5:02 pm
they're on the feeder all of and joining us here on the program. so peter, what exactly have the sides agreed upon so far? well, this deal, it's been struck between berlin and washington, essentially means that the united states will not actively try and stop the north stream to gas pipeline from opening up. some would say the time for doing that with already well past the project is almost finished in about the start running. but what this deal does mean is that there will be major investment in ukraine from both germany, the united states. germany will be acting as a mediator, or at least at cold on germany, to act as a mediator between rushes gas problem and ukraine's nuff the gas in order to get a new contract. a new deal, sir, for transit rights for russian gas to pass across ukrainian territory into europe. they're looking for an extension of the deal until 2034 or so the current deal expires in 2024. so it's a 10 year extension. thereafter, at the moment,
5:03 pm
the rumblings from the russian side of being for quite a while that they're quite keen to do that deal. so it'll come down to whether jeremy can convince the ukrainian side to get on side with that. there's also set to be major investment in green technologies in ukraine by both germany and the united states. but while the steel, as they say essentially remove the chances of the u. s. trying to actively stop the pipeline and those comb, with some threats towards russia. the deal saying the part, the wording of the, the joint statement following the dale saying they should russia try and use energy supplies to put pressure on any nation in europe. well then there should be sanctions and there should be consequences. the united states and germany are steadfast and their support for ukraine sovereignty territorial integrity, independence, and chosen european path. the united states and germany are united in their

5:05 pm
then has to be re justified in special plants. ultimately, it costs a lot more money. the u. s. has said it won't stand in the way of this pipeline right now, but it certainly doesn't mean that they like it in washington. you told this committee that you believed to nordstrom to pipeline would have disastrous effects on u. s. national security. that it would have disastrous effects on european security by making them subject to economic energy blackmail from russia, and that it would enrich and power to carry out that blackmail. do you continue to believe that i do sen will not stream to it's clearly a very political issue in the united states in russia. they view it as a purely commercial project. they say that selling gas to germany is just that, that they doing energy deals with an energy partner that they've done energy deals
5:06 pm
with for a very long time. the me to repress golf, the presidential spokes person in russia. as saying that russia had never used energy in order to pressure any of the nation and never would use energy to pressure any of the nation. or peter, lacking berlin, thank you. at least 25 people have been killed more than a 100000. evacuated off the devastating floods had china on tuesday. the country's been deluge with what the weather forecasters are calling the heaviest rains in the millennium. i or let's our break down for you. what's happening across the country is we bring up this map for you right now. at the red region right there at the worst hit region.

5:09 pm
rainfall remains around $614.00 millimeters, which means the city has witnessed the whole year ring for each of the 3 days, the central theatre people's liberation army said on wednesday morning. it has sent for more than 3000 men and a 2 sets of equipment to fly to the flood and to carry out the rest, your walk in a sleepy emergency response level, a flat being raised to level one. the railway operator has to have a carried out to ensure safety, such as the stopping services on the lowering the operation feed at some residential area. so you must have to be cut off the water supply and electricity. the providential flow control and the draw to really had a quarter so reported up more than 140000 residents have been affected by commercial rains and who and i seems to like 16 and 10000 happening, relocate to the state police. so fall, dozens of cities are now tackling
5:10 pm
a massive disruption to transport. services with roads destroyed, swept away rail lines, damaged the extreme rainfall is also a threatening several dams and reservoir authorities have reported a 20 meter breach in a dime near the city of lou. i yang, a warning. it could collapse at any moment. a soldier's police, all sorts of military personnel have all been deployed to help with these rescue. thousands of people banded in a suburb of ginger. many have been waiting for luck. disappoint. last night we followed a rescue team into one of the. a fact is area where a 100 people have been mandate for 24 hours. rescue is have resorted to life both in areas where the water level rick is the nice michelle for a ride to help on tuesday night. his company is dedicated to dissolve to rescue your shame on me. roy thought all the water can reach
5:11 pm
