6:01 pm
russia. e dallas is celebrations, turn violent in ethiopia. we've had the lightest from addis ababa plus. a welcome back to new zealand visit is from 60 countries, are free to fly in again. after 2 years of a coven closure about pete standard with your sport, a winning store for the bucks, and the worry is in the in be a playoff semi finals. plus some of the biggest names in tennis speak out against one balloons, decision to ban russian and bell russian players. we start this news hour with the evacuation of civilians from east in ukraine where russia is intensifying its bombardment around $100.00 civilians who escaped. the as of styles still works in mary. a poll on sunday heading to the city of separation.
6:02 pm
they are expected to arrive in the next few hours. further evacuations from near by towns are also under way, as alexia bryan reports, crawling out of the rubble of muddy pulse as of style steel plant, and finally on their way to safety. these people have been sheltering and bankers and tunnels underneath the complex, as it came under continuous bombardment by russian forces i need. we've been waiting here for 2 months with the evacuation was part of what the united nations called a safe passage operation during a temporary cease fire agreed by russia and ukraine. this lou folder, the soldiers came underscore, so the 1st 11 people out, those who were seriously ill had asthma or needed insulin. and also 3 of us randomly more than 40 people, including little children, are left there up to a 1000 civilians and 2000 ukrainian fighters. i believe to have ended up inside the
6:03 pm
plant surrounded by russian forces in the last ukrainian held territory in the port city. people who were evacuated, spoke of the terror they experienced and of having to live in darkness for more than 60 days. because when the shell started landing out of a star, i thought my heart would stop and i would not survive it. a ukrainian commander still in the bunker says there's not enough water. and the air smells of decomposing bodies. you're medusa. sure. oh, glad, separate orders. so i hope the evacuations will continue to help our government and a 3rd party, the un mission. the red cross will all try to evacuate all civilians, not only from the plans, but from mario colon general. i also hope to evacuate all the injured and killed use of accurate all soldiers who are here now for those now free relief, but also grief for who and what they may have lost. and so when you look at it,
6:04 pm
there is no house anymore. of course, there isn't who to who all the time we spent and the bunker they were bombing maria pull authority, say a $100000.00 people remain and what's left of the city with hundreds more below ground at the steel works. a factory that's become a symbol of ukrainian resistance. alex o'brien al jazeera. as we mentioned, some evacuate are expected to be taken to the city of zappa's asia. that's where hodder abdel, her maid joins us from her. what more do we know about this operation? while is going very slow and it's not sure at this point whether they will arrive. she day, we've asked you and we've asked the regional administration, they dbhdd move a little bit, but it is as sluggish a drive. i would say they facing several hurdles that they have to go through as
6:05 pm
so as there was anticipation a few hours ago that they would be arriving more or less at this time. now it seems that that may not happen. also, the sun is about to set in about an hour, an hour and a half, and they won't be driving or under darkness. so we still don't know at this point when they will make it past the rush and check boys. at the moment the convoy is under move inside russian occupied territory. what are, what are some of the logistical challenges authorities are trying to navigate here? well this is a vague, complicated agreement that is mediated, that is guaranteed by both the you and, and the international red cross, but they're mediating between 2 bitter enemies, russia and ukraine. they're very das pacific points that both sides won't back
6:06 pm
off from. so at the moment we know that there was that one group of a 100 to a $120.00 that made it out of the factory. it was, they were taken by the a div representatives of the red cross. and then they have to be vetted by the russian. so every getty gets taken to have filtration center. every one gets a background check there. the agreement, only elderly women and children are allowed to get out of there. no wounded soldiers allowed to get out of there and no men in fighting age. and this is also where there's one of the issues because among the civilians that were trapped there, they're also men who were in fighting age who were not a who are not in the army who are not part of the as of regimen. but the russians won't allow that to happen and it is hammered in the agreement and is a series of check boys in at, at re checkpoint. you get it checked through over and over again. and this is what
6:07 pm
people here told us. some of them told us it took 3 days to get out of my or you pull or the areas in the south all or even here in nearby. these upper region does frontline villages. it is very difficult because of the logistics because of the permissions because of the checks as though certainly those who were in the as of style c factory among them is believed. family members of the as of regiment or maybe also family members of those who used to work in that factory. so certainly a complicated issue to you and is not giving much information. we get see get more from the ukrainian side. but after we heard president zalinski just last night, saying that they were a 100 people were out and they would be welcome to day in this parking lot. well that is not happening, hasn't happened so far and we don't think is going to happen today, at least at the moment. that's the information we're given. certainly many of
6:08 pm
