ah ah, this ours headline story, ukraine fires, it's human rights commissioner and hard for spreading on verified information about a legit russian war. crimes or statement had been widely picked up by western media outlets. the ukrainian mp say's dea count guarantee new rockets it's receiving from the u. s. won't end up flying in to russian territory the slide washington claiming it does commitments from ukraine against that happening. a british citizen face is extradition to the us after allegedly violating american functions on north korea. he shared his fears with our t about the global impact of suction. and i think it raises some very,
12:01 pm
very warring concerns to, to the international community as to which those we should, what shouldn't a man, china islam, the u. s. for it's quote, deep rooted had gemini, can mindset america once again to cries, beijing's growing influence in the pacific with them in about 7 in the evening. here in moscow this thursday, june. the 2nd i'm, you know, neil than you're welcome to the global news roundup on our team. ukraine has fired its human rights commissioner in part for spreading unverified information about atrocity. she allege were committed by russian trips in the country. her removal comes after her claims were widely covered by western media or senior correspondent broadcast it picks up the story. it includes some disturbing accusations. day a nice week saw then months after a month,
12:02 pm
the world over was barraged with stories horrific stories of rape and unspeakable acts committed allegedly by russian forces in ukraine and such acts of violence, raping children little girls, 11 years old, repeatedly in front of their mothers, or repeat backing their mothers and faces the children will each day. more and more credible reports of re killings, torture are emerging. the cone whom you hundreds of cases of rape have been recorded, including under age girls, very young children. and even a baby. it's just a scary to talk about it, but it's true, it happened. women and girls right now are facing the worst kind of fear and violence. and we know already come from the analyses that have been done. they've been the victims of not just murder and rape,
12:03 pm
but kidnapping. many of these stories grew to be unbelievable. and that's not a figure of speech. people including ukrainian officials and the government stop taking them seriously. they became an embarrassment. so ludicrous was some of the ago the woman behind these stories, new nila denise of a, who was ironically, ukraine's human rights commissioner was fired a year before her term was officially up the unclear focus of the on buds men's media work on the numerous details of sexual crimes committed in an unnatural way and rape of children in the occupied territories that could not be confirmed by evidence, only harmed ukraine. her stories became so ridiculous that even members of the ukrainian media, which, which itself isn't war propaganda mode intervened. 18, i'm journalists together with 51 lawyers and human rights activists, and others penned an open let calling on her to darla down that the graphic stories
12:04 pm
published by hubbard months. old douglas being raped with a variety of objects to royal up the people that this was a productive or, you know, decent sexual crimes during the war or a tragedy of families. a difficult and traumatic topic. not a topic for publications in the spirit of the scandalous chronicle. we are forced to trust the official information that comes from officials in a state of martial law a priori. we do not have the opportunity to verify it from other sources. in this way, we are spreading messages from the commissioner for human rights, in fact, taking them on faith as centrally. they asked that the stick to things that actually happened. all of these stories can be tracked back to denisa and that seem most specifically the social media posts made by them. and that's where all the trailed stop, almost all of her raped claims. se ukrainian journalists are without evidence or
12:05 pm
witnesses, despite her own less than honest approach. denise, her has been a vocal proponent for an international criminal tribunal to apparently bring russian troops to justice for things that she had lie. the bath, i think we should look at yugoslavia and rolanda. these are the examples that we all know about. there is the un international court of justice and the international criminal court. we need to push for the creation of a special tribunal laterally. the niece of a has been blind to verify reports and footage of ukrainian troops murdering, torturing, and mutilating russian prisoners of war. and even ukrainian civilians deemed to be pro russia and ill get the human rights apparently. but these telling isn't it when you own politicians who are bent themselves on making the russians seem as terrible as possible that they fly for being simply too outrageous.
