5:05 pm
how can i put this into context 1st? how common is an incident like this in germany? well, why we might hear a very of shootings that universities and schools in the us. very often this is a very rare occurrence in germany. we have had terrorist attacks in germany over the past few years, like in the lot of countries in europe. but school shootings themselves are very rare. they've only been 6 in all of german history in the last century anyway. and the last one was in 2009 when 9 people were killed. so as i said, this is shaken, not just tyler berg, but the country itself, because this is something that with german is strict gun control laws is a very rare occurrence here. right? i mean, i see several putting on late developments. i me and thank you. let's sir, have a brief look at some other stories that are currently in the headlines. a former popa, benedict, the 16th has admitted to giving a false statement during a german probe into sexual abuse. the pope falsely claimed he was not present at

5:10 pm
family. i don't have time to think about what i will do if something happens with your good news. that was your fee. i have friends in kiev, joe and i love ukraine. are you? i'm against war, your voice roster bismark him a war would be pointless. there wouldn't be one. all we see right now is an attempt to world wide to heat up the atmosphere at an attempt by certain people to make others believe that one site is planning to attack the other. no, mom, when you got the always said though, we don't want war. ukraine is a brother, nation for us, malicious why war? this is a political fight with the but it is good, but we'll most get my presence here and over there. do have something in their heads. at least they don't seem empty. so war won't happen. can you believe that? meanwhile, the european union says it's ready to impose quote, never seen before. economic sanctions. should russia the site to invade ukraine? you foreign ministers meeting in brussels,
5:11 pm
say they want to double financial assistance to ukraine. the group is also holding talks via video link with the u. s. secretary of state. the kremlin denies that it is planning innovation, accusing the west of quote, escalating a conflict. ryan arts at whittaker her is a member of germany's green party. he is an u lawmaker and sits on the foreign affairs committee, sir. welcome back to dw news. germany now finds itself in the eye of the storm, of discussions in the tenses of geopolitical tensions in europe for quite some time . for international viewers, can you explain where does germany stand right now on the ukraine? russia issue. the german government is very clear in expressing solidarity with our friends in ukraine. and very clear in warning,
5:12 pm
the russian president of escalating the president, entrance and germany a hoss expressed, clear support for a co here and share western strategy of law trying to deter the russian leadership from going to war against you came by signaling that there will be unseen economic sanctions, if that happens, i think germany, lily a house, an own interest and an obligation to show this level of solidarity. now sir, one of the most urgent issues right now is of course the question of whether or not to help arm ukraine. so we can defend itself, jeremy continues to decline to do so. what do you make of that position? well, i think there have been
5:13 pm
a couple of arguments against providing arms to ukraine that i would not chair of some have argued that this should be a prevent that for historical reasons. that of course alludes to the 2nd world war and the aggression of nazi germany. against the soviet union, but i would emphasize that the ukrainian people suffered at least as much under this aggression asked the russian people lead. so we have an obligation towards both of them who are heap the piece if we can. on the other hand, i would argue that at the moment it is more important to focus on preventing a situation where the arms might be helpful. we want to fight the
5:14 pm
exit of the mounting tensions without resorting to military means. and i think emphasizing that and investing, everything we can on that angle is a worth. the contribution were the contribution, none. the less diplomatic efforts to have floundered. how likely is it that germany will have to take on a more muscular approach when it comes to russia, something that its allies wants it to do? i think for all of us, germany, european allies, the united states, there is the same, all pass ahead. and that's not an easy one. we have to show cleared the termination to defend our friends from ukraine without escalating the tension. this is not simple. this also
5:15 pm
requires patience. i am strictly opposed to the opinion that the diplomacy has failed. diplomacy still has the task to deliver and we should not of the impatient with that in that regard. but if push comes to shove, it is clear with germany stance half these tensions and conclusions sir exposed germany's achilles heel, that germany have a massive problem when it comes to being too dependent on russian gas deliveries. and this is something that is not going to go away according to a study that i mandated a couple of years ago from the deutscher institute, the dutch us a fortune in berlin. germany is less the pen than on russian energy
5:16 pm
supplies than many other european nations. i think it's a myth to assume that germany is acting out of dependency. i believe that germany should man up on clearly put the north stream to pipeline all the table a we should not shy back from clearly signaling to the russian leadership that in case they are scenting their troops across the ukraine and border a knew that this pipeline would be stopped together with our wide array of other economic measures. germany, wo lot shy back from that. i bought a car for his a member of germany's green party you while maker and also says on the eel foreign affairs committee. sir, thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. thank you for having me.
