9:05 pm
willing to leave the areas of current and expected confrontation in coordination with the international committee of the red cross. seconds beyond humanitarian operations already taking place at balls, we will offer the safe delivery of life saving humanitarian aid to people in the car. thus it areas such as mario ball, carson donuts and once that's her life, the eastern new crane al jazeera. charles stratford is in pa croft. charles, bring us up to speed on this renewed push by russia there in the east will certainly adrian in the areas along very close to the frontline that we have visited today and some incredibly heavy shelling we heard. and right, the way along basically the areas that we visited and never certainly speaking to
9:06 pm
people in this area, they haven't heard anything quite as heavy as, as that, so far in this conflict, it's really shocking to see certainly the towns that we've visited, including this one pa cross, just how few people that are left in this area. i mean, we are doing this live from inside a hotel is a very strict rules on curfews. we're not actually supposed to have lights on in the hotels. houses are, are encouraged at night to, to close the curtains. there is nobody on the streets. the local authorities here a saying last made around 70 percent of the population of this town alone has disobeyed flight the fighting. we visited the train station here as well, which every day has a train departing west, taking people away from the front lines. those who wants to leave those that remain . and it's fair to say that we're very few people on this train as well. i mean we
9:07 pm
spoke to a young mother taking her 10 year old son out of the oven area, further east. from here. she saying that she did not want her 10 year old son to be a victim. like the countless victims we saw in boucher. we saw a couple of an elderly couple as well, who described to rick scenes in a town that they were fleeing as well. not far from here, describing the town as being a pretty much destroyed an ongoing fighting in it. so yes, the situation here, the further east you go, the more her effect, the more frightening it becomes with respect to, to fighting and casualties. we understand that sir least 4 people were killed in shelling in car cave. of course, car cave. we've seen such heavy fighting now for weeks, which is knowles east of here. we've also hearing this evening that at least one person was killed in shelling in the town of kraemer tools. again the town slightly
9:08 pm
north east of here. but also interestingly to say, certainly according to the ukrainian military, they're claiming some military success encounter offensives. the, the specifically around the town of mary anchor, which is not far from here. i suppose it was about an hour ago that lines began to drop from the ukrainian military saying that they had taken back full control of that town of having lost it earlier in the conflict. and certainly the time that those lines were dropping and it was consistent with them about an hour hour and a half before we'd been in that area. and as i described, i mean to go, the shelling was incredibly intense. so yes, all indications would suggest that certainly fighting has intensified in this region in the last 24 hours or so. but as a says, it pulled to certainly, according to the ukrainians,
9:09 pm
recognize that they are claiming at least certain successes in and along this frontline as they try and hold russian forces back our chance. many thanks out as there is chance strength for their reporting live from pull crafts in easton, ukraine's book with a little more. and how things are playing out in russia is our correspondent dosage . barry, with the latest from moscow, the russian foreign minister circle of rav that was asked whether or not at the russian military would ever consider using their tactical nuclear weapons that they have in their military arsenal. and a foreign minister was adamant that the russian military will continue to use what he called conventional weapons during this conflict in ukraine at the russian defense minister survey. chicago has also been speaking to a number of military personnel at a meeting here in moscow. and according to the russian defense minister, the reason that this conflict is continuing to drag on for so long this now de
9:10 pm
$55.00 of the so called special military operation, which began on february 24th. the reason for the fact that it's taking this long is that according to the defense minister, the united states continued to supply weapons and aid to the government in kiev is really very issue at the heart of this conflict. dragging on for this long at survey chicago saying that the united states has a really continue to and poor weapons into ukraine at to try and drag this conflict as long as possible in an attempt to and continue to destabilize. and we can russia and its influence in the region retired us army, general mark commits was a former deputy director of plans. the strategy with st. com and served as assistant secretary of state for political military affairs during the george w bush administration. he georgia smiled from mclean, virginia, far scribe could chevy with us. again, general m a. u. s. a senior
9:11 pm
u. s. defense official says that around 7 us flights will be heading to europe in the next 24 hours carrying weaponry for ukraine. will those weapons make any difference in the fight for don bass? well, as i take a look at this 800000000 package that was just announced the other day, a did have some equipment in there that it's valuable. but the numbers of pieces of equipment in aggregate are really no more than barely keeping up with what has been lost by the ukrainians. up to this point, they talk about 18 howitzers. i think the they have lost probably 140000 rounds of ammunition that will be good to keep them moving on the ground, the switchblade, you a, these will certainly be helpful, but there are no magic bullets in that aid package. and candidly,
