ah holland's prime minister lashes out at brussels, accusing it of blackmailed as the european commission chief threatens action against warsaw for rejecting european laws. we cannot end, we will not allow our common values to be put. at least the commission will act. and the options are old, no british families to the government over the deaths of their elderly relatives in last year's covert. wait, we hear from a nursing home physician who says the authorities broke their promises to goldman, that being completely honest at the time, he said it are people in nursing homes and town homes been almost a cigar loss which we still are. this is about what the government promised was how and what it really was. former british spy, christopher steel blows his cover,
8:01 am
5 years after his bomb shell, dosier on a legit trump, russia collusion. he now admits it was not 100 percent accurate. ah, broadcasting live from our world news headquarters in moscow. this is r t international. i am your host donald quarter. welcome. there's been a fiery exchange in the european parliament today. the polish prime minister launched a tirade against e u institutions and a confrontational speech, accusing them of overstepping their powers and even black mailing the country are cheese. charlotte, who pinsky has the story. fiery doesn't go half the way of describing some of the accusations that have been thrown there was mud slinging throughout this session at the european pol and by the polish payment is down also by m. p. 's right back at
8:02 am
him. this was meant to be the opportunity for the polish prime minister to come to the european parliament to try and heal these divides these divisions between his country and the european union. his speech seemed to have done the exact opposite with emmy peas accusing him of leading towards a government of totalitarianism and undermining the e. u. its foundations itself now might have ad skis talked about. some of the issues that you rip was facing. he refused to accept and said it was not right for emmy, please, to essentially blackmail other countries within the european union by threatening to withdraw to hold back their funds. and he said that the constitutional law in poland would remain supreme to that of e. you law and he said that the idea of changing that would move the you towards a fully fledged governor bal state,
8:03 am
which is not what members signed up for. now during his speech, he was clearly overstaying his welcome when he was interrupted and told to wrap up version of that is yeah, yep, of in the bush for the move armatures frame in the for 30 bravo. you have to come on the van. oh shes so chairman, i was told by the office of david so sorry that i was a located at 3035 minutes so i will use my time. i cannot confirmed our success and says that things are gonna pay scale. i have to go, not them completely, i'm. i'm coming to my ears, but don't the service there. me please had plenty to say. they said that the polish mp was slightly leading his country to leave the european union. one said they thought it was nigel for oz who was talking at that session while other emmy peas
8:04 am
took the opportunity to congratulate the anti government protests that have been taking place in poland and suggesting perhaps it, they should continue mac. i want to thank those polls he took to the streets who showed their faces to other poles, hundreds of thousands of them. real patriots took to the streets with national flags, proud polish flags, and european flags in the hands of a patriot should not be a nationalist. we have all this to you denials, but the truth is, your actions are a sly way to lead poland out of the union, unilateral illegal actions cannot be accepted and will have consequences. the sinister game that your playing is very clear. the sinister game is that you're putting upon the size, the constitutional court inside the bowl, and better politicize those additional court is criticized by who, by the european court of justice during your speech. i was not sure if or worse, listening to your to nigel, fresh to what you have done is in fact putting an existential tract for your
8:05 am
country. this is our road to exit. there is no room for alternative solutions. in other words, what you are proposing here and the day it's a constitutional backseat. the commission resident ursula vaughan delane, which was demanded that she in the commission act immediately. emmy piece called on her to reject the recovery funds for poland. they called on her and the commission to trigger the rule of law conditionality, mechanism v d l herself vaughan, de leon said that the commission would do everything to ensure that it protect european citizens from threats. we cannot, and we will not allow our common values to be put at risk. a commission will act and the options are all known. first, option on fingerprints, where we legally challenge the judgement of the polish constitutional court.
8:06 am
another option is the conditionality, mechanism, and other financial tools. the polish government has to explain to us how it intends to protect your pin money given this ruling of their constitutional court. this was supposed to be an opportunity to make amends. the eula rift to bring poland back into the fold, the bosom of the e. u. what transpired was any thing but that with the emmy peas basically realizing and saying out loud that they don't accept the pass that poland is on. judging by the session on tuesday, it seems that those divisions between poland and the rest of the you are even deeper and wider. british families who lost their loved ones to cove it in last year's care home crisis or taking legal action against the government.
