That the Russian armies that liberated us here are now waging war on a Ukraine. Why? Why? Some 1.1 million people were killed at the vast complex before it was liberated on this date in 1945. Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky is asking the west for more advanced weapons after another wave of Russian missile strikes targeted Kyiv and other cities across the country. Zelensky says thanks to western dominated air defense. I'm sorry, western donated air defense systems. Ukraine was able to shoot down most of the 55 missiles fired by Russia. Meantime, there are fears that the war may be entering a new and more deadly phase that national security correspondent JJ green sat down with the director of the defense intelligence agency for an exclusive interview about it. The fighting in bakh mood is very interesting. The general Scott barrier, director of the defense intelligence agency. The Russians have lost a lot of people in that battle. Ukraine has lost a lot of troops as well. But he says, I think the Ukrainians have done a superb job of defending with a smaller force to be able to do things in other places. So I think they're thinking about that logically. They're being smart about where when and how they use their weapons. And then while the Russians have made some gains in the vicinity of Bach mount in that area, they've taken tremendous losses to do that. In terms of the spring offensive, both sides have advantages and disadvantages. You know, we'll just have to wait and see how this turns out in the spring. JJ green. WTO news.

The crooks pretend to be from the prince George's county's sheriff's office and tell people they call. We've got an outstanding warrant and they have to pay up or they'll end up in jail. The sheriff's office says they got a number of reports of these types of calls. Here's what else to watch out for if someone asks you to wire money or send cash on a prepaid card. The sheriff's office says no law enforcement agency would ask that. If you get a suspicious call, don't give out personal information like your social security number, name or date of birth and report it to the sheriff's office.

Zelenskyy ramps up pressure on Western allies to send tanks

"Ukraine's president has spared his frustration about not obtaining enough tanks from some western nations to help his country defend itself from Russia in a breakfast video link meeting president volodymyr zelensky and his disappointments with certain countries such as Germany, Poland and the United States for hesitating and sending tanks. Zelensky complained that winning the war in Ukraine can not just be done with motivation and morale. The Ukrainian president was speaking with U.S. senator Chris Coons, Dutch prime minister Mark rutte, and former British prime minister Boris Johnson, the meeting was held on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, zelensky used an earlier speech to leaders that had gathered in this whisky resort of Davos to urge his allies not to hesitate. His supplies or western tanks must outpace another invasion of Russian tanks. He also argued that by helping Ukraine, they would also be protecting themselves. Restoration of security and peace in Ukraine must outpace Russia's attacks on security and peace in other countries. I am Karen Chammas

