2:02 am
that the whereabouts first as you remember they've announced that they captured say full islam gadhafi his son and then it turns out that he actually hasn't been captured then we've been receiving information that the rebels know where gadhafi is here in tripoli and the ravens had but they've cornered khadafi and the spin had winds. many international news channels for quite a while but it actually didn't and with any concrete detail you can create a success as well we are receiving reports that the rebels have flooded the streets of tripoli trying to hunt down khadafy what we saw were driving from the tunisian libyan border to the capital tripoli differs a lot from what we used to see here june and july when the western part of the country had been controlled by gadhafi forces new leaders flags. waving everywhere and all the buildings all the walls covered with roughly cheese in
2:03 am
arabic english and french are welcome to you libya welcome to freely meanwhile remind us of the recent battles everywhere we've seen many bands and hang spurns cars actually we've also got a feeling that the rebels are the only people left in libya because of the cities we've been driving through abandoned empty like ghost cities. or even national reporting there from syria meanwhile the race for a leader has vast oil wealth is gathering momentum stayed to work together during a massive nato airstrikes are now working against each other in a battle to secure a lucrative energy contract sarah for three ports it's led to fears that a new regime in libya could easily slide into corruption. half a billion dollars from italy now a whopping one point five billion from the u.n. all that into three hundred million dollars from turkey it's a scotians
2:04 am
a down to about the future of the case here is the money that's been talking aloud governments have a strong interest in. opening up business for. everybody is recent it leads foreign minister has the night there's a race on with france to be the first on the ground to restart business in libya and the italians have me clear their eagerness to maintain the extremely close trade ties they enjoyed under the gadhafi regime but as the money begins to flow to help the national transitional council if it takes power the big question mark remains a very exact lehua these fast funds belong in the dark streets which is coming to an end the borderline between wealth the problem well it's family and the wealth of the state were not very clear so it's hard to see how much of this money was
2:05 am
a direct emanation of gadhafi as well and how much of it was actually. could be categorized as libyan assets because that the family were often accused of using libya's riches as their own personal pocket money now there are concerns that the unfreezing of libyan assets without effective monitoring key to aid in the floodgates to new corruption lead is now. everybody's trying to. you know it's sort of. been trying to exploit this war as best everybody pollutants of oil gas and infrastructure projects to follow as the water on country rebuilds their. everyone it seems wants a slice of the action a war is nowadays indispensable for western economies with interest to leave.
2:06 am
you destroy your ability to read your review it's like a vicious for not just italy that have been trying to keep the national transitional council. like it or not but many western countries a place for libya will mean big business there for. careless purpose cobar says nato is selling the story of a rebel victory to the world when in fact a u.s. undercover operation was the driving force in removing colonel gadhafi his story from the beginning was our to pete responsibility to protect there as the basis for u.n. resolution one nine seventy three there is that we that the agreement between the u.s. and saudi arabia we get a resolution freeze on your fake arab league vault nine countries are over twenty two and you can do if you want with saudi arabia itself but this was the cover story sold to american in european public opinion especially the chinese the russians many people in brazil for that you know they're not buying it they nor
2:07 am
it's a us needle coordinated operation without them there will be no free to disappear still not they'll go for ever and we have international community sort of these include atlanticist powers big insight into civil war so when they knew that they could do one for months or years on end it's ok let's try to take tripoli in one day and they did it because they blew these are the people go whole city and the way thorson's. they are commenting on new year's row in the lead in this conflict. fresh diplomatic efforts to and the ongoing violence in syria have been made by russia as it's introduced its own draft u.n. resolution moscow is calling on both sides in a country to engage in dialogue and for president to speed up promised reforms at the sky if she can is across the way to. it looks like we're going to see a battle of two different versions of resolutions on syria the u.n. security council russia is putting forward its graphic resolution which will be an
2:08 am
