the salad will support. we choose to look for common ground. ah no longer a beacon of democracy and perhaps never want for major international po, refills, startling thoughts and americans image abroad. especially as most countries question deny. taking part in a democracy summit hosted by the united states. we more the us treasury tracking is american journalist with have to find if they work for certain publications. one author shares his story. trojans powers is enormous of that of an individual free last journalist the i was microscopic, i had some of them are so frightened or unwilling even to give interviews like this one e k report, sky members. the ruling conservatives have admitted to hosting a party in their westminster headquarters during lockdown last year to st. rage
boils over a video where he members enforce johnson. st. implied. similar christmas event was held in downing street just stays before me while the number of countries registering you on the chrome strain of co with more than double to 57 since last week. but w h i talked to arti about the thread it poses. i'm really hopeful that 1st of all, the act vaccines will work reasonably well. and secondly, that this doesn't prove to be a much nasty virus finley earliest. right? ah, hello there, good evening you're watching are see international. now more than a 100 nations are currently taking part in a democracy summit over the next 2 days, hosted by u. s. president joe biden. but ahead of the gathering thousands of respondents from u. s. allied nations thing think that america is no longer
a good example. more than 16000 people from 16 advanced economies took part in large scale research on a because him, you brought a more than half of respondents. do you think that the u. s. has lost its credibility as a leading democracy and almost to court to say to it's never been one. while, according to china, america is actually lowering the bar by dividing the world into who it thinks are the good. and the bad may probably go to the federal court. yeah. the u. s. claims to be a champion of democracy and human rights, but has hidden its dark past and hypocrisy to day. the u. s. has no moral authority to judge whether the rest of the world is democratic or not, no matter how the u. s. classes over itself, it's true face of seeking again many under the guise democracy has long been exposed to the world. the so called summit for democracy will only go down in history as a manipulator and sabotage of democracy. arising, corruption, naval in the united states,
have also been on people's minds recently. and president biden's own son has been mired in scandals for more about what else is apparently incompatible with democratic values. his artes keller poppy. the u. s. government sponsored summit for democracy has already begun. joe biden is presenting it as his glorious call to spread freedom and human rights around the world. in the lead up to it, a national anti corruption program was announced. our real estate markets are at risk of becoming a safe haven for criminals collette to crafts and others, seeking to pock corrupt profits by the planners say that money laundering the of the sale of paintings is very hard to regulate. this is something the white house may be very familiar with. joe biden's, son hunter biden has just discovered some artistic talent. his paintings have sold for half a $1000000.00, not bad for someone who just started painting. although not everyone is impressed.
the 3rd painting you may recognize this name is a 100 biden. now you may think that such an exclusive of that, that 100 binders in such exclusive company, that he would have a background, new artist training for example. but you would be wrong if you thought that or perhaps that he has been selling his works for years. and again, unfortunately, you would be wrong. this is not just a hunter buying story. it is a bite and family story and it's corrupt. and they're basically thumbing their noses at, at, at everybody because nobody seems to want to hold him into account. hunter biden is a jack of all trades. it would seem, he got paid $50000.00 a month by bruce ma holdings, a company in ukraine. even though he had never worked before in the gas and oil sector, and some people looked into this and thought maybe his father got him the gig and that does not exactly re give squeaky clean politics. however, papa biden has always denied any foul play. we have great confidence in our son. i am not concerned about any accusations been made against him. it's used to get to
me. under biden, also owns 10 percent of the chinese investment company, known as b h. r. though he now announces he intends to sell is steak. when asked to clarify the relationship gen saki, the white house spokesperson didn't have much to say. the president son is not an employee at the federal government. so at point to his representatives, joe biden just recently gave quite a bit of good publicity to protera electric bus company. now it just so happens that jennifer granholm, who he appointed as secretary of energy, is a major shareholder. given that status the up to $5000000.00 in value of investment, the secretary granholm continues to hold and prosper. ink is position to increase in lights for personal, unsubstantial involvement in an aggressive, wide ranging on tireless public relations campaign. to promote electric vehicles, batteries on charging infrastructure with jo biden's,
democracy extravaganza kicking off. it's worth noting that recent polling data shows very few think you as democracy sets a good example, we decided to ask americans how they view their national leaders. do you think the american political lead is corrupt? sometimes not always. depends on who the candidate is in which party you support. yeah. well, they're all serving their own self interest. and then on the american interest, american people's interest at heart. do you believe the corruption allegations against hunter biden? yes. if you read the news and you listened to see in an you'll see how biden just did everything to cover up for a son. if they were more open about it and actually investigating it and found that there was nothing, then i'd okay, i'd be fine with that. but the fact that they're hiding everything makes me more suspicious. lots of big talk from the biden administration about fighting corruption around the world. but perhaps they should take a look a little closer to home caleb bobbin r t new york, which old simoli from
a london base thing tank on international affairs to say that the sudden buzz around corruption is just another to, to control of the countries. the southern re occupation with corruption is the way for. busy the united states to control other countries and particular control. busy their financial transactions, and this is a piece with the democracy summit, the united states government is now under the control, joseph biden. and his department of justice is treasury department will take the lead from the president. and then i'm going to investigate from the by many more than maybe investigated by all of this time by national transaction, southern extremes, success as an office. and remember on the biden they announced what was the
