a v okay, confirms it has deployed troops to poland border with bellows for potential assistance to warsaw to strengthen the frontier that thousands of migrants remain camped out in dire conditions. they're hoping to enter the amid the build up of asylum seekers on the boilers, poland border r t speaks with a people smuggler who takes migrants into western europe and gives us an exclusive insight into the shady protest. they don't get cold and germany put, they put them down in asylum centers and after a while they get permits because they flow the id cards so they can't be to pull it as gym and authorities don't know where they come from. and rising cobra cases in austria see nationwide restrictions re imposed but only for the vaccine. and it is by far not the only company to target those who refuse the job. we discussed the
8:01 pm
ramifications. we know anti vaccine. you know, we can see the importance of having the vaccines. however, i think it just going to different level wayne is compulsory. i expect to care what this could be immunized, so we have to be careful to not let coded once again mass a lot of the social issues that are going on ah, a broadcasting live direct from our studios in moscow. this is our to international . i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us. now, britain has confirmed it is sent to a group of soldiers to the poland fellers frontier in a deal with warsaw. the move occurs amid an escalating stand off over migrants that has already reached the level of the un security council. belarus is accusing poland endless awaiting of using the crisis to get extra funding from brussels. but several western members of the un security council,
8:02 pm
se belarus is actually trying to destabilize neighboring countries. that's an accusation that found little traction with russia. we, the current european union members of the security council condemn the august creative instrumental is ation of human beings. there is a game of shifting glee and now by your union, remember about the reasons why these people are really fleeing their countries, which countries destroyed their countries. international organizations need to be provided with immediate and unhindered access to people there in this no problem for journalists for jose for go to the places where the migraines placed on the country. there is no axis for jose for journalists, fall in tears to the areas where the $15000.00, according to some estimates polish guards. i see jesus. this is some of the latest video from the migrant camp, posted by the bell. russian state border committee. thousands of asylum seekers are
8:03 pm
in the area as they maintain hopes of granting entry to the you pull in to introduce the state of emergency on its eastern frontier with bellows in september . that effectively banded journalist and, and jose from entering the area, thus hindering efforts to report on crisis and provide aid instead, 15000 polish soldiers were deployed to ensure the migrants didn't cross the border . and as i said earlier, british troops have now been sent there to address the situation as well. more than that from our london correspondent charges. edwards dusty. haley, 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 and support from westminster. of course, part of has been extremely vocal about what it sees as the weapon noise ation of migrants buying the government in better route and actually all uses an effort to
8:04 pm
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 minister 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 to recognizance mission with their polish counterparts on the board. and now that basically means ascertaining certain strategic operations and surveying what options that they may have trying to navigate away out of this humanitarian crisis. so it will be really interesting now
8:05 pm
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 that will be interesting to see how the international community react to it. and crucially, whether they see it as an escalation, former british euro and p, paul nuttall, says the u. k. is protecting its own interests by getting involved. hi, natalie. it will be about the bolstering of the, the board defense, i suspect, an offering engineering support. but equally, i think it will send out a message to britain, i believe on how to talk to miss bye. because when many of these, my kids have been interviewed, they said that britain will be the final destination. and obviously we have a problem with the moment which is going on in the channel, which i was argue is just as bad as what was going on on the polish better russian bulk of these my going to and i want to polish pollution that many of them are going to make their way to britain. they will no doubt use the channel these as
8:06 pm
well. so britain does have a talk in miss by the people who is suffering at the moment of those migrants. and there needs to be people getting around the table and solving this issue before when to really kicks in and in the fontes will start piling. the movement of people we are currently seeing at the beller in poland border is happening elsewhere on a much larger scale. an influx of people fleeing conflicts in the middle east began years ago. and here are, there are now some established, well established routes to get to western europe. let's have a look at some of those right now. they popular migrant root starts from pakistan and afghanistan. they then head through eastern europe before reaching italy and germany. in fact, the when says that 75000 migrants have traveled through bosnia and herzegovina since 2018 or chief maria. phenomenal, spoke to people smuggler was offering to take migrants into northern germany. rogers through rather i think these people illegally across the board because that governments did not allow them 20 europe using legal methods. they tried to flee
