a dash of it and dash, since his detention mchale 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 he's been against the war since the very beginning, yet. mccoy open. there's no way that i'll be dressed at him, or that is, i'd rather be sent to a penal colony lynch of the war habits of colonial champion. the lionel much you will rush as 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. you are disconnect, just other stuff. they're telling us. just go are we had occur whether we ever combine criticizes, you was just cannon fodder. what's that to call this mobilization?
11:34 pm

11:35 pm
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 just off the coast of greece, tanker 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 as shown toyotas is out with his reporters, united colleagues, a network of investigative journalists. they're heading to the laconia gulf to document ship to ship or s t s transfers of russian oil out in international water . so we as good about as united a lot of being a drug of is that isn't about sds, which is the transport of oil for some fuels from one that blanket blown away. i've
11:36 pm
got a bay russian invisible ukraine, a well seen effect of god. a local is this transfers have been ag conducting in this area, which is a garden using online marine traffic tracking. the reporters have been logging these s t s transfers in the laconia and gulf for weeks. most of the tankers carrying russian oil arrive via the black sea. the e u has closed its ports to russian merchant ships as part of it, 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. when tanker is already dropped down, those huge blue mike vendors final, 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
11:37 pm
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 sad hypoxia, when a gardening visit, the greek ship owners waits a all in the local channels state. it's under saying that the war is bad. the russian war in ukraine his bod bother, they seem weak dangerously. they a continue transferring death dealing with a ross 100 plus years 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 e you would have to take action off the oil for
11:38 pm
a rule she had snowed going degrees. it's going to hold you to oh, so it sir. the problem to the hands 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 goes to dow tacos nervous and not just because this region is a breeding ground for sea turtles. well, most of that is not at all. we're afraid of a tanker spill and all that would contaminate this whole area with oil. can i get the therapy? we live off of tourism nature in history. we don't have any industry or significant agriculture. a still an oil spill with destroy everything we have is,
11:39 pm

11:40 pm
so the media avoided reporting on them. the journalists therefore keep up their investigation. the transfers continue after nightfall, indirectly pumping money into moscow's war chest. meanwhile over in britain, countless citizens pockets are getting emptier and emptier high inflation and high energy prices are ripping huge holes in many households budgets and more and more people in the u. k. are finding themselves no longer able to pay their gas or electricity bills. many feel abandoned by politicians like natasha and gary waterhouse, who fear the coming winter, lincolnshire in england's midlands. this is the village of morton, where karen natasha waterhouse left cancer surgery left natasha severely disabled.

a until recently natasha and gary supported the conservatives. but the party is deeply disappointed. they're not looking at the individual people who are like the lower classes, middle classes. they're the ones that come to suffer. the scribbling looks themselves and the not focusing on the true thing that's approaches the people of this country. people like natasha and gary waterhouse and hundreds of thousands of authors who have no idea how to get through this winter. the canary island of la palmer is also known as the east le bonita, but the huge volcanic eruption that began one year ago and lasted for 3 whole months has left parts of the beautiful island. a desolate lunar landscape, many lost their houses and their livelihoods. but the islanders loved their home and rather than despair there confronting the blackened landscape cautiously to

