. s embassy there. this is part of a package worth $200.00 us $1000000.00 promised to kiev last week by u. s. secretary of state antony blanket. the initial delivery includes defensive weapons and ammunition. as the country prepares for possible russian aggression. moscow has deployed some 100000 troops along its border with ukraine, but insists it has no plans to launch an attack. 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, it at least wants 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 are massed in eastern ukraine, where fighting has been ongoing for years. further to the north,
9:03 am
the baltic states of estonia, latvia and lithuania, are promising to support ukraine with shipments of weaponry and military support. arguing that diplomacy alone can't prevent an armed conflict. aggressiveness, who said the bus better guide him? was the aggressor always way got impossible, losses sausages and likely damage. also, i did a my, i think that a strong stayed on capable of defending itself. what steve is really the only way in to increase the chances of a peaceful resolution. oh, really me their policy or that they just was. but it, however, it's a principle of deterrence not endorsed by germany, which has disappointed kiya by refusing to supply weaponry to crane. because now off the cuff comments by germany's naval chief have added more fuel to the diplomatic fire. hi, of him shewn back on a visit to india, said russian president,
9:04 am
vladimir putin probably deserve respect and that the crimean peninsula annexed by russia would not return to ukraine. just listen to some of you, clay brought me up in this is go look on this subject of we have to do that. oh, oh, the go issues. ah, actually let you most these remarks have now cost him his job. and the fo paul has added to the misgivings in kiev over germany stance on ukraine. but with the uncertainty looming, ukraine has been assured that it doesn't stand alone. the u. k sent anti tank missiles earlier this week. and the 1st delivery of u. s. military supplies has already touched down. meanwhile, residence in kiev formed a human chain in celebration of ukraine's national unity day, hoping that opposing sides can still come together and hold on to their stated goal
9:05 am
of a diplomatic solution. oh, that's brain dw correspondent, mathias bullying, or who joins us from kiev mathias. what exactly has been delivered and what does this mean for the conflict now? well i, ukraine is now procuring weapons from many countries there. there was this big shipment from the u. s. to have in deliveries from britain, also other countries, the baltic states and the netherlands have announced shipments. it's mostly about light weapons that are easy to use and effective in case of an evasion, anti tank weapons. of course, a complicated military systems are less urgent on the list as it would take time too, and store them and train soldiers. so it's, it's mostly a weapons that would make an invasion by russia more costly. this is the,
9:06 am
the idea now to deter russia by making an invasion, costly our tar, aside from deterrence. there's also been a flurry of diplomatic activity aimed at g, fusing tensions by now the united kingdom says the kremlin is trying to install pro russian leadership in ukraine. what has a written reaction been there to this accusation? this press release is raising more questions than it provides answers. they gave a list of 4 former officials of the general coverage administration. that's the administration that was ousted in the might on protests until 2014 saying the kremlin wants to inform them, but how they want to install them and, and how it, what strategy that they're using. would this be a people who are on the list, for example, after a possible invasion? or is there any, any other plan that there's no answers to that? so this is kind of very strange and, and, and hard to understand information. these people are not popular. so one thing we
9:07 am
couldn't possibly exclude is that russia wants to somehow, or a spur, a popular movement to install them. and you want to ask you about some of the controversy in germany right now regarding the comments made by the countries now ex navy chief. as we find that report there. how has kiev reacted to what he said? i think these are, these are these, these mentions of this now retired navy chief, i have really galvanized her a feeling that has been lingering in key if that to germany is an unreliable partner. because the 2 main reasons are not stream to which would, as people see it here considerably weaken ukraine's position by making it less relevant as a country for gas transits. and the other thing is germans refusal to provide weapons to ukraine, m a. and that does not only include that germany does not sell itself weapons to
9:08 am
ukraine, which is something that could be easily a circumvented by buying weapons everywhere anywhere but that germany is also blocking weapons deliveries. for example, from the baltic states or who need permission to re sell weapons that they once bought in germany or from the nato procurement agency and her while diplomats are not so confronted on this issue. ah, discontent is high and civil societies even accusing some people in civil society or even accusing germany of sabotaging ukraine's efforts to defend itself. did all the chorus. why not meant he has buying a reporting from kia? thank him. attest, aid has now started arriving in tongue after last week's volcanic eruption, and su nami devastated much of the country in the south pacific. so far, 3 people had been reported to have died, that many more are still missing. and experts are only now able to assess the scale
