oh, it's 7 pm in the russian capital and you're watching rti international. i'm your host donald quarter. welcome to the program. now we start the sour with breaking news coming in from france, where a man has reportedly beheaded a person before fleeing the scene. the incident happened in the town of boleyn in the south east of the country. a major police operation is currently underway, and authorities have posted a photo of the suspect warning that the man is dangerous and may be armed. officers say terrorism is not their principle line of investigation. at this point. however, it has not been ruled out staff shortages, soaring coven cases, and pressure on the national health service have all led to another health crisis in the u. k. it's been reported that in parts of the country, the patients are waiting for almost 50 hours to get
12:02 pm
a bed in accident and emergency units. in one case, a patient reportedly spend 47 hours in line at the royal preston hospital in northern england. while in the southern county of suffolk, a teenager with serious mental health problems waited for almost 48 hours in the emergency room. according to local media, the n a chest foundation trust for the area said the wait was due to a lack of specialist facilities. luc winchester, who had a relative, affected by the crisis, told us what happened in their case. he woke up 11 o'clock and his legs just wouldn't work and he fell out bed. we didn't find him until 3 o'clock where my dad's going to go cool. where he shouldn't heard from him when we call the ambulance initially they said not to move him. oh, in case the best spinal injury. after what you saw a couple of hours my, my dad sort of saw trying to hurry them up a little bit, tried to finding no 99 again to ask when they sent you an estimate arrival that
12:03 pm
direct him. so 111, he would then turn him back to 9992 in front of that. eventually we spoke to chappy suggested how to move him back into his c and how to get him up. and we did that improving, but he probably still required medical assistance, but insinuated to us that was not even a senior. they said, would you, would you like to cancel the ambulance on everything but the ambulance that day and at that point we took them at their value and said, yeah, okay, we'll cancel that and then we'll give miss dinner and get me to bed, et cetera. was over the night, i stayed the night make sure that overnight these conditions worsens in the morning . i'd call for another ambulance report say 91 percent of hospital beds were occupied in england as of last friday that says the number of people waiting for hospital treatment. their hit record height according to the n h s. almost 6000000
12:04 pm
people are on waiting lists and the coming winter will only intensify the pressure . at the same time, britton's health secretary has admitted that there aren't enough staff to operate the countries emergency telephone lines. that's 999, and 1. 11. the health minister added that a detailed plan of action is being put together and would be unveiled soon. but luke winchester is not convinced every step of the way the mismanaged. the crisis. aside from the vaccine rolled out, i don't re personnel, any faith in the current government, and the people on the ground who are working really hard, like the paramedics, like the people answering the calls. they're not necessarily always getting, given the clearest information. you know, i, i fully believe that when the person from 111 told us to talk 299-999-9111. i'm sure that they believe that's what you know. that's what i'm told to do is a real simple answer as to where i think they're going to fix it because their actions sofa appeared to be per unit. on tuesday,
12:05 pm
the u. k. registered to the highest number of daily cova deaths since march. and the government extended its emergency powers related to the corona virus for another 6 month. so demonstrators, including anti baxter's, took to the streets to protest this and other pandemic. german police have warned that the countries border with poland is at risk of collapse. i made a massive influx of migrants crossing over into the e u from neighboring bell roofs parties. peter oliver has more on the story. the european union is placing mounting pressure on minsk over refugees looking to enter the e u via bella roofs. now the german foreign minister has been among a group of, of senior german politicians that have pulled absolutely no punches whatsoever and their comments. hi, co must. the foreign minister has accused alexander lucas shanker, our rights of running an illegal migrant transport network. visit on center will
12:06 pm
park we in europe are being confronted with the fact that lucas suncoast using refugees is a tool to put pressure on european nations. look, a suncoast, nothing short of the head of a state run smuggling rain. with our shift in new bill in and through belarus, stay tokenized or at least state supported smuggling activities are taking place. the regime in belarus is now considerably expanded. the list of countries from where people can answer without a visa, that's a form of hybrid threats. when migrants are being used as a political well hosted, they offer the interior minister of germany here you just heard. there's also said that he wants to coordinate with his polish counterpart in order to have joint border patrols a long, not polish, or bellow russian border. that border basically between belarus and the european union. there has been a deal done between brussels and baghdad. though in this particular issue, that is to make sure that no planes will be flying refugees from a rock into bell
12:07 pm
