palaces of power, europe's leaders are engaging in a diplomatic push to defuse the crisis on ukraine's borders. the leaders of germany, france, and poland tried to show a united front in berlin. while the guidelines of our common goal is to prevent a war in europe. but deployments of russian troops on the border with ukraine is very worrying. and our assessment here is very much the same as is our position here is does he didn't oh, glossy, the meeting followed a diplomatic, let spy, emanuel micron, who pushed for further talks on visits to moscow and kiev local missouri. i believe that we have concrete, practical solutions that will allow us to move forward. we have had the opportunity to discuss this together. i've also had the opportunity to discuss this with president putin, as i have done with my european partners and several of our allies. oh,
1:03 pm
it was you lose, it was one of those practical solutions could be resolving a long running conflict within ukraine's own borders in the east and don bass region. ukrainian soldiers have been fighting russian back separatists over 7 years ago. france and germany helped negotiate a p steel between ukraine, the separatist forces and their back a russia. but the ceasefire agreements, the so called minsky chords never held. now experts think these diplomatic channels and the minsk agreements could be revived. there is one try, which is a circle, normandy format, which is about the implementation of the minster agreements about the us. it should sure of ukraine and a quarter his credit as be known as successful in rejuvenating, of almost which every resource back in november that was, that was pretty much dead to us at 1st dr. young trial is the more broader
1:04 pm
discussion on the circle secuity architecture in europe and this above alms control . this is about confidence and security building measures, but a reduction in weapons and troops along ukraine's border and in eastern europe looks unlikely. the kremlin denied reports that putin told micron. russia would not further increase military tensions and pull troops out of bella bruce later this month. meanwhile, mall plains carrying us soldiers touch down in nato member, poland. while the diplomatic channels are still open, the build up of soldiers in the region continues. well, let's talk about some of the developments with theresa fallon, director of the set of a russian europe, asia studies and brussels. we've heard from mccaul saying that they have concrete, practical solutions that will allow them to move forward. do you have any idea what
1:05 pm
he's talking about that? well, that's quite interesting because it seems that the kremlin has already tried to step back. what micron has said that he got out of the kremlin so i think that's worrying sign. also after he went to kia, they both present zalinski of ukraine and also as an account stepped away from the idea of the finland ization. that's almost a bridge or 2 about trying to put you can on this path. maybe they did discuss this, but i think in the public domain, that is something extremely sensitive. and because of 8 years of war and 14000 deaths in ukraine, it's actually made ukraine more pro western. so this idea might have reached its sell by date, this idea of a finland ization of ukraine is so sensitive because there's also this kind of growing nationalism and you can because of 8 years of war, maybe the stuff should been taken far earlier. and in addition to that, i mean putting couldn't resist taking a little job as president of crime,
1:06 pm
saying that after 5 years, 5 hours of dialogue with him, it was torture. so it's kind of a mixed message at the kremlin, is sending in regard to my crowns. meeting with him, what about this talk of proposing a neutral status for ukraine in order to satisfy rushes security demands? what do you make of that? as i just mentioned that i think that this is one possible offering, but will the ukrainian public agree to that? and then also sends wearing messages to both sweden and finland because they fear that the door to nato could be closing. their status is neutral and what will be the bigger security implications for the region and many. and let's say that if you get that now to pretend he will ask for more in the region, because let's remember his 2 grand agreements that he's asked me to end. the u. s. for is that all troops move out of central and eastern europe since 1997,
1:07 pm
any country that join nato. so this might just be the order to a much bigger change in the security landscape. russia and beller was conducting joint drills in belgrade. how do you assess this in light of a crisis? i think it's an extremely worrying message because if you look at the map here, it's not very far at all from beller ruse. and in addition to that prism a chrome, so that was one of the things that he received from president putin, that there would be some form of de escalation because that's what everyone wants to see in order to continue dialogue. but president putin didn't really say that that would happen. he says that he's moving troops or doing exercises, nothing to worry about here. but if you look at the strategic map there, i mean that's an incredible pincer movement. and it means that perhaps developer is, is far more in moscow's orbit than other people are comfortable with, especially other countries in the region. what about the western build up of trips then which has begun to, is that the right signal to be sending?
1:08 pm
well right now there are about a $130000.00 troops that rosa has put into place. the west is kind of putting in $300.00 troops to germany, for example. so i think it's, it's a sign of assurance because these are members of nato. but i think that this doesn't even come close to what russia is doing. theresa felon director of the center for russia, europe, asia studies. thank you very much for being on the show. appreciate it. thank you. canadian prime minister justin trudeau has bound to bring an end to a truck, a protest against pandemic restrictions. now, in its 2nd week, the protests of paralyzed parts of the capital ottawa, bringing the business district to a standstill and blocking the busiest border. crossing with the u. s ottawa police are requesting back up from across the country almost 2 weeks into their seat in these protest is brush off another frozen auto morning. each day the hundreds of camped out truckers adjoined by support is the movement that began in response to
