ah, ah, in the west fuel that a global inflation storm through its short sighted policies, according to vladimir putin comments at the international economic form in saint petersburg. i mean, we all hear about this so called qu tins, inflation, who's listening to such nonsense. everyone understands the real reasons. huge sums of money were printed and this money was used to purchase goods and services outside the western countries on the global markets. in an exclusive interview, r t spoke to american mercenaries captured during battles in northeastern ukraine.
they did start reporting on the fact that there had been conflict in dumbass for, for the past 8 years. and, but it was always presented as russian aggression. i hope one day i can go home and forget conflict in this charter to live on people not to come here. new admissions of fabricated coverage on the war and ukraine with usa today. now recognizing in some of its pro ukraine articles, vilifying russian troops are fixed with broadcasting live from our studios in moscow. this is art international and sean thomas certainly glad to have you with us. now vladimir putin has shared his take on the global economic crisis, as well as russia's reaction to the unprecedented sanctions from the west. he was speaking at one of the world's biggest and most important business events. the st. petersburg international economic forum.
ah, and one of the main topics of friday's discussions was, of course, the military operation in ukraine. ortiz, the editor in chief, margarita manion was the moderator at the forum and asked the russian president about the future of done by us. but by yet some error, people in our country and in the liberator territories, are afraid that we will quit and leave will relieve your some of it. we will support the people living in these territories. but in the end, only the people who live there will determine that future and we will respect any choice they make. what we do, so let me put and weighed in on a range of topics in his speech at the st. petersburg, international economic form. they included how the so called blitzkrieg of sanctions against moscow has failed. the president also mentioned an inevitable end of the unit polar world order and the importance of technological sovereignty to
ensure russia can produce and provide for itself while avoiding international self isolation or cheesy potential has more from the form. well, we almost knew that because of latimer potent was going to use strong language and throw punches at the u. s. and allies. but the russian president got very tough, perhaps even tougher than expected. and, you know, the speech almost sounded like a lecture for russia's geopolitical enemies. mr. brewton also lashed out at his western colleagues for what he called losing common sense. and also literally forgetting about the interests of their own people. all in a bid to we can russia, president putin also brought up how global economic hardships were being blamed on russia. constant the which according to the russian leader, is totally unfair and simply wrong. lucia was lucian,
but the consumer will hear about this. so called putin's inflation, who's listening to such nonsense, it's intended for those who can't read and write that. so russia and our actions on liberating dumbass have absolutely nothing to do with it. the current rising prices and the problems with inflation, the problems with food and energy supply, gasoline and the energy sector crisis. all of this is the results of the systemic mistakes in the economic policy of the current administration in the united states and the european bureaucracy. that's the reason and that. so for them, the beginning of our operation is a lifeline that allows them to blame their own failures on others. everyone understands the real reasons. huge sums of money were printed and this money was used to purchase goods and services outside the western countries on the global markets, taking all the supply. no one wants to think about the interests of other countries,
including the poorest ones. the world is changing very fast, and these changes are revolutionary, says latimer potent. he also believes that while the, these changes are inevitable. american and european governments are actually going against the course of history and are stuck in the past. plus, mr. brewton blamed the threats of a potential famine in the poorest countries purely on policies chosen by the leaders of the u. s. and allies. he said that the sanctions led to enormous fertilizer price hikes, which clearly worsens the food crisis. when it comes to the effects that the sanctions of had on russia, president putin noted that they are much less serious than expected by the authors . why? because of how russia evolved in the recent times. so mark and so sir, as i put in the sensor, the construction of western sanctions was built on the false thesis that russia is
not suffering from an economic point of view that it is critically vulnerable when they go. so carried away in spreading the smith. they themselves apparently believed it. when planning the economic blitzkrieg, they did not know to simply ignore the real facts of how our country has changed in recent years. with these changes of the results of our planned work to create a stable macroeconomic structure in short, food security or implement input substitution programs, full marin payment systems, and so on. rough as obvious answer to trade embargoes and also a hail storm of anti russian restrictions by western countries was cementing friendship with the likes of bay ging or new delhi. and also a number of other countries in different parts of the world. like latin america or africa, but mostly in the east. however, as we heard from president putin, the importance of close ties with china and india was clear,
