by patient life, accepted death. accept the fact that i made that work. we had no fears. del change pretty fast for shots. different stories behind the bullets. ah, breaking news, an artsy as gas prices surged to new highs in europe. some members states are seeing read over, they used a termination to go green up the russian presidency that you use decision to ditch long term gas contracts is misguided knows that leaves europeans with no choice but to buy gas of expensive rates. also ahead silencing the sands, a marine faces potential trial for daring to criticize president biden's afghan polo despite another officer being hailed a hero 2 years ago for a tongue lashing trump and pulling the plug,
11:01 am
france threatened to cut to power supplies to the u. k. amid a post brags at rough over fishing rights, ah, live from moscow? this is our t my names. you know, leon, i'm 30 minutes of news and views start. now. we need begin this hour with breaking news. the natural gas price in europe has soared to an all time record. it is now as 6 times higher than it was in the spring on bouts pumped the continent on course for a major energy crunch. lieber internal divisions within the block over brussels green policies. as ortiz peter oliver report, while prices are as high as they are on the commodities market, this isn't so much going to trickle down to consumers as perhaps these prices are gonna fall upon homeowners. from a more domestic home users form
11:02 am
a great height to what we've heard from the european commission. president ursula found a lion is that she recognizes that there are major problems that we're facing right now and problems that are coming down the pipe further along. but says that in the long term, it's renewable energy that are going to keep energy prices low across europe. i think we have to be very clear that the gas prices are skyrocketing and her, but the renewables, the prices have decreased over the last years. and are stable so fast is very clear that with energy in the long term, it is important to invest in renewables. that gives us stable prices and more independence because gas is important. 90 percent of the gas is important to the european union, the renewables we are the master. without plants being dismissed out of hand by hunger as prime minister, victor or bon, his country, just assigned
11:03 am
a new deal with russia to import gas into hungry for the next 15 years. victor or bonds blamed these problems on the european commission saying they have far too many restrictions in place. far too much regulation. and that is what's causing the issues when it comes to buying gas. you must change policy because partly partly the reason why the prices are up is the 4th of the, of the commission. so we have to choose some regulations. otherwise, everybody we suffer. the problem for hunger is other, the new regulation of greenville, which is an invite expectation or flap owners. owners caught on, or the e. u energy commissioner has warned that prices will most likely continue to rise throughout the winter. won't see any respite until the spring of 2022, just how high prices rise may well come down to something as fickle as the weather . if it's a particularly cold winter, we could well see prices soaring, higher and higher. and what we've also seen though is
11:04 am
a number of european countries coming together and saying things half the change, france paying grease, the czech republic and romania, all of their finance ministers signed a joint statement saying that there needs to be a complete overhaul of the way energy is purchased in europe. that isn't going to be a short term solution though. perhaps in the long term it may change something. it's not gonna change energy bills or this coming winter. what we're also seeing is the european union is saying that they're going to investigate claims that russia is behind attempts to manipulate the gas price that they've been trying to drive up prices. this is something that's been fundamentally denied by the kremlin, the spokesperson for the russian government saying that russian suppliers are living up to the very letter of contracts that have been signed. we insist that russia is playing no role in what is happening on the european gas market that could not happen. russia has fulfilled and will continue to fulfill to the letter
11:05 am
all of its obligations on existing contracts. there is one way to get more gas into europe, and that's through the nod stream to gas pipeline, not huge infrastructure projects. construction was completed this summer. however, it's still awaiting the green light in terms of all of the certification and approvals from various agencies before it can stop providing energy. once that does get the approval that it's needed, while it could provide as much as 55000000 cubic meters of russian gas to europe every single year, that's around enough to power $27000000.00 european homes. the president putin says, the e, you made a costly mistake when it decided to ditch long term gas contracts. you also stress russian, ga suppliers. i've never broken any contractual obligations under are ready to ramp up exports. ortiz eager itself can tell us more. essentially, his speech comes straight off the heels of the accusations that we've just heard
