And it has gone homicide rate is just a fraction of the rate in the U.S., but it is still higher than any other wealthy country and has been rising. 8 months into Russia's war in Ukraine, Secretary of State Anthony blinken says when it comes to diplomacy to end the war. It depends entirely on whether Russia gets to a place where it's actually interested in stopping the aggression that it's started. And we have seen no evidence of that in this moment on the contrary. We see Russia doubling and tripling down on its aggression. That says the U.S. accuses Russia of using Iranian drones to attack civilians in power plants in Ukraine. The UN Security Council authorizes sanctions demands on anti violence and criminal activity in Haiti, U.S. ambassador Linda Thomas Greenfield. Now that this council has taken deliberate and decisive action to send a strong signal to the gains and those who fund them, we must help restore security and alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Haiti.

"The army. Was never a conscript. Have no military professions. It was never a reservist officer training. My health changed for the worst after I got my military registration document. But I was told here that my health is subject for call up in a period of war. How dangerous is it for this man, Victor, to fully identify himself, show this conscript call up this piece of paper. And talk about his own situation You know, it's actually a very interesting story because after he personally he makes his story public, his salmon was declined. So he's no longer supposed to go to the army right now because his story was so vocal and he spoke about it so openly. So he will be kept without military service for a while. But I'm afraid this is not the option for many people because right now we see the reports on like already dozens of hundreds of people receiving salmons and being drafted to the army. Of course, if even if all of them will start publishing their stories, it's rather impossible that military authorities will step back and just keep everyone in their positions and in their homes. So yeah, a lot of people are trying to protest the reason information that some guy jumped out of the window from the military office when he was already there and tried to flee the city he was. So yeah, people will be trying to save their lives with any tools they can. Are women drafted? The reason information about some women being called mostly nurses, medical doctors or some women who were already previously in the army because of their military background. But it's not a common medication for women yet. Hopefully. The Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov yesterday at the United Nations stormed out of the UN Security Council meeting after accusing the U.S. and its NATO allies of becoming direct parties to the conflict in Ukraine. This is what he said. We have no confidence in the work of this body. For the past 8 months we were waiting for steps to be taken against impunity and Ukraine, and we don't expect anything more from this institution or a whole range of other international institutions. Everything I've said today simply confirms that the decision to conduct a special military operation was inevitable. We have said this more than once. We've provided a huge number of facts, which show how Ukraine prepared to play the role of anti Russia as a staging ground to create threats against Russia's security. And I can assure you that we will never accept this. Thank you very much. Your response to Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov who then stormed out of the UN Security Council meeting. It's very difficult to respond anything that it is really a pity that UN that Council of Europe that OEC are losing their power and their influence all over the world and they simply have looks like they simply have no tools to deal with conflicts like this one like what is happening right now. And unfortunately the consequences will be horrible. And I realize it's difficult for you to talk as you speak to us from Moscow. I wanted to ask what happened to memorial to your human rights center in Moscow. Yeah, memorial was shut down by Russian government from multiple violations of the foreign agents law. It was the law which was introduced back in 2012. And it basically limited the ability of non governmental organizations to speak out publicly against human rights violations while they were receiving some foreign donations. Because it was the case for many human rights and a lot of them have been shut down or decided to close themselves. So memorial was both memorial organizations were working for quite a long time, but in November last year, it was already clear that the decision will be not in our favor and the legal entity in Russia finally was closed and pushing through. But that organization will continue to work probably not in Russia, probably somewhere else. I'm just no longer with the team. Why do you stay in Moscow? And do you feel personally threatened? I don't feel personally threatened yet. I had some security incidents which were to my not so scary. I realized that I live in somewhere means that, well, if I go, for example, to Georgia or Armenia, I will be one more Russian person there. And all those countries are welcoming so many Ukrainian refugees. So I think it's way more important for them to welcome Ukrainians first and only then if they have some spots left, give them to Russians and to other political refugees. So right now, when it's not that horrible for me yet, and if I can be still helpful to some people here, including the Ukrainian refugees in Russia, my decision is to say here for as long as I can. Are you going out in the streets? No, I'm not going out in the streets. It was my principal decision. Dated quite some years ago that because I was responsible for the NGO at the moment I couldn't go in the streets because if I were detained, the consequences for me and for the whole organization from the team would be not very bright. Right now I think I'm again more helpful if I stay at home and continue my job rather than if I will be detained because then immediately my risks will grow because I'm just not just some person be detained. As human, if I go on the streets and get arrested, then I will be harassed in each other even more than I already am. Anna, earlier this month, the European Union and retaliation against Russia's invasion of Ukraine ended privileged access for Russian citizens by increasing Visa fees and making the application process more difficult. Does this worry you as Russian men and women try to free the mobilization try to flee the mobilization? Yes, it is very worrisome and vice versa. I'm hoping that the United States will do the opposite and will be given more visas to Russian citizens because clearly we understand all the security concerns of European Union, but it's really a mistake to get Russian society even more isolated than it already is. It is crucial for all of us to be able to travel to meet our colleagues to meet independent journalists and be able to speak openly. Of course, a lot of people are have left already and will be leaving because they are afraid of because they don't want to go to army. And having a Visa in their pocket is something you really need to be assured that nothing bad will happen to them and they will not end up in Russian prison or in the battlefield, which is much, much worse. So I really hope that this decision with visas can be changed to the sometimes

