11:06 am
for neo nazis that have made the base inside the as of the of blood which is a few 100 meters to the west of us. then you may see the distance a huge smooth screen. that is where a time could be blasting away, has off forces flights as position we met the crew of one such tank as they stopped to rearm and resupply. what's happened year we were hit by an anti tank grenade when a week ago, but the gunner survived you, but i did it, penetrate the tank. it did, but the gunner was really lucky. tanks here. i used to flush out otherwise indestructible ukrainian nationalist positions, but they set up the machine guns and guided missiles at the top of an apartment building. for example, firing had russian troops and civilians without discretion. that's when tanks are called in. of course, there is fear their emotions,
11:07 am
but this is our land where defending our land o that fill all this 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 a night 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 brush and forces making targets of people's homes.
11:08 am
sometimes it works. sometimes as of nationalists just shoot them dead, the horses and we are in a bad state. we've been living in a basement since march tanf. sometimes we're sticker heads out. our building was on fire. it took a day to put out the blaze on the 1st floor. everything was destroyed with the national split up into groups of 10 or so people that took a positions in housing blocks. they 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 lower floors. that's where basements are usually crowded with terrified civilians. variable was always a pro russian city, and people here as seen as the citizens of the didn't yet people's republic much like the tank crew. yes,
11:09 am
i just thought it were waited for so long. our patience is run out. this is my 3rd tank van. shirley will will, when justice is on our side, what we've been fighting for 8 years since 2014, most of the troops here locals veterans who've held back the ukranian army and the increasing hordes of radical nationalists for years. their families have lived under bombardment and shilling for the better half of a decade. and now, is there a chance to end it once and for all, or i'd guys div r t for mario po, that nets, people to republic, russian official say more than 110000 people have been safely evacuated from marielle po with over 3000 residents fleeing to russia within the past day, the embattled cities deputy man, however, claims that many ukrainians who have left on not being evacuated, their being, quote, abducted and forcibly deported western media have been rallying to support them as claim reporting that ukrainian civilians are being sent to labor camps in remote
11:10 am
russian regions are t correspondence. women cause ref investigates. the claims due to the ongoing special military operation in the ukraine schools here are currently closed and their facilities are being used to temporarily. how's the refugees that come in here are from murray? who paul and sell that to go and speak to her, some of them and ask them what they think about the headlines in the west that are saying that there have been kidnapped from their own city by russian military. and then you think that the sim need, doug, it's not like that at all. no claims about people being enslaved or nonsense. i'm here because i ran from the warm ups. we get food hair 3 times a day and were treated well with understandings, relatives in russia, expecting many of the people here. they come and pick them up from the checkpoint of me there was a machine. yeah. i feel outraged because those hard lines are complete. nonsense,
11:11 am
i'm going to moscow with my granddaughter to get away from the how where we're in to live. i left in the basement for 21 days. we had nothing to $830.00 but didn't it, brad for 2 weeks or so we decided to walk tank la metis to the order of man or 3 families now grisly. we tried very hard to get an advice. no one forced us. we'll have our passports in our hands, a folder statements to the country allies wellness. and i've rarely seen any western journalist here in don boston. why that picture coming out of the nest people's republic is sometimes very skewed, but it's not inside a true because there's some western journalists. i have been the be 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 guess if people have family or friends in this side have done dentist, they can just go there freely. no one really checks the camps are there for the
11:12 am
people have nowhere else to go. people are leaving to russia. jennifer chung but this notion of local people being drafted off to skip russia does not. murray was the experience i've found speaking to people. daily outrage is probably the best word to describe the feelings of the refugees here in the nest for the right from a reasonable outrage about the western headlines the 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 of finally. and so they can return back to their homes and live and normal peaceful life. human cosser of hearty don't ask. kimmy wise watch has called on key have to investigate the alleged torture of russian prisoners of war. as in response to footage published online last week,
11:13 am
the claim to show ukrainian force is shooting, captured russian competence in the leg. and i can show you the disturbing video in full due to ethical reasons. the alleged incident has been condemned by the kremlin as a violation of international law, while ukraine's president's office originally promised a prob only for keith to then describe the video as russian propaganda. while flatter, denying reports of torture, political commentators on break my doubts, there will be any impartial investigation of the footage. as you go, they have gone dogs of other renting. it seems to me that the incident is fearless in the videos. but of course, i mean the problem is in the you the situation, you don't have an impartial but the judge in these things are lose one claim against another. you have received a u. n is going to make this investigation that the u. n. is on the official from the united states, and there's only one goal is to pull out of the company as long as possible. we
