this, i'm joined now by our financial correspondent, jens quarter in new york. so again, we're hearing reports from bloomberg that wall street banks have been briefed on these potential sanctions. what would it mean for wall street if the u. s. does come forward with these penalties itself is there is talk that we are talking here about the toughest, the sanctions against russia in a decade. and in general, disruptions in the global financial markets are never a really good news for wall street or us financial institutions. i mean, one big question a clear is will it even be necessary to start those some sanctions, wall street seems to be a bit hesitant of power. at least the whole conflict has not really shown in the stock price, at least in the us market that, that if you look at the ties between
12:19 am
a wall street russian bang, so russian companies, those types are not that great. so i'm not really certain, even if we see those sanctions, if that will be a big blow to a wall street and us financial institutions. we and this is not the 1st time if that the u. s. would have imposed sanctions on russia. there seems to be a mixed history here of the effectiveness. if this does come to pass, what will the impact be? will they be effective? well, i mean, there probably would be at least a short term impact. and then we would need to see how the russian institutions and government can actually adjuster to vote some sanction. but you've already hinted, added president barack obama, while joe biden was vice president in a 2014 actually already started sanctions against russia. not as deep as the thing
12:20 am
to we were talking about right now, but pretty similar sanctions and those didn't actually not do with a trick. also if you look at to conflict. so the u. s. had for example, with north korea or iran also both sanction did not really quite work. so yeah, that is a beauty one of the pick, chris, since if it really what change so much history a gives us a lesson actually those sanctions have not really worked that greatly and quarter in new york. thanks so much. no argentina has struck a deal to restructure $44500000000.00 and added over to the international monetary funds. the new york caps a week, a frantic negotiation ahead of a 700000000 dollar payment due to the i m f. on friday. the countries president said the debt was quote, on payable and left the country without a present and future argentina's deal with the i. m f came just
12:21 am
hours before a huge debt payment was due. people on the streets of when affairs had been demanding the government not pay as one a 1000 gala. he'd be my dad is an illegitimate and hateful scammer and we cannot pay it. we're saying that old payments should be suspended about and that those billions would that payments be allocated to solving the countries structural problems and whatnot. we're suffering from rise and poverty estie and let and does . and i left rising poverty and surging prices. those are among argentina's current challenges. last year it logged the highest annu inflation rate in the g 20 group of nations at 51 percent. that has coals its currency, the peso to week and significantly against the u. s. dollar. making it even harder to pay back its $40000000000.00 debt to the i m f. now the last minute agreement was welcome use announced by the argentine president himself. have
12:22 am
a rough well up would are. we will have access to new financing precisely because this agreement exists. this understanding anticipated sustaining the economic recovery already initiated. again, it anticipates that there will be no lowering of real costs and that yet langford, there will be investments in public works when the national government the deal has been in the making for months. earlier this week, the i m f expressed its concern we understand that the social and economic situation is challenging, which is why we are adopting a flexible and pragmatic approach. the timing of argentina's latest debt was couldn't be worse, but the country isn't alone. the i m f has warned that emerging and low income countries will face similar challenges making debt payments amid the coven 19 pandemic. so many governments are watching the events in argentina closely. now

other trucking is one of the leading occupations in canada, especially for men. the canadian trucking alliance estimates that only about 15 percent of truckers are unvaccinated. so not all truckers or ordinary canadians are giving the green light to these protests. it's ridiculous. well, we need to be vaccinated. you want to bring it back and forth over the borders. yeah, you want a job just vaccinated to of trade between canada and the u. s happened via trucking according to a trade group, the eastern border transport coalition, supporters of the protest say that limiting any of these drivers could mean food shortages, but government officials call that fear mongering. equally alarming is this the promotion by some elected officials that there is a risk of food shortage,
