negotiations award. on thursday, russia offered a glimmer of hope that com could still prevail after the kremlin kept opened the door for talks. despite the u. s. in nato rejecting its demands. suca said, suzanne, you the good news? as for the content of the document, there is a response which gives hope for the start of a serious conversation on secondary questions. posted beauman. but in his documentary, well, there was no positive response to the main question answer was, it's usually new. another chance for diplomacy will come next month when russian french ukrainian and german delegates will need 4 talks in berlin. let's get some more perspective on the story. now we can speak to fyodor luciano, he's the editor in chief of the journal, russia in global affairs, and he is joining us from moscow. good evening to you. i want to start with getting your take on what we're seeing at the moment, because depending on who you ask vladimir putin as either on the verge of launching
9:04 pm
a full scale invasion of ukraine or he is saber rattling, to get some attention, respect to certain issues or something in between. so what did you see is happening at the moment i say quite severe, political and diplomatic crisis, which has to do with the russian a deeper satisfaction with the security situation in europe at large as it emerged after the cold war. and then continued and developed in the case after it has actually not so much to do with you for it in particular and looking for moscow, it's a little bit strange how much the west western commentators are obsessed with the union issue. because the ukraine is an element of this is a case vital case, but it's not about ukraine at all. it's about the general principle where the need to has right to expand indefinitely or not as for troops. yes, i think this is,
9:05 pm
as you said, a way to that the say bring americans to negotiation, the negotiating table to be fair. mister leanne, if you say you don't understand why the west is perhaps obsessed with ukraine, there are more than 100000 russian troops massed up the ukrainian border with have you already had arms as well and military artillery. so wouldn't that represent a threat to ukraine? it wouldn't represent a threat, probably. and of course, when you try to address such a big issue as to change to revise the european security order, you need to look very, very credible. but of course, in case russia would really want to launch a war against ukraine. i'm not the military expert, but they give that it would look differently. and probably not as demonstrative as
9:06 pm
it is. the operation would look like maybe syrian one or so, and this is something else. it's not about the asian miss lookout if i want to ask you about this european security order that you're referencing here, because we're talking about the fate and the futures of sovereign countries. including ukraine and other countries that were formerly part of a soviet union. so how was it possible to restructure this order without their consent? it's impossible to restructure without their consent. the question is to explain to all of us to the western us 2 countries, so called countries in between the former countries that so it means that you understand the reality. julie and the decision about security arrangements, which of course, each country has right to me make independently and on the sovereign basis will
9:07 pm
have a certain consequences if powerful neighbors are not fine with certain consequences. what do you mean by that? in football, full neighbor is field threatened by decision made by other countries, of course, jewelry and what? but mr. we kind of, why would russia feel threatened here? i think this is a bar. it's not, again, it's not the bar to clean only because nature, whatever we say or whatever i need. the officials are saying, nate is a military alliance, which more than doubled in the 30 years, which started to fight worse by the way, which was not the case during the cold war. and it's approaching crush and borders . my, you might say russia is paranoid,
9:08 pm
but if you just look at this object of situation, i think any military in the world would feel a little bit concerned. well, i should just point out that nato does like to emphasize the fact that it considers the self defensive military alliance, but we have run other time for the interview. and i want to thank you very much, mr. luciano, editor in chief of the journal, russia in global affairs. thanks so much for sharing your views with us today. on d. w. let's get you up to speed on some other stories. now. the liberal u. s. supreme court justice steven briar has formerly announced his retirement president, joe biden repeated, has promised to nominate the 1st black woman to the court, to name stopping the list of potential nominees. r u. s. court of appeals judge contain g. brown's. jackson and california supreme court justice leandra krueger. the use drug regulator has approve the use of pfizer is oral antiviral pill to treat coven 19. the european medical agency gave the green light to the drug packs

9:10 pm
