time that everyone got to here in anywhere. what these horrible things were done to them. now, i believe that will be more and more difficult for the government, the united states to keep secret what happened to the other people ah, chromecast, and live direct. more studios in moscow, this is our to international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us. right now, the migrant crisis shows no sign of abating at the border between poland and bell roost were thousands, have been camping in harsh conditions for the last 2 nights. but as the political situation heats up, the weather is only getting colder and among those sacrificing basic comforts in their efforts to find a better lie far families. these are some of the pictures from the border camp, adding to the migrants of plight,
9:02 pm
food and water supplies are said to be running low, while many are trying to keep warm and damp sleeping bags. people have spent the day collecting wood for fires. we spoke to some of those in the camp including a disabled boy who was hoping to get treatment in the u. who you want to be when you grow old the day, cause i was born with the disease in his legs. we tried very hard to get treatment abroad, but we didn't get to mission to leave the country. we received an offer for treatment from germany, but we were not allowed to leave. could the sound 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 prosthesis. 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 money 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
9:03 pm
a disability. what's your favorite game to play for loss? of course you would like to go and play football side with with these trustees his legs. 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 it. 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 around 10000 more are believed to be elsewhere in bella, luce, and heading towards the frontier to try and enter the u. many. refugees at the camp say they are now lacking the most basic supplies. on tuesday, evening, humanitarian organizations did manage to deliver some aid, including food, water, warm, blankets, and clothes,
9:04 pm
and more arrived on wednesday. correspondent konstantin ross. cough is there for us . hundreds of migrants have gathered to get free food delivered by val, russian volunteers and the local red cross. this is much needed help for these refugees. a stuck here at the polish of belarus 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 cam fires. let's have a look at the scene here, and you can see lot of cam fires. they are now never stop burning because david cam
9:05 pm
crucial for these people's survival. of course, cold and food deprivation is an extremely dangerous mix. recently we came across a boy who was barely responsive, his mother told us he couldn't get absence 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 side. 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. a number of de la russian politicians and
9:06 pm
civil activists also took part and delivering supplies to the migrants. as constantine just mentioned, there several tons of humanitarian aid have been provided so far. from the local branch of the red cross most has been donated by bella, russian producers and companies. ambulance crews are also at the campus. 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 . the polish authorities allowed journalists and human rights organizations to enter the border area from the east side or to charlotte. davinsky has more on this part of the story. 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 have been humanitarian assistance able to get through,
9:07 pm
but it's not very much. and that's why these poor nobel prize winners have written this open left it now demanding that humanitarian organizations have regular access to help out. the polish government imposed the state of emergency on the buddhist trip when poland and bela bruce 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
9:08 pm
down on the reforms. and that is withholding billions of years in coverage recovery funds appears that it's ready to open the right, 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. that 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,
9:09 pm
the european commission and the central european governments. i'm interested to keep the refugees away from central europe, so they will edit poland onto the x. and after that, of course, that will be confrontation again. metropolitan 6, which is done and memorial is contra dictionary because on april we have international law and 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 whole european union, not to have this people, so that mall is a political decision to shock the people along so that they tell the relatives who i'm maybe still at home. don't come here is cindy, but it's a reality. the you is revealing its sense of superiority in its approach to the migrant crisis on the polish bell. russian border. so says russia's foreign
9:10 pm
minister, making that accusation as he met his bell russian counterpart here in moscow. it come when you have a shoes of the polish unless lenience didn't come to us asking for help. they enjoy their own sense of 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,
9:11 pm
minsk continues to receive threats of further isolation and more punishment in the form of sanctions. now i asked the foreign ministers what they make of the way some senior polish officials and commentators began drawing parallels 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. in polish history, and this was the response by sir elaborate virginia street. in political discussions, the west is increasingly reverting to historical examples in 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 william and reflect and inadequacy. the logic of the people sang them us. it only means that the so called young europeans
9:12 pm
continue to pull europe towards escalating confrontations with both belarus and russia. i hope 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 officials has been the same since they're very outbreak of the crisis. that is, that means is trying to wage a 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 se, here's what else, the bell russia 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,
9:13 pm
some unacceptable steps. it is an absolutely intolerable approach. there must be dialogue, but they have driven themself so far into a corner that they cannot get out of it. and then it happened that they did not 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 at national health service staff in england will have to be fully vaccinated against covered or face losing their jobs. the plans have been outlined by the government, although estimate suggests more than 120000 health and social care workers could now quit over the issue or tease shot it,
9:14 pm
which dusty has sort. all you say that's usually concerning the sector that's already so short staffed an impact assessment 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 as i did target, the health secretary insist weighing up the pros and cons, the pros of keeping people say, actually tipped 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 start 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 if they feel po was threatened and ultimately forced into
9:15 pm
this policy. now trade union speaking on behalf of many of the and h as professionals 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 sledgehammer on this using the law . well, 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 an imposing at the law 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 vacillated versus only pulls around $50000.00 unvaccinated people when they come 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. 7 in social care to be double vaccinated,
9:16 pm
