6:00 pm
i'm not very optimistic about any kind of negotiation informed opinions. everybody tweets. everybody's on tick, tock, tick, tock, doesn't boat. you have a winter, it's going to be whole there pretty soon inside story jazeera. ah, this is al jazeera oh. you're watching the news, our light from a headquarters and ohio. edu. navigate. coming up in the next 60 minutes, ukraine's president is on his way to washington his 1st trip abroad since the russian invasion. i almost wish i did not have the some afghan female students speak out against the taliban decision to banned them from
6:01 pm
universities. mending fences. the australian foreign minister is in beijing for talks. after months of tension with china. more than 60000 malaysians are forced to leave their homes for safety is heavy, floods hit the east coast. welcome to the news hour. it's 1500 hours, g m t. that's 10 am in washington dc, and in just a few hours time from now, ukraine's leader will land in the u. s. capital to meet president joe biden. and his 1st trip abroad since russia's invasion in february followed him are zalinski posted on twitter. that he hopes his visit will strengthen ukraine's resilience and defense capabilities. he's due to address congress and hold several bilateral meetings. washington has been keith's biggest supporter and it's fight back against the russians. we have alan fisher standing by for us in washington dc. so it seems to have been nice, pretty quickly, allied and kept as a secret i yeah,
6:02 pm
i mean we know that the, the to president spoke on december the 8th at that point and the issue of a visit was raised now last wednesday, the a formal invitation was issued to the ukrainians. there was accepted last friday and then confirmed on sunday, and clearly the ukrainians and the united states of what very closely to make sure the president's alliance. he can leave the country for the 1st time since the war began. exactly 300 days ago to day that he could leave the country safely, get to the united states. and then travel by the white house came to make the point . the president zalesky will only be on the go on the ground for just a few hours. but clearly this is an historic and important meeting. he's been to the white house before he was here in 2021. but clearly there's a lot more symbolism attached to his visit this time roan given what happened 300
6:03 pm
days ago. so our, what is a presidency lensky hoping to get out of business at then? alley? well, he's going to have a sit down with joe biden in the oval office. he will also meet with joe biden's national security team. joe biden is going to announce that the united states is going to hand over patriot missiles. it's a defensive missile battery. it will go to the ukrainians, and the ukrainians will be trained up on how to use it. that will happen in a separate 3rd country that will take some time before they're all up and running. and of course, that has led to many people asking, is this the united states changing how is involved in the war and ukraine? what joe biden will say, i have probably repeatedly to day is that there is no change in the policy of the united states to getting a ball on the ground in ukraine, but the will continue to support the ukrainians through humanity and military and
6:04 pm
economic aid. that's important because when ludovic lensky goes to the hell he'll be speaking to a joint session of congress. and we know that on january, the 3rd congress will become a republican run house. and there are many people on the republican side who said that they need to think again about the support that they are given to let him use zalinski and the ukrainians. or this is let them use the landscape going in person to say thank you very much for your support, but it's got to continue to keep coming. and so the white house are saying this is sending a message, not just to republicans, but to vladimir putin and the rest of the world that the united states is behind the ukrainians. and certainly, that some things the lensky will be keen to push. because while he knows that he's going to continue fighting the russians, he doesn't want to keep fighting the americans for the financial support that he desperately needs. all right, thank you so much. alan fisher reporting from washington to see so president
6:05 pm
zalinski strip comes as the russian leader vladimir putin has been meeting senior defense officials, who's in said there are no financial limits on what his government would provide to the military. his also approved the proposal to increase the strength of the armed forces by 30 percent. the kremlin says there is no chance of peace talks with ukraine as long as western countries continue to supply it with arms al jazeera, as a mean did. army has more on the kremlin reaction to president zalinski, his visit to the u. s. i'm for lucky to kind of to not go to little tri, la, the ontario coll must go, reacted to the announcement with a statement from the kremlin spokesperson. he said, russia is not expecting any positive results from valencia's visit to the united states yacht isaiah. he also added that, providing more weapons to ukraine will prolong the conflict a while saw the spokesperson, also added the russia's position remains the same. yeah, i see condemning the united nations support to ukraine, particularly with weapons which might result in a direct confrontation with moscow. i'll walk there for regarding vermeer bruton
6:06 pm
meeting with leaders and commander of the defense ministry. he focused on the so called special operation in ukraine, and they discussed the results of the conflict biase. i put an accused nato and the united states in particular of trying to weaken russia and through the prolonged conflict in ukraine. he at why wouldn't said most trouble do its best to increase its military capability. when also added moscow is ready with nuclear matter in order to maintain the stability of russia. so the united states has been the largest provider of a to ukraine since the war began almost a year ago since january 2022. the u. s. has provided nearly $50000000000.00 in assistance to ukraine. the largest contribution has been made through more than $20000000000.00 and military support. over $15000000000.00 of financial support in the form of loans and 8th through a through the economic support fund. and finally, around $10000000000.00 and humanitarian aid, meaning emergency food and health care assistance,
