2:00 pm
what is that still the same? i was giving you cisco of logo slippery music. continue to one wonderful, scared little squiggly. john thought of it, but our one was doing pretty good us them. yeah. on a desert and we still live down . oh, president putin says europe's own miscalculations resulted in its current energy crisis, confronting head on the narrative, the brush of his weapon ising, all intentionally withholding gas. jim and city of cologne gives the green light to broadcasting the muslim coal to prep a move, which is very much divided opinion that i think this very great is wrong. i think religion is something personal. it's nice for multiculturalism. i don't think it's bad, but i don't think it's all that great either. and american taxpayers still paying
2:01 pm
for the infamous border bold project despite job biden's pledge to stop it. costs for storing millions of dollars worth of rusting steel mount up. ah . oh good. happy with his life from moscow. this is alta international, well des, at 9 with me calling bright 1st and speaking at the russian energy week. international forum president putin has waited on the gas price hike in europe. feel that tough questions, dispelling what he called false narratives. of moscow strategy on the global energy market because it's a seattle about as far as north stream to was concerned. what opponents of the project have claimed that this is not a commercially viable product and rushes pursuing geopolitical motivations. well, you know, this is yet another piece of nonsense. just please pay closer attention to what i'm saying. this route is 2000 kilometers,
2:02 pm
shorter and quicker to our main consumers in europe than via ukraine. easy. 2000 kilometers more efficient. it's cheaper because transit is cheaper and it's also cheaper for customers because the transit fee has to be included in the end price in particular for european customers. we are doing this despite our political differences. this year we have increased supply by 10 percent. again, we would very much like them to be grateful. instead of only criticizing us more. no, so only for tankers amana russian energy, we can, across all the days, major statements for us, or a better understanding. i just want to give you an insight into the context of mr. putin's latest remarks at the, the russian energy week 2021. so the a post cove, it powered, the man globally has been on the up. and this really led to major changes in the supply chains, had led to destroy disruptions. and this in turn led to shortages of
2:03 pm
supplies in europe. in particular, the prices for natural gas at one point skyrocketed to unprecedented levels and death that many analysts indeed call this a true global energy crisis. but in that times, specifically russia by some has even been blamed for politicizing the matter. and before that for years, moscow has been under fire for some of its infrastructure projects like gas, the nord stream, to in particular for direct natural gas deliveries from russia to the northern coast of germany. and like i've been hearing from many experts here on day one of russia's energy we got there has been reassessment. and reassessment is also something that mister putin has been talking about. he also spoke about what he
2:04 pm
called mistakes on the part of a some of brushes partners when it comes to their energy policies. so let's have a look at what else the russian leader said about that austin nuggets for you. looked at higher prices on gas in europe are a consequence of a deficit of energy and not vice versa. and that's why you should not shift the blame from over the last 10 years. step by step gl systematic flaws were introduced into the european energy system, and they lead to a massive energy crisis unit for any market. stability and predictability are important, and russia flawlessly fulfills its contract will obligations to our partner, including our partners in europe, that we, in short guaranteed uninterrupted gas deliveries to your health. we have every reason to believe that this year we will reach record levels of gas deliveries. on the global market and you to and what exactly could help europe in this particular situation? what kinda make sure that the prices go down. well, perhaps the answer is obvious. that is,
2:05 pm
extra supplies to the continent. and what mister putin, as said during that panel discussion was that when never russia was requested for a boost in exports. the answer from moscow, the answer from gas from russia's gas, that was always, yes. so russia never said no. and when mister proven was asked a direct question whether moscow was ever using energy as a political weapon, the answer was straightforward. the answer was no. i want to ask you about it directly. has russia been using energy as a weapon? russia is not using any weapon, if you've been paying attention, as for the economy, where are we using weapons and what conflicts are we taking part and for the economy? this is not something we tend to use. this is what i call a politically motivated talk. if there's nothing to support it when it comes to saying that we use energy as some kind of webinar at the end of the day, i guess the question is, how can you expect europe to believe you're a reliable energy partner when you're not supplying that energy via the pipeline
