"kazakhstan" Discussed on The Crypto Overnighter

"Other crypto related services. A group of U.S. senators wrote a letter to silvergate capital, asking for information about FTX collapse. They say silvergate didn't fully answer their previous questions about handling user funds. Silvergate claimed it couldn't share information due to confidentiality, but the senators don't accept that. The senators wrote a letter, saying that they need more information to understand silver Gates involvement in nefty axis collapse. They say silvergate used the federal home loan bank as a lender, so it's important to know what happened. They asked silvergate for answers in a previous letter, but say the firm didn't give all the important information needed to understand its role in the FTX situation, including if it handled user assets correctly. So what happened is, after FTX is collapse, senators Warren and White House asked the Justice Department to take a look at what happened with FTX. They asked the DoJ to consider charging folks. So in their letter, they gave silvergate until February 13th to respond back, including reporting on their due diligence practices. Shares of silvergate were up 4% in early trading on Tuesday, which sounds great until you realize they're down 88% over the last year. Speaking of FTX, shockwaves from the exchanges collapse are still being felt as far off as Kazakhstan. Now what's happening is Kazakhstan's crypto regulator is proposing new requirements for digital asset exchanges, and these changes include the segregation of customer assets and risk mitigation. They're looking to the example of FTX poor governance as their reasoning. The Astana financial services authority put out their draft enhancements to the digital asset trading facility, crypto exchange licensing framework. They were submitted for public comment on Monday. This was after afsa said there existing rules landscape had revealed contradictions, inefficient provisions, and uncertain definitions. And make no mistake, their focus is on FTX failure, especially the new regulations on segregating customer's funds. The tangled financials between FTX and Alameda won't be allowed under Kazakhstan's new rules. Assets proposed changes also addressed liquidity risk, proper disclosure, and risk of arbitrage. In things have really picked up crypto wise for Kazakhstan. After China put the kibosh on crypto, Kazakhstan took over the second slot as far as Bitcoin hashrate production goes. It got so bad they had to redo the electricity rules to accommodate the influx of new miners. Binance

"Here, encrypted, it's 10 p.m. Pacific time, my name is nicodemus and welcome back to the crypto overnighter, where we take a nightly look at the crypto NFT and metaverse space, and keep in mind nothing in this show should ever be considered financial advice. It's Sunday Night, 10 p.m. on December 18th, 2022. I hope you're well rested because your week starts again tomorrow. And we've got a CDC watch in Kazakhstan, because Kazakhstan's Central Bank plans to introduce a digital currency in stages between 2023 and 2025. The national bank of Kazakhstan recently completed the second round of testing for this currency, which is intended to improve financial inclusion, encourage competition and innovation in the payment industry and increase the country's global competitiveness. The CDC will be integrated with binance's blockchain. Kazakhstan plans to roll out its CDC over the next three years. The pilot study, which focused on offline payments and programmability, suggested involving market participants and infrastructure players in different scenarios and clarified language to be used by the country's regulators. The report emphasized the need for technological improvements, infrastructure preparation, and the development of an operating model and regulatory framework before the CDC can't be introduced. In response to the war torn uncertainties that led many Russians to cross the border into Kazakhstan. The country also announced that it will legalize the conversion of cryptocurrencies to cash. Kazakhstan's president said that if the CDC shows its relevance and security, it will receive full legal recognition. Georgia, a neighboring country of Kazakhstan, is also working on new cryptocurrency regulations in an effort to become a global cryptocurrency hub. You may have heard me ask a number of times why Sam bankman freed is fighting extradition to the United States. Now reportedly, he's being held in a Giga hell hole in the form of Fox hill, 5 to 6 men in a room, no toilet, they did say they got rid of the rats though. So why would he fight to stay in that compared to being in the United States? Well, Sam may appear in court in The Bahamas on December 19th, which would be tomorrow to try and reverse his earlier decision to fight extradition. He is expected to agree to be extradited to the United States where he faces charges related to fraud and money laundering and potentially a whole lot of time in prison. Bankman fried was denied bail on December 13th because of the risk that he might flee. His lawyers said that he does not have a criminal record, but he is depressed and he has trouble sleeping. Much like the victims of his crimes I imagine. I suspect the people who lost everything due to FTX is collapse. They're depressed. They might have trouble sleeping. So those sympathy for me on that score. Now they filed another request for bail on December 15th. If he is convicted, he could go to jail for a 115 years. Mark Cohen is a former federal prosecutor, and he has been hired to defend Sam. Now Cohen is the cofounder of a law firm, and he was a part of the defense team in the Ghislaine Maxwell child trafficking case. Wait, didn't she lose? I might have gone with somebody else. But anyway, like I said, Sam is being held in foxo prison, which is the only prison in The Bahamas. Now according to U.S. State Department report, conditions at Fox hill are harsh, overcrowded, and have poor sanitation and nutrition. Some detainees have also allegedly physically been abused by correctional officers. Now, as I understand it, at least the first night, Sam was held in their medical wing, because he hadn't taken his prescribed medication since he'd been arrested. It seems like The Bahamas was just operating from an abundance of caution. Now, if Sam is extradited to the U.S., that sure frees him up to testify. I think he's going to be busy. Count on him being hugged before both houses of Congress because SB F prosecutors contacted democratic members from the DNC, DCC, and congressman Hakeem Jeffries to get information to help with their investigations. The prosecutors investigating Sam have contacted the top members of the Democratic Party to ask for information about the political donations made by Sam. According to The New York Times, the prosecutors have contacted the DNC, the democratic congressional campaign committee and congressman Hakeem Jeffries as part of their ongoing investigations. The U.S. attorney's office for the southern district of New York sent an email to Mark Elias. Now Mark Elias is an elections lawyer for the Democratic Party. And he was asking for information about donations made by Sam bankman fried. The U.S. attorney's office also sent similar emails to other members of the democratic and Republican parties. On December 12th, the royal Bahamas police arrested Sam at the request of the U.S. government. This arrest occurred just a day before SPF was supposed to testify before Congress. So if Sam gets right to the U.S., you know he's going to be making up that missed appearance. Peckman fried has also been charged with 8 counts of financial and elections fraud, which involved the alleged siphoning of $1.8 billion in customer funds. And so, Sam was the Democrats second largest individual donor, giving $39.8 million. As we reported, the DNC that democratic senatorial campaign and the democratic congressional campaign committees decided to return donations linked to Sam and other FTX investors. These donations were in excess of more than a $1 million. A spokesperson for the DNC confirmed that they will return $815,000 in contributions from Sam since 2020 due to the allegations of potential campaign finance violations. The spokesperson said that the funds will be set aside and returned as soon as they receive direction in the legal proceedings. The democratic senatorial campaign committee and the democratic congressional campaign committee have also said that they will set aside a 103,250 thousand respectively for reimbursement. Sam is also facing issues from the legal side of the American justice system. Because a group of people is suing silvergate bank. They claim that the bank played a significant role in the fraudulent activity at Sam's exchange. The plaintiffs, who include joy Gonzalez of revere, Massachusetts, and others affected by the situation, believe that silvergate bank is responsible for the fraud because it allowed the collapsed exchange and Alameda research to have accounts with the bank. Their argument is that those bank accounts aided and abetted a breach of fiduciary duty. Now this suit, alleges that the bank was aware of the criminal activity due to the many accounts it held for FTX limited, FTX U.S., and Alameda research. A group of senators from both political parties recently requested more information from silvergate bank about its financial health and the management of FTX and Alameda funds. Now Sam is not the only one facing questions about his behavior, leading up to and during the collapse of the exchange. Chair gensler is

