hootin putin knew that it and use of the japs was brought up a linux which 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 to move in them if you think your views on russia's economic agenda differ from mine as president and if you can resign should remove their votes that. my opinions do differ from yours but only take such a decision after a talk to the prime minister pursue. a civil state you can talk to whoever you want including the prime minister going the president making his decision it. was a surprise right now between the president and putin's longtime ally i exceed could rent left many questioning is there
a split in the tandem apostleship the situation with mr quadrant is a matter of discipline in government service we are a presidential republic not a parliamentary moment it implements the president's policy if you don't agree you should step down nina while many read it not as a sign of a split but only new maturity in russia's democracy i almost where most clear wish for thank you all the part i was our port au pair of these people probably remember the times for the whole world after all for there was a rift inside the point of view which ultimately was one of the reasons for the collapse of your society i remember before coming to power and read it gave an interview where he basically said russia will not survive another conflict inside believes the big news of putin yet again running for president brought up so many questions let me trim it that if i had to to need. t.v. hats to cross the t.'s and dot. the course it's nice to know that people trust me
as president and that my approval rating is quite high so you can stand still we also know the prime minister putin undoubtedly remains the most popular politician in our country and his rating is even a viable. election campaign has just started. a simple question which one of our people rejected it. and committed by well who have plans of these decisions by the convention these decisions are merely the party's recommendation to both of those people that's all. made by the people showing us and these are not mere words you have saluting troops but any politician any political feels mean losing the election but many questions are still in the air like why would a politician like nixon in bed if it was approval rating is still so high in russia not seek reelection and look to move the piece of the new cabinet of ministers look like under him should he become pm immediately after the united russia maybe
rejoiced in the fact that the country's top political coup is is finally over and they can go about their usual business but this week has shown that when it comes to the chess game the process and politics there are many more moves to be made before the final make up of the new government is no it's to do that show up on our t.v. . just off the president if you ever showed a finance minister. fears a rose that could throw the russian economy into a stock nation however long and base to russia martin corry thinks the country has the potential to overcome lots of financial hurdles. russia is a pretty good economic situation present if you look at play all revenues if you look at gas if you look at goal. which heals diamonds and so on russia is a very strong position. in the world isn't really affecting russia really so far
because it has reserves of over four hundred billion dollars. it can take some of the things but at present economic situation is. quite good because the i.m.f. is expecting something like four percent growth this year which is vastly superior to the european union america. without turning over power for you in the program here future of palestine is clouded in intrigue the shadow of an imminent u.s. veto hanging over it straight who'd been at the u.n. security council. and a drug czar for the overthrow of president hosni mubarak we'll look at whether gyptian managed to get what they were fighting for. at least as seven hundred people have been arrested for a police crackdown on the ongoing and so you wall street demonstrations in new york dubbed the occupy wall street movement they say they're protesting against the tremendous influence and misdeeds of corporations and billionaires are things going
for knight has their story this clash and confrontation between and why he gave the new york city police department and thousands of protesters took on the brooklyn bridge the police showed up and out basically cornered off both sides of the brooklyn bridge and started to move in on the protesters to make arrests that's when things got ugly to say the least the protesters were were banging drums and chanting the whole world was watching police moved in they were having wagons brought to the scene and things are very physical and this is just the most recent incident that is taking place in new york in the cost weeks last weekend we saw demonstrators that needs to know these five police officers police officers using adding to our rights demonstrators that have been camped out on wall street now these protesters have been demonstrating for about two weeks this is
a group occupy wall street a group of americans that have called on all those that are frustrated over the u.s. economy over the fact that people are losing their jobs people can't get their jobs people are struggling to find money to to make ends meet and these americans are now saying this is their their american spring and there are they are planning to stay down there through the end of the year and i can tell you this need i lete this group of demonstrators that you know it's not my wall street this group is getting bigger and bigger there's no doubt about that. reporting right there well we have plenty more from new york at her you tube dot com slash artsy and the latest pitches to a firsthand account for future clashes with police across let us know what you think on the issue was what is discussed the news with others as the protests attract more attention we look at just what you will in the growing up.
