12:02 pm
brussels. but several western members of the un security council, se barouche's actually trying to destabilize neighboring countries. and allegation that founder cal traction with the russian side. we. the currents, european union members of the security council condemn the orchestrated instrument, delays zation of human beings. or there is a game or for shifting blame now or european union. remember about the reasons why these people are really, are fleeing their countries, which countries destroys, or they are countries. international organizations need to be provided with the immediate and unhindered access to people there in this no problem for journalists for jose food. go to the places where the migrants are placed on. on the contrary, there is no excess for ins, yos for journalists, fall into years to the areas where the $15000.00, according to some estimates polish guards. i see jesus. well,
12:03 pm
here's some of the latest video from the migrant cam posted by the by the russian state border committee. thousands of asylum seekers or in the area right now as they maintain hopes of gaining entry eventually to the european union plan. back in september, poland introduced a state of emergency on its eastern frontier with ballard. bruce effectively banning journalists and ngos from entering the area, thus hindering efforts to report on the crisis and provide aid. instead. 15000 polish soldiers were deployed at the border to ensure the migrants could not enter the country. and as we've been saying earlier, british soldiers surf now being sent that to address the situation as well. all of the corresponded. shoddy, edwards, ashley reports, please. britain and poland, a very close allies, i have a long history of friendship. and so for to now, extending this involvement into what's being seen as a humanitarian crisis is an act of solidarity on support from westminster, of course, and has been extremely vocal about what it sees as the weapon noise ation of
12:04 pm
migrants by the government in better route and actually all use is an effort to destabilize the european union. now, bella reese, of course, obviously denies all of this, but britain now getting involved could be interpreted as an escalation of all of these issues. although. 8 britain is certainly not wanting it to be seen in that way. however, the ministry of defense here in the united kingdom has now announced that a small team of armed forces armed personnel have now been deployed to poland. we're not exactly sure of what small teen really means in terms of the numbers, but they all that to provide engineering support. interesting to see what exactly that engineering support may look like. we've also seen a statement from the polish defense minister as well, who says that troops have now joined the reconnaissance mission with their polish counterparts on the board. and now that basically means ascertaining a certain strategic operations and surveying what options that they may have trying
12:05 pm
to navigate away out of this humanitarian crisis. so it will be really interesting now to see what difference does the british government getting involved really make? well, we see anything really different happening on the board to, particularly for these migrants. there will be interesting to see how the international community a react to it. and crucially, whether they see it as an escalation. i live now to international affairs commentator jonathan steel. good. have you back on all t, how surprising do you find it that britain sending reinforcements not one opponent's geographically closer allies like germany for instance? well, i think it's a way. busy of shipping energy. sure. this is a crisis that nature is involved in, not just poland on its own or poland and the or that written which of course is no longer in the you is part of nature. and so that's what it's trying to show. and so the given that they've chosen britain to come and help them with this, what signal does that send?
