yes, banking is about russia slams about his decision to pull out of the open skies. treaty accusing washington of previously having only failed commitments of the deal. western allies have criticised the move its nerve agents around exposing the regime a new york times. moscow correspondent, sounds like something straight out of a spy thriller and reveals the outlets predetermine narrative. another texan with a rare muscle disease comes to rush for treatment after being told. he would never walk again. and spencer shares his story exclusively with aren't you so useless all the time? it was necessary. and if u.s.
1:01 am
states rolled out a new pandemic laws of its soaring infection rates, politicians are caught out planting. good morning to you. thanks for joining us. this is r.t. international, an act of hypocrisy, and just for a show, that's how russia has described america's decision to pull out of the open skies treaty, which permits mutual aerial surveillance flights. moscow also warns that the move will harm international security has been following the story, joins me in the studio. and as i understand it, america was kind of putting the blame on russia for their decision. and yet i understand it's not actually something that russia wants. what's the response been? well, there's disappointment in moscow to say the least that the american administration
1:02 am
is keeping the legs from under this treaty, for which on the russian side. as saying that, the russian side saying washington has no legitimate reasons whatsoever. moscow is maintaining that claims of violations on the part of russia of the treaty that has been enforced for 18 years are all made up. and no one's seen any proof of how russia was breaking in. moscow was blaming washington for violations to washington's design. denied again, the question is whether that's a good enough reason to get rid of the treaty. the answer from moscow is no. we understand that the answer from washington is yes, since it's pulling out, russian officials believe that the u.s. government was lying about considering to stay in the treaty under certain circumstances. and the assumption here in the russian capital is that the u.s. officials were doing it deliberately and that it was all part of their plan. in
1:03 am
recent months, washington has hypocritically stated that in the keys of a change in the russian position, it could reconsider its decision. in fact, no one there had planned to reconsider anything that was again for the public designed to mislead foreign governments and the public of european states that were urging washington to come to its senses. now something else that's very important here is that russia believes that what the u.s. administration wants to do is to seek a bad by european countries of russian flights over its territory over the u.s. military sites in that region. but at the same time, the russians believe that what the americans want to do is to continue getting the data from europe on their flights and the russian air space. and clearly that's not fair. so what's left for the russian officials to do? what they want to do is to put pressure on the european countries to make sure that
1:04 am
they remain committed to the green mint. but if that doesn't happen, all that, all options are left on the table from moscow, maybe moscow will have to leave the treaty as well. but in any case, the russian message is that by leaving the treaty, the u.s. clearly is putting again, international law at risk and not making the security situation in europe anyhow, easier. you mentioned european countries involved there, and there will be european countries among the, the, the many dozens of other signatories to the treaty. how do they feel about the u.s., pulling out? yeah, i mean, there was the u.s., the russia, but there are still 33 other countries that are signatories to the open skies treaty. and these include some very important european players, such as germany, france, and spain. and so far, their reaction from european countries has been critical of that move by the us administration. we deeply regret the united states decided to take this step and is
1:05 am
now implementing its iran position on the treaty remains unchanged. we consider rich to be an important part of the arms control architecture that contributes to building mutual trust in the us to greater security in the northern hemisphere from stoke to vancouver. but if you're thinking that it's only russia or european states that were here were grounds for him, that's not only the case because there are voices of concern about this move by donald trump in the us to the administration's decision to withdraw from the open skies treaty is reckless. i strongly believe that president trumps decision to withdraw from the treaty is a violation of domestic law. president trump brazenly ignored the law and is unilaterally imposing a politically charged withdrawal even after losing a presidential election. here's an erotic aspect for you. the open skies treaty was
1:06 am
initially proposed by washington that was back in 1955, although it only came into force in 2002, but it's been there for 18 years. and now we're just seeing something from the donald trump administration, something that has been up to for about 4 years. he's been getting rid of some very important treaties, some how to do with security. most notably, that was the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty. then plenty of other aspects as well. you can name the paris climate accord. so he's a lame duck president at this point, but that didn't stop him from continuing to do what he has usually been up to. and again, this is perhaps another step that we should have expected from donald trump. maybe not, maybe we could have stopped now, that he's not making those decisions perhaps, or not important as before, but you can argue about. and if i recall correctly,
1:07 am
joe budden was in the big found of the u.s. pulling out of this treaty that might just be one of several, donald trump decisions that the biden will reverse, but that's all yet to do that. yeah. if he gets into office, many thanks, ali. now in other news, a new york times job for moscow correspondent has been accused of being russophobe it successful candidates are expected to deal with hit squads, cyber agents and shadowy military figures. the description of russia struck summers something a bit more akin to a spy or movie. but as it is done of explains fact, or fiction africa only confused by the out that what you're about to hear. sounds like it's been ripped straight from the blockbuster screenwriters playbook. vladimir putin's russia remains one of the biggest stories in the world. it sends out hit squads on with nerve agents against its enemies. most recently, the opposition leader alex, in nevada. only. it has its cyber chaos and disharmony in the west to tarnish its
1:08 am
democratic systems while promoting its phone version of democracy. it is deployed private military contractors around the globe to secretly spread its influence at home, its hospitals are filling up fast with coated patients as its president hides out in his villa. i mean, add some dramatic music. do a call video, add it pepper the whole thing with a few explosions here and there, and you've cooked up a trailer for the next hit limited series on netflix. but no, it's not that not by a long shot. it's actually the opening of a job for a russian reporter with the new york times page searches for unbiased or impartial or balance. come a blank, no results found in the text. not that it's much of a secret though, that the new york times isn't that interested in covering a happy russia.
