to school. algebra. to get them into british waters. the u.k. party leader nigel for raj accuses the french navy of illegal migrants directly into british waters amid a sharp spike in numbers trying to cross the english channel. or midday in vienna 8 pm in sydney on one in the afternoon here in moscow this friday may the 22nd welcome to r.t. international. the u.s. has announced it's repping up another major arms control agreement called open skellies raising fears that by close of security the treaty how the large signatories to make recall a sense flights over each other's territories donald trump so yes russia is to
6:02 am
blame for forcing washington are to claim that's not gone down well with moscow. that we have a very good relationship with russia but russia didn't adhere to the treaty so our job they are here we will pull out but there's a very good chance or make a new agreement or do something to put that agreement back together while many councils can support the americans the current administration and conceptually fundamentally have an aversion to any kind of control over american military activity especially when that control is exercised on or over u.s. territory solution with other countries follow the americans i doubt it most europeans seem to me to understand that the agreement has added value as an instrument of trust and instrument of predictability transparency and that is how we see it what we see in this time and time again from the top administration the president has never been shy in carrying up longstanding international treaties whether that's the paris climate agreement or the iranian new kit deal and very
6:03 am
often the pretext given is that the conditions have been violated by someone other than the u.s. of course and this latest story got america is indeed with joran from the open skies. very neatly fit. in as moscow's one attached to. unfortunately if it's the policy of the us administration i'm undermining old agreements in the sphere of arms control but it's not just russia is consigned by this of course the open skies treaty is a major a crucial one a state of the arms control i mean it ensures transparency trust and peace between staci 5 countries has that wanted out to conduct a nod to the qantas its flight each of those territories so the other case they can see this is a massive but trailed they see this as still a hugely beneficial course that must be kept alive at all costs it's probably on surprising that this decision was met by the international community with
6:04 am
a great deal of concern and of course they had that it could well deal and major blow to the security we reiterate our concern regarding the erosion of the us russia arms control regime i think we can stress enough that this arms control regime has provided security benefits for the entire its entire international community by constraining strategic arms competition ending search agreements without anything to replace them could result in destabilizing activities such as a dangerous new arms race leading to a possible miscalculation. i very much regret the announcement by the u.s. government that it intends to withdraw from the open skies treaty the treaties an important part of the european arms control architecture by withdrawing the united states would significantly reduce the scope of the open skies treaty and weaken the whole regime the us government's decision will take effect after 6 months during
6:05 am
this time we will work intensively with their relate mind and partners to make the us government birthing their decision well stateside somehow voices the decision saying america doesn't need open skies to get the same message at a lower cost. but that isn't actually widespread consensus. this administration moves forward with a precipitous you know lateral withdrawal from the treaty the united states will be less safe and secure. open skies remains our only ability to get direct access to russian airfields and airspace and every experienced operational commander knows all too well the satellites simply can't do it all so there is a lot of criticism from all sides flying around this new announcement there are also certain administers of barry as potentially happening there is some pushback from congress at the moment they might even need to sign off on it so will be following to see how that all plays out regardless this site latest move from washington really and not the example of donald trump seemingly undermining global
6:06 am
stability and opening up a new uncertain talked and both arms control and holes in u.s. russia the nation's well head of a crisis research institute mark almond told me that he believes washington's move code to stabilize the world. there is an assumption that you know her new phrase a cold war not just with russia but also a trip to china trying to see if it looked in the room from the point of view washington and that american economic strength we need to force the other side to a nicety can't compete military i'm not quite sure that that's what's going to happen so although the americans have some grounds for saying that the existing arms control agreements which they've been withdrawing from don't take account of china and therefore increasing your sleep in a world with 3. they are the same trying to actually i suspect making situation much less stable and their own interests much less secure. and
6:07 am
washington's foreign policies aren't making too many friends elsewhere in the world either where china hopes again the target in a move which could see it barred to u.s. stock markets or not a little later. there is a storm brewing a political one in the english channel or u.k. brigs and party leader nigel for has accused the french navy of escorting illegal migrants into british waters it comes after a sharp spike in numbers trying to cross the sea amid the covert 99 brick charlotte dip in ski has more. the battle of bull the control of the english channel or if you prefer a lot more she's been raging between britain and france for centuries for things that really just go out a bit hotter the leader of one british political party has accused fronts of persisting with an invasion of illegal migrants what we know. is that
6:08 am
