9:04 am
stories deep into the ground. on this side, the ground is dented from the bombs and shelves coming down from keeps forces. but as often as the target, the front lines, the ukrainians also bombed in that city itself was 2 cookie pies. if what weapons do the ukrainian force use ordering of thought, they have quite capable weapons, including flame throwers and mortars, also long range artillery. they have entrenched themselves extensively then leader nets. republics, forces are firing back relentlessly in a bit to keep the enemy artillery at bay window for jose unclaiming lightly deliveries from the north and the east russian troops are attempting a pin, some movement against the ukrainians in a day. of course, the primary objective of the militia here is to hold the ground until the village
9:05 am
is fully encircled, preventing any one from breaching the perimeter. but the garrison is thirsty for a fight. poor things are quite intense here on the front line. so far we are doing fine, but we should be advancing with him. we don't actually have much time. most of the troops here are veterans who have been fighting against caves, forces since 2014 for them. this war is unfinished business and they are determined to get it over with once and for all hamburgers done of reporting from the don bass r t a former french army thaw j. his recently returned from ukraine. his question why his country keep sending weapons tiki as he say, such donations, legitimized the neo nazi as of battalions position and ukrainian army. we will see you here as the as off emblem, which is the same emblem used by the s as battalion. here it is, it has the same letter, n is just upturned, and here you can see the symbol of one of the battalions of the 3rd right there. it
9:06 am
is a circle with the raise arranged to like stairs. the symbol is also reproduced here . and even without any changes, why i'm showing this, so people understand jenkins, we will do what is succession. good. can you repeat? because you're exactly, you know, so they just, um, turned to the letter n, u taken from the ss emblem, while the symbol of the 3rd right hand remains unchanged, that it means the as of emblems. he does a neo nazi symbol of the ss. and the 3rd right, was image comma ruby. how can you describe and justify the fact that ukrainian forces using the assess and 3rd reich, symbols are now receiving weapons which france and europe is supplying to crane? just to make it clear, france and europe are sending weapons and ammunition ukrainians. the as a battalion is ukrainian military force. so was getting these weapons and ammunition and young, it is part of the ukrainian army, victor, right? how can france and europe justify the fact that a neo nazi battalion is being provided with weapons and ammunition resume through
9:07 am
the the french president has promised his ukrainian counts part vladimir landscape . it on supplies to chaos, will increase quote in intensity. meanwhile, the u. s. senate has approved of $40000000000.00 aid package to ukraine despite republican lawmakers warning there's a serious lack of oversight, of where exactly that money might end up in a package. unlike a previous bill passed in march, say nothing about prohibiting the sending of weapons to they as a battalion ortiz cannibal reports. the added state has just passed a $40000000000.00 aid package to ukraine. now it's important to note that previous us a package is ukraine, providing weapons and other supplies has stipulated that those supplies do not end up in the hands of the notorious. as ob battalion, the neo nazi fighting division in ukraine. none of the funds made available by this act may be used to provide arms training or other assistance to the off battalion.
9:08 am
now what's particularly disturbing is that this recent package does not include this language. it does not specify that the as a battalion cannot. ready receive assistance from the united states. what more it appears that weaponry from nato has apparently ended up in the hands of the battalion already. you look at the as the battalions official, twitter, they seem to be highlighting weapons like a match for. ready which is an anti tank weapon that has been among the weapons that nato has provided to you. grand appears they may already be getting their hands on on us weapons at this point. and we also have us official saying they don't know where these weapons they send ukraine, go on and know who ends up, getting them in terms of our ability to track the weapons that are going in. as you know, we don't have any forces on the ground, so that's it's difficult for us to do. i couldn't tell you where the weapons are in ukraine and whether the ukrainians are using them at this point. they're not
9:09 am
telling us every round of ammunition they're firing and who and when. now it's important to note the united states is the top ex, border of weapons in the world, u. s. arms flow across the planet, and there are many instances of us weapons ending up in the hands of problematic individual. when the usa withdrew from afghanistan, recently, we saw the taliban get it hands on some u. s. high grade, military weapons and hardware. and that was in the hands of the taliban. we've also seen in mexico, drug cartels often armed with sophisticated u. s. military grade weaponry. so around the world, us weapons often do end up in the hands of problematic individuals. this is something that many people around the world are seriously concerned about is the usa continues to escalate its anti russian rhetoric. the united states continues to pour weapons into ukraine who might be on the receiving end of some of these deadly weapons. he was congressman chip roy has suggested that as america faces surging
9:10 am
inflation and other problems that aid money would be better spent at home. and i'm wondering when we voted to go to or if anyway, we're going to have a proxy war and we're going to get $40000000000.00 the ukraine, because we wanna look up fancy with our blue and yellow ribbons. feel good about ourselves. maybe we should actually have a debate in this chamber, a debate in his body because the american people expect us to do that when the border of this country is wide open and cartels have controlled it and fennel is boring in. and we have $30.00 trillion dollars, a debt and gas prices are spiking and $1100.00 to fill a tank, a diesel. and we go blank, jack. $40000000000.00. and by the way, i'm looking at my colleagues on this side of the aisle on that same point on the mystery, isn't going to really have a job ahead of them to explain of the rationale behind this, to the american people. particular going into mid term legend in november of this
9:11 am
