10:02 am
from the amazon style steel plant in murray. you pull this saturday is according to done yet. republic authorities. earlier officials said almost $400.00 people were taken to safety from the city itself. overnight. it comes after new humanitarian corridors were open to a lot of civilian evacuations. to take place a cease fire agreed by russian forces has been place off the factory for some dates . and the closer look now at how the media has been covering the standoff german news outlet there. speaker has deleted a video showing civilians released from the steel plant. in the footage, people claimed ukrainian battalions wouldn't allow them to leave you for i have a question about why people were held in this city. the man left love to city and the people was questioned to ring. the ukrainian army was that which did not let
10:03 am
ordinary people leave children, the elderly, the sick was full on its web page. the german daily published a notice saying the video has some quote inconsistencies, but did not mention specifically what the facts and the material were wrong there. speaker out, i don't a clarification of the footages underway. independent journalist thomas refer, say the german news outlet count food. it's readers if stop a gun the you see that the she goes no us, i know that my read us right mails to the people that there that were comments. another article under this video there's people knew that they were lying that they could have written. oh yeah, the video was the she was saying the opposite she was playing as of or we don't got the wrong information for reuters. is there more say right? it's right, just a fault. but even they didn't do it. they're just high the truth then you they know that well, they're like and they just just don't telling us that. oh yeah. some will. we don't
10:04 am
understand something went wrong. sorry. a burly in apartment building housing, russian journalists and their families was attacked on friday after a window. and the complex was broken. a suspicious object, full of wires, was discovered a bomb disposal unit arrived at the scene to examine this suspected improvised explosive device. this is what's moscow's diplomatic mission in germany, have to say about the incident. the russian embassy does not exclude this outrageous act could be directly related to the atmosphere of persecution, of russian state media in germany, which continued to be accused of spreading disinformation and copper. candor, information and photos revealing the addresses of russian journalists and their families who continue to face threats have been posted on social media and published in leading german media outlets. where had all the russian state news branch in berlin, where the suspected id was found, said he initially thought the device was fake. is not charlie yet?
10:05 am
yes, we go. i'll do more stuff. at 1st i thought it was some kind of fake bomb. something used to intimidate our workers, but it was hidden, was if it's intended to frighten it should be somewhere in sight. but it was placed right near the basement window. we called the police, they shut off the area and we realized the situation was serious. given the police officers were not skeptical and all, given all the recent incidents happening in berlin with russian buildings here, they say they understand why it's happening. there are lots of refugees in berlin because of the military operation in ukraine so, so we don't know who exactly placed the bomb or it could be ukrainians or some german leftist groups whose members were caught near our building, taking photos. the investigation is still ongoing to store you pretty well. first and foremost, all these journalists who were living there right now, they're back home and apparently they're safe. but there was a rather unpleasant incident that well, they had to go through and a 1st what happened an unknown individual through a bottle breaking one of the windows, and initially it wasn't really clay. what was that?
10:06 am
was that an attempted attack with most of cocktail, or was it just the stray bottle of some drunk may be picked up off the street, but then when i more would law enforcement arrived, they'd discovered an interesting device, an unknown device, which later turned out to be well, explosive pro, probably an i e d. so this is what they discovered in the apartment all these wires . and again, as you mentioned, they discovered that it was armed with something with something explosive. so again, it is not clear as to who put it there. it is not clear who the culprit is, it is not even clear as to what sort of an a explosive substance was used there. but again, this is, this is very, this is very concerning because this building there, it's a building, there was a specific allocated to house brush and journalists both with brian oversee and for example, are a head of the sputnik germany. sputnik being and other russian news agency and
10:07 am
a big radio like network worldwide network. so it does look like this building was specifically targeted because it only housed again russian, john less, nobody else lived there. so it was allocated for those purposes. and given the fact that shortly before this incident, shortly before this attack, a report reported of the of the german spiegel journal spiegel magazine, they kinds of docs, people, they released a report published a report saying that this is where russian propagandists live. and again, there's no connection, there's no direct connection that can be, you know, established between the 2 incidents. but again, this is very concerning. concerning that anyone can ascertain, way reporters live from this report will absolutely. and given that no russian citizen, let alone journalist, especially working for a state funded news agency,
10:08 am
