what russia is, europe's biggest gal supplier on vladimir putin has said. the current shortage is partly done to the use own mistakes. he accused brussels of short sightedness for insisting on a switch from long term gas contract to the more immediate spot. treating the president also stress that moscow will keep to its obligations under existing contracts, a spruce ashatash. this cast from 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. there's more pressure in the pipe, less c o 2 emissions into the atmosphere. everything turns out cheaper and a $3000000000.00 a year, but there's no need for that. it is necessary to 40 comply with the contractual obligations for the transit of gas through ukraine, although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange. but there is no need to but any one in a difficult position, including ukraine, despite the difficulties in relations. second has no need to undermine gas prompts
7:04 am
confidence is an absolute reliable palm that in all respects it just to point out there, the new system, the president putin was referring to his nord stream to him major infrastructure project, which will deliver in gas under the baltic sea, from russia to germany. it's not complete. and the project operator has already started filing one section at with gas, but it still, it needs the final green light from germany on several countries are resisting the project fronting it a threat to energy security. undamaged ing for ukraine. moscow rejects those accusations, stating that the pipeline will only help europe, and that gas trumped it through ukraine will continue, will maintaining a trusted energy partnership between russia and europe as a key focus of an international gas for him now underway in st. petersburg, it is day 3 of the gathering on our correspondent elite. katrinka is there?
7:05 am
oh, look at all these complicated tubes, valves taps gas industry equipment. this has literally become a nightmare for energy officials. lately, natural gas prices in europe have been astonishing. governments across the region for a while now the previous st. petersburg, international gas form mostly grabbed the attention of the most important business figures and experts in the field this year. many more eyes are on the gas form and st. petersburg, as the understanding of the crucial role of natural gas in heating and industrial manufacturing in europe has head many decision makers, were in the midst of the worst energy crisis and decades. some of the world's richest countries are struggling and winter is coming. perhaps a cold winter as the forecasts are sang, just ahead of this form the russian president vladimir putin shared his views on
7:06 am
what he called mistakes in the european energy policies of the recent years. you just because you can just forget about the stable development of the oil, gas and cold industries. you can see what's happening in europe. this hysteria and confusion, the markets. why is because they don't take it seriously. so must speculating about climate change or there's underestimates in things, and they're those reducing investments and nick starts of industries. there should be a smooth transition in st. petersburg russians, top energy officials and the most senior management ad gas from russia's energy giant will be joined by the ceo's of the likes of unit per and winters hall. germany's energy behemoths and also the heads of the international gas union and also the world energy council. it will be up to them inevitably to tame the market . now, one of the solutions many in europe are currently counting on is the launching of north stream to the project as real hope for many major players in the industry.
7:07 am
but you may also remember that it used to have and actually still has many enemies, both in the region and also across the atlantic in america. it has the potential to undermine the interests of ukraine, poland, a number of other close partners or allies. they know. i have issued a fine against gas problem and 5 companies involved in the building of the north stream to gas pipeline was because one voice with bonds, the nostrils to pipeline is unacceptable and represents the danger for the whole of europe. european countries may not be so keen to continue to be dependent on natural gas imports from russia, but many here in saint petersburg understands that keeping russia as a trustworthy partner is very important to make sure that the crisis doesn't come back any time soon. ilia, for trend co, well europe's energy crunch house expos divisions within the over green policies.
