fee of social media shares a video that appears to show ukranian trib, dropping a bomb on russian soldiers as a retrieval body from the battlefield. a election posters, diplomacy change every way that many voters complain. it's the usual empty promises from those vying for the top office jobs economy changer r t at reports from kenya. we're pull open in a hotly contested race for president. it hopes paid on a solution to the country's financial crisis. ah, hello at 7 am here in moscow. welcome to our to international news. i'm parallel is about with the hours most pressing news stories worldwide. thanks for joining south . africa won't be pushed around. that's according to the country's foreign affairs minister after the u. s. secretary of state tries to convince pretoria to sever
12:02 am
ties with russia and china. instead, south africa's diplomat raises concerns that those were using the country's natural resources are destabilizing the region. this fear that we exist under some push is i think, a totally a rear, unfounded. a belief in the relationship that we have with eva country is also a concern about countries that have mineral interests in african countries as a destabilizing force. so i think we need to look at the foot thorough of problems that give rise to insecurity, bad governance. and the absence of democracy on the african continent is not a one country problem that has anthony blanc and travel strip atoria with a speech on new policies for african countries. washington states that contain russian and chinese influence in the region during the trip. lincoln blame the food
12:03 am
prices in africa on the war and ukraine, and called for a stronger partnership with the continent to deal with that. we seen the repercussions of russia's warn ukraine, which are felt across the planet. and especially across africa in rising food and energy prices, what we seek most of all is a true partnership between the united states and africa. we don't want an unbalanced or transactional relationship. and our commitment to a stronger partnership with africa is not about trying to outdo anyone else. why did you fall by? is it a tear? it was who we saw the figure in africa from china. so united was a russia and china, me to where to protect it, such as coinciding with the visit, the white house releases
12:04 am
a document detailing it's new strategy towards sub saharan regents. the plan promotes u. s. involvement in african nations policies, including issues such as pandemic, climate change, and food insecurity. and while blink and says the u. s. won't tell africa how to behave. it also shows washington, not happy with the continence ties with russia and china. the people's republic of china by contrast, sees the region as an important arena to challenge the rules based international order. and we can us relations with african peoples and governments. russia use the region as a permissive environment for paras, stables, and private military companies, often fermenting instability for strategic and financial benefit. u. s. accusations, however, don't prevent deepening ties as china is now south africa's biggest trading partner . moscow's trade with the country is also on the rise with monthly exports from russia. this january growing more than 4 times compared to january of last year.
12:05 am
and while the u. s. is still trying to convince the reason that russia and china are the root of all troubles. the african public seems to find more faith and ties with bricks, countries than with the west. i think more african countries same carries to be better off the brakes. and you can see that to feel of men, teens of africa, i'm shoe ice also spinoffs, roma, joining that cloud. you have such developed countries know, like your, your china or russia region could assist other countries in terms of having to achieve the same living off of, in foster child economy the, to the, in, at this point in time, america has been playing with us for a long time, there's no time for for bricks to grow. jo altman, host of the conservative daily podcast says there's a reason why african nations don't believe in us promises. i don't think the u. s. is every states into sovereignty of other nations,
12:06 am
and when they talk about these stabilization, they can look no further than themselves. and the sad part about with the u. s. says is just a bunch of rhetoric and look, i'm, i'm an american and i'm proud to be an american, but the apparatus within the u. s. government has long been a destabilizing force and almost putting at, you know, african, a place where they can't grow, they can't excel at the same rate that other countries across the world are growing . and that has a lot more to do with their natural resources. and how they can get access to those resources. so no, i don't believe they respect the sovereignty of any decisions that they make. and i am actually fearful that it's going to become a tug of war and the people of those african natives. 54 nations are the ones that are going to suffer and the african nation. firstly, south africa does not trust the united states. many nations don't trust united states, i don't think anything the united states does right now will be seen as anything other than grandstanding and making empty promises that they will near into the future not be able to deliver on. and it's the strategy washington also sites a long and proud history of supporting africa. however, our jo, altman,
