11:10 pm
the memorial to the soviet red army was toppled during a live stream last month. all monuments that have any ties with the soviet union are subjected to be destroyed in accordance with poland, g communist zation law. the fight against communist relics has also swept across ukraine since 2014 hundreds of monuments dedicated to soviet soldiers have been demolished. there trying to cut any ties to a common legacy with russia. ukrainians have been re naming streets named after soviet commanders and politicians for a little bit of history more than 26000000 soviet citizens died in world war 2. nearly half of them were soldiers. the soviet army liberated the territory of 10 european countries from nazi occupation for more than 100000000 people in those areas. a serbian member of parliament, milos banjo, says that the purpose of erasing the past is to turn people against russia. and yet, does that mean, you know,
11:11 pm
the goal is simply logical to direct the peoples of eastern europe and the ussr against russia. to do this, you need to show that the russians have bad. and how can russia be shown as bad if it made such a colossal contribution to their liberation from the nazi? it's necessary to cut out this part of the story and tell everyone that the russians that occupies for many years and near nazi regime has been developing in the crate. it is being imposed on all ukrainian. they simply do not want anything to do with russia. even a shed pass that they should be proud of. they took christopher to be a for the state id. ology. people in ukraine have been under the propaganda of the media for a long time as school. and people simply cannot hear another point of view. because pro russia media, abandon, ukraine, can you probably get agent? while some western countries are striving to diminish the soviet union's role in the allied victory in world war 2? it off hitler. supporters are getting increasing support in ukraine vogue magazines,
11:12 pm
list of histories most distinguished ukrainians now includes nazi collaborators upon mendera, along idolized by far right extremists in the country. i did it oh, i bun dara revenue by ukrainian nationalists and despised by every one else, at least when they find out about his bro months with adolf hitler. but there is legacy has long been toyed with on the far right fringes of ukraine society. but with the latest i'll been pushed to support key of in whatever this nazi collaborate. hayes being normalized in the mainstream to it was pandora who managed to bring the activities of the organisation of the ukrainian nationalists to a new level in the early 19 thirty's. turning it from an underground opening zation into a liberation movement known in every country where there was a diaspora all the years in exile. he was the leader of the organisation of the
11:13 pm
ukrainian nationalists, which was reckoned within europe and an outstanding theorist of the national movement. and pandora publications, and public organizations spread the truth about ukraine ban. durham headed the most radical iteration of o u n. the organization of ukrainian nationalists there openly and officially fascist roots, maybe shamefully tucked away in media articles now, but back then bunder and his followers proudly wore it on their sleeves. along with anti semitism. the jews of the soviet union are the most loyal supporters of the bolshevik regime and the vanguard of musk of imperialism in the ukraine. jews often referred to by racial slurs within o u. n. weren't the only targets of been dares, fascist discrimination doctrine. russians, poles, gypsies were to be exterminated to, according to one of them dares closest allies and another hero of 21st century
11:14 pm
ukraine. it is necessary to hurry up with the liquidation of poles to their full extinction. villages with soley polish populations are to be burned down in villages of mixed nationalities. only poles are to be wiped out jews, and gypsies, or to face the same treatment, full annihilation without remorse. it's vital to take care of doctors, pharmacists, chemists, nurses, and keep them under watch and field hospitals. when their work finishes, they must be murdered without announcement. hardly surprising adolph hitler chose bonder as his henchmen and chief in ukraine whose organisation is estimated to be responsible for some $100000.00 deaths and banderas blood last knew no limits. the organization of the ukrainian generalists values the lives of its members very highly. but we accept that our glorious idea requires not just a few, not hundreds, but millions to fall victim in order to be implemented modern day ukraine has been repeatedly urge to stop glorifying these people who could have easily added
11:15 pm
a few pages to the rule book of iso al qaeda, but president zaleski thinks it's a cool thing. there are indisputable heroes, steppin band era as a hero for certain ukrainians. and this is a normal and cool thing. he was one of the defenders of ukraine's freedom. and of course there's plenty of ukrainians. horrified by, been there as monuments springing up all across the country. it's just hard to tell how many ukrainians and since any sacrilege of these nazi idols could cost people their lives. amid the war in ukraine and the sanctions imposed against russia un chief says global food and the energy supplies, as well as financial systems, have been disrupted and will inevitably lead to an increase in poverty and hunger in developing countries beyond ukraine's borders. far out of the media's attention, the war has become a silent attack on the developing world. the crisis could plunge up to 1700000000
11:16 pm
people, more than a 5th of the global population into poverty and hunger on a scale that has not been seen in decades. moscow has condemned the western sanctions of damaging crucial global supply chains. russia has traditionally been substantial food export or to many regions in the world, and is also a major supplier of fertilizers used in food production. ukraine and russia together produce 30 percent of the world's wheat and barley, a 5th of the corn, and more than half of the sunflower oil. we heard from arc sam regional humanitarian coordinator, francesco jermanti, about a potential upcoming food crisis. the recent crisis in ukrainian now as a compounding effect, there are crises all over the world. we should not forget that there is a very difficult food security situation in west africa. there is a difficult situation in yemen. any now the part in other parts of the ward,
11:17 pm
it is indeed true that the situation in, in the own of africa and east africa were generate quite difficult. i think there are like some action that can be taken and adopted by the government in the, in the region to make sure that they prioritize intervention to address the younger crisis. and there is something that the international community can do as well. the region including like the effects of coal weed and the effects off the locust infestation. so those are the element that they, they, they are there were the prime cause for days for days. the prizes are injured protesters and police officers and car set on fire. tensions are high in sweetness. protesters continue to take to the streets, to decry and anti is long group known for burning crowns after it was given permission by the authorities to stage demonstrations.
