placing them on the highways and who night without a single shot i don't remember a day like maybe on the 1st night of the see saw you know it's a strange when there's no financial you get all we used to the shooting let's assume. the conflict may have fallen out of the headlines but the shooting and the deck 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 in the conference room couch where he rolled he could hardly have imagined that he would soon find himself a 1000 kilometers from home fighting a trench war. with everyone is tight of the war has parents wives war it's about them back home. if the 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 only as we thought it. but off
8:06 am
camera many soldiers are more skeptical they don't want to give up territory regain from the separatists and the cost of many lives the present selenski of 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 buses part of ukraine. i don't understand what maclin max want to do selenski and putin should sit down together drink some vodka together and put all this behind them. with the publicity he and i ok you know we need a united ukraine and we need an end to all this. so people don't have to suffer in
8:07 am
these queues anymore. but if you cranes biggest cities is 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 early 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 in the front line it's quiet at least during daylight hours silence allows time to think about the future. i'm not interested in this normandy summit what happened will happen. this war needs to and i've lost so many come rights already. giving the others some late making peace and that's going to be to the. repercussions of this war will be felt for years to come it's not

8:09 am
however this still barely a lot of questions how this film will be implemented so 1st of all will the formula be implemented under control of the web of side under government control and the national control so that many steps that have to become so that until they can be steps for what which will perhaps in the end lead to the dumbass wheaten coming back to you cranium control and also the border between ukraine and question. being back on the control of the government which is the most important aspect now that the new ukrainian president volodymyr selenski he was elected partly on a promise of bringing peace to ukraine how important is it for him to deliver on that promise it is very important and also he wanted an aliyah summit he wanted the summit only in september so it has been the russian side which has postponed this summit as a lens give us a very important that takes place before the end of this this is part of his company also back home he's facing anti-government protests protests for the 1st
8:10 am
time this is not because they demand they demand peace from selenski absolutely but also because he claims that inflatable capitulation that selenski since he is an inexperienced political will make too many concessions to the russian side also his polling weightings have to climb from 70 to about 50 percent so he is and the pressure to deliver concrete results now the leaders of ukraine and russia are meeting here of course for these negotiations but germany and france are also part of the talks what's at stake for them that's so interesting because the 2nd you come out in this talks after that is so for him it's a for the 1st time that he's participating in the normandy farm that the last film that took place in october 2016 so it's already over 3 years my call he wants quick with this moment he already mentioned that he wants some push more with russia and what geo political context he once was solve the conflict for weapons well with russia on the other hand there are 2 issues from the german side that have to be addressed today and that is the gas transit issue for ukraine and also the issue of

8:16 am
women murdered in 2000 more than a quarter of east killed by their husbands they say a major problem is turkey's justice system. because 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 anymore to say we are against these murders and the last to be enforced properly. with god 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 a crime. the crime is not to enforce laws the crime is closing the doors to women asking for help. they. don't stop the women stop the murderous they shout as police try to break up the peaceful demonstration of a few 100 people. there

8:22 am
you can be fired munich and you've consistently stayed at the top of the table for the past 6 to 8 weeks i am surely think that you are in the eyes of many but that said things are still very tight at the top of the tate table. for example as we can see just has a narrow one point lead over night. but take a look at went by and nick as you know what in the nearly half the life scroll down a bit because there they are in place number 7 so they right now would be fighting for a european spot and there's also but going back to god what's so interesting is that at the start of the season we all were talking about the contender us and we are mentioned by an unique dought moment at my 60 actually have been the surprise package has this season and there's been several reasons for that for one there have been exceptional coach in ma who was
8:23 am
a that they've also have they have so many goalscoring options in the likes of to take him on a 3 year and bono but i think what has been key this season is that the ability to take it one game at a time and i think that we need has allowed them to stay focused but they can't all spawning to dream very big we hear the chants at the games where they starting to sing about the title and why not it's been a very long time the last time that didn't mean that when he got tied it was back in 1977 i wasn't even born back then i don't remember this that oh what an exciting time in that particular team let's talk about sunday's match ups and on your own berlin they're having quite a run aren't they yeah they are i mean 5 wins in 7 games and 4 straight at home and i think they really need to vello playing into this team that is really a force to be reckoned with especially when they play on home turf let's see if
8:24 am
that was also the case then they faced could only yesterday and at home. on your own berlin have transformed the study going on to our cost and i into a reputedly fortress picking up $12.00 of their 16 points at home but the travelling heart of cologne fans were optimistic they could buck this trend deep in the drop zone climber and fellow promoted side known as potential for rare away points. that. sitters looked well on track to deliver for their fans early on cologne force union keeper of off the geek events to be at his acrobatic best half an hour in. but toppling union on their home turf isn't easy with one of the league's leaky it's defenses a barely mark sebastian anderson barreled through clones back line in headed union in front one nil in the 33rd minute with a game settle down in humans as fisher changed little at the half now in cruise control doubled their lead just 5 minutes after the break after a quick check anderson 2nd of the night and 8th of the season was confirmed to have
8:25 am
crossed the line. now down to 2 nil hole marcus does doles attempt to rally his troops had little impact colognes least stabs at goal weren't worrying anyone. it finished at 2 nil a cold splash of water on the visitors survival hopes another defense of the fortress has a new unless worried about relegation but there's still work to do. if you take your foot off the pedal and think you're safe in the league you start to lose them so in that sense we haven't done anything yet exact their 4th straight home win but you know an intention far away from the relegation pack for now at least. a fairytale story there for on your own as newcomers to the bundesliga do you think that they have what it takes to avoid dropping back into the relegation zone well terry if you look at the table right now they are in 10th as well they are closer
8:26 am
to a european spot and they ought to the relegation zone ya look on their performances you know speak for themselves and i think what i think so intriguing intriguing about when your own good then is that they're not intimidated it and nice ha that in a performance as a games winning against got off when you get a winning against what mind and also they put up a big fight against by a new name so they have the passion they have the hunger i think they coach has been doing a really good job and if they continue on this track i think they'll stay clear of the relegation zone ok we'll keep an eye on that limo talking from v.w. sports thanks so much. and just reminder the top story we're following for you here today on d.w. news of all kaino has erupted at a popular tourist destination in new zealand at least one person is dead and police say a number of people have been injured they say is currently too dangerous to carry out rescue operations. coming
