start with the new reports of killings emerging around ukraine. what can you tell us about that? yeah, there is ex practitioner, here in the ukraine. the russian, both to do withdraw as the territory is taken back by ukrainian forces. they are expecting to uncover more grisly alleged atrocities we have seen in the neighboring town of p. for example, we have know that there have been bodies discovered in highly ways in gardens, in the basement. and cell is, again, allegedly, it looks like these people were some summarily executed. we are expecting from another city of but a junkie. this has been mentioned by the prosecutor general's office. here in ukraine has been the scene of another alleged atrocity, apparently worse than we have already seen in boucher. and then of course we have
11:06 am
existing battlefront all across the south of ukraine, west to billions. we know have been caught up, ukrainians alleged that they have been purposely targeted by russian forces. take my report, for example, where again is the battle has been raging for weeks now that the man says that 90 percent of the city has a literally now in ruins. the matter is also being quote to the saint that $5000.00 civilians that have lost their lives. so residents about you, paul, and people who have managed to escape from matter, you will say that there are cases of plenty to be investigated and to be prosecuted . russia claims, of course, that these are fabricated these images from boucher fabricated. but there are multiple reports now on the different international media showing satellite photographs that seem to indicate that these bodies have been in place for a number of weeks while russian forces were there. so these claims that this is
11:07 am
sudden, somehow suddenly being fabricated by ukrainian suv, arrived on the scene, does seem to be pretty thin and precedent. lensky has said, there's any war criminals will be pursued, will be prosecuted and has a promise to try to collaborate with international prosecutors to bring people to justice and rob the current president not found the very optimistic about talks with russia also been saying that's right. he says, not surprisingly after what he's witnessed in boucher that it is very hard to negotiate with a country that can do something like this. but he has said that to go see ations will still have to go ahead to try to bring this war to an end, which he wants to see ended as quickly as possible when it comes to a face to face meeting, which everybody has been talking about for weeks now, between the 2 presidents, he says, that is probably now off the table. it will be very difficult for him to sit down
11:08 am
at a table across from somebody he says, is a war criminal. later on today, tuesday's lensky will be addressing the national security council when again he will be continuing this international effort to isolate russia to make it the pariah state ostracized, by much of the international community which ukraine and president lensky has done very well. it seems thus far and ready to make rushes position on the national security council. very difficult. it is one of the 5 permanent members of the security council, a council, which was meant to guarantee security around the world guarantee, a rule based international order here being accused of war crimes, that is a very uncomfortable position for a permanent member to be and, and it does seem as though the lensky and ukraine wants to add to that discomfort as much as they can. all right,
11:09 am
thanks so much from mcbride. of all of them is that and sky is expected to address the un security council for the 1st time on tuesday. in the run up to that meeting, western and russian diplomats have traded accusations about what happened and butcher kristen salome has mall from un headquarters in new york. the united kingdom sat, a security council meeting on tuesday would focus on boucher amid growing outcry over alleged atrocities there. it'll be the 1st opportunity the security counsellors had to discuss the images that we've seen in broucher, which you've heard widely over the weekend. described both his war crimes and his genocide, so we really are facing the true reality of the appalling russian invasion of ukraine. but that wasn't soon enough for the russian ambassador who called his on press conference and accused ukraine of staging images of dead civilians. he pointed to social media video and boots as mer, smiling at the announcement of russia's troop withdrawal said to be shot on march
11:10 am
31st. a day after russians pulled out in it. there is no mention of dead civilians . from the very beginning, it has been clear that this sir, is nothing else but yet another stage pro occasion aimed at discrediting and different realizing of the russian military and leveling, political rational pressure on russia. his claims, however, were seemingly undermined by a new york times analysis of satellite images said to show the bodies present before russian troops with true ukraine has again called for an independent investigation. this is why i myself and my fellow parliamentarians, we did everything wonderful and impossible to get international journalists to woodshop either for his date of liberation. so it would be not to us saying what happened there, but it will be representatives off all the media, all over the world. respectable journalists, war journalists,

11:13 am
order to document what happened here and who is responsible. adding, they believe this was always part of the plan. the images that we see are tragic. there are shocking, but unfortunately, they're not surprising. we released information even before russia's invasion, showing that russia would engage in acts of brutality against civilians. russia has denied the allegations, but at the pentagon, expressing little doubt that they did it. i think it's fairly obvious not just to us, but to the world that russian forces are responsible for the atrocities and in boucher president. mind says there will be additional sanctions this week. he didn't go into detail, but what the ukrainians want is for every russian bank to be cut off from the swift communication system. they want a total embargo, a russian shipping. and they want to completely end the sale of russian oil, gas, and coal. now that last part has divided the alliance, the by demonstration will likely be working behind the scenes to try and figure out
