1:05 pm
it's on root is still in russian control territory hasn't crossed that last checkpoint, that would bring them on the ukranian side so that should they take a while still along the road. they are russian checkpoints and that the each checkpoint as we understand it are they are going to be searched over and over again. now, they are many evacuations that are due to happen today. the u. n. has been negotiating with both the russian defense ministry and the ukrainian events ministry to also evacuate civilians who are not in the steelworks. those who are left behind in moore, you pull it has put or indicated that this jew meeting points outside of the it is the city of for them to join. then a convoy to come here to you. and as they told me in the past days that they could bring up to a 1000 people out of money, you pull and then there is also the evacuation carried out by this city council of

her mother. and she was saying that she actually wanted to leave the country for a little bit, get a little bit of rest. it's very difficult for these people because you have to remember that no men of fighting age is evacuated and the russians are making sure that that does not happen, especially when it comes to the as a style as deal factory. but so either torn families and these are people who, when they arrive here, they get in that tent behind me, they get whatever they need. there's close this food, the old kind of supports they can get are they could go if they wanted to in a, one of the reception areas. some schools have been set up to bring in displaced people so they can live there few days. but then they have to move to have to keep on moving to make place for those the others to keep on arriving. but there is not one place where they're just being taken and they just stay together. it's really on a personal basis or product or back with you. the day goes on. how to handle hammered . there, thanks very much. so what is the impact of war on civilians trapped in bunkers and

and rebuild from this, this tragedy and chaos. thank you. thank you. care to explosions, have been heard in russia's belgrade region near the border with the cray. no casualties have been reported for a fire at a military site there on sunday. similar fires and explosions at russian military bases have raised suspicions of sabotaged or attacks ukrainian forces. while russia is intense via tax aimed at seizing more territory in easton ukraine. and that is the new frontline, the town of adoption, pia was targeted on saturday. 7 people were injured when a residential building was struck. it's enough from charl stratford, who has more on the east new fence from that town of pia. the russian missile slammed into the grilled only meters away from this block of flats who knows how many people would have been killed if it had been a direct hit. another attack was pulled vladimir putin so called special operation
1:14 pm
in ukraine, wrecking civilian lives. even from doors deep inside the building buckled on to the force of last. good miller has lived here in the eastern tailed of the propeller for more than 50 years off by his crafty sin whom i live here alone. as my husband was killed mining coal and my son died. i had gone out for a walk when it hit. i know how like he, i am to be alive, but i have virtually nothing left. how can i live on? i don't know. that old firmly portrait lies among the rubble books. her deceased husband used to read, stand to be destroyed. bookcase family members have come to help. look miller clear . the debrief olga holds a chunk of shrapnel. she failed on the sitting room floor floor. there was the j b m. why did they hit here?
1:15 pm
this is a residential apartment block. why, for what are the tanks? here are the soldiers. this is not a battlefield. we have a school here and kindergarten. civil defense teams attached policy sheets to one of luke villas, destroyed when those other residents throw the remnants of their belongings on the pavement below. only 7 people suffered minor injuries explosion. it's incredible that nobody was killed in this attack. and it comes at a time when, according to the ukrainian army, russian forces are preparing for a major offensive. and they are increasingly attacking areas like this one well behind the front line, close by a vast crater scarves, the woodland, where another missile exploded. the cranium military says russian forces a gradually increasing the intensity of their offensive and eastern ukraine. tattered wallpaper hangs in shawls from lou miller's kitchen wall. she says she
1:16 pm
hopes the ukrainian army can keep russian forces back. and she doesn't know what she will do. if the comb shall stop it, al jazeera, the little pillow eastern, you cried. well now european union energy ministers, a juice, hold, an emergency meeting after russia, cut deliveries, of gas to poland and bulgaria. some you member state to try to phase out the blocks reliance on rationale, gas impulse. the u gets 40 percent of its natural gas from russia, a more than a quarter of its crude oil and rushes biggest you customer that's germany, aims to be fully independent of rational impulse. later this year it's already reduced them from 35 to 12 percent. but it remained to be consumer of russian gas, but banning russian energy is complicated. not everybody is onboard hungry, relies heavily on russian gas and oil supplies and is resisting a ban over concerns of economic damage. other countries taking large volumes of
1:17 pm
russian gas and they include actually australia and slid back. yeah. so let's try to unravel all of this dominant cane, joined his life now from berlin. so dominic it is a complicated is no. tell us more about this meeting. what do we expect to the aim behind this meeting pretty clearly is to provide support to those 2 countries. you're talking about their neck to the polls until the vulgarians, who had their supplies of russian gas halted because they were not prepared to pay the russian provider in roubles, which was the demand that had been placed on many differently. you countries who are recipients of russian natural gas. that's the aim. the question is, what measures could really be brought in to try to provide any degree of security remembering as you were just pointing out to us there quite how dependent all sorts of different countries off on russia, 4 different sources of energy. be that coal,
1:18 pm
be that gas be the oil? so people talking about sanctions, embargoes and that sort of thing. the question is, what really material will come out of this meeting right now, but the intention is clearly to provide security as far as possible, but we wait to see what exactly what form of concrete measures there may be. and what about this, why to push from berlin to reduce reliance on energy from russia overall, they're talking about right. germany is concerned by the end of the year. and that's a big ass. the interesting thing here is that you might look upon the way the german government has been dealing with its dependency on russian energy as a process, not an event. whereas some countries were very quick, not just to impose sanctions on specific russian individuals, russian financial institutions. but also to embargo oil, gas, coal,
1:19 pm
that sort of thing at the start of the war in ukraine. the german government was a lot more careful about the wording that it used. the policies that had brought in, but over the course of the past few months, the level of criticism on germany from within germany, but also from without, has grown and grown and grown. and as a consequence, we've seen this government composed to 3 different parties coming up with more rhetoric, really sort of heating up the language they use and saying, okay, well now is the time to get out of certain things, which is why earlier people talked about getting as of oil, germany that is getting out of its dependency on oil by the end of the year. well, now that's going to be by the end of the summer, we know that the german view of our coal from russia equally get out of it as quickly as possible. gas is the real issue. so much gas comes here from russia, but immediately to switch it off would have a really, very serious effect on the economy. says the government here,
1:20 pm
there are still people who say to badges do it anyway. the question for this government has been, how do we deal with the way we're being criticized post act externally and internally? and so now they've started to front up as it were and say, okay, these are the time tables. this is what we can achieve. this is what we'll do, and they are speeding it up all the time. all right, we'll see how the meets mccrass's at dominic. thanks very much, dave for that. don't that came, we'll do that for berlin. warning, pres, celebrates, eat, have ended in violence in ethiopia, capital of addis ababa protests to threw stones at government buildings and police who 5 pack with take us. let's get the very latest. now with, if you can, journalist some, you'll get to choose who joins us live from the capital of i'd us up of a system 1st, we'll just stay, give us an update of what's happened if was an iep celebration that's been happening in their sab mega, open space square and named moscow square 100. since thousands of people do attend,

