7:03 pm
also been a pause, last half an hour or so of what's been described as a fire train being sent to the mall to help try and extinguish the blaze. now of course, russia has always said that it tries to avoid civilian casualties and heating civilian targets. in this rule, we are getting reports that one of the reported to miss isles that to hit that area was not a direct hit that may well of actually hit close to the shopping mall. but as i say, rush of it was denied that they do attack and target civilian infrastructure. as we saw yesterday here in the capital city cave, when they were missiles, strikes, again, they will submit an infrastructure. i'm hate and there was at least one civilian killed in those attacks. importantly, with respect to the location of this city, it is a big industrial city that sits on the dani per river. it's around 200 kilometers approximately, from the southern front line and
7:04 pm
a similar kind of distance to the east in frontline as well. and as i say, the ukrainian government saying that there is no weaponry, no kind of military institutions or infrastructure strategic infrastructure near that mold. but yesterday, the bridge that stay was that river was hit by a russian strike and that killed according to the ukrainian government, one civilian an injured, another 5 people. yes, a terrible, seemingly a terrible strike. this hit me small and great fears about the numbers of people that could well according to the ultimate linux case. numbers could well have been killed or injured. all right, charles, he'll keep across a story for us for the time being. thank you so much for all stratford reporting from keys. let's keep this conversation going with samuel romani, who's a geopolitical security analyst and associate fellow at the royal united services institute. he's joining us from oxford in the u. k. so i'm to remind welcome back to al jazeera charles was just saying,
7:05 pm
this particular shopping mall is about 200 kilometers away from the southern and eastern front lines. why do you think the shopping mall would be hidden and why? now? for russia is launching a series of nationwide tags made ukrainian cities was really intensified over the past 48 hours. we see attorney here in northern ukraine be targeted german joke as intentionally. right. i've also seen our cars, the, another city that was largely untouched by the warrants enjoy crane being hit. and then of course the tax i'm here and on the arm transfer facilities training facility guarantee. ready believe so, rush just trying to show that even though it's focusing on military efforts, and don bass is still a nationwide ambition. so with this uptake in recent russian strikes, what is the, what is the message that's being sent out and to whom? what message will you send to several parties? first of all, as being sent to foreign leaders, strategy shall no party be quite as safe. so visiting keyboard, disney you rein,
7:06 pm
it is a risky never 2nd of all. busy it say 8 if hiring a warning shot at the ukrainian military trying to scatter their forces to defend other parts of the country. as the russians on the cost of conquering bohannon's can now want to push forgiven odessa, they want to win circle the winning forces and on bass and divide them elsewhere. and thirdly, i think is also a message is being sent to the ab. but people in the west who are sending arms jew grant rushes in this for the long haul and could be on the e in on this war for many years. and how are the ukrainians firing and all this on the ground and militarily? well on this particular attack is obviously devastating. re reading civilians with the 1000 civilians be located in the mall. it's going to be a lot higher casualty than some of the other tax we've seen and journey heath and keith over the last 48 hours, militarily, taking a look at the broader perspective. be craniums are suffering a bit of a set back and low hands because of the lots of burden yeske. but they also have the knowledge that they have a city to buy a weapon that should be able to help them,
7:07 pm
potentially turn the tide. his optimism in ukraine about a counter offensive incurs on ac. he off at the end of august. so and he was talking to dave, if you rank at the appropriate weapons, they could have this war done by the end of the year. so there is some optimism, new grain about the. busy j situation, but obviously the losses, the 1000000 lives across the country are devastating free craniums. yeah. the shore . okay, thank you so much samuel ronnie for joining us from oxford. thank you. so the strikes come just as the leaders of the world's wealthy countries are meeting in germany for the g 7 summit and just ahead of nato summit that's had to kick off on tuesday or the plot to get her to james bases in bavaria. he's covering the g 7 meeting. so james, we were just talking about the strikes that took place on a ukrainian shopping mall. i wonder if there's been any reaction from a g 7 leaders where you are and just tell us how you assess what's happened on day 2. if not so much. no reaction from any of the g. 7 leaders. we were listening very
7:08 pm
