thank. brussels urges the e.u. to come up with a unified response on the use of the astra zeneca job fearing public confidence in the short sponsoring. one year for me the easiest since it has been shown there are people who have unfortunately diode up to get invites me to apply the same the risk is low in their best interest we don't know where to trust our true will be to the dark. and emotional day in space history as soyuz rockets carrying 2 russian cosmonauts london american astronauts long stop to the international space station days before their 60th anniversary of human space travel. germany reveals plans for talks with moscow to buy sputnik movie as long as the
jobs are approved by brussels. very good morning to you it's just turned 11 am here in moscow and you're watching r.t. international with me nick you are. where we start to in europe where governments are split on restricting the astra zeneca job on thursday brussels warns that without a unified response public confidence in inoculation could falter we got reaction on the streets of paris. it's confusing yes because to say that the laws change from one country to another while the product is the same we wonder on which study they are based those who had complications were rather young so they said let's stop it for the young but not for the old well i mean it's weird their management of the thing is not clear. for me there is
a risk since it has been shown that there are people who have unfortunately died after getting vaccinated it is important to get out of this health crisis and therefore we have to weigh the benefits and the risks of saying the risk is low in their best interest i think so they are never going to say that the risk is high and so that's right that doesn't surprise me confusing there is a bit of confusion we don't know what to trust so i feel a bit of the dark concerns over a potential link between astra zeneca and red blood clots is exposing the latest divisions within the e.u. after the book's agency that evaluates and supervises medicinal products that may once again said the benefits of the vaccine weigh the risks but saying that blood clots should be listed as a rare so i defect not although we're convinced it measures have been taken it's only in spain of joined ranks with germany deciding to limit the job to those
who are over the age over 60 belgium has followed suit with france now only recommending astra zeneca for those over 55 but those differences are causing a headache for brussels it's worried that without a common policy towards astra zeneca trust in vaccinations could be eroded commissioner as member states to ask experts to work with him to be coherent approach across the reasons through their guidance and analysis the trustees to extremely important we want to avoid. course the 6 nations however it may be that this ship has already sailed here in front there have been reports of people not turning up with a coup the vaccination if it's astra zeneca and confusion over who should and who shouldn't have it is right there is also a question to be a last about why certain countries are making unilateral decisions against the
voice of the e m a you know it certain that may be simple the head of germany's vaccine commission said the a.m.a. evaluates vaccines based on what's of benefit to all in the e.u. individual countries though can be more picky in germany we have a slightly different situation because we're not so dependent on the astra zeneca vaccine and we can postpone vaccines and thereby achieve the same effect but in the end we still have the risk of these serious side effects in a certain age group over in the u.k. a new restrictions on astra zeneca or even tighter than those that have been taken by the european neighbors the previously the u.k. dismissed questions raised about the jab now the government committee is recommending that healthy people under 30 are provided with a different fact seen adults who are age 18 to 29 years old should be offered an
alternative covert night in fact seen in preference to the astra zeneca vaccine regulators are now would voicing that astra zeneca provide another update on possible side effects and while for some the idea that they have a toy any chance of developing a fatal blood clot may be too much others say that they will gladly take the risk in a bid to put an end to the 100 nightmare jollity will be out see paris. germany's health minister has announced the country is in negotiations to buy the sputnik the shock from russia was the vaccine has an approval here and span expects deliveries as soon as possible with more on the story his artie's peter. well what we are seeing is the early stages of talks between germany and the russian direct investment fund for the for berlin buying doses of the sputnik the vaccine these talks were called firmed by health minister yen spahn on thursday. the e.u.
