a pentagon statement, ramping up tensions with moscow. and growing fears over twitters future as a beacon of free speech, as the online giant gets a new boss known for coming out against freedom of expression and the 1st amendment . ah colo, tuesday evening, at 9 here in moscow. my name's colleen bry. welcome to your world news from archie, international, developing story to star with then the origins and timing of this latest cobit very entering question of the dutch health officials say that on the chromos detected in the netherlands before it was reported in south africa. it's unclear though so far if the infected people who visited africa and exactly how the new variant appeared in the netherlands. but it could also mean that there are many more cases around the world earlier. kevin, haven't got the latest from our correspondence. peter oliver in europe and policy
1:02 pm
up in south africa. oh, so does announce. mentioned this new information that's coming forward is re big. welcome to authorities here in south africa. sh. this is because from the start people forming an african variant. and they would say, no, it's not as a companion, all scientists and i experts are so far advanced that they were able to pick it up to teach it and be honest to not to report it to the world health organization and very much the feeding here in south africa for the last few days following these travel bands has been that south africa has actually been blacklisted. well, i think it's all concerning. what we have seen is that infections here in south africa have morning to pose in recent days. the last official figures will have awful sundays when they were 2800 new cases and a complaint with just 500 hello, late and days earlier, the hospitals are approaching that they expect a lot of pressure in the next 2 to 3 weeks. and they also expect molding 10000 new
1:03 pm
cases by the end of this, at the same time, you still have thousands of south africans move to the international type of band fulfilling k. although the latest information you have is that british arrays should be operating again from tomorrow, but now we've heard that immigrants has displayed the cold. so the situation is where he threw it south africa is in its ways and the situation on the ground, despite the discovery or perhaps in addition to the discovery of this new strain, still the names, very boring. how has your um responded to this new stroke, especially closer this news that actually it could have been around a few days, maybe up to 11 days earlier. if this news is coming in this from the netherlands is to be believed anglo merkel on the well, her most likely successor or left sholtes as chancellor will be discussing with the health ministers from germany. 16 states what they're going to do for a national tactic to tackle the current outbreak of coven 19 may well be something
1:04 pm
about when schools can be closed. also something about curfews as well. be paying close attention to it. however, some of the regional leaders in germany, a saying action needs to be taken immediately to protect our healthcare system. we unfortunately have to shut down the whole country on an even strict basis. a federal emergency break must be decided this week for one country that's already in the middle of a lockdown is austria. that is going to run through until at least the end of this week. it could well be extended until the 13th of december. and we've been finding out a little bit more from the austrian government about their proposal that they're going to him, make it mandatory for people to have vaccines from the 1st of february. and anybody who doesn't go for a vaccine could be eligible for a fine of just over 3000 euro, or spend 4 weeks in jail. we are seeing cases, almost all over the country,
1:05 pm
all over the continent. we're looking at at present in spain, portugal check republic, italy, belgium, and the netherlands. as i mentioned, frances, looking into 2, at least 2 suspected cases there. and what we're hearing from ursula on the line, the a you commission president, is that more action needs to be taken to try and tackle this new variance here. now, in a race against time, the scientists and manufacture need 2 to 3 weeks to have a full picture about the quality of the mutations of this army chron variant. while staying in europe moving outside of the european union, the night in the united kingdom, england has re introduced the wearing of face masks on public transport and in shops as, as a legal requirement. it had been voluntary since the summer and ministers for health there is saying it's because of this new variant and uncertainty over how it may affect people. we're trying to get that balance and propose and,
1:06 pm
