12:02 am
the weather, settled then sunny for most, but cloudy in the east and west with the threat of showers. and a quarter to will take a look through today's papers, -- good morning, we start with some breaking news this morning, and it's been reported by the city council in mariupol, that russian forces have bombed in our school their, or 400 residents had taken refuge. it comes as the mayor of mariupol says thousands of whether presidents of the better city have been forcibly taken to russia, a practice he has compared to the second world war. he says it's hard to believe that in the 21st century, people will be forcibly deported to another country. now, well sky can't independently verify the claims, russia has said it's sent convoys of buses to remove people from the city. in mykolaiv, the search
12:03 am
continues for marines missing after a rocket attack on the base. dozens are already feared dead. from then, martin has our first report in the morning, it does contain pictures of dead bodies. >> they were killed while they slept. two rockets which hit these military barracks with devastating accuracy. the bodies of around 50 soldiers, possibly more, now buried under rubble. many were new records who had recently enlisted to fight this war. alexander says he was sleeping here when the russian missile struck. >> there was no more air to breathe, i put on this mask and sat down close to the floor. took my gun, and turn on the light on my phone, it wasn't until i got outside that i realized what happens. >> it's possible that the death toll could be as much as 200. for now, fellow soldiers are
12:04 am
left to take through the debris, trying to identify their fallen friends. mykolaiv is a port city one of several now, caught up in a battle for the south, which appears to be intensifying. in mariupol, a city surrounded by russian aggression, there is not much left. homes, cars, streets, destroyed. >> when i left mariupol, it was the first day of invasion, it felt like the most brutal hell. but now, what they do now, when russians do now is just complete extermination of the whole city, of this civilians. >> there are reports now of street fighting. russian troops are said to be moving closer to the heart of the city and those left to defend it are desperate. >> leaders of the u.s. in france, you promised us air defense systems. what we received is not quite
12:05 am
it. look at the city, this is only part of the city that has been destroyed by enemy planes, by the plains of russia. you plummet is that there would be help give us that help. >> the obliteration of cities like mariupol is a stark symbol of what this war is becoming. a war of attrition, destroy to conquer. ukrainians are left hoping that peace talks will it amount to something, before more cities and up looking like this. nick martin sky news, ukraine. >> well, speaking of overnight, ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy, said the seizure mary opal will be called for years to come, with what he is kind warcrimes by russia. >> the blockade of mariupol will go down in the history of responsibility for war crimes. to do this with a peaceful city, as the occupiers did is a
12:06 am
terror that will be remembered for centuries to come and the more ukrainians talk about it to the world's, the more we find support. the more russia uses terror against ukraine the worse the consequences for it. >> cities like mykolaiv in the south of ukraine have been a key target for vladimir putin. but russian tactics mean that is not just troops suffering a heavy losses. >> in the south, we're seen both russia strength and weakness. it's weakness because it has failed to deploy its ground troops in an effective manner. for example, take the capital kyiv it's failed to encircle kyiv, it's failed to get its ground troops into kyiv, it's failed to take the capital. when we see happening in the south is a bombardment of the cities with indiscriminate, dumb bombs as they're called. bombs that have no precision to them their attack came civilian and military targets with no real care, but it's a tactic in
12:07 am
order to break down the cities, in order to rare them down in the hope then they will be able to go in. that is russia's military weakness, if you like, the fact that they've had to resort to those tactics. but there is also a strength albeit and unpalatable strength that. that is, that russia still, despite all the losses it has taken, despite the ukrainian resistance, has considerable depth of artillery and artillery reserves that are coming to call upon. and western intelligence officials i've spoken to believe that they can continue that tactic of bombardment of cities indiscriminately for a considerable length of time and we are talking weeks. and so as i say despite ukrainian resistance and despite ukrainian success in some areas, this conflict,
12:08 am
potentially, unless it's a diplomatic breakthrough. this conflict can go on for a lot longer still. >> millions of refugees have been fleeing the fighting and heading to poland. but now, for some, the draw to be back home is outweighing the considerable risk. they know they will face if they return, skies mark stone reports now from the border with poland where he has been speaking to some including women and children who are heading back into the ukraine,. >> the train station in this polish border town is where you'll find most of the refugees here. >> they arrive daily and with them such mixed emotions. the relief that safety brings, but uncertainty too and along in for the homes that they've left. sonia is just a teenager, but has a role now beyond her years. her ticket is for a journey with her younger cousins westward, they are from kharkiv a city destroyed.

