4:00 pm
ah, i use the, the us on vales, the possibility of another rhonda functions against russia just 4 days after the putin biden summit in geneva. and in spite of the optimistic messages from both sides also in the stories that shape the week. moscow sets a grim record of the daily number of cobra. 1900 cases, stores to an all time high. the city's mirror as a month, the raft of new measures a region of central italy wants to welcome tourists who have receive rushes. sputnik, the shot stuff to this point, a lack of approval so far from the european medicines agency or regional counselor
4:01 pm
spoke to our we will no student works. and therefore, just probably a continuation of the european union policy towards the russian federation. devastating floods. the one person dead to missing and 24 injured in southern rushes, crimea, province of authorities, declare a state of emergency our corresponded reports from the region. so this is what some of the streets here. and you also look like right now. i mean, you can hardly call it even a street, you could probably take on the store and go on a canoe or something. i with the help stories from the past 7 days and right up to the moment developments to welcome to the weekly an rti on union. only the u. s. government has said it's
4:02 pm
drawing up yet another round of anti russia sections. it's happening. this might largely off beats messages having emerged from the potent biden summit which took place just 4 days ago. brushes foreign ministry spokesman house condemned the move saying moscow will be forced to retaliate. we have always given a consistent response to legal actions of the united states. it is strange that some people in washington enjoy this obstacle course so much. american idealogues have revealed themselves. they need all of the fuss around the supposed poisoning as a tool for solving the problems of their own non competitiveness. it is a surprise and you know, given the latest twist that we're seeing right now, it seems that you know, the relationship between russia and the us. they are not going to improve anytime soon. in fact, they can get even worse. because jack salim, the us national security advisor has just said on seeing that they are the biden's administration, is preparing new sanctions against moscow. we are preparing another package of
4:03 pm
sanctions to apply and these case as well. we've shown all along the way that we're not going to pull our punches whether it's on so or waynes or elections interfering, or na valley when it comes to responding to rushes harmful activities. it will come as soon as we have develop the package is to ensure that we are getting the right targets. and when we do that, we will impose further sanctions with respect to chemical weapons. this comes on the heels of the geneva, somewhere between vladimir putin and joe biden, where they had their 1st face to face meeting since the american president took office and both sides hailed as talks as constructive and overall positive. and even though there were, there wasn't any major break through, at least it seemed the 2 leaders were committed to try to improve the poor state of the bilateral relationship between russia and the us. and just days after the summit, the senior american official announcing that they will prepare new that they're
4:04 pm
going to prepare new sanctions and not just with regard to lexia in the valley. he also reaffirm that they will continue to impose several sanctions against companies that are related to the north stream to gas pipeline. so on, you know, that's a stark contrast to how the russian side acted after the summit in geneva, reputed, for instance, he oh, but defended joe biden, amid allegations he's facing at home, that the u. s. president might not be in his best, physical or mental shape. you know, he's often seen not being able to read properly, probably teleprompter or, you know, losing sense of directions. but let me put, and after this summit, he basically talked joe biden, up that image that is being drawn by the media kind of low you into a full sense of security. but there's no reason for that whatsoever, because by the is a professional, and you've got to be very careful with him in order not to miss anything. he
4:05 pm
doesn't miss anything. i can assure you a suit. so i can tell russian officials, policy maker, they can feel a bit confused after this about face. jack solomon, the u. s. the national security advisor. he talks about new anti russian, russian sanctions like, you know, the summit never happened. and it's especially bizarre if, especially if you recall what the americans talk before the summit, they were talking about predictable and stable relationship between the us and russia. that's something they are seeking. and what they're doing right now after the summit, it doesn't necessarily falls under the category of, you know, predictability life spoke with the independent journalist, martin summers. he thinks the upcoming sanction show the extent of the anti russian lobby in the u. s. well,
4:06 pm
