benefit from a world economy in transition a with turkey agrees to admit finland and sweden to nato lifting its opposition and the green lighting blocks enlargement something russia considers a red line. the blades out of ukrainian shopping mall sparks debates at an emergency meeting of the un security council with key framing moscow targeted the building. russia meanwhile, assures that the center caught fire after it targeted a ukrainian ammunition stockpile nearby. with
10:01 pm
that news for joe biden with the french president revealing that some arab states will not be able to pump enough extra oil to help western countries with kathy lot of direct from our studios in moscow. this is our international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us. now turkey has agreed to lift opposition to sweden and finland joining nato. the 3 countries leaders signed a trilateral deal in which turkey green lights, the admission in return for assurances finland and sweden will stop support for critic forces contract considered to be terrorists. now, the nato chief marked the breakthrough as a big step to further confine russia and didn't miss a chance to poke moscow. all prison today is getting more needle on these borders.
10:02 pm
so what he gets is the opposite or what he actually the mom and uncles to need to, to cross it source. we are demonstrating natal stores, are they the stories or join the live in the studio by our corresponded charlotte basically. charlotte, this is a big step. i mean, really big for the bar considering it's, goes against one of russia's biggest red lines. i mean, has there been any global reaction to this roof? yes, a has been, of course, we're still waiting for the reaction from russia. what's interesting about this is it means that we are likely to see a further increasing of need to moving eastwards. it's something that is done since 1949. if you look at the map pe, you will see how it's been expanding, particularly during the post cold war area where it ended up allowing countries to join, which saw the colon grad, the enclave of russia. that was surrounded then by nato countries. then steadily moving up to the baltic nations, which meant that it was right at russia's order. this idea that fin and in
10:03 pm
particular could now join nato would mean that some 1300 kilometers of board that finland shares with russia would mean that essentially nato is absolutely on russia's doorstep. there is no, nothing to a question about in regards to this. moscow's consistently said, it sees this as being a red line. it sees this has been an aggressive move, and it's certainly likely that we will get something to that tune coming from the kremlin later today. now it really does sound when you hear the nature section general talk that as if they kind of egging on the crime, the new look what we're doing, we are saying whoever wants to join us can join us and we will do just that. so that is likely to provoke some reaction to and russia is not the only one that has concern about this continued expansion of nato, china to as it concerns china based close attention to nato's
10:04 pm
adjustment to his strategic concepts. and his deeper concerns about his policies implications. we urge nato to learn his lessons and not to use the crisis in ukraine as an excuse to escalate worldwide confrontation or to create a new cold war. now, nato has consistently said this is about strengthening its alliance that some might be questioning at what cost is it doing that or so, or turkey. they've had a very important role to play in, allowing sweden and finland to get to this point. so i to, they were basically had their, the mixon concessions these countries, but specifically about these critic groups. tell me about those groups and why it does turkey really haven't thought in their side for. that's why i mean turkey has made a huge u turn when it comes to allowing finland and sweden to join the nato alliance. we've heard, for the last few months from president erred one of turkey,
10:05 pm
that this will not happen, that they were not happy about sweden and finland for many issues, particularly over these groups that turkey sees as being terror groups. now as part of this memorandum, this has been signed by the 3 countries, sweden and finland say that they owe repeat that they recognize the p k. k as being a terrorist organization. this is a kurdish group that has been fighting for independence in the southeast of turkey at for the last few decades. they've also said that they will not be supporting the y p g in the p y d in future. then this is interesting because these are kurdish groups that normally operate in the north of syria. that, of course tensions in the past between the u. s. franks and turkey because turkeys alleged that the us and france said not just only supported them with trading, but of also given the weapons. so that's an interesting development and sweden and finland have said that they're now going to re look at any requests for extradition of groups that turkey sees as being terrorist individuals or aligned with those
10:06 pm
