5:04 am
afghanistan and as you can see behind me a relatively reasonable turnout there have also been no reports of violence at this particular station so far this is probably because we're in the capital city of kabul where relatively speaking the situation is a lot calmer and a lot safer than it is on some of the regions where more than one thousand five stations have been forced to close their doors because of threats on the telephone and the polls opened on time this morning at seven o'clock local time one of the first people to cross to stomach this president hamid karzai and he urged afghans to follow up the search now one of the major concerns of course remains of that of security there are reports coming through of any voting station that took a direct hit by a rocket in the eastern part of the country we're hearing of injuries we're hearing of people killed in the city of jalalabad as well as in the eastern city of last february feeling some injuries including afghan officials with the southern city of
5:05 am
kandahar has also made it and while kabul so far has been reasonably safe there was one as explosion or in the early hours of this morning before the polls opened the other concern is that of a great marriage chance now we are hearing that in some of the stationary includes offering portcullis here so much so that instead of exhausting on people saying there's still some ninety six i was after they voted and that is the ink that shows if you could in fact average it in some cases people are reported not being able to watch that in cost of three minutes which means that they have a possibility to come back and vote again also hearing from the independent electoral commission that they have uncovered thousands if not tens of thousands of fake ballot boxes these concerns are significant particularly in light of last year's presidential elections which were marred by reports of widespread corruption and i believe the other main concern of course minds as they come and costly ballots today and whether or not they ballots and will make a difference outside a strong structure. amazing stuff nineteen years of thousands if not backed up by

the saudi forces in iraq the french coming into the polling station we would shake we will stop by six way from listening station and four strike up comedy if you will go if we find one to police has two officers who have marveled at the top united nations official text and it's time to face the worst times to make something better your posts. five point one difference be second solution to some kind of constitutional crisis altie couple. that was artie's posterior reporting their. innocent foreign policy expert from the cato institute says the election is falling short of standards of democracy and exposes deeper problems within the country. given the amount of insecurity and instability in the fact that there are flawed voter registries there's been voter intimidation voter bribery there's a great deal of uncertainty as to what's going to happen and despite the fact that
5:07 am
there are twenty four hundred candidates. forty of them are women you have to really understand that the complexity of all this means that there really won't be what we would define as a liberal democratic electoral process what's interesting is that there's sort of a paradox with u.s. policy in u.s. policymakers in particular especially regarding this election and they're placing so much emphasis on these processes on the fact that you know these are elections that allow the voice of the afghan people to speak to the world that this is shows that they're on the march toward a democratic process but the same time they're placing so much emphasis on a process that is deeply profoundly flawed and so if they're going to place such a huge light on this process and it could be so fundamentally problematic this sort of underscores underscores a sort of the broader problems in some ways a metaphor for the problems we have in the country as a whole it appears a little blatantly hypocritical why we're sort of supporting what is essentially a very highly unpopular and corrupt regime in kabul that many of the people think are essentially a us puppet and yet we're sort of touting the ideals of liberty and democracy and
5:08 am
freedom and different undercuts a lot of the principles we stand for and it makes us very hypocritical. stay with us here on r t still ahead we hit the campaign trail for the u.s. midterm elections. by an all time high body of more than a year in the name conservative what america needs to ban gay marriage to bring god back and. find out what some what value some u.s. voters put at the top of the list in times of crisis it's coming your way in a few moments. first though one of russia's most wanted terrorist suspects who was detained in poland on friday on an international arrest warrant has been released in the next few days a court will determine whether ahmed should be extradited to russia following moscow's demands to hand him over artie's alexei or a chef he has been has been following developments in warsaw. walked out of this very building warsaw's district court late on friday night after the court decided
5:09 am
that it cannot keep in detention any longer the court justified this decision saying that. has a political refugee status in the u.k. and this status applies to the whole of the european union and that's why as a coyote had to be released it is really hard to say now whether this decision was somehow influenced by his lawyers any kind of bail but what we've heard from the officials in the court is that if i had to be released because of his political refugee status now i'd like to remind all of us that one of russia's wanted terrorist suspects was detained in warsaw early on friday morning after he came here to attend the third old world congress of the chechen people and as long as it has an international arrest warrant issued on him he is wanted by the interpol he was detained in warsaw for questioning in the local prosecutor's office now there's been lots of comments coming from the officials in poland concerning the fate of
5:10 am
the concerning concerning whether he would be extradited to russia including comments from the country's prime minister don't. you the prosecutor general tells me they have no choice but to start extradition procedures but these procedures do not mean an instant extradition in the russian side shouldn't necessarily hope for a decision that will satisfy the media is now speculating here in poland where the can leave the country as we heard from the representative of the district court in war so that is free to leave the country we know that he is now attending the congress of the chechen people obviously the mission which he came here for and we still expecting any news whatsoever on the whether he will be extradited or not and whether he can leave the country or not it's been a tough battle for moscow to persuade other countries that must be extradited since . into the political asylum in the u.k. and at the same time he was placed on the most wanted list in russia he is accused
5:11 am
