3:00 pm
ah, ah ah ah, this is the w news live from berlin. b r o style sage has ended. russia says it has captured nearly 300 ukrainian soldiers pulled up in the steel mill. the troops have been already taken to the territory held by russian forces where moscow says they'll be given medical treatment. craniums have been trapped in the still works for weeks. also on the program, we meet the sister of one of the fighters in the hours of regiment in mario paul.
3:01 pm
we're still waiting for news of her brother and hear about the regiments controversial past. and for the 1st time since the start of the pandemic, the con film festival is back without restriction. first time to buckle up and listen to a correspondence saying, on this year's big screen ah, i'm gabels has thanks for joining us. more than 250 ukranian soldiers have surrendered after being hold up in the still works in the southern city of mario or for weeks, it ends the longest siege of the war so far then puts rush on for control off that key city wounded troops have been taken from our you puerto hospital in the russian controlled town of noble zakowski in the far east. some 200 others were transferred
3:02 pm
north to all their nefco in russian back to sub purchased territory. several 100 ukrainian soldiers could still be inside the eyes of style steel plant. keith says it wants to get them out alive, whom i am on. that usually does. we hope to save the lives of our boys, that among them a heavily wounded they have been treated obama. i 12 on the line ukraine needs. it's ukranian here is alive. this is our principal is logical to me in simple venmo to hopes of the work continues to bring our boys home, and it requires delicacy and time just in keith. many ukrainians are skeptical about russia's pledge to treat ukrainian soldiers in line with international norms . during ciocca, nothing good will come of it. we don't know how they will be treated. actually we do know what we have already seen in boucher, a pin on the other towns. injuries respond will remember,
3:03 pm
it probably isn't very good if and, but if there's no way the way the soldiers can be saved later, russian backed separatist have released this video, which they say shows them patrolling. the as of style still works on tuesday. it like the rest of mar, you pull, is largely in ruins. the cities loss is a major symbolic blow for ukraine. and one that came at a heavy price for both sides dw correspondence on. if a child has been covering this story for us and you crying early, and i also, if the ukrainian soldiers who have been evacuated will eventually be part of a prisoner swap with russia. well, that prisoners swab gearhart didn't start yet. what did start have a debate here in ukraine over whether this is or even going to start whether you can trust russia that these ukranian soldiers who are now, as you say,
3:04 pm
on the russian control territory, whether they will make it too safe, ukrainian control territory or not in fact the people here are really looking at russia as lawmakers in moscow right now. a talking about these i as a freshman soldiers as criminals, as nationalists, as people who basically, quote, do not deserve to leave. now this is all of course, in the, in the context of the fact that russia attacked and invaded ukraine on february 24th under the pretext to then the nazi fi ukraine and the see the as of regiment as a nazi unit. now if you look back and zoom in on the history of the as of regiment, it did start as a volunteer militia harboring ultra national fuse. well, the president lansky was asked over and over about the regiment he made clear that the group has been reformed away from that political past. and it actually is a military coup, part of the national guard. and people should look at these people as heroes. the question really is whether they're going to you, i'll stay alive, remain alive,
3:05 pm
be it in the other stuff, the open, the was still inside and the ones have been evacuated to this russian control territories. now we heard earlier report that not all soldiers were able to leave the steel plot. what's happening to those ones left behind. so basically the crumbling, sad to put in has guarantee that every one who surrenders is going to be treated according to international law. which leaves the question open. what about those who did not surrender yet? and this is exactly also a question that the sister of one of the soldiers that we have spoken to is wondering about, as she does not know about the fate of her brother who has been hold up in that as of south steel plan for weeks. let's have a look at the report. for natalia, the war in ukraine has been a time of intense worry and reflection. yes, she's thinking a launch about her younger brother these days at them. why, but this is my brother artem at school when he was 8 or 9 o'clock voice and it
3:06 pm
natalia recalls a very normal charge with growing up in michel live in southern ukraine. i. i always considered art him to be a creative person and that he would go down a more creative path. i never thought he'd become a soldier. but one the war and don't boss began in 2014. natalia says, our tone changed. van is now shore on a ship. he knew that sooner or later the aggressor will bring war to our country. and he knew that he needed to prepare national, greenly, a. russ does not ship that. i bought the lot. this said, our to him was 26, joined the angel fragment a few years ago. it was formed as a volunteer militia group, and later became part of the national guard. he still hold up here in the as of style steel plant. the last holdout of ukraine's forces in the port city of mar, you pull. the regiment released these pictures displaying the horrible conditions. some of the fighters are in put in, accuses the unit of being not cease. he's justified his invasion by claiming that
3:07 pm
ukraine needs, in his words, the nazi fi inc, which has drawn a backlash globally. your and key. the unit is seen as heroes. billboards have sprung up, supporting the soldiers. yes, this is i am expressing huge gratitude for them for standing for us and for our ukraine, nestle. then johan was looking for peer 10, as for every russian ever ukrainian is radical. but we only want to live on our own, and we strive to speak our own language. and every, as of soldier is a ukrainian wasn't as o t o green. because leslie, co chair researchers, right when groups, he says it's correct that the founder, suppose op harbored neo nazi views. but in this, that's changed now for all those guys who were interested in politics more than in a military action. they gone from their bodily on and reads them and after a 1st several months of it's existing in 2014,
3:08 pm
