they're going to stop oil. that comes from russia to the buy ship. that's all going to be stopped by the oil that comes pumped in on a pipeline. 2 countries rational, it comes in on a pipeline. that is not at this stage going to be stopped. you estimating that that's 2 thirds of rational let be stopped, but one 3rd that won't and that one 3rd coming on the pipeline. clearly that is a concession to a country like hungry, which would be putting its foot down even at the start of this meeting. because there are a lot country and they get that oil from russia by a pipeline. and james, okay, you're talking about the oil. what else is in the functions package? well, well it, this is, it is worth telling you the 6 sanctions package by the european union. they are managed to get the other ones through relatively easily. this one was stalled as

2:19 am
military and financial ambitions in the region. now the sale of chelsea football club for more than $5000000000.00 has not been completed. a london based club was put up for sale in march. that was just before the previous owner, russian oligarchy, roman abramivitch, was sanctioned by the u. k. government funding, the outbreak of the ukraine war clubs when bought by at american consortium, headed by sports, ty, to told bodie were joining us now for more than this. some london, as governor hamilton, he's editor at sports business, govern. good to have you back with us and look at, i mean, it's worth pointing out. this is the biggest sale of a football club about how important is it? gavin, the english football and the premier league more broadly that this deal has now gone through. well, i think it's important to have chelsea in the premier league there was always a danger that they the do might not be completed. and chelsea would go go out of business, so that was a concern, so it's a, it's good for, for the premier league that the deal has been completed. and it's good that the
2:20 am
consorts him has promised to invest a large sum or that 5000000000 that you mention into the t and into the infrastructure of chelsea. because remember, ram rich spent an awful lot of money on chelsea. you know, he cover debts of $1500000000.00 pounds and was $2000000000.00 that has been written off now. but he, it, chelsea was a loss making business. there might be 19 years. so this new consortium has got to be prepared to spend a lot of money if they are to make and keep josie assets in the future. and that's an interesting point. you make gavin, because many british football fans know very little about todd boley and his los angeles dodgers. but the consortium there, you talk about the money given, but the consortium will want some very quick returns on their investment. how will chelsea provide that quickly? well, that's a question and it's very hard to see how they will get a return in the short term. because football is a joining business. it requires a lot of money to be spent on new players on players who are that big salaries. the
2:21 am
support is demanding, they want to see new people coming into the club. so there will be a lot of pressure on them to spend money, and they needs to invest in the stadium as well. so in the short term, it's hard to see how buy will make that money back. i think in the long term technological developments with tv rights may see them make a profit in turn, a profit in the future. but i think we're quite a few years of that in the, in the short term they will lose money and enrollment. brockovich. gavin ushered in a very successful appeared for the club. but, but chelsea as you say, now face is mounting debts. should the fans be worried or optimistic about the future of the club? well, i think they go to see what the new owners do with the money and if they are prepared to just spend money because there are so many competitors now are new cost . so now have new owners who are paid to spend the huge amounts of money. we've
2:22 am
seen the amount of money that matches the city of spending this summer on earning calling the striker from from germany percent you may have offered killian battery, this record breaking contract. okay. to keep him in parents get a little lower competition. yeah. let me jump in with a final question because they're running out of time. what is all of this then saying about how football clubs to be bought and sold in future. i mean, rich people like a brand of it's bought chelsea, but now we're seeing whole countries by clubs, cattle owns p. s g. saudi arabia, as you pointed out, newcastle. yeah, of what we're going to see in the future is a small group of super clubs. if you like, pulling further and further away from the bulk of football, and those clubs will be owned by whole countries, by consortiums of billionaires, people with huge amounts of money to spend on on their, for google govern, hamilton, always good to have you here now to 0 thanks again, gavin, for your insight. thank you. now a group of israeli ultra nationalists of march through the main street of hebron in the occupied west bank crowds with flags then to the abraham in mos compound during
2:23 am
their march through the city. when it comes a day off, a tens of thousands of flag waving israeli ultra nationalists march through occupied east jerusalem. israel's defense minister now says it's time to consider designating extreme right wing groups. as tara organizations, human con reports from occupied east jerusalem. the 2 groups he's talking about ali hava and la familia, la familia, is a full hooligan organization. there's no other way of describing them. other than that, they follow jerusalem by tar, but they've been accused of races behavior of attacking palestinian israelis. arabs and they both have been accused of criminal activity. the other. oh, a religious oh to nationalist organization that dedicated to the purity of jewish blood. they don't want any arabs, any palestinian israelis in historical palestine at all. and they were rid of them all and they espouse things like attacking people. if they find out that they're in
2:24 am
