a way through my rooms. some 200000 civilians are currently trapped and maria pull the strategically important port. city has been under heavy bombardment, water and electricity remain cut off and food is running low. just outside keith, more missiles and artillery attacks. ukrainian officials say it's the same picture across the country, but he frames minister effort was also hit by missile strikes, prompting president zalinski to repeat his call for swift international action. zachary hitler, he introduced a no fly zone for all russian rocket. so for russian combat aviation for the terrorists introduce a humanitarian safety's own without rockets without ball resemble. and while the landscape plea goes unanswered ukrainians at doing their best to flee the intense
8:04 pm
shelling. why it's crossed now to our corresponding economy. who's in the capital, keith? nick, good evening to you. let's start with a situation in maria pole where the ceasefire hasn't broken yet again. what can you tell us? was increasingly desperate situation there for hundreds of thousands of people. this is a big city that is now surrounded from the north, from the east, from the west. missy to southwell has no, you're going to help coming there. and there are russian forces in that see of as of so this is desperate. this was always kind of clear from the ukraine, put you that this would be the key city in that part of the country in the dumbass that this is a key ukrainian base, very close to those self proclaimed separatist areas. and crucial for ukraine morale that it be kept. now we have, this is the 2nd attempt to try and organize cycle shantarian corridor get people out while the shilling stops. and again, at least the ukrainian side says, this is down to russian shelling not allowing this to happen. this is
8:05 pm
a very old fashion conflict. this is not a 21st century war in terms of technology being used. these are shells. these are, you are to re, most of it inherited from the 195060 seventy's. it's very difficult to actually on the ground tell who shot 1st. this been from all through the 8 year conflict and don't boss. but it does release from the ukrainian. it is seem clear that it's the russians who are responsible for this, and they would say that actually it's in russia's interest to stoke this humanitarian situation. because that will put pressure on your grains democratically elected president william zalinski to make sonic and concessions the russians. they say, have already factored in this reputational damage to them. this damage to civilian populations, these difficulties in these sufferings, they're going through. so that is that is that the, there can interpretation here just as i'm here and see if i could just hear a bang in the distance of we've been hearing those all day. those seem to be anti aircraft. systems are basically catching and destroying incoming rockets. so this is a situation that is very, very tense. wherever you are in the country, where i,
8:06 pm
let's pick up on that hill set. so it seems that ukraine still has some air defense capabilities. you're back in cave, in the western part of the country. what are things like where you are ok of has yet to see the kind of destruction that had killed the 2nd big city that is close. the russian border has where you've had lots and lots of residential buildings destroyed. am extraordinary damage to the city center into government buildings there. and oh, almost near blockade. there are still some routes into hot give here in case it's more about tension, about anticipation, what's coming next? we've seen plenty of russian secret agent. so i will, the credits they are, that were ready in place in advance of this conflict, to then emerge on the streets with weapons and try to attack police and other forces. we have seen a reports of attempts to take prison lensky life several. and now there is fighting about 25 kilometers away from where i am now in the western suburbs of cave,
8:07 pm
where you see people left also without power, without water at trying desperately get away. and convoys of sooty is trying to get out being shot at so this is a conflict that is very close. that is basically on the streets k of now give a capital of country that has been at war since 2014. but this is really the 1st time that conflict is now palpable. here in the center of ukraine's capital, you're describing us an incredible layer of events happening there. and in response, over the recent days, we've seen some also incredible pictures of men coming up to volunteer for the ukranian army, hoping to slow rushes advance. so if you're connect and stay with us for a 2nd, nick, we want to have a look at a report about what's driving. some of those volunteers will come back in a 2nd. these men are determined to fight for their country, even in the face of russian firepower, and without support from nato. here and keep their waiting to sign up. the ukraine armed forces resolved to do their part for the war effort. not to
8:08 pm
me. a war is the case, which is my duty which level i won't be useful if i want to help you. i want to protect. i want to fight back like i want my family to return to ukraine as soon as possible, and i will do my best. other volunteers stocking up for the battle ahead. an optimistic about victory. we know why we defined our country and our guys that are actually standing there and fighting, ah, russian military force as they know what they are doing. those guys, they don't, we know what we are doing. and that's why we'll, when it's that determination, that's helped inspire volunteers from much further afield to join the fight and creating mimic tree or let's be here for english just been kind of things barbie, even though the country surround and what he's just thought, isiah galvan was very looking for no illusions on a romantic ideas of war. old, i'm going to be some hero will make a difference or any of these spots. this water, if you could die, has really going to do 3,
8:09 pm