8:07 pm
and as quickly as possible to europe in countries like germany, switzerland. some of them are on the run for 3 to 4 years. as soon as they cross the 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 in asylum centers and for a while to get permits because they flow the 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 of why they most likely would have been caught, put in some kind of asylum center and then deported back to their home countries. now, as soon as they cross the border and get to germany, they are free. it was scary. the 1st time i did this adrenalin fear, police drone arrests, a lot of my friends got caught, well transporting them. my going to send back, and they, my friends went to prison. most of the activities had done during the night. there are a wild animals, he white and hedges or canals until you cross over. that kind of thing. we came
8:08 pm
across all kinds of migrants from algeria to new egypt. i don't know, but there were all kinds which we honestly transported from the jill gina to cause in. whereas others trick them stole from them. some on the side of the road, which we stole the money from them. we can't know it was who, when you look at them, they look mostly poor and don't look like terrorists of 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 some one, it's $300.00 to $500.00 euros per person. earlier, maria joined andrew farmer to expand on that interview and talk about the risks that migrants are prepared to take. i remember how surprised i was to 1st hear that to max of is not his real name to go around any people across the border and that the price is between 30500. you were as the person we felt he didn't tell us the
8:09 pm
truth, but i just couldn't understand why would he lie? but later off camera, he admitted what he was doing during the interview. he was trying to deliberately diminish these numbers for security reasons and but in all other aspects, facts and details he gave us, i can tell you, he was quite honest. my job in the last few years at least was to transport migrants along with my team from bridge l. gina where people had previously transferred them across the serbian border through improvised methods. so we picked them up and transport them, obviously at night through some wooded areas. sometimes 510, sometimes 20, mostly sick is in and the clergy in a region where other people then transported the mom, the path was for serbia and also through small or 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 turkey and also bulgaria, basically through the poor country, so to speak, like albania, bosnia and then they go to croatia, germany and from there elsewhere. from turkey,
8:10 pm
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. we have to understand that whose web covering quite a significant part of the world. and in all trends of countries, let's say from pakistan to germany, you have to understand there are people like macs that you as a migrant have to go and pay as we heard the un things, something like 70000 people have gone through that country in order to try and get to western europe. why is that? why is it such a popular root? first is the shortest possible way to get to be today. but there is another reason both and is 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 be refugee and how does it feel run
8:11 pm
away from your road motherland. the war there was over more than 25 years ago, but they still remember it. and i can say in a level of, of talking to people still sympathized with refugees and migrant. 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 pushed so many youngsters down the criminal business. while you were filming impulse, and you saw or 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 and legal migrant and you want to go to europe, you have basically 2 options to go to people like macs, but that's in case you have money. another option is to do it on your own. and i mean that's re scary, 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 other choice. we ask max to take us on his normal journey from a to b,
8:12 pm
just how he usually takes migrants, you know, to the equation border within bosnia. and on the way there, while we would just try the, we saw several groups of migrants and we stopped twice. and 1st group was from nissan. they left the country 4 months ago, right before the taliban came to power there. and another group was from pakistan. and 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 in us and why. and they told us they have the official refugee paper is given to them by the boss and authorities. speaking about how loyal this country is to these people. so if they try to cross the board and they get deported, they can only be pulled back to bosnia. so they don't have to do this whole journey from scratch from pakistan. are you going, going to tell you the value?
