any movement of russian troops into ukraine will be considered an invasion by stock diplomat has been in germany shoring up support from european allies who have pledged a swift and severe response to any russian aggression new satellite images show. moscow is increasing its troops build up near the ukrainian border and its announced a raft of naval drills across the globe. but the kremlin denies that it's preparing for an attack and is accused the west of staging, a cover for its own provocations. dominic came reports from berlin, ukrainian soldiers practice. 3rd drills near crimea, almost 8 years ago. the peninsula was annexed by russia. now, many here and across europe, fear another act of aggression. and the u. s. president says he thinks it will happen on thursday in berlin. joe biden, secretary of state, spelt out what the west's reaction would be. we had been very clear throughout our,
12:03 am
if any russian military forces move across the ukrainian border and are commit new acts of aggression against ukraine on that will be met with a swift, severe united response from united states and our eyes and partners. and yet pictures like these from roster show russia increasing not decreasing its military readiness. some media reports suggest horses like these and many others on now poised that several strategic locations around the borders with ukraine. in moscow, the view is very different. the sharina zappa lay equal grains at the moment. the western and ukrainian media, as well as officials, had become even more active in replicating speculation about the imminent russian invasion of ukraine as they put it. we are convinced that the goal of this campaign is to create an information cover for stating landscape publications of their own, including those a military character which may have extremely tragic consequences for regional and

global security. oriental products, while in kiev president volley, mia zalinski says his country's aim is to prevent war with its neighbour, horrible, marcia global edition. we do our best to find a diplomatic solution. we do our best for peace in ukraine. yeah. what should you do? only one thing don't do. hannah could keep your head cool. be self confident, be confident in our army, and our ukraine level berlin's was, will ye seal here in the german capital ministers are clear. they say they want the russians to de escalate the situation. even a tiny step backwards would be a welcome step, but that any active aggression would have dire economic consequences for russia. even if that would also cost germany dearly dominate cane al jazeera, berlin, or present and biden has warned russia it will pay a heavy price if it invades ukraine. after earlier,
12:05 am
suggesting allies would be laid over how to react to what he called a minor incursion. i've been absolutely clear with president is no misunderstanding if any, any assemble rushing units, new crossing cream where that is an invasion. but then we met with severe and coordinated economic response that i've discussed in detail with our allies as well as laid out very clearly for president food. but there is no doubt but to be no down at all. that makes this choice. russian k, a heavy price. well my can i joined the slide now from washington d. c. my goal of this really a bit of a clean up operation for the president of the comments that he made on wednesday. very much a clean up operation. the president, 10 members of his administration are going out of their way to indicate that the president, while not directly misspeaking, perhaps,
12:06 am
did not mean what he actually said, that there's some kind of division on a nature authentication by russia. and certainly that is something that to us is european allies off very strongly denying, as well. in the course of the day, the administration and the various members of the biden administration, absolutely insistent that there has been no change in us policy. that any incursion into crimea will be met into ukraine. will be met with a strong reaction from the us along with its european allies, european allies, who the administration continues to say on exactly the same page as the u. s. now, entity blink and the secretary of state is in europe at present. he's been holding talks with various foreign ministers, and importantly, he'll be traveling for talks of the russian foreign minister in the course of friday. and it's expected that he's going to be pointing out as well that president
12:07 am
biden has not signaling any change in us policy. that the u. s. policy is exactly the same as that of its european allies, and that it will meet any attempt to invade ukraine with the strongest come to measure as possible. so that is something that the sexual state is going to be making clear to the russian foreign minister as attempts by the, by the ministration to clean up exactly what its position is. continue by hannah with the latest from washington d. c. mike, for the moment. thank you. so what has russia made of all of this will dr. jabari is in moscow for, for us with more on the kremlin response. russia's foreign ministry is very clear about what they're hoping to achieve from the meeting on friday in geneva. that is, they want to take the next steps on negotiations on security guarantees that they're asking the american government about the possibility of nato expanding further eastward, as well as not allowing ukraine to join the military alliance. that is something
12:08 am
