e.u. officials seek to reassure that the astra zeneca covert short is safe stressing that the vaccine has a tendency it's costing lives but there are signs that the damage to public trust is already done. for me there is no escape since it has been shown that there are people who have unfortunately died after getting vaccinated it would seem the risk is low it's in their best interest i think we don't know what trust part you will be to the dark. police vans torched and water cannon fire riots about to cross northern ireland over post breaks it trade barriers it's. a former us intelligence analyst faces years in jail for exposing america's drone assassination
program we speak to a whistleblower who's in close contact with him. he did it because he was exposing a war crime he's not allowed to see that and so he really doesn't have any chance of acquittal. very warm welcome you watching the weekly here on r.t. international bringing you all the latest headlines along with a roundup of the stories that shaped the week and we start in europe where governments are split on restricting the use of the astra zeneca coded job on thursday the european commission warns that without a unified response public confidence in inoculations could falter we got reaction in italy and france. i mean. there are other vaccines so i cannot see the reason to focus only on astra zeneca if it has problems there are very rare but
there are problems with you know for certain age groups it should be restricted i personally wouldn't take it i understand that it can be an advantage for the community but if something goes wrong you could get thrombosis and then the personal advantage vanishes. for me there is a risk since it has been shown that there are people who have unfortunately died after getting vaccinated a producer of same 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 there is a bit of confusion we don't know what to trust 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 in 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
to be in spain of joint drunks with germany deciding to limit the job to those who are over the age over 60 belgium has followed suit with prudence now only recommending astra zeneca for those over 50 full life but those difference is a causing a headache for brussels it's worried that without a common policy towards astra zeneca trust in that situations could be eroded commissioner as member states to ask experts to work with the money to be coherent approach across the region through their guidance and analysis the trust you see extremely important we want to avoid of course the fix a nation has however it may be that. this ship has already sailed here in front there have been reports of people not turning up for they could 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 almost about why certain countries are making unilateral decisions against the voice of the e m a you know what certain 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 current nightmare jollity will be out see paris some marino is set to become the 1st nation in western europe to use sputnik v. as its primary covert vaccine the microstate which is in which is within its early has just received another 37000 doses of the russian job a senior official told us why they turned to moscow.
ok we've got outdoor specter we face a delayed to supply of the 1st doses of the pfizer vaccine which were covered by protocol agreements between italy and 10 merino the pen demick forced us to session or other solutions on the market through cooperation with the russian direct investment fund we managed to pare new doses of this politically vaccine and start our vaccination campaign with vaccinations are now primarily being carried out with sputnik the. we had an opportunity to receive scientific proof that this is a good and reliable vaccine and this is also confirmed by our own internal research of antibodies which measures safety and efficiency of the jab to date we have had absolutely no problems so a minor reactions we have detected comply with standard reactions to mean a station which include low grade fever chills and so on right now we have no problems with sun merino hopes to complete its vaccination campaign by may the enclaves home to around 34000 people and most adults are lined up for the job
ministers told us they've been working well with russia. we are definitely happy with the vaccine and are surprised at how good our cooperation with the russian fund has been we saw the professionalism of the fun's workers and their willingness to help as well as quick supplies of the jobs it has been a very good experience of cooperation and i hope we will do it again in the course of future vaccination campaigns. cause our fight against corona virus has some particularities because we're a small states with limited resources our health system has limited capabilities to confront the situation caused by cove it this is where it's crucial for us to immunize our population as soon as possible when we saw there are existing vaccines on the european market is limited which complicated the start of our vaccination campaign we decided to contact the russian direct investment fund regarding sputnik
