day collecting wood for fires. we spoke to some of those in the camp including a disabled boy who is hoping to get treatment in the who you want to be when you grow old the day, cause he was born with a disease in his legs. we tried very hard to get treatment abroad, but we didn't get the emission to leave the country. we received an offer for treatment from germany, but we were not allowed to leave kurdistan after several years of not being allowed to leave. the doctor told us that his legs had to be amputated. since then he has been using the press thesis. these are his legs. he's walking with those legs. they're getting too small for him. every 6 to 8 months, they get too small because he's growing up and we don't have the money to change them. life until the stone is too hard. he can't go to school play in the playground. all the children insult him because he has a disability. what's your favorite game to play more? of course you would like to go and play football side with these trustees his legs
8:03 pm
. he can't. meanwhile, poland has deployed additional police and troops, as well as military hardware at the border where it has declared a state of emergency. it's after migrants tried to storm the frontier on monday, cutting through the razor wire fence and using tree trunks to flatten. clashes broke out with border guards who used tear gas and the sound of gunfire was also heard. according to polish estimates, as many as 4000 people remain at the border round, 10000 more are believed to be elsewhere in bellows, and heading toward the frontier to try and enter the many refugees at the camp. say they are now lacking the most basic supply. on tuesday evening, humanitarian organizations did manage to deliver some aid, including food, water, warm clothes, and blankets, and more. arrived on wednesday, our correspondence constantino ross golf is there for us. hundreds of migrants have gathered to get free food deliver by val, russian volunteers and the local red cross. this is much needed help for these
8:04 pm
refugees. a stuck here at the polar show vellerilla border. now we can see that kids, they are served a 1st to get milk and some cookies. this is much needed help for these. a poor her migrant says they're running extremely low on supplies. you know, for the past few days, these people have been on a poor dyed made up of junk food or potatoes, cooked on campfires. but even these can stocks are almost gone. now. cold is another problem for these migrants, most of which came from the middle east temperatures now dropped below 0 degrees celsius at night. and these people have to sleep right on the freezing ground, not just man, but also women and children camp fires. let's have a look at the scene here, and you can see lot of camp fires. they are now never stop burning because david camp crucial for these people's survival, of course, cold and food deprivation is an extremely dangerous mix. recently we came across
8:05 pm
a boy who was barely responsive, his mother told us he couldn't get up since this morning and refused to eat. she is worried sick that her son my die at this camp. and i, you know, the problem is that there are no medics on site. unfortunately, these refugees are at the end of their robes. they don't want to stain barrios, but poland doesn't let them into the european union. refusing to consider their asylum applications. at some point, almost everyone at the scamp lined up along the barbed wire fence over there, and people chanted open the border in a desperate attempt to bring attention to their plight. it didn't take any immediate effect though, as the polish security forces stood still and just idly looked at these people through the layers of barbed wire. number of vel, russian politicians and civil activists also took art and delivering supplies to the my address. as constantine just mentioned, there are several tons of humanitarian aid have been provided so far from the local
8:06 pm
branch of the red cross. most has been donated by bell, russian producers and companies. ambulance crews are at the camp as well. while that humanitarian assistance is being handed out, a group of nobel prize winners has appealed to you institutions to take action. in an open letter published on tuesday, they said that europe has no right to take their eyes off the tragedy. they demanded that polish authorities allowed journalists and human rights organizations to enter the border area from the you side or to charlotte davinsky. with more on that part of the story for us as if humanitarian crisis plays out as desperate people wait to try and enter into the e u. they are being treated like they are political ping pong that has been humanitarian assistance. able to get through. but it's not very much, and that's why the poor nobel prize winners have written this open, let it now demanding that humanitarian organizations have regular access to help
8:07 pm
