will remain in the shallows. ah, ah, nato publicly misled russia into believing the block was prepared to accept you train as a member is by privately telling here that it cannot join the us led alliance. admit president, the landscape. it is all these large caliber ojo kind of resolve. what the point of the ship was for transport troops of heavy equipment. we report from ukraine key port hubs. the dance recently captured, find the russian military now being used for humanitarian relief efforts to help civilians in the embattled city of mario class. yemen face the growing humanitarian crisis as activists raise the alarm as failure to meet relief funds quoted for the war torn country. while all life on ukraine is shifting
2:01 pm
attention from the conflict in them and that would be good to store for result and the civilians across the country you will be in the near future. ah welcome. this is our t international. it's good to have you with us. let's get straight to the latest developments around ukraine presidents, lensky se nato had previously refused to accept ukraine into the alliance, but still kept telling russia that the doors into the u. s. lead block remained open for kias. meanwhile, zalinski has been slammed by some israeli officials off to he can pass the ongoing conflict in ukraine to the holocaust and cold on television to put pressure on moscow. plus e u is reportedly discussing an embargo on russian oil imports as part of
2:02 pm
a 5th package of sanctions against moscow, over its military action in ukraine where nato's refusal to rule out ukraine's membership in the block is to blame for the conflict with russia, which could have been avoided if only the us lead alliance had made its real position on ukraine plates and moscow. and that's the take away from president landscape, the latest interview to west and media. i requested them personally to say direct please. if we're going to accept antonio or nato in a year or 2 or 5, and the response was really clear or not going to be an a 2 member, but publicly was the doors will remain open. so basically, it turns out that there was a chance of avoiding this conflict altogether. zalinski saying that nato has essentially been bluffing about the possibility of accepting ukraine into the military alliance. all this time comes as a real shock. basically, the west could have potentially stopped this whole situation of an escalation of
2:03 pm
tensions into armed conflict between russia and ukraine if it just told moscow the truth. and let's not forget back when joe biden was actually a senator, he also warned against the further eastward expansion of nato, he said it could have possibly lead to an open conflict between russia and the west . and in 1990 nato. actually promised the soviet union, but it would not expand any farther east than the older river in central europe. and since the western media began its hysteria, campaign late last year, russia's main negotiating point has been to hold the military alliance to its promise. lucille new conflict with juno, one's own conflicts of bloodshed. we want to resolve the situation where political and diplomatic means we should at least have some clear and understandable legal guarantees. this is the purpose of a proposal which has been written and sent to brussels and washington time and time again. moscow has said that accepting ukraine and to nato would be a violation of several treaties of the council for security and cooperation in
2:04 pm
europe. agreements that specifically states that a country cannot enter military alliance at the expense of another country's national security. in response to this washington just called that a non starter negotiations. and of course, moscow itself was not very happy about that. the new book will know. they literally put the principle of freedom of choice, of alliances at the forefront, completely ignoring the conditions that were agreed, the highest level on the inn admissibility of infringing on the security of, of the states. and has been a negative response to our security proposals about the non expansion of nato eastwood. this cannot satisfy us. they maintain the rights of any country to choose joint and change alliances. it's non negotiable. after zalinski is recent statement, we now know that ukraine never had a real chance to become a member state of nato. but if russia knew that it's very possible that diplomacy could have diffused this situation that's exploded into a serious escalation. and the don boss conflicts that already been going on for