12:10 am
over on platform five something we have not expected a long line of ukrainians going the other way back to ukraine, back home. this family arrived two weeks ago, now the draw to be home outweighs the considerable risk that they know they will face. i just want to go home, lisa tells, me when you're at home, everything is better. nearby, we meet valentina. >> we brought your mom and your baby here to safety, and now you will go back. >> yes. >> this man and her husband volodymyr, went on holiday to asia before, now they're back in no hesitation. >> how are you feeling about going? back >> good. i'm glad we. >> glad to be with your family again? >> yes. >> and you will stay there, and your family will stay. lots of people are leaving now, but you want to stay.
12:11 am
>> i want to stay. >> tell me why. >> because my country. >> so many stories, so many different emotions, and one war which drives many away, and yet pulls some back. mark stone, sky news, on the polish ukrainian border. >> well, russia's defense ministry claimed yesterday that it ever used a hypersonic missile, a weapon that can trouble five times the speed of sound to bypass defense systems, if confirmed it would be the first time russia has used it in combat. i'm joined now by a nicholas williams, a former senior official at nato, and the uk ministry of defense. nicholas, thanks so much for talking to us this morning, this sounds extremely worrying, what exactly is this hypersonic missile? >> well it's a missile that travels so fast, and so low, that it cannot be taken out,
12:12 am
cannot be destroyed with by existing systems of air defense. and so, it is accurate, it is fast it is destructive, and it is for horrific. but the most significant points i think is why have the russians use this. yes, their strategy of stalling, but they want to send a signal that any air defense systems, introduced by nato allies, supplied by nato allies to ukraine will not be effective and they want to wear down the morale, and the confidence of the ukrainians. >> why did they use more of them, though? >> well, they can use more of
12:13 am
them, but they have limited supplies and they want to use them effectively according to a strategy that they believe will be effective so they will use them as effectively and as sparingly as they can, but to take out significant targets. >> is that because they're also very expensive? >> well, it helps that they are expensive, but they will -- the russians will calculate how long this can possibly last, and there is no point in using these missiles, when as your correspondent said they have masses of artillery. so they will use it selectively, and sparingly, but with great effect and great political
12:14 am
effect. >> so who else have this kind of missile? >> only the russians have this particular kind of missile, but every advanced country has that this island development. >> and can it be -- canoe clear warhead got put on to it? >> not specifically, but the russians do have nuclear warheads that they can use, and missiles that they can put on nuclear warheads. >> okay, so how concerned should be, is this a game-changer? . >> it's not a game-changer, it goes along the lines of the russian strategy, revive strategy, which is to grind down the opposition and take
12:15 am
outs significant towns, particularly in the south, and particularly in the east. and so, it balances, or puts the balance towards the russian strategy of grinding down the opposition, ukrainian opposition. >> do you think it's working? >> well, i think it's working slowly we but what the russians have to take into account, is that the west is trying to bolster ukrainian defenses, and
12:16 am
there will be a nato summit on thursday, in which president biden will fly across the atlantic sea and demand that the allies step up their assistance to ukraine. >> okay, nicholas williams, thank you so much for talking to us this morning. >> thank you. >> now, in other news, we are in the midst of the biggest cost of living crisis in a generation. it's something that the chancellor is expected to address in a spring statement on wednesday. sky news has spoken to families of disabled people who say they are being driven into debt trying to afford everything from extra washing, to the electricity needed to power vital equipment, now they're calling for your support, she reports from dudley. >> for hours each night, these lights dance around his

