2:04 am
has been selling arms to saudi arabia we will keep that pressure up we won't stop and that's because there are now so over six thousand eight hundred civilians who have lost their lives due to that bombing and it is outrageous that the british government continues to say you know you maintain the british royal blood on their hands i do there and that the british government is ignoring the international arms trade treaty a treaty that it was a champion of not so long ago in a drive to continue selling these arms five billion pounds worth of arms since the onset of the conflict that is seven times as much is being spent on aid in the man and the people of yemen the civilians of you men are suffering we know the hunger is rife we know that those bombs have been dropped all on families on civilian areas mosques factories weightings abbas with forty children slaughtered law school based so these this is why we continue to campaign this this

2:12 am
have an average of twenty five cases per week so there is a decline but health care workers know that attacks on treatment facilities remain a constant threat and one that could reverse the progress that's been made in tackling the disease carthy a local so the young al jazeera. mozambique's president says more than a thousand people are now feared dead in the aftermath of a cycling that swept southern africa the official death toll across the three countries is currently more than one hundred twenty international red cross as the tropical storm destroyed ninety percent of one major port in mozambique farmiga miller has the latest from there be ira. up to half a million people in the city of bear have been affected by the psych loan that it whole days ago power lines were knocked down and people here just beginning to try and pick up the pieces but their efforts also being questioned by ongoing rain it's
2:13 am
expected that rain will continue throughout the week people here say they have not seen anything like it the city is devastated aid organizations a calling the off to match that is the devastation the destruction of caused by the psych loan horrifying the biggest challenge for many of these we're going to aid organizations is that they're unable to access or rather the extent of the devastation floodwaters continue to rise especially off to a dam bust in the last a day trees have been knocked on this billion area in the city where trees haven't been uprooted power lines knocked down and many homes destroyed now aid organizations that have a rived in barrow in the last day or two and that's only after the. was reopened after it was closed say they have a mammoth tossed ahead of them and the effects of the psych load on short term
2:14 am
rebuilding the city helping the people affected is going to take a lot of time and also mozambique the storm battered neighboring zimbabwe cutting off the eastern district of tree mommy mommy i want to answer but it's not from your finger. a big problem is that a lot of the bridges and roads in the area are being cut off or destroyed by the flood waters a lot of people are stuck in the car move so this is an alternative and people in the local community are coming together using big rocks to try and create different growth so people can pass through analysis areas people have been stuck some of them for days but the situation in some parts of the region like my new money for example we are told that some boarding schools have been cut or sold and they are stranded the army is trying to reach them but of course that depends on how good the weather is with the helicopters fly and reads the children who've been stranded
2:15 am
they also hundreds of people stuck at a hotel who were able to walk the when the floods came and they sought shelter there but they need things like food blankets and clothes and they say time is running out the problem for aid workers the military anyone trying to reach people who need help is that the roads are just not possible at the moment so the community are trying as much as they can to take it upon themselves to make sure that people who need to cross over and help people who are stuck are able to do that of course it's going to be a long process it's all manual as you can see it in on the scenes here so who knows how long it will take these people to get the work done meanwhile people are lined up past the road in their cars because they can pass hoping and praying that this process a slow painful review process in. the paris police chief has been fired and the government will shut down any further yellow vest protests environmental groups

2:18 am
apparently they're trying to send it to india and of course russia and succeed a lot of people outside of what we're being told that there's already what is known here is over compliance people that are afraid of buying but when and all because of the consequences that something like this could have with the united states and angering their night in states in the meantime the opposition leader flung wide his own said that he was going around the country and trying to get people to march towards the pile of computer. you know if that's where you go. that you would give an enormous demonstration that's why don't fish and you know why you don't is trying to do when i was really generate more tension in this country.

2:21 am
al-jazeera up next though it's inside story. exactly five years ago russia annexed crimea and began a conflict with ukraine that's claimed thirteen thousand lives. but what has russia gained apart from a host of western sanctions against it will that deter president putin from flexing its military muscles again this is inside story.
