when i took the trip to russia, and this was all the stakeholders, why on board? the idea was that we would improve our relationship with russia. and we would, you know, we have trading links with russia. we want to improve the trading links. we're already, we're a pipeline, a gas pipeline and was, was being planned 56 years back before i came to power. so we wanted to cement that contract and then we wanted to buy cheaper oil from, from russia, as well as wheat. 100000000 budget sundays of hon. 50000000 below the poverty line. 50000000 just above the poverty line. when the prices go up, when inflation bites in western countries, they only, they just have a drop in the standard of living in the country. people go below the poverty line,
11:06 am

11:07 am
past 24 hours among the troop fatalities were said to be more than $200.00 reserve soldiers who were targeted in a strike on the shop, lino release station nuts in the southeast of ukraine. on wednesday, kia claimed at least $25.00 civilians were killed and more than 30 injured enough. strike on the railway station, which had blamed on moscow. russia has repeatedly stressed it does not. target civilians allows russian and allied forces advance on the territory. all that done yet. republic, the ton of d. f. k. one of the main i posts of ukrainian fighters is currently being encircled . now it is a strategic point. as cube is accused of regularly shelling done yet. can other tons from positions there are correspondent, eager shit down of reports from the frontline where a crew came under artillery fire. ah. right away,
11:08 am
the village of elk grove sca wipes out any doubts. it is still very much a front line. we're here to join in a lead rush and special ops unit supporting the offensive on this part of the front . with study venue says affordable ukrainians abandoned their positions as always in a hurry. they threw away all of their inventory. you can see a 4 made jacket here. madison's 1st aid kits, and over here is their fortification trench. so the main purpose of this fortified area, just outside the village of krakowski, was to north allow this village to be encircled from the south. now also this position was where the ukrainian forces tried to briefly gain a foothold after it was clear that the village itself had fallen. we are quite
11:09 am
literally treading on ag shows. here. upon abandoning this position, ukrainian troops rigged the whole area. they used cluster munitions to scatter hundreds of anti personnel mines all over the place. such munitions are explicitly bound by the geneva convention. the blast is more than enough to tear one's foot right off zap as have their hands full extracting anti tank minds to russian motors and how it says he abound enemy positions around the clock. ukraine's artillery pulls no punches either. something that we witnessed 1st hand with yet keith troops efforts to stool rushes advance proved to be futile with the main fighting, already engulfing the streets or to
11:10 am
a mosque august dawn of reporting from the dawn bass. r t. well, staying with the region they petrov ski district that's been done yet has been shell by ukrainian forces with anti personnel mines. it's according to local officials who said the attack occurred on wednesday. it's not the 1st time keith has been accused of using mines benz on international law. at their reported regular use on the front lines and dunbar saw rally in moscow, which was aimed at bringing international attention to the issue. one of those who saw the protest was a brazilian artist who then created a work showing the menacing nature of the explosive. carlos latour says his intention was to highlight war crimes being committed on the most vulnerable law is the purpose of my work was to show the civilian population, the danger of these explosive devices, the dot, the cities,
11:11 am
their inhabitants are the 1st victims of mines, especially children, and the elderly, or international treaties regulating the production and use of these mines, in my opinion, they should be completely band. i believe that the use of these mines in cities is a war crime. there are clear examples in history, cambodia, and angola that a greatly from these mines, even after the end of the was they continue to operate, is time to decide which side you're on. it's important to understand what's at stake. you can't stand aside, i quite clearly understand that russia was pushed into this conflict. this is the fault of nato expansionism. it was necessary to create a certain situation which was done in ukraine in order to put pressure on russia, push it into conflict, justify western sanctions, and attacks on russia as during the cold war. u. s. congress members have been asked to approve a significant financial aid package for the improvement of human rights and india.
