a good database correspondent emanuel shes is standing by for us in la vega. emma air strikes yesterday. hitler. vale where you are and some other targets in the center and west of ukraine. tell us more. exactly, you are very care. there was a targeted or as tried to hear on the vive and elsewhere in western ukraine. there was a press conference this morning after reviews or mayor and of the head of the military of force which confirmed that to a miss size were coming. a cruise miss eyes are coming from the caspian sea air hit levine here and a re weigh infrastructure and also damaged or the chain or supply nearby. these are re weigh infrastructure including humanitarian supplies, coming from ukraine's western. our lives there were a power shortage is a huge intervene last night. they are being restored this morning. they're still
10:10 am
$600.00 houses. reserved electricity. there's water. there was briefly a water outages as well. but the city, it was prepared for such attacks and they had rendered day our power and water supply system systems autonomous, which de mayo said a for example, or save the city or for cities hospital, for example, for it being gravely or hit by such strikes. interestingly, there was also a strike in 2nd party that's in the car. patients maintains the 1st attack of the kind. it hits a communist infrastructure in altogether in western and central ukraine. last night . it's 6 re weigh stations which have been impacted. so we see that the russian forces are, are targeted, that kind of infrastructure. now, how about the situation in the rest of the country? where is the fighting most intense right now? well, it's most intense sir. and from the beginning of the conflict in the eastern part
10:11 am
of their country with british intelligence, a warning ad dad say it, there's the a number of russian battalions which have regrouped in the north eastern part near the city of crime. charles got out. you might remember this city where miss, i had the heated train station kidding. 59 as civilians, and they are also regrouping near a cemetery. don't ex, so we are expecting a more earth drags more artillery fights in that a region was oh, so last night the other style is still plans are continuous, continuously being share. then russia saying it has began a storming within a steel plan, which is the last bastion of ukrainian or resistance in the city of mar you poll. i am annual thanks for that update d w a manual shes speaking to us from of iv earlier i spoke to frank lead, which he's a senior lecturer in strategy and law at the university of portsmouth and
10:12 am
a former british military intelligence officer. i asked him how targeting western parts of ukraine feeds into russia's strategy right now? it's a fairly typical approach of an air campaign. traditionally, if you're, if you are not concerned about the civilian a war crimes aspect, to try to attack the morale and will, to fight of a population. you do that by denying them electricity, transport, water, and so forth. that seems to be what the russians are doing. middletown list, however, slightly confused as to why they're using their precision weapons on that kind of assault, rather than the more likely effective attacks on the lines of communication through which of course, nato is now pouring weapons ammunition and other supplies to the ukrainians. the answer question is, it's of a part of russian operational approach. you attack a civilian population, stop trying to establish control and try and lower their morale will to fight. right? but the main fighting and troop movements are in easton and southern parts of the
10:13 am
country as we know how much success are they having there? very interesting, rebecca, the answers towards, towards the done boss. the last couple of days has shown very, very few attacks. in fact, very almost no ground attacks. what we've had instead is a preparation of the ground by artillery. and that seems to be quite considerable. you creating the authorities are also reporting, moving in of considerable russian forces such as that, that remain into that area. so it seems a slightly changed their approach. last week they were feeding forces in piece meal this week that massing for an attack, which i think will take place towards the end of the week, prepared for by artillery. we'll see what happens. they have made some grades done and done bass area, but not as much, i think because they wanted. interestingly, on sunday, a considerable number of senior officers were killed and injured by your training strike. and the russian cheaper general staff was involved in that tackle. though i
10:14 am
think escaped maury or equally interesting the ukrainians are making considerable progress in the north east. they've taken a lot of ground off the russians east of, of cock. if that doesn't have a direct impact on the campaign. done and done. but the russians will be looking at it with with concern. why do you think there's that change change of strategy there? do you think that's an indication that the former strategy wasn't working all yes, it seems to that that would make sense. it's also probably not coincidental. that garage mom was there over the weekend. so the senior officers, of course do visit the front occasionally or just to give out metals and so forth. i would suspect in this case, it wasn't to give out metals. it was to give out a reprimands and reorganize the operation sort of kick it into shape that starts of course speculation. but certainly we've seen a slight change in approach with the massing of forces now, which is called what they should have done militarily about 3 weeks ago and waited . they didn't get interesting. we're also saying a neighboring bell or
10:15 am
