2:09 am
twitter crown was clearly so some of your fighters are greasing bullets with pig fat with a message. the muslim brothers in our country, you will not go to heaven, go home, please. you will not be allowed into heaven here. you encounter trouble. go home please. that kind of thing makes you look like neo nazis. the way to wooden prostate fogged recall muslims from as there was ran, fighting for us. let me give you one example. in my unit, for how many muslim from azerbaijan he is fighting like us. but when people think of the as of battalion, basically internationally, they do think of ne, announces you guys have an image problem, how you dealing with that role. ok, so low because russian propaganda a 5th column on that spread all over the world. it's not a surprise there. they created these nail nuzzy image for us. so now we are speaking publicly come talk to us and you'll see we are not the as of battalion understands, it has a neo nazi image problem, but to change it will require support from the rank and file,

2:12 am
the big reasons that poland has absorbed the majority of refugees coming from ukraine isn't just because of its proximity. it's also because of the refugees necessity. many are coming by foot. and up until now, this has been the only pedestrian crossing from the border, trusting refugees pile into buses that take them 5 kilometers away to an abandoned distribution warehouse. children are often alone as their confused parents search for help. but even the volunteers aren't sure who's running the relief operation looks like people are able to help, but we don't know how to help breathe. i'll know what to do is like a no thick mix. no plan was like i love it chaotic, chaotic, a lot. local authorities admit no one is checking to see those showing up are who they say they are and they say it's not their responsibility to check. it sluggish
2:13 am

2:15 am
that we had through california. it's transitioned over the other side of the rocky, so snow over the higher ground rained for places like phoenix with the hiv 21. but this is much needed rain for the desert, south weiss that see soon the frank assessments what are the political risks of bending russian oil and gas for west on leaders or sanctions on russian energy exports. harrison was informed opinions. france is not abandoning to fight against jetty, still resumed media. they're going to be acting from leisure and from chad critical debate. could china actually help in russia's invasion of ukraine in depth analysis of the days global headlines inside story on al jazeera? ah
2:16 am
ah! you're watching al jazeera, a reminder now about top stories. ukrainian military officials say they've reclaimed at a pin that from russian forces. a city north west of kia has seen heavy fighting since russia began its push towards the capitol last month. at least 5000 civilians have been killed in mariposa since rushes invasion began. according to the cities map also says up to 200000 people, remain trapped in the besieged city. a fresh round of talks between russia and ukraine are due to begin in turkey. both sides will meet face to face in istanbul, tomorrow. well, let's take a closer look now. are those upcoming talks with william courtney?
2:17 am
he's an adjunct senior fellow at rand corporation and a former us ambassador to georgia. he joins us live now via zoom from washington. a put simply, what are the prospects of any kind of breakthrough on these talks when previous talks of achieve very little? not very good. so russia, for example, is worried that there is not a perception of sufficient russian bargaining strength. you know, the international media portray ukrainian forces as holding off russian forces. so say that russia has actually begun to lose the war. so russia seems to be now wanting to concentrate, it forces in the eastern new crane, where it has a greater relative advantage. and probably in order to try to get a victory somewhere, but eventually there to strengthen has had to go, should we see no sign on the battlefield that russia was beginning to pull out
2:18 am
troops, which might signify that it would be willing to negotiate an agreement. so just how far apart are the 2 sides the in terms of the wide ranging sticking points? well, for example, on this issue, where russia still is trying to pursue victory on your credit, it hasn't given up to teasing k of. and that has really been my name up to now present zalinski of ukraine has spoken of a willingness to accept the neutrality status. but only if all russian forces are withdrawn from the crate. so that's just how far apart the 2 sides are. russian forces are everywhere in the grain, trying to make games. zalesky a say, no, see far, until all russian troops below. so what would need to change on the battlefield
2:19 am
itself? you mention to, to sort of progress matters in terms of negotiations. if russia were able to see a larger area and eastern or crate, it may have more confidence that they go. she ations, it would have strength to achieve some concessions from your credit for granting understand poor. there's no sign your credit and want to give out friday. they think they have done quite well. don't do international military experts like you're creating a fighter. so both use the equipment effectively that the rush is provided and they have shown unusual courage so far. no. russia game, somebody, make sure that doesn't look like enough for progress on negotiate and she's far ok, william courtney. we leave it there. thank you very much indeed for your time.
2:20 am
you're welcome. but let's bring you some of the days other news now. israel says a strong message has been sent to iran by landmarks summit. it hosted, involving the u. s. and for our countries. there's also a discussion of reviving peace talks with palestinians, but they've described event as an illusion. harry force it reports. now israel says it, but this summit together in a few days. nonetheless, it clearly wanted to convey maximum symbolism and significance in the desert. kibbutz once home to israel's 1st prime minister, that we'd been korean, the foreign ministers of egypt, bahrain morocco, and the u. e. along with the u. s. secretary of state espoused friendship and shed goals 43 years ago when egypt and israel made peace. unfortunately, we lost those 43 years of knowing each other better of walking together and
2:21 am
of changing the narrative that many generations of israelis and arabs had been various. israel's foreign minister said this 1st meeting would become a permanent for him, but he also advanced goals for the here and now this new architecture, the shared capabilities we are building, intimidates, and deters. i'll common enemies 1st and foremost, iran and its proxies. oh, there was shed condemnation of an attack on sunday by suspected i so linked gunman that killed 2 is really security forces personnel on the widest security picture. the u. s. secretary of state stuck to his script. not bending to israel's opposition to a revived iran nuclear deal, or he did though, raised the palestinian aspiration for statehood. really, these regional disagreements are not a substitute for progress between palestinians and israelis. one of the issues we discussed today was how countries involved in the abraham accords and normalization,
2:22 am
as well as those that have a long standing diplomatic relationships with israel can support the palestinian authority in the palestinian people in concrete ways that was echoed by the arab foreign ministers most explicitly by egypt, the united or during these discussions, we did highlight the importance of the israeli palestinian peace process, the importance of maintaining the credibility and the viability of the 2 state solution that for israel and the city and state to the side by side in peace with the recognized borders of the city and state in accordance with the 67 lines with the east jerusalem as its capital, the palestinian leadership. however, such words are just that words. they see this entire summit in this place as an undermining of the cause for sovereignty and independence. the palestinian prime minister focused on what was happening inside israel region. why has to be that
2:23 am
that there's your helicopter shop, are normalization meetings without ending the israeli occupation of palestine are just an illusion of mirage. and a free reward for israel? ah palestinian president, meanwhile, had his own diplomacy to conduct welcoming jordan's king abdullah to ramallah on a mission to con tensions a head of ramadan said, i'll just hear a southern israel. neither abraham in the occupied west bank tells us more now about what palestinians thought about the summit. very few people we spoke to here and i'm a lot even know that there's a some, it's ongoing in the negative. some of them heard the top or is off king abdullah, the 2nd arriving here in drama, la. but there is a sense of despair. they don't believe that this diplomacy is working unless they see tangible results on the ground. palestinian authority wants a peace process that and the israeli occupation is also disappointment in the
2:24 am
street. many palestinians say that they feel that the world is sympathizing with ukraine, but they're not showing the same sympathy with the palestinian people who have been under occupation for decades. they say that they want to see the world world israel accountable when it comes to its crimes against the palestinians. the supreme court in honduras is authorized. the extradition of a former president, one orlando hernandez to united states hernandez is wanted by us, prosecutors on drugs and firearms charges. he denies the accusations, the conservative politicians held our fists from 2014 until early this year. impeachment proceedings have begun against to peruse president pedro castillo. he appeared before congress in the capital of lima to face obligations of corruption has to use 8 month old government has been marked by crises. he's changed more cabinet members than any other administration in recent history. marianna sanchez

