well support, we choose to look so common ground a with turkey and croatia block an attempt by the nordic countries, finland and sweden to join nato, saying that their security concerns have not been adequately address almost a 1000 ukrainian troops surrender at mario pals. i was on stall steel factory with captured neo nazis from the as of the challenge due to stand to trial for lead war
12:01 am
crimes. with accessed wouldn't market without in dotted impediment. the un calls on russia to restore food supplies to global markets, as moscow puts a retaliatory ban on exports of fertilizers and grains in response to western sanctions over russia's military offensive in ukraine. and the u. s. e 's as some of its sanctions against venezuela's energy sector, as at washington seems to secure additional oil imports. despite its long running differences with crockett. a broadcasting lab direct from our studio in moscow. this is our 2 international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you. with us now turkey has expressed an opposition to allowing nordic countries sweden and finland into the nato alliance, accusing them of having threatened to turkey's national security with economic pressure and support for merchants that ankara considers terrorists tony to care
12:02 am
as being supporting the open door policy or nato, even before this war. but with regard to this possible candidate already candidate countries. you know, we have also legitimate security concerns that they have been supporting terrorist organizations. and there are also export restrictions on defense products. initial reports said turkey blocked the official process of accepting finland and sweden into nato just hours after the nordic countries handed in their applications . at the headquarters of the military block on christ says it's against the seeing those 2 countries joined the alliance unless they stop supporting rebel groups, particularly the kurds and hand over suspects. the turkey says are terrorists, swedish and finish. officials have reportedly been planning to visit anchor for negotiations, but turkey's president says they should not bother trying to convince him without
12:03 am
complying with on chris demands. we took the game is done, or 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 session of the 2 northern countries would require the approval of all 30 needle member states with such a decision than requiring ratification by national parliaments and a process that could take a year with gauge to opinions on the streets of the swedish capital, where some locals have mixed feelings about their country, potentially leaving behind its traditional neutrality. i think it's part of the country within nato. also through it exercises different kinds. but
12:04 am
it 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 we would be a part that can let him discount people together over meeting, different leasing and laurie. and so 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 the problem with in. i think another hot bed of resistance within nato is in croatia with its president is around a lot of which following turkey in stonewalling, finland and sweden's attempts to join the block. the creation leader has called upon parliament and the country's representative to the alliance to shut down the
12:05 am
deal, citing grievances that western countries have not pushed bosnia and herzegovina to reform electoral laws. let local creation and community members have more autonomy . malala, which has also said that letting those northern countries that joined the blog would be a quote, very dangerous adventure. meanwhile, chris move has sparked renewed attentions within nato as the u. s. and a number of its allies have been pushing for the 2 nordic countries to join the block. recess prime minister recently asked the us congress to next a deal to sell advanced weaponry to turkey and denounce as a quote, source of instability. the greek leader has also expressed concerns about biden's proposal to approve $400000000.00 worth of weapons for turkey, including missiles and equipment for us. fleet of american made f. 16 fighter jets that's while greece is processing a deal to buy the latest u. s. f. 35, if former turkish ambassador to the you told us that greece is in no position to
12:06 am
buy expensive, expensive weapons from the u. s. the degree got to choose it. so there are several reasons, so that if for the, for example, grease increases its territorial with the water. so 12 hours a would be in general c for grease and it's hard to ship. so what us permission to trust it agrees it now is the army and get some 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 for $13000000000.00 worth of claims. for example. what does this mean? ho? who's financing the?
