Hunger strike that had carried him to the brink of death as he insisted on being seen by his own doctors across russia his supporters had faced arrest as they protested in moscow. They chanted freedom to novella and let the doctors in the increasing repression of those protesters and the threat of rebranding of the opposition as extremists come. As president vladimir putin's approval numbers continued to sink. The world wondered last week what he would do with. The hundred thousand troops massed at the border with ukraine. In the end they were pulled back. that's rattling and the poll. Numbers are all intimately connected to the threat. Now post to the group led by mr putin's most effective critic alexei navalny. He's decided to end his son destroyed because he felt the russian authorities have sufficiently satisfied. His demand demand was to be allowed access to independent medical. Care arkady ostrovsky bizarre russia editor. What they have done is they took him into a civilian hospital. He was examined by non prison doctors. There's non prison. Doctors then passed on all the results of his tests to navarre on his own physicians. His own doctors told him that if he didn't stop his hunger strike now they would soon have nobody to treat a all and in his instagram post which he pass through his lawyers he also said he was very moved by all those people who declared hunger strike in solidarity with him.

Donald Trump Didn't Have to Be Irrelevant

"Trump is irrelevant. He gives interviews that. Don't make headlines. He sends out statements that become the butt of jokes. sure he's got the era of congressional republicans but no member of the gop has the influence or the audience to be trump's messenger. Which makes him irrelevant. But this segment isn't meant to mock him. It's meant to mourn what actually could have been because donald trump didn't have to be irrelevant. Seventy four million americans voted for him in two thousand twenty like him or not. His voice matters to some people he could've spoke out in real honest ways on important issues without fear of polls and push back that guided so much of his value system in the white house. It is ironic that on the one year anniversary of trump wondering whether people could inject bleach into themselves to kill the corona virus. He told the new york post quote. I'm all in favor of the vaccine strongly. Strongly recommend it. Because it's a real life saver quote. Now he says this where was he. Months ago when the vaccine i came out while he was still president and his words could have mattered. It was even clear by his refusal to help distribute the vaccines. He wanted credit for pushing companies to develop vaccines but he didn't seem to care if they ever got into people's arms and new york and dc centric republicans. The main new york post audience. Really the people who need to hear this message. Could this be a stunt to make himself look better or any positive side effect that is just that of side effect trump could have pushed americans to get vaccinated sooner. Could've told americans that vaccines are safe. But he's so preoccupied with attacking. Lebron james and mitch mcconnell that he missed his moment to save lives now should know. Trump's message is a good one the vaccine is a lifesaver and maybe skeptics will take his advice. Which would be great for all of us. But it's likely too little too late because he's irrelevant and let's not just limit. The vaccine. trump could be relevant if he spoke to other issues affecting his base for structure. Biden's two point. Two trillion dollar infrastructure plan would benefit large swaths of trump's base. It would provide jobs to rural and suburban communities. It would repair critical infrastructure. It would expand broadband access and trump has good reason to support the biden plan because he actually pitched a two trillion dollar infrastructure plan just last year but that's just not trump. of course he's not advocating for anything that might give joe biden a win even if it helps his base because it doesn't help him so he condemns the plan and that's been trump's problem since he came down that infamous escalator at trump tower to declare his candidacy for president. Trump doesn't want to help others if it doesn't help him he doesn't push vaccines because many in his base are against them. He doesn't push it infrastructure plan because it's a democratic plant and he's still out going on fox to claim that he won the election and putin who's currently killing alexei navalny in prison is an okay guy so perhaps he should be irrelevant but has claimed political power is the paralysis that elected republicans have in breaking away from him against what the trump base is against. Even if it's not rooted in fact you can't be for policies that a democrat would support. You have to be cool with anti-democratic impulses like voter suppression. That's where the republican party is. Right now cova conspiracies. Defending the capital riot has overblown or committed by antifa. Blm thinking republican election officials in states that correctly. Certified the vote for joe. Biden are traders and frantically pushing legislation to make sure that never happens again but when this is what the party is about. How else could they possibly win

"Alexei Navalny warned that his health is deteriorating rapidly. He's been on hunger strike for 20 days. He's protesting the lack of medical care while he's been in prison. Navalny's team has called for a nationwide protests on Wednesday. This is the same day President Vladimir Putin is set to address the nation. NPR's Lucy and Kim in Moscow was following all this and joins us now. Good morning, Lucy in Good morning. What can you tell us at this point about Navalny's condition? Well, the Russian prison service said. This morning, it's decided to move Navalny toe a prison hospital, so that does indicate he may be in poor health. But on the other hand, the prison service also says his condition is satisfactory and that a doctor sees him on a daily basis. So we still know very little about Navalny's exact condition, and that's why his doctors sounded the alarm bells. Over the weekend, They published the results of one of his blood tests on social media, and they said it showed he should be in intensive care and that he could die at any moment from cardiac arrest. The whole reason Navalny is on hunger strike is because he says he's being denied medical attention for back pain and numbness in his legs and hands, and he says that might be linked to a poisoning last summer that he blames on President Putin. A team of doctors tried to visit visit him over the weekend, but they were not let into the prison.

