9:05 pm
dealing with the protesters, ransacked banks and shops. now everything is broken, the money was taken the window smashed, military helmets are lying on the ground. there's lots of rubbish. 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 under way in the commercial capital and largest city and have it done multi. it has been the hardest hit in recent days with writers including stores and setting fire to government buildings,
9:06 pm
many of them carrying firearms. now the estimated damage is more than $200000000.00 . dozens of people including 3 children and at least 16 police officers have been killed. it is claimed, some of the police were even beheaded with authority. stressing groups of writers seemed highly organized and used 2 way radios, even president kind of responded with an order to shoot suspected terrorists on site. now the video has been circulating online of a man from kyrgyzstan who claimed he was paid to come to cause its time to join the right. security forces believe that he is a terrorist. here is the footage. it'll slow me no soon. this on january 1st, some strangers called me and offered to participate in the rally over $200.00. since i'm unemployed in curtis and they bought me plaintext on january 2nd, i flew to my feet and i was brought to an apartment where there were also citizens of tickets and was based on there were about 10 people. i didn't understand what
9:07 pm
they were talking about when the relative began. i got scared, returned to my apartment to spend the night. and the next day i decided to go home and i was detained by the military also. you know, meanwhile relatives, friends and colleagues have identified the men in the video as a result of a caregiver, jazz musician. they claim he is being tortured and they don't know his whereabout authorities on country have said that he is not a terrace and have sent a protest note to the contact embassy. he was reportedly invited to give a concert and almighty for the protest, broke out the crowd gathered at the contact embassy in the curious done capital. tax demanding is really complex. done is central is, is biggest republic 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 an almighty in the south. east of the country.
9:08 pm
reporting from there is our correspondent, but our guys you have with details of the destruction that has been unleashed. it had been said to say that the peaceful protests in kazakhstan caused all that much economic damage. it, it wasn't the peaceful protests. it was the riots the mayhem and the looting afterwards. that over 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 this shopping center, c, c, t, v cameras caught the mayhem in this shopping center and elsewhere. looters, of course, went for easiest pickings. first that his electronic shops,
9:09 pm
jewelry stores, as well as a t m. 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 plaid 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. push this to the local bullshit. i don't want this to be happening. of course it was scary. we stayed home . almost these were not all people. we were all resting after the new year celebrations. were some foreigners were doing all this is we were waking up. people just went out to the square to peacefully protest and then left and then it all erupt. it got there. i heard some kind of running around voices, so i looked out,
9:10 pm
most likely they knocked out the doors of some shops. there are many electronic stores on the street level, and then they got into the car and left. there was no police which was in the lobby, 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. this is there still worse cassette? what can a pensioner say? i'm sitting at home, i'm afraid to go out. it's good that we have peacekeepers now. it was a terrifying time for civilians. many hidden 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
9:11 pm
ah ah ah ah ah, ah, ah, at the now secure airport of al mathee evacuations are underway. russians and other nationals that being evacuated abroad charter flights and military cargo planes. what they went through can only be described as an ordeal for ash my book. and yet it was scary. of course, there was no informational communications. russia helped me a lot of it. i'll get back to paris. i have to explain that how bad the situation here is they don't report it on the new. so at france is not organizing anything
9:12 pm
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 of my now it's a more or less normal situation. thank god. we were waiting for these planes to evacuate us. where stockton is with face the crowd that was armed, lived in the hotel next to the square. we saw however, she was burning flash grenades were thrown. so it was very scary. almost like scary because i was born here and it hurts. seeing all the events that happened on the happenings, but everything seems to be getting better to them is mechanical, socrates could have put down the rights on their own. but how long would that take? perhaps they would have been even more casualties. all in all about a 100 people being evacuated on this one military flight, but altogether about a 1000 people have contacted the russian consulate and dos to be evacuated out of. i'll muddy alone, just just one city,
9:13 pm
and they will be evacuated over about 10 or so flood. but authorities have told us that they expect more people to contact the call to listen to request evacuation among them for a national. there's no more fighting in alma t, though occasional fly flights are still being reported outside. the city now begins a long process of healing for a population that truly believed. nothing like lease could happen to them. ah, in what could be seen as a caustic opener ahead of crucial talks this week, u. s. 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 putin is
9:14 pm
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 order. moscow and washington are currently embroiled in a diplomatic and political crisis. the u. s. accuses rush out of a build up of troops at the border of ukraine. moscow in turn, has pledged to defend the don bus region if there is a military escalation there. some are concerned that the u. s. is trying to curb rushes legitimate activities in the region. yes, this 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
9:15 pm
a ruth will use the situation. first of all, in terms of propaganda and moscow ahead of wednesday's talks between russia and nato says it wants to come to pressure from washington. it 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
