right to appeal to the u. k. supreme court to prevent his extradition to the u. s. on espionage charges. the ruling have been welcomed by his family, unsupported. what happened in court. today's precisely what we wanted to happen, but we're far from achieving justice in this case because gillian has been incarcerated for so long and he should not have spent a single day in prison with hello and welcome. it's 5 pm here in moscow. and this is alta international with the latest. well, it's headlines. thanks for joining us. i was start with news from germany. a gunman has opened fire in a lecture hall at the university of heidelberg, enduring several people, the shoe. so it was killed in the incident and it's believed he turns the gun on himself. and it's now get the full story from ortiz, donny armstrong, who joins been the studio. thanks for coming in, danny. what can you tell us about this incident?
9:02 am
well, this is a developing story and he of course, he's been quite hard to follow, given some reports on social media. we'll get to that in a minute. let's what we do know, what we know is that a government is open fight and electricity in heidelberg university. that's the oldest, higher education institution in germany, in the south west of the country injured several people. the attack was committed to one of those long battle guns type. you have to hold in 2 hands and prop against the shoulder. there's no reports on the extent of those who been injured to the extent of the injuries. that is, and how many have actually been injured. police said the perpetrator who use that long period gun with and initially it was reported that the courtesy forces had shot him dead in response to the incident. as now we reported that the gunman turned the gun on himself, now was being a little bit disturbing in some of the initial reports of being on social media. it was reported that this was some sort of radical league and he wanted to exact some
9:03 am
kind of revenge for the suffering of animals on their, on humans. and he had a, a hatred of students as well as perhaps coming from the fact that i would university is the oldest in germany, people putting 2 into and together making some sort of sick joke. now those reports have been denied. they have been rubbish, some sort of a, a sick kind of prime console media. there is no indication that this attack was politically motivated. police are saying that the government acted alone and there was no kind of traces of a radical regan isn't as full as so you're quite disturbing the reaction to that. but what we do know is that this is a, a loan attack that being put, it is a loan attack. a lone gunman, several injured developing story of course will be keeping people data about that in the future. thanks danny. we appreciate that as is always the case with breaking news. so many mixed reports at the beginning, but thanks for coming in and clarifying those for as often us and it's nathan allies have started
9:04 am
a series of navy drills in the mediterranean sea. the 12 day net june strike exercises come in the face of a conflict in ukraine, although they haven't been directly linked to that crisis. meanwhile, the e. u is offering ukraine 1200000000 euro in military aid peace, all of our reports. that's why we got major military drills underway in the mediterranean, involving the u. s. navy, the u. s. s. harry truman aircraft carrier involved in those it's worth pointing out that these particular war games that are underway, they weren't listed on the official schedule of what was going to be getting underway. however, the u. s. navy have been very quick to point out that as far as they're concerned, this has nothing to do with the situation that's unfolding in eastern europe regarding russia, ukraine, nato, and all of the tensions underway. their what we have seen though, on monday, is a promise to increase presence of nato forces in the east of europe. that's come
9:05 am
from nato. manders, denmark, at the netherlands, france and spain as well. they've all promised either military hardware in the form of war, ships, or aircraft, or in the form of personnel moving eastwards. what we have seen though, is a response from the russian presidential spokesperson, particularly to the announcement so of new nato troops moving eastwards and bows. a u. s. navy war games that are underway, the presidential spokesperson in moscow saying that they're paying close attention to what's happening. reduced in such nato actions and increased nato activity. now borders cannot be ignored by a military who are responsible for the security of our country. there is a constant process of drills, maneuvers, and military build up, which has never stopped and will continue. on this all comes as a you, foreign ministers are currently meeting in brussels earlier. it was on this to we were leo. well, the united states and the united kingdom pulled their either members of their staff
