3:09 pm
a positive shift from the rhetoric we've been hearing from both sides lately and it seems that improve relations between the two countries seems even more promising considering the new russian ambassador was actually a key member of the team that worked on the two thousand and ten new start bilateral nuclear arms reduction agreement like of dialogue the possibility of further escalation of tension would benefit neither russia nor america that's according to political analyst charles will tell. it's really difficult for me to understand why our either side is going down this path i mean you know we could quibble and say you know in terms of our population we have a larger population then you could come back and say well we have larger territory and whatever but i mean this is really you know i have two children and a case that occasionally when they would fight over small problems in the north great opportunities you know i would try to teach them a lesson or two i'm not saying i try to regard the united states and russia as children but you know with all the problems we face around the world in particular
3:10 pm
our joint problem with radical islamic terrorism. an economy that seems to be still that finding its full potential like you go on and on and on with all those problems with with so many shared interests i fail to see the wisdom of going down this path. you know he's foreign minister gambrell has moved to the top of the latest approval ratings in the country edging ahead of england merkel and that's despite the fact he expressed his reluctance to become chancellor there after germany goes to the polls in two weeks' time here's a look at the country's current favorite.
3:11 pm
i was close to being arrested in the wrong china turkey and saudi arabia because i visited those countries i like to think i'd be able to refrain from triggering any foreign policy crises of my words. after becoming the country's foreign minister gabrial stepped down as leader of the social democrats although he still remains a member of the polities the closest rival to the ruling democrats headed by chancellor merkel in an exclusive interview told us his views on the upcoming elections and on sanctions targeting russia. disfigure voice of i was very happy when two days ago the russian president vladimir putin or publicly
3:12 pm
announced plans to request a u.n. mission of course the conditions proposed by russia are not the same as the ones we all ukrainians proposed but i consider it a good first step and what we need to do now is negotiate with the goal of the stablish in a cease fire and pulling back heavy weaponry and now we have an opportunity to do that and if we manage to implement its the troops at least the political process of reconstructing done bass may start then we can start lifting sanctions against russia and i was criticized yesterday for my position on ukraine but i still believe it's correct. by i want people to vote in germany's interests and in their own interests we want this country to prosper and that's possible only with a new united europe that those who are turning against europe will weaken our country in the long run but that. wasn't always had i think russia is just as concerned about islamist terrorism as we are and russia like us is concerned about
3:13 pm
the proliferation of nuclear weapons if north korea continues down this path and other small countries follow we will want the same thing as russia arms control nucular disarmament and measures to ensure peace establish trust and defeat islamist terrorism our countries have plenty of shared interests. saudi arabia has suspended all dialogue with cattle explain why after the break. but now china has taken the bold step here the twenty first century and after they've built our economy on the backs of all american jobs all the american jobs were to china and they created a middle class out of church members like other years ago fifty years ago thirty years ago before the world trade organization they were accepted into the average you know chinese person was surviving on dirt like they were nation eighty but now they're all for the middle class but point mining because.
3:14 pm
as long as you run support still the intel international community say to run this is not acceptable you should stop firing on this into perspective baseless ballots hamas. doing the place but this is something that i believe israel should see to good or we draw some goals with the united states and with other states and say ok it's not just you know a small easily problem. russia's foreign ministry has strongly condemned the demolition in poland of a memorial to read only soldiers on the move is a clear demonstration of russia rhetoric by the country's wealth origins showing
3:15 pm
disregards to the memory of the war and its heroes the memorial had stood at the site of a mass grave of soviet soldiers who died for poland from fascism. for him or interim russia recently accused poland of russophobia after warsaw barred moscow from an international project to build a memorial at the former suburb or nazi concentration camp the site operated for a year during the war the around a quarter of a million jews from poland france and the soviet union murdered their account was closed after a large uprising led by a soviet officer and about six hundred prisoners attempted to escape only
3:16 pm
a few dozen lived to tell the tale meanwhile the british foreign minister has recently demanded from germany war damages of a trillion dollars and warsaw isn't only knocking on birdland door politicians believe that russia should be paying reparations as well the polish deputy minister of justice said russia should be held responsible for what it did to poland referring to the war between the two states dating back to nine hundred twenty one but that's ignoring the fact the existence of poland it is kind of borders was formed as a result of congress' back in nine hundred forty five where the soviet union backed polish interests ellis discussed the issue now with bruno diverse professor at the national institute of languages and eastern civilized nations. ok bruno are you surprised that the level of anti russia rhetoric that seems to be
3:17 pm
coming from poland at the moment. you know i'm not surprised because it well already prepared for last twenty or thirty years and especially far from the law of government and. it's just they are doing the same thing they were already doing just that they have to find new new new arguments every dime so. discourse is tough more and more talk but basically it's always the same they need and meet. in poland and german nationalism and ukrainian nationalism is very unpopular so i mean they push against russia because they cannot. criticize ukraine or germany and that's the real point what's going on here with the demolition of this memorial was the rings
3:18 pm
thing behind it you know it's just it's not the first one. after in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine date destroyed quite a lot of monuments especially to monuments of general coney if you would surely berate the town so it's not very new but of course. some monuments were left and now would i can say they've finished the job. but it's pure democrates if you ask people here on the street in poland when they think about dart they think it's pure event alice but you know. way media polish media and government is working. what about the history as i understand it they shows that the soviet union it was a free poland for nazi occupation is this being forgotten. you know it's not forgotten if you ask people about that on the street as i told you
3:19 pm
they know that soviet army to liberate to poland. all do propaganda is consent rating you know do it so-called ribbentrop lot of fact they just don't don't take into account the interest of the soviet union at the time and they don't remember you know they don't talk about dural of the soviet army and the liberation of ball and noticed of the time doing mainstream media in poland are just saying that. ball and change occupation from the german occupation to do soviet occupation which is of course of course completely absurd because during the german now of the occupation both were systematically. exterminated which was of course the case during after the soviet army prayed to fall and so every poles no doubt but the problem is with new generations because the new generations
3:20 pm
were brought up in schools where they teach history the way i told you about what do you make of calls coming from. polish politicians who say that war damages should be paid by pressure on germany. pure democracy because of course it's only realistic but. a concern in germany poland of the surely reason resigned of any. you know reconstruction any any any depths in one thousand nine hundred forty four so to this job to is closed concerning soviet union. the soviet union gave actually to poland one third of its actual territory so.
3:21 pm
