ah ah braces the size of a truck and burn down military vehicles as of style is to be paid to me of obliteration r t phones exclusive drone footage of the devastated landscape of the motor. you pulled steal club russian on dpr forces gain full control of the area with industry leaders predict turbulence for businesses on thousands of last. johnson you know as a result of a possible sick round of sanction set to be imposed by brussels and russia. also head on the program, wimbledon political decision had been russian on, beller, russian, tennis players, leaves, bronze lambs, reputation, severely, bruised as high profile stars, boy called the event of the quad summit of nations,
12:01 pm
gets under way in tokyo. we look at why the u. s. teams that we've been main beneficiary of the for state organization. with just after mid day in caracas, midnight in shanghai, in 7, in the evening. here in moscow, welcome to the global news update on our ukrainian fighters who recently surrendered the as all the style plant will stump trial for the crimes. they're accused of going back multiple years. that's according to the leader of the done yet republic. the group includes members of the neo nazi as off battalion. the territory of the plant is not fully under the control of joint russian undone, yet forces who are currently carrying out a de mining operation across mario to pull the historic steel factory is deemed beyond repair. but the city and other facilities are to be restored with the help of st. petersburg as the to where it occurred. sister city, you know,
12:02 pm
r t got the chance to exclusively film the sprawling industrial zone from the earth and explore it steps on the surface. you can very clearly see how much damage the russian artillery, the russian air force mortars. how much damage the cost to this place. i mean, look at it. it is utterly devastated. and you can see where the bombs fell. the roof is caved into this building into this absolutely, truly massive warehouse over there to and also you can also get a glimpse into how much the as of neo nazi fighters and the ukranian forces, how much they had in between them and the falling bombs, not just not just concrete, but here, hard steel, all of this kept them really, really safe. and now i'm going to give you one of the most vivid examples as to why
12:03 pm
the as of style fighters could have sheltered in full safety, complete safety. for however long they wanted, this is a crater left by a truly massive bomb likely dropped off a jet. and you can see how much damage it made compared to me. it's massive. it's absolutely colossal. but have a look at the concrete there. this is just the upper layer of all the dungeons that, towering down there under ground. so they, it managed to destroy the concrete plate, the very top one. but there are several more each and single floor each. each single floor there is separated and protected by plates exactly like this. imagine how many bombs have to be dropped in one particular spot in a one concrete spot which is already impossible to get to the as of style neo nazis and regular soldiers. which who are hiding and living on the very lower level,
12:04 pm
the catacombs underneath the as of sal steelworks can be explored endlessly. this maze of tunnels doesn't stop surprising it from one tunnel. you go straight into another than this, this array of well ladders and staircases and you have no idea what right around the corner. this used to be the headquarters of what of the many units that used to be stationed here, that used to shelter here underneath this plant. the still a heavy stanch of ash in the air, because before leaving, they burned this place. they raised it to the ground. not only did they burn the place, but they also had to drop some weapons. and basically they made them useless. like over here you can see rifles. you can see sheen guns. they did their best so that nothing falls in the hands of the dinners, people's republic militia. but right now scouting this place. they have already.
