munitions and entire weapons factories to the saudi led coalition. in saudi arabia looking out the latest reforms announced by the conservative kingdom of the country's leaders more in tune with people. on the secrets to life long loan for couples talk about what kept their romance going for over five decades and a new german documentary that's just had its premiere on the big screen. hello i'm terry marchin good to have you with us. russia has responded to it for tact in the ongoing dispute over the poisoning of a former russian spy the kremlin has announced it's expelling sixty american diplomats and shutting the u.s.
consulate in st petersburg this comes after nations around the world kicked out russian officials in response to the poisoning of sergei scrip all and his daughter in britain many western countries hold russia responsible moscow has denied the allegations. for hundreds of years since petersburg has held symbolic value for us russian ties it was here in seventeen a she that the u.s. opened its first mission in russia but its diplomatic presence in the city will soon end moscow kicking out scores of western diplomats as a tit for tat retaliation over the poisoning of a former russian double edged in britain it means more than one hundred fifty diplomats from over two dozen countries will be out of russia. everything will also be reciprocal in terms of the number of people from the diplomatic missions who will be leaving russia. with people with these and that is
all for now. a reciprocal move it may be but it's one the u.s. says russia cannot justified because moscow is at fault russia is responsible for that horrific attack attack on the british citizen and his daughter once again they have broken the chemical weapons convention it was a banned substance that they have used no overt shock we take this matter very seriously former russian double eigen surrogates create polonaise daughter yulia were found slumped on a park bench in the city of souls brienne early march poisoned person believes moscow tried to kill the pair screen power remains in a critical condition in hospital though yulia is conscious and talking according to doctors russian vehemently denies any involvement in the case and it wants access to your. we are witnessing the hindrance of russian representatives accessing injured russian citizens from what i see is congressional. the question now is
whether the crisis will move beyond teeth for tat measures. more let's bring in our moscow correspondent meir drugs. drugs tell us more about these latest expulsions. we knew that these explosions are going to come the only question was why closing down closing down the general consulate in st petersburg and not one of the other general consulates in russia when you look at the map here will see that there are four u.s. consulates here in russia one in the far east in light of our stock one in you get that in books in the middle of the country and two in the european part of russia he and moscow and in st petersburg you can't close down the embassy here in moscow so it had to be simply doesn't work so this is a reciprocal move me
a drug matching expulsion of russian diplomats by the u.s. does this restore the the diplomatic equilibrium now or can we expect further punitive measures well the fifo well karp starts in two and a half months i don't think that russia is really interested right now in making a bad situation worse the kremlin is looking to it's going to wait and see what london and washington are going to do u.s. ambassador huntsman sad that there was no justification for the expulsion and it shows that the kremlin is not really interested in a dialogue with the u.s. you may hear and russia experts who will disagree with that and basically could say we only counter action taken by the west british prime minister may made it clear just a couple of days ago that there could be further actions against russia if this is
the case terry you can be very sure russia will retaliate now moscow is demanding access to yulia script paul the daughter of the double agent there both of them poisoned insults very in the u.k. . yulia is apparently conscious and talking again why does the kremlin want to talk to her. well russia is acting like a victim their attitude is we have nothing to do with their poisoning or scrape on his door to us the daughter has the russian citizenship and she's being hurt seriously so a representative off the embassy in london would like to talk to her he's basically saying you know it's my duty my duty to talk to her and london say no moscow is not a victim they actually did it in full there for that reason they refused to give moscow any further information on access to the daughter iraq thank you so much for
bringing us up day to me a drugstore it's there in moscow now to eat yemen where the war there has killed more than one hundred thousand people in this place three million others so far the fighting is often described as a proxy war in many countries have become involved both directly and indirectly one of them is germany a german weapons maker has been supplying bombs to members of the saudi led coalition fighting yemen thanks to loopholes and export walls. south africa some fifty kilometers east of cape town a huge tightly guarded compound. the watchtower's carry the blue logo of i'm a tongue germany's biggest defense corporation but here in south africa it is called the hine mittal deano munition or r.d.m. adi aim is mainly an export driven company and they are one of the most successful
companies into africa they have got to turn off of billions of brand if they employ over two thousand people and they all crying at quite a question on the right the company doesn't just export bombs from here but also whole weapons factories thirty nine such facilities have been set up in countries including egypt saudi arabia and the united arab emirates they are all part of the military coalition fighting in yemen. which is currently facing the world's worst humanitarian crisis. is supplying arms to saudi arabia for this war despite strict german export regulations. this plant on the vacation island of sardinia manufactures these bombs. germany plays a role through the export of weapons especially into regions that are unstable
where there is conflict where there is repression most obviously today the middle east and plays a role in ensuring that those conflicts are remarkably bloody profits flowing to the german companies coffers ryan mittal declined repeated interview requests it insists it follows the laws of the countries it operates in. the german government also refused to take a stance in the company's overseas subsidiaries for the green party that's an untenable position. still tied to a plea cynical of these defense companies to complain about the strict german regulations while they found ways to dodge the rules such as through overseas operations. and then they continue to supply german weapons to crisis areas that's unacceptable we urgently need to close these loopholes. government researchers have recently said that german politicians can lawfully limit the overseas activities of german companies but it's unlikely that will pass in

heal him and i thought i was the man who founded a particular form of rural cooperatives at a time when german farmers were fighting poverty as well as x ploy to fuel known shocks and school operative banking model hasn't spread to many other industries and still functions today. these two families a members of germany's oldest co-operative in eight hundred ninety eight their forefathers banded together and started a cooperative that built and operated a flour mill one farmer could not have done it alone this could buy the. grain from our region the all mountains is very coarse it was difficult to sell to nearby dresden there was very little profit so they said we need our own mill so we can process the grain and then we can make the bread as well. as. the mill and the bakery have ensured a thriving business for the farmers for many years now some seventeen businesses
are now part of this successful co-operative. the idea of the cooperative goes back to free trade vilhelm hif. in the mid nineteenth century he promoted it as a way of becoming the poverty faced by farmers in his region festival. since then the idea has spread to other parts of the economy new industries like sustainable energy have also adopted the model most corporative work on a majority basis this can have this a regardless of their stake. in the cantante both the small when decisions have to be made everyone's opinion has equal weight. that applies to the world's largest co-operative gone in spain it has around seventy five thousand members eighty percent of whom it joint owners as with any business cooperatives like monder gone can suffer in times of crisis but because all members have an equal say they usually avoid mess layoffs this is. still
a private company it has to be profitable but the number one goal is always to support the members so there are always two sets of objectives to consider economic objectives and social ones. for co-ops it's not just. about the bottom line. and maybe that's why they often outlast private companies that are generally profit driven. following two years off the decline the ata market grew rapidly last year and this year it looks even more appealing as investors seeks shelter from recent volatility on capital markets now hong kong is embracing its newfound role as a global top within the first hour of this week's to basle faire in hong kong a piece by villa and the kooning sold for thirty five million dollars and chinese artists aren't far behind. chinese guy is probably wouldn't have had much interest
