ah ah, moscow opens an international terrorism investigation into a suspected attack on the russian german north stream pipeline that says some western media claim the cia warned european countries all the possible attack this from local officials say 6 people are wounded in ukrainian shilling of had a song, it's outcomes after an overwhelming majority of people that voted in favor of joining russia and china slums, washington calling it destructor. international rules that says the us politicians continue to riot beijing on the issue
with the must go to the world. this is our see international mine is peter scott's here with the top stories for in moscow time. the russian prosecutor general's office has opened a foreign terrorism investigation and just suspected tag on the russian german north stream pipeline. and this comes as moscow heads deadlines after the incident with some western news outlets trying to play meds for the gas leak. apparently earlier rejects those claims on point the finger at the us. but sure, problem, again, this is a big problem for us because 1st and foremost, line to the north stream to build with gas systems. parker edge of now this being in for the air for me to bring. if you remember us, president made an early february. you promise to get rid of north spring hill. we
don't know exactly what we see a hysterical you court reaction from pulling as they're thanking us for this. we don't know what that means, either medium with the huge profits from american flyers liquefied natural gas. sure, they are very, very interesting. but he knew in 2 weeks super profits. are we interested in that? no, we're not to it. we have a lot to talk my route in europe. is europe, into germany, the engine of the european economy? are they interested in that piece? are also in a very participation, right. and how can they continue without criminal reaction? came after a form, a polish top diplomat posted a photo of the must have gas leak and said to quote, thank you usa. meanwhile, a us congresswoman suggested that washington's main interest in the ukraine conflict has been securing american profits on energy market. so we didn't had said the cause of the pipeline damage could be enough to sub authority without
suggesting a possible culprits. i predicted back in february this year that you asked, interesting ukraine was about natural gas deals with a parent attack mult stream to i remind should take notice there is no shortage of pipeline capacity for taking gas from russia to western europe, including germany. thank you. usa that sweets was a very suspicious and rushed us. foreign ministry spokeswoman even commented on it, asking whether it was an official admission of a terrorist attack. because at the moment all signed up points in towards the united states. we're also learning now about sightings of american helicopters hovering over that area along the roots of the pipelines a few weeks ago. back in june, americans were boasting about conducting underwater drone experiments in the same area we're, one of the blasts took place. also, most importantly, i would say back in february, you, as president joe biden,
had warned that nordstrom to could become a target. and even the us media are making that connection right now. let's listen . it is true that blowing up north stream does not help flood where he would not do that. why would he? but that doesn't mean that other countries wouldn't consider doing it. they would consider it, and we know they have considered it, because at least one of them has said, so in public, if russia invades that means tanks and troops crossing the, the border of ukraine again, then, or there will be we, there will be no longer a north stream to we, we will bring it into. how will you do that? exactly. since the project and control of the predators within germany's control, i promise you will be able do. and maybe they did. after all, they used to get 40 percent of a gas of from russia. and now we had reduced flows because of western sanctions, technical issues. and now the gas flow has been halted completely. forms in europe
and countries look for alternative sources with america being one of those sources . but of course, almost see here the side of the story. they're more interested in blaming russia, accusing that of an act of aggression. this for us would, of course, means it would be like, shooting itself in the foot. but again, they're more interested in saying that this is all russia faults, and poland actually seems to be their mouth piece lately. let's have a look. this is probably a signal from russia. this shows what means mechanisms, the russians are capable of resorting to in order to further de stabilize europe. now, the head of the european commission said that whoever is responsible, whoever is behind it, will have to pay for it. of course, he didn't, they didn't specify who yet trained presidential advisor already jumped on the bandwagon accused rush of an act of aggression saying that it's trying to create a free winter panic and is asking for more weapons which is also very convenient.
