1:03 pm
a position to do the job by himself. 10000 people detained as you mentioned there. but today his speech was also about restructuring the security services, the police, the military, and the national state national security, putting him so very much in charge of those important instruments of power in the country. and robin, as we mentioned, there's been the appointment of a new prime minister. he served in the previous cabinet. so watched what change you expecting that well it's made of the has of course is coming is a continuation of that. he'll be doing the president's bidding because of course the president has the those powers to, to, to call, to call new governments to, to dismantle old ones and bring in new cabinets. the most important thing now is
1:04 pm
that so kind of actually for the 1st time went off in directly president the previous president, no time as a buyer. he didn't mentioned by name directly a criticism directly. but what he said was that people at the lead on the nasa by i've had made themselves very rich, very wealthy. they spend that money abroad and now it was time to bring that money home and to give it back to the people. so president polka has established or will establish a new fund that some of that money presumably will go into and this is the deal he's cutting with his predecessors, diagnostic legacy, the people who are his family members and, and as a buyer who have taken money out of the country now must bring it back and this is the deal that i took i this is cutting with them and presenting that to the catholic people. or i will say how it plays out. thank you very much. robin forest
1:05 pm
here. walk a live for us in georgia. okay, so let's take a closer look now at the ration led military lines that was sent in to cause it's done. it's called the collective security treaty organization. it was formed about 6 months after the collapse of the soviet union and is often described as eurasia in response to nature. the group includes russia along with 5 ex soviet republics. they conduct training exercises and oversee sales. but this was the 1st time in the organizations history where it deployed true to a member state. it refused several requests in the past, including from kurdistan back in 2010 and a mania. last year. article 4 of its charters says it'll only do so if the country is being threatened by an external force. all right, let's it bringing i janet shot chena, who's a research fellow at the o. s. c. e academy in bish kick. she joins us now from london. thanks for being on
1:06 pm
the program. i john. so as we just heard for the 1st time his organization has deployed troops to a member state. so what does moscow's presence in cars extend say about russia's influence in that country? in say, a question of the implication of article for by to class has been strategic on his side. because on one hand, he sends a very awful signal to the leaves, political and meets within the country that he enjoys. the support of gutierrez and the support of this. he has your alliance. on the other hand, he is definitely undermining the countries sovereignty and independence because he has invited practically point forces to control a domestic situation. he has been sending quite conflicting messages about the nature of the protest and the nature of the danger and the reasons behind his decision to invite the cfc or forces and even into these an address to the balance
1:07 pm
he's address was quite conflicting to so i'm on how he's referring to foreign terrorist. on the other hand, he is talking a lot about socio political economy before us within the country in a way to address our public grievances one way or another. so i think and so on. so for the russian presence, it was an awful message to both domestic leach and domestic audience, but also to st national audience, declaring because i found the car for teams allegiance to russia. and as we heard from our correspondent robin and to chi of blind his predecessor of the issues the country has been facing, i want to break it down into 2 questions. but 1st of all, he said that it was sort of creating a cost of wealthy a late. is it fair, a fair assessment that he blamed his predecessor for these problems? based on what is the information available that has been created by a whole bunch of investigative journalists?
1:08 pm
i think it is true. the allegations of bias regime in the last 50 years have created a cast or a group of 3 roles here. individual is true, but it's questionable to what extent has the right to clean so because he's for those individuals and he has been directly enrolled in the individual quite fall from the country. so it was some he's, he has the right to face or to believe in bias. it's quite questionable because he's part of the group is part of the bias for as well. and he's also appointed a prime minister that was a part of that previous cabinet. so do you think these new appointments will address these economic issues in cars? it's done, and will the public be happy with these appointments? i would love to see those guys for jim with actually address the sociopolitical and comic issues in the company. because honestly, inviting c a fuel horses to construct, adapt if you need to talk to domestic audience and address of the grievances. but
1:09 pm
even who is in power and you know how deeply rooted the power of the golf groups. and there's advise people in the hours. i think there's going to be very much challenging for his invention is indeed changing. and will, carfax be happy with these appointments? will this be enough? or will we likely see more protests going forward to be further prone to have been going on in the voice years of the bias regime? i don't think that appointment potential key is going to lead those public frustrations much unless a family feels very decided with the economy as a 3 week improvement of the life. i don't think that's a piece, protesting people from all right, thank you very much for your analysis. i john chevy live for us in london. thank you. thank you. the kremlin says he doesn't see any reason for
1:10 pm
optimism after the 1st round of talks with the us. the discussions were aimed at d escalating tension on new crimes for them. russia has spent the past few months, gathering its forces on ukraine's eastern flank, rising fees of an invasion. moscow ones guarantees that nato will not accept ukraine as a member. washington says it won't accept that demand journal home reports. it is an achievement of sorts. the talks between russia and the united states in geneva didn't end in failure. they were never likely to be a major success. but while russia insisted it had no intention of invading ukraine, there remains little sign of an immediate end to the crisis. it's not the situation we're ah, a deal breaker one way or another. he's in the vision. unfortunately, we have a great disparity in our principal approaches to these us and russia, in some ways, ah, have, or was it views on what needs to be done?
