tajikistan on kirk, it's done. they're working to secure a vital infrastructure or senior correspondent, not just the was granted exclusive access to the peacekeeping mission. he flew into, i'll not say, with the russian contingent on a defense ministry thing. ah, we have now rob. good. how about the a 50 at the very so i've got started with much of the violence that some of what's the address took place. the city was largely a bud. bye. look, books were left for mcgraw. does that include a free car shopping center? this is one of the alluded many shop, broke it
a d. m with activity. yes, this feels that he's how much he has seen absolutely printed all day at some point to me. only minutes past, but we did other played lag or, or taking off fare. my daughter, the thief. he's breakneck this frenzy activity that we're seeing is happening here in alma double just what airfield. but also all across gather, started major cities, major airports as well as a lag crossings where troops, rober allied nations continue to poorer.
and here's another batch of troops that were mobilized so quickly for these operation troops to get from from armenia from belarus, from russia as well as the ticket start and get started on making their way in the context of the answer. but cool. the help, which was catholic stud triggering the collective security organization agreement that it as it is a member of because does that start believe that it is under a ford outside attack?
it is looked at the protest. for example, the, the highly organized nature of arrives the fact that right is targeted military, our civil law enforcement buildings. the fact that the marauders and looters have also been so organized, as well as the fact that many of the active is so called activists who are bad in these roads that are doing so from abroad, which is ground. the trigger, the collective security agreement. what has now been figured and livers allowed all these to make their way into the thought morocco sd of on the ground and say, meanwhile checkpoints are being set off to enforce the curfew in the country's capital nurse saw some. there are 6 of them on our trees leading out of the city. the situation has been relatively come in the capital. however, it's been arbiter red zone due to the coven situation, there,
which authorities say was exacerbated by the riots. the protesting cows extended 1st broke out in sunday, after a spike in the price of liquified gas used as petroleum and vehicles. it happened after a price camp was listed, which has since been re imposed by the president. his government also earlier resigned over the crisis history. a quick recap of how things have been folded. ah, ah ah ah
chairs borders with russia and china as the world's night. biggest country gas exxon has vos natural resources at ranks among the top 10 global oil producers, also riches bacon or cosmic drama, is in cows, extent. security. there has been tightened with the high terror alert sent because expel. is the world's leading really, mon exporter. the security collapse has pushed up the price of the radioactive heavy metal, which is used in the production of nuclear fuel by 8 percent. the country also plays a prominent role in the crypto world. it is the 2nd largest bitcoin mining nation. the national internet outage and seemingly cause the global price to stop by 10 percent. and the last number of days, economist peter earl, thinks instability such as what we're seeing in cars exam could become a long term crypto problem. i mean, bitcoin mining moved across the border from trying to get extend may of last year
when chinese grad down cause except a great place for money. big coin has an abundance of cheap energy. but, but the thing is that again, we're finding out now that there's no real great or there's no perfect place. i mean, i suppose we could see mining move west georgia as or by john. but there's a certain level of implicit either either political risk or instability. that's never going to be agile. this is never going to leave. it's always going to be there. because it's, dan, of course, has relationships with both russia and china. and if the miners were to move further, west were still talking about the sphere influence of russia and asian european countries. and if they move into western europe, then you're talking about the you, the easy bait and that regulatory factor. so it will take a very independent states when that's freedom, which is and has a lot of economic autonomy to welcome between mining. otherwise, of course,
she has some influence will continue to factor into where it's safe and not safe to mind. russia has slammed us secretary of state anthony blinking after he use some harsh rhetoric to address the presence of russian peacekeepers encounter extent in a speech prior to meeting his russian counterparts later. he chose to focus on questioning the nature of the c s t o request for help, rather than focus on the actual rights in the region or to kill up and has more. we have antony blank in the u. s. secretary of state. he was speaking to reporters about the top news events of the new year. now he touched on the situation and kaz at stan. one might expect that he would offer his condolences to those in the country were in danger. but instead of doing that, he decided to talk about another country. this is what was said by anthony blanca. there are very particular drivers of what's happening cause it's done right now as
