brussels urges the e.u. to come up with a unified response and you saw the astra zeneca job fair and public confidence in the shorts faltering. while your commute is going to ask since it has been shown there are people who have unfortunately died after getting vaccinated it would seem the risk is low in their best interest i think we don't know what to trust our view would be to the dark. germany reveals plans for talks with mosco to buy sputnik v. as long as the jobs approved by brussels. just hours to go till a soyuz rocket launches for the international space station and head of the 60th anniversary of human space travel we spoke exclusively to the head of the international astronautical federation. i personally saw observing the traditions
on the baikonur before their mission like planting a tree or leaving their signature on the door to their room many traditions live on for decades to celebrate your current memory. hello and welcome it's just turned 80 am here in moscow and you're watching r t international with me in the care. brussels to e.u. member states to come up with a unified response to the use of the astra zeneca job while governments all splits on whether and what restrictions should be imposed the e.u. health commissioner says confidence in the vaccine among the public could be full story artie shaw it depends if the story. concerns over a potential link between astra zeneca and red blood clots is exposing the latest
divisions within the e.u. after the books agency that evaluates and supervises medicinal products that may once again said the benefits of the vaccine weigh the risks but saying that blood clots should be listed as a rare side effect not although we're convinced and measures have been taken it's eerie in spain of joined ranks with germany deciding to limit the job to those who are over the age over 60 belgium has followed suit with province now only recommending astra zeneca for those over $55.00 but those differences a causing a headache for brussels it's worried that without a common policy towards astra zeneca trust in vaccinations could be eroded commissioner just as a member states to ask experts to work with hema to develop a coherent approach across the region through their guidance and analysis they
should just use the extreme important we want to avoid of course a vaccination however it may be that this ship has already sailed here in france there have been reports of people not turning up for they could be vaccination if it's astra zeneca and confusion over who should and who shouldn't have it is right . if it's confusing yes because to say that the laws change from one country to another while the product is the same we wonder on which study they are based those who had complications were rather young so they said let's stop it for the young but not for the old well i mean it's weird their management of the thing is not clear. for me there is a risk since it has been shown that there are people who have unfortunately died after getting vaccinated it is important to get out of this health crisis. therefore we have to weigh the benefit of the risks and the risk is low in their
best interest i think so they are never going to say that the risk is high and so that's really that doesn't surprise me confusing there is a bit of confusion we don't know what to trust so i feel a bit of the dark there is also a question to be a last about why certain countries are making unilateral decisions against the voice of the may yet certain that may be simple the head of germany's vaccine commission said the a.m.a. evaluates vaccines based on what's of benefit to all in the e.u. individual countries though can be more picky in germany we have a slightly different situation because we're not so dependent on the astra zeneca vaccine and we can postpone vaccines and thereby achieve the same effect but in the end we still have the risk of these serious side effects in a certain age group over in the u.k. a new restrictions on astra zeneca or even tighter than those that have been taken by the european neighbors the previously the u.k.
dismissed questions raised about the job now government committee is recommending that healthy people under 30 are provided with a different vaccine and those who are aged 18 to 29 years old should be offered an alternative covert night in fact seen in preference to the astra zeneca vaccine regulators are now would voicing that astra zeneca provide another update on possible side effects and while for some the idea that they have a toy any chance of developing a fatal blood clot may be too much others say that they will gladly take the risk in a bid to put an end to the current nightmare so all of the all see paris germany's health minister has announced negotiations to buy the sputnik the shock from russia was the vaccine has the approval yen spawn expects deliveries as soon as possible let's go live to our correspondent peter all of us for the details now peter good
morning to you how much of a breakthrough is this. well what we are seeing is the early stages of talks between germany and the russian direct investment fund for the for berlin buying doses of the sputnik the vaccine these talks were confirmed by health minister yen spahn on thursday. the e.u. has said that the sputnik vaccine will not be part of the joint procurement programme for vaccines that system this all for $11.00 for all system of the e.u. commission buys in vaccines and then distributes them so well this is seen is germany take an independent routes in which they're looking to you to buy the sputnik vaccine we've heard time and time again from angola merkel that she was keen to use the sputnik the vaccine once it gets a.m.a. approval and certainly that is what we heard from yen spahn again on thursday
saying that once the european medicines agency give sputnik v. the green light germany is more than happy to use it the announcement from yen spawn that germany as a country would be in negotiations to buy sputnik became shortly after market zada who's the leader of the state of bavaria said that the variac had agreed what he called a preliminary deal with russia to buy 2 and a half 1000000 doses of the sputnik vaccine we know we're doing to try to give sputnik is approved in europe then bavaria will receive additional vaccine doses i think it's 2500000 doses probably in july through this company that is operating in bavaria to then once again increase the additional capacity for vaccinations. well looking at the reception to the sputnik vaccine here in germany it's pretty positive hugo of polling shows 55 percent of germans say they'd be more than happy