7:08 am
the hungarian prime minister has blamed soaring cost summon, over alliance and renewables saying regulations should be changed. we discussed the issue with an energy analyst. believe if we, if we were aiming at the too high energy position or without being pragmatic and those are the kind of risks that you faced when you do say, if we want to go through an energy transition, the price of energy will be high. and there is no way out of this, and so therefore we really need to be transparent. these are be our population to be the people that are citizen at that if we want to fight climate change, we need to put more money in this. and this is something that perhaps presto has forgotten or perhaps new, but didn't want to share with the people. and this is where we are here right now. education authorities in the us are asking the government to use anti terror laws,
7:09 am
uninvolved the f. b. i against parents who protest against what their children are being taught on monday to, to where in the classroom, namely face most the national school boards association has sent 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 sneer parents as domestics. harris just reflects just how tone death, school boards and school administrators become about the please of parents on behalf of their children. yeah, that unfolds the u. s. attorney general as well. who has stepped in writing to the f. b. i and criminal attorneys to announced plans to come back what he calls
7:10 am
a disturbing spike and harassment, intimidation on threats of violence against school personnel. know my colleague niel harvey spoke with rti contributor lauren chin, who thinks that many of the accusations 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 cite is actually things like parents refusing to wear masks. oh, people come no, no, no you need to pay for about critical race theory, which is pretty was going to be picking who, how to hate each other. out of this was 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,
7:11 am
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 rights as parents, the parents aren't shutting up for now though for the same the attorney general is going to 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,
7:12 am
the public school system is the same as what was happening when we were younger. lauren chin recently dozens of parents launch campaigns against coven restrictions on the teaching of a subject called critical race theory. now let's say controversial school of thought. the places racism at the center of public life. it's led to angry protests and the targeting of school board officials her and accused of violating their children's rights. april chapman is a mother to 4 children in the state of georgia seas. many parents simply have enough in today's culture, it's the government think they they, they believe what is proper and right. and what should your children should be taught. and so parents are experiencing a very difficult time trying to in that change and their local communities as it relates to what's being caught in the government school. people are starting to wake up and they're starting to recognize that wait
7:13 am
a minute. this is not the public education system that i am familiar with or that i grew up in. and it's time for me to take my head of the fan and caught up, hey attention to what's going on. because they don't like what's being propagated and pushed and down frankly, it's downright indoctrination to what their children are experiencing when they go to school and they're supposed to be will learning violence is never acceptable. so if there are instances where parents are crossing the line and threats turn into physical violence, then absolutely those incidences should be handled on the basis of their own individual merit. but that's not what we see happening here. they're taking one or 2 isolated in some instances and trying to make it seem as if parents who are be humanly opposed to what's being caught to their children and a government school. former new york governor untrue cuomo is the focus of yet another investigation. this time from the states public ethics
7:14 am
commission over its own approval of his book on the pandemic. como, whose missteps are blamed for thousands of cobra debts, incur homes, is said to make $5000000.00 from the memoir. the daughter of one of those care home victims gave us her response to the commissions announcement. the commission has voted to approve the retention of independent counsel to conduct inquiry into the legal and procedural operations of the commission. this whole entire investigation feels like one big show to me. now the ethics commission already allowed homo to keep the $5100000.00 he made off of his blood money book of lies. so frankly, i don't see that point and having the ethics commission investigate themselves, i want to try to be optimistic. and on its face, it's a small victory, and it's a standard 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, their, their dad,
7:15 am
they're not coming back. so number one, he should apologize. number 2 is she give every cent that he made off 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, what cuomo spoke tail is just one of a series of scandals involving the former governor. he resigned in late august after numerous allegations of sexual misconduct. earlier in the pandemic. the governor was praised for his decisive action to prevent the spread of cobra. but in february it emerged that new york authorities had massively under reported debts in nursing homes. it turned out that over 9000 patients had been prematurely sent back to care facilities leading to masses of preventable infections. chrissy el reno again thinks cool, most lucrative book dillard's insult to injury. in the beginning, when coven emerged to new york, she was telling us to go out, you know,
7:16 am
don't panic, the panic is worse than the virus. and then at the last minute he panicked and he made really, really poor decisions. he hasn't been held accountable yet. his resignation as governor is not accountability. and that's nursing home. families not only want answers, but he needs to be held accountable. what he's done, he's destroyed our lives. hormones book, 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 convert a pandemic in the middle of a pandemic. but it's still rate evil. actively omit jets from public health and record to make money off of a book deal to my father's death may have been an inconvenient number that he left on the report to get a 5000000 dollar book deal. but to me, my father was my whole world and i had an rti,

7:20 am
a vengeance that was launched by the united states, as revenge for 911, and quickly morphed into something else. one of the most protracted conflicts in modern history, an exercise in a nation building before losing all lame and tylenol towards the end. neither the united states nor any of its allies still knew what it is that they hoped to achieve. here. the end result is that it was unanimously considered an abject failure. metallic banners is back in control and more absolutely than it was before the united states invaded afghanistan. and the question that we're hearing now in the halls of congress, in parliament, in europe, and in the press in there on television, internationally is, is who the we lame. we need to consider some uncomfortable truth that we did not fully comprehend the depth of corruption and poor leadership in nursing. arrange