just in time it is past the hour here in moscow this is the brinkley end game is rapidly approaching for greece as its government admits that it only has the cash to pay its bills for eight more days after which the only option is default in response to the e.u. that kicked its bureaucratic machine into gear in an all out effort to release more cash math and science president nicolas sarkozy admits that the much criticized bailout approach is of the blocks last line of defense and preventing the crisis
from consuming the eurozone. germany's angela merkel also announced a meeting in the coming days to finalize a radical expansion of the blocks emergency cash flow because artists are a fertile. yet come to nothing as the greek economy crumbles under the weight of unprecedented auster. greece has been the place the child of the year. with journey baiting to expand the. country looks that's to get that much needed cash injection help come on condition hearing people say the price they're being made to pay them for the new high earning that. is deadline day for the first to be hit with the greek government's new special tax it's one of the measures they kiss in place to try to secure the next tranche of money the country needs to bankruptcy the extra tax cuts about another three percent for people. supposed to help like some of the
think that the budget nothing more than a year's salary cuts rises in living costs people here breaking points the last two years almost nobody. is from the opposition even in title pay he tells me how the media expanded rapidly in recent months as more and more people hit the financial wall before. most of the people were wrong because they wanted to protest against the unjust situation no there are thousands and thousands and thousands of people who will not wait because when we first peoples desperation has become increasingly evident on the streets of greece the violence is repeatedly play can out between via place and protest as she states through even more clashes this parliament and feted yet another of. the soul
of any property tax where organizing all of this. to put greece on the area may have just for political reasons greece and british do not need the i.m.f. many people increase now question just here it is i think control unfortunately today very a leaders in euro zone are the bankers. he's mr. bunker so. he. called again and again and again. despite germany having baited positively to expand the size and power of the year panned out to fund critics are questioning whether that will be enough concise now turn to the many challenges. still faces the problem will move from. other european countries and then the german banks.
even germany. will be you know. will be affected find a solution not just for the european union. measures failing to have the facts in this political leaders continue to struggle to convince that public interest here is a still hangs in the balance but these place has. to continue many people hate it greece is a country now at risk of having not only a financial democratic deficit as well. as the public building in athens. we you may be throwing billions in athens to prop up its economy and create the appearance of stability but the greek crisis has now grown too big to be contained that's according to a. sociology professor. i think that the big question facing us
today is not whether we are going to default but how we are going to pay for it i mean all the maser thinking by this throw it up by the european union the it's a b. and b. i.m.f. . one way or the other to some sort of default some sort of mind that's the fault but these new forces going to. buy new us even cancer or stare at the mess of some sort of social model but is give us a sort of there of the productive capacity of this country i mean this is a vicious circle we have to default on our own terms which means the immediate stop of the payment for the death immediate exit of greece from the euro zone from the euro. sometimes it's easier for governments to impose a ban rather than listen to the public following a summer of demonstrations londoners find themselves gagged by their own government
for a large chunk of the city is hit by a protest for. the future of the week's top stories here on r.t. and violence flared up again over the past several days around kosovo's northern border as nato troops attempted to dismantle roadblocks local serbs don't recognize the pristina administration as a legitimate authority and i've barricaded roads to disputed checkpoints that albanians seems to only have with the help of k. four troops i want you to look see i was asking went to kosovo to witness the title . in some parts of the world this walk the road would probably be part of an extreme safari possible it is now a point. ever since july is 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 for the tens of thousands of serbs living in northern kosovo the course of the serbs have been very good in the road
since july in response to the cost of the police checkpoints which in force the trade embargo between belgrade and the meter itself on tuesday the situation turned critical again clashes between the barricading serbs and the k. four troops led to multiple injuries on both sides k. four blame the course of the serbs for starting the violence but danger to alex on the beach a father of two saw it differently especially if. 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 perforating wound of my lung nato forces also claimed they used only rubber bullets and tear gas against the protesting mob this was quickly rejected by doctors in need of its fuelling speculation as to who restarted. from forty seven men and have a condition gunshot wounds fractures and bruises there were not one from rubber
bullets not a single of them had a rubber all those wounds were caused by a regular bullet which we extract from their bodies dilatation. eternal life. ever gave the serbs but they came late i could see their trucks pulled up at the border crossing before had already forced the barricades how exactly nato troops managed to disregard the un's plans is unknown but they quickly set up a perimeter to the web. that journalists and he should shoot to kill the order for anyone trying to demonstrate that they've totally and openly stepped out of the un mandate and there really really now just like during one nine hundred ninety nine during the bombing when they were the air force for the albanian separatists are now acting as their infantry so this is what we have this is a clear breach of the un charter and of the resolution twelve forty four it's totally destroyed their standing as any sort of mediator belgrade has reacted with
indignation and halted negotiations with kosovo until the dispute is resolved meanwhile paid for refuses to comment on their actions and goes to the border barricades the breeder is open now to serve trucks blocking a breach just meters away to destroy block suggest this battle is far from over better is 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 a melting pot nobody knows where this standoff go and the. troops are becoming yet another frozen territorial dispute let's see or sense the sea reporting from kosovo . meantime peace analyst john laughlin says the situation because of a remained relatively calm but is until the e.u.