12:05 pm
well, got some trophies. we had to climb about 2 stories up to get to this massive place and get what we're still under the surface. we're still under ground. so you can imagine how deep the tunnels go here and they really could have stayed there. and i mean, even bombs dropped from jets, can't get them here. i mean, look at all the concrete. so it is one of the safest places in the world from the catacombs. we finally see the light of day. we had to get some 5 stories up just to get here to the ground level craters, the size of a truck and burned down military vehicles. as of style is the epitome of utter obliteration. and a metaphor to the fate of every one who was sheltering underneath the places annihilated by the russian jets and artillery of the denotes people's republic. ah,
12:06 pm
okay. another story to bring attention to a friendship player has become the 1st pro to openly boyd count, the prestigious wimbledon tennis tournament. it comes off to the sports. all this grand slam was stripped of its clear ranking points due to its decision to bon russian on bella, russian players from this years event over the conflict in ukraine. our teeth don quarter can tell us more, but a lot of high profile tennis players are very upset with this. with the fact that ranking points are going to be dropped at wimbledon. this year after the former world's number one tennis player naomi soccer heard that heard this news, she decided that perhaps she's going to be out of the tournament altogether. this year. i would feel like the decision is kind of affecting like my mentality going into graphs like 100 percent. sure. if i'm going to go there, it's kind of like, i don't want to see pointless, no pun intended, but like,
12:07 pm
now the reason these ranking points were dropped has to do with wimbledon ban on the russian and bell russian players at the tournament this year. and based on what we heard from osaka, it looks like this could have serious consequences for the sport as a whole. and that's why the men tenants association expressed regret when it said it had to drop these points. the decision by wimbledon to ban russian and bella, lucy and players from competing in the u. k. this summer undermines the principal and the integrity of the a t p ranking system. it is with great regret and reluctance that we see no option but to remove a t p ranking points from wimbledon for 2022. and it looks like that regret is warranted because wimbledon is now because of this decision facing a boycott. top french tennis player lucas actually became the 1st player to outright refuse to participate in this year's tournament. he said that the dropping of the ranking points extended what was originally just an injustice for russian and bella, russian players who were banned, that this extended,
12:08 pm
that in justice to the rest of the players, were still allowed to compete. i was in no way associated with his decision, which i do not agree with. i understand the frustration of the russian players and the injustice of it. but now there is an injustice for $240.00 players instead of 12. it was never unanimous decision that i know we don't even know if there was a vote. in any case, all the players i have spoken to are against it. on top of that, the world current number tennis player, novak joke of, ich said that wimbledon came to the wrong decision. he said that the tournament administration had other options i could pursue, but the side decided not to. we also heard from the u. k. is number one, tennis player cameron, norry, he said that this is going to really discourage top players from participating this year and make it look more like an exhibition that was the all his own words that he used there. so clearly this is upsetting a lot of players, this mixing of politics and sports, we're going to see just to what degree it's going to backfire on tennis as
12:09 pm
a whole. the summit of the so called quad nations, japan, the u. s. s. trillion india is underway in tokyo member states praise. there are relations with each other and reiterated their goals of establishing a, quote, free and open indo pacific. the leaders of the country agreed to work closely on the indo pacific economic framework, especially aimed out countries growing chinese influence in asia. that paper, if you're buying a new economic plan for the region, and it was the boost time through common standards in different economic sectors. so here i spoke to r t worlds, a part who was stuck on the boy to about the moves. the vital ministration is pretty clear that they, they see this initiative as a sort of an alternative to china's belden road initiative. but the big difference is that the americans are only talking about values at primarily geopolitical values. present biden's specifically said that, you know,
12:10 pm
he wanted to unite countries, share our values in order to oppose government that don't share our bellies. but the way difference from the chinese, an initiative is that the chinese, usually a very practical when it comes to benefits, they come with credits, they come with real resources. they do projects that actually benefit people's life . and whether or not it benefits china, your political agenda, of course it dives, but it also offers something to people on the ground. there is some element of the win win. whereas what this new group thing that americans are suggesting is going to bring is an open question. it's like, you know, it's, it's all very abstract at this point. india pm moody, standing up as he has done for quite some time, saying we're not taking sides. it's indian interest 1st in terms of mutually beneficial cooperation. therefore, between the u. s. and these countries,
12:11 pm