11:49 pm
high. ah, the seo to concentration as high as close to the ground, the firefighters explain this means children are especially at risk. yet the real risk is an outside. but inside buildings, residents are only allowed to enter for 2 to 3 hours to retreat belongings from their homes and businesses. and they need clearing from the fire department. we meet the technical director a few blocks away. the bomb was just, i don't book all it was with ya know, but when you had there for an hour and nothing happened was ineffective, but there are no health problem isn't on this. as his stomach was told, and that someone spent 24 hours there a lot of day and night, no one can guarantee they will be okay. with that on the threshold he, out of the 2nd. some locals referred to deserted puerto. now's as little chernobyl . there are thousands of vacant hotel rooms on the palm of west coast all off limits due to the gas these hotels might otherwise have had
11:50 pm
a good season. as a volcanic eruption has attracted a high number of tourists. no. the tours of the volcano region are in high demand and in the summer of 2022. the palmer actually surpass projected visitor numbers. but i would like, let's come to see the island on the ropes and brought it to our attention as it went up. it is a very different experience, a co, it's like walking on another planet will know, planet that only train guides are allowed to take tourists near the volcano as the area is still dangerous. even if no eruption is expected anytime soon. stavros millet ladies who monitors the volcano, you know, is that a little like a local state of dc? estella didn't visit vienna one up at all. and i'm going to pull you rice one reg. refactor is a terrains instability here from there in a book, or it cooled off quickly, which means that the ground is still in motion did not allow via if and the other
11:51 pm
gases in the volcanic cone office, in the cornel gate for not being amid, in a stable way hoist when a machinist levels can change and suddenly shoot up into the moon. plus the are the high temperatures you little to have. yep. and then what a bit of put us out us like further down on the makeshift road to the lava field. it's been a year since the eruption began, and many problems remain. the steady stream of tourists brings hope to the economy, at least and hope springs eternal as they say. in an unlikely turn of events, hope is also re emerging in a small town deep in the forest. the finland for lanka is home to fewer than 3000 people and its been dealing with a shrinking population. for years, the village seemed doomed. but now these 2 men, santeria and that was scurry, have taken that dark outlook and given it a kind of twist. both are self professed pessimists. yet instead of wallowing in
11:52 pm
that attitude, they choose to celebrate it. and their town, ah, this pub closed long ago. and all that's left of this shops inventory are 2 chairs. as you enter town, there's a sign that reads you are entering polanko. there's still time to turn around. ah, polanko is a small dining town in the middle of finland, with a remaining population of just $2400.00. most of whom are over 60 young people tend to move away from quite a long time. but these 2 are staying true to their home town. all scottie and sand, teddy of the local pessimist society. and it's their pessimism that's raised hopes for a new beginning. oh we are,
11:53 pm
we have accept the fact that we cannot read why, like it's not something we, you know, feel sad about it. we try to find the for me side of it. so didn't come. we can joke about people can laugh at who said, who's as the business you so b, like like this. yeah. why, why, why, why you gonna, why you couldn't smile, you are pistols. and it's precisely these 2 self professed pessimists who brought some cause for optimism to polanko. the pessimists. cafe does good business tourists buy t shirts and buttons with pessimistic messages in the shop. next door vehicle accepts out it together with friends, oscar. he also made self deprecating and ironic music videos about polanko. the 2 pessimists had brought a small town a cult following in finland in
11:54 pm
a week. it's funny, typical finish jamiracle for my life. i had been a very low time honored on a lot isn't t shirt says you're, i'm cross today. hello. and that's okay to make it a social security, just informed me that my pensions to be raised 3 percent to kayla. that's 2 whole more euros a month music. and like i said, yeah, cool. go the facts, speak against a bright future for the town. the population has dropped by over half since the 1980s. and every year it falls a bit more. the town still has its schools, day care centers and a retirement home. the question is, who still wants to live deep in the forests of finland? lake, but it's mayor says nature is precisely what makes poor long cuts so great. the pessimism campaign has only enhanced the popularity of his town. he's convinced that soon the population will start increasing again. now if it leaves that more
11:55 pm
and more people will want to move to areas, withers, christine nature, lots of room to live latin and we've got plenty of room and they need to be exact. we have one square kilometer per personally, so you don't have to worry about the neighbors that paula watching us 8 then make the bias and all retirement home la scotty and santa the actually insist that they're among the happiest people in polanko right now. and in the world, happiness report, the fins have been named the happiest people on earth for the 5th year in a row. i think the pessimism thing fits really well in the people don't expect a lot, so they are happy with laser. and if we truly had like very serious problems, maybe we wouldn't do fun, things like pessimism and put our time and effort to it may be research like do something else. mm. pessimism has become palinkas trademark, but will that preserve it from its demise?
11:56 pm
