years including the upcoming 2020 olympics for the world anti-doping agency says moscow try to stop drug cheats from being exposed. on my bark if you so much for your company everyone the leaders of ukraine and russia have arrived in paris for a meeting about the conflict in eastern ukraine it's the 1st time in 3 years that talks focusing on ending the war there have been held and it's the 1st time that vladimir putin and volodymyr zelinsky have met french president everyone mcconnell and german chancellor angela merkel are brokering this meeting and the conflict started in 2014 and has killed more than 13000 people and displaced more than 1000000 the worst fighting has been in the donbass region and our correspondent
4:02 pm
nick only traveled there and see and filed 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 the whole night without a single shot i don't remember a day like that maybe on the 1st night of the cease fire it's a strange and there's no fire at all you get all nervous we're used to the shooting and. 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 her 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. everyone is tired of the war has parents wives worried about them
4:03 pm
back home but 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 than it does with. but off camera many soldiers are more skeptical they don't want to give up territory regain from the separatists and 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 buses part of ukraine. i don't understand what maclin makan want to do selenski and putin should sit down together drink some fat cut together and put all this
4:04 pm
behind them when you put me to the pub with 3 he and i ok you know we need a united ukraine that's a and we need an end to all this. so people don't have to suffer in these queues anymore at the polls which implore. don't yes but 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 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 will happen will happen. this war needs to and i've lost so
4:05 pm
many comrades already. giving the other sunlight making peace that's going to be to the. repercussions of this war will be felt for years to come it's not just about the minds of grenades the litter this landscape it's about the war in people's heads. nikolay reporting there for you from the dom bassett region and he's now in the french capital where the talks are taking place at the venue the palace at nick this is very much an exactly neglected conflict but still very much of a combat zone as you portrayed what are the chances of 80 enjoyable breakthrough happening at this meeting what are the expectations basically well lower the expectations riding on this are sky high not least because of present selenski comments in the run up to all this he's put in a lot of legwork to make this happen has given the impression that he thinks that
4:06 pm
personal chemistry between him and virginia putin the 2 meeting face to face for the 1st time later on today that that can really change the political gravity of this conflict and create progress that hasn't been possible through traditional negotiations. analysts though are a little more skeptical they don't think that some big bang will be immediately possible what we could see coming out of this is some kind of road map some kind of clear plan of what the next steps are to end this deadlock the really has kept this conflict going for the last 5 years who holds the cards. well this is not just as if president zelinsky is the only one looking to get some kind of solution is sure he was elected on a promise to bring peace to donbass and that is crucial to his domestic agenda but russia also has things that needs to achieve the sanctions regime is really having impact now 5 years on the russian economy stagnating and russia is in need of investment and some kind of reparations with western europe in economic terms but as a political terms there is
4:07 pm
a desire to make some progress there to get back to the table with the european partners i think the real crucial question here will be international support for ukraine the americans obviously are occupied with their own ukraine a fair trump ukraine affair so they're not really in a position to put much diplomatic weight behind the ukrainians here and the real question will now be how many corps and merkel the 2 leaders here who are with president putin and zelinsky what they bring to the table and how much support they give to ukraine or on the other hand put pressure on ukraine to make concessions made and as you alluded to the americans the big absentia party let's talk about mr selenski for a 2nd because he is walking a tightrope for one of the reasons that you mentioned in your reporting how much backing is there in ukraine for mr selenski sitting one on one with mr putin well exactly i mean this is the $1000000.00 question can the political news we who this time last year wasn't even in politics can he really match putin who's been in charge of russia for almost 20 years when it comes to diplomatic godall in terms of
4:08 pm
the fact that they're meeting well i think that is not the big problem but there is a big worry in ukraine that some kind of over. big compromise could be made that would threaten ukraine's positions and represent some way the capitulation or betrayal of the lives of ukrainian servicemen who have been fighting for the country's survival of the past 5 years there have been protests in ukraine and boss weeks and pressure really is being brought to bear on him to make sure that he doesn't come back with a deal that looks like some kind of capitulation before russia do we expect a joint press conference after having said all of that. we do expect them to speak to us later on this evening as always is not an exact science so how this all happens we can't be sure it's doubtless that will have some delays and to keep people waiting as we know but they are expected come and talk to press later today and we will be here following the story to keep you updated on what happens here in paris thank you so much nikolay. next