11:12 am
the biden administration requests $117000000.00 in foreign assistance to india for the financial year of 2023. congress could consider whether or not condition, so all of such aid on improvements in human rights and civil liberties in india. both requests was made a month after you said chief samantha power travel to new delhi where she said, quote, india's civil society. it's free press, free speech and free association, or worthy of emulation by other countries. there's also no mention of india's human rights policies when power praised india's important and covering regional challenges like china. this point i russia, as well as cross to the former foreign secretary of india. conwell, said bol for his take. you're most welcome, sir. so the u. s. is seeking to spend its own money on improving human rights in
11:13 am
india. how is that going to go down in, in daily will not be seen as insulting by authority. when i really don't know how they want to spend this money in the cost of this money. and we will give this money to because we have a well established rules and regulations regarding foreign money coming into india to and deals and other things. and if this money is intended for a critical purpose, then i don't think our rules will allow this. so this is a bit of a shock that is going on in the u. s. congress. because there always, people in the congress will respond to local pressures from certain sources. and want to take the lead in order to garner garner more money from the situations for the elections. and this sort of thing goes on as you know, the u. s. senators really often believe that individually,
11:14 am
the many, that all the world and then ship that addiction which the world would go there with tremendous sense of what is i can tell you in terms of in the united states for there are some people also, i'm not saying all of them are that are moved by lobby's, that there is no larger consideration of how these things will impact on relations with foreign countries. and all this is the skills on the basis of separation of powers as thing point and yeah, absolutely. another aspect of this i would suggest the question can well, does washington have the moral standing to be able to rule on other countries in the, in this case is there are human rights records. you see there are a lot on for these organizations like georgia photos, the photos in society foundation and, and, and years like that will have made it their business to promote democracy and human
11:15 am
rights all over the world that they target to well. and then in addition to that, i must say that there are, these are strong, islamist lobbies who danley is the so called minority issues because by minority always referred to muslim minorities in countries. and they have a certain influence locally they, they, they, they put pressure and then some of their congressmen, the actor to this there is a also the and i must say, and i'm be surprised how the u. s. breast actually works very negatively in terms of formulation. with the countries that they have it talk about freedom of expression, actually it is not freedom of expression. they work very closely with certain lobbies and they have an agenda there, they are financed. accordingly. they are given information and says they have an
11:16 am
international reach. the more that the narrative against country that they're doing against the side present and against india on the issue of all human rights and the fact that india is no longer a full democracy and that we don't respect my losses. i deleted it. look at the record of the united states and europe. i am not even talking of colonialism the manner in which they totally exterminated the indigenous population where they go, that it indians in the united states or the aborigines in australia. and of course, the criminal enterprises of the colonial power in the 3rd world over centuries. now they will take a moral high ground to say that they are the defenders of human rights. look at the usual, this is, i mean i have been able to solve my 1st 10 to their own problems. look at the shooting that list constantly in schools, in mall, in st. innocent people are being killed. children are being killed,
11:17 am
but there's no conscious of this. even if some other countries. yeah. and point out all these things the united states did not dare don't control the international net . this information is controlled by the west and his agency, unfortunately. and that is why other gonna do that all within the receiving end. okay. and just finally, in terms of the, the timing of this am samantha powers statements the, the money wanting to come from and want it to be sent by washington at to india. why such a sudden change of tune in a month do thank you see, the administration largely understands the importance of relations between the and the united states. the fact of the matter is that the united states in india is biggest apartment in so many demands. and the united states are absolutely needs india for any in the pacific status. and if the goal is to have any shelf life,
11:18 am
then they cannot afford to ignore the annoy or sidetrack sideline india. they have who, how sincere this, it is a long lasting. this is a matter that we will judge as time goes by. so there is a tension between what the administration thinks about the importance of relations with india and the lobbies and your lobbies. monday, the so called democracy that lobbies called is freedom house and things like that which are actually in the hands of the cia and so and what you call a deep stick. so they work very often at cross purposes and it healthy, administered these newspapers. and you'll see all this because this, the d n a point of pressure on india and then 40 in the to be a little more comedy in order to so he's a kind of us in the game that goes on. very interesting, always top notch analysis. when you're in the program can was about former foreign
11:19 am
secretary of india speaking to us today life. thank you sir. thank you. ah, war between russia and the united states could lead the world into nuclear winter. that's the conclusion of a group of american scientists who released the paper calling for the urgent need for global cooperation. according to their research, more than 5000000000 people would die. now as a result of conflict between the 2 countries, nuclear war and their words would be hard to avoid the u. s. allies and russia possess more than 90 percent of the global and your arsenal. similar warnings also recently came from the u. n. chief who said she manatee is just one misunderstanding away from nuclear annihilation. let them her person meanwhile, said in the case of a nuclear war, there can be no winners. while i am delighted to say that say we can discuss the subject with the scientists behind the research. joining us climate scientists,
