9:03 pm
landing in berlin to try and rally america's allies and prevent a war. unity is the main goal here, blinkin and his german, french, and british counterparts disgust the intense fears that russia may soon invade ukraine. they focus how to credibly deter moscow with warnings of what could follow even as were relentless in pursuing this diplomatic path. will continue to make very clear that if moscow chooses the path of further aggression, we will impose swift and massive cost. if what on was land thing, and that's who we urgently call on russia to take steps towards the escalation, you divide any further aggression would have serious consequences. see it. would it even the cons extensive not 15 but commenced by the u. s. president a day earlier have right questions about whether those consequences really do apply
9:04 pm
to any active aggression. russia will be held accountable. if it invades, it depends on what it does. it's one thing, it's richard, minored, corrosion, and then we end up having a fight about what to do and not do which cetera. but if they actually do what they're capable of doing with the force, the mask on the border, it is going to be a disaster for russia. the white house later try to clarify, insisting that the west would react come, what may. but the issue has highlighted questions over what level of aggression would trigger what kind of response the u. s. has made it clear that it would expect berlin to target the controversial node stream to pipeline which linked germany to russian gas. it's also worth noting that gas is not flowing through nordstrom to yet, which means that the pipeline is leverage for germany, the united states and our allies, not russia. for now though, there is another round of diplomacy coming up. antony blinkin will meet his russian
9:05 pm
counterpart in geneva on friday, saying as one of the last chances to find a way of avoiding war. if a morning i'm joined by jessica berlin, she's a u. s. political analyst who's based here in berlin, a familiar face here to our viewers. it's good to see you again. jessica. let's talk about where we are in this diplomatic sprint by antony blinkin. he was in key of yesterday here in berlin today. do you see a diplomatic way out of this crisis? at this point, the only way out of this crisis is their deterrence. anthony blinkin has already been pushing hard behind the scenes for germany to take a stronger stance against russia's aggression for the you to tow a stronger line. and now he's here in person to push that at the end of the day dialogue will not solve this issue. anthony lincoln, tomorrow is going to have to make perfectly clear to russia that the cost of invading ukraine will be higher. ok then the cost of invasion and if this does
9:06 pm
not happen, i fear that we will have to calculate with some sort of invasion or incursion year . the consequence is we hear a lot about that the u. s. has warned that it is going to be a disaster for russia if russia invade ukraine, but no one wants to spell out exactly what those consequences will be. why use their own? russia is one of the use largest trading partners. not only in energy, i mean trade between russia and the you in 2020 accounted for over a 170000000000 euros rushes, also germany's largest gas importer. so the economic cost to europe, to serious consequences for russia would also be dire. and this is why we haven't seen a clear line yet, but this is hopefully what secretary blinking, i'm is pushing for with the quad group. i'm and at the e u level to make sure that at least behind the scenes, that we agree on
9:07 pm
a price tag, that europe and germany are willing to pay economically, to preserve security and peace in europe. jessica, it was it. it was important for anthony blake and to stop here in berlin today to talk with the quad group. ugh, but there's, there are still some del, are the europeans really on the same page in the united states when it comes to what to do if russia does indeed invade ukraine? not yet. i'm even yesterday we saw from president my call in france proposing that the you should also open up a bilateral channel. i'm of dialogue with russia. this obviously did not help projects on the unity that the united states was hoping for. i'm also president biden's comments about a minor incursion, somehow potentially being acceptable to the united states. definitely did not help these kinds of gas and missteps, however, are hopefully what now,
9:08 pm
after the consequences we've been seen on how this weakens natives messaging. i'm hopefully now all nato member countries will tow the line tighter and tighten up because at this point in the crisis, every day matters and we need to show in europe a united fronts starting right now. otherwise, this could indeed play into the kremlin hands and leave us in a situation where they act before nato is in a position to presents a clear plan of response. your time is running out, we will be watching to see what happens tomorrow. at those talks in geneva. jessica berlin is always jessica. we appreciate your analysis. thank you. thanks, brent will at least 29 people have been killed. they stampeded liberia's capital monrovia, many of them children, wards, crowds had gathered for a christian prayer service on wednesday evening. witnesses say the stampede ensued after robbers with machetes began attacking worshippers. a pile of sous is all

170 islands, tries to start rebuilding its life. damning accusations denied against former pope benedict. the 16th, the new report accuses him of failing to take action in for child sex abuse cases here in germany. now that in that report, it finds that he covered up clerical, sexual abuse. when he was cardinal joseph rat's younger archbishop of munich, the report identified almost 500 victims of abuse between 945 in 2019 in and around munich. turning a blind eye to sexual abuse. that was the definitive conclusion of a report published in germany on thursday commissioned by the catholic church. it accuses the form a pontiff of knowing about sexual abuses committed by priests. while he was
