9:00 am
there's a cheesiness of the they are considered the most dangerous of criminals. she's in a still all the off, 23 hours of the day. tell me that is long enough and it will give women on death row. russia's top diplomat think, just that kremlin critic could have ingested a nerve agent in germany or on the way there, but the kremlin spokesperson stressing that no one is willing to cooperate with moscow. on the cakes. we want to know the truth. so we said, if you have information that we do know is house, please share it with us. but no one wants to cooperate and also this hour the news that pfizer is coronavirus. the vaccine could soon be ready for release is giving hope, but mainly to rich countries. as it looks like for ones might be priced out
9:01 am
and armenia's capital is rocked by more unrest as fury over a peace deal with azerbaijan shows no sign of a fading all as refugees, blood from the war zone spoke to one woman about her ordeal. i didn't want to leave my home, but another siren my daughter said mom, they're coming pretty sake of my children. i left a very warm welcome to the program from all of us here at our teach in moscow. thanks for joining us for your global news update this hour. the prominent kremlin critic aleksandr volley could have been targeted with a nerve agent after leaving russia at the suggestion of russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov speaking at a video conference with journalists, the diplomat stressed that not only had tested negative for any toxins,
9:02 am
while still in the country artist, maria, national reports, it seems russia has had enough, after months of what most go, so as groundless accusations. foreign minister sergei lavrov says vali could have been poisoned after he left hospital in russia last uses the one. we have every reason to believe that what happened to him in terms of chemical warfare agents get into his body, could have happened in germany or on the plane. she was flown to the sheraton a hospital. exactly. how else can the sudden appearance of toxic materials in the vollies samples be explained? he stressed the results were clear when he was in arms. that's according to russian doctors who initially treated he meant several russian laboratories. it's only often a volley was taken to a lean that we heard about traces of navi chalk from germany 1st, then friends in sweden, despite there being no solid evidence proving it. russia was very quickly accused of using
9:03 am
a band nerve agent and punished with these sanctions. pick him up. there was very clearly an assault and an assassination attempt that was made on russian soil against a russian opponent, with a chemical agent on the business related in russia. and therefore, it is on russia to give indispensable clarification that we will have to draw from the information that russia provides the consequences all its refusal to provide tariff occasion i call on russia to do more to investigate this, case. a case such as this must have consequences. the e.u., therefore, reserves the right to impose sanctions. russia's accusing, now its western partners have been unreliable and is now ready to respond with mirror sanctions. it is difficult for me to understand the motives of german partners. i already told this to hike among us, but i can repeat this, it sort of secret that if we see how germany took the role of
9:04 am
a leader in the new escalation of relations with the russian federation, there will of course be a response to the sanctions and since germany was the driving force behind these e.u. sanctions over the novelli case, and since these sanctions directly affect hiring in stouffer's of the russian president's administration, we will respond in kind all russian requests for proof or any alleged date or were politely denied. so i would like to reiterate that we do not expect the bearer of the bad news, namely us to be criticized that it will be better to deal with the news itself. we have informed b, o, p, c, w, and urbanization that the russian side can approach to ask further questions., ironically, when addressing the o.p.c. w., russia was told to go back and ask germany, which made moscow doubt their organizations motives. i will be blunt, the o.p.c. w.'s technical secretary at is increasingly turning into a tool in the west and which is being used to exert informational and political pressure on countries that fail to toe the line. this conclusion is backed by the
9:05 am
watchdogs involvement in, and russian campaigns early it with the script case. and now with the alleged poisoning of alexina violently and now russia says it may consider leaving the o.p.c. w. . so the ball is in europe's court. for some background of all new 1st fell ill on an internal flight in russia. in august, the aircraft made an emergency landing in the city of all, i'm square, he was taken to the hospital and put into an induced coma. his samples were sent to several russian labs, and none of them found traces of any toxins. only it was then airlifted to germany, where he was treated at a specialist clinic in berlin. now, as we've heard earlier, russia's foreign minister has said, the government is not ruling out leaving the global chemical weapons watchdog, the o.p.c. w. . if relations do not improve in a few minutes time, we'll be speaking about that live with russia's permanent representative to the o.p.c. . as the world waits for
