which is on court. rival, rafael. a dial has also white in arguing that this ongoing court battle is a distraction to the mind game as an open is much more important than, than any player. so if case playing finally ok. if he's not playing then open will be a great open we. so without him that's, that's my point of view. this target isn't over yet. the matter is scheduled to return to the federal court for a final hearing on sunday, on the eve of the australian open. another joke of which is set for the 1st round of the tournament on monday, in jock of which his home country serbia, the president, has given him his full backing. because the curly if you wanted to, by nova jock a veteran winning his 10th australian opened trophy in melbourne, why didn't you deport him immediately? why didn't you tell him that it was impossible for him to get a visa to your country? why do you harassing and not only harass him, but his family and a whole nation? libertarian and proud? is that necessary to win an election?

warfare and in using explosives to carry out acts of sabotage against russia's own proxy forces, wrote the allegation was echoed. ready by the u. s. defense department, we already have in addition, indications russian influence actors are already starting to already starting to fabricate ukrainian provocations that in both state and social media to again try to justify in advance some sort of pretext for incursion. claims to that. russia was behind a cyber attack con, ukrainian government websites that shut them down for a period of time. the words be afraid and fear the worst. we're also projected on several official sites. but any scheduled annual news conference, the russian foreign minister dismissed the allegations and maintain that it was the us and its allies that were stalling the diplomatic process by not responding to
rushes demand that nato membership for ukraine be taken off the table. as you say, we are waiting for the written reaction. we have reasons to believe that our partners have understood the necessity to react quickly precisely and on paper. and they have understood that we are not going to wait forever. but of course, there are plans to drag it on and on. the us senate is continuing to debate imposing sanctions on russia. and while there's bipartisan agreement on the need for strong action, there's disagreement about the details. the bill is not passed. democrats rejected a proposal by republican senator ted cruz to sanction a gas pipeline from russia to germany. probably every single one of us in this chamber agrees that the united states must be strong and confronting potent and his the stabilizing tactics in eastern europe and in ukraine. but my colleagues as my
colleagues made clear this morning, senator cruz his bill in our opinion, is the wrong answer at this time to deter president putin's aggression. the white house insists that sanctions against russia should not impact on allies like germany. walking a tightrope as it attempts to define what form sanctions should take. my kind of ultra 0 washington to meet your garbage is a political analyst for us here thing on deer, a russian state own news media company. he's skeptical about the u. s. claims. little knife as they went, probably agree with allstate, agent many times before. just remember iraq in 2003 and many other instances. there's a very express and full flag that we usually use by conspiracy theory because this is something that you can most rule would disprove. in this situation, the story with a cyber attack again, is very strange because a cyber attack situation where we can just rely on the statement. so all the bring
in government and the brain and come and live and showed himself to be corrupt. so many times before, i mean your correspondence said that there was a message fear the war, but he didn't say that officially. the harker said they were from poland and they were, they can revenge for they actions or ukrainian procedure were nationalists against the 44. again, i would not believe it because hackers can do anything, but unfortunately, the ukrainian government also can they can claim anything they want about be in effect. i mean, why would that mean it's your sports. why would russia, the nice jo, sports of your brain that doesn't make any sense to russia? security service says it's shut down. the ransomware crime group known as are evil . on behalf of the us,
the rarefied cooperation. several members of the group were arrested are even, was behind the hacking of the largest oil pipeline in the u. s. last year. john andrew has the story. the, the scene was not uncommon. russian beliefs and intelligence agents harshly taken down more than a dozen men. all played out on television. the reason was extraordinary. the russian government tells the biding the administration. the operation dismantled. a group of hackers inside russia on behalf of the united states security agents took down, alleged hackers from the ransomware group are evil that over 2 dozen addresses seizing millions of roubles vehicles. and among those arrested alleged ring leader roman muranski appearing and coordinate cage and andre, but of both wanted by the us, the f. b i in november offered a $10000000.00 ransom for information leading to the group. the u. s. blames for
the ransomware attacks that shut down a number of us targets, including the colonial pipeline in may. the colonial pipeline ransomware attack also demonstrate a growing trend of companies and even government agencies being held hostage by malicious cyber actors. these cases demonstrate the broadening scope, scale and sophistication employed by some adversaries that had caused gas shortages along the us atlantic coast route again. sorry, i've been waiting here for 45 minutes just to get the group is also accused of hacking g b. yes. the world's largest meet packing company. us authorities have long believed that there was a tacit agreement between the government of latter mere prudent and hackers that they could target westerners with impunity as long as they didn't act against target within russia. now it's clear if there ever was such an agreement, there are exceptions, whether the anti hacking operation improves us. russian relations in the long term