a route. so the route that quite a few people had taken. now this band on flights is going to be in place at least until the end of the year. but what we're talking about deals, and particularly when it comes to refugees minds go back to 2015 to the start of the migrant crisis, which saw over 1300000 people seek asylum inside the european union. a deal at that time was done with turkey. turkey of course, was the country that the vast majority of people who arrived inside the e. you traveled across the time, billions were given towards or promised, at least, and certainly from hundreds of millions given to turkey, trying to make sure that people either remained in turkey or certainly didn't make or try to make that crossing that still a lot of reserve judgment when it comes to exactly how successful that deal was, however, any sign of a deal being offered towards belarus and is non existent at the moment. in fact,
12:08 pm
the bell, russian president, alexander lucas shanker, says that he's doing everything he can possibly to fight illegal immigration, but says that only gets in return from his european partners is political pressure and sanctions. you're stifling us information, li, you are doing it methodically and collectively. you're trying to destroy our economy and expect us to spend hundreds of millions of dollars protecting your cheer, political interests, like before. you must be crazy to think we will support you if you want us to help . you have to take steps in that direction rather than try to stifle us. it's hopeless. well, despite it not being what anybody in brussels wants or certainly not what they want to talk about publicly, at least it does seem that one of the only real ways to get to the crux of this problem may be for the a you to work directly with bella roofs, us social media giant facebook as having to pay out $14000000.00 in
12:09 pm
a civil case over discrimination. it was accused of giving preference to hiring foreign workers over americans. facebook. he is not about the law and must comply with our nations federal civil rights laws, which prohibit discriminatory recruitment and hiring practices. the tech giant gave certain positions mainly to temporary visa holders, and prosecutors claim up to $2600.00 us workers. lost out. as a result, facebook was find almost $5000000.00 and is paying out more than $9000000.00 in compensation to the victims. the lawsuit against that tech giant was filed last year by the us justice department and back then the trump administration pushed the biggest tech companies to hire more americans for permanent positions, instead of temporary foreign workers, legal analyst, jennifer brita, and explain to us why facebook in particular adopted that policy facebook and some of these other companies will watch these immigrants. it's
12:10 pm
a way for facebook to save money, while also preventing maybe lawsuits for unfair or discriminatory work practices. which in and of itself is discriminatory against actual united states citizens that we're applying for work and unable to get at the company like facebook, with a lot of money would be able, their, their high priced attorneys to be able to find a case that had merit less claims branch is being brought by the department of justice itself, i think is very surprising. people, many people who see facebook or some of the social media platforms is an arm of a political party. so it's kind of being this distinction drawn between this, what we consider politicize, or a bite and era department of justice, which should be friends with facebook. actually bringing a discrimination claim against, you know, that this partner. so this story might be used by either the federal government, by the new situation, or by facebook to argue that see where we are different,
12:11 pm
you know, we, we, we, we can be held accountable up or not above the law. when in reality, they've been working hand in hand for a long time, and facebook has been acting as an arm of most of many political federal agencies in order to st. silence political opponents. now we're going back to our top story from france, where a man was reportedly beheaded, a man reportedly beheaded a person before fleeing the scene. we're going across live now to our, to charlotte rabinski, who's in the country on scene for us right now. charlotte, what do we know? so farm well when some that there is a huge man hunt operation on the way, looking for this 37 year old man who has been described as being armed and dangerous local individuals from clues which is near avenue in the south of france have been asked to stay in the homes around 1300 people in that region being asked
12:12 pm
to stay at home while this man hunt is on the way. as you mentioned that the 37 year old is suspected of beheading another man, not just the heading of a man at a home in the area, but also a vista rating. him, which is offensive disempowering the victim. so this sounds like a pretty horrendous attack. we understand that there are around $85.00 individuals plus 15 police at the moment looking for this individual who as i say is said to be armed and dangerous, and where the stand helicopters also being used in that search at the moment. now the young dom said that they haven't ruled besides just being a terror attack. but this isn't something that the necessarily considering at this stage, this is of course, just a year after a teacher here in france was beheaded samuel party last year in what was then a terror attack. but since then,
12:13 pm
a beheading seems to be coming something that is more frequent to her refill crime . just a week ago in law say in the south of france, a 77 year old woman was found to capitated as well. now her body was found next to her head, which had been placed strategically. it seems on a table next to her. in that case, the 51 year old man has been arrested over that mood. it seems that he apparently was known to the woman who death was reported after her son got suspicious. so bedding seems to be a crime that we hearing quite a lot of hearing from so over the last year. but for the moment on this break news, we understand that there is a massive manhood taking place in the south of france for 37 year old man who is said to be armed and dangerous, and suspected of not just having beheaded another person, but also eviscerated them essentially dissing biling their bodies. well, that's certainly some startling news coming out of france r t. charlotte davinsky,
