3:02 am
but unlike its big city brother, the town of papa now has had it worse. and this is what happens to city. his towns and villages that the ukrainian forces refused to leave. for example, this little village of papa. now they, as they fought for every apartment block for every building as they well set up their firing positions on top of well buildings like this. there was no other choice but to well raised the place to the ground has been a month since the ukrainians fled from this place. yet this nary a trace of peace. here only desolation and endless columns of tanks, artillery and other military vehicles of all sorts. key if through all it had to defend the strategically crucial town. every house was a fortress, every street a front line. now it's a key launchpad for the russians and the la ganske people's republics militia who
3:03 am
are trying to push the battles away from this impaired place. even in the city of mario upa, which is battered by the war, we did see some signs of civilian life. i 1st saw people very cautiously, cruel out of the basement. then we saw the public transport. nothing like that here in the little village of papa. now not a single civilian soul in the st. just bangs of artillery fire and a heavy smell of gunpowder in the air. i'm a garage done of reporting from the la guns people's republic. artie ukraine's former human rights commissioner, ludmilla dennis alarm has admitted that she over did it in her claims of sexual abuse of ukrainians by russian troops which even the ukrainian public found lacked sufficient evidence. maybe i over did it, but i was trying to achieve the goal of convincing the world to provide weapons and put pressure on russia. last week, denise of was fired from her post for spreading unverified information with
3:04 am
ukraine's m. p. 's claiming that such actions only served to tarnish the country's image. but only after her statements had made headlines such as these go viral. in mainstream media, russia has repeatedly denied allegations of sexual assault by its soldiers. human rights attorney dan give alex says that there was such a reason for these fabrications. well, obviously, you know, anyone has to be concerned about, you know, claims of sexual violence at the same time, you know, within the last couple weeks, ukraine fired their own human rights of buds men because she was lying about russian sexual violence in ukraine. she was our chief babbled, fabricate caving stories about it. and these were the main stories where we were hearing that were, you know, generating claims of mass rapes by the russian. nevertheless,
3:05 am
the recent security council discussion, once again saw an all too familiar flow of accusations against russia, even though the un special representative on sexual violence in conflict had admitted that such claims were almost impossible to verify. many allegations of config release and sexual violence are difficult if not impossible to verify, making it challenging to assess violence. as a 3rd of june, the human rights monitoring team of the united nations high commission of human rights has received reports of 124. acts of conflict related sexual violence. verification of cases is few ongoing. among the ukrainian territories where conflict related sexual abuse was reported were regions hundreds of kilometers from the front line, far away from russian troops in the west of the country. human rights attorney dan
3:06 am
can look again, tells us that concerns that may be ukraine was involved in those sexual abuses. first of all, we have to be very careful because there's a lot of of the false story circulating. the other thing that struck me at least as far as i could tell, is that the claims now being made to the security council about sexual violence are happening in places from be where the ukrainian military is in control line. so that makes me wonder whether it's, in fact, the ukrainian army that might be engaged in this violence that you also goes all out to blame russia with a global grain shortage and alleged war crime, stopping its agenda. and the fact that the block has no evidence of either does not appear to be of concern. here's archie contributor rachel marson with commentary. much has been made of russia's ambassador to the united nations security council.
3:07 am
he'd been walking out of the session this week during which european council president shot mission you deliver to langley diatribe because speaking at the meeting of a legit war crimes and ukraine designation, they can only be made process on michelle has already attributed any responsibility to russia in his address, when he said we need evidence to hold accountable those responsible, renewed evidence. and that's why we all know, hoping to collect evidence of these crimes. impunity is not an option working backwards from a desire conclusion isn't exactly how the process is supposed to work. michelle said, we welcome the international court of justice provisional measures, ordering russia to suspend military operations immediately. but if you really wanted to help and beyond conflict in ukraine than what are you members,
3:08 am
states flooding the country with weapons rather than on peace? according to michelle, as we speak, we hear reports of russian horses willing sexual violence as a weapon of war. but in fact, as he spoke, ukrainian lawmakers were in the process of moving to fire the official human rights commissioner, nila denisa, who had been spreading most flavored plains of sexual violence against russian troops. but that's what happens when you officials let their wishful thinking and argue like from one. the substitute for care consideration of facts and sources. speaking, if you ever bothered to investigate, extensively documented sexual bias of migrates in libya, which amnesty international and other human rights groups attributed to the policy sending them back in the way of nato's member countries invasion. andy stabilization of that. are this horrifying report jets new light on suffering of people intercept at sea and return to libya where they are immediately funnelled
3:09 am
into arbitrary detention and systematically subjected to torture, sexual violence, forced labor and other exportation with total impunity. so shanisha now saying that you is working to eradicate traffic to protect people holy war. this time in ukraine has to be the height of irony when the you played a role in creating the opportunity for human trafficking of library livia. michelle also would use the crumbling of using food supplies as a self missile against developing countries. but the u. s. and you have just a huge rush of trying to deliver stolen grain to developing countries. mister ambassador of the russian federation. let's be honest. the kremlin is using food supplies. oh, so still for sale are doing developing turn threes. hello. picking
