6:02 pm
with kiev, and moscow will have their work cut out for them. after the week ended under the shadow of a new looming crisis. the government says russia is planning a full flag operation in ukraine to justify an invasion. the kremlin denies the accusation. we have correspondence covering all angles of this story. dosa jabari live for us in moscow. but 1st, let's go to our pentagon correspondent, rosalind jordan live for us in washington, d. c. hello, there, rose. what's the latest coming out of j. c? well, there hasn't been any announcement of follow on discussions between the americans and the russians. that was certainly the bite administration's hope after several days of intense diplomacy in geneva, in vienna and in brussels. but that said the biden administration, according to some officials, apparently his lord, it's lawson and his being very vocal about what it describes as
6:03 pm
a very real threat from russia, not just to ukraine, but to western europe, sa stability. this is a situation where as you alluded, the americans are accusing the russians of staging operatives in various parts of eastern ukraine, essentially to cause chaos and to create a justification for a russian military invasion of eastern ukraine. the usaa says that it is making this information, although it's very scant available so that people understand what the real stakes are. the u. s. is also repeating that while it is providing military assistance to ukraine. the president joe biden has been adamant that u. s. troops will not be on the ground to defend ukraine, and that's mainly because even though the u. s. made promises to ukraine to us support, it's a security after it gave up its nuclear weapons program. the ukranian,
6:04 pm
the government is not a part of nato. and so the u. s. does not have a legal obligation excuse me, to support of militarily the ukrainians. now this is also a situation where the u. s. is of thanking the russians for taking down a notable law. ransomware group are called regal. a group that had been a targeting american businesses and holding their computer systems for millions of dollars and ransom. the russian government did make some arrest on friday. but it's not clear whether this development is going to be enough to try to reduce the tensions between the 2 countries. plenty of moving parts to the story. thank you very much for that update. rosalyn jordan live for us in washington day saying, all right, let's head to moscow now. why don't jabari standing by for us? joseph rusher is denying these allegations of this false flag attack. can you break it down for us?
6:05 pm
certainly the russian foreign minister say good lover of during his annual press conference on friday, stressed that russia's patience with the actions of the west is running out and that they are no longer going to wait around to have further talks. as far as the russian government is concerned, there will be no more dialogue with the united states in the coming weeks or months . they're now waiting for an official response from nato, about their concerns of ukraine or any other countries joining the 30 member alliance. the russian foreign minister also said that they, his country, has intelligence or reasons to believe that the u. s. and natal are likely in the coming weeks and months to be building up their troops alongside the russian border with the, using the pretext of the tensions with ukraine as an excuse to do so. and he said very clearly that that is not acceptable to the russian government, and that is very much a red line for this country. this is
6:06 pm
a sentiment that was also shared by the kremlin spokesperson earlier this week, following the 3 rounds of talks of various city european cities at between russia and the u. s. and european countries and nato. the sentiment here is that the talks were not successful and that the kremlin said that any kind of sanctions imposed by the u. s. government on russia will be comparable to severing ties with russia. so there is a sense that things have really not gotten any better through dialogue. and this diplomacy over the past week, but just they just highlighted house tense. the situation is and the diplomats that are on the way here. and we know that the german foreign minister will be arriving in moscow on tuesday in the hopes of trying to whole further discussions about the escalating the tensions. ok, thank you very much for breaking it down for us dosage of our life for us in moscow . okay. so let's take a closer look at the timeline of events leading up to this crisis since april last year. moscow has been deploying more than 100000 troops near its border with the
6:07 pm
crime. in december, president vladimir putin for the 1st time, laid out a set of security demands to the u. s. and it's nice so allies, among them denying ukraine and other ex soviet countries. nato membership, no meaningful progress has been made since despite recent high level meetings in geneva, brussels and vienna. and as we mentioned on friday, the u. s. government accused russia of plotting a so called false flag operation, the criminal code it a groundless suspicion for more analysis. let's bring in john hopes. he is the us ambassador. he was rather the us ambassador to ukraine, and he's now a senior director of the atlantic councils eurasia center in joins us live from virginia. hello there, john, thanks for being on this news. our so has diplomacy on ukraine, reached a stalemate, and where to from here. both the diplomacy on ukraine has achieved nothing because moscow's insisting on conditions of the united states and nato
6:08 pm
would never accept. the question is, is moscow doing this in order to get the rejection extend leaves into the ukraine? that's the big question. but diplomacy, meaning use of our non military persuasion is playing an important role. here. the russians don't like the series of measures and by and as has said, would follow a criminal invasion major, major sanctions, moving of nato forces for him to the east and certainly weapons to korean. and this may be playing a role in persuading, put to not to send his troops to you. so going forward, what shape would mil, military action take if russia was to invite? well, the military action is not going to be us troops fighting or nato to fighting russian troops. it would be nato forces becoming stronger along rushes borders. and as you
