4:10 am
a major supplier of fertilizers used in for the 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 exports have been critically obstructed by the war and western sanctions against russian banks, shipping companies, and airlines. there is a threat of a potential humanitarian crisis emerging in other regions that depend on the imports. we spoke to people in kenya, one country facing a shortage of some products, amid rising living costs. some say that they are already not able to afford 3 meals a day jamming him guy, jim we, we are living in a difficult moment here in kenya and everything 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 where russia has been highly boosting the economy of ordination and wheat from there is used in making
4:11 am
animal feeds may be. that is why all this is happening. then of course, so many of them up wheat floor as 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 oh my god, 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. they met in my day the metal 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. oh no, no. we heard from oxfam, regional humanitarian coordinator, francesco to go monty, about a potential food crisis. the recent crisis in ukrainian now as

the former soviet republic of mal dover has banned the st. george ribbon, a symbol of the soviet victory over nancy, germany in world war 2. the decision has sparked a wave of protest in the eastern european country. but the protesters 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 plies with mold over. meanwhile, poland plans to dismantle 60 monuments dedicated to soviet soldiers. that's 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 i subjected to be destroyed in accordance with poland de communist nation law. now they fight against communist relics has also swept across ukraine since 2014
4:14 am
hundreds of monuments dedicated to soviet 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 as well. for some context and history. more than 26000000 soviet citizens died in world war 2. nearly half of them soldiers, soviet army liberated the territory of 10 europe, ian countries from nazi occupation, freeing more than 100000000 people in those areas. a serbian member of parliament, milos banjo, says that the purpose of erasing the past is to turn people against russia. and yes, does the cham unusual snow? tanya, the goal is simply in logical rules to direct the peoples of east in europe and the usaa against russia. to do this, you need to show that the russians at bad and how can russia be shown as bad if it made such a colossal contribution to their liberation from the nazis? it's necessary to cut out this part of the story and tell everyone that the
4:15 am
russians occupies for many years. and neo nazi regime has been developing in ukraine. it is being imposed on all ukrainians. they simply do not want anything to do with russia. even a shed passed that they should be proud of. they took chris a phobia for the state ideology. people in ukraine have been under the propaganda of the media for a long time at school, and people simply cannot hair another point of view. because pro russia media abandon, ukraine can use like the slobbering. and while some western countries are striving to diminish the soviet union's role in the allied victory in world war 2, some supporters of adolf hitler are getting increasing support in ukraine. vogue magazines, list of histories most distinguished ukrainians now includes nazi collaborator, st. upon mendera, long idolized by far right extremists in the country. it's oh, wow. bendara rabid by ukrainian nationalists and despised by
4:16 am
every one else, at least when they find out about his romance 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 post to support key of in whatever this nazi collaborates. hayes 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 of the national movement. and pandora publications, and public organizations spread the truth about ukraine ban. durham headed the most radical iteration of o u n. the organization of ukrainian nationalists there openly and officially
4:17 am
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 silly 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, full annihilation without remorse. it's vital to take care of doctors, pharmacists,
4:18 am
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 bonder 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 analysts, valleys, the lives of its members very highly. but we accept that our glorious idea requires not just a few, not hundreds, but millions to full victim in order to be implemented modern day ukraine has been repeatedly edge to stop glorifying these people who could have recently added a few pages to the rule book of iso al qaeda, but president zalinski 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 course there's plenty of ukrainians. horrified by been there as monuments springing
4:19 am
up all across the country. it's just hard to tell how many ukrainians and since any sacrilege of these nazi idols could cost people their lives. injured protesters and to police officers and cars set on fire. tensions are high and sweden as protesters continued to take it to the streets, to decry an anti islam group known for burning currants after it was given permission by the authorities to stage demonstrations. mm hm. 3 demonstrators were injured during the latest clashes with police. over the past several days. protests have taken place in a number of swedish cities, where the far right movement had planned its events. the group wants to ban islam with its leader recently and saying that it was quote, time to burn the kron despite the violence. swedish authorities have refused to
4:20 am
withdraw the permission for the group to hold its demonstrations. let's now take a look at how the latest events have unfolded. mm ah, with starting of the migration immigration crisis in 2015, i think we were really flooded by, by me, migrants and we have got criminal criminal justice as right. the reason there. and we see shootings and st in small speeds when you city cities, which were peaceful in earlier times. so sweden has changed a lot and yet it's not really surprised that the people are not happy. they have one of these bands of these gangs. then the cities, even with hand grenades,
4:21 am
exploiting, sometimes the south in sweden didn't know 10 years ago and the escalation to some or something which yeah, can not suppress anyone. meanwhile, sweden and neighboring finland have raised concerns in russia as they consider applying for nato membership. moscow says northern european stability would be jeopardized should both of those nordic countries join 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, that the motives of the alliance are clear. but it's unclear why are baltic region neighbors, finland, and sweden want to turn into a new frontier of confrontation between the nato block and russia. the negative consequences for peace and stability in northern europe are obvious. moscow has said that if sweden and finland join nato, russia would have to reinforce its presence in the baltic. c region by deploying nuclear weapons to its european ex, clave of colon grad to quote,
4:22 am
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. author and blogger, thomas roper again, says nieto actions compel russia to react depends on these countries, on the, on the pressure of the u. s. can make on the governments then, not nature has already some weeks ago announced that they would be able to take these countries into not to within days if they just ask for it. well, russia sees the nato, let's not call it any day. but anyway, some kind of a competitor, whatever, as a risk for that security. so if especially sweden becomes a fiddle, it becomes a part of natal. this will have a right reaction on the, on the russian side with maybe new troops, new. they bought a 2 for linda or whatever. and also also, maybe of the russians will enforce the fleet in, in the baltic sea when you,
