hour ago the ukrainian parliament voted to impose martial wall inside the country. a clash at sea causing waves of international concern a russian military ship rams into a ukrainian tugboat off the coast of crimea. the vessel was then fired at and captured by the russians along with two other ships and dozens of ukrainian sailors several of whom were injured. the united nations security council held an emergency meeting where western countries accused russia of stoking the already deadly war with ukraine what we witnessed this weekend is yet another reckless russian escalation it is an arrogant act that the international community must condemn and will never accept in response russia's representative said the ukrainian ship had violated its territorial waters moscow says the vessel ignored warning shots to

stop it claims the incident was a provocation by ukrainian president viktor to boost his support in upcoming elections. in kiev publishing co has declared a state of martial law for thirty days but insisted it would not interfere with the looming presidential vote. in brussels nato secretary-general warned russia that its actions would have consequences questions that is no justification for the use of military force against ukraine and ships and naval personnel. so we call on our show to release immediately their crane sailors and ships it seized yesterday sea traffic is again flowing through the disputed waters after russia briefly blocked the crucial passage but moscow says it will continue to hold the ukrainian ships and sailors while it conducts its own investigation. and for the latest now i'm joined by our very own nicholas conley he's in kiev good evening to you
10:04 pm
nicholas so what will the introduction of martial law mean in concrete terms and help us understand how will martial law protect ukrainians from aggression by russia good evening brant well this has been a very stormy day even by the relatively lively standards of ukraine's parliament the rada just in the last few hours so we've seen this martial law passed what exactly that will mean concrete terms that seems to all of confusion as the exact terms but we know it's going to be in place for thirty days and applied to ten regions along ukraine's borders especially those borders next to. russia and of the russian occupied crimea what this is about is about civil liberties about basically sex facing potentially some civil liberties temporarily for the greater good of the country as the government would have it so that means potentially employer imposing temporary censorship restricting freedom of assembly and also giving the police
10:05 pm
greater powers and even potentially mobilizing reserve it so that the president said he will only do that if there are further acts of russian intervention in ukraine as he put it i think the really important thing to remember here is that. in the past few years that ukraine has seen a lot of conflicts crimea being an explorer and on bass this has not been applied this is the first time that ukraine has seen this since the last minor evolution that saw ukraine slide into conflict with russia it's the first time we've seen a marshall wall imposed in ukraine does that mean the country the ukrainians do they fear that they are headed towards a full fledged war with russia i think it's not quite panic yet but there is a certain nervousness i just got back to kiev few hours ago at the airport one thing that really struck me was people listening to radio transmissions or watching
10:06 pm
on their smartphones the direct live coverage from parliament this is something you know people who maybe we wouldn't normally be in politics glued to their screens has been a lot of speculation online that this could have a real serious impact on ukraine's economy which hasn't been doing well anyway you know this could scare off investors and could see people losing their jobs i think we're not at the war stage yet but this is definitely something that has really what can people out and really does signal the beginning of the election campaign presidential elections to be held next year and people worried that this could get nasty and how does martial wall play into the fact that the election is is all the horizon in ukraine i mean is there an interplay there. well present for sinkers biscoe potence would say that this is political on his thought that he wants to position himself as commander in chief the father of the nation and perhaps even more sinister really use martial law to delay the elections
10:07 pm
he's being quite clear that he doesn't want to do this that's why most of the noise law now is going to thirty days which means it won't impact it won't push those elections back as had been expected today so he's quite clear that he's trying to get any suggestion of. point scoring for his own political side out the way but that is the suggestion coming from moscow and from those opponents here and give. our to who responded nicolas connelly on the story for us tonight in kiev in ukraine nick thank you well here's some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world british prime minister to resign may says the house of commons will vote on her plan to leave the e.u. on december eleventh it comes after she faced in hours long grilling from skeptical lawmakers over her proposal the e.u. formally approved teresa mayes plan on sunday may have says the deal is the best and only deal available in yemen these salty led coalition has launched an assault

10:09 pm
lasted about an hour sending a shockwave through t.-o. on a. single most of the news that often i've been living and working here for more than twenty years and i've never seen anything like this it's as if this were a war zone. it all began with a peaceful protest with about a thousand migrants taking past including women and children. that isn't much and to put pressure on the authorities to see if maybe they were let history to the u.s. . then eyewitnesses say a few hundred protesters broke away from the group unexpectedly the mexican police were not able to stop them the u.s. closed the border for several hours until the situation had calmed mexico's interior minister says the action has harmed the plight of all the migrants mexico has promised to deport those who stormed the border or anyone who attempts to enter the u.s. illegally. one step closer to unlocking the secrets of the red planet

nasa scientists are celebrating after their insights spacecraft successfully touched down on mars just a short while ago. you know that was the moment the zines is received confirmation that the lander had arrived after a six month voyage through space and relieve all around after a nerve wracking wait shortly after touching down the craft beamed back this first image from the surface the billion dollar mission hopes to collect data on quite interim or is deep underground to explain how mars was formed really. well there where you are with your our science your how you doing doing ok what you remember good i mean this is a big relief for nasa right i mean it's not easy to land on mars is no it's not i mean the probe took a four hundred fifty million kilometer trip to get there starting with that and then slowing down from around twenty thousand kilometers an hour to a walking pace within the space of just six and
10:11 pm
a half to seven minutes is actually quite a feat and i mean they do it through it's a whole series of events has to happen and they have to happen in the right order and the time has to be absolutely perfect it starts out there's this carrier craft that's underneath the lander went as it first enters the atmosphere and it heats up the thousand to well over a thousand degrees centigrade and it's and as it descends it heats up and heats up and heats up and some point it has to decouple and it decouples once have to slow down to around eight hundred fifty kilometers an hour and and it burns up in the atmosphere and at that point you have the supersonic parachute that deploys and it slows the craft down and slows the lander down even further it slows down having a break and slamming on the brakes the whole time and then eventually at the couples from that supersonic parachute and it's under the under the power of its own thrusters until eventually it's basically hovering slowly settles down onto the surface and so now that it's on the ground it's going to be seeing some. like this what are we hoping it is going to tell us actually it will see something like this
10:12 pm
because they've they've purposefully landed the lander in a space that's complete that's as flat and as free of rocks as they possibly can because all of that all of the research on this particular mission is about finding out not what's happening on the surface of mars but what's happening under the surface on its interior is an important well it's you can't say that it's important for for direct reasons it's going to help us understand we know a lot about what happens in the interior of our own planet but all the information that we have about mars so far has been just more or less guesswork and so it doesn't have direct fundamental importance for creating products for example however it's basic fundamental research that's going to tell us a lot about how our solar system formed and answer some of those questions that we have about terrestrial planets in their formation and eventually obviously to every trip to mars is where we can land successfully is a big bonus that teaches us more about space travel because one day we want to go there we're always one step closer nail in the last few minutes sending people to
10:13 pm
mars sending people to mars as kind of a completely different ball of wax and sending a probe to mars it's you're confronted with a whole different set of problems and obstacles when you're trying to send people that kind of distance i will work so you can't slam on the brakes like that for example but every single trip that we take will deliver information about a planet where we one day hope to go and that could in the long run turn out to be important information for the people when they do finally one day get there you know when's that going to be my guess is twenty thirty five all right when i heard you do it all right as always it's good seeing you thank you thanks. it was america's biggest soccer showpiece featuring argentinian powerhouses river. in years was cancelled twice over the weekend after an attack on river things team bus in. a rematch could be delayed further by the upcoming g twenty summit in the
