12:05 am
we can see if we can be trusted to deliver a separate and continuing police investigation means the full party gate report has not yet been published. the only question is, does anybody else have anything else my way or a detail that they could yet release into the public domain? particularly the prime minister's former advisor, dominic cummings, who has gone public over the weekend, saying that he's trying to actually remove maurice johnson from office for the moment that looks unlikely. johnson has survived countless scandals in the past. his many enemies are now eagerly awaiting the outcome of the police prob i'll d w 's. charlotte chelsea pill has more from london. the publication of this report had been built as a make or break moment for the prime minister,
12:06 am
a time off to which members of his own party would decide on his political future. now that report has now been watered down in light of the fight. there is a police investigation also ongoing. the c grier port. this as its being cool, does not go into any detail about any of the alleged gatherings in light of a request from the police not to do so. so isn't, doesn't carry the weight that it once is thought to have done full members of the prime minister's own party. they'll have to decide whether it's enough for them to gather to hand in that lattice recognizing that they don't have any confidence in the prime minister, triggering this vote of no confidence the jury is out on them. i am at the moment over whether or not that will be the case that were a number who stood up earlier today in parliament criticizing the prime minister as some have done before in public as well. namely to day to resume the former prime
12:07 am
minister. she said, the report shows that number 10 was not observing the regulations it imposed on the public. not really, as the crux of this why there's been so much anger here and i think some will decide that regardless of what, so members of the prime this is own party, do you going forward? the public has and has been making its own judgments on the prime minister. and it's returned to our stop, our top story, the un security council meeting over ukraine. let's get the latest from d, w. 's on of a salad in washington, d. c. so both united states and russia tried to make their mark to dominate this narrative. what came out of that meeting? yeah, that was certainly one of the sharpest clashes rahile of the united states or the united nations rather security council has seen in years the russian ambassador and a ben z are saying the u. s. is whipping up his tyria and then it had brought quote, unquote, pure nazis to power. there were some other bizarre hitler comparisons made there.
12:08 am
that the security council u. s. sam baset are in contrast. thomas greenfield said russia wants to fabricate a, provide text for an attack, recognition the evidence at all. so it really was a controversial debate, a fight for the public opinion really. and that was the plan of the united states to put that topic. ukraine on the world stage rayleigh and ukraine isn't a member of the security council, but it did take part in the meeting. what are the chances that we could see direct diplomacy between russia and ukraine? well today we, we saw in particular high attentions and sharp attacks rather than diplomacy. but of course, on the other hand, all conflict parties are involved were involved in that meeting. and it's the 1st time also that the security council got together on the topic of russian true built up at the ukranian border. and so the plan of the u. s. was to put that topic on
12:09 am
the world stage. and it was also clear from the start that there were no hopes, really of any formal action resulting out of that meeting. of course, russia has veto rides in a very strong position. there's also supported by china, but that was not the goal. the u. s. wanted to use the security council to gain momentum in their diplomatic efforts. and president joe biden has said that the united states will continue to push for diplomacy, but also he's ready. no matter what happens. what more do you have on that? well, there are sanctions, of course, that were already put in place years before, and they were considered ineffective. following the annexations, the annexation of crimea in 2014 and all the west, including the united states and the european union, are threatening a new level of sanctions that could reach from economic boy car to cutting off russian bangs from the financial grid from the international financial grid, also to personal sanctions against vladimir putin. then
