extradition to the u. s. on espinoza's charges. the ruling has been welcomed by his family unsupportive. what happened in court today is precisely what we wanted to happen, but we are far from achieving justice in this case. because julian has been incarcerated for so long and he should not have spent a single day in prism from moscow to the world. you're watching all the international is just going 3. i'm here in the russian capital. my name is peter scott, and he's great to help you with her. the u. s. is putting 8500 troops on high alert. the counter, the supposed threats from russia. pentagon spokesman john kirby says the units could be sent to eastern europe if russia, ukraine, although moscow has repeatedly denied any such plans. these would be additional brigade, combat teams, logistics personnel, medical support, aviation support,
7:02 pm
intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance as well as transportation. and maybe even some additional capabilities after that, the secretary wanting to get ahead of the potential activation and making sure that these units have the time to prepare if and only if they're deployed. the u. s. that is nato allies have also started a series of navy drills in the mediterranean sea, and nato secretary general against ulta. burke has also said the alliance is considering deploying extra troops near russia's borders. pizza oliver has more not story. an awful lot going on on monday concerning nato troop movements and planned movements as well. what we can expect is that there will be more nato troops arriving in the east of europe. later on monday, us time, they'll be a call between the u. s. president and you are a p and leaders, but earlier we heard pretty much confirmation of this from the nato secretary
7:03 pm
general against dalton, beg, natal, will not compromise on court principles. we stand for the right of each nation to choose his own alliances. and naples door remains open. we are considering to further enhance our presence in eastern part of the lions. this could include the deployment of additional ne thought battle groups, while those navy wargames continue in the mediterranean involving the ag yet the american aircraft carrier, the u. s. s. harry truman. we've also heard on monday from france, denmark, the netherlands, and spain who've all either committed or said they're considering committing moving military hardware or troops to eastern europe. now dmitri pest golf, who's the the kremlin spokesperson, said that moscow as paying very close attention to these movements. i don't need these 10, such nato actions and increase nato activity. now borders cannot be ignored by
7:04 pm
a military who are responsible for the security of our country. there is a constant process of drills, maneuvers, and military build up, which has never stopped and will continue. e u foreign ministers were meeting in brussels on monday. they had a lot to talk about, including proposals by the you commission for as much as what could be 1320000000 euros worth of financial package for ukraine. but one thing that jo, several, the a u foreign policy chief did come away from the meeting, saying was pretty much what he said when he went into the meeting, which was there would be no pull out of e u diplomatic staff and their families from embassies in keith, similar to what had been done by the united states and the u. k. i don't think we had the time applies as far as the negotiation going on sunday and going on. i don't think that we had to let the plane and i leave. there was an awful lot of pressure on germany. and therefore, minister and alina bab,
7:05 pm
book in this meeting of foreign ministers on monday journeys come under a lot of pressure because it's refused to send weapons to ukraine. now, germany has said it will provide financial aid. it's also said that will provide medical aid and that it would increase air surveillance operations carried out from our romania. what we've also heard coming out of germany is the, the, the chancellor here all app schoultz saying it should there be an invasion that there would be 6 stream consequences for russia, but amongst senior politicians including those no longer in government, of course, and the in the terms of moccasins, odor the leader of the state of bavaria. he's been speaking to the press saying that europe shouldn't talk to russia as if it was an enemy. we must reject aggression and avoid escalation. nobody wants a war in europe. in doing so, the territorial integrity and independence of ukraine under international law must be respected, but constant new threats and never tougher sanctions against russia alone cannot be
7:06 pm
the solution. on the one hand, because sanctions have had little effect for a long time. and on the other hand, because these new sanctions would often harm us just as much. meanwhile, boris johnson, the british prime minister, has been having his se that's after london sent thousands of anti tank weapons to ukraine just last week, as well as a team of special forces to train people how to use those while they're in ukraine . now the british prime minister saying that an invasion of ukraine could be a disaster of historic proportions. but we also need to get a mesh this in leading you crime from a russian set is going to be a painful and below this. this could be a new chess awful lot of movement in this story throughout monday, most of that movement seems to be in the form of nato military hardware. either moving or planning to be moved further towards the eastern frontier of the
7:07 pm
