with the protesters, ransacked banks and shops. now everything is broken, the money was taken, the window smashed, military helmets are lying on the grout. there's lots of rubbish. ah cassock stan will complete it. anti terrorist operation will destroy those who do not surrender. i have given the order to open fire and kill terrorists without warning. a sweeping anti terrorism operation is still underway in the commercial capital and the largest city of conflicts done on the t. it has been the hardest hidden recent days, with riders looting stores and setting fire to government buildings. many of them carrying firearms. yes. made it,
which is more than $200000000.00. dozens of people including 3 children and at least 16 people, police officers have been killed. it is claimed, some of the police were even beheaded with authority. stressing groups of writers were highly organized and even used. 2 way radios. presidente kaya responded with an order to shoot suspected terrorists on site. no video has been circulating online of a man from kit, a guest on who claims he was paid to come to cause extent to join the riots. security forces, believe he's a terrorist, here is the footage. it'll swim no soon. this on january 1st, some strangers called me and offered to participate in the rallied over $200.00 since i'm unemployed. in kurdistan. they bought me plaintext on january 2nd. i flew to my seat and i was brought to an apartment where there were also citizens of tickets and his biggest then there were about 10 people. i didn't understand what
they were talking about. when they really began, i got scared, returned to my apartment, spend the night, and the next day i decided to go home and i was detained by the military. also, in the meanwhile relatives and friends and colleagues have identified the man in the video as the problem was a kid, he's jazz musician, they claim that he is being tortured and they don't know his whereabouts. authority in his home country have said, he's not a terrorist. and have since he protest note, because like embassy, he was reportedly invited to give a concert in almighty. before the protests broke out, the crowd gathered at the cause like embassy and the caregiver. capital was kept demanding his release. public started central ages, biggest republican and shares long borders with russia and china. the protests have been driven by long simmering resentment over disparities and wealth with the most violent clashes erupting in almighty in the south. east of the country. reporting from there is our correspondent, what guns do you have with the details of the destruction that has been unleashed?
it had been said to say that the peaceful protests and kazakhstan caused all that much economic damage. it, it was of the peaceful protests. it was the riots the mayhem and the looting afterwards. that of a scant days has caused more than $200000000.00 in damage to the country. mostly here in the city of amity and those are preliminary estimates. the real damage is expected to be much, much more kazakhstan has said repeatedly that it believes this wasn't spontaneous. it was organized, looting with more systematically hitting shopping centers and businesses at the shopping center. cctv cameras caught the mayhem in this shopping center and elsewhere. looters, of course, went for easiest pickings 1st that his electronic shops, jewelry stores, as well as h e. m. 's. this, for example, was a food shop, not
a lot left aside from a few broken gadgets. shelves were cleared in minutes, security could do nothing but watch and police were engaged in fatal fire fights with armed gangs elsewhere. and the looters went to town. there's very little doubt that this was planned because the people that came here and did this brought the right equipment. it takes a lot to get into cash machines, but they manage to do. it's taking the cash cassette posters. typical bullshit. i don't want this to be happening. of course it was scary. we stayed home for almost these were not off people. we were all resting after the new year's celebrations. were some foreigners were doing all this is we were waking up or people just went out to the square to peacefully protest and then left. and then it all erupted vehicles over there. i heard some kind of running around voices, so i looked out available,
most likely. they knocked out the doors of some shops. there are many electronic stores on the street level and it and then they got into the car and left. there was no police, which was it is the level of level they destroyed everything. people were in danger of being killed. it was scary. it's good that we live far away. it didn't reach us . everything was awful. that there is no street lighting yet. and people are not turning on the lights in their homes. people are afraid. there were different people on the streets. at 1st the protests were peaceful, nights, fishing their sobers cuz it what can a pensioner say? i'm sitting at home. i'm afraid to go out. good. it's good that we have peacekeepers now. it was a terrifying time for civilians. many hid in their homes, turning off the lights to avoid attention as gangs lay waste to the city of alma t. there was nothing they could do. no, when they could call for help. until the peacekeepers came. ah
ah ah ah ah, ah ah, at the now secure airports of almighty evacuations are underway. russians and other nationals, it being evacuated abroad, charter flights and military cargo planes. they went through can only be described as an ordeal. rational book, and yet it was scary. of course. yes, there was no informational communications. russia helped me a lot of it. i'll get back to paris that i have to explain that how bad the situation here is. they don't report it on the news. so france is not organizing anything yet. i do not think, as they say in france, that it is bad that the russians have arrived. this is assistance to the country,
the situation, and the citizens of russia. yes, more than that now it's a more or less normal situation. thank god, we were waiting for these planes to evacuate us where stockton is with us. we're faced a crowd that was armed, believed in hotel next to the square. we saw however, she was burning flash grenades were frown, so it was very scary. it's scary because i was born here and it has seeing all the events that happened and that happening, but everything seems to be getting better when you're sick. i'm more of a hassle. socrates could have put down the rights on their own. but how long would that take? perhaps there would have been even more casualties. all in all about a 100 people are being evacuated on this one military flight. but altogether about a 1000 people have contacted the russian culture and asked to be evacuated out of our multi alone, just just one city and they will be evacuated over about 10 or so flood. but
authorities have told us that they expect more people to contact the counselors into request evacuation among them for a national. there's no more fighting in alma t, though occasional fire flights are still being reported outside. the city now begins a long process of healing for a population that truly believed nothing like which could happen to them ah, in what could be seen as a caustic opener ahead of the crucial talk this week, us secretary of state anthony blinking has claimed vladimir putin wants to restore the old soviet union, and russia has a gun to the head of ukraine. former defense secretary, leon panetta said a few years ago that what he believes drives potent is a desire to restore the old soviet union. do you agree?
