8:04 am
stopped the russian advance so far, keith says it needs more help from the west and as renewed its place for more heavy weapons. dw, correspond at nick conley is in central ukraine in the town of crop init, sky, nick, the fighting seems to be coming to a head in eastern ukraine, particularly seville bennett's. what a thing stand there now? well, definitely this battle for soda than that has been going on for weeks and many times before you've had metrics, but saying that now is the time now the last 2 days of ukrainian control of several of the nets and then we've seen reverses, unfortunately, ukrainians taking a bit more of the town center, moving out from the kind of industrial outskirts where they've been pushed back to . but it does seem that now this is the end, almost the end for ukrainian control on that bank of the river. and this was ukraine's last biggest outpost on the northern bank of the civically, the nets river, crucial defensive feature there. and with the news,
8:05 am
the russians have blown up as we bringing here in ukraine today to bridges leaving any one connection across the river of c, supplying those ukrainian forces on the other bank will be increasingly difficult if not impossible. and it looks like ukraine commanders might eventually now take decision to pull back, pull back to the other bank of the river, which is a high bank with kind of cliffs, which is more easily defendable and would allow ukraine basically cut its losses and to prevent even further human losses, especially situation where they're really having to weigh up every bit of artillery every bit of ammunition that they use because they're in such a weaker position compared to the russians in terms of their resources at their disposal. we've heard from ukrainian sources in last few days, the, basically their entire supply of pre war, soviet made ammunition is now more or less used up and all they are using now. all they have the disposal is either soviets, caliber themselves, the and utterly this come from eastern europe, from, from poland, from bulgaria, mother, nature, members, or now nato. a caliber weapons coming from the u. s. u k,
8:06 am
and others. so basically a very difficult situation now where you cranes, dead logistics are very, very difficult and crucial basically to them being able to hold on to where they are right now and on this. and you were just near the front lines in the south. i understand what's the situation there now were we were near the steve mc alive, which is basically the frontline city on the black sea coast support fort blocks because of that. russian naval blocked, located, and very near to had san, one of the biggest cities of ukraine. the russians have been occupying since early on in the war. and it's basically a city of hundreds, thousands people that is living within 2030 kilometers of the front line summer where you can always hear artillery in the background of people more, less go about their daily lives. and i've got used to, at the least, those are the people who've decided to stay. we went to see a farmer, someone who's suds come back to her fields in spite that shooting is part of the mines that they regularly find those fields. and someone who exports
8:07 am
a whole lot of grain around the world to people who are now really suffering from that ukraine ingrained being stuck in the port. so let's have a listen to what she had say, birdsong, and tractors. not the only sounds on india even of is 4000 actors. artillery far in the distance never really stops. but in a d and her team, a preoccupied with other things. like what i'm going to look at the suite, it's under fed, it's under loved that has been but that wasn't for want of trying on a d as but for most of the crew slowly growing season, she couldn't even get to her fields. they were a war zone. fighting is now at least 25 kilometers away. far enough from the d. n. her team to get back to feeding the world. the glare of the missile fly over our heads towards mc alive over there. we're in the fields, catches fire really easily with all the dry straw. if you do get
8:08 am
a direct hit, you could lose hector's to the flames. in a matter of minutes, this unexploded russian missile had dug its way a meter into the ground to some the ordinance of the russians left behind them. no sight landmines and countless shells. they also took a lot with them, from chainsaws to food, even cutlery. the deer is still tilting up the losses. this crops spray the farms, pride and joy that just been bought for more than a quarter 1000000 euros was destroyed before it could be used last night and they used cosette bombs. it turns the insides of equipment like this to mid zeal it. it's a must see that the spray tank whittled with holes with months of field work missed and much of her machinery either destroyed or shorter diesel. tedious as this is harvest, remotest at best alike. the harvest up behind these walls
8:09 am
with is a 2021, was a recorded across the ukraine with full grain storage units. almost everywhere. much of the bumper crop hadn't even reached world markets when war broke out in late february. that's because many farmers keep their grain back until prices are highest during the winter months. we get it from the t his case and plus thousands of tons us more. so the 1st of this is how this bali is just 10 days away from the hilton most homes here. i will barely have any way to put it what that is. the grain used to be like gold. he could always salad easily. whatever you wanted. this is the 1st time ever. we can't get it off our hands. lloyd, then you cranes. paul slowly shut, but also mind la deal with russia to reopen. not in the cards. alternatives from river barges to rail freight, a desperately being sought. but none of them come close to even matching the capacity and price of transport by sea. even when use have been found trucks now
8:10 am
face weeks, long tail box to unload the now grain from this form of thousands. like if you go know it's a situation is left, the dia struggling to pay her work is wages. at the same time, the world desperately wait for the greens she produces, but at least she still producing it all. and when the ports of entry do reopen, they'll be a crop to sell. in spite of mines in the soil and shells overhead stick over 20000000 tons of grain, i understand our stock in ukraine because of the war. this is fueling peers, a global food crisis. what efforts are being made to unblock exports that much needed? great. well exact in those 20000000, i'll just lost his harvest. and we heard that the next topic is just a couple of weeks away. so those, some of the speakers could go up very fast, this talk of using the railways of sending trucks and trying to make the customs
8:11 am
processing easier to send those to the board as much quicker. but if you look at the sums they are just in comparable to basically what has been happening the past by the ports, the capacity just is a factor of 10, in some cases less and it'll be a lot more expensive. so yes, some grain is getting through, but not on a scale is really gonna put prices down and enable people who eat this, consumed this ukrainian grain, ukrainian, sunflower, seed oil around the world, basically from west africa to asia and most of europe. those prices are not going to go anywhere in a hurry until you transport to reopened. and until russia basically ends this war, because as it is now, ukraine has no trust that if it opens its sports, if it takes those minds away, the russians would take advantage of that. and what use that to invade is like me to live in odessa. so for now, i think people around the world can have to wait for this ukrainian food was it's basically not going anywhere, even though there are attempts to try and get it out at least in some quantities. nick, thanks so much for your reporting. d w's. nick connelly, they're in central ukraine. some other world news now
