africa to provide education, to thousands of children left out of school ah, bottom to the play. joe biden is expected to speak this out to ukraine's president of lauderdale zalinski about the build up of russian troops at his border. on tuesday, the u. s. president had a virtual summit where the russia, vladimir putin, who said he has no plans to invade ukraine. biden has threatened to moscow with severe economic sanctions. if the attack happens, charles ratford is in cash on the in southern ukraine, josephina joe biden expected to call ukraine's president. i mean, what's ukraine's president likely to want to hear charles ways likely to want to hear more support from the u. s. president and from nato
8:02 pm
allies or ukraine's nato partners. i'm, of course there is incredible pressure on ukraine. and certainly analysts are saying that they foresee president biden is having no option but to try and get some sort of concessions out of the ukrainians because of the amount of pressure put on a ukraine. and indeed nato, by president putin. those tens of thousands of russian troops across the board as an analyst saying that they expect a president biden to possibly ask zalinski to at least start some sort of dialogue with the separatists in the dorm bass region. that's something, for example, that zelinski has always refused to do because in the granite governments mind that would give some sort of legitimacy to what they describe as a terrorist organization. there's also speculation as to whether biden may actually put more pressure on zelinski to start implementing the cranium side,
8:03 pm
all the minsk, to agreement, that agreement that was signed in 2015 that both sides, both russia and ukraine, accuse each other of not implementing and and i think also it's fair to say that said that could well be pressure on zalinski for biden, to possibly even pull back from some of the insistence on as immediately as possible and nato membership. and we've already heard from nato members, including, i'd in the us saying that russia has no right to make decisions on behalf of who should join nato and who shouldn't. but so many analysts is saying that the us now should be forcing zelinski to be more realistic because of the situation on the ground air. i think can the general mass it is, is that biden leads to put pressure on zalinski without being seen as conceding to
8:04 pm
watch the u. s. nato and ukraine continued to describe as being russian aggression . and of course, pardon me, charles, for the past few weeks, you've been monitoring the security situation in that contested area. i mean, what is security like at the moment to in your part of ukraine? very mind that the front line or the contact zone, as it's known, is more than 400 kilometers long. and there are daily c spy violations by both sides. and i think it's a, it's being reported as well that we have seen an escalation in the last few weeks, according to the oh, i see that's the one i think the security and cooperation in europe, the monitors these violations just gave you an example on december the 7th, the o s. c, saying that there were around 200 cease violations along the contact zone and around 60 explosions. i mean, that shows you just how fraught the situation can be. certainly according to what
8:05 pm
we've seen in this area is we've seen no obvious sign of a ukranian troops build up. and that said, despite the rushes accusation saying that the ukrainians have out to half their military deployed in this area. ready but as i say, yes, the situation does remain, it's calm, certainly there's no visible sign of it once you move immediately back from the front line. but sir, yes, the situation is tense. one thing though, that is for sure that we can guarantee coming from this conversation, that biden is going to have from zelinski is continued support for nato forces to train the ukrainian army. however, there is one unit of ukraine in on forces that despite being very effective in their battling of pro russian separatists nato says it will not support because of its alleged neo fascist,
8:06 pm
am neo fascist allegiances. and we went down to their training units, their training camp a couple of days ago. and this is what we found that these soldiers are members of what used to be a pro ukrainian government. a paramilitary group called the as of battalion. critics said, as of was a neo nazi group unit, started in 2014 as a volunteer organization and quickly developed a fierce reputation for fighting pro russia separatists. defending the port city of murray awful. in december that year as off was incorporated into the ukrainian national guard. it now has over a 1000 soldiers. you recruit must pass a 5 week basic training course that instructors say is so grueling. only around half get through. walkers offered fairly though christ. i am proud to be a member,
8:07 pm
