us withdrawal and afghan may have been found ortiz, thanks to the family that took the boy in and joined the search for his real parents. suddenly i saw this baby on the ground crying in pain was too hot, and the baby was just wearing shirts. so it was difficult for me to leave him there . ah, hello, it's the weekly from our 2 things we're going to take you through some of the bigger stories coming here over the past 7 days, and also the weekends developments as well. welcome to the program. first them tensions over ukraine ran high this week with russia slamming the west for fueling the escalation and also voicing concern at nato's actions in the region. moscow says they could potentially lead to a large scale conflict. the escalation occurred after a ukrainian navy ship approached russia waters without authorization. on thursday evening, i moved that russia regarded as a threat to the navigational safety of other vessels in the area. ukraine denied
2:02 am
all allegations and insisted the ship was an unarmed search and rescue vessel that never entered restricted waters, nor opposed to any threat. the vessel did eventually change course. are you? crime is also the main topic of discussion. the twins that he may have. who's in and joe biden on tuesday, the u. s. president pointed out what he called the threatening nature of russian troop movements near the ukrainian border and said severe sanctions were being drawn up. moscow though, insist that it can move its troops wherever it once saw its own territory. while saying that its nato, that's making dangerous moves the criminal spokesperson talk to r t, about how the military alliance, his actions are being regarded in russia. it is through the 92 acres, which are the rhetoric coming from the u. s. and e u leaders sounds pretty aggressive. we see plenty of fake news about russia allegedly planning and aggressive invasion. at the same time, no one talks to care of non warns care of against even thinking of a military intervention in the done yet elegance, conflicts, millenniums, toneta shown to mice. now we see that nato is taking an extremely aggressive
2:03 am
position burst. 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 forth. all of this is and interests. and while ukraine in the west indies, russia reforming the self proclaimed republics in eastern, you crave the u. s. is openly sending arms to care. washington revealed with a 30 javelin anti tank missiles. systems were delivered to ukraine in october, as part of a $60000000.00 military aid package and a further $200000000.00 could be on the table as well. now, one of russia's long and unchanging calls is that nato doesn't expand its presence further east. closer to russia's borders, joe biden, though doesn't seem to think that applies to him. yes, oh. of course, the diplomacy is out and red lines of that to be crossed when the big bad wolf is
2:04 am
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 a 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, they're 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
2:05 am
. so what is washes red line, us spy pained jetting towards russia's borders. passenger jets with hundreds of civilians on board, diverted because a nato re complain was to close and wouldn't respond to ground control. the actions by the u. s. air force created a 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 the system a better one or multiple missile systems just across the 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 planting. massage, defense systems have already been deployed and they can easily be converted into offensive missile systems that targets us. it only takes
2:06 am
a matter of minutes to change the software. 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, nater 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, tony 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 or bit of the alliance, the de facto start of natives, assimilation of the military infrastructure of this country. and the desire to turn
2:07 am
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 a get out of jail free card because in politics, well promises are made to be broken. where is that? where is that written down? where is that from? was written down and under the validity friend among the rich good. and that you think will let you go when i stuck, not what to do it. in the meantime, the u. s. unfazed by its terrible track record l predicting russian behavior is covering its bases and drawing up some economic thank says, you know, just in case i was making of sanctions. washington's already threatened moscow with some extreme measures and globally the penalties are central tool of u. s. foreign policy, washington's just rubbed china up the wrong way by imposing a diplomatic boycott on the upcoming winter olympics. it's also just impose sanctions on 14 officials and 4 entities in iran and syria. though for rights of pieces, we discussed the role and impact of america's punitive policies with
2:08 am
a panel of guests who agreed on that destructive nature essentially got. you've got a view in washington that it's us, it's american exceptionalism and supremacy. and they are basically, they're there, they're doing whatever they can to, you know, we're, we're mirror, it's a very arrogant, aggressive policy. and they use the sanctions. and if it really is a means to destabilize other countries, sovereign nations, it creates economic hardships early. why do you think america is threatening to sanction russia for something that a has not happened and b will not happen according to the kremlin. but i think in one way it's a political move on, on that side. the other part is a hey we need, we need a boogie man and i think partially, there were lose our influence. and it's kind of like a rabid dog. you know, you start to lash out in different ways trying to protect yourself. and the only