inland. a call to action has residents lining up to donate their locks. it turns out hair of all kinds is an excellent oil absorber. a method discovered by a hair stylist in the 1990 s. the strands are collected and stuffed into sausage like buoy off the coast. the spills have contaminated more than 20 beaches in peru, and people are willing to sacrifice more than vanity for the greater good. is there thing own and that i have a small breed that belongs to my sister who died 2 years ago from leukemia. the original idea was to donate it to an organization that makes wiggs for people with cancer, but i forgot to take the breed. and so i said,
9:11 pm
well, there will be another opportunity some time. and i thought that this is a great opportunity for others. the chop is a small price to pay w. okay, so it got hair grows in abundance and fast. if animals die, it's also an economic loss. they are living creatures, hair grows back, i don't care much about it. i care more that i can help a cause of what the less, gay, good, well you, that out oil spills are not uncommon in peru more than 1000 have been recorded in the past 25 years. environmentalists accused the government of prioritizing foreign investment over the environment. steal authorities are adamant that the company will be held accountable and may even be forced to shut down. but ecologists fear the damage is done. it took reps out 2 days to react to the 1st oil spill now
9:12 pm
peruse, worst ecological disaster in recent history. for an update on the story, we can speak to journalists, simeon tangle in that lima. good evening to you. can you tell us how the clean up is going please? yes, it's going slowly on. it's very painstaking. there are a lot of people now picking up contaminated every rock sand from the beaches, working with a oil from the surface of the sea. also connecting injured animal, see balls marine mammals, that kind of thing. but it's going very slowly, and it's going to take at least leads probably months on the latest is that we now know that a single rigorous jury about 50 miles north of lima, 50 miles north of where the spill happened. apparently,
9:13 pm
it must have been to the low ed when the, when the oil, right, because it is now going up part of this estuary, into fresh water and the local municipality. now, as people trying to clean it up as best they can, public prosecutors, they have open investigations against managers of the spanish energy giant rep. so what do we know about the accusations and the investigation? well, on the face of it, it looks as though read soul has responded to this has maybe been negligent in allowing to still happen in the 1st place and then has responded in a completely inadequate way. it should have had a contingency plan by law in peru, if you did. the contingency plan has been inadequate and has been activated at least 48 hours to light, allowing the soil to escape and then just move out the pacific coast here in and through out right from the very beginning reps all has appeared to deny the obvious
9:14 pm
truth initially they were claiming that this was less than one power boiled in lead. and that grew and now grew admitting at $6000.00 barrels of oil. but they're not actually showing the the logs. apparently the captain of the tank of was discharging the unloading the oil refineries. and italian boats captain is now fully used in writing reps, all of not telling him not giving him the recalls of how much it had to take them from the boat. so there's the real possibility, the reps or even misled about the fact that it's $6000.00 barrels. maybe it's more and prostitute is now looking at potential criminal liability for wrestle employees and executives. ok, and the latest is today. they have also a court to prevent correctional executives from leaving the country. we'll have to
9:15 pm
leave it there in general, simeon take speaking to us from lima. thank you. thank you. sharon, germany, the archbishop of munich, has been responding to a damning report release last week about how the archdiocese handled sexual abuse cases in the catholic church. cardinal hind hut mach said he was ready to take moral responsibility for the church's failings during this time. but he said he won't be stepping down with us. last week's, independent report was heavily critical of former pope benedict, the 16th, who himself headed, the archdiocese from 977 to 1982. the report is the 1st formal accusation that benedict did not stop of use of priests, but instead allowed them to continue working with children, their coma rocher mode or level level ethical bob it, he knew about the abuse and he didn't stop it. a new independent report has found form of pope benedict failed to act in full cases of child sexual abuse by catholic
9:16 pm
