8:02 pm
the general assembly succeeded in suspending russia from the human rights council, but perhaps not isolating them as much as ukraine's backers would have liked. we had a vote out where the u. s. was calling a calling out. russia called for this vote, accusing them of war crimes as saying it was hypocrisy for them to be on the rights council. as russia for its part described it as an attempt to destroy the human rights architecture at the united nations. and we know they lobbied member states very hard before this vote. we've seen copies of correspondence where countries were warned that it would be considered a, an unfriendly gesture if they voted against russia. here at, at the end of the day, 93 countries voted in favor of suspending russia. $24.00 were against $58.00, abstained at the united states hales at as the success and holding russia
8:03 pm
accountable. russia says it's going to quit anyways. they don't care any more. they announce it, they're quitting now. so i, at the end of the day, russia was removed from this council, but again, perhaps not as isolated as ukraine's backers would have light. okay, thank you so much. kristen salumi reporting from the united nations. ukraine is urging nato members to step up weapons supplies quickly as it prepares her a russian offensive in the east. it's for a minister demitra caliber has been holding talks with nato foreign ministers in brussels, local authorities, and the eastern law hand screens. you have urged all civilians to leave immediately . either you help us now and i'm speaking about days, not weeks or you help will come to late. an sir many people will die. many civilians will lose their homes. mania
8:04 pm
villages will be destroyed. exactly, because this help came too late. weapons are like mine you. they late, they love silence. and i, i will not be in the position to go into details. but ah, let me put this way. i have no doubt that ukraine will have weapons necessary to fight the question is de, timeline. while the head of nato says allies have agreed to strengthen support for ukraine, including the delivery of a wide range of weapons. it follows a tuesday meeting of nato foreign ministers in brussels. allies are providing a wide range of different weapon systems on both her so at arrow systems, but also modern equipment or. and i think that this distinction between offensive and defensive is a bit strange, because we speak about providing weapons to account to which is the founding itself
8:05 pm
. on the and self defense is arrive to which is enshrined in the you and shorter. so everything ukraine, thus, with the support from the dollars is defensive or u. s. sector state, anthony lincoln says, washington will not let anything stand in a way of sending more arms to ukraine. we have been individually united states and collectively as partners more than 30 countries providing to ukraine, the weapons and systems that we believe it can use most effectively. and that it needs to push back against our russian aggression. and we're not gonna let anything stand in the way of getting ukrainians what they need and what we believe can be effective. so we're looking across the board right now, not only of what we've provided and continue to provide,

8:07 pm
a long list of sanctions, of the all kinds of measures that the united states is now imposing on russia. and that has been of course, it's very delicate balancing act that we've seen here in brussels. in the last couple of days. rescue workers in ukraine are searching under the rubble of apartment blocks destroyed by russian forces it. sir. people could still be trapped under the debris and board young about 60 kilometers on the capital kiva. president say they were threatened by russian forces at gunpoint for trying to rescue survivors. ukrainian troops regained control of the town a week ago. or residence of the nearby town. a boucher has spoken of the trauma they suffered under russian bombardment. many spent more than a month in basements or shelters to escape the fighting. people are now beginning to venture out to survey the damage and re unite with their families. and ukrainian soldiers are checking for mines and other explosives, cpa,
