5:02 pm
forces are also advancing on the nearby twin cities of savanna done yet. can that lip is to, this is chance from 3 directions. the only ukrainian controls that is left in the hands region have come under relentless bombardment. seeking safety under ground. for those still in several, danielle basements like this are the best hope of escaping the relentless brush and shelling. oh, they try their best to go on is normal, but they moved here is desperate. whatever i loss of serv. i know some of those churches, foreman's explosions. and so marshall, i just wonder i did just have to already when most crucial or mozilla, ukraine says 90 percent of the housing in the city has already been damaged by shelling. russia says it's artillery has been pounding. ukrainian military targets
5:03 pm
is part of its effort to risk control of the last part of the loo, hands green and in ukrainian hands. moscow is also trying to cut off supplies to the ukranian defenders striking this war house in the east and town of blackmore were a critical supply route to the besieged. cities begins so well. russian forces may be making advances. ukraine's determined resistance goes on the ukrainian military release. this footage is sad shows a strike on a russian position in a village just outside, severed on yeske. another signed up for moscow. it's offensive, his likely coming at a heavy cost. i corresponded rebecca recesses in cave. i asked her, why are you crying? struggling to fight off rushes advances while it really comes down to weapons. phil, i mean ukraine has as still has really high morale. it'll,
5:04 pm
of course be interesting to see how that is maintained if russia does keep advancing. but at the moment, you know, there is still a lot of positivity and good morale amongst churches, a lot of people who are willing to fight, but they really struggling on the weapons front. they're really outnumbered, you know, to, we're hearing reports of, for every ukrainian, a missile that's fired or artillery fire. they getting 10 to 20 and return their really outnumbered by heavy weaponry. which is why president zalinski has been calling for support from the national community since the beginning of this war. and those calls are getting louder now. i mean that they have received a lot of weapons by their they keep saying they need more and they certainly made everything that has been pledged to actually arrive, arrive in the country and arrive at the frontline so that they can attempt to hold back the russians and in fact, push them back, but at the moment they're not being able to do do so because they, they just being outnumbered when it comes to weapons and separately. so being there, since 2014 now appear to have joined in the fight. yes,
5:05 pm
that's right. it is, it has been clamber, it does appear that they are the ones that took that town of layman. they are a militia groups that have that fight for the russian backed forces in the de another done. it's a peoples republic and the l house. people's republic and they are joining in the fight as well. but on the other side, the ukrainian side, you have also a lot of people also volunteering to fight. but as i said before, it really the weapons that that, that new train needs. if they're going to be able to hold back these forces and you talked about the ukranian marolla president zalinski nightly address has struck. i'm also down beat an ominous tone on wednesday, how ukrainians are reacting to these message that but things are not going so well . there i mean obviously people are taking it quite badly. the quite
5:06 pm
worried everyone, you know, that you talk to him and ask is really worried over. they say that they, we have to, when we just have to, when they're there to think of the alternative just isn't worth thinking about. they're trying to remain positive, but things aren't looking good. this is a really decisive moment in this war. and people are extremely worried. what's next? they say, you know, if you give an inch, russia will take a mile. that seems to be the opinion of most people here. so they're really concerned that if they, if they do manage to take dom bassett, they will continue obviously, as they've promised to head further in the southern regions. those port cities of odessa mc alive. and of course, it has everyone here incredibly concert, even in k of which is of course, relatively common, almost kind of back to life as normally in certain respects. but they are incredibly worried about what's happening in the east of the country. and so people left in, don bass must be living in some terrible conditions. absolutely, i mean is nothing short of dia, down there, feel these people have already been living without utilities about electricity
5:07 pm
