9:06 pm
you can only imagine how they feel like now they've already lost everything. they've already the everything behind. and now, even in the west, part of the claim there, encountering the same, you know, this threat that they have been as a thing in the east. although it has to be said that so far did the west that the western part of ukraine have been spared the atrocities. we see that we're seeing a happening eastern part of the country, d w's among yourselves. to night in the western ukrainian city of levine. emma, thank you and please stay safe. while meanwhile, a few 1000 ukrainian soldiers are standing their ground in a vast steel plant in the eastern port city of mario pole. this is the last pocket of resistance against the russians in the city. authorities say that the defenders

9:08 pm
screech ins, ramadi, the net, glasgow bl, estie. on sunday, ukraine's remaining troops scenario full defined brushes, surrender or die ultimatum. some tune, half 1000 ukrainian troops are dug in here at the sprawling as of stall steel plant . it is now the only known remaining pocket of resistance. many civilians and children are also sheltering. here. with the passing of the surrender deadline, pro russian separatist forces say they are now preparing for attack hoopa. there are only 2 blocks of buildings left before the mill. yeah, there's a small area around the factory and the enemies, they're hiding the basements. they just plug that over. we're preparing the ground assault. the artillery will show them 1st before we send in close quarters, assault troops will show up at about a quarter. meanwhile,
9:09 pm
mario pulse defenders are set to fight till the end will. i'm joined now by a glance net cove from university college london. she specializes in russian foreign security and domestic policy is good to have you on the program. let me ask you, how should we understand this, this new offensive by russia? are we talking about a last chance for ukraine to save itself? or is this more of a last chance for russia to try in when this war? say it depends what you mean is sort of the offensive in terms of the dumbass or whether it's about the increase shelling of large sections of ukraine that we have seen over the last few days. there's definitely been escalation of shelling over ukraine like in the v around cave, but there's also sort of the ongoing regrouping of the russians in bass,
9:10 pm
in preparation for the attack that is said to be imminent. for the latest reports is that the russians now have around $76.00 battalion groups stationed in the area . and there for the expectation, is that the attack sort of will come shortly. now, for the russians, that is a sort of last military charms. if they lose the boss of a dumbass, they are affect the sort of lost the war. that is wise expectation is that the russians who really try and sort of focus on this no chuck ration in order to try to get as much out of it as they possibly can. and we have to consider the fall of more your poll to russia, that seems all but certain. that would be a huge loss for ukraine. what will this mean then for the defense and security calculus in cave? so i think in reality we have been expecting the food of mary up or for a while now. and it was a question of when and not a question of if there's been claims and county claims about surrenders the whole
9:11 pm
of last week about whether or not the ukrainians were able to sort of support the fight is in mary awful. but in fact, you know, over the next few days, mary, opal, and there's also will effect to be full. hence a sort of the ultimatum of what it means. go ahead, go ahead. no, does it, would it mean, does it have it mean? so it's, it will be seen as a victory for the russian side. it's important symbolically, it's important because it is a major port in the as of see for the finance a cuts off the kind of control of the as of. and it will also be symbolically important from the point of view of sort of the anti nazi crusade that president pitching has been going on. and it will also allow the russians to reinforce their campaign and dumbass by making the trip to mario pull eastwards from the point of view of cave, because they've been expecting it. i don't think that the for the mario pl will come as any surprise. and therefore tactical and strategically they would mean
9:12 pm
planning for that to that it's not expected they will, would have calculated into this sort of strategic planning and beyond the, the battlefield here. the u commission. chief ursula from july and said in the past few days that it is just a matter of time now before russia goes bankrupt. and i'm wondering, is russia now running against the clock here and running against these economic sanctions? while ukraine finds itself rushing to keep itself armed so that it can continue fighting. are those the 2 background battles that have emerged in this conflict? so some extent, yes, but i think we have to keep in mind that the, at the moment what we have on the battlefield is essentially the ukrainians, having them on power, particularly 3 mobilization, but needing sort of more firepower. the russian major problem is the lack of
9:13 pm
manpower. so even if we hear the stories of sort of time produces no longer being able to produce tags and no difficulties in trying to create sort of new equipment actually does of equipment. the russians have enough, but it's a question whether they have sufficient sort of manpower. so just to be able to fight it in the long run. sanctions will of course, have very negative full backs in terms of russians capacity to rebuild themselves militarily. but i think that unfortunately, the effect may not be quick enough with regards to the actual battle field and that say the decisive battle feel in dumbass. and that's the sanctions and not be going to be able to effect that in a short time in the long run. absolutely. the russians, russian military leave much weakened by the sanctions that have been placed against them. yeah, it's a very good point. the point that i think to volume improvement is finding harder and harder to ignore dr. alliance and it goes from university college, london. we appreciate your time and your insights tonight. thank you. thanks sammy,
9:14 pm
on where despite the renewed of salt on ukraine, russia has suffered as we just heard a major loss of the black sea flagship. the moscow sank after allegedly being hit by ukrainian missiles last week. now that is something that the kremlin denies were now images have emerged appearing to show the worship on fire and engulfed in smoke just moments before it sank. the missile cruiser was the biggest russian worship lost in action since the 2nd world war while americans war on ukraine is being waged with the blessing of the russian orthodox church. but not all of its followers are standing behind his invasion. one russian monastery here, germany is taking a very different stand. monks at saint j orgs, abbey, north of berlin, have opened their doors to ukrainian refugees. the w news went to visit
