4:02 pm
only law. thank you so much for your company. we begin our coverage with the diplomatic stalemate between russia and the west over ukraine. the kremlin says there is little optimism for easing tensions with the u. s. and nato, after both rejected russia's key security demands. the kremlin insisted on legal guarantees, barring ukraine from joining nato. and the withdrawal of nato forces from eastern europe. russia has mass more than 100000 troops on its border with ukraine, fueling fears of a potential invasion. for these soldiers, the threat of war is a familiar one. the ukraine, an army has been fighting rush. i'm back separatists in the countries east for more than 7 years now, but their story in the face of the late as escalation with another, but you should not be panic, want them if you do, while
4:03 pm
a wounded person is crying and swearing, it would be a fiasco a few panic to go i so we need to stay calm. play them all other calls on his voice via in the streets of the capital key of some residence. struggle to keep their spirits up is for joyce, i am hoping for a peaceful solution. i can't even talk about this without trying. i am for peaceful negotiations award. on thursday, russia offered a glimmer of hope that com could still prevail after the kremlin kept opened the door for talks. despite the u. s. and nato rejecting its demands, shook aside celia the clue as for the content of the document, there is a response which gives hope for the start of a serious conversation on secondary questions, boosted pm. but in this document was, will there was no positive response to the main question of soup was it's usually new. another chance for diplomacy will come next month when russian french
4:04 pm
ukrainian and german delegates will need 4 talks in berlin. want to reach out now to our correspondence in moscow. emily sherwin, emily, um we just obviously heard there the russian foreign minister, a minister, sergei, loud roff in the report saying, and i want to pick up on that last sent as hope for the start of a serious conversation on secondary questions. walk with those b while so russia has made it very clear that they have this main demand, which is that they want nato eastern expansion to stop. the west has repeatedly made it clear, including in that written response yesterday that that is a non starter. but over these past few weeks of talks, there have been some glimpses, i think, of things that could potentially interest russia, even though they made it very clear today. they're disappointed that their main demand on eastern expansion is not being met once again. and some of those things,
4:05 pm
i think, from the nato point of view, for example, we heard that yesterday for me in dolton berg could be more arms control deals. they could be more transparency on military exercises. and i think russia would also be interested in arms control deals on a bilateral lateral level with the u. s. after all the i n f treaty on nuclear, intermediate nuclear weapons has it has fallen apart. the us left that under trump, the open skies treaty, which regulate regulates over flies between russia and the u. s. has also kind of dissipated as well. so i think even though the russians, i didn't get its demands, it seems that their strategy of bargaining very high and essentially asking for more than they know that they can get has paid off. and they've picked up some useful, some useful offers on the way it seems that they're going to be considering now. so
4:06 pm
emily, with this tiny opening that is emerging, does this make a russian incursion, more or less likely? while the russian side, i think, will most likely continue to demand, to hold on to that main demand of no more nato eastern expansion. i think at this point, you know, it's really up to the russian president and today both said love off the russian foreign minister. and also the prevalent spokesman made it clear that the president would be looking at these that risk. this written response that came from nato and from the us yesterday. but for example, the kremlin spokesperson did not exclude that there could be more talks between us and russian foreign minister as he also didn't exclude the possibility of more talk potentially on a presidential level. so, between biden and puts in, going forward, and there are these talks in the normandy format on peace in ukraine. you know,
4:07 pm
from the russian point of view, they've always insisted they don't want to invade russia. i mean, rather ukraine, despite those troops on the border, but they're very much leaving the military threat on the table now as well with upcoming military exercises between russia and bela bruce in the next few weeks as well. and we sure when reporting from moscow, russia, emily, thank you. let's tell you now, but the other stories were keeping an eye on. there's been an oil leak at a refinery near peruse capital lima authority say it happened during work on an underwater pipeline at the la la refinery, owned by the spanish energy giant reps. all workers are still trying to clean up a major oil spill, which took place just 10 days ago working of fossils. military junta has met with members of the ousted government. the foreign ministers have been ordered not to leave the country without permission. the army seized power on monday and detained
4:08 pm
booking of foss. those democratically elected leader, the crew has been condemned. internationally, badly needed international aid has been delivered to the pacific island nation of tonga, vessels from australia, britain and china have now arrived, bringing water and basic medical and sanitation supplies. the island kingdom was devastated by an underwater volcanic eruption as soon army. 2 weeks ago. it destroyed villages and knocked out communications. here in germany, the archbishop of munich has been responding to a damning report released last week. but how the archdiocese handled sexual abuse cases in the catholic church between 19452019 cardinal reinhardt martin said he was ready to take moral responsibility for the church. his failings during his time but said he won't be stepping down on last week's independently,
