in the world corrupted, you need to descend. ah, so join us and the devils will remain in the shallows. ah, ah, the moth is in warns europe against trying to reach carbon neutrality, it rushes expense, and the damage a gas prices in the russian president also blamed europe's preferred method trading, making it vulnerable to the current, surging prices fall within the you itself. all lines of urges, some member states are increasingly seeing read over these determination to go green and sun. i think the santa marine faces potential trial for daring to criticize president by the afghan, pull out despite another officer being hailed a hero, 2 years ago were attacking donald trump 1st pulling the plug. friend
2:01 pm
threatened to cut power supply, said mackay, amid at post greggs route over fishing rights. ah hi there, good evening. thanks for joining me here on auntie international. president putin says that the e, you made a costly mistake when it decided to dish long term gas contracts. he also stressed that brussels preferred method of gas trading overlooks some of its crucial characteristics. that is, it cannot easily be stored like other commodities. mother, interesting statements also came out of a cabinet meeting that fits in health earlier today. i kind of fun. i think it's, donna, was falling this one for us. he joins me in the studio. tricky time. it seems with winter coming and gas prices soaring was president, police have been having to say about this? well, i guess the whole point of this cabinet meeting, at least to a large extent, was to outline stance in this crisis. latimer putting talk to rushes,
2:02 pm
energy minister, and basically gave very clear instruction as to the countries actions and how russia will navigate this well this market crisis, because as of now, you've seen the gas prices on the market and well as of now again, it looks like the winter is going to be very, very costly to the end of the line. european consume him, so the russian president, what he did, he called on the minister to seed through that russia remains a loyal partner and doesn't make things any more difficult and pod than they already are. and that the gas prom rushes will national gas export in company that gas from remains a faithful partner as well and follows the contractual obligations strictly prevalent. as from a shortage to yes, prom believes that it would be more profitable for it to pay a fine to ukraine and increase the gas volume pumping through the new systems. but there's no need for that. there's more pressure in the pipe,
2:03 pm
less c o 2 emissions into the atmosphere. everything turns out cheaper. and at $3000000000.00 a year, it is necessary to fully comply with the contractual obligations for the transit of gas through ukraine. although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange, but there is no need to buy anyone in a difficult position including ukraine despite the difficulties in relations. second has no need to undermine gas prompts confidence is an absolute, reliable partner in all respects. of. so i think maybe understandably, with gas prices rocketing up, some people in the west, the pointing fingers at russia and, and basically suggestion is that they're exploiting as it's getting colder and their price gouging than that. they're trying to just milk. as for all, they can get what to put enough to say brother, or he didn't say anything about that per se. but he, but the fact that he has presented the show that according to the russian officials, according to the russian president, reality could not have been further from well,
2:04 pm
from the this is from this that the truth is very, very different. according to the russian president are well gas from has not only just stuck to its contractual obligations, but in fact it has increased the volume of gas. it is right now pumping to europe through ukraine, and it did not have to do it. there's no obligation on the russian gas exporting giant gas from to do so. so, so far rush, i'd say has been very understanding and very client oriented. if i may say so. but again, of latimer put, has stress that the aren't running a charity here. there was to was bitter, self speculative demand and excitement in europe. you propose stock trading. it can be done, bird, of course, this can and should be done. not in a spot in europe, but on an exchange in st. petersburg. but in general, exchange trading is not very effective because it carries a lot of risks, is not a watch shorts and ties or a car,
2:05 pm
or even oil that can be produced in store anywhere. gas is not sold like that on the market. so stupid, honestly. so the sense i'm getting is her from listening to what it is at the same what you explained is it, you know, russia is a reliable supplier of gas. it stays by the word of its contracts. the problem being, it seems that they're just on in of contract, people haven't contracted into long term gas supplies. so obviously russia is not going to want to be made out to the bud guy here. what can you do with regards the pricing? well, man, you're absolutely right, and the thing is i, the european lawmakers might have shot themselves in the foot here. and, well, conceptually nukes the wallets of the end of the line, consumers of ordinary europeans. so here's, here's the thing about natural gas. it's not oil. you can just, you know, get it one time stored in a barrel until you needed, and then you will access it. no, it doesn't work like that. you can't store natural gas. so what the european
2:06 pm
