12:03 pm

12:04 pm
them for me. and i used to live here a little while if you got on the proposal for them for my shift. sure. why not are going to ship them as we were leaving the shelling intensified, the priest, blessed us and said she hopes that we will soon return. we hope that we will find all these people safe and sound and the life rum on culture of our d. no nest people's republic. frances president has a firm that russia is a quote, strong power unsafe that ukraine must negotiate with moscow to restore peace on the continent. meet little bit jelly, the ukranian president, and his officials will have to negotiate with russia. we as europeans share one continent and russia will remain part of it. russia is a strong power. therefore, i have never agreed with an approach according to which we would start in war with
12:05 pm
russia today and seek to destroy tomorrow. it's not the 1st time that a manual ma crawl has called for negotiations with russia, and he sent for the barrage of criticism for it from ukraine and other eastern european countries. over nato members, germany hungry in italy, gave all supported efforts for peace agreements. while nato's had a said, he's confident that member states will assist kevin transitioning from soviet era arms to modern nato equipment. emphasizing that ukraine needs more heavy weaponry. yen stilton bergs remarks came out of a meeting between the blocks, the fence ministers in brussels. ah, laws are committed to continue providing the military recruitment that ukraine needs to prevail, including heavy weapons and long range systems. i expect that the summit nato allies will agree, a comprehensive assistant package for ukraine,
12:06 pm
helping ukraine for the longer term to transition from soviet or equipment to morgan. nathan equipment, it was one of the things that he brought up. but he also talked about this being a dangerous world and said that nato needed to be stronger as a result of that. and he said, for the 1st time since the cold war, that there would be preassigned forces for nato's eastern flag. when pressed on that he said they would be brigade size, were talking about $5000.00 troops at the maximum that could go a quickly to be deployed to some of these eastern flank countries. and he said that putins goal in ukraine was much bigger than ukraine. he said that it been clear when nato allies, it met russia aiden early of this year, where they had basically said that what they wanted to see was that nato infrastructure and also troops that had been placed in countries of joined the block after $997.00 would be removed and he said no,
12:07 pm
this shows that we need to be strong with this case. but when there was that discussions about ukrainian military, he was saying, you know, apart from the fact that they would be this emergency plan that would be put in place at the summit at the end of june in madrid, that the emergency needs to be crane would be dealt with later yet on the backdrop to all this of course is key. ebs, i suppose relentless is the best word for it, insistence that they need more, more weapons from the wares. how's that going? dive yet. that's why the list keeps getting longer. whether that's armoured vehicles, tanks, or other sorts of heavy weaponry ukraine keep saying we need more and more. i thought and berg was asked about the fact that ukraine says it's only received some 10 percent of what it's been promised. he didn't really address that directly, but reiterated the line that we've heard over and over, that nato has given unprecedented support to ukraine. but it's not just to stop him, but that that question has been asked at one us official seemed pretty exasperated
12:08 pm
when also asked with enough weapons had been given. are the ukrainians correct? to complain? said nato allies are not serious enough about providing them the weapons. they say they need. i think the nato allies, individual narrow allies have been extremely responsive in recent months. the list that they gave us early on in the conflict looks very different from the lists that we're talking about. now. we were heavily focused in the beginning on air defense. we're talking about a heavy rocket artillery. we have shifted the conversation. we've talked about armored vehicles. now ukraine has said the reason needs to have more weaponry and more need to stall weapons is because it needs to have parity with russia. but some are concerned that that really would tip the balance in ukraine's favor. now
12:09 pm
a reports earlier came out and i think i called a lot of people's i, charlotte, because it alleged that ukrainian soldiers were getting western arms faster than they could actually learn how to use them. it raises a lot of questions. it does need to says it's been training ukrainian forces since 2014, and that not just the training, but the ongoing maintenance of any sort of equipment it gives you queen is important. and what was highlighted recently is the fact that javelins that were sent from the u. s. to ukraine apparently turned up without any customer support being available. essentially, meaning that when the technology went wrong, which apparently it did on the field, that essentially they couldn't use them. that makes this question. first of all, are ukranian troops were ready to receive west install weapons. and if they are, why wouldn't it be this tech support available? charlotte davinsky kicking me through that earlier now we also heard from former pentagon security policy analyst, michael maloof,
12:10 pm
who believes the u. s. doesn't have the capacity to keep providing weaponry to ukraine up the current pace. as, as european countries provide these weapons, they expect backfill from the united states. and the united states in turn, has its own limited supplies. and in order to meet those demands on any persistent basis from here on out, which then raises the question, what is u. s. policy toward ukraine? ultimately, the u. s. is going to have to ship it's production to a more war war time production. if it's going to be prolong in this of this conflict. and before the conflict arose, we dangle these, these little, these toys, these exotic toys to them and come to depend upon it, but are not sufficiently trained. there was no way the united states was going to be able to sufficiently supply and prolonged the supply
