3:01 am
with broadcasting from our studios in moscow, this is our to international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to to have you with us. now the battle from are you able, appears to have reached its final stage as increasingly more territory seems to be coming under the control of russian forces and their dumbass 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 parties. but our gas, you have reports amidst the ruins of mario, both the broken towers and apartment blocks. it is easy to spot the front lines. you won't see tanks and marching infantry,
3:02 am
but the flies give it away where the city burns the fighting rages. this is as close 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 local
3:03 am
bakery, that's a school over there. there's the bakery as every day local residents go there to collect water in it and is off nationalists forced them to carry food and 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 labor, directly related to military operations. but ukrainian as off nationalists are long past caring. they only care for their own that's 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 aren't able to identify them. there have been many a's off nationalists
3:04 am
and other fighters killed, but they always carry away the bodies. this is 100 percent. sure. all our guys know that the n j as all fighters and mercenaries is clear, they have adopted stalling tactics all over the city to delay the inevitable liberation of mario bull at all costs. perhaps hoping 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. a while the russian military and its allies engage in heavy fighting with the remnants of the ukrainian forces in marble near the as of seal factory and the cities port. our correspondence are among costs of the town of mon gosh,
3:05 am
about 15 kilometers outside of marble, where personnel from russia as a federal biomedical agency. i have been assisting local doctors there. 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, their loved ones in russia. and a lot of the time i managed to get a hold of their, their relatives. and this is just one of the messages and this woman contacting her daughter. and she's about to see her for the 1st time in months, a year, a with women, social with
3:06 am
the people, not with the doors with furniture. yeah. is a little my dear tanya, i'm alive and healthy. i will as a former red army soldier and current refugee under the surname gregorio office. i'm writing to you to tell you that everything is fine, little i'm planning to come to the capital of our motherland road in ask. then you see the weather is good. we hope the darkness we've lived through has finally ended . life goes on as when you were about 15 kilometers away from the city of maria, pull in town. oh, my gosh. this is where the offers the ambulances bring wounded civilian civilians who were hurt in, in variable russian doctors are working here this spend this sent as special a mission to help doctors here in the next people's republic. i'm gracious,
3:07 am
the 1st time i'm being sent to hotspot, it's difficult, just as for any normal person, instead of feelings of being 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 mirroring their parents behavior. so it's important to stay calm. hutto and we are still at the hospital here in mongolia where wound the civilians are brought from murray will also this is the only hospital in the area and local doctors and russian doctors are also treating local patient from various illnesses, including just so simple cost consultation services, community number civilians have problems this disease. we strive to provide medical care who's to everyone who asks for. we have enough medicines. here in the hospital we work very closely with local doctors,
3:08 am
as well as many doctors from denounced together with them. we examine patients and decide whether to evacuate them, is it in that's in, as i've heard that they don't, they have a shortage of, of food here and water. so we decided to bring well potatoes, onions, carrots, cabbage, some canned goods for them, as well as well. they're very, very thankful for that friend. we will continue bringing them food here for, for as long as they needed an e delegation has visited a mass grave in the ukrainian town of boucher, a near king of mid accusations that russian forces killed civilians in the area. now the european commissions of president ursula vander lime, expressed to sorrow for the dead and blamed, quote, put his army. the unthinkable has happened here. we have seen the face of forty's, army here in butcher. we saw our humanity being shattered,
3:09 am
and it is the whole world is morning with the people of which it was the e delegations of 1st visit to ukraine. since the war ruptured in february, russian troops had left boucher. i made an announcement by moscow that it was redirecting forces to the fight for the dawn valley where russia has recognized the republics that lou ganske and done yet as independent countries. within days of the russian military departure from boucher 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, sarah flanders, who says that no matter who is to blame for the killings only one narrative is allowed in the western media. the big difference is that this war and each of the levels of war propaganda hard to impose devastating sanctions
3:10 am
on russia that will impact all of europe. and so only one story is allowed, and the media is completely directed and 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 through cio, 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 our entire the different including bound hands than those that are appearing in for those who certainly appear very recently,
3:11 am
dead food and less than 24 hours. so there are many, many questions about what happened in boucher 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 the white house has, again demanded that india come out against russia, saying it's quote, disappointed with new delhi neutrality amid moscow's military operation in ukraine . u. s. officials have threatened india with significant and long term consequences . if it does not fallen line against the criminal, there are certainly areas where we have been disappointed by both china and india is decisions in the context of the invasion. washington had previously warned india against buying russian weapons. and while some countries have piled economic pressure on moscow, india has stood firm and continued in ports of russian oil. but the white house is