"Are going on Russians have been told that if they hear of war and death in Ukraine it's not true CBS has Deborah paddock is on the ground in Ukraine I personally saw evidence of war crimes and these stories can't be staged and the overwhelming grief that I've witnessed that just can't be manufactured More sanctions against Russia expected tomorrow CBS News special report a matte piper Joining us live now with more on president zelensky's remarks today to the Security Council is CBS correspondent Pamela faulk at the UN Pamela elaborate a bit more on what president zelensky had to say and what he wants the UN to do Hi thank you Mark Number one he talked about the war crimes that you just heard from Deborah patter What he wanted to make sure that he told world leaders that Russia is deliberately destroying Ukrainian city and what he did was give it in grim chapter and verse that bodies are dumped into hastily Doug great mass graves that people's tongues were cut out that entire villages as you mentioned were killed and they tried to burn the bodies All of that so that people would see really and hear firsthand what a war crime looks like Number two is he wanted to make sure that people feel that Russia has to be held accountable because Russia has been dissembling at the UN Security Council for weeks including yesterday barking about this meeting and then also saying they wanted their own yesterday which the UK refused to give them to say that town outside of Ukraine were all these bodies were found in basements next to their bicycles hands tied all of that atrocity was faked We're made up photos and it's not sure So what they so sorry So zelensky wants is war crimes Yeah that's why I was going to ask you what does zelensky want the UN Security Council to do And more importantly what can the council do at this point Well he wants these war crimes trials started and actually 39 countries they have the International Criminal Court They certainly inquiry UN human rights has its own inquiry and UN monitoring in the Ukrainians too And it's different than during the Holocaust or loss of it or any of the other Nuremberg famous war crimes trials where it took two years This is collection of data in real time which means they could actually get a conviction Now the second thing he wanted to do was say look nothing is happening as you were saying Deb To Security Council Russia's blocking everything So the UN is taking most of its issues the U.S. and the UK to the General Assembly but they can't do anything So what zelensky said was look you have two options Find a way to get Russia off this veto power seat or dissolve yourself And that was unusual because you haven't heard UN reform in a long time but the more that the world is seeing the security alliance of NATO that doesn't protect any country that's not a member And the UN the can't even say that it's going to condemn and store any kind of action against Russia in the Security Council which is the most powerful and enforceable in the international law They can't do that because Russia has a veto This is 1945 not 2022 And so what he saying is let's start again Ukraine is in a good position to mobilize the world to create a new organization that has every country has one vote It will be interesting to see how the UN responds to this Pamela thank you for breaking it down for us That is CBS correspondent Pamela faulk at the UN One 36.

"We're only just getting the first kind of information about as if it was an aircraft repair facility that was targeted, which of course rather than the city itself, which of course makes sense because one of the real problems for Russia is that it hasn't been able to gain control over the Ukrainian skies at least not full control. So in this thing that the grades Ukraine's capacity to conduct any kind of war in the air is going to be a target for the Russians and it seems that that's what they targeted rather than the city itself, which is a long way away from the fighting. There does seem to be international consensus that Russia is committing war crimes. We'll official censure make any difference. No, I don't think it will. I mean, I think it's very important to recognize that this is a war in which what looked very much like war crimes are taking place. But this isn't the first time that Russia is behaved like this, of course, so in Russia was party to the conflict in Syria where it and the government of Syria committed war crimes and also, of course, in the wars in Chechnya actually inside Russia itself in the 1990s and early naughty. Where terrible human rights abuses were committed and not a great deal was done about it by the international community. So I think the Russian government is quite used to this happening and quite used to getting away with it and all honestly. What was the outcome of the UN Security Council meeting yesterday?

