4:15 pm
there's been a mention by almost every one of the ministers. he especially the secretary general of the nato, a yonce dalton, berrigan as well as the secretary of state of the united states. antony blinkin is also been what salton beg said, would be a heavy prize for russia to bay if it continues to a build up military force on the ukraine eastern borders. and they have mentioned also that the nato, in all of its activities, either the military buildup of the may of the nato in eastern europe or both in the baltic and black seas. it's only for the purpose of defense. he has mentioned that a few times actually, both in his doorstep and also in his statement during the riga security summit. so these are this issue of how to deal with this build up. it was mentioned by both bar is the u. s. and the nato, and as well as these also the idea of what to do if the of, if russia actually gets involved in the ukraine once again. so tim, beg,
4:16 pm
said that all that's been happening from the side of the nato is just that reaction . and it's not intended to actually a invoke, any conflict is actually to deter any conflict. and that said, that was been mentioned so far. we expect her not much to come out of the meeting itself. but more of the next steps that the ministry will agree to act if russia actually gets involved in ukraine. i'll continue watching that meeting very closely . adela al shanee speaking to us from the meeting we get thank santa to adela. well, it's not being invented. sniff, he joins us from moscow. bennett's and striving rhetoric from pigeon as this meeting takes place. it seems yeah, let me put in, says russia has got red lines. one of those red lines is the deployment of what he calls offensive missile capability in ukraine. he's talking there about missiles
4:17 pm
that could hit russian territory and then his foreign minister. so a lot of says he's worried about military maneuvers in the east of ukraine. this is this area occupied by these russian separatists. he believes they pose a threat to russia, and russia is ready to respond if needed. but look at all of this within this context and that is in april. very similar things are happening. lot of build up of russian troops along the border with ukraine. and lo and behold, a month later, the white house says that joe biden is arranging to hold a summit with vladimir putin and everything comes down again in recent days. here, the credit has said they are talking to the white house about the possibility of another summit. between fuson and biden, may be by the end of the year, or certainly early in 2020 to the white house as its nothing about any plans for summit, but admits it's talking to russian officials behind the scenes about ukraine,
4:18 pm
bernard smith, air with all the latest for us from moscow. thank you so much, ben as well. let's bring in p. j. crowley. he's a former us assistant secretary of state, and he also worked with the nate, her secretary general during the 1999 course of crisis. he joins us now from virginia. mr. currently, in your reading, we've obviously had a lot of speculation. want all persons intentions here. while putin's intentions is to make sure that any developments along his periphery are, are resolved or unresolved, you know, with his input. mean, if we step back for a 2nd, we have seen this churn in ukraine now for 10 years and put in just wants to be sure whether we're talking about ukraine, talking about development in europe. you know that, that russia, its interests will be protected. and, and put in it, moscow will, will be a destination for those who want to discuss global affairs with us. so with nato,
4:19 pm
i'm curious, what do you think nato's options are at this point? we're obviously seeing a build up of troops. is there a scenario where western powers get backed into a corner and then forced to take some kind of military action i tony blink and others have been careful to say that would be consequences without drawing a firm red line. i think 2 things are happening here. on the one hand putting, you know, keeps a, you know, ukraine in a simmer to make sure that, that ukraine stays broadly speaking within, you know, rushes influences. that doesn't want to see ukraine drift towards the e u. and especially drift towards nato. by the same token, you know what's happening ukraine, you know, it has brought nato back to its origins. there were a lot, we no longer talking about necessarily, or we're still talking about global a global mission for nato. but we're reinforcing the,
4:20 pm
the fact that native exist 1st and foremost, to protect you. europe, from threats from nato. it's one of the reasons why the meeting itself isn't in latvia, because the baltic states others in eastern europe. you know, they're focused on russia. b r, especially d, as, as they see, you know, these developments in ukraine. well, there's also been plenty of speculation about russia involvement with the situation on the bellow, russian and polish border. i'm curious, how much of this do you think is about applying pressure for russia to get what it wants from western powers like approval for the north stream to pipeline. for instance. i, you know, there are 2 things. it is about applying pressure to make sure that russian prerogatives are protected. but it's also put this effort to maintain russian relevance, you know, in a wide sweep of issues, whether you're talking about energy in europe, whether you're talking about ukraine, whether you're talking about syria, iran,
4:21 pm
other, other locations. you remember factor in the obama administration, the president portrayed russia as a regional power goodness, pushing back on that, saying that russia remains a global power and it needs to be consulted on the all of these rain full range of issues. i see person today has also been reasserting his right to run for reelection, all the domestic considerations as well. hey, when it comes to the fostering we're seeing abroad. ultimately, everything for vladimir putin is about domestic politics. and, and his push to, to bring, you know, russia back from the end of the cold war, which he thought was a catastrophe for russia is very, very popular. and so he does, you know, sure, apply these, insert russia into these issues, you know,
4:22 pm
to demonstrate its relevance. and to protect his popularity with a broad swap of the russian people. he's probably the former us assistant secretary of phase who also worked with naser. thanks so much for joining us here on out there. so you're welcome. now, moving on and the caribbean island nation of barbados is now republic after ending its ties with the british monarchy. sandra mason has been sworn in as president. she replaces queen elizabeth as the head of state. our latin america editor lucio newman, was at the festivities there in bridgetown. ah, the declaration of the world newest republic was marked by celebrations ah, with the music song and dance that barbados is so well known for ah, but above all, it was time for solemnity. prince charles arrived for the last time as the representative of the queen by businesses head of state, marking the end of the british monarchies,
4:23 pm
ties with the island once known as britons caribbean, crown jewel, the creation of this republic of the new beginning. but it also marks a point on a continuum, a milestone on the long road. you have not only travelled, but which you have built. then the british military flag was lowered, replaced by one that represents only barbados, which now has a new president, sandra mason. we now turn our vessels bow towards the new republic. redo this so that we may seize the full substance. all were sovereignty. barbados was britton's 1st and most important slave colony, whose sugar feels produced vast wealth for the empire. it gained independence only 55 years ago, but retained the monarchy. barbados became one of the queens,
4:24 pm
16 realms. but for many, the time had come to cut the umbilical cord with the monarchy. to wayne a bayesian as by bay dns called themselves cells, tiny salty fruit, the grows by the seaside, a specialty here. he agrees with the change. i propose be a positive, but one of us is able to run the quote for, you know, it was meant from decisions. but others, like 19 year old could shawna says that the decision to break with the monarchy was imposed on them by the prime minister without consultation. they wasn't even as they there one day as you see. if the probably and now was the, the new president will have a largely ceremonial role behind the prime minister and barbados will remain a part of the british commonwealth, which queen elizabeth heads. this former quaker plantation has been the residence of the governor general, the queen's representative in barbados for the last 55 years. now. it will be the residence of this country's new president,
