3:07 pm
with phil. oh. good. 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 mario bull, 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 brushing forces, making targets of people's homes. sometimes it works. sometimes as of
3:08 pm
nationalists, just shoot them dead. the horses any. 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 a day to put out the blaze on the 1st floor. everything was destroyed with the roof, the national split up into groups of 10 or so people took up 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 as 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. 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, a gun. yes, of course, violet. we've waited for so long. our patience has run out. this is my 3rd tank van
3:09 pm
. shirley will, will win. 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 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 there chance to end it once and for all, or i'd guys the of archie from mario book that he had people to republic, human rights watch his calling on care of to investigate the alleged torture of russian prisoners of war after footage published on line las vegas claimed to show ukrainian forces shooting captured competence in the legs. they can't say that he's studying the deer in for you to ethical reasons. the alleged incident has been condemned by the crown and yet his 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 potent fascists we ukrainians are not waging war
3:10 pm
against mothers and their captured children with the brochures about to remind everyone that abusing prisoners of war is a will crime that does not carry amnesty on their international law and does not have an institute of limitations. we are 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 cranial on forces strictly of the
3:11 pm
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. the ukraine complies with all the rules for the maintenance 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 his fakes. ah! we spoke to political commentators, john brake, man who doubt say will be any impartial investigation of the footage. as she was
3:12 pm
a day of so gone, daughter was at renting. it seems to me that the incident is fearless in the videos . but of course, i mean the problem is in, in, in the situation you gotta have an impartial body judge in these things. so this one claim against another. you have to seem to you and is going to make this investigation that the u. n is under pressure from the united states and you know, there's only one goal is to pull all the conflict as long as possible. we don't care about the trillions. we just want to umbrellas for sure. you know, these things are usually no normally much later, much after that was ended. poland, prime minister has admitted that e u sanctions on russia don't work after the rubel bounced back to pre war levels. at p. m also accused brussels of failing in its goal of crippling russia economy. some e leaders had threatened the sanctions as a smokescreen for their inaction. the sanctions are supposed to bring your grand
3:13 pm
peace not to appease your of the guilty conscience. the sanctions are supposed to stop working. if they haven't, it means that they are not robust enough. and the sanctions are already back firing and europe itself cancel. farmers in spain have been destroying unprofitable life stock. as animal feed prices sky rocketed due to the loss of russian supply in 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 russian gas t to london sanctions. the u. k is the only state to have sanctioned gas pump bank 3, which payments on made a professor and political communication at turan university told us western sanctions are short sighted. this is a problem that we have in policy making in the countries, especially the united states. that they look at the short term,
3:14 pm
short term interests. sanctions generally don't work day the ordinary citizens in the target of countries. and they are designed to create a 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, especially on other countries, is going to fail. and in fact, countries that are under pressure from the rest 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 on others. meanwhile, i think that the rainy i think, is the 1st e country and gas pump client to completely free it,
3:15 pm
south of russian gas them ports. for me, you i states senator bruce mach saves brussels, will double down on antique moscow sanctions certain congress in europe to depend on russia and oil gas. i would emphasize for now. i think it would you're going to see is 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, 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,
3:16 pm
in the united states. i think her access to capital is going to be significantly decreased the reference to polish prime minister. earl player 2 will, you know, is slightly supported right now because of actions that are, that are being taken by the russian central government to require payments and rubles. but i think over time you're going to, you're just going to see that the bank significantly very significant. think about you. you foreign policy cheese form advisor has spoken to ortiz going on the ground . alastair croak warned many europeans will find it hard to even survive the sanctions, its own leaders in post on russia. he still wants to full version on a web site, author dot com, his a preview. it was only in the beginning of march, the french finance was saying, our aim is to collapse the russian economy. and now one month later
3:17 pm
we see in the financial many commentators talking about this is beginning of the end of the global monitoring system. does shillinger and russia together have the kind of infrastructural clout, to be able to save the world from global famine? russia is the key of all commodities, food resources, oil, gas, precious metals. everything comes from russia. europe cannot manage as it is. they cannot get gas from anywhere else that will substitute for russian. yes, that's just obvious. i don't see any sign that the europeans did pay me, gave any thought to the strategic consequences of what they were doing. some of the sanctions on russia have affected important areas of fertilizers, other things that are necessary in food production. certain gas is necessary