the. european medicines agency is still considering whether to approve but nick they have a process that's been going on for months and for my italian i am paid told us the regulator must act faster. i think that europe is the laying too much or too given the aberration of. the utilization over sputnik in europe and their political point of view it is a stupid idea to do and then the commercial point of view i'd prefer to think that it is not so important because or even. if you were a commercial reason it would be in order that it is a very bad the i hope that a wheel or speed up but in case they do not i think that any way our government as other governments should go along and bush's what they want. for me us intelligence analyst faces up to 10 years in prison for blowing the
whistle on washington's targeted drone assassination program daniel hale pleaded guilty to trans missing and retaining national defense information his case comes amid mass disclosure of similar crimes allegedly perpetrated by the u.s. . i have to tell you when he called me a few hours ago he was surprisingly upbeat and optimistic and he he
remarked about how much press this issue has been getting since he decided to plead guilty so in the end i think that he thinks that this is been worth it that americans know more about the drone program now than 8 they did 6 months ago or a year ago and even though he's likely going to go to prison it was worth it the u.s. is flying these drones or at least it was until recently that were used ostensibly to kill terrorists or would be terrorists but in reality to kill anybody who might resemble a terrorist and that included women and children and the elderly and anybody else who happened to be on the ground i believe that we're we're a nation of laws and we have to abide by those laws whether we like them or not if we don't like them we should change them go through the process and change them if congress has not declared war on a country we don't have a right to attack it we just can't decide that we don't like the politics of whoever happens to be in charge in
a place like yemen or pakistan or afghanistan and then launch drone strikes against them it's a violation of international law. data which held gave to the online news site the intercept back in 2014 was made available to the public and he's now accused of disclosing classified intelligence information his supporters say these kinds of exposures are essential using the espionage act in this way to prosecute journalists sources as spies chills newsgathering and discourages sources from coming forward with information in the public interest particularly when it relates to national security where government secrecy is at its height these documents detail the secret unaccountable process for targeting and killing people around the world including u.s. citizens through drone strikes there are vital public importance and the related to their disclosure is protected by the 1st amendment hale was arrested 2 years ago and charged with violating the espionage act and other related offenses president
biden has imposed temporary restrictions on drone strikes outside most countries but there are reports the he aims to boost exports of unmanned weapons to countries including those with poor human rights records john kerry argue against those however justified whistleblowers exposure of drone strikes they have next to no chance of proving that to us all the righties. this is really the worst part of the of the espionage act this is the reason why ed snowden can't come home this is the reason why i couldn't go to trial this is the reason why jeffrey sterling the other cia whistleblower was convicted because there is no affirmative defense we are prohibited by law from going into court and saying i did it but i did it for this reason and in in the case of daniel hale this was a war crime he did it because he was exposing a war crime he's not allowed to say that and so he really doesn't have any chance
of acquittal the best thing to do for daniel as it was for me as it was for so many others here charged under the espionage act is to take a deal and to hope for the lightest possible sentence the decision that was made early on even before joe biden was inaugurated to pursue the appeal against julian his son it was that decision that made it clear that joe biden was going to pursue national security leaks just like barack obama did and just like donald trump did after him. twitter has moved to correct reality once again this time the platform has targeted a once classified video showing alleged u.s. war crimes the account of an aussie america correspondent with the spend it off the posting the footage with twitter agreeing to lift the ban only off that rachel blevins deleted the post but blevins told us the real issue is that those responsible have still not being held to account. they said that they were doing
this because i violated their graphic content policy essentially because in that video you were watching civilians and journalists lose their lives and the context they gave behind that is to say that for the families of those victims that would be hard to watch that would be hard for that footage to be out there and to that extent they're correct about that i mean this is disturbing footage and yet at the same time it's also even more disturbing for those families to know that even though the footage has been out there the attackers the murderers who are responsible still have not been brought to justice 1st released by wiki leaks in 2010 the ones classified pensacola beach appears to show the indiscriminate shooting of more than a dozen civilians in a baghdad from an american helicopter among those killed were 2 employees of the reuters news agency we can leaks that it obtains the video from a number of whistleblower as well over the years the video the twitter claims