White House: Russia Will Face Consequences if Navalny Dies in Prison

"National security advisor Jake Sullivan told CNN Russia will pay if Putin critic and main opposition leader Alexei Navalny dies in prison. We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr Navalny in their custody is their responsibility, and they will be held accountable by the international community in terms of the specific measures that we would would undertake. We're looking at Variety of different costs that we would impose. And I'm not going to telegraph that publicly at this point, but we have communicated that there will be consequences if Mr Navalny dies, so you've communicated that, But at the top there, President Biden apparently didn't mention Navalny in his call with Putin this week. He certainly didn't say anything about it publicly and his remarks on Thursday, and Russian state media is touting. This is proof that Biden has given up on the issue so Why isn't President Biden demanding Navalny's release? Or at least again, at least getting him a doctor at every single opportunity? Way actually have made the judgment that direct communication to the Russian government on this issue. Including both how we see it. How our allies and partners see it and what might unfold. Should something terrible happened to Mr Navalny? Should he looked terrible Things, of course have already happened to him, but should he pass away? We have judged that rather than just make general statements publicly, the best way to deal with this issue is privately on through diplomatic channels direct to the uppermost levels of the Russian government. Let me ask one specific question. Is the potential summit with Vladimir Putin on the table if Alexei Navalny passes away in prison. Not gonna get into hypotheticals in large part Danna because there isn't currently a summit on the books. It's something we're talking about, and that's some it would have to take place, of course in the right circumstances. In a way that could actually move the relationship forward, But I'm not gonna get into hypotheticals about when or whether the summit would likely occur.

"I learned a huge amount from listening to diana. And i don't know about you but my feelings. Over the course of our conversation alternated between feeling moved and impressed by her bravery the raver of her colleagues and the bravery of people who went to the streets to protest the putin regime and feeling dejected. And depressed about what diana sees as the rather limited prospects for meaningful change in the near future in russia protests that arose after navalny's revelations about one of putin's palaces were the largest that we've seen in years and they reflect diana thanks real genuine public dissatisfaction with the way the government is doing its job and with the extent of corruption that exists in the government at the same time. Diana was quick to add that most people in russia don't spend their time thinking about systematic corruption. They think about the limitations in their quality of life and the problems in their economy. Much like people do everywhere else in the world similarly when it comes to the status of the press i was moved and impressed by the way that diana describes her role and that of her colleagues in reporting the truth and continuing to do so no matter what the consequences might be yet i was dispirited by her observation. That most people in the public don't bother to listen to the news that she reports and her own honest self assessment in which she compared to the status of the free russian media to that of a token russian jewish general in the senior ranks of the soviet military. My ultimate take away from the conversation. Is that those alternating feelings of being inspired and being depressed are what happens when you get the truth from somebody doing her job under very difficult circumstances clearly diana would not do what she does if she did not believe that it had a purpose and a goal and that purpose and goal went beyond just telling the truth but also extended to making permanent change in russia. Here's hoping that her aspirations are as accurate as her investigative reporting tries to be until the next time. I speak to be careful. Be safe and be well.

