11:02 pm
on a massive scale with much of those funds consisting of payments for oil and gas brushes . top diplomat says moscow will not tolerate that, but it's what does this such a prostate simple thing is happening today. but critics of our actions, everyone who has been condemning us in recent days for some reason do not want to talk about it. we haven't robbed of our money more than $300000000000.00 taken install. and most of that some had been received for the supply of gas and oil. and according to your rules and gas problem was supposed to keep the money in its accounts in western banks. and when they decided to punish russia, they simply stole it. russia does not intend to tolerate western countries thievery and will not allow them to steal the money it earns for the export of oil and gas hungry. i have said 9, you countries have agreed to russia's request for gas payments to be made in roubles, even if those governments have not publicly declared their compliance. in contrast, poland and bulgaria have taken a strong stance against russia and moscow has halted gas supplies to them. our tv
11:03 pm
goes down of comments now on the growing tensions over gas between russia and the wes weaponized gas. no, not an unconventional a fixed end, but the one you might use to cook or keep the house warm. now, it's in the percentage of the road between russia, europe, and the u. s. the u says moscow is shaking down the block gas crumbs announcement of that. it is unilaterally stopping gas deliveries. to certain jo, member states is another provocation from the kremlin. but it comes as no surprise that the criminal use of fossil fuels to try to black. my last back in march, in response to the use aggressive sanctions, russia announced a key change in how the blog will have to start paying for gas in short, in rubles in detail. the customer now has to open 2 accounts in a rush and bank one in euro's the other in roubles. the payment comes into the 1st
11:04 pm
account, then the bank converts euros into roubles and transfer them into the 2nd multiple experts have said that for the e. u, the change is negligible, but it's now the us that is going out of its way to blow this out of proportion. we're working with other nations like korea, japan cutter and others to support or effort to help the europe and allies threatened by russia with gas blackmail and their energy needs and other ways. oh, well look who's talking? washington surely knows everything about weaponized energy resources. because the us has actually been doing it for years, like when to try to get europe hooked on americas much more expensive l and g, because it's supposedly freedom gas. the united states is again delivering a form of freedom to the european continent. and rather than in the form of young american soldiers, it's in the form of liquefied natural gas, a shift like that for europe would have been equal to shooting the kneecaps off its own economy. but for uncle sam,
11:05 pm
there's no place for sentiment when it comes to making the big bucks. same goes for the nude stream to gas pipeline pro, from russia to germany. when the u. s. stopped just short of sanctioning its own allies to derail the construction. today i have directed my administration to impose sanctions on nord stream to act and its corporate officers. these steps are another piece of our initial trench of sanctions in response to russia's actions in ukraine. the pipeline could've easily take the ridiculously high gas prices and helped europe with its energy crisis. but trying to tackle russia is surely much more fundamental on america's pyramid of needs. the actions we've taken to date have already had a devastating impact on the russian economy. and even if you are goes down with it . oh, so be it. for years the us has been turning oil and gas into a weapon of mass economic destruction and so have some of western allies, but all at their own expense. we've seen from new proposal, brussels, the a,
11:06 pm
the international energy lobby is putting forward a template plan to break the you away from dependency on on russian energy. some of the idea is quite sensible. others are pretty ludicrous, like people reducing the thermostat nor heating systems by one degree. but all of this is very much a theory very much. what be does well, which is basically come up with ideas and produce papers and create committees who are very, very long way from anything really happening. so i don't see any real changes very quickly. other than more division, politically, which makes you look weaker every day. the you have plans to reduce natural gas consumption in an effort to build up preserves and cut supplies from russia. one german think tank has claimed that would be possible only with significant restrictions on industrial production and power generation. if the storage tanks to
11:07 pm
be filled according to the plan specifications and at the same time deliveries from russia ought to be cut so severely. this will only be possible with significant restrictions for industry and power plants. the proposed plan is to squeeze the ease economy, while gases redirected into storage, with factories and to power plants to stop operations. we heard from richard warner, a governance and the sustainability expert at demo for university, and who he says such measures would negatively impact ordinary people if the european vessels do as american requesting, which is really what's happening here. because previously we've heard from the european governments of this is impossible, we need the russian energy. but if they're now on the u. s. pressure buckling and they are saying ok, we have to ban russian oil imports, maybe the end of the year. then that will be a serious, very significant negative impact on the economy on economic growth. in fact,
