8:08 pm
a military hospital. it's not known why the helicopter crashed. an investigation is now underway. elizabeth brandon has more from the capital, new delhi. the indian air force confirmed the news of the death twisting with deep regret. it has been ascertained that general ben rollin mrs. medulla cut out, and 11 persons on board died and what they call the unfortunate accident. they were 14 people on board. the military helicopter 13, including beth and roberts wife, died, and one person is being treated and hospital. now the administrator of the district of middle good us and louder, where the crash took place has said that the identity of the body will have to be confirmed to dna testing because of the severe burns that they suffered. now this was a helicopter that was carrying robert and other senior officials from an air force base in su loued and nodded to a distance not so far away to the defense of college in wellington,
8:09 pm
for them to attend an event they. this is a very mountainous region with a loss of forest. now we can see from the pictures of the aftermath of the crash, the wreckage of the helicopter is completely inflamed. 63 year old. and that involves as the 1st person in india to hold the position of the chief of defense staff, he was the chief of the army staff. this was a newly created position. he assumed it in january 2020. and it was created to integrate the 3 armed forces in india, that is the army, the navy, and the air force. and he was the highest ranking cents official in india, communist and the name of the morte has cheered a meeting of his cabinet and defense minister raj. nothing is expected to address parliament about the crash on thursday morning. he was expected to do it late on wednesday. afternoon, but he instead went to the dallas residence and although an inquiry has been
8:10 pm
ordered by the indian air force, there already a lot of questions about how a helicopter carrying india's top defense official could have crashed. cho button says, sending us troops to defend ukraine from russia is not on the cards, but am at putin and joe biden spoke virtually on tuesday about russia's troop build up on the board with ukraine. that us won't. moscow would face severe sanctions if it invades russia. denies it, has any such plans, o biden? said the discussions between american and russian officials or ongoing deposited j dot bar or div diabetic god, god, that we hope. by friday, we're going to be able to, we're having readings at a higher level, not just with us, but more of our major day to ally and russia to discuss the future of russia is
8:11 pm
concerned relative to dado writ large. and whether or not we can work out heavy accommodation as it relates to read down the temperature along the front. kimberly hell catches been our life a washington dc in kimberly e. one might perhaps perceive that to be positive news coming from the president after that mammoth to our conversation with president putin and certainly shows a pathway forward. and that is what everyone was watching. the meeting between joe biden, vladimir putin, to see if there would be a pathway forward, or if there would be more escalation in terms of the potential confrontation. but what we know from the statements made by joe biden is he left the white house on his way to kansas city. missouri to town is infrastructure plan is in fact that he believes that this was a very direct conversation. that was very straightforward. one where he made clear that there would be severe consequences in the former financial sanctions if russia
8:12 pm
decided to invade ukraine. now, another point that the u. s. president made is that he said that there would be defensive capabilities. in addition, that would be supplied to ukraine. in other words, bolstering its ability to defend itself. but when asked directly by reporters whether or not he would send u. s. military troops, the president stopped short saying that is not on the table now. as you heard there, the u. s. president sees diplomacy not coming to blows as the way to move forward, and there is a tight time table in terms of getting that started. we also know that from the national security advisor james sullivan, that it is the view of the united states that the a russian leader has not yet decided whether or not to invade. even as u. s. intelligence indicates that there are plans in the works for a potential invasion by russia you frame as early as next year at one final know what we should point out. another point,
8:13 pm
the you as stressed in those discussions that took place on tuesday, is the fact that, well, russia was able to annex crimea in 2014. the united states has cautioned russia that if it were to invade ukraine, the punishments and consequences would go much further. than in 2014 can. how can that force i with it, they buy from washington dc function rushes. the president vladimir putin said anna that he hopes that the us on the crumbling can continue talking by the smith, as well. from oscar. vladimir putin described long and detailed talks. he said we're constructive and subjective. and he said the most important thing is that we can continue us dialogue. so it generally positive tone coming from the russian president who's been pushing his office in the coming, pushing for these talks of many weeks now. but he did still say that he believes nato is pursuing a clearly confrontational policy towards russia. he said,
8:14 pm
and book asked about if russia was planning to invade you crazy, cold, such a, just such a suggestion. provocative receipt, but it will literally be your new political. russia pursues peaceful foreign policy, but it has the right to insure it security in the mid to long term, as they have said already. and we are discussing this with all our partners, including my dial up partner yesterday, president biden. we can only be concerned about the perspective of ukraine's possible admission to nato, because this will undoubtedly be followed by the deployment there of appropriate military contention basis and weapons that threaten us. there is the normandy grouping. this is made up of france, germany, russia, and ukraine, and it was set up to try and bring an end to the fighting. it has fail so far to do that, but russia is now saying there's no reason why the us shouldn't join this group. and that seems to come off the back of
8:15 pm
a suggestion by the us secretary state antony lincoln last week. but washington try is offering it services to try and facilitate toward facilitate talks to end the fighting. we should also say that ukraine's foreign minister at the end of these talks between brought biden and putin. he described them a serving the per purpose of the terrans. and de escalation, while still here on out there a cause in malaysia palsy corruption conviction of the former lead and g resolved, but says he can stay out with jail for now. and why a large coal fired power plant to know the balls is being linked to the towns rise in deaths and departures. ah hello, good to see. here's your weather report for the middle east. we do have some activity
