9:05 pm
an imminent attack, or the prominence added to an unprecedented threat to the territory. and that's why this gain of this exercise is much larger than the usual exercise as these countries will hold. normally, nato chief has estimated their 30000 russian troops. forces are here now in ballard roast, that would be the largest deployment of russian troop since the end of the cold war and are holding officially war games. basically, a scenario that bella, luce, is being attacked by nato and its leader is being top of, but this is all happening to us 50 kilometers away from the ukranian border until i was away from ukraine's capital. he f, we have so coin fighter shad involved to ask for 100 missile defense systems. it's a large operation and as you said, rush and baller was saying, this is just an exercise news for us. we'll go home after february 20, but there's
9:06 pm
a lot of speculation if this just maybe a small screen for a real attack. so there's a lot of anxiety about these exercises so, so to say, natasha bottom line for us and kids. so these are joseph going on and bella ruth, was washing troops, mean that ukraine is essentially surrounded by russian troops on all 3 sides, how ukrainians? reacting to this what the ukranian president for the michelin ski earlier today said that as far as he was concerned, ukraine had the force and the weapons that it needed to defend itself. any urge people to continue with their daily lives to continue working its business as usual . now, nevertheless, ukrainian or military forces are undertaking exercises around the country were told there are no details, but we understand that they would go on for at least 10 days. so that's as long as those russian military exercises in belarus. on friday,
9:07 pm
the president will then travel to car keys, ukraine's 2nd largest city in the city closest to the russian border for a very symbolic meeting. with his national defense and security council, they would normally meet and kiev bud zalinski has chosen to hold the meeting in car cave. as i said, highly symbolic. he will be talking with his army chief, with the leading officers from the, the navy and his security forces about the situation. we've also been talking, but we've been talking to people here in the city, in care of on how they're feeling at the moment, with those military exercises, less than 200 kilometers away from the capital. while some people we spoke to, of course, our dismissing these as just a bit of theater by the criminal, we're told by one man, others a saying that they feel a certain level of anxiety. ukraine's
9:08 pm
front line may be far from the shooting range in the capital, kiev, but is never, far from the mind of leonid or stout. save the veteran of the conflict in the east of the country where ukrainian forces are fighting russian backed separatists. he fears russia could attack once again, because he doesn't trust vladimir putin. he can do what i wish he was as to the president by the say that it's a boy was a nuclear weapon was all france and i agree with him 100 percent. his like a little dictator unit says people must learn to protect themselves. the owner of this gun store says that more and more people are coming in to buy a weapon. worried by the situation. the sales have gone up by 30 to 40 percent in the last 2 months. in another part of the city, a placement converted into a bomb shelter, one of thousands in kiev that has been reopened in case the worst happens. it was
9:09 pm
billed during the cold war by the russians who have now become the enemy to a full scale invasion would lead to a 3rd world war in the center of europe. it wouldn't be only ukraine involved, but all the other countries, anxiety here over russia's military build up on ukraine's border is being exacerbated by moscow's latest move, military exercises in belarus. less than 200 kilometers from here. but not every one is worried for many daily life is a bigger concern than the kremlin. i think that russia bill are actually mostly like doing this exercise is for the world through her dialect with rush almost like not, not to make it work because they're not interested in the showing emotional phosphate which they're capable of attacking. they want to attack, but would they dare with they really do us more nearly 8 years of conflict, crane's east of cast a long shadow. but most hope that the ongoing diplomatic efforts will put
9:10 pm
a di escalation in sight. the latest crisis. natasha butler, al jazeera kiev says, is president, i said, has announced the supreme judicial counsel will be dissolved magistrates and lawyers have protested outside the palace of justice. and judicial counsel was responsible for ensuring the independence of the judiciary. you both say it says it's become a thing of the past. it's the latest and the sousa decision, so it's taken since sacking the government and suspending parliament in july. i don't think this is a 1st. it's inconceivable. the president of the republic holds all 3 pounds in his hands. a huge step backwards were here today to tell him he should revise this position. it's in contrast to the spirits of the rule of law. one that's based on the separation of powers. libya's parliament is appointed 30 by soccer to replace the interim prime minister. the sugar used to be the interior minister. he said to takeover from aldo hamid de baber. the challenge to libya's unity government comes hours after labor survived,
9:11 pm
an assassination attempt escaped uninjured when his car was shot out in tripoli. malik trina, as more from tripling and today's session in eastern levine, the city of to brook are the parliament said unit in miss lee approved fed, he boss, other as the new p. m. now fed to bizarre, seen by many here in western libya as, as lived as western libya. strong men are he, when he was fort when he was the minister of interior, he took a strong stance against malicious, or that brought him into the sort of the limelight. he got you general support from people, especially the international community. they thought that he could help us stabilize the police force and the security apparatus, especially in western libya, are in terms of balance of power or the current prime minister abdul hamid baber has, for the most part, been able, unable a, to extend his control in eastern libya eastern libya is controlled by the warlord
