live to kill. me she shot let's. see. will he stay over will he go to him and only has him on line from chelsea until the end of the season the twenty four year old was born in brussels belgium will he become don't miss new super hero. for one more but wanted to fulfill beings of light but who is me she bats why exactly. his parents moved to belgium from congo. let's have a look at him up close and personal. choice you give. me shit. it all began in belgium
i mean she has a good. looking good mission. pretty good. he started out just on the edge where he stayed for six years they've been champions of the belgian late ten times but the way his little brother aaron also plays football species next stop was must say he she has a. ship in this french seaport that's why i grew to be a much softer strike and international player. oh and he also has a twin sister who's a model that will bring the. cup. in twenty fifteen the pats man made his international debut for belgian. and with the belgian national team he has lots of fun.
after two years in my sight he headed to chelsea. has a. thirty nine million euros a record transfer from a site. what else he's a fan of sponge bob. and dragon ball. right mission. so now one says don't thank me she has a. blue streak. since day one but why has had to pray to the dalton fans that he can be a new and better batman his predecessor obama young did it pretty well and left behind large shoes to fill. that position opened up the she was that to sweep into
the rescue. scene sense of what might be a community is his home mixing with this week combined with the music that's. going to compute. most of us who. will try stay in durham and over his journey continue. and have a new batman and these three in its starting line up mario got some great show love among the royce. state twenty three dot let me first mention got five. live. so thank you for your.
rice secured three points. it's amazing it's a good feeling we're very good friends and. we wanted this for a long time and now it's finally there and now we have to get healthy and then played together like like we used to. it was the first time together and darkman starting lineup three close friends. we knew each other from the youth league level because we're all roughly the same age and then on the german national team we all met again that's where it happens is you know. his as i. think it's i'm sure that transferred to dortmund in the summer of two thousand and sixteen it was a dream come true for the palace all three playing for the same team you know on earth ration goes through it's a really great feeling on the national team we always used to joke that we might all end up at the same club one day but none of us really thought it would have happened about this business off the roof but then it took another year and a half until they were on the same starting line up in football that seems like an
eternity. as for andre sure he's had a streak of bad luck during his time in dortmund countless injuries repeatedly held him back his self-confidence and fitness were in danger but now that's changed after confidence and after that the trust from the manager that's that's all you need because if you're not on the pitch you can't can't play good and so now i want to or i want to give everything i want to play i want to have fun and at the moment i'm in the good form soft to keep it and look forward to the helis mario good so missed a lot of matches in the meantime know he's on the right track to being in top form . and tomorrow mostly just told us that once you get back in the rhythm of playing it helps to get back in shape and fourth it's important for everybody to trust himself and to work on his fitness to really get back to one hundred percent so. marco wright is finally completed the trio. after being injured for nine months
right away he's back in the game his goal against blood was his first in two hundred seventy four days what credible for you i. mean you know. he finds a modern we're always happy to be on the pitch together which hasn't been the case too often. or today that was the case and i think we did really well. yeah still even if there's still room to improve the whole mystery. finally that three tales of hardship have found a happy ending the best friends are reunited on the pitch and all three have big plans for the future with germany at the world cup and if all goes well with you i've been in the champions league. now to a man who's a fighter with a soft side. that's right we go visit them for us you mention blood but.
happy as can be that wasn't always the case. tone of your shirt on the come on the. mic you know and then you know and then put. his story started with poverty and hunger and those who were true whether or not this number of moves that he took. a story with early setbacks. to morrow it's a story full of struggles and desperation. i think simply. an even simpler one of them yet but i don't deny but it's also a story with an incredible happy ending. if you do. anything in for the people in inmates who have made up. what happened to raul above idea who helped him on his way to stardom and how did this tiny boy
become a footballing things. that a search kicks off in argentina's capital but outside as it may look like it's all sunshine and tango but for many life in the city is a struggle. but that's not such. an organism with my being here the only living thing. the little boy had big dreams and knew that football was the way out. on the whole joe not you. not only grew up a diehard fan club produced talents like diego maradona played in a youth team until one day they won't bow to continue to call you improvements or prettiest this year get him which he did in london you know nothing about his
family. before the us with us from the only. original point of the case so you all can lead on this when you are a bit disappointed kid needed help and found it at the local football camp because she's fed him more than just knowledge. a b.b.'s in the. group or from here that we don't do. you know he. intends to hell when he. regained his confidence thanks to good coaching and regular meals. dipping in and his hanging out you know no clue. you. know what i'm. going to go and. sealing it in torment you know. but
then a small miracle occurred riddle place his favorite team's biggest rival in the challenge the record champions were desperate to sign him up they could sell it was something special for. me. because. i mean the ice age you know the. or do i do what i want i was him he made a choice you know the playing answer you tournament in europe an offer from basel he headed to switzerland but it wasn't quite what he expected. you know a good thing. i don't see near him in the nation the clues go on like this and hopefully also. where play such a gift from we would amount to nearly all my. you it for you and cream to loosen
the name and the tone of your shirt on this home on the. make you don't even need to do it before. but poverty up pulled through and eventually got his big money so the german ponderously get. all the dia left fights out he has his grandfathers tattooed on his chest to give him strength they always what a million of them definitely that gentle poke you know i said meatball chiquitos within me but i'm not gonna quit so michael matz through young. earth with mice and mice in the bus i don't. know no not so let me feel old but i think of them. to hold a lot of them. disagree. now
i will but i guess as a proud father himself this little boy i know i got he has. a new number son in dusty and i know he will look at it said eva look going to hear what i have to commune i knew he helplessly do you believe in a foot of warning about. he beat poverty and hunger to become a footballer now in. the fight. so what it is what football stars don't only know how to kick a ball to run a search kick off life present some secret talent. and.
online on your mobile and free. stuff. made easy. barely feel. the scars on. the pain. suffering for god. for c.b.s. and. they have survived but do they also have a future. i really understand people who say they don't want to stay here. but i also admire people who want to stay here and who decided to create something . new beginning in peace time for the people making it possible what needs to happen tolerance and reconciliation are to stand
a chance. out of darkness cities after a war. starting march tenth on d w. there is due to be news coming to you live from berlin no ceasefire for syria russia don't suppose you did a humanitarian truce at the u.n. security council this is a new wave of attacks in eastern good just kidding and injuring more people also coming up another victim of last week's florida school shooting is laid to rest
president trump appears to give some drunk on gun control of the city and says the teacher is beyond. class a very good day for the winter olympics most controversial competitive as the limbic accurate secure three medals on day fifteen with success and i feel cocky and figure skating can bring you the latest from kyung cha. a look of i'm good to have your company. the u.n. envoy for syria has renewed his argent calls for an immediate cease fire in eastern guta near the syrian capital damascus this a day after russia blocked a u.n. security council resolution calling for a thirty day humanitarian truth moscow's demanding seven amendments delaying the
vote until later today meanwhile there's been more bombing by syrian forces today as warplanes shelled the heavy populated enclave human rights monitors say government shelling has killed more than four hundred people since sunday including many children who were there don't you think even for those surrounded by day it is a crushing moment. suppose. a father hugs his child one last time. for syria's victims there is no dignity in dying. should. and for syria's government there is no relenting every minute bombs are dropped. monitored groups say more than four hundred men women and children have been killed since sunday homes and hospitals obliterated leaving doctors to handle matters of life and death amid the ruins. we had to do one of the operations under
the rubble and if. we couldn't evacuate we had to do it under the rubble. of them so i'm now. the syrian regime says rebel extremist groups who control eastern are using humans as shields the un security council has been debating a thirty day ceasefire that was along for a deliverance and the evacuation of casualties. these are not terrorists showing up in these makeshift emergency rooms these are civilians they are ordinary people under attack by a barbaric assad regime that is bent on leaving eastern ghouta level to the ground with no regard for the four hundred thousand men women and children who live there but it was met with resistance to russia blocking the resolution. the world just used to achieve stabilisation painstaking work is necessary these parties need to
sit down and negotiate the parameters of the ceasefire there is no other way. but hope still locks within the beseech concrete canyons. by the young men it comes in the shape of a hole and i slowly but surely they're digging their way to safety. the only escape from a torrent of coal mines must be an underground one. is the syrian doctor who worked in aleppo at a time when the syrian city was experiencing the kind of bombing that we're now seeing in eastern huta i asked him to give us a sense of what civilians there are going through now. so it's like. literally hell in a little time out like back in aleppo like. for years. it's same thing happened all the time with no different yeah.
for five years so. everything like that maybe america medications that was a few unfortunate i just sort of city and now this public. attacks happening for the past ten days it's a disaster humanitarian disaster. you look at the pictures that we are seeing are of civilians that the syrian regime face that they are rebel groups based on day using civilians as human shields what's your response to that. actually it's not making sense at all the. cheap propaganda always used those claims back there was three hundred thousand. people and the regime also claims that like. the fighters are using them as shells but it's not making sense at
all because in aleppo back in aleppo there was well it's opened and people. wanted to stay in aleppo same thing happened for five years. there was open and people want to stay in their hometowns. and not the fighters who are still rounding. the regime has to run to get. preventing and they think or anyone to come in or out from up with up. in two thousand and sixteen when i was talking to a liberal and yet a doctor was killed attack most of the game and the washington. media pages claimed that they managed to target and kill the tourist doctor so they consider it but you accept doctor is he as a tourist and say that he is treating tourists so it's not making sense at all it's a cheap propaganda something even like and how many. talk about of. you know you
work as a doctor in aleppo and what you're seeing coming out of new fake injuries of people and children what the specific challenges doctors face in dealing with such a situation. main challenge is that the doctors and hospitals are the main targets all the time during the best three days more than twenty one health facility have been targeted. so it's the main target the main targets for the which him and the russian are the hospital facilities the bakeries and the schools so that's the most sad and the other thing that. those people and those doctors know for sure that they are list alone. killing machine so they have to think each time each injury over how many medications they can use before it's. because they are afraid thinking all the time that they might run away or filthy
painkiller or six or everything so. i mean most children very very situation based on that it's such a difficult situation thank you so much for finding time to talk to us hamza al-khateeb a seven doctor who worked in aleppo sharing his thoughts with us and be a thank you very much. turkey is free to german national head to prison for political reasons this has been confirmed by the german foreign ministry on friday the identity of the prisoner has not yet been disclosed in the person will not be allowed to leave ticky being onsen comes a week off the release of german tech is janice dennis you cheated he spent more than a year in investigative custody. usually was allowed to return immediately to gemini his release was seen as a sign of easing tensions between germany and ticking for german citizens remain in
jail. that now drawing up political correspondent thomas spot on the mend just to just tell us what do we know about this german citizen and turkey and israelis. i'm richard we know very little about this person we don't even know if it's a man or a woman we don't know how long he or she spent in prison we don't know what prison this person was in we only know what you yourself mentioned there that he had been in prison that he's been released but he can't leave the country as of now the spokesperson today here in berlin was asked why he couldn't give any details about this person and he explained that it was essentially because of privacy protection that the german government can only give personal information about these cases when the person in question explicitly agrees to have that information released and that in this specific case that does not happen that they don't have that
permission so that's the reason why they're not handing out information so that's also the reason why we know very very little about this person not these the detention of these cases of strained relations between the two countries and now we've seen two of them released within a week why essentially if you ask the government they will say that's their diplomatic efforts that was certainly the case with the release of mr a few days ago in fact the german foreign minister stress that it was basically germany's diplomatic efforts talking to turkish officials that it was the key behind them if you chose release and it's probably also the case here but again since it's very difficult to find any concrete information about this person it is also difficult to find information about what prompted his release from turkish prison just founded upon an interest who does thank you. european leaders are meeting in brussels today to tackle some major issues including the e.u. s'posed brags that finances on the table is a possible increase in contributions that's to plug the budget shortfall after
britain leaves the bloc next year before that summit the e.u. commission hosted high level talks on fighting terrorism and stemming migration through africa's sahil region that's rocked the world's poorest areas more than four hundred million euros has been pledged by e.u. nations for the region the e.u. also said it would double its funding for a joint military operation set up by the five countries in the sahil where security is threatened by extremist groups and criminal networks are helping this has become a european priority because of the high levels of migration from the region to europe the europe's front here in central africa thousands of migrants travel through it before they can take their chances crossing the mediterranean for years the hell has been plagued by jihadist groups and criminal networks smuggling
weapons drugs and humans across borders it's become a breeding ground for terrorists and a big worry for the you. in brussels boosting development was a key topic at today's meeting with leaders from the african region but the main issue on the agenda was that of security the european union has pledged to double its funding to the g five so help joint force a partnership of fight to help countries mauritania burkina faso mali need her and chad founded to counter terror and illegal immigration in the area. we want to support the g five sale joint force. the e.u. was the first to believe in this project and invest in it with the first bit of fifty million euros last july today the european union will double its support to the joint force. other countries such as the new and saudi arabia have also pledged support until now the head region has heavily relied on european countries for
security france alone has more than four thousand troops deployed in the area the g. five partnership aims to be fully operational later this year europe is hoping that it will mean more military self-reliance and fewer european troops on the ground in the sahara. let me bring you up to some other stories making news around the wound australia's deputy prime minister bobby joyce is announced his resignation joyce had been under sustained pressure to resign after revelations of an affair with his former staff member came to light now new allegations of sexual harassment against him have emerged. nigerian authorities say the schoolgirls who were unaccounted for following a book overarm attack on monday are still missing this comes after early reports suggested that some of them had been rescued dozens of girls from the state run boarding school inductee in you'll be
a state of thought to have been abducted by extremists. haiti has suspended oxfam great britain's operations in the country for two months pending an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct the move followed reports that oxfam staff held sex parties and sexually abused women during relief efforts for a devastating earthquake in two thousand and ten. to the united states there are new details have emerged about last week's florida school shooting that left seventeen people dead the armed officer assigned to the school waited outside the building during the shooting and did not confront the killer this news comes as president carter trying to schooling for tighter background checks and for some teachers to be armed. this is the coffin of chris hicks and hailed a hero for trying to stop the shooter at the florida school he worked at a u.s. navy veteran he was given full military honors. as families lay
their loved ones to rest more details about the fateful day are emerging surveillance footage has shown that the armed officer on duty scott peterson never went inside the school to confront the gunman was radio at a point in time. and he took up a position where it looked like he could see the western most entry into the building and they were was never going to. peterson has now resigned and is under investigation. the latest the shooting has led to a raging debate on gun control the national rifle association the n.r.a. offered its solution to ending gun violence stop bad guy with a gun it takes a good guy with a guy school districts p.t.a.