12:06 pm
morocco thea, of well, just all non conservative talk radio host steve gill believes media anklets and the west are slowly beginning to question more than normative coming from give you the allegations that this lady was putting out there were horrific. what's even more horrific as if they were just outright buys and intended to create a propaganda scheme that would royal people up and, and create an anti russia mentality around the world again, based on lies, there are plenty of reasons to question the invasion to question what ukrainians have done in the war as well. but there's been so much propaganda that you know, getting the truth out has been almost impossible. but i do think you're starting to see some recalculation in the u. s. media, at least among some to, to be a bit more skeptical of the stories and the propaganda. it's been pushed out. and again, this is, in this case just been repeated without any verification or any basis of truth. we saw that with the supposed ukrainian soldiers who had had marked
12:07 pm
a russian warship and they were supposed to all wiped out, turned out not to be true. you saw with the ghost pilot ukrainian fighter pilot and shot down what it does in russian fighter jets turned out not to be true. and yet the u. s. media and other world meet you just repeated those things, ad nauseam. hopefully we're starting to see the truth start to eat out of bed and, and perhaps maybe he'll not only the reputations of those countries involved. but also the journalist who've been either due to or been complicit too powerful explosions, have rock this sea of as all port city of burdens. then you emerged on line showing a large column of smoke rising into the sky. local authorities claimed the blasts were the result of mine clearance works conducted in the area after the ukrainian army retreated, bertie janski's, not fully under the control of russian forces. while in western ukraine, this footage purports to show a strike in the city of la evolve. for,
12:08 pm
according to kiev, officials are real where tunnel that runs through the carpathian mountains, reportedly used to deliver western weapons and supplies to ukraine. was targeted by russian rockets. local officials say 5 people were wounded. the russian defense ministry house and yet commented on the allegations. the threats of a larger scale war has been raised after a ukrainian member of parliaments admitted the local tv that russian infrastructure is a legitimate target. the remarks come as the u. s. agrees to supply advance rockets systems to give we undertake certain obligations, but no one can guarantee where the rocket will fly. there. earlier washington agreed to send a new $700000000.00 military, a package to ukraine us with the common star alleging including a number of advance rocket launchers that can hit targets up to 300 kilometers away the bite and administration has only agreed to supply rockets for that with
12:09 pm
a maximum range of ac kilometers, but that's still double the range of its howitzers, which washington has been supplying to kiev and would be enough to hit the russian territory. there's only 70 kilometers between the ukrainian city of hark of russia's belgrade, located near the border. the pentagon said cave has promised those weapons won't be used to strike russia stuff despite the us defense secretary, previously admitting they had little information about arms distribution in ukraine . anything they're doing on the territory of ukraine is defensive in this context. they own the formal assurances that they will not use these systems to target russian territory 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 a difficult for us to do. also reports emerging that the by the administration is discussing, sending new drones to ukraine, cold gray ego. they can engage both grand and our target some to 11 kilometers away . they can also fly for up to 30 hours,
12:10 pm
gathering intelligence data. key of was previously supplied with turkish drones, although most were taken on by russian or defense. well, on the claims that they by demonstration is planning to send those long range drones to ukraine. here's our t contribute our ritual market. washington is increasingly going all and found the conflict in ukraine was still pretending that it's not really involved. now reuters is reporting that the by the administration is planning to sell for m q one c, great eagle drones to ukraine. they can be locked and loaded with up to 8 hell, fire misses each. the move raises a lot of questions. like, for instance, how washington could possibly still argue that it's only helping you to defend itself with defensive weapons. when these drones are theoretically quite capable of offensive attacks. they can fly for at least 30 hours. autonomy asleep, giving the long range strike heat abilities, which would represent
12:11 pm
a risky new development in the conflict. and who exactly would be piloting these unmanned aerial vehicles. according to writers, the plan would be for american personnel to quickly train ukrainian operators to fly them over the course of just a few weeks. but how is it possible to really prove who exactly is operating a drone, this pilot remotely from behind a screen that could really be located anywhere on earth? we've already seen how this can work during the cia drone stripe for ram targeting jihadists in countries like pakistan, somalia, livia and yemen. a major pet project of former president brock, obama. american drones flying at a basis in africa and the middle east were piloted by american operators who could have been sitting a world away. a few years ago, former cia deputy director of operations, jap, divine, told me just how much he absolutely loves drones. and i told him that i'm pretty
