could rush here. it's kevin, over here with you. it outside world use h q with a weekly roundup of the big stories abroad of the last 7 days. and as you heard the 1st of tensions of ukraine. ron hy, this week with russia criticizing the west for fueling, the escalation of voicing concern nato's actions in the region. moscow saying it could potentially lead to a large scale conflict. the escalation happened after a ukrainian navy ship approached russian waters with our authorization on thursday evening. move to russia, regarded as a threat to the navigational safety of other vessels in the area. ukraine denied litigations that insisted the ship was an unarmed search and rescue vessel that never entered a stick to the waters or posed any threat. it did eventually change course. ukraine was the main topic of discussion to between the lead him approach and, and joe biden. on tuesday, the us president pointing at what he called the threatening nature of russian troop movements near the ukrainian border. and said, severe sanctions have been drawn up. moscow insisted can move its troops wherever
2:02 pm
it once on its own territory, while saying its nato that's making the dangerous moves the kremlin spokesperson talking to r t direct. but how nato's actions are being perceived here in russia is 2 to 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 key of against even thinking of a military intervention in it and yet elegance, conflict, moving him on addition to math. now we see that nato is taking an extremely aggressive 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 aim to deter russia. we do not like that. we will do everything to ensure our own interests. while ukraine on the west accuse russia revolving the self proclaimed republics and
2:03 pm
isa ukraine, the u. s. is openly setting obstacles. meantime, motion to reveal that 30 javan anti missile systems were delivered to you. create an october as part of a $60000000.00 military aid package and the for the $200000000.00 on the table to and with the ongoing military build upon russia's borders of the news lines for you . the g 7 group of advanced economies now threatened russia with a severe response if it attacks ukraine. moscow, though, denies any plans of an invasion and insist its nature which poses a threat to russia by expanding further east, closer to its borders. but the white house believes that only it, it seems, has the right to draw the line out and read lines of that to be crossed when the big bad wolf is 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
2:04 pm
was supposedly the mastermind of the crew in kiev. remember the coming key of know me neither 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 no threat to any country. the deployment of russian troops on the national territory is sovereign right. and no one's business. it is nato and its members states that recklessly moving their military force it an infrastructure to the russian borders. so what is washes red line, u. s. spy pains jetting towards russia, borders pass to jets with hundreds of civilians on board. diverted because
2:05 pm
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 a 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 issues was nature? you know, a u. s. warship has now entered the black sea. we can see it through binoculars or the crosshairs of our defense system system. a better one or multiple missile systems just across the fence. it wouldn't it. but with him look at where nato's military infrastructure is located, just a short distance from our borders in romania, poland, which once we saw, defend systems have already been deployed and they can easily be converted into offensive missile systems that targets us. it's only takes a matter of minutes to change the software. now, instinct tells me that it's a russian destroy. i was spotted steaming and to new york harbor. it would be a flaming red line for washington. but believe it or not for us all, this is
2:06 pm
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 inch. 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 over to the lions. the de facto starts of native assimilation of the military infrastructure of this country. and the desire to turn it into a foothold for confrontation with russia could all cause to be a 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
2:07 pm
a made to be broken. where we've got written down. whereas that from we sit down and under the religious friend among the rich good. and that you think what you want to do it, it's in the meantime, the us on phased by its terrible track record of predicting russian behavior is covering its bases and drawing up some economic sanctions, you know, just in case well, now there's a new development snyder tell you about the ongoing frictions of place, the recently completed nord stream to gas pipeline under threat. it runs a cause from russia to germany under the baltic sea and is awaiting its official launch. but just a few hours ago, us stayed secretary absent blank and said it is unlikely, the gas will flow through it. spinning the claim of russia's aggression and ukraine . let's get daniel showing on this professor of the city university of new york. hey, thanks for your time. this is a disappointing, i suppose, for
