2:03 pm
i'm joined by d. w correspondent, nick conley. good to have you both. nicholas start with you on the day russia is illegally annexing parts of zap parisha, russian forces, fire a missile at a at a convoy killing civilians. what can you tell us about that attack nick? well for now we're getting information from the cranial thirty's in support. asia, and it seems like the death toll is set to rise. we're hearing about 25 casualties rather than 23. and about 60 plus injured where previously talk was about 50. i think there is a lot more to come. the image is come out of the bridge are pretty start to lot of calls with basically full of holes and shrapnel bits of broken glass everywhere because not destroyed, assuming this was true, the pressure wave ukrainian torture saying that this was the result of 16 missiles . there's really a very rare occurrence hitting one location, essentially on the edge of upward asia. these were missiles that were normally you
2:04 pm
would be used for antiaircraft systems, but in russia not having enough weapons right now to be able to use conventional rockets to attack lamb targets. and you mentioned that the people that lost their lives, with the most part heading towards rational funds, or patricia to evacuate loved ones, friends, and also brings meant attorney richard. what to attacks like this that we've just seen and moscow's illegal annexation move that's happening today. what to those things, tell us about how russia is doing in this war? well, i think it is pretty clear that russia is not doing. is it? well, is it wanted to be? of course, you know, back at the beginning of the invasion, there was a sense that putin had hoped that he could topple key even just a matter of days because that hasn't happened. but really, in recent weeks, it was the ukrainian counter offensive in the region of hockey in the east. the push, the russians out of that, out of that region that really put russia on the back foot. really put pressure on the put on, put in
2:05 pm
a trembling to make some traumatic moves. and we're seeing those dramatic moves taking place. now, not just with the annexation that we're seeing taking place illegally. one of that happening today. but also the mass mobilization of russian men to, to serve in this water prices can plug the gaps, the russian a military of shown there. so very much being seen by the west. these moves is a sign of weakness in the russian position. but that doesn't make it any less dangerous, in fact, potentially even more dangerous. that's exactly what i'm hearing are richard. many people are concerned about the possibility of this war going nuclear, does the legal annexation of these territories increase the risk of putin using nuclear weapons? well, potentially, i mean, vladimir putin has recently threatened for the 2nd time to use nuclear weapons. in the course of this conflict at the beginning of the conflict in his announcement of
2:06 pm
the war, he made a veiled threat in his comments there. and then a few days after that, he also announced that he was supposedly raising the alert level of russian nuclear forces. nothing really very concrete. happened in that u. s. intelligence. western intelligence were watching very closely to see if anything actually changed in terms of when russian nuclear weapons are stationed. anything that is really visible sign of that. there wasn't nothing really transpired. the latest nuclear threat that putin now now made in recent days is raising concerns in one particular way in that he's saying that he would use any kind of weapons to defend russian territory. and now of course, with this annexation he's saying, or russian territory isn't just what it was, russian territory is now plus these 4 regions. so there's a concern that that attacks on these 4 regions could in russian eyes cross a line which then leads to a nuclear respond is one quick thing i would add to that is that of course the
2:07 pm
ukrainians have already been attacking some weapons deposed. for instance, across across the russian border in the course of this war that has not triggered any kind of nuclear response. they've also attacked some positions on crimea, which russia regard as it's derek, re having illegally annex crimea, away back in 2014. so. so the ukraine is have been crossing a line that we may now be concerned refers to these for new regions. but certainly there is a, a heightened sense of concern at the moment about escalation running out of control . nick, ukraine has made territorial gains in recent weeks, but russia obviously isn't giving up what's the latest from the battlefield in ukraine. nick, where you are? well, that's the only thing on this day where i've learned futon is invited,
2:08 pm
