9:00 am
when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah, political again. i consider the proposed storming of the industrial zone in practical. i order you to cancel it out of my purse and calls off the assault on the as of fall factory in mario paul warning, it would need to casualties among russian troops while the remaining ukrainian forces inside the fortified plans are expected to run out of supplies and surrender . that is russia's defense minister says the civilian areas of mario pullet been fully cleared. if flat co trips on residents can now stop going back to normal life, we heard from some of the locals. you've managed to flee the fine. think around the as of style factory. bruce does not have to do it. we walked out to get water. a sniper shot me in the leg. i didn't see it was,
9:01 am
but it wasn't an area controlled by the ukrainians. with the as of militants told us that anyone goes on to the russian control territory with michelle dad. i made over whelming leon's, he, russian coverage of the war in western media. have that to an italian journalist, defies the mainstream narrative and say the us is actually to blame for provoking the conflict. it's the united states that prompted russia to do that. it staged a number of provocations, including with nato expansion in the united states. figured out that it's losing cloud as a global hedgerow, so it's behavior is a kind of a reaction with will welcome to you. this is dorothy international with the latest. well, news headlines is good to have you with us. in front of our parents have cancelled a storming of the last stronghold of ukrainian forces inside the dumbass city of
9:02 am
mario pol, in order to avoid more casualties. the awesome style factory will now be blocked off by russian troops as they wait for the remaining radicals inside to run out of supplies and turn themselves in particularly blue from which was huge too. i consider the proposed storming of the industrial zone impractical. i order you to cancel it. this is a time when we must think we must always think, but even more. so in this case, about preserving the live and health of our soldiers and officers. there is no need to climb into these catacombs and crawl under ground through these industrial facilities block off this industrial area so that the fly doesn't fly through. once again, invite everyone who has not yet laid down their arms to do so. the russian side guarantees their lives. putting such an important center in the south as mary you pull under control is a success. congratulations. as of style or as of steel,
9:03 am
as it can be translated into english was the final and is, remains the final stronghold of all the ukrainian, you know, forces troops, nationalists that remain in the key port, city of mario. but it's been days since the russian forces under, well, the forces of the dynette can look on some people's republics. have been methodically and meticulously kind of clearing out this particular area. but the key thing to understand about what as a fellow, as a feel is, it's not just your regular factory. imagine a 9 story building, but going all the way under ground. so these are the catacombs, the to storm a, a while a strong hold like this would mean would mean casualties and quite likely, basically the amount of troops you'd need to just surround and besiege this plant, which is what the russian president has ordered to do. is probably roughly equal to the amount of men that russia would have lost if it was to go unto well, to go for an up front attack and for an up front storming. so this was a,
9:04 am
this was the decision that vladimir put made basically a very, a good old walden medieval. i could say tactic that has been, has proven effective all the way from the dock times besieged people. you cut them off from, you know, supply chains, and eventually they run out of food. they run out of water and they have no other choice but to come out. but russia has insisted that it will create and continue to create opportunities for them to lay down arms. and, you know, join almost 2000 of their brothers in arms who have already chosen to lay down arms and become prisoners of war. the defense minister surges shot ashore go. he has essentially laid out the situation. what it is like in mar, you pull. and basically what the russian army faced in the city mission, nurses with russian and in ask republic forces, have liberated murray of all the romanian nationals forces or sheltered in the as of salt land. as on the 11th of march, the number of the current in troops nationalists and foreign missionaries was
9:05 am
around 8100 people during the liberation more than 4000 were killed. 1478 captured the others more than a 2000 are blocked in as of style. these nationalists turned almost all the residential buildings into permanent fire and positions. in the lower stages, there were armored vehicles and artillery in the upper cypress and anti tank missiles. in the middle and in the basements, there were civilians, as human shields and retreating, ukrainian and nationalists forces were hiding behind civilians. as of now, the whole mario po, is now under russian and dentist. republic control nationalists and mercenaries in austin are blocked firmly from the 1st glance. the city of mario pal looks like a ghost town, essentially because almost all buildings have been well damaged in the course of war. because essentially we as, as we've been reporting from the city. and as we've been hearing from the locals who were evicted from the report, lance and whose apartments were turned into, you know, firing positions by nationalists who usually nachos today. tonight we walked out to
