12:09 am
e. u on supplying ukraine with weapons. will court change the rules of the game with glitching studios, little's world? food version of this is very serious turning point, even in the policy that the, you and the west on the whole, undeniably under the united states leadership has been pursuing since the start of our special military operation road. this policy reflect and betterments and even fury in some respects. and of course, it's been determined, certainly not only by ukraine, but also by the fact that ukraine has been transformed into a foothold for completely suppressing russia and submitting russia to the global system. being built by the west of which is always kept moving closer to our borders. contrary to all promises it gave, despite the end of the cold war. and despite the warsaw pact and the soviet union's disappearance, u. s. president joe biden has told indian prime minister. no rancher modi the buying more oil from russia is not in its interest. and it could impact relations

12:11 am
geopolitically on a range of issues, not least india and russia cooperate when india has concerns about china and china is the issue that hangs over all of these discussions because the u. s. is looking to india as it has its own consent, if it's adversarial relationship with china. the last thing administration wants to do is to say anything condescending. so anything that might jeopardize the usaa relationship with india, which of course, good, well make inter get even closer to moscow. so we hear phrases. we have great comments, for example, about india talking about actually increasing its imports of russian oil, for example. and we have gen saki at the white house press briefing, saying, well, we don't think it's in india's best interest, but then adding, but now breaking any sanctions by doing that. when do we hear that? when do we hear someone from the white house, say, when the country is going against the bilateral sanctions?
12:12 am
that the us now uses the main foreign policy, cultural. we're doing best, we expect everyone else to do it. and we're going to punish anyone else who doesn't go along with it. when do we ever hear the white? i say, well, you know, these just by natural sanctions, india, you know, obviously it can do whatever it was not very often. so that's the, the geo political, those are the geopolitical stakes at play in these discussions. she every time see, they're joining me live from washington, d. c. she have thank you plenty more ahead on the new sour, including the un security council here is that rape is being used as a weapon of war in ukraine. every vote count sir manuel mccall hits the campaign trail as he prepares for a 2nd round run off against marine le pen. this multi time grand slam winner makes his long awaited returns at top level tennis found out how he got on in schools. ah,
12:13 am
no rush has been accused of a pattern of war crimes in ukraine. it's strongly denies. all allegations proving them is complicated and bringing any one to justice even more so. or one of the issues in previous cases has been securing evidence that you is giving about 8200000 to train ukrainian prosecutors to investigate. and other challenge is the lack of funding 3 e u countries of unanswered donation of 2700000 to the international criminal court, which started an active investigation less than a week after russia invaded these russian nor ukraine is a member of the i c. c, ukraine has given its approval to examine alleged atrocities, dating back to 2014. but as moscow doesn't recognize the tribunal, it's unlikely it would surrender suspects. but the i, c. c isn't the only mechanism already being used, and there are calls for the un to set up its own court of law. similar to those created for the wander. and the former yugoslavia, as well as going scrutiny on russia's actions as more mass graves are uncovered. in
12:14 am
towns its troops have occupied, there are also some allegations against ukrainian soldiers, including killing at least one prisoner of war, which the government has promised to investigate. well, the forensics team from the international commission on missing persons is going to ukraine to help identify the dead and gather information that could lay to be used in war crimes cases. their direct to general catherine bond burger joins us now from the hague in the netherlands. and catherine. thank you very much for joining us on the program. obviously, ukraine right now is an active conflict zone, but it is also effectively, sadly, a large crime scene that's correct. yes, so what, where does your team come in? how in a time of active conflict. com, a team go in to aid the ukrainians to both gather evidence but also identify people . it's not going to be easy, but we have been invited by the government of ukraine, and we have been actively trying to help cranston 2014 investigate crimes that have
12:15 am
been committed and related to missing persons cases. so the team will go in next week as an exploratory mission to see how we can help the various institutions in ukraine, from the general prosecutor's office to the ministry of interior minister health. so we're going to be looking at cases of trauma trying to see if it's possible to identify unidentified, we're remains and to start working with families of the missing who have reported missing loved ones. and of course, your organization has been identifying the dead and missing from conflicts for over 30 years. now what, what has experienced taught your organization in terms of running these kind of programs to help countries? in these situations, it's very important to work with the government. i mean, state have the responsibility to locate missing persons of to investigate their disappearances. i mean, it is unusual to work during an armed conflict,
12:16 am
but there is political will. and ukraine has set up mechanisms including a commission on the same person, legislation on missing persons and the criminal criminal procedure code. we feel is in good shape. so being able to do this with ukraine is critical of so evidence will be collected, hopefully that evidence can be provided to the i c, c, or other courts that will be conducting investigations into what's happened and then be used for criminal trial purposes. so this is important and hope it maybe there are also courts in the future, ukraine that will be doing the same thing. but the intention would be to help ukrainian authorities conduct these investigations in line with the rule of law. and to make sure that all missing persons are accounted for, whether they're ukrainian or non ukraine, and catherine and a very practical level, if i can, how do the cranium? people play a power part? how are they able to report where and bodies are?
