1:00 pm
[000:00:00;00] a genetic belgium suddenly backtrack it. covert measures reopen, it is a sediment. after its highest court said the restrictions were too excessive. elsewhere, joe biden, distances himself from previous promises to shut down the virus and now said it's up to individual states, not the white house. the story that we discuss his response to the pandemic. so far we have to, we look back what's been a tough year for america. big tech. then we saw leading companies embroiled in political fight with both the republicans and the democrat. buses were going to regulate inside one of russia's most notorious prisons, home to some of the country from most dangerous criminals. in the wake of the soviet collapse,
1:01 pm
like the 1009 talking into sound like this. were all these hard packet criminals give you. this look, been rejected by a fellow prisoner and become an 8 pariah with something they feared on the mouth with a leather well controlled intellectual will be used at 9 from moscow with me, kevin, at 1st and despite europe struggling with the new omicron strain, belgium tonight suddenly, as you turned on some of its toughest cobra restrictions, it comes out to the countries highest court, ruled the measures were too excessive by its judgment, the council state suspends the measure of closure of the cultural sector facilities . it rule that this measure was not proportionate and cannot make it possible to understand why the attendance of theaters and cultural venues was particularly dangerous for the health of the population. essentially what you have is belgians
1:02 pm
highest administrative court saying that the government rules make no sense and as a result, government will have to backtrack. this follows a legal challenge that was filed by a local theatre producer. and it followed a number of restrictions that the government had only imposed a short time ago, amongst these new restrictions where that all theaters cinemas, and cultural venues had to close christmas parties would have to close early, and sports venues would have no audiences. and this is in addition to already the mandatory wearing of moss and people having to work from home. but now we have a situation where everything's reversed. so the cinema's, the theaters and the cultural venues ought to re open. and of course, it raises questions as to just what kind of consistency there is to these government rules and regulations. jago, there are still months and months of the covered crisis ahead of us. if the public is not in our side because of a lack of sense in the measures,
1:03 pm
we will have lost the battle against the virus. now you do have a part of the public that has been very, very vocal in particularly demonstrating and criticizing these government restrictions in recent weeks, they've taken to the streets to voice their concerns. now in general, the covered situation, a cross belgium has been relatively calm. they figures point to over 500 cases per day, per 1000000 people. but the situation is quite different just across the border. if we look there at fonts, for example, phones has registered an all time high of more than $200000.00 new cases per day.
1:04 pm
and that is a high for europe as well. as a result, the government has had to re impose restrictions. you have a situation where the french police are saying that everybody from 11 years and older. now when they are doors have to wear mosque except if they're involved in cycling, if they do in any kind of sports or if they're inside the vehicle. so you have within the, you block itself, different european countries dealing with these high covert figures in a very different way. meantime, the u. s. still tubs the global table when it comes to the number of cova deaths, but president biden's not distancing himself from his promise to shut down the virus and says the solution has to come from individual states rather whitehouse. there is no federal solution. it gets found state level and then ultimately gets down to where the rubber meets the road. and that's where the patient is in need of help or preventing the need for help. just over a year ago,
1:05 pm
biden slammed the trump administration's coven testing efforts as a travesty and said america's vaccine roller was well behind other developed nations. he then promised to close to change the course of the disease news 1st. 100 days in office will vote. and if they didn't really happen over 400000 americans have died from cove it under biden's watch, with new cases hovering around half a 1000000. today, new york spend the worst hits with case numbers. they're reaching an all time high since the arrival of the over crow strain, as he says can tele next. tonight discusses with guess washington's response to the crisis. thus far vitamin said what, for what that is no federal solution. i don't think that is something that one wants to hand from the president. there never was a federal solution to a virus that spreads more easily than chicken box and with each to varian as becomes more and more of the early. the idea that there is some policy or some politician going to stop it. we should have been acknowledging that this is not
1:06 pm
a pandemic. and that this is endemic, at least a couple of waves ago. politicians that's a 1st duty is not only did g d p and inflation and everything, but basically saved the health of their, of their countrymen. and this needs to be done. this was not done. joe biden got elected because of donald trump's of failed handling cove. it in the minds of voters in coming up on the year that he was inaugurated and we have covered as bad as it's been certainly case wise. we can now add up all the rough weeks for biden, to rough year for by 62 percent of americans. and now double chance, they said that when we get to a certain threshold, everything is going to be great. that's how to mean to we're going to be able to live more normally in your opinion, is 62 percent in good enough. the terrible, i mean 62 percent is close to 50 percent. not close to 100 percent. the reason where we're not vaccinated is because people are misinformed. it was not accurate information, but is vaccines and the fake news that are allowed on social media basically lead
