i said basil makes dreams come true that every one who falls in love with people like mm good says of u k co with victims voice. their anger at the government are for parliamentary inquiry, find grave mistakes, lead to thousands of preventable deck. we've got a stop letting these born to rule a private school. people run things they don't understand. why is it that we allow prime minister in absolutely no common sense to run a serious plan then it german city, cologne, gives the green light to broadcasting muslim calls to prayer, to move, which is divided opinion there. i think this very great. it's wrong. i think
religion is something personal. it's nice for multiculturalism. i don't think it's about, but i don't think it's all that great either. and thousands of flights are cancelled by southwest airlines again, just days after pilots filed for an injunction to blog mandatory cove. it vaccines, the company's $56000.00 employees. ah. good morning from russia just to 11. i am here. this is out international. my name's kevin o in here are world news h q in moscow. a lot of covert stories to tell you about this morning. we'll start with one, in fact, a damning parliamentary inquiry claims. the u. k. government gravely mishandled its initial response to the kobe pandemic, saying thousands of deaths could have been prevented. the senior officials repeatedly avoided every opportunity to apologize. despite the anger of those who
lost loved ones, i got disgrace, they didn't listen and also they didn't think about the lives they thought about the money they for about the business contracts and they didn't close. the board is simply just letting people die, a 100000 people today and on. it's called corona virus lessons learned today and it finds that number 10, delaying the locked down back in march of the 23rd and 2020 was one of the most important public failures in the history of the united kingdom was still the government's handling of the pandemic actually led to 20000 unnecessary deaths, but a capital minister unfortunately was unable to refuse even try and apologize for those claims. came to start when apology thought i would have thought, well, no, we followed the scientific advice we. we followed the scientific advice we protected the n h s. we took the decisions based on the evidence before. but of
course we've always had with something so unprecedented as the pandemic there will be lessons to learn. so it's still a very gracious look there from stephen box cabinet office minister, who actually ends up very into the refuse to apologize some 11 times. but looking deeper into this reporting question, it's quite hefty. it's 150 pages long and almost a year ago to date was when it was 1st established. when this inquiry really began . now they looked at many key areas, including the preparedness for pandemic, social distance thing. social can impact on sets and communities. plus, of course, the vaccines as well. well, it's an incredibly traumatic and triggering day for many, for instance, my best friend who lost her mother during the pandemic to cove it and she's incredibly furious. the government for its handling of the pandemic was she's certainly not to learn this thousands of brute families up and down the country,
finding this report a very difficult read indeed. so i lost my grandfather and his best friend is when the next day. so my family have really had a chance from it, but this, this isn't a personal and you know, some kind of emotional trauma. however, the government want to go around. 3 you know, treating pandemic in the future. i think this is a big society wake up. we've got stall letting these on to rule, straight out a private school. people run things. they don't understand. why is it that we allow prime minister, we're not really no common sense to run serious and then it absolutely. everything is down to them. and when you look at the very beginning, there's from them as well. i've heard immunity. now we're not where the bees on the plane, it's not right to let the se in the old fall behind. and if that's the kind of
shoot the government entered with, we cannot be surprised that so many of die. it just stands to reason that this is exactly what they expected and they really don't. now, a whole barrage of a criticisms really came out in this report noting very quite big concerns, including access to p. p. the government's much how track and tre system, which fundamentally was flawed. also suggesting at the start of the pandemic bar, as johnson said that the care homes would not be affected. now we know, in hindsight, they were actually the was effected. but the key finding really dates back to some 20 months ago, that key date of march, the 23rd, when the united kingdom entered it 1st locked down. well, this report says, scientists were talking some 2 months prior to that about how ready the u. k. was in terms of dealing with upon demick of this scale,
and actually all keys for the government acted far too slow. it is now clear that this was the wrong policy and that it led to a higher initial death told them would have resulted from the more in fasick early policy. in a pandemic spreading rapidly, an exponentially every week counted. while forest johnson, the prime minister and his government have always maintained throughout this pandemic, the policy is guided by the day to the science and always maintains that it just simply put policy into place by the evidence that was presented to it. it also says it's sticking by its promise of allowing a public inquiry into the con demik. i'm the government handling of it as well, but that won't come until at least next spring. just to say though, that this a very report it's aim is not to point the thing, those of blame, that is a quote within this report. but some already say there is only one direction of blame to point the finger and that is squarely the government. so i've been saying
