[000:00:00;00] the tonight us president biden times the position american troops in eastern europe at a show of force against russia, despite nato's chief, admitting this, no certainty, all about whether moscow would invade to craig. the time germany swims against the nato tide but resisting sending alms to ukraine move, it's got the backing of the german public to according to recent polls, canada's prime minister brands the huge truck convoy. they are opposing the vaccine mandate is extremist by the growing drivers movement, a 1000 no spreading through the capital also.
5:01 pm
the good morning love from moscow. my name is kevin. welcome to us international world news at 1 am. so 1st, the us president biden's pledge to send more american troops to nato countries in eastern europe in the near future. early this week, the pen to get it all ready, put 8500 troops on standby for possible deployment. although at the same time, nato is back tracking on its months long claims that russia is about to invade its navy ukraine alliance chief jazz told berg now admits there's no certainty, but any invasion, after all is corrected, we are not planning to deploy nate to combat troops to ukraine, as long as russia does not, once again decide to use military force. oh, there's an empty while, there's no certainty about the the russian plants or maybe they have not made any final decision. for months, the usual suspects in the west have spurted out the same old hysteria,
5:02 pm
western mainstream media quite literally drew their own picture of reality with maps of an imaginary invasion from stultz and bic himself to west and officials. and it's media who constantly shrieked. an invasion was just around the corner conveniently, postponing their predictions even when proved wrong. us intelligence officials say russia could invade ukraine as soon as january, and that's because of russian troops that are massed on ukraine's borders were now to see russia could, at any point, want an attack and ukraine. but now even the ukranian president has brushed it off as just panic. or do we have tanks in the streets? you know that there is a feeling that if you're not here, if you're in england, germany, france, lithuania, there is a feeling from the media that we are to war. troops are walking on the roads, mobilizing this is not true. we don't need this panic. but hang on, doesn't this all sound a bit like what russia had been saying all along?
5:03 pm
yes. with alicia with risky figures. so it depends on the russian federation. then there will be no war. we don't want any wars, but we will also not allow our interest to be rudely trampled on and ignored. but it seems like even all that doesn't stop the wheels at that big bad sanctions machine rolling. the west prepares, crippling sanctions and anticipation of that same elusive rush and aggression. at this very moment, we have been very clear that if russia further invades ukraine, the united states is looking at a range of options with allies and partners to deliver severe costs to the rush economy, assessing potential spill overs, and exploring ways to reduce those spill overs is good governance and standard practice. but if anything, the ukraine crisis has taught us one thing, some western politicians who claim to prefer diplomacy and dialogue, are reluctant to abandon their own wills and step into a reality without russian aggression. we always accuse russia to,
5:04 pm
to be the aggressor, even if it was no, were reality of the wrong. that's for that's, that's the situation now. if russia, oh, will not be considered as an adversary of ne 2, they will be no joke, no object. he for the 2 and the united states will lose its supreme rossi in europe, and the object is to fragment europe and to torpedo any reset between western europeans on russia. and in order to prevent multiple r richie to emerge, then ukraine confirm friday. this received another batch of military aid from washington, 81 tons of ammunition were delivered in one of dozens of air transfers planned on the job. i'd as $200000000.00 support package, but not all nato members, united weapon izing ukraine. germany is refusing to send arms restart and is ruled out evacuating his embassy. the tube sang. the move would only add to tensions with
5:05 pm
more on it. or europe correspondent tough times to europe in diplomacy, he rem berlin, many of the decisions made by chancellor ola sholtes as government haven't been running on the same lines, his friends and partners in london, washington. the german foreign minister is also not convinced that as an immediate sign of ukraine joining the nato alliance, everyone knows that this is not on the agenda at the moment, including russia. the people of ukraine want to live in peace and security. men have been separated from their families for years due to the conflict into dumbass . that's what the matter is about. not an imminent entry into nato. another area where germany isn't following the lead of the u. k. in us is when it comes to the evacuation of staff from embassies and key f. berlin says it, we're just further to stabilize the situation on the ground and ukraine. of course, we continuously check the security situation in different places around the world, including in ukraine, like our new partners, we have currently decided not to reduce the embassy stuff in case germany has come
5:06 pm
under a lot of pressure over its refusal to send weapons to ukraine. in fact, it with some sections of the media into a frenzy, with some headlines, even questioning whether berlin is actually a friend of the u. s. at all, i observed with concern the situation in ukraine and the reactions of our neighbors from germany in the face of the threat from russia. it's immoral and hypocritical. it's driving a division line between west and east in europe. foreign minister bare bach used a debate in the bond. the stag, to further cement the government's commitment to the policy. seminar demand in that weapons be delivered urgently in difficult situations. you have to repeatedly discuss your action self. critically. we have to strengthen ukraine canonical and financially doesn't the 21st century and don't a certain with cannon's friends and allies are clearly not happy with berlin's decision. the german people seem to be ok with it. according to polling, nearly 60 percent of germans are quite happy with the decision not to send weapons