teachers unions local law enforcement moms and dads they all must come together to implement the very best strategy talk harden their schools including of fact to have trained armed security that will absolutely protect every innocent child in this country. advocates of further gun control are demanding action be taken we are taking students protesting outside the white house this week said they were angry that school massacres have become commonplace and little has been done to stop them according to gun control advocates a group there have been eighteen school shootings since the beginning of the year i mean the public outcry president trump has endorsed a higher minimum age for buying certain rifles and tighter background checks for purchasers. he also rates are rated his call for some teachers to carry guns.
your have in my opinion you want to have the shit is because these people are cowards they're not going to walk into a school if twenty percent of the teachers of god said maybe ten percent or maybe forty percent that what i'd recommend doing is the people that do care and we give that what bonus we give them a little bit of a bonus back in florida the family of slain chris heaps and like thousands of others in the united states every year is coming to terms with the consequences of gun violence let's get some business news doll from helena and bitcoin's while dr continues head and that is not been the best week for bit coin i'm afraid amri said the cryptic currencies struggle to stay above that key ten thousand dollar mark and it's currently just shy of it still people invested in the cryptocurrency a year ago would now be seeing a return of seven hundred percent quite impressive figure for something that some say is making money out of thin air so how exactly does it work let's take
a look at the technology behind it. you can't pay for anything with real physical tokens like these bitcoin is a digital currency and it's value is determined just like everything else by supply and demand and unlike with the dollar and the euro there are no central banks able to influence the course of the crypto currency value. bitcoins were first programs ten years ago the developer was known only by a pseudonym said toshi nakamoto to this day the programmer behind the technology has never been identified the idea that everyone who installs the bitcoin software on their desktop or smartphone becomes part of the bitcoin network. the digital ledger that supposedly makes a bit coin both independent and secure is what's known as block chain a block chain is a digital chain managed by many computers and networks which keep track of records and what are called blocks each block contains information about
a transaction the block is checked and verified by all the computers distributed throughout the network and contain security codes from previous blocks that practically eliminates the chances of manipulating or counterfeiting the currency. at the moment bitcoin is still on a wild roller coaster ride in the markets but one thing is fairly certain it won't fall victim to inflation the algorithm behind the digital technology both allowed the mining of more than twenty one million bitcoins and they'll all have been created by the year twenty one forty eight. i want to delve deeper now into the world of block chain and joining me here in the studio is shaming russian get the founder of block chain hub dot net and the director of the crypto economics institute at the vienna university of economics i mean great to have you with us for inviting me now i've heard that you think that block chain has the opportunity has the potential to rev a lot revolutionize the wall to some extent explain to me how in which areas well
we're now today talking a lot about bitcoin and cryptocurrency s. but it's really just the beginning and the first application of the next next generation internet some refer to it as the decentralized web or the web three which will redefine our data structures and bring more ownership of our data back to us and it allows us to have real peer to peer transactions without centralized institutions who own our data. is money without banks and bank managers and it's like the first application just like email used to be the first application of the. it back in the ninety's a lot of people thought that e-mail is the internet in the early ninety's most people could not phantom what would come next continuing in that vein and can you see applications beyond the world of finance yes there are many applications and many startups actually working in this field already for example peer to peer
energy trading we already have decentralized energy production through solar production on house roofs but if neighbor wants to trade their energy production with another neighbor they have to go through a centralized institution like a huge energy provider and thanks to block chain they could have peer to peer energy trading without a centralized institutions like. large energy companies but we could also have right sharing with her and we could have apartment sharing without air b.n. b. and we could have social networks decentralized social networks we already have the first one steam it without a centralized party owning our data these are all very sunny outcomes like anything is light and shade yes you see any potential for dark areas we've blocked what are they. what blocks is a technology it's only a technology it's not the solution to all of mankind's problems i would like to
stress that it's a very powerful technology if we do it right we can create a universal what i like to call freedom machine that enables us to have a peer to peer economy with less centralized institutions. but if we get it wrong we could also create a universal control machine so i think we have to look at the to privacy privacy versus transparency in a data driven world who owns our data and where do we store the data and are we in control of our digital trail and those will be very important questions especially in the light of decentralized technologies they are big questions definitely something that i would want to know where my data is being held for example who. owns it how long until we're talking about block chain is a household name i mean would it just be for business people will i be using it then every day way. the block chain is operating system that sits on top of the internet. i don't know we might not be talking about block
chain we will be using a lot of applications that build on top of it and did the timeline depends on the industry really very much so there are applications that will be possible next year there are application that depend on network effects regulation technology being faster or more user friendly and i think within the next three to ten years we will see a lot coming up right now it's the early adopters who are using it right very briefly we talk about it second navigating for example bank systems where does that leave them financially and do you want to see it do. i know that any banks actually a very happy to get out of the remittance business. banks will not vanish they will have to redefine themselves all right very complex tech you'll be really interesting to see where it goes thank you very much for joining us sharmeen russian good thanks for sharing your and thank you.
time now for an update on the winter olympics in south korea chris harrington from didn't obvious footsteps joins me with all of the big and interesting stories. let's stop now with the team which is the is it a limb pick athletes from russia this is a lot of controversy about russian athletes but now they have a good to celebrate was the story that that's right does have a goal thanks to alina zaga tova only fifteen years old fairly new to competition but in her red dress she thrilled when she picked up the first goal for o.a.r. and she actually set a new world record eighty two point ninety two in the short program beating her rival and of again a med but davis score by one point three one points are routines what we're seeing here we we called the fly camels big double axel several things and there they are in praising the double silver and gold it's nice to tell
a very young she was very happy and thrilled that she actually won and she said it's time to settle in but she pretty much warned all for competition she said she's only starting so i do expect for more things for her as well as the silver medalist medvedev and mesmerizing stuff looking at that or team that we just still seemed russian on they could be getting another gold medal what happened in the ice that's right they pretty much dominated the czech republic they won three male and you know they started to open up the score in the second period nikita who sat score first and that was followed up by vladislav grief cough. that's goosey right there celebrate use of celebrating in the next goal bloody sluff scoring there and the third and final call walczak a former n.h.l. player picked up his fourteenth career goal in the olympics so that's good and they are set up to either win gold or medal gold or silver scuse me they're waiting for
the winner of a match as underweight. germany versus canada germany a long shot because canada's right number one in the world but germany's in pole position they can walk away with possibly bronze or even better so a medal anyway for germany and of course if the underdogs as you said in that match ok what is going to pull over to during the day well canada had a pretty big performance canada had a double and they picked up their third consecutive title in the women's ski cross best friends b.f.s. and roommates in the olympic village kelsey served one go she's leading the pack right there in red and her fellow canuck britney fell in one silver in a rounding up the podium was fanny smith from switzerland and it's nice because this the gold and silver put kidda in the double digits in terms of gold in this competition now they have ten and they're trailing germany and norway who each have thirteen gold medals so we're going to wait and see sunday who walks away with the best prize of the most golds but he grabs to canada congrats to canada and also to

joining me again. next. rights lawyer. culture. hair. superfood stylish style icon. life style you're up. to. sixty minutes. where i come from we have to fight for a free press and was born and raised in a military dictatorship with just one to be shot now and if your newspapers when official information as
a journalist i have worked at all ministry for many cantors and that for all those are all in the same order to social inequality a lack of the freedom of the press and corruption we can afford to stay silent when it comes to the fans of the humans and seem right to fold who have decided to put their trust in us. my name is jenny paris and i work. alone a very warm welcome indeed to quadriga where the focus this week is on the strained relations between germany and to this off the german turkish journalist dennys you jill was released from a turkish prison after spending
a year in detention with no charges brought now many people here in germany are asking why did president wretch of thai a bedouin let you joe walk free. was a deal of some kind struck and what does it all have to do with turkey's military incursion into northern syria so our question here on quadriga this week then as you joe is free but what game is turkey playing and to discuss that question i'm joined here in the studio by brilliant move my who writes on turkey for the front for the argument and site and he says freedom for ten years you joe doesn't symbolize a serious change in turkey unfortunately there is no place for hope yet it's also with us his mission to man as a foreign policy specialist for the weekly team sites he lived for several years in istanbul and he argues that turkey is hoping for transactional deals but values stand in the way of closer relations with germany and
a warm welcome troops are already cahow man author and journalist with the berlin based daily the target site on board taxes it is also more common of milan where tennis you joe worked for many years and will recur argues that everyone wants to make sure he's not fighting on too many fronts he needs germany because in syria he's provoking the america just remember my let's begin with you you are a friend of dan is huge i'll explain for us why his case and his personality his person became so important for so many people in germany well actually you should start first at the personalty of the news richard he was one of the most ambitious most reliable journalists in turkey i mean as a former journalist so he always his stories were always made the government so angry so. to silence him they just created the case to put him in prison but then as a person who has two different pest ports he become one of the symbols about the tension
between turkey and germany actually he was kind of the host that took i took his government against germany i mean his his arrest went had no links with law and. even his release has the relation with lho it was just the case it was kind of a negotiation between two countries and something happened behind the curtains and he is now free ok let's just hear what dennis you jel have to say he had himself to say specifically about that point of view that was just mentioning it would go. the funny thing is i still do not know why i was arrested a year ago to be more precise why i was taken hostage a year ago and i also don't know why i was released today. didn't you also spent time in a turkish channel only for a couple of days i know but what insights did it give you well if you speed that. we always read about the best history of talkers journalist they suffered
a lot in turkish republic the thing is i have learned personally that your government never forgets what you have did before even if you don't have any links with the good in this even if you didn't take any role in the military coup in the input they would forget your past what you did as a journalist and read one has a he which has a huge faith and he never forgets about the germans and they always punish you at the right time and after the porch they they use the pooch to punish their old enemies frightening and fascinating that. you were worked together with denise eugen at the tops where you work presently what was the reaction of you among yourself and your colleagues to the news that he had been released in july because of course in men's they relieved us news five it was also a very stressful time because of course it was very obvious that we had to support dennis went in prison sylvia. actions a free dennis movement in order to get him free so for us that was really. enormous
relief finally to be successful and to get him free but at the same time and that's something i'd like to add it is of course tragic that while dennis came free three other attackers joined as the condemned for life and now is a life sentence in jail you know it is kind of problematic of course we have to concentrate on tennis because otherwise you cannot if you want to get some for one free you cannot talk about turkey as a whole. about everyone sitting in jail but in the same time of course it is a problem that now everyone focuses on dennis and the other target still is that andrea somehow forgotten. short term what's your view on her or what can you tell us about the connection between dennis you joe his release and dennis you joe the person and the current situation in syria the war the incursion that turkey finds itself what's the connection between those two
. well at first sight i think there's little connection of course but if we look take the general picture of how and taki tries to mend fences on the one hand and wage war on the other hand. in a year or two years ago the main focus of two on was europe and so far as he described europe and particularly germany as the as the enemy at the s. as the adversary he stirred up public opinion against europe and germany. with the war going on in syria things have changed no he is in a very difficult position in with the americans arguing about the role of the syrian kurds. there was even the prospect of
a possible conflict between the u.s. and turkey in syria so there are lots of problems at that front and since. i think late late summer fall last year try to mend has tried to mend fences with europe and particularly germany and in his usual is his release is the result of the house he in some way being used as a bargaining chip against the backdrop that you've just described. i think not really i mean as far as we know and this is what both the german foreign minister and the turkish foreign news that said there is no deal struck. we don't know more than this because both foreign ministries and governments don't talk about if we look at the longer prospect if he was a bargaining chip for anything he is part of this normalization process which
turkey would like to see happening on the one hand and of course what the europeans my return and here i think we need to focus especially for example on things like the modernization of the e.u. turkey customs union which is something where there's a lot of money in for turkey and which could also really come as a relieve to many other financial challenges and political challenges turkey has to learn what do you say about this question is be much discussed here in germany about whether there is you joe has been used as a bargaining chip or what turkey wants for his release the german foreign minister says that there is no deal has been struck and i'm wondering whether he's telling the whole truth well the first thing i think the mission is i'm very jealous i mean because the country the whole country and the whole ministers the whole regrade you don't try to go from the government they try to you know risk to a journalist from
a country you know it's something that we have never witnessed in our country in the country other countries trying to put much more journalists in jail so it's really the thing that we need to add my first but the thing is there's a still he would focus he in the german government like one year ago. told to the press that took his government is getting away from being a democratic and the rule of low country he said it in may two thousand and seventeen and after the news has been released the same minister mr guppy will talk to the press that talks government is always careful about freedom of the judgments system from the government so it's really unbelievable and the things the details that we have learned about the news release it shows us that there. there was a huge negotiation and both or both go in and they knew that the this will be released the government had sent a private plane two or three days before this has been released to the plane we learned from d.p.a. yesterday and we know that mr benoliel the docs prime minister when he came to to
berlin before he met from work and he thought that i hope that the news will recently it will be so happy when he got released and one day later the prosecutor they prepared indignant and one day later he is released and two days later the turkish prime minister in munich in the in the security conference he told that they are ready to produce a common thank together with germany so unfortunately these small details shows that the news wasn't and then israelis were so happy about it really very very clear one of the. just briefly on the tank issue i think we are still quite far from that because. the commonly produced tank is basically. turkey once this one's the turkish tank and so they can provide some things to that but the main technical technologically advanced parts would come from iran mittal. and i think we are still very far from that kind of an agreement because at the moment
it's politically you can't implement you come to explain that and particularly why that campaign is open the question of the future but i think what is what this what you've just said shows is that it was surely political the whole process to put him to rest him to release him it was all political dealings and but but it all happens in the framework of what the turkish government wants at the moment normalization and gabriella i think he played that game with the turkish government by said by saying quote unquote in the pen. and just the system of turkey. was it ironic wasn't sad casting wasn't cynical i don't listen let's pick up on the point of normal normalization germany and western countries have criticized turkey's response to the two thousand and sixteen failed coup tens of thousands of people have been jailed many more have lost their jobs in
turkey is reported to be a world leader in the imprisonment of journalists. the authorities moved the site of the trial of the jo maria journalist from the palace of justice in histon bull to a high security prison at celebrity that's where denise you joe was held in pretrial detention. but the defendant supporters turned out again and again to protest what they consider the anti-democratic policies of the turkish government. which is the best known journalist among the defendants and he's been in jail for more than a year. another journalist at all times his brother and four others were sentenced to life in prison just hours after your job was released. how far has turkey moved away from the rule of law. the
big question how far is turkey moved away from the rule of law and michel i was just talking about the prospects of normalization of relations between germany and turkey gemma's to be a very prominent green politician with turkey's german roots has come out and said normalization of this point in time is absolutely not possible is he right to review. and i think that's clear to everyone here in germany that you cannot but it's not to the chancellor merkel yet but you know what she tries her best you know she is someone who never ever escalates that size of a to go ahead get ahead of developments she is very very cautious and also close it would be for her it would be completely it would be dangerous to. that adeline but i think at the same time everyone knows that he's a dictator and veges really cannot count on what he's doing next and what everyone wants is that more tourists come to come to the turkey i think that's.
