There's a good chance this will be extended for the world. I'm canal shankar. In chennai secretary of state anthony blinken is meeting with his russian counterpart for the first time today. Blinken we'll sit down with russian. Foreign minister sergei lavrov on the sidelines of the arctic council gathering that's happening in capital reykjavik. The face to face meeting comes during a tense time for us. Russia alina polyakova is with us to talk about the significance of this diplomatic engagement. She's president and ceo of cpa the centre for european policy analysis in washington. Alina before we touch on the blinken love rough meeting. Can you define the current state of us russia relations. It's been very much a low point in the relationship. And i think i sound like a broken record because many times but certainly now we are coming to this meeting on the heels of the solar winds cyber operation most expansive espionage operation. That was carried out against the united states. We have the russian buildup on the border of ukraine. We have the russian jailing of the main opposition leader inside. A russian exceed the monday and just a slew of very challenging issues that make any cooperation quite difficult going forward given all that. What's on the agenda for today's sideline meeting between blinken and lavrov. An official summit is just a meeting. We'll certainly the foreign minister. Secretary of state will likely be talking about the upcoming summit between their two presidents president. Putin and president biden are now supposed to meet some time in mid june. The likely be talking about the agenda there. Russia of course is also the man power in the arctic. A remains a gatekeeper. In many ways it will continue to assert its influence in the region where the us also has increasing interest. I think there's a common agenda here to talk about. Climate change of course that's affecting russia's affecting the united states is affecting the entire world and i think there'll be a discussion about cyber as i mentioned that is becoming such a critical issue for the united states and russia as well but it's very difficult to see there's going to be any sort of specific outcomes from this bilateral conversation this summit between president biden and russian president vladimir putin which is expected to happen this summer. Why is that meeting so important. From both perspectives from biden and putin we are at a very low point in the relationship today so having a reliable and stable relationship for the united states in russia is something administration has said they want. I think with this meeting. They're trying to send the message that this is an olive branch. We have a lot of differences by despite that we're still two superpowers. Russia is a nuclear superpower. Of course we need to have a diplomatic relationship here even if we are so opposed on a huge number of issues for the russian side. The summit is an opportunity to present themselves as a global power. This is something that is very important to moscow to be seen with the global superpower. So in terms of diplomacy in optics. These summits are very very important to the russians and from the us side. I think it's an important branch that we still want a diplomatic relationship with russia. Even though we're at a very low point in what we can actually do together. It's interesting many russia-watchers have criticized the biden administration saying that putin shot granted the chance to share a stage with joe biden. Look i think it's important to maintain a diplomatic relationship with a nuclear superpower that has the ability to destroy the united states. We need to be clear about that. Should that happen at. The highest levels of diplomacy between the two has a state. I don't think that's the approach right now. A summit is a good idea. Once we know why the outcomes of that summit will be right now. It's very hard to see what the united states gets out of a summit with russia's president i think right now that very much to me looks like it's the president to the kremlin and does not serve the interests i want to get back to today's meeting in reykjavik about the arctic the biden administration has said that russia should stop militarization in the region. Is this yet another front in which the two sides are going to be hopelessly at odds in the coming years. The arctic has become this zone of competition between russia. The united states and of course china and russia remains the gatekeeper in the region and increasingly. There's very little in terms of scientific cooperation in terms of cooperation on resource extraction from the russian perspective. The arctic is their zone of influence. And it's very difficult for the united states to now dislodged has become a quite significant ability from the russian side to call decisions in that region. Unfortunately i don't think we're going to see a great cooperation. Between russia and the united states russia will use its position arctic to leverage anything can in terms of concessions from the united states. Of course the united states is going to want to give any concessions anywhere. And so i think. We're going to be loggerheads in the archer. Just as we are at loggerheads so many other parts of the world. Today as long as we have the current regime in power in russia. Elena polyakova is president and ceo of cpa the centre for european policy analysis in washington. Thanks a lot alina. Thank you carol..

