one of the main obstacles towards achieving peace. and the storm of criticism erupt over the u. k. decision to deport masses of illegal migrants to rwanda. as some officials say that it will affect only people from the middle east and africa, not from ukraine. the broadcasting lab direct from a studios in moscow. this is our international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us. right now, ukraine's president zelinski says, quote, the battle for the dunbar has begun with shilling reported on the front line the this unverified footage purportedly shows the shilling of ukrainian positions in the dumbass. meanwhile, explosions for also reported in the major ukrainian city as a park of nikolai of now valencia again says russia has begun
11:02 pm
a long prepared offensive in the dumbass. a claim that moscow is yet to confirm that is more than a constant lot, that we can now confirm that russian troops have begun the battle for the don bass, which they have been preparing for a long time. a large part of the russian army is now dedicated to this offense. no matter how many russian soldiers are brought here, we will fight. we will defend ourselves. we will do it daily. we will not give up anything ukrainian and we do not need what's not ours, but gotcha reports now from don. yes. about the latest updates on the dumbass front lines. well, this claim that sees to of the russian operation here in ukraine has begun earlier during the night during another artillery rocket artillery salvo that apparently stretched across the front lines from nikolai in the south to the dom, basta havoc of in the north. well, that is a claim that has been made but by president zelinski, along with,
11:03 pm
with several experts, but at the, the, the sound that we've heard of rocket artillery and artillery. it isn't quite the same as what we heard in the 24th. when, when the russian operation began proper. nevertheless, there has been footage and verified as of yet online showing these launches showing missiles, adultery, shrieking towards ukrainian positions. also images of exclusions designations on the ukrainian side. but again, not quite as many as we saw on the 24th of february. when the celebration. i kicked off, of course, the, the epi sent a political and military epicenter of what is happening, ease in marybell for now the spot. the fact that in mary's bill that was about $20000.00 to so you creating nationalists and, and regular army troops in the don bass with cha,
11:04 pm
ukraine believes russia wants to surround. there are many as 100000 ukranian troops battle ready veterans of the h years civil war in east and ukraine. we have spent most of our time in mary, you both watching the ukranian nationalists, their thousands and thousands of as all flies is supplied and trained by nato nations. we have watched their numbers dwindle, many of them fallen battle many, many surrender. now at this point, they have foremost entirely been confined to the as of steel industrial side, which is at the heart of the geographic heart of the city. the battle lay easy, still very much ferocious, but the nationalists of loss. most of the residential areas that they controlled and all the civilians, the 10s of thousands of civilians that were trapped and forbidden to evacuate from those areas by nationalists who use them as human shields thereof. now reports
11:05 pm
coming in from the nationalist themselves, the a. so i the no, no uncertain amount of people are still trapped civilians in the as of steel industrial side. but from what we have heard on the front lines that he's just several 100 people, and most of them are supporters and relatives of the nationalist fights is trapped in mario pool. while most western media outlets seek to demonize russia over its military operation in ukraine and the don't bust, a prominent italian journalist has gone against the flow accusing ukraine's president's zalinski of hindering efforts to establish peace. dennis, give me simple and so natural to pity for lensky, seems like a very dangerous character. he is leading a campaign that can actually bring about massive destruction and casualties among the ukrainian people. but this doesn't really bother him. therefore, i considers a lensky, one of the main obstacles towards achieving peace. but we must remember that this
11:06 pm
war, besides everything that we are talking about is a war of the united states against europe. the e. u is the real object of this war. the united states is interested in severing ties between russia and europe, and also china. meanwhile, face to face meetings between russian and ukrainian officials have halted. but the kremlin says over all the talks are still ongoing. ready the past came after reported killings of civilians in the key of suburb boucher. earlier this month, the u and u. s. were quick to accuse russia of war crimes after images of dead bodies on the streets emerged in the media. moscow has dismissed those allegations as a provocation, meant to derail the peace talks. independent political analyst, allison bruno says, zelinski should have made some concessions, including recognizing crimea, and the dumbass republics long before the war. if a proper diplomatic solution were truly sought for,
11:07 pm
