Vlad tidings: demonstrations across Russia

"On saturday tens of thousands of russians took to the streets in more than a hundred towns and cities across the country. In support of jailed kremlin critic. Alexey navalny protesters chanted. Putin is a thief as well as freedom to navalny chilling videos emerged police beating and kicking demonstrators. The response was not one about an out brutality. More than three thousand arrests were made at. Even mr navalny's wife was briefly. Detained the demonstrations were sparked mr navalny's arrest on spurious charges. Just as soon as he returned from germany last week but protesters were also fired up by to our video narrated by mr navalny and released a day later. Throw it saw my viceroy was thirty. Wrestling depicts a lavish palace. On the black sea. Allegedly built for president vladimir putin and funded with dodgy. Money allegations the kremlin dismissed as just rumor mr putin remains in a tough spot with disquiet spreading and his loudest critic making just as much trouble while in jail as he did out of it. This was not my first protest in moscow in quite a few the past few years are cody. Trotsky is russia editor in moscow. I would say that. Fear was one of caution pretty much on both sides the fact that people have braved the streets brave. The police cordons came out. Despite enormous intimidation campaign was waged. By the kremlin in the preceding days is in itself extraordinary russia's much more repressive state today than it was even a few years ago. The people who were out in the street was certainly not radicals as abba in moscow protests. That was scary. Moments police charging but on the whole the police behavior some restraint and its actions were nowhere on the level of violence and brutality which we saw a few months ago in neighboring belarus. There was no special measures with no tear. Gas rubber bullets so it was definitely tense. But i didn't see many of the accesses and when we spoke to protesters what were they saying. Why were they out. The protesters came from the social strata and had different possibly political beliefs. What brought them out onto the street. Were few things. There was a sense of injustice over the arrest of alexei novel name who was arrested at possible control on the rival at airport and is now facing three and a half years in jail for breaking parole rules on a previous suspended sentence and the reason he broke his parole rules. That didn't comfortable to the police was just happened to be recovering from novichok nerve agent poisoning in germany. So people obvious that as an injustice the other big catalyst for the protest was the release of alexander violence extraordinary two hour long documentary film about allegedly putin secret palace in the black sea coast which was bill deem volumes cronies at a cost of one point three billion dollars. It's your absolutely archetypal. James bond villains had with all the trimmings and the golden toilet brushes that made a big impact. It clocked over eighty million views on youtube. An underlying over that was just general sense of tidiness of putin's regime tiredness of course lack of economic growth it was a very broad protests. And that's what made say interesting. You know lots of people came out for the first time. And so do you think that. That broad dissent a across demographics. On a lot of first-time protesters will will make any difference to to. What the kremlin actually does. It's not going to make any difference. In the short term the kremlin has already said. It's not going to pay attention. Admittedly fiscal putin spokesman said well. We think it was a very small protests. Many more people vote for vladimir putin. That was ironic. Given that alexander was barred from the election in which people voted for vladimir putin the reason the numbers were kept down walls because of enormous intimidation campaigns parents schoolchildren were told to keep their kids at home. Students were threatened with expulsion employs. The employees they'd risk dismissal if they would join the protest et cetera et cetera. The kremlin is not going to release alexei navalny overnight but only himself and he's associates of said. This is not an immediate process. This is a long haul to re coined the famous phrase by me. He'll gorbachev in the late eighties. The process started so. Do you think that the detention of of mr navalny and the release of this video and all of those us have really changed things. Is this a turning point. They do and this change effects vladimir putin's legitimacy which is already being Waning and we. We've seen that in in the raising figures. But this film and alexander. Violence return to russia is a massive blow to putin's legitimacy and to the attitudes and perceptions of putin in the broad russian public as one commentator set to me you know two years ago people had to explain why they oppose putin today they have to justify why they support him. And how has the international community responded to to this protest mood and these protests i think so far west leaders have been watching very carefully. What's happening in russia. has been rhetorical outrage. At least both from angela merkel Sees this as a slap in her face because nobody was in germany under her protection also been marketed. Different reaction from washington. I think we will see a very different response. From biden's administration compared to trump's acquiescence to putin's action has been called for tax sanctions including from poland. A you member states the foreign ministers to discuss next steps. But i think there is also worry amongst western countries and particularly among russian neighbors and countries like the baltic states and poland that events in russia will have repercussions outside russian borders and this north unfounded fears because in two thousand fourteen two years after big protests swept russia features berg and other big cities the kremlin annexed crimea and stuff the war in ukraine in order to change the narrative and dominate political agenda so lot of russia neighbors worried that repression at home and protests against the kremlin will lead to aggression.