has said that the sputnik vaccine will not be part of the joint procurement programme for vaccines that system this all for $11.00 for all system of the e.u. commission buys in vaccines and then distributes them so well this is seen is germany taken independent routes in which they're looking to you to buy the sputnik vaccine we've heard time and time again from angola merkel that she was keen to use the sputnik the vaccine once it gets a.m.a. approval and certainly that is what we heard from yen spahn again on thursday saying that once the european medicines agency give sputnik be the green light germany is more than happy to use it the announcement from yen spun that germany as they couldn't treat would be in negotiations to buy sputnik became shortly after market zada who's the leader of the state of bavaria said that the variac had agreed what he called a preliminary deal with russia to buy 2 and
a half 1000000 doses of the sputnik vaccine you know we're doing to give sputnik it's approved in europe then bavaria will receive additional vaccine doses i think it's 2500000 doses probably in july through this company that is operating in bavaria to then once again increase the additional capacity for vaccinations. well looking at the reception to the sputnik vaccine here in germany it's pretty positive hugo of polling shows 55 percent of germans say they'd be more than happy to take a sputnik job politicians and local leaders as well also on the side with getting the sputnik the vaccine into the arsenal that germany can use against the coronavirus we vaccinate vaccinate vaccinate but when we need is the quantity and that's why the german government should finally sign contracts for sputnik be they should do their homework. every available vaccine has to be used russia is
a great land of science and i don't have the slightest doubt that scientists there are capable of producing an effect of facts ian not everybody is as positive as stefan viol who's the leader of the state of lower saxony said that his state wouldn't be entering into any side deals like that that very are done saying they would stick to the agreement that had been agreed with the european union also there was an air of caution from yen spahn the health minister as he announced that these talks were going on to buy sputnik he said never mind any debates about whether germany should buy the code by axiom that could all well prove to be a mirage because what was important was whether germany could receive doses of the job in the next 2 to 5 months because if they can't they already have deals in place that would provide germany with what they see as a knockback seems to vaccinate their population what they need is these jobs in the
immediate time for in an immediate timeframe in order to get them into people's arms straight away 59 countries have already given approval to the sputnik the vaccine once the a.m.a. gives that green light for use of it in the european union we're expecting a lot more you nations to follow the line that's being led by hungary who've already started vaccinating using it without that a.m.a. approval expecting many more nations to jump on as well the sputnik the vaccine from its phase trials of space 3 trials receive just over 91 percent effective rate seeing against the covert 19 vaccine that was according to statistics that were published in the lancet medical journal. it's an emotional moment for people worldwide and particularly for the families of those taking off and soyuz rocket has just launched from the cat from kazik stands baikonur cosmodrome is taking 2 russians and an american to the international space station so there we are to one
pays the moment of lift up. absolutely breathtaking stuff well the rocket took off on the very same sideway eureka guarin made history 60 years ago the soviet cosmonaut became the 1st person and space on the morning of the 12th of april 1981 his vostok one cross took off circling the earth for 108 minutes the flight brought a gar an instant global fame and 6 decades later his name lives on but here in mission he used to be a used to be the last person cosmonauts saw minutes before they blasted off from earth to the stars he ses he remains anxious to this day.
my head of department of the list of transport launch equipment over to buy a can of the 12 years now the 1st 4 years i was an engineer on the launch team which according many crew launches when i started working with the cosmonauts i seem to be more nervous than everyone else worrying that everything went well even after 12 years the nervousness is still there it never goes away the duty of care is always there but it's not so apparent with time because you become more experienced and you know what to do and how to approach situations as for the cosmonauts they're always in good mood they're always smiling especially if they're foreigners among the crew you know it's passes with jokes and laughter no panic of the operations crew the last people to watch the cosmonauts from ground 0 to the spacecraft and wave them goodbye because minerals in a good way because they've been honored to travel to space and carry out experiments serving our country the president of the international astronautical federation spoke exclusively to r.t.