2:08 pm
a lot of people in europe to see because they're relying on this gas coming through the blade winter coming up. looks increasingly unlikely. what is the white house so desperate to stop? nord stream to good afternoon, kevin. this is part of the ramping up over economic, military and diplomatic pressure on our russia. it's nato in the us that continue to encroach upon our rushes borders. the absolute hypocrisy that's on display here with blinkin biden's and threats to try to cripple the russian economy. imagine if it was a russia surrounding the united states, the way that nato in the us continually encroaches into the black sea into estonia into ukraine. so ukraine is the latest justification to continue this new cold war . this new global class struggle was really behind. this is fear and us ruling circles of a sovereign strong or russia. yeah, i mean,
2:09 pm
what's not stream to got to do with anything that is going on. this kind of, of the frictional is happening at the moment. this is a purely commercial thing designed to bring much needed gas through a pipe under the say to europe. yes, this will, i have an impact on the russian people on different business interests on different european nations. will i do it so? so of course, and on the u. s. as well, this is part and parcel of the hybrid war is the hybrid wars that we see against the boulevard in camp and land america against china. this is the unipolar hedge of mine, in decline, afraid of more, ah, multi polar world, where different countries can team up together in overcome the sanctions in the blockades, in the hybrid war. so that's what this entire war effort is and here in the west here in the united states,
2:10 pm
we only hear about quote unquote rushes aggression. but they never mention that nato in the us of the ones that since 1991 after james baker promised the secretary of state at the time that nato would never creep even one inch east every day. they creeped further and further in violation of rushes, borders, and sovereignty. we've also got her g 7 group advanced economies as well. this was much singular on threatening russia, with a severe response, a detox you crate. these threats themselves are pretty dangerous, and again, russia said has got no intention of doing anything like that. and the troops has got on its own borders. it can do what it likes with its own borders. why this rhetoric tonight in this was the same rhetoric coming out of the hypocritical, named democracy summit that bite in host it, which was really an embarrassment for the g 7 countries, the junior partners of the united states. this had nothing to do with democracy. this was a euphemism for, really was the imperialist club. the unipolar are club bed, so afraid of
2:11 pm
a strong sovereign are russia. they want to return russia to the neo colonial vassal, stayed that it was, and a boris yeltsin post soviet union. that was really behind oliver lincoln's latest threats. daniel shore, professor of the a city university, new york. thank you. thank you, kevin. a dante for journalism. that's how jesus sanchez support has reacted to the british high call ruling friday that the wikileaks found a can be expedited to the u. s. washington. one, it's appeal against a previous decision. locking assange from being sent to america to face trial and espionage charges. campaign is slammed. the latest move which was handed down on what was the u n's he would write stay we condemn today's u. k. high court decision to allow the expedition of julian so on. so the u. s. 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,
2:12 pm
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. over there and that he isn't unwell is being, 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. not any point. class is also concerned about the trustworthiness of america's guarantees to pointing to one of those reports in the year that the cia had prompted to kidnap during the saw pro, to, to kill him 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 for? how long can this go on today is international human rights day?
2:13 pm
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 10 years, 10 years in the streets of london, public opinion, and this is a sound. but obviously the judge's decision is not on the side
2:14 pm
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 at home? stay on the fight to free. judy massage. that's all. i say we will prevail. eventually, many people outside 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, but they call it the royal courts of injustice. a magic now i with julian assad beyond a are in this call 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.