11:06 am
from my colleague peter over there. and the russian president essentially has explained as to what role russia is indeed playing in this whole well, natural gas market crisis in europe. he also said, probably the key outtake from this that moscow is ready to help out it's european partners, as well as he did share his opinion as to what caused this whole situation. have a lesson subs lagaurdia and the boosted if they made mistakes. we talked about this with the previous european commission or of its activities were aimed at curtailing long term contracts for gas supplies, giving priority to exchange trading. and it turns out this policy was wrong. russia is ready to work to stabilize the world energy market, but this activity should be built on a commercial basis, taking into account the interests of all participants. let's assume. so staying with this part where the russian president is saying that, well, this whole arrangement should be beneficial to both of the buyer and the seller. for example, his reveal that gas from the russian energy jain that is supplying natural gas to
11:07 am
europe, has already increased the volumes of natural gas that it is transiting through ukraine to the e. u. and it's something the gas from didn't have to do it. it wasn't contractually obliged to do so, but still gas from made this 1st step. in fact, the russian president has revealed that this year gas from could set a record as to how much gas it has shipped to europe. so really, i don't see here a point in making all these accusations that russia is behind the energy crisis when russia has never, in fact, exported this much natural gas to the e. u. the russian president also touched upon the subject of green energy saying that while the new systems that the new pipelines that they are in fact, much more eco friendly and that they allow to reduce the c o 2 emissions into the atmosphere by about $5.00 times now the words in everybody's lips here is of course
11:08 am
nord stream, to the words that the russian president did not articulate per se, but certainly the new gas pipeline, the new gas art free going from russia straight into germany is falling under this category and launching it and which has been the launch has been opposed vehemently by countries like ukraine, poland, or the united states. but this launch could really could really see this crisis well received the prices to go down. otherwise, it looks like a very costly winter, but so far north stream too has not been launched. but clearly while europe could very well benefit from the launch that another of our headline stories that a u. s. republicans have accused the military of double standards over a marine facing potential charges for criticizing that biden administration's polite from afghanistan. now it is in stark contrast to another officer who was earlier hilde as a hero for standing up to the trump administration. ortiz killer map and has been
11:09 am
taking a closer look at the 2 cases. $2000000.00 from over $27000.00 different donors. that's how strongly people are feeling the case of lieutenant colonel sheller. he's facing potential criminal charges over criticizing commanders over the withdrawal from afghanistan. now, his hearing has been delayed until next week, but his family is not very optimistic or we have been told to prepare that it could be a long prison term. sheller was an active duty u. s. marine, whose frustration over the bungled retreat from cobble lead to making videos, bashing biden. and the pentagon brass that quickly went viral. people are upset because their senior leaders let them down and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability are saying we messed this up. i'm not saying we've got to be in the in afghanistan forever, but i am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table to say, hey, it's a bad idea to evacuate bob graham airfield,
11:10 am
the strategic air berries before we evacuate? everyone. i am submitting charges against general mckenzie for his bad assumptions . not because i'm vindictive, but because the senior leaders need to be held accountable to the same standard as us. he's now accused of breaking for laws, though there are not formal charges yet. now sheller is not the 1st military man to raise a voice about issues. lieutenant colonel alexander vin dammon was on active duty when he 1st spoke up against the pentagon. brass feat testified at trumps impeachment proceedings as a pentagon whistleblower, he claim the donald trump had made a quid pro quo with the president of ukraine. he was anointed by mainstream media and the democrats as a st. this guy 0. this guy is a patriot. and one of these 2 men, the president and lieutenant colonel whitman, devoted his life to duty and honor. right matters what an extraordinary statement from an immigrant who served this country proudly his entire life. now the answers
11:11 am