europe is already in the grip. if there's any crisis, how will the damage to the pipelines now affect the people in europe? well, we've seen gas prices in europe skyrocket on these news. on tuesday they increased by 10 percent, but if we compare energy prices to the same time in september 2021, for example, the increased to 100 percent. so consumers are really feeling it right now. and especially now when winter will start, they're very worried that they will not be able to afford to stay just a warm bots. the president of the german energy regulator has said that even though the market situation is tense right now, germany and europe are no longer dependent on nordstrom supplies and there will be just fine. so we'll see when, when for start earlier we spoke about the 50 got are, who's a military journalist, specializing in underwater military tech. and he says that sabotage is the only explanation for what happened. oklahoma,
the thickness of the pipe metal is up to 41 millimeters, really. this is a lot. the soviet t 34 tank had 35 millimeters of armor from above. these pipes also have a concrete protection up to 110 millimeters you. that's pretty serious protection. so these could not have been an accident. this is devlin to the sabotaged. it is absolutely clear who ordered the back in february the american president said that the united states would deal with the north stream. and as for who could actually do this, back in the spring, i made a report about you printing combust swimmers who are trained by their italian colleagues. when this unit space was attacked by russian forces, the pulls took them to the baltic. it wasn't clear up until now. why were they evacuated? they're the seas rather shallow. the average depth is 50 meters come, but swimmer can dive to depth of up to 60 meters. when they tried to blame russia, it causes nothing but laughter. why is it russia?
if russia can just turn off the tap in the united states still feels like a wall john dorm, and the poles and ukrainians most likely did the dirt to work about and trying to cut off europe from russian gas and wants to impose his own more expensive one of his latest incidents with the nod stream pipelines coincides with arbitration procedures on gas transit to europe, between russian gas from an ukraine's company. not the gas and the coal case puts deliveries of the fuel to the you in jeopardy together. these events have led to a new spike in energy prices on the continents with the dutch gas price local benchmark, or by $16.00 euro's reaching, $200.00 euro's per megawatt hour. a rising energy prices have driven tens of thousands onto the streets of the check capitals of protests against the government, domestic and foreign policy rally organized by the public 1st group, so demonstrated that in prague, waiving the checks like as they list features,
many of which describe the country membership in both mater and the you and the 2nd process this month, up to 70000 people see weeks ago. so again, thanks and the energy bill of supply you frame or the meanwhile, over in spain, soaring inflation is forcing more and more people to stand in long queues for free food from non profit organizations. the line to have risen by 30 percent since last month, as many from these spend almost half of the income on food and essentially many are trying to figure out new ways of making savings where possible. like this local photographer, that studies. there are expenses that you didn't pay much attention to before, but now you have to tighten your belt in certain areas, especially though site with energy issues. and for example, i tried to turn the light off to put on the air condition instead,
because this summer it was hot and in winter it will be a bit cold. i'm looking for alternatives to lighting. i'm changing all the lights in the house to lance that consume less. whereas for the shopping least now i spend 100 years more than i used to before. in these conditions, you don't buy fresh meat or fish anymore. you have to look at cheap things. vegetables you have to be more restrained. also, i usually put the washing machine on at night because those are the cheapest hours for electricity. the shower is another important factor in saving. taking the relaxing shower after work has changed to taking a quick shower because gaseous reason the lot. these effects everyone, regardless of age or salary wife is more expensive with the same salary you had before. an uncertain future is coming. salaries are not rising. i don't know what will happen to us 2 years from now, but it doesn't look good at all me. well, ukraine has sheldon number of residential areas in have some. these are some of the pitches showing the aftermath of the inside. local authority said at least 6 people
