"The BBC World Service coming to you live from London. I'm James Camara Sami. There was something unusual about president volodymyr zelensky's most recent nightly address to the nation. It wasn't in Ukrainian, but in his first language, Russian, and it was directed at Russians who have crossed the border to fight inside Ukraine. He urged them to surrender rather than risk being eventually tried for war crimes. Ukraine guarantees three things to every Russian soldier who surrenders. Firstly, you will be treated in a civilized manner in accordance with all conventions. Secondly, no one will know the circumstances of how you've surrendered. No one in Russia will know that you surrounded voluntarily. Thirdly, if you're afraid to return to Russia and do not want to be exchanged, we will find a way to arrange that too. That message was delivered as reports from Russia suggest that the authorities are now shutting the borders to those fighting age men who have been trying to leave the country and escape the call up that mass exodus are wholly predictable consequence of president Putin's announcement of a partial mobilization on Wednesday. We're going to begin this program with a rarely heard voice of dissent from Russia, a Russian serviceman who's made up his mind to leave the military doing that before hearing president zelensky's message. We contacted him through an organization called gulag gu dot net, which compiles examples of torture and corruption in Russia. It is, of course, one view and for his own safety, we're not revealing his name, location, or role in the military, one of my colleagues has voiced up his answers. I asked him why he decided to desert. For the past 15 years or so, the system has squeezed out people who have shown empathy and what honestly squeeze the moat by various means leaving only people who were able to adjust to see what they needed to see. Do what they needed to and not what was the truth. But was it connected specifically to what is happening in Ukraine to what's president Putin calls a special military operation. Of course, but the system hasn't been working for a year. It's been squeezing out honest people for 15 years and how did that affect you? If you try to serve honestly, you come across a wall of misunderstanding and various reprimands, various infringements from the side of the commanders because they only hear what they want to hear. Not the truth about the situation in the units when it comes to the security of soldiers or weapons. The only want to hear what they want to hear, not the truth. Given what you've just said, what did you expect when what president Putin calls this special military operation began? Any military person knows the deference between a special operation and a large scale invasion. And that's just combat on a large scale. Nobody expected such an outcome. People thought it would be some kind of military and caution at the border. And then it would roll back. So no one, no one thought it even those troops who were at the border. No one expected this full scale war to happen. I think it was the same numbers of troops at the border a year ago, probably some people expected an invasion. I can't speak for everyone, but surely nobody thought it would be in such a big scale. But the soldiers weren't motivated. It's very difficult to motivate soldiers without giving them any reason. Motivation plays a huge role in the army. And what are you hearing about how people on the front are feeling at the moment, how the people fighting in Ukraine are experiencing this war. At the start, soldiers were just not motivated. I mean, probably there were some people who were brainwashed, but the majority weren't and they weren't motivated, but a war normally works in such a way that a few weeks on a soldier began fighting, not because of his motivation, but to avenge his comrade who gets killed. The guy was in the trenches with yesterday, so things change very quickly. The first thing that's lost and what is truth, and again, the majority of soldiers were not motivated from the various start at all. And soldiers who had common sense and what opposing and arguing with the system were squeezed out by it, soldiers who were sympathetic to the subordinates, they were squeezed out. Commandos see soldiers like numbers, but not as human beings. On paper they will extend the period of the losses to a week instead of a day or so so that they are not sanctioned for excess of losses because people die from both sides do soldiers to Russian soldiers think that Russia can win this war That's the last thing a soldier at war thinks about has main goal is to survive and to save his body. It doesn't think about great victories or anything like that. This is war very simple and very complicated at the same time. You could be alive today and dead tomorrow of your life and your body is dead. Then what about the officers? What are they thinking about? That are still some soldiers that are not squeezed out by the system yet, thus sympathetic to the subordinates and trying to see if the lives, but some of them surrender to the system and follow the orders of their commanders. They report with their commandos want to hear, sometimes junior officers tell the truth, but senior officers report what commanders want to hear. In these circumstances, what do you think is going to happen then to the Russian army? This is a bloody meat grinder that grains lives from both sides. This is a tragedy for Ukraine, but a catastrophe for Russia. I think Ukraine will survive and be restored. I don't know about Russia. The majority of Russian soldiers who were at war had either dead or wounded, it's very difficult to see what comes next, especially after the

