"vladimir zelinski" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing

"I think is more a question. Of how much are they going to have to have changed the the afghanistan. The taliban was running in the late. Nineties is not the afghanistan of now which i have been back to once since It cannot be overstated. How much visiting afghanistan in the late ninety s was like stepping off the planet There was certainly no internet. There were no mobile phones. Under the taliban there was no television. No radio Most landlines even working. So the understanding people in afghanistan had of the outside world was extremely rudimentary. Which i think probably made it. Easier for the taliban to impose their idea of order. That's obviously not the case. Now there is an entire generation of afghans who have grown up raised in raised and grown up and seen what it's like to be part of a developed and connected world considering that. What are your thoughts. When you're following. The news from afghanistan was happening over there. What do you think about the way. Young people are seeing the world at the moment and and and seeing what's happening in the country i mean it's it's it's desperately sad But i think if there's any Scope for optimism. I think that is a big. If at the moment unfortunately it is in exactly that. it's not going to be as easy for the taliban. At least i hope it's not gonna be as easy for the taliban to reimpose. They're incredibly backward view of the world on a country which has now known that there is an alternative and doesn't really have to be this way. Now paul what are your thoughts about that. Do think this is a reason for optimism. That's the young generation enough ghanistan east more aware about off what's happening in the world some optimism but like like android and really be very cautious on this one. There are a couple of other factors. I think to consider one is that sundarban had been beatty controlling substantial rural areas. I finished on for months and pepe several years. An in some of those. There's been some degree of moderation as the words some about the has-beens and in fact new girls have been going to school beyond the age of twelve in some of the districts. It's also the case that the taliban leadership has spent a lot of time overseas in doha and has been meeting. People from other countries on the third thing is that the taliban already have at least two possibly three relatively friendly regimes russia obviously for his own reasons pakistan inevitably end the isis The taliban links with the internists into interservices intelligence agency as the Basically a pakistani army of very close and then the country which i think one has to waltz absolutely china You had senior taliban officials having a summit meeting china just four weeks ago before the taliban took over and that was really to discuss long-term relations china see the great value in having the taliban curb the week paramilitaries who in the midst and can also see the great value of helping afghanistan developed rapidly under the taliban even a many in the taliban can see the value that we simply don't know how many what proportion and where it will sort of phase out but it's a much more complicated position and i'll be surprised. Frankly if the taliban unmelted control in say three years time in the short term they may well go for bringing some other people into governance. One wouldn't rule that out and they haven't yet decided what form of government they have. Will they end up with something. Like iran where the is a civil leader. The basically the powers held by the religious authority. And that may be what happens. Paul and thank you very much for joining us. That's security expert. Paul rogers to monaco contributing editor.

Thank you very much emma. We had to germany now. Where the country's centre-left policy the sp are enjoying a bump in the pulse ahead of next month's general election the social democrats had largely been horizon off ahead of the vote bus a recent surge task even the party confidence that they're candidates. All scholtz could become germany's next jones. Silla ghosting gummy lane. Is deputy editor of the parliamentary bureau off the seuddeutsche sightseeing and is based in berlin. She's just interviewed will scholtz the german finance minister around the spd's candidate for johnson. Welcome to the program. So first of all germany's election campaign is about answering homestretch. And we are indeed seeing a surge in support for scholtz. Why do you think that is and where is not support support coming from basically. We have a very interesting election campaigning. Now because everyone sword there will be only about between the green party chief aniline epoch and the own your who candidate ali But now so man and around and he is now basically looking very happy since the pause came up and presented him Over the weekend on the same level light city say and it's very interesting because he has been the candidate of social democratic party now for more than one year in the beginning of august last year his party presented him as a candidate and almost everybody was laughing. And saying oh. My god and the party was about thirteen fourteen percent and deposits but now suddenly Everybody is talking to him. And more and more people expect him to have a big grow in the next government. So what's happened towards her to led to that boost in his popularity. Actually boost is coming a one from fox. The other the others are doing and elena babba started really a really good campaigning. But after already after a week or ten days daria some mistakes so for instance she forgot to to apart exactly about her income and she published a book that has some blog yard so she did not correct rioted and people had the impression that the green party leader over estimated herself and at the beginning it was very good for her that everybody competitor orbis malka. Malcolm is a standard Day most loved politician. Interim many annalena babar could benefit addict benefit from that popularity as a woman and being exact fighting and now more and more this momentum is lost and then we have to candidate off the city at the beginning. They party saw that. I mean you've become the next chancellor and when he was nominated