just told. me you told to get to shape out these days to come out to it and engage with equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. 3000000 worldwide. already. all. the reopening give us a breath of fresh air and get us moving towards a sense of normality. has proved to be a winning choice is every day that passes in recent weeks the number of

interactions is decreasing. 7 years ago and throughout. the same day. is revealed. to pm on monday here in moscow and a very warm welcome to you from all of us here at the international. at the weekend with a particularly disturbing 20 fold in new infections since last month in india meanwhile in europe a daily new cases have stabilized. and u.s.
7:02 am
pharmaceutical giant pfizer has hiked prices on future. potentially raising the cost more than 60 percent now it comes. with. details now with. you wouldn't think that big pharma and ethics go hand in hand but you clearly haven't met pfizer if we would implement a free open market principles in pricing the products we could go to huge prices and so everything we can manufacture but it would be unethical i think we will not do it's because that's really taking advantage of a situation and people will not forget if you do start it must have been hard when the 3rd wave started coursing through europe more curfews and lock downs were announced hospitals were overrun and pfizer couldn't take advantage even though it's sitting on the thing they say is the only way out of vaccine but no that would
7:03 am
be unethical the people will never forget turns out though pfizer doesn't really care about people it cares about fresh dollar bills so it hiked its prices after all vaccines are very expensive this if human lives the yellow economies to reopen but we saw them at the price of a meal a very nice meal in a very nice restaurant after all fisons vaccine is the most expensive on the market and it can't start handing out discounts just because it's a once in a lifetime global pandemic some countries that who can't afford pfizer's prices but still want the citizens to live thought well that's fine we'll just produce it ourselves while no because pfizer and co are not only lobbying the biden and mr asian to stop and low cost vaccine production to help out low income countries they even want those countries to be sanctioned are ethics but even for those who do have the cash purchasing pfizer is beginning to break the bank pfizer was 12 years
7:04 am
then it became 15 year contracts are now being signed at a price of $19.00 points 50 euro and with the e.u. signing off on a future order of 900000000 doses those extra euros really add up but as pfizer well knows the blog. doesn't really have a choice because brussels 1st pick astra zeneca has become vaccine non-grata after its link to red blood clots at this point it would probably struggle to print out its vaccine for free let alone charge for it johnson and johnson's hit the pause button over the same concern and the european medicine agencies not keen on approving any of the shots at the moment so the pfizer job stands as the sole savior all 12 no 1519 and a half years of it but if you don't count those 3 surprise a likely scenario is that there will be likely to need. somewhere between 6 and 12
7:05 am
months and then from the there will be an annual leave oxidation but all of that needs to be confirmed a vaccine with reduces in the 1st year and a booster annually after that what a tidy little way to keep those billions coming in to hell with the corporation to hell with morality to hell with humanity you really have to hand it to pfizer even in a pandemic it's just another day another dollar. meanwhile the tiny european country of san marino is enjoying there were tons of pre-code normality thanks to support nick b. schools museums and gyms have reopened as will senate was in theaters on the 26th of april the enclave was not a formal member of the e.u. it was able to turn to russia for its vaccine sputnik 3 is currently under review by europe's medicine regulator meaning it cannot be deployed in member states until approved.
7:06 am
vs proved to be a winning choice is every day that passes in recent weeks the number of transactions is decreasing. 3 openings give us a breath of fresh air and get us moving towards a sense of normality without spoiling the submarine and would probably not have had these reopening so sued and he said he helped with that and also because the e.u. agreements were failing to deliver the phase of vaccine to us thanks to the russian vaccine able to move reopening timetable for.
7:07 am
russia has declared 20 czech diplomats person on groton a rising diplomatic spot is a response to prague expelling 18 a russian representatives while accusing moscow being behind a huge explosion at an ammunition depot back in 24 teen the russian foreign ministry says actually is an effort to distract attention from an alleged coup attempt in belarus. herb surge especially as early as the czech government laid the blame for the explosions at the door of the companies that post this hostile step is a continuation of a series of russian actions conducted over the last several years by the czech republic one cannot also fail to notice the american influence by trying to win
7:08 am
washington's favor as the u.s. imposes sanctions against russia the czech authorities have even outdone their american masters so many diplomats were forced to start packing their suitcases in recent days because of expulsions and counter expulsions 1st of all america ordered 10 russian diplomats to head back to russia moscow's response was then almost identical then poland announced a similar move but they're saying only targeted 3 people and then eventually we heard from the czech officials who announced that prague decided to expel 18 people working for the russian embassy that is even more than that then america originally chose to punish you understand that this is a very significant share of the embassy staff so you'd have to think that there must be a very serious reason for it well the czech authorities have accused this group of
7:09 am
8 saying of working as intelligence operatives and also blamed russia for being behind a manger explosion at an ammunitions military warehouse in the czech countryside that happened 7 years ago and killed 2 people no confirmation of the cause has ever been released by the czech authorities it coincides with the decisions on diplomat expulsions by washington and warsaw that's not all by the czech republic either is it president is seeking some suspects in particular well you know and that is the interesting part because the people the suspects that the checked. police are now looking for actually people with faces that you may find familiar these 2 were once accused by the k. of trying to poison the script balls in the united kingdom in 2018 so now when the authorities said that these 2 could be linked to that explosion
