ah ah, top stores this hour on the cron, the new cove, it strain discovered in south africa presents a high risk globally. the w h o says that it spreads around the world with nations . now counseling flights of even keeping the fully vaccinated in isolation document suggests germany tried to pressure the united states not to slap sanctions on north for him to berlin. both washington shouldn't sanction allies, shoplifting and vandalism. as the festive season begins, flash mob and smash and grab robberies, put united states authorities to the test. ah! hello, good, happy with its monday evening an 8th here in moscow. my name's collin bray with the world news from arte international for said it's on everybody's mind. so all micron
12:01 pm
causing havoc around the world, the new coven mutations been highlighted as a variance of concern by the world health organization. and it's already been detected in multiple countries. there also fears that it's highly contagious, and even people who are fully vaccinated could easily get it. nations have begun closing their borders to curb it spread out. the 1st images of the new strain originally detected in south africa have been published by italian research is on the right is on the cron. on the left, it's the delta variant, the red areas you can see showing that it's got many more mutations this time around. and that means that the virus has further adapted, but it's not yet clear if it's more dangerous. meanwhile, some vaccine developers have already stepped in and said, they're ready to provide a modified jobs to fight the new strain, the producers of russia. sputnik v vaccine say they're working on a new shot and can provide several 100000000 booster doses by february if they're needed. also comes, as pfizer says, the little make her new version within
12:02 pm
a 100 days of the, the very in proves to be resistant to their current job. however, both developers believe that current vaccines should already be effective against the emerging strain. but as government, sir, figuring out their response plans, many people have found themselves stranded in south africa amid newly imposed travel bands. artes policy reports next from johannesburg, apple. this elation desperation, frustration, and anger. these are just some of the emotions that people here in south africa are experiencing. i'm here on the tambo important johannesburg. this is the main international airport in south africa. and as you can see, the airport is practically deserted. a far cry from the scenes we saw just a short time ago when thousands of people were riding here this but to get on any available flight. often announcement was made that most international travel in and out of fixed african states was being implemented. that announcement came as
12:03 pm
a complete surprise. you had people that were waiting boarded that was sitting on planes about to take off that they had to disembark. you had people that were waiting in the skies flying that had to turn around and come back. the situation such is that you now have tens of thousands of people who are stranded here in south africa. people who need to get back to jobs and families. and at the same time, you have so many people abroad, many of them, south africans desperate to get into the country. many of them have not been able to visit for at least 2 years. and they have loved ones, some of whom are sick, some of whom are elderly, here in the country, waiting to see them. i say to them, okay, i'm coming to check in. will i be able to get home? i'm only going 15 days to my mother. and she started the computer interested, all the flats for december had been cancelled. so if you go, you can get back. and if you get back, you're going to total parenting for 2 weeks and i've got 2 boys and i just knew
12:04 pm
that i, i actually had to knock board their flight and i was devastated and heartbroken. have got double vaccinated. i've got a booster shot. i had all the documentation, i could have got on the flight and that would have taken me to south africa backs, australia closed the borders so that they wouldn't allow anybody to come back into the country. and so hello feels excessive and it feels very sudden. but i feel like the other information is making them really concerned just in a few days. everything's changed. i was out, i got a message from a friend. i'm checking the news and then more and more news updates had to keep checking. not knowing what would happen, and then within 3 days, i mean it's all just completely changed and there's no way that i can go, i've been vaccinated 3 times, so i am as vaccinate as to be. i wouldn't make any difference. i do congratulate the, well, the leaders for taking such quick action, but i do think that they really need to do the properly informed before making
12:05 pm
decisions that really affect the lives of so many people. the prices for the few remaining flights out of here have skyrocketed as has the cost of mandatory cova testing. now the international community is very cognizant of the fact that as many as 7 out of 10 south africans have not been vaccinated. and this is partly because they're not enough vaccines in the country. and also because many south africans are worried about the long term effects of the vaccines that are on the market. now, south african scientists have been very vocal in saying that they were the 1st to come forward and be transparent about this new variant that has been found. they insist, it's not a south african variant. and that it is elsewhere in the global community that instead of being applauded, south africa has now been push on the blacklist policy r, r t, johannesburg, south africa and advice at the italian health authorities says the co preventative measures are only having limited impact on the do strain and this could be our
