ah, the turkey and croatia block in attempt by the nordic countries of finland and sweden to join nato, saying their security concerns have not been adequately addressed. almost a 1000 ukrainian troops surrender and marbles as a staff feel factory with captured near, not these from the as of battalion due to stand trial for alleged war crimes, macos lambs, the west for blaming russia for provoking a world hunger crisis as the un called on russia to restore food supplies to global market. and the u. s. either some of its sanctions against the venezuela's energy

sector as washington seeks to secure additional oil imports, despite its long running differences with crockett's, the testing live direct from us to use moscow. this is our international, i'm john thomas and certainly glad to have you with us. now turkey has expressed opposition to allowing nordic countries, sweden and finland into the nato alliance, accusing them. of having threatened to turkey is national security with economic pressure and support for military that on cra, considers terrorists. you know, tony, to here as being supporting the open door policy on nato, even before this war. but we got to this possible candidate already candidate countries. you know, we have also legitimate security concerns that they have been supporting terrorist organizations and they're also expert restrictions on defense products.
11:02 pm
initial report said turkey blocked the official process of accepting finland and sweden internet just hours after the nordic countries ended in their applications. at the headquarters of the military block on christ says if against seeing those 2 countries joined the alliance, unless they stop supporting rebel groups, particularly the kurds and, and over suspects that turkey says our terrorists, swedish and finish officials have reportedly been planning to visit on cra, for negotiations, but turkeys president says that they should not bother trying to convince him without complying with on chris demands. we did get him, he's done. our only expectation from nato allies is for them to 1st understand our sensitivity respect and finally support it. so what is our sensitivity 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 to the security organization being deprived of security. the
11:03 pm
session of the 2 nordic countries would require the approval of all 30 name may nato member states. with such a decision than requiring ratification by national parliaments and a process that could take a year. we have gauged opinions on the streets of the switch capital, where some locals have mixed feelings about their country, potentially leaving behind its traditional neutrality. i think it's a part of our country within nato. so through terry exercises of different kinds, but it still i think it's a big shift for our identity. i think it's a bad one because we have always been free from such associations. and that would be a part because i can discount people together over being dependency. and lori and so on. i think it's the right decision to make right
11:04 pm
now, but that doesn't mean that we abandon our, our foreign or defense politics because we can change not from within. i think another hot bed of resistance within nato is incorrect with its president is around me, a lot of edge following turkey and stonewalling, finland and sweden's attempt to join the block. the creation leader has called upon parliament and the countries representative to the alliance to shut down the deal, citing grievances that western countries have not pushed bosnia and herzegovina to reform. electra law to lead local corporation, community members have more autonomy. milan of it has also said that letting those nordic countries join the block would be a quote, very dangerous adventure. meanwhile, anchor has move, has sparked renew tensions within nato. as the u. s. and a number of its allies have been pushing for the nordics to join the black creases . prime minister recently asked the u. s. congress to nicks
11:05 pm
a deal to so advanced weaponry to turkey and denounced anchor as a quote source of instability. the greek leader has also express concerns about buying this proposal to approve $400000000.00 worth of weapons for turkey, including missiles and equipment for august fleet for american made f. 16 fighter jets that of greece is processing a deal to buy the latest u. s. f 35 jets in former turkish ambassador to the you told us that greece is in no position to buy expensive weapons from the us. the great, gotcha true. and so there are several reasons so that if reporting capital grease increases its standard jory as well as the water supply wise, then there will be internal c or, or greece and turkey ships. so what s corporations will trust? it agrees no is the army and it's rapidly
11:06 pm
and behind the scene again, the united states, their friends are playing a major role. another point grace is bankrupt, country and they are buying from united states to the georgia, $13000000000.00 worth claims. for example, what does this mean? oh, who is financing though? and if you consider to be and a country and that's deeply then ho, this financing is giving or assure while on cra, has been pushing back against the proposed expansion of nato. some western media outlets have been spreading calls to isolate turkey within the lines community and even pitching proposals that turkey should be kicked out of the block
11:07 pm
christmas policies that are hostile to nato. it's not an ally anymore. it's time to external turkey, nato. let it go to russia, let it go to china, let it go to one good written tradition. turkish, a political scientist owner seen on google ton says that some western powers that have been seeking to undermine turkey is the western media reflective voice of their governments. it's normal for such needs and they will issue to come out against if the western media objective, i will talk that the best that they would consider these facts. although turkey hasn't been a member of nato since 1952 western countries have never stopped their anti turkish activities. i mean, it was what kind of it is that the members of nato, like united states of america, france, germany, belgium, has to be them. and the finance and the others also,
11:08 pm
they never stop, not just the sport financially, but also finance for military terrorist organizations. like p 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, you know, more share common interests or values with natal today. so i think that, you know, if the relation school like that between toki and the best between the, the other natal member, it's possible that she quits in it.