"Politician. But he's amazing in propaganda in delivering his message the way how he's putting and how he's delivering. This message is going out of this of elite liberal media from you. That's the biggest achievement of navalny's doing it's really fascinating because if i'm understanding you correctly what you're saying is that your paper in and the other small number of papers are essentially what we would call in. The united states tokens like general. David abramovich struggling ski. Who was kind of. You're saying a token jew when people could point to look him up. I see him with his twice awarded title hero of the soviet union with his medals. So you're tokens and therefore you can be tolerated because you're not seeing as posing a great threat because not that many people are listening to the story is that you were telling. But then what made nevada distinctive is that. He's a skilled disseminator of information. So he takes the story that you've already covered and what he did. Have the effect of getting people to look up and take notice might not have taken notice previously and that made him a threat. Do you ever worry that. If you're if you started to reach a broader audience. Then you wouldn't be useful tokens anymore. And then you would be endanger our slogan his writing about the facts which everyone else is silent about. And i think for a lot of people we are the last hope and i think we need to do the job. Wish we're doing daily. We can not do it. One thing that might help me at least understand how you do. It is when you're thinking about covering a given story do you find yourself asking yourself. How will the government react to this or do you think to yourself. Our paper is recognized as critical. And so we can say whatever we want and we don't have to worry on a minute to minute. Basis that reporting the wrong story will land us in trouble. I you know. If i'll be thinking every time before thinking about the story because the government will probably will not publish anything. That's why that's why. I think of the main concern is is the story. Exclusive is a story. Interesting is raising a real serious topic. What we are doing the medicare for putting the goods together. They careful and think in a lost few us. I'm spending more time some time with our a lawyer reading and trying to find the ways. How wants to deliver this information. But you know that after this you'll be in court how to deliver it that it will be not like immediate case for for the court and i think i spent more time with our lloyd sometimes without journalists discussed we'll be right back one of the aspects of the coverage of novell me that has been confusing for lots of people watching from the outside. Is that his own. Politics are not necessarily the ones that people on the outside. Imagine that would be the politics of someone who's a critic of putin for example. Novelli seems to be a serious nationalist and indeed amnesty international shocked and surprised. A lot of people by withdrawing his status as a prisoner of conscience in their category on the ground that he had in the past said things in a nationalist vein that they considered to be offensive or discriminatory. Tell us a little bit first about the back story here. What are navan these political views. And where do they fall with. Respect to mainstream russian opinion on the question of nationalism i'm t- muslim auntie. The writers were guest workers anti guestworkers. All that kinda stuff okay. He was never saying a received little. If as i do remember russia for russians. But i think it was kinda like what the lights you will not say such things in polite society. Yes but a long time ago. The people are changing in lost fuse. He never apologized for what he said. He never mentioned this fact. He never said that he was wrong. but in the less use the waco he talks changed and he never was accused in the last years in the same kind of things. Did he do this on purpose. Just you can get in his brain right in or if you thinks about probably understood that it's not the correct things to say. One of the main accuse asians off navalny from kremlin is that she doesn't have any suggestions how to lead concert with the future he's program was published and he's doesn't sound like something outrageous. It's kinda relatively democratic program or what he would like to do in house. It would like to change this country improving the situation in you know in bureaucracy and all this corruption because those sound like the issues that most people are most bothered by that. The government seems to be pretty corrupt and spend a lot of money on itself and at that effects stem on a daily basis. You know this is. Unfortunately i think that's not so much true that the people thinking about the corruption on a daily basis. If you ask what they're bothered about the corruption will be not the biggest priority in that. What will the biggest priority. What what is your sense. What the biggest priority is. I think right now will be rising. The prices of food quality of medical care the quality of life in general. The problem is a people understand this particular small problems are you know. For example here is a very big clinic local clinic s but y it's bad wide so poll why there is no more than equivalent to that. They don't put together with the fact that that's the because of the corruption because this money was stolen from somewhere a the food prices that the growing like crazy even on tv. They're saying that you know this is. The third time with putin is making the order to stop prices to grow how you can tell. The price is not to grow. but why they're growing. That's not the people putting together you know for a long time. It was very funny. Watch the russian news. Because i news was about how everything is better in ukrainian then it was about how everything is bad in europe. Then it was how everything is bad. Sorta in the united states and somewhere else everywhere is bad then becoming the news very modest how. It is good somewhere in russian. The people if you'll be telling them that everything is better than america. They will believe you if you because they've never visited america if you'll be telling them the different thing is awful in europe they will believe you because whenever in europe but you can tell them all the time. How would it surround them because these they can check. Oh they're telling me that. That's great. And i see that it's it's not good a toll donna. Let me ask you a last question in light of that Rather depressing picture that. You've you've painted if people are gradually coming to realize that things around are are crumbling. And if you can't hide that fact from them.

