ah ah ah, breaking you are not see russia received written replies both from the u. s. and nato, to moscow's request. the security guarantees amid phase of a conflict in ukraine, in all the news countries across your keys there cove restrictions, despite near record high infection rate, while health officials get mixed signals on the threads of the only constraint. also ahead i would prefer to be la la la, will he now with british prime minister boys johnson's political life seemingly handled by a thread with the government inquiring to down the street. low down violation is expected to be released any day now. a separate police problem is also in the way
7:01 pm
with from moscow to the world, you're watching r t international, almost being quite a news day. my name is peter scott. it is great to have you with us and we start with some braking use. the u. s. a nate, so have given the written responses to russia to request the security guarantees. the american ambassador handed over the documents harry moscow on wednesday evening . but so far, the exact contents haven't been disclosed enough for a quick reminder of russia's demands. they include ukraine in georgia, not being offered nato membership, scaling back the alliances forces near russia's border on the removal of u. s. nuclear weapons from europe. well, earlier my colleague unit o'neill spoke with some of our team correspondence across the world about that development. well, antony blank in the us, secretary of state,
7:02 pm
talked about how a document had been prepared and delivered to russian officials and they were choosing to not make that document public at this time. but this document does address russia's security concerns. the document won't be public. however, anthony blank did described by the united states has provided javelin missiles, ammunition, defensive security systems, helicopters, and other weaponry to ukraine and how the united states has authorized other nato countries such as stoney had to do the same thing. there were threats of more sanctions on russia and export controls putting, put on russia in a way to hurt their economy and access to certain items. now what's interesting was, while anthony lincoln's tone was rather calm. and he seemed to emphasize that they wanted a diplomatic and negotiated solution to the issue. it seemed like the press and the reporters were asking him questions, were anxious to demand that he go into greater conflict and there'd be bigger
7:03 pm
tension. this is some of the interactions that went on between anti blanket and the u. s. mainstream media. just finding time to later the place to invade ukraine, making you jump through hoops like and delivering written responses to questions that you vance at time and time again. in the past, the meanwhile, that the stabilizing ukraine from within the economy's crumbling, you're spending hundreds of millions of dollars showing them up. what point do you stop playing rushes game and take preemptive action? now? we can walk and chew gum at the same time, and that's very much what we've been doing. so we've been clear to russia that there are 2 paths, diplomatic one, but also a path of defense and deterrence. and if russia chooses aggression a path that will lead to massive consequences. now antony blank and also talked about the need to export more energy to europe and make countries throughout europe less dependent on russia for natural gas,
7:04 pm
sir. so that's all we heard from anti blank, and it seemed like he was emphasizing the willingness to negotiate and resolve this . so without further attention, the mainstream media and the press in the room seemed to have different ideas. well, let's say it turned to morocco as the ever senior correspondent now in the studio with me, marat's in terms of the russian demands. it's not something i was asked to day or yesterday. they've been there for quite a long time. what kind of responses given and what are the a, some of the main ones? well, they had been there for the better part of a decade. it's just recently that marcia has said that patients either has run out the now they are making demands because they, they are being heard rushes, security concerns, a multitude of them judge for yourself. for example, 20 years ago, russia had only one, a neighbor that was a member of nato. now it's 5 with you create and ga, potentially ascending in the future there essentially to, to nato. that would be 7,
7:05 pm
almost half of russia's neighbors would be members of nato. and what that means, this is russia's concern, is that native infrastructure that is measles bases rockets would move closer and closer to russia. potentially hypersonic nissan, american hypersonic missiles, big station in ukraine, which is just a few minutes flood time for moscow, which for russia is completely unacceptable. that is where they draw the of the red line. and they said all these, all these proposals to the united states and, and today. so we're now hearing a reaction from russian officials who have seen this document at ease, as was said, still confidential. the americans have asked the russian sod, nato shoe not a share. the documents their response with the press. but the reaction that we have heard so far is, is disappointed on russian official has said that this is inadequate,
7:06 pm
but the united states responded with it cannot be accepted. another russian official has said that they did not address a single russian security concern. so they said a whole list of other themes and topics and proposals, refusing to, to answer single russia to address a single russia concert. we have heard the previous weeks, most of russia's proposals being shot down in public by there is a members who officials from, from native, from the united states, from europe. that is, that nato won't promise not to expand further to woods towards russia that it won't promise, nor to station troops closer and closer to russia. that it, it will, you know, it refuses any negotiations. a compromise over potential nato expansion, which for russia is, as was said today, simply an acceptable, but it just doesn't want that to be done in whispers from the u. s. they want legally binding guarantees because the said they're sick of being told one thing
