Alexei Navalny is the Kremlin's number one opponent, but since he was poisoned last month in Russia It appears he's lost his name, at least to Vladimir Putin and anyone else from the Kremlin In the past month, Russian officials have been regularly asked if they were behind the attack on him. Ah, what they're going to need to find the culprits, but each time they have refused to refer to Mr Navalny by name. Finally, one government politician has actually used Mr de Valdez name. And so has the Kremlin website for the first time, and it's so surprised the Russian media this use of his name that it actually became a talking point in the country..

"Now. Supporters of the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, say traces off the nerve agent Na'vi Chuck have been found in a water bottle retrieved. From his hotel room in Siberia on the line from Moscow, Sergei Gauri Ash from the BBC's Russian service and Saturday. What's the significance of this? Sir James, the first and most Navalny's supporters has actually proven that the most prominent Kremlin critic was likely poison before he headed to the airport in Siberia. And fell violently ill on a flight last month, So at first they thought that he was poisoned in the airport of AA Cup of tea, which he drank in the airport Cafe in Tom's cuts the city in Siberia. But they have actually proven that they found a bottle of water with dresses off this nerve. Asians know the choke on the neck of that motel in Navalny's hotel room, where he stayed in Tomsk. Which is why he was likely already. I think he was poisoned already, and he drank water from that bottle, and he left traces off the nerve agent on the neck of the bottle. Either the bottle was poisoned and which is one of only felt ill already on the plane. So and we I also know how exactly they have a past this very significant. Ah, ah, bottle to the German experts. So Navalny's supporters entered his hotel room just An hour after his press secretary tweeted that Navalny has fallen ill and the plane has landed in the city of Omsk. They have entered this room on DH. They searched for any objects which navalny could could possibly touch. Or he could use to check whether they were poisoned or not, And they've all supposed to Video in their accounts showing how they were searching this room and how they were packing This bottle's in plastic bags, using gloves and transferring them thereafter to building Bond his supporters then I mean, what did they say about this? In terms of what? It changes? Ah, you know for the investigation. Well, in fact, the video surveillance system in the hotel where Navalny has state and the Russian investigative news outfit, Proact has reported that the recordings from this system has been taken off by somebody, apparently from somebody from the security services. And it would be really not difficult to trace who has been entering Navalny's room at that hotel and who has been placed in pockets of water in his hotel room? Because he apparently drank from the bottle, and that both of was poisoned. And it is possible to. Ah, connect those two and to realise how this bottle of water ended in his hotel room and who brought it there. S O. The significant thing is that nobody was poisoned Like, hours before he actually felt ill so that our execute shed some light on the Ah how exactly he was poisoned. Two. Experts say that it couldn't be a poison in the water because in this case he would be Dead if you will be ill, like in minutes, not in ours, but it actually is their part of the investigation on this thing, and they obviously are goingto work in it more and more, But they just told how exactly they have found this bottle and where the crisis of this notion occasions were.

Top EU official proposes new 2030 target to reduce emissions

"Earlier today. European Commission President Ursula von Delaying gave her first State of the Union address to the European. Parliament. It's fair to say that it has been and will be more closely scrutinized than the setpiece usually is the EU is beset like the rest of the world by an ongoing pandemic and associated economic turbulence, and also attempting to ease the United Kingdom out of the block with as little damage to the fixtures and fittings as possible and the UK's latest history on x over the last week or so demonstrate that this remains an unsolved problem while joined with more Bite Niamey Leery Europe correspondent at the Irish Times. Niamey before we talk about the details of what Slovan delay and had to say, did it strike you? There was an overall theme or tone she was swinging for I. Think it was quite striking. Future focused. She talked about how can we get out of the Democrats economic repercussions in a way that says. The continent for the future. So it was very much to do with tying together the various different goals whether that's a climate and economic development where increasing digitalization on. Also a one section of her speech, which I thought was particularly strong was on discrimination and efforts at kind of acknowledging the reality in the block of racism and discrimination. Based on sexual orientation or religious beliefs. So it was quite wide ranging and then the other aspect of it was. She proposed making it easier for the EU to come up with common policy when it comes to international relations particularly on matters relating to human rights sanctions. So just as a liberation on that idea of general tone this being her first state of the Union as as commission president does it does it seem that we understand what her