1:48 pm
ah ah ah, let us get on board his drama. thank you, nick. we start with tennis on the biggest names in the sport of criticized at wimbledon decision to exclude russian. i'm better russian players from this is tournaments fast up let's hear from well, number one, no joke of ich speaking at this week's madrid. master's. i think it's,
1:49 pm
it's just not fair. it's not right. but it is what it is. you know, they are entitled to make to make the decision. and now i guess it's on player council that the tour management to really decide along with the players. what is the best solution in the situation where they keep the points, protect the points, take away 50 percent of the points or whatever we had in the last couple of years. because of corona, i found that i said this to spanish media. wimbledon just took that decision, the most drastic position they could take without taking everything into account. the government did not force them to do it. i think it is very unfair from my russian teammates, my colleagues, it is not their fault. what is happening in the moment with the war and murray is also a to time at wimbledon champion. he said, i'm not supportive of play as a getting band. i feel for everyone i feel for the players that can't play. and i
1:50 pm
don't support one side or the other. when i joined by john, whether i'm from the tennis channel, john, what all the chances of play a power of forcing one button to overturn the decision? i don't think that the chances are particularly high and i think we'll then probably new going in there was going to be some blow back from the players but not enough to impact the event. well that has been very firm about this and they've, this was about 2 weeks ago. they may just announcement they've stuck by it and i think they're banking on the fact that there will be some criticism. there will be some angry players, but not so angry that it will cause them to, to rethink their decisions and speak to mental health plan on a regular basis. do you think they'd be willing to go a step further and we call that home? it's yeah, i don't, and i think this is a really lay, bare sort of tennis is our structure and who holds the cards and the truth is, wimbledon is prominent, prestigious event. a number of these players have all sorts of economic reasons to
1:51 pm
play, not just the prize money, but all sorts of bonuses. keep in mind that 2 of the players we've talked about natal brokovich are chasing history. they're in the race to be all leader at baker one. so i think there's outrage, but i don't think there's so much outrage that they would ever boycott it is that individual sport at the end of the day and there's just too much at stake to, to risk missing wimbledon over principal. ok, so you don't think that the play a power will have much in effect then better. what could the russian and better russian play as they could? they appealing cool. is that an option? you know, it's been discussed, but i think part of it is just standing. where would they even bring food? i think there's also a larger question of the optics. do you want to be in a lawsuit against wimbledon? if you're a russian player or a bell russian player, especially the backdrop of this or that. so many of us are, are so opposed to, i think it's an interesting sort of, you know, it's
1:52 pm
a great law school exam question. how would they go about challenging legally? i don't think that's going to happen for a variety of reasons. not least. it's just bad optics to be in litigation against the most prestigious event of the sport. and the men's and women's tolls have been pretty violent. and with one but its decision had deciding whether to impose penalties on wimbledon. just give us an idea of what the penalties could be. it's just hard in sort of the balance of power. i mean, it sounds crap will that hold all the cards? players are not going to miss wimbledon. there might be some way. as you heard about jose, mitch talk about where maybe some of the writing points for wimbledon will count towards the rankings. but in terms of real punishment, there is very little that the tourist can do, though they're all that by this been russia, ukraine, whatever, you know, february 24th. i mean this has been an option. and tournament up up your program. it has declined this option of banding, russian players. not until wimbledon. so i think this is
1:53 pm
a surprise to have and it's obviously not gone over well with the players, but ultimately wimbledon is wimbledon and it, it holds all the cards here. i say when, when and how it's all the cards, but you think of the w t a and a t p. need to do something about that in the future. i do, and i think that's something that bill needs to figure out a way so that this doesn't happen again. but again, you see the 4 major event, please. the 4 majors, the 4 grand slam, they are, those ports 10 polls and this is another indication that they've clearly and they knew this. they knew where they made a decision. they knew that this was an odd with both tours and they basically said, we will let the market determine what players are going to be. well then, so it's, it's a pity that we're going to attend the 2 tours and the players. but at the end of the day, we stand by our decision, we're backing on the fact that the players are still going to play. and i suspect that's what's gonna happen. so more than that from the tennis channel, thank you very much for your thoughts. anytime and be champions at milwaukee bucks