from the white house quickly turned evasive when they faced some tough questions about parallels. present vancover 10 colonel alexander vin minute hero, for speaking out against his commander, she even has for the capitol hill in uniform. so how is this different, especially since you just said the president welcomed the candor and the advice of his military adviser? does the president also feel with sheller hero? i dont have all the details on these circumstances. i understand that can be frustrating to you. um, but we will work to get you an answer on republicans or speaking up saying that they see a double standard if you speak out against the democratic president who get thrown in the brig. but if you're doing something against a republican president, you are lord of the hero. this is double standard. lieutenant colonel vinland was celebrated by media while of tenant girls sheller is in prison for demanding
11:12 am
accountability on the disastrous withdrawal. both challenged leadership. one was treated as a hero and the other punished. i remember when military leadership wasn't an oxymoron, it's no wonder they can see the obvious coming any more. the best bureau cuts on the absolute worst wolfowitz is of the ones that get promoted and make the decisions. military leaders who criticize donald trump got talk, show appearances, and look deals treated almost like heroes. while one who just criticized biden is facing a hearing and a potentially long term spell behind bars. the double stay in that we c p, an exercise here today. it's a very dangerous precedent escort or gets the standard by democrats, 1st of all it, but also manifested tremendously by the mass. media tends to be predominantly, less leading and very much in the pocket b o, the democratic party. anything that was an antique trump was hailed and so it's not
11:13 am
surprising. anything republican, as the chase of benjamin was treated with kid gloves now. and as a consequence, or he gets off scot free, having no leet, classified information. the political landscape has certainly evolved from what it was a year ago. democrats are no longer celebrating those with the courage to speak up against those in power. being a hero isn't so much about what you do, but who you do it against? kayla mopping r t new york still ahead front threatens to could to power supplies to the new case and made up post breaks at rover fishing writes not to head on the program . shortly lou ah joined me every thursday on the alex simon. she'll. and i'll be
11:14 am
speaking to guess of the world politics, small business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. oh, is your media a reflection of reality? ah, in a world transformed what will make you feel safer? high selection for community. are you going the right way? or are you being led to somewhere? which direction? what is true? what is faith? in the world corrupted you need to descend. ah, so join us in the depths or remain in the shallows.
11:15 am
ah, ah, a quarter of an hour into the program, welcome back fronts is threatening to cut cross channel electricity supplies to the u. k. over a post that brags it fishing dispute. charlotte dubin ski reports not from paris on a fight that threatens to op, and a series of crucial agreements between the european allies. france could be about to slam the brakes on the relationship with you. k, as this raw rover fishing rights is pretty much imploding. last week, the u. k refused the majority of licenses that came from french, smaller fishing vessels to fish in it's would it only approved 12 out of $47.00. as a result of that iris is furious. it's now saying the bilateral agreements that cover everything from security,
11:16 am
border control to trade in energy are now under threat because paris says that london simply cannot keep its commitments under the brakes. it deal. bruton does not respect its own signature month after month the u. k. presents new conditions and delays given definite if licenses this cannot be tolerated. we know the u. k is facing this unprecedented energy crisis just like pretty much all of the countries across continental europe. and it could be a back to get even worse, because francis said that it could in the next few days decide to turn off electricity supplies to the u. k. well, how significant is that? pretty darn significant. according to you, k governments own papers in july of this year, france supplies almost half of the energy for electricity for the u. k. to this really could see the lights being turned out. well, you mean it,
11:17 am
boss buquet depends on our energy exports. they think they can live alone while also beating up on your, on a, given that it doesn't work. the engage an aggressive one. upmanship. we negotiate a comma nicely or 9 months, and all shots are not, they don't and add to this pretty much perfect storm or threats that are coming directly from the french fishermen themselves. now we know that force johnson has already warned the u. k. that would be supply issues in the lead up to christmas. that with energy that's with petro, that's also with products in stores. and now french fishermen the same. you know, what, if you do not a all fishing licenses, we are going to block the ports. we'll make sure that they'll be no imports and no exports between europe and the u. k, which really could add to, boris johnson was and those are threats that the u. k. should also take pretty seriously, given that we know that the french one, they like to protest and to they have already been tense stand offs in the last year over this issue over fishing licenses. now the u. k, for its part says look,
