2:15 pm
be settling down russia has begun to withdraw troops from the ukrainian border after a major build up over recent weeks and western powers were concerned that russia planned to aid moscow separatists in ukraine's east a cease fire was signed last year but outbreaks of fighting it become more frequent in the past few months we have 2 reporters covering the latest developments on either side of the see it as also struck 3rd is in mary a poll that lies in eastern ukraine and is a vital port city and bordered smith is overlooking the cut straight on the crimean side let's go to him live birds tell us the tell us about the closure of the cut straight later today and the significance of this passage of war zone. adrian over my shoulder is the bridge over the kurt strait built by the russians in the years after it occupied crimea in 2014 built to create
2:16 pm
a permanent land link between crimea and the russian mainland now from 9 o'clock tonight russia's navy is saying that the ukrainian navy will not be able to pass under the bridge and had to its port such as mari poll in eastern ukraine russia says it's for military exercises but these restrictions will be in place until the end of october so that's a vexed stream a long time for military exercises to take place and of course much longer than you might imagine they normally would it puts great restrictions on ukraine's navies ability to maneuver and it essentially cements really russia's control and ability to control the waters of the black sea around crimea and in the sea of us off and on land when does russia expect to complete the withdrawal of or its all its troops from the ukrainian border. driving here
2:17 pm
earlier today to crimea from russia we saw military vehicles moving out from this part of this part of the country russia says by may 1st they will have withdrawn the troops they want to withdraw but not not everything is being withdrawn one unit has been told to leave its armored vehicles at a campsite about sort of 200 kilometers from the ukraine from the russia ukraine border is to leave those vehicles there until autumn so there will still be a presence here and there is this naval blockade so again what russia c did with its military exercises was to assert and show its ability to control this area. now it's done not the exercises are over but there will still be a presence in this area. with overlooking the curch strait let's cross over the sea of hours off now charles stratford is in paul what are the ukrainians saying
2:18 pm
charles about the recent deployment of warships to the house of sea out of the closure of the straight to ukrainian and foreign navies. or the ukrainians have come out and said that this is a gross violation of rights freedom of navigation they say it is a violation of the u.n. law of the sea and they are calling it a major provocation of course let's not forget what's been happening in the last couple of weeks this huge troop deployment by the russians on the ukrainian borders as bernie was saying it's understood now that those troops have begun to be withdrawn but exactly to where remains to be see. this sea the sea of azoff supposed to have joint jurisdiction between the russians and the ukrainians an agreement signed in 2003 we were out with the merry apoel maritime work with the navy a couple of days ago out on the as old sea and we heard communication from russian
2:19 pm
ships russian navy ships in the area asking the maritime guard to keep their distance so they said because of the conditions that were on that day when you speak to the navy when you speak to the maritime guard here they say well this agreement was signed in 2003 a lot has happened since then namely obviously russia's annexation of crimea in 2014 and the ongoing separatist movement in the occupied what ukraine says is the occupied areas of eastern ukraine so the ukrainian navy saying that that agreement is no longer relevant and it's safe to say that ukrainians are feeling very much of a weakened been dominated by the russians yet again russia's president putin had invited ukraine's president to moscow to talk about bilateral relations and what does that mean in terms of possible movement towards some sort of lasting cease
2:20 pm
fire or political settlement. well very little at this stage as you say hussein invited zelinsky to come at any time to moscow to talk about bilateral issues he is refusing to talk about the issue in the east of the country don't last and crimea putin from the get go has always said that these is an internal problem for ukraine of course he's denied any kind of military support for the separatists in the east of the country but he is pushing the ukrainian leadership to speak directly to the separatists and that is something that ukrainian government have always refused to do and if you put it in the context of the mix to agreement which is the potful me if you like the series of proposals that was signed in 2015 by russia the separatists ukraine in the you know it's the that agreement is being seen pretty much as dead in the water it hasn't
2:21 pm
achieved anything it's always been described as being heavily weighted in russia's favor invasion is eventually a devolution of power in the separatist areas to the separatists which by default so critics say would give putin a veto on the eternal of phase of ukraine and putin of course is very happy so critics say to keep that called plates bubbling away because according to the nato charter. no country can get nato membership with an internal territorial dispute and we all know that ukraine is pushing for nato membership as soon as possible that seems a very distant prospect at this stage how serious chance trafford reporting live from mara paul in ukraine many thanks indeed. libya has begun its covert 19 vaccination campaign it's reported more than 117000 cases and then a 3000 deaths the health care system has been severely impacted by years
