12:00 am
gates, how breakfast the pandemic and changing tastes are causing the great british curry crisis. the african union halted 35th ordinary session, the 1st with israel as an observer state, with several nations campaigning against israel status and pressing issues across the continent. there is much to disgust february on her jazeera. ah, this is al jazeera. ah, hello, i'm sorry, i'm noisy. welcome to the news, our life from london coming up in the next 60 minutes. responding to russia, security demands over ukraine. the u. s. and nato deliver their proposals to moscow . a di, are you an assessment of the situation in afghanistan, a country where ki services are in, collapse, millions and living in fear. an assassination attempt and
12:01 am
a military takeover. west african leaders call an emergency meeting over between of classes, latest coo and confirmation that you are supreme court. justice stephen breyer will retire, setting up a political showdown over who will replace him. and i am he to stay with him dough with his sports news? 7 times african charm, hymns, egypt to on their way to the african help of nations, quarter finals of the bahamas fella. holy is nerve the slot, whom the winning penalty take against either e post. ah hello and welcome to the news out. united states and nato have delivered written responses to moscow. security demands over ukraine. fears over a potential russian invasion of ukraine has prompted one of the biggest mobilizations of western forces in europe. russia has amassed a 100000 troops near the border. was you crying?
12:02 am
and says it's ready to retaliate. if the west does not provide constructive on says you are such as a antony. lincoln's as the response was coordinated with key f and also european allies and made no concessions to the main demand that ukraine be bought from joining nato. our response to russia reflects what i said in keith, berlin, and geneva. last week. we're open to dialogue. we prefer diplomacy and we're prepared to move forward, where there is the possibility of communication cooperation. if russia escalates its progression towards ukraine, stops the inflammatory rhetoric and approaches, discussions about the future security in europe. in a spirit of reciprocity, our responses were fully coordinated with ukraine and our european allies and partners with whom we've been consulting continuously for weeks. we sought their input and incorporated into the file version delivered to moscow a da 0, his dosage, a bari is in the russian capital moscow and has more on this now well,
12:03 am
and they will take some time to consider all options and we'd heard from the russian foreign minister, earlier when he was briefing the do more here, that is the legislative body about where things stand and according to surgery, laughter off of the russians are also prepared to respond in any way they can. and all options for them are on the table. and they were waiting for this response, which came by the u. s. ambassador to this country, john sullivan, who went in to the foreign ministry this evening. and he was in there for about 30 minutes. and then he left without addressing any of the questions from reporters outside the foreign ministry. but the russians are likely to study the response from the americans, which will not be made public at the request of the us government. the surgeon lover had said that last week at the meeting in geneva with us secretary of state entity, blink. and that's it was up to the americans whether not to make public their answers and it would be up to them to the side. and it appears as the u. s.
12:04 am
secretary of state has said that they will now choose not to release the answers publicly because they believe they want to give diplomacy a chance. the russians have said that if they're not satisfied with the response, as they receive from the americans in nato, they will study their options and they will pursue whatever path is in their best interests. as get the view now from washington with rosalind jordan. they are such true, say, antony, blinkin cold. this is serious diplomatic. off as it was described, but without addressing russia's key demand. what does he hope to achieve? well, and when it comes to the things that russia is demanding, notably, not allowing ukraine or other eastern european countries join nato, as well as a calling into question. whether nato of forces should be deployed as far to the east, as they currently are deployed. of the a bind administration has said repeatedly,
12:05 am
those are non starters. they're not going to change the posture of nato forces, including us troops of around the continent, and that it's up to individual countries to decide whether they're going to pursue membership in nato. that to the military alliance has an open door policy. so he's not, you know, ignoring it. the question mr. blankets, position is that the u. s. has repeatedly answer those questions now in terms of what antony lincoln was trying to do during his a press. a briefing on wednesday was to underscore that there are areas where the u . s. and other western countries are willing to engage with russia, where they believe that russia does have valid security concerns. and that by talking they can address those issues in a way that satisfies everyone sitting at the table. now, the secretary of state also said, now that of the several pages of
12:06 am
a response to russia's demands have been delivered. that it's really now up to moscow to come back and to say what the americans, hope lust keep caitlin. keep talking. let's keep engaging and try to turn down the attention that has grown. ideally the u. s. would like to among other things. see the some 100000 us troops who have been moved to the border with ukraine on its eastern flank, returned to barracks. but clearly that is something that won't be happening right away. thanks very much holding jordan with the latest that from washington. so join me now is max bergman. a senior fellow at the center for american progress also served as a top adviser in the state department during the brack, a bomber administration working on ukrainian security assistant efforts, joins us now live from washington also. so how might the kremlin respond to washington's rejection of its core demands?
