6:00 pm
gas from canada in which is would this be helpful or is the focus very clearly on green hydrogen? now kenneth is a major oil and gas producer in the world. but because of our commitment to fight climate change, we are working very, very hard to de carbonized and develop other sources of energy that we can rely on. and that we can share with the world. what russia's invasion of ukraine has done as 2 impacts. one in on the global energy situation in the short term. it has made it imperative that friends and allies of canada like germany in europe reduced their reliance on russian oil and gas. but in the medium and long term, it means the world needs to accelerate its
6:01 pm
ending, if it's dependency on oil and gas in general. so we are in a situation in the short term where we will do what we can to contribute to the global supply of energy by increasing our capacities in the short term and explore ways to see if it makes sense to export l n g. and if there's a business case for it to export l, n g directly to europe. and that's something that you can make conversations going on between businesses in canada and in, in germany. but in the medium term and long term canada can and will position itself to be a key supplier of energy to the world in a net 0 economy. and that means investments and hydrogen, it means more investments in critical minerals. so we can be
6:02 pm
a reliable partner on that. it means investments in a range of solutions from renewables to nuclear, to arrange of things in the short term. we are very much looking at what we can do because in the medium term in long term, we are accelerating our commitment to d. carbon is ation to fight in climate change and to ensuring the good jobs, including good jobs in the energy sector across this country. that will be providing in a clean way what the world needs electricity from the renewables and hydrogen green. hydrogen will be important for the economy of the future. and this is nothing that is far away. it's happening very, very soon. germany has decided to go this way. and so if germany is one of the countries asking for natural gas for l n g, it is also a country where those that gets the request, know that this is
6:03 pm
a country that is on the direct way to transform its own economy. and so this is good to know that we are on the same path going out of the use of phosphate resources. why do we know that in between? there is a situation where we need different and new sources for supply on the 5th of touch design and to reiterated in german once again via we still have a long term strategy focusing on the idea that our economic model will be like to provide that we will use more hydrogen and in the jam industry as long ago take taken this decision. those who are traveling with me now have taken many decisions and will take even more decisions in the future, making them enabling them to become internationally competitive as companies in a c o. 2 in a carbon neutral economy. and that is the bases on which we did to up to him.
6:04 pm
he lender, now the cotton hot one can talk to other countries that have the opportunity as canada, as one of them. we talked to these countries in order to help us to tap new import as sources for alan g and about for linda, vice versa, for countries such as canada, it is also an opportunity. they also have ambitious goals when it comes to climate change. and it is important for them to know that for us to know that a country like canada also strives for a 2 carbon neutral economy. you didn't say yes or no to the question. if you're ready to export to germany, you said you were checking of this a business case. if it makes sense to export, can you please elaborate a little bit? what would be a would would define a business case to export gas to germany. canada already exports a lot of a lot of natural gas and oil the into global markets.
6:05 pm
so we are certainly aware that even as the world needs to d carbonized and get off fossil fuels out, there is a need right now to counter the energy crisis created by russia even as we accelerate moving forward. one of the challenges around l n g is the amount of investments required to build a infrastructures for that l. n g conversion plants are usually li placed close to the sources of l n g. and as we look at the possibility of l n g plants on the east coast able to ship directly to germany, we find ourselves a long way from the gas fields in western canada. it's doable. we have infrastructure around that. but we're looking very much at how we can best help. and right now our best capacity is to continue to contribute to the global market, to displace gas that then an energy that then germany and europe can,
6:06 pm
can locate from other sources. but we are looking at every possible different way to help out the german people and europeans in the short term as they face a real challenge this coming winter and next, as, as russia continues to squeeze off gas supply. asked question good morning, steve. chase globe male: i want to follow up on my colleagues questions, and my 1st question is for mr. shadow by invite the chancellor to answer as well. and given everything you've been saying about l n g, i'd like to ask you now as things stand in august 2022. what are the prospects for any l. n. g exports from quebec or the east coast to europe directly in the next 5 years. and the same for hydrocarbon, sorry, hydrogen. there are a number of potential projects including one in st. john's and some
6:07 pm
