"mario ball" Discussed on Ladies Knight Chess
"That you can win an endgame with your opponent barely making any mistakes because you understand the position better. Yeah, it was fascinating seeing the two knights outplay the rook. I really admired, I mean, for listeners who didn't see the game, I'd say it's definitely worth watching a game recap of the decisive game in particular. I think Jen might be doing one on her channel, possibly by the time this comes out. But for a weaker player like me, her patience, so she won the d5 pawn, but she didn't take it right away. She made sure she waited until she could keep rooks on the board at the point that she took the pawn. And that moment to me was very instructive, as well as the rerouting of the knight in particular when she played the knight to b1 to get it to c3 to sit on that pawn. Those two moments really stood out and I found quite instructive. Beautifully said. I love the knight b1 maneuver. I mean, for those of you who didn't see the game, she rerouted her knight from b2 to b1 to c3 with a black pawn on c4 and b5. So this is actually the iconic example of a blockade knight, an outpost knight, because the knight does a beautiful job of preventing the c pawn from promoting while also aggressively attacking the pawn on b5. And actually I remember as a teenager, early 20s, reading a Dovaretsky book or perhaps getting a lesson from Gregory Kaidanov and somebody telling me that that position is winning for white. When you get the knight on c3 with the pawn on c4, when the black pawn's on c4 and you get the white knight on c3. So it was beautiful to see how she executed that. And I know it's a little bit silly to teach a six -year -old that, but I tried to explain it to Fabian. How did it go? I was like, why is that a good move? You know, hey, why not try? Sometimes these things stay imprinted in the brain. And I'm glad you mentioned the other moment where she played rook to c1 in order to protect her knight on c3 and then move her other knight to f4 to capture on d5 to win the pawn on d5 without trading rooks. That was a sensational scheme. And I think it's very logical. Sometimes in chess, it's easy to calculate so much that you forget your logic. But what is the logic here? Black had two rooks. White had one rook. It's better to have one of a type of piece because it can do some really important damage, whereas two of a piece can be redundant. So of course she wants to keep the one rook, right? And it's just like this pure logic that seems so obvious. It's like, oh, a beginner can understand that. But you know what? When you're at the board, you know, masters, international masters, grandmasters can easily lose sight of that kind of thing. And so to see Zhu Wenjun execute it so perfectly when she was playing for all the Mario balls, it's epic. Yeah. And of course the mistake that set up that whole sequence, the moving the pawn to e5 and weakening the black chain, that in itself was an instructive moment. And just from that point forward, perfect capitalization again by the world champion. And of course, a lot of people weighed in with congratulations. Rafael Latau, who did a great job doing the annotations and all of the write -ups for chess .com, concluded that it was a tense and difficult match that was played at a very high level by both players.

"Last year in Turin, Ukraine won the Eurovision song contest and it wasn't close. There were two reasons for this one was that Ukraine's entry stefania by kalush orchestra was a property Eurovision banger by any measure, a giddy hybrid of mournful Ukrainian folk and frantic modern hip hop performed in a mix of traditional costume, leather trousers and fluorescent bucket hats, adorned with solos played on the and sepulchre, both types of Ukrainian flute, and accompanied by a dancer dressed as a carpet, just outstanding work all round. The other reason for Ukraine's victory was overwhelming and entirely proper public sympathy. Kalush orchestra had been chosen to represent Ukraine in Turin two days before Russia launched, its absurd and brutal attack upon its neighbor in February last year. Stephania was quickly adopted as a patriotic anthem by Ukraine's defenders and Ukraine's people. The usual rule with Eurovision is that the winner accepts the honor and the burden of hosting the following year's contest, as Ukraine had on two previous occasions. This year for obvious reasons, this was not possible, and so last year's runner up, the United Kingdom, volunteered. Next Saturday, Ukraine's victory lap will take place in Liverpool. Last year's Eurovision Song Contest was yet another demonstration of the extraordinary political and diplomatic potent of this curious annual circus. For much the same reasons this year's Eurovision will be as well. What has being reigning Eurovision champions meant to Ukraine during this dreadful year? How is Liverpool preparing to acknowledge the rightful hosts? And could Ukraine become the first country since Ireland in 1994 to go back to back. This is the