the broadcasting live direct from our studios in moscow. this is art international and sean thomas certainly glad to have you with us. now we start with the latest developments in the war in the ukraine, in the city of don. yes, 5 people, including 2 children, have been reported killed and 16 injured in intense showing, said to be by ukrainian forces. local authorities have said that 3 schools in the city, the capital of the done yet republic were targeted in attacks by ukraine's military cities mer has said that the ukrainian bombardment was carried out with u. s. heavy weaponry supplies to give local officials say that it has been the worst shilling of done yet in 8 years since the 2014, when the conflict initially broke out elsewhere in southeastern ukraine. the city of melissa, both currently under russian control, has been rocked by an explosion that local authorities are considering a terrorist attack ukrainian fighters to human carry and volunteers were wounded in
10:02 pm
that blast in the city center. while they were attempting to deliver a to, to residence. now the ukranian situation was a focus of recent telephone conversation between russia. president putin and his turkish counterpart at one on cra, has said that it is ready to mediate for a peaceful solution to the conflict, to stamp out possible further repercussions for the region at large. now onto our breaking news on our, to international after prolonged hesitations and internal opposition. the e. u has announced a tentative agreement for a 6th round of sanctions against russia. it is to include an embargo on imports of russian oil, except by pipeline. there is a temporary exception for the oil that comes through the pipeline to, to, to the decision is taken to night. you start edition 400. so this isn't you know,
10:03 pm
to take into account the situation of the lent looked countries and small. then hunter is there is in place in the pipeline that where we can increase the prime minister explained to us tonight, the capacity so that it will over time deliver other oil than the russian oil and be able to deliver that to hungary. hungary was the main opponent of the sanctions package, long blocking a potential deal because it is so highly dependent on russian oil imports being supplied by pipeline the head of the commission. ursula, the underlying, has pledged to cut 90 percent of oil imports from russia to the block by the end of this year. that is despite her recently saying that a complete ban on russian oil supplies would actually help moscow because it would drive up the price. if we would completely cut immediately as of today,
10:04 pm
off the oil, he might be able to take the oil that he does not sell to the european union to the world's market, where the prices will increase and sell it for more. the sanctions are also to include cutting off rushes, largest bank spear bunk from the international payment system. swift as well as bearing several russian broadcasters from providing their content to your viewers. some russian individuals that the you have said were liable for alleged war crimes in ukraine are also to be sanctioned, independent political analyst also under bruno believes the sanctions will actually bite back against the block. the solution that they've tentatively reached just a few hours ago that is to buckle see lane shipment is also going to affect a number of e u. countries who have interest in shipping. that oil definitely
10:05 pm
fractures at various points. and i don't. and them, which contrib, combined with the physical need for pipeline oil. to create a situation of a tense situation within the e u itself. in other words, these sanctions that the use is conjuring up are only going to hurt you in the and this is truly shooting on the wrong feet. for lack of a better metaphor, nato's deputy secretary general has said the alliance could no longer adhere to commitments against stationing forces in eastern europe. they took decisions, they made obligations. they are not to be aggressive with neighbors, which they are doing. and to have regular consultations with nato, which they are not doing. so i think that in fact is found, the act is basically not functioning because of russia. now we have no restrictions
10:06 pm
to have robust posture in the eastern flank and to ensure that every square inch of nato's territory is protected by article 5 and our allies. russia has long considered nato expansion, a direct threat to its national security despite a promise by the west. decades ago that the military lines would not expand one inch eastward. 14 countries have joined nato since the disillusion of the soviet union in the early 1990 s. a former italian general has urged the you to not further provoke russia over the ukraine conflict and instead seek an improvement in relations with moscow. if we are to succeed in negotiating an agreement with russia on ukraine's war, we must avoid provocations and unnecessary things, such as nato enlargement, which risks further destabilizing the region. instead of strengthening security. nato has its share of responsibility for the war between russia and ukraine. we heard from former us marine corps intelligence officer, scott ritter, who thinks that nato not russia is incomplete, disregard for fundamental agreements to preserve stability in europe by not
10:07 pm
expanding eastward. deputy secretary general is forgotten that it was nato's continuous eastern expansion up to the borders of russia. that helped create the conditions for the current conflict. it was nato that has been operating in total disregard of the, of the founding act, not russia. secretary general has forgotten statements made by both but his boss sector, general non stolen bird, and other ministers of defense secretaries of defense of nato, which appeared to current conflict between ukraine and russia as an opportunity for nato to inflict a strategic defeat on russia. the deputy secretary general's look in the mirror and throwing accusations that russia, which are solely derived from nato's own actions. european economy is going through somewhat of a shock right now, and it doesn't look like that. sharks can in any time soon. all nato has is
