a country. welcome to the program russia's president putin has accused ukraine of committing an act of premeditated provocation in the naval confrontation off crimea tensions between moscow and kiev escalated after russia sees three ukrainian vessels on sunday at least twelve ukrainian silas' have been detained pending trial ukraine's paris president poroshenko has declared martial law and the country's border regions and warned that russia is preparing for war. this is what life has become for many living around. it's the closest ukrainian city. both of which are now controlled by russian backed separatists since sunday's naval clash with russia ukraine has begun to impose martial law. so you are the country's president petro
6:02 pm
poroshenko has warned there could be a russian invasion. these tanks have not yet been removed their will there i don't want anybody to think that those are toys the country is under threat of a food scale war with russia. and with russia and ukraine have blamed each other for sunday standoff in the catch strait which links the black sea and the sea of a zone of russian naval officers fired on and seized three ukrainian vessels capturing the crew twelve ukrainians have now been charged with unlawfully entering russia thanks face up to six years in jail but russian president vladimir putin blames the ukrainian president for the standoff claiming it's a move to boost his ratings. it if this is a school it's clearly a product of. a provocation. and i think it was the president

himself should head of the presidential election shed yule to be hideous in ukraine just. what is this additional international pressure against russia is building with talk of further sanctions u.s. president donald trump has threatened to cancel a meeting shared jeweled with president putin at this week's g. twenty summit. meanwhile ukrainians are preparing for a new phase of war with the conflict showing no signs of stopping. to go through this with. us special representative for ukraine negotiations is also a former u.s. ambassador to nato welcome to i just explain to us what the america's position in this latest outbreak of hostilities is well first off that this is an act of aggression by russia that these were ukraine vessels that are traveling peacefully seeking to go through the. straits to ukrainian port they were not allowed to go
6:04 pm
through they turned around. and as they turned around and they were attacked and then boarded by russians and as we just saw in the report russia confiscated the ships and rest of the sailors so both really good lacked it to begin with and then followed by another illegal act of attacking this vessel so when russia says it was a ukrainian act of provocation the u.s. response is not sure how this could be a provocation a sovereign state has a navy it's moving vessels from one of its ports to another one of its borders through its own waters the problem here is that russia has claimed to has taken crimea has claimed to annex it claims that the waters around crimea are now rushing waters and claims that despite a two thousand and three agreement with ukraine russia has unilateral control over access to the sea and then fired upon these vessels so i don't see anything that ukraine did here that could be conceived of as provocative it is however challenging russia's assertions to having taken these ukrainian pieces of territory
6:05 pm
in water so that the russian game here is what the this area of ukraine is of crimea is i was the first off that is the first thing they say it is there's they're never giving it back they have an ax to it they say it's done but secondly it's no matter what they do in this case they've actually fired a ukrainian naval vessels no firing back by the ukrainians by the way then adopted the people they've confiscated the ships and then they blame the ukrainians for doing that so what's the united states going to do about it well i think the first thing is we are coordinating very closely with our european allies and partners we have a robust policy of sanctions in place we work with the ukrainians on strengthening their defense capabilities trying to strengthen resiliency in ukraine and our european allies are doing the same there's talk as we just saw in this report about possible additional sanctions from europe we think that's worth considering alternatively there are sanctions on the books that perhaps are not being implemented as rigorously as they could be and that's something else that's over europe you know you see the world looks all it says it will sign. since i have
6:06 pm
already been applied and russia just keeps marching around area around crimea so yeah despite the sanctions this is ours and this is ours and we'll have that as well and i think i think that misses a couple of things first off i think this could have been a lot worse and i think the pressure that the west has put back against russia for having invaded eastern ukraine in particular and exactions there has created some deterrent effect in russia not wanting to escalate into a full scale conflict not seeking to take new territory i think that the defense of support for ukraine contributes to that as well i also think that there's a lot of discussion in moscow now is this really working out for russia when you saw what happened a few weeks ago with ukrainian orthodox church for example they're demanding independence from the russian orthodox church precisely because the ukrainian people are needed because of russia's invasion of ukraine and killing ukrainians so that they've lost the goodwill of ukrainian people which have been there for
6:07 pm
centuries so it's a major loss for russia really do you see any role for a military response in this i don't see any any desire by anybody to fight against russia to retake this territory the ukrainians cannot and should not do that there is no desire in the west to do that but what we need to do is to deter further russian advances as being too costly and to you know useless for them in order to create the conditions for a negotiation to reestablish peace and restore the territory reducing do you realistically expect the terrorists there's a big relief to be stopped if you talk about deterring russia from further expansion. my reading of the situation is that once russia has that bit of ukraine it will be happy that this is what it once said it's got it now and no i don't think that's right i think a particular if you look at the dawn boss the part of eastern ukraine where there is still active fighting every night this is not territory that is terribly important to russia as the target dorrian itself. it is because it provides
6:08 pm
a foothold into the rest of ukraine provides a means of influence the problem is that that influence has backfired it has produced exactly the opposite of what russia wanted so there is an incentive for russia to say that you know let's negotiate a peace agreement here and what the minsk agreements actually say is that the territory would be restored ukrainian control and russia is a party to those agreements so it's a matter of finding the mechanisms can we get this implemented so that we can at least establish peace in that part crimea it's going to be a longer term problem because in eastern ukraine i think there is some hope. your special representative for you could thank you. as are some of the other stories making news around the world indonesian investigators say the lion at plane that crashed last month suffered technical problems the day before the incident should have been grounded all one hundred eighty nine people on board the burning seven three seven were killed when it crashed into the sea shortly after taking off from

in response to previous criticisms that event for most forms of islam that are too conservative if so there are nearly five million muslims living in germany and this report we hear from one young woman hoping to liberalize the faith. sorry hoping to liberalize the faith. understanding how muslims are perceived in germany is a mission for. an author and the daughter of mara can immigrants she was born and raised in germany she comes from a conservative religious home sundays were devoted to learning verses from the koran by heart but at the same time she managed to follow her own interests. when i would have it was a huge deal for my mother that i should be independent it was nothing off limits no sense that you can't do this or that just because you're a girl. with fewer restrictions on what she could do and must have had an easier upbringing than many young muslims in germany now thirty seven she writes books

patrolling the complex city of muslim life and just keen to dispel stereotypes she says all too often women are depicted as victims and men are unable to show any sign of anxiety or insecurity. and must i believe both muslims and non muslims need to abandon such oversimplified views. it is much much them and feed. on the one hand some muslims have a romanticized image of other muslims and ignore anything problematic within their own community all they set themselves against mainstream non muslim society on the other hand you have those who are panicking the islam has almost completely taken over. for many muslims their big to boost surrounding religion family and sexuality but instead of breaking down these barriers and master says some muslim groups reinforce them she's critical of the german islam
6:12 pm
conference for including in her view to many conservative groups. nice. with most muslim groups don't believe in equality they are highly patriarchal some are actually reactionary and they're certainly not interested in islam becoming more liberal or in advancing gender equality. lest i go to dinner for a walk in mass trust opinion that's exactly what german islam requires emancipated muslims who are not held back by tradition or the dictates of religion living freely and enjoying equal rights seen a better mousetrap chats with young women in neverland cafe they too want to see an open mind it islam. was to cause perry sounds a man face you're going clubs liverpool in the champions league tonight as both sides fight for a place in the last sixteen two german coaches go back
