o, i thursday, just off the 2 o'clock in a pretty rainy, cloudy day here in moscow. but a big program for you on our to you international. i'm rural, re sushi, welcome to. so europe, it may be in the grip of an energy crisis, but gas prices have started to full. and the downward trend was sparked off those items put in told the chief of the russian gas giant gas problem to ratchet up supplies, to european storage facilities. next month, earlier my colleagues at daniel hawkins on to elliot katrinka discussed what the russian president had to say posted. okay, i ask you once you have finished pumping gas into underground storage facilities in russia to start work on increasing the volume of gas in your underground storage facilities in europe, in austria and germany, what exactly did the russian president say to cause this plunging gas prices well, this is how the market's work. they almost immediately reacted to the russian president's decision to make gas from the russian energy giant increased the
volumes of natural gas in its european underground storage facilities. after such facilities are filled in russia, the prices for european natural gas futures went down by 3 per cent. and the russian energy giant expects its storage facilities in russia to be filled by november the 8th. so right in less than 10 weeks, the volumes of natural gas in the european storage facilities will start growing. and this is indeed a true relief for european consumers ahead of the winter season. but perhaps more importantly, following an incredible surge and gas prices in the last several weeks. now, during the meeting with the rushes senior government officials of latimer potent once again weighed in on the roots of the energy crisis in europe. america
learned as though the situation on the european gas market remains unstable. the reasons are a decline and domestic gas production in europe and a reduction in liquefied natural gas, primarily from the united states. but they removed a significant amount from the european markets by the way, gas from replenished us and even delivered more than the americans withdrew. at the same time, the demand for gas has also grown due to a drop in energy production from renewable sources. and the closure of conventional generation facilities. obviously this is why the balance has arisen. do you see a lot of consumers in your premium sovereignly following this ability? what else we hearing from the european side on these latest updates? well, we're using the word relief, but the question is whether anyone in europe will actually notice the efforts on the part of russia and praise moscow form the help and the approach that it has chosen for the time being. because actually, in the past few weeks,
we've only been hearing many critical voices in the critical of moscow blaming russia for using it's natural gas exports as a geopolitical tool. some of the nations are continuing to act as the staunchest enemies of gas prom and natural gas exports from russia. probes, investigations are being launched in particular. the european commissions competition department is currently gathering evidence to see if gas suppliers are manipulating the market during the energy crisis. they're not specifically mentioning gas from, but it's clear what they're driving at. only recently, poland coal on the european commission to open an investigation and to whether gas from broke 80 rules in failing to make extra gas volumes available on the spot
markets. but there you have a lot of prudent has sent a clear message. the volumes of the european storage facilities will be boosted with russian natural gas. the prices have fallen. busy and perhaps at this point, it will simply be unfair towards russia to fail to notice that these efforts on the part of moscow or otherwise that can all be explained through pure politics. we spoke with german mit maximilian, crime who feels moscow is doing more for europe than it actually needs to. and the reason is not that to do with political gain. what russia now is doing that it is supplying gas or what is contract it, what it's obliged to do. so without expecting anything in exchange, let's say the certificate of moultry him to so every one hotels, the russia wants to use gas,
a weapon to reach for the cold aim is now proven wrong. and that is the political message. and i hope that europe media will, will inform the people about it. what we have today in the opinion, that's all about gas. it is about blaming russia and preparing for another could warn you. have heard the gym and 57 who is talking about even having atomic option against russia. this is i pressure, this is a statement that we haven't heard even in the end of the cold war. we are back in the 984 in the late seventy's rep, people openly using crap and things that, that help them to gain confidence, emotion. not often, some one disappears entirely from
a list. so infamous as the f. b i's most wanted. that's exactly what happened to one man said to be one of the key figures in january's capitol hill rides in washington. he was caught on camera telling people to storm the building. it's got some including members of the republican party raising questions about who exactly the mysterious figure is. a correspondent caleb welcome picks up the story. an individual featured and videos calling for people to enter the capital building even before the january 6th capital riot and was seen on the day. january 6th, ushering crowds into the capital building has been identified by law enforcement as arizona resident re apps re apps, and arizona man scene invite la circulated videos, telling trump support to send multiple occasions to go into. the capitol also seemed to have acted on his own. i don't know, like a rebel, as i said, we need,