12:07 am
and it is, if you consider to be a and a country und dash deeply, and then you know, this financing is gaming, go to sure. while ankara has been pushing back against the proposed expansion of nato. some western media outlets have been spreading calls to isolate turkey. within the lions community and even pitching proposals that turkey should be kicked out of the book, pursues policies that are hostile to nato. it's not an adult any more. it's time to expound turkey from nato let it go to russia. but if go to china, let it go to around good written turkish political scientist, owner seen on google ton says that some western powers have been seeking to undermine tricky. is this done made the voice of state governments. it's normal
12:08 am
for such needs and they will issue to come out again to start. if the western media objective, i will talk that the best that they would consider these facts. although turkey has been a member of nato since 1952 western countries, 7 never stopped the 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, didn't, and the finance and the others also, they never stop, not just the sport financially, but also find it for me to produce organizations like p k y, p g r, p y v and the good interest organization also my personal opinion. as long as western countries, a doctor to national interest, it make no sense for turkey to be in the same area with these companies. as i mean,
12:09 am
the church no more shared common interests or what was with natal today. so i think that, you know, if the relation school like that between turkey and the best between the, the other nato member, it's possible that she quits in it. oh, and we have some news just in right now, at least one civilian has been reported killed and several wounded in the shelling of a russian village of church. cana, near the border with ukraine. the governor of the surrounding course region has accused the ukrainian military of conducting the strikes, which demanded or damage. several houses with local distillery emergency services have been working to put out fires and rescue local residents earlier moscow warranty of not to attack russian territories. otherwise, the russian military would attack, kills decision making. centers, of course,
12:10 am
on his room is following this and we will keep you updated as we get more information. and of course, it will be developing throughout the morning. now these are the latest images released by russia's defense ministry from the dumbass city of marble, where more ukrainian combatants surrendered at the as a small factory. on wednesday, at least $959.00 troops. i said to have handed themselves over to russian lead forces. there, over the past 3 days are easy, was done off comments. while the fighters from the as of style still works, they keep surrendering again. the processes are going on rather slowly, but not because the militia internets, 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 maybe hundreds of neo nazi fighters and ukrainian soldiers hiding in the catacombs underneath the as of south steel works. but in fact,
12:11 am
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 order to surrender earlier because rope white a few even lives may have been saved by the doctors have that in that people's
12:12 am
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 well 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 you able to also stall factory, have been sent to a hospital in the nearby town of nova adults. we heard from some of them and in were being treated decently. there was no physical or psychological pressure
12:13 am
on me. the food is excellent, the doctors checked my leg and said everything will be fine. so from a position that 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 us. as a doctors provided me with 1st aid, vantages, and food. i really can't complain. the west has called for unrestricted access of russian food and fertilizers to global markets, while at the same time slamming moscow for allegedly, exacerbating a hunger crisis in recent months. in impoverished parts of the world. that is no effective solution to the food crisis. without reintegrating ukraine's will with auction, as well as the food and fertilizer products produced by russian bellows into world markets. despite the walk and thrush and foot and fertilizers must have and
12:14 am
restricted accessed to world markets. without indirect impediments, some of tried to blame the sanctions imposed on russian on the russian federation by the united states and many other countries. for worsening this crisis, this is false. russia has leaning its wall with another terrible but more silent weapon. hannah and deeper lation dresser has long cig ring long sucking a deal that foods crisis. but while un chief gutierrez has blamed russia's actions in ukraine for worsening global food shortages, russia has outlined that the measures it has put in place regarding food 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 a collective west. they were escalated in connection with
12:15 am
a wave of unilateral and illegitimate anti russian sanctions, which undermine 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 or deceitful. russia and ukraine produce almost a 3rd of the world's wheat and half of the sunflower oil with russia also being the world's number 2 producer of potash a. he fertilizer ingredient of the hindered supply lines have contributed to emerging humanitarian crises. and some nations in iran, through prices have risen by 300 percent fueling outrage at the gulf. lumber, sadness. the change in prices is horrible. the new prices have limited my family's purchasing power on everything. you tom, you understand because the, the price changes have greatly affected everyone, not just us prices of meeting eggs and fruit have all gone up drastically. prices rise within hours on yoga. iranians make most of their meals with flower, rice,
12:16 am
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 all. the prices of essential goods have increased in iran in response to an economic crisis with the country long struggling with us lead the sanctions. are you an expert has highlighted to r t, the devastating humanitarian impact that the sanctions have had on iran? very important r e is the area of all the 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 transactions with anyone who is beast of placed in iran. i have
12:17 am
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 seen the last more than the last year. i request governments, businesses bank start to be actively engage and to develop principals, how to avoid over compliance. because over compliance affects human rights of every single individual in the country, not only are on of any country and to morrow it affects human rights beyond the borders of the country. the u. s. is easing some of its crippling sanctions on venezuela allowing a major american oil company chevron to restart operations in the south american country. that's after years of washington heavily criticizing venezuela, president nicholas maderos government and encouraging an overthrow of his
