2:02 pm
died there, including at the hands of provocateurs and his crew was approved by the united states and the europeans just accepted that as fact. and no one is going to investigate the my down atrocities. there's a cost at our side versus foreign ministry here where the press conference or with bushes. foreign minister said a lateral wrapped up a few hours ago and it did go on for quite a few hours because level of, as you heard, they're pulling no punches over the worse than the the us in a situation. 10 situation around ukraine at the moment. another press, it came at an important time, of course, as regards the situation in ukraine as talks with nato and talk to the u. s. in geneva, and in brussels. earlier this week, let's you pretty much a debt and the u. s. not bending on most of those demands to provide security guarantees over that situation. it would ukraine. of course, the question on everyone's lips has been whether there will be a so called
2:03 pm
a invasion in ukraine or by russia. of course, the worst accusing russia of strengthening his forces on the border and ukraine as nato expands eastward. russia says it has every right to defend is borders. now that question was raised at the very start of the press conference, and we can get circ a lab rose, answer to it right here. american nato seems to have made it very clear that they're not going to. it's a give you the security guarantee. if you don't get the guarantees, you've said that you, ne, that there will be a military response. what does and military songs actually me, could you, could you lay that house? are you ready to use military fools to ensure that ukraine never good native? who knew now only western colleagues, guess using tea leaves, they mediately grab the sanctions baton. we're for everything being decided on the basis of mutual respect and a balance of interests. the position of russia presented by nato is based precisely
2:04 pm
on the balance of interest and is aimed at the security of europe as a whole, including russia. anita wants to create military footholds around the russian federation to dominate europe. now love also said that even if ukraine isn't drags in sinay, so as it were, any appearance of nato forces on his borders will be seen as a will constitute a red line of red lines was a buzz words for the geopolitical situation in the past few months he said that is not acceptable. russia will not accept that. neither will accept us building military bases or placing a strike missiles anywhere in a sea of as of that also constitutes a red line. oh, he outlines those red lines in the press conference and we can hear just how may constitute a red line for russia in this grab here, we are good to go teach q. you put a human. we categorically do not accept the appearance of nato on our borders. it's
2:05 pm
a red line. they know it. even if ukraine remains outside nato, there is still a possibility of ukraine in agreements with the u. s. the u. k. and other western countries that are building military facilities and bases on the see of as of there, this is also an acceptable to us. this is enough, a red line, not it talks over the past week, have also said as a marker of the tensions between us and russia. of course, the u. s. are not bending on any of russia's demands. it seems. and i also was lucky enough to ask a sec, i love rob about the words of the u. s. secretary of state, anthony lincoln, who said that all president putin has done in the past 2 years or so, is there to facilitate what he wanted to present or prevent her rather. and those are kind of strong words from the u. s. i is, oliver said,
2:06 pm
that really isn't the case. said he was surprised at those words by blinking gressick natasha anthony b. u. s. secretary of state blinking argues that what present couldn't, has done over the past couple of years has only speeded up everything that couldn't would like to prevent on which basis does blanket make such comments. do you think we don't put on putin has been devoting all the last years to strengthen russian sovereignty, which is constantly under attack by the west? those are attacks on all fronts. direct military to terrance information attack, soft power mechanism. and others is a shame that someone thinks that russia is in the pocket of the west, much of what is being said to days, connected with escalating tensions around, the russian federation says, you see that sig, i love any press office that i pulling absolutely no punches as regards the west in nato, he's called out the hypocrisy if nate so purporting to stand a full human rights. however, than supporting a bloody cruise until the revolutions as it were. as regards what happens in
2:07 pm
ukraine, and instead of calling it acute, fully in said a diplomatic processor that he also said is up to the west. now is that the us, he has written to washington as regards those guarantees on safety and security and isn't to them now the pool is very much in the us go to find a peaceful resolution to little another big story we're across to day. the cia is reported to have been training ukrainian special operations teams amid tensions with russia. the program is believed to have learned 6 years ago. our taste on quarter can tell us more about the revelations. according to a recent yahoo news article, basically the c i a is training ukrainian special forces units on american soil. and this is to fight in case of an apparent russian invasion of ukraine. again, we've said many times in this channel. moscow said many times this is basically just nonsense, but nevertheless, ukrainian troops are apparently getting some state of the art training from the,
