10:02 pm
the lights all raised between micron and the right wing firebrand marine le pen. the gap between the opponents was far close to the last election, and opponents of monro micron took the street to show that discontent. ah. 7 the protests highlight the drop in the incumbent president's ratings that have been consistently falling in the run up to the elections. artesia davinsky reports on those election result looks would be it bits, did our country is full of so many doubts, so many divisions. so we will need to be strong, but no one will be left behind. it will be up to us to work together to achieve unity. i'm not the candidate of one camp anymore, but the president of all of us. so many of my call has been re elected as president of france. it's the 1st time that anybody has been given
10:03 pm
a 2nd shot in office for around 20 years. he'd beat murphy in the pen with a larger majority than was expected. however, many said that they simply couldn't vote for either candidate. and as a result of that, the abstention rate is said to be at a 15 year high at around 28 percent. there was anger that spilled out to the streets of france moment. so after that announcement was made that a manual mat gone had once again won this huge discontentment with some of the things he did him. his 1st. a mandate his 1st 5 years in office and they were already tensions palatable with protest is out on the streets. there's tensions were high.
10:04 pm
ah so marine the pen of the national valley didn't win that this time around. however, she does feel as if that the fact that she was more than 40 percent of the vote, that's what's been projected that she has been raised up by that a what we have seen for her policy is this unprecedented support that wasn't there previously. she has gained huge, were meant him since she went in to that 2nd round of the election back in 2017. why? well, her campaigning for the cost of living crisis has resonated with a huge proportion of the electorate taylor in france. and there is really this distaste by many for president mack on some the that has been described over and
10:05 pm
over as being divisive and our current in office. and she has. 1 now urged her supporters to use this success as a springboard for the legislative elections that are coming up here in june. we are more determined than ever. i have no resentment. we will not forget the france that is forgotten. the ideas that we represent have reached new heights in this defeat. i can't help but feel hope marrying the pen all so said that emmanuel might come was a divisive figure. and as we saw from his 1st term in office, there were an abundance of protest. movements here in france, whether that was from the yellow, vast movement that started back in 2018 and hassle, quite pete it out yet, or the protest. so for his plans to raise the retirement age. something that he actually campaigned on this time around and says he will look to do in his next 5 years in office for present. michael and how has perhaps an even bigger problem
10:06 pm
that he needs to face. when he took control 5 years ago, he talked about the idea of bringing people together to heal the nation and talked about doing every is impossible to ensure that people wouldn't lose towards the fringes towards parties like the national rally. what we have seen in 2022 is that the national rally came far too close for comfort for many to actually getting to the lease a palace hail in france. so could another 5 years of macro, and if he continues to stoke that same type of division that he had seen over his past mandate, if that continues, could france move even further in the next 5 years towards those fringes, on the french military, he returns an army base to marlin forces early this week, as accused russian mercenaries of staging burials in mali, claiming the actions a part of
10:07 pm
a smear campaign against them. video provided so associated press allegedly shows around a dozen bodies being buried near an army base in northern molly. the soldiers in the footage are believed to be members of the wagner group or russian mercenary contingent and the french military claims in as an attempt to discredit french operations in the country. the russian foreign ministry is called for an investigation into the burial. given the traditional tendency of the french media and often some european officials to blame other countries for all the since we can assume that some will be tempted to throw into the media space versions directed against the molly and military who successes in clearing the terrorist threat from their republic has irritated paris, which failed to do so during the years of its presence in molly, we support the decision of the maryan authorities to thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the commission of this crime. we hope that the perpetrators will be identified and will be brought to justice. while historian and author gerald horn told us that france has previously made accusations against others in africa,
10:08 pm
and that an investigation must be conducted. frances trying to deflect attention from the fact france has a reputation in africa as being a major vampire in terms of sucking the life blood out of the continent. so given that state of affairs, it's no accident. that frances seeking to point the finger of accusation at others . i agree with the statement that there needs to be a thorough investigation. oh, what led up to this video? we know that there is a tendency in the north atlantic countries to throw dustin the eyes of the public to try to distract attention from their misdeeds by pointing the finger of accusation at others. and that might be at play with regard to the current crisis. and molly, because we know that the molly and authorities were quite dissatisfied with the
10:09 pm
performance of the french troops in molly was fighting continues to rage in the dawn by small russian troops arriving in the combat zone. our correspondent rod gasdio visited a local school abandoned by the ukrainian military, which was used as a defensive position phase 2 of russia's operation. ukraine is in full swing. vast convoys of troops and equipment. continue to pour into the boy's own day and night. and as you get closer to the front, the sky lights up with russian forces together with local de nits, militiamen are sweeping along the regions administrative borders. all of this was liberated from ukrainian nationalists and regulars. within the past week, it's easy to find where they were quoted and re supplied. often,