idea of the European Union is. I think she Saturday as being. A sort of an unfinished project what it ought to be somewhere where people can have a quality of life get paid fairly for work have social protections that you're does better on that than other parts of the world, and that's part of the reason why able better able to weather the pandemic but that it's not enough and she said that there would be a new framework introduced to. Member states to set minimum wages in order to make work pay property. Then an in addition to that there was the The section on discrimination which I think was unusual in acknowledged the struggles in the block in terms of she mentioned a particular discrimination against Rome people on also the LGBTQ I free zones in. Poland or she called out as inhumane. And so I think she's she was quite strong meticulous division of the block as being a place where people and live more freely with rights and have a better quality of life in general but I think that she also you know it's it's. It's quite telling that she. She had. Many. Difficulties take me in terms of international relations they were for her to talk about it was difficult relationship with Russia difficult relationship with China difficult relationship with the United States difficult relationship Britain as well. Well, let's talk about some of those difficult relationships and because we are here broadcasting from London let's talk about the difficult relationship. The now has with the UK did brexit get much of a mention? She did mention us. So she said that with every day that passes it becomes more difficult for deal to be reached and she also said that. The EU would stand by with the agreement would never at go back on its the an agreement that had been passed by the European Parliament Anheuser Commons and that had been jointly agreed by the UK Andy you to Protect citizen's rights but also she said first and foremost the Good Friday Agreement on the department and it was quite interesting as well to know that she she also quote the late John Hume, the Nobel laureate. And former SDLP leader from dairy and she said that she described him as one of the Great Europeans. And mentioned that he he recently passed away on us used a quote from him to kind of talk about the strength of diversity which I thought was quite. An interesting use of quotes. It was notable high. She was sort of writing in that story, which is I suppose a Northern Irish story really into this story of the European Union. You mentioned the difficulty of the relationship with Russia and obviously the country of which us live underlying walls defense minister. Germany has found itself once again. On the front line over that relationship having taken in the apparently poisoned opposition politician Alexei Navalny did she took you light any kind of? Way of how the e you can live alongside Russia. She was quite I thought her words were quite firm on Russia's so she said. That the poison she mentioned the poisoner Nevada and said that it wasn't a one sauce and she said, no. Number of gas, pipelines is GONNA. Is GonNa fix that relationship she also am I thought spoke quite in quite heartfelt way in solidarity with the people of Belarus Moore she said that they'd be brave and gone out on the streets and they should have the they shouldn't be pieces on someone else's chessboard what she said, but they should have the ability to determine their own future. You said at the top of this item that she attempted to link the recovery. Well, hopeful eventual recovery from the pandemic the associated economic problems to broader themes of climate in the future on climate in particular. Did she have anything of note to say. So. What? What under nine has proposed that the target for the block to reduce emissions should be increased fifty five percent by twenty thirty, that's compared to a previous commitment to forty percent. This is compared to nine thousand, nine, hundred levels of emissions, and she said that this would be vital in order for the block to reach its Paris Agreement commitments on also its goal of becoming climate neutral by twenty fifty on the way she she described the landmark agreement of the e you to join me borrow seven, hundred, fifty, billion, euro. As an opportunity to do this by directing at least thirty percent or thirty seven percent of the investment towards green initiatives. So things like development of green hydrogen. Renovating homes with. Forty percent of emissions and also. Increasing the car charging network electric vehicle charging that things like that an while this could go in. With kind of digital developments there. For example, at fast broadband were available continent wide including in rural areas that would both alive for rural development but also for things like you know people to work from home more easily and things like that. So she she s she she argued that these things could go hand in hand essentially. But Green groups have been quick to come out and say that fifty five percent of the target isn't enough now some of them had themselves called for that in the. In the past but I guess with the scale of the disaster that they say we're facing, you know they're always going to want to push for more and more ambitious targets