long before the events of 2022 policemen needs miasma. a multi polar world is inevitable for you and those who cling to their imaginary global leadership. it's all costs and making a colossal mistake. alice, this is a mistake that will cost them daily. i have no doubts about this. you can go as for relation to the asian countries in general, and with china in particular, if we did not just start building relations with them in connection with the latest events of recent months. so yes, we have been doing this because in asia and in china, the creation of new centers for the development of the world has become quite obviously, ideally the same goes for india. there are also about one and a half 1000000 people with their markets in economy and developing very intensively to stone african and latin american countries are also actively developing that i mean, the child. so right, that was the session fall of a very strong and very important messages for those who weren't actually in that room, but were very far because they either boycotted the form or called on others to do
so. the question is though, whether any of that is going to be taken into consideration by them. on the sidelines of the forum r t editor in chief, margaret tulsa. manion said that it doesn't really matter if the west hears russia or not, as letterman putting has made moscow's position clear enough for the people. i mean, yeah. well, it's not so much the speech that matters to me, but the emotion that i felt while listening in the confidence that had the therapeutic effect on me and on our people in general. it is clear that the speaker was calm, confident in a great mood, very friendly people who are not sure of their well being in victory. don't talk like that. and they don't spread such emotions around them. but it was important for me to hear that we will not leave that the people who want to stay with us will stay with us and that their decisions will be important. it doesn't really matter if the west hears us or not. you were in a stable track and we will not. we're away. since the beginning of the war in
ukraine, many international artists working in russia have borne the brunt of the council culture. but now one of russia's most successful italian born conductors, fabio ma strung jello has underlined that despite such pressure he has never once thought of leaving so much. i lou in the very beginning of this process, i received many calls from people asking if i was going to return to italy and leave russia. i answer, of course, no saying i'm going to stay in russia. i didn't even have any doubts. my family is here, everything i wanted out of life i received in russia, and i am proud of that. it's much more difficult in russia to become a conductor because russia has more talented people in the field than anywhere else . i've been living in russia for 21 years now. i used to joke for a long time about life in saint petersburg. people thought it was hard to live there. i answered. no, they won't let me live there because they're so much touring. i'd like to be at
home in saint petersburg more often. it's one thing to love culture because you've read literature because you've played a lot of music or conducted a lot of russian music. what makes me happy is that during the last 20 years have seen the country grow in the standard of living and proof. of course, there is no doubt. i will be here forever. yes, nothing. ah. the guns can republic, officials say some ukrainian soldiers have surrendered in the republics city of 70 done yet got a local chemical plant. now official, save that, the number of those who surrendered and their affiliation to certain units has not been disclosed for security reasons. that's to avoid persecution of relatives of those who have laid down their arms according to various estimates, up to 2 and a half 1000 troops, including foreign mercenaries, are believed to be hold up in 70 done yet. industrialism and with more ukrainian
soldiers and mercenaries laying down their arms or t correspondent from uncle spoke with to us fighters recently captured in northeastern ukraine. just tell me the circumstances around your capture or did you surrender? how did it happen? we were in, i don't know the location, but we were in the like a force car, key area. we engage in combat with russian troops. the ukrainians were retreating and we were asked to cover their retreat. when we were covering them on the rush and force ran over ran our position, we had to like fully retreat and when one of my colleagues and i waited about 3 hours in a final just to make sure the coast is clear. after those 3 hours,
we ended up walking 4 through the woods for about 5 hours. we've actually got on to a road when we surrender to russian forces on what. so what made you make your way out of here to to you. great. i initially won wendy conflict, started on february 24th. i saw a lot of news. and again, i now believe that they were propaganda from the west side. not specifically just america, but the west as a whole that says that right russian fort worth it like indiscriminately killing like civilians and do my travels. i did not see that say it was probably my naive miss my stupidity of coming here with not a lot of knowledge of the conflict as a whole. i hope one day i can go home to my wife and start a family and forget a conflict and just try to the people not to come here. what did you know about the