natalia doesn't want to get into ourselves controversial past. she's more worried for her brother artem norwood so on his so here he was texting me. that he's alive, he has room and that's it. he writes very short messages. unfortunately, there's room holding on to signs of life and hoping her brother will return alive. now, since you filmed her with natalia funny the have you had an update from her? has she heard from her brother she basically says she wants to make sure she gets out a liar from that as of style steel plant. she still believes he's inside and he's that she says she is going to turn to the pope for help. the w correspondent, fun if a child, thanks. well, the w's of russia analyst constantly exit. has this take on the evacuation of ukrainian troops from the to plant, and whether it actually is a real victory for russia, evidence,
3:09 pm
or circles. each side will play up its own narrative guard, it's an information will be real hot war and of course, there are good, good to played and the surrender of books. frankly speaking, i think about the ukrainian gradient leadership, showing the 1st and foremost from the lives of their soldiers, a, an important message to, to the population and to the on. and secondly, some countries have accused, threatens and ask you recently of excessive belligerence and desire to recapture. ringback captured russian characters now he showing that he is not adverse to him in humanitarian considerations, that he's putting people to like a priority. so also, i think, and that's an important thing defending as of style as to what was in many ways if you try to exercise the cities mostly on the russian control. so i think this all
3:10 pm
works towards the decision. now in your view, how likely is it that a prisoner is changed between russia and ukraine will happen, and that the as of style evacuation will be brought back to your crime? well, this totally depends on the russians. and the, just before we went on a, i read a dispatch from the so called russian duma. so we'll probably talk in parliament where deputy is already saying we need to exclude all fighters from the exchange scheme because they are not that was mentioned before. so it is totally, i think it is discretion and i suppose that at the same time i suppose that people in clear understand it and probably will be exchanging such russians that the credit would really like to swap also why does multiple fighters for them . now, what does all this me now for the direction of the war now that russia has full
3:11 pm
control of mario, paul, how important is this for russia? look at just that same 4 weeks ago. have said that this is a very important point. it's not a breaking point. so russia, but i think that this is not so no, all russian russians had captured the city that is already pretty much there. the surrender. all the other style fighters is just more or less a symbol. but at the same time, if you look at russian offensive elsewhere, it's towing russian forces are being pushed back to the russian border in harko region hockey. so i suppose that in overall picture, the capture material today is probably much less important than it would have been because it doesn't look now the twin will be capable to continue along the southern rim of the grain and cut it off from the black sea. so to some extent, it is
3:12 pm
a technical success, no doubt about it, but it's not as overwhelming as it would have looked $56.00 weeks ago. unless consulting the egg that talk to us from the video. thank you very much. thank you. ukraine's president laudermill zalinski has spoken with german chancellor, all of shots following strained relations between the 2 leaders. lensky tweeted, the pair had discussed the situation on the front line and further sanctions on russia. he added that he appreciated the support of germany on defense matters, as well as its backing of ukrainian accession to the european union. a diplomatic spat erupted after german president for the stine, by, i was told he was not welcome and keith present. lensky later invited both the president asked chancellor shorts to you. right. so is this phone call a good sign then w correspondent? benjamin are various gruber has more on that. let's write it is a good sign that they have this regular phone calls,
3:13 pm
and that's also what the press release of the german government set that they have a this a kind of talks to talk about the military and also about the humanitarian. a situation in ukraine with the german part stressed is that the only way to end this conflict is an immediate end to the fighting in a withdrawal of all the russian troops that are currently in ukraine. both lead us also agreed to continue the efforts to see how germany can continue supporting a ukrainian that will continue with this dialogue on almost weekly basis basis. now ukrainian german relations have been somewhat strained recently. is this now a sign of an easy intentions between the 2 leaders or it wasn't as bad as serious in the 1st place? it is indeed a good sign, but not only if we'll look at this, this telephone call that they had in the morning. but if we rather look at what both foreign ministers it did last week, because both of them visited,
3:14 pm
the other country were german foreign minister bab visiting keith meeting president lensky. she also visited the mass graves and a boucher and the ukranian counterpart collab, who was in germany who was here in berlin. he met with government officials, he met with officials of the a position as well. and he also attended the d 7 foreign ministers meeting in no than germany. so that's definitely a good sign that the both relationships between both countries are on a good way. but now of course, the interesting question is, if either german president, frankfurt, stein my, all the german chancellor will go to ukraine will visit key. that's been a question that all of charlotte has been dodging. yesterday evening. he was a part of a talk show where they ask him again, will you go to ukraine? will he go to keith? but he said, i will not join this group of people who just quickly go to ukraine, go the for a photo opportunity and then go back and he was impressed if he is not aware of the symbolism of this picture as if he was actually going to travel there,
3:15 pm
meeting so lensky, something that he denied. but that, of course remains the big question here. if, if the chancellor or the president, the german president of the chancellor, will go to ukraine any time soon? good of use benjamin of ours gruber. thank you very much. time now to have a quick look at some of the other stories. sweden's, a foreign minister, and linda has signed her country's official native natal application at the foreign ministry in stock on both sweden and finland are seeking to join the alliance of the russia invasion of ukraine. finland's parliament on tuesday also proved its application with an overwhelming majority of classes have erupted in libya. after 40 basheba, the countries parliamentary, appointed prime minister, attempted to enter the capital. tripoli e later withdrew from the city, citing the safety of civilians after violence had broken out. 2 rival administrations are vying for par following the end of the civil war. 2 years ago.
