7:00 am
[000:00:00;00] ah, knowledge is here with you. oh, i with military hardware intentions. mounting britain accuses russia plotting turn solar compliant leader, ukraine. ah, hello, i'm dr. jordan. this is al jazeera la you from de, also coming up, rescue workers in yemen, continued searching for survivors from an air strike that killed more than 80 people at a detention center. the on the chronic, delta veterans leap, china struggling to maintain it 0 cobit strategy less than 2 weeks out in the
7:01 am
winter olympics. and the swedish politicians capitalizing on the rising gang bottoms ahead of elections. ah, russia says accusations that it's plotting to install a pro moscow leader in ukraine. our nonsense, the allegation has come from britain, which also says russia is in contact with former ukrainian politicians as part of plans for an invasion. the u. k. foreign ministry hasn't provided evidence of its claims, which were level in a statement by the foreign secretary is trust. but she said the information of being released to bay shines a light on the extent of russian activity designed to subvert ukraine and is an insight into kremlin thinking. russia must deescalate, and it's campaigns of aggression and disinformation and pursue a path of diplomacy. as the u. k and our partners have said repeatedly, any russian military incursion into ukraine would be
7:02 am
a massive strategic mistake with severe costs. well, the us national security council says this kind of plotting is deeply concerning and that washington stands with its democratically elected partners in ukraine. well, david garage is a professor at the national defense university. he served as nato operations director in the office of the us, secretary of defense. you join us 1st guy from bethesda in maryland. david. good to have you with us. so how significant then is this not position by the british, that moscow planning to install the pro criminal puppet government in ukraine? why london saying this, now? do you think that's a good question. well, tensions are high and i think they probably, you know, this, this is extraordinary. presumably they got this from either a signal intelligence or from a very highly placed source, both of whom could potentially be compromised by the so i think it's so shows just how seriously the u. k. takes this problem,
7:03 am
that they're willing to go public with it. right now, you know, i think it's a reaction to the russian bill, but yeah, that's an important point you make because we've seen a number of these western preemptive accusations at the most recent. but russia was about to create a full flag incident as a pretext or invasion, all these robust intelligence assessments. so this is all part of the propaganda war. do you think? well, we don't do propaganda. well, western democracies don't do it well because, you know, eventually everything comes out within 6 months. if we're being less than fully honest, it comes out very quickly. and that discredits us from the next time. you know, people are still talking about the origins of the iraq or which was a generation ago. so i think that it has to be something real. to be honest. i think that the leaders here know that they don't get us. they don't get to do over if they put out something false. yeah. and the russians and hit back david saying look, it's a load of nonsense but,
7:04 am
but should be believed the russians. let's not forget they forced, they fought for the amex, crimea back in 2014. so what is putin game here? a good question. so you're exactly right now there's, there's 2 things i think was really motivating. is the fact that, you know, there was a color revolution that overthrew a pro russian desperate in ukraine and the precedent that could happen in moscow. there's going to be a long winter, you know, with the north st pipeline, not on line with economic damage due to co bid. 40 percent of russians don't have any savings. russian inflation is running possibly as high as 18 percent. and so, you know, meanwhile he's worried, he's worried about being overthrown. and, you know, one thing the russians can do is when they think of the survival, their nations at stake, they will put up with suffering. so you can put the nation award time putting, then the economy becomes a secondary issue,
7:05 am
and then meanwhile he can do what he always said he wanted to do. and we, we, quite frankly, didn't believe them, which is basically reestablish the security sphere. okay. soviet, the just just a final point to you. i mean, we've seen the flurry of diplomatic activity to deescalate the crisis. many countries that were still sending military support to ukraine. you think putin has painted himself into a corner by making demands. he knows the west will concede to and not just a final vote. do you think war can be averted? i hope, or can't be averted. i think it's more likely now than it was a week ago or will be averted. i think that is in a position where the west is looking for something he give him to back down unfortunately, rather than moderating his requests. like, you know, just the other day he said, oh, there can't be for forces in romania, bulgaria. what, you know, i mean bulgaria doesn't have