others that are on the books for which there has never been a strong business case. because of the distance from the gas fields because of the need to transport that gas over long distances before liquid cation . we are looking right now and companies are looking at whether or not the new context makes it a worthwhile business case to make those investments from the government standpoint, easing the processes. and because of the difficulty that, that germany is facing to make sure that we can move through regulatory hurdles more quickly is something we're willing to do. but there needs to be a business case that needs to make sense for germany to be receiving
6:08 pm
l n g directly from the east coast. those are discussions that are ongoing right now between our ministers, between various companies to see if indeed it makes sense. and hydrogen, sorry, hydrogen. we are moving forward on a range of investments around hydrogen and look forward to speaking about that more tomorrow. i'll see. actually no, at this time he, there are a number of projects in that have been under discussion for many years for which there's never yet been a business plan and economic plan that has been entirely logical and viable. all companies are now exploring whether a new context, new new germany in europe or highly level, or they have sufficiently change things to justify. going ahead with these projects, namely a project in new brunswick. wow. thank john. good morning. based on those discussions
6:09 pm
that we will assign how we can help enough ways likely, ellen, she canada project on the west coast. then the other project underway goes we children, she will see how we can deliver natural gas on the world markets at the same time as we can accelerate the process of g carbonized ation to obtain our greenhouse gases targets and ensure that canada as an energy producer is such just in a neutral way will not just repeat what he said just to give you the view we are working on that as a set on the vice. how we can got guests from other sources and canada would be a good prod, lenders field. and this is why our business people and the business people for canada are working in this question. that's dustin reported. on the other hand, we are working on the hydrogen field and i think this is
6:10 pm
a since the technologies we are discussing about are now known for a 100 years. but what we are doing at this time is scaling them to dimensions which really changed the world of industry and production globally. and there necessary to understand this. but the technological advantages to german industry has and those that the canadian industry has. and the research people have, it is necessary that we are now doing it and that we are doing this scaling, that we are really producing this huge masses of hydrogen, which we will need for the industry of the future. and this is where we are going on very concretely to morrow as so just in set and where we will go on in the next, a time to come for being more and more successful in dispute. my perspective is that this is like all these industrialization processes. spur in the past,
6:11 pm
it starts and it's starting slowly, but then there is the moment where from one day to the other, it's, there is a big scaling up happening. because so many different industries decided that they would change the way of products, put production with electrifying the processes and with using hydrogen as the guest to be used in the industrial process. and this is time we are living in, it will be a big industry in a very short time. and we all together assembled here will understand this as a part of our lives, not of those just of those, the future generations. that's happening now. and just to follow up question was about the natural gas industry in your meeting and in back in montreal, you're going to toronto, you're going to west coast newfoundland, but you're not going to calgary, which is the arguably the energy capital of canada. what do you say to the natural
6:12 pm
gas industry in canada, which says we have among the cleanest molecules, we can be a transition fuel. we have a role to play, they weren't even able to get a meeting with this with this visit. we know that canada has extraordinary expertise concentrated in alberta in energy production for the world . and natural gas will be an important part of it. even as we move towards hydrogen, we have to figure out how to de carbon eyes that process and ensure that we can supply the energy that not just germany and europe need. but that the world is going to need in the coming years. alberta, saskatchewan, newfoundland, and other places are going to be essential players in the net 0 economy, we're building in the expertise that oil and gas workers have brought to bear in that industry. over the past decades will be essential and how we build
6:13 pm
a net 0 future, not just for canada, but for the entire world. the solutions that we are building altogether as a country are ones that are going to be needed a few years from now. but also a few decades from now, and that is how canada is positioning itself. and that is how increasingly our energy industry is positioning itself as well in french as well. thank you. that to settle, i could, i can, you know, leave canada can so it will be a source of clean energy for the world. and in the st. carbonite, the expert canadian prime minister just trudeau, addressing the press there with german chance the olaf shoulds who's on a 3 day visit to canada, both addressing the topics of the war in ukraine as well as energy policy. the very rapidly changing energy policy of many countries as a result of this war and not only the war,
