does via the okay. we decided on monday to support ukraine with capehart anti aircraft systems, which is exactly what you cry needs right now to security. a space from the ground from this has become clear again today which go on the gay part or cheater 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 shoals warned a few days ago for the possibility of a nuclear war. while many in europe are looking at germany to lead efforts to support ukraine, the united states has now stepped in with this meeting on german soil, united states as managed to convince countries like germany who was 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 step, fasten from the ramstein air base in germany. the u. k,
7:10 am
his intelligence agencies claimed that around 15000 russian troops had been killed since the war began. or moscow has only acknowledged 1300 troop deaths and says few than 4000 others have been injured. for britons defense secretary toll parliament, the actual figure is far higher. russia is also believed to have lost 2000 armored vehicles, long with 60 helicopters and 4 of jets where russia says it will turn off a gas supplies to poland and bulgaria on wednesday. because they refuse to pay for it. in roubles is the 1st time since the start of the ukraine war, that russia has made such a move. last month, i think that guten had warned so called unfriendly foreign bias to pay the russian state and gas company roubles instead of dollars. and euro's oak area says it has made alternative arrangements. meanwhile, opponents says it's at gas stores, facilities are 76 percent food and the worn ukraine dominated the hearing about

7:12 am
a balancing act. we have to do it, not only effectively, we have to be as smart as possible about how we do it. and when we do it, and so for example, we want to make sure that we are not taking actions in the near term that may have the result of spiking energy prices and thus lining putin's pockets, instead of taking resources away as this was a hearing on the fiscal 23 budget, the ukranian war wasn't factored into the calculations. and so the bind administration says it's going to have to send a supplemental budget request to congress to help pay for its ongoing support of the ukrainian government authorities in t of have demolished a monument symbolizing soviet era ties between ukraine and russia. cities. maritally crisco says a 2nd part of the study will be removed later, joined to arch will be renamed and lit up in with the colors of ukrainian flag. also says their plans to demolish 60 other monuments related to russia. and the

7:17 am
now in calling them para florence. what more to me now about the circumstances over this execution? this was a highly contentious execution and it went ahead despite public outcry in singapore and abroad, that were candlelight vigils protests in singapore and in malaysia in support of an agenda. and that with celebrities and billionaires who spoke out on his behalf and his lawyer say, and again, and should not have been executed in the 1st place because he suffers from an intellectual disability. he has a lower than average i q of 69. but the singapore high court disagreed with that and said, having considered expert psychiatric evidence, it found that negative had no abnormality of the mind when it commit, when he committed the offense. and that he could distinguish between right and wrong. that a single poor government's position is that the general was accorded for due process under the law. he was legally represented throughout the process from trial
7:18 am
to his numerous appeals. and the other reason why the verification is so contentious is the use of the death penalty against or for drug related offences. activists in some research, as announcing that there is now more and more evidence that the death penalty does not work as a deterrent. and that this kind of law that's kind of penalty, really targets drug meals more than drug laws. singapore has a 0 tolerance policy towards drugs, but they're now increasing colds for it to rethink some of its laws. the you and human rights folks person issued a statement, 2 days before and attendance shadowed execution urging singapore to hold it execution of mackenzie and other death row inmates. and she said in the statement that the use of the death penalty for drug related offences is not compatible with international human rights law. and that countries that have yet to abolish the death penalty can only use it for the most serious crimes. and there is no
7:19 am
indication that singapore is ready to rethink this part of its law or that is even considering a moratorium on death sentences. there are thought to be more than 50 people on death row in singapore. and there are, at least for others, found guilty for more found guilty of drug related offenses. who are at risk of imminent execution. ok, florence louis, thanks for that update. we're staying with this a song. oh is a principal advisor at the pacific research center. he says, singapore still vigorously enforces the death penalty for seamless drug related crimes. why i think over the past few decades, a lot on drought related crime sometimes, you know, extra dating the on the one and not the malaysian sites malaysia. next friday that is on citizens to senior or and knowing that sort of drug
7:20 am
abuse will be imposed on such as citizens. so i think that you don't believe cell is currently having a moratorium death. and the as the present case, you haven't seen that you need to be sure reaction from the foundation side of u. s. secretary states has warned that iran that could be in a position to develop a nuclear weapon in weeks that's down from previous assessments of about a year. and so the lincoln says, a return to the 2015 nuclear deal is the best way to reduce any threat you also said to iran has accelerated its nuclear program. in recent years. we've now tested 2 propositions. one was the nuclear agreement that was originally reached and that significantly set back iranian capabilities to pursue a nuclear weapon, particularly the facade material for such weapons. and that agreement was working
