12:02 am
published on forces alongside russian soldiers are advancing on the city where up to $7000.00 ukrainian prices are believed to be located, there are reportedly cuts off from suppliers coming from ukraine controlled territory. and luc guns, ministry officials claim they'll soon have the whole republic under their control. our correspondent eagerness, done a report from the from line this little village, just outside of the city of several. the next is strategically crucial for the russian forces. basically, this is one of the main directions from where they are closing in the encirclement, the so called cattle around the ukranian forces in the town of lucy chanced on top of that. now that this place is under the control of the russians, what they did, they basically kicked out the enemy artillery from here because this place is a great vantage point overlooking the town of several minutes. it
12:03 am
measured it, but we got that boom. we started to move from house to house and we're meeting fierce resistance. we drove the ukrainians out the nearest houses after a 2 day battle road. after that, they moved to the other side of the street and held that position. but our forces started to get around them from the left and right flanks. we moved along and started to direct our artillery as they had trenches over there while we started to defeat them and move further along. and a little further, a group of around 15 or 20 ukrainian soldiers engaged us with polish mortars, and we saw them in time as the loo, ganske forces were operating there and had warned us about the enemy, we decided to face the enemy from that position in that house where we saw them, but they didn't see us. we got around them from the right and a fierce shoot out started, which lasted for 2 hours. then they directed artillery on us to help their troops to get out. and you saw our soldiers had to move a bit and we left within 2 days,
12:04 am
we stormed the position again and drove the enemy out from there. ah, they said, you know, i think we're, the ukrainian soldiers executed our neighbors. he had been in the basement with us, but when the battle started, we went home for water and they went across the road to get things from their house . and then we heard shots, they didn't come back for days and it was too dangerous to go and check on them while the battle was going on. later when we went over to find them and we saw their dead bodies, ukrainian soldiers had shot them at point blank range. they clearly saw that they were civilians and they shot the man in the head and his wife in the back. ah.
12:05 am
as the boys joke here, thanks for the ukrainian forces for providing extra weapons and munition for their little unit for made weapons as well, like these rocket launchers. this is the infamous british made and law smaller one . this is polish, made another one. this is so get made and yet a another piece with all the instructions on it written in english. all these items are being successfully used against, well now against the ukrainian forces on this direction. a task for generations. thus, an idea of how much money the west should spend to help care of rebuild after the war. last, according to german chancellor, la shalt be damaged the 6th of just like water in europe. then ukraine today needs a marshal plan for his rebuilding the e. you has mobilized billions of dollars of funds in the last $100.00 days to help you crane. but we will need many more billions of yours and dollars for rebuilding
12:06 am
. it will be a task for generations. green says, is received around $30000000000.00 in foreign aid since the beginning of the war with one 3rd of the funds being non b payable. that's the, the u. s. is reportedly spends more than $54000000000.00 on a ukraine, while the e. u is finalizing another financial package secure with $9500000000.00. let's go commentator and radio host, steve gill says that raises questions about what credit is actually spending the money on. well, i think 1st of all, we should get a full accounting of what's been spent, where it's gone year before this all started, ukraine was known as one of the most corrupt countries in the world. and i kind of feel like if the ukrainians or say they've gotten 30 in total, i feel little bit like when i would give my teenage sons at the time 20 bucks on a friday and saturday morning. they're asking me for more money. my 1st question is, what did you do with the money boys? so the 5455000000000 the u. s. isn't ukraine? where's the money gone? if they only have $30.00?
