10:10 am
deescalate in conflict in east in ukraine, many of them are currently being housed in temporary camps in rushes roast of region is thomas explaining which does border that see. so proclaimed republics. here's what people there to tell us. you're good with the conditions here. a good, we had breakfast, lunch, we've been provided with beds. everything is on a good level. the only thing is that there are too many people here. scores of buses all fall. we spend the whole night sleeping in buses. i'm here with my granddaughter. people are good here, they help us a lot. my husband, son, daughter and grants on state and on bus. they don't know if it's worth coming here . we're afraid the 2014 may repeat itself. while the cranium president vladimir lensky says that he could reconsider the countries non nuclear status. he made the comments during a speech at the munich security conference. yo yo presents. i have instructed the
10:11 am
foreign ministry to convene a summit of the budapest memorandum signatory countries. if it fails to take place or refuses to provide security guarantees to ukraine, careful regard it and the close is signed in 1994 as note and void. we all know that the answer is to be a comedian, but this really does seem a joke too. far, just to be clear, tearing up the budapest memorandum means that ukraine goes nuclear, quite literally. and the backdrop to this is that as the soviet union was collapsing, key of pushed by the u. s. and the u. k. gave up. all it's nick can are austin. also everything from strategic bombers to wool heads to intercontinental ballistic missiles were handed over to russia. the successor, of course, to the u. s. a saw, it was in fact, one of the conditions on which washington recognized unsupported ukrainian independence said you're good to go. just 2 things. one news to weapons and to please just please don't turn into a hateful nation. americans will not support those who seek independence in order
10:12 am
to replace a far off tyranny with a local despotism. they will not aid those who promote a suicidal nationalism based upon ethnic hatred. while bush senior was likely came back to haunt him because in 2014 off to the crime in referendum unit to mishenko for me ukrainian, a prime minister had one of have phone calls leaked. and what did we have from the countries political establishment pledged to continue the non proliferation and tolerance? no, unfortunately what we had talked of phones and killing young. i hope i'll use all of my connections and the whole world will rise against the russians and bump them into oblivion. we need to kill them all with nuclear weapons and she wasn't one rogue voice. we had this occurred by ambassadors and the people to in fact, at that time in 2014, almost 50 percent of ukrainians supported nuclear rearmament. fast forward
10:13 am
a is to the music security conference. and this isn't the lensky chatting on the phone to his friend about his wild fantasy, you know, to massacre ethnic russians as it was with tymoshenko. he is, in all seriousness standing before the global lead and saying, i am considering we're making on one of the most significant documents of the 20th century. and it's really not far from being political blackmail because essentially zalinski saying, unless you own in front of me, do more, send me more weapons, more money, more troops preemptively. sanction moscow for what we're not sure. then i will fire up those nikita factories again. and while to put it mildly, especially at the moment, the west is not russia's biggest fun, i think even it recognizes that this would be total madness. the budapest memorandum is indeed a format without legal obligations under international law. but i think that now we need to try everything to avoid war. i mean, i would say that it's disappointing, that we're not hearing more outrage and condemnation from the west, new jeans, and stephen rescind such an incendiary statement. but then maybe it's not
10:14 am
surprising, unfortunate. we've seen it every single time how nato and its allies are failing to press key of to abide by those very simple fighting points in the midst agreements . instead, claiming that the criminal is the only violated up despite independent monitors on the ground eastern ukraine, saying, well, that's actually not entirely the case just so that we understand back in the day ukraine. what had the wilds thought? biggest new killer arsenal. just one of its has its exploded was about 37 times the size of the hiroshima atomic bomb 37 times. as part of the budapest memorandum, those facilities were destroyed. so yes, it would be a stretch. now that said, crucial elements are still in place. i'm talking about uranium mining, obviously the expertise research reactor and the capability to build delivery vehicles, missiles and aircraft. yes, it would be costly, crippling, in fact, especially for a country already on the brink of economic ruin. yes,
10:15 am
it would be time consuming. i know it would never be anywhere near the levels that we bought here and russia were in the us, but it would still be new connect capable to see at a time of global tension, an instability in europe, in a country that's ready in the throes of civil war and in the hands of a government which i've passed to shown us by selling its own citizens ready displays a disregard for peace, ensuring messes, dance. he was should fill the global community with horror, especially if as it claims its on the side of diplomacy de escalation. saskia taylor, there will, our guests told us more about the implications, the possible implications of prisons. lensky statement, very nervous, and he says so many different things on the same day that it's incredible, wants to meet the president. and then he says that he doesn't know what russia wants all, isn't it clear yet? and the 3rd, he says that he wants a date for joining nato. and then he speaks of the press memorandum, of course,
