and sudden departure of the or trusted finance minister has dominated this week's news headlines this also prompted an unexpected interview with the president as he took the time to clarify his latest political moves but as our team reports the pre-election period in russia may hold even more surprises. i think this week's headlines have been that if hootin putin made that the news of the jumps was brought up polemic switch russia hasn't seen for quite some time while some criticised others applauded the tandems deal and the kings of photo shop rolled out some of their best work yet with the general mood being that the deal had been done long ago but it was an exciting for just a few days until the first rich shuffles in the corridors of power began. if you think your views on russia's economic agenda is different from mine as president if you can resign. my opinions do differ from your own only take such

rushing to intervene in the greek crisis officials are offering solutions that will only make matters worse and that's the opinion of british. you cannot tax your way out of recession or despair depression is simply isn't possible and the great winston churchill's quote on this trying to tax your way out of a recession is like trying to lift yourself up in a bucket by the handle they simply come from the cern is the politicians the bureaucrats nobody else faced the truth of this crisis the sooner we can start to get out of it people are beginning to understand that they will be better off by defaulting what we need to do the rest of the european union the eurozone and indeed the i.m.f. is to help live in a stable control's default in the same way they must be fools

now a fighting chance of. ever says july's border dispute many lives have been dependent on this godforsaken grable road through the mountains now this is the only way that belgrade can use to deliver food and petrol to the tens of thousands of serbs living in northern kosovo the course of the serbs have been barricaded in the road since july in response to the kosovo police checkpoints which enforced the trade embargo between belgrade and on tuesday the situation turned critical again clashes between the barricading serbs and the k four troops led to multiple injuries on both sides ok for blame the cause for starting the violence but injured alexandre of each a father of two saw it differently. we were standing by the barricade when the soldiers started shouting and shooting at us i didn't know what they were shooting with so i got scared and started running away and i was hit on the shoulder and it

turned out to be a power for a chain wound of my lung a little bit nato forces also claimed they used only rubber bullets and tear gas against the protesting mauled this was quickly rejected by doctors in need of its fuelling speculation as to who remains started. to control. we have seven men in a critical condition gunshot wounds fractures and those who are not from rubber bullets not a single one of them had a rubber. delegation take us to the region on friday people she gave to the barricades serbs but they came too late to talk to trucks pulled up at the border crossing k four had already forced to the barricades how exactly nato troops managed to disregard the un's plans is unknown but they quickly set up at the limits to their weapons and journalists and issued should do q. . border for anyone trying to penetrate it nato is not definitely acting as an

occupying force there's no question about it they've totally and openly stepped out of the un mandate and they're really really now just like during one nine hundred ninety nine during the bombing when there was the air force for the albanian separatists. their infantry so they're not a peace factor at all they're total factor of war and this position belgrade has reacted with indignation and halted negotiations with kosovo until the dispute is resolved meanwhile gate for refuses to comment on their actions and bulldozed their border barricades the border is open now to serve trucks blocking a breach just speech is a way to destroy block suggest this battle is far from over banners like this one are scattered all across northern kosovo and they pretty much reflect the mood of the local serbs it seems they would never give in and accept the fact that they're living in a self-proclaimed state and in this book kenyan melting board nobody knows where
1:17 am
this standoff go and in the mind of the troops or become yet another frozen territorial dispute let's see or sense to see reporting from kosovo balkans political expert mark told r.t. that nato moved into cost of only to push its own interests and keep a military presence in the region. i do hope that the international criminal court will will have a look at least since the special criminal court claims to be very interested in the way civilians are treated i hope that they won't make an exception for western powers in the way they treat civilians they've decided who they want to sponsor they want to sponsor the greater albanian project through which they see their own interest they see camp bondsteel the biggest military base in the world having a permanent presence in the heart of europe for t.g. please look ated completing that encircled of russia which is always one of the serious aspects of a game plan that's what they're about they're about controlling the flow of oil controlling the security of energy supplies through this the region they're about
1:18 am
control nato is about control of territory and control of resources that's why they can stay on the side of those whose country it was not they will reward the organ stealers and the great albanian terrorists with the country because then the albanian maffia owed them big time that's the nato plan. and i will keep you updated on the tense situation in the region but again always watch the latest videos from there on our you tube channel so you'll find there all the latest news features interviews and analysis and you can also give us your feedback by the comment section and that's all at youtube dot com slash our.

1:23 am
a loss on that and the thing about the the role of the international community no could be making things worse not simply by bombarding the city but boy actually having made such a fuss about civilians being injured or even by the leader hafiz but by saying that if given the khadafi forces a real offensive to keep keep those civilians in the city probably a good. many of them would like to get out of there no. effect as they become a kind of shield by which the they can they can stay there for a high on for a bit longer. and find more stories comments and videos on you tube weapon our website or rather our t.v. dot com fields of despair thousands of farmers in india take their own lives devastated by a one of the driest seasons in decades. one activist group speaks out against what they say are you a first glance to make ukraine a destination for sex tourists you are and euro two thousand and twelve their

tactic topless protest. the right to protest is something the u.k. has long upheld and a fan of but now as the british government slaps a month long marching band on several london districts there are those who argue that civil liberties are under attack or am it has more. the view of workers activists on the home office ban on marching is clear. in this country through september in six areas of london anyone marching like these people did last winter is liable to be arrested and fined or even imprisoned.
1:25 am
the ban was prompted by plans by the anti muslim english defense league here in luton in february to march through tower hamlets the area with the highest concentration of muslims in the country but instead of banning one march one day the home office banned all marches in six baros for an entire month activist richard seymour sees a wider motive. doesn't necessarily mean to say that march isn't going to happen it just means that. more powers and that's part of the wider problem but if you're restricted to a static demonstration the police have a right to. arrest very. small fences or fences these people behind me are amongst the lucky few they still can march just by pure accident of geography where hit in lumberton which is not one of the six affected by the ban but if as many fear the government extend and widen the ban
1:26 am
to take in more parts of london the scenes that you see behind me both small and large marches through london and many other cities across the country could be a thing of the past the band comes hot on the heels of widespread rioting in many english cities in august it also coincides with the introduction of government austerity measures which some say amounts to the dismantling of the entire welfare state many say public fear of civil unrest is being manipulated to prevent unions from turning out to protest fierce cuts and pat. reagan from the workers revolutionary party says it's just the tip of the iceberg to the talking about area curfews that talk about shutting down facebook social network sites they're talking about it or you know civil war measures because what they're doing in britain is creating a historic change in which inevitably. the majority of the population will oppose
1:27 am
them the home office can only stop marching it's powerless to prevent people from gathering but because organizations are just standing there you've got to be able to march to make a statement as the union did in march when more than a quarter of a million people turned out to protest because activists say that's exactly what the government's trying to stop just in terms of where we are at the moment in this country with the process of the stereotyping pushed through by the government trade unions or one of the major books opposed to the. public order legislation does tend to be used against striking workers i mean that's been very clear. there's been some recent examples of people being pulled off the picket lines not to obviously we can see any resistance to. freedom of expression and dissociation enshrined in u.k. and european law with the u.k. renowned for its powerful union organizations but the ban gives police the ultimate
