screeching east ukraine. but on a victory that's long overdue for his forces. forces the defense minister wants to expand. he reveal plans for 12 more military units to be added to the military districts in western russia, in response to finland and sweden applying to join nato. that extension needs more man power, and the russian lawmakers may have the solution, this se, tomorrow on friday said it's considering a bill that would allow russians over the age of 40 and foreigners, over the age of 30, to sign up for the military. the website of the russian parliament lower house, the state duma said the move would enable the military to utilize the skills of older professionals. familiar with the use of high precision weapons and military equipment as what russia calls its special military operation near the 3 month mark . there is no indication from either side of an end to the conflict door such

12:06 am
a sort of deeply symbolic psychological significance to the, the siege of the steel plants and marybelle? i think that there are pizza barnes that matter in the context of a larger war and the price, but russia has had to pay you to take control of mario. bowl has been well in excess of anything that it's planners could imagined before the war started. and i go ultimate surrender of the green forest depending it was inevitable. eventually you right out of the things you need to stay alive, let alone fight effectively. but they looked at a significant loss as they slowed the russian offensive dramatically. and i think that there's, there's great symbolic value for ukrainians in go. the fight that there are forces put up in mario pole and in the still larry and paula is not far
12:07 am
from areas controlled by those pro russian separatists. isn't it that how would it enable the creation of a land cordele from la hands to daniel and down to crimea? just remind us of maria polls strategic importance for the russians. sure, it is certainly a gateway to that line bridge that you're referring to. it's crucial terrain that they had to control, but it, in and of itself doesn't open the door for us. there is still a real estate that russian needs to gain control in order to put in place a sufficiently secure land bridge and to secure control of the entire territory of the on the next can to hans are so called republics. what are the challenges and the physical obstacles rusher is facing in the east and dumbass region?
12:08 am
one of the missing pieces of that puzzle. i think there are. there are 2. primarily one is geography. there are rivers they still need to cross and the ukrainians have shown a fairly significant ability to locate and target russian attempts to do assault crossings of rivers. ah, those are very difficult military operations among the most difficult, that an army is asked under take on a routine basis and the ukrainians appear to have a good competence in making sure those river crossings are heavily contested. on the 2nd is simply though lack of men, material units on rushes already committed the bulk of its available army to the fight and ukraine. they suffered terrific losses if you believe the numbers coming out of the ukrainian defense ministry. russia has lost nearly half of the inventory of tanks that they had on active service when they started the,
12:09 am
the war offensive action of the kind that they are envisioning requires continued inputs of forces in order to create and maintain forward momentum on. and i think that they're going to face the challenge in feeding sufficient forces into this operation in order to bring it to up a rapid conclusion. but i suppose the way it says that you describe also kind of demonstrates russia's ability to absorb attrition in this conflict, to be able to tolerate and withstand those losses which as bats. a capability that the defending force at the crating fight has doesn't have because obviously they're much smaller. well, i think that the, the cost to russia in terms of personal material in this fight has been order magnitude greater than they ever expected it to be. and replacing these personnel
12:10 am
train personnel replacing this modern equipment is going to be, but it's going to take time. i'm, i'm read a report that said that russia's now spending the equivalent of $300000000.00 a week on its military, which is roughly twice what it was spending before the the war started. that is the sort of pace of investment they're going to require in order to make good these losses on the ukranian side on absolutely the losses they've suffered are affecting their, their performance. they have the advantage of the lifeline that the west has thrown them on. nobody is giving russia new tanks. nobody is giving russia new artillery pieces. nobody is giving russia more ammunition on ukraine is receiving that support from united states, from nato, from from dr. duke of sources. that gives us the ability to,
12:11 am
to replenish it's a it's arsenal. oh, with a little more, a little more reliability than russia currently as thank you very much for sharing your perspective in analysis. with this david shot back from the rand corporation journey statham washington. thank you very much. so families of the as all fighters have been in tacky, seeking that seeking help to ensure their safety. many say they're worried about their face of the ukrainian soldiers. some cas yoga has more on this now from istanbul, among the wise the fossil fighters and mario pole. i sat down with natalie. it's got her husband is among those ukrainian fighters who were evacuated from those so steel planned by russians. natalia and 3 of her friends have been in the turkish capital on car for the last couple of days, seeking support for the safe evacuation of their husbands and sons. let's listen to

