picking out the extra work to help themselves out with the government, apparently powerless to do anything about storing consumer prices, which hub already hit a 40 year high with a very warm welcome. this is on the international with the latest world news update . it's a pleasure to have your company that took he has reportedly blocked the official process of accepting finland and sweden and to nato becomes his dowers off. the nordic countries handed in the applications at the headquarters of the military block anchor says it's against seeing the 2 countries joined the alliance unless they stopped supporting rebel groups including cuts and handover suspects that turkey calls terrorists, swedish on finish. officials were reportedly planning to visit encore for talks, but turkey's presidency. they shouldn't bother trying to woo him. with him is our
2:02 pm
only expectation from nato allies is for them to 1st understand our sensitivity respect and finally support it. what is our sensitivity in protecting our borders from terror attacks? you won't give us back terrorism, but you ask us for nato membership. nato is an entity for security and organization for security. therefore, we cannot say yes to the security organization being deprived of security. the accession of the to nordic countries requires the approval of all 30 nato members with their decision then requiring ratification by national parliaments. and that process is expected to take up to one year. we gazed opinions on the streets of the swedish capital, where some locals have mixed feelings about ditching that countries neutrality. i think it's a part of the country within nato, also through terry exercises of different kinds. but it still, i think it's a big shift for our identity. i think it's
2:03 pm
a bad one because we have always been free from such associations and we would be a part that can, that can discount people together with being dependency. and laurie and so on. i think it's the right decision to make right now, but that doesn't mean that we abandon our, our foreign land or defense politics because we can change not from within. i think. and chris move has led to fresh tensions within nato with the us and its allies pushing for sweden and finland to join. the blog is not the only point of tension between the nato member states, though with greece. his prime minister has asked us congress to nick the deal to sell advanced weaponry to turkey, denouncing ankara as a source of instability. the last thing that natal needs out of time, one of focus is on helping ukraine defeat russia's. aggression
2:04 pm
is another source of instability on nato's south eastern flank and ask you to take this into account when you make defense procurement decisions concerning the eastern mediterranean. the great leader has expressed concern about biden's proposal to approve at $400000000.00 worth of weapons for turkey, including more than miss styles and equipment, anchorage fleets of american made f. 16 fighter jets, while greece itself is processing a deal to buy the latest located marty, that $35.00 jets cookies for mister is currently in washington awaiting a meeting with his american counterpart or 3 major forces. former take some passes to the you told us that greece is in no position to buy expensive weapons from the united states. the degree got to choose it. and so there are several reasons. so that if for the, for example, grease increases its territorial,
2:05 pm
was there water still to one of ours? and then the 73 percent off, as you know, would be internal c for grease and in charge of ships. so what us permission to try it agrees now is the army gets on the record, leave it behind the scene again, the united states, our friends are playing a major role. another point, greece is a country and they're buying from united states for $13000000000.00 worth of the claims. for example. what does this mean? ho? who's financing the and to, if they're considered to be, and a country und dash deeply. and then, you know, this financing is gaming go sure. and while on cra,
2:06 pm
pushes back against the proposed expansion of nato, so much the media, listen now spreading close to isolate turkey within the alliance community. and even pitching proposals that the country should be kicked out of the us led block christmas policies for us all tonight. it's not an hour anymore. it's time stone, turkey. they don't let it go to russia. go to china, let it go to take a special scientist and because they'll, sam, believe somebody empowers are seeking to undermine taking is to western media selective warsaw state governance. it's normal for such needs and they will issue to come out against if the western media objective, i will talk to the less that they would consider these facts. although turkey
2:07 pm
hasn't been a member of nato since 1952 western countries, 7 never stopped the anti turkish activities. i mean, it was what kind of for us that the members of nato, like united states of america, france, germany, belgium, to be them and the finance and the others also, they never stop, not just the sport financially, but also for meeting terrorist organizations like p j k y, p g r, p y v, and the letters organization also my personal opinion. as long as western countries, a doctor to purchase national interest, it make no sense for turkey to be in the same earlier with these companies. as i mean, the church in nor more share common interests or what he was with natal today. so i think that, you know,
2:08 pm
