12:30 am
just any time you want and i always appreciate it. let's start off with patrick and plymouth, and i ended my introduction by saying it looks like washington in london are more keen on some kind of confrontation with russia. over the, the point of view, crane and forest johnson is going to swoop into europe and, you know, has a great diplomatic plan that he's a banding about, is he just trying to avoid investigations into a lot of bad parties, or does he really actually have an idea, and then i will, we'll talk a little bit about bad phone calls, patrick, get your take on this pitch fever that we're hearing the boys johnson was absent without leave on this issue for weeks with so called party gates. meanwhile, the sort of the war effort in the u. k. press and through all the various ministers was going on under the surface. so it was a very bizarre situation to say the least. they're sort of late to the party and politically anyway, the u. k. but they're very active, of course, via nato,
12:31 am
behind the scenes. so, look at the bottom line here is, this is one of the biggest ever sort of virtual build ups to war in history. i mean, this is a propaganda operation. the likes, which has never been undertaken in modern times. and we've seen various types of propaganda with the war on terror, but not with sort of a conventional war warfare or with this sort of, you know, made 2 major powers going out to this level. so this is like new territory. so the question is, what is the objective here for the west and there's a number of a major pieces on the table. obviously there's geopolitically, you know, the u. s. is wanting to renegotiate just about every sort of major agreement. that's left over from the cold war era, from various missile agreements that is backed out of, but also sort of defensive arrangements. reciprocal arrangements that were set up by the cold war. russia is very much wanting to abide by those treaties. again,
12:32 am
we always recognize in the last 3 years, at russia's acting as a normative power. they're very predictable. the u. s. is acting like an irrational state actor nato is just taken on a completely different take their become an ideological organization. now, you know, they're no longer a defense, they're much more than just a defense alliance. it's an ideological, let's spread freedom and democracy. this is the new mission of nato. so this is a total break. so it's understandable why russia can't negotiate it with these, these parties because it's very difficult to know where they're coming from, especially the united states. but we can go into that in a bit. or in mentoring, we'll talk about bad telephone calls. it looks like the president of ukraine zalinski kind of dropped the ball. he's not playing his role in the script here. and as i pointed out of my introduction, you know, you have, you know,
12:33 am
western countries, you know, like united states like the u. k. pulling out their dependence, you know, remember the seeds and all that. and then he actually told the truth, at least for as a short time, he did said, you know, what's all this panic about? i'm here i am president. i'd see what's going on. this is an over reaction, and paraphrasing of course, is in trouble. i mean, you don't, you don't tell the president of the united states, your patron, that he's wrong. you don't say that to the u. k. another one of your friends, i would think he's on very, very soft ground right now. your take on what's going on between the u. s. and can you bring will you know, as they say, you become responsible for forever, for whoever you've tamed. so i think the use of lensky is, is in, and in generally the, this might on revolution in ukraine has been a poster child for, for democracy. whatever a u. s. was thinking of back in 2014 when they were supporting their qu.
