in the ah, in russia will secure its borders in the same way the u. s. does. that's the pledge . let me put in, made, in an almost hour long conversation with us president joe biden, belgium suddenly backtracks on its covert measures and reopened peters and cinemas that after its highest court, said the restrictions were too excessive. elsewhere, joe biden, distances himself from previous promises to shut down the virus. he now says it's up to individual states, not the white house to sorted out. we just got his response to the panoramic so far . plus a special glitch. we get a glimpse around one of these inside one of the brushes, most notorious,
11:01 pm
present home today to some of the countries most dangerous criminals in wake of the soviet collapse in the 990 s walking into sound like this. were all these hard and you have to to criminals? can you look, been rejected by a fellow prisoner common acre? i was something they feared the most the are but guessing live direct. more studios in moscow. this is our to international . i'm sure. thomas certainly glad to have you with us. now, russian leader it was put in, says moscow will act as the u. s. does in securing its borders. that's a pledge made in an almost hour long phone call with joe biden, during which the u. s. president also promised not to deploy offensive strike weapons in ukraine or cheese ilia franco takes a closer look at what the 2 men discussed. though the details of the latest phone conversation between the president of the us and russia have come in from both
11:02 pm
sides. and their versions are not strikingly different. but moscow and washington are indeed emphasizing different things. the advisor to russian president vladimir putin pointed out that his counterpart made it clear that the u. s. has no intention of deploying offensive strike weapons in ukraine, which is a very important thing for moscow. the kremlin has called that a red line many times before. now, besides this, mister bruton told the u. s. president, that russia will defend its own interest just like the u. s. woods if it faced similar threats. now, when the new threats of sanctions, where the new warning came from, joe biden watermark potent responded by saying that this could lead to ties being cut completely between the 2 countries. now moving on to how the details of the
11:03 pm
phone conversation were presented by the white house, according to washington, joe biden called to deescalate the whole ukraine crisis. and also promised that the u. s. and allies will be monitoring all the actions by russia and also that they're ready for any decisions that lot of are makes on ukraine. plus, as the white house puts that joe biden spoke of, reinforced nato strength and also of further military assistance for ukraine by nato. if the situation escalate, you have to remember that this phone call follows proposals being made by moscow for new principles of european security. in particular, what russia ones is, legal guarantees for nato not to be expanded further east and also for new weapons being deployed in places like ukraine or elsewhere on russia's doorstep.
11:04 pm
now we do also have to understand that in about 2 weeks, very important security negotiations will take place in europe in geneva, in particular. and this phone conversation is happening in the build up to what we heard from both sides. that the 2 presidents a won't take part, however, that they will be personally supervising these talks. now a little earlier, the russian foreign ministry spokeswoman said light on what russia once from these talks put together, that would have to do our viewing the talk to will ask us to insure a firm, legal guarantees of security for russia, that nato will not be able to move on the east and that weapon systems that threaten russia will not be deployed near our border. there is no agreed position, but when all the western partners within the e. u. a nato european security is not a new topic. since 990,
11:05 pm
we have been proposing not to allow the security of some countries at the expense of the security of others. what was so interesting about the proposals which are currently being discussed is the, was pretending that this is the 1st time they have heard about it. we already have written fundamental principles in our joint document. and they were supposed to have been already implemented. the fact is that the presidents of the u. s. in russia are in touch more and more often. and we have already heard from both administrations that these frequent contacts will continue in the new year as well . earlier we spoke to investigative journalist rick sterling to things that moscow's demands to stop nato's expansion in the east are quite understandable. i think it's reasonable to say that moscow has very legitimate, legitimate concerns. it looks like the u. s. in the military. industrial complex is
11:06 pm
looking to to increase the conflict in ukraine. nato is already expanded into many countries. there are numerous countries on the, on a, on the border that, that were part of the soviet union. and there are no part of nato. so, given the proximity of ukraine to, to russia, given the proximity to moscow, only 460 miles that the russian demands, the red lines are completely understandable. r t spoke to susanna murphy, a former advisor on russian affairs to ex us president, ronald reagan, who played a major role in relations between america and the soviet union. in the final years of the cold war. she says, the only way forward for both countries is by developing a constructive relationship. you can watch the full interview on r t international on friday at 8 30 am moscow time. but here's a quick preview of what was discussed. it is more important in my view,
11:07 pm
important than ever that switch that you are, the united states and russia develop a constructive relationship. because i think if we can do that and i'm hoping we can, it would be better for the whole world. my goal is always to try to explain russia better than many americans know it as i don't mean better could, but simply more completely than they do. and that's what i did. and that's why i wrote the books i've written because americans, alas, there are many americans who don't know much about you or 2 countries. i definitely in benito far humanizing it each other in each other's eyes and well is neither your very human. you tremendously healing and i think it's a wonderful thing that you can help americans with for many reasons. i believe that we need each other more than ever. now that just my feeling,
