3:00 am
ah, ah, yes, with the message coming from joe biden, the head of talks with his russian counterpart of the western media and goes into overdrive with allegations of an imminent invasion of ukraine. moscow says it's nato. it's causing friction in the region. with europe in the grip of a winter of discontent over soaring energy prices are great monitoring fuel poverty warns household hunting bills in the u. k. could so double could, i didn't stand it in south africa, say that they feel abandoned by the government of the ottawa's new post on the kron restrictions on returning a branded over complicated and confusing it really struck me that it is citizens, really trying to help citizens it's not the government trying to help citizens,
3:01 am
and i think it really needs to be the other way around. vaccination cooperation is the only way to be the pandemic. that is the warning from the president of the international federation of the red cross spoke exclusively to audi. ah, hi there, good morning and thanks for joining me on our t international. moscow has rebuffed claims that it is poised to invade. ukraine says that there's no relation to reality and ads that, that the americans who are acting belligerently in the region. this is western media and politicians of rach did up speculation about a possible war with the u. s and russian presidents to talk by phone on tuesday. joe biden looks in no mood for negotiation. oh,
3:02 am
of course, the diplomacy is out and read lines of that to be crossed when the big bad wolf is planning a land grab ring a bell. a similar warning came in the spring when russian troops gathered for snap training exercises. and again, when military drills were conducted in crimea, and only recently moscow was supposedly the mastermind of the qu, in key of remember the currency of no mean either because it didn't happen. in fact, none of the predictions came true, but this time apparently it's different. this time, it's the real deal, and to feed the fair, they're even drawing up the criminal battle plans the new year offensive. and for the umpteenth time this year, russia is forced to defend the presence of its own troops on its own land. russia is not
3:03 am
a threat to any country. the deployment of russian troops on the national territory is our sovereign roy and no one's business. it is nato on its members states a recklessly moving their military forces and infrastructure to the russian borders . so what is washes red line, us spy pains jetting towards rushes borders. passenger jets with hundreds of civilians on board. diverted because a nato re complain was to close and wouldn't respond to ground control. the actions by the u. s. air force created a threat to civilization and the fact that the catastrophe was averted over the backseat doesn't mean that the u. s. and nato can go on the risk in people's lives with impunity. the latest american war ship sailing into waters bordering russia. what issues was nature? you know, a u. s. warship has now entered the block, see where we can see it through binoculars or the crosshairs of a defense system system. a better one or multiple missile systems just across the face. it was a bit more to look at where nato's military infrastructure is located,
3:04 am
just a short distance from our borders. in romania, in poland, lansing, we saw defense systems have already been deployed and they can easily be converted into offensive missile systems that targets us. it only takes a matter of minutes to change the software. now, instinct tells me that if a russian destroy was spotted steaming into new york harbor, it would be a flaming red line for washington. but believe it or not for us all, this is a pink line at best. the real issue is nato, or rather, nato's expansion and expanded it has from this humble state in 1990 to this empire in 2020. now back in the day, russia was promised, nater would grow not one inch eastward of berlin. well, that's pullin so no, it's not an ent, it's over a 1000 kilometers. and now it's knocking at rushes door. ukraine joining
3:05 am
nato and we've been talking about it for a long time is a red line for us. the continual drawing of keys into the military orbit of the alliance, the de facto start of natives, assimilation of the military infrastructure of this country. and the desire to turn it into a foothold for confrontation with russia could all cause severe negative consequences and destabilize the military and political situation in europe. but lucky for nato, it's got a get out of jail free card because in politics, well promises are made to be broken. where is that? where is that written down? where is that from? was written down and under the similar this friend of mine will enrich kurt that you didn't call which car one aspect marriage good. in the mean time, the u. s. unfazed, by its terrible track record of predicting russian behavior is covering its bases and drawing up some economic sanctions. you know, just in case, after all, nothing screams diplomacy more than getting your threats in a row before a high stakes meeting. and all the sort of possible evasions. go. you wonder what
3:06 am
is really go on there? well, you can check out the views of scott ritter on a website. the u. s. format intel officer isn't buying any of it on our why fi heading to r t dot com? we discussed the latest diplomatic spots with michael maloof. he's a former senior security policy analyst in the office of the u. s. secretary of defense. he says this is a case of double standards. i think that out by this constant harassment in the black sea in an area half way remove well from, from the united states and going right up against the borders of the russian federation. i think it really isn't aggressive move the exercise in the black sea area was in response to the failures and the expulsion of the united states from afghanistan. so the united states has to show re assertiveness that it's still a leader in the so called free world. it lacks any recognition really,
