efforts to prevent an attack on ukraine, fears of a russian invasion are growing with britain's foreign minister now calling that quote, highly likely. meanwhile, ukraine's president is urging the west to avoid panic over rushes to build up on its countries border. and on sunday night, or chief in stoughton back, welcome, more support for ukraine's defense, but ruled out any boots on the ground. we have no plans to deploy natal combat troops or to ukraine. we do a lot of stuff to help ukraine or strength this ability capability to, to defend itself. but again, ukraine is not that natal allied, so the 100 percent security guarantees that an attack on one i'll i will trigger the response from the whole answer that applies for nate darlise. meanwhile, germany as anger at nato allies with its refusal to send weapons to ukraine, the us and britain have financed arms deliveries, mostly hand guns, ammunition,
7:03 am
and anti tank missiles. but berlin says the export of lethal weapons to the region could increase tensions with russia. ah, russian fighter jets in eastern europe, moscow's military build up on ukraine's border. has he f desperate to arm it's defense forces? ukraine has asked germany for support, but has met reluctance from the new coalition government. while berlin has approved the delivery of 5000 helmets. it said no to leave. the weapons is good that i did at one mit. that was right now we're trying to engage russia and diplomatic talks to avert a war. in the middle of europe, i believe supplying weapons would send the complete run signal. it would not lead to an easing of diplomatic tensions, but as it ought to come. the german government is still deciding whether nato ally, estonia continued crane heavy artillery, made in the former east germany berlin's policy not to export lethal weapons to conflict regions is backed by the greens, because in, at loj launched it. of course, it's a central question,
7:04 am
is it possible to be toughen, engage in dialogue with russia and deliver weapons? i'd say no, and that's why our policy is the right one alone with the night of the subs in making a waste. if you've asthma, that policy for now doesn't include a stop to the node stream to pipeline. but if russia does attack ukraine, chancellor olive salt isn't ruling out painful sanctions of more now joined by the w melinda cray. melinda, the governing s. p. d is meeting today to discuss the issue of how to deal with russia and, and to build up on the ukraine border. so chance or all of shows his own party can't agree really on their own foreign policy wise. that that's right, that germans often attribute aversion to participating in military action of any kind to their world war to history, to this country's responsibility for a war that caused unfathomable suffering and death all across europe. and especially for the s p

d. germany's cold war experience reinforced that stats in the eyes of many germans and many social democrats, that conflict was overcome. not by deterrence, but by diplomacy. not because nato stationed pershing missiles on the border to eastern europe. that because the social democratic chancellor really brunt adopted for us to pull a t east policy which cultivated closer economic and diplomatic ties to the east. so reflecting both parts of that history, germany has passed. laws that formerly prohibit the shipment of weapons to conflict regions, but in fact, this country is one of the world's biggest weapons exporters. and these arms often wind up in wars out whether it's sudan, syria, human or elsewhere. so it's very hard to understand why the government is being so dogmatic in this particular case. so it's a complicated issue for historical reasons,
7:06 am
really. but how is this approach affecting germany is reputation on the international stage with its nato partners as well? well, those 5000 helmets that the government has now finally said, it's going to send many people to many critics, not only in here, but in other allied capitals as well. that's simply looks like either an insult or a joke. and the fact is, many of these critics say that either the german government apparently doesn't get the idea of deterrence, that sending defense, if not offensive defensive weapons, might actually help avert a conflict. or that the government simply views, commercial ties with russia. that's more important than regional stability or commitments to partners. and in fact, the head of the globally influential unit security conference and a former german ambassador to the u. s. said yesterday,