"Else is happening in today's news, the FBI claims to have hacked and disrupted a prolific ransomware gang called hive. Myanmar's military junta has announced a new law which bars political parties and candidates its so called links to unlawful individuals deemed to be of inflicted of so called terror acts, and the U.S. bank Morgan Stanley says it's fine employees who use message platforms such as WhatsApp for company business. Stay tuned to monocle 24 throughout the day for more on these stories, but first. There's been no shortage of positive supportive coverage of Ukraine, after all, it is subject to a brutal invasion by its neighbor, Russia. But events this past week in Ukraine's domestic policies have acted as a reminder that before Moscow's invasion, Ukraine was well known internationally as a country plagued by corruption. This weekend several senior Ukrainian officials stepped down as the president began an anti corruption campaign in the country. So how does and how should a journalist report a situation which is far from unambiguous? I'm delighted to say I'm joined by Victoria Vishnu, who's from the independent anti corruption commission in Kyiv a very good morning to you Victoria. Good morning to you as well, Emma. So just explain to us if you could the situation before Russia's invasion. I mean, how bad was corruption in Ukraine? Well, it depends, it depends on what we base our judgment here because you see for Ukrainian civil society for Ukrainians in general corruption was a big issue. However, it was also a result of not the actual problem itself, but also the media attention to corruption. So corruption reporting and corruption exaggeration at some point became a thing in itself and does despite the Ukraine actually having a problem with corruption sometimes Ukrainians themselves over exaggerated corruption issue here. And when we mean corruption, what exactly are we talking about here? Are we talking sort of low level corruption? Are we talking about issues which are endemic? Let's say in the country's political system and in its media structures. Well, for Ukrainians, usually when they say for ordinary Ukrainians, when they say when they speak of corruption, they usually mean this bribing thing. However, the issue of corruption of in Ukrainian society is with budget, of course. It's basically stealing the money from the budget from the people. And it's something that Ukrainians themselves are not fully aware of in terms of how it actually works. What are the red flags here? And this is, this is also a good subject for medium manipulations as well. You can frame something as corruption when it actually is not. And you can also frame something as not corruption when it's actually corruption. So our organization works mostly in defense and security sector in defense and security corruption. And in this particular sector, corruption has been more about money laundering if we speak about Yanukovych era. And stealing the budget if we speak of Ukraine post maidan post 2014. So the results, for example, of Yanukovych era corruption was that Ukrainian army was basically naked and barefoot. We've seen all of that. It was, it was a globally covered the state of Ukrainian army was back then. But right now, not literally right now, but since 2014, it's been more about promising something better while stealing money from defense industry in general and defense institutions as well. It's an interesting situation, isn't it? Because it was volodymyr zelensky who was elected to office on the basis that he would oust corruption. He would get rid of it. How successful was he before the invasion? Zelensky is pretty bad in terms of being a Machiavelli type of politician. This is something that we found out recently since the war broke out. So he does not really he can not really operate in this gray area of politics. But he's very good when things are clearly bad and clearly good. This is where he excels. So corruption issue in Ukraine is in the gray area. It's a gray zone. And you have to be very skilled to first of all operate in this toxic environment and second of all have means tools instruments to tackle it and zelensky was not really successful here. Although he himself is a very devoted anti corruption president, he himself also lacks skills, lacks knowledge on how to do it properly. And that's because of that, we've seen a lot of things happening within the first two years of his presidency. He could be described as a president who was not really into the details here as a president who at some point changed his cabinet administers to the people who actually know the system. And those people who know the system, they also operate quite well in corrupt environment and so they kept on with what they were doing before that. So he prior to this invasion as a president prior to this invasion was all about consciously or unconsciously giving platform for the old corrupters to successfully grow into. As a journalist, how difficult is it to try to report on any of this domestically given the fact that solidarity and unity and trust in leaders is absolutely paramount at the moment to maintain whatever spirit you can do in the face of an invasion. Well, the shortest answer can give you is that it depends.

Mitch McConnell: Ukraine Is the Top Priority for the U.S.

"I want to go back to Mitch McConnell, a lot of callers to this show accused him of being an absolute and complete globalist. That the globalism is an infection within the Republican Party, certainly the establishment side of the Republican Party. You don't see some of these upstart Republicans suffering from the dilemma of globalism. But, you know, this phrase uni party has sort of emerged recently where it's indistinguishable between a Republican and a Democrat on Capitol Hill. That in a way, a uni party has been formed behind volodymyr zelensky and Ukraine. Here was Mitch McConnell earlier than this week. Earlier in the week, expressing what he says is the top priority for the United States. Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians, that's the number one priority for the United States right now. According to most Republicans, that's sort of how we see the challenges confronting the country at the moment. Well, with all due respect, I don't think that that is the view of most Republicans. Most, at least for Republicans, not the Republicans, I know.

How do you say it's not just me because it's not interesting. It's not interesting to be very popular and have so power to not. It's not funny. It's acting more interesting. It's theater film. No, no. Interesting film acting is not interesting at all now and I'm not thinking about it. I don't know if it's will be in my life. I don't know. I don't really know. Interesting is to help and is to join, even that leaders who never who never helped Ukraine and that is interesting. It's not the funny story. That is tragedy. Again, I repeat that in the war. But it's interesting to explain the world what's going on in the world. Not only in their places or in their warm houses. So the world is much bigger. What do we want to do after the war?