12:34 am
but i think what's interesting, the lensky is becoming a dark cardinal for american domestic politics. as you know, president trump was eating each one over the telephone conversation with him. president biden was already in trouble over his some dealing scene ukraine. and then in the last, he was still in office. now the republicans are threatening to impeach president biden when and if they take over the congress in november, or 70 or so, you know, even though i saw name tag going around, does monica lensky as he's become in kind of a big, big pain in the neck? for or in the u. s. domestic. but in seriousness, i think the situation is very bizarre indeed. because for the what prompted zelinski to talk in public initially was of the i don't know whether it was asleep
12:35 am
of the tongue or button me spoke. we're going to spill the beans on the quote called mitre incursion, a brushing to ukraine, that what the administration biden said would go and fight over. that in itself was quite an interesting remark. but the lensky initially was talking about there are no minor incursions. there's on the big invasions that we have to care about, and then, you know, biden kind of turns the tables. this will actually, i am talking about the big invasion and the goals. what are you talking about? we don't really see an invasion come. so i do think it's did that the situation is kind of a self inflicted panic and won't, but we should have perhaps in common because this narrative sun, what may come next and what type of invasion may come have been, you know, going round from different angles and if it's easy for the 2 presidents and the vitamins lensky to kind of sleep on their own banana. yeah, it's interesting,
12:36 am
patrick, i mean, who would have thought a comic from a said common crane with a be in the cross hairs of 2 precedents when telephone calls it. we went from, you know, it was a perfect telephone call to. it was a bad telephone call. zelinski patrick, um it over the last few months i can remember when um it was going to have a meeting with the americans and he was on twitter. we need to be in nato now. meet on and now he's beginning to realize the cost of getting in the nato is his head. okay. and a good and maybe chunks of his country. i mean, he's the hall guy and all this. i think he's begun to finally realize it. okay. we don't know what kind of control he has over as intelligence agencies or the military. patrick, your answer survey lover of illustrated a good point to this to this effect in his response. to anthony blank and white paper and nato's white paper. it's good that they're passing papers around by the way, right now that's better rather not to be public missiles and bombs. but again,
12:37 am
i said, look, you can't, you can't guarantee that the ukrainian military is a unified organization. in other words, there are paramilitary units, or you know, far right paramilitary units, which aren't under the direct control all the time of one single unified apparatus . so if you look at, when you ramp up tensions and you have a potential for either a false flag or an image, 17 style event or the gulf of tonkin type, a miscommunication that might be intentional, in fact. but anyway, that aside, it's very dangerous. a situation where you're heightening tensions like this and u. s. is definitely putting pressure on ukrainian government on zalinski. many people will say that the ukraine government is captured already by the western sphere of influence by the united states. in this interesting, when you listen to tony blinking and he's very shaky by the way, very nervous. when you listen to his speech is press conference or the night he's
12:38 am
really only concerned with 2 things. one of them is a stockpile or stocks of weapons. the u. s. is unloading all of their old last year's clothes out stock on the ukraine, and then stockpiles of energy or energy energy supplies. and it's funny that these threatening the rest is saying, rushes threatening europe with the weaponized. if russia weaponized is it gas, and l have a dramatic effect on the european consumer and so forth, there's nobody doing more to shut down and it's trained to pipeline than the united states and britain. ok. so, i mean, you can't take us seriously in diplomacy when they're making 2 different statements . basically the same speech, i mean, it's totally inconsistent, like the level of duplicity is just off the charts. so it's, i can see it being very frustrating for a survey lever off russian diplomatic team to have any kind of meaningful negotiations or to, to know that you're going into negotiations. and the other parties already
12:39 am
basically choosing of acting in bad faith before you even come to the table. so basically this diplomacy is finished at that point and what you have is this kind of media award this bizarre parallel universe. it's been constructed by the u. s. media they've brought on the tele click go now in the u. s. media doing the rounds, the mayor of kiev, and they're saying, fatality, are you going to physically stand up and fight those russians when they come to sac? yeah, i mean, the idea that russia is going to march in sac, he is just fantasy, but this is what passes for like legitimate political discourse. right now in the united states. i mean, is really in a crazy situation. it's, it's come to right now. you know, it was about to think about that week 10 days ago that the russians maybe planning some kind of who in change of government. yeah. but you know, if you really think about it, i mean, maybe that's exactly what the u. s. department in the,
12:40 am
in the brits are thinking themselves because he did it in 2014. they might do it again and then blame someone else. i mean, i wouldn't let it pass. these people go ahead man. well obviously it's hard to to think rationally. when you have this irrational argument on the other side, i think what's courtney perhaps east of the likely next round of talks in russia to continue this talks is going to evolve around something that foreign minister elaborate mentioned in again response to white papers. when you know, basically the state department said that they're not going to discuss the future of need to when your grades potential accession tinita, which everyone knows is not going to happen at least anytime soon. and the response is suggested that russia is going to spin this issue around the concept of quote
12:41 am
unquote, undivided security in europe and lateral who is referring to the 2 important papers that i think the rational part is going to put on the table. that is a stumble declaration of 999 enough on a declaration of 2010 that endorsed this concept. if i divided security and the know security of any country in europe could be achieved via security of other states. and i think that that is the substantial conversation and it's better for all the parties to, to go to talk about the i can jump in there. i mean, this is something that the russians have brought up before. when nelson bergmann general secretary, i just want address it. i mean, this is again, one of the most frustrating things here is that the russians presented to papers. essentially, what would become treaties blinking just that won't react to ok, the self and burns as if, you know, the, the whole universe revolves around nato, is rules, which is so bizarre. i mean, i'm not in naked. so why should i care about its rules?
