germany agrees to supply nato forces in libya with war munitions drawing criticism for deviating from its original position on intervention amid speculation it's been pressured by other alliance members. meanwhile the block's cooperation with moscow might be taken to a new level as discussions on a common missile defense system in europe are expected to dominate the russian nato summit in sochi. plus former general rocco alloted plans to boycott the u.n. war crimes court hearing working faces charges of genocide serbs will lost their families during the bosnian war say justice is totally one sided.
and i am of the russian capital you're watching r t with me josh welcome to the program germany has agreed to supply munitions for the nato air strikes in libya the move comes despite a berlin never originally backing the operation and some suggest peer pressure has caused a shift in position as. ford's berlin's attempt to have its cake and eat it may not be proving successful. more bombs wanted just over one hundred days of airstrikes and with just over two thousand bombs dropped by nato allies in libya the mission has run into an unexpected problem a lack of sales to drop where there is demand there is supply in this case germany has agreed to provide the much needed ammunition previously berlin has abstained from voting in favor of the un security council resolution on libya a move that surprised some and angered others but it may now be backing out of a decision the germans may not want to participate but are they have decided that
the position does not preclude them actually sublime weapons in this case or systems some believe germany is under pressure from other nato members particularly the united states friends in the u.k. to take a more active part in the libyan campaign at first hand our main you know ministries toward the foreign affairs minister don't go into libya it's a very bad conflict it was started by the cia and it's a dirty business don't go there so this is why you voted with russia and china now the backlash from washington is so tough that obviously we are under pressure to do something to make up for this decision aside from peer pressure germany may be alerted by the possible financial benefits of making its weapons available for natives use in libya probably germany will get paid for delivering these to other countries but that is normal practice between can't even be in nato countries. out
of the twenty eight nato members only eight are actively participating in libya with civilian deaths to which nato recently admitted to a shortage of weapons and the ever relentless more market duffy still at the helm the coalition may be facing just the beginning of its problems in fact what we see here is that deliberately the country is be. being destroyed which is by far by fog transgressing the decision by the security council and that's a very bad story right now berlin is in a tough spot on the one hand it has disappointed nato by refusing to support the mission in libya in march on the other by agreeing to supply bombs it may now lose friends in other high places and whatever the real reasons for its contradictory policy may be germany could find that by trying to please everyone it may end up pleasing no one it even goes corti brussels. r.t.
has exclusively spoken to colonel gadhafi son who believes nato just wants to feast on media's riches. these countries is a piece of cake rich guys. and we have more than one hundred million dollars deposits abroad so we have to show you this better. than having to get the job as we call it is the only good. version of this interview on our website r t v dot com. former bosnian serb general is planning to boycott his second plea hearing at the hague tribunal he claims he doesn't yet have his own defense lawyer more than a month after he was arrested a lot of his accused of ordering the massacre of thousands of bosnian muslims and the town of srebrenica but as
a country does or reports there are many serbs who feel the international criminal court's only out to get justice for one side in the conflict. liquid little town of sibling meets in bosnia and herzegovina looks at daily you houses are being built people go about their business and in the center of the town a mosque and a church sit side by side. but this apparent unity is an illusion sixteen years ago the entire region was torn apart by ethnic clashes during the yugoslav war and seventy to became infamous when the united nations stated eight thousand muslim men and boys were massacred by bosnian serb forces today and the morial for the deceased sits in the grounds of a former un military base the city but it's a memorial ground as well maintained and frequently visited by locals journalists and tourists who get boston from the bosnian capital of. what the tourist arm shown are the thousands of serbian graves that line cemeteries all around us that have
been used to region. thousands of people were killed during the balkan wars of the one nine hundred ninety s. but cemeteries like these with entire families of murdered serb civilians only get visited by the very few remaining survivors but only comes here all the time his entire family lives here he says a bosnian muslim general is responsible for his best because you know today i was only nine years old when next year or each took away eric and i had in like the first he killed my mother then my father and brother i was wounded and taken captive they held me for six days and only god knows how why i survived. but even though but on a survive his loss just like that of spasms of people here is being ignored or each was at the hague tribunal and i was supposed to be a witness in his trial but in the end me and about thirty other witnesses was
simply cost a side they didn't cause you didn't ask what happened to our families and the tribunals only gave him two years in prison. the balkan war so heinous atrocities visited an all sides and perpetrated by all players but the version most often propagated by western media is rather one sided in blaming the serbs the purpose of that is to set the stage and create a rationale for so-called humanitarian interventions which in the occurred in considerable number in the mouth of serpent so that so-called precedent can be traced through the years and into today's headlines bosnia iraq afghanistan and most recently libya have all played unwilling hosts to nato troops and u.s. imposed no fly zones it is very important in the creation of the.
