the key nuclear arms called street between moscow and washington is given the go ahead by the russian parliament in the second of three readings russian lawmakers are saying the new strategic arms reduction treaty will be rectified before the end of the month join us for the details later in the program. controversy despite accepting part of the blame poland says it will launch its own probe into staples presidential plane crash claiming the official report news question dissolves. and legal gallops no extradition treaty between washington and bull means many afghans when shipped to the u.s. to stand trial on terrorism charges and breach of international.
very warm welcome to you this is the line from moscow i'm alice had it the pivotal nuclear arms reduction power between moscow and washington has passed another significant milestone on its way to becoming reality after russian lawmakers approved it in the second of three readings the treaties signed between presidents but that of last year has already been ratified by the u.s. senate it not only it's a final say from the russian parliament from when there is only another reports. this is the biggest treaty over it's going signed in the past twenty years one to the world's biggest nuclear powers will be significantly reducing the number of warheads thirty nuclear arms by a third and delivery vehicles by almost half and of course it's also very important step and warming relations within russia and the united states an exam an example for other nuclear powers to fall this example now back in april when the treaty was
signed washing lawmakers helps that they were ready to rectify it in the form that it was right away but the unites united states senate was not that unanimous in its decision barack obama's opposition in the senate wanted to sink down the treaty to make amendments to it and even though they failed to do so when vets to fight the t.t. back in to set late december two thousand and ten they attached a resolution to it that is worse eleven pages worth of remarks to the treaty and now more makers counteract those remarks the resolution by the u.s. senate suggests that the treaty should not so restrict nato or the united states from deploying its anti-missile defense shield to europe however this is something that russia opposed to from the start russia always wanted to go with signing the streets you connect offensive and defensive nuclear weapons and to make sure that
they too or the u.s. do not proceed with their plans of deploying a.m.d. to here without russia's participation so the resolution by the russian lawmakers suggests that in case after rectifying the treaty the u.s. proceeds with the plan that russia will be able to pull out of the treaty i believe . on the american side of the they will proceed the strategic north regional board strategic missile defense system small not the current president not the current government but probably the net. president the next government reach has a completely different strategy on this issue and in case it happens yes of the treaty may be damaged and yes there may be conditions for russia to to pull out of the street today in the second reading the documents were approved by the warehouse over the parliament the last reading will take place on the twenty fifth of january
and after that it will be given to the opera house of the parliament for the signing. now poland has a good knowledge partly to blame for last april's plane crash in southeastern russia which killed president lech kaczynski and members of the country's political elite but walsall says the interstate aviation committee report is incomplete in now intends to carry out its own investigation and hopes to reach a joint conclusion with moscow or whedon's prime minister donald tusk said he wishes the fallout from the tragedy won't damage his country's relations with russia if issue report concluded pilot error bad weather and pressure to land from passengers were the main causes of the accident but poland claims russian air traffic controllers should have banned the plane from landing chris yates is an aviation expert says the official investigation has done everything expected of us . there is nothing more to be said quite frankly i think they are
the committee that did this investigation of. job and. they found what they found which is that the primary blame should be one of the truth. from what you know there is more important line in the transcript of the conversations between pilot and ground during the. final approach of the aircraft into the airport and that is that there is no condition for landing at this airport and quite frankly with that sort of information being given to the pilots the pilot should then have made the judgment to follow traffic instruction and transfer to another airport nearby where better visibility better conditions for landing might well have persisted. well
a former paralysed air force pilot believes the polish people are coming to the wrong place at the pal the tragic crash since then this is the public of no knowledge of aviation many polish people are commenting wrongly on the accident because generally. i believe polish people do not know much about the vision of vision is a very complicated matter the simple people don't know march fly and they don't interested in aviation so sometimes it's easy for them to do overly. long conclusions in my opinion it is. the failure of. pilots very much i would say. not the pleasure. of military pilots but the pilot's mistakes were the main reason of the accident
