shelter where they can, including in bunkers underneath industrial buildings. char stratford reports from near the russian control town of holy cow. this bunker is built under a soviet built brick factory. and it's typical of some of the giant grade cabinet spaces on the ground. underneath many of the soviet built industrial plants in this region. now it's being used as a place of shelter for around 4 families. so far. they tell us that they came down here a couple of weeks ago when the shelling in this area got particularly bad. you can see one of the areas where they stole their food he he come through. ready this in here is the main living area where people sleep where they eat. now the reason why nobody's here is because people are afraid of going on camera. they are that nervous about being identified and potentially being targeted. and
12:09 am
bear in mind that we were speaking to the people here earlier, and the majority of them are pensioners, but such is the degree of fear and paranoia that this russian invasion is generating amongst people. as you can see, there's a lot of food here that has been brought down by very brave volunteers, men and women that drive into this area every few days, delivering food to people in bunkers like this wall. and this is absolutely fascinating. these was gross diagrams who put up during the soviet times and they are basically civil defense morning's advice given to people who may have to be may have had to have come here in the event of a nuclear or chemical weapons attack by the west. i'm fascinating. to see that they still hear, you know, possibly more than 40 years. 40 years later. now,
12:10 am
in other news, we are hearing reports of heavy shelling and streaked street fighting in the towns of rubia and papa santa papa sna, i apologize. and we know that those air is a very heavily contested, and we understand that russian forces controller at half the, the town of pasta, and had been heavy casualties there. a lot of ukrainian soldiers have died. we know that having visited a field hospital in the area recently, the ukrainian military also saying that sir, at least 3 children, died of their injuries as a result of shelling of the town of leman. that is north of slave janski's last night. and the shelling there, we understand ongoing part of the russian forces attempts to push on into the area around the city of sloppy. ernst and cremmit tossed ukrainian military so far

12:12 am
a bit more to the who. these are the feet, so the head is over there. she says at 1st assessment revealed, it's a man who appears to be in his sixties. it's only when they flipped a body over that she finds a clue into the cause of death, not put on any of your thumb, not for foolish in each athenian. he's got a wanted the back of the hat, most likely it's from a bullet because he had blood coming out of the mouse. the body is the composing, and the skin is stuck to the clothes. so in order not to damage it more, we will take him away and then the forensic expert will investigate further. the found his fawn, we will charge it and hopefully find out more about him. the full scope of what happened when the russian soldiers left the towns north of keith is still not clear, but the trail of destruction left behind is evident. civilians have been
12:13 am
telling about how they were diagonally targeted as they were trying to flee. they had bullet holes all over this windshield, but this car was hit by some large caliber ammunition from the side here. and you can see still the remains of what appears to be a white flag marking the fact that they were civilians in this vehicle. and then here on this side of the car, you see the point of exit, of whatever ripped through the car. and inside it may have you still actually have blood stains everywhere. and in the middle of all that, a passport it belongs to a young man who was born in september 1990 children who, who killed all our business number and char children. but again, we don't. it's another example of a ledge war, crowns. among the thousands of cases that investigators have been documenting says, ukraine's prosecutor general. she has dispatched teams around the country to gather
12:14 am
evidence here and bro, junkyard, they set up in a classroom and is full of people telling their stories. again, hillan civilians, samo them over after tortured torture civilians. we are now started to prosecute sexual crimes raping. we see eat unfortunately with the then they talk, what property officer the lance. oh we see again there they bombed again and again, they bombed civilian trust. actually hospitals came to harder and schools more than 1000 into kish or institutions destroyed in ukraine. what is this? of course it's military. it is what crime. nearby boucher do. mortgage overwhelmed refrigerator trucks are also overflowing with bodies. olga finally found her husband after coming here for several days. he was killed while she was away in
12:15 am
poland. i put to move her sister there for the rest of the neighbors called and said me, he was shot on march 22nd. he was going to the garage to get some food to russian. soldier saw him ran after him and shot him twice. the russians didn't allow the body to be picked up for 3 days. bratia denies committing any atrocities suggesting they've been staged. but do you and human rights offers says, there is growing evidence of war crimes committed by russian soldiers and fears. many more could emerge as the fighting continues in the east and south of the country, where the little hamid elder z route north of keefe you case intelligence agency says about 15000 russian troops have been killed since the war began. russia has only acknowledged 1300 deaths and says fewer than 4000 others have been injured. but britain is defense. secretary told parliament to the actual figure is fall
12:16 am