6:14 pm
the problems with climate change as well being addressed. they're just introducing that energy policy was being used as a weapon of war by russian president vladimir putin. with me here in the studio is the w. political correspondent. punters also be following that price for us. hands up. what you thought was most important from that press conference, just they're both the prime minister and the chancellor. both of these leaders were at pains to stress their plans for the future for a carbon neutral economy. both of them talked again and again about the needs to produce green hydrogen for canada to become a major supply of energy in this carbon neutral economy. who are very hard to say that they really tried hard to look to the future. and at the same time, one could feel how they were being put on the spots by the me,
6:15 pm
a put in by the facts that's gas from russia is no longer flowing in the way that it has been in the past that that has resulted in huge increases in prices across the world for carbon based fuels, both fuel, both gas and, and oil. so the dilemma that they were in was almost visible in the way they talked in their answers. they're always trying to say, well, the things that concern, natural gas matches that will be behind us in a year or 2. possibly there might not be a business case. just introduce said for exporting natural gas in liquid or 5 form from canada. but in the end, there is a lot of pressure from world markets, from the war in ukraine, and they need to respond to that. and so they are also talking about such issues as exporting natural gas from canada and possibly other forms of carbon based based
6:16 pm
energy. they both had an extremely important message for the people of ukraine, 6 months into this war. and the german chancellor, underlining again, that russia's aggression and war in ukraine is a threat to global peace. and also an important message from justin trudeau, the canadian prime minister, saying that we will not become accustomed to the horrors of war and that we will support the ukrainians for as long as it takes the chancellor also mentioning that this war has consequences for russia going through some of the sanctions that germany has imposed on roster and saying the roster is cut off, but roster is not cut off totally. germany is still dependent on russia, the gas and oil and continues to pay into roches war chest. we see an unprecedented amount of support coming from germany to,
6:17 pm
to help the ukrainians who are in a war zone. but how much is that? how progressive is offshore it's. that's how he was described by the canadian prime minister as being extremely important and progressive. progressive voice in the world. but how progressive is he? well, at the moment i think both of just introduce and all of shots are not able to put into action. the kinds of progressive policies are aiming for a carbon neutral economy that they have been planning together for several years. at the moment they are under this pressure from russia, and they're saying what's necessary now is to defend western democracies not to allow the situation ukraine and the pressure that's being putting on global markets for energy, but also global markets for food stuff for grants, for, for comb this not to allow that pressure to split the west to
6:18 pm
split economy a western democracies to allow putin too, as it were, as it were, agitate the populations in our countries against the governments. in these countries, there is an appeal to, to the people of the western democracies to stand behind this policies and alter the attempt to assure people in canada, people in germany, people in europe, that governments will try to lessen the impact of these crises in food prices crises in energy prices and stand together against russian aggression. just introduce saying that as you say, as long a text with those when quite as words a similar words and however long this, this aggression against your grand should continue, the west will continue to support your crime. and western governments will try to lessen the impact there, hoping that within 2 or 3 years,
6:19 pm
even if the war should continue, the dependence on russian carbon energy on russian oil and russian gas will be reduced to such an extent that that weapon, that point of pressure from the side of proven will no longer be so saudi felt in western countries as fun. thank you very much for the analysis. definitely challenging times and big challenges facing both late is there. well, it sounds mentioned it's been one month since the you went in turkey help broker deal that allows ukraine to ship grain to the rest of the world. it was meant to a vote of food crisis following roches invasion of ukraine and blockade of its ports. under the black sea grain initiative, ships can safely leave free ukrainian ports and use specially created car doors to sail to example. all vessels are then checked by turkish, ukrainian, russian, and you will inspect this before heading to their final destination. more than 20
6:20 pm
