4:01 am
it really wasn't. former british or spy, christopher steel brakes cover 5 years off to his ball, michelle dossier on alleged trumpet, russia collusion which he now admits was not 100 percent awe today, worldwide news headlines live from moscow. this is our t international welcome to your school. so posing a threat to the unions future, that's the accusation. the polish prime minister has a leveled against e. you institutions. mateusz motor viet ski issued an angry warning in a letter to brussels, which he followed up with a speech to the european parliament. unfortunately, to day we are dealing with a very dangerous phenomenon where by various european union institutions usurped powers, they do not have under the treaties and impose their will on member states. poland
4:02 am
set for this huge show down with the u. this is tensions that have been building up for years now between the country and the new institutions, but they really had a fire little under them. recently, this is after poland, top court issued a ruling saying that the country's own constitution had primacy over some you laws . as infuriated, the top brass at brussels in any piece themselves will be debating this subject later today. now they're so angry what they demanded the european commission did, is hit the button on new powers that would allow the commission to withhold funding to poland funding with billions and billions, upon billions of euro's and lessing, those powers shouldn't just be used against poland. they should be used against countries like hungry too, because any peas accused these 2 countries of undermining their own democracies. but the polish prime minister, who's also due to speak on tuesday as hit back out saying that it's the new itself
4:03 am
. that is an democratic, we ought to be anxious about the gradual transformation of the union into an entity that would cease to be an alliance of free, equal and sovereign states, and instead become a single, centrally managed organism when by institutions deprived of democratic control by the citizens of european countries, the polish prime ministers, also warned that you need to change. it weighs because it faces so many potential crises. he talked about possible financial crisis, which he suggested because i the weakened or undermine the euro to the point that it could collapse. and of course, there is this ongoing energy crisis in europe. now. poland, getting support from other quarters to including the outgoing german chancellor. this is anglo merkel. she said those demands by any piece to withhold those funds are actually quite saddening. and what she said needs to happen here is more high level discussion. and if in the 5th and i think it is now time to talk in that with the polish government about how we can overcome these difficulties. we have big
4:04 am
problems, but my advice is to sell them and talks to find compromises. now this fall out between poland and the e. u. i. it has led to many people, fearing that the country could be perhaps a step closer to its own briggs. it's a poll exit as it's being del, but in the media around the world. now that has led to white sir protests in poland with people cooling for it's government to sort of tie up to make up with the new. and while a po, legs, it may not be immediately on the cards. what this really is showing is that the ease back is against the wall at the moment. and unless it takes clear and decisive action pretty quickly, there are fears that the whole order could crumble. far. we cannot speak with political analysts, and nikolai markovich are joining us now live from paris. great to see you today. so thanks for coming on the program with us. we're just now talking about the
4:05 am
polish prime minister, accusing e u institutions, and his words of usurping power and undermining democracy. what, what is the polish prime minister really saying that? so he's just discovered right now that you is not really a democratic institution because if he had read some of the trees that point his sign, he would assume very clearly that you law. there is a principle of primacy. if you are over national law, that means that by entering the european union, each member state has abandon a part of its sovereignty. and in such a, during the last years, as long as poland was receiving a subsidies and help from the european union, they didn't mind losing the sovereignty. now all of a sudden that the european union is having a lot of difficulties and has been incapable of managing the cobra crisis. we see inflation coming all over europe. a lot of member states want to take their own some of their future into their hands and apply national law and pull and is now discovering that by doing that it's, it's infuriating the european union,
4:06 am
which is just reminding that it's signed treaty. think that it has abandoned a bit of this sovereignty. so it's not such a democratic institution that the polish people thought it was. i understand that there's no eager country that gets more money and more subsidies from brussels. done poland. and how do you think other, you, nation's viewing the stones from poland especially considering the 57000000000 euros and recovery funds there was stores hoping to receive from the block. or i think many of them are curious because they'd like to go as far as pull it is going now. and it's a tug of war with the european union. i think a many eastern european countries think like like pulling actually, but it shows that there are this big discrepancies within the member state. and it does not forget that the u. k. actually left the european union that many movements political movements say that the solution to the current crisis to the past crisis