12:07 am
and we don't know the 2nd day of the 14th break summits, which is a meeting of the world's biggest emerging economies, is to kick off today friday at the start of the session. the leaders of the 5 nations expressed solidarity on the economy and security issues. and despite the terms by some western states to drive a wedge between them, we are glad to know that despite challenges briggs, countries in 2022 have jointly continued at hansing, solidarity and deepening cooperation on the economy. peace and security. people to people exchanges public health and sustainable development. we reiterate the call for reforms of the principal organs of the united nations. china and russia reiterated the importance they attached to the status and role of brazil, indian south africa in international affairs, and supported their aspiration to play a greater role in the un, brazil, russia, india, china, and south africa, which the 5 members of the brakes group. so parts in 2 days, virtual summit and just to put some figures into perspective, the total population of the group exceed $3000000000.00 people,
12:08 am
which is over 40 percent of the world's population. the gross domestic product of the big group is $23.00 trillion dollars. with the countries trade show coverage over 20 percent of the global markets on experts expect this number to rise. 37 percent within the next 8 years now will exceed the total share of the u. s. and e . u in international trade. rarely at my colleague unit, o'neill and ortiz, will depart host us on a breaker discourse. what's on the agenda of this year's summit? originally this organization was created as this loose economics trade alliance, no strings attached. the idea was to kick stars, trade and economic corporation among those large economies. and i think increasingly it's taking on them more political tone. it's not very express at this point, but you already can read between the lines. and i think the best way i can summarize it is that if the west particular the united states sees the current station in the
12:09 am
world as sort of a clash that make the central battle that's been the talk receives and democracy for many of the bricks leaders if not for all, it's about practical governance versus political or i would even say part isn't maneuvering because there is a clear sense in many of their statements that they want. they want to focus on practical matters of how to improve the lives of the people in this very difficult situation. we have, you know, run away inflation all over the world, shortages of food and fuel supplies, etc. and in put in statement and she didn't think statements, we see that stress on actual work rather than ideological slogans. that's the main beef with the west that the western politics has become a way to populists, not on the mass level, but on the leap level. it's all about slogans and very little about practical
12:10 am
matters of people's lives. it's been going through for over a decade now. the bricks, the brick for a month. how effective though, has it actually been over the years and how crucial is it in today's economy? well, it's difficult to say, you know, because i think we can clearly say that that potential hasn't been fully realized. even economically, even though, for example, if you look at the figures, russia's tre turnover bricks, countries has increased 38 percent in the 1st 3 months of this year despite all the sanctions. but i think many of the analysts within those countries believe that there are many more signatures that haven't been fully explored than that trying to do it now and not out of spice against the west, but out of a cannot make necessity. and there is a lot of talk about strengthening economic corporation, finding new ways of accounts settlements. there's even talk of perhaps some sort of a joint currency. again, not because of some ideological and 10 merican or anti repeat reason. but simply
12:11 am
because macroeconomic station in the world is very, very difficult. that would be huge goodness, because the, the greenback dollar is, is the currency. so if you've got something that's backed up by major economies that could challenge the gemini couldn't well, i think the, the united states itself is challenging. it's a gemini, and many of the leaders stated that already on various occasions in just the last few years, the money supply, they supply mass of the us dollar has increased roughly by 40 percent and with the euro, it's roughly by 20 percent. and obviously some of that burden is put on the developing countries. that's the major factor that's fueling the inflation. now even putting it aside, rushes own problems with the sanctions and being able to carry out those transactions . but it's a major financial liability and that's why they're talking about finding a way to secure the economies and do it in the mutually beneficial way. and there's
12:12 am
even talk about perhaps expanding it a bit further. just the other day, the argentine as analog to china on the from this some it said that they're genuine, is also looking forward to joining this alliance. simply because cooperation there is mutually agreeable and it comes with no strings attached. you don't have to fulfill any political geopolitical obligations. in the news, the taliban authorities, enough gun is done, are appealing for international helped us following this week's devastating earthquake the left at least 1000 people that the earthquake in south east enough gone, is done with the deadliest in decades destroying over 1500 homes that's according to local authorities. rescue operations are ongoing with humanitarian aid. medical support been delivered by helicopter to the affected areas. us secretary of state, anthony blink and earlier said that medical aid will be provided to afghanistan, which was immediately called out by suing beijing. meanwhile, the un, china's ambassador has demanded the u. s. returns off guns overseas assets. it is
12:13 am
unreasonable, unjustified, and unacceptable to freeze the afghan assets. the u. s. should respond to the appeals of the secretary general human rights experts, humanitarian agencies and other policies by unconditionally returning african overseas assets as soon as possible. so, $7000000000.00 in afghan central bank assets were frozen by the us. that's after the taliban took control of the country last august. the us president signed an order back in february to release those assets. but the money is supposed to be divided between $2.00 monitoring groups, enough going to done on a fund for $911.00 victims former off gun president. i mean, cause i how's demanded the u. s. returns the money back to the african people. i've gone journalists below. so worry, says the u. s. does not have the right to take the money away from the people. the life states can simply not rob the african people at the civil $1000000000.00 and say we're giving it to the victims of the $911.00 victims. you know,
