2:06 pm
ukraine. charles, stanford is there near i've diff car he joins is live. charlie, what's the latest from the front by now? that's why you join us just outside the frontline town of i have div car we have literally in the last few minutes just got off an evacuation bus. we joined the bus and into abdi of curb to try and evacuate as many civilians as possible from that city. as we heard how to say. the evacuation effort in mario full, of course, is being negotiated with the russians. there are a whole host of evacuation attempts that go on around the eastern region, the front lines in the east every day. and these are private individuals or in this case, a church group. this particular group going into have to have co in allow, during a lull in the shelling it was quite as, as we went in, but a lot of destruction, lot of the buildings destroyed. and some very terrified people as well that have

2:08 pm
of the front line, we understand, according to the ukranian military, they saying that russian policies are put in at least another $800.00 soldiers as reinforcements into the contested town of po puzzler. that town is east of here and is part of russia's campaign to try and surround the urban centers of savanski kraemer tours. we know that sir least 2 private volunteers of volunteers evacuation drivers had gone missing in that town. over the last 48 hours, we're now hearing that one of those volunteers has appeared. he was taken prisoner by russian forces. and all indications suggest that he has been made to make some sort of confession under duress that apparently is circulating on russian media. as for other fighting across the front, it's the usual tails that we've been reporting about. and from in recent days, tails like li man tells like is yom towns like curb burial cover?
