1:04 pm
but it is ending. most of mario bell has been liberated fighting. he is now centered on the left bank of the city. and i wrote acc, seen here under a monument to the troops and the soldiers who fought in the 2nd world war, who threw back the nazi hoards again. the grand children are doing much the same here in mary opal. fighting back the thousands of as of nationalists and neo, for neo nazis that have made the base inside the as of steel blood, which is a few 100 meters to the west. of that you may see the distance, the huge smokescreen. 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 re supply. what's happened year we were hit by an anti tank
1:05 pm
grenade. when we hit on about a week ago, but the gunner survived you, but i didn't 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 me selves at the top of an apartment building. for example, firing had russian troops and civilians without discretion. that's when tanks are called in last night. of course, there's fear their emotions, but this is our land. we're defending our land, hulu. silvo. 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
1:06 pm
a tank ease ah, throughout mary opal, you'll find hundreds of civilians day and night outside their homes. those who refuse to evacuate. they keep shift 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. the horses, hey, we are in a bad state. we've been living in a basement since march 10th. sometimes with sticker heads out. our building was on fire. it took a day to put out the blaze on the 1st floor. everything was destroyed is the upa. the national split up into groups of 10 or so people that took positions in housing blocks that came here and sat up in the night. you can tell where they've been by
1:07 pm
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 low floors. that's where basements are usually crowded with terrified civilians. mario bull 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. again, yes, others that we've waited for so long. our patience is run act. this is my 3rd tank van. shirley will win justice is on our side. we've been fighting for 8 years since 2014. most of the troops here, a locals veterans who've held back the ukrainian army and increasing hordes of radical nationalists for years. their families have lived under bombardment and shelling for the better half of a decade. and now is their chance to end it once and for all. or i'd guys the of
1:08 pm
archie from variable that he had people to republic. poems prime minister has admitted that e u sanctions on russia don't work after the rubel bounced back to pre war levels. the p. m also accused brussels are failing it in its goal of crippling rushes economy. some either is treating the sanctions as a smokescreen for their inaction. the sectors are supposed to bring a grand peace, not a busier of guilty conscience. the sanctions are supposed to stop britain if the heroines it means that they are not robust enough. and the sanctions are already back firing on europe itself. castle farmers in spain have been destroying unprofitable livestock, as animal feed price is skyrocketed due to the loss of russian supply. russia and ukraine had exported almost a 3rd of global wheat fertilizer and other key products in the food chain. meanwhile, the kremlin says british energy multinational shell will no longer be able to buy
1:09 pm
russian gas due to london sanctions. the u. k is the only state to have sanctioned a gas from bank though way through which payments are made. a professor and political communication at turan universities told us western sanctions are short sighted. this policy making in the same countries, especially the united states, that they look at the short term, short term interests. sanctions generally don't work, the hurt the ordinary citizens in the targeted countries and they are designed to create to regime change. so the idea is that you put pressure on ordinary citizens to get tired, they come to the streets, they change the government. and at the end of the day and this policy of regime changing, associate other countries is going to fail. and in fact,
1:10 pm
the countries that are under pressure from the list and the united states, including russia, including china, including you, are going to join force and are going to have a united front against the staple policies. and i think at the end of the day, the big losers are going to be the countries that impose this type of economic war and others. meanwhile lithuania essays is the 1st the ear country and gas from client to completely free itself have ration gas in pause for me. u. s. states senator bruce marx at st. brussels will double down on antique moscow sanctions, certain congress in europe to depend on russia an oil gas. i would emphasize for now. i think that would you're going to see, as you're gonna see a change in energy policy in these european countries, germany, hungary, and i think that you're going to see a much lesser dependence on russell oil and gas going forward. i think they're either going to source or oil and gas, you know,
1:11 pm
eventually from other countries. or i think that you're going to see a change from dependence on oil and gas to the other energy. i think that the economic consequences of the sanctions will really have minimal effect on the west . and i think that they'll have a much more significant impact on russia. i think that you're going to say, no russian companies being able to western stock exchanges in europe in london, in the united states. i think their access to capital is going to be significantly decreased the reference to polish prime minister earl player will. you know, it's slightly supported right now because of the actions that are, that are being taken by the russian central government to require payments and roubles. but i think over time you're going to, you're just going to see that the bank significantly very significant. think about
1:12 pm