8:07 am
ortiz shady edwards, darcy breaks down the case. 2 daughters, he lost their fathers, in cave, at head cow homes. at the start of the pandemic, are now suing the government. it's a landmark action, not just in terms of a failure to protect the vulnerable responsibility for aggravating the risk while victory won't undo their loss. they hope it may help to protect others. i do not want anyone else to go through what we have been through as a family. i feel terrible guilt. i feel as though she was locked in to die. met hancock's protective freeing statement was a lie. the defendant have provided no evidence of measures to put a protective frank around care homes in just 3 months from march to june. last year . some samples here for living and care homes died from the virus and england and wales with some official reports blaming. so. 2 inconsistent, reckless and appalling government policies for the huge death, all this weeks case against the department for health and social care,
8:08 am
once it held to account this case will give thousands of families a sense that justice has been done. if we're, when, what happened to the residence of care homes in the pandemic was a national scandal, the government's approach to protect and vulnerable care home residents during the 1st wave of the pandemic is one of the most devastating failures in the morton era . rather than their home been a safe place, it became a breeding ground for a deadly disease. if the government had been completely honest at the time, instead of people in nursing homes and town homes been almost a forgotten lot, which we still are. but it's not about that this is about people's lives. this is about what the government promised was happening when it really wasn't. everybody was involved that was treating this virus, which is like you say is on known virus and an unknown entity. who knows what we
8:09 am
had to do or what we could have done differently. and these are things we need to learn from. and the goldman should have learned allies ain't going to get you anything. the sailors surrounding her homes are one of the biggest scandals of the pandemic for mass discharge of elderly patients from hospitals to cow homes without testing or isolation. and who can forget when the government says that hands wouldn't be affected at the beginning of behind them. and of course, we now know that they were the worst affected earlier this year. and in to 12 of march, the government's own official advice worse. and i'm quoting from it remains very unlikely that people receiving care in a care home will become infected. it wasn't true that the advice said that or government guidance published on the 25th of february of 2020 said twice. it was very unlikely. people receiving care and care homes will be infected. this advice was withdrawn on the 13th of march. a few months later, boris johnson tried to shift the playing, saying it was cat homes that didn't follow the rules. many didn't really follow the
8:10 am
procedures in the way that they could have so well, this week's cases, ultimately about 2 families search for justice. it runs far deeper, alleging a string of government blunders. but it may also end up serving as some small solace for all those who lost loved ones as a result of those very mistakes. i was the 10 people that we have done it. i could say that i was 99.9 percent. sure, sure. 3rd, and all of them died as a result of cove it but i think we only had a 3 positive tests because that's all it was available at that time. and 2 of those were testing hospital in one was the one that i fall off. we didn't notice in care homes, my hancock stood on television and quite often at 5 o'clock when he was doing the briefing with the prime minister. we as a nursing home were standing watch this briefing with interest obviously to see what the changes were, what was happening on
8:11 am
a daily basis to be to see. i stood in front of the cameras, said all holmes and now i'm being tested. we weren't at all, absolutely not. russia's foreign minister has accused nato of burying co operation with moscow after the expulsion of several envoys by the alliance prompted moscow to sever diplomatic ties. now we're going to cross live to ortiz ilia patricia co ilia. so quite a sharp deterioration between russia, nato, dont' think. could you bring us the latest don, hey, there. well, indeed, i've just heard some very critical remarks about the actions of nato by the russian foreign minister, sir galeb rav here and sought she, and this is about the following story is eat for now. moscow has a mission in brussels, um, which is where the nato h q is, of course. and the purpose of that mission is to deal directly with the nato
8:12 am
officials, of course, but just in 10 days on november, the 1st the mission will shut its doors completely. why? because as sir elaborate has just put it in saw cheek. nato has pretty much done everything to room dialog opportunities with moscow altogether. so nato buried the idea of consultation with russia. we believe nato should take the 1st step in improving relations with the way the west is reacting to. russia's response to nato is an attempt to shift blame. it demonstrates to lack of diplomatic culture, but also however, as the russian side is putting it, it's not that the russian government is keen to get rid of this channel of communication. i. e, maintaining its mission in the belgian capital. it's just that earlier this month,
8:13 am
