this is our team's time here wednesday night here in moscow welcome my name is kevin zero in on our top story tonight european m.p.'s have called for the union to have a permanent seat at the u.n. security council critics though of the initiative say that the e.u. rarely speaks with one voice anyway enough problems at home to solve without this bushel as the latest from brussels. there's been a furious reaction across the world and in brussels itself what rights does the european union have to lecture the world on war issues when it can't come to any agreements back at home and it can't sort out its own problems in the e.u. say experts there was no unity over the invasion of libya among e.u. member states we're currently seeing roy is in greece over the government's

handling of the country there and several states though want to help rescue fellow member state portugal's filled economy there's also the question do you do taxpayers want to bail out and pay for this extra cost at the time of financial crisis the move would leave e.u. . member states with three out of the six permanent positions on the council now several large parts of the world from asia to africa and latin america have no voice whatsoever and they already accuse the west of being overrepresented on vimeo organization and even e.u. members themselves are up in arms france and britain say it will dilute their sovereignty one british m.p. says he will fight the decision here same session europol you're a parliament agreed to open an office in the libyan rebel stronghold of being

causey which would quote facilitate assistance to the rebels fronting ickes nations the european union is going for beyond its powers in interfering in the work of other countries and far beyond its remit accorded to it by the un here declared head of the brussels office of the open europe think tank told me he doesn't deserve a seat since he sees it on the un security council. this is just sort of a resolution by the european parliament without any direct effect it just shows how basically out of touch many people in the european parliament or with the real world it's not a good idea for the e.u. to be in the security council the un security council is meant to contain only those foreign powers in the world that matter and the problem is that on many issues numbers they just don't agree it's only in the u.k.

have different interests and different opinions on for example how to deal with libya if you want to force them to to work together at all costs all the time they're probably going to have paralyzed in the end so that's not a good idea. he wants to steal power not only from foreign countries but from its own members as well critics say later this hour we'll be speaking to a euro skeptic amy pay who claims that the union is trying to take over control of financial policy from individual governments. for the first might look innocent but if you go deep behind in one particular risk the point is that there are some hidden measures but my lead to further. off a fiscal policy and tax policy i think the national government definitely should have full control over the tax policy over day of fiscal policy which means social systems pension systems health care systems be things should not be given up in

favor of european authorities or european institutions. the crackdown on anti-government protests in syria is intensifying with army tanks reportedly shelling residential districts in the third largest city of. human rights groups believe more than seven hundred fifty people have been killed since the unrest began almost two months ago and with the crackdown international pressure on the country to stop the violence is also growing thawing recently introduced eve sanctions the u.s. is reportedly considering calling for regime change now anders artie's lorimer reports parallels with the libyan scenario which started with similar initiatives not going on notice neither. rebels clash with security forces hundreds die and the west calls for the bloodshed to stop sanctions slapped down and arms sales in. but this isn't libya's spring it's syria and it's calling

a road map that led to just one place for its african arab neighbor nato intervention who watches it's a regime dissent tantalizing western leaders there's great excitement in washington . aspect of overthrowing the syrian government that's been on the track burner in washington or just. the e.u. has put the freeze on assets of thirteen top government military and intelligence leaders topping the list is this man the syrian president's younger brother he's described as the principal overseer of violence against protesters but no sanctions are being applied to the man calling the shots president assad himself to some asset is a convenient ally for the west although that's what was being said about dappy in recent years before the sanctions kicked in. member states including. perhaps think
2:07 pm
it's still possible to do business but bashar. western educated. person educated wife as well so they see. the force of opera moderation in the country the e.u. says that could be censored if he fails to stop the brutal crushing of opposition but he needn't worry the arab lawyers association says no one his savvy would keep assets in their own names so sanctions are toothless the un and the international community is being reduced from an international organization. must take police authority whereby you begin to freeze assets of individuals sometimes the individuals. and you will but it's a it's a gimmick which is used in most of the instances and this gimmick is counterproductive because it just make noises. and i think it is.
2:08 pm
effective or not europeans of growing a million with imposing sanctions but that was relatively easy to apply to libya which had long been suffering isolation even among arab states but syria has friends the west might be reluctant to provoke not only syria you know very sensitive environment as there is of course that creating a difficult situation or situation situation with israel you also have all these elections that syria has iran. as well with the palestinian house which to me to make a very dangerous for the whole community because we've been monitoring intervention in syria we know. president bashar assad's regime the u.k. led the charge in pushing for a quick response to the syrian crackdown and british foreign secretary william hague said he welcomes the sanctions but to bucklebury. all too familiar it's more

than six weeks since sanctions on libya which acts to failure and the public role at the diplomatic dice against syria can only prompts a similar fate and see the mediterranean gunships sail east here and it's r.t. . the director of the institute of islamic political thought made me earlier he told me sanctions and interventions only ever end up hurting people. i think we've seen the model in libya foreign intervention has only complicated things. intervention has not held a subtle problem in libya and i don't think it will help settle the problem in syria and we've seen sanctions there's a history of adopting sanctions in various places including iraq for many many years and only the only people suffered throughout the time when sanctions were
2:10 pm
imposed in syria it is still different from the needy and scenario it is old course possible that we'll get there sometime but so long as the opponents of the region are not lured into using force into use into carrying arms then hopefully we will not end up with another libya because in libya it started becoming catastrophic when the revolution turned into an armed conflict. this is r.t. still to come in the program how just is the justice in georgia we. had seventy years of the soviet union seventy wars with jail and seven years of circus treaties regime good luck hundred lawyers on prison on a european court of justice ruling against tbilisi draws attention to how the government is tightening the noose around judges their party investigates also. we'll be getting some expert opinion on the plans of the u.s. state department spread billions on fighting internet censorship in countries of

2:12 pm
the relegating those terrorists and of course you have to remember that with the song is not in been gone the threat of al qaeda still looms very large though that mastermind is gone still terrorist to continue to operate all around the world russia is our number one most wanted terrorist don't talk him out of is actually still at large and he is responsible for the two most recent bombings in russia those of course where the explosions in moscow metro in last year and their recent terror attacks at moscow's dhamma dead iraqi airport so cold that the head of the biggest international terror going to six may be than the rest of those terrorists with numerous cells all over the world particularly in northern africa are still at large and the threat unfortunately still persists. and russia's chechen republic have a painful history of fighting terrorism but the worst use of this war are over is the biggest battles now if all of a football field as we find out in just a few minutes time. for. us to power the state wants to allocate nineteen million

2:14 pm
states. try to previous to the uprisings in egypt the regime for years censor the internet that you didn't see then allocating funds to break the censorship of the egyptian government and so i think you just have to look at this as just another instrument of the foreign policy objectives of the united states. another example that might seem somewhat hypocritical in the relationship to the money being allocated to break censorship in china or on for example is the treatment of the least from her in look at the treatment that they've done to bradley manning you know it is essentially torturing this young man who has not been convicted of anything but i can still being held in solitary confinement they move from one person show another. for providing information that is very necessary for people to have the order to have what they would consider to be a democratic. washington maybe planning to fear in china's web space with one eye
