6:04 pm
uphold, is now in ruins. and ukraine says tens of thousands of people have died. victoria gate and be al jazeera us. i beg line for us now in denny po for more i said to was this for me as of solstio plant, was this a negotiated evacuation or a mass surrender, or maybe both? well if you listen to the ukrainians as far as they're concerned, this is a negotiation negotiator for me that they will be exchanged. so the formula is severely wounded. ukrainian, severely wounded russians, not 53 of those wounded. ukrainian soldiers have been taken to russian back separatist areas. those areas are controlled by them, and $211.00 also have been taken care is controlled by russia. now, the ukrainian defense meant that said that there is a potential return them to ukraine and control territory. as far as russia is
6:05 pm
concerned. this is a victory. they now controlled by recalls. they have the importer, 9 cargo to an ex crimea, as rather significant victory for that strategic important port city. this has gone on for a number of months, and in fact, the weakness, specifically as of so clients and those ukranian fighters had appealed for a 3rd party to intervene to try to get them out. but the fights of the remaining, they're refusing to surrender and lay down their arms and again, hoping for a 3rd party to intervene. so they can get out again, some of those fight that have a choose, the ukranian government are really letting them down or forgetting about them. i'm blaming politician. so the politicians and you will read this, i of release, not at the nice those have been going to have been evacuated at a name while the international criminal court prosecutor has sent a team of investigators to ukraine. what moreno in that front?
6:06 pm
well, we know that they said essential or to, to investigate does include investigative forensic soft support, soft to investigate allegations of crimes, things asian by russia. now what they've said is that this will help them investigate and look into what's been taking place in place, not just allegations against russia, although the bulk of those are the cases against russia in terms of those mass graves that we've seen in china. and also the case of mass based in variable, but also the obligation because the korean military of torturing and executing prisoners of war. so that's what they've said, but also the same from the still strikes, taking costs across the country, the north of the country. a people who group and 12 and it strikes, and that just shows that the battles may be over in terms of mary paul, but the war continues high thanks as a big lie for us in denito let's get the russian defective on the latest
6:07 pm
developments and marable, both jibari has more from moscow. it was only over the past 24 hours that we understand it with the assistance of the united nations as well as the international committee of the red cross. they were able to and get the injured fighters out finally. and we understand there were still many of the ukrainian fighters fighter still left, but most of them are injured. and now this is a process that is ongoing. according to the russian defense ministry. of course, mary, opal a is a very strategically important as port city. it is an area that russia claimed they were in full control of. in late april, it links crimea, which russia annexed in 2014 to the dumbass region. and then on to russia, it is a land quarter that this country was looking to establish. and this was one of the final remaining issues that these fighters were a prolonging their full and victory for the russian military in mariel. pal,
6:08 pm
now it seems that the evacuation is underway and so it really is going to be a victory for the russian military to say that they have now full control of mary elbow. which then means they will be able to establish that much at needed land quarter from crimea all the way across to russia. ukraine seldom holds the div. odessa has strong historical links to russia, and many people there still identify as russian, but ukrainian official say some local collaborators are helping the kremlin war if it was supplying sensitive information about that meets, has been out with the police swan team and has this report sh with the 33rd asleep this ukrainians, what deem sets up on his daily mission going after people suspected of having links with russia. drama the nightly curfew is about to be lifted. they assured the person of interest is to let oh yes,
6:09 pm
certainly knew. oh no sir. hora, deluca doria. but generally, we have people in odessa who supports russia. we found weapons and ammunitions they were planning to use once the russian army arrived in the city. when you to d stay, but the situation and use against a local official, suffolk atoria. they have connections to the russian military, b dablin, you know, liquor does a, russia, ukraine has been under martial laws since the beginning of the war. the government believes that informants are helping the russian army underground. said this has become their main task, going from home to home in the hunt for possible collaborators. this man turned out to be innocent. but on the 2nd raid, the man opened the door wearing a t shirt from his days as a soldier in the soviet army shall listen warrior the worst case scenario. do you have any russian em blends or symbols? they asked yes, no, he denies. but in the next room,
6:10 pm