12:11 pm
train indefinitely without running into this very problem. and you have no assurance. the bottom line is you have no assurance that those rockets are not going to be pulled up to the border and fired into russia and created and create a whole new level of escalation that we did not anticipate. and that's what kirby was saying. well, it's up to the crate and so they want to use the equipment. well, wait a minute, they're gonna get you into a further war. if that, if you don't have limitations or if you could supply the stuff without conditions. and i think that germany is at odds with even salt berg. and his approach there is, there are cracks in the, in the nato solidarity if you will. and i think germany has been much more cautious given the politic politics of the current chancellor. i think that they take the lead him in the direction that nato countries are going to be going. mexico as
12:12 pm
president, has slum nato's policy towards the ukraine conflict, calling it's a moral that comes just days after he refused to attend the u. s. hosted summit for the americans because washington refused to invite several other countries in the region. i'll supply the weapons and you supply the dead. it's immoral. how easy it is to say here, i'll send you this much money for weapons. couldn't the war in the ukraine have been avoided? of course have could. moscow earlier said it wouldn't send arms to ukraine and refuse to sign off the sanctions against russia under as manuel lopez, abra dora has advocated for dialogue as the best way to resolve the conflict. mexico is leading. the charge against us had gemini, after washington excluded cuba menace wheeler nicko regular old, free the subject of us sanctions from the summit for the americas. historically the
12:13 pm
u. s. has been latin america's top treating partner, but it's not facing a new challenge from china. we spoke with a coordinator for the cuba and venezuela solid dorothy committee who says the area is now actively demonstrating more opposition to us. dominance i believe is more than just cuba, venezuela, and you can either posing problems for us had germany. even though a good number of nations of latin america attended the summit of exclusion of biden's. they still announced and declared in the summit, they were not happy with what was taken place. and it's a warning. it's a warning from argentina, from other leaders who said, you cannot continue this. the fact that the u. s. was hosting the summit of the americas did not give it the right to decide who belongs mexico with love is over, is saying now we speak as a latin american nation as
12:14 pm
a latin american nation on behalf of all of latin america and the caribbean. and why look over as the most significant figure refused to attend the summit of the americas, that will probably have some repercussion. but i think what's happening in latin america and even in the rest of the 3rd world, is that countries are saying, we don't want to be bullied anymore. and we will act in concert with each other to coordinate more together economically, politically and reject us had gemini, which doesn't bring any good to those countries. vladimir putting us discuss food security issues with south africa as president in a full call that focused on russian grain and fertilizer supplies to the call to the big issue right now. the 2 leaders call for increased trade within the brick framework, reiterating china stance that the block is a vital force for regional economic growth. now the bricks grouping consists of 5
12:15 pm
countries, brazil, russia, india, china, and south africa. and is considered a symbol of a rising multi polar world of its members seek to increase economic cooperation with each other. a prominent russian officials on bricks, delegates has pointed out the contrast as he sees it between its approach dots of the west. i'm glad, darling doubt, and not as if he had done yet, but i brake is a stabilizing factor in an increasingly turbulent world. the brakes partnership isn't the aim against anyone. unlike the u. s. the u. k and their allies, briggs, countries don't stick to impose upon others. a world order based on rules invented by the west. i'm convinced the brakes should play a leading role in resolving global issues. go up by ok, know the story to bring you to the on a busy newsday gas prices in europe have been surging on the news that rushes to stop using a crucial turbine for the nord stream pipeline. hindering
12:16 pm
a key compression. spacious mosque was a western sanctions have prevented adequate maintenance work and will cut supplies by the station in question by a further one 3rd, to no more than 67000000 cubic meters per day by europe has been increasingly vulnerable to gas supply disruptions. that's russia also stop deliveries to recipient companies and poland on bulk area following their refusal to pay for the commodity in roubles. earlier in the week, moscow said it was reduced and gas sent to europe 5, north streamlined by 40 percent of what was previously planned after german company, siemens energy failed to deliver repaired gas turbines to russia on time due to sanction due to the sanctions imposed by canada, it is currently impossible for siemens energy to deliver overhaul gas turbines to the customer. against this background we have informed the canadian and german government and working on a viable solution. yeah,
12:17 pm
