10:34 pm
can survive, but i don't think this war's going to end soon. you know, they live in sellers to increase their chances of survival. neither the pricing for a predicted escalation in russia's campaign of destruction. oh, to live mon shotuko this week, we should expect great a hostile activity from russia and the early against ukraine, but also against other european countries. li, pontine sure. we are preparing, modeling. we are ready. ah, zelinski believes that russia will react to the european union's decision this week on whether ukraine will become a candidate for membership even considering ukrainian membership is a dramatic shift in the used position and runs counter to do cremins efforts to pull ukraine into its hold. it by force german foreign minister and alina babel on monday, voiced her support, head of a meeting of
10:35 pm
e. u. foreign ministers. for did you not say what i got was on conway is a special meeting. the appointment was we are gathered ahead of a historic moment. that was mocking. we all have to realize that the membership countries have a special responsibility when yawn in. none of us want to look back at this moment in a few years and think, how could we not make use look this opportunity to use a vice and stay long? miss newton. the promise of europe. hope for ukraine and it fight for survival. we talk ukrainian officials say they need a massive increase of military hardware if they are to drive russian forces out of the country. right now. western allies have supplied you. cr was just over 1000 answers as about 110th of what ukraine says. it needs and no rocket launchers have arrived even though ukraine has requested. 300 d, w. 's. nick connelly reports from the front lines in the southern mich alive region
10:36 pm
where ukrainian forces are making some advances. despite a shortage of equip, russia may be making gains in the don best, but it's a different story here. 600 kilometers to the southwestern mich alive. ukraine is pushing russian forces out of villages like these and closing in on the russian occupied city of harrison. b ukrainian commanders where their advance could run out of steam be stopped or even reversed. up to more than a 100 days of relentless fighting. their supplies, weapons, and ammunition running dangerously low. here it is, but we meet victor and his crew some way behind the front lines and will broke out and they were all working abroad. all of them decided to give up their lives in safety, in poland and germany to return home to fight. victor found the little had changed since his time to recruit and the soviet army decades earlier. well,
10:37 pm
thought i taking can 1st of this how it is just old. it's way past his prime little don't you? we be making the most of it. but what can you expect from a weapon built almost 50 years ago? yeah. much and like i work with a mozilla sims, historical duplicate of replacing it to something new and more powerful is of the cards for now. but even carrying on fighting as they have been in recent months be a challenge. ukraine supplies of soviet ammunition are almost exhausted for western produce shells on compatibility with russian missile strikes, a constant threat, producing weapons inside the country is near impossible. even ukraine playing for time while it waits, both western artillery and the shells to go with it. no answer warranty for what we have cues of people wanting to sign up to fight roughly, but we have more than the army can take on it. it was a bizarre, but we just don't have enough weapons to equip every one who wants to fight richard
10:38 pm
a from a bullet news of judge nipple to push the will come of it. it was leveled an army. ukraine is in europe's very own interest. victor tells us, he just can't understand why this seems to be so little urgency with a little of little missouri. what does a favor of west fighting for all of you are p other for sure, baldwin putin won't be satisfied with taking ukraine in the dinner. if he winks here, he'll terry on an attack or the theme where you can be there. laser, sort of with the growth, with grain is already paying a high price for being out gunned with daily casualties running at several $100.00 a day. or 2 possibly were victor tells us of a call he had to make recently informing the parents of the youngest member of their unit. then 19 year old son had been killed to sweeps after he got different lines. he doesn't want to make many more clues like that and he's convinced western weapons the answer. well, enjoying now by e. her is of his,
10:39 pm
the ukrainian president, zalinski is foreign policy advisory saucer. the deputy heard of the president's office. this was okay. good to have you on the program. i want to talk about the situation on the front lines just a moment, but i'd like to start with this historic week. how confident are you that ukraine will get the green light from the european union this week to begin these fast track of session talks? well, the 1st those that didn't use the got the previous speak was the opinion of the european commission, and many would not believe this opinion would be positive. now i have this positive opinion break. imagine the european union member states to support these up in you . plus also we have the support of several leaders of the european countries. johnson shows present monochrome prime minister druggie, produced a right to support his phone conversation with president key. so definitely this is
10:40 pm
a consensus decision. you cannot be 100 percent. sure, you can be sure all you have to visit decisions may. but he, we have more positive then even several days before expectations on the final decision or the european council. you know that joining the european union is a process that takes years and can sometimes take decades. ukrainians, expecting it to be fast track, do you have confidence that your country can pull this off the, at the same time, trying to fight off the russian military? well that's with the fast track that we were shown in throughout the last 4 months . i mean, just to remind you, we, someone did application for membership on the feed day war and less than the, within the 44 months, we are about to receive the kind of the standards within the record, high speed for any country before ours became candidate or even member, we filled in the questioner with just one month,
10:41 pm
the process which would usually take more than a year for what the country. so which gives me all the reasons to say that ukraine will be moving with the same direction. but definitely not. overton will depend on your grade who would like to the european union and its member states to have at least half a speed you grant is moving. to was the pothole the forms. we are ready to make further reforms despite the war and especially after we will win the war. well, let's, let's assume that the european union says yes to this fast speed. the fast lane for the session talks on. what is ukraine going to give you in return? are you under pressure from the european union to possibly take actions to bring this war to an end sooner rather than later? and i'm also talking about perhaps giving up territory to russia in the name of peace. that's not true and neither leader i wish spoke to my
10:42 pm
president, he's visits in key or during the phone conversations which my person have numerous for day. so me personally, i haven't heard any indications for these are that leader inclining ukraine to, to make any decisions or to move sooner speed to end the war which is not, do not need just to end the work when to when we need to have all the ukranian territories back so no one is able, you know, to make my president to any inclination or any sensations of any territories, you'll find the last to the last, each of the green insert. it was not want any other story. but when you bring in territory, fight all the time, you say you want to win the war, you can only win this war. if you have enough weapons, are you getting the, the heavy weapons, the artillery that you need right now to push the russians back?