7:06 am
a border with russia. you know, they're both nato countries. so it's hard to see what's going on. but i think the most likely thing is perhaps the, the revitalization of the conventional forces in europe, treaty. and that might be as a saving gesture. all right, david arrival really, really good to get your thoughts. david, thank you for talking to sarah. thank you. oh, it's an honor. thank you. now the u. s. and ukraine about 90 tons of military supplies. the ukraine sang at once to ensure its armed forces, a well stocked. russia insisted has no plans to attack where we challenge reports, rushes, defense ministry isn't saying where these planes are taking off from. but it is saying where they're going. that route. the official reason they're headed there is exercises, but the deployments add to rushes heightens military posture on ukraine's borders and west and fears of an invasion. russia is spending every signal that it's intense on a serious military offensive that would market 2nd invasion of ukraine in the past
7:07 am
8 years. but i don't think that's president putin's preferred outcome because a full scale invasion is costly. it's risky because there will be a lot of russian casualties as well. the ukranian military is much better equipped than in 20. 14 western powers are stepping up military assistance to ukraine. the 1st plane load of $200000000.00 worth of us defense, a derived in kiev on saturday, 90 tons of materials including ammunition, the u. k. latvia, lithuania and estonia are all providing ukraine with defensive weaponry. canada has reportedly sent special forces, denmark, turkey, the czech republic are also providing assistance. but despite the height intentions, the mood in ukraine is mostly com. a demonstration in kiev on the countries unification day. a couple of 100 people formed a human chain as a shower solidarity. despite all the propaganda, despite the russian misleading information, despite old food and pressure,
7:08 am
ukraine is united, but give them a holler sort of delayed. in the past, they already tried to divide ukraine. we made our conclusions, we weren't split up. russia once written guarantees that ukraine wont join nato and for the alliance to withdraw from eastern europe. the criminal denies is planning and incursion into ukraine. but in 2014, it did just that annex in crimea in the process where we talents, how does era rescue workers in yemen are still searching for survivors trapped under the daybreak. they destroyed detention facility who the officials say a saudi led coalition airstrike hit the temporary holding center inside our province on friday. saudi arabia says the building was not on a list of protected sites. catching up as had a young report. the agony isn't over for these families. their loved ones for kills in an air strike on a detention facility in yemen, sato province. now they must sort through bodies to try and identify their debt
7:09 am
relatives. nearby rescue teams are hoping to find survivors under the rubble. yet in the lobby like this is a crime to be added to their crimes. and this makes us more determined to face the aggression we're calling for all the relevant authorities to investigate this. more than 80 people were killed and the attack dozens are injured or missing. tollen, i guess in your homework either i'm but i was sitting with my friends and then the wall plane came and dropped the 1st strike on our wall a while later, 2 more years strikes her migraines, women and children are among the dead agencies say the who these use the facility to hold migrants who tried reaching gulf nations to find jobs in a statement read on air by saudi state tv. the coalition says the rebels fail to market the detention center on a no strike list was at the heart of the damage that i got to believe amanda. the alleged target was not included in the non targeting list,
7:10 am
according to the mechanism approved with the office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs in yemen dozen and was not reported by the international committee of the red cross that the un is calling for a transparent investigation. but on the ground in him and who the leaders say they're not to blame for the escalating violence. now i'm, i'm getting microbiology, then we are looking at a very big crime. and there is a green light from the americans to kill civilians that that's what we see that by the targeting of detention center inside the province. yeah. and the continuous killing of civilians while war criminals escape prosecution. 6 fighting has intensified recently, not on the saudi led coalition has launched airstrikes on what it says or what the military targets this, after the group carried out an unprecedented attack on the united arab emirates. last week. more violence is becoming a growing threat across the region that has the potential to skill over whatever
