one of the main obstacles towards achieving peace. so the sanctions have now swung back to hit. the initiators themselves and vladimir, put in, says the west sanctions against russia have backfired on their initiators. as europeans struggled to cope with skyrocketing costs of living, we discussed the issue with a panel of yeah, the top put from this particular economic sanctions are actually the poor calling on people to shower. last or last, i think it's more insulting to them all comes to eat than anything else is really backed up. a whole lot of people will tolerate that kind of situation with broadcasting live direct from our studios in moscow. this is our to international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us are now showing is reported on
12:02 am
the front line and don bass with an verified footage that logo is posted on social media, purportedly showing attack on ukrainian positions. the explosions have also been reported in the major ukrainian cities of hark of. and nikolai of ukraine's president zalinski has said the quote, the battle for the bus has begun. moscow has not confirmed that claim that is not going to show. 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, my buddha, more or more i got the reports from done. the ask about the latest the updates and the dunbar from minds. well,
12:03 am
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 dumbass, the havoc of in the north. well, that is a claim that has been made, but by president zelinski along with, with several experts there has been footage and verified as of yet online showing these launches, showing missiles and artillery shrieking towards ukrainian positions. also images of exclusions designations on the ukrainian side, but not quite as many as we show on the 24th of february. when the celebration i kicked off, of course the, the epi sent a political and military api said to of what is happening ease in mary opal for now the spot. the fact that in mary's bill that was about $20000.00 to so you created
12:04 am
nationalists and, and regular army troops. in the dawn bass, which ukraine believes russia wants to surround. there are as many as 100000 ukranian troops battle ready veterans of the 8 years civil war in east and ukraine . we have spent most of our time in mary, you both watching the ukrainian nationalist that thousands of 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 lost most of the residential areas that they controlled and
12:05 am
all those 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 coming in from the nationalists themselves that a so i'm a new owner, 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 is just several 100 people. and most of them are supporters and relatives of the nationalist fighters trapped in mario pl. earlier while in mario. but we went as far as just outside the as of steel, industrial complex. there we spoke to fighters, we saw the, the booms of smoke rising into the air, and the fathers there told us that they believe soon. this'll be over as the situation for nationalist ease, critical,
12:06 am
broader the ruler. there have been many civilians in the city whom the nationalists have been using as human shields. that's why we couldn't shoot at once, they retreated to the factory. we easily took it under control. at the each factory per russian forces are still clearing away minds and booby traps left behind by ukrainian troops said nationalists, they are still finding new caches of weapons and ammunition sometimes worth millions. yes, i love you. oh, room of the brain ego. i shall whom auntie and miss all glove. also abundantly. go to be careful. oh, stop fall of shoulder launch and hear me sounds again, the same things he gluck missiles just left them to vanden here, dozen aces full grenades,
12:07 am
as well as various rockets and munition. there are dozens and dozens more warehouses and buildings that haven't yet been cleared, including collapsed ones. here are ukranian armored vehicles, which they hid inside buildings, industrial buildings in the each factory and thought the vast industrial zone at the heart of mario full again, these, these vehicles were hebrew inside civilian areas where ukrainian nationalists also will cover in the industrial zoom. they held hundreds of people as human shields, workers, and nearby residents, aside from holding civilians as human shields, they slaughtered them if they tried to run and even poisoned water supplies as they fled the mosquito. the lead been leaving 5 liter containers with water in apartments, but the water was poisoned with drugs or toxins. the spot,
12:08 am
the damage done. the fanatical corps of the ukrainian as of nationalists here, unlikely to surrender. they knew the crimes that they all wanted for. they knew that they face decades in prison, and they have chosen to drag lease out hooping to buy enough time for the ukrainian government to somehow save them. while most western media outlets seek to demonize russia over its military operation in ukraine and the dumbass, a prominent tie and journalist has gone against the flow, accusing ukraine's president's lensky of hindering efforts to establish peace as gimme, simple and natural to pity. 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
12:09 am
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 overall, the talks are still ongoing. the impact came after reported killings of civilians in the key of the suburb butcher. earlier this month, that you and us were quick to accuse russia of war crimes after images of dead bodies on the streets emerged in the media. moscow has been 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 dunbar republics long before the war. if a proper diplomatic solution were truly sought for. and if the lensky truly
12:10 am
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 in the entire problem. there is no interlocutor on the other side for, for the russians to seriously negotiate a treaty 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, i 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. vladimir putin says russia has endured the west's latest