9:12 pm
khalifa after who in 2019 loss, a military offensive to take the capital. he was unsuccessful. he returned back to western libya and has a huge a power base. there are 30 bushes her and the and curly for after her. i've thought to come to an agreement. in fact, just a little while ago actually for half the spokesman amended, miss molly, i said that they support me parliament's decision to name that he was are as a new prime minister. will this be a smooth transition? was a hammered waiver, says he's not handing over power to this new prime minister, so we're gonna have to wait and see what happens in the next days and months ahead and get his bringing on herself. mattie, his director general at the 2nd statute is a think tank focused on libya and he's joining us by skype from istanbul. thank you very much indeed for being with us. can that fatty the sugar actually take over if the interim premier said de backup? deborah refuses to step down. well, it has certainly con,
9:13 pm
i don't believe that was the objective. i don't think that the government was appointed with the prime minister was appointed without a votes, as she was appointed because the other candidate withdrew his candidacy minutes before a vote. and so he was approved by decree, essentially by i get found out that she speaker of the parliament. now the plan is not to develop a vision for libya to govern libya. but it is to disrupt the ability of this govern of national unity to present itself as the sole unified government in libya. it is also a plan to disrupt any attempt to return to the political negotiation to the roadmap for our elections without having the house of representatives at the center of this . so i think it's more of a disruptive move. it will duplicates the governments that will return libya to years of parallel divisions if it wasn't, if it doesn't continue. and then it's really about blankenship. it's about the ways in which political actors infection spoil political prices and, and do that by playing this really nasty game of darren and,
9:14 pm
and try to see how much their opponent can move and push them and bend them to their will. and i think today, this is also about putting the u. n. special envoys, stephanie williams at the center of this crisis to ensure that they can bent her to their will and ensure that the road map suits their needs and the needs are quite clear. this goes back, not only in the last 12 months, but over the last 5 years since libya's last piece process in the city of scott to morocco. this is about control of the presidency. this is about control of the supreme commander of the armed forces post. it's about determining libya's post good duffy political character, and that's what this conflict has been about for several years. irrespective of when the paragraphs happened, which sectors are at the table. the central demand has always been, they removed any one in their way. and today that happens to be using someone like i'd have a shocker as merely a political tool in a larger and longer road game that they've been playing just at least 2014. ok if i understand what you're saying correctly, at least in the short term,
9:15 pm
this essentially puts a hiatus on on politics in the country. that things essentially come to a standstill. how do you unpack that? what kind of agreements are they looking for? are going to satisfy both sides. it would allow the political processes to carry on and eventually possibly lead to elections. brantley, it depends on which, which track we're going with. is this track about trying to bring forth an an election and which election, i mean according to the parliament, they want to see presidential elections but not parliamentary elections. so that they can extend them and c 8 years and remove them. and they of the government of national unity for 8 months. if we go back to the berlin process, that was the un back process that happened shortly before coven in january 2020. this is about unifying the structures of the states. that would be a total reset on the political, military, and economic structures in the state and a brand new for slate that has been completely forgotten. so today is very difficult to determine which you know what, what would be the best than the most appropriate road map. that's why we're seeing all this brinkman ship. i would say today that it's very simple in terms of the
9:16 pm
government of us unity. they would just like to extend their mandate by any means that they can and that would probably include trying to extend it into the next election cycle with the parliament. i think it's much more structural. i feel i felt a has not just the speaker and the chief speaker of the parliament and tried to have a shot is not the prime minister. they have allied themselves, the helicopter, whose libyan arab armed forces stand institution, me outside of the states. and that central problem of the last 12 months and going back over the last 5 years, is that they haven't figured a mechanism to marry the libyan are about forces into the states. and that's why we're seeing all the sprinkling ship. the so much obviously at stake and the so much at the table to negotiate. but it's very, very difficult to determine what the, when, and it's essentially the wednesday or will be to mediate this. and that's where the, the crucial next questions are. but in the interim, and in the near term, we're going to see more parallel divisions and returned to the period between 20152020, why libya had multiple governments,
9:17 pm
