a president vladimir putin has signed a new naval strategy which designates us and it nato military infrastructure moving towards russia's border as its main challenges. hootin made the announcements during russia's naval day sermon in saint petersburg. he said russia would protect its maritime borders by all means necessary, including an arctic and black seas. he also said that the delivery of new hypersonic, cruise missiles, will happen with in months. please your worries easy. it was moore's missed you. i key thing here is the capability of the naval forces. our navy can respond with lightening speed to all of those who infringe on our sovereignty and freedom, yet honorably fulfilled strategic tasks on the border of the country. and in any part of the ocean in the world, it has high readiness for active operations of its coastal surface air and submarine forces. and it is constantly improving. like with the latest zircon hypersonic missile systems, which have no counter types in the world. yes. and no barriers, dear comrades,
8:06 pm
their delivery to the russian armed forces will begin in the coming months. he feels. let's take a closer look. now at that statement that identifies usaa, nato is russia's 2 biggest threats. the $55.00 page document says, washington is trying to dominate the wells oceans and that nato is moving towards russian borders. it outlines moscow's plans to broaden this exploration of the arctic of boosting. it's an ordinance pacific naval fleet, and it announces a comprehensive strengthening of russia's geopolitical position in the black and as of seas. tolliver now is a senior research fellow at the quincy institute, all that responsible state croft. he says the russian navy will face challenge is competing with the us and nato fleets, the russian navy, the surface navy, at least, is out numbered for to one by europe's nate. nature's european members alone. and of course, by far more than that by the american navy. so in terms of numbers, there is really no contact where, of course, russia is,
8:07 pm
the quality united states is in nuclear weapons, which is why president putin, you know, repeatedly emphasizes rushes missile technology. because this is the one area in which russia is still a super unlike the army, the navy has not for an equal, but we do know that he suffered heavy losses in the black sea in the ukraine war. that may well simply illustrate the power of american weaponry which has been supplied to the ukrainian or russian navy has always been considered to have had comparatively high morale and good commanders. but it cannot realistically fight nature. the only area where the navy is actually in
8:08 pm
action is in the black sea. and russia cannot reinforce the navy in the black sea. so it's not really clear what the rest of the surface navy is. therefore, of course, the submarine navy is there to threaten american the west with nuclear weapons. a while grain ships, new cranes, black see ports wait for the all clear to sail. there's been a blow to the farming industry growing at next season's crop. the owner of one of the largest agriculture companies in cuba has been killed along with his wife in our russian strike mc alive. lexi on tusky was one of ukraine's richest, isn't people, is that nibble on that firm specializes in the production export of wheat, barley, and corn. russian ukraine of both agreed the grange ships. it will be free to depart from 3 ports on the black sea, including odessa vessels will be monitored to make sure they don't transport weapons. the black sea coast is still mind, so commercial boats will be guided out of the area by ukrainian naval ships. in
8:09 pm
istanbul, personnel from turkey, ukraine, russia, and the un will operate a joint coordination sent to where ships will be tracked and inspected as they enter the boss. for a straight was on, hendern has more not from odessa. those ships carrying ukrainian grain might leave as soon as monday, turkish presidential spokesman says, if all is well, if there are no logistical problems and if there are no security issues, those ships are expected to sail to morrow. he says there's a high likelihood that that will happen. we'd al jazeera talk to one of the captains of a boat at church mores loaded with grain. he said he was told to get ready to leave on monday to follow a pilot ship to assemble and then to places unknown. he said he has not been told that grain ultimately will go. but there could be security problems. and one reason for that is there was a loud boom audible from near the port in odessa,
8:10 pm
where we're standing right now. and that could signify a russian strike. if that is the case, it's possible that those shipments could again be postponed in just to give you an idea of how dangerous the situation is. right now. in michel, i have a town that the russians have struck multiple times. the head of a major grain concern called alexi about a tour sky of a company called nebulas was killed along with his wife in one of this strikes there. in another instance of farmer in eastern ukraine drove a combine over an explosive and was injured. so from the harvesting to the port, it's a dangerous mission and then going through those newly safe channels that were brokered in an agreement with the united nations and turkey is also perilous because the waters in the black sea have been mine. so the effort here is to try to get those ships to their destination and to make sure that their grain can get out to the world at a time when there's a threatened global food shortage. meanwhile,
8:11 pm
the red cross says it still waiting for russia to granted access to a prison in eastern ukraine, which came under a russian that missile attack on friday. rushes at defense ministry says it has invited the international committee of the red cross to investigate the facility in dumbass. at least 50 prisons of war were killed on thursday when the when and if cut detention count was bombed. now the 70 were wounded. russia and ukraine are accusing each other of attacking the facility. unofficial numbers in center goals parliamentary elections suggest that few people made their way to the ballot box. local media indicating the voter turnout was just 8 percent. or post polling stations i should say, are still open. opposition parties are angry, as some of their most popular candidates were disqualified from running and worried that if a present mackie souls party wins a majority, he may try to change the constitution and run for a 3rd term. at

8:16 pm

8:18 pm
o one china policy. in other words, there are no diplomatic relations between the united states and ty, wine, in terms of the, the 2 governments in there sort of ability to communicate diplomatically that is something that is still down between washington and beijing. however, what we do know is that there is under us law an obligation of the united states to help defend taiwan. and that's where things get complicated if and we know that right now circling the island to r u. s. ships, there are chinese ships and there also is the tie one's own military. and so if there is any sort of potential misunderstanding when the speaker potentially goes to visit the island, that's what there is concern about is that there could be some sort of a clash that is unintended. and this could lead to some sort of confrontation
8:19 pm
militarily that nobody was. and so that's the concern here. in fact, there has even been a discouragement of this visit by the u. s. military. but given the fact that the members of congress are co equal branch of government, in other words, the white house and congress have the same amount of power at the white house can suggest what nancy pelosi does. but ultimately the decision is her own. south africa's presence room on a poser has promised to focus on helping the poor and his party's policy conference . the african national congress has been losing photo support or facing criticism for corruption and failing to address in quality. these is the 3 day conference have discussed ways of ending poverty, inequality and violence against women. angelo fake, who spoke to al jazeera correspondence from the miller earlier today, he says the n c must make a huge effort to alleviate the challenges. many south africans are facing. so this
8:20 pm

8:21 pm
a huge part of the responsibility. so yes, there are massive global forces that have to be taken into account. but maladministration, poor management. the economy, particularly in the state, turned into prices are not doing what was actually indicated by in c governments in the late 90 ninety's, around securing the energy sector, having a better education system at both basic and tertiary level to ensure that people are employable and to transform social space as well as the economy, so that more people find ownership in it to broaden the taxpayers. none of these things have been done. and the a and c in power since 1994 at one point with a 2 thirds majority able to really run its policies through parliament without opposition of any significant kind. none of that has happened. and so this is a party that must take some responsibility for the lay of the land in the country at the moment. protest her as in sedans, capitol cartoon have returned to the streets, commanding that the countries army handover pow to a sicilian government. the military took power late last year. de rolling
