12:07 am
but the bite administration was just a year ago, had pulled back on on suspending this project. because at the time biden had said that this pipeline which connects russia and germany to deliver critical natural gas from russia to germany. he said that this project had been too far along the time. well now it's completely billed. it hasn't been turned on yet. but biden's as now given hooton's actions and ukraine, he said that the russian president has given the world overwhelming incentive to distance itself from russian gas. now, while this is happening, the us treasury department is also in discussion thinking about and ready another set of sanctions. this will be in the form of export restrictions on us technology to russia. this is if russia continues to escalate in its conflict with ukraine. these are things that us technology elements that are critical for russia's computing and aerospace sectors and they could hurt yesterday. the sanctions
12:08 am
announced by the u. s. concerned financial institutions and sovereign debt. but those are things that the russian economy has been working for years to try to shore up against in increasing its currency reserve. but we're, these critical us exports for technology sectors. that is something that those sectors do rely on. and meanwhile, the pentagon spokesperson has just given another update here in washington, saying that he does believe that these russian troops about 190000 of whom are surrounding ukraine. he said they are ready to quote, ready to go. those are his words. and he said that if this full scale invasion is launched, this would be a war of choice and totally unnecessary, mary. i'm all right. thank you. hi to jo castro in washington. meanwhile, in moscow, on the day russia on as it's on force as president let him approve, has criticized the west for refusing to respond to his security demands dosage of

12:11 am
i think that common sense will prevail. says russia is always open for direct and honest dialogue that has full confidence in the military and military that will likely include a new generation of russians who have never ventured far from home, but must now prepared themselves for the possibility that they could one day be back here, just not as visitors, paying their respects to unknown soldiers. at dark and sobering thought on a day meant to remind the country of the senselessness of war. dorsey chip ari al jazeera, moscow diplomats have gathered at united nations general assembly to discuss russia's invasion of easton ukraine. rosalind jordan has more on what i ought to say. the un general assembly convening a meeting on russian actions in ukraine. nearly 90 countries signed up to me,

most of them overwhelmingly, on cave saw with their brother, a lower level russian diplomat watch, led him as the ukrainian foreign minister by begged delegates to protect both his country and the you and core principles. counselors, your governments, and your people will face painful consequences together with our government and our people. this is why we need to use this last chance for action and stop russia. where it is. it is clear that president fulton will not stop by himself for the 2nd time in 2 days. secretary general antonio good dash spoke out against moscow's behavior in eastern ukraine negotiations to say when seeing is clear, the decision of the russian federation to recognize the so called independence of with nanette scott blue on screeches and the follow up our violations of the territory integrity in soviet entity of ukraine,
12:13 am
and inconsistent with the principles of the childhood of united nations before russian ambassador of a ceiling, a benzo dismissed the calls on his country to change course, which was the benzine accused kid of posing a grave threat to international peace and security and gives them up to him in these unusual unlike you, which it is precisely because of caves, unwillingness to consider the interests of a broad swathe of its population. what is that since 2014 why crane has been at war with its own citizens? lawson who do not agree with the my van valleys and the current policy of the authorities to predictably amber, usm bassett, or london, thomas greenfield, called moscow's argument indefensible. and this is president putin's war of choice . if he chooses to escalate further, russia and russia alone will bear full responsibility for what is to come. the challenge for the diplomat. hell to resolve this crisis. this suggestion from the
12:14 am
ukrainian foreign minister. my message is simple that do not wait too long. you have to acknowledge literally every day, decisions have to be adopted. more sanctions have to be imposed. more weapons have to be supplied. more diplomatic efforts have to be undertaken. calling on countries to use their powers to try to prevent a full blown war. rosalyn jordan, elders, era at the united nations mot guarantees the director of europe and the erasure programs at freedom house. he joined us from washington, d. c. we have these reports coming in that separately does in there. don bass region of east in ukraine. ah, asking russia for help against keith. they are asking for help and specifically repelling what they describe as aggression from the ukrainian army. how is the kremlin likely to respond? this is part of a plan to deploy or to redeploy russian forces and design. that's
12:15 am