3:10 am
a lane. the shuttle mission is the grain. a stove missile, or a potential of a red is eating a good thing now, or a bad thing. at least mazda was allegedly trying to feed people. ukraine seemed less interested in doing so. recently, our foreign minister made a statement in which he clearly defined that the 1st priority is security. the 2nd is security, and the 3rd is security. if this issue is not resolved, if our country is not safe, no grain will go anywhere because the issue of security is number one for us. well, to badge shall we share, chief eve superstar. didn't get the memo before throwing down questionable and hypocritical assertions in front of the security council. and later in the program, the un warns of a global catastrophe in 2023 of russian and ukrainian agricultural products are not allowed to return to the market. in the u. s. washington is to impose
3:11 am
import restrictions on a chinese province over forced labor allegations. while the u. s. itself has a long history of using labor from developing nations or cheese. rachel blevins come into the united states is now weeks away from implementing a new law that will mean both increase tensions with china and higher prices for americans. the weaker force labor prevention will require companies in china, northwestern province to prove that their products, which include everything from a 5th of the world's cotton supply to parts for popular electronics were not made using forced labor. the members of congress who supported the new law claimed it was their way to speak out for human rights. congress on a bipartisan and bicameral basis will continue to condemn and confront the ccpo human rights abuses in chin jong and in the region and hold it accountable. if
3:12 am
america does not speak out for human rights in china because of commercial interests, we lose all moral authority to speak out for human rights any place in the world. but it's not quite that simple, and there is already been a lot of confusion over what is defined as force labor for chinese companies, as well as what rules american companies are supposed to follow. while you as lawmakers claim they are concerned for human rights. now that concern appears to be non existent for the american companies that allegedly still use labor from sweatshops such as nike and just me. or the companies that have been caught profiting off of force labor and child labor overseas in order to obtain home oil for their products, such as nestle and procter and gamble. and that's not to mention the companies that will do anything for cheap, cobol mining for their electronic many of them dian landslides, from his fixation while trapped underground, or as a result of the failure of machinery. much of the countries colton is extracted by children who work in dangerous conditions as washers and diggers. doing adults work
3:13 am
in a hazardous environment, many colton, mining sites, are rife with prostitution, sexually transmitted diseases, rape, and gender based violence that affect vulnerable children and women. while the buying and ministration looks the other way in order to justify their transition to a digital world, this is been an ongoing issue for years with amnesty international repeatedly drawing attention to the lack of action, nearly 2 years on some of the richest and most powerful companies in the world are still making excuses for not investigating their supply chains. even those who are investigating or failing to disclose the human rights risks and abuses they fine. so at u. s. leaders are only interested in taking a stand on human rights when they believe china is the culprit. now what do we know about the allegations they're making? well, the united nations high commissioner for human rights visited china earlier this year. and he actually praised the chinese government for their efforts, you lift the nation out of poverty and to provide a social safety net for their people. however,
3:14 am
it was her refusal to declare she found evidence of genocide that was met with backlash online. michelle bachelor at the head of the un human rights council should be fired for looking the other way on. genocide during her chinese propaganda tour. michelle bachelor let failed to advocate for repressed readers. barring that she should be replaced, winter term expires in september. say china commission chairs, we demand the resignation of high commissioner of human rights. michelle badger led immediately. she neglect or mandate, and the un founding principals. it's notable the outrage was directed at the us and it's on the ground reporting instead of the us lawmakers who are showing once again they only care about human rights when it fits into their political agenda. personally, i don't think that the americans are actually in the position to criticize others, but you know, you can't expect people to do what, you know, things in the way you want them to. we have to understand that this is an election
3:15 am
year in america, and i think everything becomes political. and also the prox, off the matter i think is the u. s. government is, is going through a process of putting a new legislations to totally reshape the global supply chain. and that affects a lot of industries actually. but whether this is going to be effective or not, it's going to be beneficial to the consumers to the different countries. and connor is that's a different matter. my personal take is that this is very counter productive. ah, molly will continue to be burdened by sanctions imposed by a regional political and economic union. the economic community of west african states came to the decision after it said the countries in term government had
3:16 am
