6:02 pm
large scale clashes between protesters and security forces. have been seen in this city as well. just like security forces awaiting a major crack down against what they're calling terrorist gangs. thus after days of deadly anti government riots. in the latest developments, the health ministry has declared the capital north fulton, a covey, red zone. with st mobs upon causing the army con, very, to spread uncontrollably. we heard from a journalist in marty which as mentioned, which has become the focal point of the unrest. and he described the city's rapid descent in the chaos badly. i'm glad. every 20 minutes you can hear shooting the police department me. there's automatic fire and pistol shot i think lumping. it seems like they are trying to storm the police department today. i walked across the central square and saw the burned down city hall and the president's residence . i talk to people. every one is scared. people are rushing out to buy food and stores. there are cubes again,
6:03 pm
people have no access to information because of the internet outage when they don't understand what's going on. that like him, us dozens of protesters and at least 18 police officers have been killed in a marty alone. there's been a massive security presence throughout the day. the and reports of gunfire outside the mayor's office, which was stormed and thoughts on wednesday. ortiz eager to don of money to get into kazakhstan and he sent this report from the capital. so clashes in the largest cassock, city of al, my te and former capital have entered the night. in fact, what we are hearing from the ground is that the security forces that they are conducting an all out anti terrorist operation. this is what they're cooling it. and essentially the goal of it is to get rid of the protesters in the streets. and when i say get rid of it, it means that they are ready to resort to all means necessary. in fact, we've heard, we've seen some videos the where are these? where, where are the security forces announced through loud speak is that they are prepared
6:04 pm
to shoot on site. anybody who decides to remain in the streets after the curfew, which starts at 11 p. m. low coat time here. ah ah ah well, an official representative of the collective security treaty alliance has confirmed their role in helping the catholic authorities here, rhetorical cause of some of these keepers from the collective security treaty organization have been deployed in cassock stand for
6:05 pm
a limited time period to normalize and stabilize the situation. their main objectives are to protect key government and military facilities and assist the security forces of cas extern in restoring line order. well, we do know that thousands of people have already been rounded up over there. and we also know that more than 10 members of the local law enforcement have been killed. some very disturbing unconfirmed reports suggest that some of them were even beheaded. so that adds some very disturbing colors to the picture here. now at the same time, we will, we also know that will thout that hundreds of people have been injured during the clashes, or in fact about a 1000 i should say. and about 400 of them have been taken to hospital. now this follows basically this is, this shows that the government wasn't bluffing when our president to kind of announced that there will be no more world, no more playful approach there. basically that are, they will take a very hard, cool,
6:06 pm
very hard line approach to any sort of descendant to people who decide to stay in the streets and who decide to stay violent is the thing. before. earlier the, the authorities, they were trying to be helpful. they were trying to show compassion and they even met some of the, some of the initial demands of the protesters. for example, they dropped the prices of liquefied gas, which earlier had seen a hike in more than double. so i believe to kind of even deserve deserve completely dismantled the government and the but that wasn't enough for the protesters. but when the violent survey started to flare up, when basically protesters, a did, they disarmed, are police officers got access to guns, good access to live ammunition. when that happened, when they started to shoot, when they started to loot and ran sacker, well, banks and shopping malls and even trying to storm and burned down our administrative buildings. that's when the government here has said enough's enough . and so they have moved in, in fact, our to kai,
6:07 pm
of the president. he did not means his words when he announced the new approach to protests was fish carries their season, buildings and infrastructure, including sites, housing, firearms. these terrace gangs are essentially international. they've undergone serious training abroad. their attack on kazakhstan must be viewed as an act of aggression. therefore, on the basis of the collective security treaty i have today appealed to the heads of the c. s. t o states to assist kazakhstan and overcoming this terrorist threat. in fact, this is no longer a threat. it is undermining the integrity of the states. this military block, this military alliance that unites under its umbrella kazakstan, along with 5 other posts of yet nations. while this military block has already sent a thousands of its troops to begin a peacekeeping forces to the country to kazakhstan, and uh, they are already here. at least some of them are already here. and are they are ready to begin their mission, as kazakhstan has reached out for international help now to well, so that it, there,
6:08 pm
basically restores the law of restores. are the rule of law and order in the country . well, in north fulton, which was formerly known as ostena, most fights have been cancelled for security reasons. we spoke to a woman whose parents are actually stuck there and with whom she is not contact, made or used to live should have gotten yesterday, my parents were going to leave no sultan for saint petersburg and arrived the same day in the evening. first, they were told their flight had been delayed, then around 10 p. m. local time, they were allowed to board the plane. then they were ordered to leave the aircraft and told to leave the airport as well, that the flight had been cancelled my these time. they had passed through customs and that's where they are currently. the currently 8 russians there. the rest managed to leave. they're getting no further information and they can't reach to them. they arrived in casks telling me december to celebrate new year with our grandparents who live in a small city near the capital. they managed to get to know sultan, as far as i know, some acquaintances gave them
