we have different situations at different parts of the front line around hard keep, the ukrainian forces have been able to push the russians back almost to the russian borders in some areas and in other areas quite far away from the city. which means that the city is out of artillery range and that's why people are returning to the city because it's now less, it's being less it showed less than before. and that's, but basically this due to this offensive, which seems to be quite successful in don boss, which is further east. the situation looks a bit different. fighting is fears there. and we have, in the past few days, seen some gains by the russians, not breakthroughs, but the russians are still on the offensive, although things might not go as planned for them either. the ukraine is, are resisting, but nothing is decided there yet. it's still a very intense battle. russian troops have withdrawn from northern ukraine,

3:09 am
even that has become risky after the withdrawal of russian forces, as you can see, they have left behind a lot of land mines, unexploded munitions like this one. and now they pose a threat to farmers who need to work on their land, but also to all the civilians who simply accidentally happen to step on one of these here in the forest or in their backyard. it will likely take yours to the mine ukraine, as the war ages on me, how yellow explains felicia sophisticate, one month of war equals one year of d, mining over civilians get blown up by these traps. words those who have nothing to do with any of this and never wanted to be part of this war in the 1st place that wasn't brought to part. one of them had physical injuries were he'll say, but he must cope with the mental impact to glibly bouquets. one can i say when you speak to a person who's and a minute or 2 later, you understand that this person is not alive anymore. this is very heart difficult,

3:11 am
feels good for them to open up even though things are still weird. but i'm happy to see that everyone is enthusiastic. most importantly one's died of being tired. so we just happy to be outside and see if we can make it work, i guess will never be normal, but will establish when you know, of course, we have to be vigilant and still take care of ourselves. but i'm feeling positive and got a feeling people out and about here in cape town, seem to share most ignore the rules and don't wear a mask while indoors. this despite rapidly increasing numbers of infections, but even viral adjusts and not ringing the alarm bill, because about 80 percent of the population have already developed some immunity, mainly due to previous infections. the big round of natural infection and increase in coverage of vaccines is really, really been very helpful. is tisha, those 2 things that the immunity is important. boosting that community with the vaccines natural immunity and then vaccines is very important. we really need to get most people vaccinated this, especially as early data on the new or me concept variance be a for and be

3:14 am
still getting a photo of the black hole was a huge challenge because it just won't hold still resign kindness be that it's like a little baby bouncing around. it's hard to catch an object. so to less what i'm farming was, it took 2 supercomputers in the usa on germany, 5 years to generate images of the black hole. it is covered by gas and dust in the milky way. and that made the imaging even more difficult than capturing this. the 1st ever picture of a black hole from another galaxy researchers are hoping they'll be able to capture moving images of black holes one day. but to make that possible, more specialized, powerful telescopes need to be built. as a reminder of the top stories fallen view. moscow was accused finland of tiny its border with russia into a line of military confrontation. after finished nita's announcement country would apply to join nato matri lance has promised to finland the swift accession. croesus,
