6:01 pm
ah, i'm here to mohammed walking to the program, ukraine's eastern city of mario poll, sing fierce fighting between ukrainian and russian forces. many residents have been trapped there since the invasion started. the 1st humanitarian corridors are now allowing some people to evacuate, but the widespread destruction in mario pole is raising concerns for many that they may not be able to return rashi, state television records, the destruction in the city of morrow. you poll russia some military has managed, should take parts of the besieged city. following heavy bombardment, the price of its progress, burned out buildings and traumatized residence.
6:02 pm
a nearby steel plant was also hit. russia claims it is liberating ukrainians from nazi rule. ukraine's president followed mister lensky, who, his jewish condemned, the brutal attack. look at me mighty open o v deal this story, the blockade of mar you, paul, will go down in history as a war. crime to do this, to a peaceful city is terrorism. that will be remembered in centuries to come each in a state and the more ukrainians tell the world about it. the more support we will get in with the more russia uses terror against ukraine. the more it will suffer, the consequences greatly deem he is shanowsky must provide lemay as stands residence, film, the destruction rode by russian forces. the battle for this city continues. experts predict the invaders will get bogged down by a dog at ukrainian defense and that attacks on civilian targets will continue with
6:03 pm
the wilkins are little less. a fighting ranges on moscow is deploying new weapons, saying it has again used hypersonic missiles for a 2nd day. russia says, is king jell rocket the scene here in russian military footage, travel up to 2000 kilometers and several times the speed of sound, making them difficult to track and intercept the missiles, reportedly hit a ukrainian fuel depot in constantinople, go. russia said another miss al strike had a facility in of route where it claimed where it claims foreign fighters and ukrainian special forces were based. well, the w sick colony joins us live now from the veins in west, in ukraine. so what message is russia trying to send by using these types of missiles, nick? well, this seems, may need to be a gesture towards the us to show the new,
6:04 pm
with the u. s. administration. what kinds of new weapons russia still has at its disposal? we've seen russia in recent days using pretty old weapon systems pretty or artillery other things that have been pretty indiscriminate in terms of damaging civilian targets. this is some of the new stuff that the kremlin has, and this is obviously trying to show once again the kremlin is willing to escalate, is willing to put ever more sophisticate, ever more devastating weapon on the table in terms the outcomes. while the russians have been hitting these kinds of ukrainian targets in recent days without these hypersonic missiles. but it certainly is another sign that moscow just isn't going to back down and isn't going to respond to western sanctions and dial down the tensions here in ukraine at least for now. these rockets are said to have a range of 2000 kilometers. is there a reason for concern that that, that they could potentially reach that is in poland or germany? but obviously these signs from the kremlin are very worrying this rhetoric you've
6:05 pm
hearing out of moscow is getting more aggressive see me by the day. in recent weeks, we also had the russians doing very little to kind of her veiled threats of use of nuclear weapons of maybe tactical nuclear weapon, smaller nuclear weapons than the conventional nuclear weapons which we saw being feared in the cold war. but basically, no sign of de escalation from russia, no sign that they are open to any real kind of dialogue. and there have been other russian weapons use in recent weeks that can travel similar distance as the caliber cruise missile. it also has a range about 2000 kilometers and it's important to run that lots. these missiles also based in rushes, cleaning grad region that is surrounded by nature, members by poland, california. so these missiles already very close to nature capitals and are definitely within range of berlin. other european capitals, already ukraine's president is once again appealing for direct talks with vladimir putin. is there any sign of that happening? what we've seen, volume is lensky ukraine semiconductor president. time and time again,
6:06 pm
asking for these talk, saying that this is basically the only way that any kind of progress is going to be reached. because russia, he says, is a country where all the students are taken by the man at the top by that they're putin. and they're all kind of negotiations on a lower level. even ministerial level isn't really going achieve anything. for now . we've not seen any willingness from russia to make this happen. are basically screaming sauce is implying that ukraine is a western client state. the bessie talking to ukraine has little a purpose to it. the bessie, this is something that needs to be decided between the us and russia, and the, the ukrainians could basically only come to the table if they agreed, some kind of capitulation if they are willing to do everything that russia wants to them, bases give up its army, to give up the plans to join nato or other western alliances, and is willing to recognize russian control of an ex crimea and recognize those self proclaimed republics. least that basically is pretty much on think will right now it's cancer scenario, which volume events you'll be able to ask ukrainians after the devastation and the deaths the last few weeks to accept those russian terms as they are now. so it's pretty difficult see what is going by thinks about the optics. definitely ukrainian
6:07 pm
side has to be seen to be open to dialogue, to guarantee to sure that western support doesn't want to be open to accusations that ukraine is fighting this. if there is a real chance for peace, but right now it's kind of difficult see where those talks would go and what even they would talk about. now interesting. see the pictures behind you there are people out in about this afternoon currently in the event that bring us up to speed on the wider humanitarian situation, taking place there in ukraine will. that's extraordinary thing. if you see these pictures, these scenes here leave, you could be forgiven for thinking that this is a country at peace, but this is a city that is filled to the brim with refugees. these are internally displaced people. we've certain never seen the city as busy as this, and if you look at the cars, most of them have number plates from cities. further east from kia, from heard you from odessa some, even from mary paul we heard from the u. n. today that estimated quarter of ukraine's population 10000000 people have left their homes in with the recent weeks at the beginning of the war. in late february,