and that's going to be destructive for daily life. for libyans. it's also going to cause a problem for the un who wants to present an image that that road map was successful . the one to present an image that the peace process was successful, but it has literally crumbled before our eyes over the last several hours as we again see the despite world of progress that was made. berlin in january 2020. the same actors are spoiling the very same process when you could get your thoughts on this on several matters. we appreciate that. thank you very much. indeed. thank you . sadie arabia has warned it'll bomb mahathy targets and the eminent capital santa and is told civilians to leave areas used for military purposes. it comes after 12 people were report of the injured in saudi arabia by falling debris at the up high international airport. after a john was intercepted by local air defenses. the 30 coalition says it's inexcusable that who the rebels deliberately targeted a civilian airport don't strikes by the have his have intensified in the past few weeks. so what i had on the news are including promising to end detentions for

9:19 pm
just bring this up today. where are we as far as the protests are concerned? well, this is the day for the border crossing protest. but this hidden protest really started in the city of ottawa. on january 29th. the truckers were blocking streets with big 18 wheeled trucks and now they moved that conway to the borders and they've effected a number of places you mentioned that they shut down the ambassador bridge from detroit to windsor. well they've also today on thursday shut down the bridge in manitoba, which connects with north dakota. so those are 2 crossings that have been almost entirely shut down. and then here i'm at the port sure. on crossing that right there is the blue water bridge and you can see the trucks are moving, but at a crawl we had a panel boarder behind us a little bit earlier and he was literally moving faster than those trucks. and there's a 3 hour wait for the trucks to line up. that's because this bridge really wasn't
9:20 pm
designed to take that much traffic, but it's very close to the bridge that connects detroit and windsor. so all of that traffic has been diverted over here. and those protests are continuing. police and politicians don't seem willing to crack down in windsor the mayor there said the concern was that if you clear out 200 truckers today, you might have 300 tomorrow and they want to resolve this piece. really. it is true that wall just introduce the canadian prime minister, has said he's not going to be pressured on this issue. there have been provinces in canada that have relaxed, those coven restrictions that the protestors are upset about their they started on this mainly because they were required to be vaccinated to come into canada. well, this protest continues without and, and we've seen no cracked in one of the interesting things is where you are. of course as a is at the heart of america is vehicle building industry,
9:21 pm
particularly michigan did did to try to charge and so on was just mentioning, of course, as having an impact on general motors. one would imagine that other auto manufacturers are going to be looking at exactly this and getting really quite worried. that's right. this is just the 4th day of blocking borders, but already the auto industry has been dramatically effected. ford is closing a plan on the canadian side, toyota is closing 3 plants and then general motors here on the michigan size is shutting down. assembly lines are stopping certain shifts because this whole industry runs on a just in time manufacturing system. that means a part might be made in canada on monday, and then it's in a car in detroit on wednesday. that's great in good times because it allows them not to have to stock up a lot of equipment at each of these manufacturer sites. but at times like the pandemic that's been difficult to get to the supply chain has been disrupted. and this just exacerbates that. so there are supply per companies here on the us side,
9:22 pm
where people have said they might have to lay people off. so this is going to reverberate throughout the industry and it's already causing serious problems. john, thanks very much. john hanson and port city of the city of port huron in michigan. the philippine government welcoming back foreign travelers after 2 years have covered restrictions via that makes estimated to have cost nearly $8000000000.00 in last tourist income. marlon allen dorgan reports from ball province. it's a region, it's felt the impact more than most. despite being devastated by a powerful earthquake in 2013, these century old churches remained a top tourist destination until the pandemic broke out the months long locked down and the closing of international borders to visitors devastated the tourism industry. here for months, leading thousands and employed just as the desires province was slowly recovering

9:24 pm
a renewed sense of hope and purpose. the impact is so bossy because you're talking about the drivers, the board thurs, the tour of the resource, we're looking at a great multiplier effect. and that also reverberates to agriculture that reverberates the fisheries. because all own that influx of visitors contributes to a volume of need earthquakes, a super typhoon and the pandemic. the litany of tragedies may seem unbearable. ah, but the roman catholic church has always served as a moral and spiritual con, pass for communities here. and so in times of hardship, the faithful say prayers to god and know that somehow there will be a better way jamal alan dog and al jazeera behold, province central philippine burns to prince charles as tested positive for covered

9:31 pm
