8:01 am
a very warm welcome to the program on this friday afternoon it's 3 pm here in the russian capital let's get started with your live news update. russian scientists are poised to register the world's 1st a back against kobe at 19 according to the country's health ministry that could happen as early as next week trials have been ongoing since june here in moscow 2 groups of volunteers taking part are to think aaron has more on the development. what we've all been adjusting to living this new normal coronavirus the experts and scientists around the world have been frantically trying to come up with a vaccine in fact the pandemic is seen unprecedented mobilization of funding and research just in a race to come up with the vaccine that could save millions and billions of people around the world so this been called the race for a vaccine and now it looks like the russian rite of crossed the finish line in 1st place take a listen it will pass the registration process however there now needs to be
8:02 am
a final stage of trials which is very important we need to be sure that the barracks and the safe now if all goes to plan the health ministry added that the 1st to be vaccinated would be health care workers and the elderly this would all be free of charge and could be as soon as this month but a lot of people have expressed trepidation for money's about being amongst the 1st people to be vaccinated or even at all at least this year but we did get a chance to speak to some of the volunteers taken part in the trials so that it's a. much i'll move when i 1st we were in isolation at a health resort for 2 weeks that was the preparation period then we were brought here for 20 days i work in public catering so i'm always around people when this started i realized how many people who feeling sick so i decided to help there was nothing special just a vaccination it isn't scary it's like a fever reducing injection so much as. i feel good there were no problems i'm a doctor and i work with people and now i don't have to worry about the necessity
8:03 am
of protection i can work breathe freely not think about the risks and dedicate myself to the patients all being well and does. production of the vaccine is set for september that will be followed by a mass production in october but this big announcement comes just days after the w.h.o. russia to make sure it was following international guidelines to produce a safe and effective vaccine this also comes as some scientists around the world to have criticized the speed with which russia has come up with this potential vaccine saying it sounds a lot like a propaganda victory now the race for a vaccine has unsurprisingly brought up this competitive edge in countries around the world everybody wants to be the 1st to come up with a workable vaccine and this with clearly illustrated when last month there were reports that russia had used hackers to. to attack oxford university scientists who were working on a potential vaccine that this completely was unfounded because it turns out that it
8:04 am
was a russian company actually working with oxford university scientists to mass produce this potential vaccine so i think it's fair to say we can expect a lot more criticism and scaremongering the coming days and weeks dr mohamed merah your viral just at lancaster university says the announcement that the russians are ready to register their backs you should be welcomed. i think we are living in a very strange on president a situation i think we should not expect that any vaccine would be 100 percent effective and basically none of the vaccine is a 100 percent effective the most effective vaccine we have is measles vaccine which out 80 to 90 percent production so therefore with a coronavirus is particularly by the nature of the ground about it says there is no any scientific backing that it would provide and it was an action when we hear good news like russian vaccine i don't really don't want any of the scientific capabilities of the russian scientists there are certain concerns i think me myself
8:05 am
as a research of the media concerned is that i haven't seen any would you know data what date based on which i can be able to make my own conclusion on on to the efficacy and on to the nature of the clinical trial been set up but otherwise that is we're we are living and certainly anything that come up helpful would be considered really positive. search and rescue operations are in full swing and beirut where the death toll is expected to rise following tuesday's blast in the capital support officials say the explosion killed at least 157 people and injured 5000 more meanwhile french president emanuel micron is in lebanon where he's held talks with top officials and called for an international investigation into the causes of the explosion some are questioning the french leaders real motives and charlotte devinsky reports. all to war coverage in 10 nationally of macaroons visit to beirut

8:07 am
a new political initiative to change. what you did well as he waded through those massive crowds there was a particularly poignant moment when he hugged a woman and he said to her i can feel your pain but that moment also led some to question what his real motives were for being in beirut some opposition politicians who folks have been scathing about that visit describing it as a one man arab show and others suggesting he's treating lebanon as if it's still a french colony france support for the lebanese people in this strategy is indisputable or the other hand the arrogant and moralizing one man show in which a man who has performed today in beirut is in dissent barely arrived in lebanon macron takes himself or the president of the lebanese republic he preaches and claims all by himself to organize european and international corporation the
8:08 am
immense misfortune of some reveals the great vanity of others now president mccone for his point of view said he would never deigned to interfere in lebanese politics but almost in the same breath he said that he would be talking to political leaders in lebanon and he would be holding can't he also said that this visit he'd have a geo political angle. because if it wasn't fronts it was that it would be turkey iran or saudi arabia and according to him very interests would be to the detriment of the lebanese people but now that visit by president macaroni is being welcomed the aid that he's promised is being welcomed but the reality is when he turned back a to france he's fighting many battles here with his popular mandate in front the reality is it will means to be see whether those promises will be true

