9:01 am
really was former british spy, christopher steel blows his cover 5 years after his bomb shell dossier on a legit trump, russia collusion. he now admits it was not 100 percent accurate. ah, broadcasting live from our world news headquarters in moscow. this is our team international. i'm your host donald quarter. welcome. there's been a fiery exchange in the european parliament today. the polish prime minister launched a tirade against e u. institutions in a confrontational speech, accusing them of overstepping their powers and even blackmailing the country. ortiz, charlotte davinsky has the story. fiery doesn't go half the way of describing some of the accusations that have been thrown there was mud slinging throughout the session at the european pol and by the polish payment is down also by m. p. 's
9:02 am
right back at him. this was meant to be the opportunity for the polish prime minister to come to the european parliament to try and heal these devises divisions between his country and the european union. his speech seemed to have done the exact opposite with emmy peas, accusing him of leading towards a government of totalitarianism and undermining the e. u. its foundations itself now might have ad skis talked about. some of the issues that you rip was facing. he refused to acceptance and it was not right for emmy please, to essentially blackmail other countries within the european union bite, threatening to withdraw or to hold back their funds. and he said that the constitutional law in poland would remain supreme to that of e. you law and he said that the idea of changing that would move the you towards a fully fledged governor bull state,
9:03 am
which is not what members signed up for. now during his speech, he was clearly overstaying his welcome when he was interrupted and told to wrap up version of this is yep, of in the bridge for them of our managers, primarily the for 30 bravo. you have to come on of our no. show us, sir. chairman, i was told by the office of david, sir, sorry, that i was allocated 3035 minutes so i will use my time. i cannot confirm their success and confirm that certificate. i see autopay ca have to go nothing completely. i'm. i'm coming to my end, but on the certain is there me peas had plenty to say they said that the polish m. p was slyly leading his country to leave the european union. one said they thought it was nigel for raj who was talking at that session. while other emmy piece took
9:04 am
the opportunity to congratulate the anti government protests that had been taking place in poland and suggesting perhaps they should continue mac. i want to thank those polls who took to the streets who showed their faces to other poles. hundreds of thousands of them. real patriots took the streets with national flags, proud polish flags, and european flags in their hands. a patriot should not be a nationalist. we are all listened to your denials. but the truth is, your actions are a sly way to lead poland out of the union. unilateral eagle actions cannot be accepted and will have consequences, the sinister gain that your playing is very clear. the sinister game is that you're putting a bullet, the size, the constitutional court inside depaula, and better politicized dose. additional court is criticized by who, by the european court of justice during your speech, i was not sure if or worse, listening to you or to nigel fresh to what you have done is in fact putting an
9:05 am
existential tract for your country. this is our road to exit. there is no room for alternative solutions. in other words, what you are proposing here and to day it's a constitutional brackson, the commission resident ursula vaughan delane, which was demanded that she in the commission act immediately. emmy peas, called on her to reject the recovery funds for poland. they called on her and the commission to trigger the rule of law conditionality, mechanism v d l herself vaughan, de leon said that the commission would do everything to ensure that it protect european citizens from threats. we cannot end, we will not allow our common values to be put at risk. a commission will act and the options are all known. first, option on fingerprints,
9:06 am
where we legally challenge the judgment of the polish constitutional court. another option is the conditionality, mechanism, and other financial tools. the polish government has to explain to us how it intends to protect your pin money given this ruling of their constitutional court. this was supposed to be an opportunity to make amends. the eula rift to bring poland back into the fold, the bosom of the e. u. what transpired was anything but that with the amy piece, basically realizing and saying out loud that they don't accept the pass that poland is on. judging by the session on tuesday, it seems that those divisions between poland and the rest of the you are even deeper and wider. british families who lost their loved ones in coping and last year's care home crisis, or taking legal action against the government ortiz,
9:07 am
shoddy, edwards da. she breaks down the case 2 daughters. he lost their father's in cove 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 for him around care homes in just 3 months from march to june. last year, some samples paid for living in care homes died from the virus and england and wales with some official reports blaming. so. 2 inconsistent, reckless and appalling government policies for the huge debt all this weeks case,
9:08 am
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 residence 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. 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 about what the government promised was happening when it really wasn't. everybody was involved. it was tracing this virus which is right, you say is on known virus and an unknown entity. who knows what we had to do or
9:09 am
what we could have done differently. and these are things we need to learn from them. the goldman should have learned allies ain't going to get you anything. a failure surrounding her homes are one of the thickest 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 that hands wouldn't be affected at the beginning of behind 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 any 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 in care homes will be infected. this advice was withdrawn on the 13th of march. a few months later, boris johnson tried to ship the plane, saying it was cat homes that didn't follow the rules. many didn't really follow the
9:10 am
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 will, 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 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 quite often at 5 o'clock when he was doing the briefing with the prime minister. we as a nursing home were standing watch this briefing with interest obviously to see
9:11 am
what the changes were. what was happening on a daily basis to lead to fema hancock stood in front of the cameras saying, all care homes are now being tested. we weren't at all, absolutely not. russia's foreign minister has accused nato of burying cooperation with moscow after the expulsion of several envoys by the alliance prompted moscow to sever diplomatic ties are easily a patrol reports from sochi, where the russian minister spoke at the vol die international forum. for now, moscow has a mission in brussels, which is where the nato h q is. and the purpose of that mission is to deal directly with the nato officials, of course, but just in 10 days on november, the 1st the mission will shut its doors completely. why, because as a surg elaborate house just put it in saw streaks, nato has pretty much done everything to room dialogue,
9:12 am
