10:02 pm
threatened economic sanctions against russia. if it launches any aggression. in the last hour, he's held a call with the leaders of britain, france, germany, and italy to discuss his talks with putin. let's get off my white house correspond . kimberly, how can, kimberly, or the main point to the president biden wants to make today? well, what we know from a senior administration official is that the message that you as president joe biden intended to convey is that there would be inflicted on russia, punishing economic and financial sanctions if it chose to invade ukraine. now what we know is that in terms of those sanctions, this could mean that it would essentially isolate russia from the global financial system. this would be done in coordination with european allies, including italy, the u. k. france and germany. and as you mentioned, it was a coordination that was carefully planned out in advance of this call,
10:03 pm
not only with consultations that took place prior to the video link meeting between the u. s. president of the russian leader, but also afterwards. so we know that this is the message that was conveyed, even as the russian side we know is accusing the united states a fear mongering in terms of why it is so worried that is the u. s. intelligence that indicates that there has been a massing of russian troops along the border with ukraine. so this is something that is of concern to the united states, but also to the world leaders. and particularly european leaders who are now working with the united states to coordinate this response that would be at the 1st stage, at least one of punishing economic sanctions. and what other topics came up? well, according to white house, read out there were other issues that were discuss, not just ukraine. we know that the united states has had a real problem with ransomware. attacks on businesses pipelines that have fed the
10:04 pm
east coast of the united states and even hospitals. and we know that the price tag for that in terms of the rats were paid to these companies that are operating out of russia is somewhere in the neighbourhood of $1600000000.00 since 2011. so this is something that came up when the 2 leaders met last june in geneva, but also they talked about it again and we'll continue to do so. we also know that they're looking for areas of cooperation with respect to shared concerns, particularly when it comes to iran. and we also know that they are looking to further that strategic security dialogue that began in geneva, switzerland, a one that could eventually lead to a foundation of future arms control agreements. so we're looking for more details on a lot of this, and that is going to be coming up any moment. now, when the national security adviser takes to the white house briefing room to update the press corps on the details of this telephone call, or rather video link call between the u. s. president joe biden and the russian
10:05 pm
leader vladimir putin committee. thank you very much. we'll bring you that to briefly when it happens in time, but it's mrs. lifers in moscow and wanted put in want to get out of this meeting. the kremlin has been pushing for this meeting for several weeks now talking, talking it up, saying it once one. so it got the meeting that vladimir putin was looking for, and particularly the kremlin was pushing this idea that he does not want nato to expand for the eastwards. it does not want ukraine to join nato. ukraine's applications been on the table as since 2008. but russia considered that the u. s. is operating on it's doorstep that been us naval exercises with ukranian troops in the black sea. turkey has been supplying drones to crane on the u. s. military has also been supplying the ukrainian military all of these things. russia is,
10:06 pm
does not want to see happening. again, it has been looking for guarantees that it won't, the white house, joe biden, not able to give guarantees that putin is looking for probably bought him a person. has this bargaining chip. he has these troops gathered on the border with ukraine and estimate, suggest protect from u. s. military satellites. that if they, by the end of january, the early still have some $175000.00 troops there. and they'll be in a position to invade. should vladimir putin decide to do that? and it's pretty easy to get that actually there's been a kind of cold conflict rumbling on, hasn't since 2014. how does that play into everything while ukraine? yes. the mean, one of the major complaints has been the agreements reached the chief, the sci fi in the ukraine previously have not been observed. russia hasn't
10:07 pm
withdrawn. heavy artillery from occupied parts of eastern ukrainian or russian separatists. a based it hasn't allowed elections to go ahead in russian, dominates in russian, separate in areas of ukraine. these are the things minsk agreements, but the west is accusing russia of failing to add here to the will have been questions about that put, let me put in by joe biden biden as well today because that comes conflict is kept rumbling on. but there are enormous risks. vladimir putin should he decide to press forward with some sort of confrontation with ukraine. this is not like alex saying crimea, which was generally ethnic russian area. not was generally welcomed by the people who lived there. this is ethan ukrainians in ukraine. russia would have to fight them on a much better equipped ukranian army now than it was when crimea was annexed. yes, a much smaller army, but this would be a very, very dangerous and costly and personal terms clash between ukraine and russia. if
10:08 pm
it were to ever materialize, but it may thank you very much indeed. chance stratford, his means written to residence in naval in southeastern ukraine. he says as frustration that president zelinski hasn't done more to end the conflict. while the facts, all that 14000 people have been killed in the 7 half years of this conflict, the u. n says that it expects up to 3000000 people on both sides of the front line to need humanitarian assistance next year. and there is a just a growing sense amongst the people that you speak to who live in that contact zone or close to it of complete hopelessness and increasing anger. bear in mind that the ukrainian president ugly won his campaign. and one of the reasons why he won his presidential campaign in 2019, were promising that he was gonna end roches annexation of crimea and end the war in don vass while he's failed on both those accounts and arguably,
10:09 pm
seems more unable to do that. in a week, a position than he did at the start of his term. and the people that we've spoken to him, we spoke to somebody today who was, was angry, whose house had been described destroyed in the year in the fighting in 2015. and she didn't mean so words. she said that she wished, wished a similar fate on russian people. another person, interestingly though, said that some russians and ukrainians slobs and that they should come together and, and, and enjoying as one unified block if you like. and another man we spoke, you said how important it was. busy for the ukrainian government now to start talking to the separatists, something that the ukranian government has always refused to do because in their eyes, it would legitimize what they describe as a, a terror networks that are taking control of that area. ready but as i say, the underlying message that you get from people living in and around that area
10:10 pm