"We don't know how to deal an actor that does all these things at once as you said, that isn't functioning in the sort of our rational way if you will in which we tend to think about foreign policy actions and covert operations. and. What if Donald Trump were of a mind to respond appropriately to this? What would an appropriate American response look like I mean this is after all the attempted murder it's not like the scruple poisoning, right? It's not on the territory of an ally. Alexina Valmy is not somebody except in the sense that the United States has an interest in democratic reforms in general, he's not somebody. I mean, this really is the internal politics of Russian Federation you know should this be something that the US government responds to in a serious way on what would a serious response to it look like? Well. The quick answer is yes but I think it's not just about in the Bali. Pattern here that we've been talking about and it's not just a pattern of poisoning is a pattern of state-sponsored murder of opposition leaders, and at this point the numbers are you know I've lost count of how many journalists have died? How many opposition leaders have been killed? Or. Poisoned in this case and barely survived. It is a pattern of Rufus behavior that is very clearly being directed by the Kremlin and perhaps by Mr Putin himself and I will say that we've done nothing so far. It hasn't just been the trump administration although this administration hasn't put out a statement as a recording time an official statement condemning this from the white. House. The State Department has made a statement by the White House is not I think as an obvious first step just say something about it and call the Russians. Out on this but I think going further than that one thing that people have been talking about for very long time because his pattern has been there for a long time is that we can take pretty specific steps to undermine specific individuals that are in the criminal lead that we know are probably involved in this decision making process, and we do that with targeted sanctions that would perhaps a freeze their assets not allow them to have access to certain bank accounts property rights as Cetera. Almost every individual within the Kremlin elite has off shore bank accounts owns assets and property real estate in. The world. But in some very specific places like London, like the United. States. And likely elsewhere that we don't know about and so we have a lot that we can do to really make it pretty painful for these people and send a very clear message. But we haven't I think Germany here be interesting to see given merckel has said about, Nevada she made a very strong statement and this was unacceptable behavior. which we really haven't heard from before but. We haven't seen Germany pull out of this very lucrative for the Russian side Norstrom two pipeline has incredibly controversial that the United States this administration and the Obama Administration disapproved of, but we haven't seen the German government do anything about it. and. I. Think that comes from putting. The relationship with Russia. The price of gas perhaps on which Germany is dependent on Russian gas above you know morals and above ethics just certain extent. But was certainly there's a lot that we should do in that we can do. But for years we've let this behavior just go basically unpunished. You know one of the things that the president's defenders have said is that while trump you know makes nice verbally to Putin. In fact, the actions of the trump administration have been substantially tougher than its predecessors. Do you expect that US reaction will get tougher if Joe Biden is elected and inaugurated or is the stasis that we've seen on this on the sort of toleration that Putin has been shown a kind of more bipartisan feature of American policy than we sometimes acknowledged. I think it's very much the latter. I think that's really unfortunate meaning that we've seen. SO-CALLED RESETS with Russia from multiple administrations in the United States the Obama Administration called that reset. But obviously, the Bush administration raptured on eleven. Wanted to work with Russia overlooked a lot of bad behavior and it's it's a pattern that we've seen across both parties in the United States where there is this sort of acknowledgment or perhaps common understanding that. We have to work with Russia there around and we have to work with this particular regime I'm meeting Mr, Putin's Russia because they're not going anywhere and as the argument goes on top of that, you know the real problem and I've seen this emerge more and more in the policy debate, you know the real problem is not Russia because look they're a big player economically speaking the real problem is China and so we. Really. Need to do is bring the Russians into the fold to help us build a common front against China and I think this thinking is is deeply deeply mistake him because we've tried it at least three times a cross about twenty years and it's only produced bad outcomes obviously the worst or which has been the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the continued occupation of Crimea. So I'm not sure why we keep doing the same thing. When it obviously doesn't work. So my concern is that the election won't change that much although I certainly hope it will I think Joe Biden in the past when he was vp was actually quite good and very sober minded on what the Kremlin is in his work on Ukraine I. Think he did some very good things policy perspective when it came to Ukraine by the same time, the Obama Administration carried out the reset which then resulted. With the Russian saying no thanks to your reset we're. Going to. Invade Ukraine. So I. Think I've seen this kind of thinking emerge and it's a hotly debated issue. I am skeptical though. because.