12:12 pm
sure that i know why they can certainly help to thicken, refunded for and to really muddy the waters for the degree of american involvement in ukraine. how would any one know who's actually when the trigger between the american trainer and the ukrainian trainee, the new york times recorded in may, the american intelligence is already healthy. ukraine to target and chill, rush in general. and washington has a history of hiding conveniently behind allies to target suppose so. and washington was wanting to get more heavily involved in ukraine. well, enjoy plausible deniability. well, it certainly seems that drones would be the way to go. other nato countries are also helping their supplies to kia with german chancellor sure. pledging short range or 2 or a missile systems known as iris t, which berlin has admitted it currently doesn't have any stocks of itself in london
12:13 pm
is negotiating with the united states on the supply of american rocket launcher system. former pentagon security, unless michael maloof believe is being put under us pressure. the u. s. has pushed the nato countries into this predicament and and they are, and the european countries really are now their own backs against the wall. they weren't prepared for this. they weren't prepared for the, the escalation of this crisis to the point that it is right now. and it's rely and once again on the west to try and, and, and now back back fill as we call it. clearly there, they were under us pressure to do something and you get to see the, the defense minister and the defense military, sorta cringing at that at that announcement because they knew that they don't have the, the, the, the, the equipment in their, in their stocks. they don't even have it in their inventory. a lot of these weapons
12:14 pm
are going into the hands of the as of italian and the other, neo nazi groups that are now part of the ukranian military. and we have no way of knowing how they're being used, or it could be sold for that matter and, and maybe even sold to terrorist groups. we have no, we have no way to judge what the end use of those weapons are. and these are rather sophisticated weapons, even small arms, and given the volume, a weapons that have been sent, there is no accountability. and this is another prescription for disaster. a british citizen is facing extradition to the us from saudi arabia after allegedly violating american functions on north korea. washington claims c legally shared knowledge of crypto currency technologies with young young during a conference in the country. christopher douglas sentence is wanted for allegedly
12:15 pm
conspiring to violate the international emergency economic power act, specifically conspiring to violate united states sanctions on the democratic people's republic of korea. by working with an american citizen to legally provide crit to currency, unblocked chain technology services to the democratic people's republic of korea. crypto currency expert christopher m. travel to north korea in 2018 to participate in the conference the following year. fellow speaker, at the event us national virtual griffith was arrested by american authorities under the same charges christopher and our faces. mr. griffin was sentenced to over 5 years in prison. christopher himself is now in saudi arabia after being arrested on the border earlier this year. and earlier i managed to speak to chris who said, as a british citizen, he never thought he could be subject to american law in a 3rd country. the u. s. i choose,
12:16 pm
as he of breaking its international sanctions. when you spoke at the conference in north korea, what's your main thought of occupation? yeah. well you know, my main thought in the accusation is that it's groundless to, to give you some color before i travel to north korea. i'm a, i'm a british citizen, i'm not american. i check all the guidance for my country. i checked the un resolutions on north korea to check that i wouldn't be breaking any law laws or any sanction laws whatsoever. the, the british government, which is where i'm from, and have not charged me with anything. they haven't found me guilty of anything. i was detained due to a into poll read. notice that was issued by the united states and saudi arabia does not have an extradition treaty with the united states. however, that doesn't mean that i wouldn't be extradited from here. so the process now is essentially waiting and submitting all defense retrieve, we've done to,
12:17 pm
to see what the outcome is really. in addition to that, we've challenged the where we are challenging the already notices. we feel that it is totally unfair and obviously totally unjust. when you travel to north korea, were you aware of the possibility that you were in danger of breaking us law? absolutely not. as it, as a british citizen, i had no idea that i would be subject to american law if any other country in the world which performs similar acts where they say that you can be convicted for a crime that a wasn't committed within the territory of the country and b, this the act, the i e, correct, that i'm being accused of clearly clearly states that it only applies to us citizens. so if i can be extradited for this crime, i think it's raises some very, very warring concerns to, to the international community. as to which laws we should or shouldn't bay men in my view. you know, if, if i am extradited,