2:06 pm
or she was if you're a beautiful woman, like what i'm saying, one thing to you and you're saying a different thing to me as if you haven't heard what i said. well, mister president, with what was the same point which you logged in, you said that you're not supplying gas through pipelines to europe, but actually you are mistaken. you are mistaken. and all of those who feed on the information they receive, we are actually increasing our supplies to europe. gas price increased supplies by 10 percent, and overall russia increase them by 15 percent. we have increased gas supply through pipelines by 10 percent and increased l. n g supply by 13 percent, we are increasing and it will not decreasing our gas supplied to europe. this brings me to the key ingredient of the stability on the market from watermark pohden. this is, according to the russian leader, long term contracts for the exports of commodities when the prices for natural gas
2:07 pm
in particular are linked with one prices. now this also brings me to something that's been a cause for concern among european politicians. that is russia sticking to the transit, its natural gas supplies to europe, through ukraine, beyond 2024. this is what europe once to that watermark and says, well, what we need is contracts long term contracts to understand how much gas europe needs in the future. and then, and in that case, we can then decide how much gas goes through the turkish stream. that's what the pipeline through the black sea is called, how much gas we can send through our north stream pipeline and to ukraine as well. but mr. poodles, general answer to that was, yes, washer is ready to maintain its ukrainian transit. besides this, mr. who went on to talk about something that doesn't really have to do with energy
2:08 pm
. but this is something that the moderator asked, the russian leader that was about russians relations with washington and about arms security. mister boot said that russia is ready to talk with washington ready for talks with washington on the revival of possibly some of the older treaties that washington abandoned under donald trump, under the previous seat as well. war release to hammer out new agreements, which is very important for international security is stability. but mister, put this message has been the same all the time. we have only been responding to that whenever you were getting rid of the st. these whenever you are leaving and out when it comes to the arms race, in fact, mister prudent admitted there was an arms race between the u. s. in russia. at this
2:09 pm
point, russia is only taking measures in response. so like i said, this was the number one message from the russian. the the muslim call to prayer will be heard across cologne, in germany after local authorities scathe their approval for it to be broadcast over loud speakers. officials say the move is a gesture of respect, but many citizens stresses such a move is at odds with european culture norms or colognes at central mosque, which is germany's largest has been a flash point fronting muslim sentiment before with the mass strongly defending this week's decision 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 call is for me, a sign of respect of $35.00 mosques, and the city will be able to play the coal for up to 5 minutes. the initiative comes as part of an agreement between cologne officials and the muslim community
2:10 pm
and mosques seeking to broadcast it will have to comply with volume limits and notified neighbors in advance. we got reaction to the decision in the thanks can can say, i think that's great because the muslim community is also included. this is also very nice for the muslims, just as the churches ring a bell, the mosques can also make the call to prayer. i think this very great all fallen thus as so, oh, it's nice of multiculturalism. germany says we are here and we also take care of muslims, which unfortunately some political parties don't do any more that it makes me happy when i hear it. it's a piece of home versus felicity 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
2:11 pm
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. we heard from one a mom who says it's a positive move because muslims are now an integral part of german society. i think it's a good initiatives, basically highlighting the rights which are sounded in the constitution itself. listeners are, are part of this country in this society. and if they are part of the society, then it's a matter of representation of every single citizen. so also as other religious groups are represented in germany. the same way more than should also be there is a fear in regards to song and, you know, we, as muslim, we have to do our part on a to basically reduce this year. however, there are other voices, the believe germany has its own identity,