6:08 pm
most of those are internally disposed. they have left the country. they've moved further west to place like to be closer to their nature and you borders. loss people here trying to make up their minds whether they'll be able to stay at stay as families of cement between ages of 1860 are not allowed to leave the country. that is bound right now. they're not being called up to fight right now, but they can't leave. so lots people try to keep family life going. or before thinking about maybe sending their wives and their children and their parents abroad to safety and poland, other places for those. like connelly in the village. thank you so much, nick. how right from the start of this war? civilians have been paying the highest price. many families unable to flee their homes, have found themselves caught in the crossfire. some of those suffering the most are children. when hospital in cave is trying to treat young survivors, despite the challenges for low to me, it is lucky to be alive, is the car he was travelling in was hit by gun fired. 2 days after russia invaded
6:09 pm
ukraine, his father and his 6 year old cousin were killed. although the 13 year old survived, he's been left with serious injuries longer hulu here face was hurt. his jaw and his nose were broken. his arm was hit, his leg was hit in 2 places as well as his other leg. he had one or 2 bullets in his back. i can't remember staff working at this children's hospital in the ukrainian capital keep. stay here round the clock. they have to because of the security situation and the amount of work they have. these are tough times. just rational. it's really terrible. it's challenging, emotionally. it's awful. we live in the hospital, we don't go home. we are available 247 and any time day or night, morning evening we rushed to help the children and it's really difficult. maybe
6:10 pm
after all her family, some of us new school cycle support maybe. but the low we only focus on for people treatment children for low to me it will need more surgery. doctors hope he will be able to walk again. but no one really knows if his emotional scars will ever he'll. bu, good to push was ukraine's present flooding. mi zalinski has addressed israel's parliament, the connecticut lindsey told lawmakers that russia is trying to destroy the identity of ukrainians. he likened the situation to his people of his people, to the situation of the jews during the 2nd world. war accusing the kremlin of trying to wipe them out. more than a 1000 people watched
6:11 pm
a live stream on the speech on a large screen in television show of one s. i'm joined by tanya kramer who is in jerusalem for us. so there was a lot of criticism towards israel, tanya, but it also seemed that savanski took quite a similar approach to how he addressed other parliaments. yeah, i think what he was trying to do in this very strong a speech by a very tired looking up ukrainian, a president. he was trying not to talk to the lawmakers here, which was, you know, very unusual and a very unusual setting on soon because the cabinet at the kinessa, this very parliament is on recess actually. but also to try to reach out to the hearts and minds of the israeli public. and some of them were on her central square in tel aviv as we saw. so he tried to are, you know, his, he compared the history of both nations. he spoke of course, also of the jewish community in ukraine. he went back into history,
6:12 pm
talking about world war 2, about the threat or at the time a to a jews in germany and in other places, but also of course to the threat to ukrainians. right now, but he also made very clear demands and not appealing to law makers and the public saying that by sitting on the fence is well needs to take sides. and he mentioned, actually israel's iron dome, d r miss our missile defense system. he asked why is well hasn't joined a serious sanctions. he also said to her, why are ukraine wouldn't get any ammunition or weapons from israel and why israel has not cut business ties with russia. so very, you know, a clear stands from the r ukrainian president asking israel, or to take a clear stands and insights. as re eda natalie bennett has been very careful not to criticize brushes lead up. and as you said, there was a direct appeal for from
6:13 pm
a condemnation and more pressure on israel. how is it are likely to respond? well, i think a israel will continue to walk her, you know, this very cautious diplomatic align. it has been walking for all these weeks right now. i mean on the one hand we heard from d, i is really foreign minister, yet yella pete. he was more harshly condemning a rush of for the invasion. on the other hand, the israeli prime minister natalie bennett, has been very cautious and not antagonizing or russia because there are several interest he on the one hand, israel needs to keep it. security military are coordination or with rush on its northern border over of syria. on the other hand, i am israel, one's to keep friendly relations with both countries, with russia and with ukraine because it wants to help mediate between or the 2
6:14 pm
sides. we know that of israeli prime minister, enough tally bennett, has been frequently on the phone, even made a trip to russia to meet with the russian president vladimir putin. and he has said, he can only do that if he keeps, you know, are this, he, if he keeps on this cautious line. but that has also come, of course, in israel itself under criticism. because israel so far has only a sent humanitarian aid to ukraine. ok. tiny kramer speaking to us from jerusalem, thank you so much. it what ended up the news is still to come, how the war in ukraine is putting pressure on a global weight supplies, and how that's causing economic and political instability in lebanon. but 1st 2 other nears in belgium, at least 6 people have been killed and dozens injured. after a car drove into

and a half 1000 pounds. and that was the fixed price. i had just bought this for 11000 pounds. the price rise is mainly due to lebanon's, ongoing political and economic crisis. but now global events are playing a part. so the price of reeves and therefore flower and therefore red is rising at on the words. because one of the biggest thing producers is ukraine, the war there is putting lebanon in a difficult situation. we're importers are low into its thesis, like france and germany. some are even looking towards the united states. but all those options are further away than ukraine, meaning greater transport costs. and lemme malicious to look at both houses colored lamb ever since the private sector started importing wheat. it was always from the countries around the black sea and mainly ukraine and russia, them on the last 2 years, we imported 80 percent of our wheat from ukraine of new could. anya, miss bell,
