our correspondent marina strauss in brussels welcome marina so what can the european parliament to do if it decides that russia does need to be punished for aids actions against ukraine especially given the russians already under sanctions by the e.u. and others members of european parliament are preparing a so-called resolutely to impose new sanctions on russia russia this time if russia further escalates the situation at its border with ukraine or even considers an invasion but it's actually not the parliament that this so it's countries and last time their foreign ministers met it's not a long time ago a couple of days ago they decided not to impose new sanctions on russia they only ask russia to further deescalate but there's one thing many people here brussels can't agree on and that's the fact that so rice and so with russia are are at an all time low and many fear it will further escalate. i do wonder sometimes what
5:13 pm
is the point of the european parliament you just said the decision is not there is it belongs to the heads of state. and if they are going to sanction is there any evidence that anything that the you has done to sanction russia has had any effect at all. the role of the european parliament is to put pressure that's one of their roles to put pressure on member states they can decide on sanctions they can say we want sanctions and then your member states have to go forward and put sanctions in place but let's look at russia for example that you and others imposed sanctions on russia after the annexation of crimea couple of years ago and yet russia did not necessarily change its behavior but it had economic repercussions and that mounted the pressure on lady mary putin inside its country his country for example
5:14 pm
why is this the business of the european parliament given that neither russia nor ukraine is about. well the e.u. has the power to impose sanctions on any country around the world to safeguard its values or to for its own security that's what you said this that that's not what i'm saying so it is imposed for example sanctions on myanmar after the military coup there and like security plays a huge show when we're talking about ukraine versus russia because you're crying it's not an e.u. member we know that but it's on the european continent and imagine a war broke out in ukraine again or a conflict it would pose a huge threat on the european union. very distraught set in brussels thank you so much. u.n. secretary general antonio terrace is holding meetings in geneva with the leaders of the divided island of cyprus to try and find common ground between the 2 sides has
