or that they are called this not done. i started or worked, but i wanted to issue a short statement. and it essentially is a statement of gratitude to all of those who have been with us in this long and sometimes very difficult journey. you the 10 candidates are running, but for the presidency venue, it's widely considered a 2 person race, vice president, lenny robledo, who is also the leader of the opposition, is trailing behind marcus junior. initial results show a lead, so wide pool experts believe it is unlikely. robledo can catch up case ending up was up in the wilder. i'm with you in the belief that the elections must respect the full voice and well of the people my life. it is important that the people continued their belief and respect for democracy. more than 60000000 filipinos voted for the successor to president rodrigo, to 30 in one of ages,

12:07 pm
say that it has only be made possible because of a misinformation campaign now, but of course if you ask an marcos supports, his mark was junior supporters. it is a time to celebration in the early hours of tuesday morning, and some of them were there outside marco's campaign headquarters in manila, chanting, marco's juniors name, waving flags. it's quite hard to say, with a certain degree of certainty, what sort of policies are hidden. his visit ministration and incoming administration will have because the marcus campaign has been very thin on details and that has been very limited media engagement, at least where macos junior is concerned. but there are certain remarks that he's made that we've been able to glean now he's likely to be pro china, just like its predecessor due today. he's also likely to am he, but he's also said he supposed to 10 days, controversial war on drugs which has killed thousands of people. the mirror mirror poll says at least a 100 civilian men,

initially, the president charles michelle visited odessa today, he saw with his own eyes what the block see me with for the 1st time in decades in odessa there is no usual movement at the merchant fleet. no port work, ordinary life connected with the sea is blocked by russia, and this is a blow not only to ukraine, without our agricultural exports. dozens of countries around the world are already on the brink of food shortages. and overtime, the situation can become frankly terrible. the u. s. is accused russia president vladimir putin of trying to rewrite history during his speech to martin victory de the annual celebration of the defeat of nazi germany in 1945 ended with flowers display in moscow. earlier putin led the traditional parade and he told russian forces fighting in ukraine for the motherland and its future. he didn't denounce victory in ukraine, nor give any indication when he thought the war might end. what we saw president couldn't do is, is, is give
12:10 pm