3:07 am
spheres of influence. just like if the russians were to come into the area of gulf of mexico tomorrow, you can believe that there would be a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth in washington. the united states feels that it can do it to others, but it cannot be done to itself is part of that exceptionalism concept that the united states likes to tout around the world, in a sort of a bravado way. and it's getting tiring. brits could soon be having to pay double just to heat their households. that's according to you. k fuel poverty monitor, which side se planned increase to the energy price cap. next april the cost of living in the u. k. is at its highest level in a decade with household energy bills, the biggest driver, when the costs of essential services go up. those on lowest incomes get hit. hardest was estimated. some 4000000 british households are currently behind on their energy bills. each winter, 10000 deaths nationally caused by cold homes. the latest polish it is half the
3:08 am
country is more concerned with the cost of heating than it is with cove. it james harness and founder of a company that provides emergency heating to the elderly says the u. k government is not doing enough to help those him feel poverty. fuel, clay actually, united kingdom is very should we have because the usage is very high on the cost is very high. we've been usage people that have to pick between he think of the whole or put it on the table. in my opinion, my honest opinion, the comic and not taking any steps at all to reduce who you are or who pompey within the united kingdom in the correct manner and over in europe, the face of fuel poverty are also growing with energy prices high and winter reducing the scope of green energy governments dishing out aid to help poorer homes
3:09 am
as well as businesses. and he showed it to biskin takes a closer look. as the bitter cold hits europe, everyone is doing their best to stay warm. but as natural gas prices are 5 times higher than they were a year ago, there is a real concern that states across the block could face shortages or even potential blackouts. many including luca here in paris face a winter full of difficult decisions, says quantities owners who have already received a reminder for the charges for heating once that's increased, while at the same time we have less heating. so myself and several tenants are really worried about the choices we will have to make. people are already having difficulty, so it's not easy. we feel a little neglected. living hand to mouth is worrying a, becoming more normal in some of you rips richest nations that facilitate literally feel safe. we'll have to make choices. we will have to buy cheaper foods that are
3:10 am
less nutritional. we have problems like that. people will lose their health. tens of millions of people in europe are already living in energy poverty. and there are fears that this figure is about to see a steep rise. europe's energy crisis has been building for months now. governments across the block of try to put in place measures in an attempt to alleviate the strain on households. for example, here in france, the poorest households are to receive a one off payment of a $100.00 euros to help them shield from those price rises. italy has put in place a 3000000000 euro aid package, while the spanish government has passed emergency measures that redirects billions of euro's from profits of energy companies to consumers in a bid to lower their bills. yet, despite such measures,
3:11 am
many fear they simply will not be enough. what is the structural problem in anna? she policy shaping and policy making in many countries is who is really in charge. we have an interaction of various authorities, bodies, and on the other hand, we have seen various galler man said being very much occupied with themselves. so there is an energy in my eyes. it's still not yet having to priority it should house throughout the e. u. member states are facing the same issue over various sources of energy, including natural gas. why? well, although the pandemic saw large scale industry and even workplace is pretty much closing down when the locked downs were lifted, the demand short straight back up. and the companies just haven't been able to keep pace to add to that,
3:12 am
but you is also trying to move towards renewable energy such as wind power, yet low winds. in 2021 have meant that there's been less renewable energy being produced. these have always deemed the dates, bits, and of generates where experts have been warning against air, possibility, or even broke ability offer a stance still in the world of renewables. photovoltaic and wind fox, the one that is now in the thought of come back is nuclear. at that, i always say within 2 european union, not only that, we don't dispose of a common energy policy. we don't even dispose of something like a common energy mentality. it may say, because that is a completely different attitudes to, for instance, nuclear energy. how east and west of the rhine, the some
3:13 am
e u countries m b u. s. still opposing russia's completed nord stream to pipeline, saying it would make you far too reliant on russian gas. others that you say the link is vital so that people can heat homes at reasonable prices. such political games could end up pushing more people into fuel poverty this winter, and even cost them that lives. charity, blue sky party, paris, canadians stranded in south africa struggling to make sense of the government's rules for returning home. post on the cross. we'll hear from some of them after this break. ah ah.
