1:09 pm
started to change ever since 2014, when russia next 1st crimea. and then with all that done, best war had that has been ongoing, ever since. there has been a split between these 2 churches, the russian patriarchy real, fully endorsing the political rhetoric coming out of the kremlin, that ukraine and russia just one people, one country separated by a fake, a border, also fully endorsing this war, saying it is to liberate the russian speakers of ukraine, the ethnic luncheon of the crane and venus, if i you create well, that has angered this church here because the ukrainian church ever since the war started has been a providing humanitarian aid for civilians has been overseeing the funeral of all the soldiers who have died in this conflict actually on the wall outside of this monastery of this church raderts. it's a kind of
1:10 pm
a large complex. you have all these pictures of a soldiers who have died in the conflict ever since 2014. so it is a very, at the moment, a lot of tensions between these 2 church do ukrainian church wanting to get more and more independence and the people we spoke to came here this morning. not only people from give weather, as i said, people from are you put a woman who just arrived a few days ago from the la guns region where it is heavy fighting ongoing? well, they at the moment said that they had been traditionally going to the russian church, which still exists here in, in ukraine. but ever since this war started in february, they have been more and more backing the ukrainian church and the ukrainian branch, and many would tell you that they would like to see death indian become independent from moscow. thank you for that hard abdel. how made life or say in keys while russia is not letting up on its bombing campaign in easton ukraine,

1:33 pm
ah, plugin you're watching al jazeera live from do how with me fully back to go a reminder of our top stories on this news. our voters in france the choosing the next president for right challenge remainder pen has cast her ballot in northern france incumbent emmanuel, my coin is hoping to win a 2nd term early numbers show turn out. i just 26.4 percent down to 2 point down 2 points from 2070 ukraine's president has again call for a meeting with vladimir putin to stop the war. ruiz lensky says the u. s. secretaries of state and defense are expected in cave on sunday, and more now on our top story and the presidential run off in france. joining us now from paris is victor mallet, was the paris bureau chief for the financial times. thank you very much, victor,
1:34 pm
for being with us on the al jazeera news. our so let's talk about the turn out figures 1st. turn out at mid day report it to be at 26.4 percent lower than at the same time in 2017. what would a low turnout suggest for the final result? he think yeah, it's pretty much in line. i mean the. ready both those kinds actually were worried about the possibility of a low tech. i don't think at this stage is enough of the kind of interesting number that make a difference from the side as far as we can tell. basically, a lot of people are either staying or writing blank, which is costing a ballot with no name on it because they don't like either of the candidates because they can't be bothered to. but that has been a characteristic of selections for quite a while. and i think that would concern lot of people concerned that the 10 would be even lower, but it looks kind of moderately ok compared to previous collection. right. i know
1:35 pm
pen when would require an extraordinary late shifts, right. but could it, could we be in for a surprise in your you'd like like the breaks it referendum or donald trump selection in the us in 2016. yeah, i mean that's, that's exactly the question that we're all we journalists and indeed i think, you know, financial markets. but he's asking, it's very unlikely, but not impossible. i think that, you know, the opinion polls have been pretty consistent and they microns lead has been widening in recent days since the race was narrow down. and so it would definitely be quite a big you know, turnaround in an opinion. and i think it's unlikely it's not impossible if it did happen, it would be, you know, even more surprising than the election of donald trump because the, the shift and the opinions showed through the pose and what actually would be would be much more extreme. so i think most of my cross, steve,
1:36 pm
and i'm pretty confident that he will win this, but obviously that i want to say thanks a bunch of course, let's talk about my reading the pen. the far right candidate. she's promoted ultra conservative views, but she also put forward he can make policies aimed at helping those who are struggling, which perhaps help explains her popularity right now. so just how white wing is she on economic policies? for example, many of her proposals would be considered left of center wouldn't yeah, that's right. i mean, it's the kind of, it's, you know, a lot of people are saying micro and the pen said this is no longer a battle that the left and right. but the visual part is that the nice of kind of pull them by the wayside. the socialists and the republicans both got less than 5 percent. so they didn't get most of that campaign of spending back from the state
1:37 pm
and both sides actually a marine, the pen and a man in my crime. this is a kind of bible between liberal internationalists and the nationalist michael or national it, you know? so marina pan goes around, accusing a micron, being a global list, and he will call her as a reminded nation that so i think it's true or economic policies are not particularly you know, right. weighing, i mean, obviously the reason she's called extreme right is because of her policies on immigration, nationality and identity and towards islam. not not ready because you can even my crowd is considered by the french people to the right waiting or center right on. you can only see, actually during the 19th pandemic, the enormous quantities of state cash and but to the budget, as did many companies around the world. you know,
1:38 pm
those are not ready traditionally sort of center, right? you can make the orthodox policies, but they found it necessary in time prices. so in a curious way and the reason on the economic front, the disagreement would really be with how you're promising. always ask people, but you haven't calculated the cost directly and for your call, it is not credible. and then not even policies and reading the pen will say, you know, that micro is firing the rich and not doing enough to help or help them with the custom building, which is a lot would be the war and ukraine and okay, rise in the process. you and thank you so much victor. mileage for speaking to a survey. this victor mallet is the parish spiritual for the financial times. as we look at these live pictures now from the northern town of lou, 2 k on the north coast of france, the incumbent emanuel, my call about to cast his ballot at a little care. right now, my la pin has done so already earlier in our a minute. my call is about to cast his vote,