I am sorry to ask you that. What do you want to say to people at Christmas? And you have a chance now to talk to 5 million people. Your book has some English analysis should be under every Christmas tree. What's your wish and what do you want to wish people? People. What do you want to say? Save your love. Save your love for your life. Your neighbors, your relatives, your pure parents, your children. Your nation, that is what we love. Some people love their hobby, their work, their job, save it, because I think life consists of so so lovely, pretty things. And I think that the meaning, the main meaning of the life, not to change life, and other people, I don't know how to say it in English, sorry. To help and bring colors to someone's life. Not to worsen not to be a burden for someone. But every person has a mission. It seems to me that the greatest mission in the world is not to disturb others. I think so. But to help. After ten months of the war, you have love and not hate. I have love. And I have hate I told you to whom I have I have so big heart so you see how much hate I have with somebody. Certain one where you could say Ukraine has already worn. Ukraine already achieved probably the most important thing it has become a true nation. People have come together as they never done before. They showed more courage and more agency. This country can not be subjugated anymore. It's not about military. It's about spirits. It's about the power intellect and consciousness. And militarily, of course, in some ways Ukraine has turned the corner. It is liberated territory. It fended off Russian attacks around Kyiv has driven Russians out. But neither zelensky nor his generals are in the least triumphant. They know this is going to be very hard winter. They know this is going to be very long war. Because Vladimir Putin is not going to stop because it's not about territory. It's about the existence of Ukraine. An our future, the future of liberal democracies in Europe. All the things that we halt dear in terms of values are now being fought over on the eastern front of Ukraine. So this is a train, track number one, train one, one, one, key, to putting more Kyiv to victory, arrival 2022, might be a little late a few weeks, months. Let's hope it's not years that's late, that will be the most welcome train, I think, in Ukraine, from Kyiv to victory.

"Think this is where land and identity actually come now together. All they want is their land back, because as zelensky said, it's not Ukraine that attacked Russia and fighting with Russia's Russia that attacked Ukraine and fighting with Ukrainians on their own territory. How is it now? Say okay? Let's stop and wait take Dunbar with south of our country or part of it and Crimea remains with them. Why? Because it is time to do so and you should not be able to. No one will forgive it. But how many lives are you going to lose? We are not losing people. You have to understand Russia came and they are killing our people. Putin takes people from both sides. He takes our people and sends his citizens to get killed. How many is he ready for? If he now withdraws to a 1991 borders, when the possible path of diplomats will begin. That is who can really return the war from a military path to a diplomatic one. Only he can do it. Do you think the Ukrainian people now understand that do you understand that in order that in a way your call it mission, your job, whatever, is to finish fascism. That it's not just a bad territory. It is about fascism. And that unless it's defeated militarily, it will come back. That's what I was asking before, and how do you balance it with people, Ukrainians who I talk to and saying, we will liberate our territory. They can go and live wherever they want to live. The Russians. But we want our children back because life for Ukrainians is the most important thing. Where is that balance between the idea that you have to defeat this dark force on the one hand? On the other people want their children back in Ukraine. How do you balance those big geopolitical ideas and strategy with the fact that people want their children? Because I don't need to balance with Russians. I don't know for Ukrainians. I mean, how do you balance that? We don't for today. We don't need it because not more than 90 5 or 96% of people want to occupy it. All their after, after a Russian did it. I think the most big mistake or the big mistake was on two zero 14. But the biggest mistake. The tragedy was on 20 4th of February. Because that is the point when nobody wants to come back to any compromises, the mistake of all the country of all the people because they gave him possibility because he knows his audience. He knew that if society of Russia will not support him, he will not go. He prepared a long, long time, he prepared audience prepared Russians for these full scale innovation. Is he brave? No, because he afraid of all his society. One could go as far as to call this war a war of words. Because propaganda machine is very powerful in the Russian side. In fact, this war could not have been waged by Putin without his control over Russian television and the media. Zelensky has a very different mode of delivering his message and a very different way of speaking to his people. Putin of course speaks to them from the screen of the television, telling them what to do, telling them to go to war completely wrapping them in their propaganda. It is effective. It's effective for a part of Russian society, particularly the older part of the demographic. People over age of 55, 60, who succumb and watch television. Vladimir zelensky used a very different method. He understands that he needs to talk to people as equals. He is people's men he's everyone's man, and this has been incredibly effective. And is actually managed to beat Russia at its propaganda a lot of the time. I think we hear his voice partly or largely because he's actually telling the truth, unlike Putin, whose whole war is based on lie and falsehood. You've given thousands speeches. You've got given the power of the speeches. And each speech has been, you know, people listen, you got pay attention, and you are speaking not just to the governments, you are speaking to nations. But after ten months of the war, it must be quite hard to find new words. How do you find new words? I'm not fine. How do you keep it slo-mo? You want to convey the meaning. Unfortunately, we are a form of expression of emotions, our thoughts. I say, unfortunately, because the real world prompts these words, you can not invent such stories. They seized a nuclear power plant. His logic is simply. I don't want it to work. I don't want anybody to have light. It is a terrorist logic.

