ministry spokesperson, eager con shank of oh, who briefed about the latest military developments. the russians have been a gauging the number of as strikes. they carried out over the past 2 hours, but at clearly no mention of this a ceasefire that came in once and a what is the fate of the nearly $2500.00 ukrainian soldiers that are around this plant in mary opal, the russians knots indicating whether not any of them have surrendered and whether or not they're still engaged in any kind of a as fighting that it might be going on. a, we do know that the russian defense ministry said that this is the best chance that they have in order to save their lives, to surrender, to lay down their arms. they provided a 7 hour window of a cease fire, and the russian defense ministry also said that they submitted the documents about
the cease fire to various international organizations, including the united nations, as well as the international, a red cross. and the idea is that they want to be very clear that it opportunity was provided for those military personnel to surrender. this is going to be a very crucial moments in this conflict for the russians. indeed. and they've said they've already cleared at the areas in the city. and that at this area around this plan to miracle is the last part before they can declare that they are now in full control of mariel full. they said that they have control of the ports of mario full earlier this week, as well as a number of ukrainian soldiers as surrendering of the defense. mister saying, over 1400 ukrainian soldiers surrendered to the russians earlier this week. so it will be very important to see what is the fate of the remaining 2500 ukranian soldiers in that city. alexandro val traverses editor in chief swiss
military review, explains why mario paul is emboldened to russia's plan. my opponent is an extremely decisive place, a decisive area because i owning my funds for the russians will mean a territorial continuity. and therefore, during the negotiations and agreements that will of course, take place at the end of hostilities, it will be absolutely indispensable for russia to gain this territorial continuity in order to be able to break off the secessionist republics from your credit. and it is extremely difficult to be able to bring more supplies and more weapons to the people who are to the units that aren't defending matthew, or because of course, the russian pressure is not only exercised on the city itself,
but also all of the axis that would allow for any reinforcements to, to, to get, to matter. so the ukranian strategy has not been to put all of its assets, all of its defenses in the town, but also keep a very, very strong, if you want to call it a 2nd line, which has been holding very strongly despite fierce russian attacks in the past. few weeks ukraine has managed to stage, at least for very impressive mechanized counter attacks in the car kitchen area. so that is north of the area that we are talking about. and they have been quite successful in these offensive operations. contrary to what some experts would have believed at the onset of the war. however, the military potentials for combined arms or fair in the ukrainian military.
and that will require large units and, and substantial intelligence, substantial higher power. the ability for the cranium military to mount such an operation today is much more limited than it was perhaps 2 or 4 weeks ago. now, china's economy is beat for costs in the 1st quarter of 2022. however, figures just release show, it's also at risk of a sharp slow down over the next few months. aging gross domestic products expanded 4.8 percent year on year. more than expected of the effects of new covered 19 locked downs and the ukraine war could put pressure on the economy. so just so you should, you should, i must be aware that domestic us an international environment becoming more complicated and uncertain. as we faced these challenges, we must follow the guidance of she's anything for them. so she doesn't try characteristics for
a new era and fully implement the spirit of the center economic work conference in the arrangements made by report of what the government must coordinate the efforts of 19 to response and social development make economic stability. our top priority empathy progress, falling, showing stability, and put a task of 6 assurances and safeguards front and center. i've got more on that story . joining us by skype from shanghai is than one chief economist at hang thing. bank china good. have you with us? so over all is this good news that the numbers one is bad is fed well, the number has to be the market, in fact, asia and by a very wide margin. so people do have fear that this may not be sustainable. and when you look at the breakdown of the data, it's quite obvious. there are some structural issues on the growth or bolstered by infrastructure spending, manufacturing lesson and an export to the weak spot in. busy consumption,
it actually turn negative growth in march, and in many people says, fact in the coming months. and the weakness in the consumer market will sustain. so in other words, will grow slow further, especially if we see the war in ukraine drank on the pandemic, shutdowns drive on while the growth in the 2nd quarter, my slow down quite significantly, are not so much from the war because the commodity price has somewhat stabilized all those do out of there are high level by the corporate control, especially the repetitive pattern of the city locked down has been the biggest challenge. when my look at a period of time in the 2nd quarter, a few dozen of chinese cities could implement their lockdown measure simultaneously, which can be a big damage to transportation and production, consumption and international shipping. and could be very big chaos. have we not
seen the effects yet overall of the shanghai lockdown? is that what you're saying? that in fact, it didn't really show in march because the supply chain was prioritized encoded control. we're starting a pro and the impact has become very significant on the delay in the port shipping is around the 2 weeks and it's getting longer. services and consumption are being huge and disrupted, of course, in shanghai, but also starting to show in other cities when people are having worries that their, their places might be under lockdown anytime soon. so it has started to show and it's getting more. so what does this mean for chinese annual growth, right? and this is an interesting question now because we had anticipated china to grow in the 1st quarter by less than 2 percent. for now it's $4.00. so even if the 2nd
quarter dropped to below 4 percent for the full year reaching it's 5.5 percent g d p growth is still possible because in the 2nd quarter, if china does have covered under control, for sure will see a consumption rebound in the biggest cities and that can be a major driving force on the x core to could be a downward pressure by the us economies do seem to be overheated and asian export in economies seem to be importing more and more from china for industrial inputs when their economy is speeding up recovery, so it's not entirely impossible if also the monetary expansion. pick up pace. all right, thanks so much for sharing your analysis on that thing. one. now, shanghai as reported 3 deaths due to covey. 19 on sunday authorities in the financial hub of been ramping up efforts to fight the pandemic with inflatable labs
and testing up to 100000 samples a day. the city is announced a 14 day lockdown on friday. i had an al jazeera violence sand the rest, the along the moss compound and occupy these jerusalem after israeli police facilitate a visit by rights when jews and why some obvious dispute. the election process is adding to the risks for the press in the most dangerous country in africa to be a journalist. ah hello, that will have a look at africa in a moment, the 1st to the middle east, and it's been rather hot and dusty across northern areas coffee event. in particular, we are going to see a bit of a dramatic,

worried that it might actually happen. is ro capture these jerusalem where they like to compound is located in the 967 will not keep patient. it's been a source of anguish for palestinian since lisa asia may. if what happened today is a crime because we can't enjoy our prayers. we can't enjoy our worship afraid of our holy sciences and we can't feel safe anymore. even in the holy sites. we've been coming to since we were young children, and that's because of the occupation in israeli forces also arrested to palestinians. the throwing rocks at buses with jewish passengers heading to the old city somewhere injured only adding to the tension here. john home and i was it a occupied east jerusalem plans by a far right group and sweden to publicly burn copies of the court on the lead to 3 days of violent protests in easton, nor shopping police find warning shots,
