7:00 pm
don't know if we'll ever see him again. i just want my boy back end of quote or lane a story. and those of many others tell us the truth, the real truth. this is a war of annexation, a war of conquest to which president putin now wants to send even more of russia's young men and women making peace even less like at best likely, mister putin must understand the world is watching and we will not give up a members of the security council, we must unequivocally reject russia's attempts to annex ukrainian territory. we must make clear to president putin that his attack on the ukrainian people must stop, that there can be no impunity for those perpetrating atrocities. and that he must withdraw from ukraine. and restore regional and global stability if
7:01 pm
he chose to he could stop this war a war which has done untold damage to the ukrainian and the russian peoples. his war is an assault on ukraine. an assault on un charter and an assault on the international norms that protect us all. so we stand with our ukranian friends for as long as it takes because ukraine's fight for freedom is the world's fight for freedom. it is our fight for freedom. and if you crane sovereignty and territory are not respected, then no country is truly secure. these are the reasons why ukraine can and must when thank that was james and cleverly the farm and stuff for the united kingdom. speaking the off, the 2nd row of the russian foreign minister at
7:02 pm
a un security council meeting on ukraine. a meeting of 4 minutes is the 1st since russia invaded ukraine back in february, that's bringing correspondent alan fisher. it also been listening in the end. we heard, 1st of all and 2nd lover of russian foreign minister repeating the same narrative we've been hearing out of russia that they are fighting near nazis in ukraine, who been dehumanizing people living in separatist areas of ukraine and interesting . he then left the chamber when the u. k. foreign minister started speaking he only arrived in the chamber just before his turn to speak. and of course, as you see, we heard from sergey oliver of that this special military operation. as the russians call, it was inevitable. he went on to list a series of alleged crimes. he says, were committed against russian speaking people across ukraine. since 2014,
7:03 pm
when there was a new government, it installed in and cave by a what appeared to be a popular revolt not popular as far as cellular lovers concerned, he saw the hands of western nations behind it. and he also pointed to the i c. c. seeing no, the international criminal court is investigating allegations of war crimes that have been committed in ukraine since the start of the war in february. will have they been for the last 7 years when russia has been pointing to problems and alleged crimes and abuses of human rights in russian speaking areas in ukraine says 2014. this was sergei oliver of a being a prime sergey lover of not stair stepping back, pushing forward with the the russian message. seeing that it is very clear that the ukrainians are full of the government is full of fascists. the or the west is
7:04 pm
helping them with as many weapons as they can possibly. poland because their view is that a prolonged war will weaken russia. james cleverly as you see at the new yuki of foreign secretary, seeing that sergei left lover of left the room because he didn't want to hear the collective condemnation. and that is certainly true. what we've heard from the majority of speakers is condemnation of the russian operation. in ukraine, seeing that the ruler, the really has to be a solution to this soon. as the irish foreign minister said, this war will end. and it is up to the united nations to make sure that it ends sooner rather than later through negotiation. ellen, we are also expecting the ukrainian foreign minister to speak and just a few moments. and of course we'll cross back to that when he starts. after that, we are expecting that to be some kind of debate, but what ultimately will come of this meeting?
7:05 pm
well, i think what the americans and others have been clear and, and it's clear that messages have been coordinated. each country is focusing on a different part of the war while it certainly expressing general condemnation of what is happening in ukraine. i did, the international criminal court is investigating, but there won't be a specific reference from the security council. and of course, the security council, if there was to be a vote on any sanctions against russia, if there was to be any action against russia. and there was a vote then there would be a veto, and that veto would come from russia. and that's the point that blood moves zalinski made in his video address to the united nations general assembly on wednesday. while russia is involved in breaching un conventions by invading another sovereign nation and trying to take territory from them than this should be suspended from the united nations,
7:06 pm
that they should lose the right to vote. and they should certainly roost lose the right to veto in the un security council. and certainly it's this situation that is leading people to say that has to be a rethink of the way that the united nations is built, particularly the security council. they should perhaps be more members of the security council and more permanent members as well. because remember, this security council was established in the aftermath of the 2nd world war and was built built to deal with the realities of a post war world. and the world has changed dramatically since then, and many countries think it's no time for the u. n. to change as well. and unfair south, thanks very much for joining us there. i will come back to you later once we hear the ukrainian foreign minister speaking and within the next half hour, we imagine well as you just heard, russia's foreign minister sag oliver of left the meeting as his country faced more and more criticism, he attempted to defend the invasion minutes earlier,
7:07 pm
it wasn't the one that was to the you room. today's meeting was motivated by the intention of several delegations to discuss the topic of impunity in ukraine. i think this very timely because this is precisely this term. impunity reflects what has been going on in that country. since 2014, the national radical forces opened, russo folks and neo nazis, came to power them as a result of an armed coup with direct support of western countries. and right after that, they took the path of lawlessness and totally ignoring main rights and freedom. yes, actually i said anthony blank and also spoke earlier. he said the russian president vladimir putin cannot be allowed to shred the international order. it must be asked, how has this aggression against ukraine, by president putin improve the lives or prospects of a single russian citizen?
