10:18 pm

10:19 pm
the cold war situation. because of give them exceptional power within the major countries. so it is not only against russia, it is very much against the own population. within the nato countries to russia imposes an entry ben against a dozen high ranking british officials. citing a hostile stance from london list includes prime minister boards, johnson, his predecessor theresa may, and the foreign and defense secretaries. moscow says, london has engaged in an unbridled information and political campaign aimed at isolating russia and suffocating its economy. of u. k. has been a main advocate for international pressure on russia over the war ukraine. london has imposed numerous sanctions against the russian economy and officials and has campaigned for the you to give up russian gas imports. that is also providing thea with military aid, including anti tank and air defense systems. it's been revealed that some british

10:22 pm
civilians need food like survive after like in circles. and so they would take like food from the supermarkets, they would stop civilians from going out to get water and is not just the boots of most recent special forces that have been on the ground in ukraine. although not so much boots, but the polish shoes of the british prime minister bars johnson himself stepped out onto the streets of historic he f. as he strolled alongside. president zalinski last week becoming the most senior western leaders so far to step foot in the war zone. bringing with him not just woods of support, but a pledge of yet more military aid. it was a visit designed to send out a clear message to the well that the u. k. is there to help? well, one that ukrainian hoping that'll be exactly the case. his, the wife of the countries detained opposition leader given that johnson apparently has zalinski, is if she wants the british p. m to pressure the president, to swap the captured british mercenaries for her husband, victor at medford chak,

boris johnson, who recently visit at k. uh, they certainly aware of the situation surround in the u. k. nationals, he will response in an least trusts will tell you what that british were doing that well, even aside from the most res britton's clearly been doing plenty there already. 2 countries standing side by side in the fight against russia, but who's leading, who? alright now, amid the war in ukraine and the sanctions imposed against russia, the u. n is chief, says global food and energy supplies, as well as financial systems have been disrupted, and will inevitably lead to an increase in poverty and hunger in developing countries as well. beyond ukraine's borders. far out of the media's attention, the war has become a silent attack on the developing world. the crisis could plunge up to 1700000000 people, more than a 5th of the global population into poverty and hunger on a scale that has not been seen in decades. russia has traditionally been
10:25 pm
a substantial food exporter to many regions in the world, and is also a major supplier of fertilizers used in food production. ukraine and russia produced 30 percent of the world's wheat and barley, a 5th of the corn, and more than half of the sunflower oil. moscow has condemned the western sanctions as damaging global supply chains and some experts say that measures have the potential to cause famines in poorer nations. we spoke to people in kenya, one country facing a shortage of some products, amid rising living costs. now some said that they already can't afford 3 meals a day. eminem guy, jim, we, we are living in a difficult moment here in kenya. and every thing is shooting up in price, getting daily bread or even meals for a day. as a miracle, there is a shortage of foods, especially for people like us who depend on hand to mouth. to where russia has been
10:26 pm
highly boosting the economy of ordination and wheat from there is used in making animal feeds. may be that is why all this is happening, of course. so when emma wheat floor is not affordable, and especially for us who live on the outskirts of the nairobi area, we don't have permanent jobs. and yet we must provide for our own families at home . politics and war and other places like ukraine has played a major setback in our suffering that i should a good if it's true, not every one is capable of having 3 meals per day. and as you can see in my shop, i don't have much stock. even sunflower, oil and wheat flour are nowhere to be seen. things are getting worse on a daily basis. man, in my day, a man told it, affording 3 meals in a day. no, not yet. the little money i get can only sustain me for a day, then i look for another alternative, either visit a friend of mine, at least, to share a little. but failing that, i will sleep hungry. we heard from oxfam, regional humanitarian, at coordinator, francesco rig i'm wanting about
10:27 pm
a potential upcoming food crisis. there are cries all over the world. we should not forget that. there is a very difficult food security situation in west africa. there is a difficult situation in yemen. any now the parts in other parts of the world, it is indeed true that the situation in, in the own of africa, east africa more generally is quite difficult. i think that there are like some action that can be taken and adopted by the government in the region to make sure that the prototype intervention to address the younger crisis. and there is something that the international community can do as well. the region including like the effects of coal reed and the effects off the locust infestation. so those are the, the element that they, they, they were the prime cause for days for days, cries is that the recent crisis in, you could be now as
10:28 pm
a compounding effect or that does it for me this hour. i will be back in about 32 minutes with another full and perception is there with a with if anybody's been trapped in an elevator, 20 minutes can be pretty long time right and alone. trapped in an elevator for 20 minutes. not knowing what's going to happen,

10:30 pm
stopped and defeated. ah, i think we've lost more in the warranty. so you know, a comparison decline, resort to torture, and i think it gives them the illusion of mastery and dominance and control by torturing essentially we blind ourselves. but we could in fact create a democratic society which actually has consistently valuable and effective techniques to fight terror. the fact that we don't is more an expression of our own anxieties and fears.
