2:01 pm
a group of great people accused of stealing more than $100000000.00 worth of jewels ah pursued diplomacy, but prepare for conflicts that seem to be the approach the united states is taking over ukraine. president joe biden says you'll soon be moving a small number of american soldiers to nato members in eastern europe, around a 1500 troops on standby for a possible deployment. according to the pentagon, biden's ukrainian count of our t is urging the u. s. and other allies to take a breath president valid old amir zalinski says they've seen russian build ups before. diplomatic talks must continue. and so many people living in easton, ukraine, the uncertainty over will vale? what they invade says part of daily life. observes panic. i'm begins are coverage.
2:02 pm
another sign of how serious the u. s. think the threat rush opposes to ukraine. you as president announced he's moving us forces to the region where have you decided how soon you would be moving? you? eastern europe. all we're moving you us through for europe in the nato countries in the near term. not a lot. he's likely talking about the 8500 troops that were put on stand by to deploy most headed to bolster nato's quick reaction force. but he's also said he has no intention of sending us truth to ukraine. and a new tone from the pentagon. given the type of forces arrayed the ground maneuver forces, the artillery, the ballistic missiles, the air forces, all of it packaged together. if that was unleashed on ukraine, it would be significant, very significant and it would result in a significant amount of casualties. and you can imagine what that might look like
2:03 pm
in dense urban areas, along roads and so on and so forth. it would be horrified. it would be terrible, but the administration wants to send the message. diplomacy can still work. there's no reason that the situation has to devolve into conflict. he can choose to deescalate, he can order his troops, oil, pick and choose dialogue and diplomacy. if not the u. s. as the result will be catastrophic, not just for ukraine, but for russia as well. technical haine, al jazeera, washington and ukraine itself, the president of urging the us not to escalate tension with russia flawed him. as an in sky says, talk of an imminent russian invasion may be exaggerated. we do not see a bigger escalation. yes, the truth numbers have gone up, but i was talking about the same thing in 2021. when there were drills in the russian federation, there was a big build up. we were supported by the us. europeans called on russia to pull
2:04 pm
back. i don't think the situation is more intense than that time and early 2021. there was no such coverage of ukraine at that time. people in ukraine near the border with russia had told the elders there the above the living with the threat of invasion for years. so that's go live to hold on. don't need, who is in kiev, how to do the people you've been speaking to then agree with the president assessment. what certainly, i mean there is a when you arrive in east in ukraine and you speak to people, they seem quite black that they are going on with their daily lives. yes. if they're live in proximity of the front line. and so they know more than anywhere else in the country. what has been the cause of this sort of long, sluggish war over to pass a tear off, but they're certainly not as alarm as some of the world leaders are. and i think that was reflected in what president zalinski had to say yesterday. he sort of
2:05 pm
blamed the foreign media for exaggerating the situation for causing panic. he also wasn't very happy about the fact that several, several western embassies have either shut down or reduce their level of their current staff. he said that all this really is causing, having an economic impact on the car. andries at the $12500000000.00 have already left the company since the beginning of this crisis. and that ukraine really can't sustain that without any help. so we drove, oh, a good portion of that 420 kilometer contact lines. am i v f, go to the south to the port of my view, paul. and we came across several people and this is what they told us. it's in the villages of eastern ukraine that the impact of the conflict is felt the most. victoria is worried about the long term effect it could have on her chill
2:06 pm
grants. well, house is just under line of conduct. hearing gunshots and loud banks has become part of daily life. a difficult situation for a parent, especially when she says this little sign of any help coming new those up. so didn't know how to better furniture all this time. the government hasn't provided anything and won't do anything right now. either any of nobody has told us anything going on, what will happen, and what should we do for most people here shrugged off the idea of an imminent invasion, saying they have been living with a threat for more than 8 years now. a few 100 kilometer south in multiple life goes on. the port city has seen fierce battles between bro russian separatist and de ukrainian army the mural of little melana,
2:07 pm
who lost all of her family and her left arm in a rocket. that, that a reminder of the suffering, the city has been through a few days ago, parliament passed the bill that allows civilians to carry weapons in case of invasion. but sales aren't going up yet. new finally here and happening, there's no panic in 20132014. we were selling a lot of automatic firearms, but at the moment there's no such demand. and it hasn't been an increase in demand for ammunition. buffering people here are resilient and many say they are ready to face any danger. the village is near the frontline and now part of the military zone residents are allowed to return here because it's actually fairly safe at the moment, but would have been driving around and we could barely find anyone. this woman is one of the few people we came across, switching between russian and ukrainian. she tells us life is good. they have water,
2:08 pm
electricity, and a shop. and she has made her own plans, in case of war, move out of my so good, dorman. yep, we're the mom. we built an underground shelter in our own backyard. we'll go there . we don't want to leave. this is our home, didn't a stu says it involves demons. zalinski called on people to remain calm and he's blaming. foreign media was spreading panic. ukrainians have learned to rely on themselves carry on with their lives while skidding through the fog of information . out of the russian ministry of defense as regularly posting videos of their military equipment on the border, is that making on to ukrainian t. v and and media. it is making it to you agreeing in t v. they do keep the audiences aware of what's going on, but they're not really beating the drum of war. they're not being alarm as i think
2:09 pm
that took the tone has to would have gone down also over the past week or so. maybe probably in time them with the tone or with the new messaging coming out of the only resident zalinski. mendoza, for example, than that the head of the national security council who also said that at the moment there is no real reason to panic. yes, there is a to build up, but that is not enough for an invasion. see as ukrainian media is keeping people informed about what's going on about the level of truth about a if there's any movement on the other side of the board or whether it is in rush. oh, actually also the northern border in bella. rosemary, some are russian kids have moved in but is not being overly alarm is not telling them that this is something different than for example, what happened back in 2021 or back in 2014. are there is no, it's not saying that i have an invasion, is it when it or that the suits are ready for that at this stage in time?
2:10 pm
and then a lot of people who speak to also italian, look at the weather, look at the snow. it is very difficult to have any kind of war under these weather conditions. so that's what they think that's how they see it. and probably that's what they tell themselves to put more from part their self is at a certain point, yet they shrug it off. but the idea of a war has been here back since 2014 and never really leaves anyone in the grade. when you asked them, they say it's coming at some point, but we don't know when and how them made their life are some care. thank you for the russian side of the border. foreign minister. so galen, rob says his country does not want war. das jibari has more russia's naval strengths on full display in the black sea, part of regular drills it carries out throughout the year and in the country.
