university reading. she says the next problem for european nations could be flooding. we know with fires that actually they change the properties of the soil and they make them hydrophobic, which means that they repel water. so actually in the long run, even though the fi as a resulting from dry conditions. now, we've seen in many parts of the world like australia that when there's heavy rainfall a top on top of those fire reflected soils that you can end up with with quite severe flooding as well. so that is certainly something to look out for in these fire affected areas in grande president of a lot. m as the landscape, his sax, 2 of his most senior law enforcement figures and the most significant shake up yet since the war began. one of those to go is prosecutor general arina phonetic tova, his lead ukraine's efforts to prosecute russia for war crimes. the other ivan backing off was the head of ukraine's powerful intelligence agency. the s b u. a
3:08 am
childhood friend of zelinski has been under scrutiny for security breaches. the president says, 60 officials from their agencies a working against ukraine in russian occupied areas. and that 651 treason and collaboration cases have been opened. doug claim is the assistant director at the atlantic councils eurasia center. he says, president landscape must act quickly to find long term replacements for the 2 sat officials. so i do think that these are significant, and the big thing that observers in experts are going to be watching for is who comes next. zalinski has appointed an acting prosecutor general to replace benedict of a is not yet appointed somebody to replace ukraine's top intelligence and security chief during war time. that is an essential role. so that, that's the big thing that experts are going to be watching for who comes next. the other thing here is that while a reason wasn't given by president zalinski for why he fired the prosecutor general,
3:09 am
he said that the security breaches were the big reason why he lost confidence in his security chief, just today. ukraine's s p u head for crimea was arrested on charges of high treason and passing intelligence to russians. he is one of many high officials in the intelligence services who have been charged with these are charges of collaborating with the invaders. one of the big things that prosecutor general vanity tova, was mired in for much of her term, was failing to properly reform her office and allowing and sabotaging investigations into bribery cases and failing to properly do her executor duties. so for the prosecution of war crimes, that is one of the top priorities for ukrainians, and it's something that the international community has taken very serious interest in eating them with. so whoever comes next, the international community is going to be trying to work with them very closely to
3:10 am
make sure that there's no hiccup in making sure that these crimes are prosecuted. but on the front line roches military says it's destroyed. one of the advanced rocket launch is given to ukraine by the u. s, but it's retrieved claim. this video shows the russian strike on a ukrainian storage facility in the dot net screeching. russian forces have also bombed a number of ukrainian towns. moscow wanted, stepping up its military operations. ukrainian officials say 40 people have been killed since thursday night. the entire front line is being shelled. an investigation into the response to the of all day school shooting has accused police of poor decision making and systemic failures. and the $400.00 offices were at the scene of the attack, but failed to take action for more than an hour. the shooter killed 19 elementary school students and 2 teachers before he was confronted and killed by police. vesa gate is found that office is failed to prioritize, saving innocent lives of their own safety. everyone who came on the scene talked
3:11 am
about this being chaotic. the training suggests that when you cut the chaos should not happen inside the school, there should be a tactical commander, someone who's taking lead on dealing with the actual in the hallway with there should also be an overall commander. somebody who's an overall command flowing the information, making sure everybody knows what is going on. the fact that there was no overall commander outside the building where there should have been. one should have been known by many at a minimum there was multiple opportunities depending on the relative training and experience of law enforcement officers to at least ask more questions or offer their guidance to try to remedy the chaotic situation and make sure there was effective overall command there was a lack of effective overall command a day. my can has life or a sound washington d. c. mike,
3:12 am
does this report reveal anything we didn't already know? what does the most comprehensive timeline as to the bins at our blaze? some minute to minute exactly. what happened, but most importantly, it broadens the investigation into the layers of command who are being held at fault within the report. now initially blame or the bulk of the blame was a portion to the school police chief, peter dondo who was on the scene. however, this report says that when it became clear that he was incapable or didn't want to take action, some of the, some 370 odd officers who were on the scene should have taken over. they should have been a command established. but more than that, there was also a failure at the federal and state level to create command, create a command chain in the school, outside the building, and at higher levels in terms of somebody monitoring the entire picture to be able
3:13 am
to direct operations on the ground and also to be able to pass information on to all involved. this was a complete, systematic failure. the report says, and in that it is important in terms of broadening the accountability from one single school police chiefs on the ground to a number of federal and state offices who the report says should also have taken some kind of action. in particular, establish a clear chain of command. so if this is a singling out people and you're talking about border accountability, what was the purpose of the report? well, the drafters of the report, the 3 legislators who presented it saying what they wanted to do as well was to look at what went wrong during this tragic event in order to prevent it from happening again. now, they looked at the sequence of events. so where the problems were in an attempt to
3:14 am
create a knowledge, so should such an event happen in the future, then there is a blueprint on which to base the actions that would take place. the draft is also brought to an important point that school protocols not observed create a full sense of security among the public in their report. they found, for example, that protocols were ignored. many of the doors were left unlocked against school safety protocols, and this allows the government to freely enter the classrooms. now the full sense of security is very important and once again broadening the context. the report says that this is not unique to russ elementary, where the shooting happened. it could well be the case at a large number of schools, both within texas and within the country as a whole. and this has to be looked at as well. on the question of apportioning blame, though the investigators did not directly say that they will continue the investigation
3:15 am
into seeking accountability among those high in command. but they did indicate that this is not over, that that will be a process in terms of delving further into the actions of some in federal and state law enforcement or rather than lack of action among some in federal and state enforcement. my can are in washington dc. thank still head on al jazeera, the plane carrying arms from serbia crashes, and grease killing 8, sparking and investigation, and road tripping trough. calmest on the tourist top fence booming, travel becomes easy. ah, the journey has begun. the fee for world camp is on its way to cat hook your travel package today. hello, we've got more very heavy rain on the carts for south career at the moment. we got
