the talks about security at europe's biggest nuclear power station is the slough. discussing plans for a safe zone after months of shelling near the facility there, jeffery to plant is located near the front line in a southern ukrainian region illegally annexed by moscow. russian president vladimir putin ordered his government to take formal control of the facility on wednesday. but at a press conference and keith grossi said it was obvious that the station remained ukrainian facility matter. that past dw conley is in cave, and i asked him what gracey said at that press conference. there was precious little in the way of detail about how a safe so would actually work. and when exactly it's going to happen. obscene. most, the jonas, they wanted to press him and busy get him to make a political statement about what the russians are doing. there about russian attempt to take over the power station and you're given the roommate of his, you and body. and given the need to talk to both sides, he avoided making statements of those kind. beyond saying that the annexation was
8:08 pm
not something that they accepted. and i think the fact that he is still here, that he is still heading to moscow soon. and still projecting optimism is, you know, basically the main takeaway. he also told me that whereas bruce, they've been to inspect his day on a permanent basis. there would now be for, i mean that's a doubling but still very, very low level. if you just imagine your, how many people work at the station, how big of societies. as you mentioned, europe's biggest nuclear power station. this really is a very, very modest mission. but all you will be to cancel the odds and jones situation where this is a position that is called c being sheltered. is it seen it staff under extraordinary pressures? it's boss, was really kidnapped by rational authority. so this is still a very, very dangerous situation. now jeffery, here wasn't the headlines this morning after russian miss isles struck the city, several civilians were killed. can you tell us what else has been happening in their latest battles to retake ukrainian territory? we're, we're definitely getting more news of the villages being taken back by ukraine
8:09 pm
forces. nick epsilon. that's also not a 1000000 miles weapons. a patricia or the details are all pretty sparse. the ukrainian military has kept a real kind of tight lid on all this and it kind of filters out to people even here and kia just a few days late. it does seem like that is accelerating the center of a panic on russian social media among military bloggers and people who support this russian vision. they've also been speculating whether ukraine might soon launch and offensive in the producer region, so that speculation that there is ukrainian tech being gathered and up on the country. but no official confirmation here from keith obviously. and it seems like jackie of is still on a roll, it still be able to push back russian forces and rushes does not able to bring enough boots of the ground in the time frames needed in those people have been mobilized. just are getting the training. if they are lining up at the front lines to really make a difference, like the national catholic connelly reporting from keith time. now to take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world. japan and south korea have condemned north korea's recent missile tests shown young earlier fide

8:11 pm
meeting of the new european political community. now this european union initiative will bring together you leaders with countries beyond the blocks borders, including britain, turkey, ukraine, switzerland, and norway. the meeting has taken place with europe, dealing with an energy crisis, and economic turmoil that's been worsened by russia's war in ukraine. our political correspondent, lena has it, is in prague, and she told me earlier what the european political community hopes to achieve. this is clearly about sending assigned to russia, vladimir putin, that he's isolated on the european continent. so the idea here that we're hearing about a lot is that europe is about so much more than you. and at the moment it does look like the lowest common denominator for all european countries. apart from russia and belarus, is that they can m russia's lauren ukraine. and that is why they have created this forum to bring together people to have
8:12 pm
a free exchange. also of talks between all the hughes and leaders, but also people who have left the use of for example, the german chancellor will have choice seized this opportunity today to meet liz trust, the new british prime minister, whom he doesn't get to see that much of the british prime ministers because of course britain has left the you. so this is about creating a platform where thoughts can be exchanged without a set agenda without the pressure to agree on a written document. and this is vital in a time of crisis. when so many things are happening at the same time, and of course, the topic of russia's war and the consequences of it, like rising energy prices a high on the agenda. can i just ask you specifically, what role germany will be playing? what contribution will it be making at the summit? well, there is a debate about whether or not to institutionalize this kind of format and an, as of essentially the father of this format, the french president in monro,
8:13 pm
my coin is very much in favor of doing that. the german government has said they don't want to have an inst another institution, but they are very much in favor of you leaders and also the european leaders to come together in this flexible format once or twice a year. but of course it's not all hunky dory. here in germany at the moment because it is under a lot of criticism, the german government for its relief package that it announced a couple of days ago that is going to spend up to 200000000000 euros to help consumers, but also companies cope with rising energy prices in some countries here are saying, okay, look, we can't do this sort of thing. so that is very unfair. those also causing a risk for the european domestic market. you're creating disadvantages. so gemini is facing a lot of criticism here. and the polish premise actually even went a step further with his criticism. and he said that germany shouldn't be dictating the use energy policy. and all of that is setting the tone for tomorrow's informal use summit. that is also going to be happening here in prague, where germany says,
8:14 pm
okay, we mustn't have a rift, a division within the u, because that would only benefit vladimir putin. but of course, the topic of energy policy is extremely controversial. all right, nina has a in prague. thanks. i much at the swedish academy and stockholm has wooded this. he is nobel prize in literature to the french author, annie ever no. l. no. as a professor of literature as well as a writer. she was born in 1940 and grew up in normandy and france. i literally work his mostly autobiographical and maintains close slates with. so c ology outside her home in paris. and north said she felt very happy and proud. and here's a quick reminder of the top news stories at this hour. more than 30 people, most of them children have been killed in an attack on a day care center in north east and thailand. authority said the gunman was a former policeman. he reportedly killed his wife and child after the attack for,
8:15 pm
