ah ah ah, this is dw news live from berlin, germany, chancellor says vladimir putin cannot be allowed to win his war on you cried. but all shots did not use the stage of the world economic forum to meet ukraine's requests for more weapons. also coming up, russia steps up it's attacks in eastern ukraine. multiple towns and cities are hit
1:01 pm
by intense shelling. as moscow focuses on, capturing the don bass region and a vigil for the victims of america's worst school shooting in a decade. the massacre as renewed the debate over gun violence in the us. ah, i'm pablo foliage. welcome to the program. german chancellor. all schoultz has said that russia's president vladimir putin cannot be allowed to win the war in ukraine . giving a special address at the world economic form in davos, switzerland, sholtes, underlined his support for ukraine pledging that germany would end its reliance on russian oil and gas. but he didn't deliver on ukraine's request to supply more weapons. schultz said that russia's war shows that the world's democracies need to
1:02 pm
work together to confront global threats. like climate change and food security. it on that see a gal, a goal is crystal clear in putin must not win this war when he can retire. and i'm convinced that he will not when it gets even now he has failed to meet any of his strategic goals. i know i nominate his, i'm russia capturing all of ukraine seems less likely now than it did at the start of the war. thanks. not least the remarkable defense put up by the ukrainian army and people ukraine is now emphasizing his european future and more than ever before, or piercer to comfort. all right, well let's get some more analysis from our very own d, w critical, corresponding teresa delhi. he's here with me in studio how julia now, german chancellor shows addressed a whole range of topics in his speech. what sort of the most for you? well, the warren ukraine was an overarching theme at the form this year. and obviously
1:03 pm
the chancellor also addressed it at the beginning of his speech and he was, he wanted to put forward the message of how much of a turning point the war has been for germany and germany's policy for one. he highlighted the fact that it's the 1st time that germany is delivering weapons to a country involved in a conflict. and also he reminded his audience that germany has approved up to 100000000000 euros to invest in the military. something that had not been done in recent years, and this comes to show how much of a change and a shift in policy we've seen with in germany. but he also spoke about broader issues, for example, shows his vision of a multi polar world. and that it's not just some powers that are dominating the discourse and will dominate the discourse in the coming years. but how new
1:04 pm
countries will come to have more relevance in the world, the economy, and in the world policy? to the tell us a little bit more about what he was talking a lot about ukraine and how germany has changed. germany has received a lot of criticism am in the past few months with regards to their policies in ukraine. was this sort of a way of dealing with that criticism. in part it was here, he highlighted how germany is working together with partners. for example, nato allies to come together and have a, a concerted effort in trying to help you crane, but also at the same time trying not to set or provoke russian not to become a party in this war. and germany has been criticized also from ukraine, directly of not doing enough to support the country, especially in terms of delivering rep weapons. we've heard that also at the forum, but shows that not really addressed that directly. so i don't see the ukranian side
1:05 pm
really being satisfied with what he said today to really briefly if you could, how significant is it that he close to so much? so he was the only a g 7 leader to be present at the summit this year. and it's the 1st time that he is there in person as the german chancellor. and he was there to set the agenda of his government for the coming the coming years. it's the 1st time the chancellor is there for germany. that is not american in quite a long time and looking at how a broad scope he had in his speech, it seems like he wants to show that germany is ready to play a leading role in the world. dw political correspondent, juliessa delhi. thank you. well let's bring in dw, corresponding christine plants and who is in davos, switzerland covering the world economic forum. hi, good to see you. now, what was your main takeaway from german chancellor,
1:06 pm
olaf shows the speech yet. well. what really stood out to me was a bit of the stronger language we were hearing from shots today, but at the same time, he did manage to walk this cautious line that we've come to associate with him. i'm, as we heard earlier, he did say that russia cannot, should not win this war will not win this war. earlier we'd been hearing him saying things more like this warm up and so much more generic statements from the past. what he was saying today, jiving also quite well with what european commission president or savant or land was saying earlier this week. she said ukraine must win this war. and i'm, as you were just speaking about i'm, he also used the opportunity to highlight all the efforts that germany has put into helping ukraine's cause weaning themselves off of russian energy, delivering us weapons which they hadn't done in conflict zones in the past. but critics would remind you that, for example, german reliance on russian energy is arguably one of the reasons that this war was possible in the 1st place. christie, the ukraine war,