moving parts to the story. thank you very much for the update hotter abdel hamid live for us there. civilians, and not only leaving mary a poll, charles strep fit is just outside of deep car on the front line in easton ukraine. he said, what the situation is like for residence flame that town 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 been living in a bunker in the center of town. and we asked them as you can imagine, what their plans were now and how it felt to be to be evacuated after having spent so many days in this bunker. one dear old lady, well in her eighties, utterly distraught, breaking down, saying, please, we just need to move. now. i don't want to die. other younger people, there are a young couple saying that the only plan that they had in place was to get as quickly as possible out of, of the,
6:09 pm
of cur. that group now will be taken over basically a 3 day journey across ukraine to a shelter in the west of ukraine. and from there on, i mean it's, it's basically up to the individuals as to whether they stay in ukraine, whether they indeed have anything organized. i'm that far back from the frontline. as for other fighting across the front, it's the usual towns that we've been reporting about. and from in recent days, towns like lea, man towels like is young towns like curb burial cover. these are all places where russia is trying to mount a big serge, that's according to the ukrainian military towards the areas of savanski. it has been quite in the area that we've been in over the last hour or so. but literally in the last few minutes, we've heard heavy shelling coming from the east ukrainian official say rush and rockets have again struck a strategically important branch in the southwest. it's unclear if the wage remains open. it's the only road and ral link from odessa across the denise to river
6:10 pm
estuary. it's been already targeted twice by waste into ration strikes. to meet choice, give aski is a civilian soldier inaction, either in the north of ukraine. he says the priority is building defenses in the region. when you try to stand that are awesome can start talking from our early john and ball for they continue to bomb our border, mostly of a fighter with their, with ration stamps with the were august legs avenue. and the main responsibility is the fight army. daphne call of russian and also their troops. we need to understand that the russian can start to talk in the anytime people try to, to back home. but many of the private test on the borders
6:11 pm
was destroyed. so for now, we have a problem with the with building materials. so many people just cannot to start to reconstruct bear european union energy menaces are holding an emergency making after russia cut deliveries of gas to poland and bulgaria. some e u. member states are trying to phase out the blocks were lines on russian oil and gas imports. the u gets 40 percent of its natural gas from russia and brings in more than a quarter of its crude oil from man. but now rush is a big is to a you, consumer, germany aims to be fully independent of russian oil imports, light of the c. it's already reduce them from at 35 to 12 percent. but it remains a be consumer of russian gas, but banning russian energy is complicated and not every one is on board. hungry
6:12 pm
relies heavily on russian gas and oil, and is resisting a ban over concerns. it may damage its economy. other countries taking large volumes include italy, austria, and slovakia. all right, let's bring in a dominic cane who joins us live from berlin. hello, they're dumb water energy ministers hoping to achieve during this emergency making the 1st thing they want to do, or trying to do is to provide reassurance to those 2 countries. emily was saying the who found themselves because they're all prepared or have not been prepared to pay rubles to the russian providers of natural gas, have found themselves effectively facing a shut down shut off of russian gas. it's worth making the point that those 2 countries say they're not particularly concerned immediately because the nature of the seasons changing, it's now spring in europe and sunny weather warmer temperatures. so the need for
6:13 pm
gas for century eating is much lower. but the, the key issue here is how can the use apply energy to countries around its members, states, if it's not going to be russian energy, what sort of reassurance is, can be put in place? there is the thought that there may be some sort of oil embargo coming from the you, but the question would be, what sort of caveats would be in place? what sort of things keeping it in check, what sort of loopholes exceptions might there be? that's the suggestion coming from several different sources who are close to this missing saying that that might come out dominate the devil is in the days al, isn't it? what will be some of the sticking points to say will here's the thing. there are some countries, notably the hungarians, who are very resistant indeed to the idea of some sort of embargo,
6:14 pm
which would almost immediately unilaterally switch off energy supplies. because as you were saying in the introduction, emily, because they say would have potentially a crippling effect on their economy. but it is worth making. the point that here in germany, that sort of suggestion was being made several months ago. the start of the war in ukraine that this would be potentially destructive to the economy. and yet now the government here has changed its tune very dramatically. so they've already phased out or greed to phase out coal in the embargo by august. they're now sing oil by the end of the summer and saying gas potentially by the end of the year, or maybe a little bit later than that. as i said, the problem here is the caveats. what sorts of guarantee could there be? we might, some suggestions have been made that maybe countries which are land locked wouldn't be part of the oil embargo. so that would be the hungarians, the checks potentially the slovak ins, because the countries are landlocked,
6:15 pm
