in public places. with m e p's hailing it sounds a major victory or a guest debate. the issue is good news, really in criminals and terrorist, it'll be abused like crazy. there's a great saying and law enforcement that when you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail and a cross border kidney swap, doctors in israel and the united arab emirates save 3 lives with a historic medical tie up just a year after the countries established relation. ah, wherever you are counting the program from today. welcome to moscow on to r t international pleasure the have your company. my name's ann o'neil. we will get to those headline stories in a moment, but 1st i want to break the breaking news on the program. a powerful explosion has
8:02 am
had a she at mosque in the northern afghan city of couldn't does it happen during friday prayers? when a large number people were gathered inside taliban representatives have said at least 28 people are dead and many more injured. they have blamed the ices k terrace group, which was behind the couple or a port bluff back in august. as and when more verified information comes into the program on love, the death toll included. we will of course, bring it to you on the program. just a reminder, a powerful explosion is had a she, a mosque in conduce that northern afghan city. tell a button represented of course no. the government say at least 28 people are dead. they are blaming the eyes as k. terrorist democrats in the us congress are going all lights with colds for a crock. done on facebook following the claims of a company whistleblower. although it now turns out that fronts is hogan house close
8:03 am
ties to the party, something she failed to mention when demanding action against her in our former employer. place books, products harm, children, stoke, division, and week in our democracy. the companies leadership knows how to make facebook, and instagram saver a won't make the necessary changes because they have put their astronomical prophets afore people. congressional action is needed. well, let's try allan tank ho. they web fronts is hug and is being represented there by a co founder of whistleblower aid. john tie, he served in the obama administration, the other co founder of the organization, which helps whistleblowers pay their lawyers. fees is mark is a no, he was a legal representative for this mon, alexander vin month, a white house stuff, or who testified in donald trump's 1st impeachment trial. max blumenthal editor in
8:04 am
chief of the grey's own highlighted, other alleged links unsafe political affiliation, is no surprise. in this case. her testimony dovetails very closely with the democrat censorship agenda. their plan or their desire to heavily sensor social media. frances, how again was pushing that agenda if it's true that bryson gillette, the strategic communications firm that is reportedly advising francis halligan, and which was founded by former obama aid bill burton. does it enjoy this relationship with her? then we also have to consider her relationship. a possible relationship with abide and white house, who's press secretary jen. saki, i actually used to be employed as a senior advisor by bryce and juliet. what's clear here is that democratic operatives were not, if these reports are true,
8:05 am
are providing p r advice and promotion to francis how going a previously unknown figure who has instantly verified by twitter the day of her carefully coordinated and crafted testimony. so she's not as a, an actual whistleblower. she is a political operative advancing a cohesive agenda. what's more, it's emerged that francis hogan is a regular donor to democrat affiliated organizations, which help party candidates get elected. legal and media analyst, lionel on max bloom, until again gave us their take on the facebook allegations and also the dangers of censorship. she just wants more government intervention. so i think the impact we're going to see going forward is more censorship. more intervention from the intelligence services and the reorientation of these social media sites to target official u. s. enemies per her recommendation. i think of. 2 you know,
8:06 am
it could, it can benefit multiple causes, you could see it benefiting the religious. right. that doesn't like the kind of semi pornographic content on instagram and the way it degrades women of feminist could get behind it. but behind it all is a much more insidious agenda that how going outlines she has explicitly called for bass, beefing up facebook's counter espionage team to take on official enemies. she named me and mar ethiopia, which is a new target of u. s. empire as well as iran and china. she did not refer to facebook working with any u. s. allies to carry out malicious activities. this is an extension of the narrative we've been hearing since the russia gate saga began. the real issue, the gravamen, the, the $64000.00 question is one of our people in coating. a former president of the united states who are excluded. an expert gated bowdlerized from any kind of public
8:07 am
conversation. because of who he is. that's the issue. i may ask you some, one of you were on your phone on your mo bile and you said something politically piquant and all the sudden your phone went dead because your carrier says car, we don't like that. that's a hate speech. and you say you're the phone company, you don't, you don't monitor what i say. well, that's what we have to look at these companies as utilities, they will shut you down merely because you're oh pining and expressing in a an opinion. that's what they never talked about. that's the reason that's what i wanted to hear. that was never addressed in this big whistle blowing, expose a patch, blah blah blah, blah blah. as gretta would say. coles are growing in the u. s. to slap and new sanctions on russia over the nord stream to pipeline in light of europe's
8:08 am
energy crisis. it comes just days after vladimir putin pledge to ramp up natural gas applies to europe with prices hitting record highs. marty's dollar quarter has joined me live here in this shoot to talk more on this. indeed. first of all, what is russia kuza bindle? while you know, they're basically being accused of trying to artificially keep the price of natural gas as high as possible. but that actually announcement by the russian president vladimir putin to boost to europe's natural gas supplies, caused a price decrease of 20 percent. right after that, amid this energy crisis, and just 2 days after that, we heard from us congressman michael mccall, who said that that the u. s. should resume sanctions against russia in connection to the nord stream to pipeline. and why he says that russia's somehow weapon ising, it president biden and chancellor merkel committed to taking action. should russia attempt to use energy as a weapon?