"Were just walking and showing the here and they don't like what's going on scene from the outside that's really fascinating and of course very sad as well. A gloomy protests is one where the protesters don't have a realistic expectation that they can change the underlying state of affairs and that implies that the government efforts to suppress the protests were effective. Right that if they have communicated to ordinary people who are brave enough to go into the streets that you're just doing this symbolically. It has no chance of succeeding. Then that would imply that. From a purely machiavellian perspective of preserving his own power. Putin has handled this whole process with the return of navalny very successfully is that is that your interpretation. It was not necessary to be so cruel it was not no need in such a cruel tick but the whole goal of this was just to threaten the people who came true threat on the people who were thinking maybe to come and to send them. The message don't move if you'll not move. Maybe you'll be more or less a kate and you know a lot of people afraid to call you know. In saint peter's how many people came ten twenty. Maybe twenty five thousand. the most. The population of the city is five million in moscow. It was the same percent of the population. it's nothing it's not so much and if you'll ask the majority of people who were not there maybe we are thinking that you know the these protests are useful but will not go ourselves and what can these twenty thousand crowd with nothing no arms nothing what they can achieve just to show that they don't like it and that's all they helpless weak helpless. What do you think. And what do other russians from you. Speak to think about the possible effects of sanctions placed either on put neuron. People are him In the past and also in the present in a consequence of the navalny imprisonment do those sanctions seem to you meaningful. And do they send a message of support and will be likely to have any effect at all on the putin regime government or do you see them as rather too little too late or empty. Empty symbolic unlikely to affect Nowhere surrounded by sanctions since two thousand fourteen. If i'm not mistaken. And they're more and more. And i think that people are just getting confused about ordinary people. The jets confused which sanctions will wear and for what particular reason people a long time ago confusing who is sanctioning award and at the message on. Tv is not that america or european union at sanctioning particular people who are involved in nevada case like you know from investigative committee from the police this other people who are involved in this all the time on tv either is a send a message that these sanctions against russia not against particular people and a lot of people believe in this you know that to audiences in russia elect probably everywhere else. There is a tv audience. Which believes what first second and third ano- is saying and then there is internet ordinance which is a advanced but i think a big majority of the population of russia is using internet. But if you'll see how they're using they're not reading political news. They're finding the recipes for cooking for meeting for everything like these to send each other flowers it at thrown eq one. They're not reading political news. That's why would they were told mtv. That raises a really fascinating. An important question that i think In the west don't have a good understanding of for the most part including people who try to follow news about russia and that is what is the practical reality of press freedom in russia today. I mean we understand that. Russia's ranked very low on the press freedom index. I looked it up. And as if twenty twenty it was one hundred forty nine out of one hundred and seventy nine countries so that's a pretty low But here you are Your paper novaya. Gazeta does publish. I also read online. I don't know if this is true. That six of your journalists were murdered in the past twenty years. You'll tell me if that's correct or not. But what is the data day way that you can think about what press coverage you're allowed to provide what you're allowed to say what will provoke consequences. How do you do your job. Every day The number is correct. now about how a will give. That's a pretty high threat that's a. That's a very high risk position that you're in you're by definition. It extremely brave person. I can start with a joke in soviet union many many years ago of course the soviet union was accused. The jews are treated very bad institution. Yet that's why in ever agonies asian in hirings. Because he should. There was at least one. Very important jew and For example in the military in headquarters of the army they was getting out there. Goose give the general ski and when anyone was trying to accuse soviet union on treating the jews bad and not allowing them to get some ceiling in their career and everything. This there were saying. Oh what we have kenya ski what you we're not treating jews ben you see how cry his rant Sometime i feel like these general dragoon sqi novak gazeta exist as guinean author goose. Keep to say that. What are you talking. There is no freedom. Finish plenty of freedom. We have their their their bet they're online. They're published the problem. Is that for a long time. It was a popular number. Eighty six percent eighty six percent of the population who supporting putin. I think now. This number is lower but there was a lot of jokes ball. There's an it's still high means but this eighty six percent. They don't read novaya gazeta. They don't listen to off more scope. They are not on facebook they even not in a telegram they in a Social media called. Nicholas your classmates. There is nothing about politics there. This is the majority of the population russians and the problem of the media. Kind of like novak gazeta. We don't know how to talk with them. We are not reaching the biggest ordinance.