11:18 am
we've done nothing wrong. in fact, we're keeping to our commitments and we're keeping the agreement over fishing licenses. we have granted 98 percent of the license applications from e u boats to fish in our waters. so we do not accept that we are not a biden by traded cooperation agreement. we have been extremely generous and the french folks in, in, on a small category of boats and claim. and we have behaved, unreasonably, i think, is not really a fair reflection of the efforts we have made france as well as pulling out the big guns with those threats over energy. and bi lateral trades has also asked for the european commission to take a much tougher stance when it comes to the u. k. over this and other issues. the u commission though, isn't sort of really wanting to get into the murky waters over this particular spat . it saying what it's going to do is to ask the u. k. can explain its methodology and it will sort of go from that or limp from that. the reality is though,
11:19 am
in this prose bankers it will as the issue surrounding that are beginning to bite. there is a real threat coming from france at the moment, and it does seem as if forest johnson has some really tough decisions to make. he is essentially caught between the devil and the deep. please say facebook is in damage control load following claims of spreading hate. and the vision, an employee turned whistleblower testified before the u. s. senate on tuesday after leaking a trove of company documents and a lengthy response on his page to that c e. o. mark zuckerberg denied prioritizing money over the platform to users. we care deeply about issues like safety, well being and mental health. it's difficult to see covers that miss represents our work and our motives. i don't know any tech company that sets out to build products that make people angry or depressed. the moral business and product incentives all
11:20 am
point in the opposite direction. facebook exploited teams. do you think that teams are profitable for their company? i would assume so those dangerous algorithms that they admit are picking up dead that they stream sentence that vision their product. it is often destructive case books, products, harm, children, stoked to vision, and weak in our democracy. the damage to self interest and self worth of inflicted by facebook to day will haunt a generation. it is pulling families apart. and in places like ethiopia, it's literally fanning. i think violence. well, it's a very different picture from a decade ago when platforms like facebook and twitter were being lauded by liberal commentators for a few ang pushed towards democracy in the middle east. during the ard spring social media play, a role in social media is much broader than sending a 144 characters or twitter, or updating your staff, post on facebook. those are use your giving facebook
11:21 am
a lot of credit for this or yeah, for sure. i want to meet mark zuckerberg one day and thank him. actually indeed, social media did have some very pronounced impacts on the arab spring. on earlier, my colleague niel harvey discussed the shifting opinions on facebook, where authority contributor nico house it does seem a little bit peculiar that in 2011 with countries like tenicia libby on egypt, facebook was not only the celebrated for put like for helping spread the news about the protest, but the algorithm seemed to be for perpetuating the protests and propelling them for that millions of people are able to react and noticed what was going on. now, interestingly enough, about 3 of those countries to protest there actually benefited united states interests. so what it seems like is on the like, now that the script has been flipped 10 years later. censorship actually benefits the united states. so i guess you could say it's pro democracy,
11:22 am
i guess if you want to call facebook, you know, a democratic institution, i guess you could call it that because the government seems to be on the side of censorship. facebook as readily pushes the ship, isn't it very different based these days? so what it was years ago does less freedom of conversation, freedom of exchange, freedom of discourse. ah, there seems to be no consistent application of rules or principles or guidelines on any of these platforms. and i would say that at least on the surface now, it looks like the government, at least their opinions have much more influence. i mean, just a couple of weeks ago, jim pa, sanky was actually saying that it was time to come down harder on facebook and regulate them more fast for this whistleblower who's actually represented by a firm that the sac he actually worked for. or at a senior adviser, not even, not even a year ago is now sitting in front of the senate. after going on 60 minutes, i'm getting a lot of air time. so i would say at the bare minimum, what it looks like is there is a lot of coordination going on behind the scenes in one way or another that
