9:03 am
a serious condition. on wednesday, the russian defense ministry has said that most who could target caves, decision making centers, if ukraine keeps bombing russian border regions, locals and browns have told of how their houses have been destroyed. as a result of these attacks. this enough love fell asleep then through a lot of cry to lightly. everything has been exploding there. the neighbors have a bomb craters. the house was also hid the beams broke in the barn. oh, blue. when there was an explosion, i was lying on the couch. glass rained down, i fell to the floor, flowerpots that were on the window sill, fell on me a yard. do me bell. i was in the house. then i went out on the porch. it's good that i didn't reach the gate, otherwise i would have been lying here. when i came out, i saw a blast wave that was like this way. will you do me? we were in the house. we looked out of the window. there was dust everywhere and then it started shaking it. i went to another house, there was black smoke there, that was the one that was burned down and where a woman was injured. now meanwhile,
9:04 am
fighting in the devastated city of maria po, continues with the russian defense ministry, claiming ukrainian troops have been surrounded. ortiz, senior correspondent, more gasdio, has been taking a look at some apartments in the key ports where a nationalist forces were hold up at every crossing on every street in every yard, the scars of battle are apparent. and today we followed in the footsteps of ukrainian nationalists as they tugged people's homes into firing ranges. as ukrainian troops retreated deeper into the city. they would then we single residential building. they would break down the doors into apartments to set up new foreign positions. again, drawing fire on these apartments on themselves, leaving people with no way to leave. tens of thousands of civilians now live in the
9:05 am
basements of their apartment blocks. it's warm of a one, but also much safer that up stairs is another apartment's in a residential building. that ukrainian nationalist set up a foreign posted will over the pay all over the place, bullets empty shell casings, but also here a primed grenade launcher. it has been prime to the as i said, it may have malfunction, but it would be very dangerous to touch it. or disturb, but in any case, this is the job, the sap of the high you are the better the view, the father you can see and shoot even if you have to climb over the heads of civilians. really what visibility there were nationalist hiding up in the top floors over there snipers to one of them shot at people walking down the street. he
9:06 am
just kept shooting but missed. a young woman walking by was in absolute shock. she hid in a local shop for osmond with come. we sat in the closet and prayed to god because any one of those shells could have hit our apartment when we didn't understand who they were shooting at. there was no one here. no soldiers, no separatist of no russian troops. they just kept shelling here from the factory. everywhere you'll find magazines unexploded shells, bullets, even grenades that failed to designate. and occasionally the vile syringes and beals, that fueled nationalist regiments. here is another apartment broken into by ukrainian nationalist that had a great view out of this window and they set up a set up a foreign position here. a variety of caliber was empty shell casings, but also as in many places that we visited empty syringes, apparently the end of
9:07 am
a vile. he had no idea what this was, but in many of these places, apartments the where they were at station where they fought from where there have them been drugs that were seized by the, the nets police that have cleaned up the place off to them to an extent, but we know for a fact that you can in nation so heavily, dependent on on that means this is something we had seen in syria in the rock, whether it was isis fight as will syrian rebels. they, they would take these uncertain means and they could keep going without sleep without rest, without food or drink or, or water. for days and days very, we found drugs during the inspections captured ukrainian soldiers admitted that they use drugs to make it easier for them to fight. the population of mario upa was always seen as pro russian by ukrainian nationalists. for years they tried to beat and bully loyalty into the locals. the music, the liver,
9:08 am
2 of my friends were having a drink. and nationalists walked up to them and told them to say, glory to ukraine. one of them refused, so they broke his fingers. this isn't a story from the internet. this happened to my friend from him. but that went both ways. the civilians here never understood the fanatical habits of as of and other nationalist battalions. i knew from sierra they were all tattooed and they had these rituals. they had these torchlight marches over there. they also had rights. they even put up a fence so people wouldn't see what they were up to. the end result was utter disregard the civilians among nationalists, they never saw the mazique bulls, his fellow countrymen and women. but as fodder, human shields expendable bodies for the glory of ukraine, or i'd gazda of r t for murray. you pull well, and that's not all which more it's been revealed. the canadian military has helped
9:09 am
to train soldiers from the nationalist as of battalion. it's led to condemnation, including from human rights organizations. now we'll be covering that in more detail just later in the program. and meanwhile, would go to the address of the wife of the arrested ukrainian opposition leader victor madrid shook. she has slammed the detention of her husband and criticized the ukrainian government. her words came during a press conference here in moscow. and it is the village shuttle. they crossed the line, the situation got out of control. i want to emphasize once again that victor met, van shook is not just a citizen of ukraine. he is a people's deputy of ukraine. he legally continues to fulfill his duties and he represents the people to day. so it's not only him, but these 2000000 people were beaten. and today they are also kept behind bars. i emphasize once again, i oppose torture violence against all political prisoners. what is happening to victor as human disgrace?
