2:07 pm
defensive forces that are operating in ukraine. and at the same time, we got the un deputy secretary general heading out to moscow more quick spectrum that visit well, martin griffith arrived in the russian capital on sunday and she's been meeting on monday with the russian foreign minister survey lover off. his visit is a been trying to work on a cease fire between ukraine and russia, and he will be going to ukraine later after his visit. here we understand he will be also meeting with russian defense ministry officials in an attempt to try and really bring a cease fire to the current situation. the russian for mr. circuit law also said that his country has asked for an urgent meeting of the united nations security council because the situation that has come out of at boucher is very significant
2:08 pm
and very dangerous and poses a threat to the security of the international community. he has called it a provocation, aimed at russia. the foreign ministry also issued a statement saying that their request for this urgent meeting at the security council level of the you on, has been denied by the current at presidency that is held by the british officials . and that this is what they call a, in the worse english tradition that they have denied russia requests. but that doesn't mean that they will stop. they will continue to make this demand that the officials have this meeting at the security council because they want to be able to discuss the latest developments that have come out of those cities and towns around the ukrainian capital. and they believe it is very important. and needs to be discuss at that level because the russians want to have their say on an international platform. i,
2:09 pm
thanks so much dosage of already there from moscow. now, the french president demanded micro, like most other european leaders, is calling for more sanctions against russia. in response to the war crimes allegations dash barclays in paris, she says the manual micro made it clear europe would not look the other way. well for him to present the manual micro was speaking on french radio earlier today. and he said, members of the european union, all urgently considering another round of functions on russia, particularly on things like oil and coal because of what he said is the mounting evidence of war crimes. but he says, being perpetuated by russian forces in ukraine now. micro said that, of course the things that we seen from poachers at the civilians lying in the st. executed shop. he said that those things were unspeakable. that those things were forgivable. he also spoke about the fact that the situation continues in mario pole
2:10 pm
where thousands of civilians continued to be trapped in the most terrible appalling conditions. unable to leave that 50. now for many weeks, the french have been trying to work with international agencies to try and evacuate civilians. but of course, very difficult, ongoing situation that the french president said it is absolutely imperative that european leaders work on another round of sanctions. we know that in fact, the head of the e u for policy chief, joseph burrell, has said that you need is all looking at that very urgently. they'll be looking about in the coming days. we can expect more sections from the on russia. we've also heard from other countries in the u, from spain, from poland, both using the word genocide to describe the act that they have seen that they believe are being committed by russian forces in ukraine. i'm also calling on an international investigation into these alleged war crimes. to begin immediately. germany's defense minister says the e,
2:11 pm
you must now consider banning the importation of all russian gas dominant. kane has more from berlin. what you have here is a growing recognition from the political elite here suddenly the governing parties . that what's in place right now is not enough in so far as sanctions is concerned . so different voices, again from the same party. as mrs. lambert, the defense minister, over the course, the last 24 hours had been saying that further measures are needed. so the, the general secretary, as it were, of the party yesterday evening was saying that the tap to russian gas was being tightened further. and we know that the chancellor, mister shots, over the course of the last few days in response to the scenes from boucher said that further sanctions would be necessary. we know that his colleague, the foreign minister under the annabel bought from the green party, had said substantially the same thing. so it's pretty clear that the scenes in butcher have been greeted with revulsion. not just in berlin,
2:12 pm
but also in paris. it seems. and there is a growing willingness to talk about it's much further sanctions. the key for germany at least is if they were, as it were to push this idea of absolute ban on all russian energy, there would be a very serious shortfall in the amount of gas available to all sorts of different uses. be that domestic people in their household, but also industry. and we don't know as yet how the german government would seek to address this drastic shortfall if such a band were introduced. now there's been more russian shelling of ukraine 2nd largest city. 7 people have been killed and another 12 injured i said, bank is in hockey. if this was a point of impact or the russian was i hit now is clearly a residential area. now what they fire are these small,

victory in election, overshadowed by the war a neighboring ukraine, under summons reports from budapest, food tomb for victor oberon, who likes to think of himself as the strong man of yield. his supporters are ill lay to whatever the overall thinking hunger, his voters have given their leader an overwhelming vote of confidence. i guess your name in case we look pretty good. we've never looked as good as to night. we won a huge victory from it can even be seen from the moon, but in brussels for sure. that last quit was aimed at the e you all. bam is its biggest critic from within me model for the leader of the opposition. peter, mark his i, who had brought together 6 parties in the united alliance. it was a humiliating loss, his home town, and an overall defeat for his alliance. there is no democrats in hungry,
2:24 pm
there is no free and for action, regardless of the result. only weeks ago, opinion polls showed marty's eyes on position, gaining support. the war in ukraine and oberon's close relationship with russia's president, vladimir putin appeared to be negative factors. the old man told voters they were safe with him. he wouldn't get involved in the war, nato and the e. u may be giving military support, but they will be known from hungary. and so the national assembly building in budapest remains dominated by all of them. it stands as a symbol of defiance to the liberal policies of the e u. and of all bands cooperation with russia and china for the european union. i think this will be a very happy dilemma because if that would be a landslide victory, and apparently it would be a length of lighting, sort of question, maybe posed better the existence of time. i also retiree and members, faith in the european union is really just
2:25 pm
a temporary challenge or death will be the new business as usual. on monday, a european team of observers will announce whether they view the election is free and fair. in the 2018 poll they declared it wasn't fair. amount may, will be the verdict this time opposition parties will have been telling them that problems have included limited access to the media and government induced buyers probably the majority of news outlets. and so what caused this a power, turnarounds in or bands position? it could be a number of factors inaccurate opinion polls all by claiming that the opposition wanted hungary to join the war ukraine and perhaps more than any of the others. the fact that so many people wanted a trusted strong leader at a time of crisis. andrew simmons, al jazeera budapest, now

2:28 pm
but it also wants good relations with the west. as the spires the membership of the european union, that's made its foreign policy, a difficult balancing act. serbia joined un resolution condemning the russian invasion, but so far it's refused to impose any sanctions. this window is closing, i don't think in europe, you can really have a very good relations with russia in the same time, booking or further where you integration. so he will be a really tempted to change that policy and there will be a huge pressure for me. you, our economy is actually basically completely dependent on, on you who to just hold on power seems secure for now, but his international position is more precarious. russia in the west are more divided than at any time in recent history. and for serbia, it may grow increasingly difficult to resist taking a side than monahan al jazeera. now political outsider has been elected president in costa rica,