germany to. issue its own inhabitants that they can. travel safely to the turkey because turkey really needs this money from the german tourists and many of the tourist stayed at home because they were fed of turkey and of course the whole issue often as you say they made it clear to the germans that is safe to travel to turkey i think that's the main reason why dennis was finally released and somehow. pop up business. move my we see meetings between anglo-american in the prime minister were seen meetings between the two foreign ministers they were very engaged in a two day ceremony you for him to lead together that sounds like normalization to me. well it sounds i mean that's that's what the politicians do when the thing is we as journalists we need to tell the realities i mean of course i would i would never ask or wait that my country would have huge problems with journey of course
these two countries should vote together they have a long time in history i mean like more than three or four million people living in germany or just people that's quite good the relations should be good but the thing is. we shouldn't get used to the politicians people crissy we should always force them to confess to talk about the realities i mean when then is is free we shouldn't think that everything is ok everything got normalized between two countries and we shouldn't tell the scenes of the turkish government what they're still doing shall we keep silence no we should still continue criticizing them but what's really happening nobody's especially in the german government is they stop criticizing what's really going on in the country like every a picture to buy d.p.n. on tolling agency which shows that at a tank produced by germany was used in syria and they showed that picture to the press guy of the german government and he said that we don't have any information
if these low part tanks are being used in syria or not but there are still pictures even denver is the reality they're trying not to talk about it but that's that's really the nest the face of the politics when you talk about realities just tell our audience a little bit about what the situation is like for you on the ground into you because you are of fiercely critical. journalist working criticizing the turkish government and living in turkey was like well it's not easy actually when you're sitting on your desk and try to type you're trying to type your article you always think that after a couple of days and when your when your story is a column is being translate them published in germany they can knock your door in the middle of the night if that didn't happen you don't feel yourself free to write everything but the thing is someone should do that i mean even my very. close friends are in jail and we should do something for them they're not outside and they can try to we should do the realities on the ground the problem is. they side with the whole community i mean they always think that we put that journalist in
the jail and ok that nobody will be able to criticize of actually putting some guns in the jail is the message to the rest of the media so the rest of the media are frightened not right then think about that we don't have any mainstream media in the country that's the biggest problem and talk you know michel to money is rigid tired to want a dictator. if we if we talk about dictators if we talk about a concept of the twentieth century i think. i think what he is doing is he's establishing and strong the authoritarian system with some democratic decoration so he insists. he's is having elections and he but by having elections he makes sure that he's going to win these elections untidy he you still have every time you say dictatorship and somebody comes along and says well but there there
are newspapers which are still reporting more or less freely but of course these newspapers are insignificant so that is basically what we today call hybrid autocratic hybrid offering tarion system that's what we have so and that leads me to that point where we were just talking about the normalization question i think this is the reason why there can't be any new normalization because what we have in turkey is the end is the total absence of the rule of law. germany is a state with the rule of law and that is why these two states are to a certain degree incompatible and this is the reason why i think in the future we'll have lots of problems precisely because of the because turkey is asking for the extradition of turks living in germany germany won't do it all these kinds of things so we'll run of new it into numerous problems because of that that mismatch
of the two systems where we've mentioned already the president that iran has ordered a military offensive in northern syria it's getting a lot of backing back home in turkey a lot of international criticism here are some images of what's going on. turkish president type heir to one portrays himself as an uncompromising defender of national unity and he will do whatever it takes to block kurdish demands for more autonomy. or to one has also vowed to crush terrorist groups that he claims turkey's sovereignty. turkish troops continue their offensive against a syrian kurdish rebel group called the y.p. g. but the u.s. considers the white p.g.p. key ally in the fight against what's left of the islamic state organization. the alliances among the states involved in the syrian conflict are constantly shifting . his or her to one leading turkey into international isolation.
so let's pick up immediately on my question rick or is there a president who i'm leading tookie into international isolation well he is leading turkey into a confrontation with the us but of the same time he comes on russia that's very obvious that no is some hall of the that he things but his biggest ally is put in at the same time of turkey is the pot. is the one who says what is happening in turkey has some haldol bay but that's at this point i think the best option. adlon thinks he has because he wanted to have a wall in order to somehow. have a good news for his own domestic base because at home they have a big economic problems and the economy is collapsing there's a high unemployment so he needed to somehow put himself into the role of a big war hero so that was all it was about to move how is turkey status as
a nato member affected by the crackdown at home in the military incursion abroad. series of is a values based alliance it's a values based alliance that is what basically the wisdom of the past ten years or so if we look further back into history of course we had examples like port hugo and. we had reason and turkey for that matter during the coup times nine hundred sixty seventy eighty so that as. nato has always been an alliance of members with. delta bowl credentials and matter but here what what we face is the problem of turkey and the us on two sides of the battle battle trends and syria and that is
a problem so if we will come i think the visit of foreign minister to lesson in ankara has led to some easing off the tensions between the us and there is an agreement that they don't want to confront each other on the battlefield but i don't know for ha long that lasts and all depends on how far and where one will turn his troops to so if he goes in the direction of men beach town in northern syria kurdish controlled with us soldiers i think will definitely see a confrontation because. the so-called adults in the room and washington. the ministers of. the dominatrix resident they are not willing to concede this kind of control because it's the last stronghold of the us in syria so that might then have effects after all and that on it might have effects after all also on
nato but we are not there yet i think even never risk it because in the he. knows that trump has no personal interest in syria and that he will not engage in syria but of course if the if one attacked us soldiers then being in much will just as adeline but no longer tolerate it and you know it and i think that's something i don't really understand i think he knows what trump is like because he is like trying to solve so he would never ever attack i think you know if i sell your rice but mind you add one did that mistake with russia ones hold on a russian x. and of the time to fight is he still i have no trust in this man this riad politique but lets see him and. well everything is based on the elections in the one where i was there it is right there in the presidential leadership presidential elections at the end of times you know and this is the
stepping stone the reason that our government and other army say is that the kurdish guerrillas they're linked to p.k. k. and their thirst organizations so we need to them all the stuff that's that's kind of understandable reason for turkish government but the question is recently for a couple of years this area is in the in the score discuss why today why the turkish troops today started a war there and it's all about the elections in two thousand and nineteen and all polls show that before the operation i.d.'s are free before that like before christmas we all saw that the poll showed that here's what's what around forty and they voted less than the last referendum because you want economic benefit with the economy cries of international problems they all creates really unhappiness in the country and he needed he needs and they should list rick three to be able to be like the emperor of offering we know that. today there was a there was kind of a. story in a turkish newspaper a calm said wrote that if he cannot win the first row in two thousand and nineteen
between two elections he can open the third song conflict zone in syria two to be able to win it so he can do anything to win that election because it's kind of at that a race for him he will he will be able to stay or not in two thousand one hundred springboard for ok when he began with you but i'm sorry i but that's one question i'd like to go off and it's sort of a little bit of a tangent and just ask you we talked we've talked in the discussion about how dependent turkey's on germany turkey is perhaps on nato membership how dependent is germany on. their hostages that turkey is a big nato partner and of course the refugee problem and the refugee refugee problem is number one problem of population here in germany and as you know that's right but the poll that had been published by build last week it's shows that did the horror the fear in this country is getting bigger and bigger about the refugees and that helped if he in this country saw anything happen in the country changed or influenced what's clearly going to in the government to it's ok thank you very much

there's a lot of law and so i'm ok i'm going to explain the trick i unplugged d.w. dot com the germans. played . this is the job of the is coming to you live from berlin no ceasefire for syria russia blocks up because you did humanitarian issues at the u.n. security council. this is a new wave of attacks in houston killing and injuring more people and also coming up making new pledges one hundred million euros to
a joint military force in africa sahid region body of a group the effort to stop migrants and militants. that's the latest from the burning now incredibly popular mexican actor guy got seven i did lights found by the parents of billings international film festival and he's here for the screening of his latest movie museo inspired by the most famous heist in mexican history. i'm on a thought she. the u.n. envoy for syria has renewed is urgent calls for an immediate cease fire in eastern huta near the syrian capital damascus this is a deal after russia block to u.n. security council resolution calling for a thirty day humanitarian truce moscow's demonic several amendments delaying the
vote until later today meanwhile this being more bombing by syrian forces today as warplanes shells the heavily populated enclave human rights monitors say government shelling has skin more than four hundred people since sunday including many children. even for those surrounded by day it is a crushing moment. for the father hulks his child one last time. for city is victims there is no dignity and value. should go. on for seven years government there is no relenting every minute bombs are dropped. monitor groups say more than four hundred men women and children have been killed since sunday homes and hospitals obliterated leaving doctors to handle matters of
life and there amid the ruins. we had to do one of the operations under the rubble. because we couldn't evacuate we had to do it under the rubble. the syrian regime says rebel extremist groups who control eastern are using humans as shields un security council has been debating a thirty day cease fire that allows for a deliveries and the evacuation of casualties. these are not terrorists showing up in these makeshift emergency rooms these are civilians they are ordinary people under attack by a barbaric assad regime that is bent on leaving eastern ghouta leveled to the ground with no regard for the four hundred thousand men women and children who live there but it was met with resistance to russia blocking the resolution. over the stage to achieve stabilisation painstaking work is necessary these parties
need to sit down and negotiate the parameters of the ceasefire there is no other way. but hope still locks within these beseech concrete canyons. by the young men it comes in the shape of a whole. slowly but surely they're digging their way to safely. the only escape from a torrent of poems must be an underground one. is the syrian doctor who worked in aleppo at a time when the syrian city was experiencing the same kind of bombing that we're seeing now in eastern huta i asked them to give us a sense of what the civilians that are going through. so it's like. literally hell in a little time out like back in aleppo like. three or four years. same
thing happened all the time with no different yeah. for five years so they are everything that maybe america medications that if you were fortunate or just sort of electricity and now this byproduct. attacks happening for the past ten days it's a disaster humanitarian disaster. now look at the pictures that we are seeing out of civilians but the syrian regime says that they are rebel groups based on day using civilians as human shields what's your response to that. actually it's not making sense at all the. cheap propaganda always used those claims back there was three hundred thousand. people and the regime also claims that
like. the fighters are using them as shells but it's not making sense at all because in aleppo back in aleppo there was well it's opened and people. wanted to stay in aleppo same thing happened for five years. there was world open and people want to stay in their hometowns. and not not not the fighters who are still rounding. the regime who is to run to get. preventing and they think or anyone to come in or out from uncle tom. i mean in two thousand and sixteen when i was in aleppo and yet a doctor was killed attack most of the it would seem and the washington. media pages claims that they managed to target and kill the tourist doctor so they consider it but you accept doctor is he as a tourist and say that he is treating tourists so it's not making sense at all it's
a cheap propaganda something even like and how many. talk about appearance so now you work as a doctor in aleppo and what you're seeing coming out of eastern widowhood new fic injuries of people and children what specific challenges doctors face in dealing with such a situation. main challenge is that the doctors and hospitals are the main targets all the time during the best three days more than twenty one facility have been targeted in. so it's the main target the main targets for the witch him and the russian are to be the hospital facility is the bakeries and the schools so that's the most the other thing that. those people and those doctors know for sure that the list alone. killing machine so they have to do so each time each injury over how many medications they can use before it's.
