ukraine as the russian and ukrainian leaders prepare to meet for the 1st time to talk about ending the fighting. and the pro-democracy rallies in hong kong draw the biggest crowds in months organizers say some 800000 people took part to show the city's pro beijing government it had a last chance to meet their demand. was . the as. i'm sumi so much going to thank you for joining us the world anti-doping agency wada has banned russia from taking part in international sports competitions for 4 years and that includes the upcoming tokyo olympics and 2020 and the beijing games in 2022 now what a role that russia should be punished for manipulating laboratory data planting fake evidence and to lead in files linked to positive doping tests that could have helped identify drug cheats.
12:02 pm
all right let's get the latest on the story now we have a limited talkie of sports with us here on studio and the perspective from russia as well we have our correspondent and really sure when standing by for us in moscow alina let's start with you what does this ban mean so it basically means exactly what it means that russia is not allowed to participate or host any international sporting events for the next 4 years and yes that means you know lympics and for example the world championships and yes that also means a coming on the games in tokyo as well as have been to games in beijing however in case of us want to know that does not mean that this that this does not affect the euros next some of the football competition because that is considered a regional tournament and not an international one but about the athletes
12:03 pm
themselves are all russian athletes now banned from international competition at no that is the catch so it's not a blanket ban and that means that russian athletes all allow to compete but they'll be competing under a neutral flag so no fashion flag no russian and then none of that and they all and this is nothing new we also saw that saw this at the rio some my games as well as last year and beyond. in pyongyang provided that they can athletes and i want to come to you in moscow now this is a very significant decision how is this going down there. well i haven't had the chance to speak to people on the streets but i know that after that last ban which meant that russian awfully could only compete under a neutral fly last year in the winter olympics in the winter olympics in 2018 people were very upset people saw it as a huge blow to national pride people said that basically russia was being targeted unfairly that this was part of
12:04 pm
a sort of anti russian campaign and that others were doping as well but that was being ignored what is interesting though is that risottos line seems to have changed a bit there's a new general director there that's the russian anti doping agency of course and they have actually recently admitted that there were manipulations in the data provided to wada and the new death director general of the of rosado. even went almost as far well stopped just short of blaming the government for those manipulations he said that they could have they could have been made to protect perhaps the reputation of former athletes who are now in government and we've had a reaction from rosado as well here in russia they said that this was to be expected but and that this should this decision should meet sports authours here in russia think again lima tell us more about those manipulations that emily's been talking about why this ban was put in place in the 1st place ok so to go back
12:05 pm
a bit though the sanctions recommended by the wood anti doping agency's compliance review committee which today of course those sanctions were approved by wada executive committee and they accused russia of tampering with evidence of deleting . and what they also accuse them off i think this is for the importance of it all comes in is that by deleting those files that they might have potentially. serious or by deleting the pios some of these fives might have helped in potentially identify. i some of the drug cheats and rush off quest says that we did not delete anything that we did not manipulate anything this is all a technical issue a technical problem but of course that was one of the conditions is that russia of course provide an authentic copy of the lapidary laboratory data which they have to do already to i have to see how the story develops then our correspondence limit
12:06 pm
talkee from to diffuse forts and i am we sure when in moscow thank you both very much now in new zealand at least 5 people have been killed in a volcanic eruption on white island a popular tourist destination around 50 people are believed to have been on the island at the time of eruption emergency services say the number of people missing is in double digits most of the survivors have been taken off the island are injured and some have suffered severe burns now hours after the eruption police say they fear there will be more casualties the difficult conditions are complicating search and rescue efforts due to the current risk mission services. to cease the oil and i want to mean by that we have taken advice from janet and they have assisted us with making a risk assessment that the autumn is unstable. of possibilities of food or
12:07 pm
options but actually the physical environment is on site for us to return to the autumn all right let's get the latest on the story now we can speak to journalists. in auckland in new zealand high caressa thank you for joining us and we heard authorities now saying that 5 people are confirmed dead in this direction is everyone now accounted for. jimmy unfortunately the number is likely to be higher as up to 27 people are still unaccounted for on white island new zealand's most active volcano after it erupted around monday afternoon local time 5 people are now confirmed dead one confirmed to be a young men from a town across the island $23.00 have been rescued including the 5 people killed a local news outlet reported people covered in ash could be seen arriving for treatment after you've been transported from rescue helicopters at least 20 of