11:08 pm
on the standard of living. because the energy inputs are an integral part and necessary input for almost all types of economic activity in europe. and yes, ordinary people will feel this. it will be very painful. food prices will rise, energy prices, everything will go up. we are entering a period of accelerated stacks, lation, where the economy slows down, and contracts and inflation goes up. and ordinary people get squeezed too powerful explosions have been reported in the sky above the western russian city of belgrade, near the ukrainian border. now this footage purportedly shows the blasts on the night from sunday to monday. eye witnesses say that the explosions triggered car alarms and shook windows in the districts. there are reports that ukrainian military plane had been flying in the area and was shot at by
11:09 pm
a rough russian air defense system. the regional governor has said that no casualties have been claimed ukrainian nationalists have been hold up for weeks in a besieged factory and mario ball their last pocket of resistance in the city. meanwhile, the russian military has now st. a unilateral cease fire in an effort with the un and red cross to evacuate civilians from the sprawling industrial complex. now this is recent footage from the as a star fuel factory. russian lead forces have been transporting civilians to a nearby village where they are provided with food accommodation and medical care. those who then want to travel to areas controlled by cheer are being taken care of by representatives of the un and the red cross. some of the civilians who have managed to escape the fortified factory save it. they were forcefully held there by ukrainian military troops from the neo nazi as of battalion. if she wasn't sure if we tried to leave 2 or 3 times even by bus back when there was no shelling,
11:10 pm
but they always brought us back, they didn't let us leave. we were all outraged. how could they keep us there? if we are the ones who chose to shelter there, we were scared. so we just ran a south members, came to our bunker and said, yes, we opened the apartments, we went inside, they swore at us calling us our pro russian city. they said they found russian flags in almost every apartment, but that's only what they told us. to be honest, i didn't have a russian flag in my flat, but i didn't have a ukrainian one either. few of my relatives did, but some of the resolved fighters who came here very still, very aggressive towards us civilians are to correspondent with our does give reports from the factory and mario paul, and explains the initiative for evacuating civilians. mary, you bull has fallen silent. the quiet fields almost alien, but it holds a unilateral sees, far established by russia is now in its 3rd day broken only by ukrainian

nationalist snipers within the adult seal industrial zune. russian and allied forces have been ordered to hold fly for a 3rd day. there are no air strikes, new artillery barrage has even infantry must seek permission to return fire also that a brittle evacuation deal can succeed. the situation is very fragile right now. there are senior officials from the un here from the red cross as one as washer officials, all trying to negotiate and negotiating with the nationalists spill inside the as of steel. industrial complex because the situation is so fragile. journalists have been forbidden from going anywhere near there. that is one of the conditions that the nationalists have put forward to keep the press away nor to feel what is
11:12 pm
happening. so that is the, the talks that are ongoing between them and various officials closer to the as of steel, industrial complex. but as i say this, this is a hopeful sun with the see suarez now. i beat an effect for over 24 hours. the city hasn't been least quiet since the battle began. more than a 100 civilians held by ukrainian nationalists for 2 months have been able to leave the as of steel complex. many more still believed to be inside. but this quiet has provided us with an opportunity to visit areas recently liberated from nationalists . this is another armored personnel carrier that was captured by russian forces from as of nationalists, ukrainian nationalists. this imperfect working condition other than the tires, replaced those and off it goes. but this is an a very interesting machine, a btr,
11:13 pm
82 k, because the pumps here are from italy. the engine is mercedes from germany and all the thermal imaging and video cameras inside the electronics are all marks in english. now the interesting thing is how did these come into the possession of ukranian nationalists as of nationalist, which until recently, even many western countries considered a radical organization. yet nato instructors and nations quietly train them captured documents and pictures show, and supplied ukraine with high tech equipment that they knew would fall into the hands of ukrainian nationalists. nationalists, and mercenaries here at the edge of the vast as of steel industrial compound. we found the body of another ukrainian nationalist killed during the fighting. he had i. what's interesting about him, if you have a look at he say,
