12:01 am
broadcasting from our studios in moscow with news and commentary on the war in ukraine. this is our t international. now the battle for multiple appears to have reached its final stage as increasingly more territory seems to be coming under the control of russian forces. and they're don bass allies. moscow claims it is making extensive efforts to provide civilians in those areas with food and other humanitarian aid, as well as evacuate them if needed. many have accused ukrainian soldiers of forcing local residents to remain in the war zone to use them as human shields. actually, with our guys, we have reports. amidst the ruins of mario, both the broken towers and apartment blocks. it is easy to spot the front lines. you bones, he tanks and marching infantry, but the fuzz give it away where the city burns the fighting rages. this is as close
12:02 am
as we could fly to the as of industrial complex ukrainian nationalists inside have and t drone equipment which they used to intercept and take over nearby drones. we almost la stars. the streets here are safer, mildly safer. it may seem remarkable, but thousands of people are inside these neighborhoods, some who have refused to evacuate, and others who have never had the opportunity. those still held as human shields by ukrainian nationalists, human shields, and even worse ther civilians at the school. and every day they walk to the local
12:03 am
bakery, that's a school over there. there's the bakery as every day local residents go there to collect water and ease off nationalists forced them to carry food in ammunition to their fighters, forcing civilians to carry ammunition for nationalists. fighters across the front lines is a war crime. it is prohibited by the geneva conventions which state that civilians may never be forced into dangerous labour directly related to military operations, but ukrainian as off nationalist saw a long past caring. they only care for their own. as part of the answer, several days ago we shuttle lookout soldiers who cleared the building, reported that the body was gone, saw the shot land myself. in all likelihood, they carry away the bodies of foreign fighters and their own fighters, so that we are unable to identify them. there have been many a's off nationalists and other fighters killed. but they always carry away the bodies. this is 100
12:04 am
percent. sure. all our guys know this, the end game for as all fighters and mercenaries is clear, they have adopted stolen tactics all over the city to delay the inevitable. the liberation of mary opal at all costs. perhaps so been for a diplomatic solution to the conflict. they have shown by holding thousands, tens of thousands of civilians hostage as human shields that for the nationalists, new price is too high. more ad guys, the of r t for mario ball ah, incredibly intense images there, while the russian military and its allies engage in heavy fighting with the remnants of the ukrainian forces in mario pool near the as of seal factory and the
12:05 am
cities port r corresponded among coastal visits, the town of mon gosh, about 15 kilometers outside of marble, where personnel from russia's federal biomedical agency have been assisting a local doctors originals with. i'm getting a 100. so for messages from people in russia who are looking for their loved ones. and also here and maria paul, when i arrive, people are recording video messages to their loved ones in russia. and a lot of the time i managed to get a hold of their and their relatives. and this is just one of the messages and this woman contacted her daughter and she's about to see her for the 1st time in months . hello. yes. hello maggie with used to come over. you a good one. you got it will be bushels to social with. nice is already a line. yes. a little with
12:06 am
people. not with yours with furniture. yeah. is a little my dear tanya, i'm alive and healthy. i go as a former red army soldier and current refugee under the surname. gregorio, i am writing to you to tell you that everything is fine, little i'm planning to come to the capital of our motherland. anesco, then use the weather as good. we hope the darkness we've lived through has finally ended. life goes on when you were about 15 kilometers away from the city of maria, pull in town, all for mongers. this is where the offers the ambulances bring wounded civilian civilians who were her hurt in the marble russian doctors are working here. this spend this sent a special,
12:07 am
a mission to help doctors here than as people's republic. i'm great, this is the 1st time i'm being sent to hotspot. it's difficult, just as for any normal person, it stirs up feelings have been simply pain. we face all sorts of problems here. we're providing emergency assistance to people and also trying to implement preventive measures. so that people don't get ill, the children are mostly calm, they're mostly nearing their parents behavior. so it's important to stay calm, hutto and we're still at the hospital here in mongolia where a wound the civilians are brought from a rouble. also this is the only hospital in the area and a local dog is and russian doctors are also treating local patients from various illnesses, including just a simple cost consultation services, community number civilians, health problems, there's disease, we strive to provide medical care to everyone who asked for we have enough medicines here in the hospital, we work very closely with the local doctors as well as many doctors from tonight's
12:08 am
together with them we examine patients and decide whether to evacuate them to in that school. as i've heard that they don't, they have a shortage of food here and a water. so we decided to bring well potatoes, orleans, carrots, cabbage, some canned goods for them as well as well. they're very, very thankful for that and we will continue bringing them food here for as long as they need it. and e delegation has visited a mass grave in the ukranian town of butcher, near keith, amid accusations that russian forces killed civilians in the area. the european commissions of president ursula vander lion, expressed sorrow for the dead and blamed quote putin's army. the unthinkable has happened. here. we have seen the face of forty's army
