9:00 pm
and here i slept with single people in a room and it was harsh. fair. i even got white hair in learning. the language helped me a lot. this kids to me and create help us trinity to interact with you want to know their story, migrant verifying and reliable information for migrant. ah ah, this is dw news live from berlin, last ditch diplomacy to prevent a war in new crate, amid fears of a russian invasion,
9:01 pm
the u. s. and they don't deliver reply to moscow security demand. they say they're offering the kremlin a peaceful pass out of the crisis. also coming up, the british prime minister under fire force johnson fights for political survival ahead of a report on alleged rule breaking allegations of lockdown parties are fueling calls for his resignation. german lawmakers debate expanding the vaccine mandate. there's already a requirement for health care workers. they have to be vaccinated by march or risk losing their job. and then the u. s. a bid to bring skyrocketing prices under control. the u. s. federal reserve said it will high interest rates as consumers content with the highest inflation in decade. ah, i'm so me. so misconduct is good to have you with us nato. when the united states
9:02 pm
have each delivered their response to moscow, security demands and attentions over russian aggression towards its neighbor ukraine. at recent joint meetings, moscow demanded a guarantee that ukraine would never join nato, and that the alliance would seize military activity in former soviet republics. u. s. secretary of state entity blank and said washington has set out a serious diplomatic path to resolve the conflict. but he added that the u. s. made no concessions to the main demand on nato membership for key f. and speaking a short time ago, nato secretary general young stoughton berg said it was time for both sides to improve dialogue and diplomacy by re establishing their respective offices and brussels and in moscow. and here is more of what stilton burke had to say. we colon rashaw once again to immediately the escalate. the situation now thought firmly, beliefs the attentions on this agreements must be sold through dialogue on diplomacy,
9:03 pm
not to force or the threat or force. so today, nato has conveyed or written proposals to russia. rodonna song were those were done, so in puddle, we do not use thirds. for more of the story, we can speak to gustavo, gristle, he's a security policy expert from the european council on foreign relations. hi, gustavo, could to have you with us. we've heard there that moscow has now received a, the written responses to security, admit demands both from washington and from nato. do you think this will move the needle at all in the diplomatic progress? or unfortunately, i don't think it will change much because most careless demands for us britain in a way that actually a rejection of them or a polite rejection us that might have gotten it. now, it was, i'm, i'm every temple and i, and this was consciously choosing the moscow to write it in
9:04 pm
a way that i make the west and i to reject it. the thing is what happens down to will most or use this as a pretext for war, or will some of the, as a said, polite rejections that said that with some concerns and issues, there will be put paul forwards or to negotiate on them. welders be taken as honorable or friends to de escalate the situation. that depends where the russia takes the sanctions threat. seriously, that depends whether russia things start a war now will cause more trouble than even gain from given the increased support of european and us nations, to ukraine, particularly in the military field that remains to be seen with this yet. ok, so you say that this back and forth of these letter is actually not going to make much difference in terms of a diplomacy in dialogue. you mentioned sanctions there and whether mosque i will
9:05 pm
take that threat seriously. and you have said that only very severe sanctions will have any effect on blood. you put this decision making. so what do you define as severe sanctions? like pertinent things start, russia can only survive to 21st century if it's an empire, a landfill. hospitals by population on, by governing over industrialized or sort of industrialized cities and incentives and that into tutoring. so he thinks that this is a very important strategic objective for russia, and you will only scare him if you put up sanctions. that would foil the plan for russia being a strong and point t and survival in the 21st century as you want it to be. that mean sick tauriel sanctions in the energy sector, one way or the other. and a large decoupling of the european and north american consumer market from russia, because that on the mines rushes financial resources and it's technological and
9:06 pm
societal bonds to that market. and to, to, to european technology stella, such that russia also perceives necessary for being sort of the kind of from the list modernized, great power cited wants to be other kind of diplomatic shamming. and even freezing pulled his personal assets as important. that is as a mess it, i don't think it will make him rethink what he's doing, but a lot of medical stuff. is it really that clear that vladimir putin is intent on invading your crate? because there do seem to be real questions being asked about that here in berlin and certainly in brussels as well. yes, a lot of european countries think that the situation is not that serious. the problem, i mean, i'm a military expert, i'll look from it from really per point of view. and if i look at the formations, aren't the logistics at the preparation. it's pretty serious. but you also see other girls than you're russia usually uses. why need leverage is exercises or,
9:07 pm
