2:10 pm
are guar. i will seek a broader, grander bargain and be able to sit down with the full leadership of each nato members state and be able to discuss it there. because these concerns are broader than just finland in sweden. i haven't seen pragmatism from the sweetest side and the circus president said that i must have compromises. there is no use for the swedish leadership to come to turkey. anyway, he said that before when the deputy foreign minister of sweden wanted become and said, there is no need to come to the country. so the circus presidents holding very firm in this position, up the same time, both finland and sweden face some opposition of home to their bid to join the military alliance in sweden. second largest city guttenberg crowds came out to demonstrate against nato membership to crying. what they say is the country being dragged into nature wars. that's the government's and both north nations refused to put the issue up for a referendum. yeah, and infinity and support is also not universal terms of the association of independent journalist, you call it recently burdened the nato flood in the center of helsinki. we spoke to

2:12 pm
been almost universally welcomed by existing native states. but there is opposition, as we just heard from turkey and croatia, also appearing as a potential obstacle. you have chrome and again, is angered that finnish people are being allowed to say and one of the country's biggest decisions for decades. they was on off a dallas off. we live in finland that an unprecedented time debates and feminine than in the media. now completely under the control of nato, the finished media is completely one sided about nato. but in fact, the more serious problem in finland, his social networks. where if you say something against nato, you will immediately be called an agent of a foreign government. that is, in this case, a russian agent. people are intimidates, that work even found and yelled us in social networks and not allowed to speak out against nato, or simply express their own opinions. my generation is never witness something like this. when people are being completely gagged and this is just sad, in my opinion,
2:13 pm
this is absolutely killing the conversation on social networks, but by burning the nato flag, i wanted to show that finland still dares to express its own opinion, even if they are trying to silence it's in every possible way. dumbing revelations about hillary clinton's presidential campaign or emerging after her former campaign manager, testified in federal court. he stated that clinton herself orchestrated the plan over alleged links between donald trump and a russian bank in 2016. the story has not escaped the attention of entrepreneur and the world's richest man milan musk who tweeted about the alleged boats clinton oaks that most people still don't know that a clinton campaign lawyer using campaign funds created an elaborate hoax about trump and russia. makes you wonder what else is fake. hillary clinton, former campaign manager, is now confirming that she was at the center of russia gate all along robbing the
2:14 pm
testified in federal court that during clinton 2016 campaign, she agreed to a plan to leak a story to the press, claiming that donald trump has secret ties to russia, i discussed it with hillary as well. i don't remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was pe, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter. she agreed with the decision. this testimony was made in the trial of michael sussman, a former clinton campaign lawyer who has been charged with lying to the f. b. i. so far, prosecutors have presented evidence that clinton team didn't just go to the media. but that member such as sussman, actually worked with cyber researchers at the firm fusion gps to make it look like they had evidence to back up their claims. and they then leave that information to the f b i. now, former president trump has responded to the latest revelations, and he said that this gamble has had a lasting impact. this is one of the greatest political scandals in history. for 3
2:15 pm
years. i had to fight her off and fight those crooked people off. and you'll never get your reputation fully back. where do i get my reputation back? and it's not just trans reputation because also the reputation of the f, b i the d o j and every single man, stream media outlets, their ram with the russian gate story. as they proved to the public that they didn't need to take the time to find out if the information was accurate before they presented it as fact. now as for hillary clinton herself remains to be seen whether or not she will actually take the stand at this time around. however, the focus for now remains on her team. will journalism color miss bradley blankenship believes that the revelations about hillary clinton's campaign tactics will impact the democrats who are currently going through the turbulence in the port. i think it's pretty clear that there was 2 main motivations for hillary clinton and her team doing this. the 1st one was the dealer to fall out from the
2:16 pm
wiki li scandal about her campaign and the very obvious conspiracy against the bernie sanders campaign. and the 2nd thing was to influence the foreign policy, the trump administration, to make it so that way. trump's foreign policy, which was supposed to be more restrained, couldn't be so, so that, you know, if he were more relaxed with russia, are willing to be diplomatic with russia that he would be considered, you know, some kind of mentoring candidate. i think that it will impact the reputation. you know, there is a very important mid term election coming up. and joe biden knows that the democrats are slated to get absolutely destroyed in selection, potentially both houses of congress. and that will essentially destroys presidency and usher in trump again. i think that, you know, people calling the blowing the west on this is going to really upset that election and ultimately democratic politics general. now, despite pressure from the west, saudi arabia is aiming for a new opec plus deal with russia's participation. the statement was made by the
2:17 pm

2:18 pm

2:19 pm
empower us, do p s a working. if you are russia high, do you think the u. s. lead pressured to isolate russia is going to impact on the r a world. could the tactic actually serve to bring the countries of the region closer together to me, the experience, that's my personal view. the experience of the united states is not a good experience from that. and they have some at the, she ation of what russia has done, particularly in here. and so we are doing a national regime there, i guess that they have some grievances against the united states. and of course, that makes them stop. and at the same time,
2:20 pm
take it by take you what's happening in your crashes and what size they should date. they can see that the world of them is a ruling from a you don't need for that system. enjoy, right, let's just them, i'm that the okay. and the conflict is but an aspect of it. that's right. sounds good. yeah. and many other gulf states are looking for well, good and bad. but if you can't move, they can't then distance eat distances from birth so far, which is china and russia as well as united states. yeah, as you've been going through, washington has already tried to apply pressure on saudi arabia and indeed other
2:21 pm
opec plus members to abandon their cooperation with rochelle, increased oil production, which has failed. what do you think is the main reason that these the months have not had the desired effect? well, you and i know that i blush, ames to cube the amount of kids balanced in o. b less if you vision or monica. despite the blended, he can upheavals around us, the market is still balance and they have very limited sphere to production capacity. so room to pin that capacity, tumors room. and if the amount of can becomes imbalance, that's why they haven't been in this funding to the bargain, had the ministrations,
2:22 pm
allow them to arrange for election. we're your european martin asked them to do the scene, was that the market has to be kid. that hands and they all ensure realize that it has to keep it to take decisions without extern for pressure on it. i was always very interesting analysis. plenty to chew on international oil and energy expert. dr. mom, do sell me. thank you. thank you. while rushing gas supply or gas problem has completely suspended energy supply to finland after the country refused to pay for energy and rubles, as requested by moscow. the russian gas giant issued a statement saying that it has not received payment from finished company for april supplies. since the beginning of the european countries have to pay in rubles for
