2:02 am
but i think will pay a serious and dear price for it. and he doesn't think now. cost $1.00 is going to cost. and i think you regret having done ok, so let's take a closer look at how russia has been increasing its presence in the region. russia has amassed and estimated $100000.00 troops around the north and east of ukraine. it includes areas that put moscow in easy, striking distance of the capital kiev. for the past 8 years, ukraine has been battling some 35000 russian back rebels who controlled 2 of its eastern provinces. russia reportedly has military personnel station there, though the kremlin denies this. moscow has also deployed in crimea, which was annexed from ukraine in 2014. and there are fees another battlefront could open up on the border without a ruse where russia is moving. troops for war games next month. white house correspondent, kimberly how kit is covering these development for us. hello,
2:03 am
they kimberly bided has been addressing the media in a lengthy press conference. and he certainly wasn't missing words when it comes to russia. that's right. the u. s. president made his most definitive statement yet with regard to whether he believes, if vladimir putin, the u. s. president will invade ukraine, something that u. s. intelligence has been indicating for some time, not only because the of russian troops have been amassed along the border of ukraine, read by the 10s of thousands. but also that we see the up tick since november a on social media that seems to indicate that as well. but now the u. s. president saying that he believes that in fact, bladder of hootin and has a perhaps made the decision to is somewhat imminently make that invasion and that it would be
2:04 am
a regrettable decision. and the u. s. president also saying that if vladimir putin does do this, that there would be harsh financial sanctions. something that the international community has warned and cautioned against repeatedly and that it would be punishing and have lasting effects in the short term, mid term as well as long term. kimberly, what are the next move from washington likely to be in relation to russia? well we know that the. c secretary of state to antony blinkin has been in the region. he is talking not only to the president of ukraine, but he is also traveling to berlin. but all eyes really are watching for what will happen on friday when he meets with his counterpart. and that is a meeting that will take place in geneva. and of course, that will be with the russian foreign minister, where once again,
2:05 am
we know that there are going to be strong words that will be cautioning against the military or invasion if you will, into ukraine. what we know is that this is something that the united states is strongly cautioning against the u. s. president saying from the east room just now, but it is a choice for russia to make that they should in the eyes of the united states choose diplomacy. but if they do not, the united states in the west is prepared to respond in the harshest of consequences. should russia choose that path? certainly a dynamic situation. thank you very much for that update. what has correspondent, kimberly, how could live for us? and as we just heard from, kimberly the u. s. secretary of state has spain in kiev, reaffirming washington's commitment to ukraine. honda abdullah hum. it has the latest stat of kiff. hello. nice. the message is the same,
2:06 am
but this time is from the ukrainian capital. give that us secretary of state anthony, blinking renewed, called for russia to choose diplomacy, or pay a price in case of military escalation today. there are some 100000 russian soldiers near ukraine borders. and in that sense, the threat to ukraine is unprecedented. so the president asked me to underscore once again, our commitment to ukraine start or integrity to sovereignty, to its independence. they can arrange visit comes as washington confirms another $200000000.00 in military, a clear show of support for what us called ukraine's fundamental right to sovereignty. that's a good moscow. it says that's a threat to its own security ukraine in the u. s. hoping this military support may change president vladimir putin calculations, even though more russian troops are on the move. this time towards ukraine's
2:07 am
northern border. russia says is ahead of plan military exercises with bella rues, and the us shouldn't be concerned. declaring political support from the side of united states and to provide income such military year, military supplies can deter ross on aggression of course rational. we owe imprecise, that are providing good, the military weapons, a red line for them. but it is the only way to refrain to defend itself, no tensions between nature and moscow over ukraine have been going for months. prudent is demanding that the americans pledge never to let you crave jo nato or expand the military alliance eastwards at the man. the u. s refuses to accept western countries have accused the kremlin of preparing a pretext for an assault on ukraine. and d, as went further saying it has intelligence that russia could carry out
2:08 am
a covert operation inside ukraine to create instability. but if hopes for more negotiations seemed to have rejected and last week, now there seems to be again, room for a diplomatic solution to this crisis. despite the rhetoric and accusations myself, i find it unlikely that russia would attack ukraine in this manner. but people expect to have huge land force that will inevitably result in many casualties. i do not think that russian society and russian political system could take that psychological blow easily sill ukraine would like to see decisive action against russia sooner rather than later. starting with imposing new harsh sanctions that would weaken rush as economy from here, anthony lincoln had to berlin, where he will discuss with some of his european counterparts. the way forward in

roll out, being scaled back by us, telecom companies, 18. seen the rise and there are fees 5 g signals could interfere with some instrument that measure plains altitude, which are crucial during bad weather. i wish chris chris nash swami is a professor of electrical engineering. he says there are solutions to those problems. these c band frequencies, as they're called that the 5 g is deploying, potentially interfere with these radar ultimate or but there are, you know, solutions to the problem. so the buffer space that was discussed earlier is one solution where carriers turn down the power that they transmit in a certain radius around airports, and that will help to reduce the interference. also, studies have been performed the show that certain classes of ultimate or that are more sensitive aren't actually jammed by the ban fees. and so just in the last
2:28 am
couple of weeks alone from early january to today, the f a was actually able to clear roughly 50 percent of aircraft that use the newer ultimate ers. and you know, they're clear for or use or, or buy their landing. and so, you know, upgrading older ultimate ers to newer solutions that don't suffer from the center grants problem represents the other forward. so c bandwidth was allocated does overlap with the reader on to me and our band, which is from $4.00 to $4.00 gigahertz in order to mitigate the risks. the fcc and carriers have actually decided to use the lower portion of the band that doesn't perfectly relapse with the radar ultimate or frequencies. that being said, if you have powerful transition and transmission that are in a frequency that's very close to where the ultimate or works, that can be a problem also. that can jam the ultimate or as well. scientists have discovered a rare coral rafe off the coast of ty, haiti,

2:30 am
to return to the field of ro, ship corals and we will go to another area. it's reassuring to us that the field is very large and that we can dive a different locations and still find the cultural. and before we go, make sure you check out our website, which is al jazeera dot com to get all the latest news and full. i hello, are you watching algae 0? let's take a look at our top stories. this album, the us president predicts russia will invade ukraine. he's want his counterpart, let me persian. they will be costly, sanctions and heavy human losses for his actions. however, joe bob went on to say, he believes the russian leader is not cain for a full blown war. 2, i think he'll just west chest the united states and they don't.
