11:02 pm
message. the russian bull ship always has only one direction. russia blames a fire for the damage. ukraine now has a slightly different take and i work at betty senior, when you put up in the black sea region, the most 5 warship was hit by next year and shipment sustained damage. the fire started the other ships, tried to provide assistance in the storm and the powerful explosion of ammunition turn the she probably vacuum started sinking stuff done with the mosque that came to prominence at the start of the war being told to go f itself. when he tried to capture ukraine snake island in the black sea, i was
11:03 pm
in the last month, the man behind those words was awarded a metal for his bravery. initially fit killed, he and other soldiers were taken captive before being freed and a prisoner exchange. the mascara, with the main shape in russia's black sea fleet, armed with 16 cruise missiles, as well as long range defense system. if you cranes claim is true, that defense system appears to have fail catastrophically. yeah, catastrophically indeed for more or less crossover now to our russia analyst constantine igrit. he's in vilnius constantine. i mean this is stunning. how significant is the loss of the mosque room? it is stunning and did 3 years on the soviet on and nothing more could have been
11:04 pm
imagined that well, it is a blow to perceive. definitely it is a very practical blow to the black. safely to colleague mentioned 16 cruise missiles. i spoke to maybe experts today all through the day, and they told me that around about 70 of cruise missiles word before within the, in the parcels of the black, sickly. that means basically like more than 20 percent are off now. and finally, it is important that mosque law which was actually, ironically cold, slobber or glory in russian. in the solid days, it was commission in 983 was supposed to be the main air defense platform for the whole lexi fleet. it was on but well, fairly well has miss out that they failed to intercept the ukrainian crews. and if you believe the navy is also telling you something,
11:05 pm
so essentially the whole of the russian. lexi believe if one believes the equity is the export, is now without protection. eric defense protection, etc. and because the how do you explain this? how was the, how is it possible for a military power like russia to lose a worship like this? well, i see that there may be several explorations, poorly trained, poorly trained, a sentence meant sailors. essentially that is not something in ordinary i would say, but i also think that there is an explanation that bill broader a famous anti corruption activists as it relates to me a few days ago in london. and he said, i think that this invasion was actually stolen by the corrupt russian generals. i think that there are some cues to that the, the, the,
11:06 pm
the most was supposed to go modernization. they say it did. but now this more than the zation is basically gone to the good to the sea bottom. i think that's all in all. what we see today is actually not only a picture of chaos and corruption, and lack of combat training in the russian armed forces. it is the picture of put into russia in a sense constantly maggard with excellent analysis as always. constantine, thank you. thank you will. as we mentioned, ukraine is bracing for a new russian assault in the east of the country and its asking its allies to keep sending more weapons. the united states has answered that call approving an additional $800000000.00 worth of military assistance. mar, you, poll is in ruins. after weeks of russian bombardment, the u. s. says it is once again sending arms to ukraine to stop russia's destruction of the country for today. and president announced and authorize

11:08 pm
so you one system like that that can fire your 3040 kilometers away from where you are trying to break up the military long before it gets to close to you. and that's what ukrainian needed this moment they need to destroy the russian convoys before they even get to the cities or near to locations. they want to take. the pentagon said it was rushing to send the equipment, but did not provide a time table for the people in the eastern ukrainian city of seattle, rodonna ask something as simple as walking to get groceries is a calculated risk that could end in tragedy. war has brought life to a standstill though it's a disaster. god. every 10 or 15 minutes in bam. bam. bar, yes. oh, i live on the 7th floor of a 9 floor building. it just imagine boom from one side band from the other. and then you think the roof will cave in until you, well, it's a put asleep for some, the fighting is too much to bear. a bus takes them away from the bombs. but others
