 1st, the system does sound logical and truly studies have shown ethnic minorities both in the united states and some other countries have been at this proportionately affected by coven, the reasons multiple and complex, but the analysis goes deeper, while more people in ethic, minority communities may be diagnosed there appear to be no differences in final
9:24 am
health outcomes. and critics say there for no reason to prioritize treatment. the risk of sars cove e t diagnosis was higher in most ethnic minorities. but once hospitalized, no clear inequality is exist in cove at 19 outcomes. the findings highlight the necessity to tackle disparities in social determinants of health. preventative opportunities and in house case across the ocean in the u. k. statistics have shown a civil, a pattern of high impact on minority communities, but govern reports have also cited specific reasons why this could be the case. these range from someone's occupation to the household size or even place of residence and pollution. in theory, you could fall into these higher risk groups, but not be a minority and achieve a lowest score in the table. so unless we assume by default,
9:25 am
but all members of ethnic minorities, labor, other crowd of households in the private areas and work in high risk sectors. critics play the focus should be on concrete risk factors and not simply skin color . and advocacy groups have been quick to pick up on the controller, say, these racist policies decide questions of life and death based on skin color and must be rescinded immediately. it's an abomination. they radically violate federal law. the united states constitution and the secret principle of equal justice for all, despite increasingly harsh measures, wave off the wave of kobe, it continues to affect the world. many specialists say targeted measures are needed to protect those in the population, most that risk. and just how those population groups are determined based on rational scientific study, may be part of the puzzle in ending the pandemic. there is no scientific basis to judge a person's need for medicine or higher is just based on race.
9:26 am
there are many, many other factors with quality you live in. houses are multiple occupation. many people, small houses, and you do jobs are highly category such as hooks cleaners, bus drivers. furthermore, there are then medical conditions and medical conditions r. s b immune suppression, heart disease, kidney disease, will be city, high blood pressure cause a lot of immigrants tend to be of what you would call darker skin and they are also whole. and they're also working in high risk jobs. so be that you are white or color as they call it in america. it is, it is polity that kills not necessarily the color of your skin. more russian peacekeepers have returned home after completing that mission and context.