1:07 pm
to the fact that patients and people at the end of the day will doubt necessity of having a vaccine. there's definitely a lack of trust in the government as well as the lack of trust in big pharmaceutical companies, especially now that an increasing number of so called lead vaccinated americans are being told. now if you haven't had a booster shot you're not vaccinated anymore, you as bad as all those people. it didn't get back needed. vaccine mandate for domestic ad chapel. do you think that's the direction that we're getting and the vaccines are for your personal protection? we have seen less of evidence that the vaccine limits trans miss ability. if you don't have that part of the puzzle from a political message and law making perspective, then you don't have the pretends to set up the mandate. put up other restrictions of the occupancy restriction or telling people that they need to wear a mask from when they walk into the building to least sit down and they can take it back off. none of this stuff is going to stop this fire. we should be deciding for ourself the best way out of it, the sooner we're going to be able to find the best equilibrium that we're going to
1:08 pm
have in this new reality that yeah, me, tom here in russia, the daily cove italy's been declining, but of course that doesn't diminish the severity of the virus and all that is 600 patients are on critical support at the moment in moscow, a load and receiving vital supplies of oxygen, the country's been wrapping up its production of it in supplies to make sure patients get with the need. oh boy, oh boy. oh boy hm. breathing, how does a person dream? we don't usually pay attention to breathing. we see it somehow attached to the body, a mandatory component of life. i remember the fear when i felt that my breath was about to stop that i was forget and have debriefed ah, was go out with a good bit all new oil. i would say the turning point occurred this year with the emergence of the dell,
1:09 pm
the strain when it became clear that medical treatment required patients to have more oxygen just one average one patient can assume 50 leaves of oxygen per minute if it's not intensive therapy. but it's the case, the serious volumes can rise to 60 leaves is permitted much in a commercial truck with a trailer that can produce up to $1.00 tons of liquid oxygen per day. thus the amount, the average russian hospital consumes daily for you. ah, it's just monopoly. we're now at a filling station where oxygen's pumped in the cylinders under high pressure cylinders are needed by hospitals to help transport patients. today our country produces $2700.00 tons of oxygen per day. in the past we have had to and now we have to work in a manual mode. we have close ties to the ministry of defense rose cosmos and rose out of all the companies that helped supply hospitals with oxygen. mm.
1:10 pm
with time of taking every day, if not every hour matter. but we have been told to ramp up production to full capacity by any means. that's why as demand has increased, oxygen production has also increased from 200 tons to 600 tons. mazel thought, this is all i was a fight for life, fight for oxygen fight for all of us, for you. and for me. merge cargoes under 5 wishing people happy kwanzaa. that's the holiday that
1:11 pm
celebrates her african american culture. but many are infuriated that she didn't instead, address the cities crime rate after 3 people was shot dead in 23 injured over the christmas break. joyous quantities, chicago, i mean i wish to extend a very beautiful and process quite to all of you celebrating missy's as you light the candles and gather in unity. we hope your holidays, hildreth, rejoicing and happy. how many people were shot this weekend? happy cleanser to the 4442 people shot in chicago in 2021. thank you for keeping chicago safe and crime free voting. blue works with chicago experiencing the worst year for murders in a quarter of a century with over 780 people killed. there's also been a significant increase in sexual assaults and thefts. our guests agreed that there mariner politicians should they thought, be focusing bear efforts, said,
1:12 pm
solving the grime way for the city. at the moment i said about the call for unity. i think they're upset that she chose to get that message as opposed to specifically address the crime happening or see all over the over the last year. the fact that she's ignoring the fact that she again doesn't address the fact that over 90 percent of the victims are lacking, brown and over 90 percent of the perpetrators are like i don't think it's the message that people have a problem with. i think it's the wanton disregard for the because she wants to focus on the holidays doesn't really ignore, doesn't really address the fact that a lot of people are not spending the holidays with their loved ones because they've succumb to well being murdered and being killed. the way a lot of politicians think is that if they ignore bad news, the bad news goes away. whereas if they address it,
1:13 pm
it keeps it in the headlines. it perpetuates the new cycle rather than ignoring it, hopefully it falls out of that new cycle. busy and reporters in the media and the general public moves on to other topics for a lot of things that are happening in american society. i think that the public in general is getting tired of politicians going platitudes and basically not doing anything to solve problems. you're without international either on the way here on will these at 9 with me, kevin know in facebook faced a tough year then didn't it is politicians put normal pressure on the company. we talk about it, and the more the days news to of course, after this break in oh,
