a bridge with the us, not for days by protest as opposed to corona virus restrictions. and the super bowl show down. a 100000000 american football fans are all set to tune in for the ally rams versus the cincinnati bengals. ah, so starting with ukraine, the latest diplomatic efforts to prevent what the west fears is an imminent russian invasion. the u. s. president is speaking to ukraine's later on the phone right now . overnight jo biden's called to vladimir putin failed to reach any sort of breakthrough whitehouse as president biden repeated warnings of severe consequences if russia invades you crime more with mike hannah in washington d. c. i guess we will get some sort of read out on that call a little bit later, but what we know going into it is that biden and zalinski are coming at this crisis from very different sort of angles. it would appear. so what we are told the
7:02 pm
call started about 15 minutes ago. we'll wait for a official white house read out of the cool. but as you say, yes, they may be coming up slightly different positions. the bite in administration has repeatedly insisted that the russia is moving to a war 14. it insist that and prepare preparations for an invasion of ukraine or well on the way that's the queue structure of conducting cyber attacks up full splash operations as it puts it. we've understood from reports out of ukraine that this degree of confusion about this that some believe that the u. s. is overstating the situation, creating a very difficult situation for ukrainians on the ground. so that is likely to be part of the conversation, perhaps from the ukrainian president. questions about what information the u. s. is basing these allegations on that would be part of the conversation. of course the u
7:03 pm
. s. is likely to continue to operate at most support to ukraine. it says that it is there, should ukraine need it and that it will maintain its close relationship with the nato allies in terms of continuing with dealing or attempting to deal with this crisis. mike, sunday is the day when we often hear from political figures on the sunday morning. political tv shows what's been said today. well, the biden administration is providing a united front and clearly a coordinated series of messages from the spokesman for the pentagon to the national security adviser at repeated what has been said in recent days that the russian invasion is imminent. perhaps all american should leave ukraine while they are still commercial flights available. so certainly there is a rhetoric, a heightened sense of rhetoric, which continues. and as i said on a clearly coordinated basis, at the same time,
7:04 pm
the message from the national security advisor is that there's still a path to diplomacy, which is what the u. s. would prefer to do. but interestingly enough, we've also heard from a republican senator lindsey graham, who on one of the talk shows a very clear he believes that the bite and administration is talking too much and doing too little. these absolutely insistent that the administration should be clarifying its tension. now, and among those sanctions that should be threatened is a closure of that very important note to pipeline between russia and germany. now that's been a contentious point. and in a way, the republican senator is now upping the ante on that particular point because a bite and administration has been insistent to this date that that pipeline will not be a precursor to sanctions that it may be closed. should russia invade? but it's certainly not going to be a preemptive sanction imposed on russia, because that would hom, it's close ally germany. so that is ongoing domestic dispute as well within the
7:05 pm
united states in terms of what the biden administration or at some republicans would have. what it is not doing my kana in washington dc. thank you so much for all of that. gemini, chancellor is not heading to moscow in tears. that'll happen. monday. all of schoultz says he will warn president vladimir putin not to underestimate the consequences of an attack. the kremlin continues to deny, though it's planning any sort of offensive, despite that huge military build up on the border with ukraine, his mo, from natasha butler. she's in kiff, a senior ukrainian official. dave has clarified the situation. he says that there's absolutely no intention on the behalf of the ukrainian government here to close ukraine's and a space he says that would be absolutely pointless, is completely nonsense. he said, he said, of course, as i space will stay open. anything else would amount to a blockade, but it just goes to show you ah, how difficult the situation is becoming in terms of messaging for,
7:06 pm
for the ukrainian a government we saw on saturday, the president, lord mayor zalinski saying look, we need to stop making people panic. panic is actually fueling our enemies. he said, you know, we need a car. many people to continue life as usual. yes, the german chancellor expected here in the capitol on monday. he'll be meeting wits, zalinski. they will of course be talking about the crisis. all actual, sir, this is his diplomatic push his part and trying to avert a war in europe. he has said that this is really the goal of europeans to have a avert war on their european soil, and also be talking to the ukrainian leader about ways in which germany could help ukraine's economy, which is suffering deeply in this crisis. until once again, reiterate european support a for ukraine's territorial, a sovereignty who then travel on to moscow on tuesday for a much awaited
7:07 pm