5:07 pm
to ukraine. senior figures within the largest party and the ruling coalition are keen to stress germany's role in attempt to find a diplomatic solution to the current crisis. now committed open wars looming right now in the middle of europe. not doing everything we can to prevent the military escalation of the situation. and of course, we do not deliver weapons to ukraine and about keeping the peace, lasting peace order in europe would not work with russia, but only with russia. it's clear berlin believes the diplomatic doors to finding solutions remain open. however, it's equally clear that germany feels that should they supply weapons to ukraine, their ability to keep those doors open would be impaired. peter all over all t berlin. this year. as human nature, members does man with weapons supplies to ukraine and hungary as refuse to host additional nato forces. the country's defense minister, adding that russian troop movement inside his own borders. person the toll
5:08 pm
necessarily mean mosca wants to talk to train. bulgarian officials meantime, admit the countries military may have discussed not allowing any more us troops on its soil and croatia said it would withdraw its need. so military personnel from eastern europe should there be a conflict between russia and ukraine. m. p. cherry, mariani chipping and scathing about europe caving into washington on anti russian rhetoric. video player mostly can get a w. stevie. this is real hysteria. i get the feeling that the russian army can be in paris any day if everything continues like this. what do you think the real reason? i think some people just need to regain prestige. first, the us, as we know, the laptop can stand in the most miserable way. second, nato, which needs to justify its existence. so i will also mention ukrainian, president zelinski was having a really difficult situation inside the country. basically, all these people need the pressure to build up though the same time. i notice that almost all the media repeat the same information over and over again. george,
5:09 pm
let's not forget that almost all of this information secret satellite imagery comes to us from one source in the us. of course, the united states is our best ally, but let's remember the way to stabilize the entire middle east because this very ally explained to us that there are weapons of mass destruction. there. it is very often necessary to state that the european union has no real foreign policy. and as you know, today, the position of the you on this issue is in line with the position of poland, romania, the baltic states. and they're very aggressive rhetoric towards russia. but other than that, the you as a diplomatic work, while the civilians been wounded by a crying, i'll be shelling according to officials in the self proclaimed the net republic in the east of the country. they say the fire came from mortars and tug donetta suburbs, including the village. we've seen these pictures from where this instance the princess moved him. please, did you talk a bit? you have happened at half past 7 in the morning when the man went on his back yard to clear the snow. he didn't expect that to happen. the resident was taken to
5:10 pm
hospital. now medics had taken care of him when the shadow takes place every day. people, us catch you up so you can tell you, he requested a response from the incident from the organization for security and cooperation in europe, which carrier monitoring missions in the region when they get back to us, tell us, but more will let you know more more to shutting has been reported in the nearby ton of your line of damaging civilian infrastructure. there's, you can see the footage mets ca, military officials say, gives forces use 60 millimeter motors, that's kind of important. that's nato standard caliber to carry out the attacks, the tanis will, than 2000 residents. we live in constant fear of nami assault. we are both nato and the crating defense ministry for comment. again, we've yet to receive response. the canadian governments mobilizing security forces intelligence services at the mass truck convoy as it hits the capital also. and now in a rapidly growing protest against vaccine mandates about $50000.00 truck is
5:11 pm
a thought to be part of the demonstration. protest is a furious said, needing covert jobs to bring in the us food, which canada heavily relies on they will in the restrictions, couldn't come. it was time either with food import costs up an astonishing 25 percent this month. a load and price inflation at a 30 year high. yet, ministers dismissed the demonstrators is extremists, the small fringe minority of people who are on their way to ottawa, who are holding unacceptable views that they are expressing, do not represent the views of canadians who have been there for each other. we've already seen people who are equating vaccine mandates to ushering in a new era of nazi germany. frankly, there's just too much from the leaders of this convoy which is not about freedom and certainly not about truckers. we have already seen some expressions which fall very much into the category of extremism. yet canadians are coming out in droves, waiving national flags, to show their backing for the rallies, a convoy facebook page. now it's more than a 3rd of a 1000000 members and almost
5:12 pm
a $1000000.00 in donations to we spoke to calling craig, who joined friends, driving with a convoy. he says, all different kinds of old re paper gone to extraordinary lengths to show their support. every area of the country that we drove by has people didn't matter the temperature, sometimes the low is minus 30 degrees, standing on the edges of the road, waving flags holding signs. they're upset that they're losing their freedoms. c through the mandy, i need to be very, very clear. it's not about the vaccine itself, it's about the mandate and the freedom to choose whether or not we have to take them. and that is what these ordinary hardworking canadians are here. they want to, they want their freedom store, local journalists, this is a sad irony than the canadian protest, as a heard more by us,
5:13 pm
