4:06 pm
a former president. a lead dictates, a ruled with an iron fist in the philippines for more than 20 years. but the fact that there has been really no recognition for all the atrocities committed by the market says by their allies and the corruption. and he himself, also a convicted activator, was facing both a $1000000.00 estate tax problems here and contact cases abroad. and the fact that during the entire campaign, he hardly accepted media interviews and skipped most of the debates. instead, focusing on this wide spread well funded online propaganda campaign to prop up his popularity. and that seemed to have worked, you know, he now has around 30000000 votes out of this more than 60000000 registered voters that were real worry here again as mentioned is accountability. what will happen to those cases involving ill gotten wealth? will he faced the press? will he faced the people during times of crisis that all remains to be seen?
4:07 pm

4:08 pm
remember that the fair that the current president leave the wait for a leader who will abide by and all the products label with there. this part that when he campaign for president and he became president, use a lot of this information and we saw that these, some of these were space plus or so it's easy for the success or to continue with this erosion of democracy because the parent asked me to wait, so we see this information, we see a weakening of institutions and 30 our standard history textbooks do not thoroughly discuss marcia law and the abuse us of the dictatorship. so it's very, very sad that when mark was become sit down as president on june 30th, we may even law those our history. so this is a battle for our future as well as for our pass and said to sri lanka now where the streets around the capital, colombo, a. com, following

4:10 pm
of the 3 armed forces being called out by the president. in fact, on our way into these areas, we've seen the air force, the navy and the army deployed at checkpoints, literally sort of stopping where he goes, checking, who's going around in them. and all of that. these have also kept control on the tensions plus that sort of initial flare up that confrontation between those 2 sides. the supporters of prime minister, my and the roger boxer. and the protestors who had been calling for his the president and the government resignation has now ease so things relatively come in colombo and in other parts of the country. from what we're hearing. charm herrera is the executive director of the national peace council of sri lanka, he says, protest is, are rejecting the political class for just to say that all $225.00 parliament area and to go they don't want them and you know,
4:11 pm
leave is very sad but when the lead of the opposition went to the practice site, after the government ruins had it, has to protest, did not stop. so we see that, that the rejection of the political party been talking and that is a kevin, that the defense guys talk know of bringing in someone from outside of the, the retired for the fusion. we had to wait in the food that needed them. one of the new to for the things of this, of this protest campaign that made people very emotional and happy that you saw young people say no to racism. we will not be food again by the portfolio fusion will made up raises to get our voice. and, but on the other hand, i know that they do cation work to be done because the device is very real in the north and east. that is not the same degree of public participation in purpose as
4:12 pm
the majority of the country who wanted for the president and his government. so, but we see that that is the hung together. everyone is agreed on the economic crisis. everyone suffers because the economic practice, but when it comes to issues such as publish sharing interest, the probably sharing accountability law crimes, then i think they'll give you back. thank you. moorehead on his knees, our including echoes growing problem with the gang violence fighting between rival drug cartels in a prison. leaves dozens dead or on the run. changing the political landscape leaders of lebanon's, anti government movement, take their fives to the ballad, hoping to victory in the upcoming elections. and a little later in school with jim a career 1st for these japanese baseball style,

4:17 pm
called the ukranian g d p. we know that military activities at some point during this war, took place at the territory of ukraine. that was responsible for generating 60 percent of the national income. we know that about a 3rd or a half of firms stopped functioning and electricity consumption, which tends to be a very good indicator for economic activity, is down by 40 percent. be out of what we need, if gas and other commodities from russia become more restricted, and the ripple effect on its neighbors and europe. the effects of restriction of natural gas on countries in the broadly defined european neighborhoods will be substantial. we project that such restriction would y out the
4:18 pm
games from the post kobuck recovery sometime during this year. and income level will not go back to the pre corporate level until next late next year. there's certainly some striking figures beyond her. what will be the impact economically if hostilities continue to escalate the long good to lead to escalate? the bigger damage to ukraine income, the higher the likelihood that refugees who are outside of the country. and that's about 10 percent of the population that they would not go back to ukraine. people who tend to these their country are often more interpret real. they often are younger, have more education. so that will be a substantial loss of human capital for ukraine. and of course would discontinue their more than they reconstructionist and dana and b,
4:19 pm
i just quickly the reports are due crimes economy would rebound though by 25 percent next year. break that down for us. and why is that figure up on the march forecast because in the much cause we were very optimistic about the war being older with a 2 to 3 months. now, our forecasts are catching up with the reality. we assume that the war will continue well into the summer, and that means greater disruption to economic activity, as well as a greater destruction of infrastructure and building. while we appreciate you breaking down for us. thank you very much. yeah, volk chick, the chief economist at the european bank for reconstruction and development, europe's poorest nation, moldova is now home to 100000 ukrainian refugees and un secretary general antonio could tear. it says it needs more help. while dover has