or deployments to threaten or to bol cain are the, the threats against the ukraine have been pretty consistent. the demands have been out there. and the willingness to use military force have been on the line by putting himself a lever off himself or at, with the same wording consistently over the last 3 months. so i think we should take that seriously. ok, very interesting. we'll have to leave it there because that bristol, from the european council on foreign relations, thanks for sharing your perspective with us today. thank you very much. british prime minister boris johnson is bracing for the results of a report that could spell the end of his time in office and internal investigation is looking into his participation in a series of parties that took place while millions and the u. k. were enduring corona virus locked out. on wednesday, johnson faced
9:08 pm
a fresh grilling and parliament over the scandal that's become known as party gate . but he once again refused to step down. i would prefer to be led by laura than a lie or will he now was r o endo ran high in the u. k. parliament as m p. 's questioned prime minister borders. johnson lawyer not a leader booked opposition. leaders one johnson to resign it saying that he lied to the parliament, critical reset it whatever he says in his statement later today or tomorrow won't change the fact. isn't this a prime minister on a government showed nothing but contempt for the decency, honesty and respect. but define this country. oh, this is beaca, we love this country. i'm a doing everything. you know, of course, of course he wants me out of the way. this is because he wants me out of the way he does. i caught many people pools. of course,
9:09 pm
i didn't know who is more to read as many people may want me out of the way, but i'll tell you the reason he wants the other way, because he knows that this government can be trusted to deliver the u. k. leader is in a political crisis over allegations that he attended parties during lockdown public and rick johnson wants to continue in office various other m p. 's believe he has become a distraction from other important issues facing the u. k. every nick, it's sucking attention from the real issues facing the product and the sort and cost of living have pushed millions of families into poverty. it is time to get this over with sure. the pride mother saw the dog public trust in johnson's leadership is at an all time low. one pool suggests that 2 thirds of the british want him to resign. no one should be above the law even in the prime minister.
9:10 pm
again, it was the 1st on the 19th of june, my baby was 8 days old. my mother couldn't travel over to come and see her. she didn't meet her grandchild. total child was, you know, 6 months old because of restrictions and you know, that all that kind of stuff. the findings of an internal investigation headed by civil so and so gray are expected soon and be from johnson's party. are waiting on that to decide whether to hold a no confidence booked right to your christian and our correspondent in london. charlotte shall some pell has been following the story for us. the speculation at the prime minister's political days are numbered is not going away. his face repeated calls from the opposition to go even several members of his own party of publicly called for him to resign. and now this criminal investigation into allegations of gatherings during lockdown restrictions now the prime minister again to day in a boisterous prime minister's question. time said that he wasn't going to resign, so his fate really lies in the hands of members of his own party. in many,
9:11 pm
it's thought a waiting for the findings of an internal inquiry. the su gray report into these alleged gatherings. now what they really want to know is the extent to which the prime minister is implicated, and whether or not he lied to parliament, something that would be a resigning matter. now it looks to night like that report is not going to come through, at least not in time for the prime minister to make a statement on it to m. p. 's as promise. so the white continues this purgatory for the prime minister's own party and for the public to hear the findings of that report all the while these allegations as they drip feed into the public domain, becoming more and more damaging for the prime minister's own party. now to some other stories making news around the world, u. s. supreme court justice steven briar will retire in june. briar is one of the liberal justices on the court. the announcement gives president joe biden, an opportunity to nominate
9:12 pm
a replacement biden's predecessor donald trump secured the appointment of 3 supreme court justices. the european union has condemned monday's coo and the western african nation of burkina faso, the used top diplomat as calling on the military junta to restore constitutional order and release. all of those attain starting with the countries ousted president . rocca boring, people across australia have taken to the streets to protest australia day, many carrying the australian aboriginal flag. the contentious anniversary marks the arrival of the british, whilst earlier in 1788, protest, her se, it explicitly links the country's national identity to colonialism and they want the date changed. and po francis has called on parents not to condemn their children. if they are gay, he made the comment in his weekly general audience at the batt. again, it is another gesture of outreach to the l. g. b t q. community which has long been marginalized by the catholic church,

9:14 pm
drove ice from the last territory it held in syria. kurdish forces hold the city and control the prison, which was attacked last week by a fighters in an attempt to free their comrades. the children are probably witnessing after all said that, no, i should witness. they needed to get out of the prison as soon as possible. and this is exactly why we have all for a human history order for yourself and other humanitarian organizations to be able to evacuate in as soon as possible so that they can finally, we see the children stuck in sight, have been held for years without legal recourse but many of their home governments see them as a danger. even know that the fire fight has ended, their troubles are far from over. german lawmakers have started debating mandatory vaccines to slow the spread of the corona virus. the debate is taking place with
