3:04 pm

3:05 pm
a nearby hotel where civilians were staying. now russia says it's targeting military infrastructure in ukraine. or what can you tell us about the target of these attacks in libby? well, just like in any other big cities, you are bound to find places which will be of interest as a target for russian military. of course, did your credit on government is not gonna tell exactly what is of interest in the city of the for russians. but you can also, you can think about the a railway infrastructure as you can think about military training grounds, for example, which would be of interest as a target for russian ortz ortiz. but like i said, here, people in the we've had been as bad, relatively is bad so far. and it's a city where you find thousands of people who have fled from the eastern part of ukraine host thought. and they had found shelter there,
3:06 pm
here. and it appears to not be the case anymore from her as terms, and were thank you very much. our correspondent manuel shows there in louise. meanwhile, in the eastern city of mario paul, a few 1000 fighters and some civilians are believed to have been encircled in a vast steel plant near the port. it's the last pocket of ukrainian resistance in the city. russia claims to have complete control of all mario poles. urban areas and has left much of it in, in the shutters. mario pole has not fallen yet. the port city has suffered the brunt of russian attacks in ukraine. it has been under siege for several weeks now. ukraine says at least 21000 people have been killed and those who remain in the city are trapped without the barest of
3:07 pm
necessities. one is happening here and mario poll is expected to soon spread to other areas too. or is he sca russian troops are preparing for an offensive operation in eastern ukraine in the near future. what they want to literally finish off and destroy the don bass. this you destroy everything that brought fame to this industrial regional russian forces are destroying mario poll. you want to wipe it off the face of the earth and other cities in the done yet and low hands, corinthians ramadi, the net we will escal, blasi, on sunday, ukraine's remaining troops and mario poll defined rushes surrender. old di ultimatum. some tuna, half 1000 ukrainian troops, and a few 100 foreign mercenaries are dug in here at the sprawling as of stall steel plant. it is now the only known remaining pocket of resistance. many civilians and
3:08 pm
children are also sheltering here. with the passing of the surrender deadline, pro russian separatist forces say they are now preparing for attack hoopa. there are only 2 blocks of buildings left before the mill. yeah. there's a small area around the factory and the enemies. they're hiding, the basements, they do for the little fellow. we're preparing the ground assault. the artillery will show them 1st before we send in close quarters, assault troops will show up at about a quarter later. meanwhile, mario pulse defenders are set to fight till the end. t w's. rebecca ritters is in air pin on the outskirts of chip. i asked her about ukraine's president, saying he'll pull out of peace talks of russian forces, kill the soldiers defending maria pull. that's right, terry. i just after that surrender or di order was given by russia president once he came out and said, if those soldiers of the ukrainian so does are harmed,
3:09 pm
if they're killed, then the pace talks will die with them. but in reality, the face talks have been dead in the water for a few weeks now. ever since the russians retreated from areas like air p more, i'm standing right now. like boot church is famed across the world now for some of the worst atrocities were seen in this conflict. so far, the peace talks really stalled. after that, i mean that the of laudermill zalinski continuing to say that piece talks were important and that he wanted to continue them because ukraine needs piece. but obviously as the of the atrocities came to light, it makes it very difficult for those talks to continue. what happens in mary upa will be make or break for those talks as blood middle, as he has stated, has been rumored that on the weekend or russian oligarchy, roman abram avila was in keith to try to revive those talks. but the foreign minister of ukraine has said that russia and ukraine still not talking. so it'll
3:10 pm
definitely wait and see what is going to happen in mary paul. was staying with mary paul for a moment. well, we heard in our report there around $2500.00 ukrainian soldiers and also some civilians we understand or are currently holding out in that still works in mario for what or can you tell us about the situation there for that steel or that steel mill as you say a is a vast network of factories of warehouses has been called a fortress city. there's also an underground network of tunnels. and that is what, where they have managed to, to stay still stay away from the worst of the russian fire. and the reason that the ukrainians have been able to push back in this massive david and goliath fight we're seeing in mary you, paul, it's, it's also one of the reasons why last week this time, last week of his fucks purse and for the russian military said that they could and would use chemical weapons to try and get them out of there. they was then reports
3:11 pm
