jurors deliberate in the defamation case between pirates of the caribbean star, johnny depp, and his ex wife, the actress, amber heard ah hello, i am claire richardson. it's good to have you with us. the european union has handed down it's harshest measures yet to punish russia for its aggression in ukraine. after weeks of wrangling, the 27 member states meeting in brussels have agreed to ban most imports of russian oil. by the end of the year, hungary opposed a total embargo because it relies heavily on russian supplies. some e leaders say it was the best deal they could achieve. nick to our bonus, celebrating his 59th birthday at the e is summit here in brussels. the hungarian prime minister, however,
already got his presence in the wee hours when your leaders agreed on an embargo on russian oil. but with exemptions for hungary and others. each commission presidential de la funder line, still presented the war to down deal as a success. these sanctions are biting heart and are really, are destroying and that's the, the goal on the basis their financial basis of putting, leading this war and hitting heart the russian economy. the ear plans to cat only russian oil that's transported by c hungary, slovakia, and the czech republic can continue to receive oil by pipeline for now. according to you, officials in total 90 percent of fresh an oil imports, the blog will stop by year's end. even those countries that would have liked to see a stretch your embargo say it was most important to show unity. i was positively
surprised because our, when we went into the room and the signs were not that great, but everybody was very constructive. those expect that huge, a cat are fresh and gas as a next step are likely to be disappointed though from i come boom. it is lot easier to compensate for russian oil. we managed to solve technical problems with victor auburn over the gas, but gas is a different story. that's why gas embargo won't be part of the next sanctions package tend to amazon soaring energy prices all over the block were also addressed, as well as global food shortages jew as to the war in ukraine. the from fordham. pretty the responsibility for all the dangers that we are facing, like clearly with russia and it's president 50 to speak. that's why it's so important that we reinforce our efforts to make sure grain can be exported from ukraine. brooklyn e leaders will gather again in june on this occasion, ukraine's wish to join the european union is likely to top the agenda
in our correspondence in brussels next at santa reports that despite the compromises this deal represents a success for the european union. right? so the 6 package of sensors in particular is all embargo has the potential to deal a severe blow to the russian economy. we're, we're talking about 90 percent less oil going into the european union. and this could transit into 25 percent less revenue in the russian budget, according to some experts. so a huge chunk of money. now this is because we're not just talking about oil, but also petroleum products or a refined products. we're talking about diesel. we talked about a petrol cosmetics or production of that and, and asphalt and various other, other in other areas. so industry, these industries and russia will, are all targeted by the sanctions and some of them are liquid to be brought to their knees. ok, so this thinks around have sanctions,
clearly tough on russia about how tough can they potentially be for the e u. economy. will there be a substantial price to pay they're going to hurt the you economy. there's no, no, no doubt. and then this is also one of the reasons why this took so long, and this is also why one of the reasons probably why hungary, i did not partaken the final or agreement and stall the talks for so long that the prices the prices of oil have already gone up there, it's very sensitive and just to give you one of the examples on just an example of one of the member states, a germany has committed to phasing out oil coming from the russian pipeline by the end of the year. but still germany has refineries in the country that need to work with rational that need need to be supplied. there are a lot of jobs connected to it. so now there were discussions on whether or not you were to put these companies under state control and where to get the,
the alternative oil from. so every each and every member state apart from cost is also dealing with logistical issues here. so l ban at big news, but not the only topic on the agenda in brussels today. and what else came out of busy summits? so various other topics were discussed. one very important topic here is food security. now ukraine is also dub, the breadbasket of europe. it's one of the biggest producers of gray in the entire world, the biggest one of the biggest exporters, and due to the warn ukraine grain is stuck there. so we're talking about 20000000 tons that are stuck in the ports of ukraine at the moment because they're blocked by the russian military. now the you discussed on how to help with that situation because a lot of this grade goes to some of the poorest countries are in the world, some of the poorest countries in africa in the malise. a lot of it goes to goes to humanitarian aid also. so with the european union as was discussing now is implementing green lanes. trying to bring out this grain through the u on rail,
on land, not through the she put, bring in and to see ports in countries in the you and then putting them back in the supply chain there. they said the potential for huge international repercussions there, max standard for, as in brussels, thanks very much for that. and they can even closer look at these sanctions. and right now, by benjamin alice met a research associate at harvard university and former european energy security advisor at the west state department. thank you so much for taking the time to join us on the de leon is i want to get your thoughts 1st on how significantly this e, when bar go is likely to hit the russian economy. i think it's very significant, i think is the major step that had to be taken right now. couldn't be taken amy later and it really should have been taken sooner. this is a partial oil band. it's something that we were hoping to see really right out of the gate after the re invasion of ukraine by russia start at the end of february.
