10:03 pm
slow losses that his city is facing. now, the ukrainian government only controls 20 percent of that city, 60 percent in russian hands. and the rest of it, a no man's land, certainly indicative of how the pace of the russian advance has been and hasn't just been there. we've seen in care sun for the last 2 days. that city has been completely cut off in terms of communication. there's been no ukrainian or mobile or internet service there for 2 days elsewhere in the den that's region across the board. we've heard reports just in the last few hours of loud explosions being heard in cities in the genetic region and sustained artillery fire going on since this afternoon. that began in spurts last night in nikolai, of loud explosions being heard in the last hour artillery showing very well. so certainly across the board in the east renewed attacks by the russians. so what exactly is the system that the americans have sent to ukraine? lea, a hi mas multiple launch rocket system, or m l r s. consumer tenuously fired multiple precision guided missiles. it's 80 kilometer
10:04 pm
range is twice that of the m triple 7. how it says ready provided to, to ukrainian forces a longer range version of the missile, which can reached targets 300 kilometers away, isn't being supplied to the ukrainians. us when she already has highmark units in europe, nature, allies, poland, and romania also have them. oh, what as 1st one, it can be how kit joins us live now. kimberly why did biden changer stance regarding sending these kinds of weapons to ukraine? well, very simply, there was concern that russia was making gains that the united states and as partners and allies were not comfortable with. so as a result, in an order to, in the words of us, president of the statement released just a few hours ago. this latest packages to designed to repel those russian advances to you as president is stephen saying we will continue to lead the world
10:05 pm
of providing historic assistance to support ukraine's fight for freedom. so what the united states is doing is releasing a very small number of medium range rockets that in the words of the united states will allow for ukraine to precisely hit targets in the battlefield, eastern dom bass region. what this will do is it will allow the ukrainian military to hit precisely russian artillery sites, also russian positions and to do so with an intensity that it has not been able to do previously. now, we should point out that this is the 11th military package that the united states has provided ukraine, but is the 1st time that the united states has been able to release military support from that 40000000000 dollar package that was recently approved by the us congress. and this is the u. s. concerned that these weapons could be used to, to hit russian territory. it certainly is
10:06 pm
a concern that was brought up repeatedly by reporters in a background briefing call that was held between senior administration officials and white house correspondent. now what that the officials are telling reporters is that there is obviously the concern that has been brought up of potential for direct confrontation. in fact, this is something that the russian side has accused ukraine of and the united states, perhaps a provoking but what we can tell you is that the united states says that it has instructed ukraine and been very specific in terms of how this weaponry should be. used that it should only be used inside ukraine's borders. that it has said repeatedly that this is what is designed for being used for. and this is not in any way to prolong the war, but just the opposite is the belief that with this ramping up of these capabilities,
10:07 pm
that this will allow for a potential cessation ultimately of violence. but of course, what we know from all of this is this is relying on self restraint on the part of the ukrainians. and we know in times of conflict that can often be in short supply . kimberly, how can thank you very much indeed. when the news conference alongside the nato, she general your sector state entity, blink, and said, he trusts ukraine not to use the new rockets against targets on russian soil with regard to weapon systems being provided. the ukrainians have given us assurances that they will not use the systems against targets on russian territory. there is a strong trust bond between ukraine in the united states, as well as with our allies and partners. germany is also sending more heavy weapons to ukraine. chancellor shots says the shipment includes arm and artillery and the iris t anti aircraft system. you're off here and. and then under that i hear a lot out of other countries and what is being discussed. and i will see clearly
