"Was up to end including selling things on the black market to buyers representing the Red Army. General Knox, the senior British military official attached to kolchak, was jokingly referred to as the quartermaster general of the Red Army. And at one point, Trotsky sent a note to Knox teasingly thanking him for helping equip the Red Army. In the coming battles many Red Army soldiers marched out wearing British manufactured uniforms. Now beyond the corrupt greed of the people in omsk, the white forces made themselves hated wherever they went. Everything I've just said about Red Army abuses applies just as much to the white armies. Their armies were also built on forced conscription at gunpoint or bayonet point. With their supply lines being so long they too had to requisition food from the locals, they too used abuse, torture and executions to extract food supplies and anything else they could carry off. When people resisted, villages were burned and people were shot. On market days, white army cavalrymen would come around in conscript young men into the army. Many of these conscripted soldiers promptly deserted as quickly as they could, taking with them even more uniforms and equipment and weaponry over to the side of the reds. So, in all those respects, the abuse of the peasantry basically. White, or red, it was all the same. But in the final analysis, the reds still wound up looking like the lesser of two evils. This was because kolchak's forces were viewed fundamentally as restorationist in their aims. Because even if they weren't fighting for the romanovs or anything like that, they absolutely refused to recognize the revolution in land that had taken place since 1917. So wherever white armies went, officers and officials tried to reinstate the old economic order, and especially west of the Ural Mountains, they threatened to take away the land that had been taken over by villages and give it back to the previous owners. And so for as much as the local peasantry didn't like the red commissars..

The man we normally associate with cars and increasingly rockets from Mountain View, California I'm joined by the writer Ashlee Vance, author off along Mask How the billionaire CEO of Space X and Tesler. Is shaping our future. So actually, how was his debut? Well, Yeah, I thought it went a lot better than it could have was, you know, he was pretty funny. I thought he came off is somewhat sympathetic and entertaining. And, yeah, you know, I was. I thought it might be a bit of a disaster, but I think it ended up pretty well, yeah, and a lot of the headlines surrounding his admission he has Asperger's Yeah, you know, he's never talked about. He's never said those words publicly before. I was quite surprised. I never even my conversations with him. He's never really admitted to that fully. I think even to himself, so that was a very surprising thing to have come up on a comedy show of all places. And what was he like? What was the one liners and singers were they there? Yeah. I mean, I thought, you know, they made some fun of himself for being a bit of a covert truth or over the last year and some of his other, you know, wackier ideas. And so, um, yeah, I think being self effacing was probably the right way to go on, dear. A couple really funny skits, especially one where they have a colony on Mars. I thought that was the best one. Well, right, he well, he's gonna get there isn't a space X, but it's not.

And ill on somehow has spent the last few months promoting this thing, and it's created this cult like atmosphere. Others Coid, and so there were there. Were you no more than a couple jokes aimed at Don's coined during through the show. Well, you mean the serious side is it had gone up in In value considerably, but largely on the back of his tweeting about it, and it seems it's going the other way. Yes, I looked so it's up 21,000% since he won started tweeting about it, but what he was on the show yesterday. It actually went down a little bit. And then he said it was a hustle exhaust with the hustle. Yeah, but then today, Space X just announced that they're going to fly a mission to the moon next year with a payload that the company buying the launches is paying in. Does coin. So the hustle lives the hospital, right? I can't just very briefly. For the uninitiated. I mean, getting the 79 like live gigs gets pretty big deal, isn't it? It is a big deal. It is really unusual to have someone like you on on that usually an entertainer or an athlete. Sometimes a politician. I think Donald Trump about 20 years ago was the last titan of business or even business person to be on there. And so you know, you want to turn into a bit of Coke figure He's kind of bigger than attacking. Well, who.

"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..