9:10 am
i beg you to carefully look at these photographs. there are no signs of damage in any of the photos yet. the next one shows large bruises and bruises that they tried to cover with hair, which means that these pictures were taken at the beginning and during the interrogation. there is no doubt that he was beaten in the 1st hours after his arrest. now on your screen's the photos of victrum advert shoak posted by the ukraine by the ukranian, excuse me, president. on day of his arrest president lensky said he'd been detained in a special operation. you can see he is handcuffed in the photo with signs of beating. clearly visible on his face, it's still unclear if the opposition leader was captured weeks prior to this photo . now victor, madrid shook is a ukrainian politician and one of the leaders of the opposition. he had played a key role in negotiations between ukraine, russia and the people's republics of been that's and lou ganske from 2019 and until
9:11 am
his arrest he was the chairman of the pro russian party in care of his wife. also complained of how all opposition media channels have been completely shut down in ukraine. this 6 channels were closed before i left ukraine. as far as i know, all tv channels are now closed except for one. this is the only platform. this is a country with one channel that lensky control. there can be no more alternative opinion. what freedom of speech. this is no longer journalism will. meanwhile, russia has announced it has captured several military personnel from nato countries who were fighting as volunteers in ukraine. one captured british volunteer to come to ukraine long before the war. rupture has claimed the inhuman treatment of ukrainians by their own soldiers was for him. quote, the 1st time seeing reality,
9:12 am
him a warning. his words may have been made on the duress will be sent to you, not someone you fail flemming really trying to reach and i think you're correct. and from day one, when we went to murder you pl. i always said like, we need to leave because because as i said before, done thus, right is recognized as independent and glanced as well. and if, if ukraine really wanted to avoid this conflict, they could have easily just said ok, we will leave, we will recognize independence. it was like 1st time seeing reality, they looted from like supermarkets, like civilians need food to survive after like in circles. and so they would take like food from the supermarkets,
9:13 am
they would stop civilians from going out to get water like like in a supermarket that was being looted, they would stop civilians from taking like water, stuff like that which they themselves were taken. now the pentagon is upping its supply of arms to ukraine after president biden announced an additional $800000000.00 in military assistance to the country. footage from an air force base in the us state of delaware shows, weapons systems believe to be javelin, anti tank missiles being prepared for shipment. the armaments are being sent to the ukrainian military, but as doing quarter explains such weapons are ending up in the hands of criminals and extremists. another $800000000.00 of us military aid on route to ukraine. that's on top of the billions of dollars worth of weapons that the west has already sent. and for some reason,
9:14 am
nobody seems to care about where these guns are actually going. there is the real threat that the ukrainian government can potentially not control all of this weapons. where exactly is anywhere. well, key i've been handing out weapons to random people on the street with no military experience since the beginning of russia's military operation. ukraine's leadership also thought it would be a good idea not only to release felons onto the chaotic streets of a war zone, but also to give them guns. one moment william was tongue under martial law participants in hostilities ukrainians with the real combat experience will be released from custody and will be able to compensate for their guilt in the hottest spots of the war. all sanctions lifted from those people who took part in the anti terrorist operation. the key now is defense. these people aren't all thieves who stole candy from the corner store. many of them were convicted of murder, ideal candidates for soldiers who will respect the laws of war. i guess it's not
9:15 am
exactly the time for key to be picky though, since, according to its own military, 15000 ukrainian troops have been killed in the conflict so far. at the same time, russia destroys more of ukraine's command structures with every passing day. and the outcome we're starting to see is chaotic and out of control wyoming citizens in a disorderly way, as is currently the case the you transforms them into fighters and therefore also into potential targets. furthermore, without command, without operational purposes, the distribution of weapons inevitably leads to settling in schools, banditry and actions that are more lethal than effective within ukraine. a number of volunteer battalions with ambiguous loyalties to kiev have already begun stockpiling these weapons. but beyond the countries borders, there is no telling to what extent these arms will help international weapons traffickers. even before all these guns were released, ukraine had one of the largest markets for illegal arms in europe. there are 2
