2:07 am
known here as chair knows them, it's highly fertile, and it's what makes this country a major player in global agriculture markets. here at agro complex a 2 hour drive from give about $18000.00 tons of corn, wheat, rice, sawyer, barley and sunflower are produced every year from which to mel. service him rock. you know what? because we are in a state of war. we had to switch suppliers and we used to rely on russia for spare parts of fertilizer and diesel. we also faced problems because of the occupation of don bass and crimea. so if there is a full scale invasion, it will be a disaster for every one or what we can't focus on this now. but about 70 percent of each year's harvest head to the black sea port of odessa and
2:08 am
from there to consumers around the world. ukraine is one of the major exporters of grain in the world. actually this farm alone exports about 70 percent of its production. so any disruption here. good to have a huge impact on global distribution and supply. last year, ukraine produce about a 100000000 tons of grain. only 25 percent went to the local market. the rest made its way to asia, the middle east and africa. ukraine's wheat accounts for half of all wheat consumed in lebanon, 43 percent in libya, and 22 percent in yemen. and ukrainian barley represents nearly a 100 percent of saudi arabia's barley imports and about 50 per cent of egypt needs . some of these countries are economically battered and are ready, suffer food shortages phrases went up due to the corona virus pandemic.

2:13 am
particularly coastal areas. we've got weather systems moving into the west of canada, bringing some heavy snow to british columbia. and some of that wet weather is going to trickle down into the north west pacific. but further south of this, look at that, plenty of fine, dry weather. a lot of warms coming into places like san francisco and los angeles, and it's a similar story for much of the south. it's that east coast, however that where we're seeing much of the action, you can see that storm system swirling its way up north is going to bring some heavy rain to the likes of george or the carolinas as well as virginia. and we are expecting sleep snow and some freezing rain from new york on monday. that clears by tuesday is going to make its way to eastern areas of canada and places like nova scotia. but it remains rather wet for much of florida. we could see some flooding here, and those showers join up some heavy rain that slightly to sweep into the bay of can pitcher in mexico. by the time we get to choose day, some of that heavy rain pulling across the yucatan peninsula. but for places like

2:15 am
ah, ah, watching all jazz, there are a reminder about top stories. this all. the u. s. continues to reinforces military bases in eastern europe, but phase of a russian invasion, if you create the kremlin denies it, it has any such plans. meanwhile, ukraine is toni down the thresh of russian troop presence along its border, and is calling for a diplomatic solution. supporters of 2 museums. gov, would it be demonstrating against the supreme judicial council? it was dissolved by president to call you sides. i need says the body has be biased and not resolved. important cases, like the assassination of a left wing politician, a confidential un report claims north korea has stolen tens of millions of dollars with
2:16 am
a crypto currency to help fund its nuclear and ballistic missile program. the report says, be on get install more than $50000000.00 of digital assets through cyber attacks between 2020 and mid 2021. the separate study says as much as $400000000.00 may have been netted. north korea conducted 9 ballistic missile test. last month, let's bring in jim anderson, he's a tech expert and c o of social flow. he joins us now from york. thanks for your time. jim. the very nature of crypto currency means that your wallet, we'll crypto with health and transferred to will from it's actually not linked to your identity. so how did investigate this? figure out that it was north korea, which was hacking these crypto accounts, or exchanges. we know it's interesting in many ways, crypto currency, the criminals, dream or a rogue nation. if you want to look at it that way because it is anonymous and you can't find it. but the very fact that it's not backed by a government means it must be traceable. and so you, for example, you have $100.00 bill life it's, it's got
2:17 am
a serial number on it. but good luck trying to understand who's used that $100.00 bill crypto currency, it's actually traceable. and your anonymity is dependent on you getting it right every single time. if you're not enough for a 1000 transactions and you slip up just one time, then all the sudden, not just the transaction you slipped up on every single prior transaction is no longer anonymous. so i think it's a lot less ideal for a rogue nations or criminals than you might think. so what you're saying is that these hackers must have slipped up at some point on the anonymity chain. yeah, and i am, it is very hard to preserve it. yeah. and you think about it, i mean we've got fiber hackers coming from north korea. you've got intelligence agencies from the west. so i'm sure there's a cat and mouse game that goes on every single day where people are trying to change their identities. and people are trying to figure them out. so it's just being deployed a global scale around a type of currency they've never really been possible before. is in the block chain itself, which is big hacked or is it the lack of security of companies who are using crypto
2:18 am
currency encrypt exchanges? i just kinda wanna understand where the vulnerabilities here. i strongly suspect it's with the users. so when you talk about these exchanges, if i have cropped up currency in an exchange and i have to log in, what do i have to use? i have to use a username and password and that is almost always the biggest point of vulnerability you. you launch a fishing attack against me. i don't really realize that i give you my credentials . i mistakenly log into what i think is my crypto current exchange. but it's that it's, it's a server hosted by somebody malicious all the sudden they have my username and password. and within minutes if not, seconds, you know, they can drain my wallet, transfer that crypto current to somewhere else that i can't get. and again, it's, it's not backed by a government, so it's, it's very effective once they've hacked and gotten your credentials. and i strongly suspect that that's a big, big portion of how they've managed to do the facts. are there any way that governments can clamp down on this? i mean, obviously not all government worldwide pro crypto currency. many of them want to
2:19 am
keep their own digital currencies front incentive. but obviously they do have they are going to want to stop north korea from, from getting these kinds of funds for these sorts of things. so is there any way that governments can clamp down? yeah, i think it's going to be a losing battle for government. the appeal of crypto currency for many people is that it's not backed by a government. and so almost by definition, if you get into bitcoin or another crypto currency, it is outside the realm of the government. now that doesn't mean you as a citizen of a particular country are not obligated or bound by their law. you might actually be violating law depending on what you do with your crypto currency, money laundering, for instance. there are plenty of money laundering laws, so you're probably the best thing that governments can do is try to take their existing laws, adapt them to a world where there are crypto currency that they can't necessarily control, like their own currency and, and make sure that you know when people are exhibiting criminal behavior that they have the legal tools to go after them. all right,
2:20 am
thank you very much for that to jim anderson. there. theo of social flow now protest isn't the least unusually see eye to eye, but in the netherlands have got one thing in common. they've taken the same route for valleys through the streets of rotterdam, but for different reasons. thousands of demonstrators have been out showing their anger of the dutch governments coven 19 restrictions, and vaccine mandates. and the police are on strike, demanding more money to deal with those kinds of protests. step bronson has more, for most of them. most number restrictions have been lifted here in the netherlands in the last couple of weeks, but thousands of people here on the streets on route to that, saying they want their freedom back. people from the fire brigade, i hear people from all walks of life. many here are and to the fact seems, but also people from the far right, but also people who are vaccinated, but they say they don't want the divisions in society because of a q r code, half a 1000000 people in the madeline have not got their booster shot,
