ah ah, hidden treasures, the secret financial dealings of hundreds of the world's richest and most powerful people are revealed in the big instead of a lake of offshore data. where the united states itself has emerged as a leading tax haven. also they say with an energy crisis looming over europe and skyrocketing gas prices, each member states point the finger of blame, a brussels green politics, and also russia and fury in austria after an afghan ration chief rate, a 7 year old girl is sentenced to just 10 months behind bars and given therapy and family and friends of a young afghan footballer who fell from a plane while trying to flee his country, voice de grievances remembering one of the cream established outs of the tree with through the entire afghan nation. love to he was our hero. no one can feel his
4:01 am
place in the teen and in our house. ah, i good morning, just going to 11 o'clock in moscow. you watching arty international opening a pandora's box, and you expose a on tax havens has shown how some of the world's richest didn't try to hide their wealth. the league financial data is one of the biggest in history and even reveals high world leaders stash their cash in secretive offshore companies. don't quarter, gave more details to call him back. people definitely were anticipating something as big as what happened in 2016 when the pat, when the panama papers were released. but actually this one hasn't made as much noise. the guardian sure had a click beatty picture of vladimir putin's face right at the front of its article, even though in the pandora papers vladimir putin was not even named. so that's
4:02 am
a bit a bit interesting. but the investigation primarily deals with more or less obscure people. i mean, we have some examples being the king of jordan. so offshore properties, personal properties, the purchase of several theatres, by the general director of russia's channel one he was said to have been a silent partner in this operation. but he's already commented publicly that he hasn't concealed anything about his business dealings in connection to this. one higher profile mentioned though, the ukranian president vladimir zalinski in 2019, he was elected and most enlarged park on his platform of promising to rid the country of corruption. and ukraine is notoriously, hasn't a problem with corruption. and according to this investigation, he actually transferred 25 percent of his stake in a foreign at an offshore company to his personal friend who is now the top presidential advisor. so, so far he hasn't commented on that seems a little bit shady, but no confirmations. usually when we think of tax havens right, i mean,
4:03 am
you think of maybe a financial center like hong kong or some sort of obscure caribbean island. but the pandora papers actually paint a very different picture there, showing that they, they actually revealed that south dakota has become the new hot spot for tens of millions of dollars that used to be in offshore accounts in the caribbean and europe. and this is despite of jo biden's promised to know combat corruption. earlier this year to day i'm issued a national security study memorandum of the fight against corruption to establish competent corruption as a core us national security interest. the united states will lead by example. and in partnership with allies, civil society ended the pro sex as to far this courage of corruption. in fact, delaware, wherein mister biden hales from i've got some pretty good, the tax breaks, the company's them they. so if his big platform is to deal with tax evasion, has many leaders do where the americans on that list? well, it's a good question. they're basically not there. i mean, we hear report after report, obviously about like
4:04 am
a lot of american businessman and big corporate corporate owners, they avoiding taxes. and yet this report for some reason only mentions a couple of very obscure american billionaires that i personally never heard of. and so, yeah, the, the big question is, you know, where are all the big american names? i mean, what about the richest man in the world? jeff bezos, his company, amazon paid 0 dollars and 0 cents and federal income tax. not just in 2020, but also in 201820. 17 eli musk page is also 0 dollars and 0 cents and federal income tax. in 2018 donald trump paid $750.00 back in 2017. so it seems a bit fishy, that there, there might be nothing important or of value to mention about these offshore assets . now we also did hear from whistleblower, edward snowden. he let out a tweet bout the report on this leak. so let's take alice the humor side of this very serious story is that even after 2 apocalyptic offshore finance law firm leaks,
4:05 am
those industries are still compiling vast databases of ruin and still secure them with a posted note mark, do not leak hats off to the source this is just the beginning of these sir reports, and these leaks about these pandora papers. more of them are promised for the coming weeks, so we're gonna have to keep an eye out for them. as we heard there, the usa to south dakota has emerged the new destination for wealthy people to avoid tax lo, experts. we spoke to say that they are not surprised. the very thing that the united states criticized switzerland in the past for it is now doing the famous numbered account. look, the real lesson here is if you will allow the distribution of wealth and income to be as only equal as it now is in the world. today you create the incentive and the means for those that the top to continue to accumulate from one
4:06 am
generation to another. there is an amazing tax evasion taking place around the world. and there's also a lot of unaccounted, unaccountable capital sloshing around the world. you know, using various off shore havens and, and governments tolerate this and, and banks make a lot of money off this. and the u. s. by the way, it is itself a major tax savings. it's a incorporation laws are among the easiest in the world. so the u. s. is actually a crime participant and this kind of a really crazy, monstrous, no tax avoidance that europe is on the brink of an energy crisis. is prices continue to hit record highs on gym and electricity producer even shut down its power plant simply because there was no more coal and with winter looming,
4:07 am
