12:02 pm
win if we get lots of help and we will win soon as it struggles to make advances on the ground. russia has ramped up its bombardments. much of her 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. you, paul, the situation is even more dire. food and water are scarce and local, say they've had to bury their dead in makeshift graves. ukraine's president is 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,
12:03 pm
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 . zebulon, not even 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 for the latest we're drawing from the ukranian capital. keep by deed of you correspond mathias, bowling, gun mathias, ukrainian, or defense official. shea. russian forces are regrouping but currently unable to advance what's the situation on the ground in chief we've seen or heard more intense shelling a in the outskirts of for the last maybe 24 hours. the ukrainian or army
12:04 pm
headquarters have also said that it has made attempts at breaking through the lines in the northeast and in, in the northwest and the east of the capital, where they have been fighting for basically play, basically since the beginning of the war. and this is different, i'm sorry, it's a bit windy. i've got some sand in my eyes. um. yeah. so this is the situation now . it more intense fighting but no as we can as far as we understand it. no advances are no changes so far happening. um the city is calm, people here are out about their daily lives. a life has returned a little bit into um into the streets of key if most people have left for the streets are pretty empty. but a few more shops, a few more cafes may be, are open than before. as you well know, mathias,
12:05 pm
another round of negotiations between ukraine and russia are due to be held in turkey. what are the key issues the 2 sides will likely be talking about well, i mean, the issue that the list of for demands from russia has been cut short a little bit when they started the war. they were talking about di, not defying ukraine, whatever that means. demilitarize in basically meaning that they would have a say in the politics inside ukraine in the government. and that ukraine would not be able to resist any minute reaction from russia and the future incursions or whatever. this is off the table now, but there remain lots of issues. the stages of don boston, russia wants to keep separate from ukraine, as well as the neutrality question that you've already mentioned in the report. that a d, w, correspond mathias bullying reporting from the key as always, many things well,
12:06 pm
military drones are an important weapon for both sides in the war and ukraine. the unmanned aircraft come in a variety of sizes and do many jobs from aerial surveillance to launching missiles . the u. s. is now sending ultra light drones to help ukraine the switchblade drones as they are known or small enough to fit in a backpack, but are able to strike targets with high precision. and i in the sky with a deadly payload. this is a promotional video by the maker of the switchblade loitering munition. it hangs out in the air, sends images back for humans to figure out targets. then it becomes a missile. switch blades are advertised online. they way just a few kilograms and can be launched from a small tube requiring little set up or training. but it's the weapon system whose name cannot be spoken,
12:07 pm
at least by us officials. i can't confirm a particular systems that president did speak over. we did speak of tactical unmanned aerial systems we provided and are providing a 100 of those systems and is not in position to, to speak to all the specific systems that may be included in that package. ukraine has already been using so called loitering munitions to strike russian forces. turkish made drones carried lightweight laser guided bombs. this footage purportedly shows the result of their strikes on russian targets. meanwhile, the russian military has been using drones, both big and small as part of its arsenal against ukraine. this video shows the aftermath of an alleged drone missile strike on the science institute in cave. and a small drone recovered at the scene. will the switch blades be a game changer? some analysts say the u. s. is sending too few of them a supply that will only last
12:08 pm
a couple of days. but as ukraine battles against the superior fire power of its invader, ukrainians can use all the help they can get. let's find out more now from arthur holland, michelle. he's a senior fellow at the carnegie council for ethics in international affairs in barcelona. welcome to d. w. sir, a tell us a bit more about what makes the switch blades and brock tours show different. well, the thing about a loitering munition is it's kind of a mix between a missile and a drone. so unlike a large drone, it doesn't need an air field or lots of infrastructure to launch it is very small. as the report mentioned, it can be carried in a backpack. and unlike a missile, it gives you time to actually identify the target, get situational awareness and, and actually then literally drive the, the missile drone into the, the target manually or with some target recognition. and so it sort of combines the
12:09 pm
capabilities of those type of weapon system. and i imagine that these would be of particular use an advantage for the ukranian to right now. don't have the vision that you would get with with ariel power. yeah, well ukraine does actually have some aerial recognizance capabilities with anom drones, including small commercial quad kupta on social media. we've seen a lot of videos that purport to show ukrainian military using these small drones to scout out positions, conduct reconnaissance and identify targets. but certainly they would be an additional capability. is this. so tell, tell me more now about how each side is using drone technology for their own particular purposes. so there are basically 3 types of missions that each side is using. drones for one is to as i said, conduct intelligence recognizance,
12:10 pm
identify targets, maybe find targets for artillery strikes. in the case of, of russia, more toss strikes. the 2nd is limited actual drone strike. so using drones that have weapons on them to target enemy positions neither side has done that extensively. and then 3rd is in perhaps the most significant is sort of publicity, you know, to capture imagery. any image that a drone captures of tactical operations can be shed easily on social media. and so that really has a, a significant psychological effect, which is something that drones always, ah, capable of doing in conflict psychological effect, which would, of course, speak to morale of the troops. you've written. that drums are another step in the gradual autumn ization of warfare that further removes humans and human judgment from the subjects of their decisions. what are the implications of that affectively? it reduces the accountability of warfare every time that you have
12:11 pm
a computer system or a drone that is intermediary between the, the human who's making the decision and the target of that decision. you can always blame the computer malfunction or, you know, communications issues or coding issues on these areas. and that reduces the ability to apply laws of wool to humans in the conduct of military operations. interesting that so arthur holland, michelle michelle, i'm sorry, a senior fellow at the carnegie council for ethics in international affairs in barcelona. ne, thank sir. thanks. the seal good family film coda was named best picture at the oscars in a surprise when making it the 1st streamed film to pick up the prize. but the most memorable moment of the ceremony was an outburst of violence from one of hollywood biggest stores. actor will smith got up on stage and slapped comedian chris rock in