2:22 am
hello and welcome to the program and has a monday the eighteenth of march marks five years since russia annexed the crimean peninsula from ukraine western countries condemned the move and imposed economic sanctions against moscow and coinciding with the anniversary the e.u. the u.s. and canada have introduced some more of putin remains defiant he's not returning crimea to ukraine and has visited the region to join in the celebrations and open to new power stations the ukraine's foreign minister says the international community will continue to support ukraine stance on crimea. crimea was taken away from crimea ends their homeland was taken away from them it is well understood that the international community will never recognize this we feel pain every day for this but for those ukrainians who back russia have been celebrations that was released about surprise that it is
2:23 am
a great very special day for me i feel proud for russia and crimea thank god we are united. a crimea was gifted to ukraine by soviet leader nikita khrushchev in one thousand nine hundred fifty four when ukraine became independent in one nine hundred ninety one russian president boris yeltsin agreed it could remain in ukraine the region has always been of political and strategic importance to both moscow and kiev it lies on a peninsula between the black sea and the sea of as of and has a russian speaking majority but many crimean support closer ties with the rest of europe crimean crisis was sparked when ukraine's then president viktor yushchenko which turned down a trade deal with the e.u. and accepted a bailout from moscow and three months of street protests followed leading to janak overtures overthrown russia refused to recognize the new government in kiev and within days seize control of the peninsula of crimea referendum considered illegal
2:24 am
by the west was held in crimea where a majority voted to join russia fighting between ukrainian forces and russian backed separatists began in eastern ukraine and although peace accords were signed in for every twenty fifteen tensions have remained. let's bring in our guest now to talk more about this in kiev we have in point our model of he is an exiled russian politician who was the only member of the state duma to vote against the annexation of crimea in two thousand and fourteen in moscow international relations and security analyst mark sloboda and in kiev as well via skype alexei hard on a professor at the international university of key of more academy welcome all three of you so if i could start with you then five years on how would you assess the state of affairs in crimea is a better off now that the russians are in control. or unfortunately everything that
2:25 am
we hear is about five years ago that actually happens. we see of or the expectational so for people that share a theory they fall fuels. yeah they live outside any particular war zone but at the same time they are isolated there we just have more streets significantly of the expected to be out of the sure resume is also will be a rush to ensure mle tourism because there is no international tourism anymore in the thing that. for them right now is that you can ukraine still there is a couse off of the revolution so you are at least outside of careless and that's the only thing that to some to go alexei had and what's your assessment of how crimea has fared over the last five years. well i don't think that we should
2:26 am
actually analyze it in economic terms because you cannot get the arms i seems that everybody lost creamier lost in the konami terms because it's under sentients so-called caribbean package ascensions russia host russia was also because of sanctions but more importantly russia lost because it violated important international agreements and i believe we should need to start from cent because in ninety ninety four ukraine refused to have nuclear arsenal which was asserted largest insuperable in that it turned for the guarantees of its territorial integrity and this guarantees we're given by united states and the russians so russia violated russia waylaid and also russian ukrainian treaty overnight in ninety seven and it means actually what happened with craney it was
2:27 am
a first annex a ship in the euro after all war two so basically for your listeners and. if you are starting to stand what happened with korean media it's like saddam hussein who seized kuwait he said this is out there. and this is exactly the argument which brutally used he said this is our debt this so despite all the international laws i season and first see that night russian military presence there it was a total lie he said knows there are no russian soldiers there but sent in the year he bought the recognised so i believe what we when we are talking about cranio in it don't understand that this is an oversight role of the whole international order and that's why as ascensions keep it gainst against russia we also need to remember the position of cranium to us because crimean and that does is a native people as
2:28 am
a native people of great media think wanted to stay with you crazy but not russia didn't take it into account and now you have one hundred political prisoners of crimea and that does ukrainians who are in the russian who are in the russian prisons you have to venti it premium class ective is who were killed twenty were disappeared so what russia installed in crania is actually kind of that there with their ian continuation of that though there in the history this is a total suppression of the people whatevers their ethnic origin is ukrainian russian or cranium tucker all right matsumoto i suspect that your take on all of this is going to be somewhat different from what we've just heard from india and alexei what is your view. yeah i can't really agree with about anything they said
2:29 am
