7:05 am
of the supplies explicitly, even if it could have economic consequences for us. well, that's good. what else got the view now from kim and moscow on those developments, some onto zeros correspondence so that ukraine is 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 cost 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 may hear back from their own leadership or indeed european and american apollo dishes. now, people will tell you that this is actually not the right time for russia to cross the border. they say that the situ is different, and back in 2014,
7:06 am
they said 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 the ordinary russians think about the ongoing tensions we ask them, people here in the capital and here's what 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 coated
7:07 am
metal pushes, rating is just going down near thing where i don't believe it's possible that property nations where ever start this war. i wouldn't warranty because why? what for to prove war and to whom are stand for peace? no one ever. when you tell us the trouble news now, why is the tool need it? i wish we don't make war, especially with ukraine. we are brothers and div. that's all i can tell you as the world waits the find out what happens in geneva on friday. many here are hoping that diplomacy and dialogue can continue to be the path forward to try and de escalate the lumen crisis. the u. s. department of justice is charged for government officials, some better routes with aircraft piracy for diverting iran 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. but a rooster accused of faking a bummer le, to force the aircraft down so that a government critic on board could be arrested. but stephen nixon's on the
7:08 am
international republican institute, he says this is a significant step by the u. s. there's 2 salient points here versus principal. the 2nd is timing. from the principal standpoint. this is exactly what the west needs to do. the stand up to the authoritarian regime in bay loose. although these 4 individuals have been charged in us district court in new york, 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 descending, 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 stuff. stand on this. the 2nd is, jaime. i think the timing is important because this comes at the same time that bail rosen and russian military units are engaged in joint exercises on ukraine's northern order to further to stabilize the situation and intimidate him. it's
7:09 am
conceivable. if these individuals ever set foot outside of bail roost 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 whether it's probably not. we'll have to see, but these gentlemen will not be able to leave a bail. ruth prover us attorney is based these are charges and jurisdiction are upon the fact that for. busy american citizens were on board the ryanair flight. so if from a legal standpoint, this is certainly a sound legal argument to gain jurisdiction. now the 1st shipments of international aid have arrived in tongue 5 days after it was shaken by a volcanic eruption and synonymy ash was cleared from the runaway to military plains, from australia, new zealand land with essential supplies. more aid is now on the way and the phone lines are slowly being restored. authorities have confirmed 3 deaths and extensive
