session any type of infectious size of sound that you will be able to get 60 percent of the overall population in the actually in just the 1st year is a big change in that it's just so in addition to over a 100 hospitals in moscow where you could get a job in a more traditional setting so to speak there are dozens of vaccination outposts that ads are really popular and even trendy places that mostly inside shopping malls but also in an exhibition center and even in a theater there are now 2 that scenes available the 1st one called sputnik me and then there was another one called. both developed by russian scientists the whole procedure should take around 45 minutes for his doctors need to verify you're in good health you're feeling while and then if you are qualified for the knock relation they give you a shot it out through that you should stay around for at least 45 minutes just to make sure there are no immediate adverse. reactions now vaccination started in

russia last december and according to those in charge of rolling out the japs there are over a 1000000 people who have been already vaccinated health care and essential workers were the 1st who got back to name. now they keep widening the list to include more and more people. russia's health care minister is that other countries wanted to run part vaccine distributing in other regions why now there are $2000000.00 doses of spike nick we by the end of the month. is not just trying to mount this fight scene global demand for this but the job has soared we'll look at who's ordering it later in the program. let's turn now to the u.k. where a senior minister sparked outrage by hinting that brits may have to wait longer than 3 months for their 2nd covert jumps the previously promised 12 week maximum weight was already criticised as being too long some people won't be
4:04 am
a bit concerned by saying you know you want to be able to deliver on getting that 2nd i spent weeks can you guarantee that on 5 years for example you will be able to get a 2nd more we absolutely are aiming for that we should be able to deliver it and i think we can be quite confident does the governments know something they w.h.o. f.d.a. and pfizer don't well obviously risk you're willing to concede they are gambling with the nation's health by playing fast and loose with vaccines this is dangerous 2nd shot as critical and 12 weeks already stretching it not sure what to make of this let's hope this is a rare under promising rather than a real risk. the different vaccines have been tested with different times between the 1st and 2nd doses they range from 3 weeks up to 3 months the government originally planned to stick to the shorter timeframe but now says it's ok to delay for the full 12 weeks in order to try to get a 1st dose to more people now that decision's been that with criticism widespread
4:05 am
and concern from both the public and also from within the medical profession a british doctor's campaign group of people to the health secretary at least make exception for the pfizer vaccine which recommends the shortest gap between jobs in a statement the drug's firm points out there's no data to say the 1st dose gives any protection beyond 21 days british communicable disease expert dr bottom carnitas as the 2nd job can't be held up indefinitely. the 2nd dose is crucial in boosting the immune levels so if you are so optimally immunized and then you never get that boost that immunity will eventually start to frayed and you become one rouble to infection we have to immunize as many as possible as fast as possible and i accept giving the one vaccine prevents severe illness in more people by using up the 2 doses to give to double the number of people accept that but if we then fail to boost their immunities in
4:06 am
a given time span then we may be losing the protective effect of the 1st vaccine that we gave if that is the case it's very unfortunate therefore the 2nd vaccine ought to be given within a good time frame not an indefinite time interval. in a shocking revelation doctors in the u.k. are reportedly being told to throw away the leftover coronavirus vaccine since similar incidents have been reported across the atlantic as well but to shoppers in the us worth fortunate enough to receive a curve in $1000.00 job on the spot they were offered the vaccine by an in-store pharmacist who was looking for any takers after 2 health care workers had missed their appointments and everyone is so lucky though on health specialist shared the story of a doctor who couldn't give left over doses to patients or technicians because of hospital policy by the time he had received approval the doses have been thrown away. again. i think there is
4:07 am
a lot of inertia in people rising above tight regulations sometimes regulations that are written out need to be challenged it is a shame to waste 2 axioms if you have got them spread out you should develop what you would call forward planning and have a register of people that you can call at short notice and immunize them don't waste any because this is an important and valuable medicine to protect people so you if you do forward planning and you find the people who can be on a reserve list and they can be called very quickly and they can attend as soon as possible within a couple of hours and you must do that planning to immunize are the people with the spare vaccine in america video of a woman suffering convulsions after she received a coronavirus jab has found safety fear of warning you may find some of the images coming up now disturbing brown to cry and his mother received the vaccine in the

easy on the start of january and according to a sun she hadn't experienced any health issues prior to taking the shot rhonda described his mother's condition in an exclusive interview given to r.t. . she said that the day afterwards she woke up with a headache and she's had a headache every day since until today today's the 1st day she has had a headache but she started noticing the seizure like movements in a way your left leg 1st and it was 3 days afterwards and she was admitted to the hospital by 4 days with she had no control over her legs when she was trying to walk the doctor said they think it's the metals and the vaccine. is causing her to have the neurologic or reaction. pfizer is not given the case and has said it is investigating but it's not the 1st time concerns have been raised over the safety of the job no way for example is currently investigating the deaths of dozens of elderly people who had recently received the vaccine griner again says the response
4:09 am