"Nation a member, a veto power member of the NATO of the UN Security Council. With nuclear weapons at its disposal that has decided to take a nation by force to rape the nation of Ukraine and add it to the territory of the Soviet Union. Let me be very adamant. Let me be explicitly clear to my fellow conservatives. The idea that this is just something happening thousands of miles away, which is irrelevant. Is fallacious. In fact, it is immoral. I will never argue for the deployment of troops on the territory of a nation that should fight for itself. And isn't a member of NATO. But think of this difference, just go back to your childhood, go back to the playground at school. The bully may have been bullying somebody else. But as long as somebody refused to step up and challenge that bully and give that bully a bloody nose, then that bully would consider his victory to be a permanent one and intimidate others. Just

Of course, lots of controversy during his career. He went before the UN Security Council made the case for war against Iraq. He, of course, reveal himself to be an Obama supporter and to many of us who at one point thought he might be a viable Republican candidate for office, that was all scuttled when he confirmed that he was essentially a liberal. And our political differences with colon Powell don't change our respect for his life and his legacy and most important the pain and grief that his family is feeling at his loss.

Biden announces US will sanction Myanmar's military leaders following coup

"Last week's data in myanmar provided the new us administration of president joe biden with its first major foreign policy crisis. We now have an idea of america's response. President biden has signed an executive order imposing sanctions on the coup leaders. This will be followed by measures to block the myanmar's military access to government funds held in the us. Further measures seem likely showed the gionta not to american demands that democratic order be restored one by louis lukens former. Us diplomat now senior partner with cigna global advisors liu first of all this all seem certainly measured against the last four years widely normal. Doesn't it well it does. You're right andrew. It does seem normal and there is a policy process in washington. That was carried out there. Tony blinken and president biden consulted with about this issue and then came to a decision to impose sanctions so very normal. Didn't learn about it by tweet. Sort of back to the good old days of foreign policy. I think not that. I'm wishing to sound overly nostalgic four the immediately preceding four years. But in an instance like this is this orthodoxy helpful. I mean the demand. Maurice generals rather priced this in. Wouldn't they well. The process and the consultant with allies is helpful whether sanctions themselves will be useful remains to be seen sanctions. Tend to have very limited effectiveness and the people who are targeted by sanctions. In this case the military leadership Tend to be able to to be somewhat immune to the effects of the sanctions. They and so the. Us has walk a very fine line in trying to punish the leadership but in a way. That doesn't actually trickle down and really hurt. The the average burmese people who who are responsible for the the off course well just as a general principle then. Is there any reason to imagine that the people behind the coup. D'etat actually care what. The united states thinks that. This point probably not much reason to think that they care you know. China is their number one trading partner. They do roughly three third of their trade with china and the us is not even in the top five list of trading partners So you know it's great that the us has a couple allies on board. And i think the tony blinken talk to his japanese counterpart yesterday to to sort of coordinate a little bit on this but if china is not going to impose sanctions which they won't it really reduces the effectiveness of what the us can do in that especially in that country where we have very few ties. So how much of the american response. So far and i guess what we might still see often. American response is not so much the new. Us administration hoping it can affect an outcome in this specific circumstance but is more trying to set a general tone trying to establish. This is how this administration is going to do business. This is how we're going to react to things. Yeah look. I mean even if even if the sanctions are completely symbolic sends an important message that the that the united states will not tolerate this kind of activity and will work to promote the the sustenance of democratic governments around the world if the united states had ignored the coup in myanmar mar. I think that would send a message to people thinking about overthrowing governments around the world that hey we can do this now and get away with it now. The burmese military leaders may still get away with it remains to be seen whether the us sanctions will have any effect or not but the us had to send a message in some ways. This is a new administration and we're gonna take democracy seriously. How much more. Careful is the united states being about me on mob this time than it might have been during the previous stretch of military rule because in that period of course it did seem like a much more straightforward good guys versus bad guys proposition than you had this. All neha canonized a leader in waiting under house arrest on sang suci Whose stature. I think has been somewhat reduced by her own complicity with the people who've just thrown out of a job. Yeah i mean certainly. Her stature has been diminished over the last years in. Not just yeah. i mean. Basically because of her alignment with the military leaders in sort of her reaction to the the genocide in myanmar. That said i think the united states is trying to look at is not from the perspective of individual personalities but from the perspective of the principles of democracy and our unwillingness or or distaste for To go along with with appearing to support a military coup so we have to come out. The united states had to come out and strongly against this coup and short of military action economic sanctions against the people who perpetrated a coup really. The only way to go for now. The united states does of course have a diplomatic relationship with me on march for the moment at least any way you have been a diplomat serving abroad for the united states in a in a circumstance like this is there anything ambassadors another embassy staff on the ground candu or is it more likely case. They've just been told to make as little noise as they possibly can. Well i think the probably been quite vocal. I think in and you have to walk a fine line. You don't wanna be so vocal against the new leaders in the military that that you get thrown out of the country because certainly that is a possibility now. But you wanna make america's presence known and you wanna know you wanna make america's policies known so my guess is that Certainly through social media which is of limited value in me mark. I think the government has cut down.
