eleven am in the russian capital you're watching our team in the arena joshie welcome to the program russia and the e.u. should get rid of all barriers to commerce and become a free trade zone worth trillions of dollars and that's the gist of a newspaper article written by russia's prime minister and a german newspaper put in outline his vision ahead of a meeting with germany's chancellor and many of its top industrialists well you know across lived to have a corresponding corpus going off was following put in space and there. were a morning to you now what are the key points inputs article what exactly is he proposing. good morning and the mean idea of the sort of go to cooperation between russia and the european union prime minister why do you oppose him he's calling for more joint projects both in business and in in science for more alliances to be built in main issues like energy cormier ship building pharmaceutics and more and. all of this was outlined in an article as you said
which was published in the. newspaper the newspaper which is all actually organizing the fourth economic forum here in berlin and. says that it's mean basically i mean all these alliances and joint ventures to build a unified economic society from was to avoid you are still and another key point of the article is the abolishment of the regime between russia and the european union which has called it one of the key steps. towards entering this new level of cooperation between you and russia and also another idea is to build a free trade zone between russia and the world you heard comments from german chancellor angela merkel who supported the idea of this free trade zone between russia and the e.u. but it has actually also said. that russia first has to enter the world trade
organization she also said that the european union is in somewhat of a confusion after russia bellows and kazakhstan formed the tree form the costumes union where's kazakhstan and those are actually still a very long wait when it comes to w t o accession so this article definitely gives some food for thought some very important issues to be discussed here in berlin and we'll just have to see how the discussions go. now you are also now there like my position is to hold talks with angela merkel and some of germany's top business leaders so what other issues will be discussed aside from his proposals for the e.u. obviously. well this is a very important forum because the heads of some of germany's most successful and influential companies are taking port brainstorming looking for ways to move forward in the current economic situation in europe i'm talking about big companies
like door should being siemens b.m.w. group walks wagon and more and as the skies over the european economy continue to darken since there's a very difficult situation in greece or oil and portugal we're now getting we've towards belgium and spain maybe next and when it comes to germany it's actually showing some really impressive economic growth at the moment the german government has previously said that the number of unemployed people in the country is now reduced from five to three million and they are seeing that it can actually drop altogether in the future and that is already the picture of the imports of the country so the decisions here which the conclusions which will be made at this forum in berlin are a way to threaten not only this country but europe as a whole in general. thanks very much indeed for bringing us the latest from berlin
. watching live from moscow and max kaiser economist and host of artie's kaiser report believes germany is ready to emerge as the world's new superpower. the crisis is only adding to germany's ability to ultimately break away from the euro and to compete head to head with china for competition in terms of being the twenty first century global superpower it will be germany and china the us has gone the u.k. is long gone continental europe is outside of germany doesn't produce anything so you've got a reconstituted germany with their own central bank again their own currency and i predict the rise of germany again this is something that after world war two. was attempted to be outlawed but germany is back and of course germany has excellent relations with russia the russian leadership speaks german the german leadership speaks russian so there's
a lot of talk there and the tonic genie is being let out of the bottle i don't think america is prepared for a germany because being a was a superpower again and yet as a result of this crisis that america helped engineer there you have it america is punching itself in the face all the time. i was mass kaiser economist and host of our report there well still have the sour under attack the nuclear shelters from and now their era. in that you'll find canned food and water to last you at least two weeks you'll also find a flashlight with batteries and medical equipment to assist your fellow citizens. find out where washington residents should run for cover in the event of a blast. and the latest crew to return to earth from the international space station have landed safe and sound an effort five months in orbit the soyuz capsule delivered a russian cosmonaut and to american astronauts two kinds of stone. has more from
the city of cut off the heart of the russian space program. so you see i mean nineteen safely landed in took the spacecraft about three hours to travel all the way from the international space station back to earth and now the team of three cosmonauts is feeling well and safe the mission is now complete and the crew feels good and is satisfied with the way it went landing. i congratulate everyone who contributed to the success of this project russian veteran cosmonauts for you the chief has all together spent a year in space and his colleagues from nasa sean and douglas will or have spent about six months there each in their mission included a number of space walks and scientific experiments and they in fact brought a container a refrigerator with the result of one hundred twenty scientific experience they conducted during their mission including by
