6:02 pm
potentially very dangerous. it is that what officials have been warning people all throughout the northeast of the united states is have some fun and it's no, but don't have too much fun because this is a big storm. it's the biggest of this winter. so far they're saying it could be a historic storm, as you can see behind me, we're in the heart of times square in new york city. and you can get a sense of how much snow is out here right now. and i'm actually going to pen around this way and you can see down the street here, how few cars there are looking down this avenue. and the visibility isn't great, it's actually gotten better, but it's only about 2 or 3 blocks. so you can see before. busy it's kind of white out to type of conditions are about 55000000 people in the northeast to the united states that are bearing the brunt of this storm right now. here in new york city,

6:04 pm
to sit for a while and that's why they're worrying about coastal flooding, particularly in new england area. and we're already seeing some of that in southern new jersey. so there is definitely risks of coastal flooding that is with this, the longer this kind of lingers. but this is a storm that's hitting very hard. and as you mentioned, it depends on what sort of trajectory this storm takes. but bottom line is it is predicted that it was going to pack a big punch and it's doing exactly that. we have to watch coastal flooding. it's not hitting now, but as the day progresses, that's only potentially could see it. ok gave the moment thanks very much. gabriel is under the life for the news in times square or other big story. this are the stand off over ukraine continues between moscow, washington and it's in a so allies, as more than 100000 russian troops remained station to close to the border with

6:06 pm
a difficult situation for a parent, especially when she says this little sign of any help coming love. so no household are furniture all this time. the government hasn't provided anything and won't do anything right now. either any of nobody has told us anything going 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 battles between pro russian separatist and de ukrainian army the mural of little molina, who lost all of her family and her left arm in a rocket that, that a reminder of the suffering. the city has been through a few days ago, parliament passed the bill that allows civilians to carry weapons in case of
6:07 pm
invasion. but sales aren't going up yet. new finding q and up and there's no panic in 20132014. we were selling a lot of automatic firearms, but at the moment there's no such demand. and it hasn't been an increase in demand for ammunition buffering, it sucks you people here are resilient and many say they are ready to face any danger. the village is near the front line and now part of the military zone residents are allowed to return here because it's actually fairly safe at the moment. but we've been driving around and we could barely find anyone. this woman is one of the few people we came across, switching between russian and ukrainian. she tells us life is good. they have water, electricity, and a shop. and she has made her own plans, in case of war, move out of my so be don't one. yep. of, of,
6:08 pm
we've built an underground shelter in our own backyard. we'll go that we don't want to leave. this is our head, didn't a stu visiting vala demo, zalinski called on people to remain calm and he's blaming. foreign media was spreading panic. ukrainians have learned to rely on themselves carry on with their lives while skidding through the fog of information. when that bill hamid elder 0 in eastern ukraine, well, if there was a conflict, heard the military capabilities of russia and ukraine stack up russian air strikes have the potential to overwhelm ukraine's air defenses. before troops even crossed the border president vladimir putin has built up army units that could be used in a ground invasion, such as the 8th god that oversees pro russian separatists in eastern ukraine. and then there's the 1st guards tank army which has been modernized. ukraine believes 127000 russian soldiers may be massed along that border. russia has sent fighter
6:09 pm
jets and air defense systems to western belarus. for combat readiness checks and military drills, but ukraine's military has doubled in size since 2014 and its troops have recent combat experience against pro russian separatist. alexander teet off is a russia analyst at queens university in belfast. he joins us on skype. alexander teet off, is there an obvious off ramp here when it comes to this desire on the part of the ukrainian leader to keep the diplomacy going on? i think yes, i think you have to it look awfully a difference. a kind of political motivation between ukrainian leadership and american one ah, in regard regarding the intelligence, the could be kind of different interpretations, but i think in a political motivation on, on ukrainians to kind of to keep the economy going not to spread the panic. and i've kind of accept western how, what without a kind of going into or allows you to panic mode is,
6:10 pm