prolonged its transition to democracy by 2 more years. echo wash regrets that while negotiations are still ongoing to reach consensus, the mountain authorities took this decision. the union also demanded that the period be reduced to a 16 month maximum after earlier rejecting a 5 year timeline proposed by molly and authorities with the countries ruling who intent refusing to organize democratic election. it was imposed sanctions on molly, including restrictions on monetary operations and across motor movement a government spokes person claims molly is open to compromise. don't look trans. molly's president of the transition and head of state has always instructed us to seek a compromise between 2 parameters. the demands of echo was on the one hand and on the other hand, the aspirations of the mally and people who wished to carry out a certain number of political and institutional reform for organizing elections. finance. i think that the adoption of this decree is
3:17 am
a very strong proof of the willingness of our highest authorities for dialog. many and molly support the hunter who took a power in 2020 as the result of the military coup, mid major discontent with battles against jihadist by the previous administration seen as fruitless last month. hundreds took the streets to denounce west african sanctions. the presence of french troops on the ground and to show confidence in the authorities. we discussed the reasons for the sanctions and their consequences with journalists by the bed and author into store in jail born molly, in the poorest nations on planet earth. these sanctions also compromise molly's ability to engage a normalized trade relations with all of its neighbors. so certainly it has been a master stroke for friends to influence. echo was to slap the sanctions on march decades ago when molly was 1st entering into independence. it was france that hill to destabilize the regime of been leader. and so i think that many in the muslim
3:18 am
population for quite suspicious, understandably, and just the file justifiably of frances intentions. and i think that that leads them to protests. any move that france names to support the sanctions imposed against malia revonika nomic. nature echo as state reported, embargo ban on the import of goods in tamale, both by land and by the supply and the country. extremely difficult, given that molly has no access of the goods are imported from country 10 goals, guinea or ivory coast as they have it. once more, molly has a border with 3 member states of the saw. he'll fight that is fighting against terrorism, mauritania, nigeria, and became today the channels of communication for the fight against terrorism within the framework. as a 5 has been destroyed, they don't let the united nations ones that the world faces
3:19 am
a global food catastrophe in 2023. if agricultural products and fertilizers from russia and ukraine do not return. the current food crisis may rapidly turn into a food catastrophe of global proportions in 2023 higher energy costs and trade restrictions on the fertilizer supply from the black sea region have resulted in fertilizer prices rising even faster than food prices. but the west continues to blame russia for rising prices, inflation, and hunger. americans fighting on 2 fronts at home. it's inflation and rising. prices abroad and shopping, you credit offender democracy, and feeding those were left hungry around the world because russian of tri cities exist. russian federation claims falsely that the international community sanctions are to blame for worsening the global food crisis. the decision to weaponized food is moscow's and moscow's alone. russia, he, susan, today is the weapon, a full business, disrupting double foot security,
3:20 am
driving of prices and closing double family. meanwhile, in mario po, port, more than 50000 tons of exportable grain are said to have been rendered unusable despite international warnings of a looming food crisis. moscow says ukrainian forces torched, the grain silos ahead of the russian led military advance there. some of the storage and the loading hardware at the site have also been heavily damaged. russia has accused ukrainian military of committing, quote, foodie terrorism against its own people. it is remarkable reports from the scene we received exclusive access to these grains terminal in the c port in the city of maria apple, under my feet, are thousands of tons of corn which was burned down. according to russian defense ministry and local authorities as well. the storage facilities were set on fire as ukrainian nationalist battalions were retreating. the ground here and this corn is
3:21 am
still warm as the result of the fire, which was set to it by the ukrainian and nationalist stood there is still there still smoke in other places as a local workers are trying to put the fire out. now, according to the administration of the c port that were at least $50000.00 tons of corn and wheat which was destroyed, it's now unusable, not only for human consumption, but for life stock as well. roman coster of artsy, maria, golden as people's republic. jack ross, miss professor of economics and politics had st. mary's college of california and radical this i, the director of geopolitical economy. research group says the accusations by the west are little more than a blame game. i think that the whole name, rash and gap game began a long time ago. remember, it was russia that was responsible for hillary clinton losing the election to
3:22 am
donald trump. it's russia that's responsible for the inflation of fuel prices now, right. russia that's in responsible for the inflation of food prices. so i think that it's, it's really an extremely self serving blaine game. if they wanted, they could have made exemptions for food. they love to use russia in order to blame the suffering that's caused by people in a certain sense. it's as though the united states is sanctioning the whole world. they want to try to done to one of the instructional, but so far it hasn't worked. the number of countries that are prepared to sanction rush chalk it up prepared to send a little late to ukraine, actually quite small. they represented by small minority of the world's population . but as most countries are fighting sheilds that, so i don't think it's going to be very convincing. the usaa was really concern. it could exempt the export of grain for a while, as it has for certain bankers and financial transactions and certain
3:23 am