were wounded as a college and residential building with heads. one person is in a critical condition still and over the city of done yet, the prominent part in hotel was struck and damaged, along with nearby fought cause. as windows was shouted in the attack, no casualties have been reported on ukraine hasn't yet commented on those incidents . ortiz aroma, casa sensors, the support several, 155 millimeter shells frog the sensor of genetics on wednesday morning. actually, it was at 5 am. now the you just saw a one of the craters from the shells. now, as a result, sir. mir by hold. phil was zam edge that bars that were port here were damaged as well. now the generator at this hotel is, are completely destroyed as well. you can see her workers are now doing everything they can in order to restore operation of this hotel. now this hotel itself,
ah houses. so workers from russia houses adjourn. this is actually one of our crews that was at this hotel as well. archie arabic, in fact, thankfully no one was heard during this attack by ukrainian, a nationalist by their hotel rooms were destroyed and they were forced to move from here. now other damages are in a vis a high school right here. you can see the windows have been blown out now this high school was also appalling station during the latest the referendum before the fact that look at how big the hole is in the metal frame. that's how powerful today's blast was. thank god, only one pass and was in duty at the school. at that moment she managed to hide in a bomb shelter. at 6 a. m, i was already at the sight. he saw the damage who will recover from this? i understand why the school was shout voting to place here yesterday, 4000 ballots from here, we're in favor of joining russia. now. the at zach was
a once again at 5 o'clock in the morning. the workers here did everything in order to evacuate the, the residence of this hotel as soon as possible. and of course i spoke to one of them. he told me exactly what happened this morning. bill approval. pickled 1st strike was at 5 am. we rushed to inspect the hotel. we told people to evacuate, and a few minister was the 2nd strike. everyone was escorted to a bomb shelter. thank god, it ended okay. without any casualties. this is yet another crates or a ride in the center of the nest that was formed by another shell fired by the ukrainian military, against civilian since on as peoples of public. once again, we are right in the center of this city very far away from any kind of military positions and what kind of far away from the front line as well. nevertheless,
ukrainian nationalists to choose to continue to terrorize that peaceful civilians if they choose to continue to destroy civilian infrastructure. of course, the results of the referendum have been overwhelmingly in favor of julian, russia. but people are also hoping that set, once they join a russia all their hardships will and as well. and they will be finally able to live in peace from on cost for have arti done as people's republic. but this comes as the vast majority of votes is in the dumbass until ukrainian regions have cast their ballots in favor of joining russia. finer results in the den. yes. republic indicate just over 99 percent votes. it's join russia with it guns, republic show in 98 percent voting in favor in the regions of suffragette and kept song polling results showed 93 and 87 percent respectively. voting in favor of
joining russia. thy is turned out in the polls was in the denounced republic, where over 2000000 people cast their votes. of all point 6000000 voted in little ganske republic, while in both scarce on his upper osha over a 1000000 whence the poles give and his allies have slum to the referendums as illegal and refuse to recognize the results we got to take of international observer in v kate, refer you. no surprise, sir, at all, or especially in the cases of for logan's can the nearest cur, the highest response because they are at war. i was in don barza 2 weeks ago. i lived doh during one week in don. yet sca especially and day and night where oh, graham bombings over all the city and the people there are told come out to lottery lottery means ah, somewhere any time you can die by a bombing didn't know, but you have only to leave to leave her as normally,
as you can, so especially in these sir conditions, people wants to be a part of russia and be part of peace. this comes, as he has said, it would, puts observers from other countries on an international wanted list. earlier we thought to one of them german journalist and author thomas roper who was observing in harrison. and he told us what he saw in general, ukraine tries to avoid the referendum and the election offices might be really targets it's question feeling. and that's why a 4 days they were more by elections with going around with the, with more bio stuff and making that people elect from their homes, from this whole street to avoid big crowds of people. the mood of the people is quite interesting because i was in harrison which was supposed to be for, for russia, the most complicated area. but the heavy shelling of ukraine really changed the mood of the people in the last weeks. they told me this nearly every,