is ethic. it overrides other considerations. it seems as though whitelist do russians believe that russia will invade well i just needed to st. petersburg earlier this month. and i literally know when i spoke to even thought that anything like that would be possible that be an all alt ah, invasion of ukraine by russia unprovoked would be. it's simply something or no. and no one believes that there is issue of course of the is don barza and separate areas there. if anything happens, it would be around that sort of area. and the question is whether it will be localized to this region, or it will be a use as excuse for larger invasion. but as so far as i could tell of both room talking to people and to are looking at them, the various analyst reports. and so forth, nobody really considered a full scale invasion, are by roger as a possibility. is there any chance that the current european security architecture,
6:11 pm
or the robust stance towards that could be altered so that sergei live rav more 2436 hours ago? now he was saying in this written response from the u. s. state department that he was hinting there might be stuff in there that we can work on it. is that what he's saying this? this apparatus might be tweaked or fine tuned short all of the united states and the nato allies saying ok, we will jefferson all plans to expand to these cars. clearly that's a red line for them. well yes, i think this expansion of you drew into into your grain and further it is a bit of a red herring. there is no immediate plans. the one discussions in 2008 and the book or a summons in april to 1000 it. but that been put to rest after rush invaded, judging the felony. ah, so there's no kind of glass actually discussing about ukraine. what's, what is russians moiz or informal cooperation between and military support, a to ukraine, from the nato countries. ah, so, so i think there is kind of
6:12 pm
a wide range of options which people can piss you if they were willing to engage. but russians are thinking very high demands and you know, they the multiple way much wider than you grain. and they insist off having, as you mentioned, a review over the whole european, a picture that nato is not the sole security organization which decides all metal security in, in, in euro this, i think they still quite far away from each other that position out of know what it will take for them to actually meet and start discussing those can have brought the principles rather than specifics about employment, us oliver, or suggested how much of this comes down to both sides. the kremlin, and washington reacting as they should react for the consumption of the other side . i mean, let me put in so clearly here has, has marched himself up to the top of a hill in a way. and any threats if it's to be deemed to be credible and therefore make him
6:13 pm
feel good in his position, hit his robust stance. he's got to be prepared to carry through on that threat. therefore, mr. biden has got to react as if mister putin might carry through on that threat. yes, that's right. i think was from the russian position. is that the only thing which americans finally agreed to discuss things like such as into an immediate race, marseilles deployment of various forces in europe and so forth. things which they would didn't want to talk about before was only the threat of russian invasion. right? so it seems to be that this is the way all of forcing americans to deploy, but that only works as it said, if they actually believe that russia might, might invade and visit very green line. you know, what, how far you want to push it. because so far as i can tell, there's nothing for us to get without out out
6:14 pm
a law against ukraine because a longer term perspective is that they can hold the country. are these thanks as will be balls and they will have to retreat eventually. so, ah, one of the same time, they still using the threat of invasion as a can a very useful diplomatic pressure points for, for americans to everyone. but it's very, very dangerous. anything can go very wrong that very easily and we will wind up in the war, which actually nobody really planned, but on it for the, with the threat limits advantage just happen. so a very, very warning times to be honest, if i was living in eastern europe. ok, thank you so much. so your analysis here on the user, alexander t. tough with queens, university, belfast loss more still to come for year and then use our including plagued by production problems and crashes. now the race is on to salvage and f $35.00 us pfeiffer jet. it's gone down in the south china sea, a crusty issue. why arose interrupting in france?

6:16 pm
. and then within a matter of weeks, a video was, was released that showed them initially appeared that they had been killed by members of the group. so click subsequently, investigations by a group of international media houses. and even by the un itself has raised a lot of questions and revealed evidence that this killing could have actually been ordered and orchestrated by the highest levels of the government of former president joseph camilla, who was in power at the time. now the government always denied that, and certainly those in the doc today don't include anybody cd from the security operators. the most high ranking person there is a kernel from the connelly's army, but the defense others who investigated this trial say that those people in the don't don't include any of those who are actually responsible for these killings. and what can we expect from the court?
