9:02 am
fate of ortiz, german language channel, r t d e, which has been facing a lot of censorship in germany, the russian foreign minister, circ a live, rob said that the german state was actually directly involved in this violation of free journalism. going as far to say that sanctions mainly even need to be taken if the matter is not resolved. as for his german counterpart, she said that the state actually was not involved. so let's take a listen to what they both said. not i cannot ask the state interference regarding r t d. well, that's just not true enough. unless you know when you sit below, go to get them out of school. but i used to, we have every reason to believe that the german government is directly involved in what is happening. let me remind you that banking services for our journalists were stopped at an early stage. of the german media regulator blocked the satellite signal despite the serbian license, we believe that this is an interference in the work of independent journalists. but
9:03 am
it wasn't all bare bark, had to say about the rtp, actually she want to went on at length to speak about how popular or channel is about how it's the 4th largest on social media, based on what she said, you might even think she was one of our fans cannot in biology and how it's the 4th largest on social media, not. and of course, there was also a lot of talk about the security guarantees that russia's proposed for itself and nato to prevent further escalation of the conflict in ukraine. russia is still waiting for concrete answers from nato and the west. although we have heard from washington, which is called the the, the proposals that rushes put forward. nonstarter negotiating points for the german foreign ministers. part though, she said that the german government is ready for serious discussions about these proposals, while she also demanded security guarantees from russia. and she said that russian
9:04 am
troops are somehow threatening the russian troops that are located on russian territory near ukraine. as for elaborate though, he said that the russian state has the right to do what it wants within its own territory. welcome to me, i will not in recent weeks, more than 100000 russian troops and military equipment were messed near the ukrainian boys without any visible reason. it's hard to consider this as anything other than shreds. we needed that. we explained the provocation coming from many western politicians is making it necessary for our troops to conduct combat training measures. and we explained that we cannot accept certain demands regarding the actions of our forces on our own soil. we drew attention to the fact that while the u. s. and of the nato members at demanding the removal of our forces. they are positioning troops, including troops who have arrived in your, from overseas of the double standard here is obvious. it does seem though, that the to foreign minister is, do you see i,
9:05 am
on the north stream to gas pipeline bare buck said that europe needs russia to be a reliable supplier of gas to solve this energy crisis. that's right. now, plaguing the continent. while lab ralph said that he had a long talk with his german counterpart about the unfortunate politicization of the north stream to pipeline. so, a lot of topics were discussed at this press conference between the foreign ministers of germany and russia. taken us through the main developments of the day in the discussion r t double quarter in central moscow. now the wealth of the world's richest people has doubled during the pandemic, while the pur, uh, suffered, increased death rates and poverty due to a lack of treatment. and vaccines, those are the findings of a report by ox, from called inequality kills the charity claims policy choices by governments or student favor of the rich. the well for the world's 10 riches men has doubled to
9:06 am
the pandemic began the incomes of 99 percent of humanity, a worse off because of coven 19. this is not by chance, but choice. economic violence is perpetrated when structural policy choices are made for the richest and most powerful people. this causes direct com to us all the time they make has really exposed been a call, it is and fuel them. so oxide has been tracking billionaire wealth for some time and of course the full list shows that it has been growing over the last 40 years. but over the last 2 years it's been really exponential. so we call it a billionaire bonanza. and at the other end of the spectrum, of course, for 99 percent of humanity, it's been a very, very difficult time. and most people are worse off as a result of it. and then make, of course, more than a 160000000 people have fallen into poverty during this time. and if in a moment when you can see the difference is really showing very, very starkly can't cause success. when there is such disparity,
9:07 am
that at one end of the spectrum, you have people who have more wilson, they can spend in several lifetime, and the other we have people struggling to pay their next health bill or, or not knowing where the next meal is coming from. having such a level of disparity affects everyone, even the wealthiest, because you know it's a sign of an unhealthy state of affairs, of a unhealthy society that needs addressing. well, they figures being talked about by ox. from that they've concluded pretty staggering the pandemic. they say, has pushed more than 160000000 people into poverty. while an estimated 17000000, they allege have died from corona virus, and around 6000000 more. have also lost their lives due to a lack of health care and per countries. meanwhile, the top 10 people on forbes rich listening sitting well known public figures such as elan, must jeff bay's off and bill gates have 6 times more money than the purchase
9:08 am
3000000000 combined. but won't be double there. well, the incomes of 99 percent of the world's population worse and since the pandemic began a new 1000000000 or has been created roughly every day. ok from believe the key reason for such inequality is vaccine supply. one of those key drivers for equality has been a vaccine access to vaccines. so the difference between rich and poor countries has grown the inequality. so and the poorest countries in africa, in general, only 10 percent of the population has had his 1st course of vaccination america. economic power and several other countries in the world can help reverse that from unlocking that from the calculations that, that we have made. it would be possible, for example, to vaccinate the whole world to chief and health care for all universal health care . and there ways and ok and others have campaigned for lifting those intellectual