there also shortages to if natural grass at natural gas across u. d. u. well, there's more now and had the block is managing the crunches. charlotte kapinsky, there is a lot of finger pointing going on as the block faces this unprecedented energy crisis. that winter crunch is looming and according to summer, this is a problem that has been years in the making. let's have a look at some of the main issues across europe at the moment. and we'll start here in france, where there has been a price increase this month of 12.6 percent in gas tariffs that follows several months of other rises. the prime minister shall cast excess. they will not be a freeze and they will not be any more increases. but of course, that doesn't mitigate the months of increases that people have already seen on their household bills. then in spain, where the price is they have tripled in the last year. i mean, we know that the spanish government is made emergency measures to try and mitigate
4:08 am
the worst impact on the poor. but small business unions are just saying, this is an impossible situation. coming after the cobit crisis. businesses just cannot take any more. and then in italy, prices are set to so by 40 percent, italian government is announced to package over $3000000000.00 euros to try and aid that. and then in germany, we also heard last week that one power plant had to completely shut up shop. and it's not the 1st time at all to do the same a number of times in september. why? well, because it couldn't get enough co. this crisis when it comes to natural gas, has pushed more people towards buying coal, depleting those stocks as well. so it seems like this is a double whammy. so what's behind this looming catastrophe? well that you cannot agree on that, but some member states see that this is
4:09 am
a problem that he was cause itself because it's pushed too fast too quickly to move to greener energy in at the same time as moved away from fossil fuels. and essentially what it's done is, is last the entire book exposed energy price is currently soaring across the u and putting unprecedented pressure on both energy companies and all our citizens when designing energy and climate policy is we have to ensure their social acceptability . otherwise we risk their failure. well the e u flatly the noise this it would, jackson, it says actually this crisis shows that the problem is that is too much dependence in the u on fossil fuels. and the reality is that the only way to mitigate crises like this in the future is to move harder and faster towards green energy instead of being paralyzed or slowing things down because of the price hike. now, in the energy sector, we should speed things up in the transition to renewable energy. so the affordable renewable energy becomes available for everyone. was the e u,
4:10 am
a scratching its head over what to do. it's also looking potentially for a scapegoat. and some have suggested that russia is to blame for this crisis, saying that it is holding back on natural gas reserves. russia says that's not the case. in fact, russia says it's willing to step up to the hour of need of it to you repeat neighbors. and increase the supplies of gas to meet those needs, those demands. but what needs to happen for that to take place is this month and would c natural gas be able to be delivered directly to germany. but before that can happen, that certification needs to take place. that is something that you find out. some illnesses are likely to discuss this week as they meet to discuss this entire crisis. but the idea that you finance ministers are discussing bread and butter subjects like energy bills and how people are going to pay them really gives you a sense of how this crisis is. and as they scratching their heads, looking for
4:11 am
a solution, there are tens of millions of households who are concerned about what this winter is going to bring. the difficult choices that they will have to make in all we did . so i the heat that homes or feed their families all the while it is wondering how 8 will keep the light so on showing davinsky reporting there. now there's been outrage of what is seen as a lenient sentence for an afghan teenager, he sexually abused to 7 year old austrian girl. he'll spend just 10 months behind bars, m receive therapy after enticing the child into the basement of an apartment block and assaulting her. ah,
4:12 am
what another horrifying incident happened in austria backing ging when 3 afghans writes in killed a 13 year old girl. despite their immediate arrest, one of the suspected kit is did manage to sneak into the u. k. 2 under a foot under a fake name in a boat to refugees and then claimed asylum. as another wave of fleeing, afghans arrives in austria. chance the sebastian curse is taking a tough stance on crimes committed by migrant sand resisting request to, to accept any more. austrian authorities have also said that they will for something to port afghans. he's playful asylum, fail according to you and data for 2020 austria. did have more than 40000 afghan refugees, the 2nd biggest number after gym and we discussed the issue of violence by refugees . and hank jestus is handed down with a panel of guests. most people seeing it's far too lenient because the guy,
4:13 am
even if you spend 10 months in behind bars, he's a huge danger for the public. he has a lot of problems and they cancelled the comp you sold to was in 10 months behind the bar. they said, and he will get psychological treatment after that. she will get it, but he will be at lodge when he's all told to prison. and i don't sing, he will. ready just be cured because he has a few hours, was a psychotherapist, sexual assault and abuse are not excusable. it has to be better prevention. they have to be the steps of education in school, but off grown ups. asthma and i think punishment long way, but punishment alone doesn't test. so we have to have a more holistic attempt and we really have to prevent that these cases happen again. this is of course political, correct argumentation, but it has nothing to do with facts and reality. because it's not
4:14 am
