7:30 am
w business be on a, here's a closer look at the project. our mission. to analyze the fight for market dominant versus way, given that head with the w business beyond the news . hello and welcome to focus on europe. it is good to have you with us. we're more than half a year now into russia's war on ukraine and for president vladimir putin. things have not worked out as planned. his troops are now on the defensive. ukrainian army is reporting new games in territories in the east and south of the country. and to supply the kremlin with a fresh batch of soldiers to send to the front line,
7:31 am
who has ordered a quote unquote partial mobilization of forces in russia. this would mean hundreds of thousands of additional soldiers, enough put in hopes to turn the tide of war in his favor. but forcing more russians into military service with some going directly to the front lines is an appalling prospect for many citizens. including mikhail, a young man living in moscow. he does not want to fight against ukraine and he is resisting being drafted as a reservist. he's one of the many people protesting pollutants policies in his homeland. and mikhail does not plan to leave the country quietly. ah, no to war these protesters shout, hundreds of demonstrators have taken to the streets of moscow to protest hooton's partial mobilization. many have been arrested by authorities and brought to police stations on greece. among them was mia yields again a 29 year old musician and pod,
7:32 am
castor. he says he spent 6 hours in custody. the police tried to force him to find a draft notice or to join the army in as a with me. are you yet a shoulder walk on the thongs, air, bowling escalate? i was brought to another room. ha boys, there were several men there. ha dois too were policeman days and 2 were in plain closing him. they locked the door from the inside and started telling me i was a nobody. and as i part of the clunk, there's not that in a clue which a boy put me down rather showed me around and even quickly at elk i behind dasa most of his i had to get through that was but i didn't the, and i'll post, i made it out of the station without signing anything. i think our corporate up our call now i'll just have to wait and see what happens as a dash of it. and this since his detention mikhail has been staying with a friend, he hardly goes out in order to avoid the police. he could be called up under the partial mobilization order because he completed his military service. but he says
7:33 am
he's been against the war since the very beginning. yep. newkirk oil open. there's no way that i'll be drafted from our bill is i'd rather be sent to a penal colony link to the war habits of colonial chem, the lionel. mike, you rush us military has suffered huge losses in ukraine. moscow is banking on fresh troops. officially, authorities have called up 300000 men with military experience. but critics say the draft is more universal and arbitrary, especially in provincial regions. men without basic training are scared of being drafted like this warehouse worker or disco, nauseous, livingstone, they're telling us just go, i don't care whether we ever combine criticizes. you was just cannon fodder. what's meant to call us mobilization is to stuck up on cannon fodder. and wind with quantity from since the quality isn't there, which is podcast or mikhail and moscow says he doesn't want to flee abroad though.
7:34 am
even if staying in russia means taking a big risk or page of the opera or kirk of another thing that i feel something like an inner drive. anything else that i would say? yeah, actual, i don't like what's happening here shot and i want to fight back. thaw on story this. i seen sir, is still high as the east property, as if nobody stays here in russia in life. and there'll be no one to change anything think i walked or next door he is marsden travaras is jealous. mikhail intends to keep taking to the streets to protest against hooton's more even if he and fellow demonstrators could face up to 15 years in prison for doing so. the war against ukraine has also become an economic one, primarily between russia on the one side and the west on the other. russia has stopped, or at least very severely restricted gas deliveries to europe. and the e u has announced it will block most russian oil imports by the end of 2022. but
7:35 am
just off the coast of greece, tinker, owners appear to be shipping higher volumes of russian oil than before. the war began. its day break off the coast of the peloponnesian peninsula. fedora has shown toyota is out with his reporters, united colleagues, a network of investigative journalists. they're heading to the laconia and gulf to document ship to ship or s t s transfers of russian oil out in international water . so we as that about as united, i like being a drug of is that isn't about sds, which is that they're on sort of oil fuzzy fuels from one that blanket blown away after the bay ross and envisioned ukraine a pony and gulf for weeks. most of the tankers carrying russian oil arrive via the black sea. the u has closed its ports to russian merchant ships as part of it,
7:36 am
sanctions packaged with them. and by the end of the year, it's set to completely banned the import of russian oil. as they approached the tanker, the investigative journalists see signs that a 1st oil transfer is imminent. one tanker is already dropped down those huge blue mike vendors. they prevent the 2 tankers from bumping into each other during the transfer to other tankers are already in the middle of an oil transfer. the one on the right is taking on the russian oil and belongs to a greek shipping company. according to the journalists, greek ship owners in particular, have been making money off of russian oil, also without disclosing its origins. very said high bulk says what a gardening received. the greek c boners, waits a all the local channels stated. somebody saying that the war is bad. the russian war in ukraine is bother bother. they seem weak dangerously. they
7:37 am
a continue at transferring eh, dealing with a russ 100, wasn't. she was all over the world. the ship owner say these operations aren't illegal since they take place in international waters. we asked the union of greek ship owners for an interview, but they refused. opposition. politicians don't think the ship owners are doing anything wrong and they say greece can't pursue sanctioned violations outside of it . see borders the you would have to take action off the oil for a mule. she had snowed going degrees. it's going to hold you to her. so it's a problem to the hans ofa united. so for now, huge quantities of crude oil continue to be transferred between tankers. off the southern tip of the peloponnesian, that makes environmentalist, your ghost dow tacos nervous. and not just because this region is
7:38 am
a breeding ground for sea turtles will will much the better thought that all were afraid of a tanker spell and all that would contaminate this whole area with oil connected the therapy, we live off of tourism nature in history. we don't have any industry or significant agriculture a, so an oil spill would destroy everything we have is woke up, die in it. oh yes, said the bill, you're here on a vacation. rental owner also expresses concern about a possible oil spill. and what that would mean for her business bulk at that a mouthful, although might be off by vacation rentals only just got finished in this past year and he's had fantasy born. and at the time when we're struggling with damage from law, the journalists therefore keep up their investigation. the transfers continue after