12:07 am
well, i think it remains to be seen. i think no one is very optimistic, that the diplomatic track will be picked up by russia. because i don't ultimately think that russia's issues are with nato military exercises or. ready with the posture of nato, i think the u. s. has done a very smart thing to say, like what russia, if your concerns are really are the security or security issues such as are military exercises or the various arms sales that we have done in our, in arms transfers to ukraine. we can talk about that because we have a long history of talking about that with the russians and the service since the cold war period of trying to create strategic stability. but i think at the heart of this, i think is about russia wanting to control ukraine in what the us is not going to do is to sort of make certain ridiculous se to ridiculous demands such as ensuring that that ukraine will never be part of nato
12:08 am
frankly, rash already have sort of a detail about that because russia has occupied part of ukraine, and i don't think there's any possible way that ukraine becomes part of nato, as long as the russian forces are still on korean territory. so i think what we're really talking about is the russians looking for reasons to walk away from talks to justify potential invasion. and so that's why i think everyone in washington is very much on edge right now. but they could have already done that. they seem to want to continue with their diplomatic track for now it's not been exhausted. well, we'll see. i mean, i think there will continue to be talks, but i think it looks like russian forces are, are in continue to be bolstered. and i think in the next month we're coming weeks will be the kind of real danger zone for potential for potential military invasion . and i think the hope is that the russians take the take up the offer,
12:09 am
put forward by secretary lincoln by the united states in my need him to engage in serious talks. i think that sparks that emerged in many ways are at the prompting of the last, not so much russia, russia put forth ridiculous demands. and i think what's interesting here is the russian put forth or demands publicly to the entire world. i think in hopes that they would be seen as, as in would be rejected. i think it's signal that the us is in the west are keeping the letter that we sent to russia private. because we want to engage in serious diplomacy, which can only be done behind closed doors, not through not, not in front of the cameras. how might a package of aggressive economic sanctions affect russian calculations and the possibility of president putin being personally targeted? but i think this has a real deterrent effect,
12:10 am
if not it should because my guess is what one who has calculated is that the us response will not be that significant. but if it russia and ukraine, it will be hit by some sanctions. and then after a year or so, it goes by the sanctions will fade in effectiveness. and then, and then they'll be a reproach bond between the western russia and that russia will sort of have gotten away with it. but i didn't. what the binding administration has signaled instead of weak story after a week story about what it would do in response to russia invasion has ruthie sent a signal that this will be kept catastrophe for the kremlin, for the russian people, for russia, if it were to invade ukraine in the u. s. has demonstrated the tools that it has its disposal to cause, inflict serious damage on the russian economy. so this has to be taken very seriously. and my guess is, is it will be taken seriously. but i hear that the russians may have back
12:11 am
themselves into a corner here, where they don't really know how to back down from, from this crisis. because the diplomacy that is offer is very practical. how forward, but it's not going to deliver that kind of absurd. maxwell is the maximum of demands of the russians up at for the next one. thank you very much. thank you. tens of thousands of crime in ta tars have fled since russia annex the peninsula. 80 years ago. and now many are afraid. the conflict between russia and ukraine would force them to move again. there is charles stratford reports from 7 ukraine. volunteers load cold give pension is struggling to stay warm, ukraine's brutal winter cold. the men of charters, turkish ethnic group, who have lived in crimea, the centuries. tens of thousands left when russian troops illegally annexed the peninsula in 2014,
12:12 am
worried about increasing tension between ukraine and russia. was re especially worried about have women, children, and elderly. there is a war, because we have no way to take them. we try to provide for them and reassure them as much as we can and the men had delivered cold to 81 year old as ema, she, her family and an estimated $190000.00 soldiers were deported for crimea during stallings purges of his opponents. and 944. put in claims. i know. yeah, but i want to ask president, put in, why do you need to occupy this for land? how can you take over our land and tremendous like these shots that those are for the round 80 percent of this town have correctional views show. there is no open animosity between austin, but you can sense it. camilla is just a few kilometers across the water behind me. now, since russia illegally annexed the peninsular in 2014 is estimated that as many as
12:13 am