alliances boundaries. while on see war activist and executive director of world beyond war, david swanson says that most americans don't actually want war, but the u. s. media continues going after its brougham on well, i think it's a sort of a self fulfilling of belief. and this notion that russia in response to all the militarization within ukraine and neighboring countries by nato. a put all of these troops months ago near the border and hasn't used them, hasn't invaded ukraine. most people are not in the military have nothing to do with the military pay. very little attention to the news at all. i and certainly if asked whether they want a major war or not would say no, but are generally aware of small scale u. s. war making going on constantly eternally around the world. i and are horrified of vladimir putin or having nightmares about vladimir putin have been ward that, that the evil dr. putin is trying to take over the world and something must be done
7:08 pm
to stop him. it's another munich, it's another appeasement. it's another moral failure to launch a war quickly enough. and this is, this is what they're fed. a constant diet of on u. s. television, a senior conservative minister has resigned in the u. k. in processed at the government's handling afford allegations that surrounding multi 1000000000 pound covey contracts. theodore argues exit is now power further pressure on 5 minutes to boys. johnson who's already reeling from a scandal over low dom parties at downing street. he's the ali reports from london to the resignation of a peer in the house of lords, lord agnew of olson, who served as both a cabinet and treasury minister and his role was responsible primarily for investigating cases of corruption or fraud and to take his frustration which has led to his resignation. today is linked to the governments of bounce back loan
7:09 pm
ski. now this was a scheme which was hugely popular in the country at the time. loans being given to small businesses of a height of the pandemic in the lockdown to help save businesses to help save jobs, the treasury doting out 47000000000 pounds of money to desperate businesses all across the line to give them a lifeline. but as the national audit office estimates that up to potentially 5000000000 pounds of that could have been, fortunately claimed lord agnew spectacularly resigning the dispatch box earlier saying that his attempts to try to get these instances of alleged fraud investigator will met with nothing. but in action by other government officials, it is my deeply held conviction that the current state of affairs is not acceptable . given that i am the minister for counter fraud. it feels somewhat dishonest to stay on in that role. if i am incapable of doing it properly,
7:10 pm
this is not an attack on the prime minister, but a combination of arrogance, indolence and ignorance freezes the government machine. now we heard the lord agnew stating that his resignation was not intended as a attack on the prime minister, but it's hard to see how it could be anything but a huge blow on bars. johnson, who's under immense pressure following revelations of a number of incidences of breaking of lockdown roofs by himself and others within his government at the highest levels within down the street. while the rest of the country essentially and loc. and there are new reports emerging lead in that forest. johnson had a birthday party held for him, organized by his now wife carry. and that revelation states boris johnson attended that party in the cabin office in down the street at a time when the country was in the 1st national lockdown, and indoor gatherings were strictly abandoned. we've heard and seen this prime
7:11 pm
minister for shrugging of accusations of racism shrugging off accusations of corruption within his administration. but it could be these revelations of parties and other events which broke lockdown rules, which could cause an end to his premier ship. and we've already seen him having to be humiliated, essentially, politically, and apologize at the dispatch box in the house of commons. i want to apologize. i believed implicitly that this was a work event. oh, but mister speaker with hindsight, i should have sent everyone back inside. i should have found some other way to thank them and i should have recognized that even if it could be said technically to fall within the guidance, there would be millions and millions of people who simply would not see that way. a
7:12 pm
senior civil servant within the government, su gray, has been tasked with investigating those instances of rule breaking. and what the prime minister alleged role in those events were. and it's thought that su grey's report could make or break forest. johnson's political future, no doubt, to the glee of his political enemies, those who oppose him on everything from his locked down policies. those who say that he hasn't been harsh enough with the lockdown policies, and that he scrapped things like vaccine passports to those who oppose him. on the question of briggs it, but importantly those on his own back benches as well, who are paying for his blood. and so all eyes will be on what to great reports. earlier we spoke to a house of lords member lord, prem sicker, who says this simply replacing the prime minister won't solve the problem. as the u . k needs to completely overhauled the weights governed. the minister would speak
7:13 pm
a minute or 2, but as the, as has a speech lasted longer and they started criticizing the government. we sent something was up, but then it became more dramatic. when is a resignation letter on the dispatcher table and actually walked out of the chamber? i not really see anything like that before. many people from outside have already sense that something is seriously wrong with the government. very, very serious indictment and insight into incompetence and the heart of the government simply replacing one prime minister with another prime minister, believing in the same ideology, values, and policies is not really good enough. what we really need is a complete change in the way this country is governed, simply replacing one sort of gods with another god. with another set of gods isn't really going to do much of the country. so we need new people centered politics.
