plans to investigate alleged war crimes in the occupied palestinian territories. here in moscow live from the r.t. world news center kevin owen here for the half hour update thanks to choosing his 1st set of folks in the u.k. in the n.h.s. there are new to concerns over the state of the national health service after a woman died in hospital of cardiac arrest following what her family say was a 6 hour wait for an ambulance having broken a foot outside her home in south wales donegal b. was left lying on a freezing pavement they say until help eventually arrived the ambulance service has apologised for the lengthy delay but also emphasize too that the n.h.s. is under enormous strain especially at this time of year we are sorry that our response took longer than we would have liked on this occasion lengthy waits for an ambulance or a sign of pressures across the whole unscheduled care system not just in wales but across the u.k. . the next this will be
4:02 pm
a closer look at the tragedy the raft of challenges being faced by the n.h.s. right now. well we're hearing story upon story of the state of the n.h.s. and the crisis within it but this one really has shocked the nation after a woman died after waiting for 6 hours for an ambulance service after breaking her foot in a wales despite neighbors running around to providing her clothing and warm items she was then finally taken into hospital but later died of cardiac arrest here's the father's account of what happened. right she was waiting. told us that they were dealing with a heavy influx of calls and. when the. hour later again this time we were told they were doing their best but they didn't know when they would get to as you just heard the call handler did say that they were dealing with a heavy influx of calls plus they said they'd be there as soon as possible but the issue is they argue there's not just a situation within the welsh and
4:03 pm
h s but the entirety of the united kingdom we know there's plenty of allegations against the n.h.s. when it comes to issues of being woefully short staffed and woefully under a crypt when it comes to hospitals across the united kingdom but as we know this incident is not isolated and there are several issues within the n.h.s. . well the n.h.s. has long been held as a beacon of british society and of course has been in operation since 1948 but the
4:04 pm
issue of the crisis in the n.h.s. has led to many people becoming quite concerned when it comes to many people outside a london hospital of thoughts of the crisis with an n.h.s. . hospital just. my husband. and drive himself to hospital. 29. rob ford never had a problem the saying it's. too much people. this is not true there's a look like it when you come into the hospital you see the doctors will be looking out for the both what happens is the ambient people can't leave the patient until. they get seen so i think that's part of reason why it takes so long for your car for you to control and if you've got a call for
4:05 pm
a 1000000 population adding to the existing population every year and you're not building a new hospital you're not building new doctors for agrees it can't work. well this isn't the only crisis in scandal to hit the n.h.s. as of late as we know the heart of concerns is post details and negotiations particularly at the heart of concern is the n.h.s. now the leader of the opposition jeremy corbyn has accused boris johnson of going down the path of selling off the n.h.s. we've now got evidence that under boris johnson the n.h.s. is on the table and will be up for sale he tried to cover it up in a secret and this is the reality years above down negotiations n.h.s. is far for sale but truth be told there's a barrel of issues when it comes to the n.h.s. from the more obvious like cuts to services but also
4:06 pm
a growing population and ageing population evolving health care needs but one of the biggest most crucial factors at the moment is of course the increase of reliance says on the privatized sation when it comes to the national health care system so as you can see the seems to be an unending crisis. russia's foreign minister spoken out against the militant state's decision to impose sanctions on companies involved in the construction of the north stream to gas pipeline so he says the move undermines the sovereignty of european nations and he stressed that the project will be completed despite washington's attempts to thwart it. so it will be finished despite all these threats i am convinced that 1st of all the europeans understand their commercial interests in terms of ensuring long term energy security secondly of course they were humiliated and the words we heard from the german side show that our european partners still have their self respect. that will stream to gas pipeline once completed will
4:07 pm
supply germany with russian gas via the baltic sea and over a 1000 kilometers long it will be capable of transferring 55000000000 cubic meters of gas per year to europe that's enough to supply $30000000.00 households he goes down or makes planes an exam is the dispute in a bit more depth but also europe's defiance of what the u.s. is thinking about it right now. washington has weaponized sanctions it's official along with spending on nukes the army and cyber sanctions in the u.s. 2020 military budget it started in mission for the year the elimination of one of russia's gas trees into europe currently under construction the united states commands all our european partners who have taken a strong stand against north stream 2 and we demand others to do the same germany is totally controlled by russia because they were getting from 60 to 70 percent of their energy from russia and a new pipeline this pipeline if completed would make europe even more dependent on
4:08 pm