stepped. it's the european union and the nato so-called peacekeepers or other enforcers who have caused this problem the kosovo issue the situation in the north of kosovo is what we call a frozen conflict in other words it's an under is old anomalous situation that has been relatively peaceful now for more than ten years and it seems that the european union is determined to make it not peaceful anymore in my view the powers of you next which is the european union body that sent the troops there to enforce the new customs regime i believe that you lex itself is illegal i take the view that it's the united nations which should be governing kosovo according to president bush until forty four and not you lex. and indeed i think one can make a case for saying that there are parallel structures now in kosovo the european union on one hand and the united nations on the other but legally speaking it
should be the united nations the european union itself in a state of advanced collapse why on earth is serbia trying to join it and why is serbia determined to sacrifice part of her own territory a very strict part of our territory for that girl that's the reality and i'm afraid of the situation we're in to improve until belgrade abandons this in my view suicidal goal of joining me here. you would r.t. live from moscow of course for more stories or comments on videos on our website and that's where you'll find everything at r.t. dot com and some of the items on our fields of despair thousands of farmers in india take their own lives devastated by one of the driest seasons in decade. and the pairing off for the great flood i know is our sales again thanks to a dutch family. all in case an emergency.
from. the week's top stories here on our team and a revolutionary euphoria in egypt back in february assumed give way to disillusionment with both the people and political forces dissatisfied with the way the country is being run after the regime of mubarak many feel let down by the transitional military council which has so far failed to implement promised democratic reform. now we went to cairo to find out more. we knew that change would come to egypt a new chapter called freedom and democracy your book by its cover when reading post mubarak egypt it's between the lines where you'll find a new chapter hasn't been published and it were slightly revised we still have the
sprinkles of the on porcelain those. have been. in any sense this country towards democracy we're a community gone but his policies are not personally mubarak's case is ongoing at this tribe you know new figures from human rights watch claims more civilian courts face military trials the last six months some twelve thousand during the entire thirty year rule of mubarak average civilians are giving five to you know seven years in prison a lot of torture has occurred since the staff has come into power. actor . doesn't clown around when it comes to the supreme council or scarf he has taken part in protests since day one and still has scars from being detained because the books are much worse i use a very long they told me go ahead to stick it holy for
a minute but after that i shot for the struggle and peter with the pats on the head i was released only because i'm well known now most of the last to leave the country for thirty years according to law if i have to seek asylum stay and fight for freedom like mubarak skaf gets the support it needs to rule egypt from brawn to the aid that we get from the u.s. that one point five billion a year the easier to seize from from the usa. most of it entirely goes to the to the supreme court to the to the army or the scouts and what the westboro. history books will change for the better the arab spring is a massive opportunity to spread peace prosperity democracy egypt actions are left reading the writing on the wall in many areas it's the same as before don't want a paper on it and getting more worse and he's now
a r t kyra. a special admissions committee of the u.n. security council has held its first meeting over the fate of the palestinian statehood but it was put forward for consideration just this week with a membership application review period expected to take several weeks a total of nine out of fifteen votes in the security council and needed to push the application through with no veto being cast at the same time at this stage and especially if america will try to stall the process u.s. lawmakers have already blocked hundred million dollars in aid to the palestinian authority allegedly as collective punishment for the bit among the international bodies endorsing the european parliament which called the palestinian quest for statehood legitimate meanwhile israel has yet again come under fire from much of the well after approving more settlements on occupied palestinian territory a senior official told us here at r t the unconditional us support remains
a major factor behind israel's behavior. israel has declared. that it's going to construct one thousand one hundred settlement units in jerusalem and this is actually a total erosion of the international really bring back the two sides to the negotiating table even by countries that has said that jewish settlements in the but as you know through that is are an obstacle to peace they are not legitimate and so on we ask them today the european union the united states israel is announcing these supplements what are you going to do about it so i think this is the question for the international community there israel is a very every day violating. international legitimacy by your own. admission the question is what is it that the international community is doing about it we hope that the international community does not wanted you to deal with
israel as a spoiled kid or be one of washington and some european capitals. you with r.t. live from moscow now the right to protest is something the u.k. has long up held and defend it but now it was the british government slaps a month long marching band on several london districts there are those who argue that civil liberties are under attack artie's law or emmett investigates. the view of workers activists on the home office ban on marching is clear it's an attack on the basic democratic rights 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. the ban was prompted by plans by the anti muslim english defense league seen here in luton in february to march through tower hamlets the area with the highest concentration of muslims
in the country but instead of planning one march on one day the home office banned all marches in six bars for an entire month activist richard seymour sees a wider motive once the violence pastor doesn't necessarily mean to say that marches in just means that. more powers and that's part of the wider problem that if you're restricted to a static demonstration the police are right to pen you in. a restroom very. small purses or non-offensive these people behind me are amongst the lucky few they still can march just by pure accident of geography we're here in lumberton which is not one of the six affected by the battle but if as many fear the government extend and widen the plan 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
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 so the talk in that area could use it to know about shutting down facebook social network sites they're talking about it or your civil war measures because what they're doing in britain is creating a historic change in clinching inevitably. the majority of the population will oppose them freedom of expression and association in shrines in the u.k. and european law with the u.k. renowned for its powerful union organizations but the ban gives police the ultimate
power to step in and arrest demonstrators merely for exercising their rights to speak out against the government and that's a dangerous precedent to set a bit arty london. art of those is a weekly or an art so you were coming to you live from moscow if you stick around for a few moments we'll be back with a recap of the week's top stories.
