will be held to account, but alone marine lieutenant colonel does face court martial. is this justice ah, with ah, top stores here one r t for this hour? a whistleblower who made damming allegations against facebook is now her self under scrutiny. critics sees on her close tie to the democrats and accuse her of lobbying, come more social media. censorship. lot of africans pledged a boost of natural gas applies to europe. does come nerves on the energy market after this week's record price. so also russia fall as a counter request to the global chemical weapons watchdog. after the u. s. demanded data on the alleged poisoning of permanent critic alexi and abound in the program.
2:01 am
we hear from russia's envoys, the o. p. c. w. about why it's refusing to cooperate with moscow, on this case. status if she is a feeling that something else, how that goals are driving them, it is possible that this whole story is connected with the escalation of sanctions pressure. ah, well, it is faster turning into a busy friday for your world wide headlines here were naughty international. welcome to the program. i'm rural re sushi. a facebook whistleblower who leaked a stash of internal files from the social media giant is now seeing her motives questioned. it turns out francis hogan has close ties to the democrats, something she failed to mention while urging congress to take action against her former employer. facebook's products harm children, stoke division, and we can our democracy. the company's leadership knows how to make facebook and
2:02 am
instagram saver a won't make the necessary changes because they have put their astronomical profits for people. congressional action is needed. now, do try to bear with me here. it might seem a bit confusing. frauds. halligan is being represented by a co founder of whistleblower aid, john tie, who served in the obama administration. the other co founder of the organization, which helps whistleblowers pay their lawyers. fees is mod zayed. he was a legal representative for alexander windman, a white house staff, a who testified in trump's 1st impeachment trial. now, max blumenthal, the editor in chief of the greys, are in the points, 2 other alleged links and says, political affiliation is no surprise. in this case, her testimony dovetails very closely with the democrat censorship agenda. their plan or their desire to heavily sensor social media. frances,
2:03 am
how again was pushing that agenda if it's true that bryson gillette, the strategic communications firm that is reportedly advising francis how going and which was founded by former obama aid bill burton. does it enjoy this relationship with her? then we also have to consider her relationship, a possible relationship with abide and white house whose press secretary, gen saki. i actually used to be employed as a senior advisor by bryson juliette. what's clear here is that democratic operatives were not. if these reports are true, are providing p r advice and promotion to francis how get a previously unknown figure, who was instantly verified by twitter, the day of her carefully coordinated and crafted testimony. so she's not as a, an actual whistleblower. she is a political operative advancing
2:04 am
a cohesive agenda. what's void? some of the transit hogan is a regular donor to democrat affiliated organizations, helping party candidates to get elected. max blumenthal again, the things hogan is effectively lobbying for most censorship of social media. she just wants more government intervention. so i think the impact we're going to see going forward is more censorship, more intervention from the intelligence services. and the reorientation of these social media sites to target official u. s. enemies per her recommendation. i think of, you know, it can, it can benefit multiple causes, you could see it benefiting the religious. right. that doesn't like the kind of semi pornographic content on instagram and the way it degrades women of feminist could get behind it. but behind it all is a much more insidious agenda that how gin outlines she has explicitly called for bass, beefing up facebook counter espionage team to take on official enemies. she named
2:05 am
me and mar ethiopia, which is a new target of u. s. empire, as well as iran and china. she did not refer to facebook working with any u. s. allies to carry out malicious activities. this is an extension of the narrative we've been hearing since the russia gate saga began this week's record. so jer, natural gas prices for europe, has eased somewhat author, assurances from vladimir putin that russia is ready to ramp up supplies. i'll speaking on wednesday, the president will so stress that moscow will keep the gas flowing through ukraine's transit. i plans a solicitation? yes. prom believes that it would be more profitable for it to pay a fine to ukraine and increase the gas volume pumping through the new systems. but there's no need for that. there's more pressure in the pipe, less c o 2 emissions into the atmosphere. everything turns out cheaper and at
2:06 am
$3000000000.00 a year. it is necessary to fully comply with the contractual obligations for the transitive gas through ukraine. although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange. but there is no need to bought anyone in a difficult position, including ukraine, despite the difficulties in relations. second, there's no need to undermine gas poms. confidence is an absolute, reliable partner in all respects. of europe, i see an energy costs spiraling and recent months, a right now the gas price is more than $5.00 times higher than it was at the start of the year. the crisis has been stoked by multiple factors including a wind power shortage on depleted gas reserves. and it's going to mean soaring household bills for millions of homes or some e, you politicians have pointed the finger at russia's gas, brom accusing it of manipulating the market to push through approval of the north stream to pipeline. although the outgoing chancellor, german chancellor, i should say, anglo merkel has defended moscow saying it's always stuck to its contractual
