this is already coming to you live from moscow i'm marina joshie welcome to the program russia and the you should get rid of all barriers to commerce and build a massive common market stretching from lisbon to vladivostok that's the gist of a newspaper article written by russia's prime minister in a german newspaper well the report in outline his vision had a meeting with germany's chancellor many of the country's top industrialists now reports. the mean idea of the sort of goal is to boost cooperation between russia and the european union prime minister we're doing is calling for more joint projects both in business and in in science for more alliances to be built in many years like energy cormier king ship building or pharmaceutics and more all of this was outlined in an article in the. newspaper the newspaper which is all actually organizing the fourth economic forum here in berlin to give me an idea of all these
alliances and joint ventures is to build a unified economic society from one to avoid you are stuck and another key point of the audit trail is the abolishment of the visa regime between russia and the european union which it has called it one of the key steps and moves towards entering this new level of cooperation between the e.u. and russia and also another idea is to build a free trade zone between russia and the e.u. we're already heard comments from the german chancellor angela merkel who actually 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 answer the world trade organization she also said that the european union is in somewhat of a confusion after russia and kazakhstan because those union where's kazakhstan and belarus are actually still a very long way when it comes to w t o accession the heads of some of germany's
most successful and influential companies are taking part brainstorming looking for ways to move forward in the current economic situation in europe there's a very difficult situation in greece of 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. so the decisions here which the conclusions which will be made at this forum in berlin are a way to fact not only bruce grungy but europe as a whole in general you are going off reporting their next guys their economist and how stuart he is 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 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 at 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 actually 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 a punching itself in the face all the time. that was max kaiser economist host of
parties kaiser report there what you are to live from moscow still have a sour under a tap the nuclear shelters from another era. 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. by now where washington residents should run for cover in the event of a big blast. after five months in orbit the latest crew to return to earth from the international space station have landed safe and sound so use caps so we only current means of transport to and from the isis the liberty russian cosmonaut and two american astronauts to kazakhstan. has more from the city of cutting off the heart of 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 that 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 walker and douglas will or have spent about six months there each in their mission included a number of space walks and say different 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 technical physics and chemical chemistry tests for this particular team they must have been in and the elements of extra stress before their departure because they witnessed their previous esther's failing to undock from the international space station due to a technical difficulty with an automatic lock that connects the international space station and so you spacecraft that delayed their return back to earth by twenty
four hours nonetheless the previous team has also learned 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. to welcome three more in the middle of december the telling of a reporting their polls and say they were being persecuted for using their native language to spell polish street names and even surnames but authorities of illness say their actions fall well within the country's laws are 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 a thorough sound 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. i didn't feel as if i was doing anything wrong this was something the
local polish community needed decides 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 the slab and 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 word for word translation which in rages the authorities in of illness 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 advert to survey which says that the history of polish with when in relations have
a hard past but it must have been left behind when the two countries became members of the e.u. . lithuania was so keen on becoming part of the e.u. that they signed several documents on a 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 lithuanian authorities are rolling back on the obligations to brussels. so 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. or indeed the charter on national minorities give the poles in lithuania the right 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
lithuania 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 tell what will prevail the attitude to the events of the past or the wish to be part of the united european legislation alexi russia ski r.t. reporting from vilnius in 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 r.t. dot com right now. and the computer program developed in russia aims to protect children from the hidden dangers lurking in social networks we call it at home alone software to the tap. and brushes 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 archaic hideouts could play a vital role and as our ports people are unaware that hundreds are still scattered around the u.s. capitol ready to protect should the enemy strike. it was the first and foremost fear of a generation and. let's face it of hydrogen. 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 it would show that's why the federal government. 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. provides shelter inside you'll find canned food and water. last year 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 of 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 and has a memory of the area. and era 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 think it was an air raid siren sounds that hammered home the nation's greatest fear i think everybody in our young impressionable age had great concerns about this 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 the 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. releasing radiation that could cause sickness or death in the area where they 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 you 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 from bolton. 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 bombed with a nuclear bomb what do you know what to do no. no not at all just go as low as. you know what that sign means behind you i would assume that it's an actual chatter then 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 data and probably are relevant are
you worried that there could be a nuclear war tomorrow no why not just this is just not in the cold it's just going to happen and if it happened would you know what to do. probably like everybody else not really getting these are bright you with your head but has the threat of a nuclear strike really disappeared back then it was mutually assured destruction so no one fired missiles at each other today you know it's just a terrorist group that has a missile that's nothing to stop. up yourself in reasonable recognize the right way you might. think 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 will be 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 arrange the meetings while the cia oversaw the entire affair but the man claiming to be a high ranking militant turned out to be a shopkeeper from pakistan the scandal has left the u.s. led coalition red faced after a large sums of cash were handed over to the fraudster artie's 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 then led him in to
afghanistan across the border from pakistan and then they safely escorted him back thus completely avoiding any opportunity to resolve this mystery who is he is 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. and that was are to his military contributor colonel getting there now let's take a look at some other stories from around the world and some serious as the sound of artillery fire has been heard near one of its islands in the yellow sea but it's not clear words coming from the reports come as north korea warned that u.s. south korean naval drills were planned for this weekend are pushing the peninsula to the brink of war and a show of solidarity a u.s. military commander paid a visit to young people and island the site of a previous artillery attack from the north in which four people were killed earlier

past has been a sort of point of no return we saw it for greece we saw it for ireland and if it's happening to spain you know 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 many western investors are looking more to the bric countries and as they've been classified then brazil is certainly a very popular emerging market amongst western investors russia not so much interesting me 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 so this should shift the focus but of course there already has been a great deal of focus on the emerging markets already. know it's going to become
