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.

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

I had a dreadful restlessness, which I still have. It was far from my mind that singing was going to be my savior. That's all coming up on weekend. Hello. I'm more older son with the BBC News. The legal team preparing Donald Trump's defense that next month's impeachment trial in the US Senate appears to be in turmoil with the departure of five lawyers. Reports say they left by mutual agreement David Willis reports since the lawyers who defended Donald Trump during his first impeachment trial, have apparently shown little interest in repeating the exercise his team has had to cast around for replacements. Appointment of Butch Bowers, who they were seasoned political attorney in South Carolina. Those little in the way of Washington. Experience was announced 10 days ago, and in the last few days, several other names have been added to the list. Now it appears that Mr Trump has parted company with all of them on the differences of opinion over the direction his defense should take. Legal briefs are due to be filed this coming Tuesday, with the trial itself set to begin a week after If convicted him inciting an insurrection.

So I think we should use this momentum also to make sure that we continue to deliver on defense spending Fairburn sharing on a stone as we stand together, we are able to deliver security service. The press was not given a recording of Joe Biden's conversation with Vladimir Putin. Jen. How much do we know about how that call went? Well, it was probably a little bit awkward. Basically, What we do know is that President Biden pushed Vladimir Putin on a whole host of issues that Former President Donald Trump, Quite notoriously refused to press the Russian president on so you know everything from the poisoning of Alexei Navalny, the Russian opposition leader, which I know we're going to talk about more later. Um, to you know things like support for U. S support for for Ukraine. All kinds of issues you can Ukraine's sovereignty. Moscow's belligerence toward the U. S. So Russia's interference in the 2020 election, the recent hacking the solar wind software Russian kind of cash bounties to Afghan militants. Those reports in Afghanistan So we basically saw kind of a new sheriff in town, almost with Biden coming in right out of the gate and saying, Look, you know we're not going to look the other way with Russia, doing all of these kind of malign activities toward the U. S. At the same time they did, you know, have to address things that they have in common it and mutual concerns. Most specifically new start. That's the nuclear arms control agreement. It's essentially the last standing major arms control agreement between the U. S and Russia have set to lapse on DSA. Biden and Putin needed to kind of sit down quickly and say, you know, do we agree to do a quick five year extension on this? Have agreed. So that's good news. But it was very clearly, you know, meant to signal that there's a new shift. There's a new administration and that Russia is not going to get away with a lot of the activities that they got away with very easily under the Trump administration. One thing that has stayed the same in Afghanistan is America's special representative Jessica, Can you explain the thinking behind asking Zal make al Assad who also brokered a peace deal with the Taliban to stay on? Sure, I mean, the Biden administration finds itself in a tight box with a very short time line to figure out what to do in Afghanistan. The Trump Administration's deal has allowed US troops set to leave by May. Nobody really thinks that the peace deal can survive if the U. S leaves in this short deadline on so a zit was expected. Don Michael Ezard was invited to stay on and help figure out what to do. He has a good relationship with the Taliban. He's been working with them. For you know, for a couple of years now, his relationship with the Afghan government is obviously more questionable. But at the moment, I think the priority is to figure out how they can have the by an administration can achieve the two things that wants to achieve which is help. Helped the peace process survive on Guy also retain a troop presence there to continue with counterterrorism operations. And there's there's signs of the Taliban may walk away from the peace deal if the U. S decides in May That is just going Tol extend the troops for whatever reason, and then you'll have the collapse of the peace deal. A return Tomo war escalated war and an even bigger problem than that he had at the beginning. Pakistan's Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the release of an Islamist convicted of beheading American journalist Daniel Pearl. The decision has shocked not just the Pearl family, Tony Blinken said It was a quote. An affront to terrorism victims everywhere, Jessica I think Pakistan could have probably predicted the global response to this decision. But what does this tell us about the government and the influence of jihadi is within it. Well, I think that the I mean, the end of the road hasn't been reached yet. The Supreme Court upheld the hell the decision. But there was 11 of the three judges was dissenting, so there is some hope that they could file a review petition and potentially keep him. Keep him behind behind bars. I mean, the other thing is that this is going to be a test to see how Pakistan manages its relationship with the incoming Biden administration. I mean, the condemnation has Bean has been widespread, and the U. S. Has even asked for for them to be able to take shake into U. S custody. So I think we'll have to see where that goes, but it doesn't look, it doesn't look positive and as the power family have said. You know, this is a travesty of justice. There. Will street journal that it when Chief Matt Murray has called this infuriating and just on. I think that's going to continue to be the message, but we haven't seen the end of the road here. President Biden's climate envoy, John Kerry, let's move to China, where he laid out his position this week. In a briefing with reporters on Wednesday, Kerry said the U. S will still try to work with China on climate despite other conflicts between the two nations. Climate. Is a critical standalone issue that we have to deal on. So it's urgent that we find a way to compartmentalize to move forward. President Biden is very, very clear. About the need to address the other issues with China. Nothing is going to be siphoned off into one area from another. David. What's the view from Beijing? Do you sense any eagerness by the party to work with the U. S on this issue? Some, but they're clearly linking it to a whole bunch of other grievances. And there's a real double standard here because during the Trump administration, China delighted in portraying itself as a defender of the planet against the evil wicked Americans who had walked away. When the Paris climate agreement and gave all sorts of nice speeches about how they were going to be leaders on climate, and they had a point, Donald Trump had a terrible climate record. But now that you have an American president, saying great Let's get back to Paris. Let's work on climate. The Chinese is suddenly saying, Well, not if you're gonna talk about genocide in Xin, Jiang or other issues, and we saw very strong statement from a very Far East, spokesman of the foreign mystery Jolly Jen, who said that Chinese corporation sure there's broad common interests, but that he had this weird phrase, he said. Unlike flowers, that conglomerate in a hothouse in winter chill, You can't have areas of cooperation in some areas. If the rest of my natural Asian ship is not in good shape, and so No one should imagine that China will support in any global or bilateral issue when others have blatantly interfering in China's domestic affairs that the problem with that position is that goes down really well with Nash is here in China, but essentially you'll have the Chinese government saying Sure we'll save the planet.

