3:05 am
a certain address and we got to stop by some civilians here in history that they asked us to take this elderly gentleman to the of the building there and he needs urgent help right now. so we are taken to the hospital with 4 years old or world war 241 full year. so when he was a child with shit, the war them wants to get off the door. hopefully 11. once he comes down, everybody here a little bit i was just
3:06 am

3:07 am
ukrainian forces are alleged to have committed an artillery strike on a residential building in the city of dun yeske, local authorities same at least one civilian was killed and for others were wounded including a child. and there are fears more people are trapped under the rubble. officials said ukrainian nationalists fired 10 shelves at a residential area on wednesday morning. russia has received a draft agreement that could c, ukraine become a non aligned, neutral countries. following the latest round of negotiations in support of the current piece efforts, moscow has agreed to drastically reduce its military activity in your cave. but you can even president zaleski says, moscow is not to be trusted more than the other. was it the we can call positive the signals we hear from the negotiating platform. but these signals do not silence the explosion of russian shells. of course we see all the risk,
3:08 am
but of course we see no reason to trust the words of certain representatives of a state that continues to fight for our destruction. the ukrainians are not naive people. ukrainians have already learned during these 34 days of invasion and over the past 8 years of the war. and the don based that only a concrete result can be trusted. ukrainian children have been reportedly films playing wargames dressing up as nationalist fighters carrying replica weapons and using nationalist symbols and signs. they have also, apparently been seen checking cars for russians by asking everyone a code words right up front of me, follow the mason out there because it almost was putting nothing new mark so, but it was in the reports about ukrainian children being trained to fight russia
3:09 am
emerged along before the war erupt last month with claims that kids were being indoctrinated and prepared for warfare at summer camps in ukraine, and then that of to separate houston, what all's facility felicia was supposed to go on to the amount of money and was at the moment with this more than a model the model that you just heard there is based on a greeting, popularized in nazi germany. in the 940, it was reportedly created by the ukranian nationalist who collaborated with hitler's forces during world war 2. that group is said to have participated in crimes against jews including the bobby yard massacre and committed ethnic cleansing and pull it. now small children are reportedly being indoctrinated with neo nazi symbols as well such as this young girl appearing with a swastika. and as of battalion signs on social media, she was shown holding a knife and raising her hand and, and apparently hitler salute while shouting out threats to russians.
3:10 am
this, there are also reported rises in anti semitism and the prosecution of roma. people in ukraine, as well as restrictions on the use of the russian language and the destruction of soviet world war 2 monuments. we discussed the issue of ultra nationalism among children with a clinical psychologist, chloe carmichael, offer of the book, nervous energy, harness the power of your anxiety and the creator of a special kids care system. she says it's natural for children to copy the adults around them. at 1st age, children are very much like sponges. they're learning everything. they're learning how to speak, their learning, what their name is, everything that they're learning about, their identity is coming to them through the adults in their life. so at this very young, tender, vulnerable age,
3:11 am
they could be very impressionable as far as learning and understanding who is an enemy, who is a friend, who is a foe. children do use play as a way to cope with stress or to feel power fall when they are feeling scared. so for many children, even acting out in a playful way, scenes about war or conflicts, can be a way of coping or feeling powerful during extreme stressors. the russian foreign minister, sir gala rob is to hold a series of key meetings with counterparts from several countries including iran, pakistan, and indonesia. he is also meeting with china's foreign minister for the 1st time since the war in ukraine interrupted a month ago. china has not joined the sanctions against russia and is resisting washington's pressure to do so. being as repeatedly blamed the u. s. for the crisis
3:12 am
in ukraine saying that it has resulted from the west, ignoring russia's security concerns for years. meanwhile, other washington says, the indo pacific region is a foreign policy priority. the white house has indefinitely postponed a special summit with leaders from across se, asia. it was replaced with a bilateral summit with singapore, after that country openly condemned russia. archie's rachel blevins has a story. at the start of this year, the white house announced a new pivot and a foreign policy. it was going to concentrate on the ease with a strategic focus on establishing the american president firmly in the in the pacific under president biden. the united states is determined to strengthen our long term position in and commitment to the indo pacific. we will focus on every corner of the region from northeast asia and southeast asia to south asia and oceania, including the pacific islands. well, it has been less than a month since that $900.00 page document was published and it has not been met with
