a pig's head is also thrown at the former home of which. very well welcome you're watching r t international broadcasting to you live from moscow. a french union has sounded the alarm at shocking suicide rates among hospital trainees the head of the union is pointing to a catastrophic toll. we're in a terrible situation now and since the start of john europe there has been one suicides among medical in turns every 18 days after a year of brutally longer hours on the covert front line hospital in turns in france are at breaking point trainee doctors are feeling the toll as thousands of coping patients remain in intensive care. reports. just to give you
5:02 am
a sense most interns are supposed to be working a 48 hour week that's more than most people would generally in a week but we know they work more than not sometimes around 60 hours in a normal week but that union told r.t. that during the covert 900 pandemic things are so bad that some interns are working up to 100 hours every week. this is got worse during the pandemic but it was already a serious before out of also sides among medics 25 percent were interns and among attempted suicides it was 70 percent 4 percent of trainees had attempted suicide and that was before the current crisis before interned worked a 58 hour week much of that in surgery and that's got worse during the pandemic it rose to 60 hours than 70 hours than 80 and in paris up to 100 hours so weak so it's exhausting now that union has told r.t. that they need to be immediate action to alleviate the situation and the pressure
5:03 am
for the intern's now they've met with the health minister here in france in the last few days and he has said that they will be measures put in place to once the end of the summer to try and find a solution to that but the union said that's not soon enough well as the couvade crisis continues to bite taylor in france it looks as if there is no rest bite that's going to come at least in the next few weeks even months for doctors nurses and of course those in turns really it seems that despite the fact that france is now in this lockdown the needs and demands on medical staff from doctors right the way down to those interns is as much as it ever was we spoke to a woman whose daughter worked in a clinic and took her own life in 2911 before the pandemic began the mother. has set up an organ an organization representing the families of interns who have
5:04 am
committed suicide during the covert crisis she say is working conditions have been unacceptable for years. my daughter died of professional burnout because of the conditions should marketing and started and because of the complete absence of measures to prevent psychosocial risks in the hospital where she worked every situation every death is unique the context is always different speciality is places of work but all these cases are clearly related to broken conditions they were all overwhelmed at work there were also cases of harassment and start of pressure but what they all have in common is that the american conditions made them more psychological vulnerable they weren't like that in the 1st place. and it's not just france one u.k. senior health worker has summarized their role as cannon fodder stuff i've been treated like cannon fodder if i didn't need the money i would have resigned which
5:05 am
is soul destroying because they used to love my job but now it feels me with dread and i'm permanently exhausted and these surveys reveal the extreme pressures u.k. senior health workers are under more than 90 percent want a significant rise with the government's one percent of the described as a quote insult to injury have considered quitting in the last year as is the case in france many have worked on paid overtime we spoke to dr john ponce is the co-chair of the keep our n.h.s. public campaign group who say's workers are exhausted. well i think this is a real wake up call the government has to do something i mean n.h.s. managers are not know they could be vocal in their criticisms of government but this is a survey which shows they are extremely worried about how the service will be able to continue i think they fail absolutely worn out and overwhelmed at one point there were 50000 staff off sick with care of it so not saying you were people
5:06 am
covering for post but they were then coverage for a huge amounts of safety and this means that all the stops being pulled out and that many people who also have to step up in cern's it to ing were it would normally be above that a great if you like but nurses standing in and doing what they would be done by thoughts are so awful so they've taken on that issue your response to this is so i think there really is a feeling of exhaustion and i think the one percent pay off from the government is really insulting particularly when a 2 percent rise had already been busted for and this is left start feeling very demoralized cared for and worthless frankly and with inoculation campaigns gathering pace while white the christian community is ringing the alarm on what it calls medical apartheid and notes vaccine policies would rule
5:07 am
out the public life to those refusing a procedure. this scheme has the potential to bring about the end of liberal democracy as we know it and to create a surveillance state in which the government uses technology to control certain aspects of citizens' lives as such this constitutes one of the most dangerous policy proposals ever to be made in the history of british politics the u.k. is considering using such that if it hits or negative tests as a quote temporary measure to ease out of the lockdown the passports are to be tested it there says like clubs and sports of at the same april and may however reverend william phillips leader of the trunk church in glasgow is just one clergy warning and nothing is more permanent than temporary. there's a fear about a surveillance by the state and other organizations. of people's medical status and that sort of thing and perhaps leading to deprivation of privileges and so on if
5:08 am
that's deemed to be not satisfactory so that's the fear of where this might lead and often. people want to introduce this kind of thing and say well it would only be temporary. but you know we were asked to do a lockdown for 3 weeks just temporarily. to halt the flow of the virus and here we are more than a year later there are few things so permanent as a temporary government measures income tax was introduced in this country during the napoleonic wars 200 years ago as a temporary as a temporary matter so that people are desperate to get back to normal there's a sense that oh this would just be a temporary thing but there's a real need to think about these these unintended consequences and as as a church ministers as. preachers of this theologians we we want to show people that they need to think beyond just the immediate the longer term problems.
