6:06 pm
they are still some of those ukrainians soldiers still in at that plant. now, the presidency lensky has said that the military intelligence and the most influential international mediators are trying to negotiate or talk to try to give a church right to be involved in the evacuation of those remaining fighters. now they have said that they will not surrender an answer, and there's not a word that ukraine has used in, even for those that have been taken to russian. hel territory. the, the words that are being used by the ukrainians is that they have completed their mission. and this is a very politically charged issue, though those fighters are seen as are defending mary polis are making this heroic stand. and many of them went on line when though at a, at the as of steel plant saying that they felt like they were let down by the politicians in care of. so it's important for ukraine to at least try to see that they're doing their best to try to get those remaining fighters evacuated as for those that have been taken to rush and separate
6:07 pm
a russian back separatist areas. well, the ukraine is a saying that there is a exchange program, a formula, and what we've heard from the ukrainians is that there will be a some sort of exchange for seriously wounded ukrainians for in exchange for seriously wounded russians when that will take place and how that will take place as of yet is not clear. and i said, what's the situation where you are and, and in the east, in terms of fighting what is destiny intensify their raid sirens currently going off for we were hearing come across just under a week ago. and the situation has drastically changed. in fact, recon constantly here are to reflect a missiles are going out and in and just not far from her room. a tangled mood that the mayor of that town has asked the residents to evacuate and load the ukrainians . have had some success. in fact success in the harkey region in the offensive here, it's thought that the situation situation has deteriorated,
6:08 pm
especially over the last few days. chromatism has been getting hit by russian fire as well as bach moved nikolai of ker co, where we were again just and drew a week ago. so it feels like the russians are making some gains here in the don bus region and, and the people here are some people are being evacuated, especially from pacer buttonwood, but even kraemer tools, because like a goes ton, that used to have a population of 200000 that's been reduced 240000 me understand more people are still leaving simply because they feel that the russians are getting closer. ok, i said baker in their crime a talk. thanks for that update. let sir, get the view from moscow now with the door such a bar in the door. so what was said in the russian parliament, the duma, about the marble still thought well, there was a move by as a country's prosecutor on edge tuesday to ask the courts to declare the as of
6:09 pm
italian a terrorist organization. and since that request, we've been hearing from a number of high ranking lawmakers in the lower house of parliament, that is the state duma. and they've made their views very clear. according to the speaker of dumont the nazi criminals, as he called them. they are not to be exchanged for any russian soldiers because they need to be put on trial. we've also been hearing from another senior lawmaker and by the name of lee, annoyed as so ski, who is also part of russia's negotiating scene with ukraine. he had some much were and severe views. he called the as of saw as of battalion and animals in human form, he said that the death penalty should be brought back for them as also they should be put in as through international courts and to go through trials because of the alleged war crimes and they've committed against russian forces. now we understand, and this is certainly the view when it comes to the lawmakers. we've also been
6:10 pm
hearing from a number of local media outlets over the past 24 hours. and the view is very much the same in set up. what we expected would be a celebration of russia's final or 1st official victory in a large area. that is mariel full in the strategic port town. that is so important . we're now hearing of what people think should be done with these are a ukrainian fighters that are now in russian custody. so for the time being, it is not clear whether or not any exchanges will take place that would involve members of the as of battalion that are in russian custody. but for now, and the view here is that they should not be exchanging those fighters for our russian soldiers and daughter, how odd diplomatic talks going between moscow and que well, for the time being there not, and that is a 1st since they began at a discussion between the 2 sides on february 28th, just a few days after
6:11 pm
a russia launch, their so called special military operation into ukraine. it is significant because we heard from the russian president vladimir putin on saturday at, during his phone conversation with the finish president. and he said that the talks had been suspended as a result of ukraine, not really being serious about a negotiation process. as far as we understand that this is certainly a development because this entire time, despite what was happening on the ground in ukraine, these negotiations were ongoing as difficult as they were. but this is certainly the 1st time that they've actually officially suspended the negotiation process. it remains to be seen what will happen next, and certainly it is not a positive step in terms of trying to bring an end to this conflict. her daughter jabar in moscow for us there. thank you. russian soldier has pleaded guilty to killing an unarmed ukrainian civilian he made that play on wednesday as a keep

6:13 pm
after all the primary jurisdiction to do it justice rests with the national authorities. it is only one national authorities are unwilling or unable to noisily to the justice thought the door is diction or the i see, see, it kicks in as a matter of law. so i, c, c does not have the authority to use soc, national jurisdictions, if natural jurisdictions can do the job. and from time immemorial, international law had always recognized the right of belligerent store, warring parties to do prosecutions of oh, to war crimes or prosecutions. so it is for that reason that i said that it is not at all surprising. so given what you say then in terms of a war crimes, child, does it have any international credibility?
