i know know what this failure to some extent. i would argue that we're still fighting the civil war in the south is winning in personal views, that can cost you your job. a german navy, admiral steps down after respond to diplomatic route, publicly san crimea is now part of russia. meanwhile, a useful meeting with a candid exchange of opinions at a critical moment. that's how the russian u. s. foreign policy chiefs described. brown to that talks in geneva this week, which gave him a mid rise intentions of ukraine and nato expansion. we recently notified congress of our intent to deliver in 17 helicopters. after the latest round of de escalation talks, the u. s. joins or the nato member states is ramping up supplies of weapons to key at the tells russia to pull back its own troops on its own soil. and
a fight of fact. checking russia lattice out of american officials under may differ pushing fresh unproven claims against moscow. public right ahead of those crucial security tools such not police thought is enough to scroll through a couple of random pages to be sure none of the provision stand on any critical analysis. in many cases, it is simply a very good morning watching the weekly here or not. now, it looks like showing even the slightest support for russia could cause she dearly in the current political climate. a german navy chief had to resign there. he said the crimea is now part of russia and that the west should stop demonizing vladimir putin, but his words sparked a major diplomatic backlash with her on that. his aunt is peter oliver, vice admiral k. r. him shown by caused big shocks on saturday evening,
as he stood down from his role as chief of the german navy. it follows comments that he made about the russian president vladimir burton and the ongoing tensions between russia, ukraine and nato. following this fall out from what he said and everything revolving around it, he felt his position had become untenable. i have just asked the federal minister of defense to release me from my duties as inspector of the navy with immediate effect. the thoughtless comments i made in a neon security and military policy are increasingly weighing on my office in order to prevent further damage to the german navy. i consider this a necessary step. the federal minister has accepted my request when it all relates the comments that shown by made while he was in india speaking to a defense think tank. he was speaking about crimea, which he said would remain part of russia also about the russian president. vladimir burton, who he said only wants respect and probably deserves respect,
is falling pressure because he can do it is easy to give him the respect he needs. and also his us economy. appearance was gone. another commer, this is the fact once the video became public, there was outcry from sections of society saying they're shown by how to go more than an embarrassment what the german maybe commander says here on the label. utterly unacceptable, there must be consequences. but this is not the position of german foreign office vice admiral playing down the russian sabre rattling. this is a shocking statement. this crimea was annexed by russia. it almost sounds like god, blush for putting fire hen and navy chief must not play his own foreign policy. game in a crisis. clearly vice admiral schon box thought he was off the record, but he was also fundamentally wrong on prospects of appeasing russia. ukraine is
also not happy with what has gone on. in fact, the foreign ministry in kiev is calling on germany to officially distance themselves from their fall, the navy chief and what he taught to say they saying that these comments went on to undermine the sovereignty of ukraine. the foreign minister there calling them on acceptable. but this is just the latest issue that we've seen very recently between kiev and lin. just last week. there were problems over the fact that berlin doesn't want to send weapons into ukraine. also, germany has locked the sale of a stony and weapons that were german made to ukraine. this issue concerning the now former navy chief just the latest and was becoming a growing number of problems from austria for a minister. karen, can i so surprised by the scandal around the now former german navy chief it's
a picket, there is some to know what the ability of to, to, to pronounce opinions, to have some sort of pluralism of opinions. i don't see here that the, for the mistakes to install as it is pronounced by the german media buddies and national media bar and large. i mean, where is the crime? the whole thing to turn that into something like breaking international use that to turn it into a headline in days like so, we're really, everybody, i will say i should have other priorities. simply every flexion of very cumbersome situation. earlier in the week, the top diplomats of russia in the united states held a 2nd round of security talks in switzerland, washington as our promise to provide moscow with a written response to the crown that concerns next week. here are some of the key points of the talks. ah, not here, any reasoning,
justifying the american position on the russian ukraine border. only concerns, concerns, concerns with bush and officials. i've never threatened ukrainians as a nation, not even once. president zalinski, who has been under the wing of our western colleagues who patronized encouraging any sorts of action publicly said that if any ukraine citizen regards himself, russian, he should get out of ukraine z regional street, who is the one making threats. and what can these threats possibly lead to? that is the big question is we will not go back on the fundamental principles that we have are and that we are committed to defend. and one of those is a narrows opened, or russia has amassed very significant forces and ukraine's order and continues to do some
100000 troops. most recently, including forces deployed to beatrice. russia has addressed every concern which has been voiced, they admit that it's our own territory. was still say that there are too many troops, and then immediately in the same sense. and they say that whatever americans are doing with their own choosing your it would work is none of our business. we do not claim any spheres of influence, but what nato he's doing in regards to ukraine is clearly showing that the alliance sees it as a sphere of its own influence. it reflects the mentality of the west and community fully confident in its exceptionalism. they can do anything and the rest of us, only with the commission. and yet another wave of accusations against russia, the british foreign office claims to have gathered evidence of the plot to install