6:09 pm
a lift. they weren't able to stay because they had to get back to their work and st . petersburg. they have been trying to reach the russian consulate in kazakhstan, but so far to no avail. the last time you katerina topple, spoke to her father was on wednesday evening, and she recorded the conversation and in it, she described his on his wife's flight. what movers here, i'm sitting room, there are 8 of us sitting here. they don't say anything to us. they just tell us to leave. but where will we go if there is an emergency here, they don't give us water. they don't provide us with a hotel room, nothing, and there is no mobile connection. luckily, we were given a chance to make a call from a cassock number, but there is no internet and no connection at all in the russian embassy in kazakhstan has confirmed that the internet is down, but the official, so they're doing all they can't help russian travelers caught up in the chaos in terms of why we're seeing what we're seeing, the pricing started after a new year fuel price hike,
6:10 pm
because our president has tried to address that issue by imposing a 6 month job on the cost of petrol measles and liquified petroleum gusts. motorists and now rushing to philip, leading the long lines of cars around petrol stations in the countries form a capital drivers that even apparently fighting one another to get the prompts enough. the more context covers on is the biggest of the central asian republics and shares. it's borders with russia and china. it's a key part of beijing's belt and wrote initiative of the world's 9th biggest country, cuz i still has vast natural reserves. it rang 12 among global oil producers and is the world's leading uranium exporter. the security clubs are an immediate impact on the price of the radioactive heavy muscle is shuttled, 8 percent and economist hillary ingle, things to may have in the formally stable cause i've done is a red flag for investors on potentially even an international security risk. more
6:11 pm
of political issues and the economic one, but obviously it must be a big concern because the amounts of civil disruption that is taking part in that country. i mean it's widespread in very expense to be very severe. so i think that we possibly secured to confirm with its very, very important that uranium is available not clearly with a significant disruption that is going on in public thumb. that is certainly in the short run. in some doubt supplies will be that i think it will make foreign investors quite nervous. i think they will be looking for more stable economy. they may have been very stable off now. i mean, it's a huge, great country. it graphically, very centrally. it's got very important a lot china, but what is taking place my country at the minute i think will be foreign companies
6:12 pm
from actually putting investments. and i think they'll be looking elsewhere. well then we'll just financially benefiting in one way because they share price with sales training. the u. s. companies has gone up, whereas they share prices go down so that the company is actually involved in uranium production elsewhere or, or maybe making finance guidance. and i think that will continue just within the last few hours, planes carrying peacekeeping troops from russia and bella. ruth landed in kazakhstan the country to, to fix that. the members of the moscow based security alliance, the thea t. o. the alliance answered please from the catholic president to help restore law and order. and the c s t o. secretary general says that the peacekeeping troops, with the sole purpose of helping context on in this difficult period city is lost though all of these insinuations about our troops like we're going to break up demonstrations are not true. that's what the cars like leases for. they will do their job and our job is slightly different. some rumors about an intervention
6:13 pm
occupation and other things started to spread. it's just stupid. i once again state . this is the c s t o countries move to support kazakhstan and such a difficult period. this is the main reason for decision. there's no other reason for it. as soon as the situation stabilizes, the operation will be suspended on the troops will be pulled out. so it's unpleasant 1st to hear that we're literally sees an opportunity. it's fake. c, s t o countries show willingness and sincerity in helping context on that through such a trouble period. however, the white house press secretary gen, sorry. he says that washington has some questions regarding the legitimacy of cuz i started requesting to deploy c. s t o peacekeeping forces were closely monitoring reports that the collective security treaty organization had dispatched its collective peacekeeping forces to cause extent. we have questions about the nature of this request and whether it has, it was a legitimate invitation or not. or we don't know at this point. so to discuss this,
6:14 pm
we can go live now to nicholas. jess davies is a journalist and author and is written extensively about u. s. foreign policy and war. nicholas, thank you for joining us here. our see international. yes. so, as we heard just then from jen saki, she was raising some questions about the legitimacy of the calls from kazakhstan, seeking help from the c. s. your alliance. what do you think a goal was without remark? i think just generally to, ah, you know, to, to make passive general sort of information was to have between us and russia and china. you know, i mean, it makes perfect sense. the context time would ask for some help in this situation . it's a member of the c s t o and you know,
6:15 pm