human rights watch is calling on key of to investigate. the alleged torture of russian prisoners of war after footage published on line last week claimed show ukrainian forces shooting captured competence in the legs. and we can show you the disturbing video in full due to ethical reasons. the leg incident has been condemned by the kremlin. he has received mixed rhetoric from ukraine. decision was taken to hand over captured russian troops to their mothers if they come to collect them in ukraine. unlike putins fascists, we ukrainians are not waging war against mothers and their captured children with the brochures not to remind everyone that abusing prisoners of war is a war crime that does not carry amnesty on their international law and does not have an institute of limitations. so we are
1:13 pm
a european army over european country. we treat prisoners according to the geneva convention, no matter what your personal emotional motives may be. me, mistakes videos with inhuman treatments of russian prisoners of war by the ukrainian military are being distributed in those discredit. the defense forces of ukraine. i know that the service men of the ukrainian on forces strictly of the international humanitarian law. we need proof in the military from the ukrainian side guilty. we will investigate them and take them to court. it is important that these types of videos and that any treatment that may happen be stopped immediately. mm. ukraine complies with all the rules for the maintenance
1:14 pm
and treatment of prisoners of war in accordance with the geneva convention, that's reports that someone tortured someone. no single fact has been confirmed. these are movies that the russians themselves are making and then spread in the fakes. ah! we spoke political commentators, young brake non to dance. they will be any impartial investigation of the footage. i suppose they have gone dark and renting it seems to me that the incident is here and i have seen the videos. but of course, i mean the problem is in the, in the situation. you don't have any version. but the judge in these things are least one game against another. you have to see you and is going to make on this investigation that the u. n. is under pressure from the united states. and you know, there's only one goal is to put on the company as long as possible. they don't care
1:15 pm
about the children's and just want to address question, you know, these things and who's really no one on the much later, much after the war ended or un secretary general spokesperson condemns britain. censorship of russian media outlets including r t, suggesting the measures violates quote, the rights of journalists to do their work everywhere. today the u. k. government announced sanctions against number of 1st states, russia, 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 bilateral sanctions being imposed, or during this conflict we feel we are, our field is really the un un imposed sanctions. as a matter of principle,
1:16 pm
we'd very much do believe in the right of journalists to do their work for everywhere. that's all for the british government, announced a raft of new sanctions dialing the russian 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 bush government reasons for imposing marcia might be the most sanctioned country in the world, but it turns out there's always space for more. the u. k. government 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 off to seeing videos of russian prisoners
1:17 pm
of war being shot in the legs. have urged their soldiers to abide by the geneva convention though heartier 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. the whole bo was the shrines are far right 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. kay's pride and joy, the b, b. c. a. 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 to situation, to the rise of naziism in 19 thirties, germany, there's also this b, b, c, news. my program called the near nazi threat in you ukraine. this garden video
1:18 pm
about a fall right children's camp. and this time video called inside 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 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 meat is 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 the new york times described ukraine's as av battalion as openly neo nazi to day. and why it is anton troy, an off sky describes as of as far right what happened to dissolve, complete a special training program that takes open neo nazis and turns them into
1:19 pm
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 tour and have 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 raw pool to the public, sanctioned weather as it 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
1:20 pm
and bringing the 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 weapon systems mention. but think 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 blank. heard officials hell bent on conflating. anything remotely russian with wrong. with these later sanctions, the u. k. has made 2 very simple points. freedom of the price only applies to your
1:21 pm
press untruths or lies only when they come out of russia. the west seems to have failed in one of his stated goals with sanctions to hit support for president pearson. on the contrary, and overwhelming 83 percent of russians now approve of his actions. last time the president's approval ratings were so high was in 2014, when crimea voted to rejoin russia. this latest survey by the respected nevada sensical, the views of 1600 adults across the country. over the last several weeks. the head of russia's leading public opinion research center phase. the west's confrontational stance is field in the trend proceeding mutual over the past months, the period of the military operation and acute conflict between russian in the entire western world. putin's approval rating as president has significantly increased amongst russians. the growth is about 15 percent. the fact is that in the 1st phase of the operation, many in russia worth of loss must,
1:22 pm