clergyman. the case is date back to the time before he became pope, then known as joseph rod, singer in the late 19 seventies and early 19 eighties. he was the archbishop of munich and pricing in southern germany. the reports found that under his watch, abusive priests were allowed to continue their work in the church, while victims received no support. the allegations could shots at the former pope's legacy at all. ma'am, he mentioned in dodge le people in germany, no longer trust, jasa fry's thinker, the former polk county, the catholic church in germany is in a serious crisis, and many people are leaving the church. many are doubting their bishop life, among many are calling for more option to finally be taken. just perhaps also that the state should push forward with investigating the abuses and compensating the victims from his boss up for farm carp. roxanne has already admitted, he made a false statement during the investigation. it found evidence he was at
9:17 pm
a meeting where an abusive priest was discussed after he had repeatedly claimed he didn't attend. he now says that with an oversight he's previously denied any wrong doing. and as yet to give a full response to the findings. but the reports, commissioned by the catholic church and munich, found abuse was widespread and suggested a culture of cover ups. it found at least 495 cases of abuse in the archdiocese of munich between 19452019. the real figure is thought to be far higher. you spun the fog. it is an interesting question. is whether that singer could also faced legal action. no one knows whether the diplomatic immunity he had as a pope, which still protect him as someone who has resigned his pope and now lives in the vatican as a private individual, even as own even he can leaped to you with dish. is it a few months time, theoretically, we could expect to see lawyers in germany following a lawsuit or pursuing legal action against joseph rod singer who at the time and munich did not tackle cases of abuse,
9:18 pm
but covered them up. the self connect had to the not for touched at the former pope is now 94 years old and he's facing mounting pressure over his mishandling of sexual abuse within the catholic church. a scandal that reaches far beyond germany . we can speak now to our religious affairs analyst martin gac high martin. i will ask you about what we heard from cardinal ryan had marks to day saying that he accepts moral responsibility and that he hadn't done enough to help victims. what consequences do you think that we will see for him and other church leaders? you know, i mean the, the big question here, it's whether persecution will mature into sort of a case and sort of this brief. i mean, i think that the number is somewhere around 40 will be brought to justice. you know, we can only run and press and then, and generally it would seem that the amount of effort they require and amount of
9:19 pm
willingness for the church to turn in. and actually provide proofs would, would it's a pretty tall order. that being said, i think that, you know, this case basically shows a church in a complete state of disrepair that can simply not police itself. if we look at the report, it also, as we mentioned, heavily incriminate the former pope benedict. do we now have complete clarity on the world that he played and all of this? no, we don't actually because obviously ultimately, especially after he became pope, i mean, he was the person with the ultimate authority in terms of overseen, the leasing, controlling and sort of accounting for bus gates and, and current cases within the church case of abuse of children. what we do know, however, is that number one, he was aware of one set of cases in his office which was,
9:20 pm
which was meaning pricing. and what we also know that he lied about not knowing, you know, the details of those cases. it is not clear whether he was involved in allowing this particular priest which was moved from when parish, where he had abuse children to another parish where he would continue to abuse children who are actually with him both in that decision. but that's the kind of information that an investigation would need to bring out and he would give us full clarity. what do you think is important for the victims now? well, i mean, you know, the question for the victims has been for a very long time and will continue to be redress. i'm essentially bringing justice for crimes committed bed. i think that the bigger question that we have at the stage when we realised that, you know, the, the knowledge of the fact when all the way to the top of the church. and as a matter of fact, you know, the abuses continued and it was not just germany or notice milton,
9:21 pm
but he was across the work. we're talking about hundreds of thousands of cases. it's quite clear that know there is a political responsibility that comes to the states that have an absolute responsibility to act against the church in order to actually protect you know, future and possible current victims. so i think that the change is that now the big choice, much, much broader and we have a much better idea of what was happening at the top of the church concerning abuse gets us. our religious affairs analysts. martin got thank you very much. the german parliament has marked holocaust. remember and stay with a special ceremony including tributes to victims, witness testimony and music. ah . one of the guest speakers was 87 year old holocaust survivor in ga, alabama. she described her traumatic childhood into daisy and stud concentration
