i ah ah, gas prices in europe hit a new record with the german government warning people to prepare for a close to freezing months. meanwhile, the countries energy regulators yet to grant that operating license to the now fully completed in order to train to gas pipeline white house, declassified to report revealing it suspected for years that the mystery sounds supposedly attacking us government stop abroad will not unknown russian weapons. but chirping crickets and poland accuses the e. u. a blackmail for threatening to withhold cache from regions that don't recognize l g b t writes, we get some reaction. authorities have the right to knock them out between everyone has described you have in union should find another way i believe that the european
5:01 pm
union should not interfere with what's happening in poland at all. ah, i just heard midnight here in moscow now saturday. the 2nd of october, welcome to the weekend, we thought international. i'm calling bright 1st with winter just around the corner in europe, rec, old gas prices continue to sweep the continent. but germany still get to grants to, to vacation, to north stream, to the gas pipeline is technically completed, but it still needs permission to operate from the german energy regulator. here's artillio katrinka remember the times when bed coin prices were setting one record after another and every one was going wow, when is this going to stop? well, this is a very rough comparison, but this is pretty much, very similar to what's been happening to the prices for natural gas in europe. at
5:02 pm
this point, when it comes to the gas futures in europe, 1000 cubic meters of natural gas is currently worth around $1200.00. and this is a historic record. but unless you are a crypto enthusiast, the price of bait coin really for now isn't something that is affecting the everyday lives of every one. but for now, european households are inevitably dependent on the price of natural gas and how difficult the situation is at this point for european consumers is reflected in this ad, which is being played in germany at this point. have a look. i
5:03 pm
while european gas in power supply and demand hangs in the balance, the major participants in the market are looking to rushes north stream to project as a sign of hope. the project is intended for direct natural gas deliveries from russia to the german northern coast. and it could double the flow of russian natural gas to europe. however, it has not been certified yet, even though it's technically complete, that process has begun at the beginning of september, but it could take up months or even more than that. first, it's the german energy regulator that needs to give the project the green light and then a draft is passed on to the european commission. and we've already heard from one of the major players on the market that because of this bureaucracy, it could be that north stream to may not help european consumers this season. the certification of the pipeline, as far as i know will be so light,
5:04 pm
it will probably not be able to help was out this winter. now all what it comes to gas from the russian energy giant has been increasing exports. and we can name loads of the european countries from romania to greece, finland, italy at the exports are growing even though previously it was gas from that was being accused of this surge and gas prices. but the, the russian companies saying, just give us the certification, give us the infrastructure, and we are ready to send extra deliveries of natural gas to europe. so it could be up to the bureaucracy and it looks like the ball is in the, the european bureaucrats court. so to say gas from is waiting for this certification of north stream to all the water calls, brussels accuses gas from of manipulating supplies and prices at
5:05 pm
a time of urgent need. the russian energy firm of rest part insists that it is meeting all its contractual obligations. in their entirety earlier, an auto form, austrian foreign minister told us that you states only have themselves to blame your customers are only comp customers among many others. we are competing with china with india for so sometimes they pay simply higher prices. if lack of planning, it's mismanagement, i would say energy politics has also to do with securing supply with affordable prices with bringing energy to the customer. and here we have seen mismanagement that we have been focusing only on moving out of forsythe, not anymore allowing companies tool to invest and for sale, but it's a completely home, it's the lemma. it's definitely not that the russians are not delivering their, that russian energy companies, such
5:06 pm
a gust from fulfilling that contract. but the issue is many fault and the situation that we are in is one of our chief transition. and in an energy transition, you cannot seem to move out of anything without moving into something. and this has been the case in germany, furious firefighters, or the latest sector of the french population, refusing to about a new mandatory cope with vaccine lows. almost $200.00 in the south of the country been suspended without pay until that they can only return to work once they've been job to charlotte to ben ski report. now getting a sense of what the resistance is here from key work is across france to the idea of not just the obligatory vaccination, but then showing that you've been vaccinated by the use of this health parts. this is a health pass which you show not only for some places of work, but also for cafes, restaurants, bars, cinemas,