2:09 am
one policy we have of those things and is this kind of destructive approach to international relations. but it's, it's just so silly because ultimately you're throwing off the brand here. single. how do you think that the continental united states is to survive? if it makes a devastated mess of the rest of the world, do you think any western power seriously believes russia is about to invade ukraine? you know, it's hard to understand the logic. what could moscow stand to gain from, from starting a war? well, i think that the western governments do well know that this is rather a blame game. they make the public belief that russia is a real threat to the ukraine at the moment. russia is really in defense because they have to fear that ukraine will become a part of the nato alliance. and this is, of course,
2:10 am
a major threat to the geopolitical setting of russia. cutting russia off. busy from swift would be the most extreme of measures deployed yet it happened to iran, devastated the economy. is there any chance of washington pursuing what's being called a nuclear option based on their questionable diplomats that they potentially good. i think be very unwise move, very little impact, i think internally, externally it would, it would kind of back fire. i would think rub europeans would be very strongly lobbying against such an action. and if you're going to set off to do something like that, presumably not the goal. well, let's just like opening a black hole up under the international banking system. we're seeing what's happening and showing with a grunt warbling and the property market possibly going down the drain. uncles, if that happens, that's going to pull down the western banking system potentially
2:11 am
o me mall this week, president putin hailed india as a longstanding friend of moscow. following his talks with prime minister and the render mowdy in new delhi, it was that he may put in 2nd trip abroad. since the pandemic started. artie spoke to the ceo of invest india, who described how russia india relation to taking on new dimensions. not just important for the russian community or business, it's important for all of us. and even for all of us in india, it's a very special relationship that is a very strong level of trust. now what you've got to do is to work on the opportunities together and the opportunities arise from the synergies. and that is where the strength of this relationship, the business to business relationship, which has been there for years. but now we're seeing it taking on completely new dimensions. i've seen the joint statement on the kremlin website. it has 99 paragraphs or this numbers huge in your field. if we're talking about the
2:12 am
investment, what are the most promising areas this time around? and what's most important for the special rush, hapless team dedicated to investments from russia has handled over $200.00 business requests. these 200 business requests out across 37 sector. the depth and breadth of this relationship has extended itself beyond an unprecedented scale . oil and gas, as you know, was always one of the old favorites, which still continues and goes on very strongly. but then you have the new one state construction food processing, energy, again, an old one, but a new one. again, i t, business processes, metal and mining was always there. banking, automobile aviation defense has always been one of the biggest billus of the solution to those and stunted instantly got stronger. barber chemicals, capital goods, healthcare you will see a strong pillar of healthcare in each of these opportunities. this is where this
2:13 am
partnership is becoming stronger. and these opportunities, why am stressing on the number of these opportunities as the base becomes wider, the relationship becomes stronger. and that is what we are witnessing today. a dark day for journalism this how julian sanchez supporters, reacted to the british. i court ruling on friday that the wiki leeks found a can be extradited to the u. s. washington wanted to appeal against a previous decision blocking us on from being sent to america, the faith trial on espionage charges. a campaign of slammed the latest ruling which was handed down on the un human rights day. we condemn today's u. k. high court decision to allow the expedition of julian so on. so the us, which will prove historic for all the wrong reasons. we fully believe that julian saw and has been targeted for his contributions to journalism. back in october, those a to day, harry, i was the united states trying to appeal over numerous grounds,
2:14 am
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 maximum security conditions in prison, and that he isn't unwell this thing he's made out of continue to say that he is indeed after 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 prompted to kill him speaking outside the high court. this morning. we've heard from stella morris to partner who's incredibly disappointed and she's saying why and how is this happening for? how long can this go on today is international human rights day?
