5:02 pm
rack or breaking day when it comes to the price of gas in europe. that has topped $2000.00 per 1000 cubic meters of gas for the 1st time ever. it's come about after gas braun, the russian energy giant didn't book any gas transit through poland on the human europe pipeline in its most very basic sense. that meant no extra gas would be arriving in germany. now, gas prong continues to live up to the contracts. it has with european nations like germany and others, but what it's not doing is sending any extra on to the market. what that means is there's an increased demand and well, not the supply as i said. so that means that prices have gone right open. fact, they've gone through the roof this month alone. prices have risen by 40 percent since the summer they've gone up 300 percent. and that is start to take a toll on energy companies and number of them deciding that this is just too rich
5:03 pm
for their blood. and they've had served while they fold it. they've had to file for bankruptcy. the latest to do that is neck and, and strong. here in germany they supplied power to some, 13000 homes across the country. they'll not be doing that anymore as they decided they just can't be part of this with the energy price. so high. now i said that gas brown continues to live up to the contracts which it signed. however, that hasn't stopped european leaders from suggesting that russia is using energy is using gas supply in an attempt to try and exert political influence over some countries in europe. rogers used energy as a tool for political influence, the for instance, in moldova. and while it is strictly speaking, fulfilling its commitments on gas supplies, many seats, current refusal to increase export volumes to europe, or to refill gas from own storage facilities as a means to exert pressure on the ear. and specifically to secure the regulatory
5:04 pm
licensing of no string to the kremlin spokesman the method of best golf. as said, this isn't an issue for the russian government that this is an issue between europe and gas problem. and the questions on this whole subject well shouldn't be directed towards the kremlin, they need to go to gas pro h q to respect to sales. what is the reason for the decrease in gas delivery? 5, the mile pipeline with gas now going in the reverse direction. is that link between the suspension of supplies, the germany, and the north stream to pipeline? so no, there is no link. it's a purely commercial issue, and it's up to gas prompt to explain the reasons. well, when you look at the prices, it's clay to see why this is such a big issue at $4.00 to $4.00 and a half times increases across europe when it comes to gas prices. as i said, huge demand for russian gas in europe at the moment. it had been hoped that the, the nord stream to gas pipeline would be able to, to slake some of that 1st,
5:05 pm
the gas, the plan was that that would be able to provide as much as 55000000000 cubic meters of gas every single year, directly into germany and then on towards the rest of europe. however, it's found itself snarled up in a bureaucratic process when it comes to certification. here in germany right now, we're hearing it may well not be approved until the 2nd half of 2022. this is after we had thought it would be up and running by well, now that was after the united states lifted sanctions against the north stream to company earlier in 2021 that had previously called the lit cause delays on that project. now the news tonight, private u. s. military contractors may be preparing a provocation involving chemical components in east and ukraine. is the warning from russia defense chief that is ministries annual meeting president posts, and also spoke to outlining worries about nato's east and expansion. and saying the blog will be responsible for any escalation,
5:06 pm
justice just preschool. the contention in europe is the united states, fulton, russia, had to respond that every step at every step, the situation was getting worse and worse. and today we're in a situation where we have to make decisions above vladimir putin and defense minister showing go outlined the security and defense situation and russia where things stand the piece of modernization. they also mentioned that the degree of modernization, as in russia's military, is one of the highest in the world. but they also spoke about the challenges facing russia. missed the show. go, for example, mentioning that more than a 100 american private military contractors who are currently on the front lines in the civil war in ukraine, which is very close to russia's borders, how they're instructing ukrainian military personnel there. and also miss the show . you mention that they have information that perhaps are american private military
5:07 pm
contractors are preparing a chemical provocation for those as the way the nato continues its military assimilation of ukraine's territory. that it's been established that there are currently more than a $120.00 employees of us private military companies present in that than ask region. they are equipping firing positions and the residential buildings and, and public facilities assisting ukrainian special forces and radical on groups to prepare for active hostilities. some canisters, with an identified chemical components, were delivered to carry out provocations in the region as your with regards to international themes, vladimir putin himself spoke about the continuing encroachment of american un. nato forces towards russian borders. he reminisces about the past, for example, spoke about how close her relations were between rush and the united states. a scott decades ago when cia offices, we're opening advising the russian government, telling them of what steps to take, what policies to pursue,
5:08 pm
