9:02 pm
president earlier visited a police training camp, wrote amused lensky says, warnings of a russian invasion are only provoking, panic is our borders, it's our territory. you know, i have to speak with our people, like you do, you know, like, like a president and say people throughs and the truth that we have different information and know the best friend for enemies that hispanic in our country. and all this information details only for bernie doesn't help us on the streets of the ukrainian capital, kiev war veterans were among thousands on the march in a civilian show of strength and rushes, foreign minister, se gala rob has accused us of waging a propaganda campaign during a phone call a few hours ago with the u. s. secretary of state antony blanket. well,
9:03 pm
we have correspondence covering developments across the region and beyond. in a few moments we'll hear from natasha butler, who's in the ukrainian capital key at dorsey jabari standing by in moscow world to have the latest on the russian military exercises with bella was from saint boffin, who's near the ukrainian barouche, a border. but 1st we go to our white house correspondent, kimberly hawk it in washington dc. so kimberly a phone conversation between present biden and russia's leader that lasted a little over an hour. any details about what they talked about? yeah, i just got the read out moments ago. i'm looking at it at the same time as you and what it says here is that according to a senior administration official, the phone call between the 2 presidents was professional. it was also substantial and was communicated by the u. s. president was the message that u. s. allies and partners will respond decisively. it isn't pose swift and severe costs on russia. if it chooses the alternate path to diplomacy president by to
9:04 pm
reiterated that a further russian invasion of ukraine would produce widespread human suffering and diminished russia's standing president by to was clear with president putin. but while the united states for mays prepared to engage in diplomacy and full coordination with allies of partners, it's equally prepared for other scenarios that i can also tell you that according to a senior administration official, this 62 minute phone call also seemed to produce no change in the dynamic that was the word from this official. in other words, the united states, as it put forward a number of ideas that it felt were in the interests of the allies that they felt would address some of russia's stated security concerns. but the take away from this phone call was that it was still unclear whether or not russia was choosing to invade ukraine. and the takeaway also was judging from this,
9:05 pm
this the sort of what is being observed on the ground. if russia chooses to go that path and base ukraine, the feeling of the united states and its partners is that the outcome would be catastrophic. so the takeaway is, this call was substantial. but again, the feeling in the mood and the white house right now is that this attack, that could be imminent in terms of an invasion. and the view also is that the transit, lactic partners would be aligned in their response, united in their risk. it's in a way that they have not been before. kimberly, thank you for that. kimberly. how can my for her say with the latest from the white house that's get the view now from moscow? dose jabari is in russia's capital for a, so a lot of diplomatic contacts happening to day a door. so what is the word and view for moscow on how it's all going well, the kremlin is being unusually silent, given the number of phone calls that have been going back and forth between high
9:06 pm
ranking russian officials and their american counterparts. we haven't heard about what the russian president spoke to with the american president. the kremlin hasn't released any statements or readouts from that called that just ended. but we heard from the elisa palace in france, where the french president emanuel mac wrong spoke with vladimir putin before the russian president spoke to the u. s. president. and according to that read out from the elisa pilots, the french president did not receive any indications that vladimir putin intended to engage in any kind of an offensive, manu crane. and a micron reiterated dad's diplomacy must be the path forward and that they are. he's committed to continuing the discussions with the russian president, of course, is, comes after a monument. wrong visited vladimir putin here in moscow on monday. and they had a 6 hour meeting. and then among them a call went on to kiev, where he held
9:07 pm
a series of meetings with the president and other officials there. and he was supposed to call vladimir putin and discuss what they thought of his proposals, that macro had taken with him at. now we understand that they french president has also been speaking to the cranium president vladimir zalinski, and he's also going to be speaking with the german chancellor, olaf schultz, later today as well. so there seems to be a lot going on, and for now, the kremlin needs remaining very tight lipped about how they perceive these phone conversations to be taking place door. so what about these reports of a u. s. submarine, reportedly violating russia's territorial waters in the far east. what marie, hearing about this ah, well, the information we're getting is from russia's defense ministry and according to them, there was an incident on earlier today, off of coral islands in the pacific ocean. this just north of japan, apparently