9:06 am
or the families of members of staff from their embassies in ukraine. and we heard from the e u. t foreign policy. the as a commissioner, jo separate burrell, who said that as it stood at the moment, there was no intention for you embassies to do the same just yet. i don't think we had it on my pledge as far as the negotiation going on sunday and going on. i don't think that we had less rain and i leave. they're all split among the nato allies when it comes to what to do with nato. when it comes to what to do with regards to russia and ukraine, we've seen a lot of pressure placed upon germany where the chancellor all f schultz has said that berlin won't be sending weaponry to ukraine. now, neighbors such as add those in the baltic states have been saying they should be stepping up and doing a lot more all f sholtes remaining firm on this one saying they won't be offensive
9:07 am
weapon re sent from germany. what he has said though, is that should that be an invasion of ukraine, that there would be serious consequences of from nancy's also said that journey will continue to send medical aid to ukraine. it will also continue to step up. it's ariel surveillance for nato based out of bases in romania. meanwhile, of the senior political figures in germany have been talking about what's going on . market loda, who's the leader of the states of bavaria, said that you must negotiate with russia not as an enemy. we must reject aggression and avoid escalation. nobody wants a war in europe. in doing so, the territorial integrity and independence of ukraine under international law must be respected, but constant new threats and never tougher sanctions against russia alone cannot be the solution. on the one hand, because sanctions have had little effect for a long time and on the other hand, because these new sanctions would often harm us just as much. meanwhile, in key,
9:08 am
as the ukrainian president vladimir zalinski has been addressing a gathering of foreign intelligence offices, he told them it is time for that particular branch to move from the defensive on to an offensive footing. we have learned to effectively contain and counteract external aggressions. i am sure it is time to move on to offensive actions to defend our national interests. while bell russian president, alexander lucas shank said he's been watching the situation closely that's unfolding and in response would be moving an army contingent of better russian forces to his country's southern border. it is all unfolding at the moment. i'll be keeping a close eye on what comes out of that e. u foreign ministers meeting in brussels. if there's any new information from there. i'll bring it to you here in our t. russia has vowed a response to the latest search in nato activity on this,
9:09 am
conducting its own naval exercise in the baltic sea, involving up to 140 warships. a form of foreign minister of india gave us his views on the crisis in ukraine. thomas, of all things, europe is not in control of its own fates right now as the us is that the will i think this is playing with the goal question is the expansion of nato to you? great. and if that problem is evolved, everything else falls in place and i am always surprised why didn't learn that sweden would remain out of natal during the whole war when the soviet union was very strong. and is one of the front of the world and continue to be outside the why can't there be an understanding around ukraine? why is the west, especially the united states pushing for games membership of natal knife on this? there can be a fundamental in understanding then i think the vessel what is happening is thought
9:10 am
to be unnecessary. and what is surprising is that europe is not in control of his destiny. it is united states, his domestic politics that are pushing for a confrontation of what you claim, not the thing is that in actual war is inconceivable. or will control the escalation, neither side gap. and it'll be devastating under was ensure. and i don't want to war. and i don't think the list really wants one either. so this kind of need less muscle fixing by the european, by needle in venoms the situation makes it more difficult to resolve. ultimately, you have to have political negotiations on the basis of equality and mutual security. and that is the core of the issue and go to the i mean, while british media outlets are increasingly blaming russia for alleged aggression
9:11 am
