this is the news coming to you live from berlin russian shrug some threats of sanctions from the international community for what it's paired up with ukraine a russian court meanwhile gee it's true of ukraine and say this captured at the weekend seems more operated on state t.v. to repeat cryptogram big claims a clash of off the crimean peninsula to schoolkids treated by kiev also coming up. differently going to experimental projects according indefensible a chinese research or tales of genetics conference why he edited the genes of twin
baby girls. and relief from buying munich and their coach then in fact the champions league victory that trash bin three to five won by and have now booked a spot in the knockout stages of europe's top football tournament. i don't welcome. moscow has shrugged off suggestions by european officials that it could face fresh sanctions or the crimean crisis tensions escalated between moscow and kiev off to russia sees three ukrainian naval vessels in a skirmish on sunday at least a dozen sailors have been detained for trial ukraine's president has warned its neighbor is for a parent for war and has requested but for help. speaking on
ukrainian state television president petro poroshenko said he turned to berlin after the kremlin failed to respond to his request for dialogue it was. immediately that night i ordered a phone conversation with the president of russia vladimir putin. we did not receive any response and i had to turn to the german chancellor so that she could talk to prove on the immediate release of ukrainian servicemen and ukrainian ships . poroshenko also said the authorities would take all necessary steps to release the ukrainian sailors detained on sunday when russia seized three vessels off the crimean coast captured sailors appeared in a russian court and were charged with unlawfully entering the country carrying weapons they face up to six years in prison. earlier other sailors were shown on russian television saying they had deliberately entered
russian waters as a provocation kiev denounced what it described as forced confessions moscow accuses kiev of sparking the sea skirmish to boost support ahead of an election and. most probably this provocation took place in order to achieve certain political decisions which are beneficial for the current president of ukraine. if. ukraine accuses russia of illegally capturing its ships and sailors off the coast of crimea president petro poroshenko now claims moscow is preparing for an invasion together with the country's parliament he has imposed martial law in the regions bordering russia for thirty days. fundamentally the whole martial law is about. getting the resources together. for everybody here in ukraine to understand. he's our hero place whence the
russians come for us president poroshenko insisted the meshes won't interfere with elections sheffield for march but his decrees causing concern and confusion in the capital kiev for ukrainians it's unclear what changes martial law will bring offer a four year send off with russia peace seems the distant outcome. and have a correspondent nick connelly joins us now from the ukrainian capital kiev they don't have a pulitzer russia's deploying new surface to air missiles to the crimean peninsula and ukraine's president reportedly said there is a russian crew build up at the border what are you hearing there good morning amritsar well yes though that information about russia deploying. ground to air missiles crimea that is official we've heard that from several sources in russia today in terms of intelligence provided by petro poroshenko yesterday though that was intelligence information satellite images that he showed
ukrainian journalists purporting to show russian tanks massing along ukraine's borders office that's very hard to verify independently but this is definitely worrying we've seen in the past during exercise this kind of thing but given the confrontation we've had in the strait of courage is really the first time that russia and ukraine have faced off against each other directly the conflict that's been going on for the last four years is by proxy that's ukraine against russian backed separatists nice the country but this is really the first time that the professional militaries of both countries seem to be standing and standing off against each other in such a direct way and we're hearing that moscow's concerns lie over a planned a ukrainian naval base which is being built in the area which moscow feels good threaten its geo strategic interests and russia's holding seven ukrainian sailors and refusing to let them go is it normal to happen to them. in terms of the fate of the ukrainian sailors they were yesterday most of them
given two month sentences for illegally crossing russia's borders. having said that i think you know the legal detail is less important if we get some kind of resolution to this we might see them out through some kind of humanitarian deal equally if the political situation continues to worsen and they may spend a lot longer in detention in terms of those plans by ukraine to up its defenses its naval defenses on the sea of as of i think it's still very unlikely that ukraine in the near future will in any way be able to challenge russia there has been talk from some russian sources about fears that ukraine's might bring nato forces there but there's no real clear perspective of nato offering ukraine any further guarantees so this all does seem fairly farfetched for now and what about the diplomatic front nick what's being done there do on both sides from the brink and resolve this crisis well it's difficult we heard yesterday from petro