3:13 am
a warm. 2 woke up as it seems that every corner of the region is not keen on having washington dictated their policy while the by ministration promise to summit with representatives of the 10 countries that make up the association of south east asian nations which press secretary jones docket, described as a top priority to show that the u. s. a strong, reliable partner in the region. yeah, that's so met has now been phoned indefinitely. instead. president bible held a bilateral some. it was singapore alone this week. why singapore? well, as the only country in se, asia that is complied with washington demand to condemn and impose sanctions against russia. i'm sure you're completely pleased with what's happening and you're right now. but we definitely appreciate the time they're giving to singapore the supplication countries generally. so why the cold shoulder from the rest? well, as the u. s. has made clear and criticism of the neutral position taken by china
3:14 am
and india, the by name, ministration, expect nothing short of full condemnation of russia right now. but many of the countries in the region, how strong economic time with russia, and they're not willing to jeopardize that relationship out. washington command, for example, vietnam relies heavily on russia worth calls of why were served as the largest product in the $1780000000.00 worth of goods that being on ordered from russia and 2020. on the other hand, indonesia relies on russia to buy its resources with over $1000000000.00 worth of goods exported or russia in 2020. but it's not just about the economic impact. it's also a question of the overall gravity. the u. s. has as it dictates the rules for both policy and condemnation. in fact, just last week, the u. s. declared a genocide of the people in medium are a key member of the southeast asian alliance with some even calling for military intervention. the u. s. government should couple, it's condemnations of mine. mars military with action for too long. the u. s. and
3:15 am
other countries have allowed my mars generals to commit atrocities with few real consequences. there have also been tensions with cambodia, which is the chair of the alliance after the u. s and allison arms embargo back in december, claiming it was concerned about the influence of china's military. we urge the cambodian government to make meaningful progress and addressing corruption and human rights abuses and to work to reduce the influence of the p. r. c. military and cambodia, which threatens regional and global security. so washington is sending the message, the nations in the region can't get too close to china or russia, or they may find themselves facing action from the us. but that didn't stop in donasia from joining china and voicing support for russia's place in the g 20 alliance, noting that it is the premier gathering for economic cooperation, not a political venue. and speaking of china, beijing just confirm that it will be hosting the foreign ministers in new neesha, thailand, the philippines, and me and mark this week. china will also have in depth exchanges of views with
3:16 am
all parties on the current, regional and international situation and contribute more positive energy to regional peace and stability and global prosperity and development. so it appears that the increased pressure on the u. s. is actually pushing key countries in southeast asia, even closer to the nations. they are being warned to stay away from a policy that is not working out too well for the buying and in washington, rachel blevins, archie ah, if senior u. s. military official has said that there are more russian spies in mexico than anywhere else in the world. general glen, than hurt head of the u. s. northern command made the claim to a committee. i would point out that the largest portion of g r u members in the world is in mexico right now. those are russian intelligence personnel and they keep an eye very closely on their opportunities to have influence on us
3:17 am
oppertunity and axis. mexico's president has brushed off the allegations and emphasized that his country is, quote, not a colony of russia, china or the united states. this isn't the ramos in mexico is a free, independent sovereign country. it should be no more and more because sometimes it seems that it is not understood enough. we have to send them telegrams, warning them that mexico is not a colony of any foreign country. that mexico is a free, independent sovereign country, that we are not a colony of russia, neither from china, nor from the united states. recently, a day after the russian ambassador gave a speech to mexican lawmakers about the newly inaugurated mexico, russia friendship committee. the us ambassador lashed out saying, such close ties between mexico and russia, could quote, never happen. what would the world be like if, instead of us military bases near russia's borders,
3:18 am
