oh, what on the wall, she my indiana. oh, i can send more. a mortgage to you, you'll love a little more than to give us a a u. s. secretary of state tries to convince south africa to sever ties with russia and china. as pretoria says, it does, will not bow to pressure from any country. this that we exist on, the summer coach is i think that's totally a radio, unfounded as the west defends israeli attacks on garza as self defense. accusations of double standards are piling up, especially with the conflict, the new brain and the spotlight, and pro piano social media. shares of video that appears to show ukrainian troops
9:01 pm
dropping a bomb on russian soldiers as they retrieve a body from the battlefield. ah, good morning from moscow studios of art international to wherever you're tuning and from i'm carol is about with the hours most pressing stories. happy to have you with us. south africa's top politician slams u. s. secretary of state anthony blank, and after he said that the country only cooperates with russia and china under pressure. this fear that we exist under some push is i think that totally a rear, unfounded. a belief in the relationship that we have with eva country is also a concern about countries that have mineral interests in african countries are not there as a destabilizing force. so i think we need to look at the foot thorough of problems
9:02 pm
that give rise to insecurity, bad governance, and the absence of democracy on the african continent. it's not a one country problem that has anthony blanc and travels to pretoria to deliver a speech d telling the by did administration's policies for african countries during which he blames a food crisis in africa on the warranty of crane and cause for a stronger partnership with the continental deal with that, we seen the repercussions of russia's warn ukraine, which are felt across the planet. and especially across africa, in rising food, energy prices. what we seek most of all is a true partnership between the united states and africa. we don't want an unbalanced or transactional relationship. and our commitment to a stronger partnership with africa is not about trying to out. do anyone else try these? you fall by and is he's, he's
9:03 pm
a tear. it was to we as south africa in africa from china. so united states was there, says trading pop novels, africa, and russia and china, me to web ha, to protest. i fairly, she to coincide with blankets, visit the white house, released a document detailing it's new u. s. strategy towards sub saharan regents in it. the u. s. claims that china and russia's attempts to strengthen ties in the region are solely motivated by self interest. though the secretary of state emphasized at washington will not dictate to african countries how to behave. the document however, contains a list of recommendations on how to tackle acute problems, such as the crone of virus. pandemic, climate change, global food insecurity and terrorism. and while the u. s. a still trying to convince everyone that rushes actions in ukraine are the root of all troubles. the african public seems to find more faith in ties with bricks,
9:04 pm
countries than the west. america has been playing with us for a long time. it's now time for, for bricks to grow. i think more african countries encouraged to be better off the brakes. and you can see did you feel of 19, so love rica. i'm shoe ice also, spinoza, roma, joining that club. you have such developed countries know like your, your china show region could assist other countries in terms of having to achieve the same living off in foster child economy the, to the, in, at this point in time. ok, let's go live now to jo altman, hosts of the conservative daily podcast jo anthony blankets trip occurred shortly after survey lab. rob was warmly welcomed by several african countries. what's your take on that? timing is reaping the product of decades of the sea manipulation
9:05 pm
by the us apparatus. and they're trying to basically measure the effects of that visit and whether or not they're going to have to do any damage control going into the future. and what kind of, if any, appetite african nations have for any u. s. promises that they're going to make today, that they will not fulfill tomorrow. yeah, and i'm blanking has also claimed that the u. s. will not dictate africa's choices . however, he went on to accuse russia of exploiting the instability at africa. do you think that the u. s. will actually respect any foreign policy choices that these african countries make? you know, i gotta tell you, i spend a lot of time in the middle east in africa, and i don't think that the u. s. has ever respected the sovereignty of other nations. and when they talk about the stabilization, they can look no further than themselves. and the sad part about with the us says it's just a bunch of rhetoric and look, i'm, i'm an american and i'm proud to be an american, but the apparatus within the u. s. government has long been a d, stabilizing force and almost putting, you know, african,
9:06 pm
