12:03 am
but i thank the whole world for its tremendous support of the mariel po garrison. our soldiers deserve and of the situation is extremely difficult, right? but we carry out the orders to keep defending, but despite everything within a gust, most of the ground fighting is taking place in eastern ukraine, which moscow has made a key target in its war. on tuesday 21 civilians were killed in donnette screech in one of the deadliest days there. so far, char stratford is with ukrainian troops in the east and set his report. black smoke rises from russian all control territory. we drive at high speed along what ukrainian soldiers cool the road of life towards the front line, which a war through the forests to the trenches. the sound of artillery punches through the air, washing falls is trying to evolve from the left and right flanks, but morale among the soldiers is high yard in the little leaf. when the war
12:04 am
started, i had a huge adrenalin rush and a search in anger. now, more anger of what the washington up in lucia, maria, pull. what they continue to do, and many other places will never be brothers. liskey scars from mortar tillery strikes. russian forces frequently target disposition that shelling that you can hear is coming over our heads from russian positions and hidden ukrainian positions around about 2 or 3 kilometers from here. this is what heavy artillery sounds like when it's fired over your head. that was just the show bloss through the crunch, just a hit explode. the soldiers of use british made anti tank missiles called in law's part of a multi $1000000000.00 military,
12:05 am
a package from ukraine's western partners. and there's an addition, but that unless we're grateful to western countries, helping us with weapons, because russia has much more than us, we can't hold them back without their help from afford observation points. soldiers tell us, russian forces are behind the wall. only a few 100 meters away and they are facing high tech weapons from above. those for my team could either get a reset or the jones help their artillery to hit oppositions. there are also weaponized version is that far, $3.00 to $4.00 times a day. they are difficult to shoot because they fly so high. my alina worked as a veterinarian before she signed up to fight the so many other then when the thing you see book, i have a child, she's 10 years old. i want her to have a peaceful sky over her head. that's why i'm here. i consciously decided to join and defend my country. boxes of explosives and ammunition,
12:06 am
the constant threat from above, the russian army trying to push forward under a blackening sky. charles stratford 0 eastern new grade. european union wants its 27 members to ban russian oil imports as part of its latest sanctions for the war and ukraine. the block is proposing to do it in stages to give government time to find alternative supplies. the e u is heavily dependent on russian energy, particularly when it comes to natural gas with 40 percent of its supplies from russia. that's why there are no plans to pose a blanket ban on gas for now. the russia also applies more than a quarter of the blocks crude oil, which the use aimed to banned by the end of the year. russia's biggest, you customer germany, had already said it was to be fully independent of russian oil. it reduced those imports to 12 percent and it remains a big consumer of russian gas and facing out supplies will be harder for countries like hungry,
12:07 am
which relies heavily on rushing gas and oil in austria and so vacuum also take large volumes of russian gas. don't cain reports from ballad? this is the gas from yes installation in hunting mencius from installations like these in siberia and across russia, crude oil, diesel and petrol. a pumped to customers, take them together every day. nearly 8000000 barrels of crude and refined products are exported. 2 thirds of them end up in europe. but now russia's war against ukraine has changed everything to day. we are addressing our dependency on russian oil. and let's be clear. it will not be easy because some member states are strongly dependent on rational oil, but we simply have to do it. so today we will propose to ban all russian oil from europe. this will be
12:08 am
this will be a complete import. bannon, all watching will seaborne and pipeline crude and refined. but in order for this to happen, it will need the support of all e u member states, and some a strongly resistant to all act embargoes by sally bad. give it. russell's anxious package would destroy the security of hunger energy. supply modulus like risk packaged in this form cannot response will be supported. as on one knee journeyed, the sanctions proposed in strasburg will also target several large russian banks and other financial institutions. the notable absentee from the list is russian natural gas. in a sense, it's the elephant to the european living room. too big to be ignored, but also too big, unilaterally to be done away with, without seriously damaging economies across this continent. bottom line, as you will probably not be able to replace rocky gas any time soon. we're talking about a $150000000.00 billing cubic meters of gas that russia says west that's coming
12:09 am
down at the moment. but we're still gonna face a shortage of, of quite a few bcm out there. the russian government condemned proposed in bog and said sanctions or a double edged weapon, which will also hurt europeans economic. and that's the problem facing e u leaders. they want to act fast against russia, but they're stuck with the reality of decisions that governments across europe made over decades when they thought that it was in their best interests to make deals with president putin. dominic cane al jazeera berlin, andre antique officer russian and political analyst. he thinks moscow can find other buyers outside europe. there could be any responses to the decision made by the u. e. u. on the outside the must go. ready will of course, find some other countries that are ready to import the rational oil. it just said that in days raise the chinese, right? yeah. the countries ready?