closely in the last couple of minutes when shorts, the chancellor of germany and the host of this meeting was giving a brief statement. he didn't also refer to the latest attacks. he did talk about presence and then ski and the support that giving to president sky. he said the president savanski who spoke to them by the video link. interestingly, that video link message was not released in the media as has been done in the past . it was kept secret private, but he said that he deemed the situation as urgent. more support was needed and mister sharp said that they will certainly continue to help ukraine landscape, by other reports not from chunks. shots said that he wants this more to be concluded by winter. that is his hope. and he clearly asked the g 7 for more support. we understand that some of those things he's going to get we understand that slightly of the us are going to provide new missile defense systems, but medium range and long range in the near future. some of the other things, well,
7:09 pm
they might be on the way. one of the things is trying to have a cap on oil prices around the world now must g 7 countries have stopped importing russian oil. but the idea was to have a capital, the price of russian oil for other parts of the world economy. and that would hate very much russia in his pocket. if that was to happen, it's a complicated thing to do. it's very technical. they're trying to a mechanism. so for now that is an aspiration rather than somebody that's in place . all right, and there was a significant announcement earlier on by nature saying that there boosting the rapid respond force from 40002300000. i mean, that's pretty dramatic. james was behind that decision. yeah, it is important. i mean, it's not necessarily a huge new number of nato troops that nato troops that already existed, but they're on a different footing. now. the idea is that they could deploy very, very quickly. and i think what's important is the, the east and flank of nato,
7:10 pm
those countries that border russia, which already had nato forces there in addition to the national armies, they are now going to be put, it seems in a more permanent switching, that's going to be pre positioned aircraft, pre positioned equipment. those forces are going to, i think, be more acquainted with the locality and keep coming back to the same places already. you have certain nature countries which are the lead nation in east each of those countries in the east, in the baltics and in poland and other important development with regard to nato, that nato summit is to, to start pretty soon. the g 7 leaders will fly from here to madrid, including japan. japan is not in nato, but it is a guest, so they will be going and joining the other leaders. but before that happens, that's going to be a mini son summit to try and deal with the concerns and turkey, which is blocking sweden and finland from becoming new nato members. a last ditch 11th our attempt. and interestingly, in the last few moments,
7:11 pm
the nato secretary general, yet insulted bug, was speaking with this, this soon as prime minister magdalena anderson. and it was interesting what the sexy general said. he said that sweden did already started new criminal investigations to please turkey. that's into the p k. k, which she described as a terrorist organization. he said they were already examining extradition requests from turkey. he said that nato, as a whole, would look at mom's exports because certainly there are things that turkey wants from some other nato members, and he says he's gonna introduce that nato summit, a new session on the counter terrorism. now i think that's supposed to please turkey because they described the p k. k. as i said, as a terrorist organization, or the swedish, or the swedish prime minister said when she spoke to reporters literally a few moments ago, she had every hope that this could be concluded soon. ideally before the summit on the summit happens in just
7:12 pm

7:14 pm
in the amount of thunderstorms, big downpours, which will be a problem enhancing the flooding. cat, official airline of the journey on counting the cost central banks take decisive action and bring in aggressive rate hikes to try and bring sore and consumer prices under control. but what more can be done? last, we take a look at what's in store for the aviation industry following the global pandemic. counting the cost on al jazeera, there is no channel that covers world views like we do. the scale of this camp is like nothing you've ever seen. what we want to know, how do these things are people we revisit, please stay, even when they're no international headline. how does your really invest in that? and that's a privilege. as a journalist, ah,

if you, if he has been saying that any tension between it and the left has provided opportunity for the for the new government to basically launch attacks against that and to take more territory or to take over more territory of a push or so that could be another reason as well. but whatever the reason is, it looks like this is now causing more attention and even with no talks inside because there, there was supposed to be some kind of talk since 2020 to the market. the border that hasn't happened, it looked like would be sentient. turning militarily, it doesn't look like they will be in the magic tough between the 2 sides to sort out the issue of the border. at least 26 people have been killed in an attack by an armed group in south west come a rune that happened in the acquire district where rights group say violence has increased. local sources, say the attack was linked to an ethnic dispute. overland. that's been aggravated by separate fist fighters. they want greater representation for english speaking