no one can feel safe in europe right now when it comes to a being a russian citizen, russian local. so there has been a tremendous pressure applied to russian media work as well across europe, in germany as well. for example, we have a sister channel, i mean c team to national has assisted channel r t deutschland and from the very get go, journalists and the very well entity was precious by the german government. they would take an affair of t press service, argues that was done illegally, even the r t journalists, deutschland journalists, their bank accounts were frozen. so like there was a tremendous pressure applied all ready and now like other russian, based in russia, you know, russian journalists getting flack for essentially just working for moscow based outlets. so this is very concerning, especially if the german police managers to establish a while
10:09 am
a significant link between the attack and the fact that they had been docs. yeah, i think or mentioned it's far from the 1st incident of hostility towards russian. since the start of the conflict and ukraine with a tux and russian nationals on their property occurring in europe on the u. s. the ostracize ation how's the effect of the country sports science and culture? with many wouldn't re, non political families being targeted reaction to events from journalists, douglas are, and human rights lawyer done public. it does seem to fit what's happening. in many places, there is attacked in new york city because he spoke russia happened to be ukranian, but of course, people don't know the difference and they beat him up anyway. i mean, still the towards russians is add an extreme high right now. and it's quite disturbing that there is a concerted effort to smear and to vilify not just the russian government,
10:10 am
but the russian people. and this is what happens when that happens. you know, this is a speech and a speech many times lead stateful actions. obviously a that's the, a violent, alter right, is growing bolder and its activities due to this war and it's going to be creating a. ready major emergency in europe, and that's the problem the europeans will have to deal with. but that requires dealing with some of the, the very grave contradictions that are raised by this war. a new round of anti russia sanctions cut include a bound on uranium in for its entering the us. the element is used to generate power in nuclear plants. those are to kill up north and report some of question whether such and that could end up hurting the receiver as much if not more than the seller. over the past few months, u. s. energy policy has been very clear about the main goal, cut off russia,
10:11 am
no more. russian oil no more russian gas, but the united states is pretty dependent on russia for another energy source, uranium nuclear power plants across america depend on russia for uranium, but not much longer. the u. s. energy secretary says that is coming to an end. we should not be sending any money to russia for any american energy or for any other reason. but what exactly does this mean? the amount of uranium coming into the united states from russia is quite significant. more than 90 percent of the uranium that fuels us power plants is imported and russia is the 3rd largest supplier in 2021. russian imports cost almost $1000000000.00. now the united states does have domestic uranium production . however, setting up a domestic uranium supply as a process that could take years. this is not something you can do overnight. and critics are worried about the environmental impact when it comes to getting this
10:12 am
vital element in nuclear power. the russian state run corporation risotto seems to be the best option. the u. s. cannot develop a commercial capability to compete against rose autumn while we depend on foreign uranium. today only rose our tillman, the energy department, a capable of producing high r, say, low enriched uranium. 20 percent of us electricity comes from nuclear power plants at this point. our grids across america are already fragile. the electrical grid of texas collapse last winter, leaving families in the cold, causing a crisis. so now it seems that in the name of hurrying russia, joe biden is willing to do even more damage to the u. s. economy. merican families can now expect that in addition to the rising cost of food and the rising cost of gas, their electricity bills will also be getting higher and higher. taylor, bob and artsy, new york, on just on this professor of economics ameritas at the university of massachusetts,
10:13 am
richard wolfe believes that even if the u. s. proclaims a bond publicly, it will still be looking at back doorways to import the russian energy resource. if mr. biden believe that the support of the sanctions program against russia would improve his chances in the election in november. i think he has been disappointed in many sanction programs. the exporting country, in this case, russia and the important country, in this case the united states can and often do e. they did the whole business by using 3rd countries, add to work a deal whereby russia sells the uranium somewhere else, and they sell it to another party and then it sells it to the united states. this
10:14 am
is, has been very common in the past, and that may well be how this gets worked out in reality, in the coming months. ah, richard wolf, let's return to the frontline in the conflict. 9 volunteer fighters are joining russian troops in the city of basia, where there's been heavy bottles around the zaria chemical plants, ukrainian forces continue to hold their cities in their position to in the city at large. they're reporting from the ground is ortiz maria from national. let's take a look. these military tribes reign greenforest men to don bus for on 240 volunteer fighters from russia. come here and do business, because this is where one of the key battles is happening right now. russian forces and how in complete control of the town have to weeks of fears fighting, but the ukraine and military supported by foreign mercenaries and nationalist battalions still holds as strategic position in the cities. industrial zone.
