7:03 am
emergency situations, goodbye drivers and what to do next. everyone has the same question. when will the ferry crossing be launched and what the tickets bryce will be? there is a small private gas station here where a q of several dozen cars is lying dog in the city. there is a rush for fuel. now, gasoline runs out very quickly, right in front of us at the gas station. they raise the price of gasoline by few rubles the bridge is the main trade connection between crimea and the russian mainland and the damage could see the peninsula face shortages of essential goods. but the head of the republic of crime is that a gay accent of reassured people that there is enough food on fuel in the republic for more than 2 months. the republic of crimea has plenty of fuel and food. we have more than a month's worth of fuel and more than 2 months worth of food. it was it that there are no risks or reasons for excitement at he's got with a check or john and me now live in the studio is our t correspondence. marina quarter. marina, thanks for your time today. now,
7:04 am
we don't know what exactly happened or who is responsible for this explosion on the crimean bridge. but can you tell me what ukraine's reaction so far has been this incident? well, what we see coming out of ukraine is excitement happening or celebrating that this happens. and if we take a look at some of the suites that ukrainian officials, not just the ukrainian ordinary citizens, but officials walk their post thing to them. this is like a birthday present birthday present for vladimir putin. if we go by one of them here we have the secretary of national security and defense council of ukraine. so he's post and good morning ukraine. and aside sort of marilyn monroe sing in there and look into that happy birthday because vladimir putin celebrated his 70th birthday recent me here. we have the 2nd one. and this is coming from the ukranian security service, where they say the bridge is burning well and great things from ukrainian armed forces. and then there's another one, both thing that i see,
7:05 am
the tory as symbols of russian power have gone down. this is from the ukrainian defense ministry. you can see it there and they're also sort of threatening what's next in line. ruth skis. in fact this sweets was then reposed that by the ukrainian embassy inlet the way nia. and we've seen a number of ukrainian embassies around the world, either re posting or posts and how happy they are, that this happened. we had a more neutral one coming from italy than we had one from georgia. and they posted that sweets over burned in bridge, and they said good morning we are with ukraine, basically supports and ukraine and supports and that this happened. well, let's have a look at some other tweets that came from the korean embassy and singapore. and the tech republic. crimean bridge is not at its best these days. the large explosion in massive fire was reported this morning along with the roadway section collapse and traffic suspension. crimean bridge is the one that connects temporarily occupied crimea with mainland russia, crimea, ukraine,
7:06 am
and all the fish are old and breach. umbilical cords will not take root here. so as you can see, there is excitements, there, re posting the photos of the burning bridge. we also now know about casualties. no one is mentioning that they're talking about there, about it, like it's some happy kind of events. and this of course is leaving moscow dumbfounded. i'm puzzled, because even though ukraine hasn't officially admitted that it's responsible behind it, we can see there is celebrations, online food, social media. and this is what the russian foreign ministry spokesman has the same response to all these tweets that we're seeing. the reaction of the key for him to the destruction of civilian infrastructure reveals its terrorist nature. so we've seen a bit of reaction from the ukranian embassies around the world, and obviously we just had to the russian foreign minister the. what about the why did international reaction to this incident on the crimea bridge? well, it's still early,
7:07 am
so we're expecting to hear more and more of the day progresses. but we've already heard from a sonia and i will have to say something like this and incident like this, especially with casualties happened anywhere, for example, in the united states or in israel, it would be unheard of to applaud such events. but let's see what a stoney is saying. i believe this target has been around for a very long time. is tonja certainly welcome space and congratulations, ukrainian special operations units who are expected to be behind the separation. so much for diplomacy. there were quite right now this was been going on for about 7 also months now. has there been any indication during that time this bridge would be targeted? absolutely, and it was heard that a number of times out of any pro russian region, or anywhere where people are support in russia or any region that voted to join. russia would become a target. and we heard that gotten all the way back to 2014,
