5:01 pm
well, it's good to have you with us just a midnight here in moscow now, thursday the 21st of october. my name is colleen bry. welcome to your world news 1st and staff shortages surgeon cobit cases and pressure on the national health service. the n h s of all led to another crisis in england. it's been reported that in parts of the country, patients are waiting for almost 50 hours to get a bed in accident, an emergency unit. and one case, a patient reportedly spend 47 hours in line at the role preston hospital. and i was dr from manchester while in the southern county of suffolk, a teenager with serious mental health problems had to wait for almost 48 hours in the emergency room. according to local media, the chest foundation trust for the area said that the weight was due to a lack of specialist facilities. lou winchester, who had a relative, affected by the crisis, told us what happened to his family. he woke up at 11 o'clock and his
5:02 pm
legs just wouldn't work and he fell out of bed. we didn't find him until 3 o'clock where my dad's going to get cooler, where he shouldn't heard from him. when we called for the ambulance initially they said not to leave him. oh, in case the best spinal injury off white. you saw a couple of hours my, my dad sort of still trying to hurry them up a little bit. tried to finding no, no, no, and again to ask when she was an estimate arrival that direct him to 111 who would then turn him back to 992. and i'm writing that eventually we speak to a chap, he suggested how to move him back into his seat and how to get him up and we did that is improving, but he probably still required medical assistance, but insinuated to us the not even a senior i just said, would you, would you like to cancel the ambulance on everything but the ambulance that day and at that point we took them at their value and said, yeah, okay,
5:03 pm
we'll cancel that and then we'll give him his dinner and get him into bed, et cetera. the course over the night i stay the night make sure that you know the noise is condition wesson's. and in the morning i school for another ambulance or report say the 91 percent of hospital beds were occupied in england as of last friday. and that says the number of people waiting for hospital treatment, they hit a record high. according to the n h s, or most 6000000 people are on waiting lists. and the coming winter will only intensify the pressure that at the same time, the british health secretaries admitted that the rounded up stuff to operate the country's emergency telephone lines, the 999111 that you just heard about. so g, g, i did a detail plan of action is being put together and that it will be unveiled soon. but blue winchester is not convinced every step of the way that mismanaged the crisis. aside from the vaccine roll or the re personnel, any faith in the current government and the people on the ground to
5:04 pm
a working really hard like the paramedics, like the people answering the cause. they're not necessarily always getting, given the clearest information. you know, i fully believe that when the person from 111 told us to talk to 999, and the bus are from 999 to talk to 111. i'm sure that i believe that's what. yeah, that's what i'm told to do. is i real simple answer as to where i think they're gonna fix it with their actions so far appear to be pretty inapt us from other up against on tuesday the u. k. registered the highest number of daily cove deaths since march, and the government extended its emergency powers related to the corona virus for another 6 months. the demonstrators, including anti faxes, took to the streets to protest this and other pandemic measures. german police have warned that the country's board with poland is at risk of collapse after a massive influx of migrants crossing over into the e. u from neighboring bella. bruce ortiz to peter oliver has more on the story. the
5:05 pm
european union is placing mounting pressure on minsk over refugees looking to enter the e u via bella roofs. now the german foreign minister has been among a group of, of senior german politicians that have pulled absolutely no punches whatsoever and their comments. hi, co must. the foreign minister has accused alexander lucas shanker, our rights of running an illegal migrant transport network. the zeros in o'clock we in europe are being confronted with the fact that lucas suncoast using refugees is a tool to put pressure on european nations. lucas suncoast, nothing short of the head of a state runs smuggling radar with arthur shift in new bill in and through belarus, stay tokenized, or at least state supported smuggling activities are taking place. the regime in belarus is now considerably expanded. the list of countries from where people can answer without a result, that's a form of hybrid threats. when my grants are being used as
5:06 pm
a political weapon horse, they offer the interior minister of germany here you just heard. there's also said that he wants to coordinate with his polish counterpart in order to have joint border patrols a long, not polish, or bella russian border. that border basically between belarus and the european union. there has been a deal done between brussels and baghdad. though in this particular issue, that is to make sure that no planes will be flying refugees from a rock into bell a route. so the route that quite a few people had taken. now, this airbag on flights is going to be in place at least until the end of the year. but what we're talking about deals, and particularly when it comes to refugees minds go back to 2015 to the start of the migrant crisis, which saw over 1300000 people seek asylum inside the european union. a deal at that time was done with turkey. turkey of course,
5:07 pm
was the country that the vast majority of people who arrived inside the e. you traveled across at the time, billions were given towards or promised at least, and certainly been hundreds of millions given to turkey. trying to make sure that people either remained in turkey or certainly didn't make or try to make that crossing. there's still a lot of reserve judgment when it comes to exactly how successful that deal was. and however, any sign of a deal being offered towards belarus, anne is non existent at the moment. in fact, the barrage of president alexander lucas shanker says that he's doing everything he can possibly to fight illegal immigration, but says that all he gets in return from his european partners is political pressure and sanctions. you're stifling us information we. you are doing it methodically and collectively. you are trying to destroy our economy and expect us to spend hundreds of millions of dollars protecting your cheer, political interests, like before. you must be crazy to think we will support you if you want us to help