russian energy we don't want your energy supplies to be defended. to be fair washington has been backed into a cornea it's been offering and puffing over the project for years dishing out threats and blackmail but to no avail the threat of sanctions says seen key european contract all seize hold its operations nevertheless in an admittedly rare act of disobedience to the u.s. europe has been on russia's side determined to. the pipeline built as a matter of principle the e.u. opposes the imposition of sanctions against you companies conducting legitimate business people is a given federal government is against extraterritorial sanctions we don't approve of this practice we oppose especially extraterritorial sanctions that hit german and european companies and. washington has decided that even the closest nato
4:09 pm
allies don't deserve mercy if the us geo political and commercial ambitions are at stake why while it's easy follow the money russia doesn't ask much for its gas and nord stream too will be europe's cheapest way of getting the blue fuel and that's in stark contrast to the alternative washington is trying to force feed on its treasured allies across the atlantic shale gas because really there's only one economy that has to be strong uncle sam's even at the expense of its nato partners and the made in america stamp may be fancy but the markup for the freedom brand makes the whole affair outright economically stupid for the e.u. also washington's been trying to convince brussels that tightening its belt and enjoying a bit extra economic stress is well worth it because it's all for a good cause supporting a nother european
4:10 pm
a friend in need ukraine which had been left out of the pipeline deal or keep working together to stop the north stream to project that undermines your creates economic and strategic security we do not want our european friends to fall prey to the kind of political and economic manipulation russia has attempted in ukraine since it cast off its soviet shackles it would create another tool for the kremlin to use russia's energy resources to divide europe and undermine and destabilize ukraine it was almost like russia listened because hours before sanctions hit north stream 2 construction. when kir of shook hands on a gas transit deal so europe all out winds from the pipeline both economically and geopolitically seeing russia and ukraine finally touch base again and this statement by the u.s. envoy to germany hasn't aged well at all currently there is a lot of talk in germany about doing more for europe and we believe that when it
4:11 pm
comes to north stream 2 we have taken an extremely pro european position washington's crocodile tears are not fooling anyone anymore trying to maintain a compassionate face pretending it's acting in the best of intentions only to have itself exposed as a super bully rolling out one creative plot after the other or forcing its will on friend and foe alike it goes double for the reporter spokes person from nordstrom to told us to read that the project is essential for ensuring europe's energy security in that work will be finished as soon as possible we are several analysts as well for their views on the escalating jus political tussle over it. this. is due to the effect it's really sort of this already got very good it's a traditionalist remain called holy shit with the banks and so also the very sensitive equipment that us is sucked out in so something to do that. sort of
4:12 pm
switzerland's they try to avoid problems. sixthly it's the position of a specific audience. america doesn't have to be part of every deal that is made on the planet and there are important of course our most important and eyes are germany on the other hand they have no problems whatsoever to quote the allies under pressure which is not sort of an act of friendship the i believe that the americans were hoping that their pressure would work along the way at some earlier point and now they don't they realize that europeans are very firm they want to complete an austrian too they want to have the cheaper russian gas delivered to europe and only now are they taking actions because they realize that the game is lost and now they're putting on sanctions to make it difficult for russia and the europeans to close the deal the us are interested so all maintain
4:13 pm
a rift between western europe and russia because they need in the future blog even more than in the present they need. to have a close ally and did a highly disciplined approach us atlantic western europe at their site. israel's ambassador to the united states has launched a scathing attack on the international criminal court accusing it of diplomatic terror it's out of the organizations chief prosecutor for to pursue and announced on friday their intention to investigate alleged war crimes in the occupied palestinian territories. i am satisfied that there is a reasonable basis to proceed with an investigation into the situation in palestine war crimes have been being committed in the west bank including east jerusalem and the gaza strip the i.c.c. prosecutor's decision has turned the international criminal court into a political tool to do legitimize the state of israel this is
4:14 pm
a dark day for truth and justice bad advice and now after a few years of hard work and full and also providing all the necessary information about the crimes committed by the occupying forces against the palestinian people ok you point palestinian territories the decision was finally made today this is a great day for us we have achieved what we wanted. so the i.c.c. has the authority to hear cases relating to war crimes genocide and crimes against humanity israeli officials insisted that its got no jurisdiction to investigate alleged crimes committed in the palestinian territories because they say palestine is not universally recognized as a sovereign state either which way the court's top prosecutor now signalled her intent to look into alleged war crimes occurred by both mass and the israeli defense forces since 2014.