11:23 am
everybody seems to be involved in, except for the people who are most afflicted by which i would say is the average working class individual and maybe potentially activists organizing protesters a do you think you ask of an fiscal, has it the powers at its disposal to, to limit to rain in facebook? i think the thing that they need to do the rain facebook and is to hold them to the standards of a publisher. ah. whereas enabling escaping a lot of accountability for the for the how they selectively apply their rules. i like back their editorial list. but date, but the federal government hadn't done anything about it. now on the other side of that fence, they do have the capability. the force in the sense are more to what it does seem like they've had to. they fit every time. one of these is, this is happened. facebook seems to sense or more on their own. so even though they have the power, they have an exercise it. and they've been able to get faced with the kind of do what they want more and more without ever having to hold them accountable. and in legal matter. and it should be noticed as well that this week's hearing us senators,
11:24 am
they call for tougher controls and facebook and other social media giant. but that means there are plenty of questions over how the government might use or indeed abuse that control r t host been sworn breaks on how that aspect was approached by congressman on the panel yesterday. what they're essentially saying is government needs to get involved and government needs to decide what content is allowed and not a lot on social media in order to make it the word they like to use. safe problem is, is that there are so many tens of millions of americans who do not believe that government is trying to keep them safe. but instead of trying to manipulate them and put political messages on to them, should social media b, a public square where people are allowed to get up and speak and into voice their opinions and their worldviews and where rigorous debate can take place. as you would have in a public square or is social media supposed to be contrived and controlled to the point where a few government entities and bureaucrats decide what is acceptable thought and
11:25 am
acceptable belief. and i think that's the real core problem here. when government bureaucracy decides what is dangerous and what is not in the public interest, it breeds all kinds of corruption. and it reads a situation where the average person doesn't have a right to speak or to think in any kind of public sphere. and i think that's hugely problematic, been sold. now, whenever i think i have it hard, i like to turn in to a short documentary about people working in rushes, frozen north on. realize just maybe i don't have a too bad after all. see if you feel the same at tundra wonder mom starts after the break. mm hm. ah ah, ah,
11:26 am
ah ah, ah, a ah, with i'm in the see hong the internet. the allows olu problems and much was going to invite everybody's lloyd. that wasn't the glitch. that was the feature that the faithful who does owns the internet, is owned by a
11:27 am
it's a process almost basically, but i see you back, please go. he did. who bought? i bought off the dial tomorrow, a couple of review on your quote, but i know from politicians to athletes and movies. delta musicals does it seems every big name in the world has been here. let's see here. hope of miss. you can pick up a budget when you get the call when you finish with give me a glover, new sport. but she said basil makes dreams. come true. the every one who falls in love with people like what? mm. imagine picking up a future textbook on the early years of the 21st century. what other chapters cold
11:28 am
gun violence, school shootings, homelessness? first, it was my job and then it was my family. didn't was my savings. i have nothing. i have nothing and it's not like i don't try. i look for resources, i look for jobs, i look for everything i can to make this pass. and i end up doing is passing time, the road to the american dream paved with dead refugees. it's very idealized image . all this older america makes americans look past the data to happen every single day. this is a modern history of the usa by america on r t o a. the way of life of reindeer herders leading a traditionally nomadic lifestyle in the tundra is similar to a parallel reality,
11:29 am
which sharply contrast with the usual realities of megacity. while the men drive the hoods, women carry the weight of the household work on their shoulders, but no one would ever put housewife on their cd. it's not considered a profession or an occupation that you'd get a salary or a pension for. however, in the vast expanse of russia, there is a spot where a housewife could secure a regular employment status. it's in the far north. but there's just one tricky bit unlike any other housewife, such a woman would have to live in a church attent covered with randy a hides that moves location several times a week. ah yeah. like rules i, when you come up with in, usually with oh, why do with that i do