6:07 pm
as well as refugees support. joining us on site as matawan, besotted he's al jazeera senior political analyst, matawan. welcome. so this visit of president zalinski to the u. s. really underscore the importance of ukraine's relationship with the u. s. doesn't to, oh, look, absolutely. and you know, my eyes go back to the time when the former president bush ankle, 2014, visited washington spoke to both houses of congress. we tend to forget that because the obama administration downplayed it, and it is really over em any much help at the time except highlighting the list of already existing help, which was very modest back in 2014, 80 years later, we have a less you're going to washed and speak to the both houses of congress. and as you just mention, already $50000000000.00 have been spent on this relationship and it has become one of the more important relationship because there's
6:08 pm
a lot at stake for washington. it basically, the by that mas ration has transformed the issue of ukraine into the most important geo political issue in 2020. well, look, we often ask, and if i just asked alan, this what a zalinski is getting out of this visits. but let's look at what the u. s. is actually getting out of fits. well, here you go. so in terms of a, me look at the timing by in and by itself, right? or zelinski will help buy them with the republicans just for sure. he's trying to pass his budget. some of the republicans are already given instructions not to pass it. and they probably have some issue not with the military aspect of the aid to ukraine, but of the, of the economic aspect of it. so they can look at that. there's also some doubts about the over all war and how long it takes. because every time you hear, as long as it takes what the say exactly, mean what it takes, what i mean,
6:09 pm
how much more suffering, how many more years, how much more destruction, how much more aid? some republicans say, well, you know, we'll just spend 50 and that's taxpayer money. we cannot, we don't know for how long and so on, so forth. so that is that for, for the, this gets also quite important because look already, it seems like the russians have weaponized winter. and clearly when 3rd is coming out, it's going to be quite heated and terms of, in terms of clashes on the war and so on. so fighting and clearly puts and understands that he could put a lot of pressure on the questions during the winter season. so zalinski needs help, it needs help to warm up your cleaning homes to rebuild some of the infrastructure, the emergence, one, hence, humanitarian age is important. he also getting the most sophisticated defense system, which is the patriot system, which few countries on around the world have the auto nato archive nato. and it's going to be quite important because they're going to be able to down,
6:10 pm
not only are russian planes, but also russian ballistic missiles. so really we are talking about major important visit. the timing is important for both leaders. and i think that's why we've heard from put in as you just just wanted to ask you, then how will push and be looking at all of this. and what do you think the message is that's being sent out by the u. s. and and ukraine. you know, it will probably be an understatement to say, puts in his unhappy he's definitely unhappy look. 8 months ago it was clear that what the russians wanted was ukrainian surrender. what the ukrainian wanted was rushing withdrawal 8 months ago. the korean want russian withdrawal and the russians want euclid and surrender. and we, we haven't really moved that flight accept much, much more destruction. so put in is quite worried because as he is admitted once and again, the russian military is not doing that well. the ashley of winning out of ammunition . what was supposed to be a week trip in to kia, to change the government,
6:11 pm
which according to the head of the intelligence with dick only a few days to finish up the entire operation. now we're entered 300 day or this week as well, right? so russia is suffering in this war. it's not doing that great in this war. and while ukraine is suffering much, much more, the russian military is not feeling well at all. and yet put him says, we need to finish. he promised his defense chiefs that it russia will end up fulfilling its objectives in ukraine again for whatever it takes, what is it and how long it will take? i think now boss sites. and you would hope that by the will talk some sense into zelinski and vice versa. but for the time being, everything i hear from washington is that they are committed to the war, not to any piece reconciliation or piece buses of any nature. both sides seems to have doubled down on their position until the other flinches. neither side is
6:12 pm
finished. okay, thank you so much. milan bershana, now on the ground russian strikes have crippled ukraine's energy facility is charles stratford has more on the impact on ukrainians in the winter from keith ukrainian president vladimir zalinski, seen him talking to troops in the front line town of buck mount on tuesday, hadn't officially lift his in battle country since rushes invasion nearly 10 months ago. and his visit to the u. s. grange chief backer. throughout the war comes at a critical time. russia continues to target energy infrastructure, causing millions of people to endure rolling blackouts and freezing winter temperatures. ukrainian military officials points to the ongoing joint russia, belarus, military exercises as evidence that moscow is preparing for
6:13 pm