sky news breakfast, our top stories this morning, mariupol city council says russian forces have bombed in our school where 400 people were taking refuge from the missile
12:36 am
attacks. president zelenskyy says the siege of mariupol will be remembered for centuries to come, why he called it warcrimes from russia's military. ukrainian defense -- pro-russian political priorities, including a major opposition group in parliament. now, in the group of an housing crisis, the irish government says it wants to introduce a vacant property tax, because there are well over 100,000 vacant or derelict properties in the country. stephen murphy has been to county male, a area with the internet 99 vacant or derelict houses, but no available properties to rent. >> i walk down memory lane in county mayo, and elder murphy grew up in this house. now it's boarded up, just one of nearly 200 vacant properties in her hometown. >> born and raised actually in this house, it wasn't the house
12:37 am
like it is right now, it was quite the house and balloon road, when i grew up here it was such a fabulous home, my mom and dad insomuch work in the gardens, and the guard and sheers living in the u.s. for 28 years she wants to return to her hometown to look after her elderly parents. but she can't find a place to live. >> it's very frustrating, i'm constantly on hold of the real estate agents, there is nothing out there. there is zero. >> in val and wrote a town of just 2800 people, there are 199 vacant or derelict properties, and zero homes to rent, unfortunately there are no properties,, and we have a huge amount, every day, of people looking for rentals. unfortunately, just no supply. ireland, in a middle of a housing crisis, has a huge number of empty homes, around 122,000 at the last count, in a
12:38 am
country were only 20,000 new homes are built each year. >> county mayo has the highest number of derelict houses anywhere in ireland, it also has the second highest rate of vacant houses. but this is a national issue, ireland has one of the highest vacancy rates in the world. so what has been done about it? >> the government likes talking about carrot and stick, but the carrot is the new grant of 20,000 euro, for some of buying a new houses. the steak hasn't arrived yet. >> why do we still not have a vacant property tax? -- good question we, will have won this year. but there are many new homes newer, existing not being used, but we will be bringing for attacks on vacant properties this year that's part of the stick approach, with the carrot with the which is the grant. i get it completely, i'm frustrated myself as a minister in relation to it, but we're gonna do something about it, and it will be as soon as possible. >> for now, the bizarre
12:39 am
situation will continue, a country that simply doesn't have enough homes to meet demand, where tens and tens of thousands of houses lay empty and unused. stephen murphy, sky news. >> now, the russian invasion of ukraine has led to rising costs of fertilizer animal feed and fuel which are affecting farmers and are set to be passed on to consumers. there is a warning that increases in food prices are inevitable, as production costs soar due to the war in ukraine, comes as farmers warn that the impact on their industry has been seismic. joining me now is john -- hughes a farm manager in greenville. john, thanks so much for talking to me this morning. how exactly does this work? for people who have no idea about farming and the food chain, how does russia invading ukraine mean that our food prices go up? >> well, basically it's had a very direct hit on input prices. so fertilizer, seed, diesel, as
12:40 am