we need to know. i'll say, we need to go in the camera. oh, not surprisingly, he was on the f. b. i's most wanted list and was referred to as suspect 16 for some time f, b i w. f o is seeking the public's assistance in identifying those who made unlawful entry into the u. s. capital building on january the 6th. but now suspect 16 has been scrubbed from the f b i website. now if you take a look at the way back machine from archive dot org, you can see that from january 8th, 2021, all the way until june, 30th suspect 16 was pretty clearly highlighted, but suddenly, on july, 1st, he wasn't on the website any longer. now if he'd been arrested, he would still be on the website just with arrested under his name, like others who have been apprehended. but he's not,
he's just been scrubbed. this has prompted lawmakers to ask questions about whether or not there were f b. i provocative tours who may have helped events on january 6th to go the way they did. far as we can find this individual has not been charged with anything. can you tell us without talking about particular incidents or particular videos? how many agents or assets of the federal government were present on january 6, whether they agitated to go into the capital and if any of them did a. so i'm not going to violate this norm of follow the rule of law. i'm not going to comment on investigation that's ongoing. now the capital breach database has no entries or listings for re apps to some. that's a pretty big red flag. the ongoing mystery of re apps, he repeatedly appears in videos encouraging and inciting an invasion of the capital on january the 6th. yet for some reason has not yet been indicted or charged. even
his people with false involvement have been re epps is a free, mum, he has never been arrested or charged nearly 10 months after july. the 6th, the f. b. i in justice department, still refused to comment on with the eps has ever been served. a search warrant the up the eyes record when it comes to things like protests and provocations is not exactly squeaky claim. people can look up the history of cohen tell pro infiltration and other dirty deeds if january 6th is such a pivotal date in u. s. history as it's being presented, surely questions like those surrounding suspect? 16 demand answers. caleb mauppin, r t new york. lisa tempest. they are right now and we're waiting on the fate of wiki lease, found a julian sanchez. it is to be decided to day by the you case, high court. of course, it is the 2nd day of an extradition appeal hearing brought by the us blue sh.
julianna's orange, of course, is warranted by washington on 17 chargers of espionage. and though one of conspiracy to hack a government computer, if convicted, he could face a prison sentence of a 175 years. a correspondent shantia at was dashti is still outside the london courthouse. today is the day 2 of the expedition hearing for june. massage right here in central london at the royal court of justice. and now is the turn of the scientist louis really presents the case and hit back against allegations made as the yesterday by washington, including washington's office of an unprecedented package of diplomatic assurances that judah thought would not be held under the strictest accident additions in prison class. they also argue that prison god could even at present prevent suicide and also it down played the very fact that you're in a sanchez man, a lifetime in prison, desperately trying to open credit,
his psychiatric assessment and evaluation over the past few months. it's safe to say that the students on his lawyer absolutely fear, if it's available fine, read all of those such claims. they say the assurances are totally what this as a u. s. has was that the right side of the time, all of these decisions on his mental health, many people with low all of you just how high risk he is taking his own life even sell more just yesterday, becoming very emotional. i told me about the mental and physical health of her partner plus the old play, push a back on the key, mammoth revelation with people. the u. s. intelligence office is revealed, the i a plan and pearl to kidnap or even a fascinate. i doing this sound for this thanks. are really, really high today for the legal proceedings. and just yesterday, i spoke to an irish politician that wallace who told me keeping him behind bars is
tantamount to criminality. it's an remarkable testimony to his strength that he's still alive. they have done everything to break him. julian, the son has never promises a violent in his life. prism is really only for people does not care for both of behaving well and are a danger of civil society when nobody else has the business. obviously you are saying that this is a graduate person to get for you, and that's on. do you think that there's any real reality or any from it that would be a federal, it needs to be expedited to the united states as a risk and nobody joining people. he's a risk, he's a risk to the us department in the us military industrial complex because he's exposing the fact that they haven't been involved in war crimes, torture god knows was as the things done now, it isn't prison in america that's going to kill them. to fight that the americans
were not leg goal, will not allow him to get out of detention. i mean, the truth is where it signs life is going to be spared. it probably needs a political process rather than judicial process. politicians, it needs to stop tension that ahead. let this man live well, support isn't campaign. as for juno, sondra already began gathering throughout this morning to show darcy with him because they all do. it's not just students on that fits in the doctor today, but the fundamental tenant principles of freedom of press on the public, right? to access information for them. it goes far beyond the story of just one man, but actually this is all about trying to defend people's rights water this month, that history was made in orbit with the 1st ever movie filled in space. awesome saskia. taylor spoke with the creative force behind the project director of