the last couple of years with my group number government and absolutely terrible job. and this is what happens when you have leaders in charge of nursing society. they don't know what they're doing, that they didn't follow the science. they didn't listen to the experts and they didn't listen to other countries. that warner, someone like, boris johnson is prime example of what is wrong in british politics. and i to still, if nobody stands up to point out that this is dennis side, it's just something that someone has to stand and say, because like i say in our, in our culture, so many people will just take it on the chin night. i think that taking on a chin is not something that this, you know, unprecedented situation deserves back to some of the code for a bit. but this most muslim calls to prayer are going to be heard across cologne. and germany of to local authorities gave their approval for them to be broadcast over loud speakers. on friday afternoons to the official said the moves a gesture of respect. closed central mosque has been
a flash point for anti muslim sentiments before, but the mares defended the decision. now. cologne is the city of religious freedom and diversity. those who arrive at the main train station are greeted by the cathedral and accompanied by church bells, many clone residents amused lamps allowing them. whereas in cool, is from a sign of respect. or 35 mosques in western cologne will be able to play the call for up to 5 minutes. the initiative comes as part of an agreement between cologne officials of the muslim community mosque seeking the broadcast. it will there have to comply with limits on the volume and also notify neighbors in advance. some locals we heard from there are divided about the decision in the thanks can say, i think that's great because the muslim community is also include as this is also very nice for the muslims, just as the churches ring about the most can also make the call to prayer, i think this very great. all fallen thus, sir, sir?
oh, it's nice for multiculturalism. germany says we are here and we also take care of muslims, which unfortunately some political parties don't do any more. it makes me happy when i hear it. it's a piece of home that's less fantastically slim. i don't think it's bad, but i don't think it's all that great. either. i live directly opposite, so i hear it all the time. the fact that you now have to listen to what is being said, whether you want to hear it or not. i don't think it's the best thing. oh, well that's if it is false. i think it's wrong. i think religion is something personal. you don't have to bar all the people around with it when they call out and foreign language. i think that's really bad because then the people don't know what they're actually saying. it many sided day pay show. so therefore, it's where the bit of a debate is that this fear of us not only in cologne, is not only in germany, it is everywhere, unfortunately, in the name of their hijacking their base by jerking their religion of
a song and misusing it for their own cause so this leads to basically to, to lack of trust. he's lamb is not the majority in germany. this depending on which city last that still 90 percent of non muslim muslims are part of this country in this society. so as other religious groups are represented in the same way more than should also be able to be referred to represent cologne. may miss andrea, who just are beat, who just delivered in a city who's asked boat in front of his land, bowed down and welcome this demand introduce. what phase amanda? without asking the people that loan officer doing anything. it's nothing new away because it's basically what the constitution, se, se i think, and if the relationship to the muslim community in cologne in the last place
is good. and then harmony can be there. you know, allow a, bab, has a certain history does not just alive greater, but it became n b because of the g had so it has a very negative history. this cause has a history of violence. you see the call of pears, not something like some magical saying or some magic. you know, we don't need it anymore. you muslims have watches now amended call of the worst thing comes from the 7th century. then people didn't have to watch it. basically, a tradition in islam where you praise the lord, praise a law, praise god, and you basically call people to the prayer under the shadow european power supply crisis at the moment. russian energy week is getting underway today. it's one of the biggest annual forms of it's kind of a place where various industries can thrash out hot button, topics like international cooperation. let's go to try and get caught up with the last area is again over the event for it's really critical time. the energy sector
is hussein last time and also lot of people thinking green and i was talking to merged together. what do you got for us this out with kevin. hi again. well, it is definitely the crucial time for the energy sector and this kind of event for perhaps the timing 10. i'll be better because winter's coming in the cold season is just around the corner and we are hot on the heels of something that the some have a true energy crisis in europe. does that have to do with green policies or doesn't it right now? i'm going to find out from someone who is responsible for a project called the green initiative, or nest for lang who is also the chairman of the energy committee at the association of european business. and i still hello and welcome. it's great to talk to you morning everyone. so when it comes to the many green initiatives that
