1:03 pm
scanned according to some local experts. and this is yet to be confirmed. ukrainian nationalist forces apparently used an american and 142 high mars time. are some multiple rocket launcher once again. this hasn't been confirmed, but people on the scene experts who are working are suggesting that said this is what they had used also earlier in the day here in de anesco, a missile defense systems had been deployed over the city as a cruise missiles were flying over here as well, at the moment the shelling it's still continues in the city of jeanette's, from a nearby of dave car and best village, which is just about 12 to 15 kilometers away from where i'm standing. russia phase, the ukrainian military has attacked crimea, drilling rigs in the black sea try me as governor stays at least 3 people were wounded and 7 missing as a search and rescue operation continues, according to
1:04 pm
a local center to the platforms operated by a crimea state company located around 71 kilometers from the ukrainian city of desson. for me as leaders say more than $100.00 people were working on the rigs at the time of the attack would be evacuation if it's still under way. the guns republic, official, se ukrainian artillery as keeping up pits intensive shelling of the town a pass naya, despite the fact that most of the buildings that have already been heavily damaged or completely destroyed. however, some locals are still trying to survive inside the embattled town, as ortiz equals donna reports from the same. unexploded missiles hand craters from fresh shillings. this may be 200 people in all of the town of parson are left in this area in particular, around 6 behind me are obliterated homes as the ukrainian forces keep blowing up to pieces. livelihoods of people here. every single house here is wriggled with holes
1:05 pm
like a fine grain sieve in a place like this, which is routinely shelled by ukrainians on a daily basis. it's surprising to see, survive was still willing to call it the only home they have was a saturday, so they were shooting with self propelled guns. rockets were flying, look over there. i'm trying to clean this up. when it rains, it's impossible to be here. you have to please balls everywhere. we have no way to go. my husband does not want to leave this house if his parents, tucker, how have they treated us bad? we are separatist them. one of them came and said, i'm here to choose slaves for myself. the moment keep troops retreated, these people outlasted their use as a human shield for ukrainian soldiers. they were the ones who dug up the now overgrown french's right to mid people's little backyard gardens. this maze of trenches was one of the most of unguarded. not the most daven god position of the ukrainian forces in the town of papason, i say, in the town,
1:06 pm
because here you can clearly see that it was established amidst private sector. the rest of the town stretches. as far as the i can see, the only thing the handful of locals here are left with is to wait and hope wait until they're finally out of range of the soviet made artillery at the service of the ukrainian army. hope that western made bombs don't start dropping on them, like they already have on the civilians of the nets. russia has okay. saudi arabia as the top supply of crude oil to china with painting making the most of discount. it's flies from its neighbor to the north, where she's all exposed to china's sword, 55 percent from the previous year to a record level. in may, the latest figures show russia overtook saudi arabia, whose export volumes increase, but only by 9 percent. moving the middle east and country down to 2nd place, india has also been taking advantage of discounts on russian energy supplies with
1:07 pm
reported spike in russian coal purchases in recent weeks. well as discuss this further now with our guest, benjamin cha, professor at the paris school of technology and business. thank you for joining us on the program is good to see you. now, do you think western countries expected their sanctions to lead to such a boon? for russia is the energy exposed to china? well, as you said to china's crew oil imports from russia sort through 5 percent from a year earlier to a regular volume may displacing saudi arabia as top supplier. and separately, china's imports, all russian liquefied natural gas amounted to nearly 400000 tons. also like 56 percent more than may of 2021 to a countries like china and india are dramatically increasing their imports from russia are. and since demand is negatively related to crisis,
1:08 pm
so as lawyers or she's selling at a sufficiently low price to east or is cannot absorb all the energy products there were supposed to be exported to rule or india rito to longer term and a u. s. and some of its allies say they don't want to see moscow in beijing get any stronger. but isn't that exactly what was happening now? with the increased economic activity between the 2 countries. oh, absolutely. do the warring ukraine creases, inflation. this has been expressly true in europe as of last month. the inflation rate in the u was close to 10 percent. with prices rising foss this in a new fianna, which had inflation by about 20 percent. to more we go east to the problem becomes more pronounced in turkey, which has hit around 70 percent,
1:09 pm
the current sanctions against russia. and the disruption of supply. some ukraine create serious energy and crops shortage. and the expectations on sausage as well. and does we think historically, inflation in decades out at the europe relies on russia for nearly 40 percent off is natural gas and 25 percent office is by all means that it is not possible to remove your plants need of russian oil and gas in the near term, but we could have long term impact by substitution from from, from america. but it's not going to help much because of more expensive imports because it is a long way. and the amount of volume of export to be submitted cannot be met with those sent from russian european countries as it stands of still buying
1:10 pm