His greatest resonate because he speaks with enough moral clarity, empathy, and force that it left few people indifferent at it also drew them in. Just like a good actor draws the audience into his performance. How important was your acting experience? I mean, actually, the first time we met before the war, you're not actually talked about theater. I don't know whether you're a fair amount. How important was your acting experience, film experience in everything that you've done and you've addressed? I think all these experience is important. Of course, it's big practice what I had in previous my life. Yes, all of us have some lives. So I mean that, of course, practice, of course, not to be afraid because you know there are so many people there in the live their brave brave people, but when they see camera, something happens. Yes, it's okay. I think it's situation just for people. But really, what about acting? My attitude always was when I produced some movies, so acting without acting. That is my attitude to this great profession. Yes, acting without because people have not to watch. Not to watch movie to believe. That you are now a part of this real story. Real Commodore tragic moment does matter to believe. How to believe, not to act. That's it. One of the most striking things you've said when we're first exposed during the war. And the one that stuck in my mind and which in fact shaped our description of how Ukraine has been doing is that what mattered to you is human life. The saving lives is the most important I ask you at the time what's victory and your answer was saving as many lives as possible because territory land is good, but it's just territory without people. It means nothing. Then on the 24th of August, you gave a speech in the Independence Day and saying, Ukraine, we're no longer interested just in peace we're now interested in a victory. But now it's them, mister Lesnar, Ukraine, you know. Slav Oakley. How's your sense of victory? Changed. And what is it now? But you just not going to honestly speaking. My attitude towards people has no change to. On the contrary, I believe that this is one of the real treasures of Ukraine. And the fact that people, these United states, it shows that these people have the same truth, meaning, and it isn't their family in their land, in their flag. They can't live without, you know, without this worry warm important things, family children, about land, about their houses. So all of this is part of the people. We're important. Even in which it is minority. And people don't want to change that. And they don't want to change their identity. And where defending it, therefore a victory is when a person is alive. And he or she has retained always. You can tell them, gleason, very something with your anthem, your flag, or your language. You can choose what you want. It's your right. Choose what you want, but don't choose for me. But you have very hard decision to make now. As the winter comes as the war slows down, as your allies start wondering what, where's it all going? Where does it end? Where is victory, et cetera and you are now in the position of making a strategic choice of either carrying on and you've been talking about the borders of 1991, or saving lives, and saying no, actually, this will be just the prices will be just too high. Depending on what you decide now, will determine the outcome of this war. The cancer. Nobody knows for sure what will happen tomorrow. Nobody knows what to expect from Russia under this military political leadership. In this war, it is philosophically important to go to our borders from 1991. It is important for a world because it is the result of a fact that no matter who is where tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, amongst remember what will happen people will unite the whole world will unite against one aggression. No matter how big it is. It will lose. I think this is a very important message for Vladimir zelensky. He says he can't just give up on the territory, including the one that Russia grabbed before 2014, which includes, of course, Crimea, and eastern Dunbar. He insists that Ukraine has to go all the way back to the borders of 1981 when it became an independent state. And it's not just obsession with land for him. I think it's to do with what constitutes today Ukrainian identity and how much that identity is now tied to land. He also knows that if Russia is allowed to freeze this conflict, as it did in 2014 after an ex in Crimean taking Dunbar's, he will only be the matter of time before it gathers more resources, more strength and re attacks again. There is no line that can be drawn now, which will make the rest of Ukraine secure. And to him bringing peace and ending the war is key. And just as I asked him in March, what constitutes victory. I think he is just as clear now. It's retaining what Ukraine is. It's retaining its way of life, which are now also means getting land back.

