people up nor saw. mm hm. ah ah, the dim efficiency pledge to boost the gas flow to europe finally takes of heat out of the market. it comes up to reco, breaking price surges this week, which certainly even was questioning brussels energy policies. moscow far as a counter request to the global chemical weapons watchdog to america and questions about the alleged poisoning of kremlin critic alex in val nick despite the o. p. c. w. still refusing to cooperate with russia on the case, we hear firsthand from russia's envoy to the body a feeling that something else that goals are driving them. it is possible that this
6:01 pm
whole story is connected with the escalation of sanctions pressure on this exactly 20 years since the u. s. coalition invaded afghanistan with the country now in meltdown. family sarah, having to resort to unthinkable measures when your stomach is empty, you can't think about the dark. sorry. i'm forced to sell a few of my kids to feed others. there's no option left with y'all. welcome. thanks for joining me here on rti into boiling gas prices. some been reduced to somewhat of a sigma after intervention from vladimir putin who said that russia will ramp up exposed to europe addressing the continents energy crisis. on wednesday, the president added moscow would continue its commitment to ukraine with regards to gas transit. as she says,
6:02 pm
she's just 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 transitive gas through ukraine. although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange, but 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 prompts confidence is an absolute, reliable partner in all respects. for them, a potent statements, the subsequent less up in the gas price surge have seen some in the mainstream media changing that attitude towards the nose stream to pipeline. and more generally, on russia's role as youtube's key energy supply concerns about moscow's alleged attempts to use oil and gas is leverage. will they seem to have reduced at russia
6:03 pm
once it to be approved? but i don't think which is really doing anything wrong here in europe. has a supply crunch, and russia has the gas to supply it. russia does instantly benefit from care in the market. they want hired table prices, and they want to be seen as a reliable partner. some are words soothing words, i guess which we rarely get from mr. potent actually helped reverse that. 3540 percent jump over night in natural gas over in europe. yes. an element of, of russia playing politics, but is also an element of a lot of money having been invested in noise. they do not just on the russian side from the european side as well. outgoing german chancellor angler, michael has been vocal in her support of russia as a supply partner speaking it and he, you balkan summit in slovenia. she stress moscow's always stuck to its contractual
6:04 pm
obligations. the fog is our gift. if you ask me whether there have been orders that russia has taken and then fail to fulfill as it stands now, that is not the case. various, there are no orders that russia has said no, we will not deliver those to you, and we are not pumping gas through the ukrainian pipeline. rather, russia can only fulfill orders that have been contract it out. so the questions really isn't have been ordered. the russian leader also put the current crisis in the european gas market down to the ease rushed push for a green transition, coupled with brussels decision to switch from long term gas contracts to immediate spot trading. the current volatility can be traced back to april this year, but it came to a had this week, and it left european citizens to del, yet deeper into already strained pockets. ah.