12:14 am
i mean it's also important that people like myself, lost all of my savings money that i have trusted banks. and so it is incredibly important to clarify that the people put the money, the money belongs to people who understand to businesses. you know, it is actually quite cruel to just basically punish the african people for it. i mean, they live states in many ways because of the exit deal that they had with the americans contributed in some ways to the fall off on to the pallet by the law. and it is important to mention the afghan people continue to demand the united states release those funds as soon as possible. there's also people in the west including former senior u. s. and western officials who continue to advocate and i want to sign is a country where millions of people face the risk of mass starvation. if it's not,
12:15 am
the bombs is suicide, it's actually a lot. it's such natural disasters. and the truth is that the bomb are not equipped, they're not able to help the victims. if there is a time, it will be right now to release those files because they belong to the people of afghanistan. and that alone could actually provide some oxygen into the economy, which is in common at the moment. you s congresswoman ill on oma has introduced a resolution designating india, quote, a country of particular concern as for a legit religious freedom violations, a claim which due deli, has repeatedly denied as biased. the indian government escalated its promotion and enforcement of policies, including those promoting the hindu nationalist agenda that negatively affect muslims. christians seeks dallas and other religious minorities. now that may have, does not necessarily mean that the resolution will be adopted. india has repeatedly
12:16 am
criticized what its views of the terms interference point, and the legend bias of the u. s. reports and in informed comments. that's what it says earlier. new delhi ministry of external affairs spokesman condemned congress when omar for interfering and india's internal affairs of her visits. the disputed indian territory of cashmere relations between the 2 countries have begun to notice to be deteriorates. the u. s. has criticized india democracy and it comes as recent attempts from washington to drive a wedge between new delhi and moscow have failed with india remaining firm on its dance of cooperation with russia. we discussed the india us relationship with the foreign affairs experts unable to go nigh it who thinks it's part of a concerted efforts undermine indian autonomy. i really, really feel that this is a motivated campaign. and secondly, i also really that you know, many people and then i get paid for the western. what i'm happy with india as
12:17 am
it started to allow me an independent warrant. so therefore, we tried to use the human rights scandal, essentially, to target a country like india. india is the 2nd largest nation, and the bigger one of the biggest markets. it is the fastest growing what i mean, even the randomly. and it's a market which everybody isaac and i think the states also we have a global company that has started the partnership. european leaders have voted to grants ukraine candidate status to join the enough, despite is damaged economy. the book itself faces the economic issues. some politicians say the move is more, a symbolic gesture. artesia davinsky has more. it's a slam dunk for ukraine,
12:18 am
or is it despite the jubilation over to new candidate for membership status? the likelihood of that becoming a reality is at the moment pretty far fetched something one. the leader was keen to point out from this number. granted you candidate status to ukraine is a symbolic decision. accession to the blog will require huge reforms and time. the word symbolic is hugely important. here as on paper, ukraine far from meets many of the requirements to become a member of the block. well, the e u is doing by offering not just ukraine, but also more over this next step is essentially using them to try and stick it to president putin. that's not been lost in translation. it is a signal to moscow that ukraine and also other countries from the former soviet union cannot belong to the russian sphere of influence. but he is the crux, while many will be jumping for joy over this news,
12:19 am
they are soon likely to come back to earth with a big bump. ukraine has issues, big economic issues. the war has provoked. many of them it can't be ignored. the parts of the country will have to be rebuilt from scratch, and that is going to cost a lot of money. early estimates from the u. n. suggest some $600000000000.00 with a price tag going up every day that you has already a marked recovery funds. we stand ready to take a leading role in the international reconstruction efforts to help rebuild a democratic and prosperous ukraine. this means investments will go hand in hand with reforms that will support ukraine and pursuing its european path. sounds like they've got it all in hand and maybe they would have if you're a pin countries, we're also not struggling with their own economies. think greece, for example, it's long had problems after it emerged to cook the books to join the euro in the 1st place,
12:20 am
injection off during jackson of cash hasn't appeared to have worked now as economies across the e, you struggle with the impact to inflation. greece is once more falling into the basket case status to see me again. what has changed is that we have seen the price of fuel has gone up and the invoices from the electricity companies are a great shock for everyone. i would say that people are afraid of the crisis in my restaurant business is definitely down compared to last year with the stress that we have is huge. we're anxious, anticipating what will come, that we are struggling everyday. so we can fill in the gaps. generally things that difficult and i don't see things changing because prices keep going up. i asked the in the courses of everything, just keep coming now while i'm wages have dropped so we don't have one. now the choice but to work 2 jobs average a process keep going up a very difficult. we don't even use all calls. we also motor bikes because they burn less fuel. we avoid going out, or just a coffee at most great,
12:21 am