7:14 pm
and that is not really all for the moment by any political party. in all the news wikileaks founded, julian r sanchez won the right to have his extradition case reviewed in the u. k. supreme court. he's currently wanted by washington on espionage charges, but there's still no prospect of a song being released. and his fiance says his health is deteriorating after suffering. a stroke recently imprison ortiz shot, it was dusty, has the latest to the son has been quoted permission to take his case to this to freedom court. of course, that means that he can now appeal to you as extra addition decision that was granted at the end of last year with some morris, who is the partner of doing this artist held this as a victory. what happened in court today is precisely what we want it to happen. but we are far from achieving justice in this case. because julian has been incarcerated for so long and he should not have spent
7:15 pm
a single day in prison sooner. sounds still remains behind the prism father, bow marsh prison, which is one of the most notorious prisons hit in the united kingdom and that all of this should be thrown out of court. in fact, that calling for the united states the case and they all do that press freedom worldwide, is stakes. not all cases go to the supreme court. there must be an all people point of law, and the case needs to have a public importance that now has been deemed a public importance and many of us on just supported on and did a defense. they argue that the united states is simply making an example of june assange for revealing these legible crimes of documents relating to the war in iraq, afghanistan, ah, a
7:16 pm
with moon. so what we see now is a decade long soccer, illegal, labyrinth of horror story. i put you in a song, well, he goes through, back and forth, various court systems here in the united kingdom. all of these protests is when they got announcement some few minutes ago. they all are opted into child saying free free at units on. of course this isn't the end. he's still behind balls and it's still a long way to go to,
7:17 pm
to an assigned to try and fight against expedition to the united states. earlier we spoke with activist and pink floyd co founder roger waters. you said this is a small victory for us orange. obviously this is bad and yours hadn't been denied lose. to appeal to the u. k. supreme court. if he, if he had been denied that made by the high court appeal go his, his name would have gone straight to pretty bad. so who would have shouted off with his hedge and sent in the united states to be killed. so, so this is a small victory, but a stellar exclaimed in i could just his snatches of your programming and on. while i was sitting there waiting to talk to stellar explain julian, a so should not have spent a single day either in the wood. dorian embassy, where he was sort of locked up for about 8 years for certainly not so much
7:18 pm
to present because she has committed no crime how many times to have to explain it to the rest of the world. obviously he has committed no active espionage by any definition of the word, probably in any language, anywhere in the world. it should trumped up nonsense piece of nonsense. all. clearly it's obvious to everybody, the whole traditional procedure that's been going on in the u. k. is shirad, it's a piece of data to persuade those of us who need persuading like them trying to persuade me. i suppose that this man deserves to be punished in some way for what he has done. we should be building statues to judy in those songs in our towns, squares,
7:19 pm
not punishing. what he has done is expose inconvenient throughs to the powers that be to the ruling clause. there's been a deadly shooting in the germantown of heidelberg, a good man opened fire in a university lecture hall, killing a student and injuring several others before turning the gun on himself. his ortiz, donny unstrung with more one dead, 3 injured after a shooting at heidelberg university. that's the oldest university in germany, one of the most renowned in europe and for the world in the world for that matter, police said in a press conference just wrapped so recently been an 18 year old man himself. a student stormed into a lecture theater around 1230 local time, open fire on the students present, then left the building before turning the gun on himself. and police said there were 4 injured originally, one of them critically. that we can confirm now that one of those victims that was
7:20 pm
critically injured has to come to her injuries later in hospital. there were reports that she had been shot in the head by the attack and a police at the perpetrator who was acting alone. a lone wolf attack as it were, was a student himself, and used a long barrel good. now that's a rifle to you and me. the type is held in 2 hands and propped against the shoulder . a search after the attack did find that there were 2 of those such guns on the, about the body of the attacker. now this has been a huge event in the city of heidelberg, a huge student population. there. we have had some comment from the chairman of the student body pizza ableman. he said that this is a catastrophe and incredible shock. add to the city. the north of the city has been cordoned off. a swat team was deployed there, a helicopter also to aid in the the search the if there is no threat to the public
7:21 pm
as we understand now, of course that threat was neutralized when the attacker turned the gun on himself. police say there is no political or racial motivation behind the attack. the gunman acted alone. however, when this did 1st, when news of fierce attack 1st broke on social media, there were reports that this was down to radical veganism. and the perpetrator had some kind, deep hatred for students and was exacting some sort of sick, revenge for the suffering of animals on humans. that was rubbish, than the police have said. now that it was a lone gunman, 18 year, 18 years old. former students are there is a p and a press conference has been wrapped up. this kept us up today and we will keep you up to date here, t on any information that we have as in when it happens. and unfortunately, staying with the rather grim topic of gun crime, an 8 year old girl was shot and killed while walking with her mother in chicago.