With such a lethal and complex poison, they say, and they sight more details about this, saying this means that there's still producing it. There's still using it and it's still evolving, which is a very dangerous thing. Now. Today we understand that Vladimir Putin was put on the spot by French President Macron and asked about the situation. What did Putin have to say? Interesting. Putin did not address whether or not Russia did this or not. He was asked about Russia's involvement in this and he told my crone, we have nothing to say about it. That doesn't say we didn't do it. That doesn't mean we weren't involved. Somehow. That doesn't mean this didn't come from Russia. What he said was, we have nothing to say about it. And that is a very loud statement to the world.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"Alexei Navalny, the face of Russia's opposition, a lawyer, a politician and a harsh critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Today, Navalny isn't an intensive care unit in Siberia. Suspected of poisoning reporter Charles Mains joins us from Moscow Charles How did all this play out and hasn't been established? That someone did indeed. Try to poison navalny? Well, it's still a developing story. And as far as whether you indeed was poisoned or not, is still an open theory, depending on who you talk to. We do know that he was fine home from Tomsk in Siberia back to Moscow. Along the flight. He didn't feel well, which prompted an emergency landing in Omsk not to be confused with Tomsk. Navarone now is actually in a medically induced coma on a respirator at the hospital there. Doctors say he's in serious but stable condition, although their quote fighting for his life Also lets his wife Julia, and his personal doctor now there's well that there were reports have some delays in getting access to Navalny initially with lots of police on the scene, So how did this happen? Have you heard any theories? Will his spokesperson I care? Young. Bush made comments to media here. So she says he just drank some black tea at the airport before the flight, and it's obvious that he was poisoned at that moment. Idea here being that hot liquid was more likely to absorb quickly into his body. You know, In fact, a passenger named Pavel Lebedev took a photo of navalny sitting at the cafe in the airport before he got on the flight. He appeared to be drinking tea and later the two of them ended up on that same flight. Andi. It's interesting that some point heat this level have noticed Howl's coming from the laboratory realized that the cries were coming from Navalny, and he ended up detail ing all this in a post to social media once he touched down in arms. So that was at the airport. What else can you tell us about the suspected poisoning? Is there any talk of a possible suspect or suspects or or a motive? No suspects yet certainly know among Navalny supporters. They find this to be no accident. Not surprising. They think it's politically motivated. Navalny has made his fair share of enemies with Siri's reports on corruption in the highest rungs of the Russian government and off Russian business. He's certainly been attacked numerous times before, including in 2017, when provocateurs doused him with a green dye that partially blinded him for a period. Then again in 2019 when he was exposed to some toxic substance while serving a month prison term, which caused some skin lesions, But he made it. Okay on course, there's this troubling pattern of enemies or perceived enemies. Of the Russian state being poisoned, Attacked, sometimes killed, you know in this prompts this constant debate here over who's really behind them, and specifically whether Vladimir Putin really gains from these brazen attacks on his opponents, and that the Kremlin says they're designed to make Putin look bad, and I want to bring in another voice here. This is Andre Kalashnikov, an analyst with the Moscow Carnegie Center here. Even if Kremlin doesn't know anything involved Squad Strange because it means that this kind of events are uncontrollable. FSB local If his B Saman emus off, no one could do it. Without essentially from Kremlin Now. The other option, says Kalashnikovs that the's orders or indeed, coming from the top from Putin. The point is, we can suspect but never seem to really know and interesting enough. The reaction to today's news from the Kremlin spokesman Was to wish Navalny speedy recovery reporter Charles Mains in Moscow. Thank you very much for this.

"Service. We're coming to you live from London. I'm James Menendez on our top story today is the fate of the Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny. He collapsed on a flight from Siberia back to Moscow suffering from suspected poisoning. The plane was forced to land not long after takeoff in the Siberian city of arms. Mr Navalny is now in a serious condition in hospital. This is what a spokeswoman Karen Jarmusch told the Moscow radio station a little earlier. I'm certain that it's a deliberate poisoning. A year ago, he was poisoned in a special detention facility. We all remember that on. I'm confident that now it's a repeat of what happened then. The symptoms of different on the toxic agent is different, but it was obviously done to him deliberately. Alexei Navalny is the most outspoken and most popular critic of the Russian President Vladimir Putin. He has been jailed several times for his activism was shortly before we came on the air aspect to the BBC's Moscow correspondent Sarah Rainsford. What's the latest on his condition, slightly mixed messages coming from the deputy chief doctor at the hospital, where he's being treated on the one hand, saying that Mr Nirvana's condition is serious, but also saying he's stable but also in the same answer, saying that doctors are working to save Mr Nirvana's life, so I think it is pretty clear that this is a very serious incident. As to what caused it. Well, Katayama, She's adamant that medics initially told her he'd been poisoned that all the symptoms were consistent with poisoning. The doctor at the hospital has said that that is one of the theories that they're investigating. He said. It's not definite, he said. The tests are being done investigations with being done. All sorts of blood and other samples were being examined. So clearly it's early days, but a very serious incident. Alexei Navalny and his team were flying back to Moscow from Siberia. I think what was he doing there? We don't know for sure his