12:08 pm
those rescued were injured 7 pretty complete with burns being the main injury it was going from that there was a number of tourists on or around the island at the time of the explosion including new zealanders and people from overseas who need occurs so we heard police are talking about difficult conditions hampering their efforts what more can you tell us about rescue efforts at this point well the island itself is currently covered in ash and volcanic material and if they already start taking cues from experts to determine when the search and rescue team can safely access the island currently they cannot access the island as it is too dangerous to do so police confirm that currently there is no communication with anyone still on the island and even though a no fly zone has been established activity appears to have diminished since the short if there russian although people knew they knew the area had been warm warm to close all windows and doors and wear a dust mask or handkerchief when they go out and about were there any warning signs
12:09 pm
before this eruption. in october it was reported county activities on the island were at the highest levels since 2016 possibly suggesting the whole aquino was entering a period where russian was more likely our leader a member of the press asked prime minister just an ardent on why there are still tourists in the area she responded by saying there will be time for questions about how procreate it was for people of the on the island given the heightened alert level but at this moment the focus needs to be on the search and rescue operation the journalist chorus a part of me to speak into us from auckland thank you very much for that update now to some other stories making headlines around the world nationwide protests in france over president in modern pension reform policy have entered their 5th day bus and train services have been scaled down to cope with the strike in paris only
12:10 pm
2 out of the system city 16 metro lines are running and many commuters opted to get to behind the wheel instead by 9 am traffic around the capital stretched to 600 kilometers. finland is set to get its youngest ever prime minister 34 year old son amar and has been nominated by the social democrats who lead the 5 party coalition government and parliament is likely to confirm her as the new head of government in the coming days. police in india have a rest of the owner and manager of the factory destroyed in a fire that killed 43 people the blaze in the capital delhi broke out early on sunday as workers were sleeping inside it's believed it was caused by an electrical fault. and a lebanese businessman who hit the headlines by buying up a large collection of nazi memorabilia has handed the objects to the yad vashem holocaust museum in israel. originally intended to destroy the items to keep them from falling into the hands of neo nazis who he feared would use them for
12:11 pm
propaganda purposes. calls by hong kong democracy activists for citywide strikes have gone largely on answer today protesters mostly kept off the streets a day after staging their biggest anti-government rally in months organizers say 800000 joined the march on sunday calling to mark 6 months since the start of mass demonstrations calling for more tanami but as charlotte shell some pill reports many are too scared to take part in the protests instead they're setting up inventive ways to support those who have lost jobs or family support because of their involvement faces hidden location concealed only then with these home. agreed to be filmed they set up an online shopping service which supports the pro-democracy movement. it employs protesters who've been arrested or kicked out of their homes for their part in the demonstrations. we want to provide for the
12:12 pm
teenagers and everyone that is involved in this movement they should be proud of what they are doing we are proud of them and we will support them with the career despite being a world away from the front lines initiatives like this can feel the founders who volunteers say being identified could jeopardize their career is perhaps even a safety starts with a new born son who just 6 manage a caleb says getting caught up in violent protests isn't an option passionately i don't have the courage to go on the front lines and fight with them so i fell into this backup role and started this company and let them know that they are not left behind and the hong kong people are supporting that. with this scheme caleb's among the growing ranks in hong kong is finding inventive ways to support the pro-democracy cause. when you picture the hong kong protests warehouses like this one won't be the 1st thing that springs to mind it's
12:13 pm
far from the front lines behind the scenes initiatives like this one that are quietly collectively sustaining this movement caleb says he hopes one day he and his team won't have to hide their identities and will feel safe to proud to admit the role they've played. for more on the story we have glacier kwang with us here in our studio she's a member of the hong kong digital activist group she board frontline she's based here in germany pleasure thank you for being with us here today how dangerous do you think the situation is for protestors we saw there in our report described in what he describes as a backup role why is that i think because going on to the front line involves a huge risk for example you may get shot or you may get like a sickly seriously injured and some of them some of the hong kong as they have a family or they have someone that they care a lot that they cannot be so-called irresponsible to them so they cannot take up
