"We're recapping all of that yet again since people need to stay grounded in the big picture especially over the coming days as a media breathlessly follows the countdown to the end of august. All that comes after what's done is done any investigations. The republicans went into afghanistan must include. What trump did to set us up for all of this. Like trump was the best ally the taliban could hope for could the biden administration have waited a year to have stronger footing in terms of streamlining the visa program. I before pulling out of afghanistan spending time getting people out before drawing troops in providing air coverage. Yes would've would've come of course at the sacrifice of us soldiers especially since there is credible reporting that said. The taliban was creating casualties. Because russia put bounties on the heads of us soldiers for the taliban to kill it worked there casualties created because of that. It's a mess. Afghanistan was always going to be a mess. Please have empathy for reporters on the ground. Who are showing their humanity covering humanitarian crisis. The criticism i've seen richard angle of nbc news. Labeling him antibiotics or whatever for his criticism what was objectively speaking rushed withdrawal. Even cable by several people at the state department made that claim to the top brass at st richard angle reminds me of ukrainian journalists. String start of russia's invasion. Who are being snickered at by perl. Clutching american and british journalists stuck to their desks and western capitals far removed from the lived experience of senior hometown fall under occupation to a cruel sadistic terrorist regime let humans be humans especially in times of tragedy were not sports fans rooting for our favorite teams. What so many journalists on the ground go through leads to ptsd and since they are journalists who like to think of themselves as above the story not part of the story it can be hard for them to seek treatment or consider themselves quote unquote worthy of treatment given all the suffering. They've witnessed so let people have human reactions to human tragedy and try to put yourself in their shoes when they're literally in the middle of a humanitarian crisis. Hold space for them and don't let their point of view be a threat to your own security. Richard angles reporting from afghanistan. Isn't going to lose the twenty twenty. Two midterms for the democrats. Not passing voting rights legislation. The for the people act. And the john lewis voting rights act will lose the midterms for the democrats. That's what we all need to be focused on right now. In the end biden will be seen likely as having done the right thing of finally removing the us math ghanistan and he will also retain fair criticism for the withdrawal looking back on a show from earlier this year. I was right. When i said biden's born policy would be different. From obama's obama did the surge sending more and more troops fight and got us the hell out obama would trash talk putin and rain in germany and the rest of the eu to pass a meaningful sanctions against putin biden has shown putin the respect he so desperately craves and has let germany and the eu move forward with nordstrom to an economic weapon. That's happening as we speak. It's already been been used as a weapon now. The gives russia leverage over the eu. I always knew biden's foreign policy would be different from obama's but not in this way. He was always talking tough to ukraine about cleaning up its corruption and ukraine has been moving on that front in recent months. So that's good. There's hope that ukraine can be a model for the post-soviet block which is what russia's afraid of of course but it would be nice to see joe biden's foreign policy team stand up to the axes of autocrats and they can do that by pushing for much. Needed domestic reforms like breaking up big attack. Curbing disinformation on social media. Radio cable news bypassing a new twenty-first-century version of fairness doctrine to meet our needs today for real fair and balanced information coverage and get dark money especially foreign money out of our politics and for the love of god protect voting rights so biden and his teams both foreign and domestic can step up from this challenging time by leaving monumental legislation that secures our democracy. Our democracy will have a fighting chance without these sorely needed reforms. It's pre surrender. I do have faith. They're going to fight it out. Biden appointed some strong anti monopoly progressives to take on big tech no matter what one thinks. Abidance biden's afghanistan decision. One can argue that. It was a bold move biden. Has it in him to do. What's hard and make tough decisions. And for that. I give him the benefit of the doubt if he squanders the time he has left. He's leaving his grandchildren. And the rest of us trapped with dystopia in future. I mean the main point that. I wanna make yours. I know you're optimistic. A you're gonna talk about some of the You know initiatives being put forth in congress but all of that potential progress means nothing unless voting rights are assured and assured for twenty twenty two. Not just twenty twenty