poroshenko that over the weekend he tried to call the kremlin to speak to vladimir putin about this and his calls were declined he then went to chancellor merkel of germany who was able to reach putin yesterday we heard from moscow that they were rejecting official offers from france and germany to mediate but it's clear that bilateral solution isn't anywhere nearby they're not talking to each other not picking up the phone so if this is a formal mediation or more informal behind the scenes support this is not going away without the international community. right an economy in kiev thank you very much. now a major point of contention between russia and ukraine is kiev's ever closer relationship with the european union we spoke to the head of the european parliament's foreign affairs committee about the incident in the catch st between the russian coastline and the crimean peninsula russia has clearly shown aggressive
behavior and this is a violation of international rules and like many of the international representatives i would like to underline the position of the european union that we condemn this russian attitude and we call on restraint and that one thing is clear the sea of azoff has been agreed between ukraine and russia to be open for commercial shipping for military shipping and for fishery shipping and that russia has no right to do what it did. so what should the you how should the you respond to this event. first of all many european leaders have already been involved in finding a diplomatic solution to not let the tensions try to raise i have been informed that among others chancellor merkel for and with president putin and with president poroshenko the statement of the european union has been very clear in this issue
that we want to defend the rights of ukraine and that after the illegal and acceleration of crimea for russia we cannot accept that step by step the sea of as of this supposed to become a russian territorial water this has been agreed in two thousand and freeway there for the illegal an extension of crimea but both countries have the right to share this water already when the bridge was built across from. strait of couch already that was a violation of international regulations and a violation of the territorial sovereignty of ukraine it was in korean ships who tried to cross a carriage straight from the sea of sea and russia says it was a provocation from the ukrainian side view this well if you look at the whole case from the objective point of view. i'm not quite sure to put it in polite terms how
you can actually see this as a provocation small ukrainian vessels were attacked by much larger russian ships so i think this is once again a typical form of russian propaganda. that was david mcallister european parliament's from the european parliament's foreign affairs committee talking to do . let me now bring you up to date with some other stories making news around the world indonesian investigators see a lined airplane line and a plane that crashed last month suffered technical problems a day before the accident and should have been grounded all one hundred eighty nine people on board the boeing seven three seven were killed when it crashed into the sea shortly after taking off from jakarta. an explosion outside a chemical plant in china has killed at least twenty three people the blast took place in the city of. some one hundred sixty kilometers northwest of the gap to
beijing several dozen vehicles were destroyed in the blaze. at least one person has died in two others seriously injured after severe storms hit the australian city of sydney authorities are warning motorists to stay at home and sydney airport has cancelled dozens of flights forecast to see one month's worth of rain fell on the city in just a few hours. the european commission is set to unveil an ambitious new climate proposal it wants the e.u. to reduce its net carbons emissions to zero by two thousand and fifteen the proposal comes after the united nations released a report warning the world must triple emissions cuts or face catastrophic global warming the report found the target set in two thousand and fifteen hours agreement will not be met unless the government's introduced additional masha's the news comes just days before high level un climate conference in poland. scientists say
one out of climate change has been the loss of coral on a stranger's great barrier reef but an expensive effort to harvest millions of coral eggs could help reverse the damage. because of the commitment with it's a magnificent breathtaking natural wonder but even from above the surface it's easy to see that all is not well in australia's great barrier reef. huge swathes of coral along its two thousand three hundred kilometers have died. scientists blame rising sea temperature is linked to climate change in a process known as coral bleaching. or but now there is hope of regeneration thanks to the annual coral spawning season
a strong sporting season by streams the reef is alive number one you can spawn you can reproduce no one has six when they did it so this is this is a clear indication that the farm when the ecological crisis and functions that keep the system working off functioning well research is planned to grow coral larvae from the harvested eggs and return them to parts of the reef. it's hopes this receding project will reverse the bleaching trend which was particularly bad in twenty sixteen and seventeen. this is a clear indication that it's not too late for the reef and the reef itself is actually doing its job and is doing it well we've just got to be there to help and why sure nothing else happens to it. but even if successful scientists admit it will just by time they're adamant that action to reverse climate change is the only way to save coral reefs for the future. a scientist who claims he
created the world's first genetically edited babies says a second pregnancy with a gene edited embryo may be under way hey john we were speaking of the genetics conference in hong kong his first public appearance since his controversial and on very fine research hit the headlines earlier this week or to the d.n.a. of twin girls to prevent them from contracting hiv and despite sparking outrage he insists his motivation was purely altruistic. i said these people they need help. the millions of families with this disease and inherited disease or infectious disease we should show compassion to them. if we have the technology we can make it available. that would be helpful for more people if we did. when talking about the future.