7:10 am
immediately their names and photos were back and international headlines but the russian foreign ministry though is saying that these announcements in these steps that are taken by the czech authorities could only be a deliberate attempt to somehow distract the attention of the media and the international community from another story which is now in the news here in eastern europe it looks like when it's actually supported by facts that the west need it to cover up the importance of the information published by both russia and belarus about not just a conspiracy but an actual plan for a constitutional clue we need to speak about it so a coup was allegedly being planned against the leader of the roost what more do we actually know about this this is a story apparently that was happening more or less taney as the russian federal
7:11 am
security service has announced lately that they have detained 2 men one with russian citizenship another one with dual citizenship del ruse and the u.s. detention happened in moscow and these 2 are believed to assimilate the ball russian president alexander lukashenko and possibly even members of his family during victory day celebrations that are upcoming the bell russian president almost instantly blamed the u.s. for it for orchestrating this attempt but washington has denied any involvement now you may wonder what does frog have to do with all this what we have to. understand that the czech republic is a close u.s. ally in eastern europe it's a member of nato not with a central role but still and russian officials very often have blamed washington for using some eastern european countries the czech republic in particular asked
7:12 am
puppets of the assumption by the russian foreign ministry is that washington could be pressuring these countries into making political moves against russia to demonize it so that is the message coming out of moscow in the meantime the u.s. state department has already said that they are expressing full support for the move that's been made by prague. but you're saying with the situation increasingly tense some expos think the demonization of russia is the goal. this story in the czech republic it's ludicrous i mean 767 years ago our russian agents and by the way that they must be changed thongs because so russian change sponsors because they were you know not to to sow discord and you know make an explosion that's completely due to cross sense but once that you know it will be a food very soon this story about the munition depo of the czech army which
7:13 am
is not the 1st in nato it's a small army and it's not new clear or dead poles you know you know it's just a mission they exploded this sounds like demonizing russia you know as much as they can now. as requested by biden's white house that has expelled 10 russian diplomats one of the interesting aspects the story of 2 alleged russian agents for who were what became public at the time the script of boys in britain were people who might have thought the church would do instant we're going to rush in 2100 so it's very all this information the subject we decided was already known we were to service and 2 years ago when you know come sort of so there's an element . which is ours or should behind it. are still to come here on the program on our
7:14 am
t.v. as a u.s. states grapple to change your voting laws following donald trump's claims of electoral fraud biden's sanctions russia claiming it's in yet again influencing and getting involved in america's election.

survival guide. for the start. of the 7 years. of the. record. here in moscow monday marks the end of castro rule in cuba raul castro who led the country's communist party for the last 10 years off to succeeding his brother fidel . on friday this was the same day that the classified documents revealed he had
7:16 am
been the target of a cia assassination attempt details here with aussies. raul castro reveals he's stepping down what better time to disclose your country meal the idea of assassinating him this is the perfect metaphor of cuba u.s. relations as the cia has published once top secret cables describing how in 1960 the agency offered $10000.00 to a pilot flying roll castro from prague to have to arrange an unlucky accident the plot can be added to what some say where the hunting fidel providing a glimpse into just how big a thorn in america's side cuba was and even remains to this day clearly the castro regime. will not change by its own choice.
7:17 am
but cuba must change the way. you don't make friends with uncle sam by overthrowing a dictatorship ruled by his appointee or by building a socialist state right in his backyard for del castro did both his relations with the us started with a trade war escalated into a naval blockade of the island and climaxed with something that had the world staring into the abyss over nuclear apocalypse during the cuban missile crisis and island nation smaller than the size of florida found itself squeal out atomic war it would be the policy of this nation to regard any nuclear missile launched from cuba or against any nation in the western hemisphere as an attack by the soviet union on the united state things eased up a little since then of course the us is a very different country the soviet union hasn't existed for nearly 3 decades but
7:18 am
cuba cuba remains the same along with its ever so poor relations with the us we will not live saying actions on the cuban regime we will enforce the embargo. we reaffirmed today that any strategy that seeks to destroy the revolution either through coercion and pressure or by using subtle methods will feel. the troika of charity in this hemisphere cuba venezuela and nicaragua has finally met its eye calling cuba a sponsor of terrorism this is slander and an insult to gates cuba cuba is no closer to freedom and democracy than it was 4 years ago the age of castro is coming to an end but is the anticapitalist cuba heading the same way well roll castro says over his dead body it's not. nothing nothing obliges me to make this decision
7:19 am
but i firmly believe in the strength and value of example and the endor standing of my fellow countrymen and let no one doubt that as long as i live i will be ready with my food in the stirrup to defend the homeland the revolution and socialism it may well be right well what do you want it i hear every day. or staying in latin america is on contact or spoken with a journalist glenn greenwald on the death threats he and his family received after greenwald reported on corruption among brazil's elite. journalistic tactic is one that actually 1st noticed when i started writing about politics in 2005 there had been a coup attempt in venezuela in 2002 to oust hugo chavez editorialize that it was a an attempt to restore democracy in this us back by installing what they called a respected business leader and it's step away from an attempt to step away from dictatorship and this is what the us media has been doing for decades calling us