2:08 pm
you know, u. s. government. the program has involve very specific training on skills that would enhance the ukrainians ability to push back against the russians. said the former senior intelligence official, us base ca program has included training and firearms camouflage techniques, land navigation tactics like cover and move intelligence and other areas. yahoo news of course was not specific about the actual names, but it says that 5 former intelligence and national security officials pass this information along to them. apparently these training programs involve camouflage exercises, lands, navigation, exercises and the like. but all the while washington, the saying that these are not offensively oriented exercises, us officials claim that they're just centered around intelligence gathering us officials deny that the ca, training program is war was ever offensively oriented. but just what intelligence support entails in the paramilitary context can be ambiguous and how this training
2:09 pm
will be applied by the ukrainians may change rapidly with facts on the ground. now what is exactly intelligence gathering mean? i mean, while in the context of power, military operations, we don't really know because we don't know what the ukranian special forces are going to be doing with the training they've received on american soil in the future . we at least know that the u. s. military advisors were training ukrainians, ukrainian forces, specifically after the events of euro, my don in 2014, but that was all on ukrainian soil. we also, we for marcia. executive said that going back decades, the ca has provided limited training to ukrainian intelligence units to try and shore up, you know, and i suppose it independent kiev and prevent russian subversion as the see. i saw it, but that cooperation specifically was ramped up after the crimea became a part of russia. now we did reach out to the cia and the defense, the defense department of the united states for comments. so of course we'll bring our viewers any response we get a street house agreed to delay the
2:10 pm
deportation of tennis superstar novak joel cabbage that comes out to the countries immigration minister on friday revoked his visa for a 2nd time to day i exercised my power to cancel the visa held by mister novak joke of h on health and good order grounds on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so. i'll salia has again revoked the visa of tennessee, the star novak a joke of age at this time on the health and good order grounds. now his lawyers are all ready lodging a pail, isn't it a late night co tearing australia have agreed not to deport him just yet. if they do go ahead and to port him, of course he will face a 3 year ban on re entering the country. needless to say, it time is of the essence now is to 3 days until the australian opens starts. therefore, jock of inches, sight have said they want the full herring to take place on sunday morning so that the result will be heard by monday morning in time. if will good, the joke of
2:11 pm
h to stop competing in this tournament said there is a glimmer of hope that but it's really been nonstop drama since jokers, which landed on australian soil on the 6th of january. his visa was revoked to upon arrival it few days later, it was then reinstated. but since then, questions have been raised about how heat flouted isolation while he was coated positive and also inaccuracies on his travel form. he's put all of these things down to human error. my age and sincerely apologizes for the administrative mistake and ticking the incorrect box about my previous travel before coming to australia. this was a human error and certainly not deliberate. the house saw guys divided opinion across the world for his fans. of course a, it's a different story this, that just so angry at the unprecedented nature of australia's decision and also so upset that they see the apparent encroachments of politics into sports. we actually
2:12 pm
spoke to a few people, some of novak jock of it's his fellow serves on the streets of bow grades who get their opinion of all. i am revolted and angry because i did not expect they would treat the world's best tennis player like this. but he did not deserve this or was there so i'm all with no, vickie, going through is the frustration of our entire nation disorder. if they had said from the beginning that only vaccinated people can participate, it would be all right, look. but at one point, they tell him one thing, another time, something else. this is pure politics. the issue here are the principles we live for, at least as europeans freedom, fraternity equality are you. i think it's fair to say we might also see anger spill out onto the streets of melbourne once the gang just like it did after his visa was revoked for the 1st time. ah.
