internal inquiry. it could come as soon as to day. the report looks at multiple alleged lockdown parties at the british prime minister's residence, the london metropolitan police, have also opened an investigation into the gatherings. johnson maintains that no rules were broken, but pressure over the party gate scandal is growing by the day. boris johnson is under fire again for attending his own birthday party. at downing street in june of 2020 london's metropolitan police have now launched an inquiry in don is do i well, the mit decision to conduct his own investigation. but as i believe this will help to give the public with clarity it needs and helped to draw a line under matters. at the time, coven restrictions did not allow socializing in doors. and a series of leaks suggests that a string of illegal social gatherings took place at downing street. this particular
9:03 am
one was a surprise thrown by his wife and attended by several others. what we know is that 30 people gathered that his wife was there. and that the interior designer was there, as well as if it was my birthday. ah, and my wife and an interior designer rock trumpet work. ah, that was kristi's k o birthday cake and a celebration. it pushes the rules, label off as the investigation looms like coals for johnson to resign are increasing across the political spectrum. yes, i think the public made their minds on i think public opinion has already concluded that he broke the rules that he might on that he hasn't told the truth about it. i mean, he hasn't got the authority to lead the country when we're in the middle of huge challenges and therefore he has to go for the good of the country. for now,
9:04 am
johnson may still sound bullish discount, but if enough, conservative impedes decide delita has gone too far. the prime minister could be forced to resign by apologizing, more rejoined by our correspondent, beg at mass in london for get bores. johnson will be facing questions in parliament today. what's he up against? it's very, very serious for him. terry. it's not just one allegation that he might have broken the rules in a small way, but it's really a series of allegations about a series of parties that allegedly took place in downing street where he lives and works, but also across wide whole. so it's about the culture in government and, and that's where many british people are just really, really angry about what they're hearing. they see their own restrictions that they were under. they know that they, they couldn't meet other people in doors. they couldn't attend funerals off of
9:05 am
family members. they were not there when loved ones were dying in hospital. so all this has happened on a grand scale. and meanwhile, the impressionist, that those people who made those strict rules really didn't care about them, and that makes people very, very angry. and that really puts the moral authority of forest johnson at question here. now, johnson is being investigated on 2 levels. there's the police investigation and an internal investigation. the results of the internal investigation, i understand, could be coming soon. any idea when that will be released. this is the subject of much speculation here in london at the moment. it's a, it's a new, a report by a civil servant and she expect said to be released in full is what we understand. now it could be published as soon as today, the ah, the understanding is that it's actually finished and a, reportedly,
9:06 am
there are some juicy details and that report already about photos with why showing wine bottles and also the prime minister. so that report, if that does get released today, that will give a lot of their conservative m. p 's, who now have to decide about doris. johnson's future will, will give them a lot of food for thought. well calls for johnson's resignation or growing louder burger, as we all know. does he still have support sufficient support within his own party to hold on opinion amongst his m p. 's, who are really determining about his future seems to be divided. there are some who are trying to brush this off. they say he was ambushed with a birthday cake was a surprise party. he didn't really know about. it's not his food. somebody else said, well, that has to be a sensor for top proportion. if the prime minister gets served
9:07 am
a slice of cake in his office, what's the big deal? but there are others who take as much more seriously. and we know that one former minister david davis has asked him to resign in parliament. so there are others who are very, very angry about it and it takes 54 of his members of his own party in parliament to actually launch a vote of no confidence express. ah, their wish to do that. and then this would happen. of course, the other opportunity would be for poorest johnson to resign, but we really don't see any sign of that happening soon just yet being a thanks so much our lunch correspond. it burgomaster, you as president joe biden says he might impose personal sanctions on president bud me, a putin of russia, if russia in bates, ukraine. that warning comes ahead a multilateral talks in paris to day aimed at defusing,
9:08 am
the crisis. the leaders of germany and france met in berlin to coordinate their response. they say they're committed to resolving the situation through diplomacy, but they also renewed warnings that moscow would pay a heavy price for invasion. several western nations have put troops on alert and stepped up arms deliveries to ukraine, and eagerly awaited arrival at keith airport. military equipment sent by the united states to shore up ukraine as it braces for possibly russian invasion. it's the 3rd shipment, but it's not enough to resist a bigger and better equipped army government official say bit to headphones. you please help us to convince the german government to be more proactive dba. so again, via we urgently need defensive weapons, often visit online. we're london when not in night, so i know you, nobody will send us troops and not even the american, his honor. we have to defend ourselves such i didn't. but germany's new government
9:09 am
has not answered the calls at a meeting with french president, a man when micron and berlin chancello left shots once again ruled out sending heavy weapons to p. if suffering gives us good. there are reasons for this which of course to stem from development over past years and decades optimistic. nevertheless, we have of course done a lot to actively support economic development and victim and the development of democracy in ukraine. with financial possibilities, spell and international responsibilities that we have just gotten diva lisa, and that's why ukraine knows that it can rely on germany. and i think that also shows politics to a large extent, an approach that has earned berlin, heavy criticism from some of its eastern european partners and from kia itself. and while german and french representatives prepared to meet with their ukrainian and russian counterparts on wednesday to seek it a pragmatic solution, some ukrainians are preparing for the worst on the outskirts of their capital.
