2:00 am
i'm from the south. everybody know know what their failure to some extent, i would argue that we're still fighting the civil war in the south is winning a personal views, that can cost you your job. a german navy admiral stepped down after he spoke to diplomatic rabbi publicly saying crimea is now part of russia. meanwhile, a useful meeting with a candid exchange of opinions at a critical moment. that's how the russian and u. s. foreign policy chief described brown 2 of their talks in geneva this week, which come amid rising tensions of ukraine and nato expansion. we recently knew i congress are going to deliver and 17 helicopters up to the latest round of de escalation talks. the u. s. joins other nato member states in ramping
2:01 am
up supplies of weaponry to key if that tells russia to pull back its own troops on its own soil and a fight of thank checking russia lashes out at american officials and the media that for pushing fresh and proven claims against moscow, publish right ahead of those crucial security talks with to scroll through a couple of random pages to be sure, none of the provisions stand up to any critical analysis. in many cases, it is simply a very good morning. thanks for joining me for the weekly on it looks like showing even the slightest support for russia can cost you dearly in the current political climate. the german navy chief assad to resign have to st. crimea is now part of russia, and that the west just stopped demonizing vladimir putin,
2:02 am
but his words font, a major diplomatic backlash. the details of that his aunt is peter oliver, vice admiral k. r. him shown by caused big shocks on saturday evening, as he stood down from his role as chief of the german navy. it follows comments that he made about the russian president vladimir burton and the ongoing tensions between russia, ukraine and nato. following this fall out from what he said and everything revolving around it, he felt his position had become untenable. i have just asked the federal minister of defense to release me from my duties as inspector of the navy with immediate effect. the thoughtless comments i made in a neon security and military policy are increasingly weighing on my office in order to prevent further damage to the german navy. i consider this a necessary step. the federal minister has accepted my request when it all relates the comments that shown by made while he was in india speaking to a defense think tank. he was speaking about crimea,
2:03 am
which he said would remain part of russia also about the russian president. vladimir burton, who he said only wants respect and probably deserves respect, is falling pressure because he can do it is easy to give him the respect he need. and also his us economy. appearance was, is gone. another commer, this is the fact once the video became public, there was outcry from sections of society saying they're shown by how to go more than an embarrassment what the german maybe commander says here on the label. utterly unacceptable, there must be consequences. but this is not the position of german foreign office vice admiral playing down the russian sabre rattling. this is a shocking statement. this crimea was annexed by russia. it almost sounds like god, blood for putting fire hen and navy chief must not play his own foreign policy.
2:04 am
game in a crisis. clearly vice admiral schon box thought he was off the record, but he was also fundamentally wrong on prospects of appeasing russia. ukraine is also not happy with what has gone on. in fact, the foreign ministry in t f is calling on germany to officially distance themselves from their fall, the navy chief and what he had to say. they saying that these comments went on to undermine the sovereignty of ukraine, the foreign minister there calling them unacceptable. but this is just the latest issue that we've seen very recently between kiev and lin. just last week. there were problems over the fact that berlin doesn't want to send weapons into ukraine. also, germany has locked the sale of a stony and weapons that were german made to ukraine. this su concerning the now former navy chief just the latest and was becoming
2:05 am
a growing number of problems from austria and foreign minister. karen, can i still is surprised by the scandal around the now former german navy chief? it's a pity that there is simply no, was the ability to, to, to pronounce opinions, to have some sort of opinions. i don't see here that the, for the mistake the inside as it is pronounced by the german media buddy nationally, by and large. i mean, where is the crime scene to turn that into something like breaking international use that to turn it into headline in days like really, everybody, i would say a simply every flexion of a very cumbersome situation. earlier in the week, the top diplomats of russia and america held a 2nd round of security tool to switzerland. washington's now promised to provide
2:06 am
moscow with a written response to the criminal concerns next week. here's some of the key points of those talks. ah, not here, any reasoning, justifying the american position on the russian ukraine border. only concerns, concerns, concerns with bush and officials. i've never threatened ukrainians of the nation, not even once. president zalinski, who has been under the wing of our western colleagues who patronize encouraging any sorts of action publicly said that if any ukraine citizen regards himself as bush and he should get out of ukraine, who is the one making threats? and what can these threats possibly lead to? that is the big question is we will not go back on the fundamental principles that we have and that we are committed to defend. and one of those is