8:09 am
yet, both of tend to blind eye to the putin regimes deliberate efforts to press europe into accelerating the russian nodes stream to pipeline certification process by manipulating europe's gas markets and leveraging a severe energy crisis on the continent. and mccaul says, anglo merkel is turning a blind eye to some apparent malign, influenced by russia, but anglo merkel herself has said that russia fulfills all of its obligations in these contracts that are voluntarily made between russia and the european union. the fog. it is a gift, is if you ask me whether there have been orders that russia has taken and then fail to fulfil as it stands. now, that is not the case. that is, there are no orders that russia has said no, we will not deliver this to you, and we are not pumping gas through the ukrainian pipeline. rather russia can only fulfill orders that have been contract it out. so the question is really, isn't being ordered the still, the international gas union also praised russia as the power that can bring energy
8:10 am
security to europe. and that the north stream to pipeline would actually play a crucial role in that. so it doesn't exactly seem like the reasoning behind mccall statements to resume sanctions against russia has a leg to stand on. and yet the allegations from the u. s. keep coming. how is moscow responded right, well, we heard from russia's foreign minister survey leverage. he said, basically the u. s. is trying to pick rushes european partners against moscow. let's take a snort he said to your list of you've been with us openly say that cooperation with russia is contrary to europe's energy security interests. they want to directly embroiled in this area and reduce our independence. so when use it's now it's also important to note that russian president vladimir putin even urged to russia, state gas company, gas prom, to continue pumping fuel through ukraine even once north stream 2 is fully operational. and that move would show europe that russia wants to act in good faith that they're ready to fulfill their contractual obligations. even though if they
8:11 am
made this move entirely to pumping gas to the north stream to pipeline. this would save the company billions of dollars. don, thanks very much for bring this through all that. donal quarter. european lawmakers are pushing for a bond on facial recognition systems used by police. the u parliament has passed a non binding resolution against biometric surveillance, which some emmy piece compared to cold war snippy. that's an important step in fighting against mass surveillance, the central and eastern europeans used to live under the eye of the big brother. and we don't want to come back the resolution calls for a bomb on funding or deploying programs that could result in indiscriminate mass surveillance. now the document also emphasizes the importance of human supervision in any final decision making and urge as authorities to be more transparent by
8:12 am
using open source software. and it's not the 1st move against success of surveillance either in 2019 san francisco between the 1st us city to enact, to complete ban on police, biometric at surveillance, boston minneapolis. they follow that lead without been mind. we discussed the pros, the cons of facial recognition with terrorism on security expert david low and former u. s. police officer don't like his own. there's a great saying in law enforcement that when you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail. and all this does, it may have the great grand scheme idea of you're going after some very serious offences like child sex trafficking. i'm missing persons or terrorist activity, but i don't care who says what it will always be used down to your lowest common denominator, which is your citizen, and it will be abused like crazy. you're then actively putting a tool in the police's hands to look for crimes proactively in the wrong way. i
8:13 am
think this is just, this is a door that's going to be open for some very abuse of authority. i don't think it's a good idea and it's you can put police in this mindset of that. everybody is a criminal. good news you are in criminals and terrorists, a terrorist threat both in europe. i know north america since we'll have enough dummy. so if you did look out, i mean i'm talking about dealing with serious organized trauma, trafficking, lots of dealing with trafficking, those type of fences and terrorism. and i think the point that was made, but you know, it's only allowing, like counter terrorism agencies, policing agencies in the u. k. will be like the national con, you know, a b agency. those things you wouldn't giving 70 police force. it was like when we were in the european union, michigan information system, which was a database that wasn't available. so the police force in the u. k. it was only to send an offices and the pounds, i just happens and all of them in the united states were,
8:14 am
were abuse. we just abuse. so if it was, if it was utilized and executed for what it was written up more than a 100 percent of the oversight was proper on that i think would be a great tool. i think that, but we just, we always take something that's, that's meant to be some way and we just, we water it down and we abuse it. it's about giving who has access as a day to store and also destroying data quest. read the question, installments on it, and making sure those safeguards in place. and that's why i said, you need judicial scrutiny. what's to make it say that it doesn't go all the way down to again, the lowest common denominator, which is the citizen and a detective, or a st. cops shriek up as a bad day. and he wants to go through all the backlog of your activity for last 6 months and charge you for a crime that you committed 34 months ago. poland on a collision course with brussels. it's after war sauce, top court rule that some european union laws clash with the countries constitution
