7:03 pm
a referendum on joining russia. shit though. yep. crazy. mm hm. but it does, rick, but it is necessary to support the proposal of the ministry of defense and the general staff to hold a partial military mobilization in russia. i repeat, we are talking of a partial mobilization, only only people in the military reserve will be drafted when you, the priority will be on people who served in the armed forces or you have military specialization and experience. be of those drafted before being sent to the places of service will have mandatory additional training relying on experienced gained during the special military operation. the decree on partial mobilization has been signed to a lot of mac as to james bay's joins us live now from the un headquarters in new york and j. j. by me, me just had the perfect stage, didn't he? to deliver the u. s. his response to putin's threats, he did, he had the world say yes, he does. once a year, the un general assembly, every well lead a speaks, present biden's, turn, speak in the last hour. of course,
7:04 pm
i think the speech by president putin was deliberately timed to go ahead of a president biden, and the other will be, does deliberately time for this day the wednesday when the us president was speaking to the you, the un general assembly. so in many ways, a present for it in time this deliberately, but president biden very strong. this war is about extinguishing ukraine's right to exist as a state and ukrainians. right. to exist as a people, the told the 193 nations represented in the un general assembly that should make your blood run cold. it was a wide ranging speech from president vidal, obviously focusing on ukraine. the idea with a rally the general assembly, which voted very much in favor of ukraine, calling russia's actions and aggression earlier in the year. but they want to keep that broad support for ukraine and, and, and keep the idea that russia is breaking the un charter. that's the founding
7:05 pm
document to the un signed when the u. n. was formed 77 years ago, but the speech went beyond ukraine that he talked to about climate change. she talked about global health. he talks about the global food crisis, an important announcement there by the u. s. $2900000000.00 is going to go from the u. s. and additional funding to help alleviate that crisis. and also something about the u. n. itself and the way the u. n is structured, many members would like to see reform of the un security council. so while he's trying to persuade them about ukraine, he is also said the u. s. is very much in favor of reform and security council having more than the current 15 members expanding that and also having more than the 5 permanent members of the security council. and many members of the un here complain about the fact that they say as 5 of the victors of world war 2 and nothing has changed since the u. n. was founded at the end of world war 2 months of the talk at the you in general assembly james, this is of course about ukraine. several other countries have been criticizing
7:06 pm
rushes, talk of mobilize ational, partial, mobilize ation. one of the other responses that we've been hearing you've got a lot of criticism of this. they say it's an escalation of the war and you're going to hear more in the next 24 hours. because the un security council is going to meet at foreign minister level france is the president this month. the french foreign minister is going to preside. all 15 council members will be the foreign minister level and ukraine, because the meetings about ukraine is going to be there as well. so you have the prospects and we believe the russian foreign minister will attend of the russian foreign minister. i am the ukranian foreign minister around the table and i think that will be fresh a condemnation to come, that of what russia announced in recent hours in one of those seats. the u. k. seat will be the brand new u. k. foreign secretary james cleverly. i spoke to him earlier on and asked him about what president putin has announced. of these all, not the actions of
7:07 pm
a military leader who thinks this war is going to plan. we know we said so at the time that russia's plan was to sweep across ukraine in a matter of weeks. and yet what we see most recently is that being pushed back by the very, very professional actions of the ukrainian offices. so these words, a written response to failure rather than to success. and i suspect that all that would happen if these troops were put to the front line is yet more young russians would be lost in this illegal unprovoked, an unnecessary war. and what we call from russia to do is to remove its troops from ukraine to negotiate in good faith once it has done so and for the ukrainians to be given their country back. let me talk now about that warning from present. let me read you the exact words. if there is a threat to the territorial integrity of our country and for protecting our people, we will certainly use all the means available to us. and i am not bluffing. well
7:08 pm
the means he has includes nuclear weapons. how worried should we be? well, the point that we have made, we've made this throughout this conflict, is there has never been a threat to russia. this was his attack into ukraine. this was his war. this was his violence. this was his aggression to his neighbor. we do not and never posed a threat to russia, he brings this situation upon himself because of his aggression in ukraine. what we want all we want is for ukraine to be able to govern itself all of itself for the cranium, people to live in peace and prosperity. and for the wider global implications, including food price pressure that's being fell across the globe for those things to be alleviated by russia withdrawing from ukraine and allowing that country to get back to, to, to living. the last thing. one of the people though watching in the u. k. and all
7:09 pm
around the world, i'm going to be worried about these words. i am not bluffing from someone who's one of the major nuclear powers. are you worried about the possible use of technical nuclear weapons? we had a recent comment from the former deputies section of nato rose guatemala, who said it was a deep concern to her. well, as i said, nato has never been an aggressive alliance is a purely defensive alliance. the ukrainians are defending their homeland against invaders from russia, and there has not been them. there has never been a threat to russia itself. you say that? but he says he's not bluffing. i mean, are you worried that cornered now he might do something that previously was unthinkable the, the, the, the right thing for him to do, the right thing for russia to do is to leave you crime. let ukraine rebuild itself, rebuild it's economy and to start behaving as
