gold new gold and little center. will fix the ski lift you really see on this column if you visit. tonight the faces of fascism in western ukraine as nationalists physically and virtually attack veterans paying tribute to those who died securing the country's freedom in the second world war we have a report for. anger boils over in france of its present its treatment of ethnic groups and for flouting u.n. resolutions with its actions in libya. finland's authorities are accused of turning a blind eye to add the russian prison ality after a court clears a terrorist sympathizer of smuggling chechens into the country. also fears of a collapse at one of the fukushima nuclear reactors well japan's authorities are
criticised for letting a vacuum ease back into the radiation zone. and in business this hour moscow hosted a telecom and communications exhibition today in a bid to compete with the high speed changes happening in the world of technology join me for more that story in more around twenty minutes time. welcome this is r t it's just after nine pm now you're moscow this tuesday night it's kevin zero in here with you this hour with our top story the solemn pride being shown for victory day was hijacked by violent nationalists in western ukraine with nazi salutes they attacked the veterans who fought to free them from a version sixty six years ago his election or a jet ski reports next told how it's just one part of a thyroid surge in europe. the holiday for millions and street brawl for
some unlike most of the post soviet region on may the ninth this ukrainian city became a vicious display of neo nazis and. several thousand activists from radical nationalist parties block 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 me the night as a reason to celebrate leaving the soviet period to be worse than enduring nazi occupation the st george's ribbon is usually worn as a traditional 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 off putting this on your lapel would have meant serious risk regardless of whether you are veteran or not. the ribbons were forcibly ripped from the chests of those who were heading to the grave yards along with abuse of chances such as death to the mosque rites and nazi salutes hurling rocks and smoke bombs that is how involved martha made the
ninth. hailed a speech only greatest in my for the liberation of this line from that fascists could these people here do not let me come inside the century to lay flowers and he's great this is a disgrace. such scenes surprised even the locals who had grown used to protests on that three day these were the scenes from last year when nationalist wipe their feet on the red victory banner. i spent thirteen years in detention in siberia brothers were killed. could something like this have happened in a new country. their heroes are people regarded worldwide as nasa collaborators replica shirts with the founders of the one nine hundred forty s. insurgent army stuck on monday and there are a 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 these sorts of
movements today encourage them as we've seen in crane when. not a collaborator has been elevated to status of 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 and this is only part of the wider picture the perception of the past is making waves in other former soviet states and they really as as marches and glorifying nots and agents in the baltic states such as last year and the story of the danger is that people are beginning to forget what we fought for what the veterans died for as we're seeing the reemergence of far right forces and nationalists forces that really in many sense resemble exactly those that the merge with hitler in the one hundred thirty such behavior is still only applies to the minority most people in this country still celebrate history with proper respect but the ugly scenes in the wolf
should definitely allergic lanes leadership especially after demands for revolution were clearly voiced by the and with more police the russian ascii art scene reporting from the fourth in western ukraine. and we got reaction to the story on our website r t v dot com we've also got full footage of the. events that were witness yesterday which marred the i think three days on moral service in ukraine it's available if you'd like to see more in our free video section also there this two. germans some kind of movement in germany are now well flummoxed about fascism the worrying ignorance that may be setting the scene for me or not see the movements to spread across europe report dot com. if if.
the libyan capital was hit by several a strikes on tuesday morning and was believed to be named as heaviest bombing of tripoli in weeks the warplanes apparently targeted government buildings one of which is said to house the center for women and children the raid came hours after a pause of heavy fighting between rebel and pro get out and forces on the eastern front meantime near the capital the opposition says and to get out the protests gaining momentum that's something the government is denying this content is also growing in some nato countries too as people turn on their leaders for violating the u.n. libya resolution for the sake of political ambition bushel reports now from france . for aunts imperialist racist murderer the lyrics to a song president sarkozy's party tried to ban which glossed his treatment of foreigners and its own people rapper sawyer do says the home of liberty it girl
it's a fraternity is anything but an actress but it's a gracious eighty's white masculine in reach for them anyone else is in needs to be taught the civilization france has been condemned for targeting groups such as illegally deporting rumored gypsies while its interior minister also labels muslims as a problem france was responsible for securing the arrest of full ivory coast leader laurent gbagbo france was also the first state to attack libya. cheese eating surrender monkeys some in the u.s. the french for their perceived fear of no even american say the sure war hungry the land of canterbury has become this blogger's saw its protesting the libyan walls been swamped with support from the united states to the middle east.