10:10 pm
you just have to head for the closest school. for 8 years, as you grade, waged civil war against separate as provinces they. they tried to convince everyone from you out of the country was united. here is the core across the hall from the law can belong to novak senior ukraine said over the years and i didn't wanna go through with the food. cho rolls for viola bray. gorgeous paula samuel nation leave on pods of shoulder, aloof anti missile. and this is the scene in every single village taken from ukrainian troops that they with holes in the military bases. social media platforms are flooded with videos,
10:11 pm
showing ukrainian troops setting up bases and arms. depos in schools, even as frightened civilians pack the basement. yeah hm. village, any settlement wherever we go? they make their firing positions in kindergarten schools, churches. the nationalists flip side by side with civilians in the end when they begin to retreat, their artillery hits post us and civilians. this scenario is repeated every time after our troops arrive, people relax, they begin to live. normally they calm down. russian and allied forces. here have almost reached the border of ukraine's near pro petrov screech and they are at the gate severely can of a shortcut, a large fortified town. closer to the front lines, we found a forward medical station. russian and local medics receive stabilize and send on troops injured in the fighting. we arrived as 3 bennett's militiamen wounded by
10:12 pm
shrapnel, perceived urgent care. i personally, i imagine you will not be a little late. i live right over them with motherly mother. none of the injuries were life threatening, though one soldier was heavily concussed. 3 at once is rare, but not unseen. this he's a savage war, even though some humanity remains in the condition. fear that where am i being at the forefront? we are holding on with we have a sufficient supply of everything we need that we accept everyone including civilians, even captured enemy soldiers. we provide them with the necessary medical assistance and send them on further for medical care. we feel great are we have support from our command and we believe everything went soon. rushes strategy here is care. the
10:13 pm
intent he's to encircle ukraine's forces nationalist battalions and regular troops in the don bass region. after 8 years of fighting had preparations to retake separatist areas by force. they are both experienced and well armed. this battle will neither be sure who easy or i'd get thee of ot, from the disk. on stand in the done it's republic, you can see footage for muddy who pulls polls showing the level of distortion after intense fighting number of ships, badly damaged with some having been sunk. cars on buildings in the area have also been destroyed with some unexploded minds left in the area. we heard from a russian soldier and a captain of a bulgarian ship dishes to discuss those learning. the ukrainian army had a fortified position in almost every building. here was, this is evidenced by the large amount of ammunition that is present here, including western weaponry. if the building is untouched,
10:14 pm
that means there was no one here. below the digital of nike pleasure. it was hard for the crew because we are civilians. it was a lot of stress for us to hear the explosions of mines and grenades. it was terrible. no one can work here. now. cranes are damaged buildings. computers, papers are destroyed. there is no one in the port who would work here will. meanwhile, in the russian city of bryan switches close to the border with ukraine, huge fire broke out as an oil depot. local officials did confirm. the incident with the cause of the fi is not yet known. residents of the nearby area say they had powerful explosions before fire and gulf, the oil depot, but no casualties have been reported. and as always, will bring you updates as and when we get them. a german national newspaper has published an article transcribed from a video by a ukrainian writer, arguing against the perception of the as all battalion as
10:15 pm
a new nazi organization. to day, the extreme right does not play a significant role in ukraine. at least none that comes close to the importance that russian propaganda attributes date. the close ties to the reserve regiment, which the national cor, claims to this day no longer exist in reality. brother as av is now a highly professional special unit, not a political organization, not a militia, not a right wing extremist battalion. ukraine's as of battalion has become a contentious topic in the mainstream media, with some outlets refusing to label them as neo nazis and others openly defending them. claiming any accusations that of our neo nazis is crude. since propaganda will the defense and even supports of as of appears to be catching on with a pro ukrainian rally in new york seen chanting in support of the battalion. ah
10:16 pm
ukrainian community in new york gathered to demand the u. s. government further arm ukraine. protestors wave funds in support of sending american weapons to the country. and we spoke to martin told sir human rights lawyer and member of germany, the left party. you told us that western media is ignoring reality. so the attempt to kind of green wash the are so regiment of the reality that's a nationalist and fascist militia inside of the ukranian army with a history coming from the you mind the massacre arbitration in the house in just a 2nd. my review and different walk crimes, right, of forces inside of the ukrainian politics, a kind of steer. busy ripening john g for example,
10:17 pm
that c a u claim history and the fascist in the ukraine. since my and they have a. busy leading role in different sectors of hartley education and partly in the military. and the nato wants to nurse the wall not to stop. so they have to find a narrative, how to make the ukraine to which a mich western media is ramping up. the pressure after the european commission allowed payments for russian gas in rubles with germany and austria, declaring a quick cut off from russian gas would devastate their economies. the countries now phase calls with of measures for refusing to fall in line with the russian sanctions. ortiz,