against ukraine, as, as the foreign office named a former ukranian, m. p as a pro russian turned the dates that the kremlin wants to replace the current president most goes, they is the accusations on nonsense the under keys, the u. k. government of intentionally escalating tensions is donald quarter, has the story. a big claim from the british foreign office, but not a shred of evidence put forward to back it up at the end of its midnight embargo. the tale of an apparent russian plot to install a puppet government and key of made its way across british headlines. and some of its details were more than fishy enough to raise a few eyebrows. confusion over you, kate claimed that potent plants qu in ukraine. foreign office claim of plot to install pro masika government and cave comes with scant detail. it's unclear what means britain believes russia might use to install a friendly government in chief. the u. k. government made the claim based on an intelligence assessment without providing evidence to back it up. the u. k. foreign
9:12 am
offices press release had more than a few inconsistencies take if danny mariah former ukrainian m. p, he cited as moscow's potential candidates to replace the current president vladimir zalinski, except more i of his on russia sanctions list on top of that his party failed to even past the last parliamentary elections. 5 percent threshold. this guy's not exactly poised to take the country by storm and seizing his property. sure was an interesting way of appointing him head of the future occupation. you have made my evening. the british foreign office seems confused. i've been under russian sanctions since 2018 due to a conflict with victrum advert shook. my family's assets are frozen there. how the united kingdom, secret services and foreign office can square that with russia supposedly wanting to make me the head of an occupation government. that's the question for mr. bean. london's not just spreading questionable stories about modern ukraine though the
9:13 am
day before this story broke and added to the hysteria of russian invasion fantasies . the u. k. foreign secretary lives trust gave a speech, praising ukraine for its resilience against invasions of the past. we urge president painted to desist and step back from ukraine before he makes a massive strategic mistake. ukraine is a proud country with a long history. they have known invading forces before from the mongols to the tosses. unfortunately for trust though, she also demonstrated a lack of understanding of the regions history. the mon goals and tard hers were one in the same invasion force, often referred to as the tar mom goal yoke. so when she says from one to the other, it's not exactly clear what's in between for russia diplomats mistakes like that are both laughable and disturbing. comical as these are now is not the time for laughing. we're witnessing the actual professional level of people who alongside making absurd statements, a providing ukraine with lethal weapons,
9:14 am
increasing their own military presence that russian borders and encouraging care to further undermine the minsk agreements. we have to look at the record and the frustration, challenges, services, and how they the news. we had the debacle about the iraqi war and the president weapons of mass destruction where you had fish in challenging services alleging that the syrians have chemical weapons when in fact resilience alas, found them in class. and then recently we've had a terrible example of the ritual for my son, which are position, childhood services, didn't know what was going on. and i a full full ration to come. and you have to look to what, you know, what is actually in versus interesting. graduation tries to have stability in the
9:15 am
crime. always, there are certain trust are neutral, the train, which 399 g one. so 2000 and meanwhile, authority in the self proclaimed republic and the don't boss region claim kias has deployed heavy rocket artillery at the border. that says they say more than a $100000.00 ukranian soldiers on currently stationed in the area villages and towns and the republics have done yet. and lou ganske have been shown for years from the other side of the border with thousands of people killed. i can to change that to this county, but there are times when a company to go to the shooting. if i'm next my house fall on my way to school under a shot. i run home. if i'm near school,
9:16 am
i can hide in this cool basement. you need more than i was born during the war and maybe i will die in the war. i don't know how to far of it. it's painful and insulting. you go to bed and wonder whether your house will be destroyed me. ah, jewish. there are no shells flying here. you walk carefully, you run the household. what else can we do? first begin. every day they show us the heat in the village. i . people are suffering. many of them have been naturally caused by the fighting. my husband died to the throne during the filters. my son died in 2015 in combat.
