Now should the ECB do something about this period of no inflation in the Euro zone -- Would we -- really concerned about is that the Euro area is strapped into a little growth annual inflation equilibrium. And is so far as real information. In addition to the temporary factors. Maybe indeed. The -- a part of city over rates of growth this is something that this will be remedied can hopefully see actors need to play the part. Poetry bode C needs to keep making sure.

When he takes place and also will be very important for increasing. The growth. Of team unity and a sustained basis that these structural reforms that are much talked about but we're very bitter election. He's their exception if you specific cases that these structural reforms getting enacted in these basically minor as soon as possible. Extra cash in the banking system in the eurozone has dropped below the knock -- 100 billion euros and this is putting pressure on. On the overnight it's short term money market rates which have -- now about the main refinancing rate. Is this a sign of normalization or a reason to be concerned. Well I think I think that term. Convenient. Some reduction in excess liquidity. He sees something we choose not to have which is not about time the question is how far East -- -- -- this is something that. We need to be assists. Depending on on on the future of pollution but so far I don't think that this -- say a tremendous cause for concern quite country. Not extend Tuesday Ukraine what is your assessment of the situation economics if you -- the situation in the Ukraine.