11:09 pm
these are the latest images released by russia's defense ministry from the dunbar. city of mario pal, where more ukrainian combatants surrendered at the as of stall factory on wednesday . at least $959.00 troops are said to have handed themselves over to russian. lead forces there over the past 3 days, which is equal to gentle comments. well, the fight us from the as of style, steve works, they keep surrendering again. the process is going on rather slowly, but not because the militia to 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 de nest 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 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. us rendering soldiers are surrendering surprisingly,
11:10 pm
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, it would have made all the difference if they had received orders to surrender earlier because well, fight 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,
11:11 pm
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 wounded soldiers who surrendered from are your pals as of stall factory have been sent to a hospital in the nearby town of nose. noval, as often we heard from some of them are, were 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 with were being treated very well. i have a shrapnel wound and
11:12 pm
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 ones that chief has called for unrestricted access of russian food and fertilizers to global markets. as a hunger crisis, has been exacerbated in recent months in impoverished parts of the world. that is no effective solution to the food crazes. without reading the grade, think ukraine's looks with auction, as well as the food and fertilizer products produced by ration belittles into world markets, despite the ward and thrush, and foot, and fertilizers must have and restricted accessed to world markets without in direct impediments. but un chief gutierrez has blamed at russia's actions in ukraine for exacerbating global hunger as some of the cranes black c ports are now
11:13 pm
close to due to the ongoing war. russia has outlined that the measures it has put in place regarding should exports are aimed at protecting the domestic market. in the face of sanctions saying, it's actually the west that is responsible for the crisis. food security has been undermined for several years by the illiterate macroeconomic steps of the collective west. they were escalated in connection with a wave of unilateral and illegitimate anti russian sanctions, which undermined confidence in western governments because of the unpredictability of their actions, as well as disrupted supply chains and created disruptions in international financial flows. the statements by western officials that their bands do not affect the supply of food and fertilizers, are deceitful. russia and ukraine produced almost a 3rd of the world's wheat and half of those sunflower oil with russia also being worlds. number 2, producer of potash, a key for laser ingredient, be hindered. supply lines have contributed to emerging humanitarian crisis in some nations in the wrong through prices. evers and by 300 percent fueling outrage at
11:14 pm
the governor la mass has not. the change in prices is horrible. the new prices have limited my family's purchasing power on everything coming under said because issue thank the price changes have greatly affected every one, not just us prices of meat, eggs and fruit have all gone up drastically. prices rise within hours on yoga. iranians make most of their meals with flower, rice, a wheat, even for us, a middle class family. the new price is a very high dish with the weaker class 8 macaroni instead of meat and chicken. now even that macaroni is taken off their dinner table. we have to eat plain bread and they are even rationing that plain bread to hear the prices of essential goods have increased in iran in response to an economic crisis, which is the country it long struggling with us. lead sanctions are you an expert has highlighted to r t, the devastating humanitarian impacts that the sanctions have had on iran. very
11:15 pm
important area is the area of over compliance. that's why some of my recommendations are addressed and not only government of iran, governments which impose sanctions or international organizations, but also businesses, businesses quite often over comply and reject banks. for example, reject to do any turn sections with anyone who is beast or placed in iran. i have been reported that even foreign country diplomatic agents are facing a problem to get the sellers to the bank accounts as well as united nations organizations. so these issues, that's why i are really not even advice i request and not only now, but in the last more than the last year. i request governments, our businesses bank start to be actively engage and to develop principals, how to avoid over compliance. because over compliance affects human rights of every
11:16 pm
single individual in the country, not only or on of any country. and moreover, it affects human rights beyond the borders of the country. the u. s. is eating some of its crippling sanctions on venezuela, allowing major american oil companies chevron, to restart operations in the south american country. that's after years of washington. heavily criticizing venezuelan president nicholas maderos government and encouraging an overthrow of his leadership. washington authorized us in european oil companies to negotiate and resume operations in venezuela. on the surface, it looks like a total turn around a zigzag. the united states is saying that chevron and american oil companies can start doing business. some of the sanctions are being lifted. now you'll recall that then as wally is led by the united socialist party, i started by hugo child as than later. now it's nicholas maduro leads the country and the u. s. a has been trying to crush venezuela. the u. s. s o's crippling