"6 o'clock. I want sometimes. I read not too much, not have much time. This is not light reading. This obviously heavy books both in weight and in substance. The fact that zelensky actually completely retains also his lightness of touch and his sense of humor. I think also came through in our conversation. So you are welcome. Thank you. It's been 8 months since I saw you last. And a lot has changed. How are you feeling? And it's not just the polite question. Why? Sometimes we need just polite questions. Really? The president switches frequently during our chat between English and Ukrainian. And we've had someone translate and voice his Ukrainian words into English. But not mine. I don't suffer from split personality. So I feel normal. There are some challenges. It is very painful. Really painful for people. Everyday people have to deal with challenges, like energy, and where many things. When I ask you how you are. We're sitting in a different office now. We're not in the situation room. It's worldly. And you are not wearing your hockey, famous architecture that's become the icon. You're wearing a flea saying, I'm Ukrainian. This looks much more peaceful. What does that tell us? Is like getting more normal. I have my green. It was a little cold for me. Now it's water much harder for now, but it was really very cold from the morning. So that means that you want to hear that it's more peaceful today in Ukraine. No. We've got differentiation of the war. Maybe if I can use such work in south somewhere in azov region, occupied a territory in some villages in the perugia, nothing. In occupied electricity water, nothing. And in here so on the situation is where people so happy that we came that we occupied it already, but on the other bank of the dnieper nipro. So they use artillery to hear song to that people whom yesterday yesterday they said that one people. And in Kyiv, not so dangerous, but they began to use rockets. Yes, after occupation, began drones Iranian exactly. So I can't compare the situation which was and which we have. So we moved to ten months into the war. You've written a book, a message from Ukraine, volodymyr zelensky, the proceeds from this book, go to united 24, which is a Ukrainian government foundation which collects money from volunteers around the world. It's your book of speeches. You wrote an introduction. I was honored to write a preface. When was the first time you realized that what you're saying really mattered? Words are really, really important to live out. I think it was before we were. And even before the presidency, I always believe that I won't clearly is available. Awards is a web on what can be used, preventatively. And on the way to a big world, you can always try to resolve the conflict in a direct. And that is why it's very important. But we must understand what in our case. And in my life, as a president, what's played a big positive role. Not even big. But positive from the point of bringing people together. From different parts, and I think one of such moments was when I appealed to our people in order to get through this information, spreading on the first day. But we are not there that we run away. It was not a speech. It was my short address, but we are here. What we are not going anywhere, and we will be here until then. We also believe this moment had a special effect on united people on their faces. Because in war, every person needs some kind of a magnet. A magnet around whom you can unite to be strong. It seems to me that it was as such a moment a moment. When it has deluge. I think this was the most important moment of the war. In some ways, everything rested on that moment. I remember that both of those videos, the first one, on the evening of the 24th, when you came out with a earmark with everybody and saying, you had to lead. President tooth. And then again in the morning, after you've survived that then, by that time, we already knew you've also spoken to the Americans. You've said this iconic phrase, I need ammo, not a ride. You came out with a selfie camera. You stood up. I'm sorry for interrupting. I didn't remember at what time I had phone call with President Biden. And then we checked it and saw that the President Biden was the first really he was the first president with whom I had phone call. And then you came out with a camera. I mean, how conscious were you, what you were doing. In a sense that, you know, there are cameras now standing here. You could have had anything, but you came out with a phone and you held it yourself. And it was a social media kind of short 32 seconds. Everything wrestled in that moment. Why? How did you decide to do that? My feeling. That's it. Into each should. What we need now. It's like a parent when something happens to a child away from a parent. But for parents, for some reason, wake up and feel that something has happened. You don't know what. But it is not right. You have to call straight away and find the old child and do it. That's why it was the same feeling that we need now. We need something now because this material must be responded to. And we will respond. And we need to respond with everywhere. Something like that. Zelensky's ability to draw in his personal audience is incredible. He's done it in Ukraine, and since the start of the war he's been doing it across the world. In March, he became the first foreign leader to address Britain's House of Commons. Mister ladies and gentlemen. All the people of the United Kingdom. It was repeated in the U.S. Congress. Members of Congress, I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the president of Ukraine, Vladimir zelensky. And to more than 20 other parliaments around the world, president guru. And he's even spoken at festivals and award ceremonies, including Cannes, film festival. And his speeches,