9:06 am
get water. a sniper shot me in the leg. i didn't see who it was, but it was an area controlled by the ukrainian. how can i help you? because i didn't. the as of militants told us that anyone goes on to the russian controlled territory. the shall dead. the soldiers kicked us out. we grabbed our passports and money, but when we came back to our apartments were sore belonging, see everything was stir. then as our soldiers have taken everything, and they did not let us out. they show at the legs of anyone who tried to get her breath while essentially there are concerns that there may be civilians hiding in the as of steel plant or in the catacombs as well according to the russian defense ministry. those are the relatives of the fighters who are, who remain there and again, according to the russian defense ministry, every opportunity will be provided for everyone willing to lay down arms and willing to come out safely. every opportunity will be provided for them. following the briefing at the kremlin presidential spokesman to meet you pascal stress that
9:07 am
rushes operation and on bass will push on despite the cancelled assault anerio paul, mutilated for those are the special military operation, continues. according to plan mario paul, which had turned into a concentration of ukrainian nationalist formations, has been liberated today. the minister of defense reported that it's now possible to start going back to a peaceful life, including the return of the civilian population. as for the, as if still factory, it is a separate facility inside which the remaining ukrainian nationalists are completely blocked off. a political analysts to me to bondage says russia has taken a humane approach to ending the hostilities in mariel. paul, as far as i understand the season not stormed, the other plan is due to the desire to spare the lives long. so i don't see if there are some there. would you? you know, in big doubt. but in general, i wouldn't call it a stop,
9:08 am
which i would call it just a more humane and more soft approach to the end of this battle. if the west door some could go from the well, i wouldn't read too much from one but the west will interpreted it's all the holes that can be said for sure. we're staying with mario pola. dozens of civilian bodies have been found within the vicinity of a public hospital in the city. russian investigators say they've started a probe on the suspicion that ukrainian forces could have committed war crimes. a warning, some of the following images are disturbing. the video was provided by russia's investigative committee, it shows the destruction of the mario pl hospital, which had allegedly been shown by ukrainian forces, according to russian and on yes, republic or 30, they say 26 bodies have been found elsewhere
9:09 am
in the going yes. republic, fragments of ukrainian miss sol, intercepted by a local defense system, have rained down on the city of shock. tools reported the killing at least one person. these are verified images, allegedly show the aftermath of the attack on the city where authority say a child was killed and for other people were wounded. the mis on is believed to have been a toaster. you widely used by the ukrainian military. oh, i met a storm of western media condemnation of russia. a prominent italian journalist has suggested an alternative view of the ongoing war flying in the face of the mainstream narrative, angelo to o z z, a z u. s. is actually to blame for provoking the conflicts. the journalist made his point on italian national television blew the memory, go to the but we must remember that this war, besides, every thing that we're talking about is
9:10 am
a war of the united states against europe. the u is the real object of this war. the united states is interested in severing ties between russian europe and also china, a contributor to top italian media outlets. j. o. c has made, has more than 40 years of experience in journalism. his track record includes being a founder of several magazines, with a focus on history, nausea he ran for men of the italian city of turin. we spoke with dorothy to get more of his insight on the conflict in ukraine and on bass. ah. and my mentor rhetoric of each other little technically it's russia that unleashed the war. but in my view, it's the united states that prompted russia to do that. it staged a number of provocations, including with nato expansion. the united states figured out that it's losing cloud as a global hagaman. so it's behavior is a kind of a reaction. it definitely doesn't want to put up with it's new role amid a shift in to paula centric world. in my view,
9:11 am
zalinski is now the main obstacle to achieving peace. it's obvious that he's ready to sacrifice his country in his people in order to stain power. he's also hindering a diplomatic solution. if we want peace talks to succeed, then the compliance with uminski agreements should be the starting point. but zaleski as opposed to that the sort of myth. i think that today we're seeing 2 wars being fought simultaneously. one is being waged with arms bombs and missiles on the battlefield, whereas the others unfolding in the media with newspapers, television, and the internet. and the latter one is no less serious. media outlets are being shut down and deploy to weaken rival power. zalinski himself basically silenced the opposition. so it's not correct to say that the war and defense of zalinski equals a war in defense of democracy. i have never before seen must media acting as indecently as they do now. i'm struggling for the truth seeking to my own opinion