i don't see how that could really be any question that it is, the government context on that is asking for help from it's made this year. you know what? i mean, saki also made the point, you know, any actions and cosmetics dawn has to be taken within the context of international humanitarian law, respecting human rights and, and of course, all that should really go without saying, you know, it's, it's a very messy situation. being violence on both sides. ah, and the government has now conceded to us 2 or 3 of the demands of the protest suspended. the rising and the l. p g. ah,
6:16 pm
prices space the president has actually essentially fired mr. master by half the long time, former president is certainly seen to still wheels a lot of power behind the scenes. so getting rid of him, if he really has got a job, which i mean another of the protest is demands and met really, really hope that things are going to quiet down that you know, the and the, you know, the 2500 troops from the t s t o will well play out of pocket for whole and not, not. and taking part in rightly. yeah,
6:17 pm
i mean, some people could say that those comments from saki were a bit rich, given the u. s. history of unilateral interventions, you know, african is done in iraq just to name just name a few. oh, absolutely. well, i mean this is clearly nothing, nothing of that. so it, because of course, the government has done no other government to the rock nor the government of libya, nor they go home, syria, know that, you know, be affected. who is the government jeviana? none of them, you know, invited the united states to intervene and that countries or the saudis, or other us allies for that matter. so i mean, yeah, this is a completely different situation. however, the united states, you know, maintains, with this sort of key our approach to these situations and sort of p r approach to the well that in spite of the united states having dropped
6:18 pm
more than 300000 bombs and other countries in the last 20 years and then the united states being the one that has routinely and systematically invaded and bombed countries during that time. you know, the us tapes really, but prioritizes, you know, they, the information was em, which it always cost. so the force of reason, the democracy, the force of the jet him, i see and you know, by contrast, likes to frame its enemy, whether it's russia or china or iran, venezuela, or cuba. i've somehow illegitimate. this is, you know, of course this, this ho narrative,
6:19 pm
this whole approach to international diplomacy, you know, is wearing very, very thing with, with a lot of people around, well, 20 of us, you know, us backed in us, initiated wars across the middle east. the great you know, the us has now withdrawn from africa and dan it's finally asked a 21, but i just published one through regular power summary. detailing that during that time it has, in fact, continued to bomb. afghanistan and iran can, syria can, with at least another 3400 weapons over the past 219. however, there are thought also do you town that that has serious decline to you. so, you know,
6:20 pm
there is some breathing space in which the us maybe is finally turning back on its endless wards and you know, we better have a case. yes. and do you believe that's why the u. s. on the you very brief because we're out of time now here. nicholas a thing without russia in the coals as part of a destruction for maybe domestic problems that are going on is a peacekeeping force that he's going 9 the end. yeah. yeah, and it is from the c s t o i understand the armenian prime minister disability and major boston. and you know, i'm sure there's a significant number of russian troops involved on the stand russian. and now the russian troops have landed in context on that. yes, same piece, gaping thought, but of course, you know,
6:21 pm
the proof will be and the pudding, i mean whether you know, whether, whether and whether it is in fact able to help to restore or not. and, you know, we all, i bet that it can nicholas jeff davis, journalist and author pleasure to have you on the show. as always, i'm sure we could have gone on discussing that for a long time. thank you very much. you're very welcome. thanks. ok. now is them other news exactly a year on from the u. s. capital riots, joe biden says it was all caused by a quote, whether the lies spun by his previous esa, although notably the american liter got through his entire anniversary speech. without once mentioning donald trump by name from himself, me ma still insist the buttons election was marred by fraud on these kennimore in reports. well, we heard you asked present joe biden, speaking about the events of the previous year, january 6,
6:22 pm
than which the capital was stormed. he used solemn and harsh words to describe the events, and he put them squarely on the shoulders of former president. donald trump. however, it's important to note he did so without ever saying donald trump's name for the 1st time in our history, president, had not just lost an election. he tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power. the former president, united states of america, has created is spread a web of lies. but the 2020 election he's done so because he values power over principle. because he sees his own interest is more important than his country's interest in america centers. and because his bruise, diego matters more to him than our democracy or our constitution, he can accept he lost. now it's also interesting to note that as joe biden spoke,
6:23 pm
he said that the capital rioters were not a group of tourists. they were rather a group of armed insurrection, just who intended to overturn the results of a fair election. he said that the elections that took place in 2020 were the fairest elections in the history of the united states. and he said that russia and china are betting that democracy is debt. now, it's also interesting that com, la harris, the vice president spoke prior to joe biden speaking, and many are wondering if there was more of a common le harris moment than a joe biden moment. despite the fact that joe biden is the president and comma la harris is only the vice president. now it's also interesting that donald trump had planned a press conference for today in florida. however, that press conference was canceled. donald trump cancelled his press conference citing what he referred to as buyers and dishonesty from the congressional probe. busy into the january 6 events as well as from the media in light of canceling,