a technical physics and chemical chemistry tests for this particular team there must have been him and the elements of extra stress before their departure because they witnessed their previous testers failing to undock from the international space station due to a technical difficulty with an automatic lock that connects the international space station and are so used base graph that delayed their return back to earth by twenty four hours nonetheless the previous team has also won that safely but this team seemed to be rather optimistic about their return they even had a special thanksgiving dinner before they started getting ready to flying back to earth right now three more cosmonauts remain at the international space station and they're welcome there were waiting to welcome three more in the middle of december but i know if you're reporting there are other stories of poles and that's when you say they are being persecuted for using their native language to spell polish street names and even surnames but authorities in villages say their actions falwell was in the country's laws are just like your reports. shop owner decided
to make life easier for the poles living in rural lithuania should put signs in both leith when ian and polish languages in her store but then authorities said she would be fined two hundred euro for violating the state language law according to it all signs in the country must be strictly and lithuanian and even with another i didn't feel as if i was doing anything wrong this was something the local polish community needed besides i had definitional state language on these signs as well this is a violation of human rights i was told i could have signs in english german or french but not in polish. almost a quarter of a million ethnic poles live in lithuania for centuries warsaw ruled this land so nowadays in some villages the polish amounts to over eighty percent of the population another sticking point is the street names and villages where the polish community lives it is not the fact that polls use both languages but that they use
the word for word translation which in rage is the authorities. secretary of the polish council in the twenty s. says that they cannot even spell their names right all id cards and passports of ethnic poles must be written in the state language. of each says that the history of polish with when your relations have a heart cost but it must have been left behind when the two countries became members of the e.u. . let's there were any it was so keen on becoming part of the e.u. that they signed several documents on the session one of those was the european chancel national minorities it says that we can easily use our native language but now for some reason the lithuania authorities are rolling back all the obligations to brussels. we turn to the body which oversees the use of language for on says it says no obligation was violated and that in fact vilnius had every right to
persecute. the use of polish. indeed the charge on national minorities gives the poles in lithuania the rights to use their language but at the same time the document says the law of the country prevails over the chargers' clauses and according to the law in lithuania we have every right to find them for using their language on signs. some poles living in with when you suggest that this is vilnius is revenge for centuries of polish occupation authorities on the other hand refute such claims and say that a decision on the use of polish is being discussed within the country sparling meant but nobody can say what will prevail the attitude to the events of the boss or the wish to be part of the united european legislation alexi russia. reporting from vilnius lithuania. and more on that story and plenty of others on our website where you can also have your say on anything we're covering here's a quick taste of what's waiting at home right now. and you computer program
developed in russia aims to protect children from the hidden dangers lurking in social networks we put home alone software to the test. and russia's industry giants propose extending the work week to sixty hours but doctors warn this will kill employees literally all the details on our website r.t. dot com. for many americans fallout shelters are no more than remnants of cold war history but some say if atomic weapons fall into the wrong hands these are. could play a role as our reports people are unaware that hundreds are still scattered around the u.s. capitol ready to protect the enemy strike. it
was the first and foremost fear of a generation. let's face it of hydrogen bomb the greatest danger our nation has the american way of life was under attack and everyone had to have a plan of action the key to survival is that it would show that's why the federal government has a nationwide program. in the event of a nuclear strike the government had thousands of fallout shelters ready and stocked to protect the american people factory. apartment house and. provide shelter inside you'll find canned food and water to last you at least two weeks you'll also find a flashlight with batteries and medical equipment to assist your fellow citizens.
in the nation's capital thousands of shelters existed but now only a few hundred of them are still noticeable there are about a thousand shelters originally but today all the interior shelters are mostly here adam irish is a history buff who has made it his mission to find the shelters today we're trying to preserve the signs as a memory of the area there are an area that bill brown remembers very well i was a junior high school student here from fall of one nine hundred sixty two and told the spring of one nine hundred sixty five the cold war was well underway many children here i'm sure like myself in bed at night would hear like a fire and siren and think it was an air raid siren sounds that hammered home the nation's greatest fear and i think everybody in our young impressionable age had great concerns about this is you know it caused a lot of paranoia. but if washington was ever attacked a room full of beans and cots wasn't going to do much for the residents of this.