and it is difficult because it's unknown. so we need to buy some time so our scientists can work with the world's leading scientists to just basically sort of figure out what they're in. we know it's very transmissible by looking at that the year. but we don't know, you know, whether it work with the vaccine vaccine, whack or the other treatments, etc. so the scientists do need some time for that. well, that's how it looks across europe. right now we're be keeping a keen eye to see on what news develops, either with from the netherlands, with regards to the announcement that at this omicron very, it may have been present here for much longer. also watching what's going to come out from here in berlin. where anglo merkel, the german chancellor meeting with regional leaders as they try to establish a new national protocol for it when it comes to trying to tackle these covert outbreak. i just expanding or peter was saying they're about nations now applying their own measures to tackle the spread of the virus australia and some european countries of suspended flight to him from south africa and neighboring states. while others have banned everybody except their own nationals arriving from
1:07 pm
southern africa. however, israel and japan have gone a step further. they've imposed a complete ban. the japanese prime minister says it's crucial to avoid a worst case scenario while studies continue into the new strain. and it seems that he's got the people's backing at home. they want to see you now come on. i am from a rural area and i am very worried. my wife is also very worried wondering what tokyo residents are thinking about the new variant, the, you know, so i feel relieved now that prime minister kasheila announced very strict border measures with i think it was good that guess she, that took the border measures there swiftly and on top of that, i want him to prepare well for things like hospital beds and similar issues. i'm scared because ordinary people like us are a bit too relaxed. now lou crumbles it for sure is better not to allow people who might be infected to enter japan because the situation in japan is pretty stable. now. it's initial feeling. right now, scientists to rushing to adapt existing vaccines to fight the new stray,
1:08 pm
which has yet to be fully studied and the pressures on as well. how foggins zation says on the chrome potentially poses a very high risk globally. a w h o representative here in russia says progress is being made in understanding the strain. but there's much more work to do. when a mutation shows a number of, i would say changes a number of mutations that we can relate to something either to previous knowledge . for example, this virus, this variance has mutations many more mutations on the spike protein. it is actually these to need all that the virus is using to getting to the salad, make us infected, to actually cause infections to spread further. and this is why because it has many more gen other right versus other variance. it has immediately come into concert. so i think has scientific knowledge, but we don't have a logical knowledge. it's telling us at the moment that this is
1:09 pm
a more deadly virus. what we know from south africa is that mainly young people and this is where the cluster was detected. and we do know that callie's been young. people is lighter. we do not have reports, and he's no man that is causing more severe disease, or that it is morally felt. this is not something that we should speculate off. we really need a bit more time. and this is why he has said that there is no place for panic, but there is place for preparedness, proportion, and action. so the knowledge is growing, but adds the new cobit strain causes along globally. vaccine supplies are in the spotlight. nursing unions from 28 countries want to get rid of patents for corona virus jobs so that they can be made legally by any qualified manufacturer. the groups looking for backing from the u. n to saying the poorer countries lack the shot because they're being hoarded by the wealthy countries where that being produced at the moment, i says that the vaccine balance could lead to even more deaths. the direct
1:10 pm
consequences of the failure to distribute vaccines and treatment equitably to the vast majority of people of low and moderate income countries could likely for the transmission of coven 19 further mast illness and large numbers of fatalities. in those countries, there should be reason enough to address the crisis of global vaccine apartheid. well, with all the crowns spreading, the united kingdom is back in the spotlight for its handling of the pandemic. this time is nurse as unions, in 28 different countries are accusing. richard nations of essentially costing lives worldwide and even of creating a vaccine apartheid system. now essentially, what they're doing is taking their complaint directly to the united nations. basically, this is all about many rich countries, including the u. k and the e u. they're refusing to budge on rules, particularly regarding intellectual property rights for rich and nations. have secured 7000000000 doses of the vaccine in comparison to the low income nations.
