1:01 am
your life from our headquarters here in moscow watching our scenes national one minute past 8 am in the russian capsule. my name is peter scott. i'm ready trinity from welcome to the program. we started out with the latest on the war in ukraine, and danielle, one person has been killed and 3 more injured. after shelling of the city censored by the ukranian army with artillery and rockets, intelligence center in the city was hit in the attack. according to local reports, equipment was damaged, but no casualties were reported among the stuff and the little guns people's republic, the ukrainian military last around 150 troops with some 450 injured over 2 days. according to the russian defense ministry officials added nearly $1500.00 explosives were cleared in the area over 24 hours. and let's not take a look at what's happening on the outskirts of the city of little chance. can little guns, people's republic, where fist fighting discontinue the public's armed forces alongside russian
1:02 am
soldiers are advancing on the city. well, to 7000 ukrainian fighters are believed to be located there reported to be cut off from supplies coming from ukrainian control the territory. and the guns community officials claim they'll soon of the whole of a big under their control. while correspondence eager is done of census this report from the front line, this little village just outside of the city of several minutes, 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. little to me. hold on because i
1:03 am
didn't get roger, 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 with roy. 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 in move further along and a little further. a group of around 15 or 20 ukrainian soldiers engaged us with polish mortar, such as we saw them in time as the lugens forces were operating there and had warned us about the enemy. but not we decided to face the enemy from that position in that house more. we saw them, but they didn't see us. we got around them from the right and a fear shoot out started, which lasted for 2 hours. then they directed artillery on us to help their troops to get out in him. so our soldiers had to move a bit and we left within, within 2 days, we stormed the position again and drove the enemy out from there to. ah
1:04 am
so did you not think were the ukrainian soldiers executed our neighbors? he had been in the basement with us, but when the battle started, we went for water and they went across the road to get things from their houses. and then we heard sharp as they didn't come back for days. it was too dangerous to go and check on them while the battle was going on to the leader. when we went over to find them, then we saw their dead bodies that 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. with
1:05 am
one as the boys joke here, thanks for the ukrainian forces for providing extra weapons and ammunition 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 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. as fighting continues, russian armed forces had delivered new packages of humanitarian aid to the done yet, and peoples lugens people's republics. as well as his upper region, which is under russian control. moscow says it has delivered more than $180.00 tons of supplies to civilians with russia planning to significantly increase aid shipments to $40000.00 tons, which are now being prepared for the regions. ah,
1:06 am
the 2nd day of the 14th break summit, which is a meeting of the world's biggest emerging economies, is to kick off on friday to day at the start of the session. the leaders of the 5 nations expressed solidarity on the economy and security issues. and this, despite attempts by some western states to drive a wedge between them. we are glad to note that despite challenges, bricks, 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. the 5 members of the bricks group. so taking part in the 2 day virtual summit and to pull some of those figures into perspective, the total population of the group exceeds $3000000000.00 people,
1:07 am
which is over 40 percent of the world's population. and the gross domestic product of the bricks group is $23.00 and a half trillion dollars. with the countries trade share covering over 20 percent of the global markets. and experts now expect this number to rise to 37 percent over the next 8 years. that will exceed the total share of the u. s. and e u and international trade. well, earlier my colleague, unit o'neill and r c's, well, it's a parts host on a boy co discussed what's on the agenda of this year's summit. originally this organization was created as this, lucy cannot make trade alliance, no strings attached. the idea was to kick start 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 situation in
1:08 am
the world as sort of a clash of the central battle that's been the talk receives and democracy for many of the bricks leaders. it's not for all it's about practical governance versus political or i would have been 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, ran 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 populist not on the mass level, but on the leap level. it's all about slogans and very little about practical
1:09 am
matters of people's lives. it's been going through for over a decade now. the bricks, the brick, 4 months. 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 idea logical and 10 merican or anti repeat reason. but simply
1:10 am
because macroeconomic station in the world is very, very difficult to 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 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
1:11 am
even talk about perhaps expanding it a bit further. just the other day, the argentine as analog to china on the for 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. earlier we spoke to a former indian diplomats who told us what new delhi expects from the bricks partnership. when he sees as a groups recipes for success. of course, we would like to be greater cooperation as prime minister movie has said that, that have mean, you know, certain area or the last 14 years that the leaders have been some progress in a different large number of areas. speech, you know, about the new development bagley, know about the currency, those new development bang, the membership is increasing slight things outreach of this financial institution
