a with ah, moscow says that about 97 percent of the accounts for public is now under the control of russian lead forces. by the south major ports on the black sea. all said to have been the mines and are preparing to make a long awaited grain shipment. washington allegedly precious african countries to refuse to buy grain from russia, seemingly ignoring gay, was sending food prices on the continent with millions on the brink of salvation. a massive backlash, it's nice among several latin american leaders off of the us decides not to advise venezuela, cuba and nicaragua, to a stomach, supposed to improve unity in the region. we think it's
12:01 pm
a continuation of the old policy of intervention, of disrespect for nations and their pupils. what the government of the united states of america is doing is impact of discrimination against 3 nations. 3 government, with very wilma continued. this is the international with the latest world news is good to have you with us this hour and starting off with the latest on the ukraine conflict. as russia military has reported, it's making steady advances and previously ukrainian held territory. and they've gotten the scan done, gets republics. so i'm sure there was a total of 97 percent of the territory of the legal republic has been liberated so far. recovery operations are currently underway in those areas to return to normal civilian life. in mario pl electricity and water supplies have been restored to residential buildings and streets been cleaned. the mining operations are in full
12:02 pm
effect throughout deliberative areas. while the guns republic has come up predominantly under the control of russian lead forces, there is still heavy fighting in the neighboring don't. yes, we're public ones hound. that recently change tons is also goals. renown for its mountain top monastery, moscow defense ministry said ukrainian troops had been using that orthodox sanctuary as cover of the russia had found it would not conduct an attack on a religious site. to the south, russian forces have completed the mining operations at major ports on the black sea, including in the city of mariel poll, allowing the 1st cargo vessels to enter since the war erupt. the docks and reportedly preparing to make long awaited great and shipments. but the local authorities said the ukrainian army attempted to destroy grain stored at mariel pose. pause he corresponding to him on top of the facility trying to get inside. we are right outside of the c port in the city of farmer. you pull it houses and major
12:03 pm
grain storage facility, at least 57000 tons. now, according to local authorities, ukrainian army, as they were retreating from this c port, they tried to destroy all the grain that was here, that so wheat and corn and local authorities said that they could not put out the fires for 3 days free. now my crew and i will try and get in to this said grace storage facility and finds out whether these reports were true. well, the u. s. has been spinning the coverage of africa food crisis. thanks. i'm current russian grain supplies to the continent have been stolen from the ukraine. as africa, struggles with severe food shortages of their faces, a potential famine. ali artie shaw davinsky told me 3 was been behind the latest us allegations against russia. admit this crisis in africa. well, this is the u. s. that is apparently said out a memo to some 14 countries,
12:04 pm
many of which are on the african continent saying don't buy grain from russia. if you do, you must understand that this grain has been stolen from ukraine. that's at least the allegation from the state department in the u. s. and this is a huge quandary for many african countries at the moment. because in a we have seen massive issues when it comes to the delivery of going to these countries that heavily depend on these deliveries from russia and also ukraine. countries that are seeing air problems at the moment with a lack of rain coming in that's being problematic. the crops, and there's an understanding that some 17000000 individuals just in 3 countries on the african continent are facing hunger in the near future. we've also had a warning from chad. it's declared an emergency situation when it comes to food. so there's this big crisis that's looming on the african continent, and now they're being told don't buy grain from russia because it may have been
12:05 pm
stolen from ukraine at one of the things we have heard over know for is how western sanctions are playing into the problems the crisis in africa at the moment, and that's certainly something that the chair of the african union pointed to when he was recently in russia to meet vladimir putin on the diesel. we. there are 2 main issues, the foot crisis and the sanctions. we must work together to resolve this issues. so the sanctions, prevention for supplies are lifted. the sanctions against russia have only exacerbate of the situation. now we have no access to russian grain and was even the worse we have no access to rush and fertilizers. the situation was already bad and now it's worse with foot secures in africa at risk. so russia has denied obviously that it's doing this at, but that is not have the west sees it, particularly in the european union. we heard from at the european union council present, shaw, michelle just the other night at the un who said, you know, this is all russia's fault. let's be honest. the kremlin is using food
12:06 pm