year, that fully mistake we saw what happened in our lee. we have canisters were nearly $9000000000.00 weaponry i was left on the ground. there we have no tracking mechanism for where these weapons are going out. whose hands it will go inches are not simply the ads off italian of, of the rooms isis in the middle east. north african, a drug cartels they're working for the region will be able to buy on the black market. many of these highly advanced weapon systems that normally say government's and state actors have access to a thing to a gummy of massive concern over the course. not simply this current engagement, but over the course of the next decade. see where these weapons end up. we have real questions as to exactly how, where the, why we're providing this level of assistance. what are the strategic goals and advantages hero? how we just got out of 20 years of war in the united states to american is mere little appetite and sensory to return to active conflict in world this globe. so we're going to be a even pass a participant in the conference room. we'll have to go to an american people's find exactly what you're doing. the bricks group of countries spending more than 40
9:12 am
percent of the was population is expected to welcome the members. as off the china proposed opening the doors off the alliance, china proposes to start the bricks expansion process, explore the criteria and procedures for the expansion and gradually form a consensus. argentina is understood to be the number one candidate to join the alliances. the country has been invited to attend to brick summit next month. the block company includes brazil, russia, india, china, and south africa. the great aims to encourage economic, political, and cultural cooperation between the member states and the other countries in the line say they welcome china's proposal to invite new members. however, the relations between bricks and nato have been less than friendly with china recently condemning west and attempts to isolate russia over the conflict in ukraine. aging is also called on brussels to sit down for talks with moscow, brick, the experts, it says the proposed expansion of the lines means that china and stepping up to
9:13 am
a bigger role in geo politics. the proposal that the chinese foreign minister has put on the table is really to explore as these should be the criteria and procedures for a possible expansion. but it's certainly part of the process of the way in which i think china sees the bricks in a broader universe of partnerships alliance. there's networks that it has been bolding and cultivating over over a number of years. i don't think this is this, this proposal is necessarily linked to what is happening and crying. i think it's, it's more about the way in which china sees itself in, in, in a new sort of global construct. i suspect that the development in europe, and i chose my claim to that, but i can see that as,
9:14 am
as being the overarching reason india has defended this decision to restrict wheat to expose saying its supply should go to those within the region who need the most is accused rich countries of holding food, while poor countries struggle if actuation, much like that, which so, coven vaccines fell to each impoverished stairs areas necessary for all of us to adequately appreciate the importance of equity, affordability, and accessibility. when it comes to what grades we have already seen to our grade cost, how these principles were disregarded. in the case of covered 9 in vaccines, open markets must not become an argument to perpetrate any good iniquity and promote discrimination. india has said they restrictions are necessary to control the rising. domestic price is off, the heat wave affected grain ropes, but the u. s. has slammed the move as an ill advised decision that will disrupt the
9:15 am
international market and potentially push up prices even further. china, on the other hand, has supported india's positions, saying that blaming developing countries like india won't solve the global food crisis. india is the world's 2nd largest. we produce up, but each of the global export market is robin fridge. is contributor in india, p t q thing tells us more about why the we export restrictions were imposed. india imposed a van own delete exports in view of the inflation and inflationary prices, or reach especially because of the overall inflation caused by the code or no by this band to make and the disruption in supply chains. in the last 2 years, the inflation is also an outcome of the heat rate in the country, which india suspects is going to bring down the re to production in the country.
9:16 am
apart from this, we were really then also made it very feel that india was going to keep its commitment to the nations rich have asked for our richer how already been committed for b read greens. in fact, a just last year, india exported 7500000 done. all we did the nation started had committed itself to add in just last one months. india exported 1500000 downs of wheat. this is really more than what india has been generally exploiting. in fact, india is not a huge exposure of wheat, greens. instead it's the european nations and russia and ukraine,
9:17 am
which are the biggest exporters of greens. and yet, india has gifted commitment with all the poor nations in need of lead greens to discuss ideas, move lights, cross live now to gentlest on commentate to javier thing many thanks for joining us on. the program is good to see you. what do you make up a step cindy was taking to protect it, food security to make the most of a justified? yes. really just a 5 because and one of the commander already told that there are some issues on india. do you want to use? will heat in the month of march and after a production where the same time you get a sufficient read and the reason behind it, i'm just to do that for a while just to us of the situation globally as well as a, because we have to look a inflation because unusual prices are going up and
9:18 am
so we watched. but we have a nice at the same time. some of the contacts already have $11.00 export from india and already shipped out some ownership. but we have the capacity to explore and the kind of a statement of mr. mean you, when we are, look, we'll go over a vaccine that when old is restricted rex, you know, and it will go down. but, but the reason why we're not able to access the end. and so that's why we're going to be doing really musically as a single situation. and i was a month and food already mentioned that we were looking for kids to get this is if i want to never even please watch some for security so that we can provide them the
9:19 am