Holding the FBI and Twitter Accountable With Miranda Devine

"With Republicans taking over the House of Representatives, how should they handle all this? What would your recommendation be for oversight and, I mean, for holding also the FBI and the people at Twitter accountable. I mean, someone's got to go to jail at some point for this Miranda, right? Well, yeah, but first, first things first, they really have to get the information out there and find out, use the power that they have to look in places that we can't look at with their subpoena power with their ability to look into treasury files and follow the money. So that's crucial following the money. And I think they seem to be doing all the right things for one thing, James comer is making it crystal clear that this is not an investigation about Hunter Biden. It's about Joe Biden. And the reason that's so important is that, you know, all the millions of dollars that flowed into Biden family coffers during Joe's vice presidency from China from Russia from Ukraine from Kazakhstan. Have they compromised? Has that money compromised the president, Joe Biden now, you know, that's a really important question, particularly since Joe Biden has continually denied that he knew anything about his son or his brothers overseas business dealings. He met with at least a dozen of Hunter Biden's overseas business partners, and he met them in Beijing. He met them in Mexico. He met them in Washington, D.C. at that dinner I told you about he invited some to his residence, the vice presidential residence in Washington, D.C., to The White House. So there's a lot of evidence, not just from the laptop, but from tidy bubble linsky, from other of Hunter Biden's former partners who are all not feeling very happy about the way they've been treated.

"Had the same team. It was Tommy on a bitch and storm Sanders. They were down gavril over, but storm Sanders had a great way of mertens last year. In fact, all of the players who were on court all were there last year. So it's good to see that they all got picked and they're all still performing well because they spoke about team spirit. I think it was Tommy novich speak about team spirit in their press conference. And it is, I think, a factor. And you can certainly see that I think in the Australian team because there is that continuity, there is that consistency. They know each other's game and they really are kind of there as a group and as a team. I love seeing you know, I love seeing that and I think that's what I think is great actually about these team these team events and seeing those, all those individuals come together. Yeah, and I think it's great for Tom a bitch after the season that she's had a breakout season career high ranking, two grandson called finals. And she's playing great tennis. I mean, a 6 one 6 two. She had a really tough match last year about against of it. And she wasn't the number one in the way that she is now for Australia. So be able to come out and have a bit of a statement win like this, I think is something that's really important and representative her season and that's great in storm. Not the best singles experience so far this year, but put her in an Australian Jersey and I know because they don't have because gavrilova is injured. And so storm Sanders was on double duty for Australia and we were sort of thinking, you know, is she the secret weapon of Australia because she had a very good win against because I would have said kuzmova is the better singles would have the edge. We have the better singles player, but then she did and I was a little bit surprising she lost in the doubles. But certainly for me, if Australia are going to perform well in this tournament, I think it certainly helps if storm Sanders is firing on a singles court, which for me was probably the biggest for me is the biggest question I think going forward for them as a team. I think we learned last year the number two singles is so important and getting that right and picking the right players for that. The number one singles, there's not really much you can do about that if you're the number one ranked player that you're going to play each other. So we actually had one of our best, if not her best season. It was her best season, yeah, so I think that makes sense of a match up. So it's the one where you can sometimes play around with it a bit more is that number two singles. So good decision for Melissa Muller. She really back storm. There are many storm jokes that were made from the very, very loud, no person. And no Sam Stosur. Her 19th year. Representing a country. All those devastated, not made it out onto the doubles court, but it is crazy. 19th, 19th year, it just shows I think the camaraderie they have that place just want to stay involved as long as possible and to have someone with the experience of Samsung's new team is probably a very good even if maybe she's not going to get onto the court has this wealth of experience to help. Ida played her today. Oh, really? She's had some great double success. Who would you have picked put him with? Storm, a 100%. I think Adam Perez was the weak link unquote today, but interesting. I was going to say, shall we look ahead to tomorrow's action? Yeah, yeah, absolutely. I mean, we do have jam packed. I know, because we do have court one, we do have court both courts. We have four times. The velodrome court. I know it's called court one. I'm just going to call it the velodrome court, and then we've got your bike. So we cycle to the earth. Oh my God, shall we? A warm down. Yes. Yes, so on center court tomorrow, we've got Switzerland versus Italy and then we've got USA versus Poland and on court one we've got Slovakia versus Belgium, Spain versus Kazakhstan. So quite a quick turnaround for Kazakhstan, probably why right back in Prescott, make it quick. But yeah, where are you where your eyes looking to tomorrow? Are you Trevor sand type? Bench. Well, I think I'm going to split my time. I think I will be on center court for the morning match and then all eyes would be on court one. Danielle. I have to say it because I need to know how GB is going to do. Because I also need to get that question in to write a cleaner, which I didn't manage to get into play about how the doubles play how disappointed is she about not playing with ever radical. It's like masterclass. But having said that, I think I will be an evening session just running between the two going from the USA, if Taylor towns is on a call, I'm going to be there, we'll have to see, but where are you going to be Joel? Well, I think for me the big question on everyone's lips is a Lee's mertens going to turn up for Belgium. Where is she? Is she on a flight at the moment? Is she? I think she's I think she might be on a fly. Where is she going to be on double duty? We need a double duty. Because yeah, she was in the WTA end of season finals final in the doubles defeated kojika. The number one yes I know. And it's tiebreak. Caught me by surprise, but she'll be riding on it on a massive high, but I'll be very curious to see how much she is used given, yeah, the very, very quick turnaround. I mean, coco golf, I think, has already made that trip. So she's voted as well. She said that she'd voted in the midterms. So she's been very busy. So I'm curious to see these players who are jumping from Fort Worth, two Glasgow jet lag watch. Will any of them get out tomorrow? Will they play tomorrow or are they just going to be making up numbers which seems to be the most popular phrase on the podcast at the moment? We've learned not to use it. But we're not going to lose that again, but for me, I think that's what I'm sort of interested in, but I think Switzerland, Italy, we've got some great singles, ties to look forward to and some great action to look forward to as well. So we are going to be back tomorrow for day two. We're going to be wrapping up as always all the action. So I hope you can join us for that. But we are going to end this catch up on day one of the Billie Jean King cup finals and I hope you can join us for our day to catch up which will be out on Thursday, the 10th of November we're going to be releasing it in the morning. We will record the night before, but we will edit and get it up in the morning. I am not that nocturnal, but I hope you can join us for that, but in the meantime, it's goodbye from Chris. Goodbye. And it's goodbye for myself. We'll see you again soon. A cast powers the world's best podcast. Here's a show that we recommend. Living in America today often feels like living in a movie, mash up a Blade Runner, a clockwork orange, and idiocracy. The pandemic,

