10:04 am
taken out by modern western anti tank missiles. was it 50 cottages, get on a peacock with the javelins and, and lows and drive to the place where you expect them to come eat them and then you're able to leave the sing quickly that they would as a choice. no, it's still pretty chill right? oh, in the forest the rhine territory of sca you can still see the bodies of russian soldiers . russian losses are believed to have been extremely high. ukrainian soldiers describe their attacks as on coordinated but very destructive. this school was hit by a rocket. several thank they were tanks, there was more bell artillery. it was every ation they sent everything they had over was all and the did not care that much of this did not land on target. it was chaotic fire shelling without any plan, hoping they were horn. miss, principally called fish, newborn. ukraine accuses russia of systematic war crimes shelling of
10:05 am
civilians. they say these villages lie behind the lines and were bombed from the air house after house destroyed, possibly to demoralize the ukrainians. but as the next big battle begins in the east, the commander of this unit thinks that russia's actions have made ukrainians even more determined. vom hopefully we're ready is up with me and if the west accent quickly gives us the military aid that we need more military equipment and technology, then i think victory will be ours and it might come soon already. we will, but more with. so mom, it was a school his optimism is not shared by most expert, most expect a long war of attrition. and for more on this let's bring in just in crump, is the ceo of the global risk analysis company. sibling is also a veteran of the british armed forces with experience in many recent wars,
10:06 am
and he joins us from the united kingdom. mr. come, what do you make of the comments? we just heard by a russian commander who said that full control of southern ukraine would give russia access to the break way regional trends. the street yeah. and the deputy commander of the central military district until yesterday. so it's not come from the very top, but he's a particularly senior commander in russian hierarchy. so it's comment you have to take seriously the stop this invasion. there was a russian baton in touch group in transition, i think slated to take part in the occupation. ukraine, and we thought that would probably move when russian forces got close to odessa. now that was stored, if you remember by the defense of mich left, the city to kim is the mayor of a few weeks ago. and that stopped ambitions that way. and i think rush is always lead towards this plan. and so it's, i mean it's been taken seriously for a long time. but this is the 3rd statement that's really pointed towards that from
10:07 am
a senior military figure at the focus right now. and just to look at the war as a whole, and the constant request from president to lensky for weaponry are the ukranian forces getting everything they need. and if not, what's missing? interesting. listening to the segment just now. and the discussion of the tank missiles and rockets, which is, which is true or useful indeed in slowing down the rush nom advances. but when you really look, this has been an artillery conflict. so the, the missiles we use to stop the russian movement, whether by blocking the road or just the confusing cause, when a vehicle explode suddenly and throws everyone else in disarray. it was artillery far landing, also that the scattered russian forces and stopped an attack that broke up the formation and, and did the real damage. and that's been the case was so there it's not been as obvious or is witnessed. it's been already that's been vital to both sides and you
10:08 am
had the mention of crushing rushing fire power place down without really g regard to targeting civilians or anything else just lay down in an area they thought they were being attacked from. so terry's been the key and that's why there's been so much focus this week on providing more artillery pieces to ukraine and much more artillery ammunition to ukraine, including nato systems, and have come from a number of major countries kind of has been very prominent. the u. s. s. and how it says as well, that training ukrainian forces and how to use those. but most importantly, the ammunition, i mean, the amount of ammunition that gets used in this sort of complex is huge. and will that artillery and these new weapons coming ukrainian way be decisive, where the, the big part of the fighting is, is occurring now in the east. it's too early to say, i hate that answer isn't analyst. but it really is a very finally balanced combat in the don't bass. russia has concentrated more power that had started the war. conversely,
10:09 am
ukraine's been able to make some forces around it, threatens left the north. that particular forces around call came to threaten the back of the russians, the russians advance and they've had time to dig in positions to choose the ground against defend. so both sides of got advantages where they started to complete both sides. both disadvantages and the russians still didn't have an overwhelming material superiority on the, on the battlefield. we attack at $3.00 to $1.00, the russians, probably a $2.00 to $1.00 amendment, which is not a situation that's ideal. they can't really generate a lot more force in the don't bass. so i think this is one of the reasons that the bond. so it's very slow at the moment. who said the weather doesn't seem right now, and i think she's trying to find a way through the ukrainian defenses slowly and steadily. but it remains very much in the balance, especially with these additional weapon systems coming in to support ukraine. and hence is a little bit of a race against time, i think for both sides to try and either stole russian offensive, new printing inside or from the russians just to finally overwhelm ukrainian forces