4:07 am
as well is eating the european union. so they're all washing this with the microscope to make sure that the to see what comes out of it. to see how paul is going to negotiate out of this, and if maybe brussels at the end is going to as publish a strategic partner, maybe the us to give in or on the contrary, is that you are going to tackle poland despite its importance for the european union, this is something which all member states are watching right now. now in the meantime, a large part of the polish population, especially young people, are well, they're pretty, pretty unhappy with poland, the ruling party, the moment they were massive pro e u protests. it was so last week i'm given that why didn't the prime minister is a ratcheting up the feud with you? i mean, somebody say politically speaking about suicide, whether there is a great divided poly today that the pulling has met now facing what a lot of western european countries faced a couple years ago with a real separation within the country. between on one side maybe some a part of the population,
4:08 am
which is more inclined to be very pro western pro nato pro brussels and maybe a more conservative elder population. on the other side, however, the government today in poland has been elected by these more conservative people. and so if they want to stay an hour and a half to show that it will not give in to russell it to a federal, i'm not too sure yet. it's not because there are hundreds of thousands of people in the street that that means that in the election, they will all turn out and that the majority made by the majority won't vote for them. but it is definitely showing that the fallen has a major social probably has not been able to convince all the polish people of the well being of it. how it is so many people go to the streets and prefer you policy . that was a policy that means that there is definitely a big, a big problem with been calling today. and that there's a divide. there's a divide in poland as there is a divide. and most of the western states of most of the nations which are, is the you can between dos with things that brussel will bring all the solution. and those who are convinced that russell is the problem. and the only solution is
4:09 am
getting out of the european union. now we're already getting our commentary from outgoing german chancellor angle america. she's actually urging brussels to talk to poland. why do you think angler merkel is doing that? it's almost like she's suggesting that poland is right in its position here perhaps was the forget that a couple years ago, german court said that there was a primacy of german all over europe. and also the polls are not the 1st to, to say this. i think maybe in some sense and to america, i think that appointment is really to go ready to go to the quite far in the discussion with the with, with brussels. i think this, i forget that this trip is strategic. partner for the you point has been one of the models with your opinion in these past years. it's a strategic partner. because joe political geopolitical situation of poland in russia and the you at the influence of the us on poland as well. if they get into consideration by brussel, but i think america, who knows very well a bit,
4:10 am
the west and east have you seen how problematic the situation is for the poles? i think she also is admitting to some extent that brussels will not be able to to bring the solution. the polls are waiting for. so she's, she's trying, she's telling, actually brussels to medicate it's a, it's pressure on poland and maybe looking for specific, specific specifics to the solution between brussel and war. stop. if this comes out, many member states will look at this very closely and they will say, well, if there's a specific solution for paul and why can't i have one too? so again, this is just showing how weak the european union is getting and how, how important is in this specific situation with inflation on the right. as well as an appointment and the whole corporate situation. i think brussels is getting ready for some hard times. all right, political analysts, nickel, markovich, joining us live here on the international. always a pleasure,
4:11 am
great to see you. thanks for your coming train. thank you for british families who lost loved ones to cope 90 and last year's care home crisis. and now taking legal action against the government sees shot here it was, dusty breaks down the case. 2 daughters, he lost their fathers in cave, at head cow homes. at the start of the pandemic, are now suing the government. it's a landmark action, not just in terms of a failure to protect the vulnerable responsibility for aggravating the risk while victory won't undo their loss. they hope it may help to protect others. i do not want anyone else to go through what we have been through as a family. i feel terrible guilt. i feel as though she was locked in to die. met hancock's protective freeing statement was a lie. the defendant have provided no evidence of measures to put a protective frank around care homes in just 3 months from march to june. last year,