12:14 pm
thanks for giving us those updates. u. s. navy base just north of washington dc has been put on lockdown. i made a bomb threat. special teams have been clearing buildings at the walter reed medical center, located on the base in the u. s. state of maryland. it's one of america's most prominent military hospitals, where presidents are provided medical care. the threat was called in on wednesday morning, claiming an explosive device was located at the facility. there were also reports of an active shooter that have since been dismissed. the basis personnel have, in order to shelter in place on russia newsletter. mir putin has ordered a non working week for russians nationwide from october 30th to november 7th. in an attempt to stop the spread of the corona. virus ortiz correspondent danny armstrong has the latest is, of course, as for a non working period of around about 9 days, just a little over
12:15 pm
a week from october 30th to november, the 7th. now, of course, that could be extended if those measures do nothing to combat those rising cold cases in russia. cost recently, in russia, there has been a reports of over 34000 daily co v cases that has been a national high the highest been since the virus emerged, the on saturday figures were released of over a 1000 at dest daily. that was also a new record. now president putin has today said there is a need to break the chain of to spread the virus and to never underestimate the seriousness of the situation. now let's just get a little bit more on what exactly president putin said. mister lennox is leaving him. unfortunately, we see what dangerous consequences the low level of vaccination in our country has led to. i will repeat once again, the vaccine really reduces the risk of illness, as well as possible severe complications from that illness. and even the risk of death emberly's,
12:16 pm
i emphasized the need to increase the pace of vaccination. and of course i once again urge all of us citizens to be actively vaccinate issues. it's about your protection about your safety, about your life. after all about the health of your family, movies or courses. so of course, as you just heard, there it is very much a case of personal responsibility to go out and get the vaccine. and the criminal has said time. and again, the all russians do have the facilities needed to go out and get the jap, now that low percentage of population that have been vaccinated. so far, the president putin was talking about is around about 33 percent of the nation. that's 47300000 russians who have had the jap, 9 day working periods and non working period, rather now are a mini lockdown, just a combat. those that those covert cases, it could come in to effect earlier in regions that have a particularly high rate of the cold cases around about uh, with these 20 said president, please. he said to the russian population, go out and get that vaccine and take it upon yourself to go and get innoculated.
12:17 pm
germany's green party widely expected to foreign part of the next ruling coalition has accused russia of playing poker with gas. its leader says moscow might try to blackmail the e u by turning off the taps, so as to pressure the block into approving nord stream to rushes, hit back at a spate of similar allegations saying it's ready to deliver more gas, but it's simply received no new orders, russia is not opposed to given more, but suppliers ligastrum need to be asked and not buy parliaments, don't buy newspapers, but by buyers who apply at the appropriate prices. but they have been no implications. here's a somewhat confusing story for you. governments in dozens of countries are worried that there are people won't be able to properly heat their homes as winter is just around the corner. natural gas has become absurdly expensive. it's an energy crisis . there's no doubt about it. and the leader of the country that extracts and sells
12:18 pm
more natural gas to the rest of the world than anyone else speaks at an event themed around energy. whatever is desperate for extra gas supplies must be all ears . were absolutely ready to supply more. for some reason he keeps being asked the same question, extra supplies, are you okay with that? is it possible? hey, what about extra supplies? i repeat, we've already increased supplies. at some point it really gets confusing for the speaker, didn't he just make things clear several times in a row. we're ready to supply even more gas. we need applications. we're increasing by as much as they ask. let me explain. this man has long been accused of using the gas monopoly in his country called gas rum to cheech european countries lessons. so after hearing from latimer, potent governments in the countries that are worried about the winter have 2
12:19 pm
options. they couldn't keep repeating, he's boiling them with gas, or maybe at least try a few requests for extra gas supplies. a few days later, an important man who's meant to act as a unified voice of these worried governments that i mentioned says this, an increase in prices for energy has deep to political brutes. it's part of a geopolitical battle. russia has on it all, its contract cannot be said that they're not delivering when they said they would, but it has not increased the quantities contracted for that's after a get together of europe's most senior diplomats who were meant to discuss the energy crisis. among other things are, again, are they living in completely alien realities? back to putin for 2nd, russia never used this is a weapon. we're happy to do extra. so what is it then? did they choose not to try at least a couple of requests. the 1st of all,
