security. they were promised. arriving to relative safety. after weeks of shelling over 3000 were able to escape murray or pull on friday. but it's a journey full of risks. one woman recounts her fears as she crossed a russian check point. is that even as the big but it was very difficult. she said, you can't. i was afraid they would take my son away here. they made him to his phone on the ground and trample on it because he had american music. an attempt by the red cross to deliver aden, evacuate civilians, ended in failure. the organization said the lives of thousands depended on evacuations. there is no plan b. here we have been working for week. i am telling the media bower efforts to get
into my appall with aid and to allow the safe passage of civilians out of the city . m prime is running out to the people of my appall, or they are desperately in need of assistance, though desperately need of leaving the 5th. if they wish to do so, unable to wait for the sled, the palms and cause the white cloth assigned them me no harm as many as 870000. that'll trapped in this city. but been devastated by wall this former often age. no, a makeshift bomb shelter for those who can't escape. we came here to the basement. she said, if we stay here because we don't what happened to our apartment? we run he with what we had with the red cross said they will attempt once again to reach the city on saturday in
a bit to rescue the innocent from what is left of maria hall. d w correspondent, i'm eunice if joins is live now from the ukrainian city of levine in the west of the country. i mean, tell us about these attempts to rescue the residents of mary hope all would you since there is they now red cross buses in under the direction of the ukrainian government had been trying to bring much needed aid food, medical supplies into that besiege city of morrow you pull into brookfield, those buses with residence and bring them out of there. there's an estimated 170000 people in that city falling victim every day to rushing, shelling and fighting in the streets so far. the mass evacuations have failed, but we have heard the good news that residents who were fit enough and lucky enough to find their own rides out of the city to the neighboring city of verde. and also
on that they were able to take buses from there to the safe and region of the parisha or to just continue along the humanitarian cor doors to stay for space. but as i said, the mass evacuation of thousands of civilians that needs to happen in order to save their lives has not happened yet. and those that attempt is going to continue until it's no longer possible. and in that story we heard about the fear that some refugees are feeling at russian checkpoints. why are there any credible reports of russian soldiers, mis treating them? there's several reports of not only mishandling, but the situations where civilians passed through a checkpoint after they've cleared the checkpoint, then they come under fire from russian troops. there. we've also heard stories of people being abducted when they go through checkpoints, journalists and activists who are then forcibly brought to russia and no longer
heard of colleagues here have talked to family members who have had that happen to their family members. we've also heard that mines have been placed on roads leading out of dangerous areas like mar, you pull, and many people driving over those mines at night fall victim to them, injuries and deaths. so the danger of fleeing to safety is sometimes greater than that of staying in the city. at least that's how some people are calculating it. nick has a good kind of a dire situation. just to talk about the politics your president lensky, has made a statement. what and what he expects russia will do next. can you give us the main points? he's basically warned ukrainians to remain cautious as they move back into areas that russia has left after they've decided to redeploy troops to the east. so levine, where i am western ukraine, is considered a safer area in the country. lots of ex residence of kia lived here,
and has been talking the last few days of us starting their lives again in key of now that russian troops have mainly moved out of the area surrounding the capital city. but what the lensky warned is that as russian troops leave, they've left a disaster behind them. he's warned of shelling, continuing their from afar. he's also warned, of russian troops leading, mindless before people who move back into the area just as an act of terrorism. even mining bodies or rubble that when people come to remove dead bodies from the street or to pull away rebels and they could fall victim to a mind that was placed there. so all in all he said that as it becomes safer to move into these areas, people still need to remain highly cautious and, and vigilant as they try to begin their lives again. ok, w corresponding, i mean as if in love you. thanks for that.

an economic partner. food in now says a vote for a fee. that is a vote for peace. the government claims your position is cruel war. something the opposition denies the war in neighboring ukraine has taken center stage in this selection. but just how much is the war influencing halter me a bit get. we're going to vote for peace. that's why we're here. and peace will be delivered by the government by feed us. it's annie, choose peace, choose hero. read this campaign slogan from hungary opposition, but their message is being drowned out by or about the fetus party, which is dominating campaigning. some borders are also being swayed by domestic issues. i will vote for the opposition because i see the future in them. not in this home, a phobia government, a political analyst peter cracker says the warning ukraine has helped or been
create a fresh narrative. so what albany does now is that he translates for him for this into domestic boy, except the messages that if you support the opposition, then the real team awfully do crane. and as a result, there will be of war and you are hungry around voters can also die as a result of the war. and you as anger and voters can be very much for the gas. and that actually city than you paid before. how much fetus stands to benefit from the tactic is unclear. 20 percent of voters say they are still undecided? in the fallout from slapping chris rock at the oscars actor will smith has resigned from the academy of motion, picture, arts and sciences. the body whose members vote on oscar award nominations. in a statement, smith said he would accept any further punishment decided by the academy. smith is facing disciplinary action after a slap in comedian chris rock during the ceremony on sunday night.
and for more on this let's go to ron. so it's like beto who is an entertainment journalist in washington, d. c. thanks for joining us, ron se. well, smith has resigned from the motion picture academy where the slap is this an attempt to head off more serious penalties? do you think? in many ways it does seem that way. i think effectively blunt to the impact of whatever might come in the future. so yes, i would, i would agree that that's what, that's what's happening right now. and you think he's sort of got the academy out of an awkward situation by resigning sort of preemptively and anticipating a possible, you know, dismissal possibly. possibly it's, it's unclear what it would look like for that. i mean, who knows what they can do to him? now he's no longer a member, but he says that he is open to whatever actions become. and so if they do take actions, it's interesting to see how, how that,
how that will play out. so possibly they can see that he cannot actually rejoin the academy for x amount of years, but it's at this point, we don't know, we still have to wait and see. do you think there's a possibility that this was somehow negotiated with the academy beforehand and possibly with, with chris rock and there's a, there's a play is a screen played all this rehabilitation somehow that was so i do know that will slip met with the academy early this week, so of course multiple reports, there was a 30 minute call between will smith and leadership at the academy and he supposed to apologize and said that he was open to whatever actually decided to go with. but i don't think chris rock is involved, chris rock has said that he hasn't report said that they haven't spoken to each other. so i don't think chris rock is in any way involved, but it's not far fetched to think that he came to an agreement. we can meet early this week and just to come back to l. smith,
i mean shortly after the slap he won an oscar. so is he just sort of taking his ball and leaving it 30 minutes after the slab of he p one. the ask is latching chords reports the academy was trying to decide how to respond to the incident. and by the time, you know, you know, the kind of figure out their options. he won the award so they were kind of left with no options. so taking his ball even i think would be to retire and which i don't, i don't think that's what this is. he's just no part of the academy, which means he can only vote. and nominees, i am probably can no longer be nominated. but beyond that, i don't think that will be taking his ball and leading on his career. ok, ross is like beto a journalist in washington d. c. thank you for that insight. thank you so much watching tito the news? here's a reminder, our main story. some 3000 residents of barrow paul have managed to flee the besieged city, but
