journalist diva bartlett, who narrowly escaped being hit by a miss saul spoke to the program earlier. the 1st blast occurred around 10 20 am in a series of blast within a few minutes. so when things calm down turtle, i started going outside to document the damage. there was unfortunately one dead woman just outside the hotel. i was actually in the hotel when it started. i was working and i went and after the 1st 3 very strong explosions, i went to the hotel lobby at the time that the assistant to the camera man was injured. that was the 5th blast, a very powerful blast. right next to the hotel. i had just stepped back from the, from the lobby. so it, thankfully, um, i'm sorry that he was injured, but yeah, that's, that's where i was at the time. and about an hour prior, i had been working in the room that took the most damage out because this hotel is a journalist, go to it because it's a central location and it has powerful why fi and those her tools that we need. so
1:03 pm
i'm pretty sure that ukraine knows that this is a hotel, that journalist i stay in. i don't think that this was accidental. it's now. com. but people ever, of course, on edge knowing that if you crane is struck the center already a few times, not could happen at any moment. a warning again, you may find the following image is upsetting video as a paid on social networks showing more victims of the shelling and don't. yes, a grandmother and her granddaughter were found dead in a park. they, when they discovered by the girls grandfather, the woman's husband who confirmed with much anguish that they were his left ones. sonya, i have no documents to prove. we are relatives. but this is my granddaughter and here lies my wife. the projectile flew here. it is your buena, the shell struck the theatre in the don based palace hotel. 2 civilians and one member of the military were killed. the blast tore the civilians apart and a char just flew past me. i feel incredibly motion. i hope no one ever experiences
1:04 pm
anything like that. you have to publish that. i came out from a shop after the blast, which forced every one to hide in a basement. we have no idea what's next, whether there will be further attacks. out is ramone, cancer, everything, dawn yeske as well and has more on what else was hating today's attack. once again, multiple districts have been shelled in the city of vanessa, including the very center of the city, of course. so don bass palace hotel, where many journalists, including foreigners, are a staying and as well as a drama theater, which is located just about a 100 meters away from where we are. now, this is not the 1st time that said the nest has been show. this has been happening over the last 8 years to continuously. of course sir shelling had intensified over the last few months since this thought of the special military operation. now, a local officials believed that though the reason for 2 days shelling was at the funeral. all for colonel all got got euro,
1:05 pm
who was killed on her return from a mission in girl of god. of course. so she's been given the honor of the hero of the next people's republic, as well as an honor of a hero of russia, which was assigned by president vladimir putin and local officials believe. and that this is exactly why ukraine decided to show the center of the city to disrupt her funeral. let's take a listen. go. chris's e. we should probably have expected that this would happen that such a service would not have been allowed to take place so easily. i think the ukrainians targeted the theater. how ukrainian officials have it should their own state been saying that they are not to blame for the deaths of civilians in the center of the nest and that their army is not to blame for they shelling of the center of the city as in that they never, ever target civilians or civilian infrastructure. however,
1:06 pm
the reality on the ground is very different. we've been working here for the last 8 years. and hundreds, literally hundreds of people have been killed in the last 4 months alone as the result of ukrainian artillery shilling. and there are plenty of fun. there's plenty of proof and expertise on of that as well. now we're waiting to find out what exactly the nest was shelled with. a local officials are saying that reportedly ukraine used high caliber 155 millimeter nato made rockets. ah, and we did find a few of fragments of the shell that landed in boss palace hotel. we've already taken the pictures and footage of that senator specialists, and we will find out exactly what that rocket was independent journalist luke with a belief such cases where civilian infrastructure is targeted, a usually ignored by western media. as alice simply copy and paste information directly from ts. the fact that yes, army over the last years, yes,
1:07 pm
shell bomb don't. yes. repeatedly, while it is not a military target, just to kill civilians is, is really any is more tend to press. these things are not mentioned. you know, it's one thing to have collateral damage. there are collateral damages, unfortunately, in every conflict, but in this instance, it's not the case. it is bombing a city with a population which has nothing to do with the armies on the field. and so it is really difficult in the sense that they should method bomb the city of don't, yes. and here in the west recently, people don't know. they think it's a village doing it. they don't know. it's the same size is brussels. radical from so it's on. it's really terrible. then the media in the west. just copy and paste
