7:01 am
the diminished would have been something more humane. reading, talking about 23 people. so i have to get to set our chipmunks with us inflation rates setting new records. americans are being advised by the media to splash their savings before they deem value any further. the tip that's, i'm good to be all ready. hot up. pretty much everything universally cost smart. it's harder to get like even little products, like napkins and cups and all those stuff. so it's kind of bad. ah, broadcasting, you're new to 100 countries worldwide. this is auntie international, top stories right now. a political decision, not back with any solid evidence. well, that is how russia's ambassador to germany has dismissed the conviction of a russian national for the alleged state sponsored killing of
7:02 am
a chechen man in berlin. back in 2019, the court ruled the murder was carried out on moscow's orders. let's learn more right now, of course in life to europe and berlin. archie is peter, all of a peter. good to see you. this case has certainly caught an awful lot of tension between germany and russia. can you take us through the details? right? a lot to unpack here what we've seen on wednesday is a course here in berlin sentencing a russian national to life. he was named by the court vadim classical, also going under the alias of volume. so cool of he's been sentenced to life for the murder of old villa, han hunger. she really who was going down in a berlin park back in august of 2019. now the court in passing the sentence has said that they understand that hun gosh. really with kills at the behest of the russian government. now, so far, we've reached out to the,
7:03 am
the federal and telecom services in russia, the f s b, and they've not had any comment to come forward to us with what we have heard is repeated denies from moscow of any involvement in this particular killing. what they have pointed out is that hunger sh, fairly who had asylum status here in germany who was a on a georgia passport, who was ethnically from the chechen region in russia. that he had been heavily involved in terror attacks in russia's north caucuses. and it also being part of the planning for the suicide bombing attacks on the moscow metro. what we've heard though, from the ambassador's here in, in berlin, from the russian on bassett, that is, in response to this ruling, is that there fall from happy whatsoever. in fact, they describe the verdict is biased, saying it aggravates already difficult relations between berlin and moscow. they say that they base the,
7:04 am
the conviction upon investigations by belling carts and insider that were biased against the russian side. also that witnesses were processed by ukrainian special services saying that stories changed multiple times. what they have also said will be on bus. it is also said is that this move will not go on answered. and they also suggest that they being timed in order to further cause problems in the relationship between germany and russia. the new german chancellor, all of sholtes, is still yet to have a phone call or a meeting with the russian president vladimir putin. there are numerous issues now for, for quote to cause problems between the 2. adding into this case, you're also looking at the situation in ukraine as well as the future of the north stream to gas pipeline. as well, though, back in 2019 this case caused huge diplomatic problems. we saw a number of russian diplomats expelled from the embassy here in berlin. they were told that was after germany had gone to russia to try and get help. with this case,
7:05 am
the german side saying they hadn't received the help they wanted. it looks like this is set to cause more diplomatic problems following the sentencing to life imprisonment of a russian national for the killing over at george and mine in a park here in central berlin. all right, peter, thank you. well, i facebook users may have to reassess the information they've been getting from the site. it's after its parent company, meta admitted in court, so called fact checks, a based merely on opinion. with the revelation came during a legal battle initiated by a journalist after his posts were flagged as misleading. picking up the story ortiz saskia. taylor turns out the famous fact checkers who are busy labeling things false partly false, misleading. i've actually been a bit loose with well, the facts. facebook yet again found itself in court. this time up against
7:06 am
a journalist. he didn't like the day slapped at partly full sticker on one of his post, so he sued for defamation. i'm because facebook where he spent millions of dollars on legal fees over the years. it got creative this time and claimed that front chequers don't decide what's false, so not based on fact. what a ridiculous idea, but on their opinion, hence the title fact checker. and because opinion in america is sacred, you can't sue it. it's a very, very nifty loophole. but just to really escape any liability whatsoever. facebook doubled down on how it gives it fact checkers a very long leash. so meta identifies potential misinformation, for fact checkers to review and great. it leaves the ultimate determination whether information is full so misleading to the fact checkers. and though meta has designed its platforms so that fact checker ratings appear next to content that the
7:07 am