9:12 am
without buying into the official version. great of if a my daughter was in crimea during the referendum, she worked, there is a photo journalist and sent me images showing people joy about returning to russia . that the referendum embodied a national unity was that it was considered liberation back then while covering the situation and the don bass, she managed to survive miracle asleep while her 30 year old colleague was killed in a mortar fire. she was very upset to see the violence that the authorities and key if used against the people of the don bass. it's your sanctions. never heard governments. in fact they heard the population and because of that they are moral. they are also inefficient. if their objective is to shift power in moscow. furthermore, the sanctions have already impacted european economies. the italian economy has already suffered and its going to get worse. only the united states who managed to get away with it. probably for now the you doesn't see that i'm surprised by how
9:13 am
short sighted our politicians are. it's been almost a week since the chill a, an american journalist who's been covering the conflict from inside ukraine has gone missing in the city. a ha of hawk of reporters and authors from around the world a faring for his life is voicing that concerns on social media. in solo lira is 54 years old and has been living in ukraine for the past few years. he was in tears when the conflict ruptured in february and then traveled to hawk off to cover the fighting bear and his interviews on streams, he repeatedly slammed the ukrainian government and armed forces for their actions. at the end of march, he posted a tweet saying he might disappear as did other critics of key of some of whom were later found dead. russia's foreign ministry spokeswoman has reacted to the story, pointing to controversial tweets posted by a ukranian nationalist following the reporters disappearance. one of the leaders of the as of neo nazi sir gay, karate kick, also known as bots. men took to twitter to hint that one of his nasty comrades in
9:14 am
arms might have been involved in the disappearance of consoler. the tweet had to be deleted. we're still talking about a u. s. sits in here, after all, but all the records are still online. and hey, were those very tweets posted in the nationalists, private accounts he mockingly claimed the journalist might have been adopted and killed by quite some guy with the co sign, chile, and other posts. he showed a photo of neo nazi 5 is again hinting they might be the ones behind the reporters disappearance and even applauding the prospects of the journalists being dead. the radical ukrainian command that didn't provide any evidence though. so this information has not been verified. we spoke with eva karen and bartlett, a journalist, now working in gone boss who had previously been in touch with gonzalez, lira. she says she said what the report had told her shortly before he disappeared . he messaged me, i'm explaining why he had been stressed out the day before saying is extremely tired, hadn't been sleeping. and that the he but he said,
9:15 am
the crazies are on the street, you can tell by looking at them. you don't want to go near them. he was also saying that people are staying in doors because they're afraid to go outside and if they do go outside, they're extremely paranoid about everyone around them. so he was definitely quite worried about his own safety. gonzalo is doing a lot of interviews, particularly on the duran channel, but also with other journalists and, and he made it clear that he was aware of the dangers that being in clark of posed to him in not the cities overrun with nazis. but he felt it was important to be there to witness how things played out. he had a massive following on social media, particularly on his telegram channel, which has nearly 90000 subscribers. um and it, every time he appeared on the duran and other programs, there is a wide audience ready to hear his views because again, one other notable thing is he being and kirk of was one of the sole voices, if not the sole voices in english language speaking critically about what was
9:16 am
happening under that zelinski regime and under the nazi rule, i don't think any normal ukrainian citizen can feel safe inside the country, but particularly not his family because well, his name is now well known and the secret services will be looking for them so, but i do want to emphasize norden, era ukrainian citizens can't feel safe within their country because of the wide spread rule of these nazi groups in ukraine. the u. s. cannot provide full control of the weapons it has sent to ukraine us, according to american government sources. oceans had recently approved an 800000000 dollar package of arms to key f with this summit with some u. s. allies also chipping in ortiz don quarter investigates. more military aid is on its way from the west to ukraine. this time a bunch of rusting fighter jets. they have received additional aircraft and the air aircraft parts to help them get more, more aircraft in the air with the wars focus now shifted almost entirely on to done