i think that's right to make actual progress. it's very hard to see that happening when there's an ongoing escalation. when russia has a gun to the head of ukraine with a 100000 troops near its borders, the possibility of doubling that on very short orders. moscow and washington are currently embroiled in a diplomatic and political crisis. the u. s. accuses russia of a build up of troops at the border of ukraine. moscow in turn, has pledged to defend the dumbass region if there is a military escalation there. some are concern that the u. s. is trying to curb brushes legitimate activities. yes. to this is of course, a reflection of the general us strategy. they have their national interests in every country. russia can't have its national interest, but all the while the united states has its national interest all over the world. i have no doubt that the west, as in the case of but a roof will use the situation. first of all, in terms of propaganda and moscow,
ahead of wednesdays talks between russia and nato says it won't succumb to pressure from washington. this follows reports the by an administration is working on tough sanctions against russia. if it does invade ukraine, russia will not bow to you as pressure and will not accept any concessions. the unilateral approach proposed by the u. s. a. nato can't be used as the basis for discussing security guarantees. these high level talks to avoid further escalations over ukraine are set to take place between the united states and russia on monday. but before anyone has even sat down at the negotiating table, the u. s. is already threatening big economic sanctions. biden's administration says that russia is planning to invade ukraine, even though moscow has time and time again. it is said, it is not planning to do so. so it did sure seems interesting that the white house would say it's going into these negotiations without optimism. while it seems like it's ready to torpedo the negotiations before they even began. we are going into
these meetings with a sense of realism, not a sense of optimism. we are willing to see whether or not russia comes to these talks with a spirit of seriousness. willing to discuss these issues in a concrete results oriented way was by the will to the right and you will lead them cheer themselves up. somehow. if you will, these talks are set to be held on the backdrop of heightening tensions with ukraine . they are also set to take place alongside a proposed treaty by russia for security guarantees between itself and nato. moscow's proposal primarily seeks to stop the for the further eastward expansion of nato into the former soviet sphere. this is something that russia said it was guaranteed many years ago. back when the former soviet president mikhail gorbachev was in power. however, the us state department has called moscow's proposal. a list of non starters and nato officials have also echoed that sentiment saying they will not outright reject any countries that are looking to join the military alliance. so with nato
officials in washington, seemingly unwilling to consider russia's terms, it remains to be seen how effective these talks are going to be. former pentagon security analyst, michael maloof, says blinking statements pave the way for moscow to be vilified by the west. once again. well, i think he definitely lay the groundwork for a negative approach for many of his allegations of follows a particular narrative that they have to maintain to show that a russia remains the bad guy just just like they blame russia now for bringing in troops into cars. extend one is part of a, of a general military alliance that exists there. these guys just have this problem with russia, and they want to try and contain moscow from all, from all sides. russia has legitimate spheres of influence in that region. there's no question about it. they got russia, russian ethnic people living in those areas,
the same and dom, boston, ukraine. those 2 elements are not unrelated as far as i'm concerned because it's my belief that like we saw in ukraine in 2014, with the, with the a qu, from the west, instigated by the west. we're seeing the same thing in kazakhstan right now, in preparation for these talks. still becoming the program, anger rumbled on in europe this weekend over the new kobe to restrictions being rolled out across the continent. worth weekly coming up after short breakthroughs. ah, ah ah
ah, we'll come back to the weekly right here in our to international. now, in france, fierce protests ruptured in major cities across the country this weekend. many saw clashes with police over mandatory vaccine passports and other covered restrictions . thousands demonstrated nationwide with riot police, resorting in some cases to buttons and tear gas to try and restore order. ah ah. protestors took to the streets of songs on saturday in the cities of paris. nice and i've been on to protest against the covert pass the seems turned violent with police using tear gas and battens against many of the protesters. a similar
throwback to the scenes that we saw in late december. now this is despite the fact that on monday you had as many as 400000 people testing positive for covert in france. it comes as the french president emanuel macklin used vulgar language against people have chosen to be unvaccinated. his comments were to clyde across the french public and across the political spectrum. and he made them as the national assembly debated a law that would c, unvaccinated people being banned from much of public life. it is expected that that law will be introduced in the coming days. this comes as massive protests against covert continue across europe in vienna. there were fumes and a lot of noise as protest has demonstrated against the vaccination and against covered restrictions. here in germany, in the city of magda burg, thousands of people took to the streets. however,
