the former soviet republic of moldova has banned the st. george ribbon a symbol of the soviet victory over nazi germany in world war 2. the decision has sparked a wave of protests in the eastern european country. oh testers, shouted the word, shame calling out the national authorities for attempting to erase part of the country's history. demonstrators sang soviet songs held up soviet flags and st. george ribbons with some expressing support for russia, which has deeply held traditional ties with moldova. meanwhile, poland plans to dismantle 60 monuments dedicated to soviet soldiers that after a memorial to the soviet red army was toppled during a live stream last month. all monuments that have any ties with the soviet union are subjected to be destroyed in accordance with poland. d communist ation law of the fight against communist relics has also swept across ukraine since 2014
12:10 am
hundreds of monuments dedicated to so the soldiers have been demolished there trying to cut any ties to a common legacy with russia. ukrainians have been renaming streets named after soviet commanders and politicians a little bit of context in history. more than 26000000 soviet citizens died in world war 2. nearly half of them soldiers, soviet army liberated the territory of 10 european countries from nazi occupation, freeing more than 100000000 people in those areas. and while some western countries are striving to diminish the soviet union's role in the allied victory in world war 2 adolf hitler's supporters are getting increasing support in ukraine. vogue magazines, list of histories most distinguished ukrainians now includes nazi collaborators upon bendara. long idolized by far right extremists in the country. i o
12:11 am
bendara river by ukrainian nationalists and despised by every one else, at least when they find out about his romans with adolf hitler. but there is legacy has long been toyed with on the far right fringes of ukraine society. but with the latest i'll been posed to support key of in whatever this nazi collaborates. hays being normalized in the mainstream to it was pandora who managed to bring the activities of the organisation of the ukrainian nationalists to a new level in the early 19 thirty's. turning it from an underground opening zation into a liberation movement known in every country where there was a diaspora all the years in exile. he was the leader of the organisation of the ukrainian nationalists, which was reckoned within europe and an outstanding theorist if a national movement and pandora publications and public organization spread the truth about ukraine. bandera headed the most radical iteration of
12:12 am
o u l. the organization of ukrainian nationalists there openly and officially fascist roots, maybe shamefully tucked away in media articles now, but back then bender and his followers proudly wore it on their sleeves along with anti semitism. the jews of the soviet union are the most loyal supporters of the bolshevik regime and the vanguard of musk of imperialism in the ukraine. jews often referred to by racial slurs within o u. n. weren't the only targets of been dares, fascist discrimination doctrine. russians, poles, gypsies were to be exterminated to, according to one of them dares closest allies and another hero of 21st century ukraine. it is necessary to hurry up with the liquidation of poles to their full extinction. villages with soley polish populations are to be burned down in villages of mixed nationalities. only poles are to be wiped out jews, and gypsies, or to face the same treatment,
12:13 am
full annihilation without remorse. it's vital to take care of doctors, pharmacists, chemists, nurses, and keep them under watch and field hospitals. when their work finishes, they must be murdered without announcement. hardly surprising adolph hitler chose bandera as his henchmen and chief in ukraine, whose organisation is estimated to be responsible for some $100000.00 deaths and been there is bloodless, knew no limits. the organization of the ukrainian finalists values the lives of its members very highly. we accept that our glorious idea requires not just a few, not hundreds, but millions to fall victim in order to be implemented modern day ukraine has been repeatedly, just to stop glorifying these people who could have easily added a few pages to the rule book of iso al qaeda, but president zaleski thinks it's a cool thing. there are indisputable heroes, steppin band era as a hero for certain ukrainians. and this is a normal and cool thing. he was one of the defenders of ukraine's freedom. and of
12:14 am
course there's plenty of ukrainians. horrified by, been there as monuments springing up all across the country. it's just hard to tell how many ukrainians and since any sacrilege of these nazi idols could cause people their lives. amid the war in ukraine and the sanctions imposed against russia, the u. s. 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. orders for 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. go, has condemned the western sanctions as damaging crucial global supply chains. russia has traditionally been a substantial food exporter to many regions in the world, and is also
12:15 am
a major supplier of fertilizers used in food production. ukraine and russia together produce about 30 percent of the world's wheat and barley, a 5th of the corn. and but more than half of the sunflower oil, we heard from oxfam, regional humanitarian coordinator, francesco, regular montana about a potential food crisis. the recent crisis in ukrainian now as a compounding effect, there are crises 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 and another part in other parts of the ward. it is indeed true that the situation in the, in the own of africa and east africa regenerate is quite difficult. i think there are like some action that can be taken and adopted by the government in
12:16 am
the, in the region to make sure that they prioritize intervention to address the younger crisis. and the re, something that the international community can do as well. the, 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 these. for these cries is injured protesters and police officers and cars set on fire. tensions are high in sweden as protesters continue to take to the streets at to decry and anti islamic group known for burning crohn's after. it was given permission by the authorities to stage demonstrations. ah, traders were injured during the latest clashes with police over the past several days. protests have taken place in a number of sweeter cities where the far right movement had planned its events. now
12:17 am
the group wants to ban islam with its leader recently saying that it was quote, time to burn the koran. now, despite the violence, swedish authorities have refused to withdraw the permission for the group to hold its demonstrations. let's take a look at how the latest events have unfolded so far. with starting of the migration immigration crisis in 2015. i think we were really flooded by me, migrants and we have got criminal criminal justice as right. the reason there and we see shootings and st and small speech when you city cities, which were peace,
12:18 am
poland earlier times. so sweden has changed a lot and yet it's not a really surprised that the people are not happy and they have one of these bands of these gangs that the cities, even with hand grenades. exploiting sometimes the something sweet and didn't know 10 years ago and the escalation to somehow something which yeah. cannot suppress anybody. meanwhile, sweden and a neighboring finland have raised concerns in russia as they consider applying for nato membership. masika says northern european stability would be jeopardized should both of those nordic countries joined the alliance. it's no secret that the territories of these states have long been claimed by nato, with large scale military exercises being held there. the motives of the alliance are clear, but it's unclear why our bull tick region neighbors, finland, and sweden want to turn into a new frontier of confrontation between the nato block and russia. negative consequences for peace and stability in northern europe are obvious. earlier.