"Navalny better known as alexei was arrested on his re entry to russia. This was his first visit back to russia after being poisoned months before an attempted murder which journalists have linked to president vladimir putin's intelligence services. A russian judge ordered navalny to spend more than two years in a russian prison labor colony and his arrest and imprisonment have set off some of the widest protests. Russia has seen in years not to mention a movement for sanctions in the west. Now not only is a complex figure. He is portrayed in the west as a staunch advocate of democracy and press freedoms and in many senses is yet. It's also true that in recent months there's been renewed scrutiny of some of his nationalist and even xenophobic public comments from about a decade ago. Amnesty international decided on the basis of those comments to remove his designation as prisoner of conscience. Because they say you have to not only stand up for good ideas. But also not express hate to qualify. This is a complex and tricky issue as is the question of what nevada's return and the protests mean russia to better understand it and to hear more about how the news is covered by the free russian press today to the extent that it still exists. We decided to interview one of russia's leading journalists. Diana kochav is the editor in chief of the saint petersburg euro of novaya gazeta a russian newspaper known for its investigative journalism. Three decades ago she helped start the first post-soviet independent daily newspaper. She carries out her job in a country where independent investigative journalism carries real personal danger. She's here to talk with us about navalny. And also about the press and the meaning of protests for putin's russia. Thank you diana for being here. I want to begin with a question. That may seem very obvious to you but for american listeners. Even those you're listening to the news carefully is perhaps a little less clear and that is why does vladimir putin treat alexei navalny as the kind of threat that he appears to be treating him as why not just let him come back to the country and more or less ignore him on his arrival in russia. I think letting the putin believes that. Russia is absolutely surrounded by any means. And it's not that he just hates him because he doesn't believe never knew something he absolutely trusts in the papers which are put on his table every morning. You know the guy doesn't use internet. He trusts on the papers which his secretaries or someone is prepared him and bringing this why. That's his picture over reality. And he absolutely believes that. Russia is surrounded by enemies and that navalny is one of them and his foreign agent and paid by and everything if someone is attacking you it's because he's an enemy and he wants to destroy him and his country let's imagine in his worldview. Nevada is a paid agent does put an actually worry that his own support in the country is so weak that navanly's could gain substantial number of adherents on the ground is putting so nervous about his own grip on power. You know I cannot say what's in the head of fusion. i can just tell you a few days ago. We had instant pittsburgh the meeting. With our governor of saint petersburg it is much lower level or for democracy. But we were talking about the last riots which were instant petersburg and moscow. In the end of january. Beginning of february. Were a lot of journalists were beaten and arrested but his reaction was maybe the north of jones. Nobody will just pretending to be a journalist. He's reality and his picture of what's happening in. His city is absolutely different. From what's happening in the streets. And when i mentioned the police is beating journalists. And you're telling this to the guy and he's like no you're wrong and i think the problem is that this is partially put in fold that he surrounded himself with people who who are not delivering him. The right information looks like installing times when the people were saying all you know the czar doesn't know what really happens. The everyone is in a prison. Several one is tortured in log. And styling doesn't note here is more or less the same situation. Because he doesn't understand it from my put if you can i ask. You referred just now to the events of february. The the public response to navan returned to the country and to his arrest. Can you say more about what you think really happened. And also about whether the people who were turning out there were doing so because they really actively support navalny or because they're frustrated with other aspects of putin's government or whether they're worried about underlying economic issues what drew people into the streets of what was happening in moscow. Instant pitas book was unheard for a long time because for a long time since two thousand eleven and twelve when the a lot of for protests in moscow. incident peter's. Nothing like this happened. There were a lot of people and they were much younger. Audience and the reaction of the state was different from ten years ago. It was much more suppressive. It was much more. Police arose guardia. A more you