9:00 pm
returning on this edition of the program, we examined the significance of both statements. ah, russian president and indian prime minister wrap up top level talks in new delhi just to day before vladimir putin's planned video conference with joe biden kremlin spokesperson, who's in india with president putin. slams nato's aggressive stance on moscow. dmitri pascall spoke exclusively to r t, and movie numerous on that issue. now we see that nato is taking an extremely aggressive position because we see mr. still to looks rhetoric. we see the difference. u. s. need is rhetoric. we do not like nonsense, we will do everything to ensure auto with . that's the message from president biden. as western media goes into overdrive with allegations of an eminent russian to russian invasion of ukraine.
9:01 pm
ah, oh ron casting life from moscow? russia? this is marty international. i am your host donald quarter. welcome to the program . one of your putin is indian counterpart concluded their bilateral talks in new delhi, following the summit to comprehensive joint statement was issued covering everything from military cooperation to health care partnerships. it's only the 2nd time the russian president has traveled abroad since the pandemic began. ortiz ilia, a tranquil reports from india's capital, to understand rushes international priorities. this han allowed to understand where moscow stand on the global chess board. it just worth realizing what the russian president vladimir putin was up to less than 24 hours before the crucial. i'd even
9:02 pm
say mega vital video conference with the u. s. president joe biden. he went to new delhi and left the indian capital late in the night, and you only arrived in saw cheap russia early in the morning. in the meantime, in the west, mainly by nato countries. moscow is being accused of plotting some sort of invasion of ukraine or a rust accused of being aggressive elsewhere in the world. and calls are a very loud to once again isolate russia. now, a while, all of this is happening. moscow wants to show that up. it's got friends in asia and it's ready to expand these kind of ties if the western countries aren't looking forward to building partnerships with russia, in fact, of latimer potent and a renter muddy are always calling each other friends. and they've had this warm relationship for years now already. but of course it's not only about did the
9:03 pm
personal friendship between the 2 leaders in a joint statement that was already published on the kremlin website. there are $99.00 paragraphs outlining the things that either have already been done together or that will be done together in the near future. this shows how much are india and russia c i to why at this point and how they want to increase cooperation in so many fields ranging from science, nuclear cooperation, space exploration. but most importantly, a military ties as well. this is what i asked of. 3 the kremlin spokesperson dmitri past gov. about when i was speaking him exclusively in the palace behind my shoulder injury were military technical cooperation is a very important component of our bilateral relations with india. and as the president said today at the beginning of his conversation, we mr. moody,
9:04 pm
these relations are quite unique in their essence because we jointly not only develop but also established joint production of high tech, military products. and these a well no missiles that we are making together. and now the production of collage because he's been established here under the equipment, this is extremely important. and this is an advanced form of cooperation, special privileged valued partnership. these are the words that are constantly being used by the members of the 2 delegations. i can remind you that india is buying russia's arms. india is buying the most advanced missile defense system. russian made the asset. 400. russia is upgrading a nuclear power plant in this country. and new delhi is ready to invest up to a $1000000000.00 in russia. and in russia's far east, in particular, this is of course, something that is raising quite a few eyebrows in the west. and if we're talking this crucial military cooperation, frayed in arms and weapons and there's
9:05 pm
a special program that outlines plans for a 10 year period. the previous one has just expired and i can tell you that moscow in india have signed a new one, which is going to be valid until one t 31. and yes, india has agreed to assemble the famous russian collage stick of guns, too, or correspondence exclusive interview kremlin spokesperson. dmitri pascall also spoke about tuesdays upcoming call between the russian president and his american counterpart. he said it comes amid some fairly aggressive rhetoric against moscow. video confidence ish has her nose. we often herring for the video conference as soon as tomorrow president, putin and president biden, will happen to order. this is a very complicated at the time to a rhetoric calling from the u. s. and e u leaders sounds pretty aggressive, yet we see plenty of fake news about russia allegedly planning and aggressive invasion. at the same time,
9:06 pm
no one talks to key of non warns key of against even thinking of a military intervention in it. and yet elegance in conflict and had given the complicates in the background of us russian relations near it will be as difficult discussion for the leaders here and large in vars. now linelle, a very important statement was made in the ukraine defense minister interview to you. k media for if you essentially called the u. s. canada accounts and the u. k. military to the front line, the law, and put out that i do that online by passing nater, vanessa lampa. can you tell us about the last quote, how much of a bree more is of the alliance, the all the red lines like to me and lieutenant to find? no, and the my well ceiling. we have had similar statements from a number of european capitals, including as far as i know, a message from the british military. and they were ready to send the troops over. not only those in training, but those in combat units as well. this is something we are obviously very concerned about. this is something we do not like. and it forces us to take some
9:07 pm