a depth of up to 2 meters. many are surrendered at this point and they don't have any food. we're in a difficult situation right now. i believe. has to both move forward, the water gets deeper and cause how means the merge? local resident lead us when area where around 20 people waiting for help. yes, many cars are still under water and people in the area can get out on the 3 of us swam out to find the reza cute for help. there is no more bow signal at all due to the loss of internet and communication tools. this stranded on their own dozen people were found the traps in the lap dated building started talking about within an hour. the ring water reached by the shortwell. i was submerged in the water with me and put it up, put it on me on the mail. where are you removal of. whoa
5:12 pm
whoa, not yet. a migrant worker in jungle now has to find a hotel to stay in with many hotels either fully flooded. no easy task. this is one of the worst effect is areas the streets all inundated, the traffic lights are not working. there is no electricity, no internet, daily supplies are not available for the locals. what's worse? there will be more rainstorms in the next few days. they don't want the dtn don't go on and province with inflation in america hitting a 13 year high, people are rapidly feeling it in their pockets. a new poll says 88 percent of americans are worried about the disproportionate increase in living costs. president biden, though, claims it hasn't come as any surprise to him, and it's certainly not affecting his spending plans. our experts believe in the data shows that most of the price increases we seen are, were expected,
5:13 pm
and expected to be temporary. nobody suggestion is unchecked inflation on the way. no sir, is the kind. let's check that no one checked inflation claim. now if you have a car, it costs you twice as much to run it as it did last year. fuel prices have double your daily breakfast now comes with an 8 percent price. as the cost of milk, bacon and fruit have gone up. on top of that, you've got consumer prices that have hit their highest amount since 2008. now, despite the presence assurances, america's working families already being hard hit by the pandemic are starting to feel the pinch. the groceries are definitely and also the rents are also going up and just household items for making serious progress to ensure that it works. the way it's supposed to work for the good of the american people, while construction material is out of this world, somebody's making some good money. and i think it's because joe biden, we could help families in small business, is whether the ups and downs or as the economy recovers. i don't buy anything when
5:14 pm
it's me what the government says nowadays. i, i truly, truly know. look, we brought this economy back from the brink. now biden refuses to hear those voices . perhaps you listen to those within his own party. labor market tightness, behavior of housing markets, and asset prices, all rising in a more concerning way than i worried a few months ago. this raises my degree of concern overheating scenario. there are huge uncertainties, but the focus of concern now should be on overheating. and if that's not enough to change the president mind on the economy, perhaps this comparison is the wake up call. he needs. the u. s. is in the very best position from a long term point of view. i don't see how these can and well, when we're running now, budget deficits, something like 15 percent of g d p. this is beginning to look a little bit like a latin american con, pre printing and spending money like there is no tomorrow, as pretty clearly got people concerned. biden gave the excuse that the spending is
5:15 pm
necessary to tamp down inflation, which is where the curbside has nothing in common. the, you can't stop the consequences of monetary printing by doing even more monetary printing, which is what it means to spend the level of money. and the fact is that biden, and all of his advisors and the political party that he represents, are big spenders. and they want to spend more money, they think that the u. s. government can go into infinite amounts of that. there's no limits whatsoever. they really believe this. 5, mature is us, the problems are just temporary, but perhaps it's a bit like the pandemic and the economic aftermath. it's a bigger problem than was 1st thought, but it seems to be a problem. the biden's apparently incapable of recognizing failed mop and r t new york. for the past valley here in moscow, more than one and a half 1000000 hectares of forest had been consumed by raging wildfires and rushes
5:16 pm
. ne cooties region from 50000 villages have been blanketed with choking small g emergency services. volunteers and locals are all baffling to bring the flames under control. we understand around 2000 people and 300 vehicles have been deployed . of correspondent, mariah garcia has been looking at the scale of this tragedy. vault was in just one russian region. have consumed an area that is larger than jamaica, or mon from that group. and forecast aren't good. it's hot, it's dry. and it's burning. ah, me. the to put it far out, you have to, you have to get to it, which is
5:17 pm
