10:03 pm
5 ukrainian soldiers have reportedly surrendered to don. yes, republic forces remaining fighters are still holding onto the sprawling territory of the industrial plants. their exact number is unknown, but they are reportedly in short supply of ammunition and food. russian lead forces say that they have been making very cautious moves towards the enemy position. but i got the reports from the battleground. i find me with a moving out close to the out of still an industrial complex nature for norco afford with just fine those buildings with infantry can only do so much against fortified positions. heavy armor is called in for the
10:04 pm
heavy lifting and the troops. chechen volunteers, in this case, no where the weak points are. right now, these are the fibers, are covering this tag cru. they're receiving targeting directions from troops here on the ground once once they have those, all 3 star girls that do its job. once everything is agreed, the action begins that his thou in position has a target inside attack is not true that the initiative withdrawn h a b m d heavy vehicle has now taken place firing. nationalists to keep them keep the price up day in day out for weeks on
10:05 pm
end, fighting for every building, every floor, every room after the heavy vehicles finish up, the infantry moves in. digital de la la task is to follow the soldiers and provide cover for them. yes, we are on the lookout for any enemy movement. every one knows exactly what they doing closely. the as off nationalists in the industrial soon at the heart of the city are in sorry, shape. they're short and food, water, ammunition, and morale. russia has repeatedly offered them a season and the chance to surrender. the nationalists have refused. in some places . ukrainian troops were found shot in the back by their own as they attempted to surrender. it is clear that despite their situation, he has off, nationalists mentality, has not changed. and the most fanatical of them are still very much in charge.
10:06 pm
more i'd guess v a r t. from mary you book. it is reported that russian soldiers have managed to evacuate more than $120.00 civilians through the safe routes from the as of south industrial area. meanwhile, kremlin spokesman, dmitri prescott says, russia has sent a new draft agreement to give to resolve the conflict, and is now waiting for a response desk of caution that t of has so far been reluctant to work out the details of a potential arrangement with moscow. russia is that military says that they have successfully conducted a test launch of a new ser, much intercontinental ballistic missile of the missile is said to be capable of carrying at least 10 warheads to potentially hit a target anywhere in the world. russia is now preparing a regiment to operate this arm out system. once the initial tests are completed. vladimir putin congratulated the missiles developers. the boy's school is name and
10:07 pm
that this is a big event in the development of advanced weapon systems for the russian army. the new complex has supreme tactical and technical characteristics and is able to overcome any existing missile defense systems. remember, it has no equivalence anywhere in the world and there won't be any for a long time. this truly unique weapon will reinforce the combat potential of our armed forces reliably and show russia security from external threats and make those who in the heat of frenzied aggressive rhetoric a trying to threaten our country. think twice that i see a prominent italian journalist, a contributor to major national outlets, has suggested an alternative view for the ongoing conflict and ukraine braking with the western establishment media narrative. he says that the u. s. is to blame for the war. but the remedy go to that, she sites, everything that we're talking about here 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
10:08 pm
ties between russia and europe. and also china course, we're interested in talking to him. we managed to do so and get some insight on many of the aspects of conflict. and my make that a better look of each other little. technically, it's russia that unleashed the war. but in my view, it's the united states that prompted russia to do that. it stated a number of provocations, including with nato expansion. the united states figured out that it's losing cloud as a global hagaman. so it's behavior is a kind of a reaction. it definitely doesn't want to put up with its new role amid a shift into paula centric world. in my view, zalinski is now the main obstacle to achieving peace. it's obvious that he's ready to sacrifice his country in his people in order to stain power. he's also hindering a diplomatic solution if we want peace talks to succeed, then the compliance with uminski agreements should be the starting point, but zelinski as opposed to that sort of, i think that to day we're seeing 2 wars being fought simultaneously. one is being
10:09 pm
waged with arms bombs and missiles on the battlefield, whereas the other is unfolding in the media with newspapers, television, and the internet. and the latter one is no less serious. media outlets are being shut down and deploy to we can arrival power. zelinski himself basically silenced the opposition. so it's not correct to say that the war and defense of zaleski equals a war in defense of democracy. i have never before seen must media acting as indecently as they do now. i'm struggling for the truth. seeking to my own opinion without buying into the official version of it. my daughter was in crimea during the referendum. she worked. there is a photo journalist and sent me images showing people as joy about returning to russia. that the referendum embodied a national unity that it was considered liberation back then, while covering the situation and the dumbass, she managed to survive miracle asleep while her 30 year old colleague was killed in
10:10 pm
