fury at president back for failing to deliver on his promise to speed up vaccinations while frontline medics tackle yet another surgeon cope with patients. mr we believe the government is to blame for the fact that we have to work incredibly slowly but at the same time in a completely gruelling regime. broadcasting live from moscow to the world this is our chief international quarter here with you in the studio welcome to the program. now we start with the story from washington d.c. where one police officer is dead and another in the hospital after a car ramming outside the u.s. capitol building the suspect was shot and killed after stepping out of his vehicle and brandishing a knife now reporting from outside capitol hill here's r t america's foreign from zech. last week we had the fencing around the capitol
10:02 pm
taken down and then this incident happened we just had a press conference where all of this information was released but the incident happened around one or 2 pm suspect was then shot around $115.00 and then the national guardsmen were actually deployed to come back out into the streets of washington d.c. moments after that all happened so i want to take you a look at a look at the scene behind me here where you're seeing all of those police vehicles right into that area is a driveway where many senators you'll see the building on the left that's the senate building many of these senators walking back and forth to and from that building just across where you see those police officers on the right there is a driveway there where again many of these senators their cars or workers into the work at the capitol drive in what happened was it 102 pm the suspect drove his car through that driveway hitting 2 police officers and then smashed into
10:03 pm
a barricade much like the barricades that you're seeing that we're seeing right here in front of these national troops however this suspect coming down the street those barricades were not up at the time now since this incident they have been put barricades have now been arrested with the 2 officers that were hit they were immediately taken into separate ambulances to the hospital again as you mentioned one of them succumbing to his injuries we just had a capitol police officer die back on january 6th during the insurrection here at the capitol so the d.c. is very much been on high alert since then which is why they brought out that fencing this officer is now the 5th capitol police officer in its 200 year history to die in the line of duty again we had that officer brian sic nick di back on january 6th during the insurrection as far as the mood of what's happening here you can see very much you know looks very very high stakes behind the barricades there but actually if you take a look completely across the capitol you can see everyone very normal people on
10:04 pm
their scoot. people walking around taking pictures of the building up with the suspect being dead and with an officer being dead there is still no motive given we don't know the motive yet however the capitol hill police have said in their press conference that this was not they do not consider this an act of terrorism the officer who died in the attack has been identified as william evans a capitol policeman of 18 years and president biden has sent quote heartfelt condolences to the officers family former pentagon analyst michael maloof thinks that the latest incident will result in an even larger security presence in washington d.c. well into the future the initial concern was this could have been a decoys and immediately the rest of the capitol went under further lockdown and also has they've also done the same thing for government buildings just in case this might have been a decoys but so far nothing else has happened it could have been just a test if people who have intentions of getting the capital will look upon this as
10:05 pm
a lesson learned what to do or what not to do and how to go about this but i think that this latest episode just reinforces especially if it was done by a lone a lone wolf that the they're going to have to maintain their their security presence and actually beef up security because of the sensitivities of what's going on in the in the capitol area especially on capitol hill and the vulnerability of congressmen and senators they're going to maintain security for an indefinite period of time. somebody says it's ready to take matters into its own hands when it comes to ordering vaccines if the european union doesn't get its act together the country's health minister also stressed that berlin needs to stock up on shots for the next year as well. what is important is the question of 2022 we have to secure our capacities for a possible 3rd or 4th round of vaccinations we currently don't know how long
10:06 pm
vaccination protection law must hence we must secure these capacities as part of the european union or failing that as a nation the vaccine rollout has been plagued with problems with several states now looking to break away from the joint purchase scheme they include slovakia and hungry while austria just entered talks to buy a 1000000 doses of the russian shot despite its lack of approval from the blocks drug watchdog the world health organization has also expressed its concerns calling the e.u.'s efforts on acceptably slow according to the organization only 4 percent of europeans have been given 2 doses of the vaccine so far earlier my colleague neil harvey discussed that astra zeneca troubles and the prospects of the russian vaccine in the block with the executive director of the w h o's regional office for europe. we're both alarms and frustrated at that moment we're alarmed because we're rapidly approaching 1000000 deaths in the european
10:07 pm