without running water already for weeks. now, they've been living under almost continuous, chilling, and that is just getting worse. it's intensifying these people that are running out of food medicines. they're living largely on the ground and shelters and bunk because with only, you know, moments of daylight in moments of car, we're hearing about most cities in the region. you know, really only having half an hour between shillings, so terrifying circumstances. the people that haven't been able to flatter or i the people that chose not to or people that just simply couldn't because their elderly or disabled. so, you know, imagine how they must be feeling. it must be a terrifying situation for those people down there. and it looks like it's not going to get better anytime soon. thanks rebecca rebecca, this is a keith a to captured russian soldiers have pleaded guilty as you're trying to 2nd to war crimes trial. they're facing up to 12 years in prison. charles was shoving so for the infrastructure in easton ukraine. this is just one of thousands of cases being
5:08 pm
investigated by ukrainian or authorities, and fresh evidence of war crimes is being found every day on extra port from max sandra contains images you may find distressing. deep inside the forest lies in anonymous grief. whoever chose this place didn't want anyone to find it. 2 months after the end of the russian occupation here, the body of a ukrainian man was on earth. his passport found here by the police say the death of the 5060 or 2 billing is linked to the russian aggression. nothing unusual these days the horde them or we found many of them and we will find more because a lot of people are missing. a lot of people died. so a lot of people who are buried on much lot those rules occult them. if the victims daughter is on the scene, she tells us her father went missing on the 18th of march during the russian occupation. it's neither, so she wishes i only know you won't doubt of his house and didn't return more. i
5:09 pm
think he went to feed the dog of the neighbor who had left. i didn't know where else he would have gone up with the water. snaky leaf mission limited. so far clues are limited as to what happened to her father. his passport shows red stains on it, possibly blood, boucher, hostile mill hairpin these towns have become synonymous with russian war crimes. were than a 1000 people were killed in boucher alone. a neighbouring her pin. the cemetery has changed in appearance with hundreds of freshly dug graves. to day streets and the area are lined with destroyed houses and shops all over town, reminders of terrific acts of violence like these cars attacked with weapons of war . so all the vehicles are see here are civilian vehicles that were used by people from butcher to try to flee from the russians and fully from the fighting. just like this vehicle over here. as we learned,
5:10 pm
it was struck in the back while trying to exit the town. it was hit by heavy machine gun fire and the bullets travel through the entire car hitting in the back . next thing at the fronts and killing at least one person inside. one of more than 3000 war crimes that are now being investigated in the key of region alone, an arduous task. but authorities are making some games. you know, we have already fixed that 300 percent from russia on the in key region that were mentioned here in our church. and we know for sure that they were from special forces from russian federation. they came here, we have their names, their names, also even their families the default, but with them being out of reach of ukrainian authorities. what are the prospects of bringing these men to justice? but it's where they couldn't to visit any, come to is a, have a possibility to be arrested. so anyway, you know that if somewhere they will come international court and additional police officers and maybe to pull the find all them and arrested. so we hope that they
5:11 pm
will find the punishment because they are guilty. so for fewer than 50 alleged russian war criminals remain ukrainian custody. and to pick up some of those issues with dr. jenny mathers who lectures in the department of international politics at aberystwyth university and the united kingdom. she's an expert in russian politics and security. a welcome to the w doctor. the atrocities that we've seen being committed by russian soldiers in ukraine. you think there was a likely it's a baby reactions of rogue individuals or evidence of something more systematic? well, i think there's probably a combination of the 2 factors because on the one hand, you know, it's very clear that soldiers, russian soldiers have been told that they're going into an area which you know, had been as an overrun nazis with fascist and terrible people. and so this is
5:12 pm
really shape their attitude towards the local people that they come into contact with. they are expecting bad things and in many ways. but also it may reflect, you know, individual senses of anger, frustration, you know, the upset at their own comrades being killed or injured in the fighting and wanting to take some kind of revenge on ukrainians that they need. so. so it's probably a combination of those 2 as russia times it's far now on the don't boss on the don bus region. i mean, we should, should we expect to see more of this sort of thing going on? well, i think this is been really characteristic of russia's approach to this war. it's, it's attitude towards the local ukrainians. you know, they are either being, you know, very badly abused, tortured, murdered, or, you know, taken away to russia to be interrogated and, you know,
5:13 pm
