1:05 pm
developments there from outside the capital building. of course, the venue of so much chaos in january to reassure more tim, what's on now, it looks like showing even the slightest support for russia can cost you dearly in the current political climate. germany's navy chief has had to resign, after seeing crimea is now part of russia and that the west should stop demonizing vladimir putin. but his word spark to major diplomatic backlash or europe correspondent peter oliver picks up the story. by sod rotate are him shown by cause 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 pig and the ongoing tensions between russia, ukraine and nato. following this fall out from what he said and everything
1:06 pm
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 thought was comments i made in india and security and military policy are increasingly weighing on my office in order to prevent further damage to the german navy. i consider this necessary staff. the federal minister has accepted my request when it all relates the comments that show back made while he was in india speaking to a defense think tank. he was speaking about crimea, 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 probably putting pressure on it because he can do it. it is easy to get him the respect, he also gives us the caught me up and he's got another come. this is once the video became public,
1:07 pm
there was outcry from sections of society saying they're shown by how to go more than an embarrassment. what the german may be commanded says here on the label, actually 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 but cod blood for burton fire him a navy chief must not play his own foreign policy 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 kiev is calling on germany to officially distance themselves from their fall. that navy chief and what he taught to say they saying that these comments went on to undermine the sovereignty of ukraine,
1:08 pm
the foreign minister there calling them on acceptable. but this is just the latest issue that we've seen very recently between kiev and berlin just last week. there were problems over the fact that berlin doesn't want to send weapons into ukraine. also, germany has blocked the sale of a stony and weapons that were german made to ukraine. this issue concerning the now former navy chief just the latest and was becoming a growing number of problems. we spoke to journalist for north 3rd, thomas foss, bender assured his you about the german vice admiral stamps on crimea. of course the, the leadership, the german political leadership and the media are concerned about the fact that within the rank and file off the government of the army and among the population. there is this common sense understanding that crimea will remain within russia and
1:09 pm
that there is, there is this common understanding that whatever mr. put in did, over the last 20 years, or whether it's against i saw a for us whether we like it or not in command, deserves a certain level of respect. so i would say the fact that that, that provoke the anger was that this was not that he doesn't not represent a solitary and individual opinion here. but rather why did distributed one that you get this feeling over the last weeks, not only among the population. there was always a strong consensus in terms of good relations with russia, but among the countries leadership, the leading media that there are a certain initiatives that say, well, it's not to cite too strongly here with one side in this conflict. and people understand that the ukraine is not the model democracy that we have to defend, that germany has to defend at all costs that this is, but by and large, an effort to a project, us power, right up to it with the russian border. and the extent to which germany wants to
1:10 pm
support such an effort by the u. s. g of politicians as not meet consensus here in this country. and yet another wave of accusations against russia, the british foreign office, i said it's good evidence of a plot to install a prove moscow government in key. if russia has slum the claim is 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. we call in the british foreign office to stop provocative activities. stop spreading nonsense and concentrate on studying the history of the ta ta mumble yoke. the british government has so far provided no evidence to bank its claim of a russian plot in ukraine. but london hounds named former ukrainian m p. if guinea, mariah, if i was a potential true kremlin candidate, he's expressed surprise about that, pointing out that he's been banned from russia since 2018. we've sent
1:11 pm
a request to the british foreign office asking them to clarify their allegations. let you know if we get a response to that. now, earlier we spoke to adrienne l. cassandra, a political risk consultant and lawyer. he believes the u. k. allegations stem from the countries own political crisis. brittle left you on some time ago and it's 6 for its place in the world. we know that the global writ written project appears to be a false. we know that the current, the, or is johnson is having a very serious trouble. and in my opinion, what the british government is doing through the british intelligence is to why i mean, to say it's place within the u. s. framework to contain russia. but also we have to bear in mind, at least trust is aiming to step into boys. johnson shoes is
1:12 pm
a big advantage for her to go in february and one time through russia and portrayed her so as a totally read leader who again, you know, stood up to kremlin. and to put in this all the politics within the tory party and national politics in the u. k. so yes, it is a distraction and it's not only britain which moscow believes as bogged down in so called fake news just hours ahead of this week. security talks, the u. s. state department, i'd lined with it's cited as examples of russian disinformation rushes. foreign minister was critical of both the content on its timing is zoom or you can go to rosie. but the lease documents which the us state department has of course, prepare deliberately for today's meeting, a simply impossible to read. it's enough 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 a lie. in response,
1:13 pm
russia has drawn up its own fact checking list and accuse washington of a toxic campaign against russian ortiz. murat garcia has been comparing the 2 stances. you may have seen this list. oh, fantastic. expose 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. good liter 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 the nato state. that it
1:14 pm
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 will that not the dictionary definition of encirclement russia uses statements from high level officials as well as disinformation and propaganda 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 independent 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.