And later, comedians John early and Kate berlant are great friends who turn their inside jokes into comedy for everyone. It sounds really nice in the mouth too going, do you take hot caramel? Like you really have to wrap your mouth around the two words. John, you give real, you say Carl, you have real Jeff Daniels energy? Oh, I look like one too. Yes. All of that and more after these headlines. Hello, this is Danielle Yahoo. With the BBC News. President volodymyr zelensky of Ukraine says the war with Russia has entered an emotionally difficult stage after the city of several Donetsk fell to the Russian army. In his nightly address, mister zelensky said he didn't know how many more blows and losses there would be before victory appeared on the horizon. He said air defense systems held in storage in allied nations were needed more than ever. The Ukrainians were forced to retreat from several donets after weeks of fighting that has left the city in ruins. Ukraine's military intelligence chief is Kerala budanov. The actions taking place near several donuts represent a tactical regrouping of our forces. We're withdrawing to more advantageous positions in order to gain tactical superiority. Based on current conditions, it's no longer possible to hold the line in the ruins and open fields, so the defense forces have withdrawn to higher ground from where the defense operation will continue. President Putin has said Moscow will supply Belarus with iskander M missile systems. At a televised meeting with the Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko in Moscow, mister Putin said the short-range mobile systems would be handed over. We have made a decision within the next few months, we will hand over to Belarus, the iskander M tactical missile systems, which, as you know, can use both ballistic and cruise missiles, both in conventional and nuclear versions. The Russian leader also raised the possibility of modifying Belarusian military aircraft so that they could carry nuclear weapons. There has been further criticism from President Biden of Friday's Supreme Court decision to remove the constitutional right to abortion. The ruling was, he said, painful and devastating for many Americans. He said his administration would be closely monitoring how individual states implemented bands. In particular, whether they might violate a constitutional right by preventing people from crossing state borders to seek abortions. Further demonstrations have been taking place outside the Supreme Court, this woman was protesting against the court's decision. I think that guns right now are less regulated than women's bodies

of Ukraine called several Donetsk NPR's Nathan rott is in the city of nipro Ukraine and he joined us to talk about the situation Last night the Luhansk region's governor said on telegram that Russia is doing everything it can to cut the city off Ukraine has been using a series of three bridges to bring in troops arms and supplies across a river and into the city And the Luhansk oblast governor says Russia has now destroyed two of those and was aiming at the third Why is this city so important to the larger war Well it's the last major city in the Luhansk region that's at least still partially in Ukrainian control But I think more importantly is what the fight there in the broader don't boss region says about the larger state of the war Ukraine is now losing ground They're short on ammunition they're short on weapons They still don't have the number of anti air systems they've been asking for for months Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky drove that point about anti air systems home in his nightly briefing last night Did we get them no Do we need them yes he said there have already been 2606 of affirmative answers to this question He said in the form of various Russian cruise missiles that have hit Ukrainian cities And I should say that includes a missile strike over the weekend in western Ukraine that injured almost two dozen civilians Now the U.S. and Western Allies have provided Ukraine with arms What else do they need And actually maybe what is what do they need that's maybe not reaching them Well I mean obviously they'd like to get the anti air systems It's zelensky was just talking about And yeah I mean they have received heavy artillery anti tank weapons and certainly a lot of that has made it to the front line But the bigger issue we're hearing about is ammunition shortages Ukraine is becoming more and more dependent on western arms because they've gone through most of their Soviet era munitions That's something that's certainly going to come up later this week in Brussels when NATO defense ministers meet on Wednesday Because there is an immediate need At the beginning of this war Ukraine was very coy and revealing their losses on the battlefield Just a couple of weeks ago zelensky said they were losing 50 to a hundred soldiers a day Now they are saying it is double that And that does not include the wounded So there's a bigger question of whether both sides can continue to sustain those types of losses in the long term And are the Ukrainians worried that as this work runs on especially in the east at foreign interests and backing my Wayne Yeah I mean absolutely It's no secret here in Ukraine that the U.S. for example has other issues It's dealing with gun policy inflation election season That's why a lot of the reporting that I've been trying to do over the last couple of weeks here has been focused on Ukraine's economy This has already become a war of attrition and for Ukraine to keep its war effort going in the long term especially if support starts to drop off It's going to need a function and economy And that fact is not lost on people here NPR's Nathan rod and nipro Ukraine Nathan

that state And talked to firefighters fema workers and people who live nearby Reporter Alice fordham is with member station Ku and M and she joins us this morning from Santa Fe Good morning Alice Good morning Put these fires into perspective for us if you could How does this compare to other fire seasons in New Mexico Sure well wildland fires are part of life here but the state has never been recorded history scene anything like this fire season There are several all over the state I sometimes wake up and there's smoke in my house The president was briefed Saturday that more than 1% of the state has seen fire damage this year and that largest one that the president saw out of the window of Air Force One is 500 square miles It's still only about 70% contained Wow So just give us a sense of the damage that it's done So the landscape is changed for generations to come It's burned swathes of national forest and they use not just for recreation and conservation but for livelihoods So I've been spending time in small towns in northern New Mexico where people have been loggers They have grazed cattle on high ground for many many generations and their livelihoods their way of life has been changed forever by this fire And this is partly because of forests that are dry because of drought and hot arid weather due to climate change but there's also a huge amount of anger hit with the forest service because this fire started as two planned burns which got out of control So what did President Biden on this visit What did he see What did.