lawmakers came up with, they decided that they would switch from contractual from contractual trade when they receive a gas steadily throughout the year. at the current market price, they decided that they would be buying the gas of the market and they would be, would be doing so in the summer when the demand is very low. so it's essentially dirt cheap. but they would only ask for the, for gas in physical air, physically receive it in the winter when they, well, obviously need this gas, but what they didn't well add into this equation is the fact that the simple pipeline infrastructure is simply not robust enough. it is too old and dated in ukraine. so gas from, even if it wanted it simply can't squeeze this much natural gas in such a short period of time. so little all make as they were hoping that russia would be able to pack all this gas that you know, a year long supply of gas into, you know,
2:07 pm
the winter months. and it simply doesn't work this way. and of course, the nodes for him to project would have held because the infrastructure is much newer and they can put more pressure into the, into the pipes. but well, nordstrom to has been long opposed for political reasons, including by ukraine and poland. well, with a quote with ukraine, the irony is, well, is beyond comprehension here. so, so far, again, rush has been making these steps increasing the volume. and you know, plat map wouldn't, has been very understanding and he's been saying that, well, we will do everything in our power, but it has to be beneficial to both the buy and the seller. and so it's really unclear as to how many more steps and reciprocated russia will take and is ready to take it. so it's a fascinating situation, especially when in so many countries attack russia throughout the year on different issues that and now they kind of need their help in some way. so well, anyway, very interesting, appreciate it. now that she'll gas prices for some of you,
2:08 pm
missed it in europe, is soaring. i actually reached an alt, i records nearly 6 times what it was in the spring. and it's put the continent on cost for a major energy crunched, laying both internal divisions within the block about brussels, dream policies, or correspondence, or in berlin. pete oliver explains while prices are as high as they are on the commodities markets. this isn't so much going to trickle down to consumers as perhaps these prices are gonna fall upon homeowners from a more domestic home users form a great height to what we've heard from the european commission president ursula found a lion is that she recognizes that there are major problems that, that we're facing right now and problems that are coming down the pipe further along, but says that in the long term, it's renewable energy that are going to keep energy prices low across europe. i think we have to be very clear that the gas prices are skyrocketing and her that the renewables,
2:09 pm
the prices have decreased over the last years. and i stayed up so fast is very clear that with energy in the long term, it is important to invest in renewables. that gives us stable prices and more independence because gas is imported, 90 percent of the gas is important to the european union, the renewables. we are the master without plans being dismissed out of hand by hungary prime minister, victor, or bon, his country just assigned a new deal with russia to import gas into hungry for the next 15 years. victor or bonds blamed these problems on the european commission saying they have far too many restrictions in place. far too much regulation. and that is what's causing the issues when it comes to buying gas. you must change is policy because of partly at least partly the reason why the prices are up is the 4th of the, of the commission. but we have some regulations, otherwise everybody will suffer. the problem for hunger is other the new regulation
2:10 pm
of greenfield, which is an inside expectation for flat owners, owners and cart order, or the e u energy commissioner has warned that prices will most likely continue to rise throughout the winter and won't see any respite until the spring of 2022, just how high prices rise may well come down to something as sickle as the weather . if it's a particularly cold winter, we could well see prices soaring, higher and higher. and what we've also seen though is a number of european countries coming together and saying things have to change france paying grease, the czech republic and romania, all their finance ministers signed a joint statement saying that there needs to be a complete overhaul of the way energy is purchased in europe, that isn't going to be a short term solution though. perhaps in the long term it may change something. it's not gonna change energy builds this coming winter. what we're also seeing is the european union is saying that they're going to investigate claims that russia
2:11 pm
is behind attempts to manipulate the gas price that they've been trying to drive up prices. this is something that's been fundamentally denied by the kremlin, the spokesperson for the russian government saying that russian suppliers are living up to the very letter of contracts that have been signed. we insist that russia is playing no role in what is happening on the european gas market that could not happen. russia has fulfilled and will continue to fulfill to the letter all its obligations on existing contracts. there is one way to get more gas into europe and that's through the nord stream to gas pipeline. that huge infrastructure projects. construction was completed this summer. however, it's still awaiting the green light in terms of all of the certification and approvals from various agencies before it can start providing energy. once that does get the approval that it's needed, while it could provide as much as 55000000000 cubic meters of russian gas to europe every single year,
