proposals from the west on resolving the ukraine conflict. surg, elaborate was speaking in moscow as part of an annual review of russia's foreign policy. the solution can yes, missouri, we heard the mantra in western capital that you can't talk about ukraine without ukraine. this is all nonsense. in fact, it is the west that decides for ukraine. they forbade zalinski to conclude an agreement with russia at the end of march last year. even though such an agreement was already in place, the west sides, and it decides for ukraine without it with which the hash was listening in sir gala robs. but us conference today was an attempt to put the whole war and the whole war into the context of the russian west and confrontation as he described it. he even used that term. the final solution when he was describing the us led coalition as he described,
2:09 am
that's trying to find the solution for the russian question. he also compared the u. s. and weston attack on under and russia. he said to napoleon and hitler. so it was like more into a historical context then he went into some detail with respect to negotiations with ukraine, saying that russia is open to the ations. however, it needs some solid points to stand on. also, he mentioned the meeting between the head self intelligence in russia and the u. s . and said that this happened when the president biden's request also went to address the issue of the sanctions. and russia said that his country is working on creating and enhancing some new supply chains. in order to avoid the western interruptions of canada sounds, government says freezing temperatures of killed at least 70 people,
2:10 am

2:12 am
let me conference that as you know, issue the statement. that is very important because it clearly says that what is happening, afghanistan is against the holy koran. and she visited before going to afghanistan, a number of his le couches with the objective to mobilize support in these let me quote, to make clear for the taliban that they need to reverse the present trends. and i think that these was an important initiatives. i hope that this initiative will produce positive results. in any case, we will be ready to adopt the measures that are, will be considered necessary. if for the initiative does not produce the results we are expected cause you except that there is not that much leverage that the international community have. the taliban don't seem to care much about international recognition. at this stage you say their turn to come to the taliban with the i would say a western perspective would be totally useless at the present moment. and that's
2:13 am
the reason why. and i mean, our met is a muslim woman and the recognised muslim wallace and to be able to mobilize the is let me quotes to tell clearly of taliban that what they are doing as nothing to the with islam as nothing to do with the hollywood on it has probably to though it some traditional values the, the afghan society, but that there are all reasons are in the, to the benefits of the forgotten people. to make sure that her women can work, that girls can go to school bus at secondary level at the university level, and that they can be active agents for the development of the country. recently the taliban band or female aid workers from international agencies from operating inside afghanistan. for now female you and workers can continue to operate. but the 2nd general wouldn't be drawn on what would happen if they to a band soon anti government protesters from across peru are converging on the
2:14 am
capital for 2 days of mass demonstrations. looking here at live pictures of protestors who are arriving in lima, making their way into the capital from all over the country president dina, they want president dina bell to watch it to resign and her predecessor pedro castillo to be released from jail. more than 40 people have died in the unrest that began after he was out in december resident boulevard, a set to meet with a representative of the you and human rights office, which is called for an investigation into the deaths of protesters. arianna sanchez is live for us in lima. marianna protesters are arriving in lima from across the country. what's happening were you are and what are you hearing from the protesters there? that's right mohammed, we've been seeing a groups of different people with some of them. some of them with their costume, some of them with the flags of a representing the income civilization. many of them coming from the south of the
2:15 am
country more than anywhere else in the country, from cool stuff, from who know from my uncle to on, on the white les, where most of the deadly protest took place in the last few weeks. now these people have been marching around the streets of the capital. they have been here in this plaza. it's not heavily guarded, but there are some police are deployed here in the center of the capital. there's a lot of nervousness about what may happen in the next $36.00 or 48 hours. we've seen deadly protests in the south. and so there's been some local mayor saying that they want more security. there's also been a. a statement by the former, a president of congress seen are called, what do these people want in lima, a total disregard of the people's right to protest of the people's rights to move around the country, the equal rights of peruvians. i mean, it shows
2:16 am
a divide between lima, the capital, and the provinces. this is exactly why people feel disenfranchised. they feel abandoned, they feel bullied, and many people are also very angry about the deaths that have happened in the past few weeks. now. the foreign minister of peru, maria, and that's a cd ahead of us. he isn't davos. and she has said that the rule will remain inside the committed to the international human rights system. well, that's what people really want. and people want justice for those who have been killed in the protests in the past few weeks. mohammed and marianna, as you mentioned, there's a lot of concern about what might happen in the next 36 to 48 hours. but there's also of still a lot of anger among the protestors and they are so calling on president below, aren't they to resign? how likely is it that she might stepped out?
2:17 am
well mohammed, i think that the demands have been narrowing down. first. it was 3 president cathy from jail, then it was let's have a constitutional reforms. that's how the congress shut down. all of these things that are continuing among the amounts, but the main voice now among protesters is the resignation of precedent. but who are they? she has said she will not resign. the prime minister has said that she will not resign, but 71 percent of peruvians, according to the latest opinion polls disapprove of her government. so that's why many critics, observers, historians, analysts are saying that because of the legitimacy is that is being questioned off her government. she should start considering to say, stepping down mohammed. all right, that's how this year is marianna sanchez live for us from lima. thanks so much.