foreign desk. The video for the songs wasn't supposed to be about the war. It wasn't supposed to have all the element of the devastating consequences of the war that it has now. And every time we perform in that song, you can not ignore the fact that there's a war going on in Ukraine because you see it because you know it because you know that what this song represents now. The super lamp banana that symbol of Liverpool has been painting into yellow and blue colors, there's been Ukrainian food introduced across different restaurants and cafes that is Ukrainian cocktails, children are learning Ukrainian and schools and learning stuff about Ukraine. They just stepped above and beyond to make sure that Ukraine fails while represented here. You're listening to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Muller. Later in the show, we will hear from, among others, Ukraine's ambassador to the United Kingdom, the staff of monocles Eurovision desk, and this year's entry from Ukraine. But joining me first of all from last year's victorious Ukrainian Eurovision entry kalush orchestra, MC killerman. Kiliman, first of all, I wanted to ask you about this time one year ago or so. You had this extraordinary period in February 2022 with in just a few days in which kalush was selected to go to Eurovision and then you had to absorb the fact that Russia had attacked your country. Can you remember what that week felt like? I can easily say it was probably one of the craziest moments in our lives and yeah, it's weird how Ellen life sometimes is. On the one hand, you have to disastrous absolutely devastating news coming from every place of your beloved motherland with the unprovoked aggression from Russia. And on the other hand, you had one of the biggest or maybe the biggest achievements in your professional career, it was tough. Didn't you understand at that moment that for kalush going to Eurovision the stakes had been now raised, you were going to be representing your country to a huge global audience at a time of national peril. How daunting was that? I don't know if we understood that from the very beginning. I think the further it goes, the bigger it was getting to us. It changed a lot from just representing ourselves, our music, our brand, our vision, our mission, et cetera, et cetera. We was now supposed to represent the whole country and our struggle and our fight for our freedom and basically for our lives in our future. It was different. But when you were thinking about how you were going to perform, you know, once you got to Turin, did the fact of what was going on in Ukraine change how you went about it was the performance different to what it would have been had Russia not invaded. On a surface, probably not much like the way it looked. I mean like little choreography and singing, but when we were performing in some terrible things were happening in Ukrainian Mario pole, our leader Oleg was able to give a very short but extremely powerful message to the whole world that we need to save as our style and we need to say Mario ball right now. I'm happy we were able to make that message to tell people that besides this beautiful organized and with great intentions to unite people from different countries, song contest besides that there was some other things some bad things going on right in that same moment being armed below model and country of Ukraine. Kalush went to Turin as runaway favorites to win it, not just because of the quality of the song, but also because of the prevailing circumstances, but when you realized you had actually won this thing, are you able to explain what that felt like? I think everyone who ever won anything can relate to it. It's a great feeling. It's everything. It's happiness. It's joy. It's so much rewarding. You understand that dreams do come true. You was working for something, and now you're getting it, and it's everything. It's bigger than life. But in this particular instance, it's not just the benefits of winning you and kalush get, I guess, endowed with a remarkable responsibility by winning this thing you instantly become among the most famous Ukrainians on earth at a time when your country is fighting for its life. Did you realize that you had also become ambassadors for Ukraine? Again, maybe not like instantly, but at the end of the day, yes. And we understand that the responsibility is huge and I hope we're doing our job as good as we should be doing it. So what kind of things have you been doing in that role since you won Eurovision? So first of all, we've made an auction where we sold the revision property and our band leader elect think hat from the auction. And we raised a lot of money. I don't want to be mistaken, but I think it was something close to a $1 million or something like that. For both and we gave them money for Ukrainian army. Every single concert every single show, we've done after that. We was raising money. We was asking people to donate and be total. I think it's something close to $1.6 million that we were able to raise. And we passed that money to Ukrainian army and mostly