12:06 pm
do you think that this situation is not necessarily a migrant crisis as such, but more of a military threat? and i don't think it's a military threat such, i think it's still political, basically want to alex on nutrition once it's dialogue with western countries in nature. and because at the moment he's being due to the integer, to mention benefit dealings with them. and they put in sanctions, so he's trying to get all that and get them to start talking about how to solve migrate body crisis. i come into him in minutes and seeking his consent to changes into improvements. and if it is such as you say, largely symbolic move, how big do you think the contingent might get then? is it going to be needed from all to just sticks a big british military presence, eventually empowerment? well, that depends where the more migrants come in. i think it's a 150 british troops have gone in the engineering troops and polish troops of 15000 . so it's,
12:07 pm
it's really only just more searching for the total number. but if more. busy and more migrant allowed to come to the border and pressing against it, trying to cut their way through. and they may have to be increases on the polish side. i want to make an opponent letting british sold it to the border area, but not humanitarian workers or journalist because of that state of emergency there . what does that tell you about that? the nature of the crisis there? well, i think that is bad. i'm in journalists, should have actually turned certain humanitarian people shouldn't be allowed in. but i'm in the crisis. a few manager and classes on the other side of the board univers site, because that's where the people are still physically in billiards, territory. and they are living in terrible conditions as the winter comes on and temper disoriented, sub 0 at night. and there lot of children and women and elderly people as well as younger men. it it's, it's really a terrible crisis in the galleries, humanitarian people ought to be taking action because the conditions that those of
12:08 pm
families and people are in right now to see more troops on the other side of that barbed wire. fred fence is going to be little short of terrifying for them. what pressure do you think there ought to be? where should it come from? in order to at least lead humanitarian aid in from the e. u side of this? well, it's not aggressive letting me manage in because they'd have to cross the border into the louis. it will be more question of opening the board and allowing me by them to do it. i've always wanted to do which is to cross into the you and get a there. and some of them wanted more move on to germany than to places where there's more likely to find work in the better welcome than in poland. richard still london government in warsaw, which is very anti migrant. you think other not necessarily other countries but other international bodies for the u. n's, most powerful body is struggling to get a united front on this. who else could be trying to apply pressure or help to try and get this resolved before the real depth of winter set in for these people will
12:09 pm
lose dialogue. there have been 2 conversations already on the telephone between johnston, merkel of germany and alexander your christian curly generation leader. and they haven't achieved anything, but there's dialogue. i don't think it's necessary for the u. n. to get involved or any other outside force. it should be solved and in the bounds of urine. as i've got to talk to on this jonathan steele, i and the u. k. have a great weekend. thanks for joining it. thank you. are the movement of people that we're currently seeing at the bellow rooms? poland border is happening elsewhere on a much larger scale. an influx of people fleeing conflicts in the middle east began years ago. and there are now well established routes to get to western europe. and we can have a look at some of those are popular route that starts from pakistan to have canister, and they had through eastern europe before reaching italy and germany. in fact, the united nations says that 75000 migrants of travel through bosnia and
12:10 pm
herzegovina since 2018 artes maria phenomena spoke to a people smuggler who was offering to take migrant center, northern germany robert walden. although i think these people illegally cross the border because their governments did not allow them to went to europe using legal methods. they tried to flee and get as quickly as possible to european countries like germany, switzerland. some of them are on the run for 3 to 4 years. as soon as they cost that border and get into germany, it's a done deal and they are free to travel anywhere within the european union. they don't get caught in germany, but they put them down an asylum centers. and after a while they get permits because they flow their id cards so they can't be deported as german authority. don't know where they come from. basically we were trying to help them find a better life, otherwise they most likely would have been caught, put in some kind of asylum center and then reported back to their home countries. now, as soon as they cross the border and get to germany,
12:11 pm
they are free. it was scary. the 1st time i did this adrenalin fear police drone arrests, a lot of my friends got caught while transporting them. the migrants were sent back and they, my friends, went to prison. most of the activities had done during the night. there were wild animals. he wait and hedges or canals until he cross over that kind of thing. we came across all kinds of migrants from algeria, tuners here, egypt, i don't know, but there were all kinds which we honestly transported from the gel gina to cause in. whereas others trick them stole from them, left them on the side of the road, which we stole the money from them. we got no, it was who. when you look at them, they look mostly poor and don't look like terrorists. i've become involved in this business over time for many years, having known some people wages here, a lo, so it is what it is. so for transporting them, you get paid. well, while simultaneously helping someone, it's $300.00 to $500.00 euros per person while ever joined us to expand on that