12:42 am
you're right, and this is a good point. nato is open door policy that seen as sacrosanct. this is basically become akin to in terms of the west and nato members. this is equal to internet, no law in their eyes, but they all have a heart breaking up about our break will continue our discussion on some real estate, r t o n a mm hm. to bring you the very latest every out the day. this is all now snow from everyone here
12:43 am
with join me every posted on the alex salmon. sure. i'll be speaking to guess with the world of politics. sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm kaiser, financial survival guy. when customers go buy, you reduce the way then l reduce a lower ah, that's undercutting that was good for food, market it back to the global economy. ah, welcome out. across that were all things are consider 9, peter labelle. this is the home addition to remind you were discussing some real news. ah
12:44 am
okay, let's go back to patrick and plymouth. we had to go to a short break there. go ahead and please spend finish up. he thought, no, this, this idea that a nato policy open door policy in this case is somehow sort of equal in sort of weight to international law. this is the argument that's being put forward by nato countries. so how did this happen? this has been sort of drifted out gradually over the last few years. you can see it in the rhetoric is becoming more political, more ideology. yonce dalton burgers is becoming sort of more of a political, a figure than sorta director general of any military alliance of nato's desperate for relevance in the world. and this is one of the reasons why this crisis is being ramped up. i believe there's also an economic piece on the back end of that. of course, that's the arm sales. it's the military, industrial market. ok. but beyond that, they're also very scared. you know, they're very close. they know that they're losing or have lost the don bass. ok,
12:45 am
creamy has gone. everybody knows that john mearsheimer said that in 2014, nobody got the memo in washington for sure. but the dumbass is gone. so this is a very difficult and they want revenge for crimea. okay. they're going to keep sanctions on. they're gonna sabotaged the normandy format and try to make sure that minks accords now or never realized, this is also a major objective of the west. so they're really a difficult situation. and again, it's a, it's a situation that they're making. now that the my don qu mostly peaceful protesters and in 2014 that and also the denial of history. the fact that the west has always been interested in destabilizing or grooming a certain fractions in western ukraine. and this region, since the end of the 2nd world war, you'll never hear any of these 2 points. the qu, in 2014 and the history of the region. you'll never hear this address in context ever by any us media politician or think tank pundents re. okay, and this is,
12:46 am
this is the reason why there's a major disconnect here in terms of discussions and diplomacy. nancy went to eat with, haven't brought up the dumbass. right. i think this is where it's really key to it all because i think them if there are thinking people in care in washington in london, they know that the dumbass is lost. i mean, it can stay inside ukraine's borders, but it will have never had cable never have direct control over it again. i mean, the camp government, you know, is killed 14000 people there. i mean, i wouldn't trust them governing the dumbass again when see, that's the key to it all. is it somehow get a provocation for the russians to do some kind of committee action regarding dumbass, they care regime already knows it's gone. that's how you look at the men, that's the trap and we've been attacked. we've been attacked. ok. and then you know, the dumbasses of pros and cons. it has a different status. and then the same thing,
12:47 am
you know, some kind of skirmish around my, me and i ended up in defeat and then they say, well, ok, our reward now is to get it into nature. because we, we, we had to fight off and aggressor, we couldn't, we were too small. we do, in fact, that we didn't have enough allied support. and then there are candidates, he becomes a lot more viable. does that make any sense? the max, it does make a lot of sense to me and i think in that context the overflowing of ukraine with weapons and some of the private military contractors from the west is very worrisome in this respect, the assessments that we in moscow here from, from, from the united states are that, you know, since there are no security guarantees to nita would then kind of formal nato framework we, the americans in the british and others have to show some support to the ukrainians are doing so by supply of weapons. and then things like this,
12:48 am