supplies. oh, so still from sale. oh, don't develop, intern threes. did i make a trip to trenches, offer? she swore, or spooling over across the globe. and this is driving her foot prices pushing people into poverty and disabilities ent, entire regions. now, the u. s. continues to claim that russia is blocking the cranes grain exports. so what's the latest on their situation from the kremlin? that's why the u. s. is also accused russia using blackmail it comes to this grain . but russia says it's been very clear, it wants to get these grain shipments out and it's prepared to do whatever is possible to be able to open those ports. again, it is doing this d mining operation in the black sea ports to allow the shipping lanes to be free and secure. and that is something it said it wanted to do. for a long time. the mines that were put in the water were apparently put there by ukraine, leasing them so also as a form of stopping the shipping routes. now,
12:07 pm
what we have seen is that turkey and russia have come to a tentative agreement, apparently, to allow those shipments out turkey saying that will act essentially as a 3rd party guarantor when it comes to this issue. however, keith says it's not a suitably happy with that, and it probably needs to look at the proposals even further. but what we have heard from the ukranian president said lensky is what he believes is what should happen. he's talked about the only way to guarantee the safety of those green shipments from black see ports would be for the west to give you quain, more weapons at particular what he wants them to give him is antique ship weapons. and he says that would be the only way of guaranteeing that safety really difficult discussions. all parties oversee clear to get their own gender out and to be really looking off themselves here. but i think we need to spare a thought for the african continent,
12:08 pm
which is the one where we're seeing millions of people, possibly facing famine and starvation in the very near future. a member of the africa human. it's harry, an action organisation says there's no reason to follow washington's orders. if doing so, could exacerbate the continents hunger crisis. i don't think is appropriate for anybody to tell african smoked bios for from anywhere when millions stop now stuttering. and therefore, it's very important that we get the food as soon as possible before dying. and this is really important that most often congress including the question of why they should support any initiative from any other site is an online company. and therefore, it's very important that africa keeps the goods open with any country in the world . this is very important source for africa because we have a lot of people here. we have climate change in our lives and now have
12:09 pm
a 1000000 droughts, not happening in many parts of africa. simply we cannot make the people of africa poems in this great org that's happening in the sense of per box. the controversial summit for the america is hosted by the us has been causing a major backlash in the region with mexico's president now refusing to attend handy venezuelan counterpart of slammed washington's decision to exclude several latin american countries from the offense. i am not going to the summit because not all countries of the americans were invited. i believe in the need to change a policy that has been imposed for centuries exclusion and the desire to dominate, for no reason. the failure to respect the sovereignty of countries. the independence of each country. we think it's a continuation of the old policy of interventionism, of disrespect for nations and their peoples. no more. so we have expressed our admiration for the clarity and courage of president lopez abra door and all our
12:10 pm
support for the message he has sent. in recent weeks of abandoning the world of sanctions, blockade, exclusions and discrimination. what the government of the united states of america is doing is an act of discrimination against the 3 nations 3 government. we'll look at the white house spokesperson carina john p as they drove on and doesn't want quote, dictators to attend the summit. the excluded countries. i'll keep up venezuela and nicaragua, all 3 previously targeted with the us sanctions. washington has stood by decisions and stress, so they expect the summer to, to still be successful. so it's taking place in los angeles was planned to revive us engagement in the region with migration issues, an increase in the oil trade high on the agenda, i believe is the president has said he went to tank. i believe it was a mall, as el salvador and honduras are also not expected. earlier i discussed the issue
12:11 pm
with a previous us presidential candidate who coordinates the cuba and venezuela solidarity committee. glory at the river. as lopez over to the lord and president of cuba have said, as well as many others, they're all seen. the u. s. is itself, the one that becoming isolated by this highly anti democratic position to deny the invitation to the 3 countries q of venezuela. and he got iowa in the whole world, whether it's the u. s. army of ukraine and its involvement in eastern europe with the sanctions against russia. that if you don't go by the way of the us, you will suffer sanctions, blockade, and even war. and what's taking place right now with a summit of the americas is a failure by the united states because it can no longer dominate and dictate as it used to. and those countries have said, it's time that we have the say in our own continent,
