5:05 pm
is to protect and defend allow us on that and to prevent this, sir. a conflict from escalating to a full fledge war between a nato and the i'm russia on the that's the reason why you all saw or are focused on how to manage the risk of escalation on, also to sunder care message that we are there to defend and protect all i said, not to provoke a conflict, but to prevent the conflict. and the reason why we have, or last week sir, are deployed 40000 troops on those directed to command or to the eastern part alliance, and also added more. a troops under a national command, including a more used troops in europe, and this presence is to help prevent the escalation of the conflict. so we are preventing escalation. and nate will not be at body involved in the conflict. her ne dollars for not send troops, or to build this into a ukraine. ah,

but at the same time, and we are providing support to crane in many different ways. go to a h p l to lead in my how the u. s. and secretary blinkin. i'm having approaching this week and why is on a long haul for this war and assumption? why not just do everything you can now, while russia retreats these is late to end. this war is for president to tend to pull back all his troops on to end the war and to sit down and engage in, in the serious are dramatic efforts to find the solution. ah, but we need to be a realistic and we have no indication that the press and through team hossa changed his over or overall goal and others to control ukraine onto, onto achieve
5:07 pm
a significant pinto victories on the battleground. so we don't see a rush and retreat. why we is what, what we see is that russian a regrouping i repositioning of their forces moving out of her no than ukraine, but to at the same time moving those forces to the east. and we expect a big battle in don balls a big russian offensive. and that's the reason why i wasn't so hi, dr. today, the urgency of applauding more a supporter to, to ukraine, not the source, the message of course, from a minister collabo i saw, ah, docile solution why we need to, of course, work for a quick end to this war. and that's the reason why also allah's are imposing, had he calls on a, on president putin, on the russia, that at the same time be prepared for a long hol, this war may last 4 weeks,
5:08 pm
but also months on a bill. so for years and therefore we need to prepare for the whole you may be thinking thank you so much, mr. secretary general, you mentioned a strategic concept to ad 2030 which will be narrow to map forces organizations. it's wise, it's a document, it's very, very important for georgia. what should we expect? i mean, opened or play about opened or policy about a future of as parents. and can you tell us more about a meeting with george in at 4 in the 1st me through. thank you so much. the georgia minister of foreign affairs attended the meeting today her and for me it was a pleasure to meet him and to on to talk to him about also a bilateral meeting. and i think it is important that we have close contacts with the a georgia and also the new minister of foreign affairs that demonstrate the strength
5:09 pm
and important solver, the partnership between the georgia on the, on the natal and a. and we also are working on how to further strengthen our partnership, including ah, by improving and strengthening of the packages we have all the agreed on to alpha more to the packaging through thing issues related to secure communications resilience on the cyber. so we are look into how we can throw the strength from both the political and the practical cooperation and partnership with, with the georgia. i will bring you press conferences, been given by the nato secretary, general jens salt and berg on the final day of nato. foreign ministers meeting which is being held in bras, has been a busy day in brussels, has also been a meeting of foreign ministers of the north atlantic council. that is nato plus 8 other countries. and members of g 7, a economies as well and stolen burg,
5:10 pm
they're basically giving an update on what has been discussed. seeing nato allies have been providing support to ukraine, but their main responsibility for nato is to protect natal members. he said his prevent an escalation of conflict. i'm paraphrasing, of course, what he was saying there. he said the easiest way to end the war in ukraine was for president put in to pull back, but president putin has been changing his goals. ok, let's move on. united nations general assembly is holding discussions before voting on whether russia should be suspended from the human rights cancel. the 2 thirds majority votes needed for the resolution to be adopted. russia's one country is voting in favor of it or abstaining that it's going to be considered an unfriendly gesture of let's go to kristin's to the me, add to the un there, or what is it gonna take, tristan to get this vote passed? well, as you said, 2 thirds majority of countries voting in the general assembly must approve this
5:11 pm
