1:02 pm
artsy my names you know neal. we begin with breaking news on art the russian foreign minister a retaliatory measures against the u.s. in direct response to new u.s. sanctions imposed yesterday on moscow over alleged harmful activities now russia's measures include the expulsion of 10 u.s. diplomats on the possible reduction of the american diplomatic mission in the capital the latest attack on our country by the biden ministration cannot go unanswered it seems that washington does not want to accept the fact that in the new geo political realities there is no place for unilateral dictatorship and the broken scenarios of containing moscow which the us short sightedly continues to deploy on your risk further degrading russia u.s. relations. joins me now in the studio to talk more on this think
1:03 pm
it's if this it's been a pretty eventful last 24 hours bring us up to speed on the latest developments we've been going through while the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov spoke out today and you could sense how full straight to the kremlin has become by what it sees as washington's consistent efforts to just tear apart the relationship between the 2 countries on the back of those punitive measures that washington announced against moscow on thursday with now learn how exactly russia will retaliate so on friday we will get a list of 8 washington officials who will face sanctions additionally the diplomat love rove said that they have suggested that 10 american diplomats leave russian territory a number of u.s. organizations which moscow believes are interfering in its internal affairs also have to stop their activity so those are the concrete steps that moscow has so far announced but lavrov did add that if the u.s. continues to behave the way that it has done until now more can and will be done
1:04 pm
including reducing the diplomatic mission to just $300.00 here he also mentioned that if rather that it is a power to take action that would be home full for u.s. business interests but they're going to keep that as a trump card so to speak if needs be so family extensive need thing the door open for a better relationship but also being realistic preparing for you to all of this this is in response to what happened on thursday the toast of both just remind us we could in fact say that this is the culmination of increasing tensions between the 2 countries you know ever since joe biden took office we've seen pretty undiplomatic sometimes even downright hostile rhetoric of course we saw the infamous interview in which president biden cooled his russian counterpart a killer on international television and that final blow was dealt when in an. executive order on thursday 'd president biden announced what can only be described
1:05 pm
as a sanction spree so the package that 32 russian entities and individuals have been sanctioned for allegedly interfering in last year's presidential election stateside a range of financial and technical technology companies have also been targeted for apparent cyber attacks on federal agencies 10 russian diplomats expelled russia's ability to bore money made a bit harder so pretty far reaching though what is interesting is that biden claims that actually he held back and this was his sort of take it easy on russia set of sanctions that ultimately he really still wants to be friends united states is not looking to kick off the. school is she in conflict with russia we want a stable predictable relationship now is the time to deescalate well saying that are off to announcing a slew of sanctions is fairly confusing perhaps even illogical punishment is generally not a good nourishment for
1:06 pm
a strong relationship so you'd be forgiven for seeing a very big disconnect between what washington says i.d.s. collation and what washington does punitive measures something that actually the russian side has pointed out calls from overseas to refrain from escalation sound hypocritical in essence to trying to talk to us from a position of strength we have repeatedly warned and proved in practice that sanctions and other pressures are not only futile but will also result of disastrous consequences for those who decide on such provocations so clearly it's going to require a very strong shift in gear to get russia u.s. ties close to even a normal perhaps even productive with moscow really almost resigning itself to the fact that whilst relations is of course not what it once it might be left with no other option you know a lot of courage since the experience is that the moment thanks very much for that are you today. we discussed the issue with the former director general of the un
1:07 pm
office in geneva sergei or john mccain he's got reservations over the legality of these new u.s. sanctions it's very unhealthy understanding or what the foreign policy is this sending a completely completely completely signals to a new one in the world at the of course most the woman russia these there is no good europe for all of us on the part of the super pro sanctions they are completely legal if they are not a doctor but the security council otherwise it's use or economic. or with the force it is very difficult to. tolerate such such as. i do think that you have to build bridges with the
1:08 pm
united states because we have a lot of common interests in. the digits the bill. while on veiling the latest raft of sanctions the u.s. also signed it claims made last year of russia offering bounties to the taliban to kill american troops in afghanistan the white house admits it has very little to back up those claims but is nevertheless demanding answers from the kremlin. we felt the reports were enough of a cause of concern they assessed with low to moderate confidence as you alluded to that russian intelligence officers sought to encourage taliban attacks against u.s. and coalition personnel and afghanistan so while there's a lot of moderate assessment of these reports we felt it was important for our intelligence committee to look into it this information really puts the burden on russia and the russian government to explain their engagement here just to go through what's been spoken about in june last year it was reported that russian intelligence offered taliban linked militants to kill american troops in
1:09 pm
