battles at numerous army barracks all add to growing uncertainty in a country whose president seems conspicuous by his absence. assurances that president rog mark christian color is fine and still in charge may not be enough to satisfy many in a country that seen at least half a dozen koos or attempted cruise since independence. in 1967. i strongly deny. first of all, the head of state has not been detained. no institution of the country's been threatened. so as i said, these movements a localized, they are circumscribed, and we're following the evolution of those movements. the security operations began in earnest a day earlier as police class with anti government protesters who blamed the government for failing to deal with armed groups. in brooklyn, foster the defense minister characterized it as putting down an uprising. the
8:03 pm
protesters say the groups affiliated with kindness and eisen operate in the country with near impunity. and as you know, we have seen enough and we don't want to cry and we don't want the open. we have seen enough, the president must leave. he has to leave, we support the soldiers, they must resist the one. we've heard that the army is going to take over and we support the tomorrow the day after tomorrow, and even before tomorrow. the support of the army attacks in recent years of killed an estimate of 2000 people and displaced 1500000 the targeting of civilians and soldiers has also become more frequent. and parts of the countries north and east are effectively no go areas for government forces. a former french colony, the landlord, west african nation, is home to an estimated 21000000 people. the country is mineral rich, but most work in the agriculture sector, as farmers and herders. high rates of poverty and food insecurity make burkina faso

8:05 pm
which means that the information is really not travelling at the moment. so me. when i left the camp with me and he was taking place this morning around about 10 a. m the meet and he was still very much on going. so despite the fact that the government does seem to be key to push the idea that everything is under control, it really doesn't seem to be in case of the moment. the key faster has been involved in a 6 year conflict with al qaeda it's. it's not a war that they are winning. and then back in november of last year, a military base in the north country was overrun by terrorists, 40000000 military. what killed a minute later transpired? the military base that was run out of it's like c to 2 weeks. so that many calls
8:06 pm
from people in the general public comments within the military itself for the government to gain when it comes to dealing with this war, which is taking over a large part of the of the country sides breaking ears. the saw from our media where the president has announced that he's stepping down. aman sucky sin holds the launch, the symbolic position. he says he's residing because he's unable to influence important foreign and domestic issues affecting his country. so i guess you have differences with prime minister nicol washington over a number of issues, including the dismissal of the head of the armed forces for the 1st time since seizing power in afghanistan, taliban officials renew or up for talks. the negotiations in norway will focus on easing afghanistan's was thing. humanitarian crisis and reports of human rights abuse. senior taliban members are expected to meet officials from several nato countries, including us representatives. and normally i'm yet good the then him

8:08 pm
a difficult task ahead for all of the sides trying to reconcile the differences between the people living. and i've got to stand the people in charge of a blind spot and those living in exile the damage of abundance of they like to call them, says one the rest to release the funds, the gun funds, which are nearly about $10000000000.00. pretty down, predominantly in the united states being held. they want the sanctions from the united states, united states, as well as the united nation, is to be lifted against the group and their allies. also, the best is going to be pressing them hard on the issues of women's rights, civil liberties goes education. and this is something that we've seen as, as a sticking point between the 2 sides that they are not able to move forward. we're not expecting any major breakthroughs, but diplomats have been telling us that this is a step in the right direction to try and reconcile the differences between. i've gone themselves and try and solve the problem for millions of outcomes. living in desperate condition. the u. k. says that russia is in contact with former ukranian

politicians as part of its plans for an invasion, but hasn't provided any evidence. britain, as foreign ministry says it has information that russia is planning to replace ukrainian president, a lot of landscape with fully ukrainian m. p. even more f, british deputy prime minister dominic rob told you, came media that there would be serious consequences if russia makes this move to try to invade, but also install a puppet regime. russia's foreign ministry spokeswoman as to smith the comments as disinformation accusing working the nature of deliberately escalating tension with ukraine or his else's heroes dorsal jabari with the view from moscow. the u. k is claims of moscow trying to install a pro russian leader in kiev is absolute nonsense according to the kremlin, and it's aimed at trying to provoke attention and escalate the situation with kemp . the kremlin has said that these accusations are absolutely false and that their
8:10 pm
main goal at spreading this, this information as they call it, is to show a yet again, that these nato countries are headed by anglo saxons who are trying to, i incite further tensions, and increase the disputes between this country and ukraine. meanwhile, it appears that for now, diplomacy is not dead yet. as the british foreign secretary will be traveling to moscow to meet her russian counterpart in early february as well as the british defense secretary will be traveling to moscow. this week to whole talks with high level officials here. so for now it appears that the path that to diplomacy and dialogue still remains open. that's got the view from london. i'll just eras will re challenge hospital. there's a certain amount of confusion about exactly why the british government has gone about releasing this information in this particular way. there is a degree of detail that they go into the names 5 individuals who they say are being essentially groomed, lined up by the russians to be

a puppet regime in kiev bots. there isn't any evidence, as he have said, and there is questioning about exactly what the motivations are for the british government to do this to release this information. i think if you're listening to dominate robin is rounds on the morning tv shows earlier on sunday, you could perhaps get a clue. well, have to leave. one of them is that yes, the main thing that he's being asked about was the scandals engulfing the government. the government would like very much to change the topic of conversation and talk about something else. let's talk about russia. perhaps. there is also another reason you could see in what he's saying. he's talking about the, the, the cost of russia with face if it did invade ukraine. he says, human cost because ukraine would defend itself very vociferously. but also there be an economic cost to russia. and he says that economic cost would be more effective
8:12 pm
if the international community speaks as $1.00 release with a broad consensus or perhaps this release of information is a way for the government to try and boost that broad consensus. senior us officials are talking to kathy about potentially supplying europe with gas. if russia invades ukraine, control is one of the world's biggest producers of liquified natural gas, but mostly exports to asia only supplying 5 percent of europe's gas. a white house official says the talks between president joe biden to cut out of the f shake to meet ben, how many tommy could happen to washington? by the end of the months? we'll get a weather update next year here up. so to come, it's been 2 years since we 1st went into locked down. we'll take a look at china is struggling to keep its covert 19 case numbers, but 0 ah
