ah, washington winds its appeal against the ruling blocking during the sanchez extradition to the u. s. is case, may now return to a lower court to be re heard. coming out, we speak with the wiki leeks editor in chief. this is not a case that is being fought on the basis of that law. this is an absolute travesty of any legal process. sanchez, k sparks, i get around the world with rights groups noting it comes as britain takes part in it. democracy summit that hales the west, supposed freedom of the press and provocative and threatening action. russia slams ukraine for attempting to dangerously approach its maritime borders near crimea, taking tensions between the 2 states, to a new level, get reaction from residence on the potential event. promot gaddis's, blatant provocation. they wanted to paint russia is guilty where they always blame
5:01 pm
russia for everything lost on you, deal with they are likely doing it on purpose to anger. russia on the sheets of a jet is just a pleasant way, provoke, ah, look her to ortiz will do that one. i am live from moscow, q, with me, kevin o' in for the next 30 minutes. and 1st, then a london court has ruled wikileaks found a julian assange can be expedited to the united states. washington wanted to appeal against her previous ruling with blocks. aside from being sent to america to face trial on espionage charges, is found, say, described friday's decision as a grave miscarriage of justice. julian exposed the crimes of cia tortures of ca killers. and now we know that those ca killers were planning to kill him too . how can this court,
5:02 pm
how can these courts approve an extradition request? under these conditions, go to the phone just now or step closer to being expedited to the united states. as the u. k. high court has decided that it will be overturning a decision not to expedite him to the united states. that decision was based back in january on medical grounds at the time. the judge said it would be a press if a student is sanchez at a high risk of suicide. of course, back in october, those a to day harry, i was the united states trying to appeal over numerous grounds, including the fact that it offered an unprecedented package of assurances, as i saw it would not be held under the maximum security the strictest maxim security conditions. in prison and that he isn't unwell is being, he's made out. well, judas sanchez of continue to say that he is indeed
5:03 pm
a suicide risk. and that all of these assurances are meaningless and vague as they put it. they said that the united states can reverse any decision at any point. cost is also concerned about the trustworthiness of america's guarantees. to pointing to one of those reports in the, in the cia i had talked to kidnap during the saw and put it to kill them. and even was spying and bugging him during his time at london's ecuadorian embassy. now june assigned as noise. what they say is, this is i'm pulling up evidence to not only throw out the court case entirely, but they say it's a 100 percent politically motivated. plus they of course, argue that you're in the san should be walking free. did you know my sinew to fight for a sanchez freedom? it is unfair to keep him in custody when there is no crime or punishment for him. we continued to fight and this latest decision is not yet final. it's will take
5:04 pm
time. i remind you that extradition hearings have been going on for almost a year, and it may take us long again to get a final decision. however, sanchez health continues to deteriorate and all of this affects his physical and psychological condition. of course, the journalist is being prosecuted for publishing, reliable information about especially grave war crimes committed by the american military in iraq and afghanistan. and it is worth noting that the american cult is not prosecuting the military who committed these crimes, but the journalist who published information about serious human rights violations . therefore, everything that happened became very indicative of the violation of freedom of the price by the american justice system in relation to other countries. now the united states on june is on for what they deem is one of the largest compromises of classified information in the history of the united states. and if found guilty and convicted, he could be sent to prison for up to a 175 years. thus because the us of indicted him on 18 counts under the espionage
5:05 pm
jacques for publishing. i pacified military documents overnighted to the war in iraq and afghanistan. but most crucially for i got included claims a. c minute for even killed thousands of innocent civilians. now, speaking outside the high court here this morning, we've heard from stella morris the partner who's incredibly disappointed and she is saying why and how is this happening? how long can this really go on for? and many people have been supporting her outside here. many, many protests is that also are similar questions there who is a glimmer of hope that you know, the british justice system might actually prevail for once. the british judiciary has assistive on every level the u. s. campaign god, judy and i to 10 years, 10 years in the streets of london, public opinion into suicide sounds. but obviously the judge's decision is
5:06 pm