I hope we all get back to normal at some point here and we can Start seeing each other face to face so thanks. Absolutely stay healthy Mike Smith let's go to a caller. I think we have fried on from east. My Good Morning Fred Blueberry I'm sorry Fred from newbury there we go Vermont have enough personal protective equipment for healthcare workers. Though that I'm sorry say it again does not have enough personal protective equipment for healthcare workers. Well I actually Interestingly enough I was just looking at a story in bt digger about that and there's some discussion about About a quite a bit of Of this gear coming into the state in just the last few days and then it looks like if the projections hold for sort of how how high the wave is GonNa get how many cases of Vermont The Vermont should be okay in this regard and There's always a chance to because it's so hard to predict that we could have ended up with extra stuff and then That question was asked. I think that the governor's news conference yesterday. One of the reporters and the An and I think that point they're going to this this This corona virus is gonna hit different parts of the country and sort of hit the maximum upward curve or whatever in those locations At different times and so I think what you may see. I'm this is. This is a wild guess. Don't hold me to this folks but I wouldn't be surprised if the projections hold true. That that peaks in late April or early May in Vermont. You'll see our our supplies of this stuff the personal protective equipment etcetera depleted significantly. But if it gets to July and we decided we are basically you know pretty much over this thing and there are and it's but the it's increasing in. I don't know gains us certain Nebraska or something maybe we ships and so if we have extra supplies me we ship them Kansas Nebraska. So I think there's a there's a real sense of uncertainty surrounding every aspect of this pandemic and One of them is. Will we have enough supplies? The Hope Right now is the answer is yes. That's all I can tell you. A motive in the store supplies then have a reserve this A. There's a medical supplies take it out of it but always replace it so they have a reserve like extensive. I I think I think I mean. That's the big question right now. Is Ken Health System Assuming that with as a lot of public health officials believe this won't be the last pandemic we will see in the coming years or decades or whatever We may have to really to what the health care system with a new ability to you know suddenly kind of expand its ability to respond to something like this We were caught flat-footed. I'd say this time can be caught. Flat-footed flat-footed began. So Freddie gotta take another call before we round out the show but Thank you for checking in. We'll talk soon. Hey let's go to rene and he's my Good Morning Renee. Good morning thanks. Thanks for the program I have to Thought that I've had that. I've seen from international sir sources but definitely see nothing in Vermont and that is that There's such a limited number of testing and A lot of her monitors were really ill in January and early February before we even heard of Cova da but We're not getting any tested tests here in Vermont to know to see if we have the antibodies in our immune systems and also the countries who were able to manage the Cova. Did they They were testing everybody. Not only people with symptoms. So it's great that we're starting to wear masks and everything but What can the Scott Administration do?

"Corona virus Response by the Federal Government Will you know within a within the next month to start to really seem more more streamlining damage or are they getting together over time or is it still going to feel like? It's a bit of a shakedown cruise. I think that especially given the spice so we've seen in the last few weeks and the numbers of people dying in this country rising so rapidly The way that people responding to this I've been Much more I guess respectable to the guidelines put in place Than they were in a few weeks ago. But we're still seeing people ignore some of these guidelines and I say particularly places that haven't really seen the impact hit them as hard as some of the cities like New York That have been kind of paralyzed by the virus. But I do think that the president a big And a lot of people said you know Kudos to him for extending the guidelines. The federal guidelines He Bridge I hope that the economy people would be going back to work By this Sunday on Easter he extended those guidelines by the recommendation of several public health officials scientific across the country And hopefully people are looking to that as a signal to stay home and stay indoors now of course Those federal guidelines don't necessarily You know they're not mandatory and it's really up to governors of the states to make these decisions And so we've seen a lot of governors someone like Governor Rhonda Sanchez from Florida others in Mississippi and Alabama being much slower to respond In the way that the White House and the federal government has another governors And so I think that it's going to continue to be an uphill battle in many states where people just aren't taking this seriously as they need to all right well.