9:17 am
ah, yes, we can make found a julianna's sanchez want to bid to ask the u. k. supreme court to review a previous high court decision to extradite him to the us. he's wanted by washington on charges of espionage or the shoddy would star stephen now reports from outside. the court. unison has been granted permission to take his case to the court. of course, that means that he can now appeal to us extra addition decision that was gross. you don't the end of last year. we start with a much decision whether court or rule to overturn a previous decision. not extra right? during the song on the basis, it would be oppressive, considering how high a risk of suicide he may be if he was sent to the united states and held in cost center throughout the year. last year, the courts change their mind following
9:18 am
a 2 day appeal. as the u. s. offered a packages, assurances to the fact that he would not be held under maximum security conditions . in the last few minutes we did hit got announcement, and indeed morris, who is the partner of the sergeant child this as a victory. what happened in court? today's precisely what we wanted to happen, but we are far from achieving justice in this case because julian has been incarcerated for so long and he should not have spent a single day in prison. as long as this case isn't dropped. as long as julian isn't free, julian continues to suffer for almost 3 years. he's been in bell marsh prison, and he's suffering profoundly day after day, week after week, year after year. we also heard from the, with the lead editor and chief says, again, this is a school victory for the course. eunice, i'm still remains behind the present, the last prison. what we need for this case will be dropped entirely letters. so
9:19 am
that is, that is the only real victory for or for journalism. but for julian, this is of course of the pro long incarceration is already been for more than a 1000 days and belmont prison. we've always been protesting vigorously. the fact that after the united states lost in the lower court, they were allowed to, to submit the so called up. so assurances with it a general purpose perspective. this is just absurd since the ruling in favor of the united states. some months ago, i saw just team on the high court directly behind me to allow this case to be sent to the supreme court. now not all cases go to the supreme court. there must be an all people point of law, and the case needs to have a public importance that now has been deemed a public importance in the sanchez team. we're arguing those implications for the future of public interest reporting and the ability to defeat politically motivated
9:20 am
cases. they argue that this case is absolutely politically motivated. we look throughout the year last year, all of these reports of the cia plus to kidnap kill assassinate, a song spy on him. while he was hold up in london, ecuador, and embassy. they argue this deems it a politically motivated case. and as we well know, under the u. k. u, as extradition treaty, nobody can be expedited on political grounds and that is indeed enshrined in that law in that treaty. then, of course, on the grounds of future reporting, many of us on just supported on and did a defense. they argue that the united states is simply making an example of june assange for revealing these legible crimes of documents relating to the war in iraq and afghanistan. ah,
9:21 am
a with ah . so what we see now is a decade long soccer, illegal, labyrinth of horror story a fit you in a song. well, he goes through, back and forth, various court systems, here in the united kingdom. all of these protests is when they heard that announcement some few minutes ago. they all are opted into child saying free, free a junior massage. of course,
9:22 am
this isn't the end. he's still behind balls and it's still a long way to go for doing a song to try and fight against expedition to the united states we spoke to want to contribute to richard med has to, has been closely following the hearings. he thinks julian songs has a strong case full, the supreme court. we have to be clear. it's not guaranteed that they'll take the case. i personally think that they will because this is a very important point of law, is basically is the united states, the requesting state allowed to provide assurance as after its last the case, you know, there, there being a sore loser, effectively because julian is on one, is extradition battle in january 2021 fair and square. and then the united states provided assurances afterwards. they spend weeks arguing that you know, special administrative measures and these horrific conditions that they're going to put them in are fine. you know, they, they, they weren't convinced that this is the right way it's thing to do. and then once they lost the case there, they started providing these assurances. and this is what needs to be determined by
9:23 am
the supreme court is can a requesting state in an extradition give assurances to an appellate court to us to an appeals court that were not given that were not provided in a magistrate support. so this isn't just important to julian assange, it's important for all extradition, and it is 100 percent relevant to british common law and to the public. and we have to keep in mind that even if julian does end up free, he's not safe and other jurisdictions. if he steps foot in france or germany or anywhere else where the u. s. has an extradition treaty, they could again start a new thing. so i really can answer that question, but i certainly hope that the supreme court will do the right thing. vaccine mandates have been causing havoc in canada. it's been hit by supply chain disruptions due to a shortage of truckers. off to a new job mandate took effect applying to drive as crossing to and from the us people flooded twitter with images of empty shelves all across canada. but one m p
9:24 am