2:07 am
a narrows opened, or russia has amassed very significant forces and you current order and continues to do some 100000 troops. most recently, including forces deployed to dealers, russia has addressed every concern which has been voiced, they admit that it's our own territory. was still say that there are too many trees . and then immediately in the same sense and they say that whatever americans are doing with their own choosing your work is none of our business. we do not claim any spheres of influence, but what nato is doing in regards to ukraine is clearly showing that the alliance sees it as a sphere of its own influence. it reflects the mentality of the west and community fully confident in its exceptionalism. they can do anything and the rest of us,
2:08 am
only with their permission and other ways of accusations against russia. the british foreign office claims to have gathered evidence of a plot to install a pro moscow government in g f. something russia has slanders being nonsense. the misinformation spread by the british foreign office is more evidence that it is the nato countries lead by the anglo saxons, thus escalating tensions around ukraine recall and the british foreign office to stop provocative activities, stop spreading nonsense and concentrate on studying the history of the thomas will yoke while there is no evidence published, supporting the claim, britain has already called for the escalation london says, one of the potential candidates is for me ukrainian mp of guinea more. i have something that seems to have taken him by surprise, given that he's been banned from russia since 2018 and it's not only the u. k, which moscow believes is bogged down in so called fake news just hours ahead of
2:09 am
this week. security talks, the us state department outlined what is cited as being examples of russian dis, information in a report that presents its opinions. the solid facts. russia's foreign minister was critical of both the content and this time to, to more you go go to rosie both of these documents, which the u. s. state department has of course prepare deliberately for today's meeting was simply impossible to read it off to scroll through a couple of random pages to be sure, none of the provision stand up to any critical analysis. in many cases, it is simply alive to school on those in response, rushes drawn up, his own fact checking less than the cues, washington of a toxic campaign against russia. dante's mag sd of as compared to stances, you may have seen this list are fantastic expos, a of russian fiction. that's a good read, bold print and a world painted in black and white. simplified, pre digested and regurgitated russians. bad americans,
2:10 am
good lito does not encircle russia. nato enlargement is not directed against russia. over the last 20 years old nato coalition potential has been a mass on its eastern flank. the lances expansion towards russian borders is accompanied by the creation earned modernization of military infrastructure. russia has 60 neighbors in the ninety's, only one of those was a nato state that it became to poland joined. then it became 5 with ukraine and ga, potentially joining. that would be 7 with all the perks that carries like us bases and troops. pray tell how is that not the dictionary definition of encirclement russia is use a statement from high level officials as well as disinformation and propaganda
2:11 am
outlets to intentionally spread outright falsehoods, to attempt to create a pretext for military action. we all know how the u. s. uses differ information to create a pretext for invading independence states. the irony seems lost entirely on the us state department, we still remember colon pow right sadam. hussein has not. verifiably accounted for even one teaspoonful of this deadly material. the chief of the state department where then of all around 2 decades ago, lying to the world about saddam's weapons of mass destruction. and setting the stage for the invasion of iraq, which killed an estimated half a 1000000 people. because i don't believe that russia has come close to that level of misinformation. there are no credible reports of any ethnic russians or russia. speakers been under threats from the ukrainian government
2:12 am
violations of the right self. the multi 1000000 russian speaking population in ukraine have reached an enormous level. the government dobs a discriminatory laws on language education and so called indigenous peoples driving the russian language. out of all the spheres of life, ukraine is not that democratic paradise. the washington portrays it to be and is one of the most corrupt countries in the world, say various reports, a country where the leaders of the 2 biggest opposition parties are right now, being prosecuted and persecuted, a say to keep them out of power. a country where opposition media has been forced to shut down one after the other or tact without any sort of international reaction . ethnic russians are no longer recognized as native residents. the russian language, the native language of a 3rd of the ukrainian population. as now forbidden and schools and governments in
2:13 am