groups. and what you're really going to get from this is that turkey is pretty much got everything. it said that it won't, it over the last few months at kurdish groups are properly feeling pretty betrayed at by this signature of this miranda, particularly by turkey. this be a, by as wheaton, which has been accused of sort of aiding it in the past at the final plan hasn't been laid out yet. of course, we'll get that all the summit and we are waiting for that reaction from russia. but what's really interesting is that for the past few months, nato's consistently said that what it wants to do is to keep below, on the ukraine crisis, the war and ukraine, making sure that it doesn't spill over from its borders. russia's may see this is being the complete opposite of that by now essentially green lighting, the accession of finland and sweden. this is a very important moment. we know that there's going to be a lot of follow up, that's for sure,
10:07 pm
and you'll see process for us as the story develop. thanks for that shows you are now. he spoke to kennestone from the hamilton nicole ocean to stop the war movement . who believes that nato enlargement brings us closer to the unthinkable. i expect that russia will continue to say what has been saying all along that nato should roll back its expansion towards russia. and we have to understand from the russian point of view and from our point of view, even in here in canada, nato is an aggressive military alliance. and nato is responsible for dismembering the yugoslavian federation. nato is responsible for 20 years of horrible war. and i've janice that is responsible for the destruction of libya and it's turning it into a failed state. so it becomes, it brings us closer and closer to a, to the unthinkable. because nato has a 1st strike policy. it has a nuclear policy,
10:08 pm
and it's in the process of planting missile systems, aggressive missile systems and armaments in countries in eastern europe, which threatened russia. and the russians know that the game plan as we have seen in ukraine, is to turn all these countries into nato. countries with the intention of bringing natal right up to the russian border and doing to russia what it did to the u. s. lobby in federation. let's go onto the latest on the war in ukraine. a child has been killed and 3 people injured and ukrainian forces showing of no via ca, kafka, that is according to cares on authorities who say that of the for touch go you. missiles fired 3 were intercepted by russian air defenses. and ukrainian forces are also reported to have a shell that you've seen of our time in the done yet, the people's republic, according to authorities 10 grand the rockets were fired at the city and the village of nova will taco and god love the city and its suburbs were also targeted
10:09 pm
. meanwhile, in lugens authority, se ukrainian forces opened fire on the city of brianca, where several residential buildings and a power line were damaged. they claim that the incident was the 1st time she had used the u. s. donated hi mars m l r. i s in the region. meanwhile, he did debate at the un security council meeting where western diplomats are focusing on exactly what happened at a shopping mall on territory under ukraine's control key of claims. at least 18 people died thereafter, a russian missile strike. while moscow says it did not target the facility, now rushes defense ministry has said that the building caught fire after ammunition stockpiled by ukraine's military. just 70 meters away exploded after the russian strike. but ukrainian officials claim the moscow intended to target the mall. a russian representative to the un has related moscow's position to the council.
10:10 pm
dishes there wouldn't deleon your b? i'm sorry, shopping center was not affected by this chart says it was some distance away. this can be seen on the surveillance video hidden, the more with me selves would have destroyed it. video from ukraine and bloggers shows that goes inside the shopping center. we're not affected by blast neighboring houses to the shopping center. we're also not affected. their windows when broken, which would have only been possible if the messiah exploded at a considerable distance from the area. we have not talked to civilian infrastructure and they're not doing it now from the, from on this we can coastline to our correspondent caleb mop and they're in the states. now caleb, you're following this. you can talk us through what's happening at the meeting. sure, well you just heard from the russian deputy ambassador paul janski's, and he pointed out that there is fatigue in western countries including the united states about the ongoing conflict in ukraine and its economic consequences. and he
10:11 pm
argues that there is just a continued barrage of fake news. i intended to justify the further supplying of weapons and funding to the ukranian government that seems to have no qualms about sacrificing its people. now it's pointed out that these allegations about the shopping center that just don't add up fit in with the ghost story they fit in with, with the allegations of about snake island. and these sailors being massacred when they weren't actually killed on it, fits him with a whole pattern of deception. now, before we heard from the russian, deputy ambassador, we also heard from the ukrainian president himself who spoke over video. he was given a platform by the representative of albania, i called for the un to find some mechanism through which they could declare russia to be a terrorist state and remove it from the security council. then we also heard from the representative of the united states who echoed and offered support for ukraine,
10:12 pm
