she was all has 28 different hours losses. they are peers and rivals with one dealing goal to help smart nature. one of the most insightful discoveries in the history of mankind. on the brink of eternal life, starts for june, 16th on d. ah ah, that says these are the news lines from berlin for us orders some of its embassy staff to leave ukraine. the state department also says that we'll have limited
ability to assist any americans in russia, all rejecting calls for immediate sanctions on moscow. also coming up a curfew is imposed in brooklyn, of faso, after people barricade the streets with burning tires in support of soldiers staging a mutiny. ah hello. then i'm really mohammed, the us has ordered the families of all american personnel that it's embassy in ukraine to leave the country. non essential stock also asked to leave. the state department says the decision has been under consideration for some time. it comes as talks between the u. s. secretary of state antony blinking, and russia's foreign minister. so j love rob failed to con. tensions last week, as russian troops continued to mass on ukraine's border.
well, let's bring in stacy beavens, who's in the studio for us. what more can you tell us about this, the state department order? well, the state department is not calling an evacuation. they say that this has been in the works for some time. but when you look at it on its face, it looks like the u. s. is very concerned about probable military action from moscow. you see the military lining up or all along the border. so they're concerned about that. and so they're not saying that people have to leave, but they're urging american citizens whether they work for the embassy or not to leave. and what is the significance of the timing around this? we know that they've overseas sent in more military equipment as well. right. and they're the state department sent out a bulletin saying that there are reports that russia is planning significant military action against ukraine. so that's why the u. s. is sending in weapons and such and they also don't want to get flat footed,
get caught flat footed. you remember how leaving afghanistan was such a debacle, and this is not the same thing, of course, but you don't want to see people be touch fighting to leave and not being able to do that. so there are urging people to get going in on friday. the talks between the us and russia did not go when you, where they stalled. and sunday britain accused the kremlin of seeking to its top pro russian leaders in kiev. so this is, this is the issue. the u. s. does not want to get caught flat footed if in fact there is an invasion. so much of this is more taking precautions ahead of time. exactly. ok, stacy, thank you very much. you're welcome. meanwhile, a military aid is arriving in care from the us, poland, britain, and elsewhere. and calls are growing for immediate economic sanctions on moscow. but washington says, diplomacy needs to be given more time it's
been dubbed the new cold war with relations between russia and the west, as biting as the weather on ukraine's east and boulders with 3 loans. the british foreign office is publicly accused. president putin of planning to install this prohibition politician was as a new ukrainian leader almost a little bit yet. had moore, i have a theme critic of key f pivot to the west has denied the claims even most of them, and the russian foreign ministry, branded the assertion fake news. the u. s. and the u. k. are sending military aid to ukraine with baltic nations set to follow. germany's hands off approach is attracting criticism. but the u. s. secretary of state denied the divisions. i've been on the phone and saw might my own a german counterpart. ah, for mister r burbock,
and i can tell you that the germans very much, i'm sure our concerns and our resolute and being a determined are to respond to respond swiftly effectively. and in the united way. up to a $100000.00 russian troops have amassed at ukraine's boulders over recent months with moscow demanding that ukraine will never be allowed to join nato. putin is also denied. he is planning to talk. but those living on ukraine's frontier with russia a fall from reassured with life on the edge of something very terrible is caring. so yes, i can say i'm of scale for now. daily life continues, which is a political temperatures plummet. people here all to away how quickly, but could all change?