coffee shops in supermarkets. yes, russians in ukraine are very much the de finish it of persecuted. nato never promised not to admit new members. on the 9th of february 1990 u. s. secretary of state james baker said during the meeting with the soviet foreign minister, edward shepard not say about the ironclad guarantees that nato jurisdictions and military units won't move an inch eastward. it's a sorry world where, where russians know what the state department said better than the state department . the shame, the director of the cia robot gate, famously warned against the expansion of nato because and i quote, gorbachev's and others were led to believe that that wouldn't happen. west german foreign minister hands, deed 3, again, ships and i quote, this is to
2:14 am
a large crowd. neither should rule out any expansion of its territory towards the east moving it closer to the soviet borders. i have much more just not enough time, but it is remarkable how a document that sets out a fight rush and this information bays and basks in so many lies of its own. even ortiz become a target of accusations from washington, with the estate department assisting our te and fellow news. alice spinning used disinformation to advance russia's foreign policy. russia's dis, information and propaganda ecosystem. the u. s. they de pomona, something to say in their brand new reports that stop for a moment and enjoy top people did devote their time and passion of drool tier of 3 favorite parts. party and sputnik frequently give favourable coverage to
2:15 am
organizations such as weak meeks that have received information from hackers working for russian and telecom services to the people in the state department or on number one, funds reading and watching only r t and sputnik otherwise. how can this be explained? a blow for julian assange and for press freedom. julian sans he infuriated washington, now he's facing life in prison. julian assange, indictment failed to mention wiki likes, video, that exposed us war crimes in iraq. there are several indicators that show r t and sputnik. i'm not analogous to journalistic lee independent media outlets such as b, b. c. invoice in america. the 1st r t and sputnik collect b, b, c. and voice of american transparent organizational and financial structures. we never lie about our budget. however, the us agency for global media us. hey jim dove. well, i don't know exactly what they invest in r t and,
2:16 am
and sputnik and in other russian media. but i know that it's more than what the united states government and the best of course, our media and russian is 10 times a 100 to think it's around a 10 x factor. absolutely less follows of dollars. in 2019 usa g m allocated $808000000.00 to its networks. while in 2019 artist budget was almost 316000000. combining it with the budget of rossi, as you want, knew it was only 430000000. or here we have to agree with people in the state department. i'll see is definitely not the same in likely attempt to damage the reputation of may done revolution activists, ukrainian leadership and the ukraine forces in the ukraine allies in the russian population. the criminal pushed the narrative, the neo not to them was ramp and ukraine, prod you during, and also the annexation of crime in. why isn't anyone questioning this narrative,
2:17 am
brutal attacks on roma people, l g, b, t, people, and rights activists have been on the rise in recent months in ukraine. the government has taken little action and respond which cannot but embolden and encourage the attackers message to the u. s. department question more. who, speaking of the last point mentioned in unclipped the us state department is accused russia major of portraying ukraine as a nazi state on the articles presented as evidence that that was written for our tea bipolar robins. the problem here is not that the government is fascist. john, so there is clearly an enormous exaggeration despite restrictions on the use of the russian language and the recent repression of some anti government medium personalities. ukraine remains arose, be free and open society. it's not remotely fascist. an article i wrote in which i actually say that the idea about ukrainian government is fascist,
2:18 am
is an enormous exaggeration. and ukraine is not remotely fashion. specifically what i say in the article when yeah, article is linked to in this state department report as evidence r t is spreading the false narrative that ukraine is a fascist state. what was the article impact as the direct opposite? and then was more similar sort of full statements on, on the next page about something of the story about a boy who was killed in a rebel occupied don't bass. and the russian press reported that time he'd been killed by ukrainian drone. the state department report says that the o s. c e. investigated and stated that boy was not killed by a drug and event provides a link to the o s c e report. but when you go to that and they can read what the o s c e said, does not say that the boy was not killed by
2:19 am
a drone. it simply states that the boy was killed by shrapnel and blocked injuries . so the statement in the state department report, but the u. s. c. e said back is entirely untrue. in the meantime, is america calls for russia to pull back his troops on the ukrainian border. the 1st shipment of washington, $200000000.00 military a package arrived in care of on saturday. i would note that the united states has delivered more security assistance to ukraine last year than any point in history. these deliveries are ongoing, including today there's more deliveries coming. we recently notified congress of our 10 to deliver and 17 helicopters of the nathan members, estonia, last year in lithuania. also pledge to send boldly for weaponry to strengthen ukraine's ability to defend itself. in the case of a russian invasion, russia denies all allegations of planning any kind of military offensive. germany doesn't support sending weapons to try and saying that it will not help to defuse
