russian oil. but with exemptions for hungary and others. each commission presidential de la funder line, still presented the water down deal as a success. these sanctions are biting heart and are really, are destroying and that's the, the goal on the basis their financial basis of putting, leading this war and hitting heart the russian economy, the ear plans to cut only russian oil that's transported by c, hungary, slovakia, and the czech republic can continue to receive oil by pipeline for now. according to you, officials, in total 90 percent of fresh an oil imports, the block will stop by year's end. even those countries that would have liked to see as strict, you're embargo say it was most important to show unity. i was positively surprised
because our, when we went into the room and the signs were not that great, but everybody was very constructive. those expect that huge, a cat are fresh and gas as a next step, are likely to be disappointed. though my gum bul, it is lot easier to compensate for russian oil. we managed to solve technical problems with victor alba, the gas, but gas is a different story. that's why gas embargo won't be part of the next sanctions package came to amazon soaring energy prices all over the blob are also addressed, as well as global food shortages. jew as to the war in ukraine, the on board don't produce the responsibility for all the dangers that we are facing. like clearly with russia and it's president, it will be to speak. that's why it's so important that we reinforce our efforts to make sure grain can be exported from ukraine. replacing e leaders will gather again in june. on this occasion, ukraine switched to join the european union is likely to top. the agenda
i was going across to did up in brussels correspondent max sander. i'm actually just heard your commission president fund a lion in the report saying that the oil embargo will destroy the financial basis of futons war in ukraine. how hard will this really hit a russian economy? right, so the 6 package of sanctions in particular is all and burger has the potential to deal a severe blow to the russian economy. where we're talking about 90 percent less oil going into the european union. and this could transit into 25 percent less revenue in the russian budget, according to some experts. so a huge chunk of money. now this is because we're not just talking about oil, but also petroleum products or a refined products. we're talking about diesel. we're talking about a petrol, cosmetic sir production of that and an asphalt in various other, other in other areas. so industry, these industries and russia will,
are all targeted by the sanctions and some of them are likely to be brought to their knees. ok, so this next round of sanctions, clearly tough on russia, about how tough can they potentially be for the e u. economy. will there be a substantial price to pay they're going to hurt the you economy. there's no, no, no doubt. and then this is also one of the reasons why this took so long, and this is also why one of the reasons probably why hungary, i did not partaken the final or agreement and install the talks for so long that the prices the prices of oil have already gone up on there, it's very sensitive. and just to give you one of the examples on just an example of one of the member states, a germany has committed to phasing out oil coming from the russian pipeline by the end of the year. but still germany has refineries in the country that need to work with rational that need need to be supplied. there are
a lot of jobs connected to it. so now there were discussions on whether or not you were to put these companies under state control and where to get the, the alternative oil from. so every each and every member state apart from cost is also dealing with logistical issues here. so the old ann at big news, but not the only topic on the agenda in brussels to day. and that's what else came out of busy you summit. so various other topics were discussed. one very important topic here is his food security. now ukraine is also dubbed the bread basket of europe. um it's one of the biggest producers of grain in the entire world. the biggest one of the biggest exporters, and due to the warn ukraine grain is stuck there. so we're talking about 20000000 tons that are stuck in the ports of ukraine at the moment because they're blocked by the russian military. now the, you discussed on how to help with that situation. ok, because a lot of the screen goes to some of the poorest countries or in the world, some of the poorest countries in africa. and then malise,
a lot of it goes to goes to humanitarian aid also. so what the european union has been discussing now is implementing green lanes, trying to bring out this grain through the u on rail, on land, not through the ship, what's bringing them to see ports in countries in the you and then putting them back in the supply chain there, and so the potential for huge international repercussions there. max, stand therefore, as in brussels, thanks very much for that. as go to the situation in ukraine and the governor of lou, hans can eastern ukraine as russian forces now control most of the city of civil road and ask one relief organization estimates. as many as 12000 civilians are trapped without food and power unable to flee because of the heavy fighting. russia is trying to seize the entire don bass region, already partially in separatist hands since 2014. the sound of artillery echoes across the dawn bass. russian forces in sunny fields shelling already shattered
towns and cities before moving troops in for combat. the dogs in london budget though says in general, the situation and the don bass remains extremely difficult, but the russian army is trying to gather a superior force to put more and more pressure on our defenders. them with the maximum combat power of their army. we will put those nasty army richie. russia is pushing to seize the entire eastern region of don bass, which has already been partially in the hands of pro russian separatists since 2014 . so vero done yet has seen widespread destruction, similar to what happened in the port city of barrier pole but ukrainian forces have had some small successes elsewhere in the east. more than a 1000 civilians were evacuated from russian controlled towns around hockey id than the most. isn't emma?