2:13 pm
so what's next for? know that joke of h y, which is going to have to wait and see but this just couldn't have come at a worse time for him. this is australian open represents the pinnacle of his career . if he came out on top that this australian open, it would mark his 10th consecutive when making him the greatest a male tennis star of old times. so needless to say, a lot of stake here. the father of the tennessee says slum the treatment of his son by compressing exclusively to r t that they attempt to cancel the world. number one is visa was politically motivated. you can delve into the likelihood of the winning tree in a row, a street in open, jumpy getting to defend his pride over at archie duncan joe biden's week has gone from bad to worse after seeing his plan from monday. tree vaccine shut down by the supreme court. the u. s. president was then hoping to change voting rules in the senate and pushed through some key built but that's been
2:14 pm
derailed by members of his own party. that cross live now to ortiz, kill of mark in the new york who can take us through it. hi there, caleb. not the best few days for the mom in the oval office. i would say sure, jo biden's voting rights bill appears to have been derailed in the us senate. now at this point the republicans are threatening to filibuster it and kirsten cinema, a democratic senator from arizona, has come forward and said she is not planning to vote to change the senate rules in order to allow the bill to pass and overrule the filibuster. this is what she said . where does this descending spiral of division lead? and how can we stop at our countries? divisions have now killed efforts and several states that will make it more difficult for americans to vote and undermine say, that all american should have in our elections in our democracy. these bills help
2:15 pm
treat the symptoms of the disease, but they do not fully address the disease itself. and while i continue to support these bills, i will not support separate actions that worse than the underlying disease of division infecting our country. so what, what this is referring to is called the filibuster. now, this is a method through which a minority party in the us senate can block a bill being supported by the majority. by prolonging the debate indefinitely, they simply keep talking and keep debating the bill. preventing the final vote from proceeding, it's called the filibuster. it's been used by democrats in the past has been used by republicans in the past has been associated with a number of different political causes and laws, et cetera. and at this point with kirsten cinema coming forward and saying that she doesn't intend to allow the filibuster to be overridden. and that she will allow
2:16 pm
the republican filibuster this voting rights bill to go on. even though she has blasted the republicans and their efforts in local areas around voting and says she supports the bill. at this point, the white house is admitting defeat. this is what joe biden said. pianist got answer is, i don't know whether we can get this done as long as i'm in the white house, as long as i'm engaged at all. i'm going to be friday to change the way these legislatures have moved. now on tuesday and joe biden went to the us state of georgia to promote this voting rights bill giving an important speech. but many noted that stacy abrams a rising star in the democratic party, did not attend the speech. and this led to some interesting speculation on m. s. nbc, from their commentators about why that may be politicians don't show up with presidents when their approval ratings may be in the thirty's in the state where they are now,
2:17 pm
jo biden's approval ratings are in fact dropping. he's becoming less popular every day. meanwhile, we're now seeing members of his own party stepping up and getting in the way of proposals coming from the white house. so joe biden, you'll recall, came into office promising to resolve a number of problems in the country, which he blamed on donald trump. now as his, you know, came into office promising to bring the country together, promising to restore the economy, etc. that hasn't really panned out. joe biden. whitehouse continues to be unpopular and many in the country are looking on and seeing that things haven't improved the way they expected. caleb, thanks very much for taking us through all the explanation ortiz kill more been in new york. well let's stay on the east coast move to washington dc. that is where christopher horace is waiting to speak to us christopher, his executive director of the news website on hyphenated america. good to have you with us. democrats control both houses on congress,
2:18 pm
