The Russia-Ukraine war dominated the airwaves once again last night. Al Hayah Al Youm highlighted the UN General Assembly’s vote to censure Russia (watch, runtime: 3:08), while Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa gave a rundown of the fighting, casualties and material damage (watch, runtime: 7:52), and took a call with former Oil Minister Osama Kamal about the war’s effect on global energy markets (watch, runtime: 9:16).

And from the nothing-to-do-with-the-war file:

All 98 women judges appointed to the Council of State (Maglis El Dawla) will officially assume their positions on the court’s benches starting Saturday, council Secretary-General Taha Karsou told Yahduth Fi Masr (watch, runtime: 5:00).

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi inaugurated housing and road projects in Greater Cairo yesterday and instructed the government to prepare a study on ways to ease traffic. Al Hayah Al Youm aired part of El Sisi’s speech (watch, runtime: 1:19) and Masaa DMC had the details (watch, runtime: 4:58).