are being worked on in the european union, some focus on environmental programs and the desire by some of the countries, the governments and the players in the you to be more green than others. how does that affect the relations with russia? well, that process on transformation has been started. let's see 30 years ago. i mean, we introduced you in europe a phone 238520058 new a t s. a mission pregnancy suggestion. very important issue in order to monitoring the level of emission of course, huge amount of investments. this, if you consider the overall amount the need of the world level in order to reach the curve on the truck in place to fix these more than 4 trillion doors on the basis. can we make a lot of money? of course, europe and russia are linked by a strong historical trade relation in the energy export of oil and gas,
which cover, by the way, more than 40 percent of the federal russian budgets. it's very important. they supplier of gas and almost always stable. so we are happy in europe that we'd get the opportunity to receive that we, that's incredibly the way it moves in order to increase the level of social economical growth. that's very important. of course, the projects change in europe to renewables is coming up a level of acquisition of buying oil and gas will be the reason it leads, especially oil and cold. and so we have to, for seen some potential change in terms of trade. the change of energy. so these, of course will impact on the relations with russia. that's very important, but it's not the force of will not happen very quickly. this transition would happen at nice time. nothing happened very short. if you see on the market that you mation price of the guy has been incredibly wrap up, simply because you cannot decrease the level investment in the expiration and the
expiration and production activity otherwise, demands that are coming under under a situation. if you don't have stable supply, of course the price increases. so when it comes to the unprecedented spikes and prices that we've just seen, i'm sure you've spoken to many experts here. and before that, everything that happened in europe, everything that happened on the market could that affect that vision and any of the plans that you and the other experts have had so far? you know, i don't think so. of course that the people are thinking about the social aspect and the economy and the pressure coming from the industry. they need that cheap in this cheap energy. that's for sure. but will not joe part of that is the process of under the green structure. i mean, the level of commitment from the european union we are talking about in 7 years, more than 500 pound 1000000000 year of investment. huge amount of investment has
been done. there is no change or strategy. of course. everything has be considered under the new reality of the world. so china far is increasing the amount of energy . what's happening around the renewables renewals is not the solution for forever. is one of the part of the energy mix, of course, but cannot be substituted under 100 percent by different different kinds of energy . so the supplier. so strong relation with europe and europe is needed. also think about hydrogen, future hydrogen in the role that happens will place is very important to take into account technology that we say 40 percent of nathan technology needed to reach the 25th. the net neutrality is not exist anymore is not exist now. has to be find out, has been edited under the huge invest mean there are in the recession. development is the last from of potential cooperation between europe and russia. extremely. busy interesting localisation process that we can do on the corporation between
european company or russian one, how far behind is russia in its green, ambitious, and it's environmental strategy. and when it comes to the green ambitions, do you, are there any jeremy versus do very good job by the way, during the last years they approve of many different what i mean 20232025 will be for the 1st time they serve russia, there will be a law which foreseen on the voluntary basis, the level of emission that's very important there too recently a few weeks ago, the taxonomy. so in order to understand how much a green project can be recognized as it is and the level of investment and under the age g culture. so this and project, which is one of the examples corporation between the russian stakeholders and farina and european companies very important, i see on the technology we said on the financial sector. and that's very looking for the corporation will district and that direction. what is the number one
ingredient in your recipe to make sure that the turbulence in the markets that we've seen in the past week weeks doesn't come back. i mean, by continuing to keeping their relation with the rush is very important. different potential supplier, we have from the know that we have russia traditionally we said very strong potential partner. and as usual, easter is saying strong supplier for energy in europe. so nothing change or reality . we have to end the day if i had the potential area of operation rush, that's very important. and so i don't see any kind of specific let me say travels in only to understand how to implement the project together between europe and russia on that green initiative. no sanction. we are willing, and our company's european one is willing to cooperate with the russian companies. 2050. it looks beautiful. i mean, it's an even number. is it just because the number looks so great, or is that objective realistic?
