a destructive point. a bridge collapse is just hours before the u. s. president arrives to talk about aging infrastructure and in sport, the quarter finals of the african cut the nations get under way later on saturday, post nation cameron face gambia. what the indomitable lions aiming for a thick ass con title ah. pursuit diplomacy? but prepare for conflicts, that seems to be the approach the united states is taking over ukraine. president joe biden says that he'll soon be moving a small number of american soldiers to nato members in eastern europe, around 8500 troops on standby for a possible deployment. according to the pentagon, biden's ukrainian counterpart is urging the u. s. and other allies to take a breath president followed him as lensky says,
1:02 pm
they've seen rational build ups before. and the diplomatic talks must continue. and for many people living at east of ukraine, the uncertainty of up will. they won't, they invade? is just a part of daily life al jazeera is pretty co hain, begins are coverage. another sign of how serious the u. s. think the threat rush opposes to ukraine. you, as president announced he's moving us forces to the region. where have you decided how soon you would be moving you extra eastern europe or when movies you us through this or europe in the nato countries, in the near term? not a lot, he's likely talking about the 8500 troops that were put on stand by to deploy most headed to bolster nato's quick reaction force. but he's also said he has no intention sending us troops to ukraine. and a new tone from the pentagon, given the type of forces that are arrayed, the ground maneuver forces, the artillery, the ballistic missiles, the air forces,
1:03 pm
all of it packaged together. if that was unleashed on ukraine, it would be significant, very significant. and it would result in a significant amount of casualties. and you can imagine what that might look like in dense urban areas, along roads and so on and so forth. it would be horrified, it would be terrible again, but the administration wants to send the message. diplomacy can still work. there's no reason that the situation has to devolve into conflict. he can choose to deescalate, he can order his troops away. he can choose dialogue and diplomacy, if not the u. s. as the result will be catastrophic, not just for ukraine, but for russia as well. particle, he al jazeera washington o. in ukraine, the president is urging the us not to escalate tension with russia, followed me as lensky says, the talk of an imminent russian invasion may be exaggerated. don't know, young,
1:04 pm
shy, we do not see a bigger escalation. yes, the truth numbers have gone up, but i was talking about the same thing in 2021. when there were drills in the russian federation, there was a big build up. we were supported by the u. s. europeans called on russia to pull back. i don't think the situation is more intense than that time in early 2021. there was no such coverage of ukraine at that time. people in ukraine near the border with russia have told al 0 that they've been living with a threat of invasion for years. let's go live now to want to serious auto abdul hamid in the ukrainian capital. how to, to what extent is president lensky just saying? what people are thinking that they've been through all of this before but i think there's been quite a change of tone over the past few over the past week. actually not only for president lengthy, but also from other members of the government. for example, the head of the national security council, calling for com,
1:05 pm
saying that an invasion is not imminent. actually, president zalinski yesterday had quite a lengthy press conference with the foreign media. it's at the moment here in care . i'm at the student point. he did say you got to tone it down, you got to stop spreading panic, kind of blaming the foreign media for this atmosphere. he said it's costing the country a lot. he said that $12500000000.00 have already left the countries as it's crisis, begun and of the country really don't go further like that, that the most important reading is economic stability. and now people are living through all of this. you know, when you look here around give life is going on, people might be a little bit concerned, but they're not really changing the patterns of life. and this is about the same thing. we have heard eastern new grade where people live. basically,
1:06 pm
proximity of the front line, this is our report. it's in the villages of eastern ukraine that the impact of the conflict is felt the most. victoria is worried about the long term effect it could have on her children. will house is just under line of contact, hearing gunshots, and loud banks has become part of daily life. a difficult situation for parents, especially when she says this little sign of any help coming loses up. so no house without furniture all this time. the government hasn't provided anything and won't do anything right now. either. nobody has told us anything dark on what will happen and what should we do for most people here shrugged off the idea of an imminent invasion. saying they have been living with the thread for more than 8 years now. a few 100 kilometer south in multiple life goes on. the port city has seen fierce

1:09 pm
t. v and media it is making it into ukraine. indian media. but i think at the request of the, the government, certainly the tone has come down over the past few days. they've been less alarm is more pragmatic about what's going on. actually, president zalinski yesterday was say, you know, i know better what's happening in this country. and then you as president joe biden is simply because i am a ukranian. i think that's the tone that is actually being reflected in the local media here. yes, they give an update. yes. they keep people informed on what's going on about the to build up or no go troop movements, but they're not being alarm is more than that needed at this stage. i'll zeros hotter abdul hamid reporting live from kiff, and he thinks that he told her on the russian side of the board of foreign minister