1:09 am
but some readers weren't that impressed with the sudden spasm of honesty from the paper did the c.a.e. write new york times new russia, crisp on in job and fluency in russian is preferred fluency in russian for a russian journalist is preferred me looking for a job in the e.u. i speak russian english have be one french learn german willing to improve any if needed. new york times, you go to russia, don't know russian not a problem. it's interesting that the new york times openly admits that it has a pre-determined propaganda narrative. they want to push about russia before their new correspondent even gets there. their job is basically writing anti russia since
1:10 am
ational ism, that their editors want, instead of real reporting. we've been in touch with the new york times for comment . you know, both sides of the story and all that. but we've yet to hear anything back from them . cynically speaking, it makes perfect sense. positive stories from russia don't tickle the fancy of pulitzer prize. judges allegations lacking evidence. or though, do just believe in the bogeyman. pulitzer prize winning journalist and former new york times foreign correspondent chris hedges says that the ad exposes the real russia angle of the paper. i initially thought it was satire, i didn't think it was real. and then i went on the new york times website and read it. and it's really kind of an obituary journalist. the role of a foreign correspondent is to be bicultural. it is to get into that culture and explain how they view reality. and here you have this narrative, pre written,
1:11 am
narrative, demonization, really of russia and vladimir putin. and i have to say that there's nothing in that description that the united states doesn't do in spades and far worse. and so why even open of bureau in moscow? why have somebody spend hundreds of hours studying russian and reading russian history and literature and culture? why not? why not have algorithms do it? it was absolutely appalling, but it's part of the siloing of the american press to serve a particular demographic. in the case of the new york times, it is a democratic party based readership. it's a way to make sure that whatever they send to russia feeds back to them what, what they want. it takes a man suffering from a rare muscle disease has come all the way to russia for treatment. alan spencer
1:12 am
was told back at home in america, he would never walk again. since arriving in the russian city of pm in october, he's been up and about and he shared his story with us in an exclusive interview. i had to use this everywhere. i went when i was going, when there was a new car, sick on what without it hard to walk without alan spencer could have been dead by now or in a wheelchair or bed bound. that's what doctors back home in america told him 5 years ago. i used to use this all the time. it was absolutely necessary. i'm going to go now into scary people walking in an incredibly allen has escaped all those outcomes. when i started to notice a little something with my hands, they were going to go on like this. so that not some sound, right, but i didn't have any problem with strength, so i didn't think i heard anything wrong. 2012 came, i had a fall and i was like, whoa, that was unusual. 2014 i came again and i had a really bad fall. it was like,
1:13 am
ok, there's something wrong, something wrong happened to be a rare inflammatory muscle disorder known as inclusion, body myositis between $5.70 people per 1000000 have it. they said there's nothing we can do for it's completely untrue. what do you feel when you read that? will i wasn't as disappointed as you would think. my father had died of a form of a.o.s. and so i thought, well that's as a doctor said, good news and bad news. the good news is you're not going to die. the bad news is you're going to be totally respect for the vice president of time warner cable for west taxes as successful man allen had to quit his job in 2017. he simply wasn't able to work any more, that his ease was eaten away, his muscles, stealing his abilities and his life. but then he heard from a friend about a clinic in perm russia that could potentially treat him at 1st. he didn't take it
1:14 am
seriously. my friend andy had said in, in february there's going to be a wedding are about this clinic that i think might be able to help you. are you interested in this kind of like, well, not really. i didn't tell him the way to be perfectly honest with you. you know, i don't, i think is an american you're, you probably have a stereotype of what the breast in hospital looks like. if mayo says that nothing can be done. probably nothing can be got the sentiment e-mail gave my e-mail interest. the next day i got a, an e-mail back from the director. the c.e.o. actually of the clinic. they govern touch with me on wednesday and said if you come, we think we can help you. we are not sure to what degree, but we do believe that we can actually help you a glimmer of hope was born. but coming to russia in the middle of the college, 19, penn, jamming with borders shot and planes grounded, it seemed like mission impossible. back in may one of the gals from marty called
1:15 am