a winter offensive, possibly targeting keys. the u. s. is expected to announce another $2000000000.00 worth of assistance. and a bill currently before congress would give ukraine an additional $40000000000.00 for 2023. there's also speculation. it may supply ukraine with the highly sophisticated patriot missile air defense system. despite concerns, among some us officials, the supplying patriots may push moscow to escalate. i think he's less concerned about congress than we were. you know, 33 months ago. it looks like congress is going to continue the same policies toward ukraine on, on weapons. in particular, republicans are solid, where republicans are not solid. and we're, i'm worried is budget support. and this is the category of money. it's billions of dollars. the taxpayers are giving to make sure that the ukranian states stays afloat, and that is controversial among republicans. the white house is zalinski visit on the schools, the united states commitment to supporting ukraine for as long as it takes present
6:14 pm
. zalinski says the monthly costs, the defending his country is around $5000000000.00, but standing side by side with president biden in washington, and the expected announcement to billions of dollars more in aid will be a very powerful signal to vladimir putin. indeed, charles raffle al jazeera keith, plenty more had on the altar here and is our including. we have the latest from through the president, gina below are 2 ounces, a big cabinet, re shuffle, and another strike action in the u. k. that's affecting hospitals and medical facilities across the country. ah, 1st protests have been held in some cities and danced on against the taliban decision to ban women from universities. almost
6:15 pm
almost. so in demonstrations in july about then couple people held signs, pledging solidarity with female students. girls have already been banned from middle and high school. earlier this month, they taliban allowed girls to write university entrance exams, even though many of them had missed months of classes under the ban. so women in afghanistan have spoken out against the ban. last the come on, i've been as dick up when i got close to the university. i saw something strange taliban hum. these were parked at the entrance gateway and the taliban. where behaving so badly telling us returned to your homes. goals have no right to study any more. the situation has a very bad effect on every female student work. yeah, good as you have that all goes well. i heard this news to day and i felt such horrible things. i tore up all my notebooks. this is not a way for us to love is the taliban and not allowing us to continue our study. i
6:16 pm
came to the university to enroll, but they did not allow me and i cannot express my feelings. no one can understand alamitos, cosmetic sauce deck. what are they got that was only done school, but it once again, university is banned for women. we don't want to be raised. it's shameful that the international community, the united nations and human rights groups choose to remain silent. that shadow models, let's say to hassan con, who's an analyst on taliban issues. he's joining us from islam about hassan con. welcome to the al jazeera news, our. why do you think that this decision was taken now? oh, thank you very much. i think it's a, it's not something new for me and especially those. oh, absolutely. the kind of mom policy center this i limits james think levy as

6:18 pm
over the issue off girls and women's education in the country? yeah, i think groups and women have connie network and i think you want to come to very much hard and didn't guarantee that division is within the government. those bonds would make what she ended be with the us and don't have the women you especially you might have been de what's gotten back to being in a well educated is compulsory or men and women have and in the same way. and i just didn't have the different minister
6:19 pm
who in the water with this been in the meeting by the hardliners prime minister because. 1 only 5 people, what management team and they are getting more, more packet and ship it was be that the government must be the vision and and he is not allowing that. they'd be very brief to think of time. let me just jump in there just very briefly, condemnation has come quick and fast from those in the international community. will it make any difference? yes or no? yeah, i'm sorry. i think we have our own big data. national community is not accepting us
6:20 pm
not to get us. so we are not, we are not ready accept what is the what it's getting. ok. they believe it does not to get what you can find. so the only and we went over on may of the even on time. thank you so much. thank you very much for joining us from as lama bods, i peruse president gina boulevard has carried out a major cabinet. re shuffle hours after winning the approval of congress. to bring forward elections to april 2024. so she's appointed a new prime minister and the finance minister. an early poll is one of protesters demand following the rest of former president petrocca c o. roo, who's seen widespread demonstrations on violence since kasteel was impeached. and imprison 2 weeks ago or on a sanchez is joining us from lima for her to discuss the story. so the president has changed her cabinet chief in less than 15 days. what is the say about what does
6:21 pm
this tell us rather about the new government? well doreen in the certainly it seems that to proceed in the days just starting to of to have a government if you will. after these 2 weeks of political and social turmoil in the country, she has named her prime minister. she has brought up the defense minister alberto that i love to be the new prime minister of having a chief up here in the room. he has the experience of being a minister before as a former defense minister with the former presidential young though my love of. she has kept her of her foreign minister, whose last night declared the mexican ambassador. after the mexican government gave asylum to the family of former president, august field. here, the i'll type,

6:23 pm
. 4 ratify the volt reforms that have to do with reinstating 2 chambers in hardly i'm in a house of representatives and senators also said that they have to allow the representative like may or the governors i make it to be reelected. i'm also one very important thing that everyone apparently will agree on is to reject the candidacy of any candidate that has a criminal sentence to be able to run for parliament. so that's when these reforms will be discussed in the next couple of weeks. and possibly we will see another, the replication of this volt be between the end of january and the beginning of february during thank you so much bye. the on a sanchez for that update from lima. the gum us government says it stopped

