2:06 pm
should i reach her? i'm near to the to when i live nearby. so i heard the explosions last night. i almost confused it with fireworks, but then i looked at the window and saw the pedal mines were used to all of this. so i just went to work as usual, this opportunity mind part of the streets. so the people can move about the ukrainians. want to eliminate us, the people, but we're strong. they don't want us here, but we won't leave. we are patriots what? no one will be able to put done. it's gone. it's nice to, i'm looking at than yes. can you help from russia? here in then, as has been instrumental in the last few days, especially when ukraine began bombing this city and covering the entire area with those that's all minds. as you can see, a russian engineers well russian engineer core are here working to try and make sure that no civilians are hurt in this. well, you can only call in a terrorist attack against civilians already. one person was hurt by these pencil
2:07 pm
mines. grew monk also have r t, the nest people's republic. oh, now we go back to our breaking news story, air raid sirens and clashes have been reported in the kosovo city of new tro visa, near a border crossing with serbia for more. we're going to go now to belgrade based political analyst, alexander povich. alexander 5 is thanks for joining us on the program. so what's the latest you're hearing from where you are? well, the latest is on, you know, the president of serbia said that you know, at, at midnight costs. so security. busy forces of so called costs or is going to start stopping people from crossing into from serbia proper into all the costs of all province, which serbia still considers its own. it doesn't recognize its independence and they're going to make them, you know, whoever has papers a republic of serbia,
2:08 pm
papers id papers for license plate, they're going to make them change them to the temporary either temporary to temporary id. and also to take up a temporary license plate and also for the service for living in the northern cost of all you know, they're going to give them 2 months to she was changed. license plates to have officials. so quote, fossil light weight, you know, i'm servicing north, pardon? so it's a crisis and it may, it was a special by, oh my god. oh, wow. and so, you know, at that time this was late june, our president plan will ask for that
2:09 pm
because of all the security forces would start and then cleansing campaign of the serbs in, in northern castillo. so it's a tense situation. we had a similar situation a year ago where the authorities of the so called cost of or attempted a similar thing regarding license plates. and they actually did send us special forces at that time into the northern part of coastal, which is majority serbs. and then up people and so i sure, yeah, i, you know,
2:10 pm
i, well, you know, there's a lot of speculation in the media, the cost of our military may, sorry, actually as we're actually running out of time here and also the connections a bit bad, but we're going to, we're going to see if we can come back to the story a bit later. alexander poverty belgrade bass political analyst. thanks for joining us in the program. the russians invited investigators from 2 international organizations for a probe to keep the legit shelling of a detention facility in the den. yes, the people's republic were 50 ukrainian prisoners of war were killed. all scout says ukraine carried out the attack on the site located in the town of union of car, which blames russia while kia blames russian forces warning. you may find the following. images disturbing. united nations and the red cross have been invited to probe. friday's shelling of the detention center, which russia says was carried out with a u. s. supplied hi mars. rocket artillery system. dozens of p o double use remain
2:11 pm
in the hospital after the attack. oscar was called the shelling a direct provocation by key of made possible by american weapons, adding that ukraine has subsequently tried to cover up its role in an apparent war . crime carried out to intimidate its own troops. earlier i interviewed canadian at journalist they were bartlett who was at that scene. this is clearly an intentional strike on this facility. and it's notable by the way, i went to the a hospital that was treating some of the injured i after going to this prison. and although we weren't able to go inside to see the prisoners, they were in critical condition. a doctor did come out and give a statement and he said that the prisoners are in critical condition. they are undergoing surgeries, they're being given the medicine and the care that they need. and now i just want to point out the irony and that russia is giving ukrainian presents, of, or medical treatment, no matter. you know,
2:12 pm
in spite of the fact that these are you and the combatants and it is ukraine that is caused, that is inflicted. there are potentially mortal injuries on them. here's a perfect example of an out now war crime committed by ukraine went western weapon reach and it is russia that is mopping up the mass. how do you think this incident is going to affect the morale among ukrainian troops? currently in combat? well, i mean, we seen many, a videos being shared on social media and telegram, et cetera of ukrainian troops saying like we don't have support from, you know, our commanders were being, in some cases were being fired upon by our own army. were being deserted, were being sent out to the front lines who are not equipped to fight our being sent to our death. so i, i would say their morale was probably already quite low, but i mean, this is just the next blow, i mean a day even they were again, ironically, and in safe hands in rush and imprisonment because they were being kept safe. they
2:13 pm
were being fed, et cetera, but nonetheless, targets by their own government. i mean it's, it's, it's, i can't imagine they could have any morale at this point. so we've seen similar things in syria. we, we had in syria a terrorist, whether there are al qaeda for syria, army, isis, et cetera, intimidating civilians from it wouldn't be the same as surrendering. but from crossing from terrorist held areas into steering government areas intimidating down by threats that the government would rape or execute them. so we, and we've seen the same kind of strategies that have played out in syria are being played out in ukraine. or we're gonna go back to our breaking news story now in the balkans between kosovo and serbia. we're going to go cross to our guests. we lost connection with just a little bit ago, alexander poppet, she's based in fel grade. he's a political analyst tie there again, alexander. so i just wanted to continue our discussion. i wanted to ask you about
2:14 pm
the speculation in the media that kosovo is military, may attack serbia within several hours. what do you think about that? well they're not going to attack serbia. what they might do is that they might attack to serbs and not in the north of coastal, which of course it is officially part of serbia. so they're not going to attack serbia proper. but they might attack the serbs in northern part of castillo, and they did this last year. so it wouldn't, it wouldn't be something that wasn't done previously. last year we had a similar crisis where the prime minister of so called castillo, tried to impose this. so our visa, coastal license plates, i'm the serbs in northern close. so and they refused, of course. then he sent in special forces and actually, you know, they all beat up. some mas serves in northern post. so and serbia at the army
2:15 pm
through the border to the administrative border, they had to send some helicopters and it was a pretty, i was a pretty hot ha issue. and then the, you brief broker, temporary kind of agreement. and i'll be happy that you gave them time to come up with a permanent agreement, but it hasn't happened. so, you know, something's going to start happening starting at noon. i mean, at midnight, probably they meet what they may do with the so full. busy civil police, it might start start popping. busy all from again, from serbia proper into cost of all and make them take temporary license plate temporary i b. s. you know, so you know, and it's incidents might start happening. and you know, that's what the serbian president is concerned about, especially because the west is not doing a thing to pressure the cost of authorities on you not to back down to la
2:16 pm
respect previously signed agreements. and you know, this is a very similar problem q. what was happening in ukraine for 8 years with the mincing agreement. you know, we have you or european powers brokering a peace agreement which and then they didn't press one of the sites to him. you know, in your brain to impress ukrainian sites and hearing gap. they haven't pressed the also aside to implement in agreement that was actually broken by the new you. that's why we have what do you, what kind of response do you think we can expect from other countries after what's going on right now? well, you know, the thing is we'll see how serbia respond. serbia can't allow for the serbs in northern crossover to be to be abused again,
2:17 pm
physically or otherwise by the so called costs of security forces are the, wes probably won't do much. you know, the thing is ever since the ukrainian conflicts started as serbia has been under great pressure from the western capitals to impose sanctions on russia. you know, on serbia, along with breast cancer, to go in again the serbs living there were the only countries here that having a whole sanctions in russia were surrounded by natal or you and nato. and so the work for very, very well, anything that you know, you are gauge the russia. so, you know, i are pretty sure here in belgrade that the west is actually using the cost of obedience to pressure or downgrade and just serves in general
2:18 pm
are alexander province belgrade based political analysts. thanks for joining us on the program for bringing and bringing us your insight. thanks for having me. ah, the sunday marks navy day in russia, a national celebration honoring sailors and their ships. countrywide, the main parade took place in saint petersburg featuring a flotilla of the navy's finest vessels. here are some of the highlights. ah ah, ah, similar parades went on across the major port cities in russia and even beyond