they wouldn't necessarily be part of an export. whereas the countries of the e, which have coastlines, will, they would, that's one suggestion. it's not confirmed, but it gives you a sense of the difficulty that the e u faces, as a block, trying to come up with a solution. a one size fits all when there are some who say that they just don't like the size of the nature of the problem right now. yes, thank you so much for breaking it down for us and those energy ministers will be holding a press conference. next. allison, i doubt, we'll chat you a little later on. tom nick came land for us in building rushes at foreign minister sergey lab. rob has caused controversy by suggesting nazi later at of hitler, had julie sure it's, that's prompted is round to summon roches ambassador the talks. lebrands also said the ukrainian presidents g. heritage, does him to contradict moscow's claims. the country is run by nazis. he added that some of the worst anti semitic, semi jews claims that hitler was pot. jewish is
6:16 pm
a theory widely dismissed by historians. poland president andre dude has welcomed the speaker of the us house in war. so nancy pelosi arrived from ukraine's capital cave, where she pledged america's backing until victory over russia. let's cross to kimberly hell kit who's standing by for us in washington, d. c. kimberly how has speaking nancy pelosi. sorry. how speaker nancy pelosi was in keith and has now spent the day in poland. what has she been doing during this time? oh well this is really a message the rather a visit that is designed to send a message and it comes on the heels of visits by other high profile by the administration. officials. you recall in recent weeks there was the visit by the secretary of state antony lincoln as well as defense secretary lloyd austin. so now we have the speaker of the house, nancy pelosi and she is accompanied by quite
6:17 pm
a few members of congress as well. and what this is, is, this is really a message of support for ukraine that is designed to show vladimir putin that the united states. and this partners and allies will continue to support ukraine and that that support will not be going away. so to that end, what we also know is that the u. s. president is going to be doing his own show of support here in the united states on tuesday, he'll be traveling to the us state of alabama to a manufacturing plant where the javelin anti tank missiles are made. and once again, all of this is carefully choreographed in order to show that really in the west, specifically the united states has economic, as well as military and humanitarian support. a slave for ukraine for the long term . and kimberly, we've been hearing about the u. s. planning to send mo, financial support to ukraine. how else is washington planning to help?
6:18 pm
yeah, you're right. because the $13600000000.00 that initially had been allocated is almost exhausted. so the u. s. president, now ask in congress for another 33000000000 that still has to be approved. but what i can tell you is that there are other sort of measures that are going on to continue to provide support for ukraine. for example, the diplomatic track, if you will, is continuing to be operational. in other words, diplomatic activities that were taking place in ukraine temporarily moved to poland are now resuming inside ukraine. and we're hearing from the acting ambassador u. s. and bastard to ukraine, that in fact there may be a reopening of the embassy and keeps that is very significant because it's been sort of not fully operational since about february adding to that we know that the
6:19 pm
1st lady, dr. joe biden is expected to on sunday travel to slovakia. this is what we know and . 8 large number of ukraine refugees, specifically mothers and children have fled. now it's mother's day on sunday here in the united states with that is why this visit is time for that day. and once again, this is just something to project the support of the united states and as people for the ukrainian people who are struggling in the midst of the russian invasion of ukraine. again, all carefully choreographed in order to show us and western support. thank you for bringing us up to speed. kimberly, how could i white house correspondent, the any more head on this news hour, including as williams around the world celebrate, eat al fitter we look at, we have a report from the occupied east, jerusalem by palestinians gather to prey amid a recent tension. un secretary general coals on 3, west african nations to return to civilian rule will bring you the lightest on

6:22 pm

6:25 pm
well, it's important to know that he's coming to west africa after having been in ukraine . and this, he's trying to draw the attention that what's happening in europe will affect people in africa, specifically on the food shortage front front and the looming famines that could happen in the region as a result. that's why he's going to visit those displace. but it's interesting that he went to new jerry to make this press conference a country where there was a democratic and peaceful transition of power in 2021, a country that has also been badly affected by climate change. and he's really drawn the attention and pointed to the finger to rich countries for failing to provide or failing on their promises to provide funds for 4 people in the share, for instance, to deal with the effect of climate change. a country where there's been drought,
6:26 pm
where there's been very little rainfall and add to that increased attacked by arm groups linked to iceland, acadia and those groups are trying to control resources such as water that has been increasingly at stake in violent conflict in the region. and the climate change was something that is important in this visit. also financing that he to, he talks about. and he says that the global financial system was made by the rich and serves the rich. and the fall out of it is that many people will suffer specifically here on in west africa. emily, many priorities to deal with. thank you very much for that update because hawk live for us in the car. there were wanting government says a law suit being pursued against them in the us by the family of a man who in spite of the hollywood film a hotel were wonder, is baseless pull recessive. again, his family is suing for $400000000.00. they say he was lowered from his home in the

