12:07 am
mary, you to me and tired crisis for that. and people left our about any channel supply of gas, water, or electricity. and of course there is no connection there anymore. so we do not actually know the, the latest data or information on the application or the state of play on the wrong . but, but we do know that it's very tough and merrily impossible to watch. so very difficult to survive. and we have seen similar images and scenes paying out, for example, in the southern port city of mary pole. would you say the situation that or don't you ask? is that, is it similar to that or might it be was what did your friends and relatives tell you about the conditions inside of are done yet? sarah ask isn't due to the 2nd, mary paul, and i'm afraid to be on us that even worse at the cities being vomited and broken by palms that is teetering on the very edge of life right now. and been destroyed
12:08 am
totally block by block to my knowledge, 90 percent of houses talk to the cities damaged and of these 60 percent cannot be recovered anymore. and now it is impossible to deliver him turn aide to the city because there are, have a st pies go on inside and people are still in desperate, desperate need of food and water supply. so running really low and rockets continuously fall on their homes. and there is no possibility to lease or to management. fortunately from sort of part control by credit troops. this possible. but it is very much for the chances of cape a very, very tiny yes, because the city has been encircled. it's significant to the russians. and because the fighting has become more fierce in recent weeks, it's very difficult to get humanitarian supplies in to get civilians out safely. but when the fighting 1st started, did your family make
12:09 am
a conscious decision to stay in the city regardless of, of what happens and what comes next. when the war started, my family, the my, that congress, this isn't the state in the town and other to protect our homes. because back to the 24th of every, everybody had had his on her jobs and everything was kind of fine. and compared to what's going on there right now, but it is not fine there and more so i'm very glad that the majority of my family managed his cape and invasion key of right now. and but to be very, very much every day about the, about the life count 1000 of other people would still stay there. and of course i relatives for amanda can very much much help that that's the international forces. international partners will do help. and those
12:10 am
will make the create an army able to, to fight for. and the friend each and every square meter of our region, and give people hope for having their, their elf and their, their crown, and their homes back back to normal. to people still have that hope because the suggestion is that perhaps even with weapons and artillery support from the west, the cranes are likely to retreat from the area even if it's tactical. it is about tactics, but it is all about tactics and we do understand that several mess as a key point for, for russian forces to control class. it's one of the case. it is in the don bus region. but as to this, the president of france said and has been confirmed, but the credit service redo will, will fight for each and every me to a land. and they will protest it's and we will not keep up and they will not check
12:11 am
replies. and by any cost, any number nova, thank you very much for joining, giving us a sense of the conditions and what's happening inside. so that are done yet sc, eastern ukraine or conflict. and ukraine has also created a global food crisis, pushing a cost of wheat and other staples around the world. now, russia's foreign minister says moscow will guarantee the exports of ukrainian grain, but only with conditions. so gala rove who is currently visiting bahrain says, you must 1st remove all mines from its seaports. not later when you know pretty much the we've our friends in detail about the measures taken by the russian side for more than a month to ensure the free passage of ukrainian grain carrying ships which are currently trapped in ukrainian portals. but for this, ukrainian officials must clear minds from ukrainian territorial waters. the de mining problem which we have been drawing the attention of western colleagues for
12:12 am
several weeks is resolved. the russian navy will ensure that these ships passing to the mediterranean and then to their destination. oh development, say united nation to saying that had constructive discussions in moscow and facilitating rushing grain and fertilize exports to global market. christian salumi has more on that from un headquarters in new york. the u. n. is attempting to work out a deal to allow more russian wheat and fertilizer to get to the market, as well as ukrainian wheat tab, alleviate rising food prices, which have hit the developing world particularly hard russia and ukraine account for about a 3rd of the world's wheat production and millions of times of grain have remained stuck in ukrainian silos due to the fighting. russia has blamed us sanctions for the problems exporting. it's green. united states ambassador to the un denied that but said the discussions are welcome. these are not being sanction,
12:13 am