"volodymyr zelensky" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence

"Hello and welcome to the intelligence from The Economist. It's been ten months since Russia invaded Ukraine on the 24th of February, Russian forces crossed the borders around the country and sent tanks, troops, helicopters, and planes to subdue a country. They aimed to reach the capital Kyiv and days stormed the government and take out Ukraine's president volodymyr zelensky. Yet they never reached him, and he never fled. Instead, 38 hours into the invasion, he took a camera, walked into a famous central street in Kyiv and held its selfie style, recording the first address to his people and the world after the invasion. We are here, he said, we defend our independence. This is how it will be from now on. Ten months of grinding more later, Russia still occupies parts of the country, and the cold weather has slowed both armies, yet mister zelensky has not stopped putting out his message that Ukraine remains Ukrainian. In hundreds of speeches and addresses since, that message has only become clearer. Greetings, Glastonbury, the most terrible has happened. Russia has stolen our peace. Russia started the war against freedom as it is. This is only the beginning for Russia on the Ukrainian land. And yesterday, perhaps among the most significant of them, mister zelensky addressed America's Congress in person. It's the first time as far as we know that he's left his country since the war began. The battle is not only for life, freedom, and security of Ukrainians, or any other nation, which Russia attempts to conquer. This struggle will define in what world our children and grandchildren will live and then they are children and grandchildren. It will define whether it will be a democracy of Ukrainians and for Americans for all. Back in March, our editor in chief zenith and beto's traveled with our Russia editor are called the ostrovsky to Kyiv, where they were the first western journalists to meet with president zelensky after the outbreak of war. You know, it's not about unbreakable or not. It's like, I have to do this way. Now the conflict has shifted. Victory for Ukraine feels closer, and for today's special episode of the intelligence, our cadi was invited back again. I remember very well last time and I visited Kyiv. It was back at the end of March, Russian troops were still around the city. The city had almost kind of like a smog of fear hanging over it. There was anxiety and the city was empty, of course. Most people were gone at that point, evacuated, to other parts of Ukraine. Curfew was at 7 o'clock. This time I traveled to Kyiv, central station, from water, the atmosphere was very different. The city has got used to the war, it's full of people, the city is bustling the only thing, which is very noticeable, obviously, is that most of the city is dark from the moment the sunsets because of the Russian attacks on electricity infrastructure. One place that nava goes dark, one place that remains always light, warm, full of people, and completely calm is the cave railway station. So I'm standing in the middle of Kyiv railway station and there is a departure board just by the very grand Grande, all Soviet staircase and it's a very interesting departure board. It lists the roots, which are not yet in operation at the moment. And they're marked in green. For example, there is a train from Kyiv to sin that's the capital of Crimea, there is a train from Kyiv to Luhansk, this, of course, national. This is from Kyiv to the places which are under Russian occupation. There is one line, however, which is now in white. It's on track to train one O two, and it says Kyiv to her son, departure 1638. And my understanding and this train is actually now running. Ukraine has just liberated kirsan a very important city in the south. Its gained quite a lot of land back. Since March since I last saw president zelensky, Russians are no longer around Kyiv, a lot of the territory has been liberated. There is still a lot more to do. The military are by no means triumphant, but there is a sense of confidence that this country can actually do it. And this difference also showed in the circumstances of which I met president zelensky this time. He and zelensky now greeted me in his proper office. It's a very ornate, quite lavish office, a country of 40 million people with long history. And he looked different as well. Some of the adrenaline, I think, in the sense of emergency, which was clearly there when Matthew and march has gone. On the one hand, he is much more tired, you can tell how much this war has taken out of him. His aged, he is really quite exhausted. But in good spirit, I greeted him in Ukrainian the best Ukraine and I could master and I was very flattered. He complimented me on my very limited Ukrainian. Deku, yeah, stereo. And one thing as we sat down at his desk, he was completely at ease as he always is. I have noticed that on kiss on the side of his desk, there was a stack of books. I can see a book on your desk and it's hitman Stalin. Yeah. A lot on cities. Is that what you're reading at the moment? Irene. Can I have you? You have, you have George Orwell. And you have the volume by Mikhail rusevski. That is the story of Kubernetes. And you have a book. And this is I'm here. Almost half of the book I read Stalin Hitler in a lot of cities. I'm going to read it. You have to. I'm going to the second one. I didn't start yet. I love to read three or four books parallel. You find time to read books. That's amazing. Sometimes. Yeah. When I wake up in the morning early in the morning, I'll also have sunglasses. And early in the morning, it's