and then made some other interesting remarks. this is what the u. s. representative said before the 15 member body that leads the united nation reasoning, that russia's war of choice has led directly to the destruction of crowded malls, grocery stores, theaters hospitals, and schools, and the innocent civilians inside them and make no mistake. deliberate and indiscriminate attacks on civilians and civilian objects constitute war crimes. the united states supports all international investigations into these crimes, including those being conducted by the i c, c, the u. n. and the o. s. c. now the support we just heard from the representative of the added states before the united nations for the international criminal court is quite interesting as the united states is not actually a member of the i c, c. and furthermore, in 2020 us officials imposed sanctions against the international criminal court
10:13 pm
because it dared to investigate the crimes of us troops in afghanistan. so it's quite interesting to hear the usa offering support for the international criminal court. the representative of russia basically debunked a lot of the barrage of deceptive information. i pointed out that russia has supplied information to calendar the claims that are being bandied about by western media. regardless of that fact, western media ignores the documentation. russia provides to show it is not committing crimes against civilians. alright. are to corresponding there in the states kellum up and keeping across the u. n. situation. we know that as a develops, you'll be there for us. appreciate that. now both key of and the west have unanimously dubbed the incident at the mall a war crime, despite russia's denial, that's a field in which western powers have more than their fair share of controversy or cheese don quarter comments on why. according to moscow, it was the massive explosion caused by all that ammunition going off at the same time that made the nearby mall catch fire as well. on top of that,
10:14 pm
the ukrainian cities mayor is saying that the malls management for some reason decided it wasn't going to shut the place down. if the air raid alarms started to go off, neglecting her right eludes is a crime which the target hamster has. once again, demonstrated an investigation has ruled that the administration of m to had announced on the 23rd of june, that the mo would no longer be closed during the air raid alerts. if a high precision missile dealt that much damage to nearby infrastructure, imagine the destruction that an artillery bombardment would have wrought, according to a previous conclusion by the international criminal court. russia should be well within its rights to bomb a 70 meter radius around. and the legend military target. why, while there's the case of antic tova and blood and markovich to former croatian generals who were acquitted of war crimes by the skin of their teeth. at 1st, these western backed military men were found guilty of indiscriminately bombing
10:15 pm
towns as part of an offensive that killed $116.00 civilians and displaced hundreds of thousands in 1995 in the middle of the yugoslav wars. the hague. originally decided that bombarding beyond the 200 meter radius of a military target was outside the bounds of reasonable error. it was only after they appealed the ruling that the hague determines that 200 meters was in fact too strict. and so the croatian generals were led off the hook despite the fact that they had ordered the bombings of civilian populated areas up to 700 meters away from military targets. the appeals chamber unanimously found the child chamber erred in concluding that all artillery impact size located more than 200 meters from a target. dean's legitimate served as evidence of unlawful attacks. the trial chamber early in fighting. hillary attacks ordered by mister toby and mister markets were unlawful. so russia is being accused of a war cry after causing collateral damage 70 meters away from what it says was
10:16 pm
a military target. but western back potential war criminals get away. scotch free for bombing civilians, 700 meters away. not only are the double standards, glaringly obvious here, but it also begs a couple of questions. why in the world would ukraine place military infrastructure that close to a shopping mall? and why was the mall allowed to be open in the 1st place unless the authorities were trying to use civilians as human shields? with oil prices continuing to skyrocket, senior us officials have traveled to venezuela trying to bring home detained americans and rebuild relations with the south american oil giant batteries. despite years of hostilities between the u. s and venezuela's, socialist government and relations between the 2 countries began to deteriorate rapidly in 2018 when the u. s. refused to recognize the reelection of president
10:17 pm
nicholas memorial. washington instead referring to opposition leader one guy does as the legitimate president, venezuela was also excluded from this month's summit of the americas, which was held in los angeles. however, with oil prices on the rise due to western sanctions against russia, washington has been forced to make overtures to his rival. really this month, the speaker of the house, nancy pelosi could no longer remember who won quite a was oh thanks. but the person that you recognized as a leader democratic leader is not here. what do you think about them? so one way they'll hear, by whom one way though they in turn president of venezuela, that you recognize prior to washington and acting sanctions against caracas, venezuela was one of the u. s. is biggest oil suppliers,