higher. russia is also believed to last 2000 our vehicles along with 60 helicopters and fighter jets. of and 40 countries agreed to meet monthly to discuss arming ukraine. the 1st meeting of the broad coalition was held at the u. s. a base ramstein in germany, where the us and its allies promised to send more heavy weaponry to ukraine. among them was the german government, which in a major policy yuton said it would send anti aircraft tanks. steadfastly was there after his surprised visit to key if last weekend us defense faculty, lloyd austin told more than 40 defense ministers and officials of countries worldwide that they needed to do more for ukraine to win the war. so we don't have any time to waste the briefings today laid out clearly why the coming weeks will be so crucial for ukraine. so we've got to move at the speed of war. and i know that all the leaders leave today more resolve than ever to support ukraine
12:17 am
in his fight against russian aggression and atrocities. he used ramstein airbase in germany, the largest us based outside of the us to bring natal ministers. but also those from the middle east, africa and asia together, the location was significant because especially germany had been reluctant to send heavy weapons to ukraine. not anymore. guest and she does. we decided on monday to support ukraine with a pod across system, which is exactly what you cry needs right now to security is face from the ground. this has become clear again today about the gay part or teter, anti aircraft systems are not the combat. thanks. ukraine had asked 4 weeks ago, but it is seen as a breakthrough after the german government was worried about being drawn into a war with russia. and chancellor all of shows want a few days ago for the possibility of
12:18 am
a nuclear war. while many in europe are looking at germany to lead efforts to support your grandeur, united states has now stepped in. with this meeting on german soil, united states has managed to convince countries like germany who were still reluctant to send happy weapons to make a turn around. but the main question now is how nervous this will make people hear that the war will expand beyond ukraine. steadfast and from the ramstein base in germany park areas energy ministry says there's no need for restrictions on it's gas consumption yet of us despite russia announcing its halting supplies to bulgaria and poland from wednesday, the 1st suspension since president putin warned last month that on the friendly foreign buyers would have to pay state and gas from in rubles, instead of dollars and euro's garrett officials say they have alternative arrangements for natural gas deliveries. opponent says it's gas storage facilities are 76 percent full of management truck. yeah. garage business. we have received
12:19 am
threats from the russian federation, from gas problem. they are related with the method of payment in poland, sticks to the arrangements, and perhaps russia will try to punish potent in this way. as i have emphasized many times, poland had previously prepared, diversified gas supplies, and to obtain gas from various directions. and even before the baltic gas pipeline is launched, we will be able to protect our economy, protect households. i'm polls against such a dramatic stem by russia at franklin bridge is a senior lecturer, minutes you can receive in strategy at the university of portsmouth here, and you can join us for scott promote. so thanks for being with us. again, just want to ask you about the line that's being pushed again by the us defense secretary lloyd austin, wanting to see if we can russia as he put it in the free ukraine. how much difference would it make to be stating that aim openly about russia? yes, law. and it's significant, of course, because it leaves the way open for russia to allege that nato's using ukraine is
12:20 am
a proxy. but look, this decision was made in early april, inside. i think before that when the u. s. congress decided to pass the lend lease arrangements making us once again the arsenal of democracy. so in terms of what's going to happen on the ground, it means little. but it is a significant development in terms of the rhetoric and given how much equipment and the west is promising to keep sending to, to ukraine. how difficult will it be to, for russia to, to maintain the kind of losses it's, it's had off until now. while today they once again have found it difficult to break through ukrainian lines. in fact, the crane is a counter attacking in some places and there's no question that the losses that the ukrainians have taken tapping significantly don't know about and quite right ukrainians. don't tell us about them are being made up. i think, to some extent material by these western reinforcements in terms of heavy armor, lighter armor and county, i clap, commit equipment of the kind of britain promised yesterday. with that with star
12:21 am
st. massage. and today with the gap pods. and so what we see is a stream, a conveyor belt, a weapons heading on and containing head on the claim, which is what we should be saying. really if the west is serious about, about helping the country defend itself. and with nothing rougher the single, it'll stop the supply of gas to poland and bulgaria is a potentially a switch and tactics because of the pressure on no, do you think it's just it was due to becoming anyway, most part of that playbook, i suspect will be seeing a lot more of this as time goes on, threats against against europe, particularly, which is quite vulnerable as you know, to, to energy pressure from russia. and this would be a 1st step on that escalator, a path i think that, that russia is going to take. but it's to be expected on. i'm certain that the e u on the west. and nate, of course, have aimed against that. we see that because both already has all kinds of supplies . i think the point we out that we've had, again, from lack of a thing,
12:22 am