2:15 am
what a shame, how cynical to, how this decision on this day to have one of the foremost the foremost publisher journalists of the past, 50 years in a u. k. prison, accused of publishing the truth about or crimes about cia killed teams. many people have been supporting her outside here. many, many protests is that also are similar questions. who is a glimmer of hope that you know, the british justice system might actually prevail for once? the british judiciary, this is on every level with the u. s. campaign to get a nice july to 10 years, 10 years in the streets of london, public opinion and business side, a sound. but obviously,
2:16 am
the judge's decision is not on the side of public opinion. it's absolutely devastating. so she, this time of year to another christmas about, do you know that is children without their dad stay on the fight to free judy. massage, the choice. we will prevail eventually many people outside as a high court say, where is the human rights? in the case of june assange, obviously listed on the foreground of the royal court of justice, that they call it the royal court of injustice. now i spoke with julian assad. beyond a are in this i just as i did was being announced, i protest even through eggs at this side, directly behind me, which just goes to show the sentiment and feeling here on the streets of london or
2:17 am
his. i would go to this point in 20. 19 julian songs was forcefully removed by british police from acquittals embassy in london. after the country terminated his 7 year asylum there. it's still refuge after sexual assault obligations in sweden, which will later prompt british authorities arrested him on a separate charge of jumping bail. or america wants the wiki leagues founder extradited on claims of conspiring to hat government computers and publishing classified material. meanwhile, a sanchez fiance claims he suffered a stroke during a hearing in october. wikileaks, editor in chief, kristen robinson, talked to us following fridays ruling was actually on believable. and so i run a good disposition should be handed on the united nations human rights. the united states had all opportunity in the madison court to make those so called us your and it did not. it simply press them forward. after the last in the menus court, in general,
2:18 am
the united states had given assurances that the they would to treat the julian fairly and he would get that treatment and be housed in an adequate to jail and could even server the new sentence if he gets one in australia, all of these so called assurance and have been and been investigated by human rights organizations such as amnesty international and found that the us you are. and so some of the work and paper they're written on. they are simply not reliable . we are dealing here with a nation where individuals on the top level in the junior, the top level of the cia and in the white house contemplated, kidnapping were killing julian assaults. this is not a case that is being fought on the basis of the more this is an absolutely try to steal any legal process. this is a political case, and the julian arrest, as we have said, for many, many years is
2:19 am
a political persecution of development. this weekend now devastating storms over it through parts of central and southern us with the most damage in kentucky. president biden says it might be the most disastrous series of tornadoes strikes in american history. rescue workers have already found more than 40 missing people amid the damage buildings. but there are concerns that the number of deaths could exceed a 100 shelters have been opened with the help of the red cross. and kentucky governor has declared a state of emergency his local reporter edgar costa. this is the severe destruction that we can see in many places across different states were several tornadoes. how he did really hard. the worst part here in mayfield, kentucky. the governor of the state announced that 70 people lost their life on these trials. you get the so this has been the most devastating tornado event in our state's history. the level of devastation is unlike anything i've ever seen. satellite far too many homes,
2:20 am
that people were likely an entirely devastated this will be, i believe, the deadliest tornado system to ever run through kentucky. the devastation we can see here to see, to center. he says something that will take a long time to recuperate. but many people took the streets. we can see lots of see to since that got together to do all they can wendy's hard time with a face of these images show the destruction of what was a candle factory. it roof collapsed after the tornado struck. authorities say that more than a 100 people may have been inside when the building was hit by the storm. tornadoes have also wreaked havoc in other parts of central and southern u. s. 6. people are dead in the state of illinois where the roof of an amazon warehouse was brought down during the stool. in our console, one person still trooping, killed and 5 seriously injured after a tornado damaged a nursing home that many of us were trapped inside. the survey where there's also claimed at least 4 lives in tennessee,

