. broadcasting lab, direct my studios in moscow, this is our to international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us are now staff shortages, sorting code cases and pressure on the national health service. the n, a chess have all led to another crisis in england. it has been reported that in parts of the country, patients are waiting for almost 50 hours to get a bed in accident and emergency units. now in one case of patient reportedly spent 47 hours in line at the royal preston hospital and hours drive from manchester. while in the southern county of suffolk, a teenager with a serious mental health problems, had to wait for almost 48 hours in the emergency room, according to local media. the n h s foundation trust for the area said the wait was due to a lack of specialist facilities, like luke winchester, who had a relative, affected by the crisis, told us what happened in their case. he woke up at 11 o'clock and his legs just
7:02 pm
wouldn't work and he fell out bed. we didn't find him until 3 o'clock where my dad's going to get cooler, where he shouldn't heard from him. when we called for the ambulance initially they said not to leave him. oh, in case the best spinal injury off white. you saw a couple of hours my, my dad saw of saw trying to hurry them up a little bit, tried to finding no, no, no. and again, to ask when you sent us an estimate arrival that direct him to 111, he would then turn him back 919 to and from there. eventually we spoke to a chat. he suggested how to move him back into his seat and had to get him up and we did that is improving, but he probably still require medical assistance. but they 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 him at the value and said, yeah, okay,
7:03 pm
we'll cancel that and then soon we'll give him his dinner and get him into bed, etc. because over the night i stay the night make sure that you know the night is condition wesson's. and in the morning i school for another ambulance report say 91 percent of hospital beds were occupied in england as of last friday. that's the number of people waiting for a hospital treatment. there is a record high. according to the n h s, almost 6000000 people are on waiting lists and the coming winter will only intensify the pressure. at the same time, britain's health secretary has admitted there aren't enough staff to operate the country's emergency telephone lines 999, and 111. so gene javi the added that a detailed plan of action is being put together and would be unveiled soon. bud luke winchester isn't convinced every step of the way that mismanaged the crisis. aside from the vaccine roll out, i don't re personnel any faith in the current government. and the people on the
7:04 pm
ground who are working really hard. like the paramedics, like the people answering the cause. they're not necessarily always getting, given the clearest information. you know, i fully believe that when the 1st from 111 told us to talk 299-999-9111. i'm sure that they believe that's what you know, that's what we come to do. there's no real simple answers to where i think they're going to fix it, because their actions so far appear to be per unit. on tuesday, the u. k. registered the highest number of daily covered deaths since march, and the government extended its emergency powers related to the corona virus. for another 6 months, demonstrators including anti factors, it took to the streets to protest. this and other pandemic measures. german police have warned that the countries border with poland is at risk of collapse amid a massive influx of migrants crossing over into the ear from neighboring bella.
7:05 pm
ruth peter oliver has more of a story. the european union is placing mounting pressure on minsk over refugees looking to enter the e u via bella roost. now the german foreign minister has been among a group of, of senior german politicians that have pulled absolutely no punches whatsoever in their comments. hi, co must. the foreign minister has accused alexander lucas shanker, our rights of running an illegal migrant transport network, is innocent o'clock we in europe are being confronted with the fact that lucas suncoast using refugees as a tool to put pressure on european nations. look suncoast. nothing short of the head of a state run smog when radar with arthur shift in new bill in and through belarus, stay tokenized, or at least state supported smuggling activities are taking place. the regime and belarus is now considerably expanded. the list of countries from where people can enter without a visa, that's a form of hybrid threats, where migrants are being used as
7:06 pm
a political weapon horse 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 along, 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 a route. so the route that quite a few people had taken. now this air bag 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
7:07 pm
e. you traveled across at the time. billions were given towards or promised at least, and certainly been 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. there still a lot of reserve judgment when it comes to exactly how successful that deal was. and however, any sign of a deal being offered towards belarus and is non existent at the moment. in fact, the bell, russian president, alexander lucas shanker, says that he's doing everything he can possibly to fight illegal immigration, but says that all he 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
7:08 pm
. 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. dr. steven steven godric of the institute of european studies in belgrade, described at the attitude of brussels to bell roofs. as colonial. fell receipts being treated quite differently from turkey. we can see the clear difference in language and in deeds. and there is this sense i will say oregon's when. 3 i, when brussels is talking to them, a sense that i would even compared to their postcolonial cost. i would say this has a lot to do with window hybrid warfare with hybrid warfare against russia. and
7:09 pm
billers is being seen as a, let's say, influenced by russia from the russell long ministration. and of course, from their western neighbors, the baltic states and poland. so i do think we have more concerns for geo politics here than ford human rights. the e u has awarded. it's a lot of prize for freedom of thought to rush an opposition figure election evolving. the accolade is given out annually by the european parliament to recognize what it calls perseverance for human rights, or he's don quarter got more details earlier from our correspondent charlotte davinsky is, is considered to be the use talk human rights prize. but there are concerns about how it's been used in recent years. we've heard now on wednesday that the 2021
7:10 pm