9:17 am
boss. and now the need is changed because now the wars changed. because now the russians have prioritized the dumbass area and that's a whole different level of fighting a whole different type of fighting. how that has any bearing on why even more military hardware should be dumped into ukraine is anyone's guess. but it's convincing enough for washington's ally london to dedicate even more heavy weapons to ukraine's command. this will become an artillery conflict. they need support with more artillery. that is what we will be giving them. this is beaca, in addition to many other forms of support, the seemingly never ending stream of gunpowder and steel continues to flow, despite the fact that many know that these weapons are impossible to keep track of . even now the west doesn't seem to be listening to the experts were already ringing the alarm bells with a substantial stockpile of weapons, few barriers, taxing arms, and millions of small arms and light weapons on the black market. ukraine is believed to have one of the largest arms trafficking markets in europe. and so the west continues to send shipment after shipment of weapons,
9:18 am
all to the tune of anti war slogans. a bit contradictory to say the least. it's extraordinarily dangerous that the u. s. is not able to track these arms that are going into ukraine. we have numerous examples in recent history, even of the disasters that can happen when the us pumps tons of weapons into a country. we saw in livia and been ghazi when the weapons that we sent to libya to overthrow gadhafi ended up in syria in the hands of al qaeda in isis. we saw this just recently in afghanistan. the u. s. essentially provided all the alms necessary for the taliban government because the us ran away and left all these weapons. so there's no accounting for these weapons. it's extraordinarily dangerous. and frankly, it's hard to believe that europe is stupid enough to allow this to happen in their back yard. they will be the victims when these arms wanted in the hands of people that they don't want to have. finland's parliament has begun to debate on whether
9:19 am
the country should join nato countries, permanent essays, the decision will be made in the near future. neighboring sweden is also considering joining the military block despite maintaining a close partnership with ne, tow fitment in sweden have traditionally stuck to non alignment. if finland's, if finance partners make a decision to join, this would fundamentally change the country's political course. at german economist told us, finland is now under western pressure to join the block. there has been much pressure from the nato and the us on finland to join the need to know otherwise, it's not, it doesn't make any sense. the land joining the nature of the americans need new allies for the economy to, to join the law. and they need more allies to join against russia, which is the new dominant force on the re, could get the new dominant force on your age and continent. i personally don't see
9:20 am
any threat to compete. payment has be neutral for the entire cold war era. female has been neutral in the very difficult era for russia when the l. c. and the yellow era, when many disruptions and many economic problems arose. why? now i don't see any interest in russia doing any harm to finland because you're strategically for russia. i've been told be interesting and it has nothing what may could what they could want to have or something. so i don't see any, any crash from the deer strategic point for finland from the standpoint of finish people not thinking selection. modi or india was british permanence. the borrower's johnson's office,
9:21 am
a said regarding his to day visit to india with russia expected to be at the top of the agenda. johnson's office and says, he does not want to pressure new daily over its close relations with moscow, but may still try to convince india to alter is policies. the british premier has already met some business leaders and visited factories, seeking new commercial agreements to boost cooperation with india on friday at one friday for restaurants. and he said to go to new delhi for his summit with render modi of correspondence. it explains that what is expected from the meeting. we are expecting that drumming still borders johnson, although he has said that he is not going to lecture prime minister, not in there will be on your grade address. but we are expecting graham in the store, voters johnson to explore opportunities to explore trade relationship vent india red robins to vote. and perhaps especially in due major sectors
9:22 am
which is defense and emerging because there is a certain viewpoint in the us and, and in the u. k, i major countries that india also needs to rally behind b democratic countries as against russia in the ongoing crisis where you're great. so we are expecting that that means that what is john still is going to not bless you guys, but he's going to explore opportunities read, he can push india in a different direction of a, from russia, with rich india actually enjoys a strategic partnership and cooperation. and has so far been a neutral player, has abstained from warping against russia in the united nations. we had also expecting from star borders. johnson, do us india,
9:23 am