"Ukraine's president is thanking every American supporting his nation's fight against Russia as he aims to sustain the U.S. and allied support. Addressing a joint meeting of Congress, volodymyr zelensky said he appreciates all the aids so far. Is it enough, honestly, I'm not really. Drawing laughter from the House chamber on his first known trip outside Ukraine in the ten months since Russia's invasion, zelensky first visited The White House, where President Biden called it an otter to stand by him and pledged ongoing support. As long as it takes. On Capitol Hill. Your money is not charity. Zelensky decided instead it's an investment in global security that it's only a matter of time before a U.S. allies are targeted. In the meantime, a defiance of zelensky drew loud cheers and saying against all odds, his nation is holding its lines against a far bigger military. And we'll never surrender.

"Russians had retreated to the left bank of the dnieper river, about a mile away. The blasts continued to sound, but zelensky did not seem bothered by them. He declined as usual to wear a helmet or bulletproof vest. At the edge of the square, the soldiers had installed a Starlink Internet terminal. Plugging its satellite antenna into a diesel generator. The president took out his phone and asked for the Wi-Fi password. Most of the people around him were armed with assault rifles, but this was his weapon. A late model iPhone that zelensky had used to wage the biggest to land war of the information age. His skill at addressing the world through that phone in his nightly speeches on social media in his endless calls with foreign leaders and supporters has been as critical as the number of tanks in his army. Zelensky has dialed into the World Economic Forum in Davos, and the NATO summit in Madrid. He has granted interviews to talk show hosts and journalists that held live chats with students at Stanford, Harvard, and Yale. He has leveraged the fame of entertainment superstars to amplify his cause for international support. Jessica Chastain and Ben Stiller visited his fortified compound, Liev Schreiber, agreed to become an ambassador for Ukraine's official fundraising platform. Sean Penn brought an Oscar statuette to Kyiv and left it with zelensky. Once the president allowed a team of technicians to create a 3D hologram of his likeness, which was later projected at a conference around Europe. Our principal is simple, says Andre yarmouk, the president's chief of staff. If we fall out of focus, we're in danger. The attention of the world serves as a shield. The effect has been a kind of virtual omnipresence that has at times grown tedious for some of zelensky's own citizens, we're always looking for new formats, says kurila timoshenko, the presidential adviser who oversees the TV marathon, beaming zelensky's message and to Ukrainian homes.

"That night, the presidential train took about 9 hours to travel the length of Ukraine from north to south. Most of the compartments were taken up by the security men who rested their assault rifles on the luggage racks, kicked up their feet, and watched movies on their phones. They had never seen reporters on this train before, and their only request was that we not take any photos of zelensky's private carriage. If the Russians find it, that's a bullseye, one of them explained. Since the start of the invasion, air traffic over Ukraine has been limited to fighter jets, drones, bombers, and cruise missiles. The train has become the president's primary means of long distance travel. From the outside, his carriage is indistinguishable from a regular passenger car. Inside, my expectations of a high-tech command center on wheels, or at least a well stocked bar, did not pan out. There was no Internet on board in the amenities were modest, a first class ticket on Amtrak would offer more space to stretch out. But zelensky says he enjoys the train. It gives him time to read and the experience reminds him of his childhood. When he was growing up, his father worked as a systems manager in the copper mines of Mongolia and the trips to visit him would take 8 days on the railroad from their hometown of creevy in central Ukraine, passing all the way through Russia and Siberia. He remembers the journey's fondly. The vast expanse of the Soviet empire rolling by, the classes of tea served in metal cup holders, embossed with the hammer and sickle. It is among the many ironies of his predicament that zelensky was raised in the empire whose revival he is now fighting to stop. For most of his life, he felt nostalgia for the culture and history Ukraine shared with Russia. There were these amazing Soviet comedies, zelensky told me. Among his heroes growing up, were filmmakers like Leonid gaidai, whose works were heavily censored, but still charming and often hilarious. One depicted Ivan the terrible, swapping lives with the superintendent at a Soviet apartment building.