10:18 pm
donald quarter has more not. you're either with us or against us. that seems to be the message, the western media, sending berlin just for being a bit apprehensive about slapping more sanctions on russia. we could impose a 6 month ban on german exports and keep extending it until the war was over or the gas pipelines closed down. alternatively, we could organize consumer boycotts after all. any one buying a new b m w, or volkswagen is indirectly paying for putin's army. a point worth keeping in mind when choosing a new car. according to that telegraph article, germany should end up right next to moscow on the sanctions list, just because berlin is worried about what more sanctions could mean for its own economy in new york times. also put out a hit piece on former chancellor. gerhard schroeder, for saying germany is, economy needs russia you can't isolate a country like russia in the long run, neither politically nor economically. german industry needs the raw materials that
10:19 pm
russia has. it's not just oil and gas, it's also rare earths. and these are raw materials that cannot simply be substituted when this war is over, we will have to go back to dealing with russia. we always do is not surprising that more german public figures are now thinking that way. after all the countries inflation rate for march was 7.3 percent the highest since 1981. and the rising cost of living has dealt a serious blow to public support for anti russian sanctions. just asked the people on the streets, his own hand, and how can a country be punished for buying something. we need to discuss whether it is possible or not to continue buying russian gas is that who should punish him? i am a heating engineer, i have my own business and i constantly have to install gas heating oil heating. i ask, where are we going to get gas from? where will we get it? if we stop purchasing, where will we get cash from? even e, you politicians are flat out saying they cannot go on without rushing das. we will
10:20 pm
not see the consequences of this in the spring and summer of 2022 as we have restocked, but next winter will impossible to survive. if there is no more russian gas look at the, at the sanctions in a different way. because a we of course, in line with all the sanctions and with our partners in you. but once a sanction it's, it's yourself more than the ones targeted by the sanction. i think there's not much use last month in response to already existing sanctions. russia's president vladimir putin demanded gas payments from unfriendly countries to be made in roubles at 1st. the e u flat out rejected the idea, but after a quick realization that there wasn't much of a choice. if the lights were going to stay on, the european commission agreed to play along. you companies can ask their russian counterparts to fulfill their contractual obligations in the same manner as before . the adoption of the decree by depositing the due amount in euro's or dollars. all the while countries that don't want to dump even more weapons into ukraine are feeling the pressure as well. some in washington want to cut off foreign aids to
10:21 pm
its close ally israel for refusing to do so. israel's reaction to ukraine will have varying on future aid from the u. s. to israel. hey, it forward. while the british telegraph says france and germany should be ashamed for also refusing to send more weapons, it's pushed germany's chancellor to say enough is enough when world tensions are already so high. we must do everything possible to avoid a direct, military confrontation between nato in a highly armed superpower like russia, a nuclear power. i am doing everything i can to prevent an escalation that leads to a 3rd world war. there should be no nuclear war. brussels is planning yet a 6th round of sanctions against russia. the west, santi russia, hardliners are clearly trying to pressure their allies into their camp. but who knows how far they will bend before they decide to protect their own interests over kids? will earlier former austrian foreign minister town can. i sole told us that this pressure is of indebted by some of germany's you panos. you know, there's
10:22 pm
a kind of a, than that i thought of revenge in my eyes. if i may say, by a certain group, parkins of germany were dictated about 1012 years ago by the german government. how to run their economy. that was against a backdrop of your crisis when he turned 2011. then chancellor, i'm gonna america. melissa picked them in front of very strong forms in order to remain within the usa. that was particularly true. respected also hit italy, it stains altogether to a certain extent. and when i am observing now that positions by italy and greece, wolfe, countries are also very dependent on russian gas imports. so they say, well, look, we are more efficient like you, germany, that we go for it and wide away all recession, you generally dictate us and musical was much harder than whatever you might face. now i would call it she and now it's, it's
10:23 pm
a sort of little revenge by those governments and, and the germans honestly have not been behaving in a very diplomatic, in a very strategic way. also over the last 1015 years. in other news, the newly alights had pakistani government has agreed to the international monetary funds, recommendations on structural reforms, to boost the country's economy, which is currently facing recession. this will be made in order to resume the pay off of loans approved by the institution back in 2019 for 3 years. courts which were suspended due to concerns over pakistan's non fulfillment of the conditions. it's current government blames the out of prime minister mankind for the problems claim in. he was a proving too many subsidies that lead to corruption, therefore weakening the country's economy. we have such an elite, benefiting country that almost every subsidy that you can speak of actually goes to the richest people m. ron con,