a bridge naval vessel has been saved it's called safe but now the breadboard says to get it in the british borders they're better off. that accusation comes at a time when illegal crossings are on the rise more than $1500.00 have already been detected attempting to reach a shores in the 1st 5 months of the c.a.a. that's getting close to the number of the entire it's really trying to back in 2019 years almost haul off of the arrivals since the start of the u.k.'s lock down at the end of march as fewer trucks were crossing in between the 2 countries migrants have now turned to the sea many of those trying to cross our parent the unaccompanied youths what we used to see was that those young people would come through lorries and that was the typical route now what we've seen is these unaccompanied young people are in the boat nigel farrar she says the situation is
6:09 am
outrageous so the big friends and i will battle now has gone a done the job they brought a school to that little being here on the left there into british borders they've now left their own rib of the big vessel just to make sure they're safe until the handover to the border falls however there is plenty of evidence to show that french patrol boats are in fact stopping migrant vessels from leaving french waters last week 17 migrants were rescued at sea and brought back to the port of cow. a buy a patrol boat that's already had quite a busy year there are also ongoing discussions between the u.k. and french government sister how to deal with this issue the brits want to bring in new legislation which would mean that any illegal migrants that apprehended on the sea or even on the land will be deported back to france meanwhile the u.k.'s home secretary pretty patel has admitted that the french don't have the easiest of jobs
6:10 am
at the moment we're using drones we're using helicopters we're using night vision goggles you name it we're using it the issue that we have is that the amount of beach pieced that is being patrolled is the best in france and this individual's the criminal gangs are using all sorts of tactics some covert some other ert more than 10 people smugglers have convicted and imprisoned since the beginning of this year but as long as there are desperate people who can pay them they will continue to carry out their illegal trade whether that stuffing migrants on to or into the back of refrigerator trucks what doesn't change though is that people's lives are always being put in danger geology or t. harris. charlot also contacted the french interior ministry for its reaction to the
6:11 am
issue any response r.t. receives we will of course bring it to you. the world health organization has reported the highest number of confirmed corona virus cases in one day since the start of the outbreak last year that is the number of infections globally surpassed 5000000 the countries with the most confirmed cases are currently the us russia brazil and the u.k. and while the race for an effective treatment is on the w.h.o. has warned against the use of the anti malaria medicine hydroxy chloroquine which has been targeted and used by president truman. lot of good things have come out about the hydroxy a lot of good things have come out you'd be surprised at how many people have taken it especially the frontline workers before you catch it. the frontline workers many many are taking it i happened to be taking it i happened to be take it.
6:12 am
where. the w.h.o. was recommendations seem to have fallen on deaf ears in brazil where the government has recommended the use of the drug to treat co but 19 patients led to queues at pharmacies across rio de janeiro causing a drastic shortage of stock the country has been hard hit by the virus with more than 20000 deaths attributed to it. we heard from dr margaret horace part of the covert response team about the progress being made in the fight against the fires. testing tracing tracking treating the full payload you have to know where your virus is you have to know who's got it and you've got it we have to separate those people from the healthy people people need to be aware that they need to identify themselves as potential risk so it's not just simply having teams it's also having the community

larry aware of what's going on and how they can help. and antibody 'd test gives you a number and it says you have got this level of a particular antibody and there are 3 different types of anybodies one of them tells you you've had it recently another one says that you've developed cell phone a longer lasting response to it but what it doesn't tell you is whether the longer lasting response will protect you from the 2nd in fiction. that really needs to be used all the time here is. that slowly and gently you test the waters you try different things and ensure that when you've tried different things your limiting the crowding and you are absolutely obsessional about the hand hygiene absolutely obsessional about there is fear trip protection for a time a new thing is planned like opening schools all those things have to be put into consideration. we know it came from the horse you bet but we

6:16 am
16 minutes into the program you're very welcome back washington has accused china of seeking a geo political and economic confrontation with the u.s. in a scathing policy paper that also singles out beijing for its quote authoritarian moves the document puts another dent in an already battered relationship with some saying it could bring about the start of a new type of cold war. has been delving into the. the anti china hysteria is growing latest move is the u.s. senate approving legislation that would ban chinese companies from being listed on u.s. stock exchanges and raising money from american investors i would not turn my back . on the chinese communist party. if they were today's day had
6:17 am
they cheat and i've got a bill to stop them from cheating us leaders blame china for the coronavirus arms latest tweets go as far as accusing china of mass killings around the world this while china has just ledged $2000000000.00 to the global efforts against the pandemic open to increase international cooperation china will provide $2000000000.00 u.s. dollars over 2 years to help with the covert 19 response and with economic and social development in affected countries especially developing countries want u.s. leaders slammed the move saying it was not enough china's contributions to fight in the pen demick are poultry compared to the costs that they have imposed on the world this plague has cost roughly $90000.00 american lives more than $36000000.00 americans have lost their jobs since march globally 300000 lives could be as much as 9 trillion dollars according to our estimates cost imposition on the world by
6:18 am
