5:04 pm
. we also spoke to one man who came from britain. he's lifted the last 2 years. and he said that amongst the farmers, the expert community, even though they've been notes of messages and advice from various embassies about a foreigner and foreign, is leaving the country advised to leave ukraine as soon as possible. he said he knew many people who were deciding to say because they have connections if they have a family here. although he did say that over the last few weeks, most people felt pretty calm. no great sense of panic. but in the past few days, they have certainly started to feel a lot more nervous. yeah. and that com is a recurring theme, isn't particularly for president serv. ludmilla zalinski, whom we heard of the top of the show was calling for people to, to stay calm short of all of us. yet we're seeing foreign governments pulling staff out of embassies. it's a very difficult job for the ukrainian president because you know, he is calling for calm. he's telling people not to panic as you say,
5:05 pm
but at the same time, oh, what ukrainians are seeing is a country's telling their citizens to leave the country. we've seen a, several of them, australia, japan, a several european nations. and then of course, the us pulling out all of it's a diplomatic staff. so it's a very confusing picture. in many ways. it is the sort of thing that might, inside people to panic below russia has said all along and it maintains that a, it has no intention of invading ukraine, but that is not the story, not the picture coming out of from the white house from various western powers that are saying the russia has the capacity to do so, because there has been this military build up on ukraine's board. does that they could be ready to go. that could be an attacker any. and any moment, some, a western intelligence source is even talking about a possible attack on the capital creating a key of. now, of course, we know that the diplomatic efforts are continuing. they have been phone calls
5:06 pm
already between the french president emanuel mcgraw and the u. s. pro and the russian president vladimir putin. we don't know whether or not that call is over and we don't know what will come out that call the later today. they will also be a call between the kremlin leader and the u. s. present joe biden. natasha, thank you very much. and in natasha talking to us there from kia. are want to go to white house correspondent kimberly hawk it. let's follow up from one to touch. was telling us about the diplomatic efforts going on here with some very high level phone calls taking place today, particularly between the us and russia. yeah, i just want to get to some breaking news. we've just heard in the last few moments that in fact the defense secretary lloyd osmond has spoken to his russian counterpart. we are just hearing about this that they talked about the defense build up a long the ukraine border, something that the u. s. has called russian aggression. this of course, is a series of phone calls that are taking place because of course,
5:07 pm
not only has the defense minister spoken with his russian counterpart, but we've also had a read out of the phone call that took place between anthony antony blank in the u . s. secretary of state and his rug russian counterpart survey. laugh rob the foreign minister. get to that read out in the moment. and then of course, the big phone call that everyone's focusing on. and that is the phone call between the russian president vladimir putin and u. s. president joe biden sat for a couple of hours from now, very quickly, we'll talk about the phone call that took place in just the last hour or so between the foreign ministers. and essentially what we've gotten from that read out is that once again, the u. s. is underscoring the importance of diplomacy, essentially that the diplomatic path remains open according to the reader from the state department. that is something that the secretary of state stressed that there's still a chance to resolve this crisis. in fact, he said it would require moscow to de escalate and engage in good faith discussions
5:08 pm
. he reiterated that moscow should pursue the path of aggression if that were to happen and further to invade your crane. it would result in a resolute, massive, and united trans atlantic response. now, we assume that this is also the message that joe biden will be communicating when he takes the phone call with the russian leader. that is set to take place at any time. and as we should point out, this is a call that has not taken place between these 2 leaders sent late since late last year. and of course a lot has happened. and also what's interesting about this call is the fact that. 6 it was at the invitation of the russian side, but initially that invitation was for monday. the counter proposal from the united states was no, we'd like to have this call on saturday because of course u. s. military intelligence indicates that we are now in this window where this invasion, the u. s. says without evidence,
5:09 pm
could happen at any time. so the u. s. we assume is trying to take sort of one last ditch effort to try and avert some sort of crisis through diplomacy. they say however, if that does not happen, the transit land leaders are united and resolute in the way they will react not only militarily, but also with punishment, punishing financial sanctions. that's our white house correspondent, kimberly hawker, kimberly, thank you very much. indeed. more rushes, holding military drills with bella roost, not far from the ukrainian board. upset volume is joining us live from home. so you are pretty close to an air force in. but near there for these have been taking place. just talk us through what you've been seen. well, absolutely. these are largest drills, military drills between russia and bella. roofs are really in full swing here in this region, which is asked to say very close to the ukrainian board and also very close to the ukrainian capital key of what we saw today. we're helicopter gun ships flying above

5:11 pm
