1:02 pm
city has so far escape the worst of the bombardments seen elsewhere in ukraine. russia has been targeting residential areas throughout the week. we have correspondence in ukraine and russia covering the latest developments. but 1st, let's cross over to robert, right? he's live fronts in live in western ukraine. they've been taking hits there. what does the aftermath look like and live it has been quite an alarming development here for the people of this city, or we v having the air raid sirens go off as a nightly occurrence here. and often we find that there has been nothing at all, or just been a false alarm. they again, the air raid sirens went off at 1st light here in the river. and sure enough soon came through confirmation that there had been this strike aid sir. and it's been reported that there were a total of 6 missiles fired that came from the south that came from the area of the
1:03 pm
black sea. at the r credit, ukrainian authorities are saying that 2 of those are missiles were intercepted, but 4 of them did strike this facility. it said to be a, an aircraft maintenance facility, about 6 kilometers from the center of levine. we are hearing reports that there was a one person, an injured, but that was the extent of the casualties. but at the alarming thing is that we don't often see these type of attacks in the west of the country. there was as several days ago, an attack and a military base half way between here and the polish border, which was of some concern. because of course, being the poland, that is a, a nato member. before that, there was an attack at a military air field at the town of looks north of here at, but there at attacks like this do raise the question with many people. here is this, the start of a pattern that we know at the, the russian military follows that it starts to degrade and break down certain infrastructure military defenses before gradually then probing the outside of a city. and that's the big concern for people here because
1:04 pm
a living knows it's very much a city in a country at war. we've seen hundreds of thousands of refugees coming through here on their way and out of the country, there's a curfew enforce. it does a daily occurrence here we are now seeing funerals of service people, for example. but there is still a sense that life is pretty much normal here. there is food in the shops, people are going about their, their business or, but attacks like this. there are a reminder that this is very much a real war and a real war that could eventually be moving closer to the city. thanks so much robin . bob was talking about the grading and probing will the ukrainian capital no strange that was also hit by russian shelling overnight. it happened in the school district of the city when positive a russian missile. it's a residential building. emergency crews have been searching for survivors in the rubble. remember on con is there with more it was just after 8 am local time. when was said to be
1:05 pm
a russian missile. i actually hit this neighborhood in the north of a keys to take a look at the immense amount of down. you can see that entire facade glowed off. now when these apartment blocks were built in the sixties and seventies, they were built around a square in that square over there are the we're just going to pan round. so you can see that there is a children's play area. there will be a school low be a kindergarten. ah, now we've been moved away from that area because there's still unexploded ordnance that the police and rescue services are checking out. they're also going into all of the buildings to look for anybody that might still be trapped inside. we are hearing that one person was killed. 4 people were injured and a number have already been evacuated. this happened around breakfast time. yeah. she heard it from our hotels about 10 kilometers away from here. so we heard that you mentioned the thunderous noise that i would have made residence. a saying that
1:06 pm
that actually that they were actually very scared now because this is happening so often. anybody that is left in these apartment buildings is the actually sleeping in any room that has a glass frontal or actually sleeping in the lobby of their apartment. and that's what is saving them. now, this was an unthinkable just a few weeks ago. their tax would be taking place in a eve itself, but this is now an every day occurrence. a big refrain here from people is closed, the skies, ace, an appeal to nato, for no fly zone. however, we've just been speaking to vladimir clips. hancock who is a former world heavyweight boxing champion and the brother of the mer, he's also one of the symbols of keys resistance to the russians. at when i asked them about to close the sky. this is what he had to say. we're going to close the sky by ourselves. we need military equipment. we need weapons, defensive weapons. we're going to take care all contra in our selves if you can do
1:07 pm
it and close the sky, we're going to do it on their own. we need weapons. we need defensive weapons. we need it now. in an hour is going to be too late when he did now. the frequency of these attacks has got ukrainian residents, very, very scared. now the talks are still ongoing, but the more this happens, the less confidence people in ukraine, people in the city of keith have that the may road be a quick or an easy solution to this. or russian war ships have been shelling a desa, which is bracing for an invasion, ukraine's 3rd largest cities on the black sea coast and his home to more than a 1000000 people had abdur. hammy joins us live from the city of a desert. other people there must be watching very closely. what's happening in nikolai, of knowing that part of their fate depends on what happens in nikolai wright.