a problem. given the vastness of rushes force firefighters are literally parachuting into the far zones to join the efforts. the government is sending more and more resources and manpower and vehicles and firefighting crafts to combat the infer those, but local activists said, still not enough. they're reaching out internationally for help. they've even us leonardo dicaprio for assistance. okay. i've heard you. i, in my management's, we'll look into it. then we will talk with the authorities in charge to see how we can be of help. siberia is dying now. also very hopelessly a help. can you post on your official page about 5 in siberia, please. okay, i'll fix a meeting with my management. thank you very much. leo. siberia loves you. the activist who published the exchange. they the, the lead to that, but authorities will already have the response. if we receive an official offer of
5:18 pm
help, then of course we would be happy if he came over and provided some assistance. but to be honest, i find it's hard to imagine what he can do to extinguish the awkward fires, sit in hollywood. publicity is always good. the more noise that people raise, the more attention that these fires will get. this is a perfect fall storm historic heat level lack of rain, dry forests all came together in these files that have burned down thousands of square kilometers of ancient woodland. and killed countless wild life. this is a taste of what's to come as the climate changes. because the overwhelming prognosis is that these 5 will rage worse and worse every saba, all over the world. go up and coming in the program here one are see other works of william shakespeare have been dropped at one prestigious
5:19 pm
u. k. university. that tries to be colonized the creative writing course more on that on the reaction to it. and just a moment the join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport, business. i'm show business. i'll see you then me democratic society with free speech rights, words are spoken freely in those words that catch attention and result in something that is beneficial to all have a place in the market in the marketplace of ideas, in those words and ideas that don't benefit society as a whole tend to get discredited or weaned out of the conversation off through the
5:20 pm
magic of open dialogue through the magic of free free. so what do you saying is that they no longer have the confidence to respect the 1st amendment. they are not a competent nation, they see the rise of china, and they've lost all their confidence. and they're going to be repealed effectively . the 1st amendment the, the, the, the, ah good to have with us for this program. south africa is still reading from last week's violence and mass looting, sparked by the jailing of former president jacob's rumor. and while the protest have already resulted in more than 200 deaths and 2000 arrests locals, fer things could very well get worse off these polar slim file. this report we here
5:21 pm
hillcrest waste of good than in south africa, where the feeling on the ground is that although the whites and looting has subsided for now, there is a 2nd phase coming and that phase could potentially be more damaging. with me is matthew and member of the local community watch. he's also been in the thick of it . why do you think things are going to get with i think we've got a situation where a lot of the, the leeches and the mother just have destroyed the jobs. so there's no way for them to, in an income. so you can't eat the tv and you can't, you can't go to bob and alcohol and that's all going to be going to be wanting to come back and need more. what about police station? i mean, i've heard rumors that the police station to be targeted next. and if so, why target police station, there's a big potential for that because the police do,
5:22 pm
you have weapons, they stole weapons up the stations and unfortunately, they're not running the position to run as well as that could be, you know, they're not very often not the most secure place, this is a local gun shop and the owner who has been talking to us but doesn't want to be on camera, has been saying like other gun shop owners in the area that had his shop not being protected with security. it would have been completely looted as it is, he's run out of ammunition as people have bought at all for fear of a sick and uprising at the moment. they're trying to take away all right, t own firearms, legally, to defend ourselves. the system is supposed to be you apply for a firearm, you get it within 30 days. legally. that doesn't happen. it's taking up to 7 months now. which obviously is incredibly difficult. if you're in a situation where you feel your loss in danger and you want some physical protection, you can't get it, which is very,
5:23 pm
very difficult to. so i think the events of the last 7 days of proven set we, we can't rely on. we can't rely on wound fortunate the police or the army to come and go to us. we have to do it ourselves. me. this is becky hill. whatever can hill industrial hawk? this is where one of the main hotspots for the reaches and the violence started. and they were up here for hours, they fight up and could really get you have a good thought of, i need the police to come and assist the police. didn't come this and the private security had to run because they went to court to deal with jesus. basically i'm here at a storage facility where 90 percent of the units were destroyed and burned. it took the police and emergency services more than 48 hours to reach ya. this is just one of many incidents that happened simultaneously in both durban and johannesburg.
