these time they were answering an infantry distress. cool. as all fighters had set up in a high rise building behind thick concrete walls, infantry is no match for them, but a tank ease ah! throughout mary opal, you'll find hundreds of civilians stay and nights outside their homes. those who refuse to evacuate, they keep shifts, and link arms to block entrances in order to keep ukrainian troops from breaking into apartments and firing at russian forces, making targets of people's homes. sometimes it works. sometimes as of nationalists just shoot them dead like horses. hey, we are in a bad state. we've been living in a basement since march 10th. sometimes we're sticker heads out. our building was on fire. it took
10:07 am
a day to put out the blaze on the 1st floor. everything was destroyed is the roof, the national split up into groups of 10 or so people that took a positions and housing blocks to came here and sat up in the night. you can tell where they've been by the condition of the buildings. if the building is all black and burned down, than the nationalists were there, if the building is untouched than they were probably not allowed in their russian tags. avoid firing at louis flores. that's where basements are usually crowded with terrified civilians. variable was always a pro russian city, and people here as seen as citizens of the didn't yet people's republic. much like the tank crew. again, yes, of course, violet. we've waited for so long. our patience is run out. this is my 3rd tank van . shirley will, will win. justice is on our side. we've been fighting for 8 years since 2014. most of the troops here locals. veterans who've held back the ukrainian army and increasing hordes of radical nationalists for years. their families have lived

10:09 am
refugees are coming here are from murray. will ands, our bad to go and speak to us some of them and asked them what they think about the headlines in the west that are saying that they're being kidnapped from their own city by russian military at the new thought that the sim, neat duck and it's not like that at all. no claims about people being enslaved or nonsense. i'm here because i ran from the war. we get food hair 3 times a day, and we're treated well who is understanding relatives in russia expecting many of the people here. they come and pick them up from the checkpoints. i've read there was no shania. i feel outraged because those had lines are complete nonsense. i'm going to moscow with my grand daughter to get away from the house where we're in left in the basement for 21 days. we had nothing to 8, but didn't it brad for 2 weeks. so we decided to walk tank la metis to the border. uh huh. there were 3 families now group. we tried very hard to get on the bus. no
10:10 am
one forced us. we all have our passports in our hands, of oldest statements to the country allies. i've rarely seen any western journalists here in dawn, boston why that picture coming out of the nest people's republic is sometimes very skewed, but it's not inside it true because there's some western journalists i have in dbi working here for the last 8 years. and one of them is maximilian clark, who's been working for the last 8 years. the impression i go, if people have family or friends on this side of town on as they can just go there freely. no one really checks the camps are there for the people have nowhere else to go. people are leaving to russia again if they can. but this notion of local people being drafted off of steer pods. russia does not murray with the experience i've found speaking to people. daily outrage is probably the best word to describe
10:11 am
the feelings of the year. refugees here in the nest for the right from a reasonable outrage about the western headlines that claim. and they have been kidnapped by the russian army and will be forced into slave labor somewhere in russia, as i've talked to them. and they told me that they hear on their own will, and all they want is for this conflict to finally and so they can return back to their homes and live a normal peaceful life. roman coffer of hearty go next. ah, the high head of the russian space agency rose cosmo says cooperation on the international space station may be in limbo. if sanctions continue to be imposed on rushes space industry. this was in response to letters from western colleagues in which russia's demands to lift sanctions were left unanswered of mine there some joined here in the studio by a correspondence donald coarser don, things were coming in. what exactly did the head of the russian space agency say?