10:08 pm
basically some fancy charts and arrows and lines and words. they don't have reality . reality is when they actually build up these forces and then deploy them into bases the cost, money forces, cost money, the equipment cost money, the basis cost money. who's going to pay for this? they don't as the u. s. and it's allies pump more money into ukraine kids. national banks say that it has already received more than 5 and a half $1000000000.00 in foreign aid. now, washington and brussels have so far failed to explain how exactly they're going to follow the money. despite the oversight concerns, the u. s. recently approved a massive $40000000000.00 of military and humanitarian assistance for ukraine, bringing its total to $53000000000.00 since the start of the war 3 months ago. it is one of washington's biggest foreign aid expenditures in recent history. but you,
10:09 pm
for it's part, has already sent $1500000000.00 euros of military, so flies and recently allocated another $500000000.00 euros for additional provisions. but the other day that you use policy force issued a stern warning that weapons the block has been supplied to kia, may end up in the hands of criminals, and lead to further instability in europe. meanwhile, the washington post has published an article about a foreign volunteer who has recently returned from ukraine, saying his military unit was provided with american weapons that didn't actually work dakota cohort. the foreign volunteers was attached to ukraine in military units and brought by yellow school bus to keith from which they was sent north west into a number at old town outside the capital. it was early march, they were issued, entertained weapons, and devil in this house. but no batteries for the launch unit, non functional or not the flow of american weapons to ukraine has already raked in
10:10 pm
some hefty profits for the u. s. military industrial complex with the network of ratio technologies rising by almost $15000000000.00 since the start of the year, while lockheed martin has soared by more than $25000000000.00 during the same period. we got a reaction from independent investigative journalist, vanessa billy, who questioned where the better quality weapons provided by the west will eventually end up. the capability of the ukrainian forces is not that which they would like you to believe these mercenaries, claiming that they weapons they were given, were faulty. we're not working, then you have to ask where the best quality weapons have ended up. i ended up in the hands of only or the, the as of the ultra nationalist brigades, or have they effectively gone through ukraine into other countries, into the hands of the u. s. proxies. number of people in the west are
10:11 pm
starting to question an investment into a war that really they call when there is no way to us or do you cry or any country any night. remember, they can give assurances, but these are huge. financial packages are going to be followed through that full accountability is going to be provided to the public for those countries that are effectively providing this money. the ukranian military is notorious as of the italian has attempted to distance itself from its neo nazi wolf's uncle, emblem and the western media claimed that the symbol was exploited by russia to justify its military operation. a new unit as a hurricane was changed their patches to a more traditional trident symbol used by the ukrainian state. at the unveiling of a new special forces unit in cargo patches handed to soldiers did not feature the
10:12 pm
wolf's angel. a medieval german symbol that was adopted by the nazis in which has been used by the battalions in 2014. instead, they featured a golden trident. the ukrainian national symbol warned by other regiments, yet recent photos of the new as of a 100 of commanders show that they have continued to wear patches with nazi symbols on their uniforms. here we can see the so called totten cops or death head emblem used by hitler's as forces and since adopted by neo nazi and white supremacist groups. i choose from one cause of comments now on what is behind this attempt to repaint the as of battalions image in the eyes of the west. if i was to ask anyone whether they've heard of the adult battalion, he will probably ring a bell. those in the know would surely also note that said, most members of this neo nazi affiliated group recently surrendered through russian lead forces in the don't bus city of murray will. however,
10:13 pm
that event did not. ashley more can the and of us off as a reincarnation of the tories battalion has already been announced in the ukrainian city of hud. gov. we are forming new units based on the legendary is av battalions, principles in ideologies. every day, there are more soldiers and they become more professional to day, i have the honor to present promotions, to soldiers of the new unit as of carcass, which is ready to take revenge for fallen ukrainian cities. so the same principles and ideological foundations, the same principles for which the battalion was accused of committing a war crimes rate torture and losing. according to a 2016 united nations report, you might think that says something could have changed since then until you look at some of the recent images of as old members when they surrendered in murray will. one glance at their tattoos makes the neo nazi dedication of these soldiers clear
10:14 pm
