apparently powerless to do anything about storing consume appliances which hobble ready, hit a 40 year high. ah, a very well welcome because on the international with the latest world news update is a pleasure to have your company that took he has reportedly blocked the official process of accepting finland and sweden into nato. it comes to dow is off the nordic countries handed in the applications at the headquarters of the military block anchorage says it's against seeing the 2 countries join the alliance unless they stop supporting rebel groups, including cuts and hand over suspects that turkey calls terrorists, swedish on finish officials were reportedly planning to visit on career for talks, but turkey's president says they shouldn't bother trying to woo him. we get him is done. our only expectation from nato allies is for them to 1st understand our
4:02 pm
sensitivity respect and finally support it. what is our sensitivity in protecting our borders from terror attacks? you won't give us back terrorists, but you ask us for nato membership. nato is an entity for security and organization for security. therefore, we cannot say yes, the security organization being deprived security is the exception 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 that the country within nato also through terry exercises different kinds. but it's still i think it's a big shift for our identity. i think it's because we have
4:03 pm
always been free from such associations and it would be a part that can that can discount people together over being different using under lori 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 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 nato needs at a time, one of focus is on helping ukraine defeat russia's. aggression
4:04 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 express concern about biden's proposal to approve at $400000000.00 worth of weapons for turkey, including more than missiles and equipment anchorage, fleets of american made a 16 fighter jets while greece itself is processing a deal to fi. the 8th is located mostly that's 35 jets. 34, mr. is currently a motion to the waiting meeting with his american counterpart. the 3 major forces a former take it back to the, 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. so there are several reasons so that if the, for example, grease increases its territorial, well the water,
4:05 pm
so 12 hours and then the 73 percent off the edge, you know, would be in general see for grease and it's hard to ship. so what us permission to trust it agrees, you know, 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 bankrupt. country and they're buying from united states is $13000000000.00 worth of plays, for example. what does this mean? how was financing the and to, if you consider to be and a country und dash deeply. and then you know, this financing is gaming, go to sure. and while on correct pushes back against the proposed expansion of nato,
4:06 pm
so much the media are 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 on tonight. it's not to know any more. it's time to external turkey. let it go to russia, go to china, let it go to spectrum scientists and us and, and because old sam believe some lesson powers are seeking to undermine taking is to western media, reflective voice of state governments. it's normal for such needs and they will issue to come out against or if the western media objective, i will talk that the less that they would consider these facts. although turkey hasn't been a member of nato since 1952 western countries are never stopped. the
4:07 pm
anti turkish activities. i mean, it was what kind of for the members of nato, like united states of america, france, germany, belgium, sweden, and finland and others. also, they never stopped, not just the sport financially, but also for sport, military peers. organizations like with k y, p g r, q id. and the good enter is organization. also my personal opinion. as long as western countries attached to it, or just national interest, it make no sense for turkey to be in the same area with these companies. as i mean the church in nor more share common interests or values with natal today. so i think that if the relation school like that between turkey and the
4:08 pm
best between the, the other network 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 south factory on wednesday . and these 959 trips are said to have handed themselves over to russian lead forces that over the past 3 days, a correspondent, acre staff is on the ground with while the fight is from the as of style still works, they keep surrendering again the processes are going on rather slowly, but not because the militia that the next 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 next people's militia. they have said that they estimated that there were, may be hundreds of neo nazi fighters and ukrainian soldiers hiding in the catacombs
4:09 pm
underneath the as of south steel works. but in fact, the actual number turned out to be around 2500. so more than 2000 now again, people are surrendering neo nazis. us rendering soldiers are surrendering surprisingly, a lot of women among them. but the top brass, the top command of the, as of near 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, it would have made all the difference if they had received orders to surrender
4:10 pm
earlier because rope white a few even lives may have been saved by the doctors here, but in that 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, to 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 captured, that they have surrendered and they are prisoners of war or wounded soldiers who surrendered from mariel polls as of star plans being sent to a hospital and near by another was all we heard from some of them in the way we're
4:11 pm
being treated decently. there was no physical or psychological pressure on me. the food is excellent. the doctors check 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 madura, i think carrying descent in the country. washington authorized us in european oil companies to negotiate and resume operations in venezuela. on the surface it looks like a total turnaround is zigzag. the united states is saying that chevron and american
4:12 pm
oil companies can start doing business. some of the sanctions are being lifted. now you'll recall that that is waylon is led by the united socialist party, started by hugo chavez and later now it's nicholas enduro. leave the country, and the usa has been trying to cross his way. the u. s. crippling sanctions they say that are intended to foot maximum pressure on the country to remove it's a little acted leaders from a 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 destabilize the country. the united states has withdrawn recognition from the venezuelan president, nicholas mccarrow and named juan gray 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