10:16 am
which is incredibly dangerous because the whole head in the west of ukraine are really dangerous people. i wonder if the european union understands who they support. it's to me that the real surprise is how little lane and sizes in brussels understand about the human geography of ukraine. you know, most populations east, a russian speaking forever and the use of language is great. it's a real scandal, i think he's trying to upgrade a government, a major itself was victim in this story. the care of as the, as the government which sacrificed its chance to be a nuclear power and believe, you know, those on the us now being turned over this even so that's really what he's trying to do. he's trying to put that on the map and therefore to effect, to reclaim more i was going forward as
10:17 am
a result of this sacrifice that'd be made in the past. i think that's what he's planning, or that's what he's positioning with this statement. when i made the ongoing crisis rusher and batteries have extended joint military trails to poster security at the west and border with more from that is r c sheila chaper valid? ah, we on believers in the breast region that borders poland and ukraine since february 10th, the launch scale joined russia. deliveries,
10:18 am
military exercise called the allied result 2022 has been held here. according to most good. these are the plans exercises the presence of russia and deliveries agreed on. the advent of last check closet have been repeatedly emphasized the drills, i totally defensive and absolutely transparent. officially, the exercises goal is to work at the top of a repelling external aggression strengthening. the protection of board is blocking the channels for the supply weapons, as well as countering terrorism and protecting interests of the union state of russia and deliveries as many as 5 training grounds and full ad fields are in vote . and there are many, most of them located in the south, west of beller is 170 kilometers on the border with ukraine. and poland. bay area is considered to do to the fact that foreign trips have concentrated on the other side of the board. and including the u. s. military and other nato forces in europe
10:19 am
. according to the bela russian foreign ministry, nato has conducted 3 times as many exercises in the region ever to pass. by the way, this place is located far away from the de la guns republics, where the inside of conflict with ukraine has been brewing for several years. all the exercise has already been completed as trips have full filled, that talks look at other news now in canada, police in riot gear have sweat through the capital. they're arresting at least a 170 demonstrators over the past 2 days and towing away blockading trucks. the government pushes to finally stand, power persists and protests that have gone on for almost a month. now, against those covey restrictions and vaccine mandates, please stepped in to re take control of the streets in front of parliament. authority say some demonstrates is who wearing body armor, while others carry smoke grenades and fireworks for protest. leaders were among
10:20 am
those to rested. distressing video to be shared online sharing mental police forcing their way through crowds this weekend. oh my goodness, a . 7 some protest is buffoon to kneeling in prayer, in an apparent show with peace and unity. canadian christian pastors made a joint statement to condemning invocation of emergency powers and the government's quote, tyrannical actions. freedom convoy representatives also denounced the government's
10:21 am
use of force against the protests in the capital. adding that they've asked the truckers to move from the parliament precinct to avoid further clashes. many who gathered in ottawa have accused the authorities there of being too heavy handed. here 20 days and they're being very heavy handed. today they're pushing back with dream. this is not canada guys, visit the dictatorship, you know, running our country we try to touch the community and i stepped in between her and them so they couldn't take her and they tricked me out from under my feet. feet underneath. thank god man i you guys told me right back. oh right. well, despite the criticism that the injury most were police chief does say that he is pleased with the progress this be made in removing the demonstrators, we made some very important progress in safely removing this unlawful protest from our streets. we backed up those warnings with
10:22 am
a deliberate and methodical operation using lawful and safe tactics. we are, we all saw that this is the protesters were aggressive with the officers and we needed to use horses at one point. as a result, we responded this morning by adding helmets and baton to our equipment for the safety of our officers. freedom convoy organized rick wall lo occasions, the canadian government of violating people's constitutional rights. they've denied so many of our rights the last couple years. and now people have taken action and thing enough is enough because because our provincial and federal leaders, you know, they wouldn't stand with the people over the past couple years. now that you know, we're practicing our, our rates a peaceful protest. that's the one last freedom that we feel we have left in the country. and now even though it's been stripped away from us, so extremely concerning. and we can't believe that our 3 country people, country like canada, has gotten us to this place. i can only speak for myself,
10:23 am