seemingly half of moscow to the kremlin to celebrate what is being sold as this major victory. and you've got the leaders of those self proclaimed republics in viet kalonski the but he's jefferson in moscow waiting to meet the big man as it were. it seems like russia is headed for a major defeat, mississippi mom that's in the north west of the dumbass region. that is near the cities of least a chance. conservative genius, which russia are got from ukraine concord with huge losses in terms of personnel, but also material. and now it seems like ukraine has surrounded a huge number of russian troops. got $10000.00 is the estimate. and it seems like they only have one route out and that is a route that is under constant ukrainian fire. so the lakes reports been getting there is that these russian troops seemingly have been told not to have had themselves over to become prisoners of war. that they are trying to get out, even though they are huge risk from ukraine artillery. and this could end in very, very bad optics. a very bad headlines, for putin on exactly the day he wants to sell. this is a kind of changing moment,
2:09 pm
is the kind of shift in the tides, in his favor, as you just speaking there, nika, we were looking at some pictures of people seated, i presume, at red square, waiting for the annexation ceremony to take place. now, how did we get here? let's take a look at putins road to this impending land, graham. the occupying ukrainian territory is not on our agenda. we don't plan to force any, want you to do anything with violence. those were vladimir putin's words on february 24th, announcing start of russia's invasion. 7 months later, the rushes president has unleashed awards seen millions of ukrainians flee their homes, and is now annexing large ways of ukrainian territory. rushes troops and are near the front lines. the guns in hand, they've also been persuading ukrainians to vote in sham referendums. on joining the
2:10 pm
russian federation, vladimir putin has a long question, the legitimacy of ukraine's borders claiming that russia had been robbed when boundaries were drawn. if that wasn't enough, he went on to claim that ukraine was a creation of the soviet era. her one built on historic russian lands putin began re drawing the map in crimea in 2014, after lightning military takeover. russia held referendum that not even its close, his allies have recognized, but for russia's president, it was enough to back up his claims to be acting with consent. but annexation wasn't the only strategy in the criminal playbook in ukraine. few months after crimea, russia took a different approach in ukraine's east crating puppet regimes. the so called danielle and the hans people's republics. officially, at least, there was no talk of them becoming part of russia. in reality though, russia was cementing its claims to the territories by turning more than a 1000000 ukrainians into russian citizens. even the leaders of the so called republics were reported to have taken russian passports. they joined vladimir putin,
2:11 pm
united russia party. after russia launched its full scale invasion, february talk with republics was soon forgotten. it was the russian flag, and not the separatist colors that was raised in marable. officials running occupied ukraine, made life increasingly difficult. the people without a russian passport. opening bank account, drawing a pension or taking a teaching job, all these things and are virtually impossible without one. and for those wanting to get in and out, there are fewer options than ever. hundreds of thousands left in the early months of the war often risking their lives crossing the front lines to reach ukrainian hill territory. recent days, report suggests russian authorities have blocked these roots attempt. it would seem to cut these regions off from the rest of ukraine, presumably good waste vanya, perhaps putin, wasn't lying back in february, when he said he didn't want to walk by ukrainian territory, nor use violence. many believe he expected ukrainians to welcome russian troops,
2:12 pm
allowing him to install a friendly government for the whole country. taking slices of ukraine wouldn't have been necessary, as it is potent, desperately need something to show for tens of thousands of russian lives. for now, for ukrainian province is the best he can do. and d w as nick conway, who filed that report is with us in here. nick, you've been covering this conflict from the beginning. you were there, including russia's annexation of crimea in 2014. how would you describe the trajectory that this conflict has taken and where things might be, hey, while definitely there was always a sense here and key of that this was gonna happen sooner or later. there was never sense that russia had really given up on its plans on biting off more of ukraine than it had in 2014 where it took the crimean peninsula. there was just no
2:13 pm
different phases where it seemed like the russians thought they could get further with diplomacy at the beginning of volume as against his presidency. i think there was a misunderstanding in moscow. there was a feeling that they could somehow brow beat him as a political novice into making the concessions and basically giving up on all the points the russia really cared about. but as soon as that became clear that that wasn't going to happen, i think the many people were just counting down the days and, you know, wondering when and under which seconds i see what actually happened. now the actual beginning of the war, you remember there were those warnings from the white house talking about 16 to february. the dates were named. well enough, even people who were convinced that this would happen at some point, didn't really want to believe that it was happening. then. they'd been a kind of show run, a mock run the year before where russia had brought lots of tech and soldiers to ukraine's borders. but nothing had happened. and they were kind of hoping maybe gave their best interest to their best instincts. rather, that this would be the same. so when it did happen, it did take quite a lot of people by surprise. i remember i was on