9:06 am
a viable covert vaccine, that finding a job isn't the only challenge the other is making it accessible or rich countries can afford stockpiling drugs. poor ones can lack the specialist. storage equipment needed are to show the difference. he picks up the story within hours of pharmaceutical giant pfizer and by own tech announcing that couvade $900.00 vaccine was 90 percent effective that you swooped in and signed on the dotted line. and,, europe wasn't alone. massive deals have also been struck with the u.s. the u.k., egypt, pan, canada, and new zealand, leading some n.g.o.s to question whether this is just a vaccine for rich nations. it's worrying that phase of bio, when tech has already struck, deals with rich countries for more than a 1000000000 doses of its vaccine, leaving less than a quarter of its projected supply for the rest of the world. big pharma profits
9:07 am
must not be prioritized over the health of billions. now, the european commission has been clear, member states can decide what to do with their vaccine doses. and that includes the, option of meeting them to lower and middle income countries. the u., it's unlikely to help a lot because it is in deep trouble itself in many poor countries are not going to be able to be all the supply expensive coaching infrastructure and storage on time to deliver the missing. this vaccine needs to be stored at minus 70 degrees celsius, requiring a special freezer of the type that isn't widely available even in europe and america. meaning countries will have to build deep freeze storage and transportation networks from scratch to keep the vaccine from becoming useless is for the action is costly, its component is unstable. it also requires call chain transportation and has
9:08 am
a short shelf life. the requirement for extremely cold temperatures is likely to cause spoilage a lot of vaccine the price tag in building these and the difficulties in administrating the required 2 shots within a month, may be too much of a burden for me. nations leaving them essentially frozen out some n.g.o.s have called on follow on tech to clarify how the vaccine will be made accessible outside high income countries. and they want the firms to make their vaccine technology available via a w h o scheme. so billions of doses can be produced as quickly and this cheaply as possible. now that's unlikely, because when the scheme was launched, pfizer made its feelings clear, i think is nonsense and at this point of time, it's also dangerous. there's a giant effort right now happening to find solutions. the risks we're taking
9:09 am
represent billions of dollars and the chances of developing something is still not very good and adding insult to injury the day. the vaccine was announced, the c.e.o. of fine. so many $5600000.00 worth of company stock. now pfizer says that this was a scheduled transaction. once the stock hit a certain value, but for many this was a cold shower. of a reminder, the big pharma is also big money. so a vaccine for covert 19 may be closer, which of course is good news. well, for those who can at least afford it, i say centralized profit seeking theory of come with market in some way. because the last country to be called that really determines when the pandemic it's going to the one who paid for it get it 1st. i mean, we complain much, but the point is really if it is eventually optimal for them to leave all these
9:10 am
poor countries untreated because they could eventually travel back to the bric countries at the same time. profit incentive shouldn't be in the mind. the world's greatest invention and treatment by a lot by products. meanwhile, a new medical study has added to the urgency of finding a vaccine. if found that catching cove it can correlate with developing mental disorders. the study was run by the university of oxford. it found that one in 5 patients go on to develop mental health issues within 3 months of testing positive . and also this was based on 69000000 u.s. medical records, more than 62000 of them had coronavirus. the majority of disorders attending kovac are characterized by feelings of worry or fear, in some cases strong enough to make everyday life seem bearable. they include adjustment disorder, post-traumatic, stress disorder, panic, attacks, insomnia,
9:11 am
and even dementia. we talked to a co-author of the study. the short answer is that we don't know yet, and we have to do more research to find out, you know, we can start to speculate about what might be the reasons and i think the might be 2 main reasons. one is psychological. the and one is biological, the psychological one is quite intuitive. people suffer with the 19 which is quite scary in itself and the fear of having a potentially life limiting in this might cause things like anxiety and depression . there's also a possible biological explanation, which is that it is possible that sounds good to say the very virus that causes 19 my get into the brain. we know that some viruses do. we don't know yet as far as i know where the source of 2 does, but it's possible that it does. and in that way it might be affecting the brain and damaging the brain if you will, within the biological explanation is also an inflammatory explanation. so we know