1:08 pm
yes, absolutely. that is something i heard over and over again here in odessa and actually displaced behind me, which is a sort of volunteer humanitarian center, is sending a lot of this stuff into goods collected here to nikolai, of because they say that really a de moment nikolai of is protecting odessa now. it was quite over the past few days, but from what we understand overnight, there was some heavy fighting between the 2 sides. the ukrainian army is able still to hold their territory. sometimes you're cheating sometimes advancing. but the russians haven't been able to take control of nikolai of now, those troops, the russian troops, actually that arrived there have actually been deployed 1st from crimea. they took over the region of have sun in the south of the country and they went further north to nikolai, which is about north east of where we're standing here in odessa. now there is,
1:09 pm
i believe, really, that equal live is important for 2 reasons. one that it would allow russia to really, to sort of insert, could the whole dumbass region going from here. it should have north east and then nikolai of, and then all the way down to mar you put. but on the other hand, from the could i of which is about a 130, to kilometers. from here, there's a river that has to be crossed, but they could then have a straight line to odessa. so certainly what happens there has an impact on this city and this region. clearly people are getting ready behind. you heard a think us through how the city is pricing for impacts. well, city this city is bracing for impact and taking that very seriously. i mean, wherever you go, specially the city sent to all that historical heart of this city is heavily
1:10 pm
fortified, or the museums have been emptied of the art. these statues are, it is about 400000 sandbags that are in and around this city at crossroads around important buildings. and so, so certainly it is bracing itself, but the most important bit that they're also protecting is the bed of beach front of some stretches of that beach. a has been a put with land mines all over it to stop or to at least a give time to make it difficult really, for the russians to have any sort of a landing on that beach. now people are also monitoring very closely what is happening at sea in the black sea on since we've been here. we've been hearing about, you know, russian warships approaching this at the coast towards odessa . we've heard about explosions in certain parts of the region,
1:11 pm
not in the city or the sirens. go off all the time and overnight. actually, they were some loud explosions heard in this city. but we don't know exactly where the army here is actually being quite a secretive about what's really going on. there is a very important a and t in navy defense system is called in the june events system was acting, the ukrainians had start training on in 2020. as we understand it, it is heavily deployed all along to close, and especially around the port of odessa is a very important point on the international level. because a lot of the grain that really goes to do a global food chain leaves from that board and is also very important. because if you create loses that port to russia, then you have russia. it has control more or less of the black sea and ukraine that becomes completely landlocked. so it's very strategic point and
1:12 pm
a lot of efforts are put in that poor to, to remain protected or a lot for us to keep an eye on in the days going forward. thanks so much, but i am done hamid there. now aid agencies describe the humanitarian situation in mary paul as apocalyptic around. 30000 people have left so far for more than 350000 are still sheltering in the city. as her bag is ins, approaches year where he spoke with one family that was able to get out of the managed to escape the horror, but are still suffering from the trauma of their days. you trapped him, mario poach surrounded by the russian army. but if they did, they sla wanted to do that. i can't find the words to describe that horror that we experienced. we live in a school could win it as little from this moody, but we're still home. i just he to was destroyed and then my son was running under rocket fired to collect water with we collected snow
1:13 pm
typically will notice the p. boyles did to drink. 65 year old. did he know peter, chris dover, and her husband sergey spent 20 days hiding in the basement with them from the raging battle above. they fled here to their to richie taken in by their friend constantine, one as well as the one do i hit their landing? we had only 2 liters to water. would drink water not meant for drinkin, were boiled it on the fire and drank it as well, but only had potatoes to eat. they are not alone in this ordeal. over 400000 call the city home. so irina recalls the moment they may detect and which you don't get, it will show them cross the. but it would show lucy, it was a miracle. when we heard that explosion in the center of mighty will put close to the drama theater much were jumped into the car and ran away from their vision. you didn't really had a root. we were just trying to get out there with me. so and then we happened by