over alleged links to the murder of a prominent journalist. finland is set to get its youngest ever prime minister 34 year old center in has been nominated by the social democrats who lead the 5 party coalition government all 5 parties now have women at the helm when his appointment is expected to be approved by parliament this week and that would also make her the world's youngest serving prime minister the. nationwide protests in france over a president and many records pension reform policy have entered their 5th day a bus and train services have been scaled down to cope with the strike in paris only 2 metro lines are running and many drove to work instead by 9 am traffic jams around the capital stretched to 600 kilometers. the world anti doping agency also known as wada has banned russia from taking part in international sporting competitions for years
4:13 pm
a water rule. that russia should be punished for manipulating laboratory that data planting fake evidence and deleting files linked to a positive dope in tests that could have helped identify drug cheats all about rules russia out of the upcoming tokyo olympics next year. tokyo 20 twentieth's was supposed to be the final highlight of anastasiya as she called us korea but now she's in a gray zone after the would anti-doping agency banned russia from the coming summer games you look at that the sun had been right it's one thing not to qualify because you're not well prepared you've made mistakes but it's quite another thing when it's because you are punished for other people's mistakes so things will certainly not be easy for fest he called the word anti doping agency wada has approved the recommendations of its compliance panel and that means pending appeal russia is now banned from international sporting events for the next 4 years including the olympics if there is
4:14 pm
a decision being issued according to the. tour the world and quote. it's a mandatory for the i.o.c. but there is some light at the end of the tunnel for russian athletes who can show they are clean and without ties to the state sponsored doping system they'll be allowed to compete in the olympics and in other venues and a neutral ban. all heo assembled is an expert on doping in sport and the journalist who forced broke the story on government sponsored doping in russia well earlier we had the opportunity to ask him if he felt the ban was justified. i guess it's more than 2 thirds. because i think what happened and then russia for 4 years no it's not only doping and it's also a story of doping cover up on a really huge extent on a very very high level for years and this has been supported by the russian
4:15 pm
government and obvious is that try to fabricate evidence that couple of weeks they tried too many prelate many plaited indeed and deleted evidence also on a lot scale so from my point of view is this is appropriate punishment some people even say it's not enough to say. we will have russian athletes with no russian anthem there's no russian flag and they are only allowed to compete under really strict conditions they have to undergo a very strict doping control regime before hand otherwise they are not allowed to compete that means it is a really harsh punishment for the russians and i'm very interested to learn what will happen the next couple of weeks i think they will appeal that decision and they will go to cuss international court for obvious trade and sports and luzon and then we will see if that punishment will be executed yes or no but most of the people say it will happen. there i'll ask you know perspective now from russia on
4:16 pm
and we shall win is standing by in a moscow good to have you with us emily what has been the official response from the russian anti-doping agency. well from the russian anti-doping agency we have heard that this was not an unexpected decision for them they have course said that they were sad about it but actually the director general of rue saga admitted a while back that there had been manipulations in that database he called today for a detailed investigation into what happened for the databases to be handed over to be checked again and he called to account for a clean up for clean sports in russia he even went so far as to call on the russian president to take decisive action he didn't specify what that meant but presumably that may be him essentially calling for resignations in the sports ministry right
4:17 pm
now emily this is a wide ranging decision it also affects the soccer world cup in qatar in 2022 at the waca press conference a journalist asked about the consequences let's take let's take a listen and then i'll pick up from after that. just to clarify can you say whether this means that russia will will not be able to play at the 2022 world cup in qatar . on assuming i qualify but i know there's going to. be fully qualified in. positions in russia cannot participate but it seems most neutral mechanism put in place and neutral they can apply to consist of people on a neutral basis not as representatives of russian so amalie we've got no russian team at the olympic games and no russian team at the world cup i mean this is a major blow. absolutely and i think that's
4:18 pm
exactly how the russian public at least and also many politicians here are perceiving it you may remember that russia was also forced to compete under a neutral flag in the 2018 winter olympics and that the time that was perceived as a huge blow to national pride and we've been speaking today's to some people on the streets of moscow who are also saying that it's a huge blow that it's such a shame for the athletes some were blaming the government and also a lot of people here perceive this is sort of an anti russian campaign of some sort they say you know other countries dope as well and we're the only ones who see the consequences of that and we've seen that mirrored in the response from russian sports officials as well the sports minister here in opposition to what reside is saying has called this visit this decision political and we sure are reporting from moscow russia thank you and back here in the bundesliga.
