the largest and most powerful employer in such a situation. it's remarkably civilized. huh. in the stories that shaped the week here are 2 international tensions spiraled after a ship belonging to ukraine's navy approaches rushing waters without authorization, something moscow has slammed as a threatening provocation. described as a dark day for journalism, selina sanchez, supporters lash out at the london high court ruling to allow his possible expedition to the united states. yet another hearing is now needed to decide his fate. it's. it's not a case that is being fought on the basis that law. this is an absolute trouble. steel. i mean legal process and devastating tornadoes tear through parts of america, claiming at least 80 lives in the state of kentucky. alone with the death toll
feared to exceed 100, joe biden says it's possibly the worst tornado outbreak in the u. s. history. ah. my guessing live direct from our studios in moscow. recapping the week's top stories with our weekly program, this is our t international. are now tensions over ukraine ran high this week with russia criticizing the west for fueling, the escalation and voicing concern at nato's actions in the region. moscow saying it could potentially lead to a large scale conflict, and the escalation happened to after a ship belonging to the ukranian navy approach russian waters without authorization on thursday evening. and moved that russia regarded as a threat to the navigational safety of other vessels in the area. ukraine denied all allegations and insisted the ship was an unarmed search and rescue vessel that never entered restricted waters or posed any threat. and it did eventually change
course ukraine was the main topic of discussion between vladimir putin and joe biden. on tuesday, us president pointed out that he called the threatening nature of russian troop movements near the ukrainian border and said severe sanctions were being drawn up. moscow though insists it can move its troops wherever it wants to on its own territory, while saying its nato, that is making the dangerous moves the kremlin spokes person talk to r t about how nato's actions are being regarded in russia. could you see jeanette intuitive, which is rhetoric is coming from the u. s. and e u leaders sounds pretty aggressive . we see plenty of fake news about russia allegedly planning an aggressive invasion . at the same time, no one talks to kia, non warns cube against even thinking of a military intervention in the millions when the guns conflict. now moving in on that issue and you might, you know, we need that need. so you're taking an extremely aggressive issue, or they all say they don't accept any red line back. and they say that nato will do
what everyone wants, that it will do it on whatever territory one day. i mean, for all of this is a, for russia, we do not like dining. we will do everything to insure our own interest. while ukraine and the west accused rush of arming, the self proclaimed republics in eastern ukraine. the u. s. is openly sending arms to give washington revealed that 30 javelin anti tank missile systems were delivered to ukraine in october as part of a $60000000.00 military aid package. and if further, $200000000.00 are on the table as well. and with the ongoing military build up on russia's borders, the g 7 group of advanced economies has threatened russia with a severe response if it attacks ukraine. moscow though, denies any plans of invasion and interests, its nato that poses a threat to russia by expanding further east, closer to its borders. but the white house believes that only it has the right to draw the line. yes.
oh. of course, the diplomacy is out and red 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 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, 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 state so recklessly moving their military forces an infrastructure to the russian borders. so what is washes red line, us spy pains jetting towards rushes borders. passenger jets with hundreds of civilians on board. diverted because the nato re complain was to close and wouldn't respond to ground control. the actions by the u. s. air force create the threat to civil aviation 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, us warships now enter this luxury and when we can see it through binoculars will to cross has offensive system a better one or multiple missile systems. just
a the fence. it was a bit more to him. look at when they chose military infrastructure is located and just a short distance from other orders. in romania, whole english are planted. massage defense systems have already been deployed and they can easily be converted into offensive missile systems. it targets us. it only takes a matter of minutes to change the software distribution. now, instinct tells me that if 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 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 orbit of the alliance, the de facto sort of nature's assimilation of the military infrastructure of this country. and the desire to turn it into a foothold for confrontation with russia could all cause severe negative consequences and destabilize the military and political situation in europe. but lucky for nato, it's got a gas out of jail free card because in politics, well promises are made to be broken. there is that where is that written down? where is that from was written down. and under the rumor, this friend of mine will enrich good, which it didn't quicker when i stuck murray to do it. in the meantime, the u. s. unfazed by it's terrible track record of predicting russian behavior is covering its bases and drawing up some economic sanctions. you know, just in case and now the ongoing frictions have placed, the recently completed nordstrom to pipeline under thread. it runs from russia to
