ah ah, then a met with you to know about that, but the name itself is what the president politician the department of who's a general or a good night. or he gets an exclusive chance to join brush and private military company. the wagner group currently participating in operations, the new frame russian energy giant gas from blame turbine engine appears as a flash of natural gas applied be ignored from one pipeline 20 percent of capacity funding european prices to their highest level since march. also up ahead. when did they ask your question, are you open to wish i? should you much, much when you do you,
i should have gotten the president spells out his foreign policy abuse. after talking with russia, foreign minister, who's in the african country, on the latest top of the 4 of the continent. ah, good morning, 9 am here in moscow from wherever you're watching the program. welcome. i'm fiorella is about with the top stories for the sour. we begin with the latest situation in ukraine where kids forces launch a barrage of attacks on tuesday against a strategically important bridge in the city of keratin, which is currently under the control of russian forces. local authorities say that the bridge was temporarily closed after the latest attack, but the cities air defense systems had intercepted the earlier missiles. the bridge has previously been struck several times. the incident came after ukraine's
president confirmed his forces had begun a counter attack in the region as russian led forces continue to advance in the don bass. lugens authority say the allied army has taken control of the key leg course power plant in don. yes, logan. sc officials, claim ukrainian forces, mind the area before retreating, and now a clean up operation of the territory surrounding europe's largest thermal power plant is underway. among the russian troops involved in the operation, our members of the wagner group, a private military company. our t is more at gosti of reports from the region where he exclusively accompanies the group on in operation. there were no c fruit leading to where we were doing that then again, the people we were visiting, specialize in forging parts where there are none. the factors who took this village
did not help. they go there many different names, the amount of regular group, they're known as the orchestra wagner or just as the musician, very little is known about that. but the name itself is one good, keeps western politicians, presidents, prime ministers, a general awake at night. we turn out something called the wagner. the e u has announced sanctions on the russian private military company wagner as the church of the wagner group. as we know at 1st popped up in ukraine, the british defense ministry says more than a 1000 fighters from russian private military contractor. the wagner group are being deployed to the country. russian mercenaries governor is recruiting, and is making it known. and not just them give to, has learned to fear the world's most talked about and enigmatic private military, competing
with ah, the whistling sound you heard was not an audio artifact. that was the sound of you pay the imposter. my rockets disgorging hundreds of band appear to have one minds which characteristically flutter down to the ground. stand by the ottawa anti personnel mind convention which ukraine east party 2 for weeks now. they have attempted to stall, or at least slow the orchestra's advance by carpet forming the countryside with band butterfly mines and other things besides his. her supplies left behind by
ukrainian tubes nationalists as they retreated from clean of oil. you may see this very thin wire. careful, careful, back and over there, something that shouldn't even be here, a man, 50 anti personnel non. what you can signed a convention, promising it would never use that, it would destroy what the ensemble sappers can remove, safely. they do what they can't, or what they deem could be a trap. they blew who thomas said for a 150 seconds is going to be quite the by were $0.04 a piece was a rare opportunity. could you positions do not usually take kindly to outsiders? they work alone, where they operate, cameras are almost always absent. see who conditions that they work in. our permanent health hazard. artillery and mortar jewels here are deafening.
