Will Putin Feel the World Closing in Around Him? David Falt Explains
"With the number of deaths that have happened thus far to Russian soldiers, which is estimated is more than we saw in the entire ten years. They were in Afghanistan. And with the images that are now coming out for the horrors that have been committed, they're in Ukraine, will start to feel the world closing in around him. In other words, not having the support of the world not having the support of his country. I think the support of the world is of secondary concern to him. I think that he feels disenfranchised already. And I think that that has been something that's been in the making for a very long time. And I think what pivoted him into a real aggression I would say and starting to build up for his own type of control of world events was that the fact that he was totally cut out of coalition that air bombarded Libya and took out Gaddafi I think that started his grievance that he wasn't in the fall that it wasn't read in and part of it in any way shape or form and so his next play was to start backing Assad in a more direct military way with iron bombardment and viral bombs and he had a perfect benchmark from grocery, which he made basically made a parking lot out of. And that's what we've seen in Aleppo and other places where we were also present from 2012 and forward.
We Need to Get Serious About Sanctions... and So Does Europe
"Know, if you go back to the war between France and Spain and the UK, in 1701, guess what? They were still importing Bordeaux wine into the UK, even though the UK was at war. With France and they were doing this by just sending it to Spain and slapping stickers on the bottles, right? And then shipping them in Spanish casks and pretending that the bourdeaux wine came from Spain. I mean, this is what happens. In Venezuela today, I have sources that tell me the ships are going to the Caribbean. They change the paperwork and the flags, in the Caribbean, and then they send the ships on to Singapore where the paperwork gets changed again. The flags get changed again and then eventually it makes its way to China. In other words, there's all these workarounds. And there's a whole bunch of middlemen in the process, and so that's the problem. If we're going to get serious about sanctions, we need to put them all in there and then we need to actually enforce them and we need to do that in conjunction by the way with the EU, which is still getting its natural gas from Europe, like that makes sense. You know, look, I get it. It's going to be painful. And we all need to recognize that. I mean, it's going to be very painful for Europe, which in turn is painful for us because they are a major trading partner with us. And they're going to have to face the fact that they relied on Russia stupidly, frankly, that was completely naive for their natural gas 45% of their supply. That's going to change. What does it do? It shoots natural gas prices higher. And they rely on natural gas. And it shoots energy prices across the board higher, which means more and more inflation in Europe, more and more inflation back here at home, less trade, et cetera. You understand, like this is a domino effect, and it's really just so darn unfortunate because we knew what Putin was capable of. We knew it from Aleppo. In Syria, we knew it from Chechnya, and somehow people are just waking up to how bad he really is and what's really happening.

"Thanks for taking my call. This is a fascinating subject to me. I grew up in San Francisco, where there was a big Irish community and I was very familiar with Irish wakes, which are raucous and celebratory of life as a deceased. That was exposed in traveling to something I've never seen before. We sent Hanoi Vietnam and visited the museum of ethnology. And out back they had several exhibits, one of which was a house. Large enough, I suppose for 30 or more bodies. But the really fascinating and shocking piece of it was around the outside of this long house were carved images of men and women, obviously in plug around Aleppo, the men had huge palaces, women, a lot of them were pregnant and it looked like an orgy to me. I don't know if it was really an orgy, but I've since read a little more about this place and they are symbolizing fertility and birth, which I assume completes the circle of life. I don't know, but I had never seen anything like this before it was fascinating. So this was a burial house, and it was decorated with all of these symbols and demonstrations of fertility. Lori, that sounds like an interesting insight into the culture in Vietnam..

His mission, he says, is to make films about the Syrian war. He fled to Turkey sneaking back into Syria to document civilians under bombardment. But he never spoke about the torture he suffered not even to his family. He gave his first public account in the court in Germany. Last month, He sat just a few feet away from the former Syrian officer, Anwar Roseland, who ordered that torture. He's charged with 58 counts of murder at least 4000 cases of torture in the prison where Roslyn was in command. My odds. Testimony is critical to establish a charge of one particularly shocking brutality, which the German judges had him recount that he was sexually assaulted with a wooden baton and make case Wass.