when you don't have enough experience because flying experience it's one thing and the life experience like you are thirty five years old you don't have much life experience you will still be shoes you want to carry on the task because the president is. expecting you there and you want to show him that you are able to lead. you know with. the this our back from the start as three and we're just a living with their feet firmly planted on the ground we get a chance to ask them all about life in orbit and. behold the giant wall the mammoth from trans-am is in your group and coming up on our team from scientific discovery to artistic symbol of culture will target all about. that isn't seized from the home country shipped to america
a lot up on charges of terrorism are now finding themselves standing trial in u.s. courts but with no official extradition treaty in place it could be america is breaking international law clear reports. he's the hero of the streets of kabul and also the symbol of american injustice mohammad jawad was only twelve when he was captured and locked inside guantanamo seven years later he was found innocent and freed but the damage had been done and he has a fear that african society. he cannot talk with. anybody you want to sleep in at all all the time. you want to be a long korean was one of the few journalists to speak with jawad but now jawad lawyers say he's being threatened don't talk to journalists or will send you back but afghan authorities say they've had enough of american intimidation or more that
by fear are new government in the doctrine of the constitution six years ago it was acceptable that american troops would send afghans to a one termer but to date no wait but according to the law it should have always been no way because there's never been an extradition treaty between afghanistan and the states not then and not now the basic thing when we speak about extradition is that there is a faith between two countries about the legal system it's very difficult for me to see that there is a meeting between the american legal system and the afghan legal system and why should they be argues the recon when the afghan justice system is so corrupt the new constitution was adopted in general two thousand and four and while it allows kabul to enter into extradition treaties with other countries until today no such pact exists between afghanistan and the united states we love the american in afghan courts are different in also afghans are most ones who won't support afghans
being tried and prosecuted by the united states. the implications are far reaching i guess afghanistan would be an easier country for someone who has committed a crime or committed a crime that the united states wants to prosecute them for that to be without fear of being brought back to the united states for that issue but afghans argue justice is still being served. during the last nine years we've had many cases with the united states where they ask for people and we agree we've sent back many afghans accused of drug smuggling to face charges in the states. since two thousand and one there were new crimes in afghanistan drugs and terrorism to counter these kinds of problems you have got government needed and wanted to cooperate with the international community but will that need and want to translate into action every time because for as long as no extradition treaty exists they really can be no
guarantee of justice between both countries. r.t. kabul. well the united states has made its mission to promote democracy in countries billions of dollars flowing to those who for washington side of the fence but it's not only the supporters who get funded for reports. when it comes to u.s. foreign policy in the developing world backing one side apparently isn't enough from the middle east to latin america to eastern europe the u.s. government has made it a policy to fund the regime and the opposition and when it publicly can't it turns to a network of government funded n.g.o.s for help i think the strategies of funding the right wing but also funding the resistance movements in order to co-opt them go hand in hand and they have for quite a long time. following the cuban revolution the kennedy administration funneled money into the project camelot
a controversial research project right counterinsurgency manuals people's revolutionary movements in latin america in order to co-opt them. the endeavor was abandoned after students in chile found out about it shortly before the nine hundred seventy three chilean coup. recently florida international university teamed up with the u.s. military southern command to write similar reports on what it calls strategic culture but critics like adrian finighan say self is returning to camelot they're trying to figure out how to manipulate the different populations based on different cultural elements to prevent rebellions for prevent any sort of you know what we really can see is in many cases democratic manifestations. democratic opposition to the u.s. backed mubarak regime in egypt is actively courted by u.s. funded n.g.o.s like freedom house the international republican institute and the
national endowment for democracy any d. also founded in finance the electoral monitoring group the egyptian democratic academy and. it's two story cairo office the group then recruited formerly militant activists like bottom fifty two. democracies before sobering to i totally believe the worst and democracy based on international issues. domestic issues. that the obama administration spends twenty million dollars annually on what it calls democracy promotion and good governance programs in egypt and sixty five times that amount in impressive one point three billion dollars in military aid five the understand the american approach to very clear american everybody. there are some more things that are going to strangers. who are. traitors to the us continues to send millions of dollars in aid and military assistance to the government in honduras while a network of u.s.
