first russians are back in afghanistan helping the u.s. and local forces stand the staggering flow of narcotics from the country on thursday operatives destroyed four drug producing labs and seized a ton of heroin afghan president hamid karzai denounced the operation saying it violates his country's sovereignty but russian officials say they are puzzled by this statement as everything had been agreed with the afghan interior ministry invents the drugs raid is the first such operation by russian forces in afghanistan over twenty years after soviet troops left the country and for some of the fact that moscow had to step in and give us a push in the right direction came as a complete shock parties to get to the grouch over towards. their preferred this one this one but this one this one. and this one lost his leg and he got a mush is showing his quote skilled in the soviet war in afghanistan two decades

a ton of heroin worth over two hundred million dollars. after we gave information to our u.s. and afghan partners the three sides plan the operation for three months we used about seventy special forces units three landing helicopters and six supporting ones the whole operation lasted less than four hours. but many experts say washington needed a push before it started to act it's unbelievable to me that it took russia to tell the united states where the drug labs were when we have a hundred thousand troops we've spent eighty billion dollars on intelligence we have one hundred thousand additional contractors so we had to know were crawling all over every inch of that country but it took you know two in fact to out the united states to force us and to embarrass us to cooperate with you to stop the drug trade which is in the interest of the entire world including the united states with more of the truth posturing through its full just than any other country
7:08 am
russia is convinced that the scan which must be confronted it is however those who know firsthand what fighting in afghanistan is like learning against being drawn into a full scale war to become. stars and of course there should be special operations carried out against drug cartels but again special unit should be in charge of this nineteen year old boys should not be recruited for the job every single operation should be planned in detail starting from the intelligence section of the operation itself and wrapping it all up it's easy to get trapped in this war and hard to get out of it some of them are women. as long as islamist militancy and drunks emanating from of ghana's stamp are seen as a threat to its national security rush is likely to remain a force in the region even as the us what's out an x. it strategy. faced with bigger war is sound less reliable neighbors said the region

the united states and nato appear willing to accept growing russian influence at this point they need all the help they can get at the gathering florrie objectivity in afghanistan is a sign russia is back and this time around not as the us cold war and of the but as a more to say ally exiting the trouble r t. live from the russian capital you're watching our team coming up in the program for you germany is divided this time along a different line of politics issue a stark warning to the country's immigrants all the details coming up in just a few minutes. plus as brazil votes for a new leader we hear from the communities being lifted out of poverty after a top commander helping out. iraqi lawmakers are demanding their government investigates allegations of war crimes to plea comes a week after the online whistleblower weiqi leaks released four hundred thousand secret u.s.
7:10 am
documents on the war in iraq the files do tell american forces handing prisoners over to iraqi interrogators despite overwhelming evidence of torture the data also sheds light on fifteen thousand killings over the past six years which were previously unaccounted for iraq's prime minister nouri al maliki says the revelations are aimed at undermining the country's political stability but that's an overreaction an unlikely motivation for the leak that's according to one leading expert on the country. i think that would be very doubtful to imagine that the wiki leaks and the soldiers responsible for giving these documents to them had the undermining of the iraqi government in mind when they chose this date let's bear in mind that there hasn't been an iraqi government for seven months so please if there's many dates to choose from when it comes to releasing this in a sense this is u.s. military documents really unlike any previous media story or anecdotal reports from iraq this is words from their own mouth which makes it very difficult for them to
7:11 am
deny it and they're not really doing that if you actually listen to what the pentagon and state department spokesman is saying what they talk about is the critical nature of the nature of the leaks and whether u.s. soldiers or informers or people working with the u.s. will be put in danger by them they're talking about the method of the message rather than the message itself now the message itself paints a very different picture of the iraq the americans have been telling us about the last seven years some fifteen thousand iraqi deaths have not been accounted for so the history of iraq is being written by these documents which are as i say from the americans miles themselves. well staying in iraq saddam hussein's former deputy was sentenced to death this week to recover these was found guilty by the country's high court of person of persecuting opposition shiite islamic parties international human rights groups have condemned the decision to hang the seventy four year old and some x. words you the sentence doesn't attempt to divert attention away from the wiki leaks revelations british m.p. jeremy corbyn says the priority should be investigating the allegations connected
7:12 am
to the current regime. the reason they're doing it now you are correct on this is to divert attention away from the wiki leaks issue because wiki leaks have exposed the torture that has gone on systematically and i think the death sentence pronounced for the terek of the user is to divert attention policy absolutely no point in this form of victor's justice being carried out will be nothing to reconcile people in iraq i think what we need is a real investigation into the behavior of the occupying forces and the iraqi army and its forces ever since the invasion of two thousand and three counsel the death penalty abandon the whole idea of the death penalty and instead look at the issues of human rights and justice look at the behavior of forces ever since the invasion took place i do not see the value in executing terakhir zs any more than executing anybody else it will not bring the dead back it will further brutalise what is already a very brutal situation the death penalty does not work. germy corbin there

families reluctant to integrate into a society that they failed is prejudiced against them i don't think that changing my personality the way i look the way our talk or my even my mother tongue would change. where would. you have an effect on the german culture projects like this local community center and aiding integration and teaching children the german language from an early age but with few bilingual arabic or take families likenesses sending their children to private school where they do not yet. despite the tough rhetoric from the top germany knowledge is that immigration is desirable for its economy migrants have to be willing to integrate we need people in all of the industrial countries because we have not so many kids anymore i have no no kids lots of germans have no kids so where should the kids come from

7:18 am
a far right party the hostile towards immigration and and sometimes they hostile towards immigrants is the group in general it's they were elected to parliament for the first time last month the fact that this is come to light since then does does it ties together a few feelings in swedish society. reinforces this worry the there's a general hostility towards immigrants but on the other hand you can't say that these shootings are a reaction to this weekend democrats being elected because of course they started a year ago long before this when democrats made it into parliament but it's a sign that perhaps of increasing disquiet among a small minority of swedes about immigration in sweden journalist james savage and mel mel talking to us here in r.t. let's take a look now at some other stories dominating world news this sunday more than twenty injured explosion in established manger square turkish police suspect it was a suicide bomb blast happened near

both the familia is responsible for a sixth of the reduction in poverty in brazil while it costs just a half percent of g.d.p. basically it's considered very cheap and efficient it's a model being transferred globally from mexico to new york city though by some accounts it still amounts to chump change. that if he reaches five dollars. not a solution for their lives but here you see how it has helped resiliency beyond their cinder block cities turned football playing fantasies. into goals these kids say of being doctors and teachers and we're here for the first time arguably in its history the walls separating rich from poor don't look so set in stone. and mr r. t. so paulo brazil skeletons policeman pirates and nurses dancing together only
