board and get through to, to get across romania 1st to make it to paul. and the reason for that here are people on the ground. refugees have realized that it is more difficult as, as it was after all, during the past days to cross towards a pool and because it was such an increasing influx of refugees. so now they're trying alternative routes across romania, hungary, moldova, to get to poland. but some of relatives in germany, of course, and try to make you there. so depending on your family relatives, and will you see a chance to live for the next couple of weeks at least, because the so many people here would just like to return as soon as possible and, and return to their homes here in ukraine. the ws funny for child reporting from western ukraine. thank you. funny. the european union is expected to approve new support measures to assess the large numbers of ukrainian refugees fleeing the war. you ministers are meeting in brussels on thursday. they're due to

which is quite something i was with him as a travel to israel yesterday that was received positively. israel's now offered a new strategic dialogue so far, only has with britain and the us. and it shows that there's a new understanding of what strategic role germany will have also in the future. and that it has to be able to defend itself. because it's simply not able to do that. and this also fits in with the signals we're getting from the french present, a mano my call, whose now stressing self sufficiency is something that's needed in the future and an own strategic outlook. these are words we've heard before, but then now being backed up by money and it looks like infrastructure and hardware in the very near future as well. i think the money is the important sign. i always shows when people are serious do w. c political editor, michelle like huge now there for us. thank you. and the former german chancellor gerhard schroeder, is facing increasing political isolation for his failure to cut ties with the