12:17 am
how, how does that happen on the grand? well, thank you for mentioning this. i mean, obviously people are finding more to remain there aware of this. we've been watching stories about body disposal sites and bodies that have been found here. and there we know that a large number of civilians have been killed. some of them have been identified. other could be people in a legal detention. there could be people, many locations. there could be families that have been separated for sure. we know that happening. so we do have online mechanisms, so in addition to being on the ground with investigators from ukraine, we will mountain online campaign to collect data from families of the missy, including those living in ukraine and outside of ukraine. so the active engagement, the families of the missing will be absolutely essential, or anyone that has information to finding missing persons and investigated their disappearances. so this online campaign will enable us to collect data from the missing or for individuals to report the location of missing person anonymously.
12:18 am
and catherine, i believe on the scientific side, there's also a new technique technique rather that teams are using to, to make, i didn't cation easier. how does it work? well, we'd been on the front line of using dna or human identification purposes for over 25 years. since the 1st established dna laboratory capability, which is the standard capability, which is here at our headquarters in the haze, which reviews effectively in the context of the western mulkins, where d n, a is used as the 1st line of identification. so you're providing scientific, repeatable proof of the person's identity, which is important not only for families of the missing, but also for criminal trial purposes. the sciences are advancing as we understand the human genome. the, our understanding of for genetics is evolving and becoming better. so the use of the dams to dna capabilities for human identification and all the data systems will
12:19 am
be employed to help you current catherine bloomberg. they are joining us from the hague in the netherlands. catherine, thank you. you're very welcome. thank you. yeah, and security council has heard that rate is being used as quote, a weapon of war in ukraine in a session focusing on how the war has impacted women and children. the head of u. n. women has called the independent investigations into the allegations. kristen salumi has more now from the united nations women, children and the elderly make up the majority of the 11000000 ukrainians flee in conflict according to the united nations. they also filled the cremmit tourist train station and dennis russian missiles struck on friday. and i'm the same my 31 years as a humanitarian. i've rarely seen so much damage caused in so little time. the impact of the fighting on the most vulnerable civilians was presented to the united

nations security council. on monday, in just 6 weeks, nearly to nearly 2 thirds of old ukrainian children have been displaced. they have been forced to leave behind everything their homes, their school, and often to family members. families forced to split up to escape the fighting are particularly vulnerable to human trafficking and sexual abuse. according to you and experts who said accusations of sexual assault and areas held by russian forces are on the rise. we know and see and who want you to hear a voice is that violence and rape is used now as a weapon by russian made their senior pri, reports from key scholarships, oscar, and should i think his goal was reported by survivors themself. and the by the witnesses raped by a group of okay, bumps multiple times was life rental survivors, their children, their family members, in front of the family members and other people, real cases, real people,
12:21 am
real facts. russia's deputy ambassador denied the accusations when you bought nominee. but no convincing evidence has been presented for any of these crimes you think. but it's understandable that you have trampled on the presumption of innocence a long time ago. but other council members called for accountability, let me be very clear. there must be no impunity for crimes against children. in order to ensure accountability, we need to collect, analyze, and store evidence on all crimes against children. more than 140 children have been killed in ukraine with hundreds more wounded. or having lost a family member. the united nation says it can't confirm reports of women being raped, or of children being sent to russia against their families wishes. but it's calling for a full investigation and respect for international law. kristen salumi al jazeera, the united nations, shall sharif, has been sworn in as pakistan's,

12:26 am
would feel totally free to go through with the policy of self destruction that he started during his 1st term through the loss of our country, sovereignty for the benefit of a few and to the detriment of the majority. when will natasha butler reports now from the northern town of dina emmanuel macros critics often call him the president of the rich. so it's not by chance at the centrist incumbent chose dinner, one of france's poorest towns to begin his campaign for the 2nd round of the presidential election. in this part of northern france, many people say they've been left behind, legless booker, they're the middle class is also want to be heard. people listen to the working classes, but what about us on that we work, but we also struggle each month just like every one else. massage bubble mug english, who i'm not from a con. his only for the rich of. he gives millions to some people while we tighten our boats. wow, for supper. we asked a macro for his response. in english,

