moscow. sweeping security demands refusing, among other things to rule out future nato membership for ukraine. in its written reply to moscow's proposals, washington offers what it calls a serious diplomatic path out of the crisis. in recent weeks, russia has massed some 100000 troops nearest border with ukraine stirring fears of an attack. a military exercise on the ukrainian border. russia is flexing its muscles while washington has handed her a written response to moscow's demand. or response to russia reflects what i said in heave berlin and geneva. last week. we're open to dialogue. we prefer diplomacy and we're prepared to move forward. where there is the possibility of communication cooperation. if russia deescalate, is regression tort, ukraine stops the inflammatory rhetoric and approaches. discussions about the
9:03 am
future security in europe. in a spirit of reciprocity, our responses were fully coordinated with ukraine and our european allies and partners with whom we've been consulting continuously for weeks. the response was delivered personally by the u. s. and plaster to russia. moscow wants nato to close its doors to ukraine. something washington is firmly opposed to nato has also sent a written reply rejecting moscow's demands while we are hoping for. i'm working for a good solution. the escalation, we also prepared for worst under their, for in parallel with our efforts on the dialogue track. we are also a increasing the redness. our forces are on a dollars have also increased the preston sir, partly to conduct surveillance,
9:04 am
to monitor, to have the best possible picture all the developments, sir, in, in, in the round ukraine, but also to broader reassurance sir, to, to alice in paris. there was diplomacy at a lower level. the no monday format brought germany, france, russia, and ukraine together for another round of talks or so far didn't all. the very fact that the work of enormity format has resumed is a very positive signal was we had really very comprehensive talks voe. they weren't easy. let's call it a key, an audit of where we are today. i am on la sherwood, near us. the next meeting will take place soon, maybe even in 2 weeks, and it will take place in berlin. we agreed to continue our dialogue. lodging assured yellow. as the u. s. and its allies, russell with rushes,
9:05 am
demands of frosty atmosphere spreads along ukraine's border. dw terry schultz has been covering the story from the beginning and joins us now from brussels. terry, the u. s. a. nato have now delivered written responses to russia. security demands . what's their message? the message, terry, is what we've been hearing now for weeks. that it is very important for moscow to understand that the u. s. and nato want to continue the diplomatic dialogue, but that some of these demands are simply not acceptable. the large one being, of course, that nato would agree not to expand to other countries. notably ukraine at this point. so this is not coming as a surprise to moscow. what's in these letters, which i might point out, remain classified at this point, but which we heard about in press briefings last night. but at the same time, both the u. s. and nato are willing to talk about other issues that are important
9:06 am
to moscow. nuclear policy arms control, possibly even a reduction in military exercises if moscow would agree to the same. so there are points that the u. s. and nato would like to see russia engage on, but they simply had to put this in writing as the kremlin requested to show that they were willing to continue the diplomatic path and very much hope that moscow will do the same. meanwhile, terry of russia has been carrying out military maneuvers, not just on ukraine's borders, but elsewhere as well. ukraine is not the only country feeling threatened, is it? that's right of after 2014. then there was this big shock that russia would actually cross internationally recognized borders and sees territory that belong to another sovereign nation. so now with this huge build up and the fact that no one can say exactly what's in vladimir putin's mind, there are other countries worried about their territory in the baltic sea in
9:07 am
particular. and sweden has this beautiful island of got linden situated right off kalynne and grad, so not far from from russian territory. and from where you could, if you wanted to, if you sees to this island block both air and naval access to the baltic allies of estonia, lead in lithuania, as well as to finland, which is not a nato ally. so i went to got one to see for myself, just how vulnerable it seems in normal times, the only large groups of foreigners coming to got land or the 1000000 tourists who flocked to the swedish island every year. but now the swedish government is preparing for the possibility of unwelcome visitors as russian president vladimir putin's military maneuvers spread concern far beyond ukraine. we cannot exclude an armed attack against sweden. and what we want to do just now is to be very clear that we are ready to turn sweden. and because of that,
9:08 am