there's no power within of no phone service. no water. the echo, it's hard with guns. i can't contact my children. like my oldest daughter, there's no work and no money was seen. it isn't an occupation regime is being established and they've introduced the ruble prices of changed the force people to sign agreement saying they'll cooperate yet. vienna is, i hope i believe that i will return home to where i'm from and that it will be a part of ukraine up with that because i don't want to live under occupation. i just don't want to refer you as the russian onslaught grind song. the exodus continues. people fleeing the east with whatever they can carry, leaving behind homes, reduced to rubble and bodies buried hastily before leaving. if more let him bring indeed, only a correspondent, mateus boiling guy,
who joins us now from the keith. much as it seems like russia is making limited, but steady progress. can you give us the latest developments from a battle ground? yes, so a russia seems to have concentrated most of its efforts on the city of sierra donetta similar than it used to be the administrative center off the new hands green of those parts of the lawns. regionally. we're still controlled by ukraine. that's, that was about 2 thirds before the war of this region. the rest was controlled by russian backed, so called separatist. but it's now been reduced to 5 percent, which is really the city itself and the neighboring city of listed chance can we are hearing that we've been hearing for days that they have entered the city. and that fighting has had been happening in the streets of cecilia and asking now are the news point to that they are might already be in control of a huge part of the city and the city might fall soon. that would be an important
symbolic gain for russia would not be a breakthrough, because from there it will be very difficult for them to advance further. there's a river and then a hill. and on top of that hill, i ukrainian position so it will be difficult for them. it's not their breakthrough, but it will be a symbolic game. and you have personally just spent 10 days at the front line in the dumbass region. what have you witnessed there? and what have civilians told you? yeah, we have been to the sister city among either is our 1st or the next the least chance on the other side of that river that i've just talked about. and the situation is quite diet, it's not as bad as and so for the next, but still it's very difficult to escape the city. now the roads that lead there have been under constant fire. so some of them were almost impossible to pass through. and evacuations were still happening when we were there, but they would become more and more difficult. and yesterday,
a french journalist was killed while he was traveling reporting on one of these evacuations. he was killed when one of these buses that bring people out. they were armoured buses, ometer trucks, better to say was shelled. so as we understand evacuations have now been halted. many people who were there did not want to leave. that's also something we have to say. many especially older people. there were saying whatever will come we'll come, i was born here, i will die here, things like that. and they were afraid to travel somewhere where they don't know what expects them having no money and not being able to support themselves, not knowing in what situation they will be in whether they will get aid. there is aid for refugees, but they didn't trust the situation and they thought it would be better to stay and wait out. given those dire circumstances, how is the morale remaining among ukrainian soldiers who are continuing to fight?
