we have been striving for reconciliation with both when we had offered it was but now russia's president putin seeks to subjugate ukraine on to destroy its culture. and its identity with president putin likens his barbaric war of aggression. to that fight against the nazis service was like, this is a falsification of history and infamy. we have a duty to say this in no uncertain terms as of a pre of one this i'm joined by the job is chief political editor. ok, look now in the studio to unpack part of that speech for us. what was the main message for the german people clearly that this falsification of history as well as holds push, it has the consequence that germany has the imperative to back ukraine against, as he repeatedly says, the aggressive meaning russia. but he personalizes it, meaning vladimir putin. he differentiates between the russian people and fighting
9:09 pm
of putin himself, and traditionally and the 8th of may is seen as a day of liberation. it's also a day where germany commemorates the sacrifices brought by the allied forces, sacrifices brought by ukraine and by russia. and now this turn around in history that all the sold spoke about 3 days after the russian attack on ukraine. also means that this perspective on history is changing in germany. as he puts it, he's telling the german people must stand up against falsification of history. and how will his speech be received in give? well, it's of course welcome support. it's also welcome support. as germany holds the d 7 presidency, germany has demonstrated that it backs ukraine also, ever since the annexation of crimea, almost 2000000000 euros in german money has been pumped into the ukranian economy. and germany has also crossed its own red lines in supplying weapons and supplying
9:10 pm
