the russian presidency alexina valley's latest a trick is to dupe the spies he says try to kill him into telling him how they did it russia denies this of course indeed president putin recently said that if you had tried to kill him the valley would be dead so who is the next move i'm phil gayle in berlin and this is the day. period high is now i found out you're trying to kill me. he's not worth poison english who cares about him if we had wanted to poison him then we would have completed. we have seen. in recent weeks and months. of persecution and from megalomania. i know where they live and where they work
5:03 am
and their real names their fake names and i have photos of them. also on the day the us congress approves a $900000000000.00 stimulus package to help the country get over the coronavirus so is it enough $600.00 is very insignificant these. are. not as much as we got last time obviously but you know something better than nothing. welcome to the day now the fallout of the poisoning of russian opposition leaders. has intensified moscow has now barred entry to officials from germany and other european states this is in retaliation for a u.s. sanctions against russia for its alleged role in trying to kill mr in the valley with a deadly nerve agent during a russian domestic flight in some x. in the valley has kept the world's attention on his fight with moscow by publishing
5:04 am
a recording that he says is a phone call with one of the russian security agents who tried to kill him moscow says it's a fake. the russian government reacted swiftly. just a day after the alleged phone call was released it called in the ambassadors of sweden france and germany and barred several of their representatives. moscow continues to reject all accusations that its secret service poisoned alexei navalny . back in august opposition leader no volley was dealt a deadly nerve agent on a flight in russia he was later transferred to the shanty to a hospital in berlin where he recovered western sources say russia's domestic intelligence agency the f.s.b. was responsible. posed as a government employee and called one of the agents involved with and supposedly
5:05 am
revealed details about what happened. the plane made an emergency landing the situation didn't develop to our advantage had the plane been able to fly for longer everything would have turned out differently. officials in your going to heart of germany's c.d.u. c.s.u. conservative parliamentary group is not surprised moscow has retaliated here's says simply not willing to do so it's not. the same in union. russia because russia is not cooperating developing and investigating but. for now the blame game continues as the kremlin denounces no volleys claims as fake and insists its accusers have not produced any evidence that it was involved that wouldn't you. take a closer look at this with jack met he's a french paula mentor and from president. public amash in october the council of
5:06 am
europe appointed him this special report on the poisoning of alexis in the valley he joins us from just outside paris and it's important to note that the council of europe is an international human rights organization and nothing to do with the e.u. so welcome to you as i understand it is your job a special report investigate the poisoning what we do with your report once your investigation is complete. now there is a tradition within simply of the conceit of europe to investigate each time the reason the clear indication that there is or which of the rule of law in the country it's so concerning recent russia is that being done recently it was in themself as a c. nation and no big deal because a case of not and so the aim is naturally to put lights on such a situation which is very very important and very i would say plus it of the legal
5:07 am
implications that's russia described wins swished have joined the conceit of europe so the 1st point is to establish the facts and of the facts then to see what other legal consequences of the situation. it's true that there would be put at the request to russia the belt the need for you to suggestion because many you know but for the moment mr levin the fight some complaints within russia but the judiciary did night to accept these complaints so we will look at it so you sleep and then at the end of the process we will establish a series of recommendation for the european court of human rights for the conceit of ministers for any organization we want wants to play you who want that but what is important probably to that is that for the moment the only institution which is cited to trigger an investigation related to the poisoning but also to the fact
5:08 am
that the poison was can be correct which is totally false beaten prohibited by the international no so this is a culture i will tell them ok so the if i can sort of condense show your answer it sounds like all your job is to investigate and to make as much noise as you can but it doesn't sound like you have and the power to compel anyone to to hold anybody to account. we are look at judiciary there is one which is part of the same account i use asian which is a european court of human rights of course you know it's less book but what you can do is also something which is to answer to the court of mr twitching because mr up with insights for the moment i would like to cooperate but you do not cooperate they say it's up to their friends went to the jungle and you know the probably pretty you know that rich i spot that they consider if you look so ins a committee which has given its mandate they are all sort of russian members of the
5:09 am
