hello good afternoon it's 3 o'clock am in moscow and without international back turkey's landmark i guess if a museum which through its long history has also been a cathedral and a mosque has been converted back into a place for muslim prayer. change i mean like all of other mosques the doors of the hagia sophia will be open to all locals all foreigners muslims and muslims hagia sophia humanities common legacy will continue to embrace everyone with its new status in a more sincere and more unique way by finalizing preparations quickly we plan to open hagia sophia for worship on friday july the 24th 2020 with friday prayers. since worshipers have to wait then another 2 weeks they had to fit to reopen for press this friday to see them gathering outside we converted most presents shortly
8:02 am
after high court an elder 934 decision to turn it into a museum and continues to use it at a. turkey's council as they reached the decision to a no 1934 minister's council decision that turned high stop your mosque in the museum so this decision being i know that my so good museum has now been reverted back to a mosque now what will change with the idea so yes looking forward well the main thing that's going to change is. to be a will be open for islamic worship now there are many very important christian icons in mosaic so pressed goes inside islamic laws that worship did not take place in the presence of icons but turkish government is planning on using light mapping technology to provide an artificial barrier blocking these icons from the view of
8:03 am
worshippers during prayer hours so the mosque will still be open for tourism but also be open during prayer hours for worshipers that want to come here is what many turkish officials see the decision to turn. back into a mosque messick issue but there has been a lot of international criticism of the united states views a change in the stages of the hagia sophia as diminishing the legacy of this remarkable building and its own supposed to be the t. so rare in the modern world to serve humanity as a much needed bridge between those of differing faith traditions and culture you know this could deeply regrets the decision of the turkish will so it tastes made without prior discussion and calls for the universal thing more world heritage to be preserved the ruling by the turkish council of states to. overturn what a modern take decisions and present a wise decision to place the monument under the management of the religious affairs
8:04 am
presidency is regrettable the decision which came as a result of the political will of president other one is no comparable cation to a civil lawsuit is the unique value and ecumenical nature of the monument search presidential spokesman owns giving assurances that there is going to try to are to make sure that the religious identity and the historical significance of this beautiful minute it is preserved all of our major mosques such as the blue mosque for t.v. and silly money in mosques they are open to both visitors and washers. opening our paga sophia to worship doesn't keep local or foreign tourists from visiting the site so a loss from the world's heritage is not in question. is actually a very old structure dating back to the 6th century when the the emperor justinian . help construct this very important service the church for the record is not a. good empire and it's actually a very important symbol to the greek orthodox religion. consider what the vatican
8:05 am
is the roman catholics the i.s.o. the greek orthodox. wedding we're looking at the reactions coming domestic we regarding the decision to revert by sophia back into a mosque we see members of the ruling party very very happy we see tweets from the turkish president we've seen tweets from the finance minister the president's communications director as well expressing pleasure we've seen the opposition take a very wide stance many positive reactions coming out of the muslim world and they
8:06 am
are celebrating this decision that. is once again open prison or ship. when a former greek ambassador to tell us he believes that. tensions between. and screen belong to the initiative we're lying since it was. it was an initiative that was started about 10 or 15 years ago which aired as objective to stop the one clicks we can it be. i don't think it has been successful what it is a shame. and see who found it new should it be taking such a mission we are going to have pensions between. worlds and this is something that. i think we're going to. but the romeros mention in his
8:07 am
1st reaction. possibly be. a yes or becoming a mosque. meanwhile in berlin and change the perceived prices of the metro station it's the buses that. transport authorities proves to be controversial but have a look at this a bit like. my wild restrictions are being lifted in the u.k. this remain about potential 2nd wave of 19 and many say that a shortage of personal protective equipment might once again be an issue chatty added stache to reports. as a u.k.r. knocks the lock down it seems many are bracing for a 2nd wave of the corona virus but also a 2nd wave of a shortage of p p it's not new news the us throughout the entire pandemic and has stopped on the frontline really struggle to get hold of protective gear to adequately safeguard against the virus for months on and it seems like the look
8:08 am
down lessons haven't been learned over the department says it is committed to building the stocks to meet longer term demand we are not convinced that it is treating the market with sufficient urgency or that. the government is adamant that the stock of p.p. has never run out on a national level but with demand increased by 20000 percent those on the front line would beg to differ in fact 50 percent of and it starts so there was not enough p.p. and although day to run its usage is hard to get hold of a survey of nurses and carers found that nearly 90 percent worried about catching the virus at work while the government stresses that the main challenge it faced was getting the right people to the right place at the right time initially out of date masks were issued and then the statement was made that actually we have tested . and these masks are ok having said that they now say we need to improve this mask so there's