ships have left ukraine so far, carrying hundreds of thousands of tons of corn as well as wheat. so i being some of our products and fertilizer joining me now from is them bullies? i mean, i do like the united nations coordinator for the black sea grain initiative. welcome. how successful is this deal when? really only a handful of ships are making it out of ukraine each day. a good evening and thanks for inviting us to, to talk about this one month. and in fact, that have now been 39 ships out and they've carried over 700000. it's like 720000 tons of food. now that's not as much as we want to get to. but quite honestly, given the time span that we've been going through. i mean, in fact, the agreement to set this all up on the 22nd of july, the opening of this joint coordination center that i'm speaking to you from was on
6:21 pm
the 26th. and we managed to get procedures for inspections and the safe corridor movement by the 1st of august that was when the 1st ship was and it's rapidly built up since then. and so we've actually had 39 vessels move out of ukraine carrying the cargo. i've mentioned a 7 over 720000 tons of food and then we've had at the same time, 33 vessels go in to to pick up cargo some. so either when, when one thinks about it, it's not just the act of getting the ships out, we have to get them safely in and vessels or inspect it on their way in, inspected on the way out. and we've, we've, we've done the inspection. so you know, religiously and they are moving very well and you know, we kept 59 inspections. the number of inspections are low because some of those
6:22 pm
vessels that have mentioned going in there now loading and they'll be inspected on their way out. so i think overall, given that the conflict, i mean, you know, your previous speakers were talking about the impacts and effects of the war on the energy, but also the food crisis around the world. if you take into the circumstances under which we're implementing this agreement, i think it really is has been successful. and we're all know we see every day a bit of a build up on what we can do and not an inspections are becoming more efficient. the number of people that we can bring to bear on this, the number of ships that we can get moving are in the right trajectory. so it really is, i mean, you know, we have to remain optimistic. we have to remain realistic. but i think it has been in my view so far, success can i just ask you though,
6:23 pm
is there any capacity to scale up this project this deal any further than what has now been made possible? i think there is no, you know, i just mentioned it. we've learned a lot of lessons in these past few weeks on how we can get the inspections to be a little bit more efficient, how we can safely short on the maritime roads. how we can arrange that the time that the vessels spend waiting for inspection when they before they go in or when they come out to the lady before they continue. that voyage is one way. the 2nd thing is that i think is more and more ship owners and the insurance market sees that this is successful. we will get more ships ready and probably more efficient, best ones that might carry logic cargoes to join in this initiative. so
6:24 pm
there is scope to scalar, i think it's important to note though this initiative on its own is not going to be the panacea of the, at the end of the food crisis. we need to make sure that the foods and fertilizers from other areas, especially russia, are moving as well. that was, that's a separate initiative, but it to pull that all these things work together to, to get so. but the reason definitely room full scale. it is interesting, i'm and i've just come out of a meeting with the parties concerned and there is an appetite bio. i took it by ukraine by russia. certainly the when of all of us to find a way to increase and scan. well, that's great to hear you in coordinator for the black. see great initiative. i'm abdullah. thank you very much for being on d. w. news. thank you for having us. russian security services claim.
6:25 pm
ukraine is responsible for a car bombing in moscow. the attack killed daria davina, the daughter of an outspoken russian hardline nationalists said to be close to vladimir putin. both davina and her father publicly supported russia's war in ukraine. cave has denied any involvement, but an obscure russian group now says it was behind the attack. they call themselves the national republican army and non non groups. that is now claiming responsibility for the killing of daria to ganache from which in a video statement read by a former russian lawmaker, the group threatened to more attacks on people with connections to the kremlin. i see that there are doubts that an improvised movement could have carried out such a sophisticated attack. white seemed investigations over the death of dark doogie. now continue. the russian investigative committee says an explosive planet in the vehicle killed the 29 year old t. v commentator, the power of the explosion was evident parts of the toyota land cruiser was strewn
6:26 pm
across a large area. her father alexander duke in may however, have been the target of the attack. brush and state media said dougie was intending to travel in the vehicle. but changed his mind at the last minute. both dugeon and his daughter were on their way to moscow after they attended a cultural festival. not for 3 sion alexander duke is one of the staunchest allies of president vladimir putin in a far right philosopher in ortho he has been pushing for a revival of the russian empire. his daughter, although less known, was also a prominent member of the old jan nationalist movement supporting russia. invasion of ukraine on the piece were called for janice all ukrainians. she called to greg into some human race. she called for public public killings, all ukrainian prisoners of war, etc. so yeah, she's against daughter bought,