6:09 pm
just reported, glove rasa does not acceptable of other military steps would include sending more weapons from the united states and from nato states to cray. so i think those things also give moscow pause. they don't want to have more nato troops up near the border. they should not send their troops to commit another major aggression against ukraine. so if you say this gives mosque i, paul, is what she think their next steps will b r. one thing i'm, i am certain know they're trying to intimidate the united states nato ukraine into making concessions under the threat of them invasion. but the, with the talks through a whole this week in vienna, in geneva, in brussels, the dark yield, any success from oscar. now they say they don't want to have anymore talks because they're worthless, but they're still waiting for the response. a written response to the 2 draft trees
6:10 pm
they provide to the united states and nato. so they're still waiting for that. i think waiting for that gives a chance to consider, well, a way to step back from this crisis. why is that one of their conditions? one of the things that must has been calling for is to have ukraine. another ex, soviet countries remain out of nato. why is that so important for them? of they want to dominate the foreign policy of their neighboring states. they want to make sure that those states are under their influence. that's what this is all about. you know, are all the countries which have joy nato, since the end of the cold war did not join because neither was saying, please, because members, they joined russell, afraid of moscow's intentions. and mass girls persuade all these countries that they moscow or danger. this, this is the 3rd fact that we're julie was in the same, of course, is true of georgia and ukraine. moscow watched organs, georgia,
6:11 pm
2000 me has been conducting a war against ukraine since 2014. john, we heard from our correspondent dosa talking about things that have happened more recently. they've called about the so called false flag operation. can you explain the ramifications of this and what this will mean going forward? well, the, the idea is putin was to have an excuse, said his troops to craig, especially for the russian people. so he says, russian special forces and to ukraine, they attack the russian forties and the russian supported forces in occupied ukraine. and then that becomes a pretext for marcell, sending a $100000.00 troops to prove thus the basic idea. okay, we appreciate your insights there. john herbs, the former us ambassador to ukraine, and now senior director of the atlantic cancels eurasia center like you moving on, novak joke of it. she is back in detention at an immigration hotel after his visa
6:12 pm
was revoked for a 2nd time. the tennis star is expected to appeal the decision at a hearing on sunday. a day before the strolling open begins. joke of inches, visa was 1st cancelled after questions about his vaccine exemption that the decision was overturned. prompting any intervention by the immigration minister. he argued, joke of his presence could be a health risk and encourage anti vaccine sentiment. sarah clark has been following developments from brisbin. now the joke of is, legal team took the visa stuff back to the federal court, and the last minute bid to stop his deportation. on the eve of the astray and open, the tennis champion has been granted a temporary reprieve. as long as this matter is being played out in court, he can stay in australia. the federal government canceled his visa for a 2nd time, arguing the joke of which poses health risk. and his presence here in australia offend anti vaccination sentiment,
6:13 pm
and might encourage others not to comply with public health measures. took of its lawyers cited an online poll as evidence of widespread support for administrative it's 60 percent of a strident wanting him to play in the strolling open. the tennis champion is back in detention critical, including the former labor prime minister, kevin rud argued that scott morrison is using the visa saga as a distraction as a country record, a record number of daily type at 19 infections. joking, which is encore, rival, rafael, a doll has also white in arguing that this ongoing court battle is a distraction to the mind. game stallion open is much more important than, than any player. so if case playing finally. ok. if he's not playing, then open will be greater than open. we saw without him. that's. that's my point of view. this target isn't over yet. the matter is scheduled to return to the federal court for a final hearing on sunday, on the eve of the astray and open another joke which is set for the 1st round of
6:14 pm
the tournament. on monday. in australia, hundreds of anti vaccine demonstrate has gathered in melbourne, demanding jock of bitches relates. they calling on government to allow the tennis to play in the tournament. but they also want mask mandate to and many sterling's play joke of which should follow the rules though, and the entire controversy has drawn mixed response. i just think it's really unfair that people that people get treated differently from everybody else. i was, i provided every day had a really hard time part of it. and it's just like, i don't think it's that out of a decision and i think it just does, it distracts of again about what's going on as well. we don't have access to any rec benson said front of ours to sort of going crazy couple failures. the government wondering whether or not we can play the country as bit of a waste of time. in my opinion, it's a tough ball. i think it's a lose lose really government at this point. i think you know,
6:15 pm