recipient is alexi navarro, leonor position figurehead in russia who's currently serving jail time for breaching bail conditions. just want to give you a bit of background on what's led to a valley being in jail at the moment. i lost in august, he was on a flight on his way to moscow, where he fell ill. he was taken to a russian hospital and then later requested that he was moved to a facility in germany. he was moved to that facility in germany and it was after he arrived there that they were allegations from the doctors that he had been poisoned with a substance known as normal shock. now at since then, we had accusations from goverlan start just germany, but also across europe, accusing the russian government of being behind that poisoning. however, russian medical officials and officials at the hospital where he was treated in russia, say that ad there was no trace of the poison when he was being treated that he did
7:11 pm
return to russia and as a result of breaching his rail conditions, he was sent to serve out time in prison and that's where he is currently as recipient of this top a human rights award from the european union parliament ball. charlotte, you mentioned that there are just a, just the beginning of your talk there, that there's been some concern about the prize being politicized. can you tell us a little bit more about that? yes, that's right. some any piece themselves hates out at this award, saying it's being used as a political weapon by the european union. and that's because the recipient doesn't just get 50000 euros and a statue. they also get the backing over the european parliament themselves. and it has been just in the, over the last few years, the choice of the norman knees and then the people who get this accolade really have something in common in that is that many of them have been cooling for
7:12 pm
government change in their own country. that start in 2020. when at the bell, a russian opposition at received this award at a time when the e. u is encouraging protests in belarus against the elected government fair in 2018 . it was a ukrainian film director who was in jail for plotting tara in 2017. it was the venezuelan opposition at a time when the e. u was sanctioning president madura of venezuela. and in fact, it was that year that emmy peas really hate out really started to get angry about this award at saying that the e you had and a mind dialogue and venezuela their words not mine. and as a result were boycotting the ceremony that year, they also accused the e. u. of instrumental lazing. human rights is the use of this award that the price is also been awarded to political leaders in the past. but some of since fallen foul of the you including ang, since the key in my, and man as a result,
7:13 pm
she's been stripped of her rights to be part of this exclusive community. the addition now of alexi, nevada, the will increase those thoughts from many that really this is an award that is being used as a political tool by the european union, against those government cit dislikes or disagrees with. it's a european parliament award, but one german emp is far from happy at the decision. maximilian crosses the west's applying double standards towards political opposition and that is unacceptable. you will know the record of mister yvonne, the, when he came up to a clear races and then he was in russia for having fought for, for making 1000000 with putting the money to a company and pipes for not paying taxes. and that won't be reach now we
7:14 pm
reach now, but the situation that it becomes ridiculous, especially because because we have a neighboring country, which is the ukraine. and there is an elected parliament with arrest and a government in putting a real elected opposition leader into arrest. on the other hand, we have a at least doubt who figure that we thank you and then we say ok, just this, take a look at a human life, american human human rights. on the other hand, even recognize that we have a problem when it comes to refunding and double span of the hype to christ makes the predictable isn't here with our international on the way telephone leaders have been in moscow for multinational talks to tackle afghanistan's
7:15 pm
humanitarian crisis, at security there worsens our next door. when we come back, this is our t international. stay with us. the yes sir. now a dual system of justice many think so for example, a former senior f b i of issue lied repeatedly to his bosses. but now is exonerated, but a former head of the national security council did not lie to be f b i and his life was destroyed. where is the justice in that? ah
7:16 pm
ah ah ah, hold back, this is our to international. now with the security situation in afghanistan, deteriorating taliban leaders have been in moscow for talks focusing on the humanitarian crisis that has gripped the war to our nation. 11 countries to part in the conference are corresponding with august to have reports from the venue. this is been the biggest international events attended by the taliban, yet 11 countries,
7:17 pm
president, all of us got astonished neighbors as well as russia, china, india. we're representing near enough half of the world's population vienne. 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 where by the taliban rules of kansas fog, but the international community east largely reluctant to recognize the taliban as the official government, as the official rulers of, of got a sudden and on the day, an intended consequence of that has been that the life and struggle of audrey afghans has been getting worse. and that was in the joint statement that all sides involved 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
7:18 pm
their sovereignty or religious principles. one, 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 principles, we don't have a problem with it. we're already receiving some humanitarian aid. the session itself a all the delegates met to place bod closed. those we were told, there were many things that they agreed on, such as the need to stop. now could trafficking out of, of, got us on the need to address the security situation that the, the attacks by isis icon and other terrorist groups there. but we'll to also disagreements, disagreements about the makeup of the afghan government, the taliban. insisting that it's government is inclusive other countries, such as russia saying that it isn't as inclusive as it needs to be. that this government is packed with taliban officials. hard like taliban officials with
7:19 pm
passion at the city. 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 marcia 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 for you which is moved is do we are convinced that it's time to mobilize the efforts of the world 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 behaviors towards afghan citizens. first and foremost from western countries and 20th presence brought about the current, deplorable situation and didn't in any way contribute in strengthening industrial or economics phase. and afghanistan again, 11 countries here will have of got a stance neighbors plus russia, plus china, priests plus india. all countries,
7:20 pm
