of the issue for the for decades in the past while pakistan and india have gone through conflicts over the region and once again pakistan has appealed to the united nations and to the international community to weigh in we have heard from the un and from america as well but both have india and pakistan to exercise restraint to promote dialogue and not to case to military action it's also important to note that in depth and so the 1st focused on stance alarmist and does not see that avocation of the special status as any kind of an aggression it simply says this was a temporary vision and it's time for it to end and we should just well indeed thank you very much. you're watching the news coming to you live from berlin coming up ahead recruiting one of them was recognized combos in music history we do portrait abbey road 50 years after the bee to spruce top traffic that . the 1st to win is over the hugely damaging environmental

12:16 pm
single use plastic straws we plant best when. the production process is simple after cutting the said grass is trimmed to the right length. after that it's washed and sterilized in boiling water. the natural straws are then dried outside in the sun. the process makes them ready to use and reuse underuse. today the small company employs 13 people. already has 8 regular clients buying his 100 percent organic product being clued up and coming restaurants in the capital kampala. we've been seeing a lot of plastic waste pile up actually in our restaurant among others and really in plastic containers with straws and this is one of the forefront items which we
12:17 pm
see in a glass in front of a client every day and really it's because this is a really great way to start. plastic straws need 200 years to decompose so customers here are welcoming the natural alternative. this is the best team to get the point is that if this was an s.t.d. that the u.s. fed odets a little used it would if they feel like you could clean them that's. an enemy in its nature which. has its sights set high for his business he wants to see plastic straw usage in uganda drop by almost half in the next 5 years. it was 20 years ago today that russian president vladimir putin came to power at the time he was a relatively unknown figure he was singled out by post soviet leader boris yeltsin
12:18 pm
no one knew back then that he would have an iron grip on the country for the next 2 decades and putin one public supported by his military successes including cracking down on separatists in chechnya and during his 1st presidency the economy grew for straight 8 years now playing on his hard man image he won a series of election victories his current runs for another 5 yes in 2014 he was widely condemned internationally for russia's annexation of the crimea since then factions and falling oil prices have squeezed the russian economy now relations with the united states and dollar trump are also tense both sides recently walked away from a key nuclear missile treaty raising fears of a new arms race despite a solid support at home opposition to putin is growing always authoritarian repression of political opponents better to look at a bloody reputed i'm joined by do w.'s emily sheldon from our moscow bureau welcome
12:19 pm
emily now so i think putin became president at a time of great political turbulence in both of it russia did people back then think he would still be here today 20 years later. well when he was appointed prime minister he was basically an unknown on the political scene in russia in fact so much so that when he became president just a few later a few months later excuse me one american journalist famously asked who is mr putin but he always represented a contrast to the former president boris yeltsin who was kind of known as a bit of a drunk putin was young report represented a new face always emphasize that he didn't drink and he has come to represent stability here you have to remember that he came to power just after the ninety's which was a time of huge social and economic upheaval and even chaos here in russia after the
12:20 pm
fall of the soviet union and for many russians it really represents a kind of trauma that they have been struggling to get over for the last for the last 20 years while he has been in power he came to power to rising oil prices so that brought an economic upturn and many russians see him as really having as they say raised russia from its knees and he's come to represent the restoration of a kind of dignity and a sense of national pride here in russia and that seems to be one of his key goals as president to distill the glory of russia in the soviet eva how has this good shift to foreign policy do you think emily. i think it's been very fundamental to shaping his foreign policy kind of presenting russia after having having that loss of dignity of the fall of the soviet union kind of restoring russia's great power status has been his main goal when it comes to international policy when he 1st
12:21 pm
came to power in the early 2000 he really tried to kind of build good relations with the west he was the 1st leader for example who expressed his condolences to george w. bush after 911 in 2001 but there is a perception here among observers that he kind of was knocking on the closed doors when it comes to the west and that in a way that has also defined the way russia's foreign policy has often been defiant towards the west including for example with the annexation of the crimean peninsula in 2014 which was condemned broadly in the international community even though it has been very popular here in russia and i think you're putin has in many ways successfully managed to get a seat at the table for russia when it comes to the international stage when we look at the crisis in syria when we look at kind of its attempt to
12:22 pm
putin's attempt to be a mediator in the middle east and the denuclearization of the the korean peninsula as well i think his main goal is to present russia as an important world power and he's been pushing for that for the last 20 years and he might you know restored russia's national pride but he's a little just politicians who's more popular tool than he's overseas explain his of p.d. to the people of russia. well yes he has been hugely popular throughout his career even though newest polls show that trust and writing are put in is actually at an all time low at the moment of just just over 30 percent we spoke to some russians here in moscow to find out what they think of him 20 years after he came on to the political scene let's take a look. there's never been
12:23 pm
a tradition in russia the power voluntarily for several hundreds of years ours ruled until this year so the traditions are. we have jobs. on the rise. i quite like i think the stability is a good thing as of today i don't see if it replacement for. well putin's image really here in russia and putin's popularity has been based on this idea of stability of restoring order of restoring national pride but we've seen that recent economic stagnation does seem to be de king a bite out of his popularity there have been protests across the country in recent months and kind of in the past year after the unpopular pensions reform as well and
12:24 pm
also against a plan to garbage dumps for example in the north of the country and there have been these recent protests for the last month or so in moscow for the registration of independent candidates to the moscow duma elections there does seem to be a growing sense of dissatisfaction here in russia especially with the economic situation and putin in the last few months and even since the beginning of his last term has kind of been trying to shift his focus away from the international stage to really get to grips with those domestic issues and we shouldn't thank you very much for that assessment on and judging you putin is 20 years. now 50 years ago 4 men crossed as road in london and a photographer took a picture that vento him to become one of the best known images in music history the picture at the zebra crossing was the cover shot for the beatles abbey road
12:25 pm