that same day that a chemical attack was used on the steel plant that still remains unconfirmed. whether or not that did actually take place fit. definitely a sign that russia struggling to get hold of that last ukrainian stronghold because of the vast network of underground tunnels, immune warfare that ukraine definitely have an advantage over d. w rebecca rivers reporting there from european near keith. well, the intensifying assault in ukraine comes after russia suffered a major loss on thursday. the black sea flagship, the moscow sank under a legit after allegedly being hit by ukrainian missiles, something the kremlin denies. now images have surfaced, appearing to show the warship on fire and engulfed in smoke just moments before. it's saying the missile cruiser was the biggest russian warship to sink while in action since world war 2. i asked w's russia, analyst,
3:12 pm
konstantin egg about how damaging those images might be. for president vladimir putin war effort. i think that's not only nearly professionals, but basically the general public can grasp what goes on in this, in this picture as it is a p r. blue is definitely something that says quite a bit about the, the comb with readiness all or at least elements of the russian navy. and that means probably also quite some of the rationale. and it is quite an embarrassment, frankly speaking, especially bearing by the fact that i spent quite a lot of time in the last, let's say, 10 years, a trumpeting the modernization. and then you progress of the, of the russian fleet. you say that the sinking of the moscow does tell us something about russia's military capabilities. does it raise any doubts about russia's
3:13 pm
ability, konstantin, to capture and control eastern regions of ukraine? well, if you extrapolate, ah, what happened with the most gone? well, at least some of the of the ground forces? probably yes. ah, but with regard to the more mosque, right. so it is quite, quite a, quite a significant loss practical loss of who the who resume the comic operations. i spoke with several navy experts in the run up to, to our conversation. and there are at least 2 things that are clear. i must law was supposed to be the main air defense platform of the whole lexi fleet. and because of that, of those troop transports, that potentially can carry russian troops from, say, the crime in billions to lead to the ukrainian coast, they felt protected. not anymore. none of the ships that remain within the be in the, in the black sea lead
3:14 pm
a capable of providing effective air coverage for the truck transport. so maybe there's going to be a few of them and maybe if there are ukrainians, can attack them essentially with impunity. and 2nd thing, any kind of an attempt to say, take the part about this some from the see i will be now will probably do that. and i mean i, one military expert told me they'd rather not even tries. because without the missile coverage from the mosque law, it will be just completely mission impossible. meanwhile, russian forces appear to be intensifying their attacks. constantine saying they hit more than 300 ukrainian targets overnight. the ukrainians recreating presence. lensky has singled peace talks, may now be off the table. what's the view from the kremlin? is president putin at all interested in peace talks?
3:15 pm
well, the thing that until now it was just a way of presenting himself as a reluctant warrior to the public at home and to well wherever remains believing in the world where we see i'm a metal piece. i really want, i want really want the solution is, is just the stubborn that asking them what the whole commitment from moscow. i think that's a couple of days ago, i think right, terry lansky said that he's goal is actually recapturing the whole of the ukrainian east, including the areas that will take over by russia in 2014. well probably there is no, there is no reason to have any peace on because it seems that the, the final goes completely incompatible. i think the landscape things in terms of essentially driving the russian forces from at least significant parts of the east . well, put in the really that's where the generals one out who's,
3:16 pm
who's paying for the balance. they think about capturing mario bill and kind of securing a land bridge between the russian federation problem and the crime in finance. when these trouble will be unfolding in front of us, there is in the coming 3 weeks because just to remind the one thing, 9 to me, the day is the main stage holiday, the main date in the 1000 years. they say the russians, the history that put in the proclaims, and he has to show something will be day. so i'm afraid going to be very, very intense by the wal mart. although looking at how the russian troops before the pool, maybe it's not yet that i'm going going to be decided constant. thank you very much . as always, our correspondent konstantin egg. as the ukrainian army suffers losses in battle, more men are being called up to serve for now. only reservists have to answer the call, but all men deemed eligible to serve our band from leaving the country and could be
3:17 pm
drafted to the front lines. for som, it's a battle they relish for others. it's one they dread. t w's, i mean s if has been to meet, some of them will have to grab a gun if i will have to fight for ukraine. so i think i will stay and i will do what i need to do when will yes, it is a lot of time cold up and i think i'm ready even though i've never held a weapon in my life and everything can be learned step by step i'm following him, sir. as that says, not no harm to any living creature. i didn't have some personal hate or desire to use a wireless like writing against people, but to well, if, if there was, if there was no option. well, i'm interested in defending this land from intruders. and there's lots of