I don't feel it In the moment When I was speaking, I feel it. After the phantom pains came back the psychological wounds triggered by his testimony. They buy the the feeling off the pain.

"Some firing guns into the in a televised speech to mark the restoration of government control over Aleppo the Syrian president said his forces would be relentless in their offensive to flush out the lost rebel bastion in it live in northwest Syria in the market that really if you had to be what it did the battle to liberate it live in Aleppo countryside is ongoing regardless of some of the empty bottles of sound coming from the north as well as the battle for liberating all students with crushing terrorism and achieving stability we are fully aware that this liberation does not mean the end of war no the collapse of schemes were demise of terrorism nor does it mean that the enemies have surrendered but it certainly means wiping their noses in the dust as a prelude for complete defeat sooner or later what's a president Bashar al Assad let's speak to Lina hot and who is the head of the Middle East and North Africa program at Chatham house independent foreign policy think tank come this is president Assad's first televised address in quite some time I should we read some significance into that well it's so as far as he's concerned paving the way for a declaration of military victory he is planning to take back all areas that are currently under rebel control and he obviously feels that he has achieved enough for him to appear and address of this year in people again also I would not treat this as a positive sign for the people of it fortunately and what are we then to make all of the the continuing offensive on a delayed attempts at ceasefire for cease fires have have fallen on deaf ears and it does look as though it he is going to press on with the help of Russia yes absolutely they are determined to at the very least take over the main highway that extends from Damascus to add up through it lip which they've already achieved which is called the M. five highway the second one they want to take is called the M. full which is the one extending all the way to Turkey this is the one through which troubles as well as people living in that district gets a lot of their supplies through so if the regime manages to take that over and then it's completely cuts off at lip basically from the outside world and the of course can pave the way for a military victory over the governorate it is significant that we heard in that in that little extra from the televised speech him saying that this doesn't mean that we will have eliminated all of these people of the terrorists as he refers to them that there is an acknowledgement that the battle could still go on the ground even if he can claim victory over the territory well I said is doing this in order to really serve his own interests and justify further crackdowns one thing that some people might be thinking about this is that if a sub manages to take over and let them perhaps this you recall flicked would be drawn to a close because then he would have won but this is erroneous because also has continued to oppress people in all the areas that his regime has taken back from rebels such as and slogans yeah incidents off and justice our own going and with that all kinds of secure incidents are happening many attacks against regime targets on others are happening in these areas so when I saw it says we will likely continue to see a presence of terrace he's basically doing this in order to justify these kinds of crackdowns the part targeting ordinary people it's not just that he's cracking down on former fighters he's cracking down on anyone who he says art rose in opposition to him so he is in a way safeguarding future injustices what about the issue about the idea of humanitarian corridor is not likely to fall on deaf ears just very briefly I don't think it will happen unfortunately because as far as Russia and the regime are concerned they think they're doing well in this campaign achieving their own goals so why should they compromised and unfortunately they regard all the people and accept as being terrorists even though this is inaccurate there are maybe ten thousand terrorists in at the three and a half million up maybe civilians enough coffee is the head of the Middle East and North Africa program at Chatham house thanks for joining us now to a story about a twenty seven year old Egyptian researcher called Patrick Zaki who was studying in Italy at the university of Bologna when he returned to the Egyptian capital Cairo some days ago he was arrested at the airports on charges of homing national security he is a researcher on gender and human rights for the human rights group the P. R. I. P. on the Egyptian initiative for personal rights I've been speaking to on there Abdel rock on the director of the civil liberties union at the same organization that took our how you doing this seventh of February he was detained briefly at the airport right away he was coming as you know from pulling your city in thirty whereby he is working on his master's degree and he was on his way out of the current reports to his hometown one square north card he was detained briefly in the airport and then was moved to one of the state's security facility he's been there the state security facility around ten hours blindfolded interrogated repeatedly subject to extract talk and different forms of torture verbal abuse and many others and then he was more to the public persecution in in his hometown the basically faced him with a long list of accusation the three major accusation he's facing the first accusation of disseminating Colson use under worse inside think unlicensed protest and then the most for any income alarming accusations them that the celebrating terrorist car him when his own Facebook account is a public execution we're going to his praetorians detention for fifteen days then we submitted an opinion on the decision of the prosecutor but whilst basically refused it lost seventy and then the next seventy twenty second of February he's going to see his judge to order