10:43 pm
well right, you are much, you know, everything depends on whether we will attain a weapon, ofa or for heavy weapon. in fact to that. so i go to system, but not only that's about m, unless it's about arm of the eagles, it's both dance up. if you asked me whether the progress is going on, yes, it's much more progressive and the speed is much more high than it used to be in the beginning of war. then many of the states would not even believe ukraine would be able to sustain russian aggression. remember, some military experts would not leave you grand more than 3 or 5 days, which consented there somehow or with a plan which rush ahead. so nobody wanted so that ukraine is capable of ukraine, knows how to fight your grain knows not only how to defend, but how to counter attack and to win. and this ramstein nation, the so it already broad lost. the monster shows that the world believes in you. great. no. it's high time to to act with a high speed and deliver to the weapons to the director of your grade. that's what
10:44 pm
near after that is doing. yeah, we will, we will see definitely this week and how fast things progress, mr. your is off of the foreign policy advisor to ukrainian president zalinski. we appreciate your time and your insights tonight. thank you. thank you. oh, georgia villa is honoring to ukrainian journalist with freedom of speech award for their work documentary, the siege of mario pole. if jenny muller let cup and mc slumped chair notes or filmed missiles hitting apartment buildings and recorded the work of doctors and undertakers, as well as documenting the suffering of countless victims, their images of a maternity hospital destroyed by russian bombs. those images were seen around the world, t w's. benjamin alvarez spoke with both journalists after today's ward ceremony, and he asked about the difficulties of reporting on the war into gray. this war
10:45 pm
currently is the most dangerous war i've covered that covered cerebral. so main restriction, and the main danger is how difficult and how immensely dangerous for the life of the journalists to do their work. just to go out and shoot them right into. take photos isn't predictable, the weapons are heavy, celtic new situations are unpredictable. so just that's just as already pose, it's an immense challenge. hence there the amount of misinformation and propaganda, but that's not up to journalists to decide, you know, the son of joss or any else out. anyone who, who's in the ground in our job is just to keep reporting. do you feel that this recognition is also for ukrainian journalists and do you fear that the world might
10:46 pm
forget about them if that war goes on for several years? a thinker, all old the media war can ukrainians international risk in their lives? you know, like not on the, you know, trying to, to be on the ground, you know, but it close to the situation where it's happen in all i can tell what is going on in reality and we can see by them. but they are eyes or, and how likely it's effect on the local population, soldiers and oh, what, see, i think it's really important that the, the journalists are present on the ground and to it's might be like that because otherwise we will not see the full picture and oh, it's everywhere like it's in multiple places, it's how, how we realized what's is going on on the ground. i mean this awards is extremely important because their new cycle, unfortunately, is oregon in a way that people get used to, to violence, the scene violence and that becomes normality, unfortunately. so that's in
10:47 pm
a way de monte weights journalists as well. so these kind of awards this kind of a recognition to our work or anyone's work who is working right now in ukraine is important to support them in their efforts to continue to work. let them know that regardless of how many people consider the war normal, they need to do what they do now. are you afraid that more journalists could be the motivated to continue covering as they journalists covering the war a targeted to say that they don't want to get involved into it, or they want to leave it that the water country? i think it sometimes a big problem now the, what would the war is going on for a or a, you know, for will be close to 4 months his, you know, like, and we have like, people are tired, you know, they can see every day that's the kind of situation, you know, they the see the tears all the time, the broken houses and the broken lives. so i think the main problem now that people
10:48 pm
don't have a break, you know that all the time to have said news, but unfortunately it's working like a doctor. so like his soldiers, ah, journalists tell my to do that song. this is the 10 of miss them. on the local, thank you so much for this interview. ah. the left, his presidential candidate, gustavo pitbull, has one columbia's presidential election by a narrow margin. but the important urine significant, the former rebel gorilla, turned to senator, edged out his opponent rodolfo aradonda z. mila millionaire who is known as the donald trump of columbia. that drove when marks a drastic change in presidential politics in the country. ah, victory, and historic moment for columbia. as it votes in its 1st ever left us, lida,
10:49 pm