you reduce if defendants, although i did not really dependent on russia, but it has just been a full corporation and strategic partnership with russia historically. and traditionally news columnist and ortho develop a tell believes india maintains independent relations with many countries and will not change its neutral stance. india has made a model of its own in the lowest b, it in the last 2 decades in the demographic. and even then can be, and i don't think anybody can meditate in any situation, especially given a has been under bmw the will the governments of foreign policy, india aligned it's in does the 3 different reform, mutual benefit, for example, i god commend. you know, this is trying to manipulate on, on what i can see, the content is there not someone who are not any bishop, from any of the own independent relationship with every single country based on
9:24 am
trust and cooperation and as a lot of extra office minister jason go who is also already season right. there will be taking decisions for our country on the business on what india believe needs for an executive. meanwhile, 5 minutes, the 2nd half of his praise, the developing relations between russia and india. oh, very, very old friend. and we called all relationships long ago, strategic partnership. then about 20 years ago, the indian france said why, why don't we call it? why don't you call it privilege strategic partnership? and sometime later, they said not enough. let's call it especially privilege that the g but this, this is, this is a unique description of any bilateral relations. i think of india and
9:25 am
the freshman and on defense we can provide anything india once. and the technology transfer in the context of defense corporation is absolutely unprecedented for any off in this site, but and you funds have power plays unfolding in the middle east. on the turkey launched a military operation against kurdish militants in northern iraq, quoting them. but even on the terrorist operation, however, there is concern over the applies of civilians caught in the crossfire long time kurdish ally washington has remained silent on the conflict of our team. rachel blevins report. cherokee has launched in your venza targeting kurdish rebels in northern iraq on her of these, this average is militants, is a terrorist group in a long time enemy. but while the conflict garnered nonstop coverage back in 2019,
9:26 am
the mainstream media has had a little to say about it this time around. the biggest difference, while the trump administration is no longer in power and the u. s. isn't withdrawing its troops from syria was on with our heroic commandos and member res, supported by attack, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles and armed unmanned aerial vehicles. arrived at the scene by land and by air and captured the determined targets. many terrors were neutralized at the stage at the point we have reached old plant targets have been captured visuals in the middle east, harrison weeks voicing concerns about the fact that the u. s. has been so focused on ukraine. it seems to have forgotten about the part of the world that had been its main focus for more than 2 decades. a rock is now expressing concerns over the impact turkeys latest defensive will have on the region. the office of the republics president observes, with alarm turkeys continued military operations in iraqi kurdistan, and consider them a violation of the country sovereignty and
9:27 am
a threat to its national security. whereas an enlightened campaign for off as of the promise of protecting the kurdish forces in the middle east, who are allies with the u. s. in its fighting is isis washington support seems to have evaporated just a few years later. of course, back in 2019 biden. was running against trump, who announced the u. s. ado, withdrawing troops from syria after turkey in our plan is very similar operation targeting kurdish forces. turkey will soon be moving forward with its long planned operation into northern syria. the united states armed forces will not support or be involved in the operation. and united states forces having defeated the isis territorial caliphate will no longer be in the immediate area. at the time, western media responded with wall, the wall coverage condemning the tr, the administration accusing them of abandoning us allies and claiming the move was to the benefit of the governments in syria and russia. so where is that outraged now, man of media talking heads and politicians were so quick to forget about the same
9:28 am
kurdish allies. they one's claim were essential to stability in the middle east. then washington's other partners might think twice about teaming up with the us in washington. rachel blevins, r. c. thanks for joining us here. when i say international web back at the top of the ceiling. ah ah
9:29 am
oh, is your media a reflection of reality in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? hi sir lation for community. are you going the right way or are you being that so direct. what is true? wharf is great. in the world corrupted, you need to descend, have join us in the depths or remain in the
9:30 am
shallows. 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, often 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 with you. mostly it's all about our duty under small wasn't recognized. she you but she moved to see i need to and i was here to was in douglas. what is proposed to gallagher over his insurance plus the global muscles? alicia menu me 0 is just for concern, but you did at the bill. she stepped away from crystal.
