three thousand dollars to the person who can catch the creature from the deep. explores the dangers. nothing like this has ever happened here before russia has never seen a shark attack let alone two in two days this sixteen year old boy was diving one hundred meters off shore when it appeared the young man's wet suit served as protection and saved him from death but both his legs were severely wounded. crying help help the shark had a big bowl but it was tired out so some guys went out on to do the sea of humanity first day. only a day earlier a twenty five year old man lost his forearms trying to defend his wife when the couple was saved witnesses were shocked at what they saw but i would ask you if it was really scary a country can describe it as the man's hands were chewed off and the boat was in
the lurch. the attacks happened in the far eastern premal your region that shares a border with north korea it is known for its beaches and clear water and swimming here has always been safe dangerous sharks don't usually go that far north in the sea of japan scientists believe the predator was a white shark a man eater and all trying to work out what it was doing here. this type of show it really comes to our waters it's a species that lives a tropical and subtropical waters of the ocean but with global warming they're now starting to move more and more to the law out of roughly three hundred sixty species of sharks just over thirty are known to be dangerous to humans the rest are either too small on live t v but most experts agree that any shark with sharp enough teeth and longer than one point two metres can cause serious injuries especially if there's food or blood in the water and while scientists are looking
for the reasons for these recent attacks the swimming season in the area is over at least for the time being. r.t. moscow skies around moscow have been even busier than usual this week with the mats international ash exiting flying machines but for more kinds of gravity the five star. is that the. there are sounds of jet engines on propellers in the skies and scores of various aircraft on the ground so what does all this mean the must two thousand and eleven air show has opened its doors to the public the previous couple of days it was primarily open to official and business delegations inking out those billion dollar contracts with some big names of civil and military aircraft producers from all over the world but now everyone can enjoy these machines with their own eyes right here at the mox two thousand and eleven there's
a lots in store for everyone to watch here at the air show we've already seen some stunning performances by the russia knights swifts and falcons we're expecting more from them there's also a great variety of the various helicopters for those heavy lowers out there including this fifty two alligator one of the latest billets here in russia this is really a true green mean war machine if you notice it has a unique coaxial rotor system which gives it extreme and over ability that is definitely going to be one of the biggest violates the air show seen this machine out there in the skies with the pilots showing off their skills but probably the biggest highlight off of this year's mox air show is deal latest russia's top secret self fighter jet the code named the t fifty and r t's even though school
found out why this plane is all such strategic importance many have heard about it but until now only a select few had seen it with their own eyes two of the nation fans the t. fifty is known as pac this is if he is still being developed so most of his technical specifications are top secret in fact us closer. we can get to the real thing is this model right here but during the next air show visitors get it sure we can eat just to see the jets in flight the first ever public display for talks but the jet is being developed by the sukhoi design bureau under the watchful eyes of the united aircraft corporation and the entire project is shrouded in mystery in fact representatives of the corporation say the project is so secret they can't even talk on camera about it so if the united states and russia are the only two countries in the world that have the technological potential to implement
a large scale national project for the development of a fifth generation jet fighter the fact that russia has demonstrated in this year's max air show is strong evidence that russian aviation is in a very good state the jets will reportedly be able to carry out combat duty in any weather at any time of day will feature a special coating which will make it less noticeable to and to aircraft craters and will be able to cruise at supersonic speed had most of the guesswork boils down to this one highly developed the russian generation fighter the american half twenty two and f. thirty five a run for their money in terms of stealth capabilities maneuverability and cost smart of. being a new generation fighter it's so much more comfortable if lyle everything was designed with safety in mind it has thrust vectoring engine fly safely at low near zero speeds it's safe even when a fly still first up to date environment in
a cockpit is also the fighter provides intelligence support to the pilots on board the jets are supposed to be fully developed by two thousand and fifteen it's hoped orders for roughly six hundred jets will follow with one third of that number going to russian air force but until the final touches to the project are made the only chance to see the hope and pride of russian aviation is a max air show in macos co r.t. to call the ski school region. do you stay with us see throughout the weekend the best of this is max that cup bridge. approach. future of. our team takes to the air show. on in just
