7:08 pm
legitimise this so—called republic and they want to get to the border of the republic with ukraine as they believe. i cannot imagine that this negotiations will start in the foreseeable future. russia should be first defeated in donbas, maybe not to the russian border, but the russian forces should feel the heat from the ukrainians to put them on to the negotiating table. to put mr putin on to the table. if to the negotiating table. to put mr putin on to the table. it it to the negotiating table. to put mr putin on to the table.— putin on to the table. if it doesn't aet putin on to the table. if it doesn't net to putin on to the table. if it doesn't get to putin _ putin on to the table. if it doesn't get to putin getting _ putin on to the table. if it doesn't get to putin getting around - putin on to the table. if it doesn't get to putin getting around the i get to putin getting around the table for a diplomatic discussion, what do you think will bring this military conflict to an end? i what do you think will bring this military conflict to an end? i think this conflict _ military conflict to an end? i think this conflict will— military conflict to an end? i think this conflict will come _ military conflict to an end? i think this conflict will come some - military conflict to an end? i think this conflict will come some kind l military conflict to an end? i think. this conflict will come some kind of exhaustion. russia doesn't have forces to fight with such an intensity like we have saw in this month for even half a year. i would
7:09 pm
expect that this conflict will somehow cease by autumn. by september or october. but not because they want to talk, but because they want to talk, but because they want to talk, but because they would be exhausted at the time and the military will not be ready to fight, because there is around 30 to 40% who doesn't want even military people who doesn't want to go to the fighting. and the morale of the russian forces is going down quite sharply. therefore i would say that it needs two or three months for some crucial changes in the mood of the russians. if we talk about the wider knock on effect this is having, the british foreign secretary said that moldova should be armed with nato military equipment. what is your response to that? ., ., 4' equipment. what is your response to that? ., ., ~ .. equipment. what is your response to that? , ., ., .,

7:11 pm
our political correspondent, iain watson, said opposition parties are concerned about what this means, when it comes to the independence of the report. they are suggesting that the mere fact that the prime minister on the person conducting the inquiry, sue gray, met about a month ago, and well before publication, could suggest perhaps this was not being done as transparently as it should. they asked for an explanation of why that meeting took place. what they are also asking for is that all the evidence of gatherings she has accumulated, which is more than 500 photographs, that all of that should be published in the name of transparency. but i can certainly say this afternoon that i have been told in no uncertain terms that not all of that evidence will be made public in due course. what sue gray will do is draw on some of that evidence for her report, for the explanation on the report of events that took place, but we will not see all of the evidence being put into the public domain. it has been interesting that both downing street and those close
7:12 pm
to sue gray disagree over the circumstances of the meeting in the first place. downing street were very keen to emphasise it was not done at the prime minister's behest, but they suggested that sue gray had initiated the meeting. those close to her said, no, this came from a suggestion by a number 10 official. downing street have now modified a position to make it very clear that the prime minister himself certainly hadn't called for this, but not denying that someone in number 10 suggested it was a good idea that the meeting took place. nonetheless, both sides do agree that he was not shown the content of the report, and still has not seen it. pharmacists are to be given more flexibility to deal with shortages of hormone replacement therapy medicines. they'll be given temporary permission to offer alternatives if they can't source the precise drug on the prescription. matt gravelling has the details. so i can get tired — i didn't used to get tired, i've always had quite a lot of energy. it can make you feel anxious

7:16 pm
in sexual health clinics were already under significant pressure and monkeypox was making it worse. it said some were having to see patients with symptoms in separate spaces to guard against spread. i am not concerned with people being identified with monkeypox, it generally has limited effect on patients that are shortlived but i am concerned we will be able to maintain access to people for sexual health services as well as preventing people having to isolate from services. in london where most cases had been found, clinics have stopped people walking in altogether. that could lead to fewer people being able to access sexual health services. some staff have already received a smallpox vaccine to help protect them against monkeypox. the uk is now stocking up on more doses. philippa roxby, bbc news. two people have been taken to hospital — after part of a stand collapsed
