8:08 pm
this is over there still, you know, investigating, and most probably this is just a one person terror attack, not sure unless and until they're sure they are heightening the threat level, norway, to the highest level. now the official pride parade was canceled off to the shooting, but people still went out spontaneously on to the streets to protest. can you tell us more about that? yes, and they just wouldn't to come to the fear. and there were thousands who marched spontaneously started with just a few, and then thousands joined them. the march to the 3rd, to the scene of the crime. and they were chanting we are here, we queer, we won't disappear. so it's been a really tough day in norway. today. we can see the pictures of the protest, obviously a lot of emotion. can you tell us more generally? what norwegians, reactions at reaction has been to the shooting. this is

8:10 pm
okay, we're going to take a quick look at some of the stories making headlines at this hour. tens of thousands of people are marching in warsaw as gay pride parade. the event is the largest of its kind in central europe, the ukranian l g b t. community has been invited to take part in the polish capitals festivities because of russia's invasion. protests have been taking place across the united states after the supreme court ended 50 years of federal abortion rights. and 6 to 3 ruling. the court overturned the landmark $973.00 roe vs wade decision that enshrined a woman's right to an abortion. you are states now have the power to set their own abortion laws in several states have already banned it. human rights groups in spain and morocco of food for an investigation into the deaths of at least a seen african migrants who attempted to breach the board offense to the spanish enclave of malala. a local rights group says moroccan security forces used
8:11 pm
unjustified violence. the spanish prime minister described friday's deadly rush as an attack on spain's territorial integrity to the war in ukraine. now, after weeks of fierce facing and severe done, yet, the mayor says it has now been fully occupied by the russians. this is the country's biggest battlefield set back in more than a month. ukrainian army announced it was withdrawing its forces from the eastern city on friday. ukrainian forces are now regrouping to higher ground in neighboring las he chanced, as, according to the head of military intelligence, pro moscow. separatists say, russian troops have entered the city and are engaged in street fighting, but that claim can't be independently verified. earlier i spoke to w correspondent conley, who's in the ukranian capital, keith, and after russian forces seized control of severity on the ask, i asked him how big of a victory this is for moscow? i think if we zoom out a bit and maybe wait for
8:12 pm
a few months to see the real differences of this, it might turn out to be all oh victory. yes, this is a big city. yes, this is something they've been fighting for for weeks, but is it really important enough to have invested so much time, so much weaponry in so many lives. and it seems to be that the grange strategy is as with marable, basically to bind the russians for as long as possible, forced them into those kind of street for street urban battles, of proving incredibly costly in terms of russian lives. and then to pull back or when possible in the last possible moment to avoid losing unnecessary ukrainian military personnel in that battle. i think it's important to remember here that this is basically the only big you, christy, that rush has been able to take in over a month. the last was marable and basically, all the big russian victories were in the 1st couple weeks of this war when ukraine was busy, overwhelmed with lots of fighting on different fronts of the same time. so it is, it is progress for russia, but nowhere near the kind of pace of advance that we were expecting from russia, given their superiority in terms of firepower, manpower, and finances. so yes,
8:13 pm
they're making progress, but ukraine is still and on bass and is not getting chaotically having to leave the battlefield. now, the russians are now expected to turn their attention to the near by city of little chance. can we expect a similar as the air similar scenario to, to play out there in just chance is a bit different. it has a geography busy, some higher ground that makes it easier to defend. yes, the russians are trying to get around that and to have a go that city from more than one side to avoid having to cross the river that divide several minutes from this a chance. and we're also seeing them basically trying to up the pressure on ukrainian force, the other parts of the country to basically forced the cranes to spread themselves more thinly. so we're seeing more shilling in the south mich alive in the north, near had given also bell russian forces are on exercise not to miss all strikes on ukraine from belarus last night. so since the russians are trying to draw away ukrainian forces from the dumbass where they've been defending quite successfully.
8:14 pm
but for now, there isn't a sense that the, the ukraine forces are somehow in disarray. they are getting western weapons. it's not could out coming as fast as they'd want. and in the scale on the scale that the ukranian positions say they need, but they are making a difference. and they are allowing ukraine to compensate at least to some degree for their lack of weapons, or for there are comparative, smaller numbers of artillery stems out on the field. they're able to use that in coordination with better intelligence from the americans and use of drones to basically reduce that russian security to something that still somehow gives the ukrainians a chance of holding ground. he de leon, nick connelly, mt. thank you so much. russian president vladimir to since says that moscow will deliver missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads to better us in the coming months of mobile guided missile system. the escandone em has a range of up to 500 kilometers which made the announcement as a received spell. russian leda alexander lucas shanker. he also offered to upgrade the country's war plains,
8:15 pm
make them capable of carrying nuclear weapons. because jenko told putin belarus was concerned about the aggressive confrontational and repulsive policies of its neighbors, lithuania, and show from 2 to 4. we go a quick look at our top story. this, our security has tightened. the german stations, the barrier ahead of a summit of g 7 leaders, thousands protested gathering to demand more action against climate change and quality. so we have time for coming out next for puerto on location, looks at the free press under pressure in hong kong i menu. thanks for watching the w ah ah.