9:15 pm
the armor, cranberry, and tightening its grip and sending infection rates soaring to record levels. but lawmakers and the german public were main divided over requiring everyone to get vaccinated. ah, these people have already formed their opinions on mandatory vaccination. they disapprove, that's why they've taken to the streets of central berlin while the mattress disgust next door in the german parliament in site the bonus tag views a more diverse imminent chancellor will have shots on his health minister favor compulsory shots for every one over the age of 18, but some members of their coalition partner parties have different views. is pleasure. all right, i've, i'm speaking as a representative of all colleagues in this house who proposed the so called middle way. we make vaccination mandatory for people over 50 for those who are particularly vulnerable. everyone else over 18 must attend a mandatory vaccination advice session for that is nick murphy of i saw her in the
9:16 pm
high, efficient antiviral drugs, also an option, for instance, if you want to help protect our intensive care units in our hospitals from overload . mia? hi, don't dare of a final verdict to day, but we have to examine these, my la alternatives to the best of our ability. listen on this and we're from. it's a 1st exchange of views here, and the bond is talking and pretty much every possible opinion has been expressed by some one or other during the more than 3 hour long debate. the majority of the electric believe making vaccines mandatory is the right step. the irish vice for the in i'm in favor of mandatory vaccination because i think we should watch out for each other and find a way out of this pandemic. as soon as possible. dust is upon him. you might so and give the guns really i think it's a very difficult topic, even if i believe every one should be vaccinated because the integrity of one's own bodies basically something nobody should interfere with. and so it's been of you
9:17 pm
and i am personally against making lexi nation mandatory for certain groups of the population only, for example, for health care personnel. to me this would be the verse solution, and i say either you make it mandatory for everyone off on no one out african with views. this divided both in an outside parliament. a potential vaccine mandate won't come into effect before summer. many experts say that will be too late to cup skyrocketing infection rates. let's check in on some other developments in the pandemic. the u. s. has shipped 400000000 coven 19 vaccine doses to countries in need. part of its pledge to donate more than a 1000000000 doses to low income countries. a sweden is extending current corona virus restrictions by another 2 weeks. meanwhile, neighboring denmark is moving to lift most restrictions and announced that it no longer consider is covered 19 a socially critical disease. and eastern european countries, including poland,
9:18 pm
hungary and the czech republic, have all hit their highest infection rates of the pandemic. the region does have some of europe's lowest vaccination rates. us interest rates are set to climb the federal reserve plans to raise its key rate in a bid to fight surging inflation. prices in the us are increasing at rates not seen since the early 19 eighties, driven by energy and food costs. in march, the central bank is likely to raise interest rates for the 1st time and newly 2 years and wind down its asset purchasing program that could help cool the economy, which has been overheating and recent months. pushing prices up. and chelsea delaney from d. b. d, w. business is tracking the story for us. i shall see. what do you make of this news from the fed? this news that soon they will be looking at these, raising these interest rates. right. also me, i think there shows that this era of basically extremely loose monetary policy of central banks just flooding the economy in the world. economy with money is coming to an end,
9:19 pm
where we heard from the fed today is that they do soon think it will be appropriate to start raising interest rates. that likely means that they will start doing that and march, and they cited 2 things here. first is the job market. so the labor market in the u . s. has recovered a lot. unemployment as, as back below 4 percent. it's almost at a record low, or really the bigger problem here for the fat and for the us inflation. inflation is at a 40 year high at 7 percent in the last reading. that means for a lot of people, things are getting a lot more expensive people purchasing power is really starting to a road. and so the fed to help offset that is going to have to raise interest rates basically that it's kind of like making money more expensive. it means that people are going to have to pay more to borrow, to get a mortgage to buy a car as well. as companies, and that should help to bring down some of this demand and cool off inflation. but with that also slow the economy down. yeah, that's definitely a major concern. and a lot of critics say that because the fat has waited so long because they were so
9:20 pm
insistent for such a long time that this inflation was going to be transitory. that would be temporary . a lot of people are afraid they are going to have to move very aggressively here . the fed likely will raise rates at least 3 times this year, potentially for maybe even 5 times. so that is a pretty significant constraint on, on the economy. so we're talking about people having to pay more for, you know, for mortgages for cars, companies having a hard time raising money. and that could ultimately mean that companies start, you know, not hiring as much. so there, there definitely is a significant trade off for the economy. and what would that mean for the rest of the world? yeah, i mean, this has implications for literally the entire world. because the fact is, for one is in charge of the world's largest economy. what it does, if it starts slowing the economy that will have an effect on the rest of the world . the other problem is that a lot of emerging markets have borrowed trillions of dollars worth of of bonds in us dollars. so once the fed starts to raise interest rates,