here he had a twenty percent more to any par person point more than or less and the spd's everybody saw okay he will make by then army. Lajja did really big mistakes. Then we had this big flood here in invest part of germany. He was working through this area and then he was laughing in the background. Really loud then. Our german president gave a few words to come. Our cameras and microphones and he did more of these mistakes and so it it would taste is trust declining the polls So what is your. What is your view do you think of. Scholtz has a realistic chance of indeed becoming the next johnson up he he has momentum and he has really a chance to to bring his party a tour. Twenty two twenty three percent. And then perhaps we'll see something really new interim many so far had only two party coalition sedalia. We'll tell you so as one party and the spd's for the last year or the ftp in the last years. So now this year it looks like f f e if he could get three party coalition. Spd the green party and sap so that will be very interesting how that could work out and the question is actually for the moment that leather disquisition could be led by orla shots or an alien abbott. And at the moment it looks more that aura shots and the spd will get more votes in the election. Atlantic green party. But it's the five five weeks one half exactly exactly. Well can you tell us about schultz election. Themes what can we expect from him. If he wins and indeed does succeed. Uncle mercosur the next johnson in the way is very similar to harar. He's solid lamb..

"The show we did nine eastern on msnbc. Thanks for joining us. This are happy to have you here this monday night. We start tonight. Actually with some news first broken today by our rivals across town at cnn cnn today obtained of twenty nine thousand nine. Phone conversation between rudy giuliani and an adviser to the president of ukraine. In that conversation which again took place in two thousand nineteen. Mr giuliani can be heard pressuring the cranium government that their president must publicly announce a sham investigation into alleged wrongdoing by joe biden. Now if that sounds very familiar. That's because then president trump made the exact same demands of the president of ukraine. Just three days after this giuliani call happened. That was the july twenty fifth twenty thousand nine conversation in which trump famously told the ukrainian president that he must quote. Do us a favor. Though trump wanted the president of ukraine to announce a bogus investigation into into joe biden who was the democratic presidential candidate that trump most feared running against in twenty twenty until the newly elected president of ukraine announced these bogus investigations into joe biden. Trump said that unless and until he did that congressionally approved. Us military aid to ukraine would be put on ice. It would not come through until celeski did what trump needed to make sure that he was well positioned against biden in his reelection effort in twenty twenty In in making this sort of extortionate play against ukrainian president vladimir zelinski trump also refused to grant linski something he was desperately seeking the time Which was a meeting at the white house. Obviously crane was at war with russia both then and now it was desperately important ukraine. Not only that they get. Us aid but that the whole world could see that. The united states of america was on ukraine side and standing with ukraine in their conflict with russia trump held all of that back and said no. No no not unless you help me in my domestic reelection campaign by smearing joe biden that call happened between trump and ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskiy july twenty fifth. Two thousand nineteen the hair-raising nature of that call was alerted up the chain by an anonymous whistle blower that set in motion. What would end up being the first of two impeachments of president. Donald trump but before tonight before cnn published this today. We had never before heard the call. That rudy giuliani made three days before. Trump's call zelenskiy in which giuliani made. Clear that these were the stakes. He laid out the groundwork for that call between the two presidents. Now as i mentioned this is a call between rudy. Giuliani and basically the top adviser to to ukraine's president as i said this call took place thirty days before trump's one on one call with ukraine's president and this all came after giuliani had spent months meeting with his secret sources in ukraine. Trying to dig up dirt on. Joe biden himself. The secret sources. Giuliani was meeting with all that time the. Us government has now identified them. As active agents of the russian intelligence services. Giuliani was getting all this dirt from the russian intelligence services demanding that ukraine used that as the basis for announcing the sham investigations into biden and then he and trump both made clear that they would get nothing from the us government and nothing that they needed unless they did that to help trump out. It's such a sort of thing that we went through and we've been through a lot in the last few years but this remains an like a unspeakably craven thing. We've got the audio which speaks for itself. Before i plant. I should know that. Nbc has not independently obtained this audio. It is cnn's audio but it's contents do match up with previous reporting about the content of this call as as well as previously released. Transcript of it that was obtained by buzzfeed news. Listen all we need always. Even the president is stay honest prosecutor. George investigate dig up the evidence that presently assists have you have any other thoughts about involvement of the two thousand sixteen elections and then the ads to be brought out. The biden thing has to be run out has to be run out. You run a political hit on my opponent. And then maybe you can get your. Us aid money. Maybe then you can get your white house meeting statement at the right time but he supports three are honest more horsemen system investigation. Go wherever they have to go run by honest people really well and i think it would make it possible for me to come and take your possible. I think for me to talk to the president she would. I could do.