they find the russian colors and his computer reveals he is following russia, news outlets band in ukraine since the start of the war. and when pressed about the conflict on $1000000000.00, we were shooting dope boss for 8 years. and now they are forming us in return is law. who is right, who is wrong? i don't know, asked the politicians will know someone will it or what them bullshit. but his message is on his phone that aroused the most suspicion, glorifying the russian military's past and present. and talking about the ukrainian army in a they were going to have way acknowledge is having a big role in this war. there are several apps and chat rooms where citizens can submit photos, videos and information about people or vehicles they deem suspicious. cyber investigator sift through hundreds of tips every day was verified. they pass
6:11 pm
on the information to the swat team. ukraine claims at more than $700.00 collaborators have been detained, and dozens of acts of sabotage have been disrupted so far. but it's a fine line, especially places like odessa, which share historical roots with russia. it's a difficult situations. vit lana tells us as her husband is taken away, lena, i do not agree with the war, but we lived in soviet union. i'm half russian. how can i throw the russian flag away? yeah, yes, i don't agree. i don't understand what's going on, but this is my blood work. should i have a bottom me to raise it? it's more difficult for him because all his army veteran friends are there. there are still people in ukraine were torn between the 2 identities condemning rushes attack on the country, but not able to disavow their past. most of the people question on that they will
6:12 pm
let go to the police. the task of figuring out who poses a real threat is a challenge with abdul hamid al jazeera odessa and more hair on the news are including on the alerts. why u. s. troops are being sent back to somalia, reversing a decision by donald trump. a problem that won't go away from disagreements of a northern ireland causing headaches for diplomats in brussels. and in sport, tiger woods returns to spotlight for the 2nd golf major of the year. ah, reformers, candidates, 11 all have a big gains and sundays parliamentary elections. official was also confirmed around back has bull up and its allies have lost their majority. saudi align lebanese forces party have also made gains to become the biggest christian block. that hold reports from beirut. many of the old faces are back when
6:13 pm
a meaningful number of new ones made it into lebanon's parliament, which now has a new balance of power. the iranian back has been a party and its allies lost their majority, but no other political grouping or party can claim victory. the opposition may be sizable, but not united. what is a 1st, however, and post civil war politics are the so called reformists, who want at least 10 percent of the seats. these are candid, it's not affiliated to any of the mainly sectarian parties. we have to be ers ers, the king, her maker. oh, because we have not. we don't have to be in the polarization. we have to create a bridge. ah, those new voices will stand in the middle of long time enemies. tensions have already spilled onto the streets. supporters of rival parties fought on election day 3 alerted local observers, also documented attacks on their teams by supporters,
6:14 pm
mostly from she. our groups has bella, and among many observers with the so many pressures, especially in the electoral districts of south and bol buckhead mal by some of parties, delegates, and each us and even supporters. the she, our groups may have preserved the $27.00 seats allocated to their sect, but observer say they can no longer claim sol representation. but they did everything they counter intimidates, voters candidates and their representatives and constituencies. and at the same time, those are also a, an alternative she or vote. so as a she or vote which went outside the box and through their opponents. and that happened for the 1st time in spite of their attempts to keep it contained through the ballot box. there is no doubt change has begun, but the old divide has bala and its allies on one hand and the christian lebanese forces on the other hasn't gone away. lebanon's leaders will need to work together
6:15 pm
to agree on a new government and elect a president in a few months. political deadlock is not unusual in this fractured country, but there is an urgent need to adopt performs and laws to rescue a collapse economy and a polarized parliament won't make that easy. the divide dates back to the civil war which ended in 1990 after which power was divided between sects. but lebanon's parliamentary democracy is in reality a consensual democracy. unanimity is needed for the system to work and peace to be maintained than the ushers. eda, beirut, joining us now from beirut is newly reelected mp port. you could be all, thank you very much for your time. so so your backend in parliament, what do you think is the message here from voters, when you look at how they voted across the board? well, this is, i am, i'm back in the parliament to with the law. and i hope this bill could be a destructive, not 400 years in this country. we seen the same families,
6:16 pm
the same parties, the same mindset, always in the parliament and the power. this time i am hoping things are changing. people are looking for new blogs for new ideas. people are looking for groups and parties that are not in the united country and for one nation, this country is this is ever divided between, between sex. and each leader is making sure every day to secure the secretary and base. and that's why they keep on keeping a few monitoring bigotry teachers between the knees. so we do what it looks differently and hopefully we can convince the newspaper to, to start electing the garages and elect thought it would change to this country and, and you don't really know how much change do you feel you can really enact out as
