11:09 am
a matter of weeks later and ukraine finally signed dissociation agreement at over two thousand pages long it covers everything from animal welfare to judicial reform but asked most ukrainians what the association deal means to them and they'll most likely answer two things travel and trade. no more queuing up for visas no more hefty visa fees for many ukrainians visa free access to the area has been the most tangible change. no surprise then that present person come up to end a visa requirements with a lavish ceremony on the country's border with you. under the terms of the deal ukraine also gained preferential access to european markets the e.u. has long been ukraine's biggest single trading partner since osi asian came into effect trade between ukraine and the block has been growing by over twenty percent
11:10 am
a year but what the association agreement these people protesting for didn't include was a firm promise of future membership instead it merely acknowledged ukraine's quote european aspirations decision makers in kiev hope that in time brussels would offer a road map to membership five years later. and there's still waiting. to be a polite but very definite no now. that report from the nicolas connelly and he joins us for more from kiev hi nick good to see you how much support is there today among ukrainians for moving towards the e.u. . well the polls do show a strong majority across the country for joining the e.u. having said that when you people how likely they think it is to happen most of them seem to have got the message from europe and see. joining the e.u. something that's often the future and there is growing disappointment.

with expectations that couldn't be met so that is something that is changing remains pretty widespread if we look at what has happened in the last five years after my don russia annexed crimea in april of two thousand and fourteen. there have been multiple efforts to bring peace to. visiting kiev today she's been a big part of pushing forward those peace efforts why haven't they really succeeded . me. those talks the two different rounds of the. process the fundamental problem here is that the process would involve on the one hand the. separatists in eastern ukraine closing. the border to russia which currently porous . fresh elections.
11:12 am
in those elections giving them new. status. seems willing to make that move both sides. seem to be more satisfied with the status quo than taking the risk of making and making a concession they both seem to think that. it's better to not risk making concessions in the hope that. will prevail. between a ukrainian president. and. russia's vladimir putin it is a difficult relationship has he helped overcome the hostility. i think definitely the beginning that was an important role people weren't picking up phones to each other in those first weeks and months of the conflict here since then that has changed somewhat and we understand the presence. they have
11:13 am
channels of communication i think the fundamental problem here is that russia and russia's elites don't see ukraine as a genuinely foreign country they don't recognize ukraine's ability to set its policy and they see themselves in saudi goes in ukraine say any move that ukraine makes is extent going to be unpopular it's not so much about the chemistry between the leaders as that fundamental disconnect. has expended a whole lot of diplomatic capital over the last five years in ukraine not just in minsk but also in terms of shoring up european sanctions against russia following the crimea that was something that was deeply unpopular with lots of european governments but through her coordination they have prevailed in spite of all those challenges are only reporting for us from kiev thank you nic.

pocket one million dollars each for their participation big money but at what cost . right ben is here with business now and some possible movement on brags that possibly a british official says prime minister to reserve may is close to striking a deal with brussels that will give banks and other financial companies continued access to the european market off the break that it would mean that financial services in london would not have to move their headquarters to the confidence to continue doing business with the rest of the e.u. the british pound gained point six percent on the news financial sector is crucial to british interest it contributes an annual one hundred twenty billion pounds to the u.k. economy. business leaders are demanding clarity over trade post breaks it. stalled the irish border is a key problem once a focal point for sectarian tension it's now become a place full of promise. the border running through the tiny irish community of
11:18 am
months is hardly recognizable anymore to drive the few miles to derry has become something quite normal in recent years derry is in a. more than oil and which is part of the united kingdom before the border was heavily guarded if you look for them you can still find relics from that time most people here don't want to go back to that the open border has brought many people jobs and a studio income it's also made the region attractive to tourists. one hears a similar story everywhere along the five hundred kilometer border between northern oil and the republic of ireland. but bricks it is making people here nervous for a long time known tradesmen have worked on both sides of the border up businesses have branches in both countries and if hours long border controls were reintroduced the tourists who have brought the region modest prosperity would also stay away.