8:09 am
a lot of loss of freight and you need to answer this rather than to say the market has now been resolved with demand spiralling the u.k. had to look further afield and source people on international markets but that came with its own set of problems a plane from turkey landed at the peak of the pandemic in april carrying a batch of 400000 much needed p.p. counts upon arrival it emerged at the equipment didn't meet british safety standards in a very embarrassing blunder for the government so the u.k. is able to produce a fair share of its own people there's no imminent guarantee that it won't need to source from abroad again with experts in the field saying that the quality is the key component of effectiveness in print. the virus perhaps the government should try before you buy. do you know what the shortage is by revising the accounting tactics why not double the numbers instead of counting each pair of gloves as one why not count each club individually and hey presto you've doubled your stock without even lifting
8:10 am
a finger this catalogue of errors certainly were surely to get it right the 2nd time around if there's a 2nd time around that is but in line with most of the government's coronavirus responses they say it's too soon i didn't consider the moment. if. it's a good use of official talk earlier this week the chancellor announced a 15000000000 pounds boost to p p but will it be a case of too little too late especially as some of those in government say we're only halfway through this pandemic sharjah added. but apart from the impact on health and leaving millions the coronavirus is also threatening to leave people hungry because a new report by oxfam does warn that cope with triggering a food crisis that could potentially double the number who die from hunger each year. is the head of the humanitarian policy for oxfam international and he says it's even affecting well developed countries. what's really worrying us reports is
8:11 am
we're seeing new essentials of hunger developing in an otherwise middle income in developed countries some of the countries we do look at the reports include india south africa brazil these countries where there recently developed economies and yeah impact that we're seeing from corona virus is going to have dire consequences on the most vulnerable people in those societies and say it's going to happen i mean there's this poor people in every country and the same impacts are going to slow down so what we're seeing from coronavirus is that both it makes it's more vulnerable for poor people but it also makes them more vulnerable to the economic side as well and that's going to be across the world 8 of the biggest food and drink manufacturers have paid after their $18000000000.00 to their shareholders now looking back to what we were speaking about humanitarian aid the global humanitarian appeal is just over $7000000000.00 so clearly there's something wrong and the money is flowing to the big companies and it's really not getting down to the people that need it the world food programme does estimate that the number
8:12 am
suffering from crisis level hunger will double by the end of the year reaching 270000000 people in oxfam says to that 12000 today could actually die from starvation if nothing is done the worst hit are countries already deemed unstable before the pandemic nations such as yemen or afghanistan where many citizens had already been suffering from hunger for years we'll see the numbers at risk rice and some middle income and developed countries is to be said such as brazil and india are also on the danger list matthew truscott again insists though that there are measures to minimize coverts effect on hunger but governments do need to act fast. for the time being there are 3 things we need to do so firstly we urgently need to increase humanitarian aid and i'm at the moment the united nations has put out an appeal for about 7000000000 dollars and that's only been 24 percent funded so we're not getting nearly enough money for the humanitarian aid that we need at the 2nd
8:13 am
thing that we can do is looking into issues like canceling debt if we cancel 'd the debt of of some developing countries we estimate that could free up up to a trillion dollars for those countries to be using to help those people and that can pay for things like food they can pay for social security social protection it can pay for things like health so sharing up the debt could make a huge difference and that's just a matter of wealthy nations really giving up some of the debt owed to them by other countries and the 3rd thing that we need to do and in and this is a long term change is we need to change our food system works we need to build a more fair more robust a more equal food system food system that's a bit that able to deal with climate change that's able to respond to shocks that's able to be sustainable and to support that the small scale farmers and small producers rather than just putting money into big companies if the 2nd wave does come we know the people who are going to be the most trouble for that and if there are restrictions put in place by governments to take that to address that 2nd wave those restrictions have to be have to be able to cater to the needs of the poorest people so we need to make sure that the food systems are there to get food where
8:14 am
it's needed to make sure that people have the resources to buy that shoot. now the u.k. government is allowing british citizens to travel to 59 countries without having to quarantine upon their return it does come as life has been slowly returning to normal in the u.k. in the past few weeks with many bars restaurants and public spaces gradually reopening. as of this weekend artists musicians and dancers can stop performing live outside to outdoor audiences will also have the resumption of recreational sport followed later by the reopening about gyms swimming pools and leisure centers however despite this positive attitude towards easing coronavirus measures and or to reopening the borders the u.k. does have one of the highest death rates in the world followed by spain italy the us and also france and while its government announcement will allow british
8:15 am