a pro moscow government in care of which russia has slumped. does not the misinformation spread by the british foreign office is more evidence that it is the nato countries lead by the anglo saxons, thus escalating tensions around ukraine. we call on the british foreign office to stop provocative activities, stop spreading nonsense and concentrate on studying the history of the thomas will yoke. while there is no evidence public supporting that claim, britain has already called for de escalation. london says one of the potential candidates is former ukrainian mp of guinea, mariah. something that seems to have taken him by surprise, seeing this, has been banned from russia since 2018 and it's not only the u. k, which must go blazes bogged down in so called fake use just hours ahead of this week, security talks, the you a state department outlined what it cited as examples of russian dis, information in a report that presents its opinions, a solid facts. russia's foreign minister was critical of both the content and its
timing it to where you go, go to rosalie brooklyn lease documents, which the u. s. state department has of course prepare deliberately for today's meeting was simply impossible to read the phone itself to scroll through a couple of random pages to be sure, none of the provision stand up to any critical analysis would be in many cases, it is simply a line go to school on learners in response, rushes drawn up its own fact checking less than a keys, washington of a toxic campaign against russia. it is my guess div has compared the 2 stances. you may have seen this list. oh, fantastic. expose a i've russian fiction. that's a good read, bold print and a world painted in black and white. simplified, pre digested and regurgitated russians. bad americans, good nieto does not encircle russia. nato enlargement is not directed against russia. over the last 20 years old nato
coalition potential has been a mass on its eastern flank. the lances expansion towards russian borders is accompanied by the creation earned modernization of military infrastructure. russia has 60 neighbors in the ninety's. only one of those was a nato state. that it became to poland joined, then it became 5 with ukraine and ga, potentially joining. that would be 7 with all the perks that carries like us bases and troops. pray tell how was that not the dictionary definition of encirclement? russia is uses statement from high level officials as well as disinformation and propaganda outlets to intentionally spread outright falsehoods, to attempt to create a pretext for military action. we all know how the u. s. uses differ information to create a pretext for invading independent states. the irony seems lost entirely on the us
state department. we still remember colon bow, right? sadam. hussein has not. verifiably accounted for even one teaspoonful of this deadly material. the chief of the state department, whether of all around 2 decades ago, lying to the world about saddam's weapons of mass destruction. and setting the stage for the invasion of iraq, which killed an estimated half a 1000000 people. because i don't believe that russia has come close to that level of misinformation. there are no credible reports of any ethnic russians or russia. speakers been under threats from the ukrainian government violations of the right self. the multi 1000000 russian speaking population in ukraine have reached an enormous level. the government dobs a discriminatory laws on language education and so called indigenous peoples
driving the russian language. out of all the spheres of life. ukraine is not that democratic paradise. the washington portrays it to be and is one of the most corrupt countries in the world, say various reports, a country where the leaders of the 2 biggest opposition parties are right now, being prosecuted and persecuted, a say to keep them out of power. a country where opposition media has been forced to shut down one after the other or tact without any sort of international reaction . ethnic russians are no longer recognized as native residents. the russian language, the native language of a 3rd of the ukrainian population as now forbidden and schools and government in coffee shops in supermarkets. yes, russians in ukraine are very much the de finish it of persecuted.
nato never promised not to admit new members. on the 9th of february 1990 u. s. secretary of state james baker said during the meeting with the soviet foreign minister, edward shivered. not say about the ironclad guarantees that nato jurisdictions and military units won't move an inch eastward. it's a sorry world where, where russians know what the state department said better than the state department . the shame, the director of the cia robert gates famously warned against the expansion of nato because and i quote, gorbachev's and others were led to believe that that wouldn't happen. west german foreign minister, hantz d 3 again, ship and i quote, this is to a large crowd. nato should rule out any expansion of its territory towards the east moving it closer to the soviet borders. i have much more just not enough time,
but it is remarkable how a document that sets out a fight rush and this information bathes and basks in so many lies of it. so even naughty has become a target of accusations from washington with the estate department insisting out saying felonies. alice buttoning is disinformation to events versus foreign policy brushes. this information and propaganda ecosystem. the u. s. state department has something to say in their brand new reports that stop for a moment and enjoy top people did devote their time and passion of drool heroes. 3 favorite parts, artie and sputnik frequently give favourable coverage to organizations such as we can meeks, that have received information from hack his working corruption intelligence services, to the people in the state department or on number one, funds reading and watching only r t and sputnik otherwise how can this be explained?
