2:02 pm
the meeting followed a 10 stand off over ukraine and that some fear could lead to war in europe. that countries have agreed to keep pursuing a diplomatic path to work on their differences. but both men of played down hope of finding a resolution. let's listen to what the leverage had to say just after the talks. no room scheduled, as i told you, it's not the end of our talks next week. we will, as anybody can highlight several times, receive the written response, which will be smooth. let's go right to geneva now are brussels bureau chief alexander phenomena has been following this meeting for us to day highlight. hi, alexandra. a we saw there that does a good lover of held a press conference, followed by antony blinkin. what did you take away from what was said? well, maybe 1st explain where we are standing right now. we are still at the hotel. we're a russian foreign minister lover of held his press conference that i attended and he described his talks with the secretary of lincoln as
2:03 pm
a fruitful and meaningful conversation. he also said that he was hoping that the level of emotion will now go down. so he seemed to be no to dis, satisfied with the talks to day. however, he once again insisted dad to russia is waiting for a written response to its demands. and that they're expecting to you as to give them such a written response next week. because as it seems, there are not breaking down on what they are expecting from the us and nato. you hinted at the fact that the circle of our did seem pretty satisfied if you will, with the talks today. what about antony blank and is he on the same page? well, i think that he is still talking to the press during his press conference. so we have to wait a bit to understand his assessment of the meeting today. however, at the beginning of his press conference, he both that was my impression, at least a bit more cautious. and he described the talks also as,
2:04 pm
as at frank and substantive. however, he also said that what he told his counterpart, his russian counterpart was a clear message, if you will, the message that any aggression against a crane will have massive consequences and that it is up to russia to show that they want to continue this path of diplomacy and they are ready to de escalate and alexander if you look at what we saw today in geneva, and really of the last 2 weeks of this diplomatic activity. as anything we've seen, really changed the position of the un and nato allies. have they been reassured, perhaps at all by anything that they've heard? well, it's really difficult to answer. and my impression was that there was nothing really, really new that we heard from the russian foreign minister. because even though he
2:05 pm
said that he was satisfied with the talks, he also reiterated that only after receiving the written response from nato and the u. s. the kremlin will decide what it's going to happen next. whether there would like to continue at a consultation to continue to negotiations with the west, and he didn't seem to make any confessions. he said the russia, and it's not thinking about changing its position on nato, on ukraine. instead, he accused the west of being hysterical of you know, not telling the truth about russian rushes intention. he also said that it's not russia that it's planning any kind of invasion or aggression, but it's a maybe ukraine or the west. so i don't really see anything that could help nato and to the u. s. understand better, what putin,
2:06 pm
sir. really 10 intentions are and whether we can find or they can find a diplomatic solution to the crisis. alexander phenomena reporting from geneva. thank you very much. now to some other headlines from around the world, several people have been killed in airstrikes in yemen, targeting the contested city of her data. they have also reportedly caused a nationwide internet blackout. according to an advocacy group, the saudi led coalition supporting yelman's government destroyed a telecommunications hub and nearby buildings, leaving chaotic seems at a local hospital and numerous casualties. mexicans in the border city of c, that's what us are demanding justice for a murdered lesbian, couple activists. march to the attorney general's office seeking harsh punishment for the perpetrators on sunday police found the dismembered remains of the 2 women

2:08 pm
a drastic but necessary step. probably compulsory vaccination isn't something we wanted. but unfortunately, it's become a necessity to close the big vaccination gap in austria. it's my deep conviction that only then will we have a really stick chance, a regaining the life we had before. the corona virus. oh. from early february, everyone over the age of 18 must be vaccinated. with exceptions for those who are pregnant, have a medical exemption, or have recently recovered from coven 19. after an introductory phase, anyone still holding out could be find thousands of euro's thousands have joined regular street protests against restrictions and vaccination . a few 100 protesters gathered outside parliament in vienna as votes were cost.
2:09 pm

