6:03 am
a little bit later when they're under moody and vladimir putin assign of when they speak mil and make their joint statements. so meanwhile, in the recent days of letting me put in, spoke about the importance of development of relationship between russia and the india. and his stress that india at the moment is one of the most authoritative centers of the multi polar world. now, speaking about the trade between 2 countries, in the recent year that trade had been increased to $8800000000.00 us dollars. and also there's of course, our cooperation between the countries in a nuclear energy and it stays had a fall, want to rush us oil giant barrel. snap is also a part of the russian delegation in a new deli, out earlier a russian foreign defense ministers met with their counterpart center. they discussed key regional issues including their situation in this,
6:04 am
in central asia and asia pacific region as well. now, mind you, this summit between russia and india is taking place ahead of lighting, marapoo, and online was his the u. s. counterparts. a joe boyd and the court is taking place in the face of attentions escalation of tensions regarding the situation in ukraine. ah, now a russian foreign minister said that's a russia and the india will stand together in the face of attempts to substitute dialog bus by some other formats. let's have a listen to what's their gallon rope had said they're there. we lose it. we've expressed our serious concerns to our indian friends about the activities the united states is engaged in here under the banner of the so called indo pacific strategies or crating closed block structures here. so though this course,
6:05 am
a very important part of the visit, is that by a russian defense minister, a sergey showing go as the country is about to assign certain a defense deal. say, he said earlier that cooperation between russia and india has reached a new level. and is developing every year now a certain contracts and protocols regarding 2 defense deals that have been signed and i'm sure we'll find out more about those one. vladimir putin in there and ramadi, make their joint statements after their meeting. i'll teach romano, correct? thank you. not moscow has rip off claims that is poised to invade ukraine, saying they bad, no relation to reality and adding that it's the american. so acting belligerently in the region. that's as western media and politicians are wretched up speculation about a possible wall. now, according to some reports,
6:06 am
european intel agencies gave that version of events, little credibility, until washington stepped in. many allies were not convinced that serious things were happening. we were surprised about this intelligence gap. how and why the u. s . was seeing things that we were not seeing if i have to compare san bites from before this info. and then at the nato meeting in riga, there was a big shift towards the u. s. version of things. while they are new wave of tensions comes as the u. s. on russian president prepared a talker by phone on tuesday. but joe biden, however, looks in no mood to negotiate. oh, of course the diplomacy is out and red lines are there 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
6:07 am
training exercises. and again, when military drills were conducted in crimea, and only recently moscow was supposedly the mastermind of a 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 kremlin 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 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, u. s. spy paint jetting towards rushes,
6:08 am
borders. passenger jets with hundreds of civilians on board. diverted because the 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 black sea. we can see it through binoculars or the crosshairs of defense systems used him a better one or multiple missile systems just across the fan. it was a bit more to look at where nato's military infrastructure is located, just a short distance from our borders in romania and poland. lansing massage 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
6:09 am
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, nato would grow, not one inch eastward of berlin. wel, that's berlin. so no, it's not an ent, it's over a 1000 kilometers. and now it's knocking out rushes door. ukraine joining 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 or bit 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,
6:10 am
it's got a gas 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 validity friend among the rich curtain that you didn't call erica, want us documentary to do it. in the meantime, the u. s. unfazed by its terrible track record l predicting russian behavior is covering its bases and drawing up some economic frank sets, you know, just in case after all, nothing screams diplomacy more than getting your threats in a row before high stakes meeting. and if all of us talk of invasion has got, you're wondering what's really going on? why don't we check out the views of scott river on our website is an x u. s. intel offer, so he's not buying what various tabloids are selling right now. you can read wyatt aussie dot com. before we did discuss the latest diplomatic spat with michael maloof, a former pentagon analyst, he says a, it's
6:11 am
a case of double standards. i think that by this constant harassment in the black sea, in an area half way remove from from the united states and going right up against the borders of the russian federation, i think 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 to 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, 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 sliced to tout around the world, in a sort of
6:12 am
a bravado way. and it's getting tiring. as it turns out, brits could soon have to pay double to heat their homes. that's according to a u. k. fuel poverty monitor, citing a plan to increase to the energy price cap. that'll be next april. the cost of living in the u. k. is that its highest level in a decade with household energy bills, the biggest driver, when the costs of essential services go up, those on the lower thing can get hit hardest. it is estimated that some 4000000 in british households are currently behind on the energy bills. each went to 10000 deaths nationally caused by cold homes. and the latest paulding suggest, half the country is more worried about the cost of heating than anything to do with cove it. well james, i understand the founder of a company that provides emergency heating to the elderly. so if you k, government is not doing enough to help those and fuel poverty, the fuel clay, surely united kingdom is better because the usage is very high.
