bullet stop, bear with me, let me putin says russia wont stop pumping gas to europe through ukraine, adding the ease decision to ditch long term contracts was a cost, a mistake for within the you itself, all lines emerges. some member states are increasingly thing, read over the eas determination to go green silencing the santa marine faces potential trial, daring to criticize president bonds. afghan pull out that despite another offset, being hailed the hero 2 years ago for attacking trump and pulling the plug. friends threatens to cut the power supplies to the united kingdom amid a post brags route over fishing rights. ah,
3:01 pm
the very good evening. thanks for joining me. anaki international visit abuse in says that the you may the costly mistake when they decided to ditch long term gas contract seal. so stress that brussels preferred method of gas trading overlooks some of its crucial characteristics. namely, it cannot be easily stored like other commodities. other interesting points also came out of a cabinet meeting. president putin held earlier today, and he's a guest on of joined me in the studio area to discuss developments. well, i guess the whole point of this cabinet meeting, at least to a large extent, was to outline russia's stance in this crisis, letterman couldn't talk to russia's energy minister and basically gave very clear instruction as to the country's actions and how russia will navigate this well this
3:02 pm
market crisis, because as of now you've seen the gas prices on the market and well as of now again, it looks like the winter is going to be very, very costly to the end of the line. european consume him. so the russian president, what he did, he called on the minister to seed through that russia remains a loyal partner and doesn't make things any more difficult and pod than they already are. and that the gas prom rushes will national gas export in company that gas from remains a faithful partner as well and follows the contractual obligations strictly prevalent. broom. as she touched his guest, prom believes that it would be more profitable for it to pay a fine to ukraine and increase the gas volume pumping through the new systems. but there's no need for that. there's more pressure in the pipe, less c o 2 emissions into the atmosphere. everything turns out cheaper. and at $3000000000.00 a year, it is necessary to fully comply with the contractual obligations for the transit of
3:03 pm
gas through ukraine. although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange that there is no need to buy anyone in a difficult position, including ukraine, despite the difficulties in relations. second, there's no need to undermine gas problems. confidence is an absolute, reliable partner in all respects. so i think maybe understandably, with gas prices rocketing up, some people in the west, the pointing fingers at russia and, and basically suggestion is that they're exploiting as it's getting colder. and that price gouging than that, they're trying to just milk as for will they can get what put enough to say rather, well, he didn't say anything about that per se. but he but the facts that he has presented the show that according to the russian officials, according to the rush, president reality could not have been further from well from the, from this that the truth is very, very different. according to the russian president, our gas from has not only just stuck to its contractual obligations, but in fact it has increased the volume of gas. it is right now pumping to europe
3:04 pm
through ukraine, and it did not have to do it. there's no obligation on the russian gas exporting john gas from to do so. so, so far rush, i'd say has been very understanding and very client oriented. if i may say so. but again, of latimer put a stress that the aunt running a charity here close to was be to be to self speculative demand and excitement in europe. you propose stock trading. it can be done, but of course this can and should be done not in a spot in europe, but on an exchange in st. petersburg. but in general, exchange trading is not very effective because it carries a lot of risks. is not a watch shorts and ties or a car or even oil that can be produced and stored anywhere. gas is not sold like that on the market rush. it is a, a reliable supplier of gas. it stays by the word of its contracts. the problem being,
3:05 pm
it seems that they're just on in of contracts. people haven't contracted into long term gas supplies. so obviously russia is not going to want to be made out of the bud guy here. what can you do with regards the pricing? well, man, you're absolutely right, and the thing is i, the european lawmakers might have shot themselves in the foot here. and well, of conceptually nuclear, the wallets of the end of the line consumers of ordinary europeans. so here's, here's the thing about natural gas. it's not oil, you can just, you know, get it one time stored in a barrel until you needed, and then you will access it. no, it doesn't work like that. you can't store natural gas. so what the european lawmakers came up with, they decided that they would switch from contractual from contractual trade when they receive a gas steadily throughout the year. at the current market price, they decided that they would be buying the gas of the market and they would be, would be doing so in the summer when the demand is very low. so it's essentially
3:06 pm
dirt cheap. but they would only ask for the, for gas in physical, you're physically receive it in the winter when the well, obviously need this gas. but what the didn't well add into this equation is the fact that the simple pipeline infrastructure is simply not robust enough. it is too old and dated in ukraine. so gas from, even if it wanted it simply can't squeeze this much natural gas in such a short period of time. so little or make as they were hoping that russia would be able to pack all this gas that you know, a year long supply of gas into, you know, the winter months. and it simply doesn't work this way. and of course, the north stream to project would have hell to because the infrastructure is much new and they can put more pressure into the, into the pipes. but well, nordstrom to has been long opposed for political reasons, including by ukraine and poland. well, with a quote with ukraine, the irony is, well, is beyond comprehension here. so, so far, again,
3:07 pm