rules are rules and we've all balls and the last couple years here in melbourne. so again, i think raleigh ordination before he arrive would have been better off in his home country said via the decision to revoke a joke. is it she's visa for a 2nd time. has provoked fees, reactions, support savvy surrounding government has politicize the issue and turned it into a witch hunt. the belgrade born player is considered a national hero at home, and the president has given him his full support. if you wanted to band novak jock of a true winning, his 10th australian opened trophy in melbourne, why didn't you deport him immediately? why didn't you tell him that it was impossible for him to get a visa to your country? why do you harassing and not only harass him, but his family and a whole nation? libertarian and proud? is that necessary to in an election? is that necessary to make your citizens like you, president from a small country as a period? who can say that to a great prime minister from a large country. so let's take
6:16 pm
a look back at how we got he earlier this month. a joke of it was denied entry to australia because he didn't meet the cove at 19 requirements. he was sent to an immigration detention hotel in melvin joking, which appealed to that decision, arguing his infection in december. when he was exempt from vaccine requirements, a court then overturned the immigration ministry just decision and ordered his release and organized as of the astronomy and open included him in the tennis championship. bash on friday, immigration minister alex hawk used his discretionary powers to cancel joke, which is these once again on the health grounds. k and bone is an australian immigration lawyer. he says the government invoked executive powers, which is difficult to challenge. and course the grounds that the minister personally cancelled mr jock, which is phaser on friday, were different to the grounds that upon which his face was canceled when he tried to enter the country. last week. the strain of mister ferris gratian is essentially
6:17 pm
conceited. the health risk point and they focused on he's presence in australia potentially stoking anti vaccine sentiment. or if your phasers canceled here in australia, most phase or applications in the future. do carry a criteria for the grants that you will be bod, from re entry to australia. unless compelling raisins exist that affect the interest of a stronger and looked at why he is extremely difficult to obtain. one could argue, obviously given is to drop the 2 status and also he's a patient in the strain open, which is one of the biggest sporting events here in australia that he's present. he would obviously bring certain economic benefits to australia that might rise most compelling interest, but still it's a discretionary grant and it will be very difficult for mr. brockovich to obtain a visa if he's not successful in these, in these proceedings. plenty more head on his knees,
6:18 pm
our including find out why micro shelters along the us. mexico border are turning away. desperate family will tell you which african countries leading the way in renewable energy and is on track to be completely self sufficient. landed and in for astronomy, or is aiming to finish the ashes series against england with another week. ah, more revelations of u. k. government parties during corona virus lockdown cape, emerging, the daily mirror newspapers says drink gatherings took place weekly will, than a dozen such occasions have now come to live. the leader of the opposition labor party says bar, as johnson is not fit for office. and his last trust of the public on wednesday prime minister johnson apologize to parliament for attending what he called a work event at
6:19 pm
a time when his government can find millions of people to their homes under a strict lockdown. bidding baba has been following developments from london. hello, then a dame. how much trouble is the pay? i mean, will it's fair to say he's in a lot of trouble right now. let's just hold remind view is that a visa and reports of parties at downing street which broke cove, it 19 regulations started to surface at the end of last year. and then there have been a whole stream of revelations and of course, on wednesday for his johnson in parliament here admitted that he was at a garden party at 10 downing street in may 2020, attended by dozens of staff which was called a, bring your own booze, gathering now, he says he didn't realize it was a party. most people have laughed at that suggestion. and even since then, there had been more revelations on friday to more leaving parties were reported
6:20 pm
about they happened in spring last year when i was still restrictions on gatherings . and they happened the night before, the funeral of prince philip, the husband of queen elizabeth, and then she was photographed on her own in morning at the funeral service because of the coverage regulations. this has got many more people furious. one of the most government friendly newspapers, the daily express today is, has on its front page. the queen deserves better than miss walk. number 10 has apologized to buckingham palace for that incident, saying it was regrettable that it happened during a time of national morning. but i think the public wants to hear more in terms of an apology, and they're telling conservative members of parliament that very thing. so what's happened is that there has been an effect in the opinion polls putting the opposition labor party are roughly 10 points ahead. a sudden increase they have been leading, but there have, there has been a boost because of these party revelations. some of them, for example,
6:21 pm
those leaving parties, boris johnson said he was not at others like the bring your own booze event. he certainly was now, this is really and feeding into the opposition narrative, that this is a government which has, is now spending too much time trying to defend its own behavior. and not putting enough effort into dealing with the pandemic itself. rather than concentrating on getting through the pandemic and bring into our waiting lists, this self indulgent tory party is having a fight about a leader who they should of know from the start is not fit for office. where we're witnessing every day, the broken spectacle of a prime minister, mind, and deceit and deception, and unable to lead. but whilst the tor is becca and fight each other on what's up, i want to look to the future name. it certainly is
6:22 pm