12:06 pm
reality for many years to come in while the u. k. is re introducing quarantine and a government mandated hotel for people coming from south africa or the british health. secretary also believes co, it's going to be with us since some foam forever. he was asked to learn to live with coven, we will never defeat it. we have to learn to live with it. we have to learn to live with it. as we have learned to live with flu, of course, it is not flu, and we need to learn more about in cases of omnicom have already been discovered in germany in belgium, the czech republic. and there are at least 13 cases in the netherlands that came after a flight of individuals came in from south africa. now in a separate development, dutch police had to read plain just before it was about to take off. after it emerged that 2 of the passengers on board had been in quarantine hotel and had escaped from that desperately trying to leave the netherlands to try and get home
12:07 pm
as that panic is spreading. it turns out that the quarantine hotel that they had escaped from there were individuals who had presented with the omnia corn strange. you really get a sense of just how scared people are at the moment. some individuals are now facing a lengthy stays in quarantines, which are incredibly costly, particularly in the u. k. for me there is just no ways i can afford 50000 rand, which is equivalent to 2 and a half 1000 pounds to be in a hotel in london. when my home is around the corner and, and i live on my own, we are consult oscillate. and secondly with the job that i was meant to start. if i'm now i'm starting approximately 3 weeks later, which means i'm 3 weeks without seller, which is basic, have worked it out, which is basically my rent money for the month. i'm a british citizen and i've lived there for 23 years. i have to find a way the government has to do something about the hotel quarantine and people are
12:08 pm
up in all that got government con, make these rulings and then expect their citizens to pay for it. you know, for those who were fully vax, as we heard from those individuals facing problems from south africa, they really thought the, perhaps this pandemic was about to be over, at least for them because they followed all of the guidance. they done everything that they were asked to have done. so this must be coming now is a bit of a cold shower for people in europe to realizing that having 2 or 3 jobs just isn't enough. when we faced these new strains that we know so little about in france, the french health ministers resigned to the fact that omnicom will be found here and says that the government needs more time to look at it. we don't use if you don't, and with only to you since it's circulating in the u. k. italy in belgium, it's probable that there is a case in circulation and france. researchers are looking at whether vaccines must be modified, but it's too early to say, since it was only discovered a few days ago. scientists who i spoke with on the telephone yesterday,
12:09 pm
including internationally say we need a period of around 10 days to no war. meanwhile, the ministers, the health ministers from the g 7 countries will meet later on monday to discuss this new variant and how it possibly can be tackled at the same time as the experts are really left in a situation with a race to understand exactly what this mutation means and what that means for the a fight for the end of this pandemic. 0, one of the 1st countries to ramp up restrictions is israel, which is closed its borders to all foreigners. we spoke earlier with danny down on his previously israel's representative to the united nations. he says the measures are unnecessary burden because there's simply not enough known about the new strength. finally, i think maybe it was too much, but it's better to be on the safe side when you deal with new variance and we don't have that data. but i hope that, you know, within 2 weeks time will be able to open our borders. you know, if you divide open everything up and stones more events. so i think you know the
12:10 pm
question, because we don't know exactly about the value we have cases actually. now we have 2 cases of confirmed there, only one very and you need well that's why the government, the started to act very, very fast and to close the borders to fall. and we allow only ladies to come in and those after rolling for 3 days. even though we haven't seen the base, you know, whether we should use the technology to actually one of those that carried the very end. you know, we have it or should the quarter to 4 people that's the baited and that will go to the supreme court. i'm sure again, so actually as we speak, the government decided to we initiate the policy, but only 2 people were confirmed with that by was either now, you know, they had a few people. i hope you will be the number, but i'm not sure the policy will state because that that meant that policy empowerment and in the public, you know, even possible to do,
12:11 pm