9:12 am
that too, as a virus, causes an information throughout the body that can be, can expend well beyond the lungs. and it may be that, that inflammatory response also involves the brain. and if that's the case, that in my view, that the inflammation to be immune response of the body mount against the infection, might be the cause of the cycle. given that there's going to be more people suffering with mental illness as a result of team, we need to make sure that there is services provided for those people in therapy provided for the people. we know the things that he depression, for instance, for example, is all treatable, diseases. most people that receive treatment for anxiety, depression do get better. and so it's very important that those treatments are available to all that need them during the pandemic. and i'll go back to our top story and the possibility of russia leaving the o.p.c. w. if relations don't improve. as promised,
9:13 am
we can now speak with alexander szell guinn russia's permanent representative to the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons. every welcome to the program 7 years ago when syria was doing away with its chemical weapons arsenal. russia and the o.p.c. w. seemed to have a good rapport. what's changed since then? so the new in russia was at the origin of its organization. is just beautiful. we were among the 1st country that if you screw parents signed and ratified the chemical weapons convention our camp aeration, b.c.w.s. was always ideal when 2017 used to assume we have destroyed. so you know, our chemical weapons arsenal that will inherit some of the soviet union. but it should be for schedule, as opposed to recently, everything being looked at when down there recently into the us. the us sired by
9:14 am
western countries led by the united states to change the international law with their own will. is a great way to get around. it's made up of rules to use wisdom that they try to forge with something functional damaging function. instead, it should not avoid damaging because they don't change that security council if you look around and american in its allies for trying to look privatized, that they are going to lay down the breakup to finish chemical weapons. and they are just buying food with her and it is good to escape to implementing a fairytale politic all agenda and just a side effect that our concentration which beckon call to secretary is a way through. it's difficult for us to hear it. so i wouldn't really want to play
9:15 am
a bad we have reached a point of no return to in our relations. the loss means to because there is an important plaid or and where we can argue and work our interest when, where we can express our views regarding the current events and russia address direct general of belt. if you feel valued with his suggestion to slander x. herds, so to russian x. rays also participated and investigated what happened to know about any and all bad a good guy or any crime was committed to pull ups and no one will notice it. so to see if any criminal investigation is necessary, do you feel that we've reached the point of no return when it comes to relations between russia and the o.p.c. w? is there any saving the situation? kill just because all you need to, as i have all the right is that i don't really have saying that we have reached the
9:16 am
point of no return because these maps are and it is very important souls that we could express our point of view regarding the current events so that we could open the eyes for many are their delegations because some of our partners are being the slat. and school we are continuing to call to raise with their b.t.w. is this path of the sending x. birds is there to record the raiders of their acts for its soul that they could see in to investigate the bali case so that they could find out if there was a crime committed. you mention that not only their russia's foreign minister, sergei lavrov has said that the opposition activists might have been in germany are on the plane, taking care of him there. and that's when he was infected with those toxins. is that possible? well suited for yourselves,
9:17 am
or you're a seller, this sample of taking it from the bottom. it's enormous and should worry, he hasn't needed to a hospital, you know, with traces of any poison, but it was found those samples at the same time isn't a biased sample but are taking him by a determined doctor's tech claim to send burl. and later by that is the w. x. person. they found traces of poisoning substances in the western country is called the group agent will reduce his not in the conventional so we should ask yourself did poisoning really happen? and if it were indeed that happened, in any case you are position is absolutely clear. it is an open. we had to look into it professionally. how can we have such