fact checkers have reviewed and rated. it does not contribute to the substance of those ratings. now, you won't find any of these details in the giant fact checking section on facebook talk. com. instead, you'll learn about how they interview sources and consult data and look for facts, you know, to really drive home the point about how it's all based on opinion. i think some of it's 3000000000 uses wild. why want? sorry, pleased. after all, many of them had probably used these facts one arguing with our friends. and now it's turned out they would just quoting some random person's opinion. i've been embarrassing railing, so that campaigning for facebook not to be let off the hook. court filing, facebook admits its fact checkers. don't check facts. is facebook admitted here that it's fact checks are not really fact checks at all, but merely opinion assertions also by facebook claim in its labels constitute opinions than doesn't that make it a publisher. facebook, your opinion piece is not exempt from being fact checked,
7:08 am
even when they are clearly labeled as op eds or editorials. also, facebook, our fax labels cannot be false or defamatory because they consist sheet protected opinion, even though we present them. as fact, my question though is, what does facebook need these opinionated fact checkers for anyway, after all, over the years, it's proved, it's committed to free speech. it loves giving people a voice, especially don't come. it's dedicated to openness, transparency, and of course, democracy. i mean, it says all the time your democracy can't tolerate the speech of people. i'm not sure what kind of democracy it is. i do believe in giving people more access to information and more access to connect with one another and not reserving those as tools for some small number of ally people. i don't feel comfortable at all saying they don't get to have a voice because i don't agree with. they said our ability to know what is misinformation is itself in question. and i think reasonably so fact checkers. facebook favorite friends protecting it from defamation, setting it free for accountability, someone to hide behind and times of trouble,
7:09 am
but most importantly, always ready to get their opinion. facebook has found themselves back against the wall and if they try to cling to the idea that they are fact checking in court, they're going to lose. and not only is it gonna cost them big time, but it's gonna open the door to a flood of similar lawsuit in the near future. and it could be more than they can handle. i think they're hoping that by admitting that fact, jack just means opinion jack, when facebook puts a label on there, hoping to get out of this lawsuit without harm. and then just sink the story into the daily fountain of news events and hope people forget about it. in due time and in the, in the future, you'll see changes in their labels. they'll stop using the word fact and they'll come up with some other way to express it where they still exercise their dictatorship right to control speech on their platform. but it won't be a false presentation like the word fact jack is false. now you can learn much more
7:10 am
about the story on the facebook revelations that seem to be happening nearly every week. now, the court case goes on, you can read about it more, the odd t dot com or to the united states. now wait, journalists are pushing back against government surveillance offer was revealed at the homeland security department secretly obtained information on report has a congressional members and possibly even his own staff. by running a database, checks normally reserved for get this suspected terrorists with the associated press. who's reporter was among those targeted is the mining answers where deeply concerned about these apparent abusive power. this appears to be an example of journalists being targeted for simply doing their jobs, which is a violation of the 1st amendment. at the center of the uproar is a special unit inside the customs and border protection. it's called a the counter network division. formerly gathered date her on 20 john lists using
7:11 am
sensitive databases of the revelation though has prompted condemnation not just from media workers, but lawmakers as well if true, this abuse of government surveillance powers to target journalists, elected officials, and their stuff is deeply disturbing. if multiple government agencies were aware of this conduct and took no action to stop it, there needs to be serious consequences for every official involved and department of homeland security and the justice department must explain what actions they're taking to prevent this unacceptable conduct in the future the department of homeland security insists its quote, deeply committed to ensuring the protection of 1st amendment rights, namely freedom of speech. and the press. journalist on commerce had a chadwick, mall told us that americans have long been spot on by their government. deeply shocking, chilling, actually to put it more accurately. but this is also nothing really new. and this is something that. a transcends administration that transcends democrat and
7:12 am
