al zeros hud abdul. hamid traveled to southern towns and ukrainian control territory to hear what residents there have to say about this vote. it's always the same desolate seals go, sounds destroyed, so less. this is the cause. ukraine is paying to regain control of land that was occupied by russia. we are invested got pedia in the north of his tunnel region. the look on the faces of those who stayed. tell the story. here. there is no sign of referendum, but the russians are just 5 kilometers away. and people their vote to decide if the son should join the russian federation. the referendum is a sham, according to the coastal administration. now an exiled auto moving from us. we are getting information from local people there. you should understand. it's not a referendum, it's a movie. everything is done for the cameras. there was no preparation,

3:07 am
taken place. over the past 5 days, marianna had stayed in russian control part of that body. jeff was 7 months. she says, being forced to vote was the last straw, but for his diversity. lina, this is a bittersweet moment and i bought it and gives me all your life. you grow up with people, you work with them, you live next to them. and then all of a sudden they embrace the colors of russia and they are happy and smiling that they are part of russia. and while the international community has declared the referendum, illegal, ukrainian fear that the vote will mean even more and more devastation before they regain control of their country. and of the meat elizabeth in southern ukraine. one of president vladimir putin is biggest allies, has issued rushes, blunt is nuclear threat, yet demetrius beta says that he believes nato will not intervene if russia decides to attack ukraine when nuclear weapons that they deaf is a former russian president. now, the head of the deputy,
3:08 am
the deputy head of the national security council against president has addressed the un security council as it needs to discuss the russian referendums. vote him years. lensky says the international community means to take urgent action against moscow or diplomatic added to james bass has more. as the security council was convened, russia was already signalling. it was about to declare victory in the fall referenda in easton, ukraine. but the u. n's political chief made it clear those votes had no legitimacy in international law. they cannot be called a genuine expression at the popular will. speaking to the security council for the 4th time since the russian invasion in february, ukraine's president vladimir zalinski, called for russia to be kicked out of all international organizations, including the u. n. a implementation of the so called crime means scenario and another attempt to and that's ukrainian territory will mean that there is nothing
3:09 am
to talk about with these prep, president of russia. annexation is the kind of move that it's him alone against the whole of humanity, rushes ambassador vaseline the benzine warm. these referenda may not be the last or didn't all sicilian in your book. now care of is being rejected not only by the people of crimea and dom bus, but kerosene ends up pollution yet region. this process is going to continue if give does not recognize its mistake and its strategic errors. that this process could continue after the meeting. i got reaction to that from the us ambassador. they did it in 2014, and now they're doing it again. so they, i have no doubts in my mind that they will attempt to do it. and that's why it's so important that we stand against this immediately. ambassador thomas greenfield says she plans to bring a draft resolution condemning russia to a vote in the security council. as early as the end of this week,
3:10 am
russia then would clearly use its veto, bought the u. s, and its allies then planning to bring things to all 193 members of the u. n. of the general assembly. james bays al jazeera, the united nations. joining us now from alexandria, virginia donald, the ensign he is russia, director of the us institute of peace, donald. now that the vote is over, what happens? well, as your reporter said, this is a farce. people have been forced to vote, most of the people who would vote against the referendum have left there. there's no doubt in anybody's mind that the majority of people in these core areas to court staying and ukraine. so i just wanted to emphasize that the problem, it's in the kremlin, that the hooton's military is doing badly, couldn't needs to show some results because the criticism at home is getting stronger and what he's decided to do. and i would emphasize after much hesitation,
3:11 am
the gramlin is to hold the sham referendum. it doesn't really mean very much. ah, ukraine may well push them back further as you know, the happened doing very well in care, so on. so this is not crimea in 2014 is, is there a pu to him and we're holding a weakening hand, trying to shore his position. now he can claim that this is part of russia. it's not, he can complain. he came up say they might use nuclear weapons to defend this because we're now russian. well, it's not russian. and so a lot of what guten administrative them saying the past few days is, are probably bluffing. and in any case, ah, is meant to offset a weakening political position for putin and the kremlin. he's got a trouble on the battlefield. he's got trouble with his hours, like india and china. he's got trouble with a domestic public opinion. as you see, 300000 ro, ma'am,
3:12 am