government funded n.g.o.s actively pushes to finance the opposition with. lawyer elect earlier there's no oppose the two thousand and nine military coup that ousted hundreds his democratically elected president he sees the current government as an extension of the coup and what he calls master organizations as trying to portray find jurors today as democratic. it's not a democracy when a president is elected by only twenty five percent of the voters in the country seventy five percent of the population is part of the popular resistance and there are more than five hundred thousand people in the streets micro-targeting pine says that while working as a professor at the american university in cairo freedom house tried to co-opt your students in a bid to silence them on certain issues like egyptian complicity in human rights violations in gaza once people accept this money they accept the conditions that go along with them and those conditions force them to stop talking about the political the underlying political causes of the violation. but while grant's of
a thousand dollars can go a long way in poor countries like egypt the money is hardly without strings attached. many of these u.s. government funded and you know them financing human rights work around the world without ever recognizing the underlying political military and economic causes human rights violations many of the result of america pursuing its own interests abroad but when these organizations pay big popular movements lose out at the cost a real human rights change around the world in port arthur washington d.c. . check out some other international stories this hour and we're still has her ring the victims of severe flooding that has left more than five hundred people dead these to the country rescue workers say that the death toll is likely to rise as they're still struggling to reach remote areas cut off by mudslides thousands of been left homeless what has become the country's worst disaster in decades. to.

three of them here with me your chicken shannon shannon walker and douglas wheelock have all spent six months in space conducting experiments and doing maintenance to the space station and when they arrived here today they laid some flowers at the statue of eureka daryn as it is fifty years since he was the first man in space so all three of them first of all you've been up there for six months what would you say you've achieved in the time in csma not six months just a little less than two weeks one of the just going to do it easier for america for . a base in spades unfortunately for. maybe a much greater if you're going to go. on spring in the us versus me since i was six months in space posts like just one day but they were lots of challenging and interesting tasks during that time but one of the first was
a problem with docking with the new russian module with and we had to work to repair it for one and a half hours before we could actually dock with the i assess the crew showed firmness uncomfortable and acted like a real professionals also during one of the space walks some equipment broke the work to repair it was really tough and one should praise the courage and professionalism of all the six crew members that were in space at the time that we carried out lots of experiments and we're satisfied with the work being done. with . when he returned here to tell us showered with gifts and flowers how do you rate the response you've received as it were back here on earth i think. quite overwhelming i mean it was a wonderful response. people star said so. yes ticking kind of way i think the best part about today was the schoolchildren that are here because what we do is for the future and they're. you know they're part of our future so in their
enthusiasm it's everything. just roughly a bit more of. the u.s. congresswoman recently shot in early starting that gabrielle giffords was married to one of your fellow cosmonauts mark kelly and his brothers on the international space station as we speak how would you have a comment about that well look of course we feel especially close to giffords because she is part of our nasa family as well and it is a tragedy although we've heard something encouraging words about her recovery coming out of arizona but for the lives that were lost really in senseless violence i believe it's you know the what happened in a small shopping center in southeastern arizona it really affects us all of course having spent some time with scott onboard the space station his twin brother mark is married to cover rio will always feel especially close to that family and that connection so we're praying for her and we're going to be hoping for the best
outcome and so my all our only message would be let's maybe we think about peaceful discourse rather than a solution of things through violence because that's never a way to solve many thanks to all of you feel time and from everyone here at this space and welcome back to earth thank you for your. lot of all the stories available on our website. for you this is the takes a few minutes left here old coalition government has collapsed this. protest for what they saw one happy about find out. sure is considering abolishing daylight saving time to save more daylight for all the details do had. long been fascinated with carrying out
a new study more these experiments have only been possible. when ninety percent of remains are found. as a big trait that may get in the jury business than even known for. these artists are hard work creating masterpieces from one of the earth's most unique substances . it has been a long tradition in ukraine to make things. we know that from history in ancient times these things were taken by ships to russia and other countries so since we have these rich resources it is only natural that we should make things from this material. the use of ivory is a controversial issue as it has been linked to savage hunting techniques when dealing elephant populations these practices have led to an international ban on the ivory trade but the people of your couture have found a loophole of sorts leading them to say mammoth ivory is perfectly acceptable. is