"Shows this presidential palace that he says is Vladimir Putin's that he built. The palace is existence has been known for years. But Navalny in his group say that they have for the first time actually a detailed description of what's inside everything from casinos to cocktail halls to something that is called an aqua disco. Family lives. One of the things that strikes me about this. Besides, just the opulence of the palace is the humor that Alexei Navalny has. He is so sarcastic and has this wry humor that really is, um, you know, even as an American watching the subtitles. You laugh at some of the things that he does in this video, you know, I think that is actually a key thing about Navalny. You know, I think when people think about dissidents between you know Residents in Russia. They think of them usually being you know, he's so tomorrow moral paragons, but the same time you know, very serious people violently is a very serious person. But the key thing is that he Has this humor that is a key part of his appeal and all of his all of his videos. All of his appeals to his supporters are very, very much off our time. You know, they're steeped in Internet culture that always full of means. I mean, they're always very, very funny, And that's why he's able to, you know, get this mass appeal. That's these videos and how he's built his appeal, because not only do they reveal this Often staggering corruption and often very complicated corruption. But it does it in a very humorous way that you know, gripped people's attention. That is very much in this video as well with the palace. So tell us more about this palace that is supposedly hidden away and Vladimir Putin didn't want anyone to know about it. It has a hockey stadium. It's got an amphitheater. And Patrick what exactly is an aqua disco? You know, honestly, even the Valley said they had to look up well in Akron Disco is It appears to be a sort of fountain with lights that you can dance in, But But honestly, honestly, I As one of the things that remains a bit mysterious even after that investigation, but but this palace without so we've known of the existence of this palace for over a decade. I remember actually in and I think it was 2014. We spoke to a whistle blower. Would help build this palace. But what we we didn't know was what it was like inside. You know, it's surrounded by huge fences. It's virtually impossible to fly a drone over it. Normally, somehow Navalny's succeeded in doing that. But the key thing is that you got hold of the floor plans, and he also found out what the orders were to furniture companies and two decoration Cos things like that, and that's allowed him to kind of build this picture of what's inside it. It really has you say just revealed this staggering luxury And also, you know, sometimes this ridiculous things as well, You know, he claims that he's found orders for dance mats. You know, just to imagine Vladimir Putin who cultivates so carefully this strong man. Image to imagine him entertaining world leaders on the dance mat is obviously Quite embarrassing and ridiculous. What do you think's gonna happen? I mean, the last time he was out, he got poisoned. They put they put a nerve agent in the elastic of his of his boxers. It's believed what do you think that prison holds for him and the future holds for him. As we're talking about no value in saying that his you know his stature has massively changed as a result of this attempt to kill him, and of his decision to come back is that statue internationally has changed usually, and it has changed. I think among Many Russians, but there's a huge but is that ultimately I think most Russians still don't actually believe the Kremlin tried to poison him. There was a survey recently and I think it was only like 15%. Russians believed that the Kremlin was behind his poisoning a large number think that Western security services did it or that he did it himself, which is actually what Putin has claimed. What that shows. Is that really the power of propaganda and Russia's still It really is. You know, the Kremlin's control of media in Russia is very, very strong has it is being shaken by the Internet and Nirvana is an example of that. But what that means is that Fundamentally, he has a huge mountain to climb T gain support among it among the majority of Russians. Well, ABC is.