7:07 pm
and then nothing happening mother, this is the thing the, the that we talked about earlier. that if you listen to the judge by the journalists at anthony blinking spreads conference, you, you honestly get the feeling that it's the journalists who want a war, lord, right, more than russia, the united states. and you could put together. i mean, you had one of the, one of the questions, it was why you bothering with negotiations and documents with, with rush a wasting thought as this is from a journalist. another question was, why, why are you sending hell, it's wise germany sending helmets instead of more missiles, aside from the thousands of missiles and anti air weapons that have been sent to you. creative. as the united states, boosting $283.00 tons, tons of ammunition and various rockets and military supplies says of russia's consent so far, etc. haven't been heard or are being entirely ignored on camera. thanks very much
7:08 pm
for an iraq sd of taken us through at russia's demands and the response to them. let's say i get some of the nato perspective now in the implications for europe. we can cross to our europe, corresponded peter, i believe you've been listening into the nato. zachary generals briefing a lot more. besides air ticket through developments on the continent. yen stultz and berg speaking in brussels. he said things were at a critical moment when it came to the ongoing situation regarding the tensions between russia and nato over ukraine. and he started off by talking about russian troops in the western part of russia. he also talked about her a significant buildup of troops in bel roofs, including fighter jets there were heading in that direction. however, he then switched tack and moved on to talk about potential areas in which there
7:09 pm
could be future cooperation, particularly when we're talking in the areas of dialogue in the ways that nato and russia can communicate better with one another. let me outline the 3 main areas where we see room for progress. we should re establish our respective offices in moscow and in brussels, which will also make full use our existing military to military charles or communications. or look also into setting up a civilian hotline for emergency use. make no bones about it. there isn't going to be great news for russia when it comes to the written and written reply to moscow security proposals from nato against dalton. burke said the alliance won't compromise on their path to joy and policy, which is the open door policy, which is basically nato expansion. as russia see that expansion towards it's a,
7:10 pm
it's borders, it's territory so that those offers do remain open to anybody that would like to join nato. but what you insult and burke did say, is that not only would there be dead doors open for talks that though in terms of m a cute lines of communication, but also there would be air doors open for meetings, for summits that could be taking place. so the idea that they could potentially be some talks about not so much signing new treaties, but revamping in reinvigorating already existing treaties. that's what yan salton berg was talking about, particularly when it comes to the ideas of an basically letting the other side know when there's going to be military drills. this was something he was very keen to stress. it hasn't just been nato that we've been hearing about though all narr on wednesday coming out of europe. there's also being quite an important norman defore ab normandy format, meeting taking place in paris that wrapped up in
7:11 pm
a normal format, of course, is there representatives of russia, ukraine, france, and germany. this meeting taking place at the, the level of, of diplomatic advisor. it was an a well 1st meeting of this kind since 2019, so was quite as a move anyway, to see this or might re kindled what we've heard, what we understand from the russian side that they've put out a message so far is that we will see another one of these meetings taking place this time where i'm speaking to you from in berlin, in around 2 weeks time. so that could be taken as the sign that the diplomatic approach is certainly still the, the main goal leave with the approach front and center. the idea that there would be further talks on that norman, the format that would follow on from what we heard from emanuel mack on air, the french president and all i've shown the german chancellor. they were here in berlin last night, getting that franco german alliance in order before that. and that normandy for
7:12 pm
that meeting took place in paris. the next all of those. nobody format meetings taking place here in berlin. the what they were saying was, dialogue must prevail and manual micron say he would never give up on dialogue when it came to this particular issue. so diplomacy looking like it is winning out at the moment. however, it doesn't seem like russia is going to get the answers. it was looking for either from the united states, although we don't know that. or certainly, it seems from what you install, tim berg had to say coming out of brussels from nato. meanwhile, us politicians are raising the panic level over ukraine. republican congressman said bert has written to the secretary of state saying, and i quotes you now, given the fight to the biden administration stranded an unknown number of americans in afghanistan. i write to you with extreme concern for the fates of american citizens in ukraine. thus, after whitehouse press secretary gen saki rural does an american evacuation from
7:13 pm
the country. and the idea has been widely ridiculed on late night shows. no organized evacuation is plan. why is that because of the last, when you organized, oh, we love to help out. we're good. just going to go on expedia. thank you. and while nato rum, soap is military activity with wargames underway in the mediterranean rushes, also boosting is c defenses. more than 20 warships have just set out from bushes southern ports for exercises in the black sea. there are also large scale russian navy jewels taking place in the barren c. in the arctic there involving 30 ships and 12000 personnel we spoke with carrying. can i sal austria's former foreign minister? she's inspired by a prominent us diplomats, who said back in the 90s, it would be a mistake to enlarge nato's presence in the east. i don't believe that the ukraine