9:08 pm
a u. s. submarine entered russian territorial waters according to the officials. and they were warned once and they didn't respond. and then they were warned again . and finally, they retreated now as a result of that, the russian ministry has summoned the american defense at sasha, here in moscow to explain what took place. but the russians are also saying that they will do whatever is necessary to protect their territorial waters. and that the united states should be cautious to try and prevent these kinds of incidents from happening. i think this just highlights how tense the situation is at the moment. of course the russian navy is carrying out exercises all around this country. and this is one of the areas that they're doing that. we also know that the russian defense minister spoke to his american counterpart late earlier today. and we believed that conversation took place after this incident. and the only information we got from the kremlin about that call was that the 2 men reiterate 3rd, their assurances to each other that they will continue to discuss security measures
9:09 pm
that are in the interest of their country. so there is a lot of a diplomatic activity going on in this incident, certain highlights how tense the situation is. door said jabari in moscow. thank you very much for that update and alive now to natasha butler, who's in ukraine, his capital kia natasha, the ukranian president, calling on people not to panic. a made these affairs of an imminent russian invasion. what, what's a sentiment among people there? how concerned are they will it has to be said, the ukranian president brought him is lensky suddenly has a very difficult situation on his hands. he is calling on people not to panic. he is calling on people to stay call. but at the same time, we have a series of things happening, which are causing some anxiety. we now have the dutch airline. cale am saying that it is canceling all its flights in and out of ukraine. a flight was due to
9:10 pm
a come to kiev this evening. that has been cancelled as have all further flights. the allies, as he doesn't want to fly over ukrainian as space at this critical time. we'll have to see if any other airlines follow suit. you then have a countries that are advising their citizens to leave the country immediately or lease very soon. if they can, you have the u. s. embassy pulling out it's diplomats from the capital p f. so a lot of things that are causing some nervousness, even though russia continues to insist that it has no plans to invade or attack ukraine. but of course on hasn't been the message from the white house that insist that perhaps portia is planning to attack. so people have very mixed feelings. they don't really know what to think, but we're out of raleigh earlier today, a rally in the city, thousands of people came out. they came out to say that whatever happens that they
9:11 pm
would defend ukraine. ha ha. so out of her, sort of a clear message from key of to moscow at a rally with thousands of people are choo, cranes, government to stand up to russia. some here, ford for ukraine. veterans of the countries war with russian back separatists in the east. and they say they'll fight again. we are ready, we are ready to fight. if it happens, we don't want to, but it will happen. we are here to say, this kind of meeting is about the brand new people do go together. all i want to get to so that we're not separated real over content, and we're also, i'm protected if it needed in any time. so away we are here. some demonstrators gathered beneath the statue of tad, us shift jenko, and 19th century poet, an artist, a symbol of ukrainian national pride. as moscow continues to build up its military
9:12 pm
hardware and forces on ukraine's border. some western intelligence officials say kiev could be a target. washington says that russia could attack ukraine at any moment. the kremlin says it has no plans to invade, but some countries are taking no chances and advising their citizens to leave. the u. s. is evacuating its diplomats. a difficult situation for ukraine's president who called for com, the truce, did we have different information? and now the best friend for enemies that hispanic in our country. and all this information details only for benny doesn't help us with so much conflicting information. most people here don't know what to believe. some say they've heard it all before. others anxious, but no one wants another generation growing up with another wall. latasha buckler, al jazeera keith. meanwhile,
9:13 pm
russia is continuing its military drills with bell russian forces near the border with ukraine al jazeera, that boston is at the bellows ukraine border. she says the exercises are raising more concerns about moscow's intentions. there's a lot of anxiety about these exercises that officially started the, the main face a couple of days ago, officially a bellows and russia are training for an attack by nato. they. these are war games . but as a lot of speculation, if this truck build up was basically meant for something else, maybe a 2nd front for a rush are basically in belarus. they can easily go to the ukranian capital key, f, which is the closest the nearest from here. they're not only exercises happening, a dis air feel, but they're training grounds around his whole area. this whole stretch in the southern part of bella, luce and of course for bella. it's a for russia. i have to say, it's quite easy to use this country right now. because alex,