12:28 am
a difficult choice. muhammad nor dean campaign for the far left party, candidate shouldered, rella shaw, who came 3rd in sundays ballot. mcgrew swafford to rape the road. it's going to be very hard to make a choice between them because we have a president who cares about which people who doesn't really care about the cost of living. even if he's come here to talk about like the level on the other side of marine le pen, who does profits from people's misery, forsooth, who dinard, you know, popular shore we suffer and deny because people don't have jobs in terms of the cost of living. they've lost hope for this one. hope is something macros says he represents along with stability. continuity and a promise of jobs were in the pen says what the country needs, though, is something different. it will be up to voters to decide which vision of france they want. patasha, butler, al jazeera dinner in france. still to come on this al jazeera news. our war comes

12:34 am
different branches of the brit up. know, the biggest challenge that ukrainian agrarian are facing is to plant the fields in time when you know 82500 square kilometers of ukrainian land is mind. this means we need much time for d mining these lands tass agro is a big agribusiness and ukraine. historic to says it will be affected if the war doesn't end soon, but it is taking action that is more suitable. this is you, issue with the war is changing constantly. however, we created so call crisis teams and are preparing actively for showing which starts soon with the war has destroyed agri business in the east of ukraine and only fields in the south and west will be planted. but even then, forecasts indicate supply and labor shortages mean only half of those fertile fields will be cultivated. enjoy. this wakefield will be ready for harvest as a crucial part of ukraine's economy. however, will they be able to get this wheat onto a boat and out to international markets,
12:35 am
given the situation, russia has blocked ports on the black sea and the sea of as of about 13500000 tons of wheat. and 16000000 tons of corn are sitting in the docks combined with the war and the sanctions against russia. that's led to food prices rising everywhere. and the longer this conflict goes on, the higher don't get american how to 0 med vin. he region, israeli army has arrested 14 palestinians and a 3rd day of operations around g name and they occupy west bank. the rates follow a series of gun battles and the rest in the city. hundreds of people moved through the streets of gin and for the funeral of a palestinian teenager. he died overnight one day after being shot by israeli forces. tensions in the occupied west. bank of been rising after a series of attacks in israel killed 14 people in just 3 weeks. these for palestinians have died in recent, it's really great. israel has approved
12:36 am
a multi $1000000.00 upgrade to its separation wall, which cuts through and divides palestinian communities. it was deemed illegal whether you ends taught court back in 2004. john holman, has more now from baca is there any government systolic hated about $93000000.00 to reinforcing this the separation will that's between the occupied westbank and israel. now not all of it looks like base parts of it. a more rudimentary and there are holes in them. and that's what the government, israeli government wants to change. and all of this is coming off a series of attacks, one of which on the 29th of march, it's been confirmed that a palestinian did go through one of the holes in the wall and then killed 5 people on a city on the outskirts of tel aviv, now this separation will, which runs for hundreds of kilometers, is really controversial. many israelis think it's been a vital piece of protection from attack since it was put in place in the early 2

thousands palestinians. he is in apartheid wool cajun, the men built along arbitrary lines and in some cases, dividing whole communities and depriving many farmers from access to their land. they had a loose owns a billboard workshop in baca, on these raimie side in the shadow of the wolf. i could, i would see them, our relatives are on the other side. you cannot enter at all. you can only enter through the checkpoint. we only go once a year because there are difficulties in going in and out. you angela. but since it's been built, the walls actually become quite porous and tens of thousands of palestinians get through illegally every day to work ms ro. they're all those in israel that say, that's a good thing. it's cheap labor and a sort of pressure of out to decrease this content in the motives for attacks. now, it seems that some of those holes could be about to be sealed off. and the question is, if that will bring more security, or if erecting more wools will just mean more obstacles to an eventual solution to
12:38 am
the conflict. here you as president joe biden is tightening gun control. he's an anthony measures including action against so called ghost guns, which are almost impossible to trace that some unfinished gun pots will need a serial number. alan fish reports from the white house, joe biden is under pressure, gun violence is picking up, so is violent crime. the white house knows it has to be seen to be trying to get a grip of the problem. that's why put together comprehensive strategy to supercharge what works. one of the mean areas of focus. so cold goes guns, that can be built from a kit. you don't need a background check and they have no serial numbers yet. not hard. get it. that makes them unregulated, and virtually untraceable that can't stand, says the president. but let me ask you, is it extreme to protect police officers extreme protect our children?
