9:03 am
were ignored. would continue our attempts to persuade them peaceful life is being restored in the territories of the denounced can logan's republics and ukraine freed from the nationalists. this includes mur, you pull the largest industrial and transport center and the as of c, which is now under control of the russian army. the united states and their nato allies continue to poor weapons and to ukraine. we know that any ne to transport arriving in the country and carrying arms or supplies for the craning, armed forces will be considered a legitimate target. you ah, the e u commission. as for pose than orland bar, go on, rush as part of a 6 round of sanctions over the conflict in ukraine. brussels is eyeing up a total bomb, non russian oil imports by the end of this year. well, let's discuss the latest now with our correspondent rahman crosstrek. few developments from on to that. keep on top of here. the 1st thing i always ask in such situations,
9:04 am
what's the support level here is the unanimous support across the block to such a move? well, if we, if you heard anything about the answer russia sanctions recently you are probably a loft as not as many people are. but in this case, the 6 round of sanctions. at this point, the european union's friends are presented like the having a, a united front if you will. but said this point to, i gotta tell you is far from unity in europe. it's true that the european commission president, the ursula of on their line, she had outlined in the proposed use sanctions. and indeed there are including a ban on impulse imports or for all of russian oil until the end of this year. mind you are only hearing sanctions against russian oil so far. i haven't heard anything about, well, haven't heard any talk about restrictions on russian gas. so in this case, it looks was somewhat hypocritical, if you will,
9:05 am
because there are certain countries that are relying on russian gas in majority. they're willing to risk the economies of other countries that are relying on russian oil in this case in this case. in particular, how we're talking about hungary and slovakia because it will be very economies that will be thrown on those of us. hungary energy supply cannot be endangered because no one can expect us to allow the price of the war in ukraine to be paid by hungarians. it is currently physically impossible for hungary and its economy to function without russian oil. if it comes to an approved embargo of rush and oil is part of a sad package of sanctions against russia, then slovakia will request an exemption. so clearly here we see a european giant against minnows of the european union if you will. now, another problem that some european union members see here with the potential
9:06 am
embargo on russian oil is that, well, at the moment. so there is no clear plan of the support for those countries that will be primarily affected by the ban on russian oil. and now that's it, regardless of their relationship for to russia. for example, check republic who have continuously voice support for the opposition of rushes, special operation in ukraine where they are also slamming this proposal for a while for not having any clear cut burden sharing plans. now, so that's the european commission president. ursula want their line wash insisted that the blocks members simply have to do it. or can we just turn back to what we were seeing in those graphics? earlier we saw from from hungry we saw from slovakia pretty stringently against
9:07 am
what's being proposed here. why? well let's take a look at the economies of those the countries hungry and slovakia. like you just mentioned, budapest, well they rely on russia for at least 58 percent of their oil. if you take a little brought this lava in slovakia, well they are relying for russian oil for a warping 96 percent of their economy. now for them, the european union is proposing a well, a longer transition period before they can substitute their needs for russia natural resources. however, this proposal that we're looking at so it doesn't take into consideration the fact that it might take these countries. we'll talk about hunger in slovakia right now. well at least several years to adapt their infrastructure to alternative sources of energy. and so naturally, as they're saying right now, then there would need some sort of a guarantee from the big european union,
9:08 am
a guarantee which is doesn't look to be on the courts at the moment. yet what we're year repeatedly here. among, in such situations, the brussels comes out with something unsafe, they've got the support. other countries say, no, that's not right. but who, who wins in the way the structure is set up here? can those who oppose the proposals use their veto power in such a situation? well, at the moment, the way the european union is set up for foreign policy or any global decision making within the european union is well usually in supposed to be a unanimous affair. in other words, if one member states is against the globe, no changed than the decision would simply not pass. however, at this moment, during the thoughts of discussions right now, there are already attempts to cancel this. if you call the basic and foundation rule of the european union and change it to
9:09 am
a simple majority to decision and well that will go against the entire system against what european union stands for. but also better if we must go beyond the principle of unanimity, which gives rise to an intergovernmental logic of clashing vito's and moved towards decisions taken by a qualified majority that only praise a man just who may be ab summarize them. because i think it's an important point if the proposals are supported at some stage down the line anyway, what would the shifts from the principal of you, you name and you're saying the way that block works and s and signify like it is active to be a complete, see change then? well, at this point, it's really hard to gauge what will actually happen, what will actually happen to the system of the european unit. because this discussion, like we said, is just the beginning. we just heard from italy, for example, but it's quite clear that if the decision making changes from unanimous to