1:07 pm
was the overarching theme at this. so by now ukraine's presidency lansky addressed the form twice and then the kitch co brothers are also there and all of them urging global leaders to provide them with more military hardware. what has been the response to their police? right, was a reminder, ukraine has received a lot of military support from the west and thus far it's been largely soviet ero weaponry that they've been getting. and now what, what ukraine's really been asking for is modern weaponry, particularly what they want is more long range weaponry that could, for example, at sink russian ships. we've got a fleet of russian ships blocking huge shipments of grain getting, i'm getting out of ukraine. and there is a sense that this is worrying the west as well. these grain shipments are really, really necessary to many other markets around the globe. and there is a sort of looming food crisis right now. so this is definitely something at western leaders will be taking into consideration of the u. s. has provided some modern
1:08 pm
weaponry. it's remains to be seen. what else you grade will be getting, but there certainly does seem to be an openness to considering that christy climate change was on the agenda as well. but activists se claimed that the world economic form hasn't really done very much with regards to this. and are the protests getting any traction? right, well up here you can see behind me were in this idyllic mountain forest setting. and it can feel like something of a davos bubble up here. i would say that participants don't seem particularly phased by the protests themselves. but what i will say is that around a 3rd of the panels on the agenda this week are about global warming. so that's not to say that this isn't a concern for people here now, but another point is of, for example, earlier this week, at a meeting with the 1000000000 or george soros, he is concerned that this war could mean i am at the end of civilization largely because issues like climate change or not getting the attention, they deserve. d,
1:09 pm
w, corresponding chrissy. christie plots in the, in davos, switzerland. thank you. russia continues to pound ukraine's eastern dumbass region. it's aiming to take the industrial heartland after failing to capture the ukrainian capital. keith, moscow says it will continue the offensive until it achieves its goals. ukrainian forces are doing their best to push back russian troops despite heavy shelling in this village now back in ukrainian hands. residents tell of their fears as the russians arrived. but i don't think you can we try to keep out of the way miss? i'm yeah, yeah. well maybe we should go back to the basement. she says that a little bit as a team of associated press film, russian artillery,
1:10 pm
keep up the bombardment along the road. more evidence of the fighting rushes objective is to cease to don best provinces done yet in the hands in the east. at least 12 people were killed by shilling as heavy fighting continues in and around civil war to nits. the local governor says the russians have taken 3 towns in the genetic region. russian troops are gaining ground in the east. these are frontline positions now abandoned by ukraine, but further away from the fighting in areas where the ukrainians have regained control residence are determined to start over. over 30 or 30. the people are returning home even though it's safer to wait further away . but it's easier to teach us. her vision was person miss. so who the board of that
1:11 pm
to the see the new people are coming back to their houses and starting to rebuild the helping our military, your school. what as the battle for done best intensifies, many more lives will be lost or russian forces are bombarding the twin cities of soviet c 0. don't ask and lucy shanks, i asked are correspond, mathias billing, who's in eastern ukraine. why these places are so significant? well this city is actually has been shelled for a long time now. it's surrounded from 3 sides by the russian army inside the city. the ukrainian army is holding, but it's becoming increasingly more difficult as the main bridge leading into the city that side that is not a way it's not surrounded is a river actually, and this bridge has been blown up and every few smaller,
1:12 pm
one smaller bridge actually that leads into the city, so it's very difficult to get supplies. their water and electricity are down in the city and mobile signal as well. the same is true for the sister city that lies on the other side of the address river. listen. sions. both of the cities have been cut off, electricity and water drinking water needs to be brought there. and the main danger is now that the road that leads into these 2 cities into less a chance can then buy a smaller bridge into a saver than as might be, count fighting has been intense along the main road going in there. and the russians have even been on that road, but then they have been ford back but very dangerous to drive their cars that take this road are being regularly. sheldon, if occasions are only possible in armored vehicles. so it's a very tough situation. there's one other road, but it's small. it doesn't have the same capacity as, as, as this one. so the danger is, of course,
