well, donna ah ha, brewton says russia was still pumping gas to europe for ukraine, adding the use decisions of each long term contract for the costly mistake. while within the year itself, 4 lines, the manager, some members face are increasingly seeing where they are with ease, determination for go green us parents are speaking out against things like critical race theory and mask wary could now be investigated by the and beyond that the national school boards association claim the threats it's received on demand to domestic terror and silencing descend and

marine faces potential trial for daring to criticize president biden's african pull out despite and that office had been held as a hero 2 years ago for the tongue lashing trump ah, you won't even use announcing international i am una chicago. the thanks for joining us. president putin says b e you made it constantly. mistake wanted decided to teach long term gas contract . also stressing that brussel says preferred method of gas trading, or the looks at some of its crucial characteristics. that is, it can be easily stored like other commodities. other interesting points also came out of a cabinet meeting present. payton held earlier on today, i'll say, is a garage donna joined my colleague niel harvey in the studio to discuss developments. well, i guess the whole point of this cabinet meeting, at least, to
10:02 pm
a large extent, was to outline russia's stance in this crisis. lemme put and talk to russia's energy minister and basically gave very clear instruction as to the country's actions and how russia will navigate this while this market price has. 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 consumer. so the russian president, what he did, he called on the minister to see 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 restroom. as she touched the guest prom believes that it would be more profitable for it to pay
10:03 pm
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 transitive gas through ukraine. although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange, but there is no need to put anyone in a difficult position including ukraine, despite the difficulties in relations. second has no need to undermine gas poms. 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 the price gouging that, that they're trying to just milk, as for will they can get what to put enough to save other. well, he didn't say anything about that per se, but he, but the fact that he has presented the show that according to the russian officials,
10:04 pm
according to the russian didn't realize he could not have been further from well, from the this the if from this that the truth is very, very different, according to the russian president are well, 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 through ukraine. and it did not have to do it. there's no obligation on the russian gasser exporting giant 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 her stress that the aunt running a charity here close to was bitters 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
10:05 pm
a car or even oil that can be produced and stored anywhere. gas is not sold like that on the market problem being, it seems that they're just on in of contract. 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, conceptually nuked 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, say 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 be buying the gas of the market and they would be,
10:06 pm
would be doing so in the summer when the demand is very low. so it's essentially dirt cheap, but they would only ask for the, for gas in physical, you're physically receive it in the winter when the while 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 nodes for him to project would have hell to because the infrastructure is much newer and they can put more pressure into the, into the pipes. but well, nordstrom to has been long opposed for political reasons,
10:07 pm
including by ukraine and poland. well, with a quote with ukraine, the irony is, well, is beyond comprehension here. so, so far, again, 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 the so it's really unclear as to how many more steps and reciprocated russia will take and is ready to take lead him if he has also said that europe's carbon neutrality could come at russia's expense. but loony trellis, can you fight for cover neutrality? if the energy balance in europe, in this case in germany, in terms of cold generation, is twice as large as in russia, turns out you can, as someone else's expense, in this case, they're trying to do it at our expense at the expense of russia. but i hope we will build a dialogue taking into account the interests of all parties. it is right in the
10:08 pm
number i'm french and i know that the germans, i meeting a lot of see with 2. and so, yes, the thing that we need to do is close those called higher power in germany, and either go into gas or go into nuclear. we determined i do not want. so i mean the, and it's transition is a step by step process. and if we do not do this step by step protest, if we go back to dogma, then we end up in a property and in a climate disaster. if we want to go through energy transition, the price of energy will be higher and there is no way out of this. and so therefore, we really need to be transparent. these are the, are population of people that are citizen, that if we want to fight climate change, we need to put more money in this. and this is something that perhaps russia has forgotten or perhaps new, but didn't want to share with the people. and this is where we are here right now.