11:14 am
don't care about the trillions. we just want to assure you of these things and who's in the new one of the much lead thomas after that was and the head of the russian space agency roles. cosmo says co operation on the international space station maybe in limbo. if sanctions continue to be imposed on russia space industry, this was in response to letters from western colleagues in which russia's demands to lift sanctions were left unanswered. ortiz donald course, had joined me earlier with the details. dmitri regoza is definitely not happy about the responses he received from western space agencies to his demand, to lift the 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 robins letter to the governments of the e. u. member states. however, waiting around for the bureaucracies of 28 different countries is not something that the head of ross cosmos is prepared to do. instead, he said that it,
11:15 am
that the west needs to realize that it needs russia for anything and everything in connection to the international space station, boom goose, hulu. they need the international space station without the russians. they cannot come there because no one but us can deliver fuel to the i assess with no one but the engines of our kauger shifts can correct the position of international space station dodge in space, debris integral, but nobody's getting rid of the sanctions to the sanctions. on the radar. now, what does the future hold for the international space 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 recalls. and in his most recent letter reiterated that 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, basically
11:16 am
a deadline to and full cooperation with these western space agencies. and to for review, that's already gonna be sent to moscow very soon. as for the current contracts that are in place, i mean, we don't know what's gonna happen with them. there's still not enough details to understand. but another thing that we're garzon said he actually voiced his frustration at completely unsubstantiated rumors that were going around the western media accusing russia of planning to abandon. american astronaut mark vonda high on the international space station. let's take a list, new through some of our partners cleaned at russia and ross cost must decided to keep the american astronaut inova. and they're not even joking for them in all seriousness. the, even as far as we know, informed his mother this such a misfortune had happened and by the evil will of the russians. he would now forever fly in space. of course, at 1st were to this with great surprise then it cost me retention lar because nothing but speculation. inappropriate hands of the lack of integrity of russian
11:17 am
colleagues is behind this. needless to say that astronaut did return from the i s s safe and sound earlier in the week. this is what 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 are the ones that you actually run rushes, mission, control station, as well as the firm that produces, i use rocket the most widely used in face 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 low ver tomorrow 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 cosmic drop in cars extend. so with these recent developments, unfortunately,
11:18 am
it looks like the future of space travel is not looking so good. the un secretary general spokesperson condemns britain, the censorship of russian media outlets, including our p, suggesting the measures violate quite the right of journalists to do their work everywhere. today, the u. k. government announced her sanctions against a number of 1st states russian state media, including journalists, those sanctions who employ and as, as, as it's freeze 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 fir, 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,
11:19 am
to do their work for everywhere. well, as our to the british government announced a raft of new sanctions found that russia news network r t would quote, not be able to find its way back on u. k. televisions. let's take a look at the british governments reasons for imposing the ban. russia might be 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? archie 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 after seeing videos of russian prisoners of war being shot in the legs. have urged the soldiers to abide by the geneva convention,
11:20 am
the hardier pro criminal narrative at the neo nazis. it is indeed true that all he 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. the whole book was a shrines, a far rice extremism. they had celtic crosses, swastikas, and white power symbols was also an unhealthy obsession with nazi germany. yes, that was a clip from the u. k. 's pride enjoy the b b c. and no, it's not a one off. one report worried about the increasing visibility of fall, right groups in ukraine. why one interview even compared the situation to the rise of naziism in 1930 germany. there's also this b b, c news night program called the neo nazi threat in new ukraine. this guardian video about a fall right children's camp. and this time video called inside
11:21 am
a white supremacist militia in ukraine. in fact has a comprehensive list of articles written by the western press about ukraine's nazi problem. funny, but i do 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 opinion of neo nazis think again. western media reporting on ukrainian nazi back in 20142015 are today calling this russian propaganda see what the very outlet wrote. 8 years ago in 2015, the new york times described ukraine's dissolved battalion as openly neo nazi to day. and why tease, anton troy and off ski describes as av as far right. what happened? did i resolve 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
