1:08 am
for the kids of war and but particularly over to the kids of war, a lot of women actually lost the bit winners of the family. and they have been the big winner of the family now that they are stopped from accessing office is going to work. or even they are not allowed to get out of their homes and travel up to a certain distance with the main company. and if the without the main company, if they have to travel in public taxes or buses, they need to be asked for a mail company or madam. and if they don't have a company in the taxi driver cannot, basically the taxi drivers have become like, you know, a moral police for woman or which is so wrong. because how can you actually ask a police, a taxi driver who is not even educated to be the, the board of police for women. so women and minorities are the most, i receive hundreds of calls per day from the local communities asking for basic food. and i think yes,
1:09 am
humanitarian crisis is there. we need to really ensure that women are in the mainstream distribution of the 8, not only as recipients, but not as decision making as people who are higher. i don't want to put as international community to make gender inclusion as a condition, but we need to really seriously negotiate the international community. must negotiate to ensure that women are part of the, in a distribution of 8 in the decision making, as staffers as managers, as people who are actually by international community. they need to really showcase that women can do. and women must be included. a german foreign minister says she'll do everything and have power to guarantee you crane security. and alina burbock made the comments during a meeting with ukrainian officials in kiev, and trying to revive full way peace, silks of russia and france to end the conflict in the east. and don, boss, region assure has been massing troops at a border with ukraine. arising fears of an invasion,
1:10 am
jannen foreign minister will meet her russian counterpart in moscow on tuesday. dominic came brings us more now from berlin. the thing that really stood out from this meeting, at least the news conference it emerged after the meeting of the 2 foreign ministers was a reiteration of germany's perspective, germany's support for ukraine and alina bell, bach saying effectively to the russians that any further, each further aggression would be met with some diplomatic response from her country and others saying in her opinion that diplomacy is the only way to solve this crisis. also referring to the normandy format, saying that the full way meeting of ministers between paris here, moscow, berlin, that that's a format that they want to reinvigorate where possible. but it is worth making the point that in questions both to mrs. burbock and to her counterparts. me total, clear, but when the question was about whether the german government would seek to provide
1:11 am
some form of material support in the form of weapons, perhaps. and alina beveled did not touch on much choosing not to answer the question directly, which of course is interesting in itself, because they're all those who say that if germany wants materially to support ukraine and perhaps weapons would be a way of doing it. but as a say that was not touched upon, at least not by the german foreign minister, the global vaccine sharing program kovacs has reached its target of shipping a 1000000000 doses to a 144 countries. it started in february, but global vaccine inequity remains high with only 5 percent of people and poor poor nations fully inoculated, and more than 40 percent of the world's population has not yet received a fuss dose. while in brazil, children aged at 5 to 11 years old on our seething vaccines, even after delay. creative by the president, monica dana key. f has more. after months of political
