but germany won't send weapons to ukraine, saying that would only escalate the situation. meanwhile, controversial comments from germany's top. a naval officer resulted in him losing his job. the russian military flexing its muscles in the worn at region bordering ukraine. moscow denies its planning and invasion. but with this slick video released by its defense ministry and at least once to send the message that it's ready to fight. there is real concern in the region about russia's motives. russian troops are now positioned in bella, rues, all along russia's border to ukraine and our mast in eastern ukraine, where fighting has been ongoing for years. further to the north, the baltic states of estonia, latvia and lithuania, are promising to support ukraine with shipments of weaponry and military support.
