Mark your calendar! US media reschedules 'Russian invasion'

February 20 is the new date that US and UK media outlets say we should expect Russia to to invade neighboring Ukraine. Despite Russia's demobilization at its border, the hype continues, as journalists eagerly amplify US State Department warning of war. RT America's Alex Mihailovich reports. Then Tyrel Ventura of "Watching the Hawks" shares his insights.

RT America's John Huddy reports on the Canadian government's use of the Emergencies Act to crack down on the "Freedom Convoy" movement. Then Sputnik Radio's Austin Pelli, eyewitness to the "Freedom Convoy" protests that have rocked Canada and inspired both sympathy and disdain from France to New Zealand, joins from Ottawa to share what he's seen.

Plus, RT's Shadia Edwards reports on a UK school's "inclusive" gender identity policy resulting in their labeling a six-year-old child confused by his self-declared transgender classmate as a "transphobic risk."

And finally, the San Francisco Police Department is accused of using DNA collected from rape kits to link sexual assault victims to completely unrelated crimes. City officials, including District Attorney Chesa Boudin, are denouncing the practice as unconstitutional and likely to discourage victims of sexual assault and rape reluctant to report crimes or seek justice. RT America's Paxton Boyd reports.
