1:02 am
and we can now cross lives. our price based correspondence shall to bends give her a deeper analysis of the election results on the protest that they've triggered. as charlotte, how was microns victory perceived by the french? well, president mack on came on to a stage just in front of the eiffel tower, 2 screaming crowds. he was there, greeted like a rock star, but even he had to admit that he had been re elected, not necessarily because of his ideas. and those were ideas that people supported, but because people gave him the vote to block marine the pen looks would be it between our countries 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 he talked our about healing
1:03 am
these divisions in france, and it's not the 1st time that he's talked about doing something like that. but what we saw in the hours after his re election showed that those divisions are starkly there. we've seen protests over the past 2 weeks, mainly from those from the hall left to were unhappy that once again, that this was a re, one of 2017, that the choice was between emanuel mack on or marine le pen. and as that boat came through, there were already protests that had been planned in cities across frances must say in to lose not ran. and even here in paris, for the most part, these were peaceful protests as people just saying, look, we're unhappy that yet again, this was the choice that we were faced with. and many of these protests were organized by those from the heart left. however, they were in some instances mod,
1:04 am
in violence between the protesters and the police. and there were arrests. 2 ah, what many of the protesters had wanted was simply another choice. then man, your new commercial had become within inches of getting into that 2nd round. and there was a huge distaste that he just happened made it there. however, sure mcmillan, sean is now going to the legislative elections that will take place in june. here in france to a point, those who sit in the national assembly, what he's going to try and do is to unite the left on france and his party by far in the 1st on got the largest support almost 22 percent. and he does want to now force himself into a position where he could become the prime minister of france. basically what he
1:05 am
wants to do is deny it. president mack, on a majority in those elections. the other person now gunning for those elections to is marine le pen. yes, she lost by a wide margin than the polls it been predicted. but what she did is increase her support significantly from the election back in 2017. and she is hugely bullied by the fact that there has been an unprecedented support of turner for her party of the hard white. 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 and it's these elections where the focus is now going to lie. the battle may have been one for mac on this time, but there is an even bigger battle to come in the coming weeks and months for those elections. you know, president mack on needs to gain
1:06 am
a majority to be able to have the kind of power he wields for what he'd like to do with his next term in office. and he is somebody that is seen by a significant chunk of the electorate. as somebody they don't want to be president t is described by many of the left hand on the right as being arrogant when we've been to protest to for the past 5 years is monica has been president of the rich and his 1st term really was mine. by violent protest, particularly the yellow vests, which started all the way back in 2018. and to some extent, are still going on the streets on saturdays in smaller numbers, but they still there, there is still that unease. now in the 2nd term, he's talked about close to ties again with brussels. he's talked about raising the retirement age. both, these are ideals that the left and the right disagree with massively. this was an election of historic proportions,
1:07 am
whether you take it for the fact that he's become the 1st person in 20 years to be reelected. whether you look at the extension weight, which was at record highest for 50 years. whether you look at the fact that there was the highest support for the hard right, that the 5th republican fonts has ever seen. the reality is what the selection of showed is that this is a polarized society. this is a polarized france. and the reality is that that is likely to harold in another 5 years for president, michael michelle. a thank you very much for breaking down the divisive or french presidential election resort as artesia davinsky reported live from pars. thank you . and staying with friends, the french military, who returned an army base to molly enforce daily this week is accused. listen, mercer is a staging barrier in mali, claiming the actions are parts of a smear campaign against them. the video provided associated press, allegedly shows around
1:08 am
a dozen bodies being buried noon army base in northern molly. the soldiers in the video are believed to be members of the wagner group, a russian mercy contingent. and the french military claims is an attempt to discredit french operations in the country. the russian foreign ministry has called for a thorough investigation into the burial. given the traditional tendency of the french media and often some european officials to blame other countries for all the sins, 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 malia northrop cease 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. earlier historian and author gerald hall and told us the front has previously made documentation against others in africa. frances trying to deflect attention from the fact france has
1:09 am
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 dust than 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 this current crisis . and molly, because we know that the molly and authorities were quite dissatisfied with the performance of the french troops in molly, in the russian city of brians, close to the border with ukraine. a huge fire broke out an oil deaf