i think we're also in other problem is that we're still are not secure from the what i would call the soft gosh, really syndrome. you know, it may not necessarily come from zalinski can self, but as, as patrick and many other analissa pointed out already that there are tons of actors, destructive accuracy, ukraine, and the laboratory alluded to that are interesting to repeat when all these talk over the, over the over done by show, between russia in the us and others, and would be happy to use the weapons that are supply to them to a stage of provocation. and, you know, create a pretext. and it causes bella for the, you know, rushing response and things i guess. and that will then escalade to an unintended war that no party really seems to be wishing for. because there are seriously no, no consequences, no consequences that you can predict at this point. but i think we've also seen the
12:49 am
past that wester states while having the a do not have a b, as for it was, it comes on the brain policy. really interesting, patrick. a, not so long but forgotten. base reappeared in the british press is shameka. he's back or you know, came back from his trip from over the new years, poland in turkey, and the right back there was a rest more and for him he showed up duly at the prosecutor's office. and then apparently from what i'm told is that the western embassies and camps, but you know, let them out. i mean, pressure was the bond, this is what i'm told here. and all of a sudden, you know, has been, is, gets big headlines. i mean, again, you know, they the suck ashby, we're back. i wouldn't want to be mr. zalinski right now, because they're finding another 2nd. because remember what a shank. i tapped the don balance. that's the guy they wanted. yeah,
12:50 am
that's why she didn't want. that's what money wants and someone will do it. ok, the ukraine has to get slaughtered, but you know, that's the whole point isn't about ukraine. ok. what is that once he might do it again? lensky, i think it's suddenly realized he is. he is the sacrificial lamb. and all this and i think that's why i reached out to the press. sure, sure. i mean, the biggest fear of, of the west obviously is, is bilateral talks and in the negotiation between kevin, moscow, they cut out the middleman as it were, you. what else would you expect with 2 neighbors? so this is why the trying to basically inflate this as a sort of international crisis in imminent war and imminent invasion by the russians to make it more of an international for could very easily be di fears. but that's not so simple as we know that the hand of the united states is so far into ukraine right now. and it has been for the last 7 years that i think it's almost inescapable that level of pressure and influence that ever ukrainian leader is
12:51 am
going to basically ex experience. it's very difficult situation to decouple the west from, from ukraine on all those different levels. zalinski has an opportunity to do some great things in the situation and for his country and for the region, whether he actually takes that opportunity or not to take a very brave leader to do that. and especially in the, in politics like himself. but back to the original point, the, to my colleagues made maxim is that, you know, the false flag aspect is dangerous, but in the west it will only take is it could be a cyber false flag is a really ramping up the cyber threat. so what i think would be easy risk free escapade which the west loves risk free escapades, especially the u. s. in britain is to have some sort of a cyber incident, blame it on russia, and then throw down the hardest sanctions that you've ever seen. and basically
12:52 am
declare this as ritual war, but as love rob said, if they're going to lay down a new raft of sanctions like this, that will be the equivalent from moscow's position of basically a break in diplomatic relations. that serious dots are prelude to actual war, or it puts you into a hard cold war setting and nobody wants that to happen. but it seems like that's the direction things are being pushed. so we'll see. yeah, i mean, let's say, i mean i have to agree with tactic. i mean essentially there is, there's 2 tracks here. and you train is turned into a wonderful headache that the russians have been generated by western united states and the u. k. and just constantly boiling, having the grain boiling, or plan being, it wasn't get to a certain point. they just wanted to know russia out of europe altogether. and that's why they're thinking about this all energy situation, because that's, that's the weak link and all this week, there are reports that, you know,
12:53 am
the u. k. in the, in the u. s. are, are one to cobble of energy assets. natural gas primarily from like tar in other places like completely remake the energy map of europe, which should be very, very costly. probably wouldn't work. ok. i mean, this is something that is very, very dangerous because, you know, germany is the power house of europe and what the german economy is and good, and its export oriented. an export oriented countries need a lot of energy. again, you know, the 2 biggest losers and this is increase in germany. go ahead. well, i think exactly. that's the reason why the buyer ministration is now being mad at the germans and on the way the british are also getting that at germany. how would behave, and i think for the 2nd time in the last year ever since the germans stood up for the north stream to a pipeline. this is the 2nd time they're trying to demonstrate that they actually