"Wd after the midpoint of the show we like to bring in one of our national correspondence and We have found a new source of folks who are able to talk to us about that broader picture of what's going on in the nation and the world and that is A terrific online news service axios the very kindlier able and willing to make available to us From time to time One of their correspondence to talk to us about what Axios DOT COM has been reporting and I believe we have Alina Trine on the phone with us this morning. Good Morning Elena can winning. I hope you're doing well and you to I wanted to check in with you One of the things I love about. Actually I get email every morning from you all With Mike Top ten Mike Allen of course was he a founding editor there. I think one of the He was one of the founders and now Are Managing Editor. Got It okay. And one of the Well the the lead item on his top ten this morning. One big thing warning of mass death circulated in the West Wing in January and This was a A White House official. Peter Navarro actually Prison trump's traded advisor warnings White House. Colleagues Corona virus could take more than half a million lives in cost close to six trillion dollars according to memo obtained by Axios Jonathan Swan Margaret Talev and Elena. I was just wondering What kind of reaction of you folks got into this story. So far today Well a lot of reaction. It's pretty amazing. I will say you know. There's a lot of people out there who Kinda doubt some time are reporting on these things but confirmed these memos with several people in the White House of course every time we report a massive story like this or any story really involving the White House. We always go to their press shop and make sure that they have an opportunity to come and respond to the And so yeah it's A. It's a massive story because it does you know pre-dinner borrow one of the president's top advisers was warning about the massive impact of the corona virus on the US months before Really we've seen the big outbreak and did speak labeled a pandemic here in the US And a lot of people are saying you know. We had paid attention to these warnings earlier. Perhaps the virus wouldn't have spread so quickly and been so bad as we're seeing now and you know there's been a lot of chatter about how the president in particular and some others in his administration We're basically Slow on the uptake here. In terms of back in January early February really right up until middle of March There were a lot of steps that people now wish had been taken earlier One one defensive I keep hearing from folks on the right is Is that the president. Did order a travel restriction For people coming from China I believe January twenty eighth and so You know That's the and that sort of the prime example we give you know quote unquote bold steps taken by this president to try to limit the outbreak. But do I have it? Correct that in In the in the case of January twenty eighth order it did not apply to Americans coming back from. China was mainly geared geared toward Chinese nationals. Is that right? Yes that is right and I will say a lot of people. `specially administration officials. We spoke with for this story. Wendy's the existence of these memos. I came too late third circulating within the White House. They were spread around by the National Security Council. Which Peter Navarro? I provided the first memo to There was a lot of skepticism about how Urging the need for that travel ban and for other really masses measures to try and contain the outbreak. Where it because by then we hadn't really seen a lot of cases or really any I believe In the US even though they were starting to spread all throughout China and into other countries But some people thought that Peter Navarro. He's aid A well known China Hawk. He's very he's always had a very anti trying. To view. You see that in some of his trade policies and some people were worrying about what some of these measures would have on the economy. The impact on American businesses. Early on before recognizing how bad the virus would be later on And with regard to the severity of of the band Of course you know the as you mentioned. The president did in institute a ban on travel specifically from China but There's a reason that a lot of public health perks experts. Don't lean heavily on travel restrictions because people come into the US from a lot of places Of course the virus spread very quickly from other countries and so as as much is that was a decision that people praise the president for. Especially when you look into your mirror something that a lot of people. Scientists public health experts say the president trump made the right call there. But it's not something It should be shocking that it was legal. That insufficient really Now that we look back on the administration's other maybe shortcomings as people have said in trying to contain the virus. We and I saw New York Times story the other day indicating that about forty thousand people had entered the country from China it even in the weeks since that January twenty eighth travel restriction was put in place and so. I I guess took effect actually first couple of days February if I remember correctly And so pre porous really as as a A as a as a program for you know stopping the spread of disease I I would think would in just wondering do any Do any public health officials that have come to your attention. Now there are they saying that You know we may have sort of shaved the peak with his strategy or or is it really going to be too difficult to tell. I think we definitely I think the the ban definitely did contribute to Helping you know. Cut Back at some point but at one point the overwhelming the EASEL. The spread of this virus is so easy Given you know you can have some time. You could be a dramatic to spread it and Across the country. We've seen a lot of people there. Slow on the uptake to responding to these social distancing guidelines and shelter in place orders and so It's going to be hard. It's how we're in the place now where this week and the next few weeks depending on where you live in the country We'll see different peaks of how bad the virus is. I think that the guidelines in place to stay home not go out as you don't need to Trying to contain this much. You can stay away from people as much as possible. will only contribute to helping you know. Contain this as quick as possible but we will continue to see the peak and the severity of this Arise in the next few weeks and as I said this to you a couple of weeks ago when we were on when I joined you and it's still true the worst may still be yet to come especially in places that haven't seen as much of an impact as some of the other hotspots like Washington and New York that we've seen so far. Yeah I mean that's the that's the issue here is coming in waves and nobody really knows exactly where next I think That's one of the one of the difficulties one of the sort of anxiety invoking uncertainties here I wouldn't one thing that you know I I I do wonder whether the.