first that it's transparent open and that we share the knowledge i cumulated with society with the world and let society decide what's the next step. joining me now is fabienne schmidt from the science desk a welcome fobbing now it seems leading scientists have more questions than answers after he spoke at the hong kong biomedical conference what did we learn from his experience appearance. i think that he painted himself into a corner somehow and what i just heard or what we just heard from his appearance indicates that he basically has to argue his way but clearly the doubts in the scientific community are much much bigger as to what what he did was actually right
and so he argues was helping families. who may at some point or people who may at some point contract i.v. his experiment actually has no relevance whatsoever for and really helping fight because what scenario will be that what actually make a difference for people would be that basically all of humanity would have to be genetically modified in order to achieve some kind of global immunity against hiv this is totally unreal but a fog and despite all the criticism here john cleese seems undeterred an even prouder fiza any advantages to this experiment which you can be proud off. i think that actually there because basically the point is is you if before in vitro fertilization he took a gene part out of his of the d.n.a.
of the babies that are born so that they can't get their immune against hiv but there is almost no danger of hiv in china and if people use condoms or also use the retroviral drugs it i.v. can be very well how to control so much bigger illnesses and diseases in the world that needs to tackling age i.v. basically is not the medical. topic of the of the of the time no age i.v.'s under control if people have access to medicine and the condoms of course and father even if even if you were to accept his claim that this experiment is a success and these gene edited twins will become resistant to h i.v. what us about the other consequences these babies could face the point is that research showed this year that when you're actually going at the d.n.a.
was chris because genetics scissors and you cut out a certain part of the genes that is undesired or you replace it with something that is desired there will almost always be some mutations in the entire gene pool or at the at another point and those can cause any kind of genetic disorders later in life or maybe generations down the line right five inch away from need obvious signs says thank you very much for that. i am the champions league vi in munich secured their place in the last sixteen of a thrashing the portuguese side benfica five one alina her jockey from the sports desk is here to talk us through all that action welcome believe it now vines not been doing well and they've been a lot of nerves what shane suddenly that they trashed benfica coach made some very important positional changes but i think the key here was focus i have not seen by
and play with so much confidence so much focus in a very very long time this was hard core ninety minutes fully concentrated of fully concentrated by an make no mistakes no lapses in concentration and unlike on the weekend against doesn't offer the debut a two goal lead not once but twice no repeat of that dutchman i and robin to trademark goals with his deadly left foot live on dos he also with the doubled but consistency is key here and robin himself said that after the match he said this is just one game if needle win on saturday in the business leader we're back to square one we're back in trouble again so relieved by i mean it would just how important was this victory for their coach and this is exactly what he needed i mean it's a morale booster it takes pressure off him and buy in munich sporting director was even asked after the match what do you make of his future and he replied by saying
hey look you saw the game the game speaks for itself so koresh does seem to have the backing from top management and by a nick as well as the players there's a lot of players that jump to his defense after the match saying that we win and we lose together he's one of us and this is all a bit contradictory because only a few weeks ago we heard about all this play out unrest inside the locker room and coach himself finally addressed those rumors let's take a look. let's play for a few and there was talk about four players who were against me but nobody spoke about the others the ones who are on our side that's why it's clear i think there are many like that on this team and that is can look for you to feed into the munch of so much is also very relieved to buy and have now made it to the knockout stage as does refute us all the other teams who are also that so i x. also through it was a bit ending for hoffenheim they eliminated after concealing a late goal and also moving on manchester city and defending champions reale madrid as are roma despite losing an italian giant eventis and last but not least really