4:15 pm
show an jabber and as a director of the ramallah based al hunt human rights organization he told us all crimes committed in the territory should be investigated but that israel is not interested in the living justice for palestinian victims. for instance for the special robot wars. to get them to investigate they do to allow for the commission of you know the u.n. commissions of inquiry is to come to investigate this is the case who this is all these ladies dealing and treating very sincere doesn't torp only one lee and the palestinians all of the accept. that if there is crimes you know committed crimes
4:16 pm
like this the unions literally. go have to. remove those or something like that but why is that is there concern. that if they know well the palestinians called me to come is this the i.c.c. going after them. but i think they don't want for this mechanism and for this tool and for this sort of tea to function. in a momentous day for russia monday president putin officially opened the railway section of the strait bridge which connects the crimean peninsula to mainland russia russia later boarded a train for the maidan crossing traveling from crimea to the town of to man in russia's crescent region and then delivered to an address to the construction workers involved in what has been a hugely ambitious project reported from there to. a very different railway terminal a much bigger one the one in crimea is capital simferopol the one that i use store arrive at has a little kid to go to the seaside didn't see
4:17 pm
a single passenger train from mainland russia for more than 5 years all i can tell you that crime means did want a cheaper way to travel to russia to see their relatives they wanted cheaper goods holidaymakers from mainland russia the ones who couldn't afford a plane take it were desperate to get it as well well now they do have it we just saw the russian president vladimir putin inside the 1st train there it is right there to cross the railway section of the longest bridge in europe i guess we can call it a test. and once the test was over the 1st passenger train bound for sebastopol departed from st petersburg just think of it it will take 40 hours for that train to reach the crimean bridge it will cross the entire european part of russia before it gets to the crimean peninsula but just for
4:18 pm
a moment let's go back to talking about the bridge itself for you to understand what kind of technological marvel it is how much effort was put into what i just want to mention that construction workers had to endure more than 10000 hours of rough seas in the process well here are a few more facts about what the crimean the whole of russia were waiting for for so long.
4:19 pm
the people right here are celebrating because they do have a real reason to celebrate i can tell you that a few tens of thousands of railway think it's have already gone soon a train will depart from moscow and from other cities of russia as well as well because that is exactly the demand that i was telling you about and just wait for the holiday season to begin. there's been a landmark legal ruling in france the country's biggest telecoms company and its former c.e.o. were found guilty of moral harassment on friday in connection with a string of employee suicides back in the years to thousands of france telecom which has since been renamed orange has recently been privatized and was being restructured then that process entailed thousands of job cuts thousands more employees were placed in different sometimes degrading roles as a result of the stress caused by the overall 19 workers took their own lives the court ordered orange them to pay 75000 euro fine and sentenced the ex c.e.o.
4:20 pm
as well as 2 former executives to time in prison we heard from some of the victims' relatives. successful but we are satisfied and happy 1st and foremost because according to the extracts from the letter that were read out to us by the court what happened has been recognised as wrong as a reprehensible error. but i'm glad that this guilty verdict has been delivered it was a decision we expected it was very important for the victims to be heard i'm very grateful to my lawyers and to everyone who supported us it is highly significant that up until now a moral harassment has not be recognised as a crime and punished at the judicial level. friday's ruling was significant in that it was the 1st time a french quarter found a corporation guilty of institutional harassment but a lawyer for the company's former c.e.o. has said that he intends to appeal the decision. said mark weird sorting about interpersonal harris meant by a boss in relation to an employee i believe that this decision is completely and
