summary of the current situation in ukraine president vladimir zalinski is urging people to keep up their resistance even as russia is intensifying its attacks. on major cities, russian troops are in the black sea port of press on, and the regions governor says, rushing forces on control of the administration building for the rece, the city of hockey fund. mario pope, also on the heavy attack and in the capital keith, a large explosion, has hit an area near the southern railway center. meanwhile, a large russian conway of tanks and other vehicles appears to be stoled around 30 kilometers outside keys. us and british defense sources say the convoy has made a little discernible progress over the past 3 days. and the un says the number of people fleeing ukraine has now passed the 1000000 mark, making it to the fastest exodus of refugees. so far this century.
12:31 pm
now let's bring in all the coolies back to for arms control at the institute for peace research and security policy at the university of hamburg. now the mayor of mary paul says, russian troops have been circle the town and i specifically shelling civilian infrastructure. is this strategy? do you think to sort of targeting civilian infrastructure? i think it is part of a deliberate strategy and i would call it the chechen, or perhaps syrian strategy. it basically means you hit civilian interest structures as hard as possible in over at some point to overwhelm the other party. and just to basically make them back into stop to what is your view on how the ukrainian army then is holding up. i think the ukrainian army is really showing that it is giving the russians a very hard time. they are putting up a fight that i think no one in the russian army had really expected. no one has to
12:32 pm
say that so far, particularly the russian advance from the mall was not successful. i'm pretty sure of that. deleting military there has been filed already by the russians. at the same time, the russians are moving into ukraine from the south. and this is going to be a problem for the framing on the end, we will see how that plays out in the next couple of days. but let's face it. russia has more advanced, the bigger of the more modern i'll move and the ukrainians have. could it be that the, the russians for the russ russian strategy, the south of the country, a crimea is a more important than, than the west and the north. that's just speculation at the moment. i mean, let's face it, what are we seeing here? we're seeing a full fledged assault on the entire ukraine. so i think this is not just about crimea. i mean, it would be a hope to think that russians just want to take a crimea and, and, and more of the southern part of your training. but then stuff,
12:33 pm
but i think they're really up to invading the entire country and then occupy it for years to come. so many of you koreans, partners in, in the west, including a germany, are sending a weapons to ukraine. all these weapons arriving and are they actually making a difference? they are arriving. we heard that there for the batch of german anti tank missiles, as well as a sing on miss lyles has already lived in ukraine. so that is if we know a little bit about how german view direct chrissy works and how slow it usually is, that's lava and astonishing facts. do they really make a difference on the ground? perhaps not immediately, but in the long term. i mean, it's important that particularly now that the russian seem to have established our dominance over ukraine, that at least in the lower layer of where soldiers can carry those weapons on their
12:34 pm
shoulders. it's important to have something to fight back against the russian. you mentioned acid theory already, that the cranium government has urged the western force a no fly zone over ukraine. would that be a good idea from nature? would it be fully drawn into that conflict? look, i can understand that from a moral point of view that the ukrainians are asking for, for the west to enforce the no fly zone. but we have to think through what would that actually mean? it would mean that nature would have to go in, probably not just with airplanes, but also the ground forces. it also would mean that nature would have to take out their fund stations that would be based on russian territory. that would mean we would have a full fledged nature rush and conventional war. now please don't tell me that that would not still over into a nuclear war that could either state the entire globe. so i'm sorry to say it. i understand morally, but it's really a terrible idea. ok,
12:35 pm
you mentioned the nuclear fact that we had the russian foreign minister of a playing down the threat of a nuclear escalation. he called it, quote west and his theory ideas see the danger of his voice collating into something even bigger. in general, i think this is all part of the russian playbook. i mean, love roth. i'm sorry to say he was for a long time, a respected diplomats, but i can't take him serious anymore that we have seen clear russian signaling from the russian side, letting the uprooting threatening consequences of his torak dimensions should. the west intervene. dan braising, the alert levels of russia strategic nuclear forces, though the latter, i would say, was a viable symbolic stuff at the moment. i think there is a low risk of this whole war spilling over into a nuclear conflict with nuclear use. but there is a real risk. whatever missile ralph said. so here she,
12:36 pm
i know this all this tune from humbugs, universe, the thank you for joining us here on the w news. plaza. russia's war ukraine has not entered its 2nd week. president vladimir zalinski has urged his people to keep up their resistance even as russia intensifies its attacks on major cities. russian troops are being met with fierce resistance from both ukrainian military and ordinary citizens. ha, go home. these defiant residents of multiple standing up to russian soldiers after their city was taken russia as his troops have also captured the key black sea port of her son, one resident recorded the moment. he opened his curtains to see a russian tank in the street. they're turning people to steer inside. shooting. you hear the sounds.