a visit to the russian president vladimir putin. the 2 will sit down for talks and they're a 1st face to face a meeting to discuss the crisis sholtes expected to say, look, if russia were to invade or attack ukraine, the west will respond with very strong sanctions. indeed. and the cremeans dismissing us warnings of an imminent invasion of hysteria, but new satellite photos do show the military build up. continuing in belarus and in russia joined the military drill is expected to start next sunday as well. meanwhile, moscow voicing its concern over a decision by the o. s. c e. the organization for security and cooperation in europe to read a kate from done yet in eastern ukraine. several countries are shutting their embassies and also urging their citizens to leave ukraine immediately. the later to do so, it's a strange situation, as you are all hearing as well,
7:08 pm
is deteriorating and is reaching a very dangerous stage. and i want to say a very clear message on behalf of the stranger, a liberal democracy who believes in freedom and the sovereignty of states, not just in europe, but in our own region as well. that the autocratic unilateral actions of russia to be threatening and bullying you tried is something that is completely and utterly unacceptable. i have some thoughts now from richard soccer, a professor of russian and european politics of the university of can't. he told us there's no appetite for war in russia and patients using the sound of to address the larger security concerns. the can crisis is a symptom of a larger crisis, which is i thought, most concerned the failure of the breakdown of european security order, which it was not happy about so many, many years yoke and wasn't happy with it and put in as constantly said, look,
7:09 pm
we really need to have a system in which we are not simply faced by enlarging later to voters. the idea of russian invasion, of course, nothing can be excluded, is extremely unlikely. because what on earth would russia do with trying to occupy country with 40000000 people who would put up stiff resistance? it would mean damaging russia not just were talking about sanction from hell being imposed on it, but also massive internal divisions. but my feeling is that you actually will keep these forces and keep this up for many, many months. and so the west will get exhausted and my oh to my play the game as if, as i argue the game is ultimately all about diplomacy. i'm trying to get issues onto the agenda, which should have been on the agenda for most concerned many years earlier. so they can keep this up free for months and then they can just just go back home and say, look, exercise is completed, no face lost. there's no mood and appetite for war. within russia,
7:10 pm
i've been somewhat heads of coast are talking about this, but they'll go home. no face last and it's a west which will have a lot of egg on his face as it were for having talked by an imminent invasion. even during the begging olympics, which by any standard is extremely unlikely on other news and opposition parties and tin is yes, i value night against president. i said after he announced sweeping changes to the judiciary. the more process happening and soft, he gave himself the power to dismiss judges. supreme judicial counsel was replaced under a new decree. it was one of the last institutions, independent of the site is made several new consolidate power in sacking the government and suspending parliament in july or from eliza of oakland in tennis. this decree by the time prejudicial council was initially a sort of 8, appeared like a rollback by cai side because the international response, when he dissolved the supreme judicial council was very,
7:11 pm
very firm. that the g 7 un and european union have, i have said strong words, demanding chinese returned to the democratic path. but what we seen with the decree today is that he's gambling on their support. and that he's more interested in gathering the 3 main powers of state of legislative executive. and finally now the judicial power within kenisha. so this is another step forward to what's the protesters was saying is a complete dictatorship. an authoritarian rule by cai side to day citizens against the crew who are an independent, aquinas little broad church event. she joined together with the largest political party tunisia, an actor, which is the muslim democratic party, which has its opponents, a lease of democratic henson of a socialist wing and all say the dist, dorian wing of politics. and in the lot of the,
7:12 pm
the opponents of an act to say that they're to blame. so this isn't she quite a, a controversial alliance between the 2. but as we're seeing, there are thousands of people gathering and she a, despite a chi psi and green bit protests, a band. yet under the rules of caveat and sanitary laws, they are out in force saying we want the supreme judicial counsel reinstated, is ready. police of clear protesters and the flash point suburb of shake gerra in occupied east jerusalem. demonstrations broke out as a far right is ready. and he opened a parliamentary office in the neighborhood, checked, it has emerged as a symbol of palestinian resistance against israel. hundreds of palestinians heavy to been evicted or facing eviction from the arms. iraq supreme court has ruled her she's of ari is not eligible. busy to run for president follows a complaint filed against him by impedes of a corruption charges which he denies. the kurdish politician was chosen by

7:14 pm
a number of lawmakers. and that is based on, as they say, they accuse her out of the body of corruption and mismanagement. when he was finance minister in 2016, they say that he was sacked from his job in 2016. and that's why he is not the right person to be nominated for the president of the country. now the question now is whether or not this could this democratic party will have even time or chance to submit all to apply for other candidates to replace the betty. meanwhile, the incumbent bar homesite, the president current president, but homicide, which is the no many the candidate of the debt. could this turn union party, he is now taking the lead as a frontrunner in the presidential race 5,