a blow for julian assange and for press freedom. julian, a sans he infuriated washington, now he's facing life in prison. julian assange indictment failed to mention wiki leaks video that exposed us all crimes in iraq. there are several indicators that show artie and sputnik. i'm not analogous to journalistic lee independent media outlets such as b, b, c, and morrison america 1st, artie and sputnik black, b, b, c, and voice of american transparent organizational and financial structures. we never lie about our budget, however, the us agency for global media us. hey jim doug. well, i don't know exactly what they invest in r t and and screwed nick and in other russian media. but i know that is more than what the united states government and the best of course, are media and russian is 10 times 100 targets are around 10 x factor. absolutely
less follows of dollars. in 2019 usa gym allocated $808000000.00 to its networks, while in 2019 artist budget was almost $316000000.00. combining it with the budget of rusty as you weren't near it was only 430000000. or here we have to agree with people in the state department of sees definitely not the same in likely attempt to damage the reputation of may done revolution activists, ukrainian leadership and the ukraine forces in the eyes of both ukraine's allies and the russian population. the criminal person narrative, the neo not to them was rampant in ukraine prior to the during, and also the annexation of crime in. why isn't anyone questioning this narrative, brutal attacks on roma people, l g, b, t, people, and rights activists have been on the rise in recent months in ukraine. the government has taken little action and respond which cannot but embolden and
encourage the attackers message to the us state department question more. who, speaking of the last point mentioned, did not clip the us state department as accused russia major of the trying ukraine as a nazi states. one of the articles presented as being evidence was written for anti bipolar robinson. he told us, see, never cold. you kind of fash estates but rather highlighted the problem with flashes movements still exists in the country. the problem here is not that the government is the fuss as john. so that is clearly an enormous exaggeration. despite restrictions on the use of the russian language and the recent repression of some anti government meter and personalities, ukraine remains arose, be free and open society. it's not remotely fascist. an article i wrote in which i actually say, but the idea about the ukrainian government is fashion is an enormous exaggeration . ukraine is not remotely fashion. specifically what i say in
the article, and yet this article is linked to in the state department report as evidence r t is spreading the false narrative that ukraine is a fascist state or is the article in facts as the direct opposite. and then there's more similar sort of statements on the next page about something else. the story about a boy who was killed in rebel occupied don't bass, and the russian press reported bad time. he'd been killed by ukrainian drone. the state department report says that the o s. c. investigated and stated that the boy was not killed by a drug and event provides a link to the o. s c e report. but when you go to and you can read what the o s c said, this does not say that the boy was not killed by a drug. it's simply states that the boy was killed by shrapnel and bloss injuries.
so the statement in the state department report, b o s c e said that is entirely untrue. the wall is the u. s. schools for russia to pull back its troops on the cranium border. the 1st shipment to washington, $200000000.00 military. a package arrived in care of on saturday. i would note that the united states has delivered more security assistance to ukraine last year than any point in history. these deliveries are ongoing, including today there's more deliveries coming. we recently notified congress of our 10 to deliver and 17 helicopters of the night to a members, estonia love you, unless you a naval supplies to send more lethal weaponry to strengthen ukraine's ability to defend itself. in case of a russian invasion. russia denies all the allegations about planning any kind of military offensive. germany doesn't support sending weapons to crime, saying that it will not help defuse the crisis. give the keys berlin of undermining the unity between neither allies and of encouraging hooton's invasion. germany
claims arms exports will only push tensions higher. the federal government has had a clear stance regarding arms exports in recent years. we have not supported the export of lethal weapons from germany. he, while local authorities in the self acclaimed and yeske republic claim around $120000.00 you creating soldiers have gathered on the border. civilians in the war torn region have been living in fear for more than 7 years already now. their lives seeing that even greater risk due to the escalating tensions for the us marine corps intelligence officer, scott ritter believes washington's arms exposed to ukraine are counterproductive and that they undermine the u. s. position. if you don't leave a weapons in the united states. that opens up joe biden to criticism from congress at a time when he needs congressional support for domestic programs. so what we're seeing here is the consequences of allowing your foreign policy,
your national security policy, be hijacked by domestic lou. the fact that tony blinking is meeting with lab rob to discuss a diplomatic off ramp for the current crisis. at the same time, the united states is green lighting of the delivery of weapons for the sole purpose of killing russians. because you don't have deterrence, unless you have a real capability, it's totally counterproductive and it undermines the american position when they say, you know, we won't allow nato to join for years. you don't need to worry about it. what's the difference between a ukraine that's a member of nato receiving western military aid and ukraine, who's not a member of nato receiving western military from the russia perspective. there's no difference. the wealth of the world's richest people have double steering the pandemic. while the poor of suffered, increase death rates and poverty due to a lack of treatment and vaccines. those are the findings of report, miles from which he was caught, inequality kills,