11:18 pm
ah, 3 demonstrators were injured during the latest clashes with police over the past several days. protests have taken place and a number of swedish cities where the far right movement had planned it's events. now the group wants to ban islam with its leader recently saying that it was quote, time to burn the koran. now, despite the violence, swedish authorities have refused to withdraw the permission for the group to hold its demonstrations. now let's take a look at how the latest events have unfolded with starting of the migration immigration crisis in 2015. i think we were really
11:19 pm
flooded by, by me, migrants and we have got criminal criminal t s s, right. the reason there and we see shootings and st and small speech when you city cities, which were peace, poland earlier times. so sweden has changed a lot and yet it's not a really surprised that the people are not happy. they have one of the spence of the gangs that the cities even with hand grenades. exploiting sometimes the something sweet and didn't know 10 years ago and escalation to somehow something which yeah. can not suppress anybody. meanwhile, sweden and neighboring finland have raised concerns in russia as they consider applying for ne no membership. moscow says northern european stability would be jeopardized should both those nor to countries joining the alliance. it's no secret that the territories of these states have long been claimed by nato with large scale military exercise is being held that motives of the alliance are clear. but
11:20 pm
it's unclear while baltic region neighbors, finland, and sweden, one to turn into a new frontier of confrontation between the nato block and russia. the negative consequences for peace and stability in northern europe are obvious. earlier moscow said that if a session by sweden and finland happens, russia will have to reinforce its presence in the baltic sea region by deploying nuclear weapons to it's european ex clave of colon. and glad to quote, restore the balance of power. russia has repeatedly argued that nato expansion threatens its national security. something highlighted during talks before the conflict and ukraine began, but was ignored or dismissed by western powers. during the cold war, sweden and finland decided not to join political and military alliances. however, in the $990.00 those neutral states became part of nato's partnership for peace program, which allows them to cooperate militarily with the block without taking up for
11:21 pm
membership author and blogger, thomas roper says, nato actions compel russia to react depends on these countries on the on the pressure of the u. s. can make on the governments the not nature has already some weeks ago announced that they would be able to take these countries into not within days if they just ask for it. well, russia sees the natal, let's not call it any day, but anyway, some kind of a competitive, whatever, as a risk for that security. so if especially sweden becomes an affiliate becomes a part of natal, this will have a right reaction on the, on the russian side. with maybe new troops near the bottom, 2 for linda or whatever. and also also, maybe of the russians will enforce the fleet in, in the baltic sea when, when sweet joins natal. it's nothing good for the stability in the budget, which absolutely no. russia has imposed an entry ban against a dozen high ranking british officials, citing a hostile stance from london. now the list includes prime minister boris johnson.
11:22 pm
his predecessor theresa may and the foreign and defensive secretaries. moscow says that london has engaged in an unbridled information and a political campaign aimed at isolating russia and suffocating it's economy. now, the, you k has been a main advocate for international pressure on russia over the war ukraine. london has imposed numerous sanctions against the russian economy. and officials and has campaigned for the you to give a russian gas imports. it's also providing care with military aid, including anti tank at air defense systems. it's been revealed that some british nationals are even directly involved in the conflict is since it's weapons, it's age, it's prime minister in person just last week. and now the times has revealed. it's very own troops when it comes to the war, the u. k is clearly offering ukraine far more than just emotional support. so british special forces have their boots family on the ground in ukraine,