9:10 am
these civilian volunteers are undergoing military training to defend their country on their own. if need be. from one hour joined by our correspondence uri was chateau in moscow and mathias bellinger in chia mathias representatives of ukraine, russia, germany, and france are meeting in paris to they. what's the most that you crane can realistically hope for in that meeting? i don't think anybody expects an outcome of from this meeting or any any, any very specific result. um where that a woods turn the events. the most important thing is to keep talking because there is, of course, the fear that sir, if talking stops her shooting might start. and her, the other thing that's important to ukraine, this is the only formats ah, where ukraine and russia are sitting at the same table or the other, or talks that we've been seeing in the past few weeks were they were between the u
9:11 am
. s. or european countries and ukraine on the one hand or the u. s. and u, p. u, european countries and moscow on the other hand. and while a germany and her friends are not the most powerful brokers. the good thing about this form it is that ukraine is at the table. hearing russia has amassed over a 100000 troops near the ukrainian border, backed up a boss of heavy military hardware. has moscow shown any willingness to pull back those troops and deescalate this situation while terry, if you see those russian soldiers as of what i believe they were intended for, namely, as a show of strength, as intimidation as a threat, and not as the real preparation for war as an today's talks of this also play an important role for the russians. as the military build up is just creating a high stakes back dropped, of the political one. and that the political aspect means diplomacy are the russian
9:12 am
goal is to use the 10s of thousands of troops. it has stationed air, all the ukraine, and border as the leverage to in for us. it's political goals. the russian backed separatist in eastern ukraine and don bass want autonomy and russia wants ukraine to be part of it's fear of influence. also, the ongoing conflict with ukraine has made economical issues with the country complicated for russia. so if today's talks lead to a lasting peace between the 2 countries that that would be economy cli beneficial for russia as well. but moscow is going into today's negotiations with the different assumptions that the last time our president vladimir putin certainly has international media attention, even if he hasn't necessarily gotten to any respect on the international stage. and also rush us actual goal as stop to near to eastern expansion is now known to every one. mathias, several countries have stepped up, arms deliveries to ukraine. ukraine desperately wants those arms. germany has so
9:13 am
far, refused to help. how important are these armed deliveries for ukraine's defense? well, in ukraine, people are not so sure that russia their door this sir, troops are just a show of an invasion, is possible, although the ukrainian government is not, or actually is not convinced it might happen. they are still keeping the calm, but the possibility is there and these in they, these arms deliveries. they're most important as, as a way of deterrence. everybody knows that the ukranian army is not able to defeat the russians in the case of an attack and her. and it does not have all these high tech systems that russia has. but these arms are mostly meant to
9:14 am
inflict as much harm on an invading army as possible, their light weight, anti tank weapons that would make an evasion more costly. the hope is that by rising the costs, there is some kind of deterrence. yuri, what talk talk to us about public opinion in russia, is there a lot of support for hooton's position on ukraine and nato while a just a few weeks ago a terry? nobody he believed seriously that the real war can break out. but that is changing . now. i think can nato's announcement to this week that to the aligns will, is strengthened its presence in the eastern europe, most likely to not only president putin by the ordinary russians, as well by surprise. nay, to wants to move troops to the east in response to moscow's proposal for that's at the headline here. moscow's proposal for that means the list of demands that the kremlin has presented to the americans and natal with the request for written feedback. the fact that that nato is going to deploy more troops close to russia.
