8:03 pm
which unlike other nato countries, has refused to send arms to ukraine for fear provoking, russia continues to hold out hope i'm not annoyed less yes, give me want to make clear that there is a red line here, and this is the sovereignty of ukraine. we are preparing our response with all necessary measures and toughness, but we are also simultaneously working for dialogue and for the process. not only to be back at the table, but to stay there. on tish mission designs, orlando at all heard sublime german chancellor, olaf shots will travel to moscow on tuesday to meet with fulton, one little bother hoffman. we have to be rid amid the exodus from his country. ukrainian president followed me as the landscape is appealing for calm. we have a lot of information because we are on these borders. it's our borders. it's our territory. you, you know, i have to speak with our people like our unit for,
8:04 pm
you know, like, like president and said, people throughs. and the tools that we have different information. and now the best friend for enemies that hispanic in our country. his words, a reminder that until the 1st shot is fired and anger, a fragile piece prevails. let's bring in the w as in washington, bureau chief in as all hello tnf. and so just a short time ago, you as president joe biden, and his russian counterpart vladimir putin spoke on the phone that call was nearly an hour long one. can you tell us about their conversation verbally? another we hear that the rhetoric has basically not changed in the presidential by the repeat of the message he has sent out before he was put in that and ukraine attack would bring her and i, i caught that here
8:05 pm
a swift and decisive response. he said that in case of an invasion, russia would be hit very hard by sanctions sanctions, which also would target specifically the ali galks and also proteins, personal assets. so 2 days, phone call was another sign. the president biden is willing to play hardball. he wouldn't, and at the same time in, as we've heard, russia accused the united states and also other western countries of spreading what it calls dis information. and it says it's not planning to invade ukraine, but you as security officials had other assessments of that. what have they been saying? well, the 1st week to move a war or a military upload conflict is always the truth. so this definitely is also an info war. so we got information from both sides and they definitely both sides want to shape kind of the political discourse. but we see pictures and we have information

from many different services that president putin is increasing the number of military around the ukranian border. and as we just heard from a secretary of state lincoln, the possibility is or seems to be very real that an invasion might happen every day . you know, well, we also knew that putin spoke on the phone to the french president, a minimum cron today. when we're looking at the, as sort of high stakes diplomacy going on, how important our talks with european leaders for russia compared to these talks with the us while, you know, is these 2 people of a president biden, and a president, putin, me to the most powerful military countries sit on a table and i think we all agree on that. there is always hope as long as people
8:07 pm
talk with each other. they don't should at each other. having that said this whole a diplomacy here is very, very closely coordinated. european leaders, germany's chance love shoals included, seemed to take a little bit of a different stanlin, a president biden. i think it's fair to say that biden is playing a little bit of a bed copier and shaw shawls who is struggling to moscow and she was staying. they manuel mccall, the president from france, or rather trying to keep the diplomatic channels open. so i think every single telephone call, every single a meeting with president putin matters, but again, no doubt, if a joe biden and put in talk with each other, the most powerful military forces are sitting at one table or at least talking at the same time with each other definitely is in as pull reporting for us from