4:13 pm
trump administration 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, but 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 the missouri 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. the 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 changing u. s. energy policy. they wants to completely cut off russian oil and already do so
4:14 pm
. they might have to start getting oil from places they had previously cut off the rearrangement of how us sanctions and us energy policy will operate as they move ahead. he target russia. now, despite the fact that this 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 trumps maximum pressure campaign. our policy overall has not changed. well, it would certainly look 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 sanctions will be lifted. that seems to indicate otherwise,
4:15 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 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 as 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 cheaper food and public transport. and some people even have to skip meals to tackle economic challenges. the government has allocated 22000000000 pounds to help, but admitted that it can't fully protect people. and the country that safeguarding
4:16 pm
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 a more hours or meeting 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 measures 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've been out of touch with reality. they're probably not really very aware of how poor lives challenges for people to stay in the present more more people becoming homeless. i'm going to rise. people are not just facing homelessness, but the ones who can can stay in the us problem are going to freeze it when you
4:17 pm
talk about very poor people, i'm not employed. how late are when by october, november, already economy, suggestion heating costs will go up again. that's going to be tough times ahead, but how long can this all hold together? you know, how long before people, 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 government 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 biogen that i should give the materials received by russia, allow us to draw an unambiguous conclusion that inside the bi laboratories of
4:18 pm
ukraine, 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 has also accused the u. s. of working on those projects with keith. according to the latest claims from russia's foreign ministry ukrainians, specialists were working on enhancing highly lethal pathogens, while also elected he being shielded with diplomatic immunity, which made them unaccountable. former 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,
4:19 pm
in which are the united states as a 3rd. there's proof that and, and, and mountain evidence rather, that the united states sir, did as such enhancements in china when you're in a conflict area and you have those pathogens around and something is hit, they're going to leak and they're gonna get in there. and if there is no remedy for them other than that than that that. busy really affects everybody in that region. so i think that this is very, very serious. it needs to be 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 and, and the concrete, they need to take it before the united nations security council. ah, the commissioner of the council of europe for human rights is appealed against the possible extradition of julie nathan's from britain to the us. the weekly thunder
4:20 pm
is currently in u. k. custody while london consider what to do with him next, as he's wanted in the us on espionage charges. it is my view that the indictment by the united states against mr. assigned to raises important questions about the protection of those that publish classified information in the public interest, including information that exposes human rights violations. the broad and vague nature of the allegations against mr. 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 julianna's song 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, 2 extra dr. songs to the us, where he's accused of revealing state secrets. when publishing troves have
4:21 pm
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. the whistleblower has been in bushes custody since 2019 independent journalist taylor huck safe. as long as extradition to be us is a blatant violation of human rights. the prosecution of jolena sanchez is the most consequential press freedom case of our modern era. not only is assigned to his life at stake and his health in his well being, but the public's right to know is at stake. and this really seeks to criminalize standard in normal journalistic activity. that journalist, 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. julian, assigning in wiki leaks for reporting on very embarrassing activities on behalf of
4:22 pm
the us government. so this is public interest journalism that julian assigned was engaged with, and he really exposed to u. s. war crimes in iraq and afghanistan. c, i a spying on innocent citizens as well as torture. so this case is very serious, and extra guiding julian assigned to the united states is a blatant violation of human rights. and we'll put many other journalists at risk in the future. joe biden has been among those accusing russia of spreading dis, information online with the use of boats with a new order in the u. s. has revealed that the president's own followers on social media, on site when he is real, as he might think, as get the data national correspondent in washington dc, rachel blevins. rachel, good to see. could you tell us more about this audit and his revelations? well, it appears that job, ivan isn't nearly as popular as his number's claim. he is at least on twitter,
4:23 pm
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 sport 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 hold. 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 twitters s t. c. filings being accurate, twitter c o publicly refused to show proof of less than 5 percent. this deal cannot
4:24 pm
move forward until he does now. biden 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 the russians don't want me to be the nominee. 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 and running so it's bad for biden, and it's also bad for twitter. 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? well, thanks very much for the day. fast r t re talk levingston. thank you. a moscow how's the keys?