clemency panko. you can watch the full interview here on our team throughout the day for our small snippet. at the end of this tour week, we flew into the don't the cooper. and i remember, you know, i was just like frozen out there, then we stopped flying because it was you and we were just looking, which is we were just mesmerized by. and so i guess that was the 1st moment that we realize, oh my god, we are up in space and here we are. here we're here. finally, i mean, song, i mean, of course people will train for years with, for us, the training was long to did filming a space also have its advantages, be able to give you something to back to the can't do head well, of course. yeah. that's why we with them there because i, i spend a lot of time imitating the 0 gravity than in the in space station. so i know the limitations of what you can do, even with a huge budget. even with $200000000.00 budget,
there are limitations and up there which you're trying to imitate for months there is just given you know everyone's is, is natural for them. when you are directing ah, a space film on earth. it's really, really, i mean, it's hard to twist your brain and assert in this, in the 4 dimensions some scenes i shot the way i, i realized that i wouldn't be able to invent on earth because i is just, your mind doesn't twist that way. oh, so a question, just how green does our energy need to be? and that is one of the big questions now looking to be answered at the eurasian economic forum. the event gathers together big hitters when the business world and beyond. and it's a well getting going today in the italian city of verona. with more on the agenda, i had his ortiz at charlotte do. well, as the new world order is stumbling,
this economic forum will be an opportunity to discuss the rise of what some are describing as a multi polo world. it will be a place where discussions will look at the relations between those in the european and asian continent and how they can best thrive in this new geopolitical, this new social, economical world. and of course, there will be the opportunity to look at how that can be best achieved. of course, the energy is going to be very much on the agenda. of course, you know that recently there was the worse lot of turbulence in the energy markets that our protagonist of the sir sector, of course, are everything that is considered consider that the carbon emission and so environment is also in the agenda. so it's your days of discussions. 8 big forums will be held to look at the big issues that are biting across the global
world at the moment. they will be discussed by diplomats by politicians, by big business, who will be asking the big questions and seeking to find the answers as they looked unpack what is happening in this modern world, including as countries are seeing relationships friday between them. the other issues are going to be discussing will be things that are really hitting hard at home here in europe at the moment, such as the energy crisis. they will be looking at some of the criticisms which have suggested. the reason the european union is in this problem is because it is moved too quickly towards green energy and to fast away from the traditional fossil fuel energy. they'll be looking at those criticisms and seeing how the european union can achieve its aims over the next few years was also ensuring that there is energy security. and of course, that be discussing tre and how that is going to play out in a post, because it will easily, it was strongly affected by
a cove id much reacted very well. people very disappointed and reacted the and now the government took the measures and from them it is under control. in italy, we are very proud of this, but this is another chapter of a very long struggle. it's not over. and so we still have to fight and react in italy rush and the rest of the world. this forum is seeing is a key way to promote dialogue between governmental agencies and civil society. it's being held here in the beautiful italian city of verona. and it's also an opportunity to showcase the strong economic ties between russia and italy, ties ap route through the century with 2 days of exciting discussions ahead will be bringing you all the latest here on r t. all right, let's learn a little bit more and discuss the use response to the energy crisis and more.
besides crossing life out to verona and the forum now and speak to russia as a permanent representative to the e. u vladimir chiz off. thank you very much for joining us here in our t international today. a pleasure to have you with us an emergency meeting of e, you ministers this week, it failed to find a joint solution to the crisis. why is there so much division between them? do you think well on this question, of course should the 1st address to them? i understand that there is a discrepancy of views on the, on the origins of, of the current energy crisis. and moreover, on their ways to come out of it. oh, there are people including the european commission, i would say, who argue the reason behind the these galloping as gas prices are linked to the insufficient extensively
out. so rates of introducing our renewable energy sources as if, if you pump a few more trillion euro's into those propellers and, and the solar panels, the sun will shine brighter and the wind will blow in the right direction at the right speed. that is certainly not the case. when do you, do you find if i can just jumping quickly? i think that's a good analogy. you used there because there was all this emphasis on renewable energy, but the skies are not always clear and the wind is not always strong. is that lack of consensus surprising at all? because at the end of the day, they all want the same thing, don't they? they all want cheaper fuel or are they more concerned about that political longevity of everybody wants cheaper, more reliable fuel?
