9:03 pm
while it's still continues. the people have been forced to live in a bomb shelters without food, water, or electricity. i'm about to visit one of these bomb shelters right now. and the year, the stories of the people that had been forced to live on the ground for nearly a month. people in these bomb shelters and these basements live without food, water. while a tricity has been happening for about a month, so i mean, some friends of mine, i got some bread from canned goods, water for the nearly 7 to people that live in this basement alone. and of course for the kids, we got some chocolate as well. school is just what i shouldn't on the 20th century jersey williams, is it much less obviously jefferson? yeah. docs. vince you got so much sta, oak illness door or dormer york marie viola. shes matuse, she own thought, it was
9:04 pm
a tooth pulled kitchen table. it's just a little swollen, belly believe. but you don't. you're in love with bob, skin delete. what still mom? he does well, we'll practice that. people in the digital opinion of graduation is all over. kilogram of dime, so can will you give a dear listen with nauck? i will go to the book of your long video a more children cuz i will say this is a quite a booth and white glove. so the chicago, the concrete capitol, electric water heater was java total cause of quarters of wither lock ship, all nature in his life. more to see jim when you had julia. all last, qualitative body loom was to the dealership. so be sure to me as i know you all middle the middle, it was very hard on you live sure what he took so that put us wanted to comment on you sounds good. you to one yet of up. so you on each one yet. so what did you me and i could ask, what's that? no, no, you were leslie. if you thought be that nature what it was over you. you did that
9:05 pm
you thought day? sonya does well like you were more go through and why did way there? what barrel the livery to i mean you more than your study at what? i mean, it wasn't said that he was good day and said to, i don't want that rather more at that is new mother. it's not all of them. for him, the who for said the older in his public comments, joe biden seems to have gotten things a little bit mixed up after calling for the ouster of russian president vladimir putin. u. s. leader now says those remarks aren't to be regarded as an official policy, but rather his personal feelings not walk in any back. i'm but i want to make clear, i wasn't then norm or now articulate a policy change, as expressing more outrage that i feel i make no apologies for personal my, my person previously put in spokes person already expressed concerns about biden's rhetoric towards russia and said moscow is closely monitoring his comments. i think
9:06 pm
president the white house made the point last night that quite simply president cannot be empowered to wage war or engage in aggression against ukraine. or anyone else. as you know, and as you've heard of say, repeatedly, we do not have a strategy of regime change in russia or anywhere else for that matter. look, the president had spent the day visiting with ukrainian refugees in the moment. i think that was a principal human reaction to the stories that he has had that day. we have the white house back tracking and us officials backtracking. what sounded like a blatant call for regime change from the u. s. president and the u. s. president is supposed to be the head of state who represents the country and articulate correctly what its foreign policy is. it sounds like the foreign policy of the day is to topple and overthrow. the russian government remove its head of state from power. for god's sake, this man cannot remain power. now,
9:07 pm
it's also important to note that there have been a number of occasions where joe biden as dead things about the russian leader that he, they're rather unclear. right? i mean, he's use very provocative language to describe the russian president and then in some instances, rolled it back or corrected himself. i mean, he's not very articulate when it comes to explaining what the u. s. policy toward russia really is, you know, flatter reporting. you think he's a killer? i do so what price must he pay? the price is going to pay. well, you'll see shortly the present by regret calling bottom killer. know that the president gave a direct answer to a direct question. and you're going to see when you're there so, so you've been there, you're going to see you're going to see women. young people stand on standing, the middle of the from dam tank. the president has been clear. we are not sending us troops to ukraine, and there is change in that position. the,
9:08 pm
you know, the year's work not clear messaging from the president of the united states when it comes to dealing with russia. now at this point, we have many countries around the world that want to bring an end to hostilities in ukraine. they want the situation with fighting and dying, taking place to be brought to an end. they want negotiations to resolve the fighting, bring us the fire, and still it is so many european leaders, including many members of nato, long time us allies are not thrilled about what joe biden said. i would, i wouldn't use this kind of words if we want to do this, we mustn't escalate neither with words nor with actions needed. how help for otherwise was the us president joe biden, seeming to call, seeming over raging change in russia on saturday. but then rowing back in
9:09 pm
washington yesterday, 2nd one, by the way, things coming, not helpful to say something to ro back fixing to say probus reasons. i think we need the escalation, military de escalation and rhetorical direct collation. now if you look at the polls here in united states, joe biden's approval rating is hanging. americans are not happy about the domestic situation, the crumbling infrastructure, the rising price of fuel, the rising price of food, a lot of unrest at home. a lot of folks just not thrilled with how the buy in ministration is doing things. they promised to pick up the pieces from trump and, and correct the errors of his mismanagement of the pandemic that they accused him of. and things have just gotten worse, and a number of americans are wondering if joe biden should perhaps focus on trying to improve the situation domestically than trying to in and had tanza by the flames of international problems around the world by calling for the toppling and overthrow