likely depends on what happens on the russian border with ukraine. john henderson, l g 0, chicago. iran has the highest inflation rates in the world, thornton nearly 60 percent since 2018. and while its new government says improving the economy is still a priority. many struggling or so. 3rd reports from iran. these shopping bags get lighter with each was it as your arm betters with inflation. it is this people that suffered the most valuable, not often enough. prices have gone up so much that we're not able to buy basic things. even buying simple cloth is not affordable for me. i'm not from tehran, but even in my own city prices are an affordable prices of chicken, meas, rice, and so many other foods are increasing. day by day. everywhere in the country is the same. iranians have had to endure sorta inflation rates for decades. and while they may complain, there is very little they can't do. but the annual inflation rate announced in
september was the highest since 1995 at $45.00, a person and the figures hovered around say, mark says down with some food supply cause seeing triple digit increase customers on only wants to soften him. some small shops ought to respond, went out of business, magic by the cells carpets into ron's grand bazaar for 5 years. he says he has witnessed a steady decline in business and is now struggling to survive. either porcelain along the way they're going to hold. another thoughtful compared to last year, prices have kept increasing this year. even 3 times we have had an increase in prices. it's had an impact and our business income has decreased rent, fees have gone up again. my income now is half of last year. how many shops have been shut down? the cause of the highest inflation rate in more than 25 years could be from the mismanagement of the company's economy to, to fall out from the corner widest pandemic. but many would argue it is the creepy
sanctions imposed by washington over iran's nuclear program. that is the real cause of the crisis. in 2015, western powers had agreed to leave some sanctions against iran in exchange for restrictions on his nuclear activities of away. but in 2018, united states under president crops administration pulled out of the deal. and washington imposed additional sections on iran is tat, as ish mandel, iran's president abraham bracy has made reviving the 2015 bill a priority. but 8 rounds of negotiations in vienna have yielded nothing so far. iran wants sanction lifted immediately, and i guarantee that the deal will endure beyond the biden administration before it reduces its uranium enrichment program. do you asked has so far we 1st met at a it had that wrong re, inflation under control is the demand of the people. so we're taking measures to address that. and based on statistics, inflation rates are in a downward trend. it's a good beginning that could lead to a drop in high prices,
but those measures are in having an impact in the neighborhood stores yet. and for most iranians, the struggle to put bread on the table continues. crystals out of that alters era to harass a soon army. as had the pacific nation of tongue after an undersea volcano erupted, it's still unclear. the extent of the damage is spinning. phone lines are down, warnings remain in place for some want fiji vento also and parts of australia as you chappelle has more the hulu, hunger, whom the high puzzle keno in the south pacific ocean about 70 kilometers north of the tongue and capital. nuclear loafer has been active in recent days. it's a russian sending ash more than 20 kilometers into the sky on friday. another option on saturday was so violent, it was seen from space and register 2000 kilometers away and new zealand. it triggered a soon army which hits hunger within 20 minutes. waves crashing a shore on the main island on the topic and violent ash turned skies over the

including solar power and has the largest single wind power facility in africa cut . and so i report the blades of $365.00 turbines rotate on the edge of lake to cana. this wind farm, the largest in africa, is perched on a stretch of rocky desert in north and kenya. yet it is key to the country's plans to have a fully green energy supply by 2030, with a capacity to dispense $310.00 megawatts of low cost power. it will increase energy supply by 30 percent. those who leave and work in masa bit home to the wind firm can't wait to be connected, but some are not happy. it's not already happened. season of clear thought you lot of problems will end telecom. we're told the wheat mit will help us when it comes, but is taking too long to reach us. how sad that is, one of the theory does in pain is still running on generating people here. say they
want to go green and benefit from the wind farm. many are increasingly using solar energy to power. the whole renewable energy from natural sources, including geothermal, weaned solar and hydro electric account for about 90 percent of kenya's electricity needs the country. the electricity company is also diversified by using geothermal, steam for other uses. it's like a direct impact in agriculture because we have the greenhouses, we are growing our hot cutter. we have fish. that is also agriculture. we have drying of crops. if we didn't want to get too large skill farmers, even people who are doing commercial life, we have to feed them adjustment to uh give them a fill. all this makes kenya a global leader in climate change. but some analysts say that in itself may not help you. the developed world does not do better option one is to continue investing in claiming mechanisms for the already polluting industries. option 2 is
to invest a new renewable technology, unclear technologies in africa. i'd make use of the clean millersville africa, that is the cheap, the cheapest option we should sell now, and that's what the wild features. jafar abduct man says. all he wants is a clean and a more reliable pass horse to run his business. catherine saw alta 0 or sabot, kenya. ah. the selves there are, these are the top stories that i talk of. it is back in immigration detention come to his visa was cancelled for a 2nd time. the tennis star will appeal the decision at a hearing on sunday. a day before the australian open begins. sarah clark has more from brisbin. there presented a $268.00 page document stating that he.