breaks its rules has been posted by many of the uses but it's posed as a naughty journalist the trick at the system blevins insists that although graphic still needs to be brought to the public's attention. here in the united states are major media organizations like say c.n.n. or fox news they don't show you footage like that they don't show you how horrific it is a when the u.s. military commits these terrible war crimes in other countries they don't tell you what is actually going on with this so-called war on terrorism and yet it's people like us on to have taken the steps to put that information out there to bring the actual footage to light to show the public public that and now at the same time you see the u.s. government going through from obama to now by even talking a saw and going after him trying to get his head on a platter more alas # i think that what we're seeing is. increasing moves on the part of these digital corporations and we know nothing about them they're
completely opaque they know everything about us as forms of censorship for the ruling elite in particular the establishment elites in the republican and the democratic party who are blocking their critics on the left or the right you have to remember that during the obama administration and barack obama's vice president was of course joe biden expanded the targeted assassinations through militarized drone drones and there's complete continuity between republican and democratic administrations on this issue which is why the biden ministration has supported the appeal in london to get julian a songe extradited to the united states. as we carry out from monday's historic anniversary of the 1st human to orbit of the planets if he continues all special coverage for you later in the program a veteran space traveler shows the one cats you need to be fit to lift off to stay

northern ireland's 1st minister arlene foster has urged both sides to show restraint and the british prime minister has expressed his alarm and called for dialogue. i am deeply. concern by the scenes of violence northern ireland especially attacks on the p.s. and i who are protecting the public and businesses attacks on a bus driver and the assault of a journalist this week to resolve differences is through dialogue not violence or criminality meanwhile northern ireland's justice minister has blamed the u.k. government for the flare up and i am a long accused the conservatives of dishonesty over the way breaks it would affect the irish border saying they had promised to unfettered access while failing to work through the legal consequences she also slams the british government's decision to suspend the northern ireland protocol which was part of the u.k.'s withdrawal agreement with the e.u. and to ensure an open border we spoke with jonathan tonge professor of british and
irish politics he thinks the government's made a series of false promises to the people of northern ireland. for the british government bonds johnson in particular after birth a considerable amount of responsibility it was part of johnson who went over to belfast and told the democratic union party the largest party in oregon told the public party conference 3 years ago that it would be intolerable for any british government to preside over a border in the irish state forest johnson was attacking his predecessor treason make the signing of such a deal within a year for his johnson done that and since then he spends a lot of time pretending that the reason this border between great britain and northern ireland so you can survive the single line through the terrible sense of betrayal over what the prime minister is don't think that boris johnson needs to go to northern i'll explain what he's done in terms of the protocol and try and also meet with e.u. leaders to instigate simile the worst effects the protocol and diminish the number

to survive as 0 gravity a veteran russian cosmonauts revealed the hardcore fitness regime for space travelers but a warning to the crazy it involves some assaulting tokyo dizzy. the physical preparation is necessary for us to be able to withstand everything before and during flight pressure and 0 gravity to do that our body needs to be prepared there are special physical exercises which ensure normal functioning of the muscular carrier vascular and bell and system it's all to feel well on the ground and in the year. this is an exercise to strengthen the blood vessels of the brain hatstand you should do it for about 10 seconds before you get back on your feet and repeat the exercise 10 times put your hands on the floor lift your legs stand up and count to 1123 blood flows well to your head creating pressure. other exercise for the brain vessels as the arm stabs
you don't have to stand alone the most important thing is to put your feet in this position and then straighten up the exercise also needs to be repeated 10 times it's better to make it fast so the blood can quickly flow to the hat and back vessels expand and contract rapidly the next exercise is to develop your balance it's good for blood vessels as well that's basic forward rolls you have to repeat them several times before you get a little dizzy but when you get up and listen to how you feel if you are you dizzy or not or if you are repeat the same number of forward rolls and if not increase the number. when they would not say we love day you'll feel as though the stories they do get in touch by following us on social media will be back at the top of the al the latest cd.