billions of dollars worth of energy from moscow. how long do you think it could take you up to move away from russian energy? and how difficult would you expect that to be for your economies? well, the euro b as in relying hastily so heavily in india energy products from russia. and to recently many european countries, you know, discussing about puberty to, to renewables, to substitute for brushing gas. but in fact, many of them are actually resorting to more polluting and is your product such as but in call call. the european commissioner for energy said that the european commission was negotiating with member states to have about 40 percent of energy
1:11 pm
demand cover by renewables to remove dependency on on russia energy. she also promoted a major boost for off show when and highlighted efforts to speed a permitting for renewable energy product products, improving energy efficiency buildings and invest in hydrogen the development. but this will be this transition to green. energy will be easier for some countries, but they could be hopefully, you know, that's a state in sure more than 2 paces still rely on more polluting, feel slightly like poland, which we knew was, have a very long way to go. so what do you think the priorities of western leaders lie when it comes to their economies? are they more focused on their own reforms, or are they trying to home russia? well, recently the german vice chancellor said to deal at the ukraine conflict strengthened
1:12 pm
a case for energy independence through renewables, and that is not only climate related issues, but a safety or security or related issue right now are such that the colonization is at the expense of a sky high energy prices or greater vulnerability that clearly cannot be sustainable and not cannot be easily supported by the citizens and but at those compromises unlikely to soft and d. d broader climate ambition set out by the european union. some will preach are and shrines in law. you wide legislation passed last year, for example, aims to cut greenhouse gas emission by 55 percent by 2030 benjamin char professor at the parish school of technology and business. thank you for your time. thank you for having me. now. meanwhile, the use top economy, germany is facing a gas crisis,
1:13 pm
is they've been seeking to cut supplies from russia. germany has even been warning as people to use less the all the commodity or else they might not be able to adequately heat their homes this winter. we must and we will do everything we can to store as much gas as possible in the summer and fall gas consumption must continue to fall. so more gas must be stored in storage, otherwise things will get really tight in winter. are taking tropi to rachel. marston takes us through the latest on germany's energy crisis. so much for germany's clean energy session sticking, it's good in by avoiding rushing gas currently. now also means tearing up your countries green energy program. berlin is backed itself into an energy crunch with the west's anti rushing sanctions. last week, rushes gas from announcing overall reduction of 40 percent in russian gas deliveries to europe via the north street pipeline. it's germany citing siemens failure to return, repaired gas lamps. the german company explained the canadian anti rushing
1:14 pm
sanctions prevented the return of the units from a factory in montreal for use in the pipeline. now you think the berlin would be happy to fulfill his promise. ukrainian president vladimir zalinski are reducing russian gas imports because that's effectively what this does. but that's not the case as berlin solution to cut down on its gas needs is to fire up the dirty whole plants. again, it's that total loss with the country's green energy policy. that means to be honest, more coal fired power plants for a transitional period. that's bitter, but it's almost necessary in this situation to reduce gas consumption. germany industry association support setting climate rules aside now in favor of ensuring an energy supply. no kidding need. energy, right. the move is all more surprising, given berlin's policy of phasing out. cool by 2030, which a carney minister spokesman's steph. and gabrielle house says, is still on track. maybe not for long. france seems to me in
1:15 pm
a bit better shape. paris managed to convince the european union to classify nuclear energy as green energy last february paving the way for french president, emmanuel. and i called to announce that nuclear energy is for us as future. and that there would be a french nuclear renaissance. this after previously announcing the closure of friendship. we are energy reactors under the pretext, and they weren't brain enough. lynn still refuses to see nuclear energy as clean all started to rush gas, but it's backed itself into a corner by denouncing nuclear power. so long green energy has been on the use mind for very long time. and germany was one of the strongest proponents for the switch to renewable energy, to the detriment of natural gas speed up the necessary green transition. we have to face out pollutants gas. we want to create thousands of jobs for door to door. we must massively develop renewable energy in order to abandon the use of fossil
1:16 pm
fuels as quickly as possible. this is exactly what we have undertaken to do together, we're going on. but today we're taking our ambition yet to another level, to make sure that we become independent of russian fossil fuels as quickly as possible to accelerate the phasing out of fossil fuel. and most importantly, to kick start investments on a new scale. wow, i mean that about base with so fast i will talk with last, just listening to it. jury's best laid plans are on our raveling is off the can you crane drive on and sticking it looks a lot more like sticking at your local tree. hardy says, ah, columbia has a liked his 1st have a left is to president gustavo petro, who has promised to transform the south american country, raising questions about whether washington can maintain his grip on his traditional ally arms, he contributed. fiorella is about take the closer look. so this is a historic election for columbia, for the 1st time ever,
1:17 pm