first of all full disclosure my wife is crimea and my mother in law lives in some for opal i'm in crimea every few months and we have family all across east ukraine hark off odessa and done by us so first of all the majority of crimea and seventy two percent by the most recent polls disagree completely with our previous two guests assessment and they say their lives are better ninety three percent of crimea and about the same as during the original reunification referendum continue to support reunification this is confirmed by polls international polls pew gallup j.f.k. it shows clearly the will of the crimean people secondly our colleague alexei brought up international order and the budapest memorandum he might have mentioned that the budapest memorandum not only guarantees ukraine's territorial integrity
2:30 am
but also non interference in its affairs and certainly the openly west backed my done putsch which violently and unconstitutionally overthrew the last legitimate democratically elected ukrainian government meets that and render that treaty move at that time and russian support for reunification continues near eighty percent so this side of ng both crimea ends and russians are happy to be reunified in their lives have gotten in crimea and measurably better i want to bring up the point though moxley botha that alexei made earlier there about president putin's denial initially that there were any russian troops in crimea and then much later pretty much the acknowledged it and that there is there was a deficit of trust there with president putin and this is one of the issues with with with the with the breaking of the international order what do you say to that
2:31 am
. well i think it's a blatant mis understanding of the situation in crimea because in crimea at the time of the west back don putsch which overthrew the ukrainian government there were some twenty five thousand russian troops by treaty at russian naval bases in the crimea so of course there were russian troops in crimea so why did he deny them why did he deny to fess that what he denied is that russian troops were actively involved in arranging the referendum in the country this was done through largely through militias that were organized just like the putsch but talian were organized in the west of the country that overthrew the government in kiev he put them out of what's what what do you say to that. right i think the situational spiritual of yours the first fear we
2:32 am
hold this clearly of which i'm personally has come from that's the force lee the occupation happens and all of them the periphery of them the so-called true freedom there was the church currently it's irrelevant it's what are the walls what were the public opinion. in this regards because all this public opinion was formed after the actual occupation happens and that's the bottom line of this whole process saw in the situation where the troops would be withdrawn there would be more occupation more forum which we're on this territory currently when they leave in the controlled environments we know that russia is not the most democratic country on earth when you take somebody in love when you say it's a controlled environment in crimea what do you mean by that. time in the. police forces on these territory has dramatically increased we know about what's
2:33 am
already more than one hundred cases of political prisoners on the earth or do we know the struggle the first are holding against sort of the sort of war of obviously this is north of free chair authority in general in the rush. to floor speech six freedom of speech freedom will freak them out free will of communication with it within its control so people simply are freight are let's let's put that point back to mark's lebeau to then they've been numerous accounts from inside crimea crackdowns on that sentiment intimidation and so on for anyone who acts expresses disagreement with the with the majority view and particularly minority tars which is the point that alexei made earlier and what what rights groups are said is a system systematic harassment of to tara's going on in crimea since since the
2:34 am
russian annexation five years ago what do you say to that. yeah well first of all mr parnham are of can deny agency to the crimean people all he wants i think he should visit himself if he wasn't of course a wanted for fraud embezzlement and dereliction of duty in russia i guess he could probably not visit so freely with those criminal charges hanging over his head. but . if you don't want to believe international polls on the subject then. and if we assume that this as it was suggested was under some kind of coersion that the crimean people would all change their pint if there were no russians there the majority of the crimea as being ethnic russians that i guess we should result reverse the results of the west backed by don putsch government in kiev that happened just a few months beforehand and reverse that and see if the majority of ukrainians want
2:35 am
their government overthrow because polls at that time showed the majority of ukrainians were against them i died and this was repeated there in the three months of that overthrow of the government backed by the west and in kiev as for the crimea into two hours the crimean to tar's are not a political monolith polls by lovato the. independent pollster critical of the russian government has shown that a plurality of crimean to tar's feel that reunification was the right thing to do and this is a few cases of genuine extremists from the self declared self elected maj lease which does have a number of members on fortunately with extremist ties that is supported by the regime now in kiev and i think certainly the genuine cases of persecution of far less than the hundreds and hundreds of ukrainians that have been
2:36 am
picked off the street by the porch s.b.u. as u.n. reports and human rights watch of detail tortured in prisons often simply for being east ukrainians other times for making facebook or twitter posts if you want to see a real tall tall a tarion regime with extreme far right tendencies i'm afraid you have to look towards west backed kiev regime or let's put some of that back then to alexei in necchi what maslow botha was saying. about the issue of the targets in. crimea and that many of them were so-called extremists what do you say to that. well it's very difficult to have such a dialogue because what mr slobo is doing surely he is. it's not a right it was affects you know it's sort of all it's total kremlin propaganda you know total kremlin propaganda let's start with this so-called western beck which.