"Would like to be the second North Korea So from that perspective even if Putin would decide to continue to bomb civilian objects in Kyiv in another place then even if he would take Kyiv is that Ukrainian resistance would not stop He would not be able to subdue Ukraine So from that perspective I would dare to say that his offensive is already lost His war is lost So how therefore do you allow mister Putin to lose gracefully if indeed that is your argument that he is losing Well I think probably he has to apologize He has to withdraw his troops And probably he would have to also suggest some idea how he can let's say hey hey Ukrainians and also damage he was doing Sorry mister pabrik can you really see mister Putin doing any of those things Well I very much hope that mister Putin is not the only person in the country who at the end can decide the fate of future Russia and I would like to believe that there are still around his advisers his generals and many many other people And then and Russian public can they have to figure out how to get out of this but because it's very clear that we can not allow Ukraine as the victim country paying to save Putin's face This will not happen Without his public Latvia's defense minister will even as president Putin brandishes a nuclear sword at the world and continues the bombardment of Ukrainian towns and cities his clutching an olive branch behind his back but does he intend to wave that around as well talks had been scheduled to get underway today between delegations representing the Ukrainian and Russian governments at a location on the border between Russia and Belarus but have been delayed for what had been described as security and leg logistical issues and a video address president volodymyr zelensky said he was not confident the talks would have a positive outcome but he said Ukrainians needed to know their president had exhausted every avenue in trying to stop the war Frankly speaking as always I do not really believe this meeting will achieve anything But let them try so that citizens of Ukraine are in no doubt that I tried to stop the war that I stell a chance albeit a small one Which only is now from Kyiv as our chief international correspondent leads to set and these before we talk about those delayed talks How is it in the city tonight A city in waiting a city underground where the streets for yet another night are eerily quiet Everyone is underground the curfew ends as far as we know now And in fact the mayor has confirmed he will end it 8 in the morning Ukrainians go to bed at night in this city those who can get to sleep because many are spending one after another sleepless nights Wondering what they will wake up to in the morning which is why every morning for the past four days of the Russian invasion you have either volodymyr zelensky the president or vitaliy Klitschko the mayor saying we're here we're still standing and Russian forces are still not here The Russian forces getting closer Do you have any sense of that from the sounds of gunfire and mortar fire shell fire Every day since the Russians started their advance towards the capital and they've made president Putin made it clear that Kyiv was one of the targets The overthrowing of the government they explosions seen to get ever closer So today we had a regular intervals explosions at the edges of the city The Russian forces seemed to be about 20 miles away at one point about ten miles away but they don't seem to advance very far And they seem to be stalling because yesterday they were about the same distance but they do seem to get closer We heard again from the mayor of Vita Klitschko saying that there had been what are called reconnaissance teams of the Russians In other words groups coming in infiltrate the city to prepare for an invasion We're told that they were detected and neutralized no details given and you occasionally hear burst of gunfire in the city center never clear what's causing it But so far the Russian forces are on the edges raising the big question when will they come in and how far will they go And will any of that do you think be stopped by these talks for the moment delayed Does anybody got any expectation of them Well it makes you wonder if there's going to be talks in the morning if the Ukrainian delegation has already traveled to a location along the border If Lukashenko the Belarusian president has guaranteed that the Ukrainian delegation will be safe it makes you wonder well to create the best atmosphere for talks the best possibility for success is slim as that is you'd think that they wouldn't be assaulting Kyiv overnight but this is a war which has turned so many expectations on its head that you really have to suspend disbelief and just wait until it happens Lee's many thanks there was our chief international correspondent please do set speaking from the Ukrainian capital Keith This is WNYC.