but companies are a little nervous. ah, and we're prepared to give them comfort letters if that will help to encourage them as well as insurance companies to support those efforts to get a grain out of russia. that again is very needed by the international community, but i will say rush is able to get his oil out and that's sanctioned. ah, they should be able to get their grain out that's not sanctioned to help get ukrainian wheat from ukrainian ports. turkey would play a role under the un proposal. the un says the talks have been constructive and are continuing all in developments elsewhere. you leaders have wrapped up an extraordinary summit in brussels, which was, of course, dominated by what's happening in ukraine, and was a shoot issue of unity though. the block, reaching a late, not agreement that to van most russian oil imports by the end of the year. it's the
12:14 am
toughest sanction yet on moscow, despite compromises to get across the line hungry. so back here in the czech republic, all heavily dependent on russian gas. now, now they were excluded from the embargo. you might remember that in the sy the leaders decided to phase out the dependency on washing fossil fuels as soon as possible. we started with cold yesterday in the middle of the night, we decided then to have a band now on the fact to 90 percent of russian oil imports to the european union by the end of the year. and now diplomatic edison james base has been following those developments from brussels. what was achieved this summer as the e. u has finally passed the 6th round of sanctions, which had been sold for over a month. but they 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
12:15 am
a compromise to keep hungry and hunger as 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 banned all coming in on a pipeline from russia. for now, it has a temporary exemption. now 2 countries, poland, germany say, even though they get there 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, and it's interesting that the hungarian prime minister victor, or burn has been on facebook. you 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
12:16 am
that wasn't discussed at this summit is the candidate status of ukraine to join european union that somebody 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 here than he is our life from london. much more still ahead on the program e 1st funerals, al, for the victims of last week's math shooting a texas elementary school. life begins to return to normal in china's to begin cities covered restrictions, ease and shanghai, and beijing. and then a chance or a big moment in major league baseball season. ah, now the speaker of lebanon's parliament for the past 30 years has been re elected now be a barrier was chosen by m. p. 's and the 1st session of parliament following this
12:17 am
month's election before he was narrowly voted in new and peace march to parliament, calling for change as arizona. honda reports from the lebanese capital they wrote. 4 it's a moment of change. 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 m p 's are hoping to bring change to a decades old system. there is no them. ok in lebanon. what? because the patient and i completion that system. but we are here to read for democrats in lebanon, and today, unfortunately, i'm on the right. what gun on that if there was any, any kind of compromises? compromises based on power sharing between the political establishment have long
12:18 am
been how politics is done here? that's how parliamentary speaker b barry was re elected to have been in the position for 3 decades and for many a symbol of a failed system, riddled with corruption. but this time it was different. bery failed to get the endorsement of a majority and one with the limit of march and a blow, but symbolic. and i know the problem has to be a habit for those who are hoping for radical change that hasn't happened. change in peace, couldn't win enough. see, the status quote didn't change yet, and it's lebanese leaders who have been in power, who are expected to have the final say on what's next. so vote for a new speaker starts a constitutional process that includes the formation of a new government and in a few months is the election of a new president. but the current landscape in parliament, the lack of a clear cut majority means there could be protracted negotiations. an extended
12:19 am
political vacuum won't help a state and an economy that has all but collapse. 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 obstructed economic changes and economy can be forms. politicians are also accused of destructing accountability for the baby port explosion that killed more than $200.00 people. 2 years ago. though in 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 to be baptized investigative journalist and founder of the baby reports he joins as lives now. one of the parliament's immediate priorities and challenges. well,
12:20 am
the big challenge is to get out the tremendous financial whole that love on it. that's one of the highest debts in the world. it has an economy that has been tatters. the local currency has lost over 90 percent of its value. that means if you have $100.00 in the bank, you get $10.00. people have seen their salary slashed. and so while this was a historic election and we have seen a lot of interesting developments, and the hope is that these new members of problem will bring a new culture of politics and will be able to, you know, be the eyes in the years of the public inside the chamber of parliament, the same time democracy alone will not save lebanon and then a note in her report, a power vacuum is not good for. ready economies and this parliament is very divided and so it's very hard to see how to be a united plan and only united plan will help a country in such a dire straight. i mean, it's one of the worst crisis that was ever seen to divide it parliament very fragmented between different groups. what does that mean?