2:12 pm
but you need to be protected. is one these is not the majority in germany. this depending on which city lab between one or 2 percent, after maybe 5 percent in some big cities, 10 percent that still 90 percent of non muslims. we have a certain condition and it's identity. and if you, if you see the skyline up cologne, how it is for the last 2 centuries, the cathedral is a dominant factor. so it's tom said, the entity of cologne, every tradition in cologne. every believe in cologne. ever. you go, you'll find symbols of the christian identity. so to give away o identity, it's not carlo runs, it's not religious tolerance, religious tolerance is to allow these landed community to pray and that must have it. but they should not dominate the sounds of the city of cologne. they should not, and now ins for everybody to hear, but their law is greater than our christian god. next,
2:13 pm
despite job biden's promise not to waste a single sense of american taxpayers money on board from so my group fence project, it's been discovered that $100000000.00 worth of steel has been left to ross on the us mexican border. kellum open takes up a story. now let's be clear, the money has already been spent. the american taxpayers already purchased these the old columns on order from donald trump. but now biden is president and taxpayer money does continue to be spent, but not on building a wall that we're paying contractors for a while. was almost 5000000 a day between d o d and d h s to not to not build the border wall there, stacks and stacks of border wall panels. there has been a lot of talk about the cost of building donald trump wall along the border. but it turns out that the cost of not building the wall is also rather pricing the cost of
2:14 pm
the biden administration's efforts to suspend or terminate donald trump's trademark construction project had been tallied up to roughly one point $8.00 to $2000000000.00. the last contract was ripped up last week. now remember when biden promised that he wouldn't waste any more money on trump's wall, which will be the policy of my administration that no more american taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct the board wall. and that i am directing a careful reviewable resources appropriated all redirected to that. and well, biden's rhetoric doesn't account for the cost of letting all kinds of building materials go to waste. texans are not particularly thrilled with biden's decision, especially since the problem is along the border and only intensified. i think the money should be finished building the all the materials needed to be done with a long time ago. it's not their money. it's our money. the tax payers we bought
2:15 pm
it, i figure that to go ahead and utilize material, go to their bins, the border wall, stop the flow, legal and the resume that we needed to i the ministry, sir. when is the warrant? always the money there. i used to live on the border of mexico and macallan for 8 years. like what they should do is finish the job. of the border is about to be breached. so while americans are stuck with the bill for rotting steel, the country's ongoing financial woes and rising national debt are only getting worse, meaning there's plenty of places this money could have been better spent left wing radical democrats don't understand the phrase, waste of money to them money is infinite, it comes from nowhere,
2:16 pm
it grows on trees and they take and spend as much as they want, as long as it gives them power and control. the wall is more necessary than ever if you care about legitimate versus illegitimate emigration. if you're not trying to patch the united states of america full of illegal immigrants with no love for the country, no understanding of the founding of the constitution of the way politics works here . and the plan is to fill up the country with them and then complain that it's racist not to give them citizenship. and so the right wing will fold politically and give it to them in the next thing. you know, all these millions of immigrants will suddenly be voting at which point. democrats will win every national election ally for you and other. well, a white guys got into orbit, but you're like this one though. the original captain cook from star trek has made it into space for real. it means that acts of william shatner, whose 90 is the oldest person to reach for the stars boldly coming about 100
2:17 pm
kilometers above the west texas desert in a blue already space. bay me up. indeed, you can see that story now and more at r t dot com still had right here moscow's open, free coven testing sites throughout the city, in response that draft spike in new cases here. one of our correspondence is among those getting checked out again, it's one of our stories cilla head after the break for is your media reflection of reality in the world transformed what will make you feel safe for ice? elation for community. are you going the right way? where are you being that somewhere? direct. what is true? what is great?