tourists to visit many european countries it does seem that they might not get the warmest of welcome us and that is because a recent poll does reveal many europeans are not thrilled at the prospect of taking in british travellers with the self isolating the people we spoke to had mixed feelings. or your brains are being broken or it is in our nature to welcome people and they would also give us a big hand the economic lee in my opinion alter is has come to italy will be well received. i think they will be regarded somewhat with suspicion. first of all we need to make sure that they do not have the virus that they have had the tests until ok and then then they have the right to enjoy themselves here i think it's better if they put border stays at home not just the british right now everybody should stay home i think that's the most reasonable course. they need to be checked but i don't see any reason to stop them from coming they're still part of europe
8:16 am
for now. long as they respect social distancing on the wording of most it favors the development of tourism. still ahead this hour not a donald trump meets the prison sentence for his former advisor gorgeous guy he was convicted of lying to congress cheering the russian collusion probably will have a look at this just off the press. odd no team no crowd. no shots no. actual news ltd. going to drive. the 1st. points your thirst for action.
8:17 am
young people for a while you know it's up to them to make it in their own image and out the money else in genesee i'm a boomer you know i already had the. 40 or 50 year experience in the united states post world war 2 coast landing you know stock markets never had a work day in my life because of that and you know so it's up to them to decide what's great to make a crane and good luck with that. fellow again i don't know trump is. basing a backlash after granting clemency to his former aide roger stone it does come
8:18 am
hours after the appeals court refused to delay the start of stone's 40 month sentence which he was given for lying to congress cheering the russia collusion probe color boppin reports. the decision from the white house comes just 4 days before roger stone was expected to present himself at a federal prison and start serving his sentence of 40 months in prison after being convicted of obstruction of justice now the white house presented a lengthy report describing roger stone as essentially a political operative who briefly worked with the trump campaign in 2016 and became a victim of the russian collusion hoax the white house and question the partiality of the decision and sentence which roger stone faced mr stone was judged by the same prosecutors from the miller investigation toast with finding evidence of collusion with russia because no such evidence exists however they could not charge
8:19 am
him for any conclusion related crime instead they charged him for his conduct during their investigation the simple fact is that if the special counsel had not been pursuing an absolutely baseless investigation mr stone would not be facing time in prison now according to the white house report bob muller's prosecutors charged roger stone simply with process crimes that were quote soley from their own improper investigation and the white house went on to say that the prosecutors quote took pains to make a public and shameful spectacle of his arrest they tipped off c.n.n. allowing his arrest to be filmed on live television now at this point we've got democrats speaking up and saying that donald trump is essentially abusing the rule of law and legal processes in the united states essentially for the president saying if you lie for me you cover up for me i will reward you on the other hand if you are a rat you cooperate then like
8:20 am
a mafia boss i will come after you richard nixon at the height of watergate never pardoned or commuted the sentences of any of the people involved in watergate i have no doubt does. donald trump is going to pardon himself he is going to pardon evolved a trump he is going to pardon jared questionnaire the charges on which roger stone was convicted flowed from the special counsel robert muller investigation into allegations that trump colluded with russia during the 2016 elections now no evidence of trump russia collusion was ever discovered but a number of individuals associated with the trump campaign which charged with process crimes as well as unrelated charges now roger stone admitted that during the 2016 elections he did indeed promote the wiki leaks emails emails that were provided to wiki leaks from clinton campaign manager john podesta however he says he had no prior knowledge of any e-mails that we do it was going to publish and he
8:21 am
certainly was not involved in any hacking or data dumping or anything to that effect. ok let's get some reaction now from journalist and author daniel is ari daniel. what's your view hey do you support donald trump's move or do you agree with his critics who say look he's just obviously protecting a friend. well actually i agree with both i mean i think i think that trump as right the the the the roger stone prosecution arose out of the russia gate hysteria that consume the 1st 2 and a half years of his administration and virtually brought the white house to a standstill. by also a grave adam shift that trump is rewarding 'd stone for keeping silent. and doing his best to impede the investigation such as it was so i'm so they're they're both sides in the sense are correct but the important thing i
8:22 am
think is that the is that they washington is moving to an ever more. open conflict between the presidency and the congress and they the basic mechanisms of government are breaking down there is some kind of incipient civil war underway and no one knows what'll happen during the november elections where liberal elections will will go off. in the usual way or whether they'll be a breakdown or some kind of challenge to their legitimacy etc so the constitutional machinery is breaking down dramatically and this is just the latest sign of that deepening crisis should you think this will have much of an impact on the election as you suggesting this is just part of the a much greater trend that we're seeing not just expect more of this kind of thing.