not on the side of public opinion. it's absolutely devastating, especially this time of year for another christmas without doing that is children without their data stay on to fight to free. judy massage. that's what i say. we will prevail eventually. well, interestingly or ironically today is international human rights day. and many people outside as a high court to say, where is the human rights in the case of uranus, orange obviously listed on the foreground of the royal court of justice, that they call it the royal courts of injustice. and just as i did was being announced, i protest even through eggs at the side directly behind me was just goes to show the sentiment and feeling here on the streets of london. it's a complicated reason backstory. let me briefly bring you up to speed on how the sun sagas develop lately in 2019. he was forcefully removed by british police from ecuador,
5:07 pm
an embassy in london after kits are terminated. is 7 years solomon and fudge may have seen the pictures that we brought you 1st, that on roughly, well, they'd sought refuge in the building following sexual assault allegations and sweden, which then dropped the america once. the wikileaks found, or expedited on claims of conspiring to hat government computers and to publish classified material. in january this year, a british judge ruled against x voting him to the u. s. o professor, but his mental health, but at the same time also rejected his bail application claiming he may flee. earlier we spoke about it to john reese organizer of the don't. the extra though to sounds campaign, who believes that there won't be much progress in the world and tell freedom of press is universal. it's remarkable that especially on human rights day that the judges in this case should have found that it would be safe to extradite june assigned to the country where it's security service. the cia has
5:08 pm
previously been threatening to kidnap or kill him. it can't be there. all for democracy and freedom of speech in a free press in other people's countries, but not necessarily in their own. and until we get past that aqua see and understand that freedom of the price is a universal. ready human, right, because it's part of freedom of speech will be making very much progress in the very same document that they give those assurances that they say that they can be withdrawn at any time. no, that isn't a, an insurance. that's an inducement which can be taken away at the will of the person offering it. so i don't think that that assurance or any of the shortage is given by the united states can really be trusted in pursuing assange after he revealed classified information about american military activities during was in afghanistan and iraq. ah,
5:09 pm
with the mileage mm. i mean, a major publications like the guardian in london or the new york times, dare spiegel, they all published this material, in fact one awards for it. ah, julian, in factor was leaked the material and did what any publisher would do,
5:10 pm
which is to put it out. he's never been charged with publishing. material that is false or incorrect is a pre amazing track record are. but yes, it's very myopic on the part of a u. s. media outlets not to understand that if julian is extradited, which is unfortunately looking more and more likely are this will set a legal precedent that any journalist who has in their possession classified material or any publisher that publishes classified material can be held in criminal contempt. it changes the game completely and eviscerate any investigation into the inner workings of power rushes for a ministry slammed the court verdict highlighting that it's coincides too with the end of a summit for democracy hosted by the us this shameful vertex, in a political case against a journalistic and public figure is another manifestation of the cannibalistic
5:11 pm
world view of the anglo saxon tandem. the west marks international human rights day and the end of the summit for democracy with dignity. this news is devastating the persecution of julian asunder the disgrace. meanwhile, biden is holding his cynical democracy summit and the hypocrisy and the cruelty. we condemn today's u. k. high court decision to allow the expedition of julius on to the us, which will prove historic for all the wrong reasons. we fully believe that julian assigned has been targeted for his contributions to journalism. meantime, parallel a similar kind of story classified documents had been laid bare, showing how the u. s. appears to broken another diplomatic set of assurances. and another exhibition case, similar to the other julian sons guy's name, this time david mendoza. he says he only agreed to be expedited by madrid to america on the condition that he was allowed to serve any potential sentence in spain. however, he says, even saw the document with the american and spanish governments, assuring him of that condition. the end of the day,
5:12 pm
the u. s. still held him in jail for over 7 years before eventually returning him. but only after he took legal action against america. we spoke to journalist richard med hurst to release the documents in this particular case. you know, they've told us that he can serve any potential sentence in his home country australia. they said the exact same thing to mendoza. they told him just just let him come to the us and he can serve any sentence given back in spain. in mendoza's case, the united states signed a contract, an explicit contract with mendoza, and with spain saying that he must be returned to spain. he cannot be given a life sentence, he kinda be tried for concert structuring. they violated the, the u. s. kept him for 6 years and 9 months. the only reason mendoza was allowed to go back to spain is because he sued spain twice in the spanish supreme court. and he won and spain threatened to cut off the extradition treaty with the u. s. that is when the u. s. felt pressure, they wanted to keep extra dining people from spain. and so it's only because this