12:14 pm
the roles in the front line but then they still want to contribute to the whole movement so they found ways to help with those who are in the front line and need it their help for example as the report you have seen just now he is trying to profile i like economic assistance to those who have lost their job in the process those who are in need of having a job because of all these what about what you do how are you in keyboard frontline working to support the protest movement as it did to activist group or a tragic profile. technical advice for the protestors for example how do you keep your device safe how do you encrypt your messages how do you store and cremation that are sensitive we try to offer this kind of advice for me because i'm now based in germany so i focus a lot of being on trying to get the story and the narrative about the hong kong movement out there for the world to see have you face any repercussions for the work that you do we know that china has a tight grip on the internet on the mainland have there been any blowback for you
12:15 pm
yes my personal information has been recently put online so my personal particulars may my phone numbers being put on line so i've received like harassing messages and calls saying that i should stop what i'm doing but when compared to those young kids youngsters who are in or only 15 but they were already shot like in the hard like. before in the. movement this is not a very serious thing that i'm facing but those who are actually on the front line are facing more danger than anyone else let's talk about the protests on the ground in hong kong we saw just 2 weeks ago that pro-democracy candidates won huge victories in local elections in hong kong and we saw another big protest on the streets yesterday but today calls for a massive general strike gone largely on answered do you think it might be time to move the protest movement away from the streets and use these legislators to push for change is that an aim now i think we are trying to find out what works and general it doesn't mean that we have to stick to a certain act for example it doesn't have to be protests all the time what does it
12:16 pm
have to be lobbying all the time because we don't actually know what actually works for the course for democracy so we're actually trying to try everything that we have and try to figure out which one works best at this and at this point we do not have an answer for what is the best way to do that just quickly are you confident that your demands are actually going to be met i am confident of the ultimate lee it will be met but maybe not in the near future not in one year or 2 you may be in a longer time span but i'm confident enough that some one date if they take it will fall and we'll get what we want or we'll have to leave it there glacier kwang from the digital activist group keyboard front line thank you very much for joining us. the leaders of ukraine and russia are meeting in paris today to talk about the conflict in eastern ukraine it is the 1st times lattimer put an end loaded selenski has met and it's the 1st time in 3 years that talks focusing on ending the war there have been held french president in call on german chancellor angela merkel
12:17 pm
are brokering this meeting now the conflict started in 2014 and has killed more than 13000 people and displaced more than 1000000 the worst fighting has been in the region our correspondent nick conley traveled there and sent us this report. close enough to see what the other side having for lunch that's how these ukrainian troops have spent the last few years just 300 meters from the russian backed separatists facing them that whole night without a single shot and i don't remember a day like that maybe on the 1st night of the cease fire it's a strange when there's no finite or you get all nervous we're used to the shooting let's assume the conflict may have fallen out of the headlines but the shooting and the death continues less than a 10 minute drive away a young woman out walking with a child was severely wounded by a stray bullet just last week our guide through the trenches on xander was in his 2nd year cadet school when the call for a recount where he rolled he could hardly have imagined that he would soon find
12:18 pm
himself a 1000 kilometers from home fighting a trench war. everyone is tied of the war has parents wives boards about them back home. that politicians can sort this out by talking why not if we withdraw from here it's not a disaster as long as no opponent just the same but than it does with. but off camera many soldiers are more skeptical they don't want to give up territory regain from the separatists at the cost of many lives. president selenski government is convinced that only a buffer zone between the front lines can bring peace. it's a short drive from the trenches to one of the region's biggest crossing points between government and separatist held territory thousands make the journey every day spending hours out in the cold. we're hoping for peace after all this time we need to resolve this war it's been 6 years since it all began i'm convinced on
12:19 pm
buses part of ukraine the guy who was an idiot i don't understand what michael and michael want to do selenski and putin should sit down together drink some thought get together and put all this behind them. but municipal with city. we need a united ukraine and we need an end to all this. so people don't have to suffer in these queues anymore the. what if you cranes biggest cities it's less than half an hour's drive down the road behind me we can't go that the pro russian separatists in control of the city aware e of the foreign press present selenski was elected earlier this year on a promise to bring down your back to ukrainian government control that's what this meeting in paris is all about. back at the front line it's quiet at least during daylight hours silence allows time to think about the