Franco or Dona is NPR news Well, Russia says violence, said the capital shows America's electoral system is archaic and does not meet modern democratic standards. NPR's Lucian Kim reports, the Kremlin sees the post election turmoil in the U. S, is undermining America's authority. Russia's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said on Facebook, the chaos and Washington is a domestic issue of the United States and that she hopes the American people would survive this dramatic moment with dignity. A number of Russian lawmakers joined in the gloating, saying the riot in the U. S. Capitol was payback for US support for people power revolutions in Russia's neighbors such as Ukraine.

If the vice president would show the courage, I think they probably should invoke the 25th amendment of always the quickest way to do it.

"Broadcasting from the forest and cottage Lake Washington. Just outside of Seattle on my russian-made MK 219 microphone off. This is broadcast. Number one point nine upon parlor Twitter Facebook. You know, whatever. Your poison is Brian your bro, and at the Republic. Com website for the social media connections and more and we will treat today like every other day and begin the broadcast by thanking God for good health and the ability to be your sharing with you and me. Thank you for joining this morning. Thanks for your time and attention hopefully things are working to stream is going out people can hear me and I guess we'll find out with each of these jobs. iterations as we go so You know, I've been on this thing talking a little bit the last few days about why a Christian person can't or maybe shouldn't consider voting for The Democratic caucus it and of course, that's probably not been popular and that's cool. I'm good with that. But you know, here we are now and there's going to be one more song episode of that and that'll probably be Monday and we are going to talk about the pro-life issue and how it impacts a whole bunch of other issues and why am I being a pro-life person is not a single-issue position and we'll talk about that on Monday and some of the arguments also against voting Republican over that issue and explore some of those and there are people who make some arguments David French among them along those lines. So but today we're going to shift gears a little bit because I Had covered quite in-depth last like two months ago the Biden Ukraine stuff and I've laid off a little bit off because it just hasn't been in the news with all of the other stuff that's been going on but it's back in the news with the release of the Senate report yesterday, one of the Senate reports yesterday. And you know, I played yesterday on yesterday's broadcast at the end of broadcast a reporter asked Joe Biden about this and Jo as we've learned now with Joe has a temper and he you know expressed that repeatedly we've seen him with the dog face pony soldier thing and and telling the auto worker, you know, you're full of it. I'm offering to fight people over and over Joe's always the guy who's going to you know, he does ball up his fists, you know, he kind of does that you know, hey, do you want to go a few rounds kind of thing and dead? Yesterday, I guess maybe day before somebody asked him about this Senate report and about his son and Joe doesn't take a lot of questions and he definitely doesn't take a lot of questions off that are shouted at him from reporters to begin with but this one came up and here was Jose response. Sons job in Ukraine how is that not a conflict of interest there's not a conflict of interest there's been no indication of any conflict of interest from Ukraine or anywhere else. I'm not going to I'm not respond to that page. Let's focus on the problem focus on this made focus on this man focus on this man now, I want to a little aside here and I played off last week some stuff about the color revolutions, right and about this idea of had a Cory Aquino there from the Philippines saying I can offer nothing but hope and one of the wrong kind of striking features of the color revolutions is that they focus on the person they focus on she was focused on battling are not Maryland area go Marcos Ferdinand Marcos there and they're always focused on a personality and it's very interesting that shows, you know, making that very same argument now the impeachment if we recall was about the idea that the wage President had been involved in a quid pro quo was the concern right that the president had made a phone call to Vladimir zelinski the president of Ukraine and had asked him to do something untoward and that is to investigate the bidens. Okay, well fair enough and if it was untoward, I guess that would be a problem. But if the bidens were off, maybe it wouldn't be such a problem. So Dick Morris and if I don't remember who Dick Morris is Dick Morris is he was a an advisor to the clintons. He was a strategist in the White House who helped them put them all together their dick Morris weighed in on what he thought the impeachment was sending committee report just released makes clear that the impeachment proceedings the whole hoax was basically designed as a cover for Hunter vitamins thievery Wow, so the entire impeachment hoax was designed as a cover for a hundred bucks and savory. So in other words Trump started asking questions over in Ukraine that Trump wasn't supposed to ask no one is supposed to ask us Trump wasn't supposed to win and to make sure that investigation didn't move forward. They created the impeachment thing and made the ukrainians in a position where they were like hands off on us politics. We know anything to do with this stuff. We're just going to stay away from it and