11:08 pm
it's important that you and we are able to exchange our different talent despite europe struggling with the new o m, a chronic strain, belgian has suddenly you turned on some of its toughest scolded restrictions. this comes after the country's highest court, ruled that the measures were too excessive by its judgment, the council of 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 belgium's 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,
11:09 pm
amongst these new restrictions where that all theaters cinemas, and cultural venues had to close christmas parties would have to coast 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. you yell, go, 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, we will have lost the battle against the virus. so 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
11:10 pm
in general, the covert 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 at fonts, for example, font has registered an all time high of more than $200000.00 new cases per day, 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 them off. except if they're involved in
11:11 pm
cycling, if they do 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. meanwhile, the u. s. is still top the global table when it comes to the number of covey death, but president biden is now distancing himself from his promise to shut down the virus. he says, the solution has to come from individual states rather than the white house. 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 or at just over a year ago, biting the slammed the trump administration's cove and testing efforts as a travesty and said america's vaccine rollout was well behind other developed nations. he then promised to change the course of the disease in his 1st 100 days in office. although that didn't actually happen. over $400000.00 americans have
11:12 pm
died from covert under biden's watch, with new cases hovering around half a 1000000 per day. new york has been the worst hit with case numbers. they're reaching an all time high since the arrival of the microns strain are chief saskia taylor discussed with some of our guests washington's response to the crisis thus far. why didn't sad 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's some policy or some politician going to stop it, we should have been acknowledging that this is not a pandemic. and that this is endemic, at least a couple of waves ago. politicians. that's the 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
11:13 pm
donald trump's of failed handling of 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 immunity 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 and that goes to 100 percent. the reason why 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 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 a 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,
11:14 pm
you're not vaccinate anymore. you as bad as all those people. it didn't get back to 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 occupancy restrictions 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 buyer. 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 have in this new reality that the mayor of chicago is under fire for wishing people happy. kwanza the holiday that celebrates african american culture, with many infuriated that she didn't instead address the cities crime rate after 3
11:15 pm
people were shot and killed and 23 injured over the christmas break. joyous quanto, chicago. i mean, i wish to extend a very beautiful and process to all of you celebrated the see as you like the candles and gather in unity. we hope your holidays filled with rejoicing and happiness. 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 chicago is experiencing its worst year for murders in a quarter of a century with more than $780.00 people killed. there's also been a significant increase in sexual assaults and thefts. our guests agreed that the mayor and other politicians should be focusing their efforts at solving the crime wave in the city. i said about the call for unity. i think they're upset that she
11:16 pm
chose to give that message as opposed to specifically address the crime. it's happening or see all over the over the last year. the fact that she's ignoring that 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. so i don't think it's the message that people have a problem with. i think it's the want to disregard 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 have to come to be 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, 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
11:17 pm
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 with your, with our international coming up next on our world news coverage, tick tock is slammed for promoting transgender materials among miners that and much more after short break, stay with o s. things that have happened in the world would be done by people who had a great vision of how society could be better. but that great vision is typically the left hemisphere representation. it's not real, it doesn't take into account any of the complexity of reality. the subtlety of how various and complex people puts them into categories is this lot is bad. we'll get
11:18 pm
rid of them. you know, and change is an organic process. change is an evolution, and the opposition is not between the status and everything must stay the same and everything must be ready. key chain, radical change is not the way that you join me every 1st day on the alex simon, sure. i'll be speaking to guess in the world of politics, sport, business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. hello, driven by dreamer shapes bankers and those with
11:19 pm
airs sinks. we dare to ask a welcome back. this is archie international. now tick tock. the app that is seemingly become the heart of the internet has been accused of helping children to be brainwashed by transgender influencers. activists say that the viral videos promote changing sex for youngsters who identify as trans. oh, major concern is that millions of impressionable children are watching these online inferences. what these videos would lead generation of children to believe is that
11:20 pm