1:11 pm
only having around 300000000 doses. now these nurses unions are really accusing rich nations of violating patients rights. instead of supporting this waiver, certain governments or protecting the prophets of big pharmaceutical companies at the expense of public health. these countries have violated our rights and the rights of our patients and cause the loss of countless lives of nurses and other caregivers. and those we have cared for. well, nurses unions in 20 different countries have now filed an appeal with the united nation, saying that the global gap between rich and poor is only exacerbated with the pandemic, and is now becoming blindly obvious. not only that, what they argue is that the transmission of cov, it in developing nations, increases the risks of new variance emerging. now, a waiver on all of these provisions for vaccines would then allow them to be made more widely and then distributed more widely as well. it would improved the global
1:12 pm
distribution of the vaccines. now, even the world health organization has weight in there to this debate, saying that there needs to be a cap on how much of a country is vaccinated. no more vaccines should go to countries that have already boxing aged, more than 40 percent of the population until kovacs has the vaccines. it needs to help other countries get that to well, the pandemic slogan has long been. no one is safe till everybody is safe. but really and truly it doesn't seem to be the case for many people arguing against the pharmaceutical companies that arguably operating profit before public health. and while there has been a global kovacs initiative, have these global initiatives really be in that successful, almost 2 years on now? from the beginning of the pandemic, and arguably, we're back in the eye of the storm. the feeling really is now that these rich countries are arguably having quite
1:13 pm
a selfish mindset and if they continue to do so well, we just go round and round in circles and go back to square one with these new variance emerging. but he may pollutants and answered, rushes developed a powerful new hypersonic weapons in response to a pentagon statement, escalating tensions with the kremlin. more on that next from correspondent romance culture of while answering questions from the participants of the russia calling economic of forum. vladimir putin. a question nato's potential weapons placement in eastern europe and he warned of the consequences that may follow a russian president followed up by saying that the country will soon have mock 9 hypersonic weapons. and he did so in response to a, one of the questions about the so called red lines in ukraine and natal steps that led to the current tensions between moscow and the western military alliance. i if
1:14 pm
miss al sites appear on the territory of ukraine than the flight time of missiles to moscow will be 7 to 10 minutes. and the case of hypersonic weapons 5 minutes. imagine that. and what else can we do? we will be forced to create seamless sites as a reaction to those who threaten us in this way. and we can do it now because we have successfully tested a hypersonic missile. and at the beginning of the year, we will already have new c based missiles in service, which can travel at speeds up to mach 9. the flight time for these missiles will also be 5 minutes. why we doing all this? creating such threats for us is the red line, but i hope it doesn't come to that. i hope that common sense and the joint responsibility for all countries and for the well community will prevail go water. the so called a russian aggression seems to be dominating the hearts and minds of western politicians and subsequently the people as well. now, media headlines claimed that ukraine is bracing for an imminent had sac while the u . s. sends and nato officials are pushing the agenda even further saying that
1:15 pm
russia will face consequences once it's at wanted that fact ukraine. now this is just a, one of their statements less heavily on us. and i have stated several times now there will be a high rise, a high price to pay for russia if that once again use force against in the front sovereign ocean ukraine. and also the odious also increased over a military presence in this region. just to make sure that all our laws are totally defended, unprotected incident against any russian resurrections. the global posture of you strengthens the combat, credible deterrent against russian aggression in europe, and enables nato forces to operate more effectively. we continue to watch with great concern movements by russian military units and near the ukraine border. i obviously can't speak to their their intentions,
1:16 pm
but we continue to believe that any escal latoria aggressive actions would be a great concern not only to the united states. and i have but hello to our allies and partners there on the european continent. meanwhile, russian defense ministry continues to record nato forces, movements and near its borders. now those includes at entries of michelle equipped worships flights of americans, strategic warplanes that have become more and more frequent. recently, also large scale exercises including unscheduled ones, are being conducted. moscow also says that the united states rehearsed nuclear strikes against russia in november. now the pentagon responded to that by saying that very drills were announced publicly at the time, and that they all here to international protocols. meanwhile, here are the economic forum earlier and she's their russian president questions. why natal felt the need to expand in eastern europe with it's the anthem missile