6:13 am
the cost is very high width usage. people that have to pick between he think of the whole all put on the table. in my opinion, my honest opinion, the government are not taking any steps at all to reduce you or who publicly within the united kingdom in the correct mama. well over in europe, fears or feel profit here also growing with energy prices high and winter reducing the scope of green energy. a government dishing out a to help port homes as well as businesses aussies. charlotte do basically take a closer look has the bitter cold hitch 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
6:14 am
a winter full of difficult decisions. ciscano dish. oh no. yeah. and we 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. people living hand to mouth is worrying a, becoming more normal in some of you rips richest nations at the facility. literally feel safe. we'll have to make choices. we will have to buy cheaper foods that are less nutritional. we have problems like that. people will lose their health. one, 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
6:15 am
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 redirect billions of years from profit of energy companies to consumers in a bid to lower their bills. yet, despite such measures, men here, they simply will not be enough. what is the structural problem in an achieve policies 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,
6:16 am
we have seen various governments 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, so 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, 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 been the dates, bits, and of generate where experts have been warning against a possibility or even broke ability of
6:17 am
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. and the, i always say within 2 european union, not only that, we don't dispose of a common attitude 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, l, east and west of to run some you countries, i'm the u. s. a still opposing rushes. please note stream to pulling blind saying it would make europe fall to rely until russian gas others that you say the link is vital so that people can hear homes that reasonable prices. such political games could end up pushing more people into fuel pump. would see this winter and even
6:18 am
cost them that lives geology, blue sky, or t. harris. i left bring you some news we're getting in just now here at archie, internationally. moscow, russia is now reporting its 1st cases of the new covey variant. alma crohn was detected in 2 out of 10 people who had just returned from south africa. now the new mutation, which was our 1st attacker down south africa, has been spreading around the globe. it. so now registered in 40 countries of new strain is set to be more contagious than previous ones, although right now that it's not thought to be any more deadly scientist i while working to adapt existing vaccines to fight the new strain or failure to provide equal world wide access to vaccines may result in new cobra strains emerging as to warning for the president of the international federation of the red cross who gave an exclusive interview to r t. discussing with me not just the war on cove it but also the poland bella roost
6:19 am
migrant crisis and there was some counting in 9. you look in union, for example, we are many saying that though dosa, while in africa we sta, louisa raised that tisa temper, sandy, blonde in coastal 0 percent salt. something that says morgan said that what we are ready to rule so far, we are ready to scale up our activities in africa, by deity, the shoes about validated the vaccines to have access to the vaccines. we have to put pressure on the pharmaceutical companies. are there you will be an union, the united states, a u. k. we invested the b unsolved dollars in the researcher due to the dual to make this vaccine accessible. so why the boy discount ended up being county is that they have not derived that to have access. so i think these, it should be a common road, not something that said belong to the, to the, from a central young company is the beginning there. believe me, i did it and they make us be politicized to look at they, they did,
6:20 am
they did the level of the fake news their day even political lisa had to spread. busy around the world. so this is something that unfortunate has been 40, this iser bukasa you test to do with the field to people. it's up to the political leader to follow they, they advise is coming from their scientific community to least and not to them, to walk with them, to avoid, to do, to vote at the, on the same level and is also the media is an important responsibility. this and tv community and people the media and the government are continuing to ring the alarm bells over this very end. but we're having the w h show, 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 the idiot? average shaw and his scientific community so dwarfed and a political lead us and the government's out of state dutengo their descent given community in dealing with a call in 19. and this is dated yield to me,
6:21 am
david and sat in terms of our over, ah, did, did, did the reason why we have these new vari answer. so we have cold, it would you, may davy, to insulate? so without a, i brought my vaccination without giving access to any human being gsa to the vaccines de risk of a new body answer phase age of 80. hi aga, and we can not blame also, these is another aspect of it, for as is, it is of concern. windata. we can not blame the south africa scientists, a tool to ha, for a heavy anger. i opened a door to the scientific community about these new discovery galaxy i think was i was a good idea. unfortunately, he is not working as expected. so the number of distribution out of the vaccine swell go home, michael, that so he is, i ism, is not so high aga, and we, we expected much more ride themself. general she from the international community. and, and they had the idea that was