6:34 pm
of gas to poland and bulgaria. some member states have tried to phase out the books reliance on russian oil and gas. and the un secretary general has called for return to civilian rule and became foster gimme and molly or tre recently experienced military code. antonio good care is, is on the 2nd treat a visit to west africa. let's return now to the latest on the ukraine war and we joined, lived from a cave by elio and scrum. she's a member of ukrainian parliament and we own a thanks so much for being on the program. you went recently to butcher and that area has become synonymous with the word atrocities. what did you witness? and what did people say to you about their experience? well unfortunately i had to go to the cia and to other cities across key
6:35 pm
a region to the north of ki, of which is less known, but even worse in their state. like bar duncan, we also have a hampton big team of investigators and prosecutors work in there right now on witnessing and talking to the witnesses of for crimes and atrocities, not just ukrainians, but it's super important to us. and sarah, international investigators who comes there, we have a group of french investigators. they're also asking for another group to join us. and basically what you see, you know, when you see it in the pictures, it does not the same that when you say in person, we have witnessed that 1st exclamations of bodies from brave of more than 250 people who were buried in the most brave women and children, none of them aware, is there by accident. so all of them were shots in the heads. a lot of them tortured before. and obviously when you see that, you know, there are no words to describe. i saw that it was overall in history books for us.
6:36 pm
and when it happens right now in ukraine, in my country, just search kilometers from where i am now, where i live in keith. all this was, this is absolutely horrifying. experience to see a lot of women also start to tell us that they've been raped during this russian occupation. and we're trying to talk to them before a difficult psychologically, to get the evidence as and to get witness testimonies of what was going on, your examination as to men and women and children who have been rates and obviously is gonna take a lot. a lot of work to actually give it to the international tribunal on court. but i believe that every one of the russian soldiers, every one of the russian officials who had ordered those work firms should be held responsible and should be facing some kind of war through. janelle, yes, speaking of those wall crimes, tell us a little bit about, i mean, there are thousands of probes underway at the moment. how can these accountability efforts be coordinated and what will they amount to up?
6:37 pm
well just last week the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe have boarded for a certain. 7 international tribunal should be established. we cannot unfortunately rely on the international criminal court. 7 because all of those efforts were blocked and would be blocked by russia in the security council. so unfortunately, this tells us that the security council of the un can not stove those crimes, cannot stop. nobody from committing crimes does international law can not, well cannot, cannot really do any think about those atrocities and those who are crimes. there needs to be a special trip been all established. and also i think that tells us that we need to re sick. 7 to rethink the whole international order, which was established was about 70 years since the world so that nowhere is the world we see such cases of, you know, it's just one dictator, one country who has the power or and who is willing to, to greg the law to commit atrocities, to kill civilian, to kill women and children,
6:38 pm
to shell, the hospitals and kindergartens for them to be responsible for, for any actions like that. and i think it's very important to understand that this is the word not about you pray. it is a war about the whole international security order that we saw it worked when you it really didn't. but right now we face reality that it doesn't work, it didn't work. and we need to produce some things. it was a no other countries worlds or no other nation faces what we're facing today. ayana, we're expecting to hear from e. u. energy ministers in the next hour or so. they've been meeting in brussels. what are you hoping comes out of those crisis talks? well unfortunately, i've actually just been to brussels a week ago in the diplomatic mission. and unfortunately, i have to say that some of the european countries are completely not prepared to cut off gas for russia federation. 7 then only they start to realize that all of
6:39 pm
the guests agreement and the nurse string to where not about guess we're not about economic agreement. people call it already. and it was all, you know, a possibility for russia to control those countries and actually control the very important guess applies with our economy. only now they start to realize it, and only one foolish was cut off for rushing guess. so why should deal with german and austrian coal expense report, which was always what, what she knew if fortune counts, guess, wait for you. and if we can use this at the web, but as a weapon, because he always does use all its nomic agreements and all of the gas possibilities as a weapon of war. so what would you do then? as they found out they were completely not prepared, right? now they have to get spent right now they have to find a way on the embargo, russian moreland guess, and it's ruled, but it will not be easy for them. some of them. well, we appreciate your insight. thank you. thank you for taking the time to speak to us on this news. our aliana screw me a member of ukrainian parliament live for us in thieves. as we heard