4:12 am
some saddles, he'd bolivian care homes, died from the virus in england and wales with some official reports blaming. so. 2 inconsistent, reckless and appalling government policies for the huge data, all this weeks case against the department for health and social care, once it held to account this case will give thousands of families his sense that justice has been done. if we're, when, what happened to the residence of care homes in the pandemic was a national scandal. the government's approach to protect and vulnerable care, home residence during the 1st wave of the pandemic is one of the most devastating failures in the morton era. rather than their home been a safe place, it became a breeding ground for a deadly disease. if the government had been completely honest at the time, instead of people in nursing homes and town homes been almost a forgotten lot, which we still are. but it's not about that. this is about people's lives. this is
4:13 am
about what the government promised was happening when it really wasn't. everybody was involved, it was treating this virus which is right, you say is on known virus and an unknown entity. who knows what we, we have to do or what we could have done differently. and these are things we need to learn from. and the goldman should have learned allies ain't going to get you anything. the sailors surrounding her homes are one of the biggest scandals of the pandemic for mass discharge of elderly patients from hospitals to cow homes without testing or isolation. and who can forget when the government says it happens, wouldn't be affected at the beginning of the pandemic. of course, we now know that they were the worst effects earlier this year and into 12 of march, the government's own official advice worse, and i'm quoting from it remains very unlikely that people receiving care in a care home will become infected. it wasn't true that the advice said that or government guidance published on the 25th of february of 2020,
4:14 am
said twice. it was very unlikely people receiving care and care homes will be infected. this advice was withdrawn on the 13th of march. a few months later, boris johnson tried to shift the blame, saying it was cat homes that didn't follow the rules. many didn't really follow the procedures in the way that they could have. so well, this week's cases, ultimately about 2 families search for justice. it runs far deeper, alleging a string of government blunders, but it may also end up serving as some small solace for all those who lost loved ones as a result of those very mistakes, i was the 10 people that we have done it. i could say that i was 99.9 percent. sure . sure. 3rd, and all of them died as a result of cove it but i think we only had 3 positive tests because that's all it was available at that time. and 2 of those were testing hospital in one was the one that i fall off. we didn't notice in care homes. my hancock stood on television and
4:15 am
quite often at 5 o'clock when he was doing the briefed him with the prime minister . we as a nursing home were standing watch this briefing with interest obviously to see what the changes were, what was happening on a daily basis to be to see cost stood in front of the cameras, said all holmes and now being tested, we were to talk absolutely not the author of a ball, michelle dossier on alleged trumpet, russia collusion is standing by his claims while also admitting they may not be 100 percent true. former british spy, christopher still has now spoken out in public for the 1st time. the document, of course, was compiled back in 2016. it contained detailed allegations of a conspiracy between chums associates and the kremlin. are also some salacious details about trump suppose at escapades in moscow, hotel room. none of those allegations have ever been proven. the f
4:16 am
b i later published heavily redacted pages, showing the agency had paid mr. steele for his work, but then all of a sudden cut him off of the he disclosed his u. s. intelligence links to that of a 3rd party, but he is on there are plenty of unanswered questions over the steel report. one of them being, for example, how did it ever come into being in the 1st place as osmotic as df now investigates? the steel dossier has been one of the most mocked derided but, but also talked about reports in modern political history. the spot being mostly dismissed as, as a work of fiction. it has just refused to die. and christopher steel is back again . hyping and defending. he's much maligned dossier. christopher still isn't. it isn't hero, is he traitor. crisper steals a guy who picked to fight with 2 presidents. donald trump and vladimir, and he's live to tell the tale. mind the spoilers. there aren't any new revelations
4:17 am
or poverty details. as with the 1st dossier in a vis tom, chris tries to defend the dossier. the multiple falsehoods and inaccurate season make believe. my li tries. i'm prepared to accept that not everything in the dosier is 100 percent accurate. i've yet to be convinced that that is one of them. yes, he says there are some things that my daughter that are literally made up, but he sticks it teams by the p tape. his allegation that the russians film donald trump with urinating prostitutes. and he has a stella argument to back it up, prove me wrong. he says, you tell him that no one's ever seen the staple heard of it and that he's the only source ad. well, that doesn't convince chris i'm prepared to accept or not everything in the da series, 100 percent accurate. i have yet to be convinced that is one of them. the most