i mean, strong comically you are right saying that is very strong commitment taken by the without money cheap and long money, the industry, we're not able to do that. a lot of money, as we said, for to really on doors needed on the yearly basis. i mean, stakeholders pressure coming from the different investor from the financial system is increasing. so we have to do that to 2050 is a commitment take to buy many of them. so various agreement signed by the way russian federation at university and the business. we have to create the new talented people, the young generation commitment involved in the process or less. so i appreciate your insights. kevin, just to remind you, i just been joined by ernest over leggett who was the chairman of the energy committee at the association of european business. and we've been talking about european green initiatives and how that fits european cooperation with russia.
kevin, back to you, and of course, i'll be coming back with more guests from the washing energy week. 20. 21. fabulous, busy the noise in the background. a lot of talking going on. looks like it's a good production of good ideas going on to fab. come by later no vaccine rollouts being blamed for a disruption to air traffic in the us again today. one big airline counseling almost a 100 flights tuesday, adding to the thousands it grunted in previous days. southwest blaming the weather . others point to staff shortages though, after it implemented vaccine mandates for all 56000 employees. caleb open reports chaos and airports across the country as flights from a major us airline. southwest airlines have been cancelled. now this comes shortly after a move by the southwest airlines pilot association, the labor union that represents over $10000.00 pilots, that southwest airlines filed for a temporary block on
a move to mandate vaccinations, federally mandated corona virus vaccinations. now they have filed a lawsuit against those mandatory vaccinations and they are asking for a block on the vaccinations until this lawsuit regarding us labor laws and how it applies to these vaccinations can be resolved. now the union was quick to step up and say that they were not responsible for the cancellation of these slides. this was not a strike. this is what they had to say southwest by point to their how they manage the network, how their i t also supports that network. but once a little hiccup occurs, due to the internal processes, our pilots are getting to where they need to be. we've been sounding this alarm for about 4 years and they've seen very little approach to correcting it's. southwest airlines came forward and said that it was not a bad decision from the management as the union alleged. it was rather weather
conditions that cause the cancellation of thousands of flights. now, many conservative and republican voices have spoken up and given a pretty strong view of how they see the situation, jo biden's, illegal vaccine, mandated work, suddenly was short on pilots in their traffic controllers. i stand with southwest airlines, employees who are fighting against these mandates. this isn't about vaccine. this is about freedom. why is the weather only disrupting southwest? now at this point, it seems the issue is close to being resolved, that people are looking at the current flight schedules and expecting that things will return to normal. but questions remain about what caused the panic and cancellation of thousands of flights elsewhere. new york health work is temporarily been allowed to avoid mandatory vaccination after against coven. 19 for a federal judge has extended an order for them to apply for religious exemptions. the series of protests against compulsory, no collections, to contribute to nickel house next,
reporting from their. oh, we're outside of thurgood marshall court house, where cambridge, the blasio was being held. michael kane is fighting for another injunction for all the teachers of new york was specifically himself in 10 plaintiffs who were denied the continuation of their restraining order last week. and another court case, mother came said he is optimistic that the judge will hopefully uphold justice to day. he said that the fight won't stop here and that he still has to prepare for what may come in the future. now people like michael caine said that they're unsure of how their family will proceed. our case is 10 plaintiffs who lost their jobs at this point are the majority of us are on unpaid leave because we would not get the cov id vaccine. and the majority of us also filed for exemptions, medical exemptions, religious exemptions, and the majority of us were denied those exemptions. we believe that the exemption process was fraudulent was a legal and unconstitutional
