5:00 pm
cherished to try and find a humanitarian ceasefire in ukraine. he travelled to moscow old reading the last few days. he's going to travel to ukraine in the coming days to tryin broker that cease fire. and he also said we have a long road ahead of us. another remarkable statement that which us gives you an idea of how very difficult it will be to try and broker that sci fi and bring peace to suit to ukraine and end all those atrocities that mr. salenti was referring to. that was a yeah, i stood up almost because he said that after meeting with officials in moscow, you know, it gave us an idea that this is going to be probably a protracted war. and the ramifications, obviously, 1st and foremost for ukraine, but for the overall world will be massive, especially, you know, people being directly impacted a world away from this war when it comes to food supply. but obviously the goal is to avoid vis from becoming a protracted conflict. the goal is obviously to try and find
5:01 pm
a permanent solution to this war, a permanent compromise based on negotiations on dialogue on diplomacy. and that's the reason why mister griffith's traveled to moscow met with mister lover of why this also traveling to ukraine to try and find that scenario where a compromise can be found that humanitarian ceasefire. but there is obviously a potential, there is obviously some risk that this could end up being a protracted conflict. that would be no one's benefit because as you mentioned, and also by the way as antonio terrace himself mentioned, this is a conflict that goes well beyond ukraine's borders. it is a conflict that is affecting the entire world. and in particular, also developing nations are particularly affected by the economic impact of the current situation in ukraine by those sanctions, by the whole ramifications of this war. so we're talking here not only about a war in ukraine, we're talking here about a conflict that goes well beyond ukraine on that. something that mr. gutierrez in
5:02 pm
his inaugural remarks clearly stated, this is a war that could take a long time to heal. and mrs. lansky ukrainian president, he called out russian propaganda um and has called for accountability. he took just a little bit more about that because how difficult will it be now? he has ahead of this security council meeting said we have no option, but to talk to mr. brewton and, and to rush essentially to hopefully bring an end to this war. but at the same time he's asking for, you know, accountability for what's happening in places like. gotcha. and you have different versions of what happened in boucher something that we've seen also in the last few days. we have the ukranian leader specifically referring to his version of that criticizing very strongly. russia showing evidence of what he says, a russian atrocities on the other side of the story, we have russian officials, time and time, again, denying that version saying that it's basically an anti russian staged publication,
5:03 pm
as we heard from russian officials. that something that they've said, or a national level, for example, the ambassador here, when he spoke to the german foreign ministry, we've also heard that from the russian foreign ministry itself stressing their point of view, presenting what they say are evidence that by the way, have been debunked by an international investigations already to a large extent. so bringing those different versions to the table and making sure that a compromise can be found. is probably what mr. griffith, the under secretary general for humanitarian affairs referred to. when he said that we still have a long road ahead of us to try and find peace in ukraine. it will be a very difficult challenge. but it's one that he stressed in the name of the united nations that the certainly going to try and achieve in conclusion and final thoughts from you thomas. it, i believe it was the anthony with that is who said this war has also damaged europe . secure. 30 structure and it will take
5:04 pm
a long time to repair that. absolutely. this is just as i was mentioning, is not something that refers only to the situation on the ground in ukraine. we've seen so many changes too. how different countries react to this situation, how different countries including germany, for example, positioning themselves, that the consequence is the long lasting consequences of what is happening now in ukraine is something that we will be discussing for a very long time, even after we have a negotiated settlement to the current situation. this is something that will take a long time to heal. and that's why it's so important to try and find that political solution that political settlement try and bring those different parties to the table to try and see what the specific elements could be. that could lead to piece that could avoid that idea that you mentioned of a possible protracted conflict and ukraine. thomas sparrow did have a political correspondent crate to have you with us. thank you. let's
5:05 pm
a recap her for you. we're what we just saw. ukrainian, president of a lot of years zalinski addressed the un security council, amid growing international outrage over alleged russian war crimes. mister zalinski spoke after visiting the town of boucher, where mass gray and body showing signs of torture and rape had been discovered. the ukrainian present urged the security council to seek full accountability for russian actions. ukraine. yesterday, i returned from our city of butcher, recently liberated from russian troops. not far from here. so there is not a single crime that they would not commit. they are the russian military search for and purposefully killed anyone who served to our country. they killed shot and killed women outside their houses when they just try to call someone who is alive. they killed entire families, adults and children. and they try to burn the bodies. i am addressing you on behalf
5:06 pm
of a people who honor the memory of the deceased every single day in the memory of the civilians who died who were shot and killed in the back of their head after being tortured. some of them were shot on the street. others were throwing into their wells. so they died there in suffering. they were killed in their apartments, houses, blowing up grenades. the civilians were crushed by tanks while sitting in their cars in the middle of the road underwood ukraine's presence of lamar zalinski speaking just moments ago, addressing the un security council. let's take you to the united states. now. i. d . w. washington bureau chief in his pole, has also listened to that address in as give us and the american perspective, how was his speech received? well, layla again, president lensky really knows how to read the hearts and the souls of americans.