12:39 pm
every 15 minutes are almost all the population of keys has to stay in shelters. so we're in the metro station in our underground. so it's we, we have, we don't worry, are you out with a red cross? and you, of course, are trying to help local people, people who are bombed out people who are displaced. what can you actually do to help? well, here we have several lines of support. and we have a mess, the flow of people to wear the western border of our countries trying to migrate to the western countries. as of today, almost 1000000 of ukrainians have already crossed the border in order to cross the border, they have to stand in long queues for, for a couple of days. that is why me as a red cross organize our emergency response teams to provide the chance essentials
12:40 pm
to these people to provide a safe places for mothers and children equipping equip in them with everything they need to giving them water. food met her hot clothes and also we support to force those people who stay in shelters into even in august are the cities of ukraine because they do not have mortar food medicine, whatever. we are trying to support medical institutions who are cut off from medical supply as well. and we tried to evacuate those people who are under miss heil shelly messiah texts, but it's not always possible for us. that was all in a stock, as deputy director of the ukrainian red cross speaking to us from kia forbid earlier. now the united nations general assembly has adopted a resolution demanding russia immediately stops using force against ukraine and withdraws its military from the country. the historic but non binding resolution was backed by 141 out of 193 members. states with only 5 countries voting

12:42 pm
the situation is for the people ukraine, right now, it's threatened to get much, much worse. thinking clock is a time bomb looking at het, i will continue to do everything in my power to contribute to an immediate cessation of hostilities and urgent negotiations for peace. people in ukraine desperately need peace and people around the world demanded the kremlin has long been cracking down on independent media and russia. effectively sensory voice is critical of the government when the war in ukraine started authorities, band media outlets from using terms like attack or invasion to describe what was happening there. now the latest casualty, in the information war is independent russian radio station echo of moscow. it says
12:43 pm
it's shutting down after being taken off here, over its coverage of the war, crackling and hissing. that's all that can be heard on the frequency that radio eco must be used to broadcast on for 30 years. it was the only national radio station, not under the control of the kremlin echoes board of directors voted to liquidate the station after rushes, media watchdog ordered its web site blocked what you mean. yeah, i'm surprised and still surprises. nobody expected this. we still have a few more independent media, but i'm afraid they won't make it much longer. that much don't exist pretty. the another online channel has also been blocked. a radio station decided to close down because they said they don't want to lie. this insanity has to stop. read the headline on some leech, no newspapers until the copies were confiscated. purplish revolutionists will. i
12:44 pm
think it's outrageous. i stopped you. those were the last of the free voices that have now been stifled. marolla forgot the robledo. they probably say more than as wanted that censorship. zora on tuesday, police and moscow detained 2 women and 5 children who wanted to lay flowers at the ukrainian embassy. their posters read no to war. police allegedly threatened to strip the parents of custody camera. citizens are still finding ways to protest. no war is written on houses. bus stops balconies and elevators, but the words are quickly removed. but russia's invasion of the ukraine is being seen as a wake up call by many people in taiwan. china has long laid claim to the our, that nation, and some few that bay jane could launch a similar attack due to abuse. joyce lee reports on the growing concern among

12:46 pm
so it's become a part of daily life. and people even joke about having a wall, just like the ukrainians dead before the invasion. so what happened in ukraine is a wake up call for the taiwanese many see a need for greater self reliance as soon as the war broke out, ukrainians in taiwan were joined by low coast in anti war rallies, mindset of pain, and she didn't thing are unfortunately very similar, if with him can invade ukraine just like this without any reason because there is no reason then of course i on these people. if it also be alert, we're kind of afraid there will be offensive doors and have a higher one room will never know if we were called the the older cra, piley's air growth drill. alden's got applied right despite the worries expo, say across straight war is unlikely for now. it's too risky for beijing to launch a landing operation given the end to ship massage taiwan has precedence seizing,