11:20 am
dr. alan roebuck on utmost ferric, scientist, professor bryan tune. you're both very welcome gentlemen. thank you for your time today. bryan, can we prop start with you the findings of your research? frankly, as is terrifying. did you expect the conclusions to be as extreme as they were? no, i didn't expect you to repeat this extreme. this is the 1st time we've ever looked at the agricultural losses from the climate disaster that would occur after a nuclear war on a country by country basis. and what you see is if there are certain countries that are more severely affected than others, mostly just because they're at higher latitudes. so for example, russia suffers greatly and so as candidate, because they're at high latitudes. and even though russia chandler both major weak producers and mays producers, rushes are agriculturally powerful country and also has
11:21 am
a short growing season because this latitude and so it cools even more because a lot of smoke in the atmosphere from burning cities after nuclear war, agricultural basically we've studied, for example, the daily temperatures in a place like crane, which is a bigger red grass that of europe at once. the worst stars addressed to the freezing and there is no day for more than 2 years in which there is not a daily minimum temperature below freezing. so you're not going to grow anything in that situation. and we find in russia, for example, that 98 percent of the population to probably die of starvation by 2 years after the beginning of central war. and it's really hard to get your head to run those kind of figures that kind of statement, isn't it a quarter of the report, dr. alan roebuck also on the panel with hi, alan. you've been looking at the nuclear winter thesis for for decades. i think i'm
11:22 am
right in saying, how did the latest revelations differ from what's come before we've known for we have known for decades. and brian was one of the pioneers of this. the temperatures were global. ready freezing if the enough smoke was put into the atmosphere from fire started by nuclear weapons. but we've never looked at how, specifically it would affect food production in each country around the world. so that's what we've done that snow. we've looked at it every country. it's not just everything would. ready freeze, if you're near the ocean or in the southern hemisphere, there would be less cooling than there would be in the middle continents, like russia and united states. understood, assigns allen like significant research, which should get a maximum exposure. just so people understand. and you can explain it how dangerous at the rhetoric, by threatening to use nuclear weapons is high. has it been received?
11:23 am
we've got a lot of press coverage. and so we're happy about that. we calculate how many people would die from the direct effects of the nuclear war. the horrific effects we already know about a blast. ready radioactivity and fires, but the number of people that would die from starvation far removed from any bombs will be dropped, was more than 10 times the number of direct effects. this is lead the most of the countries of the world to try and pressure the 9 countries with nuclear weapons to ban the weapons to get rid of them because they know they will suffer even if no bombs are dropped there. the nonproliferation treaty negotiations are just ending today in or tomorrow, i guess in a in new york at the united nations. and the question is, what will be the final statement. ready of the 9 nuclear nations, including the u. s. and russia, make a commitment to reduce nuclear weapons and go on with article 6 of this treaty, which they've been ignoring for a while. i went to the united nations last week and gave
11:24 am
a talk about our work and i hope that us has some influence on on them. but we'll see. oh brian on that, that similar point. and have you find that that restricts wasn't totally being welcomed as well and has it come from just within at the u. s. i know that alan mentioned to you in there, are you seeing a similar pattern elsewhere? i think many people are paying attention to this. for example, this is not just a us russian nato issue. here are other countries like pakistan and india that are constantly in conflict or cashmere. and they both have a substantial nuclear arsenals that we expect by the end of the decades of those countries all have about $250.00 nuclear weapons. and we find that if india and pakistan had a conflict and nurtured 50 nuclear weapons about half of the arsenal,
11:25 am
we expect by the end of the decade, if 250 cities in india and bangs never attacked the, the smoke from that would likewise kill probably more than half of the russian population just from starvation. so this is not just a u. s. nato russia problem. it's, it involves the entire world and all these countries have to have nuclear weapons and needs. this resolved their problems without having a nuclear conflict. and in fact, the president of pakistani cashmere cited our work about a year ago as a reason for pakistan in indian not to have a nuclear conflict over the tensions they were having at that time. which involved in bombing on each side of the boundary. and brian, then what, why is this not wide spread? why is this not till t i 30 yet this information i think it was very well known in the 1980s
11:26 am
during the cold war. but when the cold war ended, i think everybody thought a piece of broken out in the world and that a country would solve their problems through diplomacy instead of by attacking each other. and so people thought that we would live in a global society in which people were profiting from being at peace. you can look around the world and see countries at work and not do well it. it hurts them. it's better to be at peace and develop your economy isn't to fight each other. so people thought the problem had been solved than the 1990 s. and in fact, in the mid 19 eighties. there were so many meetings between the soviet union i states and, and those 2 entities agreed to start going down nuclear weapons and other number of weapons has fallen over 70000 of them 986. now there's about $13000.00 of them.