turns out not to have been the best decision on the part of the Democrats. It looks like the impeachment obviously didn't work. And so now we have Senate investigations and a whole bunch of people have weighed in on this and so these aren't any particular order here is Doug Collins now Senator Johnson who is running the committee and we're going to hear from Senator Johnson a little later in the show, but Senator are dead. Senator Congressman Collins ended up on Fox Business and was responding to Senator Johnson saying that because of this whole thing Biden's unfit for office wage. Here's Doug Collins. We never hear Senator. Ron Johnson talk like this his chair of Homeland Security in the Senate. He said that the basically what he's finding and seeing will show that Joe Biden is unfit to be president. What are you hearing? That would have Senator Johnson say a big bombshell like that. I think the same thing that we've been hearing list for the last year-and-a-half when we started seeing what I mean, if you watch the videos of the last president self as he actually, you know, we had this all controversy of quid pro quo. We actually know that the Joe actually did that he actually demanded stuff for this prosecutors firing. He actually said if you don't get it, you're not get the money we again, we've went through this a lot of this and so I'm glad the senator using subpoena power and using everything else. He has at his disposal. The majority in the Senate is now coming forward. We're glad to get this out and report. It is something wrong. All over to you and something long that many of us have seen from day one as it began to come out and I do believe that Joe Biden is unfit to be president. I believe that Joe Biden has many reasons to be unfit for president. But this right here is something that corruption comes out of this. I believe this report is going to show in the bombshell. The center Johnson is talking about is the simple fact that America is seeing that not only is he not fit to be president. He doesn't need to be close to being considered to be president..

But then then you'll know we also talk that we would like them to be happier. This is the goal and it's a good goal but the approach. Could it also have some drawbacks. Meiomi Moland is an anthropologist at American University and the author of can big bird fight terrorism a case a study of Sesame Street in Nigeria. She says Sesame Workshop's own research suggests it's important to be direct with kids. I think one of the main findings things is that parents and educators. Don't talk enough with children about race and poverty and difference and tolerance and religion and all these different front things and and that we should be talking with children more explicitly about about these topics so that children don't just see these topics as taboo but mullins says is that can raise another issue because those over messages are often controversial. Take for example Sesame Street in Nigeria. Saying that we should be friends with Christians. If we're Muslims and we should be friends with Muslims or for Christians you know those messages may lead parents or families have to believe that this show is trying to push them into to some sort of tolerance or coexistence that might not be feasible or tenable given the current conflict in the country. And that's the dilemma. That's unlikely to go away anytime soon. Especially in sesame workshop's Newest International co-productions one first Syrian refugees in Jordan. Lebanon the non Iraq and Syria and one for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh for the world. I'm Sarah Birnbaum. Northern India is choking air. Pollution return to critical levels. This week us the room to Listener Deli with her nine year old son and doing what she can to keep your family safe with this kind of pollution outside. Unfortunately we have to keep all the windows and doors shut completely so no one is allowed to go out even for a minute because because we are using the APP so you know. I can't allow today to come inside us. To is one of many people. Davina Gupta spoke with in Delhi for the latest edition of the BBC's his work life. India program Davina. Thanks for being with us. So I started seems as lucky. She's got an air purifier. But I imagine there are many more families without Those kinda luxuries. How are they coping? That's right Margot you talking about. About nineteen million people who are living in Delhi rounding areas. I was on the streets earlier. This it's morning and trying to talk to people who can't afford the air purifier. Can't afford to protect themselves. And what do they do so one of the two drivers who told me that He just goes is about his Business through the day he tries and wrap his up face with a clot when he's around the city But he says by the end of the day he's scoffing offing severely those who are also on the streets and going about in the buses or walking around. They are just living their lives as from nothing has happened. Because they say that we can't onto the Do much about it. And they don't have a mass they don't have any other alternative but to face it took the others little autorickshaws in the driver's basically are exposed to air all day. Long Long. That's right. It's formerly them. But even the drivers of the buses or the ride hailing APPs which are quite popular these days because the city government has ensured a car rationing system which means that you can only take out your cars and alternative days are so the government here has come out with policy of distributing Free Moss special children and they've also closed school for the second time this week earlier this week I spoke