6:05 am
1st 2 weeks of this year alone. while the saudi, that coalition has cause most of the devastation booth, ease of use child soldiers and lay landmines across the country. but he evans, who he health minister, has appealed to the international community for medical aid, and he accused the saddler coalition of deliberately targeting civilians, national. and i'm judy and i can get it done. they're looking at a very big crime and there's a green light from the americans to kill civilians. you know, that's what we see. what the targeting of the attention center inside the province and the continuous killing of civilians, war criminals, escape prosecution. and consider this a war crime against humanity, but the world should take responsibility at this critical moment in human history. we are witnessing many victims. while jamal benomar is a former us special envoy for yemen, he says, the strikes all the latest in a series of war crimes committed by the saudi led coalition. it is a sign of desperation. you know, from the, the saudi coalition side, you know, when they enter this, when they decided to launch this war and yemen, you know,
6:06 am
they promise to know that they will bring back their proxies or the clients to power, you know, within 3 weeks, 7 years have passed and they have not been able to achieve any of the objectives they failed consistently to bring an end to this war. in fact, that intervention has only complicated an already complicate to situation political situation in, in yemen, there has been no, no accountability whatsoever since the start of this war. it's a failure from the not only do and the state side, but the permanent members of the school to counsel the realities that all the 5 members instead of cooperating to try and find a way how to compel the saudis to and the war in yemen. and compelled the m and the sides, you know, to enter in good faith in a political process. you know,
6:07 am
to end this strife. um, they in fact have been competing for lucrative contracts with sarabia and e. so the highest body in the world and united nations. this us go to council, you know, the members have not been, i have not played, i'm afraid of positive role in the last few years. the us and russia. hell what they say, frank talk as they try to resolve their stand off of the ukraine. moscow insist nato should not let ukraine join the alliance. but that's been rejected by washington. it's european allies and nato. natasha butler has more now from geneva . at a hotel in geneva, the u. s. secretary of state and russian foreign minister arrived for crucial talks . ain't it diffusing tensions over ukraine? antony blinkin and sir gala for offset the tone early. both said to break through was unlikely. we don't expect to resolve your late work. i do as far
6:08 am
as whether we are over middleton is doing very well, because we are not expecting a breakthrough at this meeting either. we are expecting answers to our proposals after the meeting law for offset moscow wanted a written response from the u. s. to its demands, including a guarantee that nato will not grant membership to ukraine. something blinkin has repeatedly called a nonstarter. but he said the u. s. would respond to russia if moscow addressed it's concerns and respected ukrainian sovereignty. we've been clear if any russian military forces move across ukraine's order that's renewed invasion. it will be met with swift, severe, and a united response from the united states and are partisan allies. u. s. intelligence says russia has already amassed at least a 100000 troops on its western border and is moving weapons into allied belarus,
6:09 am
north of ukraine. the u. s. and russian positions are clearly far apart to blink and allow for making very little real progress. but the 2 men did agree to continue to pursue diplomacy, as waived, the escalating a crisis which could lead to war. it was on the shores of lake geneva, the talks between the u. s. and russia led to the end of the cold war, decades on how old rivalries have resurfaced, both sides accused each other regression and relations of dangerously deteriorated . the outlook for the coming weeks is turbulent. natasha butler, al jazeera geneva, or despite the differences, the u. s. and russia say they're open to further dialogues, dosage bar reports from oscar. the russian foreign minister said that there is currently a lot of hysteria that russia is not interested in invading ukraine. and all this
6:10 am
talk is a false narrative that's been created by the western powers to give them an excuse to put more nato troops alongside the border, a with russia. and that is something this country cannot accept. he said they will wait to find out a written proposal in a written answer by the u. s. government next week, where the u. s. stands on what the russians are asking for, and they will decide how to proceed from that point forward. he said that it is not an out of the question to continue the dialogue and it was not worthy to hear the u . s. secretary of state saying these are not negotiations there. just discussions. and i think it's important to highlight that because each side, they are very much entrenched in their demands and that is not likely to change. but what is now clear is that dialogue and diplomacy is not dead. both sides are eager to continue dialogue about the differences they have when it comes to the
6:11 am
looming crisis and not just ukraine, but also nato, and its role in this part of the world. and the russian foreign minister said that they will study carefully, they're written answer from the u. s. and then decide how to proceed for their part . this is what they want to hear, that they will get a written response and they know it got a time frame for that from the u. s. government of next week, and they will decide how to proceed from that point on. well, for many ukrainians, the build up of russian troops of the border has echoes of 2014, when war came to the east of that country or the other, hamid is in care of for some bracing fool bob's. i know many of the she's come to pay her respects not to forget friends lost since the war broke out in the east of the country in 2014 in millsboro got sca was a volunteer back then providing support to the soldiers on the front line the idea of possible renewed fighting worries her me of course,
6:12 am
i think her the words going on and on from 2014. ah, i don't know where we have a big world, but we held guns and we already talk of war and a possible russian invasion concerns many ukrainians. but people here feel things could be different this time around many a grateful of the support. some western countries have provided ukraine some publicly thank in the u. k for its recent delivery of mid ridge weapons. but elsewhere around here, people are going about their daily lives wondering if war is as imminent as their leaders have been warning. there's also a sense among people here that the situation is made more complicated because of the competition between russia and the west,
6:13 am
over influence in this part of the world, ukraine being at the center of it. dmitri sokolov and his wife allan. i left crimea soon after russia next to peninsula in 2014. like many, he thinks that ukraine has come a long way since we are different in mentality the road different. we are very much different now from, from russia. and we are very much different from ukrainians. that war, you know, 2014, more than 50 percent v vi. we believe that this is just a part of game. like, let's say a kind of trade in, you know, over which are what states we'll provide to rush on the brochure, et cetera. so we hope it, sol, blubbering, i think, but for catch a push, ne and skia. the problems also come from within. she hasn't returned to her home tom of logan's, since pro russian separatist took over me, i thought she summoned up to do that. the problem is not only russia, sometimes i don't feel part of this country. sometimes my friends and colleagues
6:14 am
make the point that we are guilty of provoking this conflict. i really don't understand where i belong. 8 years on ukrainians have learned to live with the threat from their big neighbor. many say is become part of their lives. but what they fear now is that any move by russia order us could bring more divisions among ukrainians. without the hamid elders you are kiff more so to come here and i'll just say are including the poll struggles to contain his biggest wave of corona, virus infections. so far as the panoramic continues to drive 2 modems is on the line. the sundance film festival is going virtual one ah, with thank you for joining in. we had extreme flooding