well, let's bring in michael kim edge. he's a history professor at the catholic university of america and a former state department, russia, ukraine, experts under president obama. well, it's good, great to have you with us here. and d, w. news. what's your assessment of the situation? is there a real threat that russia could invade ukraine? oh, certainly i think there is the capacity. is there in a sense, the motive is there for russia, where you can see that russia is looking for at the moment is that is the pretext. and the question now seems to be more one of the timing of whether or not this is going to happen. and now that we've seen the u. s. and other countries sending in more military aid to ukraine. how much of a deterrence would this be for russia? i think quite modest. i think if we were to speak of true deterrence, we would speak of air power and a western commitment of troops. and there's not a single government from washington to london to berlin, to brussels. that's it,
that's willing to do that. so it's important. symbolically is important for the brain, people in the government, but it's probably not much of the military factor. now, when it comes to japanese position, the country is being accused by ukraine's government of not showing enough support compared to its other nato allies. would you say there's any truth in that? i don't, i think that, you know, looking back historically, back to 2014 with his grades began. germany was a crucial part of the sanctions regime. and i think in the coming complex germany will be part of the sanctions regime. it's been driven policy for a long time, going back to america, not to be involved militarily. so that's really germany sovereign choice and it doesn't indicate german indifference or lack of engagement. well, the current sense at the moment is that diplomacy is not dead yet. so what are your projections for the upcoming talks? we're going to be seeing this week. i think the chance rec implemented success and
it's good to keep hammering away at it. but it's vanishingly small. and it looks like the rushing demand are waiting on line from the west perspective. and so one imagines when the response is given the west, that it will not yield that russia is gonna sort of move to a different phase of the conflict. michael, can i just thank you very much for your time. thank you for having me though, as ukraine gets more military age in response to russia's build up of troops, other european countries also making moves to counter the tensions. the idea like island of god, land in sweden is seen tanks and troops rolling through normally quiet streets behind the historic fortress walls of the islands capital, vis be life. looks like a film set. got bond is a popular baltic vacation destination. but in recent days, military patrols have been stepped up here. the tanks and heavily armed soldiers
show that sweden is ready to defend itself. the last days where work for them worked with enhancing our situational awareness. and our get some more freedom of actions actually to be prepared if something should happen. the soldiers and military equipment were brought here from the mainland. military experts funded by sweden's defense ministry, believed that if russia suddenly decides to target the baltic, states got land would be strategically important. if you controlled island of got land, you can prevent those 3 enforcements arriving and set up a 5th complete for the operations that you want to do. got landless, mainly from tourism, but now some residents fear the island could become the focal point of world events . i have no idea so scary. i don't think the russian come and take
it. dialing goes off. no. most of the islands to residents think the reinforcements recently deployed. so got one or more a sign of vigilance than a harbinger of a possible conflict. while his look at some other stories making headlines around the world, thousands of people are demonstrating in the u. s. capital against coven 19 measures. like wearing mosques and proof of us vaccination, they marched, danced and listened to speakers who demanded people continue to have to continue to have a choice about whether they are vaccinated or not. some say that they should not be forced to take it. the spokesman for the taliban colds talks between the group and west and officials, a step to legitimize the afghan government to, for you were law. as i made the comment off to meeting with women's rights activists and human rights defenders in oslo, norway, it's part of a 3 day summit,
meant to deal with an honest dance, growing humanitarian crisis. arminius, president, our marines are kizzy on has resigned. citing his inability to influence domestic and foreign policy. armenia is facing a political crisis since clashes broke out with neighboring as the by john in 2020, in the disputed region. ok, no. going to cut about how curfew has been imposed in brooklyn of faso. and that's off the soldiers staged a mutiny demanding more support for the fight against armed groups. they also called for the military leaders that to step down hundreds of protest is gathered to show the support for the soldiers. some said fire to the ruling parties, headquarters and the sound of gunfire was reported near the president's residence, whose whereabouts is unknown. the ominous sound of tear gas fired on protests as by security forces. on saturday,
a crowd gathered in the keno fast those capital wagons. do grew dissatisfied with the government and president rock of boris inability to control that you had an insurgency. this troubled the country, the 7 years useful crew, earth or maps. rock must go. we all agree on that. we believe that the government is catastrophic is well, good luck. we're not a catastrophic, catastrophic in always, especially when it comes to security, it will apply reply security day when not bad. remember the next day, further signs of unrest. this time from the army. heavy gunfire coming from several barracks in the capital plus, disrupted internet connections prompted fears of a clue. the defense minister was quick to get on the air to deny the government had lost control. mobile immersion would equal to wilma, the government has confidence in the army which remains committed to the republic. we asked the people to remain calm to carry out their duties. we are following the
developing situation so we can provide information on the real reasons for the shootings who handle good. so i can tell you that for the moment everything is under control and we ask our army to continue to support our republic and carry out its mission to protect its territory. and its people. it is, it will show and the potential to latoya, it will kill us. but his words did little to calm. the protesters who rampaged and set fire to the ruling parties, headquarters more demonstrations, sprang up across the capital in support of the mutilating soldiers that up at the lack of support in fighting the islamists, the soldiers demanded more resources and at the military top brass be sacked all of this just a week after 12 people were arrested on suspicion of planning to destabilize institutions in the country. i am going to speaker on sunday by munich beat