12:12 pm
the community of latin american and caribbean states was formed. so lock, this is why they have begun to insist that there has to be economic and political, social integration of the americas without the u. s. and without canada, who have dictated to them for too long. meanwhile, in asia, pakistan has been looking for alternative ways to conduct financial transactions with russia, amid the western sanctions. as according to the south asian countries ambassador to moscow with the majority of the world refusing to join the west campaign. my colleague in our neo discuss the situation with mohammed atta javits, the director of the pakistan house international things had the euro centric and the u. s. centric and the west centric policies. more or less has been creating lot of trouble for the developing countries. for only one matter, i think the sanctioned the gym has paralyzed many economies. the new world order,
12:13 pm
i would say also can be categorize in terms of how he, one country or set of country stand up to one narrative. the construct that only the western way to deal with any issue is correct. one, a large majority of countries. if you look at them, it will find out that it is only a matter of opportunity when you asked them about the issue. they will speak up, he's got china, india, pakistan saying, well, hold on you're, you're not, you're not talking for us as well. we want to make our own decisions there, and i think it has that be more to the forefront of western leaders mine since the start of the korean conflict. i think it came later to be honest because they were under the perception or view that when they will say that this is the reward will make the decision to the western world in meaning. this didn't happen because the countries made their own minds up. they looked at their own national interests to
12:14 pm
me and the respectively made the decisions when the, during the voting boss wanting. i think also there is a political fantasy on the part of the western powers that they considered, that they can get away with whatever they want to do with any developing country. what example, all those was previous wars. ah, you know, imposed on other countries had shown a very bad result, unpopular to see and making even at their home. is it in the process of occurring western dominance coming to to a close process has started. i mean, they will never accept this a political defeat that they accept at. okay. we failed in all these countries. we could not maintain bees, we loss trillions of dollars. and we had to leave in some kind of, you know, submission to the countries and that in afghanistan included. can you give us a sense of how the east now sees the west has that changed since the conflict again?
12:15 pm
where east has a one comparison that make, for example, i can give you an assessment. these say that all right, all this human rights, all this destruction, this show and propagate whatever happened the ukraine. but what did on the member that any one of them can come out. they came out after very many hundreds of thousands of people could millions refugees in iraq, for example. or we were wrong at the time. and then they went to syria. they had a problem, then they went to libya. so they are looking at somebody that the breasts should have stood there when they have initiated all the unit was but did refuse to accept the responsibility. it is impossible that the united states and other countries desirous to abandon mark sanders shall relationship in the past 20 years, going to a very positive trajectory. and we are of the opinion that this conflict will be dissolved sooner or later. but at the same time,
12:16 pm
the so titian countries that other countries has a great example to know that when the rest decides to something in their interests, they will come together. but when the global challenges there, there were lot, they think that the european problem is everybody's problem is not the way you as president joe biden has declared an energy emergency thank potential power shortages, jeopardize national security and the quality of life. and americans biden has blamed russia and climate change for the looming crisis, saying the u. s. might not be able to generate enough power to fulfill consumer demand. multiple factors are threatened in the ability of the united states to provide sufficient electricity generation to serve expected customer demand. these factors include disruptions of energy markets caused by russia's invasion of ukraine and extreme weather events exacerbated by climate change. and the pentagon
12:17 pm
has added feel to the fire saying that china could undermine us national security threat, beijing's control of t global supplies of rare minerals vital for the production of american military electronics. nazis. callum open explains when it comes to rare earth minerals. china has the market cornered, almost 90 percent. and at this point, we've got a member of congress coming forward, introducing a bill intended to reduce dependency. the chinese communist party has a choke hold on global rare earth elements supplies, which are used in everything from batteries to fighter jets, ending americas dependence on the tcp for extraction and processing of these elements is critical to winning the strategic competition against china and protecting our national security us dependency on china is being declared to be a national security risk due to the fact that missiles anti tank weapons and other pentagon hardware depend on rare earth minerals for their computer chips. when china cut off japan supply, this was
