11:01 pm
designate gutter as a major non nato ally to reflect the important important relationship or small overdue members of the security council. i've been sitting for the 1st time to discuss the issue of a russian troop build up on ukraine's border. united states continues to accuse russia pushing ever closer to war. claims that russia is repeatedly deny the situation we're facing in europe. it's urgent and dangerous. and the stakes for ukraine and for every you and member state could not be higher rushes action strike at the very. busy heart of the un charter. in addition to military activity, we've also seen a dramatic spike in cyber attacks on ukraine in recent weeks. russian military and intelligence services are spreading this information through state on media and
11:02 pm
proxy sites. and they are attempting without any factual basis to paint ukraine and western countries as the aggressors to fabricate a pretext for attack. claudia, could you go that route because i would like to put a question to our u. s. colleagues, for sure. why did you get that figure of a 100000 troops that are deployed as you state on the russia, ukrainian water with us lose? that is not the case, but we've never cited that figure. like we've never confirmed that figure. or do you think you might, you thought was more love you still? gotcha. gotcha. it's difficult to explain why our colleagues from the u. s. and a number of other countries are actively pumping ukraine with weapons and ammunitions. and talk about this with great pride. the with was golden, diplomatic to james phase has been following events at the united nations. 2 very different narratives you heard there from the us ambassador from the russian ambassador, the russian ambassador saying there is really no cause for concern russian troops or in russian territory. not threatening anyone, and this is not
11:03 pm
a subject for the security council. the us ambassador saying this is why the security council was set up at the end of world war 2 to deal with issues like this to deal with threats to international peace and security before they become actual was. and you have the other members of the security council, some clearly on the side of the u. s. but the others, i think of the interesting ones. how does the rest of international opinion line up on this and most other countries saying that they wanted more diplomacy more talks more diplomacy? this was an issue that could they felt be sorted by diplomacy. and it's worth telling you that at the start of the meeting, russia tried to block the meeting. it said this was not a fit subject from a security council. so they called a procedural vote. and in that procedural vote, the meeting went ahead because the us got 10 votes, but there were 5 votes to by russia and china for the meeting, not to go ahead and the other 3 from gabon, kenya, and india abstaining,
11:04 pm
showing that the international community has some doubts about this issue and showing that many countries do not want to get drawn on either side on the russian side or on the nato. us side in this war of words as it is at the moment. the u. k. prime minister has been grilled by parliament after the release of a preliminary report into claims of government parties held during strict career of our locked downs. the report says they were failures of leadership and judgment within number 10, downing street and calls for a change of behavior at the heart of the british government. or is johnson apologized and promised to reshuffle staff. british police are investigating 12 gatherings. the top stories do stay with us. the news continues after our 0 correspondent to join me then if you can. why for now? i

11:19 pm

11:22 pm
latest devastation hotspot. i joined the bama chief marco v dial, as he headed into a remote region. the amazon called the middle way. my thought was something wanting to use it, but i thought they were going to the sprawling patchwork of conservation units and indigenous reserves. the middle land is now a major target for loggers and cattle. ranchers looking for new land to expand their empower ah, we flew into a remote jungle sawmill, the dolls team and clothes just weeks earlier. he wanted to show me exactly the

11:25 pm
they put themselves on a collision course with those who stood the profit from the force destruction. in this notoriously lawless corner of brazil, with some of the highest homicide rates in the country, they immediately became targets. was that club, you have them on the polar katie of interest here on monday to go with you via the cost of the $8.00 is the quantity month. i'm, if my kid not be shown on which my e u has ever jamal. but i can also give you money, a $1000.00 thoughts as monday, the to not be shown. the physical or social. my thought was do you my bed a? this is the course awesome. you follow brain, the chevy side vine board by that you didn't see i 5, there was a book. it was i movie on october 31st, 2004 mighty wrote this letter to brazil's environment minister medina silva,

11:45 pm
i may get in your way. ah, the rapid advance of cattle ranching into the amazon has helped brazil become the world's 2nd largest producer of beef and the top, exploiter brazilian beef. now stock shelves in europe. the middle east and russia. ah, but beef production is also the greatest driver of amazon rain, forest destruction. after loggers have removed the most valuable trees, the ranchers move in replacing the forest with pasture for cattle. large scale cattle ranching may of help bolster brazil's current economic boom, but it went against everything. se claudio immediate believed it ah
11:46 pm
my visit had coincided with one of the town's most important events. daniel cattle show an auction. he was a rocket beer. so, celebration of cowboy wife wilton, batista, president of the local ranchers association. and the events organizer was keen to paint a more flattering picture of the amazon farmers feel feeding. that was india because they tried to run jesus gravel carpet semester door or something. give you a key, queer, say, in san diego face, all even kidney stuff was in for the boys. yoga, a foster parent, those things, but i truly kind in the muslim standard to kind of get the human life closer to the ve, the get them. but wilma was also eager to share some thoughts on the murder of se, claudio and media is all 5 of us. and is, mice is thing for myself,

11:48 pm
tony fa we both easily fulfill need of we were headed into one of the most remote corners of the amazon along roads. it don't officially exist. any brazilians call this region. their country's wild west. a land of adventures were gunmen operate with almost total impunity. the bomb i had received a tip off that illegal loggers were at work in the rain forest. they hoped to catch them red handed before before it was a little this is luis with
11:49 pm
an employee. newby was hosting with us on a vocabulary remote affair with see one of us on a board. i'm what else can i do? businesses, you know, with the whole, the whole of them are they want to go from and i think this is very much an active camp. it's terrible conditions with these guys work here for 7 days a week, sometimes months at a time to cut the forest. but illegal logging was not the only crime being committed here. between 20052010, brazil's government free nearly 18000 modern day slaves. dirt poor migrant workers
11:50 pm