10:18 pm
but since they're in position in 2019 in ports from the country have almost declined to stagnation point. however, if 50 percent jumping oil prices and the worst inflation in the u. s. in years appears to be leading to a shift in policy. for more details. let's cross live to ivan, vote for vice chair for the libertarian national committee in the us. thanks for being with us here as always. so are there is this current trip by us officials, purely a consequence of problems in the oil market, or is there something else here? i think there's 2 things. first, there's a sort of self created shortage over here. when you create sanctions or other countries, you end up punishing just normal people in those countries and you end up punishing yourself. oil sanctions are hurting americans as much as they're hurting anybody else. so 1st, this is literally punishing yourself for somebody else is bad at for somebody
10:19 pm
else's bad actions. but the 2nd thing is, i think americans and even the american government is starting to realize that sanctions are unnecessary to prove. ready the other failures of socialism, venezuela has the largest confirmed oil reserves in the world. and due to their just sheer incompetence has been struggling. the problem with putting sanctions on venezuela is it'll let people say it's not the socialism, but rather the sanction by lifting all sanctions opening completely to trade. we can put this to a fair experiment and see can socialism work? and if not, let's get it out of it as well. all right, so there's a lot going kind of contradicting information here. do you think that this means that the u. s. is actually ready to roll back its anti maduro policy in favor of solving its own economic problems. i don't think it's trying to roll back the anti madura policy. i think it's trying to, it's starting to realize that sanctions themselves are problematic. sanctions punish people at home and they give foreign incompetent governments. an alternative
10:20 pm
excuse to blame. right now, the missouri government can say listen, is not the fault of our incompetence. no, no, no. it's american things that are causing this poverty. if we lived all those sanctions, and i think that that more and more people in america about the government, more and more people in america are ready to do that. if we lift all of those sanctions, there's no excuse either. venezuela thrives showing that socialism is in fact perfectly viable way to run the economy. or more likely it continues to falter without being able to blame america, american sanction, or struggle. the correct answer here, clearly to get rid of all thanks and in the united states ready to do that. i believe that they might be ready to do that. maybe for the wrong reason. but for whatever reason, if we can get rid of those ations as going to be good for americans, and want to be good for just a general political information of the world. just recently we actually had the summit of the americas and nancy pelosi even appeared to forget who one gladto was
10:21 pm
its long time choice for venezuelan leader. he was at the knight's summit of the americas. is this just a coincidence, or is this like a hint at a total reset of relations in the country or between the 2 countries? well, there are 2 possibilities. one is that she simply forgot a political non entity and then we're talking about somebody that has no meaningful power and venezuela that has no influence. and ben as well, that's not really. i mean it's not even, not even a figurehead. i mean, we're just talking about just like a random guy from venezuela, basically. and so she might simply forgotten who he was. it is also possible. i mean, i remember nancy pelosi is an experience foreign policy operative. it is also possible that this is a signal that, that, that the united states is ready to stop playing these ridiculous game and say, yeah, this is your leader. this is your president. we think if policies are terrible, but he's the one you chose. now let's see what the results are of those policies. we're not going to ruin your economy. but the guy you chose might well do it for us
10:22 pm
to the political side of things. i guess if you can call it that, merican is basically they want to know how to get those gas prices down. what steps can the us take towards venezuela in order to solve the problem of oil prices? i mean, the, the prices are high because the united states has cut off its own oil supply. so, i mean, if you cut off oil from venezuela, you kind of oil from russia. i mean, you're just like, literally driving your crew. it's a created shortage that the united states is doing to itself the solution to that is to end the things. and i'm not saying that i support the war and ukraine because i absolutely don't. but punishing americans for the actions of the russian government is ridiculous. punishing americans to the actions of the men as well. and government is ridiculous. oil thanks are just punishing americans. we're paying the prices for those things and we're paying more money. we're suffering more our economy is hurting because those sanctions are doing with things is always do and
10:23 pm