scenario to make sure that in the minds of most people. was a draw on the side which was preventable but for whatever reasons the so-called international community didn't do anything about it. soon might say the journey from sebring needs it to benghazi via baghdad and kabul could now be traced as a kind of nato road map but as with any road paved with good intentions there is only one possible destination. castros are about r t bosnia and herzegovina. chance for a breakthrough on a common missile defense system is up for grabs today for nato the alliance had anders fogh rasmussen is in russia's city of sochi for talks and the missile shield is something that scared to be brought to the table argument on the look of it joins us live from. so how crucial is
a dad the two sides reach an agreement on that. well it of course it is very crucial it has been russia's concern for a very long time now russia doesn't want an arms race and if nato is to place its anti-missile defense shield in europe and then trying to sell defense shield that's going to be covering a big part of russia's territory then of course an arms race exactly what's going to happen according to present the great if we could see it starting by as soon as two thousand and twenty russia and the united states have signed strategic arms reduction treaty especially for the purpose of preventing an arms race and this seems to be an apple of discord at exactly going to do the opposite. and russia's. speaking had over russia a nato summit has been saying that it's now time for nato members to make suggestions when it comes to a possibility of a joint missile defense shield in europe together with washer as russia has already made steps forward in that direction but none of them seem to have been accepted of
course the issue of operation in libya will also be widely discussed to be their voice and has been saying that he believes and the ground operation could be just around the corner in the corner in libya and that's operation will only prolong this conflict and was severely worsen the situation in the region in general but of course russia and they do have some common goals such as fighting terrorism and drug trafficking and they are also on the agenda they will be discussed. all right and i think very much indeed for bringing us to some data will surely be crossing back to you some more on this reporting from sochi. so i had for you this hour here . our team chances for change after tan here obvious us campaign and afghanistan please bring you an expert opinion on what the new patent on chief has to do finally to stop bloodshed and the region. and animal hard saving human lives russian give new live to. planning

only chance for survival i renounce surgeon is implanting a groundbreaking artificial valve made from a pig's heart into the chest of twenty four year old who has a rare and life threatening heart defect the valve invented by russian surgeons has never been used before after three hours the operation is complete computers will start to pick up your situation itself is a success we need some time to see how the patient recovers but in any case her life before was unbearable half the time he has employed came from this farm outside of moscow earlier surgeons had to sort through hundreds of pigs and cows hearts to find one that can be used as a valve and was almost impossible to find the right donor for the new model so they found it tailor made solution even before they were born each one of these cows was matched their particular patient who's waiting on a less than moscow now since then the way that they've been fed every single part
of their lifestyle has been carefully monitored so when the time comes they become the perfect donor the owner of the farm alexander kind of was a multi-millionaire entrepreneur but two years ago he sold all of his businesses and retired to the countryside to graze the most ecologically clean farm possible he gives away his animals hard for nothing to go to this was a way that we were just so proud we are helping save lives i never thought we'd be doing this. once the heart is removed from the animal it's taken to this hospital lab here at the sterilized and all the parts of the valve are sewn together biological valves are often superior to traditional mechanical models and don't require the patient to take drugs for their lifetime the lab director is hoping more successful implants will encourage health authorities to invest more funds and i'm fortunate. that only two years three produces a biological volves in the whole of russia and it's not enough great no people here
