3:32 pm
horrible consequence. will head out. there is that. and have never. been in the same room together. before what will the autumn is a landscape hoping to get from this meeting a what will the- reputed be hoping to walk away with. right well soul i think come the level of donors liski came here a bit rattled and why because- before he left ukraine and even on his way here. they were quite massive demonstrations in key of. people saying no to capitulation towards russia so. they've there's a there's a lot of opposition to him doing anything anything at a all that gives any territory to russia. which doesn't bring the- you train russian border a conductor you crack and control. and also. it a lastingg cease their- attacks are meant withdrawal of all. amazed at is four. well. it was nice to come here. and say well if i come back to russia with nothing no
3:33 pm
one's going to say anything probably because he has no. in a viable opposition there so. put in is the type of fellow we've been watching him for a long time that it for the long game. if you can't gain anything here he'll go back to moscow and this fighting will continue so that's what we have to face a and the political situatioion has changed greatly since- the minsk agreement was signed back in at twenty six it hasn't it. i eat. for no matter how for example he is cold at to. reset relations with moscow tipsy better ties with russia and america is much weaker. as you mentioned patients at proceedings on are underway in the united states which affects washington's relationship with kiev as well. everything is up in the air right now isn't it it is and i you know i've spoken to many ukrainian didiplomats are just came from the halifax international security forum where there are that you print it. it's been just over there for example and i'm kind of feeling from the ins is. you know maybe. rethink things were just. blown it with all of the- of the white. back
3:34 pm
and also- angle of coal as reviewers know is going to be retiring. soon and- when he is eager for russian gas. mccrone has its own problems- i. want to reset relations with russia but he has problems here at home as well so. i think the they've they've kind of realize that so we have to toughen up and- maybe. come up with ouour own solutions to the problem. and in. what seems to be pretty disastrous timing for visor pacey had an announcement today for the world anti doping- organization- barring russia from taking part in the next two olympic games. fifa world cup of. this terrible for vision is that affect the spacing told. ananything extraordinarary and- i saw. boyd recounts putting. holding out of his limousine this more than one usually see and- you know. i think something like that really strikes at the russian hard at the russian pride. and that's something that he's going to have to go home and face because you know russians are huge sports fans and for their- athletes to be barred from. those two big events is a really really big deal i think. perhaps to a lot of people even bigger than the sanctions so he's going to have to deal with
3:35 pm
that somehow and- one more thing if i can i think it will serve to further- isolate russia russians i think will feel that they're more. isolated in the past and that isn't a good thing. at and of course. perhaps what could be seen as a- it is. the isn't going into this has said he is interested in gauging with the land ski. season summer donna someone he can do business with. all he had a very poor relationship with the previous year. and president portion because- at do you think they might be able to along the let's give ibm's what famous charm his. it's not his will come into play i don't think so i mean they've had two or three phone calls already they'd have had the confidence building measure in terms of the prisoner swap. there is s some despite some explosions everyday on the front line there's less off. and on so i think those positive signs have occurred and i think it is because putin hasas. s said lets try working with this new guy maybe you know they'll be some programs for it. and just funny
3:36 pm