and if the lensky truly had the ability and the willingness, and of course the permission to do it, he would have done so before the war began. i don't really think he's in charge. this is the entire problem. there is no interlocutor on the other side for, for the russians to seriously negotiate a 3, a 3 d that would allow for an exchange of territory. and then, and the, the, the agreement not to join nato. but this is not happening so i would expect that zelinski will continue to go along with the statements that he's made so far, which is that ukraine will fight to hold it till the end of whatever the end will look like. so at this point, one can only hope that the fighting goes quickly so that this war can end as soon as possible. now to the middle east, where tensions have been rising as nato member turkey has launched
11:08 pm
a large scale offensive across its southeastern border into iraq and targeting kurdish diligence. their turkeys military has said that it conducted air strikes and a ground assault against kurdish forces alleging the militants were in the final stages of preparing an incursion into turkey. there has been no comment from iraqi officials so far. although some local media has reported that baghdad had been briefed on ambrose plans ahead of the cross border operation. the offensive came after us congress members met with senior turkish officials in a stumble on monday. are not within us interests. that's how the white house has reiterated. the joe biden does not plan to send american troops to ukraine to quote, fight a war with russia. the u. s. however, will keep providing ukraine with military aid despite moscow's warnings. the statement came in response to a suggestion by a high ranking democrat that the u. s. must act against russia to prevent ukraine
11:09 pm
from devolving into the next syria. i deeply worried that what's going to happen next is that we will see ukraine turn into syria. the american people cannot turn away from this tragedy in ukraine. i think the history of the 21st century turns on how fiercely we defend freedom in ukraine, and that putin will only stop when we stop him. the world knows that the situation in syria is largely the fault of the united states since 2011. united states has been meddling in syria trying to expand and expand discontent in the country and ultimately try to topple the government. between 20142017 alone, $12000000000.00 was spent by the united states on trying to conduct regime change and intensify the conflict in syria. if you add all these numbers up, u. s. military and civilian costs in syria over the past 4 years, or at least $12000000000.00. that's
11:10 pm
a lot of money. and it's not clear when those outlays will stop. if the congress is so concerned about not having syria and their situation become something similar to what's on the ground and ukraine, why are they talking about sending more and more weapons? we now know the united states is looking to put heavy artillery into ukraine. that will only exacerbate the fighting years. some of the recent announcements, it is true that we believe will be able to begin a process of training, ukrainian armed forces on the howitzers that will be shortly heading over. that training will occur outside of ukraine. it will be more of a train, the trainers kind of environment, so it'll be a small number of ukrainians that will be trained on the howitzers. and then they, we re introduce back into their country to train their colleagues. these words about not wanting ukraine to become the new syria, are quite hypocritical, and absurd on the part of us leaders as it was the united states that exacerbated
11:11 pm
and prolong they conflict and syria was created. all kinds of refugees and all kinds of suffering. and it's also important to note that in syria, the united states promise there would be no boots on the ground. the by the time obama had left office, he had broken that promise. and there are us troops in syria even up to today. so these words from a member of the u. s. congress, just kind of fall flat for anyone familiar with the situation. let me put in, says russia has endured the west's latest economic onslaught with the rubles strengthening back to its pre conflict levels. despite the sanctions, the russian liter pointed out that such measures have actually backfired against the u. s. and of the u. as regular people struggle to cope with skyrocketing costs, that i should belittle sebu. the aim of the western countries was to quickly destabilized the financial and economic situation in russia to provoke panic on the markets to make the banking system collapse and to create
11:12 pm
a massive shortage of goods in our stores. but we can now confidently say that this policy has not worked. the strategy of economic blitzkrieg has failed. furthermore, the sanctions have now swung back to hit the initiators themselves. i mean, the inflation unemployment rates, the plummeting economic dynamics in the u. s. and in europe, leading to a decrease of their living standards valuation and so on. russia has withstood this unprecedented pressure. the situation is stabilizing. the ruble is now being traded as it was in the 1st half of february, and is being defined by a positive trade balance. new leaders have suggested that people cut down on their personal spending in an effort to cope with soaring prices. as western governments seek to cut russian energy imports, germany's agriculture minister who is a vegetarian, has even suggested that people eat less meat to help them make ends meet. german newspaper has said that skipping a shower might also help reduce dependence on russian energy supplies. but some you