"Russian spy unwittingly revealed how Russian agents nearly killed opposition leader Alexei Navalny back in August when they placed the lethal nerve agent Nova shock inside Navalny's underpants. Even stranger. The spy disclosed that detail to navalny himself who was Impersonating a high ranking Russian official on the phone. CNN's Cloris Award broke this story in collaboration with the investigative outlet Belling Cat and Dirt Spiegel, and she joins us via Skype. Claressa welcome. Thank you so much for having me on Peter, and let's start with a little more context. Here. Back in August, Navalny was flying to Moscow from the city of Tomsk when he became very ill on the airplane, And here he is recounting that moment. To you. Let's listen. I get out of this bus room tone over to the flight attendant and said him I was poisoned. I'm gonna dive and then then I lay down under his feet in tow to die. So the pilot then diverted the plane to the Russian city of Omsk Navalny survived. He's now in Germany. But tell us what you learned about the days and hours leading up to that moment on the airplane. I mean, you know, it's just been extraordinary to get this kind of insight into how an elite team of FSB Russian State Security service operatives With a specialty in chemical weapons, many of them doctors, scientists operating out of the UN remarkable Moscow suburb were able to essentially trail Navalny's every move for more than three years. Then, as you said in August, Navalny became very sick on the way back from Tomsk on this flight, and the Germans once he was able to be transported to Germany confirmed that he had been poisoned with not be chock. We now know that that Na'vi chalk was planted. In Navalny's underpants If you can believe that, Wow, What is that? Details say to you. So we spoke to a lot of experts about this to try toe understand it better both from the point of view of understanding whether the intention was to kill or possibly just incapacitate. And by the way, all of them agree. You can only really be looking to kill when you're using Na'vi chalk outside of a laboratory. But also to get a better sense of why would they put Nova Chuck in the underpants? And particularly this one operative describes in this now famous phone call to Alexei Navalny were Navalny was posing as a senior national security aide conducting an investigation into the operation. He tells him. Listen, we put it on the underwear on the inside seems of the crotch area and experts Have told us that the groin area is particularly porous, particularly susceptible. This kind of poisoning, So they certainly knew what they were doing it as you say It was navalny himself, who was able to coax these details out of this agent who was a part of this toxins team. Why didn't have only do that? How did Navalny do that? So when I was in Moscow last week with my team, we all set about trying to confront some of the people that through this investigation with Belling cat we have been able to identify as part of this FSB toxins team. Then they landed on this idea of pretending to be someone high up within the Russian hierarchy, and they were able to disguise Phone number they were using to make it look like they were calling from an FSB landline. And if you listen to the conversation, it's it's something like 45 minutes long. It does take a while to persuade this operative his name is constant included. It's if he graduated from the Russian Academy of Chemical Defense. It does take him a while to be persuaded that it's OK for him to have this conversation on an open line. With navalny, But once he starts talking boy, does he start talking? Well. Vladimir Putin himself has said that if his agents wanted to kill navalny, they would have done it. So what do you make of that reaction in Russia? About how high up this operation went in the government? Well, I mean, this puts the Kremlin in an extraordinarily embarrassing and uncomfortable position because just last week, President Putin, responding to our reporting, said, What's the big deal? So what the FSB were following Navalny? That's normal because he works with us intelligence services. That doesn't mean they poisoned him. Well, fast forward just a few days, And here we are with concrete evidence that in fact, that team of operatives who were following him did poison him. And so how on earth does the Kremlin go about wriggling out of this one, Essentially I will say that unlike last week where it was much more silent, and the Russian media and people weren't really talking about it, perhaps because they were fearful this time, people are starting to talk about it. We've already seen Russian journalist trying to go to the address off. This could threats at this operative who unwittingly confessed to Alexei Navalny. And I think it's going to be very difficult for the Russian government to put this genie back in the bottle. Just briefly, Claressa. It is amazing to see you sitting there in front of Alexei Navalny, who had gone through such a tremendously traumatic ordeal on this airplane getting poison. He's been a thorn in the side of Vladimir Putin for many years. It's amazing that he's still alive. How is his health? How's he doing? He has made nothing short of a miraculous recovery, and all of his doctors say the same thing. What is even more extraordinary is that Alexei Navalny is still planning to go back to Russia. He says. He's a Russian politician. He belongs in Russia, and he would never give Putin such a gift, he.