"Out there to win and for bonnet and nickels to get that done in straight sets. The level that they showed. I think the chemistry that they showed really kind of helped with their positioning or core. I was really impressed specifically with the transition from the back of the court to the front of the court. I think for me that really gave them the edge and it might have even taken right back and Dan Alina by surprise. I can't imagine they would have known much about the pair, but certainly by the end of it, they were left with a lot of questions to answer. Yeah, and we put the question to anky of a thong afterword in terms of selection for this match. The question that we had was around, you know, there's been a lot of focus on Davis Cup. We've seen it and heard a lot from Dan Evans about the fact that he does think that top singles players are at times better suited and should be playing in those doubles rubbers. And so what was really interesting was when I asked the question to Anne today that she did say that it is a case by case basis, but today they always knew they were going to put Barnett and Nichols in this one because they thought Robert kina and Alina, they had not seen much of them, you know? They're kind of an unknown quantity to them and it felt like putting a different sort of player, a double specialist, served they haven't had a look at practicing returning, because by the end of that rabbit kina match, it was pretty dialed into Harriet's darts game. And I think the surprise package proved to be really important, especially in straight sets. It's so important when it comes to getting that rubber. I mean, it's interesting to talk about because they are double specialists and as a result of that, you have to take both of them on and they brought were brought in very last 6 days ago. 6 days after the carnival dropped out. If that hadn't happened, I mean, the point of getting to is a doubles specialist in this format. Are they a bit of a luxury? Because of that and you might want to prefer having a single player. And as a result of that, it feels like maybe the best, a lot of teams can hope for is one double specialist with one good singles player. We're actually, you know, we've seen today actually having two double specialists really can pay your dues on the court. I do agree. I think last year we saw an awful lot of strange combinations, which didn't necessarily work, and I think when you do have those players who don't pay doubles, we can work out like rubber keynote. It's surprising that she played this match for some people might think it's a little wonder tie, but she needs the doubles practice because these two have not played together before. So I think having the luxury of players who don't have to have as much court time as possible who already know which other going to do means in those clutch moments, they've been there before, they don't have to have any confusion and a couple of times we did see players slightly surprised by some of the moves people made. Because you don't have that, it's almost they can be an autopilot for certain moves and patterns of play that they have. Yeah. Yeah, exactly exactly. And we'll get on to the singles results because although it was a very good win for barn in Nichols and they were absolutely chuffed to bits and so they should be it was disappointment in the singles for the Brits, Katie boulter and Harriet dart losing Walter lost in three sets to Yulia Putin sever. That was the first time four 6 6 three 6 two two ten and then ride back in a beat Harriet dart 6 one 6 four. I mean, let's start with right back on it because she was on double duty. She played singles and doubles and she wanted to get to she wanted to get to bed as quick as possible did she. She was very clear in the press conference afterwards she was like sushi sat down she was like make it make it quick and quick it was. It was almost as quick as first time. Well yes, I mean the ride back in the dark match. It's a hard matchup for Harry dart. You felt like she was, I think in the press conference after she said she felt she played she did play well. She did play well. But at the same time, it was very for ryback in her, she was able to just handle what was being thrown at her and, you know, for me, I think I was speaking to you whilst this match was going on and I can see how Harriet dart and put a really good performance together against someone like a Daria kasena when it isn't necessarily a power game and it's more on a variety and moving your player across the across the core and you're getting into these kind of extended rallies but against the player like right back in a dark at times I feel like overwhelmed by the power and the aggression that ride back in a behold and yes there are times when I'm forced errors do creep into right back in this game and that that is an opportunity for our opponent but I certainly felt with this performance today it was more like the Wimbledon champion I think that we saw in those two weeks in the summer. Yeah, I think that's completely fair. I think Harry made it clear in price to gently spread a bad match at all. She was hit off the court in the first set, robina started very quickly. She was hitting winners for fun. And then I'd say in the second set, and did go up a break and she said that she played like dark paid well, but she did have a loss of concentration and I would say the 6 four was slightly generous to Dar because if ribena had kept that going, it would have been a lot quicker, but having said that, if a couple of points here in there, it's very easy to see how a big hitter, if you go off the boil, it can go with the boil quite quickly. So at times in that second set, we thought maybe we would go to be a bit closer. Yeah. Yeah, there was like a mini, it was a mini fightback, wasn't it? Yeah, definitely. Did you definitely did herself justice? But it was the first match of the day was definitely more of a more of a fight. I think, yeah, I think if we're looking back on that time and where there could have been an opportunity for GB to win the tie, we needed to get off on the right foot. And to an extent, you know, we did kitty bolter had a great first set, winning it 6 four against potential but then participants sort of realtor in, balta talked about in her press conference that Putin had changed her tactics and actually she was paying to have advantages a little bit more in that first set before changing it up and it almost felt a little bit like bolter wasn't able to adapt or really know what to do and as a result kind of putins of it took over, but talking about that first set there. I mean, to me, I was like, where has this Katie ball team? Because we see her and to me, she is very much a big game player.