"But we also have increased globalization. There's increased tension zones in all the continents of the world. And so there's going to be a need to support more families and children from these locations. And actually to introduce families from other locations with these families to help each other get through the process of rebuilding. This is something that we as EFM and we get to see the different cultures and how they face their challenges. And one of the blessings that we bring to the foundation too. I'm guessing that you didn't start your journey as any of them as a trailing partner as an accompanying spouse thinking I'm going to start a foundation. And so in some ways, it probably came as a surprise. When you're talking to other EFM out there in the community and searching through their own journey, what kind of advice would you give to them? Before I left for Ukraine, my sister in law wrote a card on it and wrote me a card and a little quote on the bottom and it said, no one ever looks back and wishes they hadn't been so adventurous and courageous. And I think I've carried that with me since 2015 and I had no idea what that adventure was going to entail, but I slowly dove in to life abroad and I think that's something I would encourage from a personal standpoint or a career standpoint is just dive in when you get there. Dive into opportunities that post within the community, things that excite you, things that scare you. I mean, Ukraine was scary when I first got there, you know? And now look at what it's given to me. So I would say just embrace embrace the people, embrace the community, and the uncertainty, the vulnerability of all of that, and you just never know what will unfold and become. And so yeah, just dive in. How about you, Nathan? What advice would you give to new or transitioning diplomatic partners who are looking to redefine themselves from the person they were before they joined the foreign service? First, build your family. Wherever you are, you're not going to have the ability to have your blood found me there, but you will have your heart family there. And you're going to find people that are just like you and have similar passions. And you're going to find incredibly curious partners and friends that are really interested in challenging themselves with new environments and just to build that circle first. And that's where brynn and Kristen and irina, they were a part of that structure that bonded structure of trust and love. And then the second thing is just find something you're passionate about and just do it just like climbing. There's lots of mountains. We all have mountains. The mountains can be a metaphor for many different things. It can be the metaphor for something that you really afraid about, but just go and do it. Just dive in. You'll be so amazing. Where you'll discover not just about yourself, but about your ability to overcome anything. So probably one of the most important things that I want to make sure I do for you guys today is give people a way to get in touch and get involved. Either with mountain seat itself or through the donation portion of this year is around the world 5 K so can you give me website links, you know, how to get in touch with you guys, how to learn more about your stories or how to volunteer to be part of the crew, all the deeds. Support involvement is, you know, that's how we, that's how we, that fuels mountain seed and it comes in many forms and that's kind of the beauty of philanthropy. We have a beautiful website that we've designed and communicating our programs and projects and who we are. It's WWW dot mountain seed foundation dot org. And I encourage you to head over there and explore our page and find out more information about our camps, some impact stories, videos, and photos of the kids on the wall. It's an impressive, it's impressive thing that they've done. I get choked up very often when I see those photos of what they are, what they were capable of doing in the fears that they had to overcome very not so far after they had been in the basements in bucha and escaping Mario ball and so it's pretty powerful imagery. Of course, the website is offers an option to donate as well as we have an event page so you can check out our upcoming events April will be our around the world 5 K run by Leah Evans and we're really humbled by the support that we've received this past year. It has come in so many different forms volunteering, lemonade stands, school fundraisers, local events, people opening our Friends opening their businesses to have fundraisers in their communities and we couldn't do this work without them. And so we're really a shout out to everyone that is really come together this past year. And we really, we rely heavily on word of mouth connections and we're a grassroots volunteer based program and that's another way to help is spreading the word and keeping not only our efforts, but Ukraine at the forefront of people's minds and.

