they were trying to address techies concerns. the whole aaliyah's assa nato allies . we will commit to turkey security, just as turkey will commit to olive security. we take terrorism seriously. we condemn terrorism in all its forms, and we are actively engaged in combating it. we are open to discussing all the concerns. turkey may have other nato nations competing. the turkeys reservations will be over come, but for now, at least it looks like it may be some months before sweden and finland can take part in these baltic drills as nato allies. let's take a closer look at nato's potential nordic enlargement with jonathan cats. he's a senior fellow at the german marshall fund and joins us from washington. welcome to d. w. what is needed to shift turkeys opposition to the finish and swedish applications?
yeah, i sure i share the belief that, that, that these, the objections the tricky is put in place can be overcome. and of course, turkey has experience terrorism and loss of life. the p k. k. terrace organization is listed as the chair organization in the united states and elsewhere . so there's, there's some legitimate concerns in turkey side about is security concerns. and so it's raising them right now. you've heard leaders in both sweden and finland. both say that they will respond. there's diplomatic efforts under way to engage and so on one hand that process is taking place. the most important thing is that this doesn't become for mr. eric one, a political football for him domestically given his poor standing and potential for upcoming elections. and so we want to take this out of turkey's politics. let's put
it back into the important security. and right now we have the most furious security situation in europe, in decades, finland and sweden right there. i need the support to move forward as quickly as possible, as president biden said today. and so let's hope that diplomacy works in this move forward. jonathan, how important is joe biden's show support to sweden and finland. this is, this is critical. and of course, a year ago today, we would have never have thought that that sweden and finland would be moving in this direction. the entire effort and present abide in these play such an important role is really highlight the importance of the transfer of the community today to address mr. putin's war in ukraine, the by an administration has been the lead on with partners and allies. and so having to present support, send a strong message to all nato members and including the us senate,
which is going to have to vote on this. this next step is to bring these to countries and along with other parliament and other activities across native membership. so this is a real big, important jumpstart, and that's why you saw the president with the prime minister and president today, talking about moving forward, moving quickly, membership and nato. now, you said moving quickly, now it can take years for a country to join nato. how long do you expect the process to take for sweden and finland? well, the expectation in the united states, what i understand is that they're going to try to move this as quickly as possible . hopefully before august. if not, then in september. so i can talk about the u. s. u. s. senate approach, of course, senators have their own mind and how they want to do this. but we already see strong signal to support both from republicans and democrats in washington to move this forward. then each need a member state has their own process and the one,
the one simply like that we see right now is what you raised earlier, which is jerky. you've got a, you know, address these issues right now and move forward. but i don't see any stumbling blocks across the nato allies that we couldn't see this move forward quickly, but it's hard to tell what each government is going to do. this is all being laid out right now for the jonathan katz from the german marshall fund. thank you. thank you. hundreds of ukrainian soldiers are facing an uncertain future after surrendering to russian forces in the port of matthew pal. moscow says most have been sent to a prison camp in eastern ukraine, controlled by russia. cave hopes to get the soldiers back in a prisoner swap. but moscow has threatened to put some of them on trial. soldiers surrender to an unknown fate. this footage, released by the russian defense ministry, shows ukrainian soldiers laying down their arms after weeks under siege at the as

government and keith is hoping to exchange the soldiers for captured russian troops . but pro russian authorities in ukraine's east have suggested that some could be put on trial. while in moscow hotline, lawmakers, a demanding that captured ukrainians, face the wrath of russian justice. all of which means that the fate of the as of style soldiers remains far from certain. let's take a look at some other developments now in the war in ukraine. the u. s. senate has overwhelmingly approved nearly $40000000000.00 in aid for ukraine. the emergency package includes military, economic and humanitarian assistance. the decision came as the u. s. authorized the shipment to ukraine of another $100000000.00 worth of weapons and equipment from pentagon stocks, with the people of ukraine. german chancellor, olaf shoulds says ukraine's allies will not accept a peace dictated by russian president vladimir addressing german law makers ahead

a patient. during the course of their admission, they were identified as a possible monkey pox suspect. and this was really unusual because the patient had no travel history, no exposure to animals, that would be known to be reservoirs. however, the team thinking about the patient and hearing a just over the weekend of and some of the cases, the united kingdom thought more broadly about the patient's diagnosis. doctors and now working to establish whether the infection is connected to small outbreaks currently being seen in europe. italy in sweden have become the latest countries to confirm cases following britain, portugal and spain. authorities say they're monitoring the outbreak closely. it's not likely that it will generate a significant transmission, but we cannot rule it out. we have to be very careful with that. we're monkey pox is similar to humans. smallpox, though milder. most people recover from it and
a few weeks. symptoms include fever and headache, feeling tired and swollen glands. the viruses usually transferred through close bodily contact or bodily fluids. while the world health organization says the general public should be aware of unusual skin rashes. expert stress, there is no need for alarm. it can then spread from person to person, but it's not very efficient at transmitting. and so what we normally see is maybe one or 2 people get infected from that case and then it dives out because it's not very infectious within human population. while authority stressed of the risk to the general public is lower than urging any suspected cases to self isolate immediately. in football and after i'm frank for it's thrilling
