1:15 am
were in the northern outskirts of my uncle city. and you can see just behind me from what remains of those apartment blocks the destruction here is almost total. this area has now been on the russian control for about a week, and this car park of this supermarket distribution center has been turned into a humanitarian aid distribution center by the russian. you've got people queueing here for food aid inside. there's more russians being distributed. everybody is registered on a computer database and then that given rations, which they told us to last them for a month. and it's clear just from where we are here, that there are many thousands of people still in murray awful. they've decided to stay after now more than a month off shelling. but this is the 1st aid. any of them have had since
1:16 am
the fighting started on there is enormous need here for a system that is very clear. or russians are being told a different narrative to the rest of the world that a mere putin tightly controls the nation's media, which is reporting that ukraine is full of nazis or persecuting russians. the invasion is completely justified. well, let speak to elaine, i mean, a russian academic based in london, whose opposition to the war has put her old with her own parents back home. elaina, thanks very much for joining us on the program. tell us about the situation that's developed in your own family between these 2 disparate narratives. and so having me, julie, my diary says, i've always been pro put in so political views have been quite the opposite. and we've kind of have this. we've always had this pastor agreements of thought about not talking politics so that we can be around each other. but this past weekend
1:17 am
they called me and they said that the horrified at my on a war because it isn't social media. that, you know, i've disgraced my my family by fighting with the west and being non patriot already . they used to be proud of me for all my achievements and now they're ashamed of me . and this is one of the hardest conversations i've ever had. because we're all hurting for the same reason we've peaceful people, we hate violence, but we have not one single point of reference in common. so troy says to them, put in as a war hero. and to me putting as a war criminal to them. ukraine has instigated the conflict, and russia has had to step in to stop it. to me, left, russia has lawfully occupied a sovereign territory. elaine, amongst, amongst your, your friends, you know, in london and beyond, do they also share this, differing it, you know, narrative does it go beyond, go beyond your parents,
1:18 am
my friend's side with me, my friends, have a clear picture of what's going on. and if it's russia's who's being the aggressor here, but a lot of russian people will have the symbol of used to my parents and elaina, how much is russia's kind of military power and history, a corner stone of that sort of national identity and pride like how much is that still a kind of stall war of the russian identity? i think there's a lot of die, but it's will very vague. as you know, as far as propaganda goes, a lot of a lot of people still believe that you know, rushes ration you still get up from, from its knees and go, you don't extend this territory basically got, you know, go get, kick, someone's. but so there's a lot of that rhetoric going on on,
1:19 am
but it's hard to say because there's no independent poly in russia. so we know that probably as, as much as 50 to 70 percent of people do support what russia labels as the limit it military operation in ukraine. but it's hard to say what the reasons for that support is and how much the national meritus feeds into it ill. and i guess the question that i see being asked a lot on social media, particularly as a why don't the russian people in large numbers just stand up and, and say, know what is behind that? and just trying to explain it to our viewers that people don't have that sense of that, you know, freedom of speech resistance, whatever you want to call it. i think a lot of it is about not trusting ah, existing institutions,
1:20 am
whether it's media with the like, freedom of speech. so a lot of my friends don't believe that anti war rallies will actually help stop the war. they know for a fact that they will be threatened with prosecution for coming out, not just the civil disobedience but for you know, potentially force state treason. so people either stay silent or leave the country out of helplessness. i don't think a lot of people believe that, you know, coming out in masses and thousands, millions and rally against the world will actually stop it because everybody knows that the decisions are being made by one person elaina molina joining us there. elaina, thanks very much for deepening our, our understanding and your perspective. thank you. thank you. and most of the 4000000 people who've left she crane are women and children, as of course, men of a certain age have to stay behind to defend their country. as kimberly,

1:22 am
the women filling them, most are staffed by women. the number of refugees fleeing with in europe is unprecedented since world war 2 with the majority heading to poland. and just like more than 70 years ago, it's once again women who are stepping up to assist a lot of women in this particular munitions factor in the scenes are reminiscent of europe in world war 2. when women replaced men in factories. so they could fight. things are different now, but also similar in ukraine. president vladimir zalinski has asked civilians to fight alongside ukraine's military. and men under 60 must stay in ukraine to take up arms. so it's women keeping things running inside ukraine and in countries like poland where they escape from, from women usually work at home with children. and now they are involved. they want
1:23 am
to win this war. they are doing what they can, and this is in a woman's nature to help them get along. the conflict in ukraine is fresh, so dated is not yet exist on just how many women are now working in traditional male non combat roles. but it's estimated to be in the millions levels, glove, oh, grading. our men are fighting for us. they are brain wirelessly. you know some machine that them when you are you but they aren't the only ones just as they've brought history. women are once again mobilizing into a silent army or through them with kimberly hell kit al jazeera show marshal holland. ah, israel's prime minister says the security services will ramp up intelligence operations after 3 attacks killed 11 people in