1:14 pm
chance to join the course, of course because of putting jo, lose and the phone or she, they can't believe that this has happened to them from people. they once felt that you, when you might get her, she is not good with you enough. see, many of our people have been married and stayed in the russia. we maintained relation what we have grew up here from our country. our motherland were always told that the russia stone proponents but not an enemy. this was not an enemy and no wine at the national, just because family relations, most of those political treat them, we talk to each other. this was our relatives came to us. we spent some time and when the war broke out, we just couldn't understand that it could be a war between 2 brothers. they can never go back. the pain is too much. her mother died when the house was bombed. she could just get worse with them. i
1:15 pm
want to tell you something more a felice in the house, which was left my 86 year old mother. you put the name of you we missed. we just weren't able to carry her out. when did you know that 90 percent of my job is destroyed? there is nothing more there than you would the we don't have a place to go back to the can now on a way to to be still for the future to me. sure. here's hoping the war doesn't follow them here, but she would love to hear. i said big data is aperture or let's get the view now from moscow, because russia's president let me put in has been speaking to the german chancellor on the phone of also been hearing from the foreign minister. so gay, laugh rob, he told the government off the channel, the u. s. is trying to shape the world in its own image. dara
1:16 pm
players who would never accept the global village under the miracle sheriff and china india, brazil's argentine in mexico. i am sure this countries do not want to be just in the position of an uncle. sam ordered them something, and they say, yes sir. and of course russia is not in the category of countries who would be, who would be ready to to do so. let's go live now to our correspondent in moscow, das giovanni also land rover, also said the illusion is over. what does he mean? well, the foreign minister was talking about the idea that the united states, as a world superpower, is really not that powerful. and that d, a demands that it's made and from russia about its security, a concerns that this country has,
1:17 pm
are really not something that the russians are willing to accept. and they are now at proving that by taking matters into their own hands and looking out for their best interests as a result of which they are now carrying out what they call the special military operation in ukraine. the foreign minister also was very harsh on the ukrainian president vladimir zalinski saying that he is pushing you as president biden into a confrontation which clearly neither at the u. s. president wants, nor the russian a president. he also talked about how at the cargo ships of military aid that are going into ukraine are very much a fair target for the russian military. and he also talked about the goals that russia has when it comes to ukraine. let's hear what he had to say. we are implementing the duration, the goal of which is to remove in your throat through the russian federation coming
1:18 pm
from the ukraine. and so, and this was part of our proposal in december last year when we're suggesting that we negotiate was neither security guarantees. the re ridgewood codes are fine, all agreement, permission of the highest level that no one, no controversial than crews of security at the expense of the security for this. and also, we know the russian president has been speaking to the german chancellor watts putin's message been to schultz. well, this was a call that was initiated by the german chancellor. and apparently, the russian president has said that they are trying their best to work on some kind of an agreement, but that kiev is trying to delay those talks that are been ongoing over the past few days. and that every time they are now putting forth new demands are increasing their demands, which is really delaying these talks that have taken place. the russian president
1:19 pm