6:17 pm
our correspond it was reporting there, the old divide, his blood, its allies, on one hand, the christian lebanese forces on the other that, that divide remain. so how much change do you think you will really be able to enact when they, when they, when they, when they were not invited for 17 years with jesus of the vision and then understanding and concessions and working together they, they were together in many governments and we are worried that again after this election, they will go back to the business as usual, and getting back to, you know, some understanding how they will do the power sharing and how they will divide. whatever of the case is left in this country. the realization in this country is those that will not do any concessions with the mafia. we call them the mafia,
6:18 pm
march 8th, and 14 parties. since 2016. they are working together on, you know, having the upper hand in the country and doing use instead of the me real but it is and really change or the but on the tree. so we're not thinking science. we are again. and he illegal arm. we want to see a southern country, but we will stick to whatever we believe in and who is courses and others. they will also keep their promises and we will see them continuing the campaign that we saw it during this election. we'll be working together also on on many fight. i try to doesn't 1819 when i was in the parliament to work with these blocks on many wrong. and it was to renew it. they like to to have to
6:19 pm
be synchronized on it. i really wanted to put the country and they were, they were together as we then synchronized so i hope they wouldn't keep doing what's right for the country and then that will be working to get i thank you very much. your time that is new. the re elected m p paula jacobi on to us democratic congressmen are pushing for an f b. i investigation into the killing a veteran elders or a journalist sharina blocker. the us citizen was shot dead by israeli forces while on assignment in the occupied westbank. on wednesday, the debt has sparked global condemnation and calls to denounce photography journalists, congressmen, andre coffin, and do korea are in the process of gathering signatures for the motion. here as
6:20 pm
president joe biden has arrived in buffalo to meet families of saturdays shooting victims, 10 people were killed in the racially motivated attack. a document promoting white supremacist views that was re, reportedly posted by the gunman, emerged online, off the shooting for the bite, and is expected to call on congress to take action on gun ownership. play cross live to share for tansy who's following biden's visit in buffalo. she hop on us through prison bought in time for the day and how he's being received. well, president, by the 1st lady, i spent several minutes of this make sure memorial maybe supermarket where the attack took place. and then they were joined by a local political delegation which involved chuck schumer, the senate majority leader, the governor of new york, kathy and others. and then they drove from here to a community center where they are currently meeting now with the bereaved and
6:21 pm
family members who that is expected last for a few hours. now i think we were told that by being bite and of course he, we very much involved in that. so that for morning process of grieving for the victims, although we do expect a harder edge to emerge as the visit goes on with a speech a bit later on. yeah. with that speech, is he expected to talk specifically about, you know, targeted race? is the tax terrorism motivated by by hateful ideology? is the phrase that we've seen floating around from for his for his stuff. i think he's been trying actually in some ways to hawk back to why he iran, for president weiss, as he ran for president in the 1st place, which was the remedy that the racist rally in charlottesville in 202017. where those with our tiki torches was saying, very similar to things that we saw in the manifesto,
6:22 pm
the screed written by the gunman. here that there is, there is a great replacement underway. the democrats are trying to encourage immigration, illegal, immigration, in order to replace indigenous white people with people who will be more favorable to that. and this is, this is a theory that has gained a great deal of traction. it'll be interesting to see whether how specific biting will be as he calls out these sorts of races. white supremacist fairies, especially some several republicans. some one of them very senior in the house have been talking about the great replacement theory rather nonchalantly. matter of fact, the tucker coast on fox news, we mentioned quite a bit. they say look bad, nothing to do with an attack like this because that talking about illegal migrants, undocumented microsoft, i'm talking about african americans. however, the debate as well. do we believe that or do we see this is a thinly veiled dog for white supremacy and races about the debate, but goes on. but we'll see how specific he is about that. then we'll talk about domestic terrorism,
6:23 pm