6:22 am
a good idea. he was due to give the priority and then some distribution by callback . so for the medical doctors to the nurses that are working on the frontline, unfortunately this is workinger less than 50 percent so far. so then i'm, they said very, very, very law and, and this is her eyes and i did aspect of the international committee should take as easily in consideration. so we have to do more in terms of distribution and giving access the better was with cross with this both with international federation. i think that the moment is they're doing a i good job. of course, disease now not to meet tame or long term solution that area hosted in a sheltered area, but so far they are in a warmer environmental and, and we are engaging in attic discussion. we day made a man the government of mendosa tool to find either solution, none of them and put on the unfortunately we don't have access said to the board to unfortunately am not even nineties. i said he's on a full consent for my says that i'm not surprised about you. okay. and you and
6:23 am
you're not. and there was just county ira reacting, guy in dealing with the human beings, these his eyes. and i'm wondering if we are losing our humanity because he's not about every county has the right to set up policies for migrations. we are not questioning. if some out i added the humanity on which we have to, to treat every human beings. this is the only point that we are racing that is as arte international, that curia canadian government is now being accused of leaving its citizens in south africa in the lurch without a clear way of getting back home. a confusing rules have been imposed by ottawa in the wake of the new auburn con variant, allowing flights only through one particular airport in frankfurt. so i corresponded in south africa. paula sla explains. dozens of canadians are stranded in south africa. after the canadian government announced it would not accept the results of covert tests done in this country. the uproar led to a last minute change. now, if you book a flight to frankfurt and only frankfort,
6:24 am
no other germans city and you arriving canada within 48 hours of leaving south africa, you'll be lit in confusing and stressful to say the least. we know you've now heard the bad news, but you're not going to be able to board the flight. my. 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. ottaway is potentially prepaid to hom, its own citizens safety. rather than having to a co taste 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 an affordable p c r test or
6:25 am
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. but 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 a 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 some way she spoke with us while in transit basic you need to have it to even start africa. you just get on the flight to germany, then you need to, you know, in transit. they will be robbing toronto, we have
6:26 am
a case, we then have to current teen in a hotel. and so we get back negative. if it's negative, we allow 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 have to quarantine for 14 days. i just don't understand why they want to fix that problem. me, but then in coming to us, it's actually causing chaos. in south africa, i've had a group watch and 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 when 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 wool simply to get back home. pointlessly on our t, johannesburg, south africa. we spoke with ryan nodes are the ceo of south africa,
6:27 am
the largest private health insurer. he says, doubts over cove and testing in south africa a groundless our genetic screening. all samples in south africa is outstanding, the based 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 is confusing. it's a great sadness when politics interferes in science. and some of these are very distressing situation. for many people who are seeking to travel at this time of year punishing south africa. this way, by limiting travel and effectively posing a lock down from external countries, really dis, incentivized those kind of behavior from around the world. so it really is difficult to understand. before we go, let's give you a recap of our top story here. we're not to international. vladimir putin will be touching down in the indian capital, new delhi,
6:28 am
any moment now he's there for talks with prime minister, never inter modi on a wide range of security topics in the endo pacific. russia is a foreign and defense ministers also arrived in india just a day earlier. they've already had talked with our counterparts as well. it is interesting, the 3 biggest guys from russia all landing in the same 24 hours in the same place. our coverage continues here on out international i know the hop off to in the afternoon on monday here any stories you may have missed just check out our website . r t dot com. ah,
6:29 am
ah. well, it shows the wrong one. i just don't want to say proud because the advocate an engagement. it was the trail. when so many find themselves well, the part we choose to look for common ground. ah,
6:30 am
ah. hello and welcome to cross stock. were all things are considered? i'm peter labelle, focus on ukraine. joe biden says, i don't accept any one's red line, rushes foreign ministers out again. marlborough says the nightmare scenario of military confrontation is returning on this edition of the program. we examined the significance of both statements. ah, to discuss these issues and more and joined by my guess, george samuel, we in budapest, he is a podcast or at the goggle which can be found on youtube and locals. and in our slow, we have gland deason. he is a professor at the university of southeastern norway as well as other of the book, great power politics in the 4th industrial revolution or a gentleman cross huck rules and effect. that means you can jump in any time you
6:31 am
want and i would appreciate it. again, scott glenn, 1st the in our slow i,