12:20 pm
future. even. when. i'm not interested in this normandy summit what will happen will happen. this war needs to and i've lost so many comrades already. true giving the other side making peace that's going to be tough. repercussions of this war will be felt for years to come it's not just about the mines and grenades the litter this landscape it's about the war in people's heads. that report from our correspondent nick connelly and he is in paris for the talks and joins us for more hi nick this will be the 1st ever meeting between ukraine's president selenski and president putin what do you think we can expect when these 2 meet. well sumi the expectations are very high indeed basically everyone has been waiting for this meeting since he was elected to ukraine's presidency earlier this year you'll have selenski the man who this time
12:21 pm
last year was a comedian and not in politics it's all up against that image putin who's been in charge of russia for almost 20 years that's longer than any recent russian leader since stalin the question is how he is beautiful newbie will do in those talks with him is lenski for his part has put a lot of work into getting this mission to happen a lot of legwork he seems to think that the personal chemistry and that's why contact could actually really help to change things. change the political dynamics in a way that original negotiations haven't but very very tense situation here in paris lots of press all eyes and ears in europe on paris today and this meeting very tight security and a lot to play for. you know president lenski has made a lot of concessions in order for these talks to even go ahead so what is at stake for him in paris. a great deal selenski was elected to the ukrainian presidency on a promise to bring peace to bring ukrainians back to the normalcy they enjoyed
12:22 pm
before 2014 although this conflict has basically disappeared from the international headlines people wounded and killed in eastern ukraine on a daily basis millions of lost their homes so there's a real huge humanitarian cost to this conflict that we really underestimate maybe in western europe where this isn't daily news screens and beyond that there's a real sense that western european leaders particularly today's host the man on the call wants to get back to business as normal with putin's kremlin and will be putting a lot of pressure on ukraine to make concessions to allow them to withdraw the sanctions and to reengage with russia all right so a lot at stake a lot of pressure here how likely is it that these talks will come to any sort of agreement. well that's the $1000000.00 question this kind of sum a tree is not an exact science the expectations are definitely high and the fact that they have got together is already a big deal meeting at this kind of level hasn't happened for the past 3 years but the question is what kind of what kind of concessions is the lansky willing to make
12:23 pm
is he willing to basically give up on parts of ukraine's sovereignty its its ability to decide its own future without asking moscow for permission and even if he does will the people back home in kiev accept it will there be a backlash from the people from the war veterans who've really invested so much of their their lives their security in keeping ukraine safe will they accept some kind of deal with russia that's the big question we're going to be here all day to keep our viewers updated on where this where these talks go that's right those talks had to get underway in a few hours time our correspondent nick connelly there in paris thank you. police in istanbul have used force to break up a protest by several 100 women who are calling for an end to violence against women 6 demonstrators were detained and men murder hundreds of women every year in turkey and 2800 some 440 women were killed by their husbands the protesters accuse the police and the justice system of failing to protect women at risk or punish perpetrators. oh ok i know the song and dance about
12:24 pm
a matter of life or death and some bull women perform a protest song that originated in chile called a rapist in your past demanding an end to violence against women. that's a long standing problem in turkey the group we will stop fantasizing counted 440 women murdered in 2000 more than a quarter of east killed by their husbands they say a major problem is turkey's justice system. a lot of femicide are happening in this country i don't know maybe people just get used to it we cannot see any credible reaction and that's why we are here to raise our voice to say we won't be silent any more to say we are against these murders and the last to be enforced properly. there was women resist all around the world how come they would say this protest is unlawful or this is a crime. let me tell you what is
12:25 pm
a crime and the crime is not to enforce laws the crime closing the doors to women asking for help. they. don't stop the women stop the murderers they shout as police tried to break up the peaceful demonstration of a few 100 people there a mystery increased pressure on the turkish government to tackle the issue. but basically liked it by advocacy groups show that violence against women is on the rise. this is deja vu news these are our top stories the world anti-doping agency wada has approved a 4 year ban on russian athletes in international competition that includes the upcoming tokyo olympics 2020 and the beijing games in 2022 what