region without 44000000 cases of covert 19 on the other hand we're frustrated because we are up for straight if for the reasons that many of us have been living in lockdown france and fancy 140 days in some cases but also prostrates it's because we don't see these vaccines reaching arms fast enough but this really is a core to documents to improve their backs nation plans ramp up speed up that vaccination process we need people to accept and have confidence in the vaccines they're receiving and when they're offered a vaccine to agree to take it the longer we wait the higher the likelihood that the that the virus mutates and that will see variants escape the vaccine you mentioned a really important point there i think particularly pertinent right now because the w.h.o. talking about the after seneca vaccine a sad condition came easy and of course there's that there's a great need for it and a great demand for it but there are several countries i think more than
10:08 pm
a dozen countries appear full of using it what is the stands now on astra zeneca vaccine just in confidence to such a fragile thing i mean it takes you in some cases years to build in just a few minutes to erode and diminish so it will undoubtedly and has undoubtedly impact its confidence of the communities that are relying on that vaccine. at the astra zeneca backseats this is very important that we get this vaccine back online where it's been temporarily suspended but at this point there's no course the association until we have more data we won't know just getting back to the vaccinations there's a range of them out there now russia has a fear of its own thing the 1st one out there are those put on the market with sputnik v some countries and the west the big. slow to approve use of it is not legitimate is it just because the medical checks haven't been done yet or is it could there be
10:09 pm
a political element to it i don't think politics is something that we should necessarily just just in terms of the vaccines and when different vaccines used sputnik the vaccine from what we've seen from the russian federation's the dates of this kind of oh here's to be an effective and safe nazi is used in many member states and in some of the states that do not have access to the vaccines that are listed for it's really the russian vaccine that has come to that aid and supports so sputnik very being used to many member states it does not counts european medicines association approval hence it doesn't have e.u. member states using it at this point but we are confident that in the very near future not vaccine will be of use to everybody across the globe that message from the w.h.o. is something president emanuel macron may want to bear in mind because french doctors have been venting their frustration at his failure to deliver on his
10:10 pm
promise to speed up vaccinations as friends and as friends and here's its 3rd lockdown they warn that the lack of available doses is now critical with ever more seriously ill coded patients being admitted to already overwhelmed hospitals the leaders now but the nation's leader insists the rollout is moving at full speed. when we talked to him when we were putting all means to vaccinate vaccinate vaccinate without a response without holidays saturdays and sundays just like week days. the general practitioners like myself are not currently receiving vaccines for 2 weeks now we've not had any vaccines available for injection we've been working for 9 months without stop and without vacation 7 days a week as mr macro says due to the inability to complete the work on time due to a lack of vaccines we believe the government is to blame for the fact that we have to work incredibly slowly but at the same time in
10:11 pm
a completely grueling regime simply because of a lack of equipment the new wave of kovi it will lead to overcrowding in hospitals we already know this will happen we are already deciding which patients get treatment and which don't because about 60 percent of operations were cancelled. on wednesday macron promised to increase the number of intensive care beds to more than 10000 but doctors say it will come at the expense of non covert patients another problem is lack of staff as intensive care requires intent additional special training and equipment for travel a grand again says those challenges could have been avoided if paris had acted earlier. imagine. emmanuel mccrone has woken up a year after the start of the crisis the year ago in march the need for a large number of hospital beds and beds in intensive care took us by surprise but after a year the number of beds has not increased there is however a positive point unlike last year we do not need
10:12 pm
a large number of ventilators not because they were produced but because they are now used at a much later stage of the disease now it's enough to simply provide patients within homes to oxygen therapy the problem however is that the appropriate technology has not been installed on hospitals as a result therapy side still limited responsibility for this rests entirely with the manual macro who endlessly delayed the adoption of measures even preventative measures such as supplying hospitals with oxygen cylinders an oxygen therapy device is necessary for treating patients. thousands of anonymous reports by students of sexual harassment and u.k. schools have put a spotlight on the issue around $100.00 students have been named in the testimonies including private institutions or than $11000.00 accounts of abuse were posted on the everyone's invited website which is aimed at exposing so called rape culture in
10:13 pm
the u.k. that figure has more than doubled in the past 2 days and the majority of testimonies detailed the alleged harassment of girls include posts from children as young as 9 years old. meanwhile a recent survey by charity plan international u.k. showed 58 percent of girls aged 14 and over claimed they had been publicly harassed at school it's found girls experienced unwanted sexual comments as well as being grabbed the u.k. government has launched an emergency review and a hotline for victims of sexual abuse in schools the education minister has said he's committed to ensuring victims feel supported but katie russell from rape crisis angle in the end wales says this is not a new issue these statistics aren't particularly surprising to us we know that sexual violence and abuse and sexist bullying and sexual harassment are far more widespread in the general population than many people appreciate but also there was
