11:04 am
calling her death a vile and cruel crime, or a spoke short while ago to dw correspondent roman, gone to ranko. in kiya, i asked him whether rushes allegations blaming ukrainian woman for beginners, killing were credible well, one should be very careful with any information coming from russia, especially from russian. i secret services and am if we are talking about the speed of the investigation. this is something which is very astonishing. we haven't seen in the recent years, maybe am crimes in russia being investigated just within hours and no evidence presented on russian television. so i'm, it is still very on sided the whole, the whole case seems very strange. i'm from here in cliff. no, russia is accusing. you're crying a country which is at war with and am russia is presenting so possible evidence. ukraine is denying and dragging himself the father of the victim is calling for our
11:05 am
veins calling for victory over ukraine. the next strange thing is how of quick president putting reacted he em and sent his condolences and awarded a metal to the victim saying she was a russian patriot. and the russian propaganda is also, i'm running hyde to call for strikes against give and this is something which also struggle. a looks strange for observers here, it would be very on vice of ukrainian government if ukraine is behind this. to do such an attack on the eve of the ukrainian independence day, which is on august 24th. so or ukraine would know that russia would, could retaliate for that and, and bring many people in danger. and it is very unwise to kill such a person a just a few days before leave you mention it about the possibility of retaliation. how concerned is the government in kia that russia may indeed use his version of events

surrounding to get his death to strike it? ukraine? well, those concerns are growing by the hour. i'm just a few days ago. you're pregnant, president zalinski warned that russia might be up to something bigger than before. ah, we have a report that the government officials are urged to stay home not to walk into government quarter. the public transport the will run only until 21 hours or there will be no celebration electric and, and used to see in the past 31 years on this day, which is very special. so there are grave concerned concerns, and there are also reports in the media that western media than russia that russia might strike the ukrainian capital key of something we haven't seen for many, many weeks. and the government quarter was not under attack since the russian invasion began. so it's very tense, extremely tense situation here, here in key if you can really feel it in the air. roman, thank you very much. shar correspondent rollin gone to ranko there in kia now to
11:07 am
canada, we're a german chancellor. olive schultz is on a visit with the goal of expanding berlin's energy supplies. germany is trying to end its dependence on russian gas as winter approaches. canada currently supplies little of its fossil fuel energy to europe. both countries are looking to expand that partnership though, and in the long run, transition to a more sustainable fuel. he's on a shopping trip, but there's nothing here to buy. at least not yet. chancellor, all love shows is in canada, looking for new energy suppliers, as germany reduces its reliance on russia. we are working hot to become independent of disgust supply, and we are doing a lot of investments to make it happen. and we are doing it as fast as ever possible. never such an infrastructure has been built in germany and that a short time. so canada has lots of natural gas,
11:08 am
but currently few ways to exported to germany or prime minister just intruder early promised to remove regulation to speed up for a future gas exports. so we are in a situation in the short term where we will do what we can to contribute to the global supply of energy by increasing our capacities in the short term and explore ways to see if it makes sense to export l n g. and if there's a business case for it to export l n g directly to europe. so no gas for now, but may be later. another option, the chancellor is chasing. so cold, green hydrogen, canada is renewable power, could be harnessed to create it. the german leaders to it will continue with a visit to a remote town in canada as far northeast, where green hydrogen technology development is underway. earlier i spoke with did
11:09 am
of his chief political correspondent melinda crane. i asked her at the german chancellor went to canada, but essentially failed to secure any new source of gas to get his country through the winter. that's pretty much the bottom line. although prime minister trudeau didn't say a flat out, no, we heard him. they're saying very politely that canada would look into it, but that certainly doesn't solve germany's short term problem. as you've said, the government has been working, especially the environment and economics minister tirelessly to try to find alternative sources to rush and gas. and amongst their efforts is as the chancellor said, now commissioning new infrastructure floating terminals to receive liquefied natural gas on germany's northern coast. but where is that gas to come from? this is now the 3rd in a series of gas diplomacy, visits that included katara,