"I think as you get older as well, you realize that all of your friends that you previously would have asked for help have got commitments, children, or partners or whatever. And you feel like you don't want to be that awful burden. Obviously families different. You can ask your family for help. But do you think that being single has played a part in any of this or made it feel worse at the time? No, I think it's definitely there is no way on God's green and luscious earth that I could have had a partner when I've been going through it. I've been going through the last 5 years. I was not in a stable place. I didn't know who I was. So there is no way. As much as it felt like some times, you know, there were big moments where I'd cry and be like, I just want my person because I just need someone to take off the load for a while. Jesus take the wheel. Exactly that. It's like, I just need someone to do something for me. Like if I have been grafting and working my bum off and trying to get something done for girl versus cancer and it's 11 o'clock and I still haven't eaten and I haven't showered and blah blah blah. But now it's like I'm like, I never let myself get to that point. And I don't need anyone. Do you know what I mean? I don't need anyone to come in and cook me a dinner. That's a lovely thing for someone to do. But I've made sure that no matter what I'm downing tools at 8 o'clock because I've got to wait. Now I'm going to make sure I get a good night's sleep to have a good snow one. Because I can hear myself and I know that's what I need. And I refuse to let myself burn out again. So it's been in those moments of darkness. Yeah, I did. Want someone to come and help me. But actually, I'm like, I really, really value my solitude. And do I want to share this amazing life that I find myself living in all these amazing experiences I have of someone a 100% someone has to be the right one, not just anybody and I've created such a lovely life for myself that I'm so proud of. And I'm so happy and for the first time in my life, I'm so content. I've got an abundance of non romantic love I always say like I've got all of this like my amazing Friends, my family, I've got my health. I've got my career, like I've got my life, which I know how lucky we are to be here and how lucky I am to still be here. I am not going to compromise that for anyone who doesn't make me feel that I'm safe to do so. So therefore, no. So I'm very open to meeting people, but I just, yeah, my patience for mediocre at best men is nonexistent anymore. But what I am doing, have you heard of this app called field? I have not do tell. Okay, so field is an app. It's kind of like grindr for heterosexuals and people have all persuasions, but basically it's more of a hookup app. Than a dating app. So it's been good because I was like, I was like, I've been off the apps for a couple of years. Hate them. They just never make me feel good. And I've got a very fine art amount of energy to give out to the world. So I'm not spending it on people who have never met. Energetically, right? So, but then loads of my mates who are very much like me were started going on field. I have a great time. And I've been really great sex, making these really a great man. I was like, well, I need a bit of that 'cause I've had sex for a year, and that's ridiculous. And I just went right, I want it. And I am loving it because I'm not saying I'm sleeping with loads of men because I'm not, but a couple, spend all right, I'm not gonna say it's been wonderful, but it's been all right. But I'm speaking to a lot of men and for the first time in my life, because I'm not on that app looking for a relationship. I am just enjoying talking to so many different types of blogs, meeting up for drinks with different types of breakfast blogs. I would never have swiped on on one of the other apps. Because in my head, I'm like, I don't want to marry you. I'm not looking at him going, oh, he's Mario ball. I'm looking at him going to see fuckable. Yes, therefore, let's go for a drink. And it's just simplified things. And I feel this lightness in this freedom is excitement and this confidence that I've never had because I'm not, I don't care. It's amazing. Got it. I'm setting you up when we go for dinner after I'm putting you on. I know that app would not suit me. I honestly, I know myself too. Yeah, exactly. I always give it sorry I love to kick you then. Poof. Now you're about to go on that app. For me, it's like I feel good about it. But I've also been very clear on there that if lightning strikes and I meet someone I like like I'm open to something more. And I think if I realized that that was happening because I know the guys have met so far that's not the case at all. But if I met someone and that's like that's happening, I would be very clear. I'd be like, I don't think this is just going to be a shag for me. I think I could quite like you. If you're not open, let's just call it now. Yeah. Protect protect your heart. Yeah, exactly. Our time together is drawing to a close, which is bad and wrong. So I'm going to ask you because I do think this is, again, a bit like the risk question right at the top of the show. I think one of the questions that really tells a lot about guess is like, tell me about a time when you were wrong. And I love the fact that you were like, oh my God, so many times. I'm always wrong about things. It's like, you know, you can make mistakes about things where you can make a wrong decision or you can have a perception about a situation that you're convinced is right. And actually in hindsight, you were wrong. And you know, there's so many. You know, there's nothing that I can really sit back and go. Yeah, I was really wrong for doing that. There's a lot of them. But I think