a general problem problem. it's specially byron problem. it's also the sort of people that come, it's not the poor starving rural people coming, but it's people with some cash from the cities. they're mostly comedies, asylum seekers here. and they often are involved in crimes and petty crimes and own countries. if you look at the case of migration, 1st of all, if we don't ask the natal states for example, we don't conduct most likely not all life in syria, people wouldn't have to leave their countries if people come and live in our countries, of course they have to have a good education if we take them and then we have to give them the possibility to work. and of course we have as well, if people can't traumatized from wall of countries with all the political oppression, we have to give them some kind of therapy as well. it's not enough just to give
4:15 am
them some money or there's an integration problem. nice to come. well come, they should really be brought into the middle of society, and that's a long way to go. you see these people, they are 5 to 10 times as many crimes, specially crime is related to women as the average australian citizen. so the problem is not so easy to handle. it's not like we shouldn't instrumental life the case to say it's just the afghan people, all the migrants. i think we should go deeper. one of the green is that the size of that messy evacuation from afghanistan was when a young for paula held from the plain mouth trying to flee. he was seen as one of the countries brightest sporting talons. and a special tournament has been held in his memory. ah
4:16 am
and wary was one of many african. he's trying to flee the country as the plane gained altitude, he fell to his death. ah, the zaki was more than a brother to me retrained together for the last 4 years. god bless him. no one can feel his place in new team and in our house a lot my kid i'm wearing belong to zaki but it's mine now. he was a better footballer than me. we even called him messy. the entire afghan nation loved him. he was our hero. a guy with zacky was one of our best players, a wonderful buddy and a strong forward on his team. today they're playing with outside and we can feel the difference with my son's like he was a national player,
4:17 am
very talented boy. but i never came here before this my 1st time and he's not with us today. i missed him so much. i mean, while the new and says his presence in afghanistan is vital and made what the rockies calling a looming social and economic crisis in the country. that is a deputy explosion inc. a bull killed several people at a funeral, will have the latest from the capital just after the break. ah oh, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed? what will make you feel safer?
4:18 am
isolation for community. are you going the right way, or are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true was is great. in the world corrupted, you need to descend her join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. well, i'll be speaking to guess when the world politics sport business. i'm sure business . i'll see you then. oh, hello again. now, overnight several people were killed in a plastic blue 2nd biggest mosque. the taliban says it has detained. 3 people
4:19 am
allegedly responsible. however, the u. s. foreign policy chief is now insisting that the broke needs a presence in afghanistan to prevent what it phase is a looming social collapse. afghanistan is experiencing a serious humanitarian crisis, and a socio economic collapse is looming, which would be dangerous for afghans to region and international security. so the question is on, if we should have a minimal e u presence on which all member states agree, but when and how we're working on possible options, taking into account the security situation. just to bring home, how dire the situation here in afghanistan, east millions of people here, especially in kabul, heat their homes in the harsh winter months with, with plastic. the entire city stinks of burn plastic in the winter months because wood is precious. oil is expensive. people here have no money to pay for food for
4:20 am
food, never mind healthcare, all, all of materials to burn, to heat their homes with. and the situation is that a wall a, the east coming in international a much of it. many countries are they who age organizations are making it conditional. so they're saying either you meet these obligations, you meet these criteria. you have women in government, we won't give you 8. and given how desperate the humanitarian situation here is that millions on the verge of hunger and of, of the cold of freezing at the taliban has said that essentially these conditional aid office attached about to a black men and that they won't be pressured. now you are my advice to the world neighbors, muslims, and particularly afghans is to leave of janice done to afghans the world cannot build of dentist on no way. we have reached our goal brothers, but it requires its protection. it is not the end. the world is still plotting
4:21 am
against us. the world still tries to impose governments on us under this or that name. they wish for destruction, paralysis and damage of the slammer cameras of, of gaston ball aid has been coming into afghanistan. these the bare minimum needed to stave off calamity for another few weeks, perhaps another few months because the war here east continuing united states and its allies may have withdrawn it. me no longer be them fighting the taliban. but the taliban is bored with isis. it is a war that is intensifying all over the country. we see evidence of that every day . the explosion on sunday it's cobbled 2nd biggest mosque is just the latest estimate that even the most secure sites are a vulnerable we saw in the aftermath of that raise overnight rates carried out by the taliban all over the capitol capital where they were hunting down. i says,
4:22 am
sells isis cake. operative in other areas of the country, we have seen dr. bonds. we have seen bobbins attacks carried out by isis against the taliban. and the, the thing here is this upside from causing all the, the suffering amongst the civilian population. there is also the foreign policy consideration for, for western nations, the taliban, as the devil. they know the devil that they can work with. if reluctantly, i sis may use the humanitarian crisis here in afghanistan. if the taliban is unable to deliver, to recruit more desperate people. and that is what perhaps europe and the united states are essentially trying to avoid. florid gasdio, they're in couple now are cheerier, has closed his air space. the french military plains is around overseas, is between the countries intensifies present, micron seems with added fuel to the fire t with his comments on the out yearian war of independence that was fought against
