way into purse and for the rest while it stays lossy, drive a little in the cool side for new zealand there, but to plenty of settled weather here. now it hasn't been to settle recently into south korea. of course, with those dreadful floods. please to say the wet weather will slip a little further southwards as we go through a thursday. although we are still in with the chance of seeing some right, it's really gonna be friday before that wet weather. finally clear, wait and see hot temperatures. pick up 31 celsius therefore, so as a sun burst through, meanwhile, it turns rod one saddle for japan. ah, what's most important to me is talking to people understanding what they're going through. here it is here. we believe everyone has a story worth hearing. ah,
12:01 am
this is al jazeera oh, hello there, i'm dealing with donald. this is the, i'll just hear news. our live from london coming up. russia accused of risking a meltdown at ukraine's parisha nuclear plant. the mid claims it's trying to divert energy to crimea, lights out in spain, and air conditioning, turn dying, why? europe's commitment to costing energy use is meeting a qu, response. a member of iran's revolution regard is suspected of being part of a political form, a u. s. national security advisor, john bull, and once considered one of the safest places in latin america, a deadly crime wave grips chilly field by drug traffickers and organized crime. and in sports, it's official. the african super league has been launched. $24.00 of the continents best clubs will compete for
12:02 am
a $100000000.00 in prize money. ah! well welcome to the news hour. there are going fears over the fate of europe's biggest nuclear power station. the russian occupied zachary ship plant in southern ukraine has come under attack several times over the past week. ukraine's foreign ministry says a shell hitting an operational react, sir, could have the same impact as an atomic bomb. so average a has 6 react, is making europe's largest nuclear pound, capable of generating around a 5th of ukraine's electricity. and currently just 2 of those reactors are working, completed after the chernobyl disaster, the reactors are contained and robust buildings were built in fire. defense is meant to withstand a plane flying into them, but experts fear damage caused by military weapons could cause a radiation league, while a power line was also destroyed and wouldn't stace attack and ukraine's energy operate
12:03 am
. he says, in force isn't damaging power lines to ukraine's energy system so they can re orientate electricity to crimea, annexed by moscow back in 2014. while g 7 foreign ministers have demanded that russia hands back separation to ukraine. so ensure its safety, while the u. n. has demanded nuclear inspectors are allowed access. john henry reports are from keith in petro coach and says, ukraine's apparition, nuclear plant faces serious danger of radioactive meltdown. he says he believes the russian military occupying the plant is shelling it to disconnect it from the ukrainian power grid. and reconnect it to a power system in russian controlled crimea, taking all the power with it. they have already cut 3 of the 4 connections to the ukranian grid he says. and if they sever the 4th that poses a serious nuclear risk. is aries, go full,
12:04 am
loosen the external power was applaud. and it is dangerous because the willborn will blackout mold as a rule. bas thornton, diesel generator. so the, if they stop zone, you will have like melton of a nuclear coral reactors. he's asking for the plant to be declared a demilitarized zone monitored by the international atomic energy agency, out of control of the russian army. the foreign ministers of the g 7 group of industrialized nations agree. they say it's russia's presence of that plant that endangering it. and they've issued a statement demanding that russia leave and turn over control to ukrainian authorities. the russians in turn blame the ukrainians for putting the plant at risk by firing on the facility. britton's defense ministry predicts the invasion is about to enter a new phase with the heaviest, fighting shifting 350 kilometers to the frontline that stretches from zap arissa to her song. nearby in battle scarred mc alive. residents have emerged from
12:05 am
a 54 hour curfew. they've come out to queue up for water and food in a region that's been the target of russian bomb since the invasion began in february. ludmilla, steve goes among the thousands of displaced people evacuating ships sion cove, a village near her son. now under russian control, the daily bombardment is taking its toll credit for years in a certain budget. of course, people are afraid, but every one is hoping that they will not reach us and things will get better. but many houses in our village destroyed and people have died. there are a 150000 people in the city in the red cross is all need some kind of help. john henderson, al jazeera keith, what? well marianna, the sharon is a senior research associate with the projects on managing the ass. hm. at the harvard kennedy schools bell for sans and she joins me now from south berwick main in the united states and marianna, very warm. welcome to the program. thanks for being with us. what was we know about
12:06 am