9:10 pm
of the russian president, so not a lot of clarity coming from washington when it comes to dealing with russia and their response to the conflict authorities from the done. yes, the people's republic have released footage, allegedly showing ukrainian forces shooting and beating russian prisoners of war. now, we won't show you the disturbing video just some heavily redacted slides, as it portrays bound soldiers lying on the ground with multiple bullet wounds to their legs, while others have broken bones visibly. now, the head of russia investigative committee has ordered a thorough inquiry into the matter. ukraine officials give us this comment to be sure to know about it soon. i remind everyone that abusing prisoners of war is a war crime that does not carry amnesty on their international law and does not have an institute of limitations. we are a european army over european country. we treat prisoners according to the geneva convention, no matter what your personal emotional motives may be. in the original footage, you can hear ukrainian soldiers asking if there are officers present and then
9:11 pm
shooting them in the sy. now this is allegedly of course the question is repeated as russian prisoners lie bleeding on the ground. the matter has part condemnation from human rights officials. such treatment of prisoners of war violates protections under the geneva conventions intended to ensure a dignified treatment of captured competence on all sides. they make clear that prisoners of war must be treated humanely in all circumstances and protected against any active violence as well as against intimidation. insults and public curiosity. the condemnation doesn't end with human rights groups. as the footage has provoked a wave of entity among social network users as well. torture of prisoners of war in summary executions are a violation of the geneva convention. not surprising from a country of nazis. took them a while to settle in a new narrative that the russian prisoners of war video as a false flag using crisis actors. they couldn't even have the moral courage to
9:12 pm
condemn it. promise a tribunal everyone would forget in 12 hours and move on. they have to actively manipulate l. the ukrainian army said it's fake, so must be fake. they have no reason to lie, do they? we heard from the human rights a lawyer who believes there's a lack of consistency in how war related abuses are perceived by the international community. ukrainian soldiers are violating the geneva conventions. i mean the truth is in war. they tend to be honored, most seeing the breach as a practical matter. but they are still very much in and enforced. and in fact, you can even go back to the hague convention of 19 o 7, you know, for so for over a century the community of nations is agreed on many things, including that civilians need to be protected during war. and also the prisoners of war have to be treated with respect and decency. sadly, we see it over and over again that when it comes to human rights,
9:13 pm
there is definitely an opportunistic use of the human rights doctrine to try to punish the enemies of the west. and the u. s. while basically ignoring the human rights abuses of our friends, like for example, saudi arabia, how it treats its own people, and how it's treating horribly the people in yemen is just one example. those things tend to be ignored while we highlight the abuses of, of our adversaries and sadly, i don't see that changing any time soon, but we have to fight for that type of consistency. and now human rights is treated . and while the world's attention is still largely focused on the crisis in ukraine, influential countries and humanitarian organizations appear to have turned a blind eye to the destruction in suffering and other war torn areas, such as in yemen and me, and mar, amid concerns that resources are being diverted from those regions that are being you, unequally pulled for you crate ne posley or reports. for weeks now,
9:14 pm
the world's attention has been focused on ukraine's refugees, while they no doubt face a dia, humanitarian crisis. what about the millions of others in the same situation? if we cast so much about people's suffering in ukraine, we should care as much about people in somalia. the kena facet, south sudan, pakistan where the scale of need is high. it's so frustrating that other countries don't get the level of support they're entitled to were struggling because they don't have the same geopolitical element. mainstream media is also to blame. the ukraine crisis dominates the media spotlight in terms of search terms and publish materials. it's caused indignation even among western allies, the humanitarian suffering that we have seen in ukraine, and everyone is talking about it. now. it has been the suffering gopher, lots of countries in this region, 4 years. and nothing happened. actually the war in yemen has been ongoing for maybe 80 years. it's the world's worst humanitarian disaster. and in march the u. n
9:15 pm
announced a fundraiser with a target of $4300000000.00. as the conflict enters its 7th year, millions of people continue to suffer in yemen. we need urgent support to continue our work to save lives. but we also need to address the underlying drivers of the crisis. this will help to make people less vulnerable, build their ability to withstand shocks and give them hope for the future. so how much did the fundraiser make? you guessed it? nowhere near how much is needed. it is a disappointment that we weren't able is yet to get pledges from some we thought we might hear from us is asking for it's 2023 budget to include nearly $700000000.00 for ukraine. this kind of fill activity leads to an alarming prognosis. unless we ring fence the resources that are dedicated to responding to crises in all parts of the world, we risk once hopefully the crisis in ukraine dies down. a huge backfire of other crises that have become much worse and even more difficult to address. while
