3:03 pm
1200000. and now even some anti russian media outlets and dancing to wake up to the reality on the ground, as rachel blevins explains the same western media outlets that acted as if the current conflict between russia and ukraine started only this february. are now starting to acknowledge that the ties are much more complicated than they care to explain up until this point. the message has always been that the ukrainian people were against any sort of russian leadership and wanted to clear cut ties between themselves and their neighbor. however, here's cnn's new report waiting and waiting families, pirates possessions, loading them down, whole crossing to the russian occupied territory. as a cnn reporter described, dozens of cars were traveling into russian controlled areas. and the traffic was heavily onesided and was on people who were interviewed claim. they planned to return the possessions family members and even pets they took with them suggested
3:04 pm
otherwise. while the reality may come, as a surprise to some in the west ukrainian soldiers on the ground in the eastern parts of the country have admitted that some residents aren't happy to see them saying they're waiting for the day when russian forces take control. instead with cool, and he's not the only one mother soldiers on the ground claimed residence in eastern ukraine, we're actively helping the russian side by giving them information to see a global i'm to see and that will do with too much pollution. but this doesn't come as a surprise to anyone who knows the region in its history. nearly 40 percent of the people in the dawn bass are ethnically, russian, making them the largest minority in the region. and it's the eastern regions of ukraine, where the majority of the population list russian as their native language have traditionally voted for pro russian parties and saw pro russian rallies after the

key of coo and 2014. meanwhile, the united nation says that nearly $2000000.00 refugees from ukraine have gone to russia since the start of the year. but despite claims for the pentagon earlier this year, that moscow was deporting civilians from ukraine and forcing them to come to russia . some of the residents on the ground tell a different story, roth, with even for those who remain in ukraine as strict curfew is in place and some eastern cities and zelinski secret service has recently stepped up the hunt for anyone the view as a traitor or a russian collaborator, ah,
3:06 pm
in fact zalinski seems to be finding collaborators by the hundreds lately. and last month he announced more than $650.00 criminal treason cases against individuals within his prosecutor's office and the secret service. but as zalinski ramps up his targeting of anyone who speaks the russian language or appears pro russian in any way, he turns the ukrainian government into the very thing that both crimea and don bass originally fled from in 2014 no matter how hard the media has worked to cover up his treatment of the citizens who see the russian forces as bringing an end to the regime that they have lived under for the last 8 years. swedish human rights advocate, marcelo for rhonda didn't only say's millions of russian speaking ukrainians of fleeing from oppression by kiff may ration with the grand age and wish you seeing going to the russian federation
3:07 pm

3:08 pm
a nation that they would regard not that they are their home, the home country. europe's energy policy towards russia is, gets a phrenic bus according to austria and presidential times a job growth speaking to r t. he says, a you is pending to blame for its energy crisis on moscow. instead of admitting that europe, certain functions are to blame. mr. miller is also broke down the situation for local media last week. oh, i see me. don't see boy camper email holmes latoya is shamika burns, the word can ga smith. hello, well, this home denser. yeah, i got my company in a sense of a you cannot do without energy on one hand and then complain about the lack of energy and fear, black out on the other speak of the devil. and the devil shows up that a skis, a freak, and that is what currently characterizes to european elite skis of freer they are
3:09 pm
in favor of sanctions against russia. on the one hand there waging their economic war against russia because of military conflict, that in reality, does not affect europe in any way. and on the other hand, they complain about the reaction to the economic war. namely, the lack of guess, guess is not only used for heating, but guess from russia, which we have received for the last 50 years, is also used to secure the electricity supply. this means that if you want to secure the supply of electricity on the european continent, then we must also an economic sanctions against russia and try to restore a reasonably satisfactory solution for the people through diplomacy. as comes as the you is implementing it to energy emergency plan, according to the measures the blocks numbers on to reduce gas consumption by 15 percent on a voluntary basis until the end of march next year. the goal is hit save at 45000000000 cubic meters of gas creating the option of falling back on reserves in
3:10 pm
case of a shortage. as he contributes a way to moss and explains europe is only just starting to experience the effects of its own sanctions. it seems like a slow motion car crash here in france already. for example, we're seeing public officials using the u engineer gas shortage as an excuse to reduce public services. now, public swimming pools, both near paris and in the south of france, have made news recently when local governments said that they were shutting them down for the rest of the summer to save money. the mare of catherine. yes. which is in the south of france said the high costs now mean that she has to choose between purchases like organic food for kids, school lunches, or the pool. so the pool got the axe during one of the hottest summers on record. so you can see the ball is already rolling on rationing, even in anticipation of a shortage later this year. and we haven't even begun to see where the knock on effects might pop up. now to make matters worse, norway,
3:11 pm
which is otherwise known as europe's battery, produces hydro electric energy that it typically exports to the you and to the u. k . but now it's saying that because it's lacking water because of the dry and heat and now feels that it will be able to step up and help with exports this year. and just when you think that things couldn't possibly get a worse, the financial times is now reporting that european utility companies like frances energy giant, who they f, are sounding the alarm over radioactive, contamination of liquefied natural gas deliveries from britain to the e. u. m. originally sourced from the u. s. same cutter. the problem could to cause pipelines between britain and the e to close. and the new york times is reporting that the looming energy crisis is causing germany to reconsider and nuclear energy. a power source over which berlin has absolutely lambasted paris for maintaining. so i guess better send gretta tomb