we all know has more or less. doubled in a very short space of time. this doesn't give farmers much confidence to invest in what they're doing, and actually the decision making crisis around making purchases is now extremely complicated, because the market is changing on a near daily basis. some raw materials such as cereals like wheat and barley, oats are becoming increasingly difficult to get hold of, which make essential ingredients for animal feed, but also of course we'd for mailing, barley for beer the list goes on. >> some farmers have warned, as i said in the intro that the impact has been seismic. have you already felt that? because we're only three weeks into this invasion. >> i think seismic is a great way of summing it up, to be honest. yes, we, felt it more or less straightaway, the price of
12:41 am
diesel going up, the price of feed for cattle going up. and like i say, the availability of it is what's becoming the main concern. >> so, what is going to happen. if this continues, and it looks like it is going to, what does that practically mean for you? >> i think for us and the industry, it means that food is going to become more expensive but high food prices doesn't necessarily mean lots of profit for the farmers, because as i just said the import prices has gone up so it removed what was already a fantastically tight margin. so depressing as it sounds, i think food prices will come up which will hit everyone's pockets, and i think availability of certain foods will also become increasingly difficult. >> which ones in particular? >> well, we can see already the
12:42 am
price of beef and meat is going up. i think the likes of bread and other serial based products will start going up, probably in the next month or two. i think a lot of processes and retailers are probably trying to hold out for being the last one to put their prices up because they know it will hit the consumer straightaway. >> tom, a presidential advisor to volodymyr zelenskyy was speaking yesterday and said that ukraine may not produce enough crops to export if this year's sewing campaigns are distracted by the invasion, and they said they have enough greater food reserves to survive the year, if the war continues won't be able to export grain to the world, and there will be problems. how much do you know about the sewing campaigns in ukraine, when do they start to sow the seeds, and do you think that we
12:43 am
are going to be impacted by their lack of export? >> so for spring crops, there are strained to do their work now, it's a really crucial time of year for them. the ukraine's fantastically fertile land, and they farm it very very well, so they'll start a lot of their work now the uk is actually only around 60 or 62% food self sufficient. so about 40% of our food is imported, the ukraine is in the top ten exporters of grain, so if you're one of your top ten suddenly can't export grain, it puts a huge amount of pressure on where it's gonna come from, something has to fill that gap with. >> and what is that gonna be, tom, just briefly? >> we are going to have to open up some more conversations with
12:44 am
countries further afield, none of that is easy. >> so it interrupts, we are running out of time, can we do it hearing? >> there is just not enough land plain and simply. >> there is not enough land to make us believe self sufficient, we do need a certain amount of imports. >> okay, tom, that's so interesting, thanks so much for talking to us this morning. time for the weather. >> look forward to a brighter skies, the weather, sponsored by qatar airways. >> more sunshine to come, there's a blocking high over scandinavia, as it's approaching -- it's gonna be a chilly start to the day, but with widespread blue skies. this cloud over ireland in the southwest, as well as patchy cloud over eastern scotland, in northeastern england. most places are gonna be, dry temperatures are gonna be close to average for the time of year, but later winds it's gonna feel
12:45 am
pleasant it's going to make it feel a little cooler there. >> the weather, sponsored by qatar airways. >> still to come on sky news breakfast, i feel like i need some toast, actually, we're also gonna have a look at today's papers with the broadcast, and journalist and broadcaster -- broadcaster -- why choose proven quality sleep from sleep number? because every great day starts the night before. the sleep number 360 smart bed is really smart. it tracks your circadian rhythm, average heart rate, and breathing rate.