6:05 pm
maintaining a trusted energy partnership between russia in europe has been a key focus of an international gas form that's taking place now in st. petersburg . it's day 3 of that meeting. i corresponds ilia for tank as that, and on the side line see caught up with the ceo of the association of european businesses, tunzia shilling. in the end, a pragmatism prevailed. it also showed that the interests of different stakeholders need to be taken into account. there is no sense in insisting on a,
6:06 pm
on one perspective and denying the to the fact that others view a project differently, you need to sit together. so it also showed the need for international cooperation the, the fact that now the stalemate has been overcome. and that we have avoided her. a complete blockage of the project is actually very good news. as europe, as a soon as association of european businesses, we've also always been very clear that we are against the application of sanctions, especially in an extra territorial perspective that we think this is a purely commercial project. and we also think that the european energy security, something that should be decided in europe, natural gas has a, an actually tremendous role to play as a transition shoe. we are here talking now about traditional fuel mix that we need
6:07 pm
to move away from and move to greener or energy sources. but there is also a way how we need to bridge this process between the status, that is the current status and, and, and future desires status. in the wake of the gas by serge, spain is said that the european commission should negotiate gas contracts on behalf of all each member states, instead of the present system of individual nations agreeing contracts. the proposal law government is making is that the commission negotiates on behalf of all 27 member states. what we propose is a strength and cooperation. but not everybody's happy about the dream proposal with critic signed that it encroaches on the sovereignty of national states. alternative germany party, i mean pay going to back believes that the scheme would run counter to the ease own current rules. it clearly contravene for article
6:08 pm
$194.00 of the eel treaties. there's a very bad habit on the part of the war. institutions themselves, as well as many member states to disregard its own goal. they think their national interest justifies a breach of the treaty. they don't hesitate to ask others to disregard the treaty. now, as a purely hypothetical scenario, if the treaty didn't dis allied, would i support this proposal? when it depends on the perspective, isn't necessarily sensible for a country to share it's energy supplies with everyone else. that's pretty little sort of devotee on the power to bother you repeat countries with germany general there. so i'm not sure for
6:09 pm
a solution. on the other hand, what is the german government like it because it ever has any regard for it's a country's national interest. it's quite conceivable that the german government will choose to disregard the treaty and do what isn't in its own country's interest . russia's foreign ministry, his fardy counter requests to the o. p. c, w. after the u. s. and 44 other countries officially submitted a list of questions to the body, demanding moscow give details of the alleged poisoning of kremlin critic alex in the bombing. russia said several times, the global chemical weapons watchdog is bluntly refusing to cooperate any one who calls on russia to conduct an investigation incorporation with the o. p. c. w. into what happened to miss in a valley meets to once again be reminded of the facts. a year ago,
6:10 pm
russia replied to the technical secretariat of the o. p. c. w, for technical assistance on the article 8 of the convention. but we never got any help in august of last year and apparently fell ill on an internal flight to moscow. after an emergency landing, he was taking the hospital in place and used coma newsletter airlifted, to germany. at the request of his family was in berlin. certain of only had been exposed to the navic chalk nerve agent, and ultimately blamed the russian government the both russian officials and medical professionals who treated navarro. nicholas no boys in the substances were even detected in his body while he was in a russian hospital. moscow repeatedly ass, both germany on the p. c. w for a joint investigation after recovering alex and have only returned to moscow where he was subsequently arrested and sentenced to 2 years in prison for breaking parole conditions relating to a corruption case. we spoke to the russian representative to the p. c. w. alexander shogun,
6:11 pm
who gave us 1st and information on the latest developments. ah, status, obsidian. see there's a feeling that something else. other goals are driving them. judge for yourself today. i was not allowed to speak for more than an hour. the pretext were different . for example, the absence of the bulgarian representative. he should have been reading the appeal of 45 countries. i asked the ambassadors of the united states, great britain to britney not want to hear the answer from russia. there was no desire to listen to us. apparently, uh, the goals are being pursued. it is possible that this whole story is connected with the escalation of sanctions prussia, america. ah, we wanted to do a joint investigation and what do you think the technical secretariat began to drag out the whole thing? one of the excuses was that there were no similar incidents from the u. k. all the u. s. were putting forward a counter request within the same framework and expect that france sweden and the technical secretariat will never last ounce of the same questions that we asked
6:12 pm
