has been set up in moscow's red square with the annexation celebrated on friday. president vladimir putin is planning to give a speech owing a signing ceremony with supper. this leaders who are already in moscow, russia last annex the ukraine's crimea through a similar process in 2014. our correspondent mathias bellinger joins us now from the ukrainian capital, kia, but here's what impact is this annexation move likely to have well on the ground, not much. it is neither going to stop ukraine from trying to read, take the occupied territories, nor did miraculously enhancing the russian military's capabilities and the long term it might have, however, an impact because what to put in is doing there. he is basically blocking the exit from these territories, the diplomatic exit from these territories, any way to retreat from ukraine by claiming that these territories are russia. so
any, any, any solution to the war will, will be even more difficult under the pressure on also, maybe the russian public is higher to continue this war. does annexation mathias mean that putins nuclear threats now extend to those annex territories? while these nuclear threats, they haven't been very specific or they have been contradicted. and that's for a reason. i think it's very clear that if the kremlin ever decides to use nuclear weapons, it will be based on 2 criteria, whether it can gain anything by it and whether it can get away with it. there is no list of criteria a, b, c, and d. and if all of them are met, then russia has to use a will definitely use these weapons. this is a decision that they will make according to their estimates of what they can expect
to happen after that. the west does not recognize these annexations. obviously the e u is announcing further sanctions, but what can be done about it mathias? it doesn't look like anything can be done to stop this process or that is now underway. but of course, what is going to be, what, what can be done and what is going to happen is most probably that the war will go on, or that the crime will try to come to take back these occupy terry trees and that they will receive aid from the west as they have now, and that the west will keep their sanctions are. that's probably the that's the most probable scenario. and that's pretty much what are those who don't agree with it? ukraine and the western countries can do right now and he has thank you very much. now that was our correspond mathias spelling of their in t the swedish coast guard has found
a 4th leak in the north stream gas pipelines. the ruptured after under sea explosions were detected. scientists say the baltic sea lines could be pumping out the biggest methane released on record. questions of blame remain as, as both of the e. u and russia demand answers. moscow has called the united nations security council meeting to address the issue. european leaders, i read it about the pipeline leaks in the politics that you faced. the damage was likely caused by deliberate act raising security concerns. but the european commission has not said who might have been behind the suspect at separate touch. today, ms. oller, who is everything, is being done to try to identify the origin of this is express joy in responsibility. as europe largest natural gas supplier, norway thief, it will beef up the security efforts, antarctic infrastructure ears to turn the events in the baltic sea have resulted in the government deciding to further strengthen al preparedness around on and
offshore infrastructures to prevent another incident in force, widen or by the military will be more present and visible near our oil and gas installations. insulin enrollment really does have warrant of retaliation for any attack on europe in our t networks. it here to reveal there is no doubt that this is very serious. it is not a coincidence, this was planned. that is what i am or other things of discussed with the installed and burg nato secretary general. because this is serious. russia says it's launching an international that it had some investigation into the leaks denying allegations it was involved with. well, you know, it's quite predictable and also predictably stupid to make such claims. i repeat once again, predictably stupid and absurd or absolute. the gas escaping from the pipelines is also an environmental concern. it contains high levels of meeting and authority.
fear it could be the equivalent of one 3rd of denmark, sorted animal, greenhouse gas emissions. he w, washington bureau chief in his paul has been speaking with former u. s. general david betray us. she asked him about ukraine's recent territorial gains. and what the consequences would be of russia used nuclear weapons. the ukrainians have decisively won the battle of force generation. in other words, from the very beginning, they mobilized completely. and now this country of less than a 3rd, the population of russia has a much larger army in the field in ukraine. it is vastly better equipped, of course, $15100000000.00 worth of military hardware and ammunition and assistance from the united states alone and plenty more from our nato allies and other western countries throughout the world. and now they are bringing these new forces and capabilities to bear in
a very effective matter on the battlefield. there is nothing that russia can do to reverse the situation generally that some people say just because of that. and as you just mentioned, because putting might be so desperate that it could be likely that he uses nuclear weapons and then to do, do you think it is likely and what would it mean? it is certainly a possibility. that possibility has to be taken very seriously. i don't think it is that likely? but again, something so dangerous and horrific does have to be taken seriously. clearly, as jake solomon indicated, we are taking very seriously and more importantly, we're communicating with russia and with the leadership. they are presumably in a general way what the response would be to obviously deter them to sway them from taking this decision. if anything, it will unite ukraine even more against russia,
