markets have to be opened after an extended weekend and in the first few minutes of tuesday's trading well both indices have a raised friday's cadence and we can see that the r.t.s. is now losing about one percent more market analysis in business and about that it's. around the world and around the clock this is out it was a day of remembrance that turned violent western ukraine nationalists attacked veterans and their relatives on victory day people wearing sent george ribbons to commemorate world war two had been ripped off their clothing and for riot police for pitched battles with neo nazis he witnessed the events. the holiday for millions and street brawl for some unlike most of the post soviet
3:02 am
region on may the ninth of this ukrainian city became a vicious display of anyone not as many. but several thousand activists from radical nationalist parties look at the entrance to red army soldiers cemeteries preventing war veterans from getting inside and playing tribute some in this part of ukraine do not see may the ninth as a reason to celebrate believing the soviet period to be worse than enduring nazi occupation the st george's ribbon is usually worn as a tradition on may the ninth to commemorate those who died in the great crash or to war but on this day in the west the ukrainian capital city of the off putting this on your lapel would have meant serious risk regardless of whether you're a veteran or not. if you like it what you got that the ribbons were forcibly ripped from the chests of those who were heading to the grave yards along with the views of chances such as death to the mosque right nazi salutes hurling rocks and small bombs that is how divorce marks made the ninth yeah we're here in this picture and
3:03 am
my brothers and my father deliver a show this line from the fascists but these people here did not let me come inside this century to lay flowers and he's great this is a disgrace. it's obscene surprised even the locals who had grown used to protests on victory day these were the scenes from last year when the nationalist wipe their feet on the red victory banner third a cure are going to be spent thirteen years in detention in siberia brothers were killed it really could something like this have happened in a new country that. their heroes are people regarded worldwide does not see collaborators replica shirts with the founders of the one nine hundred forty s. insurgent army stick around when they're in the mansion which are big hit here there are seen as freedom fighters even though for a while they fought alongside the nazi army and kill civilians jews and russians in the new some manner how. the mainstream political parties deal with the thoughts of
3:04 am
movements today in cairo. as we've seen in case you crane where they're. going to have and if it is not just a hero although it appeared to be an anti russian protest but really it was a protest of the. ukrainian society in this case has to deal with it and this is only part of why depiction of the perception of the past is making waves in the other former soviet states namely as as marches and glorifying nazi juice in the baltic states such as last year and the story you know the danger is that people begin to forget what we fought for and what the veterans died for as we're seeing the reemergence of far right force international forces it really in many sense resemble exactly the merge with hitler in the one hundred thirty such behavior it's the only applies to the minority that most people in this country still celebrate history with proper respect of the army seems a lot more should definitely allergic lanes leadership especially after demands for
3:05 am
revolution were clearly voiced by the and with more. reporting from divorce in western ukraine. more analysis on this with richard babbitt from russia profile magazine here in the studio thanks for joining us here now ukraine suffered terribly at the hands of the nazis and helped the feet of so what's going on here oh ukraine is a nation should probably know. there was a part of your green that had been part of the soviet union before nine hundred thirty nine there was another part of ukraine that had never been even inside the russian empire and that was merged with the soviet union by stalin in that you can learn so it's a very complicated issue because for the first time ukraine united under the soviet union at the same time a ward of ukraine suffered in the hands of soviet secret police so it's a very tricky. question but certainly the nards is deeply ukrainians something
3:06 am
terrible something large was done what the so even the so is secret police to do so what can be done to help stop prevents or prevent the spread of this kind of nationalism invest in ukraine although i think for the beginning there to do it all their western media should change because the sentimental way to korea nationalism but we have seen in european and american media since the beginning of the ninety's and especially during the so-called orange revolution i think it's a simplification and it led to all sorts misunderstandings even you know the feeling of you should cause idealized for a long time by westerners until when the end of his rule he suddenly made but there are a very controversial controversial extremist figure or ukrainian nationalist movement he said and made him a hero of ukraine we've seen similar events in the former soviet republics and what's driving this and even s.s. marches and the like. well there are various reasons for that in the baltics and in
3:07 am
the western ukraine of course there is a lot of resentment against the soviet period and this reserve is encouraged by the west instead of believe it it. certainly for the status for some time there was no alternative there was people are hostile it so. there are some people who think that he would be better than stalin and unfortunately part of western dress encourages these sorts you talk about the west then and in some growing national movements in western europe are there any connections between them and that's where i think it has different origins and even the right just movement in russia also has different oranges in western europe and in russia now it's mostly resentment against migrants against migration which breeds you know. a big unknown in the last few years in the west in ukraine in the baltics it's idea is
3:08 am
asian although priest or get lost it's idea was asian of all it was cruel and it's also of course resentment against the soviet period of history you mentioned russia just a second ago what's the situation in russia in terms of the extreme right well unfortunately we are also more angels and we're not clean of this terrible thing also in russia there are various groups which have different origins in the last few years the strongest was the movement which was actually just you know reacted to the spread of migration especially legal migration there was a lot of racism based simply on the way people will call the way they behave but also of course we have some extremist groups which also idealized hitler and which also sometimes claim the same things that we've heard had been involved that it would be better not start a riot in russia they are a small minority i would see
3:09 am
a suppressed minority because the state is against this and in ukraine for a long time the state was not against this and now the state is moralist but you have seen what happened in the war for me at the local authorities did not want to get a lot of otherwise they would not allow the young to me or not so stop walk the cemetery ok thank you thank you indeed for that analysis thank you. i mean on the libyan capital tripoli has been hit by another heavy bombardment reports suggest at least eight strikes were carried out by nato fighter jets witnesses say the strikes targeted areas north on from gadhafi compound coalition forces also bombed the government building which was no like the nation and came to the truth. tripoli says it was the second nato strike in just a week on this or that's violence that's going to. members of coalition face and growing backlash. now these two frogs. reports on the president fast

word. nato has reportedly been using depleted uranium bombs in the bit next hour an anti-nuclear activists tells r.t. about the long lasting consequences it could have is a preview. defeated uranium is a weapon i think discriminative fecht because of the impact what happens is that when the share of the round. is explodes and it has what's been described as an aerosol effect of radioactive particles and you can't ever ensure that those particles will only affect military personnel that means that they can indiscriminately affect civilians and that of course is illegal under international law some countries haven't yet recognize that as indeed you have seen on the web sites the british government just. suffice to continue but it's absolutely unacceptable if you're talking where it's done except for any particular talking
3:14 am
about being there to protect the civilians to use a form of weaponry which will impact on in so devastating a way it's absolutely shocking. but boat carrying around six hundred refugees has reportedly sunk off the coast. the witnesses reported a superb part and what another vessel reports that sixty miles. later was accused of ignoring distress calls from a rift between two groups the. patients but well for the most outspoken treatment of refugees says the incident shows willful negligence . these kinds of events are hard chandeliers surprising to me you talking about the most sophisticated technological army in the world and they would not be