4:29 pm
shoulder to shoulder with, poland to supply and support ukrainian fighters fighting for their freedom. fighting for their country's independence. the united states now has $12500.00 us soldiers in poland, all on polish bases all here at the ready to defend every square inch of nato territory, which includes poland will, will that be increased it, although in the ag disable future, our force posture is absolutely adequate for any and every contingency that we could face with regard to putin and russia and will fight right now is between the ukrainian people and the russian military that has attacked it. we, our goal is to help the ukrainian people when that fight on. and thankfully, i think for all involved that conflict has not spread into
4:30 pm
a regional war, nor should it. speaking of a potential regional war, we've seen russia get pretty close to the polish border. what would nitro response be if russia trying to attack poland or any of its neighbors? how really is that threat? emily, the president has spoken on polio. president biden has spoken on polish soil and said that the u. s. will defend every square inch of need of territory put in those what that means. so i feel we have fought through and prepared for every possible contingency to make sure that poland and all of nato is secure. and at this point, we have a very peaceful context and we hope that it remains that way. is there still a chance of a diplomatic solution to end this war? what and what route as was so plain. so emily, thank you also for that question. the biden ministration is, of course,
4:31 pm
hoping that diplomacy is given a chance of by russia. at this point, none of the diplomatic off ramps have been used by the russians. despite the fact that putin's actions have cut off his people and his country from the rest of the world, is that some kind of victory or some kind of positive result for the people of russia. it's a terrible result. and we hope that the russians take these, any diplomatic offering that we can offer them, and we are, we are doing exactly that offering diplomatic off ramps as a solution. we hope they take them at mister ambassador, poland has seen such an enormous influx of paper. we're talking millions of refugees now in the country. is it reaching its limit on what it can handle? and as the u. s. and international community need to provide additional assistance . thanks, emily. it. poland has really acted like
4:32 pm
a humanitarian superpower when it comes to this. poland in the last 30 days, has taken in 3000000 refugees. and as a national policy placed every one of those refugees into a polish home or apartment never before in the history of the world has a country opened its doors to refugees with a national policy to place them into people's homes. and of course, you know, every, every act of generosity has limits. poland continues to receive, refugees continues to extend generosity. but i think it's important for the west to understand that this is not just a polish problem. this is an international problem and it's important for others to share in and join in with this challenge. last week. this government of sweden and poland co host and a donors conference here in warsaw to begin to plan for pain,
4:33 pm
the repair and damage that has occurred in ukraine. $6000000000.00 was raised. that's an, that's set. sounds like a big number. but in terms of the damage done to ukraine, it's actually a tiny number. it will be important for others to share in and join in pain for these costs, including the cost of maintaining and caring for the refugees. and while caring for the refugees, russia has kind of energy, syria, poland. what impact is that having and polish people? well, the be the, the polish government has been planning to win itself off of basically to energy addictions, coal, and russian source energy for quite a while. and whether it's ellen g, whether it's alternative sources of energy. ah, the polls have been very much developing diversification in terms of energy sources
4:34 pm
. and so when the russians did that, the impact was not actually that bad. um, but energy prices were affected and it's important for further steps to be taken by the polls and those who want to work with the polls towards further energy diversification. well, we appreciate your insights during a very busy time at mac rodzinski, the us ambassador to poland, coming to us from warsaw. thank you for your time on this knees. our thank you, emily. the government in zimbabwe has ordered banks to stop lending money to try and stop currency the valuation. the president blames banks for approving excess lines and for fueling the inflation rate of 66 percent. and you tax on all foreign currency transactions is also being imposed. ali can sat, you is an emerging markets economist, and he joins us live from kenya's, capital,
4:35 pm

4:36 pm
effective stabilizing it? absolutely not. this is focused policy making on it's not going to well, if you don't know the problem, i don't know how you deal with it. the problem is about ways to rent money printing multiple exchange rates, exchange rates, a few connected insiders can get it. and the rest of the countries having to deal with rate. so, you know, we went out and buy a whole different story as a wrecking ball and basically countries know the dos economics who are, who had the dike or a,
4:37 pm
a, a having a lot of production. and a lot of rules in line. i can over form that how comes in by ways economy be revised about ways to get to honest fx rates. so you really got to do away with all the exchange rates and then you've got it in the currency blows out rate, then you want to normalize your interest rate policy. but in more than that, i mean, you know, the government is got to realize that it's, that the economic policy is simply not working. and the cost is too great. i mean, you know, 3000000 or less the country is the clearest message. what's going on?
4:38 pm
um, you know, i don't know whether or not you can do it or are interested in doing and i think ultimately the major problem there. well, we appreciate you breaking down for us alley can set you an emerging markets economist. thanks for your time on this. me sound thank you to liberal now where voters are preparing for elections on sunday after more than 2 years of protest calling for a new government. as an hunter, reports from bay road, though is wanting change through the ballot box face and difficult task. these squares were emptied of protesters months ago. a battle for change, one by the political establishment. now, the movement for a new lebanon that began in late 2019, has shifted its focus from the street to the ballot box. different coalitions born