4:09 pm
your report was heavily critical of former co benedict, the 60 who himself had at the archdiocese from 1977 to 1982. it faltered his handling of several cases of sex abuse. or the report is the 1st formal accusation that benedict did not stop abuse of priests, but instead allowed them to continue working with children. here's a look at what we know so far. excellent, coach of old hon level j paul bob had he knew about the abuse and he didn't stop it. a new independent report has found former pope benedict failed to act in full cases of child sexual abuse by catholic clergyman. the case is date back to the time before he became pope, then known as joseph rat, singer in the late 19 seventy's and early 19 eighties. he was the archbishop of
4:10 pm
munich, and pricing and southern germany. the reports found that under his watch, abusive priests were allowed to continue their work in the church, while victims received no support. the allegations could shots in the form of pope's legacy at all. ma'am, he mentioned in dodge le people in germany, no longer trust jasa fry's thing, or the former poet. you see the catholic church in germany is in a serious crisis, and many people are leaving the church that many are doubting their bishop life. and i'm you many are calling for more action to finally be taken. just perhaps also that the state should push forward with investigating the abuses and compensating the victims from his boss up for farm pipe. rack thing a has already admitted. he made a false statement during the investigation. it found evidence. he was at a meeting where an abusive priest was discussed after he had repeatedly claimed he didn't attend. he now says that with an oversight he's previously denied any wrong doing. and as yet to give a full response to the findings. but the reports,
4:11 pm
commissioned by the catholic church and munich, found abuse was wide spread and suggested a culture of cover ups. it found at least 495 cases of abuse in the archdiocese of munich between 194520. 19. the real figure is thought to be far higher. you spun the fog. it is the interesting question is whether that singer could also face legal action. no one knows whether the diplomatic immunity he had as a pope would still protect him as someone who has resigned his pope and now lives in the vatican as a private individual, even as only body can leaped to you with dish. is it a few months time, theoretically, we could expect to see lawyers and germany following a lawsuit or pursuing legal action against yoseph lat. singer. he who at the time in munich did not tackle cases of abuse, but covered them up. he self connect had, though not for touched at the former pope is now 94 years old, and he's facing mounting pressure over his mishandling of sexual abuse within the
4:12 pm
catholic church. a scandal that reaches far beyond germany. and we can speak now where german jesuit priest, her father hans zoellner. he is a psychologist and leading advisor to the vatican on sexual abuse among the clergy . thank you for joining us. to put it simply a cardinal, who went on to become pope, is accused of protecting alleged pete of file priest through inaction. it really doesn't get much, much more serious than this. yes, that is true. so what's your response to that? it has to be verified. the allegations have to be substantiated, and then there have to be some consequence. but it's an undeniable fact that the church is still dealing with these problems. can you explain why does sex abuse continue to be an issue within the catholic church?
4:13 pm
now that is an issue today, but the things that we have heard and listen to just now have happened over the last 35 years. so it is true that these reports show that we in the catholic church have a serious problem with this. however, i believe those reports are step forward because finally we can talk about it. we know the numbers we know for the 1st time. also the names of those who have covered up. so paradoxically, this is a step forward which gives us the possibility. and i hope also the impetus to really do what all of us know and what has happened on the last years and decades. that is especially invest into safeguarding what to do here at our institute of anthropology at gordon university for people for the
4:14 pm
safeguarding offices, diocese and our world, through our residential programs and our blended learning program. and secondly, to do whatever can be done so that with teams are listened to are accompanied and have a say in what they expect the church to do to better serve the situation and to receive that justice that you went to speaking can be reached in this world, well, what consequences are there for pre sent? and people who are, according to victims have abused these people because i mean, obviously the, all the investigations have up to now been in turn off. what consequences should these people face? these investigations has not been only internal. this is not true. of course cases have been reported to our state attorneys. we have had a lot of those reports in the states in australia and in germany were abuses
4:15 pm
were reported to law enforcement. and it has to be made clear by the church that the civil action or the penal courts are responsible for dealing with these delegates with these crimes alongside with that not substituted, but alongside with he has to go on a procedure which can end normally ends in the case of a proven perpetrator with the dismissal from the priesthood. when i have to leave it, there are german jasmine priest, her father, hans says owner a psychologist and leading advisor to the vatican on sexual abuse among the clergy . thank you. thank you. the german parliament has marked holocaust remembrance day with a special ceremony including tributes to victims and witness testimony. remembrance day marks the day more than 75 years ago and soviet troops liberated the our switch,

4:17 pm