four ensured for the upcoming election which may cede control of the house to the republicans. And i agree with you. That i don't think at this point that afghanistan will be the defining issue other. God only knows because this could go in a number of very bad directions especially because they have not Fully evacuated americans from afghanistan. And i could easily see disastrous looming. I'm not even gonna get into that. Just something actually happens but this could have been you know a a spotless wonderful mission instead of the you know really catastrophic move. It was initially. They've obviously improved throughout the week. credit to them for that but even if it had been that if we lose voting rights if we lose the most basic and fundamental way to bring representatives in to bring policies that protect us. Then that's it and this is saw on. Voting rights is not new at all You know we've done many episodes on it. Many interviews with experts like ari berman and adam gentle sin about the filibuster. Like this has been a problem. They have known as coming for a long time. They still have not made progress on it. They still have not passed the most basic laws to protect bring back the rights. That were eliminated with the partial of repeal of the vr. A by the supreme court in two thousand thirteen are. They're so obsessed with afghanistan that people they've forgotten that such little progress has been made. And there's all this talk right now about you know the loss of american honor the loss of american pride in regard to us losing the war in afghanistan. And you know. Honestly i fi- i find this kind of talk bizarre. Because i'm just like well. Where was this honor. When were these winning words. Like what american is alive today to remember us winning big war like the only one in my lifetime was the brief gulf war of nineteen ninety nineteen ninety one which was accompanied by all these kind of lectures from boomers about how they learned lessons from the quagmire of vietnam and we would never experience another vietnam style war just as they learn the lessons of watergate and we would never experienced that level of explicit government corruption. That needs you to impeach the president. The president would obviously not commit such acts and would honorably remove those south. It's very funny to me when i think about this now. 'cause hearing all this bullshit when i was like you know twelve thirteen years. Old at the fucking. Anybody is talking about i knew about around contract. Knew that reagan's administration was corrupt. I didn't know the depth of anti got an older because the media behaves in the same way it does. Now it's all this kind of ask kissing and bullshitting covering their backs and not getting into the depths of the crisis..
"navalny" Discussed on Gaslit Nation with Andrea Chalupa and Sarah Kendzior
"Weapons as a matter of national security. Now is the time to get. Tough on the kremlin ukraine style. Or going to be stuck under republican. One party rule and putin will be gleeful. Yeah absolutely i. It's interesting that we're now at the thirty year. Mark of the collapse of the soviet union and the the independence of not just ukraine But a number of states That were part of the soviet union. And its you know. Received is kind of little fanfare in a very different from the twenty fifth anniversary of the twentieth anniversary. And i think obviously it's because we're dealing with a global plague with unparalleled rise in this century of autocracy with the basically the reversion of a lot of these newly independent states or satellite states From the worst pact countries like hungary and poland into more repressive forms of government Both depressing to look at and it's also being subsumed by all these greater global crises but it is I think essential to look at it. It's essential to revisit the question of who won the cold war. Because you've answered that question with what you were just saying. Corruption won the cold war. Mafia states won the cold war both in the former. Ussr and in the west. You know what we've seen over the last thirty years. Is that this division. That i think people like to make between oligarchs and plutocrats between You know the business world. The lissette or legal business world and the illicit world of the mafia and the underground that boundary was blurred long ago. And i think digital media and companies like facebook Or data mining companies like cambridge analytica and its successors brought that home. Even more and of course culminated in the twenty sixteen elections Both here with trump but also in the uk with brexit and. It's amazing to me that we are now five years after that point that point which we knew in real time you know marked the end unless there is going to be transparency unless there is going to be accountability and unless there is going to be an accurate historical narrative of how we got to this point to begin with and they're kind of was initially in two thousand sixteen there were things like the panama. There were emphasizing global corruption. offshore accounts. how that collides. With dictatorship how that collides with the loss of you know freedom of