noon in moscow i match reza good to have you with us here on r t our top story a landmark ruling by the german constitutional court on the legality of the e.u. ballo packages will be delivered shortly the procedure was triggered by a complaint from euro skeptic academics and politicians they argued the first greek bailout and the subsequent created creation of a special rescue fund growth easy to enjoin in the law financial expert fabulous massey tells r.t. there are legal grounds for a bad imbalance but believes that a court is unlikely to do so as that could mean the fall of the government. i think we have a very grave situation right now. like it's not anymore the parliament which is deciding from the budget of the financial markets and this is unacceptable so i think there's a very legitimate reason for that case but quite skeptical whether the judges
4:02 am
will will roof rule in favor of the compliance because if if they if they set the greek bailout is not not legal this would be the end of our current government and i don't think they will do this. meanwhile in italy in spain thousands of people have hit the streets to protest the government's pressure austerity measures italy's forty five billion euro package welcomed by the e.u. includes among other things new tax hikes any raising the retirement age for women in spain the rallies in the head of a crucial vote by it said it out amending the constitution to limit national debt unions and rights groups say the dead cap would guess that made the country's welfare system and hurt the most vulnerable writer and journalist miguel believes it's the markets that should be responsible for a spain's current predicament not the people the markets are not rational they are
4:03 am
driven usually by fear sometimes by greed. they just think they feel that spain could be like greece or. portugal because. country within the euro so so they tend to lump together countries that are very different but they resemble each other because they are part of the periphery and i think that's the history of recently sets a psychological perception and then again it's true that the growth in spain cannot be growth he's not very good so that in the long will be a problem for there we don't have a problem now but we may have it in the future that is true with the financial turmoil raging across europe calls are growing for the worst hit it hard news to abandon the euro and return to their old national currencies but german economic analyst michel broths tells r.t. the only solution if the crisis is if the strong economies leave the eurozone there's not a solution that the weak countries the strong country has to exit if germany for
4:04 am
example pulls out of the euro or the whole problem what you thought of it means that we will have a stronger currency germany can live with it the others then will have a devaluated this is exactly what they need it means all through the. groovy devaluated this is that what they mean and what they mean need and so the situation is why is it worth not legal ones have to pull out but the germans have to put out . europe's economic woes also being felt in the u.k. thriving some parts of it to crave more control over their finances. start to plan becomes independent and the next logical step is for we just becoming japan's into this sentiment intensifies across the u.k. we talk about that later in the program. first though a bomb blast has rocked the indian capital new delhi killing ten and injuring at

besieged city of homs this is the u.n. calls for more pressure to be put on president assad's regime but professor edmund ghareeb an expert in international relations says sanctions won't necessarily bring down the regime but they will make ordinary people suffer. konami case what happened whatever happens the sanctions are clearly a blunt instrument that does not discriminate between the regime and the people and what may end up happening is the people who probably are going to have the price and the regime especially if we take a look at what happened in iraq or what happened with cuba experiment with a very good example of this where some of the harshest sanctions out imposed on any country in history won't close on iraq and despite that. did not succeed in bringing the regime down and they are. rocky public which was
4:12 am
hurt severely as a result of the sanctions so this is. i think is going to raise a lot of questions especially some of them political some of. course more. he has already imposed sanctions on oil imports from syria on our website we're asking what's the true aim of this so far fourteen percent of respondents think president assad is the target seventy percent say the real game is too liberal voters in the e.u. countries almost a third are you to e.u. wants to please the u.s. and about half of taken part in the online poll say the sanctions hit ordinary syrians to provoke more protests. out here say. the central russian city of jaroslav all is becoming a global think tank this week with a third global policy forum inviting the best minds to come up with solutions to some of the world's thorniest problems this year it's multiculturalism that's among the main focal points
4:13 am
a concept that recently got severe blows in europe global security also on the table with debates on syria and libya and the question of how to keep the region safe after data withdraws from afghanistan or he's and he said no way is. this expected that there's going to be some pretty intense debate especially when it comes to global security in terms of what's happening in libya and now syria and like you said in afghanistan in two thousand and fourteen the u.s. and nato troops are expected to withdraw in four countries like russia and its other partners in the collective. security treaty organization which is an organization that focuses in that part of the world is concerned about how they're going to deal with security in the region after if you will post afghanistan not speak more about about that and other issues that are being covered here at the forum this year joining me is adrian pabst is a lecturer in politics at the university account thanks for being with us always a pleasure to have you. let's start with libya and syria what are the main if i can
4:14 am
say the sticking points that we might hear today what are the different views that you think are going to be thrown around on the table discussion that's inevitable e going to happen. you know the intervention riots was the u.n. mandate respected by by nature all in fact was that violates. questions about intervention always come up but i think we should focus on the longer term issues as you mentioned in your introduction it's really about building up societies building out viable political economic and social systems and i think too often people say well if the indian if intervention is wrong in some ways countries get out and you know let societies get on with their lives but you need support you know tradition societies need a lot of support and i can be both a message again from supporters so i think what we should be discussing is a longer term presence especially civil society actors who can help build up the potential in the capacity of transition countries now nato and russia don't know we
