11:04 pm
this area where only civilians live. mind you. none of the military infrastructure was damaged during the shedding on saturday night. and the shelling took place around 9 pm where most of the people were already at home and likely no one was killed here. only 2 people have been wounded. but during the day on the 4th of june, at least 5 civilians were killed both here in the nest and in nevada and wall of as well. and at least 20 people were wounded. and so the total amount of people that were killed civilians that were killed by ukrainian shilling since the beginning of the special military operation amounts to more than a $140.00 people after 9 pm on saturday nights the ground here was shaking internet can this area in particular, it hasn't seen
11:05 pm
a lot of damage since the conflict began back in 2014. and of course residents here are absolutely outrage your mind. you. the front line of the fighting at the moment is right on the outskirts of the nest. can the civilians are afraid that this is not the last time that they will be targeted by the ukrainian military. earlier film crews from archie and reuters were hit by ukrainian artillery fire on the outskirts of the city of several done yet on friday. okay, ever so far, not commented on that incident, but our correspondent ego has done of was in one of the cause targets it ah ah, we're just about to move into the town of several the nets as we were about to move into and drive into the town we were caught amid a shelling. there were 2 vehicles,
11:06 pm
both civilian the 1st one there was there were our colleagues with the reuters news agency behind the wheel. a soldier with the acme, with the chechen ackman battalion we were moving. we were the 2nd vehicle following them. so again, both cars, civilian and so 1st we heard a couple of shells. a couple of shells landed a good few doesn't meet has around us, so there was no cause for alerts. after all, this is a war zone. so these things they happen, the 3rd one caught the very 1st vehicle, the one moving in front of us. we did see it. apparently it was a direct hit. we saw a bright flash, the vehicle tipped over to the side and it was in it caught on fire was get caught, blaze. so are the driver, the soldier he died instantly right there and well a to the 2 of the reuters crew all of them, they were injured. luckily, nothing serious. one of them has a broken arm and another was wounded in the legs. and i just want to stress and
11:07 pm
point out that are well, obviously the ukrainians, they've saw us. they saw that there were 2 civilian vehicles going towards a towards the town of i sever a de next and they were trying actively trying to hit our cars. it wasn't like they was shelling the general area we were with their target. and so well, they succeeded a full ma gsa to the ukrainian artillery artillery spa says, and those who pulled the plug, pulled the trigger. they did manage to catch to john less of a european news agency. reuters in the cross has and they successfully had their vehicle. but his 1st full interview since the start of the conflict, president putin said that the russian military was successful targeting us arms flies to ukraine. he also commented on pressing issues such as global inflation and grain shortages. the unused delicious region. we're witnessing attempts to shift the blame for the current problems on the global food markets under russia. i
11:08 pm
should know, as common wisdom says, it is an attempt to turn everything upside down. first of all, it's neither yesterday nor with the launch of the special military operation in ukraine that the situation in the sector has been getting worse. it's been so since the end of february 2020, during the struggle with the fall out from the pandemic. secondly, is the short sighted energy policy of european countries. and 1st and foremost, the e commission is to blame. i personally think that many political forces, both in america and europe, have begun to exploit people's legitimate concerns about climate change to promote the green agenda. at 1st sight, it all looks good. however, it's not okay that they've started to give in competent groundless recommendations regarding further actions in the energy sector. overestimating the capacity of alternative energy sources, which are not enough to day while downplaying conventional once in the form of hydrocarbons, it's all lead to a lack of investment in the global energy sector in subsequently to inflation. with
11:09 pm
russia is also being blamed for the grain shortage, which is actually in stock, but is allegedly blocked by russia in ukrainian ports at the blue a look. it's a bluff globally, around 800000000 tons of grain are produced on an annual basis. we're being told that ukraine is now ready to provide 20000000 tons for export compared to the global output. it's just 2.5 percent. given that we, the counts for 20 percent of the global food production output overall. according to the un, it means that ukraine's contribution is point 5 percent. it's just nothing. when it comes to its export, we're not impeding it. there are a number of export routes. there are ports which are under ukraine's control. first of all, in odessa and other adjacent ports in the black sea, it's not us lane minds in the ports. it's ukraine. i have already proposed many times to d, mind them. we are ready to ensure security. we're not going to take advantage of the situation to launch attacks from the sea, so there are no problems regarding the export of grain there to put them cranes
11:10 pm
fired. it's human rights commissioner imparts for spreading unverified information about the trust is she alleged, were committed by russian troops. her removal comes after a claims were widely covered by western media with top political figures also picking up on her statements. our correspondence rod as dia, takes a closer look at the story, which a quick warning does include some disturbing accusations. day and night, week sod, end month after month. the world over was barraged with stories horrific stories of rape and unspeakable acts committed, allegedly by russian forces in ukraine. such acts of violence, raping children little girls, 11 years old, repeated lay in front of their mothers or repeat mapping their mothers and friends . the children will each day more and more credible reports of rape
11:11 pm
killings, torture are emerging if you so include new 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 i'm from the analyses that have been done. they've been the victims of not just murder and rape, 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 stopped 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
11:12 pm