1:12 am
that is growing. so there are possibilities. and while you know, a number of the other international organizations have not been able to do, even as much as bricks has been able to do, at least breaks, are we able to move every year. and you know, the summit started taking place in 2009. they see value, they see merit in this organization. that is why they're willing to invest that much of time for energy into coming together. the task for generations. that's an idea, just how much money the west should spend to help keep rebuild after the war. according to german chancellor la sholtes, when the damage to just like water in europe, then ukraine today needs the marshall plan for rebuilding. the e. u has mobilized billions of dollars of funds in the last $100.00 days to help
1:13 am
you. crane will be we will need many more billions of years and dollars for rebuilding will be a topic for generation dollar for the off of the ukraine says it's received around $30000000000.00 in foreign aid since the beginning of the war with up to one 3rd of the funds being unrepairable. thus, as the u. s. has reportedly spent more than $54000000000.00 on a ukraine, while the e. u is finalizing another financial package to keep up with $9500000000.00. that's the goal commentator and radio. how steve gill says that raises questions about what exactly ukraine is 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 it's the ukrainian to say they've gotten 30 in total. i feel a 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 boy? so the 5455000000000 the us sent to ukraine. where's the money gone if they only
1:14 am
have $30.00? meanwhile, european leaders have both at the grungy green candidate status to join the north despite its economic woes of the book itself face the severe economic issues. belgian says the move is more of a symbolic gesture. this is to let, granted you, candidate status to ukraine is a symbolic decision session to the blogger will require huge reforms and time. the word symbolic is hugely important. here, as on paper, ukraine, far for meats. many of the requirements to become a member of the block, while the e u is doing by offering not just ukraine, but also mal, do 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 here's the crux, while many will be jumping for joy over this news,
1:15 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. the e u 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 are a pin countries, we're also not struggling with their own economies. think greece, for example, it's long had problems after it emerged in the cook,
1:16 am
the books to join the euro in the 1st place, injection after injection of cash hasn't appeared to have worked. now, as economies across the you struggle with the impact to inflation. greece is once more falling into basket case status. to see me. 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 as mother in my restaurant. business is definitely down compared to last year's. we're still dollars. it wasn't the rest that we have is huge. we're anxious, anticipating what will come now going on. we are struggling every day so we can fill in the gap. we generally things are difficult and i don't see things changing because of high says he going on. i ask, see, any guy says, i presume disc kit go now while i'm waiting have dropped to wait on half an hour and a choice but to work 2 jobs every day. crosses, keep coming up. e after work. very difficult for we don't even use our cars, we offer motor bikes because they burn less fuel. they, we avoid going out or just
1:17 am
a coffee at most greece has seen protests over the rising costs of living and it's not alone in the u. ah. even the situation in ukraine, the e was likely to have to spend a lot of money over the next decade or so in a bid to try and revive its economy. can it do that at the same time as looking after its current member? whoa is, and now the you could also have to contend with the disillusionment of countries in the western vulcans who will ready spent many years waiting to join the block. if countries that aspire to join the you face delays, they will reorient their policies and then we will have an increase of russian and chinese influence in the western vulcans. candidate status seemed like an giant
1:18 am
leap for ukraine. the next one, maybe insurmountable. i don't think that realism doesn't do any of the calculations here. we're talking about a symbolic statement. we're talking about a demonstration. why 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 members suits to say that one and one is for it doesn't make one and one for. but it does get to create the illusion of solidarity and it, and it enhances 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. and moving on to other news now, the taliban authority is enough. gone, is done. are appealing for international help that's following this week's
1:19 am
devastating earthquake. the less at least $1000.00 people dead. the earthquake in south eastern afghanistan was the deadliest in decades destroying over 1500 homes according to local authorities. rescue operations are ongoing with humanitarian aid, on medical support being delivered by helicopter to the affected areas. us extra state anti bank, and earliest said that medical aid will be provided to afghanistan. meanwhile, of the un chinese ambassador dem, under the u. s. returns afghanistan's overseas assets. immediately it is unreasonable, unjustified, and unacceptable to freeze the afghan assets. yet on the u. s. should respond to the appeals of the secretary general human rights expert is on humanitarian agencies and other policies by on conditionally returning african overseas assets. as soon as possible, we show you 7000000000 dollars in afghan central bank assets were frozen by the us, us to the taliban for control of the country. last august, us president signed an order back in february to release the assets over the money
1:20 am