12:07 am
again says it's the u. s. who holds responsibility for di, stabilizing the continent. we can actually look at a country called sudan and many people that live to your station understand what happened in sudan. there was a referendum both in the country and half. and in between that country was the avia district, which is the oil rich district and sudan was long a partner of the united states until president alba sheer stood out to us interest and said, now we're not going to do that. and so the, the chaos instability that ensued in the propaganda was spread across the globe. and obviously the i, c, c, indictments are proven to be false and they just kept their finger on it. so any instability that we've seen thus far has typically been the. busy that the hands of, of us century cia interest f b, i would say out of yeah, but no shadow interest. and so that the chaos has been created in those nations is largely largely been a part of the western strategy in order to take natural resources. and now to

gaza, we're at least $44.00 people have been killed and hundreds of wound after 3 days of israeli bombing. air strikes, have ravaged residential neighborhoods and civilian infrastructure. here some of the latest footage from the seen room with a fragile ceasefire between israel and the palestinian islamic jihad militant group reportedly held through monday as hospitals in gaza. struggle to treat the many civilians injured during the week and of hostilities. how athenian officials say some 650 buildings were damaged before a truce came into effect on sunday. at the height of the tensions palestinian
12:09 am
militants in israeli armed forces exchange rock a barrage with an air strikes. as garza again reels from devastation, the un security council has held an emergency meeting to discuss the 10th situation on the ground. the events saw the palestinian observer call for more global attention to the humanitarian situation and gaza. while israel gain support from washington after it accused the palestinian islamic jihad group of targeting civilians, there is no room for false narratives. the fact are clear. the palestinian islamic jihad deliberately fired 1100 rockets. it is rarely civilians with roughly $200.00 lending inside the gaza. strip killing innocent palestinians and among them young children, this is not an assessment. this is the hard truth. and israel has all the proof. we fully support israel's right to defend his people against terrorist threats,
12:10 am
including from rocket fire, aimed at civilians or without regard to them. and while the u. s. ambassador to the un justifies israel's balmy of gaza as self defense artes. rachel blevins investigates accusations of double standards when it comes to western officials, as views on conflicts and other countries. 3 days of clashes between israel and the palestinian militant group included a number of what israel called preemptive airstrikes on gaza, which select at least 40 for palestinians dead including 15 children and more than $300.00 wounded. yet despite the photos and videos that were shared across social media, which showed israel clearly targeting heavily populated residential areas, there was virtually no outrage from the west. in fact, president biden has praised the money the u. s. spent on the iron dome system and says that it saved countless lives in israel, and he is not the only one turning
12:11 am
a blind eye to the collateral damage in gaza. we absolutely fully support israel's right to defend itself against terrorist groups that are taking the lives of innocent civilians in israel. the u. k. stands by israel and it's right to defend itself. we condemn terrorist groups firing it civilians and violence which has resulted in casualties on both sides. we call for a swift end to the violence. france condemns the firing of rockets into israeli territory and reiterates its unconditional commitment to the security of israel. the focus was mainly on israel's right to defend itself with no questions asked as to why dozens of palestinian civilians were being killed while the israeli death toll remains at 0. it's clearly a very different approach than the one western leaders of taken. and in recent months, where they mourned every ukrainian casualty that was reported and used it to condemn what they called the russian brutality, the u. k. stones, united in condemning,
12:12 am
rushes reprehensible behavior. there were no shades of gray in this conflict. it is about right and wrong. we can become numb to this. we can't normalize this. this is the reality. what's going on every single day, as long as russia's brutality against ukraine continues. that's why these to come to an end. to understand what this international justice must prevail, those who committed these crimes will have to answer for them. and speaking of concern over civilians being killed, those western officials were nowhere to be found when ukraine and it's all turn nationalist killed. thousands and don bass over the last 8 years. not only are the tears reserved for certain cases, but so is the selective terminology west tends to use in their eyes, ukrainians, or heroes, whoever, right? you force their will over regions that have declared their independence. but it's the palestinians who are labeled as terrorist, even as some of them live under an internationally recognized israeli occupation.
