8:02 am
the state of relations between moscow and he also commented on getting food saying that it might be a little too spicy for some russian taste but he personally enjoyed it a lot and of course this kind of banter this kind of light hearted talk just goes to show exactly how comfortable the russian and the vietnamese are together and how much emphasis they place on their relationship. georgia has so far refused to confirm or deny reports tbilisi busted a spy network of twenty two people of literally gathering classified information for russia according to an anonymous source quoted by reuters the members of the secret network detained on friday are all georgians the country's interior ministry has promised to give a press conference on the incident but not before the end of next week russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov said moscow was not aware of any details as there are no diplomatic relations between the two countries observers say the lack of information from to b.b.c. is meant of the off guard terry and way the country is run. when someone is

arrested they're entitled to due process that means they can call a lawyer that family members can be contacted therefore arrests are announced and it never happens i can't tell you how bizarre ideas to hear a police spokesman say. i can neither confirm nor deny that arrests have taken place secret arrests are the hallmark of a police state. you know there is a new law before the georgian parliament which is called the freedom charter and it's something akin to the patriot act in the united states it will drastically increase the powers of the security service it passed its first meeting in the in the georgian part parliament recently and it is possible that someone was trying to whip up. a social mood to support that. well members of georgia's political opposition have been telling our team that the smallest link to
8:04 am
russia seems to be enough for to d.c. to bring a prosecution of this kind of charges russian links russian ties russian experience is always used in georgia's political propaganda i just know it's not empty in both these people but i know this stranger it's like you know to be some poll results. knowing your spin which may be there but if you deal with business you russia or you family in russia and you are with the judge it's great enough for georgia law enforcement off shows to make three million votes it. the georgian conservative party of neither speaking to us from tbilisi there we've got a lot more for you this hour here in ours here a quick look ahead at what's in store hiding behind a child's back when i was twenty and used as a human shield for gaza. but first russians are back in afghanistan helping the u.s.

and local forces stem 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're puzzled by his statement as everything had been agreed with the afghan interior ministry in advance the drugs raid is the first such operation by russian forces in afghanistan over twenty years after soviet troops left the country song the fact that moscow had to step in and give the us a push in the right direction came as a complete shock artie's. report. card this one verse one this one vis 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 ago only four out of the fourteen in this picture made it out alive and really was

8:07 am
to our u.s. and afghan partners the three sides found the operation for three months we used about seventy special forces units three landing helicopters and six opposing ones the whole operation lasted less than full round was good. 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 truck passing through its forges than any other country russia is convinced that the scan which must be confronted at its source 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 the militancy and drunks emanating from of ghana's stand are seen as a threat to its national security russia is likely to remain a force in the region even as the us 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 anime but as a modern day. exhibit of the trouble r.t. . on the way for you soon brazil looks for a new leader as the president with the breaking popularity balance out we hear from the communities being lifted out of poverty. iraqi lawmakers are demanding their government investigates allegations of war crimes this week comes a week after the online whistleblower wiki leaks released four hundred thousand secret u.s. documents on the war in iraq files detail 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
8:10 am
aimed at undermining the country's political stability but that's an overreaction and 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 the wiki leaks the soldiers responsible for giving these documents to them have 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 it's not likely as if there's many dates to choose from when it comes to releasing this in a sense this is u.s. military documents so 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 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 talking about the method of the message rather than
8:11 am
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 week as these was found guilty by the country's high court of persecuting opposition shiite islamic parties international human rights groups have condemned the decision to hang the seventy four year old and some experts to the sentence as an attempt to divert attention away from the weekly leaks revelations british m.p. jeremy corbyn says the priority should be investigating the allegations connected to the current regime. now that 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 from each era to
8:12 am
the user is there 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 cancel the death penalty abandon the whole idea of the death penalty and instead look at the issues of human rights and justice and look at the behavior of forces ever since the invasion took place i do not see the value in executing terek izzy's 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 thoughts there from british labor m.p. jeremy corbyn we're on top of that story online for you at r.t. dot com as well as more analysis of the fallout from the wiki leaks revelations also on the site reaching for the stars

to an extremely high crime rate went up by the activities of religious sex and i'm sorry to say this by all media including television which stories full of blood in russia around five thousand seven hundred miners are currently serving prison terms the majority are either from a one parent family or an often aged experts say about eighty percent of syria's juvenile crimes take place in the evening or night when children in theory are supposed to be looked after by their parents however in reality many children often end up on the streets searching for their room and detainment. and that's primarily alcohol which is fueling so much of today's youth crime this iteration among mine. is actually slowly improving the grim statistics among those who are on the beach to exploit so well many of these young boys hopefully will be able to survive crime

first place economically is in a terrible state because of the european single currency greece portugal spain all these countries their economies are going down the tubes the economies of countries like germany and france and the u.k. it would be a lot more healthy if they weren't burdened with regulation and in the case of france and germany with membership of the euro and of course they have to bear the tremendous burden of failing out countries like greece and of course by italy in portugal what we need is to get rid of the european single currency get rid of all the over regulation on business and allow economies to actually revive and become more healthy under proper free market economic conditions the wide things that go on at the moment is they can never inevitably only get worse. that was drug batton a member of the european parliament now two israeli soldiers are awaiting sentencing after using a palestinian child as a human shield during the onslaught on gaza almost two years ago it's the first such conviction sense television reinforced a ban on using civilians in combat against their will pose they are met the boy who