in. many people in the world and seeing what is going on barry saying well why are you going there and bomb these people you know even though they were. nicolas sarkozy's the most unpopular president in the history of the fifth republic according to the latest polls fraud says bombing of libya has made him even more disliked as soon as you use force there will be casualties there is no middle ground there is no such thing as a clean war war is about killing people three in four voters think so because he's a bad president paul say they had he's abused the u.n. mandate on libya which allowed only the creation of a strict demilitarized area of sky. a no fly zone is not the full. expression to. express. we are going
to. campaign even if you presidential election results and next year french people and politicians already say so because he no longer represents them actually difference is that it's not friends decided it's. still elected president mr sarkozy which again we call a general. rule this was merely the country of laws of war and the oracle. for growing numbers a role in the world france is now a very different kind of word than your bushel see paris. where the pressure on libya began weeks ago with a set of international sanctions now the european union is telling the same tactics towards syria in the last twenty four hours where and the government protests have been raging since march and includes an arms embargo as well as a travel ban and asset freeze for thirteen top syrian officials let's discuss this
event with online current affairs editor and he's in london this lies even see now he's recently adopted sanctions regime in the last twenty four hours target many top officials but not the country's leader himself why is that you think. well there's been some disagreements in the european union about that i think that some member states including germany perhaps think that there's still a possibility of doing business but pressure our who's western educated. us mckay to life as well so there you see he might be the source of all moderation in the country and that's why they're going after these other people but it's been fairly going to be sanctions across the board so will these sanctions actually work do you think. well i mean these particular set of sanctions seem to be pretty. mild and more symbolic than anything else and i'll unlikely to have very much influence on events it's more for the domestic consumption i think rather than because you have
a practical impact but sanctions in general seem to have very little impact on big regimes as far as i can tell it is doing. ordinary people in those countries far more so certainly the case in the years after the first gulf war where there are sanctions against iraq but caused terrible suffering for the people there without actually doing anything to dislodge the regime probably read into the timing of these sanctions may when libya's troubles began foreign nations are lining up their washington in days yet it is taken ini two months just to sign off sanctions against syria the ones we're seeing now why is this such a selective approach should you have you think. well i think the thing is always driven by western political interests rather than by the needs of the people who leave those countries so for people like david cameron and psychos see as you can you heard in that report just a moment ago libya was an easy target not a very popular regime with other arab countries a relatively straightforward thing to do something like
a no fly zone attack gadhafi forces in syria is a completely different kettle of fish it's a it's a very heart of of the middle east it's got a clear alliance with iran very heavily in. lebanon is on it's on friendly relations of recent years with turkey and the last thing that the western world want to do is try these stabilize things while at the heart of things further so what they want to do is kind of nudge assad towards perhaps some liberalization to calm the situation down with stability is the most important thing as far as the west is concerned so following on the train the thought there you don't think we'll see the libyan scenario playing out in syria definitely not i don't think that the west is the job of the league but they've got the confidence that in severely serious way there i'll be honest i don't think that the west really knows what's what to do next so. rather than having
a big grand plan for the region rather than you're hoping for stability i think that their minds are changing every twenty four or forty eight hours about what's the best thing to do so things are very unstable at the moment like i really can't see them intervening in the search in the way that they're going to libya in syria interesting phrase used there obviously should the foreign interference in the events in the arab world north africa be seen as separate cases or is there do you think maybe one grand plan for the region. i think. apart from some general principles about wanting to keep a lid on things i don't think the west is particularly keen on having lots of new democratic regimes kicking about i think they would like liberalization a very stable region regimes if they could but beyond that how they react to these things that they're very uncertain and very divided amongst themselves about what to do certainly in relation to particular cases of of syria that they really don't want to intervene if at all possible again you look at the nervousness of intervening in egypt at the start of the year you can see that they are very
concerned david cameron himself said you can't impose democracy from forty thousand feet yet exactly what they're trying to do in libya so in particular cases like libya and unpopular regime are relatively limited it's a pension they think they can do something with bigger countries more important countries like egypt and syria i think they keep their hands off approach the problem instead of the online current affairs magazine spike joining us from london thank you appreciate it. nato denies it choosing poisonous depleted uranium weapons in libya even though the examination of bomb sites suggests differently no next until nuclear activists talks to us and tells of the why there are legal and moral obligations when it comes to in the interim civilians with these notorious. depleted uranium is a weapon of indiscriminate effect because of the impact what happens is that when the cheryl or the round hit targets explodes and it has what's been described as
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 also have a very long term effect because of the radioactive qualities has a negative impact also on the environment so these are illegal under international law some countries haven't yet recognized that it is indeed you you've seen on the web sites the british government justifies the continued use but it's absolutely unacceptable if you're talking where it's an exceptionally any particular talking about being there to protect the civilians to use a form of weaponry which will impact on them in so devastating a way it's absolutely shocking.