12:12 pm
interview and talk about the risks that migrants are prepared to take. i remember how surprised i was to 1st hear that to max over not pays. we'll name to around 80 people across the board and the price is between $3500.00. you were the person that we helped. he didn't tell us the truth, but i just couldn't understand why would he lie? but later on camera, he admitted what he was doing during the interview. he was trying to deliberately diminish these numbers for security reasons. but in all other aspects, facts and details he gave us, i can tell you, he was quite honest with my job in the last few years, at least with the transport migrants along with my team from bridge l. gina, where people had previously transferred them across the serbian border through improvise methods. so we picked them up and transport them obviously at night for some wooded areas. sometimes $510.00, sometimes 20 mostly tech is in and the clergy in region where other people then transported them on the path was free serbia and also for small,
12:13 pm
big boats where they would sneak in. they also sometimes travel by laurie's. they get under a laurie, it's a tough road. they come to techie and also bulgaria, basically through the poor country, so to speak, like o pania of near. and then they go to croatia, germany and from there elsewhere from turkey, they get transported to bulgaria, while bulgaria is in the european union. if they get caught there, they get sent back to turkey because there are no asylum laws allowing them to stay there legally. so they come here because it's easy to migrate from here to the european union. yes, understand it's a web covering quite a significant part of the world. and in old trends, countries let's say, from pakistan to germany, you have to understand there are people like mac that you as a migrant have to go and pay as we heard the you and things that something like 70000 people have gone through that country in order to try to get to western europe. why is that? why is it such a popular route? first,
12:14 pm
it's the shortest possible way to get to be today. but there is another reason both . he's also famous for being loyal to these kind of people because of their pat, of its past, because they still remember how does it feel to do refugee and how does it feel run away from your roads motherland. the war there was over more than 25 years ago, but they still remember it. and i can stand a level of society. people still sympathized with refugees and migrants. and another reason, the part from the countries past in the present, the reason the very high level of corruption and very complicated political system and a very high unemployment rate and all day is altogether push so many youngsters down the criminal business while you were filming. and pause you saw managed to speak to migrant student, you who sort of going through that trying to get to western europe and heard 1st time their experience most if you are legal migrant and you want to go to europe, you have basically 2 options to go to people like max,
12:15 pm
but that's in case you have money. another option is to do it on your own. and i mean, that's risk care, that's more dangerous. you can get caught and no one can give you any guarantee that you will ever succeed. but still, many people choose this 2nd option because they don't have money. they don't have a choice. we often take us on his normal journey from a how he usually tastes migrants, you know, to the equation border out within the walls. and on the way there, while we would just try the, we saw several groups of micros and we stopped twice. and 1st group was from nissan . they left the country 4 months ago, right before the talib one came to power there. and another group was from pakistan, they were like 20 people there. i was, i was like shocked. and we stopped and talked. and 1st i was so surprised that they were not hiding and asked why. and they told us they have the official refugee paper is given to them by the balls and authorities. speaking about how loyal this
12:16 pm
country is for these people. so if they try to cross the board and they get deported, they can only be deported. back to bosnia, so they don't have to do the whole journey from scratch from pakistan. are you going, going to tell you the value? yeah. how many did you try? 6 times please just invoice and then you try again. so you have been walking on the title, when did you leave bucket time before you left you 2 years ago and you still want to go, i don't know. i don't the one, the one not going you in bosnia filming for new documentary. yeah. tell us more about that. we were filming a documentary about one serbian guy living in serbian part of both. now, who long time ago wanted to become a priest, but became
12:17 pm
a soldier and that because the war came to his motherland and he had to defend his family and his country basically. but after the war was over, more than 25 years ago, he was still looking for it somehow. and this is how he ended up working for companies like black water and how he started to leveling to places like iraq, afghanistan, g, booty, sri lankan, all all the countries. and many of them in africa, a, with the so called private security emissions. so it's very motion. oh, very actually said documentary about this person. he that he explained to us that he was pushed 1st to doing that to be a soldier. but after that he got kind of like war addiction. so slow commentary. but he, him, but the right at least 2 bigger messages that i want to send out 1st is that wars a so bad, but the situation in postwar zones and post conflict countries is sometimes even