12:10 am
so i think what the european countries are doing, the shooting themselves, the leg because russian has provided around 30 percent of crude oil to the european countries. and i think i don't imagine nowhere or at what price. busy those countries would get oil from, from what countries may be the united states would provide the european countries with crude oil. but again, what will be the price. so no one can make these countries this person to buy. so russia will, just, as i mentioned. ready briefly we'll just try to find the other countries to import the oil i used to in days ready to buy. ready russian oil changes ready to buy. ready russian oil other countries are. ready by the russian oil asian country. so basically, so this is the decision made by
12:11 am
a european union. so we, you, of course, where we are, we look at this decision, but we also will take measures will take steps to prevent the economical effect to negative effect on the russian economy or hassle. so, russia's may, the 9th victory day parade has begun in moscow. the annual world war 2 commemoration has special significance this year because of the war and ukraine. fighter jets practice flying in these ed formations, used as a symbol of support for russian forces. a criminal dismiss room is that at times to declare war formerly on victory day coming up, what are they? are this news out of promising to ramp up its weapons program? north korea conducts its 14th missile tests this year with an island poise horn. historic political shift hotel is ready to install. a nationalist government for out is on the march 1st fixed title grid.
12:12 am
ah, the united states is raising its base interest rate by half a percentage point to try to reduce soaring inflation. the chair of the federal reserve, jerome pow, may denouncement. in the last hour, we have both the tools we need and the resolve that it will take to restore price stability. on behalf of american families and businesses, the economy in the country have been through a lot over the past 2 years and approved resilient. it is essential that we bring inflation down if we are to have a sustained period of strong labor market conditions that benefit all against this backdrop. today, the f o m c raised its policy interest rate by a half percentage point in anticipates that ongoing increases in target rate for the federal funds rate will be appropriate. she returns is my 1st in washington
12:13 am
champ, what effect will this have? so the psychological effects but, but practically, when we're talking about inflation, it's difficult to see what the federal reserve can actually do because the reasons behind inflation are so specific, the war and ukraine that you were just discussing. supply chain issues the pandemic . the chinese lock down the slack of affordable housing and corporate price gouging that we're seeing in, in, in energy sectors, food sectors, pharmaceutical sectors. these are all the reasons why inflation are so high, and these interest rate hikes aren't going to do much about those specific specific issues. but what this does signal is, even though this was the largest rate increase since 2000, it does show that there is a sense of moderation and the fed. and even though the mean are more half point basis points, you know, mike, my raises might be coming to because it means they're not listening to those on the right of the political spectrum and economics and colleagues who always want to start curbing inflation through high interest rates no matter the,
12:14 am
the economic and social cost, because this is a very blunt instrument. what we're talking about here is raising interest rates to make people's lives harder. so the don't spend more. so that means meaning that you're making more people unemployed, making people make it more difficult for you to borrow, making the job scarcity more important. because corporations and companies can't, can't get get the loans to, to, to hire more people. this could have devastating impacts on socially and internationally because when the u. s. central bank raises its rates for vegetables, central banks and other countries tend to right raise their rates and actually to enormous poverty in the developing world to he's not listening to those on the extreme inflation hawk side of things. they're saying like that, that am in a we're going to keep an eye on things, but we are taking it seriously at least. so that's actually good news, i think on the market. very happy about this. you know, ordinarily you'd expect the markets, the tank of isn't for interest rate hike, but that isn't the case. and progressive economists you say, all right, let's do that though. there's a good chance and we had this of the i'm a spring meetings just a few weeks ago that inflation may already have picked or may certainly peak by
12:15 am
next year. so we shouldn't do anything too crazy. because as we know from previous incidents where the federal reserve tries to tinker with the interest rate to curb inflation, it's often is not always, i think that's a global recession. so they have to be really careful. and lisa, that sense of moderation and what you're out, your empower saying, and, and what president biden have to say that they stated economy earlier? well this is a bit curious to because of the time when americans in the polls are saying, you know, they're having trouble making ends meet and they, they feel they're very pessimistic about the economy. he chose to talk about the budget deficit. it was like a straight out the, the 19 eighties and you know, that sort of right rings and to right wing clintonian sort of democratic party where it was all about budget deficits. therefore, shrinking social spending at which is actually kind of the opposite of biden came into office talking about when he came into office was all that spending money on increasing the social safety net spending money on infrastructure spending money on climate change, i mean a middle eas, could utterly failed in congress to actually get any was done. but he's talking