but i, i feel that our federal government is basically trying to control each and every single canadian at this point that they haven't even as much as open up an opportunity to dialogue with the federal government. i think it's, it's very disturbing in the exact opposite from what we should see from a democratic peaceful country. whether i need to not just taking place in canada is capital us truckers have also joined their canadian, came to parts to again blocked the border between the 2 countries on line fundraising for the protests have also been blocked and the counts of people linked to the demonstrations frozen, leaving some in financial limbo journalist and blogger horn southern who spoke was from the boarders, told kevin owen earlier that suspending bank accounts could actually back fire on the government. i'd say 90 percent of the truck you're already left. they're headed down to multiple locations. i'm in july, british columbia right now. tom for them are going to be headed down to a row near the border that lease have actually shut down and checkpoints with raj
10:24 am
to ensure that no convoy so got to go there to shut it down to see how many people are going to that use organization because 212 was which way they play, but there's like about a 1000 people. you're like i said 90 percent of lot. but you still got, you know, got people across the way. it's shocking. this is the opposite side of canada, right. this is the opposite. charging auto rainy day. you phillips out, people coming out to media and the government over the mandate issue. these have been known vall, it demonstrates is the see the bank account floppy emergencies that has been used as that goes down. yeah, so i'm speaking to some people on the ground here. they travel from hours out. say i was everything i've donated, i've taken part in the convoy protests. 2 and now i'm not even going to the bank
10:25 am
account anymore. so what do i have to lose about a mortgage is the rent food? that's an excellent question, and i think that's why you're going to keep seeing the approach as well. because people are terrified, they have nothing to lose at that point. and this is going to be a dangerous place, because he may squash the protested auto watch. but you can have a crazy day to walk them all across the country of other protective showing up and coming out saying fine, want to take everything from us. you want to take our bank accounts, our jobs were going to have nothing better to do then to camp out and whether it be killed, toronto, ottawa, city to cross country that are not going to shop lane or shine. ah, no. britain's main opposition parties demanding an investigation into where the individuals connected with the kremlin, have been buying influence, and borrowers. johnson's government, with millions of pounds in donations, labor party leader. the case dharma says, russian sources have contributed around 2000000 pounds to johnson's tory party
10:26 am
since became prime minister 2 years ago. the spotlights is focused on jewel, british, and russian citizens. is anybody with the right to vaccine k by law has the right to make campaign donations, political commentator anthony webber that says russia is being unfairly targeted. i mean, to escalate intentions. crime, all the political policies received turner shoes and some quite large. and some of these decorations from people who are originally from various other countries in the world. so if they want to just pinpoint some which had come from people who were russian systems and had because i had change pressures, baez's, then they need to. it's fun my accusation and respects ball policy because it's cool donations to people from all countries. i'm not just target russia,
10:27 am
if donations from russian individuals were a say much influence, why have they not influence the government policy towards russia and ukraine are not, not at all the way shape or form. in fact, you could argue the government's position is actually quite hard. why remember, flexible what is solely need is for some independent minded phase to not necessarily stick up for russia, but she saw insisting that the british interests locked off their in their it guy bill contracts. and russia is dealt with this fairly as any other country in the world, but anti corruption, greek transparency international ha slammed. britain is a global hub for money laundering. while placing much of the blame on alleged
10:28 am
russian influence buying. the greek reported that russians connected with the kremlin or involved in g b s. business practices have bought up to one and a half 1000000000 pounds worth of property in the u. k. about a 3rd of which is in the country's political center, westminster. and it linked over 2000 british wretched companies to, to russian corruption cases. but anthony webber, again, does say that russia shouldn't be single direct for worldwide problem is why did was she was not just ah, individuals from one country as a very broad scale thing. so you can't just take long country and say, well, it's all their fault because it isn't as well. my problem was wealthy individuals, well, the corporations, somebody trying to de general, united, quite genuine avoidance, all the harm paying tax and some where they're trying to
10:29 am
avoid putting taxes i should be paying. so it's quite a complicated subject by 8 inch per school as well as economic, as well as individual. so that brings you up today just coming up to how fast 6 here are moscow always good to have the company go back again in the ah ah ah ah ah ah with
10:30 am
ah, with ah, with mm. welcome to worlds apart. it's hard to find a more discouraged and tempting subject for a learning conversation than the existence of the transcendent, like to forbidden fraud. it calls an ass from the great sports.