sometime in the fall. busy of 2020. i think that well, he's been told that he's under investigation by the federal government. well, time has elapsed, and this investigation is obviously going nowhere. meanwhile, american journalists are being threatened with massive fines if they work for what are perceived to be the wrong publications. a to contributors to the site called the strategic culture foundation have receive stern warnings from the us treasury. this last it was sent done lisa, and also michael event co who are both new york based journalist does say that the s c f is on a list of found organizations accused of election meddling, and the us citizens who engage in transactions with the foundation are liable to fines of at least $300000.00, douglas are shared his own experience with us. it was a warning regarding future articles. so essentially go, if i write for sci fi gauge and any kind of transaction, which i assume means any,
an exchange of money i could be had with massive fines that were completely destroy my finances. so i was taken aback. i was, you know, concerned certainly, but actually i stopped writing for the yes since the previous, you know, 4 or 5 months earlier. so i didn't feel personally threatened. but others who, who want to continue writing for the f works dreamily frightened fair. they have all stopped writing for the site because really there's just, it's, you know, it's impossible to, to battle the us treasury in this kind of case. the us treasury is power is, is, is enormous. and that of a, of an individual freelance journalist is microscopic. but some of them are so frightened, they're unwilling even to give interviews like this one. so you know, so this is what it's showing effect means they're, they're unwilling to write and they're unwilling even to talk about why they, why they're too afraid to write all the threats to make a part of
a targeted sanctions campaign and names by the treasury secretary back in april, treasury will target russian leaders, officials intelligence services and their proxies that attempt to interfere in the us electro process or so bertie has democracy. this is the start of a new u. s. campaign against russian maligned behavior. while the u. s. government does claim that the strategic culture foundation is controlled by russia's foreign intelligence agency, the s p r, and that is also linked to the russian foreign ministry. the foundation denies this course itself. a research platform on your asian global affairs, where we have contact to the c s to get a further response to the claims and also waiting to hear back from the us treasury to. and of course, we'll let you know when we get an answer done result. meanwhile, says a dangerous precedent has been set. i think of the that the at the s c f, the foundation hosts honest journalism. even though out i don't, don't agree with much of it. this is,
this is serious work by serious. ready journalists and that as a supporter of a free speech and a free press, i believe that readers should have access to this. ready kind of stuff and, and yet the, the u. s. government is trying to close it down. and therefore trying to stop information, which is usually at variance with official us policy. from reaching from reaching audiences, including audiences in the us, to stop journalists from writing for these kinds of websites as a new step. and i think that and i was surprised because the united states, in fact has a very good track record on when it comes to a free press. i mean, in america, we could say anything we want. yeah, i can write that with the most outrageous things about george w bush or joe biden, and not have to worry for a moment about the search secret police crashing through my door. but now things may be changing slightly,
and it doesn't or go well you k, his birth johnson denies downing street staff party last year during a strict national lockdown senior members of the conservative party, who reportedly admitted to hosting a separate similar event. also disregarding m. t k with measures with more on this story, his shirley edwards dashti. well, things have unfold as much like as much as the nation would have really expect it to be honest, more and more revelations and allegations of gatherings and christmas parties. now the conservative party has reportedly admitted at least one party took place last december on december. the 14th, when the prime minister was hang the rest of the country to think very carefully about what you do and how you can protect others. obviously though, the big wanting question is the party, the allegedly took place on december the 18th, even though the restrictions at the time were no end or mixing with any other
households. now, boys johnson is accused of lying and trying to cover a top. but the leader of the opposition says the prime minister and his party have been caught right hand it. they knew there was a party. they knew it was against the rules. they knew they couldn't admit it. and they thought it was funny. prime minister has been called right time did. why does me envy investigation right now? but just admitting it, i been repeatedly assured, oh, i probably think big news of the guy who's there is a risk of doing a great grave injustice to people who frankly, obeying the rules with the speaker, the prime minister. the government spent the week telling the british public, there was no party. all guidance was followed completely. millions of people now think the prime minister was taking them for fools. well, as the prime minister,
taking the public for fools because the reality of it really is the very fact that the next day a christmas was cancelled. that was the announcement from the government, meaning that people couldn't even go and visit people they love in hospitals. was worse though, for the public with all of this is not just the fact that the government may not been following their own rules, which is bad enough. but the very fact that people in government with law thing and mocking about their situation as a leaked video, showed a former press secretary to the prime minister, laughing when being asked about this so called downing street party. and you read moses, i went home, is fictional policy was a business meeting. i mean, it was not associated well, she has become the 1st casualty of this soccer, but we can easily expect more, especially as the police are now weighing in and potentially will be launching an official investigation into this match up. so this isn't the last,
we hear of it by any stretch of the imagination, but as the saga was all unfolding just yesterday, in the midst of it, the government decided to announce the restrictions, the new restrictions plan b, meaning masks are backer, back as being mandatory and public spaces working from home is now advised hancock cove at passports. i will be enforced in large scale events, but the timing of this announcement seemed far too obvious as a distraction. but boys johnson insist that wasn't one. people say that, um, we're sort of making this announcement to, to coincide with events in, in politics. well, actually, i imagine if this step were to have been delayed because of political or events, one kind or another, what would people say? then you got to act to protect public health. we spoke to the formal under mccann livingston about this, and he says that the prime minister looks increasingly out of touch with factors.