where now emerge military personnel was stationed in russian nuclear silo, overseeing things there, how cosy relations between the united states and russia were at the time but then things began to collapse. bit by bit the united states, he said, perhaps high on victory, a presumed victory in the cold war. we began funding, separatist and terrorist movements and organizations in chechnya, for example, which led to misery and countless debts. she said new things since then had grown worse and worse we have, she continued the waves of expansion, nato expansion towards russia. despite the fact that nato promised russia, but that wouldn't happen after the collapse of the soviet union. the situation since then vladimir putin says, has continued to work with nato, a considering ukraine's application to join, which potentially means american missiles stationed in ukraine. the flight of those
5:09 pm
missiles would be at 10 minutes. flight time to moscow. they were hypersonic missiles, 5 minutes launch from ukraine to reach moscow, which for russia is entirely unacceptable. it leaves no time to react, which is why russia, as low as drawn its red line, which is why russia now demands security guarantees that noted native won't expand that infrastructure into ukraine. this is a matter in which russia is prepared to take the most the severe measures that may put in also said that even if security guarantees are given, that they can't be trusted. because the united states has a habit of manipulating or, or using international law to, to suit its purposes when it needs the un, it uses the un, it mentioned that it or it remembers it when it doesn't need the u. s. and forgets it exists. and similarly,
5:10 pm
the united states pulls out of internet slobs to total other cheeses at will from the intermediate nuclear forces street, here from the open skies treaty with or without explanation. and vladimir putin says russia stands ready to guarantee its own security gucci. but those union u k. so western collies continued to push the clearly aggressive line. we will respond with the appropriate military and technical measures will provide a tough response to any unfriendly moves. and i want to stress, we have the full right to do this. let me appleton also said that the russia doesn't want any bloodshed at once. stability at once peace and co operation, but that it will take steps to ensure its own security, as he said, is it? it is russia's right as it is the right of. i have every state you will to a made sure to mentor the brush doesn't want exceptional special conditions for itself all at once. ease for it,
5:11 pm
security to be guaranteed ahead of the talks, the defense ministry put a brand new submarine from the pacific fleet through its paces, launching an underwater caliber cruise. miss saw the weapon currently successfully struck its practice target on mainland russia. after traveling more than a 1000 kilometers from the sea of japan, the beleaguered british prime minister's approval rating, his nose dive to record low bars. johnson currently has just half the support he had at the start of the pan demik. most people pulled now believe he won't be leading the government to me is time. the main reason seems to be the almost daily damning revelations and photos suggesting that dining street stuff, conservative party workers, and even the pay him self violated cobit restrictions. last year. the latest picture published by the guardian newspaper shows borrowers, johnson with his family and stuff sharing wine and cheese in the dining st garden when the rest of the country was under strict laws against social mixing during the
5:12 pm
1st looked. but despite the photo evidence, johnson reject, there was any wrong doing. do you normally have wine and cheese? where were people at work? there's a meetings with people at work, talk about this is where i live and where i work. there is a meetings of people at what talking about what adding to the prime minister's was his nope and letter, but national health service stuff accusing his government of exploiting them. it's after us medics to help deliver the fastest and biggest vaccination drive to try to stave off the surgeon on macro and cobit varied the health workers. those say they're being asked for more and more on the getting nothing in return. we would like to ask each and every one of you why, despite our incredible efforts, you continue to exploit us on behalf of the whole n h s workforce. we want you to acknowledge the damage. you have cost apologize and let someone else fix your mess. the n a chest needs to be removed from the political playground people's lives aren't again,
5:13 pm
was photo then i chest nurse who scale by her work because of immense pressure. she told us she says, no effort by the government to tackle issues facing stuff where we're already seeing like widespread shortages that all having a massive impact on patient care. and not only that, i think working under those conditions where you are short staffed, then impacts the workers as well and, and it's kind of like a cycle, it becomes unbearable. and so that i think is a massive reason why i just stay and people walk away and drive. i myself have left the well, i was in a contracted role. i've left that now and i just do agency type, nice thing the page. you know, they've done nothing to address the pay on the 3 percent that they have given, you know, inflation. michelle is 4 percent, so it's not felt by, by the stuff you know, why would they stay? and that is pressure doing miss thought,
5:14 pm
what if they're not being paid badly and they don't feel valued? there's been no, no s that i think from the government to, to tackle retention within the work. i way i know so many colleagues of why the facts that we haven't had to pay addressed. the fact that we've with now asked to increase the amount of, you know, boost jobs that we're getting. and that is going to have an effect then on the services that we can offer. it's a lot, a lot of pressure at the moment and people are tired, they all devalued that demoralized and i can't see anything that this government is doing at the moment to address that. a former employee of the case liberal democrats says last weeks to feed for the conservative party local elections was another blow to boris johnson's leadership. amid those plummeting poll ratings, no one really believes that the garden party was in fact a work meeting. the deputy prime minister made it worse by claiming we knew it was