that he received to his video suggests that his mom's case isn't a one off i've heard of other cases since i shared a video on facebook. thousands and thousands of people message me comment an average myself personally i haven't read all the messages but i've written hundreds of them myself personally if people tell me their stories their daughters or sons their mothers or you know member members of their family have had reactions share their vaccines our plot of some of them had a lot of messages that are negative say and this is your mom or you know you're lying or whatever bigoted comments you know it's it's not really something going on trying to entertain too much i don't know why people wouldn't trust they want a code vaccine to take away kobe's days and get back to normal. he or she got into the actual coming up after the break russian opposition figure alexei nevada has

me every thursday on the alex salmond short and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm sure i'll see you then. i'll come back agin tina has received a 2nd batch of the sputnik the vaccine it comes as more countries in latin america been opting for the russian. job with details his audience down hawkins. whatever the science behind the covert vaccines other factors are at play politics being a key one it's no surprise that vaccine approval and distribution has been like
4:12 am
a parliament divided along party lines countries are mostly sticking to their own before selling all of their neighbors north america and europe have made their own pitch while competing vaccines have been subjected to increase the skepticism scrutiny and smears so it may come for some was a surprise that much of latin america is leaning towards the russian option being the latest to sign up reduced ration of sputnik vaccine in paraguay proved the increasing interest of latin american countries in a safe and effective russian vaccine against corona virus we expect the more countries in the region will also approve it soon and ready to create new partnerships to pool their foods in the fight against the pandemic paraguay joins argentina bolivia and venezuela in placing orders and cuba are in talks to start local production with mexico peru and brazil also potential customers yes sputnik
4:13 am
ves easy to transport store is also competitively priced but could there be another factor let's face it as far as neighbors go do it politically north and south america are pretty much like chalk and cheese take venezuela and bolivia pushed into pariah state status over the years or cuba really designated a state sponsor of terror it was a matter of when lot if south american nations would start looking for friendlier countries to hang out with the 1st thing we have to look a here is the blockade against the malaccan american country in a case of benefit or york and a very limited i can we back in economically in the u.k. based on the american made back in their out of read you can be levied by working in that country. we can think of the the russian companies via less exposure to us punitive measures. in them from us. and increasing the possibility to
4:14 am
trade in with partners like venezuela countries traditionally closer to the united states such as mexico or costa rica have already opted for western designed vaccines brazil is there on the fence while plans to launch production of sputnik 3 are in place regulatory approval as been delayed though moscow says it's just a temporary issue in connection with unreliable information that appeared in a number of media outlets about the refusal of an emergency registration for the sport make the vaccine in brazil we clarify that the national health surveillance agency has requested additional information regarding the sputnik the vaccine which will be provided shortly russia plans to expand sputnik corporation in the region for many countries on the continent it seems like the best choice practically and financially and whatever the global politics at play in the upper echelons of power
4:15 am
latin american nations agree and a pandemic like none of us have ever witnessed is protecting their people which comes 1st naturally these issues are being played by many sectors personally involved with washington who are politicized their distribution of a fighter back into that country to pressure here in latin america but this is of course counterproductive to the interests of the people who are essentially looking to get the cheap vaccine quick if. they've got their health and improve the health care system of the country through it i think if the thumb extended it was inevitable that the distribution of iraqi was going to be politicized by that but i get this in order the detriment of the people living here in the continent. with the trump of ministration leaving the white house you might think that there be a brand new team of faces poised to come and replace them but in fact many of joe biden's key cabinet picks hark back to the days of his old boss and especially when it comes to the u.s. state department auntie's run against dave explains. out with the old and then
4:16 am
with the well even older it seems there had been flick through do biden state department nominations you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd slipped into a parallel above the presidency there back well almost all of back from the people who brought you look at cash if in libya the bungled war in syria got stuck into the coup in ukraine and brought relations with russia to what they are now or as the chief in waiting puts it this team behind me they embody my core beliefs that america's strongest when it works with the sellers it's a team that reflects the fact that america is back judging by the team's track record now is a good time for innocent civilians and potential collateral casualties around the world to start quaking in their boots because this cabal of liberal bruises seems
4:17 am
to have much less compunction about dropping bombs than trump ever did such as mr blinken who believes that the us failed in syria because it didn't destroy it enough in syria we made the opposite error of doing too little without bringing appropriate power to bear no peace could be negotiated much less imposed or how about victoria nuland was her tool it's prefer jets and armies and bombs to take out anything that doesn't fit their picture perfect idea of democracy newlands more wily she gives in with with cookies and smiles and gets you to trust says you'll have friend and then says this behind your back. that would be great i think to help glue this thing and to have do you when health glue it and you know you america is strongest when it works with its allies biden said. nuland does that
4:18 am
make sure that america doesn't become too strong and keep those allies guessing about who she's trash talking this stuff or take samantha power now slated to take over america's aid agency machine she's good at anything it's making sure that the u.s. doesn't work with other countries to get things done to the assad regime russia and iran 3 member states behind the conquest of and carnage in aleppo you bear responsibility for these atrocities these are the people who helped bring trump to power they are they are part of what voters grew disenchanted with the and lost wool is the endless deaths the endless failures but then again they don't expect too much from a biden state department in the words of a famous defense secretary if it's foreign policy chances are biden will get it
