6:04 am
the amount of rockets, the amount of on multiple rocket launch systems that have been fired, artillery shells disease, but stupefied at this point in him both directions. the recently, the sound, this crescendo of sound and tidal wave, a rule of artillery has moved further north. so obviously the fighting has moved a little bit towards the north. perhaps the woods and the ukrainian side of the conflict like a it is continuing recently. we saw you with a jet ra overhead. something that hasn't been seen in this part of ukraine east than you create in many years. and the military aviation we've been civilian aviation had been bad according to the sci fi that had been in place, but had been violated sporadically. and increasingly, within the last 2 weeks, we had seen shelling of power stations of residential neighborhoods of a vehicle,
6:05 am
civilian vehicles, multiple debt, see over the course of the last few weeks, weeks. and this is all, this is all again, come to come to a, a peak. this is the a rupture that had been in the, in the, in the making for many days. now, we know that all over ukraine, there have been strikes on military infrastructure. the russian ministry of defense saying that it had used deployed precision weapons. and we have seen, according to we as of yet, and verified videos of russian caliber cruise missiles, shrieking of the skies of ukraine targeting munitions dobbs, an air field targeting assets of the ukrainian air force as well as anti air defenses. and according to the fired some of the fires with whom raging in these and these videos, they could only have his fuel depos, which, which bird intensely. and he produced huge plumes of smoke or ammunition slows
6:06 am
ammunition, depos, which also burn with repeated explosions. perhaps that is the sound that we're hearing from bar soap last port and near keith. we've also heard from the russian and ministry of defense that they have seen. they have detected mass desertion. and the ranks of, of the ukrainian military soldiers abandoning their post, abandoning their vehicles that, that tax, their weapons and fleeing the russian federation. and the la guns republic had previously said that, that any soldiers, any ukrainian troops who choose to return to their homes won't be stopped and won't be impeded as they do so. and they encouraged him to do so. we've also heard from the ukranian minister of defense himself coming out and urging everyone who could carry a gun to join the ukrainian military. so perhaps the situation for them is desperate
6:07 am
. indeed, we've also heard from the ukrainian military, i just now about a 6 russian jet. they claim that they have shot down. we haven't seen evidence of any jets yet, shot down, which are presumably would happen very quickly. i mean, they produce wrecks, which is easily recognizable and which is easy to find the, the, the files that they course of the luggage republic. also just an hour ago the authorities hip claim that they had also down to ukrainian jets. again, the that can't be verified, the hasn't been any footage or anything of the like the republics he has said that they are now on the offensive that they are liberating of the republic of the la guns as it was within the boundaries when it was a part of reason of ukraine, them a significant part of that territory is now under the ukrainian under ukrainian military control. but they are saying that they are progressing, that they have a plan and that they are moving forward again, the situation developing very quickly. there's a lot more of it,
6:08 am
we don't have time to talk about. but the situation is again, developing very quickly and we're trying to keep on top of things. the city of damascus has been on their very intensive or artillery fire of the last few days. last night i was probably of some of the loudest times that we've heard here also this morning, very intensive shelling. however, the situation at the moment right now is much more calm and i'm talking about the center of done ask of course said the fighting. we still hear artillery fire mortars, answer multiple rocket launch. systems, however, is becoming more and more distant, but the very fierce fighting is said taking place on the outskirts of the network at the moment. for example, this city of ye lenika, where our crew are t arabic are at sea france and also a roughly video agency are working at the moment. well, they have
6:09 am
a recorded that's a very intensive shooting. his going on there were working with a local residence trying to get their perspective on what was going on and during their live broadcast so that they could hear the sounds of shelling very near by now the sound of you then of course only a couple of kilometers away from the front line, and it's been a sheltered many, many times over the last 8 years. and at the moment says the water supply is a cut off to of that village and also settlements and nearby. also, there is no power and we visited the village of 11 coach the other dates along with the red cross who delivered to a water tank and the bottled water for the locals to ease. somehow, for their existence of the moment, those people who didn't evacuate to russia,
6:10 am
those who stayed on the front lines in their homes while they are spending most of their time in bomb shelters at the moment, just like it was back in 2014, in 2015 during a massive, a war that was happening for over here. i meanwhile, dentist, people's a republic representative from the people's militia said that they're using all available methods in order to strike ukrainian positions. and that is a force being done so that the rest of the dentist, people's republic, which is currently under ukrainian army control, will be liberated. now, according to the people's militia, ukraine already re retreated from my 2 towns other than his people's republic. and there now they have now established their control in those 2 places. on denise pushing the head of the nest people's republic also issued a statement earlier saying that this operation will soon be over. and all of that
6:11 am
then as people republic will be liberated from the ukrainian army. and he also said that the headquarters of the ukrainian army army operation here and on boss was practically destroyed by the people militia a little bit earlier. now also other intense fighting that's going on in the don't s people's republic at the moment is in the south of the nation very close to the city of maria upa. very heavy shelling and intense fighting is happening between the 2 warring sides, according to people's militia. some of the ukrainian soldiers have been retreated, re meeting, edward, missouri and the representative of the army. i here said that's territorial defense . but sally and so for ukraine, those who are affiliated with the neo nazi ideology,
6:12 am
and i believe they have now in circle the city of marine apple, which is in the south of the country. and there preventing local residents from leaving that sound from evacuating. thus making a human shield out of them. now edward, missouri and the representative of the people's militia, along with the head of the dentist peoples republic, called on the ukrainian army soldiers to lay down their arms and said that those who leave their weapons behind will be provided to humanitarian court and can leave. and can go home and amnesty will be provided for all the time. oh, i'm not in the video was our film by our crew on the front line in the gwinnett square public where heavy shutting as we understand continues, is pretty difficult to make out in the pictures, frankly. but russia's defense ministry says ukrainian force is
6:13 am
a fire at the don bass city. as the head of the republics recently said that both sides were shelling each other along the contact lines. now a series of powerful explosions have been reported all across parts of ukraine. this morning, a loud blasts rocked several cities off there. russia did launches military operation. now it's being reported. the explosions were caused by missiles strikes ultimately from russia's. aerospace force is not let us take a pause in the program just for a moment to give you some updates on some of the information that it's coming to us right now. as we understand a to russian civilian cargo ships came under a missile attack, allegedly, by the ukrainian armed forces in the sea of as of, as you understand, there are people who are wounded. this is information coming from russia's f. s b, the intelligence services latest on twitter, the tweet from the ukranian president vladimir zalinski. he is saying that ukraine will lift sanctions on all citizens of ukraine who are ready to defend our country
