john sullivan hand delivered the american response to russia's demands for increased security guarantees. amid it's stand off with the west over ukraine, the letter several pages long repeats. the biden administration's position u. s. troops go where they're wanted. individual countries decide whether they want to join, nato and russia must abandon any plans to invade ukraine. moscow says it has no such plans. the document is with them and balls in their court. we'll see what we do, as i said repeatedly, whether they choose the path of diplomacy dialogue, whether they decide to renew aggression against ukraine, were prepared. either way, good to see you again. but the u. s. also offered some proposals it thinks could reassure russian president vladimir potent and his government renette arms control, improved transparency on us engagement in ukraine, and changes to
10:03 am
u. s. nato exercises and eastern europe. the russians received a similar note from nato leadership in a bid to head off a possible conflict in ukraine. we colon rashaw once again to immediately the escalate the situation. nato firmly believes the attentions on this agreements must be sold through dialog on diplomacy. nato was offering to host negotiations between the us and russia to resolve the crisis but stolen bird told reporters 5000 nato rapid response. troops can be called up in just a few days if needed. but washington and its european allies have stepped up deliveries of military age to keep, including defensive weapons. unity among western nations though has not been complete. i in fact like germany, notably hasn't provided any military aid to keep sensibly because of its reliance on oil and gas deliveries from russia. the u. s. reportedly is trying to address
10:04 am
those concerns. i'm absolutely confident in german solidarity in our being with ho together with us and other eyes and partners in confronting renewed russian aggression against ukraine. meantime, the u. s. and russia are still walked in a spat over diplomatic thesis. 26 russian diplomats in their families left washington on wednesday because of what the russian ambassador called on going harassment by american authorities. u. s. official say it's now up to moscow to respond to what the americans consider reasonable proposals to and the crisis. but they saying they're still ready to impose the harshest sanctions possible. if moscow orders its troops to invade ukraine. rosalyn jordan al jazeera, the state department. now this be no immediate response from moscow to the u. s. and nato demands, but to elia, russia's foreign minister warned of swift retaliation unless concessions are made.
10:05 am
if you, when you're good, usually constructively, with a constructive response does not arrive and the west continues its aggressive course. moscow will, as president putin has said on more than one occasion, take the necessary retaliatory measures. so just though still busy for security of russia and its citizens is an unconditional priority, and it will be reliably ensured in all circumstances by max bergman served as a top adviser in the state department under present brock obama working on ukraine . and he says that moscow security demands unmasking other intentions. i think no one is very optimistic that the diplomatic track will be picked up by russia. because i don't ultimately think that russia's issues are with nato military exercises, or with the posture of nato. i think the us has done a very smart thing to say, like, what russia, if your concerns are really are the security or security issues such as are military exercises or various arm sales that we have done in our,
10:06 am
in arms transfers to ukraine. we can talk about that is we have a long history of talking about that with the russians and the soviet since the cold war period. ready of trying to create strategic stability. but i think at the heart of this, i think is about russia wanting to control ukraine in what the us is not going to do is to sort of see, to ridiculous demand, such as ensuring that, that ukraine will never be part of nato. frankly, russia already have sort of a detail about that because russia has occupied part of the brain. and i don't think there's any possible way that ukraine becomes part of nato, as long as russian forces are still on cranial territory. so i think what we're really talking about is the russian looking for reasons to walk away from talks to justify potential invasion. and so that's why i think everyone in washington is very much on edge right now. life that has gone on is becoming a frozen hell. that's the warning from un secretary general antennae garish. who
10:07 am

10:09 am
the demands and what they have to deliver afghanistan and going, it's going to sink, fell in that tremendous humanitarian. this all search, most of us got stones reserves remain frozen, but the un wants to change that without renewed liquidity in the african economy. as a risk, the da humanitarian situation becomes a country wide famine. on the other hand, some nations still worry about rewarding the taliban when the human rights situation in particular, the treatment of women seems to be getting worse. not better. james bayes al jazeera of the united nations southwards military says north gray refined to projectiles believe to be ballistic missiles. they will all from the coastal city of ham, who into the sea. if confirmed it would be the 6th launch of ballistic missiles this year. the un says pill yang has violated security council resolutions. us media is reporting that supreme court justice stephen g breyer is set to retire