earlier. we close this subject with a request from 45 countries and sent a counter request. the ball is on their side. ah, now just give them some nato countries of working with substances called navi chalk, a recall the statements of the check president who said in his country there were laboratories where work is carried out with the substance called a $23.00 oh, which can be attributed to navi chuck, the pretty side admitted that in their potent down laboratory work was carried out with substances from the family of navi choke the united states is the only country that is not freed itself from chemical weapons. 140 peyton's have been developed there for the use of ammunition that contains chemical warfare agents such as navi choke today, marked 20 years since the u. s. and his allies invaded afghanistan, toppling the taliban regime. now in the wake of the west and pull out there are many questions being asked. not least,
6:13 pm
one of the telephones offered to handle summer than loudon bank than was rejected on the bush administration. lead to 2 decades of war and countless lives being lost . and at the end of it, all the militants aback in charge of correspond and rank as they have reports from cobble on what the conflict is achieved. the afghan war and is just shy of it's. it's 20th anniversary, the, the war 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, and 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 that is that is that it was unanimously considered an abject failure. but taliban is, is back in control. and more absolutely than it was before the united states
6:14 pm
invaded afghanistan. and the question that we're hearing now in the halls of congress, in parliament's, in europe and the press and he's 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 and nursing arrange that we do not grass the damaging effect. the frequent and unexplained rotations by president ghani of his commanders, and that we fail to fully grasp what there was only so much for which and for home men of the afghan forces would fight. this has been a 10 year malt, 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,
6:15 pm
the end of the war is humiliating for america. they want some one held responsible, the biden and miss administration, as well as the pentagon. so far they have done their best to absolve themselves of all accountability for what many americans again see as the catastrophe. they argue that the fault is with many american administrations that that preceded them. and that is ignoring the tremendous financial cost of the war. 7 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
6:16 pm
ah. you're the wealthiest country in the history of the world, and yet we have the highest child poverty rates of almost any country on earth from the perspective of a civilian. there is scott evidence here on the ground in afghanistan of any of that money, other 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
6:17 pm
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, the democratic institutions, and the matter of weeks. and they are jubilant. they have off to 20 years of and selection and rebellion, believe they want. mm . ah. by virtually any measure, this war was a failure. in some respects, it even made things worse. from a humanitarian perspective, or
6:18 pm
a 3rd of afghans near enough are on the verge of starvation, with no hope inside them. the drugs manufactured and export to that of, of canister kill countless youth world wide. from a geopolitical perspective, the taliban considered an international pariah since its inception is now having to be negotiated with it. i counted with even a, the un bob from a security perspective. yes, al card the eat of canister 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. kenneth stands, banks have almost run out of cash, and people are running out of food less than 2 months after the taliban take over. added to that foreign aid is in short supply with western donors, reluctance to deal with the new government charities a warning of
6:19 pm
a major humanitarian crisis. and 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 a sensual supplies, power and bowl to being 2 of them can be procured. the absence of that will seriously exacerbate vulnerability for ordinary afghans and we spoke to an afghan man who's now living in die poverty, who admitted to the unimaginable, some might say indefensible. act of trying to sell his own children claims. it was an attempt just to get money to feed the rest of his family back home and they go up to cambridge anxious to get had a good business and a happy life from room to smaller. but then the war began, shall we migrated here and my savings were exhausted formula they did have some people got some aid here much, but the others did not. my pockets are empty now and i have no option laugh at what to sell. some of my kids in the war than to fight for the survival of my other kids
6:20 pm
with the money. i get that way when you get them and they give a patient. when your stomach is empty, you can't think about the dark. sorry. he's out of energy, i'm forced to sell a few of my kids to feed others. there's no option lashonda 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, that he but for all these people living here like they are all from my tribe, what image can all of us refugees? here are one families. i asked for financial help for everyone. i could, as you may say, slums, it's doors shut. to nearly half the russian delegation to the alliance setting a rise in malign activity will bring a reaction from moscow after the break. ah, join me every 1st day on the alex salmon. sure. but i'll be speaking to guess in the world of politics, sport, business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm.