and endless and minutes to not pass without an impact nearby. uh they go 120 millimeter mortar flooring, ukrainian positions that go to the 4th 13 or 4 and the meat counter battery for kicks in. a g of has thrown everything it could spare at the ensemble gradient special forces units, the nationalist battalion, our daughter at the elite, had mounted assault brigade, who arrayed against the thousands of mines and avalon troops, shells and rockets. nothing's health. the orchestra marches on
silent, secretive and relentless to simply that only they can hear what gusty of archie from fin the lawyer did he it's people's republic. russian energy, giant gas prom has slash natural gas applies via it's north sharing one pipeline to just 20 percent of capacity sending european natural grass prices to their highest level since march. the company has that the reduction was due down due to the gas turbine engine repairs. the move comes in the wake of e u. countries committing to an unprecedented 15 percent reduction in gas consumption until next spring. although the small print shows that the energy saving plan is voluntary and has exemptions, but despite that, e. u chief ursula bonder lay and praised the blots moved saying it shows the
unanimity of member nations. i strongly welcome the endorsement by counsel of the regulation to reduce gas demand and prepare for the winter. it is a decisive step to face down the threat of a full gas disruption. thanks to today's decision, europe is now ready to address its energy security as a union. the only really entity on this issue is the countries that refuse to cut their gas use agree that those who have had no choice and no alternatives should really well. yeah, ration their supply. so there's really no solidarity at all in brussels. the central request that all $27.00 member states reduced their gas consumption by 15 percent. this is really all about the entire e. you coming to the rescue germany, the blocks top economic engine, which lacked the courage to you stand up to american pressure to sanction its pipeline projects with russia, and then stood idly by while that you did exactly the same thing. all apparently, without any viable back a plan for their own national economy. berlin made a really foolish strategic mistake by depending so heavily on renewables when it's
pretty clear that they aren't ready for prime time. so berlin, a gun by brussels, talked a good tough game about being strong and independent, not needing any russian energy. but, well, i guess was all bluster because it's still so reliant on that russian gas that freaked out over attending maintenance shut down of the nord stream on pipeline. and is now panicking again over gas primes reduction of delivery volume by 80 percent starting tomorrow. so the berlin hands the blocks member states have decided today that if brussels ever imposes the 15 percent cut as a binding measure, well, in all their spirit of unity, they'll just opt out. that's the kind of unity over which you officials are all padding each other on the back today. you really can't make this stuff up. malta, cypress, ireland, and portugal aren't connected to the you grid aren't reliant on gas. and well, they want to maintain their independence and sovereignty france almost made the same foolish choices that jeremy did by launching headlong into green energy. but
then a dodge to bullet when at success really logging brussels to reclassify nuclear power is green earlier this year. so now it figures that they can just fire up a few more radioactive energy plants again and whether this turbulence. so as a french ecology ministry says they really were cool with brussels proposed dictate . we do not want to introduce uniform objectives that would not be adapted to every one's reality in which ultimately would not have an impact on our ability to export gas to our neighbors. greason, spain had also said no to the proposal, insisting on maintaining sovereign control over their own supply and hungry is while already in king. the russian gas deals even as the rest of the u. rings. it's hands over how it can possibly continue to keep ukraine president library zalinski happy without completely bleeding out their own economies. oh, and by the way, they really can't keep him happy clearly because he's been popping off yet. today even is that you states were meeting, repeating his mantra,
that the you house to head back with even more sanctions, apparently oblivious to the fact that sanctions are exactly why the situation in europe is this bad. as much as the you is paying lip service to the idea of solidarity and making a lot of noise about it in public. the reality is that the increased pressure is causing any unity to start falling apart at the seams. germany, economist them publisher i camera believe that the ordinary europeans to will end up paying for the price of the ease plan to cut gas consumption. i'm afraid that the european bureaucrats really think that they are in charge and they can take the order of ordering people. busy that to, to limit their consumption of, of gas. we have no chance of influencing who is going to be in the, in the european headquarter. and these people are just ruling from top to down.
and this is all falling apart. it does not beneficial for their own people, they're not only paying more for the gas they have. they get limits from what they get. and on top, they using that jobs because the companies are breaking apart. and on top, the euro is losing ground and is getting worthless and work, let so no holiday and other things in be foreign countries anymore. this is an uncontrolled demolition of the economy with an m punishment of the european people . and russia top diplomat has hinted that a key cause of europe's energy crisis lies in pure politics survey lab, rob stress that the nordstrom to pipeline, which connects russia to germany, but doesn't currently have berlin's operational approval, is capable of meeting the demand just was the was now witnessing the bus around the decision by gas problem that one more gas turbine of north stream one has to be taken to maintenance. and the
e. u is conveying some extraordinary energy session on the matter. in this regard i simply wanda, there are rules which provides secure operation to the pipeline. did i get it right that we are being urged to violate the rules as particular german representatives are doing? as far as i'm concerned, germans are famous for being committed to rules. how can they call for the violation of rules on which depends the security of people when it comes to the north stream to it is completely ready to make up for the demands of europe, which needs this particular fuel. however, it's close for purely political reasons. for the children now sergey oliver was speaking from uganda during the 3rd leg of his african tor ugandan president phrased russia as a partner in its struggle against colonialism. and in a joint press conference, both men can from the refusal to contribute to the polarization of the world window of the cold war. one day the us mail question, are you perused? or for a was a should you must,
