still there, the major cybersecurity challenge is the sovereignty of laws that cyberspace has no borders, no sovereignty. we ended up with, for example, the national health service in the u. k. the n, a chess was completely wiped out from a ransomware attack. if you were coming in to a clinic, because you had a test or you had an operation, they can't find your records. they had to go back to pen and paper. we those minute, you must give us the guarantees it is up to you. and you must do it immediately. president, posing nash is out at nato's eastward expansions. he answers questions during his annual news bring thing. precious president also responds. so question to about the energy crisis, noting europe's pang record price is after ditching affordable gas contracts. when you, when we know what no, said the european commission,
we must use the market terms. the market will regulated. well, here's how it's regulated. we have $2000.00 for 1000 cubic meters. you're welcome. and also to come, the u. s. s. k offs awaits the world without its leadership, despite many countries still reaping the consequences of american involvement. and we also report for more tony feo pier, where trains of faith ease and bias in west mainstream media is being blank for exacerbating the turmoil. ah, hello, good evening, welcome. just gone 5 o'clock, harry, moscow. you with arte international. now the annual end of the year media briefing by the russian president vladimir putin has just wrapped up. it lasted for more than 4 hours to any. plenty, a covered plenty of topics. we go through the key ones without his murdered gas. if he joins his sir. now i believe. yes, there he is. thank you her. good evening,
maria. just run through them. the key points that were raised during this 4 hour marathon. well, as you said, a huge array of issues were discussed. this is an opportunity for, for journalists from all manner of outlets small, large international for, to gather together and to ask poking ah, the most pressing questions that they have. but that includes a journalist from small provincial outlets in russia. people forget have vos, russia is 11 times zone that spans, and there's a lot of questions the journalists want to ask. so we heard questions ranging from, from issues with mortgages and provincial towns to big hitting questions. lou did questions even from foreign journalists, asking vladimir putin if he can guarantee that russia won't attack you grade. or that russia wound to act in an aggressive way towards the west. so will you
guarantee unconditionally that you will not invade ukraine or any other southern country or should easter bulldozers erections will not depend on negotiations. they will depend on unconditional compliance with russia. security in the sense we have made it clear that any further movement to the east is unacceptable. we are not threatening anyone. we didn't come to the u. s. a. you case borders no, they came to ours yet not an inch to the east. that was a nato guarantee in 1990. so what became of that, they fooled us. we've seen 5 waves of nato expansion and you keep demanding some guarantees from us. you must give us the guarantees it is up to you and you must do it immediately. right now, instead of talking about it for decades and is about to get blood where putin's point was, that after all these years of promises from the west, from native, from the united states, that russia security was, herb would be respected. and then a reality showing that it wasn't even taken into account. now, there is a red light, no more expansion towards russia,
no more movements eastward vladimir putin yesterday, of course, spoke about in depth about the dangers facing russia. if merican massage stationed in ukraine with a flight time from ukraine to moscow, about 5 minutes for hypersonic missiles, which for russia is simply unacceptable. he also spoke about the other thing that marcia has been charged with or suspected of manipulating. and that is the guy gas market in, in europe. he says, well, what we're hearing from various outlets is baseless and senseless. germany for example, is buying gas at $57.00 times below market price. we're and then they're using that gas to perhaps celadon, to poland, which is paying an entirely different price because it insisted on trading with russia at market prices. now, the gases or the above $2000.00. well, it is ruinous, ruinous for both
e. you citizens who have seen their household built for electricity go up for 500 percent ruinous also for businesses which they have, which are seeing an even larger rise level to remain with by them. they are lying to us the confusing everyone gets promised. shipping the entire volume requested by his counselor agents in accordance with the existing contracts, are there even increasing the volume by around 20 percent? they're increasing shipments to europe. i believe gas from is the only company that does that us suppliers and not supplying the european markets enough. europeans used to think they had premium markets, but they were left behind. we're talking about liquefied natural gas. americans are transferring the shipments to the premium marcus to latin america, brazil, europe, china, south korea, japan and the prices kicking. we were telling them we was not destroy long term contracts, but no, said the european commission, we must use the market terms. the market will regulated well, here's how it's regulated and we have $2000.00 for 1000 cubic meters. you're
welcome, nebula. the other thing that popped up here buzz as you of recent scandals and russian involving jails. prisons and the torture of suspected inmates by prison authorities at these were both, both incidents were, was shocking because there was graphic footage of it happening. there are more cases where we haven't seen footage. this is something that has been a sore point among russians for, for many years. and let me put him with us. what is being done about this? he said that the, the russian government is taking action. there are a number of criminal proceedings against her former prison institution that staff members, as well as the fact that this isn't a problem only in russia. this is a problem in even in developed countries, had it is very difficult to put an end to it then absolutely. in this case, it is necessary 1st of all,