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 had, 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 crisis have told us that they're ready. once the need arises, facebook is paying out $14000000.00 in a civil case over discrimination. us social media giant 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 in hiring practices. now the tech giant gave certain positions mainly to temporary visa holders. prosecutors claim up to $2600.00 us workers last out. as a result, facebook has been fined almost $5000000.00 and is paying out more than $9000000.00
7:21 pm
in compensation to victims. and the lawsuit against the tech giant was filed last year by the us justice department. back then, the trump administration pushed the biggest tech companies to hire more americans for permanent positions instead of temporary for and workers. legal analyst jennifer britain explained to us why facebook in particular, adopted that policy a stuck and some of these other companies will watch these immigrants. it's a way for that 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 a company like facebook, with a lot of money would be able, their, their high priced attorneys, or be able to find a case that had narrowed claims but again, is being brought by the department of justice itself, i think is very surprising of people. many people who see facebook or some of the
7:22 pm
social media platforms is an arm of a political party. so it has kind of been 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, this, this partner. so this story might be used by either the federal government, by the new situation, or by facebook to argue that the way we are different, you know, we, we, we, we can be held accountable 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 arts of most of many of political federal agencies in order to st. silence political opponents. a nepotism storm has had leading us democratic party representative maxine waters who was head of the house financial services committee. her daughter has again been exposed for pocketing vast campaign funds. financial disclosure records reveal,
7:23 pm
she paid her daughter karen more than $80000.00 over the fiscal year, which ended last month that shoots the total she has received from her mother over a decades long career to more than one point. $1000000.00 she has been paid for running an uncommon federal practice called slate mailing, where a consulting firm is hired to list rival candidates and their policies and advisors who to vote for the congresswoman. now faces calls to go. this is how democrat socialists work. they take care of their own while people they represent lose jobs, pay high taxes, and in many cases go homeless. i am calling on the resignation of maxine waters. she needs to be investigated. maxine waters did this before and face no legal consequences. she knows she isn't going to face legal consequences. now. the law is fairly vague on us politicians using campaign funds to pay family members with election commission rules only demanding that salaries don't exceed the fair market
7:24 pm
. value. journalist daniel was our claim. such behavior is essentially cropped, but nothing will change. the american political system as battery with this kind of corruption. just, it just goes on and on. no one pays attention to it. everyone regards it is normal and therefore nothing is done. i mean, this goes on cross the board throughout congress and the presidency as well. i don't expect very much to happen because it would require a very rigorous kind of oversight. and much more rigorous than the american political system is capable of doing the, the, the standards in washington are very lax and they allow people like waters to get away with this kind of stuff. and it just keeps going on and on. and it never stops . the world health organization is restarting work on a proving rushes,
7:25 pm
putting the coven vaccine after the process was put on hold a month ago. with more. here's our team to meet your well, it seems that we might actually be getting closer to an approval. the w h. o, just recently updated the status of the approval process for the student v vaccine . this process was put on hold earlier. they were waiting some documentation, but now it's been resumed and is apparently already in its final stages. all that remains to be done really is that a team of inspectors from the w h o must now visit russia to finish up all the necessary paperwork and inspections, and so on. but russian health officials do hope that the vaccine could be approved . finally, within just the next few months, because as a reminder, the splitting feedback scene was one of the 1st ones due to be developed and see widespread use. actually right now it's available in 70 countries. am, has an efficacy rating of over 97 percent. however, throughout his development, the vaccine has seen a lot of controversy which is severely hindered his acceptance in the west and the
7:26 pm
w. h. o has been yet to recognize it or recommended. however, if this approval system process does go through smoothly, it could mean that the people who have received the student, the job could soon be able to travel to countries which only accept w h o recommended vaccines. because right now, if you took this wouldn't v job and want it to go to a country which only accepts w h o vaccines. well, you'd either not be able to get a visa, or you'd have to get another vaccine, us w, h o approved vaccine. but if this process, the approval process does go through and w h o officially recommend splitting the that whole problem could become a thing of the past. if it is free this, i'll be back in about $33.00 and a half minutes with another full extra news. this is art international. ah, join me every posted on the alex simon. sure. and i'll be speaking to guess in the world politics sport. business. i'm show business,
7:27 pm
i'll see you then when i see black america, i see part of my so when i was growing, young, black american spoke to me. when white australia did not. those who say black lives matter is a movement we are importing from america. know nothing of who we are. i lived in a world where wife lives mattered. and i was not wide like missing. and i wasn't known from black america. i learned how to speak back to whiteness. aboriginal people here at law every day. we are out loaded system. now with the police were out with she states, i'm scared that more children are going to grow up in the country that think says no racism, but they're more likely to end up in the criminal justice system. then there are
7:28 pm
other fellow friends in daycare we have always been able to push that in sort of a far dark corner of our conscious because that will turn it in. once there are alternatives, you can no longer do that and you have to kind of accept, oh yeah, for that an animal has been killed and how we act as greenhouse gas emission. and here we have essentially the same product, same price, same quality with none of those features. oh yeah. so maybe a lot that in the beginning is scary, but in the end it's not a ah
