6:03 am
man, we may very clear to moscow that if it chooses to renew aggression against it against ukraine, it will be met and it will face very serious consequences. we will not have tack strike in late, quote unquote, whatever you crate. the president asked me to come now to reaffirm our own community grain to consult closely with his leaders. his assistance demonstrates the support of our strategic plans. lee crane to join the nato alliance with one nation can simply dictate to another it's choices, including with whom it will associate also coming up at british prime minister boys johnson, he just can't shake the hangover from a string of lockdown off his parties to day a defection from his own party and growing calls for his resignation. you sat there
6:04 am
too long for all the good you have done in the name of god, go to our viewers watching p b. s in the united states into all of you around the world. welcome. we begin the day with crane and the weapons of war. to day you as secretary of state entity, blink in, warned, russia could quickly double the 100000 forces. it already has positioned along the border with ukraine. he also announced that the u. s. is cindy more weapons to the ukrainian military, a bitter sweet message delivered after talks and kia with ukraine's president and foreign minister. we have given more security assistance to ukraine. ha, in the last year than at any points this 2014. and they say we're doing that on the same basis. the deliveries are ongoing. again, as recently as bless you weeks and more scheduling companies. should russia
6:05 am
carry through with any aggressive, intense and renew its aggression and invade ukraine will provide additional material. beyond that, it is already in the pipeline, and that will further aid in the infant evening. but to morrow blinkin will be here in berlin for talks with the quad group, which includes germany, france and the u. k. on friday, blinkin will be in geneva for one on one talks with russian foreign minister, saggy laval lincoln, is hoping these will be the final stops for a diplomatic train headed for de escalation to de rushes. deputy foreign minister said there will be no russian invasion of ukraine if he's wrong, for the blinking diplomatic express. this week could be the end of the law. my 1st guest to night is gustaf gristle. he's with the european council on foreign relations. he joins me from right here in berlin. this rest was good to have you
6:06 am
with us to night. bleak ends, 33, stop diplomatic. express from key of to berlin to geneva. is he headed for de escalation or will it be a russian invasion of ukraine at the end of july? well, as very hard to tell. so the other signals coming out of moscow is that they have little interest in talks. they have little interest in any kind of solution that does not represent their full region, all their full demands, which is a very discouraging sign. if you are actually honestly interested in talks and negotiations, you basically have to accept that you'll never get through with whatever you want. so i'm still skeptic about about the church allowed come, of course, the cost for this is mounting and the cost calculations for russia went into
6:07 am
the sort of escalation game which is going on for, for more than a month has changed for the europeans being a bit more so about the prospect of sanctions and the americans and other european countries. those are coming forward with military support. that in combination might persuade the russians to try and see can or from on is still very hard to say. and i think further key messages would be necessary. i know it's, it's very easy to be skeptical about russia actually wanting to de escalate. but i want you to take a listen to what the russian, deputy foreign minister said today when he was asked about the threat of a russian invasion of ukraine. i do believe that there is no risk of a larger scale war to start to unfold in europe or elsewhere. but we do not once and will not. i take any action of aggressive
6:08 am
character. we will not attack strike in weighed, quote, unquote, whatever ukraine. mr. grosso, isn't that wonderful? i mean should, should we take him at his word that there will be no rush to the invasion of ukraine? when all the social is camping in the woods around ukraine must just be a environmentalist, enjoying the countryside, i guess. so. so the, the problem is, i mean, is the problem actually for blinking is as you said, the rules out invasion aggression will probably, if that happens we will probably see the fabrication of a pretext, of course, attempts of this in the past due to do so. and then sort of russia will find a prefix to quote unquote make q or results or defensive action on bus