12:13 am
and the have blogger see is plain to see as headlines that praised ukrainian defenders now condemned palestinian militants out gun, but defiant, ukrainian twin cities defenders ready for russian attack. palestinian militants, fire rockets at israel after gaz, airstrikes. and that's not the only double standard. the west seems to have president biden spoke out on sunday, saying he welcome the news of a cease fire in gaza while refusing to condemn his as rally allies for the killing of civilians. however, the u. s. continues to refuse to encourage ukraine to negotiate a truce with russia. in fact, to anyone who dares to try and do so. 6 has been met with allegations that they must be pro ration if they are advocating for peace and ukraine. that includes former u. k. labor party leader, jeremy corbett, oregon. same isn't going to bring about a solution. it's only going to prolong and exaggerate this rule. why fi
12:14 am
disappointing is that a hobby? any of the world's leaders use a word and he is not the only one. former german chancellor, gerard schroeder, hungarian, president, victor, oregon, and even henry kissinger have made similar statements. and they have all been accused of being kremlin apologise, and that ukraine appears to be the only place where the west is not allowed to mention piece. and yes, as including the conflict between kosovo and serbia, where the iep was quick to set up talks or the taiwan strait, where the g 7 immediately called for stability in response to rising tensions between beijing and washington instead of urging for peace, ukraine gets even more war as the binding ministration has approved another $1000000000.00 and lethal aid, which is notably one of its largest packages so far. an apparent reminder that nations are only allowed to defend themselves when the u. s. as they can,
12:15 am
just as they are only allowed to pursue peace with their neighbor, if washington is on board with the plan. fresh footage, apparently showing cabs troops dropping a bomb on russian soldiers is spreading on pro ukrainian social media accounts. a warning you might find the following image is distressing. the unverified video appears to show the group moving in to retrieve what appears to be a body from the battlefield. a bomb is then dropped directly onto them from a drone. the soldiers are seen scattering from the effects of the blast, and it's not clear if any of them were killed, finish journalist anooj, both coban, who reports from the don best will, does that such military actions are aimed at provoking a tough response from russia. i continue and what we see here and what we have witnessed for 8 years, a series of publications against the russian population. and of course,
12:16 am
these kind of events, they are new for russians, but they are not the new year for us, for people of doing this and where we are, we have faith, all kind of publication. but this video was absolutely brutal, absolutely discussing. and, and of course, the case all was all moral and ethics. what can be, what we see here, what we have weakness here from the february that the russia is doing a very careful sticks, rary. oh li, meet the opperation with limited goals, and the other side is waiting a total war against russian population in russian communities. what they want is the roches. oh, the don't was. troops will re page such kind of trustees, and that is what they are waiting. so that they can do everything again upside down . meanwhile, ukrainian troops continued to intensively shall the diagnosed peoples republic
12:17 am
civil infrastructure. a recent video showing a furniture factory engulfed in flames following the attacks. according to local authorities, ukraine fired nearly 400 shells on monday, leaving 4 people dead and 14 others wounded. on the don. yes, front lines as rush and lead force as advanced towards the central city of o. glad are in the republic. our teeth collette algebra ari reports from their foreign positions. hi leon. british, i have thought that we are now traveling in the direction of oglethorpe. this grad missile defense system is ready to hit ukrainian positions in this direction after russian forces advanced into several strategically important areas. you have a figure i said, but on the field, on norwalk to him from you know, knew who dot officer be the blanket of calculations of being carried out and precious time is being spent on delivering targets. it strikes against the ukrainian forces which continuously shelling the don versus laura to go

home with the horrible, besought in the arly. yet the group is moving in high speed to complete the task before the location of the ground batteries discovered by ukrainian national forces . i am, the battery is firing at the positions of the armed forces of ukraine, and she quickly changes their location so as not to become a target of enemy forces somebody home. i will much glad that while the forces of the d. p r and the russian federation are moving towards oglethorpe. graph missiles are firing at ukrainian positions located in this direction because of the forces dpr in russian federation. and the city of pesky are moving further west storming to the fence of the armed forces of ukraine in the direction of oglethorpe, in order to liberate the entire territory of the dpr and dumbass in the near future . meanwhile, in africa, all eyes are on the canyon elections were poles have just opened,