9:16 pm
archbishop of munich a post he held between 19771982. the report said the offending priests in bavaria during his tenure were conscious the kept in pastoral carols, visiting and supporting members of the community. the current archbishop of munich, comprising called the report, an indispensable building block in the healing process. if you know sure, appreciate it. i am shocked and ashamed for me having to begin the encounters with the victims of sexual abuse. have brought about a turning point where they have changed my navarro name and continue to change my perception of the church and ease of widely benedict who stood down from his rolling 2013 has denied the claims but the law is investigating what categorical
9:17 pm
he was aware in exquisite, in a total of 4 cases, we concluded that the then archbishop cardinal ruts singer is to be accused of misconduct in cases of sexual abuse. and those who represent victims say, the catholic church must do more. we believe on there they had become better and training of lay people are in a code of protection programs for children. but in terms of on dealing with the victims and not protecting of the perpetrators, it's still the same old system. benedict profit his resignation as pope ameritas last year. an offer declined by the current pontiff. but thursdays report is just the latest in a torrent of abuse claims that have come to light in recent years. further exposing the decades of hidden crimes committed by the catholic church
9:18 pm
with me in the studio now was martin gag. he's a religious affairs correspondent, martin. what was your response to today's report? well, i didn't think about my own reaction to be quite honest, but i think of the bad i can say that i had the 2 usual ones that i had over the last 20 years following this. and the last 10 really doing it in a professional, in a professional capacity, which is absolute shock. and then a sense of the job. i mean, so, you know, it's a sense of absolute outrage. i mean, the story is particularly brutal because you're talking about a 12 year old kid. i mean, they have, i have a child. so i see my child in the stories repeated over and over. and i, i not only cringe. i mean, i really just have nightmare at the same time. um and i realize the church has attempted, or at least i mean for the sake of public consumption. but it's very clear, very, very clear that this has simply not gone far enough yet. search in not police itself. you will you say deja blue. i mean we've heard cases like this reports of
9:19 pm
the amount time and time again. i'm thinking about what we heard from france last year is this wouldn't different in any way. well, it is, it is a former poll, and so i think that this is sort of the majorly france and this what a lot of people are sort of, you know, pointing out that the church was courageous enough to actually go for an investigation that could potentially implicate and ultimately did a former pope and sort of head leaving head of the church, former head of the church. so i think that that's meant to be the difference. the fact however, is that, you know, it's not that the previous cases where any list outrageous in this one. so the question to be asked here is not really, and i have said this today certain time, so forgive me, but it's not really just about redress. it's not really just about a pope having been in an arch vera shop position and not doing what he had to do a misconduct according to the to the, to the lawyers. but the question is, how do we prevent this happening in the future?
9:20 pm
and it is not clear that the church actually, he has cleaned up attacked so we don't know what is really happening in the water right now in the abuse victims. what expect other than, you know, getting an apology? well, apologies will of course come, because this has become men of the specialty of the church. i mean, the catholic church presents its apologies every time one of these questions, i think that the church, the crimes can not be undone and the kind of life's had been ruined to the extent they've been ruined. that will never be taken back. not only by the church, but as a society in some way, i have begun to think that we have become complicit in this by just sheer force of repetition with it down with it is we become outraged. and then we just let it kind of slide until the next that will become desensitized because i think it happens over and over and over again. i have to say that i think it's because it happens over and over. and i think because in some sense it's impossible really to cope with this. i mean, i had been reading this reports for the better part of 10 years. i don't wish this up on my words. and so i think that the question really is about who are we are
9:21 pm
society and what kind of things do we tolerate from the institutions in our midst? and you know, again, that the brutality of it is we're talking about children entrusted to the institution. yeah, that's exactly right to our religious affairs correspondent martin gac martin. as always, we appreciate your analysis even even if it is a dark story like this. thank you. you're welcome. we're target president, richard, ty, every other one is vowing to bring the soaring inflation in his country under control . he refuses to stop pressuring turkey central bank to keep cutting interest rates . the policy have sent the turkish lira into free fault. our correspondent julie hall reports tonight from istanbul for the m. n. g has to print new price stickers, mere eggs toilet paper. almost everything he sells in his small shopping is symbols . katy, katy street, has become more expensive again. normally does on it and you can take this pack of