It's like, you know, the double pommel thing at the Olympics where they go down and she's up top completely falling apart and just nails the end. Absolutely. That's all that matters. That's all that matters. Thank you for surviving that we care Moscow with us. And she will be with us next week with important data. It's Paul and I were looking at it. The key data point now, and Paul here, just as a cup of coffee, the ten year yield 3.95%. I'm watching that very, very carefully. Is this inflation idea sets in? Joining us now from Kyiv, someone who more than anyone at Bloomberg has covered this first year of war, Maria. Today. Maria, I'm looking here in our radio studio. It made in square. The tall statue, all of the history involved in the 7 times it made in squares been renamed. Since the Soviet revolution of Lenin in 1917 as well, and my number one question is, why haven't the Russians bombed? I mean, is it like Paris in World War II? It's something that even Vladimir Putin can't do. Look, I think there's a number of things. Your rage to point out that if you believe and again, that's a big if. If you believe the Russian narrative that they do see Ukraine as the birthplace of Russian culture, the two are inseparable and the tour connected like a brother and a sister. And by the way, one of the things that can be really stuck with me is I put this question into a Ukrainian lady that I met on the train from Poland. We were there for 17 hours, so you can imagine we had a lot of conversations. And I asked her this question, do you believe that you're almost like a little brother or sister to Russia? And she said, we're the brothers of no one. And I hate them. So that really gives you a sense immediately of just the impact that this had on the people. I think when it comes to keep and why it's still standing. Well, first of all, militarily, they could not take it. The way they planned. Remember, for the Russians was to get a hold of the airports and then from Belarus send soldiers. The issue here is a Ukraine and for very quick to blow up the two airports. I think now the reason why they're not able to do it from the air is because this is a fortress city in so many ways. The air defense will be 80% accurate, but 90% accurate. They have an issue with Iranian drones, they've been able to catch that and that's basically what it is. Okay, it's a one year anniversary. Everyone's focused lots of headlines, president Xi getting some visibility as well. What happens next week? For the Ukrainians, if they continue, the war continues. I think the plan that you looted from the Chinese, we already knew from the Munich security conference. Remember, I was there. And I put this question to the UK prime minister, when I spoke to him, I put this question to Pistorius, the German defense minister to the German foreign minister, do you believe in this plan? Do you have any faith in the Chinese and the question that came up all the time was why are they doing this now? China had a year to mediate and they haven't done that now for Ukrainians. They can't say it out loud because they want to have some type of relationship with China, they're not stupid. They obviously know that the Russians are on the phone where the Chinese so the Ukrainians want to get an opportunity to also get involved, but they say there's two immediate problems with this. One is that essentially would call for the dropping of sanctions, which they can not agree in the west. It's clear we're not due. And then secondly, this idea of a ceasefire when you talk to Ukrainians, they tell you a ceasefire is code for Russia takes 20% of our country. If you stop the fight now, the Russians will cement the positions they have already, and they will never give that back. So you're talking about the size of Portugal, essentially. When we talk about the Donbass, these are not villages. This is huge piece of land. And it goes all the way to Mario ball and it goes all the way to Crimea, or Ukrainians is ceasefire now they tell you it's 20% of our country gone in a year of war. Vladimir Putin, that's not a bad deal. So Maria, you're on the ground in Keith and Tom and I were just marveling at the resilience and the strength of the Ukrainian people and Ukrainian military one year into this war. Is there give us a sense of the resolve of the people on the ground? Look, it's immediate and it hits you right from the moment you get to helm. This is at the end of Poland to Ukraine for me, one of the moments that really stuck and it all made sense is when you're in this train which takes up a midnight and we'll get you to give a 3 p.m. precisely because the air space is shot and has been for a year is you're on this train and you share a bed with four other people and they just hit you. It's all women and at that point you ask them, okay, but what about your husband? Where are they? Why are you going back? And a lot of them see I'm going back to my husband to see them. It's been months that I don't see them. And then I asked, but what about just maybe putting an end to this? And they always say the same thing. They can't. The price is too high. And their husbands are fighting. And they want them to continue. And these are women that could lose their husbands or kids. And they will tell you this. And then when you come here to Kyiv, and of course, a foreigners were all concerned about with a B bombs overnight, whereas the shelter for them, this is just their lives. And the way that they adjust, it's absolutely incredible. Maria, these are horrific moments. And of course, the lightness of it that has kept us going through the year. Has been in this poll in the World Cup. It was trenchant I mean, Maria today in the World Cup was extraordinary. And, you know, this is a really emotional thing. And Marie is usually half exhausted. And then she woke up today to find out that Barcelona wouldn't move forward against Manu. Maria, is this like a curse? Why is men you beating a Barcelona that couldn't even score except a weak lane European penalty shot? Look, I have to say I have no idea that this information was happening because I'm totally confused by the time zone. The 17 hour train, it really is an experience when you get to hear you don't even know what day of the week it is. I'm