by spelling musk than their own government would ship really case. he says more about power than health. so, so what you want to ask is, has supported this protest, and that's more, more support than we've seen from the political leadership in this country. which is really frustrating for the convoy. they told me frequently that they expect to political leadership in this country. both liberals and conservatives to either support them or at least listen to their demands. the mainstream media in canada had convinced canadians that we ourselves loves the vaccine mandate. but now that we see on the ground, how many people are coming out onto the highway in the bitter cold minus 30 degrees celsius in some cases, to wave flags and support this convoy. it's clear that the what we've been told about the support of action mandates isn't really true, but the government doesn't want to release the story that they've gained throughout this pandemic. they're dead set on keeping
5:14 pm
a iron fist in grip of power over the people. deciding what they're able to do, where they're able to go, depending on their medical status. well, across the pond in france, a 3rd, his outburst against the i'm vaccinated are also raising eyebrows for different reasons. for the paris hospitals, chief questioned whether they should even get free treatment anymore. alternate le, when free and efficient drugs are available, should people be able to renounce the vaccine without consequences while we struggle to take care of other patients in the hospital chiefs that he raised the question because he didn't want health care spending to explode. one days he put it because of what he called a responsible behavior. the discussion on it raging right now. we got the thought, some people, the french capital as she, i'm completely concerned since i have my 2 grown up children and young adults who are not vaccinated for free choice for all, for us to continue to care for everyone with the same conditions for all that's the given from and we can't give it up like that, but it chokes me that have been working for 40 years. so i've been contributing for
5:15 pm
40 years. imagine if i were not vaccinated. i still want to be treated like everyone else. that's the hippocratic oath. treat everyone, right? well, he's kind of right. the vaccine is free. you don't pay, so it's normal to get vaccinated. it's for you and for others. and in addition, you take the place of someone else in intensive care. i've been looking after code patients who end up in intensive care costs around 3000 euros a day and from the moment with stays and award averaging a week to 10 days. maybe more, you can do the math yourself. meantime, a controversial new vaccine pass is coming to force in the country, meaning that everyone over the age of 16 will have to be jobs to be able to get access to different public spaces like restaurants. and it's a city transport to get a better understanding of issues involved. we spoke so she ology profess robert good. she along with communicable diseases experts, barrett and can it. we just must not make a distinction between immunized and not immunized. they're all citizens and we
5:16 pm
treat them as equal citizens. we persuade, inform, educate, advise the people who have not been immunized and help them to make that voluntary decision to getting united just even if 80 percent of the population is fully immunized. that is 80 percent are not 100 percent immune. it is important to invest in prevention. prevention is cheap. prevention is easier. prevention is better why one of the things that we need to worry about are the inequalities that have been embedded in coded since the beginning people long had to pay to get access to the vaccine. whether that be driving a far distance, taking time away from work or friends and family. so there have been lots of cost that have been hit in that we really have under discussed. now we're moving into another realm where people, for reasons that may be illogical, maybe related to their health,
5:17 pm
maybe related to issues of faith or religion are going to be taxed for those decisions. and so i think that as our society start to move toward a sense of quote unquote normalcy. i think we should be looking also at the behavior of the people who are vaccinated are the rest of us behaving properly in order to protect one another campaign. a, so you k police, most of the powers in arresting a women's rights activist who campaigned against transgender inmates in women's jails. officers been detained. jennifer swain on hate crime charges over her posters and stick as calling for no men in women's prisons. i'm for warning about the level of male violence against women, but he's ready to statement saying they'd received complaints that the post is contained, abusive writing. they also rated swain's omen, confiscated a book critical about children being allowed to change gender spokesperson for the group for call, which probes whether or not police actions of violated human rights says offices in their view have gone too far. well,
5:18 pm
the activity i know about is that she put up stickers saying cervix, it's a woman, stan, and that one in 3 women were murdered by man. so no, i didn't find any of that offensive. it's a statement of simple fact because we seem to now have something happening in our country where a transfer beer is defined as anything which is reported to be offensive by anybody . and that is enough to make the police take action. obviously if she was putting up stickers and posters, which i think she's admitted, that could be criminal damage. it could be fly posting. these are criminal offenses . and absolutely the police have a right to investigate that. what they don't have a right to do though, is go and search her home and remove books, edited by perfectly respectful academics on topics of public interest. that's a very serious infringement of her article. 10 rights in my view. being time swaying, took social media than to argue that her messages went all ante trans at all. but
5:19 pm
