10:02 am
minister maria druggie, french president, and when, well, mac cone and german chancellor, all of sholtes comes after days of speculation about a joint visit to the ukrainian capital. and as ukraine asks for more heavy weapons from western countries, and let's get an update. now from our correspondent rebecca richards. she is in chia, rebecca, the leaders of the 3 biggest countries in europe, germany, france, and italy are in kia today. what's the significance of this visit to well, terry, you're right. they arrived this morning with monica press, fan fair. 2, and they're now actually here, i'm station now, but i'm either expected to leave shortly for a trip of some of the the destruction or disaster areas around the capital cave. before heading into a very important meeting, as you say,
10:03 am
a significance of this trip is obviously a crime, desperately calling for more weapons from the west in order to push back russia before. so, you know, east and the rest of the country as well has stopped their advances with what it goes to. there's going to be attending prime minister. mr. dragging is actually leaving behind. and the other, the other latest will be following shortly. so yeah, it's very, it's a very big day, very important also comes ahead of us about the a you deciding whether or not to grant a staff in order to join the unit. he has torn sort of recession. rebecca, can the 3 you leaders expect from ukraine's protestant candidate? oh, well this fine. yeah. you know, he's obviously is growing frustrated here in a little bit has been given in what has been promised hasn't arrived yet. there is growing frustration, but i think that we met with a very friendly zelinski. i'm sure we will be putting the pressure wrong. this is a very visits and
10:04 am
a very long over to visit in the 10s of the kids. and i'm sure that the latest will be welcomed with open on tip. now we can assume that these 3 european leaders are bringing plenty of good will with them to kiya. but what about those arms that to you? you said the t a really needs in finding the russian aggression are the free european countries expected to provide any concrete support in material terms to help ukraine deal with the russian women that really remains to be seen. terry, i don't know what they'll be bringing or if they'll be bringing anything with them or they have said in the past any visits that they wouldn't come just for a photo opportunity. that was a photo opportunity for their he's all basically hope and expectation from the gradient design that they will be bringing a promise all heavy weaponry. we know that nato, yesterday, in the u. s. a military aid to the ukraine,
10:05 am
so that has been incredibly welcome. here, as you can imagine, what was going on actually concrete, come out of today's meeting, what really, really remains to be signed by rebecca. thank you very much for now. i'm sure will be coming back to you later for an update rebecca richards there in kia also nashville? well, for the, for the german perspective, i spoke with dw correspond theresa trapper. i asked her why old of shoals is visiting ukraine now and with what purpose? well, that's the big question now, terry, and we'll have shots as previously said that he wouldn't go to p of just to take a photo. and so then a somewhat raised expectations that if he does go there, he will have something to offer. and that, of course, could be more financial support, it could be more arms deliveries. after all, ukraine's president zalinski has criticized both germany and france and to a lesser extent, also italy of being too slow when it comes to arms deliveries. and of putting their
10:06 am
own prosperity ahead of ukraine's freedom and security. but these 3 could also bring good news. and with regard to ukraine's bid to become a member of the european union, because as we heard, the meeting in the visit in kiev comes just ahead of a key meeting in brussels, where the european commission is expected to propose that ukraine becomes a member of the block. why did it take chancellor short so long to visit ukraine? this, this visit has been anticipated for months. a oh yes sir. all the shots are certainly invited a lot of times since the war broke out. but back in april, there was some rift between berlin and keith because keith rebuffed on very short notice a visit by the german president flanked by to shine maya. saying that he was too close to russia, that he made mistakes and dealing with moscow in the past. and after that or left charles himself, he refused to go there for a couple of weeks. but that dispute was solved and the telephone call. and as since
10:07 am
then, several german politicians have visited, most notably foreign minister annalynn of our book, but also other ministers, the president of the dom bonus tag, and even the head of the biggest opposition party. and the fact that will have shot himself did not go for such a long time. also caused some criticism. he and germany what's being said about this diplomatic gesture here in germany. teresa well, and germans are certainly watching this visit very closely because many feel that ukraine should get all the supported needs. but at the same time, they're also worried about what the war ukraine means for their own lives. so i went out to the streets of berlin to ask people how they feel about this visit. know that's taken his finished good. i think it's good in math, he should do a lot more. he doesn't do enough am if you have to help them in half of the invoices needed latoya, it's not convincing to keep saying that ukraine has when do. but at the same time,
10:08 am
the abs deliveries being announced, a falling short of expectations, at least for the time being that it won't do to get chronic them off to minute decidedly. that's a contradiction of all that has to be resolved, somehow was over with it. is there that that it goes there to exchange views is basically good in men. he should help the people by supplying these and weapons instead of gathering is. thank you. so i think if these 3 travel they are together, they'll have something to say, i hope so that they don't just go, they are active decency. so quite a lot of suspense. he and germany as well when it comes to what charles maxwell and the army are exactly up to and kia. teresa, thank you very much, shar corresponded teresa proper there. well, as europe steps up, it show of support for ukraine of the diplomatic level. the governor in the low hunting region has again underscore the urgent need for more military support. and he says, russian forces were advancing in their assault on the key city of sir,
10:09 am
better denounced. and that your cranium troops are outmanned and outgunned, appears. fighting is taking a heavy toll on civilians not only in spirit genetic but in neighboring. there's a chance to in the distance, the sound of russian shelling for the people in missy chance. the twin city of seattle, john, yet the chance to escape is getting smaller and smaller. ukrainian police officers drive from house to house to find those who want to leave, but for many here it feels like they're giving up their town. a fuel shooter showed that there won't work and we weren't sure until it became unbearable. then i got sick. she has an endless list of illnesses and i'm also sick to put away the head brush. carol middlebrook, there was a hospital here where i would have stayed here until the very last moment. she due only a few kilometers away in seattle. the nets leaving has become nearly impossible.