1:08 pm
what comes from here. and i wonder if this will be mentioned in the news tonight. level human rights organization, amnesty international has stated ukrainian force is purposely used schools, hospitals, and other civilian objects is basis for their traits. motion foreign ministry spokesman, american movie is a, however, responded by saying russia has been reporting on key on using civilians as human shields. for some time. we have documented a pattern of ukrainian forces put in civilians. a trace can violate the loss of war when the operating populated areas at $22.00 of $29.00 schools with amnesty researches are the hall and soldiers using the passes or found evidence of currents or prior military activity includes in the past and so military fatigues, discarded munitions on the ration packets and military vehicles. we talk about these all the time, calling the actions of the armed forces of ukraine,
1:09 pm
the tactics of using the civilian population as a human shield. amnesty international added ukraine has been endangering selling civilians by putting a not only troops, but also weapon systems in residential areas. branding that move, a violation of humanitarian law, demanding he stop using civilians and the conflict to evacuate them from old battle grounds. while moscow was blamed by the organization for cause and indirect casualties and public areas by using highly destructive weapons, states, ukraine's military journalist and author look review again, save. it's of the view ukrainian authority and danger that citizens for p r purposes. amnesty international, which is respected everywhere. what's in the west, that is important because it's usually very much less leaning and, and perceive this as quite neutral. and in this are really on mentioning things that are totally unacceptable. so for the governments,
1:10 pm
it will be difficult in germany as well as everywhere. france, italy, in places because that will be questions they think simply that the population that the student population is a protection for them. that's all they just high within the population in the cities and villages just to, to avoid the shelling of the russian artillery that so really not the way to, to wrong to, to behave in a conflict for an army. but of course then they can produce that press release is saying that the rush army aims 1st and killing civilians by shelling schools and hospitals and showing photos of hospitals. forgetting that it is their troops, your gray and troops that were in the building and were show by the russian army. the chinese army is currently involved in large scale military exercises in the taiwan straits. drills have been conducted in 6 zones around the island which overlap lands there. taipei claims
1:11 pm
a point of its territorial waters. the chinese defense industry confirms the use of ballistic missiles, time pay safe and responsive. activated defense has been cleaning. 11 of those missiles landed in waters around the island today, the backdrop to all that's us. how speak and nancy pelosi is recent visit to taiwan . hello, see met high ranking time when he's officials, including the deputy speaker, along with thailand's president, all of that came despise a strong backlash from beijing under warning to washington. that is, actions in the region will have consequences. the u. s. in terms of it's still firmly committed to its core one china principle, and there was no reason for waging to overreact. we discussed the developments with a journalist from china working just across the taiwan straits and fiji and province. he believes pelosi trip to taiwan was
1:12 pm
a deliberate provocation. so military knows it earlier i said the purpose is to us, lot of the interference by external forces and the separate schemes for taiwan, independence, the chinese emitter, to announce the exact locations about 38 hours ahead of the exercises and the warns of vessels and aircraft now to answer these areas for safety reasons that it follows an international practice tab on question the most important and a sensitive issue of china us relations. what a nancy pelosi has done is not about i'm holding democracy about a provocation and infringement on china solvency and territory integrity. her visit was her one, is a bridge of america is the political commitment of 5 assurances for china closes, visit a sense of wrong signal to the separatist of forces or taiwan independence and escalate tensions across. that's how a street is a very dangerous one. many people here pointed out that close it's provocation is
1:13 pm