as they even the united states, a country which is now plumping ukraine with money and weapons. as previously stated that the as ult battalion poses a threat to americans themselves, dissolved battalion as a well known ultra nationalist militia organization in ukraine that openly welcomes neo nazis into its ranks. the group is so well known, in fact, that the 115th congress of the united states stated in its 2018 omnibus spending bill that none of the funds made available by this act may be used to provide arms, training, or other assistance to these av battalion the u. n. has chronicled human rights abuses and incidents of torture in this groups relatively short history. despite these facts, as of has been recruiting radicalize in and training american citizens for years, according to the f b i. but so let's take a closer look at as of battalion commander, sir, gave elliptical, and constantine damage of political has been fighting in the boss since 2014,
10:15 pm
in just a few months earlier. he was an active member of the forces that, than least an armed qu, in capital. key of, he was also the leader of a far right group that was allegedly involved in the tragedy at the house of trade unions in odessa, where dozens of auntie, my dad activists were birds, alive. in 2021 village girl was sent to prison in ukraine for racketeering extortion and kidnapping his so called brother in arms. konstantin, image of law before village goes speedy, released from jail, and he was set free. as soon as russia special military operation began, why, apparently simply because he hates russians, you only use a quick look him to come and was going, you know, all of the released prisoners are ardent opponents of the russian world concept and have certain combat experience. all risks and control mechanisms are assessed individually for each of them. according to russia's investigative committee
10:16 pm
village, go an image of, along with other members of the us, of battalion committed war crimes. when they beat up and shot, a russian military prisoners in the legs, political himself doesn't even deny this atrocity. not so little did in a posted interval, a lawyer. there were cases when soldiers of our unit shot russian military prisoners in the legs. they had surrendered, their hands were tied and our soldiers shot them. i don't think that was right. so what to expect from this uniformed assault article from national his battalion, we already know from its leader that it was created with the same ideological foundation as its predecessor leaving observe is guessing how many war war crimes could be committed under the neo nazi symbols of as of forces as more than 6000000 people have fled ukraine, since the conflict corrupted some hosting countries have been struggling to cope with the influx of refugees or to show davinsky reports. they were welcomed with
10:17 pm
open arms by several e. u nations, millions of ukrainian refugees flowed into the block to be hosted by their neighbors. but as the war drags on are they overstaying their welcome in the austrian capital locals have been shocked by an incident, allegedly involving several ukrainian men. asher. this video shows the men who were driving cars with ukrainian number plates kicking and punching a taxi driver and others. one man was seen been left on the ground. that rule allegedly broke out over how the cars had been parked. an investigation is underway, but the leader of one austrian political party has already said ukrainians should be kicked out instead of fighting for their country. ukrainian men are beaten up. taxi drivers in front of luxury hotels in vienna get out of our country. poland has
10:18 pm
taken in the lion's share of ukrainian refugee some 3500000 have set up camp there . however, social media videos have revealed that some polls a clearly fed up with their guests with advantage of cynical energy. and could you tease weird archie, which on got you alluded bonanza you look like you submitted to submit our we believe a little the reason of this is only on you. okay. yeah. i'll do everything as little. let's open the movies. you on the result of jason, we, jamie, across germany, the deemed special treatment. the ukrainians have been receiving has also become too much for some blood i. and for the governments, the reality of the huge responsibility that they have taken on is gradually becoming clear. more so which rolled out the red carpet giving ukrainians the right to live, work and collect social security benefits, is now having to issue an emergency debt to deal with the crisis. it's also not
10:19 pm
having to cut back on some freebies, including free travel for ukraine in adults. the czech republic is urging ukrainians to seek out work or be at risk of losing benefits while bulgaria is generous offer of putting ukrainians up in tourists. hot spots has also been withdrawn, ukrainians are said to have complained about being moved and also about the new accommodation facilities. you countries are also asking brussels for more financial help. lithuania wants to know where the money is. in lithuania ukrainians, and are about 2 percent of the population in estonia is about 2.5 percent and in poland about from 6 to 7 percent. so the numbers for supports in them are quite big . we're asking for some additional funds which would be helpful in this situation. i do not ask for flexibility. i asked for additional funding and mosque. and if i
10:20 pm
could maybe think about the instrument there was previously used in migration crisis and migrants for coming from take it to greece and european union countries decided to put up additional funds and give them money to support migrants. and it seems in you members aren't alone in their struggle. as in the u. k. to the burden of hosting ukrainians, coupled with the spiraling cost of food and energy, is hitting hard. some post family see that they are now having to seek out assistance from food banks just to survive. there is still a huge amount of support in the e. u for those from ukraine. but as countries faced their own struggles, perhaps the welcome is drawing up. former european parliament member godfrey bloom says open door immigration policies have caused problems for countries that initially had good intentions. a conversation between locals and refugees are getting worse in the west for a number of reasons. first of all,