5:24 pm
what we believe happened is that we caught the fire brigade and they needed police support, and the police were tied up with places like the malls and bigger, bigger establishments. and unfortunately, we were left without support. other than those local community who are amazing immediately. and we thank the community for the supports that we were out without arms support for all i would say at least 40 hours. people have stood up and we've done what we needed to do while we are doing it while we are supporting the police and they're not supporting us, is something is created. it's starting to create a huge anger on the ground. obviously on the main objective is to assess god our families and just to try and keep them safe. and if it's a really bad area to get them out of this. so we've identified a couple of installations, some schools and fields and things like that. shopping centers where we could get families together and come to and declare and potentially get a support to get supplies in,
5:25 pm
in people out until probably help can arrive when to the situation can improve the these items back to the shop by the neighborhood. watch who accosted the luther running with him down the street and recognised the labeling and brought him back. so what do you think with the fact that the co football back to you? we're very excited. thank you very much. see you all. thank you. not the scene 15 scene during the whole week, but it does show that some stories have a happy ending policy. artie hillcrest south africa. well, that's been a new victim of can sol culture, the one and only william shakespeare are now and creative writing course in the u. k. is to be the colonized which includes dropping the works of the english pe. right. the move was immediately ridiculed with many brand to get anti academic. now
5:26 pm
it comes off that some students are the university of east anglia complained. the course was dominated by privileged white male experience. so now a new module will focus on quote, the emergence of modern english from a multilingual medieval society and its colonial expansion. that essentially means the bonds being booted and alters. born in africa, asia, and south america will now top the reading list. well, we did ask people in britain for their thoughts today, everybody must bring their own political suspects around to, thanks to chase that this is imposing people use on it, and basically finding it it's censorship. because if you think some of the attitudes don't correspond to your own things, absolutely short term isn't completely misguided, obviously that each of them might find it offensive. well, that needs to be addressed to, you know, i've only been told that it would be
5:27 pm
a big mistake. the fact is that the place written when they were in the time to they were and i think that people, i think people are big enough to better understand what kind of time and why it wouldn't be. it wouldn't right like that today. but then, i think sort of the dumbing down, but nobody, nobody is able to process the information themselves. i don't think that's progress . the university has defended the move, saying that changes will make the course more diverse and inclusive. i think the students who are now study literature from all around the world, including publications, from its own award winning graduates talk radio. john gone, isn't having it, sees anglia, some of the talk in the world did that creative writing course. so they'll actually attacking their own needs just seems to me to be deaf. of course, let's make sure the syllabus has writers from other ethnic backgrounds. let's make
5:28 pm
sure we show it's in its whole new clarity. but the idea is that you stop by counseling. shakespeare no, or that you counsel white male writers. how does that help anyone? you can't just conflict and pretend to shakespeare didn't exist. i mean, they would never do this in some way, like prompts with molly. this is council culture outage, worse is woke agenda and the students need to basically get the life you can learn from the classics. wolf's at all. no one asked necessarily by studying the merchant of venice. for example. think that every didn't in there is acceptable course you don't. you look at it in the whole and that's what needs to happen. we want our kids to get education. not indoctrination, don't we? well, iran is facing its worst drought in half
5:29 pm
a century. the countries at southwestern province of hurst on has seen days of violent protest over so real water shortages. a 2 young men have been shot dead in the protest and one police and killed as well. a president hassan who is called the jobs on presidential with the average rain for down over 50 percent compared with 2020 professors mohammed miranda from the university of toronto told us that water shortages may not be the only reason for the unrest force that tied up on a protest don't mean that people are against the astronomy with public i'll be run. it means that people on the streets in different cities in the sun upset about the shortage of water and the problems that the drought has cause. and those are legitimate. what happens, go, is that people with guns infiltrate these gathering while it's going to be a tough time for ron. we have sanctions, americans,
5:30 pm
and europeans trying as much as possible to make life as miserable as possible, ordinary iranians, that their objective and simultaneously because of global warming, we have a very severe drought. and that drought has had an impact on that type of culture. and it has created water shortages in certain parts of the country. so the droughts in iran, the big storms in china, the flooding in europe, the wildfires and russia loads of stories an amazing footage for your rock now online at r t t dot com. the meantime we are back soon with more the with the i.
