5:04 pm
i spots that provide respite from the overwhelming la corresponding jack park is in london. i asked him how people are coping with a record temperatures. well, i am not feeling cool, phil. that's for sure. it is probably right now at this moment, the hottest, it has ever been in this country. certainly, since records began, this is the hottest time of what is predicted to be the hottest day that has ever been recorded in the united kingdom. as we heard in the report across britain, there are temperature searing over 42 degrees celsius. and while the advice is for people to remain at home to stay hydrated, to avoid being in the sun. as you can see here on oxford street, london's main shopping street, there are still a lot of people out in a bite and the wanting from the government is to try and stay cool though to ease the pressure on security services and on the local infrastructure. there are limited services running on the london underground and on trains up and down the
5:05 pm
country. it is predicted, however, while today will be the hottest day. it could fall off a cliff temperature wise, be 10 degrees or more, less tomorrow than it is today. felt like park in london and barbara vessel is in another european hotspot, bordeaux in the south of france, close to an area affected by wildfire. sh. yes. trust the french police, of course, still not to let us get any closer. we're waiting here for police escort who is supposed to bring the press a bit closer, but the fires are somewhere here behind us. and they've even reached the atlantic seacoast. on the other side here where there's a vacation paradise that's used by people from bordeaux in the summer, huge dunes. and the far as of right up to the war to have completely been raised down last night. so the fires are still not under control. they're still raging, it's very difficult. the temperatures have let up
5:06 pm
a bit. we've got from above 42 bit above 30 years. so it's a relatively easy day. but we have a really lively wind, sometimes really strong winds, and they are pushing the fire and the changing directions. and they're pushing the fire forward. it's difficult for the firefighters to get a grip there with these fires here in the forest behind us. because they're changing directions all the time. the fires are jumping from one street to the next . so it's very dangerous. we've seen huge evacuations here. almost 40000 people in this whole area have been evacuated because the police are trying to are on the side of being cautious and they're bringing people out and telling everyone to leave their houses. so know some of occasions here in this region for this year. okay, barbara, hazel, and border, thank you so much. or perhaps a heat wave will help focus mindset 2 talks on the global warming being held here
5:07 pm
in berlin. this week. leaders from around 40 countries are preparing for the next big un climate summit in egypt in november, germany's green foreign minister on the line of bab walkers called on countries to accelerate their transition to renewable energy dw correspondent benjamin alvarez. gruber has been talking to chiles, environment minister my cert rojas and asked why this meeting. i had it for cop 27 in egypt is so important. i would say that we were a little bit worried that the momentum that we saw at cop 26 in glasgow was sort of fading away a little bit. so we needed to bring em ministers, head of delegation together to confirm that we are still on in with the ambition that we need in this critical decade. it's a quarter of the decade is already gone. and we're still seeing emissions are
5:08 pm
rising and, and with the war in europe and the energy crisis, there are, of course, a lot of questions on em. are we still going to meet our goals of being carbon neutral by 2050 halfing, our emissions by 2030 so that the 1.5 degree or warming goal is still alive to feel that the war in ukraine that you mentioned is leaving it or is an obstacle to reach the global climate goals? it depends. and it could, it really depends on how we use this crisis, because indeed it is a crisis. it's not just an energy crisis is a foot to critical. i mean, it's human a tearing crisis. of course as well, but how are we going to use or how europe in particular i would say, is going to use this crisis and solvents, how is going to what, what is going to be the approach we have heard and be reassured that europe is,
5:09 pm
am indeed, some measures i have been taking to allow energy security for this winter in particular, but that those measures would not derail europe or from their 2030 targets. and i think that that is critically important for, for the rest of the world. m a and we have heard that we can be reassured that this is going to happen. so in that sense i think it was a, it was a good meeting. my sorrow has chillen, environment minister. thank you so much. watching t w's a still come arrest success story in the fight against drives and deforestation. we'll look at an island whose trees had all but disappeared. it's not been replanted by the community 1st. so vladimir putin has arrived in iraq on own he 2nd trip outside russia since launching the war against ukraine in
5:10 pm