5:07 pm
cultural places to show that you've either had to vaccination shots a if it's pfizer or astrazeneca, or the one if it's the johnson and johnson, all that you've had a recent test that shows that you cove it negative, but for these key workers, they have to show that they are w vaccinated to be able to continue to work. however, in the southeast of france, in region, just above the city of niece, almost 200 firefighters, have since been suspended because their refusal outright to comply with this new regime. they have said, we're not showing you whether or not we've been vaccinated to. we don't know if they've even been vaccinated. this is more for them about the idea that they are refusing to give over that information to their employers. and as a result, they've been suspended, likely, according to the new regulations without pay as well. at now, just to give you a sense of how many individuals that is at this is about 13 percent of all of the
5:08 pm
firefighters in this particular region. so you can imagine that that is likely to have a pretty big impact. it's not the 1st time that fire fighters have shown resistance to this idea of the health pass. we know that some unions even took a case to the european court of human rights in august. they may have failed, but the union says it's going to continue to fight for the cause. the aim is not at all to increase the number of strikers or protesters, but to protect staff who do not wish to be vaccinated and who are waiting for a solution. it's not just firefighters, either. this is something that is impacting other key workers such as health workers, who ross, we understand that there are around 20000 medical staff. this could be doctors and nurses care staff caregivers who have been suspended since this obligation to show that you vaccinated car came into force on september 15. however,
5:09 pm
while there are 2700000 workers in the health sector here, france, and you might think, oh, well, you know, 20000 isn't that many unions have told us every member of staff that is lost, every member of staff that is not working. that has a wider impact, an impact on the services that they're able to offer, as well as other staff who continue to work. and we've heard that while originally this health pastor is only supposed to be in place until about november 15th, the government is already muted. the suggestion that it could be looking at legislating to make that health pass obligatory up until the summer of 2022. she can imagine if people have been angry up until this point, this is likely to only solidify that and get even more if that goes ahead of the south caucasus. and another turbulent twist for the small nation of georgia is larger than life. former president mccall, sakura philly, who was arrested on friday hours after returning to the country from exile.
5:10 pm
apparently, for the 1st time in 8 years, the georgian prime minister had vowed to arrest him if he returned ortiz donald quarter, explains why socrates back him why the authorities want him while he is facing some hefty prison time. that's for sure. and now the prosecutor's office is saying that they're investigating him for the additional offense of illegally crossing the border into the country. now we have to remember that the former george and president has, has been living in ukraine since 2013. that was after his 9 years of power back in georgia, a key of gave him citizenship. he was even the governor of odessa for, for a quite a while there. but during his time in ukraine, he was actually accused of several crimes back in georgia, 2 of which he was a convicted of in absentia. now those crimes are the killing of the head of the united georgian banks, foreign department, and the killing of a government deputy, which together have earned him 9 years in prison. and we also heard from the prosecutor's office that this sentence is not up for appeal. now the controversy
5:11 pm
surrounding suckers really actually doesn't and there it was his administration that was power in power when war broke out in the region back in 2008 soccer really tried to accuse russia of instigating this war. but actually, the international community has really has recognized that the responsibility actually lies with him. in the missions view, it was julia which triggered off the wall when it's attacked. syn valley in south city with heavy artillery on the nights of the 7th to the 8th of august, 2008. now why would suck us freely return to a country in which she's a wanted man? well, he actually announced his plans earlier in the week on facebook, claiming he was, he would return and quote, so take part in saving georgia. now interestingly enough, this coincides with local elections that are going on there in which his former party is challenging. the current ruling administration, but as of now we've heard from his lawyer, he says that he cannot get in touch with suckers. really. the georgian ambassador
