6 months since the beginning of the russian invasion, just killed thousands of people who displaced millions. now much lower, your count will not only care about our land, only. we will fight for it until began mine, which we have been holding strong for 6 months. it's tough, but we have quenched our 1st time and we are fighting for our destiny. every new day is a reason not to give out. after such a long journey, we do have the right not to go onto the piano. what is the end of the wolf for us? and we used to say peace. now we say victory. what we will not seek an understanding of the terrorists, but in more times about is live for us in kill. so just how muted all the celebrations today. hey, well we're here in the center of keith near my dana independent square, where you can see right behind me, all the flags that you can see to where it's my right side aren't those who have been killed in this war, civilians that have been killed in this war and there's
11:05 am
a message there, there that says those who have been killed by vladimir voting on the other side. there's a whole display of russian tanks that have been destroyed, destroyed during the war. they have been put on, displayed here as an act of defiance that the suddenly all the alarms her on in ukraine right now. mostly because of the possibility of any type of strikes here in this country. all major cities are on the alert. in fact, the air raid sirens, we're just on, we're here. some people have been coming here. the situation is quite calm right now. but president zalinski has already warned that russia could carry out some vicious attacks on this day. he also said that ukraine will be ready to respond then, and he also gave an address earlier this morning just where we are, where he said that you queen, west, has reborn since rushes in be shown that it has unified the country so that this is a very, very symbolic day because it also marks 6 months since this war began. and when you
11:06 am
talk to people on the street, many of them here tell you that they want to continue fighting that they want to continue defending their country when you talk to ukrainians. they say that they want to be closer to europe, to freedom, to freedom of speech, among other things and further away from authoritarian rules that they see and moscow. so it's 31 years since their independence from the soviet union. but people here tell you that they're still fighting for independence because they're defending their land. they're defending their territory and they're defending their homes. and theresa, there's been warnings about possible russian attacks on the stale. what is the military situation look like so far? well i just said we were right here in the fend her off key when the air raid sirens are wrong. so everyone is on the alert. however, people continue walking around, they didn't run to a shelter. that's something that the government has warned them off. thing that people had gotten relaxed in this past month. the last try can keep, for example,
11:07 am
happened back in june. so many, you know, have gotten used to a certain tranquillity here on the capital city. but that's what the government is asking people to do to take air raid sirens very, very seriously. mostly because they're thing warning, not only by president lensky by interior, international intelligence agencies, among other things that there could be tried from major city here in the ukraine. so the war is not happening right now. here in the keys, we're around the capital, it has moved towards a sovereign eastern part of the country. fighting is still ongoing. there we've heard of different incident happening. but the contact line, the front line has not moved much in the past few weeks. most of the ukrainians here tell you that probably they know that this war is going to be a long one. they're getting ready for winter, both forced to say that they're going to use winter to their advantage. and of course there's the humanitarian side of all this construct. the people that have
11:08 am
died, the civilians that have died, the civilians that have been injured. so most definitely this is a special independence day for most ukrainian here. and as i said before, you know, everyone here knows that things could rapidly change here in the capital city and across the country. well, i will leave it there. thanks so much theresa bo or the well, in the rosy as the ukraine operations manager for the international red cross, she says the humanitarian situation is likely to get worse over the next 6 months. at the moment, we are still very much in the emergency phase. although we have a much better idea of what are the needs at the moment. so far we have provided assistance with basic items. basic needs to 5000000 people, but the needs are increasing. the winter is coming and this is our main focus
11:09 am
at the moment we are preparing for the winter. i zation the needs are, are mainly related to housing, but also for people to just to, to know where they're going to send their children to school. so this, the, the needs are very broad and the people are either looking for a place to be hosted or reach out to family members outside of ukraine. but within ukraine we still have 6600000 of people that have been displaced by the conflict. and more or less the same amount of people that have fled the country that are in the neighboring countries. now the un human rights office says it's concerned about report russian bank sets