of someone who maybe it does make more sense because you have a heloc at four or 5% versus credit card interest rates of 16 or 17% Yeah as you said much more responsible now That's the critical point there Correct Thank you so much It's really great to have you on always but particularly here since you're visiting New York is it Alexis leones with her column You can read more on this and other

NES stack all trading lower right now stocks declined treasuries extended losses after fed chair Jay Powell signaled the U.S. Central Bank is ready to raise rates sharply if needed to curb inflation And with more on Powell's remarks here's Bloomberg's Vinny del giudice U.S. inflation is running at the fastest pace in 40 years Powell says the fed will take the necessary steps of getting inflation down even if that means lifting interest rates faster and enlarge your steps The fed started racing rates last week a quarter point move Pals spoke at an economic conference If any doubt should ice Bloomberg radio pass and P 500 on track to halt a four day rally while two year treasury yields pushed to two 8% after Powell said the fed will hike by more than 25 basis points at each meeting if

Charlie pellet This is balance of power coming from the Bloomberg interactive brokerage studio in New York I'm David Westin Will the war continues apace in Ukraine with shelling of the cities including particularly Mario poll where there was a demand overnight from the Russian forces for a surrender which the Ukrainians rejected for an update on what's going on in Ukraine and what may come next We welcome down David salvo He's deputy director of the alliance for securing democracy and senior fellow at the German Marshall fund for the United States So welcome David Thank you so much for being with us Give us your latest take on what is happening in Ukraine Well what happened in Mario ball is just another example of the Ukrainian people's amazing bravery I mean that they reject the Russian demands which isn't surprising But they are facing just constant bombardment And even under those conditions they refuse to surrender their city to Russian authorities So that's the latest on the military front In addition the Russian military continues to just use heavier weaponry and shell and discriminately civilian infrastructure which we've seen now for several days but I imagine it will the Russians will do this with increasing frequency as their military situation gets more desperate No I'm not going to qualify you to serve as a military expert but supposed use of the hypersonic missile doesn't make much difference really I mean it sounds really cool but does it really have a different level of destructiveness I mean it's quite destructive by the Russians have plenty of destructive weapons in their arsenal as they've been showing it They don't need to be sophisticated weapons These dumb cluster bombs that they're using are plenty destructive And that's because they can't target specific sites with real specificity like smart bombs can So they don't need to bring out the most advanced weapons in their arsenal to wreak havoc on Ukraine as we've been seeing Do you have a sense of the humanitarian side of this I mean how are people getting food and water much less medicine It's becoming increasingly dire especially in Mario pole I don't think here isn't quite the same Dire Straits for example as mariupol is but I mean Mario equals truly besieged I've read in red parallels to the siege of Leningrad even in World War II where people are just living under a constant bombardment It's extremely hard to get food and other humanitarian aid in and out of the city So it's really dire there And other parts of the country probably less so But still you have an exodus of millions of people now out of Ukraine to escape this conflict And that's a humanitarian tragedy on its own accord At the same time there are accounts I saw over the weekend I'm sure you did From some experts who think that the Russian forces are all but basically stymied that they're not moving forward very rapidly at all So what's the path forward here Well that's true And that's why I fear honestly that the Russian military will probably behave even more recklessly and dangerously in the coming days and weeks because they realize they've reached a stalemate where the Ukrainian resistance has bogged them down to an extent they didn't prepare for So I'm worried that Russia will just really try to pump all the country into submission Diplomatically obviously there has to be some sort of glimmer of hope we've heard president zelensky even hint that some improvement perhaps in the negotiations that have been going on between the Russian Ukrainian delegations I think we all have to just hope that that produces some sort of result but I think we all have to take those negotiations with some degree of skepticism because the Russia is hard to imagine Russia backing off maximalist demands and it's hard to it's hard to envision Ukraine conceding to all of them Well one of the questions I have is what settlement diplomatic settlement would be acceptable for Ukraine and for that matter for NATO the United States as well I mean we would love to see this stuff right now Nobody else die or get injured no more destruction happened At the same time if Russia president Putin really because this seems to be really directly at his doorstep if he stands to gain out of this what does that say to the rest of eastern and Central Europe That's truly the diplomatic quagmire that.