5:08 pm
. you have to take steps in that direction rather than try to stifle us. it's hopeless. well, despite it not being what anybody in brussels wants or certainly not what they want to talk about publicly, at least it does seem that one of the only real ways to get to the crux of this problem may be for the a you to work directly with fellow roofs or earlier, an r t. dr. stephen gach, of the institute of european studies in belgrade, describe the attitude of brussels to belarus as colonial bell receipts being treated quite differently from turkey. we can see the clear difference in language and in deeds and there is this sense i will say oregon when. 3 i, when brussels is talking to them, sounds that i would even compared to their postcolonial cost. i would say this has a lot to do with,
5:09 pm
with the hybrid warfare with hybrid warfare against russia and billers is being seen as a, let's say, influenced by russia from the russell log ministration. and of course, from their western neighbors, the baltic states and poland. so i do think we have more concerns for geo politics here and for to human rights. the you has awarded a soccer of price for 3 of freedom of thought to rational position, figure alexi, nevada, the accolades given out annually by the european parliament to recognize what it calls perseverance for human rights. don't call to go more details earlier from correspondence, shall it davinsky is is considered to be the use top human rights prize, but there are concerns about how it's been used in recent years. we've heard now on wednesday that the 2021 recipient is alexi navarro. leanne opposition figure head
5:10 pm
in russia, who's currently serving jail time for breaching bail conditions. just want to give you a bit of background on what's led to validate, being in jail at the moment. lost in august, he was on a flight on his way to moscow, where he fell ill. he was taken to a russian hospital and then later requested that he was moved to a facility in germany. i. he was moved to that facility in germany and it was after he arrived there that there were allegations from the doctors that he had been poisoned with a substance known as norwood shock. now at since then, we had accusations from government, not just germany, but also across europe, accusing the russian government of being behind that poisoning. however, russian medical officials and officials at the hosp the way he was treated in russia, say that ad there was no trace of the poison when he was being treated that he did
5:11 pm
return to russia. and as a result of breaching his real conditions, he was sent to serve out time in prison, and that's where he is currently as recipient of this top a human rights award from the european union parliament. both charlotte, you mentioned that there are just a, just the beginning of your talk there, that there's been some concern about the prize being politicized. can you tell us a little bit more about that? yes, that's right. some any piece themselves hates out at this award, saying it's being used as a political weapon by the european union. and that's because the recipient doesn't just get 50000 euros and a statue. they also get the backing of the european parliament themselves. and as been just in the, over the last few years, the choice of the norman knees and then the people who get this accolade really have something in common. and that is that many of them have been calling for
5:12 pm
government change in their own country that start in 2020. when at the bell, a russian opposition at received this award at a time when the e. u is encouraging protests in belarus against the elected government fair in 2018 . it was a ukrainian film director who was in jail for plotting tara in 2017. it was the venezuelan opposition at a time when the e. u was sanctioning president madura of venezuela and in fact it was that year that emmy peas really hate out really started to get angry about this award at saying that the e u had undermined dialogue in venezuela. their words not mine, and as a result were boycotting the ceremony that year. they also accused the e. u. of instrumental lazing. human rights is the use of this award that the price is also been awarded to political leaders in the past. but some of since fallen foul of the you including anson suki in my, and man as a result,
5:13 pm
she's been stripped of her rights to be part of this exclusive community. the addition now of alexi, nevada, in the will, it increased those thoughts from many that really this is an award that is being used as a political tool by the european union, against those government sit dislikes or disagrees with well as the european parliament award bert one german m b p is far from happy at the decision at camellia and cross as the west applying double standards towards political opposition. that's unacceptable. you all know direct. good, mr. yvonne, the, when he came up to a clear races and then he was in russia for having for the, for, for making him with putting the money to a company and paying taxes. and that can be reached. now we
5:14 pm
reach now the situation that it becomes ridiculous and especially because because we have a neighboring country, which is the ukraine. and there is an elective ultimate with the arrest and be a government in putting a real elected opposition lead into arrest. on the other hand, we have a at least about food figure. so we thank you. and then we say ok, just take a look at a human life of human human rights. on the other hand, even recognize that we have a problem when it comes to refunding and double span of the hype to cry, fee makes the predictable isn't here without say on the way taliban leaders have been in moscow for multinational talks, the tackle are going to stand skew, monetary and crisis security that works. and it's next story. when we come back to
