in response, ukraine has formally applied tojoin nato. our russia editor steve rosenberg reports. what he was about to do had sparked international condemnation, but vladimir putin didn't care. in the kremlin, he announced the annexation of 15% of ukrainian land. in the audience, kremlin—appointed officials from those territories occupied by russia. translation: | want the kyiv i authorities and their real masters in the west to hear me, so that they remember this forever. people in luhnask and donetsk, kherson and zaporizhzhia are becoming our citizens — forever. defiant, unapologetic — russia's president laid into the west. translation: instead -
of democracy there, there's suppression and exploitation. instead of freedom, enslavement and violence. america is the only country in the world that has used nuclear weapons twice, when they destroyed the japanese cities of hiroshima and nagasaki. by the way, they set a precedent with that. comments like that are worrying in light of the kremlin�*s recent nuclear sabre—rattling. through this annexation, vladimir putin is trying to change the facts on the ground, trying to secure for himself some kind of victory. the problem is, you can claim all you want that land you have occupied is rightfully yours, but ukraine isn't going to believe that. the international community doesn't believe that, and that leaves vladimir putin looking more isolated than ever. in washington, president biden condemned the annexation and impose more sanctions on russia.
we are rallying the world to keep support for ukraine strong and consistent. applause ukraine's right to exist as a people. moscow says these territories are joining russia after holding referendums, but they've been widely discredited. the west denounced them as a sham, a smoke screen for annexation. near red square, some kremlin choreography. workers and students have been bussed in to celebrate russia's expansion. but there's little public excitement here over annexation and there is growing alarm about russians being called up to fight in ukraine. and inside the kremlin — the signing ceremony. plenty of pomp, but think of the circumstance. vladimir putin has just raised the stakes. he's warned he will defend
the annexed territories with all means at his disposal, and he says he's not bluffing. steve rosenberg, bbc news, moscow. the us has announced more sanctions against russia. president biden says the us will not be intimidated by putin. america and its allies will not be intimidated. we will not be intimidated by putin and his reckless words of threats. —— words and threats. he won't scare us or intimidate us. putin's actions are a sign he's struggling, the sham referendum he carried out. earlier, we spoke to barbara plett usher in washington for more details on the us response to russia's latest actions. one of the sanction�*s measures is to threaten imposing costs on any country that does, in fact, recognise president putin's moves.
now that would not be very many, but i think the idea isjust to really isolate russia on the world stage, and the americans say that their g7 allies are prepared to do the same. the sanctions also target the military—industrial complex — several international suppliers have been sanctioned, as well as various people associated with them. and this is part of an ongoing effort by the us to try and cripple russia's ability to make more weapons. the sanctions also target from a senior financial officials, including the governor of the central bank and the deputy governor — and i think that's because they've helped to buffer the impact of existing sanctions on russia. and then, also hundreds of officials have been targeted, including nearly 300 members of the russian legislature — that's with asset freezes and blocking us transactions, just to send the message that the us will continue to try to isolate them, as well.