11:27 am
every american president has reduced the arsenals. every russian president, our leader, has reduced their arsenals. so we have many of your weapons and we did have are only 500 cities in the united states and russia, with more than a 100000 people combined 500 cities in between, then the united states and russia have 4000 deployed nuclear weapons, sitting on missiles and submarines are in silos. 4000 nuclear weapons, 500 cities. that means each city in russia, each city in the united states, with more than a $100000.00 people can be attacked by 8 who clear weapons. ok, no, it is a nuclear weapon to destroy a whole city. yeah. yeah, alan and just to continue what you're seeing earlier. i was looking at some of the notes before the interview is it is an extreme on my part to say it looks like there's some sort of campaign to this credit. your work is not too far to say. i
11:28 am
think so. there was one paper written by a group from the los alamos national laboratory, claiming that the amount of smoke that we got for india pakistan war would be much less, but they made assumptions that would, there were wrong that would reduce the amount of smoke they didn't use as much fuel, they bombed a golf course in atlanta rather than a city. they didn't allow water to condense and pump the smoke up as happens in a cloud. and so the assumptions were, and we pointed that out and wrote a paper commenting on and pointing out their errors, but that's the only one there's. there's a group at another nuclear weapons, love that livermore, in united states who repeater i work in and found the same result. so i don't see it as a campaign. okay. and also alan, we've heard reference to the big nuke cartilage. do you think that's a fair description of the i sat, some fat people,
11:29 am
actors who want to keep these lethal weapons in production and i'd really, whatever cost. i think, you know, president eisenhower warned about the military industrial complex. there are people that build weapons. there are people that in the military that are in charge of them, and i think both in russia and united states, their careers will continue if the fear and the conflict a continuance. and so i don't understand why the u. s. and rush each have thousands of weapons. if you think you can use nuclear weapons to deter somebody, you'll have to put one on the capital of your enemy. so why do you have thousands, every other country with nuclear weapon has a few hundreds. so why don't the u. s. in russia get down to a few 100 right now and then work together to get rid of the rest of them? brian, who benefits from nuclear proliferation? no one benefits from nuclear proliferation. and since it's a waste of money noted,
11:30 am
stacy rebuilding as nuclear arsenal. people have different aspects of the cost, trillion dollars rush is building up all kinds of new weapons. no one benefits from that in the weapons can't be used. they just sit in the ground rotting, so it's like taking money and sewing and on the ground and carina, you know why? why don't we use the money for something beneficial? like, you know, we're developing new energy sources to get around the gold climate problem, or educating our citizens or making people who have less money than others, more equitable. there's lots of things we could do besides just building uses weapons that will never be used can ever be used and if they were use it would destroy the civilization across the earth. allen, just to some final thoughts, maybe from both the starting with 1000 just to put a point q. if we take the u. s the country has a, as a 1st strike policy and the president has around 6 minutes to make a decision whether to launch a nuclear strike. i put it to you. hi ra.