the efforts he's been putting into that. that's also quite controversial amongst cross roots, folks you say look what you're doing without that kind of action is just putting ever more money into the security forces, the police and the f, b i and others who would tend to target black people that the major source of violence against black people in america is the police so that, that's actually not necessarily the most safe grounds of the grassroots activists that, that we tend to speak to. and then we took generally about hate crimes and hate speech, but hate speech is protected under the constitution. and this would uphold and go to actually progresses. believe that that you can have a government deciding what is a solution, what is the, as is often the case, we do see so many currents in into sectioning. when we see a shooting like this. but then when we talk about the things you can all make on depending rates america, we'll talk about some of the other things which perhaps grassroots activists are looking for what we have to see. but certainly here hasn't been able to push through any great reforms since he came into power. so that's one of the risks of raising the reason he became president. because if anything, the fact like,
6:24 pm
let's say, so that leaves achieve shepherd only. thank you. and the u. s president joe biden is sending troops back to somalia to help fight against the group. i'll shut off. the reversal of the decision made by donald trump follows the election of a new smalley president on shake. mahmud is taking charge of the warning on sunday with a security lockdown to prevent attacks. malcolm web isn't because my o in southern somalia says us truth, the redeploying from nearby countries with us says they'll carry on what they were doing to and a half years ago. before donald trump remove them, which include training, the somali armed forces, the american troops meant to be engaging in combat, but they can provide some kind of support from behind the lines. when the somali national army is fighting the on group policy, bob, there are other elements to the us military operation here that includes drones
6:25 pm
strikes which have flown from bases in japan, city and the state department says this is much more effective if it has its soldiers here actually on the ground with donald trump, didn't actually take them back to america. he just moved them from somalia to neighboring countries to booty and kenya. and so this redeployment will bring them back here to somalia. a prime minister appointed by libby as eastern based parliament has now left tripoli after fighting between rival groups. 40 chalka and several ministers. arrived in the capital earlier in the day. take control of the government from the western administration. but the unity governments, led by the tripoli based prime minister of the humming baby, has refused to see power. according cassini is a senior libya analyst at the international crisis group. she says a serious public discontent to wouldn't libby as elliptical class. well, i think it'll be a, it'll have a negative impact in the sense that as long as fatty busha go,
6:26 pm
who's backed by the military factions in eastern libya and the parliament as long as he sort of refrain from using violence to enter tripoli by force. there was room for a negotiation between the 2 broad camps, but now that he has once again, this is his 2nd time tried to enter tripoli and establish himself there in his government that and yet again failed and was pushed back. i think the patience of the tripoli, basal authorities, has, has run thin. it means that they will be less likely to embark in talks or accept talks as they would be hardened towards a funny busha and his allies. and i think honestly the chances of a chicago to claim that he will come to power and he will take over tripoli at this point i did, it will be a blow. so for the u. n. lead talks taking place in the, in cairo, where certainly tensions will have increased the this morning because of these
6:27 pm
developments in them. in tripoli. fortunately, over the past few months since the failed election of last december, when, when it was cooled off, i really grown man a less am confident in the political future of their country. they are disappointed . they don't see even a benefit in engaging politically because they see that the future of the country in the hands of a small elite that is taking the country in one direction on another. they see the country on the precipice. also another financial disruption because political crisis means closure of oil terminals. it means that, you know salaries will be delayed and possibly means inflation rise. and this is happening already against the backdrop of rising living cost because of the war in ukraine, which has pushed up grain prices and basic commodity prices. so overall, a very grim outlook for your average. libyan still ahead on algebra to follow the
6:28 pm
plot of people in north korea following a major cove at 900 outbreak their impressions. queen elizabeth opened the newest addition to the london underground. find out why thumb a critical i think the project at a parent's need with a link to michael jordan. go off the auction details later installs. ah ah hey, there are debt storms have really been a big problem across the middle east. let me show you right off the bat, so this is in iraq, the sandstorm so far in the past month, thousands of people in hospital and the winds are now carrying this through the ruby in peninsula, so we'll pick up the story there. so these arrows, that's the way, and it's going to be particularly bad for the eastern province of saudi bahrain.