a mortar fire. she was very upset to see the violence that the authorities and key if used against the people of the don bass. your sanctions never heard governments . in fact they heard the population and because of that they are moral. they are also inefficient if their objective is to shift power and moscow. furthermore, the sanctions have already impacted european economies. the italian economy has already suffered and its going to get worse. only the united states will manage to get away with it. probably for now the you doesn't see that i'm surprised by how shortsighted our politicians are wiki leaks, founder julian assange is now one step away from extradition to the u. s. as a london magistrate's court has ruled in favor of the move, it's now up to britain's home secretary to confirm the decision, which would be a sancha headed over to the u. s. where he faces up to 175 years in prison on espionage charges wiki leeks, editor in chief christian preference and says,
10:11 pm
the latest ruling could essentially amounts to a death sentence for such. 16 months ago this quarter, i could, i didn't know songs would mean a risk to his life that it would be equal to that sentence. now this court has been ordered. issue that sentence. that is what happened here today. not unions alive is in the hands are pretty bottle and borders johnson. they need to do that. i think you need to make sure they do the right thing. they have the power to stop it . to end this, to save a man's life and stop this attack on the freedom of the press. julian assange has adamantly and repeatedly denied the allegations against him. the london court had earlier admitted that a sonnet might face her treatment in american custody. we got reactions from political commentator could work on motion and international journalist, richard metters,
10:12 pm
who says the political motives underlie the decision to extradite the font as fundamental principles of freedom of speech are compromised. this is very obviously a political political trial. honestly, given a pretty patel's policies, you know, i don't, i don't really hold out much hope for science because it's just last year where she was trying to make recommendations that journalists in the u. k. be in prison for up to 14 years for you know, publishing government secrets, things that embarrassed the government. so i don't really think she's much of a, of a friend of freedom of the press. again, i do hope she does the right thing because she, she, she has the power in her hands right now, as does more as johnson to take a stance for press freedoms to show that the u. k is not working at the past of the united states and to stop a, you know, a journalist being shipped off to face to centuries and jail and western are countries on the governments are moving gradually into authoritarianism. they are not going to condemn themselves by pardoning julian as font or, or, or stopping the extradition of julian assigned. they're all in one team. julian
10:13 pm
assange wasn't, i, is towards any country. he published documents that condemn a lot of government, and it is only the united states that is trying nowadays to extradite julian as to the united states. and this will be a death sentence for him. and this will mean, in my opinion, the end of the so called freedom of press and freedom of opinion and expression that the united states bragged about and says that it is spreading this values around the world. so we cannot really tolerate this talk anymore that the united states championing this freedoms around the world because it has killed it. it has killed it with this case against 1000000 assange montenegro has become the latest nation to follow the use crackdown on russian media banning coverage by r t and fellow russian news agency. sputnik that's as the balkan fate strives to become a member in the block. and the measures prohibit local broadcasters and internet providers from allowing content by russian media outlets remove complies with an
10:14 pm
earlier decision by the huge a band r t and fellow russian news agencies put think over what the block said is, quote, systematic information manipulation about russia's military offensive in ukraine. from all of this, we can class to a new belgium mileage who is a serbian american journalist and senior writer at r t. thanks for being with us as always. so, montenegro follows the you in banning russian media outlets are transport next. for example, to what extent you think that this is an independent decision? oh no, it's not an independent decision at all. i mean, montenegro is a tiny little country of less than 700000 people and it's, it's government is basically entirely propped up by nato. not even that you just, it's a nato vassal, so to speak. and has been ever since to declare independence. 15 years ago, the truly sad part is that this is, this is the embodiment of
10:15 pm
a low local saying in those parts that you know, a frog saw horse getting shoot and raised its foot to try it. it's laughable mountain. i mean, or he doesn't even broadcast in montenegro and suite. he does have a service in serbian language, unlike r t. but you know, batting penny media is not something any government wishing to be taken seriously should be doing well then months. negro actually wants to join you. is that correct? that is correct. well, a lot of countries aspire to it. it did join nato, relatively recently, so it's hoping to be a package deal. to me, it's sort of absurd. you know, it was part of you was lobby for the law for decades. and part of you know, in a joint state with serbia and all of these states that are, are rushing to become independent. 990 have basically just traded their nominal
10:16 pm
independence for being a vassal of the u. s. so it's not really about independence. it's about changing masters. russia's ambassador to montenegro has actually previously said that the balkan country is sacrificing its relations with russia for the prospect of membership in the u. what's your opinion on that? it's an east versus west. it's sort of a thing happening right now. but is that a good idea? no, so what, what would my daggers did? what the governments want to make it even worse? because they're, by doing this, they're spitting on themselves and their own identity and their own history. a few, few people know, but montenegro was saw pro russian back in the day when it was even before it was internationally recognized when it was just the principality ruled by the ottoman empire. that it actually in 1900. no 5, during the russo japanese war, it declared war on japan and sent volunteers to fight in the far east with the russian army against the japanese. and that state of war persisted for like