10:09 pm
so the natural gas price in europe has sought an all time record. it's now nearly 6 times as high as it was in the spring. it's put the continent on course of a major energy crunch and laid back internal divisions within the block of brussels . his green, paula says, as on his piece, 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 uses. form a great height. 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 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,
10:10 pm
but the renewables, the prices have decreased over the last years. and are stable so fast is very clear that with energy in the long term, and 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. victor o bonds blamed these problems on the european commission saying they have far too many restrictions in place. far too much regulation. and that is what's causing the issues when it comes to buying gas. do you must changes policy because partly partly the reason why the prices are up is the 4th of the of the commission. we have to choose some regulations. otherwise,
10:11 pm
everybody do suffer. the problem for hunger is either the new regulation of, of greenville, which is on direct taxation or left corner owners card on or the e. u. energy commissioner has warned that prices will most likely continue to rise throughout the winter. 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 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 of their finance ministers signed a joint statement saying that there needs to be 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
10:12 pm
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, it still awaiting the green light in terms of all of the certification and approvals from various agencies before it can stop providing energy. once that does get the approval that it's needed, while it could provide as much as 55000000000 cubic meters of russian gas to europe
10:13 pm
every single year, that's around enough to power $27000000.00 european homes. and ela was folks in german economy stands publisher. i get home about here a bit for. busy the german in 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, especially the polish, want to keep the like mailing position for germany. they don't want germany to be energy sufficient energy independence with russian gas. they would like to be to keep the hand on energy supply for germany. so with the north screen to pipeline, the energy supply would be
10:14 pm
a would be secured. and that's why these european partners don't want you ask parents advancing their frustration over curried rules and the teaching of critical race theory have been branded domestic terrorists by the school boards association organizations went straight to the top, sending an open letter to the biden administration. these acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials have increased. the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes for you to dare to try to smear parents as domestic terrorist just reflects just how tone death, school boards and school administrators become about the please of parents on behalf of their children, the u. s. attorney general wrote a letter to the n,
10:15 pm
v i n criminal attorneys announcing plans to convert what he called a disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation and threats of violence against school past now, but anti contributor lauren chan, things that many of the accusations in the borders letter have been blown out of proportion. the board's letter does site some specific incidents, but if you actually look at the video footage from those incidents, most of the quote violence that they site is actually things like parents refusing to wear masks at these meetings. a lot of what they side as actually being domestic terrorism or violence actually is just tantamount to some harsh words being said in terms of actual violence. though i believe there's only one or 2 specific incidents that were actually led to an arrest that were mentioned in that letter. i think trying to get the f b i involved at all, frankly, just reeks of political activism. instead of actually trying to put students 1st, and i think parents are completely justified in seeing this as an attack on their
10:16 pm
rights as parents, the parents aren't shutting up for now though for the same the attorney general has got a conflict of interest in this case what do they mean by the, the reason why the age is taking this letter from the school board association. so seriously is specifically because his daughter through marriage has ties to a firm that actually specializes in critical race theory, training or something akin to that. his family potentially might benefit financially from c r t actually being implemented in more and more schools throughout the country. how politicized a school life become these days seems like it's increasingly political. and there have been viral videos that have been leaked of students. sh filming their teacher is going on tirades against tromp systemic racism, america in general. we've even had teachers themselves posting to their social media accounts. i think a lot of parents have started to wake up that no, you cannot simply take for granted that in education, the public school system is the same as what was happening when we were younger. us
10:17 pm
republicans have a case the miniature of double standards around marine facing potential challenges for criticizing the bottle and ministrations. pull out, well, i'm gonna stop it in stock. contrast to another officer who was early hailed as a hero, for standing up to the trump administration unties. caleb moulton takes a closer look at the 2 cases. $2000000.00 from over $27000.00 different donors. that's how strongly people are feeling the case of lieutenant colonel 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
10:18 pm
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 saying, 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 dated, but because the senior leaders need to be held accountable to the same standard as us. 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 daemon 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
10:19 pm
and the democrats as a st. this guy's a hero. this guy is the patriot. 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. now the answers from the white house quickly turned evasive when they faced some tough questions about parallels person vancover 10 colonel alexander vin minute hero, for speaking out against his men, she even has to buy the capitol hill in uniform. so how is this different? especially since you just said the president welcomed candor and the advice of his military adviser. does the president also see with sheller hero? i don't 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 it. republicans are speaking up saying
10:20 pm
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're lauded a 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 oxymoron, it's no wonder they can't 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 got 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 going to stay in that we c p, an exercise here today. it's a very dangerous precedent escort or gets the standard by democrats, 1st of all it,
10:21 pm
but also manifested tremendously by the mass media tends to be predominantly, less leaning in you know, very much and pocket a, b, o, the democratic party, anything that was an antique trump, was hailed and so it's not surprising anything republican, this is the chase with minimum, lisa was treated with kid gloves now and as a consequence, or he or he gets off scott frame having o 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? kayla mopping r. t. new york new york's joint commission on public ethics as cited