to shut down all the flights. why are we going to do that every time the, the new variance coming out? but the yes, i think we should, they want you to carefully and learn how to deal with that. and we should expect the public to be patient about it to cooperate with the guidelines. and other developments, as western governments pushed their citizens to get a booster shots, the world health organization has expressed opposition to rich nations extending their an occupation programs. while vaccination rates remain low, import countries across much of africa, for example, and less than 10 percent of the population has had a single dose. no more vaccines should go to countries that have already vaccinated more than 40 percent of their population. until kovacs has the vaccines it needs to help by their countries. get that to normal boosters should be administered except to immunocompromised people. most countries with high vaccine coverage continued to ignore our call for a global moratorium on boosters. well,
12:12 pm
that's a huge point of contention and conversation. right now, we put it up for debate here. it would make no sense to ensure that most people at least get their 1st dose of the vaccine love and then pushing for people to have the the booster. but then i feel important we have to look at the efficacy of the actual vaccine because we still know that people who have double days you can still policy and then also still and be affected by the virus off in. ready as one of the issues that i think they should be willing to. now i've seen that education is key because we do still have a lot of hesitant people. not wanting to take the vaccine. and also just really, it just seem quite unfair that they still mandate is now mandatory that health workers should have the vaccine. i think it should also include education, the immunity generated by vaccination. decays, it over time,
12:13 pm
particularly actually in the elderly, the most vulnerable, and certainly up to 6 months. these boosters just really have a really significant impact. seen that in real world data from israel, for instance, where they rolled out the booster campaign. so we can see the value of boost shot, you know, various are going to continue to be generated. ready was those of ours is allowed to spread, particularly in countries. indeed like south africa, where vaccination rates are lower than what this emphasizes the need to control the pandemic at the global level as well as locally. and it's all, it's in all our interests to support the role of arts. he's across the world and we shouldn't be in a position we're having to choose we should be supporting the increased manufacturing distribution of vaccines. and we should choose between boosters for the most vulnerable and elderly, and whether or not somebody else who hasn't been back. somebody gets their 1st job . and while the new cove at variance spreads across the world, joe biden and the mayor of san francisco are facing
12:14 pm
a public backlash after violating their own mask mandate. you can find that story on plenty more besides online right now with r t don't come into the news now and at least 4 people have been killed and another 19 injured because of severe storms that battering estoppel and popular tourist resorts. ah, we're wins completely knocked down that major clock tower. you can see as well as overturning vehicles, roofs, and fries. shipping traffic on the bus for straits being suspended on numerous plains, have been unable to land forecast of warning that the dangerous weather will continue in to late tuesday. and you link documents suggest to berlin, try to pressure washington not to impose sanctions over nordstrom to the german foreign ministry is also born the united states that sanctions against the new gas pipeline from russia. damage, trans, atlantic,
12:15 pm
unity as he goes down report next. well, germany has outright confirmed that it has reached out to some us officials to some your senators in a bit to discourage them from imposing new more sanctions on the north stream to gas pipeline that runs all the way from russia and into germany. the confirmation came in a response to a question to from a journalist with ortiz, roughly video agency have a listen. this is, there is a document suggesting that the german government at members of the you asked congress not to impose sanctions on the node stream to pipeline. because this new would undermine us credibility and damage trans, atlantic alliance. unity would you confirm the german federal government's efforts to come to the sanctions. i can see the departmental chiefs of both the foreign and economics and technology ministries visited washington d. c. recently and conducted fruitful negotiations with representatives of the u. s . government and congress. we are continuing incense coordination of efforts with
12:16 pm
the usaa ministration on the implementation of a joint statement on nordstrom to. we regulate exchange of views on the subject on many levels. our position in regard to sanctions is well known where categorically against any sanctions against allies. so they should not surprise anyone to have a car while germany could become one of the main benefactors from nordstrom to gas pipeline, becoming operational. in fact, it could help the whole of the e u, you know, deal with the energy crisis. but according to the german ambassador in ukraine, nod stream to gas pipeline is still at least 6 months away from that. now the whole construction has been hampered by some fierce opposition coming from the u. s. that has been slapping sanctions on various companies involved in the construction of the pipeline and coming from ukraine as well. see a huge chunk over rushes, gas gets into europe through caves pipeline. so now with a new,
12:17 pm