speech freedom of expression in all of these other basic rights. That had been suppressed in that people were so thrilled. Had finally come to the former soviet union and come to eastern europe and therefore eliminating the need for You know some east dot outlets but it's really grim. And i think everything that you just described with merckel and putin and nord stream two highlights that you know. They've decided to treat off all of our freedoms all of our progress all of our rights. We are increasingly all in the same sinking boat. And it's the literal sinking boat in the era of climate change climate catastrophe in the era of unparalleled fires and floods. And so you know this is the kind of stuff we talk about on a regular basis on gasoline nation. Severa if you're new to the show welcome. Welcome to the glitz I laid out in my book hiding in plain sight but it's distressing to see kind of the refusal to look at the big picture here. Because trump coming into power led to for example hollow the kovic pandemic was handled. It leads you how the twenty twenty election was handled in the very predictable. Very disastrous attempted coup the aftermath of that has led to other lack of accountability for the organizers of that attempted coup who were the same people who were involved in illicit activity during the two thousand sixteen election. People like roger stone or michael. Flynn or steve bannon. We're living in an era of utter lack of accountability and feel t to hostile. Foreign that is less accurately defined as a matter of you know state versus state than as a collaboration between the worst most corrupt and most hostile operators within those states. And again this is not a buried history. This is something we observed. In real time we documented it in real time and yet we are constantly confronted with the congress fainting selective amnesia over and over again feigning shock to avoid accountability because that allows them to make these kind of dirty deals Like they're doing with nord stream two like they're doing with basically overlooking extreme human rights violations. Not just from putin's russia but from saudi arabia from israel from other countries. You know that are involved in what we've described as a transnational criminal network very elite one a very high brow one when that wraps stealth in respectability politics but nonetheless is transnational organized crime. It is bizarre to me. That we had a kremlin acid inhabiting the white house for four years. And we all know this. This may sound like the controversial and contentious claim. It probably didn't sound like once a year ago or two years ago or three years ago or whenever you still had your last flickering faith in robert muller our institutions and institutionalists failed us. They helped the enemy. They helped suppress information. They helped make people not recognize what was immediately in front of that trump placating a foreign power prostrating himself to a foreign leader asking foreign leaders like putin for you know for example hillary clinton's emails at a press conference in two thousand sixteen having decade long histories with the russian mafia with russian oligarchs in his campaign. Stop of course did as well and ended up being indicted like this is not a mysterious crime in that sense What's mysterious about. It is the refusal to confront it or just kind of consider what are the ramifications of this for our national security now what are the ramifications for our foreign policy. It's just weird. It's not in the self interest of america were of the biden administration to look the other way. It never has been you know. The president of the united states with a foreign asset and the next administration came in and shrugged it off. They were putting a nail in a coffin with a vampire still breathing in grinning inside. That's the juncture that we're at right now and i know that there are all these other horrific crises that kind of you know. Prompt people that this desire to put this all in the past. But you can't because the crises that were experiencing now whether the pandemic or climate catastrophes or global corruption or the rise of autocracy are all linked to that election result in the administration that followed and the deals that were made under the auspices of that administration. So we need accurate history. We need to be looking back. And if you know the thirty year anniversary of the fall of the soviet union Somewhat illusory fall certainly in terms of surveillance mafia state corruption if that prompt some reflection then good but i fear it will. This episode of gasoline nation is sponsored by best fiends. A puzzle game. You can play on your phone. We're way past due for less.

Russian Parliament Passes Bill Barring Navalny Associates From Running in Elections
"Upper house of russia's parliament the federation council is not known for its stout defence of constitutional democracy from the ambitions of an overreaching executive even by those standards however the latest measure. They have waived through is an eye-opener. It would ban members and supporters of any organization designated as extremists from being elected to any public office.