afghanistan in $29.00 the allegations were never proven the pentagon itself said it could not corroborate the reports but that didn't stop the media from embracing the story vladimir putin is offering bounties for the scalps of american soldiers in afghanistan now the european intelligence official called this callous shocking and reprehensible overnight president trump dismissed the intelligence denied being briefed on it as new reports emerged saying those payments did in fact lead to the death of americans while russia has rejected the allegations with the foreign ministry branding them the speculation for b. is of the u.s. intelligence community from u.s. marine corps intelligence officer scott ritter told the program earlier intelligence in such cases is used to achieve political goals. the mere fact that you have politicians action on intelligence that has appeared on the front pages of
1:10 pm
the new york times bill is you right off the bat and it's not intelligence it's been it's clearly sized information as opposed to hard intelligence look the united states and russia are adults they they they they sit at the big table they wear big boy pants and their intelligence services do things against one another because that information normally we understand this is the reality of the world but the united states right now is very defensive it's dealing with a changing world changing reality and the fact that russia refuses to play the game of being subservient to you know a dominant america and so this is a domestic political problem where intelligence is 0 and political objective as opposed to doing what it's supposed to do providing insight american decision makers about what ground truth in russia is. to europe where they drum and chancellor has been accused of undermining the country's
1:11 pm
democracy. markel pleaded with lawmakers to grant the federal government powers to impose regional curfews on locked ons without the consent of local authorities michael was heckled chairing a heated debate in parliament. we're slamming on the brakes nationwide i'm convinced a nationwide imagine see stop is overdue and urgently needed a lauren measures have a single goal to lead our country ad of this terrible phase of managing infections care he said not when you know when sion but they are part of the infection protection or that is currently in place. i ask you jay colleagues whatever a personal opinions may be don't you think that we should take them into account in the way we debating this here ultimately what i'm going to merkel wants is changes to the infection protection act that would allow her not just to say this is what you should be doing but to be able to say this is what is going to happen the way it works here in germany with their federal system is although things can be
1:12 pm
decided from the federal government in berlin how they're implemented on the ground particularly when it comes to covert 19 restrictions are left up to the interpretations of the governments of the 16 states that make up germany now what angle america wants to do is take some of those powers from the states and have them for herself well as you can imagine not everybody is happy with that outside of the bundestag there was a small but vocal demonstration against what the chancellor is trying to do in the opposition from the alternative for germany party though and making the argument that these powers already exist that they don't need to be given to the to the federal government and that the chancellor should let the states decide what's best for the states this effect to introduce the infection protection act is an alarming document of authoritarian thinking never before has a federal government dared to include so many attacks on the basic freedoms of citizens and the rule of law and on democratic principles and so few sentences as
1:13 pm
in this draft more we've been here before though with anglo merkel's saying she wanted to implement national 'd measures national lock downs and things like curfews when it comes to the fight against covert 19 just before. easter we heard the chancellor announce this was going to happen over the easter break only for her to have to make one of the biggest u. turns of her political career when just over 24 hours later she said actually that's not going to happen because technically i don't have the powers to be able to tell you to do that in mali you know it's thursday the fast of april as well as the surge of april should be defined as calm days with extensive contact restrictions and a ban on gatherings from the fast to the 5th of april. it isn't going and the idea was a mistake this mistake is my mistake alone a mistake must be called a mistake and above all it must be corrected at the same time of course i know that this whole matter trygaeus more uncertainty i regret that deeply and apologize to
1:14 pm
all citizens this brings us today and the facts of the matter on the ground when it comes to covert 19 is that germany is being gripped particularly hard by this wave the robert cock into the tube which handles germany's public health affairs is warning that unless something is done that april could well be a record breaking month for germany when it comes to covert 19 infections what angle are merkel is seeking the power to be able to do is that when cases reach a number of 100 new infections per 100000 over population that an emergency brake can be pulled nationally the thing is is there's a lot of pushback against this the spite that push back it does seem likely that these changes to the infection protection act will be made by some point next week we expect them to be signed into law by german president frank fall to. get it all
1:15 pm
over to construe god will journalist and author thomas fassbender believes uncle or miracles move mixed sense the spike criticism from the opposition. she believes in the necessity of increased risk and a strict a lockdown curfew measures etc and she decided to wholeheartedly i should say to take this way of centralizing her powers against existing opposition i do not assume angela merkel has any idea of attacking the democratic order in germany but it is a test of the democratic all in german no question under crisis situation which we have for the 1st time in this country and some people are very much a fundamental lies in what is going on and driving it up to philosophical heights i'd say the majority in germany sees this as a an end to effect measure and not the nothing more. another
1:16 pm

1:17 pm
