C on January 23, 2023: summary
🔵 Martin Boudottonight will be hosted by Caroline Roux, director of the Planet Killers documentary series on France 5.
Martin Boudot is an investigative journalist. He started a documentary series on environmental criminals: Planet Killers. For the first time, Martin Budo and his team had access to the services of Interpol, which tracks criminals and mafiosos who plunder forests, oceans and try to hijack tax systems around the world…
Two documentaries from the series air tonight on France 5: “The Ivory King” and “Carbon Prince,” a look at the heist of the century. Cyril Astruc, nicknamed “Prince of Carbon”, has been wanted by Interpol and French authorities for almost 10 years. He is one of the leaders of this carbon quota fraud with 5 billion euros diverted from the treasuries of European nations. This 5 billion euros was diverted to finance the fight against global warming. Cyril Astruc, who is serving time in Switzerland, France or Belgium, has always managed to slip through the cracks.
According to the documentary, today environmental crimes are the fourth largest source of income for human traffickers, bringing criminals $250 billion a year.
In 2021, the National Police and Gendarmerie services recorded 31,400 environmental violations or violations, 7% more than in 2016.
Martin Boudot will return to the documentary series Planet killers, which follows the hunt for four environmental criminals wanted by Interpol and the new faces of environmental crime.
🔵 Ukraine: German tanks… and the French?
Ukraine has been asking for Western tanks for months. But while Ukrainian troops have been under increasing pressure on the eastern front for several days, Kyiv is no longer hiding its impatience and calling on its allies to “stop trembling in the face of Putin.” The message was received in Berlin and Paris. Germany “will not oppose” the delivery of “Leopard” tanks to Ukraine, the head of German diplomacy, Annalena Baerbock, clearly answered the question of LCI yesterday. Germany and its chancellor, who are reluctant to express their opinion on this issue to Poland and Finland, which can deliver these heavy tanks to Ukraine, need a green light for this, and the pressure against it is intensifying.
Poland will form a “small coalition” of countries willing to send tanks and other equipment if Germany does not agree to hand over Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, Poland’s prime minister said Monday. “Nearly a year has passed since the start of the war. Evidence of Russian war crimes can be seen on TV and YouTube. What else is needed for Germany to open its eyes and start acting according to Germany’s potential? Questioning Mateusz Morawiecki, he added that Poland will not remain passive as long as Ukrainian blood flows.
As for France and its Leclerc tanks, will they join the Ukrainian front? “I asked the Minister of Armed Forces to work on it. Nothing is excluded and it is truly appreciated collectively,” Emmanuel Macron said on Sunday. However, three criteria must be met for this decision, the president of the republic explained: “This is not an “escalator”, but it can provide real and effective support to our Ukrainian friends. The third criterion is not to weaken our defense capabilities, especially our critical structures. »
The issue of arms supply to Ukraine is at the center of discussions. On Friday, a meeting with all allies of Kyiv was held in Ramstein, Germany. The goal was to find solutions to help Ukraine quickly. Vladimir Zelensky expected a lot from this meeting, especially about Leopard tanks and other armored vehicles needed to launch a new offensive against Russian forces. But in the end, while Russia claimed to have made further progress near Bakhmut in eastern Ukraine and the Zaporizhzhia region in the south of the country, no deliveries were planned. The speaker of the Duma (the lower house of the Russian parliament) also warned in Telegram: “If Washington and NATO countries provide weapons that will be used to attack civilian cities and try to seize our territories, as they have threatened, this will lead to retaliatory measures with the use of more powerful weapons.” leads to (…) the supply of offensive weapons to the Kyiv regime will lead to a global catastrophe”.
Why is Germany reluctant to give Leopard tanks to Ukraine? What will the Chancellor of Germany, who is increasingly under pressure, decide? And the French Leclerc tanks? Finally, how do the Poles organize themselves against their Russian neighbors?