"Vladimir Putin, returned to Russia yesterday despite warnings from authorities that he would be arrested. Yes. Last week. I love needs. You left me a strawberry Cool man. You show that you would stress you get near paralysis progress after his plane landed in Moscow, Navalny said the criminal cases against him had been fabricated, he said the truth is on his side, He said he has no reason to be afraid. And then he said goodbye to his wife and he was arrested. Well, NPR's Lucian Kim is covering this story in Moscow, either Lucy in Good morning. Why did Navalny returned to Russia if he knew that he would be arrested almost as soon as he got off the plane? Well. Alexei Navalny has never shied away from publishing an investigation into government corruption or attending a protest rally because he was afraid of arrest. He spent literally hundreds of days in jail in the past and has faced criminal cases that he says are trumped up. He was in Germany for the past several months, recovering from a poisoning with a nerve agent but vowed to return to Russia yesterday. The flight he was on was diverted to another airport at the last minute, maybe because crowds of his supporters have gathered at the airport, where he was scheduled to land. I've only had time to make the statement we just heard And then he was arrested by police. You've just given us a picture of this man's long running battle against Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin has certainly replied in kind is it isn't his government suspected of some role in this poisoning. Well, absolutely. That's what Navalny has said from the beginning that Putin ordered this poisoning. The Kremlin denies any involvement. Putin is so allergic to a navalny that he doesn't even mention his name, and he has suggested that Navalny is too insignificant to be killed. Well, what does his return mean for Russia's opposition? I mean, certainly, he was considered significant enough to arrest Leslie clear. There is no organized opposition in Russia, besides a handful of political parties that cooperate closely with the Kremlin, and that's what makes Navalny's such an outstanding figure because he mastered social media long before the government did. Hey, kept soldering on even when he was relatively unknown, calling people to protest and running a presidential campaign in 2018 that was really doomed from the start, so his return is hugely important to people who oppose Putin. Many Russians and I personally know quite a few have left Russia because of the repressive political climate here. Navalny could easily have stayed in exile. But he's now giving a signal that his place is in Russia, and he sees himself as a future leader of the country. Lucy in. Obviously we're hearing about Navalny's returning Navalny's arrest. I'd like to know his best. You can tell if Russians air hearing about this does this set news? Get on state media at all? And you mentioned social media?
