a ban on selling sex in spanish newspapers that's designed to protect women but is leaving prostitutes seeing red. in business despite only two days of training after a long new holiday from the russian stock market outperforming rival emerging markets or in twenty minutes. around the clock around the world this is r.t. life here in moscow. prime minister has cut short his holiday following the public release of the report on the plane crash which killed the country's president the interstate aviation committee's findings blamed inexperienced crew members bad weather and pressure from passengers but polish politicians want russian air traffic controllers to share the blame. has more on the reaction. this is the
biggest news story in poland today of course every single news channel devoting a lot of coverage to the story to the reaction of course reaction to the report released by the committee has of course mixed some are saying that it is a truthful report and a necessary all be painful steps in relations between moscow and warsaw that it is a necessary step that will allow the two sides to close this tragic and painful chapter of their shared past and hopeful and move on others of course including the former polish president lech kaczynski his brother are saying that the report is nothing but a joke that it is presenting the polish side with falsified data many here and poland do agree this report does accurately reflect the causes and the consequences and the reasons behind the tragic plane crash on april tenth.
we all agreed that these reports exists this is a step closer to the next stage finding the circumstances that led to the tragedy. i must admit that the russians are right again i don't want to agree with the russians but this is the truth of course we can look for guilt and blame someone else all this report of course was not only awaited in russia and in poland but also within the international community everybody of course waiting to see what the special committee would list as the causes for that tragic plane crash and admittedly a lot of the experts within the international community do seem to agree with the committee's findings some of them even going as far as to say that whatever of the circumstances be it tough weather conditions difficult airplanes a little preparation basically the bottom line according to some is the. i like it
is his responsibility that plane and people on board are the pilots responsibility and therefore whatever happens to those passengers and the plane itself flies on the shoulders of the pilot there is no argument about who is in charge when the situation arises in the pilot. and the facts speak for themselves but we should not go chasing after people to blame because they. don't like the result and we've had numerous examples in the past of people. i have got to get into a certain place have got to land in a certain place that's happened in america many many times with business from the big bosses on board and the pilot feels that he's got to get the boss to the next important place it is understandable of course that many are not satisfied with the report specifically as it is a very emotional subject for most polish people therefore attempting to find other
reasons and factors to blame than perhaps the pilots it is of course a somewhat. darker factor of course blaming the dead for some for such a horrific tragedy but as my colleague and i said now in our reports the understanding of such a tragedy and finding out exactly who is to blame and what has happened is never quite as straightforward as it might appear for the first time the last seconds are heard before polish president lech kaczynski is plane crashed near smile now on securing on one priority.
the crew ignored warnings from the aircraft automated system to pull up and advise from air traffic controllers to land at an alternate airport in experiencing flying matter whether the interstate aviation committee high minded when they found to be the main causes behind the tragedy in their final. nurse let my failure to make a timely decision to land at the reserve airports based on multiple recommendations about weather conditions at smolensk airport descending lower than the seas minimum heights necessary to me. a second language in a town failure to react properly to automatic amounts those are the reasons which led to the tragic crash of the aircraft into the land and the death of those on board. the findings also claimed passenger pressure on the crew to land as soon as possible played a vital role in the incident here is evidence the crew was afraid of disappointing someone if they didn't land. it's
not clear whether the navigator was referring to the polish president or the commander in chief of the air force who was in the cockpit and later alcohol found in his blind poland was not satisfied with the draft report compiled by the i.a.c. which found pilot error was to blame and insists various factors at play cause the accident but aviation experts have confidence in the findings my experience with the russian investigators has been very good they're very high quality organization that i believe that it was the investigation was generally carried out in accordance with the international civil aviation organization an expert team which is the international standard for accident investigation who did russia have a turbulent history and it was hoped politics when the investigation i think what the what the polish government wants to be able to present to the polish people is
that this was not purely the fault of the polish crew and that russia take some blame for it as well i don't think this is very much to do with the facts i think it's all to do with politics the case is far from closed as the next chapter to find those accountable for the tragedy is zero point. the committee concluded that no single person can be blamed for the accident but now that the final investigation report has been delivered a criminal investigation can be launched and perhaps more law. it sat on the crash that killed the polish president his wife and most of the country's political elite and he's now a r.t. moscow. still on the way this hour for you here in r.t. more harm than good find out how a charitable organization is set up to fight corruption is being accused of causing instability and acting in its own self interests. but first ravaged by
an earthquake that claimed over two hundred thousand lives a year ago haiti is still gripped by the aftereffects widespread homelessness cholera outbreak of brought the island to its knees and now washington has added insult to injury hundreds of patients will soon be deported from the u.s. to face a grim future back home. has this report. see a lot so for most american women can relate to janay montra built locals a working wife and busy mother home with the kids while dad is at work we lay back we work hard so we can provide the best for our children but are also those crime our family or family that care what we make. for the future if the u.s. government gets its way. in just cya janaya and tone will become forever fatherless. engine a will enter the pool of single us mothers struggling to make ends meet after all the output of the home of the cell or maybe it only money
with the hope that the bills. at any moment jeanne montra bill the breadwinner and twenty five year u.s. resident can be torn away from his family. today the father of four works as a church custodian in manhattan tomorrow the haitian immigrant can be deported back . back to the poorest country in the western hemisphere rocked by an earthquake and deepening humanitarian crisis. going to war to port. you know. you know. this is not a good. community. and i was more for. last year's seven point zero earthquake killed nearly three hundred thousand haitians and left more than one million homeless a tragedy so grave the u.s.
issued an immediate suspension on deportations for hidden immigrants yet last month the obama administration quietly lifted the ban resuming deportations for those with criminal convictions even those like jean montoursville who paid his debt to society serving eleven years behind bars for selling drugs in the eighty's he was released from prison in two thousand. and. four. used to almost. you know. you know. the very same day u.s. officials resumed deportations of haitian immigrants the state department issued a warning against non-essential travel to haiti alerting americans of continued high crime limited police presence lot of medical care and a cholera outbreak. an epidemic so bad the united nations has made
a one hundred seventy four million dollar appeal to fight the outbreak it's not good it is now spread all the way across the country because as you know color is a contagious disease it's affected over one hundred thousand people so far. and over twenty five hundred people have perished from the disease. according to attorney sunita patel the deportations are a violation of the conventions against torture and the un declaration of human rights sending someone back to a situation where they are likely to die or are faced a situation where they are. facing the possibility of death is potentially a violation of our obligations under international law yet according to immigrations and customs enforcement up to seven hundred haitians with criminal records will be
sent back this year. to a nation wracked by violence food shortages and disease a prospect that brings a feeling of fear to this american family a family broken up not by divorce but by their own government. so it's. really nice to take a look at that consideration in the separation of family. because we believe children follow us and the lives of fathers like jean are you believe in danger if or when his home becomes haiti. r.t. new york. and while thousands of non governmental organizations have been set up to combat the problems in haiti some are said to be cashing in on the country's misfortune the un and is home to more and geos per capita than any other country in the world and as for now reports many washington based groups operating in poor