1:14 am
and send them on further for medical care. we feel great uh we have support from our command and we believe everything went soon. rushes strategy here is care the intent east to encircle ukraine's forces nationalist battalions and regular troops in the don baths region after 8 years of fighting and preparations to retake separatist areas by force. they are both experienced and well armed. this battle will neither be short nor easy, or ad guys. the of oddity from the netscape. staying in the dentist republic has some footage for muddy pools port showing the level of destruction after intense fighting, a number of ships, all bodily damage, and even sunk cause and 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 that we saw him, does it fucked. his discuss those learned, the ukrainian army had a fortified position in almost every building here was published. this is evidenced by the large amount of ammunition that is present here,
1:15 am
including western weaponry. if the building is untouched, that means there was no one here. hello, 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. good on that. 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. and while some semblance of com returns to the city of murder, you full orthodox christians, there celebrated easter and r. t. crew delivered humanitarian aid with traditional foods. one of the cities, churches out one local, find her family. so we are taking the agenda to the border with russia. as you can see, a lot of people have seen her off her here. this is, these are all the things that she has left for the remains of her previous life and
1:16 am
will take her over to her relatives. hi sweetheart. i can forward to your arrival. if you knew how heavy i am, i'm slowly starting to come to my senses. now, people are wonderful. it was very hard when a. com, i'll tell you everything you need from us. and then, you know, the most important thing that we have despite any efforts to change that from outside is mercy. you can't kill camaraderie, you can't kill empathy solidarity, you can't kill unity. and i suppose the greatest thing that no one can take away from us is our ability to love. some western media outlets are ramping up the pressure after the european commission allowed payments for russian gas in rubles with germany and austria, declaring a quick cuts off from russian gas saying it would devastate their economies. the countries now phase calls what's of measures for refusing to fall in line with tough until russian sanctions, as ortiz, dont call to reports. you're either with us or against us. that seems to be the
1:17 am
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 russia has. it's not just oil and gas, it's also rare earths. and these are raw materials that cannot simply be
1:18 am
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 with 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 ask the people on the streets is down and, and how can a country be punished for buying something? we need to discuss whether it is possible or not to continue buying, rush and gas, and 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 asked, where are we going to get gas from? where will we get it? if we stop her to sing, where will we get gas from? even e, you politicians are flat out saying they cannot go on without russian das. we will not see the consequences of this in the spring and summer of 2022 as we have restocked,
1:19 am
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 of i 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. and rubles that 1st the you 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
1:20 am
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 and 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 keith's former austrian foreign minister con, can i so told us that this pressure is a vendetta by some of germany's partners in the u. you know, there's a kind of a,
1:21 am
than that i sort of revenge in my eyes. if i may say, by certain parts of germany were dictated about 1012 years ago by the german government. how to run their economy. that was against a backdrop of your price is $22011.00. then chancellor, i'm going to america less put them in front of very strong reforms in order to remain within the year or so. that was particularly true for greece, but it also hit italy, spain protocol to a certain extent. and when i'm observing now, the positions by italy and greece, both countries are also very dependent on russian gas imports. so they say, well look, we are more or less in similar situation like germany that we go for it. and by the way, all recession you, germany dictated us 10 years ago was much harder than whatever you might face. now i would call it now it's
1:22 am
a sort of little revenge by those governments and the germans honestly have not been behaving in a very diplomatic, in a very strategic way. also over the last 1015 years. ah, european commission president ursula on the line will meet with indian prime minister render modi's today as part of a string of diplomatic attempts to reduce induced ties to russia. we can cross live now to ortiz, correspondence in india, r t ticker sing. who can tell us more about this upcoming visits, or see what do you know? well, this is the 1st visit or, or stella lamb in india ever since she took over as the president of european commission. she is on a 2 day visit to india. she arrived sure yesterday in new jelly on sunday. and she is going to later today have a joint press conference with prime minister now in the more be. well,

1:24 am
abstained from working against russia on several words in the united nations. this also indicates that the west is also trying to reach in your off from the cooperation it has with russia over its defense and strategic partnership. or salon is expected to all similar lines as the rest of the rest of the leaders, even as joe biden tried to put pressure u. k prime minister. but johnson who was here last, just a week ago, in fact, just a few days ago, he and dr. 2, he tried to explore other opportunity opportunities, these for bilateral trade between india and u. k. so from russia to offering southern trade, oppertunity is red, b, e, u,

the rest is driving very all kinds of efforts to your india or so far is also going to explore opportunities on defense on trade, on climate knowledgeable cooperation between india and b, u e. u. however, it is quite interesting that india's finance minister has in an interview we'll get into your bug, said that even as you all would like to be ready with the rest, with the liberal arrest, but it also needs to joshua affords for defense. i think that's a huge statement coming from india finance, new stuff indicating that is not going to change. it starts on new green audit just to just partnership and relationship with more school. well r c, i hope you'll bring us. any updates on us. live underlines visit to india and when you get another r t correspondence in india autistic listing. thank you very much. the
1:26 am
newly allotted pakistani government as agreed to the international monetary funds, recommendations on structural reforms to boost the country's economy, which is currently facing a recession. this will be made in order to resume the payoff of loans approved by the institution back in 2019 for 3 years, but which were then suspended due to concerns are focused on non fulfillment of the conditions. it's going to governments blames al, said prime minister iran car for the problems for him, and he was a proving too many subsidies that led to corruption and 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. enron khan 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. now the i m f has already made a list of demands to pakistan, include in scrubbing, fuel subsidies under types amnesty scheme,
1:27 am
as well as the implementation of new taxation measures and an increase in energy tariffs. if islam about meets these requirements, the body is likely to resume payments. those will help to boost the economy, which is currently suffering from spiraling inflation. rising prices under deficits . over pakistan, society remains divided over the possibilities of real economic change under the government initiatives committee. quito. ok, well, i don't have any expectations in they have announced some temporary relief that you can give relief. only if you have money in the exchequer. in brand con, had brought money from overseas, but these people are thieves in criminals who closed the industries and we are not happy with the metal committee or the past 4 years have been very difficult under the past government. we are living hand to mouth and from this government 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
1:28 am
political situation pakistan on the negotiations with rove her son, who's a coordinator with the press trust of india news agency. and he told us the current government will not get a good deal from the 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, i am looking forward to some reading relating to do it to o. mediating said, enter before before the i'm of and are all other such a national institutional for beer focused on maybe needing financial support and is to come. history demonstrates that again and again that these people have come and looted in plunder the country. so i'm afraid that bulk of this money is needed, not well pakistan 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 a dose of very healthy governance, which unfortunately, i'm convinced that these people cannot provide there's the war. ukraine continues
1:29 am
to rock world politics. the united states on his allies are trying to exclude russia from international institutions with g 20 being the latest arts he's eager to done, of has more 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. 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, but only until an actual opportunity to get both presidents of russia and ukraine into the same room presented itself with a g 20 lead as meeting looming. oh, how's the tunes changed? touched by the resilience, determination and hospitality of president zalinski and denis shemelle. i returned with
1:30 am
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 cajun 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 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,