8:13 pm
no idea how many trying 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 becky, 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 turban guy living in serbian part of both now who long time ago wants to become a priest, but became 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
8:14 pm
companies like black water and how he started to leveling to places like iraq, afghanistan, g, booty, israel, long and all, all the countries. many of them in africa with so called private security missions . so it's very emotional, 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 wor, addiction, so it's a lot of money, but he, him, but the raw, at least 2 bigger messages that i want to send. first is that wars are so bad. but the situation in postwar, those and post conflict countries is sometimes even more dramatic and that should be addressed. and another message was, 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 to sion will hardly be left
8:15 pm
jobless anytime soon. and that is very sad outside of the problems on the bell, russian border to russian paratroopers on a joint maneuver in the region died on friday when their parachutes became tangled . the russian defense ministry said a sudden gust of wind during a jump forced the 2 to collide, leaving their parachutes unable to function correctly. one of the men activated his reserve shoot, but he was already too close to the ground. both men from a group of 250 russian paratroopers died of their injuries in the hospital. on 2 other news now, germany in the current situation there has taken a bleak turn as infection rates continue to break national records. that's as the country reports, its highest daily number of new corona viruses can run a virus cases. excuse me. since the panoramic began, hospitals are increasingly under pressure and authorities are calling for urgent action as our teeth peer over reports from berlin. grim grim figures have been
8:16 pm
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 states of bavaria. he's been expressing serious concern about the number of hospital admissions that we've had across germany, saying that the health care system is really creaking to its breaking point. fact is, 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. 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. but again, spawn has said that free coven tests 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 been very easy for german to get a test. if you thought you may have any particular issues,
8:17 pm
there was one on almost every corner. you go and you get it done, it was done, and around 1015 minutes, they were then taken away. you could still get tests done, but you have to pay for them. and we've seen numbers rise again. this isn't just 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. while we're being told here in germany, to avoid large events and limit contact,
8:18 pm
certainly all situations that would be not advise to listen to what the robot cock institutes have up to say about limiting the amounts of contact and limiting the possibility of catching cove. it is case numbers rise here in germany significantly . as peter just mentioned to austria is also suffering record daily covered cases, prompting the government to bring in special restrictions, but only for the unvaccinated. i don't see why to, sir, it should lose their freedom because one 3rd is dithering. for me, it's clear that there should be no log down for the vaccinated out of sally dirty for the unvaccinated. from monday there will be tough restrictions for unvaccinated people in austria as to hardest hit region. so that means that they will only be allowed to leave their homes for essential reasons, such as to buy groceries, see a doctor, or go to work. and parliament will decide on sunday, on the nationwide in possession of such measures elsewhere around the world. other
8:19 pm
moves being taken in singapore, for example, coven, patients who decline the job will have to pay for their own medical bills. regions in germany are limiting restaurants, bars and clubs to only those who are inoculated or have recently recovered from the disease in greece. visitors to restaurants, state services, and banks must present vaccination certificates or negative test results. while here in russia, the city of st. petersburg is imposing mandatory vaccinations for senior citizens restrictions all around in the netherlands zone where the violent protests followed the announcement that a partial lockdown is being imposed from sunday. it will last at least 3 weeks. i mean curfews in public places, early closing for hospitality and non essential businesses and no more than 4 guests in gatherings at home on thursday than other ones logged its highest daily infection rates since append to make began with countries attempt varying degrees of locked downs. my colleague column bray discussed with medical and social experts, the impact of targeting non vaccinated citizens would be
8:20 pm
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 is to another level. it just takes away the choice. and i think that the people are in the can 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 of crew one, the person is protected from severe illness and dying. 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 short period of time. where we're seeing is
8:21 pm
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 in, in our places. what like, you know, 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 talk in 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 t vaccine, you know, we can see the importance of having the vaccine. however, i think you're just going to different level wayne is compulsory insensitive places . sometimes one ruble, patients severely, clinically wonderful, etc. we've got to ask that 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. and you
8:22 pm
can 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, most of them went on to get immunized. so we need to do our homework of inform, advised educate as well. but when connie we, we saw so some of the anger from u. k. care home workers about being told by politicians to get a vaccination. but there will be people who remember back to last spring and the i
8:23 pm
