britain's prime minister under pressure to resign over dining street parties during lockdown and a palestinian family at the center of an anti expulsion campaign is evicted by israeli lace. and they home demolished. ah, the u. s. president says he believes russia will make a military incursion into ukraine because his counterpart at vladimir putin has to be seen to be doing something. joe biden has promised costly sanctions in the event of a full scale invasion. and heavy human losses for moscow, he went on to say the russian president will come to regret any military action. do i think you'll just west just the united states and they're not as significant? yes, i think you will. but i think will pay
3:02 am
a serious and dear price for it. and he doesn't think now cost when it's going to cost. and i think he'll regret having done. okay, so let's take a closer look at how russia has been increasing its presence in the region. russia has a mast and estimated $100000.00 troops around the north and east of ukraine. it includes areas that put moscow in ac, striking distance of the capital give for the past 8 years. ukraine has been baffling at some 35000 russian back rebels who control to if it's 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, back in 2014. and there are fees, another battlefront called opened up on the border with bell roof, where russia is moving troops for war games. next month. he is our white house correspondent, kimberly held that the u. s. president made his most definitive statement yet with
3:03 am
regard to whether he believes, if vladimir putin, the u. s. president, will invade ukraine. something that us intelligence has been indicating for some time. not only because the russian troops have been amassed along the border of ukraine, read by the 10s of thousands, but also that we seem to have tick since november, i on social media that seems to indicate that as well. but now the u. s. president saying that he believes that in fact, bladder putin and has perhaps made the decision to is somewhat emerged at leave, make that invasion and that it would be 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,
3:04 am
and that it would be punishing and have lasting effects in the short term, mid term, as well as long term. and as we heard the u. s. secretary of state has bain in kia, reaffirming washington's commitment to ukraine, hota abdel hum, it has the latest out of keith. and i suppose the message is the same, but this time is from the ukrainian capital. give that u. s. secretary of state, anthony blink and renewed calls for russia to choose diplomacy, or per year price, in case of military escalation. today, there are some 100000 russian soldiers near ukraine's borders. and in that sense, the threat to your friends is unprecedented. so the president asked me to underscore once again, our commitment to ukraine, search for integrity, to sovereignty towards independence. these clear range visit comes as washington confirms another $200000000.00 in military aid for give
3:05 am
a clear show of support for what do you as called ukraine's fundament, the right to sovereignty. that's a good moscow. it says that's a threat to its own security. ukraine into us, hoping this military support may change president vladimir putin calculations, even though more russian troops on the move this time to was ukraine's northern border. russia says is the head of plan military exercises with bella roost. and the us shouldn't be concert declaring political support from the side of united states and to providing for such military year military supplies can deter ross on aggression, of course rational. we owe in full size that are providing good, the military weapons, a red line for them, but it is the only way to refrain to defend itself. now, dentures between nature and moscow over ukraine have been going for months.
3:06 am
pollutant is demanding that the americans pledge never to let ukraine join 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 a covert operation inside ukraine to create instability. but if hopes for more negotiation seemed to have reach at that end 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 that people expect to have huge landed force that would 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
3:07 am
against russia sooner rather than later. starting with imposing new harsh sanctions . that would, we can rush as economy from here, as the lincoln had to berlin, where he will discuss with some of his european counterparts. the way forward in preparation of another meeting on friday was a russian foreign minister, sergey lovegrove. now as anyone here, and they would tell you that that meeting is the most important of the week. what that means is you are give, okay, for more analysis. let's bring in robert hunter, who's a former us ambassador to nato. he joins us live from washington. they say hello there, robert, thanks for being on the program. this plan for you to unpack here, but basically i want to get your thoughts on this particular comment by the us president. have a listen things. corrosion is we end up having to fight about what to do and not
3:08 am
do, et cetera. but if they actually do what they're capable of doing with the force of mass on the border, it is going to be a disaster for russia. her robert, the 1st thing that strikes me about that comment from joe biden is him spelling out potential differences within the alliance. how do you think nato will react to that? i think that we would be much better off both sides across the united states and russia. would say less in public and do the negotiation in private. mister barton sent himself, he doesn't know what to do, but by conjecturing that it might go in, i think that's going to cause some hardening with the alliance, but it also doesn't do any good. important thing right now. the important thing is both russia and the united states have signals they are going to talk, going to negotiate. they don't want this to get out of hand. and if indeed,