a group of russian diplomats were kicked out of brussels altogether at meaning that only 10 mission employees could stay there and a half the russian foreign ministry is saying that with these 10 diplomats it's simply impossible for the mission to function and that's why they have made this decision. so the result is these critical remarks bite surg, elaborate, and it looks like relations between at moscow and nato are only continuing to deteriorate no matter what. however, when it comes to some of the bilateral contacts between the, perhaps the number one country nato, that is the us, of course, and moscow when it comes to specific stories like afghanistan, there could be progress, for example, because there is a new envoy in her that was appointed by washington in afghanistan and he, according to surgery lab, rob has already been in touch with russian diplomats and 3 elaborate said that
8:14 am
he'll be welcome in moscow when it comes to consultations. as specifically about the things that are happening in kabul and elsewhere in afghanistan, art easily per tranquil thanks a lot for those updates. the author of a bombshell dossier on the legit trump, russia collusion is standing by his claims while also admitting they may not be 100 percent true. former british by christopher steele has spoken out to the public for the 1st time about this. the document was compiled in 2016 and contained detailed allegations of a conspiracy between trump's associates and the kremlin. there were also some saucy details about donald trump, supposedly escapades in mos in moscow hotel room. none of these allegations have been proven, however, and the f b. i later published heavily redacted pages showing the agency had paid steel for his work, but cut him off as a source after he disclosed his us intelligence links to a 3rd party. years later,
8:15 am
there are still many unanswered questions regarding that steel report and how it came to be as r t more, i guess, do you have reports? the steel dossier has been one of the most mocked derided but, but also talked about reports in modern political history. the spot being mostly dismissed as, as a work of fiction. it has just refused to die. and christopher steel is back again . hyping and defending. he's much maligned dossier. christopher still isn't. it isn't hero is he traitor. crisper steals a guy who picked to fight with 2 presidents, donald trump and vladimir, and he's live to tell the tale, mind the spoilers. there aren't any new revelations or poverty details. as with the 1st dossier, this time chris tries to defend the dossier. the multiple falsehoods and inaccurate season make believe miley tries,
8:16 am
unprepared to accept that not everything in the dosier is 100 percent accurate. i've yet to be convinced that that is one of them. yes, he says there are some things in my dos here that are literally made up, but he sticks, it seems by the p tape. his allegation that the russians film donald trump with urinating prostitutes, and he has a stella argument to back it up, prove me wrong. he says, you tell him that no one's ever seen the staple heard of it, and that he's the only source ad. well, that doesn't convince chris, it hasn't needed to be released because i think the russians felt they'd got pretty good value out of donald trump when he was president of the us. the most remarkable thing in my opinion, is what still dossier supporters. a saying they can't defend the dos hair itself, it's at so full of holes and lies. so they've come up with
8:17 am
a different method. it was the russians who painted the dossier by purposefully feeding christopher steele disinformation. it's very likely that the russians planted dis, information in and demand other information that may have been truthful because that's exactly again the way that they operate. the victims of christopher steals reporting have also reacted michael cohen, who the dossier accused of secret meetings with a russians in europe. he had the f. b, i get involved. of course, they found no evidence of any such meetings ever taking place, but regardless mister co indeed react. he said that he was pleased that christopher steel had cruel that of the pop just long enough to make up a few more stories. i'm not too sure that everyone is as please abs chris. the once was quite enough. there's nothing groundbreaking. of course. he's being, he's being interviewed by a very sympathetic,
8:18 am
a quote unquote journalist stephanopoulos has been an operative for bill clinton in the democratic party for a long time. although looking at the mainstream coverage, this sort of rehabilitation of christopher steel seems to be seems to be coming around. you have to scratch our heads even the f b. i stopped using him as a confidential human informer because i found that he was too unreliable. i think one very important aspect is the collusion of the u. s. mainstream media in this, they absolutely fell down their jobs were expected. someone like steal to be a liar. we expect the people that hired him to be pretty dodgy people. of course, that's the case, but we did, we, at least once would expect, i would have expected the u. s. mainstream media, u. s. media to have looked into some of these stories before reporting them as if they were fact. editor of germany's best selling tabloid build has been fired over allegations of sexual misconduct. the papers owners explained the move right after a story on julian wright health appeared in the new york times. as the executive
