"Successfully done it to get a man named Trump into The White House, they will try to do it again to get control back of the Senate in the house. So I guess what I'm saying to you is if people really want to protect abortion rights in the United States and protect other rights, the only way they can do it is by turning out in November and voting for the side that says they will protect those rights. I just can't tell you that's the way that this plays out. Scott, thank you so much for joining us on the line here. On monocle 24, a quick look now at the rest of today's news headlines. NATO has pledged to increase its presence around Sweden and the Baltic Sea if Sweden applies to join the alliance. Sweden and neighboring Finland are expected to make a decision on whether they're wanting to join NATO this month following the invasion of Ukraine. The U.S. reportedly provided the intelligence to help Ukraine sink the Moscow, Russia's flagship Black Sea missile cruiser, reports suggest Ukraine had asked the U.S. about a ship sailing to the south of edessa, and the U.S. had helped to confirm its location. Ukraine then struck it with two missiles. For the first time, a black woman has been nominated as the U.S. president's press secretary, karine Jean Pierre, who's also openly gay, has served as the administration's principal deputy press secretary since mister Biden was elected to replace the outgoing press secretary Jen Psaki, who is leaving to work for MSNBC. And the U.S. Senate has confirmed that Caroline Kennedy, a former ambassador to Japan and daughter of the late president John F. Kennedy as the U.S. ambassador to Australia. And those are the headlines on monocle 24. I think it may be safely assumed that there aren't many people who can say they've had dinner with Vladimir Putin, while my debt next guest can, and in quite extraordinary circumstances. Katarina yuschenko is the former First Lady of Ukraine, born and raised in Chicago. She moved to Ukraine in 1991, where she met her husband, Viktor Yushchenko, the man who had become famous for being poisoned during his campaign to become the country's president. Well, earlier this week, I spoke to katerina for the big interview, and I began by asking her whether she was surprised that Vladimir Putin had decided to invade Ukraine. I have to say that we had never expected Russia to give up on trying to take over Ukraine. We knew that would happen. But we expected that Russia would do this in a much more intelligent, in devious, manipulative manner than they did. He came into Ukraine expecting to take it over in three days. He sent in troops with store of metals and parade uniforms thinking that he would march down our Main Street khrushchev in a parade within three days, handout medals for the taking over of Kyiv and then odes and then eve. And that was absolutely an impossible task. Instead, when he realized that he could not do what he wanted, he decided to pursue a strategy of destroying cities of committing tremendous atrocities. And indeed, just doing all he could to eliminate the Ukrainians as a nation as a people and take them over because of a manic obsession. With taking over Ukraine, Amanda obsession that is partly driven by mostly driven by his desire to stay in power. Tell me a little bit more about the Vladimir Putin now compared to the Putin that your husband and I believe you met and knew. Do you know we had met him several of my husband spent many hours speaking with him I had only met him twice in my life. One time at an event at a commemoration and Auschwitz and one time in our home for dinner. What's it like having Vladimir Putin round your house for dinner? I think you're the first person I've ever met who that's happened to. Well, we had him for dinner only months after my husband had been poisoned and I knew very well that he had poisoned my husband. It was a surreal experience, but it was something that we had to rise above our personal feelings because Ukraine needed Russia at the time we were transporting gas, we needed to have a good relationship with Russia and even though the Kremlin has always accused my husband of being very very anti Russian. My husband tried from day one to establish some type of a relationship with Russia because it was so important to Ukraine at the time economically. To somehow pursue that. It was a very strange experience. I have to say that I do not believe that Putin changed a great deal over time. He became more hardened, more isolationist and more manic over time, yes. But he came from a KGB background. He was only a colonel in the KGB, which meant that he was not very high up in the KGB. He was not very well educated. He was at a position where he had to be brutal and petty. And that is what he stayed. He stayed a man that was brutal and petty over the years. And that was a former First Lady of Ukraine, katerina Yushchenko. You can listen to the interval interview in full when it airs next week on the big interview at Friday at 10 a.m. here in London..