allegedly misled its viewers to get ratings reportedly didn't stop most to bring donald trump you can enter a website or to talk column i also the sky the revelations with project newsroom chief nick geve us. we can speak to the fact that this technical director charlie chester he was certainly part of the culture he was speaking as if they were an advocacy group and this is a network that uses the tagline the most trusted name in news does the most trusted name in news you know collude directly or indirectly with black lives matter that's a question for the american public to ask it seems that the rules that as a society that we all thought were in place are no longer in place there is no more roebuck this is you know this is concerning this is something that the american people should be looking into this is something they should be studying and this is something that they should know about because anything this big that means people make value decisions that affect their lives every day based on the news and if
1:18 pm
you're telling them you're real and in you know we're off hours you're saying that you're completely fake your propaganda that needs to be investigated that needs to be looked at further. a cancer specialist from moscow has become the 1st ever russian to be officially inducted into the prestigious american surgical association igor haute cough is currently moscow's leading on colleges he's a pioneer of keyhole surgery for cancer treatment in the country during his 30 year career there were no doctor has published 7 major studies and almost $300.00 papers to boot he told us what this latest recognition meet. we've to be. undoubtedly it is a happy and significant moment in a professional life of any person when colleagues highly appreciate your professional skills and it is very pleasant and honorable for me on the other hand it is a great responsibility as you have to keep proving your worth but of course it is
1:19 pm
also an opportunity to establish closer and more interesting contacts with professionals from all over the world an opportunity to hear and be heard as well as to help young colleagues surgeons to develop the number of people diagnosed with cancer for the 1st time is increasing every year it happens all over the world and is a reflection of many factors but the main one is the increase in life expectancy at the same time treatment strategies have been developing very quickly to this applies to both surgical treatment and drug therapy it became possible to stabilize processes even in the most severe stages and surgeons today to perform complex operations that were previously considered impossible even non-specialists today have already heard about targeting therapy immunotherapy there have been real breakthroughs in the field of drug treatment opportunities have opened up for stabilizing tumors and reducing their size this makes it possible to ensure a good quality of life for patients and sometimes to cure even the most advanced
1:20 pm
stages of course we cannot say that we can heal everyone and it is unlikely that this will ever happen but the phrase cancer is not a death sentence is the real truth well author and historian martin believes the news is particularly significant given the current political climate. the top russian specialist monk the best in the world and if i could resist same in the soviet union talk soviet doctors and specialists were among the best in the world russian specialists have always heard this high reputation and know this is normally important news crews deduce because he's a 1st russian middle to this very important surgical association but also i don't time of enormous tension between russia and the united states should prove that if you put politics aside when you go to medicine or science or
1:21 pm
literature or anything else there is really quite a lot of common ground between russia and the united states they can come together and you don't have the conflict you have in politics and indefensible. you'll have heard of the walk brigade well in the u.k. it's become a reality soldiers in the british army's royal engineers regiment are being told to mind their language in case of offend someone artie's someone right throws a few grenades on the front line of the cultural war. so the main dangers of being in the military is you can be shot at. blown up. or fall victim to non gender neutral language well $22.00 engineer regiment of the british army is doing something about in the language not the horrible death stuff don't call each other lads soldiers are told to be more inclusive and avoid using words such as mankind and sportsmanship over fears that they could cause offense to residents knowledge of major reportedly told his men. people that they need to try harder to hold the

regiments v. and s. b. and s. 1000 values and standards do not mix up with b. and s. he also said that everyone has to remember d. and on that diversity and inclusion and gents men lads other phrases like that are not to be used and this is my for. ray said it should be made sure that people are getting paid the correct compliments we don't always says no you know what. you're. right. what this story has caused some our rage among friends or gobs like these more with of course actually there's nothing new about these directions they came out in 2017 released by the british army's joint equality diversity and inclusion unit or jeddah as it's known. were inclusive most important so some poles from the guidance from the u.k.
1:23 pm
military's jet i wore as a clue suggesting sportsmanship be replaced with fairness or good humor and the word mankind be replaced with humanity whew mankind human race people has had to reset or some of those have man in as well were british war heroes to tim collins back in 2017 describe to listeners the ludicrous and dangerous morass into which obsequious and p.c. addled senior officers have led the british army which means he doesn't like it. so we can conclude from this is a 4 years on after about the voice was originally given soldiers are still not quite ready to have their language policed probably because if you're in the army you've got a few other things to worry about let's not forget but the army has been at the forefront of the quality they've been teaching mentor on their own trousers for centuries washed on one saw a return over. to the book about dropping bombs on middle eastern villages is the absolute definition of inclusive ety they're killing everyone without 'd prejudice