"The Russian opposition politician, Aleksei Navalny, has accused the Russian authorities of being behind his poisoning. In his first video interview since he was released from hospital in Germany. German doctors who treated Mr Navalny say he was poisoned with a nerve agent Nav it shock He fell ill on a flight from the Russian city of Tomsk to Moscow, and he described the experience during his interview with the popular Russian blogger, Yuri Dude, how loudly I was dripping in cold sweat. It's a very strange feeling. Several people have asked me what it's like to almost die from Novi Chuck. It's difficult to explain, because it's something that you don't experience in everyday life. There are some things that you haven't experienced. Thank God like having a heart attack or your leg chopped off with a chainsaw. But in general, you can imagine what it would be like to have your head cut off with a chainsaw Here. You're in a cold sweat. You feel really l left Tombstone Lucid. So how did mr Navalny look on DH sound? Steve Rosenberg is the BBC's Moscow correspondent. He sounded like normal. Really. I mean, considering what he's gone through the poisoning by novice shock the coma. Clearly his health is improving. Although he says his hands still shake. He's undergoing physical therapy in Germany and possibly another two months of that. To come. But he was clear He was lucid and he really painted. I think a fascinating and at times terrifying picture of what it's like actually to be poisoned by Na'vi Chock you remember he was flying. From Siberia to Moscow back in August, when he fell ill, and in this interview, he talked about coming out in a cold sweat on instead of feeling pain, he said he was basically consumed by this. Feeling this growing feeling that he was going to die as if his body was just telling him. This is the end, And he said that that was worse than pain, Of course. Then the plane made an emergency landing. In the Siberian city of Omsk. And he was hospitalized there. And in the interview, he says that he believes the Russian authorities delayed his medical evacuation to Germany. In order that the traces of knobby chalk in his body would disappear by the time he arrived in Germany that he claims in the interview, so it was a very interesting Picture of events he painted, and as for his return to Russia, did he have anything to say on that? What he said in recent days and weeks? Actually, that he has every intention off returning to Russia. Certainly his colleagues his friends. Supporters believed that the Kremlin would prefer it if you remained outside the country didn't return, but he has made it very clear. That his intention is to come back and to continue his activities. He's Russia's most prominent opposition activists, and he clearly gets under the skin off the Russian authorities on the Kremlin. You never hear President Putin, mentioning Alexander finally. By name, so at some point we expect he will come back here. It's interesting who he chose to give that interview to a swell, wasn't it? Yeah, absolutely. I mean, you re Dude is an extremely popular young journalist Ah, star of YouTube and his interviews with top politicians. Top stars are incredibly popular on the Internet. He gets huge views huge numbers of use for the interview, so it's interesting that he chose to give that the first video interviewed not to a TV company, but to someone who's popular on the Internet. And as for the reason why he was poisoned me with the Kremlin basically accused him of poisoning himself. What do you have to say on on that? Well, he lost that off. I mean, he says he clearly points the finger of blame at President Putin, he says it would have been the Russian president who would have had to sanction the use of a military grade nerve Asian like naughty Choc against him.