12:16 am
about budget deficits, which is actually something that would really appeal again to the right wing to, to budget deficit hawks, which is simply not something that americans are talking about. and actually when you look closely why the budget deficit is being reduced, it's not because he's increased taxation on on the very wealthy. i remember a trillion dollars of that deficit was from donald trump's tax cuts for the very wealthy. it's because they withdrawing a lot of the social spending that was put in place during the pandemic to help people, whether the pandemic, this isn't terribly progressive at all. so it was very curious and we'll have to see whether this kind of language continues into the election, where he just gone back into the straight clintonian right wing democratic playbook, to appeal to right wing folks and not necessarily the brig progressive base. shabba kennedy. thank you very much more people than ever before struggling to put food on the table with extreme weather violence and the pandemic to blame. so according to the un, which warns the global food process is set to reach appalling new levels because of
12:17 am
the war and ukraine. according to the u. s. 193000000 people in 53 countries, didn't have enough to eat last year. that 40000000 more from the year before. if you, if you met a gasket, south you done, and yemen are among the worst affected by more than half a 1000000 people are facing catastrophic conditions, including starvation and death. around 26000000 children under the age of 5, a malnourished and in need of urgent treatment. while food programs, rebecca richard says root causes of severe hunger and famine need to be addressed. these, most of these numbers is, as we've seen, also one of africa are in quite a small group of countries. and if we look at the causes, they're really around the combination of climate change, especially with the drought in one. but also conflict will say the economic repercussions prove it, and i have to say the ukraine crisis is going to make a rule, operate local food system, much,
12:18 am
much more fragile. we already see higher number of the cost of food. and so many of our countries, price hikes, the cost of oil, all of these effects accounts for supply chain and the ability to distribute food, to where it's mass need it. we need to also tackle what we're calling the root cause. it's why we there in the 1st place, the drought, they're requiring they're carrying the shooter time frame, but we know they're coming. we have the technology to know that we can predict them . we see it ahead of time. so what is the preemptive action is needed to really change these numbers. what are the solutions needed? so that needs to be, tackle is a longer time frame. as one of the short, an immediate response is needed to save lives. we also need to be looking at resilience of populations and, and their longer term resistance to these shops. we need to come together as a global community. so that coordination and ability to plan together and to look long term is absolutely essential. the horn of africa suffering its worst drought
12:19 am
and decades. the un says millions are at risk of starvation, and entire communities are being displaced into monahan as well. this used to be fertile, grazing land. now it just drives a bone. life is growing increasingly difficult for these nomadic herders in eastern ethiopia and others like them across the horn of africa region, many feel powerless as they watch their livelihoods disappear beneath the sand. welcome had there is not a single animal left for us. hardy welcome. conditions are really hard and this drought is much different from previous ones. we've never suffered like this. the regions worse drone decade has killed nearly 1500000 animals from the herds. people here say it's part of a new pattern of weather that's threatening their way of life. the puzzle is, you know, as soon as they know they're trying to recover from the other drug and the progress of the hits but, but, but it's a controlled. so it's miss, you know,
12:20 am
make them possible for them to recover quickly from the previous previous in shocks. 20000000 people are on the brink of starvation. many have been displaced and forced to settle in camps. aid workers do what they can to feed the hungry. but sometimes that's not enough. we come up with some of the mothers who because of they are not fed getting any food. they had no police. and if in a food for children or in a feed, feeding for children, scientists are linking the crisis to climate change. drugs like this used to happen once every 6 years. now there every 3 rights groups are calling for urgent action. but for the nomadic herders of east africa, it may come too late to preserve their way of life. than to monahan al jazeera, any 30 people died in a gun battle between african union peacekeepers and the above group in somalia. 10

of march to an icbm. that's an intercontinental ballistic missile, a sort of weapon capable of reaching the continental united states and the kind of weapon that north korea has not tested since 2017. so that was seen as a major development to major escalation. now there's some debate over whether that miss out was fired was a, was all 15 or a more powerful, more recent class song, 17 icbm. but both of those types of missiles were on display at this very large parade that was held last week in pyongyang. this was the anniversary of the founding of north korea as military when also on display where other weaponry that the north koreans have been developing very actively in recent years, such as submarine loads, ballistic missiles and hypersonic missiles, attended by kim jungle and the north korean leader. vowing to speed up the development of his nuclear arsenal. still to come on out there, this news at a summit of the americas without 3 american nations. speak exclusively to cuba as

12:29 am