bus before? i mean, come here. i was reported or you know, prior to like january, february of this year, i really knew i couldn't even tell you where you was on them out to be honest. we were not getting that news, but when things kinda started mumbling up and then kicking off here, they did start reporting on the fact that there had been conflict in dumbass for, for the past 8 years. but it was always presented as russian aggression in that area. we were not told about any ukrainian attacks that were told about the ukrainians is that they were in trenches ready, ready to defend you now. i feel like it's still the war here. oh, it's not my war. it's not my or i feel for the ukrainian in people i feel for the russian people, you know, i feel for everyone involved because, or is, is terrible regardless of the circumstances. i don't know why the west focus is,
is just sending weapons, weapons, weapons, money, money, money. there is a diplomatic solution to this problem somewhere. but it's going to take some time to get there. and i just think that they're at this time, they're not willing to deal with it. so they'd rather just give a bunch stuff to ukraine and let it be ukraine's problem. i would say tend to anyone who is thinking about coming over, you think really long and hard about about why you're doing it and what can happen and, and if this is really your fight, if this is really something that you need to be doing right now the fake war over the conflict in ukraine is still going with an american newspaper usa today, not recognizing its tendency to fabricate facts. after a reporter was fired for inventing sources in articles. the old, it revealed, at some individuals quoted when not affiliated with the organizations claimed and appeared to be fabricated. the existence of individuals quoted could not be
independently verified. in addition, some stories included quotes that should have been credited to others. as a result, usa today remove 23 articles from its website and other platforms for not meeting our editorial standards. miranda has resigned as a reporter. at least 2 of the report. his articles pulled by the paper focused on the conflict in ukraine. one of which suggested that negligence by russia over it, after it took over the approach of nuclear power plant in the 1st weeks of the war . while a 2nd focused on the ukrainian, the brave ukrainian women fighting russian troops also deemed to be based on fake quotes. the publications have offered an apology for the articles and fired the reporter who wrote to them while pledging to improve their fax correction system. now the stories now joined a library of shame pumped out by western media since the start of the war, including an incident report is used all the footage of the ukrainian showing of
done yet that left dozens of civilians dead to company stories related to the russian showing of kiff from one that we didn't cross live and discuss this with steve gilley, radio host and political commentator joins us from the us. so we heard for years and years in years about the fake news, but why now so many fig stories and article specifically on the war and ukraine being published without really any fact checking. i think it's been a problem for a long time and just take that usa today. i don't think anybody believes if this was the only reporter engaged in this kind of making up quotes, making up stories, it takes a culture to produce that kind of outright buy and a pattern. and i think the real irony is that this is a publication that does the fact checking for facebook, and they can even check the facts within their own newspaper. and jeanette, which owns usa today as newspapers throughout the united states,
including the nashville, tennessee and newspaper. i them, i think there's a bigger problem that just one reporter and really a bigger problem than just the ukraine war. but i think it underlines that there is an agenda in the media and they're not above lying to promote their agenda, even if they can escape scrutiny for a long time. when we look at the bigger picture, usa today and many others have recognised face coverage of the war and create another instance. well, but even after the stories have been taken down, i mean the damage has already been done, right? i mean, what can be done to prevent this from happening in the future? yeah, i think you've got to have real journalists. you know, i've embedded twice with us troops when they were engaged in iraq and, and there weren't many reporters aren't many journalists, you're actually going out into the danger zone, so to speak, with the, with the troops. they were staying in the green zone. they were staying in the hotels. they were, they were getting their stories from what people were telling them rather than what they were saying. and we have certainly seen that in ukraine, where the,
the reports, the reporters on the ground have not necessarily been with troops, ukrainian, or russian troops reporting what's actually happening. and, and i think the real story of this war is going to be a long time in coming. it may be months, it made years. so we get the actual truth of what happened. i mean, you go back to the, to the fighter pilot, it was the ghost of gm that was suppose the shooting down dozens of, of russian aircraft turned out not to be true. you had the sailors, ukrainian, the ground forces that were taunting a russian worship that supposed they got obliterated, turned out to not be true. and those are just a few examples of the fake news that is, perpetrated the public perspective. certainly in the west, from the beginning of this it's all i said that news is used as the propaganda on both sides. if that's the case, as it were, to have to be careful what the sources and what the information is and where it's coming from. now, the writer of these articles has been fired. is there any type of legal accountability that she can face because of these fake articles?
