5:05 pm
blaze in russian is a thermal barrick rock, his artillery system. each impact creates an enormous pressure blast wave that new trenches can protect against. and these are being used in greater and greater numbers to decimate ukrainian lines and morale here in the vicinity of the town of solider, the defensive line, east, bending russian forces along with allied units have been able to push enemy troops out of several settlements and strongholds within the past week, the bodies of ukrainian soldiers and nationalists fighters live had the countryside that positions overrun were now as a forward position near the village of step of come. one of the conditions ah, with which we were permitted here is that we can't tie this place to any specific

5:07 pm
at $1.00 and $2.00 tank mon this another not over there therein rose and this entire field is packed with them. and this is relatively dangerous, that cow is heavy enough to set off an anti tag wide, and some of them are so close together that there could be a chain reaction. but cows are one of the casualties here regularly. the troops here say they hear the bus when these, these cows that have been abandoned, explode minds designed that tab pot tags, leave little of livestock clearing these alone. the minds plug already will take decades, but as the front lines shift, many, many more minds will be planted in fields, forests, and along new defensive lines. ukraine, off to rule, still has millions left,
5:08 pm
or i'd gas div, or t for le didn't yet people's republic. russia and ukraine have separately into a deal on a stablish ing a corridor for ukrainian grain exports to leave black seaports. the agreement was broken on friday by turkish. and you and mediators in this than bowl with the signing being seen as a critical step in averting a world food crisis. 3 ports in the black sea will be unblocked under the agreement . ukraine will not d minus ports us repeatedly requested my moscow to ensure a safe passage of ships. but instead we'll escort the vessels to turkish waters where they'll then go on to other international destinations who are waiting for them. the agreement will also see russia turk, in ukraine, operate a coordination center in place. should any incident occurred during the shipment? process? cargo ships were all to be inspected for weapons as they enter and exit the black
5:09 pm
sea. something the russian defense minister stressed is essential moses tis the movie, so is important for us to inspect ships for the presence or absence of weapons and military equipment. the inspections will be carried out on ships entering and exiting the black sea. well, the un expects full scale movement of grain ships to begin with in a fortnight, according to its estimates, the deal will allow the monthly export of up to 5000000 tons of grain from ukraine . un secretary general, antonio gutierrez, heal the development. today, there is a beacon on the black sea beacon of hope, a beacon of possibility. the question has not been what is good for one side or the other. the focus has been or not methods most for the people of all worlds. in a separate memorandum signed on the day, moscow and the un agreed to ensure that russian, i grew up cultural products and fertilizers will reach world markets without any
5:10 pm
restrictions by washington. and the alleged moscow deliberately block ukrainian porch to provoke food crisis by using grain as a weapon. russia strenuously then nice about saying ukraine's placing of mind in port waters made transportation impossible. the country's foreign minister routed up the memorandum ny, prove such western allocations just aren't factual and threatening. it's gratifying that washington and brussels have stopped obstructing the achievement of today's agreements. the signing of the memorandum between russia and the un has once again underlined the absolutely artificial nature of the west attempt to put the blame for problems with grain supplies to the world markets on russia. and i also spoke to the former president of the world farming organizations of african c with the younger he says that he hopes the deal could make western countries reevaluate their rushes perceived weapon is ation offered. i have personally that the russia being blamed for you, weapon id, food and all of these. so it is quite
5:11 pm
a relief. do you see that there is an active movement to show that it is not about the food this do, you can agree a lot of unnecessary animosities and it can embrace the image that has been created around the way. and i am not surprised that russia in to think it is due because for a year from southern africa, we never understood it to be about the weapon of food globally. africa needs to do more to save itself as most problems of the continents own making. that's the view of the trade director of the confidence u. n. economic commission. there's been some pushback to that. he says the food crisis could have been averted. let's have a look our food market. so experience in a shock that is coming from outside the continent,
5:12 pm
but why we're experience in this shock is because we have very low inter african trades in the group culture and grew foods. if we had done better and unloved. the full potential of the, grew cultural sector who didn't be experience in what were experience in today. yeah, the come in seen the shoes, the controversial on the continent itself. just some other figures here. the united nations estimates an extra $60000000.00 people will experience hunger. this year compared to last, and while the west puts the blame firmly on russia's shoulders because it's offensive and you create 3 years of you and record show a growing troubling trend when it comes to food in africa. activists point out that with immediate aid, the content and could face a large scale, she monetary and disaster like you're in humanitarian activist and research, your doctor, your cooper, joseph, believe the u. n. singling i top african countries for their citizens being hungry is wrong and nothing you one of the developmental principles so prospect
5:13 pm
copy can countries as prior to sufficient see, and so this blame in african countries is no model is part of the potter dive. and part of the development part of that and we believe as africans, if we develop or we have to develop, we must actually look inwards and be able to come to ports that will be necessary for this treatment. population model population in africa is grow in explanation. grades, so no doubt this functions and the war, the functions of plaintiff parts. they are in global food and energy prizes. definitely. the continent of africa relies for almost 40 percent on grange. we and other grants from russia and your credit on a related theme. russia's top diplomat is about to embark on
