4:32 am
because of the rise in oil and gas prices. but if you take a closer look, you will see not o him is equal as immune ceases with russian oil is a political hot potato right? now on the skip this on demand for oil from other sources is growing rapidly because people are worried about getting burned by russian oil smith up and put a dish. many countries want to drop prussian oil. germany plans to stop in ports by the end of the year. the e u is negotiating for that too. and the u. s. as pulling out as western democracies withdrawal as bullies. what does that mean for russia? come to just sell its oil to china. guns and inky in huntsville tool. sons is crushes entire energy infrastructure was built around 5 decades ago in the soviet era for its main markets in europe. the debit dingle dusty visa vision and

aggie marked and saw the entire network as land the pipelines the are mostly directed. wes, it as in egg units, is stella and pipelines, tendency to novice no escalate? of course, there are pipelines, the transport, oil and gas to asian markets like the eastern siberia, pacific ocean pipeline, east siberia, pacific ocean pipeline, warned it as well. demons and fast us di, comments, but the capacity of the eastern infrastructure is enough to replace what will be lost in exports to europe dropped off entirely in the exporter and in, in, not a whole part from the big patient. transporting oil by ship is also problematic because shipbuilders and insurance companies don't want tallies with putin either on the journey is longer and more expensive because really big tank is. com, passed through the suez canal. but tank as can be used to dodge sanctions. mendez said, see it's guns, are what you see quite often are tanker is leaving russia with russian oil,
4:34 am
which appears in the statistics as russia exporting oil to steve told us, oh, it's wilson export here to my son already. but what often happens is that these tankers just sail around the world, waiting for orders and o m martin, or they might ship the oil out on to the ocean, but then transfer it to another ship is of design of the emitter way of passing under the sanctions radar or sailing under it. i was even selling oil directly from ship to ship in international waters. is a ploy to disguise the origin of the oil and to evade sanctioned russia's economy has suffered sanctions before. after the annexation of crimea in 2014. this time g, d, p could fall by 10 percent that could have wind repercussions. the biggest problem is the lack of impose miss alice smith. this is not everything that
4:35 am
comes in from western countries can and will be replaced by china and even china doesn't produce everything that europe in the u. s. produce the deal was i understood. that means the russian economy will face significance shortages spare parts for airplanes, for example, and technology for the oil industry. digital infrastructure is also affected. russian needs of foreign qana to expand its 5 g network. could that be china? does this yet? so does the huawei isn't signing any new contractors kind? it's unclear whether huawei will withdraw completely or just reduce its activities . and what is the 1st a, c, a r. so at the moment these activities are sort of on hold and russia activity in and else ice could eat and that will cause massive delays to the 5 g roll out c put so many young russians no longer see prospects for themselves. the well educated,

in particular on packing their bags, it's estimated that $50000.00 i t experts have already left the country on the poconos, it is from on this forecast from a russian association says that in april along another 100000 i t experts will leave on for us and ran the brain missile called brain drain is massive, and it's not just in the i t sector and i t long. so in the long term, the russian economy will take a serious hit lot. putin's won't. chest still appears well stocked full now. now the war in ukraine has also caused enormous disruptions to global commerce, including the oldest trade route and the world the silk road. first, a quick look back at history, back in a 2nd century b. c. up until the middle ages, the silk road was the most important, transferred route, spanning continent connecting china to europe, silk, spices, firs and porcelain,
4:37 am
were transported in caravans on the 6400 kilometer root. the journey took 2 years that he likes to market and bu, cora, both in modern day was becca. stan flourished along the silk road, but eventually trading shifted towards the seas because shipping goods across water was more efficient. but about a decade ago, china announced plans to revive the ancient silk road trade route with its landmark bell and road infrastructure initiative. our next report looks at how russia's invasion of ukraine is threatening china's ambitious new silk road. at the moment cargo ships are having to make long detours. russian ports are being shunned as our russian airports. western cargo planes are having to cover much longer stretches to avoid russian airspace here. things can still be transported directly related to so growth is still in operation. the route between europe's
4:38 am
biggest inland port induce book and china's economic centers is part of china as belt and road initiative. the new silk road. it's 11000 kilometer rail root carries some 200000 containers annually and partially crosses through russian territory for china and the e u. it's an important project and for that reason has been largely spared from sanctions. you also, siobhan, is in law by russian railroads have been put under sanctions to the extent that no one in europe can buy or trade russian state owned rail bonds. will doubtless, on what using russian rail or fulfilling existing transport contracts is not prohibited or under sanctions. of in the commission has made it clear that there were land root between china in europe is also in european interests. of course that could change at any time. here, everything has already changed the ukrainian port of mar, you, paul, has been completely destroyed before the war. it was an important export hub.
