9:04 pm
ukrainian called sentenced to russian soldiers to 11 and a half years in jail for shelling civilians. ukraine has also accused russia of looting its resources with several reports that moscow has been trying to move funded goods. on choose day, a separatist leader from done the exc announced thousands of tons of metal had left mother you pull for russia. se basra is in give, he explains why ukraine is pushing for these prosecutions. now. the, i see confirm that it will be opening often and office in ukraine to collect evidence and investigate crimes and the allegations of war crimes since the russian invasion began. so it's definitely a key part of the ukrainian strategy to, to internationalize what is happening here. and the prosecutor general speaking very openly and candidly about the level of, and the scale of how many were crimes they intend to look into. as you said, 600 suspects have been identified and she detailed it, those included politicians,
9:05 pm
senior commanders in the russian hierarchy as well as people that peddled propaganda. but she very crucially stated that there are 80 people in custody and they are war crime suspects were criminals, that they intend on prosecuting and everything is going very quickly today on the day that she was meeting it at the i c. c, with a prosecutors there. the 2nd war crimes verdict was handed down. and what has to be said these, these war crunch trials are moving very fast, but speedy justice is what ukrainians consider justice served at the moment. there is a great deal of anger from the ukrainian people at what has happened and there's a great deal of appetite by the ukrainian government to satiate that anger by being seen to be doing things quickly. disturbing pictures have emerged ukrainian, and foreign journalists along with ukrainian soldiers coming on, the fire video
9:06 pm
was verified by our team and al jazeera. the exact location is not known. journalists clearly marked with press fests can be seen falling to the ground as a shall landers. yesterday, a french journalist in frederick la clerk himself was killed in the hands of 24 journalists, had been killed in ukraine since the conflict began over 3 months ago. oh, god knows aside is a program coordinator at the committee to protect journalists. she joins us from new york. good to have you with us. so we've just seen disturbing images of the latest incidents of killings of journalists. what do you think when you see pictures like that? well, we have seen these panels, videos and photographs repeatedly since the war started in weight. everybody, because what it's seen is that already is it or have not
9:07 pm
respected journalist twice reports from the conflict. zeus and the french journalist. you mentioned frederica with the knives, you're always wanting try that. who was killed while engaged in news gathering. henry ford from the conflict. so, but we at the community to protect your own channels. so we'll get into the killing sofa police 6 other at your earliest try and use the cause of they are in there have been other, at your earliest in you listed in the ukrainian army who volunteered to fight and have been killed as why you may hear different numbers, especially if they come from bo payan prestige organizations higher. but what is important here is to say that generally is harvey come a target without discrimination. and perhaps being the journalist can easily become victim of shelley in bombing because the troops hadn't to refrain from targeting
9:08 pm
civilian infrastructure or residential areas. and it was the case in the case where the frame journalists, if you manage your income, boy, you mentioned they're jealous of become targets without distinction. do you believe that journalist, though are being deliberately targeted it's very difficult to say universally, because each case is different. we see p j time to move at the circumstances, but what we have heard again and again from people on the ground including the earliest you were insured along that your own killed is that the stories have been wearing pres, insignia. 5 very clearly, sometimes there were in the market and visible from a distance, a source. the fire was each keys and whether
9:09 pm
the target was the joy therapy cost or in general, the residential areas or you know, conflict in general. but what is clear is that what has seen little respect work generally is really key and why is more? so actually a why we have repeatedly called or parties is more respect. your own is why is because their civilian is, they're protected by international humanitarian law, is civilians and all this the killing each and every, every charlie a skill in your plan so far will on that point. how confident are you that there will be accountability for the killings of these journalists?
