1:18 pm
depending on it going to be a factor there are different buried bigger is that contribute to their consumption and one of the perhaps common problems is also if for debility are you friend through practice across the countries and leading a country there are some as this is before you put those that are currently in fortunately neglected using food for example whole grain and now it's these are not poor also a routine date in many countries actually for knox the meat in many countries is very close to zero and you suggest that basically no decent improving the consumption we need to basically work on interventions that at least healthy to do the people i call support. this is as you know it's got a roundup of the top stories now libya's u.n.

1:22 pm
a much criticized billionaire businessman with a presidential term already under his belt ukrainians will choose in a decisive paul in less than three weeks time volodymyr is a landscape is famous for his role in servant of the people hit show in which he plays a schoolteacher who improbably becomes ukraine's president now he wants to lead in real life in the first round of the country's presidential election on sunday he finished way ahead of incumbent petro poroshenko and in a display of made for t.v. shelmon ship selenski is urging his rival to debate and he have a lympics stadium. i'm waiting for you here at the olympic stadium out of respect to at least one third if ukraine citizens you must publicly say that debates will be held not with the puppets of the kremlin or an oligarchy not with a supporter of progress and rebels not with a piece of trash and not with a clown but with ukrainian presidential candidates to me is the landscape like i
1:23 pm
give you twenty four hours think about it. to put it the being the president and commander in chief is not a game it is not a desire to be likeable debates are held not for the sake of a show at the stadium but if you want to be at the stadium let it be at the stadium i am waiting for you vladimir is one which. has been thrown out for more on the election and the issues around it we are joined from kiev by peter dickinson he's a research fellow at the atlantic council and the publisher of business ukraine also in the ukrainian capital. she is a lawyer at the anti corruption action center and similar say is an al-jazeera reporter who has covered the ukrainian elections she joins us from doha welcome everyone to this stream peter i want to start with you we saw that video there what can you tell us about the law to me. and why he was so successful in the first
1:24 pm
round of this presidential election. well essentially he is. the establishment. he is fighting against the status quo the greatest strength he has no experience is his greatest weakness is well known but at this stage in the campaign he represents the ultimate protest. i think bill's a little strange that he is not simply popular because he played the president he been a major celebrity in ukraine for around twenty years now and is a household name known to everyone very well like we've seen is a very charming charismatic son because i'm not an unknown sprung from the you know the fringes of buffy's great strength not involved in the political environment and a t.v. show about being a huge part of the campaign facially the show in the show. and then every man credited who has the system which is betrayed to the sheriff in
1:25 pm
a grotesque mounted by a craven and you crazy part of it is pretty. but in the show it is a pair of extreme scenes with all the. most incredibly relieved and. well he did all the protests will be there you say his ultimate protest he represents the protest vote what does that protest about look like what did those people care about we have a tweet from eugene petrusha saying foreign policy keeping russia had bade the rule of law widespread corruption are key the economy's not growing much but key issues are lack of confidence high interest rate society is less enthusiastic and more tired compared to the euro maidan period. when you see that tweet obviously there are many other issues at stake does that ring true as to what these people are upset about in ukraine. it to say true that people in
1:26 pm
ukraine have long waited long after the euro my don't protest for changes to start happening but five years have passed and they have not seen a single achievement they are saying that the end to corruption bureau was set up but teeth were not given to the body so your option court has not been set up and but i should go keeps promising that he's going to get serious on tackling corruption but his time is up and he still has nothing to show for it and the only . woman today he can speak it off is he is. like strong speeches against russia and the people who support him are actually. finding it hard to find anything else to praise here they're saying that he's our guarantor for peace but they acknowledge that he has not done anything to improve ordinary
1:27 pm
ukrainians lives so i wanted to pick up on that elaborating a little bit more with some voices of some of those people i want to share with our audience what a few residents of kiev had to say the day after the first round of voting had a listen. and we still think of her from my point of view this election as a form of mass protest because we will choose where we will be in ten to fifteen years and what country our children and grandchildren will live that is why i appreciate the selection for the thing you're. using and of course i'm satisfied we voted for selenski everything is cool in fact it was expected that there would not be push and go in the second round it was expected that it would be yulia timoshenko everything went not bad we expect that everything will be fun so. don't make you well as usual we are hopeful but we do not know what the result will be but there is hope of course selenski is leading we hoped it would be another
1:28 pm
candidate hopefully everything will be. so she mentioned we do not know what the result would be and that last comment there one thing that might help us figure out what will happen in the next round of this election is the debate so we saw the very top of the show the challenge there from zelinsky to have a debate with the incumbent president and the incoming president has picked it up and said all right let's go we're doing in the olympic stadium we're going to debate this what do you make of this whole scene there and what this debate might bring. we hope to be the real brain and a.d.'s it at last to the conversation because currently they have a situation when current president he's talking about. some. pasta achievements. but people know that