6:17 pm
well, it's a military court, all of the judges army officers, military court in congress before have been widely criticized by rights groups for not giving fair trials and for not having independence from the military chain of command or from the control of the state. so in that sense, many people will expect will be expecting the outcome of this proceeding to be exactly what those in command have chosen it to be. the defense say that all of the people in the dock aren't indeed the ride suspects. and us, what we've heard from, from many others as well, but we'll be following the proceedings and we'll let you know what we hear as soon as we get it, malcolm. thank you very much. malcolm web with h one is live from nairobi, will staying in democratic republic of congo. thousands of people have been forced from their homes because of fighting, but in the army and a rebel group known as m 23. on tuesday, an army position was attacked in rats, flora, north of the city of goma,

6:34 pm
because if they don't go with him, what would that mean new elections? well, right now, that's the consent 1st, that sergio matter rela, should be asked to be the next president of italy. he is served a 7 year term already, but as you are saying, he's already said he doesn't want to do that. he is 80 years old and he's said, but he's not interested in the role. why has he emerged as the leading candidate? because all the political parties in parliament have failed to achieve consensus over the last week. and so on saturday, he became the leading figure in the latest vote. it's up to around a 1000 members of parliament in the senate, as well as regional representatives. and they put him in poll position on saturday morning, but that was the 7th vote in the last week. right now,
6:35 pm
the 8 vote is getting underway. it could in theory, take hours. but sergio matter rather has been off now by the leaders of the main parties in parliament to be the next president. previously prime minister mario drug, he had been mentioned by a lot of political analysts as a possible president. but the parties thought that that would be a bad idea because it would disrupt the stability of the government when there are a major challenges in terms of common recovery and the like to be dealt with. so that's where we're at at the moment to all these political parties involved in this process there and one could easily lose count of how many governments italy has had since 2nd world war. it must be up in the, the high forty's of low fifty's, at least by now the, all the political parties come out of this process looking a bit damaged in the bit tainted because the votes of the looking at them going, why can you not just take a decision and come up with somebody. why can you not find that consensus? i think so. i mean, it really is known for having governments that don't last very long,
6:36 pm
which is why the presidency is seen as a source of stability over sergio matter. l as term and he's seeing fine governments come and go. and yeah, right now the sensor writes coalition in parliament is looking a bit embarrassed if you like. because on falling day they were nominating the head of the secret services. elizabeth bologna as their preferred candidate saying that it would be great because she would be the 1st woman to become president and then support just failed to materialize within that coalition. some parties say no, we don't agree. so there is a lot of analysis. the materials on vini had of the far right league policy, would seem to have done badly or provides, and some of he's, he's close associates and other parties have denounced this whole round of voting as, as manipulating, if you like. what we know right now is that the sergio matter rela,
6:37 pm
ac accept and if he wins this vote will be expected to stand down as soon as there's some sort of stability in the next few months. something similar happened in 2013. when his predecessor was persuaded to stay on for a while until there was a government. but so it's not clear of the time scale, we're looking at not even thank you so much. nothing bob of the following, that italian political story for us here on the news on saudi lebanese business man, i'll hurry, is entering politics in lebanon. he made the announcement days after his brother and former prime ministers out all hurry said he'd be stepping away from public life bava to fulfill the aspirations of his late father rough week. i'll harry was assassinated in 2005. now apple has come up with a personal safety glade for its latest gadget. this is the gadget. this is an air tag device. it can be used to locate lost items or items that you don't want to

lose luggage. a dog, a cat, a car, but several women have come forward to say, these are being misused by stalkers, one woman discovered her movements were being tracked after finding the device in her cars gas tank. now it's paired with a phone and the user of the mobile can get real time data on the movements of the air tag. i phones have a feature that can alert a user if an unknown air tag is detected. moving with them over time. let's talk to jody westby. she's chief executive at global cyber risk. she joins us on skype from washington. jody, thanks for talking to us here on the usa. this is slightly bigger than, say, a euro coin. it's not huge. barry, clearly it could be put into a gym bag, a gas tank duct taped on somebody's car, or why is it taken apple more than a year to come up with this kind of revamped safety guide for these things?