1:13 pm
that those 2 cities will end up being completely surrounded and then we would the weights we would see probably something like in mary you for where a whole city is, including the residence, to remain there more than $30000.00 people in the 2 cities where these residents would be trapped together with the military trying to fight them off. being shelled, constantly. now at president lansky refuses to give up any ukrainian territory so no concession spokane ukrainian force is hold on to the east of the country. while the ukrainian or forces are holding many positions here. so every day we get reports that 10 attacks by the russians. for example, have been fought back, but an 11th attack does succeed. and if that continues over long period of time, there are significant games. so this is not an easy game for the russians if they're not easily taking any positions, but they have a lot of firepower, a lot of artillery and they keep shelling these positions have been keeping selling
1:14 pm
these positions for 3 months. ukraine has said several times and they need more, tillery, i'm, they are getting a jewelry from the western partners from the u. s. notably the m 777. how it says, for example, are very useful for them, but it doesn't seem to be enough at the moment. did you correspond mateus putting in from a tourist can eastern ukraine? thank you. the united nations estimates that nearly 7000000 ukrainians have left their homeland since the invasion. over half a 1000000 of them have come here to germany. we went to me to a mother and her daughter who are staying with a host family. here in berlin. said me, if ne of keith, after a month of heavy russian selling much of the city is destroyed, it is anna and such as hometown. in march, the mother and daughter fled to berlin, but their thoughts are still with their family and friends in ukraine. in way
1:15 pm
louisiana, i thought i started, my friends, stayed in sion. if my classmates will, i can't bear the thought that they did not have the chance to escape even though they wanted to. i think it's terrifying what and even though i'm doing well here, it's hard because i can't help them. beckon ukraine and i was finishing up high school. sasha walked in a cool center than the attack started. now they live with mountain and cornelia young english. he's an entrepreneur, she's a doctor. the couple drove to the polish ukrainian border to help any refugees and take them to germany. here. and the and susan's, it's honestly, humans are social beings. if someone folds down next to you, you bent down and picked them up again. it's completely natural for yourself to day
1:16 pm
. and then sasha, at the social welfare office of like all ukrainian refugees and germany, they can apply for financial aid. to day they receive that fast monthly payment, $350.00 euros each. oh my husband loves nick on they want to save up and send some money to grandmother so she can prepare her roof skin which was destroyed in the wool. but needless. anon, sasha want to integrate quickly. they have signed up for a german language course. a charge congregation openings. is it for free? hub in the community? do you have children? here been? i am 2 children. if a little that if you go a bud. okay, it did so yes, we wouldn't, we want to start until monday. i play them with the little boy,
1:17 pm
and that's why we do that also. video minute with the mother and daughter, i slowly finding that bearings in berlin. and i could even imagine studying in germany. and last i want all to come back to ukraine to see my family members. but i think about leaving in german of my life. yeah. and if don't both of us, if the i'm too old to completely overturn my former life, or my relatives on ukraine and my house to go, i want and that to decide for herself whether she wants to st. germany, overton to ukraine. little. but i want to go home sunday, you leave it on most of the, i yeah, it's a little to them. what but bush. but at the moment, they have no idea how long that will take a good deal. 3 paris in political activists have been awarded this year's

1:19 pm
but we must take action early on. so on that is the responsibility of all of us on board. and a part of that responsibility is the reorganizing of german and european policy with respect to our neighbors in the east. to develop a new security framework, williams, the hyphen faith. we didn't ask for this, but we owe it to our eastern neighbors, knocked on shortly. or we can now talk to d. w, brussels bureau chief, alexandra phenomena who is at the venue in and good to see you. alexandra. now what were the winners reactions to being awarded the yeah. charlemagne, price. well, during the ceremony that well so held right behind me in the town, whole of october. the 3 on a rees made clear how on earth they are to receive the prize. of course one of them, maria callously cover. it's in jail in viola ruth and was represented here by her sister. but all on the re said that they believe that this price is a sign, an evidence that europe and in particular germany has not forgotten, verified,

1:21 pm