12:19 am
moscow said that if a session by sweden and finland happens, russia will have to reinforce its presence in the baltic sea region by deploying nuclear weapons to its european ex, clave of colon and grad to quote, restore the balance of power. russia has repeatedly argued that nato expansion threatens its national security. something highlighted during talks before the conflict in ukraine began, but was ignored or dismissed by western powers. during the cold war, sweden and finland decided not to join political and military alliances. however, in the 1990s, those neutral states became part of nato's partnership for peace program, which allows them to cooperate militarily with the block without taking up full membership. author and blogger, thomas roper, says, nato actions compel russia to act. depends on these countries on the, on the pressure of the u. s. can make on the governments. and that nature has already some weeks ago announced that they would be able to take these countries internet within days if they just ask for it. well, or russia sees the natal,
12:20 am
let's not call it in any way, but anyway, some kind of a competitor, whatever, as a risk for their security. so if, especially sweden becomes, isn't, or fiddler becomes a part of natal, this will have a right reaction on the, on the rational side with maybe new troops new there bought a 2 hour for lunch or whatever. and also also, maybe of the russians will enforce their fleet the in, in the body. see when you, when sweet joins natal, it's nothing good for the stability of their budget bridge. absolutely not. russia has imposed an entry ban against a dozen high ranking british officials, citing a hostile stance from london. now the list includes prime minister both 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. u. k. has been a main advocate for international pressure on russia over the war and ukraine.
12:21 am
london has imposed numerous sanctions against the russian economy and officials and have campaigned for the you to give up russian gas imports. it also is providing care with military aid, including anti tank and air defense systems. it's also been revealed that even some british nationals have been directly involved in the conflict. since it's weapons, it's age, it's prime minister in person just last week. and now the times has revealed. it's very own troops when it comes to the war, the u. k. is clearly offering ukraine far more than just emotional support. so british special forces have their boots family on the ground in ukraine, despite none other than bursts. johnson himself, previously wanting mercenary members of the so called lads all me, that they could be breaking british law by going over to join the wall. i can understand why people feel as they do, but we have laws in our country about international conflicts and how they must be conducted. but it seems the words of the p. m. once enough to tear those brits

a didn't want to negotiate with steps that could help. and the war, like peacefully, it was like 1st time sitting reality. they looted from like supermarkets, were civilians need food like survive after like encirclement. so they would take great food from supermarkets, or they would stop civilians from going out to get water and is not just the boots of mercenaries and special forces that have been on the ground in ukraine. although not so much boots, but the polish shoes of the british prime minister, burst johnson himself stepped out on to the streets of historic he f. as he strode alongside, president zelinski last week, becoming the most senior western lead us so far to step foot in the wall zone, bringing with him not just words of support, but a pledge of yet more military aid. it was a visit designed to send out
12:24 am
a clear message to the well that the u. k. is there to help what one ukrainian hoping that will 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, was arrested by ukrainian security services. he played a key role in negotiations between ukraine, russia and the peoples republic of dynette can le ganske his wife claims the rest was completely against the law and was done to suppress dissenting voices in the country. then had prime minister tongue and the telemachus of either of their physician validation parliament day of your grand individual. i appeal to you of how in exchange in my husband, horse england, then, but keith authorities for political reasons and south accusations for citizens of your country. i had an as him and some pina. hello,

12:26 am
those troops on how to use them. serbian president alexander church is expected to request the british prime minister to officially comment on the arms deliveries be heard from serbian parliament member milos by george, who accuses nato member states of fighting international laws. lights still be. nature wants to provoke a conflict between sab bear in kosovo and drag serbia into a war with nato that prevented by the military neutrality of serbia. although they say otherwise. a few years ago they started sending weapons to kosovo in 2008. they recognized kosovo in defiance of security council resolution 1244. and then they all these states, according to the same resolution also does not have the right tab. it turned on forces. but nato is not interested in this sub. it has always been on the right side of history in the 1st and 2nd mode was along with the us brits in france and
12:27 am
russia. but they, albanians and not slobs, not orthodox nato simply chose them. according to these criteria is it's ally in the balcony. and they help them destroy yugoslavia tag kosovo, away from serbia. that those are for me, this hour and 33 minutes. i will be back with another full and fresh look. she knew this is our international, but with ah ah, ah