10:21 pm
we have been swamped by a number of bogus refugees who are economic immigrants. so wealthy benefits, some freebies and free handouts. government handouts are extremely generous. and of course, in the welfare society, immigrants coming in means there's less of the case to go round for locals, and they're being specific problems. for example, in sweden, with an almost so can do immigration policy. there have been sorry to say very serious crime problems involved with that. there is only a certain amount of hospitality that you can give to refugees. you know, its limited resources are finite. i'm when governments throw the doors open, you get you get problems with the locals. and when people are realizing the cost of this in all sorts of different ways, i think the resentment will grow, not necessarily against ukrainian refugees,
10:22 pm
but their own government maneuver them into this crazy position. pakistan's prime minister has claimed that he is ready to sell, quote, the clothes off his back to buy food for people in need. as the south asian country struggles with surging prices for wheat flour, i repeat my words. i will sell my clothes and give people the cheapest wheat flour . i solemnly declare to you that i would give my life to put this country on the past to prosperity and development. violent protest rock party on last week in support of the recently alfred prime minister iran con. the unrest has only intensified following the government's decision to increase fuel prices in a bid to unlock funding from the international monetary fund. khan and his supporters wants new elections after the national parliament appointed his successor without a popular vote. con says the u. s. orchestrated a coup against him. a claim washington has denied shahida. these are robbed author
10:23 pm
and a dean at the institute of business management in packets. i'm think that the new prime minister is trying to show that he's concerned about the welfare of the people the i think the prime minister thing to the galleries. he's trying to show that he feel strongly about the people's ready for it and that, you know, he's the one who has increased the prices of truth. and now he's trying to give the people that he is very, very concerned about their rhetoric. and he's prepared to part with his personal belongings. just to make that a good, i can get a lot of nonsense. i don't see why i missed one in teaching the prices which have such an impact on the common people. i was interesting that he has to see the price of the good. i don't think we said he has to go to the i miss because you see that much better than it is available. that did not seem to fit in by the way.
10:24 pm
and you know, just to leave venza douglas of pockets on the appoint the minister or the finance minister, especially the economic of it can all make managers. i've heard the chief of staff and all of the walking dead bank dominance. the benco parties. they're all appointed from washington. i think that we need a break, and we need to bring in people who are really on this. and who are the patriarchy, and who would like to develop? and, you know, close relationships with the situation and with the people's republic of china. view ends. human rights chief has called for deeper cooperation with china, following a 6 day visit to the country. michelle especially urged beijing to address the concerns of the weaker community and other minorities in the country while also
10:25 pm
calling for further collaboration and interaction between the us and china. given the many intersecting global crises, facing the world today, including climate change threats to peace and security and instability in the global economic system, as well as the impact of the cove at 1900 pandemic. china has a very important role to play as a key contributor in multilateral and regional for we agreed to establish regular engagement between the un human rights office and the government of china. including through an annual senior strategic meeting for discussion of issues of respective interest at national regional or global levels. however, the officials call for cooperation with china has been slammed in the western media where some are even questioning the very credibility of the un human rights office . the director of human rights watch in china is among those critics. for her to fail to explicitly criticize the chinese government given the abundance of evidence of some of those serious human rights crimes under international law was an enormous failure. and, you know,
10:26 pm
really damages her and the offices credibility and frankly enables the chinese government to continue thinking it can commit great human rights crimes and get away with the director of the peace and future research foundation says the un officials, rhetoric on china has fallen under criticism for failing to support western stances . this is part of a cold war agenda against and therefore she does it differently. he does it as a professional un office. and that is of course, worrying for them as it shows that you can have dialogue with china. no criticism is that her way of doing things diplomatically need to do. and she succeeding in creating dialogue that will be future meetings. he has managed to also say some positive things week. a balanced person should do about what china has also done for human rights, such as, you know, i don't know,