more pro women lead that her thinking was being investigated rather than reactions . it's a much discuss issue, it's polarizing tooth. we'd love you to get involved with conversation if you want to check it out, t dot com. but sarah, furthermore, telling us that it would be safer if women's prisons did not allow transgender inmates. i think prison should be single sex. women are usually much smaller and weaker and not as fast as men and women deserve, therefore spaces where they don't have to worry about being attacked by men or simply spaces where they can just be within without male presence. and given that the majority of trans women do not make any alterations to their body, either she medication or surgery, i think single sex spaces remain incredibly important for women and are rightly protected by law. so when sex matters, it needs to be recognized and protected and to say that is not transfer big and people should not be investigated by the police were saying that, ah,
5:20 pm
morgan does made organizations or warning you box sanctions on the west african country of molly. there's a potential to trigger the worst in quality crisis in decades. the restrictions were imposed of the military government. the postpone planned the elections, but critics claim the suffocating the country reporting next shala dubin ski. the situation is it die as molly battles with the worst bound to food insecurity that it suffered in a decade? sanctions way, hard restrictions that include a trade embargo and financial aid being suspended were initially brought in by the economic community of west african states. but they are now being supported by you, and that is a step too far from more than a dozen aid organizations. many hundreds of thousands of persons displaced internally within money which in full narrow exemptions against the moments sharon goods. we have a lot of people and needed to run it every night. several 1000000
5:21 pm
a weakening as a result of sanctions that could drive more people down into digital situation. the sanctions have also sparked protests in the malia and capitol hill. so why have such a punitive measures been imposed on one of the wolves poorest countries? in 2021, molly was taken over by a military coup, which was led by the vice president to see mccoy, who then installed himself as being the main man. and initially the plan was to hold elections within the year. however, that pledge has since been rescinded. however, molly's recent history has been even more tangled in a military web with thousands of soldiers from european countries, mainly from here in france on the ground since 2013.
5:22 pm
ah mm. ah. paris has also blamed the worsening relations with berman co on the arrival of russian military contract, a wagner. however, that is something that's being denied by the molly and authorities who say that only russian trainers are on the ground to strengthen the operational capacity in the exact same way as european trainers have been there for several years. and it's the switches also got the e u in a twist where the wagner is or isn't present in molly,
5:23 pm
it certainly is persona non grata within the block. the activities of this group reflect russian hybrid warfare. they represent a threat and create instability in a number of countries around the world. all of this begs the question, is molly being partially sanctioned? because it has asked for help from russia. it is clear that almost 10 years of intervention by the europeans hasn't brought peace and security to the country and is morally, looks elsewhere for assistance. the e. u has hardened it stumps, pushing the country into more food insecurity and deepens, foolish, amazing crisis until besieged by our ministers in the population cannot leave the area. we also have issues of funding this you margin a crisis in my view has not been funded to, according to, to, to the needs last year and,
5:24 pm
and the stairs not getting good as well. the reality is that sanctions will impact the poorest the most. and it is the vulnerable in molly society that will really pay the price. challenge even ski r t. paris. less lighted up of it. finally, some fierce sailors sales. think it's fun footage to show you of this is a bit different. iraqi kurdish fighters demonstrating the ninja combat skills. ah, yes, snow. seen some iraq there. you don't see very often to you. well look at what they're doing. their instructors put some, a 180 male and female warriors to the test and sub 0 temperatures. one of iraq's coldest regions, dressed in the customer black head gear and their clothes, they practice martial arts, including jumps food roles and crawling in the slow, which will cause select some yellow in the snow. i don't. okay, well as i say, you don't see a snow in iraq, very often we bring a pictures and things
5:25 pm
a bit different as we continue the question more here on ot international thanks for watching. i will do that one with me heavy. no. this is james. all down through here, all in is the larry over here. so your camps are always a little nicer than this. this is evidence of absolute poverty, despair. people in our city and other cities all across america are living like this. were at the original eden village that opened up in 2018. and right now there's 31 homes on the property. it's a little over 4 acres with 31 homes and a community center. unfortunately,
5:26 pm
a lot of people don't make it out of edition more homelessness, like, i'm just really happy. it made it. oh, dad you with me in. ah, oh, it's an open secret that private military companies have been playing a role in armed conflicts world wide. u. s. government doesn't track the number of contractors it uses in places iraq or afghanistan, united states army and the military in general is so reliance on the private sector . i would call the dependency, but we don't know who's the on the ground presence of these companies overseas. we just don't out west and private military companies can in turn use so called some contractors from countries with trouble pass. the chances are quite good that they had also been child diligence processes. i was a child,
5:27 pm
as well as my job professional job is with the whole moment when full court is when you find that that, that with no flaw, minimum own wall shit. which going to be merciless killing machines. and now they fight and die in other people's was people carroll, lock one and a dead soldier or dead marine shows up in this country and we start asking ourselves, why did they die? why do what were they fighting for? nobody bothers stature about that contractors in to what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy. even foundation, let it be an arms race group is on offense. very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful,
5:28 pm