7:08 am
but this past summer we actually heard from the ukranian presidential adviser and he said himself, rural c a just now that the bridge would become a targets his own words employed. we don't care about the crime in breach once we receive the necessary technical options, it will become a target for us, where there is nothing to discuss. we don't have an opportunity yet, but once we get it, we'll targeted just so i guess they found that opportunity and they did it. of course, again, the investigation is ongoing. we still don't know. we're waiting to see what the results of that investigation will be. but i just read already that ukraine 2nd largest bank, actually already issued a new debit card design featuring the collapse bridge. it's celebrations all around and ukraine as it was, that was certainly very quick. marina, thanks very much for being with the latest on the bridge and hope you bring us any more developments throughout the day as and when you get them. thank you will form a us marine john mark do. going to says the reaction from your credit officials to
7:09 am
the incidence isn't surprising. it certainly wouldn't surprise me. ah, if it was ukraine, or we've seen this all along from them. for years they've been bombing this civilians in the dumbass. and you know, now we have this and for anybody to be, for any heads of state. ah, that are going around. excited. that does kind of activities taking place it. sir, it shows you their mentality. i don't, i don't see it as an escalation point. i think that the, the west is considered this a legitimate target all along. and i, in fact the ukraine wanted to, ah, take it out a lot earlier. and now to the dumbass, where residential areas and civilian infrastructure of don, yet scar been showed by ukraine nuts, according to local officials. the this i'm at the footage shows. plumes of smoke
7:10 am
rising shortly after the strike. according to numerous reports, a local printing house on hall, so depot caught fire and several residential buildings were heavily damaged. not a desk officials claim that ukraine is continuing to use nato artillery investigations in so possible casualties are underway for the incidence in crimea. we're just talking about comes as ukraine's president is now back tracking on his comments, urging a preemptive nato strike on russia. he claims he was misunderstood. and i said, you have to do preventive kinks, nodded ex yahoo! just because i fish taught that amber g a t as in multiple and those do prevent unisons, intermediate of that as an attribute dumont, employees get gabled it. poor jim volume is de lensky insist that he was simply
7:11 am
urging the west to impose more sanctions claim in the kremlin is preparing society for the possible use of nuclear weapons. and he added that he would never call for nuclear armageddon as that would equate him to a terrorist. the wedding he is however, translates from ukrainian literally to preemptive strikes. russian officials say they are unconvinced by zalinski backtracking. busy oh, sure, when that ability, what should nato do and eliminate the possibility of russia using nuclear weapons? i once again appeal to the international community as it was before february 24th, as we need preemptive strikes so that russia would know what awaits them if they use nuclear weapons, not the other way around him to wait for rushes nuclear strikes and then say, oh, no, okay, then take this yog me after yesterday, zalinski called on his western masters to launch a preemptive nuclear strike on russian with this statement, he's essentially shown the whole world, more evidence of the threats emanating from the key regime,
7:12 am
which the special operation was launched to neutralize order the attempts by zalinski secretaries to claim that he meant something else. a ridiculous spitzer in these situations landscape with like his entire regime has got a taste and is beginning to dictate his own conditions. both in his nature and to the e. u. younger colon, you show of university legal and media unless line or says it's incomprehensible to even discuss nuclear threats. have we as a species forgotten? what nuclear conflict is? have we honestly do we need a refresher course into what we're talking about? i mean, i, i understand that we have various degrees of amnesia. tall story said history would be a wonderful thing if the were only true. but i'm hearing about this and i'm hearing about war and aggression as though we're playing some kind of a game. and i, i think this is insanity even to be discussing this cavalierly because also
7:13 am
it's not so much that a nuclear war could be triggered it or, or actually on directed, but things could be triggered. once this starts, there's no calling it back. you know, it's interesting, okay, added up. that was a mistake. that was a, that was a typographical mistake. i, i didn't really mean that this i, i can't believe, i'm frankly hearing when i'm hearing the winners of this is nobel peace prize. were announced on friday with you credit presence absent from the list. now he was nominated for the prestigious award by the european parliament back in march, which drew criticism from some quarters. the european parliament is proposing the president of ukraine as a candidate for the nobel peace prize. how is one of the actors in the war going to receive the nobel peace prize on there others who fight for peace? why not? pope francis or the u. n. director, there must be many others,