required for those he is on it. we cannot produce like this. all of us end up renting or forums because small scale farmers end up renting their long term international corporations who can afford to bear that enormous talks. birds are, we have a food prices are rising worldwide driven up by the war in ukraine. this has put argentinean producers on alerts. farmers say taxes, export. taxis, drought and exchange rate controls are hurting their capacity to produce and fear the government could increase taxes even more. thousands of people accompanied the farmers to the center of a city to protest against the administration of about up. if i remember they say they're tired of the inflation rate. it was close to 7 percent last month, end of the difficulties they pay every month. they're saying that the government has no economic plan and they will grow chrissy and the restrictions implemented by the administration. 2 hurting and argentina's productive saturday. last march,
1:41 pm
the government increased export taxes on soybean flour, annoying seeking to control local prices and stabilize the price of wheat to what it was before ukraine's conflict. it also says farmers are overreacting and there are no plans to increase export taxes again, at least for now. yeah. but you can also order that the on it have an increased export taxes on the producers. so they're marching just in case they're marching against the project. it on no or imagined could happen. so we have no doubt this is a political demonstration that the has to do with of interest than defending the rights of the farmers. that is a good journalist like my be along on he say the situation in flames. already long running tensions between the government and the agricultural sector. gamble video even though it's taylor as the farming citizen, a strange situation. because like most countries in the world where they produce more food than they consume, what is a chance to make profit? argentina has a super awesome food and it could export more grain, milk,
1:42 pm
and meat pots and argentina's case. the bitter prices don't always benefit the farmers was this was the constant trouble between producers and the government. and that's why farmers vowed to continue with their demands. lease a government assistance would help them to produce more, something they say would benefit argentina's economy. and the whole world is i will as a cedar when a site is a both international monetary fund and the well bankcorp have met for the past week to consider the global consequences of the war in ukraine. they've also been discussing what's called the debt distress of many low income countries. they're also grappling with rising prices and increasing shortage is caused by the pandemic . en now the war in ukraine, or joining us to discuss this is vickie price was in london. she is the chief economic advisor at the center for a car, economic send, business research, and a former british government economic advisor. thank you very much, miss price for being with us. on al jazeera, i the i m f,
1:43 pm
meeting not business as usual, of course, or this year the i mess downward revision of world g d p was to be expected, wasn't it? absolutely. and they were looking at that in any case, because inflation had been rising even before the war in ukraine. we had seen food prices and prices and freight charges for transporting anything from anywhere around the world going up very significantly. and that had been leading low to people to downgrade their forecast anyway, say was expected, it would happen. but the interesting thing is it happens with a vengeance if you like, in the sense that they had to add to the impact of the warranty ukraine. and additionally, of course, they, there's this huge uncertainty as to how long the warranty claim will last and what will happen after their concerns. they have to do really with inflation, put prices, energy prices, and those areas which they cannot predict. so what efforts are needed now in the short term and median term to deal with these multiple shots the war in ukraine? of course, the high inflation food in energy security,
1:44 pm
high levels of debt and climate change. also indeed there's quite a lot to do with it. of course, why the world bank has already announced this $170000000000.00 support fund. that is a crisis fund, which they had something quite similar doing the coven crisis. but they've got this one now which is going to be so slowly building up over the next year or so for the poor countries, which are indeed going to fall into serious debt pressures. because of course they do, they have to pay except for those who produce doesn't want to just and, and have a surplus like we've just been hearing about as in tina. interestingly enough. but those countries that do not have those sort of luxury of being major a food producers or food export, just they are the ones that are suffering quite significantly. so the world bank is worried that something like 60 percent of the countries are looking at are going to be falling into serious debt issues and they going to have to step in and hence the fund that is that your system for the time being how long this will last is the
1:45 pm
real question, because on the food side, you want to see what is happening with 30 lies the cost going up significantly because the ukraine and russia together especially important exports affect noises . then farmers are not going to use, specializes as much as they would have done, otherwise they're not going to put down, you know, the crop so they would have done otherwise. so the problems with food security may last a lot longer than those for energy security where denise their alternatives and you can go to it, particularly gas from russia or from russia is limited in the future. looking at ukraine, specifically, what sort of help and support can you expect once it emerges from the war that we don't know what state is going to merge in. but they have already asked for 50000000000 support fund which is being considered right now. that would probably want to get a lot more from the you and as we know, the ready put
1:46 pm
a request in to have a you membership. so you can imagine that there be some extra help given to them that way. but it is going to be a major reconstruction effort if we're really looking at what they would do this year and, and what that help that we need to store the country to some sort of health. again, though, the both international interest on the european bank reconstruction, development and others have downgrade to the focus of the ukraine from a gross one that originally expected to anywhere between 35 percent and 45 percent dropping g d p in just one year. and that was requires huge amount of reconstruction. we've been hearing, of course, not just that civilian buildings have been attacked, but then the whole infrastructure are this ray infrastructure, production infrastructure and energy infrastructure. thank you so much for talking to us about this vicky price live there in london. the largest army group in southeast asia is for the 1st time backing