5:12 pm
to ukraine has been summoned for more information on to what's going on. so the events co surrounding the store are really developing quickly and will be on top of it as they develop if you're live now to former georgia, regional, low, my current caucasus, and duration politics. experts certainly bakery welcome to our tea of mr. second. philly. it never one to be far from a draw. morrissey. what, what do you think his ultimate goal is in returning to ga, knowing he'd face arrest and let's face it. he'd knowing it would make the headlines. arts grace degrees, use you, bruce. and man, i'm who cost so much pain for hundreds of thousands of georgians. he was invincible. and extend the current georgia government also kind of help to strengthen this feeling of the man this last month before about him come back to georgia,
5:13 pm
relying on those the most devoted i call this call to movement and advisors. not at the high level people who used to be a certain core of deals we came from washington encouraged him to go to georgia. renew as longest is 2 days ago. it's really all the stuff in this appeared mccraney and that was strange because the man no, be no to great. displaying so much covered in this while he was around the country. good and made this kind of the south. now folks which can be independently verified that he
5:14 pm
hasn't crossed the border of georgia by himself alone. you've been accompanied by a small group of people so he didn't know but the visually, his goal was to create another riot and under chaos in the country. that's how he survives. so what do you think the authority is going to do with him? now if they want to avoid any of the potential protests and riots that you are forecasting there. if they do lock him up, could it send a message or could it cause the leadership problems? well, the charger said a very simple choice to make span georgia, or they feel too weak to pursue the, the laws and constitution of the country. we are talking about international criminal. he's been already charging abstention. the man who, like i said,
5:15 pm
coming to so many crimes against his own people. and i think this time around the government of georgia has no choice to keep him in prison, according to the law. and those decision, so chords plus certain other charges he's been under investigation and one of the major on the trees now has been up to sto threes. and i hope the case will go forward. washington's called the georgia authorities to ensure success really gets fed treatments while he's detained. was the us so interested in this? well, i don't think that the current is down in in this kind of
5:16 pm
strange circumstance. biblical go in afghan is really chaos here in washington. core action, ongoing corruption investigations shot their vs foreign policy worldwide has much time to spend on ga. however, there are some individuals who would love to see their old friends already condemned as a crate man by the georgia courts backing out. i think that was the, the major hope he had while taking this record decision and going back to the country to, you know, he was going to say a long term jail. and of course and timing. it's no accident because the elections
5:17 pm
are coming out. but how much influence would you say suckers really still has in georgia? it's very typical what's happening sockets, really simple. supporters are groups of people, not that many, but 10 actively devoted to their leader. and then no matter what it's called. and this is the fanaticism that, that, that, that, that search isn't bringing round for their existence. they supple national movement. formerly, they're willing to georgia, they're not that many, but they're very noisy and very, very noisy. i'd say passed, it's a great group of people who are very active and various
5:18 pm
social media people who create the image of being so many but the fact that many so the only chance and soccer really only go on only going to survival instinct based on being the power he kinda has to have power to sickness and of complex of the theory or a good man. stop is with that. and the only way they can do that based on their period is to create some mariah in the country. and they know that peaceful citizenship, georgia was never participate in any street actions. so they, they know that did their followers are very active bacon by taking caution in harm because it's the only cold day here and then make a big screen or scream out. so we're saying that 12 since have been denied,
5:19 pm
falsifies, and then they hope they're, they're drawn. so the launch, the master's outside of the country will hear their voice and they know that and then know, eventually something might happen. yeah, very, very risky policy. but unfortunately, today, george, it's a, it's a traveling time the world is watching, including us here at r t. u. unique perspective on this is really very much appreciated. certainly because we're a former georgia regional lawmaker and the ration caucuses, politics expert. really appreciate you talking to us this weekend. thank you. and you'll, with our see on the way the mysterious buzzing syndrome, the left american diplomats and embassy stuff sick, co that russian weapons were blamed, but declassified us report suggests a much more natural explanation. as i'll see reports among all stories after the break