because they are afraid thinking all the time that they might run away or feel the bank. takes. everything. and wants to chit instead it's a very good you ition. it's such a difficult situation thank you so much for finding time to talk to us comes i'll cut the missive in dr who worked in sharing his thoughts with us and thank you very much. this article if it's among the stories making news around the wild. turkey has freed another german national held in prison for political reasons that's been confirmed by the german foreign ministry the identity of the prisoner has not yet been disclosed the person will not be allowed to leave turkey for now australia's devotee of promise of bonamy joyce's announce his resignation joyce had been under sustained pressure to resign after revelations of an affair with his

business bitcoin has managed to poke its head above the ten thousand dollar mark again if people who invested just a year ago sneak a peek at their digital wallets they'll see a return of some seven hundred percent impressive money doesn't grow on trees but you can dig up the virtual kind on the block. bitcoin is a digital currency and its value is determined just like everything by supply and demand and unlike other currencies central banks cannot influence the course of the cryptocurrency value through monetary policy bitcoins were first programmed ten years ago the developer was known only by a pseudonym toshi nakamoto to this day the program of behind the technology has never been identified the idea is that everyone who installs the bitcoin software on the desktop or smartphone becomes part of the bit coin network the digital
ledger that supposedly makes bitcoin both independent and secure is what is known as block chain a block chain is a ledger managed by many computers in a network which keep track of records in what are called blocks each block contains information about a transaction the block is checked in very fied by older computers distributed throughout the network and contains security calls from the previous block that practically eliminates the chances of manipulation and count a feat of accounting. at the moment bitcoin is still on a wild roller coaster ride in the markets but one thing is fairly certain after all the coins are issued bitcoin won't fall victim to inflation jago rhythm behind it won't allow the mining of more than twenty one million bitcoins and they'll all have been created by the here twenty one forty. financial advisor mock fraid of a she joins us now from our stock outs trio maka you're no earlier best to it bit
coy and i don't expect you to gloat i don't want to make you blush but. quite a billionaire. no not at all not at all i'm not in a not yet. you did it best back in twenty thirteen those so i expect the gains are pretty impressive what happens if because it goes back to zero as some people is that. it will never go back to syria of course it's a disruptive technology and bill change to vote definitely it has the same impact like the internet i think blocked and the big con technology has the same impact on the financial world like to smartphone on the telephone booths and not a telephone booth will not totally disappear but we don't use them anymore and i think it's. our financial system for the future in the next ten or twenty years what about these huge swings in the value of big oil in the fifteen percent
a day i mean do you sleep well at night when you see the news you see mccrea have no just kidding no seriously and i'm used to it it's like a tradition actually notice in the big cunt community to saying hostile hold hold hold your call it's cause i saw horrible horrible corrections and crash ninety percent even in the year two thousand and thirteen but it always came back and you could always speak and hire and i'm very positive that does technology will change everything it's a revolution we can't stop and now it's time to in the west in small portions ok it's nice of. you guys to hold on to your coins but what about people who actually want to spend those going to feel buying a house in florida which is possible with bitcoins what happens when it falls in value by fifteen percent the next day. yeah. definitely it's a risky investment right now but i think it's the future and you shouldn't invest more than five or ten percent of your whole wealth you just little steps and into
future we will see that it will be more and more normal that we spend crypto currencies in the future and i think the banks realize that and that's why they're so fighting so hard against the block chain and bitcoin in crypto currencies it's not just banks it's all countries china is cracking down on bitcoin what does that make you feel. i'm happy it was sort of already in two thousand and seventeen nothing happened you know what it was a short dip but you can't ban a correct on a decentralized system it's a possible cause all the information out on thousands of millions of computers all over the world you have to switch off the internet and that would be catastrophic so you can't do centralized system that's not possible they can try but that there is the great wall of china which we've all heard of venezuela as well as it introduced its own crypto currency the first state controlled crypto currency but it is state controlled i mean it's not decentralized obviously that exactly is the
opposite of off the ground idea of the blocks in technology and bitcoin so i'm not recommending to invest into petrol and gold petrol so on the one side it's very positive for the whole movement because you see now a centralised governments and institutions going into this market and they see the potential on the other side come on legacy and spend corrupt there's hyper inflation it's a socialistic common istic regime it will fail and we've shown that we noted with the german democratic republic in eighty nine briefly there are many other crypto currencies out there what makes you think bitcoin is the one that's going to stay there are many people saying it's going to be the vista of cryptocurrency. yeah test all longest track record in history it's now thinks two thousand and nine is rocking it got never hacked and it's getting exponentially more and more secure and i think it will be the gold standard of crypto currencies of approved occurrences
will come as well but bitcoin will always beat their acts the same like the blocks in technology it's here to stay free for us in shotgun thank you thanks for having me of course critical about more than just making a quick buck digital money has the potential to brave aleutian eyes the world of finance a machine learning makes huge strides we met a young man who's develop the technology to allow machine to machine payments. easiest to catch at the airport dominic shino twenty two year old programmer with big plans. the entrepreneur is flying all over the world to promote his digital currency he's put the code for us out in the public domain called aims to transactions especially those that in the future could be carried out between machines. on our mission isn't automation it's to make things
independent the way we make machines independent is to give each of them a digital wallace. and what we do then is get the machines to pay their one good example is the car paying its own parking fee in the future that'll all be sorted out by the car and its parking bay or its charging station or the road toll sounds or at the. groceries offer another opportunity for automation like a fridge that makes purchases automatically and pays digitally cryptocurrency could be the money of the future best known as bitcoin which is based on block chain technology she believes it's already outdated. but if i want to carry out a transaction i have to pay fees of between ten to twenty dollars and that's obviously more expensive than a bank and if you look at the machine economy where one machine is paying another we're not talking about larger transactions like ten dollars so we're looking at transferring micro payments a few cents at a time so you can only do that with the your. the e.u.
with a currency is based on what's called a tangle confirmation of a payment functions much faster and more cheaply than with block chains from competitors like bitcoin small sums are easily dealt with and she now claims it's just a secure. good thing about your size that we've got a lot of researchers on board almost ten mathematicians they're laying out the theory behind the tangle and they're validation it with solid proof which is what we're working on that. until now people are still shopping for groceries for the leaving it up to the fridge but cryptic currencies are bringing the days of machine to machine transactions one step closer. let's bring in our correspondents in singapore in frankfurt and greying and conrad booze and conrad is bitcoin already out of date. well obviously the competition is on the rise people like the young entrepreneur in. the government in venice where they're all
are in the mining business of crypto currencies and this variety makes it likely that the volatility of the prices of many of those crypto currencies is likely to stay that's why many people here are in places in traditional trading places like the frankfurt stock exchange are warning private investors of putting money in such crypto currencies you have also always to be prepared to lose all of the money you speculate with. what about the safety and security aspect andre that's a question to you asia's seen some quite scary examples that's right the thing is the selling point about block teens is that there is no centralized exchange that manages these transactions and your data for you and on top of that the detail is not take to your personal information so your transactions are anonymous yet visible at the same time so what happens is the digital wallet that you're given is assigned a public key so that we participants can transact securely privately as well as
credibly. the regulators the chomping at the bit of we certainly will be hit hard very soon could we see bitcoin dealt a blow another cryptocurrency. well the bigger this gets the more and the bigger the edge is for policymakers to regulate this but as we've just heard this is a d. central technology that's its big asset it might be very very difficult to control it in any case this sounds like this global phenomenon needs a global approach in regulation correct those birds there in frankfurt and under a hang in singapore thank you. and i start business with you are moved to a. move

a look first at what else is coming up. the world almost dream germany's most famous puppet theater two hundred seventy the. party and the wide range of american breakfast options is on offer at diner. and to the top of mountains the highest peak of the pilot minutes. he's a rising star of the international fashion scene design not the thirty five year old austrian has been living in milan for years even in the city of fashion where big labels such as a mani. have based he was able to make a name for himself he love fashion week has just started and presented his latest collection there it's inspired by his old home country he says it's good to be able to sort of your roots and here's what it looked like on the catwalk.
it's that look like paintings created yet timeless about short lived trends and opening highlights at milan fashion week. that came courtesy of thirty five year old austrian design talent are sure. even seasoned critics are convinced they welcome the breath of fresh inspiration to italy's fashion capital. this is young and fresh us who is really breathing new life into d.c. he takes elements from his own backyard and at the same time he makes it very much he's able to do this which is why i read so every election two thousand sunni vs the same time it fits perfectly into the modern world the location is an old school a shabby background chosen to create a stark contrast to the apparel the other says collections are always inspired by personal story or theme this time around it's viennese artists from the turn of the
last century. beam of fire to it all vienna is celebrating one hundred years of viennese modernism in twenty eighteen so i made it the theme of the collection that means taking inspiration from artists like egon schiele or gustav clipped from a dispassionate column and more and also wagner the wagner system right down to the architectural features or details from the furniture glassware own jewelry all of that was incredibly creative back then and that's what i wanted to put into this collection and it's a critical part of. art that so combines classical with high tech fabrics. he regards bodies and clothes as his canvas. restaurants ourselves all for example there's biscoe stress here is very fluid and just very feminine however i like very clean lines but then i combine it with something like this a feminine wide slim. then i suggest to wear it with a parka made of
a very thick wall printed with animal motifs. he creates his designs at his small studio in an old town apartment. besa studied fashion in london and in two thousand and five moved to midland to work for ga no armani. there he learned that you can only reach your goal with passion and hard work. after seven years he gave up a well paid job and took a leap of faith he founded his own label. and for the money you have to decide either you take a risk in order to completely develop your own vision or you can stay on the easy track but if i don't well i have to try to live once and there's no family without a bit of risk. and somehow i had enough self-confidence to take the leap. isn't want us to put. pressure on the success of his first shows he managed to
garner the praise of fashion journalists like susie. she was impressed by his talent and now considers him to be a rising star in the land fashion scene. other fashion houses are also keeping tabs on the young designer. in twenty seventeen the longstanding italian brand face made him their creative director here he has to deliver more mainstream designs the opposite to his own playful nisha label is absolute and it's very challenging to create in two different directions to fit something like fairy i think it works very well. it's important that the two projects don't neutralize each other creatively office and sources are both need their own track and i going to sign i going to sheena. is now showing his eleventh collection in. the critics darling has to prove that he's not just a fluke. newcomer ambassador is under a lot of pressure and it's also
a financial adventure but. this is i guess you put yourself under that pressure i'm proud of what we did i was happy with what we did anything for but i know it has to be better every six months i'm the one who puts the biggest pressure on myself of course there's always also. our betters ranges produced in small numbers mainly in italy prices for his sweater started six hundred euros though he still has to cut his cloth according to his measure of a skill his job at faith helps develop the also present their collection at the current milan fashion week. and we stay fashionable and continue with our roundup of cultural events in europe yesterday's express. an unusual runway show that alexander mackay a creative director of good she raised eyebrows at milan's fashion week. titled

programmes on german t.v. some of the water marionettes have even made it onto the big screen each puppet plays by the small family business now it turns seventy and even today both kids and adults alike love it. the whole world of it's the characters like jim bassett and luke the engine driver of kings who by their subjects ice cream. shines and daily tracking. it's a world of little stuff to quote. nature television day i use in one nine hundred fifty three live from the studio. it's come it's not going to. want to be on the x. ten strings something good and a little blue is all the puppet makers need to. use the front head string along with it right. is over the middle and index fingers we have to have flexible wrists
so we don't have to change hands after every move i guess we've got special property as handsome. as moshe is the surgeon aeration to run the thing he put on his first play at school aged twelve he says the story comes alive in the audience's imagination when they can see their own images that's why the narrative has to unfold slowly unlike most t.v. shows today. not long after world war two his grandfather vita emission wrote a letter to the x. book city who asking permission to open a marionette. it held its premiere in february nine hundred forty eight in a former hospital. with five to seven puppets he is above and the speaking actors below things got a bit crowded it was a family enterprise that has to one hundred over covered her first puppet at age
thirteen his wife was the costumes. it went on to over the shows for adults like court jesters where units can speak inconvenient truths they staged their own versions of socially critical plays like that old fashioned strictly opera. that. lennier who played pirate jenny for the opera's nine hundred twenty eight premier rode to the public theater enthusiastically praising the production and wished for her very own pilot january annette. for two decades the ensemble of puppet is to a german speaking theatres. the cast of characters personified such traits as lethargy rage green and envy. your run across many strange characters at some point in your life and i think the strange. the more you get inspired by them from the middle. class michelle's mother
alone crafted over six thousand men steering her lifetime. the heart and soul the treasure trove of the theater. you for if you asked her when she got the idea she'd say from the street so i'm sure some citizens of our discover they're looking like you know chest of puppets. for seventy years now the public has just been a family business like many marionette faces but it hasn't always been easy. to minimize the right. there was a very bad teacher she was so far ahead first time before i knew it now what did you do and it was done my mother always said keep changing nym's that's very important when you're not getting anywhere just grab the next knife. the minimum and first pick for most of. the magic happens once the marionette is
finished when it comes to life. and the marionette comes to life when it starts to move pulling the strings is an art in itself. when his head hangs down and his hands in front of his face like. this and this is how he crisis. and you pull the head off and to make you laugh or. decades the marionettes happen in chanting young and old alike it's made of wood and strings and lots of imagination. to start. this task. in a serious fifty kitchens one city will take you on a canary trip and prove that you can enjoy good food from around the world without ever lived and. in the german capital this home to people from the two hundred
different nations like oliver miller he moved to the german kept the from new mexico in the united states in two thousand in america you can get breakfast twenty four seven this was one of the things he missed most often moved to germany but it took another twelve years before he decided to open his own authentic diner in berlin where you can find the american way off breakfast. i think i wanted to live in berlin almost as soon as i discovered what was below the surface. as soon as i started to to meet the people here who are engaging in their own projects and that's kind of the thing i want to do too and it seemed like a great place to do it. all of a miller was born in one thousand nine hundred seventy two in san francisco the
youngest of two brothers seven years later the family moved to new mexico all of us started architecture and was active in the arts eventually he and other american artists were invited to participate in an exhibition in potsdam just outside. after finishing his studies in two thousand he moved to berlin at first on a temporary visa and with no real plans then he got the idea to open up our it was such a success that he branched out a few years later and open a restaurant but no new dyna it's modeled on the classic diner where breakfast is served at any time of the day. the inspiration for the restaurant actually came from going out. at clubs and the desire to have stays kind of food late at night it's a very common thing in america to have a diner breakfast in the twenty four hour diner at four or five in the morning with
bottomless cups of coffee. an american breakfast means first and foremost lots of combinations patrons that the not to diner can pick can choose from a variety of options the menu is centered around eggs for instance on toast all with hash browns around fifty combinations are possible aside from breakfast the dyna fries are classic hamburgers. i love especially. the idea of having unlimited among the coffee that you can get all the time that's it's great and the hospitals that they have the fear of the place the waiters are showing the earth and the friendliness is really really great. i left in the usa for. this is really quite authentic it's very close to an american diner and. this is not the city's fantastic very american but it's not feeling you get hooked on it and you keep coming back to smoke i'm going to do you know. what man you sense the american
breakfast apart from the european continental breakfast of the many cooked components. and. most of them can be fixed relatively quickly and easily americans call it. ok for standard to make them nice some think the american way the batter has to be right when the pancakes truncating little bubbles in the pan they're ready to be flipped. the knowledge diner also serves their own spiced breakfast sausage patters. it is fried with. chunks of pam and of course aches are an essential part of any american break first . the on trains are served on one single plate the sweet and the savory together.
when. one orders breakfast in american diner. the question of how you want your eggs is is an open one and there is no standard in america you have scrambled eggs or fried eggs or poached eggs it's really your choice the server will always ask how do you want your eggs and i love hearing. question because it really means it's going to be an american breakfast when you can decide how to see exactly what your ex. sees he's restaurant is a project that keeps evolving. the pictures on the walls were made by himself artist friends keeps changing them for new ones. the decorations are a hodgepodge of personal objects and mementos. opened his restaurant in twenty twelve in eastern district a principal back he lives close by and enjoys the neighborhoods diversity.
classes guests come from all over the world. suits but none. to name the other diner came from a conversation with my one of my old partners who grew up in hawaii. and actually i've never been know why but the name is hawaiian it actually means surf but not surf in terms of surfing but surf is like and it's the top of the wave as it's breaking. yeah we just thought ok that's a good name for for the place. at least twice a year one of them in a gets homesick confines back to the united states or sometimes even considers moving back in time someday maybe. we've made a dent or all that thought about karen takes her race off to try to enjoy. and that's made you hungry you can find this and many more recipes from always

a cold front is on the horizon. at an altitude of twenty nine hundred metres there's a passage in the rock that heads over to the huge and nato glazier basin with. inclement weather makes for a difficult climb the hikers rope up for the last stretch to the summit they will soon be crossing a bridge that turns the tour into an adventure. which ones will continue to stay always twenty metres from turning around out of the nonsense but. with numb fingers . and i see wins they slowly climb higher each step has to be chosen wisely. the group consciously makes headway. there isn't a soul to be seen for miles something the climbers welcome especially at the bottlenecks along the route. that sort of discipline.