for manchester united they have been struggling but they are through to the last sixteen and again they left it really late in the last minute in stoppage time filling me with a last gasp goal and marino you have to seemliness reaction he took a bottle of water bottles of water smashed it against the ground of the big question did he do it out of joy or out of frustration one never knows the joys it most. likely for me don't you suppose is such a pleasure to have you with us. a little football in the second leg of south america stop a club sucka final has been deemed too dangerous to play in argentina and will not take place elsewhere on december eighth or the ninth on the copa libertadores us match between bonus eidos and rivals a river plate and boca genius was first postponed on saturday after river fans painted the book a team bus with films and other objects police then used tear gas to disperse the
crowd but the gas got into the boss and affected some of the book of play as the game was reset here for sunday evening but then postponed it again. so how prepared the u.k. is bang for a potential hod reg said the pleasant to answer that it is a good holiday this is this i wish i could we should know by now about the bank of england has delayed the publication of its latest stress test results for major major u.k. banks they were set to be published at seven am this morning but they won't actually come out until four thirty london time this afternoon and it's stress test the bank of england wants to find out just how resilient the british banking sector really is if it comes to a hard no deal breaks among the scenarios played through by analysts plummeting real estate prices the interest rates skyrocketing to four percent and unemployment
hitting almost ten percent. german consumer confidence has dropped for the second month in a row that's according to a survey by the j.f.k. market research institute global trade tensions and uncertainty over the impact of britain's departure from the you are thought to be the main issue is worrying consumers about perhaps with the christmas shopping season in mind the move for splashing out on bigger bottles has actually improved. now let's talk about that or bring in bob's who is in the center of frankfurt right there on the shopping streets what's the mood there are people eager to shop or not . i think they are you know it's hard to read people's minds really specifically but when i look around at the people passing by smiling over at us of course here special thing to have a camera right in the pedestrian zone here but even before we went on air i saw
people strolling along pleased lot of them carrying bags even with the early hour here and it just seems to be a good mood and that's reflected in the k. poll yes there is some worry about the economy and about incomes but there's still a lot of readiness to do big ticket spending and the retailers association just said that for the first time they're expecting for november and december with this all important christmas business more than one hundred billion euros and turnover overall in germany not just not just here in a big christmas ok but how long can this go on germans spending and spending. the situation behind the spending is still very strong we have a record employment rate and the point sector in the labor market many jobs missing incomes are still going up but if the worldwide economy goes down and exports start to suffer under bricks or trade and other issues then of course it will hit the
labor market and the spending inclination as well it's hard to predict if k.'s rolf burkle the senior consumer researcher there says that he sees that the seeds for a downswing have almost been sown with that economic environment that we are seeing . we bounce in frankfurt thank you very much. donald trump is ramping up the pressure on the american automotive giant general motors off the g.m. announced plans to axe some fourteen thousand u.s. jobs trump took to twitter to threaten to cut government aid for the comic meanwhile g.m. is sticking to its guns saying the cuts are necessary to ensure the company's long term growth. factories like this one in lordstown ohio were part of donald trump's plan to revive america's rusting industrial base. but now it and four other factories general motors plans to shutter won't be making anyone great again. since