i think it shows disarray only us side. it was always going to be very difficult for boyd and to make any kind of concessions because there's a huge lobby inside the united states based within the, the sort of security apparatus. when the media, who are determined to sabotage constructive relations between russia and the west, the faction which you're pushing for sanctions. they weren't very happy perhaps of the meeting took place at all. and therefore, they've never carried out their mastery nations in order to prevent anything positive coming on today. on the same side as a sort of gets a free media. it makes it's just common sense to saw. she talked to each other. so of course we had the meeting last week, but i can't say on terribly surprised to see that the, the reiteration of all still, etc, which is now become endemic. well, president,
4:07 pm
putin, on biden's book for 3 and a half hours in geneva on wednesday. and our team was there in switzerland following all the developments you're so quick recap of how the day unfolded. the the, i have no illusions following the meeting, either old or new, that can't be any illusions at all by and sat in vain. russia, by the way, that was a joke. well, here's the main takeaways from the day the leaders agreed to hold consultations on strategic stability and nuclear arms control. they also discussed a possible prisoner exchange and agreed to return their respective busters to their
4:08 pm
post. not. there was no breakthrough in cybersecurity, much talked about issue though they agreed to start regular consultations on it as for stumbling blocks, putting on buying raise concerns, but human rights in each other's country. they also fail to come up with any concrete action plan for the country of ukraine. i was mentioned to our team was in geneva with peter on south gear fronting the a long couple weeks. i'll hold on high, i'll go around, of course the big russia us summit was building now it's over, don, president biden, president putin, they sat down, they talked, i'm really the bottom line is, looks like ties between the 2 countries are better today and really looks like the best you can, hopefully we've never going to move mountains in terms of the problems that exist. but what we have seen is them say that they'll re ignite diplomatic relations.
4:09 pm
maybe not tomorrow, maybe not to say that, but at some point it's going to happen. we'll see a russian, i'm in washington, us, some of that back in moscow. the very basics of diplomacy when it comes to just how they viewed one another. we heard from joe biden saying that it wasn't ever going to be friendly really, but it was, it was positive, it was certainly positive. and we heard from me saying that it wasn't again, it wasn't context the wasn't somebody school remote points that we don't know when a profi, the job wasn't to get one or someone out. it was sent pete to become and just been communication able to have an open frank dialogue to dissolve to in the future. and to do that without any hostility. and that's what we had from your billing group. mister, there was no hospitality on the country meeting was very constructive. our views differ on many issues, but i believe both sides have shown a willingness to understand each other and to bring up different positions close
4:10 pm
together. there wasn't any, any strident action taken, or we disagreed. i disagree, stated where it was where he disagreed, he stated, but it was not done in a hyperbolic you atmosphere. both presidents have now left, 3 watched both aeroplanes fly away. we've actually had a pretty good view and it comes to plain spot. i mean, i know the geneva runway, like no one else travel you controls gotten now thing on may the lucian 96 as in boeing 74 seven's air force. well, now i can see them from about 10 kilometers away out of new stream. but actually the security has been something so note, but for the soldiers we saw the police. we saw the boat. so we're going to on the, on the lake, the sunset over the lake just behind us here in geneva, city looking resplendent. it has been roasting holes, but ours on a pathetic fantasy, absolutely perfect for the heated tubes. and i think they probably walk heated bite
4:11 pm
and himself gave him and that that was such and things that he was not willing to negotiate through to moist. also that you know what, we have different views on this. we don't have to look to i, but we still have to protect our own people and protect global security. now course, the best place to tell us everything about especially president putin's press conference, was god who himself was literally in the hall. i believe he's got a chance to president putin. a question himself, the be difficult questions that vladimir putin faced, that which job button had the good fortune to escape? what questions about the opposition? so that we're putting the point to that the protesters and the rest of the following the event in capitol hill that they faces much as 25 years in jail. 35 years in jail for a political throat in the year. but to budget had said that there's new comparison to because they're criminal. but alexa, in the above me,
4:12 pm
