9:02 am
one sunday. ah, ah, i'm a new cubes, mckinnon. welcome to the program. we begin in the ukraine, where officials say russian forces have taken control of this country's 2nd biggest power plant. british military intelligence that mercenaries from the russian private military company, wagner had captured territory near the power plant in recent days. now ukraine's soviet era, the flu husk power station is the latest loss in the east and don bass region. it comes as president volota, ms. lensky said ukraine was preparing to increase its electricity exports to the european union to help it withstand prussia from russia over energy supplies. i am at home and he to lose mathias bellinger is in odessa, covering the story for us. and i asked him to give us the latest on the fighting in ukraine. yes,
9:03 am
so we've heard that the russians are seemingly in control of this power plan. this has been a target for the russians for many weeks now. and a few days ago, they had already captured part of the territory. now, one of the presidents advisors has said that they are in full control of the facility. we don't still don't have a confirmation from the armed forces or from other sources, but it looks like that and fits very much, the pattern of what we've been seeing in the east that russia concentrates is offensive on one object. and then for weeks and weeks, shells it and then takes it. these are so russia is making steady gains, but they are in itself in themselves, each one in themselves, incremental. it takes a long time for them to capture any object or settlement. but so far they have added up, although we also hearing that the pace is slowing down and that ukraine has been able to repel a quite
9:04 am
a few offensives in other parts of the country. that means north east, near hargrove and south in the his own region, ukraine is making incremental gains. they have started to counter offensive in the south, but there is no fast progress yet. it seems that we are still in the preparation phase of this counter offensive. and the ukraine has not made big territorial gains, but they are, as they say themselves, advancing slowly. so rushes pace is flowing isn't clear now that the, the newly provided weapons from the west are helping the ukrainian counter offensive to, to really build an engine. what these weapons do at the moment is that they help us ukraine to prepare the terrain for the counter offensive. so the most important ones are long range artillery and multiple rocket launches. these weapons can target
9:05 am
a targets well behind. the russian lines. and ukraine has used them, for example, to take out ammunition depots. and they also shelled a bridge near hassan region recently. that's an important that's an important target because this bridge is the only one that crosses the river in that area. and it's, it's a major blow to russian supply line. so what we're seeing is that ukraine is method methodically, a, preparing the ground for this offensive. it's not clear whether they have the means to move on because some categories of weapons that you would need need to move on. for example, tanks are not yet being delivered by the west in the same pace or in the, in the necessary quantities. so there's a big question mark on whether this offensive can move on as planned. but what we are seeing is that they may methodically prepare it. and the other effect of these weapons is,
9:06 am
and in the places like in the east where ukraine is currently as far as we know, not preparing to advance, that they slow down the russian advance by taking out these ammunition depos. ukraine has been able in some parts of the front line to decrease ration shelling by multiple times, mathias billing a reporting from a data. thank you so much. now russia's attack on ukraine has cost lives and destroyed infrastructure, but it's also battered to the mental health of many ukrainians. psychologists struggling to help adults and children deal with the impact. d. w correspondent, nick spicer visited the devastated town of burra junker and found that even reminders of historical violence. contrib new anxiety to shell choked ukrainians. during the occupation, somebody put a bullet hole through the head of ukraine's national poet, terra schiff, jenko psychologist, tenure sauce go tells of

9:19 am
finest also say that fire education and preparation are most critical. some residents, like nick smith and his fiance, she and michelle took matters in their own hands successfully. as soon as the fire came for them, they have the necessary tools to protect their home though a dozer and other heavy machinery. this was on fire. that was on fire, highest behind on fire, and it was starting to wrap around. so already yes. fire everywhere. the reality for many of the 3000 deployed fire fighters who still fight the oak fire at its frontline. however, a day without strong wind helps. they can use every les, this is front line fire fighting right there. there's the active fire oak fire. you see the smoke in the background, and that's why we have the staging ground here, firefighters and helicopters. they go to a what is called a dip. the dip is a pond in the back yard of a resident who have been evacuated on this day. 3 choppers get water from here and dump it over the fire. if everything works out,

9:21 am
they're seeking success in the local music. now some exciting sports news and in football, germany are through to the final of europe 2022. after being france, 2 to one germany, that women kept there cool, and a fiercely contested match in milton keynes and the u. k. captain alexander pop netted both goals and she's now the joint top scorer of the tournament and her team will face england in the final at london's wembley stadium on sunday. it's and more on what will surely be an ethnic germany, england battle. i'm joined by our sports reporter max merrill max. let's start though with that, the 70 final between germany and france. bit of a slow start, but then it became a pretty great game. yeah, it was fairly katie at the beginning. both team sort of feeling it out, you could sense maybe a little bit of nerves as well and respect for each other. germany scored 1st,
9:22 am
but then also conceded the very 1st goal of the tournament man of forms beaten for the 1st time. she then said after the match, i'm not too bothered about that and she pulled up 3. superb saves in the 2nd half to keep germany in it. but i have to single out a different player. the captain alexander pope, who is an absolute force of nature really dynamic player. and both goals rate really showed that side of her. and she's now level with beth, meet on 6 goals of england for the tournaments top striker. but as a 31 year old is quite surprising. this is her 1st euros, especially considering she's one of the best players of her generation. she's making up for lost time because she was injured a couple of times throughout her career, most recently out for 10 months with double knee surgery works her way all the way back from that long road back. and she didn't even start germany's 1st match. that was lear, sheila in her position who then got cove it and then that opened the window for alexandra pop to be a starter. and she's not looked back since in 5 james 6 goals. so fantastic. when
9:23 am
for germany, but all credit to her, you know, to store a yeah. but now of course, sunday, and in wembley, of all places, england versus germany. knowing you have both british and german possible. it's, i'm going to ask you who's going to win? well, it's always tough for me. when this happens, it's ornaments. i think it's going to be close. i sort of see germany just a little bit ahead because of the tournament expertise. i think as we look closer than 2009 final between these 2, which ended up 62 and germany's favor most recently at wembley and germany 121 that was in 2019 then earlier this year, england one. so it's going to be closed. i think these are the 2 stand out teams at euro 2022. and we're going to have a real show piece for a final in front of around $90000.00 fans that are sold out, wembley. and both these teams have depth install power. i keep coming back to this, which is a coach is dream and a lethal mix really, but they're facing off against each other. i probably say england's attack is
9:24 am
a bit better. germany's defense a little bit better, but it's fine margins and you look at the coach setting of each month for the netherlands last time around this time. she's england coach. she want it with her native netherlands back in 2017. so she knows what to expect. and what she will certainly expect is a high press from germany who have seen england be a little bit weak when it comes to that when they get pressure early and germany a so good at that. but whatever way it goes, i think it's going to be a cracking final on sunday. anything final at wembley, on sunday, we are looking forward to next. now. thank you so much. all right, for several years, south korea korea's k pop music genre has been one of the world's most successful entertainment industry is it's may global stars of korean group such as bts, things from other countries are also seeking success in korea now. but they're finding it to be a tough business. ah,