8:17 am
of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. welcome back to the program the u.s. state department has issued a new report and which accuses russia of waging a dis information and propaganda campaign employing a variety of methods among these is the use of kremlin controlled news outlets to push moscow's messages are to sofitel or takes a closer look. 3 months until the election a virus cool seeing up through the country an ailing economy and a future without tech talk america's got its hands full but it will still always find the time on the cash to do a deep dive into russian descent information. the kremlin bears direct responsibility for cultivating these tactics and platforms as part of its approach
8:18 am
to using information as a weapon it invests massively in its propaganda channels its intelligence services and its proxies to conduct malicious site brick to vittie to support the dissent from ation efforts and it leaves reaches outlets that masquerade as new sites research institutions to spread these false and misleading narratives a new report by the state department has zeroed in on russia's complex network of fake news and propaganda and basically it tuns out like some kind of new to latent octopus there are 5 pillars to russia's this information ecosystem from the government itself to social media but the one that gets the most attention are news sites which apparently all really busy peddling conspiracy theories but you would never suspect them of being nefarious 20300000 monthly views a wide range of political topics on a fairly quiet twitter account but no it turns out it's all. the kremlin in
8:19 am
disguise. we found that they promote this information in support of the kremlin's goals they're often promoted directly. by the russian government and the push specific disinformation narratives that were picked up by other parts of the ecosystem how intriguing some might say tell me more others would cry well the state department might say there's no hesitance all direct ties with moscow but here's an unrelated example of an alternative news story to stop you from asking questions the head of global research has written many articles on coded 19 containing dissin for me shewn one of them that was published back in march the headline of this is covered 19 coronavirus if a pandemic who's behind it global economic social and political destabilisation so from that have line calling it a fig pandemic i think we all recognize it's not a fait pandemic it's real you know now that i think about it under the public pulse

8:22 am
celebrated its independence day on thursday at the country was gripped by protests or delayed elections the vote has been put off twice already due to the penned the interim president janine and years has previously stressed the health risks of holding a vote but now she accuses the bolivian election bobbie playing with dates she took to twitter to point out that she has nothing to do with the latest decision adding though that she will respect it at the same time the government has denounced the ongoing protests it says they pose a danger to public health and safety and accuses former leader of a moralist of inciting them teleporter picks up the story. when it comes to combating potential election fraud donald trump seems to have a solution suspend the elections altogether and while that's caused quite a fuss in the united states the pro-u.s. interim government in bolivia has successfully used that strategy twice just see for yourself how the opposition feels about it. and

yet know. the people are demonstrating taking to the streets and calling for elections now because we are seeing the inability of the self-appointed president who is bankrupting the country when it comes. and it's every young people of coolness to go on a hunger strike until the government calls elections we no longer want to wait we want to actions now the court cited the covert $900.00 pandemic as the reason for the delay now while there are rising infections in the country it's nowhere near to the same level as bolivia's hard hit neighbors like brazil chile and peru and the postponement has really struck a nerve with the public who have been in political limbo since the last election. they stumble to leave the museum. and.
8:24 am
it was the 1st step towards free and fair elections as prescribed by washington. all countries deserve free fair transparent and credible elections the oas official report on bolivia makes it clear that bolivians were not given this chance stop the violence hold elections and work with janine annas and the transitional government to bring democracy back so the new president janine 9 years had one job to hold a new vote. it's merely a transitional period we will call for elections with honor of the people they will carry out an electoral process that reflects the will and sentiment of all bolivians the interim government was supposed to hold new elections 90 days after taking power instead on us has been president now for almost a year with no signs of returning to the ballot box she also said she wouldn't run for president in the next election but since her an egg on that and her reputation as bolivia's caretaker has been far from spotless.