russia has vetoed a resolution at the un security council which had condemned its annexation of parts of ukraine. the resolution, put forward by the us, china, brazil and ukraine. the resolution, put forward by the us, china, braziland india ukraine's president zelensky has applied for a fast track to join the nato military alliance, saying ukraine won't negotiate with russia as long as vladimir putin is in power. he's reading something that's been said since 2008, talk us through what this process might look like, especially with ukraine being
involved in a war. what would joining nato look like at this point? he joining nato look like at this oint? , point? he can be as fast as slow as he wants to — point? he can be as fast as slow as he wants to be. _ point? he can be as fast as slow as he wants to be. we've _ point? he can be as fast as slow as he wants to be. we've seen - point? he can be as fast as slow as he wants to be. we've seen that i point? he can be as fast as slow as he wants to be. we've seen that if| he wants to be. we've seen that if there is a consensus in the alliance, aside from turkey, they can make it very quickly. but they are a couple problems. first of all, you need unanimity, in some countries within the nato alliance are unwilling to give heavy weapons to ukraine. they are certainly unwilling to invest in the defence of ukraine. in the second thing is that ukraine is in an active conflict, and the significant lee raises the stakes of nuclear war, so they will help ukraine resist russian aggression. but he made no other assurances about nato membership. other assurances about nato membership-— other assurances about nato membership. other assurances about nato membershi. ., ,, ., ., , membership. now russia has raised stakes with its _ membership. now russia has raised stakes with its recent _ membership. now russia has raised stakes with its recent annexation. i stakes with its recent annexation. in terms of an escalation —— how
much of an isolation that is, witter crane dashwood ukraine going into nato mean it is directly involved in a war with russia? how dangerous of a war with russia? how dangerous of a situation would that be?— a situation would that be? russians have always — a situation would that be? russians have always viewed _ a situation would that be? russians have always viewed ukraine... - a situation would that be? russians. have always viewed ukraine... we've seen some training programmes or the gradual inflow of arms from the united states into the ukrainian army. so these narratives that nato and ukraine are basically launching and ukraine are basically launching a war of the democrat aggression against russia are not new. but it would clearly be... protests against the mobilisation, and down the line, it can actually lead to a nuclear escalation, if that were to happen. medvedev�*s initial comments could point towards that direction. large parts of ukraine, many ukrainians
will be wiped off the map, which sounds like a very ominous threat from moscow. it sounds like a very ominous threat from moscow— from moscow. it certainly is, samuel. _ from moscow. it certainly is, samuel, thank _ from moscow. it certainly is, samuel, thank you _ from moscow. it certainly is, samuel, thank you for - from moscow. it certainly is, | samuel, thank you forjoining from moscow. it certainly is, - samuel, thank you forjoining us. thank you. let's turn to the us — hurricane ian has made landfall in south carolina, after devastating florida. this is the historic coastal city of charleston — which is being lashed by winds and heavy rain. there are warnings of life—threatening storm surges of up to seven feet. for more on the devastation already caused by hurricane ian in florida, i'm joined now by our correspondent nada tawfik, who is in fort myers, thanks for talking to us. it's looks like even behind you, it's been quite a devastating hurricane. absolutely, we are bent back from the water —— a bit back from the water, and you can see how far the wind, the storm surges through these boats behind me, completely destroying the marina where i am.
fort myers is one of the heaviest hit areas, people have been coming all throughout the morning and afternoon to survey the damage, to calculate the costs, quite frankly, not only to their personal property but those who run businesses out of here. a charter boat captain said this should be the time when they are preparing for the busiest tourist season, the october to april time period down here. now all of thatis time period down here. now all of that is gone. going through the rest of fort myers, as well, the gas stations, long lines to get gasoline, peoplejust stations, long lines to get gasoline, people just trying to get food and water. so very much still the early days of trying to recover from this storm here. so the early days of trying to recover from this storm here. 50 a the early days of trying to recover from this storm here. so a process of recovery — from this storm here. so a process of recovery going _ from this storm here. so a process of recovery going on _ from this storm here. so a process of recovery going on there, - from this storm here. so a process of recovery going on there, but - from this storm here. so a processj of recovery going on there, but are there fears of more devastation from hurricane ian?— there fears of more devastation from hurricane ian?_ hurricane ian? look, the search and rescue operation _ hurricane ian? look, the search and rescue operation is _ hurricane ian? look, the search and rescue operation is still _ hurricane ian? look, the search and rescue operation is still going - hurricane ian? look, the search and rescue operation is still going on - rescue operation is still going on to the barrier islands, that have
been cut off from the mainland. authorities still have to assess the situation on those islands as the coastguard air lifts people back here to shore. you also have a situation where they are having to look at the bridges, and having to get the power lines back up and running. still under2 get the power lines back up and running. still under 2 million people without power in the state. still very much a situation where they are assessing and getting everything back up. you mentioned other parts of the state — we know as far up as florida, there's been some flooding, saint augustine up in north central florida. it's notjust the coast that's been affected, but other parts of miles and miles away. we will leave it there, but thank you very much. stay with us on news, still to come... after a corner rules that social media did play a death in the
british —— play a hand in the death of british teenager molly russell and taking her life, we will speak with a charity trying to prevent suicide. in all russia's turmoil, it has never quite come to this. president yeltsin said today would decide the nation's destiny. the nightmare that so many people have feared for so long is playing out its final act here. russians are killing russians in front of a grandstand audience. it was his humility that produced affection from catholics throughout the world. but his departure is a tragedy for the catholic church. this man, israel's right—winger ariel sharon, visited the religious compound, and that started the trouble. he wants israel alone to have sovereignty over the holy sites, an idea that's unthinkable to palestinians. after 45 years of division, germany is one. - in berlin, a million germans-
celebrated the rebirth of europe's biggest and richest nation. this is news, the latest headlines... president putin has announced the illegal annexation of four of four regions of ukraine. the west has responded with more sanctions against russia. ukrainian officials in zaporizhia — one of the four areas annexed today — say 30 people have been killed and 88 more injured after a russian missile strike on a convoy of civilian vehicles. 0ur ukraine correspondentjames waterhouse has been to the site of the attack, on the outskirts of the city. a warning, his report contains some distressing details. there was no doubting the target. this was about killing
civilians, people. here, waiting to be escorted to russian occupied territory, they work methodically, patiently, under an eerie silence. until... people arrived to find someone dear to them has gone. victoria had stepped out for a break at the cafe where she worked. she came back to find her boss lying dead on the floor. translation: people were dying here. i was away for five minutes and when i came back, i saw a boy dying, his mother trying to save him. then i ran around calling out for my boss. there was somebody�*s mother, her son saving her. somebody�*s husband, his wife weeping.
