1:05 pm
to tell oliver off that western powers are all on the same side that they do not want to see a conflict with russia. they don't want to see russia invading ukraine, that ukraine has every right to sovereignty. and this has been the message all along. really, there are 2 paths that will be the message from the u. s. i could just say one is a part of diplomacy. one is a part of conflict and you know which side or western powers want to follow. the problem is though, that you have 2 sides. one, the western powers, one rush and they are still in very firmly, opposite positions. you have russia saying that are making these demands saying for example, that he wants ukraine never to become part of nato. you have on the other side, western power saying that is simply not possible that is a non starter. so it's very difficult to see where these 2 sides can come together to try and move forward. but that is the aim of this meeting. as i said,
1:06 pm
glen can saying that him what the u. s. wants to see if there is any room for any common ground. the sasha stay close at the moment. thanks so much natasha. about the they're talking to fly out of geneva live now to moscow and correspondent there is door. so jabari dos as far as the russians are concerned for them to the optics of this discussion, boil down to look, we are not giving in. we are not moving across our line in the sand at all. what we've got is demands that we're making all of you certainly, and we've been hearing from the foreign ministry as well as the kremlin on friday morning. and it's become much more clear of what the russians are expecting. first, they're not expecting any major breakthroughs. and also it's important to point out that the kremlin spokesperson just said that they are not expecting any official response from the americans. about those security guarantees that the russians have asked for. what this meeting will be about is talking about how the 3 rounds of
1:07 pm
talks on the negotiations about the security guarantees have gone so far. so it seems that the russians of also scaled back a bit of their expectations about what this will, what this meeting will deliver. they are saying that they expect to have a, an understanding of where things are heading according to the kremlin spokesperson dmitri pest called the russians, are expecting a written response from the americans next week, giving them a bit more time. and also seeing how this meeting goes to day, and as for the russian for mr. survey lover of he has said before the meeting began that a us washer russia relations are now at a critical point because of washington's actions. and that the, it will depend on how the u. s. proceeds from now on, and that will determine what happens to the relationship between the 2 sides. all this comes, of course, as the russians have sent at further military equipment to bel roof where they will carry out

1:09 pm
a critical moment. you're right. we don't expect to resolve our differences here today. but i do hope and expect that we can test whether the diplomacy or dialogue remains open. we're committed to walking that path into resolving our differences peacefully. and i hope we can test that proposition today and see where we go from here. thanks for bigger the the antony thinkin there the u. s. secretary of state. so with his opening comments, same directly at cirque elaborate, he said the bottom line is who we are expecting. we contest the path of diplomacy

earlier my colleague kim vanelle spoke to the tongue, an athlete peter tower, to foul, who was a flying barrier for his nation. at the 2020 olympics she began by asking him how his family in toner is doing. it's been a very, very anxious time. we've been up, we've been working quite hard. i just found out an hour ago that my father is okay . he's been on quite the adventure. straight up to the straight up to the knobby, it ended up on the navy vessel. went out at the age of 74 for our 1st contact, 1st a the out to the island and then found his way back just today. and he's a governor of a pyre. i. you must be very proud. yes, my very, very proud i when we didn't hear from him, we didn't hear of him. we were worry, but we kind of knew that if he'd be somehow he'd be out there in the middle of it
1:14 pm
all. and that's, that's where he was. i want to ask you, i mean, you made headlines at the, at the 2020 olympics and, and now you've launched a fundraising drive, talk us through decision making process of using the platform that you've got in the wake of, of this disaster. yes. so i created a gofundme page, told us to not be released by people. and i created that with been i had it within, within an hour of seeing the footage of the snobby actually did it. just before communication was cut. as soon as i saw the order, so i went, this is, this is not going to be good. there's going to be a lot of damage. i didn't know the exact amount of salvage at that time, but we started that fundraiser. and initially it was about schools and hospitals and now seeing what the need is in other areas where we're looking at how we
1:15 pm
can best provide initial aid, but also rebuilding aid over over the next coming months. and it looks like it's what's been like just the just strictly trying to get that money where it needs to go in the sort of immediate often it's been, it's actually been very challenging it's, it's not a quick process. and the reason isn't that the initial late that's gone across has been a strategy and you see what they did. that sense in that sense, in military ships, the military plane, 2nd to that container ships which is being sent across. so even even the, the, all of the work that was being done that is currently being done in oakland. what, what that meant is that our, our team is up, is out there and it's not so easy to get containers at this present moment. so we reached out to people in up by the hop islands which most effective and we've

