a deadly new phase. here commission chief earth, lavonda lyons says, it's just a matter of time before russia goes bankrupt. is russia running against the clock and sanctions in this war? while ukraine is rushing to keep itself armed, well, earlier we spoke to at last night, cough she is a russia analyst from the university college london. and she explains the background battles taking place at the moment we have on the battlefield is essentially the ukrainians. having them on power, particularly 3 mobilization, but needing sort of more firepower. the russian major problem is the lack of manpower. so even if we hear the stories of sort of time produces no longer being able to produce tags, no difficulties in trying to create sort of new equipment actually does of equipment. the russians have enough. but it's a question whether they have sufficient sort of manpower. so just to be able to
fight it in the long run. sanctions will of course, have very negative feedback in terms of russians capacity to rebuild themselves militarily. but i think that unfortunately, the effect may not be quick enough with regards to the actual battle field and that say the decisive battle field in done bus. and that the sanctions are not really going to be able to fact that in the short term, in the long run, absolutely, the russians, russian military were much weakened by the sanctions that have been placed against them in law present. got to me as the lensky is hoping for progress in ukraine's application to join the european union. he submitted a membership documents to the representative in keith. ukraine wants to be granted candidate status at an summit in june. we have to look at some of the stories making headlines around the world. turkey's defense ministry says it has attacked kurdish fighters in northern iraq, if used plains helicopters,