7:14 am
not to political price. it's a kind of nato nobel human rights prize. now, it's not a piece price, it's not a price. according to the will of alfred nobel. he wants it to be given to those who have quotation done most or best to advance fellowship among nations, the abolition or reduction of standing armies on the establishment and promotion of peace congress's. now, none of the 3 organizations have done anything like that. one of them have called for arms to your crime. none of the 3 organizations are not the to who received it last year or president zelinski were in any way mash, alfred, no bells will. and i'm a pool by the fact that many jan around the world do not ask, how can it come? how is it possible that this committee repeatedly can give the price to anything,
7:15 am
amend abolition, et cetera, which was outfit? no balance where this is a legal issue and should be investigated. how can you deliberately move away from amended and still be a legal organization? royal bike stop as that's how a u. s. republican lawmakers described a saudi arabia over. we had to move to reduce oil outputs, following the opec plus decision. although your officials are even calling for the president, the cutoff weapon supplies to the gulf kingdom. the saudis need us more for weapons than we need them. prison biden should make it clear that we will cut off weapons if upper class doesn't traverse the decision to make drastic costs and production in congress. we should also explore waste to rainy notebooks control over energy prices worldwide. the white house has long praised saudi arabia as a strategic partner studying the country. a large amount of weapons, despite joe biden was pledging to make a pariah. so
7:16 am
u. s. congress members are also calling for a rethink of the country's relationship with opec post members. with saudi arabia as actions be described as pos dial to washington. meanwhile, the saudi minister of state says that the us itself is to blame for rising gas prices. the idea that you do include would do this to harm the us or to be in any way politically involved this. absolutely not correct at all with due respect to reason. you have high prices in the united states because you have a refining shortage that has been in existence for more than 20 years. you haven't built refineries in decades. philosophies can morphine us more details on that decision by ria, as well as the us reaction to it? well, essentially we have opec announcing that they will be reducing the oil output by $2000000.00 barrels per day. now that is rattling the circles of power in the united states. there is quite a bit of outrage of the 2 days since the announcement already we're hearing the
7:17 am
leaders of saudi arabia being described as back stabbers, putting a night in the back of the united states. here's what we've heard from unanswered questions about 911. the brutal murder of journalist jamal cas shogi and the exporting of extremism to dubious jailing of peaceful dissidence in conspiring with vladimir putin to punish the u. s. with higher oil prices. the saudi royal family has never been a trustworthy ally of our nation. it's time for our foreign policy to imagine a world without this alliance with these royal back stabbers back stabbers. that is, the language being used to describe the long time ally of the united states, the kingdom of saudi arabia. and it appears that they consider this to be a humiliation of joe biden, at a, consider this to be hurting the economic interests of the united states. and apparently, the united states feels that it has rights over saudi arabia's oil. you'll recall economist magazine recently, i, you know, over the summer they tweeted out,
7:18 am
meet mohammed bin solomon, that's the count. brown, prince of south of saudi arabia, the millennial autocrat who controls our oil. now that tweet was deleted because it is not, they are oil, it is by right, the oil of the kingdom of saudi arabia, according to the constitution. but apparently, the united states feels it has some rights over it as do the british. now, at this point, what can the united states do, but rant and rave at the saudis for not doing what they want. hear some of what we've heard, what saudi arabia did to help put and continue to wage his despicable, vicious war against you. crane will long be remembered by americans. we are looking at all the legislative tools to best deal with this appalling and deeply cynical action. though the no peck bill is up for discussion. this is a bill that would allow the united states to sue opec countries, take them to court, possibly have you escort, seize their assets. if they don't do,