1:17 pm

1:32 pm
includes areas the put moscow with an easy, striking distance of the capital key f. for the past age years, ukraine has been battling around 35000 russian backed rebels who control 2 of its eastern provinces. russia reportedly has military personnel stationed there, though the kremlin denies this. moscow was also deployed in crimea annex from ukraine in 2014. and there are fears and other front could open up on the board with bella rowse, after russia stepped up military drills last year. for priest put, he is a chief strategy officer at rasmussen, global, and formerly a director of policy planning at ne, so he joins us from santander in spain for pre spots. welcome back to the news our both sides and setting the bar pretty low here. so realistically, what's going to come out of these discussions beyond a pledge to keep on talking i figure just summarize the thing is
1:33 pm
i don't think there's an easy way out or an easy way here for both sides seems actually the essence of this crisis is artificial. it's really kind of hand made by . busy president putin who decided to escalate to try to squeeze some confession out of the united states and they thought that the president put in him 7. those may well, they cannot keep him. ok, so priest to stay with us. we just like to play you a clip now showing the us president joe biden change of tone to do with ukraine over the past couple of days. take a listen. it depends on what it does is when things reaches minor incursion, and then we end up having a fight about what to do and not do, et cetera. i will, i will assemble the russian units, move across ukrainian border. that is an invasion as a former nato planner if you'd still been working as an aid, so planner when people in brussels here that kind of thing from the us president do,
1:34 pm
they sort of metaphorically place their hands over their ears and they, they think of themselves oh no, why is he set up or is it just something that is not bad to have it out there because he's just being perfectly honest. exactly. i mean that's the problem is that difference? because we're talking about the difference, a signaling to basically russia, the cost of doing certain things. he's both has to be an extremely clear business, but he's also very nuanced. because obviously you are not going to respond to a small military on the line to be in the same way you would respond to a dramatic the enormous media or invasion and nuanced point that because it on by the and tried to do whether you should have done it during a press conference when all eyes and ears on what he said, i think that may have been his mistake. but and he clearly kind of walked back and
1:35 pm
established a red line that if anything happens, there would be a response. but the reality is, especially the euro pen, they want to see what other kind of proportionate response. busy to sanctions, or military responses that could be proposed to let whatever rush that we do. and that's where the calls that the bases ok as to what might happen as a reaction to a possible russian invasion. we've been covering live here on this program. mister lincoln sitting opposite survey elaborate mister blinking has in the past few minutes, and i quote said, there will be a united swift and a severe response. forgive me, february's, if i sound a little bit skeptical here. vladimir putin has been president of russia since 1999 . he has literally rewritten the constitution following a referendum. he could be there until 20. 36. nothing has touched him. what can nieto do? what can the e you do? that will stop him invading ukraine?
1:36 pm
well, it's a very good question and that's the one we have been charged. me wait for for some years now. however, i'm not as typical as you are, because i think the you and us sanctions that were put in place since 2014, when russia invaded ukraine. actually those sanctions have surprised the russians. not so much because they are potent but because they're there. and even though the russians always say they don't carry, does not impact that they couldn't work for me. every time you meet them, they actually try to open countries to lift those sections. so thanks tons matter because they show a united front and they do her, somebody can trip. so i think the voice, the response would be mostly in terms of economic factions that could be actually extremely debilitating of some key financial players in russia and could hurt some of the present i'm putting on a credit contract. so i will not underestimate that,
1:37 pm
but where you are right is putting either mercurial figure, who is willing to take on the cost that we democracies are not always willing to take. so he's willing to sell the shirts and risk and costs. and this is way for and this is where we are kind of struggling to change his behavior. ok, we must leave it there for pres. thank you so much for talking to us here on the the united nations is appealing for support to speed up the recovery efforts in the philippines after the devastation caused by typhoon roy. last month. the storm killed more than $400.00 people, another warnings about disease and starvation. jamila adding doggone has more typhoon right, caused extensive damage in the vis sayas and the men in our region in december known locally as a debt. it killed at least $400.00 people and displaced millions survivors see the damage is comparable to that of super tight for now young. in 2013 the world's
1:38 pm
strongest storm on record. according to the united nations, more than 2000000 people are still in dire need of assistance and access to food, shelter and medicine remains limited. hundreds of towns are still without power and warning water in the province of southern liter. around 90 percent of tourism facilities have been damaged. the situation and the island of sher gao, another to his destination, is no different the devastation, the real, the recovery of communities that were slowly bouncing back from the economic recession brought about by the pandemic, the craziest with in crisis, and it's on pop. one on top of the other is like compounded the more we, we do the analyses, the more we find out that there are more needs,
1:39 pm

with the music written for him. jim steinman wrote sir the back, a lot of the batter of hell album and, and, and he performed as well with share on, in the same vein of music. so that was a perfect fit. but oddly, at a time when that album was released, i think it was what 7677 punk rock was huge. the new romantic movement was coming in. but there was still a place for 89 minutes long singles tracks being played on national broadcasters because they were still an appetite there in the appetite went with children, parents, mums and dads, everybody liked the music. yes, absolutely. he was a force of nature and he swam against the tide, pretty much the whole of his professional life. you know? because when the 2nd ballot and album came out, branch was just starting out, you know, and it was again very, very unfashionable sort of a sound for the period. but so he was just to launch himself or he always worse.
1:45 pm

1:51 pm
a lot of work. i think it's a golden age in the respect that tv has become such a massive cultural force. during the pandemic box office revenues have dwindled drastically. and some of the art, how cinemas were independent films found their audiences were forced to close. even with all the disruptions caused by the kobe pandemic, declining ticket sales, and the rise of streaming services industry observers say, independent filmmakers will continue to do what they've always done, adapt and roll with the punches. every indie film has some kind of jaw dropping story attached to it in terms of what it took to make it. you've got to be nimble, you've gotta be quick. you've gotta be passionate. and quite frankly, you've got to work harder and longer and not quit. and not give up. that's why maxi is looking on the bright side. the virtual festival thing is interesting because it