2:20 am
the crisis. but kids accuse berlin of undermining the unity between nato allies under encouraging putin's invasion, germany claims arms exports will only push tensions higher. the federal government has had a clear stance regarding arms exports in recent years. we have not supported the export of lethal weapons from germany, while local authorities in the self proclaimed the yes republic claim around $120000.00 ukrainian soldiers have gathered on the border. millions in the water region been living in fear for more than 7 years already. and now it seems that lives might be even greater risk because of the escalating tension. for the us marine corps intelligence officer, scott ritter believes washington's arms exposed to ukraine, accounts productive fund, undermine the u. s. position if you don't steadily, the weapons in the united states. that opens up joe biden to criticism from congress at a time when he needs congressional support for domestic programs. so what we're
2:21 am
seeing here is the consequences of allowing your foreign policy, your national security policy, be hijacked by domestic lou. the fact that tony blink in his meeting with lab rob to discuss the diplomatic off ramp for the current crisis. at the same time, the united states is green lighting, of the delivery of weapons for the sole purpose of killing russia is because you don't have deterrence unless you have a real capability. it's totally counterproductive and it undermines the american position when they say, you know, we won't allow nato to join for years. you don't need to worry about it. what's the difference between a ukraine that's a member of nato receiving western military aid and ukraine, who's not a member of nato receiving western military from the russia perspective? there is no difference. the well for the world switches people has doubled during the pandemic, while the poor of suffered increased death rates and poverty due to lack of treatment and vaccines. these are the findings of report by oaks fam,
2:22 am
called inequality kills shante claims policy choices by governments of skewed in favor of the rich the well for the world's 10 rich's men, his double tis the pandemic began the income 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 that. and then make, of course, more than
2:23 am
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, 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 unhealthy, state of affairs, of a unhealthy society that needs addressing. according to or from the pandemic, is pushed more than 160000000 people into poverty. while an estimated 17000000 of died from the grow devoris and around 6000000 more have also lost their lives due to a lack of health care in poor countries. meanwhile, the top 10 people on the forbes rich list including well known figures such as the
2:24 am
la musk, jeff bay's awesome bill gates have 6 times more money than the poor. 3000000000 people combined while they doubled the wealth, the incomes of 99 percent of the world's population got worse. since the bank demick began a new 1000000000 has been created roughly every day of some believes a key reason for such inequality is vaccine supplies. one of those key drivers for inequality has been a vaccine access to vaccines. so the difference between rich and poor countries has grown the inequality. so and the poor countries in africa and generally only 10 percent of the population has had his 1st course of vaccination america. and it's economic power and several other countries in the world can help reverse that from unlocking that and from the calculations that, that we have made. it would be possible for example,
2:25 am
to vaccinate the whole world to heave and health care for all the universal health care. and there ways and all come and others have campaigned for lifting those intellectual property rights. that in fact, mean that pharmaceutical have a monopoly over a week, vaccines that are not readily available or produced as, as, as, as they could all over the world with the electron very into cove. it's taking whole will why countries like denmark, hosts, i'll do to administrate full thank see the spokesperson for the world health organization talk to through the latest developments and what lies ahead well, what we see leaks is, is the increase in number of concessions around the world and as we see on current becoming a dominant variance, we have seen in one week 50000000 newly fashion, which is the absolute director, is the beginning of contributing decrease from the previous week. so in the sheer
2:26 am
number of infections will bring more people to hospitals, even though one crew may prove less your disease then don't previous marian, these numbers are low. we will need more pressure on how system. so it is very dangerous situations. the country are trying to find the best way to, to reduce the risk of transmission. we know what needs to be done. so we hope that people will not be in the market and they will be max and they can become effective mostly those who have not have their primary series of like sees the countries are basically looking into their society functions that we can completely understand that governments are trying to find the ways to balance the public health side of the story and public. oh ben,
