new c.e.o. christine saving will have to deal with ok as a. suspect we will talk about this again. as i look now at some of the other stories making news around the world german pharmaceutical giant is planning to cut twelve thousand jobs many of them here in germany of companies come under pressure since it bought the u.s. seemed company monsanto earlier this year it's been fending off a flood of lawsuits in the united states of the ledger monsanto weed killer causes cancer. china's government has hold of the work of a medical team of claim to have created the world's first gene edited babies the country's science and technology vice minister described the actions of the team was illegal and an acceptable chinese scientists say he just acquired sparked outrage with his claims that he had altered the d.n.a. of twin babies. thousands of tens of thousands of farmers from across india have rallied in the capital delhi calling on the government take immediate steps to
solve an ongoing agricultural crisis and to ease their financial burdens many farms are struggling with debt and cycles of drought and failed harvests. michael cohen the former lawyer u.s. president donald trump has pleaded guilty to lying to congress about a trump real estate deal in russia and a surprise court appearance in new york he admitted making false statements to a u.s. intelligence committee about a plan to build a trump tower in moscow. cohen is a key figure in robert move his investigation into russian interference in the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election today's admission follows a guilty plea to other federal charges in august as part of the place he's cooperating with the moment investigation. but ukraine says russia is preventing dozens of merchant ships from leaving or entering its ports on me as an officer. but the kremlin denies it's blocking shipping traffic the two countries have been at loggerheads since a naval clash off the coast of russia occupied crimea at the weekend russian ships
fired on and seized three ukrainian naval vessels capturing the crew ukrainian president petro poroshenko has called on nato to intervene he says he'll impose restrictions on russian citizens in ukraine warning that an invasion could be possible. german chancellor angela merkel has been speaking as a german ukrainian business forum as she called for renewed diplomatic efforts to resolve the standoff. often to criticise the current situation we are asking ukraine to be smart because we can on your is all of this in talks with one another because there is no military solution to all of these conflicts and this needs to be said clearly all. skirts of the ukrainian port city of mariupol were five v.w. correspondent nick conley welcome nic so the u.s. and ukraine have named angle america as a possible a mediator is vladimir putin any more likely to listen to this time than before.
good evening phil well whether or not he listens to her he certainly picks up the phone when she calls i think this idea comes from the weekend when petro poroshenko was trying to get through to the kremlin just off the seizure of those ukrainian ships and his call was not returned his solution was to call berlin to call engler merkel and she was then able to establish some communication i think it's important to remember here that even though anger merkel has is very. is known for her the actions she took over sanctions and was very key to making sure those sanctions on russia were put in place and kept up by the european union she was very fastidious about keeping those lines of communication open visiting let him eat food and even at the height of the crisis so given that the key of no moscow seems willing to talk directly there are going to be many other alternatives whether this is a more formalized mediation or just a back channel communication that somehow keep some kind of exchange going ok.
that's only as off see what ukraine says russia has blockaded russia of course as it has and so what can you say well you do see ships here in port but those ships it is said all waiting for the possibility to leave but they're just staying in port because it doesn't seem clear whether they'll be able to get out of the sea of hours of into the black sea and out into the oceans online launching sites show a huge number of ships blocked either in the straits of coach or even before waiting to go through the only ships passing through seemingly headed for russia's ports in the sea of hours of russia's never called this a blockade as such and i think it's unlikely they will what they have been explaining these delays with these technical checks or anti-terrorism reasons but strangely enough it seems like these checks are only ever needed for ships heading to ukrainian ports so we have ukraine declaring martial law and russian troops massing on the border a new russian missile systems in crimea we're looking at saber rattling or
something more serious. we have seen these kind of troop buildup in the past saber rattling yes exercises flexing muscles none of that is totally new what is different though is in the past we haven't really seen this kind of direct confrontation as we saw in the straits of the weekend between russia and ukraine the last four years have been about proxy conflict between kiev and moscow through this russian backed separatists lease the ukraine here you have the militaries of both sides facing off against each other and one thing that really is worrying that we've seen in the last few days the real popping of the n.t.'s of the tone has become you hear from the ukrainian president and the russian president accusing each other directly of being behind these machinations he's got this political they they put it that's not something we've heard before so it is definitely a bit of a harsh a tone and you know let's not forget four years ago very few people would have predicted an extension of crimea so this is
a region where things can happen very quickly and even if now it might seem like this is definitely about saber rattling there are political reasons to do this we are in a dangerous situation and things could happen very quickly because thank you. now court in the philippines for sentence three police officers to jail for the murder of a teenage boy the first officers to be convicted for their actions during president . so called war on drugs received sentences of up to forty years without parole human rights groups say the crackdown has led to thousands of extra judicial killings a case of seventeen year old lloyd. precedented public. two of the convicted police officers leaving court. minutes earlier they along with one other had been found guilty of murdering schoolboy last sun toss they claimed the seventeen year old was a drug korea who'd fired at them while resisting arrest in twenty seventeen but
