3:15 am
a 1000000 people. and it say significant port for the why the region with strategic pipelines, oil and chemical processing facilities, as well as major transport hubs. if russia manages to take the city, it would cut off ukraine's access to the black sea. i'm or luffy has mo, from at us. ha, though aly thought it out that involve harvey. we've been hearing sirens in odessa here where we stand. i know that the ukranian army says they've down to russian warplane. this comes after a statement made by the governor of odessa, who said that all the air defenses have been put into action along the black sea coast. these statements imply that a new batch of missiles and aircraft have been received by the ukrainian army in the city. at the same time, these statements may also explain precedents, zalinski warning, and how that russia may strike odessa using warplanes just on a bench. zalinski said that odessa has been warmly welcoming russian tourists for years. but now it's come under russian bombardment. hell. and he also said, if russia bombards the city for it will be a historical crime unknown and
3:16 am
a war crime, i did the, the desa is the heart of tourism in ukraine. it receives millions of tourists annually. the majority of whom are russians. i mean, it's also important to note that the center of the city has not come under attack so far home. it's only the outskirts of the city that have been targeted, a locality zillow, but many ukrainians adjoining local defense units to protect their country from russian forces audible. hm. it visited a village in the ne pro region and east in ukraine, and spoke to one of those units under rows of eastern ukraine, their dose taking their children to safety. an endless log of cars trying to reach to close his border. it will take days in their dose thing behind to defend their country. like these men, we met near the village of men. they know the forest well. they usually go hunting here, but now it's time to dig trenches. philip sand bags and build bunkers in case the
3:17 am
russian soldiers will come their way. ah, they're part of the locally formed territorial defense units. they include season men like any k, not his real name, who 1st joined in 2016, to fight the pro russian separatists in the east of the country garrison near priscilla. the piper that you're asking about our mood, if we really to defend ourselves after this treacherous invasion of ukraine, women, children, and the ugly suffering homes are bombed at night. of course, the army is very angry about that if we didn't provoke and we didn't want the school, they came to us and we ready to answer. he hopes that the russians could be slowed down. but these handmade spikes with similar positions are being built a bit all over the ne provision and has become even more urgent now to have them completed. because the region has become the 1st stop for those fleeing the russian
3:18 am
advance from either the south or the north east of the country to honda. at the village, ludmilla is busy cooking 200 meals and the menu to day rest sonic a hearty soup that will be put in jars and taken to the checkpoints, and trenches where her husband is also on duty. for some of these women, this war is hitting close to home. acela's son in law, is in the regular army on a front line. she can't reveal who did that? my daughter is keeping busy, like me, just to not go crazy. it's our country. we have to protect it. we will leave by thought. what can i do? we are all in the same boat. and what can i see about the soldiers who came to our country to kayla and pretend they didn't know that they have been here for more than 7 days. and i still don't my, back in the forest, the territorial defense gets ready for the cold night ahead. the russians are still
3:19 am
far away. but this is a war of mistletoe rockets that are devastating cities and villages. and here, there are no signs of modern weaponry. if could repel the onslaught for most ukrainians, the only safe way is to go west and get as far as possible. but of the hamid algebra in eastern ukraine. when a russia has worn countries against hosting ukrainian military aircraft, the defense ministry says they will be regarded as being involved in the conflict. mr. jim, we know for sure about. she couldn't combat aircraft that previously flew to romania and other border countries. we draw attention to the fact that the use of the input network of these countries as hubs for ukrainian military aviation with the subsequent use against the russian armed forces can be considered the involvement of these countries in the armed conflict. let's bring in my connor in washington dc. it might now the appears to be talk of poland,
3:20 am
a providing ukraine with plains. what's the likelihood of the honey there is indeed, there is indeed the secretary of state has been talking to us talk shows. he's on a trip to europe that president. and he brought up the issue of poland, providing planes to ukraine, saying that there's been discussion with the u. s. to back fill the aircraft in poland. in other words, the polls move their craft into ukraine and the u. s. back food, those aircraft with its own supplies in poland. so this is a development. but at the same time, the secretary of state making very clear that no moves are going to be taken without full discussion among all the allies. this is the beginning of discussions with poland. poland itself may have to have discussions with nato on a broad front to discuss this whole issue as to whether or not to move planes into ukraine and the u. s. making very clear that it would backfill those pains. this is
3:21 am
something that the secretary of state says has been discussed with the president and his cabinet. he also says it was a point of discussion between president biden and president lensky when they spoke on the telephone list. for the evening, but this is what entity by the what the secretary of state at to say we are on, we're looking actively now. at the question of aeroplanes, the poland may provide to, to ukraine, and looking at how we might be able to backfill should on decide to produce those but 2 hours of supply. those plants can speak to a timeline, but i can just say you were looking at it very, very actively. well, another issue that the secretary of state brought out was the issue of oil sanctions. now the u. s. has been reluctant to impose oil sanctions on russia. however, it does appear that there is now
3:22 am
a beginning of discussions with the us and its allies in terms of imposing oil sanctions. certainly, and congress says be moves to do so. the is a bill under discussion to create a bill imposing oil sanctions on russia, which would be the instrument should the us decide to go ahead with such a sanction. but it's a politically sensitive issue already within the u. s. has been a marked increase in oil prices reaching the highest level since june 2008. and any moves by the by that had ministration, which would result in a greater increase in fuel prices would certainly have a marked political impact within the u. s. or it might thanks about my kind of in washington d. c. more than $200.00 children to be moved from an orphanage in se ukraine, after russian troops attack to nearby nuclear power station. they were in the town of zeppelin, yaeger, and such have been terrified by the sound of constant arid sovereigns. you are finished, director is travelling with them by train to bring them to safety in neighboring