a modern pipeline in place, kia fears that had services will become obsolete. that's despite risk repeated assurances coming from both germany and the russian president vladimir putin. that nord stream to will not be turned into an economic weapon. wave of smash and grab robberies, shook the u. s. during the thanksgiving holiday and the weekends, black friday, sales with may pointing out that the police seem to be overwhelmed with the level of crime that erupted. and with the christmas holidays, just around the corner, people are asking if the authorities can actually keep their city safe with their hands apparently tied by new policies. more on that next from saskia. taylor. remember the days of good cop bad cop? well that gone in case you missed the memo. now every cop is a body. well, we need to completely this not. so let me police department. i
12:18 pm
know big often towards floyd's mother. people came for policing, budgets were slashed forth, then no go stop and such without accountability was in. so where are we now, while the politicians who pull the money plug, leaving police departments high and dry, might feel safe from that gated communities. but for the rest of america, while from coast to coast, from small town to big cities, crime is on the rise one year and the biggest annual spike of homicides in 60 years later states. and now trying to false truck return to the good old days of law and order to reverse the tide of rising crime. we need to stop demon demonizing and sabotaging the dedicated men and women who risked their lives every single day to keep the rest of us safe enough is enough. we cannot de
12:19 pm
fond the police. we need to refund the police. instead of less funding, we need more investment and public safety and a knife in the back of the democrat, lawmakers everywhere, almost 90 percent of marilyn's black voters back him. because if they have been most affected by fewer patrol cars in the neighbourhood, and this isn't a one off this year, has seen a wave of pro police candidates be elected all across the country from liberal seattle, to minneapolis, the very place george floyd died at the hands of a police officer, the lift really does go on. it turns out that lol assess is not as exciting in real life as it is in the weston's. and for the democrats already terrified of a mid term bloodbath. this could be a death knell already blue republicans, the proud gun toting law and order party
12:20 pm
a polling 8 percent higher than democrats nationally. it's almost like voters have realized that it's one thing to shout, to slow going to make a gesture. it's another thing to come up with a real game plan. it does not present any sort of plan for what will come after. there is no specificity as to what services which provide what law enforcement would look like. what residents can expect. police might be back in demand, but it looks like too little too late. the usaa saying, record numbers of offices leaving the force and recruitment numbers away down despite all types of incentives to boost them. when you start treating those who hunt for criminals as the criminals themselves, then also willing to go out and take a bullet few, a lot of the competent people who would make good police offices, a refraining because they feel that they can go to prison for doing their job, 3, a police officer, you put your life in jeopardy. now some feel they're not protected. the criminals
12:21 pm
have more rights than police officers to day. careful what you wish for what started as a catchy slogan and a bid to be with the voters turned into a radical agenda that's been kind to criminals and cruel to the lawful. when a major diplomatic snub, france says abruptly withdrawn its invitation to britain to take part in key european talks on migration. despite the deaths of dozens more migrants trying to cross the english channel. paris sets of the u. k is not doing enough to stop the record flows of asylum seekers. the lawsuit, legal and we're thank you. don't want to. great britain has firstly to take its responsibilities and limit the economic attraction of its territory and allow a legal way for asylum requests since they have to take their part. and secondly, it needs to take on the smugglers or 20 book british. i'm secretary pretty patel. described francis movers unfortunate emmanuel crohn's angry at an open letter from boris johnson in which the president thinks ships the blame for the migrant crisis
12:22 pm
to france. on 23000 migrants have tried to cross the english channel already this year almost tripled the number seen in 2020 the deaths of 27 asylum seekers on wednesday as being described as one of the deadliest days since the crisis began. and despite france snubbing britain that the talks, brussels says co operation is key. i think it's of the utmost import and at the give the highest priority to manage this difficult situation is important where the close of corporation between member states and together with our agencies. it's also important to work, of course, closely together with the u. k. we have to prevent lives being lost. we have to prevent, ah, a chaos coming to our external borders. form a u. k. independence party m e p. david cockburn says, britain must become less financially appealing to migrants. essentially, european union want to look, you know, offload a lot of migrants on ours and, and,
12:23 pm
you know, they, they have me doing, doing their best to stop them coming over. i'm quite frankly, the british government need to do something and i agree with the european union in many ways they've got brittle, has got to stop being so attractive to you know, to, to the glass forces throughout the world. the problem with great britain is it's very attractive because we, you know, in your opinion, you have to contribute to the system before you get anything out of it, or is britain is given according to need. and the problem with that is there is open ended and we ended up paying a lot of money for these people to come me a when they arrived. and, and, and of course they going to come to you, kate, get nothing in france. so there are, why shouldn't we want to come to the okay, we've got to stop that. it's got to stop with british taxpayers. great enough, trouble with coven at the moment. and our hot schools are in trouble. and we, you know, we, we just don't need extra pressure. and because being a big problem as well. ukrainian journalists and hot water after he uploaded a video and firing and artillery gunner,