february. russian president is due to hold talks with the leaders of turkey and iran. discussions would include syria, ukraine under un backed proposal to resume exports, of ukrainian. great ali for tal on the job is an iran experts and also the book iran in an emerging world order. we asked him whether russia and iran are getting closer as both countries are now under severe western sanctions. well, definitely, so, i mean, 1st of all, a closer russian iranian corporation was already on displayed before russia's war on ukraine, but said is provided a new twist. the new momentum for the bilateral relationship, which is quite as symmetrical for sure, but both as you said, are under severe western sanctions and iranian soap to be part of a new world order. you know, that is based on the pillars of russia and china. so there are trying to get
5:11 pm
closer even closer to russia now, after russia's war on ukraine, ali satellite in the chat. so in you career in ukraine, at least one residents that was killed when russian missiles struck a residential area in crime tours can the easton dynette region. but that the strike was one of around 5 hit. the city which is seen as a probable target for russian occupation, common tasks, mer, urge civilians to leave. those attacks came after a barrage of missiles to desa from the black sea overnight. the strikes also hit residential areas and destroyed several homes, as it is crucial to exporting desperately needed ukrainian grain to the rest of the world. 22000000 tons of grain remain stuck there because of the fighting like a respondent felt if a shot is in cave. and she told me more about the attacks running
5:12 pm
a broad level so that this basically means that these indiscriminate bombings are intensifying, especially in those regions that you mentioned, the odessa regional semicolon region. these are key portal towers, odessa city, and mcauliffe, a town along the black sea that of course, russia would love to control if they would like to control ukraine. so unfortunately, you would probably see mo, mrs. strikes in these areas, but also come a tourist that happened today. and mrs. strike wounding several people and appeared to killing one person according to regional authorities. they come a tourist located in, in the don bus region also here. russia wants to advance. so as russia is regrouping to renew it's offensive, unfortunately, we will see more of this shunting and unfortunately it's going to be the civilians who have to be the bronze. if you look at the statistics, the official statistic, at least, that is being a conveyed here by the ukranian officials, which we cannot confirm. they say that about a su to percent of these mrs. strikes hit
5:13 pm
a military targets. why the rest 70 percent? quite a huge number here. it's a civilian targets. now we cannot confirm once again these numbers, but what we can say that thousands of civilians have been killed already in these past 5 months, while these war rages on here in ukraine. and now parliament us back the president's decisions regarding ukraine's prosecutor general and security chief exactly. on top of that, ukraine is facing us. there is domestic problems. i mean, the least thing you want to expose is that you are a security service nearly the asp. you hear and ukraine is appearance the infiltrated, according to accusations or by the president presidents lensky, infiltrated by russian spies. he said, basically he dismissed 2 of his closest allies, a childhood friend who was the head of the s, b u on the up until yesterday, and a general prosecutor of allegations that they were unable to root out,
5:14 pm
possibly filtration corruption, et cetera. so this comes at a very sensitive time because the only thing you want is to assure the enemy that you're on able to control information that he's so crucial right now. apart from trying to control the back of ground and trying to retake territory that he's on the control of russian forces. and this is, warranty said 6 months of funny. is it possible to sort of sum up where the war stance briefly, it stands at crossroads. both ukraine and russia, russia basically has this dilemma. al, trying to advancing the don't bus region, but at the same time, they also need to defend the southern part that they have claimed parts of the house and region. because this is where the counter offensive is going to be intensified, but ukrainian forces. they are lacking some manpower, but they do have still quite a bit of weapons are quite a superior with regard to ukrainian in that regard. however, at the same time, lot of weapons from the west of arrival. so here in ukraine, specifically to high mars
5:15 pm
a long range missile assistance from the u. s. that helps ukranian forces to be more precise in attacking certain bridges. soon, infrastructure in a rush and control territories, we really have to see how that is going to balance out and who is going to actually have the upper level here as this war age is on. is it going to be ukraine to actually turn to tide, or is it just going to continue as it is wearing everyone down the severe, especially for shot in case thank you. when this war started, thousands of young ukrainians joined the army to defend their homeland and hundreds of since been killed. they w money, well shot reports now on the young people fighting for their future am every day at 9 a. m the traditional song, please catch a sounds of my downfall. one minute after the u. m. i down revolution of 2014. it was played to commemorate the heavenly 100 protesters who died in the fight to push