12:18 pm
more dramatic. and that should be addressed. and another message which is especially important for me as a piece advocate, is that there are so many wars and conflicts in more than world that people like our main character, whose name is dushan, will hardly be left jobless any time soon. and that is very sad a, another news to day germany 1st and the covert situation there is taken a grim turn as infection rates continued to break national record with the country reporting its highest daily number of new corona virus cases. since the pandemic began, hospitals there are increasingly under pressure was the authority calling for urgent act action to be taken. reporting next from berlin is peter oliver. grim, grim figures have been coming out of germany over the last 48 hours. really, they've been pretty grim figures for the last few weeks. mark is zada, the leader of the state of bavaria. he's seen expressing serious concern about the
12:19 pm
number of hospital admissions that we've had across germany. saying that the health care system is really creating to its breaking point, practiced. the fact is that the hospitals are full. they are the limits, both in terms of the workload and the emotional situation. that is why it's important that we act now. and we've also heard from yen spahn, the german health minister of interim health minister. we still don't have a new government here. exactly yet. begin spawn. has said the free coven test will be reintroduced. now they were done away with it a little while ago. and once they were gotten rid of, we saw the numbers start to go up because it had be very easy for german to get to test. if you thought you may have any particular issues. that was one on almost every corner. you go and you get it done was done in around 1015 minutes. they were then taken away. you could to get test done, but you had to pay for them. and we've seen numbers rise again. this isn't just
12:20 pm
a german issue though. we're also seeing situations in austria and the netherlands as well, severely restricting the freedoms of those who cannot prove if they've been vaccinated, or in some cases, that they've recovered from coven 19. now in germany, the vaccination rate is around 67 percent that's lower considerably than the 75 percent. that health experts have said, countries need to, or populations need to meet in order for the vaccination to be as successful as it can be. often the laga, even if the situation is different, because so many are vaccinated, it is still not good, especially because not enough citizens have taken advantage of the availability of the vaccine. and that's why we have to continue to be careful. right, well we're being told here in germany to avoid large events and limit contact. certainly all situations that would be not advised if you listen to what the, the robert cock institute about to say about limiting the amount of contact and limiting the possibility of catching cove. it as case numbers rise here in germany
12:21 pm
significantly was peter mentioned their neighboring austria is also suffering reco daily cove cases, prompting the government to bring in special restrictions, but only for the unvaccinated. i don't see why 2 thirds should lose their freedom, because one 3rd is dithering. 4 meats, clear that there should be no log down for the vaccinated out of solidarity for the unvaccinated. from monday then they'll be tough restrictions for unvaccinated people in austria's to hardest head regions. that means they'll only be allowed to leave their homes for essential reasons, such as to buy groceries. go to work all, see a doctor, the parliaments to decide on the nationwide use of such measures on sunday. elsewhere round the world are the moves being taken in singapore, for example, covey. patients who decline the job will have to pay for their own medical bill. regions in germany and limiting restaurants, bars and clubs to only those have been inoculated. we've recently recovered from
12:22 pm
the disease in greece, visitors to restaurants, state services, banks must present vaccination certificates or negative test results. here in russia, in st. petersburg, the cities imposing mandatory vaccinations on senior citizens that something we've all been discussing. the impact of these measures with medical and social expert will be a better way to convince people to another to protect themselves, but also protect others. we emphasize again an infection control measures and being sensible. no, so i am safe distance and so i just feel that the whole force compulsory and takes it to another level. it just takes away the choice. and i think that the people are in the county or the restrictions largely based on trying to prevent transmission or just trying to get the numbers up to make sure more people are vaccinated. as they say circulating society. no, we want to get the numbers off because if you get the numbers up a number of positive benefits, a crew one,
12:23 pm
the person is protected from severe illness and dine. that's one second. they're most unlikely to end up in the hospital. and then the 3rd, a immunized person is infectious. for a computer crime, what we're seeing is a lot of confusion in maybe even some moral panic and hysteria that's coming from a lot of these bubbles and communities that are sharing a concerns about the fears of not being vaccinated or the fears are being vaccinated. i'm way still vulnerable and in our places what like, you know, i'm patients have visitors come in, you know, there's lots of people coming in to the hospital and i think is quite unfair to just target those, those health care work because you know and force it in i think a lot of it, when we not really, i mean i went to and see vaccine. you know, we can see the importance of having to vaccine. however, i think it just going to
