4:05 pm
with ammunition and maybe some wounded soldiers are evacuated by boats. but you can imagine it is very difficult and if there is heavy shelling. so this vision is very, very dangerous for the ukraine in forces. and as far as i understand in the coming hours, there will be an attempt to evacuate civilians hiding in that chemical plant. i'm. it will probably take several days. we don't not know in where you pull in the city of a d as off. see, just a few weeks ago, there were several of days needed to advocate all civilians who were hiding under m and plants there. so we have a slightly different but in some aspect, similar situation here or have very difficult situation. now we just heard in the report that a pro russian representative in don boss is issued a surrender or die ultimatum to the ukrainian soldiers holding out in civil don't ask, has there been any reaction from the ukrainian military?
4:06 pm
no, i haven't seen any reaction so far and normally ukrainian forces would not react immediately to such such claims. or the situation is for the ukrainian forces, different from mario pole because ukrainian forces are not completely cut off and a help is not dozens of kilometers away. is just on the other bank of the river, so a ukrainian forces may retreat. they may receive some help. of course that help is limited, but still they do not have to surrender. roman ed, tell us about the significance of savannah. don't ask why or russian troops so focused on this city in this area? well, i would say there are 2 major reasons why the russian forces are so keen on taking several of the nets. or the 1st one is it used to be an administrative center of the region, low hans. so when the separatist declared themselves independent in the year, 2014 and the governmental institutions were moved to several dentist from low hands,
4:07 pm
which was the capital before of that region lance christian. and this is, were also a lot of refugees came from from the occupied territories and it was kind of a ukrainian stronghold. so russians want to capture it. and the 2nd reason is they want to declare civil nets. and lisa, chance, the neighboring city, and on the other bank, they want to declare then the complete a loo hands creegan for, for, as they call it liberated from the ukraine in an artist. which is, which is of course, a lie. there are no losses in ukraine so far, so it's a, it's a symbolic and also partially a strategical city for, for the russians, and also for ukrainian forces. d, w correspondent, roman, gone to rankel in keith. thank you. now russia's energy, giant gas prom says it will be reducing daily gas deliveries via the north stream pipeline to germany due to the repair of compressor units by german company,

4:13 pm
here last year by the united nations refugee agency, but does not want to stay. i just want to go ahead with his little book in and i would just go back to ne basement one does one of the least developed countries in the world. peter and i only hopes for a better future elsewhere. he feels bad for the migrant center. wonder under the recent deal because they must apply for asylum here. the u. k. ready given you the, my missy to them you that human being are you ready? you cannot tell them. going to stay here or go on buddhism, nor because if the field but are in you. ok you case, but to for the. but the u. k. government disagrees. it insists the policies needed to start the flood of all too often deadly megan crossings of the channel from france. it's very important. we get that we're going, we show that people trafficking doesn't work and we're able to reduce the costs
4:14 pm
over time over legal immigration and see, and i, to kingdom the un high commissioner for refugees has called the plans catastrophic . this is all wrong, this deal for so many different reasons. the precedent that this creates these catastrophic for a concept that needs to be shared like a silo. this hostile and run those capital kigali is expected to house the 1st migrants sent under the u. k. agreement, it's general manager said it was not a prison despite tight security measures and opinion that may not be shared by some of the new arrivals. when i'm joined now from london by catherine stubblefield, she is senior external relations officer and spokesperson for the united nations high commissioner for refugees in the u. k. catherine, thanks for joining us on d. w. or the human rights of these refugees or migrants being respected by the

4:16 pm
a legal human trafficking across the english channel is not a good thing. after all, many migrants have drowned, attempting to cross the channel, send a you and hcr, and then many other humanitarian to share states concerns in terms of dangerous journey, the risks that many asylum refugees feel compelled to take in order to reach what we're very concerned about. here is that there's no evidence that this time policy is having that intended effect. and then of course, is also a question as to what happens to people after they get their route for one day past experience. for example, after me, israel send it wonder was that many, i'm sure, really short period did not state and that when people are trying to say against their will in a manner they do not want to say that despite the arrangements that have been made, that exposes them in fact, even more dangerous jenny center for the recent future. what awaits the migrants to