12:21 am
chord law can paralysis on the issues that matter most to the lebanese people. yeah, that's right. i mean now you know, has below that there is no majority in parliament, there's no majority coalition. so that's always going to be, that's gonna be a lot of paralysis, a lot of filibustering if you will. and hezbollah is now played against one of its arch enemies, the saudi supported group that close united states of america, and really is very militant and it's, and it's a missile of hezbollah. so we might see a lot of, you know, political grandstanding a lot of scandals, but that's kind of like, what's not really needed because the economy, the world economy needs to see love on, you know, building itself, making a product, selling things. we're a country that makes almost no product. we import 80 percent of our products, where a consumer country that lacks any major manufacturing industry. so, you know, democracy alone is a step forward that we are all celebrating. and we have seen even a member of parliament who's shot by the police being elected department,
12:22 am
which is an amazing feat for democracy in lebanon or anywhere. but the fact of the matter remains is that countries need strong economies independent, not just democracy. how is this? is you say it's absolutely critical to address this. what many says already and existing economic collapse in the country for that has to be a progress and talks with the international monetary fund. but when you look at the timeline for the rest of the year, now, how is this division in polymer going to affect the very significant presidential election coming up in a couple of months in october? you know, lebanon is famous for massive delays in government formation and making a government and love. and i was like making world peace. you have to get your run . and i've said together the same page, that's very hard, that can take many months and years. and we've had times when there was no precedent lebanon for a year, almost 2 years. and so these boys will just be, you know, even worse for the economy. and it's already on the, on the base level, people are basically trying to get water trying to get like tricity,
12:23 am
just the basic services they can't even afford gasoline to get to work anymore. and so it's hard to imagine how another political back into more political infighting will really help the country this point. right, so what happens and they're going to be polar, are all polarizing issues between has bolas, on the month talks at the i, m f, the banking system, government formation, presidential nomination, know that they're going to be divide all of this. now if it stays that way and people are stuck in a situation, was not enough food and as you say, not enough clean water in these living condition. does that mean tensions on the streets? well, we haven't seen that so far. the streets remain pretty common love and they've been through so much they've been through one of the biggest explosions in the world that we're seeing. they've been through the west of christ there were ever seen. and people have really, you know, just tried to, to manage. but we don't know how long that's gonna last, but for now we don't see any real interest in a war and not usually
12:24 am
a war and love on means that foreign countries have to start playing weapons. and the international community doesn't seem to have an appetite for war and love at this point. so we might see more increasing crime, more desperation of people and more anger. but unfortunately, people who don't even have the means to get around town, it's going to be difficult to do anything more than that this point. so people are kind of really stuck and they're just trying to get out of this country if they can unfortunately have be better. thank you very much training staff from a work. if you the 1st funerals are taking place for those killed in last week's mast shooting at a school in the us state of texas mass for amory joe garza have been has been held at sacred heart catholic church. she was 10 years old. the congregation heard she loved to draw at her step father's request, some mourners dressed in her favorite colors of lilac and purple for and so she tried to use a mobile phone. she'd reset been given her birthday to call the police during the
12:25 am
shooting. more funerals will be held over the next 2 and a half weeks. as people in ovalo, they say good bye to the 19 students and 2 teachers killed in the attack. meanwhile, u. s. president joe biden is looking at possibly executive action to combat gun violence. the white house is a bite once federal laws enacted by congress, but that he would also consider other measures. we are looking at other executive actions that we can possibly do this president has done more executive actions at this point than any other president, but it's not up to him alone. he cannot do this alone. this is what you heard him say to to kelly. oh, yesterday, and so congress needs to act so we can have federal law legislation on the books, so we can stop this epidemic that we're seeing across the country elsewhere, legislation to bam, the sale of hand guns has been proposed in canada,
12:26 am
a prime minister just intruder says plans to tight and gun laws that already been in the works. but the recent mass shootings in the u. s. a fast tracked crackdown catch you love us diane reports. it's been seen as the most ambitious proposal yet to restrict firearms in canada. prime minister justin trudeau describes it as a national freeze of hand gun ownership. what this means is that it will no longer be possible to buy cell transfer or import handguns anywhere in canada. in other words, were capping the market for under the bill canadians who all ready have hand guns can keep them. but any one involved in domestic violence or criminal harassment will lose their firearm license. the size of ammunition magazines will be limited, and there will be increase penalties for gun smuggling. the crack down comes days
12:27 am
