a sham trial and more options hamper the search for survivors. after indonesia is largest, volcano kills 120 people. ah, no concerns of a new conflict in ukraine could come to a head on tuesday with a virtual summit between a u. s. and russian leaders dro biden's, promising at what a spokesman called enduring and meaningful costs. if the build up a russian troops east of ukraine's border results in an invasion, something his intelligence experts say could happen in just weeks is an opportunity for the president to underscore, of course u. s. concerns with russian military activities on the border with ukraine and reform, reaffirmed the united states support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the ukraine. it's also an opportunity to discuss a range of topics in the u. s. and russia relationship including strategic
10:02 pm
stability, cyber and regional issues. uh, but you can certainly expect that ah, the are our concerns about the military activities on the border will be a prominent part of the discussion. vladimir putin is denied that an invasion is planned, blaming nato, for the need to position his military as a boa against its expansion eastwards. he is likely to demand security guarantees from biden on 2 men lost, met face to face in geneva in june. when the disgust improving it diplomatic relations, but pushing the spokesmen admits relations is still pull her merger look good to them. we would need to discuss the agreements made in geneva and have a brief look at those implemented and ones which require further attention. of course, the bilateral relations will be discussed, which is still in the mental state cleaning, and ukraine's not all the european migrant crisis blamed on russia's ally banners. cyber attacks on companies and government agencies in the u. s. and the ever present issue of the 2 nations nuclear arsenals may also be on the agenda. was good
10:03 pm
. our white house correspondent, kimberly hallett. as secondary, what seems to be a lot on that could be on the agenda. what, what can we expect from this meeting tomorrow? we've got a sense of it from a senior administration official. the held a call with report is to kind of outline the goals and intents of the white house going into this call. and the main objective of this is that the united states wants to send a clear message that it is not seeking conflict. at the same time, should russia invade ukraine? the united states is prepared to impose what it calls meaningful consequences for harmful actions. in other words, what we expect that those actions up on the part of the united states could be a unit of actions would be financial sanctions. that would be so punishing would seek to isolate russia from the global financial system. now having said that, the united states is hoping to push the russian side to ward diplomatic
10:04 pm
talks along the minsk agreement. we should also point out that the united states is prepared to support discussions between nato and russia that would allow for the addressing of concerns on both sides. but the bottom line is, is that the united states is gravely concerned about u. s. intelligence reports that indicate that there is a build up of military by russia along the ukraine border. and even as russia has dismissed this, this fear mongering, the united states is intent on trying to push forward to try and resolve this concern through diplomatic channels. and it can be will come back in a 2nd, but also to the white house press briefing. that was the confirmation of a u. s. diplomatic boy. quarter of next his winter olympics in china, the measure will not affect u. s. athletes competing at the games in beijing, it's in process because china's human rights record, which one has already said it will retaliate. doorway scenario so. sure, you know,

yeah, i mean the winter olympics are held once every 4 years as a rare opportunity for athletes. the protectiveness of the beijing winter olympics will be athletes from various countries, not individual politicians. those politicians who clamor for a boycott for political self interest are just showing off and like things up, nobody cares whether they come or not. and they will have no influence on beijing success in hosting the winter olympics. many were sick of me. how did the white house press secretary justify this move? yeah, well this is something that's been called for by not only humans rights, human rights activists and even members of congress. but there's been great concern around the world about some of the human rights practices or lack thereof in china . and so this was an opportunity to kind of send a statement, so there has been a real pressure on the by to ministration to do a full boy caught of beijing 2022. and then what we've learned from the white house
10:06 pm
press secretary is the white house will allow us athletes to go and to participate starting in february, but they will have in place a diplomatic boycott. what does that mean? that means that no u. s. government officials will be present or any other sort of formal dignitaries . it's designed to put in place and send a very strong message to the chinese government. that it does not tolerate some of the practices that have been seen, particularly when it comes to chinese muslims. known as wiggers, now we should point out, we seen this type of boycott odd. actually it was a full boycott back in 1980. interestingly, when it involves russia, this is not going to be as punishing as that. instead it will be the diplomatic boycott that will allow the united states athletes to participate and the white house press secretary says that those athletes will have the white house's full support. kimberly, how can thank you very much indeed. well ahead of us,

a vantage point overlooking bish heck, it's easy to see why curtis don's capital is routinely ranked as the most polluted city in the world. air quality can be so poor. buildings don't disappear into the horizon, they disappear into a cloud of smoke chimney stacks at an aging power plant. the main culprits dystopian giants dominating the skyline over a modernizing city. all year round pumping smoke into the air and industrial waste into a nearby landfill. the carbon footprint of the cities combined heat and power plant is enormous. but it's still not enough. near the power plant, people are forced to burn cold to heat their homes in winter. you get to go all the way with we don't use much electricity. we fire the pit and because we light fires and others do the same, the air goes bad. if you wake up in the morning, everything is black around there. sing on tv every day, to save electricity,
10:29 pm