The Fate of Refugees After World War II

"David NASA joins us. Now from New, York is the author of many books including several biographies, notably, a Pulitzer Prize, finalist Andrew Carnegie as well as the Patriarch, his new book is called the last million Europe's displaced persons from World War Two Cold War David thanks for being here delighted to be with you. So you've written primarily biographies. This is very different book I mean I guess you could say it's a million biographies. Some of them were clearly outlined individual late than others what made you decide to make that transition I. Suppose it historian. What we try to do is correct the record give voice to the voiceless fill in the gaps in our history. And one of the largest gaps I thought was the immediate postwar period after World War Two. You. Know we Americans have come to believe that when the war was over the celebrations began the sun came out to shine and sailor kiss the beautiful woman in Times Square and everybody celebrated got on with their lives to get. That was not the truth as I learned certainly for the millions of refugees who were displaced by the war had no homes to return to after the war or were unwilling to return to their homelands when the war was over, there were millions of. Refugees. Prisoners of war political prisoners concentration camp victims left behind in Germany. On the day in May of Nineteen forty-five. Within weeks those who were able. To walk home to get on a truck to take a plane some road bicycles back to France five to six million had returned but a last million, this subject of my book and the title of my book were left behind in Germany. And he's their story that I tell. I mean, it really is not just a single story obviously and not just a story of all of these individuals but there were so many different kinds of displaced people, different groups, not just in terms of country of origin whether they were from the Baltic states or from Ukraine or were Jews from other parts of Europe were from Germany itself. But also you had this incredible and very confusing mix of collaborators deserters. Survivors of the Holocaust how can you tell that story when there are so many stories even within that last million one of the challenges of this book was to tell the story of individuals tell the story of groups and tell the story of the debate that went on in the united. Nations elsewhere between the nations of the world as to what to do. With these last million were left behind in Germany they came from there there were. Three groups, we can divide them into. The Germans. Understood the to fight the war with six to seven million. Soldiers they were GONNA have to replace those soldiers with laborers with forced labor slave labors from eastern. Europe? Who Work in the minds who work in the factories who work in the fields to replace the soldiers on the eastern? Front. And from the very beginning of the war the Germans literally kidnapped. Millions of eastern Europeans the largest number from Poland and Ukraine. and. They were brought into Germany and remained there when the war was over many of them because they were afraid to go home again, they didn't know what they were GonNa find some were convinced that. The Soviets have been taken over Poland and Ukraine there would be no way for them to resume their lives those the second group they came into Germany. And these from the Baltic states from Latvia Lithuania. Estonia. Many of them came into Germany in nineteen, forty, four, hundred, forty, five at the end of the war because they had collaborated in one way or the other. With the Nazi authorities