3:12 pm
berg over there to yell at them. maybe perhaps she can beat zalinski in a screaming match because really all of this economic and environmental harm, including refusal to fire up the north stream to pipe language less faces just sitting there, gathering dust is being done in the name of ukraine. i say yes, the government rules it out. we face difficult months ahead. but it is clear that we stand firmly on the side of ukraine and we stand behind the sanctions that we agreed together with the european union in the international community. and noticed europeans who are suffering, but also folks in the global south. europe is also apparently dragging along countries like pakistan and bangladesh behind the energy price roller coaster. the fact that emerging countries in south asia, like pakistan, for example, are currently experiencing one power blackout after the other is also a consequence of europe's failed energy policy. in its attempt to free itself from
3:13 pm
its dangerous dependency on russia. record speed, the u as causing massive turbulence on the global energy markets, which hit poor countries particularly hard, but at least europe is united, right? well, maybe not counting those opting out from the gas cuts or poland, which wants the rest of europe to keep their hands off polish gas. russian president vladimir putin may not be quaking in his boots at all this stellar competence, but europeans sure might be as winter approaches. as he mentioned earlier, the use anti russian sanctions had spread an energy crisis beyond europe to regions as far away as south asia. when mass protests have wrapped it in bangladesh, hundreds the demonstrators have taken to the streets of the city at dhaka to cry, foul if the government's failure to curb a 50 percent hike in fuel prices. some of the protesters have said, feel stations on fire. police are on the streets to try and call the unrest. dozens

3:16 pm
election, which is seen a 56 percent turnout on teens policy. i gauged the opinions of some of the voters that i met holding station in kenya around 22000000 people are eligible to vote in these elections with the issues attaching, uncovered, t unemployment and corruption. the main reason as to why that when these, if they make sure one, they call them to test the speedy for you know, account. secondly, we have one for does it lets you him to have in mind that a pretty id would you, we are lacking, but our country has been affected vastly by this a drug called corruption. corruption is what does kill to this country? because you see, we have a laurel view, my, a lot of natural resources in this country, but because the of it corruption antibodies, a plan where more than a 1000000 people survive on a dollar a day election posters,
3:17 pm
the promising change every way that many voters complain it's the usual emptied promises from those vying for the top office. so who are the main faces in this race? to weeks, nick and nicole in the latest figures give rayna. i think the leader of the opposition a clear lead. this is his good for the presidency and he's supported by the house going to place it in, or who kenyatta opposing him is william wooten, who appeals to the masses of frustrated young people. most of them clerk who just want to get ahead. trades on his rags to which the story that he once sold chickens on the side of the road and is to day one of the wealthiest men in the country. but it's not going to be as easy for the new president to solve the issues. now robi, for example, is the largest and most important financial business and transportation had in east
3:18 pm
africa with most of the trade destined for western countries. who had the unmarked kenya, not only as a vital trading partner, but also a source of stability in a volatile region. the race comes at an anxious time with the conflict in ukraine. the pandemic, the worst drought kenya has faced in 14 years and the waste, lurking in the background. we will see how the new president deals with all this on his shoulders. policy or r t nairobi, kenya. we discussed the prospects and ramifications of the election in kenya with 2 local analysts. this is a lecture nisa, going to be a timing point. oh, there can em economy. one because of a 2 main reasons. one is the dead issue. the dead issue has been a child injury close. it closes a lot of taxation, legs will be done. fixation,
3:19 pm
that mixes the cost of business quite hard and you know, pushing model integrate this. okay, this into he's got option and, and what i did the confidence on the growl, the feeling that we these election and every, every top contender, i've instructed, used don't corruption. we are in the country. the lux shots didn't select who spends locks tasks in its structures. it's institutions because all the personalities, all the poor, they're connected in aust. and these election is less of manifest both and more of the people and assisting one of its highest dec situations. the level of appointment in the country has escalated to really serious proportions. and there's just generally out a lot of frustration amongst the city there. so they are very, very high hopes of the incoming government will be able to try and stem the tide
3:20 pm
and improve the condition. so when you look up the manifesto of both a railroad nga and will them, which will they have both promised to address that read bread and butter issues. most of their manifestos are based on the economic issues that are facing the country. so there's a soon as hope later, this to lead, as will be able to work with getting to power, be able to turn around the situation and give kenyans and really some relief because things are very, very dire in the country at the moment. there's outrage from u. s. republicans over the f. b i is weighed on a private with those of ex president donald trump. he says his home was under c h. i have a lead. she tends to retrieve government documents. he kept for himself after leaving the white house parties at new york corresponding caleb open asthma. well, it was a dramatic raid by us law enforcement or the department of justice and f. b. i. agents in florida went to the residence of donald trump at the morrow, largo club,
3:21 pm