8:23 am
well i think the i think has thrown down the gauntlet and the public realizes that so the division is stark as it possibly can be and voters are urged to to no to take one side or the other with no possibility of compromise and between. and and trump is playing a very desperate game a dangerous game he's on the ropes his handling of the copa 19 crisis is beyond disastrous but then again he is using every weapon that he has to. to mobilize his supporters will see what happens and we'll see whether the entire constitutional machinery breaks down under the proud of the pressure of this growing cleavage look daniel we're going to leave it there we've been at the time but nice to see that was done without a journalist and author thanks thank you. i will most 2 months
8:24 am
after the rise of the black lives mass movement sparked by the killing of george floyd in the united states the impact is still being felt around the globe because in the german capital moves are underway to rename a metro station which is now said to be racist but an alternative suggestion by transport authorities is proving to be controversial to please all of us explains. the killing of george floyd by us police and the rise of the black light amounts of movement around the world led to a reckoning from monuments to racism colonialism and slavery.

is also wrangling with the names of it strasser plots an alleyway here in the very heart of the german capital is more in strasser more or more in english is seen as a derogatory term for people from north africa while berlin city authorities say it may take a while to change the street name the capitals probably transport provider want to change the underground stations name quick sharp new transport maps are going to be issued by the end of this year out of understanding and respect for the occasional controversial debate about the street name the d.v.d. has now decided not to use it any longer as the name of the underground station the problem is that the name that they going to replace it with is going to strasser which runs nearby the station now this is where things start to get complicated the russian born 19th century composer. is regarded as one of the greats of classical
8:26 am
music he spent his final days in berlin and as with a street named after him in the german capital the issues arise when you look at the motifs that appear in his work through modernize the opera prince comiskey employees deeply anti semitic things the group is anti semitic even if anti semitism was prevalent and widely accepted at the time. i don't necessarily think we should get rid of the names of streets all station named after people like but renaming a station after him nowadays in berlin is quite a different matter there are all those who oppose the view of lincoln as an anti semite and say his work on beliefs being misrepresented blaming going for anti-semitism is a bit of stretch really you have to understand the context you have to understand history whereas glencoe was not interested in it he had jewish friends and kept in touch with many famous artists of jewish origins for him it's nice that it was not important this isn't the only part of the lynwood names are an issue in the vetting
8:27 am
district there is enough for a kid quarter where peter. and plots are named after the germans who for the colonialism the city did say that some streets would be renamed in $28.00 but they are still here in stiglitz doff they didn't didn't. named after the victor in the battle of town and good world war one who later went on to be a figurehead for a really nazis and appointed hitler as chancellor. who also has a square named after him a city with a colossus of neoclassical and neo gothic architecture he designed the brandenburg gate but also the eigen cross the award now so closely associated with germany's period of nazi rule politicians from the green party have welcomed them to rename

8:29 am
a monkey bit of food it compares itself to others and it seems that it's weaker then it doesn't reach for the banana because it's afraid of getting it sees that it's stronger sir tone is released and it goes for it and it feels good so we build patterns when we're young of comparing ourselves to others and making decisions about when we feel one hour and when we feel one down and it's easy to feel one down all the time if you're in need to think that way and then you end up with these orders all the time and that's the root of depression.
8:30 am