11:12 am
its insistence that international inspectors closed the investigation of its nuclear program. essentially that iran was to explain the presence of traces of uranium at 3 undeclared sites. now the reason the united states is hopeful that iran may have dropped this demand is that this would allow for the revival of the 2015 agreement, one, the former president, donald trump, abandoned in 2018 and current president joe biden is seeking to revive. now what we can tell you is that al jazeera has confirmed that iran has a very different view. in fact, an advisor to the iranian negotiating team tells al jazeera that the claims being made in u. s. media reports are false, still the washington side through the us state department is saying that even if these hurdles are overcome gaps remain and so finalizing this deal could take
11:13 am

11:16 am
just going to have to read. there's no recognition about what we're ready facing. the street. oh, now 20. 1. a . welcome back here watching al jazeera time to recap, those headlines according thailand is suspended prime minister prior channel child, while the review of his term limits is being completed prior took power in a coup in 2014 critic say he's reached the maximum limits of 8 years in office, iran says israel is trying to sabotage progress in reviving the 2015 nuclear deal. the head of iran's nuclear energy organisation says israel is stage days of psychological warfare. this follows us media reports to her on has dropped some
11:17 am
major demands from the deal. ukrainians are holding new to celebrations, to mark 31 years of independence from soviet rule. mass gatherings have been banned in the capital key if curfews imposed in some cities. our families in poland, bracing for a tough winter. the country is facing wide spread coal shortages after russian imports of fuel were banned. unlike the rest of europe, poland relies on coal rather than gas for power and heating and re simmons travel took out a visa to see how people are preparing for the cold months. poland prides itself on its potential for being totally independent of russia for its energy needs. but there's a problem. it's a shortage of coal, not gas, like the rest of europe, rough, our rules, coal seller, is normally stocked up for winter by now. but he can't find any cold to buy,
11:18 am
and if he could, he'd pay almost 4 times what he used to use them and you couldn't again, i'm not a minor orange urologist, but the coal is right here beneath our feet. and i've been trying to buy it for 3 months with 0 results, an average of he's right. this region is rich with coal, but polish production is limited. and the government has banned imported coal from russia, even though it's cheaper and more suitable for domestic use. we didn't invest in nuclear power yet or we cannot rely on natural gas. so all we have is gold when it comes to the heating sector, the situation is even worse because we were heavily dependent on russian. ready co, poland burns, a lot of coal, 87 percent of the total for households across the european union. coal mines surrounded by cues of trucks can't meet the demand. and if people knew the level of profiteering going on, they be even more alarmed. there's a reason that truck drove us from all over poland or spending days on end and cues
11:19 am
like these. it's because the loads may be small, but the profits of big drivers are known to make at least a 100 percent profit from a coal yard dealer who will then raise the price by at least another 100 percent. this driver admits the 2nd old will suffer for the news or be tagged. what the government should do is get pension as a special allowance on coal delivered to their door. and it's sick. i don't want to profit from human misery, but that's how it is. the government says an annual coal allowance of around $630.00 a year will help a ministers say companies are importing coal ahead of the coming winter. polish companies are now importing call from other countries from colombia, indonesia, south africa, and replacing with that does the quantities of called and we're coming from ocean. it's a bit of a different logistics, so it creates challenges. but right across poland, people like this homeowner feel the government isn't doing enough. andrew simmons,

civil society space that he was whole local elections. that perhaps the board was brought a macro, economic stability that might start to trickle down. but of course, that hasn't entirely happened. some of it has been a lack of political will. other things have been just global shocks, but this is really contributed to this overall feeling of delusional. and, and this is, this is what you could potentially see the emperor late and not fair as well as it has had previous connections. now on thursday or hunger, refugees will mark the 5th anniversary of the exodus from me and my hundreds of thousands of people from the countries. muslim minority fled a violent military crack down 2017. now, nearly a 1000000 wrangler live in one of the world's biggest refugee camps and cox's bizarre freedom of movement is limited. they kept on the increasingly harsh conditions. bangladesh is pushing for their re pat creation. but the un human