if the relation school like that between turkey and the best between the, the other nato, a member, it's possible that she can quit in april. ah, let's go now to the latest pictures when he's by rushes, defense ministry from the dumbass city of marielle, paul, when more ukrainian competence surrendered at the as of style factory on wednesday . and he's $959.00 trips, a said to have handed themselves over to russian. lead force is that over the past 3 days, a correspondent egleston is on the ground with well, the fight is from the as of style still works. they keep surrendering again. the process is going on rather slowly, but not because the militia that, and that's people's republic or russia, are reluctant to take in these prisoners of war. but rather because there were so many of them, in fact, the commanders of the de nest people's militia. they have said that they estimated that there were,
2:09 pm
may be hundreds of neo nazi fighters and ukrainian soldiers hiding in the catacombs underneath. the as of south feel works, but in fact, the actual number turned out to be around 2500. so more than 2000 now again, people are surrendering neo nazis are surrendering. soldiers are surrendering. surprisingly, a lot of women among them. but the top brass, the top command of the, as of neo nazi battalion, the ones that were making statements that were appealing to the pope, to the authorities, to the international community publicly. they are still down there in the bunkers and it is unclear as to when they will surrender. and in fact, what they're planning to do next. now those who are injured because there are quite a few of those they are, they receive medical care, they are in a very poor state. many have burns all over their bodies. many have lost limbs, or in general their, their wounds are infected. and in fact,
2:10 pm
it would have made all the difference if they had received orders to surrender earlier because rope white a few even lives may have been saved by the doctors have internet people's republic . so, but again, they did not receive that order. they received orders to stay, put the ukrainian authorities, the ukrainian command, and made the decision to keep all those very, very badly injured people without access to proper medicine. again, they keep surrendering and those who are healthy, they aren't being placed in a hotel or anything like that. they're being placed role in the penitentiary for let's ease again, not because they have received any sentence already, but rather this is how the authorities here are sending a message that these people they have been. 5 captured that they have surrendered and they are prisoners of war or wounded soldiers who surrendered from mariel polls as of star plans are being sent to a hospital in nearby. another was all we heard from some of them pushing in were
2:11 pm
being treated decently. there was no physical or psychological pressure on me. the food is excellent, the doctors checked my leg and said everything will be fine. so a patient were being treated very well. i have a shrapnel wound and a torn tendons. they help us treat us and they said that after half a year of rehabilitation, everything will be fine. with the doctors provided me with 1st aid bandages and food. i really can't complain. the u. s. is eating some of its crippling sanctions on venezuela, allowing major american oil company chevron to restart operations in the country off the years of washington. heavily criticizing the government of president maturer as encouraging descent in the country. washington authorized us in european oil companies to negotiate and resume operations in venezuela. on the surface it looks like
2:12 pm
a total turnaround is zigzag the united states is saying that chevron and american oil companies can start doing business. some of the sanctions are be, live it. now you'll recall that then as wally is led by the united socialist party, started by hugo chavez. and later now it's nicholas manero to leave the country. and the usa has been trying to cross his way on the us crippling sanctions. they say that are intended to put maximum pressure on the country to remove it's a little acted leaders from the socialist party. there have been qu attempts where the united states has been proven to be involved in trying to overthrow the government trying to have a military coup trying to stabilize the country. the united states has withdrawn recognition from the venezuelan president nicholas madero and named juan guido is somehow being the legitimate leader of that as well. so all of this is going on and we've heard nothing but hostile rhetoric against that israel, from us leaders from the previous 4 administration. here's what we heard from the
2:13 pm
trumpet ministration. when it came to the government in caracas, against the repressive regime targeting matures inner circle and close advisors, the regime, a former president nicholas madura is illegitimate madura griffin. tyranny will be smashed and broken. the day after the majority regime falls, there is a bright future for the venezuelan people and take the following actions to isolate the duro dictatorship. if you support them enduro regime you too are subject to sanctions. at this point, we've continued to hear this kind of rhetoric coming from antony blink and then other figures in the bible ministration. they continue to refer to nicholas madero as a brutal dictator. usa has not restored diplomatic relation with that as well and government . so that's the situation, but now this new news comes in and it is understood that this is related to the
2:14 pm