opportunities with moscow. altogether, nato buried the idea of consultation with russia. we believe nato should take the 1st step in improving relations. the way to west is reacting to russia's response to nato is an attempt to shift blame. it demonstrates a lack of diplomatic culture. however, as the russian side is putting it, it's not that the russian government is keen to get rid of this channel of communication. i e, maintaining its mission in the belgian capital. it's just that earlier this month, a group of russian diplomats were kicked out of brussels altogether at meaning that only 10 mission employees could stay there. and the russian foreign ministry is saying that with these 10 diplomats, it's simply impossible for the mission to function and that's why they have made this decision. so the result is these critical remark spite surg, elaborate and it looks like relations between at moscow and nato are only
9:13 am
continuing to deteriorate. no matter what. however, when it comes to some of the bilateral contacts between perhaps the number one country nato, that is the u. s, of course, and moscow when it comes to specific stories like afghanistan, there could be progress, for example, because there is a new envoy that was appointed by washington in afghanistan. and he, according to surgery, lab rav has already been in touch with russian diplomats. and 3rd elaborate said that he'll be welcome in moscow when it comes to consultations, specifically about the things that are happening in kabul and elsewhere in afghanistan. the author of a bombshell dosier on a legit trump, russia collusion is standing by his claims while also admitting they may not be 100 percent true. former british spy, christopher steel, has spoken out to the public for the 1st time about this. the document was compiled in 2016 and contained detailed allegations of
9:14 am
a conspiracy between trumps associate and the kremlin. there were also some saucy details about donald trump, supposedly escapades in moscow hotel room. now none of these allegations have been proven and the f b, i later published heavily redacted pages showing the agency had pain steel for his work, but cut him off as a source after he disclosed his us intelligence links to a 3rd party. years later, there are still many unanswered questions regarding the steel report and how it came to be in the 1st place. as r t is more, i guess, do you have reports? 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
9:15 am
isn't hero, is he traitor. crisper steals a guy who picked to fight with 2 presidents. donald trump and vladimir. and he's lived to tell the tale. mind the spoilers. there aren't any new revelations or poverty details. as with the 1st dossier, no vis. todd chris tries to defend the dossier. the multiple falsehoods and inaccurate season make believe miley tries, unprepared to accept that not everything in the dosier is 100 percent accurate. i have 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,
9:16 am
rad doesn't convince chris. it hasn't needed to be released because i think that 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 still dossier supporters. a saying they can't defend the dos hair itself, it's at 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 steele. this information is there likely that the russians planted dis, information in and demand other information that may have been truthful because that's exactly again the way that they operate. the victims, as christopher steals reporting, have also reacted michael cohen, who the doughty accused of secret meetings with the russians in europe. he had the f. b, i get involved, of course,
9:17 am
they found no evidence of any such meetings ever taking place. but regardless mister cohen did 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 so sure that everyone is as pleased abs chris. the once was quite enough. there's nothing ground breaking in, of course he's being, he's being interviewed by very sympathetic. quote unquote, journalist stephanopoulos has been 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. we have to scratch our heads even the f b. i stopped using him as a confidential human informa because i found that he was to 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,
9:18 am
that's the case, but we did at least once, would expect, i would have expected the u. s. mainstream media, u. s. media to have looked into some of these stories before reporting them as if they were fact still to come on our tea, russia and it's post. soviet allies have launched large scale military exercises in such a staff. the question is, why now that story and more after this short break a ah
9:19 am
ah, mm. ah, herman by dreamer shaped by thinker some of those with dares sinks. we dare to ask oh, well,
9:20 am
come back to the program. now, the editor of germany's best selling tabloids built has been fired over allegations of sexual misconduct. the papers owners explained the move right after a story on julian ry. kelte appeared in 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 guy helped 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
9:21 am
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 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 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 as taking legal action against 3rd parties who attempted to influence and instrumental
9:22 am
eyes, the spring compliance investigation by unlawful means, evidently with the aim of removing julian wright helped from office, as well as damaging bills and axel spring up. now that had been an internal investigation into the conduct of mister i had 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. they still held from his job. obviously they've changed their mind now in terms of response from the former 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
9:23 am
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 by the new york times is that these investigations had gotten to the stage whereby both mister light has and the access 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 journalist 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 bottle. now as it were, when it comes to the practices in the bills. newsroom, i'm the business practices of access spring, as one of the world's largest and most powerful means year organizations.
9:24 am
russia plus 5 of its post soviet allies have launched some of their largest military drills in years. and central asia tanks and thousands of soldiers have amassed into j. a stand along with the border along the border with afghanistan and there bracing for any potential spill over from the chaos. now gripping the taliban held nation, reporting from the scene hears artes eager stuff. 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 garrison 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,
9:25 am
there's plenty of action to come. certainly, judging by previous drills, the location for the games. just 8 kilometers away from the border with a 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 generals do not shy away from openly saying who the show is for. which in your midst 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,
9:26 am
the less you bleeding was creating realistic conditions on drills helps 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 will gaming and sure enough, over the next few days, pretty much all you'll hear here is the sound of every kind of pornography they showed a 25000 year old paleolithic figurine, known as the venice, venus of villain dorf daniel benny's again thinks the dispute raises broader questions over who decides what art is? it was also the aim saying it's not about the social media platform to decide what ours, what would be considered as nudity has been part of best, some culture since the roman empire since the greek and everywhere. where there is a men kind of out. there is also a, some of moslin pieces of odds. the chose community. we just question who