9:16 am
primary sources of elicit small arms and ammunition in ukraine. the diversion of domestic holdings and cross border trafficking officials estimated that at least 300000 small arms and light weapons were looted or lost between 201320. 15. of these, only 4000 weapons were reportedly recovered. weapons from eastern ukraine are becoming an important supply source for the black market. according to some sources, key of has long had problems with theft and corruption and it's military. when an official investigation was launched, the defense official in charge of it was court martialed, and that was the end of the matter. none the less t f says it's in control. ukraine's current export control system makes a legal arms transfers from or via ukraine. practically impossible. sure ukraine might say that. but history tells us situations like these and badly look at all the state of the art american weapons that the taliban got its hands on. when it came to power in afghanistan, libya, iraq, syria,
9:17 am
all examples of how weapons plus chaos equals a lot of bad people getting their hands on guns so shore even though the west wouldn't send its own people to fight for its ukrainian ally, it can give itself a pat on the back for flooding the country with weapons, but it remains to be seen what criminal elements the west is once again, inadvertently creating and we'll have to fight further down the line. well now to store we announced previously in the program and that's canada. which has spent around $700000000.00 trading the ukranian military, including its top fighting force, the nationalist as of the battalion that despite earlier pledges by candidates, defense minister that ought to would not help the regimen which he claimed was just a small group of quote unquote rotten apples. about 2000 members of the ukrainian national guard conducted training as part of canada's bid to help keep strengthen its forces. photos posted by ukraine's military on social media. clearly show some
9:18 am
soldiers wearing as of battalion patches that they are as the trained with canadian service members or 2 has tried to distance itself from the group and its neo nazi links with the defense ministry insisting it was kids responsibility to check which soldiers were taking part the canadian armed forces have never given any training whatsoever to members of is off italian service men participating and operation unifier, have always been ordered not to train with members of these up battalion and not to have any contact with them. while we spoke to dr. efraim zoer off the director of the human rights organization, the simon, the son phil center in israel. he believes the actions of the canadian armed forces amount to negligence. the flag, the problem is that the canadian defense ministry did not do proper diligence and
9:19 am
did not fully verify exactly whom they were training. and you know, they want to spend millions of dollars on a, something is nebulous as, as trade a bunch of guys, they have no idea who they are. i mean, this negligence there, certainly people don't know who don't want the money, spent the taxpayer money spent training, training, neo nazis, the so the site is the law, today's a minority in the troops. and they're all part of this of the regiments where the survey, so there's no question about their identity, problematic ideology that they have. but the question is how much, how much influence these people are at and whatever, whatever it is. ready they should the western troop, so any to should not be training them. those who knows of it directly back down to one direction today when it gets to the direct us later on. it was exactly
9:20 am
8 years on thursday since k of announced what is called an anti terrorist operation . in the dawn bass, it came off to the turbulent events in the ukraine's capital key of known as the euro. my done, which saw the overthrow of the government, where if an ocean has been taking a look back. 80 years ago, k of announced what had called an anti terror operation against its then eastern most regions of denotes and logans, ukraine's own regions. the reason there disobedience to caves, new rulers that came to power after the brutal events known as euro. my don and the overthrow of the president with
9:21 am
traditionally have enclosed ties with russia. the area known as don boss in east and ukraine accused kids new authorities of russo fabia and refused to recognise them as a legitimate power. and to government protests raged in all major cities in the east here branded the regions separatists. when the anti terror peroration was declared, i was in danielle, and 4 months later travelled all across don boss. it was a full scale operation with abbey asian tangs, heavy artillery and thousands of boots on the ground involved. while it was supposed to target terrorists, innocent civilians, often elderly and kids, became victims of this blood emission. the would you do with you or do we is we need, you wouldn't deal him with renewed she would you?