8:15 am
. and the timing is making the issue even more acute poland currently seeking billions of euro and e u. recovery funds, or europe correspondent peter oliver picks up the story. there are shots fired in that confrontation between warsaw and brussels and the constitutional tribunal. poland talk court is basically said that the polish constitution has precedence over you law in the country. the primacy of constitutional law over other sources of law results directly from the constitution of the republic of poland. this has been clearly confirmed by the constitutional tribunal. it's very important to point out the polish prime minister material more vertically says this isn't a sign that poland is about to try and leave the european union. in fact, he says his country has no intention of doing just that, but we are hearing again things that sound like break that remember break that cost to do. it hasn't gone anywhere yet. well,
8:16 am
now we're hearing about politics. it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but it is what it is. in fact, here in germany, the press is fullest morning of talk about this being a legal polk said that poland has essentially, by making this ruling the try to pull itself out of the legal frameworks of the european union and france deeply unhappy as well. we've heard a condemnation from paris. the european commission has said that they have serious concerns about this ruling from the courts, while other e. u officials are clearly far from happy at this move, the verdict in poland cannot remain without consequences. the primacy of you law must be undisputed violating it means challenging. one of the founding principles of our union ease states must not stand by idly, when the rule of law continues to be dismantled by the polish government. neither can the european commission or money can't finance governments which mock and the gates are jointly agreed rules. this could be a go a different way though,
8:17 am
could be because these rulings from the courts only become law when they're published by the polish government. now, what could happen is the could take this ruling from the constitutional tribunal and go, we'll pop that in a draw for now. and maybe we'll look at it a little later because what you have at the moment is a situation whereby poland isn't getting tens of billions from the european union encoded recovery money. poland can look at other member states. we've already received that cashier already spending their cash and wondering well what, how are we going to make sure we get out? so we may well see this ruling from the court used as some type of bargaining chip to try and find a rapprochement between warsaw and brussels. but it certainly doesn't look good at the moment. and some of the concern that's been shown from the european side, certainly justified, as poland says, essentially the rules and its country supercede. those of the european union, the nobel peace prize winners have been announced for 2021. and it's surprised that
8:18 am
many alive link up with our correspondent on that shortly. ah, mom, mom, when i was so wrong. when i just don't hold any rules yet to see how does the become the applicant an engagement? it was betrayal. when so many find themselves will define, we choose to look some common ground. ah ah, ah ah
8:19 am
ah, ah, with so ah ah, hello again, the nobel committee has announced the winners of this year's peace prize. it's going to 2 journalists, a filipino and a russian for promoting freedom of expression less now cross to our correspondent dmitri polk. dmitri, the announcements taken many by surprise. tell us more about the journalists and why they're being recognized by the committee and also well in the run up to this
8:20 am
kind of for this nomination, everybody was excited and curious to see who would be this, who would win this year's nobel peace prize. because in the past, it's always been a controversial matter with a lot of very controversial nominations throughout the years. over this years, decision also turned out to be well quite unexpected than our region. nobel committee decided to split the award among 2 journalists for their contributions to safeguarding freedom of expression. the 1st journalist is maria reza of the philippines. she is the co founder of raptor or digital media company for investigative journalism in the philippines. according to the nobel committee, her work focused critical attention on to charities regime and controversial murderers anti drug campaign, among other things. now the 2nd journalist, to who to win the nobel peace prize is the russian journalist dmitri murat of. he's actually the 1st russian citizen to ever receive the peace, the peace prize. because before that, only 2 people from the ussr had ever received it. a scientists and human rights
8:21 am