9:12 pm
with this offensive coming up, i wouldn't want to say it's too little too late, but it certainly helps nato understand that the united states is still sporting, but it won't make a significant difference on this upcoming battle. okay, as far as the fight for don bass is concerned. do you think that russia has learned from its mistakes? and yet here it is launching this offensive against such a wide swathe of territory here. can it, can it be successful? well, 1st of all, we haven't really established how, when, and where they're going to attack, we're going through this phase right now called shaping or preparation to the battlefield. hence, you see a lot of artillery. you see a lot of ground reconnaissance elements out there. but i don't think the russians have played their hand just yet. yes, they probably have learned from their initial attacks. and most importantly, they've replaced a number of generals, some who had been killed,
9:13 pm
others who were proven incompetent. and they put a new general on top of all them, a general devora cough who has a significant amount of combat experience in chechnya and more recently in syria up . so i think all the pieces are in place for the russians to have planned a good plan. it is yet to be seen how well they will execute up till now. their execution has been very poor and aware into this in this russian strategy. does the port city of mario pull a full why it? why is that city so important to this russian offensive? well, i think it's 2 things. in the long run, it's important because it provides the land bridge between russia and crimea. something the russians have wanted ever since they annexed crimea in 2014 number 2, latimer who needs to have a victory before may, 9th,
9:14 pm
the victory day parade. and mary, opal is probably his nearest potential victory. but i would tell you the amount of brutality and destruction in mary a pull, i actually think will work against him because it's going to inspire the ukrainian offered the ukranian army. sort of, as we say in america, remember the alamo. so i think in the long run, it's going to hurt against him. and, but he will at least have that land bridge from russia into premier. and how long do you think it will take russia to get to a point in this offensive before it can declare some sort of a victory? what, what would that entail? what would it look like before president putin can say, right, that's our objective. achieved, given the ukrainian forces, even if, even if they face a route are going to put up very stiff resistance. oh that's,
9:15 pm
that's absolutely true. the ukrainians have surprise all of us with their fierce resistance. i think in the south he could proclaim victory if he was able to use those. ready remaining southern forces to take off of desa. that would be a significant victory for him. and that would essentially turn ukraine into a landlocked country. in the north, it's very likely that the general to florida cough is not going to attack do ah, east to west. but more than likely, he will use the old russian maneuvered tactic of enveloping from the north. so if you look along that is you maxes any attacks due south that will be behind the lines of the main ukrainian forces. and if he can encircle and surround them, he will then destroy them. and latimer putin can hold that up as victory in the north. really get to talk to you again so many thanks to you for being with us.
9:16 pm
general mark kimmitt that. thank you, mclean, virginia. your with it. he's out for marcella still to come on the program making a mock the level revel. route revolutionary hero vying to the presidency at east timor. the presidential front runner and favorite, even though his name is linked to corruption, oppression in the philippines than the golden arm of steph curry action from the end the playoffs coming up later in schools. ah, what is 15 people have been killed in attacks on 2 schools in afghanistan is capital witnesses say that hand grenades were used now to serious friends in monahan, reports blood on the streets of cobble explosives, detonated near this school as children were leaving their morning classes several people are dead and children are among the injured. but the key for george,
9:17 pm
ellen forgot that we are close to the school. i quickly came to the site when the 1st blast happened to see if everything was okay. i went to the top of my house to see what was going on. there was a crowd of people over there and i was standing on the roof of my house and called my children to enter the harm. suddenly the 2nd blast happened and i got injured. the victims are members of the has ara a, she a minority group there community and this neighborhood had previously been targets of eiffel attacks. the governing taliban says the security situation is under control, but ours toward that violence may be on the rise. the most important thing that we have to talk about and we have to consider is the fragile nature of the security. it can easily be disrupted, it could easily be in danger as we have seen today. so therefore, i think a lot has to be done on the part of the taliban to do to provide it from fix to quickly to the entire population or one is done. but it is going to be impossible for them. because if you see the,
9:18 pm
the economic or harsh deducing for jazz meant in the public discontent that is going with, with already passing day, all those things combined together. i think it will computer difficult for him. back at the school security forces arrived to seal off the area. the taliban has been cracking down armed groups since it came to power in august. but this latest attack is a reminder that security remains what bits. biggest challenges been to monahan al jazeera, counting as underway in the final round of east timor's presidential election, nobel laureate josie ramos horta is up against encumbered francisco garage in a runoff. boat scene is crucial for the country stability. jessica washington reports as h as youngest country goes to the polls. aunt rivals faceoff once again in the final round of presidential elections, incumbent francisco. look with that if says he's focused on the economy and improving people's quality of life. what if i won