a sudden large drill that started to test the armies combat readiness. what is your read into those drills? lucas will be well advised to keep his army on his own territory since it is rather more to fear from his own population of england, who's in house one with without having to mrs. fairly recent reports and without having too much access to analysis, i was suspect, this is a, this is a diversion. be a very poor idea for the rather even more ramshackle forces of belarus to try to take on any ukranian units. i suspect this is saber rattling and diversion activity may, may have something to do with the knife may, which most analysts are now looking at as an inflection point. we can't tell what the planning very poor i didn't get involved militarily. they're not capable for my british military intelligence officer, frank ledger lead, which speaking to me a little bit earlier when i was german chancellor, all i've sholtes comes under fire for declining to visit you. crane
10:16 am
a political rival has taken the chance to outdo the german data. opposition later, frederick mass made the journey to the crane and capital in a high profile visit. just 10 days before regional elections. fresure commerce hoped to be germany's next chancellor. on tuesday, he was walking through the ruins of european town on the outskirts of keys, devastated by russian air strikes. the conservative opposition leader spoke with senior ukrainian officials camera sagen. i can only say fully respect with great appreciation. i think we in germany and have an obligation to help this country and especially a city like you to pin his visits included. a one hour meeting with president, followed me as a lensky. that makes him the most high profile german politician to meet the ukranian leader since the war broke out. last month,
10:17 am
the german president planned to visit ukraine until it was revealed. he wasn't welcome reportedly, due to his previous support for russian gas projects. it's about it so, but i, i was ready for that, but apparently i have to admit that this was not wanted in kia in ts initiative. it's as you've been generally a chantelle. all of shalt said he would not be visiting ukraine anytime soon. for shelter, diplomatic snub to germany's president remains a problem might come on this bottom on. it can't be that a country that provide yet so much military aid has so much financial aid financing that is needed to guarantee security. and that is important for your current future . getting told the president cannot come. and there's one down there because it didn't come up on the call. ukraine's outspoken ambassador to berlin accused the german chancellor of taking offence and not being statesman like, which is the image, the opposition lead
10:18 am
a met thought to project on the ukraine trip. i can tell you from our side, from germany, where you all told me, can my military motor much more easy the building off? we'll see what kind putting word, but in the end now it's not the one calling the shots in berlin. so was frederick met some trip balance showing support for ukraine or about a big power struggle brewing in berlin. i put that question to database political correspondent, matthew more yeah. go since the beginning of this war, chancellor. allah schultz has been hesitant to give any indication that he was ready and willing to travel to kia. and that's an attitude that really hard and with the diplomatic riff over german president frank thought, a shy my a man who in ukraine is seen as being too close to russia historically and, and lay of that this week. all i've shopped said that he could not go until that rift had been resolved, as we just had. the ukranian ambassador to germany accused him of behaving like
10:19 am
a sulky sausage. all of that is to see that frederick match spotted avoid. anita dived into it. and if any in use the opportunity to up stage chancellor all shot. but what many didn't expect really, rebecca was that he would be granted an audience for follow to me or to lensky and not just a brief meeting, but on our long conversation. and that will probably leave many here in berlin in shots, his inner circle feeling quite better. do we know if met, met his visit, took place in consultation with the government here? certainly there were conversations between matters office and the chancellor aunt. however, he was very much acting in a personal and formal role. he didn't have the backing of the german state for this visit, and he was the security services here advised against trotter. and that said, he discussed the diplomatic row over the president, the german president and said that he would brief,
10:20 am
chancellor of shops on his return to berlin, m and i, and i think, you know, he's tried to have play slightly peacemaker. and so not too long, not to be seen to kind of to undermine tangela shalt, but certainly, you know, he'll come back with that message, but he's not an ambassador that both sides are keen to stress that, that he's not, and that he's not shots a sports person anyway, and that this was very much a visit that was informal and a personal decision to toronto is mad trying to run a sort of shadow foreign policy here is either using foreign policy to try to gain domestic political advantage. it could certainly be viewed like that. what, well, you know, some people are saying, why should frederick match travel at all? he's not at liberty to bring offers of bad financial aid or weapons. some people called him a war to rest. other said he was using this opportunity to bonuses on political profile ahead of regional elections. here in germany. for his part, friedrich match bristled at the accusation and he said it was his responsibility as
10:21 am
a senior german lawmaker to go to, to places like he had. and go to places like european and see the devastation are close. and to come back with a, with a grounded understanding of what was happening there. and to use that to, to influence policy back here in berlin. and i think that's the extent to which he will be seen as influencing german foreign policy. certainly not running a shadow foreign policy data will, is vastly more there on the russian invasion has turned the lives of ordinary ukrainians upside down. the united nations estimates that more than 5 and a half 1000000 people have been forced to flee their homeland. settling in a new country is especially difficult for those with family members who need special care. vetoed on her to escape the worn ukraine by fleeing to germany. now her main worry is keeping her 10 month old son, david's