you know, i think if she's slandered or liable particular individuals in her stories, it's a little bit harder for say, a country that's been slandered with fake news to, to get any toward a sort of recourse. but i hope that usa today won't stop with this incident again, i think there's a culture of this information is taking place and in the media globally. and certainly in the united states, we've seen it with the smear campaign directed against president trump in the last or years. so i hope that they don't stop with this firing this apology and think that their work is done. again. they have hundreds of newspapers and other media outlets that are owned by ganette and they need to be searching every one. say that the same thing is not happening because i think it's more of a culture. it is just one rogue report. kind of a broader question, what kind of pressure do you think that western media is under to create articles that actually favor their government's positions by under tremendous pressure? not just because of their own in the ology,
i mean the people they get hired at newspapers by editors that have a liberal, bent by their supervisor that have a liberal journalism colleges that they go to that have a liberal that they come in with a perspectives that is not necessarily an accurate world view, and then it gets promoted with, with not only who hires them, but who promotes them. so i think it's a major problem. we've seen it in the u. s. for a long time, and i think it's a dangerous problem because if, if the public isn't getting the truth, it really is hard for a democracy of republic operate because you're, you're counting on an engaged and informed public to cast a valid notes. and when they're not accurately informed. busy they're just being led down the primrose path by politicians and, and by news outlets that are acting in concerts. we saw with the cobit reporting, we now learned that much of what we were told in the united states and globally about cove. it about the risks about the need to get back to native that the vaccination really didn't work like we were told they were trying to cover up the
information from the visor for 75 years. but because those documents have now come forth, we now know that they knew that the vaccine was safe as they were claiming. and yet media outlets, politicians, our government was forcing vaccinations on people against their will. and they were all acting in concert. it's important. know where your news is coming from. i mean there are state sponsored news channels of course, rti, but there's also corporate and private entities as well. just got to know where your news is coming from steve, gil radio, host and political commentator, whatever. with a selection traditional thank you and the european commission has recommended that ukraine be granted candidate status in a 1st step towards the membership. but the commission chief. busy says key has a lot of ground to cover before the country can take part in the so called european dream. the commission recommends to the council 1st that ukraine is given european perspective. and 2nd that ukraine is given candy,
that status. this is of course on the understanding that the country will carry out a number of further importantly forms and we all know that ukrainians are ready to die for the european perspective. we want them to live with us the european dream. so the move today by the european european creation leadership to recommend ukraine as a designated candidate for you. membership is mainly a symbolic piano move to project you solidarity with ukraine. you commission prisoners, lavonda lane, made it clear there that there are a lot of conditions attached to moving forward. what's called a number for the reforms needed by ukraine. and yeah, no kidding. michigan zone you allows for porter is movement within the zones. there's no way that country like ukraine with a hot military coffee, fire swollen, poorly tracked weapons flooding in supply fighters include foreign back neo nazis could cause the lead part rewards result with the rest of the you with those
weapons and fighters able to roam around germany, france nbc, when you, that's just absolutely ludicrous and would prevent present and obvious threat to the rest of europe. now ukraine was routinely derided by western media tanks, pre conflicts for authoritarianism, incorruption, all which now seem to have just magic re banished the european commission has found that ukraine over all is well advanced in reaching the stability of institutions guaranteed democracy. the rule of law, human rights and respect for protection of minorities and has gradually approximated to substantial elements of the e. u. a queen, in many areas. a recommendation which comes a day after the leaders of germany, france and italy expressed theirs. corbett does not confer kennedy status. we ought to remember that the 1st step on the past membership. but those are the cause of the eastern european countries heading into a european council summit on the issue next week. now to move forward all 27 member
states, if you must agree, but even if they do full membership free, craig could be many, many years away. something that french president, a member in my home has been pointing out level bundle. we do not have the rights after so many weeks of war and such a difficult moment to tell the ukrainians to come back later and therefore a signal must be sent. now. yes, we all ready now to recognize your status of candidate for you membership, but we also told them frankly, this process will take time. there will be conditions that will be a roadmap, which will be made by the commission to be fulfilled. and therefore, you will not become a member of the european union to morrow. still, there are no guarantees. i think it's important to remember that a slight denmark in the netherlands, for example, have already expressed opposition to ukraine's included in the block. and there can't be any dissenting e member states for ukraine, yet the green light for at least the commissions announcement today allows the leadership to tell ukraine that well, hey, we're trying our best political analyst nicholas medical vision. believe that the
