10:09 pm
a possible nuclear catastrophe. of the russian hill is upper asia power plant. what's happening right now is that russia has put the world on the brink of a radiation catastrophe. its effect that the russian military has turned the territory of the largest nuclear power plant in europe. does a parisian nuclear power plant into a war zone on us will through zable, newport news. our former western partners instead of condemning their ukrainian mentees are supplying them with more and more new types of weapons which reach areas which keep could not previously reach them and doing this, they are becoming accomplishes in crimes against a civilian population was when you are christians, louise, i live at the you and the new york her. so chris, in the u. n. and turkey help brokerage deal to get more grain out of ukraine in the past. what are the chances they can help to ease tensions around this upper region? nuclear plant while the u. n. has
10:10 pm
certainly been attempting to lower the temperature, focus on the humanitarian impact of the conflict, whether it's the ukrainians who have been disrupted by the fighting, are forced to leave their homes or the i impact on the international markets in terms of food, not leaving ukraine and they're continuing to focus on the humanitarian impact and what can be done to alleviate that with the black sea grain initiative. and also trying to get a team of i. e, a. inspectors into the country to address concerns about the nuclear power plant and both sides. russia and ukraine have accused each other of shelling. the united nation says that's why it's so important to get the inspectors inside of there. but i think this points to an increasingly polarized international community
10:11 pm
. we've heard the un warning about global divisions in the, in the united nations deepening. we heard african members of the security council warning about a return to the cold war era. i and i, this, the un acknowledging that at this stage, there's no end in sight to this conflict. and again, hence that is their focus on the humanitarian aspect and trying to help lower the temperatures, whether it's at zapper, asia or a surrounding food distribution occurs. and it was a pretty bleak assessment from the u. m. like the general antonio terrors wasn't it? did he show any, any sign of hope or did anyone else so any indication of a way out of his comfort? yeah, i again it, it, it really comes down to this deepening divide in the secretary general warning, but that actually it could get worse. he said the only way to lower the
10:12 pm
temperatures are intent to fix the situation globally. is to come to a peace agreement. but he and other un officials have said at this stage, there is no end in sight that there is, ah, not only an ongoing difficulty and getting food to market, but fertilizer has yet to leave russia. and while right now, there's enough food to go around. it's a problem of distribution next year. it might be an issue of their being, not enough food, unless there is more. i'd done to address that issue. and i think that's why we heard from president zalinski, the comment that it's on the territory of ukraine, that the world's future is going to be decided. okay, chris hm. so let me live with you in a new you will many things that we mentioned earlier. you, as president joe biden has announced to nearly $3000000000.00 ministry,
10:13 pm
a package for ukraine. kimberly hallett has more from the white house. not only is this the largest single package of security assistance, but it really signals a shift in terms of how the united states is supplying ukraine moving forward. because initially, the security packages has been really short term supplies in the united states was utilizing what they had on had the pentagon was really giving to ukraine. what could we should quickly and what was in stock? in other words, it was for the immediate needs weapons lead ammunition that the pentagon have on hand for the short term, but now the focus is on the medium and the long term. so the supplies will be utilized through the department of defense, long term contracts. so what we can expect that much of this will be air defense systems, our systems and munitions radar that will really allow for ukraine to really
10:14 pm
combat rushes tags. it is helicopters and really what this also signals is a shift in terms of us support. and the fact that this means that not only will the united states be supplying these weapons, but also that the united states will have a presence. this is really something that the u. s. president has said all along with the united states is in this for the long haul. what this means is that really the united states will have a true presence in europe for the foreseeable future. are i still to come on out to 0, thailand's prime minister, suspended from duty while the court considers his length of time. yeah. plus attempts wait for results and i'm going out to close the full presidential election . ah,
