2:10 pm
the alliance is even considering deploying the new battle groups, in addition to the for multinational battalions already in place. in estonia, latvia, lithuania and poland. therefore, battle groups were deployed in response to russia's annexation of crimea. in 2014 nato members argued then that they cannot ignore russia, breaking international rules and undermining peace and stability. and now nato is confronted again with what they describe as aggressive behavior and its members are responding with reinforcements. putin's goal was to have fewer nato troops close to russia's border, but so far he has produced the exact opposite. the current crisis policy analyst alden aaronson suggest, has galvanized the alliance brushes actions, especially since 2014 has given nato a new impetus for it, for its core mission,

2:13 pm
. jonathan crane is in beijing for us. i asked him, what has the response been to her role in the opening ceremony? certainly raised a few eyebrows that decision on human rights groups of accused china is engaging in a cheap propaganda ploy. essentially say, look, the way you guys are free, they can even take parts. and olympics opening ceremony though, try telling that to more than 1000000 week muslims her in the so called a reeducation center is human rights group. say that's genocide. they say they're being held there against their will. i'm forcing women to have sterilizations. china, of course, does deny all of this saying they're not engaging in human rights violations now at the athlete was 20 year old, didn't go lumberjack, she actually competed today in the cross country. for its part, the international olympic committee has defended the move to include her in the opening ceremony, saying ethnicity was not a factor on another topic. we hear some arrivals of tested positive cove. does that include any athletes? yes, certainly there are