ah, it seems to alignment with the police using tear gas and battens to try and disperse the crawl. there were scenes of protests in many other cities across the country, including the capital berlin. at the same time, the german hotel and restaurant association has issued a statement saying that these latest restrictions are a disaster for businesses and have a negative impact, particularly on restaurants, who rely heavily on watkins and they have urged the government to provide urgent assistance. the details are being guided by the latest message from the world health organization stating that although the latest variant only con is list severe than the previous variant of delta,
particularly amongst those people who have been vaccinated in no way. can it be classified as mild, just like previous variance? alma cronies hospitalized people and it is killing people. in fact, the soon army of cases is so huge and quick that it is overwhelming health systems around the world. it is expected that there will be more protests in the coming days, as governments across europe continue to tighten restrictions and introduce mandatory vaccines to try and stop the spread of covered while when you think of green energy, you may think of solar panels or wind turbines as one might expect, but amid a fuel crisis that you now wants to include natural gas and nuclear power. that plan however, has attracted plenty of criticism with germany, calling it green washing. and he showed pinsky asthma. the store a new year and a new spat is brewing between new members. bickering has a rapid with state,
split over how energy from nuclear and gas susan should be classed in the future. the you want to categorize investments in some of these projects as being green, but others argue this is essentially green washing. label nuclear energy as sustainable is wrong. this is a high risk technology. it is questionable whether this greenwashing will find acceptance on the financial market at all. that we think nuclear technology is dangerous. we still think the waste issue is unresolved. we expressly reject the assessment on nuclear power. under the commissions proposal investment, the new nuclear energy facilities should be classified as a group if they meet certain technical standards. now that lead to occupations that the commission is destroying the credibility of the european eco label for financial investments with germany leading the charge of nations against these
proposals, but could put it in direct collision. of course, with the blocks of the heavy weight. that is france, 70 percent of energy here is generated from nuclear power. so convinced the president michael and nuclear is a way forward, he financed a 1000000000 euro investment. expanding the industry will go home in order to guarantee france, his energy independence to ensure our country's electricity supply and to achieve our objectives. in particular carbon neutrality. in 2050, we will, for the 1st time in decades, will relaunch the construction of nuclear reactors in our country and continue to develop renewable energies on the house. the support from some eastern block nations was for a vacuum prime minister agreeing that climate neutrality just called be met without new, clear energy. australia is furious over the plan, saying it will take the commission to court if it moves ahead with them. will
examine the present draft carefully and have already commissioned a legal opinion on nuclear power in the taxonomy in this plans are implemented in this way. we will sue because atomic power is dangerous and not a solution in the fight against the climate crisis. meanwhile, germany is also coming under pressure over its anti nuclear stance from the czech republic. berlin has just all the clues of haul from germany's remaining nuclear power plants, as part of a plan to withdraw completely from the technology. not prague describes that as being a radical step. our government will have to work patiently and hard look for allies in europe and convince partners. finally, it also has to move forward with the construction of nuclear units and to encourage investment in other reasonable renewable sources. that is the way out of the energy crisis. the alternative is under development and poverty. and nobody wants that.
all of this comes as europe is in the midst of an energy crisis, with some experts suggesting that the crunch will last roy the way until 2023 move by germany and closing nuclear react is also could push up prices even further. prices in german neil was twice as high as the could be. there is an energy crisis that the prices of the rising. rising cost means that the industry need more energy and that heating your home becomes expensive. we need cheap, stable energy to politician the country a lot focused on the interest of jim and industry in german customers. but that's the hollow, ideological, gender, and a polar to logical agenda. the 1st thing they don't need get because they want to do everything with the nubile. it's
a kind of magic. they believe that they can do that again. as a 2nd, audiological agenda and a caller is that there are called core anti russian. one solution to that crisis could be the approval of the nord stream to pipeline that would supply gas directly from russia to germany. however, with tensions high between the e u in moscow, the green light for that project is far from certain, leaving the e u. scrambling to find the money to pay increasing energy bills, while members remain bitterly divided over the future of energy policy. challenge even sky r t. paris. all right, that does it for me. i will be back in about 31 minutes with another phone. fresh look at your weekly stay with our internet. ah.
bowl i will shoot seemed wrong when i just don't whole. i mean you will. yes, to shape out. disdain becomes the applicant. and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground july, an annual festival in st. petersburg dedicated to dust i ascii. ah, the great writer, thinker and psychologist, people often turn to his work to understand russia and russians, perhaps even themselves. think what they sing on, what do you see? what they think about the matter vehicle of quality? any that changing a rita transforming them as they read that to does the isc is unique ability to