10:10 am
with all the main bridges destroyed, the city is now cut off. ukraine says more than $500.00 civilians, a hiding inside the assault chemical factory alongside ukrainian soldiers. moscow announced the humanitarian corridor for the civilians, but then claimed ukrainian shelling disrupted the plan with moscow having more man, power, and weapons. it's becoming increasingly difficult for the ukrainians to hold their few remaining positions in the city. a ration deadline for the forces in the chemical plant to surrender has passed, form a ukrainian president polish ankle told the w. ukraine will not given. situation is extremely difficult and the concentration of troops there is enormous, but our heroic soldiers is keeping serve. it had been yet squee keeping their asoft are not as old but basalt chemical plan and we never surrender
10:11 am
awe away from the don bus. russian forces have been aiming for other high value targets. this footage shared by the russian military claims to show high precision low range missiles, targeting a depot in the western living region where ammunition for nature supplied weapons. a stuart is to it could be rushed as late as effort to disturb the international supply of weapons. ukrainian president learners landscape. welcome the latest pledge by washington to provide a $1000000000.00 and military aid to his country. it's the largest specific commitment to ship weapons since russia's invasion began. speaking in brussels, you are secretary of defense, lloyd austin, called on other countries to also step up support. austin says the war has reached a pivotal moment. right. so how other nato members view the war in
10:12 am
ukraine? for more our correspondent jack parent john just now from russell's jack. understand that you've been speaking with the prime minister of estonia. what did she have to tell you? that's what i tell you. i was doing a short interview with kaya. tell us this. the estonian prime minister, there's a be few weeks of international meetings which are all going to be focused on ukraine. coming up. we have a new summit when they're going to be talking about ukraine's accession process. it's applications to join the european union. and also we have the nato summit in madrid. now, one of the things that i asked the prime minister was what she thinks of other e u. leaders and other western leaders cooling and continuing to speak to the russian president vladimir putin. she said that people shouldn't do that because of the messages coming out of the kremlin. take a listen. these are always for genocide. and if you look at the messages that we
10:13 am
get from the pc, it is also that the soldiers are really picking up saying exactly the same thing. why are they doing the war crimes there? i mean, i quote, to raise every, not war for example, or to kill nazis. they seize the consequences and those people have to be held responsible. so i don't see any point in, in really calling and trying to communicate with the war criminal. they have to be prosecuted strong words. they're from the stony and prime minister. understand you also asked her jack about the prospect of the membership for ukraine and other countries. sick? listen, i think the more we put the countries in the same box, the less it is, the possibility that, you know, ukraine, for example, gets the candidate status. and of course, if the candidate status is there, then you, you do or you get the membership or if you do the reforms,
10:14 am
so it goes hand in hand. and this is very important. the other thing that you mentioned was the, with the boy and countries, and there i totally support their having a big candidate status because they have done all the necessary steps. and i know that this is also very important for many other member states that the west and boys are treated equally in this regard. subject a stony as perspective on these issues line up with the view of other e members. things. yeah, good question. terry, to be honest, this is the big issue of the moment because we've been reporting exclusively on d w that the european commission is considering withdrawing and separating george's application to join the european union away from that of moldova and ukraine. all 3 countries applied at the same time after the invasion in early march,
10:15 am
the evasion of a c at the end of february, but they applied in early march for each candidate status. and the question is, is it probably within a matter of 48 hours, we'll say we're going to hear the european commissions opinions on this. and then next week they will be presenting that opinion to you. leaders who are going to decide whether they will grant candidate status to these countries. not only is this important politically for the countries, but it's also extremely symbolic. and i think what we heard from kayak, alice, that what she was saying is that they shouldn't be put all in the same box, moldova, georgia, and ukraine. and i think the reason is, is the leaders want to show the symbolism to ukraine, where the war is going on. but they're not so keen on opening candidate status to other countries. specifically, georgia, which may be sort of trade and economically well aligned with the european union at the moment, but it's politically quite a long way away from what any candidate country might be considered to want to be from a brussels perspective. terry. jack, thank you so much,
10:16 am
shar corresponded jack parrot. they're in brussels now, some other stories making headlines around the world today. un refugee agency says the number of displaced people worldwide has risen to a 100000000. as the highest number recorded since world war 2 rushes invasion of ukraine is one of several crises that have pushed the number fire. u. s. federal reserve has approved its largest single interest rate hike in almost 30 years. 3 quarters of a percentage point increase is the largest since 1994 consumer prices in the us reach to 40 year high and may with costs for food, gasoline, and housing, all rising faster than expected. central bank hopes the adjustment will help tame. soaring inflation. also in the u. s. a panel, the advisors to the food and drug administration has endorsed coven 19 shots for
