6:02 am
a russian invasion into ukraine. i've been absolutely clear with president putin. he has no misunderstanding. addie any assembled russian units, move across ukrainian border. that is and invasion. but they're normally met with severe and coordinated economic response. it comes as the white house spent the day cleaning up his wednesday night remarks. stunning european allies by suggesting a lesser response to a smaller scale invasion. if it invades it depends on what it does. it's one thing if richer, minored, corrosion, and then we end up having to fight about what to do and not to which cetera who not from barbara grains president vladimir zalinski, fired back on twitter, lasting biden's comments. we want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations litski tweeted,
6:03 am
just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones, i say this as the president of a great power, ah biden statements of a potential russian invasion of ukraine have exposed the divisions and doubt about the united states commitment among european allies. there is concern among allies that the u. s. if you don't have did not have the will to follow through on our own . u. s. lead activity in afghanistan. how much are they sure that we will falls room, protecting our eyes, and how much are we willing to protect the non allies when you're european security is in the balance. u. s. secretary of state antony blinkin is in geneva for a meeting with russian foreign minister, sir. gala rav russia is seeking to halt and nato expansion and membership for ukraine. moldova, the u. s. will not provide such assurances,
6:04 am
but instead will encourage diplomacy to resolve security differences. there is new urgency to the negotiations. president biden warned, with russian troops position close to ukraine's border. he believes russian president vladimir putin intends to attack, and a russian invasion of ukraine may be in. kimberly help get al jazeera, the white house. when you're a sector of state anthony blinking has been in berlin. the head of friday's meeting with survey lab brought in geneva. he met with foreign minister officials and germany, france and the u. k. together with the u. s. they're promising a swift and severe response to any russian aggression against ukraine. germany's foreign minister coven moscow to take urgent steps towards de escalation in as i get is only sweeney gum. nothing less is at stake than the preservation of peace in europe. this is existential for us, which is why we have no choice but to defend it firmly, unprotected with
6:05 am
a shield on the supplies explicitly even if it could have economic consequences for us. well, let's get the view from both keys and mos colin. those developments amount to 0 correspondence with ukrainians have been closely monitoring the flurry of diplomatic efforts over the past few weeks. as this crisis has been deepening. after all, this is a conflict that has caused this country more than 14000 lives, and add to that more than 1400000 people who are internally displaced. but beyond that, you don't get the feeling that people are worried about an imminent russian invasion, despite all the rhetoric they hear back from their own leadership, or indeed european and american politicians. now, people would tell you that this is actually not the right time for russia to cross the border. they say that the situation is different than back in 2014. they said
6:06 am
that the army, the ukrainian army now is much more capable, is much better equipped. it has received a training, so they feel that they are much more confident now and that russia knows exactly that. russia's foreign ministry is very clear about what they're hoping to achieve from the meeting on friday in geneva. that is, they want to take the next steps on negotiations on security guarantees that they're asking the american government about the possibility of nato expanding further eastward, as well as not allowing ukraine to join the military alliance. that is something that is very much a red line for this country. so that's the official position here. but what do or near russian think about the ongoing tensions. we ask them people here in the capital in years where they had to say, yeah, the move to women, you put, i think there will be no war. it seems to me that we have the situation from time to time because authorities need to keep people up with something apart from coded,
6:07 am
put his rating is just going down the video and we're, it is possible that property nations will ever start this war. i wouldn't one t because why, what for to prove war and to whom i stand for peace when you, when you tell us the cable news net, why is the tool need it? i wish we don't make war, especially with the ukraine. we are brothers. indeed, that's all i can tell you as a world way to find out what happens in geneva on friday. many here are hoping that diplomacy and dialogue can continue to be forward to try and de escalate the looming crisis. now the u. s. department of justice is charged for government officials, some bella roost with aircraft piracy for diverting a ryan air flight. last may. the plane was flying from greece to lithuania when it was forced to london, minced by bell or russian fighter jet. better roosters accused of faking a bummer to force the aircraft down. so the government critic on board could be arrested. it's brigand, steven nicks, his regional director for eurasia,
