7:03 pm
a life sentence, something the wife of this victim had requested during the trial, either a life sentence or that this russian soldier be exchanged in a prisoner swap for ukrainian captured ukrainian soldiers in russian custody. now what we are likely to see is many more such cases as this conflict continues. we've got 2 pilots, possibly being seen in court in coming days. that's the next case. on the horizon and ukrainian prosecutors are investigating more and more cases of what they're calling a legend, war crimes on a near daily basis. so this is unlikely to be the last time that we see some kind of a court case. quickly adjourned, with regards to russian soldiers being accused of war crimes. in this, in this war, meanwhile, in the east battle has been raging. the town of sorted out. i said vague, managed to get in doing a pause in fighting for days. the town of solid off has been kicked by russian
7:04 pm
artillery. the ukrainians still hold it where one of the few to gain access to this embattled town. we entered on foot without a military escort. the streets are empty. a crater left behind in the middle of the town. another in front of a residential building. others destroyed. rather look at leaking the cover slip when we just came out. we were in a flood, but at night we're sleeping in the basement. i'm here because my daughter is ill. i leave i am. where am i to go? they take us to their basement and where we find others sheltering from the shelling you. wow, look devil at night at 1 o'clock in the morning there may be shelling or the whole evening or like a few days before throughout the morning. or there was such a big bomb, there was mud everywhere. and lots of fire. despite the war,
7:05 pm
the destruction and the constant bombardment. some here still support russia. we've blurred this man's face for his own protection. joke got you looked young girl. why are you wearing helmet with her? because you can't. guy augusta writes, you read to you for waterloo. read garcia, read your russia will be here to victory. don bass was always russian. the artillery battle begins again. no one is now going into their basement. it's usually a good indication of the fact that something may be coming back in you. what happens is that you cranes the fire, the roughly with one of you can return 5. this honey crane is a fight. a will think you're going in the basement. that fat sign possibly
7:06 pm
get out of it. solider is in a strategic location. if russian forces managed to take it, it enables them to strike anything within sight. the ukrainian forces are desperately trying to stop them. i said, bake al jazeera saw that us, while the conflict in ukraine dominated day one of the world economic forum in davis, the world's richest and most powerful individuals were addressed via video link, or ukraine's president for the merits. lensky appealed for billions, more in financial help. to me, mom begged me out of duly shenice issue. you green needs funding, at least $5000000000.00 us dollars per month. this is why we established a fund for rebuilding greenville and called united 24 to call upon everyone to join this look, i'm on the or diplomatic editor james base has more from that us the audience here. and that was a top media of professionals, top business professionals, top political figures from all around the world,
7:07 pm
all listening to yet another call from president lensky because he didn't come here . he is still commanding war efforts back in ukraine and keith. but he was beamed in and i think a pretty similar refrain for what we've heard in the past. let's discuss this further with john chipman. he is the chief executive of the international institute for strategic studies. john valencia again. i need more. i need more. is he going to get moral? after all, the billions that have been given in the weapons in the given it can begin to start dry up. i think he delivered 2 messages. first, that ukraine is still fighting the will to beat the russians back, is there, and as a consequence, heavy weapon should continue to flow. certainly, nate, who is now beginning to provide nato standard weapons, which means that might be a little bit of a delay between the delivery of the weapons, the training of the ukrainians on them, and then their ability to deploy them in battle. and of course, the 2nd appeal,
7:08 pm
he made it for financial support, not just immediate financial support, but reminding people that whenever this war and however the war and to be an enormous reconstruction cost of ukraine and reminding people that there should be an appeal for that. as well and support plan for those reconstruction, for many observers believe it could now become a war of attrition going on for some considerable time. is there a problem there for ukraine that the momentum begins to go? the media move on to other matters, the public move on to other matters. eventually, political leaders move on to other matters. this in enormous european war and putting, having failed in his initial objective grabbing keep in 3 days and installing a puppet regime. there has now moved almost into a, a war of an i lation where civilians are the principal targets. many of the military efforts that our television screens in europe in north america every day. i don't think they'll be exhaustion on behalf of all of the west. what is clear is
7:09 pm