9:21 pm
that means that there are borrowing costs are going to go up as well. so for emerging markets in particular, for the most one or more countries like argentina and brazil, turkey, this could be a major crisis for them or a big implications there are chelsea delaney from dw business thanks very much for that report. and the president of the international football body fall gianni infant tino has been pushing for a by any a world cup, addressing the council of europe in front. you know, controversially suggested more world cups could prevent migrant deaths. here's what he said. we need to find ways to include the entire world to give hope to africans so that they don't need to cross the terrain in, in order to find maybe a better life. but more probably deaf in the sea. we need to give up what you want it is, and we need to give dignity not by giving charity but by allowing the rest of the world as well to participate. let's talk more about those comments. chris
9:22 pm
harrington from the to the sports is with us. hi, chris, it sounds like what infantile is saying there is more world cups would save lives. and needless to say, that is a controversial statement. so tell you what he said, definitely. you know, he's been going around on this tour trying to promote doubling up on the world cups . and his comments come as spanish authorities report, there are 18 debts, deaths of migrants flee north africa for the canary islands. and the criticism came with the quickness on social media, football supporters, europe tweeted, you know, how can hello, can infant you know, go using debt to push this plan for profit, because that was the main push. and the reasoning infants you know, has been giving you know why he wants to double up on the world cup and also kick it out for footballs, equality, and inclusion organization. pretty much say it's completely unacceptable to think fit money and profit for fever can solve these migrants or crisis because lean
9:23 pm
a war torn country obviously is very serious. and it's very clear, you know, that the link is made and a kind of comes off like comments from a colonizer, in my opinion, a lot of backlash on the internet as you're saying, how has infant tina responded to this? well, he did back track, you know, he was addressing the council of europe, the candidates levy, human rights organization. he said his words were taken out of context. he was pretty much a just addressing those people in power rather than just trying to link his plan of having to rural cups with is solving, you know, this issue that has been plaguing the mediterranean sea and migrate over 1300 migrants have died. not only from africa, but also from the middle east, you know, and i think he's just trying to say face at this point with his recent opposed to backtrack. and why does he want to double the number of world cups in the 1st place? will money, you know, they stand a profit over 4000000000 euros if there are,
9:24 pm
you know, more rural cups. you know, it's an uphill battle already. you know, some governing bodies. you wafer, you know, been one of them had threatened to boycott, you know, the idea of having to rural cups and even with to real cups there. it's even in conflict with the summer games the i'll see it, you know, don't like the idea as well because 2030 to that schedule, you know, for the summer games and that be a problem. the only ones that seem to be of support are all of the african nation states because they do stand to earn a profit, but hopefully he will come to his senses and we don't see that materialize. chris harrington from d. w sports as always. thank you. thank you. i had a new exhibition in the south western german city of baton barton is drawing attention to the duty and the plight of the world's coral reefs under threat from climate change. but there is a twist, the burden museum crowd sourced a project from thousands of dedicated crochet fans from around the world. he's in just their fingers hooks and yarn. they are fashioned

a masterpiece of handicraft in honor of a natural wonder. take a look. ah, the living wonder rendered. den crochet. thousands of women have spent hour after hour clicking their needles in deep concentration. a collective effort to mingled with an ecological message. literally the day we started our project, christine job, that if the great barrier reef, if a died out, al willie reeves would be something to remember it fine in 2005. that was a joke. twin sisters, christine and margaret, that time. fast called on people to crochet corals in 2005 together. they wanted to build an entire reef. little did they know they would be hitting the zeitgeist on the head almost 2 decades later. combining climate change in
9:26 pm
environmental protection with their own feminist approach. when we started the project, we didn't know how many people might participate and we thought maybe 2 thirds women, one 3rd men, but in fact it's been 99.99 percent women of the 20000 more than 20000 people have now participated. but it's the celebration of the women's work that is the important thing. or one of these women is mounting ashton, a cow as a crochet enthusiast. she is particularly proud of the project. you hop on go found me the, i know i started with one, and within 2 months i made around $270.00 of them. they weren't easy to make money comes on of off for her stolen. what might look like simple stitching is actually complex mathematics called hyperbolic geometry. an hipaa bodies cells into other flu. hyperbolic refers to the area that's created by adding another stitch, one martin. this area then goes bigger and bigger. he even grows,