last week. tell you they expand the bits list of sanctions against russia targeting the oil, galsen chemical industries. it hampered the return of key turbines about our manufactured in canada and must be sent there on a regular basis for maintenance. the united been sent european gas prices soaring into the double digits. we spoke to political analysts. i listen that bruno, who saves europe and people want this situation to be resolved soon as possible. i think canada might allow for the turbines eventually to get back to germany, but will the turbine be then sent to russia? that's a very difficult question to answer. and this is one of the few ways they can put some pressure. because of course, we've seen the other effects have been completely in russia favor. i believe russia has never had such revenues from gas because europe is increasing its imports ahead of the fall where they feel they're going to be
12:18 pm
losing as not having enough supply. so the, there's a surge of demand, russian gas. so and germany, i'm sure would like for the, for the situation to be resolved because germany and italy, the 2 big, most of the largest industrial powers in europe are the ones that will suffer the most from this situation. ok, moving the program on the following algeria, suspension of a cooperation treating with spain. madrid has claimed that russian influence was behind the decision and those his be guy. so back then that algeria was more and more aligned with russia. so this decision to suspend the treaty didn't surprise me in the algae or suspended the friendship cooperation, treaty after 2 decades, going as far as to bound all non gauss straight submit escalating tension between algeria and morocco with a disputed territory of western sahara with spain,
12:19 pm
basking moroccan claims to the land, algeria is one of madrid's main suppliers of natural gas, but last year shut off its pipeline supplies through morocco, leaving spain with just one direct link that it relies on for continued supply. the diplomatic ra between spain and algeria erupt, it when madrid made an abrupt you turn on sided with morocco, in the long running conflict over western sahara. the moves and shock waves throughout the l jury and governments and stern attention between the trading partners. previously, madrid had been neutral on the conflict, but not openly support moroccan sovereignty over the contested area on africa northwest. we heard from a political sociologist who thinks stuff the 1st spin is chosen assigned is not conducive true resolving the conflict. governments in spain has made its choice. it does not want to have problems with the julia, but given the circumstances of shifting geo politics, they chose
12:20 pm
a different path of frozen conflict. there's no other issues. there's no other solution so far that was incredible and possible, but the one that was suggested by the government and, and frankly speaking, i believe that even though spain has chosen that pat, i don't think that the, the conflict will be resolved anytime soon because it's still within the city council at the ware has been going on for decades now since the independence and mostly during the cold war with the other logical alignment dungee with the east camp and moral go to western camp. and no one really managed to be a demonic in the region. so i think it's high time that both countries rethink this policy of competition and it would be stronger together. now while the u. s. ny plans to send an additional $650000000.00 of military aid to ukraine. the
12:21 pm
united nations is desperately calling for funding to prevent a potentially devastating oil spell off the cost of yemen. un member states of pledge run 3 quarters of the $80000000.00 needed to remove an estimated 1000000 barrels of crude from a decaying tanker ship in the red sea to find the additional money. the un house launched a crowd funding campaign. a potential oil spill could cause an estimated $20000000000.00 in damages. the tanker it was built nearly 5 decades ago and subsequently converted into a floating storage facility. it hasn't undergone sufficient maintenance work since the many civil war erupted. 8 years ago we heard from a regional expert who believes western leaders don't really care about problems in the developing world, despite what they make me to develop service. according to the charter of the net nations environmental rights became one of the fundamental flights of the human
12:22 pm
being before a sample of some sort with some sort of real need. and if that could be to treat these environmental catastrophic issue, especially in the c bop. now we see a lot of friends, especially on the west, you and unfortunately, he's motivated by the dominic countries, especially us, greek. that's an and frame. and for the middle east and the south country are not on there, they are just focusing on just the problem. that's near following their folders, but if he's disregarding any other bobbing away from the photos. and if you see also we have a pop in and fall assigned. we have a problem, we have a problem in levy, we have a problem, any walk, we have a problem in somalia and all of them made by the west. one of the world's biggest economic forums kicked off this wedding,

12:24 pm
the west wants to cancel us to defeat us to dominate us. but at the same time, they want to coexist with us. they need to fix something within their values and basic principles, and develop a unified position that nobody, if they believe in their policy of canceling russia and restraining our country's development in accordance with that policy. then they are isolating themselves. the whole world is watching what's happening. asia, africa, and the middle east are drawing their own conclusions about whether the west is a reliable partner brain, when russia is supposed to be voided by everyone in every possible aspect. well, that's what these people want. the new world order to be like the nation still goes for it. it goes for a hosting, a big international business gathering. it's called the st. petersburg international economic form. it's been happening every summer for 25 years.