who was convicted in serving a 2 year sentence for the violation of his early early release. so he was convicted by russian court and vladimir putin. he says that, you know, americans and all comparing what happened the capitol hill to the treatment of election, yvonne and saying there's nothing in common with the nation. you just, you know, by going on non systemic opposition and the citizen, you've mentioned this person knew full well that he was violating russian law. and he knew full well, but there was a warrant for his arrest. nevertheless, he came back to russia and he deliberately wanted to be arrested. so he did what he wanted to do. what else can we say here? one of the things both leaders agreed on is to barger buttons, was they need to be rules of the road. so that as a rule to how booth countries should behave in case they come into this agreement
4:13 pm
over substitute the dispute, your outside conflict, ab resolve them as a civilized part. i would say fred, the talked earlier, but they need a framework of how to behave and so that to happen, those countries need to be held equally accountable. it wouldn't do one country gets away with doing something and the other doesn't feel body said phrase that caused quite disturb live. and he said, how would the united states feel if it was she'd by the rest of the world as meddling for an election? which much of the world sees the united states as do it. but in this rate, that was us, which is russia is accused of being predictable. by the way. how is russia planning to change? here vladimir putin smart was that when you should dirge, he's given your name when you say with believe that russian foreign policy is unpredictable. that will let me send the park back to you. the u. s. leaving the abm treaty in 2002 with absolutely unpredictable. what are they doing it for that
4:14 pm
undermine the basis of international stability in the area of strategic security. then withdrew from the i n f treaty in 2019. there's nothing stable about that. the open sky treaty withdrawal, there's nothing stable about it and almost nothing left. thank god, in the field. the strategic stability, mr. biden, have taken a completely adequate decision to prolong the new start treaty for 5 years. you know, if you take the situation with ukraine with crimea, that's where this all sounds right. what stable about endorsing the qu, they talk when the ex president yanna cove agreed with all the demands of the opposition. he was basically ready to abandon power, undeclared, new election in about 3 months. no blood hills coolers needed that lead to known consequences southeast of the country, then crimea. and you think it also, predictably, no, i don't think so. what do we do at the end of the day?
4:15 pm
what happened here in geneva? decent summit was basically a trust building exercise. very few specifics with agreed upon, if any. they agreed to talk about many things to work on many things, but ultimately it is a trust exercise is about laying a foundation on which russia the united states can rebuild relations. i wouldn't say build on relations because there aren't much left to speak off there. there in taxes, whether it worked, joe biden says, we'll find out within the year. but let's see results from the, from all the tools from all the agreement and the criticism that both sides had for each other. but the message is, the preliminary. it was successful that he spent the day in the villa where those talks were taking place. this was billed as a heavy weight clash of the titans. perhaps we weren't expecting any major results, but certainly looking much between 2 political big guns. what they did say,
4:16 pm
both of them was that they talk to not just the president biden, the president, but joe biden demand, glad to meet the man when they agreed on things that they could cooperate on. they talked about those when they disagree. they made sure that both of their points were made as forcefully as they could. joe biden, the us president saying though, while it was over a record deal, it's likely that they're going to be embracing one another and swaying side to side anytime soon. i don't think he's looking for a cold war or the united states. i don't think about, as i said to him, i said your generation of mind about 10 years apart. this is not a come by our moment is used to say back in the sixty's and united states like less hug and love each other. but it's clearly not in anybody's interest. your countries are mine for us to be in a situation where we're in a new cold war the russian region or crimea, has declared
4:17 pm
a state of emergency amid severe flooding, thus left at least one person dead on 43, not injured. almost 2000 people have been evacuated from their homes. ortiz, the version of reports from crimea. ah, with me. so this is what some of the street here and y'all to look like right now. i mean, you can hardly call it even a street. you could probably take on the store until on a canoe or something. i mean, just walking around here is already a challenge. it's a challenge to keep your balance alone. in fact, on top of that, i can feel large boulders every once in a while, hitting my feet and legs. now speaking of the street, well,