9:10 pm
well, i hope be, i mean, you know, this is not the 1st time when there is a conflict in ukraine warehouse in general is being killed when crimea was occupied in 2014 and our south eastern areas in ukraine were under the control of fresh aback, separated and multiple journalists, including 4 in our correspondence work, you know, in some cases, you know, there were investigations. of course, it's very difficult to say how these were whole and, and unfortunately we haven't seen this situation improving in any way and are we haven't seen that russia that attack ukraine is going to change any tactics particularly towards joy covering the war. but this is something that needs to be done and i hope that all those who are right
9:11 pm
now, gathering evidence and conducting investigation into the war crimes will also work on investigating the killings of these jeremy and were we'll see justice in their killings each time. there's a major conflict because we see technology developing and, and now it's believed that they some journals to speak to them in ukraine, talking about their phones, being tracked as a means to tracking the military units that they're embedded with and so on. is it time perhaps to review some of the practices of journalism in light of where technologies is taking us? i think is a multi college is a double edged sword in a way, because many journalists have been able to keep each other informed of their security threats and risks in different areas in ukraine because they have created
9:12 pm
different groups, child groups in or what so or other messengers in their apps and also the communication, particularly with the training for it is voice probably easier than it was in 2014, 2015, a crimea, and on boss, for example, a. but at the same time i, i am aware of the concerns that you are on the community has invest, why? we have called on governments to are allowed. you're always to keep reporting without infringing, they are right to do so, and definitely not to use any spyware. anti spyware and the, the work on it is a big part of our work at the committee to protect generally, what have hold on the governments and also into governmental organizations and international organizations. to you know,
9:13 pm
refrain from using technology to eliminate, press freedom. and johnny's, if you're a teacher report ok, thank you so much for your thoughts on that. those aside, thank you. the leaders of ramped up an extraordinary summit in brussels, dominated by the war and ukraine. on monday they decided to partially ban russian oil imports by the end of the year. well, that was a compromise deal to overcome objections by hungry and other member states who are more dependent on russian energy. you might remember that in the sy the lead us decided to phase out the dependency on russian fossil fuels as soon as possible . we started with coal. yesterday in the middle of the night, we decided then to have a ban. now on defacto 90 percent of russian oil imports to the european union
9:14 pm
by the end of the year, jane space as more from the summit and brussels. what was achieved at the summit as the e. u has finally passed its 6th round of sanctions, which had been stored for over a month, but they've had to water down the proposals to get them past. the original plan was for a total ban on oil imports from russia. now they've decided on a compromise to keep hungary and hunger is prime minister victor oberon had been blocking this to keep him happy. they decided that oil that comes in on a ship from russia must be band oil coming in on a pipeline from russia for now has a temporary exemption. now 2 countries, poland and germany say even though they get their all by pipeline, they will voluntarily decide not to have that all any more to stop those import. but that temporary exemption, particularly for hungary. how long does that last for no time scale has been given,
9:15 pm
and it's interesting that the hungarian prime minister victor, or burn has been on facebook. he posted on facebook. a boastful post hungry is exempt from the oil embargo, so questions still on that issue. they also discussed food security and the problem of getting the grain that's trapped in ukraine out of the country. but one thing that wasn't discussed at this summit is the candidate status of ukraine to join the european union that suddenly that president zalinski once it's near the top of his list, that's been deferred to the next you summit, which take place in just under a month's time now the war in ukraine is pushing up prices in the years and reaching another high in may. the 8 point one percent inflation rate is the highest since records for the euro began back in 1997 or the increase. it's partly due to a 39 percent rise in energy cost this year. food, alcohol,
9:16 pm
and tobacco prices of all that stuff. well that's been rising. it's now risen 7 and a half the cent. eric cheney is an economic advisor with institute maintain. that's a think tank dedicated to public policy in france in europe. he says, savings accumulated by households during the pandemic has led to a surgeon consumer spending. but he expects economies to go into recession. it's partially due to the war in the grant with the russian aggression to ukraine. but the truth is that inflation was already creeping up before the beginning of the invasion. and it's a kind of global phenomenon which started with the pers copied recovery. and all the bottlenecks in economy around the world. so yes, the war in ukraine as added to this pre existing inflation through energy
9:17 pm
prices and progressively through food prices. but when you look at the numbers in detail, as i do, you see that unique labor costs are also rising. and companies are pilling, that they are going to in grease prices because their input prices have been increasing. and the impact on consumption is not very high because there is a very high level of savings which i can related during the coffee crisis. but a very important point if that despite the rising inflation 8 percent, that is quite a lot that these more than during the german unification where inflation was a 6 percent up. this should lead to a drop in consumption because the for chasing power of families of wage earners is going down. and this is not really happening because a lot of savings of been actually related over the last years,
9:18 pm
which allows people to spend even though their incomes ah dented by inflation. and that makes things very complicated figures. when you look at the numbers and we have very detailed numbers, i can say that for the french economy, it is about 80 percent of households that i could related savings during the cubby crisis because they were subsidized by the government. all wage earners were subsidized and there is a lot of savings. 130000000000 euros of excess savings. now for the really lower part of income, there is a lot of government simple. you know, that is the mantra that you should not let people suffer from the rise of inflation . ah,
