11:00 am
ah, his mother, 4th of october from moscow, a bomb shall expose there, reveal shaday of showed dealings of the world rich and powerful, including for my british premier, tony blair and sitting cheque prime minister under bob ish with the united states, named as a leading tax age i say the situation is stabilizing and no one's going to pretend his completely back to normal. wish it was, but he is, is getting it that way. so while officials in the u. k down play the ongoing fuel crisis. they've now deployed the military forces across the country today in the bid to try to ease the ongoing emergency, as many pencils stations remain dry with cues of angry, dr is waiting for supplies, leaked documents, apparently confirm systematic
11:01 am
u. k. meddling in russia with large sums being channelled through the british embassy in moscow, were across that and in this next headline, coming up a warning, some disturbing pictures of the family and friends of a young africa footballer who a rhythmically fell from are playing while trying to flee his country, voice, the grievances, remembering one of the grimmest episodes of the troop withdrawal. the entire afghan nation loved him. he was our hero. no one can feel his place in the team and in our house. ah, oh, good evening from russia. we'll come to our to internationals world news at 6 with may kevin owen, 1st opening a pandora's box and you expose a on tax havens. then as revealed how some of the world's rich and famous try to
11:02 am
hide their wealth. among the names mentioned there of the former british premier tony blair, an incumbent check prime minister andre babich. the lead details, how politicians, businessman and celebrities evade taxes using secretive offshore companies. the pandora paper single that the u. s. 2 is a leading tax haven. donald court a shared more of it with collin bray. 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 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,
11:03 am
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, 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. they're showing that they actually revealed that south dakota has become the new hot spot for tens of millions of dollars that used to be
11:04 am
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 good. 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 a lot of american businessman and big corporate corporate owners evade avoiding. busy 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,
11:05 am
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 might be nothing important our of value to mention about these offshore assets. now we also did hear from whistleblower, edward snowden. he let out a tweet about the report on this leak. so let's take alice, the humorous side of this very serious story is that even after 2 apocalyptic offshore finance law firm leaks, 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
11:06 am
coming weeks, so we're gonna have to keep an eye out for them. the investigation also named somebody ledges to be a full, my cleaner lover of the team of potent, the mother of his children. svetlana, griffin nugget. she's alleged to be the owner of a mona code apartment. get that right for virus off show company. although the relationship with the russian president has never been confirmed me time, the friend of the president also appears in the papers as well, but not mister putin himself. now, as we heard the papers also revealed that the u. s. stay to south dakota's emerged is a major destination for wealthy people to avoid tax. although experts we spoke to said, they're not all surprised by that bit of news. the very thing that the united states criticized switzerland in the past hor, it is now doing the famous numbered accounts. look, the real lesson here is if you allow the distribution of wealth and income to be as
11:07 am
only equal as it now is in the world to day, you create the incentive. and the means for those that the top to continue to accumulate from one generation to another. there's an amazing tax evasion taking place around the world. and there's also a lot of unaccounted, unaccountable capital sloshing around the world. and, 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, i is itself a major tax saving. it's a incorporation laws are among the easiest in the world. so the u. s. is actually our. busy crime participant, and this kind of a really crazy, monstrous, no tax avoidance. right. let me tell you about some usage has come to now this our
11:08 am
a denmark's energy agencies cleared part of the nord stream to gas pipeline, from russia to germany for operations to say these details is coming in a corresponding just getting across it to your correspondent peter oliver paint, so i believe it's green light, but not quite funneled string to what you got. yes, exactly, we're not quite there yet, but this is a step along the way to this gas pipeline eventually being up and running. what has happened is the danish energy agency has given its rubber stamp to the 1st string of the node stream to gas pipeline ad. that means that it is undergone air pre commissioning. it's also bad, it's number of tests carried out on it, and it's passed those tests in the eyes of the danish energy agency. there's still some way to go yet, though, before the pipeline will be open running to its fullest extent. the 2 strings were tied together in the summer of last this year. it was of course, much delay due to sanctions and everything that came with that at all of the
11:09 am
political wranglings they are now in the past. it would seem as we're into this stage of going through the compliance institute, if occasion for the infrastructure project. and ultimately once the 2 strings have been given the approval, they will be able to see gas flow through them. what's gonna happen now with this 1st string that's been approved by the danishes, that they'll fill it up with gas very slowly and gradually to essentially make sure that it takes all of those boxes as well, that it can carry the load that it's supposed to. the 2nd string of nod stream to, well that is currently undergoing its air pre commissioning. you would imagine that once that's gotten begun that then it also goes through the ad this to vacation stages that the 1st strings been going through. eventually, when all of this is connected up, it will as start the working light for this pipeline stretches over 1200 kilometers from russia into germany on a, on the, or the baltic sea coast there. and it could pump as much as 55000000000 cubic