7:08 pm
one man chose this war. one man can end it. because if russia stops fighting the war ends. if you grant stops fighting ukraine ends. that's why we will continue to support ukraine as it defends itself. a chinese farm . it's a one year spike next. and he said that china has played its part in supporting you claim with humanitarian aid. president jim team pointed out that his sovereignty territory, integrity of all countries, should be respected. washer johnson, the purposes and the principle of the un charter should be observed go go to hoodie . the reasonable security concerns of all countries should be taken seriously and all efforts that could help resolved the crisis should be support. it won't go to china, follows ukraine's humanitarian situation very closely and has assisted ukraine with
7:09 pm
35000000 un of humanitarian supplies. only a mile off to a president who tends partial mobilization coal on wednesday, russian men have been turning up at military centers after they were caught up for military service to fight in the war. in that ukraine than a smith has the story. there is no much time to say good bye here in soccer. russia's far east, most of these men had only 24 hours. notice that they were being drafted into russia's army, but some of the 300000 reservists being called up to fight in ukraine. oh, not every one is going willing, oh, and augustine, russia. so the most tim reservists confront a woman at the military commission. what's it for this was this man shout o lepeu to protect his own policies. not hide behind all men and children. i. 6

7:11 pm

7:26 pm
and rush on should no one think it will never be able to kill all of us. and here is why because i'm february 24th. when russia attack ukraine from all directions within the 1st 24 hours, tens of thousands of ukrainians returned from abroad to defend their country. and what happened within the 1st 24 hours after president pushing announced, mobilize ation the opposite. thousands of russians booked international flights to leave russia, how many flights were sold out within hours yesterday put in announced mobilization. but what he really announced before the whole world was his defeat. you can draw 30500000 people, but he will never win this war. today, every ukrainian is a weapon ready to defend ukraine,
7:27 pm
and the principles enshrined in the un charter prussia will fail and will bear full responsibility for the crime of aggression and consequent war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. yesterday president zelinski made it clear and his address, the thrush, and responsibility is a key element to international peace and security, ukrainian warring horsemen together with partners that the international criminal court and countries who support both ukraine and the i see she worked collectively to collect evidence of russian crimes and hold perpetrators to account we trust in the international criminal court. justice will be served. we owe it not only to thousands of victims, but the future, future generations in ukraine and beyond. there will be no peace without justice. i emphasize that none of the russian crimes in ukraine would have been possible
7:28 pm
without the crime of aggression against ukraine committed by a russian leadership. it can not go unpunished. and the only feasible way to put president putin and his entourage on trial is to establish a special tribunal for the crime of aggression against ukraine. i reiterate my call in all states to back this undertaking for the sake of the very basic principles of humanity. and the un charter excellence is millions. you may listen to me right now with one question in mind. is there a chance for peace? will ukraine negotiate with russia in order to end this war? i want to stayed crystal clear. no other nation in the world graves for peace, more than ukraine prism zelinski was very outspoken about it. yesterday. we have never wanted anything but piece and stable development. we have never wanted this
7:29 pm
war and never chose it. we simply want to live normal life. but it's not enough for ukraine to want peace. russia must prioritize diplomacy over war in order to give peace, a chance. what we see instead is russian leadership seeking a military solution. only distinguished colleagues. this chamber has seen many heated debates since 945, many crisis. but the amount of flies coming from the russian diplomats is quite extraordinary. today, we are mostly focusing on crimes committed by russian soldiers in ukraine. but if anyone thinks they are the only one ready to kill torture, rape, cut off the genitals. they are wrong. russian diplomats aren't directly complicit because they are lies inside these crimes and cover them
7:30 pm
up. apparently the only thing in today's address by russian in the store and of lies worth of reaction is the inappropriate slang used when. when mentioning a president of a foreign country, the president of ukraine. i also noted to day that russian diplomats flee almost as aptly as russian soldiers before february 24th russian diplomats. here the united nations had repeatedly denied clams off the full scale invasion of ukraine. the russian president himself light into the face of european leaders, saying he was not planning to attack. it was days before the invasion. russia is shameless. they sit in the chair they occupied in 1991 on dubious legal grounds. armed with the right.