11:13 pm
officials have admitted that the sanctions against moscow are having a severe effect on the cost of living in europe. in france, there are warnings that the you will pay a high price if it imposes energy sanctions against russia. ahead of the 2nd round of the french presidential election opposition candidate murray le pen has even demanded that washington compensate france for potential economic losses. if the new complies with u. s. recommendations for energy sanctions against russia and frances inflation rate is already the highest in 3 decades and le pen wants to change that, lose it as you never know, supreme l u. s. wants to stop the pool of rush and guess it will have consequences to gas and electricity prices will probably multiply by 6 fold for the french. the americans would so liquefied guess and will therefore make significant profits. so they should probably compensate france for the difference in prices, because if you can imagine the us paying such compensation,
11:14 pm
even if i wanted to do that, the republicans renew our. so i can't imagine that happening for ukraine is profit, a certain businesses in the united states in europe, industrial, military, industrial complex and some of the energy companies are making money. i think there's any question about that. mostly european countries have supported the u. s . as in union, their pen as elected then that, that, that'll break down to some degree and we'll see what happens with the rest of the countries. but i think it's been a real attempt to keep native together to get your opinion union together here in the countries, and you're not want to aggravate the united states at this point in time. meanwhile, in the u. k, a new poll has founded that approval for the sanctions has plummeted to 36 percent down from 50 percent last month. furthermore, 54 percent of respondents believe the financial situation in the u. k. has deteriorated since the latest wave of sanctions against russia. this comes mid
11:15 pm
soaring fuel and food prices in europe, as western sanctions hit russia's transport and energy supply lines. we discussed the effect of anti russian sanctions with a g t co marbra research editor at india today. and political analyst teamed wall job and a political analyst at the university of to from mohammed mirandi. i think the europeans underestimated the resilience of the russian economy, which is quite foolish, because they should have known from their experience with the rom that sanctions targeting women. and children basically are not going to bring them out, the sort of change that europeans and americans look for the u. the u. p. companies are not in a position to impose sanctions or russia in particular on energy sector, usually as the importer not to the exports exposure which suffers the most if there is
11:16 pm
a disruption of this and that you supply ada. this is what's happening to the european countries. the suffers from this particular economic sanctions are actually the poor. it's the poor who gets the major blunt of it. and the bill plus the leaders in the euro was claiming that people should be eating less of need and you know, having less or bob, they'll be the 1st one to have ab wastewater in having a full bought the new thing beat every day. people are suffering across europe because of the increased price fuel because of the increase in price of food and because of the general rapid increase in inflation. so when the leader speak in that sort of language, i'm calling on people to shower less or to eat mass. i think it's more insulting to
11:17 pm
the bulk of society than anything else. and normally people who will probably take him or her seriously are he leads like themselves when the harsh reality bites the people's leaving standard. i think that you know, we find out in the u. k. i some other countries probably as time goes on, people is really backup a whole lot of people will tolerate. that kind of situation with a refresher writing price is all, you know, full price is focused on. so it's really a match upon the people. i think the governmental will feel the pressure from the public imposing sanctions against russia would cost serbia dearly. that's according to the balkan countries. president belgrade has come under heavy criticism for refusing to condemn russia over the conflict in ukraine. president alexander voyage has also defended sir b, as continued airline traffic with russia as neighboring
11:18 pm