9:16 pm
suffering cannot and should not be compared and contrasted. this pattern condemns millions of people around the globe to an effective death sentence. meanwhile, the influx of ukrainian refugees entering neighboring you countries is continuing to rise. now these images reportedly show ukrainians. crossing the border into poland. the u. n. has estimated that 3800000 people have flooded the war torn countries since the conflict directed last month. you interior ministers gathered in brussels on monday to discuss a joint policy for dealing with the influx. they agreed to a 10 point plan to help the refugees cope with issues that they are facing in the recipient. countries. arches corresponded are charlie davinsky has more there. awesome, 3800000 who fled ukraine into the european union. and this plan is about how to deal with them in terms of the registration of who arrives in to ensure that
9:17 pm
children are getting access to education. but some of the major points that this plan has been implemented g with includes the concern around criminal networks that could be looking to profit to take advantage of those who have fled the war in that country. the e. now, as a result has activated it's m t trafficking plan. this is impact the french and to administer your head down the noun, raising concerns from information services, saying that they were already starting to notice the presence of criminals who were looking to exploit women and children. and that point was reinforced by the commission and johnson who said that they were also report to aid agencies about suspicious vehicles that have been listened to. what she said already before the war, ukrainian citizens were on the top 5 of citizens being traffic into the european union. so already before the war, there were criminal networks that were specialized in trafficking ukrainian
9:18 pm
citizens. and there unfortunately, they are probably still still active. so and now we have a increasing report or from the you and organizations on the, on the ground, especially in the member states that they, they say that they witness more suspicious cars coming to pick up women and children. that concern about trafficking isn't something just that they use looking at in factor. there was concern raised in the u. k. just a few days ago about the schemes operating there to help your cravings. find a home essentially being described as tinder for sex traffic. as this was 16 refugee 90 trafficking organizations that said the traffic has had already made attempts through that scheme to try and reach out ukrainian women and children. but going back to this meeting in brussels on monday,
9:19 pm
they're also concerns that the roots that have been used by refugees to, to flee. that country could also be used by other criminals, or indeed russian operatives. it was said as your dominant, the french interior minister played down this threat, saying that the e was keeping a close eye on this. and that there was and everything that could be done on the ground to ensure that intelligence lists, those who are on those lists don't actually manage to pass through. and there is another reason for the registration platform. it basically will allow all of this information to shared across the you across the block to make sure that all are pretty much on the same page as to who exactly has come into the you. since that will start it already soaring, energy prices driven up further by sanctions imposed against rochelle. the crane conflict have bolstered concerns about the rising cost of living in europe. when
9:20 pm
u. k. think tank is now warning that around $1300000.00 britons will be pushed into poverty this year because of the skyrocketing expenses. accuse could also be seen outside supermarkets in greece. after reported supply chain disruptions and a rise in demand may be ongoing conflict and ukraine. customers were reportedly allowed to buy a maximum of 3 bags of flour and 3 bottles of cooking, while per person. we spoke with some of those affected by the supermarket shelves are lacking flour and its price has gone up. i remember a month ago the price of flour was $0.80 per kilo, and now it costs $1.00 euros. rents are also going up. the electricity bill is increasing while salaries are going down. all prices have gone up, things are messed up. you cannot buy what you want. as some supermarket shelves are empty. the situation with flower is no better in germany. a loaf of bread may rise in price up to $10.00 euros this year,
9:21 pm
which would be double its current mark that pessimistic forecast was made by a regional farmers association. it also predicted general increase in food prices by 20 to 40 percent, with some products such as rape seed, oil and the popular cooking ingredient disappearing from shells completely. the protests have also rocketed in the french capital. as thousands of truck drivers formed a barricade in protest against skyrocketing fuel prices, they displayed banners honk their horns and demanded to be resignation of the transport minister. one banner read the oil companies are ripping us off and the government is saying the fore we heard from a political analyst who's confident that despite pressure from washington, e leaders are interested in lifting sanctions against russia. it is also an interest of the western government to lift those sanction sooner or later because
9:22 pm
they are suffocating themselves as soon as the voter, the regular citizen recognizes that the price for the sanction had to be paid by the citizen itself. those in government may fear the losses in popularity and remains to be seen. what will happen next winter if the gas supply crisis will have the thought or if it will be deepened by those sanctions? and by the unwillingness of the g 7 countries to pay a gas supplies in roubles. so there is a really tangible and cbs risk for the lower layers of society. if the west moves towards russia and get into really serious negotiation, then there is a better prospect, of course,
9:23 pm
