3:07 pm
some remarks of how been made. for example, when french president matter and macro was saying that a de west must be careful not to humiliate russia. you know, when you're saying that to people who every day there and you're to war to families who have lost relatives in the military or as civilians because of the rush and aggression against their country. well, this doesn't go down quite well. and likewise at the german presidents determine chancellor, having all that shows or has that, you know, has been very timid about talking about the german support to your quinn, which exists and which is very consistent. the problem is the results are not visible for your finance people and that's something that did also didn't go down well. so the 2 leaders are not very well liked by to population, but of course they will receive and they received a very warm welcome from ukraine and president below the newsletter as their reporting lot from kids. thank you very much.
3:08 pm
to date, the journal government has approved the delivery of around 350000000 euros worth of weapons to ukraine. keith has been making urgent calls for more weapons such as tanks and multiple rocket launch systems. both our been accusations from the position here in berlin to that germany has dragged its heels when it comes to supply and heavy weapons. all i've shown it's under pressure. wherever he goes, the german chancellor feels compelled to defend germany's record on military support for ukraine. as the solder thought from another vista, germany is one of the main military supporters of ukraine. the nobody delivers as much as us on the dodged. understood as capero, few that are also doing a lot like the united states. but germany is one of the countries that has committing its capabilities on a very large scale from funky verbiage guidelines, etc. we have provided large numbers of anti tank weapons, anti aircraft,
3:09 pm
missiles and ammunition in huge quantities ming but the weapons germany has so far provided a small fry compared to heavy weapon systems, other countries of already delivered. and that ukraine says it desperately needs an historic vote. at the end of april, the german parliament agreed to supply heavy weapons to ukraine. but so far, not a single piece of heavy artillery has reached ukraine from germany. but much has been promised part of shots pledge, a 7 german made how it said to thousands ukrainian soldiers currently being trained her to use the met a german army base to how it says will likely be sent to ukraine at the end of june . the german chancellor also agreed to provide 50 k part or cheater antiaircraft tanks, the 1st of which could be delivered in july. at the start of june, schultz announced that iris
3:10 pm
t surface to air missiles would also be ready for ukraine's use. these missiles are germany's most modern air defense system and would enable ukraine to defend an entire city from russian air attacks shall said. again, there is no clear deadline for when ukraine will receive them. on a recent visit to berlin, the head of ukraine's parliament welcomed schultz announcement, but stressed that deliveries needed to arrive quickly with dozens of ukrainians dying every day. the country has no time to lose your hands president, have la garza lensky has well come the latest pledged by washington to provide $1000000000.00 and military a to ukraine. it's the largest specific commitment to ship weapons since rushes invasion began. speaking and brussels. nato chief yearns stoughton back. welcome to the announcement yesterday by the united states to further increase the support for ukraine. anti pledge that nato countries would remain united in this effort. and
3:11 pm
yesterday, after the defense minister only thing, oh, it was a strong message from all naval allies importers that we are prepared for long hold on a dollars are prepared to continue to provide substantial, unprecedented support to ukraine. instruct back speaking there. yesterday, friends, presidents, my call was signaling a desire for ukraine to negotiate with russia. is that a widely a view widely shared by other nato countries? that's a question i put to the w's terry shoals at the nato headquarters in brussels. well, you're hard, it really depends on what you're talking about. i don't think there are any countries who don't believe that peace negotiations between ukraine and rush are, are a desirable end. but that, that ukraine should somehow give up territory or be willing to, to lay down its arms while russia continues is onslaught in the country. you won't find a lot of nato allies vocally supporting that view. and there was
3:12 pm
a lot of outreach with these comments by mccoy, not the 1st time. he said something like this and by comments even by german chancellor, olive schultz in the past. you know, remarks that russia should not be humiliated that it must be treated as a great power. of course, they're the countries that are supporting ukraine so, so strongly don't believe that ukraine should have to do back down in the face of this. and so, yeah, there's a lot of anger and i, you know, some of the most a vehement opponents of these, you are the baltic states who are consistently saying that there shouldn't even be phone calls to vladimir putin were reminding that, you know, nobody was calling adolf hitler during world war 2 and asking him what he thought should happen. next, you mentioned the baltic states, they love the us defense minister said he wants more nato troops on his fed up of paying for the launch of all those. so is night or beginning to show some cracks there. well, i'm not surprised at all by those comments by the latvian defense minister. you
3:13 pm
know, not only are the baltic countries among those who spend more than 2 percent of their g, d, p on their own militaries. but they're, of course, the countries with the most to lose should the kremlin, make another unexpected move and decided to cross the border into a nato territory. so what is actually be staying in germany? that is something that the baltic states are not at all happy about, because that they, they want more boots on the ground right there on the border with russia. they feel that this is the only effective way to deter russia. and in the worst case, of course, to defend their territories against a russian incursions that we're going to be hearing a lot more about these plans as we head into the nato summit, the end of the month. we may even be hearing more about it today. but certainly the baltic states and the other frontline eastern flank countries are going to want to hear that there will be boots on the ground in a persistent presence of persistent nato presence on their territories. atara we've been discussing the germany's lack of speed of delivering heavy weapons a lot today in from the viewpoint of the nato partners that us germany doing and
3:14 pm
off and is germany doing enough foster? well, there has been a lot of pressure by nato allies on germany and, and now they are stepping forward. the u. s. defense secretary lloyd austin yesterday mentioned germany very positively and pointing out that the german government had now decided to send 3. i'll be at not for multiple runt launch rocket systems to ukraine and that's something the u. s. is providing for the u. k is providing 3 and germany is providing 3 as well. so that's something that certainly is very welcome to. but as your previous guest explained, there are a lot of questions about why germany didn't do more and didn't do it sooner. and i think that the country, asking those questions a, with the most emotion is of course ukraine. but again, as you, as defense secretary austin pointed out yesterday, when you're in the middle of a war and nothing can come fast enough, it's never going to be enough. and so he said it's understandable that ukraine is, is not happy with the speed or quantity of weapons that are coming. and germany
3:15 pm
does have a lot of questions to answer about whether whether it could have done this better and faster did, responded terry schultz. they're reporting from nato headquarters in brussels. thank you to the governor, the lu hans origin eastern ukraine as again on the school. the urgent need for more military support. he says, russian forces are advancing and their assault on the key city of seville donates. he said a russian astride, it's a building sheltering civilians that killed at least 3 people in a neighboring lucy shots that the city and dong bus also taking a heavy toll in the distance. the sound of russian shelling for the people in the sea 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