11:17 pm
sanctions. they say that are intended to put maximum pressure on the country to remove its elected 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 de stabilize the country. the united states has withdrawn recognition from the venezuelan president nicholas maduro and named juan guido, as somehow being the legitimate leader of venezuela. so all of this is going on and we've heard nothing but hostile rhetoric against that is wally from us. leaders from the previous 4 administration. here's what we heard from the trump administration when it came to the government in caracas, against the repressive regime targeting murderers, inner circle, and close advisors. the regime, a former president, nicholas maduro, is illegitimate. but madura is grip and tyranny will be smashed and broken. the day
11:18 pm
after the mural regime falls. there is a bright future for the venezuelan people and take the following actions to isolate the maduro dictatorship. if you support the missouri regime, you too are subject to sanctioned. at this point, we continue to hear this kind of rhetoric coming from antony, blanket and other figures in the by the administration. they continue to refer to nicholas madero as a brutal dictator. usa has not restored diplomatic relations with that as well in government. so that's the situation. but now this new news comes in and it is understood that this is related to the changing us energy policy. usa wants 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 us energy policy will operate as they move ahead to target russia. now, despite the fact that this seems like a complete turnaround on unnamed official within the bi new ministration says that
11:19 pm
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 are not doing this to reverse trumps maximum pressure campaign. our policy overall has not changed. well, it certainly looks 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 listed that seems to indicate otherwise. so observers are going to have to watch and wait and see what develops out of this dr . jack rasmus, a professor of economics and politics and st. mary's college of california thinks this is a convenient way for us to resell venezuelan oil to western europe. i think the real thing here is that the hind, the seems a,
11:20 pm
the real issue is to allow venezuela to ship some oil to russian europe. you know, biden has made some, a real commitment to western europe if they cut off russian oil. and oh, we're where they're going to get this oil from, you know, provide western europe. well, you know, may be run as well. i think in a back door. the whole idea is to lead venezuela can produce about $800000.00 barrels a day, which is gonna what the usaa was providing roughly to euro. it'll be able to ship some of that to western europe in the short run. i think that's the thing behind the scenes that really you know, the, the real objective here on the surface, you're gonna see all this fake negotiations with the then as well it's, you know, do you, i shall never let venezuela off the hook in a restore relationship with venezuela, rwanda's president has reasserted that britain should extradite 5 suspects
11:21 pm
allegedly involved in the east african countries. 1994 genocide, that's after the u. k. blocked an earlier extradition attempt on the grounds that the suspects might not receive a fair trial. in rwanda, the legal wrangling has unfolded as britain and want to have reached a controversial deal for the u. k to to port masses of migrants to rwanda. when the u. k is sending us these migrants, they should send us the people they have accommodated for over 15 years, who committed crimes. in rwanda, we sent case files to the u. k. and investigated these are clear case files instead of being accommodated. they're in that beautiful place of the u. k. they should be in jail either in the u. k. are here. it is estimated that between april and june, 994800000 rwandans were killed within just 100 days. most of the dead were from the tootsie tribe. and most of those who perpetrated violence were hutus, rwandan, genocide, survivor and director for the african great lakes action network club. gotta buick
11:22 pm
says role one does government actually is not interested in seeking justice for the genocide. i would actually like to see justice served against the perpetrators of the genocide that includes members of the r p f which is the ruling party in rwanda. that was delayed by a guy who also had a role in the genocide, starting with the shooting down of the president's plan. in 1009 the forward that actually started the genocide. also, i would rather see the suspects trade in the u. k. given how they're one of the government treats survivors of that genocide and uses the channels out as a tool of repression inside of a wander and as blackmail against the international community. i want to give a quick example. there is a man named mob like a university professionals, professor, a musician, he and his brother, the loan survivors from the general side, and also a trust that is, that took place after the general state. he spoke about the killing of his family
11:23 pm
