10:02 am
as is principally to totally subjugate ukraine to take away its sovereignty, to take away its independence. that has fail. it sought to assert the power of its military and its economy. we're forcing just the opposite military that is dramatically under performing an economy as a result of sanctions. as a result of the mass exodus from russia, that is in shambles. thursday, the broke president biden signed a, you know, a drop down and on saturday, ours was worth join up from that draw down package. that is a unimaginable speed. and it's due to the hard work of all the men and women who are working day out day in a day out to, to do the kinds of things that they're doing. what we're going to remain focused on giving him what he needs to be successful in the future, and that, that's what you, you'd expect you'd expect for him to say thanks but, and he's really grateful. but you know,
10:03 am
let's focus on what needs to be done. when courtney is a former white house senior director for russia, ukraine and eurasian affairs, he says having allies travel to ukraine help zalinski is image as a legitimate war time leader. visits of the western leaders have shown some of support for present soleski and ukraine. silly, courageous defense of its counter, but they've also shown a measure of confidence that ukrainian government has made okay of secure. so there are 2 purposes there. now, 3rd purpose is to get a measure of zalinski as a war time president. he's become a war time, winston churchill, to the surprise of a lot of people. a lot of western leaders had not known zalinski in that context of getting a personal feel for him and for the figures around him is an important step. well, the where says moved, it's a red line if you will, throughout you at the beginning,
10:04 am
the west is emphasizing that it was providing all the defensive equipment, including javelin ante armor and stinger anti air systems. but now as the fight has changed, its move to the east of ukraine, where there is more open country. so longer range, artillery tanks are more useful there. so the west has stepped up, the kind of military equipment that was provided earlier. the u. s. president turned down the big 20 and i'm transferred from poland to your crime, apparently thinking that might be provocative. but if that issue were to come up today for the 1st time, us might have a different response. well, you crane is trying to repel russ as offensive in the south found in the eastern don bass region. charl. stratford is near the front line in soviet the town of lee man, which is about 20 kilometers and also have a channel that we were literally unable to get to today because the shelling was so
10:05 am
heavy we did, however speak to civilians coming out of it. they yeah, confirming what we could have saying that they were families sheltering in bunkers . we smoked one person to describe the crater in the center of town that was believed to be changed from an air strike. we cannot confirm that. and just as indication of the difficulties that people are facing here is this, as it was, continues, there was a young family that will actually trying to get into lehman. at one stage we said, well, where are you going? can you hear the shelley? and they said, well, we have no choice, our home is there and we cannot afford to live in denise pro, and that's where they fled to. they played that every once before and now they were going into it. just as it seems, russian forces are making a concerted effort to push towards the city of sylvia and where we are now in other areas. we also know is ongoing fighting south east of here in a town called pop sana,
10:06 am
which we understand is half controlled by the russian rules is heavily contested. and as i say, is an indication of the russian army trying to surround savanski here as sofa so far, at least the ukrainians, ukrainian forces seem to be keeping, keeping them back. the emanuel macro has been re elected as france as president. he comfortably beat far right challenger marine the pen, but he's acknowledged voter as dissatisfaction with his 1st term. and with almost all the votes counted, macro has an estimated 58.54 percent in the presidential runoff. while the pan leader of the national rally party has 41.46 percent, here's bernard smith reporting from paris manual micro gamble that a short but tense election campaign would be enough. it was his comfortable margin
10:07 am
of victory over marina pan, gives him a 2nd term of the lease a palace, only 2 presidents before him of manage that in his victory speech, makram promised that his next 5 year term would be different. said there are new readiness up this new era will not be a continuity of the 5 previous years. but the collected invention of a revised method for 5 better years for our country. and are you faced supporters? this is a when that endorse is what they believe is their country's role at the heart of the european union. what have you said to my wife? i'm very happy up to the last minute i thought i would have fainted. you never know in life, anything can happen. rosie that's already been up to day extensions were significant that emanuel macaroni did a good job in the 1st years of his mandate and he deserves to lead france again. marine la, penn, gave the far right the highest share of the vote in a french election, but her path to the presidency was blocked again by a republican front. in other words,
10:08 am
many voters who supported other candidates in the 1st round voted this time to keep le pen out. now, but in a button that is we, the game is not over since in 3 weeks time we will have the legislative elections. ah, that is we know, or a distortion of the political trend and create a risk of a manual macro. concentrating all executive and legislative powers. john lew, melanie shown the far left presidential candidate, took just one percent less of the vote than the pen in the 1st round. he wants his party, france on bowed to with enough support in the legislative elections. the macro is forced to appoint him prime minister. yet to should, to all of you, i say, do not resign yourself. on the contrary, go candidly and completely into the action has on democracy, can once again give us the means to change direction. the war in ukraine and the raw, using cost of living were main concerns for french voters. both issues will likely
10:09 am
dominate the start of micron. the 2nd term that probably won't be much of a grace period for the president on the left with many of them and voted for him, reluctant to raise the retirement, easy to hire and fire workers, reform on employment benefit program. the 1st thing just put in ramps again, algebra. nicholas tanser is a guest professor of government and political theory of sciences po university in paris, and he says, micro faces a challenge and uniting the country. i think one of the men difficult people for macros that is perfectly knows that he cannot, of course, run again because of the ro under consideration basically. so we certainly have, we will have to probably not designate but to choose a kind of person who could replace him next elections. and i think that we have also to focus on the 4th saying,
10:10 am
which is very important. if we consider the 1st round of the 1st presidential elections, we had basically more than 50 fard. our entire system voters are from the far right. approximately 35 percent. all from the fall list about 2021 percent. so i think it's a huge number of people that we have to convince. i mean, the classical political parties are classical political poses from the left all from the light, from the center, like michael to convince that there is absolutely no future for those on time system forces. i think that's one of the main challenges. in fact, as a frenchman, i am not very proud of the fact that we have still 42 percent of the voters who voted for the far right candidate. you see that the 1st time, the 3rd time that you have a far right candidate present in the 2nd round of the presidential election. and i