all about and making personal political gains is a sheer political fuss. there are also people saying, with a well philosophy is a one staging this act that china, yours relationship and appears as the ability in the region that are taking the top . in general, the visit arouses a strong indignation among the chinese people. and people here are optimistic about a complete radio, and if occasion of china, arthur meeting last week with the taiwanese president, nancy pelosi made some muddled up remarks. she cited benjamin franklin bit confused, a famous quote on the unity of liberty and safety. benjamin franklin, the presidency, said, freedom and democracy, freedom and democracy. one thing security here. if we don't have, we can't have it either. if you don't have both, one trip came with words of hope, freedom, security, and unity. the 3rd in line to the u. s. presidency was criticized by many for
1:14 pm
making be contentious stop on the island territory, which is driven up even bigger wedge in relations between china and washington. political sets. here is that ted roles phase, the taiwan issue is not want to, many americans are thinking about at all. this was an inherently ridiculous journey. it seems to be an attempt on the part of the democratic party preceding the november 2022 mid term elections to look tough on foreign policy. something that they sort of never do. even though really they are these days more aggressive than their republican counterparts. and i'm disappointed, you know, nancy pelosi used to be one of america's sharpest and brightest politicians. but look like we all get old and we all get past her expiration date. i think that's fair to say that the house speaker appears to be moving in that direction. and of course it's not even a friday and slip that she mangled. benjamin franklin, you know, i think she's become such a china hawk such
1:15 pm
a militarist over the years in her position and her alliance with the military industrial complex that she's not even able to even remember that there is a significant part of american political culture that is highly skeptical of militarism and adventure as them overseas. i mean, these days america's or americans are really focused on inflation, inflation and inflation. they're really worried about the economy. and to a secondary level, they're worried about the federal reserve bank, perhaps going too far and driving the economy back into a ditch, into a recession as they have done in similar circumstances in the past. i think this is not going to move the needle very much. i don't think anyone cares. among american voters about taiwan and china and, you know, i, before a memorial event lists, he gets hands away to monkey 2nd on a vest. we have to block that devastated supportive barriers in lebanon. a huge fraction of the surviving grain silos by collapse,
1:16 pm
sending dusts consigned into the ad. no injuries have been report it. the boston rocks lebanon's capital in august, the 4th 2020 left more than 200 people dead and more than 6000 injured. as well as causing billions of dollars worth of damage. the sailors had her special significance. been many bailey residence, having observed much of the shock wave of the explosion and the soothing the city from even more damage. we heard from the man of the port district of bay where 2 recalls the tragedy. i was home and heard a plane hovering overhead. then a few seconds later i heard something like a shot, and another 5 seconds later the explosion thundered. probably the projectile hit a certain point 1st and then exploded. i went out of the houses, so people lying on the road, half naked, covered in blood. it was a catastrophe. here we live with dignity, but now everything has changed. as people have lost, everything, banks have left the country. no one can withdraw the money. the situation has
1:17 pm
become deplorable. there's nothing. there's not even any bread flour is being smuggled to syria. there is many government officials have information about why this explosion occurred. many people have heard that this explosion occurred when the phantom plane was flying over the bay route. they knew what was in the port, and at 1st there was a small explosion. and then a huge one will say, why hasn't france given us its satellite images of the port? the french authority said they would give them to us so that we would know the truth. why didn't they do it? because it will expose many people. we spoke to the former austrian foreign minister, he's now living in lebanon now. she shared with us what the country thing going through. ah, the lebanese rushes, the streets and square angry is desperate about this dysfunctional government. because like the last few years, it was all about corruption in 2019 people went to the streets to say hello we are fed up, was this corruption and the explosion harvey anita, was
1:18 pm
a very tragic symbol. wasn't a symbol. hundreds of people got fields, but all did not seek for at this fact from the administration. we have seen 11 long friends, huge political criminal cases. if you want to call them, it was over like the f as a nation off a former prime and is the highly the even established and international, corporate to my humble opinion was not really the right way to thing to do. it only costs money and nothing ever moved a little what the lebanese need is the trust in a credit for administration and government, and it's not there, but it's nothing specific for them. i always call lebanon. i like the laboratory, all international affairs. so many other levels, because i thought that he