Pro-Navalny Protests Sweep Russia in Challenge to Putin
European MPs Targeted by Deepfake Video Calls
"Someone impersonating a spokesman for imprisoned russian opposition figure alexander navalny conducted zoom meetings with european parliament members. The sessions featured. What the guardian and nl times called a deepfake video call purporting to be volley associate leonid volkov which volkov himself said looked pretty convincing. Speculation about responsibility for the incident has focused on vo van and lexus. Two well-known russian prank callers pranksters and such nuisance. Humorous are known. The incident is of course troubling for coming at a time when navalny is imprisoned and on a life threatening hunger strike and it's worth noting that relatively senior political officials were taken in by the scam but to place it in perspective. This is more shock jock stuff than it is a spore of new and devilish lena. Various approach to disinformation technically. It's a cut above the kind of jerk who had called the live news coverage to holler bubba buoy during the slow motion. Chase of oj. Simpson's bronco down the four zero five in los angeles but let's keep it in perspective. The lesson is that video that appears genuine alive call need not be and that some authentication beyond look and feel is necessary but we already knew that it's even become atropine gag insurance commercials where there's a guy video conferencing with his move colleague and so forth. At any rate on balance not very funny and vo von alexis themselves aren't novices. We note. they pranked to name. Just three sir. Elton john the duke of sussex and senator bernie sanders but of their targets have been critics of the russian regime. Mr putin himself has not been pranked and seems unlikely to be
Extremist Prejudice: Rebranding Navalny
"A ruling is expected today from a moscow court that would designate the movement of jailed. Opposition leader alexei navalny terrorist organization on friday. Mr navalny ended a twenty four day. Hunger strike that had carried him to the brink of death as he insisted on being seen by his own doctors across russia his supporters had faced arrest as they protested in moscow. They chanted freedom to novella and let the doctors in the increasing repression of those protesters and the threat of rebranding of the opposition as extremists come. As president vladimir putin's approval numbers continued to sink. The world wondered last week what he would do with. The hundred thousand troops massed at the border with ukraine. In the end they were pulled back. that's rattling and the poll. Numbers are all intimately connected to the threat. Now post to the group led by mr putin's most effective critic alexei navalny. He's decided to end his son destroyed because he felt the russian authorities have sufficiently satisfied. His demand demand was to be allowed access to independent medical. Care arkady ostrovsky bizarre russia editor. What they have done is they took him into a civilian hospital. He was examined by non prison doctors. There's non prison. Doctors then passed on all the results of his tests to navarre on his own physicians. His own doctors told him that if he didn't stop his hunger strike now they would soon have nobody to treat a all and in his instagram post which he pass through his lawyers he also said he was very moved by all those people who declared hunger strike in solidarity with him. He didn't want to cause other suffering so he thought it was the time given all those things to strike
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

He was arrested after returning from Germany, where he was recovering from a poisoning, which he blames on Russian President Vladimir Putin. Navalny is 44 Putin 68 As Lucy In Kim reports from Moscow. The conflict between the two men reflects, among other things, Ah generational divide in Russia. A week ago, the Russian Internet was burning up with social media posts about upcoming demonstrations in support of Alexei Navalny on Tic Tac. Ah young woman suggested protesters pretend they're Americans if they get arrested. Gave a crash course in American English. I'm gonna call my lawyer gun. I'm gonna call my lawyer gone it I'm going to after Navalny's call for protests, the authorities said more than 300 miners have been detained nationwide at rallies. Last weekend, State television went into overdrive did Chief Political Jagger which Slovenia believe teachers keep that feeling political pedophiles is how the host of the main weekend new show called Navalny and his team, he Katarina Schulman, political scientist in Moscow. Says the authorities are wrong to focus on minors. She says the protests were dominated by people between the ages of 25 45. There is no value conflict between the twentysomethings and their parents, but there is a very perceptible divide between those aged 55 plus and all the rest, she says. Russian society can be divided into a generation formed by the Soviet Union. And everybody else. It's like we have this very separate nation. I would call them so it's boomer generation. They are different from their own Children and from their grandchildren, In other words, is the difference between Russians who used the Internet and those who do not. Between Alexey Navalny and Vladimir Putin. Navalny, who's been banned from national television, has mastered the use of social media to launch his attacks on the Kremlin. His latest video, more powerful than any Tic Tac Post, has had 100 million views since his team posted it on YouTube last week. But if that's not well in the almost to our film, Navalny takes viewers inside a mysterious palace on the black seat he claims was built for Putin. For more than $1 billion is the hood of various gloves, Of course. Vladimir Putin.

With a line from a 1976 Soviet movie You Katarina Shulman says Putin's typical of the older generation that has lost touch with the rest of Russia. Generational change is inevitable. You can't fight it. It is bound to happen If Navalny can stay alive, she says he will be a part of Russia's future. Lucian Kim. NPR NEWS Moscow It's morning edition from NPR News.