out. the polish government imposed the state of emergency on the buddhist trip when poland and ballers on the basis of which to refuse the excess of sick and dying in the border area to doctors and paramedics, and prevented the media from accessing the tragedy that was going on there recall on the 8 organizations that can provide medical and legal assistance to be allowed to enter the border area. poland has been securing its board for some time. it's been putting up farm why offences. it's been installing more surveillance cameras to see what's going on. and it sends more than $10000.00 troops and police officers to try ensure it's frontiers. and now it appears that the e u, which at the moment is currently fining poland 1000000 euros every day for its refusal to fax down on the dish reforms. and this is withholding billions of years in coverage recovery funds appears that it's ready to open the right,
8:08 pm
a new blank check for poland in a bid to shore that barrier that infrastructure on the board of that to secure it's instant frontier is just a month ago. the you said that was out of the question. now it seems that that is very much back on the table in the mean time. the other thing that's being discussed is, sanctions, more sanctions are due to be announced next week. that's what we're hearing from diplomatic sources. not just against bella roost, but also we understand that this could be extended to russian and turkish airline carriers that operate from middle eastern countries and fly in to minsk. this situation really seems like it's rapidly deteriorating. of course, the european commission and the central european governments. i'm interested to keep the refugees away from central europe,
8:09 pm
so they will edit poland onto the x and after that of cross it will be confrontation again. natalie. 6, which is done and ma moment is contra dictionary because on april we have international law on paper. the european union claims for itself to cling to the human rights and all the qualities. florida, this is pure political will off the old european union, not to have those people so that mall won't come is a political decision to shock the people along so that they tell the relatives who are maybe still at home. don't come here is cindy, but it's the reality. the you is revealing its sense of superiority in its approach to the migrant crisis on the polish fellow russian border. so says it rushes foreign minister, making that accusation as he met his bell russian counterpart here in moscow. come when you have a shoes, the polish, unless lenience didn't come to us asking for help. they enjoy their own sense of
8:10 pm
independence. making loud claims and blaming belarus. and russia, they didn't ask anybody for help. this is a display of their arrogance and impunity to belittle the foreign minister as representing allies, men skin moscow have spoken out against how the european union member states have been treating bowers in the wake of the border crisis that is refusing to deal with the bell russian government directly to at least try and work out solutions for what's happening at the border. we also heard from the top diplomats that all the proposals that were coming from minsk for a talks have been completely ignored by european countries. instead, according to the allies, minsk continues to receive threats of further isolation and more punishment and the form of sanctions. now i asked the, the foreign ministers what they make, of the way some senior polish officials and commentators began drawing parallels
8:11 pm
between what's happening at the water right now with the beginning of world war 2. that was back in 1939, some of the darkest days and polish history. and this was the response by sir you love rob, virginia street and political discussions. the west is increasingly reverting to historical examples and parallels. but they always cherry pick the information. if poland says the situation resembles 1939, then why did they not remember 1938 when czechoslovakia was torn apart. for example . such perilous are absolutely inappropriate and reflect and inadequacy. the logic of the people sang them. it only means that the so called young europeans continue to pull europe towards escalating confrontations with both belarus and russia. i hold that responsible europeans do not allow themselves be drawn into this dangerous spiral. the message from some of the most senior year p and union
8:12 pm
officials has been the same since they're very outbreak of the crisis. that is, that that means is trying to wage hybrid war against the blog. but what i heard from the bel russian top, the woman was that he's actually amazed how he's never seen the same kind of attitude towards the european union's neighbors in the mediterranean or in the balkans. given the scale of the influx of refugees that the block has seen for years from the south and from the southeast. here's what else, the bel rushing top level mad said about that problem. the problem is not bela bruce, but the european union. what exactly is their strategy? it is to punish a rebellious country that has taken a different point of view and has taken in their opinion, some unacceptable steps. it is an absolutely intolerable approach. there must be dialogue, but they have driven themselves so far into a corner that they cannot get out of it. and then it happened that they did not