in many countries of the world including germany. this disease has to be eradicated, these like as swiftly as possible. the workmen get hired a cool echoed by the president of germany's parliament who said january 27th is not only a day of remembrance. hortense, this leading off today is also a day of shame for what previous generations of germans have done. shame that the perpetrators never showed far too few had to answer to the courts which forget far too many got off with punishments that amounted to a mockery of the victims and a phone number of fact, laska also in attendance was israel's parliamentary speaker, mickey levy who recalled how democracy can descend into tyranny. so it is here, a new look within the walls at this building a little beam which stand

4:19 pm
us was the smog and the smell. there was a terrible smell. and then you through that smoke, you saw people and then people by their really skeletons and, and they're shuffling along like zombies. and thou shuffle along and dos collapse and die. marla trib itch is back at the place which nearly killed her. bergen belsen, a nazi concentration camp which killed tens of thousands of others. the 91 year old is here to tell her story. with ever fewer living survivors, it feels increasing the agent to pass it on. when she arrived at bergen belsen, marlo was just 14. she had already spent years in a ghetto, in hiding and as
4:20 pm
a slave laborer. she was polish, and jewish, and every one in her family was either dead or missing. a part from her cousin ann who was 7. the girls arrived together. they were so over crowded. they had no room for us. and of them a dead bodies all over the place and the piles of bodies and piles of naked twisted, decaying corpses. it was a horrific sight when british forces liberated bergen belsen. on the 15th of april. 1945. they found tens of thousands of unmarried bodies and $60000.00 prisoners on the brink of death. whether moments that you, you didn't think that you would survive off. so look clear, it didn't think anybody would survive. people were just dying at such
4:21 pm
a rate. and it was obvious, even if helped it didn't come when it did. i mean the whole camp would have just died down pals to mentally after the war mana and her cousin ann was sent with other children to sweden. and then a letter arrived from mother's brother ben. he had survived a different camp and made it to the u. k. she soon went to join him for many years . marla tripage didn't talk about her childhood experiences, but now she feels she has a duty to speak about the past. while she still can the u. s. federal reserve will likely begin raising interest rates in march. it's a departure from pandemic era policies that have been in place since march 2020, taking the benchmark rates to 0. fed chairman jerome powell says the move is
4:22 pm
designed to temper economic growth. americans have seen decades high inflation rates, lately, eating into wage gains and household budgets. the chairman added that he thinks there is quite a bit of room to raise rates without threatening the labor market. good afternoon. well, i would say ok, let's find out what this all means. chelsea delaney frontier. your business is here with us. so to have you with chelsea, why is this decision so important? it's absolutely, absolutely crucial, not just for the us, but for the global economy. it's really the main question that every investor, every economist has been asking, going into this year, what is the fed going to do? what we've seen is that they are going to act aggressively to rain and this inflation problem. and that is going to put pressure on the u. s. economy, because the u. s. commie is the biggest economy in the world, that's going to have a lot of impacts on the economies around the world as well. you have to think of what interest rates really do when investors are thinking about where they want to invest money. they look at interest rates, how much money you earn from, you know,
4:23 pm
buying and other countries. bond bonds, the u. s. is basically just put a big flashing financing invest here. and we've seen in the past when the fed starts hiking interest rates, a lot of money starts to leave other countries. so people start selling their assets, their investments in europe, but also in a lot of emerging markets. so very vulnerable countries like turkey, russia, that have a lot of dependence on these investments, they'll start actually losing money. and that could be a big problem for a lot of countries. so how big a shift is this? really? it's a, it's definitely a big ship. the past 2 years, interest rates in the u. s. have been at rock bottom. that means that a lot of people basically have gotten really good deals on houses on, you know, buying boats, buying cars. that's going to change, that likely will bring down economic activity in the u. s. as well. a lot of companies have been able to just borrow and borrow and borrow for very low rates. that's going to change as well. but the inflation problem in the us is, is really severe right now. and we're seeing that impact people's lives. they're having, you know, trouble making ends meet as well. it's starting to have
4:24 pm
a political impact for the bite administration. so even though there is a trade off that is likely will slow economic growth, the could slow drop go growth. both the fed and politicians in the us see this as really imperative and in a few words. chelsea, what does this mean for europe? all europe is going to be lagging behind. that economic situation is weaker here. but we've already seen this. what i spoke about earlier money is starting to leave europe to go to the us. the german government bond actually went into positive territory for the 1st time in years, which was a really big deal. so it's definitely going to put pressure on european markets in the european economy. chelsea delaney, i did have your business. thank you so much for explaining it all to us. thank you . thousands are dead after tropical storm and are wreaked havoc across south eastern africa. mozambique and madagascar have reported widespread flooding and damage. and in malawi, torrential rains have destroyed crops, cut off towns, and left tens of thousands of people homeless people are assessing the damage