9:19 pm
valley speaker of lebanon's parliament for the past 30 years has been reelected. nearby berry was chosen by and please in the 1st session of parliament following an election earlier this month before he was narrowly voted in and peace, making their debut march to parliament calling for change. then hold reports from beirut. 4 0, it's a moment of change. oh, representatives of lebanon's protest movement making their way to parliament. they walked past security forces, who once kept them out during massive demonstrations in recent years. it's the 1st session of the newly elected legislature. and these 1st time, employees are hoping to bring change to a decades old system. there is no democracy in lebanon, what the consultation and completion system. but we are here to leave wars democrats in lebanon, and to reinforce even the right. what gun on that if you,

9:21 pm
a new president. but the current landscape in parliament, the lack of a clear cut majority means there could be protracted negotiations. an extended political vacuum won't help a state and an economy that has all that collapsed. the parliament has failed over the years to implement or undertake any economic reforms for that matter. and during the crisis, in fact, the parliament of structed, economic changes and economy can be forms. politicians are also accused of obstructing accountability for the route port explosion that killed more than $200.00 people. 2 years ago. that was, the state killed my brother. they are responsible and we want to know the truth. those who are confronting the system. no democratic change cannot come overnight, but today's vote appears to be the beginning of their elders. eda beta paula jacobi on is a lebanese member of parliament. took part in that march. she accuses levance

9:23 pm
would everyone, but they bought a lot, a lot of people, and unfortunately we're trying to tell people this time used to vote your voice to change things in lebanon, but don't, don't sell your votes. and unfortunately, here we are again, stuck with the, with the same people, but the statute has changed. i heard that your report receptacle is the same. i don't agree on that last time. very good. 9065 and there's 5 or 6 employees who doesn't want to reveal that the voted for him if they were, they voted for and then in the darkness they were saying that when that was for him, so not things are changing. it's slow, but we are going to change once. this is the 1st time they do read proper elections without knowing beforehand what's the outcome they were sweating.
9:24 pm
nobody knew if he will get 65, they to get the vice president elected to the cc 4 votes, and we also did not accept this. so it wasn't this time, it was hard to get the results. so even then doing years and years survey impreza and alexander, which has been sworn in for his 2nd term in his inaugural speech, which is said the country will continue on its path to you membership. the war in ukraine has put service under pressure to choose between ties with moscow and his aspirations to join the e u. but despite voting in favor of 3 un resolutions condemning the invasion, serbia is the only european state that has not joined sanctions against fresh and new york's mayor as being criticized for how the city treats homeless people.

9:31 pm
ah, welcome back here watching out just in time to recap our headlines now. russian forces have sees control of most of the eastern ukrainian city of c. we have done yet. it's considered kate moscow's efforts to take law, which is part of the don thus region. that is where russia has supported separatists for years. european union leaders say rushes war effort will take a significant financial hit because of their ban on most russian oil exports leaders. brussels reached a compromise for recall objections from you. members. more dependent on russian energy, international criminal court, and ukraine's chief prosecutor say they're investigating suspected war crimes
9:32 pm
committed by russian forces. brain says it started prosecuting 80 out of $600.00 russian suspects. toby cabman is the co founder of gordon nick, a group and co head of god of nick, a 37 international justice chambers in london. he says the timeline for the investigations will be a lengthy one, but it's important to document crimes. as the invasion continues. one of the greatest challenges that they do have is that the, the war is raging on as we've seen, where we're also seeing mass graves being uncovered even even today. so it is a very, very difficult task. i think what's important is that we are saying unprecedented resources being, being given, to the prosecuting authorities and with the joint investigated tough forces that are bringing together countries like parents, lithuania, countries that have an interest in investigating and prosecuting these matters
9:33 pm
domestically. i think that the resources are being placed, but i think what we would like to see much more is the strengthening of the prescript general's office and support been given to her officer that they can be properly investigated. as we know, the court will not be able to deal with everything the length of time, what kinds investigations by that nature are complex and can take many, many years. so i think we'll be looking at the situation in ukraine for many years to come as we have seen in other areas such as governor where they're still prosecuting crimes from united to $95.00 conflict in terms of whether we can get the perpetrators before court. yes, of course, the majority of the perpetrators are going to be russian military and political figures that will not necessarily cooperate with an investigation. but that's why the documentation of these crimes has to know so that the evidence is safeguarded.
9:34 pm
so even if we're not able to get through to court today or tomorrow, we will be able to get the most senior trades before our court. one day, 10 days after australians voted in the general election has been confirmed that the labor government has secured a majority in the lower house of parliament. that means prime minister anthea bernice won't have to rely on independent them peace. the pass legislation recounting of votes continued for days after the election on may the 21st because of type races in some constituencies in the center left leader campaigns on stepping up, australia's climate commitments and setting up a new anti corruption commission is current of iris restrictions and china as to biggest cities of finally easing for millions of people who have been stuck in doors. shanghai is lifting its 2 month, locked down from midnight on wednesday. many businesses can reopen and there'll be