have seen protests over the rising costs of living, and it's not alone in the you. the given the situation in ukraine, the e was like, you have to spend a lot of money over the next decade or so in a bit to try and revive its economy. can i do that at the same time as looking off to its current men, but whoops. and now the e, you could also have to contend with the disillusionment of countries in the west. and vulcans who will ready spent many years waiting to join the block. if countries that aspire to join the e u face delays, they will reorient their policies and then we will have an increase of russian and chinese influence in the western vulcan's candidate status seemed like a giant link for ukraine. the next 1 may be insurmountable. i don't think that
12:22 am
realism enters into any of the calculations here. we're talking about a symbolic statement. we're talking about the demonstration by the commission and by worst look for the land in particular. but if you, if you apply massive force and coercion, you can get 27 member states to say that one and one is 4. it doesn't make one and 14, but it does get to create your illusion of solidarity and it, and it enhanced is the principle that motivates you today, which is strength and unity. the question of whether that strength is in confirm confirming and implementing absolutely stupid policies is not discussed. 3 subsidiaries of commodity traded glank or have pleaded guilty of bribery related to its oil operations in several african countries. u. k. serious fraud office,
12:23 am

12:24 am
we spoke with nigerian former presidential candidates adama guard by the 2nd. and he thinks this shows a pattern of behavior by global enterprises in africa. up his lunch is not actually surprising to me, because if you look at what glen court be really nafrica on, so many of this kind of for middle global enterprise, a is a splitter to. so some of them take advantage of the cases that we have in africa to be able to make nonprofits. colonialism might be out in terms of, i even the session with the economy. colonialism, students continued in africa, and i knew something that i need to very seriously view in this kind of kind of go clinical or be an open company, this company. what about this type of africa? what about damages that you don't talk on to a citizen of discourse practices? who is going to be responsible for the composition do courtrooms or to where they
12:25 am
are going to me? yeah, we're just, we're just kind of indictment. euro has no more outstanding to begin to quote africans as grossly corrupt. in fact, nearby we are taught to be called by the corruption of the corporation. the doc wanted to know environment. i'm is literally this was someone trying to say that it is a good thing to be caught off. what i'm trying to say is that a situation whereby i'm africa and this grow and you've got to be caught up, you should be doing or wanting to know similar to the way we should do it every 4 pm, our pm on those who does come up to be caught up so that there can be no you because you're the ones that know the financial crisis rages with foreign exchange reserves rapidly depletes in, in pakistan. the countries finance ministers as a significant loan from china has been confirmed. the chinese consortium of banks has today signed about $2300000000.00 loan facility agreement after it was signed
12:26 am
by pakistani side. yesterday. inflow is expected within a couple of days. the transaction comes in, china continues to gain influence in the country and develops the china packets done economic corridor, which is the business flagship project, part of the larger chinese belton road initiative. geopolitical analyst shows are. the boss says that china, mainly invest in the countries energy and infrastructure facilities, unimproved the economy, or previous us finance the bowl for pakistan only exacerbated the financial crisis . i would listen to your department, i'm sorry for the america has been a struggle with the board and management and warning and ship both on in america closer. and the money was coming from america like the 1st month for the development exposure to support electric and water. but in general, the chinese like project, like $60000000000.00 completed to get in that just what i want to say. i don't want to table up like the industries selecting party like it's one. so it's not me going
12:27 am
to my son. so john are trying to get like when it comes to the 2nd son. but unfortunately, like the american money to be interested in the form of a position for the funds are like they're not helping them that's making and more present because my clinic actually run for like a political never, never. and like many other issue like when it comes to the maintenance of the money, the maintenance of the month before the funk. so the money which has been some folks from america since this one has been like 50 people running before sunday just matters more. and when did that? i'm a well, that's how the was looking at 7 30 am moscow time. i'm pizza scott's on the back again with another look at today's biggest stories in about half an hour's time. ah.
12:28 am
any meaningful relationship is based on the following trust. this is absent in russia's relationship with the west of essentially, moscow does not being western leaders to be good faith actors. this is the lesson learned since the end of the cold war. as we all know, raining, trust is very difficult, if not impossible, with ah, church's goal was to preserve the british empire. the united states wanted an open world in which american dollar could penetrate, which american trade would have access everywhere,
12:29 am
and to markets and to labor add to resources around the globe. so they had very different kinds of conflict. the interest with john chill wound stolen of an impending attack on the ussr in the face of great danger. he seeks an alliance with russia. stalin doesn't reply. he doesn't trust churchill. with at 4 o'clock this morning, hitler attacked and invaded russia. suddenly, without declaration, the war without even algae made him. the german bomb rain down from the
12:30 am
guy a been the russian. that is russian danger is therefore our danger and the danger of the united state school. 2 days later us, president roosevelt also gives a speech supporting the ussr. but there are other political forces in the united states. i returned makes his speech in december of 41. and the senate is as if the russians are when we should support the germans. and if the germans are, when we support the russians and that way, let them destroy each other. there was that sets of it in the west at this time dangerous destructive, roosevelt wound stall in of japan's intention to attack the soviet union. but soviet intelligence for point state the via tank is still in doubt.