9:18 am
a discrepancy as our x. for its routine chemists to see, to the express use and look by and of the truth? unfortunately, we are not being heard. so our word term and we have 3 pusing is cooperating. and instead of answers to the requests that we're sending, which regarding to legal support have only more questions in reply in response, we should to decide not to go institutes. and so we are in the dead. and from what it looks exactly, and germany is still refusing to give any data on the case to russia. why do you think that is? let me ask, you know, how, where is this image german counterpart?, it's a shame you don't want to fulfill their obligations on the c.w., the article 9 according to which it was based consult with
9:19 am
a child. their only guarding addy issue is related to the implementation of the w.c. convention or the articles that happen according to which the lamberts aides support each other legally to implement the article is called the chemical weapon convention. unfortunately, that what we have on our hands and we have approached the technical secretariat question regarding the technical cooperation that the technical experts area provided to the bureau and science. and we were told to go to berlin just as it berlin because we have a confidentiality clause. and we can't disclose any information without their consent. and the same goes towards the reports because there is a b. c. of w. . look at reports of events to person in your ministry which deplorable lot of
9:20 am
important information of the 3 doctors and not other things. it was all in the interest of adequate helpless find out the truth of what happened and what i'm going to be advised of the technique of the secretary as well to introduce it to this is one of her many we have sent a request, but we haven't had any reply yet. so the stance from the uk b.t.w. has stayed the same. they are continuing to decline. russia's request for evidence . but it's a technical 6. did a position on the technical of secretariat or is apollo weight. they do not disclose any details raised in many ways. so we were determined to be fair and we have to save said that they said you have to produce and they all for the promise of their help. so bad with the article,
9:21 am
a new system will not be applied for technical excellence with the added lines and with it in and out. months ago, i already mentioned what kind of computer work that we wanted at from the tech, certain areas, and 1.5 months later, we are as the old cast thing with protecting their aboriginal kids. dale's all the school task of the objective and objectives, its mission should have battered our path to response. and so the ball is on various sites now. so are there no other steps that russia can or will be taking when it comes to this case? this is just not good note and great news, leon, is that the situation but not really good for our german counterpart. they say he's going to ultimately loudly, and that is please tell the situation is not
9:22 am
a valid trial that a little relation, a good friend of russia and germany, and lumping us multilevel old is not something to be considered as such. blabber, permanent, b. c, w. it's going to get it to us and although it takes time technical, a secretary of 3, director of us can go to our german counters cards and a calendar to fast them. questions go have something of a vicious stress over there. you can ask me what it was that was chances are to break this vicious circle just to host a science exam, i think that there is always doubt, nonverbal. carry must be just that. what good will be done. it is because we have a lot of good will know how to lead our encounters, parts, and particular in 1st of all our nuclear arsenal to help another communist. and if you know parades we have because according to the c.w.c. convention, we've been speaking with alexander szell,
9:23 am
again. russia's permanent representative to the l. p. c. w. thank you for your time and your combat. it the prime minister of armenia is fighting for political survival after signing a peace deal with azerbaijan. a meaning capital has been gripped by days of unrest . now we're about to show you the latest pictures from your event where crowds have gathered yet again, outside of parliament, are calling for the prime minister's retching resignation. and the armenians are furious about the true sign earlier this week. to halt fighting in the disputed region of they view it as a humiliating defeat under the terms azerbaijan will hold on to the land. it's come short. in the past 7 weeks of hostilities, plus armenia is obliged to hand over 3 other districts by the end of the month. since the conflict flared up in late september, almost $90000.00 ethnic armenians have fled karbala. many of them are right after the deal was signed when it became clear that their homes and villages would be handed over to baku makeshift centers with volunteers and aid workers have been
9:24 am