resolution, and that is 2 thirds of countries who vote abstentions don't count. so out of all the countries who cast their votes, 2 thirds majority would take to remove russia to suspend russia from the geneva based human rights council, whose mission is to promote and protect human rights around the world. a passed resolution in the united nations sets out that countries can be removed for gross and systemic rights violations. that is exactly what you crane and nato allies are alleging russia is guilty of. and so that is why they have brought this issue to the general assembly for a vote to day. we do expect, however, before the vote occurs to hear from a number of countries who are russia's allies, they have all signed up to speak this morning. countries like syria, the dpr k,
5:12 pm
who have voted with russia on past general assembly resolutions calling out russian aggression. other countries who've abstained as well. now coming out to speak, we presume, to help defend russia. china as well, has abstained on votes in the past, giving some cover to russia for its actions in ukraine. they are ball so signed up to speak before the vote as well. so all countries will get a chance to make their opinions herds either before or after, but the vote itself will be delayed by russian allies who have signed up to speak. and to be an interesting one, because you say china hutch abstained in the past to russia. as we were mentioning, warning, countries that do abstain that it will be regarded as an unfriendly gesture. it's going to be interesting to see how several of those countries decide to go to a. is there a sense, any sense of told that ukraine actually has the votes with it and its allies, that would actually be able to get this fast?
5:13 pm
what we know, there are at least 50 co sponsors of the resolution. and the last time the issue came up of ukraine in the general assembly, a 141 countries sided with ukraine to condemn russia's aggression. if those numbers were to come out again, only 5 voted with russia against the resolution. if we see similar turn out than, than clearly this resolution will pass. but as you say, russia has been speaking to countries in the united nations. we've seen a note that says that russia will consider it and an unfriendly gesture if countries vote to suspend it, that a gesture, that would be taken into account in bilateral relations with russia and in un activities as well. so a bit of an ominous warning from russia as countries line up to make their voices
5:14 pm
heard on the issue of human rights. and i'm in in ukraine. kosta. of course we're going to be checking in with you as we get closer to that vote for now. kristen salumi the you and thank you very much indeed. or with accusations of war crimes being exchanged regularly. no russians. foreign minister sag oliver has accused you trains also battalion of killing russian prisoners of war. there was no, we open to occur significant. we were quite positive about the talks, but now you credit negotiate as a korea to you provocations. just look what happened in the town of boucher, especially the absolute, blatant atrocities that are being recorded on video or for the nazis from the as a fighter, lou indeed with the russian prison as a full losses. also accused ukraine of putting forward a new piece proposal flouting terms is reached at a meeting in istanbul last week. last jibari has more than lunch from moscow. well, and we've been hearing from the russian foreign minister survey oliver, of who,
5:15 pm
even prior to having this meeting with of a her, any foreign minister, a issued estatements that was very unexpected. he said that the talks that are still ongoing between russia and ukraine at through a video conference format. and they reached the point last night on wednesday when the ukrainians have put forth a different proposal than the one that they agreed upon and that they put forth in is stumble on march 29th. when the ukrainian officials met with the russians, a face to face in is stumbled. now, the foreign minister saying there are a few things in the proposal by the ukrainians that are changed. that is something the russians have not agree to. one or the main things is that the issue of security guarantees that ukrainians are looking for in terms of when there is a ceasefire between the 2 countries. and number of 3rd countries would be security guarantors. that in case there is any conflict or altercation between russian
5:16 pm
forces and ukrainian ones, those guarantors would come into play and assist in trying to deescalate the tensions. now the issue here is the say, a russian form is her says, according to the initial proposal that the ukrainians put forth at the any kind of military exercises that the ukrainian army would carry out in the future with any other country would need the approval of those security guarantors that would include russia. now this new proposal that they put forth doesn't have any mention of russia as part of those at security guarantors, and that their approval would not be needed. this is something that is not acceptable to the russians. according to surg oliver of the world health organization's regional director for europe says it's working to make contingency plans as health resources are stretched in ukraine. the w a chose says it's preparing for all scenarios, including a possible chemical assault,