have hog the borders to live. so you say this is not crimea in 2014, but it does look a lot like the very same playbook. you know, 1st you have that 1st you have the referendum, the vote by the local population to join russia. then at some point, you're very likely to have, in this case as was the case in crimea recognition and an exit formal annexation. in the case of crimea, look at worked from the point of view of latimer potent, you know, it is now beyond ukraine's reach. is the same thing going to happen with these regions? the not likely their key differences. i would say crime is out of the cranes reach for now. what are the differences ukraine military as much, much stronger the population in the sean and the other 23 places is overwhelmingly against annexation. and 3 rushes on hold on. those regions is very shaky, as you know, in car half, not where referendum is taking place. but a lot of other areas do lugens done yet, russia has been pushed back. so the whole,
3:13 am
the, the rushes army which left of it at least, is much more tenuous in these areas than in crimea in 2014 the frame ukraine army is not very powerful. it barely existed in 2014. so, russia's russia, the argument, now, russia's rationale here is that, well, if this is going to be russia, then if there is an attack on these territories, we're going to respond as if it were russia. therefore, we're going to respond with full force. they've even agitated the threat of nuclear attacks. does ukraine do? it's west and backers now have to treat these regions differently. i don't think so because you probably now here in washington this week, he's been a huge debate about russian intentions about nuclear weapons. ah, the russian military doctrine is very, very clear. and essentially, russia's claims the right to use nuclear weapons when an opponent does it, certainly the west tomato will not. and 2nd, when
3:14 am
a quote threatens the security of the state, that is also not the case here. so i think while there's a possibility, however, remote back to this, what might happen? i think it's not likely, at least at the moment. ah, what russia will do. it becomes more desperate for granted ranches. it would have to see, but i think for now couldn't, can now go to his constituents, go to people, criticized him of her being too weak and say, look, we have taken over these 4 places. the problem of course, is that nobody believes, or donnelly anson, joining us from alexandria virginia. thank you so much. thank you. so head on al jazeera, i am not backing down. protesters defy is security cracked down in iran where anger continues to spread over the death of a young woman in police custody? ah,
3:15 am
anticipation is rising. and so is the atmosphere. a, you read the way, spoke to my cattle anyways. the monsoon reigns continue to respond further toward the south across india. hi everyone. so here's the latest pitcher on wednesday. i think our heaviest frowns of rain will stretch from entrepreneur dash west bank. all right through into my harass straw. but as we would expect this time of the year, the rains are slumping further toward the south. okay, here's an update on this type. it could be the strongest storm to strike because sto, vietnam's, coastal city of denying a super typhoon here. so ahead of that landfall, we're talking about sustained winds exceeding 200 kilometers per hour and could scoop up denying more than a months worth of rain over the span of about 48 to 72 hours. now japan, also a storm just to the use of the main island of hon. sure. here it's going to give us some northerly winds in the forecast on wednesday, but by and large, you're going to escape the bronze of this storm. china is still the bubble of heats
3:16 am
. we've got around gray, lynn. so we've got you in for a high 35 degrees and look at that. those outer bands of nor room i think are just going to spread some rain and showers into hong kong with a high of 31 degrees full in this weather report in pockets done right now. and again, the monsoon rains have withdrawn from here. so quite dry conditions. few clouds drifting around in karachi with a high of 32 degrees on wednesday. and now you're in the know the west sponsored by catch me. so much is the is of evil, number a labor government. it will not be tolerated. any one, so beneath the surface lies a darker side in bush politics, the labor file part 3. on al jazeera, i've been covering all of latin america for most of my career, but no country is alike,
3:17 am
and it's my job to shed light on how and why me the me you're watching. i was a 0 reminder of our headlines this. our referendums in occupied areas of ukraine have ended with moscow and pro russian separatists declaring victory. they claim most people voted to join russia, reaching upwards of 95 percent in some territories. keith and it's western allies say the vote in the sham. the un security council has discussed the referendums in ukraine. the u. n. political affairs chief says the votes have no legitimacy and international law. ukraine's president told the council, the world must take action against moscow. and a senior russian official has issued the biggest nuclear threat so far in the war
3:18 am
for president dimitria. and beta says he believes natal won't intervene in russia decides to attack ukraine with nuclear weapons. denmark's energy minister suspects that blasts were the cause of gas leaks to major pipelines between russia and europe, nor the stream. one normally, ships gas from russia directly to germany. however, deliveries were suspended by russia earlier this month because of a stand off over sanctions. denmark and sweden 1st reported the leagues near the island of bourne home. shipping near the lions has now been restricted step thus, and it is in the german town of lou mid point where nordstrom meets land gas bubbling up over an area of more than one square kilometer in the baltic sea near the danish island of bourne home. 3 huge leaks detected at both, not $31.00 and $2.00 is too much of a coincidence, according to your opinion, leaders and energy experts. jewish matters. and we see clearly that this has an