"Australia seeks the lucky year. Great Britain succumbed to Kazakhstan and tennis weekly against a press conference shout out. Chris today is the 8th of November and we are here to catch up on day one of the Billie Jean King cup finals in Glasgow. We've had two fantastic ties today, Australia versus Slovakia in the day session and we've just got back from Kazakhstan versus Great Britain. I know I've just said that we are recording on the 7th November, but we're going to be recording on the 7th and 8th of November because I feel like as always like Prague last year, Billie Jean King cup, it always goes late, matches always go long and yeah, we've had a pretty full on day, haven't we? It has been all go from 10 a.m. until the last leaving of the media bar set at 11 p.m.. It's been 11 hours of tennis. I know. And it turns journalism. It's unbelievable. I know, we've had some great seats, we have some great matches, singles, doubles. I mean, of course, we were in Prague last year for the event and I was really curious to see, you know, first time in Glasgow, great for us, you know, cheeky little cheeky little fight up from London, but how is it? What were the kind of first impressions before we get into the matches or come first impressions walking into the arena? How did it compare for you to a problem? I'll start with not the cheekiest flight from Copenhagen to Edinburgh and then coach transfer to Glasgow. So I can not say that it was the easiest, but in terms of getting paid to try saying that to the people who've come from Fort Worth to Glasgow. And I think some Australians might have been there all the way from Australia today, so I think I should not be complaining, but we had a simple transfer over. I was very impressed with the nature of the setup this year. I think the biggest difference for me is that one and Santa Claus you can walk between them, they're very close, the fan experience is very much together and last year we were denied access to court one. We didn't I didn't even know where caught one was to be honest. It was like, it was like across the road, you needed a separate ticket. Yeah, it was all very confusing, whereas here, it's literally it's a little bit for me like the Australian open like the rod laver and I think it's Margaret court or high center. Just across the galley, aren't they? Yeah, I really like that. I like the fact that we were able to have a little peek, although caught one was on action today. We did see some of the teams warming up and it's actually a velodrome, which they've adapted. It's really cool. I didn't realize that, but it's quite an interesting tennis video. I can't wait. We're going to see some tennis proper tennis on there tomorrow, but it wasn't in action today, but to see it yet, inside velodromes, really, really unique setup, isn't it? Super unique and I think it would be a bit of a challenge for us going between both. I think we'll have to maybe we'll split up tomorrow. It could be the case that you take Belgium's Slovakia and I'll take a week. Are we drawing lots of that or are you a heart set on one or the other? I need to see bench trevisan. That is an absolute must for me. You kept talking to me earlier or we kept debating, didn't we about Trevor San trevisan getting to the semifinals of the writings of our garage after making a quantum final before? I think some people unfairly brand her is she the worst semifinal was ever semifinalist. Thank you but you might have called her that for the quarterfinal previously, so you probably have to stick to your word on that one, but I'm sure other people are looking for that. Exactly. Exactly. But I mean, we did have, we did have tennis today and we're going to get on to the first time Australia versus Slovakia in a bit, but we're, of course, we've got to start with the time we've just had Great Britain versus Kazakhstan. Now unfortunately, Kazakhstan did come out winners, they won two one, they won both of the singles matches, so they were already kind of tuna up. The atmosphere, yeah, it was a little bit kind of muted, not from the kazakhstanis, but from everyone else, but it was slightly kind of disappointed kind of way to, I think, kick off GB getting there, but before we get into that, what was great was, you know, we've been in the press conferences. We've been asking all the players different questions about their matches. The podcast got a shout out. It did indeed. This was unprecedented in press conference. I must say, but we were in the final process. After the doubles at finish of the GB versus Kazakhstan match, and we put a question to the girls who just played Alicia Barnett and Olivia Nichols and Olivia responded to the question before we before answering the question fully saying could you just give her best friend Amy listen to the podcast and just wants to give her a shout out. So Amy, this is your show. I'm hoping you're listening. Exactly. Why is this is all for nothing, but yeah, extra special shout out for you. Yeah, it gave us a warm fuzzy feeling when we were asking the questions. And to be fair, I mean, let's start with Nichols on it because they would have definitely had a warm fuzzy feeling walking off the court. I mean, they probably would have had a warm and fuzzy feeling walking onto the court because it was their Davis Cup, Davis Cup, Billie Jean King. Her name was on the trophy. Billie Jean king cup debut, they've had a cracking season. They got to the final in Leon, the two 50 earlier on. I think that was their WTA Tour debut. They got to the final. They've only been playing for like less than a couple of years. So for them to come to come onto the court, face right back in a Wimbledon champion and danilova, who has come from who is one of the players who's come from Fort Worth. So a very handy doubles player to get that win in straight sets. You know, that's a dream debut, isn't it? I mean, it really is. I think the only thing that kind of takes away from the dream debut is obviously the fact that it was a dead rubber in this tie, but the nature of the competition is that robbers do come into it in terms of let's hope it gets interesting, otherwise that's something you have to talk about in terms of the Brits might be out before they play the next match. But in terms of this match, I was very impressed. I think it really did make the point that players who know what each other are going to do, that really helps in these clutch situations. And I think we've seen that before where you put two singles players together where things spend a doubles player and they don't know exactly what they're going to do and obviously when you look at the talent level on the court, taking nothing away from Alyssia and Olivia, but we've got a top world number 11 in doubles and we've got the Wimbledon champion. You'd think that the talent from them would get them through it and really profession really, really great doubles and some of the volume was spectacular. I think they rose to the occasion, amazingly well. They handled it well. They were pumped up and I think that had that tie the best atmosphere of any of them today. And it was a dead rubber. I think what was interesting was they were demonstrating with the crowd to get them involved and they were feeding off that energy. I think a little bit more so than we saw. I think from Harriet dart and Katie boulter, I don't think there was necessarily as much maybe interaction with the crowd and you can tell that they were absolutely kind of reveling in this situation and, you know, for me, as you said, these although in theory was a Deb robber technically GB had already lost the tie, it could come down to it and the Kazakhstan team went

In this week's religion roundup, pastors offer a mixed response to Republican transports of migrants to Democratic-run juridictions, while a faith-led group seeks missing migrants in the US-Mexico desert. And Pope Francis calls for peace in Ukraine.