naughty oil and gas projects That's according to a person familiar with the plans who added that fracking could also be given a reprieve if druids can satisfy concerns about earthquakes It is part of the government's attempts to help wean the country off Russian energy The UK promised on Monday to phase out about 4 billion pounds of annual imports of Russian oil by the end of the year The plan isn't likely to be ready this week but it could come next week the person said in London Charles cape or Bloomberg daybreak Europe And uncertainty will dominate the European Central Bank's meeting later today officials will have to weigh surging inflation and other impacts from the war in Ukraine Bloomberg's Hannah George has the preview Faced with the twin challenges of inflation and war on its border the ECB may postpone its timetable setting out an end to trillions of Euros of asset purchases That would mark another abrupt shift in the Central Bank's stance Just last month president Christine Lagarde turned more hawkish in the face of inflation that's almost three times the 2% target The danger now is that the invasion and sanctions against Russia will curb Europe's rebound from the pandemic raising the prospect of stagflation flexibility is the watchword for the meeting officials may look for more room to delay the timing on when it will stop bomb buying and subsequently begin hiking rates again In London I'm Hannah George Bloomberg daybreak Europe Cable needs 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries I'm leann gerrans this is Bloomberg Anna Leanne thank you very much Let us pick up on some of the top stories that Leanne was talking about there with and continue our coverage of war in Ukraine joining us now Bloomberg senior reporter for international affairs Marc champion Mark good to speak to you So I mean the pictures that come out of Ukraine continue to worsen and worse and don't they I mean the pictures of the attack on the hospital and the victims of that attack on the front pages of all the newspapers here in the UK and no doubt around the world as well How do we characterize where we've got to in this conflict at the moment at the moment Mark I mean the advance of Russia how much it is managing to grind down the Ukrainian people Well it is I mean one word is just ugly And the in terms of just sort of advance and territory and so on the Russians have not made much progress in the last 5 days or so But that wasn't really too unexpected for military analysts because the Russians had had to change their whole battle plan after the first couple of debt solidify their logistics and supply lines to key which is their main target At the same time that there's no consolation for civilians in particular or the Ukrainian army that they're going to have to Level of bombing of cities has only increased the kind of weapons the UK is now saying that they are claiming to have confirmed that the Russians have used them with weapons which are really truly barbaric And you have incidents like the hospital and Mario But whatever has happened at the hospital Mario ball has been a humanitarian disaster for days now Yes indeed and we see the images of that On the subject of what can be achieved with diplomacy and talks we know that foreign ministers from Ukraine and Russia are going to be meeting in turkey today There's been talk in the 24 hours running up to this meeting about zelensky being open to compromise about advisers to zelensky saying they're open to neutrality How do we interpret all of those words Mark Well neutrality is basically saying that Ukraine would agree not to join NATO And this is actually something that the landscape said in the week before the war started He's saying it again now after once it all started becoming much more vocal and obtained that Ukraine needs to join NATO so that NATO could protect it But it seems clear that that's not going to happen There isn't going to be enough fly zone imposed So he seems to be literally said is just recognizing reality which is that nature doesn't want to bring Ukraine in especially now that it's in direct conflict So on the one hand that is real progress on as far as Russia is concerned that could help to meet one of its demands But on the other the other demands are to do with recognizing Russia's taking of different pieces of territory And that would be an impossible sale of the Ukraine Yes and not one inches that is the reply you get it if you ask about that it seems Meanwhile we have many countries in the region I'm thinking it particularly about Poland that want to do more but obviously with NATO agreement and NATO support And so with that in mind Poland wanted to supply some of its aging Russian military aircraft to Ukraine but they didn't want to do it directly They wanted to do it via the U.S. the U.S. has said no we won't act as a sort of courier on that on that front There are some voices in the U.S. calling for more to be done though Where are we on the extent to which the U.S. feels it can get involved here and not Well it's at the moment it's very clear The U.S. has drawn a line at the frontier that NATO and beyond that it will help the Ukrainians with defensive weapons like anti tank weapons and anti aircraft weapons that it can just move across the border by truck and train and so on But in terms of flying aircraft into.
