a celebration. and an outbreak of the creative artists on the striving mental vessel complicates a delivery to soon army hit. ah . so the united states is working on pounds to reduce europe's dependence on russian gases. tension is billed of ukraine, washington and its european allies of scouring global markets including cutter for alternative energy sources in case russia squeezes supplies in retaliation for possible sanctions. so part of the united front, the u. s. in europe are putting up a response to russia's military deployment on the ukranian border. a russia has been holding a week of military drills in the region, as well as in crimea, which moscow and next in 2014. and ukraine itself, a 3rd shipment of american weapons, and ammunition has now arrived as part of a $200000000.00 aid package. this is aimed at shoring ukrainian defenses against
2:02 am
the threat of russian invasion, which the u. s. president says could be a world changing event. i. let's cross over washington dc. i'm fisher, is standing by sir allen. the president has been speaking. what else you had say? well, we know that he's going to meet the guitar to amir on monday. part of that is to talk about fuel supplies to europe, if there were to be any squeeze, put on raw, put on by russia to europe. if sanctions were put in place. joe biden went out shopping today, so it's not all about ukraine all the time. but inevitably, he was asked about what was happening. and there was a strong warning for vladimir putin from the u. s. president. there will be an enormous consequences if he were to run in bay that he could the entire country or a lot less than as well. for russia not only in terms of economic consequences and political consequences, remember,
2:03 am
enormous consequences were wide. this would be the largest if we were to move in with all those force, middle orders of asians, ward, it would change the world. obviously, the president forgot about the u. s. invasion of iraq, which at that time was the biggest invasion since the 2nd world war. it's interesting that he is trying to get a united front across the u. s. one of the things he insists on doing is putting his 8500 troops on heightened standby. none of them will be going to ukraine. he says. but of course, if there were any need to allies like in poland or romania countries bordering ukraine, he'd be more than happy to send them there if there was a need and what kind of backend as the president habit the congressional support. so for while there have been a confidential briefings held for members of both parties in the leadership on the house, both house and the senate, and surprisingly from mitch mcconnell,
2:04 am
who is the republican leader in the senate. there was a vote of confidence for joe biden did a saying that the president is absolutely doing all the right things. he's lining up diplomatic and economic sanctions. he is making sure that troops are ready to move, not waiting for the us invasion, and he is providing military aid part of that $200000000.00 package to ukraine. so that if there is a russian invasion, they will be in a position to defend themselves. this says that mitch mcconnell is the president heading in the right direction, but there was a warning from lindsey graham, who is regarded as a hawk in the senate. he is also a republican, he said, look, he thinks joe biden is doing a good job, but he believes that the sanctions and vladimir putin should be imposed. no, not wait for any invasion. he says it's important because it would send a message to the wild that the u. s. is going to stand up to billy's. his warning is that if they don't make a stand over ukraine,
2:05 am
then there would be great concern for taiwan island. thanks about a, an official there in washington d. c. i. let's take this on further. we can speak to simon henderson who jones live, also from washington. he is the baker fellow and director of the gulf and energy policy program at the washington institute. simon, welcome. so 1st up, russia as control of the gas t hat, the supplies 40 percent of europe's air gas intake. what would it mean to the millions and millions of people who rely on that supply? if putin does start to strangle it as they get cold, where january still february is still going to be cold, probably at least the 1st off as march as well. if putin plays with the gas supply . and there might be cuts in electricity and heating and cooking for a chunk of pop, the population of europe could be impacted so. so very severe privations it
2:06 am
is there any precedent i what, what, what can we look at in the past during the cold war? for instance? i'm not sure there is a precedent of such and you know, a day we're jumping the gun to say this is going to happen, but merely the threat of it happening or the possibility without the threat necessarily being stated. it makes politicians in europe very uneasy as to what are the alternatives and especially given the lack of time. well, that's the major challenge. because europe, nato, us allies, a cetera define it as you would like, want to give the appearance of unity. and that is always difficult when it's tied up with their own views of their own electorates about what they could do
2:07 am
or should do. and frankly, it's not as if there's plenty of gas in the rest of the world which could quite quickly be shipped to europe to make up the distance, the difference or the potential difference. such cargoes are not just sitting there waiting to be given a destination. they're usually committed to go to other places, know notably in asia and it to get from say for example, cutter through to europe, takes many weeks. and so everybody's court at this point. what about germany is position and all of this? it's a major challenge for the new chancellors, not completely. and germany, if you'll forgive, the metaphor appears to have dug its own grave on this one. but 1st of all,
2:08 am
it's got a relationship with russia on gas supply. and despite people being unhappy about that relationship has only increased that relationship on top of that germany has been i'm var mentally good and has been closing down its nuclear plants and closing down its cold plants. so it doesn't have much alternative to the gas supply from russia is the are noble question, i suppose a what, what makes putin hesitate to put the squeeze on gas supply? i would like to think he doesn't know what sort of reaction he'd would get in response and he wants to add had, have the threat hanging there. but i would like to think he's lows to
2:09 am
use it if nothing else, he wants to have friends in europe, not necessarily germany or the united states or britain, but some of the other european countries. he would like to support moscow or acknowledge the leadership of moscow. he's not going to do that if he turns off their gas supply. right. interesting to get your analysis, appreciate that very much, sir. simon henderson, thanks very much into the u. s. coast guard is searching for the fibers aft report . sort of boat capsized. the man was found clinging to a boat about 70 kilometers from fort pierce, in that in florida. he told rescuers at 39, others were on boats when it left the bahamas on saturday night. no one was wearing like jackets when it was hit by bad weather. at the coast guard says they're treating it as a suspected case of human smuggling. as being international condemnation of the military could begin a faster united nations of u. s. according for immediate release of the post president of rock mark border,