11:10 am
meters of gas into germany every year. that's enough to heat $27000000.00 european homes every year. gas, of course, in high demand across europe at the moment and coming with high prices. lot of people looking to nod stream to, to wealth fill the when it comes to that gas and hopefully, hopefully see some of those bills go down. yeah, peter over or you corresponded. there's a better tell our viewers next us the next door. we're going to, it can come soon enough. this all paperwork thing from germany. let me tell you about it at home, then. across the channel, the whole of europe is on the brink of an energy crisis. sir. gas prices continued . it record eyes surging to over $1200.00 per 1000 cubic meters. and with winter looming, there were concerns of our the blocks managing the crunch shell davinsky has the details. there is a lot of finger pointing going on as the block faces this unprecedented energy
11:11 am
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 towers that follows several months of other rises. the prime minister shall cast excess that 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 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 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 like 40 percent italian government is announced to package
11:12 am
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 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 done is, is last the entire book exposed energy price is currently soaring across the u and
11:13 am
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 ease flatly deny is this. it would, jackson, it says actually this crisis shows that the problem is there 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 that 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. a scratching its head over what to do it 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
11:14 am
neighbors. and increase the supplies of gas to meet those needs, those demands. but what needs to happen for that to take place is the certification of the north stream to pipe. this is a pipe that was completed last month and would see 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. i mean, this is our light. he to discuss this week is 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 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 order to either heat their homes or. ringback feed their families all the while it is
11:15 am
wondering how it will keep the light so on. yeah, i'm recovered to worry about too. while independent journalist loop review told me earlier he expects price is at least to soon be back to normal in his view. and that gnawed stream too, could be playing a key role in that there is no lack of gas in the world. and a good example of it is the fact that the price of gas is not increased by one euro sent into united states over the last few months. while can europe, it has increased by more than a 100 percent over one year, which is of course a lot. so now is the time to support the be the customers, the consumers, the end consumers, to avoid a price hike. now in the winter, but by spring, this will be finished. everybody knows that the easiest is of course to get the gas from russia through an all stream to. and again, there is gas, everywhere in russia now are stopping this gas from being the liver thing is that
11:16 am
we need to finalize all string to an is a matter of months at most now the u. k. yeah, there's a crisis in the balance of petrol stations. they're still running dark, dry and angry drivers forming huge qs to try and get fuel in stock up from today. then the u. k. government is deploying military personnel around the country to help ease the fuel crisis. our correspondence shut, the average dusty reports from london day 10 now of the petrol crisis situation. and the united kingdom is still seeing many cars backed up outside of petrol stations. people waiting hours to fill up that tanks and even the public transportation is being diverted away to avoid all of this, the gridlock things have gotten so bad. now, the minute tree has now been deployed and drafted in to try and get the feel to the petrol station i think is also really important. we can actually call in the
11:17 am
military at a time like face for that extra support to give that confidence and have a misha that's there as a precaution, because as i say, the situation is stabilizing. no one's going to pretend his completely back to normal. i wish it was, but it's getting that way. so the government says that this shortage is easing the problem is get from vassar, the prime minister also reiterating cited javits comments just that the all the being deployed is simply a precautionary measures. now, around 200 military personnel getting involved in this operation that trying to focus on is london on the southeast region. they argue that these are the worst affected for myself. personally, i'm a little bit worried because in my journey on the way to work this morning, my call was flashing red at me, meaning i need to get to a petrol station as soon as possible. but of course, i'm not the only one a tool, millions of people are now affected. in fact, it's such a hot topic that discussing the actual situation is as common as discussing the
11:18 am
weather here in the united kingdom, which goes to show just how many people affected, particularly those people working at the petrol pump stations. if you're going to fuel a creek to cross one minute, one day you're, you're fluffy, nearby taking return does not normally they run a few with each other. i just doesn't get sold because nobody comes in. well, the last 10 days have also be defined by a bit of a blame game on the one hand, gentleness of being attacked, saying that the media is really reporting on a big headlines and then on the individual level as well. people pointing the finger of blame. a directly, those people panic of buying all of this patchwork. but can jonas be blamed for simply reports in the news? no. can the public really be blamed for simply buying depleting?