2:05 pm
some time. now. instead, nato just decided to tease every one. basically, nicholas door remains open. oh, the enlargement of night thought has been a great success if that helps to spread democracy freedom. we will not compromise on our core principles. now, one more thing that's a bit embarrassing for zalinski is that he just kind of laid down and accepted. the west's rejection of what was one of his government's main goals. and when these hostilities with russia broke out, the washington said no to sending troops that said no to opening a no fly zone. it basically said no to any serious direct help to ukraine and basically left to fend for itself. a ukrainian medical official has been forced to take back his own words after claiming he ordered the castaway. shit have captured russian soldiers. he's not a doctor again, a dangerous thank tony ukrainian tv channel. earlier i instructed

2:07 pm

2:08 pm
credible. the doctors don't make that statement, but he's made it well the who say, like i said, you know, i did so on. why did we supported rushes? defense ministry has released footage apparently showing the ukrainian multiple rocket launch and his team hiding near residential buildings. rushing forward is followed the vehicle to an abandoned shopping center, reportedly to reload on munition, russian military officials on the building was being used by ukrainian troops to store i munition for heavy weapons, but floated shows moscow's hypersonic precision as a surface miss el qindzhong hitting the walk a launcher, the kremlin non ukrainian nationalist forces have been targeting civilians under was essential buildings, in contrast to russia, which use is exclusively high position weapons against its targets. earlier the mer of kiev said that the shelling of

2:11 pm
russia's black sea fleet and the ost landing ship to stage this operation translated from russian. this is a large marine ship code named alligator by nato. it is harmed the sludge caliber, odo cannon for example. but the point of this ship is to transport troops and heavy equipment. it can fit as many as 20 tanks or 40 armored personnel carriers along with hundreds upon hundreds of troops. this conflict is one of the most intense in recent decades. both sides of leverage, sophisticated and highly destructive weapons, for russia's operation to succeed. it is paramount. the troops, us applied and reinforced non stop, but at which it was our arrival here is a milestone mantle in opens up completely new opportunities for the black safely to use existing ukrainian infrastructure for our logistics operations. this logistics

neo nazis responsible for killings and atrocities. to a cowed or i guess the of o t for the dusk. ah, the u. s. is reportedly increasing supplies to saudi arabia of patriot anti missile into santa's, which have been used by rat and the devastating war in yemen. the pentagon being ramping up the lies in recent weeks and has been delivering to the saudi led coalition since it began its military intervention. and yet, and again, the rebels in 2015, according to the latest numbers between 2017 and last year alone, washington, the delivery of major weapons to the saudis shows up by 106 percent. will another key western supply of the u. k is said to have licensed more than 20000000000 pounds and weapon resells to riyadh. since the start of war in yemen. or britons
2:15 pm
prime minister recently traveled to saudi arabia for talks on energy security and ending the case reliance on russian oil and gas from a far as johnson's critics of slander, slanting for the native, citing the issue of human rights violations in saudi arabia. the western supports of we add some military efforts and yemen has been accused of, i can't contribute things to what the united nations calls the humanitarian crisis and the water country. and we should warn you, some of the following images may be distressing. however, the un has so far managed to raise barely a 3rd of the sum required for humanitarian crisis management in yemen. this year, with saudi arabia and the united arab emirates among the top 3 don't as last year. not providing any funds this hall, this time. the you and say such a failure and pledging is due to the ongoing conflict in ukraine and bashir omar, the red cross spokesperson on yemen, believes that the sifting of global attention may cause devastating consequences.