to take a sputnik job politicians and local leaders as well also on the side with getting the sputnik the vaccine into the arsenal that germany can use against the corona virus we vaccinate vaccinate vaccinate but what we need is the quantity and that's why the german government should finally sign contracts for sputnik be they should do their homework every available vaccine has to be used russia is a great land of science and i don't have the slightest doubt that scientists there are capable of producing an effective facts ian. not everybody is as positive as stefan viol who's the leader of the state of lower saxony said that his state wouldn't be entering into any side deals like the barrier it done saying they would stick to the agreement that had been agreed with the european union also there was an air of caution from yen spahn the health minister as he announced that these
talks were going on to buy sputnik he said never mind any debates about whether germany should buy the cove it not could all well prove to be a mirage because what was important was whether germany could receive doses of the job in the next 2 to 5 months because if they can't they already have deals in place that would provide germany with what they see is enough vaccines to vaccinate their population what they need is these jobs in the immediate time for an immediate timeframe in order to get them into people's arms straight away 59 countries have already given approval to the sputnik the vaccine once the a.m.a. gives that green light for use of it in the european union we're expecting a lot more a u. nations to follow the line that's being led by hungary who've already started vaccinating using it without that a.m.a. approval expecting many more nations to jump all might as well the sputnik vaccine from its face trials its face 3 trials receive just over 91 percent effective
rate seeing against the cove in 1000 vaccine that was according to statistics that were published in the lancet medical journal. thank you for that. well it's an emotional moment for people around the world particularly for the families of those about to takeoff and soyuz rocket is that's a blast off from kazakstan as baikonur cosmodrome taking 2 russians and an american to the international space station is launch is especially poignant coming just days before the 60th anniversary of the 1st person in space the rocket will launch from the same cosmodrome from which yuri gagarin made history in space ships be named in honor of the cosmonaut and a decorated with his portraits on the morning of the 12th of april 961 his vostok one craft took off circling the earth for 108 minutes and 6 decades later his name
lives on. and if you go to you're going to. go on for your. and i think here you could go right recognizing me and i wish i knew armstrong i'm sorry i don't know where. face recognition skills in the wild actually your car is now is. that a bit arsonist. and he's promised to produce the piece. so you do good god it was true but it was the speech that jesus is coming for good judgment to be a judgment is fairly good i mean you're getting.
fat. dumb but listen out of it all i see people are going to go what i'm going to get you i don't know if you already got ready for this trip i did it last time i would tell you that i'm going to start to feel what if what i do . probably. his name is you. say how do you know. to be a good writer so i'm out there will see a picture of he and i would do goldberg a bit. became god really all. the 1000 of me she had put it on me and got him
a lot of the shuttle spun off of the. you get me now. to see your ego getting a lot of the so called out of all the on the touch of a. judge. or am kidding me or do you want to go to any. writing caught up on a little bit of the kitchen i don't have i don't know judy i'd be. in the. movie were in that something. may with the mugello but i'm not sure there were. really big easy anything we don't operate on what the. inventor didn't tell on me.
and the unit. that he merkel when i. got from my dog who are all this will near you has me hearing the. thing about a. bit of russian guy the 1st guy and. something right. jagger is really like it out there he was in that movie with my chevy chase down at words like that in the eighty's. miracle in mystique. mystery. and let. me take you to remember and. you will be. supporting the. other presidents all the
international astronomical federation spoke exclusively to our today on the character needed to make such a flight. known astronauts are very balanced and even tempered people you know most of them are very tranquil they have inner peace i am not like an astronaut these to be self-possessed and cool headed to be able to deal with failures and delays that are quite frequent in this line of work once i was in charge of an experiment that resulted in a massive explosion and the rocket was damaged too it was a huge shock for me and i had to start from scratch again. that it's a real breakthrough would be for example finding life on mars at least some primitive life or if we could send marseille samples back to earth in order to run the lab tests that would be great if we could do so much with all the new technologies which are out there we could finally field test them and eventually
map out the moon's surface better build moon stations and get ready to fly to mars as to the future lunar missions the e.s.a. is also working with russia so their joint mars mission is scheduled for 2022 a robotic rover will be delivered to the martian surface that will make deep drills for the 1st time in history and collect samples of deep seeded rock and soil and if . we need to facilitate long term missions to the moon or mars through international cooperation this will increase the country's potential while reducing costs and helping to avoid duplicating effort we have a shortage of stem graduates experts in natural science and technology now that many young people choose to study technology engineering and natural in space sciences so we need to start with the youngest ones. i think you already got in played
a major role in the lives of everyone in space research and space exploration spaceflight was the starting point for further development i personally saw observing the traditions on the fly. before their mission like planting a tree or leaving their signature on the door to their room many traditions live on for decades to celebrate your garden's memory you can see it all that if you are there for the launch of the most interesting part is the launch date itself when the group checkers board the bus and say goodbye to everyone you see them leave to go up the stairs to the turn around once more and wave and then board the spacecraft it's a fantastic on the forgettable experience. when no doubt today is a special moment in the history of space 60 years ago a symbolic liftoff kicked off the air of human spaceflight and some of this special occasion i'll see will be interviewing some of today's pioneers of space exploration so watch this space.