3:18 pm
also, and people are going to feel a huge amount of pain. the costs of gas and electricity like can the you are going to go up 50 percent. they've gone up 50 percent. they'll probably call them up 100 percent before the end of the how people live with this. the sanctions in many ways . europe as not sanction russia, it's sanctioning. and so the, the head of the russian space agency was cosmo says, cooperation on the international space station may be in limbo and sanctions continue to be imposed on rushes space industry. this is in response to letters from western colleagues in which russia belongs to lift sanctions, were left unknown, said he is donald course, had joined me earlier with details. dmitri reagan is definitely not happy about the responses he receives from western space agencies to his demand,
3:19 pm
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 where goes in 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, that the west needs to realize that it needs russia for anything and everything in connection to the international space station increase moves. do they need the international space station without the russians? they cannot come there because no one but us can deliver fuel to the no one but the engines of val kauger chef can correct the position of international space station doors in space, the very intricate, but nobody's getting rid of the sanctions. so a sanction on the radar. what does the future hold for the international space station cooperation? 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
3:20 pm
letter reiterated that to restore full cooperation with regards 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 with basically a deadline to end full 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 vonda high on the international space station. let's take a list, a new 3 mostly some of our partners claimed advice, 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,
3:21 pm
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 we took this with great surprise, then it caused trim 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 the 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 levelled against russia that included a number of firms that are connected to russia space agency. these firms among them 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
3:22 pm
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 its launch of dozens of satellites from the bike and cosmic drawn in cars, extend. so with these recent developments, unfortunately, it looks like the future of space travel is not looking so good. the un secretary general spokesperson condemns britain censorship or russian media outlets, including all he suggesting the measures violates quote, the whites 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 bilateral sanctions being imposed,
3:23 pm
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. last, after the british government announced a raft of new sanctions, vowing that russian news network party would quote, never be able to find its way back on u. k. televisions and 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? r t has propagated pro kremlin narratives around the invasion of ukraine,
3:24 pm
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, the hardier pro criminal narrative and 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 shrine for 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 and joy, the b b. c. and no, it's not a one off. one report worried about be increasing visibility or fall right groups in ukraine. why one interview even compared to situation to the rise of naziism in
3:25 pm
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 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 or 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
3:26 pm
day and white is anton troy. an off ski describes as av 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 raw pool to the public, sanctioned whether acids seized? were they taken off there? or did they just get away with repeating the mantra of those fabled weapons of mass
3:27 pm
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 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 faction. 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
3:28 pm
a media echo chamber from being orchestrated by blink 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 press only applies to your press untruth our lives only when they come out of russia. things pending us journalists told us the west's move to ban russian news outlets has dark implications for open reporting. port. this is just a selective and an attack again on russian media and i think this is all really stemming out of fear because of course, censorship reveals fear. so i think there's a lot of fear on behalf of the western entities, politicians, officials and the military of the true getting out. and so that is why they have to silence and put sanctions on russian outlet. what interestingly the west, the u. s. and the u. k claim to care about free speech and the free press. they
3:29 pm
like to say this during different press conferences and speeches. but if you look at the actions taken by the government in the western world, they really don't care about free speech in the free press. i here we have again the u. k, the u. s. claiming that moscow was in no position to report on the conflict in ukraine, which is absurd. russia has every right to have a media outlet into report on these issues. and then it also does big the question as to whether or not the b, b, c, for example, within a position to cover iraq and afghanistan when they outright lied about weapons of mass destruction. for example. not only was this completely false, but it was intentional deception coming from the b, b. c. again, complete hypocrisy. when you, thanks for joining us here in asi international. as always, you can find plenty more stories on our website to all see dot com. ah
