3:19 am
its surroundings and all the columbia and abroad. what is that to day? our 2nd opportunity begins and we have earned it. you have earned is that your effort was worth it. you know, it's time for change. our future hasn't been written or portable, neither or 7 am. it is a senior and a in countries analyst with control risks, and she's joining us now from bogota, vega, to happy with us on the algae 0. ma'am. thank you very much. indeed. columbia's got the highest level of inflation for about 20 years. how much could life change for colombians under the new government? hi, thank you so much for having me. yes. actually we have an inflation right now. 10.2 percent, the highest since 2001 and kilometers are facing very difficult times in, in what is about economy and the price of food and the presence of fuel is actually been controlled. but we could change as this is not sustainable in the long term without better has promised to overcome the situation. but these will take time and we're definitely going through
3:20 am
a very difficult international conflict that will make difficult face. the economic refreshing of many countries in the world are about to enter or just enter and they're about to confirm. so he will definitely have a difficult situation to manage and he will be presenting congress in the next few days. tax reform that will try to sort of increase tax collection to be able to implement and all the promises he made about social reforms to help fight poverty and inequality. but these will definitely be one of his biggest challenges for the next 4 years. i would imagine another challenge is trying to keep control of what is a very diverse cabinet that he's put together. coupled with the fact that the military, which of course plays a big role in columbia in life and has been a subject to a lot of criticism by gustavo petro over the years. and i,
3:21 am
violet cons, doesn't like him very much. how confident can colombians be? do you think that he's actually going to be able to deliver on the promises that he's making? yeah, absolutely. you touch up on one of his most complicated things right now is his cabinet members. he just finished their appointments a few minutes ago. actually with the last few names. he had cabinet members are very diverse. you mention we have more women than men. the 1st time ever in the history of columbia that you can see a cabinet composed like this. and they are diverse not only in the terms of gender, but also in terms of the expertise they all have. some of them are more technical from others or more sort of into the political aspects of experience they have in their own industry. in terms of the fence, we have a minister of defense that it has a very difficult already relationship with the security forces. he has been men
3:22 am
that criticize through very often the security for us. and we expect this to become a situation that may be brings other challenges to what we can see in the different folly he and his speech to they talk about the politics of life that the defense of life rather than the traditional beef and parties, we have many different groups, regions, like the fog dissidence and or paramita groups like the golf plan, who have claim interest in negotiating the piece with the government. but it would not be easy to do so with the forces that are not being supported by the same government. and with seamless tanya piece, processes of the same time. so we can expect colombians to face r c. s. continuation insecurity be that is somehow not clear what we can expect.
3:23 am
that somehow we know exactly how difficult it can be for the next the specially for the next 6 months. one of the examples of that diversity that we've been talking about is, is vice president of course funds. you're marquez and she's a black single mother. what kind of significant role is she going to be playing in this? i think the most important message that we're seeing right now is representation. this is the 1st time, but many long and still they are being represented by the government. they have never felt so in the history of the, of the country. and this is why this is how you started. so important. as you mentioned, that you would not only play the role of by us by the vice president. but she also will be appointed as the ministry of inequality to try to publish quality. so she will sort of protect the view of how women will be treated. and the government will take a little bit of time about 6 months to be created. but because these take some bureaucracy
3:24 am
and some legal procedures to, to be able to play the role of a minister. however, i do believe that it is going to be very important because she's very much a woman that has a fight. and that has sort of experience herself, what is being a be part of the conflict. she was a victim of that conflict. i'm one of the most important people in defending the environment and in the funding party. so heard all the will be definitely very important. and she will also play, put some pressure on file, but for himself to be to try to be more progressive to not overcome those sort of conversations defender but rather to keep the left and be more progressive as he promised to do. so when he was running for president us a campaign in the campaign, rather than actually what we can expect to see him are really interesting to get your thoughts in the savannah and we appreciate your time and thank you very much
3:25 am

3:27 am
demand work and bread, a more stable life? no more. i got you. the image were part of the 10000000 argentines who work in the informal sector, which is why on st. koreatown or day, were joining with all other social movements to ask for peace, bread, land, housing, and workload. a lot more. i thought a lot of the bread as recyclers, we noticed that everything is more expensive. nothing today is worth what it used to be. the country is crippled with debt. the government has had 3 economy ministers in a month, increasingly frustrated. many ordinary argentines are forced to seek solutions wherever they can then find the routers, era one osiris, ukraine skews russia of, again shelling, europe's largest nuclear power plant. in supper this year, the head of the u. anatomic watchdogs warned. the damage to the plant could lead to a nuclear disaster or fell. grossey says,
3:28 am
the should be restraint around the site. keep says, russian forces damage 3 radiation sensors on saturday night. at least one workers been injured. the nuclear plant was captured by russian forces in march, but ukrainian technicians are running it. john henders got more from cave. the company that owns that plant, a ukrainian company says a nuclear disaster was narrowly averted when it was hit just today. that what was hit with an area with spent nuclear fuel rods, which are left in the open air to cool off. well, they're radioactive. and so that area was struck but apparently not breached. so no disaster day, but the head of the i a a says that he's very concerned about the situation there. he would like to send in an international team to secure that facility, which as you mentioned, was controlled by the russians behind the russian lines, but operated by ukrainians who have been ordered to continue operating the plant
3:29 am
essentially at gunpoint. so it's a really dicey situation there, as you said, showed today, a worker was wounded and the cavity says it was pure luck that something really major didn't happen when it was struck today. the interesting thing here is that we really don't know who struck it. the president of ukraine validity, lansky says that it was russia. he wants an international investigation and he wants tougher sanctions on russia because this threatened to be a nuclear disaster, not just for ukraine, but for all of europe. the problem is getting people in there and trying to get the permission of the russians to actually do that. so it's a particularly dicey situation with no end in sight in a country where in turnover we've had a nuclear disaster before frances sweating, its force heat wave of the summer while struggling to cope with his words drunk tone, record temperatures are expected to hit 37 degrees celsius in the south west. many
