6:04 am
the latest from the afghan capital. we're at one of some six thousand polling stations across 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 not safer than it is on some of the regions where more than one thousand five stations have been forced to close the doors because of quakes on the telephone with the polls opened on time this morning at seven o'clock local time one of the first people to cross just damage this place is some of karzai and he urged afghans to follow the search now one of the major concerns of course remains is that of security there all the forces coming through all 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 boston
6:05 am
where we're hearing some injuries including afghan officials the southern city of kandahar has also made it and while kabul so far has been reasonably safe it was a nice explosion all 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 in fact is our support country 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 can in fact average it in some cases people are reporting being able to watch that inconsistency in minutes which means that they have a possibility to come back and vote again we're 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 that will be the other main concern on his mind as they come and costly ballot
6:06 am
today and whether or not with a ballot on it will make a difference outside a strong suit. amazing stuff the tens of thousands if not just at that time i think i'll see you around the country coming into the polling station we were checking we were also stopped by secret wait for misleading statements and forced upon our car if they were go if we find them to police has throughout the city council even talk united nations official today and it's time to place a series of worst to forty actual holes. are the twenty one different issues that seem to be some kind of constitutional crisis policy at r t kabul. or let's get some more reaction on this from washington d.c. where my lou innocent is a foreign policy expert from the cato institute says that the election is falling short of standards of democracy and exposes deeper problems inside the country. given the amount of insecurity and instability in the fact that there are flawed
6:07 am
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 there are twenty four hundred candidates who are thirty to 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 appears a little blatantly hypocritical why we're sort of supporting what is essentially
6:08 am
a very highly unpopular and corrupt regime in kabul that many people think are essentially a us puppet and yet we're sort of touting the ideals of liberty and democracy and freedom and different undercuts a lot of the principles we stand for and it makes us very hypocritical. you all with all exceed live from moscow it's good to have your company today still ahead for you we hit the campaign trail for the u.s. and midterm elections. fight an all time ally in poverty in more than fifteen years at these big name conservative leaders they want to marry me to ban gay marriage to bring god can find out what values some u.s. voters put at the top of the list in the times of crisis and in just a few moments right here on our. wealthy british style.
6:09 am
market why not. come to. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike stronger for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune into cars a report. soon which brightened a few. songs from fans to christian. means for instance on t.v. dot com. one of russia's most wanted terrorist suspects who was detained in poland on friday on an international arrest warrant has just been released in the next few days the court will determine whether i should be extradited to russia following
6:10 am
moscow's demand to ton him over. is following the developments for us in warsaw. walked out of this very building the warsaw as district court late on friday night after the court decided 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 kind of 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 would like to remind to our viewers 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
6:11 am
as it has an international arrest warrant issued on him he is wanted by the interpol he was detained in a war cell for questioning in the local prosecutor's office now they have been lots of comments coming from the officials in poland concerning the fate of the concerning concerning whether he would be extradited to russia including comments from the country's prime minister donors. are going to 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
6:12 am
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 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 moscow 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
6:13 am
school has got to getting back to russian holding trial over him but this story is yet unclear and whether he will be extradited to moscow is still unclear. reporting the most sort of. political analyst from the newspaper told us why he thinks poland will not extradite to russia. i think that despite current approach men and russian pose for 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 poorly should be relieved they also have the only mitigations they have all on domestic agenda and they can go to friday so i see at this as a sort of get them out of game you see this all in all i think you would not gold rush they were some group conflicting reports some said that he was not informed
6:14 am
that he might be arrested but i think 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 imports prime minister said that russia should not go to friday's expectations definitely i think this is is a moment of truth for our relations moment just to see how much of this relations while asking poorly side just to sense that i have to moscow we make it ourselves clear that he's not going to go until 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 entitle to the 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.