10:14 pm
a women inequality select committee report into precisely this issue sexist bullying sexual harassment and sexual violence in schools just a few years ago and made a series of recommendations which the government has largely ignored and failed to act upon so this is not a new phenomenon and really the question is why more hasn't been done by government to tackle this situation sooner any action of course is welcome but these feel very much like sort of kneejerk responses to a situation that as a say you know there's not been known about. us is using every tool at its disposal to continue to counter the ever growing call not global influence of china and with that goal in mind washington's reaching out to its allies across to asia with mixed success here's the take of our own simon right. the rise of china and subsequent tantrum in the west is heading the way these
10:15 pm
things always do the great powers and some not so great ones are getting together and holding hands and forming alliances so anything really bad happens we can all suffer together in the blue corner we have record for the 1st try we're convening this group. yet that meeting was a few weeks ago a meeting of the quadrilateral security dialogue or quote for short because no one can remember the real name who comes out with those names anyway it's made up of the united states india japan and australia some might suggest a more clues than quads the aim of the gang is a free and open indo-pacific that was the promise after the 1st summit between the leaders of the us india japan and australia so they're really mean are the words is to keep china in its place brilliantly without ever using the word china i show you want me you will take a look at their p.r. video often in a few words as we go. to be china free and open and
10:16 pm
close it and help the unless you china. to be china i think straight course power china committing to addressing the world's defining challenge the rise of china moment of crisis something. to be china. and china. that the threat of climate change and combat the threat of china our savior the pain of watching you basically goes on like that some of the quad the asian nato we say officially denied because it is not a minute to your lines for the 1st time canada is participating in a joint exercise in the pacific ocean with the nations to rise the. sea definitely not a military alliance as ever though self-interest is likely to be the main enemy of this group they 1st got together back in 2004 to respond to the booking day tsunami when they tried to go steady off towards. make it all a bit more push you realize it wasn't going to work because none of them really
10:17 pm
wanted to annoy china. now almost 15 years after they gave up on the court in the 1st place they're back and they realize they do want to know each other now because the u.s. is scared of being used as the global bully indios just have a border clash with china. and australia is facing economic sanctions from beijing so yeah return of the cord we know that our allies have complex relationships with china that won't always align perfectly and to a key u.s. ally south korea which is doing all it can to stay out of the cord after realizing that while it is only us 3 security it does most of its shopping in china australia doesn't seem to have noticed it in the same position as those sanctions from beijing china has called the quad an excuse to form clique's and openly incite discord between regional countries with that in mind is building its own clique to incite discord your reaction to china making a big push into the mid east with
10:18 pm
a new 25 year deal with china and iran. is really struggling to see the oars cues and she so yes china and iran have signed a 25 year cooperation deal among other things beijing will be buying it rain or you in defiance of u.s. sanctions i mean just like the quote never says the c word china and iran didn't exactly say of the signing but this is one big middle finger aimed squarely at washington the big geopolitical beast then are picking their teams and taking sides . to worry about i'm sure. russian opposition activist alex has gone on a hunger strike he's claiming that he's being mistreated in prison demanding the right to choose his own doctor and he's also made various allegations of mistreatment that have been rapidly picked up by the western media of all he was jailed around a month ago for breaking parole terms for an earlier embezzle meant conviction and now his case is being reviewed by russia's human rights committee which is
10:19 pm
conducting a tour of the country's prison system and r.t.e. got to join them to see firsthand the facility where aleksey involved he's being held. you can tell a lot about how civilized a society is by entering its present russian prisons shrouded in dark mystery a beloved topic for the merchants of doom but lately the gaze of the international media and rights activists has been glued to one penal colony holding alexina valley in one of the toughest penal colonies it's a place that's very isolated are very strict information flows it's a demoralizing and very difficult place to spend a lot of time this particular in a flat in the region is one of russia's most of the 2 of our colleagues set off to check up on these alarming reports of abuse not as journalists though but as members of russia's human rights watchdog our crew strong along not only called this a concentration camp here is what we were shown the facility has a library
10:20 pm