3:14 am
what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy, even foundation, let it be an arms race is on offense. very dramatic development. only personally and going to resist idolatry. how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk
3:15 am
a good bigler, sir. taking some stories in brief, from around the world now starting with france when next year's election is already crating tension. ah, these are scenes that the 1st rally of right wing presidential hopeful rigs are more is known for his anti integration. apparently, anti racism activists to manage to infiltrate is event small, was making his way to the stage when a man charged that him briefly putting him him to a headlong 1000. demonstrators marched through the belgian capital, protesting against anti copied restrictions, rockville issues, or to come to disperse them. some of the protesters tell 80 buffering flares over the weekend. they were similar rallies around europe, including in austria,
3:16 am
friends and slovenia. a local ethiopian community gather to protest in the lebanese capital by route i are against us interference in ethiopia, which is being gripped by conflicts the main rebel. great fighting against the government is the tick gray people's liberation front country which is under sanctioned by america has slammed washington fractions. it says the jetta mice, the separatist group, the canadian government is being accused of believing it. citizens in south africa in the lurch, without a clear way of making it back home. confusing rules have been imposed by all to wear in the wake of the new only cron variant, allowing flights only through one particular airport in frankfurt. or correspondence in south africa policy clear explains. dozens of canadians are stranded in south africa. after the canadian government announced it would not accept the results of covetous done in this country. the uproar led to
3:17 am
a last minute change. now, if people can flight to frankfurt and only frankfort, no other germans city and you arriving canada within 48 hours of leaving south africa, you will be lit in confusing and stressful to say the least. we know you've now heard the bad news that you're not going to be able to board. the slate by a group of travelers was kicked off a flight at the last minute after they arrived at the airport. and we're waiting to board a plane out of the country. first came the announcement, the canadian citizens were only allowed to fly back to canada via ethiopia, where they would have to get out of the airport. go to a hotel, do a covert taste and wait for the results. but get this. ethiopia is on canada's no fly list because of the civil war. they say ottawa is potentially prepaid to hom, its own citizens safety, rather than having to a cobra test in this country, canadians are stranded in south africa. they're desperately trying to get assistance from this government. they're having to jump through hoops just to find
3:18 am
an affordable p c r test or a safe flight back home. it really struck me that it is citizens, really trying to help citizens, citizens of south africa and marcus citizens of canada. it's not the government trying to help citizens, and i think it really needs to be the other way round canada are saying, we trust south african scientists enough to block our own citizens from getting home and put so many different obstacles in place for them to get home, but at the same time, we don't trust their science enough to test them, so you can't be tested in south africa. and that makes absolutely no sense to me. when it goldman was in south africa with her husband, where she celebrated her father in law was 90th birthday. she was one of the lucky few to get to frankfort the way she spoke with us while in transit basic you need to have it just eating south africa. you just get on the fly for germany,
3:19 am
then you need to, you know, in transit. then when we robin toronto, we have a case we didn't have to current teen in a hotel. and so we get back negative. if it's negative, we allowed to go home that have to currency for the full team days as well as get a taste on day. and even if it's negative, we still had to quarantine for 14 days. i just don't understand why they wanted to fix that problem. me, but then implants come into this, it's actually causing chaos. in south africa, i've had a group of what we've been over like 2 weeks now to 100 people. and it was in a panic for those canadians. currently, there's a massive scramble to swap tickets by new ones and get cobra test results. no mean feat weighed in south africa's covert figures are wising and the pasting centers cannot promise they'll get the results out quickly. options are running out for those canadians stuck in the country as they try to navigate confusing travel rule . simply to get back home. policy, our teeth, johannesburg, south africa,
3:20 am
run notes, the ceo of south africa, the largest private health insurance is down. so the testing in this country are groundless. our genetic screening of samples in south africa is outstanding, the best in the world, and hence lead to this early detection on the wrong. so, you know, failure to accept kind of a testing from south africa. ready is confusing, it's a great sadness when politics interferes in science and it is a very distressing. ready situation for many people who are seeking to travel at this time of year punishing south africa this way by limiting travel and effectively imposing a lock down from external countries really does incentivize those kind of behavior from around the world. so it really is difficult to understand. failure to provide equal worldwide access to vaccines, may result in new coven strains emerging. that's the warning from the president of
3:21 am
the international federation of the red cross. he gave an exclusive interview. he was here at our to discussing not only the war on cove. it also the poland, beller is migrant crises, but with my colleague recession and there was some county 9 european union. for example. we administer that though dosa, while in africa we sta, louisa raised that tisa temper sandy moodle need engrossed with 0 percent. so the something that says moral gas set of what we are ready to rule so far, we are ready to scale up our activities in africa, by deity, the shoes about our audited, the, the vaccines to have access to the vaccines. we have to put pressure on the pharmaceutical companies. there, you will be an union, the united states, a u. k. we invested a b unsolved dollars sa, ends, researcher due to the duel to make this vaccine accessible. so why the boy discount in the developing counties that, that have not derived that to have access?