dandy and said, hey, how's your medical tourism, but building business doing, he said not so well that started the process of foreign ministry. got in touch with us. it took 17 months to finally come to russia and it was worth every single day of trying. he says, so they started me on this treatment of injections and infusions. and the neurologist put this magnetic field on my here, pulsing through. and what it does is it wakes up the neurons in the head, so they started to move in the wake of the muscles, my eye could actually swallow better, and i could talk a little easier if i would, you know, world, this is starting to actually work what turned out was we were getting this world class held help in this clinic in perm russia. if we can get travel to open up, i really intend to work within and you know, others to people here from america. it's a wonderful thing. i mean,
1:16 am
it shouldn't be a secret. here you go. wow, good job. the states is breaking up a grim, a pandemic records with the daily infection rate. now at 150000. some states are stepping up their covert response. texas, for example, is sending people text messages urging them to cancel holiday gatherings and in pennsylvania. masks are now obligatory even at home island overnight curfew has just been imposed by california's governor, though he's already been called breaching his own restrictions. santis kaleb open explains he's not the only politician to violate coronavirus measures. the centers for disease control are urging americans to visit their relatives for the holiday. they say it's better to stay home in this thanksgiving, yet another warning aims to protect public health. we're talking about intensifying the simple public health measures that we all talk about squaring, stating distance, avoiding congregate settings,
1:17 am
doing things to the extent that we can out those verses in those states across the country are imposing special regulations. but some of the politicians and officials who've been imposing stricter regulations are not exactly following their own rules . take, for example, the governor of california who has called for drastic action the notion of a curfew. now, before you jump in terms of your mindset, of whether it's a good idea or bad idea, we are assessing that as well. that very same politician was caught partying at an upscale restaurant with top lobbyist. see them tried to present it as an outside party. well, these photos obtained by a local t.v. channel show that that is just not true. also at the party were executives from the california medical association who insist the party was strictly adhering to, procedures. yet none of them seem to be wearing masks. u.s., senator diane feinstein has been out on the front lines urging americans to cover
1:18 am
their faces. but take a look at this issue with the only one not wearing a mask. then there's the mayor of chicago. she has been urging people to stay home and be safe. you must cancel the normal things, giving plants, but she has had no problem going out herself. right there, i'm sure. and then there is the d.c. mayor and her staff that attended biden's victory bash in delaware. even though the d.c. advisory lists delaware as a high risk state, nobody is happy about the restrictions, but people are even less happy about them when it seems that they don't apply to certain people. the very people who are imposing r.t. new york in a bid to give the global travel industry a boost, china's proposed takeover bid system using q.r. codes to story after the break
1:19 am
back geysers financial survival guide. housing bubble. oh you mean there's a downside to artificial mortgage? truth don't get carried away. that's cause report is your media a reflection of reality in a world transformed what will make you feel safe? isolation community? are you going the right way or are you being led? by what is true, what is in the world corrupted. you need to descend
1:20 am
to join us in the death or inmate in the shallows. welcome back. now, with countries around the world grappling with the 2nd wave of the pandemic, the prospect of an imminent vaccine has raised hopes. but there are also fears that poor countries will be priced out. discussed by the director of the international vaccine institute in the latest edition of going underground, the gates foundation, their research suggests that global covert debts will double if high income countries buy up the 1st 2000000 doses of any successful vaccine. do you agree with? that's a great study and we've been using it to advocate for something called codex kodak's
1:21 am
intends to purchase $2000000000.00 doses, and those doses will be provided to everyone and what cannot escape or the gates foundation paper you quoted says, is that if the 1st 2000000000 dose are taken without any consideration of equity, then there will be a doubling of go global covert deaths. hence, the reason why kovacs needs to be successful needs to be fully funded, needs to be funded beyond the 1st year into the 2nd year when we had, when we had previous coronaviruses research funding, dried up, which presumably might have made this vaccine reserves a much quicker this to have, i think with co that we benefited actually from the ebola crisis. everyone realized was that this is not the way to handle a pandemic. so they got together and they found it separate the coalition for epidemic preparedness innovations which dedicates itself to making vaccines for operate diseases. so within 2 weeks of the, you know, announcement of the sequence for corona virus or
1:22 am