a medical unit 3 floors of conjugal visit rooms the daily routine is hardly spa like of course the administration has the facility in an iron grip that this is not a resort it's a correctional facility and of course things you're allowed to do on the outside on to allowed in here it feels like groundhog day get up do your exercises make the bed tidy up breakfast morning inspection then lunch get some free time evening inspection and more tidying up dinner lectures lights out now we couldn't independently verify these exact claims but what we were shown corroborated the account so this is what a typical barrack here looks like but apart from well expected bunk beds there's also a table for ping pong the administration has assured us it hasn't been brought here just for show well being able to play table tennis in the penitentiaries is great and all of that but alexina valley hasn't been complaining about the lack of exercise he's accused the administration of denying him medical care privately
10:21 pm
though inmates from the same unit as novelli say that they heard a very different account from him. as i can tell he's regularly taken to the medical unit on top of that a doctor from a regional institution has seen him he said he was taken for an m.r.i. but said that he had not yet received any diagnosis not switch from a bottle at personally examined him and his condition was satisfactory he did all the tests gave blood and urine samples had a full examination on the 24th of march he was taken for examination at the regional hospital in the city of atlanta and you're all just described treatment for him which he has refused and is still refusing to this day. maria buton now an expert for russia's commissioner for human rights has seen the inside of an american prison so she can put the conditions here in context she visited in a valley and here's how it went christmas shows through the goods here if that was really the roots of the pressure to the. us live we knew but i took the position i
10:22 pm
knew that out of those of us this interested in me as national it on the pleasure to know when you're guilty of it which is what all the little boys say to music when job was a question because they were both mother it's almost a police record although they are supposed to the governing is a part of your story delisting well the areas that are hospital tonight is a new place we're only a vision you get a system that is of us we get out of our ship with choices it's just what's in the struggle it's the province's the ignorance the love the society to teach them a purpose and there will definitely be traced everything changed in business what that up what they would give this woman the petition with research as i do with which i think my own interest you laid out what is going to go on a petition really don't suit him this doing it's a. child measure how cried out especially with other leaders like with the new hampshirites and you would you gotta move not a coalition of the only plan was to. opt out of the us and this was negotiable do this with the senate in your heart let's assume about the way to do did not know why there was and he didn't which united nations is and when you skillfully price
10:23 pm
it out of the van with. the with the to do with that part of the course of yes modest that would be quite a lot of the most of what we really should call the business. it is a residence out to. live with each of those who are the new things and you're going in those particular something in life yes this is good i insincerely here of my own free will as i've received requests from russia's civic chamber and i said to him aleksey you yourself complain that something is wrong with you here well here i am if you compare this place to an american prison for example in terms of the number of people staying in one of those dorms then whereas here you see about 50 people together over there it's $3.00 to $4.00 times more overcrowded and here you can see that everyone has space there's a shared kitchen there are special rooms for a long family visits which do not exist at all in america which there are no such visits he looks down on everyone you know as someone who's been to prison i would advise him not to behave in this way the ministry and ends up being punished for
10:24 pm
his behavior say his own cleanliness he will be the one to blame the vollies behavior has been mirrored and amplified by his followers as other members of russia's rights watchdog showed us threats they got since the kremlin critic was incarcerated yet medical care is just the tip of the vollies iceberg of complaints sleep deprivation another charge against the colonies administration guards waking him up 8 times a night beaming a flashlight in his face talking loudly in his ear jury night time roll call but according to an inmate sharing the block with the volume he must be a featherweight of a sleeper no one else is bothered by the rounds most potent and missed my bet is practically next to his during the nights i don't wake up from their rounds it's never happened to me if i'm not mistaken he was in a plugs when he sleeps it doesn't bother me even without it plugs. to hear it from someone in the valley shoes we talked to an inmate from a different calling subjected to the very same rules who in jews the same procedure
10:25 pm
as every night starting from 10 pm they do their rounds every 2 hours on the 1st day i kept waking up but now it's all good so no one sticks intuition your face or anything like that no not really it is unlikely one public visit will put to rest claims about in a valise treatment from his backers home and abroad but russian authorities hope that a more transparent strategy opening prison doors as opposed to building them shot will allow a different picture to emerge of his confinement. done of. friends of soviet wartime songs have been given a taste of what's to come at an international music festival in crimea later this month details of the road to yalta fiesta were unveiled at a special event in moscow the festival is dedicated to the 2nd world war with artists from all over the world set to perform the best soviet wartime music the idea is to inspire patriotic unity and listeners and to draw attention to the
