10:03 pm
a glimmer of hope that come could still prevail after the kremlin kept opened the door for talks. despite the u. s. and nato rejecting its demands, shook aside so genial the clue as for the content of the document, there is a response which gives hope for the start of a serious conversation on secondary questions, boosted b. m. but in this documentable, well, there was no positive response to the main question of soup was it's usually new. another chance for diplomacy will come next month when russian french ukrainian and german delegates will need for talks in berlin. let's get some more perspective on the story. now we can speak to fyodor luciano if he's the editor in chief of the journal, russia in global affairs. and he is joining us from moscow. good evening to you. i want to start with getting your take on what we're seeing at the moment, because depending on who you ask vladimir putin as either on the verge of launching a full scale invasion of ukraine or he is saber rattling, to get some attention,
10:04 pm
respect to certain issues or something in between. so what did you see is happening at the moment? i say quite severe political and diplomatic crisis which has to do with russian deeper satisfaction with the security situation in europe at large as it emerged after the cold war and then continued and developed in the case after it has actually not so much to do with you for it in particular and looking for moscow, it's a little bit strange how much the west western commentators are obsessed with the union issue. because the ukraine is an element of this is a case vital case, but it's not about ukraine at all. it's about the general principle where the need to a has right to expand the indefinitely or not as for troops. yes, i think this is, as you said, a way to that the say bring americans to negotiation,
10:05 pm
the negotiating table. to be fair, mister, look, you know, if you said you don't understand why the west is perhaps obsessed with ukraine. there are more than 100000 russian troops massed at the ukrainian border with have you re arms as well and military artillery. so wouldn't that represent a threat to ukraine? it wouldn't represent a threat, probably. and of course, when you try to address such a big issue as to change to revise the european security order, you need to look very, very credible. but of course, in case the russia would really want to launch a war against ukraine. i'm not the military expert, but they guess that it would live differently. and probably not as demonstrative as
10:06 pm
it is. the operation would look like may be serial one or so. and this is something else, it's not about division miss. look out of, i want to ask you about this european security order that you're referencing here because we're talking about the fate and the futures of sovereign countries, including ukraine and other countries that were formerly part of a soviet union. so how was it possible to restructure this order without their consent? it's impossible to restructure without their consent. the question is to explain to all of us into the western us 2 countries, so called countries in between the former countries that so it means that you understand the reality in which you and the decision about security arrangements, which of course, each country has right to made make independently and the sovereign basis will
10:07 pm
have a certain consequences. if a powerful neighbors are not fine with certain consequences. what do you mean by that? in football, full neighbor is feels threatened by decision made by other countries. of course it will react what that meant. so we kind of, why would russia feel threatened here? i think this is a bar. it's not again, it's not the ball to clean only because nature, whatever we say or whatever i need. the officials are saying, nate is a military alliance, which more than doubled in the 30 years, which started to fight worse by the way, which was not the case during the cold war. and it's approaching crush and borders . my, you might say russia is paranoid, but if you just look at this object, the situation, i think a military in the world would feel
10:08 pm
a little bit concern. well, i should just point out that nato does like to emphasize the fact that it considers the self defensive military alliance, but we have run other time for the interview. and i want to thank you very much, mr. leanne of editor in chief of the journal. russia in global affairs, thanks so much for sharing your views with us. let's be up to speed now on some other stories making headlines. the liberal u. s. supreme court justice steven brier has formally announced his retirement presidential biden repeated his promise to nominate the 1st black woman to the court, to names topping the list of potential nominees, r u. s. court of appeals. judge cotton g brown, jackson and california supreme court justice leandra krueger. the use drug regulator has approve the use of pfizer is oral antiviral pill to treat coven 19. the european medical agency gave the green light to the drug packs low bid, which will be given to adults at risk of severe illness. thailand's navy says an