and the charity claims the policy choices by governments of been skewed in favor of the rich, the well for the world's 10 riches men has doubled to the pandemic began the incomes of 99 percent of humanity, a worse off because of coven 19. this is not by chance, but choice. economic violence is perpetrated when structural policy choices are made for the richest and most powerful people. this causes direct com to us all the time they make has really exposed been a call. it is and fuel them. so oxide has been tracking billionaire wealth for some time. and of course, the full list shows that it has been growing over the last 40 years. but over the last 2 years it's been really exponential, so we call it a billionaire bonanza. and at the other end of the spectrum, of course, for 99 percent of humanity, it's been a very, very difficult time. and most people are worse off as a result of that. and then make, of course, more than
a 160000000 people have fallen into poverty during this time. and if in a moment when you can see the difference is really showing very, very starkly can't cause success. when there is such disparity, that at one end of the spectrum, you have people who have more wilson, they can spend in several lifetime, and the other we have people struggling to pay their next health bill or, or not knowing where the next meal is coming from. having such a level of disparity affects everyone, even the wealthiest, because you know it's a sign of unhealthy, state of affairs, of a unhealthy society that needs addressing. according to og from the pandemic push more than 160000000 people into poverty. while an estimated 17000000 have died from the kuranda virus and around 6000000 more of also lost their lives due to a lack of health care in poor countries. meanwhile, the top 10 people on the forbes rich list including well known public figures like
eli musk, just phase offs and bill gates of 6 times more money than the poor. 3000000000 combined. while they doubled wealth, the incomes of 99 percent of the world's population have gotten worse since about demick started and you 1000000000 has been crazy roughly every day of some believe's. a key reason for such inequality is vaccine supplies. one of those key drivers for an equality has been a vaccine access to vaccines. so the difference between rich and poor countries has grown the inequality. so, and the poorest countries in africa, in general, only 10 percent of the population has had his 1st course of vaccination america and its economic power and several other countries in the world can help reverse that. from unlocking that in from the calculations that, that we have made, it would be possible, for example, to vaccinate the whole world to chief and health care for all the universal health
care. and there ways and ok. and others have campaigned for lifting those intellectual property rights. that in fact, mean that pharmaceutical have a monopoly over over the vaccines that are not readily available or produced as, as, as, as they could all over the world with the, on the chrome, very into cove. it taking whole world wide countries like denmark, a big ministering, a full thank scene spokesperson for the world health organization took just through the latest developments and what lies at the well, what we see leaks is, is a critical increase in number of concessions around the world. and as we see on current becoming a dominant variance, we have seen in one week 50000000 newly fashion, which is the absolute direct versus the beginning of the decrease from the previous
sleep. so the sheer number of infections will bring more people to hospitals, even though one crew may prove less your disease then don't previous variance, but these numbers are low. we will need more pressure on how system. so it is very dangerous situations. the country are trying to find the best way to, to reduce the risk of transmission. we know what needs to be done. so we hope that people will not be in the market and they will be max and they can become effective mostly those who have not have their primary series of like sees the countries are basically looking into how that we can completely understand the government is trying to find the ways to balance the public health side of the story and public health benefits and get this thing,
socially issues. so you need to do that. however, we are trying to see what is having any different periods or shutting of the virus period than previous studies. we need some time for the time being. we are still being offered 10 days. the isolation, fortune to my cases. 2 weeks current time woke up and now these 2 weeks current, kennedy tucked down, we did appropriate wendy mashonda. this is still probably under the guest who says boosters may come for extra benefit and we are looking to date now. and it is very much possible that we could work out how to prevent a desk donation. biggest benefit is the primary donors of i see and you want to
make sure everyone is with us cooling. this primary workstation is being available to everyone around the world. ok. upset and i've got to check out more new stories by adding to websites on sop t dot com. ah, well the mic no, certainly no borders to tease and you as a merge with the whole world needs to be ready. people are judgment. 2 come in, crisis with we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way. but we also
know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is great, the response has been matched. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together with ah, is the earth still large enough to satisfy the ambitions of jeff bezos? you know, it's got its tentacles in so many aspects of the economy. there's nothing that amazon isn't trying to get into to step by step. the amazon empire has extended its group on the world that walks like ended up being quite like a dog lives in a dog. so amazon looks like monopoly trades like a monopoly makes money like monopoly behaves like monopoly. amazon essentially controls the market place. it's not really a market is a private arena, a wild, where a single company controls the distribution of all our daily products. and the infrastructure
of our economy is loose. the whoo, according to amazon. situational forces can overwhelm, can dominate even the best of us, ordinary people, put in a bad evil environment, can become transformed to become part of that negative environment. and it's any of us or in fact most of us the office of naval intelligence, it was pretty consistent, caught out front for c i, they funded much of this research and i dont know if there was a yield that they, they produce a yield for this cruel science, i don't i that's it. maybe more. i just don't think they do.