also said that they are not really interested in a trying to really stay in that country in ukraine. and that they are carrying out this operation, basically to make sure their own security entrusts are met. the kremlin also said that the phone conversation between the 2 leaders had, can hardly be called friendly. and that it was businesslike and hard. we also understand that the russian president will be speaking to the french president emanuel mac grant, later on friday, and he's also due to meet with his security council as well on friday. so we'll hear more from vladimir putin in the coming hours. that this phone conversation also from the german side, we've heard that a lot sholtes are called for a cease fire. and again, a diplomatic path to be pursued and that the fighting must end in ukraine. and vladimir putin had said that as long as these demands are increasing by
1:20 pm
the ukrainian side, it's very difficult to see a ceasefire or any kind of agreement between the 2 sides. all right, we'll leave that thanks so much. dawson jabari. all the presidents of china and the usaa juice hold their 1st direct talk since november fridays, phone call follows growing us concern over china's ties with russia. adrian brown reports from hong kong. the leaders of russia and china could not have been more explicit about their relationship when they last met 3 weeks before the conflict began. stickers sit on the circle of latimer putin and she didn't ping declared. it was a friendship with no limits. one expert says you, that means china will stand by russia. i don't think china sitting on the fence, janice, supporting russia. basically it tries to be diplomatic, but, ah, giving the gravity of the circumstances. think being neutral means means
1:21 pm
a form of support. she and putin have met 38 times as national leaders. it's not known if she was made aware of putin's plans for ukraine at their last get together . but there's clarity on one issue there shared aim to create an alternative to the current world order. china has cast itself as a neutral player in the conflict. abstaining from a united nations though, condemning rushes invasion yet is in a unique position to mediate. absolutely, i hope so. and i believe so. why? because china has good relations with russia on the white hand. and with ukraine on the other hand, and china does not have a stake involved in this military operation. and china as objectives and as channels also neutral, china's foreign minister insists his country respects the sovereignty of all nations including ukraine. but the legitimate security concerns of all countries
1:22 pm
must also be respected, including russia's, my assessment is that it will most likely, continues as diplomatic dance. sort of saying that sovereignty is important, but at the same time, the factor supporting russia, providing economic assistance to rush. this is a complicated crisis for china, despite its close partnership with russia. it's economic future depends in large part on good trade relations with europe or europe. that's now united behind tough economic sanctions on russia. and there's an added twist. last year, china was ukraine's number one trading partner. in recent, wargames, chinese and russian troops simulated an attack on a nameless enemy in ukraine though, china insists it's not taking sides of stance that analysts argue, might be harder to maintain. the longer the conflict goes on. adrian brown,
1:23 pm
al jazeera punk home, or i now donald botch call the is a fellow at the russian international affairs council in moscow. he joins us live now from the russian capsule. good to have you with us. first of all, let's start with what do you think specifically person will ask of she? well, thanks for having missed all the well, i believe that's actually a rush chain relation. have been developed in over the recent is a direction of a very close partnership. and i believe that actually worked, the chinese trying to do now is so go along baseline without try and so back up and i thought that once and for sure, i think that china will also stick to the stay in norway just in the future because it wants clearly to exercise restraint from this conflict. so it was not
1:24 pm
so change of the balance of its relation relationship, either with russia, with the ukraine or with the united states. and i think that the personal report between president bush and president, she also can play a role here because both be those have presented themselves the best friends. and i think that easier to go into continuous so as well because china has stressed many times so that it doesn't see itself as a part of the a consultation. and i think i also come to agree on the point of a bad, a bad time discussion between the lead. there are so for us trying to before the price of the roster. because otherwise, in vitro day of the crisis, we would see a big different approach of china than it actually was. that was china, but i froze based try try. it's very hard to understand what position to take on.
