our troops in the fighting has reached its maximum intensity. to date. mister william, mister chromebooks among my infant son wished him. 90 percent of the lawns, creegan is under russian occupation. its governess, as does have to last couple more. sure. the situation is very tense because the russians have sent all their forces to storm de la hansen region down the summer storm to capture towns and to bring the roads under their control. mister ha, but it is that, that they're attacking from different directions, gnostic. no, it's very hard, but we've been holding the defensive line on for 4 months now. most of useless shall de lush. despite the fact, while the enemy has suffered significant loss is the village. they keep pushing towards our defensive line, step by step with artillery shelling at the old storm for a dollar kenya mercer versus monkey. lance and danielle together make up the don bus were rushing back separatist control lodge parts of the territory. russian
forces have showed some 40 towns, a crust on bus as they battle to seize the entire region. so even as life and air pin and keep slowly returns to normal, else we're normality is a very long way off. and here's the da, the chorus on it. rebecca readers with an update on the situation in eastern ukraine. things are not looking good by all accounts with ukraine authorities even admitting that they are really struggling to maintain any kind of up a hand that they've actually lost the upper hand in the dumbass region. are the mer all of the, sorry, the governor rather of lu. hans has said that russians now control almost 95 percent of that region that's up from 90 percent of a from last week. so they are making progress. they are moving forward and the ukrainians are really struggling to even hold them and keep them back at this stage . you know, we're hearing reports for every one rocket or one artillery that's fine from the
ukrainian side. you've got 10 coming in the other direction. so, you know, it sort of gives you an indication of sort of the fear that the heaviness on the russian side they think of this is going to be a very decisive moment in the battle. you've got president zalinski and the foreign minister just singing out screaming, shouting from all weapons, they are really calling on the international community. this is almost 2 like we've also say renewed shelling in hockey. so things are really hating up in the east of the country. for back a writers for us there are to captured russian soldiers have pleaded guilty at the 2nd war crimes trial to be held in ukraine. they're facing sentences of up to 12 years for allegedly shelling civilian infrastructure. and the case is just one of thousands that ukrainian authorities are investigating and fresh evidence of war crimes is found every day. he, deep inside the forest lies in anonymous grief. whoever chose this place didn't want anyone to find it. 2 months after the end of the russian occupation here,
the body of a ukrainian man was on earth. his passport found here by the police say, the death of the 56 year old civilian is linked to the russian aggression. nothing unusual these days were horrible. we found many and we will find more because a lot of people are still missing. a lot of people died. a lot of people were buried for much of bought the rules, a quote from the victims daughter is on the scene. she tells us her father went missing on the 18th of march during the russian occupation. it's neither solutions . i only know you woke down of his house and didn't return more you. i think he went to feed the dog of the neighbor who had left. i didn't know where else he would have gone with a lot of sticky ways. which would have been so far, clues are limited as to what happened to her father. his passport shows red stains on it, possibly blood, boucher, hostile mill hairpin. these towns have become synonymous with russian war crimes.
