5:01 am
michelle dossier on alleged trump. russia collusion which he now admits was not a 100 percent accurate. ah noon on tuesday and a very warm welcome to you. this is auntie international life from moscow. and posing a threat to the unions future, that's the accusation to polish prime minister has leveled against various e you institutions. mateusz morabe, etzky 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, usa powers, they do not have under the treaties and impose their will on member states. poland set for this huge show down with the u. this is tensions that have been building up
5:02 am
for years now between the country and the e u institutions, but they really had a fire lit and under them recently, this is off, the 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've 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 they're saying that 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
5:03 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 angler 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 if a nurse with it. 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 problems,
5:04 am
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 a poll exit as its being doubled in the media around the world. now that has led to whites or protests in poland with people calling for it's government to sort of tie up to make up with the you. and while a poll legs, it may not be immediately on the cards. what this really is showing is that the use 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 just a bit earlier in the program here on r t, i spoke with political analysts, mikella markovich. he said, poland, like several other e, you states is facing an internal battle over its future. in the block. there is
5:05 am
a divide in full and as there is a divide in most of the western states of most of the nations which are in your opinion, between those who think that brussels will bring all the solution. and those who are convinced that bristle is the problem and the only solution is getting out of the european union. it shows that there are this big discrepancies within the member states. that 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 pass crisis as well is leaving the european union. so they're all washing this with the microscope to make sure that it to see what, 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 polish a strategic partner, and maybe the u. s. o to give in or on the contrary, is that you going to tackle poland despite its importance for the european union. this is something which all member states are watching right now. british families
5:06 am
who lost loved ones to cove at 19 and last year's care home crisis and now taking legal action against the government ortiz at shot, he had was actually breaks down the case. 2 daughters, he lost their father's in cave. it had cat 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 do 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 he was locked in to die. met hancock's protective freeing statement was a lie. the defendants have provided no evidence of measures to put a protective frank around care homes in just 3 months from march to june. last year, some samples he'd for living in care homes died from the virus and england and wales with some official reports flaming. so. 2 inconsistent,
5:07 am
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 a sense that justice has been done. if we're, when, what happened to the residents of care homes in the pandemic was a national scandal. the government's approach to protect and vulnerable care home residents 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. the government that being 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 about what the government promised was happening when it really wasn't. everybody was involved. it was tracing this virus which is like you say is on known virus and
5:08 am
an unknown entity. who knows what we, we had to do or what we could have done differently. and these are things we need to learn from the goldman, sheila learned allies ain't going to get you anything. the sailors surrounding her homes are one of the thickest scandals of the pandemic. for mass discharge of out of the 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 time them. and of course, we now know that they were the worst affected 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, 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,
5:09 am
or as johnson tried to shift the playing, saying it was cat holmes that didn't follow the rules. many didn't really follow the procedures in the way that they could have. so well, this week, 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 did died. i could say that i was 99.9 percent. sure. sure. 3rd, and all of them died as a result of call of it. but i think we only had a 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 our testing care homes. my hancock stood on television and quite often at 5 o'clock when he was doing the briefing with the prime minister. we as
5:10 am
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 on cost of the incentives. the cameras say, all homes are now being tested. we were to talk absolutely not the author of a bombshell. dossier on alleged trump, russia collusion is standing by his claims while also admitting they may not be a 100 percent true. former british spy, christopher steel, has spoken out in public for the 1st time. the document was compiled in 2016 and contained detailed allegations over conspiracy between trumps associates and the kremlin. there were also some salacious details around a trump supposed escalades and escapade you say in moscow hotel room. now none of those allegations have been proven. and the f b, i later published heavily redacted pages showing the agency had paid steel for his
5:11 am
work, but then suddenly cut him off after he disclosed his u. s. intelligence linked to a 3rd party. but years on there are plenty of unanswered questions over the steel report and how it came into being as osmotic as the eff, now investigators the steel dossier has been one of the most marked 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 garcia. christopher still isn't. it isn't hero is he trader christopher steals a guy who picked a 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 or poverty details. as with the 1st dossier in a vis. todd chris tries to defend the dossier,
5:12 am
the multiple falsehoods and inaccuracies and 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 dos here that are literally made up, but he sticks it seems 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, it hasn't needed to be released because i think the russians felt they'd got pretty good value out of donald trump when he was president of the us. the most remarkable thing in my opinion, is what steal dossier supporters. a saying they can't defend the dos here itself.