12:33 am
modern technology for vehicles to artificial intelligence, but a global chip shortage. since the pandemic has affected the availability of many of these products, 3 quarters of global chip production comes from asia. the buy to let ministration is now looking to shift some of that to the us. how will do that in my view is by working with close partners who do share our values like republican career, secure more of what we need from our allies and partners and bolster our supply chain resilience. the move is also partly driven by china's drive for self sufficiency in ship production with, with the government pouring billions of dollars into the industry. for the u. s. to maintain its technological advantage. it has to invest in computer chips for south korea. a focal point of president biden's visit is an opportunity to strengthen existing ties into a more comprehensive partnership. in my meridian,
12:34 am
i hope that today's visit will serve as an opportunity for the r o k u. s. relationship to be reborn as an economic security alliance traced on advanced technology and supply chain cooperation. president biden's visit comes a week after he hosted southeast asian leaders at a summit in the u. s. analysts say these events underscore how the indo pacific region remains a top priority for the biden administration. on saturday, the 2 precedents were hold a summit, but they're expected to discuss regional security including the d new career ation of the korean peninsula. florence louis al jazeera sol are marked fitzpatrick, his director of the nonproliferation program at the international institute for strategic studies. he joins us now from washington, d. c. and we are referring to it as president biden's trip to asia. is this really about china? well, thanks marion. for having me, much of this is about china,
12:35 am
but there are plenty of other issues on president biden's agenda. north korea certainly ranks very high. and that's one reason that south korea is the 1st stop on this trip. certainly they will also be discussing ukraine and then when they get to tokyo and meet also with the leaders of india and australia, by and will seek to reinforce or strengthen quite so quite that for democracies of the region and no curries already conducted to into content ballistic missile tests earlier in the air. is he preparing for something else with president by being in the region? you know, oftentimes north korea does something provocative, testing a missile, testing a nuclear weapon. that seems to be time with some something on the u. s. calendar, a 4th of july missile test for example. and you know, there's,
12:36 am
there's reason to think that kim, john may wish to give president by and that kind of a welcoming gift. so to speak of something. but north korea has its own time table for when it tests these devices, it has to test nuclear weapons in order to perfect them. and the timing may be affected by it, but i think they have their own time table. actually. how has the war in ukraine and the alignment between russia and china affected the rivalry between aging and washington? well, it certainly hasn't helped him at all. and there's been, there's enough tension in the relationship between the united states and china. they didn't need something else to add to it the ukraine crisis, and the way that china has cast, and it's not with russia, has exacerbated tensions. but i wouldn't over exaggerate that because china, apart from giving it to vocal support to russia,
12:37 am
hasn't really done that much to support russia hasn't sent equipment. it hasn't taken on a great deal over russia's export of oil. and in other ways, material helped russia. it's mostly rhetorical supports out my rushes performance in this war, and the sort of very, very limited gains affect beijing's calculations about the relationship and the extent to which they are prepared to support president putin. why think, you know, that china is seemed to have gained by this debacle of russia's failed military excursion into ukraine? i mean, it sees land, but it's, it's been a failure. and so in a relationship between major powers like this 11 power seem to have failed and have a much weaker military than we are. 5, china's power balance rises accordingly. but i don't think this means that
12:38 am
china overall is better off, i think in a way it's worse off because it's cast its lot with, with a pariah in the international system. china's world status doesn't increase at all from that. and i don't think there's any way that china's power increases it's kind of has to, you know, help up a crippled ally and, and waste its own resources for that mission. thank you very much. mark fitzpatrick, joining us from the w. w in washington. thank you. happy speak with al jazeera so there must arthur says that you will work to forge closer ties with china. after being sworn in as ease team was president, the independent figure and nobel laureate, has previously served as president prime minister and foreign minister. integration ceremony on friday came as the country marked 20 years of independence from