that is very much red line for this country. so that's the official position here. but what the ordinary russian think about the ongoing tensions we asked them, people here in the capital and here's what they had to say. you don't wish to women you, but i think there will be no war. it seems to me that we have this situation from time to time because authorities need to keep people up with something apart from coded, not put. his rating is just going down near where i don't believe it's possible that property nations will ever start this war. i wouldn't one t because why, what for to prove war and to whom are stand for peace. whenever, when you tell us that your nose nectar, why is the tool needed? i wish we don't make war, especially with ukraine. we are brothers. indeed, that's all i can tell you as the world waits to find out what happens in geneva on friday. many here are hoping that diplomacy and dialogue can continue to be the path forward to try and the escalate, the looming crisis and how to bill her,
12:09 am
me that is in the ukrainian capital key of war. she says the atmosphere seems relatively calm. ah, your premiums have been closely monitoring the flurry of diplomatic efforts over the past few weeks as this crisis has been deepening. after all, this is a conflict that has cost this country more than 14000 lives and add to that more than 1400000 people who are internally displaced. but beyond that, you don't get the feeling that people are worried about an imminent russian invasion, despite all the rhetoric may here, but from their own leadership, or indeed european and american apollo tissues. now, people will tell you that this is actually not the right time for russia to cross the border. they said that the situation is different than back in 2014. they said that the army, the ukrainian army now is much more capable,
12:10 am
is much better equipped. it has received a training so they feel that they are much more confident now. and that russia knows exactly that or from tensions with russia and china to the taliban takeover in afghanistan. u. s. president joe biden has faced many foreign policy challenges during his 1st year in office. i'll just say diplomatic editor james bays takes a look at his track record. joseph robin bye junior, do software one year ago, moment softer. he was sworn in the new president pledge there be a return to a more traditional u. s. foreign policy. we will repair our licenses and engage with the rural once again. not to be yesterday's challenges. but today's under mars challenges. later, the same day president biden signed back up to the paris climate deal of the un. the u. s. has returned to the human rights counseling geneva,
12:11 am
it's rejoined the education in scientific organization, unesco. and again, it's playing its part to funds schools, clinics, and other services for palestinians through unrra. but other parts of u. s. foreign policy have proved much more problematic biden promise to rejoin the ran nuclear deal. but even close allies believe he wasted precious time getting us back to talks, which didn't start in vienna until april. but it was the momentous events in august in afghanistan, that of course, the most tension between the u. s. and it's nato and e u allies. they feel that we're not properly consulted about the u. s. plans withdraw forces after doing a deal with the taliban. and they believe that withdrawal was seriously bungled relations with others, superpowers have not improved in biden's 1st year. an attempt to bridge differences with china, a meeting in alaska, attended by the us national security adviser,
12:12 am
the secretary of state. and the 2 chinese counterparts descended into a very public confrontation. and there's been no breakthrough in talks with russia to try and diffuse tensions of the ukraine. the administration's most experienced negotiate of wendy sherman, led those discussions in geneva last week with another round with the us secretary of state and russian foreign minister expected on friday. u. s. allies acknowledge a distinct change from the trump presidency. the biden administration is trying to communicate and cooperate more, but they say the response to major events has been slow and stilted. sometimes that had been missteps. one western politician told me we were hoping for return to the obama error. instead, we seem to have got the obama b team, james bays al jazeera at the united nations. or for more on this, let's speak to brian class and associate professor of global politics that university college london who joins us now live over skype. so thank you so much
12:13 am
for joining us here on al jazeera, pretty strong words, i guess at the end of our report, there are people accusing by the end of being the sort of obama b team. what have you made of his 1st year when it comes to foreign policy as he managed to turn back the clock after trump? well, i think the most important thing he's done on the global stage is to show that the united states still cares about international engagement and still supports multilateral institutions to try to solve problems. the, the united states suffered dramatically under the trump administration because of the attacks on allies, the disengagement, and the sort of america 1st mentality the trump brought. but also because of the chaos and dysfunction i'm in january 6, for example, did huge damage to america's reputation abroad. so by him and has been trying to pick up the pieces. now, of course, there's going to be missteps along the way, and biden hasn't fixed everything, but that signal has been crucially important. i am worried, however, that allies will look at the united states going forward,
12:14 am
and i think this is already happening as an unreliable partner because of the trump years. in other words, because it was possible for the u. s. to veer towards more isolationist trump like policies in the past. they've started to realize this is possible, again in the future, and they're starting to hedge their bets more. so the world is changing, and biden can't shape events quite as much as past you as president and say that 1009. these might have been able to do and i will focus maybe come back to that. and in the final part of the interview house in domestic politics have, have shaped his foreign policy as well. but looking at the things that have been achieved or not achieved, as, as one might say, afghanistan of course, stands out. yes, the timeline had been put in place at for uh, by the trump administration, but the way that the u. s. and the nato pulled out of the country has been considered incredibly damaging, especially to that, to the people there. how much of that is his fault directly? i think that's
