three astronauts remain stranded in orbit as a technical glitch stops their shuttle from on docking but mission control says the crew is in no danger of. cia trained death squads reportedly fighting the taliban in pakistan while concerns much of what will happen to the fighters once the u.s. is out of the region. also tonight calls for peace and a furious look at the biggest gathering of world leaders in the big apple. around those talks with the international community on its uranium enrichment program could resume as early as next month but is he continuing the political mine find out all the latest details in our report from new york just ahead in the program.
4:01 pm
hello it's midnight here in moscow you're watching news channel with me kevin now in our top story tonight for the first time ever a soyuz spacecraft has failed to undock from the international space station leaving the crew temporarily stuck in orbit two russian cosmonauts on a nasa astronaut were ready to return to earth one of the alarm signal technical problems. as the latest. a difficult maneuver and not a good time to hear warning bells after spending nearly six months in orbit three of the current i says crew get held up trying to head for home while trying to undo the automatic lock between the space station and seize landing module feel to open system. and alarm went off aboard the spacecraft saying that the airlock isn't
4:02 pm
properly secured and the vehicle isn't isolated from the vacuum of space after a thorough inspection it turned out this was a false alarm and this is not an ordinary jammed lock this journey home takes intense preparation. they haven't slept for a day preparing for the landing and checking the spacecraft costumes and testing the air tightness and now they have to go through that all over again which means another day where no wrist it's very tough but they're well trained. safety is the watchword here mission control center needs to be one hundred percent certain before giving the next green light we could have proceeded with the undocking and landing today but we decided to do it tomorrow just to be sure there is nothing wrong with either the station or the landing module. now the problem is soon nothing should stops a spacecraft from successfully detaching his plans in case of emergency in case the spacecraft fails to undock again there's always
4:03 pm
a back up module that they can he is too far i bat to earth and there's always plan c s then by say you spacecraft that's ready to take off for the isis and bring the stranded crew safely back to earth not only the arty kind of moscow region. elite terror killed teams run by america's intelligence agency have no take on the u.s. led war beyond afghanistan voser the claims of a new book called obama's wars by veteran journalist bob woodward he revealed that a secret army of some three thousand afghan fighters said to hunt out the taliban have now infiltrated. there's a report of the cia's covert afghan squad was never well guarded secret the first. u.s. officials for some time have been talking quite openly and brazenly about secret armies operating here although these officials speak anonymously some of them of gone so far as to actually brag and boast that some of their most effective
4:04 pm
counterinsurgency efforts have been thanks to groups like this now in a book that will be released and next week i'm titled obama's war was written by bob woodward he suggests that there are as many as three thousand afghan assassins who have been directly trained and funded by the cia to carry out a can design operations in which they capture and kill al qaeda and taliban fighters and leaders here in afghanistan and also across the border in pakistan and this is something that is not going to go down well with his there has always been a raid light on u.s. forces operating here in afghanistan not to cross over into pakistan and this coupled with the fact that the u.s. has been firing missiles from a manned u.s. drone aircraft a rate higher than the bush administration does point to an enlargement of the u.s. president barack obama's closer to when the region that is the million dollar question what does happen to these heavily trained heavily equipped and heavily
4:05 pm
funded groups if and when the u. is loses interest in this part of the world this is a decades old strategy we're not talking about something new we're talking about a system when for whatever reasons it is not politically or economically or militarily viable for the united states to take some kind of direct action it employs proxy armies the same thing or a very similar type of operation happened in iraq against al qaida there we saw the same thing happening back in the one nine hundred eighty s. here in afghanistan when the cia sponsored which if you did to take on the soviets and very often people refer to this as the salvador option a throwback to the seventy's and eighty's when the u.s. sponsored did squads in countries in latin america to take on its enemies. artie's paul asli reporting from afghanistan's capital kabul more thoughts on this story spoke to us is from the think tank project from pakistan in the twenty first century he says the death squads may become
4:06 pm
a major source of problems for both afghanistan and pakistan. but the united states continues to rely on warlords in afghanistan when when i heard about the this mercenary force of three thousand well trained up guns i still there's one part of the story that is still missing and that is where these three thousand of gun volunteers for this mercenary army came from and i have no doubt about the answer to this question and that is they came and they were recommended by some of the warlords of course as you know there is a there's a problem of loyalty and enough to understand you cannot recruit people without knowing exactly where they coming from so most of this three thousand force must have come recommended from some of the warlords and these warlords are really milking the u.s. government and the u.s. military they're making a lot of money and of course we all know the story of what happened in tora bora back in november and in december two thousand and one when it was some of bin laden actually skate from tora bora thanks actually to the very allies of the u.s.