1:15 pm
whether 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 russian speakers been under threats from the ukrainian government 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 cold indigenous peoples driving the russian language out of all the spheres of life. ukraine is not the democratic paradise, the washington portrayed that 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
1:16 pm
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 government in coffee shops in supermarkets. yes, russians in ukraine are very much the de finish it of persecuted. nature 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 iron clad guarantees that nato jurisdictions and
1:17 pm
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 robert gates 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 that again ships and i quote, this is to 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 todd, but it is remarkable how a document that sets out a fight russian, this information bathed in basks in so many lies of its sewed. and r t, as well, has become a target of us accusations. the state department has released the report insisting
1:18 pm
that this channel on fellow news outlet. sputnik use disinformation, instead of supporting mainstream narratives. the reports even accuses russian media of betraying ukraine as a not see state on to back out off. it mentions an article written for r t by history in paul robinson. so let's actually take a look at what the article has to say. problem here is not that the government is a fascist john. so that is clearly an enormous exaggeration. despite restrictions on the use of the russian language and the recent repression of some anti government meter personalities, ukraine remains rose, be free and open society. it's not remotely fascist. an article i wrote in which i actually say that the idea that on buchanan government is fascist, is an enormous exaggeration. and that ukraine is not remotely fascist. this specifically what i say in the article,
1:19 pm
and yet this article is linked to in the state department report as evidence r t is spreading the false narrative that ukraine is a fascist state or is the article in fact as the lead direct opposite. and then there's more similar sort of false statements on the next page about something else . the story about a boy who was killed in rebel occupied don't bass, and the russian press reported that he'd been killed by ukrainian drone. the state department report says that the o s. c. investigated and stated that the boy was not killed by a drug and event provides a link to the o. s c e report. but when you go to and you can read what the o s c said, it does not say that the boy was not killed by a drug. it's simply states that the boy was killed by shrapnel and blast injuries. so the statement in the state department report, but u. s. c e said that is in totty on true. well as the u. s. calls for russia to pull
1:20 pm
back its troops on the ukrainian border, the 1st shipment of washington's 200000000 dollar military a package arrived in kiev on saturday. i would note that the united states has delivered more security assistance to ukraine in the last year than any point in history. and these deliveries are ongoing, including today there's more deliveries coming. we recently notified congress of our intend to deliver and 17 helicopters, other nato members as stony law fear and the few india have pledged to send more lethal weapons to strengthen ukraine's ability to defend itself in case of a russian invasion. russia denies all the allegations about funding, any kind of military offensive. germany doesn't support sending weapons to ukraine either saying it will not help the fuse, the crisis. but kids accuse berlin of undermining the unity between nato allies. i'm encouraging loving. we are putin's invasion. however,
1:21 pm
germany claims arms exports will only pers, 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. me my local authorities in the south proclaimed done yet. republic claim around 120000 ukrainian suitors had gathered on the border civilians in the war torn region have been living in fear for more than 7 years already. now it seemed their lives may be at even greater risk due to the escalating tensions former us marine corps intelligence officers, scott ritter believes washington's arms export to ukraine. are contra productive and undermined security. if you don't leave a 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, you know, we're, we're seeing here is the consequences of allowing your foreign policy,
1:22 pm
your national security policy to be hijacked, by domestic little the fact that tony blinking his meeting with lab rob to discuss a 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 russians, 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 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 russian perspective. there is no difference. now the wealth of the world's richest people has doubled during the pandemic, while the per suffered increased death rates and poverty due to a lack of treatment and vaccines. those are the findings of a report by ox,
1:23 pm
from called the inequality kills the charity claims policy. choices by governments are skewed in favor of the rich dwell for the world's 10 riches men has doubled to 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 fun they make has really exposed. been all 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,
1:24 pm
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, 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 according to ox farm cove. it's pushed more than a 160000000 people into poverty. while an estimated $17000000.00 died, center runs $6000000.00 more have also lost their lives due to a lack of health care and per a countries. while the top 10 people on forbes rich list thanksgiving,
1:25 pm
well known public figures such as long musk, jeff basis and bull gate, some 6 times more money than the purchase 3000000000 combined. but while they doubled their wealth, the incomes of 1909 percent of the world's population worse and since the pandemic begun, new billionaire has been created roughly every day we discuss not on more again with oxford. let's take a listen. one of those key drivers for inequality has been a vaccine access to vaccines. so the difference between rich and poor countries has grown quality. so and the 4 countries in africa and generally only 10 percent of the population has had his 1st course of vaccination america. and it's, 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, to vaccinate the whole world to achieve and health care for all the universal
1:26 pm
health care and their ways. and, and others have campaigned for lifting those intellectual property rights. that in fact, mean that pharmaceutical have a monopoly over corporate vaccines that are not readily available or produced as, as, as, as they could all over the world. ok, some news this sunday armenian presidents, armin circus. ian. how's? amongst his resignation? after 4 years in office, in the statement published on his website, sir cassiano said the decision was not influenced by emotion. explained that he quote, doesn't have the necessary instruments to influence the country's domestic and foreign policy. the president has been under intense pressure since the 2020 war with those are by john in the disputed no. going to cut back region, a peace deal between your yvonne and by qu, they to months of protests in armenia and a rift within the government. of the height of that deadly conflict. in october
1:27 pm
2020, we spoke exclusively with mr. kasey and he told us his top priority was always to protect human life. you can never simplify the complex politics. you can never simplify human behavior. i think the human lives are priority number one in any while it, if you ask me personally for me, human live is the most important think. and if we're thinking about resolving color above issue or any conflict, i think what you, you have to put as an access to, to this, or a solution or a process is the human life at the it doesn't matter the age, the race, the color your, your scheme or your religion, what is the absolute value is the human a human life? okay, that's a recap of a day and week that was stay close though for an in depth look at
1:28 pm
a burning matter or duck. forest under attack begins with what happened. i make no certainly no borders and just like to tease and you fresh as a merge. we don't have a therapy. we don't have a vaccine. the whole world leads to take action and to be ready, people are judgment, common crisis with we can do better. we should be doing better. every one is contributing each in their own way. but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is grateful to response has been massive, so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it
1:29 pm
together with oh, when i was sure seemed wrong when i just don't hold any world to shape out this day because the advocate and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look so common ground. with 2021 has a game broken, an abysmal record more than 17000000 hector as