2:14 pm
a train heading east to don bass on the day that that night that war started. and all the people around me even were you could hear bangs going off in the distance. people just kept sleeping, wouldn't get off the train, just didn't really want to engage what was happening now that we're 7 months in. i think there definitely is a feeling here, mom and many people. this is for the long haul that this is not going to go away. there is no diplomatic solution until one of the sides basically can't go on and people here and you can't lease a very confident that with western support. if that was the sports stands up, if that continues on the scale that has been so far that ukraine will be the one with more stamina that russia eventually under sanctions pressure under pressure from its population, you are not happy about mobilization will eventually have to pull back and at least get back to the borders of ukraine as they were on the 24th of february. and this day does mark an important juncture in the conflict as well. we were just looking at live pictures there for moscow, where vladimir putin is about to formalize russia's illegal annexation of for
2:15 pm
regions in ukraine. we expect to have that signing ceremony taking place very soon . with me in the studio, of course, we still have our chief international editor, richard. what did protein get wrong about the viability of waging this war against ukraine? because it's really not going the way he imagine. yeah, i think it's pretty clear that he underestimated 2 things. at the beginning of the conflict, he underestimated the ukrainian will to stand up to him. as we just mentioned earlier that there seems to be no rush and hope the you training government would crumble very quickly and the military simply wouldn't fight. that of course, did not happen. this is really pulled ukraine together in a way, a greater than it has ever pulled together before as far as we can see. and also he is underestimate about. nick just refer to that weston a will to support you. great. and that has only strengthened the better when you
2:16 pm
train has done this is been, you've seen the kind of the political inspiration almost, that, that ukraine's for success in fighting back against russia has spread around europe and, and in the united states. now what putin is now hoping to do with this annexation and, and these nuclear threats that we were just talking about earlier, is that me, he is trying to deter the west from sticking to that kind of support. he really wants to chip away at that support to ukraine, to try to invoke is fear of nuclear conflict. and he's also counting on what looks like being very difficult winter here in europe with possible. sure. digits of energy, particularly natural gas, also stemming from, from russia's actions that he's hoping that this will, will chip away at that support for ukraine, which could potentially open up a weakness he's aiming for. but at the moment, as things stand, there is no sign of that. and in fact,
2:17 pm
the more brutal his conduct this will get. that seems so funny to be galvanizing western simple few crane, but that will really be put to the test in a difficult winter. richard, thank you so much for now. our chief international editor richard walker, and joining us there in key, of course, our corresponded nick conley. now, rushes war on ukraine has contributed to soaring gas prices in europe. fez richard just mentioned, there is an energy crisis here is handed energy companies, record profits. today, european union energy ministers have agreed to introduce new windfall taxes on, on revenues of those companies in a meeting in brussels. each member states have agreed to impose extra levies on power producers. european companies will have to return a share of their excess profits. skyrocketing energy costs have contributed to
2:18 pm
inflation, which has reached a record high of 10 percent across the rosa. now we have more breaking news for you, thought georgia bella has learned that a coup attempt is underway in burkina faso. a last and heavy gunfire were reported near the presidential palace state tv went off air briefly following the reported blasts, roads in the capital. what to do, who have been controlled are being controlled by troops. this comes after the military seized power in a qu last january. and we're now cutting straight over to moscow where we're seeing president vladimir putin addressing the crowd there. he is about to sign a decree announcing an illegal annexation of 4 regions of ukraine.