12:09 am
here in which we saw our humanity being shattered. and it is the whole world is morning with the people of which it was the e delegations 1st visit to ukraine. since the war ruptured in february, russian troops had left the router. i made an announcement by moscow that it was redirecting forces to the fight for the don baths where russia has recognized the republics of lou gone. scans done yet as independent countries. within days of the russian military departure from a butcher, ukrainian national guard soldiers entered the town and lodged the war crimes accusations against moscow. we heard from the co director of the international action center, anti war group, sara founders, who says that no matter who is to blame for the killing only one narrative is allowed in the western media. and big difference is that this war and each of the levels of war propaganda hard to impose devastating sanctions
12:10 am
on russia that will impact all of europe. and so only one story is allowed and the media is completely directed in the west. and any other story is completely excluded. russia demanded the right that the facts be presented to the un security council that was refused. none of these facts have been presented about boucher or the photos or the evidence to any legitimate investigative body. even the pentagon has not reviewed these photos, forensic experts who certainly note that bodies that have been on the ground for days and more are entirely different and holding bound hands. damn, those that are appearing in photos who are certainly appear very recently dead within
12:11 am
less than 24 hours. so there are many, many questions about what happened in butcher who was killed and who killed them. and none of this has come forth as evidence. and yet the media is more than willing to run with it. the white house has, again demanded that india come out against russia, saying it's quote, disappointed with new jellies neutrality amid moscow's military operation in ukraine. us officials have threatened to india with significant and long term consequences if it doesn't fall in line against the kremlin. there are certainly areas where we have been disappointed by both china and india's decisions in the context of the invasion. washington had previously warned india against buying russian weapons, and while some countries have piled the economic pressure on moscow, india has stood firm and continued imports of russian oil. but the white house is strongly opposed to this idea with the spokesperson gen saki,
12:12 am
saying it's not in india's best interest to maintain such close ties with russia. we don't believe it's in india is interest to accelerate or increase imports of russian energy and other commodities. every country should abide by the sanctions that we have announced and that we're implementing around the world. india and the world's 3rd largest oil importer has been hit hard by rising prices for crude. the middle east accounts for the bulk of india's oil imports with iraq and saudi arabia, the top 2 suppliers. now at least 2 major indian refineries plan to buy less saudi oil than usual, instead of opting for cheaper imports from russia. political commentator g t data says it's a good deal for india, india. well, obviously she got the best deal that it gets and if the options are offering the best deal when it comes to the changes in the uncertainty by that i think india is already classified on this issue as russian, if that is the cheapest group,
12:13 am
that is available in the other in used to be dependent on russian military equipment since for many decades, even though there is a lot of diversification. and there's a lot of new generation. i don't think india will let you come to a point where it has to go site, because a all right, it was odd years got dish meant of all my people are in the nation system. therefore, india with a back for a x being engaged with both sides without falling into the trap of looking at this entire conflict in american rush. in binary india's neighbor pakistan is also a target of pressure from the u. s. and the u. as western powers urges,
12:14 am
i'm a body to condemn russia's military operation in ukraine. pakistan's prime minister him on con, has opposed those calls, saying no country should dictate to others about taking sides in a foreign conflict. cons, russia friendly policies have even brought him to the verge. of being removed from office or she's done quarter comments. dark clouds of descent are hanging over pakistan's government prime minister imran khan is facing a vote of no confidence on saturday over his support for russia. but he says, he's ready to fight my message to our nation is that i have always and will continue to fight for pakistan till the last bull. the vote is set to come. not long after con, tried to dissolve parliament and call for new elections. the court stepped in know, and vetoed the move the advice tendered by the prime minister on her about april 3rd, 2022 to the president to dissolve. the assembly was contrary to the constitution and have no legal effect. no doubt the opposition, which stood on the precipice of disaster this happy about this political turnaround
12:15 am
on k to day, the supreme court with this verdict saved the future of pakistan saved pakistan's constitution restored the sovereignty of pakistan's parliament. unfortunately, for con, his opposition has the support of the military, which has taken a hard blind pro key of stance, certainly that i should in vienna, his, you've been very unfortunate a hold to look. we will have a good 1000000 b. but if you didn't, and ha, ha, ha, ha, destroyed still, pakistan's prime minister is refusing to budge on his support for moscow. why would we condemn russia? all your slaves? that whatever you say we will do. he staring down the barrel of a vote of no confidence. he is contending with the combined forces of the opposition and the military. and yet con, standing firm, accusing washington of working behind the scenes of it all. how can i accept the result when the entire process is discredited? democracy functions on moral authority. what moral authority is left off to
12:16 am