1:25 pm
and i think that if any discussion private discussion do to really take place. so china would chose that may be more proactive approach on let me jump it off this question. does china clearly have an interest in seeing that the west does not break crush, that russia isn't completely defeated and humiliated because china has its own struggle with the west? well, for sure. yes, that's exactly the point and i believe so that's why china is still trying to be very caution in its interpretation of the event just by it's all of be a recent publication that go in the viral when the media by watch and then being very upfront in support in the russia, i can't say so because china has never stressed frequency corruption that he's backed back such a russia, it has been
1:26 pm
a very cautious it has been very special in terms of providing its own the bees and if so on line and yes, for sure, and now day in the states is they'd be concentrated on be ongoing consultation between russia and ukraine. but in the long run, china understand clearly that it's a b, g and who is going to be challenged next after all, over the over. all right, and let me, let me, if i can ask this point as well. we've seen russia come on the immense sanctions and financial economic pressure from the west. now, us officials are talking about consequences for china if china helps russia out. but realistically speaking, how far can the west go in imposing any kind of measures on china? well, that's a good point because i actually did leave that we can rephrase one of the most
1:27 pm
popular trades in management saying that china is too deep to be cancelled out from the global economy. and so i believe, for the united states and grow in to be quite a task to pious china and your waste eve, even of publicly support russia. but i still believe beach and not go into the post . it understands that old though the united states have its own limitations on or on twitch an extra pressure on shiny still be jim doesn't want to risk eat and to begin, i think will continue to be very cautious. and even after today's the president by then and she came in talk, i think that china is a maximum which a chain can promised of the united states is a bed. it's a go into a buy a car for in your trailer g in face confrontation. it's not a go into simple to anyone, but i think that the united states cannot actually bring china on its own site
1:28 pm
in this confrontation. i think that china will continue this all the diplomatic talks, but it's not going to chose any of the sites. and in the, in the time it's cool to back up russia economically, right? elias some back channels that they might find by the way, openly. right, right. okay, thanks so much and good talking to you. now the u. k. is broadcast regulator is revoke the license of the russian government r c channel off. com says it does not consider all seem to be fit and proper to hold a license and cannot be considered a responsible broadcaster. the channel had been facing 29 separate investigations over its coverage of the ukraine war, the kremlin, as called the decision madness. at the baba joins us now. live from london, not every day. we hear about a step like this from off. come, how unprecedented is this or something. it's not completely unprecedented.
1:29 pm
back in 2012. the iranian channel. it radian government, but channel press tv. last fits license to broadcast the u. k. over a judgement that it, it's editorial oversight was being run by ron. so it was an independent editorially . and then just a year ago, china's c g t. n was taken off the air here because it was dean's to be controlled by china's communist party. and auntie itself has been fined in the past for breaches of impartiality rules. that's been off here in the u. k. because if you sanctions imposed over the invasion of ukraine, but it's still maintains a presence online and that's ongoing despite this rolling by off. come that a i know i know tv, which is the licensee behind r t is not fit and proper now the,
1:30 pm
the watchdog. so i teach new laws in russia which in its view, effectively criminalize any independent journalism that departs from the russian states. a news narrative, an outcome says that means that appears impossible for r t to comply with the impartiality rules. here in the u. k. that did reference those $29.00 investigations going on. as you were talking about saying that that was a fairly unusual situation. it did go to pains to stress that they had taken into account people's rights to a range of information and free speech considerations. but having to balance that with the importance of keeping public trust in the broadcasting regulatory system. now all you have responded deputy editor in chief and belkin. a had said that off. com with this judgment, has shown that despite a well constructed facade of independence, it is nothing more than
1:31 pm
a tool of government bending to its media. suppressing will. well, let's not forget that the opposition labor party here, cold for r t to be taken off the year after the invasion of ukraine. boris johnson, the prime minister then called for an investigation and vis move, is generally being appreciated by various political parties here in the u. k. but just to remind people that r t at the moment still maintains an online presence of votes. believe that london, the u. k operations are slowly being wound down, all right, and the deem bob of that from the u. k. capsule. so i had on the al jazeera sentence for anti government protest last july, demonstrators in cuba face decades behind vase plus in how young iraq is ascending ukrainians and musical message of hope. added school,

everything you see on the cut will lead to it is going to be longevity. the young have to come in and turn things around the my, my gerry, on our do their ah, the shake hammered award for translation and international understanding is accepting nominations for the year 2022 from february 15th until august, 15th this year. for more information go to w, w, w dot h t a dot q a slash e m. ah lou .