2:19 pm
there is a celebratory occasion there were seeing the assembled guests. he could do that signing ceremony. russia is declared that it will annex for regions of ukraine that cover about a 5th of the countries territory. this illegal annexation follows a so called referendum a set of referendums in those 4 territories. the referendums were carried out, even though a war is under way in ukraine. this reverend, these represent a so called referendums to violate international law. as of course, this annexation does to this is the 2nd annexation of ukrainian territory. since 2014, that was the year that russia also under similar circumstances held a so called referendum there on the crimean peninsula, annexed that from ukraine. if you would owe
2:20 pm
you he at jamarion we have but that's what it is that good little yet always that yet though amos cousin opens up, it opens up what abbey selma up. but if you're just joining us, we are just picking up a bit human him of those live pictures from moscow worth data. russian president vladimir putin, he make up a little bit, is announcing a lien in the annexation of more ukrainian territory video you'd. we see that, but it is when you say you, they'll eat the show, it is due when the white with a very young now returning to the breaking story that we were just announcing there appears to be a qu, underway in the west african country of burkina faso, there has been a blast near the presidential palace. troops are on the streets. we can go now to a journalist, fin burkina. faso in the capital was due to henry wilkins. henry good to have you with us. tell us what's happening there now. yes,
2:21 pm
so really confusion is still raining as a moment. there have been soldiers out on the streets in the center of the city since this morning. many of them wearing scheme off locating the road into an area where many government buildings, all the state broadcaster, is the french embassy as well because the state broke off that has been off this morning. a lawyer has been radically coming back on that to show programs that are not related to what might be a key that's taking place. i've just been seeing report just moments before i came on at the station may have just come back on and we might have an announcement from the, the president's office, but i'm a little on confirmed to the moment, but certainly at this stage it has many of the hallmarks of a,
2:22 pm
it's only 9 months in the last 2 here in, in became a faster with the military take over the country. and right now this all feels very, very familiar. henry, it's quite a volatile situation there, obviously, and as you say, it's confusing in many ways, but is it clear who is in control of the country? i mean the subsidy, not player at the moment as we say this, i'm just looking at my find before i came on there, i was seeing that they may have been a, an announcement from the president's office. so i know you sent me a moment it's, it's certainly not clear. so conspicuously, the government hasn't come out and said, yet, you know, that there is that there is or isn't a key good is taking place in, you know, this, this situation is been going on for, for at least 6 or 7 hours now. so yeah, any,
2:23 pm
any voice from the government, so kind of calm speculation has been conspicuously absent so far. henry, thank you very much. that was journalist henry wilkins there in the capital of burkina faso, who i could do and with me here in the studio is my colleague tommy ala pito. he's got more honest developing story in burkina faso, tommy, i know you've been monitoring or whatever has been coming out of burkina faso in terms of information. it's very difficult to get a clear picture of what's going on. what are you hearing from your sources on the ground there about the situation? well, as has been mentioned, the, the gun fire, the, the blast heard by near the presidential palace the disruption, the military presence on the streets. disruption to the national state broadcaster as well when these kinds of things happen in these kinds of circumstances. i mean,
2:24 pm
if it walks like a coup talks like a co, it probably is one, we don't know about the status, whether it has, you know, what stage of the qu they are in right now. but that clearly is an attempt at a mutiny right now. we know that the military did over throw the civilian president in january, rush, cowboy, and so has been a lot in the past few days. just last week. the head of that military genta was at the un general assembly defending the coo in january. and again, not last week as well. he dismissed the defense minister and took that role on himself. so clearly there is something going on that, that some kind of disruption or uncertainty within the military itself. so it's clear, the power is being contested in some way. in burkina faso. you mentioned that the, the last 2 was in january. how have things been since then? have you seen any rumblings of discontent and impossible forces that may try to try
2:25 pm
to maybe launch a crew that we're seeing right now? i think i think that's part of what we're seeing it even just as, as recently as of yesterday that we reported protests against the government in parts of the capital y got to go a part of why this happened in the 1st place was because of that he had he violence going on in the country. it has been going on since 2015, the military complaining saying that the government was not doing enough to support them against this. she had a violence, but it's clear that not much has happened since that the coo, this new administration has not done any better than the previous government. and that's already causing disgruntlement. among the military. we've seen lots of attacks on military convoys in different parts of the country. even as this you had a violence continues, thousands have been killed, more than 2000000 people displaced. and so all is not well in the country and it's no surprise. we're seeing the situation at the moment. any idea where this is going to lead me because it's, it's extremely volatile,
2:26 pm
extremely difficult to get any idea. people are wondering, is it, will there be any chance for stability to return to work in of us? i think it's difficult to say at the moment in the past, a lot of people would look to the regional body, west africa, regional body echo us to say, you know, maybe they would have some influence. but in the past, this qu, as well as a recent ones in neighboring mildly, we've seen, the equus has not been able to influence things the way it normally would. and if anything, if sanctions that it imposed in an attempt to deter these, cuz i'm not really been effective. so i think we'd have to wait to see how the, this current or whatever this is at the moment how this ends up. and then to be able to look to the future, told me thank you very much. rhian size told me love, you know, from the w. news brings up to date there on what appears to be a qu, underway in burkina faso. you are watching
2:27 pm