a said that go to, you cannot megan and political matters. one lesson recent history is that a, once a russians are in your house, sometimes very difficult to get them to leave. it's important to note that he's speaking as the secretary of state of the country with a long pattern of remaining in countries that never invited them. syria never invited the united states and neither did afghanistan. neither did iraq. neither did a number of countries where the usa continues to maintain a military presence, but the situation with causing dan is quite different. it's the authorities of cows extend that are asking for support and the block i has offered its support to cars at stan after the countries president reached out amid a security crisis, but apparently antony blank and thinks he knows better. this is what he said. it would seem to me that the cause, like authorities and government certainly have the capacity to deal appropriately
with a, with protests to do so in a way that respects the rights of protestors while maintaining long order. so it's not clear why they feel the need for any outside assistance. so we're trying to learn more about it now. the president of cars at stan himself reached out for support amid the security crisis, arguing that they needed support in light of what's happening on the grounds. anthony blank and says this support is not necessary and seemed to know better than the forces that are actually in the country dealing with the crisis. meanwhile, we have gen saki, the white house spokesperson, along with blanket, questioning the legality of the o. s. the emission being sent to cosmic stat. well, it is legal because 6 countries signed the treaty comprising this block and saying that if such an emergency situation did arise, that they would intervene in each other's countries for security reasons. and this is peacekeeping forces. these are peacekeeping forces being sent in. now, antony blanket and his remarks also touched on ukraine and the situation ukraine.
and he said that the meeting that's coming up is aimed at at lowering the temperature between the united states and russia. but he then accused russia of, quote, gas lighting and pushing false narratives when it comes to the fact that russia has raised its concerns about nato expansion eastward. he said the never has promised that nato wouldn't expand, even though russia has provided many documented instances of united states making such a promise that has been broken. now we have a situation out further where at this point, at this point, ukrainian authorities and others are raising allegations about the fact that rushes troops are in russia. russia, moving its own troops around within its borders, is not a threat to ukraine, but the united states continues to play this idea that somehow russia is a threat to ukraine. and of course, we have this allegation that somehow russia that somehow the united states never,
never promised not to move nato eastward. here's what antony blinking said. there was no promise that nato wouldn't expand. nato never promised not to admit new members. it could not and would not. the open door policy was a corporate vision of the 949 north atlantic treaty that founded native russia has provided many examples of nato, promising not to expand the james baker. u. s. secretary of state said nato would not move an inch east. we also had statements from german foreign ministers and german fish bills. these statements were made. russia has documented this time and time again, us officials to present to you to pretend these things that russia has provided as evidence. they simply don't exist, they just pretend that they didn't happen. but regardless, the upcoming meeting is expected to cool temperature. that is the aim, the hope is that us russia relations will improve. that is the aim of the meeting next week between the leader of russia and the leader of the united states. but
this, these words from blink and just a few days beforehand or certainly not, not cooling tensions. we'll discuss all that i'm delighted to welcome on to the program, scott ritter scouts or former us marine corps intelligence officer. busy and it's good to see you, anthony, blinking claims called once russians are in your house, it's sometimes very difficult to get them to leave. not considering the u. s. a 750 bases in at least 80 countries worldwide. russia has 21 basis overseas. it's hard not to judge the statement of hypocritical it's pure hypocrisy, but it's a par for the course when it comes to, not just the biden administration, but frankly, speaking, any american administration in the post cold war era. you know, the united states continues to be a bitter bad. so somebody like vladimir putin took over from a person like boris yeltsin. i mean,
the 1990 s were the ideal for the united states, a compliant russia that allow us to buy their elections, take over their industries and serve america. the way americans wanted to be served was replaced by, you know, a stronger leader who sought to assert no russian sovereignty. and the united states has been struggling to deal with that ever since. and so we are critical, every chance we get anything russia do, does whether or not that criticism hasn't legitimacy. why do you think the u. s. is so concerned about the deployment of russian peacekeepers in cows. it's done. there's essentially carnage on the streets. the country asked for help. the help was given by an ally, and yet there's a lot of criticism. i think the united states is afraid of legitimizing, a model of, of lawful russian military intervention. and, you know, because there can be no doubt to what russia is doing because extend today is
