1:00 am
ah, a you just come out and say this and expect us to to believe it without you showing a shred of evidence. that is actually true. the state department spokespersons grilled by journalists refusing to provide any evidence for us claims that russia is preparing a false blank attack as a pretext in dating. you cry 6 children don't kill them in heavy fighting in northwest syria, while president biden hales. the skill and bravery of us commanders claiming that they kill the leader of islamic state at the same time in the same location. also, western media takes aim a beijing with a host of accusations this major power. boy course the opening ceremony of the winter olympics, which is about to get underway in china and also on the way this military maneuvers
1:01 am
in valley roads are in full swing. and as you can probably see behind my back, there is a tank column that is rolling towards it, firing position with joint military exercises between russia and bella. busy race get underway with our correspondent reporting from the center with either very good morning, appreciate your company here or not internet. moscow accuses washington of fabrication after the u. s. alleged russia's planning to carry out a false flag up in ukraine as a prelude to invasion. the state department failed though to back up its claim with any evidence. one possible often the russians are considering and which we made public today involves the production of a propaganda video. a video with graphic scenes of false explosions,
1:02 am
depicting court corpses. crisis actors can be mourners and images of destroyed locations or military equipment entirely fabricate, fabricated by russian intelligence. we are not surprised by the new creative scenario outlined by the press secretaries of the u. s. department of state and the u. s. department of defense on february, the 3rd about russia's alleged preparation of an operation under a false flag against ukraine. this is typical of united states. the international community remembers the forgeries, the u. s. used for their military interventions around the world, including the well known vial of colin powell. well that via that was just refer to there was used as a prop when the u. s. made his case to attack iraq, which the white house claimed at the time was creating chemical weapons claims that later turned out to be completely unsubstantiated. meanwhile, the latest allegations are left, not just the russian side concerned. journalists that the media conference were also an impressed my lack of evidence. what is the evidence that you had that
1:03 am
suggested that the russians are even planning with matt? and i mean, i'm not saying that they're not, but you just come out and say this, and they expect us just to believe it without you showing a shred of evidence that it's actually true. other than when i ask, or what anyone else asked what the information you said, well i just gave it to you, which was just you making a statement. we do so we do classify information only when we're confident in that information. if you doubt, if you doubt the credibility of the u. s. government, of the british government, of other governments and want to you know, find solace and information that the russians are putting out. that is, that is for you to do what we now have us intelligence officials who are coming forward and saying that russia is planning to develop a propaganda video. now, the state department spokesperson was pressed on this specific evidence supporting the video claims. ned price said that once the white house is sure this information
1:04 am
is accurate, then they will disclose what evidence they have. now, there has been a barrage of headlines and accusations from western leaders against russia over the last several weeks. and russia has responded with com to many of these allegations . now at this point, we've got kremlin spokesperson dmitri past gob who has pointed out that there had been just been so many claims over the last few weeks and most of them and all of them really have not added up to anything, were turned into anything that could be proven will even key of now says that the situation on the border is not as tense as is portrayed by the western mainstream media. we spoke with investigative journals, dave lindell fu, says us and simulations of a false flag attack are laughable. i had to laugh when the, the, the spokesman was saying, you know, when we released these intelligence things,
1:05 am
we are always, we always wait till we're sure. they've released a lot of stuff over the years. and in recent years and months that's been brazenly untrue. and, and that including, you know, during the attempted counter cruise against the maduro government in venice. well, it poignantly false from the u. s. intelligence agencies. so for them to say that is just laughable. meanwhile, despite the sense of urgency, the white house is trying to create with the false flag allegation, the state department spokesperson also said limited in, hadn't made any decisions about war yet. at the same time, the u. s. is now making a point of stressing ross is supposed invasion is no longer deemed imminent. that word imminent is one that's been used frequently. in the last few weeks. putin has a lot of options available to him. if he wants to further invade ukraine, and he can execute some of those options, eminently when we said it was eminent,
1:06 am
it remains imminent. but again, we can't make a prediction of what decision present putting will make. we said he could invade at any time. that's true, we still don't know these made a decision. you're not describing it. i haven't. and over a week the white house, we did not use the word imminent in terms of invasion, that perspective change at all. so i think there's been some confusion around this because we've always been consistent that in so far as we know, vladimir putin has not made a final decision. so until and unless he makes the final decision to end date, this will not be imminent. one of the major reasons that jen, saki has had to walk back the word imminent regarding a possible russian. they claimed russian military invasion of ukraine. so lensky was, i had a press conference at and said that this was counterproductive to the interest of
1:07 am
ukraine. it wasn't about to happen. and so i think that the us and the white house looked completely deranged and out of place. and this kind of, this kind of disconnect between the us and its allies, makes for the rest of the world to ship back and, and dos everything that the us is doing. and it makes us look more and more adventurous and reckless. unicef, her said that ally, 6 children died at the time, the u. s. conductor, the special operation in northwest syria earlier president biden said the leader of islamic states had been eliminated by that mission. and the pentagon, as acknowledged, at least 3 civilians were killed. his article responded right against the half a dozen children killed as well as 4 woman locals have described these speech battle that took place one a m,