there were actually russian basis surrounding the u. s. american political cartoonist. ted rall addresses that issue in a comic about a suppose it russian alliance encroaching on the u. s. much like nato encroaches on russia. we discussed this with him. he says, washington wants to prevent russia from establishing deep ties with mexico because the u. s. wants to control its southern neighbor. on top of that just is the fact that the united states is, is talking out of 2 sides of their mouths, that they want to control canada, mexico, the entire western hemisphere through the monroe doctrine. look at what happened back in the early 1960 s during the cuban missile crisis. the united states did, you know, threatened to invade cuba, it sent an anti castro cubans, right. wingers to go and try to overthrow the government of cuba at the time. because cuba was too close to what was then the soviet union. but you know, they,
3:19 am
they, they don't understand why a country like russia might not want an enemy allied military alliance right on their border. despite attempts to silence the russian media in the e. u. a recent poland, france has revealed that more than half of respondents agree with some of russia's reasons for entering the ukraine. conflict r t show davinsky has more twin ot, and other channels described as being propaganda. tools of the kremlin was shut down a month ago. european leaders were triumphant. the state owned russia to date and sputnik, as well as their subsidiaries, will no longer be able to spread their lives to justify proteins war. and to saw division in our union, no more influence the public would be able to get them media from trusted sources. but despite not having easy access to russian media and belie easy to apparently
3:20 am
wants to tell you about the war in ukraine. people in france still on to, to keen to follow the heard. no, they all making up their minds about what's going on. a poll has found that more than half of those questions believe at least one of russians reasonings as to why the war broke out. despite the denials of the media, the authorities, and all the work of verifying information, a large number of french people, permeable to putin speeches aimed at justifying the invasion of ukraine. so let's dig into the figures. 30 percent of those who responded felt nieto was a cause issue with ukraine being encouraged to oscar membership. obviously you don't miss you. it's obvious, of course, yes. on western countries, they always wanted ukraine like pulling even if it isn't part of the you to join nato to annoy the russians. this war could have been avoided by agreeing with
3:21 am
russia that ukraine would not join nato and that the americans would not station or sit up there american base there. that's what started the war. kind of ha, 28 percent of people believe the russian intervention is supported by russian speaking ukrainians. who are trying to free themselves from persecution? no, no, i do not think so. i doubt it. they are brothers. i think there are facts that can be verified, different documents are archived, that can be found. you must weigh the pros and cons, contrast them and arrive at a certain accuracy that's as relevant as possible. while 10 percent thought ukraine is currently agenda infiltrated by neo nazi movements on campus, it's no secret. there are small neo nazi groups, but it's important not to generalize because there are small nazi groups in other eastern european countries to them as someone who follows football. i've seen ultra movements in eastern europe,
3:22 am
such as in hungary or poland. not all hungarians are all holes or neo nazis. i think it's the same for ukraine. good. so just who all these people that according to french outlets believe in such alarming conspiracy theories, according to eiffel, which conducted the pole it is support is from the hard right of eric the more as well as those in the pony opposite. the hot left who back shall nuke men and show. but the real punch comes from where people digest they. so cool news. those who are most sensitive to conspiracy theories are getting their information from the like. so facebook and twitter. and what do we learn from all of this? well, according to eiffel, but it's that anti faxes and now playing russian roulette. some of those who believed in anti vaccine theses have switched to supporting putin's policy. the findings also apparently suggest that if you have a pull show for reading your horoscope or even believe in magic,
3:23 am
you are probably more likely to succumb to ideas that are just not acceptable in the mainstream media. so we could. a bang social media, stop the meddling horoscopes, burn harry potter books, and only print what is sanctioned by those who are ordained to be in the know only a real strategy of education in critical reasoning and better regulation at platform can combat this phenomena and it feels sometimes like it's only one step away from the thought police. charlotte g will ski, i'll see paris. the economic fall out from western sanctions against russia is now spreading to more countries and continents. consumers across europe and africa are now bearing the brunt of the backlash amid soaring food and fuel prices. thousands of truck drivers have formed roadblocks in madrid, calling for the resignation of spain's transport minister over skyrocketing fuel prices. it is the latest development of protests in the spanish capital of the past
3:24 am
