11:05 pm
forces, ukraine currently needs about a 100 of such systems to be able to conduct a counter offensive and to be able to liberate our land. so timing is crucial and we need to receive the systems fast. that was your 2nd advisor to the ukraine. defense minister, talking to us from keith. american senators have announced a bipartisan framework for limited curbs on firearms. the move falls short a stronger step. stop by president joe biden, and many democrats, but with new republican support, it would break a stalemate in congress that has lasted for decades despite mass killings and john protest. the renewed push for gun control comes after a teenager shot dead 19 school children and 2 teachers and in texas elementary school last month. so what would
11:06 pm
a deal in the senate on gun control look like? i put that question to d. w, send me some a scanner in washington. yeah, nick, the steel would do a few things. i'll take you through what was agreed upon now. it would provide money and to states to implement red flag laws. these are laws that allow officials to room remove guns from someone who's considered a risk. and these laws already exist in 19 states and in the district of columbia as well. it would close the so called boyfriend loophole, so that would stop people who have been convicted of domestic violence from an obtaining a firearm. it would also include an expanded background check for people who are under the age of $21.00 and want to purchase a gun. and it would give grants to states to address mental health concerns that something a lot of republicans have called for because they blame these mass shootings on mental health and not guns themselves. and it would give funding to schools to improve safety. now, the bipartisan group that worked on the steel said that this plan will save lives and protect the constitutional rights of law abiding americans. again,
11:07 pm
language there that is important to republicans. this is a deal in principle. the tax still needs to be drafted, but if it holds and makes it through the house, it would be a big deal because no, no legislation essentially has been passed on the federal level in 30 years. and nick, i was just on dw yesterday saying look as saying that any legislation looks doomed in the senate. so this appears to be a significant breakthrough. i remember that conversation with you. well, and this feels like a big surprise. but, but as you were saying, this kind of legislation has been called for 4 years. can you tell us just how did this come about this, this surprise deal? well, it took a massive outcry after the mass shootings and buffalo new val day a texas. you mentioned 19 children, 2 teachers were killed in that shooting. and one of the loudest voices was senator chris murphy is a democrat from the state of connecticut. that state witnessed a horrific mass shooting in 2012 at sandy hook. and he said at the time that doing nothing was not an option option and that he would be willing to accept incremental
11:08 pm
change. so he spearheaded this effort and he end democrats and the president made clear this deal certainly is not enough. they want to see more stringent laws. they want to see assault weapons. for example, band. they want to see say storage laws for gun stored at home were background checks on gun shows as well. but the devil is in the details here. nick, we have to see how much money they're actually going to allocate towards this if it passes. and also have to think about the fact that juvenile background checks might not stop at many masters who don't ever previous record. but again, senator chris murphy saying that this incremental change is better than nothing. well, i'm sure. yeah. fingers crossed so is i think the sentiment for many americans, particularly those who have suffered from all of those mass shootings over the years, see me. so i scanned that reporting force from washington dc. time for some other world news now. on a visit to helsinki, the nato secretary general un stover said that turkey security concerns over

11:13 pm
germany where you know, there is a real polity and it really tradition of having coalitions and finding agreements. that's not the case in france. it's been historically speaking, always very difficult for parties to agree on common agendas, and it's likely to be a lot more complicated for him on my call to govern this country in the coming 5 years. if he doesn't get these 289 seeds in a next weeks, 2nd round of fading here in the legislative elections in france. ok, well we'll be looking forward to talking to in a weeks time, to find out what happens. lisa lewis reporting for us from paris. time for some sports now in formula one max 1st step and has one the as by jan grant re to extend his lead at the top of the standings. the red bull driver took advantage after ferrari's sharlitra. again failed to finish after starting in full position ferrari sharla clerk had secured all but to pull positions this season. but