e. u. countries have been flights. every little thing we earned, we no longer have, we keep flies go into russia out of principle because we are a free country. when you decide for itself, for those who speak to us about bloody hands, because we are still conducting those flights, i have to say shame on you. oh, all of your analysts are also liars. did you cancel your own flights when 19 countries were bumping our country? nobody helped us. nobody. all of you kept silent. earlier, serbia did vote in support of russia's suspension from the un human rights council . that moved sparked protests in belgrade where thousands of protesters were seen holding russian flags and portraits of vladimir putin. demonstrators demanded the government cease all actions against russia. we heard from alexander public, a political analyst in belgrade about how he believes serbia's neutrality is considered hostile by the wes, being neutral in this atmosphere. that's just poisonous atmosphere that's being
11:19 pm
developed in europe. you know, you're, you're considered to be taking the russian side, you know, because the west is now in the motive either you're with us or against us and they only accept neutrality and they do have reverse against us. most of our trade is still with europe. so, you know, you can close off its markets to serbian goods. also lots of european companies, especially german one. so open companies here have. busy plants here and you know, the president of serbia, which is said live on tv, that he's been threatened by various western governments that they would, you know, pull out of either their investments. so yeah, they still have various leaders and we're various instruments to, to blackmail us. you know, that i can't use a better, wasn't that there has been
11:20 pm
a storm of criticism at the u. k. is newly announced to plan to deport masses of migrants to the east african nation of rwanda. as raised allegations of double standards as the government rejects asylum seekers from africa and the middle east, while simultaneously welcoming refugees from you. buquet government rightly provides asylum refugee ukrainians, flee in war, but wants to send other seeking asylum, thousands of miles away to rolanda for processing. and you still question whether this heartless, tory government is institutionally racist. such arrangements simply shift asylum responsibilities of aid international obligations and are contrary to the letter and spirit of the refugee convention cannot carry the weight of our lash no responsibility as a country formed by christian values. because sub contracting out our responsibility even to a country that seeks to do well like veranda,
11:21 pm
is the opposite to the nature of god. who himself took responsibility for our migrants trying to get to britain illegally in recent years, have resorted to dangerous efforts, organized by people smugglers hiding on trucks or fairies and even trying to cross the english channel and inflatable boats that appear hardly see whether the new deal would see such migrants transferred to rwanda. thousands of kilometers away from the u. k. want to have said it would receive $120000000.00 pounds sterling under the agreement funds supposed to provide quote, opportunities for rwandans and migrants. meanwhile, the total number of ukrainians who have fled that the war is estimated at around $5000000.00 people with neighboring poland taking in a substantial portion. poland has provided the refugees with accommodation and financial support,
11:22 pm
both by the government and regular citizens. as polls have opened to their homes and raised funds for arriving ukrainians, but as pope francis has unfortunately noted, ukrainian refugees have been much better received than migrants from other parts of the world suggesting a potential double standard tinge with racism. it is true, refugees are subdivided. there's 1st class, 2nd class, skin color. if they come from a developed country or one that is not develop the racists, we are racists. and this is bad. political sociologist, eunice, are you says that the double standards in the treatment of refugees, based on whether they are from ukraine or the middle east and africa is unethical. we've seen how you screaming and refugees have been welcomed, which is a good action in, in a way. but that doesn't mean that the, the other migrants or other refugees coming from other countries who happen to be of the darkest skin are coming from the global south, should be discarded. the treated like criminals,
11:23 pm
dealing with the issue just ship in my room abroad, will not solve the problem again. just turn in the blind dyna situation and shifting the responsibility on other countries which are already kind of the burden of the development and problems of the on what the case doing is basically not ethical and does not help solve the problem. it will make it worse, actually. 37 minutes, that's when i will be back with another full infection is says our international, whatever with the i look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given by human beings, accept where such order that conflict with the 1st law show your identification. we
11:24 pm
should be very careful about artificial intelligence. and the point obviously, is to create trust rather than fear a various job with artificial intelligence. real summoning with a robot must protect his own existence with a gun and these are not or as much. and i think a has made their mistake holdings. it's always bullied, there'll be no, there'll be. and despite those a worse space providing to claim, but no single american soldier clusters so grand