5:13 pm
was imperiled and in danger of being cancelled that they then sent him back and was extradited for drug trafficking and money laundering. and he told me, if they did that to him, if the united states did that to mendoza, what are they going to do to julian thought. this is a common practice. the united states violates its assurances. it's diplomatic agreements, whether it's iran, nuclear deal, whether it's, you know, a prison transfer assurances for a saundra window that they're going to violate the mark my words. this is going to happen. mendoza, certain of this. can i interviewed him for this? and he's seen dozens of people from spain, from columbia, from mexico, from all over the world, who've been given assurances. and once they get to the us, it's violated these documents that i published. they weren't seen by the court yet . they weren't submitted in court. and i'm convinced that if the judge had seen them, if the judge's study these documents, they could not let this extra sure go ahead because they've accepted that a song just suicidal. they've accepted the judge, apply the test correctly, that he would be even more suicidal. he would, he would drive an extradition to deal with, drive him to take like me,
5:14 pm
except at all this. so the only reason they allow the appeal to go ahead today was that the judge should have allowed us to give assurances before and that they trust us assurances, well, i'm very sorry, but these classified documents say otherwise you want to nationalize for moscow. it's kevin, over here with this. take you more the stories. this generated a lot of 1st the last 24 hours still run with occasions and follow from it. rush of warning, the west stove, a potential conflict in the crate after that ukrainian ship sailed dangerously close to russian waters without authorization. tell him all when we're back. ah, we've talked about the rising chance of civil war and america, and it could either be between the have yachts and the have nots. it could be between the big coin staves, like texas or florida, between the non bitcoin states. but the rising tension is comparable because of the rising genie coefficient that is found,
5:15 pm
they spread between the very top and the and the bottom is getting extremely why many of us full the delta would be the sort of peak i did. i could, well, you're not gonna get a sure any more transmissible than delta and not what's happened. you got something which is popped up with more than 30 changes in that spite protein that we're all interested in. it's accumulated, all the mutations we've seen in different very it's all in one virus. and that raises some very interesting issues about now, where did it come from in the 1st place? is it possible to get even more mutations? what's gonna happen in terms of disease severity and vaccine protection? so it is suggesting the know the virus is still got some way to go and we'll throw up some more surprises. ah,
5:16 pm
16 garcia, rushes foreign ministry is criticized the west for its behavior after a ukrainian warship approached russian territory last evening. warning that it could even lead to conflict in europe. i got the latest. my correspondence. caliber opened to new york and you know, shop vote in the crimea. that's where we had 1st. and not so long ago we heard from the russian foreign ministry regarding the latest incident in the crime in cursed trade. whether you cosca is concerned that nato complains strike missile systems with a minimum flight time to russia on ukrainian soil. so let's take a listen to what the ministry had to say. a cruise has been set to draw ukraine into nature. such irresponsible behavior is an unacceptable threat to our security provoking serious risks for all parties involved up to a large scale conflict in europe. earlier the f as b has call the actions of the ukrainian shipped on boss in the c, a bizarre,
5:17 pm
a provocation, and a threat to the safety of navigation back. just to remind you not far away for where i'm standing in the crime me and see to have courage, a collision between the russian and ukrainian fleets in the curse trade have nearly happened. it started when they don't boss ship left the port of mary. you poll says day morning and moved towards the curse trade. the ukrainian defense minister said they don't boss ship was in this see a result legally since it was a shed water area. express his surprise that moscow saw a threat from an unarmed searching rescue vessel. and also the ship incident took place at the same time when the talks between the president. so the united states on ukraine, joe biden, and of la demi zalinski were under way. crimean officials expressed concern and urged the un security council to discuss the problem that can lead to a wide spread confrontation. meanwhile, here encourage local people also see the latest incidents as provocation and hear
5:18 pm