a lot of teachers and health care workers who said the same thing. harvey said that this is a hill we're dying on that every now and then you just have to take a stand. these protests are not something has only been happening today. but every day that i've been here, there has been a protest around the city. and it said, this isn't going to stop any time soon until these mandates in. and what i'm finding here as a left is organized, or is, it's almost kind of like a tower of babel culturally. because there are christians, there are transfers, there are republicans, there are left dest, you left the last year, people in just waking up, many more teachers in health workers are coming in, and even we think we're going to be getting police firemen. i think there's something important to note here. if you look around the crowd here, this doesn't look a bunch of conservative way guys slept. we've been told by the mainstream media. there are people from, like i said earlier, several different walks of life, black, white, asian, everything. and so there seems to be a lisa,
misinterpretation if we're being charitable of the narrative, according to the mainstream media, we're waiting to hear, wow, the results of this injunction. it could come today. however, it could take until thursday to come through. but when michael can't comes out, we'll go ahead and ask him how he feels the injunction were proceed going for the children right now in new york are suffering and you see it and reports that are breaking all over the place. people from central, who haven't been with children ever, are now power professionals that are working with disabled children as if anybody can come in and fill these shoes. i know i have not been replaced at my job. i'm a special educator and they are children not receiving their services right now because while a footnote, some facts for you 1st around 92 percent of the state's health care workers have received at least one covert job that makes it one of the highest rates in the country, the states government backs, the measures saying is vital for combating the spread of the delta vary ton. keeping new york is safe companies from here. russia's daily corona,
virus infections, and deaths are hovering near all time highs. we can report with moscow maybe not surprisingly, being the most affected region. so in a bid to try to curve the spread and the capital authorities of launched free testing in 20 centers, including one of the city's largest shopping malls from wed dmitri polk reports. we're here in the heart of russia's capital in moscow, on the red square in the gloom department store. for a while, it's been a place where people could get vaccinated, but now it is also one of the 20 centers that gets out free. express, coven tests. these centers are being opened up as cases in russia continue to search in just the last few days. the number of new daily cases across the country has climbed to almost 30000 figures as high as last winter with most of them being in moscow. however, many medical experts think that this is actually reaching the peak and that these numbers is rising numbers in cases are actually due to more tests being readily and
easily available. and that's kind of why the also thing that this could be signaling an end to the search. because the more tests, the more cases are confirm, the more people are treated and less people get in fact it. well, this is the actual test site in the room where people have been steadily flowing in throughout the day to get their free express tests. all they need to show is their passport or a child's birth certificate. meet doctor andre lashley go. he's overseeing this test site and is responsible for making sure everything goes smoothly and the necessary steps are taken in case of a positive result. experienced this year, this express task allows you to discover if a patient has potentially infected within 15 minutes or less, it's your other guys go to sit on it so quick. how reliable is it or the i so we, it's a special analysis that allows you to get results in a short time and it's reliability is very high. nobody answers that, but if the result is positive, will another test occur?
rhythm business law of no, of course, from the express test results, we tentatively assume a patient is infected. therefore, all of those who test positive are additionally tested via the p. c. our method. and after receiving the final results, we make a decision regarding treatment, or we decide to stop the self isolation which the patient and is to until the results are obtained well, time and take the test. hopefully no surprises and that's it. now i just got to wait 15 minutes and the results should be in well find, find out by test results. monday with less, uva my case or things simple. i'm healthy. i can carry on with my dear life now worrying about infecting anybody. so that's the test process, free, easy,
and reliable medical experts hope that this approach will lead to much more test being done, which will lead to earlier detection and better treatment of the virus. and eventually that should result in a zip on the recent surge of cases across russia is the theory will keep you posted on it now that so we talked about so far on next program. so you'll part of the will coming up shortly after break. my name is kevin. oh, it for me in the team have a good day. ah, what happened to the idea of tolerance in our politics? conservative. see their world being up ended. liberals view conservatives with contempt. of course, the media only makes things worse. we all lost hope and compromise in peaceful coexistence with