republican administration, and there's absolutely no reason why someone from a government should be looking at your bank records, who you're emailing your travel records, it goes bottom mentally against everything that this country stands for that, that constitution. so if it doesn't matter if you have something to hide or not, it's wrong and it should be a legal, probably legal, and it's not a representative of the values of this country and the people in journalists are being deceived. and this is all being funded by our government. it seems like congress should be able to do something about it. they wrote, you put up quotes and congress people who are saying are deeply concerned. i don't think anything will happen. might be, i don't know if it's too far to say that maybe because these agencies have every bit of dirt. they cannot members of congress, maybe congress people are frightened to come out against these agencies and adult services in any kind of meaningful way that's possible. but congress could absolutely do something, but they haven't, and i don't think they will. a clash of cultures has seen denmark's ex immigration
7:13 am
minister jailed, and she was sentenced to 2 months for illegally separating refugee couples. back in 2016. under danish law couples can only get married from the age of 18 during the migrant crisis. girls as young as 50 and who had legally married in their own countries, arrived in denmark. then the minister ordered the young wives to be separated from their husbands. a danish court ruled that was unlawful as the decision was made without consideration of individual circumstances or industry bugs as though she was only trying to protect children. and she has no regrets. yes, minette. yeah, cuz i see it. yeah. i can only see that i am very, very surprised by despair. dick and it is, as it were, the only scenario i had not prepared for before. well, because i thought it was completely unrealistic. but here we are, and i take my punishment and they do it without bending my neck. oh no. oh boy, in argona said, oh no, there is nothing over that i so i mean simply one has
7:14 am
a moral and compassionate obligation to protect the girls. and that was what i did . so we invited some guests. so to debate whether the danish ex minister's decision was justified or not to me, nobody is above the law is as simple as that. and she has been only to intense for 2 months, not for 2 years. and we also know that she will not go to the present, she maybe get a trap on, on her leg. you know, and that is, that would be that i think the lessons learned from this is obviously there is a lack of proportionality on behalf of the davis minister. but also, i think on behalf of your tool, because we're talking about 23 people. so i don't think our sentence, most of the girls who are in this 24 cases give are 1617. so they were not child right. like 5 years, 6 years, 7 years and more girls
7:15 am
a were already married with these campers and to separate those people. i think that if she wanted to do something human, she should have gone to the court and some come pretend expert who had given her some good advice. but she didn't do that. i think they didn't take it out. they, they sent us. there is a good time to check that i just read why she might go slightly wrong in my food and how i got members also having a common time since syria which is contributing since i've been coming to denmark, didn't know that, that they didn't know what became as asylum seeker of didn't know the loss of the land. they were running for their lives in the country. they were seeking asylum somewhere. and it came to the denmark. and if she was so worried about
7:16 am
them, then she the minister would have been something more humane. talk to them and explain to them. well, i think if you go by what she said, she said she is defending daily. these are protecting child bodies. is that the material one day or one is just a matter of subjecting those more people who are seeking this hello and, and the government and the minister is subjecting them to cancel unbearable pressure. and that is, i think personally for me is absolutely terrible. so the main reason people come from sherry, i'd say to places like the denmark and the u. j is the all 4 economic sanctions which hit literally on my so you never passing me today. repeat your name exceptions and then maybe it's a little bit more bearable. consumer price is
7:17 am
a hitting new highs in america with inflation reaching a near for decade peak earlier this year. and recent media advice for americans is to spend the savings before they devalue, but it hasn't gone down to well, especially among those who are already strapped for cash. everything costs more, the grocery stores of pretty much everything. universally costs more. everything's got up gas. ah, food, everything. so it's not good. i'm a small, you know, black home business owner and all the prices are my products. i have a coffee shop in brooklyn, in prime grand coffee, and like all the, all the beans are more expensive and it's harder to get like even little products like napkins and cups and all those stuff. so it's kind of bad, you know, with prices on almost all goods and services rising. some media have come up with some advice that isn't going down too well. they say copy inflation ravaged argentina and simply blow all your money before it evaporates in high inflation
7:18 am