We're the largest rallies of such type in years, Human rights groups said over 3700 people were detained. Navalny was arrested January 17th as he returned to Russia. From Germany, where he had spent nearly five months recovering from nerve agent poisoning that he blames on the Kremlin. Stewart Smith reports from Moscow. Tens of thousands turned out for the illegal rally in support of opposition activist Alexey Navalny, but it was quickly ended by police in a matter of hours with 1000 people arrested in the process. Supporters are calling for the release of Mr Navalny, who is being detained for breaking bail conditions ahead of a court hearing in February. The activist claims he was poisoned on the orders of President Putin last year, has says these latest charges are politically motivated.

Stewart Smith Moscow More on the weekend. Opposition demonstrations in Russia from reporter Simon marks the protests that swept the country, many of them taking place in sub zero temperatures led to more than 3.5 1000 arrests, and they raised questions about whether the opposition movement is catching fire now in its bid to challenge the leadership of President Vladimir Putin. Dr. Elena Benjamin is a senior lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University. It is complicated. I think that there's less support for him as a person than there is for some kind of, you know, change and also the fact that you know people are very, very much angered by how widespread and extensive corruption is. Regions being in power for a very long time. It's become a very sort of stagnant situation both politically but also economically, so I think people are fed up and I think the protests but also the way that people feel about politics or just the situation in Russia is less to do with novel being himself and what he stands for. He's more of a sort of a figure head at the moment, but it's more about you know the kind of Sort of longer, longer san are more widespread issues that people are concerned about. Alexei Navalny is expected to remain jailed until at least the middle of next month following his arrest when he flew back to Russia last weekend after recovering in a German hospital from a Kremlin assassination attempt.

"The world that he wasn't worried. It's just more doom The operator. This is my home. I've come back and they asked me. Are you afraid? I'm not afraid? I feel completely normal about going through passport control. I'll go through and I'll go home because I'm right. And I know that all the criminal cases against me are fabricated. All these scare tactics they've come up with are not true. I'm not afraid of anything. I ask you not to be afraid. Also Thank you very much. Let's go through passport country, But when he reached passport control, he was detained for what the Russian prison service has said was repeated violations of the terms of a suspended prison sentence. The economists are cardio. Ostrovsky was on the flight to Moscow with Alexi Navalny. What was it like Jamie? It was probably one of the most surreal flights you could imagine. And certainly the most. The real flight I've ever been on. It departed on time from Berlin Airport from a little terminal for low cost us. Away. The passengers were on board waiting for Navalny to come. He was the last to board I think he was with through by the German police and security services. Putin brought that fly the world applause. There were quite a few cameras on not just sort of mainstream media, but I think passengers were life streaming. Recording it on their phones on bodily didn't want Tioga during the flight. Understandably, he was sitting next to his wife. You'll hear on next to his press secretary. Everyone's waiting for the moment when the plane would start approaching Moscow on what would happen then very few people I think, in the know expected the plane simply to land at the airport of destination, which is of no cover airport, where the large crowd gathered to greet Navalny. And sure enough about 10 minutes before descend. The announcement came from the cockpit, saying unfortunate for technical reasons. We cannot land of new cover, working to circle around and then we might land is different Airport, which is what would happen, of course. That phrase in the Russian language, part technique, skimpy Gina for table reason could mean an awful lot of things. Count it. Yes, it was. Indeed for this nature skin between them on the flight landed in three minutes of airport now, in terms of what the Kremlin was trying to chief is, I think it was desperately trying to not allow the violin to have a picture, with his supporters stepping off the plane being greeted as a hero, and in a way they have achieved that they've landed the flight instrumental. Airport, not only was followed by a small group of journalists, he took some questions in front of a photograph that a panorama picture off the Kremlin in the background. But few minutes later, he went through passport control. I was right behind him. His lawyer went through Passport control. First novel only went second, and that's when he was stopped and detained. Whatever the Kremlin might be planning the purpose tonight was to prevent the picture off Navalny walking into walking free into Moscow and being greeted by the crowd and they've achieved that. Alexi Navalny is now in the gray zone and should next to the airport. We don't know what's going to happen to him. The Kremlin has a problem if they couldn't let him walk free. On. They didn't want to put him