but biden is still unable to push through crucial legislation. what does that say about where the party is today? you know, democrats a day or something to do the same thing. they did a 100 plus years ago when they sought to create a separate but equal different groups of people united states of america, they're trying to create an unequal group of unvaccinated people, united states of america, one of the things that hyphen that hyphenated a term that was like you're an unvaccinated american is what they want to try to do to other people. and thankfully the supreme court, in this case, i'm very thankful for social justice, clarence thomas, who pretty much got a little bit of revenge on a job waiting for the high tech lynching that he attempted to do when claire thomas was being nominated for the supreme court so i think he got a little spark out of that one just to be able to play a major role in smacking that down. but democrats do have
2:19 pm
a major problem. it's looking like there's going to be a way, something like what happened in the 1993, i think was a 103rd session of congress when newt gingrich came in with the republican revolution in the contract with america. where there were well over 100 seats, that change hands. i suspect that's going to happen in 2020 to mid top akita. it was the rule of the fully buster this way, christopher, which biden claims has been weaponized and abused. although we heard other people in the democratic party saying that it's a vital tool for, for keeping a track on federal policies hasn't become a problem in us. politics shouldn't be scrapped. it should remain. and ms. mcconnell warned them, what is it 6 or 8 years ago? when he was as senate majority leader, i guess he was minority here at that time. if i remember correctly, he warned democrats not to try to overturn the, the 2 thirds majority. because that if you weaponized that it's going to come back
2:20 pm
and bite you, it did, and it has. and now they're crying foul, even though we, they used it when it was convenient for them. you know, once again the 20 times 2022 midterms is going to be devastating for the democratic party. unless republicans do what they're famous for doing, which is snatching a glorious victory from the shooting, snatching or is the feet from the, you know, the gall at the jaws of victory. i mean, it's all there for republicans to take. all they have to do is not screw up. well, just to remind the fewer is what we were speaking, but bible wants to pass a bill. he claims will protect voting rights and prevent discrimination against ethnic minority voters. republican say no, you're in fact snatching more power from from localized authorities and giving them to federal bodies our reforms needed. no one is ridiculous assertion and here is one of the bigger things. if you look around united states of america,
2:21 pm
the areas where they're claiming that minorities, right, they're basically saying that people who look like me are having problems loaning well in those areas where people will look like me are having problems. voting. those are areas that are almost exclusively democrat hello areas there in the densely populated urban areas where the local parties have power control over that . so i have to ask a democrats, why is it that your fellow democrats seem to have problems? voting and don't try to status because they cannot, you know, voter id, it's ridiculous because you're trying to press for people to have a vaccine id. if you think they can get a vaccine id but they can't get a voter. i'd be, i think there are some, there is some conflict there, right? i mean, how is it they can get one, but they can't get another and you're trying to impress. people say you can't go to stores, you can't go to restaurants without a vaccine id. but then you're saying, oh it's, it's a press of the try to say that you can't book without proving your identity. this is the ridiculousness of dealing with the modern left in a democratic party. and just one of the thing with what's going on from
2:22 pm
a part of the problems that president bite has right now in his own party is he's very unpopular and the only person less pop losing him is as vice president and people are floating. hillary clinton as the only possible savior, the democratic party. you got like 296 major democrats, right from the 225 democrats. and us also representatives of $48.00 democrats, senators, and all that. so basically you have 296 u. s. a democrats, as governor, senators and congressmen, and you're telling me none of them are going to be look good for 2024. how bad is your party right now? yet the mid terms in november, as you say, should be interesting as well. christopher, thanks for your time today. christopher harris, executive director of the conservative news website on hyphenated america still i had in the program, emerick is in the grip all by supply chain crisis,
2:23 pm
which supermarket is running out of goods, but president biden safe olds. ok, the story edge. ah ah
2:24 pm
join me every thursday on the alex simon, sure. well, i'll be speaking to guess of the world of politics, sport business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. mm. ah. hello again. american consumers are feeling the pain with inflation of its highest in a generation on supermarket shelves emptying out as cobit disrupt supply chains. president biden, and says it's all part of a global problem. but republicans are pointing the finger squarely at his administration under joe biden. everything costs more store shelves are empty, and small businesses are struggling to hire workers and stay open. this trend is in