we've spoken to some of them and all of them have said that the situation is very tough. there's huge pressure on them. russia is really trying to push them back with everything they have. that means a lot of artillery. we have heard from the president last week in one of the rare disclosures of ukrainian losses, that they are losing 50 to 100 soldiers a day. and that of course, does take its toll on the morale of, of the soldiers. but most of them have said that nothing is decided yet, and if the weapons that the west has promised and also some of them have already been delivered. if they will be able to use all of these, they have a chance to push back the russians to stop them at least. and what all of them have said, and that was since the beginning of the war, they have said, well, even if things don't go well, we are on our soil. we are defending some thing that we will lose of otherwise our morale will always be higher than the then then the other side because they have
invaded us and we have no choice but to defend us. that's what many of them say. and although there is some kind of gloom, the fighting spirit with those we talked to was still there, it'll be a correspondent, much as buying a for us and key. thank you so much for reporting rushes attempt to capture ukraine's capital keith at the start of the war, ended in failure. now many of these residents worried moscow may be preparing for a 2nd assault, which could be even more brutal. t w's. rebecca driggers met up with a group of civilians getting ready to defend their homes as best they can. hello, oh, preparing for a 2nd onslaught. when russia tried to storm keith, these residents were on the back foot like katya, who felt helpless to defend herself. and her city water made me want to
learn this even more as after everything, all the work crime started to get out. you know, i want to have an opportunity to protect myself. the actor says she owes everything to those who fought when she felt she could not. the only thing that allows me to do that, you know, allows me to leave to choose life. is that somebody is choosing death like right in the same moment. so they are choosing death for me to leave, you know, and that's just terrible because it's my people i know with fees growing that moscow, emboldened by gains in the east, could launch another attempt at taking the capital. these people say they won't be caught off guard again. volunteer instructor uri guides them through the basics. since the war broke out, hundreds of people have signed out to courses like this one. so many wanted to
assist in the war if it, but didn't have the skills for combat. of course they are not yet soldiers completely, but at least for we have some some knowledge of the experience experience they feel they need for people here. the threat is existential was same, will the, it is we need to be prepared for everything was the threat of russians returning will remain with me until the end of my life able to sleep sounds. let's get that. there's always a chance. russians will come back, but according to the attitude i see from my friends, i don't think they stand a chance here. it's not a recent build up of belarus in troops. if ukraine's northern border has only added fuel to fears of another attack, we support they will vicar were several thousands of troops or, or was, or not as a border there waiting for some border rule. be this order, given redondo, what we mazda read it. if there is to be an x time,
cartier says she will definitely fight. she and her fellow classmates fear a 2nd attempt on the capital could be even more brutal and will take an even bigger ref it to defeat. and orthodox rabbis from around the world have gathered this week in the german city of munich, around 250 rabbis are considering how to counter antisemitism and uphold religious freedom. ukraine is also on the agenda. thousands of ukrainian jews have fled the war to find refuge in other european countries. many russian jews have also left their homelands. let he abuse hands of grant spoke to pink hassan goldschmidt, president of the conference of european rabbi's chief rabbi, go to mid term. you are the chief rabbi of moscow now that there is war and you cram. how has that affected life in russia in moscow? how is it affected life in the jewish community?
and in russia it has affected everybody like everyone else, and a very significant part of the jewish community has left russia. and another significant part is thinking about it. in ukraine itself, there is a very large jewish community and many of the people, many of the jews from that community have fled the country and have come west. how has the jewish community reactor to that? the way that the jewish communities and eastern europe and central europe have opened their doors and taken in refugees from the jewish community as a remarkable achievement. obviously these people are refugees say do not want to stay where they are them. if they want to return to the home country, how can we reach that point? what can be done? to end the situation, we need peace and we pray for peace on a daily basis. and can religious leaders play a role? what? what role can you play?
we pray recall for peace, and we help those who were affected by this, by this war. you're one of the most senior rabbis in europe. and we are meeting here and you are meeting here with hundreds of rabbis in munich. what is the signal you are trying to send by having this meeting here in munich? the symbolism is very important. munich has been the place where historically the biggest wave in the history of anti semitism started crystal enough of ice well enough to splendid or out from about house music. and as the pavilion government has invited us to hold this conference for the 1st time in the history that the general assembly of the conference you've been rabbis has its has its assembly here in of