advocate on the soccer of and the former president of us. sorry, michael gorbachev. now the thing we're out of is one of the founders and the current editor in chief of the independent newspaper, nova gazette, literally the new gazette. and since it start up in 1093, it has published critical articles on subjects ranging from corruption to police violence to war. and since the newspapers start, 6 of its journalists have actually been killed, including an appellate cosca who was killed almost 15 years ago. to the day who she wrote revealing articles on the war in chechnya. now while 6 men were jailed for her murder, it is still unclear who exactly ordered that killing. however, the decision to give more out of the prize is kind of set to be controversial within russian liberal opposition circles, especially because many of them hoped that the jail to look sane of volley would received it. however, the kremlin has congratulated murat of on his achievements and mark that he is a talented man who has held on his ideals for several decades. all at this point, however, more out of himself has said that he does not feel like the prize is his accomplishment
8:22 am
. he feels that is the accomplishment of his staff, and especially the people who lost their lives working for him. he has said that the money that comes with the prize will be given to children's charity foundation . dmitri, thank you very much for taking us through the winter of this year's nobel peace prize. turkey has joined algeria and lashing out of the french president after a manual micron suggested there was no algerian nation before french colonial rule . i'm for brandon microns, where it's a populous move ahead of next year's presidential election in france. turkey and algeria joined, numb, expanding list of nations now at loggerheads with paris. after that us, charlotte davinsky reports. france isn't having the easiest of times. it seems to be rattling on multiple fronts internationally and was that it's waging offer
8:23 am
some foibles take. i'll g uria francis, former colony, it's resisting president mack owens attempts to draw the line and it has an ax to grind that didn't go down well and then to add insult to injury. my home blamed hatred towards france. young algerians hole in the political military system which had re written history based on lies when questioned. what is how interior was there, an algerian ation before french colonization? that's the question. how jury opposed 1900. 62 is built on a memorial rent that declares france is the whole problem. hugh, a recall done baset debt, while algeria also plays it as space, see the french military notes? colonial presses are not to welcome the country, essentially said,
8:24 am
this amnesia which pushes process official relations with some of our countries into unfortunate crisis situations should result through unconditional mutual respect. that's not the only trouble facing france. in africa. marley has a summons. the french ambassador for split nations. it's furious that has crawled, seeks to withdraw its troops. he can still think that he can hold the fort by sabre rattling, but if you're near the left hand button, the situation arising from the end of operation back on puts molly in a fait accompli bundling those mid flight to assist. thank and it forces us to explore alternatives and means to better insure a security, a ton of mostly or with other partners. and then there is this whole mike seek to pastor feet.
8:25 am
there was no why that we could have taken this decision without it having and causing disappointment and hood to, to france this, this there's no way we could have avoided that if it wasn't bad enough that a straight country which ranks a few more than several runs below france and military strength shocked it all for a rendezvous with the u. s. it also invited the briggs fuckin. he is alone for the jolly, the french what's serious and found themselves crying out. which brings us to the u . k. my horn has often been compared to napoleon the will he get caught in the next of his very own waterloo truancies. so insensitive over the u. k is refusal to lactic
8:26 am
fishermen troll they catch in british waters. it's even threatening to cut the country's electricity supply. surely it would make more sense to just pass on the increasing costs of energy to the bricks, making them pay double, but no maximums. government is forcing a battle of wills who will blink 1st. all of this comes as a friendship president is set to face his stay 1st competition to date. as the presidential election hurtles closer, many at suggesting the only person who blow a hole in makins hopes is well himself trans has lost his position for some time already. i would say, since the end of as president transit is lost, its position on the little stage of france has decided to follow the steps of the united states and nato. and we've seen the catastrophe of that in afghanistan and
8:27 am
iraq in extra isabella. now we've seen that france is totally lost. it macro is just living on the doors at france just to have and now it's just finding out that this power, that france thought it had. he just doesn't have it. he's not the only one. he's just the one which is a he is the president wishes exposing this to the, to the, to the public. that france is no longer the power. it used to think it was another story now. and it really is an inspiring one of cooperation from the middle east. the lives of 3 women helping save by a historic series of kidney transplants between israel and the united arab emirates . it's a major boost for medical collaboration between the 2 nations, which a snobbish ties just over a year ago. ah,
