10:01 pm
and more than half of ukraine's children displaced by war millions have been forced to flee. some have lost not just their homes, but their families as well. ah, am abby cor abbas and welcome to the program? ukrainian president vladimir zalinski has called for urgent action from the united nations over alleged russian war crimes. he addressed a meeting of the un security council after evidence emerged of what appeared to be a deliberate mass killing of civilians by russian troops in the city of boucher outside the ukrainian capital. only a day after returning from butcher ukrainian president to lensky, addressed the killings in front of the u. n. boy e. so the russian military search for him purposely killed any one who served our country. they shot and killed women
10:02 pm
outside their houses when they just tried to call some one who was alive. they killed entire families, adults and children, and they try to burn the bodies. smalley, eula, so lensky said russia must be held accountable for its actions in ukraine. he questioned the inability of the security council to punish russia due to must coast veto power, the ro yoga. but we are dealing with a state that is turning the un security council veto into the right to die. this undermines the whole architecture of global security. it allows them to go unpunished, so they are destroying everything they can. now when you best bet, the ukranian president called on the united nations to act immediately. stressing that what happened to him, boucher is only one example of frosh and atrocities are correspond. alexandra phenomena wasn't boucher earlier today and she sent us this assessment of
10:03 pm
the situation there. russian tanks gutted by fire at the roadside bodies of civilians lying in backyards and in the middle of it, traumatize residents grappling with their own horrific stories. that is what we saw in butcher today. we're ukrainian forces us still busy searching for mines left there by the russian army in good shot russian soldiers stands accused of terrible war crimes. witnesses speak of summary executions? civilians killed at will. the ukrainian government is urging international experts to come to butcher to investigate. they hope. what happened there will be a turning point in the international response to the war. from or on the story rejoined by mads and denies. he's a professor of law at the university of oslo and the institute of legal studies
10:04 pm
professor, welcome to the program. now we're seeing the devastating images out of which our president zalinski spoke directly to the un for the 1st time. since the start of this full scale invasion and he wants action now, what can the un do aside from naming and shaming russia? when it comes to binding measures in the war and peace situations, the authorities with the security council and the security council are to pass the resolution of passing any of these meshes. have to have a majority, which includes all the 5 permanent members or which russia is one, which means that russia can be 2 and your solution. and this is very similar to the discussion we have today about the insufficiency of the security
10:05 pm
council is similar to discussion. we had around 20012002. and when the united, when the united states wanted the resolution allowing or demanding the national will be rock, we don't have government. the security council is the best. we can not act without all the permanent 5 members of the security council agreeing, or at least not the 2. and that's, of course, russia, united states is the united kingdom it's, it's france and it is china today, the people's republic of china. now it's the best we've got the un security council, the landscape calling for a form of that council to not let permanent member russia go unpunished. there have been calls for such reform before. could this war now be the impetus to push for that change? perhaps some kind of mechanism to override a veto with enough support from member nations. i think that we have to take any
10:06 pm
opportunity to reforming the meeting is strengthened the united nations and indeed the security council. however, it's not very likely that countries which today won't action against russia, that they would accept that they themselves should be subjected to any override. and that's the problem that the international lawyers can't just decide. something for those who you want to punish or for your enemies. you then have to take all them how to litigations and i think that is very difficult. however, with the security council today and the moment in the united kingdom and, and from our security council members with the seat and the, and the, and the return. it could be that the should be a seat for the you could be one of the seats. she go to brazil or to
10:07 pm
a to, to india. one of the bigger african states. but they saw there's other misuse where you may have. ready i do not see it is realistic that you will have that he can do way with it or that you could have an override us as, as you mentioned, not if the said been normal collegiate body, the country it, which is the majority that wants to concede the sanctions against would be conflict that couldn't, couldn't sit in the security council. we don't have such euro and it's not in russia. i think it pretty clearly. it is not something i think it's absolutely clear. i'm afraid that the big countries like the us will not accept neither accept doing away with the or introducing override us. as you say, i'm afraid we are not getting any clues to to government,
10:08 pm
but if we can use what you did to reform and improve. absolutely, excellent, but do not throw away the list we have in terms of the national mechanism for dealing with with war and peace, which is the security council as we have it, it's better than if the alternative is nothing. it is clearly better and still has its use as professor mads and the not in oslo. thank you very much. while russian forces have left the cave region, moscow is mounting new attacks in the east. russia has said its focus is now on taking control of the don bass region and key eastern cities. i. com. a tourist ukrainian officials warned that moscow is trying to encircle its forces in the area and say they expect heavy fighting ahead. trying to reach safety ahead of the expected russian offensive. here in crown, matos can ukraine's east internet's region residence, awaiting unpacked roads and squeezing on to full trains. ukrainian officials are