1:14 pm
driven by dream shapes bankers and those with airs, sinks. we dare to ask her to walk there. nick jam bruno to the shelf at his christmas week. special nick was casey research for a long time, but he started his own company focused on helping people to see that big economic and geopolitical picture to survive and thrive. the changes the head with
1:15 pm
ah, again, facebook, toughest, every year than it seemed politicians on both sides, the divide, putting pressure on the firm. it comes off to expose a's by whistleblowers and renewed concerns of the companies monopoly. he goes down off, looks next the net. how are america's big tag firms become swept up in the countries? polarizing political c from multi $1000000.00 fines to watching the lead blown right off some of their most sensitive secrets for big tech. 2021 spelled big problems and facebook got the biggest kicking thing started to turn sour 11 of its former employees. when rogue and testified that the platform apparently exploited children for profits and failed to sends a hate speech. and there needs to be a radio for a home where someone like me could do a tour of duty after working at a place like this. and, and have a place to work on things like regulation to bring that information out to the oversight,
1:16 pm
or if that have the right to do oversight. regulatory agency within the federal government. yes. taking kindly to whistleblowers is one thing that american officials absolutely can not put on their c v's. yeah. chelsea manning, julian assange, i'm talking about them. but francis hogan turned out to be a very different breed of whistle blower with billionaires and democratic party top dogs sticking up for her. after all, her demands fell conveniently in line with the government's own grievances against big tech. her testimony dovetails very closely with the democrat censorship agenda . their planned era, their desire to heavily sensor social media and to take out their political adversaries. the kind of government intervention that was proposed by how again and those who were pulling her strings is going to take place in opaque fashion behind the scenes. and undoubtedly with input from the intelligence agencies which are by
1:17 pm
nature opaque and unaccountable to the public. when you're a real whistleblower ration you are targeted by the government. you are silent when you are prosecuted and sent to prison. but if you are celebrated on capitol hill and finance, i know by independent companies, i'm sorry, but you're not a whistleblower europe political tool. her revelation has got massive traction in the media and in the senate. you are a 21st century american hero. here's my message for mark soccer berg. your time of invading our privacy. promoting toxic content and praying on children in teens is over. a tack is facing the tobacco's moment of reckoning. mcg zuckerberg try to fight back. my view is that what we're seeing is a coordinated effort selective. we usually document to pay it for
1:18 pm
a picture of our company. i lost his trials and tribulations did not in them. democrats, preston, calling for the ted joined to be dismembered chilton to separate businesses, facebook, instagram, and whatsapp. they also floated the idea that the platform, not just the uses, should bear responsibility for all the content on its pages. and again, facebook try to say face will well, rather put on a new one. rebranding into meta rate. there's martin. i think he's in the middle of some high perf. oh, hey mark. i said let me put my b b on so i can beat you. you'll be able to work out a new world even against and am. who is a good persistence date virtual object laid on an interactive pastor environment. oh you are. yes you are. our company is now met. well, goofy robots may have impressed a bunch of 4th graders,
1:19 pm
but certainly not. the democrats met as in wary cancer to democracy, matter sizing for a global surveillance and propaganda machine. to listen, authoritarian regimes and destroying seal a society for profit. facebook wants us to start calling it meta, but we're just going to keep calling it what is a threat to privacy, democracy and children. republicans gave facebook a good walloping to the social media giant, brought the roth upon itself. well, by blocking donald trump, of course, as twitter did to, if they can band president trump, all conservative voices could be next. a house republican majority will reign in big tech power over our speech for every liberal, celebrating from social media, been the big tech oligarchy can muzzle the former president. what's to stop them from silencing you? twitters bumpier ended up in a change of leadership. jack dorsey stepped down amid reports of growing discontent
1:20 pm
among investors making way for the new boss to rog wall, a man who seemed to have put twitters, use a policy above free speech. our role is not too big, but it was man, man, but our role is to serve a heavily bully conversation and our moves and reflect. there are things that we believe we're healthier, public conversation. the kinds of things that we we don't to worry about. this is focused less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the dance has changed each year yields big tech scandals in abundance. 2021 made no exceptions here. raising questions if there's any way at all to tame the big tech as big oil. once was president pose, his sags russia's prison chief last week as reforms get underway in the wake of damming video that showed widespread abuse in the countries jails up next that we visited. a tory is former presidents and petersburg has now been replaced with much
1:21 pm