was fatality numbers in u. k. cow homes who are going to be thinking, if i'm putting my relative in these care homes, i want people to be vaccinated, they're going to be worried and maybe 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 knowing on the day 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, causing long time ambulance weights. there are lots of issues that are underlying this. are we just like coven overtake? if you were the government instead of mandatory a coven 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
8:24 pm
that they require and letting them have the choice. inflation in the u. s. has accelerated to its highest level in more than 30 years. supply chain bottlenecks covered restrictions and increasing energy prices are all adding to household costs ahead of the winter. president biden has ordered that energy prices are reduced and has blamed rising prices on opec for not producing enough oil. although in the same breath, he wants to shut down oil pipelines in his country over environmental concerns with commentary. here's our to south sky taylor. the holiday season is upon us. but if americans were hoping for abundance giving c store a christmas tree, linton with presents no luck a supply chain crisis is this his grin bringing mat shortages? delivery delays on record breaking inflation. inflation hurts americans pocket books and reversing this trend is a top priority for me, the largest share of the increase in prices and this report is due to rising energy
8:25 pm
costs. so the president would be tang king ratings and angry voters have conveniently found the guilty party energy. and it's true that prices have thought, in fact, a 3rd of american pact to skip a cut back on assess. he's like food medicine to pay that energy bills in recent months. you'd think that wouldn't you, that it wouldn't be the best time to even talk about shopping yet to nata pipeline . as we enter the winter months and temperatures drop across the midwest, the termination of the michigan o pipeline we lumped outwardly further exacerbate shortages and price increases in home heating fuels. that's time when americans are already facing rapidly rising energy prices steep home heating cos, global supply shortages and skyrocketing gas prices. tuffy latest and a long line of not in fans of biden's energy policy. no pipelines and no drilling permits revoked and leases suspended. the white house has gone green,
8:26 pm
even if that means carrying off thousands of jobs and even your citizens to shiver . but instead of taking ownership for that part of town, the full out now the president i'm his people are pointing a finger elsewhere. oil is a global market, it is controlled by a card town and they made a decision yesterday that they were not going to increase beyond what they were already planning. never mind that america has enough supply in its own backyard to turn out some barrels and bring down those prices bite and just won't turn on the taps. but opec should buy does not to blame for cold winter opec. his biden's not responsible view, struggling to pay the bills opec his just as well. he explained it to us otherwise it all so quite complicated, isn't it? like the supply chain? oh, well, i'd explain it to you, but you just wouldn't understand. you hear a lot about to supply change in the news, but frankly, not
8:27 pm
a lot of people are clear. have a clear understanding whether they have a ph. d here. they didn't go to school about how a supply chain works. the problem is we did not have fuel in american cables only with smart or strong. no, he's doing very, very bad job. do you take offense at job id calling american people stupid, or that there is no supply crisis. there's no border crisis. i do, i take a sense of that because we see it. we live here in texas, the space. it's an insult to the american intelligence and his press secretary, according to them, there is no crisis, but if there is a crisis, just because we ordered too much on line, would tell him to stop being political to start thinking about americans and the good for america i don't see how more in, if you could get, i think that's just
8:28 pm
a typical political. why get out of a problem? the blame game, a classic can any politicians playbook and perfect for times of trouble? you know, like when your party was humiliated in the recent elections, you're racing to be crowned the least popular president and history. and now people can't even afford a woman posey thanksgiving. and you're not even a year into presidency. major said back at the un climate conference participants failed to agree on the final statement by fridays deadline and canceled their joint news conference among the sticking points in europe. a split on whether nuclear power should be called eco friendly. germany is leading the opposition to atomic energy, calling it too expensive and inefficient at preventing climate change. but front in france and a group of 7 eastern european states, insist that without nuclear, the block will fail in its goal to become carbon neutral by the year 2050.
8:29 pm
meanwhile, the u. k. government with a group of investors will spend an additional $400000000.00 pounds on new reactors, and the french president says his country will also build more nuclear plants to reduce dependence on energy supplies from abroad. science professor gene, bruce mont says he's not surprised that there's a lack of consensus within europe. are you going to get all these european countries that have different interests? and he's still, he's and son, judie, there's only 120 again begin the french speaking about and even on climate. the dutch speaking again with the, with the s. so it's important and i think the german position is going to be based on that because they have been opening the plans and using gas and so on. to substitute for nicky, i know they're not doing everything read so good. you know, i mean, now using, you know, cabin anything happens on the east coast,
8:30 pm
i'm down every hope of getting a again, seems to me that given the situation, if you're worried about, she would do then again, nuclear should be considered lesser in which no crucial agreements being settled at the climate talks headlines about the event were dominated by some minor, but rather peculiar issues with camilla hasn't stop talking about hearing the president break when.