economy. money that sits in the bank is losing value each day. those $100.00 and deposit by a little bit less. as a result, many argentines spend their paychecks as soon as they receive them, cards in a way, weeks worth of groceries in a single shopping trip. even if some of it excess me chicken fish, will sit in the freezer for months. so won't work offers asked to spend more. that's as consumer inflation costs of jump 6.8 percent the highest and 41 years. it's not the only example in a recent washington post article, a leading columnist, aptly suggested. not expecting very much, rather than leaving constantly on the verge of throwing the fit and risk and taken it out on the well service, struggling shop horn. as a late arriving, delivered a pupil, we do ourselves a favor by consciously lowering expectations. a recent article from locks recommended reducing holiday requests in order to not feel the crunch of by nomics
7:19 am
. the mission to my last with more intention is achievable for everyone. especially aflac shop is it's incumbent and americans, the wealthiest people in the well to come back, come and be critical of their consumption. many c biden's policies as being directly to blame job. i didn't seems bored of explaining how he sees it. not too interested in defending his actions. if we were all going out and have lunch together and i said, let's ask whoever, whoever's in the next table, no matter how. we're what restaurant really haven't had them explained the supply chain to us. we can understand what we're talking about now at this point. 60 percent of americans blame joe biden for the crisis. but mainstream media seems to disagree and tell them they should blame themselves, not the people leading the country. there's nothing that upsets american voters more than having to pay for ever higher prices that are going up dramatically. vitamins patricia can try to blame the energy companies in private. this is all
7:20 am
they want, but it's all happening under his watch. and i expect that the democrats are going to pay a very serious price for this and the next election, if we make it that long, we don't know what inflation is going to be at. by that time, i'm very much afraid that, that we're going to be facing a reckoning of without any kind of historical precedent and anybody's lifetimes. vladimir putin and his chinese count about judging ping have stage. they're highly publicized video conference together. i'm also going beijing, have publicly committed to strengthening that ties of it increasingly strained relations between the east and west. short time ago, i got all the details without ease eco's gentle. it comes amid as both nations. they face very similar geopolitical challenges, and most of them are coming from half the world away from the united states,
7:21 am
both nations, both russia and china, are no stranger to nato, bolstering its military presence, either close to the national borders, or when it comes to china. in the asia pacific, hence in an area, the china that beijing views as its own backyard. here, both vladimir putin and cheating ping, they criticize the so called all cause deal saying that while essentially it undermines the well the global nuclear stability. and that it is essentially a threat to global security have listen concern was expressed by the activity of the americans in reconfiguring the current situation in the asia pacific region. and in this regard, both from our side and from the chinese side and negative assessment was expressed about the creation of new alliances such as the indo pacific quad and the american anglo australian union orcus basically this orkin deal is the united states and the u. k. uniting and helping a stranger create its own basically expand its nuclear capabilities,
7:22 am
expand the nuclear capabilities of its fleet. so this is an attempt by washington and london to make us trailer, into more into more of an atomic superpower. in fact, on the side note at this deal has already caused quite a scandal between the allies, because initially, france was about to do more or less the same, but washington and london, well, they muscled out their partner, their ally, paris, out of a very lucrative contract but going back to the meeting between our, we're going back to the spiritual conference between vladimir putin and changing ping. they also expressed a desire to move further away from exchanges in dollars when it comes to bilateral trade and will increase the volume of deals or in our local currencies. in fact, staying was there, the subject of economy. vladimir putin has revealed that more than a 150000000 of doses of russia's vaccines against covered sputnik v and
7:23 am
sputnik lighter will be produced in china as contracts with 6 chinese firms have been signed. and in general, during 2021. the, the, the amount, the volume of bilateral trade has increased by 31 percent, which is basically it has reached to levels higher than a before the pandemic. so there you have it, it seems both leaders, they well the see i to i and this meeting, this virtual summit seems to have lamented the alliance between moscow and beijing . harry potter ortho j. k. rowling has infuriated the transgender community by criticizing police in scotland for allowing rape suspects to identify as women, even if they haven't legally, or even physically change their gender. rollins channel george or wells 1984 on twitter to make her point. where is peace, freedom of slavery, ignorance is trans. the meanest individual, her aim to you is a woman. will
