1:05 am
but germany is saying russian gas is needed to draw vision away from coal, a nuclear power, dominant cane as well from berlin. now, what the regulators are thinking? then few has been very simply that they don't believe that the organisation behind that old stream pipeline called mold stream to a g, which is based in switzerland. they don't believe that it has enshrined german law into its operations, at least based here in germany. quite technical ruling, but the basic deal being that the company needs to fully set itself up in germany and accept german jurisdiction as it were before any green lighting can be given in terms of the effect this ruling will have. well, it's a temporary stay in one perspective. we know that the company concerned nordstrom to a g in switzerland has gotten till a point in january. sure. reply. but obviously there is the geopolitical significance in this, this pipeline. really polarizes opinion,
1:06 am
not just in ukraine or germany, but around europe. there are some in germany who say, this is a good idea that this is helpful to the german economy. that gas coming through will offer a new opportunities for gas consumers around western europe. there are also many people, politically, again, not just in germany noticed in ukraine when the british prime minister, the american president presently united states jo bud vall expressed real concerns about an old stream to there are some people who say that they believe that the russian government has been deliberately trying to force the german government into green ly, sing nordstrom, to quicker. well, this ruling would appear not to be take paying any heed to that with tension between russia in the west also play out in space with moscow rejecting us and natal accusations that have recklessly, by blowing not one of its own satellites. and they just have to general yet install

1:08 am
destroying space capability, creating a lot of dangerous debris. not this concerning both because the debris actually poses a risk to civilian activity in the space, but is also of concern because it demonstrate address is not developing new weapon systems that can shoot down the satellites. i spoke to natalie zach, the publisher of the russian space web dot com, who told me how the russian weapon works. this because of the you. so i'm, it was, it doesn't the great. instantly it was one piece and it became one instance of became right now there are 1400 profitable pieces and there are probably a 100, so some more which are simply far away to be seen by