EU could reopen borders to tourists in Covid-19 recovery plan

"With many European borders closed because the corona virus pandemic the tourism industry already hard hit he's feeling a catastrophic summer but it's not just tourists are affected business travel has taken a hit to answer the European Commission the executive arm of the E. U. is introducing a rescue plan or roadmap today to alleviate the pressure on the economy I asked our Europe correspondent Gavin Lee how the road map could help the tourist industry the three elements to it basically it's about in the words of the the commission spokesperson at a briefing but I've had the rights of individuals for the need to rest relaxation fresh chat and see families in other countries not depends of course on the situation the commission says of how bad the extent of the virus is spreading whether it remains fairly common there isn't a second spike but what we're looking at the setting out a roadmap for tourism and travel and holidays as of this summer so some of twenty twenty I know what's and a couple of the areas includes making sure of course it's slow it's progressive there will be some kind which told of guys that if you're going on holiday somewhere in Europe there should be an indication of what all the coveted prevention strategies in each country that you might go to what all the hotel strategies and also there will be a recommendation the individual hotels start to advertise put themselves on the market in what they can offer your average tourist and holiday maker in terms of conflict prevention cleanliness ability to to sanitize things like that but that should be part of the you know the new holiday approaches for example of these old recommendations so that's one of them and the other thing is about analogs and number of countries fourteen countries have said that because of the pressure off the adult industry give you an exam well I am in Brussels the main advice here Brussels airlines have axed are they going to access a quarter will jobs a thousand staff will go into the open a third of the allied fleet will go as well all the giving money as cash back for people who need refunds for cancelled flights because of coverage the idea was to give vouchers no the EU commission will push back in the meeting today to say no you can make vouchers more attractive more appealing but that should be fundamentally principle of the rights of of somebody to have the money back instead so that service a couple of elements that are looking at as part of the the summer travel plan today so if you are within the E. U. and you want to go on holiday can you go anywhere this is a really good points on this is there are two words or phrases that you might still hear more more one is social trouble bubble a social travel bubble the second is a travel corridor so for example this Friday the Baltic states already putting the borders to each other so Estonia Latvia Lithuania what's been relatively few cases along with Finland already booked to travel in and out of each other's countries so for example Estonia relies on tourists from Finland forty percent of its tourists come up from that so this is a big thing and that will mean free movement for all of those people the Swiss national broadcast today have suggested that they will announce later on that the internal borders between Switzerland Austria Germany and France would also reopen for total travel between them so the idea is that that you you've got almost a either social bubble of of those countries innocent people in those countries going on holiday that briefly travel corridors was put to the E. U. yesterday by my Danish Coley there's been talk of Denmark for example saying that they've had a few cases could I have a simple flight path to Greece was also a few cases the commission says that will be up to member states but they will not recommend it and they would also not recommend quarantine if you fly somewhere but you should have to stay fourteen days in a hotel they said there should be no need for that with the way prevention for coverage I should in theory take place on the grounds of get home sometimes as washing it

