8:04 am
that's right, nick vladimir lensky has issued a warning that people should be very careful when they go as we saw mines still there that people have to watch out for when they go in. but what we're hearing now is image. we're seeing images and hearing stories of russians, just having shot people on their way out. one very stark image was the people on the ground with their hands tied behind their back. nick, who were killed and had bags over their heads. now this, according to international observers, would be a war crime, in any case, even if these were military, because in some way there is evidence that they had been taken prisoner and then killed. so basically an assassination. and this, we've seen evidence of this in all of the suburbs just about around here, where the russian forces have moved out. but ukrainians are still saying that they've, they've one sort of victory there. and
8:05 am
a lot of people who live in western ukraine like the viv here are planning to move back in as soon as the situation becomes safe enough because that the key of and the region around there had been evacuated mostly as russian troops had moved in. so next news, but the, there's certainly horrifying images we're seeing after russian troops had moved out there. absolutely horrifying. i mean, just to move on to the war elsewhere in the country and another city which has been suffering the besieged port of mariel. paul, we understand that the red cross couldn't reach the city as it's been trying to do for for weeks. now, we know why. so a caravan of buses had set out as early as thursday, due to a negotiated cease fire between russia and ukraine, around that city, opening military corridors to try to get people out of there. but the caravan had still not been able to get into the city limits of mario pole. now,
8:06 am
some 3000 civilians have been able to escape to get out of the city and then brought away on buses to see for areas. but in terms of getting into that city where an estimated 100000 or more civilians are still waiting for aid and for it to be rescued that has still not happened. the red cross said that this was due to safety issues. there been claims that russia had sabotaged it by showing on humanitarian court or by not letting aid get into the city by taking buses that were full of 8 away from the red cross and basically preventing this massive massive accusation. russia, on the other hand, has blamed the red cross for the failure thing that it was due to their own logistical problems. and russia also, their narrative is that they are taking civilians out of the city to rush and control territory into russia as well. so we have seen that buses of arrived into
8:07 am
russia from, with civilians, from our, you know, what, a lot of civilians who have escaped to western. you can tell us that these are forced evacuation that ukrainians. don't want to go to russia. they're at war with russia and they don't want to be taken basically hostage by russian under the guise of being saved from that besieged city where so much suffering is happening at this point, nick. and just one last quick question. if i may, to move things to political level, one of the top ukrainian negotiators has said there's been enough progress and talks to allow direct discussions between president vladimir putin of russia. president zelinski of ukraine. what more, you know, this is always been a demand of zelinski that no negotiation, no peace negotiations can happen unless it's between couldn't and zalinski. now we've come one step closer. it seems that the russians have agreed at least verbally, according to the ukraine, inside to the demands of ukraine to the conditions of ukraine. russia has said that they would accept ukrainian neutrality as a way to negotiate a peace and in
8:08 am
a referendum on that issue. here in ukraine and what we know so far as these talks are most likely to happen in turkey, stumble or out, but we have not seen any written confirmation of this. so that's still hangs in the air. i mean, it's even the vive, thank you so much. is a quick look at some of the other stories related to the war that we've been following for you. the cranium troops, every taken control of and toner, airport, close to the capitol key. after pushing back russian forces the wreckage of the world's largest cargo airplane was found in one of the hangers severely damaged military equipment was also left behind. more than 200 people were arrested in cities across russia during protest against the war with ukraine on saturday. that's according to a group monitoring political detention in the country. demonstrations continue despite the harsh penalties imposed by the government for what it considers the discrediting of its armed forces. polls have opened in hungary as

this country for the past couple of years and several small opposition parties, but one big alliance of various opposition pods, from left to right, that are actually normally quite divided along i'd allergic alliance, but as i say, they came together to alice promised civic to all. but then at that simple goal, that one goal that dominates here is going to be enough to convince voters to actually cast a book. a ballot for that alliance is something that we will see as this election is under way. and the results are coming in possibly later tonight, around 10 pm here in hungary. so a disparate coalition coming together, united in one goal, seeing the back of victor or been, that must be hard for them to campaign what, what are their chances campaigning was actually ongoing even until yesterday, by the i had of this alliance of disposition alliance beat out at mod, key as i, he's complaining basically on the ticket that he offers an anti corruption agenda