on the characters who needed to make such a flight. known astronauts are very balanced an even tempered people you know most of them are very tranquil they have inner peace i am not like that an astronaut these to be self-possessed and cool headed to be able to deal with failures and delays that are quite frequent in this line of work once i was in charge of an experiment that resulted in a massive explosion and the rocket was damaged too it was a huge shock for me and i had to start from scratch again. that it's a real breakthrough would be for example finding life on mars at least some primitive life or if we could send maher soil samples back to earth in order to run lab tests that would be great if we could do so much with all the new technologies which are out there we could finally field test them and eventually map out the moon's surface better build moon stations and get ready to fly to mars as to the
future lunar missions the e.s.a. is also working with russia so their joint mars mission is scheduled for 2022 a robotic rover will be delivered to the martian surface that will make deep drills for the 1st time in history and collect samples of deep seeded rock and soil. we need to facilitate long term missions to the moon or mars through international cooperation this will increase the country's potential while reducing costs and helping to avoid duplicating efforts we have a shortage of stem graduates i.e. experts in natural science and technology now that many young people choose to study technology engineering and natural in space sciences so we need to start with the youngest ones because. i think you already got in played a major role in the lives of everyone in space research and space exploration spaceflight was the starting point for further development i personally saw
observing the traditions on the. can or before their mission like planting a tree or leaving their signature on the door to their room many traditions live on for decades to celebrate your garden's memory you can see all that if you're there for the launch of the most interesting part is the launch day itself when the crew check their space suits board the past and say goodbye to everyone you see them leave to go up the stairs to the hatch turn around once more and wave and then board the spacecraft it's a fantastic unforgettable experience. the crew will be busy carrying out around 50 scientific experiments at the station the crew will also oversee the arrival of a new lab molecule called science the international space station is a collaboration between 5 space agencies including nasa and russia's ross calls most it carries out wide ranging with search on everything from biology to astronomy and physics and as we gear up for the landmark anniversary of space
flight we'll have special coverage for you over the coming days. talks are underway in vienna to save the j c p a way the agreement the trumpet ministration unilaterally walked away from making the deal whole again is relatively easy for iran but that cannot be said for the united states does the buy didn't ministration have the political will to say yes. is your media a reflection of reality. in
a world transformed. what will make you feel safe. isolation or community. are you going the right way or are you being led. directly. what is true what is faith. in the world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the death. or a made in the shallowness. welcome back 1st they came for the gas guzzlers then plastic straws and cutlery and now they're literally coming for children streams the melfi french city of party as
literally warned quote kids shouldn't even dream of flying and she scraps funding for the aviation club audience probably boyko through on her bouma jacket hit the runway and got reaction to the grounding from a flight instructor and examined. how large a show you are willing to sacrifice to save the world air travel is a major contributor to climate change somebody told us to give it up i now agree maryn france has told kids to flood about flying.
j. young environmentalist matter of the french city of what ca one. has said that kids should give up their dream of flying in france of all places the oh you were mad bus the birthplace of the creator of the little prince i'm trying to son to visit that leave. who is 31 years old has said and i quote we must protect the children from some dreams sadly aviation must no longer be parts of the dreams of the children of today and then she went and slashed government funding through the local flight clubs in her area because in her opinion government money shouldn't be spent on a sport that has a carbon footprint so i'm off to meet a flight instructor and examiner. to find out what he thinks about the idea of stuffing flying in this french madness french politician has said
children shouldn't even dream of fly. what do you think about that as a as an idea but some point in the future it might be but for the pacific future it's just people. without god because everybody knows you still can come to it so you think the dream of. flying is still alive and kicking dreaming of flying should be allowed more of you get more power said once more his experience flaw it would be will forever video through his eyes car sky would cause once he was there when they're able to enter the form from a pollution point of view and then 25 in one hour in russia has more pollution than the whole of the g.i. fleet small aircraft say the m 25 being the big ring where it is i was thinking if we have international viewers to be green right over there are still in london so that's more than a one hour what we have in g r i carry it for you and carry the a.b.a. i.b.i. generally easier off the printer and this isn't as large as it would fail to be
less than a. wow that's a big claim a day yes a big plane this is the 21st century engine it's called rotax powers a lot of things. electronic ignition it doesn't need the additive to you. as the lead which is the normal fuel for aircraft because it is very toxic and that is a pollutant this doesn't use if. we're moving closer to the using for the future of the ocean we are looking at batteries that there is a search for the very heavy batteries there right but it's a song for the can be flown if you look at the onset of electric cars we've got mail is completely different to what we had one of the people that say you shouldn't fly any more aggressive down back said you shouldn't fly anymore people have said it was sort of embrace you know travel you know trains like the orient express in agatha christie novels what would you do is leave couldn't find anyone who isn't going to have food for what you say is now young people who just say