it actually later this week on thursday and still that policy with an out because. a we've actually seen a gradual increase of people coming back. they did, but a huge amount of people have again, entirely left to the sector. so it seems like there is a face of 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 to this up and it just stop professional home health service already on it . the the government said it wants to keep people say, well. 2 i want to create and they end up doing the opposite. meanwhile, the head of the n h. s. england has faced accusations of trying to scare people into getting vaccinated. that was after she claimed current covered hospital admissions. we're searching 14 times the number of people in hospital with it that
9:17 pm
we saw this time last year. and we've also had a record number of a attendance is 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 actually lower than a year ago. the health chiefs claims provoked a storm of criticism online. if any chance, seo, amanda prichard 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's her wrong. they lie to suit the fact that she was warning people that there was
9:18 pm
a building problem for the n h. s. was lost in this debate and excitement about the numbers which were frankly, just a mistake. there are certain people who will exploit what are mistakes for their own ends to generate bad publicity for treatment for cave. it for vaccines 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, create doubts in people's mind when really all it is, is just a mistake. staying with cove in russia, the 2nd city st. petersburg is making vaccinations. compulsory for workers aged over 60 employers are being advised to dismiss any one 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 ortiz, daniel hawkins, takes
9:19 pm
a closer look. let's just put this news into context. russia, as seen a week long non working, we composed last week, according to authorities. those measures have broken the very warring trajectory, the numbers of infections and death from covert that have stabilized apparently over the last 2 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 to bring in measures they see fit to st. petersburg, 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 the, as much as all brought in any workers aisd over 60, will have to get a cobra vaccination or face the possibility of dismissal, or simply being put on leave without pay off course. next,
9:20 pm
indicate that the elderly over 60, 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 see if that is employers that are responsible for the health and safety and well being of their employees. if a citizen is unemployed, the issue of vaccination is that their own discretion and the keys of working citizens. it is the employer who is responsible for the vaccination of the workforce. as we say though, that was trajectory, the very rapid rise in one has been stopped according to authority. the numbers remain high. the numbers remain worrying just a few days ago. on the 6th of november, russia set a new record for the number of infections across the country. 41000 over 41000 in fact. 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
9:21 pm
to get the vaccination drive back on track and experience has shown that these sorts of measure is 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 the job. and of course, statistics show that of course, the vaccine is not 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 are effective hospitals at this stage. so authority is very much still trying to get those numbers down. and indeed trying to get the numbers the vaccinate it up to bring this under control. after harrowing revelations of torture in the guantanamo detention facility, we've heard from internationally recognized lawyer nancy hollander. she describes the importance of
9:22 pm
a recent trial which saw the former ca detain me. 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 an u. s. secret jails around the world. nancy hollander is a high powered american criminal defense lawyer, best known for representing to guantanamo bay detainees. she also acted for whistle blower. chelsea manning charged in the us with leaking classified data and whose release she won. nancy was portrayed by actress jodie foster, in the movie, more canyon about a guantanamo detainees held without charge. now in today's going underground here on r t, she expands on the case of magic khan, a former prisoner of the ca, who claims to have been brutally treated. this is the 1st time that everyone got to hear, ah,
9:23 pm
in anywhere what these horrible things 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, 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,
9:24 pm
there are $26.00 men in guantanamo who 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 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 he,
9:25 pm
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. is quite an astounding letter. also he has and he, his plea deal is secret. so we don't really know what it is and, but he could be released soon. the 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 federal court finds that by favor in its own comparison shopping service on its general results pages for more favourable display and positioning, while redgate and the result from competing comparison services. in those pages, by means of rank and algorithms. google departed from competition on the merits.
9:26 pm
the huge find 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 the ruling and changed the way it's shopping services work. the fine was one of the 3 anti trust penalties, totaling more than 8000000000 euros against google. although today's ruling can still be appealed at the european court of justice, the blocks highest court. meanwhile, the you is working on toughening its legislation to ensure for competition on its territory. the digital markets act, if approved, would restrict self preferences and target advertising in an effort to bring more privacy to users. internet law expert and social media lawyer cohen believes google will now face further legal action. following this, you really, google is a been investing huge amount of money in law being in the u. r n. there they could
9:27 pm
be a situation where the decision is being overdone, on the basis of google lobbying. but my belief here is that this is 8 for google, and from now on that it opens the flood gate to other type of legal action or not just wouldn't be you, but also in the us. in also it will support those companies that had been damage and arm by google's anti competitive be ever or that is a from in this our, i will be back with your headlines and about 32 and a half minutes. stay with us. this is our to international ah, they're starting to say things like, we're gonna do exactly what we've done here at the u. s. government by blowing trillions of dollars on white elephants on billing da goals,
9:28 pm
and somehow that's going to cure inflation. of course, it's just going to exacerbate in place and there this is a recipe for, for more inflation. so it's financial literacy mixed with state sponsored propaganda over there at the major american networks with time action or what you're going underground coming up with the show as you can. disraeli forces continue to kill those protesting against the legal settlements. we
9:29 pm
ask a palestinian activist, allegedly hacked by israeli, and a so group, spyware. what options are left to palestinians when even peaceful resistance is met with repression and view a discretion advised after a ledger. torture is described cia black sites in court for the 1st time. we ask the guantanamo lawyer played by oscar winning. jodie foster about us torture, and whether the biden administration uses it today, all the similar going up in today's going underground. but for us to the revelation to the israeli on a so group whose spyware is notorious for allegedly being used by the saudis to spy on mud. a journalist jamarcus showed use family, all sorts of like spyware used on palestinian activists. one of the groups julie spied on is the design center for research and development is leader who, by allah, beauty joins me now from ramallah in palestine. thank you so much bye for coming on . i know jeff bezos of amazon, now there was a report, said to you in rapid jazz about his phone being hijacked by this israeli spyware. i'm just here to the actual tells us you've been hacked by it. but what was your