it still recognizes debater as prime minister despite the challenge. is car manufacturer, general motors is canceled. shift said of michigan factory is canadian truckers block of vital border crossing there, protesting against covered 90 restrictions. g. m was also re routed trucks to keep it other plant running. ok, let's return to our top story on russia and ukraine. as we mentioned earlier, you k prime minister bars johnson and nato secretary general gen stoughton bag of held talks in brussels. suttonberg said the possibility of conflict remained high. the number of russian forces is going up. the warning time for a possible attack is going down. nate was not a threat to russia, but to must be prepared for the worst wat remaining strongly committed to finding a political solution. renewed russian aggression will lead to more natal presence,
9:32 pm
not less. let's take a look at nato's biggest military interventions until now. afghanistan was near to was largest operation when one of the biggest ever international crisis management's the military lines took charge 2 years after the u. s. invasion in 2001 later bite uprising in libya, 11 years ago, overthrew and killed. veteran leader mama gadhafi. and following the breakup of yugoslavia in 1992 natal warplanes, carried out a bombing campaign, killing around 2 and a half 1000 civilians. the operation officially ended in 2004, after tens of thousands of you and mandated peacekeepers were sent in. theresa fallen as a former member of the strategic advisors group to nato. she says the military alliance has changed since at last carried out a major deployment countries in central eastern europe. it because they feared russia asked for membership. so this started this period of expanding nato
9:33 pm
membership or country to asked to be members. he didn't ask to join nato to fight rosa, but actually to be protected from us. so i would say that would be the biggest change right now. you can is not a member of nato. what's happening now is that some voices are being sent as a reassurance to nato members, but there are no nato countries sending soldiers to ukraine and all. so everyone is just kind of bolstering their presence in a weight and c position. and the u. s. has sense weapons and trainers, but no one is sending soldiers with diplomatic efforts. continuing representatives from ukraine and russia are in berlin for a 2nd round of so called normandy format talks mediated by germany and france. donna kane has more from berlin. what's happening on thursday in berlin to different meetings, the 1st one, the normandy format. what we have is a collection of very senior advisors, what they refer to as sherpas,
9:34 pm
but very senior advisors who work for the heads of state or heads of government of the, for respective governments. they're all in berlin, all talking to each other. they could be seen as the facilitators of the sorts of gender that might be agreed upon. it talks about talks as it were, it's a way of trying to see what each government's potential room for compromise might be, and areas where they really can't compromise. that sort of thing. that is what has been taking place on thursday in berlin as also worth pointing out that separately to that you have the visits of the heads of governments of the 3 baltic states who are members of the european union, but also members of nato on their heads. of government are missing all our shots, the german chancellor in the chart slurry. here in berlin. interestingly, the german government's position these ivy. the baltic states where we know that
9:35 pm
the german government is sending a further contingent of troops to one of the baltic baltic states. lithuania, well is now a measure. the lithuanians have said that they are going to send some advisers instructors military instructors to ukraine, plus a consignment of surface to air missiles while the cold stinger missiles to bolster the munitions. the weapons that is that the ukrainian government has americans are suffering the highest inflation rate in 40 years. presidential bible says higher prices are forecast to ease by the end of the year. the consumer price index rose by $7.00 and a half percent over the 12 months to january. that's the steepest rise since 1982 energy costs led by oil and petrol. price rises, swords, 27 percent. that was the biggest inflationary increase. the sobering statistics of strengthened expectations that the fed central bank is going to raise the interest rate as early as next month or william blake. so professor of economics and former
9:36 pm
u. s. federal regulator, he's joining us live from minneapolis via zoom. good to have you. we're the so thank you very much indeed. and what's driving this change? overwhelmingly, it's supply chain problems and as you pointed out, energy opec decided to exercise some of that power and increase the price of oil. but in the us context, it's particularly supply chain disruption. how do you take the heat out of a situation like this? well, the, it isn't she, dear me, that metaphor usually is when you're talking about there's just way too much demand in the economy. and you are, you know, the supposedly chasing dollars type of stuff because that's not what we have here for an automobile. modern automobile has 30000 parts. roughly. tesla's mar, 3 has 10000 unique parts. if one of those parts is disrupted,
9:37 pm
you can't make the automobile, typically one of those unique carts. and that's what you're experiencing when you have that. then people bid up the price of the remaining manufacturers, and that's why the biden ministration thinks it's going to ease by the end of the year. and because the supply chain will likely get better if cove, it continues with its trend downward in most of the world. does anybody benefit when in place inflation starts to rise? sure. and lots of people benefit when inflation rises, mostly people who are heavily invested in the stock market. and that happens to be in most countries, the richest people in the country. so the richest people moment, imagine the upper middle class are probably going to be doing fairly well out of this. or is that true? i mean, those, the people who are,
9:38 pm