3:09 am
they are able to get all, whether it will be possible, i think, to read something on this, russia as a starting place in europe. we have a desire to have involved in europe, you know, be constructive. it's a matter of doing the terms and conditions, so i just wish people would stop things so much or bother. fair enough. the other element of that sound bite is bite and talking about a so called minor incursion. is he basically giving potent permission for this? my monitor incursion while i wonder what he's talking about it, it could be that russia would augment the troops center quietly and secret already . and there's no called john by region of ukraine. there could be more cyber attacks or could be more effort to undermine democracies. there could be some new stuff with vast weaponry,
3:10 am
but i really am not quite sure what the president has or mind because quite frankly, if russia does go militarily more ukraine, then there is a major, major problem and nobody is going to benefit from it. so do you think that the president has done more harm than good after his comments today? i think h take a harder line. the united states has already said. a president already said that he does not plan to send us military forces. he could always change his mind, but that was very clear. signal lester. something besides adjuster be to drums, thomas of war. the united states is always to artic talked about major sanctions. well, that's all well and good news can reassure the hours or we're serious. a might cause some of feeling it in moscow. i shouldn't do too much, but there are no example hoss nor example of when, if
3:11 am
a country wants to do something for a strong security. as russia claims, i think incorrectly here will be doing countries don't respond to her sanctions. they, they're really a great big bluff. well, we appreciate your time and your analysis there, robert hunter, a former us ambassador to nato. thank you. moving on now and astrology and new zealand. first international aid flights are on route to tell na, ashe from saturdays volcanic eruption has finally been cleared from the airport runway. the pacific island nation has been cut off from the world sincere option. anderson ami destroyed homes and poisoned water supplies for the people of tang. we're hitting their way now with a whole lot of water. the ship can hold currently holds over $250000.00 leaders of water and will be able to provide that once we arrive and then every day thereafter, we're going to be producing another 70000 liters of water that we can then put
3:12 am
ashore. okay, let's bring in wine. hi. who is covering developments out of oakland? new zealand. hello there. wine. what's the latest on this relief if it yes, well i will, of course be very welcome news for those who are on the ground in tongue because they have not been able to receive any outside assistance at all so far because of that ash on the runway and of course, because it's a long journey there in terms of getting ships there from the likes of australia and new zealand. so we know the 2 easy navy ships are on their way there now they are due to arrive possibly some time on friday. there's another ship that is going to leave on friday from australia and a 3rd ship from new zealand as well. but more importantly, in the short term that new zealand c. $130.00 hercules crops has taken off from oakland and is on route to the capital nuclear loafer. now because of that hot work that was done by so many volunteers, we saw images of volunteers on the runway in the capital of tang us sweeping that
3:13 am
ash of the runway, which had prevented many flights landing there. well, that is all clear now, so that hercules is on its way. they are carrying release supplies from new zealand that sent me some good news. why and what more do we know about communications being restored in tongue or as well? yes. well, that's been one of the main problems hasn't had, i mean it took until late on tuesday, remembering that the rupture took place on saturday night local time. it took until late on tuesday for us to get any official word out of the tongue and government that was through an official statement when they describe it. it described it as an unprecedented disaster. and communication has been a real problem. they still haven't managed to get in contact with some of the outlying islands in that chain in tongue. so it's still very difficult that undersea our fiber optic cable, as we know, has been severed in at least one location. the telecommunications company is saying
3:14 am
that it's going to be at least 4 weeks before that can be repaired. in the meantime, there is some good news. they have managed to restore some phone lines via satellite. so they're saying it's around 10 percent of capacity. so certainly not where it needs to be or we pick where people want it to be, but it is something it is going to enable. some of the relatives in countries like new zealand has a very large tongue and community here. many of them coming here to this relief center now to donate goods that will eventually be shipped to tanya. so a lot of relief that they will be able to make contact at some stage soon, hopefully with their relatives in time to try to ensure that they're okay. yes. let's hope so. thank you very much for that update. wine. hi live for us in oakland . still ahead don't al jazeera, we followed the plight of palestinian refugees living in lebanon. as the un launch is an urgent appeal for cash to help them survive. winter and we take you to tahiti