2:07 am
obligations to fog it is. i get this if you ask me whether there have been orders that russia has taken and then fail to fulfill as it stands. now, that is not the case. that is, there are no orders that frushell has said no will. they'll not deliver this to you and we're not pumping gas through the ukrainian pipeline. rather russia can only fulfill orders that have been contract it out. so the question is really, isn't being ordered, but i was autumn. impudence, pledge to boost gas supplies appears to have impacted the western media coverage on north stream to a concerns of moscow's alleged attempts to use oil and gas. alice leverage has lessened significantly at russia, wants it to be approved. but i don't think russia really doing anything wrong here . you know, europe has a supply crunch. russia has the gas to supply it. russia does instantly benefit from care for the market. they want high stable prices and they want to be seen as a reliable partner. some words soothing words,
2:08 am
i guess which we rarely get from mr. potent actually helped reverse that. 3540 percent jump over night in natural gas over in europe, gas, an element of, of russia playing politics. but there is also an element of a mom of money having been invested in noise being do not just on the russian side from the european side as well. maintaining trust on energy trade between russia and europe is a key focus of an international gas forum taking place right now in st. petersburg . though it is the last day of the gathering and corresponded idiot, a tranquil was that he just for a few moments he caught up with a c, e. o. of the european businesses association. in the end of pragmatism prevailed. it also showed that the interests of different stakeholders need to be taken into account. there is no sense in insisting on a, on one perspective and denying
2:09 am
a to the fact that others view a project differently. you need to sit together. so it also showed the need for international cooperation the, the fact that now the stalemate has been overcome and that we have avoided for a complete blockage of the project is actually very good news. as europe, as soon as association of european businesses, we've also always been very clear that we are against the application of sanctions, especially in an extra territorial perspective that we think this is a purely commercial project. and we also think that the european energy security, something that should be decided in europe natural gas has an actually tremendous role to play as a transition shoe. we are here talking now about the traditional fuel makes that we need to move away from and move to greener energy sources. but there is
2:10 am
also a way how we need to bridge this process between the status, that is the current status and, and future desires status. and while he struggles to keep the gas flowing, there's also a supply problem with the shortage of drivers across the continent who keep everything from petrol stations to supermarkets supplied world that had just a bit later in this program. samples the out here in moscow, the russian that foreign ministry has filed a counter request to the global chemical weapons watchdog. that's after the u. s. sun 44 other countries submitted a list of questions to the c w, demanding moscow. give details on last year's alleged poisoning of kremlin critic, alexey no, only. now we spoke with moscow's ambassador to the o. p. c. w. alexander shall gin. who says that russia's viewpoint is simply being ignored. ah status,
2:11 am
obscene is to. there's a feeling that something else ah, the goals are driving them judge for yourself to day. i was not allowed to speak for more than an hour. the pretext were different. for example, the absence of the bulgarian representative. he should have been reading the appeal of 45 countries. i asked the ambassadors of the united states, great britain to britney not want to hear the answer from russia. there was no desire to listen to us, apparently, of the goals being pursued. it is possible that this whole story is connected with the escalation of sanctions prussia in a dilemma. ah, we wanted to do a joint investigation. and what do you think the technical secretariat began to drag out the whole thing? one of the excuses was that they would know similar incidents from the u. k, all the u. s. were putting forward a counter request within the same framework and expect that france sweden and the technical secretariat will never less on the same questions that we asked earlier. we close this subject with a request from 45 countries and sent
2:12 am
a counter request. the bowl is on this side. in august, last year election of ali fell sick on a russian domestic flight. after an emergency landing in siberia, he was taken a hospital and put in an induced coma. he was later lifted to germany at the request of his family. a doctors in berlin sat in the valley had been exposed to the navic chalk, nerve agent, and ultimately blame the russian government. while the russian medics who treated of alan, he claimed that no poison of substances with attempted in his body. and after making a recovery, alexey novelty returned to moscow, where he was arrested and sentenced to 2 years in jail for breaking his parole conditions in a corruption case. now, the russian representative to the o. p. c. w alexander to show again again says western countries themselves also work with toxins, including that of nova chalk, a, some nato countries of working with substances, cold, navi chunk. i recall the statements of the check president who said in his country
2:13 am