you mustn't come when did you where do you think my, my men job is to be for somebody i am from i should've and i did was or other people are good and how the lives with my own interest is people think with. ready really stupid has a question, is your question? sure to my your report. easterel bruce ampro, my should've presume he can't is present, gave the only right answer when asked whether he's pro western or pro eastern politician. an answer which you could expect from a serious political figure, but i'm 40 right now. these instincts have colonialism emerge in the politics of western countries when they demand the whole well take their side and rally against all the others. we also discussed the root causes of the unfolding energy and food crises, african friends understand that the origins of that have nothing to do with the military operation. when it comes to bilateral relations. we agree to keep that in mind and look for opportunities in the energy and food sectors,
which wouldn't depend on the whim of western partners. for his 4 minutes, there is an on a guest here on the side. stress is all the time the delegation has been accepted at the presidential palace. this is where lobrado met both his counterpart and the country's leader. we'll gone days, a long term strategic and economic park. no, russia, that was one of just a few countries supported a gun. this independence from bridge empire, gandhi's highly dependent on russia's grain, the global food crisis, that followed western economic sanctions against russia was among the key topics on the agenda. well, the rush is very active here on the african continent. the west express has concerns about that, and he's trying to put pressure on all original players working together with moscow or gun the is the 3rd country minister loughborough visits as part of his african tour. next comes ethiopia, and that was our t correspondent, maria fin ocean from the ugandan capital earlier lab rav was in egypt and the
republic of congo as part of his 4 country trip. after uganda, he travels to his final destination of ethiopia. russia's top diplomat also spoke with representatives from over 20 arab league nations. it's a visit that hasn't gone down well with the u. s. department of state a spokesperson claiming that the tor demonstrates how isolated russia is. it is becoming clear that russia is recognizing that his own actions have caused it to become a tooth . and we have good relations with russia. all countries of africa have sovereignty and are free to choose their own policies quicker. our stance on the russia, ukraine crisis has remained unchanged since it's breakout. we never wanted to how
with the wolves as to will to the fire johannesburg base political science researcher, not that tico. mo louie was says, a meeting between the ugandan president and russian foreign minister is of crucial importance to building equal cooperation, which will be beneficial for both sides. what do the, the, the president of a, of you gotten better rated is simply that we know lined in the sense of using the cold war analogy, west or east. however, we do knowledge the fact that those who a would want to do things to our benefit and not only to that benefit. and one of those countries would be right. and that's why you would find that, that you would say really would have a m will come minister level with open arms into the walmart.
because we also acknowledge that we don't live in a, in an island. we live in an international community that needs to strengthen particular relationships. this is easy to, we're not well received in the western court us because they know predominantly that one to our free time. me, we talk of progress. lot a big, broad, the bullying of one state by that. but we talk about progress. and despite the western sanctions on russia, its economy is said to be coping well with the challenge that's according to the international monetary fund and its latest world economic outlook rushes economy as estimated to have contracts during the 2nd quarter by less than previously projected with crude oil and non energy exports holding up better than expected. domestic demand is also showing some resilience thanks to containment of the effect
of the sanctions. the i m f has upgraded russia's g d p estimate by a remarkable 2.5 percentage points. that's despite the sanction being imposed with the intention of isolating russia from the global financial system and damaging its economy. sorry, energy prices of also provided extra revenue. oil prices rising from $80.00 a barrel at the beginning of the year to currently more than $100.00. earlier i spoke with jack ross, miss a professor of economics and politics at saint mary's college of california. who says that anti russian sanctions have had the opposite effect of western to western countries intentions. basically the sanctions have not worked very well if their major objective was to really shut down the russian economy. even even western corporations leaving did not have the effect that they thought it was when this thing began late last year. and the sanctions were on the table with us. they didn't think him through very,
very clearly. what could be some of the ramifications and some of the negative consequences? i saw estimates that it would cause a contract in the russian economy. 12 to 15 percent. of course it's been much, much less than that, maybe 64 to 6 percent. and not, not that much different, probably from what we're going to see in europe. so the whole idea of the sanctions was to deny russia revenue, especially from its commodities exports. well, that didn't happen. actually, revenue increase because the price increased. but because revenue increase the rubel, the currency did not collapse like the, the sanctions were supposed to make it. and because that didn't collapse, they didn't have to raising bank a, russia didn't have to raise interest rates and shut down the russian economy. so all of those indicators did not actually happen the way that the advisors thought it would happen in terms of western sanctions. club, you know,
