polt steel works just weeks ago. in keith, the defense ministry described the difficulty of the current situation in the east toil hooked up. the 2nd phase of the full scale invasion of russia continues. the enemy continues to add numbers and equipment and artillery. the ukrainian defense forces are actively fighting and inflicting high losses on the enemy. the russian ministry of defense released footage, claiming to show their troops opening fire on ukrainian militants. their spokesperson said they had hit important targets. was a glitch that will give them in the dough nets. people's republic, high precision air launched missiles destroyed a large number of weapons and military equipment delivered to the ukrainian nationalists, including weapons from the u. s. and european countries. sanchez lee is the for your business. from back in viet denounced the constant shelling and exchange of
10:04 pm
fire rages on with no end in sight and old bridges out of the city cut join. now by you're a sock. he's an advisor to the ukrainian defense minister and joins me now from keith. good to have you with us, sir. we just heard in that report. i'm from vill, ukrainian defense ministry. you are outgunned and you are outmanned. is don bus last good evening and thank you for inviting me on the bus is not lost. the fighting continues is very kind of fighting. it is very dynamic fighting. and of course we are out number. and of course, the russian aggressor has periodic to when it comes to have actually literally bought rush in the cities and villages a region as well as the mass fusion was if you to destroy them.
10:05 pm
but for the time being your credit on forces continue to control a part of the yes and of course you're pregnant forces are in other parts of the boston. well, but given the scene there, as you've described the intense fighting, there must be immense civilian suffering. we're seeing this in the images. does ukraine have a plan to try to save and prevent some of the civilian suffering? we've seen other places in ukraine from happening again in survey or don't ask for your prey in human life has always been a top priority. and of course, we are doing everything we can to alleviate suffering and to help our peaceful citizens in those areas which are now struck by the aggressor. at the same time, ukraine has to defend itself. we cannot give our land to the
10:06 pm
aggressor without resistance. so from this perspective, we will continue. this is what we have said from the very 1st day of this aggressive war against ukraine. we have a constitutional duty to defend our territory to restore our thorough integrity. and the only thing that we need now actually is more heavy weaponry from our international partners. because if we receive it on time, there will be less suffering had we received it before. that would have been less offering australians as well because we would be able to repel the russian and rest of the more efficiently and would not allow russian aggressor who is shooting missiles at residential areas destroying peaceful vintages. so the suffering is brought on ukraine by the russian aggressor. let's talk
10:07 pm
a little bit more about the supplies and the weapons from your western partners. because there's some confusion here in germany about just what kind of weapons and how many and how quickly they're getting to you in ukraine, from your perspective. what kind of, what is the situation of the supply of weapons to your soldiers on the front? every single item that ukrainian armed forces received from our international partners as military assistance goes straight to the battle field and efficiently used on the battle. we have shown time and again that ukrainian soldiers reading or is a learning very fast to use these new types of weaponry and they are using it very efficiently to protect credit. now our minister of defense, mr. electrical has already said a few days ago, over 150, for example, of the 150. and the canons of $15050.00 caliber already deploy at the front
10:08 pm
line. those that we have received from the west and are being used very efficiently at the same time, we keep saying on a daily basis that you can use more heavy weaponry. because if you look at the ratio of what amount of shelling receive from the aggressor is absolutely disproportionate. because on average russians are shooting around $50000.00 rounds a day. now this is a lot of ammunition and this of course destroys this ratio city to the ground. ok? it's indiscriminate. there should be schools, hospitals, residential areas. so we have received some major assistance. we are grateful for it, but we need more and we needed fast. in particular, the m a r s. systems long wrench, rocket systems. we're going to have to leave it there with your soc advisor to the cranium. defense minister, thank you very much for your time today. thank you. thank you.