12:15 am
a great way of framing the question because of course everything went wrong and afghan us down. the question is, could have gone differently with a better managed response, and i don't know the answer. that question is very difficult because any sort of withdrawal from afghanistan was going to almost certainly descend into a level of chaos and taliban control that was going to be unpopular and western capitals. so i think that could have been better coordination that probably could have been better for side of how quickly f canister would collapse. but whether there would be some good outcome. i think that's highly unlikely. i think there was no way in which the u. s. president could manage a situation in which american and western goals were suddenly magically achieved enough canister. and i think this is one of the themes of the bite and presidency so far, and he's getting knocked about a lot of different crises, whether it's corona, virus, inflation, afghanistan, and some of them, he could have potentially managed a bit better. but many of them are ineligibility that are making him more unpopular even though he didn't have a lot of sway over them. and we were talking about domestic issues before. of course, you just mentioned the corona virus, which has been
12:16 am
a huge crisis everywhere. and i suppose what's left over of the trump administration, that knowledge that the united states is a few tens of thousands of votes in any swing state away from having a trump again, or perhaps someone like, like him. do you think that because of that foreign policy simply hasn't been a priority for joe biden over the 1st year? why don't think it's mostly been out of the priority spectrum for the white house? it's more than voters are not focused on it. i mean, again, a stand was burning red hot in u. s. headlines for about a week. i mean it's largely disappeared from us coverage. and so, you know, you get these retrospective the year on and so on where people think about it again . but for the average person, they're highly affected by covey. they're affected by inflation. they're infected by effected by lots of economic aspects. and that has dominated biden's presidency so far. and i think sort of 2 dynamics are at play here. one is that some of these issues that are worldwide like inflation, like the con variant,
12:17 am
are being pinned on joe biden, in a way that i think is reasonably unfair. and secondly, the country is deeply, deeply polarized, when you look at the poles and you see that biden is unpopular, and you see that the only president who was more unpopular at this stage was donald trump. that is the new normal of american politics by being a democrat or republican in the white house in 2022, you're going to alienate a significant chunk of the population because the country is so incredibly divide it. so i think biden is, is swimming against some very strong current. i don't know whether he's going to turn things around in terms of popularity. but i think it's fair to look at what he's actually responsible for. and there are some missteps with testing and mask availability in the united states that are certainly part of the white house is responsibility. but vaccine availability has been massively widespread during the by an administration. and many of the republicans have been the ones who have been talking against vaccination. so when you ask why the pandemic isn't going the right
12:18 am
way in the us, you know, blaming bite. and someone who's been of providing free a safe vaccines to the public in a widespread way and his political opponents, denigrating them. is it fair to blame him for 4 transmission rates? and so i think that's one of the issues that he's grappling with were some of the criticisms fair? some of it is unfair, i guess because of the many difficulties the u. s. is going through right now, many of its historic allies, for example, in the european union. don't really trust in the us any more. but do you think that that's something that any one president can change or do you think that maybe that's just the reality of the world right now that there is no one country that's going to be the leader of the free world, like the u. s. has been since world war 2. yes. so i think there's 2 things happening there. one is you're right that there has been a balance of power shift for the u. s. is no longer as dominant as it was saying the 1990. when the soviet union collapsed in there was no real rival. but on top of that, you also have this thing that the world has woken up to the fact that multilateral
12:19 am
engagement on global issues is no longer given. in other words, even though the u. s. built the world order, they're not necessarily going to be invested in it going forward because during the trump years they weren't. and the 2nd that you do that one time just once, it raises the possibility that this could happen again. and so i think, no matter what joe biden or successors do european allies, the traditional allies of united states are going to wonder, could this happen again? and if they, if they think it might, they're going to try to create a hedging strategy where they have not all their eggs in the american basket. and i think that's what's happening were power ships are happening on the global stage because of the worries of a return of trump to the united states. right. in class, associate professor of global politics at university college london. sir, a real pleasure speaking to you. thank you. thank you. is much more ahead on the al jazeera news hour, including a former pope benedict, the 16th in the sexual abuse spotlight. claims that he failed to act against the