a place where they can't grow, they can't excel at the same rate, that other countries across the world are growing. and that has a lot more to do with their natural resources. and how they can get access to those resources. so no, i don't believe they respect the sovereignty of any decisions that they make. and i and i, i'm, i'm actually fearful that it's going to become a tug of war. and the people of those african agent, 54 nations, are the ones who are going to suffer. right. and also in its new strategy, 1st sub saharan africa, the white house has failed to mention its european allies. do you think the u. s. will take into account their interest or will they ignore them. now the u. s. a foreign policy has long been the rabbit. busy dog that your friend, that is your friend until it's not your friend. and that goes for people in the united states as well. so just a problem for foreign nations. so no, i don't think that they're going to put any of their interest. and when you, when you talk about interest, you have to be very, very specific about the interest that they're going to represent. if not their
9:07 pm
partners in, in your, their european partners. that may be, that they are, will, you know, represent the interest of the select few that happened to live in those areas are donnas on those areas. but even the american people are left behind by the decisions made by this bloated government in the united states. and to that point, the white house also blames russia and china for global and stability. right. so to what extent is the u. s. able to make such accusations? i don't think they can. we can, we can actually look at a country called sudan and many people that live near station understand what happened in sudan. there was a referendum vote. this was the country and half. and in between that country was the avia district, which is the oil rich district and sudan was long a partner of the united states until president alba, sheer stood out to us interests. and so now we're not going to do that. and so the, the, the chaos instability that ensued and the propaganda was spread across the globe. and obviously the i, c, c, indictments are proven to be false and they just kept their finger on it. so any
9:08 pm
instability that we've seen thus far has typically been the at the hands of, of us center cia interest f b, i would say on a p, i but you know, shadow interest. and so that the chaos has been created in those nations is largely largely been a part of the western strategy in order to take natural resources. and do you think based on what you said in that blank ins visit to south africa and where it to effect for tory is relations with its break partners? do you think it's going to affect that i'm quitting russia and china? no, i actually think that the, the briggs partnership is going to grow and you're going to end up seeing it. you know, brooks represents, obviously the names of the different partner nations i think, is gonna grow to an alphabet. and one of the things that i've, i've been just hold my just gritting my teeth go and this cannot happen is that i think for the 1st time in history the us to do it is going to have to come to ruth with all the decisions they made up to this point and the african
9:09 pm
nation, especially south africa, does not trust the united states. many nations don't trust united states. so what's going to happen throughout all this if i had, if i had to guess is that you'll have certain partner nations that stay on the side of the united states. and then we're going to have a large group that starts to migrate towards supporting china, russia, and some of the other countries that are represented in the bridge environment. and that respects. and what do you think the u. s. strategy will be for africa in terms of considering china's growing influence as well. busy china's employee rush has been there for a long time. the thing about china that people failed to realize is the child has always had an equal, yoked opportunity for what is in their interest and what they want to give to the people in the environment that are trying to help. and so it's, it's, you know, they've been there for decades. they've done things like build roads infrastructure going to the united states has failed to do. and so i don't think that the influence of china has, i think that the people of africa are very grateful for that. and if you will just
9:10 pm
pass all of the technological advancements and the things that china has done, individuals for different nations and for the continent of africa. i think that the u. s. is going to have a hard time based on the fact that they've failed to deliver on any promises for nearly decades. cutting through and pulling china out of their partnerships with many of those nation. so when it comes to south africa partnership with bricks countries, is there anything that the united states can offer? do you think as an alternative to that? i think the individuals in the united states are offering different incentives to individuals and seeing if they can use money or power or some of the, you know, they have agreed metrics that they use to influence individual characters. but i think as a whole, i think the country has, as decided that they're going to move past the united states. and recognizing that they just have never delivered in the people in power within the united states of have certainly not deliver for the american people either. and so we are,
9:11 pm
i don't think anything the united states does right now will be seen as anything other than grandstanding and making empty promises that they will near and in the future. not be able to deliver. jo, all men host of the conservative daily pod has thank you joe. as you, god bless you ah, now to gaza, where at least 44 people have been killed and hundreds are wounded after 3 days of israeli bombing. air strikes have ravaged residential neighborhoods and civilian infrastructure. here some of the latest, but it's from the seen. boone a fragile state far between israel and the palestinian islamic dad. militant group