10:22 pm
will launch, an in tanner inquiry into its approval of disgraced ex governor and her coma is both deal last year with $5000000.00. the commission has voted to approve the retention of independent counsel to conduct inquiry into the legal and procedural operations of the condition. tomo received scathing criticism this february, when it had transpired, or the new york authorities had massively under reporters, the number of covey related deaths in the states. nursing homes is also turned out that over 9000 patients were i prematurely sandbox to care facilities. leading to accusations that the authorities accelerate as the spread of the virus. and they say my mine, his memoir, american crisis leadership lessons from the curried 19th and tammy como shed what he calls his hon. one lessons in leadership, assistant director for voices for seniors. tracy,
10:23 pm
alina and i reports almost books, once again, it is a blood money book of lies, and it was written on the graves of over $16000.00 innocent senior citizens. and it's not only reason to write a book on how you conquered a pandemic in the middle of a pandemic. but it's still rate evil to actively omit jets from public health record to make money off of a book deal to my father's death may have been an inconvenient number that he left off the report to get a $5000000.00 book deal. but to me, my father was my whole world when the p m at 1st started and he was giving these reports and he was using the powerpoint slides. i was like, wow, he's actually doing a really good job in handling this. but now, given what we now know, it look, and i say, you know what? in the beginning when coven emerged in new york, she was telling us to go out,
10:24 pm
you know, don't panic, a panic is worse than the virus. and then at the last minute he panicked and he made really, really poor decisions. so i think that if he acted sooner, i'm going to go out on a limb here and say not only would we have a lot more people alive, but maybe we could have contained it in new york and it wouldn't have spread to the rest of the united states the rope 0 which allowed camo to profit from its sale was allegedly never put to a vote and the public ethics commission that's reporter lay according to several board members. and other prob, looking into whether the eggs governor use state funds to produce the book is ongoing, and he is tracy albino again, this whole entire investigation. it feels like one big show to me. know the ethics commission already allowed homo to keep the $5100000.00 he made off of his $1.00 money book allies. so frankly, i don't see the weight and having the ethics commission investigating sells. no,
10:25 pm
i want to try to be optimistic. and on its face, it's a small victory, and it's a step that browser that a lot earlier. but i'm a realist in a month encouraged by this move, our family members a for us really nursing home families. they're, they're dead, they're not coming back. so number one, he should apologize. number 2 is you give every said that he made up his book to his many, many victims, and number 3, what i hope and he won't voluntarily he do this, but i hope he ends up in prison. what he's done in the wake of the pandora pavers revelations, us lawmakers are ramping up f as to crank down on corruption new legislation. jobs they enables act is expected to be revealed on friday, is designed to make it harder for american gatekeepers to help corrupt foreign officials to hide that ill gotten gains on us soil. pandora papers review would be international, consult him of independent journalists. call an unprecedented amount of information

on owners of entities registered in tax havens. the include of a $300.00 politicians and public officials, as well as over a $130.00 forms. 1000000000 is from 9 to countries. but despite identifying over $1000000000.00 in us base trust, not a single american politician is named in the documents. the papers did however reveal the presence of tax havens in the us, including south dakota, which is the largest and a handful other you are states, such as florida, texas, and delaware. the leak also highlighted the war of british overseas territories, such as the british virgin islands as tax havens. the white house reiterated its commitments to tackling corruption during a press conference back in june. the u. s. government said it would place anti corruption at this sent over foreign policy with the intelligence community playing
10:27 pm
a key role. the work on that front in part remains to be seen, but they are included the director of national intelligence and central intelligence agency. the u. s. government has its own internal methods, but largely the way that corruption is exposed is through the work of investigative journalists and investigative. and jose, there are lines of assistance that have jump started investigatory journalism organizations. what comes to my mind most immediately as o, c, c r p, as well as foreign assistance that goes to and jose, ultimately that to investigative work on anti corruption as well. it's not the 1st time these high profile releases have contained possible irregularities. the organized crime and corruption reporting project is a consortium on when vessel gets of centers. media and journalists is one of the i, c. i trays main partners in 2019, expose the tri cut, laundromat, which russian politicians, oligarchs, and criminals, allegedly used to funnel billions of dollars. the o. c. c, r p name,
10:28 pm
numerous western banks that allegedly held loan to the money that hsbc was not initially mentioned in their report, although troika openly named the bank as a partner, investigative journalist, a kid, terry clarin. bog shared his thoughts with us. nice question to ask is, well, you know why, you know, why, why has the i c i, j a c p been released this data which he had doesn't include any of that. none is because this is what people in power in washington and maybe other centers of power with the wider us hedge, monique system, one, you know, you have one in the public domain. and if you look at the, the role of people and in the individuals and organizations as a pool, those legit, investigative media outlets. then why on earth would they torn rugby, apple cause, why would they bite on the feet or c, c o p alone? yeah. did they have the ford foundation? you the rocket rock solid? broadest foundation, the u. k. foreign office, your cia friends,
10:29 pm
national imbalance, democracy in the u. s. a. id, i mean, why on earth would they publish anything in the 1st place that was of discomfort or inconvenient for the governments and, you know, cause i governmental organizations, the fun, the answer is, is they would, they will absolutely absolutely know what they're not meant not meant to publish, well, they have to have to sit on both organizations have a consistent history of doing more of his eyes coming up next, announcing internationally, found documentary about lines and marshals finally ah, policy makers in the federal reserve bank and joe biden. the president thinks america is so freaking stupid, that they can make them believe that picking up a worthless shiny round object. and going hocus pocus over it magically turns it
10:30 pm
into a trillion dollars that they can deposit at the, at the federal reserve or the treasury to somehow mitigate that. $300000000.00 debt crisis. join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. i'll be speaking to guess with the world of politics, sport business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. mm . i see. oh the internet. the allows olu b programs and what was i to invite everybody's lloyd? that wasn't a glitch.