10:15 am
there's area chemical plant surrounded by concrete fortifications. it resembles a fortress and is hard to capture. the newcomers will support the joint forces of russia and the republic in this important fight. now wrote up here, my name is up t the commander of this unit and you are coming under my command. the fighters come empty handed here at the chechen special forces unit headquarters. they'll be given ammunition and weapons and assigned to their tasks. with your day to day, i want you to hear it doesn't matter to me what nationality you are and what religion you are. the volunteers who came here to fight to represent different nationalities from across russia's vast geography. but why they came? that's a question to which they have similar answers. but supervision is thursday i came here on the grounds of conscience for the sake of the motherland and for the elderly people. my grandmother is also a war veteran, and of course for people. first of all, the mission is critical. once does that,
10:16 am
our factory secured it on pave the way to lisa chance and save it than he has. the last 2 strong holds of ukrainian forces in the region. when they are secured to the republic will have its entire territory regained marine phenomena arte from rubbish . now natural gas prices in the us of more than double from the previous decades average. but that's not putting off europe as it seeks alternatives to russian energy. europe currently relies on russia for 40 percent of its goes, but as the continent turns its bank and moscow over the conflict in ukraine, it's ready to pay much more to import american supplies to make up parts of the shortfall. and that's not just the extra cost about an issue, fossil fuel expansion, phases resistance, or where climate concerns on the investor reluctance. nevertheless, president biden has promised washington will help its european allies meet their
10:17 am
energy needs. we're working with other nations like korea, japan cutter and others to support or effort to help the europe and allies threatened by russia with gas blackmail, and their energy needs and other ways. aggression will not when threats will not win. this is just another reminder of the imperative for europe and the world to move more and more of our power needs to clean energy. we've got the thoughts of global oil economist jill and foster, and that he fears europe could be shooting itself in the foot by turning away from russian energy. the increase in natural gas prices in the united states and canada will affect the economy in other countries adversely. and the same goes for even more. so for western europe, europe where the price is, the price is being much greater. europe is shooting itself in the foot. i think the, the dramatic expansion in the production of cheryl
10:18 am
gatson, united states, is literally as leveled off. so do i think that europe could cope without russia? i guess i think the answer is no. it, it won't be able to, it will be able to impart by bringing and gas from the united states is currently drilling and trying to expand whether or not with success in l n. j from the united states at higher costs than they guess that can be bought from russia. so those are costs to the european economists for longer and longer term deals. the number of people killed in a must explosion in the cuban capital has reportedly reached 25. the blast happened on friday when a gas leak was named sounds of attentional cause of the explosion. the 5 star hotel was closed for renovations to guests at the time of the explosion, but there were
10:19 am
a lot of workers inside emergency services remain of the site. it's unclear whether perhaps there are more victims dropped under a little bit debris there. ok to pakistan where thousands poured onto the streets of iran comes home on friday as people continue to show massive support for the former prime minister who was arrested last month addressing their tried mister can once again reiterated his claim that the current government was imposed by the united states, the leader, is also calling for new election saying that would be the main demand of a series of planned rallies in the pakistani capital. around. $2000000.00 people are expected to attend the protest in as long as that em run come was listed last month after losing a no confidence vote. although he claims washington was behind the move,
10:20 am
a few echoed by many supporters. many done as america has initiated a conspiracy around the government of him ran khan and bring in this imported government. and we boy called this government. we will continue fighting with him. ran con is on the right side and we will support him. i think americans have deceived us in the past, like on the kashmir issue. plus we had paid the full price for f. 16 cross. they charged his other dues, but did not deliver spare parts for a long time. for its part, the u. s. denies, claims that i wanted enron count out of office, but with him gone, washington is not stressing its renewed desire to work with his lumber bad in particular, in the realms of counter terrorism, and border security. well political and social commentator a sub chain lock med, dar believes many people in pakistan feel betrayed over what has been folded over the last number of weeks. the majority of the pakistani i decided to follow the
10:21 am
matter to the former prime minister focus on iran con. the prime reason for this notion is that the see iran con, as an honest leader who has been betrayed by the rule. american elements in the back to sunny institutions and social media trends and foster 3 weeks you know, completely, you know, she was that the journal public is not ready to accept the newly formed government in focus on. and they would keep demonstrating their rule stream runs on it, and just report just repeatedly, often different if you're the only reason behind the spect is that it is a completely roster political movement led by the public in favor of the leader in ron con, ellen must propose to take charge of all of the most influential tech companies in the world. he's already pledged to restore free speech on twitter. some advocacy groups are worried about in their words,