protective measures to defend our interests, but laughing at them can. what about the potential actions of the nato alliance? no movie jim. now we see that nato is taking an extremely aggressive position. we see mr. stoughton bugs rhetoric and we see the different u. s. leaders, rhetoric. first, they all say they don't accept any red lines. second, they say that nato will do whatever it wants. 3rd, it will do it on whatever territory it wants. and 4th of all of this is aim to deter russia. we do not like that. we will do everything to ensure our own interests of telephone, little go, or inevitably, what will be fundamentally different about this video conference compared with an ordinary telephone calls on a face to face some anti dancer verbal misfortune could. well, whenever presidents meter read by a video or just by phone, they obviously concentrate as much as possible on each other's words under previous administrations. so when at least it is something constructive remained in our relations, our country said lead at an agreement to establish
9:08 pm
a secure video cole line for the highest level dance access to the provider is had been abandoned until now. although it's the technical working order had been maintained and lab, but now from us i think everyone has been using the video, cold format for the past 2 years. so we decided to revive this line to, especially since it allows us to discuss the most. and i sent them a topic occur as far as i understand, but the process of arranging this conversation was a difficult one. and we remember in donald trump and cancel the meeting with la maya clinton of the g. 20 summit in 2018 and with escalations. right before the new year of how did the 2 president managed agree? now just given, as you mentioned that we're seeing rising tensions in the end of the president's obviously have the need to talk to each other. even in the most drained of moments when attitudes are not what i would call rational or sober, but emotionally magnified. so as the escalation gets stronger every day, than the precedence you obviously bear the responsibility. feel the need to discuss the issues. to day we heard russian foreign minister,
9:09 pm
sir gala rocky say that russia expressed concerns to india over us activity in india. pacific region just come oregon, mr. laval and also talk about the quarter lateral security dialogue. great align which for in addition to immediate live, included to hand him his trailer and the u. s. no, you're actually in this trend by the u. s. and other countries for me, such membership clubs, several closing, get togethers gas because mr. love rob liked, i believe, in the asia pacific region is not something the advert agility insecurity, or insures predictability with it. and how are the big and the bricks groups different from these clubs are those groups don't prioritize the same issues. those love systems, for instance, they don't mind the spacing on principles of the non proliferation regime can vineyards. we actually believe the security should be indivisible, and we have enough instruments to maintain in harrisburg training. we spoke of the geo politics expert who believes the talks between bruton and modi are a clear sign of the strength of their partnership. i think for russia,
9:10 pm
it helps to show is that it's not only china, it also has india on its site. and that helps to counter you know, any restaurant items to isolate russia. india has never gone along with any american ah, initiatives to isolate or law impose sanctions audible why court russia did that in 2014, also often of the crimea, or was it integrated to russia? the barack obama administration are reminded that the we should know, join sanctions and a wide corporation. we know what did that, and i stood by as a so we would hope that medicines be males. we are also talking to the west on the issue of our sanctions threatened sanctions on india because we'll bind as 400 from russia. and we'll categorically bore them with russia to special partnership beacon never abandoned them. as the crumbling spokesperson mentioned, claims have been spreading that russia's poise to invade ukraine. moscow's denied these accusations, saying they bear no relation to reality. and that it's actually the americans who
9:11 pm
are acting belligerently in the region. that's us media and politicians hype up speculation about a possible war. according to some reports, european intelligence agencies gave that version of events, little credibility until washington stepped in many allies, when not convinced that serious things were happening. we were surprised about this intelligence gap. how and why the u. s. was seeing things that we were not seeing if i have to compare soundbites from before this info. and then at the nato meeting in riga, there was a big shift towards the u. s. version of things. as we mentioned, the new wave of tensions comes as the us and russian presidents prepared to hold a video call on tuesday. but joe biden seems to be in no mood to negotiate. yes, oh. of course, the diplomacy is out and red lines of that to be crossed when the big bad wolf is
9:12 pm
planning a land grab ring a bell. a similar warning came in the spring when russian troops gathered for snap training exercises. and again, when military drills were conducted in crimea, and only recently moscow was supposedly the mastermind of the qu, in key of remember the currency of no mean either because it didn't happen. in fact, none of the predictions came true, but this time apparently it's different. this time, it's the real deal, and to feed the fair, even drawing up the kremlin battle plans the new year offensive. and for the umpteenth time this year, russia is forced to defend the presence of its own troops on its own land. russia is not a threat to any country. the deployment of russian troops on the national territory is our sovereign roy and no one's business. it is nato on its members states a recklessly moving their military forces and infrastructure to the russian borders
9:13 pm