2:16 pm
the world is shifting attention to word or other conflicts in like the conflict in a few, we are like more recently the conflict in, in no crane and they are and we call the international community the, the powerful countries tune not to abandon the crisis in yemen. any, you know, in a shift in attention from the conflict in them and that would lead to get to strong results. and the, the civilians across the country will fill it in the near future. if the world doesn't pay more attention to the light of your many people around 20000000 yemen is 2 thirds of the country's population, already require humanitarian aid and our feelings to kill the hero mar again, says yemen, count cope without international humanitarian assistance. this situation will
2:17 pm
lead to, to, i grieve, ye ating the situation, the humanitarian situation off of a 1000000 albia many people across the country. i, a millions of families in yemen are relying on international organization to provide them with food and, and food items. i mean a few, a few see the whole picture of the humanitarian situation in yemen. we see like at 20000000 avia, many people are in need for humanitarian assistant. we have more than 60000000 albumin, the people who are food insecure and we have like 4000000 women and children are minorities. we have also 70000000 yamini. they don't have access to a health. and the water and sanitation across the can to the country is functioning with that 50 percent of all wits health facilities and capacity. therefore, any shortage in defined would, would, would really, would greatly deviate the,
2:18 pm
the humanitarian situation in the country. ah, is ready. lawmakers have reacted with horror at the ukrainian president's bid to compare the current conflict in his country to the holocaust. in a speech to the israeli parliament, zalinski came russia, wanted to exterminate all ukrainians like the nazis plan to do to jews as well, had maintained a neutral stance towards the conflict, but silence his outburst was planned it outrageous with m pays pointing out ukrainian ultra nationalists massacre, thousands of jews in the 1940s shall know number of these said, but the answer is still up to you. dear brothers and sisters. and you have to live with this answer. people of israel ukrainians made their choice 80 years ago to save jews. that is why the righteous peoples of the world are among us, people of israel. now you have such a choice. his criticism of israel was legitimate,
2:19 pm
as was his raising expectations of us, but not his infuriating and ridiculous comparison to the holocaust. in his attempt to rewrite history and to erase the role of the ukrainian people in the attempts to exterminate the jewish people, the war is terrible, but the comparison to the horrors of the holocaust and the final solution is outrageous. war is always a terrible thing, but every comparison between a regular war as difficult as it is and the killing of millions of jews and gas chambers as part of the final solution is a complete distortion of history. and his big philanthropy fight at his jewish heritage alleging that ukraine saved jews in world war 2. and israel said, now we pay the debt. as a holocaust historian said, ukraine should be ashamed of what it did to jews in world war 2. not proud to him. to say only ukrainian sell juicer. now of course is a gross distortion of historical record because far more ukrainians may participate in the mass, murder of jews during the holocaust than those who held as
2:20 pm
a completely source false comparison. ah, there's no question that there is no similarity. ah, we're not talking about the same things. the invasion is not, well, of course the invasion is an act of war, but that is not the holocaust. these phenomenon, although, as these food comparisons and not only least in europe, i mean eastern europe. it's the notorious for these things. but throughout the world, derek tents by various people have a cause. who want to attract attention? one would listen. one list a. in other words, contributions, they claim that the issue that they are representing is similar to the holocaust way. this is actually a tremendous compliment to the people devoted their lives to try to teach,
2:21 pm
educate the world about the holocaust. it's important lessons of our course and all of that. and basically the reason that people want to compare themselves to the house was because many people know, well fully understand that our course was the worst tragedy in the annals of man car. the chairman of russia is low a house that parliament has called on his american counterparts to impeach their president joe biden. so i think the u. s. law that prohibits the funding of a notorious ukrainian neo nazi italian t. callum open explains while we had the speaker of the russian duma, citing a law and allocation of funding to the pentagon that was passed in 2017. that specifically name to be as ob, battalion as a neo nazi an extremist group. and while it allocated funding for the ukranian government, it outlawed any funding from united states for that specific grouping. the as our
2:22 pm
battalion. now, when the speaker of the russian duma spoke about this, he pointed out that this is a group that has specifically engaged in actions targeting russian speaking people . and that they are an outlaw extremist organization in russia. here's what he said . the weapons that are shipped to ukraine now end up with neo nazi battalions, including the off that's a reason to impeach, biden. he broke the law, the blame for the blood of peaceful civilians which has been shed by the neo nazis of the czar, lies with the u. s. president. that's a matter for the hague tribunal. now it has been revealed out of the united states, has been engaged in training extremist forces in ukraine for quite some time. this as a battalion, i was made an official division of the ukrainian military in 2014 by ukrainian president poorest shank. the group is notorious for its extremist rhetoric. it's violent attacks on individuals, migrants, roma, other communities that have been targeted by the organization. and it has been