a novel current of our snout code at 19 seppi have started funding companies. and so by, you know, the middle of march, we actually had a vaccine in a human being. so the world learned from the lesson of a bowl of saudi arabia is among the countries pushing for affordable widespread vaccination to tackle the pandemic. my colleagues asking taylor, discuss the prospects of a job, and they control the sea surrounding riyadh's hosting of the g. 20 summit. the saudi permanent representative to the united nations committed $500000000.00 to do that. and we also made this in contributions to the award telephone going zation, and we will continue to, to help in the development in with the companies that are working again. but he says that is being made of a lot to me. a person also said in his summit speech, that vaccines should be the property of all of humanity, and that russia is willing. and it's not the fast time. it's not thought to provide
1:23 am
countries in need with all vaccines. would saudi arabia be one of those and does it support a global program like that? we would certainly be a party to, to that effort. and if any vaccine is developed, it's other events will also be made available to the entire world. and your country, tasting of the summit, hasn't been without control of a say 10 optional note, that women's empowerment feat says predominantly on the t 20 agenda. despite the fact that activists have spared had to campaign for women's right on languishing in jail facing trial, that's that quote. what's your response to the odds? the strides that have been made by saudi arabia over the past few years are impeccable and unprecedented. we have more opportunities for women economically for women in the workplace, in the field of education, in many aspects of common life in places of leadership,
1:24 am
in government and in business. and it's got to be judged by the situation over a few individuals who have come across the law and have are being held under the procedures of the legal system. china is calling for a so-called. global follow will to combat the spread of covert 19 and allow cross border travel to resume. and as part of its plan, president xi jinping suggested a global system of q.r. codes. china has proposed a global mechanism for the meet recognition of health says if it's based on nucleic acid test results in the form of internationally accepted q.r. codes. we hope more countries will join this mechanism. china's been using q.r. codes to prove health status since february, the system's been questioned in the west on data privacy grounds. although europe has proposed similar schemes, including the idea of immunity passports in the u.k., it's an issue we put up for debate. these tests that we have a lot of false negatives,
1:25 am
a lot of false positives. and you are now better track and trace me weren't going in terms of this town or that, or this incredibly dangerous as i would for my safety. and you're seeing in the united states as well as across the globe. the people are starting to rise up saying enough stop, protecting me. i wouldn't live my life the way i'd choose. the reason that travels collapse is not the pandemic. it's the lockdowns. i mean, since march 12th, europe has not been able to fly to the u.s. and europe retaliated and we can't fly there and now we're living under this agree just situation where yeah, we once believed in the right to travel, but that's been denied to us. so many people being locked in their nation states right now. the answer is to is, liberalism is deliberate, travel, liberate and recognize human rights. again, there have been studies that show that the virus respond differently in different regions. that there are different conditions and different places on climate and so forth. so no, we don't want
1:26 am
a lot of or standards because global standards means that what walk down. in fact, this is just unbelievable. i really don't care about cases. i care about the death rate and the death rate is very slow. and again, we have to be very cautious with technology because once we turn the saw, it's very hard to turn off. they will never relinquish. i mean, passports were supposed to be temporary and really bristol stuck with them now brings you right up to date. thanks for your company here on r.t. . join me for more in holland.
1:27 am
join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to politics or i'm sure i'll see if it's been decades since the fall of spain's fascist regime. but old wounds still haven't and they seem to, you know, cells of newborn babies were torn from their mothers and given away and forced adoption to this day
1:28 am
mothers still search for grown children for their parents. maybe your group will be back by blue.
1:29 am
oh well what i would want to do with all of those we've got going tomorrow and if you could help wolf, i don't know. we're missing out on a lot of domain niigata. look for when i go up i got dog. i got the fact we are told i got my own, but if they're going with them over a guy with a top layer was in a what they believe that to have been well, let's look at the political aisle for that really
1:30 am
well and look for how much that i met, i want to see this field where i would be but i want to go and also both want to go and i go to the i will eventually talk with you when they go my do i come over and i knew that i mean i've been in a building up a window where we all talk about what a little kind of a.