yes, but how to get that fuel because of the european union is in a permanent energy deficit. of course, it has to import a lot of its energy and there are several energy suppliers. russia is number one, traditionally in both of guess, oil, coal, and fuel electricity. but there are other suppliers as well. and there is some domestic production, which is a red julie decreasing. so of course, the individual member states of the european union each has its own energy, makes their campus of favor. i'm using nuclear energy and expanding that. there are other countries there are i would say absolutely against
using nuclear energy and some are committed to winding down the existing nuclear power stations as early as next year, such as germany if they choose to get rid of nuclear energy to get through the goal, which is sensible enough, they will need certainly for the foreseeable future. a handle also in a long term perspective. for those unhappy days, when the wind is not blowing and there is no sun, they will need the reserve capacity and the best fuel for that is natural gas. most certainly set yourself. i wanted to ask you because ultimately the end of the day, it seems that a lot of this, you know, gas crisis from europe came from last summer when many of the countries didn't naturally fill out their gas reserves. of course, gas is also needed to generate electricity and power. now the use watchdog says
it's now gathering evidence of any anti competitive behavior from its main suppliers in the energy market. is that or is that a veiled shot across the bow of russian? do you think well, it's not the 1st of them to try to shift the burden of responsibility to russia and it's major energy companies got from there were attempts like that before. several years ago, there was an investigation which was close down in 2018 because no evidence was found. but it's not got from that is responsible. no russia, as a country that is responsible for the get and galloping gas prices. it's those o miscalculated in their energy policy and now, well,
in every business transaction you need the commodity, which is guess which is there in russia, you need as a seller, in this case, gas room. but you need to buy are willing to buy that additional amount of gas. and so the buyers, i mean, the european energy companies today are quite reluctant to, to order new volumes of, of gas from russia because of the high prices. they want to wait out until the prices go down and they eventually will go down and price is already going down. the prices have already started going down, sorry, after vladimir putin has told gas prom to start pushing up pushing up the exports here. so. so i want to ask you though, because the energy price crisis has led to a lot of finger pointing by the e u against russia. but also the media has been really drumming up some sort of
power noise across europe. i've been watching all the different networks out there as well. but i wanted to ask you though, how much of this energy debate should actually be blamed on the media? because the media's been doing a lot of breaking news about this and really kind of finding the fire, i mean, is there such a disconnect between european politicians or is the media also responsible for some of this fear mongering? perhaps i would agree because the media is i would say showing signs of i would say insufficient responsibility for what does reporting and actually the of the reaction to any negative development being like pointing fingers at russia, which is blame for everything. you know,
i remember how wow this story. oh, for over dependence on russian energy started. it was exactly 15 years ago. the year was 2005. and during a russia e. u summit in london a well places of prime minister blair was asked, how is the british government and the european union? and he was sharing the council out if uh it is not that worried about over dependence on motion of energy supplies. he was surprised and he said, well, this started 30 years ago before my time and nothing for preventative. the flow of oil, gas and oil. since then there were no problems. but he said that what
the media during that day and that evening, saturday, reporting this was the only story in town that over dependence is to we blame for everything and it has been going on for all these years since then. well, my situation here was history does have a tendency to repeat itself. list. i'm running very low on time here. my last question to you please. that's finally tons of cove. it, it's still with our stuff. rushers are sputnik v vaccine has still not been approved in the e. you can you, can you see that changing any time soon? well, let's distinguish between 2 procedures. one is a recognition of scrutiny as a vaccine. that is not the business of the you, that is the business of the w h o. the world health organization. what we expect from the european medical agency is the recognition of the russian certificate. so vaccination with g is a of the kind of problem hampering uh,
people to people context. hampering traveled between russia and the yoga countries and we're working on that and we hope to to have it resolved sooner rather than later time flooded miniatures off rushes permanent representative to the european union. joining us live from the forum in verona. we appreciate your time today, enjoy the forum, thanks for joining us. and russia, find yourself in the grip of another deadly wave of the pandemic at the number of cases and death sipping broken almost every day. now it's forcing regions to bring in new restrictions or a partial lockdown begun to day. here in the capitol as donald quarter reports, october 28th marks, the beginning of a non working period in moscow. and it was announced shortly after russian president vladimir putin declared a nation wide nonworking period, but for russian citizens between october 30th in november,
7th at this measure is meant to curb a record breaking number of new coven cases and debts in russia. since as of october 28th, the country has seen new cases skyrocket to an average of over 40000 a day with debts every day hanging around. 1100 people. i mean, the russian capital has also been hit hard by this pandemic facing over 8400 new cases a day. and over just over 90 debts now, going hand in hand with this non working period, non essential businesses have been forced to temporarily closed down. we're talking about cafes, restaurant schools, et cetera. but people actually are not being required to remain in their homes. and we heard earlier from the kremlin spokesperson dmitri pest cough, as he explained to journalists, this is not exactly a lockdown. in a recent speech, the russian president is called on the governors to use that powers more actively. they must act according to the situation. but i want to draw your.