6:29 pm
and katherine, especially when you consider doha, we'll see those windows of about 60 kilometers per hour, not just wednesday, but into thursday as wall. that's our picture for that dusty and he's the skyline temperatures are above average here. got to talk about that heats in pockets. time starting to dial it up. so here we are on wednesday, jacob, about $46.00 degrees. and i think by friday, we are very likely to see temperatures in the fifty's again, so dark or the red, the hard, the temperature, new op shot. we've got in for 50 degrees off to turkey. and we're going to get striped with some follow bands of rain around the boss for a see those winds pick up as well for it's stumble with the high 24 degrees. central africa looks like this. it's quieter toward the east. it's western areas where we've got these storms flaring up, and for south africa, big change in temperatures and keep down with the rain moving in and a height of 20 degrees c later. ah, the,
6:30 pm
from the front blind al jazeera correspondence continue to report every angle of the war in ukraine. we've been given access to this special unit. making sure there's no threats behind both front lines. there's almost no complete destruction of fighting back a russian assault holding background forces. the scale of destruction is just now being revealed as we arrived makalya there is panic. a russian warplane is suspected of being close by. stay with al jazeera, for the latest developments. both african stories of resilience and courage. i get younger piano right, with a lawyer that tradition and dedication to live without a little more robust. 3rd of august, when you entered short documentary, sty, african filmmakers on the white 9. and the put make it africa direct on al
6:31 pm
jazeera lou. ah, ah, what's your dessert reminder of our top story is this. our grains military command says the mission to defend the as of salt steel plant is over. or the $260.00 ukranian vices have be brought out from a law stronghold of resistance in the city of mariposa. russia says they surrendered and peas and finland have overwhelmingly backs a bid to join nato. government plans to file a formal application within days long sweden. they to remember say they want to fast track. both applications has blind its allies and lebanon, have lost their majority in parliament, results from sundays, elections are made against the lebanese forces party. the christian group aligned
6:32 pm
to saudi arabia, several anti establishment candidates, one seats. 2. let's go back to our top story. as you just heard, more than 260 ukrainian vices have been brought out of the us of style steel plant and mario pulp. we're joined now by don mathias graham, also the think electorate insecurity and development at kings college london. thank you very much for your time. so do you think this was just a straight up surrendering, or do you think bare has been some kind of agreement reached with russia for a planned evacuation? yes, i think that as of was noted by presidency lensky, there were clearly some sort of agreement that there will be a prisoner exchange even though there's so the asked of a hospitalist which are located, you know, was all we g i c t which is on the russian occupation, so there was a big question mark now,
6:33 pm
which is being raised is whether russia is going to fulfill the sort of these prisoner exchange agreement, which apparently was that was agreed with president savanski. when that is obviously, what president polanski says about russia says that this was a surrendering. so if indeed this is some sort of negotiation, do you think russia would uphold it? thought because the other, the other battalion itself is they did the battalion in particular that roger accuses of having nazi ideals. i was yes. i mean russia has that really? i mean, i would say president bush and has a tradition of not really respecting many of the humanitarian agreements that she agreed assigned to in the past. also in relation to humanitarian corridors around cities in ukraine during the last 2 or 3 months. so there is nothing new i of russia not really respecting many of the agreements regarding evacuation of
6:34 pm