territory. i'm going to go to these 2 now recognize entities by respiration. basically what it does is it helps a lot of important, legalize the presence of russian ships in the service from, from the perspective of russian law, because suddenly now they are the invitation of a sovereign country, etc, etc. wow, wow. at the same time, you know, basically throwing away the national loss, of course, of actually everybody else is the deployment of military forces into the chart of another country. and it, does it change the existing reality on the ground, particularly in the positive territory in the dumbass region that's already on the, under the control of russian backs that protest. i mean, it's, it's in the numbers. certainly more military forces are likely coming in. i'm not
12:16 am
following that so directly, but you know, it's been 8 years rather than russian forces. you know, in this territory they were, they were hidden. they were little green man or they were hiding as, as if they were there were the forces of a separatist when in fact they were russian forces. now they can be got up and they can be there openly. i suppose you say it gives in legal political cover in order to do that. but it, these western warnings about an invasion being imminent. and the pentagon just describe the possibility of a full scale invasion of ukraine. is that likely to happen when we've had most go consistently question the accuracy of western intelligence and media coverage? and the only way for god of opposing to intimidate the world is to make it threat, credible. so of course, you know,
12:17 am
he's going to be pretty close to the border. of course he's going to be doing whatever. c anybody that is intending on using force will do in order for people to believe that that is viable. that doesn't mean he's decided. and i think you know, ross speculate and everybody has a very i think you go either way. i think it's still up to the decision of the as to what to do. but i think at the same time, you know, the whole point is to intimidate and how do you know what, what the, what to democratic societies do they don't want to use force in response to the threat of force. it's, it's, it's not, you know, it's really difficult to sit and then, you know, and, you know, sanctions, you know, are in a point important to course it's significant that russia recognize the independence of the breakaway regions. but the reality is, this is a conflict that has been going on for the past 8 years. it,
12:18 am
was it inevitable that this decoration was going to happen? it was just a question of when no, no, i think i think this is, this is something you know, this, this is, this is a new context, a new rational pressure. you know, it's because i would want something, i want something now. and i know i really don't think my belief is inevitable. but, and the question and nothing is inevitable. i mean, you could still back down, but, but the question is, is you know why, you know, 2014, but remember, you saying that they get it. you know, it is inevitable in the sense it means agreements envisaged special status for these. we can now that special think it was never defined, but certainly in moscow here that he has failed to implement its agreement because they wanted a degree of autonomy for the dumbass. right. you know,
12:19 am
the degree of autonomy for the dom boss is not a fundamental, or psychiatrist for restoration. it's not, it's not bad game. a game is, you know, is one of them are in russia. can game is. the fact is, is a viable, even even even aspirational democracy. i'm russia order is something that is a fundamental but not to russia security, but to rush to violence on power. and, you know, and if you remember in 2014, you know, it wasn't, it wasn't, you know, ukraine's aspirations for getting coverage wasn't, wasn't even part of the internet of that, that caused the crisis that resulted in, in the application of boston. and the annexation from yet, it was ukraine's decision to, to sign an agreement association with european union, which included all sorts of classes for democracy, the democracy and rights protections. that is the thing that was most threatening,
12:20 am
better, 2014. and that's what a lot of right now. thank you very much. my parents. thank you. you had the news, our life from london still ahead. we're going to look at the u sanction target games like patients in a circle and possible ramifications of that. also. we felt just you cannot achieve nothing where from the democratic republicans congress main opposition? nita wise countries still ravaged by conflicts 9 years after ally and in sport and used off a formula, one of the controversial finish to last the title re ah, india and pakistan has buried that differences for

that's now fighting financial markets with oil being pushed out to $100.00 a barrel? presumably, russia will benefit from that. russia is better think, but if it is from that, yes indeed they all go see a higher price for their oil going forward. it's sunny looks like any kind of cost they've been cut as a result of kind of damages from this kind of conflict told or going forward all being outweighed by the kind of high revenues to seeing from oil. now this doesn't mean it's not going to damage the russian economy in the long time. it is likely to have that damaging effect. so the know a catastrophic one is certainly also not one that we think is going to really impact today. and he's been really preparing for this since crimea in 2014. he has over $600000000000.00 in reserves as well. if the current punitive measures are not likely to change russia's behavior, how much further is the west like if you go it typically year or other measured?