according foodland has acquitted the publisher of a whole sinking a priest website that's linked to churchill michael still shit was accused of smuggling chechens into the country and store shoes the chairman of a finnish organization called caucasus on the tour is covered center website it is a now a no mouth piece for al qaeda linked terrorist leader or mar of who in turn is on the most wanted list in both russia and the us store shoes trial didn't include any of his suspected links to. national terrorism however when finished past a you're more laurie recently tried to draw attention to the chechen extremism he found himself prosecuted the defrocked well you thirty's and that's a finnish human rights activist you want blackman's picked up what he says it reveals a murky pro terry game in finland. called process against me cause to show anything love was short trial. charge of the prosecutor didn't want to sentence him of a they wanted to only to give some kind of justification for him for his activities
well he's an activist who is actively promoting islamistic terrorism against russia he has several websites he has an office and he's a representative of surely all of in finland he's only extremely dangerous individual and i'm very sure of that and he has a very strong political support in finland of course not by all finnish political support by several influential finnish political figures coming out of the program just a few minutes the asian tiger rolls louder. the e.u. one song is going to be. the true currency of the world hailing great progress through gritted teeth as a medical china try to keep it caudle despite the it's a rivalry i said for you also. this a reactor containing the spent fuel pool is in danger of collapse reports of which
have been triggered by webcam images which show the building leaning nuclear research of dr robert jacobs says if the troubled reactor collapses it would make work at the site impossible. this began a speculation among those of us watching the incident because on the webcam in which you can watch it you can look at the four reactors it began to be obvious that building number four was leaning to the right a little bit from the visual field of the webcam. and in now just tonight actually in a release of information from the japanese government they have confirmed that there has been work started yesterday to shore up the structure of the building and specifically the upper floor now in this reactor you have the spent fuel pool that is a much larger spent fuel it has fuel rods from three to four reactors in there and this part of the building is beginning to lean and because of the explosion of reactor three there is some questions about the structural integrity of the
building of reactor four and if that were to collapse you would have all of the fuel in that spent fuel pool just scattered about on the ground and outside of the increasing very very high level of contamination and you would also have radiation rise to levels that would make it very problematic for workers to continue to work on the site at all in these situations managing public opinion is as serious an operation as managing the crisis itself you what you have here in fukushima is you have four reactors that are still emitting significant amounts of radiation into the environment so this is not a situation that has been brought under control it is a situation in which the large releases have been largely the explosions of the first we have been gone past but now we just have ongoing leakage so to continue to tell people about that leakage and to continue to provide a lot of information about that leakage will cause higher levels of distress and also the perception that neither china nor the government is in control of the
situation so it's a lot easier to just who is it reduce the amount of information that the public has so that you're able to control the situation at least from the point of view of public opinion and keep people from panicking. and some more news from a small group of the been inside the radiation exclusion zone around the nuclear plant for the first time the government's given permission for a short visit so that people could gather belongings and check on their properties on tuesday the company operating the facility tepco turned to the japanese government to help pay tens of billions of dollars in compensation go to the evacuees. so u.s. and chinese officials when putting on a show of smiles despite the suspicion is that not far behind the scene to try and fix the crux of the shaky relationship but consensus one country was artie's christine for. these things you should keep your friends close.
and your enemies closer and as far as where china fits perceptions continue to evolve at this year's u.s. china strategic economic dialogue an attempt by officials from both the u.s. and china that friendship the purpose to open communication on concerns like the debt ceiling in the u.s. and the rate of currency appreciation in china and joint concerns about the environment we don't have a great state encouraging find a change and charting a clean and secure energy future currently china is the second highest producer in the world of renewable energy technology the us seventeen the overriding theme for day one of the us china strategic and economic dialogue we to respect and understanding that just because there is competition doesn't mean there can't be cooperation competition is not. competition it's healthy is good.
this is the reason why i have held the view for so many years we continue to hold the view that a rising china is a positive development it's a far cry from the dialogue of recent times were tough decision makers in the u.s. have been told an increased power means an increased threat one that will eventually need to be dealt with by war each year the pentagon comes out with this report military and security developments involving the people's republic of china the findings often use to intensify military spending we are now looking at a power in the western pacific that can stand up to us if if there is a problem in response military spending is now more than the rest of the world combined six times more than china beijing is rapidly modernizing its strategic nuclear forces and developing space weaponry but critics say the threat from china is not the people's liberation army the threat from china is it's growing economic
might like every economist you talk to in washington all of this is saying the u. one is going to be. the actual currency of the world maybe by two thousand and twenty so the economic policy of wash them should leave the pentagon so friend or foe on this day top leaders here are on our phones with this message building mutual trust and respect will help us to solve shared problems but that view may change again when it comes time to play defense to secure more money and more power for the military in washington christine frizz our our city. would you throw out a brief for you israel is marking sixty three years since it became a state with a national holiday and military displaced a country grew after the british mandate over the territory ended after world war two but spurred decades of conflict with muslims the palestinians will mark the
occasion with a day of mourning next week to highlight the hundreds of thousands of refugees lost land that houses which still has peace in the region to this day. dramatic footage of a fire that single for you huge textile in the suburbs of the polish capital of warsaw but thirty firefighting units the one hundred firefighters attacked in flames the plumes of thick acrid smoke rising off the building you can see they're trying to prevent those from spreading to nearby office and residential buildings. the floor is not clear what caused the fire yet no casualties thank you for to keep an eye on that for. just over five minutes time a special report for you tonight about one of the bloodiest battles in history which led to the fall of nazi germany that's the common but it's get this is business news next with katrina. thanks carol and welcome to the business bulletin for this hour global high tech