4:18 pm
the ground floor of the residential buildings here are gone. there are no more. and this is obviously hugely distressing to the locals. so this is where the army and the emergency workers have focused their efforts right now. in 2016, this man's house was destroyed by fire. so we families started from scratch. the final touches had been made just days before the flood hit. it all happened all too fast. oh yes, a bucket. i have a dog and he started acting strangely at 430 morning so i took it outside my door saved us. the rain was so strong by 6 o'clock, the water had reached its banks. i will call my son and we started to start the water from entering our home. but nothing could stop it. we could only grab our documents and not fit. we lost everything. you could show a disaster like this has never happened before. i hope no will ever have to go through what we did. it's a tragedy. why was making our authorities to help us to help the people,
4:19 pm
the emergency ministry and the army have had to join the efforts to deal with the aftermath of the flood. as a software, we are clearing the drainage system, removing debris from the flood. so the water drains away more quickly, their efforts are aided by volunteers. in this school, even the little ones have come out to help to the best of their ability. stephanie touch base and that was completely loaded. rescue work is pumped out the water and we scooped out of the salt and mont. now we have taken out the furniture to see what we can to use. our children came to help asking us to give them a job. they carry out toys. we gave them simple jobs. so this is what a beach here normally looks like this time a year. but this is what it actually looks like right now. it was supposed to be the beginning of a high to receive and, but obviously that will have to wait. now i'm again done a reporting from crimea c. tough time for the tourist industry. there are still
4:20 pm
ahead on r c. the russian capital is tightening its cobit restrictions due to a spike in case numbers. we've got that story and more few, after the shortest break. ah, the the the the the, the the ah,
4:21 pm
the ah, what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy foundation. let it be an arms race is often very dramatic. development only personally i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, a very critical time. time to sit down and talk the hello again. moscow has sent a grim record in new coven infections. registering more than $9000.00 cases in a 24 hour period. new restrictions are now being brought in, including the limiting of non emergency medical care for on vaccinated patients.
4:22 pm
artillio trego can bring us up to date. less than 2 weeks ago. the numbers in moscow were plus $2900.00 cases. and there you have it. this friday, a new sad record of more than plus $9000.00 in a whole country like mexico for example. this figure is 2 times smaller. so what is going on? it looks like the new delta varian which originated in india is taken install on the russian capital. according to the mayor of moscow. almost 90 percent of the new infections in the city are the new delta variance. and because also we're going to see them. the delta strain spreads foster, and the worst thing about it is that the person needs strong immunity twice as many anti bodies to resistance compared to the original we'll hand virus. so essentially we're going through the same thing again, but with more severe consequences,
4:23 pm
the government has come to the understanding that the pace of the vaccination has been very though and now they are rushing to change that. now here's one of the ground breaking decisions, introduced by the medical authorities and the washing capital. in moscow, free non essential care in the hospitals will only be provided for those who have been vaccinated. everyone will still get the emergency treatment if it's required. if you are a patient with cancer or with blood diseases, you will still get all the necessary treatment. but in other cases for non essential care, like i said, a jab will be required. patients have a weekend immune system for them could be 900, is especially dangerous. it is impossible to avoid all contact with them or to isolate them. all those who can have the job for special reasons will still be admitted to hospital and emergency medical care will be provided with exception to
4:24 pm
everybody, regardless of vaccination status campaign in the city to promote booster jabs will also begin in the near future. the moscow's mayor office announced mandatory vaccination for 60 percent of the staff in the service sector, so it looks like the rushing capital is bracing itself for nothing less but a real vaccination boom. when the bladder approved his press secretary dmitri passcode was asked about what the kremlin makes of the new spikes and the measures . here's what the spokesperson replied. don't get even worse. and he tuition is due to 3 things, the absolute nihilism. that is people failure to comply with restrictions, the low vaccination rate and the slide nature of the virus. in the meantime, the existing anti covert measures in the rushing capital have been extended till the end of june, namely, the closure of bars, restaurants, and clubs. during the night and also