either anyone you with his pre trial detention were basically carnies him you know all of the treatments that was meted out to him because you have had a chance to speak to him directly is that right he told us and he pulled the prosecutor for the week rival the judge lost sovereignty they are all full to fight charges even any ports of his one detention is to fight he was detained kind reports but then with a report that was presented to the prosecutor it is mentioned that he was defending his hometown the most work so he was the things kidnapped it disappeared from our subjected to torture and the something that we don't have any trace in the headquarters of the state security or to this to the prosecutor unable to this loss and then he reported this a gate to the judge that he viewed his appeal last Sunday or negligible that you're from prosecutor is will blushed to investigate his claims or being torture kidnapped and disappear and in your view given that you are saying that these charges against him all baseless what do you think is going on here this government is completely paranoid about anything the complete some social media I think has been working with all sins a couple of years ago and through of these two years he he became very popular in social media his face is is is acting I number thousands of followers and as you probably know the social media space is the only space that is still relatively free from the you're closer to serve you all the other media outlets are even directly controlled by the state security or simply blocks so that's why anyone who would gaining momentum all four doors on Facebook he basically appears one thirty in our office the security I believe what happened at the the followed his page the the basic the idealized the political message she is disseminating which is pro democracy according crafter form for gender equality and also he is he is reporting on the day to day but within the country and they have been waiting for him on that he comes back his case is not an exception by the way as we are speaking there are thousands of people you are serving sentences or simply pre trial detention pines basically because material the rules published on social media accounts what's your biggest concern about the way in which this particular case is being conducted by the authorities we have cases of people who spend up to two years being held an Egyptian prison because of pre trial detention we are sure that his own charges with multi stands in me free and fair trade but our major concern that he would not even make it to the final trial and he would spend one someone's in the pre trial detention is it your view that he is in more danger because he's an Egyptian national absolutely absolutely after the Italian parliament and the Italian MF eight announced that will concern the first thing that the Egyptian and if he said that he's objections that this is what all the fuss this is basically on the additional reason for being words you know Patrick Zaki what how do you think he is bearing up under the circumstances that he finds himself in because they own man someone who is full full full ism it has been a pleasure and joy to have him around and and and our office and I'm sure I'm actually sure that he's being very will it inside the prison but at the end of the day the prison is a prison he doesn't belong in there we demand his immediate unconditional release or you can go back to his university continue whatever he started this interview is going to be broadcast around the world what is it that you would like to tell the world about what's happening I'd like to to the words that what ever the are doing with actually make a difference beer minds that there are thousands of Egyptian youth who are spending their twenties behind bars for no reason for no reason we are not attached to any terrorist organization yeah even as the most all of them or be pool looks like a young man in the street from them or in the streets your call Washington or any other books if you're on the words your equal to you they should be anything interesting or in the market what ever mention them keep

"The US brokered ceasefire in northern Syria ands today meanwhile Turkey's president Recep Tayyip Erdogan is meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin to talk about the crisis one launched a military offensive in northern Syria about two weeks ago with the stated goal of clearing Kurdish fighters from the area Turkey also wants to resettle about two million Syrian refugees there who currently are living in Turkey with me now is Douglas Elliman he's president of the Arab Gulf states institute here in Washington DC from two thousand eight to two thousand eleven he served as the deputy cheaper as the deputy chief of mission at the US embassy in Turkey he's also a former US ambassador to Iraq and Kuwait good morning ambassador good morning well always one's actions on Syria fit into his broader agenda for Turkey what does he want for his country I think basically what everyone wants is to prevent the emergence in eastern Syria of any stronger unified Kurdish governing structure and as long as American troops were there with the Syrian democratic forces especially up along the border it was very difficult for him to go against the militarily because a NATO ally was working with the STF he has a secondary goal however of preventing physical and political connections between Syrian Kurds who live in the west of Syria near it live and north of Aleppo and the east of Syria the one for talking about here and maybe finally it's almost always good politics in Turkey two counter pose Turkish nationalism against Kurds and the very real PKK terrorist threat that has been going on for the past three decades in Turkey so this also gives him a domestic political bump against his enemies by showing that he is strong against a potential Kurdish terrorist enemy and help out this meeting between her to one and and put in today what's the relationship like at this point between Turkey and Russia well everyone has been working for most of the past decade on expanding Turkey's relations