alternative to the resolution that the u.s. and european representatives are putting together a letter has already been dubbed hankins resolution the u.s. and european leaders trying to put more pressure on the syrian government as the russian version of the resolution makes very important points first of all it cost to the syrian government to expedite the implementation of the reforms that president assad has announced in order to effectively address the legitimate aspirations and concerns of the syrian people and second it urges the syrian opposition to engage in political dialogue with the syrian authorities about what reforms to carry out in the country the syrian opposition definitely could be more forthcoming in that direction so are very important difference there the washroom draft resolution does not put pressure on just one side it calls for dialogue it calls for restraint on both sides and here is more on that from russia's and for to the united nations who spoke with us earlier if there are some constructive ideas from all corners we're prepared to absorb them but of course simply you know
2:09 am
americans are to go to different species from different planets so what we have seen from. colleagues u.k. and others it's completely biased and leaning exclusively on the syrian government that doesn't have anything about the need for dialogue doesn't go to your position for dialogue in fact our concern is that it's going to push the but the more extreme the more destructive elements of the syrian opposition towards. syria even stronger efforts in order to topple the syrian government so that's why we don't like all. the clothes are trying to achieve by that resolution and propose an alternative bill to keep the security council of the world but have a vote in. for months russia has been pointing at the problem with the attitude the west of the west towards the dramatic developments in syria moscow says that
2:10 am
attitude has been exclusively about exerting pressure on one of the parties namely the syrian government and president sucked which effectively sends the wrong message to the syrian opposition prompting them to believe that if they remain insistent on the situation keeps getting critical the west will come to help them you know the way it happened to leave on a number of occasions the russian resolution calls on the syrian authorities to allow unhindered access to international humanitarian agencies and to fully cooperate with the un commissioner for human rights now. how the resolution how far the resolution can go both russia and the u.s. have veto power as we know along with china the u.k. and france and that means whatever resolution comes out at the end of the day it has to be acceptable for at least all of the five permanent members of the u.n. security council if they don't agree there is going to be no resolution. i was going to reform washington d.c. . so i have for this hour here on our t.v.

2:22 am
most of them parents or relatives outside of the openness of these people simply do not want to look after them or kind of be trusted to do so so this is something that needs to be solved on a social level where the general social problems that cause these children to be taken away how can they be tackled so it's not necessarily something that's either an individual or for the horn individual part of russia can provide but the same the kind of regions are trying to say ok we are being dealt with all these orphans we're receiving all these people but at least all we can do is plug all of them a new home and that's what i tried to do as you can see more reports. in russia it's hard enough to find a new family for healthy orphans it's even harder for children like these all of them diagnosed with serious physical and mental all psychological disabilities. here at carole's finish number one they manage it well in russia there are

currently hundred and fifty thousand children who haven't been adopted here ninety eight percent of all orphans find a new family before the six. or so many orphanages exist by themselves in isolation we are reaching out to the potential parents and the authorities and working with them you know first course of action is to try and place the children back with parents who often give them up scared off by the diagnoses often it shows that with the right care these children can lead normal lives. the parents have to prove their attitude has changed for other potential adopters through educational courses and ongoing medical support all basics in the worst but hardly universal in russia yet these on the main reasons for their success. that has occurred but it doesn't matter how good the facilities are here and what care the children receive we are all of the staff here still no than an orphanage is no substitute for a family
2:24 am
a quick straw poll shows as much. but i don't think there are three of us here me and my two sisters we really want to be adopted by the same family but not everyone wants three kids to orphanages track record is anything to go by bills soon find a family. care provide new families for these children are commendable but others only so much of an orphanage can do to solve the problem of adoption that cost to learn not only doctored for children from orphanage number one but also sits on an adoptive parents committee yes. i think the problem is the social attitudes towards the youth children it's not a case of money where an average family all of us did support is really there you just have to love the children themselves. fourteen says she was betrayed by her parents and those who promised to did. she funny for. your group when you're in the home your role was just a part of the group but here in the family you are needed by someone there is more