changing us energy policy. you had, they want to completely cut off russian oil. and already to do so, they might have to start getting oil from places they had previously cut off the rearrangement of how un sanctions and u. s. energy policy will operate as they move ahead, the target russia. now, despite the fact that it seems like a complete turnaround on unnamed official within the, by the ministration says that the trump era policies of maximum pressure are still in effect. this isn't a policy change. we want to be very clear about this point. sanctions on the missouri regime will remain in place. we're not doing this to reverse trump's maximum pressure campaign. our policy overall has not changed. well, it certainly looked like a shift in policy. however, they maintain the goal is still the same. they are still trying to the stabilize and bring down the bad as well and government with maximum pressure. but on the surface, the fact that now chevron is moving in and now american companies will be able to do business at some thanks and will be lifted. that seems to indicate otherwise,
2:15 pm
so observers are going to have to watch and wait and see what develops out of this . u. k. inflation and consumer prices have had a 40 year reco reaching 9 percent last month, according to the latest data. the cost of essentially like food and transport, rising it to record pace, jeopardizing low and middle income families, many of whom are forced to spend the whole salaries on energy bills and rely on food banks to feed their families. household calls to now up by more than 50 percent and more increases are not being ruled out by the official regulates well right now the u. k. is the highest inflation rate among the strongest european economies and the g 7 group or to reduce expenses. many of given up painting homes are decided to go out less 44 percent of those surveyed have switch to cheap food and public transport. and some people even have to skip meals to tackle economic challenges. the government has allocated 22000000000 pounds to help,
2:16 pm
but admitted that it can't fully protect people. and the countries that safeguarding minister has proposed people work extra hours or find a better job. make sure that people are able to protect themselves better. whether that is by taking or more hours leading to a better paid job, some people, they may be able to access additional hours. but of course it's, it's not going to work the people who are already working in 3 jobs. and that's why we need to have the other matches in place, such as the all the help that we're putting into the schools that help with the local authorities. from the conservatives. for a long time, we get out of touch with reality. they're probably not really very aware of how the changes for people to stay in the present time, much more becoming homeless. i'm going to rise. people are not just facing homelessness, but the ones who can understand the problem going to freeze it. when you talk about
2:17 pm
very poor people, i'm not employed how late i went by october, november already economy, suggesting that eating costs will go up again. can be tough times ahead of how long can this all hold together? you know, how long before people, if it's not the press and people themselves and so should need to start asking really questions. one of those will be, you know, how much money do we really need to spend? what should you spend when we should be spending 1300000000 pounds on military 8. so you can go, which could be spent on creating jobs or use training rushes foreign ministry has leveled fresh accusations against the usaa saying it has proof that washington conducted a legal development of bio weapons in signed ukraine prior to russia's military operation. that by watching that i should get the materials received by russia, allow us to draw an unambiguous conclusion that inside the bile borders of ukraine
2:18 pm
. in the immediate vicinity of russia, the development of biological weapons was carried out with the support of private american companies affiliated with the u. s. military department. earlier this week, during an international security meeting, vladimir putin said russia has documentary evidence of bio weapons labs in ukraine . the kremlin is also a keys, the u. s. of working on those projects with keith. according to the latest claims from russia's foreign ministry, ukrainian specialists were working on enhancing highly lethal pathogens, while also allegedly being shielded with diplomatic immunity, which made them unaccountable for the pentagon analysts to, michael believes these. the u. s. has apparently been using ukraine as a proxy for illegal weapons research. united states isn't allowed to do that in the united states. and we, we've seen a, a summer issue arise with just the origins of coven 19 in which are
2:19 pm
the united states as a 3rd. there's proof that and, and mountain evidence rather, that the united states sir, did such enhancements in china when you're in a conflict area and, and you have those pathogens around and something is hit, they're going to leak and they're going to get in there. and if there is no remedy for them, other than that, than that, that really affects everybody in that region. so i think that this is very, very serious. it needs to be hot, the, the importance of it needs to be heightened. and that's why i'm suggesting that if that, if russian authorities have that evidence and it's very, very explicit m m, the concrete, a need to take it before the united nations security council. the commissioner of the council of europe for human rights is appealed against the possible extradition of julian assange from britain to the us. the weekly thunder is currently in
2:20 pm