8:13 pm
even recognize the legitimacy of the bell russian government. so now they do not know how to get out of this situation. this is clearly nothing but a complete diplomatic deadlock and the situation on the border isn't likely to improve any time soon. but at least mens has been reassured once again during wednesdays meeting that it's got the backing of its eastern ally in other news this our all frontline national health service staff in england will have to be fully vaccinated against covet or face losing their jobs. the plans have been outlined by the government although estimate suggest more than 120000 health and social care workers could now quit over the issue or to study edwards dashti has the story. all you say that's usually concerning the sector that's already so short staffed an impact assessment is already coming through warning that this will of course, lead to a reduction in the services and lead to delays in the services as well. but try to
8:14 pm
target the health secretary, insist weighing up the pros and cons. the pros of keeping people say actually tip the balance. they carry a unique responsibility. they have this responsibility because they are in close contact with some of the most vulnerable people in our society. particularly, an issue of being under stop when the increase of demands are happening in health services like one directly behind me. and if you put that all into the context, all the pressures of the pandemic many and h as professionals, are really disappointed with the government. they feel demoralized and they don't want to be pressured into this. they feel po was threatened and ultimately forced into this policy. now trade union speaking on behalf of many of the and h as professional say this move using the law will actually do more harm than good . the government hasn't listen to what many people told them during that consultation. which is that potentially the fact that they're reaching press
8:15 pm
sledgehammer on this using the law. or even the chief executive of n h. a provider says that the government actually needs to try and win the argument through the powers of persuasion not just using and imposing as laws to do so. and in any case, is there really a need for this in the 1st place, considering already 90 percent of any just stuff already. double fascinated versus only pulls around, $50000.00 unvaccinated people will become fully vaccinated. and is that really enough to push through a policy like this? then if we take that example of those in social care, now the deadline, all of those members, a staff in social care to be double vaccinated, it actually later this week on thursday and still that policy with an out. because we've actually seen a gradual increase of people coming back. they did, but a huge amount of people have again entirely left the sector. so it seems like that is
8:16 pm
a bit of logic for the government trying to protect those most vulnerable. of course that is fair enough, but what we do know here is there isn't really a public opinion. there isn't really much of an appetite to make the vaccinations compulsory, whatever the profession is. so it is a very risky move. indeed, we are likely to see a month it is up and it just stop professionals from a house that was already on it. the the government said they wanted to keep people say, but. 2 i want to create and they end up doing the opposite. meanwhile, the head of a chest, england has faith accusations of trying to scare people into getting vaccinated. that was after she claimed current covered hospital admissions. we're surging. 14 times the number of people in hospital with it that we saw this time last year. and we've also had a record number of 800 says the outdated figures she was referring to were actually from august, while in fact, the very latest data shows that the current number of coven patients in hospital is
8:17 pm
actually lower than a year ago. the health chiefs claims provoked a storm of criticism online. if n h s. c, e o. amanda pritchard is so far out on her own data. she is either utterly incompetent or deliberately trying to mislead and scare the population. either way, shocking and unacceptable. not surprising. the n h s is in a mess and needs reform today and a chest chief executive, amanda pritchett talked complete and utter nonsense about cove. fergus, either she deliberately lied or she has no idea what's going on in hospitals. it is reprehensible that someone in such a powerful position should get it so wrong. they lied to suit the fact that she was warning people that there was a building problem for the n h. s. was lost in this debate and excitement about the numbers which were frankly, just the mistake. there are certain people who will exploit what are mistakes for their own ends to generate bad publicity for treatment. for caving for vaccines.