9:10 am
simple majority then, well less influence influential countries, if you will certainly have problems with protecting of protection of their national interests and their voices and opinions of the people there will mean absolutely nothing within the larger european union framework. and this is definitely all for, from a sense of unity among all nations of european constants when, well, a set of countries will dictate their opinion to those people who are less represented on the political scene. so we are taken away by what we're talking about right now. hungary, slovakia, the opinion of the residence of the citizens of those countries will basically mean nothing. if somebody in brussels will decide otherwise intriguing, the room on the line is just coming through from the reuters news agency saying that the commission has nots agreed on
9:11 am
a russian oil embargo and talks will continue tomorrow. so that's intriguing as to what might come from that as you've just been expanded. romano, thanks very much. our correspondent, a remind costs or if something else which may affect all that the russian president has signed a decree. introducing retaliatory economic measures response to western sanctions than you document buns, trading with individuals and entities from so called on friendly countries. it also bands, reportedly fossil fuel exports to such states no sanctions on russian under. she isn't the only topic causing divided opinion across europe. german intellectuals, artists, they have written an open letter to love shoals, urging the chancellor not to risk a 3rd world war by supplying more heavy weapons to ukraine. thank you. we are convinced that to such dividing lies have now been reached. first,
9:12 am
the categorical prohibition known accepted and manifest risk of this war escalated into a nuclear conflicts. the delivery of large quantities of heavy weapons however, could make germany itself it brought it to the war. the letter also urges olaf sholtes to do all he can to ensure that a sci fi is reached with germany making a decisive contribution to a solution that they say will stand up to the judgment of history. yet this stone seems to have landed the magazine in hot water. hi, alice schwartz are your call for ukraine. surrender means that your celebrated feminism was just a front, a fake to accept the mass, rape of ukrainian women by russian soldiers as pure cynicism. i don't want any one in the right mind buying your shoddy emma, the letter states. we hope that a compromise can be reached as soon as possible that both sides can accept. if that
9:13 am
were the german attitude, then violent border shifts in war crimes would be the new european normality. this position is insane. however, not all or against this call for a pacifist line from germany. important called for artists and intellectuals. the praise for shoals is unfortunately outdated due to his buckling under pressure from union free democratic party and grin, and to deliver tanks to ukraine. but the demands to prevent world war 3 are all the more urgent voices against the move to supply. heavy weapons to ukraine are getting louder. already on the petition side. changed or to hundreds of thousands have selling to signals they are against such deliveries. while public sentiment in germany is slaves poll, showing that an equal number off for and against that decision by berlin. their support for sending such weapons is said to be on decline the magazine. emma,
9:14 am
where this letter was published, also hate out of the media coverage of the war. some have argued germany was bullied into the decision to vote to send heavy weaponry to ukraine. no, it's clear. there are many in the country who still don't support that decision. any dissenting voice does seem to be now the target of a campaign of bribe eating charlotte even c r t. paris and it's not just germany where opposition is growing over the uptake of lethal aid being sent to kiev. hundreds of protesters took to the streets in bulgaria. on tuesday, i'm going up the government's plans to send weaponry to ukraine. they're demanding that the country stays neutral in the conflict chanting we want peace and neutrality. people gathered in front of the parliament building and sophia, the demonstrations began after the government unless it would be holding
9:15 am
a hotel later today on sunday, arms to ukraine. those against the move are calling for a moratorium on the sponsoring either troops or weapons of setting up military bases. no one moment. one of the governments favorite phrases as they cannot stay inactive against the injustice. but nowadays, they are ready to introduce the bulgarian people to a war from the aussies up we want to ban approved of bulgarian territory be used for hitting either of both countries of the war. the neutrality in this madness is the most important thing. it is the 3rd and final day of the indian prime minister's diplomatic tour of europe. no rent remotely has visited germany, denmark and is in france today for talks with president and money will mccrory. it's his 1st trip to the west. since the start of the conflict and ukraine coming against the backdrop of diplomat, again fighting on pressure on new delhi to join the sanctions regime against
9:16 am