city it is important to know that these shelters are only meant to protect people against fallout not the blast itself fall is the term for radioactive particles that fills the air in the aftermath of a nuclear explosion billions of them would fall from the sky to we're releasing radiation that could cause sickness or death in the area where they will follow wasn't a real threat because the city would have been first on the list but despite the pointless preparations people like brown felt it was better to do something than nothing we were just doing what we were told to do you know and the idea that you know the fly ash was the important thing in the shock wave would follow we wanted to be away from where would you be when the atomic bombs fall. but today you can secure your family's future by reserving a spot in a state of the underground fold from baltic what was the nation's greatest fear and the protection against it have become a distant memory only to be poked fun at in video games and movies if washington
was with a nuclear bomb would you know what to do no. no not at all just go as low as. so do you know what that sign means behind you i would assume that it's an actual charter then that if there was some kind of nuclear attack you could hide there but i've never noticed it before so i would assume it's also dated and probably are you worried that there could be a nuclear war tomorrow. why not just this is just not in the cone. and if it happened would you know what to do. probably like everybody else you get a knees and pray who will go ahead but has the threat of a nuclear strike really disappeared back then it was mutually assured destruction and no one fired missiles at each other today you know it's just a terrorist group that has a missile it's nothing to stop. recognized. by. right. but while people might still face
a nuclear threat with no specific enemy many believe it's pointless to prepare for preassure either r. t. washington d.c. . afghan officials are blaming nato for setting up make believe peace talks with a man posing as a top taliban leader president hamid karzai even held to go she was the imposter before his true identity was revealed the scam began over six months ago when afghan officials were approached by supposed taliban agents offering peace talks british intelligence reportedly arranged the meetings while the cia oversaw the entire affair but the man claiming to be a high ranking militant turn out to be a shopkeeper from pakistan scandal has left the u.s. led coalition red face after a large sums of cash were handed over to the fraudster his military contributor says nato needs to learn to do its homework. how come the artist
managed to outfox and outsmart the whole western intelligence community it was a desperate political move that prompted the us military leadership in afghanistan to get involved in such air adventure that resulted in a total embarrassment for the central intelligence agency they led him in to afghanistan across the border from pakistan and then they say for escorted him back thus completely avoiding any opportunity to resolve this mystery. who is he's working for whatever you try to swap professionals whether in military or intelligence for politically convenient personalities it will backfire sooner or later but it will that was our military contributor colonel of getting there. let's now take a look at some other stories from around the world in south korea says the sound of
artillery fire has been heard near a one of its islands in the yellow sea but it's not clear where it's coming from the reports come as north korea warned that u.s. south korean naval drills planned for this week over an arm of the peninsula to the brink of war and show of solidarity a u.s. military commander paid a visit to pyongyang on the side of a previous artillery attack from the north in which four people were killed earlier this week. police in rio de janeiro say they have gained control of a shanty town that had been taken over by violent drug gangs five days of clashes saw at least thirty people killed most of the fatalities were suspected drug dealers although a fourteen year old girl at a sixty two year old woman also die drug traffickers have regrouped and after being expelled from other shanty towns in the city. is set to mark two years since gunmen launched a series of attacks around the indian city killing one hundred sixty six people the

a sort of point of no return receipt for greece we saw it for ireland and it's happening to spain spain is one of the biggest economies in europe so that's a serious concern the merging markets have been attractive for some time now and of course they are very much the driving force behind global growth but certainly western investors are looking more to the bric countries is as they've been classified in brazil is certainly a very popular emerging market amongst western versus russia not so much interesting the but there's a lot of talk now that you know russia is getting a little bit of attention even seen a relatively undervalued market when you compare it to the likes of brazil which has been so popular and so this should shift the focus but of course there are already has been a great deal of focus on the emerging markets already. brought through as the engine says it is gearing up to become