5:09 am
meanwhile as the e.u. prepares to roll out a vaccination certificates or 30 say only those with jobs or. moved by the european medicines watchdog will get one we spoke to one italian businessman who sputnik the job certificate is being rejected by all forat east would have the details later in the program. the trial of former us police officer derek show even in the death case of george flow is expected to resume on tuesday but the public violence of the wake of floyd's death has spilled over with democratic congresswoman maxine waters even calling on crowds to get more confrontational a move the judge warned could lead to the whole trial being overturned. because when waters was talking specifically about this trial and about the unacceptability of anything less than a murder conviction i was elected officials will stop talking about this case especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch in our
5:10 am
function crowds gathered outside the court to demand justice to fill it while others protested on nearby streets chanting and singing but alleged calls for violence like those from congresswoman maxine waters have been resonating around the u.s. the deaths of flowing to the other black men such as dante wright have started hatred sparking confrontation if in the legal system working to judge such cases under tremendous pressure the saudis don't quarter reports. it's almost like something out of a bad hollywood movie remember derek show the ex cop whose actions led to the death of george floyd well someone threw a severed pig's head at his defense witnesses former hall and the police think someone was trying to send a message it appears the suspects in this found lism with targeting mr broad for his testimony because mr broad no longer lives in the city of santa rosa it appears the victim was falsely telling it is retired cop perry brought apparently made a big mistake when he testified that george floyd's death was an accident in normal
5:11 am
times maybe that wouldn't be such a big deal but children's trial is going on at the very same time we're seeing nonstop protests and clashes with police in minnesota over the more recent police shooting of 20 year olds do you want a right. with the u.s. falling deeper and deeper into a freefall of partisan division there's always a politician that's looking to turn chaos into an opportunity. there'll be another man i. know. that matter and. you got it right congresswoman maxine waters didn't just stop at playing judge jury and executioner she actively called on people to defy
5:12 am
a lawful curfew. that meant that they broke. but let's not forget it takes 2 to tango maxine waters is inciting violence in minneapolis just a she is the site today in the past as speaker pelosi doesn't act against the strangest toric i will bring action this week liberals and conservatives 2 sides that will seemingly do anything to get a leg up on the other it should come as no surprise then that even the legal system is becoming a victim of the 2 party system is political games we're living in a world where you look at something like the case of george floyd over the trial and the 2 parties see completely opposite things they live in completely different realities so how does that how did people come together to do that i don't think they do i think. it's best to you if you do get ever closer to. just simply choosing to not associate with one another we're never going to change
5:13 am
the mind of the tension remember what happened with the trial it's going to play in the divisions between the 2 sides of this country. staying in the u.s. the binding administration has apologized for donald trump's quote a renegade approach to the climate crisis on the stock asks if this will unleash a flood of over do you confessions from the white house. we are very sorry for the last 4 years where the president who didn't care about science fair enough right from pulling out of the paris agreement cause shock waves around the world and one of the 1st things biden did after bumping trump out of the white house was to rejoin it i'm all we're at it maybe there's some other things from the past 4 years you guys want to apologize for on behalf of trump there's plenty to choose from though that could take a while and dems are pretty vocal about condemning all that stuff at the time so maybe that's a given so what about apologizing for biden's controversial past stances he's had a long political career after all and then there's the whole inappropriate touching
5:14 am
thing i'm sorry this happened but but i'm not sorry in the sense that i think i did anything that was intentionally designed to do anything wrong or be inappropriate ok not quite taking responsibility there maybe it's only about apologizing for past administrations so if anyone searching for ideas on where to start look no further let's start with the biggie the 1st and only use of atomic bombs in a war it's been over 75 years since hiroshima and nagasaki were devastated by the actions of the us but not even obama was willing to make apologies for that in the midst of war leaders make all kinds of decisions it's the job of historians to. ask questions and examine them ok how about another war where dangerous weapons were used agent orange in vietnam for example and let's not forget about that forever war that biden has just promised to actually end after 20 years of bloodshed we cannot continue the cycle of the extending or expanding our military
5:15 am
presence in afghanistan hoping to create ideal conditions for the draw and expect you to different result that withdrawal speech surprisingly didn't come with a sorry for overstaying our welcome section but if those examples are too controversial why not start a little smaller. and apologize for the treatment and persecution of julian assange perhaps even drop the charges against him since his case threatens the very idea of journalistic freedoms but now what was i thinking how dare a whistleblower expose misconduct by the u.s. government's point is if apologies are going to be handed out there are plenty of people waiting in the wings to hear them but something tells me that isn't going to happen i'll never apologize for the united states of america ever i don't care what the facts are good ole bush sr telling it like it is. joe biden say's my current admissions will continue that despite his administration is missing its southern
5:16 am