12:18 pm
a very dramatic blow. now we have us officials coming forward and saying we need domestic production of this vital commodity. our mission as a company is to restore the full rare of supply chain to united states of america. and so we have this unique resource, we can also do it in an environmentally conscious way. we have by now invoking a war time law to make sure it gets done. strong words and dramatic legislation are one thing, but actually getting it done might not be so easy. currently, the united states only has one mind that extracts where are minerals and setting up a whole chain could take years. also rare earth mining is not good for the environment, it's pretty eager, logically damaging with long term consequences. also, much of the land that would have to be utilized is currently designated for native americans. not surprisingly there's quite a bit of pushback. there is no situation in which i'm going to feel good about giving even more subsidies to the mining industry. hard rock mining is governed by
12:19 pm
a severely outdated 150 year old law. that less mining companies get away with destroying the environment and hurting nearby communities without paying a sent in federal royalties or paying to clean up toxic abandoned mind lands. it's not just a new too rare. are the elements. the usa also depends on china for solar panels. so white house has just granted a 24 month exemption to the tariff imposed on china in order to allow solar panels to be imported to the united states. the tariff that was imposed out of supposed concern for human rights has been put on hold out of necessity. the pentagon is scrambling to make sure it has computer chips for its weapons. and at this point, us officials are trying to figure out how to set up a whole new chain of mine's tariffs are being put on hold. washington has a big mass on its hands, a big mass that could easily be avoided if they simply learned to get along with china. so far, the chinese government has not threatened to cut off the supply to the us and keeps
12:20 pm
insisting data. one sided sanction is illegal and not aligned with the national policy of china. china repeatedly at a tree war is a lose lose situation. the vital administration ought to a ban on the us imports of a key solar panel, but euro from chinese space companies over force labor allegations you've got over the course of the last few years. similar issues and other reasons such as gina has been used as an excuse for the u. s. to south h to tell you trade war we've china, but he's china who has pings that can tolerate the heavy pollution stage to get to this stage of manage pollution to pick up the whole supply chain of, of production and mining of these materials in the u. s, on the other hand, is highly limited due to heavy and dr. mental regulations is incredibly difficult to synchronize and create a vertically aligned supply chain. that not only exists in china,
12:21 pm
but it's not impossible. irish airline lionel has sparks outrage off the forcing south african passengers to take a quiz to boarded slides to wait out for your passport. it's has was worked in africans a 1st language for reportedly only 13 percent of south africans. now some of the passengers have shed photos of the test and africans, which has also been called the tongue of apartheid. a painful chapter in the country's history. according to ryan, as south africa, passengers will be denied travel on the line obits with a full refund. unless they pass the controversial test earlier, the south african government res concerns, i've been numerous reports for jill and passports in the country. we got reaction from one of the passengers who had to take the quiz to the size of the tool like that was very surprising because i've never had anything like that happen before. the test was basically just asking questions about of africa, but had to be honest in offering doesn't confirm the validity of citizenship at all
12:22 pm
because it only cases for 12 percent of the population. so it's actually marginalizing the population more than it's testing to see if you're a south africa. i mean you take me for instance, i have friends who don't speak any offer, collins at all so they wouldn't pause to chase, but go 100 percent south africa. and it's marginalizing it, it's, it's discriminating against the population and it definitely splits the population, which is what we've tried so hard to avoid for 28 years from my understanding of the situation they're trying to prevent fortune and passport. so i think that matter will be dealt with an embassy and dramatic level, and not a language test. it's, you cannot, victor mazda, traveling population, or marginalize will discriminate against them because of problems. that's it. on a government level, especially like this, especially in terms of especially where we come from our country. what has been through, where it's going, using that language is exactly what
12:23 pm