5:15 pm
a work meeting because everyone was wearing suits. it caused me to kill and both kind of avoid all of this by simply saying, we're not going to legislate for a long time. we just ask people to co operate in a locked and because no one's perfect and it stopped double standard, which has caused a lot of grieving people who couldn't even go to their parents or friends, funerals, to feel that they have been treated like fools by the prime minister, and that's not a sustainable position. first, johnson has been the most successful party leader for the conservatives since margaret thatcher. and he has definitely been regarded as an electoral asset to a desirable leader when it comes to adding votes. the bi election, which the conceptions last to liberal democrats after 200 years of holding a seat, begins to call into question the one thing you could always depend on boris johnson
5:16 pm
to deliver, which was victory without slat track record a victory. and with a continuing ongoing problems and accusations of hypocrisy for assumptions and trouble, right? you watching out into national, coming up this morning for moscow. death from above. and the next generation of warfare is russia's 1st new military drug displays. it's prowess waiting targets both in the sky and on the ground. get especially in that thing. after the break. ah, too late. you cannot do anything about it. it's now a cell phone, killing extinction event for the u. s. economy, sorry, america, but it's over because the ability to do what paul walker did raise rates is no
5:17 pm
longer on the table because the duration rest, the fundamental underpinning of the u. s. kind of the by market is so far out of the altar that any little bit move up. we'll crash it anyway. so it's either crash or one way or crash in another way, but you're not going to avoid the crash a lot. so seemed wrong when i just don't whole. i mean you will. yes, to see out the same becomes the african and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves will to part. we choose to look so common ground. oh,
5:18 pm
i good morning for moscow. so as covered, so micron very and spreads rapidly across the united states. the white house predicted joe, but with this she was start pulling but what the president ended up saying didn't quite come off as expected. caleb open reports while jen, saki promised that a stark warning would come from joe biden, regarding those who are unvaccinated. however, the millions of americans who tuned in didn't exactly hear that. now it's worth noting that joe biden did defend his unpopular mandates that he says are for the good of the people. i don't vaccination requirements, popular or maybe not even proper for those who are anxious to get to my ministration has put them in place not to control your life, but to save your life. now those mandate have been quite unpopular. there have been big demonstrations and outpourings of discontent and response, and there's been a number of shortages among jobs such as firefighters, police officers,
5:19 pm
airline pilots, and others. during his speech, he did brag about the new vaccination centers that have opened and the new wide spread ability availability of coven tests. now, one interesting thing to note about joe biden's remarks is he did actually make a point of acknowledging and thanking the previous administration for quote, making sure america was 1st to get the vaccine quote 1st to get the vaccine as the words he used. it's interesting because generally the problems of cobit in the united states are blamed on the previous administration. in this instance, he is actually acknowledging some achievement on the part of donald trump. his predecessor, jo biden's tone, got a little more harsh when talking about disinformation and the need for accurate information about the vaccines to be disseminated throughout the united states, dangerous misinformation on cable tv and social media. you know, these companies and personalities are making money. it's wrong, it's a moral,
5:20 pm
i call the purveyors these lies misinformation to stop it. stop it. now. obviously, all this information should be opposed as a threat to public health. but how much help is this coming from joe biden, whose disapproval rating is now at 55 percent? well, over half of americans disapprove of his job as president. i. it's important to know that even independent voters in united states who don't consider themselves to be democrats or republicans are moving away from joe biden. 66 percent of them disapprove of his leadership. there was a pole taken in december that showed that 67 percent of americans don't want joe biden to be on the ballot in 2024. well, 59 percent. say they don't want donald trump to be on the ballot. so i guess the president of the states did his best. he gave a speech updating the public and calling for people to get vaccinated and take measures to protect public health. but that doesn't change the fact that the,
5:21 pm
the background is the sinking approval ratings of the biden administration, and quite a bit of disappointment among the american people. finally, fanatics, i tell me, cause for taking stalk unplugging ahead and for the russian defense ministry. that means staying ahead of the technology game. i'm going to leave you for this news edition with a special from ortiz unit shop of oliver was looking at the military's latest drone system. ah. with showing this but for the 1st time or see film, the moment a guided missile launched by rushes around unmanned aerial vehicle and moving at target.