2:12 pm
that's around enough to power $27000000.00 european homes that are i spoke with german economist and publisher. i co hama about sir synergy crisis basically it is would be perfect for. busy the german and energy policy to change to a green policy, but it wouldn't suit all of the other european partners because they have a completely different thoughts on germany and their energy supply. for example, the french and especially the polish want to keep the right mailing position for germany. they don't want germany to be energy sufficient or energy independent with russian gas. they would like to be to keep the hand on the energy supply for germany. so with the north screen to pipeline, the energy supply would be
2:13 pm
a would be secured. and that's why these european partners don't want us. republicans of accused the military of double stunned. it's over a marine who's facing potential challenges for criticizing the biden administration's pull that from afghanistan, that in stark contrast to another officer who was hailed as a hero, when he stood up to the trump administration. and i'm open takes a closer look at the 2 cases. $2000000.00 from over $27000.00 different donors. that's how strongly people are feeling the case of lieutenant colonel sheller. he's facing potential criminal charges over criticizing commanders over the withdrawal from afghanistan. now his hearing has been delayed until next week, but his family is not very optimistic or we have been told to prepare that it could be a long prison term. sheller was an active duty u. s. marine, whose frustration over the bungled retreat from cobble lead to making videos,
2:14 pm
bashing biden, and the pentagon brass that quickly went viral. 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. i'm not saying we've got to be in the in afghanistan forever, but i am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table and say, hey, it's a bad idea to evacuate bob graham airfield, the strategic berries before we evacuate everyone. i am submitting charges against general mckenzie for his bad assumptions, not because i've been dated, but because the senior leaders need to be held accountable to the same standard as us. he's now accused of breaking for laws, though there are not formal charges yet. now sheller is not the 1st military man to raise a voice about issues. lieutenant colonel alexander vin damon was on active duty when he 1st spoke up against the pentagon. brass, he testified trumps impeachment proceedings. as a pentagon whistleblower,
2:15 pm
he claim the donald trump had made a quid pro quo with the president of ukraine. he was anointed by mainstream media and the democrats as a st. this guy 0, this guy is a patriot. and one of these 2 men, the president and lieutenant colonel whitman, devoted his life to duty, and honor write matters what an extraordinary statement from an immigrant who served this country proudly his entire life. now the answers from the white house quickly turned evasive when they faced some tough questions about parallels person vancover lieutenant colonel alexander vin minute hero. for speaking out against his commander, he even has quite a capital filling uniform. so how is this different, especially since he just said the president welcomed kander and the fife of his military adviser? does the president also see with sheller hero? i dont have all the details on these circumstances. i understand that can be
2:16 pm
frustrating to you. um, but we will work to get you an answer on it. republicans are speaking up saying that they see a double standard if you speak out against the democratic president who get thrown in the brig. but if you are doing something against a republican president, your lord and a hero, this is double standard. lieutenant colonel vinland was celebrated by media while of tenant girls sheller is in prison for demanding accountability on the disastrous withdrawal. both challenged leadership, one was treated as a hero and the other punished. i remember when military leadership wasn't an oxymoron, it's no wonder they can see the obvious coming any more. the best bureau cuts on the absolute worst wolf. i says, of the ones that get promoted and make the decisions. military leaders who criticize donald trump got talk, show appearances and book deals treated almost like heroes. while one who just criticized biden is facing a hearing and a potentially long term spell behind bars. the going to stay in that we c p,
2:17 pm
an exercise here today. it's a very dangerous precedent escort or gets the standard by democrats. first of all that, but also manifested tremendously by the mass media tends to be predominantly, less leaning in you know, very much and pocket a, b, o done a credit card or anything that was an antique trump was hailed. and so it's not surprising anything republican, as the chase of minimum rosa was treated with kid gloves now. and as consequence, he, he gets off scott frame, having no late classified information. the political landscape has certainly evolved from what it was a year ago. democrats are no longer celebrating those with the courage to speak up against those in power. being a hero isn't so much about what you do, but who you do it against?