10:10 pm
offensive operations to surround ukrainian troops and capture the city of harkey. them credit, while russia's efforts to take, the city have made little progress since their invasion began. it remains to be seen where the hawkins defenders can hold on as moscow brings even more fools to bear. now some refugees from the besieged, ukrainian city of mario full, have managed to escape the violence, but they're not in another part of ukraine. instead, they have been brought to russia by kremlin back troops. they're now in the city of toggle rogue in the south west of russia, and they said they were given no choice. technically there arriving into enemy territory. but for these ukrainians coming into tagano rogue in southern russia, any places better than their hometown? muddy hooper opened it. it could a theater that were dead bodies everywhere. a city no longer exist. i thought as no way they're just going to leave us here. but they simply forgot about us. no water

10:15 pm
tens of thousands are trying to escape war. many of them children ought to yeomans his mother and sister have just arrived in warsaw, poland. he wanted to leave the ukrainian capital, keith, because of the fighting. what he knew, i kimball. i was very, very scary. i said to my mother, let's go to poland when she talked it over with my father and we moved to poland lee and came here. one, you breo honey for those of us the un children's agency. unicef estimates that almost 4000000 ukranian children have so far been displaced because of the wall. while most are accompanied by members of their family. others have been sent away on their own. malesky would have been up for you 2 weeks ago. my child traveled from keith to france, marcia, and now we are going to see the child. sorry, have

10:17 pm
in blood. she will live currently. europe hasn't seen anything like this since the 2nd world war. millions of lives turned upside down, creating a generation of traumatized children. let's get more on this story from amanda bride and she's the global head of child protection policy and advocacy at save the children. welcome to the show. now you just come back from ukraine. what kind of impact is this war having on children there right now? yeah, thanks very much for having me. i mean there's no safe place for children and ukraine for, for those in cities like if it's marion call, explosive weapons, have devastated vital infrastructure. so children and their families are struggling to get food. he'd be homes, find safety. i was in the west of ukraine in the event and then traveled on south. and it's me, they're not the same intensity as we're seeing in the east,
10:18 pm
but people are tired. hotels booked out. alarms going off daily, and we're going down into the basis of the hotels with young families and the children to really, really challenging to see how this war has displaced more than half of ukraine's children. some 1800000 are now refugees. as we saw that reports on have flood with their parents, but some have fled unaccompanied. talk to us about the fears and dangers of child smuggling and a chaotic situation like this. sure, i mean children who are separated and unaccompanied or significantly increased risk of violence, exploitation trafficking, and abuse. the risks also increase at border crossings and trends at points where there may be confusing to find directions that are looking for assistance and a lot of unfettered volunteers or individuals where it's not necessarily safe for, for children to be getting that assistance from. and it's been very difficult to
10:19 pm
track how many children there are and where they're heading off to. so there's a lot of concern as to where these children are ending up if they're able to access services, safety in education, and support that they need. what kind of mechanisms are in place to help these children to help keep them safe? or is that growing increasingly difficult, given the nature of the conflict? i mean, the numbers were so high in the early days after the 24th of february, that was very difficult to track with the huge numbers flying across the border efforts. and now being made to be coordinating between human agencies and in g o z . like say the children, as well as the authorities at border crossing points to, to set up a registration mechanism. so you can identify the vulnerable children coming across and have them referred to child protection and other services where we're lacky and
10:20 pm
that some of these neighboring countries have very strong child protection services . so key for this mechanism is to be identifying those children and then making sure that they are linked up to get that support that they need. amanda bryden of saved the children. thank you very much for your time. one of ukraine's neighbors, moldova is one of the poorest countries in europe, but it has taken and hundreds of thousands of ukrainians fleeing the war. moldova prime minister was at a donor conference here in berlin to day, calling for more international support to help with the new arrivals, germany, friends, and romania along with other donor countries, have now agreed to almost 660000000 euros in aid from moldova. the conference is to be the beginning of long term support for moldova with 40 nations taking part. germany has pledged an immediate loan of 50000000 euros and says more than 659000000 euros have been promised in loans, budget support,
10:21 pm
and other financial assistance. if i'll finish no, i long. we don't need to just take a deep breath. we need a long collective breath. that's because we know that in the end it's not just about moldova, it's not just about ukraine. it's about europe and about our collective freedom, summer sy, height, it's also not just about money. moldova is supposed to get help managing its borders, and more flights or plan to fly out 12000 ukrainian refugees from old dover to other countries. and there's another big challenge securing alternative energy sources. we are the only country in europe, the gas imports of which are a 100 percent dependent on one source. and that is gastro. poland used the conference to call for an immediate import, been on gas and oil from russia. that was also a barb aimed at germany. good and via the rebel up there. are we discussing whether