140000 ukrainians have left. many of them ethnic crimean tosses. who say they fled persecution in their ancestral land. in the market, no one would talk to his own camera about their support for russia. but this lady said she felt great affiliation in the country, language and culture. if people chose climbing to because of russia. and let them be. the mosque was built in 2002 for the tartar community on side men gather for prez. hussain talk, lou says he will never except a russian rule in crimea. or do you see people treat steep the siege when russia annex crimea between 10 to 40000 tortoise fled because of political and religious pressure on the lack of freedom of speech. and then they left behind their homes and property. and i had to start life again from that summer, not only taught us, but all ukrainians live in perpetual uncertainty. those every one is talking about
12:14 am
potential role. as eva says, she isn't strong enough to visit family who still live in crimea, that she fears for both ukrainians and russians. if a solution to the crisis between the 2 countries isn't found. charles robert al jazeera mobile, alixia co, southern ukraine. watching that he is our life from london still had on the program . far from home and froze into the core. heavy snow makes life even more miserable for millions of display syrians, despite threats of detention and deportation. refugees continue risking everything to seek asylum in poland. and at fif is present sparks outrage with his latest comments about a wild come ah,
12:15 am
life in afghan astonished become a frozen hell un secretary general has warned. antonio guitarist says the humanitarian crisis is left the country hanging by a thread with education and other social services. on the brink of collapse, while un special envoy to afghanistan says it appears that taliban is again, using fear to control the population. are diplomatic, added to james bay's house more now from the un this meeting called by the current president of the security council, norway, it's prime minister. the owners, ga store, is here in new york for the meeting, sharing the meeting. he told me that the world needed to pay more attention, perhaps, currently distracted by the news from russia and ukraine. because there is the real fear of a looming humanitarian crisis. the un secretary general says the countries hanging by a thread, he said daily life has become a frozen hell. he says over half of all afghans facing extreme levels of hunger, they say it's more than the humanitarian problem. the whole economy of afghanistan
12:16 am
is collapsing. they need to get liquidity into the economy and there's pressure, i think behind the scenes on the americans to try and unsafe and freeze some of those funds. the taliban were recently or delegation of the tunnel by more recent recently and also low where they had discussions with the international community also with civil society representatives of the you and special representative in cobbled. deborah alon said that was good news, but she said there was some very worrying news as well. let me quote her, she says on the ground as compelling evidence of an emerging environment of intimidation and the deterioration of human rights. she says that the taliban may be thinking that they can control the population by fear rather than understanding and responding to its needs. she also said there are increased reports of killings and enforced detention and disappearances. and she says she was particularly concerned about recent disappearances of female activists. and she urged the
12:17 am
taliban to take action. 20th now as christian gibson from the norwegian refugee council, he has just returned from 3 weeks and afghan asked on. so can i start by asking you what you saw on your recent trip and what people have told you? yes, i saw humanitarian situations, the dis getting more and more desperate. we have 1st, we just heard a bitterly cold winter. we have more than half the population starving, and we have an economy in free fall. so i visits camps for internally displaced people in different locations throughout afghanistan. and they told me that their surviving on small pieces of bread that one family father told me he had bought some wheat flour. he mixed with water. that was all his family got that day. and is that the stories were here again and again, i'm visited a camp there whether just told me that 2 children had just died or freezing to
12:18 am
death the night before this situation. and at the same time unitarian organizations such as my own, that which i refer to counsel, we cannot scale up to meet the needs because we simply don't have funds available to do our work. we were hearing from you and such a general early iran and he expressed deep concern at reports of abductions of women activists has the i see, i see had discussions about come on a per jani, per wanna, abraham kell and ali as easy among others. so our focus is the humanitarian situation. right now, our focus is to save lives because lives at risk throughout afghanistan. the key prior to here is to get funds into the country because the winter is very harsh now
12:19 am