some of the opinions at the young people will provoke gods. this is blatant provocation of it was intended to show that as biden's lensky spoke. russia was restricting passage for ukrainian shelley through the car. right, right. or could i am confident that there was a t b chrome board ready to comb recorded bowl as it acts as jupiter they wanted to paint russia is guilty. they always blame russia for medium thought. fornia yellow that looking on the grounds, little rock arkansas for the word explain a little teeny with the kids and they are likely doing it and furthest to anger. russia on the sheet of the jets is just a pleasant way, provoke the po, see you? yes. brooklyn, i'm at least with russia, look simple yet towards me too. and i say they're going to be of you who did you or heard from really over her feelings are running high and all the negotiations and the diplomacy them going on that very day. so was this unexpected, this incident last night, given everything? julia's said, these provocations haven't simply been going on for a couple weeks. they've been happening for quite some time. there's been quite
5:19 pm
a pattern of escalation of the u. s. media has been playing up this idea that russia is planning an invasion of ukraine. russia has been adamant that they are not doing any such thing. we now have joe biden coming forward and saying that as a result of his recent talks with putin or the threat of russia supposedly invading ukraine ah, has been lifted up. but we have various voices in us media who are saying they're not so sure about biden's effectiveness in terms of diplomacy. and they think there could be a danger of war on the horizon. here's some of what we've heard. do not discount no matter how far fetched it may seem, a hot war with russia. yes, that is a lunatic idea. but that doesn't mean joe biden won't do it. now these statements don't seem baseless. if you look at what's actually been taking place along the border, you can talk about the intensification of activity from u. s. strategic bomber aviation. and russia has come forward and said that the
5:20 pm
united states is actually, we're her sing dropping, dropping nuclear bombs near the ukranian russian border. this point, members of the u. s. congress are coming out and saying that they would consider bombing russia. now, there's been a firestorm of criticism from their colleagues. i would not rule out american troops on the ground. we don't do, you know, we don't rule out 1st use nuclear. no action, any one who would propose or even consider what he is saying as an option must be insane. a sociopath or assayed us launch a nuclear attack that would start a war that would destroy the american people, our country, and the world, so that we can save ukraine's democracy. i mean, it, it literally is insane. now the backdrop for all of this is the intense division within us society. i, we have a situation in the white house, says one thing, other politicians are saying something completely different will be waiting to see
5:21 pm
how this further develops. yeah, the news wants to consider to comes as ukraine's president zalinski says he doesn't rule out a referendum on the don bus ridge and breaking away at meantime, the u. s. revealed on thursday that 30 javelin anti tank missiles systems were delivered to you credit in october. at he's seen a correspondent where goes here. tell me more about a wider look at the ukraine. tensions right now, the situation on the ground in ukraine is perhaps, worst of all because that is where people are dying. people are dying. people are suffering. people are going through through hell and have been going through hell for many years that we have. we have seen the united states, specifically pumping weapons into ukraine for the ukrainian military. and these are weapons b, b, b, they a javelin miss are supplied by the united states or by dr. drones supplied by turkey. these are, these are weapons that are flowing into ukraine and immediately going to the conflicts of where the civil war is being fought in the east of ukraine. there are
5:22 pm
more than 2000000 civilians are trapped in the conflict soon in east than ukraine. and they're just having to break it out, people going to sending their kids to school. they will have to worry about a tang cello, a mortar round landing. they're on the grounds of the school. vladimir putin is like and what is happening to a war cra, sorta see, i should say the rooster phobias, the 1st step towards genocide. what's going on and on bass now very much resembles genocide. we see it and we know about it. all we hear about is these potential plans emanating from the she, i am the white house, the british government. these plans that no one previously knew about that russia was planning to invade. a huge area of ukraine does unclear how they would be able to achieve this with, with, even if we believe the c i and others with, with such a small force. but let's look at what is happening again on the graph. do you have
5:23 pm
the o. s. c that reporting on c's for violation. so their work is constant and round the clock. ukrainian artillery and forces destroyed or damaged 5 times more civilian infrastructure at schools at workplace as that is people's homes. 5 times more infrastructure was destroyed and damaged by ukrainian forces than vice versa. you also have the situation in which you, ukraine, still still 6 years on, refuses to negotiate with the breakaway republics. aside from that, there are also all manner of promises and assurances that ukraine keeps on hearing from, from britain, from the united states that they've got their back, that thou help them, that they'll keep the russians awake. and what are, what that does is it emboldens you credit. and unfortunately, the situation is such that aside from very one sided coverage, you have a situation in which piece simply isn't desirable. i see corresponding with me