2:37 am
is the slope of the said yes this was a national movement and this is it was originated in the ukraine for they were aggressive of you could and mistake in the court which if you know he was ousted by ukrainian butland who he still wasn't constitution which unocal which waylaid and so it was well he was voted down by ukrainian parliament if you do not know his effects as if it now after said creamier was over q what if i didn't think yet what i like most was that. you be sure of ukraine but of you create starting from craney and sent eastern ukraine has nothing to do with domestic changes in the u.k. because again russia violated also international treaties which are are signed this is recognized by the international community. it's important also saw cold
2:38 am
calls you know which where there's a better o.c. ukraine is adding more chris it's recognized you cannot go against the facts we have free elections in ukraine it's not at all it's more kind of decision set you have in the russia you are smiling but certain sauza ukrainians are killed by russian soldiers and the russian veterans let me remind you also that cranium talk doesn't mind in forty four they will deploy it from cranium base started seeing west sent to safety in it in central asia. and that only possibility to have to come back it be it in the ninety ninety and even independent ukraine crimea movement was always known violent if you do not know most effects consols effect books she said eason but the which was elected then is elected by the whole
2:39 am
cranium but i want to bring him back and let it completely. and let me just let me just final it ends that the question is continuing its aggression not only in korea not only him eastern ukraine but also in the us of see actual inequality against the russian ukrainian he picked on or so see russia looks ukrainian ships not only naval ships but also commercial satellites that's who was an associate and finally ukraine your seat was big day and was shelled in util who is and twenty four ukrainian neighbors they are now in mosul in prison so basically what russia is doing in service of c. biarritz let's get you let's get a marxist kletzky much about his response that marc.
2:40 am
yeah i'm just flabbergasted by his assessment of so-called elections in ukraine as being democratic i mean this was the overthrow of a government the majority of ukrainians confirmed by polls reported in the pro-american american on kiev post said that the majority of ukrainians were against the might done that is it was a slim majority says fifty five percent. when you're here is can check that online at the kiev post in the polls recorded there themselves and i advise you to do the same if you are ignorant of the facts second of all we see elections by this west backed regime in kiev that is literally not only under the barrel of a gun but under fire of grad missile launchers the regime attempts to subjugate the people of east ukraine to their seizure of power in kiev we have that last
2:41 am
a ruling governments party has been lost rated in pogrom that of existence every leftist party in the country was banned right and you want to call these free actions but your stance is that the tick and free election is. this is a lie because you know your family and ukraine have been bad deal did not say that the you deny that. listen listen to ours and go wait for discussion because we have elections in the ukraine and elections in ukraine are free. to do what you have in the past and what you are defending you're defending by this issue so all in monza candidates and its public debate on television would be to present a defense of the left by mr models for example who was founder of a socialist party or if that so basically i would like to err i would like to err
2:42 am
again what you're saying is just you know what a beating can with propaganda what i already experienced on international assessment international a good position we had a lot of course i'm all sort of presenting so so will just go companies ok i want to get all of this to have you create them ok different just in the couple of minutes just in the couple of minutes we have left i want i want to get the word on this on what we've just been hearing and i want to ask you as well about this accusation from from moscow that what happened in ukraine. in two thousand and fourteen in which yannick which was. was removed was was not this was not a democratically elected government this is what this was essentially a putsch what do you say to that. well of course there was a revolution on the streets so or you know or the year we name or evolution
2:43 am
was called to give a new show on the fields evolution is called the cool so. it's sounds to name what happens on the street so for a key it was a cool. artificial overthrew a lot for the legitimate grow government i.e. my take on this is a revolution of the in ukraine is called to the. unsafe think that the storm is actually pretty accurate of what we are used for this division did move to move the digital to the elected parliament even after you know a quarter of the country he fled the country by the way absolutely on his own nobody was cheese and he was just fried for people on my dom that's why he decided to run and serve them unless some i was afraid of them too after what happened on my ukraine has worked that they knew prior president and so the president was
2:44 am
legitimately elected. almost cool forces. received little support actually will score was triste say that ukraine has been governed by nation lists but even the nation is so also with very little support for the king to the full fleshless in the elections of two thousand and fourteen received something like three percent of the votes and in the upcoming elections would be would see in just ten days from home or most likely the result would be woodward and that's all right that is going to have to be the last word. appreciate you all for coming in. and alexey thanks very much for being with us been a good discussion. thank you as always for watching you can see this program again any time by going to our web site. the discussion the facebook page that's facebook dot com forward slash a.j.