5:15 pm
the, the join me every 1st day on the alex summon, show and i'll be speaking to guess on the world, the politics sport, business. i'm show business. i'll see you then me ah ah ah
5:16 pm
ah ah oh hello again. now with the security situation in afghanistan, deteriorating taliban leaders have been in moscow of for talks focusing on the humanitarian crisis that's gripped the wall, told nation 11 countries to pass in the conference. i'll see, nick, i'll respond more, i guess d. f reports from the venue. this is been the biggest international events, attended by the taliban. yet 11 countries, president,
5:17 pm
all of us got astonished neighbors as well as russia, china, india, will representing near enough half of the world's population. vm here wasn't a concrete objective to agree on something. it was rather to discuss where to go from here because we're at something of a stalemate where by the taliban rules of kansas fog, but the international community east largely reluctant to recognize the taliban as the official government, as the official rulers of, of got a sudden and on the deck, an intended consequence of that has been that the life and struggle of ordinary afghans has been getting worse. and that was in the joint statement that all sides involve at his side. as of now, a 3rd of the population is on the verge. of starvation, taliban has said that it is open to foreign aid for humanitarian aid, food medicines being delivered so long as the conditions attached don't violate
5:18 pm
their sovereignty or religious principles. one, a peaceful afghanistan is in the interest of all parties involved just as we want. positive relations with others, we also see positive relations from the outside. we are committed to the principles of islamic sharia law. any aid or assistance that has been given. if it's in line with ours law principles, we don't have a problem with it and we're already, we're seeing some humanitarian aid. the session itself a, all the delegates met to place bod closed. those we were told there were many things that they agreed on, such as the need to stop now co trafficking out of, of, got us on the need to address the security situation that the, the attacks by isis, al qaeda and other terrorist groups that will, to also disagreements, disagreements about the makeup of the afghan government, the taliban insisting that its government is inclusive other countries such as russia saying that it isn't as inclusive as it needs to be. that this government does is packed with taliban officials. hard like taliban officials were passion at
5:19 pm
listen to the predominant about efficiency. there is very little representation by ethnic minorities or political dissidents, political opposition groups. and that is something that must change. but marcia also says that the, the urgent power t. now, at least to make sure humana aaron aid is delivered to i've got to stop by every one through which we moved is do. we are convinced that it's time to mobilize the efforts of the world community to provide cobble with effective financial economic . and she monetary assistance in order to prevent a crisis and to curb migration flows. we expect responsible behavior towards afghan citizens, 1st and foremost from western countries. his 20 year presence brought about the current deplorable situation and didn't in any way contribute in strengthening industrial or economic spheres. and afghanistan, again, 11 countries here will of, of got astonish neighbors plus russia, china press, plus,
5:20 pm
india all countries. the vested interest in making sure that i've got a son remains stable. the u. s. delegation by the way was invited, but the united states had it was unable to attend because of logistical challenges . another similar in the event of moscow format is plaid. there is no dates yet, but we'll get isis have told us that they're ready. once the need arises, facebook is paying out $14000000.00 in a civil case over discrimination. the u. s. social media giants accused of giving preference to hiring foreign workers over americans. facebook, he is not about the law and must comply with our nations federal civil rights laws, which prohibit discriminatory recruitment in hiring practices. the tech jain get certain positions mainly to temporary visa holders. a prosecutors claim that up to $2600.00 us work is lost out as a result. vote facebook was find almost $5000000.00 and it's paying out more than $9000000.00 in compensation to victims of the lawsuit against the tech giant was
5:21 pm
filed last year by the u. s. justice department. back then, the trump administration pushed the biggest tech companies to hire more americans for permanent positions. instead of temporary forum workers, legal analyst, jennifer de master, explain to us why facebook in particular, adopted that policy. a spoke and some of these other companies will watch these immigrants as a way for a but you save money while also preventing maybe lawsuits for unfair or discriminatory work practices. which in and of itself is discriminatory against actual united states citizens that we're applying for work and unable to get at the company like facebook, with a lot of money would be able, their, their high price attorneys, or be able to find a case that had narrow claims, but again, it's been brought by the department of justice itself. i think it's very surprising of people. many people who see facebook or some of the social media platforms is an arm of a political party. so it's kind of being this distinction drawn between this,
5:22 pm
what we consider politicize, or a bite and era department of justice, which should be friends with facebook. actually bringing a discrimination claim against, you know, this, this partner. so this story might be used by either the federal government, by the new situation, or by facebook to argue that the way we are different, you know, we, we, we can be held accountable up above the law. when in reality they've been working hand in hand for a long time and facebook has been acting as an ards, a political federal agencies in order to silence political opponents. nepotism storm has had leading us democratic party representative maxine waters who heads up the house financial services committee. so after her daughter was again exposed to pocket involved campaign funds, financial disclosure, reco prevail. she paid karen waters more than $80000.00 over the fiscal year,