he's alienate more and more people. people want to see a prime minister who's in downing street because they want to make life better. the whole country, not just to look after himself and from advocacy, promote himself and get nice and rich in order that he's the most you saw me scottish. no, i've ever come across. he just lives in life all the time. i don't think he's really a politician. i think yes, once the same as celebrity you should are going to show business. i'm he said no clear political strategy. we were the last country. you're going to lockdown, we had thousands more die because we side you to tackle this crisis really early, which is what a good politician should do when he 1st marriage on the political se negus. massive be popular. but in the 8 years he was mayor of london, he did virtually nothing. and he doesn't really do anything. as prime minister. i do think i knew that there's a real prostate that he might be pushed out about these by his own and piece.
what's not international to come? massage, president biden's migration policies. a back in the spotlight that offer slump in deportations on the re, introduction for the trump era policy that has led to a serge the border in arizona. we'll have more from that to stop with no one else. so the wrong one. i'll just don't hold any new world yet to see how this thing becomes the advocate and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah
rate of hospitalizations could rise. we asked the blue ha, special envoy on cove id for his perspective on the new varied people do not understand enough about this paris. nobody knows for sure how nasty ami chrome is that there's information coming through that it's, it's not too awful. ready and this is good, but it takes time to sort these things out and we're in a kind of odds on stage at the moment where we're breaking for the results of the research. what i want to say is everybody keep doing the stuff that you know what to do, even if you're bored a bit. and sooner or later we'll find out how bad only cronies. some companies saying their back scenes will work other saying they going to need a booster for them to be effective. all this will come clear, it usually takes about 4 weeks and i anticipate that will happen, but privately inside my. so just because you asked me,
i'm really hopeful that 1st of all, the act vaccines will work reasonably well. and secondly, that this doesn't prove to be a much nasty virus than the earliest trends i've been involved in controlling disease outbreaks and pandemic since 2005. that's quite a few years. the one thing i've learned try never to force people to do things through various incentives like fines or even nasty things. mandates are a last resort and the use of vaccines in children is because they just thought that vaccination will help to reduce circulation of the barrison children. but right now, the world health organization sticks with its recommendation that vaccines should be used for people who are at risk of severe illness and death.
there are still an awful lot of susceptible people around even when you've got 70 percent vaccination coverage than this. hi, right of, of cases is being driven by the susceptible. secondly, there does seem to be a capacity for the borrowers to re infect people, especially if it is some months since they either had their previous infection or had their immunization. the protection doesn't last for life, it wears off. so that's i think, the reason why we're doing the spikes, even though it's high vaccination drains. foreign minister says that here this ready to talk to moscow and make concessions to secure pace but worn. the country will not compromise on fundamental national issues while the common still come after russia's foreign ministry. spokeswoman said that negotiations with the country had stored and a key set of massing troops in it ceased our correspondent dan hawkins. princess,
the latest. well, at 7 of the tensions on it, there was points in many months. the conflict in the mass is a frozen one with the regular flare ups and as a result, casualties both military and civilian on both sides of the mall cation line. it is now a focal point for global attention, especially given the meeting between president suppose and, and board and just yesterday on the subject on today's announcement by the foreign ministry spokesman murray as a kind of a, it's certainly no cause for optimism. she mentioned that not only had talks stalled, which implied they could be restarted the word fused were the things had reached a dead end. and that's especially concerning. given these latest announcements about the alleged troop filled up. this is what you have to say. i want to buy need and what will you to me or negotiations entered a peaceful settlement? have you told a special o s, the monitoring mission records that keith is transferring troops and heavy arms,
including artillery and armored vehicles to the eastern border? well, to put this into context, this is come, i made multiple accusations from both sides and what i say, both sides, i mean, accusations leveled at russia. that is a massive troops on its western border and preparation for hostile actions against ukraine, with russian officials denying this, saying that any troop movements on its territory on its own borders are simply a response to hostile actions and true bill up from nato on the russian border and now the cranium side has been accused of the same thing, as we said earlier, moving heavy artillery tanks to that t d more cation line between ukraine and those break away regions that while no open conflict, recursion has occurred. this is of course, a great cause for concern because the misc agreements diminished protocols prohibits both the presence of foreign troops in the breakaway region and all of the presence of heavy weaponry on either side on the location line, which is so fragile to hold both sides of the keys,