straight into jail on turn him overnight into international Mandela. I must say the reaction in Moscow has been quite tame. Well, that was Carly Ostrovsky, who was on board that flight with Alexi Navalny. Let's speak to our Moscow correspondent Sara Rainsford now, Sarah what was going on in Moscow as those people were waiting for him to arrive. Well, there was the crowd in Vnukovo Airport, of course, some something like 2000 people who turned out the lot of them. Supporters of Mr Navalny who'd come from across Russia, different towns outside Moscow to to be there of new cover. Airport, but they were met by Busses of riot police, too. And basically the right place eventually moved in and started pushing the crowds out of the airport into the freezing Moscow night. It was minus 20 or so Today, here in Moscow, and then some of them found their way once they found out that Mr on his flight was being diverted. They tried some of them to make a mad dash by car to ship him into the airport across the whole city, But they actually found that their way was blocked by police. So even the roads have been blocked, which is quite extraordinary. That Man that the Kremlin says repeatedly is a nobody. And in fact, the man whose name Vladimir Putin won't utter, and even his press secretary won't say out loud because he wants to downplay his significance. Whose A man who somebody or many people went to a whole lot of trouble to try to scupper his sort of hero's homecoming today. And do we know where he is tonight? No, I don't think we do or certainly we didn't from not very long ago. That was the big question that Mr Obama's team and his supporters were asking He was taken away. His lawyer wasn't allowed Todos with him with the police. In fact, the police didn't if even initially say why he was being detained, they simply said Asking you to come with us for further. Um, the proceedings basically, hey, went quietly kissed the Union of Ana. Goodbye. They obviously were prepared for this. And in fact, there was a new arrest warrant. It was had. Bean already issued Mr Navalny before he even landed, So he knew he was going to get arrested. It was just a question of how and where that would happen. And as you say President Putin does not pronounce his name. He is he who shall not be named for the Kremlin, but any sense that there will be official. Reaction to this. Well, Dmitri Peskov, the press secretary for Mr Putin, when he was asked about it by journalist today, uh, feigned complete ignorance, he said. What was he arrested in Germany?.

"Note to bring you actually from the Reuters news agency. It's being announced that we've been talking about the UK variant is we're calling it this supposedly more infectious. Very into the Corona virus, and both the company's behind the first two vaccines to be announced That's visor and Madonna of both released statements, saying that they are testing their vaccines to see if they work against the new mutated version of the virus. That, of course, is being one of our questions throughout whenever, when spoken to scientists. Does the new variant mean the vaccines won't work? Well, both Madonna and Fizer, in their statements say that they expect that it will be, but it will be very interesting to see what the results of that are. Now we end actually going here. A very good joke, a Russian joke in about six or seven minutes and it made us laugh when we heard earlier in the program, but we're basically talking about this extraordinary phone conversation. Phone conversation initiated by the Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny. Now you'll probably remember the Valley survived an assassination attempt in the summer after being poisoned with the nerve agent Nava Chop he and several security agencies in the West Have blamed Russian security forces, but no countries investigating it. So Mr Navalny, with the help of the Belling Cat investigative website, decided to try to find out a bit more proof himself. He investigated his own attempted assassination. Now Belling Cat had managed to identify some of the team that they said had been trailing Navalny actually over years. So Mr Navalny called him up and pretended to be a senior security official investigating why the poisoning didn't work. Now. One of the people who picked up the phone has been identified as Constantine could be upset. Um, and he ended up having quite an open chat for 49 minutes about the details of the attempt to kill Alexei Navalny with Alexei Navalny. Well, they thought it was someone else amongst the conversation at the agent revealed that the toxin was actually planted in a pair of novelties. Navalny's boxer shorts. Okay, then tell me what kind of clothes it was applied on. What was the main focus? What's the riskiest piece of closing in theory? Well, underpants trough the underpants. There we have We now all know the Russian for underpants, the security services. The FSB has said that the entire phone conversation which you can find on the Belling Cat website, and Mr Navalny's website as well on the video associate ID is a fake, created by Western Security services, Welp. A bit earlier on the program. We spoke about the conversation with a man who was sitting next to a Alexei Navalny during the phone conversation. He is crystal gross. If he's one of the lead investigators at Belling Cat thistles what he had to say. First of all, the investigation was very well prepared, but it was theoretical. I mean, we just put a lot of data out there, we said Here's a pattern is a highly correlated movement of people around the value at any time that he felt a bad in this particular time he was poisoned. But before on a couple of times, he also felt sick. And they were always there. 