5:20 pm
of course, after 40 years of fed interventionism by simply expanding and pretending and printing a lot of money, they got into this cargo called did you call it mentality? where simply waving a flag, you know, that essentially printing more money is going to make all the problems disappear. meanwhile, politically, what we've seen in america is really remarkable. the, the liberal left and their cohorts in the media. even though that this policy is causing credible of human suffering in america, they effectively marginalize those people as quote, deplorable and really made scapegoats of the victims of j. powell. and they've often said that this is a victimless crime, money printing and extortion. that's practice at the fed, and yet i look at those 90000 dead americans last year from opiate overdose. i'd say j how you got blood on your hands because that's a direct result of mal investment, money printing, and rogue economics that you're practicing as a charlatan. join me
5:21 pm
every thursday on the alex simon, sure. i'll be speaking to guess with the world politics sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm. oh, hello again. the u. s. they department has declassified a 2018 document indicating that enigmatic noises supposedly plaguing us spies and diplomats abroad, were actually just local insects. but that admission hasn't stopped the u. s. establishment in the media from spinning into a frenzy that the sounds actually came from mystical russian weaponry. kevin, out of the details earlier from artes, constantine raj, coff. while according to recently emerged, a documentary, this whole story might be just a big conspiracy theory. and it, what's really interesting here is that, ah, cricket chirping might have been falsely taken up for the sound of this science
5:22 pm
fiction weapon on this whole mishap actually triggered the whole thing. we believe the recorded sounds are mechanical or biological in origin, rather than electronic. the most likely source is the end is short tailed cricket. the recorded odo signal is with high confidence, not produced by the nonlinear detection of high pow radio frequency or ultrasound pulses. while it all started back in 2016, a with a 21 usaa service members in cuba when they experienced this medical symptoms including ah, had ache, dizziness of fatigue and nausea, anxiety, cognitive difficulties in memory laws. and then, similar cases were reported in china in 2018 and then in some other countries. while there have been speculations in the american media and they often were backed by their c, i, a sources dads out the russians or the chinese have come up with this cotton edge. never seen before. weapon that targets us service members around the globe,
5:23 pm
causing this, ah, vicious injuries brushes behind sonic attacks. that led to brain. injuries of u. s embassy personnel communications intercepts and suggest that the russian intelligence agency was involved. now russia is the leading suspect nbc news has learned, according to 3 u. s. officials, the main suspect of the intelligence agencies, russia did it. well, one of the things that sparked this exact suspicion was this in a weird noise. heard. and that recorded by you as diplomats in cuba before they felt ill. and while now it turns out that this could have been just rowdy insects and not necessarily the super weapons. ah, what's also interesting is that it's not actually the 1st time this has been noticed in 2019 to american re surgeries, herani similar analysis. and they looked into the same recording concluded that this were crickets, not something allison. some reason their findings were brushed aside in this
5:24 pm
conspiracy theory to con a life of it's own some of the mystery. so the think it's crickets, whether drove the people crackers at the end of the day. but you don't know as to speak to that these people the say they went through some, some pretty em the heavy symptoms did have that booster. not really sure. why then? sure. so the symptoms are for real and in the same report that di shoots down this microwave weapon theory actually confirms that audio as personnel may have been suffering from some mass mental disorders. a possible explanation for the report to symptoms is psychogenic illness. jason, believe such psychogenic effects may serve to explain important components of their port at symptoms and mid september, the cuban, a group of cuban a researcher is also announced data. the claims of secret sonic weapons were not scientifically acceptable, and they attributed the symptoms to you are what they called a mass psychosis on the part of usaa service members. now, whatever caused this mysterious illness, it apparently has become a big thing,
5:25 pm