there were laboratories where work is carried out with the substance called a 230, which can be attributed to navi chuck. the pretty sight admitted that in their potent down laboratory work was carried out with substances from the family of navi choke the united states is the only country that has not freed itself from chemical weapons. 140 peyton's have been developed there for the use of ammunition that contains chemical warfare agents, such as no v choke. cookie has joined algeria and lashing out of the french president, offer a manual macro suggested there was no algeria nation before. french colonial rule will ankara brandon microns words as a populist move ahead of next year's presidential election and france. turkey and algeria have joined a growing list of nations that are now at loggerheads with paris. a charlotte to pinsky explains. france isn't having the easiest of times it seems to be battling on multiple fronts internationally. and was that it's waging offer some
2:14 am
foibles take. i'll g uria frances form a colony it resisting president mack ones attempt to draw the line. and it has an ax to grind that didn't go down well and then to add insult to injury macklin blamed hatred towards france. young algerians on the political military system, which had rewritten, history based on lies even questioned. what is algeria was there in algeria nation before french colonization? that's the question. algeria post $962.00 is built on a memorial rent that declares france is the whole problem. hugh, i recall done baset debt, while algeria also plays it as space,
2:15 am
see the french military note colonial oppresses are naught to welcome the country essentially set this amnesia which pushes to process official relations with some of our countries into unfortunate crisis situation should result through unconditional mutual respect, that's not the only trouble facing france in africa. marley has a summons. the french ambassador for explanations it's furious that as fraud seeks to withdraw its troops. he can still think that he can hold the fort by sabre rattling, if you will need the left hand to button. the situation arising from the end of operation back on puts molly in a fait accompli of bundling ost mid flight to assist next. and it forces us to explore alternatives and means to better insure a security on the mostly or with other partners. and then there is this, oh my
2:16 am
t catastrophe. there was no way that we could have taken this decision without it having and causing date disappointment. and hurt to, to france with this, there's no way we could have avoided that if it wasn't bad enough that a stranger, a country which ranks a few more than several runs below france and military strength shocked it all for a rendezvous with the u. s. it also invited the briggs it buccaneers alone for the jolly, the french what dears, and found themselves crying out. which brings us to the u. k. my horn has often been compared to napoleon, but will he get caught in the nets?
2:17 am
of his very own waterloo, francis so incense over the u. k. refusal to let x fishermen troll they catch in british waters. it's even threatening to cut the country's electricity supply. actually, it would make more sense to just pass on the increasing costs of energy to the brits, making them pay double. but no macintosh government is forcing a battle of wills. who will though blink, 1st, all of this comes, as a friendship president, is set to face his stay 1st competition to date. as the presidential election hurtles closer, many at suggesting the only person whom blow a hole in makins hopes is well himself trans has lost his position for some time already. i would say since the end of a show to go as president trump has lost its position on the global stage, a trance has decided to follow the steps of the united states and nato. and we see
2:18 am
the catastrophe of that in an afghan ny rack. in x you a sawyer i, we see that francis totally lost it. macro is just living on the doors that france just to have. and now it's just finding out that this power, that france thought it had. he just doesn't have it. he's not the only one, he's just the one which is a he is the president which is exposing this to the, to the, to the public. that france is no longer the power. it used to think it was much more still to come here on this program. the european parliament votes to ban police use of facial recognition software and public places, calling it an historic moment. i'm on that and a few more of your friday stories went back just to me. a
2:19 am
join me every thursday on the alex simon, sure. and i'll be speaking to guess in the world politics sport, business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. ah ah, ah ah, ah, ah, with so i
2:20 am
ah ah. all right now 2020 part of the hour here at moscow. a european lawmakers are pushing for a ban on facial recognition systems used by the police. the ear parliament has passed a non binding resolution against a biometric surveillance which some m. e p is compared to that of cold war snooping . that's an important step in fighting against mass surveillance, the central and eastern europeans used to live under the eye of the big brother. and we don't want to come back with the resolution calls for a ban on funding or deploying programs that could result in indiscriminate mass surveillance document also emphasizes the importance of human supervision in any final decision making and urgent authorities to be more transparent by using open
2:21 am
source software that was all the 1st time nation. so taking a stand against excessive surveillance in 2019 san francisco became the 1st city in america to enact a complete ban on police, biometric surveillance, boston and minneapolis. then followed suit. and we followed the pros and cons of this, the whole issue of facial recognition with terrorism and security expert david low, but also with former u. s. police officer, dominic ego. there's a great saying and law enforcement that when you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail. and all this does, it may have the great grand scheme idea of what you're going after. some very serious offences like child sex trafficking. i'm missing persons or terrorist activity, but i don't care who says what it will always be used down to your lowest common denominator, which is your citizen, and it will be abused like crazy. you're then actively putting a tool in the police's hands to look for crimes proactively in the wrong way. i