4:25 pm
the west of an unprecedented search of russ espo b as an increasing number of russian sports on cultural figures. a band from performing and some western countries, ukrainian american pianists, valentina fit size now also facing about in canada that you want a symphony orchestra has officially cuts her from their program. have a critical remark. she made about the conflict in ukraine and dumbass within 2015. it was performed for the residence of don. yes. and on the may 9th victory de anniversary. she also how the concerts in mary o poll. we talked to the pianist earlier about western attitude towards russian office. i was for beast for 80 years. where have you been? because i was thinking like 8 years ago in paris on untoward humans ration save children of that bus. i think it's some kind of for almost sadistic pleasure. they think, you know, you're in europe, europe, they say, well, we have to cancel russian. guess it's fancy consul ration artists and still
4:26 pm
received. guess you know what i think would be quite so was if you cancel, guess if you don't like us so much and you don't cancel culture. i think that artists should not really for themselves political illustration. i know there's to convert the lot, and i also think that the audience would be able to listen to artist. you know, we should all leave our differences back home because when we listen for mine enough or kick off your beethoven, it's our common harry fish. as civilizations human beings, it belongs to everyone. it doesn't discriminate you ok. gosti does not discriminate whether you like mr. fortune or mr. bite. she doesn't care. this is about music. this about us. the managing director of one of the world's biggest opera houses is boasted to, to russian prank callers, that being one of the 1st to ban russian artists from performing surge. donnie also discussed the bavarian state opera, suspension of his quote, very good friend valerie gave in his call with renowned russian pranksters van and
4:27 pm
lexus. those players deal was i did. i was the 1st to suspend russian artists who a closely associated with russian propaganda uses of and despite the fact that he is a very good friend of mine, he's my suspended the orchestra director, valerie kirk. yes, and this was despite the fact that we have known each other for 35 years, but i knew i also suspended opera, singer and a tread co and some ballet dances who are very close to the regime. this is outrageous. i think this has no place in culture whatsoever. exactly, because we can only look to classical music. i don't talk about that in there. oh, it's the most non violent art, you know, unlike even cinema or theater, or pink and it's, and it's non while and we cannot express well as we're neutral. hill music starts, we're hurts ends and we cannot do much in or we can say that we're pro peace, we're against something, but all we can do is play or see and, and when is the steam with director of, you know,
4:28 pm
bavarian or better says up he divides people in groups accordion towards the sea. and i also had experience. i had let a cancellation letter from what a big european 1st you're also by wire in my so european weeks and after i perform it in body and for people with the spirit in the road to me. unfortunately, because you perform it on such a day in my to open it means to you actually support which is aggression. me thanks for keeping his company here and archie international always plenty more stories to be found on our website, artie dot com. ah for
4:29 pm
ah ah oh when i was showing wrong when oh please just don't hold the world yet to shape out these days because the advocate and engagement it was the trail when so many find themselves worlds