12:18 pm
then we should be teaching american law in every single school in the world. because we will clearly clearly subject to it. because something else to bring attention to today, the german foreign minister arrested ukraine should be granted you candidate status, but far there will be no shortcuts to its membership one mic alford. you krajina, we cannot flam the door in ukraine's face. now, it's not enough to say you belong to europe. we need to say you belong to the you. it won't be a fast accession process. there can't be any shortcuts put earlier. it's helen prime minister said some major european states are not in favor of ukraine becoming any member, whatever. maria drug, he also stated, he remains fully supportive of care on believes giving come to the c status to ukraine would be an important symbolic gesture. so stangler green, i support ukraine and becoming a member of the you. i have done so from the start, all of the major european states, except italy are objecting to ukraine becoming
12:19 pm
a member of the southern. we may request a candidate status, but this is not currently expected because of the opposition from some countries, which is about of the ukrainian foreign minister said kiev is tired of hearing about alternative scenarios. and how it can join the e. u. last week president lensky. even demanded, the dutch prime minister, give it to your answer on whether there's a place for ukraine in the block. the country was totally must go through the established stages where we spoke to an italian independent journalist on the issue who believes even you tend to see status is out of reach where you so the god, okay. she at the moment, so everything could be done except symbolic gestures such as simply talking about allowing ukraine to be a candidate for the european union. also because we know that from an official point of view, it is almost impossible. and so all this talking just creates more provocations.
12:20 pm
what druggie says doesn't make any sense. in italy, we have long known that drug is words are often false. druggie spoke about ukraine's candidacy as a symbolic gesture. that makes no sense. the west continues to promise ukraine, things that it will probably never get ukraine in my opinion, is now a victim of the war. waged by the united states and nato also involving russia. but of course, ukraine is in the middle of all this business. and in my opinion, the european states and united states of america, misled ukraine, that it can win, or that it can resist. i believe that korean has no chance of winning this war. kia will simply have to accept moscow's demands that i change with china has lashed out at the u. s. after washington, this scribe beijing's expanding influence in the pacific region. as a threats. it follows
12:21 pm
a security pack between china on the solomon islands. having recently been agreed upon in the us new zealand joint statement typing, the relevant issue has altieri or motives and creates disinformation to attack and discredit china. the united states has military bases all over the world, yet it expresses so called concerns about other countries carrying out normal security co operation. such behavior is very hypocritical and reflects a deep rooted hedge, a monic mindset. we urge the u. s. to abandon its cold war mentality, an ideological bias, stop interfering, and chinese internal affairs and stop smearing and discrediting china. the u. s. res. this concerns as president biden met, new zealand prime minister to discuss, among other things, the security issues in the pacific. so the meeting followed a series of engagements last month, not the white house. hell with several indo pacific countries, western on ease of and expanding chinese influence was made clear and joined us new zealand statement. we note with concern the security agreement between the people's
12:22 pm
republic of china and the solomon islands, the establishment of a persistent military presence in the pacific by a state that does not share our values or security interests would fundamentally alter the strategic balance of the region imposed national security concerns to both our countries. just some background to that in april, china, on the solomon islands agreed to a security pack that focuses on this thing. the solomon's national security. while giving beijing the option to send forces to the state, to quote, protect the safety of chinese personnel and major projects. thus raised concerns among the us on its allies about the prospect of chinese bases in the region. than a bed to country china in the pacific, washington wants to ramp up placement of intermediate range missiles. there. however, a new report by the global policy foundation, the run corporation claims, most of america's allies are not in favor of hosting the weapons. and while japan
12:23 pm