5:14 pm
a 5 day tour of africa in which he'll visit egypt. ethiopia, uganda. the republic of the congo international and regional issues are on the agenda as well as increased cooperation circle of ralph. we'll meet the egyptian president on sunday to kick off the trip. rushes, actions in figure are jeopardizing us interests and ought to be counters most the view of lieutenant general michael e langley, who, if confirmed by the senate, will oversee america's military presence on the continent. i'm surprised of what our competitors are trying to do. there coercive tactics have coming in and encroaching on the continent of africa for minerals or rare earth minerals such as cobalt. well, american senator is express fears that russia could push the us out of africa's mining sector, especially though the cobalt extraction, the rare earth mineral is widely used in the production of batteries and mobile phones. they also claim that regime change in some african nations and the alleged
5:15 pm
involvement of russian mercenaries in the further expanded moscow's influence. finally, the lawmakers accuse rush of convincing african leaders to take a stand against western sanctions. something moscow denies and for calling such allegations, condescending against those countries. because night we have had good relations with africa and soviet times for many years now we have been restoring our presence and the africans are reciprocating. so we never taught them anything. we never force them to do anything. we always help them to resolve their tasks and to lead their countries in the way they want it. and we always had mutual visitors with the spider or perhaps because of the huge number of sanction slept on. moscow rushes relations with african countries have been strengthening. the russian foreign ministry said moscow will continue exporting food fertilizers on energy to african countries. earlier this week, the russian state nuclear corporation started building egypt 1st moved to power
5:16 pm
plants. while south african journalist, new dba, madiba is of the view that's african leaders are finally realizing that washington has been taken advantage of the continent for years. i think the width and especially the united states of america such a lot of times you might over bully towards back and people in towards that's confronted. if you got to do history, the united states of america and military operation this year, i have always encroached on the african people have always been involved in regime change. the still advocate for the killing of african liter. it's, you know, so efficacy never went to the with asking for help. the children couldn't help themselves, you know. and so they may have been africans that begin to wake up as can be at the beginning to realize that the presence of america and africa is one of one of the ones that the african. but beginning to wake up to do that, actually we need the help of rush. so we need to come to africa, you know, so that we can have a mutual real relationship between 2 parties. kind of us are similar. so, you know,
5:17 pm
they've never come to, to people who have never, when did to, to, to, to people always been there to people to, to, to create some form of corporation between the african people and the chinese. or that's going people and the russian people, you know, so i don't think that it will create much of a book between both russia and china. so i really think that both can quick for the betterment of africa. i'm talking of resources while showing concern about its interest being undermined. overseas washington is also becoming increasingly wary and by china's growing influence not far from us borders and it's all about lithium mining labeled. then you gold rush, picking up the story for our teeth. go up. seems like the united states attraction . the south america is not so much about the natural beauty above ground, but rather what's buried beneath it. when being hosted by aspen security for i'm the commander of america south command made the following remarks. this region is
5:18 pm
so rich and our competitors and adversaries also know how rich and the resources that this region is. 60 percent of the world's lithium is in the region about controlling those resources. you can't let those goodies across the border slip away. evil morale as the former president of bolivia says he was ousted by washington because they did not approve of his development plan. but the country's lithium resources in both in the cool, wasn't unmet against our economic modo, but also against lithium. because we have started to industry our life with our own money, with our international reserves, and had a nice plan, which is now there like the empire cannot accept that we can also bring added value to our nature resources. lithium. you can be sure that foreign investors would like to make sure they have access to that live and they have a foot in the door, especially those who sell car batteries like alon mosse. when he was confronted
5:19 pm
about his role in the who he said we can to whoever we want, the venezuela president was when enduro says that the attempts to our camp and the pressure placed on him has a lot to do with these countries. resources. direct reason is seizing the oil of venezuela because we have the largest oil reserves certified. we certified what will be the largest reserves of gold in the world. we have the 4th record of the world's largest gas and we have large reserves of colton. diamonds, aluminium, iron, we have drinking water reserves throughout the national territory. we are an energy and natural resources, power house, former national security adviser, john bolton, isn't afraid to brag about his previous endeavors. either. one doesn't have to be brilliant to attempt who i disagree with. that is somebody who is health plan, who data not here, but you know, other places it takes a lot of work. it all seems to indicate that montero is right. but why is
5:20 pm
richardson bringing this up now? well, it has to do with the fact that the white house is pushing a green agenda getting off fossil fuels. washington says the situation is getting pretty risky. richardson is raising the alarm about china's control over vital minerals. here she is a few weeks back. i think they're there to undermine the united states. i think it might be even closer to a 100000000000 of chinese investment in this region. i think they're playing checkers. china has been investing a lot in latin america over the past decade at the same time as social governments are popping up across the region. governments that don't feel like they are washington 1st dibs. foreign minister of brazil admitted that china's role in the region is pretty positive and that they're not viewed as a predatory warrant galler. so we don't see china as a for if we have a very mutual beneficial relationship. the darkest power of the panoramic, the 1st next scenes were everywhere from china, from one of the states was doing vaccine protectionism and wouldn't even share