11:22 am
a ukrainian game i went to the 2nd accusation leveled against r t is that generally, it amplifies moscow's lies about the wall. curtains 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 whether acids seized? were they taken off there? or did they just get away with repeating the mantra of this fabled weapons of mass destruction, o 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 the conclusion. virtually all of the news coverage accepted without serious question the political formulation, weapons of mass destruction as
11:23 am
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 weapon systems mention. but given 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 and play with this action, 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 blink hurt. officials hell bent on conflating, anything remotely rushing with wrong with these latest sanctions. the u. k. has made 2 very simple points. freedom of the press sunni applies to your press
11:24 am
untruths or lies only when they come out of russia. international energy agency members have agreed to release the oil from their reserves and in effort to bring down prices with the measures. the pay to notes have had an immediate impact . some of the lack of information about the amounts of oil being provided. us president joe, by them previously announced an unprecedented use of oil reserves in response to widespread criticism about the sky rocketing prices. ortiz, rachel blevins, has more details. this is the 3rd time president by then has approved a release from the u. s. strategic reserves. and this time around, it's a $180000000.00 barrels that to be released over the next 6 months. now by the saying that this is a way to tackle some of those storing gas prices. however, he has been met with heavy criticism, both from experts in the field, and even for former president donald trump. it's supposed to only be used for large scale emergency or conflict. now i see where bitin has just announced he's going to take what we so carefully and magically built and what will be
11:25 am
a futile attempt to reduce oil and gasoline prices. they will soon bring it down to empty again. it just never ends. now the by an administration has tried to celebrate this move on twitter with the white house chief of staff, even saying just how historic it is. however, that criticism has followed them to social media and many have been quick to point out that even though this is never been done before, there may be a reason why it has never been done before. you guys are actually bragging about having to release record amounts of oil from the strategic reserves akin to the historic al, if from afghanistan, the biden admin's, historic events are unprecedented in their terribleness. this is not what the strategic oil reserves is for. when resident by then came into office, he champion has green energy policies and talked about how he was going to reduce the countries reliance on fossil fuel. so as
11:26 am
a result of that is repeatedly called on opec plus over the last several months to increase production. in order to tackle the storing price, however, they have repeatedly said no. so now it seems like by then is turning q domestic producers here in the us. however, it remains to be seen whether they are going to follow. 2 through with his demand and increase investment on there and in order to increase production. now, if you're wondering whether biden is taking responsibility for any of this, well, he was very quick to say that he blames all of it on russian president. our prices are rising because of food is actually, there isn't enough supply. and the bottom line is if we want lower gas price, we have a more oil supply right now. all across social media. there have been post showing stickers placed on gas pumps across the country. which feature not only biden space, but also the word i did that it's become
11:27 am
a picture of just how frustrated american consumers are with this entire situation . and now experts are saying there's no guarantee that the latest moved by the vitamin ministration is actually going to lower prices on long term. and in some cases it could make the situation even worse, reporting and washington, rachel blevins, r t. for us to implement jim john trav, say it's not the ukraine conflict has caused the rising prices, but rather mismanagement by the by did administration i say really, really say, well from the strategic petroleum reserve will have a small and one time shot of impact on lower prices, but it won't be elastic impact, and once that's gone, there's no more that can be done. it's like a pistol with only one bullet, and that's all they've got. i remember this was going on even before the war, and ukraine started that mr. biden had an act to the number of what they called green energy policies that were really a kind of
11:28 am
a war on oil and gas and other fossil fuels. even when we would take into account ukraine war, it's the response to the war rather than the war itself. that's causing the prices to go up. there was notable inflation going on already before the crane war started . and now it's becoming much worse. many thanks for joining us here in nazi international will be back at the top of that with the latest se, then ah, what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic. development only i'm going to resist . i don't see how that strategy will be successful. very political time to sit
11:29 am
down, talk ah,
11:30 am
[000:00:00;00] with the boys. so it was gonna snow up studio similar to. yeah, i don't know that i will take is dealing. yeah. for next year it is a 3 is that there is any fish,