4:25 pm
a 3rd of staff members being required to work from home. in addition to that, the moscow mayor's office has also bad mass gatherings of over 1000 people. besides this dance floor than football fans. owens will also have to be shut down for now. once again, i'd like to point out that so far, these are the measures that have been announced for the washing capital. this isn't on a federal level just yet, but we have received a warning from the authorities that all of this could be extended to other regions of russia if that is required. so this is a possibility in the near future as well in a region of central italy wants to allow tourists who receive the russian sputnik, the cobra shot to visit the mark a province is urging the government to open up the entire country to such travelers . we heard from the local counselor who came up with the initiative most everyone knows the effectiveness of scrutiny on neighbor san marina,
4:26 pm
who is vaccinated with nick, but we are not even supposed to allow citizens of san marino to end to italy. now our region intends to open up to continue welcoming russians and we want to maintain relations with russia. we are friends with russia, and we want to continue business in the tourism sector, russian citizens, tourists, even if the vaccinated cannot come to italy. and this is cause tremendous economic loss because italy attracts the loss of russian tourists each year. what comes a week after the european parliament a final approval to the new digital certificate scheme for cobit 9 dean, which has been called controversial. it includes data on p. c. r, test antibodies, vaccination, but only for shots approved by the european medicines agency. so far the regulator has approved for vaccines, russian chinese or indian jobs, they're not among them. do komarovsky again, sees it's become a highly politicized issue. much you should know, in my opinion,
4:27 pm
this decision is caused by 2 political reasons and russia phobia. these are not medical reasons because we all know student works and therefore it is probably a continuation european union's policy towards the russian federation. i have absolutely no fear that we are protecting the interests of mar, k, v. 2 often protects impress the conflict with the interests in europe in systems we european citizens, but we are primarily residents of them. okay. and so we serve our interests, especially in such absurd situations. like the one we are talking about. england flocked and has been extended by 4 weeks beyond the june 21st target day after a search in case numbers. the british prime minister has defended the move, seeing, opening up know would cost like for week delay, we think would make even more of a difference in reducing the overall number of, of deaths. and that's why we're,
4:28 pm
that's why we're doing it. and at the end of the that period of, by, by july, the 19th, we do think that we will, to build top a very considerable wall of immunity around the whole of the population. i mean, anti locked in, protesters rallied near dining street in london on monday, jumping shame on you and demanding cold freedom. here's what some people in the british capital told us about developed by everyone to do that bit say in those 6 months. nonsense to one to be really positive and gets backseat speculated. and then to be told that, you know, 4 weeks of things not being being i've been, it is, it is very frustrating. it's too early to come out with plenty of pen is now social distance ending going out and taking it further. thank is
4:29 pm
a great idea. to try and get them get more people's like i don't agree with closing for the 4 weeks. so delaying everything. because maybe they could have done something before lights trying not to open too quick to people teaching inside because no one knew about the discovery. and so now when you are hired could be there are lots of people with businesses and things like that, that really struggle and actually, especially in the country just well, that is a recap of the big stories of the week. but our programs are just about to kick off . find out what showing wherever you are today. in moment me. ah.
4:30 pm
one of the worst ever mess shootings in america was in las vegas in 2017. the tragedy a close a little of the real last vegas. where many say elected officials are controlled by christina learners. the vegas shooting revealed what the l v m p d really is. and now it's part of the stand machine to the american public barely remembers that it happened, but just shows you the power of money and las vegas. the powerful showed that true colors when the pen demick heard the most contagious contagion that we've seen in decades. and then you have a mayor who doesn't care to, here's caroline goodman, offering the lives of the vegas residence. to be the control group, to the shiny facade, conceal a deep indifference to the people vice gonna be saved if they were to take an action. absolutely keep the registering and keep the slot machines being.