4:15 am
see eye to eye it's very not much of a secret but one thing they have been able to cooperate quite significantly on is afghanistan. what happens after afghanistan and what role do you think the collective security treaty organization could write what i think what will happen is that the wind down of military presence would inevitably be a destabilizing factor at first because of canister. isn't fully ready to cope with its own security problems and challenges so i think engagement again longer term engagement is crucial and i think any support for a more stable afghanistan will be welcome but it's mainly vidual countries russia of course being one of the main powers in the region but also perhaps other organizations collective security treaty organization is one shanghai cooperation organization is another one i think the there's engagement and all the rest so it is and i don't think nato anyone should be worried about this of course afghanistan
4:16 am
has to ultimately decide you know what kind of support it wants. the afghan people have to be at the center of this but i think support from regional powers and all of the actions is crucial. well for a better country but not as part of the united kingdom there's a strong sense of national identity in wales which has helped fuel calls for him to achieve independence something similar a following similar cause for the north. played continues raging over whether welsh are driven by economic sense or emotion. welcome to wales part of the u.k. and a proud nation with its own language and customs and the latest voice to call for independence plied comrie which means the party of wales has always argued the country could be better off without the u.k. and it seems increasing numbers are starting to see their point of view our economy has been run from london with the interest of the south east of england to the full
4:17 am
and independent wheels of course would be able to chart a different course. priorities wales is a long way from declaring independence but it's no longer just a pipe dream people here voted overwhelmingly earlier this year in favor of handing the welsh assembly full law making powers that was considered a turning point in welsh nationhood and plights couldn't read the party of wales have undoubtedly taken heart from the surprise victory of the scottish national party that victory in may the s.n.p. an outright majority in the scottish parliament which have many powers devolved from westminster the party's promise to hold a scotland wide referendum on whether to declare independence according to applied comrie that marks the turning of the tide for a unified u.k. people now believe that beginning to to use the word independence in in a welsh context which they they they wouldn't have done
4:18 am
a few years and i stuck to be developed so i think that people in where's going to see that when scotland becomes independent the next logical step back is for becoming dependent. of course separatism is nothing new to the british isles and the thousands of victims of the troubles in northern ireland are testament to how high feelings can run both in the present day and for centuries past while national sentiment may not be a new phenomenon the reasons for its have changed over the years and in these current turbulent economic times money talks scotland has oil and gas but while wales was a proud coal producing nation it's mines and now closed and it's got some of the highest unemployment levels in the u.k. because of that the older generation is reserved when it comes to independence but young people are filled with national fervor for them independence is less about
4:19 am
money and more about nationhood and identity and wales needs to be independent because it is a great country and we do we do in it like. because we're really patriotic i think we're more patriotic than england we have a lot of culture here we should go to seem to be a bit better here at the moment you can get free prescriptions. education seems to be a bit better place comrie says it's going to build on that support providing not just emotional reasons why wales should be independent but concrete economic reasons too and it says wales does have resources particularly land and see for green energy if the scots vote for independence wales might not be far behind. cardiff. turning back now to our top story the german high court has just issued a ruling on the legality of bellows held the country's participation in the euro

4:22 am
expert marco gas which believes the west wants serbians to feel guilty for the whole of the yugoslavia war. well we know how those trials are going to go because the script for those trials has been written in advance but i think we need to look actually take a look at the real picture here of what parish which was accused of doing because he was accused in effect of crossing. illegally declared all the borders that had been declared by the spirit by the dictates of western governments particularly germany running the e.c. at the time and subsequently by the us of eight these these governments declared that you could start in border that no longer exist i would be replaced by borders smaller of the secession so this was at the expense of yugoslavia's largest people and i think there is an effort on the part of western governments to persuade the serbian public that in some way they are guilty absolutely for everything how they feel they deserve to be treated worse than the rest of the world but they should be punished that may should be imprisoned that their territory should be carved away
4:23 am
from them this is an attempt to psychologically brainwash the serbian people that they deserve what they get and what they get is going to be very bad sadly i don't see too much opposition so this policy on the part the serbian government which really has a responsibility which it has not exercised to say that the description of the war has been one sided biased and incorrect coming out later the controversial figure of another bosnian serb military leader on trial at the hague is investigating our xcel port. worldwide manhunt for him lance the truth it's genius. and one million new world was on the streets care. little for the west. minions in. general and the surge in the. muslim.