every city. so they came to the, to the election offices, really in groups. and they were quite happy. and i was there before. and they were even afraid to talk them when they were pro russian, because they were afraid the russian could leave and the, the, what the patient from the ukraine inside after that. and now they, everybody of them was searching for a camera. we had this, we were preserve us and we said, can we ask and nearly everybody was ready to talk into the camera and telling we want to russia. we was waiting for it or other said, well, we were against all this. but we seen what ukraine is doing, the shelling our schools, and it's really civil infrastructure. of course, we'll keep you updated on the latest on the events in the dumbass republics. and those are the regions on what the future holds for them. a with washington said to vote on another $12000000000.00 aid package for keir,
which includes military supplies. a recent poll suggests that many americans want their government to do more diplomatically, and the conflicts in ukraine ortiz at caleb open explains tuesday. we have congress putting forward a vote for another, basically, $12300000000.00 to go to ukraine. and at the same time, we have the quincy institute coming forward with a new poll that shows that 49 percent of americans say that biden has not done enough diplomatically to resolve the crisis in ukraine. then 47 percent of americans saying that they feel that they only want more a to ukraine, if it accompanies diplomatic efforts to end the conflict. now, quite a gap here. this is what the vice president of the quincy institute had to say about it. americans recognize what many in washington don't rush is worn. ukraine is more likely to end the negotiating table than on the battlefield. and there was a brewing skepticism of washington approached the war just being heavy on tough
talk, military aid, but light on diplomatic strategy and engagement. this paul seems to indicate that the idea of just handing over another huge package of billions of dollars to ukraine without engaging in efforts to resolve the conflict diplomatically is not something that many americans would go along with many americans just have their concern. so we see the democrats attaching this to the staff gap vending bill. now it's important to note there were funds that were originally allocated to go to deal with coven, monkey pox that we're, we're re allocated to go for ukraine. now either this stop gap spending bill is passed by friday, or else the government shut down. this is the maneuver through which the democratic party can almost force members of congress to vote for this without having substantial debate. there are a lot of concerns about oversight oversight of ukraine. aid is sorely needed. the state and defense departments are handling billions of dollars in ukraine funding,
but neither have permanent inspectors general in place to investigate and prevent abuse of funds. another have been members of congress raised concerns about where these weapons are, handing up without the element in the brain, military cetera. but this maneuver by the democrats is basically a way to prove that having that conversation either this bill passes or the government shuts down, stop gap spending. bill. meanwhile, i, it's important to note that the arms manufacturer, the old military industrial complex, seems quite delighted by this move. as a practical matter, countries that have had to rely on russian equipment are going to find it very difficult to get even basic supplies from russia's defense, industrial base. it is an opportunity, certainly for industry members in the room. the democrats are possibly going to lose control of congress in november. polls showed that the democratic party, the biden administration, is not very popular. so it appears the democrats are trying to rush this through before they lose control of congress. but it's really important to know that the
united states is costly boasting about being a democracy, is constantly putting down other countries alleging that they are not democratic enough somehow. but yet, in america, when it comes to huge amounts of military spending on ukraine and the central focus of u. s. foreign policy, there's a very big gap between what u. s. officials are doing and what the american people want. ah, and over to asia now, where china has lost out of the us calling it's a quote, disruptor of international rules. us over washington's interference, and it's high one straight. you good to go to one. china principal is the prevailing consensus in the international community and the basic norm and international relations. speaking of rules, keeping one's commitment is the most basic rule. if the u. s. cannot even keep its own word. how is it in a position to talk about rules and order a country like that can only become a disruptor of international rules?