12:19 am
as voters in one of the continents largest economies, choose a new president to bring a highly contessa brace to a close policy, clear reports from the ground. a melding station in kenya, around 22000000 people are eligible to vote in these elections with the issues, the caption, uncover, t, unemployment and corruption. the main reason as to why that when these a, what do they make? sure, one, they call them to test the speedy for, you know, accounting. secondly, we have unfortunately let's you, him, to have in mind that a pretty id will do. we are lacking that our country has been affected vastly by this a drug called corruption. corruption is what us kill to this country because you see we have a laurel view, my, a lot of natural resources in this country, but because the of it corruption antibodies, a slam where more than a 1000000 people survive on a dollar a day election posters,
12:20 am
the promising change every way that many posters complain it's the usual emptied promises from those vying for the top office. so who are the main faces in this race? to with the latest figures, give rayleigh, think the leader of the opposition, a clear lead? this is his good for the presidency and he's supported by the house going to place it in, or who kenyatta opposing him is william wooten who appeals to the masses of frustrated young people. most of them could just want to get ahead trays on his wags to which the story that he once sold chickens on the side of the road. and is to day one of the wealthiest men in the country. but it's not going to be as easy for the new president to solve the issues now will be, for example, is the largest and most important financial business and consultation had in east
12:21 am
africa with most of the trade destined for western countries. who had the unmarked kenya, not only as a vital trading partner, but also a source of stability in a volatile region, the race comes at an anxious time with the conflict in ukraine. the pandemic, the worst drought kenya has faced in 14 years and the waste looking in the background. we will see how the new president deals with all this on his shoulders . policy a r, t, nairobi, kenya. and for more insight, we now walk. i'm can bo see array a veteran canyon journalist who has covered its elections for years? can the selection is widely seen as being very important? what exactly is at stake here? i think so. thank you for having me. inter, again, this election isn't 11, it's one,
12:22 am
it's can yeah. democracy since the development of democracy in the train and it can change the tunnel while to push election. and then we a 1992. we now have what we call the constitution that we promote created in 202010. and this was opposed to entrench democracy in the country. so for us 1st it's this continues the entrenchment, naturally the democratic process because it's $992.00. we have had this election where we, having a president, something is coming, having is 310 yet junior and transition, living in transition to the next that we're going to to we had in 2013 and now 2022 . but this election is important because it comes up with a background where all aspects of the so surely can only complete for life been
12:23 am
tested. first, one of the issues that comes very strongly is the issue of the economy. the economy is really bad. the cost of living is high, and cooper looking up to the new government plan $60.00 and to the point where it's being reduced to basic food being much center for the basic food that he must have in employment because of they shrunk economy. because that was at the time they make and now the ongoing drought and, and other government and governance issues that have made it difficult for large hundreds of youth to remain unemployed. and so many other people's jobs in that. so economy economy will be a big issue in this, so they're looking up to every side of the political. the 2 main contenders, therefore, been trying to find a talk board comics cumulus to get something to boost the economy. they could crash,
12:24 am
production it down, and everything down to is the issue of governance in the 2010 constitution. it was trauma trying to build our democracy and the country welfare on institutions is then especially in the last 10 years been what appears to be a consistent attack on those institutions video institutions, but being given time to grow. and at some point, getting to a point where we do the executive, which is a time with them and trying to reclaim it from having them bearing in friends and on the other 3 gum invest element in the judiciary. so out of this governance used to have what corruption, something that has been bleeding this country for years in it wasting resources and cause a lot of frustration, a lot of government, public research,