columbia has the chance at a fair election. they exerted their right to elect a popular candidate. columbia has notoriously had fraudulent elections and so this was a historic when not just for the left, but for the entire country of columbia that has been trying to get rid of this norco regime for decades. for the longest time. columbia has endured civil conflicts from the military police on civilians and from us backed governments. and so this when represents an end to that, a movement towards peace, a chance to get rid of the old system and be able to usher in a new system that will allow folemi to be a true republic and eventually at democracy. and so this also signifies an end to the huge us control of columbia. let's remember that colombia is the only natal partner in latin america for the longest time. the united states has
1:18 pm
exerted control via military bases and the framing of military collette colombians in the military. and so this marks a shift away from that towards a more sovereign state of colombia, and also signifies an attempt to have equal equal relationships with their latin american partners, including countries that have been vilified by the west like venezuela. and that, of course, makes it more difficult for the united states to exert any sort of control or wage any sort of war on the country of venezuela and allows columbia to attempt to have more normal, equitable relationships with the rest of south america. and so that, that is one of the main things that we got out of this election and as far. d as what is the sentiment out there in the streets of columbia,
1:19 pm
there was so much excitement, so much joy. it was very possible people were celebrating well into the night while into the evening, just drinking singing, and really crying tears of joy. because again, this is the 1st time columbia has seen any sort of semblance to any fair democratic system. and they were able to elect a president that is progressive. this is not about getting bread of capitalism. this isn't about left or right as much as it's about getting rid of the western control, getting rid of the narco regime from the yvonne duka government and from the governments before that the 40 beast government. and now columbia has a chance to have a clean slate and start over. and this is an ushering in of a peaceful moment and also shows a solidarity between much of latin america. you have president, am low right away,
1:20 pm
coming in from mexico, congratulating several pe, theral and friends here, marquez and columbia as a whole on their victory. he has been strongly supporting a more you at a more south american and central american coalition. there was also the ex president of olivia eval morales. there was also the current president of olivia, the current president of cuba, of she lay a per room on dude us and of been as well. of course, all standing together with columbia, in spite of any sort of differences they may have had. i express my most fraternal, congratulations to gustavo petro on his election as president of columbia in a historic popular victory. we reiterate willingness to advance the development of bilateral relations for the well being of our peoples. we wish the best for the families of the brotherly country who have trusted entrust in their proposals in programs of life with peace, welfare, and rights. as part of our caribbean america,
1:21 pm
let's continue strengthening the reality our people expect and deserve. your victory validates democracy and ensures a path towards an integrated latin america in this time when we demand maximum solidarity among brotherly peoples. it's a joy for latin america. we will work together for the unity of our continent and the challenges of a rapidly changing world. this signifies that the latin american countries, primarily central and south america of course have come together to usher in an era of sovereignty. getting rid of the spanish crown wasn't enough. now you have an attempt to get rid of neo colonialism to get rid of this american or u. s. american. hold on the continent. and so you're going to see an intensified relationship when it comes to economics between these latin american countries, as well as more open relationships with china and russia. belgium work is march
1:22 pm
3 bronsels on monday and a massive rally demanding government action to tackle shop the rising living costs . the national strike was caused by the 3 main unions to push the highest salaries as story inflation has eroded purchasing power, and he say 70000 people attend to the demonstration. the strikes effected bronsels as may nat pools and other transport hubs throughout the country. bringing public travel from those locations to an air standstill. inflation has been estimated 9 percent this month off to sanctions against russia disrupted supply chains all over the continent, making regular people pay exorbitant prices for the choices of daddy. as i came here to defend purchasing power of the citizens because demonstrating is the only way to make change. we cannot cope anymore you and with to salary says we have a medical teacher. both of us are working and we can not get our head above water. we must increase our purchasing power. whether you love your life is becoming more
1:23 pm
and more difficult. casually hidden fuel, if will lower the taxes to 6 percent on what tricity and gas ruben make the population happier. the nation won't suffer. when we walla washington precious the you to ditch energy supplies from russia. it's deepening the crisis by remaining steadfast on its sanctions against iran, missing out on the potential for imposed from the country to re stabilize oil prices. as aussies, donald corda reports calling all oil and gas producers. it's time to flood the markets, at least that's what washington's hoping for. he's asking upon our domestic and international producers to produce more. that makes sense. joe biden has long been trying to rip the west away from one of its biggest energy suppliers, russia. today i'm announcing united states is targeting the main order of rush economy were banning all imports of russian oil and gas. new g sir will be no longer a nor stream to we will bring it into his to imagine if in fact europe didn't have
1:24 pm
