minister held regular friday drinks parties during karone of ours locked arms. according to report by the daily met mirror newspaper for us, johnson's office already apologized to the queen for one such gathering, a downing street which happened on the eve of her husband, prince phillips funeral. last year. on wednesday, johnson apologized in parliament for attending another drinks event. in may of 2020, the opposition, and some in johnson's own party, a calling for the prime minister to resign the johnson. as this, he thought he was attending a work event. a senior civil servant is investigating the matter, and the findings are expected next week. ah, public opinion appears to be turning against johnson, but some people are at least having fun with a flash mall. the party in johnson lookalikes turned up the gates of downing street on friday,
11:07 am
100 percent. here the apology was half hearted. it even seemed to intimate. in his mind, he seemed to believe that perhaps the rules were not correct and the guy that was was fired, which is your name conceivable, cody and demick of what this government are about, what they believe in how they treat the general public. god knows what else goes in that place. so i'm no surprise the talk. what i'm surprised is that this guy is still hanging on to power despite old is known to think that it's been getting up to. i think it's, it's absolutely disgusting that somebody who is supposed to be a liter leads by breaking their own rules. i think it has to be honest. it's contemptible that he would. he would tell you that the idea was if you told bryce impala which he's been found out to do, you should rejoin every one they said, you put your mom, have her distance and all sure hand, if he's doing all that and he's in his garden, i feel it's okay,
11:08 am
the oh make mistakes, but they have to really make sure that they say, sorry, the right way to people and i both apologize is wrong, but not a disaster. the barker has more on what this could mean for bars. johnson's future, i don't think we can underestimates the kind of political damage this might do to boys johnson in the long run. he's a man who's been able to dodge scandal in the past. but this just doesn't simply look as if it's got a go away. a short notice he's hunkering down one of his family members. we don't know which one is tested, positive. gov it. which means that he has a pretty good reason to not be in front of cameras defending his position. but the number of voice is clamoring for him. to resign is growing. notice from opposition, m p. 's, not just from his critics, but also from members of his own political party and a 15 percent of those conservative and peace table letters of no confidence.
11:09 am
embarrassed johnson that he'll be out. it will kickstart a leadership contest, but the majority of conservative and peace, all waiting for the results of a very, very important inquiry into misconduct by boss johnson and his staff over the course of the pandemic. we're expecting the results of that soon and that may influence exactly what conservative m. p. 's choose to do. next. ma hussain is a former chief press officer at 10 downing street. he claims how an investigation into the gatherings might plant a drip drip of different revelations, different parties, so many parties. so many of the allegations and the prime minister's efforts to apologize. part of the apologize i would say trying to live under this just haven't worked because every day feels about you getting more and more you have
11:10 am
this really embarrassing situation where number 10, that triple chose to buckingham palace as well. so in terms of where this is coming from, it feels to me that this happened a long time ago. people have known about this for a while and because we have this report as feasible, 7th grade coming out expect next week or so. a few people, a probably bit worried about what that's going to say will be a junior member of socket blame for something. and therefore all the things now be exposed that actually highlight what really happened. so when it is initial apology to the commons, a few days ago, there was a look to, i'm sorry for the perception, or i'm sorry if people and the focus that way. but this was a work event. this was within the rules. i don't think that really washes, i don't think people really take the face value and it seems,
11:11 am
even though this report is not out yet, and it's meant to be independent, the lots of breach paying around what the report like he say we heard yesterday that it would find any allegations of criminality. weren't necessarily apportion blame. it will look into a bit of detail as to why things happen and maybe make some recommendations, but also the bowl a few raise that she's not really that judgment on the prime minister. she's still a civil servant at the end of the day. so what happens off the report is by the unknown, the u. s. excuse russia, of planning a so called folk flag operation in eastern ukraine in an attempt to create an excuse for an invasion bend on, says as evidence russian agents might already be in the country to carry out acts of sabotage and then blame ukraine for them. the kremlin spokesman is dismissed reporters unfolded my kind of report after
11:12 am
a week of negotiation. busy in 3 european cities, there are no signs of any diplomatic breakthrough. and a warning from the white house that the ukraine crisis could escalate even further . with a claim that russia is planning to create a pretext for an invasion, we have information that indicates rush has already pre positioned a group of operatives to conduct a false flag operation in eastern ukraine. the operatives are trained in urban warfare and using explosives to carry out acts of sabotage against russia's own proxy forces. really delegation was echoed. ready by the u. s. defense department, we already have in addition, indications that russian influence actors are already starting to already starting to fabricate ukrainian provocations that in both state and social media to again try to justify in advance some sort of
11:13 am
pretext for incursion. claims to that, russia was behind a cyber attack on ukrainian government websites that shut them down for a period of time. the words be afraid and fear the worst. we're also projected on several official sites. but any scheduled annual news conference, the russian foreign minister dismissed the allegations and maintain that it was the us and its allies that was stalling the diplomatic process by not responding to russia's demand that nato membership for ukraine be taken off the table. as you say, we are waiting for the written reaction. we have reasons to believe that our partners have understood the necessity to react quickly precisely and on paper. and they have understood that we are not going to wait forever. but of course, there are plans to drag it on and on. the us senate is continuing to debate imposing sanctions on russia. and while there's bipartisan agreement on the need
11:14 am
for strong action, there's disagreement about the details. the bill is not passed. democrats rejected the proposal by republican senator ted cruz to sanction a gas pipeline from russia to germany. probably every single one of us in this chamber agrees that the united states must be strong and confronting potent and his destabilizing tactics in eastern europe and in ukraine. but my colleagues as my colleagues made clear this morning, senator cruz his bill in our opinion, is the wrong answer at this time to deter a president. putin's aggression. the white house insists that sanctions against russia should not impact on allies like germany. walking a tightrope as it attempts to define what form sanctions should take. my kind of ultra 0, washington. still ahead on al jazeera, the netherlands is easy, locked our measures to spine. according to the highest number of daily coven 90 factions will tell you why they fled wars, poverty,

11:18 am
jerry lockdown are emerging. the daily mirror says weekly drinks gatherings took place. a senior government civil servant is investigating the matter. the u. s. is accused russia of planning a so called false flag operation, east and ukraine, in an attempt to create an excuse for an invasion. russia says the claims are on found that the netherlands has reported its highest number of daily cove at 19 infections. the government announced it will ease lockdown measures after pressure from businesses. the dance locked down in place since december was the strictest in europe said parson reports from balkan berg. the tourist town falcon berg has come back to life. local businesses protesting against the government love down by opening their door to sales while one. this is all here long. it has been really difficult to be in the situation for a long time, not only own, but all business owners, museums, and cinemas have to pay the price. and for us,

11:20 am
just glutamate. what's going to do, what we are doing now is taking a very big step, taking a risk. i think it's a responsible risk. in the next 10 days, we will get that clear what we can learn from abroad. and what we can also learn from here in the netherlands. but the government is wanting that the mac, ron peak, is yet to come and will likely paralyze parts of society and add to the growing number of death that madeline. so high numbers of excess mortality in the past few months compared to other european nations. and some of those definitely could have been prevented. not all of them during a pandemic, of course, but some probably could have been prevented either by introducing measures earlier . so infections would have been prevented, or we could have started the booster campaign earlier as other countries did. while the government has caved in to public pressure by partially lifting lockdown measures. it's now hoping the decision won't cause the hospitals to be flooded. once again, step, fasten else's era,