4:18 pm
a presumptive legal status. so we talk about the situation on the ground, or we need a clear everyone that has a proud tradition of very positive tradition of writing century refugee. because we are concerned about the big shortcomings here in terms of individual just having extra davis. and of course, the transfer people who have not traveled themselves for one day. i haven't said catherine sober feel from the u. n. h c r in the u. k. thank you. thank you. now to some of the other stories making news around the world. dozens of members of a former opposition party income bodya have been convicted of treason. it's the latest in a number of mass trials sort of targeted the cambodian national rescue party. critics say the southeast asian country has been reduced to a one party state the

4:22 pm
a passer by in his hometown neural ahmad rama on a. people have cursed at me met, but i tell them everything is fine. i understand you. so don't worry. you're not guilty for thinking that your brain has been corrupted by the propaganda. who knows with those modern soup mccloud slip again. mm hm. it was released, wants to change the perspective of his firm someday, he hopes to return to russia and perform again. maybe bring his kids as well. but only if it's a new russia one without a good. well for more we're joined here in the studio by our former moscow correspondence and be sure when emily, good to see you. so how common has it become for our to say like this release and previously loved in russia to be cancelled by fans? am further anti war stance?
4:23 pm
well, there are actually quite a lot of well known musicians and artists who have come out with an anti war stance . and of course the reaction to that has been, you know, has varied. and depending on the audience that they play to and depending on their fans, so some have applauded that you know, if they're more critical and some fans have obviously said, you know, how can you do this and some examples for you. so basically, magnesia who represented russian at rush on your vision recently you might remember she had her concerts canceled for her criticism of the war within russia. quite recently, a comedian and presenter is very well known very much part of the establishment in russia. maxine gall can, has been taking to instagram with an anti war stands and he says that he's been actually facing a pretty much coordinated smear campaign on state t v against him with accusations that he's essentially a criminal being leveled at him. now, recently we also had within russia the front men of
4:24 pm
a popular rock group. did they tell you really shift shook? who was on stage and who criticized, put in himself. he said that russia is not put in and that we should stop kick kissing to the president, essentially. and then a little bit ruder words. been still and he got a cheer from the audience, but then he got in trouble with the police. so the authority is definitely making it clear where people should come when it comes to the war, what their stance should be, including celebrities. somebody mentioned though, some well known their personalities they are in russia have clearly made their opinions, heard, they've been posting videos with destruction inflicted by the russian army and also as well from you know, comments from locals in ukraine on the ground who were telling their side of the story, but yet they're still a lot of sentiment against this what, what's being said, that what, what are people saying to these people? well, it's really interesting that these celebrities are using those platforms and are using social media to kind of get through to people. and you know, because of
4:25 pm
a lot of them have tens of thousands of followers including on instagram, maxine gulf, who i mentioned is one case like that. and i think that's really an attempt to break through this propaganda bubble that people are kind of in, you know, after the war started the 1st few weeks and months. state tv was only broadcasting, things about about politics. they cancel all entertainment. so they really went hard when you could say on propaganda. and you even heard stories of, you know, people talking to their own relatives in ukraine who are telling them what was happening on the ground. and people didn't believe it. so the celebrities are kind of trying to break through that, and of course they are facing, you know, some of some of the backlash that we're just talking about. natalie. there's a debate going on in russia right about in with, in cultural circles about how far russian culture on the whole is now totally compromised. could you tell us a little bit more about that? there has been a huge discussion about that since the beginning of the war on which people see who
4:26 pm
are critical of put in this government as a war of aggression. but especially since those atrocities that we saw when the russian army left boucher people have started asking including well known film critic, i'm anton doyle, and can russian culture basically exist at all? and that's part of a discussion in russia about collective guilt that's been going on as well. emily, sure with thank you for your insights. now, here's an image you're unlikely to be taking with your smartphone anytime soon. european space agency has released data on nearly 2000000000 stars in our galaxy. it's a massive step towards creating the most accurate map, yet of the milky way. the data was collected by the essays guy, a space observatory which was launched 9 years ago. astronomers hope to use the data to understand better have the milky way evolved over billions of years. experts have described it as a treasure trove of information. when you're watching dw news coming up next in
