but shortly before the scheduled touchdown the space and to in bangalore lost contact with the land and now mission control is trying to figure out whether the spacecraft crashed or landed while no one was watching. the devastation at india's space agency as the scientists news contact to the chandrayaan 2 only seconds before its landing. the spacecraft was meant to become the 1st ever to touch down on the unexplored south pole of the moon indian prime minister in the random o.t. came to see the landing from the control room later the phone come solitary worse as he addressed the nation. on earth few of us that are in doubt of the nation by the way. the better way. it is sought out or to be inserted into d.c. the thought of scientists who hired and bar. on one of the morse ambitious
mission of our space program victim very low voice but we really need to cover more ground on. the landing of the spacecraft was also broadcast live on television across the country tensions were running high ahead of the event the chandrayaan 2 was successfully launched in july after a previous attempt was called off due to technical problems. chandrayaan which means moon craft in ancient sanskrit spent the last few weeks travelling to us the south side of the moon. on monday the landing robot vic separated from the craft ahead of its planned touchdown it was supposed to measure the surface and locate water deposits india would have been only the full of
country in the world to achieve a controlled soft landing its previous mission in 2008 and that with the space craft probe intentionally crashing into the moon. for now india's invasions to become a global space superpower appear to have suffered a setback but scientists hope to get the communication to the spacecraft back up and find out what happened well let's go back to that story of the prisoner swap between russia and ukraine and it earlier i spoke to our correspondents on the ground our 2 correspondents in kiev and moscow for the latest. the knowledge was there yes status kept on changing we heard that the prisoner swap was going to fall through the balkans we end of august as a difficult time and i couldn't sleep for 5 days. they only told us today at 4 in the morning that we should pack and someone would pick us up all the time before the flight just crawled away in
a though someone known as an orphanage and all but also i'm very happy to be back i hope everything will be ok i want to thank everyone who supported us but doable now for more on this story we're joined by our correspondent nick connolly in moscow and kiev post at a time matthew cook in the ukrainian capital welcome to you both maggie starting with you bring us up to date with the latest what is happening right now in kiev. will the prisoner exchanges already happen here was a very emotional scene it q but he's full airport when the plane arrived the prisoner the former prisoners now exited the plane they embraced president will admit is announced he met their relatives a brace their relatives a lot of emotions a very happy scene there now likely being taken to in the medical clinic for medical checks but on this and that the the exchange has happened some of the people returned include as mention film director legs and solve a very proper prominent political prisoner but also 24 ukrainian sailors were
captured while crossing from the black sea into the as old city in november. journalist who was who is rested while visiting family in moscow also called probably had a night at the ukraine and was 19 in 2017 when he was basically kidnapped and illegally extradited to moscow from bella ruse so it's a very big emotional day for ukraine and nick how is this exchange of prisoners being received on the russian side. well hello there's a bit of a sort of asymmetrical side to this because not many of the people heading the other way coming to moscow are as well known in russia as is the case for those now traveling returns to keep their new really household name here to deal with shinseki a journalist who worked and headed the kiev office of a russian news agency apart from that not many people known to the wider russian public and indeed most of them are actually ukrainian citizens who were in
ukrainian jails for fighting or assisting the separatists i think this is less important for the russian domestic audience for russia's image abroad and we saw president putin meeting in rome a call for all it's in the last month and this is all part of steps to kind of show that russia is acting in good faith and willing to deescalate and try and find some kind of starts to a new resolution of the peace process we're talking about household names then matthew of course film director of next and so it was among the prisoners exchanged what is his release mean today. well it's a very significant moment for ukraine because he is of course highly publicly known it's a significant victory for president selenski but at the same time as a figure who is so dominant in narratives of political prisoners that sometimes it can actually suck the oxygen out of the room for other political prisoners there are still after this possibly up to somewhere around $200.00 ukrainian political prisoners of different types held in russia and as himself said to journalists
after he arrived you know the fight is not over they need to free the others so his return means it is a big moment for ukraine but it could also mean less attention to political prisoners actually right back to you then nic because you mentioned sound asymmetry adan how they swap is being perceived so what then is the significance of us what like this between ukraine and russia. while president selenski definitely very upbeat selling this as the start of big changes ahead and an apology to peace let's listen to what you have to say. we did have 2 connections telephone connection between 2 presidents and. if your. step we have to begin with all the steps publicly all the steps in minstrel since you know monday i have i just want to say about it.
we i hope we'll have the nearest meeting in normandy for march and we'll speak about it and will speak all the steps during. the future i during the nearest future we have to do all the steps to finish these horrible war. so finishing this horrible was president salutes as lecky says i think that is optimism that we haven't seen for a long time this is a peace process that has been stuck for years and hasn't been going anywhere but i think this is low hanging fruit as it were this was something that was relatively easy to do relatively small compromises having to be made on both sides the next steps will be much more painful this will be the bigger issues of providing some core kind of autonomy to these eastern ukrainian regions if their returns to kiev control and also what to do with all the people who serve the separatist forces
some kind of amnesty what is russia willing to give what is the grain going to give much less room for maneuver there and very tough negotiations ahead he says nick connelly in moscow and matthew cook for in kiev thank you very. much now some of the other stories making news around the world police 8 hong kong have tried to disperse protesters who gathered at a train station in an attempt to disrupt traffic to the airport her democracy activists who vowed to continue their protests despite on home leader karina announcing the with tour of a controversial extradition bill on wednesday. german chancellor angela merkel has called for the rights and freedoms of hong kong residents to be respected during a visit to china she made the comments after meeting with chinese premier and he could chang in beijing now calls arranged to strengthen business ties with china. well hurricane adoring speeding towards canada after making landfall in the u.s.
