5:01 pm
ah, just a few moments into a brand new day here in moscow, wednesday, october, the 20th. i'm unit oneal and this is your mid week. these are things now it rains on homes in washington and new york linked to russian. businessman and billionaire, i like derrick pascall, have been happening on tuesday. the tycoon currently fund himself on the u. s. sanctions list, the agency later confirmed the search was authorized by a court ortiz kill apartment. it's following the story. while the f b, i is on the scene, the houses are indeed being swarmed. but u. s. media is referring to these homes as being the homes of ali. thereupon jca,
5:02 pm
however, what his representative has pointed out is or not, he is home, they are homes of his relatives and they are apparently being searched by the f b i. here's the information that we have obtained. it's to the f b i's rating. the house is owned by a leg to repost. his relatives, the rates are taking place under 2 court orders related to the us sanctions. now ali dara pasco is a billionaire and business man and in 2018 he was put on the us sanctions list in 2019. he filed a lawsuit against the office of foreign asset control saying that he was unfairly targeted and put on that list. he should not be on that list. us media has widely alleged that therapist has a relationship with paul mana, for an individual associated with donald trump, who was a key figure in the russia gate investigations, et cetera. and he did do business with paul man afford her. however, ali dear pasco,
5:03 pm
has been very clear that he was not engaged in paddling russian influence. he was not involved with donald trump or anything to that effect. furthermore, there have been widespread allegations of money laundering, and derek pasco maintains this is politically motivated. so we have a situation where these properties are being searched. either u. s. media is insisting these are the homes of dera. pasco pasco representative, says these are not the homes of your pasco, these are homes of relatives, and we have a situation where it seems like the u. s. media is once again using this opportunity to bring back to the front of these trump, russia, collusion allegations that we heard and a back during the presidency of donald trump. so i will be watching the situation closely. we have heard from representatives of dera, pasco, about what is taking place. hey, let's move on to more stories. we're across this hour. there's been a testy exchange in the european parliament, after the polish prime minister launched tirade against the e. u. institutions accusing them of overstepping their powers uneven. black meaning
5:04 pm
his country are t. charlotte dupont ski can tell us more about the 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 prime minister and also by emmy peas. 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 divides these 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 ant skis talked about some of the issues that you was facing. he refused to acceptance and it was not right for any piece to essentially blackmail or other countries within the european union bite,
5:05 pm
threatening to withdraw 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, both state, which is not what members signed up for. now during his speech, she was clearly overstaying his welcome when he was interrupted and told to wrap up version of this is if you have in that wishful dame of i'm up just for, i mean the for thought supernova, you have to come both on the van oh, shes sorry chairman i was told by the office of david so sorry that i was a located at 3035 minutes so i will use my time. i cannot confirmed as access and i think that certificate i see autopay have to go nothing completely. i'm,
5:06 pm
i'm coming to my ears, but don't disturb their me please had plenty to say they said that the polish mp was slightly 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 the opportunity to congratulate the anti government protests that had been taking place in poland and suggesting perhaps if they should continue. i went to thank those polls who took to the streets who showed their faces to other poles. hundreds of thousands of them. real patriots took to 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,
5:07 pm
the sinister game that you're playing is very player. the sinister game is that you're putting upon the size, the constitutional court inside the bowl, and better politicized those additional court is criticized by who, by the european court of justice during your speech. i was not sure if or worse listening to your to nigel, fresh to what you have done is in fact putting an existential threat 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 backseat. the commission resident ursula vaughan delane wheat 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,
5:08 pm
de leon said that the commission would do everything to ensure that it protect european citizens from threats. we cannot, and 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, where we legally challenged the judgement 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 appeal 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 any thing but that with the emmy peas basically realizing and saying out loud that they don't accept the pass that poland is on. judging by
5:09 pm
the session on tuesday, it seems that those divisions between poland and the rest of the you are even deeper and wider. the american defense secretary dropped in to ukraine on tuesday and underlined that no 3rd country house a veto on any wish by kiev to join men. nato military alliance in the future. no 3rd country has sir, has a veto over night, owes membership decisions. ah ukraine, or as you heard me say earlier, has a right to decide to his own future foreign policy and a, and we expect that they will be able to do that without any outside interference. will those remarks come in the wake of a dramatic spike intentions between russia and nato?
5:10 pm
moscow signal dates intend to pull the plug on its permanent mission to the block in brussels that will happen on november 1st. nato's mission in the russian capital will also be closed. the move is in direct response to the alliance earlier, kicking out a number of russian diplomats for a ledge spine. the kremlin me, well, has described any ukrainian paid to join nato as an expansionary step too far. he cranes this session to nato would be the worst case scenario. this is the scenario that goes beyond the red lines of russia's national interests. this is the scenario that could force russia to take active measures to ensure its own security . let's go live now to michael maloof. michael is a former senior, a security policy analyst in the office of the secretary of defense in the u. s. and you are very welcome. was this just hypothetical thinking, michael by the us defense secretary, those are marks or is there something more concrete at play here?