2:20 pm
a hot sc see bearing sea. also the baltic and coral straits un. we will protect them firmly. by all means. the key here is the capabilities of the navy, and it is able to respond immediately to any one who decides to encroach on our sovereignty and freedom. our navy, successfully and honor fully carries our strategic missions on the frontiers of our country and in any parts of the world's oceans, are a union better. what can we got? reaction to the newly signed doctrine from air marshal and motus warren and indian air force. veteran and the head of the peninsula foundation think tank. he says the document signals that russia intends to firmly protect its interests. it's a very important signal because it actually signals the russia willing to predict the interest anyway to go up the low on the bottom. i lay a fresh semester, i think i wouldn't be the growth in the process and if you look at what happened
2:21 pm
with that might be in the early 2000. ready ill lot of people who look forward to live and look that action by the way, back again. not just for any specific interest, but the thing to show the family. but more importantly for the global button and a balance of power system to be in the world, india, china will play a major role in getting the word table and the more, you know, balanced, more rationalize global governance system, i would say, or the next 20 years that would make their life, and this is what i hope i'm in that context. something country is recovering its own traditional strength and staples of stimuli. so this maybe natal, excuse me, bottom copies rushes, foreign minister survey lab rob conducted

a smile in congo. the hogs at smiles and jokes that greeted lover were more representative of an old pals reunion rather than formal diplomacy. a, in each country, they all saw it the same. russia, enjoying overwhelming appreciation for supporting african anti colonial movements more than half a century ago. while recognizing the independence of african states, this report been with us for the last 100 years. how can we be with again, this is a, how can you have been going to somebody was never hom does. the venues for labrems 3 were picked carefully and wisely. a no gonna. he was greeted by a veteran african ruler and opinion leader. while in congo it was the turn of a regional influencer. at the country's hound since 1979 and then on to cairo,
2:25 pm
an ad is had about they had quarters of 2 powerful original bodies. the arab league and the african union. both said they had failed pressure from the west ahead of the visit. but i'm 40 right now. these instincts have colonialism emerge in the politics of western countries when they demand the whole well take their side and running against all the others. one day they asked me a question. are you approached, woke rose. i should, you must, you must come when you do. why do you think of my many job used to be for some wood? i am through, i should've, in fear of provocation african union ambassadors asked for a meeting in russia's embassy while the arab league was less intimidated. although asked by western diplomats not to be pictured with lab rob, in protest at russia's actions in ukraine. they gave a rather clear response. the west with his sanctions and condemnation basically pushed russia closer towards asia and africa. but as soon as it realised they could

2:27 pm
tulip stabilized global food prices, which would already at record levels even before the war at tonight's mad for developing countries. and with the west, realizing the rush it to blame for everything car didn't help. it used a very unexpected joker. now see if russia is one of the last imperial colonial powers, it has decided to invade a neighboring country to defend its interests. that's the reality. it's a bitter irony to hear such sentiments from the leader of the country that has been colonized in africa for decades. that has basically never stopped seen. the continent has its own property, years after independence movements to called have to use in it as a backyard for nuclear tests. and as an endless base for free natural resources. the russian foreign minister is not the only one to win africa the they also make in their journey on the french president,
