in discussions around this conflict, but i want to pick out another headline we heard from president biden yesterday at this flurry of summits and meetings and brussels, where he said he wanted to pursue kicking russia out of the g. 20. tell us more about that. what that would mean and, and what opposition? there might be. yes. first of all it's there would be a position. the g 20 includes china. and as we have seen in all of the united nations general, assembly votes that have been taken at china. either abstains or even votes against . so i think very unlikely that china would go along with such a move. but the move clearly would be a symbolic in the sense that it would further isolate russia and in that sense it biden also said yesterday in response to a question at one of his press conferences that when we sanction russia, we're not looking simply to deter it. in the short term, we are essentially declaring these are our norms and they don't and violations
10:01 am
a don't occur with impunity. violations will be sanctioned, punished. and i think that's very much what this suggestion is about to say to russia. you start a war. you are not any longer. a member of this illustrious club. yeah, indeed. but we are still waiting for that press conference. melinda, we've been talking about this flurry of activity that there was in brussels yesterday with the back to back meetings of the of nato, the g 7, and e. u. a leader is summit as well. let's take a look back at our recap now of what exactly happened on thursday. the day began at nato's headquarters, where beyond the hand shakes photo ops and display of unity. the 30 leaders of the
10:02 am
trans atlantic alliance also reaffirmed their support for ukraine. to day alida is also agreed to provide further support to ukraine, helping to uphold their from a meant to right to self defense allies or also equipping ukraine with significant military supplies into the anted tank. an air defense systems on drones which are proving highly effective. as well as substantial financial and humanitarian aid for moscow, they promised more punishment and isolation off to nato. it was the g 7 whose leaders announced that they'll restrict the russian central banks use of gold, major wheat producers, canada and the u. s. said they would increase exports to try to minimize the looming global food security crisis caused by russia's invasion of ukraine. then
10:03 am
came the e u summit. e leaders did agree a deal with biden to buy more liquefied natural gas from the u. s. we will present um a newer chapter in our energy partnership. it is about additional ellen g from the united states for the european union of us replacing the russian. ellen g we have so far an important step forward. 1000 kilometers away from the talks. the war raged on in ukraine. from the capital cave war valorem zalinski sent this message to the world. the war continues, the x off to her or against peaceful people go on one miles already. that long, it breaks my heart, heart of all you brains, and every free person on the planet. that's why i ask you to stand against the war . but back in brussels,
10:04 am
every one knows. it will take more than solidarity to bring europe's worst crisis since world war 2. to an end. let's go back to brussels, our bureau chief there, alexander and phenomena standing by far as high. alexander, we are still waiting for that press conference to begin, but we just heard there that everyone is clear. it's not going to take just solid charity to, to help ukraine here. so take us through what was actually decided yesterday what came out of the flurry of action and brussels. so what we saw yesterday was a really remarkable day fact that all the 3 summits took place on one day he in brussels, wasa, remarkable, and some would even say it was a historic day. and we, so ne, to leaders a promising to provide more assistance to ukraine, more f weapons to defend their country. they were warning karesha against
10:05 am
any use of chemical or biological weapons. and they also approved a massive 3 enforcement of nato forces on the eastern flank than there was $37.00 meeting with them saying that they owe would hamper any efforts to circumvent uh, western sanctions. and then the european leaders here again coming together with the you as president, and they also of the cold out rush hour for what they say were a war war criminal acts. and then they also promised to help ukraine rebuild a country. however, when we speak about a concrete outcome would have to say that there was a not too much of it. so i have of course, from the ukraine and prospective they are not satisfied because nato is so saying no to a no fly zone over ukraine. and the european leaders have made it clear that they are rebuffing the ukraine and pledge for
10:06 am
a fast track your membership for now. okay, thank you're alexandra and we see the press conference here is just beginning with the u. s. presidential by the so let's cut right to those pictures. first, coming together to reduce your penis on russian energy partners issued rushes energy resources, of course i manipulated neighbors. and so, as yours is yours, the proffers the driver's war machine last were this morning by announced the united states had been all in portia, russian energy making clear the people would not be part of subsidizing tunes, brutal, unjustified war against people who claim at the time i noted that we were able to take a step when others could not because united states as a net export or energy. the strong domestic industry. and the united states welcomed the european news powerful statement. early this month,

10:08 am
accomplish this, the european commission is going to work with the member states to store gas across the continent, to bill more infrastructure to receive l n g and take steps to increase the efficiency of gas. this build out this build out will occur in a way that consist is consistent with not in conflict with the 0 net 0 climate goal we ship with that we're shooting for. it's going to take some time to adjust gas supply chains and infrastructure that is built the last decade before for the last decade. so we're going to have to make sure the families in europe can get through this winter. and the next, while we're building the infrastructure for a diversified, resilient, and clean energy future. at the same time, this crisis also presents an opportunity to catalyst a catalyst will drive the investments we need to double down on our clean energy goals and accelerate progress toward our net 0 emissions future. that's the 2nd