that there is an ethical reason to help ukraine wind quickly, because if it does indeed, continue in this fashion for months and months, they'll be millions of people who will have lost their lives and their livelihood. also speaking of the world economic forum, the mayor of a cutter called on journalists, lives to be respected, no matter where they come from and to see what journeys sure in our clay was fatally shot buys where the forces on may, the 11th sheila, i christine palestine, in american journalist was killed 2 weeks ago in palestine and then robbed of a dignified burial. she was covering the suffering of the palestinian people for decades, and our hearts are broken. her death was just as horrific as the 7 journalists killed in ukraine. since march of this year and 18 other journalists killed in
7:10 pm
palestine since 2000. that comment came as the palestinian foreign ministry announced. it is formerly asked the international criminal court to investigate the killing of sharing a clay. israel's military prosecutor has called on the army to conduct an in depth investigation. neither abraham has more from ramallah and occupied westbank. the posted in foreign ministry has said that it's referred the file of city in black, las casing killing to the international criminal court. we know that in 2021, the prosecutor of the i c. c has said that it's opening an investigation into potential war crimes in the palestinian territory. and palestinians say that the killing of city in our broccoli is a war crime indeed. and that has pushed that file and referred it to the i c. c. in addition to dozens of other fires that have been filed over the past a year or so, including extra judicial killing. the illegal is really settlement and
7:11 pm
a palestinians hope and say that the international criminal court could be the only way to get justice for serene and other is really crimes. now these really military prosecutor has said that it is ready i. we should be conducting an investigation urging one this. does it mean that an investigation would be open or that it has already been opened? this only means that the circles within the israeli army are talking about the potential of opening an investigation from our experience. it's been very rare that is really military opens investigations into killings of palestinians and in their faces. it does, it almost never leads to an indictment. and when it does lead to an indictment, the light at the sentence is usually light and palestinians say it's this proportionate to the crime. that's why they're hoping to get justice from the international criminal court. china has warned the u. s. president not to underestimate beijing's resolve on taiwan, so biden studied,
7:12 pm
intervene militarily to defend the art and from any invasion. he spoke in turnkey on an asia trip. he hopes of firm relations with the allies from their mcbride reports. president joe biden came to japan to bolster one of the u. s. is most important alliances in the asia pacific at a time of multiple challenges across the region. but he may have worsened one of those regional flash points with less than tactful answers at the main use conference. as he's done in the past. it came in response to a question about whether the us would respond militarily to a chinese invasion, to take the island of taiwan. that bay ging regards as a break away territory. are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan if it comes to that? yes, you are a 2nd member, we may the u. s. dance on taiwan has been far more ambiguous in the past. and the
7:13 pm
white house immediately had to release a statement, trying to clarify the u. s. position. but what sounded like a threat to china brought this response. hello, monkey, crucial the taiwan issue of purely china, the internal affair, which won't stand for any foreign interference issues bearing on china's co interests, including the serenity and territorial integrity that is normal for compromise or concession. no one should underestimate the chinese people's firm resolution. this is turned into something of a distraction in what is meant to be a strong show of unity against russian aggression. and also against increasing military threats from china. as well as increased missile testing from north korea . as the only nation to have been subjected to an atomic attack, japan is deeply concerned by north korea's development of its nuclear arsenal. but it's also troubled by the increasing assertiveness of china with ongoing territorial disputes in the east china sea. yardi title touched it as
7:14 pm
a major power. china has significant responsibilities, also in the economic field to live up to that responsibility. i think it is important for japan to work with united states to encourage china to fulfill its responsibilities in accordance with international rules. i think such attitudes are important. biden has also used the trip to launch the indo pacific economic framework. an initiative aimed at safeguarding and developing production of critical commodities like advanced semiconductors and setting universal standards for labor and environmental protection. it's very, very clear that from american perspective, china is now the biggest competitor on all fronts. and as a result of that, what america is doing now is building alliances across the world. this visit will culminate in a summit meeting of the leaders of the so called quad security alliance, led by the u. s. and seen as a further attempt to constrain china militarily in the region. rob mcbride,