why all this was needed. while this blood, these victims, but speeches and addresses by the european union, the united states and allies around the world, along with these infernal sanctions, quickly put everything in its place. even those who doubted russia's military actions, but did not know how to assess them, quickly realized that it was not about ukraine. it was about russia's conflict with the west, a conflict with long standing roots in which russians of course, are on the side of the country, and potent in this sense stands as a symbol of rushes. independent policy is determination to preserve its sovereignty and to protect its interests despite difficulties and problems. but i think this is the main reason for the support. the russians are now giving the president the us senate has passed the therapy, a piece, and stabilisation act, controversial bill, and punishing those responsible for alleged the trustees in the east african
1:23 pm
country. we not only shine a light on the extra judicial killings, mass, sexual and gender based violence, force displacement and civilian humanitarian aid blockades as being used as weapons of this war. but we also take a big step to end these atrocities by setting up a policy framework that calls for a determination by the secretary of state related to war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. a critical element in holding perpetrators accountable legislation introduced last november and orders by joe biden, for c sanctions against individuals that the u. s. alleges are fueling the conflicts. the bill has sparked control of a say with claims the us is over stepping its bounds and meddling in the affairs of a country. beyond is traditional sphere of influence, an expert on african politics and economy. lawrence freeman accuses the u. s. and attempting to undermine ethiopians, independence have nothing to do with
1:24 pm
helping you monitoring the condition or pieces of your korean sanctions being threatened, which will haunt your people and even more dangerously. the legislation attempts to you, sir, the sovereignty of the open secretary and the secretary of state claim there was genocide. no n provided claim was ethnic cleansing, no evidence has ever been divided. this is typical of where the geopolitical stablish uses to attack countries around the world. where the geopolitical establishment freighter is independent, political leaders of sovereign nation. and that's why they're harassing, undermining it will continue to undermine real argument. so here though i spent more story to be found on our website r t dot com with all the back in the top of there was more
1:25 pm
ah ah ah, what he's got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on, often very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successfully, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk ration of achievements of world renowned russian ballet dancer rudolph, new day of. now we've discussed a little bit about this in preparing for this interview. was a good friend of yours and you actually say that he's more of a family member. that's correct. yeah,

1:27 pm
but they must say particularly. and yet, jackie, as i called her and on the greek cosy way. and as she is the person who organized than they had the idea to do really a festival, to honor, she's person in his own country as he owner, also his own country all over the world. and in the difficult times, we don't forget that because really what he did, it is unbelievable. all over the world to bring a country around. never, never know what you have now. you see what he did, so no one could have done it. tell me a little bit more about his legacy. how is his memory still alive? and what was he like as a person, as a person, that was a real area exotic acrobat is the definition that they can give to him for him. it is, it's yours with the elegance of
1:28 pm
a little bird with incredible muscles his head. and when she wasn't jumping, he was not touching that earth magically was staying there. people would see him without patching her smack. and when she was that he had the elegance of those incredible, a wide animals that no human has that he had. and also the magic and the magic air of for his personality, his spirit, his soul, his heart. and his incredible power. because he was a very, at tremendous strong character, strong character with himself because he all their past his humanities, possibly his human is his human but needed this. you have a past every limit. and only way america lafleur of real a real incredible and didn't amusement energy. you can succeed to that normal people never. they can arrive to that to result. he was of a passing,
1:29 pm
any possibility that he, himself, he had. and he was so severe with his sam with himself that really this is the reason that he was alternately if and this is or is, is the reason for with special persons in special are these are they are out because they other pass the human limits. it is a moment of magical 2nd that you have that cosmic energy that lifts you up in the now. well, when we were talking earlier, you mentioned how beautiful russia is, how eclectic it is. and it has its different cultures and it brings it altogether. or can you tell me a little bit about your memories of russia then? and how is it contrasted with your idea of russia? now, i will tell you something, to be honest and sincere. i am always very spontaneous and very since yet. i cannot have a good opinion for before because i have never been in russia
1:30 pm
before. huh. i knew about russia. i knew of russia. i knew everything, of course, culture and everything this. but i knew everything because of maria, because he was always from morning that he was getting love with the child that you would have the bottom of the child with the leaves that pe, he would see, he was very superstitious of he would see how they were posed to see what it would be, he was just plain like a, like a child with incredible enthusiasm that only children they do have. but i must say something then before i can not say. but what i have discovered in the st. petersburg has only been once to see of course, out of me that but only 2 days. it is not enough. i saw it on my badge. and that said, but now that i could have because of the opportunity of this festival of murray,