was quick to rebuff. claims such a supply good christ if exists, saying he's personally seen, no evidence of any sort, just anywhere. not only is this picture not from canada, but i've been to grocery stores in my community and i've objectively observed no empty shelves. this is just another example of conservative misinformation and fear mongering for political gain. liberal members of parliament saying there's no problem whatsoever. i went to a grocery store and look how been planted, plentiful it is, there's no pumpkins and i just had to retweet images that my own brother sent me from ontario to the effect of who are you going to trust me or your own eyes. you can feel it everywhere, although from what i'm told it's sort of worse outside of the big cities. when in response to the mandate which prevents on vax on partially vax truckers from crossing from the us into canada without to 14 day quarantine, hundreds of canadian dr. hasn't begun a so called freedom convoy, a johnny from vancouver,
9:25 am
2 also are in protests against the new rules. and history groups are saying the restrictions could. 4th, $16000.00 truckers off the roads with some even ready to quit that shops. while there is reportedly a modest optic of drivers getting vaccinated, at some companies, there are substantial reports of higher than normal turnover, and others declaring their intention to leave the industry over the impending mandate of the border. the canadian transport minister has defended the measure saying the biggest threats to our supply chain is cove it. that is why we created the vaccine mandate for truckers that david fray hate again believes the mandate is only going to cripple the supply chain. 2 years into this we you know they have not imposed a mandate on truckers, they were essential workers. they were the heroes of the road for whatever minority of them don't get vaccinated and i don't know exactly what that number is. they have a pretty solitary profession to begin with. and so to pretend that the and that it's the vaccine maybe that are going to save the supply chain as opposed to actually
9:26 am
cripple it. it's intellectual dishonesty if not overt dishonesty because even if you're double vaccinated and you get sick because you could still contract the virus, we know that you still have to isolate, even if you're double vaccinated as a trucker and become exposed, you still have to isolate lift the measures protect the vulnerable and let the healthy live a free and productive life, and maintain the very infrastructure that we need to deal with any crisis. not even this one, just to remind the world health organization phase cove it 19 vaccines are vital tool in the fight to end the global hon. demik. president biden has sponsor the wrath of environmental is soft naming jennifer written as a federal judge nominee. her law firm spearhead to the legal attack on a green activist who was involved in a multi $1000000000.00 lawsuit against the oil giant, a chef from lawyer and human rights campaign. as steven don sika was among those
9:27 am
who took to social media to express the outrage, breaking outrage to learn that biden has named chevron lawyer jennifer reardon to be a federal judge. she was paid millions at gibson, done to help jail me attack indigenous peoples and cover up a massive oil spill in the amazon bite and must align with planet earth corrupt. unreal that joe biden nominated the despicable jennifer riordan of gibson, done to the bench disgusting. another biden let down, he's nominated chevron lawyer. jennifer read in to the federal bench biden has no business nominating her unless he wants to slap the enviro community in the face. back in 2011, an ecuadorian court ordered chevron to pay out billions of dollars for dumping toxic waste in the amazon rain forest. but the u. s. federal court lay to determine that the ruling was in fact a product, a fraud. the guy who was involved in the case against chevron later found himself
9:28 am
this bars and under house arrest the white house. meanwhile, phase all those nominated are fully qualified to take on the judicial role. independent journalists, greg will put fears. jennifer written is unlikely to put the interests of people 1st given her role in representing corporate giants. normally those kinds of appointments do not get much attention. probably the people who made that decision the both biden and his advisors didn't even think about much. exactly what kinds of controversies she has been involved. she was very ambitious and in pursuing don's injure again and defending chevron obviously. and that's really where all her experience has been in our, in corporate law that is representing corporations. and so there's absolutely no reason to believe that she would represent the interests of the public and now that
9:29 am
she has a public position, biden is actually very, very connected to the interests of the oil industry in the united states. and there's a judicial appointment just confirms that he is very beholding to the oil industry in the united states. because under his administration, more oil drilling has been approved in public lands than even under trump. i would love to hear your thoughts on this story and everything else. so do get in touch by following us on social media and leaving your comments. them with a back in 30 minutes with the latest. see them ah, ah, ah ah, is the earth still large enough to satisfy the ambitions of jeff bezos? you know, it's got its tentacles in so many aspects of the economy. there's nothing that
9:30 am
amazon isn't trying to get into to step by step. the amazon empire has extended its grip on the world that was like a duck quacked, like a dog. so amazon looks like monopoly trays like a monopoly makes money like monopoly, behaves like monopoly. amazon is actually controls the market place. it's are really a market as a private arena, a world where a single company controls the distribution of all our daily products. and the infrastructure of our economy is loose the world according to amazon. ah