it's easy to change sex. and that is the answer to all of your problems. videos with the trans a hash tag have been viewed 27000000000 times according to the firm's own data. more than a quarter of british users are aged between $15.25 and spend more than an hour a day on the app. activists and parents alike are raising the alarm over the influence the site has on children and tick tock announced this year. it would work closely with stonewall the l. g. b t q writes charity. they both agreed to promote trans content, and stonewall says that it's there to help children cope better with all gender issues. but the director of transgender trend believes that this partnership is a dangerous combination for impressionable youngsters. a need to recognize that. so what is this calabi group that has a particular idea? logical belief, social media platform that's directed towards young people should not be
11:21 pm
aligned with the political not be great all over the transition videos that ready glamorize the idea of magical transition that they should be seen as some of the wires as, as the website that was pushing drunk, some children have always been, they different ways to rebel. and to show you that you were rebel as a teenager, a young person. but this particular way, of course, has the dangers of irreversible magical interventions. if you, if you want to help children to understand the feelings and fail, not so alone, then you can have a lot of material that talks about how you can feel uncomfortable. no sex, you can fail that you're not off the girl or look up the boys that you don't fit in with the stereotype. not presenting children with, with content about those kinds of problems or, or gender dysphoria. so it's
11:22 pm
a political message. stonewall and and others are sending children. it's not helpful message that they should be able children to find better coping strategies for those feelings of not fitting in a feeling different. ah, president putin fact rushes prison chief last week has reforms that get underway in the wake of a damning video that showed widespread abuse in the countries jails. next, we visit a notorious, a former president and st. petersburg that has now been replaced with a more modern facility. the old jail though was infamous in its day back in the 1990 s. when it was home to some of russia's most dangerous criminals. amid the chaos that followed, the collapse of the soviet union confronting arose, cough has been granted rare access to it. just to warn you though, this special report contains graphic, descriptions of violence. me
11:23 pm
were in saint 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 were 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 in corridor are still sent chills down your spine. this is one of the solitary confinement cells that were widely used during stalins rolling the night in the thirty's and forty's. you can see how small it is. it is, i think 3 kind smaller than a regular. so you can, i mean you can even fully stretch out your arms while inside. you have to spend
11:24 pm
days and weeks and i feel like this where it can affect that we only stand or sit on the edge of a small metal bed. lying down during the daytime is forbidden. well then it becomes how on earth in 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 connie architecture cross shape of the 2 main buildings. not only gave the jailer on official name, but also made it easy for guards to monitor and access every corner of that prison . at a time when cctv cameras were mostly with history, the prison served as a pre detention facility. yet in the 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 dark part of the prison death row behind
11:25 pm
the field gate. there was a small basement where they were sentenced to death, were executed. prison came to nationwide notoriety in the 9290s 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 cough that cache you? i mean, oh, watch you that that would, that was kind of talk was colon back then. there were dictionaries of criminal slang out of radical islam mosquito used to run among russian criminal circles in the ninety's, $992.00. he spent 8 months in this prison on record during charges. i. yeah. boy of the businesses,
11:26 pm
someone of the money for went off to deal with the guy. i didn't go to raise the meeting broke guns. almost everyone had gone to that time. arrived at the meeting place in the police to meet with the crime rate was so high in the ninety's, europe's largest prison quickly became too small to fit in all the mob. stories and violent criminals are popular if the door opens and i filled the ugly mugs staring at me, their faces of hot criminals. yeah, that's all i sat down on the edge of the bed plates and sit down these guys looking at me like that. as i lit a cigarette and off of these gangs the smoke they took over the whole pack for me. so we smoked together and talked so i realized is going to be okay. next warden who served in this prison at the time. recall some of the night mary scenes he witnessed every day at work for me to have caught up to 14 people used to shed this tiny cell. is it true that some in and slept on the floor under the bed?
11:27 pm
otherwise it was impossible to fit. everyone in people slept into 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 in 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. were all these hard tattooed criminals give you this look as the door slammed behind you. and some of the former inmates recalled that being rejected by a fellow prisoners and 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 knew that this is a terrible place that ruined the loss of people's lives. what your mortgage? no doubt, but everyone who came out to the door,
11:28 pm
they were mentally damaged. it's kind of well, you know how young guys were raised quite old mob to the couple of times. they raped young guys simply because they wanted 6 in the countries. future president vladimir putin visited the crosses in the 1992. he was particularly shot at prison . dentist pulled out inmates ti without painkillers. 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 is the city. the most important is that we have a rest. you can look from the inside. has any prisoner trotted feeling night from you? what happened? i couldn't tell you the language and i killed them. i strangled in your wishing fish. what really want to be back with you? he's wait for me. so the come in the program. we speak with hunger and foreign
11:29 pm
minister. peters shorter to discuss the issues that have shaped this past year, just after short breaks to us or to international. ah, with farmers with each one is a small window. let's use a can i see with a couple of menu i wasn't at the department with issue machine that i did with more. i need to put that amount
11:30 pm
