2:07 am
asked about the russian crews. choice of space suit was which matched the colors of the ukrainian flag. they denied any hidden messages, but many sort of a protest against russia's war. in july, the russian crew made a much clearer political statement. they post for photos, with the flags of hans and the next to russian back break way regions in eastern ukraine. it's unfortunate that the politics on the ground have now reached up into space before the i s. s. was the one common ground that we had where, you know, it was in everyone's interest that it work. and we never neither side use the i assess for these kinds of political posturing for events on the ground. the i assess was 1st established back in 1998. research on the station has led to breakthroughs and battling cancer. all timers and heart disease monitoring natural disasters from space has also helped relief efforts here on earth. but with russia

2:09 am
be key in many areas from climate physician and pandemic preparedness to foot secuity and that distress. amid great challenge and strife, strengthening cooperation remains the best way to improve economic prospects fall and mitigate the risk of g economy fragmentation. well, let's bring in william lee. he's the chief economist at the milken institute. he previously served as deputy division chief at the i. m f he jones, his last guy from washington dc. william, good to happy with her. so this i m f report makes for some very gloomy reading, but we shouldn't be surprised by this outlook. we all knew it was coming. didn't leak. oh absolutely. in fact, the i met outlook generally reflects the consensus of opinion about what impact various shots i've had on the global economy and the russian ukraine. war has become a well known shock and the you are the i m. f analysis is pretty clear in what consequences are higher prices and slow growth. so, so let's talk about russia,
2:10 am
william, because while major economies like the usa, like china, a slowing down, rochelle and the other hand appears to be weathering the sanctions storm over the worn ukraine is purely down to russia, benefiting from the high energy prices. do we think what russia certainly is getting a lot of revenues from its sale of energy on the, even though the sanctions have been in place and the west has tried to restrict rushes access to the global financial system. russia has been managing out quite well since 2014, when it initially was subject to global sanctions because of its initial incursions into ukraine. ah, it has become much more of a self sufficient domestic economy where it substituted imported goods with domestically produce goods. so and so, so russia has feared quite well, but the sanctions are hurting. we can see the consequences of the lack of imports from the west in the equipment. the soldiers are using in their battles. it very antiquated, analog type devices that the stroke clearly have lacked the benefit of imports. and
2:11 am
it's worth pointing out william, the analysts say the picture in europe could get much worse if moscow cuts off. old gas supplies in the e. u imposes. this ban on russian oil that of a by see next year. how is that then? like to play into the overall inflation picture? well, clearly inflation will get worse, saw it before it gets better. and i think the europeans are doing some chest thumping and saying that all we can do without the russian gas imports. when the winter gets cold, i think people are going to be clamoring for more of that gas. so i question the, the voracity and integrity on those are those, those on our initial arch calls for kind of golf russian guess william, just to final thoughts you, i mean, we've been hearing now for some time, haven't we, that a global recession is now likely how can country's been insulate their economies from the worst impact of a global downturn and give us some good news. is there any light at the end of the tunnel? well, the good news actually, his hearing united states, we talk about
2:12 am
a recession, but we're starting from a point where the unemployment rate. ready is that the lowest in, in history, a 3 and a half percent. and so even if we were to start to slow down the amount of layoffs and disruption in the labor market will be really much smaller than what we've seen in past years. in the european economies on, i'm afraid to say the, it's energy intensity and energy dependence on russia makes it very subject to the price of, of, of energy coming from russia. asia, on the other hand, is subject to other shocks. and i think the best part of the world right now is still is united states willingly, really good to get your thoughts. thank you very much and have a talking to us. thanks. want him back up. not more. so to come here now does air including fire fighters begin to gain ground against california's largest wildfire are report from the yosemite national and celebrate in any 7 decades since the start of the cuban revolution. we look at the challenges that lie ahead for its leaders more not status.