3:18 pm
other interesting ways of doing this currently working, working as, as a hairdresser, it's my profession. and i miss for journalists, and i'm just derived from the gina lympics, like on the 23rd of february. and like next the next morning, the divorce bars to ah verify y'all be present on our public broadcast mushrooms. there's been a movie nickel we evacuated for, keep and we're continuing to work on the information from martini from that of. it's a very important moment now to move victims, we will not get up with someone. may i ask why we men aren't on the front lines, but i would say, anthea, we're also on a front line right now, but a very, some of that of, i don't know what will happen, like in 2 days in 3 days here,
3:19 pm
but i suppose like every ukrainian have to who have to do their jump. what to do? it's a man question and my wife and my daughter are in another country now and in poland. i can probably only see them off the wool when they can return to ukraine river in it, cuz i don't have your own. and i thought, oh, clean. my mom and my girlfriend's parents sold, they left on the road and i got the hod didn't i didn't call my daughter for the 1st 3 weeks and they were like, cuz it was very emotional and i couldn't hold back my tears. but so i didn't call to 3 weeks, up a phone call about it since i started to calm down because we've been in touch with miss shelf myself, financing options. now, i just stayed here waiting for something. i didn't actually waiting for victory of
3:20 pm
ukrainian army. and d w's, i mean, s f who filed that report, joins me now in the studio to, i mean, you traveled in ukraine. you spoke to many young ukrainian men. what's your impression of their feelings surrounding the topic of fighting for their country? military? there was as many opinions as there are men in ukraine, i think. and i'll say that it was very difficult to do this report to get people to talk to me because of how emotional this topic is and how taboo it is as well. a lot of people didn't want to talk on camera because they thought i was asking them to tell me that they were cowards or to, to get out of them that they didn't want to fight, that they didn't want to join the ukrainian army. but i said, look, come to my studio, i'm going to ask you how this law has affected your life and you tell me whatever you want to. and in the end, i got to talk to several people. and the picture became clear that you have people
3:21 pm
who were disappointed because they signed up on the very 1st day of the war and were turned away because the crating military at that point was not taking anybody except people who had combat experience. and so they've been trying since then to fight. we have other people who are like we saw the support, who followed buddhist practice of a him sir, and would never kill anything and small as a mosquito, but at the same time have stayed in ukraine. and because they want to help the country fight off the invaders. so in general, the opinion was that they did, they wanted to help. the question is how they can help you. you mentioned the law. we're talking about conscription law that's also keeps people from leaving the country men. what exactly or the rules for young ukrainians when it comes to either fighting or not fighting for their country. so at the start of the war, zalinski said no men between the ages of 18 and 60 could leave the country. and every man between the ages of 18 and 27, which was this was already in place before the war had to and has to sign up to be
3:22 pm
conscripted. now at the moment they are only on phase 3 of the conscription, which means that in the beginning they took men who had military experience, who had combat experience already. now they've moved as far as taking men who have had some kind of training, but they would still need to be trained a little bit further before they could be sent to the frontlines face for would be the general mobilization, which would mean anybody, any man between the ages of $18.60 could be sent to the front lines, but mostly cranes believe that we're still far away from that. now the rule that affects most people is this rule that they can't leave the country. and that has actually split up a lot of families. there are a few exemptions to this rule. if you have a child with autism for example or disability, then you could leave the country to be with your family if they fled. ok. what about opposition to these rules? have you, did you see any of that? it's very small,
3:23 pm
but there's evidence that it is happening that border guards in moldova report over 1000 people having migrated illegally over the border there because there are no fences. people are paying smugglers up to $15000.00 to get out. so it's small. but you can tell that there are some men who are trying to get out at all costs. and thank you very much for your reporting and your insights. d w. i mean, s a sketch up on some other stories making headlines around the world today. the death toll from tropical storm meggy in the philippines has risen to 172. with another 110 people reported missing. the storm has triggered lands, lives and floods, which have devastated communities in central regions. authority, se rain and unstable ground are hampering rescue efforts. or then 440 people have been killed in flooding in landslides in south africa's course zulu, not tal province. it's one of the deadliest storms to hit the region. dozens are