4:19 am
wrong. i think he's been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past 4 decades looks like it's going to be a continuation of a increasingly aggressive us foreign policy that makes sense because that has been the the trajectory that republican and democrat administrations have done over the past several decades and his most recent picks seem to be a continuation of that this is an ongoing thing and that coupled with his his defense department picks a 3rd of whom have major ties to the defense industry all signals are that we are about to see some serious neocon foreign policy problem is that you have this inertia within us foreign policy and there's 2 parts to the inertia one is just the fact that all of the think tanks all of the contractors everyone that is part of the military industrial complex is supporting and promoting these types of these
4:20 am
types of aggressive war hawks to the state department and the department of defense but there's also something more sinister at play here is the fact that there's an underlying jingoism that is built into us foreign policy and has been for several decades in this jingoism tells us that the u.s. government the u.s. military can go wherever it wants whenever it wants and kill whomever they wish including civilian casualties and that there can be no negative blowback or consequences for if anyone so much as tries to defend themselves there are mediately a terrorist and when that is the over the underlying thought process and bedrock founding principle of u.s. military and foreign policy it's going to lead to this type of aggressive posture around the world and it has to end. kremlin critic a lexan of on this but russian soil and was immediately arrested by police on a rival for violating his probation the volley of been in germany receiving medical
4:21 am
treatment following an incident last summer and when she fell seriously ill during a flight washington was quick to react as a rest with russia's foreign ministry asking the u.s. to focus on internal issues. in response to mr sullivan as well as many other foreign figures who publish pre-prepared comments respect international law do not encroach on the national legislation of sovereign states and you would have problems in your own country the kremlin's attacks on mr novell me are not just a violation of human rights but an affront to the russian people he wants their voices heard and more on the story his outing saskia toda. but here i am a pause just to the southwest of mosco and around 7 30 pm local time russian opposition forgot it was a queue to land on that flight from by lynn however at the last minute we got word that all incoming flights were being diverted to other at ports and a phony flight was sent to shut him up to us the other side of the capital now we
4:22 am
know he has been detained why well at the end of december he served out a suspended sentence on charges of embezzlement not that related to the so called eve for a shut case that goes back to 2014 not the tums of that's a suspended sentence to mont it that to he regularly report to an office but russia's presence serves to say that he failed to do so on at least 6 occasions over the past here that was before he fell sick on that plane from siberia to moscow and they said they gave him fat warning about the potential consequences of consistent evaluating his probation now this is not the only a legal challenge ahead for need the kremlin critic is also facing fresh allegations of fraud investigators say the key misappropriated a waste of $5000000.00 worth of donations that were given in good faith to his non profit organization and that could see
4:23 am
a penalty of up to 10 years behind bars blessed us remind ourselves of what's led up to this moment and wine of our knees or a ton to russia has gone to so much attention. or you wouldn't believe you used to. now just on that last point about requests from german authorities on saturday it became clear that berlin had said something to moscow but must go said that the
4:24 am
material that was sent was a latino and substance that really it couldn't be considered anything useful or worthy of anything of cooperation nevertheless we've seen the e.u. sanctions senior russian officials over the novell nice saga which looks like it might still be continuing and has been taken into custody and it looks like at around that on the 29th of january a decision on his future will be made in court. paris is urging washington and tehran to return to the iran nuclear deal fronts along with britain and germany alleges around is in violation by building up its nuclear weapons capacity something that iran's foreign minister has rejected the 2015 do it was signed by 7 states and was supposed to limit iran's nuclear capability in exchange for sanctions relief 28 the u.s. withdrew prompting tehran to suspend some of its commitments since acquired more

than 12 times the amount of enriched uranium permitted by the deal. he's going underground latest guess this former iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad who insisted his country is a peaceful one you can watch the full program on our channel later today or turns really had to a website and see it at r.t. dot com. a lot of the culture of the iranian nation has never throughout history been after conflict. war or threatening others basically the error of using the language of threat in national and international relations with ash the point is over how will buy. make any difference to iran u.s. relations he's of course a very good friend of israel from our standpoint it makes no difference who is president in the u.s. since major u.s. policies are devised by the governing board behind the scenes look at the past 70 years many crimes against humanity have been committed and
4:26 am
a lot of wars and impositions have been waged by consecutive u.s. administrations i don't expect that not to reoccur in the future what did that make you feel when you saw the pictures of the attempted insurrection in washington those are the internal affairs of the u.s. they're almost irrelevant to international policy it's bad luck to say when there was demonstrations on the streets of tehran yes in their foreign policy they meddle in all the affairs of countries today the world is being managed according to the principles of political darwinism what that means is that for some to be strong others would have to be weak this ideology is anti-human and has turned the world into a place where an arms race has jeopardized everyone security i'm opposed to this world management model and believe that all nations and human beings can live in friendship peace in the brotherhood. on the like many