russia has been making these steps, increasing the volume. and, you know, vladimir putin has been very understanding and he's been saying that, well, we will do everything in our power, but it has to be beneficial to both the buy and the seller. and so it's really unclear as to how many more steps unreciprocated russia will take and is ready to take. the natural gas price in europe are swords to an all time record is now nearly 6 times as high as it was back in the spring. but the continent on cost for a major energy crunch and laid bare internal divisions within the block over brussels green policies. what is peter oliver explains while prices are as high as they are on the commodities market? this isn't so much going to trickle down to consumers as perhaps these prices are gonna fall upon homeowners from a more domestic home users form a great height to what we've heard from the european commission president ursula found a lion is that she recognizes that there are major problems that we're facing right
3:08 pm
now and problems that are coming down the pipe further along, but says that in the long term, it's renewable energy that are going to keep energy prices low across europe. i think we have to be very clear that the gas prices are skyrocketing and her, but the renewables, the prices have decreased over the last 2 years and are stable. so fast is very clear that with energy in the long term, it is important to invest in renewables. that gives us stable prices and more independence because gas is important. 90 percent of the gas is important to the european union, the renewables. we are the master without plans being dismissed out of hand by hunger as prime minister victor or bon his country just assigned a new deal with russia to import gas into hungry for the next 15 years. or bonds blamed these problems on the european commission saying they have far too many
3:09 pm
restrictions in place. far too much regulation. and that is what's causing the issues when it comes to buying gas. you must change policy because partly partly the reason why the prices are up is the 4th of the, of the commission. so we have to choose some regulations. otherwise, everybody do suffer. the problem for hunger is other the new regulations of greenfield, which is an invite expectation or left owner owners and car owners or the u energy commissioner has warned that prices will most likely continue to rise throughout the winter and won't see any respite until the spring of 2022, just how high prices rise may well come down to something as fickle as the weather . if it's a particularly cold winter, we could well see prices soaring, higher and higher. and what we've also seen though is a number of european countries coming together and saying things half the change, france paying grease, the czech republic and romania, all their finance ministers signed a joint statement saying that there needs to be
3:10 pm
a complete overhaul of the way energy is purchased in europe, that isn't going to be a short term solution though. perhaps in the long term it may change something. it's not gonna change energy bills or this coming winter. what we're also seeing is the european union is saying that they're going to investigate claims that russia is behind attempts to manipulate the gas price that they've been trying to drive up prices. this is something that's been fundamentally denied by the kremlin, the spokesperson for the russian government saying that russian suppliers are living up to the very letter of contracts that have been signed. we insist that russia is playing no role in what is happening on the european gas market that could not happen. russia has fulfilled and will continue to fulfill to the letter all of its obligations on existing contracts. there is one way to get more gas into europe, and that's through the nod stream to gas pipeline, not huge infrastructure projects. construction was completed this summer. however,
3:11 pm
it's still awaiting the green light in terms of all of the certification and approvals from various agencies before it can start providing energy. once that does get the approval that it's needed, while it could provide as much as 55000000 cubic meters of russian gas to europe every single year, that's around enough to power $27000000.00 european homes. earlier i spoke with german economist and publisher. i could, hama about europe's energy crisis. what it is, would it be perfect for. busy the german and energy policy to change to a green policy, but it wouldn't suit all the other european partners because they have a completely different thoughts on germany and their energy supply. for example, the french and especially the polish want to keep the right mailing position or
3:12 pm
germany, they don't want germany to be energy sufficient or energy independent with russian gas. they would like to be to keep the hand on the energy supply for germany. so. busy with the north screen to pipeline the energy supply would be a would be secured. and that's why these european partners don't want us. republicans have accused the military of double standards over a marine who's facing potential challenges for criticizing the by the ministrations pull out from afghanistan. but it's in stark contrast to when another officer was hailed as a hero for standing up to the trumpet, ministration. ne kelly moving takes a closer look at both those cases. $2000000.00 from over $27000.00 different donors. that's how strongly people are feeling. the case of lieutenant colonel
3:13 pm
sheller, he's facing potential criminal charges over criticizing commanders over the withdrawal from afghanistan. now his hearing has been delayed until next week, but his family is not very optimistic or we have been told to prepare that it could be a long prison term. sheller was an active duty u. s. marine, whose frustration over the bungled retreat from cobble lead to making videos, bashing biden, and the pentagon brass that quickly went viral. people are upset because their senior leaders let them down and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability are saying we messed this up. i'm not saying we've got to be in the, in afghanistan forever, but i am say, did any of you throw your rank on the table to say, hey, it's a bad idea to evacuate bob graham airfield, the strategic air berries before we evacuate? everyone. i am submitting charges against general mckenzie for his bad assumptions, not because i've been did, but because the senior leader to be held accountable to the same standard as us.