we are also doing what for doing owned island. mclaughlin. kirkland is a do strategic prize jewel in the baltic c as central for nato's access to its baltic allies and its swedish and finish partners. from this island, you cannot control both of the air and sea waste in the region. garland was a key military asset for sweden, for centuries, until 2005, when the swedish government assessed post cold war tensions as so low that it disbanded all the permanent military units here in what turned out to be just wishful thinking. that's why the swedish government has been re arming the island since shortly after russia's seizure of ukraine's crimea region and has intensified it in recent weeks. that gauntlet could be next in the kremlin site is no longer unthinkable for swedes watching the russian government continue to escalate a bit like a game of chicken. we're one of the drivers rush on this case as you're stronger the steering wheel out the window. so we're having to unfortunate to some kind of
9:09 am
crush in my view, defense minister hook this believes the country has enough friends to feel safe, even without being a member of nato. we have deep grace with united states who have us, you chaos. we're a close partner, we are a name to partnership. we have a north nordic solidarity, a doctrine, and we also have a solidarity doctrine in the repeal in union. but being a partner to need. oh, doesn't provide the guarantee of new tool defense that allies get. and wit, pull yonce in head of the swedish parliament defense committee feels his country needs. we can hope we can assume we can wish that we get the support from natal. but we can look know, uncle rejoined alliance. a recent poll shows an increasing number of swedes support nato membership, but that still only amounts to about a 3rd of the population. for now, anyway, if something very serious would happen in this port of the world, mister booth and decide so on something in the baltic region here,
9:10 am
i think we would apply very quickly. but then the question would be whether nato would accept a country already in dire straits, especially if gauntlet were gone. is there a real fear, terry? that got man could see a russian invasion. i don't think the swedish government is scare mongering by any stretch. what they say consistently is simply that they can't rule it out. and this is what you hear from analysts both on and off. the record that no one knows what russian president vladimir putin is going to do. they can only measure what he's capable of doing. and he's capable of doing a lot. and as you saw, my pisa russia has sent naval ships into the baltic sea just sailing by there, just keeping an eye on things. and that strikes fear, or at least concerned in the hearts of many. so what the swedish government is doing is just getting ready, just in case they say, terry,
9:11 am

9:16 am
many survivors who are still alive today were children of the time dw met up with one woman imprisoned in germany's bergen belsen camp. she endured unspeakable horrors, but remains determined to bear witness. i should warn you that our next report contains graphic images that some viewers may find disturbing. the 1st thing that hit us was the smog and the smell. there was a terrible smell and then you through that smoke, you saw people. and then people by their really skeletons and, and they're shuffling along like zombies. and they'll shuffle along and just collapse and die with marla. trib itch is back at the place which nearly killed her. bergen belsen and nancy concentration camp which killed tens of
9:17 am
thousands of others. the 91 year old is here to tell her story. with ever a few a living survivors, it feels increasing the urgent to pass it on. when she arrived at bergen belsen, marlo was just 14. she had already spent years in a ghetto, in hiding and as a slave laborer. she was polish, and jewish, and every one in her family was either dead or missing, a part from her cousin anne who was 7. the girls arrived together. they were so over crowded. they had no room for us. and the dead bodies all over the place and the piles of bodies and piles of naked twisted, decaying corpses. it was a horrific sight when british forces liberated bergen belsen. on the 15th of
9:18 am
april. 1945. they found tens of thousands of unmarried bodies and $60000.00 prisoners on the brink of death. whether moments that you, you didn't think that you would survive up. so lift clear, it didn't think anybody would survive. people are just dying at such a rate. and it was obvious, even if helped it didn't come when it did. i mean the whole camp would have just died out health to mentally after the war mana and her cousin ann was sent with other children to sweden. and then a letter arrived from mother's brother ben. he had survived a different camp and made it to the u. k. she soon went to join him for many years . marla tripage didn't talk about her childhood experiences,

9:20 am
what i heard from outfit survivors when i was there 2 years ago who said that there's also always something more behind anti semitism that this is about and really suppressing people that it goes to the very heart of what society is made of so once again, like every year, we will hear representatives try to find words for what was the unspeakable. that was planned 80 years ago in what is known as the van, the conference which was commemorated last week. where in a kind of board style meeting and something was planned that became a breach of civilization. so a day of commemoration here in germany that is also accompanied by the we remember hash tag with we remember that predicted to official buildings here in germany together. thank you very much. the w g political editor, mikaela,
