9:07 pm
data that comes out to actually tell us the level out with that. so not, but there has been a lot of galvanized me lot of you know what we think will involvement leading up to the elections and yet we hope to see that reflect somehow in the balance. okay. flourish. mohammed baris, on the way out, who are the main contingency buying to replace him? well, the 3 major contained and so we have 3 parties, 3 main parts is actually the 17 parties on the by laws. we have 3 main parts, is the apc, the ruling. apc which is bryson carries foxy on behalf of be well on. maxine oguio, we have pdp me the largest office shown poxy on the ceiling. attic walker, who was a former vice president and has run for office up to 5 times, but as lost those fright times. and we have a the, the 3rd mid candidates,

9:09 pm
dialogue and diplomacy, he out of me dialogue are different from the time developments in ukraine started. india has emphasized the dispute should be resolved through dialogue and diplomacy . your with on been italy about. india is ready to contribute in any piece processes, right? you raise rig was the galvan method, but we also reiterated our agreement. that reforms are essential in multilateral institutions. so that they better reflect global realities. so messed with armando, believe their renter motor well hoss punt is a professor of international relations in daily. earlier i asked him to explain the line that india's trading between its ties to the west and its military and oil dependence on russia. i think india's historically dependence on russia for defense is quite extraordinary. that because during the cold water,
9:10 pm
the west was not willing to supply india with critical defense technologies. and so india reliance and then soviet union increased. and as a result of which even today, india finds almost 55 percent of its defense supplies coming from russia. so with that kind of independence at the time that engage facility light border with china is a major predicament for indian policy makers. and therefore they are very reluctant to publicly condemned russia. but indian prime minister has last year publicly said to lady middleton and that, you know, this is not the time for war. and the statement has been reflected in various countries in various ways. and in some ways, india is trying to distance itself from the larger digression that russia has leaked on your brain. but it is a very, very difficult act to follow on oil and gas. it has been a different a relationship because energy dies have really bonded the last one year when india, indian political economy has demanded, given the discounts that russia has been offering to india. india found it very
9:11 pm
lucrative, and therefore india has gone ahead and bought some oil from russia, but it's largely the dependencies more related to defense. i want to speak to a bit more about china and india's reluctance to distance itself from russia. i'm just wondering if this could become a problem in the long run. if say a weekend, russia is driven closer towards china, which is of course, a big competitor to india. absolutely, i think this is one of the biggest challenges that many indian policymakers are very much aware of because a week and russia will be a satellite country to china and china, russia axis in recent years has become stronger in particular, the vistas isolated russia opposed to ukraine crisis, we have seen china and russia coming together substantively and that means for india which, which faces china as the most important to strategic challenge going forward. and
9:12 pm
this relationship becomes a very, very difficult not not to track. and therefore, india is trying to maintain some channels of communication with russia. it is trying to keep those channels open because it would not want russia and china to. busy less together, which becomes of a formidable, a challenge for india going forward, given the defends dependence on russia. and given the strategic challenge that india faces from china. and that was hush pan to professor of international relations in delhi. speaking to me a little bit earlier. let's get a round up now of some of the other stories making headlines today. protest is in berlin. have urged the german government to push the peace talks between russia and ukraine. the rally was organized by the controversial movement rebellion piece led by left wing politician of august and rights activists and the structure. they want germany to stop supplying weapons to you. credit and protest is in the philippines have been marking the anniversary of the 986 people power uprising that after