He was on the list. Liz Cheney was on the list. Ron DeSantis was a potential person that they were considering. But I really think they got this wrong because as much as zelensky has stood up for Ukraine and done what he's needed to do to keep his people and country whole and it looks like he's having some success there. It pales in comparison to the accomplishments that even now are being accomplished by Elon Musk. And I just, I can not fathom that zelensky beats Musk in a head to head. I mean, listen, contest.

Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky is accusing Russia of trying to create a global sense of fatigue about the invasion. That includes restricting the flow of gas to drive energy prices higher. European Commission president Ursula Vandelay and says the European Union is working on a plan to address spiking energy costs. Well, the EU could also soon offer Ukrainian forces new sniper D mining or officer training as part of a new mission. Bloomberg's Nathan Hager has more from Washington. EU foreign minister josep Burrell plans to propose the new training in a meeting with EU defense ministers in Prague starting tonight, a document obtained by Bloomberg shows Ukraine has identified specific training needs, including for medical demining and sniper missions. Ukrainian soldiers have already been offered various training efforts, the UK has been joined by Canada and Sweden in putting thousands of Ukrainian forces through basic training, and the Netherlands in Germany have been putting the Ukrainians through their paces on self propelled howitzers. In Washington, I'm Nathan Hager, Bloomberg radio. A team from the International Atomic Energy Agency is heading for the zapper Asia nuclear power plant in southeastern Ukraine. The inspectors will try to assess damage to the plant from nearby attacks that continue.

WTO news time two ten, two top Ukrainian officials have been suspended by president volodymyr zelensky for treason and collaborating with Russia. One of them is the country's lead prosecutor and the other is Ukraine's head of state security. Zelensky's moves suggests the fight against Russia isn't just happening on the ground, but in the government itself. WTO national security correspondent JJ green joins us live to explain the inside threats JJ, who were they and why exactly where they fired. Prosecutor general Iran. And Ivan, the leader of the security service of Ukraine. The reason the large number of treason investigations open into employees and law enforcement agencies, including the prosecutor general's office and the domestic security agencies, which these people run. There are more than 600 open investigations and the people working in those agencies, including more than 60 people who have stayed in Russian controlled parts of Ukraine after this conflict broke out in February and according to Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky, these people are helping Russia. That's why these people were suspended. It's most likely they will be fired, but it's a grave problem they have. JJ, how big of a problem is Russian collaboration with a Ukraine's government to Russia? Well, Ukraine's intelligence agency has more than 27,000 people in it. It's the largest agency of its kind in Europe. It's also the successor to the KGB once the USSR dissolved. And Ukrainian intelligence for the last 15 or 20 years, even further back has had serious problems with infiltration from Russian intelligence. And has every country in Europe and the U.S. have that same concern. Russia has essentially tried to get its hooks into countries all over the place, but Ukraine is right next door. It was a former USSR satellite, a lot easier to do. And let's not forget 8 years ago, Ukraine's president Viktor Yanukovych fled the country, went to Russia, taking tens of millions of dollars with him. Clearly, they were questions about the intelligence and government under him, so it stands to reason. They're still maybe some concerns today. So how does all of this impact the war and who eventually wins it? You said it at the top of this hit, Sean. This is a part of what Russia does, and this is a part of what Russia is hoping to do in terms of looking at the long game. They want people inside the corridors of power in other countries around the world. And Russia is like a big octopus. They've got tentacles everywhere in these tentacles run deep in some places. They're on the surface and other places. But the bottom line here is Russia is hoping to have enough people in positions in places around the world to help influence the governments, the intelligence agencies and the people in these countries so that Russia can essentially push forward with its own interest and its own objectives and goals and that includes in a case like this, whether we're at war with the country, they can have an advantage. Here in the U.S., illegals are very, very popular in terms of the term that Russia and others here in the U.S. used for people that Russia dispatches to countries to try to essentially overthrow them without them knowing about it. These are sleepers. People who essentially sit quietly and wait until they're asked to come into action and Russia has this whole thing, I guess in their minds figured out as far as Ukraine goes, if they can wait long enough, get enough people in positions, then they can win this war. And so that's what they hope will be the essentially the end result of having this influence in Ukraine's intelligence and government systems. All righty, JJ, thanks so much. JJ green, it's two 14.