3:23 am
poland. what, you know, what should be put in a saying that he is doing something here, but he is simply killing people, simply killing people. i don't understand why the russian people cannot believe that we are being bombarded, that we and our children are being killed. it is very hard. i'm sorry, we don't want to leave ukraine. we love it is so hard. but unfortunately, we must leave. we really want to come back with our correspondence and buzz rob is following the refugee situation at the border crossing between ukraine and poland. and he's back to philly. poke randy the united nations high commissioner for refugees. it's very difficult to even listen to their stories. days and days of travel in the cold from their bomb cities to seek safety here in poland. i saw the same 2 days ago in moldova, in romania it's all over,
3:24 am
but poland this is taking the brunt of this enormous avalanche of people. 1.5000000. as you said, just today we reach this terrible figure. and the what we also hear is that hundreds of thousands are on the move. so, and this is the prediction of the border guards here, who by the way, are doing a very good job. and they predict that the flow will increase not decrease in the next few days and perhaps beyond now, as you said, 1500000 people have already crossed. it hasn't even been 2 weeks. your prediction of 4000000 you were saying earlier might be too small in estimation, and it is a country of more than 40000000 people, a country that is currently under siege. what are your long term predictions for what might happen, or how much worse do you think it's going to get? is there any way to plan for it? it really depends on the conflict. if bombs continue to rain on cities,
3:25 am
people will leave the yesterday or the day before i can't even remember in moldova . many people told me that they were leaving odessa all. this is not under attack because the sirens started the a resounding and they're so afraid that they leave. so it really depends on that. that's why it's so important. here is a lot of talk about humanitarian corridors. that's very important. we are in my organization like others are in ukraine, will participate in any such operation to bring any relief to anybody who is trapped in the cities. but we need more than that. we need is his fire. we need a cessation of hostilities or protests against russia's invasion of ukraine, have been held in multiple countries with calls for western pals to do more to broker peaceful into the violent min one in russia. more than 4200 people were detained at rand. 2 war demonstrations in several cities. they've barker post now
3:26 am
from london, with a crisis in ukraine, deepening on a daily basis. concerns are growing here in london and in other european capitals about the direction of travel, of this incredibly unpredictable war. as you can see, the campaign for nuclear disarmament is out in force or the placards calling for a stop to the war. i come from lithuania, i feel like nato is doing everything they can. i do not necessarily think they should send they troops to ukraine. i'd leave just yet. i hope we can help with. i'm ignition support my me. i intelligence i'm from west coast. it's terribly painful. with crying every day, my sister there, my nephew in key, if you me, basement mom showed the city with family. and it's terribly painful, it's unbelievable. but people of ukraine are very strong. you know,
3:27 am
if you think you think that western powers could go further than they have done, oh, definitely definitely in what way. but firstly, to stop the god coaches, the gas in oil from russia, because this is the most important, i think, i believe there is global disdain for russia's war in ukraine. this is catholic storm, a former soviet states, still heavily under the influence of russia. oh, this is the chilean capital santiago, where people are calling for an end to the violence. yes. in russia there have been courageous acts of defiance in multiple cities. this is saint petersburg. ah, and this is moscow where police are out in port another. the kremlin threatened to jail demonstrators for 15 years, and it's illegal to call the invasion of ukraine,
3:28 am
anything but a special operation. oh, on the edge of red square, to protest to sing the ukrainian national anthem before being dragged away. so large numbers of russian suppose to the war and now fleeing back country squeezed by western sanctions and persecuted by the russian states. yet, many of these anti war demonstrators went over the edge of an a business that we may not be able to pull ourselves back from time. now say many of these demonstrators for western leaders to help broker but almost impossible political solution to help bring us all back from the bringing me fokker, al jazeera, london and protest against war being held across latin america to raise bowers at one rally in argentina. we're here in the center of when i cited were hundreds of people have gathered to denounce the war ukraine. people here are calling of
3:29 am
latimer, poking a war criminal, and they're demanding russia, leave the ukraine even the most accomplish at, at 11 to get it like we have come here to support all of those who are suffering in ukraine. i have family and friends over there, and this is very upsetting after 2 years of the pandemic. and now this system, it is unacceptable that element, a message that will protest like this one are happening all across from latin america in mexico and other countries in the region. in the past years, russia has expanded its influence in latin america to investment through the distribution of the sudden v vaccine. doing the corona virus pandemic. among other things than leaders, we didn't have their own agenda and they have usage of the leverage of what the united states, the war in ukraine had divisive american. why their government running like with people what trying to remain under other countries like
3:30 am
argent tina, are demanding an end to the war. pope frances is described the violence in ukraine as a war, rejecting russia's description of the conflict as a special operation. the leader of the roman catholic church says he sent to cardinals to ukraine to work towards peace. the pontiff call for return to negotiations more humanitarian assistance. ah. so this is our desert, these are the top stories and russian forces are continuing their pushed towards kiefer heavy shelling and said towns close to the capital. at least 3 people reported have died while fleeing the tanf open. civilians in the besieged ukrainian cities of maria, pole of villanova, are facing more uncertainty after another sci fi collapse. russia and ukraine accused each.