11:14 pm
it's think it's long, it's very dark, uncharacteristic of ukrainians. most likely, one of the many foreign mercenaries fighting on behalf with ukrainian nationalists here at what of course, be interesting to see a full list of just how many nationalists of parish, the foreigners. and how many still a lot of them said the vos, as of steel industrial compound. russia believes that hundreds of foreign fighters are we've, as of nationalists inside mary, you pulls industrial zones many, far right radicals from the americas and europe. white supremacists send war junkies for 2 months that have also been persists that reports that among them i active duty, nate who, instructors and even offices, who may well be according to room was part of the civilian evacuation. deal more at gas d of o t for a mary, you po, rushing foreign minister, sir, gala rob has said,
11:15 pm
cheer has taken every possible effort to hide information about foreign fighters taking part in the conflict for the ukrainian side. he would suit thoughts, this correctly was the union, the situation with the resistance that the is austell factory and mary you, paul, and the stubborn hysterical desire of zalinski and his western patrons to withdraw all of those people and send them to ukrainian territory is explained by the fact that many people are there who can confirm the presence of mercenaries, or active western military officers on the side of the ukrainian radicals. meanwhile, ukraine's peasants lensky in an interview with a greek television, has expressed praise for the ukrainian armed forces as of battalion. despite it, having embraced new nazi ideology, including using an emblem derived from hitler's vi, marked there is also the dissolved battalion, which does not consist of volunteers. but as part of the national guard of our state to day, they are part of the armed forces and all of them are an official army of our state
11:16 pm
. bury you, paul is protected by professional soldiers. it is protected not only by the use of battalion, whoever the volunteers are, we are grateful to them, but only professional soldiers can defend his av still and marry you paul. with such courage. ukraine has made a desperate attempts to rewrite history as it begins the mass dismantlement of monuments dedicated to soviet soldiers who have given their lives to liberate ukraine from nazi occupiers during world war 2. with more on that, archie is don quarter comments as war rages on and ukraine, a destructive frenzy against the countries anti fascist past has spread like a plague memorials to soviet soldiers who fought and died to for ukraine from the nazis are being desecrated in mass. oh yeah, oh oh oh,
11:17 pm
should we be at all surprised, after all russia said had launched its military operation because of the worrying number of people who still glorified naziism and ukraine. and since the operation began key of the attempt to whitewash world war, 2, history had been kicked into overdrive like when ukraine's government removed and profusely apologized for a picture of former japanese emperor hero. he toe that it posted in a video on twitter. our sincere apologies to japan for this mistake. we had no intention to offend the friendly people of japan hero. he toe was depicted alongside ad, off hitler and benito mussolini. since they were, let's not forget the leaders of the axis powers in world war 2. but just because tokyo, which now supplies key of with military equipment founded offensive ukraine, decided to rewrite that part of history. he has also decided to and its
11:18 pm
participation in a historical initiative of the commonwealth of independent states, which was intended to protect the memory of courage and sacrifice demonstrated by the soviet people during world war 2. and for some reason that something ukraine doesn't want to do, yes, you historical memory is being destroyed by the hands of ukrainians. but is the people who rule ukraine who are destroying it? the main country, the rules, ukraine, is the united states. the main goal is to pet russia and ukraine against each other to destroy historical memory, to inspire the younger generation and to believing that russia has always oppressed ukraine, that upon ventura was a great ukrainian hero. it is for this purpose that they want young people not to know the history of will were to. so they do not know that russians and ukrainians are brothers. a lot of ukrainians were heroes of that war. my father included. and now the west is trying to divide us, arguably the most absurd was ukrainian president vladimir zalinski is attempt to
11:19 pm
liken rushes, military operation in ukraine to the extermination of the jews at the hands of the nazis movies named arizola. we are in different countries and in completely different conditions. but the threat is the same for both us in you, the total destruction of the people state culture, and even the names ukraine, israel. on february 24th 1920. the national socialist workers, party of germany, was founded. the party that took millions of lives destroyed entire countries, tried to kill nations 102 years later on february 24th, a terminal order was issued to launch a full scale russian invasion of ukraine. needless to say, some israeli officials were not impressed and reacted with outrage. war is always a terrible thing. but every comparison between a regular war as difficult as it is, and the extermination of millions of jews and gas chambers in the framework of the final solution as a complete distortion of history. zelinski is government hasn't been alone in this