possibly relocated resettled somewhere against their will. so i think this is, this is a bigger pattern that we've seen everywhere that russia has established any kind of control over territory. so yes, it is a pattern that i would expect to see replicated any for the games that they make in the dumbass region. so you're an expert in russia, history and security because this, this sort of tactic, best scorched earth, is destroy everything in your path tactic would tend to indicate, but they don't expect there to be repercussions for these actions down the live. well, it's typical of the way that russia for the war in chechnya back to the point to or is in chechnya, particularly the 1st floor in the middle 990 s. it reflects, i think, in part it reflects the fact that the russian military is not
5:14 pm
a highly trained, well disciplined, professional force. they are, you know, with poorly trained. they're pretty motivated. they, many of them have a very limited understanding of what they meant to be doing there. and you know what, they are able to, to create a lot of damage. they're able to destroy things. and this has been the tactic to simply, you know, flatten everything and, and destroy and so there is not really necessarily to take over a functioning community and keep it running. it is simply to take territory and destroy any opposition. i'm so don't boss a couple of days ago i had ukrainian or she's talking about russia putting what they called, i need same amount of ordinance into this region reminders why it's so important for russia to take this area. well, this is the area that russia has had its hooks into since 2014. this is a region which has closer ties to russia than many other parts of ukraine has
5:15 pm
closer ties in terms of, you know, society in terms of the economy in terms of language. you know, before the war began, many local people, you know, they felt quite close to russia in many respects, they felt quite well disposed towards russia. so this is the area which perhaps russia feels that it would be easiest for it to make a claim to it. would be easiest for it to expand into. it's the area that it has been the best, you know, entrenched in since 2014. and so for those reasons, if it's going to went anywhere, then it needs to win in the dumbass because if it can't win him a dumbass, then there are really big questions about how effective it is as a military force in succeeding in ukraine at all. so yes, a dumbass is important for symbolic reasons as well as for some practical material reasons. so to clear, dr. mother, thank you so much for joining us, dr. jenny novice from avarice with university g 7.
5:16 pm
climate change folks here in berlin have ended with a commitment by the group of 7 leading industrial nations to lashley and the use of fossil fuels to generate electricity. by 2035, russia invasion has pushed the phase out of coal and the introduction of renewable energy sources of the agenda in many countries, including germany, still dependent on russian coal, oil and gas meetings, also accelerated partnerships to tackle climate change. well d w political correspond, julie saw danny, join me earlier from the summit and i asked her about the main outcomes with the meeting. as you've said, one of the important points that was announced here at the summit was the push to stop electricity production with a fossil fuels by 2035. but that is not the only thing that was committed to the countries here. also pledge to reduce carbon production
5:17 pm
a within the transport section in the coming years, but also to stop using coal to produce energy. we do not have a deadline for that goal to be reached for the phase out of coal for the entire g 7 . signaling that there is a desire for each country to go their own way on that. but we also heard a pledge afford the g 7 countries to support developing countries in the adaptation of foot to the consequences of climate change. and that underlines the importance of the fact that it is the developing countries that are bearing the brunt of the consequences of climate change. there was also focus, put on the protection of the environment from problems like plastic pollution or the loss of biodiversity. and on that, let's listen to what a germany's climate minister hall. but how, because to say george is gordon, does it become clear that climate protection is not only an industrial energy issue,
5:18 pm
but that the vulnerability of ecological resources to your sions, call role soil degradation? must be considered to give it with the efforts we're making to cite the climate and slow down global warming smyser data ramos. i'm so grims and so at julia as well as those agreements. so we see the u. s. and germany have done a separate deal. yes, they assigned a new energy partners, it between the 2 countries and it is a partnership that ties into the discourse coming. for example, from the u. s. is climate envoy, john kerry, who referred to the u. s. in germany as 1st movers in terms of countries moving towards a transformation towards a sustainable renewable energy production. and also it plays into this plan by german chancellor all of shots to initiate a so called climate club. a group of