3:14 pm
he's now accused of breaking for laws, though there are not formal charges yet. now sheller is not the 1st military man to raise a voice about issues. lieutenant colonel alexander vin damon was on active duty when he 1st spoke up against the pentagon. brass, he testified at trumps impeachment proceedings as a pentagon whistleblower, he claim the donald trump had made a quid pro quo with the president of ukraine. he was anointed by mainstream media and the democrats as a st. this guy 0. this guy is a patriot. and one of these 2 men, the president and lieutenant colonel whitman, devoted his life to duty and honor. right matters what an extraordinary statement from an immigrant who served this country proudly his entire life. now the answers from the white house quickly turned evasive when they faced some tough questions about parallels present vancover tenant colonel alexander vin minute hero,
3:15 pm
for speaking out against his commander, she even has plenty capitol hill in uniform. so how is this different, especially since you just said the president welcomes the candor handy fights of his military advisors? does the president also feel with sheller hero? i dont have all the details on these circumstances. i understand that can be frustrating to you. um, but we will work to get you an answer on republicans or speaking up saying that they see a double standard if you speak out against the democratic president who get thrown in the brig. but if you're doing something against a republican president, you are lord of the hero. this is double standard. lieutenant colonel vinland was celebrated by media while of tenant girls sheller is in prison for demanding accountability on the disastrous withdrawal. both challenged leadership. one was treated as a hero and the other punished. i remember when military leadership wasn't an
3:16 pm
oxymoron, it's no wonder they can see the obvious coming any more. the best bureau cuts on the absolute worst wolf, i says, of the ones that get promoted and make the decisions. military leaders who criticize donald trump gotta talk, show appearances and book deals treated almost like heroes. while one who just criticized biden is facing a hearing and a potentially long term spell behind bars. the dental seeing that we see be an exercise here today. it's a very dangerous precedent. that's concord gets the dull standard by democrats, 1st of all that, but also manifested tremendously by the mass media there tends to be predominantly less leaning in you know, very much in the cochran b o. the democratic part of anything that was an antique trump was hailed. and so it's not surprising that anything republican, as the chase has been a min was, was treated with kid gloves now. and there's consequence,
3:17 pm
or he gets off scott frame having no late classified information. the political landscape has certainly evolved from what it was a year ago. democrats are no longer celebrating those with the courage to speak up against those in power. being a hero isn't so much about what you do, but who you do it against. caleb mauppin, r t new york. it's going out to a developing story coming out of the state of texas. were suspects been detained after high school shooting in arlington? the la full people injured suspecting questions, an 18 year old black man. the shooting reported to happened after a fight between students on person received amount of injury and of the 3 required hospital treatment. still had fully france threatened to cut power supplies to the u. k. that amended post briggs row about fishing rights. that story, i'm more after the back.
