1:12 pm
flight should go just to establish the principle that asylum seekers that come by the english channel on boats that they cannot expect to have their claims processed . here, but they can expect to be deported to ronda. so around 40 originally planned are only 7 or remain on that plane. that's because of an intense legal bar. so what were the most important points there? there were several legal battle. a bachelor's am gerhard. there was a coalition and there still is a coalition of charities and unions and they are still fighting ah, in front of the british chords. they're saying that this is says, generally the principal is not right. they're saying this doesn't comply with the human rights act and also they're arguing that rhonda is not a safe that country. and then there are also individual battles on behalf of asylum

1:14 pm
i is saying the labor position saying it's, it's something that's an british. however, the government is arguing that it's justified. they say, what's morally wrong, are the people smugglers who are taking people in a very dangerous way or helping them across the english channel. and for them, this is their main goal to stop this practice. so it, remind us again, these are people are, be removed to rwanda. why? rwanda said, the british government has struck a deal with a government of rhonda, they regard, run the as a safe that country and do run and government has agreed to take on are the claims of, of these people who are seeking asylum in the u. k. and if they are successful, they can arg stay in rwanda for, for up to 5 years. see, basically it's transporting people who originally wanted to come to the u. k. most of them have some sort of ties to the u. k. have family here. this is why they went

1:23 pm
return to russia and perform again. maybe even bring his kids as well, but only if it's a new russia one without who is it? i get well for more that we are now joined here in the studio by our fuller moscow correspondence. emily, sherwin, emily or you can't work in moscow, just spoke on work a mosque anymore because d, w is banned from reporting from russia. but how common has it become that arts as previously loved in russia and are being canceled by their fans in russia? we're quite, quite a lot of well known musicians, artist and so on, have come out against the war. and some of them really were a part of the establishment in russia. there's been various reactions of course, to their anti war stance, depending on, you know, whether their fans are critics of put in or are in favor of what the authorities are doing in ukraine. on, for example, we had and magnesia who represented russia at your vision. you might remember,
1:24 pm
some of her concerts were cancelled over. cr says a her criticism of the war. we had the comedian and presenter maxime gul can, who is really very well known in russia. he has been coming out on instagram with an anti war stance. he's left the country and he says that he's been facing a smear campaign on russian state tv. recently, within russia, the front man of a well known russian rock group and did a fair, mulish of choke said on stage that, you know, people shouldn't be kissing up to the president and that russia is not put in. and the audience cheered him. so his fans were clearly in favor, but then he got in trouble with the police, with the authorities. now, the citizen, others are posting videos with destruction that were pixel the destruction afflicted by the russian army on ukraine. why is there such a backlash still? i mean they're presenting the evidence. well, it's interesting for so i would say that these celebrities are using platforms like
1:25 pm
instagram or, you know, social media platforms in general to reach out to people, to kind of break through the propaganda bubble as it were. a lot of them have tens of thousands of fans, so they're really using that. but the propaganda on state tv is strong. for example, in the 1st period after the war, many, st. tv, the said tv televisions in general decided to actually cancel all entertainment programs. they were solely focusing on politics and we've seen, you know, we've heard mary's many stories as well, of ukrainian saying, i've been talking to my relatives back in russia about what's happening in ukraine, about the war. and they simply don't believe me because they believe state tv. now i understand there's a debate going on in russia's cultural circles in how far russian culture on the whole is now totally discredited or can explode. so there's actually a lot to pick there. so 1st of all, you might remember that some well known internationally well known russian
1:26 pm
musicians and artists have been and from playing abroad. so various, you know, oper houses, for example, came out and said that they don't want opera singer on 9, you know, and yet they are good to be performing because she didn't come out as vocally, as people thought she should have against putin. but within russia, as you mentioned, there also has been a discussion about whether russian culture can continue to exist at all. whether russian artist can continue to create new works of art, especially after the horrors the, the, the killings of innocent civilians that we saw in boucher when the russian army was leaving that suburb of kiev. and you know, for example, one well known film critic, antoine doyle in was talking about whether russian culture basically should just cease to exist overall. so that's part of a bigger discussion about collective guild. people have been been comparing the
1:27 pm
situation in russia now. and you know, to nazi germany and saying, what did germans do to get over their collective guilt? what did they do to continue to exist as a people, essentially? but the interesting thing, as well as that, there's been a backlash to that. so even vladimir putin talked about the fact that cancelling russian culture on the whole is wrong and reserving that thank you very much. and that's it from emily, me and the newest team. don't go away. up next. pickles, special secret goodness li. got facts, don't miss that. i'm glad i was in for a late lunch with,
