increasingly scarred by war. but even those whose homes have been destroyed, believe that victory as possible with enough help were the services of the war. everything depends on how our western friends help us. with the we will win. if we get lots of help at us, we will win soon as it struggles to make advances on the ground, russia has ramped up its bombardments, much of hard heave. just 50 kilometers from the russian border, already lies in ruins. it was ukraine's 2nd largest city. now half of its residents have fled. thousands of those who remain have taken refuge in underground train stations, hiding from rushes heavy shelling in the besieged city of mary. u paul. the situation is even more dire. food and water are scarce and local, say they've had to bury their dead and make shift graves. ukraine's president is
11:03 am
carefully considering how to best and the suffering ballade. amir zalinski said his team was studying russia's demand for ukrainian neutrality. and that the issue would have to be put to a referendum, a good idea of his up wasn't security guarantees and neutrality. non nucular status of our country. we are ready to go for it. that's the most important point. it was the main point for the russian federation. that's why they started this war. funny zabel in the july on sunday. ukrainian authority said an agreement had been reached with russia on a humanitarian court or out of mary you, paul, giving residence the chance to try and reach safety. those who do make it out may well join the ever growing number of refugees like these crossing into romania via ferry and for the latest on ukraine were joined by the debbie correspondent funny for char, in the western city of levine finney, president zalinski is now talking about
11:04 am
a potential neutral status for ukraine and exchange for security guarantees. would any guarantees from moscow be credible lo that's a really good question. a given the situation here on the ground and all what ukraine has been through since february 24th. all the bombardments across the east and the southern there are also northern parts of ukraine and also he and live it just a couple of days ago. so difficult to answer. but also, if you just look back on history, there's the minced agreement in 2014, which was supposed to bring an end to the war, ended on bus region. that did not happen. that mince agreement was signed by russia . it was signed by a crane. but this is very out politic is on the ground right now. instead of bringing peace to don boss of this escalated even further with his full scale invasion of every 24th president, the landscape from his perspective says, is only going to be peace if russia forces to be through all the processes just fall far. that wasn't really clarified because he actually said they should redraw
11:05 am
to word they way or not. this could be only the don bas region, but you also make clear is not going to be peace without a ceasefire. so a lot of things that are quite catchy and even if was journalist, it's so difficult to translate what the actual a deal breaker would be here. just imagine how hard it will be for these 2, our negotiation teams, the delegation of russia and ukraine to actually come to terms to something that they then can put forward to their audiences, which is ukraine here, and russia in the neighboring country. and you were mentioning the don bass region and those minsk agreements and the negotiations that broke down they were seen as a way towards peace. could that be a way out of the war as sacrificing and don been seen as potentially the way forward person zalinski in that 90 minute interview that he had with russia journalist,
11:06 am
he made it clear that he's not going to basically force a force be to re take all russian occupied territories. now the largest chunk of that is the don bus region. having said that, it clearly implies that he may would want to have a compromise over that region, which is a very difficult question. he sat action that interview how that compromise is. going to be reached, but he's putting it all day or as a way to find a way around all of this and to bring an end to the war. because what he on the line in that interview as well. he wants to decrease that the is more a bloodshed that he or more casualties under this war is, is prolonged by such but by it, by more month, more weeks to con. so yes, it is definitely a central point you did on bus region. but the question really is, but a people will accept that president lensky in ukrainian, in a different interview designed for the ukranian audience said yesterday, they definitely want several referendum about anything that may bring
11:07 am
a change to the territory here. and he also said that he wants to prioritize the territorial integrity of ukraine. so lot of conflicting messages there. if you ask me, we have to see why these p falls will bring that are supposed to start today in turkey . ok, the w furniture in the v, thanks so much. we turned to china now we're millions of people in shanghai have been confined to their homes in order to control a growing outbreak of coven. 19 the financial hub has become a corona virus hotspot. in recent weeks, citywide lockdown will be conducted in 2 phases. it's china's most extensive lockdown in 2 years. let's get more now from 5 in customer. he's a correspondent for us in beijing funding. has this caught people by surprise? yet quite by surprise. i mean, to be cleared, there were several m rumors going on in the previous day that there could be
11:08 am
a lock down. however, they were all immediately am denied by the local government. and then when yesterday evening they indeed announced city wide locked down and people were flooding the supermarkets, emptying the shelves, and a lot of panic reactions. and people are really worried in shanghai am. so yeah, it was stephanie a surprise and help us understand how does it to phase lockdown work, what's gonna happen in everyday life? so i am, the city was basically a split into 2 different zones. am actually by the natural border there, sir. river m. m a flowing through shanghai and east of the rivers. the 1st locked down zone and m fort ace. later, there will be, am on the west of the river, going into locked on em. however, you have to keep in mind, it's in total more than $26000000.00 people in shanghai. so it's probably the biggest lockdown in the whole world right now. and, and yet the locked on is also really quite strict. so basically, m,