with a high school student. I used vile about how he's dealing with. This high. The level of the number of studies showing is staying in Delhi's equal into smoking twenty cigarettes every day. You really want to. Do you want to stay here. So the input thing being here would decrease doc dimension five years of my life expectancy if I stay on another year again the ability to leave as young men was talking about. That's the kind of the domain of the wealthy. What are people demanding right now? What does the government actually doing? So there is great response action in place right now in which the construction in has stopped industries which are seen as polluting industries like brick manufacturing units. There have been shot farmers who've been burning stubble. which is the leftover crop for the next season? which is also adding onto the pollution? Having us not to do so in fact some of them have been even penalized and this is some sort open response from the government which is now declared an air health emergency in Delhi as we were getting ready for this interview Vina. I heard you coughing a little bit. Have you been affected by listen. How are you coping? Yes I have been because my job entails means that I have to go and speak to. People have been using our mosque to protect myself. But it's really difficult to talk to people with that mosque. I must say you're at a good spot Marco bickers you're at a place where air quality index. It's down fifty fifty to four PM. Two point five which are the tiny particulate matter and in Delhi. It's four hundred times worse so just imagine if you're a new room which which is full of dust and fog can you breathe and that's the kind of difficulty that people are facing here. Davina Gupta is host of the BBC's Work Life if India program speaking with us from Delhi Dean thank you very much and take care. Thank you back now to our top story the former. US Ambassador to Ukraine. Marie Ivanovich testified at the House. Impeachment inquiry today trump pushed the veteran diplomat out of a role as ambassador back. In the spring. The World Matthew Bell was following today's proceedings and is here with me. What is your your biggest takeaway here? Matthew Ivanovich is a experienced foreign service officer with more than thirty years of experience a stellar record by all accounts But suddenly in April. She explained today. The trump White House decided to remove her as ambassador in Ukraine. And it happened during a late night. Emergency phone call from Washington They told her you have to come home immediately because of security concerns. She told the house impeachment Investigators today that this came after a smear campaign was led by Rudy Giuliani. The president's personal lawyer picked up by right wing media outlets But the point she wanted to make in all this this was that this is about more than just her career she says Ivanovich said that this is really about a failure of US foreign policy he planning. How could our system fail like this? How is it that foreign corrupt interests could manipulate our government which countries interests Are served when the very corrupt behavior we have been criticising is allowed to prevail such conduct undermines the US exposes our friends in widens. The plainfield for autocrats President Putin so matthew I did trump want Ivanovich gone. And let's let's remember that it with Yovich. That trump mentioned in the phone call. He had with Ukraine's President Vladimir Zelinski. Right the phone call. That was the one on July twenty fifth where trump in the call refers to Jonah Vich as bad news quote unquote said. She was going to go through some things today. The Democrats lawyer his name name is Daniel Goldman asked Ivanovich how she felt when she read those words in that transcript from president trump. I didn't know what to think but I was very concerned. What were you concerned about? She's going to go through. Some things didn't sound good sounded like a threat. Did you feel threatened so we heard earlier in the show today. How President Trump was actually attacking ianovich on twitter at the same time? She was giving her testimony in Congress. Did did the Republicans in the inquiry. Follow the the president's tone not really many of the Republicans went out of their way to thank the ambassador for her service they praised her Ranking member Devin Nunez. Though at one point said that Uganda which was actually not in fact a material witness but that her situation at the State Department could have been handled at human resources. One one thing that Republicans did bring up. Repeatedly were allegations that Ukraine was meddling in the two thousand sixteen election and that trump was right right to be concerned about that Ivanovich did not give credence to the story line at one point she reported that. US intelligence agencies believe. It's Russia that meddled in two thousand sixteen. I'm not Ukraine. One more thing that Republicans brought up Hunter Biden's role on the board of that energy company. Charisma here's some of what Ah John Radcliffe from Texas was asking about and do you think that that raises a potential concern or conflict of interest that the vice president the United States was ordering the firing of the prosecutor in charge of a company that has been identified as one that is substantially corrupt. Actually I don't think that The the view that Mister Chauhan was not a good prosecutor general fighting corruption. I don't think that had anything to do with the brief case so just to be clear. You're gonNA vich saying there. That Biden wanted Ukrainian prosecutor fired. Be precisely because he wasn't fighting corruption. Thank you very much.