2:11 pm
of hospitalizations has been rising for weeks, the high death rates seen an earlier waves has been absent. that's why spain government has now taken a radical step. there will no longer be mass testing or strict quarantine rules in the future. instead, the infection rate will only be estimated if flu instead of a deadly pandemic. this is how prime and is the sanchez wants to treat the corona virus in the future. and he sees himself as a pioneer in europe. but that also critics that say that it's too early for such experiments, they point out that many spanish clinics continue to work at their limits. one of spain's leading experts, isabella sola also are just caution. she conducts research on the corona virus at the national center for biotechnology class leaders by emerson gun. but we must stay prepared for surprises. the virus development is simply unpredictable, of course at one's to keep spreading, that may result in
2:12 pm
a weakening of symptoms that it causes. but the opposite can also happen. painful kiana's, missouri is up on the asset love and added at the moment. it seems as if it's the people in spain who want to surprise the corona virus with their new attitude. after 2 years of pandemic, they seem to no longer one to believe that the virus can still be dangerous. you're watching d. w still to come on our shell 19 year olds. our brother ferg becomes the youngest female pilot to fly solo around the world will hear about the highs and lows of her record breaking flight the 1st to a damning new report on the child sex abuse scandal rocking the catholic church in alleges former po benedict failed to take action to stop for priests accused of child sex abuse in germany in the 1980s. their report concluded that he covered up the abuse when he was the archbishop of munich turning

2:14 pm
perception of the church. and these of either benedict who stood down from his rolling 2013 has denied the claims. but the lawyers investigating were categorical . he was aware in exquisite, in a total of 4 cases, we concluded that the then archbishop cardinal ruts singer is to be accused of misconduct in cases of sexual abuse. and those who represent victims said, the catholic church must do more. we believe um they are, they have become better in training of lay people and i put a protection programs for children. but, but in terms of on dealing with the victims and not protecting of the perpetrators, it's still the same old system. benedict proffered his resignation as pope ameritas

which made abortion legal in $9073.00 west of washington dc. the conservative state of kentucky once had over a dozen abortion clinics. now louisville, with only 2 clinics, is the last place in the entire state where women can get necessary treatment. the kentucky health justice network, make sure as many women as possible can reach the clinics. the organization is run by donations and grants. mike stern has dedicated more than 20 years to this issue . what i fear as restrictions on abortion access continue, is the impact that will be had on the communities that already face barriers because of poverty, racism, lack of access to all health care. as we move into these further restricted times, one of the hurdles make helps women in kentucky overcome is
2:17 pm
a sheer distance. they must travel to get an abortion. that's why make deliveries $25.00 gas carts to the women at the clinic. even if the medical practice became illegal in kentucky, she's determined to continue her work. but what they cannot do as restrict to my speech. which means i can say to any kentuckian, you can still get an abortion. here's how organizations exist to support you. i will give you money and a plane ticket and a hotel stay. if getting an abortion is what you want. if 2022 is the year when abortion becomes legal in kentucky, this clinic might not exist much longer. but it's clear, there will still be people like meg, try to keep abortion axis as safe as possible. of to some more headlines. now, u. s. prosecutors have charged for bella lucien government officials with an aircraft piracy for diverting

2:20 pm
in his music on, on stage in, in many films or that that he did a, i mean meatloaf really broke all. busy the rules, he wasn't anyone's idea of what a pop star should look like. um or what a pop star should sound like. his music really defied all the pop music or categories, or it was almost operatic in its scope. and, and, and, and also he made these incredibly long pop songs. his, his is, is music songs with, with stretch 891012 minutes long. i could do, i'd do anything for love was over 12 minutes long and spent 5 weeks on the u. s. a top of the u. s. charts. and he managed to break through despite all this and become one, the most successful pop hours of all time selling upwards of a 100000000 albums worldwide. what do you think? set him apart as a singer and a performer? yeah, i think performance is the key a meatloaf said himself that he had trouble being taken seriously as, as a, as
2:21 pm
a pop star. and that people often saw more as a, as a circus clown. i'm. and i think that it came a bit from it's sort of theatrical background. he started in stage musicals, and he was incredibly theatrical performer. his music was a theatrical and i'm t, as i said, broke all the rules of my favorite song, of his paradise by the dashboard light, probably the best ever song about making out in the back seat of a car i'm and that as again, is, is, is is, has musical range that goes from maybe janis joplin to, to freddy mercury. and he, as i said, broke all the rules and, and that's why his, his fans worldwide really adored the man. and he really is known around the world as a singer. but i understand he actually considered himself to be 1st and foremost an actor is that right? yes, that's right. as i say, start on stage and he started a. he performed a eddie from the roster, pictured her in a stage version before i'm performing the same role. i'm in the film version of