for our economic development. the future of the iran nuclear deal again remains uncertain as us officials say they aren't sure whether they can reach an agreement to restore it. the months long negotiations in vienna are once again on hold, amid reports that the u. s. is unwilling to remove sanctions on iranian military forces. analysts are warning this could lead to increased tensions in the middle east and a further rise and oil prices the previous deal which permitted iran to continue its nuclear program with regular checks by foreign inspectors was abandoned by a former us president donald trump, on the claim that it was too lenient and made concerns that iran could produce atomic weapons. now ron has the world's 4th largest oil reserves. after exiting the deal in 2018, the u. s. heavily clamped down on iranian oil exports. sanctions were later
9:24 pm
extended to other sectors leading to a significant drop in the runs g d p. we spoke with the u. s. political analyst, who says the countries sanctions, policies have hurt regular americans. the united states has been dragging its feet from the beginning of the negotiating process. and it's because this administration is behaving just like trusting in that they want more concessions from iran and they're not going to get it. we already have a deal, and now the united states buy sanctioning so many countries and by having so many conflicts with so many different countries, it has weekend its position against iran. and therefore, iran to day is my stronger in dealing with the united states than i've ever seen in my life. so this,
9:25 pm
this has shown that iran is empowered, it shows that the sanctions regime that the united states as imposed, has not worked. and it's also showing to the russians that the united states is not as strong as the banks. ah, jo biden's, son hunter, may face some questioning in the house of representatives over an infamous laptop that is reportedly his reportedly abandoned in a repair shop and allegedly exposing, shady foreign dealings. that's if the republicans gain control of congress in the upcoming mid term elections. this according to party official, we will subpoena hunter biden. it should concern every american that they did this for the biden family's financial gain, which came at the cost of our national security. now the sharp owner gave 100 biden's a legit hard drive to the f b i and eventually offered copy
9:26 pm
to former trump attorney, rudy giuliani in 2020 right before the u. s. election. juliani tried to use data from the computer to support jo biden's, presidential ambitions. democrats in turn, have claimed that the published materials could have been faked, stolen or leaked by russian intelligence agencies. it is for all these reasons that we write to say that the arrival on the us political scene of e mails purportedly belonging to vice president biden. son hunter has all the classic marks of a russian information operation. the laptop saga has reemerged, amid allegations about us by a weapons labs in ukraine, claims us officials have rejected. that's made reports that biden's emails contain information about funding for a contractor specializing in german research. the company met by oda, allegedly operated in ukraine, and even discussed an issue rather unusual for a scientific research organization. as promised, i prepared the attached memo,
9:27 pm
which provides an overview of metabolic, our engagement in ukraine and how we can potentially leverage our team. net blacks and concepts to assess ukraine's cultural and economic independence from russia and continued integration into western society. political analyst, patrick headings, and says americans wants to see a congressional inquiry into the purported by a labs mid the emerging allegations. it's absolutely incredible. this is one of the companies that hunter biden found. it, i believe in 2009 rosemont seneca was involved in organizing one of the 1st rounds of funding for medic by auto. this is a biotech or a bio surveillance company, which was a major subcontractor for the pentagon funded bio labs. the chain of bio labs, in fact, in ukraine. it's just amazing that this somehow has escaped really not, not just most of the mainstream media, but also congress as well. a lot of americans would probably like to see
9:28 pm
a congressional inquiry now on this, especially since a major world war hangs in the balance in the fact that washington might just sweep this under the rug. a chain of pentagon funded facilities is just incredible . and is it as if congress is in complete denial of this? they're hoping that it'll just disappear, that, but the evidence is absolutely overwhelming. what's even more incredible about this story is what is being reported in the daily mail. and some of the other mainstream sources like the new york posts are actually also reiterating the findings of the russian ministry of defense on this issue as well. so they're all on the same page . this is absolutely extraordinary. the only person that's not on the right page here it seems is, is congress itself. this is a for me, this are, i will be back at about 31 minutes with another full infrastructure to stay with us since our international
9:29 pm
ah ah, well visiting poland, joe biden said aloud, what many in russia have long believed nato eastward expansion has always been about force regime change in russia and ukraine has been at the center of that strategy. when people tell you who they are, believe them with
9:30 pm
i'm african retention. you're watching going underground team, and i will be back soon with a brand new look this wide nato nation a new censorship. but until then, we'll be showing some of your favorite shows a for season so far. time after attention, you're watching a special edition of going underground as today by august sunny by minister him on con, is scheduled to pay a visit to russian president vladimir putin in moscow. the 1st time about his sony premier's visited russia in over 2 decades. this is so gold peacekeeping, russian troops had into the breakaway regions of ukraine on yet can to answer the president putin and the russian parliament a recognized as independent. but can, a full scale will be prevented long.