1:35 pm
ah, welcome back. you're watching al jazeera time to recap are have lines. the mayor of the verb in western ukraine says several russian rockets of id areas near the airport. the city is so far escape the worst of the gun bergman seen elsewhere. the ukrainian capital care has also been hit by russian shelling overnight. residential building in the podbielski districts of the city was hit by part of a russian miss. our emergency crews have been searching for survivors in the rubble the presidents of china and the you asked the due to hold their 1st direct talks. since november fridays, phone call follows growing us concern over china's ties with russia and beijing stance on the war in ukraine. let's go back to some news that broke a little early in the u. k. 's broadcast regulator off. com has revoke the license
1:36 pm
of the russian government's r t channel from all this we can bring in. now scott griffin, his deputy director at the international press institute, joint us live from vienna. good to have you with us, was our correspondent pointed out scott the a few moments ago. it isn't completely unprecedented. how worrying though, and how different is this move against our tea? good morning, 7, thank you. thank you for having me. from our point of view, any time that media is bad or sanctioned in this way, very, very serious petition. no matter the circumstances and any type of decision, the one that should be subject to very strict scrutiny, even if there are, as you mentioned, precedence having said that, i do think it is important to point out that that is a job to move into whether broadcast license
1:37 pm
a whole basic standard, including the issue of impartiality. i'm has concluded that that is not the case for russia. it's new, but it is in principle, legitimate for independent regulated strict issues and commonplace decision. now that is a different question of whether the decision itself is grounded and the right one. right and talking perhaps in general terms, scott, is it clear to journalists to those in the industry where the line is drawn when it comes to impartiality, which was one of the reasons cited? because let's face it, there is a very big growing debate in media circles, particularly in u. s. media circles about the impartiality of some of the u. s. channels, right. but we're not seeing the band obviously broadcasting in europe. well, i mean, obviously the very difficult issue in particular is something that is difficult to
1:38 pm
define. and i believe that decision some dependent heavily on the circumstances. there's no question that russia today extremely closely made to the russian government, which is much for aggression or the neighbor. and what is also true. as i pointed out for media freedom independent journalism in russia is under immense repression . it isn't all impossible to carry out. it is that in journalism, within russia. ready on the basis of russia, they cannot be considered. ready in a position to hold these and partially ruled, it has done so, notably as mentioned in the report without actually having concluded on any investigation that are currently open. today. i do think that appointment needs to be scrutinized where we can be skeptical. because as i said, there is no conclusion to be open investigation. rather this is sort of it and bad
1:39 pm
side of saying that it doesn't believe russia today in a position called in partially. so that is the type of decision and, and reasoning that we shouldn't be skeptical of my view. it's like you read my mind from my next question. whether it's the fact that off comm hasn't concluded the investigations all the investigations under way before reaching this decision, or whether we look at some of the measures which russian authorities have taken against broadcasters and journalist fair. can we say that this ukraine war has really right, shifted up the pressure on journalists? absolutely no question concerning and again, any measures to restrict the flow of information are inherently problematic, especially in. ready times of war. as we mentioned, that the applications are not included just one reason to be skeptical. but again,
1:40 pm
we are in time of war and has taken into account that needs to be considered as relevant. these types of instructions to calculate does change. and time of conflict, but as you mentioned, another reason to be skeptical or concern. do fear that rational retaliatory test that's against for broadcast as possibly to be to a greater extent. and this is very bad for the russian public, which has very few options when it comes to making news at the moment. and that will mean even fewer options, which is, which is, which is definitely starting from are just the last point. you know, we are going to be depressed freedom organization. we're always skeptical censorship. censorship is not the best way to combat this information in our use and really believe we should be on supporting independent journalism that is able to do the fact check you able to find out what information narratives are
1:41 pm