after the school shooting and texas which killed $21.00 people. while canada has stricter gun laws on the us. canadians have suffered an increase of gun violence and recent years. in 2020 it band, semi automatic rifles after 22 people were killed in a mesh shooting inova scotia. some gun own or say they're contesting that van in court. the new legislation is expected to be enacted in the autumn, but a rush to by hand guns ahead of the band isn't expected authority, se sales are already heavily regulated. katya little piece of a young al jazeera. now the u. s. president and museum prime minister have raised concerns about security agreement between china and the solomon islands, during a meeting at the white house, jo, by that inches and are done disgust, stepping off engagement with pacific island nations to count a. china's growing influence biden is saying the us wants to partner with the
12:28 am
region rather than dictate to those countries. chinese foreign ministers currently half way through a diplomatic tor the pacific, hoping to deepen his country's ties. that our white house correspondent, kimberly hulk. it has more. you know, it was the 1st oval office meeting between the u. s. president and new zealand prime minister, a chance for washington to counter china's growing influence in the indo pacific region. but for new zealand, it was also an opportunity to express that when it comes to business, there are no loyalties. he had an exchange of views on the pacific, currently very clear view on both sides that the pacific needs to determine end is determining its own rules of engagement and as partners. we need to make sure that we're hearing what via critical focus and areas of interest are for us to partner on a partnership is k, it is not
12:29 am
a donor donate relationship and nor should it be. and i think that's the approach that i hear from the united states. certainly the approach of new zealand, regardless of who within the pacifica, engaging with the meeting lasted roughly 90 minutes and included other topics like climate change, trade and even how the united states and new zealand could cooperate in space. and that included the vice president comma la harrison, that conversation. but there was also the topic of gun control in light of the shooting that took place last week in texas. and how the united states could potentially bound assault weapons when it comes to that effort in new zealand. unlike the united states, the new zealand prime minister says that effort in new zealand was met with unanimous support. an alger zara presenter has been sentenced in absentia to 15 years in prison by a court in egypt. i'm a tar was charged with spreading false news for an interview conducted in 2018.
12:30 am

12:31 am
but the whole out of their media network has continued to demand a rapid independent transfer investigation to the killing of its journalist in the occupied west bank. sharina buckley was shot in the head by israeli forces while she was on assignment jeanine. on the day of her funeral israeli forces storm the procession and started beating mourners, causing pull barras to almost drop her casket magazine to national community of condemned her killing. and continue to call for an investigation. a blackledge been with al jazeera for 25 years covering the story of these railey occupation. she was known as the voice of palestine as well. oh rights groups including amnesty international and human rights watch of joint forces in london to denounce israel for carrying out what they say is the crime of a party in its treatment of palestinians. and you've bach asthma on this now. the killing of al jazeera correspondent, sharina o'clock on may the 11th by authority, forces spawn outrage around the world amongst journalists,
12:32 am
and amongst leading human rights organizations as well. many of those groups represented here at this discussion. debating what underpins 55 years of brutality and violence against palestinian people among those talking here. oh my shaquille, director of palestine and israel a human rights watch. he himself was expel from israel for his work and those all too well about the situation on the ground. soon we're talking about the israeli palestinian context and we use the word apartheid. we're referring to israel, systematic oppression of millions of palestinians undertaken in a context in which there are inhumane acts serious abuses of the fundamental rights of palestinians, undertaken by a government whose underlying policy intends to maintain the domination by one people over another. so there's no shortage of international outrage over the killing of serene abilene clairol al jazeera colleague. but out of human rights
12:33 am
organizations like yours, capitalize on that outrage. i think it's critical to understand that sharing a block less killing is not an isolated incident. it's taking place in a context in which palestinians, millions of palestinians live a daily reality, reality of structural violence, repression and apartheid. we need to understand the trina block, thus killing comes in a context of israel methodically using excessive force of killing journalists. the un commission of inquiry back in a report in 2019 document. how israeli authorities fired on journalist doing their job, knowing who they were, we must understand that is really, authorities. impunity is endemic. they regularly commit grave abuses and nobody's held to accounts. i think it's critical to situate schraner block las killing in this larger context. and to understand that to overcome this cycle, to prevent future killings of journalists, of doctors, of people like sharing
12:34 am
a block law. there's a fundamental need to reevaluate our approach to this situation. we to call reality by what it is apartheid and we need to take the sorts of human rights based measures that are commiserate with abuses of this gravity. the leading human rights figures represented here, believe that like apartheid in south africa. and now is the time for the world to mainstream, the struggle of the palestinian people and put what's happening there very much in the past to to halfway on the program. they are the wells and biggest boy band y b t s was invited to the white house to discuss patient hate and it feels pretty good to be this f one drive right now have those details a little bit later. ah,