7:22 pm
the weekend. melissa ortega was hit by straight, good fire during a gang fights on her tragic killing. comes a chicago is witnessing the highest homicide rates in 25 years. there were 797 homicides in 2021. that's $25.00 more than the previous year. and it's all brought about renewed public scrutiny of the way. chicago is policed and left one local pastor crying out for change. is there any hope for chicago, the chaos, the lawlessness. you said a bad chicago, that the criminals, openly mark. i police and i city leaders. even now governor, what makes me so angry theory is that we see our leaders mocking our efforts with their wishy washy id. like to find the police. come on, the police are not our enemy. how many more will it take before our leaders wake up? you know what? they'll never waker,
7:23 pm
you know why they don't care. the homicide rates is met with the older rather pessimistic statistics in chicago. us for this year, the week starting the 10th of january, so overall crime of 23 percent compared with last year theft result. 56 percent, burglary. 10 percent. yet murder so far is down. we spoke with dominic ego, a former police officer from chicago, who says it's short sighted to blame the police for such high cray rates. sort of freak certain situation. this happens disturbingly repetitively and chicago is a broken government system we have from our job search, kim fox to the mayor and her vilification of of the police officers wanted ether to our sheriff. tom dark, who's absent at the helm. they define the police know that is one thing and, and next year is going to be something else. the police will always be the pawns because they're right in the middle. you've got the elected officials who make the
7:24 pm
promise, elect me. i'm going to change things. you get the state attorney who are making deals with the defense attorneys who are also an elective position states attorney, you know, elect me. i'm going to do x, y, and z. then you have the, the citizens who are committing the crimes, who are also the ones who are calling for, say, for neighborhoods. because the crime is not everyone's committed crimes. and you have the cops, the ones you are right in the middle, and the entire burden of peace and prosperity is put on their shoulders with no support from communities or the ones who are there to, to back them their, their government. so they're the ones who are taking the worst position, the hits on all side, and they're always going to be taking the hits if they're the pons. on just across the border vaccine mandates have been causing havoc in canada. it's been hits by supply chain disruptions due to a shortage of truckers nuts after a new job. monday took a fates applying to drivers crossing to and from the u. s. people,
7:25 pm
so to switzer and flooded it with images of empty shelves all across canada. what's one m p was quick to rebuff claims. it's such a supply crisis exists saying he's personally see no evidence of any shortages anywhere. only is this picture not from canada, but i've been to grocery stores in my community and i've objectively observed no empty shelves. this is just another example of conservative misinformation and fear mongering for political gain. liberal members of parliament saying there's no problem whatsoever. i went to a grocery store and look how best plant plentiful it is. there's no pumpkins and i just had to retweet images that my own brother sent me from ontario to the effect of who are you going to trust me or your own eyes? you can feel it everywhere. although from what i'm told, it's sort of worse outside of the big cities in response to the mandates which prevents on vast, unevenly, partially vox truckers from crossing from the us in the canada without a 14 day quarantine. hundreds of canadian drivers have become
7:26 pm
a so called freedom convoy, which is a journey from vancouver to also in protest against the new rules industry groups as saying the restrictions could for $16000.00 truckers off the roads with some even ready to quit the jobs. while there is reportedly a modest optic of drivers getting vaccinated, at some companies, there are substantial reports of higher than normal turnover, and others declaring their intention to leave the industry over the impending mandate at the border. well, the canadian transport minister has defended the measure saying quote, the biggest threats while supply chain is cove. it. that's why we created the vaccine monday for truckers. but david free heights again believes the mandates is only going to cripple the supply chain. 2 years into this a we, you know, they have not imposed a mandate on truckers. they were essential workers. they were the heroes of the road. for whatever minority of them don't get vaccinated, and i don't know exactly what that number is, they have
7:27 pm
a pretty solitary profession to begin with. and so to pretend that the, and that it's the vaccine, mandy that are going to save the supply chain as opposed to actually cripple it. it's intellectual dishonesty if not overt dishonesty because even if you're double vaccinated and you get sick because you could still contract the virus, we know that you still have to isolate, even if you're double vaccinated as a trucker and become exposed, you still have to isolate lift the measures protect the vulnerable and let the healthy live a free and productive life, and maintain the very infrastructure that we need to deal with any crisis. not even this one. and just a quick reminder, the world health organization says covert 19 vaccines are a vital tool in the fights and the global pandemic. well, that says you're buying gold dates with all the latest from around the world. feel free to head over to r t dot com for more stories in depth analysis. my name's peter scott, and i'll be back again at the top of the hour. mm.
7:28 pm
mm. bring you the very latest every out the day. this is all now snow from everyone here with there may or may, we should all be may or may, we should all be angry because of what's going on, right. can't understand united states history and the role that slavery
7:29 pm
play was already a very formal institution. by the time united states became a nation, it actually find the nation, the rise of capitalism clearly on the backs of slate and the slave down. if you had investigated lynchings to any great extent, you can't believe that the country and country still stands in brick. i'm from the south. everybody know, know what they're saying. to some extent, i would argue that we're still fighting the civil war and the south is winning. join me every 1st 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. ah,
7:30 pm
ah. hello in welcome to cross talk. we're all things considered on peter labelle. it was not a showdown, but rather an exercise in placing markers, the russia, u. s talks in geneva settled basically nothing. however, the biden administration can no longer say it does not understand russia's position on pan european security. the ball is in washington's court. ah, discuss these issues and more. i'm joined by my guess, glen deason, and also he is a professor at the university of southeastern norway as well as author of the book great power.