4:18 am
remarkable thing in my opinion, is what steal dossier, supporters. a saying they can't defend the dos here itself. it's, it's so full of holes and lies. so they've come up with a different method. it was the russians who painted the dossier by purposefully feeding. christopher, steal disinformation. it's very likely that the russians planted this information in and among other information that may have been truthful because that's exactly again the way that they operate. the victims that christopher steals reporting have also reacted michael cohen, who the dossier accused of secret meetings with the russians in europe. he had the f. b, i get involved. of course, they found no evidence of any such meetings ever taking place, but regardless. 1 mr. cohen did react. he said that he was pleased that christopher steel hood cruel, that of the pop, just global enough to make up
4:19 am
a few more stories. i'm not too sure that everyone is as please abs crease. the once was quite enough. there is nothing groundbreaking, of course he's being, he's being interviewed by a very sympathetic quote unquote, journalist stephanopoulos has been an operative for bill clinton in the democratic party for a long time. although looking at the mainstream coverage, this sort of rehabilitation of christopher steel seems to be seems to be coming around. you have to scratch our heads even the f b. i stopped using him as a confidential human informer because i found that he was 2 on reliable i think one very important aspect is the collusion of the u. s. mainstream media in this, they absolutely fell down their job or expected someone like steal to be a liar. we expect the people that hired him to be pretty dodgy people. of course, that's the case. but we did, we, at least once would expect, would have expected the u. s. mainstream media, u. s. media to have looked into some of the stories before reporting them as if
4:20 am
they were fact. all right, let's most of the coming to programs. we hit the 20 minute mark of this, our russia and it's post soviet highlights of launch large scale military exercises into g, kissed on the question is, why now that story animal went back in just a moment. ah ah ah ah ah ah ah, i
4:21 am
know, ah with ah, what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race, movies on often bearing to america development only personally i'm going to resist . i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very political time. time to sit down, talk ah, the tuesday towards her or not. so you're welcome to them. the editor of germany's best selling tabloid build has been fired over allegations of sexual misconduct. of
4:22 am
the papers owners explain the move right after a story on julian wright health appeared to the new york times. as the executive board has learned, julian, raquel still fails to maintain a clear boundary between private and professional matters, and has also been untruthful to the executive board in this regard. the executive board therefore considers the termination of his office to be unavoidable union, as i felt woke up on monday morning, is probably the most powerful newspaper editor in all of europe. by tuesday morning he had been dismissed from his role as the editor in chief of germany's most read tabloid newspaper bills. now it came about following claims that he had exploited his position of power in order to conduct sexual relationships with junior employees. this all came to light in an investigation and a publication by the new york times. perhaps one of the reasons why this happened in the united states is that the accent of spring, a group of parent company for bills that runs build as well as all the media
4:23 am
outlets across germany in europe. well, they branching out into the united states and just the summer spent $1000000000.00 buying politico, so they put themselves more on the the raise out of us publications. it's interesting that despite some of the allegations that have come out claims, that there was a hostile environment for women in the build news room, one of the quotes that's used is from a woman who said that she had a sexual relationship with mr. i held and says that that's how it goes. it bill, both that sleep with the boss, get the best that jobs of despite all about coming out. the 1st reaction from access spring, a group, the media giant that runs build is to say, we're going to find out who leak done and we're going to see them. the company is taking legal action against 3rd parties who attempted to influence and instrumental eyes. the spring compliance investigation by unlawful means, evidently with the aim of removing julian wright helped from office,
4:24 am
