12:05 am
and this unit was called unit 29155 unit 252-9155 is believed to have been responsible for a whole swathe of incidents across europe spanning many many years going back perhaps as part as long as a decade essentially taking out dirty work for the russian government up to and including what the russians call wet jobs in the senshi killings now these include a destabilization campaign in moldova an attempted coup in montenegro the poisoning of a ball carrier in arms dealer and now the czechs say they were behind the explosions of arms depos in the czech republic in 2014 most of that boils down to or is linked to you what the russians were trying to
12:06 am
stop happening around that time 2014 which was the supply of weaponry from countries like the czech republic to ukraine where of course at the time russia was backing separatists against the ukrainian military. on that point about ukraine people in the eastern part of the country worried about what the russian trip on the border of them. had reports now from the capital kiev there is growing concern about an escalation of hostilities. ukrainian soldiers on the front line on the highest level of alert since the signing of an often violated cease fire agreement with pro russian separatists 7 years ago russia says its deployment of an estimated 100000 soldiers and every weaponry to areas near the border with ukraine poses no threat ukrainian military say they are preparing for the worst.
12:07 am
i was mobilized and came back to the front line i believe this is a crucial moment to defend my country world leaders and nato have urged moscow to pull back its forces most of these houses were destroyed in fighting in 2015 around a 1000000 people live in a 10 kilometer wide so-called contact zone the stretches on both sides across the front line. oksana says she fled with her son genya from separatist controlled areas 2 years ago yet that's true. i have lived here since 2019 i used to live in our lives but i had to flee because of my political views it has been quiet these last 2 days but this is the 2nd night in a row my son wakes in the middle of the night screaming there is similar devastation in pro russia separatists control the areas and learn that. they have been shooting recently everyone waits but nobody knows how the negotiations will end. the leaders of ukraine russia germany and france the so-called normandy format
12:08 am
have repeatedly failed to find a political solution to the conflict. crane refuses russia's demand that it talk directly to pro moscow separatist leaders russia refuses to withdraw from crimea but you talk you part in 2014 and let's say political deadlock on many levels remain the breakdown in the current ceasefire was fairly predictable because the sides were negotiating in good faith it's not negotiating in good faith in it probably in about october and they reached the point where they were instead of trying to find common ground they were deliberately putting forth proposals that they knew would annoy the other side or that they knew would be nonstarters and once that starts to happen then you know that the breakdown of the ceasefire is only a small it's only a matter of time russia calls it a military exercise ukraine says it is a dangerous provocation after 7 years of failed peace negotiations the u.n.
12:09 am
says almost 3 and a half 1000000 people are an urgent need of humanitarian assistance and protection in eastern ukraine. but al-jazeera. well close allies of kremlin critic alexina volley of call for massive protests in the capital moscow and also in the city of st petersburg on wednesday as his health continues to deteriorate the mollies daughter dasher is calling on russia to allow her father medical treatment after doctors warn that he is now at risk of kidney failure he was jailed in february for violating parole conditions as a result of traveling to germany for treatment after being poisoned of all these doctors are saying they've again been denied access to that patient despite spending hours outside the prison we've got great she was going to break you but we came as doctors but it's cruel and monstrous to deny access to a dying patient we will call the medical unit and try to find out what's going on we'll keep trying but at the moment we've done everything we can we can't do
12:10 am
anything else. look for girls to go. through we tried to get in touch with the prisons authorities but nothing happened it's not clear what's happening alexis condition is not clear either the situation might be very serious and critical i think we need to take all the most used to resolve it for the sake of the mum. castro is in washington following this story for us so we've been hearing from president biden's national security adviser warning of consequences should know that in a valley die in russian custody or one of their options at this point. that's right mary i'm jake sullivan biden's national security advisor was on c.n.n. saying that if nevaeh dies in russian prison there will be consequences now he wouldn't go into specifics saying that he would not telegraph that publicly but that the u.s. government has been in direct talks with russian officials giving them this warning
12:11 am
that of all these fate while in russia and russia prison is russia's responsibility and that moscow would be held accountable by the international community now this rhetoric follows a week of tit for tat sanctions between the u.s. and russia with the u.s. announcing on thursday sanctions against 32 russian entities and the expulsion of 10 russian diplomats from washington well the next day moscow reciprocated by announcing the expulsion of 10 american diplomats u.s. president biden has denounced the treatment of no volley in russian prison saying it was unfair and totally inappropriate now the question is where the relation stand at this point whether or not a proposed summit between biden and president putin could still occur this summer somewhere in europe where that stands at this point is uncertain especially if not only does die in russian prison whether or not that summit would still move forward
12:12 am
all right thank you very much for that in washington or william cohen isn't. senior fellow at the global policy think tank rand corporation joins us now by skype from washington. the bind in the administration has already said they don't want to engage in escalatory cycle with moscow how difficult is it going to be to try to balance any kind of punitive action we've already had sanctions and expulsions this week with efforts to try and normalize the relationship. country problems need to be solved in the relationship before committing or must a foundational issue is russian aggression in ukraine then there is a lectionary ferrets in ice age cyber attacks on the united states most recently the novelli poisoning and then the new announcement that kurt strait will be closed of ukrainian shipping for 6 months. just seems that one after another
12:13 am
problem emerges if there is to be a summit it's probably a good idea because the tensions really or are too much now but ever been this website before billable hours or mikhail gorbachev came to power in the soviet union prison by dint of the right thing by proposing a summit but the risks and uncertainty for a summit are probably greater than 4 in a somber sense premier khrushchev walked out of one in paris in 1950 would present eisenhower why do you say that and is actually such a summit realistic is the kremlin likely to agree to a meeting like that after it's just had sanctions imposed on it. the foreign minister sergei lavrov has moscow reacted positively to president biden's proposal and from a criminal standpoint having such a summit helps legitimize the prestige of criminal rule if you will in
12:14 am
russia there's been a continued tightening of rule. of stronger limits on freedom of expression in russia i think this is posing a problem for russia in terms of which of them a city in the west and so somewhat like this could help. right but russia isn't going to accept any sort of into ferentz in internal matters when it comes to freedom of expression is freedom of speech or indeed. conditions around alexina valmy so how would the biden administration need to approach a meeting of this nature whereby the ministration will continue speaking out about the about it of course as your correspondent washer to pour it out if the valley were to die before a summer school or possible summit would be postponed or just were would take place both europeans and americans who are concerned about them about a situation where it seems that the kremlin may not understand how much concern
12:15 am
there is in the west about this well they may be listening to their own propaganda and thinking that this is not such an important issue but it is and of course the aggression in ukraine with the huge russian military buildup bringing forces from far away the euro mounts over to close to your credit it's not clear whether russia plans to extend its motor thrust into ukraine or not but if that were to happen there could also affect the prospects for some. prospect might in fact prospects for a summit but at shoni washington would washington. prioritize its long term relationship with moscow is it likely to escalate the situation of alexina valley or indeed tensions around ukraine in the crimea. yes so if the valley were to die europeans and americans would
12:16 am
have a strong reaction but if russia were to go into your crane with a deeper military thrusted more territory than they already control this could be a long term issue that would throw russia's relations with the west further off track the west nato has been providing a lot of military assistance to ukraine many forces are well prepared they would take much higher casualties from russian invading forces now than they were able to do in 2014 when they were caught unprepared i think the criminal think hard about the risk to us troops because a war in which russian troops die in ukraine won't be so popular at home. well thank you for sharing your views of this with him courtney joining us there at the global policy think tank rand corporation speaking to us from washington thank you . you're you're watching the news hour live from london still ahead.