. so what is washes red line, us spy, pained, jetting towards rushes, borders. passenger jets with hundreds of civilians on board, diverted because the nato re complain with too close and wouldn't respond to ground control. the actions by the u. s. air force create the threat to civilization and the fact that the catastrophe was averted over the backseat doesn't mean that the u . s. and nato can go on the risk in people's lives with impunity. the latest american war ship sailing into waters bordering russia. what the shows was nature, you know, a us warships has now entered the block, seeing what we can see it through, binoculars will the crosshairs of other than system system a better one or multiple missile systems just across the fat. it was a bit more to look at where nato's military infrastructure is located, just a short distance from our borders. in romania, holland bush plants and we saw defense systems have already been deployed and they
9:14 pm
can easily be converted into offensive missile systems that targets us. it only takes a matter of minutes to change the software. and especially now instinct tells me that if a russian destroy was spotted steaming into new york harbor, it would be a flaming red line for washington. but believe it or not for us all, this is a pink line at best. the real issue is nato, or rather, nato's expansion and expanded it has from this humble state in 1990 to this empire in 2020. now, back in the day, russia was promised, nato would grow, not one inch eastward of berlin. wel, that's berlin. so no, it's not an ent, it's over a 1000 kilometers. and now it's knocking out rushes door. ukraine joining nato and we've been talking about it for a long time is a red line for us. the continual drawing of keys into the military orbit of the alliance, the de facto start of natives,
9:15 pm
assimilation of the military infrastructure of this country. and the desire to turn it into a foothold for confrontation with russia could all cause severe negative consequences and destabilize the military and political situation in europe. but lucky for nato, it's got to get out of jail free card. because in politics, well promises are made to be broken. there is that where is that written down? where is that from was written down and under the romulans when one wanted rich girl, which it didn't quantica one us mcmurry to go in. in the meantime, the us unfazed by it's terrible track record of predicting russian behavior is covering its bases and drawing up some economic sanctions. you know, just in case, after all, nothing screams diplomacy more than getting your threats in a row before a high stakes meeting. last friday, rush, an air traffic control had to divert to passenger airlines near ukraine to prevent a collision with us spy plane. moscow accused washington of threatening the safety of civil aviation and risking lives. the pentagon has now though issued
9:16 pm
a statement on them, denying that it's plain put any one in danger. and if all the talk of russia of a rush, you crane conflict has got you wondering what's really going on? why not check out the views of scott ritter on our website? the former u. s. intelligence officer doesn't by what various outlets are selling. read all about it on r t dot com. meanwhile, key as continues to push the moscow threat narrative, the defense ministers calling on the u. s. u. k. and canada to provide military support against the legit risk of a russian invasion is also warning of a potential migrant crisis. if war does actually break out. we spoke to political commentator, crisp ambry on why he thinks key f is becoming increasingly aggressive. ukraine is becoming more, more almost hysterical in demand if you like to join a. so i should be supplied with high tech weapons by america in the west. so it is
9:17 pm
becoming more warm cervical because it's going to the situation. it's not getting what it wants to weigh a membership. but there are growing voices in the way. you want to say why you could not be allowed to join nato despite the fact was, is very clear. this is a read why image russian will not want to be cross. good, simply, if your credit was to join nato, it will be over a 100 miles in some ways to 300 miles more school. something russia is going to do with bridge. the problem is given to mikhail gorbachev, need to know why. so why any members, any of the former satellite states over the soviet union, eastern europe, and indeed, the former soviet republics. i promised broke it and it was made everyone knows it was made. now some news just in israel has reportedly conducted a missile strike on the syrian port, city of latasha, that's according to syrian state television. the or strike allegedly struck
9:18 pm
containers in the cargo area of the port setting. some of them ablaze. israel has not yet commented on the attack and no casualties have been reported so far. of course keep you updated on that story. as we get all the information the white house has announced a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 winter olympics and beijing, citing concerns about a legit human rights violations in china. and that by new ministration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the beijing 2022 winter olympics and paralympic games given the peer scenes, ongoing, genocide and crimes against a humanity. and john and other human rights abuses, the athletes on team usa have our full support, will be behind them 100 percent, as we cheered them on from home, who will not be contributing to the fanfare of the games stand off comes amid all. busy ready, tense relations with washington,
9:19 pm
frequently accusing beijing of mistreating minority groups. earlier chinese media reported that it would technically be impossible for washington to stage a diplomatic boycott. given that no american diplomats had been invited to the games in the 1st place. us athletes will still compete, however, and the i o c has said it respects biden's decision and reiterated the importance of leaving athletes out of politics. china has called the, the move and outright political port provocation, but has given no details as yet on how they may respond. we spoke with the shanghai based politics, professor and a professor of history at the new mexico state university about the issue. they said that the biden administration is trying to politicize the winter olympics. it's an unnecessary slide against paging. it's it looks like a reactionary attempt by a week president. well, you know, it does signal at the, by the ministration wants to politicize, the olympic, somewhat similar to what we saw between the us and the ussr during the cold war.