"In this week's religion roundup pastors offer mixed responses to Republican transports of migrants to democratic run jurisdictions while a faith led group seeks missing migrants in the U.S. Mexico desert And Pope Francis calls for peace in Ukraine Is it cruel or harmless As Republican governors ramp up their transports of migrants to democratic run jurisdictions the practice is getting mixed reactions from Christian leaders Some depict the actions as inhumanely exploiting vulnerable people for political lands Others say it's a harmless way of calling attention to immigration's impact on states near the border Domingo Garcia president of the league of united Latin American citizens says the transports are unchristian Jesus would be very ashamed of these two governors If he saw how they were treating refugees since Jesus and his family were refugees once And it's against what we're taught in the Bible and what we're taught is American history about what that Statue of Liberty stands for and what Christian charity is about One pastor says quote government officials who refuse to fulfill their biblical responsibility to protect our borders should be made to feel the effects of their lawless policies Another countered that you shouldn't be loading people up and treating them as political groups Meanwhile this summer has been especially lethal for migrants crossing the U.S. Mexico border illegally In Arizona migrants who get sick or injured while walking dozens of miles across essentially uninhabited desert are often abandoned by their smugglers But one Pentecostal pastor in Tucson and his small group of volunteers is trying to bring comfort to missing migrants families by going on grueling desert hikes to find traces of their relatives He has received more than 400 calls from distress family since March alone and found the remains of dozens since last year Pope Francis has begged for an end to what he calls Russia's senseless and tragic war in Ukraine as he arrived in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan He participated in a government sponsored interface meeting during his three day trip I'm Walter ratliff

"kazakhstan" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"We're going to keep you up to date with news from all around the world, but that would turn to Mark crumpton here with the first word. David, thank you. Chinese president Xi Jinping is in Kazakhstan for a state visit. It's his first foreign trip in more than two years. She will next travel to neighboring Uzbekistan where he's expected to meet Russian president Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the Shanghai cooperation organization summit. That would be the two leaders first in person conversation since Moscow invaded Ukraine in February. Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts and over 120 countries. I'm Mark crumpton, this is Bloomberg. Thank you so very much, Mark. Well, I was moving following that CPI numbers and other PPI numbers really indicated. We've got an inflation problem in this country. And then inflation country problem could particularly hit a lot of the states. We welcome now Lonnie Chen. He's candidate for controller of the state of California, mister Chen serves as the policy director of Mitt Romney's presidential campaign and more recently has been a fellow at the Hoover institution. Lonny, great to have you. Thank you, David. In New York. So are you sure you want this job given what you're seeing going on with inflation? I mean, it's not going to make your job a lot harder if you get it. It's going to make it a lot harder for people and a lot of different states. You know, California is not unique We had a time of budget surplus that we've come out of, and now we're headed for a time of budget deficit. Some of that due to economic trends, some of that's due to our tax collection system and some of the challenges that we have. Obviously, a very lumpy tax collection system in California, very heavily dependent on capital gains. But at the end of the day, I think it's precisely times like these that require new leadership. Leadership that has an understanding of how the economy works, leadership that has experience in public policy and academia as I've had, but also in business. And I think that's why I've become pretty frustrated with what's happening in California. And I think this particular position is one where we can actually move the needle on good governance in California and hopefully improve the state of our economy. So what is the state of the California kind right now? Because I remember back when we were talking about some of that fiscal stimulus, some of the Republicans like how the cattle were saying, California doesn't need it because they're making a lot from tax revenues in part because people were selling a lot of appreciated stock, I think. Well, that's exactly right. So in a very strong budget position this year, that's going to change, as I said next year. So we had a 97 and a half $1 billion surplus this year. We got a tremendous amount of federal assistance. There hasn't been a ton of accountability, I would say, for a lot of that assistance, so $60 billion has come in for public schools in California, no accountability. We had massive unemployment insurance fraud. As many other states did, I think there was a calculation that across the entire country over a $100 billion in unemployment insurance fraud. We know at least 20 of it was in California. So we have an accountability problem and the challenge is, of course, money continues to come into the state of California, going forward, the issue we're going to have is with capital gains realizations down this year. We're headed for deficit. And we're headed for massive deficit. We're going from 97 and a half $1 billion up to probably 20 to $30 billion down over the next two fiscal years. So this is really going to be a challenge. Again, not unique to California. I think a lot of states are going to have to deal with this. But do you smooth that out in California with sort of a rainy day fund where you take some of the 97 billion excess so you can afford a deficit going forward? We do have a rainy day fund in California. I think the question, of course, is whether it should be more robustly funded. The other issue, of course, we have is massive, unfunded pension liabilities. And there the state could be devoting more of that surplus money to paying down our long-term pension responsibilities. They take a little bit out of the surplus to do that, but not nearly enough in my view. So that's an area where the controller can have some impact sitting on the boards of CalPERS and counselors, of course, the two large public pension funds in California. Talk to me just for a moment about the education part of it. We talked to gene sperling at The White House yesterday. And one of the questions we asked him was, maybe you could help a little in the inflation, but not expending all the funds that haven't been spent so far on the American rescue plan. He said, no, a lot of that's for education to catch up on something education we lost in the pandemic. Is he right? Well, a lot of education dollars are coming to California. A lot of it was use it or lose it and that's been used. Now the question is what it was actually used for. Going forward, I think California has a very robust education financing structure. We've had a couple of voter past initiatives that mandate certain amounts of spending on education. That's always going to be popular. That's always going to be important for a state like California to invest in public education. The challenge is, though, David, so many students, particularly students of color, Hispanic students, in particular, have suffered over the last couple of years learning loss. And this is an issue that I know you've talked to other guests about. This learning loss is really something that we need to address. And it's a function, not necessarily just of education spending, but making sure that spending is happening in the right places to get our kids up to where they need to be in terms of achievement going forward. Do you have the wherewithal in California? I'm not saying even just the controller to make the sort of forms you need in the education system because sometimes they're going to be resistant to some of the changes. For example, some people say, you just got to go longer into the summer. You got to have more hours in the classroom. Yeah. Well, we have a position in California called the superintendent of public instruction. It's a nonpartisan position. Unfortunately, that position has been occupied by someone who's been very sympathetic to the cause of the teachers unions. As opposed to somebody who I think would push for reform, we actually had a great person running a couple of years ago guy named Marshall tuck, who was a true reformer. Unfortunately, he couldn't make it over the finish line. One of the most expensive down ballot campaigns in California history. The reality is we're not going to be able to reform the education system until we take a fresh look at what we need to do to improve results and improve outcomes for kids and unfortunately I'm not sure that the will is there right now. Let me go back to the pension issue you were talking about unfunded pensions. A lot of states had that problem as we know Illinois, for example, we talk about often. As I understand it, it was sort of addressed in Rhode Island by Gina raimondo when she was governor there. It was not very popular. If you're really going to try to reform that, it's not a popular thing