4:23 am
france. was there an algerian nation before france? colonization? that's to question algeria post 19. 62 is built on a memorial rent that declares france is the whole problem. tensions intensified last week when france reduce the number of these is it grants the citizens of several countries including algeria? em response the north african nation. recall its ambassador to paris on saturday, according to the french president, though algeria has totally rewritten its official history based on its hatred for his country. where we discussed this with historian an ortho gerald horn. and he says that president micron should be more careful with what he says. he has no right to make those comments publicly. he should keep those ideas to himself. it would be as if the leadership and algeria would say that france's ultimately dominated by a clique of billionaires in that democracy in france as
4:24 am
a kind of share. i think that that would be inappropriate comment, but i don't think it would necessarily be appropriate for the jury and leadership to make such a comment. mr. mccall, obviously, as noted as facing a very difficult reelection campaign. he obviously feels that there is a premium and a value to be gained by whipping up anti algerian sentiment. st. algerians comprise a significant portion of the immigrant population in france. the french establishment is still exploiting africa, algeria to its credit, and tried to break away from this exploit at of system. and that's one of the reasons why mister micron backed by the front establishment is now attacking algeria with fennel. growing rental prices in berlin. once again in the headlines, prices have jumped 13 percent in the last 12 months and earlier sparked large scale
4:25 am
protests. housing and equality in the german capital is now seen is one of the major problems that set residents are facing. and it seems, situation is only getting worse. yeah. but he never long since about 2010 rents have been rising constantly. and, and this, despite the fact that they're lean, authorities were not indifferent, but tried to take all possible measures to control their growth. however, the proposed net trends without heating in other additional costs ranges from $14.00 to $19.00 euro, from salinas, more than half of whom are eligible for social housing. these cost becomes prohibitively high and these creeds great difficulties if they want to change their place of residence and find a new apartment and on very well in a non binding referendum. more than half the public support, the expropriation of apartments from large companies according to organizes putting the housing stock in public hands, would help stop the growth of friends there. some german real estate companies,
4:26 am
though, stand against the move, saying that it would be almost impossible to implement. a top candidates in the running to for berlin met has also spoken act against the plan. for me, the she of extra creation is already a red line. i do not want to live in a city that sends the signal, this is where expropriation is taking place. the expropriation debate alone is damaging berlin as a location. we need investment in infrastructure, but we also need effective tenant protection in my opinion. expropriation are not part of the toolkit or the referendum is just the latest attempt to rein in the cities housing market. he came after the overturning of berlin's rent camp that was supposed to freeze prices for nearly all apartments for 5 years. however, the measure was late, a rule to be unconstitutional. burden tenants representative thinks that the rejection of the referendum result, though i lead to the loss of trust that enough to give stephanie's will fight against the communal ization law,
4:27 am
would definitely face lawsuits. but if the berlin senate, the new berlin government did not take into account the real rec friend, and in which more than 50 percent of berlin has voted, in favor of making such a decision than i think the government would lose the trust the voters. i think that the berlin senate will not dare to ignore the results of the popular vote. that is your news rap for this? i hear not international. thanks. he company, we're back again in about 30. ah ah. these are the full people who pulled the trigger. i survive something on survival, wireless ver harness things that i had to face was not having a face. i had a low expectation, a life. i accepted that. i accept the fact that my balance, where we had no fears,
4:28 am
jell change, pre fashion, 4 shots, different stories behind the bullets. a when i was sure seemed wrong when i just don't hold any world yet to shape out disdain because of the african and engagement it was the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look so common ground. oh is your media a reflection of reality in the world transformed what will make you feel safer?
4:29 am
isolation for community. are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true? what is great? in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. my math guys are more of my guy to finance all survival. this is a hedge fund. it's a device used by professional scale. you eggs to earn money. that's right, these hedge funds are completely not accountable, and we're just adding more and more to them. totally. they stabilize that global economy. you need to protect yourself and get inform. watch, guys with
4:30 am
ah, the unique thing about marsh for our lives is that he, the adults are afraid of us. quite frankly. members of congress are very afraid of us. and that's something we know. and we definitely use to our advantage. we're able to get meetings with people who quite literally will never vote in favor of any gun battles. prevention bill. they're afraid to not be with us because i don't want to see what would happen if we were to call them out or not taking our meeting, but a $187.00 total instances. 38 deaths 93 injuries. and then 15 teenagers killed or injured 3 children zeros who love it.