you is desperate to ad ukraine. to the block, but t of is entirely unprepared for such a move. i think this is a political stance that the you is, is mustering moving now because europe, your opinion has been doing anything can to try to get and ukraine inside. i think and seeing today that it's losing ukraine or that there's a possibility that it may be using losing ukraine. and it's doing it. he can to try to push the ukraine into the region in some way or another thinking that maybe ultimately, this may put pressure on russia to, to stop, to stop the ongoing military activity. because maybe a few crane were in the european union. this would, this, would this stop russia which, which is absolutely wrong. and if we look at the details, if we look at the ukraine today and the conditions entering the european union, we see that ukraine efforts, practically,
none of the conditions said to the european union fundamental criteria set out by the european council itself to, for any european member to enter, the european union are not meant by ukraine today. so having the head of the council saying ukraine can enter the european union. now by that ukraine does not follow the criteria of copenhagen is really it is a joke. as julian assange faces up to 175 years in prison on espionage charges after legal approval by the british home secretary, his wife and legal team denounced wiki leaks the co founders extradition. order to the u. s. process is being used to hide atrocity and we know that from histories that that can be done and the u. k. should not be doing that. it should not be engaging in prosecution on
behalf of the foreign power that is out for revenge. that decision to lead to international outrage, human rights organization, such as the committee to protect journalists and amnesty international have spoken up for a slash. the extradition of julian assange to the united states to face trial on charges under the century old espionage act. as a blow to press freedom with implications for journalists everywhere, we urge the bite and administration to live up to it stated commitment to a free press by dropping all charges against the wiki leaks founder. allowing julian his sons to be expedited to the u. s. would put him at great risk incense, a chilling message to journalists, the world over, we call on the u. k, to refrain from expediting julian assange for the us to drop the charges and for a songy to be freed hard to believe. but it looks real. every serious press freedom group in the world has protested this. it is an appalling symbol of how far the british and american government's commitment to human rights has declined. anyone
in this country who cares about freedom of expression should be deeply ashamed that the home secretary has approved. the extradition of julian assange to the united states, the country that plotted his assassination. a sanchez legal case has been going on for years in 2019 is asylum was revoked in the ecuadorian embassy in london. he was arrested by you k authorities and sent to the bell marsh, maximum security prison in 2020 extradition hearings began. and a year later, the presiding judge concluded, it would be oppressive to extradite cassandra to the u. s. due to his health, but that decision was overturned, less than a year later when a london high court agreed with us to extradite now in 2022, a london court has issued an official extradition order followed by the u. k. home office, confirming it on friday morning, sanchez, facing 175 years in the u. s. prison for revealing america's dirtiest secrets were given. published classified information about the iraq and afghan wars revealed
video of the us soldiers indiscriminately slaying civilians, and proves torture and prisoner deaths due to the miss treatment at guantanamo bay prison. camp and exposed pro clinton media bias and scheme to push bernie sanders out of the presidential race. we spoke to raymond l. mcgovern, a former cia officer who sees us august expedition is a requiem for independent journalism. this is the broader problem here. if people in the united states think they can use the espionage act of 1917, my andrew against german spies to pursue capture and put in prison for the rest of the day. a lives journalist, whether they be australians or euro, why ends or ice lands, or if they live in antartica or in the arctic, we can get you because we're the united states and we have this law that we can
apply to. anyone doesn't have to be american citizen. so you know, how dangerous is that? how, how damage will that be when somebody wants to write next time. some cables are trying to get them released. in addition, of course, you have a surveillance system imposed now not only in the united states, but in the u. k. and other places where it's sort of quite a trick to get such as sensitive material to where it can be posted anonymously. that's part of the problem as well. so independent journalism, let's compose a requiem for it because it's, it's, it's mostly de does it from this are back in, let's say 29 minutes is another full, fresh look at your new students are to international. oh, the.