a project was. you know it marginalized again, that 88 percent of the population and had the 12 percent being able to do anything, brings up all the scores and all the memories from the box as class live, take kenneth, not even awful. my space person for the head of south africa, the pipe province. thank you very much for joining us on the program. and what are your thoughts? do you think wine as policy really is a good way to prevent passport photo? is it a form of discrimination? definitely, i think it's the wrong way of doing it. we, i think the, the mistake that the international community make is that for africa has court 11 official language and 11 official languages. doesn't mean everybody speaks. they are the level that a mistake that people make is that zulu language is one of the largest language for africa, spoken by the majority of african. but i'm not, i don't speak the language. now. the west part of testing people to speak of for
12:24 pm
guns is that it is a very serious the story home it because june, now as we speak, it's a used mark. in june 16, 1976. the young people, south africa rules up against the party. the rules up against the use of the guns as the language of medium instructions that schools. now you doing it again this year on a month, the way it raises again repeats the wounds that the majority of africa as undergo and this is absolutely wrong. i'll give you an example. i speak very little africans the sitting with. i don't understand. my children don't speak the language. i've got a sister who's babies. a girl grew up in the united states. she hardly
12:25 pm
understands language. what's going to happen to her because she travers between so africa and america. now you're saying all of the majority of africans, especially black, should lead africans today so that they can travel overseas. that's wrong, really wrong. that's discrimination. now the walls in africa were caused by lunch. so how do you think the south african government should respond to ryan as policy? i think dish. no, we do on lee. i think i think the fund discriminating those test done, and i just put in year i think, i don't know. honestly, i think the south african government should just deal with this thing diplomatically and talk to all international community. is that what you're doing?
12:26 pm
you're printing. you're taking us back to the party, you know, the government says the language says it's not their official policy is convinced that when somehow it involved in what was going on like i say they're doing this being at a wrong time for their own reasons. i understand a lot of fraudulent passports. yes. but to test all of us in the language your for, it's extremely role. i would suggest the for the government should go on this diplomatically and try to sort out the problems. the many other ways of dealing with the passport from the so many countries in the world, the international travel interest of africa that has managed to evade such and
12:27 pm
proven that they are from whatever country. why is it that the people who would travel through retain and coming to africa speaking english and would accept it with the english speaking? do you think it can be justified for an airline to treat, paying customers in this way? and as opposed to the effort to crack down on possible fraud. no way. i don't think i don't think alone should treat us and just like that one. i thought we got very good at a skins just to wake up a lot. we'll finally kenneth martha former spokesperson for the head of south africa, limpopo province. thank you very much for your time. we appreciate it. thank you. ah, the u. s. a 3rd, 3rd be a to focus more on his goal of joining the a you instead of criticizing its neighbors for a recent scandal when several balkan countries denied the russian foreign minister
12:28 pm
as plain passage to serbia through their space. there being president has been publicly condemning them for approval. i haven't seen the kind of hysteria for a long time. that little serbia has been exposed to in europe and around the world due to the arrival of raw. you can't believe how much pressure there was on serbia because of that visit. it has been facing heavy western criticism for its refusal to impose sanctions against russia. and foreign minister think a lot of was scheduled to visit belgrade on monday to meet with his top officials, including president v church that's off to being forced to call office flight of to be asked based panama from slant the move saying it effectively deprived a sovereign country as a right to its own foreign policy, a professor at the institute of european studies in belgrade, se serbia is being pressured to take a stance against moscow. people in diplomatic circles should be shocked by unilateral acts i would say of nato,
12:29 pm
because this is obviously not a independence solution. independent move on either bulgaria, montenegro, or norma, cydonia. united states is trying to force rubia to really abandon its policy uh, political and military neutrality. i do not use any other word of botch. hm. insulins, because this is a really describing what is happening because we are imposed to behave in a certain way or else. very politically, the fabio to serbia montenegro was, was bombed by a, by nato, and part of its territory. it's still occupied by nature forces. and i think that that's the language that we hear now is language of threats. when you,
12:30 pm
thanks for joining us. aronoff he international will be back in 30 minutes with the very latest to see events. ah, ah, since that break away, but don't it's people's republic wounds been ranging and don't boss. ukrainian artillery, it's been showing civilian, townsend, mining, villages, or more lawfully deal. a lot with