know all this enforcement power and the much rueda. The much people arrested of there was like the whole city. I'm talking about sin. Pitas book was paralyzed absolutely paralyzed. Because they closed most of the streets. You gonna go. Even if you're going to the theater to see him anywhere and what was interesting. It was absolutely different atmosphere. I remember the protests. Ten years go and there was a lot of slogans. A lot of humor a lot of jokes but these times the kinda gloomy atmosphere and this time that people came on the streets to show even not to support navalny. They wanted to show that they seek that tide of this and they don't want to be treated like that but the atmosphere was kind. This protests were kinda gloomy because the people. It feels like the people didn't have so much to say anymore. They.

"We're glad to have you here at 8 10 President Biden says he's rebuilding and resetting America's relationships around the world in his first foreign policy address, delivered at the State Department today. President says America is back and credits the rank and file at state for making that happen. The president says he plans to partner with allies on pressing matters such as the pandemic global warming threats to democracy and human rights. He saved his toughest words for Russia. The days of the United States rolling over The face of Russia's aggressive actions interfering with our elections. Cyberattacks poison Its citizens are over police crackdown on demonstrators in Moscow and elsewhere in Russia this week after a court in the capital sentenced opposition leader Alexei Navalny to 3.5 years in prison. Disenchantment over inequality was targeted by the Valley Inn, a new in a YouTube video released shortly after his detention. And seen more than 106 million times. It showcased Vladimir Putin's $1.3 Billion Palace complex in southern Russia. Navalny accuses Putin's forces of poisoning him with the nerve agent Nova Chalk. In August, He was taken to Germany, where doctors are credited with saving his life. We speak with international journalist Dana Lewis tonight he's host of the podcast backstory with Dana Lewis. He served his Moscow correspondent for NBC News and Moscow bureau chief of Fox News. First question. Are these protest? In Russia different than the previous ones. Dimitri I don't think we've ever seen anything like that. Certainly not the breads of them in 11 time zones in every single city. You can imagine. It's very cold. I mean, minus 60 Celsius, and I think that what has changed and I thought a lot about this because I've been covering Russia for a long time. These protests are really against President Putin and up until now, there's been, You know, a lot of dissatisfaction in Russia about the economy and About pension payments and about different issues. But these are targeting the president himself. And after 20 years, you know, Putin in general has always deferred. A lot of this in blamed other people. But in the case of this corruption, video and Alexei Navalny and he owns it, and people are blaming him directly. Most of these protests have been pretty peaceful to begin with. And then after the sentencing of Alexei Navalny this week, I mean, I would say that the tactics of the police were suffocating the numbers of police on the street. I mean, I've never seen that many people in Moscow that many police Oman as they're called on the streets. Chasing down anybody that they saw. That may have been a protester. How much of a threat are these protests to Vladimir Putin? You say they're all about him this time. I mean, he is, I think plunging and popularity now. There have been some polls, especially with youth. And Putin is not the 80% man that he was years ago. You know, he may be down in 20% and 30% with some of the people. There is a growing anger, and I think that this trial was extremely important. I mean, this was a kangaroo court. But it was a show trial when the Valley was put on trial this week, and he called Putin out. I mean, it's never happened before. This is how it worked. They send one to J. Failed to intimidate million's, he said. On the Nova char chemical attack, he said, using the FSB, the federal security Service, Putin attempted to commit murder. I'm not the only one Many know this already and many others will, and this is what is driving the thieving little man in the bunker. Crazy that's unprecedented in Russia for that to be directed towards President Putin. It's incredible, brave thing for Navalny to say. Unfortunately, I don't think he's ever going to get out of prison for a very, very long time, because now they're bringing more fraud charges against him. So in addition to the 2.5 years, this preposterous, you know, charged that they've given him for violating his probation when he was in a coma in Germany. Now they're bringing on the fraud charges against him, and he keeping face another 10 years. Another 15 years international journalist Dana Lewis. He's covered Russia for a long time. He's host of the podcast backstory with Dana Lewis on Skype. See if the caps have a bit of a challenge on their hands tonight, stay with him A fresh new look at.