7:19 am
i want the united states wants that would allow our civil actions against opec countries by the united states in retaliation for move such as this. that bill is up for discussion. in addition to that, the military relationship between the united states and saudi arabia is being questioned. this is what's been said as well. i just don't see any good reason for us to maintain troops that are there almost solely for the purpose of protecting their oil fields. and their security interests. there's no question that muhammad been solomon, the crown prince of saudi arabia, shears putin's world view more than he shares ours. doesn't appreciate american advocacy for democracy in the world. now it's been 70 years that the united states has been aligned with the kingdom of saudi arabia. they've been one of the most loyal allies of the united states and nato in the region. i can recall after the 1979 iranian revolution, the reagan administration saying that they would never allows the to revolution to
7:20 am
take place in saudi arabia. that is a steadfast longtime partner of the united states. but now we're seeing the circles of power in washington, turning on them pretty rapidly in response to recent moves around opec people will recall the words of former us president george w bush, who said you're either with us or against us. and that kind of thinking seems to be prevailing in washington dc. why can't i by get american oil companies to increase the output? they just won't do it. because american oil companies are doing is raising prices at home to make up for this slowing of demand. well, it's the same thing that the saudis and opec are doing globally, you know, negotiate to go on right now between us, well, companies and biden, about exporting oil from the u. s. to europe. so, you know, that's going to cause more of a supply problem, u. s. and raise prices,
7:21 am
even more. prices are going up fast. the u. s. a. partly because the oil companies are shutting down to refineries. you know, they're not, they're having these a regular maintenance and then there's the so called fires and everything. and the real bottleneck is that the refining capacity. and that's been manipulated. i believe has nothing really different going on. except it's a good excuse to blame the saudis and opec instead of pointing to fleet or at the u . s. oil companies right before an election. meanwhile, energy has also been high on the agenda at an e. some, it's in prod, the blocks of foreign policy chief yourself, but else said that the opec plus decision to slash or production was response to a new e u. price cap, underlining that energy has become the main deal. political issue, luca dale begged, was their decision to decrease this supply of oil, which is a clear answer to our proposal to cap the price of oil. he means that energy is
7:22 am
becoming the most important jew strategic issue today related with the war, but also with the balance of power in the world. dozens of e u and are the leaders gathered in the check capital on thursday, the new political community format. so to discuss security and energy among the topics, however, efforts to find common ground on issues such as a price cap and for the anti bush in sanctions appear to have failed. artie contributor rachel marston has more there were 44 countries united discussing the challenge herself today. and it showed how much russia isolated by now the new e u political community and invention of french president emanuel mac holds, consisting of the 27 nations block. and 17 other countries most of which aspire to join the e. u has just wrapped up is inaugural p. r. exercise in prague. now the whole point
7:23 am
of this event in prague, prague castle seem to be to convince onlookers of european unity particularity in favor of ukraine. and against russia, while papering over any other cracks in the solidarity facade. it. so the kind of thing that's been happening a lot lately within the, you know, we all know people like this in our own lives. they arrive at the party. it's all lovey dovey, kissy kissy and you know, darn well that in the car just before they got there. they had a huge blow up all just this week. for example, as brussels adopted 8 round of anti russian sanctions. belgium in italy sat on their hands as brussels band, semi center steel products from russia, despite knowing full well the hit that their own steel industries risk taking as a result. so they just kind of towed the line but likely aren't thrilled about it. so during this summit, craps did show none. the less turkish president air to one used his platform to
7:24 am
lash out at greece over their territorial disputes in the region and accused the you of supporting illegal activities masquerading is unity or solidarity. so he didn't mince words there. the block is upset with norway for maintaining high energy prices and profits. amid the gas crunch caused by brussels auto sanctions. german economy minister robert havoc brought up the issue of so called friends like the u. s. and norway exploiting e u countries desperation through price gouging. earlier this week, french president, michael used his summit platform to repeat his opposition to building a new gas connection between spain and france, which germany really wants. because it would allow cheap gas from north africa to flow into neighboring you countries and germany as well. but let's face it, france would lose a market in the long run for its l. n. g plans. if it supported the project,