6:08 am
the international republican institute. he joins us live from washington, d. c. steven said these for bella. russians have been charged with aircraft piracy . how significant business and why is the u. s. taking the step? now, do you think? well, it's very significant. there's 2 salient points here. first is principle. the 2nd is timing. from the principal standpoint, this is exactly what the west needs to do to stand up to the authoritarian regime in baylor bruce. although these 4 individuals have been charged in us district court and you were the real perpetrator, here is alexander lucas shanker. these 4 individuals are acting on his orders. so this is an important message that the west is sending, that they're not going to tolerate, ah, air piracy, which is a legal term used to denote hi jackie. it's intolerable, and the west need to take stutter top. stand on this. the 2nd is, jaime. i think the timing is important because this comes at the same time that
6:09 am
they loosen, and russian military units are engaged in joint exercises on ukraine's northern order. to further to stabilize the situation and intimidate them. i mean, it is, it is an interesting stephen because the u. s. justice department has already said these 4 men remain at lodge in better routes. the chances of them ever facing trot in the u. s. a practically zeros is this many symbolic well difficult, but not impossible. it's conceivable. if these individuals ever set foot outside of a roof into any of the e u countries, they could be held, arrested and then remanded over for trial in the southern district of new york. so yes, it's certainly possible. ah, whether it's probably not. we'll have to see, but these gentlemen will not be able to leave a roof prover. yeah, and it's, it's a, it's worth pointing out that the plane that was forced to land in minsk was a ryan at past the jet based in europe. so why charge has been fall in new york?
6:10 am
i mean, this wasn't even a u. s. owned aircraft. yes. well the u. s. attorney is based. these are charges and jurisdiction upon the fact that for. busy busy american citizens were on board the ryanair flight. so in, from a legal standpoint, this is certainly a sound legal argument to gain jurisdiction. statement that the final point to you . i mean, at the time the incident sparked international outraged didn't it in the u. s. u. k . and e, you impose sanctions on better. ruth, what are the broader international implications of this case in terms of aircraft piracy and international law? sure, well, this is an issue that is, it goes beyond the baylor root situation. you're talking about international air piracy. and if lucas shanker was allowed to get away with other dictators in the region, could be tempted to do the same. so it's important to take a tough stand against this elicit corrupt and cruel regime. that's what the u. s.
6:11 am
is doing. we hope and expect our european partners to do the same even next when i got to get your insight. thank you very much and thanks for talking to us. thank you for having. sedans, military chief, has appointed 15 government ministers falling a visit by u. s. officials to end the countries political crisis, general abdel photography han agreed to form a technocratic government and begin a national dialogue. sedans, ruling counselor promised to amend the documents governing its transition to democracy. thousands protested against military rule. demanding a civilian lead government, at least 71 protest as i've been killed since it was overthrown in october, including 7 this week at least 17 people have died in an explosion. the western gonna police say a truck carrying explosives between 2 gold mines, collided with a motorcycle rescue team say most victims have been moved to hospitals in the back go. so district people being advised to evacuate the area nearby. towns are opening

6:23 am
a vaccine passes are necessary and coherent development. it's necessary if we want to preserve and, and crease our vaccination coverage in the event of new variance. it's coherence because it clearly puts constraints on the on vaccinated. and therefore, we will be able to lift the measures thought we have taken to counter the latest wave. hello, austria has become the 1st european country to make coven 19 vaccines, compulsory for people over 18. the lower house of parliament passed the measure on thursday. from mid march, police will start random checks with $680.00 fines for those who aren't vaccinated . the measures are set to be in place for 2 years. tens of thousands of been protesting against the plans, as they were announced in november. in the u. k, the hell secretary sent a job and says the country needs to learn to live with coven. 19 england is scrapping all current virus measures meant to combat the amik wrong there. and vaccine certificates, mandatory mosque wearing and shops and guidance to work from home. and next week, some hospitals in england continued to go over well know,
