4:11 pm
united kingdom cannon and further to deny russia the benefits of international economic system that they so enjoyed in the past. we don't know how long this war will last. but as we approached the 2 month mark, here's what we do now. put in his fail to achieve his grand ambitions on the battlefield. after weeks of showing keith, keith still stands, pres lensky, and his democratic connected government still remain power and ukrainian armed forces joined by many brave ukrainian civilians have for the russians con, question their country eman bolster from day one by an unstinting supply of weapons, ammunition armor intelligence from the nations of the free world, led by us the united states. as russia continued to grind out the military advances, and their military adventures and the brutalities against ukraine, put this bank in our losing interest. that's been my view of you heard me say this
4:12 pm
from the beginning. he was counting on nato european union. our allies in asia cracking, moving away. he's betting on western unity will crack. he's still better not. and once again, we're going to prove him wrong. we will not lessen our revolve. we're going to continue to stay with the brave and proud people of ukraine. we will never fail in our determination to defend freedom in the post charity. it's as simple as that. so again, i want to thank the american people. thank american people for their support of the ukrainian people. this is our, this is our responsibility seems to me and we've been able to hold the whole world together in this effort. so thank you very much. thank you. the what does, i'm going to take this one or 2 question. why? why does it, what does proven claiming control over mary? is that how significant is that? well, 1st of all, it's questionable whether he does control mary. one thing for sure,
4:13 pm
we know about variable. he should allow your managerial corners to let people on that steel mill and other places are buried under rumble to get out to get out. that's what any, any, any head of state would do in such a circumstance. and so there is no evidence yet that mary paused completely fall. i title 40 or lady lizzie. what i consider it is continuing to hear from my my, 1st of all, there's going to be an appeal by the just department. because as a matter of principle, we want to be able to be in a position where if in fact it is strongly concluded by the scientists that we need title 42, that we be able to do that. but there has been no decision on extending title. 42. thank you. the monologue in the us maintain the level and piece of this military
4:14 pm
support for ukraine. i. we have a capacity to do this for a long time. the question is, are we to continue to maintain the supported international community and keep the pressure on kootenai to prevent him from over running the country? number one and number to make sure we continue to maintain the economic sanctions which over time and we're beginning to cedar devastating their economy in their ability to move forward. so the most important thing right now is maintain unity so far so good. thank you. i love him, a little money with and or 2 of your is just are joining us everyone. welcome to the of you news. we just heard president joe bind, delivering remarks on additional military assistance to ukraine. he announced to
4:15 pm
some $500000000.00 in direct economic assistance to the ukrainian government and to support ukraine. he pledged to send weapons to the front lies or the president are saying that to the package that he has committed to include heavy artillery and drones. he commended the ukrainian, resolved to repel russian forces and to help them in this new offensive debt at russia has launched in the east. um, i suggest we go now to our guest, a doctor. i glare at. net cough. she is an expert on russia's foreign and security policy and she joins us from london. thank you very much for your time. i don't know if she had the opportunity to listen in a to that press conference that we just aired. and i just wanted to get your reaction. how crucial is this additional $500000000.00 and a heavy weapon?
4:16 pm
is there a package that the u. s. is pledging to provide ukraine with? so i think it is important. i mean essentially as by self recognized what it. a does is it shows the us resolve to continue with terry to support ukraine. and i think that's very important because as you're kind of how talks about, you know, they are using up the military assistance that essentially the west is providing. and so they will keep on having to have reinforcement when dumbass enters, it's more active stage and effectively as you will be using off a lot of the sort of heavy machinery, heavy artillery that the u. s. is going to be sending them over something out there also i think is important is. 5 president biden's, recognition of the importance of the economic assistance to ukraine. from the credit standpoint, this is not the war is not only a heavy blow in the military and humanitarian temps, but also for the credit in economy. so that i am asked for example today has come
4:17 pm
out with the fact that the client will need sort of $15000000000.00 in assistance over the next 3 months, economically speaking. so i think his recognition that situation ukraine, is it a critical junction both in terms of security support, but also the economic assistance is very important. the situation is at a critical juncture and speaking of critical, i hope we can turn our attention out to the situation and marty, who paul, which has been reduced to a decimated house cape and that stand off at the steel plant there. what you think is behind president boons decision to not storm the steel plant? medical i think effectiveness of recognition that to store that will be very difficult for the russians and that they will sustain heavy losses and they will take a long time. so i would go along with sort of put in his own assessment that essentially it's not effective for the russian troop to store. met lose
4:18 pm
a lot of manpower and actually it is more effective from the point of view of the russian troops to blood could continue the blockade because of the clients are unable to resupply their troops in the adolfo adolfo, plugged and therefore, you know, it will be a matter of time to the blockade, effectively creat situation with a fight as will have to come out. and the russians would like to preserve the truth . they would like to move them to dump us to link up with their trips in the hunt can done. yes, and therefore if i did it, i'm not prepared to lose them over the the complicate of as austell. so what happens next? now, what does victory look like for the russians? i think that this is the, you know, $1000000.00 question. we don't know. i think commentators and i would agree with this estimate to say that in some ways put in can turn anything into victory. the
4:19 pm
russian public over on the whole seems to be supporting the war. they don't seem to have a good idea as to what a victory looks like. and in that respect, i think it is down to put in what he wants to see as a victory. and i think that's why the situation so dangerous because somebody don't know what is enough to put in, you know, is a victim of them. are you open enough? is the taking over all, all of the la hans done? yes. last victory. is it pushing further into the parts of easton, ukraine is, is getting a negotiation between himself and us. we don't know at this stage what a sufficient thing. that is why it is a dangerous situation. develops dr. a glass net cough, an expert on rushes for an insecurity policy. thank you very much for taking our questions. thank you. great new investigators. meanwhile, our carrying out the painstaking work of zooming bodies from makeshift graves is