as we just heard. so there economy needs to be back on track at both for the humanitarian assistance, but also for a normal afghans. so they can get their salaries paid so that they can get people into their shops and they can pay off their loans and pay their, their rents. these are the main concerns right now. do you think it's a critical moment because of the desperate humanitarian situation that in terms of ab communication and negotiations with the taliban, that that perhaps this is an opportunity to encourage other things at the same time in terms of education and rights for all so we are running an education programs in different provinces and afghanistan. and
12:20 am
these are actually ongoing. these are one of the few activities that are still going on. this is very important. and for us it's, it's absolutely a condition that both girls and boys are tending these activities. and other than that, i would say it's very important to stress that for us the 8 is not conditional. it's based on humanitarian principles. that means that the ones that are in the most need that get their assistance 1st that that's our produce. and that's also what we are communicating to the properties. indeed, it is a desperate situation and there is a need for urgent action in the country. that's not so much conditional, but just encourage a concrete plan of action on education, employment, and human rights is what i meant. yes, as, as i said before, and i think it what we need,
12:21 am
1st and foremost to save lives is to get their economy up and running. so apart from asking conditions from the, the de facto authorities, we also need to ask the international community to find practical solutions. because right now the sanctions means that there's almost no money getting into the country. so when it's then slash of the community to tell the international banks that these are the assurances you need so you can start transferring the humanitarian money. so we also need to get the afghan banks a national bank up and running because as it is now, there's simply too little money in circulation. so to cut their communities and the whole country is simply not functioning right now. so these are very important priorities that needs to be fixed right now. well, thank you very much. christian. yep. send for telling us more about your recent
12:22 am
trips, the country and, and the desperate situation there. and the challenges facing people and other stories of following kurdish lead for saying they've taken full control of the prison facility. they've been besieged by iceland, northeast and syria. fighting broke out the jail in the city of half the car on thursday. when i saw mounted a bit to free thousands of it's fighters in almost a week of fighting over control of the facility, about 200 inmates and 27 kurdish fighters were killed, spokesman for the syrian democratic forces says that ice will fight as of surrendered, ending the situation now unicef also voice concern about a $150.00 children and mine is detained at the jail. st had reports of fatalities, man, a tearing groups, cool for immediate access to be granted to the area. meanwhile, nearly 3000000 people displaced, northwest in syria. our risk of exposure is that camps a batter by freezing whether heavy snow is destroy tense and preventing crucial
12:23 am
humanitarian 8 deliveries. the united nations is appealed for help. as i beg, has more a city of tense. this is life for around 250000 syrians force from their homes by the civil war. and now after 10 years of continued conflict, snow and rain is their latest enemy. her is her. so a lot of the very cold weather, the massive volume snow and the bad condition of the camp have led to the tents, damages every way. we also allah and we urge those who are willing to help do the best for us. we don't have firewood and there is no heating. we burned some shoes and clothes just to offer some heat to the children and thought. traveling to the area was already difficult. the snow has made it near impossible. agencies are struggling to get access tent have collapsed under the weight of the snow. the few that do have shovels do what they can. the rest are left to move snow with the
12:24 am
hands in freezing temperature. on the whole camp does not have bread, we call upon the humanitarian organization and all the authorities concerned to urgently help the camp and its residence. the un says more needs to be done, but for the people here they need help. now, we won't put up with that with them. the whole camp is in real danger and we don't know what to do. we have spent the last 70 years intense and displace caps. they can't find us a flat. the camp, inadequate. at the best of times. the snow is only adding to the misery he's people face. i said bake jazeera the military current became faso is due to be discussed at an emergency meeting of west african leaders on friday. the un and us are demanding the immediate release of the post president rock for a coolie to say they seize power because of the government failure to stop attack my arm groups linked to al qaeda and iso nicholas hack is falling development for
12:25 am
us from luck. a do incentives this report. there is kind of this unusual, a recall in the city i've been here before. usually at this time of the hour, the streets would be bustling with activity. i want to show you right behind me. i'm just going to step away from there, shot further in the distance is actually the presidential palace no longer in the hands of the president and security guards, but now it's burkina faso special forces that they've set up a checkpoint that we can't go any further. now that's no longer at the center of power for this country. the decision making now is happening in downtown. why do go in one of those camps where the new strong men of the country, the tenant colonel finally amoeba? earlier today met with members of a hawk cowboy. the idea here is to try to put in place as quickly as possible before friday's meeting of the west african heads of state, some sort of national unity government to show that they have some sort of