37 times Over the last four years, these people traveled with him. So it was a very theoretical investigation, then suddenly We hear from from the guy who is one of the eight people who always tailed him for the last four years, a complete confession so that that was a surreal moment when you hear yourself that the output of York theoretical work is confirmed by somebody who was one of the killers because what you were getting is you were getting names confirmed. You were getting places confirmed. There's a very amusing moment when Navalny and his victim Have a sort of a misunderstanding about whether he was in Omsk or Thompson, which sounds almost like a sort of a back and forth sort of comedy routine. But it's far from comedy. Because here is Alexey Navalny talking to one of the people. Who bluntly wanted him dead. I mean, that's the allegation. What was it like for Navalny to be in character for 49 minutes and have that conversation? I have to say that it was not something he expected with with actually work out because the reason why we met that four in the morning German time was toe record him confronting his would be killers and asking them. I'm the volunteer. Why do you try to kill me? And most people just find up straight away, Didn't they? Mostly, exactly right. So for one of them, he decides to go a different route that he says. Well, let me just prank this guy and see what happens And I told him this is not going to work. There's no way that these highly trained up is the ultimate this. They're going to fall for that. He said. Let me try so he just went in, and it worked. It lasted five minutes. I couldn't believe my my years that it's still working. It lasted a total of 49 minutes. The reason why it worked out is because navalny actually quite well impersonated the style of the military bullying tactic. And he was just saying I need your report by eight o'clock in the morning. You know what my bosses like. I need you to tell me what happened from that mission. Critical but emotionally, I mean, t hear the man say is he doesn't one point in the conversation. What went wrong, sir? Is that If we hadn't landed the plane, Maybe there would have been a different effect. Now. The different effect means maybe would have killed Navalny. What was it like? When you put the phone down after 49 minutes? What did he do? What did he say? We just stared at each other for five minutes. We couldn't believe that this will transparent And to me. That was the most shocking moment When the valley had to actually hear report about white was terrible that medics came and treated that guy. Why does terrible the plane landed the the airplane? The pilot landed the plane too early. He had to hear this himself as if it was a bad thing. It was terrible. It is extraordinary, also the details. I mean, he's very clever in the Valium amazed that you say that he was basically making this up on the fly, because let's talk about the underpants. There's a moment when he seems to be. He seems to be inviting the FSB man almost to make a mistake He's saying so. So Hang on. You put the poison on the underpants, and we just heard the clip. Just now. What color were the underpants? They were gray, weren't they? Exactly. That was an amazing moment. I didn't realize in real time that he's misleading the the officer because he knew that he was in blue underpants at the time that he ended up in a coma, and he just said, great in order for the guy to actually volunteered information. There were many times during the cold where there were slight mistakes being made. Some of them were accidental. Others were not with one purpose in order for the guy to actually volunteer certain names. In fact, for example, we hear it from him the name of his boss for the president. We didn't volunteer. That the person over running the operation much uncle, we heard from him the name of the second agent who was in Tom's running the operation also both. And then he added two names that we didn't even have a clue about in our investigation that we followed up on that. So you're now able to sort of put more of the pieces together. What do you do with this first off? What kind of a splashes it made in Russia. And I ask that because there's a moment isn't there When Kudryavtsev the agent says, Ah, yeah, I know it didn't go well, officer, you know, I read the Internet as well. So he's been following the news That hasn't been reported in Russia because it hasn't been a story in Russia has been a huge story outside, but not in Russia. But he's being following it on the Internet have other people. Also other Russians being following the story of this of this prank call? Well, I think it's the biggest story that has ever happened in Russian last 20 years. Based on the reaction that I've been falling since yesterday, there's a whole new set of icons of the multi corns on on the Russian on telegram, which is one of the Russian most popular messaging gaps that totally stemmed from this conversation. There. There there means I mean, there's one of the new means, and I think this extremely damaging to the Kremlin is the falling. First of all. It's a background in the coal. You would hear that the FSB sent two teams to homes where the hospital is in order to wash his underpants to Washington is independent of any traces..