it will unite nato even more against russia. it will result in additional very various toughest sanctions. financial economic personal. this could be the moment where rushes finally declared a state sponsor of terror. perhaps even worse crimes charges are levied against this. i think this takes the gloves off in terms of the western response. former u. s. general david patricia, they're speaking with d. w. so washington bureau chief in his poll now hurricane ian is moving across the state of florida after battling the gulf coast and causing catastrophic flooding. it made landfall as one of the strongest storms ever to hit the u. s. and while it has since weakened it is still unleashing strong winds and rental range authorities are scrambling to respond and warn hubble lawn cleanup ahead. hurricane hunters fly
into the eye of storms to gather data from it to roy ologist. oh, but this hunter was shocked by the strength of this hurricane. he says e n will be one to remember. today's flight was certainly the roughest that i've been on and my 6 years of doing this and it was, it was a messy pass. and i think even if you know in the future we fly through a storm in it and the being worse than that, it'll still be one that i think back on. it's like, oh wow, was it worse than year? i'm not sure. ian has turned florida sandy, beaches and coastal towns into a disaster zone. streets have been turned into rivers and nearly 2000000 homes and businesses are without power. hundreds of thousands of people have been ordered to evacuate. but some of chosen to write out the hurricane. you
as president joe biden has urged people to heat the safety precautions life threatening. you should obey all warranties and directions for emergency. officials . don't take anything for granted. use their judgment. not yours. a vacuum when order hurry can ian was one of the most powerful storms to ever hit the united states. the states governor says that it could take years to recover from the devastation left behind. this is a, a major, major event. it's going to be going to be a tragic event in many ways, and we understand this is not just a 48 hour ordeal. this is going to be something that is going to be there for days and weeks and months. and unfortunately, in some circumstances, even years, ian has become significantly weaker after making landfill. and it is expected to
weaken further as it hits in land. but even so, experts a warning off, devastating rain and even tornadoes as it tears across the state of moralist. last spring and linda speech here, she's a hydro meteorologist and lecturer at the university of oxford, focusing on early warning systems for disasters particularly floods. thanks for being with us. dr. straight hurricane impounded. cuba is now hitting florida. extremely hard. were these places properly prepared for the storm? well, i think florida in particular probably was, i mean, florida is used to experiencing lots of hurricanes and the warnings were issued. what in advance for this event we're talking about a week ago on the messaging around or even for the weekend have been talking about catastrophic letting danger to lie, devastating a history making event. even the people in florida probably were pads of this. and that already seen it to kiera, they knew what was coming. are you seeing any change in patterns when it comes to
large storms? yes, definitely. i mean we're seeing more and more intense events. and the research doesn't seem to think we're seeing more and more hurricanes or more tropical cycling occurring when they do occur. they seem to be more intense. and the reason for this is, and the rising label temperatures. so her kinds of driven by and temperature if you've got warm oceans and the add energy to the storm system and it means that can intensify fast. it also means that there's more moisture available in the atmosphere. you can suck up more water and then when it rains, it kind of that's more, more mindful to happen. so these events are becoming more intense. and most of this are, they were not seeing an increase in frequency. we're seeing more hurricanes that meet that kind of category 34, or you can 5 threshold ok more intense, more, more severe earned or you're saying that's directly attributable to global warming, to what degree are vulnerable areas able to cope with events like this moving
forward? well, i mean, i think that's something that we really need to work on now because we've got the science which says, you know, we know, we know we're going to see more of these events. so now we need to think about the resilience. how can we make communities more able to keep them places like florida we can see people have been taking the warning seriously. they've been evacuating when asked che, stocking up on food on water. but actually earlier on when the hurricane hit cuba, you can see that the bunch of uh into their much more inputted and they don't have a good food supply. the electricity is out pretty, take a lot longer to return to normal. that not have access to simple things like am drinking water. so these type of things, when you think about the most valuable community would definitely feel the impacts of climate change, harder and 1st. what can governments, herb, and planners even the public in general do to avoid the impact of extreme weather events. but in the future, while i mean avoiding impacts is going to be pretty difficult. there's no way that
you could avoid the impact of an hurricane ear and you know that much intensity and power was going to cause does justice, whatever, wherever it hits, i think we need to be much more past. be really aware that in a changing climate we're going to see more of these type of extreme weather events . and take, take the warning seriously and think, you know, what can we do in advance rather than rushing around, trying to do immediately before the event happens. and, and take care of other people. what about people? not communities. oh more. well, why don't think actually to prevent the impacts of climate change. one of the biggest things we can do is bring people out of poverty and said the people have got the capacity themselves to be more resilient to these type of events. then a space from the university of oxford. thank you very much. thank you. it's catch up now and some of the other stores making headlines around the world. today us vice president camilla harris visited the demilitarized zone that divides the korean peninsula, where she said, washington will use its full range of military capabilities to defend south korea.
