4:01 pm
a feeling that something else how that goals are driving them. it is possible that this whole story is connected with the escalation of sanctions pressure. and it's exactly 20 years since the u. s. coalition invaded afghanistan with the country. now in meltdown family, sarah, having to resort to unthinkable measures when your stomach is empty, you can't think about the dark. sorry about that. i'm forced to sell a few of my kids to feed others. there's no option large mission with y'all. i appreciate you joining me this evening on our tea international versus our boiling gas prices have been reduced to more of a summer after intervention from vladimir putin who said that russia will ramp up exports to europe, addressing the continents energy crisis. on wednesday,

the president added moscow would continue its commitment to ukraine with regards to gas transit. as from yesterday, she has 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, 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 transitive gas through ukraine. although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange, but there is no need to buy any one in a difficult position, including ukraine despite the difficulties in relations. second, there's no need to undermine gas prompts confidence is an absolute, reliable partner in all respects. of that m. f as in statements and the subsequent let up in the gas price search have seen some in the mainstream media changing that

4:07 pm
something that should be decided in europe natural gas has an actually tremendous role to play as a transition shoe. we are here talking now about the traditional fuel mix that we need to move away from and move to greener or energy sources. but there is also a way how we need to bridge this process between a status that is the current status and, and out of future desires status. in the wake of the gas price search. busy spain has said that the european commission should negotiate gas contracts on behalf of all a member states that instead of the present system where individual nations agree contracts. the proposal our government is making is that the commission negotiates on behalf of all 27 member states. what we propose is a strength and co operation. but not everybody is happy with madrid's proposal with critic saying it encroaches on the sovereignty of individual states. alternative

germany party emi p. gonna back belize, this game woodrum. contrary to the eas own current rules, it clearly contravene for article $194.00 of the eel treaties. there is a very bad habit. on the part of the e were institutions themselves, as well as many benefit states to disregard its own goal. they think their national interest justifies a breach of the treaty. they don't hesitate to ask others to disregard the treaty. now as a purely hypothetical scenario, if the treaty didn't dis allied, would i support this proposal? when it depends on the perspective? is it necessarily sensible for a contract to shy its energy supplies with everyone else?
4:09 pm
this pretty little sort of data t, the power to bother you repeat countries with germany generally. so i'm not sure i bought a solution. on the other hand, what is the german government likely to do because it ever has any regard fritz, a country's national interest. it's quite conceivable that the german government will choose to disregard the treaty and do what isn't in its own country's interest . the russian foreign ministry has found a count to request the o. p. c. w. after the u. s. and 44 other countries officially submitted a list of questions to the body. demanding laska give details about the alleged poisoning kremlin critic alex in evolving. russia said several times that the global chemical weapons watchdog is bluntly refusing to cooperate any one who calls on russia to conduct an investigation incorporation with the

a corruption case. we spoke with a russian representative to the o. p. c. w. alexander, she'll get who gave his 1st and information in latest developments. ah, there's a feeling that something else. ah, the goals are driving them judge for yourself to day. i was not allowed to speak for more than an hour. the pretext were different. for example, the absence of the bulgarian representative should have been great in the appeal of 45 countries, i asked the ambassadors of the united states, great britain to brittany not want to hear the answer from russia. there was no desire to listen to us. apparently of the goals being pursued, it is possible that his whole story is connected with the escalation of sanctions pressure. look, ah, we wanted to do a joint investigation and what do you think the technical secretariat began to drag out the whole thing? one of the excuses was that there were no similar incidents from the u. k or the u
4:12 pm
. s. were putting forward a counter request within the same framework and expect that from sweden and the technical secretariat will never less sounds. the same questions that we asked earlier. we close this subject with a request from 45 countries and sent a counter request. the bowl is on this side. ah autos kristin, some nato countries of working with substances cold, navi chunk. i recall the statements of the check president who said in his country, there were laboratories where work is carried out with the substance cold. a tooth for yo, which can be attributed to novi choke the pretty sight admitted that in their potent down laboratory work was carried out with substances from the family of navi choke the united states is the only country that has not freed itself from chemical weapons. 140 peyton's have been developed there for the use of ammunition that contains chemical warfare agents such as no v choke. not