12:24 pm
a different level. when is compulsory in sensitive places. sometimes one ruble, patients severely, clinically wonderful, etc. we've got to off, but you are safe to manage them. and therefore, if you are operating in that area, you've got to be immunized. certainly, i don't know how many my students are vaccinated or not at universities in the u. k . don't really like sharing that information. it's going to create a scenario where these passports and these documents really have us looking one way or another at somebody and the social ramifications of this, including the immense inequalities that could come from the treatment of each other . because of these laws and whether people conform or not, i have been talking to a lot of health care workers who have been hesitant about vaccines. a lot of them from menacing homes. and i gave them of my time effort and energy, showing them how the vaccine works, what it does, what it doesn't do, how to protect them, and in the end,
12:25 pm
most of them went on to get immunized. so we need to do our homework of inform, advise, educate as well, but went county where we saw so some of the anger from buquet care home workers about being told by politicians to get a vaccination. but that will be people who remember back to last spring and the i was fatality numbers in u. k. k. homes who are going to be thinking, if i'm putting my relative in these care homes, i want people to be vaccinated that going to be where it may be. find that behavior selfish? yes, i expect care workers to be immunized because unfortunately, this corona virus can be infectious and could kill the elderly people without your needs. on the day when you were infectious, we have to be careful to not let cove it once again. mass, a lot of the social issues that are going on in society that have been a long time affecting people, causing deaths, housing, long time ambulance weights. there are lots of issues that are underlying this. are
12:26 pm
we it just like co overtake here with a government instead of mandatory a cove? it vaccinations. what would you do to convince people to get a job is not so much about convincing people being and people it be mandatory. i think it's more about giving people the choice and given them all the information that they require and letting them have the choice. front authorities are reportedly investigating an alleged re patsy elise, a palace after a female soldier accused a colleague of salt. charlotte davinsky has the story present. michael has made tackling violence against women, a key corner stone, off his presidency. so he will be pretty embarrassed at the moment of these revelations that this serious sexual assault may have occurred. that the elisa palace, what we know so far is that there is a female soldier who's accused a colleague of hers, a male soldier who also worked at the eliza of attacking her back at the end of
12:27 pm
june, beginning of july. we know she made the complaint on july 1st to the police, and then that this judicial investigation into this serious alleged sexual assault was opened about 2 weeks later on july 12th, we understand the 2 soldiers worked together on a day to day basis. and this alleged rape took place off for a party, a party. the president mac on had attended himself, but we understand he had left several hours before this alleged sexual incident had taken place at now there are reports at the elisa was made aware of this pretty quickly and has since been dealing with this with extreme discreet meant our we understand that there has been advice, are listening, and they also accompanied the female soldier in making this complaint. but there has been no official comment from the elisa palace, the presidential palace where president macklin lives here. there's also been no comment from the ministry of the armed forces in regards to this,
12:28 pm
but we understand that a rape investigation has also been opened by the armed forces. we understand the soldier who's been accused of carrying out that sexual felt as offense, has been suspended and at the moment is being treated as a witness in this judicial investigation. which means that they haven't been charged to date with any offense. however, what this will raise is questions once again about the decision by the elisa, less to hide this under the carpet, to sweep it under the carpet rather than being public about this very serious incident. that is said to have occurred under the noses at the elisa palace just a few years ago. or you may remember the case of alexandra panella. this is a security 8, a former security aide at present. mack on who just recently was found guilty of assaulting protesters at
12:29 pm
a protest back in around 2018. at the time the uneasy palace was made aware of that, but it decided not to reveal that information to the price. instead, a was leaked in the press several months later, and this once again begs the same sort of question as to why this information has been kept under wraps. and many b be wondering whether the alea's a palace has indeed not learned its lessons from the past. and that your news for now, boom bust is on the way next here. and i'll tell you after which i'll be here to update you on the storage. we're tracking here in the moscow newsroom for albert, thanks for water. oh
12:30 pm
ah, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safe? isolation or community? are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? direct? what is true? what is faith? in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. how is the economy working for you? we are told this is the time of the great reset and build back better. what does this mean to you? how does the green new deal play into this?