4:07 pm
military the of gone warlords who some of them according to reports took money and let many almost one thousand al qaeda fighters really skate so you really these are really shifting loyalties and these three thousand fighters must have come from somewhere and they must have loyalty is to some warlords inside afghanistan and this confirms actually that we will have problems about these militias and these mercenaries getting out of control at some point in the future. through the program follow up he's closer to the job expose the ethnic diversity of the sun is far east . iran's president says his country is ready for dialogue on its nuclear program what's more. indicated it will powers can lead to negotiations which could take place in october despite his combative talk at the u.n. general assembly where he claimed america could be behind the nine eleven attacks prompting u.s. delegates to walk out. as the latest from. this friday is actually the first
4:08 pm
time in these last couple of days that mahmoud ahmadinejad has finally said that dialogue with the international community on iran's richmond program is a possibility and that these talks could come as early as october after being halted last year and this is really being seen over here as the first more or less constructive comments made by the iranian president in these last couple of days in new york because we have been seeing endless political mind games directed at the international community coming from the reigning in the president's where he was suggesting that the format being suggested by the international community is not sufficient enough is not satisfactory where he said that the possibility of the united states tries to attack iran and richness facility is also saying that the united states is still trying to dominate the world and so on really not a constructive approach to getting any results on the table so love it earlier this week at a meeting of the five permanent members of the security council plus germany there
4:09 pm
was an urge for iran to get back to negotiations and apparently at least for now he has agreed to doing this and getting down sitting down together for dialogue and of course this comes as negotiations were on hold last year which led to the united nations security council adopting a fourth round of sanctions against iran and we heard this thursday that the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov said that iran can become. an economic sanction free nation if tehran meets certain conditions and these conditions are following the cooperating with the international atomic energy agency as well as signing up to a range of nuclear nonproliferation international agreements and really lifting all suspicions of the international community and proving that it has peaceful intentions so it's really interesting how mahmoud ahmadinejad changes his mood and his approach to dealing with the rest of the world almost every other day and it's true that we saw a common. from him but really tried to push the buttons of the of american
4:10 pm
politicians here in new york when he addressed the un general assembly barack obama has already reacted saying that i didn't shards claims that most of the world believes that america was behind the attacks of nine september eleventh has basically called this hateful and offensive it was offensive it was hateful. and particularly for him to make the statement here in manhattan just. just a little north of ground zero. where families lost their loved ones people of all faiths all that this is. who you know see this as the seminal tragedy. of this generation for him to make a statement like that was inexcusable it's interesting that nobody really expected anything different than the actions from. it's traditional that he make speeches
4:11 pm
that last around forty minutes even though they're supposed to last fifteen and that he always uses the opportunity to lash out at the united states and of course we did see the u.s. delegation walk out of the assembly hall as mahmoud ahmadinejad was making his speech but again this is also not very new because it's seen as a sort of regular diplomatic slap in the face when a delegation is not happy about something that's being said they walk out this happens quite often and it's happened before this week and we have to mention of course that there have been lots of protests when it comes to mahmoud ahmadinejad we have been seeing dozens of people protesting getting out of buses with signs holding. messages such as ahmadinejad is a terrorist a tyrant a murderer you know hundreds of people outside the united nations throughout the week so most definitely after genocide has not just been in the headlines on people's minds but also on hateful signs at these protests.