1:29 pm
a lot of the situations are good in paper but they took too long time to be made and they are mad about broken promises about see if the reforms that have been postponed and the demand of justice was not brought to the people so they were up and they project every scene to save and as their. challenger to that so now that it was the first during the first earth now they hope to hear it ideas from the both candidates what are they planning to do because during the last month his boss poroshenko and selenski employed him to reduce the dependent jordan are urgently stability in their debates. so now people who want to speak well they will speak i would imagine and that's why the new round of elections is happening but we also have people speaking directly to us and some people at length
1:30 pm
on twitter we have a thread here i'm going to just kind of give you the highlights anastasio saying you know they're aware the youth there in ukraine that poroshenko is corrupt and has faults but most people she knows ended up voting for him anyways because he's the least of all evils then she goes on to say his voters don't trust go usually they consider her a betrayer of the country a phoney a friend of the russian someone who is corrupt and who would sell her country in a heartbeat but then under stress there goes on to say zelinsky is also not trusted her friends consider him to be a clown who just like trump started a joke they got way out of and they consider him to be a pro russian and they also make a big deal out of the fact that apparently he doesn't speak ukrainian very well now tamil i see that you're smiling and peter you're nodding to me why don't you get your reaction to understand. it's interesting that people say that asking is going to tackle corruption and he he's our whole but actually nobody has any
1:31 pm
indication of how he is going to be able to achieve it he has no nothing to show to prove that he's like capable of dealing with such an important issue and he tackled corruption only in a sitcom and as an actor like he has a can convince people that he cares about corruption and he's a able to tackle it but actually if it was just on t.v. it was like part of a show a sitcom so people like seem to have believed him just because he was playing a role often and the corruption buster so. and people who have an anecdote about people who. even though they don't believe in him like i was talking to a mind on protester in hot give and she said she was going to like close her eyes and vote go we have like
1:32 pm
a heart full of shame because. she was saying that i really don't believe in him he. disappointed everybody who was standing on my done like a five years ago but they're like i you look at the ballot and i see nobody else and she was saying that she was actually each telling off her father for saying that he would support for her saying go and then weeks later she and she realize that she also doesn't have any other alternatives so i want to illustrate what you're saying there peter i'll give this to what i just wanted to break in briefly to illustrate what tim of the was saying there with this gallup poll from not too long ago this is march twenty first it was it was published world low of nine percent of ukrainians confidence in government you can just see the stats rate here ukrainian confidence in government is among the lowest in the world and there you see it there peter. yeah i'll only the issue of that and the.
1:33 pm
manifesto are all black all credentials a lot and i think this is a key part of it's accepted that he everything to everyone and he can be whatever you want him to be to the degree because he doesn't say exactly what he represents and he's not clear about his policies so at this stage. a lot of voters are able to say well i like him and he often why mitt will because he doesn't like me it's all about me didn't say what he represents and people are hoping that in the next few weeks you'll be a little clearer about your god actually say what he represents but. this is why that is why the scene is such an important event within the campaign how small certainly would only be in a presidential campaign my stuff in the binion is that the debate will happen because i don't think that people race being exposed really all the math but i don't want to leave how we say face he's the wind that hands and this is a tip that he brought the challenge where no one looks like he can actually actually not not true the divine is is part of ukraine
1:34 pm
a political tradition it always happen but it's expected to happen there was a lot of noise immediately after the first round saying ok now we're not going to debate the legacy they came out with a video proposal saying that in the in the full tank and he gave a little east of all dewy persian curry to ex-wives that a lot of that frankly was quite. forward of him quite the doctors among them i drive at least among them with the suggestion that he is a drug addict too and i know it was quite provocative stuff and well the assumption that the only person who would say no question here is yes so today the libby came out with that second video in which he said ok let's make him a shake. candidate the moderator of the did by now of course he was. genuine democracy but the other so it looks like he's trying to change the mood to go public with. to use a stadium bathroom because he doesn't want to go on stage to speak he doesn't want
1:35 pm
to be exposed and. shouted to the solution he is this and you. well speaking of shattering allusions peter as you were outlining some of those facts right there it was impossible for me not to think of a parallel that exists here in the u.s. not to let link president trump to the lansky but it does seem that with the provocative social media youth angle that there are similarities the reason i bring this up is we have a live comment coming in on you tube from kiev stuff saying i'm astonished that in times of hybrid war with russia my people is voting for an inexperienced pro russian comedian with that in mind i'm curious i mean do you believe that he is pro russian is there evidence to suggest that beyond the poor ukrainian accent supposedly. the spring training action is base it's that he's cold russian from russian speaking region. it's not their biggest claim of he was.