6:09 am
or whatever, and protect the citizens and, and that sort of, we believe the game. the problem, of course, for blinking in this is and he assaulted that there are actually show different ways and there are many possibilities. russia can use the military strength for escalate if scenarios, short or full scale war and, and invasion like a pure air war like a limited escalation from the so called separate these territories. which of course, are lead and, and trained by russia. bod, sort of in the official narrative, are not official russian troops. that would make a reaction from the western side and the unity of the western side. that exists probably for the case of a total invasion. more difficult because then the fisher discussions will start will, is this really a russian invasion, or is, was this really defensive for, wasn't it, et cetera. and here, sort of that come, brings us back to blink and travel to europe. and all these scenarios will be talk
6:10 am
through there have been talk through with ukraine they, they will be talk through now with european leaders to, to not only sort of stay put, going to do if russia fully in ways ukraine, but also to, to be radian from for all different kinds of mercy scenarios that might happen and unfold in the upcoming weeks. let me ask you about these, these upcoming talks to more of here in berlin. the quad group, i mean we've got blinking, coming to berlin. he's going to talk with his u. k. counterparts, german counterparts, french counterparts. and we've got though the reality, the u. s. is the power broker here. russia only wont wants to talk with the u. s. and yet we're talking about european security. so why does it feel like the europeans are always punching below their weight in this crisis? well, that's very easy. i mean, 1st of all,
6:11 am
they're not an unclear power info wrote for russia. the status if nuclear power is decisive. yes, you can. france, have a smaller nuclear arsenals bought the british one is basically attached to us will on, on the french, explicitly site that as a result, as a means for national defense, not for defense of nature alliance with such a so. so for the bigger european security question, the big nuclear power is the u. s. and our sort of the predominant military power. and also there are folks like me who continue to tell the europeans that in russian mindset and viewpoint military policy, the decisive factor up until now that europeans for happy to ignore that. but there is sort of one thing actually where you're really matters. and that of course, is the whole topic of economic sanctions because russian european economic ties, especially the energy sector, much lighter than american ryan about that mr. gret. so let me ask you about that. you know, in the past 48 hours, germany has leaned out of the window here
6:12 am
a lot in favor of possibly killing the nord stream to natural gas pipeline that linked russia to germany. touch killing it in the event of a rush, an attack on ukraine. yep. is this the right approach? i mean, why not kill it now? to prevent a russian invasion? ah, exactly, the problem is he, of course, germany starts to with the social democrats, the greens have been stating that for, for quite a long time, start to realize actually what law 3 to means in terms of security. this has been sort of that the large files are full and have been living in a state of denial on this because of no offering to if it becomes operational. russia will not be dependent on the existence of all the transit states to export gas to europe. and this is sort of not about importing or russian gas or not, but the route and the geo political implications. each of the roots has and sort
6:13 am
of by the prospect of notion to becoming operational basically made it possible that the most important areas of the gas and also the most important gas notes of the ukrainian transportation network. that's not just one pipeline. it's a network of pipeline is, is now the staging area of the 1st got its tank army. and that is, that is what everybody predicted. the germans, you know, the russians will boil off the military temperature if, if you do this pipeline. the problem is, of course, no politicians really likes to go to the public and said, look guys, i have been horribly wrong and, and, and my policies are stupid, that positions didn't do that. once they, they come to the idea that actually will daft on is not the best thing to sort of start to find ways to track silently track back on that. and that is basically the, the long silence. and then sort of the d d, or quote, discussions within berlin, this is part of this process. oh my god, what i've done, how do we get out of that?
