2:05 am
we're trying to get some form of decision that might help them in their individual states. but in the event, what's been decided is to wait, we know what's going to be on the table. we know that the incoming chance and all of shots wants to see what's called in germany and inflate a mandatory vaccine requirement for everyone who has not had one will have to have what he wants, the new parliament to vote on that. he is also in favor of reducing the length of time that a person's vaccine status actually will apply. so the moment in germany, it's a 12 month period. he wants the vaccine status of a person only to last 6 months, which is far shorter than what the e u has proposed recently of 9 months. or uganda is deploying troops across the border into democratic republic of congo as a battles and armed glue. it follows asked rice against the allied democratic forces, part of a joint operation with the congolese army young group is based in eastern congo and

2:07 am
they've been responsible for a series of math because again, civilians in and around the town of benny and more recently, further to the north in a, to re proven the congolese army i brought in what it called a state of siege 6 months ago supposedly to stabilize north tv province and to re province. but there's been criticism that the state of siege hasn't worked. linked documents showed that there was corruption. some of the military budget for the operation was being stolen. recently, con condos. parliamentarians have been calling for another kind of solution and uganda military entering east in congo with what they hope will bring an end to this conflict. but certainly others are very skeptical about the following. you've gotten the invasion of congo in $996.00 and accusations of repeated meddling and funding rebel groups ever since then. a definitely let some people to worry that this will cause instability rather than bringing stability to 8th. and kang k. a u

. s. secretary of state says any russian aggression in ukraine will trigger what he calls serious consequences. anthony, blinking his meeting nato foreign ministers to talk about the build up of russian troops on ukraine's border. bernard smith reports from moscow, nato. foreign ministers say there will be a high price to pay for any new military aggression against ukraine. and moscow was reminded the west has already used economic, financial and political sanctions. we have seen the rushes playbook many times over . an part of their playbook is to attempt to create ah, and manufacturer, a so called provocation as justification for something that rushes planning to do all along. i and so whether or what's been reported fits into that playbook. oh, i dont know. ukrainian forces are facing off against russian back separatists in the east of the country. there's been fighting on and off there since russia annex
2:09 am
crimea, from ukraine in 2014. now for the 2nd time this year, russian troops are building up along ukraine's border. moscow dismisses as inflammatory. any suggestions? it's preparing for an attack. and present, vladimir putin says he has his own red lines. if nato countries involve themselves further in ukraine, it is some kind of strike systems appear on the territory of ukraine. the flight time to moscow will be 7 to 10 minutes and 5 minutes in the case of a hypersonic weapon being deployed. creating such threats in ukraine poses red lines for us, but hope it doesn't come to that. i hope that a sense of common sense responsibility for both our countries and the world community will prevail. russia says nato has deployed a significant amount of military hardware near its borders. in june, joe biden and vladimir putin held their 1st summit. it came just a couple of months after
2:10 am
a russian troop of build up along the border with ukraine. now here's another build up, and the kremlin says it's holding behind the scenes talks with the white house about another possible summit. the biden administration says it doesn't know of any plans, but it does say it's been holding talks with russian officials about you. cray, bernard smith, al jazeera moscow last spring, and marcus macowski. now to talk more about this, he is a non resident senior fellow at the atlantic council joint council joining us via skype now from washington. thank you for being with us. let me ask you, 1st of all, what are the chances of this point based on what we know so far that russia is, will in fact invade ukraine? no, i think that the risk of crisis is real and it's growing. i think the scale of the russian escalation and mobile invasion of forces to the tune of over
2:11 am
a 100000 with artillery intelligence enablers. logistics has surprise us officials and also has raised the concern that this is much more serious than the russian mobilizations in march. and april, so i still believe that present improvement seeking political concessions from ukraine and is frustrated with ukraine. but his willingness to use force and of course, mobilized and such a significant manner. and from what i have seen, may be a re invasion of the scale, much larger than what occurred in 2014, in terms of ukranian territory that he could seize, to obtain his concessions. makes this fundamentally different risk for the west and for ukraine, and i absolutely believe it's a very serious issue that could escalate in their coming weeks. when you mentioned 2014 year, you're talking, of course about when russia seized the crimea peninsula from ukraine. given that given what was seen as kind of a need to response from, from,
2:12 am
from the western europe. and the united states on that is president putin banking on the same type of reaction if he were to, to take more aggressive moves against ukraine. you know, i think a lot of people are asking, you know, why would president couldn't do this? and, and one question responses, why not? and i think why not, as is his view, that the western response will likely be limited to economic sanctions. economic sanctions at present improvement believes he has weathered since brushes invasion of ukraine in 2014. he sees a favorable international environment, which is marked by european lack of unity on russia, a german chancellor, that his departed, that was willing to stand up and be strong on russian b, a voice of leadership to engage and deter moscow. i think he sees an us administration that is distracted by
2:13 am
a range of domestic and international issues to include co good to include china and obviously a whole other range of international security issues. and i also think he believes that the ukrainians are relatively weak and i saw it. so i don't necessarily believe that is correct. but in his assessment now is a good opportunity to put additional pressure on ukraine extract and sessions. and at best use force of those potential concessions are not graded, of course. and is counting on is that he is going to get our attention here in washington and in brussels. and that there would be pressure placed on ukraine to fulfill the immense to obligation that it committed to in 2015 under force of arms by russia. what assistance then can, can nato offer to the ukraine the, the longer this goes on and more aggressive, russia becomes in this area. so that's clearly what's up for discussion. i think there's been serious talks with european allies, with nato,
2:14 am
to include secretary blinking discussions in the baltic this week at the nato, for ministerial. what would the u. s. and they to do in response of course, ukraine is not a nato ally, so i believe that whatever military assistance would be limited in terms of nato engagement would be limited to nato allied territory. i don't see the nato alliance providing any significant equipment to ukraine or providing stationing of any forces in ukrainian responses. i do see potentially bilaterally, the united states and other allies potentially providing more defense assistance, due grain in terms of what it need to defend against russian aggression. unfortunately, that's probably going to be too little too late. whatever capabilities are provided are going to be very difficult to match with the with what russia is put on the border. i think mostly what you're going to see is economic sanctions and restrictions to include potentially sec torrell sanctions on the russian economy. on the banking system, obviously, potentially on the kremlin,
2:15 am
and president putin himself, in response to a potential escalation in the grain could to get your thoughts on this marker. macowski, thanks to me was thanks around the door. i'd still ahead on edge 0. ah, a cry for change rings out around cartoon. protest is angered by she danced military takeover march on the presidential palace. iran ceased to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal. we'll have more on what's going on in vienna. ah hey there, here's your headlines for the americas on wednesday, december, the 1st we've had our 3rd atmospheric river slammed into the west coast of canada,