border is facing i'm going to press the dented crisis more on that after the break . so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race in this on off and spearing dramatic development only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. is your media a reflection of reality. in a world transformed. what will make you feel safe. isolation community. are you going the right way or are you being
5:17 am
led. by. what is true what is faith. in the world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depths. or and maybe in the shallowness. welcome back and i talian businessman inoculated with sputnik v. has lashed out at the e.u. quote discrimination russia's shot is likely to be shut out of brussels as covert certificate scheme until it's approved by the european medicines agency but alessandra ravioli who's traveled to russia to get vaccinated ses recognising sputnik v. is outrageous. but i was
5:18 am
a really huge shock when. a few days ago all the council of the regiment media among one of my secret in it is located the deed or some of that but they did do the question today instead of the health and the task it was going on even more for people which are fascinated with spooled to me he said that eve luke in their sputnik is not yet our daughter as a recognizes from e.-man. each of us you need to do with sputnik in your land to read the early it's like if you are not assimilated in this is absolutely crazy this is real discrimination because for example now i am on my antibody i.g.g. that is delivered to my friend which the the pfizer asked for on the sleeve the sought for the money and a lot of the euro is blasting needed in the us and to lower the need and not
5:19 am
personally because they did it. and they have done to bad the lower than higher than he so it's thought that the discrimination italy's tourism sector has been devastated by the pandemic with a lot since last year alone estimates that more than 120000000000 euro and it has led to hundreds of thousands of job losses italian businessman we spoke to again point out taurus will only come back if policy is clear. by asking what is the situation would surely do because i'm technically sunni today already go to the 2nd those they send me that at the moment that is not any biggish on any extradition so i have to stay for it in the sequence sort the situation is i could see a very real what we left in a new fresh and judas the mission would speak to me and then they fly here do they have to stay for 18 days you know. a meeting governor dean nobody would come to
5:20 am
visit our county for example or for ash an entourage out anyway. you understand this is a very big problem you can be a really big problem for there for the summer tourist. joe biden has insisted migrant admissions will continue despite admitting the unprecedented immigration situation is now a crisis that as as the president is increasingly pressured by fellow democrats artie's kaleb more pain has the story. for months the white house has been insisting that it is not the time to use the word crisis for the situation at the border. illegally here right now the crisis the border i see he said the answer is no i think there is a challenge at the border of. this
5:21 am
crisis center but i don't think we need to sit here and put new labels on what we have already conveyed is challenging but now biden has given in he's using the scary word that he tried to avoid because there obviously is one so how does biden intend to put out the flames of the crisis well he's going to allow more refugees into the country. if. the traditional authorities in america such as the police and the border patrol are on the edge of rebellion because the policies being thrust on them from washington d.c. are destroying their ability to do their jobs and destroying before their eyes the
5:22 am
nature of the united states border i do not believe our system i do not believe our country can handle the level of illegal immigration that is being thrust on us by the blood of ministration i do not believe this country can withstand having an open border of what's equivalent to no border at all so what prompted this big u. turn from keeping the cap set by donald trump at 1500 to opening the gates and allowing far bigger numbers well. nothing works like some good old fashioned progressive backlash this by the administration refugee admissions target is unacceptable these refugees can wait years for the chance and go through extensive vetting 35000 already facing the greatest refugee crisis now it's time that is no reason to limit the moment to 15000 son had a president show completely and utterly unacceptable biden promised to welcome
5:23 am
immigrants and people voted for him based on doc promise keep your promise in march alone 172000 migrants were detained at the border that's a 15 year high those people are now the responsibility of vice president kabul a harris who has recently been named by the white house as the borders are now she hasn't actually visited the area sense there she says she just doesn't have time however border guards now suspect that she's purposely avoiding them because if she goes to the u.s. border people are going to expect her to fix the problem so she avoids it that is that's disgusting because that's putting politics ahead of what's best for this country biden seems now stuck in an almost impossible situation how does he please the progressives but also deal with the crisis he will say whatever he needs to say and i don't believe he is at present sharp enough to figure that out on his own i think he's being given guidelines so i think he's essentially being run by others
5:24 am
in the democrat party who have a goal that i'm not sure joe biden even understands and that is to get as many illegal immigrants in here as possible to make a fundamental change in the make up of american citizenship 1st get the mir then make them citizens and give them the vote well the white house spokesperson is sticking with the democrats sacred mantra children presenting at our border who are fleeing violence or fleeing prosecution who are fleeing terrible search away. it's not a crisis so while the white house scrambles to deal with the crisis one thing is clear while we're here talking the migrants just keep coming up and r.t. new york. many thanks for joining us here in our 3 international will be back at the top of the hour with the latest to see that.