12:18 am
leadership. 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 oil companies can start doing business. some of the sanctions are being lifted. now you'll recall that then as whale 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 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. that 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
12:19 am
this is going on and we've heard nothing but hostile rhetoric against venezuela, 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 griffin, tyranny will be smashed and broken the day after the maduro 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 madura 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 biden ministration. they continue to refer to
12:20 am
nicholas maduro 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 bio new 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 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
12:21 am
and bring down the bad as well and government with maximum pressure, but on the surface the back. but 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. 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 at st. mary's college of california thinks that this is a convenient way for us to resolve venezuelan oil to western europe. i think the real thing here is that the hind, the seems a, the real issue is to allow venezuela to ship some oil to russia. europe, you know, biden has made some real commitments 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
12:22 am
barrels a day, which is gonna what the usaa was providing roughly to europe. it'll be able to ship some of that to, to western europe in the short run. i, 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 venezuela to know, do you, i shall never let venezuela off to hook in a restore relationship with venezuela. rwanda's president has reasserted that britain should extradite 5 suspects allegedly involved in the east african countries. 1994 genocide, that's after the u. k. blocked in 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 ruin i have, i want, i have reached a controversial deal for the u. k. to deport masses of migrants to rwanda. when the
12:23 am
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 1994, 800000 rwandans were killed within just 100 days. most of the dead were from the tootsie tribe. and most of those who perpetrated the violence were hutus rwandan, genocide, survivor and a director for the african great lakes action network cloud. gotcha, duke, who says that 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 a which is the ruling party in rwanda that was delayed by them who also had
12:24 am
a role in the genocide starting with the shooting down of the president's plan in $1094.00 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 wonder and as black male against the international community. i want to give a quick example. there is a man named a university professionals professor, a musician, he and his brother loan survivors from the genocide and also atrocities that took place. after the genocide, he spoke about the killing of his family after the general side, but the r p f. and 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 government for one that is not interested in polk
12:25 am
a gummy is not interested in justice for on the genocide, but also because they are p. f itself has some responsibilities. in that genocide, i would rather see them trade in the u. k. joe biden has been among those of choosing russia of spreading this information online with the use of bots. but a new audit in the u. s. has revealed that many of the president's own social media followers might not actually be real people or he's ritual blevins comments. well, it appears that job. ivan isn't nearly as popular as his number's claim. he is at 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 sport toro, and they use a tool to look at everything from profile pictures to profile history to profile location. and in doing so, they found that more than 49 percent of the followers on the official quotas
12:26 am
account on twitter are actually sake. now this all comes as billionaire ilan mosque has announced that he is putting his $44000000.00 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. my offer was based on twitters s t. c. filings being accurate. twitter ceo publicly refused to show proof of less than 5 percent. this deal cannot move forward until he does now bitin 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
12:27 am
the nominee. i spent a lot of money on botch on facebook and they've been taken down st. biden's a bad guy, the no one bite and running. so it's battered biden, and it's also bad for traders. 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. meanwhile, the by the ministration has put on hold its plans to create the so called disinformation governance board. the initiative had face weeks of backlash with critics describing it as a dis toby and ministry of truth. one proposal was to allow verified twitter users to edit other users tweets. in response to the outcry, the white house is newly appointed spokesperson has said that outside forces miss characterized biden's initiative. the more it was put forth for a perfect right to make sure that we really did at and really to did address what was happening across the country when it came to dis information. it's going to
12:28 am
pause. there's been a mis characterizations 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 that, we know 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 divide it ministration is going to do. now from completely yes, disavowed knowledge of their own ministry of truth. as it gets ironic that this, these guys are trying to do a distant 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 for you 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 there were probably less bots
12:29 am
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 ships. so you're seeing people that are leaving on the democratic side, and you've even got democratic consultants, you know, 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 for the republican side that as a for me, this hour and about 30 minutes and 30 seconds. i'll be back with another phone. fresh local news, stay with us. i change national. ah, what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on, often very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resist. i don't see
12:30 am
how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk about stopping what she didn't see to she actually we're not in wiley, i'm actually on their point to this. there's a lot osha, laura, that the she cus him. yeah, i do the school g, f, q 3 up. isaiah. you which is leroy had all shaded, saw chris, you who did request with radio are still pretty lessee and about the warrior in the city on the phone service you want talk with a little should've done boss.