not to part across central parts. we can see this little light of showers central airs if you and i think that's gonna be the dominant feature as we go on through the next day or so. so some big showers coming in to southern parts of france around switzerland, easing over towards austria. and poland ahead of us where we seem, wet weather, pulling away from that western side of russia. brightest guys, come back in behind ukraine, looking to keep it around 14 celsius in the sunshine. 17 celsius here by friday, would see that when we're still looking around central parts, the showers continuing and centralized of the mediterranean. now seeing some of that wet weather setting in as we go on towards the weekend. but from march of spain and portugal, as you can see, the sun's out and it's warming up nicely at long last, but to dry and sunny across northern parts of algeria, we still have some showers in play here, cooler as well. meanwhile, seasonal rates for west africa, ah,

12:33 am
to 4, doesn't pro abortion rights activists here, champion in front of the supreme court. earlier in the day we saw a much smaller group of anti abortion rights activists. they came and they sort of started shouting at each other. we saw police quickly move in and i want to point out security here is incredibly tight. this street behind me used to be accessible for cars, but now on both sides of the dump truck blocking the road. because this is going to continue to be a controversial issue in till the decision comes out. remember this draft, this leach draft that they've confirmed is in fact just a draft justices are allowed to and often do change their minds between a draft and the final decision. so expect to see protest this one is much smaller than yesterday. pretty much leading up to the final decision which we expected late june, early july renisha as a conservative political adviser and founder of relax strategies, joins me by skype from washington. d. c. we had patty mentioned the mid term
12:34 am
elections. it was, there'll be some kind of inquiry into how the league happened, but, but who stands to benefit most from it. the democrats will or the republicans will, at this very moment in time. i think both sides can make a play for why this could benefit them. at this point also, what we should know is that democrats really have not one for the juggler in the era of trump. and i say that having sat on the other side of my career on the right, and i have supported some different kinds of cross party lives in recent elections to vote for democrats and i believe will hold certain values. now of course, we know that the mid terms are this litmus test that we need to have here in the united states in order for voters to feel something about the way things are going this country with the economy and inflation being what it is. it is a moment where we can say that maybe this is exactly what the democrats need and that they will rise to the case and, and fight back in a way that's meaningful and perhaps mobilizes or voters to do the right thing,
12:35 am
which is essentially to shut down the republican majority, and that is saying that it's going to rise again and that it's going to uphold the sanctity of life. i have no guarantee. and i think many voters, despite been conservative for many years, have any assurance that this republican party will do that. oh, no 11 recent poll from the pew research and it's just people disapprove of the supreme court being politicized. is there danger that this decision, if, if it goes the way the leak suggests, actually makes people lose faith in one of the key institutions in the country? well, i'm going to date my hears myself here for a moment. i'm, i'm an elder, millennial, somebody born after 980. and i say that because in my lifetime, there has been a sent in an understanding that the supreme court is free of is really any of the politicization that that touches our other branches. but what i'd seen over time is this
12:36 am
a real sense that the core is actually filled and becoming more filled with activist judges. and, and that's on both sides. i think anybody can make the argument for either side there, but also that congress and, and that's where i've made my career on the right in, in helping to congressional members that were social conservatives. i was an aide to them in the early 2000 into the mid to thousands. and i can say that congress is really abdicated duty to be a check on the other branches of government. so if you, if i'm looking at this as somebody that's really going to the next era my life approaching my 40 soon, i will say that i'm disappointed in really how the supreme court has acted in recent years, the judge, individual justices. and with this leak, many of us don't know what to think. it's a scary, scary moment for how the court continues from here forward in our trust in the institution as well. what about the idea that some states might sort of move to make their own decisions about this? um, we had given the news from uh, california saying that he would, you know,
12:37 am
promising he would protect the rights to abortion and saying, you know, don't think that this person, this is where it's going to stop. pay attention america. they're coming few next. if it different states do either or the go, you know, the way to banning abortion or protecting it. how does that affect kind of political parties, a bit of rooted to make decisions on, on big issues if it ends up being a sort of state by state mish mash? well, that's a complexity here as well. and, and to my previous point, i will say i'd seen also the supreme court just really kicked the ball to the states over and over again. our system here in the united states can makes it all very complex. i am born and raised in the state of west virginia, for example, a very red state. when i was growing up, it was quite purple. we voted blue statewide elections. but red presidential now it's pretty much all red. so west virginia would be one of the states that would actually buy laws. it has on the books, could really implement ban on that portion right away. depending on what happens with ro, if we're, are viewership,