12:11 am
economic onslaught with the rubel strengthening back to its pre conflict levels. despite the sanctions, the russian leader pointed out that such measures have actually backfired against the u. s. and e. u. as regular people struggle to cope with skyrocketing costs, that i should will not close the book. 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 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 we decrease of their living standards, the 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
12:12 am
of february and is being defined by a positive trade balance. you leaders have suggested that people cut down on their personal spending in an effort to cope with the certain prices as western governments seek to cut and 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 in german newspaper has said that skipping a shower might also help reduce dependence on russian energy supplies. but some you officials have admitted that the sanctions against moscow are having a severe effect on the cost of living in europe. as france struggles with its highest inflation rate in 3 decades, there are warnings that potential energy sanctions against russia could burden europe even further. ahead of these 2nd round of the french presidential election opposition candidate marine le pen has even demanded that washington compensate france for economic losses. if the u complies with u. s. recommendations for energy
12:13 am
sanctions against russia. news, it doesn't even show us wants to stop the pole 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 i can't imagine the us paying such compensation. even if i wanted to do that, the republicans from britain of our so i can't imagine that happening toward 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 as this. i don't think there's any question about that. mostly or countries have supported the u. s. is in union there, tennis elected. then that's out of the book that will break down to some degree and we'll see what happens with the rest of the countries. but i think it's been
12:14 am
a real attempt to keep nader together to get your opinion union to get over 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 found 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, but comes amid soaring fuel and food prices in europe. as western sanctions hit brushes, transport an energy supply lines. we discussed the effect of anti rushing sanctions with a g kumar, jaw research editor at india today. and political analyst keena who drew and a political analyst at the university of care from mohammed mirandi. i think the europeans under estimated the resilience of the russian economy, which is quite foolish because they should have known from their experience with
12:15 am
the rom that sanctions targeting women and children basically are not going to bring him out the sort of change that european americans look for the you, the european countries are not in a position to impose sanctions or russia in particular on energy sector, usually as the importer, not to the ext port ex portrait which suffers the most if there is a disruption of this energy supply. and this is what's happening to the european countries, the some photos from this. what decal, economic sanctions are actually the poor. it's the poor who gets the major blunt of it. and the biggest plus the leaders in the ural 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
12:16 am
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 leader speak in that sort of language, i'm calling on people to shower last or to eat. last, i think it's more insulting to the bulk of society than anything else. and normally people who will probably take him or her seriously are you lease like themselves when the harsh reality bites the people's leaving standard? i think, you know, as we fun out in the u. k. i some other countries probably as time goes on, people is really of a whole lot. people will tolerate that kind of situation with a refresher writing price, this will be all, you'll flip prices,
12:17 am
for example. it's really a matter of time and the people, i think the governmental will feel the pressure from the public. now to the middle east, where tensions have been rising as nato member turkey has launched a large scale offensive across its south eastern border into iraq targeting kraidish nonsense there. the turkish defense ministry released this video of air strikes against kurdish forces, saying it was conducting an offensive because kurdish milton's had been 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 unquote, plans ahead of the cross border operation. the offensive came after us congress members met with senior turkish officials in east on bull. on monday, there has been a storm of criticism at the u. k, the newly announced plan to deport masses of migrants to the east african nation of
12:18 am
rwanda. it has raised allegations of double standards, as the government rejects asylum seekers from africa in the middle east. while simultaneously welcoming refugees from ukraine, u. k. government rightly provides asylum refugee ukrainians, flea 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 national responsibility as a country formed by christian values. because sub contracting out our responsibility even to a country that seeks to do well like her wanda, is the opposite to the nature of god. who himself took
12:19 am
responsibility for our migraines 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 rolanda thousands of kilometers away from the u. k. rwanda has said that it would receive $120000000.00 pounds sterling under the agreement funds supposed to vide, quote, opportunities for rwandans and migrants. meanwhile, the total number of ukrainians who have fled, the war is estimated at around 5000000 people with neighboring poland. taking in a substantial portion, poland has provided refugees with commendation and to financial support. both the government and regular citizens, as polls have opened their homes and raised funds for arriving ukrainians. but as