6:25 pm
. capital building attacked by a violent mob of americans. how did this happen? and who is responsible? that is what the january 6th committee set out to find out all of us here today, focusing mostly on former president donald trump, who called his supporters to washington and sent them to the capital, saying he would go with them. we fight like hell. and if you don't fight like hell, you're not going to have a country anymore. oh, he said the election was stolen. but in testimony before the committee, it was clear, he was told repeatedly, he lost the election, telling aids he didn't want people to know. he lost without objections, but what that when he made the clearest it never before seen video, how bad the violence was, how close the country came to seen its elected leaders attacked or possibly killed . several senators told to run from the mob they were walking right into. then this
6:26 pm
moment officer eugene goodman, lured the mob up the stairs. if they had turned right and walked just a matter of meters, they'd likely would have found an unlocked door with senators inside their leader. we saw how close members of the house came to the mob, making their way to the last possible escape. the interactions breached the window, and a protester were shot and killed trying to get to them. we now know how close the vice president mike pence came to coming face to face with those calling for him to be hung only 12 meters. and the committee said, trump knew that his supporters were armed, that day, frustrated that so many couldn't come to the rally because secret service was using metal detectors. i don't, i think her that they have weapons. they're not here to hurt me. take that away and weapons in the committee. her testimony to trump himself. wanted to go to the capital, lunging for the wheel and a secret service agent who refused. but there are several things. the committee has
6:27 pm
not answered yet. why did it take so long to get approval for the national guard to be deployed? governor, i don't know who has been approach congressional leaders that were able to be moved to a safe location by capital police. made frantic calls that went unanswered for hours . the committee produced evidence, the trumps inner circle. knew something was going to happen. people like rudy giuliani, i remember looking at him saying, rudy, did you explain what was happening on the sex? he had responded something to effect of. we're going to the capital. going to be great presence going to be there, he's going to look powerful. he's, he's going to be a member, is going to be with the senators, but what we still don't have hard evidence on. if this was a planned coordinated attack, the committee voted unanimously to refer to the justice department for criminal charges against the former president. but they've already been looking into this. there's a special prosecutor that's been appointed. a grand jury in washington has been hearing testimony that will likely determine if in fact the attack here on the
6:28 pm
capital was planned. and if so, who will have the price for it will have to 0 washington, thousands of ambulance staff are going on strike in the u. k. on wednesday, a day after similar industrial action by nurses up to 100000 nurses walked off the job for a 2nd day this month, calling for a better pay on working conditions. the government says it cant afford the 19 percent wage increase. they're demanding or a challenge says more from london. and his boss is basically saying that there are potentially going to be some emergency calls they get made today. and that go on upset with obviously a significant hit potentially on people's lives, whether they survive in emergency situation or not. now we are being told that the most severe emergency call absolutely life threatening situation. ambulance is, will be dispatched to go and offer assistance. they're going to call back and

6:35 pm
using that exerting pressure on natural yahoo to demand various ministries and so on. in addition to that, demanding special extra powers for the ministries that they have been promised, which has meant that netanyahu has, has to push through various bits of legislation in the connected to make all of this happen. now it does seem as though we, he has now a 10 day extension which runs out today, wednesday. it is expected that by be well before midnight. he will be able to make that all important phone call to isaac hurts. are the president to say yes, he does have in place he's coalition and a will then have 7 days for the formal swearing in. but we do know from the makeup of this extraordinary government, that this will be the most, the most nationalistic and also religiously orthodox government, that israel has had to date, australia and china have agreed to more high level talks on trade. human rights on security, australia is foreign minister penny wong is in beijing for talks with the chinese

6:37 pm
when he said he's prepared from his side to completely reset the ties, is there the last few years haven't happened. he's blamed australia unilaterally for making this relationship so difficult to under the previous administration of scott morrison in particular. but when listening to penny wong as feed back in the question and answer session after these meetings, it was clear. there's still a lot of major difficulties for this relationship, and none of them seem to have been immediately addressed. whether it's the trade sanctions that we'd imposed on australian exports to china. whether it's accessible, australian consular officials to detained australian citizens in china. whether it's australia's view, which is a western view, in large part of human rights concerns in china with regards to the northwest region of sin, jang, or tibet. none of these things have been immediately addressed as a result of this meeting. and so it's not really clear how many steps could be taken in the short term to find a resolution on these issues. but for the time being from both sides, a commitment to more discussion and for more constructive discussion and to move