"I know we're in the midst of a whole bunch of laptop shit with Hunter Biden and Trump is out there talking and being as usual rockstar self. Listen, there's a lot I could say about the laptop. I think we all get a thrill of perverse thrill seeing this guy act as crazy as he acts sexually with these women in drugs. There's something creepy about it, but we can't look away. That's not what's going to get Joe Biden in trouble. Even if there's these emails we've been reading in text in which hunter is saying that his ex won't let him near the kid because she thinks he's a pedophile and these texts went to Joe and his uncle Jim and it's all it all sounds gross and it is gross because Joe has always told us he's a fine boy. Hunters are fine, boy. We know that's nonsense. But until we find a money trail from hunter to Joe, even though that guy bubble linsky was involved and he's talking about it and Devin Cooney's talking. There's a lot of guys talking. We need to see the transfer of money from China. Or Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, whatever. It looks like that's a real possibility, but we need strong evidence until we get that. All we can do is just gawk at how sexual and fucked up on drugs, hunter was getting for a long time.

"Countries that are being represented. I was on the southern border in Yuma. You know the area well. I saw the passports. You can go right around one part of it. You know, right near the Native American reservation where they don't allow the wall. And there are thousands of passports that people drop, they drop their passports, talk about why they do that. And the amount of countries we're talking about Georgia, Kazakhstan, that are coming across the southern border. The rest of the people from a 157 different countries so far. 157. I think 7 countries are almost all of them. And some of these countries are sponsors of terrorism. Syria, Russia, North Korea. I mean, the 157 countries are the reason they got the passports. They want to be identified. Look, some of these countries have started locations. They don't have the nice data. They don't have biographical information to store the computer. So if these people have any derogatory information or past, if there are no suspected terrorists have terrorist ties, of course you're not going to carry a passport. They'll give a different name. They probably won't be anything biographical to be found on them. And plus, the gorge right now, 30 is so quick, they're not vetting them, like they're supposed to. You remember what happened in Afghanistan and they actually spent time trying to vet them, but they couldn't let them because there was no chief of mission in Afghanistan, no access to Afghanistan, government documents, it's even worse on the southern border. They're just processing fish as possible in releasing them. We've taken some biographic information, a set of prints in thousands have been recently noticed to report, which means they weren't even putting immigration proceedings from the secretary says, but the ones we released are putting the immigration proceedings live. They're giving those reports. We got to trust them to show up in an ice office when they think they can and be scheduled for a rest and be scheduled for immigration yet.

"The New York Times confirmed the authenticity of the emails, the sordid scandalous emails.

Well, it's a bittersweet Mike and I note that it took them 24 paragraphs before they actually acknowledged that the laptop was real and that the emails on it were real and they had confirmed that they were real. So now it has The New York Times imprimatur, maybe the rest of the media will stop calling our story unsubstantiated in a conspiracy theory as they've been doing for the last 16 months. And you know, New York Times certainly came to the party, but pretty slowly. It is 16 months since we published our initial stories written by imager Morris, my brilliant colleague. And front page story showing that Joe Biden had met with Hunter Biden's overseas business partners, at least one of them at that time, the guy from the Ukraine from that corrupt energy company burisma, Joe Biden's campaign denied that, said, no, it wasn't true. And then later on, you know, I kicked on scouring the laptop and found that, in fact, it was a dinner that Hunter Biden organized in Georgetown in 2015 for his father then the vice president to meet a number of these overseas business partners from Russia from Kazakhstan and from Ukraine. That was also denied until finally, The Washington Post tried to do effect check on my story.

"How Electoral College votes are counted and Russia comes to the defense of the Kazakhstan regime From the Bloomberg interactive broker studio in New York welcome to the second hour of balance of power I'm David Weston For months we've been focused on Russian troops massing on the border with Ukraine But then protests in Kazakhstan erupted threatening the regime there and giving president Putin cause for concern in another part of what was once the Soviet empire Welcome now an authority on Russia and on mister Putin Angela stent is professor emerita at Georgetown university a senior fellow at the brookings institution and author of Putin's world Russia against the west and with the rest of professor stent Welcome back always great to have you here Let's start with Kazakhstan if we could What do we know and for that matter what don't we know about what's going on in Kazakhstan right now Well thank you for having me back on your show And there's quite a lot that we don't know What we do know now is that apparently the violence has lessened The protests broke out a few days ago in the western part of the country where the oil fields are located and they broke out because the government in its infinite wisdom decided to double the price of the fuel that people use in their cars It's not exactly gasoline but it's something like that And that plus all the after effects economic after effects of the COVID pandemic and general distrust of the government that led people out in that part of the country to start protesting And then suddenly it just spread throughout the country And then what we heard was that the Internet was cut off we had the speech by the president's takaya blaming quote unquote terrorists and foreign agents for it And so he invited the collective security treaty organization which is essentially led by Russia It's a group of some of the former Soviet states to send troops to come and restore order So we do know that the Russian troops have arrived and some troops from Belarus as well And I think a few from Armenia and they have been apparently securing the buildings some of the infrastructure But we also know that there have been ludicrous there being criminal elements that are apparently the government has also talked about fundamentalists So there's quite a lot of confusion foreigners on being allowed to enter the country at the moment Communications are very difficult but the sense now is that things are beginning to stabilize So give us your best estimate of how this looks to president Putin As I say you wrote that wonderful book with a lot of insight into his psychology how he thinks He obviously is very concerned about Ukraine before that was Belarus and by the way Georgia and now he's got a Kazakhstan Is he at all concerned about becoming overextended or is this actually playing into his larger strategy I would say this time it's playing into a larger strategy After all the Russians had to really move into Belarus last year with the year before last with disputed election and now firmly entrenched there Kazakhstan is an ally of Russia's in various different fora And for the Russian stability was very important then in the northern part of the country you still have a large number of Russians and other Slavic people living there And the CAPEX have always been worried because in my book I recount how a few years ago president multiplied you've done a great job in building this country that don't forget there was never a Kazakh state before And of course the customer as a really very much a double edged sword So I think this gives Russia at the moment the opportunity to move in there the concept is depending on them natural restore order We don't know how long they'll stay there It's going to create more of a dependence of Kazakhstan on Russia And I don't think it's going to overextend Russia yet There are only about 2500 Russian troops as I understand there are in Kazakhstan You've got up to a 100,000 masks on the border of Ukraine So at the moment that's not a problem If they had to get more involved military it might be But I think this is an opportunity for Putin again to reassert Russia's role in this post Soviet space So let's come back to Ukraine for a moment We're about we're on the eve of a discussion The strategic discussions between the United States and Russia also have NATO discussions coming up next week as well How are the parties positioned between the United States and Russia going into these discussions I've heard talk that maybe the United States might be willing to make some concessions about positioning of certain weapons So the United States is going into this saying we're willing to talk to Russia We hope that we can come to some compromise but there are obviously some issues where the Russians have made demands which are a non starter And those have to do with promising that NATO will never end logic and that Ukraine will never join NATO or that we won't ever just will remove our missile defense components from Poland and Romania Those are some of the things that were in the Russian demand But I think the U.S. is going to be willing to talk about some different classes of weapons where the Russians some of the demands they've made have to do with weapons that the U.S. hasn't deployed anywhere yet So that could certainly be discussed something about sort of true positioning in some of their members of NATO that are near to Russia All of those issues I think could be negotiable But from the U.S. point of view it's going to be very important for the Russians to show that they're willing to show good faith and begin to deescalate military of the border So I think that's one of the issues where the U.S. is insisted going forward that there has to be some sign that the Russians are negotiating in good faith Professor from your point of view how does time factor into this As long as the Russians are not going to Ukraine that's sort of a good for the United States point of view But from Vladimir Putin's point of view is he prepared to have a long negotiation with this Or does he need some results pretty quickly Well he apparently does not want to allow negotiation I mean he manufactured this crisis There was nothing to.

