3:02 pm
ah, on level hi, thank you so much for joining us. we open this broadcast with the growing tension between russia and western nations were increasingly the russian forces build up on the ukrainian border race fears of an imminent invasion. the u. s. and nato have rejected moscow security demands, including a ban on future nato membership for ukraine. and says, this leaves little ground for optimism, but as dialogue is still possible. meanwhile, russian foreign ministry spokesman has described the thought of war with ukraine as quote, unacceptable. that's despite massing some 100000 troops. now the ukrainian border let's take you were to terry schultz in brussels. she is closely following developments and can give us the perspective from nato h q. terry,
3:03 pm
wonderful to see you just right now, before we came on the air, the russian foreign ministry spokesman said that nato should withdraw forces from eastern europe, and that this would reduce tensions in, in europe. what's the likelihood of that? there's no likelihood of that lila and one of the reasons is because eastern european nations are allies in nato. of course, they're not going to somehow stand down their armed forces as, as a russian demand that simply not possible. and that was one of the things that russia said when it came here to the nato, russia council meeting a few days ago that it nater should go back to its pre 997 borders. and that was before the baltic states joined on the other eastern european countries. the other point that nato makes is that it is because of russia's threatening stance that they reinforce nato troops on the border with, with russia. so there are now standing forces in estonia, latvia, lithuania,
3:04 pm
and poland because those countries felt threatened by russia. and so this is something that you'll hear nato secretary general stillberg say, all the time that you know, we had to put up more deterrence forces because of the russian stance. so, i mean, it's a chicken and egg thing perhaps, but certainly those troops aren't going anywhere as long as the situation remains as tenses it is today as tensile as it is today. terry ukraine, not the only country that is feeling threatened by a russian, the military maneuvers. that's right. and this, this troop build up as, as you mentioned earlier, at least 100000 troops on the border with ukraine. that sends a chill far beyond ukraine. and one of the countries that is, is looking very closely at that now is a country that does not belong to nato. so it doesn't have these guarantees that other countries would come to its defense. and that is sweden with this very beautiful big island of garland right there in the middle of the baltic sea. and
3:05 pm
that is it, that's a place that war gamers always sees 1st when they're pretending to be russia. because from there, you can control the air space into the baltic countries and into sweden and finland . you can control the, the waterways. and if you could block that the, that baltic bay from, from got land. no one would be able to go to the rescue of the baltics. so i wanted to take a look at got lind for myself, and i went there last week. in normal times, the only large groups of foreigners coming to gotten and are the $1000000.00 tourists who flocked to the swedish island every year. but now the swedish government is preparing for the possibility of unwelcome visitors as russian president vladimir putin's military maneuvers spread concern far beyond ukraine. we cannot exclude an armed attack against sweden. and what we want to do, we us know is to be very clear that we are ready to turn sweden and the course of that. we are also doing what we're doing on dial on mclaughlin. kirkland is
3:06 pm
a do strategic prize duel in the baltic. c, a central for nato's access to its baltic allies and its swedish and finished partners from this island you cannot control both of the air and sea waste in the region. garland was a key military asset for sweden, for centuries, until 2005, when the swedish government assessed post cold war tensions as so low that it disbanded all the permanent military units here in what turned out to be just wishful thinking. that's why the swedish government has been re arming the island since shortly after russia's seizure of ukraine's crimea region and has intensified it in recent weeks. that glockland could be next in the kremlin site is no longer unthinkable for swedes watching the russian government continue to escalate a bit like a game of chicken. we're one of the drivers rush on this case as your stronger. ready steering wheel out the window, so we're having to unfortunate to some kind of crash in my view, defense minister hook this believes the country has enough friends to feel safe,
3:07 pm
even without being a member of nato. we have deep corporation with united states who have us. you care, so we're a close partner, we are a name to partnership. we have a not nordic solidarity, a doctrine. and we also have the solidarity doctrine in the re p and union. but being a partner to nato doesn't provide the guarantee of mutual def, since that allies get and which pull yonce in head of the swedish parliaments, defense committee feels his country needs. we can hope we can assume we can wish that we get the support from nato, but we can look no longer rejoined alliance. a recent poll shows an increasing number of swedes support nato membership. but that still only amounts to about a 3rd of the population. for now, anyway, if something very serious would happen in this part of the world, mister fulton decided on something in the baltic region here. i think we would apply very quickly. but then the question would be whether nato would accept
3:08 pm
a country already in dire straits, especially if got land were gone. terry us the sweets there, the swedish leadership walking a very fine line. yeah, a lot of, of their strategy relies on hope. hope that vladimir putin does not decide to extend his reach beyond the border where he's now massing his troops and go there into the baltic sea. and nobody really thinks that there's a high probability that will happen. but given the unpredictability of the kremlin right now, nobody can say that probability is 0. and that's the problem that sweden has. the defense minister told me that they're having to plan for things they don't even want to think about. and yet they must. and so the strategy here is to show russia that it would not be able to, to just walk in and take got land that these new forces that have been sent to,
3:09 pm
to the island would be able to hold off a russian attack. no matter how unlikely that may seem at this moment, these abuses, terry. oh sure sir. reporting. thank you for bringing us that are very, very interesting perspective. thank you. let's bring up to speed now at some of the other stories in the headlines right now. we're keener foss. those military junta has met with members of the ousted government. the former ministers have been ordered not to leave the country without permission. the army seized power on monday and detained burkina faso, democratically elected leader. the crew has been condemned internationally, badly needed international aid has been delivered to the pacific island nation of tomba, vessels from australia, britain and china have now arrived, bringing water and basic medical and sanitation supplies. the island kingdom was devastated by an underwater volcanic eruption and su nami, 2 weeks ago. it distorts villages and knocked out communications.

