"This is the news in brief from the United Nations. A Russian delegation is holding talks in Geneva with senior UN officials over the future of the Black Sea grain initiative, which has enabled unimpeded exports of food and fertilizers from some of Ukraine's Black Sea ports. While helping to stave off a global hunger crisis, there has been no guarantee as yet that Russia will continue to honor the deal. Russia's deputy minister of foreign affairs, Sergei reschen, began talks on Friday with the UN conference on trade and development head, Rebecca grinspan, and UN emergency relief coordinator Martin Griffiths. Secretary general Antonio Guterres has urged both Russia and Ukraine to extend the deal, which could expire on 19th of November, at the end of October, Russia suspended its participation in the initiative for several days, saying that Ukraine was using the agreement as cover to target Russian ships in Crimea. 1 million desperately vulnerable people in northern Mozambique could see their lifesaving support cut unless spending is urgently found to help the UN World Food Program WFP said on Friday. The warning comes amid intensifying extremist violence in Cabo Delgado, the most food insecure province in the country and home to 1.15 million people in crisis or emergency hunger levels. WFP is extremely worried that the funding shortage will coincide with the hardest months of the upcoming hunger season in February. The agency said that, although difficult for some time, the funding situation is now running out of options. It is appealing to donors to continue lifesaving assistance to the most vulnerable. Millions of people from Ukraine, Afghanistan, and across the Middle East, displaced by conflict or persecution, could face a perilous winter as freezing temperatures add to the misery already induced by spiraling prices, the lingering impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and extreme weather linked to the climate crisis, according to the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, UNHCR spokesperson, Olga serrado, said on Friday that millions of the world's most vulnerable people will be without essential basics. For many of the world's forcibly displaced this coming winter will be far more challenging than in recent years. Many displays families will have no option, but to choose between food and warmth as they struggle to heat their shelters, source warm clothing and cook hot meals. Despite worsening humanitarian needs, funding for lifesaving aid programs and assistance remains bleak and has already forced UNHCR to scale back essential aid in several countries.

To Ukraine where the top UN aid official in the country has appealed for $4.3 billion in increased funding for those affected by the war, since the Russian invasion in February, local national and international humanitarian organizations have helped more than 11 million people across the country, but the reality is that more people need support, said UN humanitarian coordinator for Ukraine, Denise Brown. She said that at least 17.7 million people that's over a quarter of Ukraine's population will need assistance in the months ahead. That number is about 2 million more than had been estimated in April, said miss Brown, who warned that there were fears for this winter, as more people will probably displace from areas where they can not access gas, fuel or electricity to heat their homes. The new financial request, up from $2.25 billion three months ago to $4.3 billion now, is to make sure that aid workers have the funding and resources necessary to continue delivering critical assistance and protection services to people across Ukraine until December 2022.

"This is the news in brief from the United Nations. UN chief Antonio Guterres on Tuesday said that it's time for a diplomatic solution to be found to end Russia's invasion of Ukraine and end its unwinnable and indefensible war there. The secretary general was speaking to journalists outside the Security Council in New York, telling them from his own outreach efforts, elements of diplomatic progress were coming into view on several key issues. The war is going nowhere fast. For more than two weeks, Mario Paul has been encircled by the Russian army and relentlessly bombed, shelled and attacked. For what? Even if Mario Paul falls, Ukraine can not be conquered, city by city, street by street. House by house, the only outcome to all these is more suffering, more destruction and more order as far as the eye can see. Nearly a month since Russia invaded Ukraine more than three and a half million refugees have fled the country, UN humanitarians have said, in Poland, where 2 million Ukrainians are sheltering, the World Health Organization WHO said that many refugees had chronic healthcare needs requiring urgent assistance. Here's doctor palomi kuchi, WHO representative in Poland. In Ukraine is very restricted and on top of the refugees are coming from a long difficult dangerous journey until they arrive to the border of Poland. Children are traveling for days without the proper food, we have the proper water. They are tired. They are worried. The development comes amid reports that Russian shelling has continued to target heavily built up areas inside Ukraine. Latest UN health agency data has now confirmed 62 attacks on healthcare inside Ukraine since Russian forces invaded on the 24th of February. Reflecting the global commodity price crunch made worse by Russia's invasion of Ukraine, UN humanitarians in Haiti warned that it would likely hurt vulnerable people in the highly import dependent island nation. In an alert on Tuesday the UN World Food Program, WFP warned that hunger levels in Haiti were rising unabated, amid persistent political instability, growing inflation and recurrent disasters, much of the island's wheat comes from Russia and Canada, said WFP country director Pierre honora. So if the wheat flour is going up, you would see a problem. And as I say, the price has already multiplied by 5 in two years. So what we can only expect is that it will multiply again. Need to remain high in the southern part of Haiti where communities are still reeling from a devastating earthquake that hit in August 2021. In the north heavy flooding in January hit Haitians hard, prompting WFP to scale up its response with daily food deliveries. More than four in ten Haitians are food insecure, including one and a half million who require an emergency response. In Mozambique's Cabo Delgado province unrelenting violence and bloodshed has forced thousands to flee their homes since the start of the year, the UN refugee agency, UNHCR said on Tuesday. It comes at one year after attacks in the northern coastal town of Palma by suspected Al shabab militants, he began an insurgency in 2017.