you're just an old man that loves flying and is obsessed with you know his own past time and isn't thinking about requirement imagine say without the right. but thoughts if you're thinking about cloning if you can even. if there were things of more people in the lives of law look i'm not you but you can't some at least be done for my grandchildren or truly a great journey or you ocean. is just a pimple on the beach but saw. that the way then we turn on the engine pressed activate the birth rate is religion acquired our code i think what really struck a nerve with the liberty loving french was this idea that kids can even dream of
flying anymore luckily from now on kids dreams are being policed just yet and for those of us still wishing to take to the skies well plane manufacturer is both big and small are working on creating new nonpolluting models. down to the us state of texas where a shooting has claims the life of one person and left 5 others injured the suspect a has been apprehended at the scene in what is just the latest in a stream of gun violence cases in america and attempts to address the problem joe biden has unveiled 6 executive orders aimed at tightening firearm controls he's labeled the issue an international embarrassment. gun violence in this country is an epidemic whether congress acts or not and i'm going to use all the resources in my disposal treasure to keep the american people safe from gun violence but there's
much more in the congress can do to help that effort. and they can do it right now . the 1st proposal we heard from the white house was an effort to crack down on how guns are sold he referenced ghost guns which are guns that people manufacture by they they purchase kits to make them in their homes he talked about gun show loopholes and background checks furthermore joe biden discussed what he calls the red flag legislation that exists in a number of states where if a person is deemed to be a threat to themselves or to others they are temporarily deprived of their guns at this point biden has been facing a huge amount of pressure from gun control supporters due to the fact that there has been a surge in gun violence you saw last year there were 20000 gun related deaths that took place and that is a 25 percent increase since 2019 that we've seen this surge of gun deaths other was
recently an event where 5 people were killed in south carolina including 2 children and that was certainly not the 1st mass shooting that happened in 2021. it's important to note that there is certainly not unity around these moves that joe biden has proposed we've seen that. the governor of the state of arizona put together a piece of legislation prohibiting sheriffs and police officers from carrying out any order that was deemed to be in violation of the 2nd amendment of the us
constitution which guarantees the right to own a firearm the state of arizona and its political subdivisions are prevented from utilizing any financial resources were state personnel to administer cool parade with or enforce a new law act order rule treaty or regulation of the federal government that is inconsistent with the law of the state regarding the regulation of firearms gun control is yet another example of how polarized the united states is becoming in 2021 this is typical double speak by joe biden this is a joe barton who's putting it if he's really interested in gun control who should be interested in government gun control i don't like the the idea of red and blue states there are plenty of democrats who are barry very strongly in favor of the ownership of firearms very very strongly in favor of the 2nd amendment and in fact that's why he can't get gun control passed through the senate because it's evenly divided and many democratic senators are in favor of this just like many
republicans. centrist republicans may be in favor of gun control at the end of the day this is starting a slippery slope i think it's waking people up to the real agenda of divided ministration he's going to get a lot of pushback not only from red america but from red and blue america where there is strong support even in the senate among many democrats to preserve our 2nd amendment freedoms. the united states may have the world's biggest prison population but it's not big enough for one cent as a republican tom cotton has drawn outrage for complaining about undue incarceration and comments about rising crime in major american cities. we have a major cause regime problem in america and it's only getting worse tom cotton doesn't know we have the highest incarceration rates in the world if you lock us a lot you will have no slaves to make you money i'm sure there is at least one of
the overcrowded prisons that could make room for tom cotton so he knows what he's talking about i think we're over tom cole and his ilk not being incarcerated problem as mentions the us has the world's largest number of people behind bars more than 2000000 a quarter of the world's prison population the inmates his share of the global prison population is also the largest in the united states which spends spends more than $180000000000.00 a year on the system or senate a quarter later published tweets explaining his position underlining the number of crimes remain unsolved he also stressed the nation's crime wave and said that those who object to what they call mass incarceration fail to point that out we have discussed the issue with investigative journalist dave lindorff and a liberal studies scholar michael rex involves things such political thinking is quite outdated. but you're a felon in the united states. for whatever the crime was and you've served your time you know and i will hire you you can't get certain jobs at all you're not even
allowed to get certain jobs and you know your stuff what do you do so be it will turn back to crimea desperation that at some point we've been looking at more and more people for 30 years now since the ninety's need ninety's and the crime rates been going up so obviously locking people up and like came about for a very long time is not the answer to the crime problem the incarceration rate stems from policies they hating back to the 19 eighty's and ninety's under the rockefeller policy which put me in prison people for minor drug offenses and gave judges no choice over the length of sentences so rose those certainly have to be overturned those kind of policies many thanks for joining us tara nazi and some national will be back in the cement as with all the latest headlines we'll see you then.
