ah, ah ah, this is d w. news line from berlin, a fresh bush for diplomacy to vent, a war and europe, affairs of a russian invasion and ukraine. the u. s. a. nato offer no concessions on last. dow security demand, instead, they once again propose a path out of the crisis through dialogue. also coming up, the u. k. holds its breath racing for the report on boris johnson's alleged lockdown parties, accusations repeated, lubricate or fueling calls for the prime minister resignation.
ah, i'm nichol for at least get to have you with us. a highly anticipated responds and a fairly predictable one about the us. the nato have formerly rejected moscow. sweeping security demands refusing, among other things to rule out of future nato membership for ukraine. instead, washington offer us what it calls a serious diplomatic path out of the crisis. in recent weeks, russia has mass 100000 troops near its border with ukraine staring fears of another invasion, military exercises on the russian side of the border exercises that ukrainians fear might soon to lethal. should tanks roll across on to their
territory. the u. s. and its nato allies have send weapons including anti tank missiles and bunker busting grenades. meant to help offset the huge russian advantage in troops and equipment. the aim is to make an invasion as costly as possible. there should be no doubt about our seriousness of purpose when it comes to diplomacy and were acting with equal focus and force to bolster eucharist offences and prepare a swift united response to for the russian aggression. more delivery is expected in the days to come. we provided more defensive security assistance to ukraine in the past year than in any previous year, but not everyone's on board with the effort to arm ukraine. reagan and bush former the present so disappointed by the german government. this position on bristol, some guy mammogram gemini,
is blocking the delivery of defense at west wilson from other countries to ukraine . ah, on the landed. so don't do kind estonia says it will send modern artillery. meanwhile, germany has refused to send weapons, but has announced it will contribute helmets and other vital but non lethal items. like i'd scans door, this is the, this is also a very clear signal that we stand by ukraine side kind of equipment that it's not weapons, but it helps it, it provides supports and we will continue to work in the same way in this conflict . we are working to resolve this conflict peacefully conflict mitten in our hopa, lately by late that that approach will be put to the test with many ukrainians already convinced the russians over the border are coming they way. any day now. join now by our washington correspondent oliver salad, who has been following events for us from their oliver high water report and had to
wait quite some time to get a response to his security demands. now he's gone it, but it's not been made public just yet. what more can you tell us about the content? the reply alice frightened collins secretary blinking talked about a serious diplomatic path forward to day. that document that was handed over to the russian side to day. that what we know is that it won't offer any concessions of nato in the united states until the russians and the u. s. wants russia to accept ne tools open door policy to move away from their maximum demands, which of course, are russia is claiming or calling for guarantees from the to that ukraine can join . the take of the western allies is that every country can choose with whom to align. and that certainly also applies to ukraine. the response also very likely to find areas of potential negotiation like missiles in europe, arms control,
also tactics to further reduce risk. so nothing of that really nicole is new. it's rather the reiteration of an old message. and that de escalation that the u. s. you just said and is offering a serious diplomatic path out of the crisis. they're saying, but they don't want to make any concession. so what could that path look like? what real leverage does the west have at this point? and we're hearing a lot of optimism on the diplomatic stage right now, but behind closed doors, and especially if you listen to members of the intelligence community, there's a lot of skepticism that, that this kind of negotiation that is a kind of a diplomacy. in fact would lead anywhere. so what we are hearing is that the situation is considered pretty serious and that diplomacy can only be one part of a successful approach. the leverage you were asking for, of course, our weapon deliveries for the ukraine. and in addition to the threat of sanctions,
and at the same time again, a to offer diplomacy to find a way out of these tensions here. so essentially, and we've heard that in the report earlier, nato is trying to put a high price tag on a potential invasion the secretary of state antony blank and has urged americans to leave the ukraine warning that an invasion could be imminent. now ukraine, on the other hand, is playing down the threat. what do you make of that? well, it is in one part, certainly an abundance of caution. the u. s. trying to avoid that images that we've seen just the summer. when kabul afghanistan fell to the taliban when there were no warnings issued early enough, and there were a lot of was a lot of last minute action desperate action and evacuations underway. so this time, of course they can sell they, they can say they warn, early enough, know, evacuation will be necessary and then therefore,
also avoiding the political damage back home for the biden administration. but it certainly also part of the rhetoric of showing that the united states is taking the threat posed by russia seriously. for the ukraine. on the other hand, that all sounds a little bit too much like giving up on them. and perhaps therefore they are reluctant in supporting that kind of rhetoric on re salad in washington, always good speaking to you. thank you so much. that sounds get you up to speed and some of the other stories making headlines today. u. s. supreme court justice stephen breyer has announced he will retire in june grayer, who is 83 is one of the liberal justices on the court. his stepping down gives president joe biden, an opportunity to nominate a replacement biden's predecessor donald trump secured the appointment of 3 supreme court justices. burkina faso is military who does met with members of the else did government. the former ministers have been ordered not to leave the
country without permission. the military seized power on monday and detain burkina . faso was democratically elected leader. the crew has been condemned internationally who publishing their report. german lawmakers have begun debating mandatory vaccines to slow the spread of the corona virus. chancellor auto shots back compulsory jobs or adults. but his coalition and the german public are divided over the proposal. now if you live in the u. s. borrowing money could soon become more expensive. that's the word from washington where the federal reserve has laid out plans for rolling back stimulus to find surging inflation. prices in the us are rising at rates not seen since the early 19 eighties, driven largely by the cost of energy and food. now the central bank is likely to
increase interest rates and wind down the asset purchasing program that could help slow down inflation, which is running at its fastest rate in for decades. fed chairman jerome powell addressed fears that a rate hike would heard the job market. i think there's quite a bit of room to raise interest rates without reading the labor market. this is by so many measures historically tight labor market record levels of job openings of quits wages are moving up at the highest pace they have in decades. so how did those go down with the financial markets are corresponding against quantum half the details are well, it was actually pretty strong reaction initially before the meeting ended to blue chips were up by a good to 300 points, then we got the end of the fed meeting, nothing major happens, but then when jerome paul started to prep press conference,
that's when stock prices started to drop at some points. blue chips were down by about to 300 points. so that's a point swing of more than $600.00 points during the trading and session. i mean, if you look at it historically, when we are in phases of rising interest rate, that has often been a pretty good time for stocks. because the reason why the federal reserve is increasing rates is because the amount calling me is a strong and not a weak having that set. and that's going to be one of the big questions that the u . s. economy especially also the stock market's have been on the rise so strong in the past couple of months in the past, almost 2 years is mainly because of all the stimulus measures from the us government. and because of the ultra cheap monetary policy of the federal reserve, and if those 2 pillar, so to speak, are taken away,
we have to see how markets and how the economists react. maybe one final word we shouldn't forget. it's not due to the federal reserve to make their stock market happy, and they have to look for price stability and employment was yonce quarter reporting from new york city. the u. k is anxiously awaiting the publication of a report that cord spell the end of prime minister boris johnson's time in office. and internal investigation is looking into his participation in a series of parties that took place while millions in the country were enduring. corona, virus locked downs. on wednesday, johnson faced a fresh grilling and parliament over the scandal that's become known as party gate . but he once again refused to step down. i would prefer to be led by law. the law will he now rosara ango ran high in the yuki parliament as em piece