more modern facility. the old jail was infamous back in his day in the 1900. 19 when it was home to some of russia's most dangerous criminals. amid the calles that followed the collapse of the soviet union especially coming up the nazis constantine rose coff has been given rare access to it. just to warn you is a special report does contain graphic descriptions of violence. i were in st. petersburg and in front of what used to be rushes most infamous for them for more than a century. this was the largest incarceration facility in the whole of europe, where the country's most notorious and violent criminals were being kept. now we're going to check out the jails, darkest parts that have been hidden from the general public. for decades. this looks like a perfect sat for a horror movie. even after 4 years since the prison was shut down, its empty cells and court are still sent chills down your spine. this is one of the
1:22 pm
solitary confinement cells that were widely used during stalin's role in the thirty's and forty's. and you can see how small it is. it is, i think 3 kind smaller than a regular. so you can, i mean, you can't even fully stretch out your arms while inside. you have to spend days and weeks in a cell like this where it can actually we only stand or sit on the edge of a small metal bed. garza lying down during the daytime is forbidden. well then, and becomes how on earth the prison was billed at the end of the 19th century as the most advanced facility of its kind in russia. firstly because of its iconic architecture. feet cross shape of the 2 main buildings not only gave the jailer unofficial name, but also made it easy for guards to monitor and access every corner of that prison
1:23 pm
. at a time when cctv cameras were a fist for most of its history, the prison served as a pre detention facility. yet and a soviet times. there was also a dedicated wind for those found guilty of the most violent crimes like multiple murders and rapes. this is probably the darkest part of the prism death row. behind the field gate. there was a small basement where they were sentenced to death, were executed. prison came to nationwide notoriety in the 9 to ninety's when the severe economic crisis that followed the collapse of the soviet union and crime rates through the roof. russian streets became an arena of bloody wars between newly formed criminal gangs. what are you looking at? what are you doing here anyway? who do you get to call for that cache you? i mean, it was you that, that would,
1:24 pm
that was kind of talk was colon back then. there were dictionaries of criminals. lang was out of radical, him and his love, my escape used to run among russian criminal circles in the 9992. he spent 8 months in this prison on racketeering charges. i yeah, boy of the businesses. someone told me money. so i went off to deal with the guy, i didn't go to raise the meeting, go guns, almost everyone had your right to to me. things like literally to meet the crime rate was so high in the 90th years, largest prison quickly became too small to fit in all the monsters and violent criminals. up up through the door, opens the ugly monk staring at me. not faces a hog. criminals. yeah, that's wrong. i sat down in the bed down the look like that. you have that figure lit a cigarette and off of these getting the smoke they took the whole pack for me,
1:25 pm
so we smoked together and talked. so i realize it's going to my next warden who served in this prison at the time. recall some of the nightmare receives he witness every day at work to me up and up to 14 people who used to share this behind me. is it true that some inmates even slept on the floor under the bed? otherwise it was impossible to fit everyone in people slept in to shifts. a lack of funding had left the prison without the most basic things like toilet seat inmates ended up rolling their blankets to have at least minimum comfort growing up in russia in the nineties and seeing videos of this presence over crowded south. i vividly remember how terrified i was when i imagine what it would be like, walking into a cell like this, where all these harden tattooed criminals give you this look as the door slammed behind you. and some of the former inmates recalled that being rejected by
1:26 pm
a fellow prisoner isn't becoming a pariah, was something they feared? most. some times have been more than solitary confinement or punishment from the guard. it was not. i mean, this is a terrible place that ruined the loss of people's lives. what you're talking about, no doubt. but still everyone came out to the door. they were mentally damage to me . well, you know how young guys will raise the old mob to the couple of time. so they raped young guy simply because they wanted sex. the country's future president vladimir putin visited the crosses in 1992. he was particularly shocked that prison dentist pulled out inmates teeth without pain killers. the decision was made to shut down the notorious jail altogether and build a new one from scratch. in the next episode, we're inside the new prison that has replaced the old one in the city. or the most important can be is that we have a restroom,
1:27 pm
but you can look from the inside. has any prisoner travis feel and i from you. with what happened? i couldn't cope with my anger and i killed the matter, strangled him. yoshi fish what really want to be back with you? please wait for me. was and tell people that change in times a wrapping up for this edition outs internationals world news at 9 for moscow with may kevin. oh and yeah. like some shows on the next thanks for watching our channel . and for me, in the team as have a very best seasons, greetings, students coming ah, one of the worst ever mass shootings in america was in las vegas in 2017. the tragedy exploded a little of the real las vegas, where many se elected officials are controlled by casino owners. the dank,
