. k. k. a bad sir. many here are indicated that the reasons for turkish and or turkey's objections could be more of the domestic issues or for instance, as restrictions on weapon deliver it to turkey. after buying a russian made or a defense systems for as for instance, the u, as a decided to impose sanctions against turkey thought maybe that is the reason. but here anyone is confident that there will be no turkish veto. and what's the perspective from russia? while russia has threatened to retaliate in the case of a membership of finland and sweden, but they seem to be dialing down a bit so they have suspended deliveries of electricity to finland. for instance.
they are, they have also threatened to move more troops to the finish border, which is a long one. however, we also have to say that to the russian army is at the moment, very busy in ukraine. they have suffered a huge loss is there. and according to nato military officials, they're there and aggression. the war has lost momentum in ukraine. so no one here, i think, as a thinking that russia could treat tale age by a, by a talking finland, t w's alexandra vietnam. and thank you so much. now the ukrainian military claims to have driven russian troops out of the area around car give you cranes, 2nd largest city regional authority, say the shelling there has stopped, but you crazed president says his forces elsewhere lack the means to tip the scales in their favor. let him is zalinski told of visiting us senate delegation,

are you in? russia launched fresh ground and air attacks in the eastern doughnuts province aiming to deplete ukrainian forces and destroy their fortified positions. the russian military seems to have an inexhaustible supply of machinery and men. president philadelphia, zelinski said that the outcome of the war would depend on support from europe and other allies. meanwhile, russian forces still haven't managed to defeat the last ukrainian fighters in the southern city of murder. you fall. families of the soldiers hold up in the us of style. steel works are asking china to help negotiate an evacuation of the wounded dumb objective ins. enough bounded what goes on, there is no longer a war, murders are taking place there, but i can see hundreds of wounded with no limbs and no anesthetics but a divine. while new bombardments inflict new wounds on already wounded fighters when they, they're exhausted. and just below the line of life,
so we want them to be re skewed, mahatma, about equal to vala many government. she said that for the fighters, trapped inside the steel works, surrendering is not an option. as she believes the russians would execute any captured members of the as of regiment or the w that is bullying her, joins us now from give. what's the latest situation there in cartier? what we're hearing is that the russians have almost driven the ukrainians have almost driven the russian troops out of the area just as just a very small trip along the border where the russians, the troops still i and we also hearing from observers, although this needs to be confirmed that are the russians have started to orderly retreat from the area. that would be the same scenario as we have seen and key of wednesday, ukrainian army gets the upper hand. the russians quickly get out of the area and may be the troops will be sent elsewhere. the main battle to come is now in the
area on bus. and on the side of all of this rushes blockade of ukrainian ports. and the black sea is affecting millions of people inside and outside of the country. what are the here authorities planning to do about this? just to give you an idea, an estimate is that ukraine feeds 400000000 people worldwide. so this is very significant for, for many countries, there are uh, plans to ship the grain out by or by road, by rail, et cetera. but there are many problems because there are no road network. no, a rail network can ship out the same quantity as the ports can. moreover, some of the tracks that lead to was to port that would be available for this. they lead through bella rows and bellows is, of course, on the russian side. so many questions here, it will not be able to compensate what they're shipping now. and what is, what's been the reaction to ukraine winning the eurovision song contest. this has
been seen as a huge sign of encouragement, especially considering that it was the popular vote that was so clearly in favor of the ukrainian a song and, and that was clearly in support of, of ukraine. this was, of course, of course, a big political component and zalinski. the president said that next year ukraine is planning to hold the se in maricopa which by then, according to his words, would be liberated and rebuild, of course, that they are mit, lots of questions, whether this will be possible. but a ukraine is taking this and, and zalinski as a media savvy president is, are you, is, is making use of this huge symbol of support that the european audiences have sent to ukraine to w mathias, bullying her in care for us. thank you so much. well, let's get you up to speed on some other stories making headlines around the world.