7:25 am
you k prime minister list trust was also in attendance and made a point of calling michael a friend. even though just weeks ago, she said that the jury is out on whether he's a friend or foe for brittany. but here it was, all smiles, kind of, she doth protest too much. perhaps the polish prime minister didn't miss the opportunity to pick yet another fight with germany. you showed, with a year to day, we often talked about the algorithm of germany. it clearly shows that it cannot be the case that the european unit energy policies being dictated by germany. poland also decided recently to demand reparations from germany for world war 2. and now greece is also seeking hundreds of billions of euros from germany for both world wars, $1.00 and $2.00 for the greek government and the greek society. this issue, reparations from germany, remains open and its resolution, which is primarily a matter of principle, i think will be beneficial for all the countries and vault and the e. u. s. such,
7:26 am
yes, it doesn't really matter than germany has been doing the heavy lifting for both of these net recipients of you funds as the blocks primary economic engine. and now berlin, which is staring down the barrel at d industrialization and rationing from you. energy sanctions isn't exactly in the best position to be stuck with bills to right. historical ross, italy was recently chastised by none other than european commission. president ursula vander line. the almighty queen of europe, herself just before voting in a populous government. so now italy finds itself teetering on the edge of pariah status at b. e. u. alongside that other perennial pariah hungry whose prime minister had this to say about brussels performance. russia has not been brought to it's nice at all . while european economies sa, bleeding out, it is evident that the policy of sanctions must be changed. so despite it tends to project unity in prague, there's a lot more going on beneath the smiles in the class photo from this particular
7:27 am
summit was senior research fellow of the global policy institute of london, george. some really explains the difficulties at the summit. lot of these sessions, they have no real purpose. no, i mean, you know, the, so many of these kinds of forums in here would be in council the european parliament, european commission. oh, i see. so now that come up with a new one, the european political community, and the invention of a man, a well mack wrong. and that doesn't seem to be any well with other than what we're still f one there. lion declared, which is what will rule against russia, we will hate russia. and that that seems to be them mantra. they will nothing else to say. there's no agreement on anything. so there's no decision on what to do in the future. but we're all united in hating russia. the timing on is not exactly great, particularly one who select from their lion. keeps talking about european unity and
7:28 am
suddenly poland and greece. i'm bringing up issues from 75 years ago and was bringing us like issues. oh yeah, i can have no, you're going to possible quantitative outcome, mind sure, because germany is not going to say anything from illustration for the steps against russia also discussed on the side lines of the forum with a suggestion coming from poland. prime minister, he claimed that russia's frozen assets in europe should be divided. this some of them going to walsall las because i am, i have pointed out one source that is relatively easy to obtain in terms of resources. the frozen assets of the russian oligarchs, and the russian federation. lease assets, amount to approximately 350000000000 euros. and today these funds can be used for the benefit of ukraine, which should be rebuilt with the spotty, which could also be used for the nice of you and polish residence. i don't
7:29 am
understand how poland can justify that their enterprise is that their companies get some part of that money. why then it will come up immediately from the baltic states from but check republic, slovakia, hungary and the countries germany probably wouldn't dare do it. bit of a conscious will say, what about us, what about our companies? so this is an ill fated this request from ball. it won't work sorry, missed the prime minister. you know, i, i don't think it will work. it will be on not the pickering dispute within the 27 european countries to know who will get what money will that sits your bank up to date. so with all the latest news from around the world, do feel free to check out our website for more stories and analysis. i'm piece of scott's and i'll be back in 30. thanks for watching with