1:11 pm
us negotiators trod carefully, they promised they wouldn't be talk of ukraine security without ukraine present. this instead, a chance to air respective concerns and get a measure of russia's true intent with tensions at their highest since the end of the cold war points of dispute between russia and the u. s. are plentiful, but ukraine is perhaps most urgent. russia has supported a separatist conflict there for 8 years now, and the presence of a 100000 russian troops on ukraine's border threatens a new war in europe. russia wants legal guarantees that ukraine will never become a member of the nato alliance. a demand flatly rejected by western allies. on monday, ukraine's deputy prime minister met the nato secretary general talks with russia will widen on wednesday to include nato members in brussels. and then the o. s. c. e. in vienna,
1:12 pm
on thursday. what russia is doing is trying to impose its agenda instead of returning to the negotiation table. and we are state that very clearly, that we will never compromise on the right for every nation in you'd have to choose his own path, including what kind of security arrangements in want, sir, to be a part of earlier russia's deputy foreign minister said as did the u. s. had not taken seriously. his country's demand that ukraine never be allowed to join nato. that's an ominous sign by continuing to press what is a solid western red line. russia may be showing its hand that president putin may not intend this week of talks to succeed at all, but rather to use them as a pretext for war. joan, a whole al jazeera, the u. s. is skeptical of russia's insistence. it's not planning to invade ukraine . as our diplomatic editor james base heard from the american ambassador to the un
1:13 pm
ambassador, the deputy foreign minister of russia says they have no plans to invade ukraine. you are the u. s. official probably has more contact with the russians than any other you deal with them almost daily basis. do you believe him? i wish to believe him. i wish that it is true that they have no plans, but everything we've seen so far indicate that they are making motions in that direction. and if they have decided not to move forward because of our engagement with them over the course of the past few weeks with president biden speaking to president putin twice. ah, then that's a good thing. but we will continue to prepare and to plan for responding. should they take any actions against ukraine? north career, his fight is suspected ballistic missile. both japan and south korea detected a launch on tuesday morning with the projectile landing outside of japan's waters.
1:14 pm
north korean leader kim jong own has called from military advances. young ang says, a hypersonic missile was tested in an earlier launch. the u. n is launching its largest ever humanitarian appeal for a single country. it needs more than $5000000000.00 in aid for afghanistan. more than half the population, that's about 23000000 people face acute hunger. the un humanitarian chief says he's most worried about children welfare. some more is eunice, if chief of communications in afghanistan, she joins us live now from a couple. a 1000000 children where hearing are going to be impacted by these just talk us through the scale sam of what's unfolding then. yes, thank you. it's going to then is descending into the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world. the scale of suffering is quite unprecedented. and as you say,
1:15 pm
it's children and women, those who are least responsible for the crisis who are facing the brunt of these challenges. around half the population also understand 23000000 people are food insecure, which means that they cannot find or afford you tricia's food. and as you see over 1000000 of that number, our children and what you said is predicting that without urgent action, those children will suffer from severe acute malnutrition, which puts them at risk of dying in 2022. we think, but without action, one into children will be acutely malnourished. so the problems are huge. on top of that, i've got this done is facing the difficulties of climate change. we are experiencing the worst drought that the country has had for 27 years. we've got rising food prices, we've got tripling poverty, we've got rising unemployment. and all this against the backdrop of winter
1:16 pm
last night with minus 6 degrees centigrade. and i keep hearing from, from mothers, from the villagers that they don't have money for wounded for coal to keep their homes warm. and it is children who are suffering the most. and this is also not just about providing for what afghans need right now, but also about preventing that need from increasing in the coming 12 months. isn't that right? absolutely. we need to, we need to help those in need right now. we've got but 3 more months of winter, but we need to be planning for the rest of the year right now. and that's why today is a clarion call to the international community. this is an unprecedented crisis and it requires an unprecedented response. what would you say about consensus funding
1:17 pm
could be used to support the taliban script on the defective government in afghanistan, which funding goes directly to the people who need it? this is what the, you know, the un unicef does best. we are well positioned in afghanistan to reach people directly. we've been working here for over 70 years and we have a strong network of people, organizations of interviews that can help us get that money into the hands of those who need it. like the health workers, for example, at the moment, that is also scaling up the huge cash assistance program, which is the fastest and most dignified way to get assistance into the hands of those who need it. and because we have more access. now, post all this than we've ever had, we are going into communities that we haven't had access to for years and years. so
1:18 pm
that is part of the reason that the needs are increasing exponentially. what are the regional dimensions to this crisis, sam? well, the regional dimensions are that, you know, as we'll see, you economic challenges grew and disconnect this discontent. grow was then so people become increasingly desperate. and, and of course we're seeing arise in internal migration and we're seeing, you know, people going towards the borders. a few weeks ago i was talking to a doctor and bobby, and he was telling me that he had seen a 50 percent decrease in routine immunization because people were on the move so much. and so it's all the more urgent that we get aid and support to the people down a storm so that the stay in their communities because that's where the support network is. thank you very much for sharing your insights. as sam mod from unicef