6:24 pm
his press conference, donald trump did put a statement on the internet responding to joe biden, speech years. some of what was in that statement, biden, who is destroying our nation with insane policies of open borders, corrupt elections, disastrous energy policies, and constitutional mandates, and devastating school closures. use my name today to try to further divide america . the democrats want to own this day of january 6, so they can stoke fears and divide america trumps allegation that the elections in the united states were fraudulent. don't seem to have panned out. however, jo biden's promise to re unify the country and the aftermath of the events following the 2020 elections and the january 6 capital riot. they haven't really handout either. polls indicate that the u. s. public is still very, very divided. recent recent studies and polling. busy data shows that at this point, 53 percent of americans say that divisions in the country are worse than they were
6:25 pm
at the time of the capital riot. in addition to that, only 55 percent of americans accept joe biden is having legitimately won the 2020 election and only and at this point, 57 percent say that events similar to january 6 are likely to occur within the next few years. now the reaction from us mainstream media has also been pretty divided. some outlets are playing up the events of january 6. as the day we almost lost democracy, a great threat, an armed insurrection. other mainstream media outlets in the united states are downplaying, the events, the thing they are minimal. busy that this is employed by the democrats to play up the idea that they are a victim to demonize trumps. or here's some of what we've seen in us media. vast majority of americans believe democracy is under threat today. they're just the body of the evil here. there are a handful of members who absolutely have distorted lie,
6:26 pm
exaggerated about what took place on that day make no mistake about or january 6 was not a one off. it stems from the, the big lie perpetrated by donald trump, putting all the blame on president trump is definitely not fair. and it's also furthering divide the divide in the country. cultural regional and political division has always been an aspect of u. s. society, but the polarization that happened during the time that donald trump was president seems to be escalating. and as the january 6 capital riot is commemorated, it's important to note that us leaders continue to emphasize that the u. s. model for a democratic society is the ideal for the world, and it's what the world should aspire to. however, around the world, there are many who look at the events that happened on january 6th last year. and wonder if that's really the case. meanwhile,
6:27 pm
us vice president kamala horace is faced the bars of criticism for her remarks on the anniversary of the capitol hill. riot. she compared the journey with 6 on rest for the $911.00 attacks and the japanese bombing of pearl harbor charges that killed thousands of people. carmella compare jan 6 to the attack on pearl harbor and the twin towers fear bating, in truth twisting at its finest. president biden and vice president harris speeches to day were an effort to resurrect a failed presidency. more than marking the anniversary of a dark day in american history. a solid majority of americans who condemned the capital riot will still find these comparisons. patently insulting and hyperbolic, and they should, you know, here's one of the benefits of enjoying, at least for democrats. is that one of benefits, enjoying almost complete media dominance as well as having dominance already education system is you can tell the big why. and because people don't have any real knowledge of history, we used to teach history united states of america, we cities, civics, united states of america. but because for a generation of you,
6:28 pm
we have failed to teach say, and then we have non stop media coverage. oh, all the every neither blasting this idea. then it leads people who don't have the real fast sit there go home. maybe it's true. and there's another famous democratic socialist who basically said that if you tell a lie a big enough to keep repeating it, people eventually come to believe in the why can you maintain only for such time as the states can shield the people from the political, economic, and military consequences of the lot that set you all up to date with the latest from around the world. and of course, those domestic events unfolded in kazakhstan. i'll be back again with another bulletin in just over 30 minutes. ah. all those german by dreamers shaped bankers and those
6:29 pm
with i a there to ask in ah welcome to the alex savage. so i have a very happy new year to you. oh, yes, happy new year. but before we bring the final form fair, well to 2021, we thought we'd take a look at some of the show highlights from
6:30 pm
a turbulent you called i still dominated in 2021. and they still feel that the leading international expertise help understand. and we'll see this pandemic for 100 years. protecting young people from something with a risk profile, the sorts of the same frequency as the side effects of the vaccine. but the wider protection isn't being taken into account, so it is a difficult decision. i can see why they've made it, but i would personally have supported encouraging anyone who is talking up getting a job because i think it will contribute to our ability long term to control the virus that she working with scott and has been very, very powerful over the past years, it's important that we continue that kind of record check we as we. ready do. ready actually and a lot of, i mean i'm hearing stories of people being told to so we are news. ready scene rather than find somebody to give it to you,
