elections, prime minister, victor, or man is fighting a coalition of 6 opposition parties with one goal, ousting him after over a decade in office. ah, next by sir, welcome to the program. and we start with some breaking news reports are coming in of missiles strikes on odessa in ukraine. the port city lies along ukraine's southern coastline and has been largely spared from russian attacks. unlike the devastated port city of merrill, further east ukrainian officials, 2 missiles hit, one of death as critical infrastructure facilities this morning. footage shows large clouds of dark smoke filling the sky. on friday, ukraine's military said that its anti air defenses had blocked an attempted russian
10:02 am
missile strike. and i'm joined now from odessa by lawrence sheet, a former n p r. moscow bureau chief and head of the consulting group. you're asian international analytics. he's covered soviet union in russia for over 3 decades and is now in a desk where he's been reporting on a situation for the past 2 weeks. lawrence, thanks for joining us. tell us what happened overnight this morning. about 4, 35 am we received a text message from the ukrainian air defense or to open services. that usually is followed by some sort of attack or does. it hasn't been touched much so far, with the exception of some sporadic shilling, the outskirts. but this morning at 6 am exactly extremely loud explosion. these were rockets probably fired from a great distance away. perhaps even in russia, they do have that capability. the, the goal and the aim and the target were, was the port area. this is the biggest port,
10:03 am
obviously in ukraine 70 percent of trade comes through desa. it is a major, major green exporting country. and most of that green goes through the ports being closed due to russian blockade of the port recently. but the noise was deafening. it went on for a couple of minutes, several misses did land. then we heard a rush workplace, which then dropped bombs in other areas. they were distinct in their sound from a missile about 4 minutes after that we heard more bombs in other areas and it doesn't really get the heart of the city or where the pedestrians are. because a close you are to the point which is blocked off. if you are people, there are, but it did cause panic in the city. i live in baldwin columbia from the court itself. and people with di, met several attacker cars and left to be for their weight from court. can you tell
10:04 am
me more about how people have been reacting as death has been largely spared compared to mario, paul and other cities? this is surprise how our people behaving, given this attack. i don't think it's any surprise. i think the people, of course, were many people redistributed, charge me t, v. i was getting calls from french because there has been largely spared for various reasons. but in fact, it's the crown jewel, perhaps even more important to give in some ways key was the administrative center . but this is a story city. one which had a jewish tra, majority up until $941.00 and still deeply identified with judaism. you know, that's only about 4 percent of the people solve identifies used many people. ringback so i have jewish relatives, jewish heritage, jewish, jewish root, things of this nature. so there's definitely an old surprise, but not among the military. this is an extremely well defended city. on the people
10:05 am
go ahead, i'm sorry. no, no. i just wanted to know you were saying this was a crown jewel, so you're telling me sort of how this fits into the, to the, to the big picture of rushes invasion of ukraine. it, this is really important. it's really important. in fact, in 2014, when russia began and start reducing ukraine, idea was this greener, russia, it's called nowhere to see new russia, historical russia, which would include done yet, the don boss, the crimea, and then the southern parts of ukraine, basically land locking in the country are often people to talk about the possibility of taking the city. well, russia has me say mariel, which is much, much smaller and much well, less defended and does not have the underground fortifications to the extent that are destro does on their symbolism here. because of the association with well, with jewish culture, jewish history, and this cannot help but disturb people into we've been seeing that recent days.
10:06 am
but this was an extremely intense attack, and it did scare people very, very much there still black smoke coming from the burning oil facilities along work just outside of my house. you can see here waiting in the are ok. lauren sheets. thank you so much for that. update, and we'll hope to be talking to later again today for the developments. thank you. crane says russian troops have either withdrawn or been repelled from the entire region around keep. the defense ministry says its forces have re taken more than 30 towns and villages for weeks battles north of the capital region kept russian forces from advancing. some of the true cost of that resistance is now becoming clear as ukrainian soldiers and members of the red cross enter these locations. a warning to our viewers. this next report contains some images. many will find disturbing. as russian troops withdraw from northern districts of keys,
10:07 am
ukrainian forces are arriving to find death and destruction in their wake. the town of who has the scene of what some here are describing as a massacre. dozens of bodies lie on the road. resident save the retreating russian shot any one they found but a hor dully. they mean these people were just walking and they shot them without any reason or bang in the next neighbourhood stucco. it was even worse. they shot without asking any questions. shot the whistle nicked on you to his brother who has town mayors as these are just some of several 100 civilians killed oh street and you do the sort of executed people still lying, the blue sky street and book you in the hands of ty behind that box with white civilian rags from it. they was shot in the back of the heads. in an open trench bodies appear to be partially burned. it's feared russian troops may have also left
10:08 am
explosives and land mines behind. in european, another town north of the capital, a red cross team filled the devastation as they arrived to treat the survivors elsewhere. ukrainian forces say they are re taking all the towns and villages in the kiev region that had been under russian control. the president, a lot of mayors to lensky, is warning. russia may be readying its forces to attack elsewhere. and earlier we spoke to our correspondent ammunition in the western ukrainian city of live eve. and we asked him about what his hearing concerning a situation in the areas around the capitol. vermeer lansky 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,
10:09 am
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 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 the key of and the region around there had been evacuated, mostly as russian troops had moved in. so mix news, but these are certainly horrifying images we're seeing after russian troops had
10:10 am
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 mary o. paul, we understand that the red cross couldn't reach the city as has been trying to do for, for weeks now. and 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, 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
10:11 am
be rescued that has still not happen. 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 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 were so much suffering is happening at this
10:12 am
point. next. that was dw correspondent, i mean a seat in the western ukrainian city of movies. but here's a quick look at some other stories related to the war we've been following. for you . ukrainian troops have re taken control of antonio, airport, close to the capitol. keith, 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 on ukraine on saturday. that's according to a group monitoring political detentions in the country. demonstrations continued despite the harsh penalties imposed by the government for what it considers to be the discrediting of its armed forces. polls have opened and hungry as the country chooses its next leader and what is expected to be the tightest race in over a decade. voters are choosing between nationalist prime minister victor orvin and
10:13 am
a coalition of 6 opposition parties who have come together in a bid to oust him. orbit of the right wing fetus party is seeking a 4th consecutive term in office. and dw correspond if and if a chart joins us from budapest, fannie, the selection has been called, as we're just saying in the most important in a generation does, does that sound right to you? some people even call it historic name for a very pure fact that for the very 1st time and recent hungarian election, history and alliance of various opposition parties from left to right united in their desire to oust prime is to victor alba. so if you cast your bellow today, you don't only have the choice between the govern party fetus that's been governing 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 electrical lines. but as i say they came together to alice promised to victor alba. but at that simple goal,
10:14 am
that one goal that dominates here is going to be enough to convince voters to actually cast they bought a ballot for that alliance. is something that we will see as this election is on the way. and the results are coming in. possibly later tonight, around 10 p. m here in hungary. and that was d. w correspondent, funny for char, reporting from hungry. and now for some of the other headlines around the world, flash floods in land slides have killed at least 8 people, including 6 children across the brazilian state of rio de janeiro. 13 people are reported to be missing. it's the latest in a series of deadly storms to hit the region in the past few months. pakistan's prime minister in rand can is staying in office after plans to vote him out or blocked. a no confidence motion to remove can was scrapped after the speaker pakistan's parliament ruled it was unconstitutional. can maintain that the mayor, united states is trying to oust him because of his foreign policy. he told the