an issue for the american diplomat serving abroad because we know that there have been around 200 incidents of havana syndrome, sedate, and just last week us lawmakers passed the how think american victims afflicted by neurological attacks act, or havana act, which actually is given the cia millions of dollars to compensate the personnel affected well, as i mr. about what's happening in this particular natural phenomenon. this is what's happening right now of the volcano cambrai, via in the canary islands. a new fishes opened in that major volcanic eruption that's raising further phase for residence on la palmer lava flows are advancing steadily towards the islands. biggest town now. they've already forced the evacuation of villages in their path for the past a fortnight. there also warnings that the toxic gas that's created to when lava had sea water could spread to continental europe. a 1000 buildings have already been damaged on the spanish territory. and more than 6000 people have had to flee their
5:26 pm
homes. the island has now been declared a disaster zone. next russia's 1st royal wedding in more than a century has taken place at a lavish ceremony in saint petersburg grand duke georgia. heard of it. romano of a descendant of the russian imperial family tied the knot with his italian fiance, his grandson at the last emperor's 1st cousin, who fled the country and declared himself ruler in exile after the $917.00 revolution ended the monarchy. with the low down on the right royal event, his eagle's dawn of well, it is certainly a 1st for russia in many, many years in over a century. of course. that's because the groom, the duke here he is coming from the he's a descendant of the russian royal bloodline. but that's not the only thing monarchical about this wedding. it is also the number of guests hundreds of people have decided to, well attend the ceremony. some figures very, very colorful,
5:27 pm
which is already quite royal in scale and lavish, but also many european aristocrats, dukes, and even the last king of bulgaria decided, well to come and wish the new with some luck. and if i may say, so the crowning jewel of this wedding as well is the venue, of course, it's the saint ice axe cathedral, a well as an historic church, one of the most beautiful in all of russia. and that, well, quite very well associated with the russian royal blood line. so yeah, it is a sight truly to behold. but well, this as all things royal, i guess this wedding was not without its controversies because the main question is to is as to how much claim on the throne the groom really has here because his, his relationship with sar nicholas the 2nd rushes last czar who along with all of his family, including his children, was well put to death by a firing squad on the orders of while the communist revolutionaries back all the
5:28 pm
way back in 1918. so this duke, the groom, here he is the great grandson of the cousin of nicholas the 2nd russia's last zak. and that cousin will he kind of abdicated and he even pledged allegiance to the revolutionary authorities back in 1917, only to change his mind later in exile in europe. but whatever controversies is the rest about this wedding, well there still, it will let the experts to decide as to what to do with them. and we will wish the newly weds the best of luck. of course. over headline news next and poland. justice minister says the country's being blackmailed by the e u by threatening to withdrawal funds and region to fail to recognize l g b t writes for districts of already back down to revoked policies that discriminate against the gay community. of last month, european commission told the regents that it would withhold over
5:29 pm
a $120000000.00 euros if the declarations remained in force. and during the summer, brussels initiated legal action against poland for alleged violations of l g b t writes. but not everyone's happy with the a use intervention which russians will never with her. i believe that the european union should not interfere with what's happening in poland at all. they should not act like that, especially if the city deserves that money and should be given it handled ease and sanctions of his type should not be imposed on i think the european union is right . how a government is very homophobic. i agree with europe, bullying city authorities had the right to none of them out now to be team. everyone has this rise, view of in union should find another way. is them the voice of i'm not a fan of pro l g b t zones that on the other hand, every one has a right to their own life communion, under part of the european union, it is very unfair. such thing should not be combined. here is the man and here's the money. they're completely separate matters. i think nothing should be done by
5:30 pm
force. if there is no such need in poland, you do not have to force anything. local governors justified there, you turn by saying they're not ready to be accountable for the financial loss. i want to export. we heard from told us that such an approach by the you to maintain unity in the block is a path to dictatorship. every local power should act according to the wheel. and i have a lot of a degree of power, especially in this case, especially in this case. so, you know, i'm not entering into the subject. i'm not, are not talking about lesbian, gay, transgender, and saw them talking about the general view, the general principles that should be well respected by the european union. there are less the european union wants to become with south assault, or talk or see or dictatorship. i think is a very.