11:10 am
norway, and now canada. and in all 3 cases, the german government has essentially gotten a rush off. and this is a very crucial problem for germany. not simply the question of how does it keep it? citizens warm in the coming winter, but how does it fuel its industrial power house? many of germany's big industrial companies, companies that account for a lot of this country's exports do rely on natural gas as the source. so this sa gas diplomacy is critical, but certainly the short term problem is not solved yet. ok, guess is one part of this saw berlin and ottawa though are also looking at long term energy projects. later today, transfer sholtes and prime minister trudeau will visit a proposed hydrogen production site in new foundland. what is germany hoping for their melinda? well, many people see this green hydrogen,
11:11 am
which is basically hydrogen produced with renewable energy sources like solar, wind as a possible alternative to gas. but in a longer term here to there are major infrastructural challenges that need to be solved by the way. that of course, was what prime minister trudeau cited in saying that sending gas from canada's west to the east to export it to europe is probably simply too expensive. well, certainly in the case of hydrogen as well, the infrastructure is complicated and expensive. some gas infrastructure could be re purpose to transport hydrogen, but we're looking at a much longer term solution. the so called energy partnership for the future that canada and germany will agree today to today would not even begin to activate until 2025. so again, it's not a short term problem, it may be a very useful, longer term way to de carbonized these countries economies. but again, a chance the schultz has some other big,
11:12 am
short term challenges he needs to solve my new, thank you very much. our chief political correspondent, melinda cray sketch up on a few other stories making headlines around the world today. former us president donald trump has asked a federal judge to temporarily block the f b i from reviewing material it seized from his florida estate. he's asking for a special appointee to oversee the review, the f. b, i search of the mar logo resort was part of an investigation into whether tro illegally took classified documents from the white house. finished prime minister santa marine has tested negative in a drug test, which she took to en. speculation over her private life rein, defended her right to enjoy her free time. after the publication of a video showing her celebrating at a private party, she said her capacity to work had not been impaired. almost an italian coast guard has rescued the crew and passengers of a luxury yacht which sank in the mediterranean off the coast of catanzaro. marina,
11:13 am
the yacht came into difficulty 15 kilometers from the coast. all 9 people on board were saved. it was not immediately known what caused the yards to sink. in the united states, heavy rain and flash flooding have been causing chaos, and parts of the south and south west with hundreds of people forced to evacuate. the state of texas has been particularly hard hit with record breaking rainfall in dallas from a historic drought to flash floods. the united states southwest is seeing a dramatic shift in extreme weather. here in utah, muddy water, inundated straits and shops, while in new mexico national parks were evacuated, texas. so some of the heaviest rain flooding downtown dallas firefighters battled the raging water to rescue trapped residence there. got a hold of them,
11:14 am
they come and rescue me or took with took a lot, have already figure out how to do it. it was the don't go the current so wrong. go on that my whole you, you kill want you way. parts of the u. s. have been in a prolonged drought, but sudden down paused. don't help. the water runs off the hard, dry ground, often making flooding even more severe. climate change is making these extreme weather events more frequent. and the u. s. government response to recent natural disasters has been repeatedly criticized as inadequate. already inundated the southwest, states are bracing for more rain later this wake, scientists at nasa have released new images of the planet jupiter. they're describing the pictures as providing never seen detail of the biggest planet in the solar system. they show jupiter's famous one great red spot shown here at white as
11:15 am
well as faint rings around the planet. the images were originally photographed and infrared, and then colorized. afterwards. they were taken by the james web telescope, which was launched into space last year. you're watching the w news from berlin up next on closer 30 years on from germany's worst post war racial violence. the legacy of the roster right continues to reverberate. thanks we're all set to go beyond the obvious citizenship. a men were all in as we take on the we're all about the stories.