disconnect events? the move to oust me is blatant interference in domestic politics by the united states con even says he found a letter, allegedly, from the united states that mentions the vote of no confidence before it was even filed, washington denies it, sent to anything like that. but there is no denying the pro us sentiment among the packets to any opposition and military. we had historically excellent relations with the us. the good army we have today is largely built and trained by the us. the best equipment we have is u. s. equipment. say con ends up with a short end of the stick. you can bet islam of odd will be added to the list of washington's allies is and in terms of possible u. s. involvement, that's at best, a little suspicious. what's happening within cautious bond, and that is the fight going on between prime minister in bron khan who has lost his majority, but yet not step out. and generally, but you off will be all the chief and what washington is kind of
12:17 am
a hidden thing. and what it seems like, but general budge, why is moving more towards the us? why the bron khan is sort of moving more toward china and sort of an p. america to washington is kind of pushing that kind of give them inside pocket. saw number one, the trauma lives that washington, whatever the fees, it's all nationally improved. and what is a need? those interest? russia has one foreign states to stop pumping lethal weapon re into ukraine as it's being used to commit war crimes, including by key of top fighting force, the openly neo nazi as of battalion we call of the international community to give an objective assessment of the crimes of your credit informations to stop supply them with weapons, and to encourage keith to abandon unacceptable methods of warfare. the u. s. and
12:18 am
u. k. were providing weapons to ukraine even before the beginning of the conflict. in many more western states have begun sending lethal aid to kiev in the last 2 months. washington has even approved a bill to use is lendlease act in world war 2 era program to lend arms and other supplies to ukraine. g 7 member, italy has also pledged to provide legal aid with the prime minister, taking a tough line against moscow. but growing numbers of italians are angry at their premier, seeing the sending of lethal laid as counter productive to ending the conflict in italy. the hash tag not in my name is trending on twitter with italians and other europeans urging their governments to stop sending weapons to ukraine. renee morgan's ratty, i am very against ascending a weapon. it's no quip ins, do not increase v as in negotiation approaches, there are poles that say that the majority of italians want a serious peace negotiation and not the shipment of our good united in the idea of
12:19 am
sending weapons as a political decision. and i don't think it will help the ukrainian population from a social point of view. i disagree. we are fighting a war by sending weapons. when we understand that this does not work out, assuming that it's an awful idea that would only serve to escalate tensions, it can only lead to higher violence of what it doesn't make any sense that they are spending money that should be invested in health care. and other sectors finance cream, v o. d. i to me an a shipment of weapons to me is not justified by sending weapons . we are sustaining the war and i am against a 3 get it he thought in we are the lab and me, i send sending weapons as a betrayal because the italian government has agreements with russia to pull people to me. italy is behaving like tradeoffs. it is following an american line that i don't like a false democracy or miserable some italian politicians say that sending more weapons does not help to resolve the conflict which has had a serious impact on italy's economy. not the right contrary olivia,
12:20 am
the alternative party is again sending these weapons because they will risk rekindling and already very serious conflict for the civilian population of europe has chosen to be a belligerent institution. that is reorienting its economy towards war. and this has serious implications for the whole european economy and manufacturing open, which in many jobs are risk and there is a risk of a food crisis unit. let me say my asked me to get down there. frankly, we are dismayed about thinking of rearmament when europe spends over 233000000000 euros on armament 4 times more than russia. so shot, it's unacceptable. what we have to think about instead is a foreign and defense policy that is unique to europe. this give to the armaments industry as an unacceptable madness with addition to the russian authorities have echoed that view. by those time politicians saying the e sending more weapons and sanctioning moscow are acts of aggression and russia has a right to defend itself. that says that you witnessed, issued
12:21 am
a 5th wave of measures this time targeting the russian arms. producer clash, knock off the defense ministry spokesperson that you got to kind of shift golf as well as german monograph, the head of russia's largest bank. use dates have joined the u. s. in end in coal imports, which some critics say is likely to push the continence already skyrocketing energy prices. even higher russian ships will no longer be allowed to access european ports and the export of a v, a sion fuel software and sensitive equipment to moscow will be banned. the you will also stop buying timber, cement, and alcohol from russia. of the u. k. and the use food industries are facing a supply crisis in sky high prices, mid import shortages, including at britons, comic fishing ships shops. so we're just experiencing some joint pricing very, very expensive. the smaller fuel for delivering the facial store and the fish as
12:22 am
well. all the, all the back of living for these go back to people spending hours. busy we heard from a german human rights lawyer who thinks the you should stop following washington's lead because the economic costs from the sanctions are just too high. i don't believe in sanctions anyway because sanctions or measure to solve any problem. and the new sanctions as well. they will have the serious impact, again on european citizens and on european states. i think it's the, it's a stupid idea. it's a stupid idea to have sanctions to stop coal import. stupid to store any ties. and if we look at the history from the wall and the 99990 number that had been sanctions against any