5:21 pm
vaccines with the neighbors. well, china was shipping vaccines from thousands miles away. richardson fears that the united states is losing a hearts and mine. here she is speaking back in march, the russian media conglomeration russia today in spanish, as well as the sputnik mundo, that i mentioned earlier, is continue. i mean, it used to have 7000000 followers and rti spanish and now over 18000000. their ability to put out this information and just so on environment that is full of untruths is, is very prevalent in the region. the president of mexico has been speaking up about washington viewing latin america as it's backyard. he's also asserting public and all over natural resources like richardson is being forced to be the bearer of bad news to us policies 1000 a border are coming home to roost. the serious economic consequences, jayla bobbin
5:22 pm
r g d r. some are reaction to this head of middlesex universities research group on latin america francisco. and i guess the u. s. has always used the heavy handed approach to the region as it tries to maintain its interest. there everybody knows that the cool, again everyone seems team was about the bullying they originally if you, if you say the, the cost of only seeing that girl in tina and she land mexico actually that amount to the 50 percent of the total in the world that is clear indication of, you know, treatable later than the european union participate as actively in forfeiting the cool the problem they have is they, how can they in the so the weakest say that the united states in decline, fine. he's able to actually reassess the germany economy. we want to
5:23 pm
politically, in a region that he's actually revolt, as indicated by a china is right, because china doesn't want to the united states china one to ensure that there is a transition from a unit a well. and china, we're with the resources to be able to offer we projects. when we investment we, we, the rates trading arrangement, if the united states or lose your money in latin america, you know, from their point of view is a major security concern to the right. well, such as john and the lee, then obviously the possibility of not to take my thing there. well, supremacy or finish to asia who are international human rights groups. i've condemned the use of force by sri lankan authorities against anti government
5:24 pm
protesters. it's after thousands took to the streets of the country's largest city, amid the worst economic crisis the island nation seen in decades. ah, according to media reports, the local security forces arrested 11 people and cleared the main protest. your camp, which has been occupied for the past 3 months. army on police arrived and trucks and buses, removing tents and protest. bonner's several people were reportedly attacked with buttons and suffered injuries. for like, it has been experiencing political and economic turmoil with a 1000000 struggling to afford food fuel. the crisis led earlier this month to the resignation of the president who had fled the country. but we heard from some of those injured during the cracked on who say they quote, to run for their lives to escape the cracked earned by the authorities. and yet, seemingly nelson, to turn them from protesting about the new government houser correspondent,
5:25 pm
heard kill the designated tortoise side. several people have gone, enjoy someone, they hand some their back. so many of them have sexual. but fortunately, shaun's files that night, you were at the secretary at what happened. we informed them, i personally my team informed them that we are going to be do. so they can say that they don't know they've been knowing that it is i knowing that via but to be true because someone is coming and then they will show for us to run, to run for life. and they beat it with the i n drug. and they have disco cables, some type things, and i didn't have them in their legs. foods, they were, they were drunk, the people were drunk and they were using way to bad words. and they were very aggressive. they were like acting totally barbary ditches, as he does it badly. this one is could very badly. he can barely walk again. well,
5:26 pm
is it what now for the protest? you can keyless again he does he against do whatever you want to do, but we'll keep, keep going, we'll say you can, you can keep us all from here even. but somewhere somehow we will keep going. america is chief of space operations. house confirmed ukrainian troops has been provided with certain stellar capabilities which come from the u. s. but not the state spaces of him. and we've seen that in this, in this conflict, the commercial spaces provided capabilities that have been helpful to, to ukraine as well. yeah, we're into the private sector. know there have been a number of reports in major media outlets about commercial satellite systems being used for military purposes in ukraine. one of them is ilan must star link,
5:27 pm
which has given a critical communications lifeline to ukrainian forces. according to earth force magazine, some details on that star link can fly over 200 kilometers above a war zone to beam down high speed internet access. because it's in a lower earth orbit, it can receive and transmit information faster than traditional communication satellites. not catalog. frontline ukrainian trips to communicate with a chain of command that stretches. hundreds of kilometers. former un weapons inspector in iraq. scott ritter believes commercial and military communication should be kept separate. if you want to use a certain communications capability for humanitarian purposes, it needs to be totally dedicated to that purpose. the moment there's crossover with the same system that you're applying for humanitarian use. you now are using it for military use. all of those systems can be in the military in nature. we make it
5:28 pm
very clear what she mandatory in law says. there can be no connectivity between the 2. none whatsoever. it what the law must is doing. and ukraine is absolutely unacceptable, and actually push legitimate humanitarian workers lives at risk. because if you're operating one of those terminals, you are now a legitimate military target. and if i was a russian, i would view every single one of you on most terminals in ukraine as a hostile target, worthy of being destroyed as soon as it's detected. i'm not is where we leave the news run up for now this weekend more programs, right? ahead though, see what showing where you are today. in moments, this is our t international. ah ah
5:29 pm