times of war. it's common to cut off supplies to other countries. what the us government is doing right now, cutting off supply for the united states. and it's literally an act of war against the people. it is the worst and most foolish, short sighted, really thing you can possibly do. all right, ivan, it's a pleasure to have you on the vice chair for the libertarian national committee. thanks for being with turner g. banks wrote me on you know, the french president has been caught off guard, breaking some rather bad news to his u. s. counterpart in a hot mike incident. menu micron is heard telling joe biden, that arab nations won't be able to produce more oil for at least 6 months, putting a damper on western efforts to lower their record energy prices. a with
10:24 pm
one with there is no better way to draw attention to yourself than to run up to the president of the united states, yelling joe joe, and then start whispering when there are cameras around. not whole knew very well that he wasn't at a private party and that there were cameras around. so what's that old adage, if you want people to pay attention to what you're saying? just start whispering, right? so here in france,
10:25 pm
raise talking about it. it makes you wonder if that was the intent. so who was president michael's audience? and what did he want us to understand? obviously, europe is facing an energy prices in supply problems. but chancellor schultz is out there denouncing the same fossil fuels that you countries desperately need business . i know we do have to realize, of course, that the future does not lying gas. this is very particular for germany. and this is something that is going to have an impact on the use of fossil fuels such a cold and gas fargo. so he says, germany's future doesn't lay in gas? well, i guess than it lays in realistically and dirty coal since germany just fired up cold plants. again, out of desperation, germany industry is sounding the alarm over and over again about a gas emergency. and it economy minister is warning of industry shut
10:26 pm
down amid gas shortages as of last week. the country is now in phase 2 of 3. i've, it's emergency gas plan. and what that means is a high risk of gas shortages through the winter time. now the federal regulator has said that these scenarios are, quote, not pretty and mean either to little gas at the end of winter, or in or already very difficult situations in autumn or winter. now in germany, b a s f is one of the world's largest chemical producers and it makes products founded things like tooth paste automobiles. madison's and it relies on cheap russian gas. and the wall street journal just had a piece about this. but schultz, chancellor schultz is dreaming only in green about him. and we will also expand renewable energies and work even more intensively illness. the decisions that we have taken show that financing fossil fuel energy sources is something that needs to come to an end to the end. so german industries aren't the only ones that are
10:27 pm
cutting their gas usage in anticipation of shortfalls. european industries are as well. and despite that, chancellor schultz is really pushing ahead with his climate club, which he wants to stand up among the g 7 before the end of the year. and everything is green, green green when in reality they are taking huge steps backwards in anticipation of an energy crunch. mohammed al sabah on a former senior adviser to saudi arabia's energy minister, says the ears, chaotic, energy, policies, and sanctions against russia have caused prices to sor. the reason for the hide all the price is not the supply demand or sure supply shortages. the chaos that the european union is in with regards to energy policies. they are not taking that decisions. they are to follow
10:28 pm
in the united states and they are not even subjecting all of these proposals that be advising from the united say to the cost benefit analysis. what kind of cars not on the economically, but also politically, they are not. they are in the top 10 chaos they are. they don't know what to do. and we have seen mr. sharks to show that when would be independent varies, varies so on. and they cannot with that, it is organ or gas. this is a reality that they need to take into account this of the barbarian sanctioned, that there was, is use it. and now whenever the russians react to the sanction, they say when this is unacceptable, etc, etc. and they forgot about their sanctions. so i think it would take some time
10:29 pm
before we see prizes go down, reflecting the calmness of the geo political fact that this. and i think if, if today they abandon the sanction, then probably another 4 to 6 months before prices started to civilize at the lower, livid, or that does it for me this hour, i will be back and let's say 30 minutes and 30 seconds with another full and fresh look to mr watts. this is our to international ah, i look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given by human beings, except where such order that conflict with the 1st law show your identification. we
10:30 pm
should be very careful about artificial intelligence. and the point obviously, is to create trust rather than fear a with artificial intelligence. real summoning with a robot must protect its own existence with the with sanctions on russia are distorting in damaging the global economy. consumers all over the world are experiencing higher prices and shortages. at the same time, most of the global south has little interest in the west campaign against russia and in the long run they benefit from a world economy in transition.