6:21 pm

6:24 pm
children being victimized that was rather de minimis compared to the overall kind of obscured message. it is interesting how she came out of nowhere. and i know there's a lot of interest as to who she is and where did she come from? man, the end, why did she get blue checked so quickly and she was, she just started twitter on october. now that doesn't mean anything and, and of itself. but there's a lot of people who are saying, no, this is interesting. i believe nothing, nothing. i am told whatever the news is, it is an insinuation, it is a suggestion. it is a presumption of truth. i don't believe anything. rusher is that it's delegation to night or nearly half with the alliance appearing vague in offering explanations. why? in all 8 diplomats were bought from its brussels. h q. moscow says the moose's. it
6:25 pm
is clearly not interested in improving relations on a call to reports. nato made that decision to expel those 8 russian diplomats on wednesday. and so why was this diplomatic mission cut in half? well, according to nato, no reason in particular, this decision is not linked to in the, for particular events that you saw. a undeclared russian intelligence officers on the, on the we have seen an increase in ocean malign activities. sky news said that these diplomats were suspected of espionage and even suspected of killing people. i mean, is quite a 180 from nothing in particular. right now, the kremlin has responded, gotten the shock. this moved by nature surprised us, but it was not an expected. we were shocked face impertinence because there were no official explanations of the reasons behind it. at the same time, a campaign started on social media, a smear campaign characterized by number fakes,
6:26 pm
and straight up disinformation, voice from the sight of nita. now russia's foreign minister sergey lab. rob did have a talk with stolen berg about convening the nato, russia council for talks, but so far nothing's been agreed on. so we're gonna have to see how relations go from here. okay, this will for now, but don't forget we have those when you stories over on a website, you can check them out simply by heading to r t dot com. mm ah. oh, the way of life of reindeer herders leading a traditionally nomadic lifestyle in the tundra is similar to a parallel reality. while the men drive,
6:27 pm
the hood, women carry the weight of the household work on their shoulders. rather than make sure that when it was the last she met with, however, in the vast expanse of russia, there is a spot where a house wife could secure a regular employment status. it's in the fall semester with oh
6:28 pm
well come to the alec salmon. sure, will we examine the long term economic consequences of corbett? my check, a nomic study has been focused on a dramatic acute impact of the pandemic. the collapse and will trade in g d, p, followed by a storm recovery in many economies and a continuing struggle of many administrations to balance health priorities with sustaining economic activity. given them mixed results much work to produce better policy outcomes remains to be done. however, 2 economists on either side of the planet have also been focusing on the longer term human economics of corporate. to day, we examine the work of new zealand economist, dr. richard, meet. i, professor, debit bank flora of dartmouth college in the united states. is this richard me as a research fellow in economics, awkward university of technology and principal economists of cognitive economic
6:29 pm
insight. he's part of forward a policy initiative of corporate family loans, which is i good will be more beneficial and affordable than short term lee by subsidies. it might be a promising alternative to the chancellor of the exchequer cutting benefits for the poorest people in the land. he's in conversation with alex dalton, richard made. thank you so much for joining me. in the alex island shore from auckland, new zealand. it's a rush, nice to be. yeah, it's not to be the, a lot of the economic analysis of the pandemic is focused on the the acute face, the shop fallen. what o g d p. the shot recovery in many countries? but do you think that the long term effects be constantly of what's called long coven, long debilitating condition that many people are suffering from? i think it's, i'm obviously early days in the sense that we don't yet know what long curve it really is going to be looking like long term. but it certainly giving us
6:30 pm
indications that it could be something that has a very long tail, and it could effect a great proportion of the population, especially the younger part of the population. that's going to have a very enduring economic cost. it's so many similar disease. what has that debilitating effect and the significant quantity that has been measured? so some compatible can have with other conditions. i could speak to my own personal experience in the sense that i had kind of to take some drawing more otherwise known as n e o. miles i can see if a lot of my lightest for 11 years and heavily that results i'm years ago. but when i started fist reading about long covered and the sorts of symptoms that the sufferers, a long curve having to put up with their jamie or rather nasty sins of dashava in time. and maybe think this is even this, these conditions. and also typical or not even on the same sort of ball park long private as anything like transportation drive as it could have very potentially long consequences for.