11:09 am
previous lockdown say, have been extended for several weeks. so i would question that am, after those 4 days am the people can really, i'm going to freedom, at least in previous loc dance and shanghai. there were always m a 48 hour locked down center, were extended for another 48 hours and then another 48 hours. so those routes were really quite flexible. i think it always depends on em. whether they can stop the m infection of the virus. there will be a lot of mass testing while people are sealed off and basically cannot go out. and do you have any idea this is likely to spell the end of shanghai that was a 0 coven policy? no, am i mind a protectionist? the am opposite because i am actually there were a lot of speculation going on whether they the government would basically have a pilot project in shanghai. i'm living with the virus co existence of the virus,
11:10 am
but they decided otherwise, i mean, am the financial center of china that is put in to lockdown. the economic costs is really very high, and it shows a commitment that they want to keep the 0 corporate policy with a lot of effort, a lot of costs. and, and probably one reason is that in autumn we have the at the 20th party congress. and until then, i don't think that china is ready to risk opening up the country and i think they are committed to keeping 0 cove. it at least for now. ok. 5 encroachment reporting for us there from shanghai. thanks so much. the 2022 oscars have wrapped up in los angeles with the best picture award going to koda a feel good family drama, from the streaming service apple tv plus. but the ceremony was overshadowed by this unscripted moment of violence between 2 stars. oh, after will smith got up on stage and slapped chris rock in the face after the comedian
11:11 am
made a joke about smith's wife jaida pink at smith. the actor then went on to win his 1st oscar for best actor for his performance as richard williams in king. richard i let's go to los angeles now and talk to journalist kj matthews k j. thanks for joining us. this has to be an oscar 1st. tell us what happened between chris rock and well smith you. well 1st of all, you're absolutely right. it is an oscar 1st. it's a 1st for everyone. i've been covering hollywood for nearly 2 decades, and i've never seen anything like this and i've seen a lot in hollywood, but nothing like this. you know, it was a joke. chris rock is a comedian, so people expect to see him. joking when he gets on stage to present the war and tonight was no different really. except he made a joke at j to peak at smith's expense. now, many people may not be aware, but gina peacock smith suffers from a hair loss condition called al your p. she's talked about it publicly,
11:12 am
i think back in 2018 is when she came out and revealed it. and so to night, when chris rock said something about her being in the film a g i janie was obviously making comment about her bought head and it didn't go over well with will smith. so he took to the stage, punched chris rock and then took a seat when chris rock said, wow, you know, i just been punched by will smith. that's when will smith said, you know, keep my wife's name out of your bleeping mouth twice. extremely lough, so everybody in the theatre just went silent. they were shocked. i think a lot of people were just trying to figure out, is this part of it that the ratings are that the oscars are doing because of low ratings in the past? so they're trying to mix it up a little bit and they're all in on it. it's all fine. but then as time went on, there were a lot of people in the theater is said, will smith was extremely upset and that people were coming to him during various commercial way. people like then they're washington and tyler perry in his age. and
11:13 am
so that's when people started to realize, oh this is not plan, this is very real and it, we just kind of off the rails from there. okay, and can you just tell us, i mean, an incredible moment of drama? i think we can understand husband's. you know, willingness to, to defend his wife who's suffering from a medical condition. i guess we'll see what the internet says about it. but if we can just move on to the movies here for a 2nd, let's talk about the other. where starting with the best picture going to coda, a film with mostly deaf rafters. yet what's all that about? you know what, they won 3 important awards. first things 1st with kodak, troy cops, or one for best supporting actor. he is the 1st death actor to win, and that just remarkable. so he won, made history to night, of course code, again, one for best adapted screenplay. and then lastly, as you said, they want for best picture. and that is significant. you know why? because i'm every single year, the streaming services tend to pick up more and more oscar nominations at 1st,
11:14 am
i think like 5 or 6 years ago, people didn't really take the streamer seriously and didn't know whether or not they were really of fail when he came to film categories in the oscar tonight, apple tv with coda one, it's 1st oscar award in the best picture category. that means that no other streaming service has one for best picture until tonight. so another 1st, k j matthews from los angeles. thank you for your insight on this year's oscars. thank you. and we turn to sports now. max 1st stop. it has one, the saudi arabian grand prix. coming out on top after a tense head to head with ferrari, driver, shout. tell. raining world champion. ver, stop and started from force on the grid, while the tail lined up on the front row besides sergio paris, decisive moment came later on in the race. when 1st i've been overtook the task to move into the lead was just for laps remaining. a dutchman then held on to claim his 1st victory of they're watching dw news live from