9:15 am
the fact that the weapons are being delivered to ukraine and mathias mentioned it. and also that the british and american embassies are withdrawing their stuff from keith. all that is increasing concerns in russia that the real war could break out . our correspondence uri was shatteau in moscow and mathias bellinger in kia. thank you very much, berth now let's catch up on some other stories making headlines to day. poland has begun the construction of a wall along its eastern border with beller roofs. the 186 kilometer wall long wall is aimed at deterring migrant crossings. after thousands attempted to enter poland last year, warsaw accuses revolution authorities of encouraging virus to fly to minsk, and then helping them reach the border. in yemen, the number of dead has climbed to 91 after saudi led coalition airstrikes last week . who the rebels have handed over victims bodies to their families for burial
9:16 am
conflict between the saudi led coalition and ran back hudy's has escalated in recent j u. s. coast guard is searching for $39.00. people reported missing after a boat was found capsized off the coast of florida. according to a survivor of the vessel took to see in the bahamas on saturday. authorities believe the boat was being used for human smuggling. germany has reported its highest ever 7 day incidence rate of covered 19 cases registering over $900.00 infections per 100000 people. health authorities recorded a 164000 new cases. in a single 24 hour period, arise is driven largely by the only cron variant chancellor ola sholtes is pushing for a vaccine mandate as part of germany's containment strategy. lawmakers in parliament will debate compulsory vaccines later today. legislation has already passed requiring vaccines for health care workers, starting in march,
9:17 am
unvaccinated staff could be shut out or even fire. we spoke to a nurse who works in a cove at ward herself, but says she won't get vaccinated, whatever the risk we have again from to day. sabina saluda is working as an alternative practitioner. she offers her patients homeopathy treatments. on other days, she works as a nurse in an intensive care unit. when the pandemic started, she volunteered in a covet ward. even local newspapers reported on the story as mcleana than 20 settling of ease, little fawn above from it is a small intensive care unit. but over 50 percent of it was occupied by corona virus . patients looked at half during my shifts. i've really experienced how desperately patients were struggling for. and then with that that really got to me. rudy puts in dod voltage album lift thing and from her own experience,
9:18 am
she knows that the disease has cost many lives. however, she doesn't want to get vaccinated against cove at 19, even though it will be compulsory for health care workers and germany from much. and that ammonia instead of being vaccinated with the vaccine who's effect, i can't assessable, i'd rather catch the virus. naming, of course, the at that could go badly. but then i would rather excited death on my own tom, as i can kind of video my taught a phone call from him lawmaker and dr. paula p shutter voted for compulsory vaccinations. she wants to prevent patients from being infected by nursing stuff. so this one's a anna, it's our medicine for all of us working in healthcare. it is our job that we do not put our patients at unreasonable risk on. and the cove at 19 vaccination is extremely safe, which is why it is acceptable to enforce it to protect our patients. chosen,
9:19 am
sabina believes an alternative therapy not in vaccinations, despite all the scientific proof that they work. most health care workers are vaccinated, but sabina could now lose her clinical job. though to the focus of commons, i am on our back. should that really happen and my employer would say 50, but we are a danger to the patients, vaughn. then i will accept that, and then i will not work there anymore. and now add on to our biden data. she would then be missing out on several 100 euros a month, but that won't change her mind. she says she will remain unvaccinated for more of a spring in our political correspond, manuel shaws emma german parliamentary. so they are debating a blanket mandate for cobra. 19 vaccinations. what are they considering exactly? well tell you what's really important to realize what's happening today is not
9:20 am
a vote. it is a round of discussions only does no mandatory vaccine that will be decided here in germany today. parliamentarians oval parties in favor or against the mandates will debate between them, serve on whether or not they want this mandate to be voted. and on the feasibility of this mandate there are supported and by the president federal president. pon about us time i had highlighted a few days ago, how important debate was he said that of course, the state is under pressure to act timely in this type of pandemic. but also he said that this didn't replace the requirement to weigh up an argument and balance arguments and balance interests at our state. this is precisely what we're going to see today in the parliament that it's a very hotly debated topic. oh, so here within the german population, even if to says of the population are actually in favor of a mandatory vaccine. it's not really black and white,
9:21 am
and maybe let's listen directly to what some people had to say about mandatory vaccine i phases make as i used to know, really it us, it's probably right to make it mandatory for people who work a lot of his others from teachers to health care workers over all, i'd say that i'm in favor, but oh so that i'm not sure azako if vices, honestly, if you're hoping of you info, i'm personally against making vaccination mandatory for some groups of the population only to do, for example, for health care workers, they are, but i, to me this would be the worst solution and i say either you make it mandatory for everyone or for no one followed africa. so to get abo, everybody should do it. julie, of course, gets as damaged on. now there's a big rush, but people have at so much time to get vaccinated up. so i've also done it and i just think it's the right thing to do. so i'll, if i, i'm in favor of making vaccination mandatory because i think that everybody should watch out for each other and make sure that we get out of these pandemic at last
9:22 am
time. you might so and give em if the german parliament does end up approving a blanket vaccine mandate, do they have any idea how it could be enforced? well, here's our way. it might be difficult for germany, for ones or even within the governing coalition. it might be problematic to agree on a mandatory a vaccine why they agreed that a general mandates could be implemented. they agree on it only for people over 18, for example, not all members of the coalition with us. so a go for a mandatory vaccine, freely barrels of down could be a see for example, he's the vice president of the bundle that he warned that a mandatory vaccine would have little effect on the and vaccinated here in germany . and that it would only lead in his opinion to a wave of administrative administrative hurdles or of with the fines being issued against unvaccinated. and that both are the queen's n,
9:23 am
d f t p to free her democrats, or would be in favor of a mandatory vaccine or from a defined age only to protect the most vulnerable. so they would have to agree on that. and of course, on how to implement it within the population. mandatory vaccines, highly controversial or political correspond. manuel shars, thank you so much and here's look at some of the latest developments in the pandemic world wide. the netherlands is opening restaurants, theaters, museums, and cinemas. despite of massive rise in corona virus cases, this comes after mercer public pressure to do so. the czech republic has recorded nearly 40000 new covered 19 infections in the last 24 hours. it's highest daily tally yet, and researchers in switzerland have discovered an antibodies signature that can help identify patients most at risk of developing long coven. they say the discovery could be useful for developing targeted treatments for the conditions.