the situation in the plant right now? i'm thinking about what kind of state it say and how it's being run day to day. well, julie, one of the things that we must keep in mind is that really the information that we have that's coming out of this parisha nuclear power plant. it's very difficult to corroborate. there are no independent observers, no 3rd party observe as a journalist that that could ascertain some of these claims. we have heard from the, through a court in who is the president of ukraine's nuclear operator. and that whole item of the elaborate plan that they personnel of does a produce a power plant was presented with by representatives from all thought the russian nuclear operator on this a legit switching of the powerpoint from the ukraine in power grid to the russian power grid. via crimea, and as he pointed out, it is the, it's a, it's
12:07 am
a very dangerous, it's not a reckless undertaking because it involves taking the, the plant off the upside electricity supply through the high voltage line, connected to crane and putting it on, you know, back up diesel generators for whatever indefinite period of time. we really don't know much more about the situation other than generally over the past of for so months and the power plant found itself occupied by russians. it was actively used as part of the military operation. it's in fact was turned into some kind of nuclear fortress and nuclear shield, or the russians are known to have deployed had the armor and even artillery pieces that have been records of the shelling of ukrainian positions and ukrainian towns civilian towns across the river from didn't nuclear power plant and of course
12:08 am
though, the cheap shots, right? ukrainians get out retaliates in return. so. so these are sort of disjointed pieces of information that we have. if indeed, the plan, the russian plan is to, to, to basically steal the power plant to a connected to its own grid than the damage to high voltage want lines. and these, you know, in simulations that ukrainians have been showing the plant. they in a way, make sense, right. they, they provide the, the pretext mariana that clinton cars for doing so in terms of the, the energy infrastructure in ukraine. what would removing the power from the grid if we agree that it's a toll possible by the legit plan? what situation would then that southern ukraine and in terms of, you know, its energy supply? well, as christian said,
12:09 am
that would involve supper in the last remaining high voltage line that's currently operating, putting a plant in the block out mode, and switching on the 20 or so diesel generators that are backup power supply that, that are supposed to, to work for maybe well, on few days, depending on how much diesel fuel is there to run them, not only to cool the nuclear reactors themselves, but also the spent fuel pools, of which there are several onside that also contain much radioactive material that needs to be cooled. and then that would entail essentially black out of southern ukraine, much of the territory that's now captured by russia. there's a put on august for some time until the plan could be allegedly reconnected through crimea to the russian grid. i don't really know what kind of grid infrastructure is in crimea,
12:10 am
whether that is technically possible. but one of the key questions we need to look into right now, what, what high voltage lines are there available for that for this task? but in essence, if it is feasible that that would entail a massive black out for some time, and then reconnecting the plan to the russian grid and gradually putting, bringing tricity back to those regions. you marino, when we talk about the threat of a major nuclear accident or even a, or chris treated, you know, major nuclear accident. i'm trying to use, you know, my language carefully. like how, how worried are the authorities that this could be sort of course if reality o authorities, i'm not sure but my colleagues that have been dealing with these issues for. busy decades issues of nuclear security and myself included,
12:11 am
i extremely worried about this. it is an unprecedented state of affairs where a large nuclear facility that contains, you know, a huge the under really large number of very radioactive fuel is now trapped within a war zone. and there's really no, no control, no way of monitoring the robust safety and security systems that are supposed to be in place. there. it's under military administration. the generals and the officers, the russian occupying force that are in charge there. it is safe to say they don't know much about running a nuclear power plant safely. so the staff that have to keep that land going is, is working under under duress, under really difficult conditions. and one wonders how, how they can carry out their, their tasks. and if there is an accident that might be caused by the cutoff
12:12 am
of electricity, the malfunctioning, of the cooling system, there might be some kind of meltdown. you know, whatever size that is. think about the relief work of the mitigate the task of mitigating those consequences. what we've learned during the, after the fukushima de accident is the value of quick response and mitigating the consequences of any any such accident. it is safe to assume that if anything happens as a bridge and no matter what scale the axis of relief, we're aid of, of any kind of technical assistance will be impaired by the fact that if it's in the middle of a war zone. so that might be an essentially a force multiplier for whatever constant adverse consequences might already ensue from nuclear accident. marianne of the share and there, and joining us. and mariana, thank you so much for joining us with your expertise. appreciate it. thank you.