10:09 pm
now wherever possible, people are still fleeing from active battle zones. if the russian invasion of ukraine, one of the areas near the front line is not just south of severe, don't ask the city to was hit by shelling much of an infrastructure has been destroyed, but it's still possible for people to be evacuated from there. i spoke earlier to solemn adina about these evacuation efforts. he's the founder of team humanity, which is a nonprofit based and denmark of dean has just been to bad mood, helping to get civilians out. and this is how he described the situation of the war there. yeah, it's very hard. the situation is really hard right now because the civilians can get out. and the only way to get them out is having armored truck scoring and quickly getting them out from the basement from wherever they are. and the most
10:10 pm
people actually not from bomb, which is actually in the midst and the villages around it. so it's really hard to get them out while they love, but say the military, when they bring it to us, then we need to get them into the buses. and drive them away because they're bobbing. also, bubbling yesterday were sitting and waiting for him for the recreation and then 200 meters away from us. you could hear the bombs like hit somewhere. so it's situation is really tense right now. religion and going off of that, there have been so many efforts to get civilians out of various places throughout the course of this war. many of these convoys have failed. many of these managerial quarters have failed. how are you able to get in and out of these dangerous areas? you know, we were driving inside and we were driving from bomb, wants to go to several minutes and then we got stopped by the chick point. not so far away, like maybe 7 kilometers away from $7.00. they said if you go this way,
10:11 pm
you will not come back. it seems like russians are hiding themselves in the bushes in the houses that is not. and then when the car pat, just shoot after this is how it seemed like this is the soldiers what they told us . and then we are standing next to the checkpoint. and when you see like, like, like yesterday, hey, where there was a military ambulance that just passed us and you should like it was, i was almost doing all because it was the smell of dead people in that apples. you could smell it. the window was open and he just passed that you could smell that, that people. so it's really like crazy right now. and the most the most hard thing is to get the civilians out and we try to do our best. but to do that, we need our trucks and we have like 2 buses, small buses that can get in quick and out again. so it's really, really hard to get to it. and there is a lot of children, a lot of women we took, we had them in the bus, would throw them away from
10:12 pm
a ties. you could see the children traumatized. you can see everybody's traumatized and also injured. so it's really, really hard. i know you seem really to be on your own there. can you tell us more about what's behind your operation? who's, who's able to fund you to be able to do the work that you're doing the people's funding. ours is that people trust us and believe in our work, we've been doing the different directories. roles are enough dentist unless you're evacuating. so it's actually organizations, non profit organizations and mostly civilian people. good people around there that is from all over the world. but then inclination still, we could do the equation right now we were asking for getting an arm, a truck so we could get inside where we know we're going to be shot that we know we're going to be bonded. but our armored truck can get in quick, get the people out, get them to the safety, and then drive them out from that place because by mouth is not, is not the se, from a lot of places to see if. if you're sitting at the bottom,
10:13 pm
like you would want to get away from it and the people was standing around, it was just normal. you could see the, i was just there from a time they've been hearing this bombing like for very long time. so it's like just the normal thing for them salon. alden from team humanity international there in ukraine. thank you very much. taking his time out in a very difficult situation. thank you. half a 1000000000 people. half a 1000000000 around the world rely on ukrainian food exports of wheat, corn, and sunflower oil. but with the russian navy, blockading ukrainian ports, the cost of everyday staples are rising sharply. to make matters worse, some of the worse, heaviest fighting is around ukraine's agricultural center in the south and in the east of the country. he w. nick connelly visited one farmer on the front lines near nichol life birdsong and tractors. and not the only sounds ninty even of his 4000 hector's
10:14 pm
artillery far in the distance, never really stops. but in a d and her team, a preoccupied with other things, the quote i'm going to look at the suite, it's under fed, it's under loved but that wasn't for want of trying on the 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, an attempt to get back to feeding the world. declare a part of the missiles fly over our heads towards mc alive over their weights in the fields catches fire really easily with all the dry strong. if you do get a direct hit, you can lose hector's to the flames. in a matter of minutes, this unexploded russian missile dug its way and meter into the ground to some the ordinance of the russians left behind them. no sight landmines and countless shells
10:15 pm
. they also took a lot with them from chainsaws to food and even cutlery. deer is tilting up the losses. this crop spray the forms, pride and joy that just been bought for more than a quarter 1000000 euros was destroyed, for it could be used thus far down for the use cosette bombs. it turns the insides of equipment like this to mid 0. it's a mass. see that spray tank riddled with holes with months of field work missed, and much of her machinery either destroyed or shorter diesel. tedious as this is harvest, the modest at 1st i like the harvest up behind these walls with is a 2021, was a record year across the ukraine, with full grain storage units, almost everywhere. much of the bumper crop hadn't even reached world markets when
10:16 pm
war broke out in late february. that's because many farmers keep their grain back until prices are highest during the winter months. and that is case, that's thousands of tons. 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 does that grain used to be like? gold cra, he could always salad easily. whatever you want it, this is the 1st time ever. we can't get it off our hands with you cranes, ports already shut. but also mind la deal with russia to reopen, not in the cards. alternatives from river budget 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 you have been found trucks now face weeks, long tail back to unload. for now, grain for this form, a 1000 like if you go know it's a situation is left,