Sustainable Travel: The Hard Truth with Lucy Siegle

"Twenty nineteen year in which the travel industry found itself in the spotlight over its role in contributing to climate change tourists now more aware than ever before the environmental cost of air travel. Tourism contributes around five percent of greenhouse gases according to the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership at travel alone contributes to two point five percent of global emissions and these predictions suggest that these stats likely to triple by twenty fifty. If important changes are not maids however the tourism industry is responding in many diverse ways. For example the Guardian Travel Section now primarily focuses on destinations. That can be reached without the use of planes. Easyjet will carbon offset all flights by the end of twenty twenty initiatives such as green tourism? Have seen a leap in membership and provide hoteliers with a green check meter to promote more responsible tourism practices and global travel as a certainly more environmentally aware. Now environmental issues. I have to admit their uncomfortable truths for us in the travel industry so today we're taking the bull by the horns as it were and we're asking. Chiyo hey to tell us just how bad it is and also what we can do about it so environment environmental impact on travel. I think it's very good but the travel industry is trying to tackle this head on but I think we've also got some uncomfortable truths to face and in facing those uncomfortable truths. Hopefully we can make some headway into doing some stuff about it. But how in your opinion how? How bad is the travel industry for the world? How bad is the travel industry? Well if you look at some who just start with the elephant in the room so we look aviation you can say that aviation has a small part of the climate change pie in the comes in four percent. Something like that four percent. You might say well you know. In fact I've heard it said well PSA quivalent to say the fashion industry or something like that but we're in a very serious situation. Everyone's mentioned this to you. We all have to decarbonised really rapidly. So it doesn't matter. What your slice of the Pie is he needs to be getting it to zero. Unfortunately and aviation is one of the ones that's increasing and increasing exponentially so we could be seeing like a quarter of the world's carbon budget used by aviation in the very near future and that's not acceptable. Because you look at the amount of people that fly so I think in the UK. It's something like fifteen percent of the population tastes seventy five percent of the flights. Something like that. Probably most of them by me mainly you. Yes exactly so. It's not fair. Is it that all of that. Carbon budget should be used in that way so that that is the really really big existential and the media issue for the travel and tourism industry is that it's predicated on flights which have become cheaper and all the rest of it and then you get into a very interesting territory about offsetting and where we are now. How much needs to help and is by so? You really can't get very far. Ironically when we're talking about travel without coming across a very difficult brick wall I know this is the lady bird version of environmental issues but reminded y need to decarbonised. Oh so yeah so we are in. The era of climate crisis is not the only crisis that's affecting the bias fairs. We call the planet We also in the age of extinction. loss say rapid extinction loss of species. And we've got lots of different pressures. So the oceans absorbed ninety percent of of heat and a report came out a couple of weeks ago so that was in January February and it was irreputable evidence that the planet is is is warming because you can test the atmosphere will time. There's lots of different factors which might account for the heating when it comes to the oceans that is a controlled experiment ladies and gentlemen and we had the hottest oceans on record since records began and it is equivalent to exploding thousands of Hiroshima bombs in the ocean. That's the amount of energy and he is now in the ocean and this affects all sorts of things so for people in the UK who only really like one sort of fish which is called it means that if the oceans warm around the UK the COD will swim off to colder climes. And they all go to the Baltic states and we can't get any cards so it has a knock-on effects like that but it is proof incontrovertible evidence that the world is warming and a warming world brings with it a lot of problems including higher incidences of diseases oceans rising icecaps melting fires that burn hotter and are more widespread as we've seen in Australia etc etc etc so Greta Thambo says this so I'm GonNa say it but but if you were saying it I by the way she seems to have a wide for you have a great plot has exploded but you you were saying say funny because it's almost anniversary of me-meeting Greta Thornburg in Davos upper mountain and I said to my friend. This is absolutely legendary this point while. I don't think she's going to catch them did you. My friend resigned. I don't know I think she might anyway like two days later. Thirty two thousand kids marched in Belgium for Friday's for the future though is already regretting. Why statement and she just seems so as literally. Mitch Leigh Small. Once more young men conscious actually small. She's actually small and she's very softly spoken very unassuming and yeah. I mean what a presence will an accident force and I really care myself. I squandered that did you. Did you feel something around are no? That sounds ridiculous but people that I've got that power to to have an impact on so many people often do when they walk into the room. Yeah think so. I think I was just being very defensive about what this kid you know. I've been doing this for. Aj's join the queue. Hello but I also now you'll court so you were just about to court for a minute. Yes she's incredibly powerful force and she. I remember her face and her being rather than another thing. That's quite disarming if you spend time around High Profile people with this charisma that quite jazz Hans. She's not just handsome toll so I think I just took a while to understand what she was bringing But she's very very good and what I was going to save it. She says a lot of people. Ask Me and when is the climate crisis going to be over? It's not a moment. It is an era. This is the reality so once you accept that of the reality the climate era. What are you going to do about it? But we can't we can't. We're not GONNA stop traveling. People are not going to stop traveling for fun for work. The world is a very a much smaller place. You might say well people might have to but look what's happened this week. The Corona virus so. This plane's not taking off from China China is basically closed. Which is so. They'll be kind of carbon win for that in a way because they'll be some fear emissions. We're in a numbers game now. So you go to you. Go to look at these things but you know there's an example very very recently where we might say. We're not going to travel. But actually you're not gonNA travel so there's a number scenarios that might happen where you went to travel so what's difficult. The moment is that it's just all on us making the decision not to travel and you may have children who are very inspired by Greta. You might be parents. Have I inspired by Greta? Making a decision to take a train journey instead of Dumping on the plane and these are really interesting. Personal kind of points of maneuver and negotiation at the moment within families and stuff like that and it will be very interesting to see how the travel industry which. I'm sure I shouldn't talk about as if it's a big homogenized thing 'cause I know it's very nuanced different parts of it but they've got to kind of surf this weird moment with us really and we have got to come up with more inventive products. We've got to come up with more different ways of doing things we've got to look at some tough