a frame kicked to the opposition if boris johnson is 4 stars, who might replace him well, there are lots of different contenders, but that is not going to happen very quickly. for the mean time and his cabinet colleagues are standing by him saying, let's wait for this investigation by a senior civil servant who's looking into it's believed around 13 different incidents at downing street or other government premises. so that's their message. let's wait for her. others are saying no, he's clearly misled parliament because in the past he said there were no parties, and now he says he was at one of them. so there was a handful of m. m. p, 's, tory m, p. 's who said he needs to go now, others are listening to their constituents and they're back in their constituencies this weekend. and many of them are reporting severe anger. but it will take around 50 for conservative m p 's to launch a leadership contest. we're not there yet for his johnson,
6:23 pm
he's fighting back with something that it's reported he himself has come up with co operation. save big dog, big dog being himself astounding stuff. but it's suggested that he wants to scrap the young covered restrictions on his plan. b, possibly sack some top officials say to the public, look, this is what i'm doing here or the sweetness. now, will you just stick by me for a while? some political pundits are saying the party will at least stay with him until the may local elections to see the fall out from all of this. others are saying it's time to just start again. public trust has really plummeted. so the time table is hard to say, but it's clear that there is a lot of resentment in the public right now. a certainly is, and that is a financing and name. thank big guy. yeah, i appreciate your update. thank you very much. nadine barbara live for us in that london to ron's now where a protest is a rallying against a government plan to introduce a code of 19 vaccine paths. the french senate passed

others worry low income families could be hit the hardest, particularly during the pandemic. for more on this story, let's bring in at sophie calia. she is a research director at the center on poverty and social policy at columbia university. she joins us from new york. so if you, thanks for being on this and use our this really does sound like a lifeline for many families. talk us through what impact these money, which is a few $100.00 as we mentioned, will have now no longer being or the fact that there won't be this money for families. what impact is that going to have on them? a question. so families across the united states were receiving a national investment, basically in their children, in every month of the 2nd half of 2021. that was because the child tax, but it was expanded to reach nearly all children for the 1st time. and we are, our center is found that it, me and the 3800000 children out of poverty in november accent. this credit all that anti poverty reduction basically goes away. we've also seen the credit
6:43 pm
have large impacts on other forms of economic hardship, like food and sufficiency. so there were fewer children across the country who didn't have enough food in their house as a direct result of the policy. so the slashing child poverty rates by about 30 percent is what i read. but then as we, as we heard earlier, some critics have said that it was too broad and that the benefits were being paid to high income households as well as always that needed it. was that the k. so that's actually historically been how the child tax credit just been structured before 2021 middle and high income families were all eligible for the most were eligible for the child tax credit. whoa income families working families and working for families. we're ineligible. overall one in 3 children across the country were ineligible for the child tax credit before 2021 because their families are going up to all bye. and what about this notion that it will just wade people
6:44 pm
from working? so we have 6 months of evidence study and the new policy didn't discourage anyone marking and all the evidence saying that that's not what we're seeing. the benefits go beyond just household from what i was reading that the extension of this credit would not only help families, but it's also helping both consumers spending to the june of $27000000000.00 a year. so, why hasn't the senate seen all these positives and re introduce this policy? there is why to court and the senate in that she's the few senators who are getting in the way of this policy going into effect. it's a large part of the build back better package of legislation that is currently being negotiated by has voices as support and commitment to the extension of this program. we appreciate your insights. thank you very much. sophie calia there were

a hearing on sunday is due to start his title defense in melbourne the following day. well, i tell you one thing it's, it's very clear that no, like joe garbage is a, is a, is one of the best players of the history without a doubt but days no one playing he studied. that's it. that's, that's more important than, than an event. now because the players are the stays on, then goes and the knob layers are coming. not so no one knew. and roger novak myself, a b on boy who was amazing, got his time. santa dennis, i keep going, and i was to albany so much more important than, than, than any player. so why if his playing finally. okay. if he is not playing, i have taught there not been will be a great, that's another open with or without him. that's, that's my point of view about his image. i mean, every one chose he is,

6:57 pm
else is not valid. well, any country can deny your answers. so i know that yesterday, prime minister, let's say said no, i didn't really read anywhere. why? so that's what interest me to know the reason because he had a visa. right. so i don't think he would have traveled here just by luck without him thinking me that he would be able to play in with him having to write authorization to be in the country. so if you would have the visa, you would think that you would be playing. i think novak is a very big name and is a global superstar. and i think and that he is someone that maybe, you know, people think that they can make a big deal out of a just because it's no book. okay, and that is all your support for now. back to emily. thank you very much for the message to me. emily angland for this news hour. but don't go anywhere. i'll be