to count on russian oil. if they were energy independence, $400000000000.00 of you sanction related losses, record breaking runaway inflation in the u. s. itself and washington's taking all this even further. it's recently slapped sanctions against a number of chinese and m roddy companies doing business with a ran one of a few countries that might be able to counteract the rapidly rising global price of oil. but washington seems more interested in its maximum pressure campaign against to run so oil prices saw a sudden sharp rise after that decision is just the latest episode and biden's series of sanctions that leave world wide pain and suffering in their wake. for those who had rather laugh than cry means comparing biden's. tragic tumble from his bicycle to the collapse of the economy. offer some sort of comic relief. others though, just want the price of oil to go down. asian boys hoping for
1:25 pm
a quick return of iranian supply to bring oil prices low amidst rising geopolitical tensions. i think that the united states responded to soviet, contrary, as they saw what happened, that was be happening over the ukraine. because all the thought that had been given is that they could use this color maxwell better and using lawns. sanchez, said she, these a without realizing that this is old, already at the backlash on the economy, on their likelihood that he was likelihood. and on inflation and to come as no surprise that all these consequences of the west generosity towards ukraine have begun to change people's minds about the conflict. according to a poll, published by the european council on foreign relations, 35 percent of europeans are war weary and want to see a peace treaty signed with russia. only 22 percent want to see the war continue. that much is clear when you talk to the people on the streets of italy. for example,
1:26 pm
i mention that gasoline has an absurd price with $50.00 euros of gasoline. you can't fill the tank, james, and i don't go out and i don't take the car and i go with the public transport. it is the only way for that is a gay with a subsidy that will be removed at the end of july. gasoline price will reach to euros and $0.50. there is no solution. we are in a catastrophe. often with empress of holla, titian's have not always been up to the task. we hope there will be a more substantial intervention vivian and has become a difficult situation. i don't drive the car anymore. i write a vesta. the european union's helmsman, no doubt, see the fatigues riding on the wall with the calls of its officials for key of to come to the negotiating table, getting louder and louder. french president emanuel mac, ron said kiev will eventually have to negotiate even suggesting that ukraine might have to give up some of its territory, a big no, no for ukrainian president, fly tamir zalinski bascom, monique continental. but we want to build peace,
1:27 pm
which means that at some point, we all want to cease far and discussion to start again. the quinn in prison will have to negotiate with russia and we, europeans will be around the table, notably to bring security guarantees that it is relevant to our continent. that is the reality of things. it is absolutely necessary to speak, to put in and i will continue to do so as the french president will also, at any rate, washington's insistence on putting politics ahead of common sense energy decisions might just see western economies take a harder tumble than biden off his bike well, some european countries are getting weary of the ukraine conflict and pushing for peace talks the case new army chief as warren, he's preparing a force capable of beating russia. there is now a burning imperative to forge an army capable of fighting alongside our allies in defeating russia in battle. we are the generation that must prepare the army to
1:28 pm
fight in europe once again. the statements from the army general follow last week supplies visit by u. k. prime minister parish johnson tick, he is the chief of name. i was also echoed the u. k. sentiment that the west must prepare for a long term war in ukraine. i'm afraid we need to steal ourselves for a long war time, as the vital factor. everything will depend on whether ukraine can strengthen its ability to defend it soil, faster than russia can renew its capacity to attack. we must prepare for the fact that it could take years. we must not lit up in supporting ukraine even if the costs are high, not only for military support, but also because of rising energy and food prices. it's time to learn the lessons. nato must intervene. let's officially acknowledge this and order the russians to cease fire. the alliance must go beyond the framework or cease its activities. meanwhile, us president joe biden has announced the countries 12 package of weaponry for
1:29 pm
ukraine is the largest single trench so far amounting to a $1000000000.00 moscow's farm. and is to say the u. s. is spending so much on the war effort because it wants to destroy russia. do they are trying to achieve what they have already announced a long time ago that russia should know its place? russia has no right to its own voice in international affairs. russia must abide by the rules invented by the united states. that's all and i think it's perfectly clear that they won't succeed. there. ain douglas, a communist party, organized in britain, has announced the west's attempts to escalate the conflict is a clear and present danger for all sides. anybody you get involved in, he's involved in diplomacy, anybody using for you for a policy development should know how to actually converse with 2 other leaders. you know, we all know in a situation where there is no race to the west from what's going on
1:30 pm
here. and s device in situation potentially will, mike, it was not just for the people, if you cry, it will potentially escalate and other countries in the war. they seem to have forgotten maps that, that's actually, you know, and if i how nuclear arms, rice, which is predicated on the basis that my 1st schemes we now actually have western leaders. he walked countenance single possible. it's a 1st use of nuclear weapons. any tool escalating this war, i think is extremely dangerous. i think it indicates really just how i'm fit for face, or by 1st junction at least trust all, i don't have a real proper understanding of international politics. i don't have a proper understanding of how to actually deal with people when you thanks for keeping his company here in our scenes. national work back in 30 minutes with well i.