7:24 am
a feminist activists or share rawlings concerns saying the new approach will distort crime statistics and thereby render them useless. but the author has faced a heavy backlash for her views. vast majority of sexual souls are committed by men who don't identify as anything other than men. perhaps you might consider using your public profile to come by this. instead, you created an entire universe filled with wonderful characters, fantastical beasts magic and wander, but can't fathom. the trans people exist. you've gone downhill from the inspiring woman who wrote harry potter from her car. why does it sound like you're more upset about trans people? then re bis, feels like your priorities around here, baby. well, it's not the 1st time i rawlings being rounded on by trans activists. back in 2020, she was accused of transfer via after ridiculing an article that used to phrase
7:25 am
people who menstruate instead of women. certainly prompted protests outside her house, or the writer insists she has nothing against transgender people and the director of the project keep prisons, single sex, believes it's a dangerous practice to substitute biological sex with gender identity. i think this is another example of institutional catcher of our public and private institutions by the transgender, low bay. the intention was to then be able to roll out to other sexes. so i think the capturing of the criminal justice system, whether it's crime statistics or it's the prison service, has been very key tactical made within the crime statistics. we know that sex is an incredibly important variable for analyzing the causes of crime and the response to crime. so if you substituting gender identity to biological sex,
7:26 am
you're really messing up the data right at the beginning. and you can never formulate an appropriate response. some men are just exploiting a loophole here to get themselves into female presence. and that is great danger to the family mates. i mean, how do you feel about that side of the argument? once you start pretending biological sex doesn't matter, then you start opening up spaces, team, males to men into boys, on the basis of what they believe about themselves on the basis of gender identity . and that puts women at risk as j. k. rowling says, this is fundamentally, it's about protecting the rights of women and girls is about protecting the safety of women and girls. newly appointed a german, a foreign minister has called on the e. u to slap sanctions on bosnian serb leader miller rod. though dick pushing for so be a dominated areas of bosnia to separate the sanctions proposal has gained the support of our most members of the block. though the decision that requires
7:27 am
a consensus is currently being blocked by hungary and slovenia. the bosnian serb leader wants to pull the autonomous soper public out of boston. those key is the 2 sions, including the army security tax and legal systems. the initiative though violates the dayton peace agreement reached the end of the bosnian or in 1995. despite that, the bosnian. so parliament has already adopted a package of measures that would help the soap republics withdrawal from the state . also be in the canadian filmmaker boris mother, gorski has been looking deeper into the story for us. the west has called the move, has very dangers for the dayton agreement itself. saying that this could be stabilized, bought the herd, sabina, and the region that it could threaten republican ships because economy and it could essentially threaten. but here's the meanest path towards the, you know, republic. a strip sca is an entity of bosnia herzegovina which was established in
7:28 am
the 1995 dayton accords which ended the bloody war in bosnia herzegovina between serbs, croats and body extra body muslims, as they used to be called for fully concepts. because leadership miller, dominique has said that, in fact the dayton agreement has been changed by the west many times since 1995. now it is very hypocritical of the west saying that they are against the succession of republic as their school is just a couple of 100 kilometers away in kosovo. they are the ones that are pushed for the succession of co civil from serbia, and they recognized coastal was dependence. i think it's about time for the west to start respecting its own principles and what they say. and what they do serves are not guests. in bosnia herzegovina, they've been living there for centuries and centuries, and they deserve to have the rights that any other nation should have. the ino practica annual science and business form kicks off for the 8th time and

7:30 am
and they're able to integrate quickly into the economy quickly and just they production systems and like large businesses login whether we live in a fast paced world. and the pandemic has accelerated the processes of digitalization, while marketing and informational messages are becoming more personalized. this creates new requirements for content, which should become more and more diverse environment. they're more details about that story online right now at auto dot com with that wraps up the news costs for this. our thanks for joining us. we are back soon with more and london's love polls, particularly when pulse further a certain political agenda. but polling has a checkered history as of late.