1:36 pm
there because they used to he worked for russian like intertainment market a lot he had worked in business in russia and until recently actually and he was quite successful in russia. he's never said any seen against. russian government. so he also has that in common with president trump. no probably i didn't i then know how much i don't from work in russia and i was it was a joke i said of him and asked if you thought he was as it is he was never complimentary. and i've never heard that recently in the recent months in compliment very complimentary russia and which he why do you like hard points. about he's next to apps what would be his policy and to decide on the war in the
1:37 pm
east and pirated how to return creamier to crane so he would say he speaks and it is he's going to openly about the about. you know he doesn't pull his punches as you know there is a clear there is a pro russian camp in ukraine still and they are very they employed in the kind of ambiguous language that the russians themselves use about conflict resolution speaks very openly about russian more about russian attack about roger is an aggressor. but he does come round working very closely roger he is a russian speaker i think also for a lot of ukrainians he's made a lot of jokes about ukraine in ukraine i did this in ukraine the language in his career as a comedian which is not what i was he doesn't sit very well someone who now wishes to become the head of state there was one general told couple of years ago which actually might be relevant to the discussion. in which he compared ukraine to
1:38 pm
a porn actress or cross that she's in front of a lot of russians and today it is his campaign team came out and they tried to down this you know to downplay this and all of you didn't who played a prostitute you said ukraine is a pornstar is this this does sound better but of course at times a comedian that is fine as the presidential candidate let's talk to the quite questionable of course and so of course we cannot talk about russia or bring up russia without than mentoring also the ongoing conflict in the. more because among the things that voters say are important to them is this conflict of this war the fighting corruption and also the economy but i want to talk about the war a little bit because election observers have said that bhatt is one of the things that people are worried about and they say that many ukrainians have been left out of this political process so they can't even vote on that topic not least because of the conflicts i have a look at this clip from monday a nato official we cannot ignore the election took place
1:39 pm
in a very difficult security context thousands of ukrainians ukrainians have lost their lives in armed conflict initiated by russia russia illegally and next to crimea by force it continues its military aggression in eastern ukraine this means voters in certain parts of eastern ukraine couldn't participate in the elections so it's about i know you were on the border you spoke to voters you spoke to nonvoters what were people telling you. it seems that dyleski has a strong base there because one of one of the reasons is that he is not associated with them i don't protest so russia doesn't have to hold a grudge against him. like i like put a strangle because he has spoken so strongly against russia that he has no chance
1:40 pm
of reopening dialogue with the moscow where i says that it is a new face so he actually has a chance of. breaking the deadlock that. have happened with moscow and i feel that production citizens ukraine have a hope that he's going to be able to change the status quo and like her example i was on. the town of mellowest which is divided by a border fence that was with toppled by russia in two thousand and eighteen and people's lives changed overnight they were able to leave. harmony with russia and they have families divided now with this fence so they cannot visit each other because this fence was put there and they blame the porter sango and my town protests for it and so now they believe that the lenski. person who
1:41 pm
could actually talk to moscow and change this situation that the border fence situation they want this the border fence to be taken away so that they can resume their intertwined life between ukraine and russia in this town and it seems that that you for single phase there is going to be no change for ordinary people living along the border with russia to miller that's certainly one perspective that we keep hearing online but we also received a video comment that kind of focuses on the youth perspective there are some reports in the country the. there's a record number of people leaving the country as many as thirty nine percent in polling say they would leave and never come back so where does that leave the youth well alexander are about gives us a tease listen to what he had to say the biggest challenges for you within your cream is in the room and the young people are on defense to move from the country
1:42 pm
or. those who would choose to stay. there trying to go right know for mysteries and ski because he can be who was targeting the use inside their hearts are within the true you creation within the better money within the better life and the youth also in the. system they didn't build the growing up in sight but the rule is that no a lot of people who want to put it through this time they don't want this system with a more computer i should mention that that statistic about thirty nine percent who would leave and never come back was a gallup poll but what do you make of that perspective on the youth there in the country. yes there's been a significant brain drain in really. around around you know the song is not with as many as two million ukrainians going home and for employment some of it
1:43 pm