lawful it's part of a treaty relationship. they were requested to intervene and they are doing so effectively. and this is not the, the model of russian behavior the united states wants to encourage, especially when considering the, you know, what could be happening in ukraine in the, in the months ahead. you know, so the united states wants to discourage russian military deployments outside of russia's board is not encouraging. you see the us having other interests in causing them? of course we have an interest in catch us. we're old companies operating cars extend . we recognize the strategic importance of cars extend. it's a link between russia and china. it's sort of the foundation of not only the c s t o, but also the shanghai coordination organization, the ceo, a larger well political, economic organization that has
a military aspect to it. because extends the linchpin that holds us together. and if cause extend functions, the shanghai cooperation organization functions, we have the ability or russia and china and collection of the mirrors have the ability to create this, this year, asian political, economic, your stronghold that will be able to compete against europe in the united states. so it's in the united states interest to engender instability. indeed, the rand corporation, which is a think tank that as very heavy influence on the american policy making, has on several occasions publish papers that encourage justice to, to create instability in central asia in order to weaken russia's position. a lot of geopolitical modifications isn't there. and high level talks next week. scott, do you expect the unrest of further affect relations between moscow in washington was we saw
a 20 blanket statements united states will seek to exploit any perceived weakness or any, any trouble to, to divert attention away from stone weak position coming into these talks. i mean, the russians are put united states on notice that, you know, the united states must come up with an agreement, a verifiable agreement that shows respect for russia's national security interests and in the region in ukraine and throughout europe. the united states. i don't believe at this point time is prepared to do that. and if this discussion is left purely on the merits of that, it's not going to bode well for united states. so i think the stage is looking for every opportunity to divert attention away from its own weak position going. and i think because then in the instability there is something that the united states in you to exploit for its own benefit. how many? thanks for calling us today. scott ritter, a former us marine corps intelligence officer. thank you.
ok. ok. let's move on to more world news. 21 minutes into the program. the british prime minister is once again having to fend off corruption allegations after emerge . he withheld revealing text messages from a watchdog probing sleaze in the bras. johnson asked a party donor for more money for luxury refurbishments to his slot and seems to suggest he'll do political favors in return. his rival say it smacks of cronyism. it's pretend believable that bars johnson didn't know who was paying for his luxury flatter innovations. if so, that is corruption, plain and simple. by attempting to hide the truth, boris john santa minds, his own office, its thinks of the was kind of conservative cronyism with bowers johnson, simon. they happy to scratch his donna's back to get his flat to stop in return. while that is indeed the case of cause new year,
new me hasn't exactly defined bar as johnson's 10 year this year, whatsoever in fact is embroiled in fresh accusations of tories sleeves and corruption even fools in the prime minister to give a quote, sincere and humble apology. for crucial messages relating to the downing street flat refurbishment. of course, you remember last year orest johnson was a bird to seek the cash to pay for this rebound. of course, prime ministers are allowed up to $30000.00 pounds every single year. if a force johnson spent well over a 100000 pounds, now it seems like the very man that coughed up the halls of this cash with a tory donor who at the very same time, was seeking to see a great exhibition, which is a set essentially a showcase of british innovation and the great empire. now, these text messages dated back to november of 2020 where bar johnson was trying to get the approval of a top interior designer to transform this flag which was being described at the
time as a bit of a tip. now, despite apologizing, barnes johnson says he doesn't recall asking for this cache and that he didn't disclose any of this evidence to the electoral commission that's investigating the reef up because the text was just don't exist on his phone anymore. well, obviously the opposition is crying foul, but this story really seems to change, minute by minute force. johnson initially said that he actually paid for this revamp, then some time later you said any loans that were related to the downing street with savish, men would of course be declared. and you cool. but then at the end of last year, or the johnson insisted that the u. k is not corrupt by genuinely believe that the u. k. is not remotely a corrupt country that i, nor do i believe that our institution are corrupt and, and i think it's very, very important to say that well, this of course isn't the 1st tory party schedule. of course, last year we saw a november investigation found that tory donors have been offered seats in the