"Listening to Monaco 24. It has just gone 7 16 here in London, 9 16 in Mario pole. Now who knows what's happening at the azov style steelworks in the Ukrainian city of mariupol. Ukraine said its forces were engaged in a difficult bloody battle against Russian troops and the Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky said civilians hiding in bunkers under the steelworks will need to be dug out by hand. Meanwhile, the UN and Red Cross are helping organize convoys out of the city, but some 200 people remain trapped. A ladder rositi is the founder managing partner of black trident defense and security consulting group and she joins me on the line. Once again, welcome back to delighted to have you with us. Lada, could you possibly bring us up to date with what is happening in Mario pole now on day 72 of the conflict? I guess nothing short of hell is happening. And one of the most frustrating aspects of watching every day go by knowing that some of the best trained warriors in Ukraine are basically in a basement with hundreds of civilians dying is a dreadful, even worse is that Russia is denying the air raids. It's completely denying that it's doing this, which begs the question, what is the international community going to do to hold Russia accountable and we're not sure that these people who are stuck in that steel mill are going to make it out alive, particularly because of the intense bombing, it looks like they're going to be looking for bodies and digging them out by hand. That's the latest perspective from the president. There is supposed to be a ceasefire happening today. There is supposed to be efforts from the Red Cross from everybody to try and get people out of Mario pole. How hopeful are we that some civilians will be evacuated from the site? I think there's a good chance that we're looking at dozens maybe. Maybe a hundred people, but there are many, many more. And these individuals require extreme care. Not only due to their injuries, but also psychological assistance is needed very, very badly. And this is something where the international community really needs to be pulling together and focusing on not just saving them as sad as that may sound, but really providing the adequate medical care, the field hospitals, which are few and far apart, really need to be closer to areas where the Russians are in fact committing in succeeding and committing genocide against Ukrainians. Telling us a little bit more about what the international community is doing. I mean, we have The Pentagon today, not necessarily denying or accepting the claims that the sinking of the mosque of the enormous Russian warship that went down a couple of weeks ago was helped by the United States giving you intelligence to the Ukrainians as to the location of this enormous warship. Something like that, I mean, it doesn't necessarily bring lots and lots of practical help to withstand the assault from the Russians. But what does that do to make Ukraine perhaps think that someone at least is watching out for them? Well, every single drop of assistance is badly needed and of course it is happily accepted. I believe that it is important for the international community to really pull together Ukraine has been a NATO partner for peace and has been cooperating with NATO allies for decades now. So the fact that there is information sharing, it's something that has been a strategic goal of Ukraine for many, many years. More international support is needed. I believe it should be broadened. A little bit further away from just out east west. Role, but really looking into other countries like India, for instance, that have been defense sitting a little bit to really kick into gear and support the democracies and freedoms that they're enjoying because if they don't, their dependency on the Russian Federation is going to turn them into a disaster that we're seeing in Ukraine. What about Putin's allies outside of Russia? We heard this astonishing statement from the president of Belarus yesterday, Alexander Lukashenko, who said that he didn't want the operation to drag on this way. I mean, he's long given his backing to Russia's invasion. But the fact was as though as an expression thereof, not touchiness, but a running out of patience. Well, as far as Bill rushes concerned, we must have a great amount of sympathy for the people who are living under the authoritarian regime of Lukashenko. And let us be reminded that Bill of Russia and Russia signed an agreement which created a union, because Russia wants to create this empire. And it wants to make that empire even larger than the Soviet Union was. So Bill Russia has a basically a population which is hijacked by Lukashenko and Lukashenko is a puppet of Putin. So this Motley duo is a very tender relationship and the relationship has added an additional 1000. I think it was like 1086 kilometers of border to the north that Ukraine now has to be defending. And this is an extremely large amount of territory if we're considering the full frontal attack Ukraine has experiencing by the Russians. Thank you so much for joining us on monocle 24 still to come on today's program how the wife of the former Ukrainian president Viktor Yushchenko opened her home to Vladimir Putin, the man who tried to have her husband murdered. Well, we had him for dinner only months after my husband had been poisoned and I knew very well that he had poisoned my husband. It was a very strange experience. Stay tuned on the globalist.

"Talks aimed at ending the war in Ukraine There's a shocking story about the possibility a number of people may have been poisoned ABC's James longman has more Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich spotted at those peace talks in Istanbul following reports he and two Ukrainian peacemakers may have been poisoned as they tried to help broker talks between Russia and Ukraine The Wall Street Journal reporting Abramovich and peace negotiators suffered symptoms of suspected poisoning after eating in Kyiv earlier this month Abramovich the owner of the Chelsea soccer team was sanctioned by the UK for what they called his close relationship with Vladimir Putin in the past something he denies But his link to Putin and the increasing pressure on a growing number of oligarchs raises questions about why he'd say he was targeted Ukraine's chief negotiator mikhailo podolak told ABC News that he wouldn't be drawn on the claim calling it an information game and that all members of the negotiation group are working as usual Putin's dark reputation for assassinating opponents perhaps a convenient context for a Russian oligarch looking for new allies Later Putin has this deep sense of betrayal and what we don't know is it possible that Roman Abramovich has sort of undercut the Kremlin and therefore Putin wants to assassinate him and murder him The investigative meter outlet bellingcat reporting the alleged victims experienced symptoms consistent with poisoning with chemical weapons including eye and skin information and piercing pain in the eyes The Wall Street Journal reporting they had peeling skin on their faces and hands This temporary pain may have been intended as a warning The Kremlin has denied poisoning multiple opponents in recent years like Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny who fell ill on a flight from Serbia to Moscow in 2020 It was attacked with the same Russian nerve agent used in the poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal in 2018 Former Ukrainian president Viktor Yushchenko also a victim of poisoning leaving his face disfigured Using poisons killing their opponents is something that the Kremlin has done literally for decades and decades And so this is the kind of thing that we could expect from the Kremlin but it's just not clear to us yet why they would do it in this case The FDA has authorized people aged 50 and older to get a second booster shot of the COVID-19 vaccine It will give extra protection for vulnerable adults if there's another surge of the virus Nick popham has more Over two years into a pandemic and the main takeaway for people walking around gene cool on park and Renton continues to be safety We should do as much as we can to remain safe Oh I think it's always good to have more options out there Because many of the people we spoke with are now eligible for that second booster shot after the FDA authorized it for people 50 and older But even with that authorization the CDC isn't recommending everyone over 50 get that second booster Only people who are immunocompromised That distinction at least for the folks we spoke with.