2:20 pm
oh, we'll come back francis threatening to cut cross chun electricity supplies to the carry over post briggs fishing dispute, shall i do? mosquito reports now from paris on a fight that threatens the window at sorry, opened a series of crucial agreements between the european allies. france could be about to slam the brakes on the relationship with the u. k. as this raw over fishing rights is pretty much including last week, the u. k refused the majority of licenses that came from french, smaller fishing vessels to fish in it's wooded, only approved 12 out of 47. and as a result of that, iris is furious. it's now saying the bilateral agreements that cover everything from security, border control to trade in energy are now under threat because paris says that
2:21 pm
london simply cannot keep its commitments under the brakes. it deal. bruton does not respect its own signature month after month the u. k. presents new conditions and delays given definite if licenses this cannot be tolerated. we know the u. k is facing this unprecedented energy crisis just like pretty much all of the countries across continental europe. and it could be about to get even worse, because francis said that it could in the next few days decide to turn off electricity supplies to the u. k. well, how significant is that? pretty darn significant. according to you, k governments own papers in july of this year, france supplies almost half of the energy for electricity for the u. k. to this really could see the lights being turned out. well, you mean it both view k depends on our energy exports. they think they can live alone while also beating up on your own. and given that it doesn't work the engage
2:22 pm
an aggressive one. upmanship, we negotiate calmly nicely on 9 months. and all shots are not little done and add to this pretty much perfect storm. a threats that are coming directly from the french fishermen themselves. now we know that boss johnson has already warned the u . k. that could be supply issues in the lead up to christmas. that with energy, that's with petro, that also with products in stores and now french fishermen the same. you know, what, if you do not a roof or fishing licenses, we are going to block the ports, will make sure that they'll be no in ports and no exports between europe and the u . k, which really could add to, boris johnson was and those are threats that the u. k. should also take pretty seriously, given that we know that the french one, they like to protest and to they have already been tense stand offs in the last year over this issue over fishing licenses. now the u. k, for its part says look, we've done nothing wrong. in fact, we're keeping to our commitments and we're keeping the agreement over fishing
2:23 pm
licenses. we have granted 98 percent of the license obligations from e u boats to fish in our waters. so we do not accept the we are not a biden by traded cooperation agreement. we have been extremely generous and the french folks in, in, on a small category of boats and claim. and we have behaved, unreasonably, i think is not really a fair reflection of the efforts we have made. france as well as pulling out the big guns with those threats over energy. and bilateral trades has also asked for the european commission to take a much tougher stance when it comes to the u. k. over this and other issues that you commission, though, isn't sort of really wanting to get into the murky waters over at this particular spot. it's saying what it's going to do is to ask the u. k. can explain it's methodology and it will sort of go from there or limp from that. the reality is though, in this pros, bags it will as the issue surrounding that are beginning to bite. there is
2:24 pm
a real threat coming from france at the moment, and it does seem as if forest johnson has some really tough decisions to make. he is essentially caught between the devil and the deep. please say you are their attentions evolving. france on the other side of the world as well after a senior delegation from paris or out in taiwan for an official visit, much to beijing, anger, relations between so on in china, currently other strains for decades. china is taiwan as its own territory and opposes side bay having any diplomatic exchanges with any foreign countries. france, though remains defiant about the visit. french senators, as members of a french state institution, should of course observe this principle and refrain from any form of official contact with the taiwanese authorities. french parliamentarians pretty decide their travel on their conduct. the contentious visit comes to despite china's reese and
2:25 pm
offered to paris for increased cooperation in defense. beijing made the move amid the diplomatic for that cause, by australia's recent rejection of a submarine, deal with france in favor of one with the u. s. and u. k. and before we're meeting between the you leaders on tuesday, president mark on question the reliability of america's protection of europe. we spoke to a professor at the paris school of business. he says that francis relationship with china is at risk. the current china french relation is close to a historic height is through many years of trust and convenience says between the 2 country. once damage, it will take a very long time to repair the relationship. so if france moves one step further to touch the bottom line of the one china principle. by further giving taiwan more form of recognition, he will be a point of no return. there are different invest to introduce scripts. that micron
2:26 pm
is to please. so far he has a fair chance to get elected. if this is a big thing, taiwan issue, backfires, china, in for a huge pain to funds, a macro will be at a big risk for reelection. if child friends touches the one china principal, it definitely anger china and china will not hesitate to suffer legs with price. and that brings you validate them or coming your way in half an hour to imagine picking up a future textbook on the early years of the 21st century. what are the chapters called gun violence school shootings, homelessness 1st,