on the get it. so we have one to be available, not a complete, and the same time will be able to read a book and if some situation of a lot of it. and if somebody wants them from the government from the other can be so on government to government. this is begin to make some export based on the plan . so why do you think the west is criticizing india for this? me? why don't you tell me really serious is prioritizing its own interests. i think that's good. this is not right now. let's check because india looking on in class as well. and we are saying that we don't want to be needed the support the requirement, like with some african countries, but at the same time you have to know the systemic manner. so that's why this good decision is not. i think it is not the appropriate thing because i was going to like get a lot, just read up a j not what it was. and i'm, we have
9:20 am
a huge population also to feed a study under 40 group people in this country. so, and these are very important for me, you know, it can be so according to that really, you know, once you go to be and definitely forty's very important to me and he saw them country. so we have to look out in best fast, then we have to think about there's also, and one is coming, but it doesn't matter if you, if you see, i want to talk side of it for months and the government. but if you go to other countries where to stop, so basically for my big one, it's so they're basically taking of the places and then there is a market and you run a course of 3 a we will be able to supply it. that would be reasonable place. i don't want to be part of the sort of the places we, we would either sponsible country with
9:21 am
a drought expected to hit many global regions this year. do you think it's possible that the countries may follow say, within the a t protects that own food security? yes. so basically we have to, she got out what she got it. then we can think about other countries and definitely a lot of these and you want a new one. we have you and sometimes i meant to also on, on a specific last. so that is the point that we have to be very careful and definitely be able to be responsible. watch on citizen as a global community have a one step. it could be taken globally to prevent a food crisis. i think where we have to be
9:22 am
really careful about a today a but i think that the 49000000 people may be affected on this. like if i mean like situation, but definitely the climate change is affecting the watch and i know there's a, can you, what is a disturbance is also one of the factor. but at the same time, we have to see that next next to we are to be ready to ship. we're going to play and i was in the global market and commentator javier thing many thank feel time. we appreciate your thoughts and your insights on the mass of nashville anchor has officially defaulted on his dad's for the 1st time in the country's history. with spiraling inflation rates, rolling power blackouts plus food and medicine shortages, promising thousands of people to rally against the government.
9:23 am
ah ah ah, this is the produce march organized by the into university student federation. the mind being the president to step down and demanded a baldwin to come up with something concrete and for him as an obligation to make an exam. he's that know the burdens of the general public and arrest the man god breeds and the brains behind the chaos that does create a new story lanka. last week. there had been some ships coming there to the shows ups for longer, especially carried fuel diesel petra, at the same time gas,
9:24 am
but that i know dollars in the government fisheries to buy the stocks that are still in the shows office for lanka. c dimension. nice. getting was each and every day. we are still keeping the fingers crossed that something concrete would take place. this is dish on was reported to you from colombo store lanka, on some e stays, have pushed for c, siren ukraine. others have lunch dance against those contacts with russia, with mine how both states have been putting immense pressure on german and french leaders and even suggested prolonging the war. he's all, he contributes at rachel marston, french president, a manner in the home and german chancellor will absolutely are facing pressure from baltic state officials over a perceived lack of appetite for continued conflict with russia over ukraine. is not the 1st time that the baltic countries have tried calling the shots for the you . the representatives in brussels have routinely countered efforts including by the
9:25 am
chief diplomat joseph burrell, to engage with russia after press conference alongside russian foreign minister of survey law in moscow. in february of last year, moran was forced to explain why he called russia's bi weekly, anti pope and vaccine. good news for the whole mankind, and a hope that you would prove it, which of course is still hasn't, by the way. well, also have to justify why you failed to insert himself russell. ready domestic bears, by neglecting to adequately condemn the imprisonment of opposition. figure alexis and l need to the satisfaction of baltic states. and now the baltic states have paras, amberlynn in their sites is don't mean prime minister kaya callas amendment my most recent call to live here. for here this month. i feel that everybody is constantly poly and he doesn't get the message that he is isolated. so if we want to get the message through that, actually you are isolated dot com. there's no point. sounds like advice you gave to

a friend after being dumped by next. not exactly brimming with diplomatic savvy. and in april hole in from his hysterically criticised knuckles diplomatic reach, saying mister micron, how many times have you negotiated with bruton and what have you achieved? have you stop to any of the actions that have taken place? nobody negotiated with hitler which negotiate with hitler was stolen with poll pot . chancellor, all i schultz has found himself in the baltic crossers as well over germany's initial reluctance to flood ukraine weapons alongside its nato allies pressure to which the moon in stock ultimately gave in. in april, weapons efforts, horn risk ending up on the black market. and you find various and non state actors . germany and france represent the economic and military powers of europe. the united states see them as the competition in these areas on the global playing
9:27 am
fields. and constantly undermines them, which is what this ukranian conflict is effectively doing. historically driven ideological ambitions of baltic states ought to have limits in light of real world economic consequences. germany and france have a right to their own foreign policy as sovereign nations. they are well aware that the longer this conflict in ukraine persists and the more economic damage is done to europe's economy, true anti russian sanctions. the greater the chance that it will fall on berlin in paris to clean up the mass. of course, get stuck with the bill. many thanks for joining us here. and i'll say international with the back of a top of down with the latest. ah ah ah