it's not going to, you know, combat against the test of time. is it going to last up because that's a big divide at the moment. it depends on how the americans will proceed. and the problem with the american approach is that they always put that interest 1st and never consider the interest, so not only their enemies, but even that, that allies and the as abstract as these frameworks tend to be. again, divide in the ministration stress and that it needs to bring huge benefits to the american families, to them medically, businesses, and many observers in the region for the fact that it is primarily designed to make the american goods in the region more competitive because it's hard for the american producers to get into the asian market because of the high value of the your solar. but again, this agreement doesn't offer anything concrete to those countries that doesn't offer any privileged access market. it's not a free trade agreement. well, we spoke with career indian diplomat,
12:12 pm
so say that job biden's presence at the summit shows the region remains a priority for the u. s, but they had about new delhi won't impose sanctions pushed by washington against any country. i think that the president biden is keen to demonstrate that the united states focus on the indoor pacific has not diminished as a result of preoccupations about what is happening in europe. and i think that is an important factor because he has also come up with the initiative of the in the pacific economy. crim to which india and other countries, including many of the young countries have joined. so i think this is to signal that the pacific remains very important aspect of us policy and priorities and has never in this is the same from us,
12:13 pm
but the left us sanctioned us for years and years and years on very critical issues for the past and i mean, joining in anything against russia. our policy is very clear that india will abide by any sanction the general rule by the united nations security. so if at any stage against any country, sanctions in bows with the improvement of the united nations, india will not be much shorter than in beijing. her said its relationship with the us would have irredeemable consequences should do. biden's recent remarks about washington intervening, militarily of china attacked the island of taiwan. come to reality. you didn't want
12:14 pm
to get involved in the ukraine conflict militarily. for obvious reasons. are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan if it comes to that? yes, you are, that's a commitment. we made the white high. so whoever claim those comments do, not i policy schiff that said joe biden, simply make clear the u. s. commitment to provide type with military assistance for self defense under the taiwan relations act. washington nodded. it's said by it's so called one china policy under which only one chinese government has recognized beijing, but which allows for official relations with ty pay, including the sale of weapons. where the explanation wasn't enough for china, which sold the statement as a breach of existing agreements. maybe maybe the u. s. has violated its commitment on the taiwan question, hollowed out that one china principal, and both openly and secretly incited and supported taiwan independence and
12:15 pm
separatist activities root carries on down the wrong path. it will not only cause redeemable consequences or the china us relationship, but also eventually incur unbearable costs to the us. i'm sure that that was not the 1st time joe biden has made such offhand remarks on taiwan during his presidency. and also not the only topic he's appeared confused over. he's mixed up countries names, put his vice president in his own post, mid, ambiguous statements about the russian presidents with his age, then forced to explain his speeches for damage limitation and his popularity is taking a dip in the poles to the me . me asian for example, s lucia kin believes that tiny one question like many others is wall not causes changes and contradictions in the u. s. position bigger. another space is always
12:16 pm
trying to contract or explain different ways to about the one china policy in america, official always try to contradict or it's a problem miss. and also try to miss your interpretation of the word, turn the policy and try and us a government has already announced that again. and the doctor who are kind of policy, he's them the main stone or the base stone that all countries are ready to have people, american religion, that we're trying to move. relations we're trying to, we're trying to policy can not be shaped, cannot be shrunk, nor thrive. the conflict in ukraine, kiev has repeatedly accused russia of committing atrocities. but the spider often being unable to verify the claims western media outlets have been all too willing
12:17 pm
to run the stories. here's our senior corresponded morocco, steve, ukraine, without a doubt, has become a public relations superpower at designs. fashioned spreads narratives, information and disinformation in such volume. and with such reach that it is simply astounding than less than governments and media which enabled us have become willing megaphones for this propaganda. machine was shameless as it is. the dead boy is among dozens of alleged child rape victims, which include 210 year old boys triplets, age 9, a 2 year old girl raped by 2 russian soldiers and a 9 month old baby who was penetrated with a candlestick in front of its mother. according to ukraine's commissioner for human rights and don's pass journalists would ask questions like, did this really happen or is this as it appears? walpole baganda on steroids that some times past these days,
12:18 pm