"I've three out of moscow and You know they just stamp the passport and five seconds with the message. Sort of get out of here. Well you know what went on building too because again. There are millions of people in russia today who reject putin and everything. He stands for the kleptocracy that the dictatorship corruption and who wants russia to become a normal modern democratic european country. And i know this day will come and everything that we do has as its goal to try to bring that day closer. Putin won't even say alexi of his name. What does it say to you. That navalny was arrested immediately as soon as he landed and directed the plane to a different airport So the presumably that that could happen in a more expedient way what does it say to you about Vladimir putin state of mind. Well i think this is frankie more questions psychoanalyst's than than you know to a politician or political analysts. It's clear that there's something that there's something almost mystical going on. I mean vladimir putin goes to any length and so do his all his cronies and his key officials by the way Just today the speaker of the Russian parliament You know he he. He said as a person they sent to us from germany. Or something like that. I mean putin called the finally the patient of the clinic and berlin. I mean you can't make this thing up. Almost they have a mystical fear of actually pronouncing his name. More exciting to analysis looks to me. Why is putin's afraid of him. Because you know in this sort of artificial Artificial construct artificial image of the kremlin propaganda has put forward. You know putin is this a militant powerful popular leader and there's nobody else in the russian political scene that even comes close And i guess it comes from this that they did not want to admit that there actually is an alternative that there is opposition in russia. But you know what there is if we can see this by. The thousands of people who've been coming out to street demonstrations in the past several years including a massive unprecedented protests. Just in the past few months in recent city of barrels. We see this and the humiliating that pro-putin candidates have suffered recently in local elections even to technical spoilers once they remove real opponents from the ballot. Which usually do we'll certainly seat from the public. Attention that has surrounded alexei navalny's return and i hope by the weather. This public attention also leads to some reaction in western countries including canada just before he returned home to russia alexei navalny discussed with his colleagues the fact that western democracies are not using the sanctions provisions that they do have for targeted personal sanctions against ski cronies and kiani guards of the putin regime who who are stealing from the people of russia and then coming and stashing away those stolen money in the west valley in fact..

