i'm fil gale. welcome to the program. you are a secretary of state and to me, blanket has urged more dialogue to resolve tensions between russia and the west. over i fear invasion of ukraine was speaking in melbourne following a meeting of the quad alliance that includes australia, india and japan. made it clear that tensions with moscow have reached a dangerous level. simply put, we continue to see very troubling signs of russian escalation, including new forces arriving at the ukrainian border. and as we said before, we're in a window, when an invasion could begin at any time. will you cried, is accusing russia after fighting a hybrid war in the black sea by blocking access to its ports, rushes,
preparing for us weeping. naval drills in the black sea on the sea as the sea of as of, in the coming days, effectively closing down large areas for commercial. shipping rushes move. 6 amphibious assault vessels into the black sea for the exercise was russian troops and ships in circle ukraine. nato has been bolstering its eastern flank, but since you crate, not a nato member, it's unclear what the alliance would do. if russia does invade alliances, secretary general yes dalton, burke visited the black sea port of constantine in romania. as a 1000 us troops arrived at the military base there. we continued to reinforce our eastern flank with more ships, with more plains, with more troops. and we also ready to quickly reinforce if needed, we have increased the red and so the nato response force and we can deploy more forces on short notice if needed. us get more on that nato thinking from my
d. w correspondent, terry schultz sat in brussels. welcome at terry. so we seen that us forces arriving in romania. what are they there for? yeah, feel not just in romania, also in estonia, also more us forces in poland. and the thinking here is that the u. s. and the other nato allies who are also sending other resources, want to try to deter the kremlin from thinking that there is any way that it can win a war, not just with ukraine, but of course, anything that would spill over the border into nato countries. i mean, this is largely about a psychological impact, really trying to convince russian president vladimir, that this is not in his interest. i expected that next week when nato defense ministers meet here in brussels. we will also see more deployments right there to romania where the secretary general was to day. the french have offered to lead a battalion in romania like the ones we've seen in the baltic states and poland.
and this is something romania has been asking for for a long time. and now with the build up right there in, on the border with ukraine, nato and the allies are deciding it's time to put those forces there. all right, so this is not necessarily for you crimes benefit. this is more sending a signal to, to russia that even if you make it to ukraine thus far and no further. well, as you've said, ukraine is not a nato member and therefore doesn't have any guarantee of mutual defense. even though allies and the u. s. government have spoken out very strongly to moscow that they better not think about it, but yet nato's job is to defend the allied territory. and so that's what these forces are therefore, and as you heard, secretary general stilton berg says, there are thousands more who would be ready as a rapid response, in case the conflict were to spill into nato's territory. but this is really about trying to convince the kremlin that this is, is, you know, a really bad idea and putting the troops and tanks on these borders are not in high
enough numbers that they could actually fight russia. but they're, there is a deterrent. and we have nato member states, so doing a weapons to ukraine, which is to say, is not a nato a member. so given that night, so as a defensive, a large project could explain what's going on. this has been a controversial issue for many years. for a long time, there were not weapons with lethal cover capabilities sent to ukraine. even though it's been under threat since 2014, of course, at a much higher level when, when russia invaded ukraine and took crimea. but the decision was made they did while ukraine wasn't going to have the reassurance of nato coming to its defense as a whole. that allies very much wanted to help you crane defend itself. and the rhetoric has been changing, and recent days you've heard it. nato secretary general stilton burger, u. k prime minister boris johnson yesterday. say to to moscow that ukraine will
fight if you should come over this border. the ukrainians have capabilities. we have trained them, we have provided them weapons and this will not be easy for you. so this is part of making ukraine able to defend itself in the absence of those article 5 mutual assurance guarantees. thank you for a terry schultz and breasts. i will take a look now as some of the other stories are making news around. the worlds will start in iran where people have been celebrating the 43rd anniversary of the islamic revolution. a sum set fire to us flags or talks aimed at reviving runs 2015 nuclear agreement. resume this week with us urgent tech ran to reach a deal quickly. that hardline president abraham racy, told revelers to rob was not pinning its hopes on any deal. 30 nations have committed to protecting the world's oceans from harmful human activity initiative. drawing i thought a summer time frances atlantic coast targets plastic pollution in particular,