2:22 am
think this is just, this is a door that's going to be open for some very abuse of authority. i don't think it's a good idea. and if you could put police in this mindset of that, everybody is a criminal. good news. we are being criminals and terrorists, a terrorist threat both in europe. i know north america since we'll have enough gummy. so if you did look out, i mean i'm talking about dealing serious organized crime. so trafficking, i'm not so much of dealing with cs trafficking, those type of fences in terrorism. and i think the point that was made, but you know, it's, it's only allowing, like counterterrorism agencies, policing agencies in the u. k will be national con, one. you know, it, agency, those things you wouldn't give it to the police force. it was like when we were in the european union, shang and information system which was a database that wasn't available. so every police force in the u. k. it was only to certain options and to pounds i just happens and all of them in the united states
2:23 am
were, were abuse. we just abuse. so if it was, if it was utilized and executed for what it was written up, work and a 100 percent, if it oversight was proper on it. and i think would be a great tool. i think that, but we just, we always take something that's, that's meant to be some way. and we just, we water it down and we abuse it. it's about giving who has access was a day to store and also destroying data with installments on it, or making sure those safeguards in place. and that's why i said, you need judicial scrutiny. what's to make it say that it doesn't go all the way down to again, the lowest common denominator, which is a citizen and a detective, or a st. cops shriek up as a bad day. and he wants to go through all the backlog of your activity for last 6 months and charge you for a crime that you committed 34 months ago. the british government is using the army to keep petrol stations supplied a bit of severe lack of truck drivers. it's a problem that's cause havoc throughout the supply chain and is not just limited to
2:24 am
the u. k. as europe emerges from lockdown said, nowadays, and estimated 400000 more heavy goods drivers, poland has the biggest shortfall in its relying on his neighbors to keep fuel and goods moving. while germany has at least 50000 dr. vacancies and we heard from yen kawloski who heads a transport company in berlin. he says truckers are severely undervalued and losing any incentive to get behind the wheel feeling, but even the number of drivers from eastern europe is declining. it is already obvious that many transport companies in central and eastern europe, which are very active here in germany, can no longer find drivers in eastern europe because no one wants to do the job. we need to be careful that this file does not continue, but finally stops. society should put more value on truck drivers. we all know how good it feels to sit on your sofa at home and order something online with next day delivery, preferably with free shipping. often you can't have it both ways. fallen prestige
2:25 am
for the job can be felt by the drivers, and many young people are asking why they should go into this profession with such a low social status. realtor spoke to a truck driver, jeffrey summers who thinks that wages should be increased to attract more people to the job. now before earth he in the salary is the most important thing. if it's not good, the know wants to do the job. why though, the reason is that training costs have risen, and independent drivers have to pay for it by themselves. i have a colleague who's training as cost him 12000 euros. the military used to train many drivers who could use their skills in a professional life or to that's not the case anymore. as, as well as the training. there are also poll working conditions, especially in law, whole transportation. my colleagues don't want to be away from home for weeks. these days you can end up spending 14 days away from home that many young people don't want to spend that long on the road here. lately we've seen lots of dr. is coming from outside the you,
2:26 am
they get paid between 40600 euros and only the daily allowance makes the job attractive enough to take it. now to solve this problem, i think this should be more regulation of the industry. for example, the minimum wage should be based on the drivers country of origin. this lot quite outward inspiring story from the middle east or the lives of 3 women have been saved by an historic series of kidney transplants between israel and the united arab emirates. it's a major boost for medical cooperation between the 2 nations which are established ties just over a year ago. ah ah, you say was it gone? oh, she told me that she wanted to lay to the mother, but that was no match. knew that we asked for, they discussed the dna and everything and book them in our portal, their eyes program and it was great. in one minutes we found

involved in this is the concept. see, firms? it is the lawyers, these people have got you want other stories at a walk kind of whistle blower. tell people's marriages have broken up and lost their family homes. it is spectacularly devastating for people's lives. we have committed suicide, but left behind norwich, the explicitly state that it was the constant intimidation and billing by buying coffee sauce that late them to i took the spear it's obscene. these people up nor saw the bike administration's decision to leave afghanistan was correct in long overdue. however, the way americans longest war ended is a different question. it was a botched affair. the generals will most likely never be held to account,
