"It would be the moral and psychological equivalent. So I just like to leave you with that. I just have to add one thing very briefly because Charlie is a friend of mine and we are allowed to disagree. We are a big tent. But strategy, which is my thing and has been for more than 20 years. Strategy is the art of the possible, the possible. And Charlie's right, we've got problems here, but as long as this nation is run by people that hate it, it will not be solved for two years. The border will be open for two years. Let me guarantee you, okay? It won't be 2 million before million next year. We can't fix this until a certain guy I worked for is back in The White House. And let me tell you, I will, I will predict right now. We're not supposed to do predictions. I will tell you exactly what happens with the war in Ukraine. If president Trump is back in The White House, Russia will stop bombing maternity clinics. It will just happen. They will stop. President Trump is the first president since 1917 since the Russian Revolution to say when he saw Russian troops in Syria, mucking around, he told mad dog Mattis kill them. Kill them. And we did. We killed more than 200 Russian mercenaries in Syria because they were destabilizing the region. Putin didn't even have a press conference about it. That's how afraid he is. So let me give you an analogy. With the border and Ukraine, you have a dispute with your neighbor about the wall that divides your two properties. He's not letting you fix it, and he's going to take you to the court. You're not allowed to fix the wall. If you see a stranger being mugged on the street outside and you've got a baseball bat, why would you not give the stranger being mugged a baseball bat to defend themselves, even if you can't fix the wall with your neighbor? That is exactly what we need to do. Not pallets of cash, ammunition. Ammunition, ammunition. Let them fight their 1776. Until DJT is back in the big house. Larry elder. When I was in college, one of my favorite subjects was international relations. And I realized that the toughest job in the world is that of being commander in chief. None of us knows what will happen with Ukraine. None of us knows what would have happened had we not given our aid. All the president can do is manage risks without having a crystal ball. It's a very difficult job. I know this. I don't believe we'd be having this conversation if Joe Biden had not pulled out of Afghanistan the way he did. I also know this. That when the Soviet Union fell and Sebastian, again, knows all about all of this, when the Soviet Union fell, Ukraine had nuclear weapons. The west pressured them into turning them over and promised that in the event that the Russians invaded, we would defend them. We have double crossed them. This is exactly what happened with Libya. After the war in Iraq, Gaddafi was scared bleep less, turned over his WMD, is now under lock and key in Tennessee, and we implied in the event that there was a threat to that country. We would assist them. Instead, what happened? Obama joined the French and the British and bombing Livia that would not have happened had they not turned over their nukes. So we have a promise that we've made to Ukraine to defend them in exchange for them having turned over their nuclear weapons. And we will be double crossing them if the west did not support them right now. Again, that is not mean we give a blank check that does not mean we do not try and make sure the money and the weaponry gets in the proper hands. But I believe that what happens in Ukraine will inform what will happen with China and Taiwan will inform what will happen with the ayatollahs in Iran and will inform what will happen with North Korea. I believe that they're all watching and the watching with the west in general and with the U.S. in particular will.

"Trying to overthrow the Iranian government completely false charges that the Harry had no merit. She was then sentenced to 5 years in prison over the spurious allegations. And then there was a somewhat cat and mouse game over the years where she was a cruel porn being released from prison, being put under house arrest being taken back to prison, there was then another charge brought when she was given an extra one year term in April 2021. So she is someone who has really been through it and doing that time. She's done things like go on hunger strike. She's been put in solitary confinement as well. And here throughout all of this Richard her husband, he was told initially by the foreign office to keep the case quiet, it was best to let the diplomats do their work. He didn't think that was the right thing to do. And he's fought throughout this time to keep her in the public to keep the pressure up on various foreign secretaries to try to get her home. Now, coupled with all of this is that obviously the geopolitics, multiple foreign secretaries have presided over this case. It has to be said that Boris Johnson, when he was foreign secretary, caused a bit of a mess with a slip of the tongue when there was a point when we thought that she was going to get brought home in describing her accidentally as being involved in spying or intelligence. And that then led to her being hauled back into court and being kept even longer. But from the Iranian side, what it seemed to be about is a debt that the UK hadn't paid. Now this was a debt that went back several decades and it was all to do with 400 million pound debt for chieftain tanks that had been a deal signed when the Shah of Iran was still in place and then when there was a revolution, the UK canceled the rest of the order. And so Iran has said that that money should be returned. And the negotiation seemingly has been through the years about getting that money back, but it is also about keeping the UK in check, keeping it negotiating and trying to use her and others that are detained like initial sorry, who is also, we believe you're about to come back. In bargaining tips so that there can be negotiations between the Iran and the west. So it seems now that that debt has been paid and that nazanin should hopefully be on her way, but the family in the last couple of hours have said, until she's on that plane and landing here in the UK, they won't believe it. Just finally Venus and how big of a victory is this now for prime minister Boris Johnson. Well, to be honest, I'm not sure how much of a victory Boris Johnson can claim in this because there was a period in 2018, 2017, 2018, as I mentioned, where we did actually think that nazanin was about to get home, but Boris Johnson's comments when he was foreign secretary, he actually says the time I've got the quote now in front of me when we look at what nasir is doing. She was simply teaching people