6:03 pm
russian forces. moscow and pro russian separatists in the region have issued an ultimatum to the ukrainian troops still holding out in the city. there was few but the ukrainian military unit, so that the station there remained therefore either with what they have 2 options. either follow the example of the colleagues and surrender or die love, they have no other option over them. but the ukranian president remains defiant. my mom was for i will, we are dealing with absolute even in my more. and we have no other choice but to move if she'll not free our entire territory. why did you kick the occupies out of all outreach al serra and albert. now the width of our front is already more than 2500 kilometers. you can feel that the strategic initiative is still on our side intro via a nearby town to the north, west of subordinates, ukrainian police race to bring civilians to safety, many of them elderly. they didn't want to leave the house. now they have no choice
6:04 pm
but to go well here is dw correspondent roman gone to ranko in keith with an update on the situation in the eastern city of savannah, noting ask of the situation is getting more and more dangerous should hour by the hour. so you're right, all the 3 bridges have been destroyed and by now, as far as i understand, the ukrainian forces can still get some support from a those are from the neighboring, a city of lucy chunks, which is a twin city of several. then ask suited on the other bank of the she was can escort eva and it is m. as far as i understand, there is a connection over the reba with boats. so ukrainian forces are being resupplied with ammunition and maybe some wounded soldiers are evacuated by boats. but you can imagine it is very difficult and 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
6:05 pm
hours, there will be an attempt to evacuate civilians hiding in that chemical plant. and it will probably take several days. we do not know in where you pull in the city of a d as off. see just a few weeks ago, there were several days needed to advocate all civilians who were hiding under m and plant there. so we have a slightly different but in some aspects, similar situation here, i have very difficult situation. i. 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. incidental don't ask, has there been any reaction from the ukrainian military? no, i haven't seen any reaction so far and normally ukrainian forces would not react immediately to such such claims on the situation is for the ukrainian forces a different from amari opal,
6:06 pm
a 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 ukrainian forces may retreat. they may receive some help. of course that help is limited, but still they do not have to surrender. that was dw correspondent, roman gone to ranko, reporting from keith or russia's energy joint 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. siemens gas prom plans to limit supplies to 100000000 cubic meters per day, which is only 60 percent of capacity. and north stream is the older of 2 parallel pipelines, leading from germany to russia, or from germany. so excuse me, from russia to germany, the newest north stream to woods finished recently, but isn't used you to sanctions against russia over it's war?
6:07 pm
or earlier d w 's chief political editor, mckayla could not told me. it's still not clear what is causing the repair. it denies august from says it's not it's a decision that this is due to maintenance work that was needed on that pipeline that supplies most of them and a gas directly through the know stream one pipeline. compress the units being serviced by humans. we understand that they actually ready for replacement. and the big question now is why they have been unable to be delivered back. and whether the timing of this maintenance is earlier than you know, that was expected this summer, although it's not possible at this point in time. to really find out whether it is the russian side that is deliberate, the limiting or whether it really is the european side that it's dragging its heels
6:08 pm
in terms of delivering the equipment, the hardware required to keep the pipeline running at this moment in time. but it's a highly sensitive issue as europe is trying to store up it's gas storage ahead of what could be another long autumn winter. well, that brings me on to white. my next question, mckayla, does it mean that we'll soon see natural gas shortages here in germany and perhaps in the rest of europe? that's an issue that is looming for now. we're hearing that nobody's seen any drops yet and that there is monitoring going on. and in parallel, we've seen the german government announced that it is not just continuing its effective control of gas from manya, which is holds major gas infrastructure, picky storage infrastructure, pipe and infrastructure here in germany. but that the german government is also going to grant a gas from manya, a 1000000000 euro loan to keep it afloat,
6:09 pm
and to keep it from going into insolvency. also, it will be renamed into energy for europe and the security for europe. so clearly this is also information in the making here proper gander, p r. point school there by the german side against what is effectively still a russian owned company. here in germany. t w's chief political editor, mckayla, cuz now thank you. you're watching, did of you new still to come the latvian pop star, you find fame and fortune in russia, but now faces the wrath of some fans, movies, criticism of the crap. all right, well let's take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world. allies of jailed russian opposition leader alexi. nev only say he's been transferred to an undisclosed location and they don't know where he is. now,

6:13 pm
over time over legal immigration and the, 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 these creates these cup of coffee for the 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. earlier i spoke with katherine stubblefield, senior external relations officer with the un hedge c, r in the u. k. and i asked her whether the human rights of these migrants are being respected. i said,
6:14 pm

6:15 pm
a good thing. after all, many migrants have drowned, attempting to cross the channel. cindy, you and hcr and that, and many other humanitarian actors share states concerns in terms of dangerous journey. the risks of many asylum seekers and refugees feel compelled to take in order to reach. what we're very concerned about here is that there is 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 are against they will want to past experience. for example, after me, israel sending richard an asylum seekers for wonder was that many answer really short period did not stay there. that when people are trying to say against their will and of course, man, and they do not want to say that despite the arrangements that have been made met, exposes them. in fact, even more dangerous. jenny sent for the recent future. what awaits the migrants to

6:21 pm
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? 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 cancelled 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
6:22 pm
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 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 up 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 authorities are definitely making it clear where people should come when it comes to the war, what their sense should be, including celebrities. somebody mentioned no, some well known their personalities. they are in russia who've 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
6:23 pm
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 for the 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 a lot of them have tens of thousands of followers including on instagram. maxine gul can, 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 canceled 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 written cultural circles about how far
6:24 pm
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 are critical of, 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 in 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. spain is dealing with the earliest heat wave to hit since the 1980 s. a cloud of hot air from north africa has and temperature soaring above 40 degrees celsius. across large parts of the country, authorities or warning of an extreme risk of wildfires, scientists say climate changes making heat waves more frequent and more intense.