7:14 pm
5 is to only and number one priority 5 from the u. s. went to point, i mean, now we all know what they really care about what they have already about. it's the situation in their cells. chinese see it's taiwan. it's china, it's technological edge. so these are to really, is just for them and not so much about ukraine joining are not china. nate, with this has been on the agenda ever since 2008. and nobody was really enthusiastic about it. and let me refer to a very distinguished to us diplomats will diet some time ago, george cannon. he was actually the one who had coined the containment of cold war policies in the late martin forties. and the church cannon was still alive in early 19 ninety's, when there were other force measures for enlarging the nature eastward. and he said then very clearly that this is a big arrow. don't do it. i think it was a night, a night, 56, that he said that and that that statement by canon should,
7:15 pm
should be studied, should be implemented still ahead on the program. several european countries are lifting their cobra to restrictions, despite near record case numbers. that story more coming up shortly. ah, up until now for the past couple of decades. the solution was, i was print more money, but now that the money printing is causing a real inflation and exacerbating all the problems, that solution is only going to make the problem worse. but of course that's what they'll do. that's what the lease will do. that's what they plan to do. any inconvenience that falls them, they will answer what we need to print more money for it. more money and the food will get in the shorter, so my hand workers will disappear and the situation get worse and worse because it
7:16 pm
does. no money printing never worked. ah ah . mm ah, welcome by to the program, the british prime ministers on the ropes with an inquiry into so called parts a gate locked down violations about to be released. boys johnson faced the fury of
7:17 pm
m. p. 's and a common showdown earlier with kohls for his immediate resignation. i would prefer to be led by law than ally. i will. he now has a legally proving parliament, misleading the house. decorating with dodgy cash part to him while the public suffer. every moment he stays, his dragging over the agony for families who reminded of the sacrifices they made when will the prime minister top horn and go every day, the prime minister latches from scandal to scandal. and meanwhile, his government has written a full point. 3000000000 pounds to fraudsters instead of writing of loans, to food stamps. why? why the prime minister write his resignation to the queen? well, it was indeed a very heated prime minister's questions this afternoon. as the primary subarus johnson clings on, refusing to resign, it comes as we still are waiting to very much long awaited su,
7:18 pm
gray investigation report. it's still yet to be published as the weight gets longer and longer though many people have taken to social media saying the anticipation is more exciting than waiting for christmas. even though many of these twitter uses are saying to, we really need a report to confound the parents. johnson and his colleagues were breaking the laura at the height of the pandemic. meanwhile, the leader of the opposition, he's calling on barnes johnson to go saying that the prime minister life twice misleading parliament about these parties. on the 1st of december, the promised to told this house in relation to paul kitchen lockdown. all guidance was followed completely in number 10. on the 8th of december, the prime minister told this house i have been repeatedly assured since these allegations emerge, the walls no party. so since acknowledges the minister of quote applies to him, william hours on a speaker,
7:19 pm
at least 16 alleged gatherings in downing street parties have imagined come to light report is expected to make conclusions on at least some of them. now what we do know is that includes the 20th of may 2020, where by allegedly a 100 people were invited to the downing street party to make the most out of the wonderful lovely weather and also bring your own booze. in april of 2021, apparently 2 parties were held on the very same night where one attendee was even sent to the nearby shops at top up on the food stamp. she returned with it in a suit case. now, quite crucially, that party i was on the night before prince phillips funeral, and since then, downing street has apologized directly to the queen. now more recently an allegation comes with birds johnson and his birthday party on june. the 19th, apparently that was fair to people endorse where the prime minister was present with some cake and staff saying, happy birthday. now,
7:20 pm
many people say the prime minister has indeed been caught red handed with all of this, but boris johnson has repeatedly said that he didn't know he was breaking any of the rules while some of bars johnson support to says some of these parties. and indeed, the birthday party was not pre meditative people came and presented him to the cake on his birthday. the saying happy birthday was there for about 10 minutes. it was not a pre meditated organized party in lessons. he was innocent ambush military as well as we still await the su gray investigation and have finding some people do say that it will confirm at least some breaches. in fact, summer saying there must be enough evidence to suggest at least an element of criminality. considering the metropolitan police have now launched an investigation . interestingly though, when it comes to the su gray findings, they will be sent directly to the prime minister. and then it will be up to him to make a statement to the house of commons. so some people are saying, will we see the full findings will that be made public, or will the prime minister choose to redact some of that information?