especially nuclear conflict, should not be underestimated in general. saying talk of nuclear was completely responsible. what is the kind of level of danger associated with the rhetoric here? yeah, there is some danger learn, i think, in the, in catastrophic success. if that happens on part of the ukrainian armed forces. we're not seeing that we're seeing them hold there. the russians in the don barzyk some ferocious fighting in the main cities that ukraine has fortified. if they succeed in driving the russians off and counter attacking, i don't see them succeeding in driving the russians back too far. then we could see a real problem with russia, with russia taking other steps, including escalation in terms of the weapons they use. that would be a very serious, very serious step. we're talking here with while we're talking very serious sir. matters such as weapons of mass destruction, but i think we're a long way from that and for the moment ukrainians holding. are you crazy holding on? and in the meantime, is that what about the potential her? the conflict to had a spill over into other areas. we've seen in on monday and tuesday where she was
12:23 am
explosions in at trans mystery or what, what do you make of that? yes such introducing trans nustar to the war is clearly russian provocation. moldova, of course, will soon mobilize the, the, the next step we should look for is perhaps in a couple of weeks time. russia changing the nature of this war, from a self declared special operation to an out military mobilization for war. that will be another dangerous step. so on an escalator path is no doubt about it. thank you. that's thank you very much and the death your analysis. thank you. lauren. coming up on the news i from london, moldova stepped some security after new explosions targeting at radio mass in russian. back to breakaway trans, mr. region. former colombian soldiers fully recognized their role in the killing of civilians presented as rebels killed in combat. and his sport, the boston celtics, take a step closer to the n b, a finals. possible action coming out ah,

and also listening a hearing from these officers, colonel sergeants, that explained their responsibility in the killings of civilians as the way to a boost the result of their military operations. explaining how they were operating under increasing pressure from their superiors, from the head of the military. or in many ways this has been an unprecedented the hearing in columbia, and which military lawyer are recognizing their responsibility in war crimes and crimes against humanity in there were many the tales that were surprising for many listeners among them. the fact that they actually planned out many of these killings did writing down a list of the names of the people, especially poor farmers. people with disabilities,
12:28 am
poor young people that they could at kidnap, kill and dress up as the rebels in them a present to as combat dancer. that's a very strong and powerful a day here in columbia. one that many hope will not only help reveal the truth of one of the darkest chapters of columbia civil conflict. but also assured that it will not happen again. and in the meantime, can be, as congress is holding a debate over and no confidence vote against the defense minister, an army rate which can at least for civilians what, what was going on there. yeah, what it that shows us is that even if the colombian military as it changed its policies and improved greatly from 20 years ago, it still has a way to go when it comes to respecting human rights. in particular, when it comes to military operations in rural parts of the country,
12:29 am
in this particular case, this has to do with the controversial operation that happened a month ago close to the border. 3 with equity in the town of puerto league, some of the military said that they did this operation to go after the commander of a new armed a group, a dissidence group of former 5 arrivals. and that in this operation, 11 of these sir, members of this on group to where were killed in another for captured about the since then a family members of the victims. busy angels and also. busy reports from columbia, media of showed them many of those killed were he said civilians that the attack happened in the middle of a bazaar in the town, a sort of a community festivity over over the weekend. so that's where the opposition is going after the administer of the fans and also shows that the military still has

what's behind the surgeon in severe have taught as cases it seems quite complex. there's no single cause a completely explains what's going on. i mean, there, number of possibilities. so a large proportion of these cases have been shown to be infected with. i don't know, virus, but this is not a virus that usually causes severe hepatitis in children how the children so it's not something we expect to see with that. i mean, there are other possibilities that it might be sort of an infection. alongside corvette ceasar school we to or infection out with prior co written and that's what's for example, been reported israel, where the majority of their cases has had, had co would recently. so all of these are, are currently under investigation and it's quite likely that it's not a single cause, but rather combination courses and have looked turns plate any paulton in reducing people's kind of resistance of these kinds of things. so i think natalie by themselves would be hard to explain what's happening right now. i mean,
12:42 am
certainly many respiratory infections reduced in children during mitigations and, and lot downs. and you can expect to see a sort of resilience after that. but, you know, as i said before, at no virus which does seem to be at higher levels is not typically associated with the symptoms. so if that is to explain, it would have to be a long site. something else, for example, coin fiction with our school. we to or perhaps increase susceptibility because of another virus or a new type of 5. no virus. by itself. i don't think mitigations would explain it. but one thing i would say is it is likely to be infectious disease related, given how wide spread it is across the world and things like medications against, oh, you know, airborne disease and sanitation would go away, whatever the cause, it, whether it is at no wider so whether it is cool, it raises what symptoms would people be looking out for? so the symptoms that are commonly reported are abdominal pain, diarrhea, war meting,