6:39 pm
well, i would guess 2 things. one is they didn't want to come out with something that would scare people about the product. number 2, there, there were cases of misuse and that raised awareness on the 3rd, i think as that there's just been a huge leap in awareness and that surveillance, without all the pegasus, i'm in s o i, spyware. that has been sold and used by governments. there's been a lot of recent government actions around the world and different countries against journalists and activists. and there are they now and more awareness of misinformation, disinformation campaigns on social media. everybody is much more aware of privacy risks than they were a few months ago. even and so i think that that probably has propelled also apple wanting to be a good company to put out something to help that users protect their privacy and
6:40 pm
not have this device be misused. so it's a good thing to do. it may be a little late, but my guess is they didn't really see the need for it until the last several months. okay. but when it was launched, quote in april of last year, because they are relatively new on the apple did say it had built in safety measures. but the built in safety measures really come down to one's ability to do a deep dive into how you have your phone set up. cuz the crucial thing here is your phone, not tracking a device that you want to keep safe by putting this in through that thing, whatever that thing is, it comes down to your phone telling you, you got one of these things on your person or near you that belongs to somebody else and that person is following it, therefore they're following. you and your phone will pick up on that and tell you that well, the phone. yes, it can. and so it is the configurations. busy and the settings that so important,
6:41 pm
and i think again, it goes with people adopting this technology. they've created it in a way that it is intuitive to use. so people don't read the instructions guides, they don't pay a lot of people don't understand really everything in the settings because they haven't had to learn that they were, it's intuitive enough. they got the device to work the way they wanted it to. but going in and understanding your settings for users, for sharing, ford, deleting certain configurations. and that is something that a lot of people don't know how to do. so i think now they realize there are some risks. people, of course, to things when you come out and in technology, there can be bugs and there were some bugs in the 1st air tags and that they've can corrected those. but then to there's all the nefarious uses of people misusing a device. and then it's time to warn people and tell them how to avoid that. so it
6:42 pm
or it was a little above they came out, the device had some kinks in it that that they had to fix. but then also they had finally thought they had to put out something to deal with. some of the negative aspects of use that people were doing high planting these devices, does it contracts someone? and that is a very interested in trying to look for a 2nd. sure if, if i make it, we are coming to the, the end of our time on this, this is just an apple device. this is specifically to do with i phones and i pads. it's not an android device. point number one, point number 2. when you talk about nefarious uses, all the a little bit like the apple ear pods i. e, this is always switched on, therefore it's always trans missing. and it's not until you, if the disconnected or the battery goes flat, that it stops sending out, pinging out your location. yes, well, it is always on that. so as alexis, so as eco, all of these devices, these always on devices are something that,
6:43 pm
at people don't understand very well. and so it, it, it does create a risk. and there is a convenience that there is a risk factor. and it's balancing that, and i don't think people have a good understanding yet of the balancing. so this, that guide is a good idea a, but people need to be much more aware and read the guide. and i think about them all the ways that this device could be used in that they want to try to use one of them. jody. this is an interesting and an important story as well because we're talking about people's personal security and their safety. thank you. so much judy west, be the chief executive at global cyber risk. thank you. sciences are concerned about a new sub there into cubic 19. it's called ami crohn be a point to has been called stealth or micron because it's hardest, thanks using the traditional p c. r. testing has been confirmed in 40 countries,

experts say it appears to be even more transmissible than the original omicron strain. dr. richard le cells is an infectious disease, is specialist a cause of the natal research and innovation sequencing platform. he says the sub variant is not a major cause for concern. the fundamentals haven't changed. so we have some good preliminary data from the u. k. this week that the protection from the vaccines is very similar against b, a dot one and b a dot to. and so the fundamentals of what we need to do have not changed. there may be some subtle differences and there may be something about this that, that makes it slightly better. it didn't affect in people and passing from person to person. but ultimately, we know what we need to do to protect people and to protect populations. thousands of trunk drivers are stranded on the border between chile and argentina as the