3:12 am
strongly opposed to that with spokesperson gen saki, saying it's not an india's best interest to maintain such close ties with russia. we don't believe it's an india's 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 in the of the worlds that 3rd largest oil in puerto 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 opting for cheaper imports from russia. political commentator a g data says it's a good deal for india, india with obviously she got a better deal it. and if the options are offering the best deal when it comes to the deal and certainly buy it, i think india is already classified on this issue as russian,
3:13 am
if that is the cheapest group that is available in used to be widely vendors on russian military equipment since many decades, even though there is a lot of diversification, and there is a point where it has to go site, because a dr. once a home or people are in the system for india with a bag or a x being engaged with both sides without falling into the trap of looking at this entire conflict. an american rush in binary. india's neighbor, pakistan is also a target of pressure from the u. s. and the u. s. western powers urge is i'm about
3:14 am
to condemn of russia's military operation in ukraine. pakistan's prime minister, iran 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 cheese 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 though and vetoed the move the advice tendered by the prime minister on or 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 is happy about this political turnaround
3:15 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 line to pro key of stance. teddy that i had indian ukraine is very unfortunate as homeless people have been good. millions been that if you didn't ha, it industry still pakistan's prime minister is refusing to budge on his support for moscow. why would we condemn russia? only 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 is 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 socrates left off to this
3:16 am
connivance 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 anything like that, but there is no denying the pro us sentiment among the pakistani opposition and military. we had historically excellent relations with the us. the good army we have to day is largely built and trained by the us. the best equipment we have is us equipment, say con ends up with the short end of the stick. you can bet islam of odd will be added to the list of washington's allies. and in terms of possible u. s. involvement, that's at best, a little suspicious. what's happening within pakistan is that is a fight going on between prime minister in bron han who has lost his majority, but yet not stiff bow and general. but you off the army chief and what washington,
3:17 am
these kind of in thing i and what it seems like. but generally what, what is moving more towards the us? why lean bron connie's, the sort of moving more towards china and sort of anti america. so washington is kind of pushing that kind of schism inside, focused on number one. the trauma is that washington, what everybody sees its own nationally and chris, and what is nato's interest? russia has warned foreign states to stop pumping lethal weaponry into ukraine as it's being used to commit war crimes, including my 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 ukraine informations to stop supply them with weapons, and to encourage keith to abandon unacceptable. methods of warfare. the u. s. and
3:18 am
u. k. were providing weapons to ukraine even before the beginning of the conflict. and many more western states have begun sending lethal aid to t of in the last 2 months. washington has even approved a bill to use it's lend lease act, a 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 premiere seeing the sending of lethal aid as counterproductive to ending the conflict in italy. the hash tag, not in my name as trending on twitter with italians and other europeans, urging their governments to stop sending weapons to ukraine. renee morgan karate i am very against ascending of whether it's no questions, do not increase fees and negotiation approach. i say there are poles that say that the majority of italians want a serious piece,
3:19 am
negotiation and not the shipment of our could united india. i'm 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 for them. oh no enough, 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 in other sectors. finally came via d, i to me and a shipment of weapons to me is not justified by sending weapons. we are sustaining the war and i am against actually get any thought in be other than the other. me, i see sending weapons as a betrayal because the italian government has agreements with russia to pull people to me. italy is behaving like traders. it is following an american line that i don't like a false democracy and 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. to nothing reconciling the of the alternative
3:20 am
party is again sending these weapons because they will risk rekindling and already very serious conflict for the civilian population available. 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 would open, which in many jobs are wrist and there is a risk of a food crisis. we stick with unit, let me say my us with that, don't get on them. frankly, we are dismayed about thinking of rearmament and when europe spends over 233000000000 euros on armament, but 4 times more than russia, so shot, it's unacceptable that what we have to think about instead is a foreign and defense policy that is unique to europe as this give to the armaments industry as an unacceptable madness ill with addition to the right that i mean, russian authorities that have echoed that view by those italian politicians saying the you sending more weapons and sanctioning moscow are acts of aggression. and russia has a right to defend itself. that's as the you issued
3:21 am
