09 - Germany's role in Ukraine negotiations, the Bishop of Bling and the Frankfurt Airport strike

Germany plays a large role in helping peace negotiations in the Ukraine this week, Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst's outlandish spending of charity funds, and believe it or not, Germany has over 2000 lakes in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

This week: 

  • Ukraine signs an agreement for a unity government with help of Germany.
  • A German Bishop wildly misuses funds of a charity for his personal residence.
  • Security workers go on a 21 hour strike at the Frankfurt Airport demanding higher wages.
  • Our German A-Z guide covers the letter "I" and we dive into the the land of lakes, Mecklenburgische Seenplatte.