5:22 pm
ryan is the rushing on his fast multifunctional recognizance and strike the it's pass a number of stringent tests has now been ordered by the defense minister of russia and is in mass production. ah, ryan also performed successfully in ministry operations and syria. iran is the production name, but in the russian on it's in hold it which translates as pacing horse or ryan or in hot it's true, has a maximum take off weight of more than a ton carries a payload of 250 kilos. it's 8 meters long and has a wingspan of 16. me says it's flying. duration is more than 24 hours. it's ottomans can be placed on 3 attachment points. it kind of use corrected and then guided bombs and guided missiles in terms of it finds and capabilities a ryan can be compared with the american and key one c great eagle. these really ham is 900 and the chinese wing,
5:23 pm
but the tank is joined by rock town in russia for its participation in the now gordon, a car back and see we're in conflict as well. it's for, it's used by neighboring ukraine in the dom, boss is homicide pathways, caring capacity is also half as much welcome to drone began in 2011 to come for the 1st time in 2016. and in april 20 to 20. it ended service with the russian army stay in a hotel turn has in a real combat, and syria is in service with the russian army while it's younger, yet larger brother, ellen with other trains are being developed by the concept company here in moscow. i really need that 1st domestic unmanned aerial vehicle belonging to the international nail clause, which stands for medium altitude, long endurance, u, a v. as mentioned earlier, it can stay aboard for more than 24 hours. initially its mission was to conduct aero recognizance then night. in a wide variety of climates including in the arctic and, and the desert. today,
5:24 pm
a ryan is not totally for reconnaissance, but also for strike purposes. one ground control center. they can handle several aircraft at once. the complex comprises of several air crow 6 there are up to 6 large drones in one complex. at the same time, the complex allows you to maintain your fleet controls and ensure the use of all drones in the air. with the now we're working on a new modification, it will allow one control point of this. a provide a simile, tenuous, control plan coordination of up to 20 aircraft. what are you? in fact, this is already small technology also into the complex includes a ground take off and landing point b, a ground control station and ground support facilities. this machine can lift to 150 kilos. these are optical electronic systems, video cameras and radars for strike purposes it, he's as both standard small caliber albums and weapons designed specifically for
5:25 pm
drain fiber standing near by the chat with it. engines are, you will hardly be able to hear it around a different. it distinctive feature is de la cruz signature, which makes the device almost silent. someone applies 1000 meters above the as the enemy can be taken by surprise. in order to ensure it can fly for such a long time, the device must have a patrick's ira. dynamic platform, in particular, wing of high aspect ratio is designed on that plan for engine has low fuel consumption. iran is powered by a pitney engine, which is also assembled internally by the manufacturer. that our complex has an open architecture ethic, which allows integrating almost any payloads due to winning weapons in accordance with the customers requirements. because we produce post domestically or abroad and perform the most important thing in the u. a. v is software, both on board and external. 90 percent of it is produced in the constant group of
5:26 pm
companies, and this is the most vital and expensive work. this is a unified ground control. central intelligence is he's here and this is how the real, what happens a ryan is jury is coming, mission flying over the firing range billboard is controlling if remodeling. it is about to capture and find internet hong is did by the way they do by asha november 2021, the company rolled out a new automated workstation. if several such workstations are installed and a ground control center, it will be possible to control as many as 20 drones at once. and finally, another challenge for ryan's manufacturer is, is the very tight deadlines that the ministry of defense sets for the company. therefore, in order to increase the production volume of this and other larger size, drones, a new planned is being built and dibner near moscow,
5:27 pm
it's launch is scheduled for the end of this year. so it's obvious that business got off the ground and very soon flying robles will god and protect us u dash above oliver osi ah, ah. so driven by a dream shaped bank for some of those with theirs sinks,
5:28 pm
we dare to ask in a technology is a very big industry. and there's a lot of opportunities for hackers movie that is not here, but he didn't bring the law in the country. you're dealing with why rest in the major cybersecurity challenge is the sovereignty of laws that cyberspace has no borders. new sovereignty we ended up with, for example, the national health service in the u. k. the and a chest was completely wiped out for the ransomware attack. if you were coming into a clinic because you had a test or you had an operation, they can't find your records. they had to go back to pen and paper. oh
5:29 pm