a mixed relationship. so that's those, the kind of groups are talking about. but this message, it doesn't mean that those groups will be designated any time soon. a, in fact i see what might happen is that this could take quite a while because there has to be a wide agreement between all of those members of the coalition for it to go forward . and that's very difficult. the other thing that natalia bennett needs to worry about is the language we saw. the drusilla's flag marks those insults that hate speech. death, arabs insulting the journey as colon and terrorist. you know we, i was there. that's exactly why i experienced all of that. may mean that another palestinian israeli member, the kinessa key member of the coalition, resigns. if that happens, the coalition falls to pieces. the government falls on this early elections. the use delegation and the occupied west bank and gaza as hell. the reception ceremony to mark europe day with some that dedicated to al jazeera journal, assuring acclaim. sharina was shot in the head by his rainy forces, while an assignment in jeanine. either abraham attended the event in ramallah in
2:25 am
the occupied west back. when we entered the reception here, there was a poster of her. she's here in a spirit. people are talking about her as either staff. her colleagues are here because they want to make it clear that they want just this port city and i'll click a the speaker there you mission representative. mr. just have been has been talking about the fact that there needs to be justice. he honored the brother of city in tony a broccoli, you know shitty and has been known here as the voice of palestine. she meant so much to so many palestinian. this is to find many palestinians. this is why it wasn't absent from the event today. she's going to be honored to room her brother. now we are joined the here today by the you. mission. had mr. been one works. 30 od. thank you. and i wanna point out that in your speech the day,
2:26 am
you talked about justice for palestinians. the fact that they've been suffering, but you also said that journalists are the ones who hold a people accountable, who is speak truth to power. now how are we going to ensure that our beloved could a colleague sitting up late is we are gonna hold her killers, accounted as i said, to my speech, and thank you for having me on you. a very important program. i'm a big fan of, of the year, and i think it's important to different tremendous job. i'm very piece that you have such a cohort of support to so much a 0 you. as i said to my speech, we call on all authorities for a swift, forward independent investigation to pay the senior side has finished investigation . the attorney side has declined to pursue accumulate investigation. i think international partners are ready to support all sites to actually make sure that
2:27 am
those who killed her be brought to justice. we need to know if the to it cannot be that we leave it in the unknown. so i think it's with your thirty's now to do the next step. we can only offer assistance, but the authorities have to requested. and i think ideally should probably be an international effort where everybody has access to the files and can share best international practice available to ensure that those who killed serene. i've brought to just beyond condemnation, beyond statement, beyond offerings. what is you going to do to make sure that shooting gets just but what can you don't do it completely? i mean, i'm put the question to you. we make statements, we call on the authorities. we offer help, but we cannot impose ourselves camry. so you know what i can do,
2:28 am
i can basically reinforce the message for justice for accountability, but i can carry out myself the investigation unless i am on my experts are invited . thank you so much. that has been the worst, but we're here at the you're a big at the event where palestinians are coming. they are marking this day, but it's not left on many palestinians that they want to be clear. and they want the message to be clear. and we heard the palestinian minister talk about this. we want justice for sharing a block. now the us has condemned iran. caesar to greek or tank is in the gulf last week. the ships were see shortly after tear and warned it would take action against athens over the confiscation of iranian oils. my vessel of the greek coast last month. the us in greece, of course, around to immediately release the tank as cargo and crew decades of war. and afghanistan of devastated its education system from many children's school just isn't an option, especially in remote areas,
2:29 am
that lack basic infrastructure. but an innovative project is trying to change all that. katelyn has had a young asthma. i. this is the only school. most of these children have ever known a mole while school call penn path travels from village to village in kandahar province. in southern afghanistan, there are no classrooms or desks, but there is a will to learn. but that's a high did this, it is very nice here and i'm learning a lot. i just wish that the schools were my eldest sister cousins, and other older girls would open again honey. the make shift classroom is carried on a motorbike with a tv set and books with subjects taught by 8 volunteers. schools are scarce in these remote areas and across afghanistan, around 3 and a half 1000000 children, mostly girls don't go to school on that up yet on the huddle, if they want,
2:30 am
long lasting peace and stability in afghanistan. and if the countries to stand alongside the rest of the world, all the attention should be given to education, especially in the areas where there have been no schools in the last 20 years, the actual and the new car. back in march, the taliban ordered schools for girls above the 6th grade to close for girls living in remote areas. the 1st challenge is not having access to a school then as they get older, not being allowed to attend one. what you do these villagers support the project, but convincing a deeply conservative society to allow their daughters to study in school isn't always welcomed, but there are differing voices that us beautiful couple of the showing junior. we are very happy that boys and girls are able to study here what i think the government must reopen, all schools until the 12th grade for both boys and girls. it's their islamic right . and it should be given to them, pull it up when it's done.