within a 1000 people were killed in boucher alone. a neighbouring her pin. the cemetery has changed in appearance with hundreds of freshly dug graves to day streets and the area are lined with destroyed houses and shops all over town, reminders of horrific acts of violence like these cars attacked with weapons of war . so all the vehicles are see here are civilian vehicles that were used by people from boucher to try to flee from the russians and flee from the fighting. just like this vehicle over here. as we learned, it was struck in the back while trying to exit the town. it was hit by heavy machine gun fire and the bullets traveled through the entire car hitting in the back. next thing at the front and killing at least one person inside. one of more than 3000 war crimes that are now being investigated and the key of region alone, an arduous task. but authorities are making some gains. we know we have already
fixed that. so a 100 percent from russia on, in key region that were mentioned here in our church or, and when also was it? so they went from special forces from russian federation. they came here. we have their name surnames, also even their families the default. but with them being out of reach of ukrainian authorities, what are the prospects of bringing these men to justice? but it's where they couldn't visit any come true is a, have a possibility to be arrested. so anyway, you know that if somewhere they will come, they international court and international police officers and maybe always find all them and arrested. so we hope that they will find the punishment because they are guilty. so for fewer than 50 alleged russian war criminals remain ukrainian custody and police in the town of you've all the texas are facing criticism over the length of time it took for them to storm and elementary
school where he gunmen killed 19 children and 2 teachers. the shooter were shot dead at nearly an hour after he began his rampage. the massacre has once again raised the divisive issue of gun control in the united states. the town of valley is mourning the loss of their loved ones. $900.00 children and 2 teachers, $21.00 lies it were needlessly cut short. the title in the community is the latest in the us to be devastated by gun violence. the texas governor, great other beliefs, mental health and not access to guns is the real issue. we as a state, we are the society. neither do a better job with mental health. anybody who shoes somebody else has a mental health challenge period. we had we, as a government need to find a way to target that mental health challenge and do something about it.
democrats veto row was vying to be the next governor of texas in an upcoming election publicly confronted, correct, albert, during his press conference, he accused the republican of being responsible for the killings by liberalizing state gun most. oh, the question old you need to ask him. is why does he want violent criminals to be able to carry guns on our streets? go, go, ask him that he has not had the answer for any of this. and he gets by with this theater on calling it out. i came here to called out to stop this because if we don't stop it, it will continue to happen. the community is still trying to process what happened . i was at the school where it was so pre k and k 10 every morning you have to open their doors for them to get oh, can you see a list of i knew them. it's just really sad. so we have to go through this
i'm, i'm saddened by that i'm angry at our government for not doing more about, you know, gun control. but even as people across the u. s. and around the world express grief and sympathy. few believe that this will be the last such tragedy. oh, and the legendary american actor ray liotta, has died at the age of $67.00. the new jersey born actor got his big break playing ex, convict racing claire in 1986, a black comedy. something whiles, but he was probably most well known as a, as real life monster, henry hill, in martin scorsese's. good fellas where he played next to other big stars like robert de niro. and joe pesci, actress published as said leo to died in his sleep in the dominican republic, where he was filming a new movie called dangerous waters. and the world of electronic music
has lost one of its pioneers. andy fletcher, keyboardist for the british ban to patch mode has died at the age of 60. fletcher was a founding member of the band, which on performing in the late 19 seventies, helped popularized electronic music around the world with tracks like enjoy the silent and personal jesus to patch motives that they were shocked and filled with sadness at fletcher's passing, ah, and fans of the swedish super group abba are buzzing with excitement about the bands return to the stage on friday in london. oh, there is a catch. the group won't be there in the flesh, but instead will be represented by digital avatars or avatars. ah, this is a taste of what audience is an ab as upcoming virtual concerts can look forward to
holograms called avatars. seen here in their video still have faith in you. the rush for tickets for the 1st shows has been enormous. and the count down to the premier is on we are pushing boundaries and we have created something that people have never seen before. oh, the london concert hall was built, especially for the show. the avatars are an exact replica of the musicians. as they looked in the 1970s, after almost 6 years of development, at least one of the members has now gotten used to the sight of his younger self. ah, he is almost like someone else is me? yes. but he's also someone else. and when i see my avatar on,
on, on stage, it really becomes a mixture. it's as if i have kind of infused life into this guy that we see on the screen. the concert was recorded with 160 cameras over 5 weeks. the 23 songs were selected, including some from the new album. and although the musicians are not on stage in person, that doesn't mean they don't have stage fright. we don't know how the audience will react. i mean, they come there and they see us, but they know that the it's actually, it's not us. the bond is real. we real here but not on stage. whether it be like sort of applauding a painting or something. i don't know if the avatars are convincing and the rush for tickets continues. there could be concerts in the arena in london for years to come in then. mm.