9:20 pm
now this will indicate the many by does not subscribe the life experience of peaceful, athletic competition. we should keep in mind, however, that it's not a total boycott as your lead and noted. american athletes can feel compete. furthermore, it's not as provocative as what we see from the u. s. f. respect to ukraine against russia or taiwan against mainland china, or how the u. s. stand or the proliferation of nuclear weapon to australia. the bigger question now is whether other countries will follow washington lead and in post, similar boycotts, and how china will respond. it's always unfortunate when you know the olympics is, is politicized. but i do think that the trend in american and china relations, despite the brief moment of call that seem to be expressed in the, in the video conference between general secretary, she and president biden, that that seems to have passed. and we're back to a more overtly hostile attitude. it's interesting, of course,
9:21 pm
that american athletes will still be competing. american corporations that sponsor the olympics and broadcast out on television, of course don't want to lose out on their revenues. so i think that there's a very interesting dichotomy here between this attitude on the part of the government and the broader position of the olympics. new york is set to become the 1st us city to mandate vaccines for all private sector workers mailed the mayor. bill de blasio says the rule will take effect later this month. just days before his term ends. r t, kale mop and reports new york city mayor bill de blasio who portrays himself as a national leader in the fight against colbert 19, has taken a pretty bold move and announced a vaccine mandate for the whole city of new york. for all private businesses, he cited the on the kron variant as well as cold weather and seasonal fluids and
9:22 pm
other factors in making this decision. quite a big move from the new york city mayor, who is outgoing, he will soon be out of office. here's what he said, as of today, we're going now say, 1st in the nation, measure our health commissioner. well, now's a vaccine mandate for private sector employers across the board. now, vaccines are already required for all city employees that teachers, firefighters, police officers, emergency medical workers, etc. furthermore, they are required for the staff of all religious and private schools in new york city. but this new mandate will hit a 184000 private businesses across the city of new york. they will be required to have vaccinations for all of their employees. quite a dramatic move and there's been quite a negative reaction and response made it a blast. you would impose a 1st in the nation vaccine mandate for all private sector workers in new york city
9:23 pm
. build blasio isn't a mayor. he's a tyrant. just spoke to catherine wild, the president of a prominent n y c business group, we were blindsided. there is no full warning, no discussion, no idea about whether it's legal, who he expects to enforce it. new york city announces covey vaccine mandate for private businesses going where no city has gone before, because it's potentially unenforceable, and will probably get stuck in the courts until well off to the med to parts at the end of the year. now the new york city mayor expects that this will survive any legal challenges. we already saw a situation where for a moment jo biden's, federal mandate was put on hold by the courts. but then later upheld in the court of appeal. and bill de blasio expects the same exact expects that the courts will uphold this mandate and it will move ahead. now it's important to note the mandate will go into effect on december 27th, which is the day. it's actually 4 days before bill de blasio is set to leave office
9:24 pm
and be replaced by new york city. mayoral elect, eric adams, the new mayor, will be coming in and replacing bill de blasio 4 days after the mandate. now eric adams, the incoming mayor, who was elected in the vote a few months ago, says that he plans to meet with people who are critical of the mandate and listen to what they have to say. and if you taken notice of the tone in the city right now, and the anger that may prove to be a little bit more than he is bargaining for failure to provide equal access to vaccines worldwide may result in the emergence of new coven strains. that's the warning from the president of the international federation of the red cross. in an interview with r t. francisco rocca discuss not just the war on cove it but also the poland bell rous migrant crisis. and there wasn't counting the 9. you can yonah, for example, we had many saying that though dosa, while in africa we sta, louisa raised that tisa temper, sandy boonies,
9:25 pm
