the u. s. justice department says it's charged a man. it describes as a member of iran's revolutionary god. it accuses him of involvement in a plan to murder, a senior advisor to the trump administration. the target of the alleged assassination plot was the former national security adviser, john bolton, sharon per sofie, is now wanted by the fbi i in connection with the case barsky to say the scheme was probably in retaliation for the american strike in january of 2020. that kill the head of iran, a leak could force, cast them cilla money. we face a rising threat from authoritarian regimes who seek to reach beyond their own borders to commit acts of repression, including inside the united states. this is an especially appalling example of the government of iran, perpetrating, egregious acts of transnational violence in violation of us laws and our national
3:03 am
sovereignty. well, the iranian foreign ministry says the charges a baseless and politically motivated and accuses the u. s. making allegations without providing evidence. let's go live on skype to boston, massachusetts, and glen carl, who is former deputy national intelligence officer at trans national threats at the c. i a thank you for joining us. so all these allegations baseless. let's start with the details of this assassination plot. what exactly is sharon per sofie alleged to have done and how it did the alleged plot get uncovered? well, it seems that the are a rainy and stumbled into one of the car intelligence nets. i guess you could say of the, the i a fellow working in the iranian revolutionary guards apparently contacted an american or at least someone residence in united
3:04 am
states, initially asking him to quote, take photographs of prominent figures. i think it was and then inquired whether he would be a willing or knew of any one who could eliminate somebody. and the person that the revolutionary guard officer was interacting with was an f, b i. agents or source who then strong this out and was able to identify the person and some of the plans and dentist to indict, to follow and to stop. right. and so what do you think would the motivations for carrying out this alleged crime? well, my initial reaction was the same as i think most everyone has had who, who follows are indian and american. the foreign affairs at all is that this would be, was going to be the iranian,
3:05 am
or one of the iranian responses to the american killing of the revolutionary guards . chief silverman, a general, so romani, 2 years ago or 3 in lebanon. i think it was time. why target bolton, do you think and more details now coming out it's about might compare the former us next year state also being targeted? why them? yeah, well, i think the iranians were pretty clear at the time that the americans skills. so the money that they would, as i recall their wording, retaliate or respond at a time in place of and method of their own choosing. so to kill the president would be or try would be a lot higher, ranked and dramatically more provocative than someone in the cabinet. and
3:06 am
bolton was an security advisor, a known hawk on around very hostile to the iranian regime as. ready is my paul taylor who was secretary of state or possibly director, ca he was either he is both, i'm not sure which one of the time he was. and so that would seem to be a reasonable commensurate ranking kind of response to get someone hostile to a ran who would have been involved in the operation to have sodium on a killed and to make a statement short of actually charge and present. now, iran does not have an extradition treaty with united states, so realistically what all of the f b i's chances are catching this guy. well, the f b, i has a long memory and a long reach. so if the person is not
3:07 am
a fool that he won't travel to countries where the u. s. has exposition treaties, which are most countries and the f b, i can be patient. i still think that the odds are low, that the f b i will, will catch him or have him detained. but by going public justice department has, has made a point of saying, we have broken this up. we're on to what you're up to and don't doing anymore. and what do you make of the timing for their spec has? i mean, we've already had washington come out and say that they don't believe that these charges will affect talks, which are wrong on reviving the nuclear deal, which is now at a crucial stage. do you think that's a bit naive of them? well this is i think this is the most important issue and i'm glad you raised it because i immediately thought about this myself. ringback it's only 2 days ago,
3:08 am
i believe that the europeans, the americans near indians concluded it seems successfully the negotiations to return to or replace the around us nuclear agreement, which i would, i think i should express. a widely shared view is of critical importance and more important than one attempted assassination. that was broken up . one would hope that the various departments of u. s. government on such sensitive international relations issues would coordinate their actions. however, justices blind isms is supposed to be show and prides itself on carry out. it's mandate, it's work without having to bend to the needs of other departments,
3:09 am
which could be considered politics affecting the law. so i find personally the timing quite unfortunate. i'm glad at the they broke up a plot. i wish they could have waited a couple of days for the us and around the sign, the radiant agreement. and i would be surprised if the white house would be happy timing also where to get to talk to you, glen, call a former deputy national intelligence officer for the transnational at the c. i t cray. now where the affairs over the face of europe, some biggest nuclear power plant. let's take a look at the map russian forces in their separate his allies on control. all those areas you see and read. they include the zappa regent, nuclear plants, the ukrainians. a warning that the russians are preparing to connect the facility

with crimea, which they annexed in 2014. the plant has come under attack several times over the past week. uniquely watchdog is warning of a nuclear disaster. john henry pulls from keith in petro coat and says ukraine zappa region. nuclear plant faces a 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 iris go full, loosen the external power was oblong and that is dangerous because the vill burnwell block out mold as of it was thornton diesel generator. so the,
3:11 am
if they stop zone, you will have black mountain of 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 is endangering it, and they've issued a statement demanding that russia leave and turn over control to ukrainian authorities. the russians in turned 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 son nearby in battle scarred mc alive. residents have emerged from 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 gaze among the thousands of displaced people evacuating

3:13 am
the ease as if it's fully cut off from russian gases winter. it could cost members states economies as much as 1.5 percent of gdp. dominic cane reports from ballin. this coal being unloaded in the germantown of linebarger is from russia party. one of the last confinements to germany before the embargo took hold until recently, much of the energy used in germany came from russian fossil fuels. but now it's cold, his band, it's 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 coal fired power plants to the market. so this is a non, not long term solution. this is a solution for the next 3, maybe 4 years,
3:14 am
which is a significant contribution to solving the gas problem or the security of supply problem. but it is not sustainable long term perspective. the difficulties of the german government is that many of its leaders have 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. in the opinion, 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 in germany have technical abilities that are realistic and produce economically functioning jobs and economic value, which can help us free ourselves from this dependency and defend our own sovereignty cuts. 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,
3:15 am
the hood is aluminium foundry in salt towel where rising gas prices mean managers are having to change their working practices. i'm with this and that's what i hope to find. setting up a found, we like this hitting up, the furnace is very energy intensive. so shutting it down in the evening or not. 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 took longer to follow suit, but has 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. still ahead on al jazeera, better than expected economic figures, this the u. s. economy,