but i'm glad that we've seen this now and seen at least partial unity on this. but this is only one step, you know, this is, this is 2 thirds of the oil traffic that's going into the u. as i understand it, roughly all of the, the maritime trade of oil and oil products will be cut off. but there's still 2 major pipelines, one going to germany in one going to hungry in central and eastern europe, the response north and south that need to be cut off. and really we need to get to a point where the natural gas is, is ended as well, because every minute that, that you is using russian energy resources been paying into the russian economy is a minute that, that basically the regime is able to use these revenues to fund russia's war machine against democracy. and at this point, do you see a scenario in which those oil pipeline could also be cut off? well berlin and said that they have vowed that by the end of this year, the group but north pipeline will be, will be ended in terms of it's important for germany. and i think that that will
happen in part because poland has stepped up and his works, you know, basically between worse on berlin to have additional global resources from the global. ready oil market coming in the get don, poland terminal and through pollings domestic oil pipeline network to get to germany. so i think that's possible, i think unfortunately what we've seen from basically the, the pro pollutant and in pro authoritarian government in, in budapest with victor or bon that we don't see that's happening very soon. in fact, hungry has taken steps over the past several years that have gone, you know, retrograde to the rest of you energy diversification away from russian energy dependence to actually increase its energy in that case on natural gas. now, immediately after the you agreement, oil prices rose, that means russia may not be able to export as much, but on the other hand, will be earning a lot more for what it does exports. so how likely is that you didn't efforts to actually punish russia? we'll look, there is a 2 things that we have to look at. your number one is,
where are the absolute year old prices? this is the heavy crude, great of russia, that's basically been depressed since the start of the war we've seen. even today, i just checked the numbers a few minutes ago before coming on air. negative $34.00 with respect to the global brand price and the brake price. that is the price of oil that is baked into global economic metrics. so the longer that that price is depressed, even though it's trading lower. it can basically make a full oil cut off or embargo in the future more tenable. but in the shortest term, it's not going to do as much as we need to end the amount of, of revenues that are actually going to the regime i've worked with. international, i think some research group led by michael mcfall at stanford university and we were talking about the angle being this the oil embargo, but in the short term any interim steps to get to 0 need to be through you know, increase tariff rates, a in escrow account, so basically all of these sort of special payment plans to make sure that we can
actually cash in right now by these increased pricing engine and al schmidt research associate at harvard university. i wanna thank you again so much for taking the time to come on the show. thanks so much. has got to the situation in ukraine and the governor of lou hans in the east says russian force is now control most of the city of severity and ask one relief organisation estimates as many as 12000 civilians are tramp without food and power unable to flee because of the heavy fighting, russia is trying to seize the entire don bass region, already partially in separate hands since 2014. the sound of artillery echoes across the don bass. russian forces in sunny fields shelling already shattered towns and cities before moving troops in for combat. meeting with slovakia as president ukrainian president followed him as the lansky said, getting artillery from allies would make a crucial difference. must williams lunches in the east. it's difficult for us
because of the lack of appropriate weapons with if our mission to reclaim the region when it leads to tens of thousands of our people dying monthly. yeah, we will wait for the appropriate weapons to save as many of our people as we can. not the weapons are what will reclaim the territory, the wages are you and we'll do for you, of the sucking pieces. russia is pushing to seize the entire eastern region of don bass, which has already been partially in the hands of pro russian separatists since 2014 severe done yet. has seen widespread destruction. similar to what happened in the port city of mario pole. but ukrainian forces have had some small successes elsewhere in the east. more than a 1000 civilians were evacuated from russian controlled towns around hockey id than the most is in the my there's no power within no phone service,
no water. the echo, it's hard with guns. i can't contact my children. like my oldest daughter. there's no work and no money with the leadership in occupation regime is established to leave, introduce the rouble prices of changed the force people to sign agreement saying they'll cooperate yet me an idea. i hope i believe that i will return home to where i'm from and that it will be a part of ukraine up with almost as because i don't want to live under occupation. i just don't want to rosa. as the russian onslaught grinds on, the exit is continues. people fleeing the east with whatever they can carry, leaving behind homes, reduced to rubble and bodies buried hastily before leaving and rushes attempt to capture ukraine's capital chief at the start of the war ended in
failure. and how many of the cities residents worry moscow may be preparing for a 2nd assault, which could even more brutal. he toby, is rebecca medder is met up with a group of civilians getting ready to defend their homes as best they can. well, no o greater o, preparing for a 2nd onslaught. when russia tried to storm keith, these residents were on the back foot like katya, who felt helpless to defend herself and her city. what made me want to learn this even more as after everything, all the work crime started to get out. you know, i want to have an opportunity to protect myself. the actor says she owes everything to those who fought when she felt she could not. the only thing that allows me to do that, you know, allows me to leave, to choose life. is that somebody is choosing death like right in the same moment.