10:22 am
democracy on the platform is in danger. calling on the biggest brands in the u. s. to threaten and advertising boycott if must governance results and changes to the social networks. content policies. richard blevins, she's been taking a closer look at is no stranger to criticism that is $44000000000.00 purchase of twitter. maybe one of his most controversial news, yet at least according to the mainstream media talking heads and follow billionaires who are speaking out about his new acquisition. that includes activist groups such as media matters for america, black lives matter and women's march who sent a joint letter to twitters top advertisers, calling on them to withdraw their support from the company under mosques management, which at risk of becoming a cesspool of misinformation with your brand attached, polluting information ecosystem and at time wed trust in institutions and news media is already at an all time low we call on you to demand mosque uphold these
10:23 am
basic standards of community trust and safety. and to pull your advertising, spending from twitter, if and not in response, must pointed out that these big groups wouldn't exist without big money to funds these organizations that want to control your access to information. let's investigate. what does that investigation show? well, the money behind many of the 26 and g o z and activist groups who sign that letter has come from george soros and is open society foundation, as well as top democratic party donors and even former hillary clinton and brock. obama staffers. oh, and bill gates, who fell way behind, much in the world's richest man rankings, is now speaking out, saying he's concerned about plans for twitter to allow for speech. and how does he feel about something that says vaccines kill people or? you know, that bill gates is tracking people, is that one of the things you think should be spread so, and it's not just individuals. the mainstream media is also doing its part with
10:24 am
a recent article for the new york times, arguing that mass grew up in a bubble of white privilege in south africa, where he saw the dangers of unchecked speech. the apartheid system created a distinction between the white peoples pacifically between those who spoke africans, and those who spoke english like mr. mosques, family, as a white student coming up in the place to you, hon. his bo suburbs, he never saw the suffering of his black counterparts. aero mosque said he believed that apartheid had told his son not to discriminate, but ellen's electric car company tesla has faced serious accusations of racism. but think guessing must is racist in his upbringing is to blame. it doesn't actually match the facts. and others on twitter were quick to point that now, your headline reads like a head piece about how he didn't feel the effects of propaganda. get your actual articles. content is basically, he did in fact see all the bad things that happened when free speech is and allowed
10:25 am
. well, that piece is sure full of inconsistencies. it's as if you set out with a narrative that you couldn't find the facts to support the article literally says, born to an anti apartheid politician and fled south africa because he didn't want to participate in, in apartheid military. so by the same insinuation, anyone who has immigrated from india is a proponent of the cost system who paid for this little hit piece or did the order just come directly from the white house was, was not forget the just a few days after must reach to deal with twitter, the vitamin ministration and el plans for a dis, information board run by the department of homeland security, which immediately drew comparisons to 1980 fours ministry of truth. the crime committed, my mother admitting that he is a free speech. absolute is a good sign as to whether there is free speech is, is, is someone you don't like allowed to say something you don't like. so as the anti you must, campaign continues. it appears the money and power behind it is rooted in the fear
10:26 am
of what could happen when too much free speech is allowed in the public square of social media. i think that the, the issue surrounds the idea that, that it's not must purchasing twitter. it's the fact that he's going to open up the gates of truth. but on the other side, a lot of the things that the radical left and the democrats are doing the united states just fly against the basic principles of democracy in truth. and so what he's doing scares them because they don't get, they can check, they don't get to control the type of narrative it, he's going to bring back public discourse or, or the ability to have debate. and what they want is they want just one narrative to permeate society. now there's just some days ago before the victory de commemorations take place across russia national holiday. when people recall the sacrifices made during the great patriotic war. during the 4 years of the soviet,
10:27 am
union's involvement and international orphanage in the russian city of, of oliver became a shelter for children from different countries. tumultuous events in china brought many pupils from the country to russia. some of them even went on to serve on the front lines while others, some still children, health care for the wounded, brought to the orphanage. r t heard some of their stories. ah, ah, yup, all restored. i just remember that i was born in moscow, 936, and then when the great patriotic war began in 1941, we were sent to the red to the city of van over 300 kilometers from moscow, where the 1st international orphanage was built ah,