6:14 pm
it was, it depends on the credit ability of the national systems to do it. as a matter of, um, you know, what, what exists international law darr's recognize that authority of national estate to do it. and whether or not the a particular national em authority has the credibility to do justice according to the accepted standards in international law is a different question. and that is a matter that i am not in a position now to um, you know, 2nd guess the ability of ukraine to, to do a justice or indeed russia itself. because russia would also have the right to try and at all it's on soldiers. but also the ukrainian soldiers that i suspected of
6:15 pm
committing war crime. so both sides have that right in international law to conduct war crime trials of their own soldiers as well as a soldier of the enemy, m. m formation. and of course, ukraine is very keen to show that action is being taken and taken quickly, isn't it? well, that's what we, we see from a television of put a here senate is encouraging fat. m m o. the law, he seems to be a pain in both sides to the action that they can do that typically should be done. okay, actually a by a sushi. thank you for your insights here today. thank you. the european union is pushing forward with plans to abandon the use of russian energy. is proposing a $315000000000.00 package that includes more efficient use of fuels and

6:21 pm
opposition. and it comes as mexico welcomes a u. s. delegation to the capital of the t size are set to discuss mexico's insistence on every country in the region. being invited to next month's summit or my apollo is for the latest apartments in mexico city for us. but 1st that's across to him. how could, who's standing by in washington, dc and kimberly, what's really behind this move, hey? well, you have to look at this latest move and shift in policy by the bible administration with respect to venezuela. and essentially what this is, is an easing of sanctions. now this isn't a major shift policy really, this is being looked at as a good will gesture. what this is is essentially allowing an oil company chevron to begin negotiating an oil license with. the state government is not going to allow for any drilling or even exporting, so it's pretty minor. but what this is doing is it's coming on the heels of just
6:22 pm
prior. we saw an opening up our and easing of cuba policy that is going to allow for some easier travel restrictions. and also the increase in travel remittances, in other words, remittances, of, or the allowing of people to send money to family members in cuba from the united states. why is the, by the administration doing this? they're doing it for a couple of reasons. the 1st is to refocus the policy in the western hemisphere and to show a leadership position. but also this is really setting the table for the summit of the americas and that is taking place in los angeles next month. i. and this is really setting the table for that. and so this is also something that the by the administration is doing with respect to venezuela at the request of one guido, the opposition leader that the united states recognizes as the president of
6:23 pm
venezuela, along with a lot of his partners and allies. and this is really an effort to kind of restart the talks that would lead to resolving some of the political and humanitarian crises that exist in the nation. but there's another reason that this is going on with respect to venezuela as well. and that is because the united states, as you know, deeply involved in the concerns with the russian invasion in crane not too happy about venezuela's. a rare relationship with russia. so there's another reason that the united states wants to be talking right now with venezuela and being involved in terms of policy. and that is to really drive a wedge between that relationship between venezuela and russia. so there are a number of foreign policy goals that are really at the root of some of these changes that are taking place right now in terms of western hemisphere policy coming out of this white house. okay. at the warrant house for us to. kimberly,
6:24 pm
how could that money? well, apollo is life in mexico city now and manual. how is this playing out with a delegation the especially regards to cuba? well, this debate that we were expecting to see play out over the multilateral relationship, that the united states has with different regions of the western hemisphere debate that we were expecting to see play out of the some of, of the americas in jude is happening well ahead. of schedule, with mexico positioning itself right smack of the middle of this conversation. of course, this all begins with mexico, mexican president and manuel lopez over the board of stating that he would boycott the summit of the americas in june to take place in los angeles. if the united states did not invite representatives from cuba from various willa and from the can, i will others, other leaders from the region have since sort of signed up and supported that,
6:25 pm
that statement by the mexican president, we've heard from the president of guatemala, to a gemini, who's also said that he's not going to attend the summit if the united states is not invite, invite representatives from cuba, specifically nicaragua and venezuela. now this is something that could, that we could potentially in theory see a resolution to today. there was a delegation from the united states that was scheduled to visit mexico to speak with the president, specifically on that matter. we've heard from president lopez over the board just moments ago saying that that in person visit has been scheduled, has been cancelled. and instead it's going to be taking place over the phone. there is an irony here that i think is worth pointing out, which is that mexico's president, consistently sites his country's constitution. as a reason for why mexico a usually takes a neutral approach to things that mexico does not interfere with the foreign policy of other countries. but this seems to certainly be in an exception. we can point to the fact that mexico will soon be holding
6:26 pm
a 4th round of negotiations between venezuela government and the venezuelan opposition is. kimberly mentioned already the united states continues to back one way though, as the president of this will. and after years of the sort of stagnate, little to no progress being aid on the political crisis, there, there is a growing number of voices in latin america that support a political negotiation over the policy that the united states has been implementing, which is a strategy of pushing out nicholas by buddha, by way of sanctions and international isolation. now, if mexico is able to convince the united states to invite the presidents of venezuela of nick i were of cuba. it also raises legal questions, specifically because the united states has for many years now been accusing leaders like a lot of big of nicaragua and equal us by of venezuela of human rights violations and of other crimes. so it does from the position of mexico serve us interests
