a disaster it is just not working is not in the movie politicians are going back and forth and want to distinguish themselves with new proposals but the scientists they're doing a much better job. and they have very clear on what many needs right now. is in the movie if we look into our mobility analysis and we see that context has not been reduced as much as during the 1st lockdown and that's where we need to come back to it because we're dealing with a new variant b 117 which is spreading faster the only way to do that is through a coherent systematic intensive and maybe shorter knock down look here at the chancellor's office angle america is calling for a strict and nationwide lockdown but federal states have the decision making. powers in the fight against the pandemic and the states have very different views especially now that the election is in pain a start i mean lash out from north rhine-westphalia and michael sort of and the

various fighting over the cd use candidacy for chancellor is the political management of the crisis going out of hand this is my thought as politicos are good politicians always say we have to make long term decisions but actually they're thinking of the next election that's why they want to avoid uncomfortable inconvenient decisions decisions people don't understand but that's a mistake because in times of crises people want security and they are also prepared to take responsibility but politicians have to leave the weight of what is most informative. straightforward covered measures that is what people are calling all here in germany stricter laws no ensure this the political discussion continues . a little earlier chief political correspondent belinda crane explained why germany's federal government is taking the lead on setting coronavirus restrictions . german law until now has placed responsibility for infectious disease
9:14 pm
control largely in the hands of regional authorities and there's enormous variance in the rate of infection across different regions of germany so some rural regions have rates as low as 3030 cases per 100000 residents others go up to almost 300 cases per 100000 residents so there has been a lot of variation in the way that different regional authorities approach this however they do regularly negotiate with the federal government about what kind of restrictions to put into place and all agreed at the beginning of march on a phased plan that would see uniform restrictions in the event of one particular circumstance namely infection rates over $100.00 cases per 100000 residents however that has not occurred and that's because the fact is that there are places even including the capital here berlin that have infection rates over that number and
9:15 pm
are still trying to sort of sort of do a lockdown light where there might be a light curfew but at the same time more testing and shopping and that is what the federal government now wants to change and interesting lee enough the federal state leaders say they're ready to go along because i think there is recognition that we need more reliability we need binding plans and we need clarity clarity also for citizens to ensure that they comply with the rules that are put into effect so we could see action as early as this weekend and beginning of next week that will change the federal infectious disease laws in order to give the federal government more power and many citizens waves would say this is long overdue. it's that they don't lose their chief political correspondent melinda crane now world leaders are increasingly concerned about a buildup of troops along russia's border with ukraine the u.s.
9:16 pm
germany and france are all calling on moscow to hope the movement of its forces there are fears of an escalation in eastern ukraine donbass region observers say russian backed separatist rebels have repeatedly breached a cease fire the kremlin says the current military buildup is a territorial right. the russian state television offers a different way of looking at things it reports that ukraine and nato pose a threat to russia and not the other way around. the narrative present ukrainian soldiers as the aggressors and shows video footage of moscow's response russian troops engaged in military exercises in crimea. what to the west looks like saber rattling is viewed differently by russia from moscow it's a necessary reinforcement of its defenses against the west for young. the majority of the ukrainian military understand the fatal consequences of any actions that would lead to conflict. i hope they won't be provoked by politicians

9:18 pm
alliance is a red flag for the kremlin. but that doesn't mean that all members of the alliance welcome ukraine's desire to join nato as soon as possible letting right know there are steps towards membership are not on the agenda. a clear statement. that keeps many in russia hope that a war is preventable. the people of donbass are less optimistic though the pro russian separatists insist they don't want war either. if ukraine takes the 1st step nobody knows where it will end the muslim. kremlin is doing all this to blackmail ukraine and the west. troops reinforced if this collation continues even a small provocation will be enough to set things off with unpredictable consequences. russia's defense ministry says this footage shows recent