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 is in war propaganda mode intervened. 18. i'm journalists together with 51 lawyers and human rights activists and others pen an open let calling on her to dial it down. that the graphic stories published by ha about months old douglas being raped with a variety of objects to royal up the people that this wasn't 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
11:13 pm
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 witnesses. the spot 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
11:14 pm
a special tribunal. naturally, 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. don't get the human rights apparently. but these telling isn't it. when you own politicians who are bent themselves on making the russian seem as terrible as possible, that they fly for being simply too outrageous. give suggested the new u. s. rocket assistance center, the country could in future have a range of up to 300 kilometers. and this despite depends again, saying this will only deliver rockets limited to 80 political commissioner whitaker, do you remember how this war started when, but they were afraid to give us extra stingers extra javelins? they said it was a precedent, they could never set. and now there are lots of them, the stingers. there could be no talk on artillery and yet western artillery has now
11:15 pm
been received. so where the radius is 80 kilometers there, you see it will be 300 kilometers. crimea is ours, it's ukrainian. therefore, we will show crimea swiftly if there is such a need. this is considered strategic russian territory. and the fact that we hit crimea during the war. that was a little secret. and of some background to that story, washington early agreed to send a new $700000000.00 military aid package to ukraine, including a number of advanced rocket launchers. the bite and ministration said it had agreed to supply rockets with a maximum range of only 80 kilometers. but if you crane were to get rockets with a 300 kilometer range, that would put the russian border city audience within range. as you can quite clearly see on this map, volunteers announcements would also be at risk. now russia has repeatedly warned of consequences if such weapons are used to target its territory. according to the pentagon, key of has promised that it won't use the weapons to strike russia. thus something
11:16 pm
has not been emphasized by the us and boy to ukraine. as president biden announced yesterday, a 700000000 security assistance package had been signed. this includes humorous, long range, rocket systems. this will help your green and forces to a more accurately, but also have a longer range. the exact range will be determined by the ukrainian forces. rights activists, sarah flounder says the new long range us rocket launchers heading to ukraine, will create a dangerous situation for the whole region. from the very beginning, every stage of this war, it's a proxy war. ukraine has no independence, whatsoever. proxy means public. and it's the u. s. it's pulling the strings in every pronouncement. but this will not change the military balance, no matter how many weapons are sent, at least so far, by every measure. the russian military response has been
11:17 pm
consolidating the gains and don, last barre, oh, po, see of arise and so on. it's a very dangerous things and it does show how, how much the u. s. is willing to escalate the war to more and more dangerous dimensions, but i don't think it will change the military balance of forces within the ukraine. ukraine is not doing very well in this war, despite all the grand pronouncements but the danger of these weapon staying in region is enormous. it's enormous for all the possibilities of future peace and it should be clearly denounced and these weapons should be destroyed. hopefully they will be that comes as concern is growing in the u. s. over washington's ongoing ministry packages to give. the pentagon recently said that he has little control over how ukraine uses and distributes those weapons. risk of diversion is one of
11:18 pm
many considerations that we routinely assess when evaluating any potential arms transfer. ukrainian leadership have assured us that they understand the importance of accountability. we're not on the ground with them. and they're not telling us, you know, every round of ammunition that they're firing in, at who and at when we have increasingly concerns of voices at this point about the amount of weaponry and the amount of money that's being sent to ukraine. elizabeth warren is the latest to speak up the u. s. senator. the u. s. government is sending billions and humanitarian, economic and military assistance to help the ukrainian people overcome, put, and brutal war, and the american people expect strong oversight by congress and full accounting from the department of defense. elizabeth warren has started speaking up and she's joined us. senator rand paul, a republican, and we have a bipartisan call at this point for a, an inspector general to look into the dispensing of funds and weapons from the
11:19 pm
united states to ukraine. make sure they're falling into the right hand corner to the global organized crime index. published in 2021 ukraine as one of the largest illegal weapons markets of any country in the world. and it lives, at least any country in europe, and illegally traffic weapons are all across ukraine. this is what's been reported . there are 2 primary sources of elicit small arms and ammunition in ukraine. the diversion of domestic holdings and cross border trafficking weapons from eastern ukraine are becoming an important supply source for the black market. and there been examples of this already. one of the prime weapons used by the i'd states and exported by the states around the world, the javelin, has apparently been up for sale, illegally costing around $30000.00. and at this point, the little looking over the record, what happened in syria? what happened in iraq, what happened in afghanistan,
11:20 pm
and how so many us weapons have ended up in the hands of terrorists extremists at narco gangs and criminal elements. there are some pretty legitimate concerns here as more and more us money and more and more us heavy weaponry is set to be delivered to gray. a canadian journalist covering rushes operation in ukraine has found us of a key based name and shame websites. sub loads, information on people considered to be enemies of ukraine and the sides. house, push a slew of accusations against eva bartlett's participation in the informational special operation of russia. an aggressive country and terrorist against the crate. informational supports of the open military attack, a fascist russia on ukraine. encroachments on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the crate. accomplice in the crimes of the russian authorities against ukraine and its citizens. earlier my colleague unit o'neill spoke with eva who says she doesn't believe the canadian government will take her side or provide any