2:23 pm
widely can down internationally for its activity. now the group is reported dab roughly 900 combatants and they have in gauged in quite a bit of terrorism and violence against russian speaking peoples in eastern ukraine . and even among people in the united states that were quite critical of russia and quite supportive of the euro made an event, there was concern about weapons blowing into their hands. and us support going to these forces. but we now understand it is very clear, the added states has been training and arming forces associated with the as the talent. and that raises concerns about the legality. and that's the grounds on which we have the speaker of the russian duma. talking about the possibility of teaching joe biden, for such things as a violation of u. s. law than died, is something that has caused quite a bit of outrage around the world. iraq has marked a painful anniversary. 19 years since the country was born and invaded my us led
2:24 pm
coalition on a false false premise of going off the weapons of mass destruction, which were never found. despite the failure to ultimately justify the attack on iraq, which came to tens of thousands of lives. the u. s. media were quick to beat the drums of war back in march, 2003. this is fox news and fox news channel. continuing coverage of the campaign, which now has begun to liberate and disarm iraq. know that they can execute these missions into baghdad and have everybody come back safe and sound is a testament to franklin professionalism. and also waiving to the troops as they went by giving them a thumbs up. the soldiers themselves feeling a certain sense of relief waving back. so the living of a shot back and forth between the 2 was a sense of gratitude, apparently. and it seemed to have gone reasonably well. newspapers across the western world, we're eager to support the invasion. despite the violence inflicted by the shock
2:25 pm
and old tactic of the us led coalition military, which caused massive collateral damage and was even described by as creates as, as a can to dropping a nuclear bomb. shutting the country down would entail both the physical destruction of appropriate infrastructure and the shut down in control of the flow of all vital information and associated commer so rapidly as to achieve a level of national shock. akin to the effect that dropping nuclear weapons on hiroshima and nagasaki had on the japanese. there's no doubt there's democracy. oh, there's nothing new. hypocrisy is the name of the game when you have 2 political foes of this nature. but know the united states a today trying to paint russia as a nation that violates international law by carrying out an unlawful war of aggression. there's no comparison. there was no analogous situation,
2:26 pm
a rock um that it to what had been transpiring in the dorm bus for 8 years up there the, there's just no comparison between the 2. not say in the united states when it went into iraq, intended to commit war crimes. no, i'm just saying that they have much more heavy handed approach, which focused more on the destruction of military objectives and less on reducing the impact of war on civilian populations, rushes more morally grounded in its defense of the russian speaking citizens of dom bus were subjected to 8 years of unrelenting violence by the ukrainian government, or they had much more justification in going to their defense in the united states had in pursuing a falsified claims of weapons of mass destruction. the error may thank people's company here and i t international all the latest updates. you can check our website ah
2:27 pm
o h. and i assume indeed because it made an all black. mm hm. still up on. yeah. so can you, scott, i'm yeah, with the sport. what kind of board got missed this deal with the why would it be over? good, a good, huge. what you're more difficult does was too late to set up our perf,
2:28 pm
reload difficult rhoda. then you shouldn't have been really well. yes you said with us. but if you're with somebody, see wayne lee, but i do them by soon. ah, oh, well, it shows the wrong one. i just don't hold any world. yes. to see how this thing becomes the advocate and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves will support, we choose to look for common ground.
2:29 pm
oh, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? high selection for community. are you going the right way, or are you being led to somewhere? which direction? what is true was is great. in the world corrupted, you need to descend so join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. ah ah
2:30 pm
ah. hello and welcome to cross talk. we're all things considered. i'm peter lavelle since the start of russia's military operation and ukraine. the west is talked at russia and russians crushes side of the story is essentially absent and intentionally. so on this edition of the program, we talk with 2 preeminent russian scholars about their own country and ukraine. ah, there's got these issues and more, i'm joined by my guess, demetrius so sloppy is the deputy director of the central for comprehensive european international studies at the higher school of economics. and we also have .