2:27 am
kind of met kerry southwest about a month ago after wake, 17 people were basically lined up against the wall and then shot. and then the bodies wished away. and most of that was captured on video. and again, it's shocked people. but this is a state in which really violence can even say, spiraled out of control. it's been there for quite some time. there. it's a state that we spent a lot of time there and i've gone past checkpoints openly in main roads that manned by gum. and the actually have the call tow uniform and cultural insignia on the uniforms. quite close to the mexican army checkpoint. that's where it's got through in the state of mitra kent, when we were there a point last year, there were policemen killed by a drone that dropped explosives. mines have been investigated, they're against the army and used by criminal groups. so this is turned into, in that state, basically low level guerrilla warfare perpetrated by these different cartels with the government, british trying and scrambling to get ahold of it. vote counting has begun in the us
2:28 am
state of alabama. we're amazon work because of deciding whether or not to join the union is successful. the site could become the 1st in the u. s. to do so. don't engine reports, not from best buy alabama. the amazon workers votes now being tallied, we'll decide whether organized labor can make a comeback in the heart of the anti union south. the vote counting that began on monday marks a 2nd battle between a corporate behemoth and pro union activists in bessemer, alabama. employees rejected joining the retail wholesale in department store union last year, but the national labor relations board rule that amazon unfairly influence the outcome and called for a do over election. that's in part because the company set up a mailbox, it looked like a voting booth, giving some workers the impression amazon itself was running the election. we've turned a lot of nose into. yes. it's once they got the information. ah, that was more impactful to their lives. so yeah, they're on board with the union's leaders,

2:30 am
the company has been calling workers in for mandatory meetings to explain to them why they should not unionize. the company's perspective is that it works better with employees when it does so directly and not through a 3rd party. but many pro union workers say when that happens, it's the company that sets the rules. one alabama worker was confident enough to take aim at amazon's billionaire owner, who also owns the blue origin space company. it's not really worth it to stay with the company who doesn't care about me as much as they care about. just be those going to the moon. it could take weeks to count up to 6100 ballots before it's clear. if workers here have opted to unionize and whether organize, labor can gain ground deep in the heart of dixie. john henderson, al jazeera bessemer, alabama.