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

Putin adversary Navalny was poisoned, German medical team concludes

"The Berlin hospital Sharat treating the seriously ill Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny says he appears to have been poisoned The statement from the hospital Clinical evidence suggests an intoxication for a substance belonging to the group of Kyle Aloneness draw star ASI inhibitors, But doctors who treated him in Russia say the substance was not present. Mr Navalny fell ill on an internal flight in Russia on Thursday. Paul a very good evening to you. The headline from BBC is cautious about Navalny's. Certainly there is Logic to the fact that he was poisoned. You explicate that in your hill piece about the pattern in Russia. What do we know now, about the substance that they found in his body that the Russians say is not there And the Germans say is good evening to you. Good evening, John. Yeah, You and I are both reading from the official press release of charity. And although the languages muted their very clear that they did find this variant of sarin poisoning in his body. Um Moscow is saying, Whom are we to believe? Are good Doctors in in ER didn't find such poison in his body. So there must be something wrong in Germany. That's the official Kremlin line right now. I understand. He was on a flight from in Siberia from Tom's for Omsk. And then several days later, after the offer by Macron of France and Miracle of Germany, he was thrown out of Russia and to this hospital in Berlin. You're a piece in the Hill, though, is helpful, not just in background of who is navalny and wise in trouble, but also the pattern. You name Politkovskaya and names off and then we should also mention Lynn Finance Co. All of them. Either poisoned or brought down by gunfire. Notable opposition to Vladimir Putin or to the Kremlin general is Is this a personal opposition to Putin? Or is it to the whole apparatus ball? Um Navalny has been known for quite a while as the top opposition figure in Russia, particularly after the assassination of Borys himself. So he's practically the last standing, um, opposition figure to Putin. Uh, he himself is not able to run for office because He was convicted on some trumped up charge of corruption and as such, he could not himself. Hub. Be an elected official. But his strategy which Putin was quite worried about was organizing, Um opposition candidates picking the best shot to compete in elections and so forth. Ah, and this activity um some suspect including myself. Ah worried Putin because of his declining writings and the ability of his candidates to win in these regional elections, So it's a fairly complicated story. The other targets of what looked to be a political assassination puller Politkovskaya, As I recall, she was a journalist working on the allegation that Mr Putin had been connected in some fashion. To the destruction of of residents in Moscow that led to a great number of deaths that at the time this involved the Chechen war. Nemtsov was associated with opposition to Putin, as well in lynchpin in co was living in London at the time working for an oligarch who had fled and he was poisoned. Famously with a horrible Ah, horrible radiation poison. So my pattern looks to be that someone's running this Paul are the is this Is this just a piece of the larger story of how politics has done in Russia that you kill people is well, a cz defeat them at the polls. Well, killing opponents is nothing new to Putin's Russia. The list he went through our only the most prominent ones. One can put together a list of 10 15 Mohr. Ah, in fact, um Russia, I believe is the second most dangerous place in the world for reporters. So if you look at all of the cases that you mentioned, you can come up with a reason why Putin was worried about him why he needed to eliminate him. So the big problem in the West, however, is that Although we know that such things do not take place without the approval from the highest levels. This cannot be proven in a court of law. So if you look at the little opinion could case and another case, there's also this script Paul case where they A father and daughter survived. The courts come down with convictions. Or the actual killers who are safe back in Russia. And then they say, well, likely this could not have happened. Without approval from the highest levels, but they can't Use that, um, insight to convict Putin. So, So far, Putin has survived all these assassinations. Quite well, I would say. My measure of Mr Putin is that he has arranged the Constitution so that he has atleast another two terms. Ah, that would make the opposition to Putin self destructive, wouldn't it, Paul? I mean, are we looking at people who are Destroyed by a machine that is dominant and and not showing any weaknesses. Well, Putin is showing weaknesses and this may be may explain the timing of the of the attempted killing of of the volunteer. By the way, the plan Clearly was he was going to get on that airplane in Tom's fly nonstop to Moscow, which is around the 45 hour plus of flight, and he would not have survived that flight. So the fact the plane Did this landing emergency landing in all saved his life. And so were it. Not for that he would be he would be dead, but Putin is showing distinct signs of weakness. Um, the, uh, demonstrations in a bottle. Car Ongoing They're not diminishing. By the way. The what The demonstrators were shouting Now in a bottle is Mr Putin. We invite you to tea. Which is quite telling, uh so it was. It was T that was a suspect for having poisoned Navalny and was T that poison Litvinenko as well in mass in London. Yeah, it's important to add that for them for the listeners, Uh, so he has the problems in a bottle. Which could be a spark, which could set off the entire far east of the Russian republic. He has the problems in Belarus, uh, which Navalny was contributing to, um, which is very much like a color revolution, which is Putin's biggest fare for himself that he will be thrown out by, uh um, demonstration said reached the hundreds of thousands So Putin is not in a good position right now. And there was this fear that he could actually start losing control of regional legislatures.

"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 Putin inside Washington and our thoughts and our prayers are with him and his family. Let's go to NPR. Moscow correspondent Lucien Kamei 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, Yulya, 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, 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 almost 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 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 Omsk have been invited into the hospital. Okay, Lucien. Thanks. Thank you. That's NPR's Lucien Kim in Moscow. President Trump's former political adviser, Steve Bannon, pled not guilty yesterday to criminal fraud and money laundering charges.