12:26 am
legitimacy here since the coo earlier this week. well, medical workers in sierra leone saying they're now better equipped should there be another outbreak of ebola blood clotting virus killed 4000 people there. 8 years ago. many others died as well, a neighboring countries as an interest reports. now it bothers survivors, and doctors say they've learned lessons from that disaster. mama most that i can't remember the last time the association for border survivors of which is secretary carried out a campaign to educate the public about the virus funding has dried up and just looking after themselves and their families is quite a struggle. but this is not the only problem survivors like home at phase sigma. the only able us of, i was, i mean, some of them the be living with them because of the support you know, ability rise money bomb. well, you know, that will also apply bernardez know supply,
12:27 am
so they look at them new cut and if really more than 26000 people were infected by abolla after the 1st case was reported in west africa in 2014 and more than 11000 people died in 3, west african countries, many of the 4000 people who died of borlin saroyan are buried here. it is on the vidas remains of right. but because of past experiences in dealing with the disease, experts say medics are better equipped and prepared for any outbreak. at a military facility in freetown is sarah leon's, foster bowler response center, hundreds of people were treated here. but in the absence of new cases, the center now handles other infectious diseases including covered 19 colonel stevens. the valley commander of the country's army medical corps was part of the bowler response team eighty's ago. when on our to those not to walk in,
12:28 am
if we don't know what walks. and then i think when a mix up was issued done before. however, i don't think we're out of the woods during happened to make big investments were made in facilities and equipment to fight the virus. but officials say most can't be used now. so all those in floss, loc johnny saw, sees the equipment detail he did, and then where naughty was, will plug into all those facilities during the covey the 19 pandemic. despite that, he says the experience gained during a bullet potomac has helped with the covet 19 response. so vulnerable group, but mohammed remains concerned. many saldonya's still wouldn't know how to protect themselves from the bowler that he fears and outbreak now could cause as much damage as in 2014 or even more. ahmed edris al jazeera waterloo steadily on.

12:30 am
that's the picture and take it on tuesday off. so that fell on monday in athens says you can see pretty bad scene, but it's improved now. the sunny's i tempted to slowly rising but not much is still wearable way below where it should be in the balkans and then the snow coming to replace what has been gray, foggy weather for a good part of germany. austria and better route, for example, but it stays cold and that cold spreads eastwards, not as a rule cold, a snowy cold, in this case, proper when to see them to the risen in london and paris, cuz the winds picked up and churned up the weather. they're not bad to be honest, dan, in spain and portugal where sun is predominant in give it like to snow for 3 days, a hint of sunshine, no more than that at about one degrees. so this is proper continuous wintery weather. the code is leaked further south as you know, through good part of egypt and libya, and enhanced the ha mattson blowing dust everywhere. ah,
12:31 am
this story of zimbabwe, in her words, history is always told from the perspective of the great man, whether it's david livingston, robot, mal gandy. my responsibility is to tell, is involved when story in a way that it hasn't really been told before. the ordinary everyday life or is involved with is the people i'm writing about patina, kappa, out of darkness. my zimbabwe on al jazeera got on one of the fastest growing nations in the world. news wanted needed to oakland and development school international shipping company to become a key, middle east and trade and wanting skillfully my 3 key areas of develop who filling up from it. so connecting the world, connecting the future,
12:32 am
won the cost cutters gateway to whoa trade. lou ah ah, ah, welcome back. look at the main stories now. united states and nato delivered written responses to russia, security demands of the ukraine sector. you say, anthony lincoln says the response made no concessions to the main demand that ukraine be bought from joining nato. moscow says it's ready to retaliate. if the west is not provide constructive on says, life in afghanistan has become a frozen hel, according to the un secretary general. attorney. good terrace is one. the humanitarian crisis left the country hanging by a thread with education of
12:33 am
