all sides. we both agree including bishop, for russia in our view. today, the chancellors ghost are close cooperation. the rob strong prize package of sanctions that are, are clearly demonstrate international resolve and impose swift and severe consequences if russia violate ukraine sovereignty and is territorial integrity. one of the biggest targets for sanctions is the nord stream to pipeline project, to bring gas from russia to germany. biden said in clear terms, he would shut it down if russia invades. but shouts made no such guarantee, vowing only a unified response. this is victor that it's important that all allies, the u. s. and germany, the transatlantic partnership between the u. s. and europe, nato of all say the same thing or part in the speak with one voice and do things together. sorry, we made it very clear. if there is military aggression against ukraine,
it will result in severe consequences that we agreed upon together of severe sanctions that we worked on together. so there will be a high price for russia. there were crossed and frivolous land harbor, with at least 100000 russian troops massed along ukraine's border. berlin has faced international criticism for its cautious response. unlike some of its nate, her allies, germany has rolled out sending weapons to ukraine. meanwhile, in moscow, french president emanuel makram focused on de escalation, as it rushes, vladimir putin reiterated his demands for nato to stay out of the region, but said he was willing to compromise. he were deeply luxury and a number of ma, crohn's ideas and proposals which are probably too early to speak about. i consider quite possible to use and forming the basis of or further joint steps, the leisure measure famous. my struggle with the 3 as far as we are concerned,

reassured by chance specials at all today? well, it really the headlines this morning in the last the days weren't really her nicer when it comes to germany and the new chancellor. big questions were risen and it's quite interesting. during the trump years, it was germany which constantly asked how reliable is the united states and now it's the other way round. i, i doubted that this press conference today will really, i kind of re ensure the americans who are interested in the trans atlantic relationship that germany is there with a full support of the political agenda of the united states. right. let's talk about the controversial nodes for him to pipeline. that's the pipeline that will break, bring gas from russia directly to germany. president biden was very clear. he said, if russia invades there will be no nord stream to dead. chancellor shots is being
more vague when he's asked that question, can a can bite and promise that he will stop her nor swim to without germany being on board? well, that will be difficult, and biden is on a lot of pressure within his own country. because republicans and democrats really wanted, in the case of an, a russian invasion, one germany to stop or not through him too. and it was quite interesting to see that everyone, the american journalists and the german journalists who are larger, asked question in this crest press conference, stressed this very, a topic. and i, i mean, as you just said, all of sholtes didn't give any clear answer to this question if he would be willing to stop this pipeline. so on what biden could do. and he could put sanctions on germany if they would a continue to support the pipeline,
but that will deeply hurt the german american, the trans atlantic relationship. all rights that's ah, washington bureau chief in his paul, many thanks. german foreign minister and the lena bear book. meanwhile, has repeated warnings that a russian invasion of ukraine would trigger unprecedented sanctions during her visit to kiev. burbock also stressed the need to avoid further escalation. their book is scheduled to visit the front line between ukrainian forces and russian back separatists in the dumbass region on tuesday with gavin d. w correspondent, but he has burling, i is covering the story for us from the region he travel to east in ukraine. now areas controlled by russian back separatist. he sent us this report, the village school of ranita, the last village here on ukrainian control territory is close to the frontline. it

refuse it was worth a few years ago. we always did in the cellar when there was fighting it. sure. but that was then the shelly thick with the key to locally. but with the latest russian build up, a bigger escalation is on the table again. the coffee did on google. so when things come down, we bought a house here. oh chosen. but now we don't know what will happen with arch ukrainian control territory ends with the last houses of the village. behind the small river lies the demilitarized strip. the pedestrian bridge is the only link to the next village in the so called grey zone was short. the next village is not small. people come here every day to work. and kids go to school.