"Protesters called for the entire political system to go by Wednesday, Kazakhstan's president qasim Jamar tokayev had sacked his cabinet and the prime minister. And he called for backup. Yesterday forces led by Russian troops arrived to help quell the violence. Overnight, president tokayev claimed that order had been restored. He's due to address the nation later today, but with a media blackout, it's hard to know just how ordered things are, and whether this is the end of or just a pause in an uprising. This all began when the price of fuel rocketed in Kazakhstan and particularly in one particular region after the government ended subsidies on a particular type of gas that is used by many people in Kazakhstan to run their cars. And that's what sparked the protests. Joanna Lewis writes about Central Asia for The Economist and is based in almaty, the capital of Kazakhstan. The protesters moved very quickly in very many places. Many cities and towns where they had gathered from protesting over this one particular issue to expanding their grievances and expressing those grievances over many socioeconomic issues such as poverty and joblessness and inflation. And from that they moved also very quickly into voicing political slogans and political demands. Why do you think all those grievances have come to the Forbes so quickly? What we're seeing here is resentments that I've heard people expressing in Kazakhstan for many, many years now more than a decade certainly over the way that they live and the way that they're leaders live over the disparity between those ways of life, people feel that Kazakhstan is an oil rich country, and they feel that they don't benefit enough from that. They feel that their leaders, many of their leaders are corrupt and steal the process. They feel that money is splashed on vanity projects, and they feel that their leaders don't understand their problems and don't try to solve their problems. And all of this, we've heard at the protests, certainly in the early days of the protest before these protests degenerated into violence. And we've heard people saying that they won't political change. They want accountable leaders. Because in Kazakhstan, they don't feel they get a fair say of free choice in elections because there is no political opposition. But what would that political change look like? What are the protesters asking for here? Well, the protesters have been demanding that basically the entire political establishment should go. They have a slogan that's been chanted in Kazakhstan for many years and it hasn't. It sounds like this shell cat. And that means old man out and it refers to the first president of Kazakhstan. The octogenarian nursultan nazarbayev, who now occupies an elder statesman type role, and it means he kind of rules in tandem with his handpicked successor. That's kasim zomato. And people shout that slogan, meaning that he should get out of politics after, you know, after they've lived under his thumb for 30 years now. But this slogan has really taken on a broader meaning for the protesters and for people generally in Kazakhstan, who are demanding that the political class that really has ruled them for these three decades of independence, which they see us all Todd with the same brush, but they should go. So the protests have really taken on an enormous political angle. And this is what obviously what spooked the regime. And how has the government reacted as all this has played out? Well, it started with a carrot by making concessions to the protesters. I mean, one thing it did quite quickly was to backtrack on the end of subsidies for this particular fuel so that infectively, the initial demand was met. However, by this point, the protest has snowballed the demands of snowboard and this didn't satisfy the protesters. The president also fired the entire government, but this was not enough for the protesters. So at some point, the government decided to react in a much more heavy handed fashion and also accused the protesters of being terrorists and reacting with what the president has called an anti terrorist operation. And the president has also invited foreign troops to come and help quell the disturbances which is certainly a first because of Stan and quite rare in the entire post Soviet region. And where do these foreign troops come from? So troops from an organization called the collective security treaty organization, which is a very much a Russia led body and is sort of touted as the post Soviet region's answer to NATO, have arrived in Kazakhstan and so those troops are now involved in quelling the protests and helping to restore order, which is obviously a very dramatic development for an independent country to invite foreign troops in still more so from its former colonial power because Kazakhstan was part of the Soviet Union and the Russian Empire. So this is a real sign of how seriously president takaya is taking this. And I suppose it's all the more significant because at the same time, Russia has this massing of troops on the Ukraine border and squabbling with NATO and America. What's your view on how this move into Kazakhstan affects all of that? Well, there are two ways of looking at this when we're talking about Russia's role now that it has troops on the ground in Kazakhstan. One is that this looks like a debacle for Russia if it's got now gone unrest on its eastern Flank while it's saber rattling if you like on its western Flank in Ukraine. But it could also be seen, of course, as in some measure, a victory for Russia, because Kazakhstan has had to turn to Russia for help. And, you know, I invited basically invited Russian troops into the country. So this could be seen by Vladimir Putin as a chance to show his strength and as a chance to show how Russia is needed by its former colonies and how it's still required when the going gets tough, our neighbors turn to Russia and not to someone else. So this is one way of looking at it. We also seeing some speculation in the Russian media that all of this is a sort of attempt to ferment trouble for Russia by stoking unrest in Kazakhstan stoking a color revolution by pro western forces in order to create trouble for Russia as it tries to negotiate security guarantees with NATO and at particularly tensor juncture. That's what's been banded about in the Russian media. But what we've seen in other former Soviet republics, what we saw for months in Belarus last year is that the people can rise up like this. You don't need to invoke shadowy for an actors. I think that what is happening in Kazakhstan has been witnessed elsewhere in the former Soviet Union. It's been 30 years since the Soviet Union collapsed. That anniversary was celebrated last year. And I think in some countries such as Kazakhstan and Belarus and other countries too, there is a perception that not enough has changed after 30 years. Indeed, very little has changed in terms of the political system. So there are pent up resentments that have boiled over into anger rage and protest on the street. And now in Kazakhstan, into violence. Joanna, thank you very much for joining us. Thank you, Jason..