a social services and collapse. kurdish that forces say they've taken full control of a prison facility that have been besieged by iceland, northeast, and syria. fighting broke out at the jail in the city of ha sikka on thursday. about $200.00 inmates and $27.00 kurdish fighters were killed. u. s. supreme court justice stephen breyer will retire at the end of his current tom. briar is one of 3 remaining liberal justices in the conservative majority court. he's 83 years old. his retirement will give president joe biden, his 1st chance to nominate a new liberal judge to the country's highest judicial body. while i'm fisher joins us live now from washington and allan talk us through the significance of this and the reaction that while everyone's getting very excited about in washington as washington does. but the one guy who isn't confirming that this is happening is actually justice stephen breyer. though the white house was asked about at the see any announcement has got to come from
12:34 am
a supreme court just as some were expecting it to happen. at some point on thursday, and certainly what we got from the leader of the democrats in the senate. chuck schumer is an acknowledgment that he was going to move very quickly on the appointment as stephen breyer was appointed by bill clinton. as you see, he votes are almost exclusively with the liberal majority. there was a concern about brear seat suddenly disappearing because if you move towards the mid term elections and the republicans when control of the senate, even if joe biden work to get a pick for the supreme court, it's unlikely it would get through even 2 years from a presidential election, mitch mcconnell said he simply wouldn't bring it up for a vote. so that would mean that the, the majority on the supreme court would stay a conservative majority and quite a big one at that. now joe biden would like to get
12:35 am
a supreme court nominee. he would like to be able to push that through. and what they don't want to happen is what happened with ruth bader ginsburg, of course, who died? well, she was still a supreme court justice at barack obama should have been allowed to, to make that switch to the appointment just it was taken over by donald trump. he put another conservative on the court and that gave the, the court a big conservative majority. so how quickly can this get done? well, in the past, the nomination and confirmation not process normally takes somewhere in the region of 2 or 3 months. but of course, if you remember the person that replaced with bader ginsburg, amy courtney, but that was all done in 6 weeks because we were very close to a presidential election. fact, the democrats say that shouldn't happened in such a short time skill, but it still got pushed through. so we're looking again at a short time scale here. the name that will be picked as likely to be an african
12:36 am
american female joe biden made that pledge on the campaign trail. a lot of people think that helped to swing a lot of black votes behind him, and he will follow through on that pledge. there are 2 living candidates, someone who sits on the appeals court in washington, someone who sits on the appeals court in california. but you can imagine that they are very keen to get this done very quickly. the only thing that is the snag at the moment of course, is that stephen bryer hasn't said he is going. he will. he will almost certainly acknowledge that he wants to go so that there remains a strong, liberal voice on the supreme court. but for the moment, he stays a justice and will steer justice to the end of his term, then the battle to replace them or begin in earnest. thank you very much. and fisher washington. in a van there al jazeera reported on the case of one young kurdish 9, it's a vi freezing temperatures in the forest between poland and mattress. he was one of 1000 till arrived on board as a leaving they could find
12:37 am
a better life that they met a tough response from polish authorities. our correspond jonah had returned to the border to find him and hear his story. lose you away in these woodson, you could be wandering for days, yet even deep winter doesn't discourage them. border god video is said to show some of the dozens of attempts still being made each day to cross from betel ross into poland and the european union. for the few that make it an unpleasant welcome awaits indefinite detention in crowded, militarized barracks with bod, windows and limited access to the outside world. less asylum seekers than prisoners and a breach of international law can pick a camp is like a prison and does not represent europe. most of the people here came from that countries because of the pain. they shouldn't be abused. the 2nd time,
12:38 am
it's like torture. i felt like that was the voice of alarmed ahmed, hama, a kurdish refugee who had hoped to reach his mother living in the u. k. we 1st met her land, you know, polish hospital in december, in obvious distress, having been rescued in the forest and said he was taken away shortly afterwards by the border gods, despite pleased by human rights activist, monica, to full cosca, that he be given mental health support alarmed was detained his laptops across nearly a 2nd. me sunday in the middle. the me very upset to be in a place like that. she doesn't fully understand it. he knows that he cross the border illegally when he doesn't understand why he finds himself in conditions like that book on up to 1800 detained asylum seekers. in 8 camps of launched hunger strikes and sometimes violent protests over conditions. the polish government says
12:39 am