9:16 pm
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. but you will see the site and you will lead them. she has themselves up somehow. you know, all these talks are set to be held on the backdrop of heightening tensions with ukraine. they're also set to take place alongside a propos 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
9:17 pm
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 blinkin statements paved the way for moscow to be vilified by the west once again. but i think he definitely lay the groundwork for a negative approach. it, many of his allegations that 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 cause it's down when it's part of a, of a general military alliance that exists there. these guys just have this problem with the 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
9:18 pm
no question about it. they got rush, 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 qu, from the west, instigated by the west. we're seeing the same thing in catholics down right now. in preparation for these talks, switching gears to france at now, fears protests erupted in major cities across the country. this weekend, many saw classes with police over mandatory vaccine passports into other coven restrictions. thousands demonstrated nationwide with riot police, resorting in some cases to baton and tear gas to try and restore order. ah
9:19 pm
ah. the protestors took to the streets of songs on saturday in the cities of paris nice and of in 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 throw back 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 micron 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 see unvaccinated people being banned from much of public life. it is expected that they can all will be introduced in the coming days. this comes as
9:20 pm
massive protests against covert continue across europe. in vienna, there were fumes and a lot of noise as protesters demonstrated against the vaccination and against covert restrictions. here in germany, in the city of magda burg, thousands of people took to the streets. i that seems to had lined 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,
9:21 pm
who rely heavily on wilkins. and they have urged the government to provide urgent assistance. the deed is being guided by the latest message from the world health organization stating that although the latest variant, omi called is less 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, omicron is 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 government across europe continue to tighten restrictions and introduce mandatory vaccines to try and stop the spread of covered. so when you think of green energy, you may think of solar panels or wind turbines, as you can expect. however, i made
9:22 pm
a fuel crisis that you now want to include natural gas and even nuclear power. plant, however, has attracted plenty of criticism with germany, calling it green washing parties. charlie davinsky has more on the story 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 sources 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 and nuclear energy as sustainable is wrong. this is a high risk technology. it is questionable whether this green washing will find acceptance on the financial market at all. that we think nuclear technology is dangerous. we still think a waste issue. as a result, we expressly reject the assessment on nuclear power under the commissions proposal investment in new nuclear energy facilities should be classified as
9:23 pm
a group if they meet certain technical standards. now that's led to accusations that the commission is he destroying the credibility of the european eco label, financial investments with germany leading the charge of nations against these proposals. that could put it in direct collision, of course, with the blocks or that heavy weight. that is france, 70 percent of energy here is generated from nuclear power. so convinced is president mack on that nuclear is the way forward. he's announced a 1000000000 euro investment. expanding the industry for gallant london in order to guarantee france is 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 really launch the construction of nuclear reactors in our country and continue
9:24 pm
to develop renewable energies. o has the support from some austin glock nations with slovak as prime minister agreeing that climate neutrality just can't 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 illegal opinion on nuclear power in the taxonomy in these 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. prague describes that as being a radical step. our government will have to work patiently and hard look for allies
9:25 pm
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. that move by germany including nuclear react is also could push up prices even further. and as 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 politicians. that run our country
9:26 pm
a lot focused on the interest of german industry and german customers. but that's the hollow, ideological agenda. and de paula to audiological agenda. the 1st is that they think they don't meet 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 the 2nd ideological agenda and a color 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
9:27 pm
even ski r t. paris or that doesn't for me, i'll be back in 33 minutes for them to look at your weekly stay with us or to internet. ah. who are all those driven by dreamers shaped banks center? some of those with dares sinks. we dare to ask july, an annual festival in st. petersburg, dedicated to dostoevsky. ah,
9:28 pm
the great right of the thinker and psychologist, people often turn to his work to understand russia and russians, perhaps even themselves. see what they sing on what it would be. it brought the matting vehicle, anita, wiley, theda, changing a rita transforming them as they read that to dust i asked is unique ability to stay ascii wants to tell us, you can better yourself. he makes you face your true self serve. while we cooper beyond conventions, rules of schemes, beyond boundaries and time, dostoevsky is a global brand whose classics, as everyone knows, i'm never out of stuff. ah oh, when i was showing wrong, when i'll prove,
9:29 pm
just don't a whole new world yet to see proud disdain becomes the advocate an engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah ah