Republicans Should Focus on Election Abuse, Not Voter Fraud

"President Biden won the election in November. And I knew it that night and confirmed it the next morning because I know that in order to turn over a state election, you have to be within a thousand votes at the close of a balloting. It was never even close. There's no evidence of widespread fraud. There was. And I'm a little frustrated, but Ashley Parker, my colleague at The Washington Post this morning for our story, I spoke to her for half an hour about why I asked candidates in your opinion did President Biden win a constitutional majority on election day? And if so, how strong is your opinion? My opinion is very strong that yes indeed he did. But candidates stumble on that. They don't know what to say. They don't want to offend the hardcore president Trump supporters who think massive. Massive pride did not occur. Did not happen. And however, election abuse did happen. I go back to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court changing the rules left and right. I go back to all sorts of different things all over the country. That upset people. And I believe in making it easy to vote and hard to cheat. And I love the election laws that are being passed in Georgia and other states. And there's nonsense narrative from MSNBC in the Democrats and every other CNN that there is a threat to your voting rights. It's all absurd. It's stupid. So we look back at January 6 compared to what is happening to Kazakhstan right now where there is an insurrection, by the way, at just insurrection. And the security forces are mowing down people. It is important for us to remember that America remains the last best hope of the world and has been since the Declaration of Independence.

"The violence in the Central Asian nation of Kazakhstan escalated sharply last night State run media say dozens of people were killed including at least 13 members of the security forces Russian troops have been sent to Kazakhstan at the government's request to help call the violence It's the worst violence in Kazakhstan since they gained independence three decades ago Joining us now to help explain the events is Peter Leonard the Central Asia editor for Eurasia net Peter remind us how all of this started and how it all seems to have just escalated so quickly Yes well hello So it began on January the second and a oil town and western Kazakhstan where local people were protesting against the sudden surge in prices for liquified petroleum gas which is the gas that most people they are used to power their cars And so this sort of began as quite a local cost of living protests But inspired by this rally people in cities nearby began coming out onto the streets in very large numbers that Kazakhstan is not very used to And this eventually spread all the way across Kazakhstan all the way to Al mate which is the country's old capital Kazakhstan as a country about the size of Western Europe It's a huge country and so to see it sort of the protest spread across such a kind of a large area so quickly it was quite a sight So by the January 4th this had escalated into a big nationwide movement and we saw the most vocal and indeed subsequently violent protests unfolded in almaty the business capital of Kazakhstan on the fourth This nationwide movement that you mentioned any indication that it's organized or does it seem spontaneous It seems absolutely spontaneous And there's a reason for that is that Kazakhstan is a authoritarian former Soviet it's a kind of rules very much in the Soviet model And as a result all opposition has been pretty much crushed and independent media most of it has been sidelined And so as a result it means that whenever these things happen it's very difficult for any sort of one leader to sort of emerge as the focal point of these kind of movements And so this has been the nature of this wave of protests We don't really know who is leading any of these rallies or any of these protests and I think that accounts to some extent for the kind of chaos that ensued Will the Russian lead peacekeepers from the former Soviet republics mean that the violence will at least for now be quelled Well quelled I don't know if quilt would maybe crossed would be the more correct word to use because although these appear to be protests which then sort of degenerated into unrest and that that's beyond dispute The Kazakh government came out yesterday and basically cast all of these events as the work of terrorists acting on behalf of shady criminal groups And so the reaction from the government has now been to basically treat this as a terrorist act And so I think the response is going to be very harsh and very bloody indeed and we're already seeing evidence of that news of dozens of protests as having been killed already That's Peter latter Central Asia editor for Eurasia net Peter thank you Thank you very much This is NPR news At 7 19 this is doubly with my C coming up on morning edition An organization in Dallas started by refugees is now working to welcome newly arrived ones from Afghanistan and helping women find jobs and then later an exhibit at the Peabody Essex museum in Salem Massachusetts immersive visitors into soundscapes from Renault parts of the planet from the tropics to the.

That's the message from the country's un ambassador mahjan ilyasov speaking ahead of the international day against nuclear tests observed annually on that date it commemorates the nineteen ninety-one closure of the semipalatinsk test site in northeastern kazakhstan. Where the soviet union exploded hundreds of nuclear devices over forty year period. Ludmila blog on revolver asked mr ilyas off about kazahkstan's role in spearheading the international day and about the significance of the un treaty. On the prohibition of nuclear weapons which entered into force in january given the ongoing developments in afghanistan he also spoke about how kazahkstan is assisting scores of afghans living and studying their lip. Start by saying that today. The threat of nuclear weapons uses as realistic as ever and it was three decades ago on the twenty nine hundred ninety one when president ronald another by decided to shut down the semi politics nuclear test site and thus he basically started the whole process of closure of other nuclear tests is around the world after kazakhstan moratorium on nuclear site where declared by russian to duration nova zemlya than united states followed with nevada. Franz with more ruin china is deciding logano so for us twenty nine. Th of august is just a day in a calendar it is a reminder about how dramatic nuclear tests can be for humankind because in kazakhstan alone. One point five million people still suffer and we'll unfortunately suffer for the future generations from genetic diseases cancer leukemia which we are caused by exposure to nuclear tests and the total Power of all the tests that we carried out on semipalatinsk is one thousand two hundred times more than the bomb. That was used in hiroshima in august. Forty-five so again can imagine the scale on that Radiation in semi piloting The test site itself is of size of so. It's a big chunk of territory. Cows on that cannot be used for any other purposes like agriculture. For many many decades now so we that we can also project. What was the damage caused by other nuclear sites around the world which were eventually closed and The closure of semipalatinsk in kazakhstan I would say started the whole process of developing and then adopting ninety six the treaty on prohibition of nuclear tests I think this is a significant event for everyone around.