was with heavy fighting already reaching the city, the a pin just outside keep. it looks likely the volunteer bravery will soon be put to the test to some amazing comments there from some of the people interviewed nick, how important are these volunteers for the war effort and the ukranian army overseas? it shows that ukraine army has depths, and that it is able to put more force on the ground than what is currently being used at present. i think it was about morales versus the foreign volunteers assigned to ukraine, that ukraine is not being left alone with this, even though ukraine is outside of nato, even though you as present joe biden has, which he said that the u. s. is not gonna get directly involved on ukraine side against russia. i think the thing that ukraine really needs now though, all weapons are ammunitions. this is a key good demand from ukraine, ukraine thing to western countries where democracy here we have
8:10 pm
a democratically elected government. and russia invaded us in the was claiming that it was still open to negotiations and basically demanding regime change here in ukraine at its own terms. so ukraine desperate to get more in the way of supplies and particularly anti aircraft missiles, maybe more planes. we heard the plan maybe for a kind of swap that poland would send for soviet built planes fighter jets that the ukranian pilots are able to fly. and in return the u. s. would restart poland with american built plains for now that doesn't seem to be happening too soon, but they're really saying if you're not going to close the skies above ukraine, we are really hurting hard civilians are dying in ever greater numbers and his situation where the russian army is actually doing pretty badly in hand to handle kind of ground fighting it's degrading forces. it really does the sense here that rushes going up, the ante in the sky, where it has that advantage and without support in terms of anti aircraft facilities and planes. ukraine really could be left, you know, to bleed her here and is going to struggle to stand up for it. statehood if, if,
8:11 pm
if that was the help fills come in. connelly, their force in cave is always great to see you. and thanks for the report. and as nick mentioned, there, russia continues to sold on ukraine. meanwhile, united states is indicated it's looking for ways for poland to supply fighter jets to ukraine. u. s. secretary of state antony blank instead of can made f sixteens could be sent to poland to replenish it. stock of russian made jets if warsaw decides to send them to ukraine. pilots in the ukrainian air force are already trained to fly those russian aircraft. lincoln made the comments on a trip to ukraine's neighbor, moldova, we are, um, we're looking actively now at the question of airplanes, the poland they provide to, to ukraine and looking at how we might be able to back, fill, should pull and decide to produce those or to supply those plans,
8:12 pm
get more or less development from journalists young polka. he's in warsaw. yon. thanks for joining us. what is weighing on the polish government in making this decision? what it looks like on one hand, the polish side really would like to send it. and we have indicators that it was kind of promised on certain level as since the ukrainians know how to use these make 29 and airplanes. but at least i think, thinking twice the polar side, realised that sending pi digits is a different story than just sending equipment military equipment on the ground and place it somewhere on the board and somebody else is picking it up. if you send jets, then you have to start from a polish airport and you have to go into the war zone and just days ago. and also was also correcting ukrainian claims and statements that they would not only receive these jets, but also be allowed to operate 8 from polish airports. busy this was costly and
8:13 pm
clearly and denied as being fake news. right, is there a risk then that this could be seen by putin as nato getting itself involved in the war and trigger an escalation? yeah, i think so, pulled has been urging more help it all the time. also more or less a military equipment, but they seem to look very closely where's the red line to get too much in wolf into the war in 2 days ago, already polish president, angie duda said that sending jeff would mean it that direct interference kind of entry into the war at the beginning of the war between a natural member and russia. and he emphasized that poland and now too, is not party in this conflict, at least in the military sense. so that's one side of poland, involvement in this conflict. the other is refugees, can you tell us more about poland, current assistance to those coming over it's border he, i would say there is
8:14 pm
a complete turnaround from polish, a position to the bill or a crisis we've seen last year, which is actually a little bit continuing here with migrants being sand bag at the time. now, this was not so much a difference and to the extent of people's willingness to have. we've seen this on the beller us aside as well and adapt it. now the whole country has turned and the borders are widely open right now. also for people of different color and origin will also are sometimes here occur on the ukrainian polish border. so what we see is that poland is receiving more people in a few days than germany over the whole period during the 2015 crisis. and as far as i can see, they are not asking for help. and foreign minister ro, recently was asked whether they would ask for relocation or other assistance from other european countries, but he just did not answer to that. and i can can cannot hear anything like this. all right,
8:15 pm
correspondent yon power card. thank you very much for that. turkey has been attempting diplomatic efforts to end the war president, russia type air. the one has spoken by phone with his russian counterpart vladimir putin and urged him to agree to a cease fire in ukraine. opened humanitarian corridors and come to a peace deal. turkey has close relations with both moscow and keith, but recently moved to limit the passage of russian warships into the black sea. a longstanding, international agreement allows anchor to do just that during war time. but it can't prevent them from returning to their home. ports, such as the case of russian worships in their black support. early re spoke to the w corresponded dorian jones and symbol. he gave us his view on what's at stake for president rachel type air. the one in this war, this is a nightmare for one because much of his foreign policy has been developed on having very close relationship. both ukraine and russia. russia is