team haven't revealed that we've asked them directly, and they say that they won't say For now he has posted a couple of pictures. On Instagram on social media. He posted photographs with supporters and also with an opposition candidate for local elections in Tomsk, and we do know that Alexander Valley has an active program to support independent voices. Opposition Voices to take on pro Kremlin candidates that local elections across the country. It's a project that he started back last summer here in Moscow when it led to mass protests here, the biggest process Russia's seen for many, many years when those candidates then didn't make it. Into the local parliament. So this is a project. He's certainly working on its also possible, of course, that he was working on another of his anti corruption investigations. Thes probes that he does periodically that he films and then post on YouTube, and these are normally Probes into figures who are close to power here, if not directly linked to to the Kremlin, and to what extent of his activities being curbed in recent weeks and months. Well, they haven't they happened. I mean, practically speaking, he is facing huge fines. I believe that his bank account his family's even his Children's bank accounts have been frozen. Because of vast finds that were imposed on him over one of his previous investigations and his anti corruption fund. He's had to close it down very recently announced it was closing because the finds are so enormous so fast, they could never pay them back. So On the one hand, he's facing huge difficulties it in carrying on his political activities, But on the other hand, he simply was planning to form another fund and carry on. He gets donations to fund his activity from people across the country who supports him. And also, of course, in terms of political activity, while he's still moving around the country still promoting this idea of opposition voices in politics just in terms of the wider context of that, I guess the credibility of this allegation that he was deliberately poisoned. I mean, I suppose the least one can say is that President Putin's opponents have a have a nasty habit of being bumped off. I mean, that's fair, isn't it? We'll certainly There's Bean, a number of prominent characters who have claimed that they've been poisoned and have very solid grounds to say that I think in recent years, Vladimir Kara Moussa, who's An opposition voice. Hey, a couple of years back suffered a very, very serious incident, which he's adamant is poisoning another character part of its life who's connected to the Pussy Riot group, the protest group. He also was very seriously sick, and he believes he was poisoned, too. So there certainly is something of a pattern here. Although, of course you know until those lab tests come back, it's difficult to know exactly what's happened. Aleksei Navalny. Certainly there's huge suspicion about what might have happened. The BBC's most correspondent Sarah Rainsford. Well, Arkady Ostrovsky is Russia, editor of the Economist newspaper and author of the Invention of Russia from Gorbachev's Freedom to Putin's war festival. How likely Does he think it is that Alexei Navalny wass poisoned? There is a very high probability that this is a poisoning on DH. It's hard to attribute it to anything else that extend about any name for a long time. It doesn't drink is a fit and healthy man. He had been Currently poison for he has been under constant pressure. He was returning from Siberia and he suffered this very strange attack collapsed on lost consciousness. Now in a coma. How much of a threat does he pose to the Kremlin? Put it this way. He is the leader of the Russian opposition. He is number two politician in the country. When Russian public is asked about who are the two most important politicians? The two there recognizes Vladimir Putin is number one in Alexandria, one in number two. I mean, he is a very significant political figure with very strong support base and growing with quite clever tactics, able to Deliver humiliating defeats on blows to the Kremlin. Hey, is a very significant figure, which is Wally. I think the Kremlin in the path certainly has been quite careful in its treatment of Navarre. Only knowing that you know, putting him in jail for a long time or doing anything radical would certainly bring people out in the streets. And that's the one question about this, isn't it If they've bean careful, if you like in the past, why suddenly upped the stakes now? Well, what it tells you is that Russia Russian political system. Is transitioning to something new, which you know it's becoming amore dictatorial is coming. You know if he was indeed poisoned, this is coming. After Putin's change of constitution on after the telephone, a referendum a suitor referendum, which is really what extent Bonnie called quite rightly there sort of antique constitutional coup. So ah, the crane is getting much more audacious. Putin is losing his popular legitimacy. Relying a lot more on repression is planning to clearly state the ruler for a very long period of time and beyond 2020 for when he was supposed to step down on. Of course, this is now coming in the context of the Extraordinary events in in Belarus, where Alexander Lukashenko just stolen election and faced enormous uprising still faces enormous uprising on DH is our asses of unleashed repression on terror, which is really reminiscent ofthe the worst years off Stalinism, which all suggests that President Putin is not perhaps a secures. He seems on the outside from the outside. What we do know about this dictatorship regimes and and Belarus being the case in point. Is that the Dictatorships you know, one minute they look incredibly solid. And then in fact, they're very, very brittle on things can start unraveling at really any point the slightest thing I mean in Belarus, Lukashenka has been stealing. Onda sort of has been rigging Elections for money is has been using repression for many years, and suddenly there is a tipping point on the whole thing. Sort of come unraveling on, I think In Russia. It will be probably very different, but in terms of how brittle regime is, it's not that dissimilar. And we've seen this again in the sudden protests in breaking out in the Far East, which have bean ongoing now for several weeks, people out in the streets because the Kremlin has removed a local governor who was actually quite popular. Now the Kremlin had arrested and removed governors before..