4:12 pm
reporting from new york city for us this it was a lot of artsy dot com tonight the green party presidential candidate to be banned from the upcoming election up is a method to killing a kid when he was a child taking it too far because warranted let us know on our web site tonight that. you think it ought to. also take a look at this hunger increase this man has a lot of street cred as he shows off his skateboarding skills to his parish to do rather well as we look not taking a tumble either what's more the master class to see if you can develop teeth. so worldviews in brief now and australia as a limpet committee president says awarding the commonwealth games to new delhi was wrong job the coach added that the multinational body behind the event didn't have the resources to ensure preparations were done properly or on time some countries taking part of delaying their arrival because of concerns over incomplete buildings and squalid conditions in the athletes' village the six billion dollars games are

political regimes he still remembers the night his life changed completely no you are not japanese soldiers came to our village in korea in one nine hundred forty three and dragged me and some of my family out of our house they said they were taking us to sakhalin to work in a mine and promised we would only be there for two years because you can see i'm still here. kim lives in a small mining village in easton sakhalin home to several hundred people who share his story koreans were sent to cycling by japan as forced labor migrants to work in call mines thus they supply talk with the resources needed for the war. the japanese occupation ended more than six decades ago and most of the coal mines are no longer operational but the koreans are still here. just under a thousand koreans were sent to cycling by talk while their country was on the
4:16 pm
japanese rule. now there are almost fifty times as many living on the island and if the third generation has adapted to life here some of the older people who see themselves as forced migrants still dream of going back given their holiday gatherings turn into political rallies as you can demand historic justice. this organization deals with we've got three ation and has helped more than fifteen hundred koreans return home over the past twenty years its president says this number would be higher if talkee or provided help. because. as we believe japan is guilty of causing our situation in the first place since nine hundred eighty five we've heard tokyo apologize twice but it hasn't gone anywhere from there there's been no action that's why we rely on our own resources and help from russia and south korea. moskos stance is to assist the repatriation of the
4:17 pm
sakhalin koreans and local authorities say they try to do just that but the number of people wanting to leave is diminishing every year but it is going to go with a but will fully cooperate with local green organizations on the pattern but ethnic koreans are getting more and more into south and in life they held positions an administration there is successful in which no business and they get a good education and that's why some even come back after a patch nation to korea he. says he'd happily return to korea but all of his family are here so like many within the diaspora he sees no point in leaving his home even if this was not the home he chose. ski r.t. reporting from the cycling region. coming up next a televisual trip back in time was must explore soviet era moscow here on alt.

in the subtext of science that's the theme of this week's moscow ause i'm from the great space race to medical advances ever since the times of peace the great this country is being. obsessed with technological and biological developments of the day and also here at the russian academy of sciences. the economy was stuck in seventeen twenty full time many in the russian elite. but it's illogical and. as time progressed scientific research battle against censorship control. in eight hundred forty eight for example the government made it illegal. to universities in search of scientific training to bolshevik government to enlighten seventeen introduced censorship. of the sorest era bands throughout the soviet times
4:20 pm
from close to seventy cities through the space race. the world leaders and scientific discovery. everything checked research has kept top secret. over the centuries the periodic table of elements the monorail and the for example have been invented by russian scientists the closed world it once was now russia is working with dozens of countries around the world on the. scientific projects which brings us back to the cademy of sciences there are several conference halls inside this building here on the risky prospect of various presidents and scientific debate. this building opened in the one nine hundred seventy s. and at the time was the state of the arts with its solar powered energy and it always amazes me that you never really know. i didn't even know this and this place is called the golden hall and it has enough seats for one thousand two

4:23 pm
did work previously in different i'm now working to develop for example a new medicine for tuberculosis and she efficiency devices and also the aim is to bring those to the marketplace i mean if you funded and worked on a staggering two thousand seven hundred projects is that correct yes so we have funded during those years two thousand seven hundred sixteen fifteen sixteen years to sixteen years in many different scientific area as basic research applied to search but also improving the individual skills of the scientist to understand what you need to do for protect the search results so intellectual property protection how to write a business plan even how to write a project or false these are very important basic skills and we bring in experts to
4:24 pm
help but before i came here today i was hands of us and i haven't a clue what it is i said if it's assuring them to spend so. you have you have to explain forward this is a result of one of our projects it's one of innovation projects this is what you call a bio chip it's immobile instrument to diagnose. because .
4:25 pm
well thank you. thank you thank you. to cater to science museum is the only one specializing in evolution but a process to show you explained in an intelligible way museum started from private collection of alexander quotes the beginning of the twentieth century he believed the display should not only be academic but also interesting to visit. various interactive exhibitions. the founder of our museum alexander quotes paid a lot of attention to scientific research. people who study and explore nature in the wild can all men as exhibitions and explain and deliver such knowledge to the museum visitors in an easy to understand and interesting we.
