7:14 pm
of civilians, protection of aid workers, protection of health facilities and so on. but what's different is in the version that we just heard, what supported by the ukrainians that was drafted by nato allies, france and mexico in the general assembly, a resolution that specifically points the finger at russia as the source of the humanitarian catastrophe unfolding in ukraine. dad is what the neo align countries in ukraine are hoping to get out of the general assembly a clear message. not only does there need to be humanitarian access, but russia needs to stop their assault. in order for that to happen, russia saying this is politically motivated, they of course, continue to maintain that they are, they are to protect a russian back separatist in the east that they are not targeting civilians. that in fact it's the ukrainians that are using civilians as human shields. and so they
7:15 pm
have their own version that they want to submit into the security council that they say is less political and more focused on humanitarian aid. and then there's another version in the general assembly that's submitted by south africa, which is attempting to find some common ground between the superpowers on both sides of this debate. but again, focus on the humanitarian situation. they don't call out russia in their draft, but they do call for an immediate cessation of hostilities. so all of this swirling around lots of discussions behind the scenes, lots of speeches in front of the cameras as these 3 competing resolutions make their way through the process here. chris in. thank you very much, kristen. let me live at the united nations. still ahead on al jazeera, ah, we'll be looking at how the news and she lankin steak to the 3 sides. they struggle with one way, prices for food and fuel. ah,