Senate report details Obama administration's response to Russian interference

"Frozen by paralysis of analysis hamstrung by constraints both real and perceived that's how the chairman of the Senate intelligence committee describes the Obama administration's response to Russian interference in the twenty sixteen election in a statement Republican senator Richard Burr says president Obama's national security team debated courses of action without truly taking one Bure was commenting on the latest installment in his committee's long awaited report on Russian efforts to disrupt the presidential election four years ago I'm joined now by the vice chair of the Senate intelligence committee mark Warner of Virginia senator welcome thank you for him do you agree with that statement that the Obama team was was paralyzed well I think there are clearly lessons learned and I and I think the Obama administration with the benefit of hindsight should have acted more aggressively but let's face it I think our whole government our intelligence community writ large our law enforcement community were caught off guard I think there was such an abundance of caution shown by the Obama administration that this might politicize an already very political time in retrospect you we have to realize these kind of threats are ongoing and that when we see evidence of foreign intervention the president the administration needs to be more forward leaning did to put Americans on notice to be be wearing be on guard let me push on that the the point you're making that that this good but that the Obama administration was caught off guard that they were worried about politicizing an already very political moment but how much of a parent should they be given there this is the job of the national security team to balance competing factors to look out for national security even in an election year well again I think we have never seen this level of coordinated attack from an adversary in in the midst of our elections to happen not only into the DNC but a series of senior Clinton official like John Paston others and then selectively weaponize at information on how they dribbled out over a period of time now you could say if we'd done a little more homework and looked at what Russia done in Ukraine what Russia done previously in the Baltic states we should have been more aware I think at the same time the administration on one hand was looking at what Russia was doing on the geo political basis where we had Russian actions in Crimea but that kind of geo political analysis was totally separate from the Russian cyber and misinformation disinformation effort the point of doing a report like this is to avoid a similar situation going forward how confident should we be that the problems your report identifies have been fixed I wish I could say I was a hundred percent confident I wish I could say point two broad bi partisan legislation that had been passed I've gotten bipartisan legislation that would make explicitly clear that if a foreign government tries to intervene the appropriate response is not to say thank you but to actually reported to the FBI the fact that we've not pass that kind of legislation is bothersome although it was installation that was necessarily a fault here that there wasn't some you know law that the Obama administration lacked was there well I think we're talking twenty twenty if there was any gaps making explicitly clear that foreign intervention is wrong I think most Americans would realize that but if we need a lot it explicitly make that clear we ought to have that the problem is we still have a president it refuses to fully acknowledge the level of intervention that took place refuses to fully acknowledge that the Russian efforts have not stopped that they will continue and instead unfortunately has been out there putting forward totally debunk theories that somehow it was Ukraine rather than Russia that was intervening in twenty sixteen that's very by the way which no one in the intelligence committee the law enforcement community and for that matter I don't think any of my Republican colleagues at least on the intelligence committee believe there's any credence to let me ask you the basic question in your view how serious is the ongoing threat of election interference Christopher ray the director of the FBI said as recently as yesterday that the Russian efforts are ongoing by the way you know the Russian playbook is now out there so the expectation that the Chinese the Iranians the north Koreans other nations in an asymmetrical way may try to intervene in our elections is a very real ongoing threat senator many thanks thank you so much it's Virginia Democrat mark Warner we also invaded the Republican chairman of the intelligence committee senator Richard Burr to come on the show he

Tom, Turkey And NCR discussed on The Indicator from Planet Money

"Today is a very good day. Because today Darius we get to talk about new Tele Finally, I mean, I love new Tele I know you love new Bella. I mean, everybody loves new talents to love. But by supply of this beloved embrose, you'll chocolate paste, you could be under threat Stacey. And it's because of something that gives new Tele its characteristic flavor hazelnuts. Yes, he's nuts. Have a problem. A serious supply bottleneck more than seventy percent of the world's hazelnuts come from one place from Turkey. In fact, a quarter of the world's as on. That's come from just this one tiny town in Turkey, and that of course, leaves production and new Tele lovers everywhere very vulnerable. Right. I mean just a few years ago. There was an unexpected frost and Turkey that wiped out a huge chunk of the crop. And prices jumped like sixty percent and threatened a worldwide. Tele shortage that's like the fifth horseman of the apocalypse pestilence. Plague no new tell. And I mean, even in the best of times Turkey is, you know, a little bit of an unreliable Rulli. Turkish lira goes up and down the price of hazelnuts can fluctuate accordingly, and it, you know, it just leaves Packers and producers on the hook. But luckily for us one man is on the case today the show how one man's lifelong obsession with easel. Nets could help save new Tele and revolutionized an entire global industry.