to rely on the prob data. 17 criminal cases have been initiated and under investigation you have named only one or 2 people. but as far as i know, over a dozen were dismissed and criminal cases were opened against them. yes, there is a problem when he to work on it and rely on a conscientious, fully phrased investigation of those crimes. and these crimes were clearly committed. we need to bring it to an end, so everyone understands that punishment for these offences is inevitable. i was a lucky enough also to be able to ask vladimir putin question. my question was about this cancelled cont, cancel culture phenomenon as well as woocommerce that have so pervaded western politics. sometimes in very extreme forms, for example, we ah, for example, the incident with, with jake a rolling and how the act is that she made famous with her harry potter movies have turned against and asked vladimir putin, what he thinks about is social justice culture. and whether it is coming to russia,
as so, been this national chester, the peculiarity and strength of our millennial society lies in the fact that russia has evolved as a multinational and multi confessional states. and we have learned to respect each other. and this means to respect the basis of our traditional spiritual culture or the peoples of the russian federation have a certain internal moral protection against such retrogression. and well, this must be fought not by direct instructions and shouts, but by the support of our traditional values. there was also much, much more obviously in those 4 hours as vladimir per vladimir putin cloud to $55.00 questions. feel that by all the journalists gathered here was also covered, brought up about the need for collective immunity. but vladimir putin are also warned that more variance may emerge and we must be on, on our guard and must vaccinate, though he shied away from announcing or supporting mandatory vaccination as we have
seen in europe. again, not the biggest crowded attendance today because of pandemic safety measures there's social distancing in effect here. there's a mass mandatory masts, of course, there was also humidifiers and all sorts of antiseptics prayers, inaction today, but there were much bigger crowds and previous years. nevertheless, this, the session lasted for fear for 4 hours, 3 hours, 56 minutes. i believe though, people defer on how long. exactly. and this is this year's vladimir prudence press conference. okay, well thanks. the rap of them were at that was our teaser murdered gasdio. his morale mentioned t present. payton answered a total of 55 questions during his annual press conference there, and one of them was on the recognition of afghanistan's new authorities, were his 86 on a boy cow. and what the russian president had to say on that. it's a question now for the west, but for the united nations, because there are
a couple of resolutions not recognized taliban as, as a terrorist organization or as an organization involved in terrorist activities. and for that to be removed, they have to be an international consensus and actually looks like this consensus and maybe within the reach because for all the disagreements, let sound the ukrainian issue, the russian authority has happened quite complimentary. the reason why the russians have sort of played along with this new situation is that they believe that they've regional consensus will be much helpful in if not bringing peace to. i've got to stand on at least making sure that the tire ribbon doesn't spread beyond its borders, and bigger goal would be to how the eurasia sort of raise the center of erasure from the poles that you have china and want to pull. you have rush on the other
pull, you have india there as well. so there is a hold. the if the local players regional players can agree of not supporting various kweisi actors there. then perhaps with due time the dissertation can come down and develop in accordance with the local customs, traditions and social conditions rather than trying to build, there is something that could not be supported from, from the grassroots. he also turned the question about anti russian sentiment. i'm assuming that sort of from western media, let's just listen 20 said about that. i don't recall of what's going on is the creation of an anti rush here on the territory with a constant pumping in of modern weapons and the brainwashing of the population. how can you imagine rush of the constantly live with this, with an eye on what new weapon systems are being delivered? and then under the cover of weapon systems. radicals being pushed to resolve the
issue in dumbbell, in the military way. because clearly sees the conflict in the ukraine as a consequence of the sustained take its long attempt to contain russia. he put it, he strongly feels that there is a strong tendency in the west to try to mass up with rushes development or china's development. and he was once again calling for putting it aside and allowing each country to develop in accordance with its own history culture, its own value system, its own goals and its own abilities on a boy talking to me a bit early, what we spoke to geo political and this rena rufus, he does say that the west needs to take russia's offer of dialogue seriously. for russia, this is a really crucial issue. and the west should understand that point president putin is making when it says that the further east, what expansion of nato is a red line for russia. because he has, of course,
the 1st duty to protect the geopolitical interests of his country, which are also legitimate security interest. what we have seen in the last years was a very dangerous escalation of relationships. i mean, the war of faction between east and west have harmed a lot of the economy above all in parts of europe. and therefore, we should immediately return to dialogue and to find a reliable solution because the 5 past east, what expansion, what use of nato, of course, have undermined any trust that russia may have had into nato promises. this is an offer that the west should take serious the u. s. a. you have made the 1st steps also in entering into dialogue. and the european union would be
to what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race move is on often very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical time time to sit down and talk ah, welcome back. now the future of the world without american leadership might be grim and chaotic. according to the secretary of state, anthony blinking. but his art is nicky. iron has been finding out there are quite a few countries wriggling in the aftermath of washington's help. have you ever wondered what the world might be like without the united states as a chaos?