12:47 am
12:48 am
at the papers now, with -- and journalism brock castro laetitia. jim i, do you want to can kick off at the sunday could telegraph, why do they say that boris johnson is frustrated with russia sunac. >> so, boris johnson has decided that loom nuclear is the answer, he talks about dashing to nuclear though,
12:49 am
which doesn't seem quite correct, that process would take 10 to 15 years by the time we got approval on planning. with this issue, nothing is a quick fix but this whole article does beg a couple of things, first the issue itself is the right way to go arguably, 30 years ago was the right time to start making us a completely energy independent firstly like, america's. but also to look at renewables, and not to be reliant on other countries, but especially autocratic regimes for energy. but of course, the environmental issues to. it's a huge issue, but also it speaks a little of the tension itself between sunak and johnson as well, sort of shaping up to be the judicial chancellor fuse, -- i suspect he might have his eye on moving in next door, but all eyes will be on him on wednesday to see what he comes up with. >> that's going to be live on sky at 11 am, we're gonna have
12:50 am
that. did you want to comment on that? did you want to have a quick word on that? >> only one sentence, which is i have a sneaking suspicion that sunak really wants to be chancellor forever and ever, because he just loves doing is matt's homework and he just loves to do that. there's a weird personality clash between cement like johnson, he's very bombastic, and his ambitious public person. and someone like, sunak was much more conscientious person, but he does sweat ambition. >> you're giving me anxiety, pretty eta. let's talk about this. this is an awful awful story and one that keeps coming up about child traffickers, human traffickers targeting people fleeing this war. they expressed page ten, pretty dina. >> this is a shocking but not very surprising report to anyone who's worked in or studies or refugee migration,
12:51 am
there are multiple supports from concerned humanitarian bodies, and charities and across all the countries bordering ukraine which is all about traffickers, child exploiters, sex traffickers, you name it, targeting vulnerable children the first area they've gone to is ukraine's orphanages where there is concern that 100,000 ukrainian children from these orphanages, over 90% of whom who are not orphans, in fact, so they're there for reasons of poverty and other family issues are untraceable on trackable. not only that, but the traffickers are also targeting all those vulnerable refugee children who are crossing points at front lines, cities, station's, they are traumatized, they are worried, and the traffickers are using genuine good samaritans as a kind of cover. so the response to assist the
12:52 am
refugee effort, the relief effort in ukraine has been extremely notable. everyone knows people who have come over with food and supplies now, the traffickers are pushing is just these kind of people, and they're taking advantage of people in particular, but also families and women with children who are looking for safe passage, and they're offering them with the genuine samaritans are offering them. food, transport, safety, shelter for the night, as we've been reporting all morning, putin has been very shameless and very overt in targeting civilian areas are, school's schools, maternity hospitals. residential areas, and traffickers are, as they always do in a war, stepping in to take advantage, for reasons of exploitation. i don't need to spell out exactly what might happen to these children,. >> in the first couple of weeks we spoke to a charity and they set 150 people had just disappeared, they had no idea
12:53 am
where they were, it's beyond belief. let's look at the telegraph, page six and this is about the number of soldiers, russian soldiers who have died, just talk us through this. >> it's another harrowing story that also highlights these senseless-ness, and sort of shame of war. so essentially, 2500 russian soldiers, their bodies have been transported and nights, and obviously the kremlin don't want the true number of casualties to be made public, so this is their way of trying to dispose of bodies, and to minimize the scrutiny so it's absolutely tragic. now, what is so sad is that so many of these soldiers were born in 2003, their children, they are from poor regions of russia, they've been conscripted, and they are cannon fodder really. of course they will have been sold an idea as well as why they're going to conflict which
12:54 am
is completely untrue, so the whole thing is horrendous we don't know the true number of casualties the cranium say it could be as high as 15, 000, the russians are reporting something like 400. who knows what the truth is. one thing is for sure, putin made a huge miscalculation, i don't think he thought the resistance would be so strong, and that he be losing as many soldiers, and he's lost a huge number of generals as well. . in many ways it's going terribly badly for him, and the consequence of that is him upping the ante with the more severe weapons that we touched on earlier. >> i'm going to make an executive decision here, i'm going to go to the love story in the daily star, we need something to lighten the mood up a bit here. >> this quote was the best, ghosts since lockdown are getting bravery and braver it seems the unhealthy, the hotel, is no exception. >> i'm glad goes new's lockdown,

what is a story about? >> ghosts have been around for a really long time they probably lived through the spanish flu, and maybe the medieval -- like all of us, they're very frustrated after two years of the pandemic, and they're getting even more belligerent, they're yelling at people and shaking them out of their beds, their dressing in old tommy close and standing in quarters and saying to people. mine are more 19th century, and not 1970s flares. >> do you believe in ghosts? >> i want to believe. >> i certainly don't, gemma do you? >> no. >> okay, bloodied shenzhen might have a fantastic sunday, thanks very much. >> thank you. still to come here on sky news breakfast, we will have more on the latest reports of the bombing of an art school in mariupol, where according to