a 5th wave of measures this time targeting the russian army, producer kalashnikov, the defense ministry spokesperson, eager connection. cough as well as get him on the graph, the head of rushes, largest bank, spit, bank. you states have joined the u. s. in ending coal in ports, which some critics say is likely to push the continents already skyrocketing energy prices. even higher russian ships will no longer be allowed to access european ports and the export of aviation fuel software and sensitive equipment to moscow will be bad. the you will also stop buying timber, cement, and alcohol from russia with u. k. and the use of food industries are facing a supply crisis and sky high prices amid import shortages, including ad, britton's, iconic fish and chips shops. so with this experience in some georgia power, rising bridge, very expensive, there's more fuel to delivery, the se, so,
3:22 am
and then store in the fish as well. this is all the, all the living for these go, that's about 2 people spending power as well. we heard from a german human rights lawyer who thinks the e 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 are no measure to solve any problem. and these new sanctions as well, they will have little serious impact again on european citizens and on european states. i think it's a, it's a stupid idea. it's a stupid idea to have all sanctions to stop a stupid to stop economical ties. and if you look at the, is to referrals, lavion on the 19th and late nineties. now that had been sanctions against any leading all country. also, natal stays like the,
3:23 am
you know, and i think to implant and now symmetric measure and it's a measure which it really impacts the european citizens negative and the german government and and start to run after u. s. government in the escalation, for the sanction of the sanctions on french or presidential hopeful, marine the pen has rallied against the anti rush of sanctions that will actually hurt europe ahead of this month's election. the national rally leader is gaining fast in the polls on income, but the manual micron with le pen standing out for her less hostile stance towards russia are europe correspondent, charlotte davinsky has more the opinion polls may have already called the 1st part of this selection. a repeat of 2017, though is apparently no longer in the running on not giving up the fight and to the
3:24 am
food of people still yet to make up their mind. there is a lot to play for middle shall ends in lieu of quite a long way behind them. so the chances of ending in the 2nd round is, are relatively low. just 2 months ago, this election was due to be put on 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. i'm against war, but the french can't have immigrant every time from africa, from the south, from everywhere. it's impossible. it's too much for us. i pay 52 percent of my
3:25 am
income on taxes and social security. it's been spin on age, but no aid is going to meet us all. it's in tenable policy thinks in case it's a wealth white crisis. a price of a liter of petra is certainly going to impact every sake associated with transporting rule materials. that is, all wages must follow this upward trend or this going to be trouble. job ecology seek while emmanuel lack on 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 alerting and fighting for years. of course, marine la pen can win nicole's 5 years of leadership has seen on space to most jewish times. they have been protest ranging from the yellow, vast movement which started initially over taxes on feels to anger over his plans
3:26 am
to increase the retirement age. and in the latest blow to his hopes, the french senate has now launched an investigation. this is into his government's payments made to consultancy firms in 2021 that reached a record level of 1000000000 euros were still one american fan. mckinsey which has received substantial payments is said to have not paid corporation tax for a decade. i think they are damaging, because the french were talking about visceral feelings. the french do not like money. they, whenever there is a whiff of money and mutual back scratching, cookie nauseous, they say in french then that can be very dangerous for candidates. and this mackenzie issue does indeed seem to be a very, very serious scandal. the allegation of course,
3:27 am
that there is been tax evasion by these by, by mackenzie and these other consultancy firms. and then the 3rd allegation, which is that they've in kind, they've given the help to the, to the chemical campaign for free. so, i mean, you know, you've got 3 scandals in one. meanwhile, marine the pen has seen her fortunes improve recently. she wants out of nato and to remove france from the sphere of american influence. now, one, her ties to russia were recently seen is a cause for concern that hasn't seemed to put off voters. 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 become a political football among between the candidates. it is in that sense, been absent from the camp short of a disaster, mac korn,
3:28 am
is expected to make it in to the 2nd round. the pens chances are high too, 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 seen as shifting support towards more right wing policies. france has long been considered the past in of left wing politics. so 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, some commercial from the hard left hand, a bump in the polls just recently. he is also seen as pro russian and vocally opposes. nieto miller, sean, though it seems, represents a dying breed with other candidates on the left barely registering in those surveys
3:29 am
. on sunday, voters will cast their ballot with 2 candidates progressing to the next stage. it's then that the real race will begin. charlotte, even ski r t, paris and that does it from easter louis throughout the day as we have more news and commentary on the war and ukraine? this is our international service. oh, a ah
3:30 am
. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation, let it be an arms race is on offense. very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk oh no. when i was showing wrong, when oh please just don't hold any world yet to shape out. disdain becomes the african and engagement. it was the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look so common ground.