germany under the baltic sea and is awaiting its official launch. however, the u. s. top diplomat, anthony, blinking, have said it's unlikely gas will ever flow through it, repeating the claim of moscow's aggression against ukraine. daniel shaw, professor at the city university of new york questions whether other countries would be allowed to behave like america does. this is part of the ramping up over economic, military and diplomatic pressure on russia. it's nato in the u. s. that continued to encroach upon russia's borders. the absolute hypocrisy that's on display here with blink in biden's eye 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 his stony a in to ukraine. so ukraine is the latest justification to continue this new cold
war. this new global class struggle was really behind. this is fear in us ruling circles of a sovereign strong or russia. a dark day for journalism is how gillian assange and supporters reacted to the british high court ruling on friday that the wiki leaks founder can be extradited. to the u. s. washington. one, it's appeal against a previous decision blocking assange from being sent to america. the face trial on espionage charges. campaigners slammed the latest move which was handed down on what was the human rights day for the united nations. 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 assault has been targeted for his contributions to journalism. back in october, those a to day, harry, i was the united states trying to appeal. i've a numerous grounds, including the fact that it offered an unprecedented package of assurances,
as i saw, would not be held under the maximum security. the strict is not some security conditions in prison and that he isn't on well is being, he's made out of continue to say that he is indeed a suicide risk. and that all of these assurances are meaningless. and they, because they purchase, they said that the united states can reverse any decision at any point. class is also concerned about the trustworthiness of america guarantees to pointing to one of those reports in the year that the c i a i had talked to kidnap doing this on to kill them speaking outside the high court here this morning. we've heard from stella morris to partner who is 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? 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, as assistive on every level 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
of public opinion. it's absolutely devastating, especially this time of year to another christmas without do you know that is children without their dad stay on to fight to free during the trial so we will prevail eventually many people outside the high court to say, where is the human rights in the case of june, a saw a job is to be listed on the foreground of the royal court of justice, that they call it the royal cause of injustice. i want to be on the right of water in there. just as it was being known, a protest even through eggs this side directly behind me, which just goes to show a sentiment and feeling here on the streets of london. briefly here is how it got
to this point in 2000, 1900 joint songs was forcefully removed by the british police from ecuador to embassy in london. after the country terminated his 7 year asylum there, he had sought refuge after sexual assault allegations in sweden, which were later dropped. the british authorities arrested him on a separate charge of jumping bail. america wants the wiki league founder extradited on claims of conspiring to hack government computers and publishing classified material. meanwhile, astonishes by a fiance claims that he suffered a stroke during a hearing in october wiki leaks, editor and chief christian robinson, talked to us following fridays really was actually believable. and so i run a good decision should be handed on the united nations human rights. the united states had all opportunity in the medicine court to make those so called assurances . it's not, it's simply press the forward after the last in the medical court in general,
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 sentence if he gets one in australia. all of these so called assurance and have been the been the best it by human rights organizations such as amnesty international. and i found that the, those are your months worth of 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 law. this is an absolutely tried to steal any legal process. this is a political case,
and the julian arrest us we said for many, many years is a political persecution. devastating storms have ripped through central and southern parts of the u. s. in what joe biden has described as possibly the worst tornado outbreak in the country's history of the state of kentucky has suffered the worst damage with the governor saying the death toll is currently at 80 people, and he is fearful. it could exceed $100.00. the city of mayfield's more than 100 people were trapped inside the collapse factory building. while emergency workers have managed to rescue about 40 of them. shelters have been set up with the help of the red cross and the governor has declared a state of emergency ah worse, most devastating, most badly tornado event in kentucky. history in
our hometown and it's just everything. everybody's off there. walls were shaking. house collapsing, i guess if you see where the whole house is buckled, the little back side of this house is all total devastation for all town. most for historic buildings are now gone. with this is likely to be one of the largest tornado operates in our history and higher towns were destroyed as some 30 powerful tornadoes, ravaged across thick that us states the worst affected kentucky 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 17th senators, who voted against a bill to provide billions of dollars in relief. well, all republicans among them, kentucky's sen round pull. once again thousands are suffering, but there's no time like the present for political punches. we should do all we can to help our 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 know, rand paul is a heartless hypocrite. the people in kentucky deserve the relief, regardless of their furnished leadership. but the dance don't use this against him