10:17 pm
a 100 years until 2006 when it declared independence from serbia as the newest, you know, european country and japan recognize it said, oh yeah, by the way, that whole state of war we didn't really notice. but if you guys want to make a peace deal, we'll do that. but i mean, this is, this is the extent to which they've been pro russian and you know, a brotherly nation to service and all. and ever since 2006 div basically been denying that destroying that identity. and this is sort of the crowning rule in that path of destruction in order to forge a new identity of montenegro, which unfortunately isn't even genuine. it's basically just the cringe knock off of rober to creation, naziism, devotion, knowledge, serbian american journalist and senior writer at r t. interesting to hear thoughts. and again from a unique perspective that, that thanks for being with us. thanks john. now while the west flashes out
10:18 pm
at moscow with sanctions cutting, some russian banks off from the swift international payment system fellow bricks developing countries, brazil, india, dana, and south africa are planning to have an introduction of their own financial system with russia. russia's finance minister says the system will help countries shift away from the dollar dominance and create a buffer against shocks. in case of a global economic downturn, rich countries also planned to use their national currencies for import export operations and more closely integrate their bank card systems. director of the geo political economy research group believes the shift to the new financial system can be successful. i think they're going, they may founder, they may make some mistakes here and there, but they are going to find a way and let me just make a tiny correction the europeans in launching the euro was the 1st set of countries . and in fact, it goes back a long way back when the dollars ling to go was broken in 1971. that was when the europeans began. a long journey to was monetary union who spoke was,
10:19 pm
was precisely to eliminate the dollar from their mutual payments. the euro, euro doesn't look in great shape right now. but that is just the way these things work out. so i think the russians, the chinese for the indians in many ways different countries are trying different ways in which to assert their independence from the dollar system, which has been extremely destructive. because the donor system rests on a sort of of a bed of financial ization, which is precisely what has been doing the 2 biggest economic, 2 biggest sorts of economic damage to the world. number one, increasing inequality just such an extent. that demand remains a problem in the world. and number 2, ensuring that the vast, that vast amounts of money, we just rushing around the financial system. i not invested productively, but are rather invested in speculation. and parasitical creation on the,
10:20 pm
on the incomes of a, of those who actually work for a living donor system has been deeply contradictory from the start. people just talked as though the dollars dominance was completely natural when they forget is that it has required, as i said this, this, this, this, this foundation of a financial ation which has been destructive china is increasingly providing alternative trade partnerships, alternative investment relationships and alternative payment systems and other such infrastructure. and of course, the russians the, this, i'm not, you know, i'm just saying that china now provides a competing goal. and so you can, you know, in a certain sense, you can look at and look at the map of this, the americans and european, you know, acolytes, i try doing what they're doing. that is putting sanctions in russia, et cetera. in order to scare the rest of the world into coming and becoming part of
10:21 pm
that system you know, into, into believing close to the west. in reality, the effect of these action is to actually not unite the world under the domination of the west, but actually to divide the world between a small part of the world, which is essentially the old imperial core of the world economy. which is centered around the decaying financial lives predatory speculative american economy. and on the other hand, the rest of the world which consist of the vast majority of the was countries and over helping majority of the was too late, which will be centered around a more dynamic china. and of course, in russia and china get closer together as seems to be the case, then it will be a very awful deal. busy because what china has, in terms of its labor force, et cetera, and what russia has in terms of her resources. and also of course, russia highly trained labor force. i think this is going to be the most dynamic
10:22 pm
dual ever seen. while inflation in the u. s. is at its highest and 40 years, the bite administration seems to be more focused on gender and sexual orientation issues as the word gender was mentioned, 40 times more than the word inflation in washington. economic report for biden's 1st year as president our teeth ritual. blevins comments after that report, many americans certainly at the moment, are not happy with the white house as president biden continues to blame russia for everything from soaring inflation, due skyrocketing gas prices. but it's the presidents 2022 economic report that is now raising a number of questions as it uses the word gender 40 times more than the word inflation. even saying that if the u. s. really wants to address economic inequality, then the country needs to take a look at a number of different gender identities. the u. s. census bureaus,
10:23 pm