9:09 am
property rights. that in fact, mean that pharmaceutical have a monopoly over koby vaccines that are not readily available or produced as, as, as, as they could all over the world. a judge in the us say that a 26 year old who sexually assaulted a young girl as a teenage meal. and a since transition to a female should not be sent to another jail for fear of being victimized. the decision by the los angeles district attorney has attracted a lot of criticism. a scale of open takes us 3. so how does a criminal avoid prison time for assaulting a 10 year old girl and a women's bathroom? apparently, if the criminal was 17 and not a legal adult at the time they committed the crime and they then changed their gender. they can get off with a mere sentence of home confinement and not a prison term, as well as words of sympathy from the district attorney. the district attorney
9:10 am
express concern that tubs to south would be victimized if placed in an adult facility as it transitioned to woman and noted a probation reports actually recommended tubs be sentenced to home confinement. james tubbs allegedly assaulted a 10 year old girl and a women's bathroom in 2014. the police were able to track and 2019 was dna evidence when he was once again arrested on suspicion of battering. now the cases sparking outrage across the country tops will be off for a therapeutic interventions under the auspices of her story of justice and possibly granted only probation or parole. where is the justice for her young victim to her family? it's madness. it makes a mockery of all criminal justice system. the d i is trying to distance himself from the result and late blame on the judge when in fact, it's only happened because of his policy against transferring juvenile cases to other colt. this is not somebody who should appear in the juvenile system. this clearly shows you the dangerous aspect of the blanket policies of george gaskin.
9:11 am
the l. a. county district attorney has vowed to stop prosecuting children as adults, many liberals, as well as conservatives, have taken issue with his policies. beverly hills city council members have led the charge for him to be re called amid a string of robberies in this wealthy community. they blame him for eliminating bail and dropping charges. in many cases. i think we're opening a very, very dangerous can of worms when we allow the gender or the sexual orientation of a person to basically allow them to escape. crop were punishment to say that because they are, you know, they were a minor at the time of the crime that they shouldn't go to an adult facility. these type of decisions are very dangerous, and they surely throw justice out the window in the last 8 of the american people. this is a modern day travesty to, to be a 10 year old girl in the bathroom and attacked by a complete stranger will cause fear in her for probably years in her ability to
9:12 am
feel safe and comfortable in just normal surroundings. and so for her to have to carry that knowledge and that memory. and then to also know that tubs is not going to be properly placed in jail and, and hell, and, you know, for 2 years as recommended, it's really a travis each now that this person gets to walk away with committing this crime and, and walk away escaping proper punishment. there's no question that us policies of mass incarceration have been out of control over the last several decades. the u. s . a has the highest prison population in the world. communities have been devastated. however, the rising crime in cities across the united states, a middle wave of new liberal policy is from local prosecutors, as people wandering about the dangers of the opposite extreme fail bobbin r t new york. there's being another update in the often inflamed
9:13 am
relationship between hurry pulled her or 3rd j. k. rowling and members of the transgender community police in scotland oven. and they will not, not take any action over a tweet by an activist that revealed rollings home address. at the time of both the writer wrote this response to the trans campaigners they should have reflected on the fact that i've now received so many death threats. i could paper the house with them and haven't stopped speaking out. yeah, the post she's responding to include a trans activists standing by her house holding signs with slogans such as trends liberation, not though deleted. it was immediately re posted with her home information available for all to see rulings a she's being targeted for. speaking up for women, sex based rights, people were quick to point out the power and double standards in the police's decision not to charge the campaigners. i wonder why no actions being taken. i'd assume it's because for kyra the food chain i trans support us and don't want to
9:14 am
upset the apple cart. the fact her address or any one's a just be posted on line without knowledge or consent is wrong, regardless of why it's a violation of safety. doc saying is illegal and it doesn't matter if you delete the content a few hours later makes you wonder what the police are playing it, cherry picking what is lawful, depending on who is complaining. she used to pander to those people, even changing the sexuality of characters, to please them. she played working mental gymnastics and slipped up, and then the mob turned on her. it is quite surprising. they're not taking any kind of action, although you see this is a very much a gray area where legality is difficult to prove. and in this particular case, i believe the, the police were reviewed the circumstances, clearly with the lawyers and decided that there wasn't any legality. that we have now a situation in the u. k. in other countries where people don't believe the others have a right to have a view. and this is all,
9:15 am