1:19 pm
a few of us a short period later, we can see it happen out all about the infrastructure. no electricity wants to supply very difficult. people organized the own in high since it is very, very sorry for the people who pay to stay alive with the house who lost the houses . and it's, it just came at the moment when the lebanese anyway suffocated by economic circumstances. so my deep respect was the people who somehow continue russia's defense ministry claims is found new evidence of us involvement in biological activities that may have led to a wider outbreak of the covey pandemic. and currently the monkey pokes virus, mu, precision. chuck we tre, secluded trends past agents that fall into the zone of interest of the pentagon subsequently become as president pandemic,
1:20 pm
while the beneficiaries are american pharmaceutical companies and their patrons, the leaders of the united states democratic party, nazis. rachel blevins earlier filled us in on the latest n i. d findings. russia's defense ministry is referencing a series of documents which they release. and they said that they obtain these documents as part of the ongoing investigation in the u. s. funded by a labs in ukraine. now, one of the major allegations from these documents is that the u. s. has been actively funding corona virus research since at least 2009, using funding from the u. s. agency for international development. now when it comes to one of the main programs that was mentioned there, they talked about the predict program. notably one of the founders of that is met by o. one of the u. s. companies that has been found to be directly involved in ukrainian bio labs. so a lot of this is like it's coming full circle when it comes to these allegations that are being made from these documents. but they also said it wasn't just
1:21 pm
research. they said that there were drills that were being carried out, both in ukraine and even in the united states. specifically, johns hopkins university, where they looked at a response to a korean virus outbreak. and also looked at transmission from bats to humans. and how that would play out. now, all of this comes as russia, as defense, ministry says that it also has findings related to cranium. soldiers who have retreated and they found that in their bloodstream, there were levels of opioids and even meth and fellow means raising questions about whether ukraine was actively drugging its soldiers in order to alter their mental state. similar to the ways in which nazi germany has been accused of dragging its soldiers back during world war 2. so a lot of major allegations made here. now we notably did reach out to us a i d for comment, but they have yet to respond. russia says,
1:22 pm
is concerned over tensions, but in the disputed territory of nicole know, care about in the school for a diplomatic solution to the crisis with foreign ministry says it's in close contact with both of the opposing sides. armenia. and as my john rush peacekeepers working on the ground and attempts to stabilize the situation, as of now, there are no active battles going on on the general secretary of the collective security treaty organization. and the line for post soviet states has called on both sides to further refrain from violence. his correspondence, maria fin ocean with mo pensions are high in the disputed territory of nevada, and he cut off 20 months after the military conflict. there had ended up with the si, fi agreement between a media and as it by john mediated with the help of russia. on wednesday, as it by johnny troops launched an air strike heat in armenian military unit, claiming it was a response to the armenian armed forces,
1:23 pm
illegal activity in the area. and now, but who is saying it's taking control over the strategic hides and key territories in the cut off region at the same time or media is blaming as it by john for violating the cease fire agreement. one as it by john into our meeting. soldiers have been confirmed dead, we've a 14 more armenians reported one good. there was already an international reaction to what's happening in the board and they could, over with you and washington, both calling to end the fighting. the gordon incredible has announced a partial mobilization and he's now saying that is trying to stabilize the situation in that region with the help of the russian. he's keeping forces patient in the area. this conflict is more than 3 decades old and i've gotten it could have been broke away from. was it by john with the help of armenia after the collapse of the soviet union in the early 99. he's in 2020 as it by john and of mania for to war and but who was able to win back some of the territories and the sides then
1:24 pm