force which cannot be restored been dead for ten thousand years most of the fossils are in northern reaching us that's where the material is delivered from as far as we know a lot of these fossils we don't got but we are the only ones doing it legally because it is so scarce each year large expeditions are sent up north when there is a break in. whether to search for newly exposed tusks. during small beaches surface and that's where we dig and this is hold labor you have to work with his shovel and he catches you can't always tell a task from a tree you think it's a tree because he knows that it was a special stick and realized. the biggest sixty killers but they can be as big as one hundred and twenty or even one hundred and thirty kilos the wall did indeed roam the entire planet but ninety percent of the artifacts have been found right here and that's because of the extreme weather conditions found here along
scientists to find their bodies largely intact. i took part in almost all the recent excavation projects i was the project leader my first big expedition was to the trans polar reaches of the river very long we excavated an almost intact mammoth leg and a body of a wolverine when you're digging and suddenly see some flash or head you get very excited if you found a huge big mammoth in some instances the giant animals are preserved so well the meat itself is still edible. so the man with meat preserves its taste back in one thousand nine hundred seventy when we dug out of memory leg we gave some pieces to dogs and they ate them of course both the taste and smell of the mammoth meat a quite foul and it's not advisable to eat it but there are some people who claim the eighty's and there were even pitches in some newspapers. so you shouldn't expect to find mammoth meat on a menu any time soon the wildly popular giant animal is still contributing to the
society today from artistic creation to scientific research on the legend of the mammoth lives on in your cute sean thomas our team. got a presence on the way now it's me through altricial break. welcome to the program you're watching business global oil demand is increasing at almost twice the pace of supply according to the u.s. energy department this is led to predictions that oil may reach peaks not seen since two thousand and eight west texas blend is currently trading at around ninety one dollars a barrel harry chilling derian from b.m.p.
party boss says the fundamental obstacles to a prolonged oil rally. were looking for a new trading range for w.t.r. at least a level shift up from last year in the loose eighty to ninety area and i know this is being tested right now but we see a number of fundamental obstacles before all prices could rally the way they did in two thousand and eight all right now what kind of oil prices are you expecting at the end of the year. where we're looking to average closer to ninety five dollars again we have to get over some obstacles as i was saying earlier we're looking at relatively elevated inventories in the o.e.c.d. countries we're looking at opec that has fair production capacity of six million barrels per day and of course we're looking at supply that's relatively decent heading into two thousand and eleven we'll see a lot of production coming out of russia colombia china and more importantly brazil so these are factors that we need to contend with before we could rise the way we did in two thousand and eight when spare production capacity was virtually nil
inventories were extremely low and the refining system didn't have the ability to refine what opec could produce then. the best performing arts a class last year was precious metals and the best among those was palladium but analysts believe this rally is not yet exhausted despite doubling in price in twenty term forecast from japan's standard bank and credit suisse highlights continuing demand from the auto industry as car sales in china gain momentum metal was also being sought as an investor a safe haven and the european debt concerns and the u.s. printing money the lady is currently trading at around eight hundred dollars an ounce just off a ten year high deutsche bank predicts that price could almost double by the end of twenty twelve. sort of the markets now wall street is trading flat to positive this hour the biggest jump in u.s. industrial production and rising retail sales is being offset by high inflation and
news that china is raising bank reserve requirements to try to cool down its economy. in europe stocks are mixed at this hour they're recovering the gains that we've seen throughout the whole session miners were largely low on we could commodity prices they are m. holdings is gaining five point three percent this hour of the of pete results from intel on thursday. look at the closing figures for russia now in the markets or slight correction in friday's trade over the week the my six games three point four percent the r.t.s. around five percent making russia the best performing emerging markets of the year to date. look at some of the stocks now paul is gold was among losers down two point four percent on the my six as precious metal futures fell for the first time this week seoul is however outperformed the markets up two percent on reports that the carmaker increased retail sales by thirty seven percent last year energy majors were trading in the red with gazprom down point seven five percent. russian stock
markets came out strong in their first week of trade as we mentioned after the prolonged new year holidays especially with one of its traditional drivers while at a two year high sales trade john hides it from citibank explains. two the stocks that were the main drivers i would say this week were luke oil and ross taft these stocks and a lot of the large energy names in two thousand and ten lagged the market in general this week both of those stocks traded above key resistance levels and were able to hold those levels we saw quite a bit of the matter that one of the reasons why the russian market did so well this first week commodities are generally very strong crude oil held above the ninety dollars level for a deputy i seen brant closing in on one hundred dollars level once again so as i was a very supportive for the russian market also metals were quite strong so we have time for now we'll be back in one hour's time the headlines are next in.
