4:06 pm
taken to a formal penal colony in russian controlled territory, while the wounded were taken to hospital for treatments. ukraine once a prisoner swamp, a rush's parliament is considering banning the exchange of as of members for russian prisoners of war. crimes president says some fight is still inside that plant. i said bake has more from john april. he said that the evacuation is been overseen by the ukrainian military and intelligence, and he said, the most influential international mediator so that we understand that there's still some fighters there, but the ones that have been evacuated earth, most of them have been taken all of them in fact, having taken to russian control the russian held territory, but russia says that there will be treated by international standards. but also the russians are saying that they would like to investigate some of these nations for crimes against a, against a civilian population. now that's obviously propaganda coming from russia. they've held on to this line that they have invaded ukraine to de nazi fight. but what's
4:07 pm
interesting about specifically about mario paul and the as of battalion is that this kind of fees, the russian narrative as of battalion it is a far right. a battalion, it was incorporated into ukraine's military infrastructure. and many of its members have been linked to far right groups. now that serves the russian propaganda machine. however, ukraine says that this battalion was incorporated into its military infrastructure and has now changed. but the as of battalion is seen as to death, are seen as the defenders of mary uphold the strategic port city. and this is very important for russia. this is their biggest victory to date in terms of this war and many other parts of the country's, their face set back. so, president vladimir putin want to make the most act of the situation and marable as could be viewed from moscow. now where did dosage barry, joe? so what was said in russian parliament, the drama about this mario post steel plant operation.
4:08 pm
well, according to the speaker of duma i, he said that these are not see criminals and that they should not be exchanged with any russian soldiers. that are in ukrainian custody, and that there should be a trial set for them to at really show the international community what they have done allegedly, to our russian soldiers. we've also been hearing from a very prominent figure within the ad duma. and that is li noise, slootsky who is also a part of the a russian negotiating team with the ukrainians in those ongoing talks that have since a stop. he's had some very and severe views about how the as of sol, battalion member should be treated while they're in russian custody. he said they should use the death penalty and that they should really be put forth and a tribunal. i core international court where they have to answer for their a legit war crimes that they've committed. according to this lawmaker, there's
4:09 pm
a sense that despite the fact that the mariel bull is now in russian control, and that the last remaining pocket of resistance, which was this as of style plants is being evacuated and almost complete. there's still no m complete victory for the russians. the narrative that is coming out of the russian media and lawmakers makes it clear that now the main focus is that they hang on to these lighters. and that they are not in favor of any kind of prison exchange in the coming weeks and months ahead. and i'm also more generally how a diplomatic talks going between moscow and keith. well, those talks began on february 28th just forty's, after russia launched, it's so called special military operation into ukraine. and many here believed that the dual track negotiations that were ongoing despite what was happening on the ground in that ukraine was really the main purpose of this operation to get the key
4:10 pm
of government to negotiate certain things that the russians were looking for. now, since at saturday we heard from the russian president vladimir putin, who says that that talks have been suspended. he didn't provide any further detail about why they've been suspended. but we've been hearing from dmitri pess called the spokesperson of the kremlin, who said that the talks have indeed stopped. and this is the 1st time that we're aware of since they began in february that they have completely suspended, negotiated with each other, which really begs the question, what will happen next? will they resume that discussions at any point in the near future? and what is the main goal now at this stage if they're not talking to each other? so for now, the talks are suspended whether or not their resume remains to be seen, but it's certainly not a positive indication of things to come. no, not positive at all. thank you very much for that update dosage of our love for us in moscow. thank you. a russian soldier has pleaded guilty to killing an unarmed
4:11 pm
ukrainian civilian. he made the play on wednesday as a cave caught began hearing ukraine's 1st war crimes trial of the conflict. the 21 year old sergeant, nevada, and miss she, she moraine is charged with teaching a 62 year old civilian through an open car window. he's facing life in prison and russia is continuing. it's offensive in southern new crime. the honda abdel hamid is in the mc alive that was bombed earlier on wednesday. this is actually a strike that happened at around 520 this morning. now this is what you see behind me is a cluster of one story, residential houses that this is really the epi center of that strike. and everything you can see around me is completely destroyed. they are injured, but no one died in the strike, which is actually difficult to believe. if you just look at the,
4:12 pm
the magnitude of the destruction here, you can see everything is completely charged and burned. and if you, if i was good, can show your inside. there is really absolutely nothing left. we spoke to the owner of this house. she is not injured, but certainly this is really a lifetime of memories gone in ashes. now the issue here nikolai, is that this happens on a daily basis. there are as strikes that miss any kind of target, there is an air defense system in place. but more and more this city is being targeted. we spoke to military officials in and up over the past 2 days and they say that they're being shelled either from the south. the have southern region which is now occupied by the roches all firm, or what they believed to be miss out said from the black sea. and also people are now more worried certainly with the changes on the ground in where you put the is.