system saying that the relationship was almost idyllic back in the mid ninety's a different day and to his new job as twitter as c e o and paragraph while is already ruffling feathers, with face of more content clam down to the social network. because his past remarks about not prioritizing freedom of speech, he goes on of toby through the concerns that are being flagged up. the 1st thing to know about twitter, new c o, he may be new as well, the chief executive officer, but his not a new face in the company, per se. this 37 year old man of well indian descent, he joined twitter all the way back in 2011 as chief technology officer. so he has already a long, long history of being an executive within the company has been involved with all the pretty much all the main strategic initiatives with twitter. so it hardly comes as a surprise that this person is well,
1:18 pm
he is sharing the general line behind that the twitter has been taking over the past few years that the, well, twitter is bigger than, you know, freedom of speech that twitter has its own understanding of this term and that it's their backyard and they are, you know, they're in their right to dictate the rules. his are a statement of from the last year that came back to haunt him. now have a listen. oh is not too big bon mussman when, but our orders to, sir, we'll have to leave all the conversation to focus less on thinking about each but thinking about how the dance have changed. so right now we are still to see his, the 1st moves that he makes because everybody is anticipating or what to expect from him. and some pundits have been arguing or that, well he won't bring the will needed change to twitter needed, especially by the investors. because there are, they were growing increasingly unhappy with jack doors. he and his handling of war the scandals. you know, around twitter. there's been
1:19 pm
a lot of controversy. a lot of people, of course defending twitter. a lot of people well being on the other side of the fence on the other side of the barricades. but one thing a so far, oh, well, one thing that we are seeing so far that there are no indications that twitter will abandon their policy of, you know, giving some people the spotlight and taking the spotlight from others and doing it at their own will even though the company hasn't always been like this, i mean compare the statement of frog or wall that twitter is not about the 1st amendment, and that it will not be hampered in or hindered by it. with something that former twitter ceo, for example, on decker castillo, said up to one of our core values is our respect and defend the users voice. and we're the free speech wing of the free speech party. we believe our purpose is to serve the public conversation and that does take a stance around freedom of expression and defending freedom of expression as a fundamental human right. so prague
1:20 pm
a wall also has experience serve with microsoft, with 80 and t. so his no stranger to the broader, you know, silicon valley and you know, the high tech scene. so we'll have to see what he will bring to the table. and whether or not the concern of an of investors is something he will be able to deal with american actor just as small as his facing possible jail time, if found guilty of staging, a fake hate crime nearly 3 years ago. but with his trial beginning this week, his defense attorney maintained that small. that's was the victim of a real attack. as correspondent, candid mopping reports while opening arguments are taking place in the trial of actor justice, small lat, in chicago. he's charged with essentially making false reports to authorities alleging he was the victim of a anti gain to gay and racist hate crime. now, you recall it was 3 years ago that the 39 year old actor from the u. s. t. the program empire. it was widely reported that he'd been attacked by 2 white masked

1:26 pm
have this decision from judge nathan that says she can basically block a lot of information from reaching the public. the media has been part of the court room year, which is very interesting. and the judge is made a ruling very recently that in pure and sensational information will not be released to the public. nobody really knows what the meter on impure and sensational might be. none of that really what's competence in the justice system or in this trial to begin with. and now we have other information that you know, you don't want to create more of a circus around this trial. i don't know, there's lots of trials in the schedule a time that are absolute complete services. so why does this get special treatment? you know, it all just kind of reach something. something seems a stink here for a lot of people. french right wing t, v pundit air exhibit has announced his candidacy for next to his presidential election. but despite his popularity public scandals of his writings, as shall ado, bentz gave it pulls from paris. the would be bad boy of french politics has

1:29 pm
a country or freedom where everyone has the right to express their opinion. but to give so much visibility to one person like that is shameful. that premier pasco has, we hope mr. zima will clean things up a bit. the problem is that it's been 30 years 40 years that the state has been dean mobilized from many issues and we need to see it clearly. we need to re launch the country. i think the others won't have the courage to do laundry or something that's we're to day. we see that despite our differences, we all have the same problem in our daily lives. that is why we're all gathered today to say no to this, to visit this, the country. they call them a racist, but it's not true. he's no more racist than i am. i am of lebanese origin, and i'm here and i've integrated, well. now many have also describes him more as being the intellectual, donald trump, and he has had a popular right in the polls so far. at one point, even before declaring his candidacy poles showed that he could make the 2nd cut to