10:24 pm
gave an amnesty to businesses for setting up factories so that they don't have to pay taxes or even if they evaded taxes. that's ok. the i m f has already made a list of demands to pakistan, including scrubbing, fuel subsidies and attacks. amnesty scheme, as well as the implementation of new taxation measures and an increase in energy tariffs. if as long bad meets these requirements, the body is likely to resume payments. these will help to boost the economy, which is currently suffering from spirally inflation rising prices and the deficits over pakistani society remains divided over the possibilities of real economic change under the government's initiatives. medically though i don't have any expectations seeing they have announced some temporary relief, but you can give relief only if you have money in the exchequer. ember and con, had brought money from overseas. but these people, a thieves in criminals who closed the industries and we are not happy with the metal committee, the circle, the past 4 years have been very difficult under the past government. we are living hand to mouth. and from this government,
10:25 pm
we expect that we will get some relief. there should be a change in our lifestyle so we can manage our kitchen expenses. this government lacks power so they will not be able to work properly. we discussed the current political situation in pakistan and the negotiations with rove her son, a coordinator with the press trust agency, news agency of india. and he told us the current governments will not get a good deal from the i m f. this government does not have any national capability, although it has come to a conspiracy, but it has no credibility. i don't think they would be able to stand up to the tough conditions of the i'm a so i am looking forward to some reading relating to do a 2 o mediating surrender before before the i'm of and all of the sudden nation institutional from year focused on maybe needing financial support and is to come. his 3 demonstrates that again and again that these people have common looted and plunder the country. so i'm afraid that bulk of this money is needed not well focus
10:26 pm
on and the benefit of the people of pakistan. but for their personal benefit, and that is what scares me because of the economic condition of the country is already very precarious. and i think we need our doors are very healthy governance, which unfortunately, i'm convinced that these people cannot wait and does the war in ukraine continues to shake. hope will politics united states and its allies, a transfer, exclude russia from international institutions. with the g 20 being the latest ortiz eager donna has more on that. stop for fighting and sit down for talks. this cool to vladimir putin has been resonating across the global political landscape for months. if it was shuttle fuel, we need solutions and these solutions should be connected with diplomacy. here, of course, it is important that the ukrainian side agree to peace talks and to the conditions were acceptable to the craning site. in general, it is always better to negotiate peace than to fight,
10:27 pm
but only until an actual opportunity to get both presidents of russia and ukraine into the same room presented itself with a g 20 leaders meeting looming. oh, how the tunes changed? touched by the resilience, determination and hospitality of president zalinski and denis shemelle. i returned with a clear to do list. first. this war will be one on the battlefield. additional $500000000.00 euros from the european piece facility or underway. weapon deliveries will be tailored to ukrainian needs and denisia this he has host for the occasion invited everyone, including vladimir putin, a decision that turned out as unpopular as you'd expect and the current climate on the question of the g 20, i will just say this. we believe that it cannot be business as usual for russia in international institutions and in the international community needs to be clear. and we are with canadians and with each other as
10:28 pm
we did when we left the g 20 meeting. when we left the i m f. c plenary that we simply will not be part of meetings while russia is speaking. russia and russians have been ostracized at such scale already. that discovering new ways to discriminate seemed impossible, but some succeeded. several weston finance ministers left me thing when it was the turn of their russian counterpart to speak. modern western diplomacy has been ripped of all undertones, all dexterity outsmarted your political rivals, made way for crude bull headed with or against us. approach with sanctions were at the ready for the latter urgent curse. young were the g. 20 and related international institutions or platforms to discuss international, economic and financial issues. not occasion for formal discussions on the ukraine issue. the us and its allies are so hell bent on, shunning russia,
10:29 pm
they crip other nations who have more than one point on their agenda or what, what add to leap did make clear to his counterparts during this visit, was that we don't believe it's in india's interest to accelerate or increase imports of ration energy and other commodities and actual mobster couldn't have come up with a more cliched thinly veiled threat. at the same time, ukraine is as much in fashion as it can be. at today's g 20, i warmly welcomed ukraine's finance minister, sir gamer, jenko. i also underlined that the e u strongly condemns rushes unprovoked and justified military aggression against ukraine, which undermines international security instability. it's diplomacy 2 point oh, we're g. 20 may very well be renamed into g. 2, the number of member nations is utterly relevant. what matters is if you're against russia or not, with us at your bank, up to date with all the latest from around the world,
10:30 pm
do feel free to head over to all t dot com for more stories. my name is peter scott, and i'll be back again in 30. ah . so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation. let it be an arms race is on offensive, very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resists. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very political time. time to sit down and talk with