duma of the russian parliament so russia to forfeit its only geisha in relation with a body which is a lot of rule so for us we've got a way to make russia more cooperative and that ok now interestingly of course russia says it has a it had nothing to do with with this and indeed it says there has been no crime so given that no one has produced any evidence that russia played any part in it i wonder what you you think of the european union's actions in actually sanctioning russia for this. i think you and union has taken a stance because there was a breach in the use of. family and family that was something which was quite specific follow us we go beyond we called it was he to ation well very noble open and to a government been attacked and poisoned well as if it's you something which will be
5:10 am
and so for us as an example we will have a meeting we will have a committee meeting in the nation to form edition in the next january 19th where we will ask russia to be present by the authority then means we we that not need to be present in all the 2 constants c. i would say that there's too many of that i need right and also the question raised by the investigation the 1000000000 got to russians and we asked them of course to come with a pretty precise answers and that any evidence that has been gathered though seems to be circumstantial no one has yet produced a smoking gun no one has yet been oby to say. that nabil sha'ath was used and nobody has yet said been able to say russia did this you're absolutely right what we know for sure because there is an international would say regulation which has been followed in town wolf and the like this is
5:11 am
a poisoned we know that the international of the nation for kony currently puts us put us to report as well that's real the rebel let's respond germany homes with an import friends saying there will be dances and let me jump in in the midst of not a nice rhythm that he's 30 something which has been saved and i feel absolutely hopeless i mean it and they know that he's established novacek was used to the critical point know is who use it and there appears to be no proof that this was a moscow hit if i can put it that way. that's is true but what is interesting also is that we see that investigation we've got some names we've got some weaknesses weeks good some precise elements which a lot of us to call felt in questioning right lots of questioning is not in the only related to what happened to me to never leave but what this question was making with iraq based on that i'm reading of for us though we have since it's
5:12 am
a question we rate of course because you say that this has been alleged by the present with human sense of during the press conference and we have this this recording that alexei navalny says is of his conversation with an f.s.b. agent does anything that you've heard in that recording i'm presuming that you've heard it does anything and that recording help your investigation i mean if it's of course i think it's a very very important element you know i had a chance to to have the off the wrecking discussion recently starred not only on the last write last thursday a call a couple of hours and we went through all of the teeth a zulfi agenda during the very critical moments after the end of august ringback and let me see it that there are many open questions about how to put it into plaints and when was it. treated was it the day before what it's a day into morning what it is the plane what does ok this up pictures that we all
5:13 am
to raise and he's true is that with this kind of i would say. recording of these conversations that will trigger a chill questions from the mission which is for sure and having met i'm actually in a valley but what do you make of it. i found him very not to take and i found him in good shape even if it's difficult for me to have the. percept because it was a 2 hour session but i 3 still think i mean you know this person was very very shocked but let's be just discovered i think if you didn't imagine that there were 456 people around him not the usual surveillance that people away in the face of him a cultural and ready to ready to do it to attack him that was a big surprise to him and it was a profound shock and i think. it could other 2 consequences whether it would be you know make me make you feel we can defensive and i felt him strong in the front
5:14 am
seats that was impressive for me thank you for joining us a special rapporteur math from the council of you thank you very much we. how europe rolls out the biotech pfizer coronavirus vaccine in less than a week germany france austria and italy say they'll launch their vaccination campaigns on sunday after the christmas holiday in germany elderly residents of retirement homes will be amongst the 1st to receive the shots if they want. they run by ambulance although this is hardly an emergency dr lisa marie case her and her team have come to the retirement home to tell people what's going on with the vaccine. i'm going to educate you today about the covert vaccinations 95 year old teacher from layer center could be one of the 1st in germany to get a vaccination for the coronavirus probably soon after christmas today he has the
5:15 am
obligatory doctors talk about what it means so that when the vaccine is available everything can move faster. i said i'll do it so i'm not resisting. yes that is also important because we don't want you to die of covert or go into the i.c.u. or be miserable but of course we want you not to get sick from the virus. who gets vaccinated 1st that's a government decision to start with it's mostly people over 80 and health care workers the government has secured about 56000000 vaccine doses in its initial order that's not enough said the critics adding that the vaccine procurement is a planning disaster but various prime minister markers suter wants things to move quicker. we'll take what comes and we'll vaccinate as many as possible but we need a lot of the vaccine it's good that there was