5:13 am
it's at so full of holes and lies. so they've come with a different method. it was the russians who painted the dossier by purposefully feeding christopher steel. these information, it's very likely that the russians planted dis information in and among other information that may have been truthful. because that's exactly again the way that they operate. the victims that's christopher steals reporting. have also reacted michael cohen, who the dossier accused of secret meetings with a 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 mister co indeed react. he said that he was pleased that christopher steele had crawled out of the pop just long enough to make up a few more stories. i'm not too sure that everyone is as please abs crease.
5:14 am
the once was quite enough. there's nothing groundbreaking in of course. he's being, he's being interviewed by a very sympathetic, a quote unquote journalist. 3rd, 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 or has even the f b. i stopped using him as a confidential human in form of because i found that he was too unreliable. i think one very important aspect is the collusion of the u. s. mainstream media in this they absolutely fell down their jobs were expected. someone like steal to be a liar. we expected 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. i would have expected the u. s. mainstream media us media to have looked into some of these stories before recording them as if they were fact. the editor of germany's best selling tabloid build has been fired over allegations of
5:15 am
sexual misconduct. the papers owners explain the move right after a story on june are like held, appeared in the new york times. as the executive board has land, 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. julian that i held 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 build. now it came about following claims of 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
5:16 am
in the united states is that the ac so spring, a group of parent company for bills that runs build as well as other media outlets across germany in europe. well, they branching out into the united states and just this summer spent $1000000000.00 buying politico, so they put themselves more on the, the radar of us publications. it's interesting that despite some of the allegations that have come out claims that and 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 mister, i health and says that that's how it goes at bill bows, that sleep with the boss, get the better jobs of the spy, all of that coming out the 1st reaction from ac. so spring a group, the media giant that runs build is to say, we're gonna find out who leak done and we're going to sue them. the company is taking legal action against 3rd parties who attempted to influence and instrumental eyes. the spring compliance investigation by unlawful means,
5:17 am
evidently with the aim of removing julian reich out from office as well as damaging billed and axel springer. now, there 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 me that i held was that he a carried out sexual relationships. he abused his power in order to conduct those sexual relationships. and that he'd use drugs on company property, they decided following that internal investigation not to dismiss that i held from his job. so they've changed their mind now in terms of response from the former editor of build, he 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 this all could have come to light
5:18 am
a long time ago. in fact, there were 2 previous investigations that were quashed. now what is been revealed by the new york times is that these investigations had gotten to the stage whereby both mister like health and the excel springer 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 here in germany. but the genie is out of the battle, now's as it were when it comes to the practices in the build newsroom and the business practices of access springer as one of the world's largest and most powerful media organize nations. all right, how far through the program here, we're not seeing international still to come one of the big stories, russia and it's post. soviet allies are right now,
5:19 am
launching enormous military exercises in tajikistan. the question is, why would explain the story in just a moment? a what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation, let it be an arms race is on a very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successfully very difficult time. time to sit down and talk so it gives rise to the question about these crises and who's behind them? we had the sub prime crisis that resulted in mind. the printing that made the top
5:20 am
get richer. we have the coldly crisis which has resulted in the top getting richer because of all the money printer. and we had a war in afghanistan go on for decades, which resulted in money printing in the top get richer, you know, and, and, and then you can get into the other, you know, into some other areas as well, really making some hard, making hard question o 1220 p. m, here in moscow. so russia plus 5 of its post. soviet allies have launched some of the largest military drills in years. it's all happening in central asia. a tanks and thousands of soldiers have amassed into g cust. on right along the border with afghanistan, and that bracing for any potential spillover from the chaos. now gripping the taliban health nation, reporting from the region is unties eco to stand off. some 4000 troops,
5:21 am
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 afghanistan. 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,
5:22 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 his la mic state started to take advantage of the power vacuum. it got even more serious generals do not shy away from openly saying who the show is for which in your mirror this 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, and sure enough, over the next few days, pretty much all you'll hear here is the sound of every kind of gunfire imaginable.