4:13 pm
i believe that now that russia is more or less in control of mar, you pull, it has this land, poor a door from russia all the way to the crimea. it allows people, it allows the russia to reinforce as president in the have southern region and may be pushed stewards here. because if you recall, in the 1st stages of this war, the russians had actually arrived very close to the a town of 400000 people is on. the black sea is, is known for its shipyards at the soviet time. and they wanted to push and russia stated and wanted to take all this land, all the way to the blackboard. see the seaport of odessa, and maybe also link all the way to more dover. so there is a certain worry that at some point there could be a push, even though we've been yesterday to the outskirts to the towns and villages around nikolai of do ukrainians have managed to push the russians back. now the issue is,
4:14 pm
is the other wash is going to have a counter offensive now that the situation in my, you post seems to be more or less under their control. the european union is pushing forward with plans to abandon the use of brushing energy. it's proposing a $315000000000.00 package that includes more efficient use of fuels and a faster rollout of renewable power. european commission president as lavonne de lion says, the initiative is to help a you countries when themselves, off russian, oil and gas you're relies on russia for about 40 percent. if it's gas supplies, there's plenty more head on this news hour, including i'm the 3 and newman in havana standing in one of the countless lines or cuban say they are spending too much of their lives. coming up. i'll tell you why. 2 countries to governments, rather one country rival administration, fight for control in one of africa's oil rich nations

4:17 pm
a number of his officials are using words that i feel like, are you careful or not strong enough to make sure that there's really government knows we're extremely serious about again, upholding human rights we found hypocritical, we say, well, whole human rights and other countries and post war crimes. but when it comes to the apartheid government of israel, we are pilot and israel's prime minister has been challenged in parliament to reveal the truth about the officer who shot and killed showing that black left a member of the can s. it confronted him totally banish on monday. i thought charlotte. yeah. hi. how are you? good. i knew serene on both the personal and family level. i'm challenging the prime minister bennett, and i'm telling him in front of everyone that he knows the identity of the officer who shot sharina. i'm sure you know from which

a jeep the officer shot her from. you know, the rifle and telescopic lens, he used to kill serene. i know you are lying. you are a lawyer in money, because if i lied, the entire world would know. it's not me who's called the swindler by everyone. and once again, i challenge you that, you know, from which the chief, the officer shot her from much and you know, the rifle and the telescopic lens used to kill sri data could get to the world. news in the us is easing some sanctions on venezuela to encourage talks between president nicholas missouri and the opposition. the us recognizes opposition later won gladto as venezuela, legitimate president and imposed sanctions to try and out. maturer, washington says any major lifting of sanctions will depend on progress made at the negotiating table. for more on this, i'm bringing out what has corresponding kimberly. how could,
4:19 pm
who joins us live now. hello that, kimberly what's behind this move and what sanctions are being lifted? well, what i can tell you about why this is happening now. you have to remember that this is coming just one day after the by the administration. also relax some restrictions on cuba is that basically these are back to back move. they're done in coordination and the timing is no accident. now in terms of the easing of the sanctions that are coming on oil rich, venezuela. what this is, is really a reef focusing of some of the biden administration's policy on the western hemisphere. and until now, there had been largely a focus on asia and the asia pacific region, but there is a new focus on this western hemisphere. and the reason is, is that there is a largely a setting of the table for an event that is set to take place next month in los
4:20 pm