3:16 pm
survive off. so look there we didn't think anybody would survive. people were just dying at such a rate and it was obvious, even if helped it didn't come when a deed, i mean the whole camp would have just died out pals to mentally after the war mana and her cousin anne was sent with other children to sweden and then a letter arrived from marla's brother ben. he had survived a different camp and made it to the u. k. she soon went to join him for many years . molla tripage didn't talk about her childhood experiences. but now she feels she has a duty to speak about the past while she still can there, is there been a fresh oil leak at a refinery off the coast of peru? authority say it happened during work on an underwater pipeline at the la,

3:22 pm
fans of jana jackson are all a buzz about a new front promising an unprecedented look at her life, childhood and relationship with her larger than life. brother michael or the documentary title, simply jana jackson makes a debut on friday. it includes never before seen footage and was produced by miss jackson herself. chris, a sneak peak. i love janet jackson's many, many women. she's an empowered woman. he's alleging the greatest show there were in new york. we were just there. there are neuron melody's. i sent you right. your versus alright my because i know he had something to say what,
3:23 pm
what was your opening piece? i just want to write yours down. so i'm tired of injustice. i'm tired of the scheme . julissa disgusting. so what does it mean? i think that is something that surprised me just how much she did get involved in the documentary, you know, kind of on a one to one basis with me. my father was very strict. ah, he was in charge of my life, my career. my father said you're going to say he gave up his spot to get them in the business with jap mother how you feel, talking about my i can't ah, you've been very private about your personal life open. so now, why didn't you want to do this documentary? it's just something that needs to be done. it's janet jackson there to
3:24 pm
talk more about this superstar karen homestead is here from our culture department . i know so interesting. intensely private person. yeah. so why did she decide to release this documentary now? well, in a technically, it honors the 40th anniversary of the, of the release of her debut album, janet jackson, which came back in 1982. so there's, so there's kind of that as the hook, but, you know, it actually, they started filming around the time of her father's death back in 2018. and they've actually been really working on this already for over 5 years. so i think, you know, just as it was a gradual process to get out of the shadow of her brothers, i mean, she was the youngest of 10 children in that family. it's incredible to think of that. it's taking her some time to really understand her own story and extricate it really from the public narrative that's been around the jackson's for so long. so, at 55, you know, she's ready to tell it in your own words, and let's not forget that she's one of the most successful recording artists ever. and, you know, her career, her, her stage shows her choreography is really had,
3:25 pm
were hugely influential for so many artists, but also for the music industry itself. so this is, you know, it's, she's definitely, as relevant as ever, long overdue, i should add, as well. i understand there are 2 parts to this documentary. and of course, the only thing that people talk about is the incident noise i cameo out of court weighs more than a cameo. i think, i mean, 1st of all, you know, she does talk a lot about her, her childhood and sort of how, how innocent she was. i really feel, i think you really see the woman taking control of this narrative. as i said, you know, to, to quote, sort of the title of her breakthrough album. but yes, of course, she does talk about nipple gates and we'll address that. that's the incident, of course, from the super bowl halftime show in 2004. when justin timberlake, of course, he often gets forgotten. he ripped off her course and revealed her breath for i think a fraction of a section 2nd. and unfortunately it's, it's really been
3:26 pm
a defining event in her career. it is one of the most searched events, apparently in the history of the internet, and even inspired the founders of youtube, which is something that i didn't know. so it's interesting that with all of that, she was massively shamed by this, by this incident for years, while justin timberlake really got off scot free. it had huge implications for her career. so she's saying that it's very important for women today to actually have this conversation around that event to understand that her confidence is changed. if we look at stories like britney spears, to see how women get put into these narratives that, that they definitely were not necessarily entirely responsible for. and we're in a time and an era of reckoning. so hopefully there we revisit that. what about her relationship with her brother, michael? well, she does address her relationship with him, especially to, to mention of course that it started to change very much with the advent of the
3:27 pm
hugeness of his start with, with thriller for instance, with a release of that album. it's understandable that there's an awful lot of pain around that conflict, a complex for her, for and for the family, obviously, because of the scandal reflected very badly on all of them. but i think quite understandably, also because of the pain that this inflicted at having lost him a 2nd time. really. so she so often been criticized in the past for not being such a word. smith. i think she's really, this is the chance for her to open up and tell her story in her own words. and in one word we're can we watch it on a and e, and it will be on another channel. and so i for friday and saturday night, it's coming up very much into part must see. thank you so much for watching. i will be back up with
3:28 pm
ah ah mm mm mm. with a, it's important not to discourage on this because i'm in my country. i'm doing
3:29 pm
anything wrong and i'm just trying to protect my my to korean. she wants to defend her country against the likely russian invasion. that's why she's training along with other volunteers. can the ukrainian army count on them during a conflict? in 60 minutes on d w. 2016 as like a bunch of the queen customer wants to see if germany was for me. the last few years have been quite a ride early in touch with averted on the home of when it comes to germany is and of course i always look in the eyes birch is, but perhaps the biggest on the new hobby of mine, i'm no longer approved i love to be and then you'd better repose americans, but when you're feeling altogether, you'll realize that coach is just another way of living. are you ready to meet the driver and then join me, right? just do it on b, w. ah, one of mankind's oldest ambition could be within reach