created to help accommodate them. but some of those fleeing found shelter and homes of total strangers in armenia are reports. we built our dreams. we wanted our dreams to come true, but after 30 years it's war again. again, everything is destroyed. there are many places in the world where peace spells torment, but nagorno-karabakh is one of them. the truce between armenia and azerbaijan hasn't brought any relief for those who fled the war, but nona didn't want to run, not at the beginning, at least, but did for the sake of her children. yet as with, with the 1st bombing, i walked the children and we went to our neighbor's basements. we're in an area where there are no bomb shelters. i didn't want to leave my home, but another siren my daughter said mom, they're coming for the sake of my children. i left stepanek at to care of the
9:25 am
kids. well, while she's holding back tears, her little daughter runs around as if war has never been a feature of her young life. finding home in armenia has never been a challenge. people weren't just welcoming. they were actively searching for refugees to give them shelter from the bomb what i thought something needs to be done. and i started looking for a family to help. and they found me, they found me and i found them. and they have been living with me since october 1st, as non-o. was following the war from afar. at 1st, everything seemed bright, just as if victory was around the corner. but then troubling news from her husband on the front line was the 1st sign that all was not well in her homeland. the husband said that the is their version. he's were waiting outside the city to attack and at night a drone attack, the car in which he and other military personnel were and she reached and his relatives took him to the hospital. but he wanted to go back and fight. and now he's in stepanek at the peace deal,
9:26 am
which for many looks too much like surrender hate karabakh. refugees like a hammer blow, says the by journey's will never give them a chance at co-existing my adult when it came, my relatives lived in had route. it was very scary. they were in the basement until mid october, but they were lucky enough to leave there and escape. my other friend lived. she lost her home and her husband, and she has no idea how to continue living. none, i was well aware of what happened and how much of new going to karabakh they have to give up and she finds it impossible to accept, but it looks like she and tens of thousands of other refugees will have no choice but to get used to it and my girls done of reporting from armenia for auti at their global news update for this hour. but don't forget, you can always follow us on twitter or instagram for up to the minute reports.
9:27 am
you know, close will soup will sure. wish to leave your door wu . clubbable was your sure i can board. it doesn't actually matter. vegetable would've been murdered by you got to go with us because all of those who do use the broncos. those don't get me game. we will see in the movie, confused with the we've seen the whole scene was he was by his emotions a bit. some of it is in your speech. come on and use the i'm the 20th century was thing in or of revolution. the great depression and world wars, the 21st century of mental illness. those aren't my words. that's what
9:28 am
surfaced some psychiatry's to tell us. the only question is, should we accept it as a fact? yes or no? join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to get out of the world of politics or business. i'm show business. i'll see you there. during the vietnam war there was a secret war. and for years, the american people did not know how much it is officially country per capita, human history, millions of unexploded bombs still in danger. lives in this small agricultural country. even today,
9:29 am
kids in laos full victims of bombs dropped decades ago. is the us making amends for the tragedy and help to the people need in that little welcome to visionaries me sophie shevardnadze. language is what makes us human unique. so was behind one of our species, most incredible inventions. and how is it changing with technology? well, ask robert byrd, a fake professor of computational linguistics, computer science and engineering at mit. robert berwick professor off computational linguistics, computer science and engineering at mit. it's really great to have you with us
9:30 am
today, professor. well, going great, great to be here. hey. so i mean, look at us, we're like 7000000000 people and we speak 7000 languages. we need language for communication, but is language in that sense kind of preventing communication rather than facilitating it. i mean, since every language cost issued some sort of a private club that's more or less close to outsiders. right. right. that's always been $1.00 conception of language. is that collectively that people that speak a language, even a very it's a little bit from person to person. you can think of as a kind of cultural artifact that's being created by the people or last week that way. of course, the way we want to study language might differ from that because language can be used for lots of things. it can be used for communication about it can also be used for meskin cation as well as we've seen in the current election. not only just just here.