a turning off some of the u. s. troop withdrawal from afghanistan. many were moved by the scenes of desperate parents passing their babies to western soldiers to get them taken out of the country. one child was lost in the chaos at cobble apple, but now there's a possibility that the baby boy may have been identified. the care of picks up the story. the hasty us decisions or poor trips out of afghanistan as the taliban gained a tighter grip. so a wave of panic in the capital of thousands desperately tried to flee. amongst the chaotic scenes that cobble airport were merged, our commodity and his wife sariah and the 5 children and the pushing and shoving the parents fit that tiny baby would be crushed. and so i handed him to a us soldier who offered to help, but amid the crowds of people struggling to enter, it took them over 30 minutes to make it through. and once they did, the hail, the baby was nowhere to be found. the house parents who are now in the united states and still desperately trying to locate that son. and now comes
2:22 am
a glimmer of hope, ought to spoken to one african family, the johns, who say they found the baby amid them a hand cobble airport. he's been well taken care of the john family named him mohammed and say he's become one of the things i love, the new brother mohammed, he's too important to me and will never hand him over to anyone my to show it was late at night when my brother asked me to help him drive to the airport when he was leaving for the us. when we were there, there was a big crowd and chaos. everyone was pushing to get inside the airport. suddenly i saw this baby on the ground crying in pain. it was too hot and the baby was just wearing a shirt. i was confused and it was difficult for me to leave him there. he was dying. so i decided to pick him up. when i moved to each family i saw in the airport and show them the baby and ask them whether the baby belonged to them. then i asked each mother to feed him because he was hungry,
2:23 am
but no one agreed. his condition was deteriorating, so i took him to some water and put it on his body, washed him and changed his nappy. i waited until 4 pm to find his parents, but couldn't. i had just one bottle of water and i gave him a few drops when he was crying because he was hungry, i was because his condition was not good. it was too hot and he was lying under the scorching heat of the sun. then i contacted my wife and told her that my brother had already left, but i'm still stuck here because of a baby. i told her we are humans and i can't leave this baby alone here while his parents are missing. i also told my brother to leave, but i had to stay until i found the missing parents. let's take a look at these 2 pictures on the right is the missing boys, the hail our commodity. while on the left is the child found and cared for by the john family. while there are clearly similarities. here is yet to be established. if this is the same child, the afghan man who found the boy said he's now in touch with. the parents have been
2:24 am
missing baby. intellectually, we kept the baby and contacted many people to find the parents. we contacted the b, b, c in many others, but failed to find them. then we uploaded his pictures on social media sites like facebook later, some relatives of a missing baby. and barrack sean province contacted us and told us that the parents of the baby are looking for their child. when they saw the images, they recognize him, but they didn't know the whereabouts of the parents. finally i found the contact details of the father of this baby i called and told him about his missing baby and asked him to send me the pictures of his child. so i could verify that he was the real father. then he sent me the pictures and we confirmed your son is with us, don't worry. his father was so happy to learn about his missing son. we would love to see the hell reunited with his parents, that they were still trying to establish where this, the hail and mechanic are the same child. we go to work on this. we've been in touch with both families, the new york post. reuters the u. s. state department and the afghan refugee relief

2:30 am
letters. interesting course, do we know with any virus infection? the spreading, you will get changes, you'll get mutations. this has been happening all the while, and of course these mutations all sort of selected for those are going to be more infectious or deed are able to evade part of our immune system. so whizzing this all the time. the only way to quote this actually is to get people back so they did actually spread the virus. so sadly, of these viruses all the time, many of us who get infected will be infected with more than one variant anyway. and it's just a bit of a game in terms of chasing the genetics of the virus and trying to suppress these changes by dampening transmission. and the way you do that is by vaccination. so i hope we get to a phase where we don't have to exhaust the whole of the greek alphabet, but i only have 9 letters left. so given the in the speed of the mutations,