4:19 pm
cologne find themselves in real trouble at the bottom of the table they failed to win again on sunday when they lost 2 nil against fellow promoted side when you're in berlin on their season could be playing out more differently. when your own berlin have transformed the study. into a repeatable fortress picking up 12 of their 16 points at home but the traveling heart of cologne fans were optimistic they could buck this trend deep in the drop zone cologne were eyeing fellow promoted side known as potential for rare away points. the visitors looked well on track to deliver for their fans early on cologne fortune young keeper of the geek of the to be at his acrobatic best half an hour in. but toppling an yone on their home turf isn't easy with one of the league's leakiest defenses a barely mark sebastian anderson barreled through colognes back line in ahead of union in front one nil in the 33rd minute with the game settle down fisher changed little at the half now and cruise control doubled their lead just 5 minutes after
4:20 pm
the break after a quick check anderson 2nd of the night and 8th of the season was confirmed to have crossed the line. now down to 2 nil hole marcus is doles attempt to rally his troops have 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 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 games so in that sense we haven't done anything yet. their 4th straight home when put to an intense far away from the relegation pack for now at least. next up the golden globe nominations are out for next year's awards and netflix conquer the top categories suggesting
4:21 pm
a new dominance by streaming services marriage story let the way with 6 nominations including best drama the stars of his stuff of this divorced portrait scarlett johannson and adam driver are among the not many. there were 5 knots for the gangster epic the irishman scorsese set work season nominated for best director. was like me fighting wars no easy feat because there is a really large. is here and i still haven't finished watching it so good to have you here with this whole 4th season has kicked off let's talk about next netflix oh my goodness yeah comedy hopefully domination i mean 3 of the 5 best films this the 1st time actually a marriage story end to pope's 1st time the netflix those have been nominated for the best film for the golden globes and they completely dominate not just in the film categories also t.v. the crown got a bunch of nominations another netflix series yeah it really seems that whole the money the billions that netflix has thrown out and i content is is paying off at least when it comes to awards now any surprises so far well i thought was
4:22 pm
interesting guardsman got a 5 nominations but robert de niro who's the star of the irishman didn't get nominated for best actor and he had. a great to see the joe pesci who came back 20 your retirement to play the irishman got a nomination he's my pick i loved him in this in this film what i also was surprising though on the t.v. side was a netflix series that didn't get nominated when they c.s. which is a dramatization of the central park 5 and the miscarriage of justice there i really thought i would be a front runner it didn't get any nominations at all. doesn't give us any we need to teach these phrases to give any indication of who might be up for the oscars coming up at the beginning of the i mean that's always what we look at the golden globes and they've been they've not been pretty good at making the picks last year basically globe winners went on to win in all the major categories and the oscars the globes sort of put the thumb on the scales a bit though because they have categories for drama and comedy so they sort of
4:23 pm
spread their bets a bit but if you look at the nominations and then the winners there's usually a good match up thing i think to look at this year though is because netflix has been so dominant here at the nominations the film industry hollywood the pick the oscars the. they really don't like that flex because of their policy of not having their film shown in theaters and just having shown on the streaming services so that could be an interesting conflict to see if the oscars are going to fall the globes and say all right star says the marriage story and obama back to such great films we're going to nominate them even though they are on streaming services and are in theaters where we'd like to see the movies talked a little bit about marriage story i haven't really heard that much about all the great you can watch it it's on netflix streaming as we speak it's premiered in venice it's interesting because it's almost a throwback to like kramer vs kramer it's a divorce story very sort of intimate tale of in a wife played by scott hanson adam driver a bit of their love story but the mainly the story of their of their very painful break up wonderfully don i mean i haven't seen a film like this really maybe since the seventy's it was interesting it's
4:24 pm
interesting though that it was done by streaming service because even this is amazingly well acted film the kind of film that would have been dominant at the oscars 2030 years ago those have been moves are almost not being made anymore by the studios so maybe it took a streaming service like netflix to pony up and say we're going to put money on this film we're going to make a movie like this that maybe doesn't have the sort of track record in the theaters that are of a movie or something similar with any conclusions about do you think that the studios might want to rethink regroup and see how they going to deal with the likes of netflix amazon prime i think they're going to have to i mean they're being forced to see already that the studios are starting their own streaming services and on and singing their own series and films i think that's going to be the dominant bit of conversation that we're going to have a next couple of years and we're going to see what the reaction lead to the nominations today and to the future oscars predicting now that i think netflix is going to be pretty strong at the oscars as well and then it's going to force hollywood to move along yeah. these are a lot of you know i mean it's got rock star thank you as always pleasure to have
4:25 pm