5:23 pm
which ended last month. and that shoots the total, the karen's receive from her mother over a decade, long korea to up to more than one point. 1000000. she's been paid for running and uncommon federal practice called slate mailing. were consulting firms, hired to list rival candidates, and their policies and advisors who to vote for the congresswoman now faces coals to go. this is how democrat socialists work. they take care of their own while people they represent lose jobs, pay high taxes, and in many cases go homeless. i am calling on the resignation of maxine waters. she needs to be investigated. maxine waters did this before and face no legal consequences. she knows she isn't going to face legal consequences. now, the laws for any vague on us politicians using campaign funds to pay family members with election commission rules only demanding that salaries don't exceed the fair market value. but jonas daniels, i claims that such behavior is essentially corrupt,
5:24 pm
but nothing will change. the american political system is battering with this kind of corruption. just, it just goes on and on. no one pays attention to it. everyone regards it is normal and therefore nothing is done. i mean, this goes on says cross the board throughout congress and the presidency as well. i don't expect very much to happen because it would require a very rigorous kind of oversight. and much more rigorous than the american political system is capable of doing the, the, the standards in washington are very lax and they allow people like waters to get away with this kind of stuff. and it just keeps going on and on. and it never stops . i knew in this out with health organization is restarting its work on a proving rushes, splitting the cobra vaccine. it had been put on hold about a month ago or corresponded to may tree power because across this for as high as i
5:25 pm
said, was this mean for the timeline to approval? well, it seems, yeah, there were actually might be getting closer because the w a show has recently updated the status of the approval ratings process of disputing the vaccine which was put on hold earlier this month. however, now its been resumed and is actually apparently in its final stages. all that remains to be done right now is for a team of inspectors from the w reach out to visit russia to finish shop, all the necessary paperwork the inspections, but russian health experts and officials hope that the process will finally go through and be go, be smoothly, just within the next couple of months. now, as a reminder, the splitting the vaccine was one of the 1st ones to be developed and see widespread use right now is available in 70 countries and has an efficacy rating of over 97 percent. however, throughout these couple years, the vaccine has also seen a lot of controversy which has significantly hindered its approval rating from process in the west and w. a show is yet to recommend it or recognize it. however,
5:26 pm
if this approval process does go through smoothly, it would mean that people who have received the sporting fee vaccine could soon be able to travel to countries which looked to the w h o on what vaccines to recognise . because right now, if you took the think the vaccine and want to trial to country, which only accepts a w h o proved vaccines, you'd just either not be able to get a visa, or you'd have to take another vaccine, w h o approved vaccine. however, it seems that with the supreme rating going on in reaching the final stages, that whole process, the problem could become a thing of the past. yet could be just weeks away. of course, with any of 7 vaccines in the mix, every little will. how for those countries struggling to get hold of one, okay, correspond, dimitri poke. thanks for that. okay, that's it. so from that he's room for now. i'm calling bray. i'll have your next update in around 35 minutes with. mm.
5:27 pm
welcome to max hazard, financial survival guide, looking forward to your benefit down the ice. this is what happens. dimensions in brittany. does this up of you watch kaiser report? ah, ah, ah ah ah, ah, a ah.
5:28 pm
when i see black america i see kind of myself. i was growing young black american spoke to me when white australia did not have those who say black marsh magic is a movement, we are importing from america. no, nothing of who we are. i lived in a world where white lives mattered. and i was not why like mission and i wasn't known from black america. i learned how to speak back to whitefish aboriginal people here more every day. we were out loaded system. now with the police were at war with she states, i'm scared that more children are going to grow up in the country that think says no racism,
5:29 pm
but they're more likely to end up in the criminal justice system. then there are other fellow friends in daycare ah ah, with hello and welcome to cross stock. were all things are considered i'm peter level. is there now a dual system of justice many think so, for example, a former senior f b, i official lied repeatedly to his bosses, but now is exonerated. but a former head of the national security council did not lie to be f b i and his life was destroyed. where is the justice in that? ah
5:30 pm
cross knocking dual justice. i'm joined by my guess, lionel and new york. he is a legal and media analyst, boston. we have sabrina. so bobby, she is the host of the sabi subbed podcast and co host of the fred hampton left this podcast. and in tampa bay, we cross to david or north sky. he is the national radio host of neighbors choice or cross type roles in effect. that means you can jump in anytime you want. and i always appreciate it. let me go to you because you're the 1st person i thought of, but i wanted to do this program at the end of last week. there seems to be more and more cases of gross injustice where people break the law and get go. scott free people that are under suspicion of breaking the law. nonetheless, their lives to detroit. of course i'm talking about any mccabe and michael flynn. ok. both were accused of blind to the b. f. b i one did one got off the hook, his whole pension, the whole thing, and the other guy left bank.