former rebel, gustavo petro, has vowed to launch profound social and economic change lay story annoy. well, we are writing history at this moment. ocoee, a new history for columbia, only for latin america, less dos and for the world, jonas, they thought us yellow, a new history because undoubtedly was that what has happened to day with those $11000000.00 voters as a chain esl come. what is coming is a real change, a key of fundamental change. yes. oh gambia that old gambiola al, he had cho defeated another maverick candidate, full man man and millionaire in tulsa hernandez. hernandez was gathered a lot of support for his candidacy on tick tock, promising to reduce wasteful government spending, and to go after corrupt officials. his concession speech employed petro to do the
10:50 pm
same let's say, well, doctor was 5 hopes that gustavo petro will know how to leave the country, that he will be loyal to his words, against corruption, and that he will not disappoint those who trusted in petro has a tough task ahead of him. he faces a divided congress likely to complicate his implementation of the fiscal and social reforms, his supporters accounting on. i've more nell. we want to get our correspondence. johan ramirez, he is in the colombian capital bo guitar to 9 to yon. it's good to see you. we saw that the 1st ever left us president. we've got the 1st black woman elected vice president. and i want to talk about the significance of this is not one only the optics, but you know, beneath the surface how big of a shift is this? in colombian, politics, it is a measure. i change a major shift in columbia on politics. i mean,
10:51 pm
this country has been rolled for decades for mainly to political ah parties, and over time they became an elite and that's why people blame them for not having sold the main problems of the country for not having a stopped drug trafficking is security violence, gary de groups, and that's why i mean, is this this counter with this political lead that the made kilometers last night vote for the 1st time for a leftist government? so of course, gustavo better is going to bring more social policies, the left wing on government, but it goes beyond and we have to think off his running mate, france yet, marcus, and now next, the vice president of columbia. she, i mean, 1st and foremost, as she was a victim of the war, columbia has gone through a civil war acre, an armored conflict for more than 60 year sent france jamarcus next vice president was displays the by the war. so she experienced the war fierce fan and she had,
10:52 pm
she can bring policies closer to those victims. now she's a black woman, she can bring our policies closer to this population, often forgotten by the last government says she use a single mother. so she represents many, many things that columbia women live every single day, and that's why, ah, the, they, when enough was tell a better and friends here. marcus has raised a lot of expectations of many changes in the, in the, in the for years to calm in columbia, yet they are promising to be agents of change. and wondering, can they do that in peace? columbia saw a spike in violence in the run up to the election. how tense is the situation now? it is difficult to say is hard to be to, to, to be said, but colombia has gotten used to live with violence. i mean, ah,
10:53 pm
attacks terrorist attacks attacks against the states of violence in cities, in rural areas that barge of every day life in columbia. and there is true that in the last a few months, i mean the months prior to the election, there was an increase in violence in the country, but that is also a historical fact. every electoral year in columbia is marked by an increase of violence. why? because for many sectors in the country, values by illness is also a way of doing politics. so we're the time over the time people get used to eat. so now the fear of new attacks remains. but as i said, it's hard to be said. but columbus had gotten used to it so they know how to live with it. what is the most pressing challenge for the president elect? and i understand he wants to stop or try to occur till the cocaine exporting
10:54 pm
industry, by convincing farmers to grow different crops and not to make money with making okay. i mean, is that realistic? it hasn't worked before. why should we think it will work? now? he hasn't worked before. it doesn't seem it is going to work. now if the state doesn't invest money in the rural areias, people are going to continue the with the business of drug because is a means more profitable. so the state needs to be there. but beyond of these problems, i think that the 1st that main challenge, gustavo better is going to face is to unify columbia's. i mean, the can't you went through a very polarized to lecture i campaign. i can tell you these, well, because i have been reporting on many elections in latin america, and i think this is that there are just electro campaign i have ever seen. and the a deeply divided the society. so gustavo, petro needs to unify the country again,
10:55 pm
and that's why he tried to do last night with his 1st speech, trying to unify the country, been not just the population, but also the political part. is this very important if he wants to find spaces to govern? it is clear, gustavo patrol one last night for more than a 100000 votes, is a clear victory. but we cannot forget that ravel fernandez losses with the support of more than 10000000 people. in addition to that, there are they up station east, more than 17000000 people. so if gustavo pets are, wants to roll the country and if he wants to roll for all colombians, he needs to unify this society. yeah, and we will be watching it because the, the platform in the promises they sailed, promising or have to wait and see if they can make them reality. your hunt, ramirez, reporting tonight from bogota is always your thank you the scene. well, the day's almost done. the conversation,