Alexei Navalny has exposed corruption among Russia's leadership and is one of Russian President Vladimir Putin's fiercest critics and political opponents. Rob Schmitz. NPR NEWS Berlin The mayor of Seattle has voted her city's latest vetoed her city's latest budget page Browning of member station Kuo w. Over reports the proposal included police staffing cuts. Seattle City Council passed bills this month to cut 100 officer positions, lower the salaries of commanders and spend more money on community programs. Friday, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan vetoed those plans. She says she's worried about police union backlash and wants to collaborate with the council. Instead, I do not believe the 2020 budget in its current form moves us closer to those shared goals.

"And by the listeners of K Q. E. D. Good morning. It's Friday morning. The time Now it's 7 34 back to morning Edition. This is morning edition from NPR News. I'm David Greene in Culver City, California and I'm Steve Inskeep in Washington, D C. Russia's leading opposition figure is in a coma staff for election of all, They believe someone poisoned the tea he drank. At an airport cafe before he boarded a domestic flight in Siberia. The United States has made no official statement about this. Although White House National Security advisor Robert O'Brien spoke on Fox News He's a great, very courageous man. He's a very courageous politician to have stood up to put inside Washington and our thoughts and our prayers are with him and his family. Let's go to NPR. Moscow correspondent Lucien Kemi there, Lucien Morning critical question. Where is Navalny and and who's treating him? Alexei Navalny right now is in a hospital in the Siberian city of Omsk, which is more than 1000 Miles east of Moscow. He's there because he was on a plane flying back to Moscow when when he fell unconscious and The plane had to make an emergency landing there. He's in a coma. As you mentioned he's hooked up to a ventilator in the intensive care unit. Navalny's press secretary, says the hospital is not properly equipped and that his life is in danger. The doctors there say they have found no trace of poison and that he's been diagnosed with some kind of metabolic disease caused by low blood sugar. This is really contradictory information because officials have told Navalny's colleagues that in fact a toxic substance had been found and that it's so poisonous that people around him have to wear protective suits. Wow, which is something you wouldn't miss if you were there, But I guess this is a moment to note he's still inside Russia. We therefore don't really have independent information about his continuing condition or an independent way to verify this doctor's claim that there's no No poison. Wasn't he supposed to be moved out of Russia? Exactly. I mean, that's what Navalny's people have been trying to get since yesterday. They say that all the permits were about to be issued. And at the very last minute, the doctors there in Omsk refused to let him be transported. Navalny's wife, Julia, who traveled to Siberia says the doctors are stalling basically in the hope that this poison in his body will break down and that any clues will be lost. Cole. If he moved to another country, his body itself would would be potentially evidence against Russian President Vladimir Putin has had quite a number of political opponents. Well, they were poisoned in various ways over the years. That's right. So what leverage does Germany have to get him out of Germany is where he would go well. Germany does have leverage. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has a very cool relationship with President Putin, but Germany as a country has very close business ties to Russia. Just one example is the pipeline that the two countries are building connecting Russia to Germany yesterday, a miracle came out and said publicly she was shocked by the news of Navalny's illness, and she'll insist on getting to the bottom of what exactly happened. She also said Germany was ready to provide medical treatment. And now we're hearing that there is, in fact, a plane in alms waiting to take him to Germany. Okay, So then there's the question of whether it gets permission to take off. What is the Kremlin have to say about that? The Kremlin is really allergic to anything having to do with Alexei Navalny. Ah Vladimir Putin doesn't even mention Navalny's name. State media has covered this A little bit of one news Bolton I saw on state TV yesterday referred to know Navalny as a blogger, but certainly not as a politician. Putin's spokesman has said the Kremlin is following Navalny's condition via the media and that they have nothing against him getting treatment abroad. Today he Said the question of Navalny's transportation out of the country is really a decision for doctors. He also said that doctors from Germany in arms had been invited into the hospital.