engrossed with 0 percent salt. something that says moral got set the what we are ready to rule so far, we are ready to scale up our activities in africa, by deity, the shoes about validated the, the vaccines to have access to the vaccines. we have to put pressure on the pharmaceutical companies. there, you will be an union, the united states, the u. k. we invested the be unsolved dollars, sir, in the researcher, due to the dual to make this vaccine accessible. so why the boy discount in the developing counties that have not derived that to have access? so i think these, it should be a common road, not something that said belong to the, to the, from a central young company is the beginning there. believe me, i did it on them, it has been politicized to look at they, they did, they did the level of the fake news or their day even political lisa had to spread around the world. so this is something that unfortunate has been 40. this iser bukosa you test to do with the fear of the people,
9:26 pm
it's up to the political leader to follow they, they advise, is coming from their scientific community to least and not to them, to walk with them, to avoid the total, to vote at the, on the same level and he's also the media is an important responsibility. this and tv community and people the media and the governments are continuing to ring the alarm bells over this very end. but we're having the w h show, the chief australian medical officer and the south african medical association saying don't panic. what do you say? we should follow the. the advisors coming from the idiot, average shore, and this and given community saw, dwarfed, and a political lead us and the government's out of state dutengo their descent given community in dealing with a call in 19. and, and this is david to may. davie then sat in terms of our over, ah, did, did, did the reason why we have these new vari answer. so we have cold, it would, you may be the insulator without a. i brought my vaccination without giving access to any human beings up to the
9:27 pm
vaccines. the risk of new vari, answer these days are very high. go and we can not blame. also, these is another aspect of it, for as is, it is of concern windata. we can not blame the south africa scientists, a tool to ha, for a heavy anger. i opened a door to the scientific community about these new discovery galaxy i think was i was a good idea. unfortunately, e is not working as expected. so the number of distribution out of the vaccine swell go home, michael, that sir is i ism, is not so high aga, and we, we expected much more ride themself. general she from the international community and there, and they had the idea that was a good idea. he will start to give their priority and then some distribution baycove access to the medical doctors to the nazis that are working on the frontline. but unfortunately this is workinger less than 50 percent so far. so then
9:28 pm
i'm, they said very, very, very low and that is issa eyes and i did aspect of the international committee should take as easily in consideration. so we have to do more in terms of distribution and giving access the better i was good cross with this both with international federation. i see that the moment is they're doing a, a good job. of course, disease now not to meet tame or long term solution that area hosted in a sheltered area, but so far they are in a warm environment and, and we are engaging in attic discussion we day in the governmental mendosa tool to find either solution of them and put on the unfortunately we don't have access said to the board to unfortunately i'm not even nineties. i said he's on a full consent for myself that i'm not surprised about a european union now. and they were cas county ira reacting in dealing with the human beings. this is, and i'm wondering if we are losing global humanity because he's not about every
9:29 pm
county has the right to say that policies for migrations. we have not question. if some out diety, the humanity on which we have to, to treat every human beings, this is the only point that we are racing. rushes reported it's 1st cases of the new omicron covert variant. it was detected in 2 out of 10 people who had returned from south africa was 1st detected in that country and the new mutation has been spreading with more than 40 countries having recorded cases, the new strain is said to have be more contagious than previous ones although at present, it's not linked to any debts at all. scientists are working to adapt existing vaccines to fight it. and a microbiologist explained to us just how the new varied works against immune systems. so i'm looking very carefully on, i know people are other people are also looking very carefully the data coming out of south africa to get the glimpse of what will happen in russia. and right now, the growth of the, the spread of this virus against the big round of immunity to delta does not look
9:30 pm
good. there is a very little data on that, unfortunately, so far. one piece of data when we have is not the people who got infected previously with delta are more likely to get re inspected with on the kron compared to the people who help people who got alpha green sector. so on the chronic looks somewhat different from the viewpoint of our news system up now the delta and all on for this there in state. and so that might mean that we may need some conditional explaining to the community of what these pharmacies are . that is actually the same parts and maybe the vaccines will ultimately have to be tweaked for that from the health care viewpoint vaccine mandates of probably be a good thing. because, you know, there is 40 percent of its native people that we have here in russia.