5:11 pm
wouldn't nato make that live? well, i think this is all part of a concerted action by the united states once again to to wrap it up, pressure on, on moscow, basically to contain russia in its own sphere of influence. it's clear that lloyd austin, the us defense secretary, hasn't learned anything from the lessons, going back to 2008 when us was trying to push most georgia and ukraine into into nato. but it was, it was, it was the membership itself, of, of nato, which decided against such a move because of the concerns of moscow reaction. and, and for, for moscow it's clear that such accession of border states would be
5:12 pm
a red line for moscow of nato. and it's all, and it comes at a very interesting time with under secretary of state for political affairs, victoria newland, and her visit. most recent visit to moscow in which i understand from my sources, that it was a rather contentious to day meeting with the moscow officials at the highest levels and, and in demand. so that, that we're impose not only by her but, but now by moscow on her. and it could potentially have an impact on, on the future diplomatic relationship between the united states and moscow in terms of what of a diplomatic downgrade. and that is put potentially in the cards as well. and so this is all heightened up and you know, you got lloyd, you have,
5:13 pm
you had lloyd austin in, in georgia, which borders on russia just just there and trying to excite the georgians and give them a false promise that they will be able to increase their military assistance and, and, and undertake military maneuvers. well, that's exactly what happened back in 2008 when the suckers really, who was then the president of georgia got all excited and actually prompted, ah, and, and killed actually, russian, peacemakers, up in the o setup. and that prompted russia than to a come on in, so this, this, this is, it's like they haven't learning the lessons from the past whatsoever. and this is all a pressure tactic as far as i'm concerned. yeah. as you allude to, it's a tens time rush essays, expansion of nato infrastructure, just to summarize into neighboring ukraine, would be a red line on a threat to its national security, forcing it to tick auction direct language being used here. how serious could this
5:14 pm
get, michael? oh, it could get very serious, i a, it, it could, and i think it would have a, a fall out effect, frankly, on other nato countries like germany in even france. i, i don't think that they would, in fact germany has been opposed to ukraine and have a ga, coming into nato for that very reason that it would of create, create a serious problems when it comes to a u. s. i mean, when it comes to nato out russian relations and the fact that it brought russian now diplomats were expelled from nato us in and, and only given the, the general reason of spine, whatever that means it has a only accentuated the problem and increased attention. so it's clear that the neocons, like newland who are in the, by the ministration,
5:15 pm
have renewed their pressures. you're seeing increased maneuvers of nato countries with ukraine even though ukraine is not a member of nato. and the, and you're going to see increased black sea action by a natal forces in the very near future. and i think all of this is going to create unnecessary tension in the region. he make a great point about nato members. the alliance, of course, is made up of members on when one nato member is attack, the others are expected to follow through undefended. meaning that there's a lot on the line that goes outside the 3 areas i play here. moscow key have brussels, doesn't it? there's a lot of other countries that maybe want to say that aren't being heard. that's correct. and those other countries see, well, 1st of all, ukraine and even ga, not members of nato. so any attack quote unquote, would not necessarily precipitate native response under article 5. but if they were
5:16 pm
in included in nato and actually join and were accepted, that would create a whole new level and article 5 them would be in effect. but i, but here again, you have the united states making promises of commitments that we've seen in the example of all of afghanistan, that they are unable to keep over a long period of time. so it's going to be questionable how long us will continue to try to assist ukraine with its military or even i don't, i don't see them really pushing the natal membership angle because that will actually create increased bilateral tensions between moscow, united states directly. if it isn't already high enough, it's not in a good place. is it at the moment, michael, thanks so much for giving us a sense of all our a lot of aspects touched upon there by michael miller, former u. s. senior security policy and the thank you. thank you union. so
5:17 pm
had an ard see russia and it's post soviet allies launch large scale military exercises into jacob. stan, but why they're unwind. reach me at all. ah ah. ah .