5:23 am
i'm a gosh, darn opposing form tajikistan. odyssey for me to help you as envoy to afghanistan is stepping down less than 2 months off of the celtic military withdrawal and subsequent taliban takeover. this comes as the u. s. inspector general launches multiple probes into those events and thought he's caleb martin now reports the zalman calla zach. the top us representative for afghanistan has been announced to be soon resigning, and he will be replaced with thomas west who was right now serving as a deputy envoy for afghanistan now. now make callous. od has been very key in the events that took place of last couple years. he oversaw the negotiations between the united states and the taliban and cutter. that took place under the trump administration, leading up to the doe ha agreement between the united states and the taliban. this announcement comes as we find out that the inspector general for the state
5:24 am
department will be opening an investigation into what went wrong in the pull out of the united states from afghanistan. we understand that diana shaw informed the u. s . congress that she'll be looking into 4 key areas of the chaos withdrawal of the states from afghanistan, 1st to the special immigrant visa program. also, the afghans process for refugee admission into the united states, resettlement of those refugees and visa recipients, as well as the emergency evacuation of the u. s. embassy and cobble this is part of the continuing fall out of the u. s. withdrawal from afghanistan. the world watched, as afghans were dangling from planes, billions of dollars of military equipment was left behind, all leading up to that bombing that took place at the airport. a lot of americans want answers about what went wrong. quite a bit of anger across the united states and how the minute ministration handled things. a lot of big questions being asked from both democrats and republicans. we
5:25 am
will be anxious to hear what the inspector general has to say, and we'll be also anxious to hear what mr. callas odd has to say, as he will soon be stepping down from his position's anti war activist immediate. benjamin doesn't think the scope with the investigation will be broad enough. unfortunately, i think the investigations will focus mary, very narrowly on the exit itself, which was absolutely chaotic. will focus on things that need to be looked at, like the drones strike that killed as 10 people in a family, including 7 children. and when are we going to look at and, and, and try to learn the lessons about invading and occupying other countries. and then i think there is the lesson of how do you leave when a country is dependent for the vast majority of its entire budget on foreign aid, how do you just pull the plug and not expect that there will be either a civil war or there will be a breeding ground for extremist groups like al qaeda and i says,
5:26 am
so i would hope that it would not only be backward looking, but forward looking. but i, i don't have great confidence in that. i think one of the most frustrating things for colleagues had was that the corrupt government in afghanistan that the u. s. had supported for all these years was unable to really come to the negotiating table and deal with the taliban was unable to form a strong government that had popular support. and now there will be another relationship, but it's unclear. i how this relationship would precede, vienna's new to artwork is proven to be a little bit too risque for today's social media platforms. a galleries and the austrian capital are being hit by a string of bands on facebook, instagram, on tick tock. so now they've opened an account on only fans, which is typically known for its adult content. and these are just some of the
5:27 am
works deemed to revealing for the major platforms. so now for institutions, the al patina museum, the leopold museum, the art history museum, and the natural history museum have signed up to only funds. the albertine museums press officer daniel benya is explains the move was not a good project because we had experience that it was not always easy, a community in the social media. and that was our experience 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? one of the starkest cases of censorship happen in 2018 when facebook deleted images
5:28 am
posted by the austrian natural history museum and branded them as pornography. they showed a 25000 year old paleolithic figurine, known as the venus, all villain dwarf. and daniel been yes again, things the dispute rate is broader. questions over who decides what is odds? it was also the aim saying it's not about the social media platform to decide what are, what would be considered as nudity has been part of some culture since the roman empire since the greek and everywhere where there is a mankind. and there is also a sum of massive pieces of odds that shows nudity. we just question who is going to the site? what is about to be shown or not?
5:29 am
and we think it should not be an algorithm or that the program for this help our life from moscow. of course it is auto international. i'm rural re sushi. thanks for spending some time with us here. we're back in about 31 minutes. it's a busy tuesday for you. well, white headlines hope you can join us. the top of the blue. ah.
5:30 am
ah. this is boom, both the one bit the show you can't afford to miss. i'm brenda bork. and i'm rachel levins in washington and coming out the china growth has taken ahead of the government's latest crackdowns combined with supply chain shortages and extreme. whether we'll take a look at what it means to the future of the world's 2nd largest economy plus another day. another controversy for facebook as a social media giant is beeping out against report planning there a i, technology for the staff, the ongoing legal issues facing the company that we get to europe, where you continue to grapple with supply chain issues and it's covered recovery. we bring you the latest coming from the head of the block central bank.