3:18 pm
ah, ah, join me every thursday on the alex, simon, sure. and i'll be speaking to guess when the world politics, sport, business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. i'm in the see. oh, the internet. the allows old boons rollers on much was going to invite everybody's lloyd, that wasn't a glitch. that was the feature that the people who does owens the ins and that is all about it as a feature. oh well it shows the wrong one. i just don't hold any world yet to shape out
3:19 pm
disdain to come to the african and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. oh, well, come back, friends is threatening to cut troughs channel electricity supplies to the k. this is over a post for exit fishing dispute. well, they show the davis get reports now from paris on a fight that threatens to append a series of crucial agreements between the european allies. france could be about to slam the brakes on the relationship with you. k, as this raw rover fishing rights is pretty much imploding. last week the u. k refused the majority of licenses that came from french,
3:20 pm
smaller fishing vessels to fish in it's wooded, only approved 12 out of 47. and as a result of that, paris is furious. it's now saying the bilateral agreements that cover everything from security, border control to trade in energy are now under threat because paris says that london simply cannot keep its commitments under the brakes. it deal. bruton does not respect its own signature month after month. the u. k. presents new conditions and delays given definite if licenses this cannot be tolerated. we know the u. k is facing this unprecedented energy crisis, just like pretty much all of the countries across continental europe. and it could be a back to get even worse because francis said that it could in the next few days decide to turn off electricity supplies to the u. k. well, how significant is that pretty darn significant. according to you, k governments own papers in july of this year,
3:21 pm
france supplies almost half of the energy for electricity for the u. k. to this really could see the lights being turned out. what do you mean? it boss buquet depends on our energy exports. they think they can live alone will also beating up on your own. and given that it doesn't work, the engage an aggressive one. upmanship, we negotiate a commie nicely 9 months and all shots are not legal, don't and add to this pretty much perfect storm, a threats that are coming directly from the french fishermen themselves. now we know that boss johnson has already warned the u. k. that the supply issues in the lead up to christmas. that with energy, that, with petro, that's also with products in stores and now french fishermen the same. you know, what, if you do not a, our fishing license is we are going to block the ports will make sure that there will be no imports and no exports between europe and the u. k, which really could add to boris johnson, woes and those are threats that the u. k. should also take pretty seriously,
3:22 pm
given that we know that the french one, they like to protest and to they have already been tense stand offs in the last year over this issue over fishing licenses. now the u. k, for its part says look, we've done nothing wrong. in fact, we're keeping to our commitments and we're keeping the agreement over fishing licenses. we have granted 98 percent of the license applications from the u boats to fish in our waters. so we do not accept that we are not abided by traded cooperation agreement. we have been extremely generous and the french folks in, in, on a small category of bows and claim. and we have behaved, unreasonably, i think is not really a fair reflection of the efforts we have made france as well as pulling out the big guns with those threats over energy. and bilateral trades has also asked for the european commission to take a much tougher stance when it comes to the u. k. over this and other issues. the u commission though, isn't sort of really wanting to get into the murky waters over this particular spot
3:23 pm
. it's saying what it's going to do is to ask the u. k. can explain its methodology and it will sort of go from there or limp from there. the reality is though, in this pros, bags it will as the issue surrounding that are beginning to bite. there is a real threat coming from france at the moment, and it does seem as if forest johnson has some really tough decisions to make. he is essentially caught between the devil and the deep blue sea. meanwhile, their attentions evolving france on the other side of the world as well after a senior delegation from paris arrived in taiwan for an official visit, much to the younger beijing relations between taiwan and china. curly, the most str and in decades, john of is taiwan, has his own territory and opposes taipei having any diplomatic exchanges with any foreign countries. france, though remains defiant about the visit french sentences as members of

a french state institution should of course observe this principle and refrain from any form of official contact with the taiwanese authorities. french parliamentarians pretty decide their travel on their conduct. of a contentious visits comes despite china's recent offer to paris for increased the co operation in defense spacing, made the move amid the diplomatic fall lamps, course foster alias, reason rejection, have a submarine deal with france in favor of one with the u. s. in u. k. before a meeting between e e leaders on tuesday prism mattress questioned the reliability of america's protection of europe. we spoke to professor of the paris business school, who says francis relationship with china is at risk. the current china french relation is close to historic heights. ah, it is through many years of trust and good businesses between the 2 country once damage it will take a very long time to repair the relationship. so if france moves one