is supposed to be divided between your monetary groups in african is done, and a phone for $911.00 victims former off gun president. i mean, because i has demanded that the u. s. returns the money back to the afghan people. but i've gone journalist below thought, worry says the u. s. does not have the right to take money away from the african people. the united states can simply not rob the african people over $70000000000.00 and say we're giving it to the victims of the $911.00 victims. you know, i mean it's also important that people like myself, lost all of my savings money that i have trusted banks with. so it is incredibly important to clarify the people putting the money. the money belongs to people who understand to businesses. you know, it is actually quite cruel to just basically a bunch of african people for it. i mean, they live states in many ways because of the exit in that they had to where the
1:21 am
americans contributed. and some ways to the fall off of one, the taller body alone. and it is important to mention that 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, the bombs is suicide, it's actually a lot it's, it's such natural disasters. and the truth is that the dollar 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 finals because they belong to the people on a stand. and that alone could actually provide some oxygen into the economy which isn't comma demo us congresswoman l hahn. omar has introduced
1:22 am
a resolution designate in india, a quote, country of particular concern, that's very legit religious freedom violations as a claim which new delhi 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 not be it does not necessarily mean that the resolution will be adopted. india has repeatedly criticized wanted views of the times, interference pointing to the legit bias of the u. s. reports and ill informed comments that's according to india. earlier new delia ministry of external affairs spokesman condemned congress one omar for interfering in india's internal affairs of her visits. the disputed indian territory of kashmir relations between the 2 countries have begun to noticeable, deteriorates us has criticized induced democracy. and this comes as recent attempts from washington to drive
1:23 am
a wedge between new delhi and moscow. have failed with india remaining firm in its dance of cooperation with russia. but we discuss the india u. s. relationship with the foreign affairs experts and ill trigger ny 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 created that, you know, many people and then i get paid for the western. what i'm happy with india as it can give me an independent 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 for me, even the randomly. and it's a market which everybody,
1:24 am
i that and i did the states also we have a global comprehensive, has started the partnership, 3 subsidiaries of the commodity trader, glank, or have pleaded guilty to bribery related to its oil operations in several african countries. u. k series fraud office, which brought charges against the companies that assessment hearing will take place in november. the s f o's investigation exposed that glen core via its employees and agents, paid bribes of over $28000000.00 for preferential access to oil, including increased cargoes valuable grades of oil, and preferable delivery dates. these actions were approved by the company across its oil operations in nigeria, cameroon ivory coast, equitorial guinea and south sudan blanket energy officials said it expects to pay up to $1500000000.00 to settle allegations or bribery and markets negotiation. this subsidiaries in the u. s. brazil on you k, have pleaded guilty to felony charges in a little court hearing on tuesday,
1:25 am
the company admitted it paid more than $28000000.00 in bribes to secure preferential access to oil from africa, making illegal profits between 20112016. further investigations into the companies alleged violations are currently being conducted by dutch unsworn or authorities. we spoke a form and i did no jury and presidential candidates adama gobber the 2nd you think this shows a pattern of behavior by global enterprises in africa. up is not, it's not actually surprising to me. so because if you look at what glen cora, be really nafrica on. so many of this kind of for mitchell global integrates a is a splitter to. so some of them to advantage of the crises that we have in africa to be able to make nonprofits. colonialism might be out in terms of what even the session with the economy colonialism, students continued in africa. and i knew something that i need to very seriously
1:26 am
view in this kind of kind of go clinical won't be an a opium company company. but what about just took up africa? what about damage is that is done to continue to listen to discourse practices. who is going to be responsible for the composition dakota from the to where they are going to me. yeah, we're just, we're just kind of indictment. euro has no more outstanding to begin to get caught africans as grossly corrupt. in fact, maybe we are taught to be called by the corrosion of the corporation that up to my environment, it was with something to say that it is a routing to be put off. what i'm trying to see with the situation, why i'm africa and his grow, and you've got to be caught up, you should be doing or wanting to know similar to the way who should do with every 4 of your might up your mind. no one who does come up to be caught up. sort of there can be no you because you're the ones that know. that's how the world is

a with hello and welcome to cross hoc we're all things are considered. i'm peter labelle. any meaningful relationship is based on the following trust. this is absent in russia's relationship with the west. essentially, moscow does not deem western leaders to be good faith actors. this is the lesson
1:30 am
learned since the end of the cold war. as we all know, regaining trust is very difficult, if not impossible. ah, crow sucking russia relations with the west. i'm joined by my guess, garland nixon in washington. he is a political analyst in new york. we have, daniel was our, he is a journalist and author of 3 books on the us constitution. and in philadelphia we cross the bruce marx. he is a former pennsylvania state senator and attorney for donald trump's 20162020 campaigns are gentlemen cross our rules and effects. that means you can jump in anytime you want. and i always appreciated, daniel, let me go to you 1st in new york. there is no trust left here. okay. and if you look at western media, particularly american media and british media were basically in a state of war, which of course one has not been declared, but they've made themselves cobra.
