8:03 pm
they have no other option would impact them. but the ukrainian president remains defiant. my mom was role, we're dealing with absolute even in my more. and we have no other choice but to move it if she will not free our entire territory. why do kick the occupies out of all outreach al serra and elbow. now the width of our front is, will bring more than 2500 kilometers. you can feel that the strategic initiative is still on our side of our inter villa, a nearby town to the north west of severity nath, ukrainian police race to bring civilians to safety, many of them elderly. they didn't want to leave their home. now they have no choice but to go well here is dw correspondent roman gone to ranko in cave with an update on the situation in the eastern city of savannah on yeske of the situation is getting more and more dangerous hour by the hour. so you're right,
8:04 pm
all the 3 bridges have been destroyed and by now, as far as i understand, the ukrainian forces can still get some support from those m, from the neighboring city of lucy chunks, which is a twin city of several. then ask sedated on the other bank of the see was could the nascar eva and it is m. as far as i understand, there is a connection over the river with boats. so ukrainian forces have been re supplied 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 the situation is very, very dangerous for the ukrainian forces. and as far as i understand in the coming hours, there will be an attempt to evacuate civilians hiding in that chemical plant. um, it will probably take several days. we do not know in where you pull in the city of a day as of see just a few weeks ago, there were several days needed to advocate all civilians who were hiding under m
8:05 pm
and plant there. so we have a slightly different but in some aspects, similar situation here are very difficult situation. now. we just heard in the report that a pro russian representative in dumbasses 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 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 ukrainian forces may retreat. they may receive some help. of course that help is limited, but still they do not have to surrender. the german government says it's placing
8:06 pm
the former german subsidiary of russian energy giant gas prom, into long term administration. the move is aimed at securing europe's energy supply, major ongoing sanctions. berlin already took gas from germania into temporary administration earlier this year. now it will provide a 10000000 euro loan to the company to prevent it from going bankrupt. it's also changed its name. the company runs critical energy infrastructure in germany. russia's gas problem severed all ties to the firm after germany, sanctions russia following its invasion ukraine. well, for more on this, we can now talk to our political correspondent thomas expire. tom is good to see you. so germany is putting gas from germania in long term administration and providing a 10000000000 euro loan. is this essentially a take over? because essentially a decision to maintain control over gasp, romania,
8:07 pm
which the german government considers to be very important to guarantee gas supply in germany. gas transport for example, is something that the german government has specifically mentioned in this regard. it is also a decision to maintain gas supply in the country, considering that according to a german government gas from manya deals with critical infrastructure here in the country. and as such, plays an important role altogether. and that's the reason why this decision was of a gospel demand. yet this decision now makes that control more long term, right, thomas, at the same time, the former russian owner of van gas from germania has announced it is reducing its natural gas deliveries to germany. so are germany on the european union facing the possibility of shortages? they are certainly looking very carefully at this decision to reduce supply to
8:08 pm
something that we've heard also from german officials. but at the same time, the german government has stressed that supply for now is guaranteed. and as such, they are not necessarily very concerned about that. they're looking guided carefully, but not necessarily with a lot of concern. it is also important to stress that some of the issues around this are still not at all clear. so for example, what the reason behind this decision is now whether it is only something temporary or more long term, and those are all still issues that have to be decided on discussed. but a such, the german government has been very clear that supply is still guaranteed here in germany. thomas borrow. thank you. the u. k. government is defending a plan to de port asylum seekers to romando ours before the 1st flight is to to leave. the controversial policy aims to discourage migrants from crossing the english channel into britain. human rights groups and church leaders have condemned
8:09 pm
it as a moral legal challenges mean, just a handful of people are set to be on the flight, but the british government is insisting it will take off. it will take the to ported asylum seeker, some 6600 kilometers to the were wondering capital kigali. outside em seekers who are already living there, paint a bleak picture of what awaits the new arrivals at transit center. in rwanda, these refugees tried to reach europe, but did not succeed. many of them ended up spending years in detention centers in libya before being relocated here. one of them is peter, naomi. 8 years ago he slept south sudan amid the country civil war. he was moved 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 no true statements. one does one of the least developed countries in the world. peter and ione hopes for
8:10 pm
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. g of menu the my mistake to them is that human beings are unique. you cannot tell them. going to stay here or gone buddhism nor because if they feel better in you, ok, you crazy, but for those. but the u. k. government disagrees, it insists the policies needed to stop 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 over time over legal immigration and seen i to kingdom the un high commissioner for refugees has called the plans catastrophic disease or wrong. this deal
8:11 pm
for so many different reasons, the precedent that this creates these cup of coffee for the concept that needs to be shared like a silo. this hostile and wonders 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. or earlier we spoke to catherine stubblefield, m. she's a senior external relations officer with the un refugee agency in britain. she explained why the organization is so strongly against this policy. i said, you said there's an important distinction here. hello, in the sense that these people who are coming contrary to a number of public crimes, certainly not economic migrants. when you look at the home of johnson, in terms of he's been arriving in recent months is across the channel and may now
8:12 pm
be subject to the wonder we would find it very likely that these people would be found to be refugees, a decision maker. so what we have expressed is unix. yeah. repeatedly is that we do not consider this arrangement of the rights. this is other international law. we consider it an outsourcing the united kingdom international obligations. and we remain very about to deal with spain is dealing with the earliest heat wave to hit since the 1990 s. a cloud of hot air from north africa. cent temperature soaring above 40 degrees celsius across large parts of the country. authorities are warning of an extreme risk of wildflowers. scientists say climate change is making heat waves more frequent and more intense. the last time it got this hot,