7:10 pm
a proper international, paul. and that's what we've ever asked for and to escalate the rhetoric as we've seen here, is unnecessary. it doesn't, it doesn't help in any way at all. and as i've said, our resolve to support the ukrainians in the legitimate defense of their sovereign territory is wavering. the british foreign secretary james, cleverly speaking to me earlier. and as you can see, it's pretty tense the situation with regard to russia and ukraine. and it's clearly the issue that is dominating the un general assembly. you might think there is no positive news, but i can tell you behind the scenes in recent days, we've learned that there are some negotiations underway between russia and ukraine for a prisoner swap. we know that turkey has been involved in those new goes ations. well, i can't confirm anything yet,
7:11 pm
but we are hearing rumblings that something may even be underway as we speak. i mentioned turkey, but there's some talk are coming from ria that saudi arabia may have been involved in the diplomacy of this as well. we're trying to see confirmation that something may now be underway with regard to a prisoner swap. we'll get back to you when we have more, absolutely tens phase thanks very much rains. the very latest there from the nice nations will follow that business up. story very closely. now nato chief, that gen felton berg has warned the vladimir putin announcement, well, father escalate the war. but he also said that the move shows that russian troops are struggling the speech, her portion of the social, the armed forces of russia. just demonstrate that her, he miscalculated, that he made a big mistake, strategic mistake, and walked, i've seen so far as that. so the russian troops are ill equipped, they lack a proper command and control, and they're also have a struggle,
7:12 pm
a lot with logistics, but of course more troops or will escalate the conflict that will mean more suffering, more loss of life's ukrainian lives, but also russian lives and ross, not listening to relax in the valley is on said chris size, the president. it uses prisoner sending more russians to die. and what have only cause a criminal aggression felony spoke during a court hearing of the petition, he filed against the prison. he's being held in after facility refused to let him create a trade union and have been small protests in russia as people oppose the military mobilization is beat pictures, so people being taken away by police and the western city of york, italian bag, a monitoring group says more than 109 people have been arrested, or gabrielle xander has more reaction now from keith in ukraine, with battlefield losses mounting and a ukrainian counter offensive advancing. russian president vladimir putin says now
7:13 pm
was the time to mobilize more troops, yet as a she the nationally to protect her motherland, its sovereignty and territorial integrity to ensure the security of our nation and people in the liberated areas. i consider it necessary to call for partial mobilization in russia, or the defense minister says as many as 300000 russian reservists will report for duty immediately. but more could be called up if necessary. thornton also confirmed that he would push ahead with a referendum in for regions of ukraine, including the don boss. the referendum will ask one question. do you want to join the russian federation? that referendum, often a precursor to full annexation of territory, could happen as early as this week. he might go prison, blood amused whiskey urged allies to focus on what is important for ukraine. the drum kit is growing, actually more support for the armed forces for intelligent services,
7:14 pm
for the special operations and security service, for the national guard police, and the border guards for everyone who is gradually restoring a territorial integrity. western allies have said they will not recognize a russian lead referendum or annexation of ukrainian territories. calling it illegal. some analysts call a referendum, a pre determined sham, and a desperate ploy by putin. there is no free media to talk at to talk her about the issue. there is no other action observe is there is no fair county, et cetera, et cetera. and even without talking about all illegality of the theme, because it's and on the relation of ukrainian and international. but in his speech, paul left little doubt, he is ready to escalate this war. warriors, civilian russia has a variety of weapons of destruction getting some more molten to those and nato countries as i shoot there. and if our territorial integrity is threatened,
7:15 pm
we will use all the means at our disposal to protect russia and our people. this is not a glove. it's unclear of moving more troops to the front lines and annexing ukrainian territory will be enough to turn the tide in an operation that hasn't gone according to prudence plan. what is clear is this war is changing the land and potentially entering a new, even more dangerous phase. gabe rosato al jazeera keith r ron's present. abraham rises as western nations have double standards. i say also earlier address the un general assembly in new york. he's, as iran has faced too much scrutiny over it's nuclear activities, not hardly can organize as young yet did. jani does a double standard used when speaking of iran's nuclear capacity, we all know that it is for human and peaceful endeavors. but some countries are keen on portraying this as a threat in order to avoid what they should rightly faced themselves,
7:16 pm
which is the nuclear i zation. and i say as the leader of iran's government, that we are not seeking to build or obtain nuclear weapons, such weapons have no place in our doctrine. harkens. hannah is still gaining strength as at rips through. the car been is now being classified as the category full storm residence of the tags and caicos islands have been ordered to take shelter. meanwhile, the hurricane has left a trail of destruction in the region. kelly, one person, dominican republic, and 4 people and puerto rico on rap hello reports from san juan hurricane. fiona bears down on turks and keiko silence making landfall as a powerful category. 3 storm, threatening to devastate the tiny caribbean archipelago in the dominican republic. crops have been destroyed in houses damaged by the 1st major hurricane of the atlantic season. oh, new york. oh, the ferry does farming well. it depends on production on the crops and everything