that's what it thinks when we're not engaged. when we don't lead them one or 2 things happens. either some other country tries to take our place, but probably not in a way that advances our interests and values or no windows. and then you get chaos . yes, the us have used this magic touch to bring peace and harmony to many estate, far and wide. one fine example operation enduring freedom, better known to you and i as the us invasion of afghanistan. following the september, the 11th attack, the u. s. entered the country with a mission to hunt down the summer, been logged in and punished the taliban government of the law with most of the country since 996, the promise was one of retribution, the goodies defeating the bodies. we must rid the world of terrors, or children and grandchildren can grow up in freedom. we are not nation building again. we are killing terrors.
ah . they call it collateral damage to you and i. that's the innocent people in the wrong place at the wrong time. when 10 civilians, including 7 children, were killed in an air strike, the military initially defended it. only a month later did they acknowledge it with a tragic mistake, and yet none of the military personnel involved will face any kind of punishment. then consider the hundreds of other similar cases exposed by wikileaks. in reality, the kind of peace, the u. s. has brought to the country,
has left its people so terrified they've run for their lives. in a 6000000 afghans have either been displaced internally or have fled the country altogether, fueling a refugee crisis that continues to reverberate across europe. by the time it withdrew, it has become america's longest war, and yet in its wake, it left an alarming new threat with wash money. now, with the gold in on then there's iraq, as america ended his time in afghanistan, it's next step was to announce the end of active combat for its troops in iraq. though the picture change too much, some $2500.00 service members will remain on the ground even in the coming year. it
was 2003. when the us approach the you went to make the case for invading iraq. so i think saddam hussein stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction, and we will remember how that ended and yet moving a 1000000 raw case on estimated to have lost their lives as a result, along with thousands of american troops and the outcome, widespread sectarian violence and the rise of islamic state. and then there's syria, after humming and hiring the us, entered syria in 2014 shifting from working quietly behind the scenes to support rebels to overt displays of us force. i have resisted calls for military action because we cannot resolve someone else's civil war through force, particularly after a decade of war in iraq and afghanistan. the images from this massacre are sickening, a crime against humanity in a violation of the laws of war. big promises were made like defeating ices. by like 2014, the $500000000.00 spent training what was supposed to be $5000.00 on
t isis syrian rebels had managed to successfully train about 5. so once again, why that is goodwill and both sides and the really good chance for success, the u. s. has secured the oil among the many us military for raise the promise always the same one of stability, peace and freedom. but with the growing list of foreign interventions turn sour perhaps if time the u. s. consider a career change from the global policeman. tony blinking has a very difficult job and that is to try and put a good face on a, on bad policy on, on, on an administration that you know, promised the moon but can't even launch. we haven't had a foreign policy success in decades or invasion of rock in 2003, of course, predicated on over a decade of, you know,
sanctions base containment of saddam hussein. that changed the entire middle east, which in turn gains the entire world. not for the better either. so, you know, the state has a problem. we are in a position where we have the, the power, the, the accumulation of power to, to make this stand and continue to make the stand. and right now, there's not too many nations that can stand up and prevent it from doing it. it doesn't make it right. we've seen the consequences of this. but for the moment, the united states, you know, is a, is a superpower, laxom moral compass, p and i, where authorities that are demanding that west and mainstream media stop spreading, fake news. they claim there is unbalanced coverage of the civil war there that it's biased towards the rebels fighting the government. people have taken to the streets around the world to support electives in the open government rallies have also been held. cnn,
los angeles bureau with people demanding the u. s. and it's western allies stop interfering in war torn country for a slayer reports now from ethiopian capital. the government and people of all range over the wasted media coverage of what is happening in the morning rebels belonging to the people's liberation army. a t p o, a freedom boiled in a bit hope war trying to over the democratically elected government, instead of remaining neutral mainstream western media has chosen to take the majority of the through any of the broad, strongly feel that cnn has covered the conflict over the past year in a manner that is highly biased and detached from context, the new time in the piece. falsely claiming that it was the government, a prime minister at the cnn hasn't said a much better 8 news anchor with the largest
e p. o pin television channel has monitored and reported on the false reports, the channel continues to spew out. for example, 20 p, a live mart used to abby sub, you know, they, they are at this 60 kilometer away from ibis. cnn reported that i'd be sob about is under siege by t p. a live this completely tech neos, and that the used tech picture. another feature pin i lies is transferring we pin to to gray region, but impractical. the chip in i had lies is not doing that teams factually, but c n n transmitted in order to attack the cio pin economy. how does he have a published a video cap on facebook with the heading thousands of to grands of western in ethiopia. it shows a video of vigilantes and states that they are looking for to grands. but what it
