some time while some criticize 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. you know if you think your views on russia's economic agenda differ from mine as president if you can resign fifty million votes the. sort of my opinions do differ from yours but only take such a decision after i've talked to the prime minister has been to almost absolute will still talk to whoever you want including the prime minister but as long as i'm the president making his decision it. was a surprise right now between the president and putin's longtime ally aleksey kudrin left many questioning is there a split in the tandem at the solution of the situation with mr cooper it is
7:06 am
a matter of discipline in government service we are a presidential republican opponent we want it implements the president's policy if you don't agree you should step down meanwhile maybe read it not as a sign of a split but i mean you maturity in russia's democracy i almost for more severe wishful thinking on the part of the portals of these people probably remember the perils of the whole world where there was a rift inside reported be will which ultimately was one of the reasons for the collapse of the u.s.s.r. i remember before coming to power it gave an interview where he basically said that russia will not survive. inside believes the big news of putin yet again running for president brought up so many questions that nutriment burdett had to to meet. t.v. hat still cross the t.'s and dot the ice. of course it's nice to know that people trust me as president and that my approval rating is quite high under current
7:07 am
circumstances we also know that prime minister putin really remains the most popular politician in our country at this point and his rating is even higher it's the election campaign has just started with a simple question what if our people reject us. and come to him with what will happen to these decisions by the convention was these decisions or merely the party's recommendation to vote for those people that saw the choices made by the people and these are not mere words you type solution true for any politician in any political field may lose an election but many questions are still in the air like why would a politician like nutriment that if his approval rating is still so high in russia not seek reelection and what will the face of the new cabinet of ministers look like under him should he become pm immediately after the united russia congress many rejoiced in the fact that the country's top political is finally over and they

7:14 am
winston churchill's quotes on this trying to tax your way out of a recession is like trying to lift yourself up in a pocket. they simply can't work and this soon as the politicians the bureaucrats never really else face 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 default thinking i what we need to do the rest of the european union the eurozone and indeed the i.m.f. is to help them in a stable controls default in the same way they must the forces argentina did in two thousand and two only without a complete and total collapse style in a structured way the your opinion isn't part of the solution here you european union is part of the problem it's the european union of the eurozone which has created this terrible cataclysmic problem so new is not part of the solution mr briggs so least of all but sometimes it's easier for governments to stifle protest

7:19 am
a cold gas if you told us here at r.t. that nato moved in the cause of only to push his 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 national 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 albania project through which they see their own interest they see cambone still the biggest military base in the world having a permanent presence in the heart of europe for t.v. we were created completing that encircled of russia who is one of the serious aspects of a game plan that's what they're about they're about controlling the flow of oil and controlling the security of energy supplies through this the region they're about 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. and the greater albanian terrorists with a country because then the albanian maffia owed them big time that's the nato plan

a final of salt on kidnapping a lot of their chairman of the national transitional council also his fighters called a two day truce to let civilians leave however heavy rocket and mortar fire reportedly continues with nato planes roaring a professor of political science powers he says there is no victory for the revolutionaries or only. clearly what's happening right now is intervention under side. one group and its civil war. the winning side because. nato supported where you clearly want to walk and now are probably wants to make sure there is no internal opposition even though there are people who die because of nato military actions matter because it's very unlikely that the people responsible for these massacres could be called accountable by the international court of justice. the situation is that heating up in another rest of the region

palestine fosters hopes for a u.n. statehood israel is approving more settlements on occupied territory coming up just a little bit later today a special report about israeli peace activists who are taking a stand against their own country's policy which they see as illegal for a preview. very first verses of the bible all human beings are created. in god's image doesn't say just jews or god who is. sixty seventy percent of what i did as a common soldier you have to pay territories to do with your turds doing what we call making our presence so we go out should some good so they hear a knock on some doors from to the other corner invade another. religion and nationalism not just judaism have been a part of the problem. part of what leads to. bloodshed

7:27 am
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 banning 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. doesn't necessarily mean more physical just means that the police to more powers and that's part of the wider problem but if you're restricted to a static instruction the police have a right to pen you in. a restroom very. small appliances or. these people behind me are amongst the lucky few they still can march just by
