6:01 am
future onslaught. and germany's president abandons plans to visit the ukrainian capital as a gesture of solidarity. after he's told that he's not welcomed. ah, i'm jarrett ray, thank you for your company. russian troops are pressing on with a sage of this southern ukrainian city of mary. you're paul, russian president, vladimir putin has insisted that the kremlin is bloody offensive in ukraine will succeed. and he says, pace talks are at a dead end as fee as grow that moscow might be using chemical weapons. people are fleeing easton, ukraine ahead of unexpected new onslaught by the russian army. russian troops on the streets of mario pole. russia has been accused of using band chemical weapons against the city. ukraine's president admitted it is difficult to verify
6:02 am
the claim while the city is under siege. but he urged the world not to wait to act unless it hoge in new and that is given the repeated threats from russian propagandists of using chemical weapons against the defenders of murray. you poll even and given the repeated use of, for example, he phosphorus munitions by the russian army. by single gonna, the world must react. now what must react preventively? i didn't know about that, but of them did not. across eastern ukraine, people are fleeing ahead of an expected wide scale russian assault on the don best region. military analysts say the don bess with it's opened to rain and lack of natural barriers will be harder for defenders to hold on to as to the outcome. it's flighty balance right now, because if the russians learn the lessons of the failure so far and could
6:03 am
concentrate more force and could connect the raffles to the ground forces better and could so that it just sticks out. then they might start to overwhelm the ukrainian positions, eventually eventually got you going to russian president vladimir putin, who has i, the don best region for years said piece was off the table in the family go no grand ukrainian side moved away from its agreement in istanbul, now the requirement for security guarantees is one thing that was and the questions regarding settlement of relations with respect to crimea sufficed to pull and don best or to be taken outside the framework of those agreements. so we're back again in a dead end situation for all of us to do it as the russian army repositions for renewed assault on eastern ukraine as seen in these satellite images. there are fears the troops will leave many more destroyed cities like murder, you pull in their wake. well, early i spoke to michael o'hanlon, who is a senior fellow and director of research in foreign policy at the brookings
6:04 am
institution, washington. and i asked him how possible it was to independently verify this rumored use of chemical weapons by russia. we can't know, and of course it will require independent verification. yes, i think it's possible because if you can sneak out samples of soil where this allegedly heard, and course that requires bravery unlocked to get out of there. but it's certainly conceivable. i think that there is also every reason to think the russians might have done this. we know they have used chemical poison against their own dissidence in the past. we know they were not at all shy about working with president of syria even after he had used chemical weapons. and perhaps he continued to even during the russian intervention. there we have already seen president called the war criminal by numerous western leaders, including of course, the u. s. president, which then in some way unfortunately lowers the threshold for using chemical weapons because it is already considered a work criminal. he may feel he has nothing left to lose. and so for all these
6:05 am
sorts of reasons, combined with the sheer barbarity of the russian onslaught, so far, i would be inclined to think this is a distinct possibility. but yes, we have to investigate further. michael hun one day. well now that ukraine has recaptured the region around the capital keep military analysts believe the port city of desa is now high on platinum. putin's new list of military targets. over the last few days, a desa has been hit repeatedly by russia. miss solve the situation. there is 10 spot residents are ready to defend the cd, even under ground correspondent yon phillip sholtes reports the road to safety leads deep beneath odessa, more than 20 meters below the port city is a 2500 kilometer long tunnel system. nobody knows this underground labyrinth better than engineer roman. moussa and his friend alexander, when the 1st rocket said odessa, the pair began,

6:07 am
further we have to write new inscription here, 2022 above the ground. odessa, residents are finding it increasingly difficult to maintain some kind of normality . the city was supposed to celebrate its world war to victory over the nazis last weekend, but the events were cancelled for security reasons. instead, a 36 hour curfew was imposed. it's a very bitter irony at a time when people in odessa should be celebrating the anniversary of their liberation from the nazis. they have to get prepared for another possible attack. but just like more than 80 years ago, the people here are ready to defend their city to the last. the security forces in odessa, a looking with concern towards other black sea cities where the fighting has been intensifying. many military analysts believed putin as planning to cut ukraine off from the c. taco there, said sir, oh, this is

6:09 am
the 1st they do, most of the time, people keep their flat, keep off the streets, and basically keeping a very low profile as high as ukraine. second big city is certainly a target that russia would be able to the rest of the nice. it will be able to sell its population of success if they are able to take it. that's been situation here, had kept funding a put in might be wanting to hold victory, prayed him in may anniversary of the end world war 2 for the certainly a lot of reasons to be. busy we have people are keeping on with a lot as much as possible. still internet hair, there's still electricity heating. all those kind of government services are still available and people are spite and seconds of getting used to life like this. getting used to live with air raid sirens, getting used to spending the night in the sellers in the metro and for now business if it is still functioning for all the pressure for all the anxiety that is substance under nick connelly in high keith there will ukrainian officials say