household post survey, designed to provide real time tracking of outcomes during the coven. 19 pandemic. for the 1st time, introduce separate questions about sexual orientation and gender identity on a census bureau survey in july 2021. so what exactly does that have to do with economics? especially in a time when the u. s. economy is getting worse and worse. annual inflation is over 40 year highs at 8 and a half percent. americans are having to pay more all around. whether it's trying to keep their lights on with energy prices up, 32 percent or paying more at the gas pump with gas prices up, staggering, 48 percent. but by then continues to try to put the blame on russia for his own economic policies. the 2nd big reason for inflation is rather imprudent, not a joke. and when the mind administration isn't focusing on gender studies, they're focusing on ukraine signing off on another $800000000.00 military aid package just this week. but biden's approval rating continues to hit new record
10:24 pm
lows with nearly half of the country, referring to the u. s. economy as poor under the bite administration. now biden does say that he's going to run for a 2nd term in 2024. but the question remains how many americans will support him after his 1st term in office? from on this, we can cause a larger economic and political expert. jack rasmussen, thanks for being with us here in arch international. so the, by the administration's annual economy report apparently used the word gender dozens of more times than the word inflation. do you think that they're trying to draw attention away from the actual inflation issue or is there something more happening here? we got understand the economic report as a political document that's used for marketing purposes and campaigns and so forth . and the emphasis on gender is a, you know, it reveals that the democrat party focus is on identity politics as it has been
10:25 pm
increasingly in recent years. as it excludes a focus on, you know, real issues, wages and jobs and so forth, that benefits that are working in middle classes in this country. so it reflects the strategy, the democrats, as far as inflation, is concerned. it was a big problem before ukraine than before. blaming putting a it was a problem because of global supply chains were in bad shape. and because the stimulus ran out last summer, and also because when the supply chain issue began to drive inflation last year, you had a lot of companies big companies that didn't have a supply problem at all. you know, like me packing companies or bakery car product companies or even low companies, they had a glut of products, but they were raising their prices even faster. they were hiding behind the supply chain issue to price gouge. and that's still going on. and then you lay on top of that the sanctions which are causing big problems and global commodity chains and
10:26 pm
supply if not just oil and gas, but of course, agricultural grain products and industrial metals, and fertilizers and so forth. and that's exacerbating the sanctions, are exacerbating, i find it interesting that he says, protein or when the real problem is the sanctions, it's not permanent, it's the sanctions. this is the u. s. policy that driving all the shortages and the, you know, they have no solution to it. what is buying the solution? well, he says he's gonna open the strategic petroleum reserve. and they, what's gonna happen is what's already had sitting in a cell. companies are buying the cheap strategic petroleum reserve oil, an oil in the ground. so there's no real supply increase going on on the oil side. the other solution is he's going to give a more tax cuts to manufacturing companies. and so that there can be more competition. well that takes years and we'll see whether that's competition or not
10:27 pm
. so there's no solution going on to the inflation and it's going to accelerate. we saw on the price gouging idea when the gas pumps prices were still going up when the barrel prices were going down. but prices for many essential goods in the united states continue to rise. for example, on monday, the price of corn reached the highest level in almost a decade. or do you think that the by the administration will be able to bring down inflation in any real way whatsoever? no, not at all. you see their solution is to rely on the federal reserve to jack interest rate sub $67.00 times a record rate of increase and rise and interest rates, which really means that the federal reserve and the government has already decided that the solution is recession. and that's going to hit early next year, or maybe even before. but it's not going to really stop the problem of supply or the sanctions is causing the inflation. because what it means is they're going
10:28 pm
to take it out on the backs of the middle class and businesses, small businesses. it's going to be a demand, destruction from the rate increases that has nothing to do with the problem being on the supply side. so now it's, it's not going to be a solution here and it's going to, we're going to have stagflation for sure. so how do you think the plan is going to work out with the outreach from actual americans who are struggling with the soaring cost of living? i'm sure that depression is not a word that they're looking for, or even recession. they're not something they really want to see on the horizon now . well, you know, the consequences, the debit cards are going to be toasted november elections or they're going to get slaughtered. but we're going to not withstanding gerrymandering which push very few seats in congress in play. notwithstanding, even that it's going to be a destruction of a democrat sheets in congress is even worse,
10:29 pm
i believe. then we saw on 2010 that i 1st consequentialist jack ross, miss professor of economics and politics at st. mary's college in california. but have you with us. thanks. my pleasure. and that as a for me, this our, i will be back with more news and let's say 30 minutes. you're watching our international. what happens ah ah, with a
10:30 pm
ah, with we're told one of the hallmarks of western liberalism is the idea and practice of tolerance. more specifically, it is said, we should not judge an individual or group based on their race color or creed. but that apparently doesn't apply when it comes to russians. bruce or phobia, is the new bigotry. oh, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safe isolation, whole community.