civilians. i'm digressing too many times a she many terry and i mention so i'm not very optimistic about it. of course, from the russian perspective, it's very, very convenient to choose to sort of a portray this fight as us are not to fight does to hold some kind of show trial. now there a story that they should not be exchanged on. there's even talk among some russian deputies in the parliament that the death penalty should be applied to them. so obviously, i mean, i think here we, i, most of you that it is, the russians are, are in egan on their, on their agreement. and if they really, i mean, i think these fighters were ready. yeah. mostly to fight to the very end. and as president zillions, he made clear he's trying to save as many lives as possible. and the last thing he would one day still have the so yes, sort of parade in russia. i sort of prisoners of war and i'm not see,
6:35 pm
i'm not see fighters. so i mean, i would be very surprised that there wasn't some kind of agreement behind this. i think we're going to with the united nations on the right cross, which apparently were part of the negotiation. ok. and tom's all the fighting on the ground, all the shelling of various cities. we saw obviously the image is from cognitive where it was shocking, then the image is coming out of mary paul, the focus on mary paul shocking. where do you think that focus for russia will be shifting to next? when we know now that a lot of the fighting is now taking place in the area of the boss around the area, the better than yes and why there's been quite a lot of foaming over the last few days. the russians have been trying to move further to the west on trying to cross some of the rivers, but they haven't been very successful as we know not last week. they suffered massive casualties when, when trying to cross on one of the rivers to move further to,
6:36 pm
to the west. and at the same time you bring in force is also trying to move the out in the opposite direction, move further, further east for us. and they also facing some kinds of problems also with crossing some variables, the latest news seems that they may be managing, but these are reports that have not been fully confirmed. so i think at this moment we see quite an, an intensified taking place around the areas of, of the don't boss in the area of civic or them yet. i think the also the, the c w m is an area where the ukrainians might try to push forward. on the other hand, there's sort of more southern areas around here on, on me live. that's an area where the russians have not been able to move further towards the west towards all day. so i think we can expect ukrainians to try to push in that direction as well. i think we can also expect the efforts by ukrainians to try to, to live in some way the blockade of the black sea so that they can start so for
6:37 pm
exporting their products. and i would expect that here is an area where, you know, a western allies of ukraine would try also to, in some way see what can be done. it's very difficult for z maintenance to not have a navy, but this is an issue which reflects, you know, that is not the need also to have ukrainian food problem products, reach global market. so this is an issue which is of concern to the whole and to the whole world because, you know, the plane is a very significant waived on many for our country products. were saying were things around the world. we are seeing food prices around the world rising. i will have to leave that time. thank you very much for your time. so melissa graham also from king's college on the british foreign secretary list ross says he intends to introduce new legislation to change parts of the northern ireland protocol that was warmed the u. k. again, trying to alter the post brakes trade deal on its own. all the islands,
6:38 pm
pro british democratic unionist party is also opposed to move there being warnings of a trade war if no agreement is reached, john hall has more from northern ireland main shipping course. one moment of context for you that is land behind me, the c port that checks going on on goods arriving in northern ireland from great britain checks that exist under the post briggs in northern ireland protocol, a new customs arrangement effective the customs board down the irish sea that is at the hawk now of an escalating dispute between the u. k and the e u. lease trust putting forward britain's the u. k. government next step in what is of course, also a very serious situation here in northern ireland power sharing government under the good friday peace agreement has stalled, has broken down with the democratic unionist party boycotting in opposition to the northern ireland protocol that they say undermines northern islands place within
6:39 pm