"One of the fiercest critics of Russian President Vladimir Putin is in a coma in a hospital in Siberia. His colleagues believed that Alexei Navalny was poisoned. Two years ago, Navalny tried to run against Putin in presidential elections, but he wasn't allowed to register as a candidate for the latest. We're joined now by NPR's Lucien Kim in Moscow. Hey, Lucien. They also so how much do we know about what happened? I mean, how did Navalny end UPIN, a hospital more than 1000 Miles east of Moscow. Well. This morning he was flying back to Moscow from Siberia with his press secretary, Cura Yaar Mish. He felt ill lost consciousness and the plane had to make an emergency landing in the city of Omsk. Where he was taken to a hospital. The doctors there have been pretty tight lipped, but Yaar Mish spoke to a Moscow radio station this morning with the traveling, you know, even though she said she's sure Navalny was poisoned, and that this was already the second time, she says the first time was a year ago when he was doing jail time during protests in Moscow. The official diagnosis back then, was that he had an allergic reaction. Okay, So, as we said Navalny has been a leading critic of Putin for several years now, can you just tell us more about who he is and what he's has said about Putin. Sure, Navalny is probably the most colorful and prominent opponent, President Putin has had in his 20 years and power. Navalny is an anti corruption campaigner and politician. But what makes him so successful is his mastery of social media and grassroots organizing. Even as you mentioned his presidential campaign went nowhere. He has a nationwide network of activists and thanks to the Internet, really a reach to the farthest corners of Russia. It's fair to say that Navalny, who is 44 has inspired and really energized a new generation of Russians who view their government very skeptically. Well, it is well known that many people who have crossed the Kremlin have been poisoned. So does this case with navalny fit into that larger pattern? You think Well, Unfortunately, there's there is a long list of Russians who have fallen ill or even died after being poisoned. The most recent example, of course, is the incident in Salisbury, England, where a former Russian spy and his daughter were poisoned. On. That was just the latest of several incidents just in the U. K. In Russia. A number of opposition figures have also been poisoned. The Kremlin, for its part, says it's way too early to say that Navalny was poisoned. Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, spoke to reporters today. Oh, my Uh, I'm staying in, He said the Kremlin is monitoring the situation and that if necessary, the Kremlin doesn't have anything against navalny getting treatment abroad as any Russian citizen has the right to do. No, I understand that there are plans to evacuate Navalny to Germany for treatment there. Possibly. Earlier today. One of Navalny's doctors said that he hoped Navalny could be treated in a clinic in France or Germany, not because Russian doctors wouldn't be able to cure him. But because the chances are much higher foreign doctors will be get will be able to get to the bottom of what caused his illness. Later, we heard from the leaders of Germany and France that they are ready to help provide him with medical care, even political asylum. And now activists in Germany who helped treat another Russian poison victim say they have a plane ready to go and get him as soon as the Russians given permission. That is NPR's Lucien Kim in Moscow. Thank you, Lucien. Thanks, Elsa. Tantrums Toe eye rolls. Many kids are fed up with virtual learning, but two high school cheerleading coaches their kids call them. Mrs. Williams and Mrs Evans in Albany, Georgia, had an idea to get kids back in the game,.

To think of all these things being made into something because for years we never got things really that we like to read be made. And, yes, well, speaking of things that are we'd like to see get made. I mean, I think I don't know if people realize that Tom Hanks is a World war two. Buff, and it comes across in his movie making, and he also was instrumental in the bill, raising the money for the World War two museum in New Orleans. And that is an amazing museum when you contract will again one of the cool things, and this was a Tom Hanks idea is that he when you go to that museum There's like three sections of the museum, and one is devoted. To the year of what they call the European Allied theater. Then there's the Pacific Allied Sugar and the Atlantic Allied Theaters so that you can see all the ways that the world was fighting during World War during World War two. And so he that was something that he did in his museum. So it's interesting because you know when you think of Tom Hanks's Movie. I mean, the Pacific Band of Brothers of Saving Private Ryan. Well, this movie Greyhound, which was supposed to be released in July by Sony Pictures. 450 screens. It got moved. They sold it to Apple. Plus because they're I guess Apple paid the money for Greyhound. But this is Tom Hanks is World War two movie, which gives respect. To a part of the war, which is not well known, and that's the Atlantic Allied Theater, how they fought. On the Atlantic, and you guys know Casey and I were just like, I don't know.

Yeah, because it is all shot on the water. There's just one little opening scene at Christmas in a fancy hotel lobby, and then the whole rest of the movie is you were on the North Atlantic and it tells the story. Basically of what was really the longest military campaign of World War two. The Battle of Atlantic It was a six year fight. For control of the Atlantic. It's always overshadowed by everything that happened in the European and Pacific and because not glamorous, it's cold, gray, monotonous, miserable and it's the Navy and At the beginning of the movie, they play Winston Churchill. He coined the battle of the Atlantic in March 1941 in a speech and he says then the torpedoes full speed ahead, which I never knew It was a Winston. I didn't either, till a quote. But he famously claimed the only thing that ever really fight frightened him during World War two was wth E u Boat peril because the German Submarines. They called them wolf packs and the only way for America to get all their equipment and all the men across tanks the Atlantic to fight the war.