10:17 pm
the dia struggling to pay her work is wages the same time the world desperately wait for the grains 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 of a head. now meanwhile, the european union is considering ukraine's application to become a member of the block in abuse brussels chorused by it. christine, what spoke to ukraine's ambassador to the ear. she asked him why it is so important that keith get a signal from brussels about their chances of a session. this green light, this yes, from the european union. it's something which gives the hope to ukrainian people which boost morale to cranial army. and it gives the direction of development of the country for the mit and long term future. you're talking about development of
10:18 pm
the country. there are some e u member states who are more hesitant on the issue of candidate status. because they say that reforms in ukraine are not happening fast enough, judicial reform, rule of law reform, anti corruption reform. what is it that you can effect such member states? what is it that ukraine can do now to show its commitment to these reforms? ah, i would like to offer a few things to those members days or 1st of all, to be fair or with ukraine. and to look in which state of the countries are which exceeded or got the membership or candidate status back in the ninety's. or later in, in which state of development in which stayed there justice system or under corruption system. where on that moment and i mean that ukraine is much more
10:19 pm
advanced now than those countries where some 20 years ago. this is obviously still am under wraps a to a large extent, but we hear that the leaders of france, germany in italy, that is chancellor olive schultz present emanuel cron and president maria druggie will be in k of talking to president zalinski. what would kids like to see from these leaders? what should they be taking to such a meeting? it, sir? first of all, it's a very good news that they're coming to ukraine to see you there with their own eyes. what is going on and how they can support ukraine and also to see what is the level of reform? what is the level of maturity of ukraine in the context of this membership perspective? and definitely how to help you crane militarily. so this is something they need to do now, and they need to do fust. finally,
10:20 pm
at ambassador e, his estate will be meeting again at the end of this month. i can, we expect that present zalinski would be addressing that meeting. so it depends on the format and the program of the meeting and the president's zalinski already several times address the council. so it's definitely for the president of the council for the members state to decide or how to do this time. thank you so much. as some other world news happening now, the special congressional committee investigating last year's january 6 storming of the united states capital holding its 2nd live hearing. they're hoping to get the attention of americans with live television broadcast. it was a panel i spent 8 years collecting evidence. it's the chairman has described the insurrection as an orchestrated attempt to stop with a peaceful transition of power to president joe by you know, for coming. and he was an appeals court in london has refused to grant an
10:21 pm
injunction to stop the united kingdom from deporting asylum seekers to wanda. the 1st deportation fight is due to go ahead on tuesday. british government says it's aiming to curb illegal immigration, the ignited nations refugee chief says the plan sets a quote, catastrophic precedent. the british government has reveal plans to ditch some post bricks. it trading rules with the european union. it says it wants to alleviate trade disruptions with north and ireland, which belongs to the u. k. but under the current bricks, it deal northern ireland is effectively inside the use single market. that's meant to preserve in open border with the republic of ireland the you see on the map there, which is an e u. member. the open border between the 2 islands is a condition of the peak, 19 ninety's air, a peace agreement that ended decades of violence between the 2 sides. yet that
10:22 pm
require certain trade checks between northern ireland and the rest of the u. k. so the u. case proposed legislation which scrap some of those checks and the you says the changes are illegal and as threatened to retaliate, a fresh shipment of goods being delivered to northern ireland from elsewhere in the u. k. it requires custom declarations and sometimes checks the e. u in britain jointly agreed to this in the northern ireland protocol. but now the british government says it's too costly and no longer wants to adhere to the agreement. what it does is it creates unnecessary barriers on, on trade, east west. what we, what we can do is fix that not a big deal. we can fix it in such a ways to remove those bureaucratic barriers. the northern ireland protocol is intended to ensure the free movement of goods between ireland and northern ireland . britain now wants to repeal large parts of it, no more controls for some goods coming into northern ireland. even the european
10:23 pm
court of justice will no longer have any influence. johnson's fellow party members warn him that unilaterally changing the international treaty would be foolish and probably illegal. e representatives are disappointed and are already threatening punitive measures. the u. k has been in many ways a standard bearer for international law and the protection of international law for many, many years. this is damaging that rep reputation in a very fundamental way. but it's also a new low in terms of the relationship between britain and ireland. the british government has now introduced the bill in parliament, even though it still risks a legal dispute with the you the you is threatening legal action over the proposed changes earlier we spoke with did you corresponded burger moss to see if there still room for compromise? well, they saw it's keep repeating that they do want
10:24 pm
a negotiated solution. the u. k. are saying, well, we are tabling this for really we are continuing to negotiate. and the you also don't really want a trade war because ultimately it's, you know, it's, it's, it's about the whole trade between the, you and, and the u. k. way with very, very important trading partners. and the you is threatening to, to, to, to take some action against the u. k. and, but at the moment this is really not happening. so this is much further down the line because this bill also needs to go through parliament house and then it needs to go to the house of lords that there will be quite a lot of backlash, especially from the has flowed. so both sides will be hoping that there is a lot of posturing at the moment from the u. k, as well as from the you bought that really a solution can be negotiated in the end else turn to the fate of 2 men missing in