russian or correspondence r t to cool thing, can tell us more drag minister nor enter moby during his tour in europe in his meeting with his danish counterpart, met frederickson, discussed india's relationship with european union, and also discuss into pacific dies, as well as situation in ukraine. even as the discussions revolt around economic agenda, particularly india, and use free trade agreement which is expected to be finalized. i'd be earliest, but at the same time, his danish counterpart attempted to pressurized sir modi to take a stand on russia. denmark and the entire european union strongly condemned russia's own lawful and unprovoked invasion of ukraine. my message is very clear,
9:17 am
poochie has got to stop this war and to end the killings. i of course, hope you have. india will influence russia also in this, in this discussion and his response from mr. not in the more be why did any mention off russia. he did not express any couldn't destination against moscow. and in fact, called for please in ukraine, we appeal for an immediate cease fire in ukraine for the adoption of dialogue and diplomacy to resolve the problem. so thought india has been consistent on its approach towards more school. it has taken, its a started good, traditional stance, riches sharing this strategic partnership, the more school it has a why did you in fact, all the wards in the united nations security council. it abstained from working
9:18 am
against russia on his last spot on his last trip. in b, europe, he grabbing still more be really be visiting france and meeting president emmanuel marker. he's been recently re elected to get more on maurice tour in europe, less cross live now to foreign policy expert res shakes. speaking to us from indoor in central india. can i have you on the program today? i'm looking to evening. i think in france, what can we expect from the moody mac crohn meet? will there be any significant developments in franco indian relations? the photos, the banquet and relationship is concerning learning because we have really gone lot and this push in b, i is getting momentum, but it could be in that grid or let it be in terms of diploma or
9:19 am
even in terms of the nation. but just from a full on these, if we would be caused by the end of them will be along with you. as part of that share you can turn to india won't read, there must be a will believe that she'll tell definitely be right with the security of the security of the board or you, can you ever write life piece one piece for these? and definitely premise to none of them will be, will be speaking with the counterpart because this has been called to regarding the thing that i think should be good to know must be, must be given. johnson, and think should work to establish peace between the condition and indeed india
9:20 am
has remained firm in the position for some time as regards as you've been going through the ukraine conflict. do you expect that independence stamps to continue despite all the pressure that new delhi is coming under? definitely did our best shot. but to make sure that you knew there is no way to bank in front of the pressures. because i believe in the freedom of foreign policy as well as the read them off the policy. and what will these blink for the pressure come from best from any fear in the do what it is right in be i will do what it came to the right place to push crease in the india will not compromise the decor, me or the policy, but that won't make france,
9:21 am
nor i would presume brussels happy. how will that stance on the crisis influence its relationship with the european block? the relationship with european rock and especially this is quite mature. they understand where we are coming from. what is a lot of historical relationships? what is the approach for dependence of indian foreign policy and strategic or told me so the relationship between europe and didn't be particularly for quite mature. and that relationship will be hampered. clear in wanting testing is the overall points. very interesting girl raise because you have western countries attempting to influence new delhi position. india is saying, hold on. we know what we're seeing. we've said this from day one. stop trying to
9:22 am
influence what we think. does europe fear the strengthening of india relationship, but russia, for instance, the europe north that india and the shatter good for friendship and the we have been friends and taken in all the time so that nobody can be dead. who india is going to keep us friends, so not, not, not, you know, not even, not anybody. but i think that it in diplomacy and the indian collection with best head mature so much that build so look a little bit more pressure upon in the actual changes. wanted to see me. and let me tell you, frankly, there will be the best and need in be more than in need for us because there
9:23 am
are enough and only country in play and we're going to do it. is it india? so they need to get more than what they need. nobody can restrict sure. right. india unwilling to render moody. be telling mr. mccrae back directly. do you think really is a good friend with the mr. mac ron and mr. mcclure and understand what the lender will be on, and i think the noise should not the need for anything it forward the index then because the mr micron laws, muddy very well, what did you bring? what is this for an honest people? so nobody can, i should, i is a primary stuff like that in the room will be who, who had the people in india and actually just maybe
9:24 am
a word on india, russia relations. before we let you go, girl raise, how do you see that those ties either expanding or the opposite of 20? 22 goes on. does it depend on the conflict a lot? or despite that is new deli, moscow, or ties between the 2 strong onset to get even stronger. he in border a, she and relationship does one. so it will keep moving despite of conflict or anything, but definitely in the board that this conflict should and should be. it is bald. me believe this must be what rest and most all human in which we are also friendly human through the country. so you definitely want to get the most and wants with these and the role of india is definitely the blish,