NCR silver is simple to use saves. You time and helps you reach your goals faster NCR, silver, search NCR silver. I I met biologists. Tom Molnar in his office at the Rutgers University ornamental field lab, he was surrounded by these big plastic Finns just filled with thousands upon thousands of pavements. For example, here's one that has has ridges and lumps and to me. That's that's kind of an ugly looking hazelnut. Whereas something like this here, the really, shiny. And smooth for the past twenty three years. This has been Tom's life. Just sifting through endless piles of hazelnuts in search of that one perfect. Now, we mentioned that the hazelnut industry has a supply problem Turkey has a stranglehold on production. So the obvious solution to that problem would be to find a new place to grow hazelnuts and the east coast of the United States would be perfect perfect growing conditions, except for one thing we would have had a hazelnut industry in the northeast. If it wasn't for eastern Filbert play eastern Filbert plight. It's a fungal disease. It's native to North America. And it it grows under the bark of hazelnut trees, and kind of rots them from the inside infected trees, they develop these tail till cankers on their bark Tom actually took me out to his research orchard and showed me some of them firsthand. So as we look down here, you'll see that there's little fuss Joel's that poke out through. So those are like little mushrooms, those are the fruiting bodies where the scores. Actually be objected from and spread to other trees fruiting body, fungal pustule, go from new talent fruiting bodies. This fungus has been Tom's sworn nemesis for twenty three years that was when he got involved in this ambitious project to develop hazelnuts as this sort of like utopian post climate change food source. Yes. Because hazelnuts in addition to being delicious are this kind of miracle crop there. What is known as a low input crop. Meaning they can grow without irrigation without chemical fertilizers pesticides. And they can grow on. What is called marginal land? Landa would otherwise be useless. Plus, the harvesting of hazelnuts can be mechanized. So it doesn't necessarily require that much labor and a single hazelnut. Tree can be productive for up to a hundred years. The only problem they needed to solve to make this happen to cover the east coast with hazelnut. Trees was eastern Filbert blight and Tom's plan to do that was based on very simple yet revolu. Idea. See his aunts. They've grown naturally all over eastern Europe and central Asia for thousands of years. And so Tom figured that somewhere out there among the many millions of hazelnut trees, the gene for disease resistance that he needed was hiding like a needle in a massive haystack. So he set out to find that gene, we started in Moscow travelled south going through Krasnodar into Sochi and then into Crimea than we flew up to Romania and Moldova. The Poland and Belarus follow that up through the Baltic states Estonia, Latvia Lithuania for seven years, Tom traveled, all over the native hazelnut range collecting specimens, and this was not your typical horticultural fieldwork. I mean, it could involve everything from like haggling with merchants in a bizarre and who's Becca STAN to like sharing a glass of homemade vodka with little old lady at a roadside stand in Crimea once while crossing into Ukraine with eighty pounds of nuts in his suitcase. He. Even got shaken down by the local police they start screaming at me. They start screaming at my colleagues have guns, and this is silly. But at the same time, I had a suitcase full of all the nuts that I so desperately did not want to lose. So I'm nervous about the nuts. I'm nervous. We're gonna get robbed or worse. But you were more worried about the nuts than the money. I was very nervous about the nuts. Those were my babies. Those were his babies band is is really Portas heart and soul into this project. And he knew that in order to make a commercially viable nut. He needed that perfect combination of traits. And so after years of collecting all this genetic material he came back to New Jersey out to his research farm at Rutgers and he got to work breeding. Yeah. Apparently, Tom planted thousands of trees, and then expose them to the eastern Filbert blight and then just waited and season by season. He meticulously catalogued the growth of each individual tree. Taking note of you know, nut quality looking out for signs of disease.