each other breaching these agreements, both politically and militarily and provoking, threatening each other with these troop deployments. and this is of a concern because a lot here is at stake 1st and foremost that human life civilians. as i said on both sides of that, the medication line face daily danger from skirmishes between rebels and government troops. and 2nd, you politically, of course, because multiple actors and states are involved in this very tend situation. and any sudden movement by either side, which can be chatted as a hostile action, as some sort of thought of a conflict could lead to global ramifications which go well beyond just this region . so the world be watching very closely what happens overcoming days and weeks the governor of the us state of arizona is calling out the by the administration over its migration policies. he says, border patrols are overwhelmed and national guards have been called up because of
what he calls biden's piecemeal policies. the biden administration's mis direction is encouraging migrant families to take a long and dangerous journey as thousands arrive at the border. local law enforcement is overwhelmed with processing. this search creates a safety in humanitarian crisis for both arizonans and migrants where the port asians have dropped by around 80 percent during the biden presidency according. so migration control thing tank. the center for immigration studies, analyze data from the federal agency that handles legal entry, known as ice unnoticed. the deportation of criminals also fail the director of policy studies at the group behind report explain to us what's happening with us migration were at a time of historically high, illegal immigration, and historically low enforcement when ice agents are not allowed to make arrests, as they were in the past, under the new policies,
that means that to serious criminals that are typically the priority for enforcement are allowed to stay in american communities instead of being sent back to their homes. and when criminals are allowed to stay here, typically they re offend and create new victims and continue to cause problems in this country. so this is an unnecessary public safety risk and is damaging communities that have to absorb criminals who otherwise would be sent home. nevertheless, the court has ordered the biden administration to reinstate a trumpet, reprogram where my groups are returned to mexico to await their asylum decisions. united and 123 launch did send thousands of desperate people to the us border to try and get in before the new policy starts to work again. hence, the scramble we heard about in arizona. jessica born again says though that more should be done to prevent illegal crossings. this is a matter of policy. it's not
a matter of resources or immigration system is badly in need of reform. we need to have measures in place that result in more enforcement, more tools for immigration enforcement. more programs that allow state and local law enforcement agencies to help ice do its job. and i think we need more money for enforcement directly at the border as well. more barriers to prevent people to keep, to cross illegally. finally, the sour everything from robots, despite gadgets, all developed by young scientists here in russia, the world and also our t g goes down off, have been getting a glimpse of the future. so we are at a young scientists congress, which is essentially a very upscale version of a science fan. we all know and well, some of us love. and so we've come here to see what some of the young visionaries
have brought to this show and tell, ah, okay, so this stat hair shows off all sorts of, exoskeletons, from full on terminate to like, suits well, for the lack of a better analogy to some of the move, well rog, sac looking types there intended to be utilized in such fields as construction agriculture, basically with any type of a hard manual labor. and well, i'm about to try one of these on. ah. okay, so i'm, i guess some might be looking like a full but this is very tight. like you can feel that is very good form. you know, if you need anything to keep your back straight, if you need, if you have any sort of back problems, this is already a solution. and well,
let's see if firm, if it's going to be good enough for me. if i, if i find it easier, lifting any sorts of weight. so these are about 5 kilos. and again, i've been told that it doesn't make it doesn't make stuff lighter for you, but rather it redistributes the weight that you're holding. so certain contraptions here they are, well, i'd say borderline spyware. this here is a fake base station. so what does it scans the area for the existing cellular towers? and then it imitates one of them, pretends to be one of them. so when say your mobile device connects to it, it thinks it is connecting to a legitimate, nothing out of the ordinary world base station, but instead and connects to this one. and apparently you can do and manipulate a lot of things using this ice. ah,
i check out this dude here because this, this is one creepy android. so this device here has been designed forbes scientist, essentially whenever they inject a lab animal with anything with sarah, they're studying, it helps them show and helps them see where the substance that they are studying. the substance that they're injected. a mouse, in this case where it travels, if it accumulates in the right spot, like here. and if it accumulates in the right amount, the developers, he are telling you that it has great potential for medicine. while this conference, it wraps up the official year of science here in russia, but the organizers say that, well, yes, they come and go, but their developments, they are here to stay. a makers dawn of reporting from sochi oxy mil to wraps up our book.