a cease fire in syria and a strongly worded statement it demanded immediate access for aid trucks to instant kuta close to the syrian capital damascus this a day after russia blocked a u.n. security council resolution on a thirty day humanitarian cease fire. another wave of attacks and strikes meanwhile by syrian forces has rained down on the heavy populated. hundreds of people have been killed since sunday including many children. even for those surrounded by day it is a crushing moment. suppose. the hulk's his child one last time. for syria's victims there is no dignity in dying. should look. out for syria's
government there is no relenting every minute bombs are dropped. monitored groups say more than four hundred men women and children have been killed since sunday homes and hospitals obliterated leaving doctors to handle matters of life and there amid the ruins. we had to do one of the operations under the rubble and. because we couldn't evacuate we had to do it under the rubble or how does our office for the whole thought of them so i'm now. the syrian regime says rebel extremist groups who control eastern are using humans as shields the u.n. security council has been debating a thirty day cease fire that allow for a deliveries and the evacuation of casualties. these are not terrorists showing up in these makeshift emergency rooms these are civilians they are ordinary people under attack by a barbaric assad regime that is bent on leaving. level to the ground with no regard
for the four hundred thousand men women and children who live there but it was met with resistance russia blocking the resolution. over those days to achieve stabilisation painstaking work is necessary these parties need to sit down and negotiate the parameters of the ceasefire. there is no other way. but hope still locks within the beseech concrete canyons of three by the young men it comes in the shape of a whole. nationally but surely they're digging their way to safety. the only escape route from a torrent of poems must be an underground one. that is a syrian doctor who worked in aleppo when the syrian city was experiencing the kind of bombing that we're now seeing in eastern huta i asked him to give us a sense of what civilians there are going through. so it's like.
literally hell in a little time out like back in aleppo like. three or four years. same thing happened all the time with no different yeah. you see. for five years already there are lots of everything like that maybe america medications that was a few unfortunate i just sort of electricity and now this by public. attacks happening for the past ten days it's a disaster humanitarian disaster there now look at the pictures that we are seeing out of civilians that the syrian regime says that they are rebel groups based that on day using civilians as human shields what's your response to that. actually
it's not making sense at all the. cheap propaganda always used those claims back there was three hundred thousand. people and the regime also claims that like. the fighters are using them as shells but it's not making sense at all because in aleppo back in aleppo there was well it's opened and people. wanted to stay in aleppo same thing happened in a little talk for five years. there was well open and people want to stay in their hometowns. and the not the fighters watch the rounding. the regime has to run to get. preventing and they think or anyone to come in or out from. i mean in two thousand and sixteen when i was in aleppo and i but yes it's a doctor was killed attack most of the it would seem and the washington. media
pages claims that they managed to target and kill the tourist doctor so they consider it but yet dr is he as a tourist and say that he is treating tourists so it's not making sense at all it's a cheap propaganda something even like and how many. talk about of. the now you worked as a doctor in aleppo and what are you seeing coming out of eastern widowhood new fic injuries of people and children what specific challenges doctors face in dealing with such a situation. main challenge is that the doctors and hospitals are the main targets all the time during the best three days more than twenty one health facility have been targeted. so it's the main target the main targets for the which him and the russian are the hospital facilities the bakeries and the schools so that's the most sad and the other thing that. those people and those
doctors know for sure that they are missed alone facing this killing machine so they have to do so each time each injury over how many medication they can use before it's. because they are afraid thinking all the time that they might run away or filthy you think. if you're six or everything so. i mean most children that's very very situation. it's such a difficult situation thank you so much for finding time to talk to us homes are cutting to sit in dr who worked in aleppo sharing his thoughts with us and be a thank you very much thank you very much let me bring you up to date with some other stories making news around the want australia's deputy prime minister bonamy joyce has announced his resignation joyce has been under sustained pressure to resign after revelations of an affair with his former staff member came to light

a week after a special counsel robert miller charged thirteen draw sions of meddling in the u.s. presidential election. in your old leaders in the european union nations are meeting to decide how to fill the multi billion euro hole and its budget that would be left off to britain leaves the block is expected to be a shortfall of fourteen billion euros postbag said the leaders are discussing where to prioritise funding with migration terrorism and border protection high on the agenda. joining me now is brussels carson dog matis who is at that informal summit to get all brag that will leave a huge hole in the e.u. budget it seems what other proposals to make up for that shortfall. by germany and italy america have suggested that they would be technically open for a limited increase of the money they are giving into the system to make up for that
be called created by breck's it's a ten billion euros per year we're looking at that that need to come in but let's be clear it's only is facing a general election in germany we still have no coalition you know coalition government still in the making so let's focus on to the scenario that is more likely and that is a major cut of the e.u. budget something for in. the netherlands would be in favor of and that means less money for the two biggest things in the boches and that is agricultural funds and regional funds going to the different the local regions different constituencies of e.u. member states and europe it seems member states are divided on how to fund the bloc post regs and what are the major sticking points here. now the division lines here are a clear cut you have those countries who are net contributors so i
e those countries who pay the money from for example most prominently the netherlands but also germany and france and you have the net recipients particularly in hungary or poland who receive a lot of achree cultural funds now the dutch oven is made in a dutch a prime minister rather were right here made very clear that he wants to free up money and lower the e.u. budget whereas the other countries have said well they want to keep receiving the same financial aid and so you have basically a route between the stingy countries and those countries to receive money and to complicate matters at the end of the day you have the european parliament that also wants more money and that as a final save can needs to give a green light if we want a new budget by the end of two thousand and twenty and what of the poison by germany to link it to finance and going to the less well off countries in the block to fulfilling certain conditions including accepting refugees how did that go down
. as you can imagine it's the most controversial topic in eastern european states are are up in arms it's a it's a freeze the way it's a cold wind that comes here from the east of europe because they call foul play and blackmail basically whereas the german chancellor says look at this the solidarity in the e.u. is no one way street and basically you have all those countries who pay money into you in the to the e.u. hussein. oh this is great we have a means to actually make sure that even member states implement the things they have that have been agreed to that they play by the rules if they don't we have our tools or we would have a true with this new budget to force them to follow the rules. god martis in brussels thank you very much for that. and before that you summits got underway the e.u. commission hosted high level talks on fighting terrorism and stemming the flow of refugees through africa sahir region one of the poorest in the world and the e.u.
pledged to double its funding for a joint military operation set up by five countries in the region you can see them now on the graph where the security situation is fragile because of extremist groups and criminal networks helping the sahil has become a european priority because of the high number of refugees and migration from the region to europe. this is the front line in europe's bid to stem migration from africa thousands of migrants travel through it before they can take their chances crossing the mediterranean for years the sahara has been plagued by jihadist groups and criminal networks smuggling weapons drugs and humans across borders it's become a breeding ground for terrorists and a big worry for the e.u. . in brussels boosting development was a key topic at the meeting with leaders from the african region but the main issue
on the agenda was security the european union has pledged to double its funding so the g five said held joint force. a partnership of five say hell countries mauritania burkina faso mali share and chad founded to counter terror and immigration in the area. lives of already we are raising support for the g five joint force to which the e.u. was the first contributor last year we pledged fifty million euros and today we pledged another fifty to enable it to get into action. in the. security is a public good what we're doing in the sahara is not just to defend our country it's for the world security. i think it's normal that the international community should show solidarity with thousand less fight. for us other
international donors such as the u.s. and saudi arabia have also pledged financial support together our partners have raised more than four hundred million euros exceeding the meetings expectations until now the sahara region has relied heavily on european countries for security france alone has more than four thousand troops deployed in your area the g. five partnership aims to be fully operational later this year europe is hoping that will mean more military self-reliance and fewer european troops on the ground into hell. human rights groups fear the government is using bulldozers to raise the villages of the rocking people the high end state has been nearly emptied if it's muslim minority since last august when a military crackdown drove hundreds of thousands of people across the border to bomb that this these before and after satellite images show that dozens of empty
villages have been completely wiped out in recent weeks menards government claims it's trying to rebuild the region and human rights watch has expressed concern that crucial evidence of crimes against the muslim minority is being destroyed. what we're seeing in this area isn't just the knocking down needed structures what we're seeing is the complete clearing totally leveling completely a race these villages that were there there's no more landmarks there's no trees there's no vegetation everything is wiped away and this is very concerning because these are crime scenes and the evidence of these crimes that were committed there is being completely wiped away such that. there's no and there's no bears been no credible investigation of these crimes and so what we're talking about really is
obstruction of justice that this richard rijs from human rights watch time of a businessman joins me in a story that's a bit like digging for gold ben it is it is mining involved and some people do strike it rich emerita bitcoin has managed to poke its head above the ten thousand dollar mark again if people who invested just a year ago sneak a peek at their digital wallets they'll see a return of some seven hundred percent impressive money doesn't grow on trees but you can dig up the virtual kind on the block chain. bitcoin is a digital currency and its value is determined just like everything by supply and demand and unlike other currencies central banks cannot influence the course of the cryptocurrency value through monetary policy bitcoins were first programmed ten years ago the developer was known only by a pseudonym nakamoto to this day the program of behind the technology has never been identified the idea is that everyone who installs the bitcoin software on the
desktop or smartphone becomes part of the bitcoin network the digital ledger that supposedly makes bitcoin both independent and secure is what is known as block chain. block scene is a ledger managed by many computers in a network which keep track of records in what are called blocks each book contains information about a transaction the block is checked in very fied by older computers distributed throughout the network and contains security codes from the previous block that practically eliminates the chances of manipulation and count the feet of the currency. at the moment bitcoin is still on the wild roller coaster ride in the markets but one thing is fairly certain after all the coins are issued bitcoin one full victim to inflation jagow rhythm behind it won't allow the mining of more than twenty one million bitcoins and they'll all have been created by the year twenty
one forty. financial advisor mark freed today he joins us now from oust recounts trio you're no earlier best it bitcoin i don't expect you to gloat i don't want to make you blush but you would be quite a billionaire. no not a dog not at all i'm not and i've not yet. you did it best back in twenty thirteen those so i expect that that the gains are pretty impressive what happens because it goes back to zero as some people say. it will never go back to see cause it's a disruptive technology and will change to vote definitely it has the same impact like the internet i think blocked sharon and the big con technology has the same impact on the financial world like the smart phone on the telephone booths and not a telephone booth will not totally disappear but we don't use them anymore and i think it. our financial system for the future in the next ten or twenty years what
about these huge swings in the value of big corn though fifteen percent a day i mean do you sleep well at night when you see the news. you see my gray hair no just kidding no seriously i'm used to it it's like a tradition actually notice in the big concord unity to it's a saying hostile hold hold hold your call is cause i saw horrible horrible corrections and crash ninety percent even in the year two thousand and thirteen but it always came back and you could always speak up and higher and i'm very positive that this technology will change everything it's a revolution we can't stop and now it's time to in west in small portions ok it's nice of. you guys to hold on to your coins but what about people who actually want to spend those going to feel buying a house in florida which is possible with bitcoins what happens when it falls in value by fifteen percent the next day. it's a risk definitely it's
a risky investment right now but i think it's the future and you shouldn't invest more than five or ten percent of your whole wealth you just little steps and in the future we will see that it will be more and more normal that we spend crypto currencies in the future and i think the banks realize that and that's why they're so fighting so hard against the block chain and the bitcoin and cryptocurrency s. it's not just banks it's all countries china is cracking down on what does that make you feel. i'm happy if we sort of already in two thousand and seventeen nothing happened you know what it was a short dip but you can't. correct down a decentralized system it's a possible cause all the information out on thousands of millions of computers all over the world you have to switch off the internet and that would be catastrophic so you can't be a decentralized system that's not possible they can try but that's ok it will there is the great fire wall of china which we've all heard of venezuela as well as it
introduced its own crypto currency the first state controlled crypto currency but it is state controlled i mean it's not de centralized obviously that. exactly it's the opposite of off the ground idea of the blocks in technology and bitcoin so i'm not recommending to invest into petrol and gold petrol so on the one side it's very positive for the whole movement because you see now a centralised governments and institutions going into this market and they see the potential on the other side come on. spend corrupt there's hyper inflation it's a socialistic coming to stick it will fail and we are to be noted with the german democratic republic in eighty nine briefly there are many other crypto currencies out there what makes you think bitcoin is the one that's going to stay there are many people saying it's going to be the altar vista of cryptocurrency. yeah longest track record in history it's now two thousand and nine it's working it's got never
hacked and it's getting exponentially more and more secure and i think it will be the gold standard of crypto currencies of a trip to qantas will come as well but bitcoin will always be the same like the blocks in technology it's here to stay free for us and show god thank you. this is the final competition day at the byrne an international film festival and my colleague charlotte chisholm pill and god rocks down at the red carpet how do both a few human beings know what is going on behind you. yes we've just had the wild premiere of the new polish film ugh the stars of that film were on the red carpet behind us just a few moments ago they've now gone in to take a look we got and i were lucky enough to see the press preview just a short time ago yeah this is the last films to screen here in competition. it's
a comedy about a man who has a horrible accident and has to have a face transplant and having his face changed having his face taken off and put back on again it transforms him and can cause some sort of crisis in identity and i just have to say i'm really even saying the words face off right now and this is. going on between canada and germany causing me. to go on the record now of watching i'm going to lose to germany is very painful for me. but but this was quite interesting because it was a female director in a way addressing an issue of male identity and i didn't know what you think of this approach you know why i mean we've had a few female directors in the competition so far and they seem to be doing pretty well as to what i think that we are she can't tell you quite yet until a bit later on that says stay tuned we'll give you our our impressions ok scott i
feel your pain where you turn into the belly now how to get through the focus by women directly or what their chances like are they likely to win anything. yeah i think so i think we were talking about this just before the show and i think couple of some pretty good chances i yeah that's right there's a time feel good feeling in the air which means daughter of mine female director nora perry and that is very complex picture of what it means to be a woman it's very it's very rule it's very deep it's about motherhood is while and i was really moved by the film that i think that is one that is is really in for a good chance of winning a good chance when the top prize probably even the golden bear and for me i also mention three days in cuba also german film by a female director. reviews but i think particularly for the lead among plays the famous actors are only schneider in the film i think she has a pretty good chance to win best actress i was a stunning before and yeah i have pretty impressed i saw a story of
a woman on the edge but really beautifully told beautifully shot i think critically because she's a german actress here in germany maybe with a german director leading the jury tom tech for and she's got a good chance yeah that's right having not grown up in jenny she wasn't an actress that i was basically familiar with that i don't think that that's especially important i was really kind of carried along with the film just by just by her actions goes i was very impressed ok and the results will be known tomorrow evening is that right. that is quite right so make sure you watch as will be live here on the red carpet with those results and we're getting pretty excited yeah and also just a caveat i mean i'm almost always wrong with you. so please don't put any money on a. scarf and charlotte thank you very much. again to end this half hour. it was indeed i mean is coming up ahead a food bank in the west in general city in essence still has controversy by
deciding only to offer food to german citizens or what is this all about. and that in will coming up shortly here watching the news coming to you live from back. to cut. cut. cut. cut. cut cut. cut. cut. every move he makes has a global impact. but when has president putin lead russia during his tenure. is his strategy working. or has he miscalculated. putin must stand up again.