all this complete hysteria. you can't believe how terrifying that was. then, we are told to take cover. another russian missile is in the air and the fear is what's called a double tap, hitting the same place twice. another russian annexation of ukrainian territory has been met with a now typical kyiv response. translation: the entire territory of our country will be _ liberated from this enemy. the enemy of not only ukraine but also of life itself, humanity, law and truth. russia already knows this, it feels our power. when you think about what this place was used for, along with that enormous crater, all of those point to a very deliberate targeted strike. the reasons for it
are not clear, as ever. but the devastation is plain to see. ukraine says it is once again applying tojoin nato. the alliance, however, has always been worried about causing an escalation, something russia is less concerned about. james waterhouse, bbc news, zaporizhzhia. police in afghanistan say 20 people, most of— police in afghanistan say 20 people, most 0�* , ., ., ., , most of them young women, have been wounded and — most of them young women, have been wounded and killed _ most of them young women, have been wounded and killed in _ most of them young women, have been wounded and killed in a _ most of them young women, have been wounded and killed in a suicide - wounded and killed in a suicide bombing in kabul. the attack happened in kabul�*s neighbourhood. students had been sitting mock university entrance exams when the explosions happened. many of those living in the area are from a minority that's been targeted in past attacks. no group has yet said they are behind the blast. social media did contribute to the death of 14—year—old molly russell who took her own life five years ago — that's
the conclusion of a coroner who said the material molly was looking at online "shouldn't have been available for a child to see". the inquest heard how she'd viewed thousands of posts online relating to depression, self—harm, and suicide before her death. her father has called on social media companies to tackle the "toxic culture" and prioritise the safety of young people. the prince of wales has reacted to the corner�*s ruling in molly's case. in a tweet, he said... joining me now is to ged flynn, who is the chief executive of papyrus, a charity specialising in prevention of young suicide. thank you very much forjoining us.

tech giants or social media giants, but i think the only giant, as i said earlier in the press conference, in today's hearing was ian russell and his family, who have tenaciously and doggedly pursued data which nobody should have to fight for in trying to answer one of the most basic questions, which is, "how did my child come to be dead?" that is something that many parents wonder about, that is something that many parents wonderabout, how that is something that many parents wonder about, how do you police what your children are able to view online? and have any answers come up in the research and the work that you've done into how this can be handled? . _ , .,, ., handled? papyrus was founded 25 ears a . o handled? papyrus was founded 25 years ago this _ handled? papyrus was founded 25 years ago this year, _ handled? papyrus was founded 25 years ago this year, and - handled? papyrus was founded 25 years ago this year, and it - handled? papyrus was founded 25 years ago this year, and it was - years ago this year, and it was founded because parents didn't want to say, "let's put together a bereavement support group," but rather to transform, through the
lessons learned from their loss of their sons and daughters, that tragedy transforming to prevent future deaths. and i think that something each of us can play a part in, not waiting for a tragedy like molly's, but actually engaging in conversation. so we offer a helpline and training, but we also go to schools and talk to teachers who are really keen to know how to approach something which is often deemed to be off limits. the reality is we speak of evidence and research, but the global evidence suggests i'm right to say that if we ask a person who is struggling if suicide is on their mind... irate who is struggling if suicide is on their mind. . ._ who is struggling if suicide is on their mind... we have to leave it there but — their mind... we have to leave it there but thank _ their mind... we have to leave it there but thank you _ their mind... we have to leave it there but thank you very - their mind... we have to leave it there but thank you very much. l now time for sport.

