5:06 pm
a big geopolitical game. and ukraine, unfortunately, is in the center. ok. nato's providing reassurance to it's eastern members by bolstering true numbers there. but what do you think the alliance will actually do if russia does invite? well, certainly, if the alliance will keep supporting ukraine and on political, diplomatic, and even military technical level. but also certainly elaine's not going to sams boots on the ground and what is more important. ukrainian l already never asked for soldiers. and so we have plenty of a really high level for us to defend the country. but we do need international support. right. and if you talk
5:07 pm
about the ukraine being ready, it's obviously it's going to be outgunned by russia. can they actually defend the country? so well, a ukrainian defense reforms, re sure, been progress since 20 at least 2016 is more to reach military balance or to, you know, get man, man power. similar to what the russia, as our aim is mostly defense and deterrence to the price for possible any possible invasion to the level that the school's been. if you calculate to change the kremlin scores benefit calculations, right? if, if a invade, it has to cost them daily, because russia now has about $130000.00 troops that ukraine's border there war games going on in. they bring about a rose and i'm naval drills in the black sea,
5:08 pm
effectively blocking ukraine's ports. so as you see this unfold, i you actually worried oh whoa. is it? it's not a pleasant feeling. believe me. to understand that you and circled by the russian troops from bella, 1000 kilometers more than one, follow them from the east. and the last couple of days, russia actually closed the entire as o. c. and the, the part of the blake c actually access the cranium ports to the blacks. and you can understand that this is not very pleasant. at the same time i lean to you, i haven't noticed anything unusual. i don't dispute on the supermarkets on in conversation in my is my friends and colleagues. right. so that's, it looks like right,
5:09 pm

5:11 pm
but the w. w. f one, the substance is reached every part of the ocean definitely reach the point where the system is overloaded and where we enter or where we will be edge. because the problem seems to become, or will grow bigger over the couple of a coming years. because the producers of plastic already stated that they will produce more. so we fear that more plastic will enter the oceans and the commission in the, in the oceans to micro anaplastic, which grades the biggest problems the temperatures across the oceans pose. yet more problems. us researchers found out the hottest temperatures recorded in the oceans between 18701919 look to how often the sees around the world beat that range in the years that followed. they found that in the year 1900,
5:12 pm
the oceans hit that peak less than one percent of the time. but by 2019 temperatures across the world sees be that record 57 percent of the time. animals like polar bears are watching their habitats disappear. the birds could bill, but last, by the end of the century, the heat is pushing species such as great white sharks into new waters. this means they other animals like theaters causing their decline, increases in the heat of the ocean. this is the main cause of cold bleaching. bleach reefs are more likely to die. the outlook for the oceans and the creatures living within them is a troubling one. vladimir benin is executive secretary of the inter governmental oceanographer oceanographic commission. enjoys us from the breast where the a one ocean sandwich has said, just ended a walk. would they w? is it too late to reverse the disastrous picture?
5:13 pm
we've just painted, melting ice caps and seeds overloaded with plastic and rising water temperatures. you know, you painted, painted the picture that is given us the different facets of what is happening and you know, you probably already saw that the picture is complex. indeed, certain things are already either simple and scientists call them kind of come meet that, for example, to level rise. we are committed to sea level rise, you know, so we are committed to acidity cation of the ocean and some other think some other things can be diverted. and that is exactly that, that this of the terrace agreement trying to reduce the emissions of carbon to reach the temperature 1.5 degree over the pre industrial values by the year to 2100 . so some of the things we can reduce are some we cannot be committed to this but different the emission should fall, understood, and what must governments and businesses do that in order to reach the goal that
5:14 pm
you have set. a safeguarding 30 percent of the world's oceans by 2030 i think to david each the or i would say milestone it least in lorton governments and shown to, to many governance of the or the other governments are committed to that noble gold 30 by 30. you know, but i would like to say we have to explain why this is needed. that money protected is actually enabling also use of the ocean and then benefiting people benefiting fishers feeding people. so we need to explain the benefits of this. so that selfish behavior is really not thing in this particular situation. on top of that, they have to create an understanding of what the sensitive data is that needs to be protected 1st. so this is not just a political game, but really, science based exercise, finding the right place to protect and finding the right ways to. and so what are
5:15 pm
you hearing the right things of what we're national represents is making the right noises at this meeting. you hopeful that you can not take this forward to the march meeting wed, give you've been decades of negotiation could end up with a treaty being signed. so yeah, the march meeting got you referring to is actually called in the mental conference on consideration sustainable use of money in by diverse to be on it is of national jurisdiction sort of for this long time. but basically, this is how perfect life in the high seas, which do not belong to the national jurisdiction. and this treat it in the hope it will be moved forward. i can't guarantee you that it will be signed, but you know, we have to state a significant i think step forward to the concluding the text over that agreement. that is almost ready. but we were basically held up by
5:16 pm
a corporate and we need to see people's eyes to, to just conclude on the text. and just just to end on the slightly negative note. what's the biggest to block then to agreement when, when everybody is agreed that the asked if i, the oceans are a bad thing, what, what's holding back agreement all this agreement and it has been discussed for more than 10 years, probably around, around 20 years. but i would like also to the cold that united nations convention below the sea was conceived after the 2nd world war. and then it was only signed in 1982. so i think the responsibilities of conscious, you know, they're the negotiations because they lead to an international legally binding him cancer really would like to know what will be the abbreviations on that commitment to understand what it means. and then they have to agree on the common, the common accepted test text. so this is indeed a big negotiation process like