12:39 am
extreme to keep guns out of the hands of people who couldn't even pass a background jack log. the idea that a, someone on a terrorist list could purchase one of these guns is extreme in an extreme, just basic common sense. the white house also announced the new head of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. steve dental buck will be charged with enforcing the crack don't. if he's confirmed to the position by the senate, the crack don't goes, guns has been brewing for months. and it's an acceptance that the rise and violence is a political liability for the democrats. but it's almost certainly going to be opposed by those who see it as an attack on the 2nd amendment of the constitution, the right to bear arms. and therefore, it's almost certainly going to end up in the course. our fisher al jazeera, at the white house. well, david casino is the deputy chief cancel of the give his law center, an organization dedicated to preventing gun violence. he joins us live now from
12:40 am
washington, d. c. david, a very warm welcome to the program. and david, what's behind the increased in these go scan numbers? well, what we've seen is that it's a really truthful way for traffic to source firearms. and so gun traffickers normally would have to go to a lot of trouble and a lot of risk in order to source firearms around the streets now to really easy way to do it. so it's already channels for them to source. a lot of farms them could not very quickly and at low risk, and i think that that's been responsible for their being such an increase of them on our streets at david. hi. how difficult is it to know just how many of these take guns are actually out there? well, we don't really have a solid figure because it's not something that has to be recorded out. we do know figures from, from e t, f, r, the 10s of thousands of them have been recovered over the last several years now referred to chuck. so i say that the biden administration isn't leaving fast enough to regulate these guns, but i'm guessing not everybody wants them regulated in this way, david. i think that's right. i mean, the companies that have been making a lot of money off this, of course,
12:41 am
want to continue to do so because their entire business model is they were selling guns, essentially, about the regulations of quite other stores of guns. so by exploiting this regulatory loop, we really had a competitive advantage and i think probably they want to fight hard to maintain it . but what's really happening here is just they're being treated on the same level playing field. does anyone else selling guns? is our political liability however provide and since you even sort of advertise wanting to change things, oh, i don't think so at all. i mean, these are something that i think really, people across the board should be able to agree. i mean, if you're not actually it goes gun company, it should be obvious that this should be happening this way. they should be regulated as guns, and we're seeing actually some bipartisan importance issue. there was a bill that was passed in maryland, large by parson support to address those guns and went to law despite the fact that they have a republican governor. and we've also got steve dental back. he's being and i says, the man to front the ts. how much of a battle in senate confirmation terms? is he likely to face? well, i think he's a great nominee and, and i'm hoping that it goes for it smoothly. i mean, really what we need is
12:42 am
a confirmed director at e t s. we've only had one of those. and it's really a detriment to the agencies enforcement abilities. i mean, this is just one example with this goes general, going through that we really need a to have to be strong and enforcement side because they don't really just a rule on paper. you know, they're telling me life from washington dc. david, thank you much protested ensure longer have returned for a 3rd day to the entrance of the president's office demanding that goal to buy a raja pox resign. they have an ongoing anti government demonstrations across the country now for almost 2 weeks, criticizing the government's handling of the country's worst economic crisis in decades to lancaster on the britain bankruptcy saddled with $25000000000.00 in foreign debt into english reserves of food prices are going up daily for some of the most basic supplies in shore, longer after a decision by the government. last october to remove controls, inflation is 17 and a half percent, and the currency has slumped against the dollar. let's take