3:19 am
active sabotage, an act which likely means a further step of escalation. with this equation in crane, sweetie, sites me, ologist say day recorded to explosions before the leaks were detected. one on sunday night and one on monday evening. the not an earthquake that's very clear. and we also have quite a lot of data on lost in the water in the area, slightly closer to the swedish coast. when the swedish navy have training exercises and the loss of minds for example, and they often let us know about the particulars of that. so as the data from yesterday's last are very similar, there's no doubt that these are explosions occurring in the water. germany has not been receiving any gas from these pipelines for the last few weeks when russia stopped supplies through not 31, nor to him to never started operations. germany decided to pull the block just
3:20 am
before russia invaded ukraine. in february, the north stream pipelines had been at the height of an ongoing dispute on how dependent europe and specifically germany had become an russian gas called, grew on germany to stop by in russian gas in the invasion of ukraine. but it was russia not germany had decided to completely pause the supply of nor 31 just a few weeks ago, but nowadays, seriously damaged. it's clear that no rush and gas will flow through these pipelines anytime soon. the leaks show once more, how vulnerable europe's energy suppliers and how vulnerable the gas pipes are. 2 attacks, technically speaking, this is not difficult. i mean, it just requires a boat requires some divers know how to handle explosive devices. and then depending on the water depth, the may be some special diving equipment. or you could do it with some some of those modern under what submarines would ukraine blaming russia for sabotaging the
3:21 am
pipelines artists have been more careful in pointing the finger before more investigations. step, fasten al jazeera and loop men on the belt. the coast of florida is brace for its most powerful storm in more than a century. hurricane in is intensifying as it moves towards the us in tampa. 2.5000000 people are under evacuation orders. the category for storm is expected to make landfall later on wednesday. it's already battered parts of the caribbean, including cuba, where a 1000000 people have been left without power. and b. c. news correspondent, crisp alone has the latest from tampa. areas along the florida gulf coast have been getting ready and as matter of fact, the governor, the local leaders, have told the lowest lying areas, the people directly on a body of water be at the gulf or a river to start evacuating. and those evacuation orders started yesterday. and so as yesterday, as progress is it today, we've started to see more and more evacuation orders as that forecast track has
3:22 am
kind of become more clear. so yes, those areas that are most vulnerable have been under mandatory evacuation orders for a while governor of florida, ron to say it and said a short time ago, that there's still time to leave before this storm hits. but that time is quickly running out with hours of onshore winds and heavy rain. it doesn't take a lot to push the water of the gulf of mexico and tampa bay inland. and they were predicting as late as yesterday up to 10 feet of storm surge. and so if that had happened, it really would have been catastrophic. now. does that mean that tampa won't get a significant storm surge? of course not. but that real significant heavy, a storm surge now is expected to be south of here, those low lying areas, those coastal towns, those beaches will be expecting high water. and officials here say when many structures in florida can handle winds of
3:23 am
a category 3 or 4 storm. it is really the storm surge. it is really flooding that local officials say cause the most depth. and that's what they want people to get away from a cuba was 1st to seal the full force of hurricane in. it may landfall in pinado, rio province early on tuesday, 14th, forcing 40000 people to evacuate from low lying coastal areas. and augustine is on the ground hurricane in made a direct hit on this city philadelphia just a few hours ago. and as you can see, all around me is left the trail of destruction in its wake. that's hundreds of trees that have been felt in the city lamppost, electricity, cables, all over the main roads and buildings have also collapsed behind me. the school. you can see that part of the reason belong during the hurricane. people are just starting to emerge from the houses now to survey the destruction over in the pacific. more than 800000 people in viet nam, are evacuating as typhoon no rule approaches. it's anticipated to be one of the

3:26 am
things easier for inspector, so it's called the road ties charnock, av device warner, me to inspect fuel palm, but something that is currently being done by inspectors. these seals are an important way for the agency to make sure that the material that they have counted, stays where it needs to. and currently what they're using is this model. and what the inspectors do is they at cut the seal this part of it and bring it back to headquarters and a check the seal itself to make sure it hasn't been tampered with. now what they will be using in the near future is this model. this doesn't need to come back to headquarters and it doesn't need an inspector to check it, because if anyone tries to tamper with it and it will automatically break it, is this agency's job to verify the peaceful use of nuclear material? a task that's more critical now than ever before him, but there's been violence between security forces and demonstrators,