They need humanitarian assistance and protection services urgently, said mister Cheshire, who added that hundreds of families are reportedly still on the move. Those fleeing violence suffered and witnessed atrocities, including killings, the decapitation and dismemberment of bodies, sexual violence, kidnappings, forced recruitment, by armed groups, and torture. The threat of renewed violence means the number of people arriving in what it continues to increase. UNHCR is working with partners and local authorities to help the displaced. It is providing shelter materials and household items to vulnerable families, monitoring those with protection needs and supporting authorities to manage sites hosting the displaced, Daniel Johnson,.

"Carol hills. This is the world it's been eight weeks. Since myanmar's military seized total power in a coup. On saturday they had a big parade. In myanmar's capital of naypyidaw the military marched in showed off its tanks and missiles elsewhere in the country. It was chaos in a single day. Myanmar's military gunned down more than one hundred on armed civilians across the country. Even killing children. It was the bloodiest day of the crackdown against non violent protesters since the coup began. The world's patrick win has been speaking to protesters in myanmar patrick. What exactly did the army do. We'll carol it's it was basically mass murderer i mean it was to terrorize the population It's not just police and troops aiming at a few protesters and shooting him shooting them in the head to scare them back inside. They were doing that before. But now they're also going into neighborhoods that are deemed unruly and just randomly shooting and people's windows while people are in bed They also went to the funeral of a protester. Someone they killed and shot at people as they were in morning and in in the city of mandalay there were some tire setup on the road where locals made a barricade to keep the troops out the army. Set it on fire. And when a man tried to put it out shot him and threw his body on the fire That man was named aiko. He had four kids and photos of his. Charred body are all over social media. So there's this feeling carol That nobody is safe in san mar even kids a number of children and eleven year old girl a five year. Old boy were killed on. Saturday and quite a few young teenagers have been killed. And that brings the death toll to four fifty and it's going up every day is just horrible the way you talk about it. It sounds like these aren't just clashes and protests. The military are seeking people out in their homes. The thing to understand is the military in. Myanmar is like a nation inside of a nation. They have soldiers and officers with their own schools their own hospitals their own towns even in that bubbles. There's this really strong ideology that says we. The powerful army can hold this country together and only we can teach them that they're up against foreign forces like the us and china who wanted infiltrate the country and these protesters are brainwashed by the cia and to chaos and so they believe they have to crush these forces to suppress the traders. That's really what they think. What's been the reaction to this around the world. Well there's the usual condemnation from presidents and heads of state Joe biden said. It's terrible it's absolutely. I think what's new carol is. This was so bad that the defense chiefs of twelve different countries came out and condemned myanmar's army for murdering civilians. That's germany the uk australia but also asian countries that usually hold their tongue like japan and south korea. To countries that did not condemn Army are russia and china russia. Sent its deputy defense minister to attend that parade. That banquet for armed forces day as people are being shot and these two countries are the biggest arms suppliers to me and mars. Military patrick. violence against protesters seems to be mostly happening in cities. How is this uprising. Playing out in the jungles where ethnic armed groups have been fighting the military for decades. So what mar is home to a majority ethnic group burmese who mostly live in the lowlands and the towns and the cities but there are many many other indigenous groups in the country the koran the the mon- the kind the chen many others and they all have their own resistance armies to defend their homelands and a few of these indigenous groups with guns have come out and said hey we want to support this uprising somehow and one of them the koran who live in jungles close to thailand actually stormed an outpost of the army near the border and took their guns away tied up their troops to humiliate them on armed forces day. The military is hit them back with jet strikes which are still ongoing as i understand and that sent thousands of these foreign people fleeing into thailand. So this is starting to become a refugee crisis. And i think the message is if you want to play around with this uprising. Indigenous armed groups. We will strike back extra hard and we have fighter jets and attack choppers that you don't so so watch out so patrick. Where do we go from here. It feels like me and mars. Military just doesn't care what other people think. No they really. Don't they very much steeped in their own ideology They're not very worried about joe biden condemning them. They know that they can continue to get weapons from china and russia. And they're used to this honestly. They've been a pariah in south east asia and to the west for decades. So they're ready to hunker down fact. Some of the generals have said something to that effect. We've been here before we can endure it. We will come out the other side. The world's patrick win speaking to us from bangkok. Thanks a lot patrick. Thanks carol and a quick follow up to that story.