1:08 am
just after midnight syrian thought. and that lasted for hours in which, presumably these half a dozen children as well as for women, were killed as well as the leader of isis. a boy, abraham, me, i, she, me, i crazy. she locals, the squad how helicopters hovered in the air. soon as i left them, there were helicopters flying at low altitude, about 4 or 5 aircraft. and more than, you know, then we saw soldiers landing like that. the soldiers targeted a house near where i live. the house was surrounded on the slope through loudspeakers telling people to surrender or the house would be destroyed and then then the fighting started near or inside the house fence. after about an hour under the helicopter, carried out 4 or 5 machine gun attacks on the house, mckinnon came on a lawyer preparing to go to sea. and suddenly we heard wound in the sound of helicopters, johan my, and went out to see what was going on. she found the sky totally red. they asked us through the loudspeakers to go out. we didn't at 1st, then we went out, they searched us in,
1:09 am
handcuffed my father. they asked for our names and welcome you about our neighbor. we said, we don't know anything. they asked us to move to the neighboring house and started rating our so one to one in the united states says that he detonated a suicide vest while together with members of his family. we still have new and verified information as to how will these children perish? these the civilians as well as women, whether it was american missiles fired by helicopters, small arms, far by us, special forces in the ground, or indeed these suicide vest. what we know is that these casualties have occurred. multiple sources of said this, including unicef. unicef confirms that at least 6 children were killed and one girl was badly injured over night in the border town of at my, in the north west of syria due to heavy violence. despite these are reports of in casualties. we have heard a prison biden tell audiences about the strife which he called. precise forces
1:10 am
carried out the operation with their signature preparation of precision and i, directing the department of defense to take every precaution possible to minimize civilian casualties. this information about civilian casualties, while tragic comes at that, especially bad time for, for biden, who's administration has been rattled by, by calls for resignations, as well as accountability following the, the deadly drone strike in afghanistan. in kabul in august. and just a week ago, lloyd austin, the secretary of defense, had, are ruled, had issued a call for the pentagon to form rules to do more, to prevent collateral damage or will civilian casualties. because he says that doesn't represent that the values of the united states or its partners. and he called in the pentagon to come up with concrete measures on how the pentagon should conduct war whilst minimizing civilian casualties. we spoke with juliet
1:11 am
tumor, eunice, s advocacy and communications chief in the middle east, who told us that the surgeon fighting is taking a dead little, especially on the most vulnerable when we have seen an escalation and violence and bad area. and what this means is that children pay 1st and they pay most and if we compare the number of casualties of children during the month of january in comparison to, let's say, december last year, the number is so it's in the higher. and this has been the case since the beginning of the year, and this has got to stop children continue to be the 1st and most to pay in this 11 year long conflict. we call an old fight and all parties to the conflict in syria to stop the fighting for the sake of serious children and its future.
1:12 am
the while videos emerging of what said to be the helicopter, us commanders were forced to blow up during their right. you can see what is left of it. american officials denied the trash door was shot down and say, the crew is safe. we spoke with american author nicholas davis. he says, u. s. military rates of lead to countless civilian deaths. how can it be? were killing 6 children for the sake of killing, you know, one al qaeda leader apparently slamming state leader who will quickly be replaced by somebody else. so now this is, this is just her ethic and secretary austin trying to come up with new rules to prevent the killing of civilians by force. it's under his command, you know, way to the united states as being a war and all these countries in the middle east, in the greater middle east, over 20 years. you know, what is watches a little bit different today,
1:13 am
is you know, that in the last few months, we've had a couple of incidents where just because of the circumstances the united states has not been able to deny the fact that it killed large enough to just civilians and to think that these couple that we have recently heard about somehow unique in the fact that they killed civilians is, is just to be, would be utterly cry too much. the 2022 winter olympics get underway. invasion on friday, but the great sporting event has been mod, and control vesee. the some countries refused to send diplomats to the opening ceremony with the west, also accusing china of preparing to spy on their rustlings. alexia was jessica puts,
1:14 am
for decades, the international olympic committee claimed that sports has nothing to do with politics and all the games. all the olympic games are absolutely free of politics, but in the case of beijing 2022 games, it seems like it's a 3 way abas, where politics, sports, and cove, it come into one. now of course, we know about the political boy called several states and not willing to send their leadership into the opening ceremony of the aging when to 2022 games. those countries include, of course, the united states, also canada, u. k. and australia jumped in now in the latest news. also denmark and the netherlands refused to send their diplomats to attend the opening ceremony. and even the athletes who are going, getting bombarded by the press not to use their phones not to open their mouths and

1:18 am
mind about masks, i don't mind about the quarantine. of course, it's a pity for the athletes, but in my opinion, it's better this way than there being no competition at all. as a former athletes and the person who understands what athletes go through, i would be happy to wear space suit if i had to in order to compete. i would take any tests in the nose, mouth ear, wherever. as long as this sports festival takes place, it seems to me that athletes don't really notice all these tests bubbles and so on, because it's part of their daily routine to train and perform. the main thing is to be safe. and you can watch the full interview with alex, say you're good in our correspondent alex say, you're a shasky social media accounts. so to come for you this hour, russia strikes back planning a german channel from broadcasting us after berlin took our sister, cham. lottie tinney, offer on us intimate long