a few minutes almost. to the water sports you can enjoy during the capital from the heat wave that fell to the business marina. business here on our team now we start this hour with the markets of course which plunged into another round of volatility was fears of an underlying double dip the sentimental spurred by a bouquet of negative data for europe and the u.s. and there are some voices are no exception they are also extended also as from the previous session they are western from athens as the r.t.s. and the my sex are just follow in the global. it's the same as are seeing on a global scale it's really a market that is now driven by fear. the increasing concern that a state of the global another global recession took a real hold on the markets yesterday and what clients are trying to do is to try to
figure out where we go from here because there's so many on certain factors right now to some extent you can argue that the the current situation is actually more pakoras that it was in two thousand and seven given that policymakers are running out of options china has their own problems in trying to sort of cool down their economy and then you have different policy options in europe and the u.s. u.s. is probably going to try and stimulate where's europe where there is a lot about certain issues on top of that i think you know little forward i mean if you look at what's going to happen in europe over the next couple of months you're going to have about four hundred fifty billion euros to be paid in debt by euro zone countries by the before the end of the year two hundred fifty billion of those come due in september and october so i think for those two months we're going to continue to see increased volatility the good news i would say though is that we don't see the same kind of panic selling that we saw in two thousand and eight. while at the same time steam jacobson from saxo bank believes that apart from the current volatility russia has to pay more attention to its fundamentals. the
capital outflow in russia continues to be there every single day in some way or another you need to stand out of capital because that is in itself a huge statement that domestic russians doesn't trust their own markets if you look at medium term long term i don't think the oil prices is a big issue i think the world will come back we've seen growing signs that asia is now willing to ease monitored policy somewhat which is by by by a long shot the biggest buy a new unit all of these days so all is not an issue decries is is having. an economic numbers will have a slightly bigger impact going to three months forward but in itself i think the major thing to watch right now is how you stem the outflow of capital in russia. so instead to look after the markets now in europe the markets are trifling losses in asia and we're seeing this sell off the footsie astride him below five thousand while the german dax is at its lowest point since two thousand and nine b.h.p.
billiton is the client two point three percent this hour after approving investment to expand the coal mines in colombia. and here in moscow the markets are trading in negative territory extending thursday's losses the r.t.s. are shedding over three percent while the my sex is more than three percent this fall. and a second look at the market movers on the my sites energy majors are among the worst performers with gas from down almost three and a half percent banking stocks are also on the pressure with those and it's a more or less a five percent there. and then there's of course is not the heavy losses following a sharp sell off in the us x. waters were among the worst performers on the neck a with turn down two point six percent and citizen overflow poseidon's and the rise of carmakers were no exception honda shadow around three percent and this is stocks were the worst hit in hong kong with petro china down around four percent it's the
second look at oil. prices they couldn't seem to fall after an almost six percent decline on thursday concerns about a global economic recovery i'll weigh in on crude thoughts though with the dollar is given some supports the w c i was at around eighty dollars per barrel while bryant has fallen to one hundred and six dollars per barrel and a quick look at precious metals gold is setting out a new record high level as uncertainty about the global economy is pushing investors back to safe haven it's this small quizes out above one thousand eight hundred sixty dollars per ounce and silver is also op ed spinning over its supersized this hour. the all fears over dreaded double dip are once again rising in the markets the us of us of all that from deutsche bank says russia is in a better position so the sun the recession that it wasn't two thousand and eight so the comparison in favor of today is with regard to corporate balance sheets at the
micro level of individual enterprises i think we're seeing a better picture in terms of less currency risk a less currency mismatches. less leverage that. has accumulated. especially if we're talking about short term debt. but at the same time if you take the sovereign level if you take a country level so to say. we do see that the level of fiscal reserves the level of forest reserves is somewhat lower compared to two thousand and eight. so was the slugs the sour for sore as you can always heads are websites are seen dot com slash business in the meantime satan for the headlines without us.