it doesn't come through in the western media that well, but most of the world is not on the on board with the sanctions. it's mostly the g 7 only in the interests of democracy. that's how a former c i a chief, has justified his agencies meddling and foreign elections, which he admitted have taken place. we ever tried to meddle in other countries, alexus. oh probably. but it was for the good of the system in order to avoid the communists from coming over. if we don't do that, i don't know, i don't restaurant and i'm them. i'm only very good to do that through hiring video. and those former are very good cause i'm interested in the book. x chief james wall, see named greece in italy as being both targeted in the late 1940 s in an effort to prevent communists from coming to power. at the end of world war 2, the c, i sponsor rightly organizations in greece to prevent the country from coming under
the influence of the soviet union. the countries communist party was banned and greece was ruled by far right wing dictatorships for decades until an uprising finally over through the military, junta in 1974. in aly, a communist led coalition was considered to have had a good chance of success in the 1940 a general election. however, the vote was won by a centrist party, which the c i later admitted funding. and while the former c h e didn't clarify the agencies activities in both countries. he's not the 1st to make such an admission. i was the c i, director, we live with. so if somebody who is health plan, coo data, no, not here, but you know, other places it takes a lot of work. we will not promote democracy through costly military interventions or by attempting to overthrow authoritarian regimes by force. we tried these tactics in the past. however, well intentioned, they haven't worked. what we really are not talking about is what happened in iran
in the 1950s. what happened all through latin america in the 19 fifties and sixties into the 1970 s. you know, it's not just a handful of countries around the world that the cia did this in, but it's dozens and dozens of countries. and overthrowing of government or stealing in election is not democratic. you know, we used to say to cia that every country should be free to choose the kind of government it wanted, and we used to use saudi arabia as an example. you know, if you're, if you're looking from a reale politic point of view, we didn't want democracy in saudi arabia. so the better policy is to, is to leave other countries alone to leave them to their own devices. it's not up to these arrogant intelligence officers in the united states to decide what country
gets, what kind of a government it's just simply wrong. besides being a violation of international law, saving the planet is not our priority says a democratic republic of congo official, the countries decision to auction off. huge tracks of tropical pete lands and parts of the world's 2nd largest rain for us for oil and gas drilling comes just months after it promised to preserve been at the c o. p 26 climate conference. it occurs as the world scrambles for fossil fuels as price rise, the steeply in the wake of the west, the sanctions against moscow. the areas for sale extend into her room, good national park, the world's most important gorilla sanctuary. and congo least pete lands which play in a central role and keeping carbon out of the atmosphere and from contributing to global warming. the decision to allow oil drilling in the areas marks a shift from the country's policy of protecting its precious reinforce to actually using them as
a source of revenue to reduce poverty. a local journalist says exploiting the country's national natural resources offers no tangible improvement to the countries environmental situation. the democratic republic of congo is rich in monroe resources. and the when we talk about a federal normally the oil, this country is still remaining poor. the spiritual court held this country to get more fineness resources to help the government, especially the different development program, but are protecting that nature. and when there is no development, there is no development program in this country. i think it's a contradiction because are these countries still remaining, cor, are the same time they worse in countries, are using their patrol to develop their industries. but here,
this country is still a poor, for example, in canada, in the u. s. and they are using their patrol, they're exploding down natural resources, but when it come sa check, so see the okay, we are protecting nature. i see that is unfair for african country, especially the democratic republic of congo. and that's it for right now. thanks for tuning in and remember to follow us on our instagram twitter rumble and odyssey for more news and content. see you next time on our team. ah. when you're losing a battle with little or any possibility of victory, that's when you should start to think about ending the conflict. but this is not the case in ukraine today. to longer the conflict last, the worse it is for you, it would seem that is washington's plan. ah,
ah . ah, the 1st time in history, an entire country's culture has been cancelled the very modern weapon console culture. daily desert. wonderful language, sheffield my last little book in william prague here. just misleading the with the phrase now, particularly refers to counseling russian culture and yet know what he career of. she was the zip code when you're my foot. sure. which of over your there is children. that go with them most of the temperature random e. normally what rushes created over the past 1500 years is now question
partially condemned, reviled, and rejected to sit in line. and you said it's funny at the bill of battle, there's a lot closer on a whole boat any time. thank you said a little short list. joining total condemnation, gross daily and now includes dostoevsky to cascade, shostakovich that i need to you all the tour left. but yes, it also says that with the w deer, obama lee, you're not going to do that a little bit more. ah the
quote for more than a classical commodity realtor lesson to look at what i want to look into, but i just got another message and you look you said okay, didn't implement those people barry, this little note with carlos murphy for this you and what i meant to perform by those most possible personally for me, for the most us, for most of the 3 stick to do that. that's
just me most though i want to serve us some time ago joe, which is the 1st one which is company. those amigos come and test it all, let this have a system which is on which is almost a month. is it by anybody that you knew do more with i looked up at the delinquent as we last city us in college at i mean k e d, will you, let's talk on the phone. i mean, i'm to bucks on the phone book i it is all.