in addition to those of its traditional allies the United States NATO in Europe everyone sees himself as an emerging real regional and world leader but when I was in Turkey in two thousand ten airline signed with Putin and worked with the Russian company to build Turkey's first nuclear power plant which is still not finished but there has also been have been attempts to expand the places from which Turkey by defense equipment the S. four hundred air defense missiles from from Russia he wants to see itself is no longer completely tied to the west and wants to look to the east and to the south as well for allies and expansion of its economic political and military influence and does the United States need to be worried about that to the extent that the United States depends upon Turkey as being only a traditional NATO ally it is an issue for the United States expanding to the east sure to China to the south into the Arab world doesn't necessarily mean that Turkey cannot be perform the goals that it has of the things that is done within the NATO alliance but it will mean that Turkey will be calibrating its domestic interest in its foreign policy interests and security interests differently than it has in the past so the United States needs to make sure that we know what we want from Turkey and Turkey in the NATO alliance and economically and then try to use our influence to bring airline to that conclusion as well how could Russia's involvement here affect US foreign policy in the region his foreign policy is becoming more aggressive in the Middle East especially now in Syria with the departure of US forces are Russia has already a large role in keeping the I should I said regime in power in Damascus they have been actively working with the Syrian regime with the Iranians and Ronnie and proxies in eastern Syria and what I expected as American forces withdraw as the Turks go in you'll see an expansion of Russian influence Russian participation with the Syrian regime into this territory that the crews had hoped to control in eastern Syria for me former deputy chief of mission at the US embassy in Turkey Douglas Elliman thanks so much for

Russia, Turkey and Syria discussed on Monocle 24: The Monocle Daily
"The United Nations has warned Russia and Turkey to act urgently to avert a bloodbath in the Syrian province of it live the region is in the hands of rebels. But Syrian government forces have been massing head of what may be a major offensive will. The call for peace, came from the UN's envoy to Syria, Stephan the Mr. and to discuss this. I'm joined on the line by Anna Borshchevskaya. She's senior fellow at the think tank the Washington Institute, and she focuses on Russia's policy towards the Middle East and everyone welcome on twenty four. Just explain to us what is lead Stefan demus door to openly urge both Vladimir Putin and reg type outta one to talk on the phone and stop what's being described as an imminent bloodbath in it lip. Sure. Ama- it's it's great to be here Stefan domestic comment. You know what's what's fascinating about it is it excludes the United States. It only mentions Russia and Turkey and I, it shows how how little of a role the United States is playing in Syria at the moment that it's come down to Russia and and Turkey. And the reason why this conversation of so important is because if history's any guide every offensive that we've seen in Syria had absolutely horrific horrific consequences for civilians and and that was the result of both Assad spawning and Russian bombings. Both of them have led to severe civilian. Casualties in inland has a very large number of children. The very large number of civilians, I believe about three million civilians total many of them children. So a blood shed a bloodbath that that he mentioned really eminent. And if history is a guide. Russia's, not the right, not the right state to stop it. Tell us why it lip has suddenly become disgraced, focus. Webuye people like Stephan did Mr., have to wait into stop all this carnage. The last rebel stronghold in Syria. We've seen we've seen other cities, fall fish as the fall of Aleppo. If it looked falls, this will be the last of this. This will pretty much be the end of rebellion against Assad and Assad will unequivocally stay stay in power. Now, the issue of course is there's very few places for refugees from to run to in Syria at this point, they could run to Turkey and, and this is another reason why turkeys is so important. Some analysis suggests that an offensive and Illit could be not as major some suspect, but but perhaps an attempt by Russia to force turkeys hand to act more aggressively in it. Live precisely out of fear of over massive Rasheed. G flows into the country thereby basically shielding Russia from continued international condemnation. Rightfully so for their human rights abuses instead putting putting the weight on Turkey putting the weight on Turkey, but we're hearing reports in the last few hours that the have been bombing raids on it lib, and they may well have been carried out by the Russians. That's absolutely correct. That's another exactly the same reports that I've seen. And therefore, you know, it remains to be seen how the scenario is going to play out at very, my may well be that, you know, if I very well may be that it will be the major -fensive that really ends and and they'd lip. But another possibility could also be something on a smaller scale, but still something that forces turkeys hand. So there's two possibilities that we can see playing out how much of a real influence do they have the however you talk about the the interplay between Russia and Turkey? Yes. At the end of the day, the person who can stop any huge offensive on it. Lib is neither the president of Russia new. The president of Turkey is the president of. Syria? Well, Assad you know, it's interesting you say that Assad is an is he feels very confident he's, he clearly wants to regain all of all of his country, and he talks about it in his actions, suggest feeling of confidence. But the fact of the matter is militarily he's quite weak even though he's captured a lot of territory.