agreed to end the fire, but apparently the region still remains a source of trouble and were tied romanian general thinks his wishful thinking to expect relations between russia and the west to return to their pre war status soon after the fighting stops. and ukraine. the thing thought paid in our school by the director of the foreign policy planning departments of the russian foreign ministry. he thinks that the 30 year era of generally constructive all be at not problematic cooperation with the west is a reference. it's completely over when he's to russia is engaged in a struggle with an alliance of unfriendly states led by the us. well, let's discuss this further, shall we, and bring in our panel of guess we're joined by dr. george saw me will a page the senior research fellow and global policy institute and roger of sic re, former secretary in the of the indian ministry of external affairs. and awkward
1:25 pm
with stuff, the director of asia census, both studies on translations. thank you all 3 of you for joining us on the program this evening. it's very, very great good of you take your time for us us questions or dr. saw me. will you please do you think relations between rushman, the, with a gun for good, like they say, can they ever recover? well, i haven't done so good is a very categorical statement. i think it's very hard to see any improvement in relations for at least the generation probably 2 generations of the risk of break between russia and the west is now. busy so profound that it's hard to see how it can be mended anytime in the near future. i mean, even if the west is dream wish and resident who didn't magically vanish from the scene and was replaced by some behavior or by charles. so
1:26 pm
i figure, i don't think very much would change because even a lot by kills like big who would still have to address all of the they read that is accumulated during the past couple of decades. and that's going to take a long time this week away, and question to logic. vickery please, i'm a retired, we manian general. he said the war ukraine is open, the rift between free and all the traffic states that support this b. i think that this is a war of your politics where national interests i'm ward and ideology has very little to do with it. these are just labels which are to justify putting everything in the wall, which is done is done under a maurer power more. but no, this is an existing show back to that. i think russia is, is fighting. we all know why it's started and to come to the question of the
1:27 pm
west and russia. i think i agree with that it's going to be difficult to do, and i think it would be because it ignores many centuries of history. i mean russia has been in war with europe, it's culture history. it's a security. busy 4 or 3400 years, and russia has always played a role in ensuring european security. whether it was in protecting russia from the long was whether it was napoleon, whether it was hitler, the whole post world war 2 older and was where the russia, the integrity part. it's not just 30 years. i think it's, it's a much longer process which is at work. and the russ verity and peace that europe enjoyed was because an understanding was reached, the russia, i mean,
1:28 pm
the helsinki agreements were a foundation for war. ringback the normalization of relations, so we have the best german gas for pipe lions a pipe. so or deed was or was it was a very, very major opening which showed that germany or france and russia and vice versa. now, all that is being dismantled and i think this lead tragic for all parties concerned and europe will be a very heavy price for the attitude that they have taken to was russia in this matter. a question, say, mr must offer, please add to what extent do us russian relations affects other countries relations with russia? the problem is, and they just called it from, i guess you already intervened yesterday to just charge you know, one of the governors on the i mean he's living in austria and now the government trying to make the form of all kinds of taxation on the austrian people just
1:29 pm
paid for indirectly for what's called the war. again, it's marsha, i like that, but unfortunately he bought the suit america and and christian and died him because unfortunately when we think about the independence entity. but unfortunately, the have in this conflict in a conflict and also we have a lot of pressure in the united states and we know the history after the war 2 once they got it. marshall opposed just to europe and i and the construct your booking and such time your book in countries unfortunately be likely holder and have to pull the i'm not independent and they're relations. we are a washer and also we have something else. we have to evidence walk on
1:30 pm
a legend now even the trans atlantic agreement between. 3 busy busy you and your, the, the people the already committed and, you know, at this too many and people charge made by the bbc that you work in. people didn't had any random concerning such agreement that was made in 2016 in august to sell the american product within the your because you can see was higher than the u. s. dollar. and that's going to be some sort of obsession benefits for both type rate. but if you course it by doing that to make your countries and people buying the american may be not the same level of quality as you can make. the problem here, as i said from the very beginning is united states not europe because europe unfortunately is dependent on the american making decision because the dynamo of the question.