whatever you cry and says, you just reprint with an addendum, we can't check, verify, or confirm. any of ukraine's claims some way near the end. like the time that you can claim that russian troops booby trapped childrens beds all like the claims that a ukrainian grandma down the russian drone with a jar of pickles with tomatoes, which made it to the front pages of once. reputable media outlets. the thing is with propaganda, as unhinged and unquestioned as these while it card last. eventually people get tired of being treated like idiots and journalists to look, i respect those who take ukraine side in this war. they have a valid point of view which i happen not to share, but what i object to is the holy one sided nature of public opinion. here it is so bad that it is a positive disadvantage to know anything about the subject. unlike russia much as
12:19 pm
required to check and to proven to verify, thrice and using that, it says the brilliance of ukraine's propaganda machine is that it is shameless. it knows that whatever it says will get reprinted, it knows that it can get away with saying the most unlikely. and outlandish things . as irony here, ukraine lies to the west, which is only fair because the west lied to ukraine. in 2021, we kept reiterating that ukraine was going to join. we kept saying that so our diplomats are lying. yes or so? yes, that's the real world guys. i can agree on your own when say our diplomats along all the time, yet the russians should trust them. when they are for assurances, we could only wonder what we will be in this mess. would this conflicts even have started if they hadn't lied, hadn't lied to russia about not expanding nato,
12:20 pm
hadn't lied to ukraine promising it membership. but they did. and somehow they must now make it all rushes false. the media in the us. and generally speaking, the propaganda of the department of state is maybe the only thing more powerful than the weapon. the pentagon themselves have access to. we understand that in this country, the press is entirely owned by a small group of very wealthy individuals. and those people have connections to weapons firms, to the gas and oil industry, and all the people who really stand to gain from a longer and more intense war. and ukraine. on a grip of dutch journalists and civil rights groups have joined forces to take the use decision to r t and sputnik to the european court. while they don't endorse either outlets
12:21 pm
content, the coalition say such censorship is on democratic. we are not fans of our g and splitting it, but if government leaders can independently prohibit information, it affects the democratic constitutional state as a whole. we do not think it is up to europe and government leaders to determine what can and cannot be found on the internet. some context to those remarks. the european union barred r t and sputnik and early march, citing the conflict in ukraine being that the bond would remain in effect until russia stops conducting what they call this information against the you. as a result, all r t and sputnik broadcasts, and even there comes on some social media platforms are inaccessible within the block. well escal live now to come work, i'll mafia and find her of geopolitical media, project seriana analysis for his take, welcome to the program. do you think this legal challenge will be successful?
12:22 pm
thank you very much for having me. actually, it is very hard to tell whether this challenge would be successful or not the legal challenge, right? because the decision to ban r t and split think and other russian outlets came from the united states in order to block or control the cloth information into european continent. also in the united states and in canada. because the pins and americans are finding a hard time nowadays to convince the people to abandon their welfare, their social welfare, for the sake of the, by the ministration and the military industrial complex in the united states. when we see that you're putting a concert in your crane, if they live there, people listen to both sides of the story in increasing number of people who realize that this is not the black and white situation there. because when we listen and watch the mainstream outlets in germany in france, in the united states, we realize that it's a childish way, ask portraying things in your brain, right?
12:23 pm
and they're trying to portray this conflict in a black and white situation. and when the people realize that there is on other side of the story, increasing number of people will understand the rational side of the story, which has also legitimate concerns regarding the expansion of nato to the east. and the quote that the united states is spreading to the color evolutions in eastern europe. so the question is, not only about russia today, for example, why would you choose, for example, believe the documentary, oliver's son, who is a hollywood producer. and they did it at his book commentary. you're korean on 5 unusual because if the people watch that and by doing millions of people watch that document and they will realize that there was a could, it happened in 2014 and the united states installed a fascist government and the russian, speaking people in ukraine and also attacked the dumbass agent and they killed over 13000 people. so the russians would be seen as being defending the interests of the
12:24 pm
national speaking people in your grand, instead of being on an offensive mission on your credit. right. all these cherry that's happened in the past few weeks in the u and in the united states is basically to console the flop, inflammation. and they started this, especially after the pandemic of cardona and they use the fear of the people in order to suspend a lot of independent accounts, you know, to suppress independent voices. and now what we are seeing is, and not only against today, but also against other independent voices. and this is happening to a collusion between the governments or the elite in the european union. and in the united states. we also social media giants in order to suspend the consumer reporting on the ukraine where for example, and tens of very important a cause, been suspended in the past weeks on, which are, for example, what precedent did the e decision to bon r, t and sputnik said kevorkian and did it,