9:14 pm
on the look shank guys looked to, well, let me put in for help since he became a very isolated and embattled leader. so russia is using these grounds here now to at least show this amount of forest that they're having. but we are speaking to villages also, they can't really feel that there's an imminent threat of war. but of course, there's a lot of anxiety, especially here as well. russian troops are also carrying out naval trails in the black sea near the border with ukraine. the ukrainian foreign ministry is formerly protesting against those exercises. it says the war games make navigating critical waterways virtually impossible. john stratford re for some car keith in eastern ukraine. joint russian embellish and military exercises, neither ukrainian border up to 30000 russian soldiers. and most of the better rouge an army taking part in the 10 days of drills including missile defense systems, tanks and fighter jets moscow has around a $100000.00 troops station close to
9:15 pm
u grains borders. ukraine invoked a clause from the so called 2011 vienna document, which is an international agreements on military transparency on which russia is a signatory of demanding moscow provide detailed information timeframes. the military maneuvers. several western countries, including france, launched fresh diplomatic efforts this week to persuade russia to back down. so far, those efforts have failed to bear. significant fruit. moscow says is demand that they never be further. nato expansion east, including ukraine, is being ignored. ukraine's foreign minister told al jazeera roches concerns are illegitimate, and ukraine would not concede to moscow's demands. but russia violated virtually every rule of international law related to securing the year. so now it wants to
9:16 pm
impose on others, the discussion that you guys are expanding nato. are doing something else, and that is the damage of my security. the last thing, the west of doing the response to that question using is actually to agreed to take this concern seriously. instead, it's us, ukraine and other countries who are suffering from russia as actions should ask them a question. well, how will you rush ensure your security without inflicting damage on the secure, on our security new satellite images published by a private u. s. company. show what it says is new russian military deployment, new ukraine's border. more nato troops and weapons are being sent to bolster the alliances eastern flank. in a rare press conference in the russian bank,
9:17 pm
separatist held territory, the leader of the self declared the nets, people's republic accused ukraine of planning a military solution. so the crisis something ukraine denies me. i do not rule out that ukraine can attack at any time. they have everything ready, the concentration of forces and capabilities allows them to do it at any moment. as soon as there is a political decision, russia says it has no intention of invading ukraine, but it says it will be forced to take on specified military technical action if it's de mom's or not met moscow's main jamal and is the ukraine never becomes a nitro member, and that's something that the u. s. and it's nato allies say, is a non starter diplomatic approach to diffuse. the crisis. continue to foil, jaw stratford. al jazeera, called give you the new chrome phantom moorehead on this sanchez hearing is our

they have brought children, and another protest has propped up as cropped up the close by as well, a leading to a major highway which is part of the trans canada highway. so all the trucks to that bring goods back and forth across the ambassador bridge into canada and out of canada, use that highway to get to the, to other parts of ontario and even the rest of canada. so with protesters ah, blocking that as well. it's created another in another situation, right? so the protests seemed to be spreading. i'd tell us more about who's been, who's been protesting and what's motivating this really did do they have much support among canadians. it, it appears that there's a, it's a very small group. if you take the, the number of people who are vaccinated, the number of people who have not joined these protests that these protests began about 3 weeks ago. and they came in response to the federal requirement that all long haul truckers who bring goods back and forth across the canadian

9:22 pm
on the table as far as dealing with the protesters. ah, what he meant by that is not clear. he did, he did refer to not wanting to say more because of fears of violence. ah, he's been in contact with the us. i mean, washington has taken notice. so he's been in contact with the president, biting out off the u. s. has offered help, but what kind of help we don't know, dan, thank you so much for talking to us about this dan cap and chuck i jen, lisa independent journalist joining us there from toronto. thank you very much for your time. you're welcome. meanwhile, police in france have broken up a convoy of vehicles in paris that tried to block traffic in protests against pandemic restrictions. their thousands of demonstrators from across the country had made their way to the city, inspired by truck drivers that shut down canada's capital. he fuck a report. like a company of car horns has demonstrates his opposing coven 19 restrictions converge on the most famous street in paris. oh, they seem spied by