7:21 am
by all objective accounts. we've tested the other proposition which was pulling out of the agreement, trying to exert more pressure. and we've also seen the result. and the result has been that that nuclear program, which had pushed back the breakout time to a year in terms of being able to produce hassan, mature for a weapon that's down to a matter of weeks or mike hannah has more on this now from washington d. c, while the setting in which the secretary of state chose to make this information public was in a senate committee hearing the secretary of state essentially defending the bite and administration's policy to re engage with iran to attempt to put back into place that joint comprehensive plan of action, which was established in 2015 and then abolished by then president trump in 2018. later in the day we heard from the press secretary jennifer saki who made very clear that the administration was deeply worried about this increased pace with
7:22 am
which iran appears to be improving its nuclear weapons program. at the same time, she said this was a consequence of the previous administration, and this is why when president biden came to power, one of his 1st actions was to draw up a plan in an attempt to reengage iran. and to re establish that joint comprehensive plan of action, the secretary of state making clear that it would be better to engage iran, limited nuclear development rather than to carry on as it is at the moment with iran, essentially out in the wild with no controls through nuclear inspectors or in terms of that agreement with the u. s. and other entities. but there's another aspect to this as well. the secretary of state doing this in a public setting, making very clear that he's seeking domestic support for the biden administration program of re establishing connections with iran and re establishing that plan that was abolished and putting it in public like this is
7:23 am
a way in which the abide and administration as a whole can attempt to garner domestic support for a policy that is unpopular among many within congress about now to the war in ukraine. and some analysts believe that russia could use a breakaway reasonable dover to attack ukraine from the west. or dover says it's stepped up security after southern explosions in it trans. this trail to the soviet area at radio antennas and the military unit were targeted. on monday, the ministry of state security in the region was also it trans at mr. borders. ukraine, and he's under the control of russian batt, separatists, or open forces, went to war against the separatist there in 1991. when all, dover broke away from the soviet union, russian soldiers have been there ever since. last week, a russian commander suggested creating a land corridor or from ukraine's dumbass region to crimea and through to the russian speaking population in that trans mistrial. sonia miller reports
7:24 am
the aftermath of explosions in the capital of the south declared territory of trans new history and on soviet era radio and 10 i used to broadcast russian radio and military unit was also targeted. this small sliver of land that sits on the mold domon border with ukraine is on high alert. since the start of the war more dover has feared that it could be in danger of being pulled into the conflict with russia . because here in this unrecognized breakaway state is home to some 1500 russian troops that moscow called peacekeeping forces. 470000 people most the russian speakers live in this strip of land. while not internationally recognized, it has its own currency and its own leader regime castle sail ski. there is also a military guard,
7:25 am
but what's causing concern is not just the russian troops who have been here since the civil war in the early 19 ninety's. it's also the $40000.00 tons of weaponry and ammunition that remain at norm's depot. here since the collapse of the soviet union, although as president my asunder vowed a peaceful negotiation but condemned what she said, what any attempts to ruin the country was neutral status. and when we remain open to continue dialogue so as to solve conflict in the region in a peaceful manner negotiated through diplomatic channels. when that would offer people in moldova, including those in the region of trans nice drea, a chance to a peaceful and prosperous life. ukraine has warned a false flag attacks by moscow. last week, a senior russian commander said the next goal in it's offensive was to access trans anesthesia to seize control of southern ukraine. further increasing tensions, even so it remains a huge tactical risk for russia to drag malt over into the conflict. russia would
7:26 am
need to have a successful offensive in solving new grain. would you mean that majors? it is a mccully, which is currently a battle ground. odessa, which is even bigger battle ground, would after fall 1st, and then they could think of what me heal, ambridge and sister. so long as with assa remains outside of russian hands, that's a illusory goal right now. meanwhile, many watch and wait to see what will happen here in this territory that could define the next phase of russia's campaign. sonya eagle al jazeera, a permanent opposition figure, and politician and sudan has been released from prison. former cabinet minister colored yusef was freed on bail on tuesday. he was one of several politicians arrested in february 4 months after takeover by the military. leaders yourself is a member of the sideline group. the forces of freedom and change. north korea has staged a night time military parade. the streets of the capital till young is the latest