and his party in the future. it is mister, but unity 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 they bid to push a $1.00 trillion dollar climate package through the senate. all that i know is that the intensity of the weather across the board has some impact as a consequence of the warming of the planet and the climate change. and so it seems something as devastating as this can only when the appetite for those looking to score political points. american journalists are being threatened with massive fines if they work for what are perceived to be the wrong publications to
contributors to a site called the strategic culture foundation have received stern warnings from the us treasury. this letter, for example, was sent to daniel lazar, and michael of van, vertical, who are both new york based journalist. it says the s c f is on a list of banned organizations accused of election meddling, and that us citizens who engage in transactions with the foundation are liable to fines of at least $300000.00. daniela's czar shared his experience with us. it was a warning i regarding future articles. so essentially, if i write for sci fi and gauge and any kind of transaction, which i assume means any, an exchange of money, i could be hit 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 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 the threats make up part of the 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 russian line behavior. the u. s. government claims the
strategic culture foundation is in fact, controlled by russia's sovereign foreign intelligence agency, the f v r, and that it also is linked to the russian foreign ministry foundation denies this and calls itself a research platform about duration global affairs. but daniel lazar says a dangerous precedent has already been set. i think that 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 journalists. and that as a supporter of a free speech in a free press, i believe that readers should have access to this kind of stuff. and, and yet the, the u. s. government is trying to close down and therefore trying to stop information, which is usually at variance with official u. s. 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 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. 2 things may be changing slightly and doesn't the order. well. there was a shock in the rushing capital on tuesday when a man opened fire during a dispute over wearing masks, killing 2 employees in a public services office. here is how the deadly incident unfolded. the
the the solution. i knew alexei ross left, we worked together for about 4 months. why was the cloakroom attendant? he was a security guard and he was a kind hard working man, a good man. there were never any problems with him. and he always told me funny stories and anecdotes i found out earlier today that there was ambulances and police that we thought it was a bomb threat with. there have been a fire. we found out that there had been a shooting with dead and wounded. and among the dead, i saw the name of the man i worked with the he pointed the gun at me, but apparently something jumped. he banded against his leg and the shots you the
floor. i walked to when so the girl lined by reception and shouting, help me please. what's wrong with my legs? the lot of which i was at my workplace and heard of far alarm as well as the sound similar to gunshot. then i saw a man running towards the exit of the building. at that moment i made a decision to detain him and i ran off to him. he resisted arrest. i saw that he was carrying a knife and a firearm. when i was detaining him, i made sure he couldn't use these weapons and neutralized him. the new poll shows a noticeable change in the political choices of hispanic voters in the u. s. cause for concern for the democratic party, which has traditionally had overwhelming support from that ethnic group. as our
chief, kill me up and comments growing number of americans who identify themselves as hispanic, are being drawn to the republican party. this long time, democratic party block has been softening according to the polls. latino, more and more becoming swing voters. they are a swing vote that we're going to have to fight for. you see in this poll that there's a group of hispanic men who were without a doubt, enticed by trump and have become more republican, tried to, sorry, why they're all the same. once they get their position money, forget about everybody, especially the immigrants. they ignore some aspects or fulfilling their promises, but in others, they've forgotten about us, such as education or the pandemic. in the recent virginia governor's race, more than half of latino voters gave their vote to glen younger, the republican compare that to just a year previously. when over 60 percent of latinos voted for by it appears the issue at hand is joe by wow. why do we make money?
why, why? why are we adding extra words? i mean, i'm still part of it. cool. but i'm still latino. right? so consider latino, latino, it's a sharp wake up call for the democratic party who presumptuous. lee assumed that latinos would vote for them as usual, and the democrats are now having to earn their votes. now, the problem is with all these negatives around the democrats and their performance, some think these efforts may come to little to late caleb martin r t new york. well that does it for me. in fact, i does it for the weekly, but don't worry. my colleague collin brown will be here in about 32 minutes with another full fresh look news. we're glad to have with us. we have a choice. this is our international lou.
in awe. dom asher, it's and so you're watching going underground. 5 years to the day since the un security council adopted resolution to 3 to 3, reaffirming a strong commitment to the sovereignty independence, territorial integrity and national unity of africa's richest baganda country. libya coming up with a show 10 years after nature destruction and declarations of victory in libya after the murder of lead in warmer gadhafi. could his son safe be elected president? this christmas we talk to ma, get out. he's information minister about securing judicial support in the oil rich country for his candidacy and his millions face humanitarian catastrophe, and displacement in the form of french west african colony of booking of faso days