12:54 am
do hear a little bit at least about their own strategic sovereignty in the decision making . and are perhaps not willing to jump into this crisis without 1st seeing what russia up to are not willing to flood ukraine with weapons. and we have to give it to the credits of germany. the been very careful, unlike many other nations in the west about providing weapons to armed conflict and the, the, the have to, i think a more kind of cautious waiting line here to see what happens next before you know, running before the train. and we can sanctions on russia and shutting down the street, and that is not perhaps the position that the biden ministration expected. they thought, you know, the germany would be great ally in this crisis and would actually take on responsibility for, you know, pioneering the toughest response to russia and will hopefully, you know, the germany here may, may or all of
12:55 am
a sudden then perhaps to the many surprise too many here in moscow be more and more cautious than the past. we'll see if they're able to stood up to the all that pressure that's coming from from washington now, and continue on the track. and the paintings are also getting mad at germany for not as they think are doing enough before to, to, to jump to that to support. you know, i'm not doing enough to help destroy their country. i, this is really weird. patrick, you have 30 seconds left here. i think ultimately this is this gambit. denito is, i'm playing out, is going to, it's good. it is a part of the demise of nato, which i would regret, obviously. but also, the effort to separate right to, from europe will end up in my opinion, isolating europe, go ahead. 20 seconds to you know, and the important point is germany is, is as big a target is anything in this whole geopolitical exercise, pulling germany away from russia, making sure germany doesn't face eastward, not only that,
12:56 am
but for the belt and road project as well. germany is fit to service both the east and the west. patrick patrick, again, the cold war mentality is nowhere to west. keep the russians out, the germans down the americans and that's what it is still in. when i gentlemen, that's all the time we have what i think my guess and limit and here in moscow and bank are be worth watching here. are the see an ex family member? ah ah ah ah, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safe? isolation, community? are you going the right way?
12:57 am
where are you being with what is true? what is faith? in the world corrupted, you need to descend ah, to join us in the depths will remain in the shallows. ah, it's an open secret. the private military companies have been playing a role in arm conflicts, world wide. u. s. government doesn't track the number of contractors it uses in places iraq or afghanistan, united states army and the military and general is so reliance on a private sector. i would call that dependency, but we don't know who's the on the ground presence of these companies overseas. we just don't out west and private military companies can in their turn use so cool
12:58 am
subcontractors from countries with trouble pass. the chances are quite good that they had also been charles soldiers. i says, i was a child as well as my job professional growth is, is with the whole 141. if i said that looked with no loan, if you want the choice to be merciless killing machines, now they fight and die in other people's was people carol, lot one or a dead soldier or dead marine shows up in this country. and then we start asking yourself, why did they die? why do, what would they fighting for? nobody bothers down to about that contractors, in fact, either financial survival guide. when customers go buy, you reduce the right. now well, reduce a lower ah,
12:59 am
that's under cutting, but what's good for food market? it's not good for the global economy. you're chatting with them from dosher regime can hi sharon, which was wrong with me. right? yeah. like with she them hold on. well, i mean kelly recoding cold and i renewed my for the night. you're sure that 1000th of long didn't get to i learned that in for she gave us times to i must be happy. i could come out of fact, not really, not that i'm looking for a family with unique here protection for human, with the money that i can let. let
1:00 am
miss with ah ed lighting this. our fleeing from anger, the canadian prime minister, reportedly brushed to an evacuation site, does more than $10000.00 truckers protest against vaccine mandates. outside parliament. we hear from one of the activists who's been in the heart of the demonstration in author, bob, we've never seen anything like this before. these are ordinary did 80 and birthday . we fired a bit, a government telling us how we are close to live our lives. that the british prime minister consider sending more troops to nato one of the same time looking for talks with the russian leader critics played. he's just trying to divert attention from the deepening party gauge scandal at home.