10:12 am
well, nike dmitri regoza is definitely not happy about the responses he received from western space agencies to his demand, to lift these sanctions from russia space industry. nasa basically said it's going to do whatever washington tells it to do. and the european union space agency said it would forward, we're godson's letter to the governments of the e. u. member states, however, waiting around for the bureaucracies of 28 different countries is not something that bad of ross cosmos is prepared to do. instead, he said that it, that the west needs to realize that it needs russia for anything and everything in connection to the international space station increase in the length. do they need the international space station without the russians? they cannot cove there because no one but us can deliver fuel to the no one but the engine val kauger chef can correct the position of international space station doors in space. debris. but nobody's getting rid of the sanctions. so a sanctions on the radar. what does the future hold for the international space
10:13 am
station corporation? well, march 31st was the deadline that ross cosmo set for these western space agencies to lift those sanctions that i mentioned before. and we're golden in his most recent letter reiterated that to, to restore full cooperation with regard to the international space station. they have to be lifted. he said that these sanctions are aimed at bringing hunger and despair to russia, basically to bring the country to its knees. and because they have not been lifted, a deadline is going to be brought to moscow to, to, to, to, to basically a deadline to end for cooperation with these western space agencies. and to, for review, that's already going to be sent to moscow. very soon. as for the current contracts that are in place, i mean, we don't know what's going to happen with them. there's still not enough details to understand. but another thing that we're golden said he actually voice this frustration that completely unsubstantiated rumors that were going around the western media accusing russia of planning to abandon. american astronaut marco
10:14 am
vonda high on the international space station. let's take a list the need for the nursery. some of our partners claimed that russia and ross cosmos decided to keep the american astronaut and nobody. and they're not even joking. in all seriousness, they, even as far as we know, informed his mother that such a misfortune had happened, and by the evil will of the russians, he would now forever find space. of course, at 1st were too busy with great surprise, then it cost extra irritation. lou because nothing but speculation and inappropriate hands of the lack of integrity of russian colleagues is behind this. needless to say that astronaut did return from the i s. s safe and sound earlier in the week. or tell us more about these sanctions and what they include as well. russia has been facing, of course, an unprecedented level of sanctions since it began its special military operation in ukraine. but in late february, another package of sanctions was leveled against russia that included a number of firms that are connected to russia space agency. these firms among them
10:15 am
are the ones that actually run rushes mission control station as well as the firm that produces cy use rockets the most widely used in space, travel with space travel in the world on top of that europe space agency just last month ended up suspending a mission that it was going to cooperate with russia on to send a rover to mars at the, around the same time the british satellite company, one web, also called off. it's launch of dozens of satellites from the bike and or cosmic drop in cars extend. so with these recent developments, unfortunately, it looks like the future of space travel is not looking. so good cooperation, light dawn, many things for the update on thought he's don't quarter ah, the un secretary general spokesperson condemns breton censorship. of russian media outlets including r t, suggesting the measures violates quite the rights of journalists to do their work everywhere. to do the u. k. government announced the sanctions against
10:16 am
a number of 1st states russian states, media including journalists, those sanctions who employ in as us as fries. just any comment regarding that, how does that correspond with the principles of freedom of media? we've, you know, we've seen a lot of bilateral sanctions being imposed or during this conflict we feel are we are, our field is really the un un impose sanctions. as a matter of principle, we'd very much do believe in the right of journalists to, to do their work for everywhere. that's off. the british government announced a raft of new sanctions, vowing that russian news network r t would quote no one to be able to find its way back on u. k. televisions. let's take a look at the british government's reasons for imposing the back. russia might be
10:17 am
the most sanctioned country in the world, but it turns out does always space for more. the u. k. government, that champion of free speech not only applauded the decision to revoke ortiz broadcasting license, but it's now imposed targeted sanctions, unquote, putin's propaganda machine. for what reason? r t has propagated pro kremlin narratives around the invasion of ukraine, including that neo nazis are present in the country and that ukrainian soldiers have committed war crimes. well, firstly, ukrainian government officials themselves off to seeing videos of russian prisoners of war being shot in the legs. have urged that soldiers to abide by the geneva convention. so haga pro criminal narrative as to the neo nazis. it is indeed true that r t has covered the alarming rise of fascist ideology in ukraine, including at the very highest levels of government. but it is also true that r t is not the only one. bo was a shrine for,