Russian trolls, bots 'spreading discord' over vaccine safety, scientists say
"Twitter bots and Russian trolls appear to have a new target vaccine safety. That's what we learned from a new study published in the American journal of public health that study found that the same kind of Russian online mischief that tried to influence the twenty sixteen election is now being used to so division and confusion in western countries about the safety of vaccines. The researchers examined one point, seven million tweets published between twenty fourteen and twenty seventeen David brownie tops, gay teachers in the school of engineering and applied science at George Washington University. He led the research for the study. Tell us, first of all, David, what kind of message is you're seeing online about vaccines? We saw a wide range of different types of messages. On one hand, we saw perhaps most surprisingly messages from identified
Congo’s latest Ebola outbreak taking place in a war zone
"Start with the new and very worrying outbreak of the abode of virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo is just two weeks ago, the authorities they had to Clinton early outbreak in the west of the country to be over that success was put down to the rapid response approach device after the poorly contained epidemic in west Africa in two thousand thirteen to two thousand sixteen, but now more than two and a half thousand kilometers way in north key province near the border of Uganda, they've been thirty six deaths as we record this program, some of which have already been confirmed as Ebola. It's the same strain as before, but the outbreaks probably not actually linked the problem in dealing with it as the deputy director of emergency preparedness. Peter Salama. The World Health Organization told Claudia Hammond is this outbreak is going to be far more challenging to contain and even riskier. For the medical staff involved. The outbreak is centered around Mela beco- health zone, and particularly around us Motown cooled, men Geena. That really is the epicenter of the outbreak. We are however, receiving notifications of suspected cases that go beyond this particular healthy area and health zone. So they're being investigated in there more than thirty suspected cases currently. That this outbreak is completely separate from the one that was only declared over a couple of weeks ago. Is it because it's it's so far away across the other side of the country. We don't have definitive evidence as yet, but nor do we have any reason to believe that these outbreaks connected the distance between Ecuador, province and north keeping provinces is around two thousand five hundred kilometers. We know that this outbreak is likely to have taken off towards the end of July, and there were no active cases in the Equitor outbreak. After early Jews, how worrying is this new outbreak? This outbreak is extremely concerning in the Ecuador outbreak. I spoke of number of complicating factors, logistics affected health workers were infected early, which is, of course a ruse fan publication. The fact that the sites were much close to forested area. The fact that we have multiple sides simultaneously to address in terms of outbreak response. The fact that we also had proximity to Buddha's. So in this outbreak in northern kiva province, we have all of the above, but above and beyond. All of that here, the biggest constraint is security. There are more than one hundred groups in the North Kivu province more than twenty highly active and there is of operation really of Aleppo. Unfortunately, we've many of the areas which we're going to have to cover to reach all of the context out of the eight million population of northern kiva. One million people are internally displaced, so it's a population on the move, so that must make it much more difficult to work with communities. If you've got communities. So broken up on areas of conflict, metro difficult, much of this province is in UN security level for and what that means in practice is that many of the roads will have to travel alone who require escorts. Now, staff will require security, pistol protective equipments and not just the regular PP. We're used to using any Bill. Outbreaks to protect from infection, and we'll be relying heavily on the UN to help us with negotiations if needs be with some of the armed groups in order to access the population.