5:16 am
a last minute order again last weekend because it has been established that more vaccine doses are needed the government has now secured 30000000 additional doses directly from the manufacturer but it may take a while before they arrive. must move quickly and according to the ministry of health there will also be more supplies in january so i'm confident that we have enough vaccine to be able to back snape as quickly as possible and. those who do not live in retirement homes are to be vaccinated in vaccination centers but how many vaccine doses will end up where is still unclear. how government is responsible for the vaccine procurement and it has signed the contract accordingly in line with the e.u. to some extent our hands are tied because we can only vaccinate with what we have and also with what gets delivered. only those who have made an appointment at the center will receive the vaccination in the future this will be done through a central system serving the whole of germany via the phone number of the medical
5:17 am
on call service in care home staff or making preparations and clarifying who the mobile vaccination team can vaccinate they meet with family doctors relatives and guardians it's extra work at an already busy time. this is not today's nets a lot of work we have 50 residents and must make sure that we have all the information on time when the vaccination team arrives then we. it started right away but the hope that things are getting better keeps the staff going and means that christmas 2021 might be one without the need for wearing protective suits. are in the united states congress has approved a massive new covered 19 belief package the $900000000000.00 deal provides aid to people and businesses hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic it's the 1st time in his pocket since march and follows months of wrangling between republicans and
5:18 am
democrats not of us think any of this legislation is perfect but a big bipartisan majority of us recognize the incredible amount of good it will do and we showed it to the president. the american people have waited long enough i'm glad for our country there we're now moving ahead together this bill is far from perfect nor is it the bill that we would pass if democrats had a majority in the senate it is a strong shot in the arm to help american families weather the storm for the 20000000 people who would lose unemployment benefits the day after christmas help is on the way let's get more on this from washington correspondent all of a solid welcome on this was a mammoth bill 5600 pages for an enormous amounts of money just talk assume some of the headline provisions and how much people will get. rifle yeah
5:19 am
bill and that's includes $900000000000.00 u.s. dollars so a big relief package that congress passed here on monday night it is the 2nd package by the way since the pen demick began so you mentioned there was an early a package of course earlier this year but there is one significant difference and that is that every eligible person receives $600.00 u.s. dollars in direct aid and that's only half of what people got in the 1st round and even this some of $600.00 u.s. dollars wasn't even clear until very recently so very tough negotiations here by the way that that sum of money also phases out if you earn more than 70 $5000.00 in annual income so it's certainly not a lot of money if you consider that millions have lost their jobs throughout the pen demick bought it is at least something people something that people can be looking forward to in the 1st checks will be paid out as soon as next week right
5:20 am
now we've become used to seeing republicans and democrats effectively refusing to work with each other but this passed the senate $92.00 votes to 6 so where does the spirit of compromise come from. now 1st of all feel that the democrats wanted more they wanted that this package includes 2 trillion us dollars well they could finally agree on with the republicans was $900000000000.00 u.s. dollars so it came short a little less than half of what was planned or at least according to the democrats initially by the democrats also hope that this is only a 1st step and that the biden administration would put another package together joe biden just spoke a little while ago also tackling that issue of course they are for and in light of those plans the democrats were willing to to sacrifice is in to find a compromise with the republican with the republicans in congress of course it is
5:21 am
also a somewhat risky approach because it's not even sure if that if democrats will control congress we as you know there are still these run off elections in georgia under way and it could be that if they don't win those elections that they're looking at a stalemate and that will certainly also be a problem for further stimulus checks and how people in business is reacting to this news. well the assumption 1st of all that any stimulus is better than no stimulus and it was a last minute deal it is a very urgently needed relieve that comes just 2 days before christmas and again the economy has taken a big hit in the united states $20000000.00 jobs were destroyed only half of those jobs came back through all the pandemic and then there is also a moratorium on eviction running out so families are losing their homes that's the reality really there is a lot of poverty created by this pandemic and by the economic fallout of course the