12:25 pm
did it actually expose that the amount of control that european leaders have over what information their citizens have access to? actually it's quite dangerous precedent and it goes against the so called liberal values that these political leads preaching to the board. and they said they want to spread the values to the entire work and what they have done into your opinion, and it goes against their phone preachings, right? and the political leave, i mean, here in, in, in, in, in europe and in the united states, they have, they have been very confident in the past few decades, or in the past 2 decades, at least because the people are information that they are able to control the narrative because they were not independent voices, and non russian voices, and non chinese voices are non indian voices coming from the strike media outlets. so be, so promoting fee for the flow of information was convenient for them. but now,
12:26 pm
since there is russia today, we have whitney, we have indian growing very strong indian channels by the way. they are challenging the american imperialism. it's quite clear that they are unable to control the flow of information. they're unable to control the narrative. therefore, increasing number of people in the u. s. in the united states are becoming on to work. and when we say the word, they are objecting, the american expansion is worse in the entire what? because the most important thing here, there are lots of people in the united states, they don't know that the united states is an empire. and when they realized, and they know that the united states is now in what is doing in somalia, what is the american forces are doing in syria? what is the american forces still doing in iraq? they're all illegal under the national laws of this conference, right? so what is today is doing is now blowing the balloon of flies of the united states, and it is becoming naked in front of its people. if you can convince your people
12:27 pm
and sell a war to your people, why would your people agree and accept to abandon their well care and pay more taxes? and now what we see in the united states is a big inflation. and also in, in germany where i live, we are paying increasing like it's, it's becoming 1020 percent increase bills in and the salaries are the same. but how long can these leads continue despite this is this is the real question, because i don't think that people would tolerate another year or 2 of such a economic hardship when they were used to live in a really comfortable economic situation. and social worker could work thanks very much for your time on your thoughts today we've been speaking to, to work on mafia and funder of the duplicate media project, syria analysis. thousands of jobs last and major jobs for european factories. now is the worry of industry leaders and the precious
12:28 pm
stone and car production business. all they say with little to no consequences for russian says you leaders prepare a 6th round of sanctions on russia targeting fossil fuels. ortiz syrup correspond charlotte dubin ski picks up the story. what is the salt, the surgeon how sold energy prices was bad enough? and then to add on to that the increase in basic goods. then you may want to walk away from your screen right now because the warnings coming from certain industries about the feature of the european economy. if the block continues with its sanctions against russia is pretty devastating. this will start off with, with the car industries with manufacturers such as b, m, w, and also volkswagen. suggesting that further sanctions could see the entire industry grind to a halt or industry accounts for around 37 percent of german natural gas consumption
12:29 pm
. not just b. m w, but the entire sector would come to a standstill. i think we should do the utmost to really stop this war and get back to negotiations and get back to trying to open up the world again. well, it could be time to slap up a call before those production holes, but it's not just that warning from the current stream. we're also hearing a pretty similar warning coming from the diamond industry. now at the moment, there are new sanctions against russian diamonds being imported, but sanctions that have been imposed by the u. s. a set to cause a problem already in the supply worldwide. so much so that the heart of the diamond industry here in europe in antwerp in belgium, is suggesting that they could be wide by bankruptcy and major job losses. and all experts say, for new reason, by banning russian stones, we would only be cutting our own flesh. it would cost $10000.00 jobs in one fell swoop, and it won't hurt the russians. they would just fly their stones to do by that
12:30 pm
despite is pussy in quite a warning. so different industries, it seems as the e wants to do a full steam ahead with further sanctions. it already saying look, set to approve a sick set of sanctions. hopefully in the next few days, ursula bowl delay and the commission president saying that putin has lost his best client in europe. if we would completely cut immediately as of today of the oil, he might be able to take the oil that he does not sell to the european union to the world market, where the prices will increase and sell it for more. now throughout the war and ukraine, as the ear has been announcing new sanction package, often new sanction package. it is said one thing pretty consistently that the packages of sanctions must harm the russian economy more than they calm the economies. hey.