we are an elite regiment. we have proven ourselves as number one and all the armed services. we are very motivated, even the enemy knows who we are and is afraid of us. the government supplies weapons, ammunition tanks and armored personnel. carriers like this one would around 80 percent of the men's kit and material for this training camp is bought with donated money. it's been 7 years since the as of brigade were incorporated into ukraine's national guard under the ministry of interior. but command is here say that the unit is still struggling to shade a reputation of having far right or even fascist leanings. these allegations, the commanders staunchly deny, but they acknowledge that it's the main reason why nato forces refused to train them. alongside the ukranian army critic say the underlying philosophy of the regiment has not changed. they say it's part of a far right movement,
8:08 pm
bled by this man. andre b litski, who was its 1st commander, and who now leads the national court follow right, political party accused of having links to white supremacist groups. i think it's completely absurd to claim that there is no relationship between the regiment and the broader as our movements. ukraine's primary western allies are all the western allies are very especially now attuned to the issue of members. alright, extremists, in, in the military and any military. and they are very much not keen to be to associated with the as a badge resembles the wolf's angle, which is warned by nazi infantry divisions in world war 2. there's been pressure in the us congress to declare as of a terrorist organization. but the regiments leader says it has distance itself from

8:20 pm
a virtual summit to address the issue more than 100 countries on taking part. but russia and china have not been invited, but countries have denounced the meeting and accuse washington of cold war mentality and stoking divisions. in my view, this is the defining challenge of our time democracy. government of the people by the people for the people can of time be fragile, but also is inherently resilient, is capable of self correction and is capable of self improvement. and yes, democracy's heart, we all know that it works best with consensus and cooperation. busy a winehouse corresponding kimberly elk, it has moved from washington d. c. there's no question that there is an enormous challenge here and given the fact that many of the countries participating have a agreed to sort of authoritarian tendencies. in some cases, the challenge to come up with consensus and some sort of joint statement out of
8:21 pm
this that can actually be actionable is what everyone is watching and wondering and, and the question really becomes to what can be accomplished by a virtual meeting. and this is something that he is committed to, and you heard him talking there about some of the challenges that are faced in particularly in the united states, where he says that democracy works best. when parties that oppose one another can sit down and work together. and there really are very few examples in the united states where that is actually achieved, if anything, the divisions only seem to be more pronounced with each us election. keeping in mind, the images of many republicans tried to overturn the outcome of the 2020 us election on january 6th. so these are the challenges for the u. s. president. he believes that the united states, while flawed, is still the best model of democracy and hopes to lead by example. but given the fact that there are so many inconsistencies between what the president is saying
8:22 pm
and what is actually happening in the united states, whether it's freedom of the press or whether it's the rule of law, given the fact that there is such an equality particularly and do as justice system when it comes to racial minorities. this is the challenge for the u. s. president, so he's moving forward. he's making the case that this can be worked on collectively, even as he acknowledges rather humbly that the united states has its own flaws. will china accused us of political manipulation for getting ahead with the something it's even going so far as to call it a joke. katrina, you house more or what things in got so according to beijing, this summit is about promoting us self interest and making sure that the u. s. stays on top of the world stage. now china has many reasons to be angry. one of the foremost is that it was not one of the more than 100 countries or regions invited to attend this summit. and they took issue with that. and they were further infuriated by the invitation, extended to taiwan, which china considers

8:24 pm
muslim wiggers as well as people working in the media. so i guess again, education is something that he takes for granted, but it's out of reach for millions around the world. for countries in africa have parliament where they can't all based foundation to provide a primary education to hundreds of thousands of the most marginalized children. between gaping because the story. zanzibar minister of education signs a pledge in the katara, capital, doha, that has the potential to change the lives of tens of thousands of vulnerable children by ensuring that all enrolled in full time primary education in the semi autonomous region of tanza, near some of his kids go, they come from poor families, but if they can make a difference to the lives they might become political leaders, social leaders, or entrepreneurs in the society in the future. and i think that is where we need to understand that for these kids will be sent back to school. they should not be denied. they are primary and secondary education. rwanda, the gambia, angie beauty,