u. s. companies that need certain industrial metals and so forth. there's all kinds of exemptions to the sanctions, but there is a survey exemption interest here on the coordinated states. in fact, as i understand at the u. s. is even warned. some of the countries like, you know, india, turkey, jip, should they get the grain and somehow get through the know their subject, the sanctions from the u. s. which is kind of indication that the u. s. isn't really serious about this if they really wanted to, there would be a way that they could exempted and let this food get out to those countries that desperately needed. also, i think people got to realize it's not just the supply of these actual products that are causing the price to go up the, the constraint of the supply. but you got the international commodity futures, speculators who are driving up the price. you've got the shipping companies are driving up the price and the ship insurance companies even before you have
3:24 am
a problem with the shortage of the actual physical product. so what is the us doing about that? cause of the inflation is full crisis has been brewing for many years or more farm of being squeezed out of how division more mobile land putting into the big corporation. and i think this is not, and also more and more countries have been persuaded over the last many tickets to abandon any concern with their food security and become defendant from the was mark it's. we're going to have continuing through crises and not just in these commodities need these rob, raw food products, but you're going to see problems of hoarding. those countries that do produce we, brazil, us and so forth. australia, they're going to start hoarding their supplies because they know it. sure that's going to drive the prices even more. and then you have a substitute products and complimentary products. they are going to go up like chemical fertilizers going to go up because, you know, natural fertilizers punish isn't, isn't going to go up in price palmer is going to go up animal phase again to go up
3:25 am
. so this is like a, a, an octopus with pinnacle. unicef says severe drought and a lack of international funding, not just a shortage of russian and ukrainian grain are to blame for african children suffering in countries such as somalia un international children's emergency fund urges the world to redirect its attention from the war in ukraine to other crises, if the world does not widen its gaze from the war in ukraine, an act immediately an explosion of child death is about to happen in the horn of africa, across ethiopia, kenya, and so malia, more than 17000000 children are in urgent need of treatment for severe acute malnutrition. according to unicef, almost 400000 children in somalia are now in desperate need of treatment for a deadly form of malnutrition. if 15 percent increase in just 5 months since last year, some african countries have recorded
3:26 am
a vast rise in severely malnourished children needing urgent help. in particular, tenure where numbers have gone up 5071 percent. the situation has been aggravated by the continents worst drought in 50 years, leaving more and more people in urgent need of food medicine and clean water. we discussed the issue earlier with our guests. she 7 nations have never shown themselves to to, to be pro africa. you know, never shown themselves to our history to protect valuable children. if you look at, if you look at history, you've got to have been in libya. what happened in the out? what's happening in palestine on a daily basis. yvonne leaders, especially those of the west and especially those that are lied to g 7 if they really came about the people on the god they really kid about people worldwide. you know, that would have their own agenda is another focus on. you may detailed issues or focus on church issues that focus on the, on the main issues that speak to the men on the ground. you know. so i think the
3:27 am
situation now is bad about pushing their own agenda to build on tape in africa. you know, for a very long time s guys has been seen as a place where you just come and see whatever was in leave with terry about what happens, you know, i mean if you got cars that can closeness, there's so many mining companies just come, especially mining companies on the west just come take over on the leave, you know, and leave those communities. but any roads in italy without any infrastructure, you know, for the same as being german le seen after being people do the equivalent equal to the i think given the situation that at this could be the effects of climate change. and now we know that her grade will not come and the cropping system will not be there. this is going to be very serious because without the crops growing the crops in the, on the ground in somalia and other regions in east africa. this situation will be
3:28 am
worse because that will call for intervention from outside. if a country cannot be able to grow crops because of the effects of climate change, drought, or no rain, then the situation is fair for seem to be very serious. that does a for me and just under 32 minutes i'll be back with another full and 1st look to mr willis. this is our international. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on, often very dramatic development only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very political time. time to sit down and talk
3:29 am
with ah you know, there was no program when i left i kind of and all of us at life, esther hate kind of stumbled our way through it. and then we can take the lessons that we've learned from that and shrink the time frame down. so there's less was less wandering in the wilderness, so to speak. when i was in the move in the last 2 years, before i left, i was struggling with do i want to leave i part of me want to leave another part in . it has been battle with us. if i leave,
3:30 am
i have nothing to fall back on. i have that deposit to do. i have nobody to go to. you know me the exam and live around last 7 years. i have nothing. sometimes it's hard. if they've got a swastika tattooed on their neck, it's hard for them, but just to say, i don't do that anymore. it's kind of a long process. it's not like you just leave it one day and you're like, well, i'm glad that's over. i had been out of the movement before i got connected with these guys, but i was on my own and didn't talk about it and had a lot of buried shame and guilt. and then i met these guys and i saw, you know, friends, you talking arnold, talk it, help me get past that barrier of feeling like i had to hide this from world that opening up has really just taken my, my viewing process and my allusion to a whole other level really, you've gotta find a way to find an affirmation that every discussion, no matter how bad it feels, it is go if you've just got to be able to acknowledge like takes guts to do that, try to help them discover the abilities that they have.