in forty five minutes on t.w. . freedom of expression. a value that old ways has to be defended and new. all over the world. of freedom freedom of art. a multimedia project about artists and their right to express their views freely. d w dot com the freedom. to. feel. the scars on food. the pain still tangible. the suffering for god. for cities edge by. the. kind of surprised they don't have a future. i really understand people who say they don't want to stay here.
but they also admire people who want to stay here and who decided to create something. in peace time. the people making it possible what needs to happen if tolerance and reconciliation or to stand a chance. dorcas cities or after war starting march turns on t w. being it's coming to you live from berlin i'm. a pleasure to have you with us our top story russia has so far blocked a u.n. security council resolution ordering an immediate thirty day humanitarian cease fire in syria the european union is also demanding a truce as a civilian death to it continues to rise in the damascus suburb of.
the here in germany a food bank in the west of the in the western city of essen has stirred controversy by deciding only to offer food to german citizens the charity's chairman said order food bank using single mothers and friends determined by the many foreign language speaking young men in the queue some of whom showed a lack of respect for women they said but other charity workers have criticised the decision for being discriminatory. leftover food for the poor and needy that's what a food bank is there for this food bank in the western german city of s. and has sparked outrage by deciding to refuse any more foreign customers the bank spokesman defends his decision. this kind of should also not funny this is nothing to do with racism we don't think that foreigners are more or less nearly than germans it's just that we want to make the distribution of food more fair gary schroen the food bank says that over the past two years the proportion of non
german customers has risen to seventy five percent it says especially elderly people and single mothers feel deterred by the large number of men speaking a foreign language the essene food bank gives out groceries and food to more than sixteen thousand people every week other food banks in the region are shocked by the decision. nobody comes here just for the fun of it and if you're hungry it doesn't make any difference whether you are a german or a migrant issues hit the headlines in germany and unleashed a debate on food banks and who really needs their help one off essence members of parliament gearing is urging the food bank to reconsider its decision. it's highly problematic to play off different groups of poor people in germany and the need and poverty must not be connected to one's nationality or possible and that's something banks i think read on the deposit and men shot and. mr tough an
indoor actually and over nine hundred food banks in germany give out groceries for free that would normally be thrown away more than one point five million people use the nonprofit organizations at least once a month experts estimate that sixty percent of them are foreigners. but when i'm drawing up political correspondent joins me from up on a mentors who is so prominent what is going on an initiative written only feed you if you're german sounds outrageous yeah i mean the tar file is a volunteer organization that hands out food that would otherwise be thrown away and the policy of the organization in fact is to give help to everybody who can prove that they're in need of it by showing that they are recipients of state aid if they can do that then they can register to use the service now this group in essence say that there's an imbalance in the people using their service
that three quarters of them are now foreigners people from overseas migrants most of them and they say that there have been over the last couple of years these incidents particularly where single mothers and older people waiting in the queue have felt uncomfortable surrounded by in some cases large groups of migrants some of whom don't see why they should wait some of them he said not showing respect to women so that's why they said they're going to have this stuff on taking in any more people into their register. not german citizens now this has become front page news here in germany what's the reaction been. yeah the reaction has been very negative indeed people have been saying this is dividing a poor and needy people into first and second class people one
charity worker has said that this is pouring water on the mill of the right wing poll populists and indeed even the social affairs minister catherine of bali has said that you know dividing people in this way is not compatible with german values and how all the food going to bank managers defending what's going on. here well as i said they say they're responding to a specific problem they also say that they see as a temporary measure and they wouldn't expect it to be in place for more than a few months through the summer so so far they've been relatively relaxed in responding to this wave of criticism even from within their own organization right simon young that upon a mentor city and thank you in the u.s.
news you just have emerged but now three florida school shooting that left seventeen people dead the armed officer assigned to the school waited outside the building during the shooting and did not confront the killer and this news comes as a dominant trump president is calling for tighter background checks and for some teachers to be armed. this is the coffin of chris hicks and hailed a hero for trying to stop the shooter at the florida school he worked at a u.s. navy veteran he was given full military honors. as families lay their loved ones to rest more details about the fateful day are emerging surveillance footage has shown that the armed officer on duty scott peterson never went inside the school to confront the gunman was radio at a point in time. and he took up a position where it looked like he could see the western most entry into the
building and they were he was never going to. peterson has now resigned and is under investigation. the latest the shooting has led to a raging debate on gun control the national rifle association the n.r.a. offered its solution to ending gun violence stop bad guy with a gun it takes a good guy with a guy school districts p.t.a. teachers unions local law enforcement moms and dads they all must conduct gather to implement the very best strategy to harden their schools including of fact they have trained armed security that will absolutely protect every innocent child is this country. advocates of further gun control are
demanding action be taken we are taking students protesting outside the white house this week said they were angry that school massacres have become commonplace and little has been done to stop them according to gun control advocates a group there have been eighteen school shootings since the beginning of the year i mean the public outcry president trump has endorsed a higher minimum age for buying certain rifles and tighter background checks for purchasers. he also rates are rated his call for some teachers to carry guns. your have in my opinion you want to have the shittiest because you should people are cowards they're not going to walk into a school if twenty percent of the teachers are gods or maybe ten percent or maybe forty percent that what i'd recommend doing is the people that do care and we give the bonus we give them a little bit of a bonus back in florida the family of slain chris hicks and like thousands of
others in the united states every year is coming to terms with the consequences of gun violence. and turning out to businesses and facials have announced details of a pioneering marine conservation plan then this is all part of an agreement amrita is extremely interesting with the island nations credit says for the first time to say shells has designated the seas surrounding its islands as protected waters safeguarding the fishing and tourism industry and receiving debt relief in return. for many this indian ocean island is what paradise looks like the remote atal is home to the world's largest population of giant tortoises and is the spawning cryan for a number of rare species. the seychelles government has now signed a bill restricting nearly all human activity in the waters around aldabra it's the result of a unique deal with its creditors debt relief in exchange for protecting biodiversity
. in a nutshell. the seychelles managed to. convert parts of its debt through debt swap loan agreement facilitated by the nature conservancy and this debt restructuring. and mabel for a set. amount to be repaid into a trust fund for to fund conservation related projects and activities the ambitious plan places thirty percent of the country's territorial waters under protection putting it way ahead of the global marine protected area target of ten percent by twenty twenty four years to put this together but what happened was is over that time period the seychelles was a poster child of what you do to come out of a debt crisis they were running positive budget surpluses they successfully footed
the currency they were used to do so their debt to g.d.p. ratio in the late two thousand is the seychelles was one of the world's most indebted countries according to the world bank sovereign debt peaked at nearly one billion us dollars today the finance ministry says it stands at less than half of. many fishermen except that the long term effects of the marine spatial plan will benefit the economy and their industry yet some fear the short term impact will be crippling to their livelihoods. chinese authorities have taken temporary control of private insurance group. the government says the group's chairman. has been prosecuted for economic crimes the company's made a series of high profile multibillion dollar foreign acquisitions in recent years especially in germany the regulators say on bank has violated rules that could make it impossible for us to pay back its debts the takeover is that it lasted
a year and is part of beijing's efforts to curb excessive debt. let's bring in andrei hangout asia correspondent who's based in singapore and dr first of all what's the company actually done wrong what are these economic crying. when it's not really clear what's but this whole thing it is one of those situations where the company has gotten too big to fail and it's now a track that unwanted attention from the government so it's part of the government's measure to. any excessive capital flows from leaving the country and given how and brown has been acquiring a lot of high value high profile properties overseas such as the new york so wall of a story would tell it's pretty obvious why they call how they got caught so how's this going to affect those foreign companies that export is the world of a story now run by the chinese state. you could probably technically put it that way but it's really not clear. has been ordered to sell off its overseas
assets we're not sure whether the officer is going to be one of them or not. this one yet takeover is going to rattle some nerves for a lot of these foreign acquisitions they will have to leave the downgrading first and singapore thank you. and the final competition day at the burnin international film festival is today and my colleagues seana chosen pill and scum drunks who have been watching films for more than a week now and they join me from the red carpet i know scott in a devastating above kind. in pyongyang but tell me about them better than i what you're going to get out. of on air i'm returning home they didn't. start crying. interviewing ariel you know i know what's up but we are here to talk
about films and there's a new there is a new world premiere of a documentary tonight that's right it's called songwriter is it a fly on the wall look at the british singer songwriter ed sheeran it's actually directed by his cousin so it's a very intimate look at his life his life on tour i still think if you're familiar with ed sheeran i'm retired i think scott could give us a quick rendition of one of his songs yeah i know. i have to think i'm not i'm not a fan i have to admit he is a ginger so i should show solidarity but i was just thinking about this ten years ago martin scorsese was here with his documentary about the rolling stones i would open the band and film festival shine a light rolling stones ten years ago now ed sheeran i think that says all you need to know about the climate of all of pop music clearly and share and it's i've received as i'm going to take up they have i think it could be one to watch i'm interested to see he's huge he's really popular now but he's don't he's boring i
mean it's going to be him drinking tea him writing boring lyrics he's always sleep it was only drink that i'm sorry that's all right go and see if you're a fan maybe it's something that maybe it's interesting i'm definitely give this a miss. the going to sound quality of solace and i love every shilling for coming up later tell us all. you know this film is in the aisles. and it's interesting because it stars to the really rising stars of germany we might remember from tony had lunch with the star of tony at which was oscar nominee and. a frontal wicki who's this one here is a big fan of a very attractive young german arbiter everyone here has been he's already in another film that's in the competition safer he's also won the shooting star award here at the back and i mean that meaning it's that this little thing he's won so
watch say i was very excited to see how this goes down a bit later on we can't tell you exactly what we think about the film itself because we've not had the world premiere yet instead i think we've got a report that can do the talking for us. this is not an action movie. and it's an unlikely place for a love story in the aisles takes us to a discount superstore in a small town where there's a new guy working the drinks section. to. christian hardly says a word but his coworker bruno takes a liking to him as does the unhappily married mother on from the candy department he's sweet on her two. glasses from angle films. yeah. but doesn't that what.
when marty on goes on sick leave and falls into a deep depression and his checkered past threatens to catch up with him. rising star of france called leeds this portrait of an eastern german working class life in a tale a very cautious home and it's got what. it is that you both have been seeing films for the past two weeks do you have a favorite as to what like when the big prize. we day we've been battling it out trying to figure out exactly which one would buy their nineteen films in competition the one that was my favorite safe feet and me a daughter of mine it's an italian film female directed very strong cost very interesting betrayal of motherhood and i think it in a hash tag me to climate i think that this really could be a woman's year yeah i probably agree with that also from
a betting perspective i think. daughter of mine is the best chances to win the golden bear but i'll really really like the iranian film here it is a male director male focus perhaps but also is a lot of very strong female characters and it's very very funny the fun of this film after bella and i was here i'd really like to see it with something i'm not sure if it got the golden bear but i really like it see it with something in mazing film and one of my best picks this year so we have to wait and see the results come out tomorrow shiloh to and scott enjoy yourselves and thank you very much for joining me from the red carpet at the billion dollar. ok now turning change of pisa norden college in southwest england has been creating nannies for more than a century every year the conner just seems hundreds of applications from just a few dozen places the training is expensive but the jobs can be lucrative graduates a highly sought after by wealthy families even by the royal. history
and tradition thrive in the city of boston southwestern england the waters have been taken in this picture a spa town since roman times so it's no wonder that it's home to the world's most elite school for nannies norman college watching students rush to morning class dressed in primula forms with their hair tied in a neat bun one feels transported to a bygone era. very much i think no one and i was so sorry go and i think the uniform you hold on to the history i made was also so. i think it holds on to all of. this. we we come had one of the one of the best jobs in the us which. is the uniform as such but if you take that away from us it's not part of northern
iraq as part of who we are. alexandra and many are in the second year and on loving every minute. they're not being trained to be just plain nannies nolan credentials are worth their weight in gold and even britain's royal family relies on norland alumni who don their uniform with pride landing a job with the royals is a career dream come true the students say they're not actively seeking a prestigious position. i'd have to talk with that i'd love to see the unknown set up but it's not necessary and i look for in addition it's not a primary. after graduation the students generally can pick and choose their first job but first they have to be able to afford their education and you'll fees that norland amount to some fourteen thousand euros the curriculum doesn't just include classes in quetta cooking and how to sterilize a baby bottle things like how to deal with proper oxy are also on the shuttle the
principal knows the modern nannies challenge. it's cyber security training from former military intelligence officers and that again reflects. some of the needs and demands of society today the implications of for example social media usage giving away for example geo location is particularly because i often go on to work for quite high profile or high net worth families newland ninety's have long been seen as the ultimate status symbol and are in high demand among the global jet set to meet from hollywood stars to russian oligarchs everyone who can afford it wants their offspring minded by a very british nanny. the increasing breakdown of gender stereotypes has resulted in new interest from students. this school year so it's a largest ever intake of men charles is one of seven.