3:22 am
so i think these, it should be a common gold, not something that said belong to the, to the, from a central young company is the beginning. they believe me, i did it on them. it has been politicized to look at. they did, they did the level of the fake news or the day even political lisa had to spread around the world. so this is something that unfortunate has been pretty decisive. bukosa ye test to do with the field to people. it's up to the political leader to follow they, they advise is coming from they sankey, community to least and not to them to war. read them to avoid the total to vote at the, on the same level of diesel. so the media is an important responsibility. this and tv community and people the media and the governments are continuing to ring the alarm bells over this very end. but we're having the w h o, the chief australian medical officer and the south african medical association saying don't panic. what do you say we should follow the. the advisors coming from
3:23 am
the debris had shaw and his and d. v. community saw dwarfed. and if we're needing a lead us and the government's out substituting a there this and given community in dealing with a call in 19 and and it is needed, realty made davy, then sat in terms of our over, ah, did, did, did the reason why we have these new vari answer. so we have called it would, you may be the incidence that we'd outta i brought my vaccination without giving access to any human beings up to the vaccines de risk of no variance, sir hays age of very high aga, and we can not blame. also, these is another aspect of it for, as is at nissan of concern windata, we can not blame the south africa scientist, a tool to hook for heavy anger. i opened a door to the scientific community about these new discovery galaxy i think was i was a good idea. unfortunately, it is not working as expected. so the number of distribution out of the vaccine, so i'll go on my callback. so he is, i ism, is not sole high aga and we,
3:24 am
we expected much more ride themselves general. she from the national community and, and they had the idea that was a good idea. he was due to give the priority and then some distribution by called access to the medical doctors to the nazis that are working on the front line. and unfortunately this is working or less the 50 percent so far. so then i'm, they said very, very, very law and that is issa eyes and i did aspect of the, the national committee should take as easily in consideration. so we have to do more intensive distribution and giving access the better was red cross with this both with international federation. i think that the moment is dead winger i i good job, of course does is none not to meet tame or long term solution idea hosted in a shelf dera, but so far they are in a warm environment and then we are engaging in attic discussion. we did a man the government of mendoza to find the other solution out for them and put on
3:25 am
the unfortunately we don't have access said to the board to unfortunately am not even andy's. i said he's on a full consent from my says that i'm not super about the european union now. and there were just county ira reacting, guy in dealing with the human beings. this is, and i'm wondering if we are losing got about humanity because he's not about every county has the right to set up policies for migrations. we, i'm not questioning it's about id, the humanity on which we have to, to treat every human beings. this is the only point that we are raising that that's how i sustained it in this morning. the watching our to international the time now is coffee o'clock of that with the rates in 30 minutes. ah, well, the panoramic no. certainly no borders applied to nationalities and
3:26 am
you parish as emerge. we don't have a charity, we don't have a vaccine. the whole world leads to take action and be ready to people who judge no common crisis with we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way, but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is great. the response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together with oh, driven by dreamer shapes bankers and those with
3:27 am