house of lords and there were, sees allocations that many 3 m p 's were having 2nd jobs not to mention of course, december was daft, and these downing street christmas party allegation, but in relation to this particular mass, boris johnson has indeed been cleared of breaching any ministerial codes downing street. so that's normal practice for the prime minister to receive project proposal. but many people really question how normal is it to receive conversations about project proposals, while at the very same time, the prime minister is seeking a huge sum of money. while we spoke with norman baker, a former minister of state south the u. k. home office, he didn't hold back either. he's of the view, the prime minister is the most krupp, leader in modern british history. he's very clearly been trading off the favors in order for my own purposes that his corruption and very much of the independent bodies which are looking into this will not will not feel any
consequence from coming up with a favor and say what they find is perfectly fine, it's breaking the law, breaking the rules and needs to be removed. you know, some of the scandals which are be now been taking place have been to the general public, rather, arcade and distance. but i think public understand very well if i want to lessen both one, which is the idea that he will have boxes for his friends while telling everybody else they are home and not through the routers. are they every in the country? he's guilty by public opinion on that matter. norris, don't you the 1st by mr. i think who's behaving the way it is the spectacle and i'm watching aside the standards unsafe dancer. i've been so much part of our democracy . i'm very angry about this. our country as you go reputation in the world, he crashing it. ah, okay, another story to bring you to
a germany's cobit regulations. they're about to get even tougher. under new rules coming in, being fully vaccinated won't be enough to enter bars and restaurants. customers will have to show a negative test or proof of a booster shot. it comes after a spike in the infection rate. our teas paula slayer is in berlin. she's got the latest. purred from the german chancellor of schultz who agreed with the leaders of the 16 states of germany to impose strict rules and regulations in an attempt to try and counter the spread of cove at 19, at a press conference that was held on friday. here in the capital city of berlin, a new regulation has been put in place, particularly for restaurants and bars. now here, as you mentioned, access will only be given to people who have not only had to vaccinations, but in addition, have also had either a booster or
a negative taste. so it's no longer enough just to have had to vaccination. if a person has had that booster, they will then not me to corrine team if they come into contact with a person who does taste positive for covert amongst the other things, there is to be a shortening of the quarantine or the self isolation period. and until now has seen a maximum length of 14 days, it will particularly be shorten for so called critical worker. so this includes your police, your emergency angel, medical staff, the current regulation in terms of the being a maximum of 10 people. when you have a public gathering for people who have been either vaccinated or recovered, will continue now the consulate to justify these rules and say that it was necessary. if indeed the country was to have better control of stopping the spread of the infection in future. it comes at the same time that the german health
minister has admitted that the biggest problem, problematic area here, is restaurant's way. he says people sit for hours and without any kind of math and not always with social distance thing. meanwhile, early this week, there are more than 20 boys and girls who received the wrong vaccination. they received a highly concentrated vaccination that was made to be for adults, not for children, but the ages of $5.00 to $11.00. that happened at the vaccination thing to do. now we have heard from doctor to say that they are in constant contact with the parents of the children, and they all know dire consequences. while at the same time moving forward, the decision has been made to now have different vaccination centers for children and parents to try and prevent that happening. all of this coming on the back of the ongoing protests here across germany by people who are against the vaccination or who are against any kind of restrictions when it comes to dealing
with cove at 19. on thursday night embedded we saw nearly 200 people take to the streets. also the same night we saw hundreds of people take to the streets in overt how's and take a look, isn't. we're not left, we're not right. we just want freedom. peace and not someone telling us whether we have to get vaccinated or not. everyone should have freedom of choice. i feel the measures a disproportionate and i find this division in society. questionable. i want the parties to listen to each other so that we are not constantly divided by this. it's no longer a matter of being vaccinated or not vaccinated. everyone should slowly wake up and ask themselves whether all the measures we have been subjected to here for almost 2 years justified. now, a monday evening alone, more than a 100000 people rallied in demonstrations across germany. the government has previously bad rallies, but what we see happening now is
a lot of an authorized so called walks, where by and large people are protesting peacefully. but sometimes there is an event of violence or leslie or no time for another visit in moments to the dennis miller plus one studios find out who the host and comedian is engaging in conversation with today, right after the shortest. great goodbye ah ah, bill max and stacy are in mexico binary heading south and we're getting closer and closer to the epicenter. the global sense.