friends of first and understands their bit confused because obviously it's not all that popular thumbnails right now but they found they found it interesting they were quite proud and they'd buy it may said. regardless of the number of miles with them. and the starting salary may be one winning argument graduates can expect to earn an annual fifty thousand euros once they pass through the college gates for good not a bad outlook and worth stepping out in full time full. time now for an update on the winter olympics in south korea hecho florists sports says joins me now with the highlights from chunks high and they can only be one highlight is lies jimmy's concern a huge shock in ice only it was it was a massive game massive result for for germany they got to beat canada which is the
. number one ranked team in the world and they were able to beat them to reach their first final ever. it was in the old biter of a game we had the germans go up three nil in the by the second period of the game but of course this is canada you cannot write them off their best and mention their the number one team they have won gold in the last olympics so they were able to pull the game back pulled it back to to a four three when it was the final score but of course germany was able to get that win historic win for the germans as mentioned is their first final now and germany was the lowest ranked team to to go into the semifinals so this is a methodist it's a massive it is and in fact i know you know scot drug guru is covering the body law there but he was completely devastated by this result because he's canadian no one had ever thought that the girls the girls lost yesterday as well against the u.s. they got silver and now there's another shocking result in hockey for canada which
is. a favorite of ice hockey is actually now they're struggling for many big big ladies who met face to face next well now they'll be facing another favorite in this case it's the controversial team which is the olympic athletes from russia team ah you mean russia let's say let's say that. facing them who. leads from russia were able to be the czechs three nil they swept the czechs actually. needed to open up the score them bloody got the second goal we see celebrating his goal and chuck was able to score that last third goal his fourteen goal in his career so as mentioned they're going to be one of the favorites in coming into the final their last nettle with a bronze back in two thousand and two may not sound that amazing and as mentioned i mean germany they were able to beat sweden in the quarter finals who are currently
the world champs. now they beat canada which are number one in the world so i mean there's there's no stopping to germany so far with you what happens if you have a really exciting game because of course as you said of that team from russia as it was so kind of big favorites and ice hockey but so that if he's going to sit there what olympic what do you pick athletes for michelle but they've already got to go to their first goal actually they've got to through a. fifteen in the ice skating event she actually set a new war record here we see her dancing and look at just those moves she got an amazing world record of eighty two point nine hundred two in the short program which is also amazing because it was one point thirty one points clear of her fellow russian if it ever so she had a world record and that's just amazing to see this resolved there's a living their first goal let's hope or well we'll see what happens against germany

a cease fire later today so far russia has starfleet opposed it but reports suggest a compromise might be within reach because there were there the difficult even for those surrounded by day it is a crushing moment. of sober. father hugs his child one last time was sober. for city is victims there is no dignity in dying for us. and for syria's government there is no relenting every minute bombs are dropped. monitored groups say more than four hundred men women and children have been killed since sunday homes and hospitals obliterated leaving doctors to handle matters of life and there amid the ruins. of a long we had to do one of the operations under the rubble and i'm unable to her
because we couldn't evacuate we had to do it under the rubble of our own hands on the obvious but on health problems on the. the syrian regime says rebel extremist groups who control eastern are using humans as shields the u.n. security council has been debating a thirty day ceasefire that was along for a deliverance and the evacuation of casualties. these are not terrorists showing up in these makeshift emergency rooms these are civilians they are ordinary people under attack by a barbaric assad regime that is bent on leaving eastern ghouta leveled to the ground with no regard for the four hundred thousand men women and children who live there but it was met with resistance time russia blocking the resolution. over those days to achieve stabilisation painstaking work is necessary these parties need to sit down and negotiate the parameters of the ceasefire. there is no
other way. but hope still locks within the beseech concrete canyons of three by the young men it comes in the shape of a hole nationally but surely they're digging their way to safety. the only escape from a torrent of poems must be an underground one. so while the security council plans to vote today on an amend it serious cease fire resolution after russia blocked the original draft put forward yesterday want to take you now where to moscow to our correspondent me out of sorts who is monitoring that story it forces me oh let's go back to yesterday wide at russia reject the original draft resolution. i think it's hard to tell because if you come if you compare the first draft with the second draft there's no not that much of the difference i think what is very
important to russia is just to show that they're really a global power the global payoff and not what president obama wants a just a regional power that's something that. is something you get that that was something that really hurts president putin here trying to humiliate him and someone who's very close to mr putin he told me once that putin has not forgotten and i think the second reason why they may not say yes to a compromise some sort of compromise if that if if this is a compromise is that they want. to gain days or to make sure that army has as many days as possible to to win the battle on the ground all right so they want to buy more time for the forces to continue their air campaign what kind of compromise could we be seeing today that could potentially
persuade moscow not to use its veto again. well as i said before i don't think that this is really a compromise because when you compare the results number one with the one that we have right now that there's not that much of a difference let's be realistic russia's going to continue to support a president assad and his army and the security council came over and over again just a couple of years ago the whole situation reminds me of the situation aleppo and you'll remember i think this was summer two thousand and sixteen that a security council came over and over again that there was there were many of resolutions but this is nothing to hasn't change anything on the ground so in the end president assad and his army took control of aleppo and in the end we may see something very similar to that right now aren't now let's talk of course about that
catastrophic or humanitarian situation in east ghouta we have been inundated by these just heart heartbreaking footage of people carrying dead children how russian media were porting on this said bombardment well as you know those this is a holiday today in moscow and russia it's a defender of the fall and day the situation in syria is not a big issue here in the news and you won't hear in the state controlled news that the weapons used in aleppo used in ghouta that those weapons came from russia you want to hear that in russia raise our source reporting from moscow thank you. all right i'm going to tell you now about some of the other stories making news around the world. the u.n.

of the european union are meeting to decide how to fill the multi billion euro hole in his budget that will be left after britain leaves to block there's expected to be a shortfall of fourteen billion euros post gregg's it the leaders are discussing where to prioritize funding would migration terrorism and border protection high on the agenda. today is the final competition day at the berlin international film festival and my colleagues are charlier to kill and scott roxboro are still down at the carpet you can't beat them away from that credit card great get the senior guys for fails a competition are for women directors are they likely to win an award.
we are very hopeful this. woman will win an award the golden bath one of the films the film that i particularly have my money on it's a film called daughter of mine. is an italian film by laura at this very and it's painted a really complex very rule picture motherhood and womanhood as i was extremely moved by the film i have to say yeah i think that's of those four of the four films directed by women in competition i think that's probably the strongest but there are two others that could could pull off a prize maybe not the golden bear but maybe on the other awards there's muckle polish film which is a look at a man who has a face transplant and has questioned his identity it's a comedy it is very funny and also is interesting to see a woman looking at sort of crisis and male identity that's an interesting take but the film i think could definitely come out with some awards is the film by a german director here and three days in cuba on this a black and white movie and it's
a look at the last interview given by rumi schneider the famous german austrian actress that i actually as a growing up not in germany i wasn't familiar with the actress in this film really does carry a paints a picture of what it was like in actually what turned out to be the the final years of this woman's life yes and the actress moneyball i must very famous here in germany this is really a parade role for her i think she's got a really good chance of pulling off the best actress prize here in berlin all right and there is a german film being screened a little later on tell us more about that. yeah this is in the aisles. it's sort of a romantic comedy set in a huge supermarket and there the main characters are forklift operators it's the woman you might know the actress sandra hello she was the star of tony at mum and she's playing opposite frontal good steve who sort of the star of this barely not right in the to go. petition films here he plays
a very silent closed off man and i have to say he found a fan in this lady he could later he's dropping me into he's sharing that. i like this that is somewhat attractive man. being a german joaquin phoenix i'd say yeah he's in the press conference just a short time ago we were that he was making jokes that how hard it was to drive that drive that forklift it was pretty funny i we can't tell you too much about what we actually think of the film there because we haven't had the world premiere yet so we can't be there want to spoil anything we do have this report take a look. this is not an action movie. and it's an unlikely place for a love story in the aisles takes us to a discount superstore in a small town where there's a new guy working the drinks section. to. christian hardly says a word but his coworker bruno takes

a proposed ceasefire in syria it would stop the bombardment of eastern ghouta for thousands of people are trapped and hundreds have died since sunday. are for now thank you so much for spending. this is a story of one man's wounded pride and his revenge a man who experienced russia's loss of superpower status and who wants to restore his homeland to its former glory. in twenty twelve let him or putin was elected russian president for another six years. the former k.g.b. agent had now already ruled the country for twelve years during which he restored
order to a country facing disintegration silence the opposition and brought the media into line but the pomp of the inauguration ceremony was deceptive the election had left putin weaker than ever before. the largest demonstrations since the collapse of the soviet union spread across the country the protesters condemned alleged election fraud and called for putin's resignation falling oil prices were causing widespread economic hardship and corruption was rife putin himself was accused of becoming one of the richest men in the world through graft. the ruler in the kremlin was very worried and hid himself in his palace. and he
started to fight back using a tried and tested method accusing the west america and the cia of conspiring against him. and we do have serious concerns about the conduct of the elections russian voters deserve a full investigation of all credible reports of electoral fraud and manipulation and we hope in particular that the russian authorities will take action on the recommendations that come forward putin had heard this statement by the american secretary of state on t.v. the night before as have most of russia he called it a declaration of war. due to him. and you did signal solution is.
to maintain his power and mobilize the russian public hootin wanted to make russia a world power again and recover the status lost to the west twenty years earlier with the collapse of the soviet union but in order to achieve that he first needed to reconfigure his own power structures. he shut out liberals and surrounded himself with hardliners many were either former k.g.b. agents like him or loyal. to his friend. a former k.g.b. officer a wealthy businessman and pious creditor joined the inner circle that unofficially advises the russian president. the bomb. ridded the sort of asian of the sort system
it seemed that there were no any grounds for more i just want to kill struggle. somebody decides that he possesses the older troops which is truce to everyone that is them in a sion and that can lead to f. show era over new war what there were you know i just logical warm or cold war but there. this new cold war is of course directed against the winners of the previous one against the us and its armed extension in europe nato. since the collapse of the u.s.s.r. in one thousand nine hundred ninety one the transatlantic alliance has encroached on moscow's sphere of influence poland romania and the baltic states which were
occupied by soviet forces sought nato as protection. nato carried out a series of large scale maneuvers in response to putin's nationalist rhetoric a rhetoric that worried his neighbors. the united states pushed ahead with plans for a new state of the art missile defense system throughout eastern europe putin saw that as an unacceptable challenge to his quest for power. in june twenty twelve he confronted the western alliance at the g twenty in mexico and economic summit that brings together heads of state. behind the scenes these summits give the participants a chance to weigh each other up to negotiate and to display their own strength a modern equivalent of the battle grounds on which the great powers used to meet.
this is the military and political system of the western world from this point a few if you know the threat of communism this appears this simple question is why why that talk is growing. hooten hopes nato's de facto leader would listen to what he had to say he was meeting u.s. president barack obama on the international stage for the first time three years earlier obama had signaled a desire to reset relations with russia. it was a tense meeting it was not for me anyway putin lectured president obama at length about all the misdeeds of the united states over the years going back to the clinton administration in nato enlargement president obama always engaged mr putin a spirit of logic and the logic that we saw in the relationship was not necessarily the same logic that mr putin saw when some border is trying to assure you this i
convert my tanks say come with my you know military equipment to your big hero art but because that is not against you would you believe and then there was also i think a geo political argument that the west should take advantage of this time to move east and to make sure that poland and hungary and a stone are for ever outside russia's sphere of influence free states should be able to say we're in nato we're not in nato we're in the e.u. we're not in the e.u. who is russia to tell them how they should behave. the deployment of the missile defense system was no longer negotiable that's what obama told putin the press conference was frigid. it was good to be. committed. but he also discussed international that all interested parties. in trying to find
a resolution to this problem. from obama's point of view how important was putin the leader of a country with a gross domestic product that barely matched that of spain. the meeting ended and i noted deep discord. they did not concede that russia the equal partner goot norbit good but equal. did to me over behavior there was a clear this time who for the few nicko of superiority. and kind of fear and all. what you languish to show this is your almost like me so if i did not feel that there was a good personal relationship between president obama and water near putin that for some reason that relationship was straight and the result was that
i think in part it contributed to a breakdown in the relationship between our two countries. put is very russian. there's a thing inferiority complex about how the west doesn't take us seriously they see as says the kind of retarded little brother that they can just kick and insult all the time they had been a great power. that was on par with the u.s. that was calling the shots all over the world and now people don't even listen to them. not only was the west not listening to russia it was also moving closer and closer to russia with its bases in summer two thousand and twelve the syrian president bashar al assad an old ally of russia faced an uprising his
opponents received weapons from europe and the u.s. . there was no doubt in putin's mind that the west had ordered a regime change as it had done in two thousand and three in iraq and in libya where the deposed president won more gadhafi had just been killed. when vladimir putin got a hold of the video of khadafi being killed lynched in the streets. he watched that video on repeat he just watched over and over and over again. and apparently he did the same thing with the video of saddam hussein's execution i think he takes these things very personally i think putin was watching it to understand that should someone stand up to the united states should there be
a real fright real confrontation well should expect no mercy. the events of the arab spring also reminded putin of the demonstrations against him that had taken place a few months earlier in order to counter western ambitions in syria he threw his weight behind a regime on the verge of collapse. it's. two years later ukraine twenty fifteen. in the capital city kiev the population rebelled against a corrupt and pro moscow leadership the crowds loudly called for closer ties with the european union.
even worse for putin the americans were there and obama adviser personally handed out food to opposition activists on my town square. or to the putin believes that after the fall of the soviet union the united states should have committed itself to never integrating ukraine into the western camp. certain to have a coup d'etat. estate in kiev sir some people would prefer to interpret it as their current over. reaction of the whole population of ukraine against corrupted authorities and this is a false description. february fifteenth everything came to a head the russian hockey team played
a decisive match against the united states. in ukraine the protesters opposition was increasingly undermining the government it was a nightmare for putin who feared that the country would soon turn towards nato which would place the alliance just over five hundred kilometers from moscow. to the russian president's great anger the u.s. one in the penalty shootout. put in called a meeting of his security council in moscow his plan was to invade crimea which was part of ukraine its population is russian speaking and there is a russian naval base on the peninsula. but a military invasion of a european country was not an easy step to take. put into liberated and sought counsel. in the upper echelons of power the hardliners demanded that he
take the offensive. one of those making the case was constantine malouf a of. a young only garc and an ultra nationalist champion of the great christian russia. that was she's decision. and i can again you know just to tell you what i heard that it was not easy and of course here you know death was debated and to realize there what would happen after and what would be their reaction from from the west from our from americans who sponsored. this in kiev and of course you do not dare to oppose him and gave the green light.