12:20 am
port frances has unfortunately noted, ukrainian refugees have been much better received than migrants from other parts of the world. suggesting a potential double standard changed 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 developed. we are racists, we are racists, and this is bad. political sociologist, unit abbey, you said that double standards in the treatment of refugees based on whether they're from ukraine or the middle east and africa is unethical. we've seen how you screaming and refugees have been welcomed, which is good actually in, in a way. but that doesn't mean that the other migrants or other refugees coming from other countries who happen to be of the darkest skin are coming from the global south, shouldn't be discarded. the treated like criminals, dealing with this issue just ship in my room abroad,
12:21 am
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 the u. k. is doing is basically not ethical and does not help solve the problem. it wouldn't make it worse, actually not within u. s. interests. that's how the white house has reiterated that joe biden does not plan to send american troops to ukraine, to quote, fight a war with russia. but the u. s. intends to continue to provide ukraine with military aid, despite moscow's warnings. against that now the white house statement came in response to the suggestion by the high ranking democrat that the u. s. must act against russia to prevent ukraine from devolving into the next area. 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
12:22 am
the history of the 21st century turns on how fiercely we defend freedom in ukraine, and that putin will only stop when we stop in the world knows that the situation in syria is largely default of the united states since 2011. the 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 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'll only exacerbate the fighting years. some of the reason announcements, it is true that we believe will be able to begin a process of training,
12:23 am
ukrainian armed forces on the howitzers that will be a 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 and prolonged they conflict in syria, which created all kinds of refugees and all kinds of suffering. and it's also important to know that in syria, the united states promised 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. meanwhile,
12:24 am
in pakistan, protests continue over the ouster of prime minister iran con. with the latest rally in the country's largest city, karachi, drawing together thousands of people who refused to recognize the parliament's newly appointed leadership con, earlier this month. because the 1st pm in pakistan's history to be removed from office by a vote of no confidence in parliament. he has condemned the mover as a us orchestrated conspiracy against him because of his friendly policies towards russia and china. now the political situation in pakistan remains shaky and cons. successor, reputedly, pro western politician should boss shareef is facing challenges in foreign policy making. pakistani forces in recent days have conducted airstrikes on boarding provinces, enough dentist and targeting the taliban associated t t. p group, which pakistan considered a terrorist organization. at least 47 people were reported killed in the strikes on
12:25 am
the coast and coon, our provinces. it's all about political spokesperson. mohammed name has warned pakistan that there will be harsh consequences if the attacks continue. we heard from journalist java, runa, about the issue. me then find mister has hastily actually said grim d as long history he is, he's been opposing us war inside on the song. he's been opposing spill facts because of the buck, a phone. joining american war also called water, the scatter. he was the one who at one point of time about 10 years ago, he blocked the net supply line from the bucket of another song. an american knew it right in the beginning, or that the, this man is going to cause a lot of problems. well, i think americans were very desperate to have the military mission inside, inside buckets on which the former prime minister simply refused. not a bucket on a separate issue with the 1 dollar bond and that is that they haven't sheltering
12:26 am
a militant groups or who have been attacking can be security forces. so a box on carried on strikes inside of one is on $200.00 on those military groups. this is the 1st time that i have heard, such as likes in which around 30 to 40 people were killed. so of this incident again, you know, jeopardize bucks on size with the new government in kabul, which has been pro barcas on the does it for me more news in let's say 34 minutes. this is our change national. stay with ah ah, ah,
12:27 am
with a, with both both the models you need to do both got nothing smooth with a,
12:28 am
with a, a, with her phone number here. we go to with with
12:29 am
a restore to a one of the most generous and most trusted western concept, even with crane handling the size of history from russia meeting somewhere in the middle of something i'm now joined by for president of the
12:30 am
jerusalem institute for strategic studies. professor invites great to see you. great, talk to you. thank you very much for your time. my pleasure. you wrote recently about the seemingly existential political need to be perceived as being on the right side of history. if we tried to put quality center baganda out of it and look at it from historical and perhaps psychological perspective, what time do you need the righteousness? i don't believe it right side of history basically is the history is written by the victim of the walls. and good narrative, it remains a few, jo is the ones that is defined by the victim. by the way, hitler was not only if you would have put more attention to the nuclear ritual, no longer.