11:19 am
reporter sullivan is from the border region and was just back there last week tell us and describe to us how the situation there has changed over the years from from when you were born right right up until today well when i was a child i was born the year he's and i remember we used to regularly visit family in county donegal which we had to go through the border to reach and at that time it was a case of driving up to a heavily militarized border with british army soldiers who would come out check the car generally there if they knew at that stage what people to look out for not but it was quite a tense time as a kid i remember crossing the border and i can only imagine what it was like for people who live directly at the border crosser all the time in terms of the present time from the ninety's on so when the master treaty was signed pretty much that was the end of the costumes and the only checks that are meant for security checks and then that ended in the late ninety's with the good friday agreement of one thousand nine hundred and since that time life around the border region has if not quite
11:20 am
flourished greatly improved understandably because there's no border there anymore so it's just like any normal place so what a business is now telling you you spent four days there reporting for us. just last week what sort of stories that you hear there's a lot of fear and concern a lot of businesses i mean the level of cross border interaction commercially is huge understandably supply change or supply chains are entirely dependent on an open and free border there's roughly thirty five percent of northern ireland's exports that doesn't include what go to great britain arch of the republic of ireland and there's not sure exactly the percentage for the other way around but it's roughly one billion a year so this huge huge levels of interaction and there's obviously massive fears that any return to previous coast and posts or border arrangements like existed previously with potentially ruined us that level of interaction at the very minimum jeopardize that so some of these businesses taking precautions yeah absolutely i mean a lot of them have already cut back their accounts the business owners i spoke to
11:21 am
particularly in the agriculture sector and in the manufacturing sector particularly on the southern side of the border they've already started cutting back on their northern accounts and started looking for alternative suppliers which remain in the e.u. and then on the northern side there's a lot of businesses that are looking into set no basis on the southern side of the border so in the event of a hard so-called hard bags it and return to questions arrangements that they will have an e.u. base close to home that the underlying so i mean all those measures is taking a toll that will cost money what about the full in the value of sterling as well i mean that would be affecting them too what a good yeah well that's something that's already noticeable so obviously all the stuff i'm talking about is hypothetical but the thought of starting israel has already happened and when you have two different currency regimes just across the border from each other people are not going to be spending money in a different jurisdiction and obviously a lot more expensive for them to do so so a lot of the business owners i spoke to in the republic of ireland side of the border have said they've already noticed quite a decrease in the amount of northern coast and they're getting particularly again
11:22 am
and just normal shopping towns and stuff along the border personally is this something that frustrates you the whole briggs it issue and the fact that it's affecting where you come from. home and the potential of the region it does frustrate me immensely and that's common across the board amongst people throughout ireland north and south regardless of their political persuasion because it's i think there's a degree of frustration particularly with the braggs appears in the u.k. that they have jeopardized something without actually realising the costs during the u.k. independence referendum. sorry just one more question is there a positive the could come out of all of this i know some people are talking about irish unity yeah absolutely it has sort of accelerated that question in the event of a bad brags it on the north struggling there could be a huge increase in support for enough cash mullard thirty strong levels of support for it but it is probably not quite close to a majority yet but certainly if things continue in the van that they're going and
11:23 am
if the regs it is particularly bad there could be sufficient support for what's called a border poll which the british government could potentially call and that could lead to reunification of the sullivan interesting stuff thank you very much for your reporting of the coming in today. the us will reimpose most ancients on a run on monday that affect oil gas and financials european companies have been pulling out and that's already it's. seppi de s.m.c. is once again looking for a job the thirty four year old iranian will soon be unemployed again that's because her employer german manufacturer in giant siemens is leaving iran and if they commit crime currently economic situation is very difficult it's not just affecting foreign companies but iranian ones as well i've been writing job applications since i was told i was going to lose my job but i haven't had a single response yet carmack at. seventy day has been working in the h r