Usually have a plaque next to them with information about the artwork in one lobby in France though that plaque instead ask a question do you recognize me the current caretakers of the nineteenth century oil painting by Nico? Who so are on the hunt for its rightful owner fairly posh is that caretaker? He's the director of the World Center for Peace Liberty and human rights in France where the painting is being stored feel. Can you start off by describing the painting to me? Is Because With a weaver little river with trees. The weaver and the someone is waiting around the wisdom I understand this painting has taken quite a journey since it was painted in the nineteenth century Can you tell me about that? So the painting was badly in the West are enough of France. During the civil. Presumably soldier stole the painting possibly from a home in France. Yes it's probably. The case and the painting was. In Germany at his home. and. His son was five years old at this time. It is ided with the mobile to get the frame for this. Into keep the painting at home in their. Living Room. I. Know You went on quite the journey to retrieve the painting from Germany how did it end up with you? The French embassy they lean asked the centerpiece to prison services painting because. The some of. Japanese soldier would like to give the painting back to France and the white on onus of his painting. So it's better to a present the painting inside the place wherever visitors could help us to know muffing votes of the painting and perhaps. To find the way for owners were you surprised get word that you were going to pick up this painting. Yes. I was very surprised because we don't have any object like that I shouldn't get so I think that's a son also Japan. SO SAUDI GIVE BACK FREE Now, I understand the painting is sitting in Verdone at the World Center for Peace Liberty and human rights where you are has anyone who's seen the painting said that they actually recognize it. No one has a we can I served a painting, but we have some information to others of Nikola saw. Has Been Heightened during the Second World War in a piano inside? Jude. Hose So. So you have heard about another who so painting that was hidden in a piano, isn't a Jewish home in France at the time? Yes a true to paintings. That's really interesting we. Attain true to have more information about that in order to know if the painting that we have in our. Santa. was in the same family are not that the two of painting of Nicaragua. How much is the painting worth that you have on display between? And five tells us that doesn't sound very much considering its nineteenth century who so painting the why is it valued so low? No. That's about of difficulty because. When the opinion is. Has Impotent you many people are knows it but when the painting is not Louisville we don't have many people that know vis painting. So it's hard shoe to find out more information about that's. Philippe Hunch is the director of the World Center for Peace Liberty and Human Rights Vat. Don France thanks so much for speaking with us. Franken Cohen. A library is a great place to borrow book for free, but it's also a lot more than that card holders at the Yarra. Plenty Regional Library and Melbourne. Australia have been learning that firsthand when Cova I closed the library in March Librarians, grab their phones and started dialing. They're older patrons just to check up on them and say, hello, they ended up calling every one of their members over seventy. There were eight thousand of them. Now Melbourne is in a second lockdown. So the library is calling around again Jane Cowl is the CEO of Yarra plenty regional library in Melbourne. Jane, where did this idea I? Know you call it the carrying calls program where did it come from? So, one of the key things that we knew when we were closed is that older patients who were in a very hard lockdown they weren't too shopping note have the food delivered they're only allowed outside for one hour a day. They didn't really know how to connect without digital library. We knew that they didn't have some of them didn't have the tech skills. So we thought how do we connect with them and we thought the telephone So you started making calls. Now where we actually do believe in giving you some choice. So did a mile all of our eight thousand members over seventy to let them know that we would give you a call and you could opt out if you didn't think he needed one. I wanted the coal and one of the kind things I stars an amazing things was two weeks seen. We got an email from a few patron saying you said you were going to call. You haven't a cold waiting by the phone. That was in the W. so being librarians, we did start from the. We actually been sort of mixed it up a bit and we give them a call. So what are these calls actually like how did the librarians go about it? So, we did develop a script because one of the casings that we were finding was that people were lonely you know. And we're not counselors. So it was very important that we have all of the information that they might need, but the key thing was. We. Let them know that we're from the library and do they need anything they often said? We're fan but it's great to have a cool in the coles lasted sometimes for thirty minutes. And one of the key things that came out of this was that hell only people were and how isolated they were and how in lockdown your social circle shrinks so much that just hearing from somebody else was too such a joy to people and to have a chat. So we did help a ninety three year old download her first day book. And we set up the device for her over the phone. So you know a lot of take help how to log in to the library had download the APP on whatever device they had if it was a phone or tablet, why do you think it's important for library members to get these calls? I think it is the social isolation. One of the key things that really came out from all of the calls was how much s senior patrons missed the library. It's OK now library to smile at a stranger and say, hello, you not the creepy dude or the creepy older couple. Even if you do it in the library, it's acceptable. You couldn't do that into shopping center. So I think that that real connection to other people and that social. Connection happens in libraries and they were missing it totally the other aspect of it was going to remember that that was a shock to all of our staff to to have to work from home. It was really a two way phone call. So this `isolation and learning this is particularly people who live alone is really having a lot of impact on people. Are you working from home? I've been working from home since March. Yes. I do live a line. You'll my caring coal carol. That's Jane Cowl. CEO of Yarra Plenty Regional Library in Melbourne Australia. Her staff is also using their own pets to help out young kids during the pandemic we have a wonderful service where you can read to acne peak. Struggling rate.