this is an opposing view to them. and i think that's good, disgusting. and, and you know, this well, this could well end up in some form of prosecution or someone should cause harassment apps. and i believe that she has said that she's had all sorts of problems since then. so individuals of committed harassment afterwards may well end up being guilty of crimes. a backlash against rolling began in 2020 after she questioned the headlines about quote, people who men straight by claiming the meaning of the word woman had been lost. some twitter users took out to me and she was saying transgender men and women should have fewer rights, political commented or under walker said, u. k. police really willing to go after crime when it suits them. any police force that equality can do more or less investigation. i refer you back to the case of the scottish comedian, but taught his dog or his watchdog. how to do hitler salutes in order to prevent of
9:16 am
a joke. they are perfectly willing to put it in the resources when it suits them, but they're not willing to put in the resources when it doesn't suit that police. scotland will be perfectly happy with j. k. rowling being intimidated, perfectly happy without being harassed and will take actually no action to defend time because they don't agree with that. politically. my comment is next. jake has all the he's going to say she can afford security. what about the rest of breton to have these highly political police force? highly political police? li does police under political control? what politician, fellow, who to prosecute when that is a danger? not to j. k. rowling, cuz she's rich and powerful. was the ordinary people, like, you know, maybe this is, are you still ahead this hour the scandal surrounding the british prime minister, partying during the countries 1st, colbert locked, know drugs in the opposition leader? he was also picture drinking with colleagues at the time. we'll look at how the
9:17 am
public's patience is wearing. i ah
9:18 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy plantation, let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic development only personally and get into this. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very political time, time to sit down and talk a low again, a british man who took 4 people hostage at a synagogue in the u. s. state of texas at the weekend was previously flagged by u. k. authorities malik fatal act room been seen as a potential islamist are risk during a 2020 investigation by britons and my 5 intelligence agency. but the u. k. authorities determined that he posed no threat of the time he was left on record as
9:19 am
a person of interest, but was able to fly to the u. s. and by a firearm there, it appears the u. k. authorities had not relayed any of their concerns at bottom to their american counterparts. before the attack. the alleged perpetrator was killed after an 11 hour standoff at the synagogue in cali. vill a suburb of dallas. all the hostages survived. police in england tub, detain 2 teenagers as part of the ongoing investigation into the attack. while i'm delighted to welcome live on to the program now. une michelle and the former m. i 5 intelligence officer in the u. k. on a pleasure to have you on, you, of course, will know better than anyone the sheer amount of potential terrorist cases being investigated by intelligent services. but given this alleged perpetrator had a criminal record on mental health problems, according to his family. surely a basic warning, at least should have been passed at side. well, i think it was
9:20 am
a failure to level one is that and i 5, did drop the investigation into him and it might well have been because he was seen to have mental health issues rather than a terrorist to contention. but the other m astonishing thing from my perspective is the fact that he was out in the states as well, with a string of convictions and with his mental health issues in the background. and, you know, the u. k. u s. homeland security act is supposed to be the, precisely to blog people coming in to the us on these grounds. so it's not just my fault. i think although i do think we have a problem, one in the shivone misinformation that guessing she evolving that people have to investigate that for the u. s. also to have allowed him in not have caught out the u. k. and said miss mans got convictions. all over the place. we can't let him in send him back. so i think it's a failure on both sides. yeah, and it's not as if this happened 30 years ago. this is 2020,
9:21 am
that this investigation went on and he was still seen as a and a person that needs to be occasionally checked. i think that's the way they put it when you look into it. but what does that say about the sodium special relationship across the atlantic between the you can the us ali, i think there is a problem one because they over rely on technology. so this is something i've had for many, many years now that because they have the technology to scoop up all our information and under the investor power act in the u. k. which means bulk hacking, data set, hacking book, computer hacking, they are drowning and normally of information coming in so that the people of interest can often just be drowned out, and the services don't act appropriately. so i think that's one problem. i think also that perhaps there is a slight breakdown between the special relationship which has always been funded and he based on intelligence relationship between the u. k and the u. s. so that's interesting. seen it. so it's also a blurring of lines, i think,
9:22 am
between the criminal, the terroristic and mental health issue. and it seems like this man probably had sort of doubled in all 3. i mean, suddenly it's been reported that he was all finishing to radical islamists, such as john child dream people. so he should be massively flagged up. not just, you know, oh, he was a subject interest, but you know, we can close this down now a year ago. there should be a lot of red flags flying. that is man. and the fact that he could get out of u. k wasn't being investigation can get into the usa despite it's draconian. borders was is astonishing. yeah. and just to add to that he went in to g, f. k. he apparently got a gun on verified whether or not he got it illegally or boarded legally. and then made his way down to texas, got into a synagogue as well. that's a long way not to be tracked. but you would imagine the american intelligence agencies are pretty angry today that they didn't even have a warning to go on. i would think they would be yes,
9:23 am