11:19 am
results is neither seems remotely irrational, especially the crux of all of this is the very fact that a 100 a 1000 laurie drive is how now have now had a mass exodus leaving the united kingdom. there are many reasons full that particularly things like the breakfast with these laurie drive is staying in the e u countries that they are from. so this seems to be a direct result of numerous things, particularly, like breck said, and it doesn't seem that it's going to be a quick fix for the united kingdom house. we're all eyes. 1 my been on america's disastrous withdrawal from afghanistan, but the u. s. military is now facing a revolt from within as its own soldiers speak out against the leadership and the damage done. they say by woke practices. ah,
11:20 am
all those people did die in vain. people are upset because their senior leaders let them down and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability are saying we messed this up. we were taught that the country was able to, that it was founded in 1619 and not 1776. and that whites are inherently evil to i've made that very clear to my own people, but in the light of a hyper politicized environment, i will not tolerate any discrimination of any kind based on politics. this is really about the freedom of the american people, the right to choose your own medical procedures, the right to decide what's going to be injected into your, your body and what's not. those are a natural human right that you know we can take away from people
11:21 am
with you live without international is kevin. oh, any coming up, stick around. we'll tell you about this. the british embassy here in moscow declining to comment tonight on a leak, sag the u. k paid large sums of money to groups in russia will tell you what that's all about after the break. a camera driven by drink and kirsten, those with

ah, so the british embassy here moscow's declining to come in tonight on findings that the u. k. as be massively funding anti government sentiment here in russia after the kremlin that demanded britain explain leaks, documents, apparently confirming london funneled money through the embassy. we have reached out to the british foreign ad home offices, as well as the countries embassy here in moscow sofa, none have responded. he goes down off, breaks down a bit more of the story. couple of documents have been made public including the general outline of activities of the yuki embassy here in moscow, dated years 2019 to 2020. in total, the whole data dump consists of more than a $150.00 pages, and on those pages are well details as to how the u. k. embassy and london by proxy have been trying to sway the public opinion here in russia on some key topics. how they supported certain groups, like for example, the l g
11:24 am
b t community. and they also give the list of people who executed the tasks, who well received funding for it. and even the some journalist and media outlets who also received funding from london. here's how the russian foreign ministry commented on the revelations, the scale of funding and project activities, even at a cursory glance, is simply shocking. for an agent come on. they are children, independent journalists, and activists. for instance, the embassy here has been trying to groom a whole network of what they call independent journalists, while independent. yet still, they were reimbursed for their work by the u. k. taxpayers, pounds. also there's a list of media outlets. we're also, at least in part funded by london, and some of them are already with a tag of a foreign agent here in russia might seem like it's not a big deal. but imagine a similar headline, but with the roles won't swapped. that it was the russian embassy engage in similar activities, but in the u. k. now, the embassy here we reached out for