a shooting has claimed the life of one person left 5 others injured the suspect has been apprehended at the scene in what is just the latest in a stream of gun violence cases in the u.s. and an attempt to address the problem joe biden has unveiled 6 executive orders aimed at tightening firearm controls has labeled the issue an international and virus but gun violence in this country is an epidemic whether congress acts or not and i'm going to use all the resources marja s'posed present to keep the american people safe from gun violence but there's much more of the congress can do to help that effort. and they can do it right now. the 1st proposal we heard from the white house was an effort to crack down on how guns are sold he referenced ghost guns which are guns that people manufacture by they they purchase kits to make them in their homes he talked about gun show loopholes and
background checks furthermore joe biden discussed what he calls the red flag legislation that exists in a number of states where if a person is deemed to be a threat to themselves or to others they are temporarily deprived of their guns at this point biden has been facing a huge amount of pressure from gun control supporters due to the fact that there has been a surge in gun violence you saw last year there were 20000 gun related deaths that took place and that is a 25 percent increase since 2019 that we've seen this surge of gun deaths other was recently an event where 5 people were killed in south carolina including 2 children and that was certainly not the 1st mass shooting that happened in 2021.
it's important to note that there is certainly not unity around these moves that joe biden has proposed we've seen the governor of the state of arizona put together a piece of legislation prohibiting sheriffs and police officers from carrying out any order that was deemed to be in violation of the 2nd amendment of the us constitution which guarantees the right to own a firearm. the state of arizona and its political subdivisions are prevented from utilizing any financial resources were state personnel to administer cooperate with or enforce a new law act order rule treaty or regulation of the federal government that is inconsistent with the law of the state regarding the regulation of firearms gun
control is yet another example of how polarized the united states is becoming in 2021 this is typical double speak by joe biden this is a joe barton who's putting if he's really interested in gun control who should be interested in government gun control i don't like the the idea of red and blue states there are plenty of democrats who are barry very strongly in favor of the ownership of firearms very very strongly in favor of the 2nd amendment and in fact that's why he can't get gun control passed through the senate because it's evenly divided and many democratic senators are in favor of this just like many republicans. centrist republicans may be in favor of gun control at the end of the day this is starting a slippery slope i think it's waking people up to the real agenda of the vida administration he's going to get a lot of pushback not only from red america but from red and blue america where there's strong support even in the senate among many democrats to preserve our 2nd
amendment freedoms. big tech is under fire once again and this time upright by the u.s. state of indiana could lead to legal action the state's attorney general has a key is find as the biggest tech giants facebook twitter google amazon and apple of censoring conservative voices. big tech censorship should concern every liberty loving american as endianness attorney general i work to protect hoosier from harm caused by deceptive unfair or abusive business practices including censorship of digital content todd rokita a republican attorney general went on to say that comes the companies may have violated indiana's conceive he's accuse them of limiting people's access to contents by deleting or obscuring material reflecting a politically conservative point of view florida governor rhonda scientists is
among the latest victims of the big tech purge without any warning or explanation you tube has deleted the republicans recent video of a roundtable discussion with scientists looking at public health issues during the pandemic legal analyst jennifer demands to things tech giants can't hide behind the private company excuse anymore. these big tech companies were had had to adhere to their responsibilities the protocols an equal application of the laws publicly provided provisions for how their platforms would operate things that people would know and so he's very carefully wording his investigation and right now again there's no lawsuit yet but i think the announcement of this investigation is a very big deal act like private companies private companies and they always claimed as this excuse is private companies but here they verify accounts they verify government state accounts you know the president accounts and so they do serve it
in terms of that is a state platform is a government platform and when they are censoring political speech and it's only one political side they are making themselves less of a private company and more of a necessity of a ever public good is investigation works and yields a way to allow states to do that you're going to see a lot more states in these big tech companies for causing harm because a greater fundamental right in america is also economic protections for their businesses and their consumers to have access to information. many thanks for joining us here not a international we'll be back at the top of the hour with an 8 headline.
we're segregated. by social class. people also in poverty 1st. if you're born into a poor family i ask your born into a minority family if you're born into a family that only has a single parent that really constrains your life chances people die. for native generational poverty. it's a tough tough fight every day so you meet your needs and the needs of your family. is you'll be via reflection of reality. in a world transformed. what will make you feel safe. isolation

manufacturers the government. chose seemed wrong. but old rules just don't hold. me to old yet to shape out these days to come to educate and gain treatment because betrayal . when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground. today the industry prefers to spend millions of euros in nothing to do daily creations i will be sniffy is all about making money making profits in some of the corporations international markets import export do you imagine the number of
chronic diseases that are out in every community today it is not due to new viruses or all new microbes that is not true so it is due to environment. not going to say you know the momentum is simply that the mayor of this sort of muscles are really just accumulate could only come in the day you see in the police in the us the us declared the sky if the so food industry is successful it will create more jobs it will create more value added it will create more growth so i don't see why we shouldn't also fight for the interest something in history not except that we have regulation we want regulation i was interest in the freedom behave zaniest penalty just fine.