5:22 am
big question will be how much whole far will $600.00 a get those people that are affected economists say that it will buffer some of the economic downturn but that the whole the whole package will only last through march and then the less this is as you say this is the 2nd time the u.s. government has just given away massive amounts of money to help people in a country that often because comprehensive public health care is always some sort of socialist conspiracy so does this mean attitudes are changing or is it more of an indication of the shias size of the problem facing the u.s. well there are of course 2 approaches when it comes to those when it comes to those policies and it's a it's a divided country phil as you know politically the democrats traditionally want to help more they want to do more the republicans rather believe in a in a we curse in a slimmer state and want to hold back with regards to those packages but then again
5:23 am
the poorest are suffering in the united states and there's a certain understanding of both sides of the political aisle that something has to be done but of course the interpretation of how that something looks like again is different on both sides of the aisle all of a sudden in washington thank you susan. sports world football's governing body fifa has filed a criminal complaint against its former president sepp blatter and several of his associates fifa says it has found evidence of criminal mismanagement of hundreds of millions of euros for a football museum project blatter said mr blithers lawyer says the accusations are baseless so blatter headed feet 1st for 17 years he was suspended and later balance from. the ethics committee in a separate responded in case. we have the details from buck meadows from
5:24 am
d.w. sport welcome back so here we are again talking about mismanagement and money scandals so how did this latest one come about some coming with fifa doesn't it over this former slightly out of the blue despite the 5 years of scandals we've we've had. it was basic going back to when blatter was in charge of the 3 had this dream of open in this world football museum in zurich the home of fever and it cost 564000000 dollars and after he was kicked out fifa kind of audit it and looked at the figures and they felt that blatter had signed an unfavorable long term rental agreement above market rates and so therefore they decided that was suspicious circumstances and so they've now forwarded basic criminal complaint themselves to the swiss prosecutors now we don't know yet whether this was prosecutors will take up this case as a criminal case but it just is chaos i mean the the museum has been
5:25 am
a disaster from grace started open in 2016 lost $50000000.00 the director quit a few months after it opened visitors numbers did get better last year i have to say that although of course this year because of the pandemic they've been slumped again so kind of sums up fee for crisis after crisis. i'm liking this picture as well so buses surrounded by all this this cash these as a as i mentioned he's already been banned for a different set of allegations so how bad is it likely to get for him well it could get very bad because he was banned from region in 2015 and this was due to a disloyal payment that tea allegedly made to the former head of european football michel platini that was a 2000000 swiss franc payment and he said that was basically for consultants who were putting it down for him many years previously but didn't really believe that it was a bit suspicious of therefore they banned him now the swiss prosecutors are looking at that case as well it's been going on for 5 years we're still waiting to hear
5:26 am
whether he might actually end up in a swiss court and oversee it could get very much more serious for him especially if they take up this museum case as well we must say that he's a lawyer says he denies all allegations of wrongdoing in both of these cases but it just feeds into the wider fever scandal that we've had over all these years with you know vote buying for the world cup hosts and dodgy broadcast deals you know it stank back then and just keeps on happening ok so you've got the old boss looking at 2 different cases and the current boss infante me he's been accused of wrong doing i'm so where is this all going to end well yeah i mean infantino was brought in to basically clean up fee for after the blatter was it was phone out he actually had to open this museum as one of his very 1st jobs he wasn't very happy about it didn't look best pleased because obviously that was a kind of initiative and yes he has been accused in a completely separate case of having secret meetings with the former attorney
5:27 am
general of switzerland now he says what's wrong with that i'm not allowed to meet attorney generals just to talk about a big organization like fever which is have lots of legal problems i'm a will do in the future but a swiss special prosecutor says no you shouldn't really be having secret meetings of the attorney general the attorney general had to step down but it was of it. and then also sort of separately as well he's been accused of taking a private jets using fee for phones when he flew from suriname to switzerland in 2017 so it keeps on coming but as i say infantino denies any wrongdoing and for a pretty confident this will blow over but it's to startle just a off's state of these foreigners here. not was the day that was it that i was ever become especially continues on my roof i'm so. used to have got to use the hash tag that it was a slow. food