10:18 am
for rice extremism that celtic crosses, swastikas and white power symbols. it was also an unhealthy obsession with nazi germany. yes, that was a clip from the u. k. 's pride and joy, the b, b. c. there's also this b b c news night program called the near nazi threat in you ukraine. this got in video about a fall right children's camp. and this time video cooled inside a white supremacist militia in ukraine. in fact, has a comprehensive list of articles written by the western press about ukraine's knots . he problem funny but my to remember seeing any of these outlets on any sanctions list and if you think it's just r t that spotted, as you turn on the media's opinion of neo nazis think again. western media reporting on ukrainian nazi's back in 20142015 or to day calling this russian propaganda see what these very outlets wrote. 8 years ago in 2015,
10:19 am
the new york times described ukraine's resolve battalion as openly neo nazi today. n y t is anton troy, an off ski describes as of as far right what happened to dissolve, complete a special training program that takes open neo nazis and turns them into a more palatable far right. the fascist see hile was a gesture. i would see a ukrainian game i went to the 2nd accusation leveled against r t is that generally, it amplifies moscow's lies about the war. hooton's war and ukraine is based on a torrent of lies. britain has helped lead the world in exposing kremlin dis information, and this latest batch of sanctions hits the shameless propagandists who push out putins fake news in narratives. my question then is all the western journalists who helped politicians sell the iraq war to the public, sanctioned weather as it seized? were they taken off there?
10:20 am
or did they just get away with repeating the mantra of those fabled weapons of mass destruction? oh and repeat, they did. in fact, if you're interested, there's a $101.00 page report on the media coverage of the event. i'll save you the time. i'm bringing to conclusion. virtually all of the news coverage accepted without serious question the political formulation, weapons of mass destruction as a single category of threat. too often, journalists resorted to what the trade calls, stenographic coverage, writing down what the military or political officials said without getting additional confirming or contesting sources. other failures frequently related to inaccuracies in the given definitions, political context or ramifications of the weapons systems mention. but forgiven. forget a, it's not pro war propaganda when you're the one doing it. looking at all this, it's almost as if there are double standards in play. with this action,
10:21 am
the u. k. government has sounded the death knell for media freedom in britain. we will continue to bring the news to audiences that wish to seek it and prevent a media echo chamber from being orchestrated by blank. heard officials hell bent on conflating. anything remotely russian with wrong. with these latest sanctions, the u. k. has made 2 very simple points. freedom of the price only applies to your press untruths or lies only when they come out of russia. as pressure on the east and well intensifies, the e. u is asking china to maintain neutrality over the ukraine conflict with the european commissions president warning paging not to interfere with the west sanctions against russia. european councils, as china should abide by the u. n. 's general position denouncing russia's actions in ukraine. we truth on china to help and the war in ukraine, china try not to the blind eye to russia's volition of international law. these
10:22 am
principles are enshrined in the un charter and principled secret to china. time is not related to policy on the crisis of ukraine, and we don't think our normal trade with any other country should be affected. even europe have been conducting your normal business with the russians. you have in stock or your trade with russians. and so our normal trade with moscow should not be affected because the employment and the living standards of china, also dependent on the normal trade was older countries including russia. chinese prime minister told e u leaders the beijing would push for pace quote, in its own way and president, she added the global community should back dialogue between russia and ukraine. not fuel to the fire. aging has traditionally close ties with moscow, with the relationship strengthening in recent years. amid pressure from the west,
10:23 am
we spoke to the deputy head of the shanghai center for rim pack and international studies. think tank, he said. western efforts to oppose russia will escalate. note ease the ukraine crisis. china feels very sad, a sorry for what's happening, a new cray. china has also urge that the ultimate go. the priority for all parties, including the nato, is to de escalate, not to poor few onto the fire. there is no sense for china to listen to anybody, all how china should say what position china should take. this is dividing the world and it's not right. because we are here to try and create a world that is meant for peace and development instead of conflict. instead of having conflict all the time and splitting the world into 2 paths is very bad. and
10:24 am