5:19 pm
a leading countries in terms of transformation towards more renewable energy production, where countries like germany and the u. s. can push for the development of new technologies, for example, in the fields of hydrogen or offshore wind. to really a managed to, to, to give more steam and momentum to the energy transformation. of course the, the war in ukraine is everywhere. what sort of impact has it had on this 372? it was definitely one of the top topics discussed here at the summons. and a lot of the ministers who spoke at press conferences and at events made clear that of the russian invasion of ukraine and its consequences have put the focus on the connection between security, energy sourcing and climate change. and it has made it even more relevant for countries within the g 7, for example, germany or italy to become quickly independent from russian fossil fuels. now the challenges there is to make sure that this move away from russian energy sources
5:20 pm
doesn't bring g 7 countries to rely more heavily on fossil fuels from other countries and other sources in the long term term. this move away from these russian fossil fuels actually leads to a transformation towards a bigger use of renewable energy. thank you. julie actually stopped on it. finland has confirmed its 1st case of monkey pox. the global health officials have sounded warnings about the rising number of infections in countries where the virus is considered not to be endemic. or the 200 suspected or confirmed cases have been reported since early may. mostly in europe. fox is a type of viral infection, more commonly found in western central africa. the world health organization says it can be contained in non endemic countries to quick action. tar. yes. ravage from the world health organization told me about some of the quick
5:21 pm
actions that need to be taken. well, we know about the liars for many decades, and we know that it is being transmitted from one person to another to close to skin contact. so what is really important is to detect cases, make sure that the people who are diagnosed with monkey pox are being isolated. and therefore we, we bring the change of transmission. it's important to look for people who may have been in contact with this person and monitor those people that people caught context. so it is really a possible to, to, to contain. but countries really have to act so rapidly. and we are working with scientists from all over the world to try to really understand the context of this . because it is very difficult to see this big number of cases outside in the countries. it has not happened before to this extent. and so perhaps you could
5:22 pm
describe to us that the symptoms and outline of why this is on the w h. i was radar . well, monkey focus was on our priority list. the packages for many years it's, it's related to smallpox, the disease that we managed to eradicate in $78.00. and we were watching, working with the countries to see really how we can work on the gnostics on, on treatments and overseas. that research was ongoing. now it is not the disease, so it's being trust in the 1st place. it comes from, from animal world to human, to be true. conflict between animals and humans. the symptom, start with a headache with a fever, and then after a couple of days distinctive. the distinctive feature of monkey pox to start to appear is that is the rush and legions on skating as well as a swollen note. so whoever lives in the area where there was
5:23 pm
a confirmation of smallpox and start having these symptoms today should go to the health provider. again, most of people have just mild symptoms and the disease will simply go away. but disease can have a severe consequences, especially when even compromised people, children, all the older persons, right? so like in the early stages of cove, it early action isolate and wait to, to see which, which way it goes. but unlike covey, the a, w h. so he's saying that there is no need for mass vaccination. so this is really as much as we know, and we are now looking and analyzing the virus and genetic sequence to see whether there was any change. but trans traditional monkey is transmitted to really truce clothes came to skinny conflict. so you really need to be very close and be touching the person in order to, to be infected. like i'm like,
5:24 pm
call it the spread the true to air souls and droplets as well. so. so we have to be careful. we have to work together to understand effective why suddenly we have this number of cases. in the meantime, it is important to, to increase surveillance, which will probably lead to more cases being indemnified. but try to really get into, into a quick action to try to break that any any, any further on where transmission. ok, thank you for that. now you're shot of age from the world health organization. a london is in the grip of above favor. the swedish pop supergroup reunited at the star studied premier of a long awaited new show. they were there in person looking a little older than back in the heyday, but up on stage magic of digital technology brought their younger cells back to life. it was a triumphant return to the red carpet,
