presidents at the cause at border guards fully cared for fear of any assault from outside. like what happened to the apple. however, it is recently announced that cause some forces by russian forces have fun. that grip on alma t, i pulled the local media reported also that the security forces have occupied the majority of the critical state building. the situation is very volatile. a coffee has been announced in by can or based through which all russian spaceflight launched, also reports of all men attacking military barks and other attempts to break into some prisons. but the monument of the former president, not by us, was brought down by protesters. despite these official reports, such as all under control, the situation remains very volatile. meanwhile, nato sector janet was warned that the russian threat to its member nations remains high. pharmacist spoke about russia military build up on the border with ukraine on a video. coal have been increasing tensions between russia,
10:17 pm
the us and european nations. in recent mom's president putin's expressed on ease about the organization's expansion and weapons deployments. in some of the former soviet states. the russian military buildup has not, not stopped. it continues. and there are gradually building up with more forces, more capable. it is. we see armored units when c artillery. we see comma to the troops. of course, that sends a message that there is a real risk for a new on conflict in europe. but that's a fact the want is so important. engage in dialogues out there is, jonah ha, has more details on this now can stolen those comments throughout that press conference? very much pointed to the substance of the foreign ministers meeting a short while before, which was an opportunity for them to talk about russia and ukraine, but principally to align their positions against one of them. the british foreign
10:18 pm
secretary, this trust, called russia's unacceptable aggression towards ukraine. so that the secretary general could come out afterwards, a project this sense of sort of unbending unity, strength and determination by nato in the face of what he describes is the real risk still of a russian invasion. he pushed back again against russia's notion, this demand really by president putin, for legal guarantees to be given that data won't ever take ukrainian as a member, that it won't expand any further east eastwards to take in other countries like georgia. and he said there was a pathway for dialogue and diplomacy to go along potentially a positive one. but he said it was important to, to prepare for it to fail. and for a clear message to be sent to mister putin. if, if they failed, the consequences would follow specifically politically economic and financial
10:19 pm
sanctions. as we've heard all of this preparatory really to senior high level meetings next week between russia and the united states in geneva, on monday, also between nature of the russia council. on wednesday, they haven't met for 2 years, a potential there to move things along. if this unity can be upheld and if this message can be clearly projected to president putin, the consequences will follow otherwise. and that's, i think what mr. stoughton set out to achieve this afternoon will know that john ventures made his 1st comments is being detained by australian immigration officials. the tennis was number one promise, more details about the medical exemption. he says, allows him into the country as a 2nd player was held, check player renata voter cova is now in say, melbourne hotel, said she also have permission to play in the australian open, but now plans to leave the country. check foreign ministry says it has made a diplomatic processed on her behalf. and then supporters of jokers which gathered

10:21 pm
those people are there because they don't have a valid, these are all they are here illegally. he in australia for maybe a number of reasons we treat all. busy people who are in the immigration detention fairly cambodian prime minister and san is on a 2 day visit to me. and mom is a 1st regional leader to enter the country since in electrical last year. and many a concern at the authoritarian that his trip is going to bring some degree of legitimacy to me and mars military hunt am tony chandler ports from ne brain thailand. cambodian prime minister, who anson, takes a few uncertain steps as he starts an official today visit to me and mom. he's the 1st head of state to visit myanmar since the coo last february, while a military has rolled out the red carpet, few others welcome the trip. on social media and side man, mom has been full of images like this. people showing their anger at hanson. those

10:23 pm