A comedian is a leading contender for president of Ukraine just one unusual detail about elections coming up there this weekend. The BBC's Jonah Fisher is following this election. He's in eastern, Ukraine. Let's start with a comedian candidate Vladimir Zelinski you've met him. What's his deal? Why is he running for president? Yeah. It's a pretty extrordinary story at flood means Lindsey has got no political experience whatsoever. An extraordinary thing about him is that he's become famous here in Ukraine to a television program and in that television program he plays the president on the TV show. He's a principled honest, president doing the right thing. And his message on the campaign trail is basically being if you vote for me, if I become president, you're pretty much gonna get what you see in that TV series, and for now and the way it's looking according to the opinion polls, it looks like that message is working and we could be set to see at the comedian become president. What do you cranium like about his TV show that suggests they're going to like him as president? I think firstly Ukrainians are ready for a change. They want something different the other contenders in this race. Aw, how he put it from from the old school of Ukrainian politics, the image. That has been very much project. By Mr. skin is campaign team is that he's fresh-faced. He's different. He hasn't really been very specific about any policies. Indeed, many people say he doesn't really have a very solid grasp on on policy matters toll. So Alinsky is the splashy outsider in the lead. But there's also president Petra Pora Shangqiu running for reelection and former prime minister Yulia Timoshenko in the race to what are they campaigning on? What we've got a massive ballot paper rushing. There are thirty nine candidates. But yeah, you've you've mentioned the top three there. So Petra shaneco. He's the the current president of Ukraine. He's basically campaigning on the platform that you need an experienced guy like myself to face off with Russia because Ukraine is effectively fighting a war with Russia in eastern, Ukraine. So why take a chance on any of these other people Yulia Timoshenko? Well, if you've been following Ukrainian politics at all over the last ten years, you might remember as she's a woman. With a very distinctive blonde hair. Braided has she's been a leader of protests in the past so g is trying again, but she's failed twice as a presidential candidate. And I think people see have very much just being outside or out of the top three Jonas step back for a moment. And tell us how you see it on the ground in eastern Ukraine, you're close to the front line. I mean, are you feeling where you are? We're not feeling where we are. I mean, the overwhelming feeling in eastern Ukraine when you come here is that it's all a bit sad really that the young people have left that you're left with old people who can't really go anywhere else. The conflict itself is not particularly hot. You can hear gunfire you go right up to the front lines. The both sides do shell each other. But nobody is trying to win this war to take territory to make any sort of decisive impact it just rumbles on two or three people tend to die every week here. It's not a war that got gets a lot of international attention, but it is very much an unresolved war and the whole process around trying to negotiate some sort of solution. So what's happening on? It's really gone nowhere of the last few years. So it's particularly bleak for the people who live here because many of them have got friends on the other side in rebel controlled. Territories who is very hard for them to see and deal with family on the other side, very hard. For for them to cross and golden see them too. So. It's got a it's got a. Sadness to here because the therapy is whatever happens in this election. It really pays that that there's very little prospect of of this conflict coming to an end anytime soon, the BBC's John officials speaking with us from eastern Ukraine.