after the general side, but the, our b of in now he's been arrested. it's been about a year now since he was arrested in since last fall. he has been disappeared. no one has seen him anywhere in court or in public, but he has not been sentenced. so the treatment of genocide survivors shows me the, the government for one that is not interested in polk a gummy is not interested in justice for on the general side. but also because they are p f itself has some responsibilities in that general thanks. i would really see them trade in the u. k. joe biden has been among those accusing russia of spreading this information online with the use of box. but the new audit in the u. s. has revealed that many of the president's own social media followers might not be actual people or cheese rachel blevins comments? well, it appears that joe biden isn't nearly as popular as his number's claim. he is at least on twitter, that's according to
11:24 pm
a recent audit which found that out of biden's more than $22000000.00 followers. nearly half of those are actually fake account. now this audit was conducted by the software company spark, toro and they use a tool to look at everything from profile pictures to profile history, to profiles, location. and in doing so, they found that more than 49 percent of the followers on the official code us account on twitter are actually fake. now this all comes a billionaire and 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 account on their platform are fake. 20 per cent fake spam accounts, while 4 times what twitter claims could be much higher, my offer was based on twitters scc filings being accurate. twitter c e o publicly refused to show proof of less than 5 percent. this deal cannot move forward until
11:25 pm
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 russians don't want me to be the nominee. i spent a lot of money on bots on facebook and i've been taken down st. biden's a bad guy the know on bind running. so it's bad for biden, and it's also bad for traders. current owners, as it appears that the percentage of his followers on twitter or vague is actually higher than his current approval rating from the american people, which stands at just 39 percent. meanwhile, the by the administration has put on hold its plans to create a so called disinformation governance board. the initiative have faced weeks of backlash with critics describing it as it is toby and ministry of truth. one
11:26 pm
proposal was to allow verified to twitter users to edit other users tweets in response to the outcry the white house, while the newly appointed spokesperson has said that outside forces mischaracterized biden's initiative, the more to was put for it for a purpose. right? to make sure that we really did a really didn't address what was happening across the country when it came to dis information. it's going to pause. there's been a mis character ations from outside outside forces. this is what's happening. there is a pause. we did not have an involvement in that you've got the white house trying to distance themselves. now from the whole ministry of truth, this information campaign, the press secretary doing the we don't, nothing about this. i may be showing by age, but some people may remember the old sit. com hogans heroes where you have sergeant schultz. costly saying, i know nothing. i see nothing. and maybe that's what the vital administration is going to do now from completely yes, disavowed knowledge of their own ministry of truth, as he gets ironic that this,
11:27 pm
these guys are trying to do a dis information or ministry of truth to try and ferret out the truth while we know that a lot of the information being put out on his twitter account and that he relied on with the whole russian hoax was, was just, you know, made up why you're having this whole bought controversy on twitter. part of what this ministry of truth or disinformation was going to do is try to ferret out bots that were putting this information out there. i think you were probably less bots putting out this information than were followers of, of president biden. i think the best indication frankly, is that you're seeing democrats in the house in the us house retire in huge numbers . they don't want to go back to being back benchers. they don't want to lose their committee chairman chips. so you're seeing people that are leaving on the democratic side, and you've even got democratic consultants predicting a slaughter at the ballot box this november. so i think everything that we're hearing from their side would indicate that to republicans. it might be good. so the republican side, 32 minutes, that's when i'll be back with another full infection is say with this is our to international
11:28 pm
oh ah, ah ah ah, ah, a ah ah, since the break away,

the donates people's republic was been ranging and dunbar. ukrainian artillery has been shelling civilian townsend, mining villages. you're more, very love bluefield. new york. i grew up with one of your company a little above all of the 3 of the little boys wanted it was 11 and i
11:30 pm
aah! ukraine. a big and rich country that's always been hand in hand with russia until recently. 2014, a qu divides ukraine and leads to fratricidal war and on the us. a war that continues to this day on the edge of a large field near lo, ganske, the mass grave. local say that the people buried here are mostly civilians who are allegedly killed by ukrainian paramilitary groups in the summer of 2014. who does this with a mr. alcorda? what did of stuff.