and resort, where he is staying, and it appears they went through all of his possessions, or they went through even his personal safe. now. and there's been a huge amount of outrage as the day went on monday. with the announcement of the raid, we saw trump supporters piling out in big numbers to show their support for the former president outside of his residence. and now we have many republican voices speaking up and calling this politically motivated. here's what we've heard. when you have hillary clinton paying foreign agency interfere with an election. people lying on the road repeated, we hunter by doing crack on tape. and what happens, where are the federal agents? you can imagine this when it would have ever happened to a democrat. this is where americans now begin to ask the question. do we have a jew dual justice system in america? is there equal justice under the law? the rate of maryland go is another escalation and the weapon i zation of federal agency against the regimes political opponents. while people i counter biden get
3:22 pm
treated with kid gloves, how the regime is getting another 87 k i r s agents to wield against its adversary's banana republic. now it's important to note that while this was a search warrant that was approved by a judge that was being executed, people are looking on and seeing this as very selective. we're looking at the fact that a, apparently, the reported reason for these raids is somehow that trump was supposedly misusing classified information. however, you'll recall the scandal involving hillary clinton server, which all kinds of classified information was put at risk and she experienced no such raid on her ha, people recall le, jeffrey epstein on the allegations about his activity and bowling miners and prostitution and a sex rang et cetera, than how while he did, he did base prosecution for that. there was no such grade on his home. we do not see a dramatic instance where that is billionaire was, was facing the force of government. and many people are looking at the hunter biden's scan, which mainstream media at 1st dismissed as
3:23 pm
a conspiracy theory. and all of the shady dealings that were revealed by hunter biden's laptop showing all kinds of activities. the president, son, joe biden song, was engaged in and saying, where, where is the justice? i, you recall what cnn's a very own a bryan set look. statler said he had dismissed the laptop scandal as a conspiracy theory. here's what he said. what about hunter hunter? under federal investigation, charges can be come in at any time. this is not just a right wing media store is a real problem for the bindings. well, what do hunter biden? hillary clinton and jeffrey epstein have in common? they were all democrats and apparently of that got them immune from this kind of treatment at the hands of law enforcement. and however, people are looking at the situation with donald and saying this could indeed be politically motivated. people are recalling the recent letter from senator grassley regarding the f b i and how the f b, i guess regarding the revelations of 100 biden laptop,
3:24 pm
even though they turned out to be credible. it wasn't a fault story. this is what senator grassley wrote and he's open letter to the f b i and concerns that i have raised for many years about political considerations infecting the decision, making process at the justice department and f b. i. if these allegations are true and accurate, the justice department and f, b i r, and have been institutionally corrupted to their very core to the point in which the united states congress and the american people will have no confidence in the equal application of the law. it appears that while there is questions being raised, it appears that this was politically motivated that we're hearing from donald trump . the motivation was the fact that he is going to most likely it appears there's many indicators that he's going to run for president. and this is intended to prevent them from running for president against fight in 2024. and donald trump
3:25 pm
sees it as politically motivated aimed at keeping. i'm returning to the white house . many see that this fitting an ongoing powder of the partisan action, the u. s. law enforcement at the federal level 3 palestinians including a senior militant commander being killed off the is waiting for his re to the house in the occupied westbank city of noblesse. as according to the palestinian health ministry. the the idea say the latest class is developed when palestinian riot has 3 stones, an explosive that israeli forces. the palestinian red crescent, save doctors of treated $69.00 gunshot. the victims in the abilene area was at least 4 of them in a critical condition. as comes off a sci fi brought an end to 3 days of armed conflicts between as well and the islamic jihad militant group in ga. he's the aftermath of some of the israeli bombings that have lavished residential neighborhoods and civilian infrastructure.

in garza, israeli officials came the as strikes were and preventing rocket attacks by the islamic jihad group. palestinian officials said that over 600 buildings have been damaged with dozens of civilians killed and hundreds wounded. meanwhile, pro palestinian voices are being increasingly censored on social media activists that slammed facebook instagram and take talk for deleting their posts. since the start of the year, the number of contents take down request submitted by the israeli government has increased by 800 percent. with the vast majority of pro palestinian post on facebook and take took already removed activists crying foul level, what they call biased content policies. we got reaction from social media advocates, mo nash, dia, syncing policy, and voices, and silencing palestinian voices had abandon garza answering our content, is affecting how we can share. our story is how we can document that crime
3:27 pm
violations that people are exposed to on the ground. our narrative is being censored and lined, and this contributes to silencing our voices as to typing us. this has a bigger impact whenever, like we are talking with the international audience. whenever we are talking with a group palestinian audience who are trying to get to know what's happening there on the ground, they can't get the full picture because our, our content is basically sensor. so whenever we are trying to share stories of palestinian and we're cold during those attacks, it's also since it's from the social media companies. and this means that this is like a contributing to sensing go or voices and preventing us from document into human rights violations. that we are exposed to many thanks for your company here on our see international will be back in the next half an hour, but do check out our website, auntie dot com for all the latest news updates and documentary ah,