as well as damaging bills and axel spring up. now that had been an internal investigation into the conduct of miss that i held earlier this year, and it's from that internal investigation. and a lot of these documents have been leaked to the press. the allegations made against mr. i helped with that he carried out sexual relationships, the abused his power in order to conduct those sexual relationships. and that he'd use drugs on company property. they decided following not internal investigation, not to dismiss, still by held from his job. obviously they've changed their mind now in terms of response from before the editor of bill t has issued a short statement in which he said, what i blame myself for is that i have heard people. i was in charge of. however, perhaps what is the most interesting thing to come out of this and it doesn't paint the german media in a particularly good light is that the soul could have come to light a long time ago. in fact, there were 2 previous investigations that were quashed. now what is being revealed
4:25 am
by the new york times is that these investigations had gotten to the stage whereby both mister life has and the accept spring. a group had been confronted with what had been found out and then the inferences that at that point pressure being placed on the, the publishers that were in charge of those carrying out the investigation and got the journalists to kill the story. the fact that it took a foreign publication to make this all public hasn't gone down particularly well. the practices in the build newsroom. i'm the business practices of acts of spring as one of the world's largest and most powerful means year organizations. russia plus to 5 is post. soviet allies have launched some of their largest military drills in years. it's all taking place in central asia. a tanks and thousands of soldiers have amassed into g cust. on along the border with
4:26 am
afghanistan, and they are bracing for any potential spillover from the chaos now gripping the taliban held nation in the wake of the us pull out, reporting from the scene, his auntie's ego to stand off. some 4000 troops, 500 military vehicles, and 6 nations all participating in day one of what expected to become. one of the most impressive and large scale military drills taking place here in the steps of a country that is sharing a more than a 1000 kilometer long border with of gaston. tajikistan is a former soviet republic, now operating under the umbrella of the collective security treaty organization, a russia lead military alliance. the war games there will span out over the course of the week ahead. and while the 1st day has been quiet, there's plenty of action to come. certainly, judging by previous drills,
4:27 am
the location for the games. just 8 kilometers away from the border with of canister is not a coincidence. when the taliban grabbed power in cobble things got tense on this side of the border. when islamic states started to take advantage of the power vacuum, it got even more serious. general do not shy away from openly saying who the show is for. which in your miss and location for the drills has been chosen according to the practical tasks, the armies have to do. we choose with several rules in mind. firstly, we go by the logic, the more you sweat and piece, the less you bleeding was creating realistic conditions on drills, health armies to prepare for the real action, the real sites under the real conditions. it's a situation that's going to need some heavy duty. whoo gaming,
4:28 am
and sure enough over the next few days, pretty much all you'll hear here is the sound of every kind of gunfire imaginable. i'm a gosh darn pushing from tajikistan haughty. vienna's new to artwork is proven to be a bit too risky for social media platforms. these days, a galleries and the austrian capital have been hit by a string of bands on facebook, instagram, and tick tock. so they've now opened an account on only fans, which is typically known for its adult content. now these are just, some of the works deemed to revealing for the major platforms are now for institutions, the al patina museum, the leopold museum, the ot and history museum, and the natural history museum. they've all signed up to only fans. the albertine and museums press officer daniel ben. yes, explains the move now that the project because we hadn't experienced that, it was not always easy, a community in social media and that was our experience
4:29 am
since a few years as well. i don't know really why there is the censorship. i know it are maybe some algorithm or something on the engines that is not allowing it. i think it's not about alga ready to define or to sensor or should be seen or not. and then we saw that it will work on only fence and if it's working there, why not try it? one of the stock is cases of our censorship happen in 2018 when facebook deleted images posted by the austrian natural history museum, branding them pornography. they showed a 25000 year old paleolithic figurine, known as the venus, all villain dwarf. and daniel benya is again things the dispute rate is broader questions over who decides what odd is. it was also the em all
4:30 am
saying, it's not about the social media platform to decide whether ours won't be considered as odds. nudity has been part of based on culture since the roman empire since the greek and everywhere where there is a mankind out. there is also some of moslin pieces of odds that shows nudity. we just question who is going to decide what is about to be shown or not. and we think it should not be an algorithm. and that conversation continues online right now at auto dot com for the meantime. thank you for sharing some of your truth with us here in moscow. we are back soon with more.