de facto, this is a murder warrant. shouldn't so political openings are becoming a reality. right? well, despite attention being focused on the war in ukraine, that the situation for the opposition remains very difficult. am in better bruce, what effect is russia's invasion of ukraine having on batteries is fight for democracy. with cit, llanas, she cannot scan. she told me that of course it's now becoming a bit more difficult to to convince you of not to forget belie ruth, but she also stressed that belie ruth is a very important country. when we talk about death, your political situation, we know that lucas shenequa is the close ally of food and dead russia stations. there are troops at their so and see how not square said at that. only if we bill a roost could help or improve the situation than to without a freebie allow ruth,
1:22 pm
there will be a constant threat to ukraine in other european nations. and she also made clear that the bill i was and people are standing with ukraine. many of them fired together with the ukranian soldiers and sir, some of them i were even according to reports, responsible for carrying out a subway to ex, of sabotage against the russian troops, dw brussels bureau chief, alexander phenomena, and ark and forth. thank you. well, here's a quick roundup of some other stories making news around the world. shanghai has relaxed, some coven, 19 curves ahead of a plan to exit from locked i am next month. more people have been allowed out of their homes to work or by essentials. this comes as authorities elsewhere in china . step up there 0 cove policy, including in the capitol beijing. boeing star line or astronaut capsule has
1:23 pm
returned successfully to earth from the international space station. previous test flights were dogged by technical problems to cancel, landed safely in the u. s. state of new mexico paving the way for a crude mission path. next year, february is unfolding. you could see the texan town of val, they has held a vigil to honor the victims of the latest school massacre in the us. 21 people were killed in tuesday's mass shooting. most of them young children. the killings have once again highlighted the divisive issue of gun control in the united states . 6 the town of you valley is mourning the loss of their loved ones. 19 children into d jose 21 lives that were needlessly cut short. that idly knit community is the latest in the us to be devastated by gun violence. but texas governor greg abbott believes mental health not access to guns is the real
1:24 pm
issue. we as a state, we are this society. neither do a better job with mental health. anybody who shoots somebody else has a mental health challenge period. we has a government need to find a way to target that mental health challenge and do something about it. democratic b dot ross is vying to be the next governor of texas in an upcoming election, publicly confronted reg i. but during his press conference, he accused the republican of being responsible for the killings by liberalizing state gun laws. the question all you need to ask him is why does he want violent criminals to be able to carry guns on our streets? go go, ask him that he has not had to answer for any of this and he gets by with this theater. i'm calling it out. i came here to call it out to stop this. because if we
1:25 pm
don't stop it, it will continue to happen. despite the political arguments, families of the victims have little faith that things will change and it's always happens in the small town. nobody expects anything bad to happen and then it happens and everybody wants to make changes to prevent it from happening and it dies down a little bit. and that happens again, and there were just this cycle. i just want my baby. oh, i don't care. care with her. oh, but even as people across the u. s. and around the world express grief and sympathy, few believe that this will be the last such tragedy.
1:26 pm
oh, did of you correspondence, stefan simons, travel to the scene of the shooting in texas, and he sent us this update on how people are dealing with their grief. of course is pain, trauma shock and all of this, but they somewhat of a permanent and overreaching moment of silence. people here are withdrawn now it seems they're going inside. they stay inside, they don't want to talk, they don't want to interact, they're pretty much alone with their pain and with their frustration and with the trauma they experienced. and perhaps this is about to last for quite a while. now what's happening in washington, of course, is a healthy debate. now, progressive democrats propagating more change, tougher gun controlled, tougher restrictions. republicans on the other side, perhaps as suspected won't have, it won't touch it. for them, it's all about the 2nd amendment in the constitution that every american can bear
1:27 pm
arms and has the right to bear arms. and this should not be touched with i'll, here's a remind her of the top story we're following for you. german chancellor all actually says russian president vladimir putin cannot be allowed to win in ukraine. he also said that germany will end its dependence on russia. oil and gas sholtes was addressing the final day of the world economic form in davos, switzerland. well, that's all from us for now. of next focus on europe for me and the team. hampered in take care, see that up the next hour with
