big dreams on the big story in. the movie magazine on d w. d w news from berlin and russia stages its biggest war games since the soviet era moscow said the joint exercises with china are purely defensive but nato accuses russia of preparing for war will be live in the russian capital also coming up warnings of a humanitarian catastrophe as syrian and russian forces prepare to take it live
12:01 pm
province thirty thousand people have fled this month alone and many more are taking to the road to. stocking up for the storm more than a million people on the atlantic coast of the united states they're back in wait ahead of the most powerful hurricane to menace the region in decades. plus the both presidential called a joke and a con. people here in this bookstore can't wait to get their hands on it but if you're a trump supporter it's quite a different story they find out what those trump supporters think obama woodward's tell all told us. omarion i haven't seen it's good to have you with us the russian military is conducting its biggest maneuvers since the end of the cold war hundreds of thousands of military person. now are taking part in drills in various parts of the
12:02 pm
country and on the pacific ocean and the joined by troops from china and mongolia the exercises will continue for a week russia's defense ministry says will involve some thirty six thousand vehicles one thousand planes and eighty warships nato says russia is preparing for what it calls a large scale conflict. well for more on this i'm joined by dr i just found loring hole phone he's a russian expert and head of the moscow office of the liberal friedrich nauman foundation thanks so much for joining us today so these war games are taking place at a time of heightened tensions between nato and russia so just what kind of signal is moscow trying to send to the western military alliance i mean oh of course at first it's a signal of strength the sheer size of the exercise. president in the last twenty
12:03 pm
years it is the biggest exercise since the eighty one exists in eastern europe but the big difference is that it's only in the asian pot and that would mean that there is also a possibility that it's not only appropriation to the european part but it is more inches. expected from the asian side so it's very cautious you have that and for the u.s. of course it is a strategic threat in a way where if there is a massive exercise of this happening well also with unprecedented is that in the past these drills were seen as preparation for a possible confrontation with china and now for the first time chinese troops are actually taking part why are we seeing such a radical shift. it is a shift it is not as radical i mean chinese troops have participated in smaller
12:04 pm
scale operations with the russians in over thirty exercises in recent years but it is the first time on strategic level and that makes. definitely a big difference so for this shift you have also to see that of course the russian side also sees that the main trading partners for russia are still in the west because the european union is by far the largest direct invest and trading partner and therefore it is also not only possible that it is a preparation for war but probably in a typical putin like show of strength the first step of reproach we don't know yet what is to be expected because it is a sign of strength it's sounds like a big scheft shift to china but the economic reality is still types to europe well speaking of economics also coinciding with these drills are bilateral talks
12:05 pm
between two teen and his counterpart she at an economic forum in eastern russia now this is a time when both china and russia are seeing their ties with the u.s. deteriorate what's expected to come out of their talks. i mean this is the big question because we had these talks for a number of decades there was always the hope on the russian side that more investments would come from china without having to give up of its own resources and that was triggered did last program of nine years ago which was signed by a president may get it in two thousand and eight did not deliver any of any strategic investments into russia and it is partly also because russia at that time saw all this project of china more as a threat to their own interest in central asia and other parts of of the eastern world and now it seems that it's more political will because of russian isolation
12:06 pm
so they willing to probably get more leverage over to the chinese and sign a deal that might also trigger a real investment what concretely comes out of that we would see today meeting in the moment as people stuck negotiating with the chinese and they have signed an agreement which they have already negotiated. at a recent conference in china and i would think that it won't be complete shift of the russian interest i know that the chinese very rational and very sober in not offending other parts of the world all right you need to try to talk to not a whole fan of the friedrich naaman foundation thank you for your insights. well turning now to syria where russian and syrian forces have been launching airstrikes against the last rebel stronghold in the country it live province the u.n.
12:07 pm

12:08 pm
a retaliatory attack and the german defense ministry has said that it is preparing scenarios thinking about how this could be implemented but at the same time into saying that such scenarios are in the process of being. called structured all the time and that is not something completely unusual at the same time there have been significant voices amongst good german politicians who have supported such a german participation in such a possible attack for instance the head of the foreign affairs committee of the german parliament has said that he would support something like that especially conservative politicians have said that in the case that such an attack should take place which would be a violation of international law of international rules germany should not stand aside when a kind of retaliatory probably shouldn't of syria should be should take place. as political correspondent hans brunt many thanks well many of the civilians

12:16 pm
trump international hotel is an island of refuge for this meeting of trump supporters in the otherwise extremely democratic lucey of washington d.c. people here can bask in their mutual love of the president and ignore negative media like say a certain book by a certain legendary journalist as bob woodward's book hits the shelves it's already created waves among the president's detractors but for trump supporters this is simply a more negative media coverage and the other day of fake news for a president that they still very staunchly support it's a left wing attack getting ready for the elections to try to energize that side of the populous there's been so many books out but that's not going to step down from supporters we're very loyal to him because at the end of the day you know what we get if we don't get down on track we get that feeling snowflake ness he's not your average politician he's trying to fix things he's coming in from the outside and