2:18 pm
in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. join me every thursday on the alex, simon, sure. but i'll be speaking to guess in the world of politics, sport, business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. ah no. again, no new polls show the jo biden's approval ratings are continuing to tumble with
2:19 pm
even his supporters now expressing deepening concern. his writings had already sunk by more than 10 percentage points from july to september with a particular concern being his tumbling backing among key democratic constituencies, including women, the young and people of color. that speaking specifically about black people, you know, the day that it was determined that he indeed did when the presidency and he came out to speak to his supporters in delaware. it was a big, it was big hoopla, there were fireworks on president biden. and then president elect biden looked into the camera and said to the world, black people have always had my back and i will always have yours. i don't think black people are feeling it right now. but biden's administration and the president himself for playing down the importance of the polls and the trying to pin the blame on the pandemic. well, look, i would say that this is
2:20 pm
a really tough time in our country. we're still battling coded, and a lot of people thought we be through it again on this. include my shit, i this is a process and it's going to be up and down. that's where i don't look at the polls . not a jo. well, antony wrote his right he had from early, i believe the real problem is biden's failure to tackle issues that a key to america. we have seen a disproportionate amount of cold deaths attributed to black people. i'm an assault on voting rights, the voting rights that are allowed, our president bite him to get into power and we're not seeing enough from the president or, nor his justice department. i just don't think that a black people are going to accept that, that, that paradigm anymore. and they are expressing their chagrin with his president, with this administration for on it's lack of action on the issues that are really impacting black people to this day, including lack of economic opportunity,
2:21 pm
lack of educational opportunities, being disproportionately exposed to the climate crisis, police violence. so, so many other education and wild gap, so many other things. and i'm the expect results friends. popular press is taking aim at one of its own half to claims the kremlin spies stole the formula for russia . sputnik vaccine from the u. k. the story and the some was widely picked up by other outlets, but now we're at least one rival newspaper has retracted its article and apologized to come to our attention that this was fulls of the information about the events of the sputnik v. vaccine gambling, national research sense of epidemiology and microbiology is publicly known. the article also contains false information. as an apology, we are happy to set the record straight and publish the following statement from the russian direct investment fund. with sun branded its report as an exclusive saying, an anonymous british government source had proof. the data for the russian cove and jap was pinched by moscow's foreign agent in person,
2:22 pm
or the credit and spokesperson has responded to it all by describing the paper as being famous fritz, deeply on scientific articles, developers of sputnik v say they used the same scientific method they'd applied in earlier research to quickly make the vaccine against covey, 90 the 1st to be registered in the world. a russian scientists are now working on joint clinical trials with astrazeneca on a combination of the 2 vaccines. meanwhile, the british security minister, when question on the validity of the son's report, was hesitant to back the papers claims. i'm count comments won't comment on the specific case, but it would be fair to say correct to say that we face threats of this type that are different. they're more sophisticated, they're more extensive than they ever have been before. a journalist and former newspaper editor lou grieve a says he's not surprised the british de lisa turning on each other. and it's their unrelenting attacks on moscow, which is the real issue. while competition and the british press is terrible. yeah
2:23 pm
. so especially for, for categories like that, so no wonder that they are trying to show that the other one is not right. especially in this case that's so a clear face use you know, you say the king is dead while the king is to the light. so that's a typical fake use, you know, we said tabloid for which shot the scandalous the info. oh, scandal sells paper. and also of course on the internet. and they don't really care about the truth. so then use and so even if it's so wrong, well, russia is usually bad. so why not say one more time? you know, that sort of form stupid argument that could be in their mind. in the western press, simon jung was thin in the west and in the western press, it's own not one time. it is repeatable, it's every day. it is detailed news. big news always russia is wrong. it's the message. this is fake news, giving only one part of the story,
2:24 pm
and they are so good at that in the european press. on russia's daily corona, virus infection and death rates to hovering near all time highs with numbers in some regions, almost doubling in the past month. when a bit to try and curb the spread some regions of imposed compulsory vaccination for certain categories of workers as well as q r passes for venues. moscow, the most affected region has now launched a free testing in 20 centers, including in the city's largest shopping mold. dmitri power reports from one of them. 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 for people to get vaccinated, but now it is also one of the 20 centers that gets out free express kelvin test. 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 injury, his climb to almost 30000 figures as high as last winter with most of them being in
2:25 pm
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 infected. 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 co. he's overseeing this test site and is responsible for making sure everything goes smoothly, and that 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 guy's chorister, though it's so quick. how reliable is it ever so we, it's
2:26 pm
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 low of enough, 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 ideas to until the results are obtained well time and take the test. hopefully no surprises. mm hm. and that's it. now it is got to wait 15 minutes and the results should be in well find, find out by results limit wasn't sufficient with less uba. in my case,
2:27 pm
all are 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 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 over the recent surge of cases across russia. let's hope so. if i, wherever you are, stay safe, get tested and look after each other that she needs for. now i'm calling bray back with you next updated around 33 minute season. ah . oh, driven by dreamer shapes bankers are those with
2:28 pm
who dares sinks? we dare to ask oh well it shows the wrong one. i just don't know. i mean you world? yes, to say proud disdain becomes the advocate an engagement. it was betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah,