journalism, as I found it at the very limit. Well, these remarks are the ones that sort of put her at risk because the Iranian regime conflated teaching journalism with spying and causing insurgency. She was absolutely not in Iran doing that. She was just on a family visit with her daughter, Gabriela. So I think there is still a lot of criticism of Boris Johnson for that period in November 2017 when he let those remarks slip. Sagari Radcliffe was brought back into court and December 2017 to face additional charges and to be questioned on this. So I don't think he'll be able to claim actually too much glory for this one. Thank you for joining us here on the briefing. Finally on today's program, it's been confirmed that an astronaut from the United States will now be returning to earth after fierce Russian lift home mice not materialized. It was thought that Mark van der hay might be left behind on the International Space Station because of height and tensions over Russia's innovation of Ukraine. Let's get the latest now with the space scientist and author doctor David White House Russia expert Steven DL is also in the studio with me, but David, if I come to you first, how ree was the worry that van der hay would not get and left back to earth. I think it was a question which had been raised but practically it was never going to be anything else. The space station has until now been able to override the politics back on the ground. There are signs that this might be changing, but I think that at the moment, the contracts that the United States has with the Russian space agency are holding the it was a Russian component of the space station which fired to boost its orbit and Saturday. There are various other commitments to the space station that seem to be going ahead, although I do understand that NASA has put together a Tiger team to investigate the possibility of how to decouple the Russian components from the International Space Station and what its future would be after that. So although, as I said, the space station has been immune from terrestrial politics for a long time. And we'll do so in the near future. It's long-term implications of yet to be decided. At the same time, David, I'm curious to hear what you thought about the threat by the head of Russia's space agency Dmitri rogozin, he said that Russia would crush the ISS onto the surface of the United States because of all the criticism brushes receiving. Because in has been, how can I put this diplomatically? He's been antagonistic. He's been irresponsible. He's been very inaccurate. And he is upset a great many people, and he's been making claims that are just fantastic and rather stupid. So it remains to be seen how NASA and the European space agency and Japan are part of the international consortium that run the space station are going to continue to work with the Russian space agency. When he made claims about bringing it down over the United States, somebody pointed out that actually the International Space Station flies over Russia more often than it does the United States. So it's a strange situation where you seem to have this rogue element shooting his mouth off, making claims that have practically no use to anybody. A David just finally to you one more question. I'm wondering what does the future look like when it comes to all that international collaboration taking place in space exploration? Apart from the space station, it's disastrous and has been seismic changes. The launch of western satellites from Russia has stopped the launch of the ExoMars Mars rover, which is due to go up from Russia later this year, can only happen once every two years. That's been stopped. There are various other scientific and commercial satellites which are now no longer going to work, space agencies are not working with Russia, scientists and universities of terminated employment and contracts were building. This apart from the space station and who knows what's going to happen to that in the future, there has been a seismic change in international cooperation with Russia on space. That's another example of how everyone is really losing in this war. Yes. David whitehouse, thank you very much for joining us today. Steve, and you have an anecdote actually. I know that you have met the head off Russia space agency to mitre rogozin, which talked about. I have, yes, some years ago when I was at the BBC, first of all, I interviewed him and found that actually he was rather charming. Now what I think has happened over the last not quite 20 years since I met him. And I met him again since probably the last time it was about 12 years ago..

White House: Russia Will Face Consequences if Navalny Dies in Prison
"National security advisor Jake Sullivan told CNN Russia will pay if Putin critic and main opposition leader Alexei Navalny dies in prison. We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr Navalny in their custody is their responsibility, and they will be held accountable by the international community in terms of the specific measures that we would would undertake. We're looking at Variety of different costs that we would impose. And I'm not going to telegraph that publicly at this point, but we have communicated that there will be consequences if Mr Navalny dies, so you've communicated that, But at the top there, President Biden apparently didn't mention Navalny in his call with Putin this week. He certainly didn't say anything about it publicly and his remarks on Thursday, and Russian state media is touting. This is proof that Biden has given up on the issue so Why isn't President Biden demanding Navalny's release? Or at least again, at least getting him a doctor at every single opportunity? Way actually have made the judgment that direct communication to the Russian government on this issue. Including both how we see it. How our allies and partners see it and what might unfold. Should something terrible happened to Mr Navalny? Should he looked terrible Things, of course have already happened to him, but should he pass away? We have judged that rather than just make general statements publicly, the best way to deal with this issue is privately on through diplomatic channels direct to the uppermost levels of the Russian government. Let me ask one specific question. Is the potential summit with Vladimir Putin on the table if Alexei Navalny passes away in prison. Not gonna get into hypotheticals in large part Danna because there isn't currently a summit on the books. It's something we're talking about, and that's some it would have to take place, of course in the right circumstances. In a way that could actually move the relationship forward, But I'm not gonna get into hypotheticals about when or whether the summit would likely occur.