2:25 pm
transitory and it's all happening under democrats. one party control disgruntled shoppers are also blaming the president, posting images of empty supermarket isles, under the hash tag bur shelves, biden. the american leader recently, claim supply chain problems are actually being solved. so our colleagues at r t america went to take a look for themselves from injury to downtown washington. the area that we're finding with the shelves are empty of beef, chicken, eggs, fruit and vegetables, even non perishable items, difficult to find and some grocery stores. now in a normal year, 5 to 10 percent of food items may be unavailable. today, nearly 15 percent are out of stock. that according to jeff freeman, president and ceo of the consumer brands association and officials say things may
2:26 pm
not get better for the next 12 to 18 months. now there are many reasons for this, including an increased demand for groceries with families choosing to eat at home during the omicron serge. as we saw here in dc metro area last week, winter storms have effected major interstate. and a shortage of as many as $80000.00 truck drivers are out nationwide. that's a historic high, according to the american trucking association. and because of this export say to expect price hikes and food shortage is similar to what we saw in 2020. now here's what you're seeing. as a result on tuesday, walmart kroger, and albert's in stocks did albertson's. taking the biggest, indicating a trend among major grocers being affected by those supply chain issues. also, these trips to the grocery store are costing shoppers even more with inflation rates soaring to 7 percent for the 1st time and for decades now, with the united states seeing more than 700000 cases of coven 19 per day on average during this omicron serge it's slowing down food manufacturers and causing grocery
2:27 pm
store workers to call out sick. and we heard reports from companies talking about it had more positive in the past 2 weeks when they had in all 2020. those wasn't 1st thing people off the front lines. it's forcing companies to shut down manufacturing lines preemptively. and it's leading to just simply not enough supply and say that things may not return to normal until staffing levels are restored. this pandemic loads up in the global food distribution network is restored. staying stateside with the omi called strain sweeping america, fewer people are donating blood. there's been such a decline, not the countries redcross us, the current. it's 1st ever blood crisis. it stays, there is no less than one day supply. we spoke to one of their specialists in washington, red cross supplies, 40 percent of the nation's blood, and we typically strive to keep a 5 day supply on hand at all times. what we've been experiencing as it
2:28 pm
relates to this current bullet crisis is that we've had less than a one day supply of critical blood products in recent weeks. so that's what distinguishes this particular blood shortage in terms of capacity. blood cannot be, may factored or stuck out every 2 seconds. some wine in the with needs blood as doctors are being forced to make difficult decisions about who receives transfusions and who will need to wait until more products become available. so covered is definitely a factor in terms of the blood supply. as we're seeing a 3rd in co, but 19 variants, that impacts the ability for donors to be able to give as you have to be feeling well. and of course not symptomatic. the situation will continue to become
2:29 pm
more dire and ongoing, and it will impact patient care tremendously. ah, no, the u. n. world food program is warning of a quote soon army of hunger in afghanistan, half of the population has been struggling to obtain food alone. this winter's situation seemly being made worse as well. by sanctions i things have gotten so bad for some they have resorted to selling their organs. afghan matter, $2300.00 equals the price of the kidney or how long that will feed a family is unclear. i couldn't go out and beg for money. i was not able to bake. then i decided to go to the hospital and sell my kidney, so i could at least feed my children for some time. a welcome to modern afghanistan with the organ trade is flourishing. amidst a dire economic crisis,
2:30 pm
99 percent of the don't is selling kidneys of the people encountering economic problems and only one percent of donors of the ones who donate that kidney to a family member. it needed to most donors come from poor families and may not be aware of the consequences. plus the deaths won't go away by themselves. most of people leave the country, fearing for their lives, but some also leave in search of jobs. and when those people can not make it to other countries, they come back home and they have to pay the money they had borrowed for their travel coast. and to do that, they sell their household belongings or sell their kidneys, and some people even decide to sell their children just passed on for the shock. the chaotic us nato withdrawal and the taliban take over, pushed afghanistan into financial chaos.