2:15 pm
yeah, huge bag story here, of course, put the most recent twist and turns in 20. 19 during assange was forcefully removed by british police from ecuador embassy, london. after the country terminated his 7 year asylum there, he'd sought refuge after sexual assaults, allegations and sweden, which related dropped. the british authorities arrested him on a separate charge of jumping bale. america wants to wick helix found her extradited on claims of conspiring to hat government computers and publishing classified material. meantime, as sanchez fiance claims, he suffered a stroke during a hearing in october. wikileaks, editor in chief, kristen have friends and talk to his following fridays ruling. was actually in believable and so i run a good decision should be 100 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 of court in january,
2:16 pm
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 his entrance 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, those are you are just not worth the 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 or killing julian sons. this is not a case that is being fought on the basis of the more. this is an absolute travis to any legal process. this is a political case, and the julian arrest us we have said for many, many years is
2:17 pm
a political persecution your with our international the channel. the question is more, thanks for company this week candidate. more than news making headlines. and after the break, unprecedented tornadoes have been breaking hub, look across central and southern parts of the united states is left many dead, uninjured. ah ah, with
2:18 pm
to what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is an offense. very dramatic development. the only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult. time. time to sit down and talk. oh hi. good, terrible. where the devastating storms ripping through central and southern parts of the u. s. with kentucky suffering. some of the worst damage rescue workers
2:19 pm
already far more than 40. missing people amid the damage buildings. and there are concerns, the number of deaths could exceed a 100 shelters, had been opened up with the help of the red cross. and kentucky's governors 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 where several tornadoes have heated, 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 the level of devastation is unlike anything i've ever seen. satellite far too many homes. the people were likely an entirely devastated the devastation. we can see here to see the center. he says something that will take a long time to recuperate. but many people took the streets. we can see lots of citizens that got together to do all they can wendy's hard time with the tornadoes, the talk through parts the u. s. of not only left a path of destruction,
2:20 pm
but also political division to ah, a worst, most devastating, most badly tornado of that. and kentucky's history there's our home town and it's just devastating. everybody's off their laws. we're shaking house collapsing against the do you see where the whole house is buckled? the well back side of this house is all total devastation for all town. most for historic buildings are now gone. ah.
2:21 pm
is likely to win the largest tornado breaks in our history. and higher towns were destroyed as some 30 powerful tornadoes, ravaged across thick us states the worst effected can. saki needs help support and relief aid. and so it turns to the government and fellow americans. but politics is politics, and it seems not even a monumental disaster, like this one can bridge america's political divide. and some believe it's a perfect opportunity to show that you reap what you sow. when hurricane harvey's hit in 2017, the 17 senators who voted against a bill to provide billions of dollars in relief. well, all republicans among them, kentucky's sen run to pull once again thousands of suffering. but there's no time like the present for political punches. we should do all we can to help our
2:22 pm
kentucky neighbors. good wisdom. they're hurting, but do not for one second. forget that rand pole has voted against help. and most americans, most times, very neat. we now ran paul is a heartless hypocrite. the people in kentucky deserved their relief regardless of their before nish leadership. but if the damage done, he is this against him and his party in the future. it's a missed opportunity for some it's not even off limits to suggest that if you vote read, then you had it coming. vote for climate change, deny isn't. see what happens. tornadoes in december are red, but weather climate change was a factor is not clear at this point. still is the country reels and shock and concerns of the climate change peak. it could also play into the democrats hands as a bit to push a $1.00 trillion dollar climate package through the senate. all i know is that the intensity of the weather across the board has some impact as
2:23 pm
a consequence of the warming of the planet and the climate change. and so it seems something as devastating as this can only, what's the appetite for those looking to score political points. american journalists are being threatened with massive fines if they work for what a perceived to be the wrong publications to contribute is that to a side called the strategic culture foundation of receive stern warnings from the us treasury. this letter was sent to daniela's, michael virchow, who both new york based journalists. it says the s c f is on a list of band organizations accused of election meddling, and that us citizens who engage in transactions with the foundation a liable to fines of at least get this 300000 dollars. small daniela's share this experience with us. it was a warning regarding future articles. so essentially, if i write for sci fi and gauge and any kind of transaction,
2:24 pm
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 se yes, since the previous, you know, of 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 from 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 the threats makeup. part of
2:25 pm
a targeted sanctions campaign announced 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 russia malign behavior. the u. s. government claims the strategic culture foundation is in fact controlled by rushes for an intelligence agency, the s b, and it's also linked to the russian foreign ministry. the foundation denies this and calls itself a research platform about rage and global affairs. but johnny lazar says a dangerous president, sol, ready being set. i think of the that the at the s. c f, the foundation hosts honest journalism. even though out i don't, i don't agree with much of it. this is, this is serious work by serious journalists. and that as a supporter of a free speech in 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 down. and therefore trying to stop
2:26 pm
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 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 can say anything we want. yeah, i can write the most outrageous things about george w bush or joe biden and not have to worry for a moment about a the search secret police crashing through my door. but now. 2 things may be changing slightly and it doesn't the order. well, some news headlines in brief, multiple people confirmed killed tonight. numerous others still missing out for a massive gas explosion on the italian hours of sicily. the bloss completely