9:22 am
but you would give it to you, but i did. did call my ok. or bob, i have a robot nuclear browse quarter year ago when you of the, brought all military operation against its own people, burned the bridges literally and metaphorically, for any peaceful solution between kia and the countries east. that tragedy in the black sea of a death became the final straw. ah for 8 years, the slaughter of so many civilians in the dawn boss has gone almost completely unnoticed by the international community. since april 2014, the ukrainian side has been shelling residential areas in the 2 self proclaimed republics using heavy, offensive weapons. at least 5500 civilians have been injured. more than 2600
9:23 am
civilians have been killed. more than 2200 objects of civilian infrastructure were destroyed or damaged. for 8 long years, russia called time off to time for a peaceful resolution to the conflict, but that lead to key as always fell on deaf ears. uminski, the misc agreements were killed long before yesterday's recognition of the people's republic of dumbasses and not by us, not by the representatives of these republics, but by the current authorities in key have ukraine's current president vowed to finally end the war. but escalations continued and hatred also grew. the republics backed into a corner, seemed to have little choice, but ask their big neighbor for protection. but helping them russia is also secure in its own borders and interests. mosca says ukraine strongly anti russia policies, and it's alarmingly fast, milder is ation posed a serious threat to russia's own national security. and it was determined to do
9:24 am
something about it that you'd give folks a demilitarization and denot suffocation of ukraine or a compulsory component of the agreements. we have 2 days on both sides have lost many lives, both military and civilian, and seem to be close to losing hope for a quick and non military solution. the aim was to try to be empty. my movement, which was eastern ukraine, south to print and yeah, which was interesting on the operational, the beginning of the search of april. is that what the security concept you're made, the decision to stop is to tear operation. dca was, was at the table which is officially recognized. and so the question is where the decision from ukraine or u. s. a. from the point of view of her operation. this was a nice name to cover that they started to war. i really don't want to call it and
9:25 am
teacher operation somewhere because it was you don't pick a deter operation with the tanks and planes to bump cities. this was a wall from the very beginning started by key against the dump bus. after my done know, your trading government was able to make any decisions without the u. s. 75 percent of the civilian casualties because of ukrainian harvey. this is something leslie media doesn't want to show, but we know that the u. s. a don't care what she will. again, victims look at the iraq. there are 600-0021 1000000 people. died the operations of the u. s. a. and after that, it's quite obvious that the u. s. a wanted to warn you, said ukraine, for one simple reason. from the political interest, the u. s. u. s. wants to divide your claim from russia and what can divide to countries better than the civil war, which if the russians the best against your trading government or vice versa, ah,
9:26 am
well, moving on from the events in ukraine over in britain, authorities could send tens of thousands of asylum seekers to the east african country of rwanda. aiming to break, they say people smuggling networks and stem the flow of migrants across the english channel. we must ensure that the only route to asylum in the u. k is a safe and legal one. those who tried to jump the queue or abuse our systems will find no automatic path to set them up in our country, but rather be swiftly and humanely removed to a safe 3rd country or their country of origin. while anyone was arrived in brighton illegally since january 1st could now be relocated to rwanda. its hope that would disrupt the business model of people smuggling gangs. but the plans drawn strong criticism from opposition parties which have condemned it as costly, unworkable, and unethical. the, the un, excuse me, refugee agency, also voiced concern people fleeing war conflict and persecution
9:27 am
deserve compassion and empathy. they should not be traded like commodities and transferred abroad for processing. first with it's pretty and humane. it's cruel. we've got people that struggled from wherever to and then cross the channel and like little boats to get there. and yes, yes, isn't a problem. i think they had over a record number of immigrants coming across across the channel last year, like over 280-283-0000. but then to send them back to africa, to rolanda. a place where the refugees, the while they're doing processing. they probably have no, no relation maybe different tribal cultures different regions probably be controlled to some degree there as well. it. busy some type of camp
9:28 am
how do they live? i don't know. will they be put on the work on the farms? yeah, it's definitely i think a very, very concerning thing of the human right side. maybe maybe a cost effective, but definitely an inefficient way to actually deal with the refugee issues and, and cost and processing in the as well. ok. while turkey has sought a large, the neutral stance since the start of the war, while the country has continued to send drones and ammunition to kiev, ankara has also mediated peace stalks and called for a cease fire o r t is except a boy who has been taking a closer look at turkey is very delicate, political balancing act. they are pursuing their own interest and it's true that they are not pro russian, they're not pro ukrainian, they're being pro turks. then the war is good for the military industry. the
9:29 am
request for bacteria, drones has increased dramatically. many countries are looking into buying that technology because it demonstrated itself to be very, very efficient on the ukranian front lines. but on the other hand, turkey has a very burgeoning, very luxurious trade with rush. i think it's somewhere in the range of $33000000000.00, for example. there trade with your brain is roughly 7000000000. so the turks are pursuing our own interest. plus they want to be given the role of a major not only regional, but global player. i'm pretty sure that president or the one really wants to be the one who settles this conflict on he over the past weekend, he once again extended his invitation, both to present put an end president landscape to go to turkey for direct negotiations. well, i think they had doing very well in settling that old grudges,
9:30 am
both with with nato and more specifically with the united states and the european union. because i've actually seen a couple of major commentators suggest the the issue is trying to undermine mr. add ons, piece, making efforts because he's calling for peace. that's a police turkeys. official position. we've heard they had of the european diplomacy, suggesting that there could only be a military solution to this conflict. this is the 1st time in history that they had of you. diplomacy ever said something like that. they've never heard that in li, being syrian yugoslavia. so it's pretty interesting how the tables have turned. i was interviewing one of the major turkish analyst day, and he said like, i couldn't have imagined that even a year ago, you know, all the russian outlets and how band in the west the, you know, despite it's supposed to diligence, to media freedoms. but they're all free to operate in turkey. turkey also portrays .
