2:11 am
or ben has ruled out any nato deployment to his country when you were around the same time in give president zelinski was meeting with the polish prime minister. gas was also on the agenda here, finding ways for ukraine to rely less on russia when it comes to energy supplies. the ukranian president would have also urge his visitors to tune down the rhetoric . feeling that the already fragile economy could go in a tailspin his message to ukrainians. this is not the time to panic yet, and the country is well prepared. the government has issued a map with more than $5000.00 shelters around kiev. the main ones being the soviet bill subway stations. for now, life goes on as usual, against your wife is the woman i feel people are worried in words, but not in action. if you're talking about people leaving the city or stalking up on food, or looking for bomb shelters, i don't think that's happening. i don't know any one who's thinking like that. them
2:12 am
we received a big what she like world leaders also doesn't know is how all this will end up. this is not only about the sovereignty of ukraine, or it's right to one day become part of nato. it's also about drawing new lines, east and west, competing over the new security architecture of europe. ukrainians hope they won't be left out in the cold weather. the hamid elder 0 give. meanwhile, russian president vladimir protein has said he holds talks on ukraine, will avoid what he's labeled negative scenarios, including war. he went on to say the us and finalize have ignored the kremlin main concerns, including nato expansion and binding ukraine from joining the military lives proofing it early, but i'm just putting, putting that means that we are analyzing the response from the u. s. and i have already said that our concerns have not been addressed. we have not seen any guarantees that nato will move, its presence in our country also has
2:13 am
a right to choose its own security. we cannot allow one country to increase the security at the expense of another country. below we denmark has become the 1st c u country to lift all corona virus restrictions. spider surgeon covered 90 infections over the past 2 weeks. it's relying on the high vaccination rate to ward off the only con very and vaccination passes and masks are no longer required to enter restaurants shops or use public transport. jeffrey la virus is the head of the health systems research group at the burse, luna institute for level health. he says easing all restrictions that want doesn't make sense. i think its a bad move to list all restrictions. i understand the population is tired and many are thrilled that all restrictions are being removed, but it gives a false sense of security. i think that could have been
2:14 am
a more gradual reduction in, in lifting. i think denmark, in that sense to setting a bad president, it's basically politics over public health. they could have kept face masks on, at least in public transportation. and i don't think many people would be complaining about that. i do think it's a lot about the politics and being, being able to say, you know, we were the 1st to do this. we were and we were the government in power, but i think it's sending the wrong message to the population. so cases are higher than ever, and hospitalizations are actually going up. the numbers in the intensive care unit says is not going up, so that's a good sign. but i mean, you're hospitalizations are going up, which is quite worrisome when you look at the unvaccinated, though, that's the population that, that's ending up largely in, in hospital. so i think it's one about trying to get people to get vaccinated, but it's also, they're not everyone is, is boosted and even people who are vaccinated can get infected and some of them can go on to have serious consequences. so i do believe that there were gradual
2:15 am
reduction of restrictions would make good sense in denmark, but to lift it all in one go doesn't really make good public health sense the beijing winter olympics, again in just 3 days, an organizer, se covered cases among athletes and personnel are within the expected controllable range. 24 infections have been reported in the last day during 16 athletes. the olympics organizing committee has reported 200 cases in just over a week. some athletes have been rolled out of the games while others who are asymptomatic or isolating a head of very fence. awfully st. personnel are being kept away from the public. still ahead on al jazeera amnesty international. paul's full accountability after labeling israel and apartheid state. and we look at some of the proposals of chinese assembly that is current that he's considering as it rewrite the constitution.