6:14 am
and here, of course, for the previous agreement with michael biden, provide sort of the framework to do that. yeah, it's a good point. it's, it's almost as if germany is trying to de marco lies. it's russia policy right now . let me ask you, before we run our time, we're almost at the end of 2 weeks of high level, high state talks between the western russia. a lot of talking here blinking is promising even more talks. and yet nothing has really changed has narrowed. fortunate can also, the problem is talking alone will not solve this. talking alone will not preserve peace in europe. talking can only be effective. it's backed up by credible force. and by credible to terence, i over the past 48 hours, especially the europeans, have made good efforts to credibly back the united states,
6:15 am
especially heater germans. and that might change things in combination with diplomacy. but if the russians perceive that the west, we'll just watch this on t v while ukraine falls and perceive the west. and the americans being disinterested in european, in europe and europeans divide it, then they will go full to prey. and it's sort of up to this process. now the travel diplomacy, the statements, the threat of sanctions, the, the weapon supply, to really convince the russians that this will not be a tv show. this is serious. and we will be watching this to find out if you are right, mr. russell. will it be a t v show war? stop wrestle with the european council on foreign relations. we appreciate your time and your insights, please come back those. there's plenty to talk about next. time thank you. thank you very much. i will. ah,
6:16 am
it's been another bruising day in parliament for the british prime minister as he faces a growing number of allegations about government drinks. parties during the cove at 90 locked downs and increasing number of parliamentarians from johnston's conservative party say they are unhappy with his leadership. johnson says he's waiting for the publication of a report into those parties which is due out next week. and he's appeared for the backing of fellow conservatives. few have openly called for his resignation, although it's believed a substantial number. have submitted letters which could lead to a leadership change. and johnson received a further blow to day with the defection of a conservative member of parliament to the opposition labor party. will go straight to our correspondence in london just a moment. but 1st, here's johnson reacting to that defection. i'm very sorry. this isn't as high as the dairy, i let me say to the right. and this is because my lease,
6:17 am
my says right on with the the consult upon a one. but there is i generations under the prime minister agenda uniting, uniting, i'm literally delivering for the people a very so we will win again in verizon. all right, let's take this now. there are very on charlie chelsea bill, she's in london. good evening to you, charlotte. well, political theater, the best you can get on the planet, we saw the defector there with the union jack across his face. what were his motives in? how damaging is it to the prime minister? or brittany gave a number of motive. all have been extremely heavy body blow to the prime minister just to read you just a few read an interview. he said that the policy prime minister, conservative party was trying to defend the indefensible. he was talking that particularly about party gators. it's called, hey,
6:18 am
this series of allegations about gatherings held at number 10. he said that there's been fall too many issues where i felt like we've been on the wrong side and then proceeded to name a number of controversy surrounding the conservative party dating back money. some of them finally and alexa relaxer resignation to the prime minister, he said, you prime minister boris johnson, the conservative party as a whole has shown themselves incapable of offering the leadership the party deserves. i think you can agree damning that from him. what really was a mentor moment when he did defects? he literally crossed the island prime minister's question time. in fact, with the opposition, that would have been an enormous blow to the prime minister. something that he will have been warned about just minutes before he was essentially fighting for his political career that thought this is just one man. the real question now is what the remaining members, if the consent of the conservative party and now feeling that the ones who have the
6:19 am
power to trigger a vote of no confidence. yeah, i mean, usually after a party i want to get invited back and i want to lose my job. party gate is obviously just one of the prime ministers, biggest headaches. i want you to take a listen to what the leader of the opposition said to day, as well as the prime minister. now i pad the prime minister, very carefully crafted response to the accusation. it almost sounds like a lawyer wrote the police capital with most question. when did the prime and the 1st become aware that any of the staff had concerns about the 20 from a party? the i'm, i'm great with royal john for repeating the question that he's already we have on this is beaca is for the inquiry to, to come forward with an explanation of what happened. i mean, i'm crazy. simply, you simply must wait. charlotte, why does boys johnson the prime minister?