5:07 pm
the way how he described the wall criminal, so precisely just coming back from future. so he really is very trustworthy. he brings out the real pictures the real feeling. so i'm pretty sure that again, this speeds will be highly received here. and all the networks went live. this is also not common for international events. so finally, i think it's fair to say that the majority of the americans really are paying attention to this war. and this has a lot to do with president zalinski in the way he keeps continuously putting out. are the things he saw and the drama and the horror, or his people experience every day in as the the shocking images and news coming out of future. um, what kind of effect has that had in terms of domestic pressure on the, by the administration to implement a harsher approach towards the kremlin?
5:08 pm
it really has changed her in the take, i shall say, from the american people, you know, i travelled like couple of days after the invasion has started to south carolina and talked to people they are, they're mainly we're concerned about the gas prices. that is really a huge problem here and in the united states for many on top of the high inflation . but i was like another part of the country in north dakota just last last week. and again, these images really have changed the minds. sure. people here are still concerned of the increasing prices and will be probably more so over the lot next month or so . but the image is really reached the hearts and the souls of the american people. and they care about what is going on in ukraine, and at least for the moment, they are willing to pay at least some price to fight putins war in ukraine and ines
5:09 pm
. and in conclusion, the ukranian president says that he believes more a mass graves are likely to be found in other places in the country. and we heard the nato secretary general earlier today saying probably that the same thing that mass graves will likely be found in other cities. do you think that will change the binds administration when it comes to becoming involved in this war? while they are involved, i mean they're paying lot of money. they also kind of risking some a political power, so to speak. because, i mean, he definitely biden says he puts like this issue really on top of his agenda. and he risks like criticism from the opposition on the long run. but i think there is no question that biden ever will agree on sending nato troops into ukraine. i think this is and this will remain a no go is own, but they increasing
5:10 pm

5:18 pm
strasburg, to dig up your corresponded barbara. this'll are where the new parliament has been discussing about ways to help ukrainian refugee children. barbara, what war can you tell us? what kind of help is the e u. a deliberating, thinking of to help these refugee children. if european parliament has quite a number of demands from the member states, because as incredible as may seem was regard to the tragedy unfolding in ukraine in the western part of europe, it was in the you. the creditors are circling, for instance, in the senior, has notified the commission, the refugee could commissioner, that they have found quite a number of cases where children were supposed to go to louisiana for adoption under very dubious circumstances. and they fear that sex trafficking gangs might be involved in similar single cases have been sort of known from other member states.
5:19 pm
so registration of every child that arrives in the european union, that is the 1st demand that parliamentarians make here a children cannot get lost in the cracks of the system between countries when they travel. for instance, as we heard across europe to the south of france, and also children need to be very quickly and comprehensively integrated into the local school systems so that teachers also watch over them. and social services need to get involved and check on on their well being. however, we know that the task for you to deal with this huge number of iran form 1000000 ukrainian refugees so far as really stretch services everywhere. but parliament says, you really do take care of the children and young people 1st, particularly when they're unaccompanied. otherwise, we will see further tragedies. barbara, we understand that the president of the commissioner ers of under lion and also the

5:21 pm
. because politically, the, you can not really do that much more end it militarily. they don't have an army and they can't even export a weapons to ukraine. the member states have to do that and they decide individually on their own. did abuse proper vessel reporting from the u parliament in strasburg. thank you, barbara. thank you. some refugees from the besieged, ukrainian city of mario ball, have managed to escape the violence, but they're not in another part of ukraine. is that they have been brought to russia by kremlin backed troops. they're now in the city of tag, or og in the southwest of russia, and they say they were given no choice. technically they're arriving into enemy territory. but for these ukrainians coming into a talk on the rogue in southern russia, any place is better than their hometown body who pull that up and is up. it could a theater that would dead bodies everywhere. a city no longer exists. i thought as