9:12 pm
reportedly held through monday as hospitals in gaza, struggle to treat the many civilians injured during the weekend of hostilities. palestinian officials say some 650 buildings were damaged before a truce came into effect on sunday. a trickle of rocket fire however, was launched from the palestinian enclave in the moments after. enough is enough. that was the statement by the palestinian observer to the un as the security council held an emergency meeting over the situation and gaza on monday. how many more times will it get to justify bombing over people in garza, until someone says enough, is enough, as the highest authority responsible for the maintenance of international peace and security. how many more years does it get to impose it's in humane blockades and 2000000 people. half of them children,
9:13 pm
until someone says enough is enough. joining us live now is our t corresponded kale of mop and kayla. give us more details on the un security council meeting. well, the un security council, the 15 member body that leads the united nations, convened a meeting and heard remarks from the palestinian ambassador. and in his remarks, he emphasized israel settlement activities. the continued attacks on civilians, palestinians by israel, and he called on the worlds to take action to restrain is really activities and to bring an end to the conflict. now after he spoke, the un security council was addressed by the representative of israel and the representative of israel. i blamed the violence over the past 3 days, squarely on the shoulders of palestinian forces. here's what he sat. there is no room for falls narratives. the fact are clear,
9:14 pm
the palestinian islamic jihad deliberately fired 1100 rockets at these railey civilians, with roughly 200 lending inside the gaza strip, killing innocent palestinians, and among them young children. this is not an assessment. this is the hard truth. and israel has all the proof now a ceasefire is currently in place after 3 days of violence. and at this point, we understand that 40 palestinians have been killed and hundreds have been wounded . now the representative of the ide states took to the floor of the un security council and made it unequivocally clear what side the united states is on. we fully support israel's right to defend his people against terrorist threats, including from rocket fire, aimed at civilians or without regard to them. now at
9:15 pm
this point a ceasefire is in place. so the words of the palestinian representative to the council seemed to be focusing on drawing toward an end to this conflict and not simply waiting for the next round as some suggested article responded. cale them up and thank you, kayla. and while some western officials justify israel's bombing of gaza as self defense are to reach our teeth. ritual blevins investigate allegations of double standards when it comes to their views on conflicts in other countries. 3 days of clashes between israel and the palestinian militant group included a number of what israel called preemptive air strikes on gaza, which left at least 40 for palestinians, dead including 15 children and more than $300.00 wounded. yet despite the photos and videos that were shared across social media, which showed israel clearly targeting heavily populated residential areas,
9:16 pm
there was virtually no outrage from the west in fact present. and by that has praise the money the u. s. been on the iron dome system and says that it saved countless lives in israel, and he is not the only one turning a blind eye to the collateral damage in garza, we absolutely fully support israel's right to defend itself against terrorist groups that are taking the lives of innocent civilians in israel, the u. k. stands by israel and it's right to defend itself. we condemn terrorist groups firing it civilians and violence which has resulted in casualties on both sides. we call for a swift end to the violence. france condemns the firing of rockets into israeli territory and reiterates its unconditional commitment to the security of israel. the focus was mainly on israel's right to defend itself with no questions asked as to why dozens of palestinian civilians were being killed. while the israeli death toll remains at 0, it's clearly a very different approach than the one western leaders have taken it in recent months,
9:17 pm
where they mourned every ukrainian casualty that was reported and used it to condemn what they called the russian brutality. the u. k. stones united in condemning rushes reprehensible behavior. there were no shades of gray in this conflict. it is about right and wrong. we can become numb to this. we can't normalize this. this is the reality. what's going on every single day, as long as russia's brutality against ukraine continues. that's why these to come to an end. she's not gonna do it. this international justice must prevail. those who committed these crimes will have to answer for them. and speaking of concern over civilians being killed, those western officials were nowhere to be found when ukraine and its altar nationalist killed thousands and don bass over the last 8 years. not only are the tears reserved for certain cases, but so is the selective terminology. you asked, tends to use in their eyes, ukrainians, or heroes, whoever. right?