12:43 am
now, i mean, i just, i just going to say what sort of price are they willing to pay to defend ukraine? i mean, at this point in time, the price will not extend to those options in energy market. that's certainly something that has been a clear direction from both the united states as well as europe. we all know the energy prices rising. and of course, these are democracies and democracy have to respond to the prosperity that people in a way that countries like russia do not know. that doesn't mean their own future measures . that couldn't be damaging, forcing russia out of the swift payment system that will allow them to make payments across borders and export bonds while on key technologies is also being considered. those things will damage the russian economy. there are other things that could go much further. that we haven't yet seen being suggested, we know all the gods, a lot of property in london. it's not clear why they're not being seized. that
12:44 am
children go to school across europe on top of that as well. we know the came particular london, hundreds of rational or gods with 2000000 pound visas. they could be revoked. there are certain ways to cause damage to individuals across russia. certainly make it difficult, but it doesn't look like at this point in time. it will have the same devastating effect we've seen before and in particular around, but we did impose oil sanctions, or rather president obama did. and then go that nuclear the a lot woods. i'm the u. k is notorious, isn't it for being a hub where it only galks and allies, those close the crime in are able to basically launch them money. why hasn't the government here cracked down on this? it's not really clear why that is that we, we saw some limited sanctions yesterday, a few individuals as few banks, you know, to kind of take them at their word if you like. they are saying that they will
12:45 am
impose a further satisfactions in the future, but it's really not clear at this point why it is the u. k. government is not taking a much stronger lie, and indeed the same thing can be said for kind of the why did democratic wild at this point in time that have to be a hard lie. we should be absolutely clear. this is a violation of a sovereign nation, this is war. peace depends upon, on the democratic choice choice of the crazy and people that is being overwritten by the wishes of one cause has been a terry. and of course, what this happens once it breaks down that consent to the normal that we've had remaining in place since the end of the 2nd world war driven sand. our appreciate you joining us on the news out tonight. thank you. thank you very much. now authorities in argentine are saying it could take years to recover from wildfires that have devastated northern areas. these are the active fires in the country right now in the worst it province of korean tis around 8000 square kilometers of

12:47 am
have already been destroyed and with it, livestock grains and was life. this is an area that generally sees abundant rainfall, but strong winds. lack of humanity and drought are making it easy for fire like this. when to spread all across the province on an average of around $30000.00 hector's of land are burning every day. also at risk. i 12000 hector's of marshlands in the area. isn't that where we service where it came months? i'm phoebe and another $300.00 species of birds are being affected by your fighters from brazil and other parts of the country. leguinn aside, who have come here in an effort to prevent the fires from causing even more damage . so i don't know middle, i'm on, but it is in charge of the fire fighters that have come from when a site is, you know, i'm, i know it was a lot, but the rest and the only thing we can control is nature. so you need to control
12:48 am
everything else. cody interest is lacking resources that don't have the equipment they need. they have great people, but they're not prepared. they need pickup trucks, fire fighting kids uniforms, among other things. so through and you have, you had a store of these desperate, he says he has lost almost everything he owns. most of his land was burned by the fire and like many others is currently in debt. you, joe, sometimes i don't want to continue, but i have to because what am i going to tell my family? i have a family of 60 people, 19 work with me. where's my family going to work? there's no work here. aside from this rain is crucial at this point to prevent the fires from spreading to other provinces. but heavy rainfall is not expected until march. a long wait for those involved in the daily fight against the flames. there is some cedar korean, this argentina, argentina's, emergency as
12:49 am
a sign our planet is headed to fiery future. and governments are just not prepared for the death and destruction that it could bring this according to the un environmental agency which says, climate change will spot a 30 percent rise in extreme wildfires by the middle of the century. the report also blamed farmers for clearing trees. just last year, the flames burning through the forest admitted more than 2 and a half 1000000000 tons of carbon dioxide. a recent study in this scientific journal, the lancet found the exposure to wildfire smoke. you're more than 30000 people on average every year across 43 countries. and the financial losses can be huge in the us alone. annual economic damages can amount to $347000000000.00. and from the amazon to the arctic defies of scorching paces that have never been prone to such places before. 10 christopher son is from the un environment program. he explains why the fires are going to get worse. we project that even with
12:50 am
a moderate emissions scenario. so even if we manage to curb emissions wildfire are still going to increase this is because the earth systems have a long response time and therefore it is clear that wildfires are here to stay. they are going to increase and we have to be better prepared. of course, we also need to be better prepared because we urgently need ecosystems, forests keep lance savannah as carbon stores. so when we risk that these carbon stores are going up in flames, then we lose one of our best allies in the fight against climate change, which is nature ha, solutions can help us clearly to both mitigate and adapt to climate change. but the most important message remains that we have to, urgently and quickly curb our greenhouse gas emissions globally. to add on with.