8:19 am
board has learned, julian reich held still fails to maintain a clear boundary between private and professional matters and has also been untruthful to the executive board in this regard. the executive board therefore considers the termination of his office to be unavoidable yearly and i felt woke up on monday morning is probably the most powerful newspaper in all of europe. by tuesday morning he had been dismissed from his role as the editor in chief of germany's most read tabloid newspaper build. now it came about following claims that he had exploited his position of power in order to conduct sexual relationships with junior employees. this all came to light in an investigation and a publication by the new york times. perhaps one of the reasons why this happened in the united states is that the spring, a group, a parent company for bills that runs build as well as all the media outlets across
8:20 am
germany in europe. well, they branching out into the united states and just the summer spend $1000000000.00 buying politico, so they put themselves more on the, the radar of us publications. it's interesting that despite some of the allegations that have come out claims, that there was a hostile environment for women in the build news room, one of the quotes that's used is from a woman who said that she had a sexual relationship with mr. i held and says that that's how it goes. bill, both that sleep with the boss get the best jobs of despite all of that, coming out the 1st reaction from spring a group, the media jain that runs build is to say we're going to find out who leak done and we're going to see them the company is taking legal action against 3rd parties who attempted to influence and instrumental eyes. the spring compliance investigation by unlawful means, evidently with the aim of removing julian wright helped from office, as well as damaging bills and axel spring up. now that had been an internal
8:21 am
investigation into the conduct of miss that i held earlier this year, and it's from that internal investigation. and a lot of these documents have been leaked to the press. the allegations made against mr. i helped with that he carried out sexual relationships, the abused his power in order to conduct those sexual relationships. and that he'd use drugs on company property. they decided following that internal investigation, not to dismiss this, that i held from his job and see they've changed their mind now. in terms of response from the former editor of bill t has issued a short statement in which he said, what i blame myself for, is that i have heard people. i was in charge of. however, perhaps what is the most interesting thing to come out of this and it doesn't paint the german media in a particularly good light is that the soul could have come to light a long time ago. in fact, there were 2 previous investigations that were quashed. now what is being revealed
8:22 am
by the new york times is that these investigations had gotten to the stage whereby both mister life has and the accept spring. a group had been confronted with what had been found out and then the inferences that at that point pressure being placed on the, the publishes, that were in charge of those carrying out the investigation and got the journalists to kill the story. the fact that it took a foreign publication to make this all public haven't gone down particularly well here in germany. but the genie is out of the bustle now as it were when it comes to the practices in the build newsroom. i'm the business practices of access spring, as one of the world's largest and most powerful means you're organ i nations. russia plus 5 of its post. soviet allies have launched some of their largest military drills in years and central asia tanks and thousands of soldiers have amassed into dykus down along the border with afghanistan. and there bracing for
8:23 am
any potential spill over from the chaos. now gripping the taliban held nation reporting from the scene. here's ortiz seekers, donna, some 4000 troops, 500 military vehicles, and 6 nations, all participating in day one of were expected to become one of the most impressive and large scale military drills. taking place here in the steps of a country that is sharing a more than a 1000 kilometer long border with of garrison. tajikistan is a former soviet republic now operating under the umbrella of the collective security treaty organization, a russia lead military alliance. the war games there will span out over the course of the week ahead. and while the 1st day has been quiet, there's plenty of action to come. certainly, judging by previous drills,
8:24 am
the location for the games. just 8 kilometers away from the border with a canister is not a coincidence. when the taliban grabbed power in cobble things got tense on this side of the border. when islamic states started to take advantage of the power vacuum, it got even more serious generals do not shy away from openly saying who the show is for which in your midst this location for the drills has been chosen. according to the practical tasks, the armies have to do. we choose with several rules in mind. firstly, we go by the logic, the more you sweat in peace, the less you bleeding was creating realistic conditions on drills helped armies to prepare for the real action. the real sites under the real conditions. it's a situation that's going to need some heavy duty whoo gaming. and sure enough,