6:20 am
why does he think that he can last until this report comes out next week? what we heard again today that he has absolutely no plans to resign. so what is very clear is that he won't jump what will need to happen is that he will need to be push. now, the prime minister knows is we'll do that. the number, the threshold of letters of no confidence that it needed to be reached to triggered that no confidence vote is not yet that we don't know how close it is. and there really is a school of thought that perhaps his critics within his own party, a waiting to hear the results of the investigation that his own going into party gate via its hope. civil servant perhaps hoping that that could be the final nail in the coffin, full of the prime minister forest johnson. now, the prime minister will also be looking at those who gone out on the air waves today supporting him. and there have been many who've been lining up to defend him
6:21 am
on national television. they have been talking about his record with vaccine rollouts booster programs, particularly thing as well. but now looking at the international demand and domestic situation now is not the time for leadership for context. so lot of that really defending him on record today. this is certainly not a story for beacons. let's put some meat on this table here. tell me about pork pies and red meat for that met. right. to see headlines for the, for the newspapers. i think you can. now they might need a little bit of translation data from, from the british as of the pork pie issue. well, that is in reference to the fact that a, a number of members of the prime minister's own party apparently met to discuss his future. they were hosted by an m p. b, m. p for melton, that's behind the famous port pye. that's why it,
6:22 am
it got that name and of course caught me rhyming plan for life. many pointed out is pines, se that could be a reference that from those he came up with that phrase, to allegations from the prime minister. faith critics about the obligations that he's been lying to the public now read me to almost the exact opposite. that's the name, the nickname for what is apparently an attendant by the prime minister, by the party to, to story med, read me through a series of policies out that are going to appeal to members of his back benches. his own policy to try and keep them on sides. so one of those might be, for example, the dropping of co restrictions, theories of others that have come a lot of speculation that that could be the reason why and that is operation red meat. and i've got 30 seconds. so how me ask you, how can johnson, how can his government justify the return to freedom day? you know, getting rid of these restrictions when you've still got the highest number of cobra
6:23 am
deaths you've seen in nearly a year just yesterday. what aim side to the numbers that they said that it's clear, the cases have gone down that the, on the con way of his peaks, they're also looking hospitalizations, thing that they stabilize, but like any big decisions in this pandemic, it is a gamble. do you have to see what happens when you do have people returning to whack the end of the the mandates to when mosques as well? some concern, the prime minister saying they're at the stage is justified already w's charlotte jilson pill tonight. she's getting her mail over meet maybe some veggies as well in london. charlotte thing ah. europe's 1st major film festival of 2022 takes place next month right here in berlin. the berlin international film festival will go ahead with film stars and directors attending from february 10th to the 16th. it will be followed by 4 days of public screenings for film fans. not insiders had expected the bailey knowledge
6:24 am
to directors to stage the festival as an online only event for a 2nd year. but you, maria, they've announced an in cinema program with 18 films in competition. buying for the coveted beer was here in this. i made a warning our las go now to scottsboro from the w culture. he is our film guru fox, scott, why do you make of this decision to hold this entire event in person? so yeah, i right, i mean it's, i mean 11 us, i'm really happy, i mean, a love to watch films as a proper phone vessel in the sentiments. great. even just to get out of the house these days with with, with, with corona. um, but uh it is a bit surprising. um, because as you mentioned, i mean a lot of people expected this festival to go online and other events um events have done so. i mean, the golden globes was held behind closed doors. the sundance film festival,
6:25 am
which hicks off this week will be a virtual festival. online only am and am holding the festival in person now is kind of a bit of bad timing on part of the a. bailey nala, because a germany is experiencing a record number of cobit infections. the german health minister said he expects the, the current wave of coded to peek a sort of mid february which be right in the middle of the a berlin film festival. the festival. toughest tried to take a lot of precautions, safety precautions, are you gonna have to be doubly vaccinated and have a negative cobit test to get into the cinemas? there's going to be social distancing on the red carpet, all the sort of parties and events surrounding the festival have been banned. um, but i still don't know. it's still a bit of a gamble, and i'm not really sure if particularly the international film industry is ready to come back in force in person to berlin this year. yeah, you know, i've spoken to several people who i know who come every year to the berlin allah. and they told me they're not coming this year. they just think it's too risky. and
6:26 am
