7:08 pm
gone through those big decisions at asha butler standing by in paris with more on the defense ministers meeting. but 1st, let's go to sir teresa bo in key for more on the situation in ukraine or teresa. let's start with the b i. e a's visit. they're expected to travel to this operation, nuclear power plants. they've been meeting with the ukranian president. do we know what's come out of that and what sort of timeline are we looking at? as far as their visit to is operation? while the 14 member delegation is already here in key, it's being led by the director of the a file. we don't see who earlier today met with president moly me to fill in sky. there's been not have. 1 concerns about how they're going to be traveling all the way to support each. it's a long drive. it's about an 8 hour drive. and there is, there's been some accusations from the ukrainian government saying that shelling
7:09 pm
was ongoing around the area where the teams should be able to make it all the way to stop. what do you say? the reason why you bring in government is saying that this is trying to save that to be a rush. i was trying to manipulate that trip and have them go all the way from crimea . well, in that meeting with president lensky, he assured them that he was going to try to guarantee all the safety possible during that drive. he also said that he was not going forward. that to be a, he team would be able to convince russia to withdraw from the area to the militarize, the area in order to guarantee the safety of everyone. you know, there's been lots of concern about what's happening in that plan. the russian ministry of defense has been accusing ukrainian forces of shelling the area. some of those shells have come very, very close to where the nuclear fuel is located and even the radioactive waste on the other side of korean government is saying that it is the russians were doing the attacks from the plant that was taking over by russia back in march and from
7:10 pm
there they've been launching several attacks. so there's lots of expectation about this meeting about what be be able to achieve. but overall, the most important thing is to verify that a re level of damage that has happened to the plant to feed that the queen and technicians that are working there are doing okay that they're not working under duress, which is what the korean government is saying. because they're being closely monitored by russian soldiers and also that all the faith safety systems are in place. and teresa bring us up to speed with the fighting now on the ground. while the fighting here in ukraine has moved towards the southern and eastern part of the country, but all lies are right now on the southern part of the country where ukraine seems to have gone on the offensive. instead of defending the cities, they're starting to attack harry as all around. they had a phone region, and this is important because, you know, when this invasion began,
7:11 pm
around 6 months ago, the troops came in from crimea and started advancing to take down the southern part of the country. but they were stopped in the call life and they were not able to make it all the way toward the outlets that crucial 50, unimportant city in this country. they were pushed back all the way to the phone where they are currently located. and that's where president phil and he says he has launched on offensive trying to liberate the area. we have also heard some reports, for example, that some groups try to rebel against police forces that are controlled by russia, and that one person was killed. we could not independently confirmed this, but you know, the big question is whether this is something that will succeed. whether you can have the manpower has a weapon that will be able to push russia out from that area. also, regarding the fighting is towards the eastern part of the country, the city of kind of kick. it's located only 30 kilometers away from the border with russia. there's been, you know, they've been trying to take over russia has been trying to take over that town for
7:12 pm
over 6 months now. they have not succeeded and there's fresh shelling on this day. at least 5 people lost their lives. so, you know, it's a dramatic situation on the ground, and especially in those territories where the government has mandated to an evacuation from civilians around that area, trying to save lives. millions have been displaced and thousands of others have died. thank you very much for that. traceable in cave lets not bringing natasha about 9 pairs for more on the defense ministers meeting. so tell us about what the, what they've agreed as far as support for ukraine. additional support for ukraine or these foreign policy chief, or usurper burrell, says that you are defense ministers at the end of this to day meeting in prague have agreed to set up a training missions for ukrainian forces. now what that means is that ukrainian

7:26 pm
the surface. the army says it was overloaded and collided with the navy vessel while trying to get away. survivors say otherwise is all in the army vessel, hit the front of our boat, which is taught to come in. and at 1st we didn't realize the boat sinking. i saw a sailor twice telling them to hit the front of our boat. the captain of the submarine report had signs of damage at the front of the boat, but says his team didn't have the capabilities to retrieve the vessel which is partly buried under silt on the sea bed, mac above me, or they were killed in cold blood. we want a transparent investigation and if they were serious about the truth, they would bring the boat up. relatives of the more than 30 people missing or not only asking for justice. what would they kill my daughter? at least give me her bones. this is all i want now, so i can pray at her grave. the search team says it found some bodies near and
7:27 pm
inside the shipwreck, but they were badly decayed. the tragedy in april wasn't the 1st for 11 on september, 2020 a migrant boat drifted at sea for days without food or water. before it was found, 4 people died including a child. then like now families of the victims blamed the authorities saying they haven't even been told if any of the remains were recovered. i know these are my children. i one thing, it's not up to the authorities. what happens? these are my children not days, but the search team has ended its mission, providing no closure to grieving families. it's another al jazeera tripoli, northern lebanon. her study is wanting that melting from the greenland ice sheet will eventually raise global sea levels. whiteley's 27 centimeters. that's even if fossil fuels are no longer burned, scientists say it's shrinking because of climate change and nothing can be done to prevent it. it's one of 2 massive ice sheets that are slowly disappearing because

7:29 pm
as the idea of great power competition makes everything into a 0 sum equation. china has tremendous issues right now. not the least of which is that they've announced as of today when the party congress will occur in october, which will become the primary focus of what happens with in china for the next couple of months. c, u. s. has made that accusation accusation at the same time, china regularly accuses the united states of things and we don't accept that as gospel either. my point is simply that if every thing in the world happens as if it were soley driven by great power competition, that leaves out a lot of possible explanations. one person has been killed in protests across haiti . hundreds took to the streets of the capital port of french and other cities, demanding the resignation of prime minister. i had already. it's his 2nd wave of