doesn't mention is that these such an teeth were heating a quote from the government to go out and protect their own neighborhoods against to grands who are coming in, looting and killing people. on november 26th, the french state owned international media office, france 24 reported that some tpl fighters had reached deborah. he met some 50 kilometers from addis ababa. it was simply untrue, as picked up by fact finding organization in the capital city. yeah. once to say le falsity, but it's, it's, it's becoming that the really fucked how to becoming boarding experts agree the mainstream. chris is talking with one voice suggesting a coordinated effort behind the scenes and not only the media that n just the right groups. like amnesty humorous which they also collect these
reports in the sample symbol reports and then congressmen data opinion and then they use it to impose sanctions. you can government if it's clear that when the media is wilfully and deliberately trying to misinformed the audiences, it's unfortunate because during the war time, if credible reporting is urgent, our team and i just at the best well the, you and him, the un high commissioner for human rights to say that both the government and the rebels have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity during the crisis of more on the mainstream media impact in ethiopia. and who might be profiting from it did go to a website at r t dot com, plenty of other stores to read that who's cnn is also in the spotlight in the united states. after
a former long time produced a disgrace. star, chris cuomo pleaded not guilty to child sex trafficking charges. court documents reported by fox news alleged that john griffin tried to pay off witnesses and offered a woman $30000.00 in january. his claim, he also sent $4000.00 to a family member of a 9 year old. he is accused of assaulting. griffin was indicted this month and allegations of attempting to do minors for sexual activities and co skills. as soon as 7 years old to go to his home, he faces a maximum life sentence in prison if convicted cnn says the charges against john griffin are deeply disturbing. now, this isn't the 1st scandal it c n n. recently this month, the network 5 chris cuomo for late misconduct after he helped his brother, andrew vend new york new york governor to fight off the sexual harassment case. seeing and host on lemon was recently accused of sexually assaulting a bought end to and then last is c n. n. legal analyst jeffrey toobin was allegedly
cold performing sex acts during a work related video. cool. not to contribute to lauren chin suspects the scandals will didn't see an end ratings. the charges that john griffin is facing, they are not capricious. they are not merely based on a. he said, she said, situation. there are evidence of payments at text messages that duly people to believe authority, specifically that he has been at paying underage girls of for sexual favors, as well as trying to involve their mothers to varying degrees. he is engaged in grooming, and some would argue as well sex trafficking, many mainstream media outlets not just seen and themselves have i think, been a little bit hesitant to talk about this issue. even though we can only imagine what the reaction would have been if this had been someone, for example, on the fox news team or the trump team that had been discovered doing the exact same things overall as cnn's credibility has been shipped away, especially over the trump administrations years,
a lot of people just no longer believe that they are a fair and unbiased source of news. and it's just not a good look for a network that is already struggling to keep up a positive public appearance. and sadly, the only time cnn has been, i think, really disgust widely lately has not been for their amazing journalism or content. it has been because of these, these negative new stories involving their personnel. if the feds are alleging that not only did john griffin engage in these terrible behaviors, but he also then try to pay off a witness to remain silent. i don't think we have much reason to take john griffin at his word. and i think the fact that he has engaged in these things shows that as a person, there is not much he is not willing to do when it comes to preserving his own freedom. watching out international, just going over just coming up to $530.00 in moscow. always good to have you company. we're back again at the top of the oh.
and so it begins 2 weeks of our christmas and new year's, the specials, in which we look back in the year. that was and parents in the future with some of our roster of amazing guests, all heterodox thinkers, that wouldn't be caught dead on breakdown finance, corporate media, 1st up, james howard con certain. oh, is your media reflection of reality? in the world transformed? what will make you feel safer? high selection, whole community. are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true? walk this way. in the world corrupted,
you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. technology is a very big industry and there's lot of opportunities for the hackers movie that it's not him, but he didn't bring the law in that country. you're dealing with why rest him that the major cybersecurity challenge is the sovereignty of laws that cyberspace has no borders, no sovereignty. we ended up with, for example, the national health service in the u. k. the and a chest was completely wiped out from a ransomware attack. if you were coming in to a clinic because you had a test or you had an operation, they can't find your records. they had to go back to pen and paper.