9:19 pm
a prosperous economy will try not to incur unnecessary debt except to improve people's lives. in march, 16 candidates contested round one at the elections. curtis one only 22 percent of the votes. while his opponent, nobel laureate joseph ramos horta got nearly high politics in east timor, also known as timor, listy is dominated by older men who are respected for the wrongs in the countries fight for independence from indonesian occupation. both candidates are from a generation of what a widely viewed as revolutionary heroes, renown make up the political elite or competed in elections in 2007 to which ramos horta one is la, respectful, the, all the politicians. there's a lot of respect. ready for their resistance generation and the veterans, but people are asking the question, oh, how long can this generation dominate? polls exactly. melissa. as he cast his own ballad ramos horta said he would prioritize building regional ties all day. foreign policy
9:20 pm
from absolute priority is our water osceola membership. around 40 percent of people in east timor leave in poverty as people queued in the sun waiting to have their say many a hoping for solutions to high unemployment and improvements to health care and education. political stability is on the minds of many voters to a longstanding rivalry between the 2 major parties has created a political deadlock that prevented the government passing a budget. i hate to put an i hope that no one will forget their promises made during the campaign. we'll have to keep reminding them, said those promise is a well implemented in the community. some analysts say the growing number of young voters are getting tired of the political dramas of the past being continually dredged up. and that's putting them off supporting the 2 biggest parties, c, n, r t, and franklin. i don't think they see themselves represent in representing any of
9:21 pm
their agendas. and i think that's something that boats the inner t m. frightening are struggling with, with their representation of young people. now voters have a choice between 2 candidates, both played important roles in the nation's past, and hope they will to in its future. jessica washington out to 0 talks are underway between top us and south korean diplomats after a series of missile tests by north korea. the u. s. special envoy for north korea says that washington and saw have agreed on the need for a strong and unified response as concerned the pyongyang could conduct a nuclear test soon. the u. s. and south korea urging the north to return to talks . it is extremely important for the united nations security council for sunday, clear signal to the d p. okay, there we will not accept it as quality as, as normal. also agreed underneath to maintain the strongest possible joint determine capability on the peninsula. and as ambassador, no mention,
9:22 pm
this is why our militaries are exercising and trending together. like the exercise that started just today, i want to underline that we have not closed the door and diplomacy with the dpr k. and i once again collin kung to pers pursue a diplomatic pat with us. we remain prepared to meet with b meet with anywhere without any conditions. also want to make clear that we have no hostile intent towards the dpr k. and they've been protests on site south korea's foreign ministry against joint military exercises with the u. s. demonstrates as a calling for an end to what they say are coercive policies against north korea. the protested, insist of sanctions word solve the nuclear issue on the korean peninsula. scott snyder is a cd, a fellow full career studies and director of the program on u. s. korea policy of the council on foreign relations. he explains what's behind the us trying to re engage with north korea last time that the u. s. and north
9:23 pm
korea were engaged in diplomacy, was in 2018 and early 2019. and that diplomacy was enabled and purchased by north korean self restraints. in conducting of long range tasks, and it was also accompanied by a cessation of us south korean joint field exercises. but what we've seen over the course of the past few months in particular, is north korea, shedding the self restraint on its side and trying to build an enhanced strike capability, possibly using nuclear weapons. and as ambassador come indicated, the u. s. response has been to try to keep the door open to dialogue, but to also resume some of the preparations in terms of military exercises necessary to should, to deter north korea. so i think that the situation is similar to one and which actually if we look at the changes that have occurred on the u. s. and south korean
9:24 pm
side of military forces rotate, there's a new general in command. essentially we have a new administration. and so if you think about it in sports terms on the u. s. and south korean side, we have a new team, a new coach, a new owner, but it's a team that has not practiced. meanwhile, the north koreans have the same team in the same owner, but they continue to practice in terms of military preparations for writing us. australia says that it's deeply disappointed that china has signed a security agreement with the solomon islands, the u. s. and it ties in the asia pacific so that it could be stabilized the region, bringing chinese warships within 2000 kilometers of history and coast. i'm 0 is under chappelle reports and new security arrangement for the pacific that's caught many by surprise. china has signed