it's detrimental in the way forward you needs to survive and needs to survive better under the circumstances, by not taking a stand in that sentence. while china and india pursue a neutral stance over the ukranian conflicts, they marked the 72nd anniversary of diplomatic relations on friday. the chinese on boston says both countries should stick to a long term perspective and the co operative posture. we discussed the improving relations between india and china with benjamin chow, a senior fellow at the center for china on the globalization, an agent to mangia and editor magazine, india. today. both china and india as do you have your very steep coat of growth and development. there is really no plug to not to cooperate, he's our economies which are dominating the war in terms of economic growth. in
10:25 am
terms of, you know, the emergence of sort of a total open population, very large consumer base. they are the biggest consumers off russia, oil, the other biggest consumers of middle east oil, one of the objectives, the priming is channel china is to also form when you buy most of the prison mortgage you attend to brings stop, meet china is holding. they do, then, you know, what was the original court up as a grouping of emerging economies and market is now it's actually a very strong force to balance the views of the west. obviously we had some water problems which came up recently between the 2 countries. and which has not been resolved. and that was one reason when the last week, for example, when one geek, the chinese foreign minister came to india. we had long docs between the 2
10:26 am
countries. but the border issues they did not catch up on friends to india and china and china year together is 36 percent of the world's population and trying to present or talk to d p. normally in terms. so russia offers oil and defense to india, and russia offers point to china. and they have, since john has again to us, seems a tree 12018 china. india has a $100000000000.00, a trade between the, between the 2. in fact, india, russia only $9000000000.00 trade. so yes, that is a growing closeness and because of the economic sanctions, and this a fight between, let's nato was a russia, then try to build an order on it to forum via the bricks, in which, as i said, india, russia is already very close in the china, a trying to closer with the west,
10:27 am
continuing to pressure countries into solidarity with ukraine. few have been stronger in their refusal to tow the european union's line been serbia. the country of parliament now says it wants to cause its neutrality into the constitution of suggesting that all policy should indicate that positions on nato kosovo cannot make sanctions, including those against russia. serbia has been repeatedly criticized by the west for his neutrality and unwillingness to impose such sanctions. he's high time for the sabbath government and the president to publicly condemn the russian invasion in ukraine. time of sitting on 2 chairs is over known alignment with the whole of europe on this will put serbia in self isolation. serbia urgently needs to return to democracy and the rule of law. this includes fully condemning russia's aggression against ukraine and joining the ranks of its european partners a se,
10:28 am
neutrality that has been called into question at the european parliament with some members calling for the suspension of service e. you exception talks on financial support. if it does not fall in line with the policy, then in mid march, you official michael c a but declared to be it would pay for being on the wrong side of the conflict. on tuesday, the operates of the croatian oil pipeline said it would stop transporting crude facilities, oil and gas company. the, despite the precious baby has remained steadfast and his neutrality and pro russia rallies are frequently taken place in bel grade. we discussed how serbia is coping with pressure from the west with marco gassett, a commentator in international affairs 30 years in a very difficult position because it is surrounded by nature and european countries . the policy that serbia is following is the same policy followed by practically
10:29 am
all the rest of the world outside the western alliance. so somebody has to write like the rest of the world to make his own policy is not a member of the european union that is not bound to follow a common you policy. we have functions here and we have war here, and it's a factor. the u. s. will wage war against russia to the last ukranian and it will wage economic war to the last european because the u. s. a moment is the beneficiary of splitting away europe from russia, of making germany and russia each other's opponents. this is something that the u. s. we've been trying to do for a very long time and has succeeded. but the u. s. has also succeeded in waking up the rest of the world against it because the rest of the world understands that the battle that russia fights is an existential one for everybody against a parasitic control by western elite,
10:30 am
which has never been good for those of the countries themselves, this is why there's other countries or not sanction russia, as the west is demanding. those countries does western countries who want serbia to sanction russia. the same western countries who sanctioned serbia to demonize serbia illegally bombs. why should sorry, listen to them. hi, skip his company or nancy international with the back of the top of the eye with the latest see them ah ah, to come to russian state to never outside of the most landscape with.