7:21 pm
what we do know though, is once that report lands on forest johnson's table, he'll have just a few hours before he has to make it publicly known and release it. and as every minute goes by now, the calls for him to resign him for him to go. i'm guessing louder and louder in the news with the german government debating whether or not to introduce a co read vaccine. monday for over 8 scenes, protesters have been running in berlin against the proposals. there was a big police presence on the streets, and several demonstrators were reportedly detained. the bulk of the action was at the bunder start where lawmakers were debating the controversial legislation. the mandate has been a bone of contention between politicians with the opposition party saying a sweeping monday would be overkill. because the only con variance is milder. we heard from some of those attending the rally. i don't like it very much. the moment
7:22 pm
you you name it mandatory. yeah. it's mandatory to everybody has to have the same ride. this is really weird that we can't be like 6 months, at least an immune scene as a new we're critical about the system about the way they treat us. the way they put us into positions, i don't trust the narrative. i am totally against a mandatory vaccination. meanwhile, some countries across europe that she lifting their restrictions and as despite near record case numbers, and there's plenty of confusion over the plans with the w. h. o europe treat chief saying the army constrain could. so the end game for the pandemic, while other officials point to heightened risks, r t shar, to ben's get reports from paris. well, a year ago, people were living in fear of cosy, but here we are today. and despite there are recorded new numbers of cases in europe, it seems that the concerns of european governments are melting away. take fonts,
7:23 pm
for example, where a year ago, 20000 cases a day precipitated a 3rd national lock down 500000 cases a day at the moment. and what does the government do to respond to that? well, it's easing the restrictions from next week that comes at the time when there is still intense pressure on hospital staff and capacity. and despite that, those restrictions will start easing form that next week it's pretty mind boggling . but france isn't the only country doing that. austria to pulling suit in announcing on wednesday the from next week, unvaccinated to be under their own specific type of walk down will be able to go back out the streets really, although some was able to access to west above because they are unvaccinated. and there is this question about whether this is a move or we'll see these types of what people described as being de kooning restrictions, whether government just simply giving into this. there is now ready of political
7:24 pm
who sees what you're saying restrictions now it's too much and in fact, the restrictions are impossible, pretty much for the police to monitor some all to say the restrictions are easing as a result of vaccination levels being quite high course you of the average now is it's 70 percent, and there are also restrictions easing in denmark and in england in the u. k. but all of this comes amidst a warning from the world health organization that this pandemic is far from over the idea. it said this narrative, this is now a mile disease is simply wrong. the w h o saying that actually health services are still inundated in cases and you remains the at the center of the pan demik. so is the light at the end of the turn. what we've been here before with eating restrictions and then been back to square one. but the reality is it does
7:25 pm
seem, is it coding 19? now he's going to linger like a bad smell and a bad smell. we're simply going to have to get used to and from viruses to vaccines . argentina has agreed to share its dates on the russian sputnik, the cobra shot. as with the hell the world health organization thus raised hopes that the vote team could gain emergency approval from the debris, joe, with a team of experts to, to visit russia next month. earlier in january, a russian italian study was released on sputnik ve. the researchers can go to the comparison with the find the shots and found the sputnik is significantly more effective against the army. kron strain where we spoke with hildebrand. it's all a professor of vaccines and immunotherapy, in the u. s. a. she thinks the results of the study looked promising. so i looked at the paper and the data are promising. what the paper shows, it says put nick b. yeah, antibodies that i used by this vaccine cross reg is our micron. there is
7:26 pm
a loss activity, but this is it that will hopefully provide protection. i found especially promising was the very last drop of the paper. there you, it shows that kinetics of the antibody response, and as the new is, our neighbor seems that for some quite rapidly. so after 6 months there are significantly lower levels of antibodies. then you have shortly after the explanation, my with these responses seems to be master state. i think we should also help developing countries to improve their own manual manufacturing capacity. do i think that i'm our innate mixing companies 5 done. i'm going to collaborate this for us just j j. i'm not sure what to do, but i would say, well, you're right up to date with all the latest world headlines. and of course,
7:27 pm
those developments in the ukraine crisis. my name is peter scotts and i'll be back again at the top of the hour. thank you for watching. ah, lines have been drawn and positions made clear. after 2 weeks of high level talks, russia and nato, we main poles apart on how to define pan european security moving forward. moscow is presented its vision in writing while washington falls back on our cape cold war cliche. there may or may, we should all be mayor. may, we should all be angry because i'm was more all right. can't understand united states history and the role that slavery play already a very formal institution at a time united states became a nation. it actually the find the nation,
7:28 pm
the rise of capitalism is clearly on the backs of flight. and it's laid down. if you had investigated lynching said a great extent. you can't believe that really in the country. and a 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 when i will show seemed wrong when i was just a to fill out the scene because of the answer to an engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground.
7:29 pm
a with, with the room, but the one bed the show you can't afford to miss on bread. your board and i major blevins in washington coming up. the federal reserve has announced his plan to raise raise and dial back on his balance sheet in the coming month. well, this guy with former congressman and noticed that critic, doctor von paul, and as it is shift force and global volatility continue to rise global market or reacting on wednesday. we'll bring you a full forecast of what to effect dad with 10 to driving on the border of ukraine. the usaa threatening to level thanks is against russia in the event of an invasion