So we are ready to put forward necessary regulation necessity investment for also all action plan for sustainable, finance or green finance is all about culture steer capital towards a green and sustainable goals as regards US. We actually sees that. It's a multi tiered story. A federal government and President Trump in detail announcers able to withdraw from ballot practice agreement. We seize actually, many states and cities are committed to do their part, actually. What is the urgency right now? John just as one example, and Mr Dombrovskis, I have to ask you this question. I saw imagery out on the web today of a worry about climate change global warming, and what it will do to world heritage sites in northern Scotland up in the northern ocean about rising oceans, I mean, it seems to be a new immediate. Well, indeed. And this is something which we saw also as a summer extreme was that events across the globe. And if he's things that seventeen out of eighteen hottest years have been in this century. We clearly sees the climate is changing as a time to act on. This is now within this, and I want to speak again to Europe and particularly to the Baltic states. I must note that I visited Helsinki this summer for the meetings between Mr Putin, and Mr. Trump, and I said, geez, I could move to Helsinki tomorrow. And they they they bothered. Mentioned to me. There was only twelve weeks of the year that it was this gorgeous. But within the Baltic states in the Baltic region. There has to be a new sense of investment in capitalism. How is that dynamic right now? Well, as an economic dynamic in Baltic region. Actually, it's developing quite strongly all Baltic states, economic girls all countries surrounding buzz about. Russia to have that growth or could you look west and self well, actually during lost a couple of years, the economy of Baltic states. Also Finland cut to be readjusted quite substantially because when you eat reduced sanctions against Russia concerning its violation sulphur. So the territorial integrity of Ukraine and when Russia introduce its retaliatory sanctions, countries, bordering Russia were mainly affected. So they needed to lose a major readjustment and also received in some sectors, you financial support to do. So. Within this mix are these meetings of the elites how far removed as a former prime minister, dealing with the politics of a nation and your case how far removed are the elites now from the public worldwide is that we would say in America, how gilded is this gilded age. Well, this is something which we need to address because indeed if you look at the public perceptions is public perception is there so what we are doing in Europe. Now, lease we are concentrating on what we call inclusive growth and a reduction of income inequality because when we talk about good macroeconomic data six year of economic goals to two to one hundred percent growth in Europe, all Member States back to gross. It's good. But people want to see Collins is to data triggers down to them. And that's what I have to admit. To admit talking about the gilded age in America from the palm court of the plaza hotel.

"Montenegro and. Chastising NATO for. Insufficient response to the Russian threat Then the president. Meeting with the Russian threat itself and the story became even more complicated we're going to concentrate on the NATO portion because, despite the sharp words traded these last were these last days to my knowledge the facts have not changed. NATO twenty nine now thirty countries does not support the level of investment and readiness and training and the vision that is comparable to what is on the other side of the Russian borders. Pod 2017 you all recall that exercise and Belarus last year that was up to one hundred thousand Russian military personnel participating in, what would be an, invasion of the Baltic states running into eastern Europe there is no comparable sense of anxiety or alarm in NATO that I could see from the reactions to The president's chastising we welcome cliff may the president and founder. Of the foundation for the defense of democracy cliff a very good evening to you I begin with an anecdote that I've learned in these last hours that on his way to the meeting. In Helsinki with President Trump President Putin his plane with the transponder on crossed over Estonian airspace without permission Gamesmanship at the top level are the Baltic states is NATO aware of how Russia is playing with them the way a cat toys with the mouse good evening to you Good evening to you I'm glad to be with you I certainly have the Baltic states are well yes I have to say that NATO officials must also be aware As you well know Russia under, Putin, has seized territory from two, of his. Neighbors Ukraine and Georgia those. Are not NATO members, I there is great, concern with, the Baltics which were for many years obviously part of the Soviet Union not willingly Baltics means Lithuania, and Estonia and the question is if Putin decided tomorrow you know let's. See what happens if I decide to send troops or a little green men in other words troops that are. Not visibly identified as rushing into one of those three let's see if NATO is willing to stand up to me because I think NATO will collapse given such pressure and I don't think there's. Been enough discussion of of what that would mean and. Whether NATO is up to the task and, my my fear is. That NATO is not up to. The task it's readiness capabilities simply or not, where. They should be so it's not just the the funding issue It's the the reports, that much of the, German capacity, for instance is not ready to have good equipment but it's not battle-ready so even if they were, spending more money would take quite a while 'til they would be prepared. To meet that kind of a challenge on the one hand and if if if the changes within the countries. Themselves do you see that the rise of authoritarianism and other things as a factor that will weaken NATO's ability happy right Malcolm and let me just give you some examples of that so so, it's clear for example Germany this is according to a. German ministry report that was issued last month They have, a one, hundred. Twenty eight typhoon jets of those how many ready for just thirty nine They have sixty two tiger attack helicopters how many ready for. Action twelve leopard tanks less? Than half one hundred. And five hundred? Twenty, four of its six submarines how many. Ready for action the answer..