7:20 am
supported coups where they overthrow democratically elected governments and install you a pro u.s. dictators they call it and herald it as a victory for democracy and that's exactly what they did in 1064 they called it a revolution instituted by brazilians who are tired of communists corruption in tyranny and a century jeem as a manifestation of liberty and freedom. it is ati international 3 hour of israeli men have been arrested on officers injured as fireworks on rocks were hurled at israeli police separating rival demonstrations over the assault all of a rabbi and the religious leader was assaulted as he entered a traditionally are a part of the city of jaffa zionist jews rallied against the violence sparking a talents of protest of arab israelis who let street fires and attack law enforcement officials who had formed a mostly human chain a barrier between the demonstrations. now it comes as the jewish population of
7:21 am
israel hits all time lows and i'll make up less than 3 quarters of the country that's down 8 percent of what it was founded in 1988 the proportion of jewish immigrants is also watching this story and we asked people on the streets of tel aviv why they thought this is the case. government in the country doesn't cheat a citizen good enough fairly enough it's really expensive to leave the it's really hard to to grow and to create new businesses and actually to succeed i think it's easier to do it in different countries it is very simple the natural growth of the non jewish population was the higher rate of the jewish one that's just simple math count the number of children per jewish family count the number of children jewish family you add the numbers they are citizens of israel and it doesn't matter how many jewish or non jewish that's it or the head of the israeli immigration policy center told r.t.
7:22 am
why the demographics are changing but the main reason for the decline of the jewish population today is due to immigration israel has developed its g.d.p. is much higher than the countries around there are around the area many people in the past did not see israel as a place that they want to immigrate to today we're soon people from over 100 different countries wanting to come to israel. and that has bring into decline in the jewish population we are seeing the decline of the majority which may bring in the future for situation where the much of the growing minorities will demand to change the status of israel as a jewish state even if we don't reach a situation with the jews or absolute minority and that can have of course far reaching implications for a country that sees itself as a homeland for the jewish people. michigan's the latest us state that all debate changing election laws ofter accusations of fraud in last year's presidential election here's r.t.s.
7:23 am
but i guess dia. round and round we go another election now the scandal scoundrels least of which had nothing to do with russia but again and it's moscow's fault more sanctions more accusations and more changing the subject during the campaign for the for the presidency i was unequivocal that if i was elected president respond to any attempt to influence our elections the last election. and because elections are sacred they're sovereign undertakings expression of the world the american people and we cannot allow foreign power to interfere in our democratic process with impunity there is a sense that american elections attending almost into are need just undertaking sacred only a divine affair where the free and the faithful. cost their god given
7:24 am
ballot in the name of all that is good and america but all is not well in the land of the free there is a crisis of faith where as many as 40 percent of american citizens believe the last election was rigged at. our. presidential elections all the united states are a broken outdated mess the system itself is soo broken that in any other country they'd be calling it election fraud it isn't sacred when some people's votes count law than the votes of others depending on where they live there is nothing holy
7:25 am
about people's votes being rounded up or rounded down by delegates it's an old ugly mess that frankly should have been obviated sometime ago the electoral college is just the tip of the iceberg in maine and votes in 2020 were all over the place hundreds of thousands of votes lost and miscounted through no way were covered in recounted in about a 3rd of all states brooches didn't even need to show that id to vote and this isn't a country. with roughly 12000000 illegal immigrants speaking of millions and millions of americans with a criminal boss even of they've served their sentence and not allowed to vote none of this counts of fraud because see it's negro even mistakes of kosher or hollowed by the blessid constitution the validity of an election is not voided by honest mistakes or emissions unless they affect the result or at least render it uncertain
7:26 am
but hey america all it's talk of democratic processes never was a democracy it's a federal republic where corporations and billionaires can hammer the internet and the airwaves and the radio waves with billions of dollars worth of propaganda unabashed republican or democrat propaganda blasted at you from every side from a cab ride to new york to a country fair in iowa vote team red. team blue and best of luck if you're running as an independent america hasn't elected an independent president in a 170 years we face tremendous mainstream media and shout out we know this is a 2 party system so the greatest difficulty is just making sure that people know we're here without the nod that we only have these 2 options and i believe that's really at the weak to keep us coloring behind party lines at the end of the day russia doesn't need to interfere to make
7:27 am
a mess of american elections all it has to do is sit back and watch the show unfold but america america needs russia to interfere they can needs to blame someone else for this mess it needs a scapegoat in all of it on and avoid having to say hold on we have a problem so they make up more nonsense about sacred elections and blasphemous russian hackers and you think they keep the faith in the decorah put divisive electoral system from collapsing. russian opposition activist has been moved to a prison hospital but claims of deteriorating health is also used juggling. on monday the russian state penitentiary service announced their decision to transfer of all need to a regional hospital for prisoners now according to their statement his health is currently satisfactory and he has agreed to start taking vitamin supplements