that's really representative of what we showed. there's room for improvement but not the worst. the nfl team, the miami dolphins, have been heavily criticised after one of their players was treated for concussion during a game overnight, just four days after he'd been evaluated for concussion in another match. the nfl players association is investigating a potential protocol violation. he was brought down in the first half against the cincinnati bengals last night, hitting his head heavily and instantly showing signs of a head injury. he was treated on the field for around ten minutes before being taken to hospital where a concussion was confirmed, but he was later discharged. all funds deny they took a risk with his welfare —— dolphins deny. a risk with his welfare -- dolphins den . ., , , , a risk with his welfare -- dolphins den. ., ,, ., ., deny. the whole process for what ha--ened deny. the whole process for what happened on _ deny. the whole process for what happened on the _ deny. the whole process for what happened on the bills _ deny. the whole process for what happened on the bills game - deny. the whole process for what happened on the bills game was l deny. the whole process for what i happened on the bills game was he was evaluated for a head injury immediately. that's what we brought

has been arrested. the breaking news from burkina faso saying the government has been dissolved. stay with us. good evening. friday brought us a pretty wet, windy, and unsettled end to the working week. it's been a fairly unsettled week, actually. this was the picture in perth a little bit earlier on in the day — some big shower clouds around there. and as we head through the rest of this evening and overnight, the main band of rain will start to clear away, the winds will ease a little bit, but we'll still have some blustery showers continuing through the night too. so here's the weather front that brought that rain on friday. that's just going to be lingering in the southeast over the next few hours, and then further showers just piling in across northern and western parts of the uk. but fewer showers further south, and towards eastern areas, mostly dry with long, clear spells. once that rain clears away, we should have clearer and drier conditions towards the southeast of england, for instance. but temperatures for many of us remaining in double figures,
just dropping into single figures for parts of northern england and eastern scotland, for instance, as well. now, through the day tomorrow, more sunshine than we've seen today and drier conditions, but not dry everywhere, because we've still got a westerly breeze driving in a few showers to northern ireland and scotland. could be the odd heavy one, perhaps the odd rumble of thunder in the far northwest. just the odd one for western parts of england and wales, but drier in the east and winds not as strong as recent days, but still gusts of perhaps 30—a0 mph. so, a noticeable breeze coming in from the west. temperatures a touch warmer than in recent days, 19 or possibly 20 in the southeast, but typically the mid—to—high teens further north. into the evening and overnight, as we head through into sunday now, still some showers in the far northwest. clear skies elsewhere, but then this next area of cloud and rain moves in from the southwest to start off your sunday morning. so this feature here is a waving weather front which is going to dominate sunday's weather for some of us in the south. some uncertainty about just how far north the wave on that weather front gets, where exactly is going to see the rainfall, but it looks most likely on sunday for parts of southern england and south wales.
and it is, of course, the london marathon sunday, so we could well see a bit of rain. if you're running in the marathon or if you're going to spectate, you may well just want to be prepared for a little bit of wet weather around. but for the rest of the uk, a lot of dry weather. a few showers across the far northwest, and it looks like rain so in the sunny spells, top temperatures between about 14—17 celsius for most of us on sunday. then it looks like higher pressure holds on as we head through monday and tuesday towards the south. drier and warmer weather on the way. more showers to come, though, further north. bye— bye.
this is bbc world news. the headlines... a concert in moscow's red square as president putin tells the invited audience, "victory will be ours." the west has announced more sanctions in response. presidents and linsky applies for the military alliance and says ukraine won't negotiate as long as vladimir putin is in power. hurricane ian makes landfall in south carolina after it hit florida earlier this week, causing severe devastation. and in brazil, the first round of the presidential election is coming up on sunday. it's a vote billed as brazil's most important one since the country returned to democracy in 1989.