2 week commit economic backlash over western sanctions against russia. meanwhile, the chairman of the french energy regulatory commission has urged residents to conserve electricity and gas due to a risk of supply disruptions. we must conserve gas and electricity in france right now. otherwise things could go wrong. next winter history was it's 19 degrees celsius in my home, i put on to sweaters. i only heat the rooms that i live in. i don't know what else to do. i'm used to this, i don't see what more i can do. i guess of course you have to cut back and that's it. you have to reduce everything to reduce your expenses for water and pay attention to everything right now. we'll have to get used to it. so can you see, since i'm particularly concerned about the industry about agriculture? because if we have a harsh winter in france, it'll postpone a lot of things,
3:25 am
especially the efforts that we're ready to make. there are limits. we'll see. it's ultimately a matter of the collective conscience. i live alone, so it's easy for a family, it's much more difficult. the italian economy has also been hit hard and farmers say that they are on the verge of bankruptcy, amid dramatically rising cost. they are afraid their supply might come to an it could be that, that the in the key, i know several companies that will be forced to close because of the very difficult economic situation and others that when they faced the end of their supplies, we'll have to do the math and think about whether to continue their production or face closure. the main problem since the outbreak of the war has been the increase in the cost of raw materials, particularly corn, in soil, and energy costs have doubled. the boomerang effect of economic sanctions is now being felt not only in europe,
3:26 am
but on the african continent as well. kenya has raised the diesel and petrol prices by 5 kenyan shillings and historic high. now the move is expected to significantly increase the cost of living in the east african country where the majority of households rely on kerosene and petroleum gas for cooking. here's what some locals have been saying. i have come from various places all over this town looking for fuel we have moved all around la. i am even forced to push my motor bike. so that was if this motor bike and i got it on loan, i still have to pay for it. now, you know, i have not earned any money all day when i have not found any work and there's no fuel in town. i got the price started at $1.00 oh, $6.00 canyon shillings and just keeps going up. i mean, it's now more than $145.00 shillings. we've been having a big problem here in nairobi with fuel. i just arrived here at the petrol station . there is no fuel left and the price is very high. according to experts, many of the products used to make petrol and diesel come from russia and ukraine
3:27 am
and as, and so because there is war there, we're having these problems over here making fuel prices shoot up and also creating a supply shortage. i have traveled all the way from the city of caps a bit and i'm trying to get fuel for my car. like i think it has become a challenge because we don't know what is happening last week last week we had the same problem. we don't know if the problem is also in other cities, or if it's only like this year in nairobi, my mother, i am forced to leave my car here. now i don't see anything that i can do with it. meanwhile, french president manuel micron says that it would be impossible to pay for gas supplies in roubles, as requested by moscow in a phone call with russian liter vladimir putin micron, insisted that switching to rubles, would break the terms of current contracts. and moscow has said that it would supply gas paid for in rubles, or none at all. russia accounts for about 40 percent of the use gas imports. amid the fall out over the conflict in ukraine, the block is moving to cut its dependence on russian energy supplies and recently
3:28 am
into deal to buy more expensive liquefied natural gas from the u. s. instead, moscow's permanent representative to the use as europe seems to be seeking to inflict massive economic damage on its own people and businesses. what is the g 7? it's an informal club for a number of countries. all of them actually falling into the category of those who have been produced sanctions against russia. so they are point of view of will hardly be decisive and what happens all these measures are they are an additional impact on the already over heated to beach. and in the energy sector of the european union, which was aggravated not as a result of anything that russia was doing, but as the result of sanctions being introduced by the european union and
3:29 am
other western countries against the russian energy sector. definitely, there will be a major impact because so according to o economists and no energy specialists, that matter are no, there is no other alternative source in the short term that can fill that gap. should russian get supplied, be terminated now. so we'll have to see the european union is speaking of perspective regarding, oh, we need of the russian energy supplies, but that will take time. i don't want to speaker how many years, but certainly it's many years. i that is it for me this hour,
3:30 am
stay with us throughout the day as we bring you more news and updates on the war and ukraine's cable. so i teach national ah i look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people i
3:31 am
robot must obey the order.
