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. so are you doing? russia launched fresh ground and air attacks in the eastern doughnuts province aiming to deplete ukrainian forces and destroy their fortified positions. the russian military seems to have an inexhaustible supply of machinery and men. president philadelphia, zelinski 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. steel works are asking china to help negotiate an evacuation of the wounded dumb objective ins he not founded what goes on. there is no longer a war, murders are taking place there, but you can see hundreds of wounded with no limbs and no anesthetics but
11:04 am
a divine. while new bombardments inflict new wounds on already wounded fighters when they, they're exhausted. and just below the line of life, we want them to be rescued. mac watch him are away equally up to vala, but he, she said that for the fighters, trapped inside the steel works, surrendering is not an option. as she believes the russians would execute any captured members of the us off regiment. foreign ministers from nato countries are making here in berlin for talks dominated by the russian invasion of ukraine. ministers will also be discussing proposals by sweden and finland to join the defense alliance. public opinion in the 2 nordic countries has shifted in favor of joining following the russian invasion. russia has warned neighboring finland, that becoming part of nato would be a mistake. i remember turkey may also be against sweden and finland. membership in the kisses, both countries of backing kurdish militants that it says are terrorists for others
11:05 am
in the alliance. their membership is a no brainer. the deputies, terry schultz has this report. 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 finland's nato ambassador, close caught on him at the building where his mission is located for now after russian aggression against ukraine. so our security environment in, in europe and also in northern your europe. it has changed or it's now more insecure. an i think this, this move or to increase our corporation and become member of, or nato is the right step. the alliance is 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,
11:06 am
these new nordic members would feel much more important gaps than those sweeten thing. land bring difference assets to nato. finland famously brings the ability to guard a very lat long land. with russia, sweden brains, a 500 year old navy, and a navy that is among the largest in the baltic sea where we should remember. nathan doesn't have very many large neighbors, excepting the 2 country should be a no brainer for nato says. former finish prime minister alexander stood that morning to compatible the most nato member states themselves like finland. as an example, we're always spent about 2 percent of our g, d, p on a military expenditure. we have reserves with 900000. we can mobilize 280000 quickly during the war time. we have a $62.00 f eighteens just bought to $64.00 f, $35.00, and indeed nato secretary general yen stilton burn has said this would be
11:07 am
a record fast accession process. once the 2 governments formerly confirmed they wanted join, though it will still take months for 30 nato governments stamps of approval even ahead of their formal applications. finland and sweden or receiving pledges from allies and defensive back up against possible russian retaliation. and they'll be providing security as well. i think finland is already protecting the northern flank of the alliance under, with nato membership, that would be even more effective. maybe we have more visibility and under more information, more experience on. oh, what, what does 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. they'd have these brussels bureau chief alexander phenomena is following the story for us. i asked her earlier today how likely nato membership,
11:08 am
the sweden and finland are given turkeys, reluctance on that question. always had a chance here to speak with many foreign ministers. and i have to say that most of them were very optimistic and, and confident that turkey will come around, that they will not undermine the alliances unity and will not eventually blocker or keep, or they will drop their opposition to sweden and finland joining the alliance. and some of them indicated that turkey might have domestic reasons or some bilateral issues with some allies. there are rumors that the reason for turkey's objection could be could be restrictions on weapons deliveries, to the country. the u. s. s. we know also imposed sanctions on turkey after the country decided to buy russian made or a defense systems. so all of this is sort of on the table,
11:09 am
but we have to say that most minister is here. we're very optimistic that in the answer, at the accession process for sweden and finland should they declare officially that they want to join the alliance will be quick and smooth. blood couldn't nightmare has long been nato expansion. how serious of finland, and indeed nato taking russian threats of retaliation to this move. well, i think that's any threats coming out south russia are being taking seriously by nato. and of course by if finland as well as we know, as he just mentioned, russia has about what they call and military and technically retaliation. we know that they are threatening to move more troops towards their border, which finland, which is a very long, 1300 kilometers at it could be cyber attacks. and they
11:10 am
have already announced to suspend deliveries of electricity to finland. that is, however, something that villain can deal with, and they have a new power, a nuclear power plant to have wind energy. so they're not very concerned about that . and the thinking here is also that, you know, russia is threatening to retaliate. however, russia have suffered huge losses in ukraine and actually their armies busy there. that was data please brussels bureau chief alexandra phenomena or a tougher sport and settle. i saw a battle for the blunders league as final champions league spot fryeburg needed to win against live, accusing, bought levy kissane's, ezekiel clots. yas fire the long rains rocket into an empty net in the final seconds of the match to secure a 21 victory and dash fry books hopes that left leipzig in control of the coveted 4th place position. and i scored an equalizer against villa filled in the 90th