4:39 am
ukraine originally had 3 big ports. the crimean city of sylvester boy was annexed in 2014 by russia. mar, you poor has been devastated in the latest invasion. and odessa is under russian bombardment. the ports are vital for transporting grain. before the invasion. ukraine supplied food for 400000000 people. 10 times the number of its own population production has dropped because of the warm and exporting grain has become more difficult. what was once transported by ship now has to be moved by rail. the problem there obviously is finding enough box cars or great knowledge for both haulage ability to take the the volumes that used to go out. i share the cost on at least double that to the silk road. the project hasn't been derailed yet,
4:40 am
but it's future is uncertain. it runs through russia, which is alarming client shipments are down like 30 percent, skipped out. it also has a lot of hesitancy at the moment about transporting goods, 10000 kilometers to putin's empire. again, butts, county office, that's understandable if the issue is not so much with the boycott. it's more about avoiding contact with russia right now. the avoiding transit through the country. my middle, the logistics companies are having to find alternatives. do sport is currently planning to switch to what's known as the middle corridor. so i my law, we need to unload twice as far from near to cross the black sea. and the caspian sea is the free trial runs, are now up and running under real conditions. but one problem
4:41 am
cannot be solved. the route takes longer. when's life other is in that's like, you know, using the northern route. we're looking at $13.00 to $18.00 days to reach china, depending on the exact destination. easier to july, the southern bypass will take longer term to remain competitive. we're aiming for $25.00 to $30.00 days are also compared to see freight, which takes 8 weeks. that's still very fast, i'd like to leave off with walton m m o there smith, whether in the cargo shipping air or trains winters, the war is presenting logistics companies with challenges. ultimately, it's consumers worldwide, who will pay now, staying with supply chains over and $1.00 of the world fashioned capital's new york city itself, retailers are preparing to reveal their supply chains. the big apple fashion industry has long been criticized for exploiting low wage workers abroad. and for
4:42 am
not taking its environmental impacts seriously. a new law in new york will give shoppers information on how their clothes remade. but will that be enough to persuade them to change their buying habits? ah, these seamstresses work in one of the most expensive cities in the world. here in new york city, they're making uniforms for us soldiers and fashion for international brands. we believe in making in the usa, although some people may think that we're a little crazy fur fur pushing that it's i think, part of our dna, gabriela ferrara, is c o of ferrara, manufacturing. she inherited the textile company from her parents. they founded it here in the garment district in the heart of manhattan, 35 years ago. fast fashion is all about manufacturing and selling as cheaply as
4:43 am
possible, and with no regard for the environment or work or welfare. but that's not gabrielle ferrara's approach. she believes the global fashion industry needs to be more aware of its environmental and social impacted having a global supply chain is really important. ah, having global standards is also equally as important. and so what we kind of forgot to do when we shifted all the labor over overseas is make sure that we maintained our qualities of how business is operate. and make sure that we're baking in that cost of operating at that appropriate level into the cost of the good sold. not, i'm hiding it and potentially creating dangerous situations for workers because they're not the factories aren't getting paid enough. gabrielle ferraro, supports the fashioned sustainability and social accountability act, a ground breaking new bill in new york that aims to force the fashion industry to
4:44 am
be more responsible. the idea is that market forces will also proven incentive to new york is one of the world's main fashion markets. before the pandemic, the sectors revenue totaled some $100000000000.00 a year. under the bill, fashion companies will have to disclose their supply chains and their social and environmental impact. if they don't comply with these transparency standards, they face fines of up to 2 percent of their global revenue. the law will also apply to all the major fashion brands and online retailers. many of the manufacturers and countries like bangladesh, where labor costs are low, and we're environmental, protections, and work or welfare are often disregarded. calona actor campaigns for the rights of textile workers in bangladesh. a enormous thing because they enjoy to be so high. when you talk about the business stake been done,
4:45 am
most was the bigger slice of the so what do i, you know, workers and ending up with is in year one of them working in upsets me. hello e ross at a few says more with their closing that can issue a worker's voluntary efforts to improve ethical standards and the fashion industry have proved an effective component after is pinning her hopes on the new legislation. oh edy, what tell me old law in one only one voice out of this law that is a provision for financial housing. i'm guessing maybe y'all will make this brass. i fully accountable and if they are not meet the close is they will be placed under this low back in new york city. everything and designer maria cornejo studio has been made sustainably when corny,
4:46 am
who started out 25 years ago. it was hard to source sustainable fabric, but times have changed. as more commercial companies are becoming more aware of sustainability that the fabric people that type sales people are making more of an effort to supply. and to come up with solutions for recycle fabrics and eco fab regularly maria corny house customers can afford sustainable fashion higher price tag. few items here cost less than $450.00. but courtney ho, thanks cheaper stores also need to bring about a change of thinking, i think is the motto. little by little shifting the perspective i'm thinking okay, well maybe i'm not going to buy 6 present jays this year, but i'm just going to buy one that i really love on is going to be eco. and people realizing that it's only to own that largely to be the right things. new york's
4:47 am
fashion bill requires companies to disclose supply chain and manufacturing information, but will ultimately leave it up to consumers to decide with their wallets. and that won't be enough, says i assure barren blot she works for re make an initiative that aims to and harmful practices in the fashion industry. and so i really do think government has to do its job. you know, so this idea that we put this data out in the public domain and market forces especially and customers. are you the purchasing power to course? correct, i think is a fallacy. you know, what we need is regulation that level the playing field. so that industry gone profit from modern day slavery from negative externalities when it comes to the climate from human rights abuses. gabrielle ferrara also wants to see the fashion industry smarten of its act. she hopes the new bill in new york will help usher in a new era. there's a huge opportunity now for integrating automation and new technology and
4:48 am
robots. what this does is it allows you to have operators trained on using that equipment, but are able to produce and keep their wage at a living wage level. i think that's where the industry is going, where in a lot of industries they're starting to onshore with the advancements in automation, gabrielle ferrara, is busy expanding her production capacities in new york. alongside this, her company is developing new technologies designed to ensure it remains sustainable into the future. here in germany, most of the clothing on people's backs to day was made in asia. 7.8000000000 euros worth was imported from china alone and 2021. just behind is the much smaller nation bangladesh. with 6500000000 narrows all it by turkey. and india. 9 years ago, a textile factory collapsed and the bang with as she capital dhaka. the devastating
