7:02 pm
important that at least we keep now good conducts to each and every one and did other corresponded. alexandra phenomena is in berlin. following that meeting, alexandra, there seems to be an issue with tacky, agreeing to finland and sweden joining ne to why is that and what is the issue? well, we have to say that many here were christ white surprised that turkey expressed out of the nowhere. there are misgivings about sweden and finland are joining the alliance. and we just heard from the turkish foreign minister here who said that that is, are unacceptable that both country as he put it, are as supporting and engaging with the kurdish extra extremist kurdish organization. their p k, k that is considered a terrorist organization and he said that turkey has always support her to the open door policy of the alliance. but that it is turkish people who are against it,
7:03 pm
who are calling on the government to block her potential finish and swedish membership of the alliance. however, he also added that this is something that the foreign ministers are going to talk about tonight. so he left the door open for a kind of compromise, and many ministers. he told us that they're actually just wants to really listen and, and, and get to know what turkeys real intentions. here are. now it'll be interesting to see how those talks develop their alexander, thank you for the moment because we'll be back with you shortly. but 1st, i want to take a closer look at sweden and finland departure from their former stance on the military alliance. namely, nato, becoming a full member of nato, used to be aligned finland and sweden did not intend to cross in brussels. that line is actually a street with partner countries on one side and nato allies. on the other. we meet
7:04 pm
finland's nato ambassador, close caught on in, at the building where his mission is located for now after the russian aggression against ukraine. so our security environment in europe and also northern europe, europe, it has changed. ah, it's now more insecure. and no, i think this, this move her to increase our corporation and become member of over nato. is the right step. the alliance has always made clear to finland and sweden. there's a place for them here, room for more flags and some offices that could use new tenants. but as some of the most wealthy well equipped countries in europe, these new nordic members would feel much more important gaps than those sweeping land bring difference assets to nato. finland famously brings the ability to guard of barren lat long land border with russia. we even brings a 500 year old navy and
7:05 pm
a navy that is among the largest in the baltic sea where we should remember. nathan doesn't have very many large mabis. accepting the 2 country should be a no brainer for nato says, former finish prime minister alexander stood that morning to compatible the most natal member states himself. so deck fiddler as an example, we will wear spent about 2 percent of our g, d, p on military ah, expenditure. we have a reserves of 900000. we can mobilize 280000 quickly. during the war time, we have 62 f. 8, teens just bought $64.00 f, $35.00, and indeed nato secretary general against oldenburg has said this would be a record fast accession process. once the 2 governments formerly confirmed they wanted join, though it will still take months. 30 nieto governments stamps of approval even ahead of their formal applications. finland and sweden or receiving pledges from allies of defense of back up against possible russian retaliation. and they'll be
7:06 pm
providing security as well. i think finland is already her protecting the northern flank of the alliance and her with and they to membership that would be even more effective. maybe we have more visibility and and more information, more experience on oh, what, what is going on and what might happen? so i think yes, i think that perspective will be welcome. mutual security is already a 2 way street, but bound to be easier when all the nordic countries and nato are on the same side of it. went back to debris correspond and alexander phenomena who is in berlin, following this informal nato foreign minister meeting, which is a, a 1st off. it's kind really what else will be discussed there over the weekend. rush us war on ukraine is of course, front and center of this meeting with nato allies trying to, to threat carefully here. because of course,
7:07 pm
they want to step up their support for ukraine. but at the same time, they don't want to become a party in this war. and to one of them. a slovak, has foreign minister told us that they want to support us, did that russia has already lost to the war politically. and so they will be talking about individual allies supporting more weapons to ukraine. but what it's also on the agenda is to long term strategy that nato allies want to have by and for their summit in madrid to be able to agree on that. and here, one of the questions is, of course, not only how to deal with russia right now. what, but also, what are the lessons learned for the future more i did all the correspondent, alexander phenomena. thank you so much. a foreign ministers from the group of 7
7:08 pm
countries say they will reject russia's attempts to change international borders by force. she said and ministers addressed rushes, invasion of ukraine at their meeting and northern germany. german foreign minister on alina burbock, also called for an end to russia's locate of ukraine's ports. she accused moscow waging a food war on the world by causing millions of tons of grain to go to waste. that she 7 vowed to increase pressure on russia through sanctions. i called on char china to not undermine international efforts to isolate moscow. germany's foreign minister said the g 7 would support ukraine financially and militarily, as long as necessary, less less men. we support every measure and every step they are taking to ensure that people in ukraine and this is also our common goal as g 7 can live as everybody else in europe again in peace, but also insecurity and freedom in their own country. and we will support ukraine
7:09 pm