is apparently the most likely to assist the paper claims, there's only a remote chance of that happening. we'll nelson wong, vice chair of the shanghai center for impact on international studies. think tank. believe china is interest in the pacific are purely economic it's not so much of a, china's in, in the pacific region. but more of the us, the united states needs to have an n m a. and, and this is quite warri some actually to, to the whole world because china is not in the expansion is the country all china has been doing is to expand the country's economy, economic activities, countries in the region do not take china as a and b, and do not take china as a threat of the u. s. hasn't done anything with these countries and except pull p. so whereas china has been looking into that actual needs of these countries in the
12:24 pm
pacific and to start establishing a very friendly pulse with that. and so i think this is the china threat as being fabricated to serve the needs of the american government. ah, now while the un is warning that a combination of factors are exacerbating global starvation, the european commission president is putting the blame for the food crisis on one person alone. latimer put it is atrocious to see that that deliberately, deliberately putting is blocking the wheat supply of the world. he's making his, he's driving his war am in taking not the slightest responsibility for being the 11 day has to stand up for the fact that people are dying of hunger and famine will be big again. and handler will be
12:25 pm
a driving motor again in the world. when in terms of the global picture, the most drastic situations in africa for to me base a hel, reach, and a 5000 kilometer belt of land south of the sahara desert. it a 1000000 people, their face, severe starvation in the coming months, due to a combination of the ukraine conflict. the pandemic and climate change. hunger that is already a quote on alarming level is likely to worship. by the end of this summer, ortiz been reporting from molly, one of the most affected states in the region. 2 companies like other countries in the sal region, molly is facing a food crisis caused by drought due to climate change, as well as an unstable security environment. there's 2 aspects for much of the population to move to new areas. and now molly is the country with a high rate of urbanized zation is on by 2050 is expected the half of the country's population will live in cities or to meet all the population is becoming increasing the urbanized. it's also extremely young, with 2 out to 3000000 citizens are under the age of 251 in france. the ratio is one
12:26 pm
out of 3. this comes as the country has one of the highest birth rates in the world with almost 6 children per woman had a season for po. thus, in 60 years, the population has increased from just over 5000000 to waive at 20000000 people. that is almost 4 times these figures are expected to double again in the next 15 to 20 years. and consequently, the authorities of the country face it difficult task to solve the issues related to the growth of the population. as it can become a base of wealth for the country, provided that the younger generation can receive education and work with the support of the government name. well, the head of the african union has put the blame for the disruption to food shipments on the crippling sanctions against russia. the country has been cut off from the swift financial system that allies international transactions. we filled out as complicated and even made impossible payments for russian grain which is
12:27 pm
crucial for african states. african affairs analysts, lawrence freeman, feels the west is on little to help. some of the global poorest nations of famine. instead focusing if efforts on blaming russia. hunger existed before either colgate or the russian ukraine conflict. but the primary course for the shortage of food in africa and hunger is the lack of development. and this has been going on for decades and western institutions, europe, united states have done nothing to actually alleviate hunger. the last is been totally hypocritical, millions and millions and millions of people going hungry and dying in africa. the united states were turned back on africa because they will develop the mission easier, hypocritical, statement, blaming the food shortage when russia is false. and as i say,
12:28 pm
hypocritical good, it doesn't tell the truth about one after the decade or the west is going to let people in africa direct american gang warfare and how it's being tackled up the focus next year in our to our short, dark healing from hate gets going right ahead, sticklers for blue. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race group is on, often very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successfully, very critical time. time to sit down and talk with
12:29 pm
i was standing in an alley, smoking a joint one day and a man came up to me and pulled the joint from my mouth. and he said, don't you know that that's what the capitalists and the jews want you to do for we were violent towards those people because we believe that were the superior race. we were here 1st and this is our pantry, guns, ammo, still tow doc martens, tattooing violence just just prerequisite to enter or exit free. walked off like i
12:30 pm
could see this looking to cease about the fear, like he feared me being part of that movement. i got to feel a sense of power. when i felt powerless, i got attention when i felt invisible and accepted when i felt we had a strategy, we wanted to clean our image up and make our message more palatable to the masses. don't get tattoos don't shape your head. don't get arrested. go to college, joined the military, keep your head down. go mainstream news.