12:20 pm
it's an income for russia, so it's natural resources. and nevertheless, the political fight picks all this a subject and a subject as far as her gas is concerned, is a wonderful one, because the old argument was all this russia spec, meaning us. russia is cutting off a gas and soviet dependent on russia. this is an old story if you go through the sanctions in america, hundreds of pages, if you look through, they always say the same kind of sink and, and the very end them make it clear point. they have interest as well. not energy political means, but also of course, economic interests. and here we are again. and that's the better for me. i'm, unless there have been some phantom applications that the russian side is unaware of confusing well, in the meantime, american liquefied natural gas producers on mass have been choosing to sell to
12:21 pm
asian buyers instead of european. right. simply because in asia they're ready to buy at a higher price. will anyone accuse them of waging a geopolitical battle? earlier i spoke with international relations expert and program director at the vall die club, tim a fe, but a child. he told me that the e u leaders are not willing to lead up in their feud against russia, no matter what the consequences they might have in store for their people. i believe that russian needs to understand one fundamental think about european behavior. the european governments will continue to follow games and follow bargaining with russia on till this certain born, even if they're to european population, we'll die because of the cold temperatures. and even if there's certain sectors of european economy will stop functioning. so for the european governments, they're negotiating position in russia. the wida negotiating position in
12:22 pm
geopolitical sphere is much more important than the current functioning of the european economy. and more important than the reality or would the market economy with the security situation in afghanistan, deteriorating taliban leaders are in moscow for talks focusing on the humanitarian crisis that has gripped the war torn country 11 countries are participating in the conference and our senior correspondent, moore had gazda of got the details. this is been the biggest international events, attended by the taliban. yet 11 countries, president, all of us got astonished neighbors as well as russia, china, india, will representing near enough half of the world's population. and the aim here wasn't a concrete objective to agree on something. it was rather to discuss where to go from here because we're at something of a stalemate whereby the taliban rules of goddess thought. but the international
12:23 pm
community east largely reluctant to recognize the taliban as the official government, as the official rulers of i've got a sudden and on the death unattended consequences that has been that the life and struggle of ordinary afghans has been getting worse. and that was in the joint statement that all sides evolve at his side. as of now, a 3rd of the population is on the verge of starvation. taliban has said that it is open to foreign aid, foreign humanitarian aid, food medicines being delivered. so long as the conditions attached don't violate their sovereignty or religious principles on a peaceful afghanistan is in the interest of all parties involved, just as we want, positive relations with others. we also see positive relations from the outside. we are committed to the principles of islamic sharia law, any aid or assistance that has been given. if it's in line with ours law, mac principles, we don't have a problem with it. we're already, we're seeing some humanitarian aid. the session itself, where all the delegates met to place bod closed, those we were told,
12:24 pm
there were many things that they agreed on, such as the need to stop naco trafficking out of, of got us on the need to address the security situation. that the, the attacks by isis, archived and other terrorist groups that will to also disagreements disagreements about the makeup of the afghan government. the taliban insisting that its government is inclusive other countries such as russia saying that it isn't as inclusive as it needs to be. the says government is packed with taliban officials, hard blood taliban officials will pass student at least to the predominant that about efficiency. there is very little representation, but by ethnic minorities, all political dissidents, political opposition groups. and that is something that must change. but russia also says that the, the urgent power t, now, at least to make sure humana aaron aid is delivered to i've got to stop by every one where you are. truth, mood is duly. we are convinced that it's time to mobilize the efforts of the world
12:25 pm
community to provide cobble with effective financial, economic, and she monetary and assistance in order to prevent a crisis and to curb migration flows. we expect responsible behavior towards afghan citizens over 1st and foremost from western countries. 20 year presence brought about the current deplorable situation and didn't in any way contribute in strengthening industrial o, e can on exp is, and afghanistan again, 11 countries here, one of of got us on tuesday was plus russia plus china press plus india all countries. the vested interest in making sure that i've got austin remains stable. the u. s. delegation by the way was invited, but the united states said it was unable to attend because of logistical challenges . another similar in the event of moscow, full matter east plant, there is no dates yet, but we'll get isis have told us that they're ready. once the need arises.