5:18 pm
herman died. rumor shaped bankers are those with dares sinks. we dare to ask oh okay, we start by with news out there is a lot of disappointed britons out there after the u. k. government, emergency crone of ours pars, were extended for another 6 months. bring it into as spring and beyond. it comes
5:19 pm
out of the country, recorded its highest daily cobit debt toll since march, but also as protests are increasingly being seen against boxing, passports are correspondent in london. shabby edward's dusty, takes up the story. the house of commons has just waived through the government's flagship corona virus act of 2020 dots. the 350 page act, the emergency powers, as it swept through the government some time ago. introduce at the start of the pandemic. i will now continue for an additional 6 months, so it went through without even a vote. today it was expected that the parliamentary body would be holding a vote on all of this, but literally there was no opposition to it. so it was just swept through opposition, though, was on the streets of central london today. numerous protests is gathering all across central london fighting for their freedoms and their liberties, which they say this act actually denies them off. now i was there myself and for
5:20 pm
some hours there were numerous clashes with the police throughout the day. however, the most alarming incident on the streets has to be when the cabinet, minnesota michael. gov was accosted by these protest as they cornered him, pounced on the him, essentially accusing him of all sorts of things throughout at the pandemic. it was then that please, i'll shoot him into a nearby building the department for transport right here in westminster, offering him that much needed protection. ah, ah, ah, ah, essentially these activists today say there is no need for these emergency powers that basically allow the government to keep its unprecedented powers in place. interestingly though. 6 that there wasn't any opposition to it in the house of commons, especially from the labor party whose job it is to oppose the government. in fact,
5:21 pm
we saw a turtle you turned from labors shot, our house secretary said john ashworth, who said to day, we do not oppose the renewal of this act. but just at the thought of the pandemic some 20 months ago, he described this act as the tony an ever seen, and peace time breton that has never been subject to any robust scrutiny in parliament. of course being swept through today again, really dodging any scrutiny whatsoever. so what really are we talking about then while they were going to do some 20 months ago, as i say last spring, originally, i'd say give how was to the government to enforce the locked down rules. but now it's somewhat adapted into many other facets of life. as of course, lockdown is now many a thing of the past today. it's more about things like police powers, of course, issue of mom, and also things like the mass vaccination rollout. that is still very much underway, although it's now moved to the under 18 year old class. things like the vaccination
5:22 pm
possible. it could very much become a reality. however, all of this comes in the context of the united kingdom. it has reported its highest number of kind of a death for 7 months and cases, a really going back to the level they were some months ago. of course, winter is only round the corner, meaning the pandemic could again return to the things that we've seen in the past. so all of that in context is potentially why extending these emergency powers is justified for the government. another interesting story to tell you about the author of a bombshell dossier on a ledge. trump, russia collusion is standing by his claims while also admitting they're not 100 percent true. former bitter spike christopher still has spoken publicly on his findings for the 1st time. the document was compiled in 2016, contain detailed allegations of a conspiracy between trump's associates and the kremlin. there are also some saucy details or by donald trump, supposedly escapades,
5:23 pm
and moscow hotel room. none of those allegations have been proven the f b, i later published heavily redacted pages showing the agency had paid still 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 answered questions regarding the steals darcy and not least how it came to be. those are senior correspondent, iraq guest if reports the steel garcia 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 get to fight with 2 presidents,
5:24 pm
donald trump and vladimir, and he's lived to tell the tale, mind the spoilers. there aren't any new revelations or perverted details. as with the 1st dossier, this time chris tries to defend the dossier. the multiple falsehoods and inaccurate season make believe miley tries, unprepared to accept that not everything in the da sia is 100 percent accurate. i have yet to be convinced that that is one of them. yes, he says there are some things in 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,
5:25 pm
it hasn't needed to be released because i think that russians felt they've 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 hair 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 steele disinformation. it's very 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 of 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,
5:26 pm
but regardless. 1 mister co indeed react. he said that he was pleased that christopher steele had cruel that of the pop just long enough to make up a few more stories. i'm not too sure that everyone is as please abs chris. the once was quite enough. there's nothing ground breaking in, of course he's being, he's being interviewed by a very sympathetic, quote unquote journalist. her 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. 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 too unreliable. 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,
5:27 pm
that's the case, but we did, we, 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. in a major show of strength, hundreds of tanks and thousands of soldiers have amassed into jacob, along the border with afghanistan. while it's all part of military drills between russia and 5 of its posts solving allies, it's also designed to send out a clear message in what's currently a turbulent region ortiz or shit down off. so all the routes on the growing for him . so some 4000 troops, 500 military vehicles, and 6 nations all participating in day one of were 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
5:28 pm
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, the location for the games. just 8 kilometers away from the border with 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
5:29 pm
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 in peace, the less you bleed in 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 whoo gaming. and sure enough, over the next few days, pretty much all you hear here is the sound of every kind of gunfire imaginable. i'm a gosh darn over. was informed that his son archie above is a ramp but don't go too far. more great programs get there. start in moments immediately after a quick look at what else the heads in the near future on ortiz staples, a
5:30 pm
a ah! ah ah hi, i'm bax guys. are this is the guys the report, you know, fax or fax and sometimes they're just easy to see and sometimes
5:31 pm
they're not. hello, i'm max kaiser stacy.