without furious response by beijing comes after us, vice president's kamala harris accused china of committing provocations around ty, one or former us secretary of state, my pompeo code on washington to prevent a chinese century china has flexed. it's military and economic might, to coerce and intimidate its neighbors, and most recently, provocations across the taiwan strait. if we want to free 21st century and that the chinese centered century, which is using pink dreams of the all paradigm of blind engagement, must and tensions over taiwan increased as us how speak. and nancy pelosi visited the island last month. china called the move of provocation and responded with military drills around the island. this month, washington approved more than a $1000000000.00 worth of arm sales to the island, which china considers its sovereign territory. then more recently, joe biden said that washington would defend taiwan in case of
a site for the white house later, back, trite on that statement. beijing classified. those latest news is a violation of both his territorial integrity and the one china policy observed by the u. s. vice president of the center for china and globalization big to go and he says, the u. s. does not treat any other country as equals. it is true that the united states is still hollowing out the one china policy of the united states, plays the taiwan card, as if that taiwan cod will enable the united states to add on to the so called the global hegemony. the united states really has a very track record. it does not do with other countries as an equal on an equal basis. and the united states has the largest amount of was it has initiated against the other countries. either things by all, since $991.00, for example, or after 2001 this rec costs can be verified by everyone,
anywhere in the world with whatever ideological twist global. this is the recall the united states has launched a mon also gets more countries than any other country in the world of today. ah, europe, the bank for reconstruction on developments has revised economic forecasts for the next year over rising energy bills due to the soaring prices. european companies are moving their production sites, the united states, which benefits washington, but not europe, which is facing a severe crisis. meanwhile, washington has introduced incentives for manufacturing following the announcements by german, also company, false organ, and the jamie julie company upon door that they are relocating to the united states . american car company tesla has suspended his funds to manufacture batteries in germany. instead, it seeks to take advantage of tax breaks in the u. s. under inflation reduction law
approved by president joe biden. last month. anthony mueller, professor in economics at the brazilian federal university of ga, says that europe is close to a real threat of b industrialization as washington to take advantage of the situation. and the german government itself is responsible for the economic downturn, the skiing, as no smith nots them. it all started with northridge, t, which they didn't once open. then there were the problem with norton and one with the grinning crisis. and then there were the sanctions that they have backed us into a corner or so to speak and paralyzed it. i some, they prepare the kind of a suicide to put it drastically absorbed. well t industrial lation is adder weight in germany. it is, of course, the case that we see the large companies on the want side, global companies for which it's not too difficult to expand their foreign sites because they already have some bare and they are already represented in the united states. and it is not that difficult for them to transfer more out. we're done more
production to lease foreign production facilities, but that is not the heart of the german economy die. the heart of the german economy is the so called middle class. that is where the main quality jobs are, where you can earn very good money, where skilled workers are in demand. oh and the middle class is of course suffering the most and has no way out of sean. you can just move small and medium sized enterprises. you can just move small and medium sized enterprises abroad in one day and close them down. that tear is a very deep hole in the basic structure of the german economy. a whole so deep that even in the future should these energy problem is solved, which is rather unlikely. it cannot be stopped at the thought less the route for now on pitas got to me back again at the top of the hour. the latest news and views . now nazi, i'll see them. ah
ah, the 1st time in history, an entire country's culture has been canceled to the very modern weapon. cancel culture. really desert wonderful language cecile mala. so we thought it one way of fraud here. just me sitting there with the phrase now, particularly refers to canceling russian culture. yet them know what secret of she was, the zip code where your mouth for cure, which will be your, that is, shall i live without that all that much to live separate yolanda he, them,
we what rushes created over the past 1500 years. there's no question, harshly condemned, reviled and reject it. just to remind you that it's to put some media at the will of bramble, there's a lot closer on a whole bunch. thank you said a little short list. joining total condemnation grows daily and now enclosed does de escalate to cascade shostakovich that i need to, you. call it left, but yes, you lost your signal about the time. will you do obama lee? you're not going to do that a little bit more. ah, at this point is almost a near certainty, the regions of ukraine voting to reject cubes. rule will join the russian
federation, and soon moscow will protect these people. as nato's war on russia continues, how things will escalate is anybody's guess. for only one main thing is important for knox, ism internationally speaking to that is that nations, but that's allowed to do anything, all the mazda races, and then you have the mind, the nations who are the slaves americans, brock, obama and others have had a concept of american exceptionalism. international law exist as long as it serves american interest. if it doesn't, it doesn't exist by turning those russians into this danger is boy, man that wants to take over the world. that was a conscious strategy. so some golf out of it, on your own, i not leashed off in zebulon and tablet block. nato said it's
ours. we moved east. the reason us, hey jim, it is so dangerous. is it deny the sovereignty of all the countries? the exceptionalism that america uses and its international war planning is one of the greatest threats to the populations of different nations. if nato disbanded shareholders in united states and elsewhere in lodge obs companies would lose millions and millions or is business and business is good. and that is the reality of what we're facing, which is fashion with .
