2:03 pm
areas in 2014, russia will also reiterate its demand that ukraine never becomes a member of nato. moscow wants a military alliance out of eastern europe and a ban on intermediate range missiles. however, the u. s. and it's nato allies say they won't block ukrainian membership. they want russia to pull its troops back from the border. on a moment will get reaction from moscow with those jabari, but 1st is going to natasha butler, who is following these talks in geneva. so, natasha, i mean, the russian foreign minister already said he doesn't expect any breakthroughs. i mean, it's not exactly a vote of confidence before things kick off. is it no sunny setting, a very pessimistic tone. indeed like a lateral saying, not expecting any breakthroughs, but that's not unexpected. because going into this meeting, what we do know is that this is a meeting aimed at trying to find a common ground,
2:04 pm
the least those words of us a secretary of state antony bank. and this is a meeting to see whether or not there might be a door that could open to more diplomacy, because that of course, would be preferable to conflict. we've had both a blinking and buys and warning that russia could be a ready to invade ukraine at any moment. you are secretary of state there at the beginning of those talks very much in laying out the rest his position, talking about the fact the western powers were united and would be nighted in a severe response. i, if russia were to invade ukraine, what we are seeing here in these talks, as they begin is 2 sides that are really deeply entrenched in their positions. weaver have russia making demands of western powers, saying for example, that he, they do the moscow does not want ukraine to become part of nato. on the other side you have, you are saying that is simply not possible. it is
2:05 pm
a non starter. it is hard to see how these 2 sides may come close together, but of course, that is what these talks are aimed at doing and thought about now thank you. i. before we go to dos and moscow, let's listen and 1st to rushes, foreign minister. so gay lever of we do not expect to break through these gay stations either what we expect is concrete answers to our concrete proposals in the vein and in compliance with the obligations that were adopted at the highest level within the we see everything particular to the principal of the indivisibility of security, as well as the obligation of countries not to strengthen their security at the expense of security of others. we would very much be interested to listen to how the u. s. interpret these obligations and these principles let's bring and jabari who's in moscow. russia wants assurances about nato not expanding right. will it be open to any sort of compromise?
2:06 pm
it seems very unlikely at this point that this country is willing to compromise on anything they have a very long list of demands that the top of that is, of course, nato of withdrawing its troops from the 2 countries that joined after 1997. that is romania bulgaria, and their adamant that they don't want and the nato forces and the americans to use this current situation as a excuse to further build up troops alongside the border with russia. they believe that there is a campaign of misinformation going on and that the russian troops alongside the board of, with ukraine are there to carry out military drills as they have been over the past 2 months. and that there is no threat to ukraine and they are not interested in invading ukraine. as for bell a roost. they have said that the russians are sending military equipment there because they are going to hold joined drills with the government there in february
2:07 pm
for 10 days. and that is the reason that there are seeing movements alongside the that border. and there is really no threat to ukraine. what is a threat to russia? they believe is the excuses that are being used by the ukranian government as well as the americans to try and create this campaign of misinformation which illustrates how a sensitive the situation is at the moment. there really is concern that diplomacy must be the path forward and the russian foreign minister and said that they were at this meeting in geneva to try and discuss what has come out of the 3 rounds of talks they've had about negotiating on the security guarantees that they're looking for from the americans, and that they really are not expecting any major breakthroughs today, but they are expecting a response from the american government in the coming days. and next week, we also have been hearing from the kremlin spokesperson, who said that they are really not very optimistic at this point,
2:08 pm
and they will be waiting for an official response. they want written guarantees that nato will not expand further eastwards dawson to bar their life. force and moscow. thank you. i'll hear from what i bel hamid in care of in a moment. but 1st i listened to the u. s. president's change of tone on ukraine of the last couple of days. it depends on what it does. it's one thing if richard martin cruise, you know, then we end up having a fight about what to do and not do, etc, etc, any assemble, rushing units, move across and grading border. that is an invasion at his hot, although he needs it give. i think he crane would want to see further what's gonna happen. and next specially was the outcome of that meeting in geneva later today. i mean, ukrainians probably are quite confused about the different messages coming out of the biden administration. i, when you are
2:09 pm
a secretary of state anthony blinkin was here just 2 days ago. he was quite adamant that they will be no decision about ukraine without ukraine. so i think the authorities here would be, it would watch very closely at what is going to be said after that meeting. and then obviously these changing and shifting positions coming from president joe biden. i certainly didn't sit well here yesterday at the ukrainian president followed the mir zelinski actually treated that there was no minor incursion. there was no minor country and they were no minor casualties. that is quite clearly a rebuff to what president joe biden had said a day earlier. so i think that is that and also ukrainians want to make sure that this really doesn't turn out to be something between a do you as an russia them on,
2:10 pm
grew agreeing about the way forward when it comes to the security of europe when it comes to the expansion of nato into eastern europe, but actually that they say focus on ukraine itself. very spotty air is a former director of policy planning and nature. he explains what can be done to stop russia when fading ukraine. i think the you and us sanctions that were put in place since 2014, when russia invaders ukraine actually does sanction have surprised the russian not so much because they are putting but because there and even though the russians always say they don't carry, does not in fact that they couldn't work for me every time you meet them, they actually try to open countries to leave those section. so thanks to matter because they show a united front and they do hurt somebody critic interest. so i think the voice, the response would be mostly in terms of economic fashion that could be actually
2:11 pm
extremely debilitating of some key financial players in russia and could hurt some of the things on economic contract. so i would not them very to make that. but where you are right is putting either mercurial figure, who is willing to take on the costs that we democracies are not always willing to take. so he's willing to absorb a certain risk of cost, and this is wade. and this is where we are kind of struggling to change his behavior. tom in new zealand has come out in big numbers to send aid supplies home following saturday volcanic eruption. and so you know me more government aid is also arriving and toner from new zealand and australia when a report. oakland is the world's largest polynesian city, and tomlins came out in big numbers to support their relatives and friends. back home and aid center has been set up for people to send food, water, and other items to toner, and to show unity and resilience. muffin summer and bring all local country down,