u. k. custody while london consider what to do with him next, as is wanted in the us on espionage charges. it is my view that the indictment by the united states against mister assigned to raises important questions about the protection of those that published classified information in the public interest, including information that exposes human rights violations. the broad and vague nature of the allegations against mister assange and of the offences listed in the indictment are troubling. as many of them concern activities at the core of investigative journalism in europe and beyond. consequently allowing mr. sanchez extradition on this basis would have a chilling effect on media freedom and could ultimately hamper the press and performing its task as a purveyor of information and a public watchdog and democratic societies. last month, julian assange moved a step closer to extradition following a decision by a london magistrate's court. the routing formerly issued an order at the end of april to extradite the songs to the us,
2:21 pm
where he is accused of revealing state secrets. when publishing troves have classified us military documents on wiki leeks, thus, despite the exact same cold, runing against his extradition in january last year. so i think possible safety risks for songs in the us, but with a blow. it has been in bushes, custody since 2019 independent journalists. taylor huck safe. as long as extradition to be us is a blatant violation of human rights. the prosecution of join assigned is the most consequential press freedom case of our modern era. not only is this time to the life at stake and his health and his well being, but the public right to know is at stake. and this really seeks to criminalize standard in normal journalistic activity that journalists engage in all the time. it will really fundamentally shape how journalists can continue on with their work . and this is also of course, a retaliation against you. juliana sanchez with you leeks for reporting on very
2:22 pm
embarrassing activities on behalf of the us government. so this is public interest journalism that julian assigned was engaged with and he really so us war crimes in iraq and afghanistan. c, i, a buying on innocent citizens is low torture, so this case is very serious and extra dating. joining us on to the united states is a blatant violation of human rights and will put many other journalists at risk in the future. joe biden has been among those accusing russia of spreading disinformation online with the use of boats with a new audit in the us as we revealed that the president's own followers on social media as actually as real as he might think. it's going to details not correspondent, in washington, d. c. rachel blevins. rachel, good to see. you could just tell us more about this audit and this revelations well, it appears the job. ivan isn't nearly as popular as his number's claim. he is at
2:23 pm
least on twitter. that's according to a recent audit which found that out of bivens more than $22000000.00 followers. nearly half of those are actually fake accounts. now this audit was conducted by the software company spark, toro and they use a tool to look at everything from profile pictures or profile history to profile location. and in doing so, they found that more than 49 percent of the followers on the official post account on twitter are actually fake. now this all comes as billionaire on mosque has announced that he is putting his $44000000000.00 deal to buy twitter on pole because he says he doesn't quite believe twitters claim. that less than 5 percent of the accounts on their platform are fake. 20 percent fake spam accounts, while 4 times what twitter claims could be much higher by offer was based on twitter s t c. filings being accurate. twitter ceo publicly refused to show proof
2:24 pm
of less than 5 percent. this deal cannot move forward until he does now bite and has yet to respond specifically to this report. however, in the past, he has talked a lot about bots or more specifically russian bonds. so it does raise the question of how he would feel about these new claims that nearly half of his own followers are those bots he claims to be so concerned about the russians don't want me to be the nominee. and i spent a lot of money on botch on facebook and i've been taken down st. biden's a bad guy didn't know one by running so it's battered biden, and it's also bad for twitters current owners. as it appears that the percentage of his followers on twitter that are fake is actually higher than his current approval rating from the american people, which stands at just 39 percent. okay, rachel, thank you very much for the day. thanks ortiz rachel blevins. thank you.
2:25 pm
moscow hows accuse the west of an unprecedented surge of russ espo b as an increasing number of russian sports on cultural figures are banned from performing and some western countries, ukrainian american pianists. valentina lafitte size now also facing about in canada . and so symphony orchestra has officially cuts her from their program as a critical remark. she made about the conflict in ukraine and dumbass within 2015 and they said, so has performed for the residents have done yes. count on the may not victory day anniversary. she also how the concerts in mario poll. we talked to the pianist earlier about western attitude towards russian artists. i was for beast for 80 years. when have you been? because i was thinking like, 8 years ago in paris on anti water, humans ration save children of the bus. i think it's some kind of for almost sadistic pleasure. they think, you know, you're in europe, you replace it or we have to cancel, rush, and guess instead the council,