on this pass with whatever it take to ensure that they have freedom and peace in their own country. and we have also made very clear that it's our go, that rush, this bridge was international law that the imperial strategy often aggressor would screeches international peace order and law will not succeed. my russian troops are withdrawing from around ukraine's 2nd largest city car keith. after bombarding it for weeks, ukraine and forces, however, still lack the tillery and armor they need to tip the scales in their favor. meeting with a u. s. and a delegation and key if president followed mister lensky once again, pressed home, ukraine's urgent need for more powerful military equipment and supplies. republican leader, mitch mcconnell leads the u. s. senate delegation on a stroll through kiff to show their support for ukraine's war effort. it was all
7:10 pm
smiles and hand shakes as they met with president zelinski. how are you? good and regular? well her thank you. we know each other. oh yeah. that's zalinski made it clear that smiles and hand shakes and polite small talk won't drive the russians out of ukraine. his armed forces need more long range artillery and strike aircraft to be able to hit russian forces and disrupt their supply lines. ukraine's general staff said the russians were pulling back from khaki if, as they pressed their offensive in the southeast residence of villages around khaki for our coming to terms with the destruction left in the wake of russia's retreat. weeks of artillery bombardment and occupation have taken a heavy, tall russia launched fresh ground and air attacks in the eastern done its province aiming to deplete ukrainian forces and destroy their fortified positions. the russian military seems
7:11 pm
to have an inexhaustible supply of machinery and men. president philadelphia, zalinski said that the outcome of the war would depend on support from europe and other allies. meanwhile, russian forces still haven't managed to defeat the last ukrainian fighters in the southern city of murder. you fall, families of the soldiers hold up in the us of style. steelworks are asking china to help negotiate an evacuation of the wounded dumb object of ins. enough bounded what goes on. there is no longer a war, murders are taking place there, but i can see hundreds of wounded with no limbs and no anesthetics but a divine. while new bombardments inflict new wounds on already wounded fighters when they, they're exhausted. and just below the line of life's thought, we want them to be rescued. mach watch a mile away, equal to vala. any government. she said that surrendering is not an option, as she believes the russians would execute any captured members of the as of
7:12 pm
regiment. the group of wives also appealed to turkey, to arrange the evacuation of the as of style defenders by sea. and joining me now is dea, a correspondent, a fanny foster in keir funny are we heard that russians well pulling back from katy's. what else can you tell us about the situation there? a festival is seen. he or she and keith see the very, i'm right now as, as like a small victor actually a significant victory in terms that obviously this is the fastest advancement by far while this war is raging on. and while the russian forces have drawn from the key for each and know how to keep being the 2nd largest city in ukraine, and the ukrainian force is being able to repel some of these russian forces from some territories towards the north and the north and eastern part of harkey is seen here as a victory and also is seen actually as a way of saying, it seems like it's working that these military weapons that the military that
7:13 pm
arrives in ukraine seems to be working in the interest of the ukrainian forces. now of course we do not know if this is the reason why the ukrainian forces advance or whether it's just the fact that the russian forces rather being mobilized right now . the neighboring lu hands can do on your screen in the don bus region. but it should not be forgotten, even though that these villages towards the north and the north east. from the hard key from the city. santa ana recaptured and had been liberated by you. freedom forces, it shall not be forgotten, of course, that the civilians have been basically spending their life under ground for weeks and are now looking at was left from their homes. not to ignore the fact that they may be booby traps. they may be land mines scattered across a v. i area the streets where they are trying to look after what's left from their homes. the humanitarian tool is immense and we just do not know at this point how many casualties they are. how many people have been killed during this heavy bombardment at hockey region had to endure and still endures? by the way?
7:14 pm
because not every part of hockey region is under ukrainian control. and in fact, just yesterday, there was an attack on a yard of 8 base, very close to the city center of hockey, which is used to distribute aid. so even though russian forces have you drawn or could be re power from parts of hockey region, it does mean that the night may is completely over for the people in har keith. all right, and funny. just very briefly, how's the russian offensive in the east coming along? the or the picture is not as a easy to establish to say. so it's really unclear just who has the upper hand right now. there is heavy fighting ongoing in the 2nd largest city of the launch region is see what he done yet. and as a result, you just have to really see by the hour, really as this heavy fighting is ongoing, the offensive by the russian forces they call displaced the model and the counter offensive by the ukrainian forces. it certainly is
7:15 pm
a flash boy has ever been since 2014 the dumbass region. and it is something that ukrainian force is really focused on. they want to maintain a grip of at least a part of dom bus as this war rages on. i did earlier, chris bond and fanny for sure they're reporting for us from keith. thank you so much. funny. you're watching the don't use you again with the latest at the top of the hour. thanks for watching. ah ah no big hurry.