11:21 pm
protection. so in this case, the independent journalist of maverick media did reach out to me a week ago and they were quite concerned. they took this issue very seriously. the fact that a canadian citizen is on effectively a kill list. and so they did interview me and they said in the context of the interview that they would be reaching out to canadian media. and i believe starting a petition. and they did inquire if i was going to reach out to the canadian embassy in kev to which i said, and you know, essentially there's no point. i already know where i stand with the canadian government. i don't believe that candidate would ever support me just by the dangers even now faces canadian, mainstream media outlets helping silence on the matter of her addition to what some considered to be a kill list. she said her experience have been exposed to such threats unless behind by her own government. i don't believe for a moment that the canadian government would protect me from any of these. these alternation less ex, from types that would seek to harm me because they see me as
11:22 pm
a threat to their country. a cbc journalist has been trying to reach out to me, saying that he would like to interview me on, on my work in the don bass and on my participation in an international tribunal on ukrainian war crimes in moscow. in early april, i think it was. now what i'd like to say about that is, i don't believe for a moment cbc would ever give me a fair hearing on their platform. they are canadian state funded media. they do the bidding of the canadian government and the corporate interests. he did not at once point in his email mention, you know, he's appalled by the fact that i'm listed on this kill list. he didn't say anything about it, but clearly he seen it. that's the only way in my mind that he could have been aware of my participation in this tribunal. so cbc is white washing ukraine's kill list. and instead seeking to inflame the fact that i participated in a panel that rightly calls out you cranes for crimes against the people of it on
11:23 pm
bass. will your work and reporting be affected by your addition to that site? i know i, i look, i can't live in fear. i won't live in here. i will take precautions. of course, when i'm reporting, but this is the thing they, they want to prevent people from. they want to scare people from. i'm continuing to report and that's not going to work with me just like the smears had been lodged against me since late 2016. the intent with the smears is also to just just credit my name and to frighten me and to not speaking our writing, and that that simply won't work. i won't live in here also in this week's top stories, india's foreign minister has hit buckets. western accusations that the country has been indecisive about choosing sides in ukrainian conflicts, as was hoping fund the war by purchasing russian oil. the country's top diplomats also pointed at the european on american hypocrisy on the issue. tell me, mine russian gas is not funding double. i'm unwise. it's only indian money and oil
11:24 pm
coming to india, which funds were to smart gas coming to europe, which once, if her countries in europe and the west and the united church as her cousin, why don't they allow iranian oil to come into the market? why don't they allow, when is when all to come into the market? i'm a live squeezed every other source of oil we have and then say ok guys, you must not go into the market and get the best deal for your people. i don't think that's a very fair to approach these recent decisions phase out. most russian oil imposed loopholes to get around the embargo do seem to be already underway. it comes as indian refineries emerge as a hope for getting russian energy products to the global markets. are see ticker seeing has more, i is leaking the indian short if i need like this one behind me. enjoying the war in you pain began. india was in 14000 barrels
11:25 pm
a day from russia. this number has now shot up to $808000.00 barrels per day, which is an increase of $2600.00, less than a year with us and europe. i figured, i don't all the thank you may have done this shipping company, not 30 fine. it is coming from if i need the
11:26 pm
ocean us many a with enjoy. for example, in a recent article in the u. s, it said that it would only become a great power if it down to washington. of course, you have to look at the smaller print to see that the author is the did it, you know, for things dan, whose do because donors and the defense companies, not talk to men and the u. s. department of defense,
11:27 pm
etc. so little wonder they warranty india, and that would be another throughout the day will contact the industrial military complex. on the one hand, it seems that the best donations are using india delegate tracks. and again, as a bit not in white, i don't, i don't have an issue. i think india never dies. tell me how to do that. but of course, since it's not convenient to explain these contradictions, you can bet that western media and politicians will focus on getting to shame india, but it's gotten policy decisions. was the main story to shape the week on, on the international. do had it was a gun challenge, subscribe from on any of them. money's peaches got money back and then some of the i with
11:28 pm
i look forward to talking to you all. that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given by human beings, except to wear such orders at conflict with the 1st law. show your identification, we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. and the point obviously, is to create trust rather than fear with like take on various job with artificial intelligence, real summoning with a robot, most protective phone existence with a
11:29 pm
pushy russia into the situation and it, but that was not, excuse exactly, you know, all the, fortunately you have now after iraq about to try to pay a huge proxy. they wanna use other countries to fight their war. we can with over the past few weeks ordered thousands of additional forces to germany and foreman as part of our commitment today. those eastern flag allies like it. i see we using it. it was back in pacific. scott: i believe so usefully. issue unique and you stop
11:30 pm
to live. not assume what evening mushy. what on that boy is that much? g e is from workmanship nashville ah, upstate is associated with in close to your state and you think you've shown supposed to begin. on february the 24th 2020 to president putin delivered an address on the situation in don bass. i'm opening it that if you're opening it exactly, why give me a garage you've said that she to louie copper in the petition. new voice media on you got to go see you. i just on that single family can use confusion decision to deploy troops taken after it was clear that full scale ukrainian aggress.