of trustees in the north caucasus region including many different horrible things terror attacks in the caucasus region including a terror attack in moscow in the theater siege the nord-ost theater siege which took place in moscow believes that as a cry of has his involvement in that attack as well he is good friends with buddies because of ski another person who is wanted in russia for money laundering and fraud and ever since the these two were placed on most wanted list by mosco russia has been trying to persuade the u.k. for these two to be extradited but so far these attempts have been futile and both remain in political asylum an asylum in the u.k. indeed this situation when he was detained in poland is the closest so far most got to getting back to russia and holding trial over him but this story is yet unclear and whether he will be extradited to moscow is still unclear logical analyst sergei
5:12 am
stroken from the commerce newspaper tells r t why he thinks poland will not extradite psyche to russia. i think that despite current approach mint and russian polls show relations and despite russia's strong pledge pledges to extradite him i don't think that we expect him to come back to russia i personally would be very surprised if he's extradited for simple reason that still this is a very politically charged issue and the as you understand. the ruling elite they also have the only mitigations they have all on domestic agenda and they can go to try and so i see at this as a sort of cat and mouse game you see this all in all i think you would not gold rush they were a subgroup conflicting reports some said that he was not informed that he might be arrested but i think that the reason is that he simply understood that port authorities had no guts just to arrest him and to send him to russia and in fact it was proved yes to do and polish prime minister said that russia should not go to
5:13 am
fly in its expectations definitely i think this is is a moment of truth for our relations moment just to see how much you are this relations while asking poorly side just to send like i have to moscow we make it ourselves clear that he's not going to go into now much he's not going to face kind of reports of course of what he's facing that those are very serious accusations but definitely he would be intitled to best lawyers and the case would be fully transparent and it would come under close scrutiny of international community of international human rights activists so i don't understand why such a big fuss or what that's why he can go to russia can be extradited. the u.s. is preparing for a mid-term elections against a background of more grim news this week for the economy but on the campaign trail for some parties it's not finance but family values that should be the priority our teams christine for as our has been following the conservative values voter summit
5:14 am
. they say they came to take america back it isn't our values our shared timeless values that have changed has it it's our leaders that have changed in campaign like speeches they criticized among other things president obama the white house tries to argue that their stimulus has helped. that's a bit like saying that squirting water from a garden hose helps put a forest fire up one day after staggering numbers were released from the u.s. census bureau showing a more than fourteen percent increase of those living below the poverty line powerful organizations and big name politicians came out to spread this message you cannot divorce the social issues from the fiscal and financial issues so just what are these pressing social issues like anything else everything's great hope you are free to the first one organization says marriage in america is under attack
5:15 am
marriage is a fundamental right but there is not a fundamental right to marry whoever you want our government our policies have always where you lated who you marry or who you may not know the national organization of marriage wants to keep it that way in other words no gay marriage and speaking of gays tradition family and property works to keep them out of the military when you fight for freedom shouldn't you also want to have freedom. obviously we have we have to fight for freedom and freedom does not mean license to do whatever you want these issues so important to the masses here a new lobbying group has been formed it's aim is that republican elected officials to get them to put social issues back at the top of their agenda these are elected officials they were sent to washington to represent the people in their district and their states many of these people the bottom line is they can't pay their mortgage they don't have a job shouldn't that be the number one focus the thing is is that the issue of the
5:16 am
middle class that's the main issue at stake here the middle class has a number of priorities it's the main class that is the emphasis for social issues well you heard it here first the middle class cares most about social issues a month there is one issue even more important to the participants here god hala avalanche from an almighty god and then god. upon the individual power and then the individual in turn confirms up portion of that power on the government reserving all the remainder of the power to themselves for the last two years the most down vote in the conservative movement have come from the tea party key which stands for tax enough already but here are the voters values on that perhaps a turning point that things are changing that despite an all time high in poverty in more than fifty years at these big name conservative leaders say what america
5:17 am
needs is to ban gay marriage and to bring god back into your reporting in washington fifteen right now our team. if you were to go fishing in the baltic sea you might be shocked by what you really in thousands of world war two era mines and mortar shells are made on the seabed are still considered a risk artie's oxide only touch over reports on the efforts to make the area safe. cold word but determined to do are does a man on a mission and that mission is to monitor the state of all german munitions. even with merchant got the visibilities load just a couple of meters their missiles every web somewhere in boxes and tightly packed together the boat could be from world war two it's wrecked some shells actually laying on the seabed near but. one and a half kilometers of shore seventeen meters underwater and ten soudan me sile still on board this german ship is just one of the many reminders
5:18 am
a world war two in the baltics the russian emergencies ministry list some was ninety underwater hotspots in this area alone but only a few have been checked subtly little of which you know personally these missiles are very dangerous there are none that have rusted away and become homeless on the contrary some that we take out here in very good working condition. they some can ship is on the russian emergences minister to do list but with money tight and bureaucracy lawn and complicated it's not something that can be done quickly and while they wait local fishermen feel the weapons will still get their chance to fulfill their deadly role boats have been known to return to port with all torpedoes and then nets captain valeri or motion knows only too well the dangers he says they deeply and that goes the bigger the trouble it can bring out. but once a fisherman from our village at thirty six missiles in his net he was fishing near it on cape and broke the multiple t's they put all the missiles right on