8:18 pm
making mistakes means that false numbers get out into the public domain and they will be or can be seized upon by people with alteri motives, to generate bad publicity. creat doubt in people's mind when really all it is is just a mistake. and sticking with cove and rushes 2nd city st. petersburg is making vaccinations . compulsory for workers aged over 60 employers are being advised to dismiss anyone refusing a job if it threatens other people's health. the move comes, as russia clocked up the highest daily cove death toll in the world on wednesday for the 1st time since the start of the pandemic are to daniel hawkins takes a closer look. let's just put this news into context. russia. i see a week long, non working week, imposed last week, according to authorities. those measures have broken the very warring trajectory. the numbers of infections and deaths from colbert have stabilized apparently over
8:19 pm
the last few days as a result of those measures. nevertheless, numbers remain very high and measures remain in place on a case by case basis across regions in cities, federal authorities leading up to discretion of regional governors and parliament, the bringing measures they see fit to st. peter's book, the city we're talking about russia's so called northern capital, has seen the 2nd highest number of cases off the moscow. and that's why be as much as all brought in any workers aged over 60. we'll have to get a covert vaccination, all faced the possibility of dismissal, or simply being put on leave without pay off course takes indicate that the elderly over $60.00 are the most vulnerable to the syllabus. and this is why authorities have brought in what seems to be quite a radical measure, but the health authorities, and that is employers that are responsible for the health and safety and well being of the employees. if a citizen isn't employed,
8:20 pm
the issue of vaccination is that their own discretion in the case of working citizens, it is the employer who is responsible for the vaccination of the workforce. as we say though, the trajectory, the very rapid rise in one has been stopped according to authorities, the numbers remain high. the numbers remain worrying just a few days ago. on the 600 russia set a new record for the number of infections across the country. 41000 over 41005. and today, russia set the grim record as we set out for the highest number of deaths over 1200, nearly a 100 of them that here in the capital in moscow and authorities really are trying to get the vaccination drive back on track and experience has shown that these sorts of measures in the long run do encourage people to go and get back said that we've seen queues forming it vaccinations centers in moscow across the country as well, with the over 50 percent, 53 percent. to be precise. all russians having now got at least one component of
8:21 pm
the job, and of course the district show that of course the vaccine is 100 percent effective . no vaccine is those who have been double job, the significantly less likely to suffer a serious illness and death. only 4 percent of those who've had the vaccine or effect in the hospitals at this stage. so authority is very much still trying to get those numbers down. and indeed trying to get the numbers vaccinated up to bring this under control. after harrowing revelations of torture in guantanamo detention facility, we've heard from internationally recognized lawyer nancy hollander. she described the importance of a recent trial which saw a former ca detainee give the 1st public testimony of abuse at the hands of american agents hollander hopes the case described as a stain on the moral fiber of america. will set a precedent for other victims held in u. s. secret jails around the world. nancy hollander is a high powered american criminal defense lawyer,
8:22 pm
best known for representing to guantanamo bay detainees. she also acted for whistleblower chelsea manic, charged in the us with leaking classified data and whose release she won. nancy was portrayed by actress jodie foster in the movie, the more, more italian about a guantanamo detainee held without charge in today's going underground here on r t. she expands on the case of my jeep con, a former prisoner of the cia who claims to have been brutally treated. this is the 1st time that everyone got take here ah, in anywhere what these horrible things that were done. did them go back and look at the 16th century england and you'll know what happened to him basically just horrific. and that's what happened to the others in the black sites also. i mean it's so nothing has happened. i mean, this is just in the past few days, nothing has happened. that senate ripple,
8:23 pm
which is the cia illegal torture in 2014. and he says, when he says clearly, the more he cooperated, the more he was tortured. that's what he says. yes, the whole thing is, so is so too horrible. the senate report makes public some of what happened to our clients, but not everything. and now more is coming out and now i believe it will be more and more difficult for the government of the united states to keep secret what happened to the other people, the $911.00 people and my client. and of course, there are $26.00 men in guantanamo who've never been charged with any crime who have not pleaded guilty. they're just there as if some kind of permanent detention which is totally anathema to the united states based on what his plea was. and what he was charged with their obligation was to sentence him to at least
8:24 pm
25 years 25 to i don't remember the top and 40. they sentenced him to 26 years. but then at the request of his defense counsel, ah, who asked that they asked for clemency. they did. and 7 of the 8 wrote a hand written magnificent letter. saying this was a stain on america. he came, they didn't quite say he was tortured, but they said his what high his treatment came close to the torture in other countries that we don't permit. ah, this is horrible and he should have clemency. ah, is quite an astounding letter. also he has an he is plea deal is secret, so we don't really know what it is and but he could be released soon.
8:25 pm
ah, google has lost an appeal against a more than 2000000000 euro fine imposed by the european commission in 2017 for anti trust practices. the tech giant had been found guilty of favoring its own shopping services. the terrell court finds that by favoring a certain comparison shopping service on its general results pages for more favourable display and positioning while radiating the result from competing comparison services. in those pages by means of rank and algorithms. google departed from competition on the merits. the huge fine was imposed 4 years ago following several complaints by european and u. s. competitors. google slammed the decision at the time as quote wrong on the law, the facts and the economics. however, it complied with ruling and changed the way it's shopping services work. the fine was one of the 3 antitrust penalties, totaling more than 8000000000 euros against google. although today's ruling can