but also they should be angry with themselves because i mean, if this guy profile isn't exactly, christine going into the usa with the criminal convictions behind him, his mental health issues as well being known, but also the fact that he could apparently travel and stay patiently homeless shelters, and then just pick up a gun somehow. i mean, that also says, i think a lot about the american gun culture that it's so easy pick up a lethal weapon like that. noticing that when you read into it, that he was able just to get a gun lethal weapon without being on any authority watch list at all. absolutely, absolutely. i mean one presumes he did bottle history. so this would be, this was criminal element to his as well, but that just shows an absolute failure on every, from the intelligence agencies in the u. k. the border security usa, the policing security in the usa as well. and i think, you know, it's great now that we can pinpoint what happened, what went wrong in this case, but that's not how our intelligence agencies based in the usa and the case working
9:24 am
. they are there to preemptively gather intelligence, to preemptively stop p sort of terrorist attacks. not just have the information that can be used and be useful after an attack. the police are going to do. so why do we spend this money on all, incredibly invasive intelligence agencies, if they are letting these old people slip between the cracked time after time after time, not just in the u. k, or the u. s. sake, but across europe as well as the last 7 years. and are you confident lessons have been learned as to what happened over the weekend, or are we going to see further instance other crimes happening if there is what seems to be on the i said such a weak communication between the u. k. and us authorities. i am sure they will say the lessons of these. and what that will mean in reality is that they will probably scoop up and share even more and increasingly invasive communication technologically. and they will say to protect all of us against terrorism. whereas
9:25 am
in fact, if they did the job properly preemptively to target and stop potential terrorists rather than waiting all on privacy and take away all our civil liberties and countries that would be much more effective. and that would be the channel. i would suggest that they start looking into, rather than just aggressively breaking whale human rights and civil liberties on line, which is not helping them if not helping them to protect us. and it's not protecting the national security. yes, so many ramifications as you go through there as well. i need to bring up after this instant. thank you so much for your time and your thoughts today. and michelle and former m. i 5 intelligence officer the u. k. his party gates scandal, it's gaining momentum for a change though, it's not the prime minister boris johnson. both the british opposition leader who's the center of attention footage has emerged here is showing the labor leader a curious storm or drinking beer with stuff during the 2021 spring locked on. although he says he did nothing wrong on like the prime minister. he's refusing to
9:26 am
apologize just days before the election. we've been very busy working in the office . we stopped for something to eat. and then we carried on working no party, no breach of the rules, and absolutely no comparison with the prime minister it. but it all comes in at a high profile scandal involving the u. k. p. m. who is picture of partying during the country's 1st locked on the story, still making headlines with johnston's popularity plummeting to an all time low. well, when it's all unfolded, mister starr himself ridicule, a prime minister for the way he justified the shin dix his defense that he didn't realize he was, it's a party. ha, that is so ridiculous. food is actually offensive to the prayer with the whole country was look town. he was posting boozy policies in town express. easy,
9:27 am
now go to to the decent thing and resign. well people we spoke to in london appeared to be losing their patience with the whole party gate saga. the whole bunch of people they do what they like and then we are lost. now you can't do this . if i did agency family. i've been with my friends in april, april. she died in april 20 i wasn't even able to see her live into whatever family nice london is one room for the government. one room for the rest of what should happen is either johnson is fine or the fines scrapped and everybody was signed to get their money back. i think, but he was not appropriate at all to spectrum and then to his as well. and then we vote, care of was basically society as a wall had to go through. what so smell, it's the stench of hypocrisy. obviously he wasn't doing what
9:28 am
a lot subarus staff seemed to be during having a right booze up in the garden. but he was inside the house, he was drinking beer and his excuse that they were having a chinese and therefore is a work meal is frankly ludicrous. these politicians are all the same. they make the rules, and they want us to act in a certain way. but they don't want the rules to apply to them, but there are many other things. now we need to move on. things like assuring inflation that the job losses that are going to be around the corner. let's talk about the migrant problem as well at dover. let's talk about law and order they, they're the things that the brave public now want, boorish to get on top of law. it's packed to the rafters, boone, buster, head in moments, couch the business team. and they're a guest right after the break to nicholas. ah
9:29 am
got they got by there francisco caught me, he labinski forgot to push and push it for her. even though she somebody a little bit strange to what i still was a sub that mistaken at the but i books a believe about what to do to get hope. all right, so i'm are, you will be with you. if you this was a boy like you, but you're for both for pretty weaker for mobile, shopped for documents that are in your booth. oh, well it shows the wrong one. i just don't know. i mean, you have to figure out this thing becomes the advocate and engagement.
9:30 am
it was betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look so common ground. ah, this is boom, bought the one business, so you can't afford to miss barbara and your board. and i'm rachel blevins in washington. coming up the world economic forum has kicked off it's virtual summit. we'll tell you what china's president had the day and what we've learned about the performance of the chinese economy in 2021.