angeles. and that, of course, is the summit of the americas. now, some of these moves are controversial, even with members of the president's own democratic party on capital hill. for example, bob melendez, a member of the form relations committee. not having particularly with some of the changes to cuba policy. also, the president getting some criticism about his decision to ease some of the policies with regard to venezuela. given the fact that this does seem to be an appearance of working with governments with controversial policies, particularly when it comes to human rights in favor of easing some of the domestic challenges here, namely the very high oil prices, something that this administration denies. it says this is squarely on focusing on improving the lives of people within the region. and that is the motivation for these back to back decisions. and kimberly, you mentioned cuba, their president biden is also easing some trump error restrictions on cuba. what
4:21 pm
impact will that have on cuban people? this is significant because for so long the cuban people have been isolated. even a, some of their family members are living so close proximity. many of them have, there's a large di asked for a living in the us state of florida, very close by often sending money. these valuable remittances are known, have been kept as of late, and this has been kept at about a $1000.00 mark that is now being lifted. and this is going to provide a valuable injection of money into the economy. another policy that's being lifted is the valuable visa program that had allowed for cubans to come to the united states that had been kept at $20000.00. or now this will be something that will be open to opt in terms of the family reunification program. this will also allow for direct travel, something that americans have not been able to do prior. if they wanted to even try
4:22 pm
and get around it, they would often have to go to canada and then fly directly from toronto or vancouver, montreal, one of those major cities. so this is something that is significant because it's going to provide much needed tourism dollars inject that into the economy. and again, give provide the much needed economic boost that so many say that this island nation is needed for so long in day. thank you very much. for bringing up to speed, what has corresponding kimberly, how could live for us there? thank you. as kimberly mentioned key bait is facing its worse to economic crisis in 30 years. the last time life was this hard was when it subsidies from the former soviet union ended. tens of thousands of cubans are flame, the island in search of a better life. a latin american editor, lucy newman, has moved from ivana. i'm standing in one of the countless lines were cubans are telling us that they are spending the greater part of their lives these days. this
4:23 pm
is just one line. there's learned just about every corner to my basic goods from a bottle of oil to cigarettes with their ration cards. and that doesn't mean that they're necessarily inexpensive. it just means that they might have a chance to buy them. this in cuba has become the new normal 55 year old low, the lena she lit that is returning home empty handed, after spending hours in the queue to buy. but her life is a struggle. she says, especially since her daughter migrated to spain, leaving her to care for her grandchildren. not her monthly minimum wage was $20.00 at the black market rate. our. she shows us her refrigerator full mostly of water, while on the new r lucelle, i have 4 children to feed up. i have no choice but to go on the street to solve this and that a lot. she explains the chicken by 10 packs of cigarettes for $200.00 pesos on her ration card and sell each one for a $150.00 on the flourishing informal market. a long lines for everything from food
4:24 pm
to fuel revealed in economy in distress. law people's tempers are short from chewing most of the day. in this case, for 2 bottles of oil, scarce items are sold with a ration card, but most things are no longer subsidized. what are you with around bill? and it think when i got it i'm, i've been here since 5 a. m. and i've got numbers 1170. it's now 10 am. and there at least 800 people in line hoping to buy chicken cubes. cash starved economy is collapsing under the weight of harsh economic sanctions imposed by washington and append demik. that's paralyzed tourism cubis. economic engine, in all this, aggravated by 3 digit inflation sparked by a long overdue monetary reform. but often i saw last united duncan, the boy, a faded, we were obliged to devalue