12:25 am
the end up in people's private pocket. so this is a big issue. so how do we, the thing is, who is going to be fixing the economy? the other side of the creek is, i think, related to governance and the comic aspect is the social got the economy between the poor and the reach to really equity. the big issue in that country to many people at the lower end of the spectrum and to few people at the top and that is in balance is causing a little social stability in creating a anger. but these and then there is something that beyond the war in your credit or blame the boat, all these other things are, this is social and economic aspects. but to you still have we been the country lead, respected the law of a policy we've tended, for most people coming in to give promises that they never fulfilled bills of deals
12:26 am
of ground so frustration. this is what people are saying. the witnesses to this time, we are going to get it up, sir. sorry to interrupt, just real quick. i just wanted to ask you specifically about the 2 candidates, right? because the election pitts, deputy president, william, brutal against the opposition leader and former prime minister rylon o'denza. so what so specifically special about this rivalry? the reverie is been been a very, very, very we level in the country in the railroad, in a position the person was took up the official position to try and keep the government in check dentist all its excesses and use. but he ended up getting coopted in government. so bill watchdog and trailer is susan politician. this is his 5th stub. so he's making his left out of so it's like a do or die free for him to was part of the government that is going found himself
12:27 am
being sidelined and he's trying to justify what is wrong. he's trying to distance himself and making a very direct appeal to the vulnerable community. is that yet the bottom, especially the employment you? yes kind is election of this is a time that going by me. it was a book is that from the lowest and right, the top right last been associated with the democrats credentials and fight for democracy. so those 2 elements and then the mix of the president active involvement in support for the position again. this is patty riches ended up being kind of kind of relating itself that i mixed that heightened sticks. that one is coming with the phone credential, the other one coming up with what we are calling. i can provide a solution to i can on the course, but all of these the don't see the conveys at one point. none of them has
12:28 am
a clear path. there will be in the previous times at one time do it together. but know the fact that one is making his 1st job. the other one is making his 6 last tablet, the presidency, and the mix up of position. going into government being supported by the government, the president and the former deputy of the president, finding himself more or less than a police inside was having what we call addressing that it was pushed out so that i just the sticks. but what i find interesting this time is that we are having for the 1st time you can an electron to be practically not divisions. and it will be less stations on ethan is beginning to lower the point where we are having issues like the economy beginning to be the main domain. that aspect of this election. right. and i just wanted to ask, because can you is such an important hub for the why?
12:29 am
why given it's heavy ties with the west has the economy still become such a key issue? part of the, i think corruption, corruption has been the main thing. all the resources and then i think the manage, the mismanagement of what we, how we have utilized resources. and then on the whole we've not tended to pay invest more. is what we call the the key comic pillar like a re culture been let's, the summers are complaining about not having subsidies. so the reduce production. a lot of stuff that being important. in fact, the joke around town is the kind of huge supermarket for anybody who wants to come in that step. and all these big projects that don't seem to trickle down immediately. or they can remember in 20 the early 2000 and mid a quick shift. what's called, what was seen with a former president,
12:30 am
the timing east of that bunch of you know, that even when the west found itself deliver again and the west really after long association. can you needed to make kind of around and try and find what do up calling it know, make policy still close to the all the times of college? well, can both, sir. thank you. a veteran canyon journalist with years of covering the election. appreciate and that's all rot for this hour, but up next on our t key oven, it's western backers received some truly bad news. last week, amnesty international says ukraine's fighting tactics endanger civilians. the lensky and his gang are not the innocent victims of the media as portrayed. is the tide finally turning find out on cross hawk next sir. ah.