12:38 am
anybody's interested in seeing some great stats on the, on what the states could do on what particular states would do. and there's a patchwork across the country. there's not one particular area of the country that's going to do one certain thing. if, if and when ro is overturned, i would, i encourage you to go check out some of the data by the government, the institute, and, and see what exactly the states could do because it's really going to be different for each american woman based on the state she's living in our, on what her access to reproductive rights, and we're reproductive right sadly. and what abortion care could look like we nisha . thank you very much. data for your thoughts from subject. thank you. the chinese capital beijing has closed dozens of subway stations and suspended many bus routes . it's attempts to stop covered, non teen spreading through. the city fencing has been put off around buildings in neighborhoods where infections, highest schools and jims already closed. and restaurants only allowed to serve

takeaways, millions of people are being tested. raging situ authorities want to avoid the type of full lockdown as caused major disruption in shanghai, or border katrina, you has more from her appointment in beijing. well, things are extremely intense. i think every day, aging residence wake up, and if there is another city wide, looked down announced people are very thankful to trying to make the most of their ability to go out tools. but with the kind of numbers we're seeing at the moment, i think most people agree that a city wide lockdown is not going to be very likely, unless we see a huge like in numbers. but what authorities are doing is feeling off neighborhoods in a very targeted way. so if you will, are fortunately in a pass of the city which is affected by cases, for example, in china and district, the eastern part of the city where i am located, then you will be locked down while the rest of the city is still has still relative

freedom now being is that the only city to announce the measures there's another city job job central china, home to 12000000 people that are now similar measures today, wednesday. and also, if you look at shanghai, china, commercial center, the most populous a city in china, further down south that remains mostly under lockdown. the official said that they have eased restrictions beginning on sunday. but because that city is continuing to see thousands of new cases every day, there's still a long way to go until that lockdown and lifted. so the majority of the 25000000 people living in shanghai pain couldn't find to that compound, or even their apartments. the u. s, as it will exclude cuba, venezuela and nicaragua, from the upcoming summit of the americas because they do not meet the necessary democratic standards it but to washington at odds with its latin american and caribbean neighbors. add to the summit, which is due to be held in los angeles or latin america,

added to lucy newman spoke exclusively to cuba as deputy foreign minister. kara's fernandez to cost you to get have hours. reaction. as the name implies, the summit of the americas is the only venue were leaders of north central and south america gathered to confront pressing problems. this year the theme is migration, but the host president joe biden has unilaterally decided to exclude 3 countries, including cuba. by o, thank you. thank you for. i met cooper's deputy foreign minister, godless, fernandez, the ga seal of annas point man for us affairs, to talk about the implications of washington's controversial decision. or we have said that a saw me that excludes some countries of the region. it's an excuse is our summit, but if you're going to have the summit, you're going to spend money on it. if you're going to go to the trouble of convening, heads of state and government, it would be to discuss the difficult problems that we have in our region,
12:42 am
which are difficult. some of them are controversial and for the summit to be successful. the useful thing to do, and the fair opportunity would be to have everybody in have everybody put forward their points of view, even if you don't like that, as we all know at cuba is undergoing a huge exodus of its citizens right now, the largest since the 1980s, actually, why do you think that is one of the basic reasons that is pushing migration is people saw that the policy of the biding government is exactly the policy that from government, which is maximum pressure toward cuba. the policy of the u. s. against cuba, in economic turns to date, is nothing short of criminal. it's a criminal policy to punish the livelihoods of people. while i've heard i asked the man mystical seal, if, as a gesture to the biden administration, the head of the summit, havana might grant an amnesty to protest his sentence, the harsh prison sentences for taking part in last year's anti government protest.
12:43 am
why would cuba have to make concessions for us to stop applying a policy that is criminal? and that is clearly unfair. what would you say to president biden if you had him on the phone right now, about the fact that he doesn't want to invite cuba to the summit of the americas when that was one of the things that the vast majority of the countries of the region fought for, for so many years. i doubt that he would speak with me. but i would say that if you're going to call it a summit, you could call it a summit of a part of the america. but you cannot collie some of the americas if you exclude some. you should not fear having frank dialog, even when there are differences. and there are differences in the region. and there are problems in many problems are regions of the countries need to talk about the countries the region are claiming that'd be an inclusive summit. and that cuba being put the u. s. should pay attention to it. northern ireland faces