on the twenty third of february put in attended the closing ceremony of the olympic games and three days later the crimea awoke to find itself in the hands of russian special forces went landed during the night. one sovereign state ukraine had been invaded by another russia. when he went into crimea we saw that this was a potential. but it was a surprise that he did in the way he did his goal is to keep ukraine destabilized and to make sure that it never completes any kind of western orientation he's not as we like to think of him especially here in the us a grand strategic thinker and chess player he plays blackjack you know it's a very high acceptance of risk and that's a very russian mentality there's a russian word called a voice which is like basically
a wing it and see what happens. obama called putin and talked for more than an hour threatening him with sanctions if he went ahead and annexed crimea but who didn't ignored the threats from the west and went even further. in the summer of twenty fourteen russian troops without uniforms started arriving in donbass eastern region of ukraine to support progress and separatist rebels against the new government in kiev. it started a dirty war. feel. feel feel what do they want five hundred miles from moscow they wanted us to stay and see how they would kill our people there so we have to protect ourself and it means that to protect our
interests near our borders the west suspected malouf a.f. of financing separatists and imposed sanctions on him. for putin and his entourage the war came at a price. nobody knew was a make or libyan mission should look you. know the main focal room for the community was up there it would election of some around fifty people from putin's circle were banned from traveling to the west and their assets abroad were frozen both europe and the us imposed heavy sanctions on oil exports banking and armaments. stupid. enough to put in front. of.
us. to keep. in feb twenty fifth scene put in finally agreed a ceasefire negotiated with the western powers in minsk he had the upper hand in a conflict that he could ratchet up at will he had ensured that ukraine wouldn't join nato or the european union in the near future but at what cost. may twenty fifteen saw great celebrations to mark the seventieth anniversary of the soviet union's victory over national socialism. but the pomp was deceptive. western sanctions had had an impact on the economy the ruble had collapsed and even the military budget had had to be cut back. and had promised the russians glory but they had paid dearly for that vision. prices were rising poverty was increasing
but he remained deaf to the worries of russian business leaders. what mainly preoccupied him was the fact that he had become a pariah at the head of an ostracized state. the refusal of western leaders to participate in this important anniversary was a devastating humiliation worse still the man who wanted to rebuild russia as a world power was even excluded from the g eight the summit of the world's leaders . he fancied himself a great world leader when he was denied a platform around the world and when people wouldn't meet with him i think that had an impact. so putin was left with only provocation to remind the world that he at least still had a powerful army. for
the first time since the cold war russian jets buzzed american ships in the baltic . but that brought putin nothing but contempt from the president of the world's only superpower i think the overwhelming majority of the world rejects russia is a regional power. that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors. not out of strength but out of weakness see crazy you know if you play basketball too much the you know those who look at the globe the future read anything in the history about starting growth you know he really believes that we have a regional power the only power in the world we share is equal.
power minister power. to the united states of america at least it would be wise even if you think so don't tell it then yes but i see you don't just look at this look at the all you you do in your little in the neediest in using e yeah it is it didn't i she's good for you to sit still sort of middle of shit would you do you so into your c.e.f. b.s. and he got stuck. at the end of summer twenty fifteen in his luxurious villa on the black sea putin suddenly seemed quite relaxed. he had understood that direct confrontation was not a good strategy for breaking out of isolation and he had a plan. the time for revenge become. the order to win the war going to service the swatter was what it really.
is i was in there with the most of the got a war hero and first of all he pushed ahead with a daring move in syria. putin ordered a massive intervention in support of bashar al assad's regime. hundreds of missions were flown to destroy any resistance against the syrian dictator in months of bombing. the west was surprised but nevertheless allowed putin to carry on not without its own all teary or motives our calculation was that russia risked being in a situation where it was stuck like afghanistan where over time it would have to spend more and more resources to prop up assad and thus far russia has not become
unfortunately exhausted by its intervention in syria. although the russians wanted to avoid getting bogged down in syria and their intervention enabled the us said regime to fight the rebels the war in syria was also a war of images. during the syrian conflict putin saw how much he could use communications for his own ends . when your military budget is ten times lower than that of the united states then it is a weapon of the week so he asked his new chief of staff general valery gas him off to come up with a new military doctrine but we knew was coming for sure all i want to ship was worth it there is most definitely that if you will to do it sure as a musician of history if it is with issues you suffer with should not should they
get us to move doctrine is one of hybrid warfare subversion espionage propaganda and cyber attacks are designed to influence the shape of an opponent's political and social landscape. mission the most important one i think is is information because it never stops if a mission was there is twenty four seven. you've never stops. that information was. the west primarily the united states of the designated the enough the story or even the many pushing your stupid computer. the way you look dozens of numerous guests hootin celebrated the success of state television which he had created to spread russian ideas throughout the world because first of the i knew smug was the word nearly every so stuart's terrorist threat in the state. of the if you just see me me one of the thirty
you see when they go to this leads to but almost doesn't. wash the rules. to solution it. just like rockets and pipelines russia today is seen by moscow as a strategic instrument. russia today is broadcast in five languages to about one hundred countries. on the internet the technology at the heart of russia's strategy more people view its video clips than those of c.n.n. and the b.b.c. . are you. a primary target of russia today is the us. it's where the station has its most important bureaus worldwide.
new report shows viewers are leaving the mainstream media by the garage so it looks like people are turning elsewhere to get their news for example a couple days after i had started that there was a protest movement here called occupy wall street and i had covered that we were. we covered actually extensively. police brutality running wild in new york we blew it out of proportion and now i realize why it's there a jury of. americans protest and americans themselves voicing their distrust of the system of american democracy and capitalism and americans themselves saying that the system isn't working. guten had understood that public opinion was the achilles heel of western democracies.
in the early summer of twenty sixteen he surely had this lesson in mind when obama secretary of state visit him in the kremlin. well this president were very precious for the opportunity to have a serious conversation about serious issues. with john kerry dampen putin's hopes of a relaxation of sanctions if he did not change his policy in ukraine and syria. or worse still he announced the imminent completion of the missile defense bases behind russia's borders but what worried putin even more was that six months later he might be dealing with an individual who was even more intractable when he had publicly accused of sending a signal to his opponents back in two thousand and eleven putin's red rag hillary clinton the firm favorite to win the twenty six thousand us elections he's
a very arrogant. person to deal with like many ways he is somebody who will take as much as he possibly can russia is trying to move the boundaries of the post world war two europe we've got to get nato back working for the common defense. faced with this prospect putin was surprised to see an outsider appear on stage a populist who position to himself as well disposed towards russia and critical of nato you know hillary likes to play tough with russia putin looks at her and he laughs ok he laughs russia doesn't like isis any better than we do would it be nice if we actually got along with the russian you could knock them out together would not be a good. choice for us was between. who's clinton made the beach and. the street my me of course. of course. and his money there is no
chance the thing she was out of the katie was a no fly zone in syria to me that was in. an invitation to a shooting match between the u.s. forces and the russian forces in syria because clinton was so recent for because soul train and this now conservative style that i'm now the leader of the go global war the measure of a rival province called russia who is you know doing something wrong of course we prefer truck. the type of hybrid war was launched against hillary clinton russian hackers pretending to be americans generated more than a million hostile tweets against the democratic candidate. over several weeks on facebook their messages were shared with one hundred twenty six million users. the pro russian media spread rumors and misinformation. the following video
alone got nine million hits. on what even the ninety six percent of the claims charity went to themselves the rest of their charitable donations from that year went well that there was many that as a class terry that failure that same territory made us that one hundred thousand dollars a year so much surprised to see how frightened the so-called west became receiving just seeing go on a different channel for from the eastern front from russia. and putin kept going what followed next was what the k.g.b. calls active measures. a total of ten advisors and associates from the trump team were approached. the american intelligence services were facing an unprecedented scenario. in any what they call active measures would call covert action the united states
efforts to influence an election or to influence the way a foreign government acts is going volume an element so i can say with certainty the rush. to be looking for people. we've seen information on the edges that suggests that perhaps some people are on the top team they've been engaging with the russians notion that hey. we can help you with information that we have on hillary clinton and your political opponents if in turn you take the idea of ukraine off the agenda you know as we can make a deal here. at the end of august twenty sixth seen three months before the elections putin's hybrid war was stepped up even further hackers gained access to the clinton team's computers to steal e-mails containing content that compromised hillary clinton. and the use the. voting machines were also
the target of attacks the heart of american democracy was under threat this time u.s. secret services were no longer in doubt as to who was behind it our intelligence community was able to conclude that there was a serious effort on underway by russia to interfere with the election they say that vladimir putin directed an information operation against the united states elections and that his goal was first to weaken american democracy to get us to fight amongst ourselves and second to increase the chances of donald trump and decrease hillary clinton's chances. the obama administration was perplexed by this unprecedented attack how do you defend yourself against it. a cyber attack on russian infrastructure is was under consideration. you spend a lot of time on to decide whether there should be some. price paid for what
they've already done some punishment. that last piece we thought could wait and we could think we could work on it and think about it the most important thing was to get them to stop and prevent them from doing it again. the white house decided to treat the case with the utmost secrecy. because we thought the main russian objective was to create doubt and accelerate a crisis of credibility and legitimacy about our institutions we have to be very careful in how we talked about this in public because even if we had said the president had said this is what they're trying to do but they won't succeed it still might have created the very doubt russia was trying to so they thought that hillary clinton would win under any circumstances they didn't want to. develop a whole new political issue last sickly obama you know it was paralysis by analysis let's talk about it let's think about it let's let's get it just right you know
it's the exact opposite of putin who doesn't consider all the strategic implications they want to consider every possible angle every possible repercussion there are a lot of lawyers in the room to make sure they don't break any laws. obama therefore decided to clarify the matter himself in private with putin on the sidelines of a g. twenty meeting in china which had long been planned for september fifth twenty sixteen. but the president was very direct and very clear with mr putin that we knew what they were doing and had to stop if they're going to did there would be consequences . and nobody. neither mr obama nor any security service in the world has ever provided us
is any kind of evidence of russian interference. you know that you have interfered. it's very difficult to deal with someone who again. lies on a regular basis. he's a former k.g.b. officer i think intelligence officers around the world have very similar way of looking at the world there's a bar at our training facility that has sort of a funny phrase up above the bar to says admit nothing deny everything make counter-accusations so there are so many of very sensitive village delicate issues which could have them it's the election compete of my them clean them there's some genius in the in the in the air of mystery ship in atlanta viz that we out blaming dresser for for meddling. everything we saw after that suggested that as far as we could tell russian efforts to exfiltrate information.
and then turn around and use it in some fashion seemed to stop but at that point it was actually too late because they had given it to third parties. and and those parties could put out the information whenever it was convenient for months and months to follow. this third party was the whistle blowing website wiki leaks. october seventh twenty sixteen one month before the election the cia finally published its information on russian influence was secretary clinton just wrong the russian government has engaged in espionage against americans in the following hours wiki leaks released the hacked e-mails from hillary clinton's team weakening the candidate considerably to run for the
presidency china's knowing details there is a risk russia or china already. in this close election in which every vote counted the months of russian interference were of great importance for the outcome you know that each fortune. was. am. but you're both very good because you never see that assuring him he's going to start to. spite you the only way to. really know but i would in the us to know in your question you. tell it kernel of the k.g.b. had pulled off a masterly crew by influencing an american election now he even played the role of godfather to the new president of the world's leading power. how he must have
savored his revenge. hootin had come a long way since the collapse of the soviet union in the one nine hundred ninety s. washington had made his predecessor boris yeltsin it's vicarious agent but putin now still had to get what he was after from the newly elected us president first the lifting of sanctions against his country secondly this is spent nato enlargement in july twenty seventeen he finally met donald trump. to be. just. at i level with an american president at last this personal meeting which putin considered crucial had been carefully orchestrated with the american team. in the difficult russian political system for
a longer time of that meeting. of. president putin himself for a few months relations hooten was helping to establish some kind of personal chemistry. you see trump if you meet with him one on one if you're able to give him the impression that you click with him that you understand him that you think he's you know. brilliant. or ham. she'll give you what you want americans to see sits on shorter time most of the week. that would give you the key of why. they're meeting in in homburg was interrupted because nobody want to meet president putin you know to talk to that so that's that was their point there we go thank you thank you. ted had to face facts trump couldn't commit to anything and remained evasive he is kind of being bun bashed
if you know what i mean and he can not do what he promised to the no agreements were reached. far far away from each are there and they believe that the new story. hooten had not expected that by trying to thwart hillary clinton he may nevertheless still face a weakened president and a united states that was more hostile than before. trump's hands were tied by an investigation into his relations with russia rather than lift sanctions against moscow congress reinforced them furious over russian interference the former head of the f.b.i. james comey testified before the senate intelligence committee we're talking about a foreign government that using technical intrusion lots of other methods tried to shape the way we think we vote we are that is
a big deal. but putin had no intention of stopping moscow is now also suspected of having interfered in the twenty sixteen breck said referendum and in the french presidential elections in the spring of twenty seventeen. yes and on the mark on this there's a good question but. you know i think that putin is a very complicated mix of someone who is tactically quite shrewd. but at the same time he he is caught up in his own rhetoric in the long run is this a win for russia that it's isolated that it faces economic sanctions this is undoubtedly the price putin has paid for his revenge on the west for now it has allowed him to hold on to power in russia but where will his desire for revenge
. is there anything he hasn't accomplished yet. but taking telcel. leadscrew. thirty minutes. late to. the scars of discipline the pain still tangible. suffering for god. for city's edge but. they have survived do they also have a future. i really understand people who say they don't want to stay here. but i also admire people who want to stay here and who decided to create something . a new beginning in peace time for the people making it possible what needs to happen if tolerance and reconciliation are to stand