12:23 am
leading wall country natal states like they are done now. and i think to plan then knowledge of symmetric measure and it's a measure which is really impacts the european citizens negative and the german government under and stopped to run after the us government in the escalation of sanction sanctions and war. french presidential hopeful, marine the pen has rallied against anti russia sanctions that will actually hurt europe ahead of this month election. the national rally leader is gaining fast and the polls on incoming manual micron with the pen standing out for her less hostile stance towards russia or your correspondence show davinsky has more the opinion polls may have already called the 1st part of this selection. a repeat of 2017,
12:24 am
but though is apparently no longer in the running on not giving up the fight and with a 3rd of people still yet to make up their mind. there is a lot to play for, middle shall, ends and mo, quite a long way behind them. so the chances of them being in the 2nd round a is, are relatively low. just 2 months ago, this election was due to the futon regular theme security, tara migration. but since february 24th, a lot has changed. the cost of living, including the price of energy and soaring food costs are biting, some of which has come directly as a result of sanctions that were imposed on russia by the european union. cooper for us. here in france, it's already very, very hard regardless of ukraine, but i'm against war, but the french can't have immigrant every time from africa, from the south,
12:25 am
from everywhere. it's impossible. it's too much for us. i pay 52 percent of my income on taxes and social security. it's been spent on 8, but no 8 is going to me football. it's in tenable wholesale fixing kikhia. it's a wild white crisis. a price of a liter of petra is certainly going to impact every sake associated with transporting raw materials. that is all wages must follow this upward trend though this going to be trouble ya. bob ecology sick. while emmanuel lack corn has been predicted to be a shoe in for reelection, summer openly voicing concern maureen le pen can be elected president of the republic. it's one minute to midnight. impossible to say that it was not foreseeable. i have been a learning and fighting for years. of course, marine la pen can when michael's at 5 years of leadership is seen france face to most show us times. there have been protests ranging from the yellow,
12:26 am
vast movement which started initially over taxes on fuels to anger over his plans to increase the retirement age. and in the latest blue to his hopes. the french senate has now launched an investigation. this is into the he's that government's payments made to consultancy firms in 2021 that reached a record level of 1000000000 euros. were still one american firm. mckinsey which has received substantial payments is said to have not paid corporation tax for a decade. i think they are damaging because of the french. we're talking about visceral feelings. the french do not like money. they, whenever there is a whiff of money and mutual back scratching copy knowledge, as they say in french, then that can be very dangerous for candidates. and this begins, the issue does indeed seem to be a very, very serious scandal. the allegation,
12:27 am
of course, that there is been tax evasion by these, by, by mackenzie, and these are the consultancy firms. and then the 3rd allegation, which is that they've in kind, they've given help to the, to the chemical and campaign for free. so, i mean, you know, you've got 3 scandals in one. meanwhile, marine le pen has seen her fortunes improve recently. she wants out of nato and to remove frogs from the sphere of american influence. now, while her ties to russia were recently seen is cause for concern. that hasn't seemed to put off voters say, firstly of course, frances, you know, has a tradition of being relatively friendly to russia. and the french people are not objectively hostile. of course, there is a lot of emotion about the wall as there is everywhere. but it has not become a political football among between the candidates, it is in that sense, been absent from the camp short of a disaster, mac korn,
12:28 am
is expected to make it in to the 2nd round. the pens chances are high to but there is still a fierce battle let on going for that 2nd spot. eric the more from the hard right and valerie chris from the center right? still have hope. in fact, almost this entire campaign is seeing a shift in support towards more right wing policies. france has long been considered the past in of left wing politics to why has this happened for people of my generation, the socialist party has nothing to say or offer. we are in a turning point for the left in france. they have to be reborn in a new political force. that doesn't mean that left when politics is dead. in fact, so mac relish all from the hard black hat, a bump in the poles just recently. he is also seen as pro russian and vocally opposes nato millennial though it seems, represents
12:29 am
a dying breed wave of the candidates on the left barely registering in those surveys. on sunday, voters will cast their ballots with 2 candidates progressing to the next stage. it's then that the real race will begin. charlotte, even ski, r t. paris. why that does it for me this hour? i will be back in 30 minutes with more news and commentary from moscow on the war in ukraine through with a such a traditional ah, a tax on other countries. we have a responsibility for the whole we need to make rules for the rest. because without out there with
12:30 am
me a is a, is a much bigger issue. he's down billy peter, the number of see if the at the do what she of principal does, that is not that i do so on the a doing unless it is a c and that there is a b u of william dicky. i'm wasn't an ideal, a girl neglige sort of vision as you former the clichy boy. he still wouldn't be a e l. l. thank you. can see that when you, when you get your sewing you do is to do my video. we offer.