7:21 am
that we do not grass a damaging effect of frequent and unexplained rotations by president ghani of his commanders. and that we fail to fully grasp that there was only so much for which and for home. many of the afghan forces would fight. this has been a 10 year bolt, i administration drawdown. not a 19 month or 19 day neo, these scandal is nowhere near over. the americans are calling it been ghazi on steroids, the republicans as well as ordinary americans that she, the end of the war is humiliating. for america, they want someone held responsible, the bible and miss administration, as was the pentagon, so far, they have done their best to absolve themselves of all accountability for what many americans again see as a catastrophe. they argue that the fault is with many american administrations that,
7:22 am
that preceded them. and that is ignoring the tremendous financial cost of the war. some that could have made the lives of americans and many of their allies at the taxpayers so much better and so much easier. ah ah ah, ah ah ah. of the wealthiest country in the history of the world. and yet we have the highest
7:23 am
child poverty rates of almost any country on earth from the perspective of a civilian. there is scott evidence here on the grounded of galveston of any of that money ever making its way here aside from half finished clinics in and broken roots testament to record breaking levels of corruption that, that so brilliant siphoned off into the bank accounts of corrupt officials into the pockets of private contractors, though the evidence of these billions being here is in the hands of the taliban. the guns that they wield stamped with made in america, the vehicles military vehicles left behind, industrial quantities. the taliban are of course jubilant. they have dismantled everything that the united states built here with human rights, the tolerance,
7:24 am
the democratic institutions, and the matter of weeks. and they are jubilant. they have after 20 years of answer rection and rebellion. believe they want, ah, ah, i virtually any measure this war was a failure. in some respects, it even made things worse. from a humanitarian perspective or a 3rd of afghans near an offer on the verge of starvation, with no hope inside the drugs manufactured and export adat of of canister gill, countless youth world wide. from a geopolitical perspective, the taliban considered an international pariah. since its inception is now having
7:25 am
to be negotiated with it, i counted with even the un bob from a security perspective. yes, al qaeda the eat of ghana stud may have been degraded but, but something worse has taken its place in that is isis which has bound to the challenge to afghanistan, dominance by the taliban. just to add to marat's report, afghanistan's banks have almost no run out of cash, and people are running out of food less than 2 months after they tell upon takeover . added to that foreign aid is in short supply with western donors, reluctant to deal with the new government charities are warning of a major humanitarian crisis. i know this is not easy, but that needs to be some solution to the financial flows into afghanistan to ensure that at least salaries can be paid, and that is sensual supplies, power, unable to being 2 of them,
7:26 am
can be procured. the absence of that will seriously exacerbate vulnerability for ordinary afghans. and take a look at this, we spoke to enough gunman not living in dire poverty, who admitted to the on a much annabel, some would say indefensible. lockton fact of selling his own kids. he claims it was done to feed his other children. they go up to cambridge anxious to get, had a good business and a happy life and could do smaller. but then the war began and we migrated here. my savings were exhausted, bottom elevated, some people got some aid here. hodge, but the others did not. my pockets are empty now and i have no option left. but to sell some of my kids in the world and to fight for the survival of my other kids with the money i get that way. but if you could make him official, when your stomach is empty, you can't think about the dark sides out of a g. i'm forced to sell a few of my kids to feed others. there is no option left from the previous government did not help me, but i hope this new one will support me. i'm not asking for support for myself alone, a but for all these people living here,
7:27 am
like they are all from my tribe where they measure all of us refugees. here are one families. i asked for financial help for every one i couldn't handle the story to bring you this news. our for senior russian prison officials have been fired on a criminal probe, launched after footage, appeared on line showing inmates apparently being raped and tortured. investigators have rated offices of the prison on seas. computers and other hardware. 7 criminal cases have been opened versus penitentiary service has promised to punish any staff find guilty of violence against inmates. the disturbing videos were 1st published by rights activists r t spoke with the groups leader. well, we managed to identify almost all the perpetrators now lawyers and investigators will work with them. there will be more than 10 criminal cases based on those horrific scenes. among them was the head of security or the facility who gave the orders to filmed the torture and was told to had the footage over to the federal
7:28 am
penitentiary service. well, we also heard from a former in may to describe they horrific practices inside the facility. did even with love. i arrived at the prison and i was given a paper to sign saying that i don't have any complaints against the prison administration or the inmates. and that no force was used against me. i had been behind bars before, but i had never seen these kinds of documents before, but i refused to sign. so i was led to a room where another inmate was on his knees naked and in front of him stood a man swinging his genitals near the inmates face. i didn't want that to happen to me, so i signed the paper that i was transferred to a room with no surveillance camera. people called the room a torture chamber, but i didn't know that 4 people came in and beat me up, tied me to the bed, took my clothes off. they told me i was trying to disrupt the prison regime. but that really came from nowhere. they even demanded money from me. i spent 2 days tied up there now who wins are perhaps more pertinently, who loses all it?
7:29 am
when big government goes up against big tech and battle plato this week in the u. s . congress. news views, shoes, dells deeper into that, and it's next them, ah, with these are the 4 people who pulled the trigger as her 5, something and survival. wonderful. hardest things that i had to face was not having a face, adult expectation or life. i accepted the accept the fact that i made that work. we had no fears. jell change pretty fast. 4 shots,