12:13 am
thank you. well, as of wednesday, european union member states can no longer in port call from russia. it's part of the 5th sanctions package on law school to cope with the hard turn away from russian energy. you countries are now setting power consumption caps that before the war, russia supplied 40 percent of europe's gas. replacing that, just before the northern wind to though is nearly impossible. in july, you energy ministers agree to voluntary plan to cover their gas consumption by 15 percent starting in august. when you said it's fully cut off from russian gas this winter and could cause member states economies as much as one and a half percent of g. d, p dominant came, explains this coal being unloaded in the german town of line bah, is from russia party to one of the last consignments to germany before the e. u. embargo took hold. until recently, much of the energy used in germany came from russian fossil fuels. but now it's coal is banned,
12:14 am
its oil is soon to follow. and far less of its gas is being piped here than was planned. meaning across the country, much of industry is having to contemplate buying fossil fuels from elsewhere. i think there will be only a temporal return of the call from portland at to the market. so this is a not, not the long term solution is a certain solution for the next 3, maybe 4 years, which is a significant contribution to solving the gas problem or the security of supply problem. but it has not done sustainable long term perspective. the difficulties with the german government is that many of its leaders has spent much of their political lives looking to phase out fossil fuels. and yet they now find themselves having to buy them in on a short term basis. v as in v opinions, we see how dependent we are on energy imports from all over the world. and in this case, especially from russia, it's important to know that we and germany have technical abilities that are
12:15 am
realistic and produce economically functioning, jobs, and economic value, which can help us free ourselves from this dependency and defend our own sovereignty. upping his cuts verified, but saying that and doing that are 2 different things because very many power stations and industries have based their plans on an uninterrupted delivery of coal . and more often gas, such as here, the learners, aluminium foundry ins, all tal where rising gas prices mean managers are having to change their working practices. mama's visit as so anyway, i walked so far starting up a foundry, luckys hitting up the furnace is very energy intensive. so shutting it down in the evening or overnight and then hitting it up again in the morning, is crazily expensive? that's why we now either run it around the clock in 3 ships or shut it off completely. the company that runs this power station decided to get out of a dependency on russian coal. soon after the war and ukraine began. that country
12:16 am
took longer to follow suit, but have now done so as it must be said, has the e u. but getting out of dependence on russian gas is proving much more difficult. dominant cane al jazeera berlin in spain, there are plan black hasn't thermostat regulations, as part of voluntary consumption cuts. but local, say it's simply too hot to comply, the hardening has more it has been a sweltering summer in madrid. but as temperatures have sort, so to has the cost of fuel. so the spanish government has mandated that offices and stores cannot set their cooling system below 27 degrees celsius. in an area dependent on tourism locals are afraid, the heat wave an crack down on energy could scare visitors away. even if i guess if these filters are going to be impossible, because now we are at 18 degrees inside. if we go up to $27.00 degrees,
12:17 am
we're going to be sweating all day. we won't need to go to the gym the for just give out a lot of heat and the customers are going to complain. nobody's going to come in them. but the spanish government has already agreed with the other european union countries to cut dependency on russian gas by 15 percent by the end of the year. they will usually that either we have to comply with the agreements we have reached in brussels, fresh combustion, alimony spain also has a commitment of solidarity with the rest of european countries. each country is free to choose the way in which will meet the commitment to cut energy use. here in spain. that includes turning off the lights. yogato may perhaps are the measures need to be found because i don't know up to what point. turning off a shop window, display light is going to make much se burnett. shops have to turn off window lights after 10 pm. however, street lighting will not be affected. i know it ain't nobody lucky. why would
12:18 am
visitors come? because when you go out for a walk, what you want to see is joy soon. we won't have lights. so if you decide to come to here and everything is switched off a couple, you're going to ask yourself, what's the point? the measures will be reversed in winter when regulations will prohibit indoor areas not to be warmed above 27 degrees. leah harding al jazeera consumer prices in the us drop by a half percentage point from june to july, but inflation is still harming many families ability to feed themselves whilst jordan has this story on how one organization in baltimore, maryland is tackling the program. every family is going to get a bag just like this every day or this. baltimore food pantry fills, hundreds of bags with fresh groceries left over from supermarket that otherwise might have been dumped in the trash. restaurant delivery drivers then volunteer their time to take the bags to grateful residence x ray lee, i'm sorry,
12:19 am
and i've started you thin as a referral and it's been really helpful to have access to the 1st for these on a daily, for health purposes. this is all for that were rescued here. the pantries executive director says in the best of times, it's a challenge to meet the demand. rising prices have made it much harder. inflation is a tough pillar. i. when you think about inflation, what people don't see is the broader aspect of how it, it hurts these families. so right now, you know, a lot of families are having to juggle and do i pay my rent to? do i look for food, right? do i eat healthy? do i a jump? right. that puts wednesday's latest economic news in context. the consumer price index dropped from 9 point one percent in june to 8.5 percent in july. assign the federal reserves efforts to cut spending by raising interest rates may be working what was cheaper in july filling up with gas plane tickets,
12:20 am
clothing and used cars. but grocery prices rose 1.3 percent between june and july, and the increase was more than 13 percent in the past year. for families on limited incomes, the price rises are often unsustainable. a point the u. s. president acknowledged on wednesday through the global challenges we face is from the war in europe to disruption of supply chains and pandemic shut down, sir. in asia, we could trace additional headwinds in the months of head. our work is far from over, but 2 things should be clear. first, economic plan is working. the 2nd is building an economy that will reward work while investors on wall street drove stock prices up in approval. the potential for more shocks to the global economy and to you us consumers remains . what else we have going on? kristin naraine says it's all the more reason why he's trying to boost his pantries

12:39 am