9:18 pm
you force their will over regions that have declared their independence. but it's the palestinians who are labeled as terrorist, even as some of them live under an internationally recognized israeli occupation. and the have lagossi is plain to see as the headlines it praised ukrainian defenders now condemned palestinian militants. palestinian militants, fire rockets at israel after gaz. air strikes out gun, but defiant, ukrainian twin cities defenders ready for russian attack. and that's not the only double standard. the west seems to have president biden spoke out on sunday, saying he welcome the news of a cease fire in gaza, well refusing to condemn his is reli allies for the killing of civilians. however, the u. s. continues to refuse to encourage ukraine to negotiate a truce with russia. in fact, anyone who dares to try and do so has been that with allegations that they must be pro russian if they are advocating for peace and ukraine. that includes former
9:19 pm
u. k. labor party leader, jeremy corbett, oregon. same isn't going to bring about a solution. it's only going to prolong so true this will or i find disappointing years. but a hobby, any of the world's leaders, usa would priest and he is not the only one. former german chancellor, gerard schroeder, hungarian president, victor orvin, and even henry kissinger had made similar statements. and they have all been accused of being kremlin apologise. and that ukraine appears to be the only place where the west is not allowed to mention peace. and yes, that's including the conflict between kosovo in serbia, where the iep was quick to set up talks or the taiwan strait, where the g 7 immediately called for stability in response to rising tensions between beijing and washington instead of urging for peace. ukraine gets even more war as the vine administration has approved another $1000000000.00 and lethal aid,
9:20 pm
which is notably one of its largest packages so far. an apparent reminder that nations are only allowed to defend themselves when the u. s. as they can, just as they are only allowed to pursue peace with their neighbor. if washington is on board with the plan. fresh footage apparently showing he has troops dropping a bomb on russian soldiers is spreading on pro ukrainian social media. a warning you might find the falling images distressing. the young verified video appears to show the group moving in to retrieve a body from the battlefield. a bomb is then dropped directly onto them from a drone. the soldiers are seen scattering from the effects of the blast, and it's not clear if any of them were killed. fish, journalist anooj puts colbin, who reports from the don bass told us that such ukrainian military actions are aimed at provoking a tough response from russia. and push it through acacia continue and what
9:21 pm
we see here and what we have witnessed, 4 or 8 years, series of occasions against the russian population. and of course, this kind of evens, they are new for russians, but they are not new here for us, for people of dollars and where we are, we have faith, all kind of provocation. but yes, this video was absolutely brutal, absolutely discussing. and and of course the game or laws or moral and ethics, what can be what we see here, what we have witnessed here from the february that the raja is doing a very careful sticks rary oh leaning opperation with lean goals and the other side is which in a total war against russian population in russian communities what they want these . ready the roches oh to don't but troops will. ringback page such kind of trustees,
9:22 pm
and that is what they are waiting so that they can turn everything again upside down. meanwhile, ukrainian trips continue to intensively shell, the dani of people's republic civil infrastructure. a recent video showing a furniture factory engulfed in flames following the attacks. according to local authorities, ukraine fire nearly 400 shells on monday, leaving 4 people dead and 14 others wounded on the don. yes, front lines as russian led force as advanced towards the central city of ill goldar in the republic. archie, his colleague alger bori reports from their firing positions highly un, which i had thought that we are now traveling in the direction of ogle under. this grad missile defense system is ready to hit ukrainian positions in this direction. after russian forces advanced into several strategically important areas you have elected. yeah, i said, but on the he's gotten norwalk to him for mino, new huddle,
9:23 pm

9:24 pm
that while the forces of the dpr in the russian federation of moving towards oglethorpe, grad miss isles are firing, if ukrainian positions located in this direction. no more than a shabby former u. s. president donald trump says the f b, i broke open a safe during a search of his florida home, signify a dramatic escalation in the various prose into the final stages of his presidency . in a late the statement reported across american media. trump referred to the search as a siege. calling it further evidence of the democrat democratic party's efforts to stop him running in the 2024 presidential election among the incidents under investigation. our events connected to january 6 is last year, when trump supporters storm the u. s. capital reports claim that the f, b i search was related to allegations that from allies improperly removed boxes of presidential records from the white house after leaving office,

see we have a laurel view, my, a lot of natural resources in this country. but because the of it corruption in table is a slam where more than a 1000000 people survive on a dollar a day election posters. it's promising change every way that many voters complain it's the usual empty promises from those vying for the top office. so who are the main faces in this race? after we submit and coding, the latest figures, give raina of the leader of the opposition. a clear lead? this is his good for the presidency, and he's supposed to place it in. oh, who kenyatta? opposing him is william wooten, who appeals to the masses of frustrated young people. most of them could just want to get ahead trades on his wags to which the story that he once sold chickens on