the chinese communist party failures as rhetoric gets cranked up phrases like cold war being thrown around a look we are really on a cold war footing when it comes to dealing with china and other things we can use in foreign policy sanctions and other things diplomatic economic i think we're entering a new cold war in many ways to be honest in call that call this what it is and that this is the start of a new cold war i don't want to have a cold war with china. i would rather see us. work together. for the common good. of the planet earth. and we traveled that had morphed out real well us media seems to be following the same script speculations about how far this will go keep popping up some say this will be disastrous for the global economy others are placing bets on winners and losers chinese leaders in turn are saying that they want peace dialogue even to millions and. both sides benefit from cool
6:19 am
creations and stand to lose in confrontation decoupling and deal includes not so williams. the us to discuss the end dated cold war mentality and 0 something can do they calls are falling on deaf ears in poll shows that one in 3 americans now use china as an enemy instead of a global community unite to defeat them and demick we're now seeing blame and polarization rising very quickly the stereotype in a certain sense where china is this evil genius that is capable of creating this this pathogen that invades and destroys america and trump even characterizes a as an attack that eclipses pearl harbor. but at the same time you know this is contrast to a narrative that china is unable to china didn't do a good job managing it and get this combination of evil genius and
6:20 am
completely inept illegitimate government is really just operated opportunistically trying to exploit any kind of negative narrative that can be imagined and promoted as a conspiracy theory by lee you know to distract others from failures in these cases that's his central operating principle is to blame others although i don't think we can really have a cold war like before i think people are imagining it and pushing us toward something like it. so it's deeply worrisome. well the pun deming has brought about much change around the world and it seems that applies to people's thinking as well a new study has shown a sharp decline among germans who think it's more important to have close ties with washington and beijing moreover according to the survey more people know a prioritized relations with china compared to last year the figures also reveal germans are divided equally on whether
6:21 am
a close relationship with beijing or washington is more important the findings come despite repeated claims from the trumpet ministration stating the corona virus originated in a. preview seen anything at this point that gives you a high degree of confidence that they would have instituted was the origin of this virus. yesterday we don't have certainty that there is significant evidence that this came from the laboratory the statements can both be true i've made them both administration officials have made them they're all true we have a lot of information and it's not good but you know the worst of all whether it came from the lab or came from the bats or keep it all came from china. a recent german intelligence report reportedly casts dollars on america's claims it say's the accusations were a deliberate attempt to divert public attention away from mr trump's failure to hunt all the crisis. we decided to find out for ourselves what people in berlin
6:22 am
think about washington's current political course. it's great to stroll so mr trump to the 1st other handling it at all. 3 countries doing things the right way at the moment this thing vic but i think it's too late it's speeds we handled it better than they have to sort of universe started out catastrophic leak and in the end they are only looking to someone a brewer to blame instead of tightening the problem themselves. no no no no there are no arguments and no knowledge for that it's just that he said is that she now has had to try to use my goodness to kind but you have to stick together and not china. we have to look at the united states response as well because that has been lacking but it's also our job to look at what china did do in india investigation an independent investigation but to totally plame china i think it's
6:23 am
it's not enough i don't think the question of plame is of any use for anybody. i do think it's possible but i don't think it's like that i don't think they did it on purpose and i don't believe that if anybody would tell me that's the case i wouldn't believe it because i've heard otherwise on the news. so you know from a liberal to solve from the wire that it was there is no proof at all that it happened this this time. the end of weeks of lockdown and a punishing early heat we have has seen thought of people in israel head straight for the coast despite all beaches reopening this week the threat from cobra 1000 is still very much present in the country paula sleep has been looking at the dilemma facing the authorities. it's scorching hot here and the beaches of tel aviv are finally opened after 2 months of being shut down because of the coronavirus but even when they were off limits people still came here the government is however
6:24 am
insisting on safe distance images. it's impossible just impossible i think it's possible bad thing so the people don't do it anyway. i don't know with stripes late you know the police like. nylon make stripes maybe you can might divide the beach into areas i think it is possible i do think though that it can be a little difficult especially with people sitting so close to each other what can be nicer than having lunch off to sunbathing well for the next few days cafes and restaurants are still closed here but when you open tables will need to be at least one and a half to 2 meters away from each other and customers will have a temperature is checked on entering as for eating but one israeli company has come up with a unique way to do that while wearing a mask you know we use the mess when you want to it's.
6:25 am
this is the simple mask. is. just you push it and it's open when you put in before. masks or what the clue. masonically or using all of them give you the protection when you. public loose after a dramatic drop in the cases of coronavirus israel is finally. it's economy but with at least one in 4 israelis jobless because of the pandemic the fact that the country's opening up is coming not a date. before we