11:20 pm
alarming trend of re writing world war to history. though, for the past 6 years, russia's un proposal to combat the glorification of naziism around the world has been met with only 2 votes against the u. s. and ukraine. at the same time, washington says it's cancelling this year's annual arlington cemetery ceremony. that commemorates the meeting of u. s. and soviet troops. shortly before the nazis defeat and 1945. no doubt, a startling trend of historical revisionism is growing throughout the western world, one in which the soviets who liberated the concentration camps of eastern europe, are called oppressors and the ukrainian neo nazis who glorify a passed of anti semitic nazi collaborators are called heroes. was yahoo! michaud, now they are instilling in ukrainians that hitler considered ukrainians as arians equal to himself. but there was nothing like that he considered ukrainians subhuman step on mendera himself was arrested by the nazis because he advocated for
11:21 pm
ukraine's independence. hitler school and ukraine was enslavement, extermination, and the settlement of rich ukrainian lands by german colonists. sooner or later people will see the light. people understand that ukraine and ukrainians were just expendable for the goals of the west. serbia has recently been gripped by a wave of pro russian demonstrations. thousands of people have taken to the streets to express their support for russia, amid the conflict in ukraine with crowds of demonstrators waving russian and serbian flags and pictures of russian president vladimir putin. they shouted that the slogan, serbs and russians are brothers forever referring to the traditionally close ties between those 2 predominant slavic countries. the leader of the serbian pro russian movement, peoples patrol, says serbian support for russia has resonated throughout the world. that's made it a little bit. i thought i was the central leader of the raleigh and support of the
11:22 pm
russian people. not because they said that that initial rally, service and russians are brothers, and we do not necessarily need to be pro russian oriented. we provide direct support to the people. we consider ourselves as self organized. the escalation of problematic issues occurred after the migration crisis in 2015 after the outbreak of the war in syria. the government leadership did not do its job properly. we are very involved in all of the current events. many of our journalists and volunteers were in ukraine in 2014. we know very well how the war began. there. nobody sense, especially in the western media there from 2014 to 2021, 10 to 11000 people died by the hands of the ukrainian military. now when information campaign is being conducted against the russians, just as it was conducted against the serbs and the 1990 s. the reaction to the rally in support of russia, which we organized, was significant in the world in western europe and in our society. in particular, we will continue to support russia so that the russian people understand the we are

11:27 pm
u. s. government narratives. new site ment press and others that have voiced opinions that differ from biden's stances have been banned from using the payment service for 6 months. men's press, which recently ran articles on the war and ukraine is now calling for help in protecting their freedom of speech. meant press news has been banned from paypal for an specified reasons. help us fight back against this onslaught of censorship. pay pal says that the band will last for 180 days has bank accounts, or credit cards. already linked to the payment service cannot be removed or added to another account. we heard from admin press founder and director minot adler, who says that pressuring independent journalism has become the norm in today's america. well, there's no question that people are bending myself and ms. preston. other journalists like caleb month and it's a form of censorship, of dissenting journalists. and outlets, if you look at the kind of coverage that we produce that meant pressed for the past
11:28 pm
decade, we have been unapologetically, working as a watchdog journalism outlet. which is how journalism is supposed to operate according to our 1st amendment, to hold those in power account to expose the profiteers of the permanent worst day . and we've done this from the wars in iraq, afghanistan, libya, we're living right now in an intellectual. no fly zone, which is what we've named it, where online censorship of dissenting journalism has become the new norm. or is that does it for me this hour? i will be back in $31.00 and a half minutes. another phone for 6 minister with us. this is our t international ah ah, with

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 often very dramatic. a development only really i'm getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk ah, i can understand why russia would feel uncomfortable with nato coming closer, closer to his orders. but that's why i think this is an issue that could have been, should have been resolved at the negotiating table. but let's be honest, you frame was not given the kinds of weaponry. and it's still not being given the
11:30 pm
kinds of weaponry that pose a threat to moscow or russian territory. bad is simply a false claim. ah ah ah ah.