so they are choosing death for me to leave, you know, and that's just terrible because it's my people i know with fears growing that moscow, emboldened by gains in the east, could launch another attempt at taking the capital. these people say they won't be caught off guard again. volunteer instructor uri guides them through the basics. since the war broke out, hundreds of people have signed out to courses like this one. so many wanted to assist in the war effort, but didn't have the skills for combat. of course they are not yet soldiers completely, but at least for we have some some knowledge of the experience experience they feel they need for people here, the threat is existential. were so i'm a little we need to be prepared for everything was the threat of russians returning
will remain with me until the end of my life. i wouldn't say san slated america. there's always a chance. russians will come back. but according to the attitude i see from my friends, i don't think they stand a chance here. it's a recent build up of deliveries in troops. if ukraine's northern water has only added fuel to fears of another attack, re support they will. vicar were several thousands of troops or, or was a northern border there waiting for some border rule b, this order, given redondo, but re mazda read it. if there is to be a next time cartier says she will definitely fight. she and her fellow classmates fear a 2nd attempt on the capital could be even more brutal. and we'll take an even bigger ref it to defeat alice, bring you up to speed now with some of the other stories making news around the world's norway and hungary have confirmed their 1st monkey pox cases over 20 countries where the virus is not endemic. have now reported outbreaks. 300 cases
have been identified most in europe. monkey fox is usually confined to parts of africa. us president joe biden has met with new zealand prime minister just into our dern in washington, dc. gun violence and extremism dominated their talks following recent massive shootings in texas and new york. are darren successfully put for better gun control in her country after a white supremacist attack in 2019 and funerals, half of the gun for the victims of the school shooting in texas, where he gunmen killed in 19 children and 2 teachers a week ago. the tragedy in the town of u. faulty has rekindled the debate over gun control in the us and thousands of fans and relatives have turned out for the funeral of punjabi rapper c 2 who say vala in northern india. a 28 year old musician was shot dead while driving his car . authorities say the killing was linked to inter dang rivalry. for
each year, thousands of severely ill palestinians from the west bank are treated in israeli hospitals. often the only places offering the specialist doctors and the equipment that they need a getting there is a challenge. they are not allowed to drive through israeli checkpoints with their own cars. that's why israelis are volunteering to chauffeur them. with the road to recovery, organization or correspondent anya hawk joined one of their drivers, picking up a palestinian mother and her son at the re hon checkpoint in northern israel. ah 7 a. m. a few kilometers away from lucy han checkpoint. he also was installed. it's late for his appointment to pick up a penis tv and boy from a guy, but he was little. he's coming with his mother. i don't want them to wait a little bit on your sheila has met them before to day. they have made it through
the chick point quickly. it doesn't always school so smoothly of our her little jo. sheila wants to leave the chick point as soon as possible, as the security situation here can rapidly to unite and sobar hubble walk into a sun autumn. it's just 2 hours to get to the hospital yet to love it. and know it's at a higher than him of his it wouldn't work without him as, as a little lost a lot. there's no other way for us to get to the hospital. it all have and this is a much safer way to get there. a man i know hoarsely, and they have to go there every other week. as a baby adam had a brain tumor. there is no proper treatment for him in the west bank. that's why he and his mother have a special permit to enter israel. but they are not allowed to bring their own call with them and there's no public transportation. so how do we can for to take
a taxi from the checkpoint to the hospital, the cemetery at la, especially since my son has already been in treatment for 5 years, mid outage will will accompany you or sheila is driving them for free, just like the more than 2000 other volunteers who work for the organization road to recovery. your sheila gives rights twice a week. tea and dates included. so gra full marcia forgivable for, for, for the additional i can help from a piece by doing this with the palestinian children only know is radius as soldiers and police officers and mainly associate them with vala with this also probably more, but in me, william sure. the kids see in israeli, who looks after them. so during the rides they talk about their daily lives and their kid listeners are sometimes usually says, this leads to friendship and the rights have changed his perception of the people. on the other side of the checkpoint,
guide him up villa cuz of the suicide attacks. some israelis had the misconception that palestinians place no value on other people's lives. but i see mothers here who care about their children like they do everywhere for martha. once at the hospital, your show us mission for the days over another volunteer will pick up sub pass and adam when they have finished. but soon you are sure will again be waiting at a checkpoint to pick up other palestinian children and drive them to hospitals in israel and share in germany, police have reported a rise in sexual violence against minors. authorities estimate over 17000 children were the victims of sexual abuse in 2021 or more people are coming forward report cases. the actual number is believed to be much higher. 49 children ruthlessly exploited every day. victims of sexualized violence in germany,

a number of years. police secured $32.00 terabytes of data that helped them track another $72.00 suspects across germany. officials believe the suspect was in contact with another known pittafield that worked in the city of munster. the site marvellous shows once again that the perpetrators mainly exchange information via the international details of what the perpetrators are not alone online. the police are there to hold on. i can only say to all peter fall criminals. we may not get you to day, but one day will be at your door for jill. jim and police are making progress with child sexual abuse cases as a result of investment in better i. t technology and extra staff, the federal criminal police office says more investigations allow them to track down more suspects, does nothing. after the 1st case in north rine westphalia, we made a major investment to examine all the cases intensively, and in a timely manner that fits with employ. federal states anal said to be broadening