12:24 pm
what he claimed were russian occupies. boy, i must admit, i may have been involved in the killing of some people and on bass, but exclusively in the death russian occupiers. your impetus of says that he posted the video on a national day of remembrance of a famine that devastated the soviet union in the 900 thirty's. but the videos being cited as proof of ukraine violating a cease fire deal designer and a years long civil war near the russian border. or critics of this gun took the twitter to vent their outrage. on their own. such journalist lift and ukraine looked like cave was chased away. all those who dare to tell the truth about ukraine shelling and killing peaceful population in dumbass. just blatantly violating minsk agreements and trying to shift the blame on russia. this video confirms not only the fact of the use of prohibited heavy weapons by the arm forces of ukraine, but also the fact that anyone who wishes can shoot to the territory of the dumbass
12:25 pm
republics in addition to the ukrainian military. if this is what journal is doing, ukraine imagined what their government and arm is doing and respond to the backlash here to put us off a dated his post in which he partly backtracked on his original words with the claim that the video had been shot, a long time ago was not in violation of any sci fi agreement for clarity on the situation. we had from journalist brian mcdonald who heads the russia and foreman, soviet union desk at r t dot com for what he's basically doing. if he's created a priest, and now whereas if you are a militia man, a rebel, or wherever you want to call them, and in the don bask looking at that on the internet, you're thinking how many other journalists are doing this. and you're starting to think, well they're making themselves competent there. and that's the danger of it. and you know, you're a boot yourself is a very radical guy. he's known for it. i mean he's, he certainly blurs the line between activism and journalism. but then again, this is a feature of ukrainian media for the last 6 or 7 years. i mean,
12:26 pm
you need to look at their twitter account. there are so many ukrainian journalists, you've got political statements on their twitter accounts, you know, ranging from crime is the crane to, to support of individual political figures in ukraine. something that wouldn't really happen in russia certainly wouldn't happen in western europe. for example. you could imagine that in any normal country, unfortunately, modern ukraine is not very normal. in any normal country, you will be prosecuted. i mean, he's a civilian, he's not a military officer who is fired and military weapon in a war zone. i mean, in any normal country that would get your jail time. you'd imagine. that's the way it looks for moscow. for now, your next day for me and the international team isn't around 33 minutes from now. lou .
12:27 pm
ah . the postal service delivers a $155000000000.00 pieces of mail every year. approximately 40 percent of the world's mail right now the us postal service is in the flight of its life is to remain that is really bad financial shape. now facing default, the postal service is a cash cow, and there was a way to pull money out of the postal service to put into a federal budget. there was a mandate that you're bringing a $100000.00,
12:28 pm
new revenue every month. the nature of privatization in the us postal service is very much hidden from public view. it's privatization from the inside out. that's a big business in money. it's not about the public and given them a service that they deserve. it's not about quality train workers. it's about with ah
12:29 pm
ah hello and welcome to cross stock are all things considered? i'm people about legacy media continue to prepare a western audiences for a military conflict and ukraine. another war of choice. also, the united states doesn't export much these days, maybe, except for so called values, or those values attractive anymore. ah, to discuss these issues and more, i'm joined by my guess was papadopoulos in london. he is a historian analyst, an author of the book arises, see in the return of russia to world politics and in plymouth. we have 3 kennings and he's the editor and founder of the 21st century wire dock. hi gentlemen,
12:30 pm
cross top rules and the fact that means you can jump anytime you want, and i would appreciate it. i was going to marcus in london. i pride myself on this program to keeping a microscopic eye on what's going on in ukraine. because when you look at the, what i to say is outright propaganda and western media about upcoming war in ukraine. of course, russia is deemed the aggressor, but they are, the audiences are being prepared for what the west wants to see happen when it comes to ukraine. i don't think nato wants to fight russia. i don't think the united states wants to fight russia, but they certainly are intrigued by the idea that ukraine may fight russia, which we all know what the result would be, and that is a planned result. go ahead, marcus. i am of the b, that's the well it is beginning to reach our climax regarding you. crime.