5:24 pm
earlier, we spoke to, to a jonas, nor for thomas fast bedroom, things that escalation of ukraine must be stopped before it potentially spiral that a control there is something that has not been here for decades. that is the perspective of the re perspective of a major european war. so he and now the key for a potential war in europe lives now 100 percent with the, the key of government if key, if the sites to provoke russian invasion. and there will be a russian invasion as soon as g of starts a major offensive against the break of a republics. in that case, automatically. busy the blank check will be full of western support for the ukrainian side. so the wisdom narrative says that whatever crimea, whatever key it does to reclaim or even reconquer the breakaway republics,
5:25 pm
or even crimea, would be executing their sovereign rights on this over in territory. we should hope that, that both washington and moscow and of course, also also paris and bolen understand that there is a real risk of a european war here. the you and the i m f and the world bank a no longer the all encompassing institutions. they used to be wrapped according to the us national security advisor, who says there's a need for more adaptive and flexible structures in guiding global policies. these days we have entered a phase, i believe in foreign policy and international relations where it's no longer the formal, you know, the united nation and the i, m f and the world bank and so forth. we now have more of a complex mix of structures. the thomas taco both thing time publishes annual review democracy around the world and added the u. s. is now in the back sliding
5:26 pm
category for the 1st time. we discussed it with political on this week to go things america's unqualified these days to judge of the countries on the issue. this whole beating is a foster. it's very much to visit, but it's not constructive. and it's not helpful for the real development and growth of democracy and human rights. and also there are about 100 countries, including very important countries, like china and russia, both permanent member states of the united nations security council, which have been deliberately turned outside of this meeting. i think these are the states has no qualification to put itself as if it is the preacher of democracy. why should it? because they don't have a perfect record at home about democracy, about human rights, and they are infamous about the violation of the minority is right. for example,
5:27 pm
there is huge discrimination against the rights of the american people in american people, asian american people, you name it us is facing his highest annual inflation rate and 39 years with price increases seen across many sectors for 6 months in a row. in november prices for us, consumers g m 6.8 percent compared to the previous year. the acceleration triggered by the corona virus pandemic, mainly is spread to almost all spheres from food and industry to house rentals and cars. but the u. s. federal service still hesitant to take serious measures to tackle it, like raising interest rates. i spoke to pedro oil of the american institute, free coming research. she says, hire inflation drives. people though to take a more dead. there's a viewed and low level inflation is i is good for the economy. i'm not sure i subscribed to that, but certainly the kind of inflation we're seeing now is, are very pernicious that makes life doubt as many aspects of the economy may weight
5:28 pm
in the pandemic. or rather, the central banking responses the pandemic is the main factor on the screen in place right now. last year, the federal reserve increase the years, monies are supplied by between 30 and 40 per cent, and the root cause inflation is lots of money chasing the same are fewer goods and services. so that's the main one that is going to try to lift interest rates to, to tap down this question, but they can't do they stop to open market bond purchases? nate said they won't stop back until april or may of next year. so it's gonna be a while this employees may get a bit higher before they're able to do that. don't even really benefit from high inflation, systematically r r r r creditors because you take debt and inflation rises, you wind up paying off that debt in cheaper was a mess, less valuable currency, whether it's dollars or pounds or whatever. so in a sense it wasn't hires. ah, inflation rather promotes a higher levels of debt which is also bad thing. big osa calais? well, that said the way that he's looking for martha international so far,
5:29 pm
i would nice it to one i am shown to an off and i reporting fic. my name is ben kevin ali. thanks for dropping in. coming up. dennis miller plus one ah. join me every thursday on the alex salmon show. i'll be speaking to guess on the well the politics small business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm. hey folks. next up, a convivial bloke, a great broadcaster, and was a beast on a football field. a mod rashad will be here. i'll talk about a mod golf game. he's got a new game show over there, something about tug of words. he says a tug a word with the binoculars rolled in over on the game show network, but whatever he's doing, i guarantee it, he's having
