12:31 pm
minister and presidential candidate for the next election vladimir putin gave to several the country's top t.v. channels and talks about why he chose to run for the kremlin again outlines the political and economic course he thinks is best for russia. good afternoon good afternoon i'm open to your questions. just defeats in the recent convention of the you know it it russia party made the political situation in the country much clearer just a couple of weeks ago we had a chance to discuss that with russian president dmitry medvedev today we wanted to ask you the questions which we believe are of interest to our fellow citizens the first one was voiced both by your supporters and skeptics why are you returning to the kremlin russia is clearly yeah i'm aware of the wave of questions and comments in this regard that appeared on the internet in online and print media and here's
12:32 pm
what i would like to say as i've mentioned many times it does first russian president but he's yeltsin said i never aspired to his position it's a well known fact initially when this offer was made i explicitly expressed doubts over my ability to handle such a huge workload and enormous responsibility for the fate of the nation but once i take up a job i do my best to complete it or at least to yield maximum results. there are people who as you mentioned the criticize me and dmitri medvedev they say that if your humble servant takes part in the election that would mean that there would be no election at all perhaps that would be the case for them with an ordinary citizen always has a choice to make so our critics might see it their own way but in this case they ought to present their platform and what's more important not only present it but also to prove in practice that they can do this job better there are others who say that we're in for a period of stagnation similar to the time when soviet leader leonid brezhnev was in power. i do not want to sound too critical there were indeed many achievements
12:33 pm
but in fact i do not recall any of the post-war soviet leaders who would be as hardworking as myself or the incumbent president dmitri medvedev i don't remember any at. you know they couldn't. they couldn't do their physical condition and a lack of understanding of what needed to be done they might well have gone something they didn't have a clue or enough will for that we can also refer to the experience of other countries i didn't try to hold on to power and you know it perfectly well although i could have easily taken advantage of the constitutional majority of the ruling united russia party to amend the constitution but i stop short of that i didn't change the constitution to suit one man only myself i wanted people to see that there would be no tragedy in a natural change of power ok let's turn to other countries up to the end of the second world war the us didn't have any limits on the number of presidential terms . yes frankly in the recent it was elected three tell us four times or do it that
12:34 pm
or prior to that some u.s. presidents ran for a third time but if i'm not mistaken none of the attempts was successful except for franklin roosevelt and was elected president four times running he stood at the helm throughout the ordeals of economic depression and the second world war and was elected four times because his policies were effective. but the exact number of terms and years in power do not really matter helmut kohl spend sixteen years in power in west germany he wasn't president but his post was actually the most important executive job in the country the same goes for one of the former canadian prime ministers look at post-war france or a president could have been elected for seven years without a limit on the number of terms it was just recently that france introduced amendments into its constitution and cut it down to no more than two five year terms very similar to what we have in russia you know what does that mean when a country is facing difficult and hard times when it's recovering from
12:35 pm
a crisis and getting back on its feet if these pillars of stability including in politics that play a vital role here anyway actually. mr putin you talk a lot about stability but stability has its negative sides as it sometimes results in nation wide stagnation how do you feel about the lack of staff rotation in the government some ministers have not and you could use g.p.s. results over their terms in office it was a series of failures do you think the fact they are still in office might be a sign of a standstill in the country you know what else they should have their frequent reshuffles in the government or a sign of weakness the indicates that officials are either incapable or unwilling to accept personal responsibility they keep passing it around like a hot potato you do you have to try everything you can to make it official work before you decide to dismiss him one more thing when we choose people for certain jobs we always try to make a good thought out choice does not always work out perfectly of course and in these
12:36 pm
cases we are forced to let people go this is true about. some of the still the best way to avoid too much of a standstill in your staff policy is to get rid of some of your old allies who are no longer working efficiently your predecessors gorbachev and yeltsin they never hesitated to drop off the ballot this is actually the reason why. politicians especially notable political figures are always essentially alone can rule the gold and winston churchill spoke of this do you perhaps feel the need to let go of some of the people you've been working with in past years alternatively will things go a different way which is perhaps easier to envision in russia with current kremlin residents moving to the white house and vice versa resulting in no changes him and if there are things and so it was a demotion there loneliness is not related to staff policy it has nothing to do with appointments and reshuffles it is there would let me tell you what causes that prominent political figures cannot let anyone near themselves they're not allowed
12:37 pm
to favor certain people over others if the seasons cannot be based on personal sympathies and they have to be based on professional impartial analysis and the will to take responsibility if at the same time we cannot go to extremes there has to be a degree of succession in power we cannot start by playing games we can't go and dismiss the parliament just because someone on television or some print journalist said we have to that would not be serious we have to look at the people who are making their third or fourth attempts result problems they've been working on and if they're tired with their performance was adequate we have to find some other place where they can apply their efforts talent and experience once their positions are open we bring in new people with fresh ideas and motivation to implement them this is what we're planning to do we have a lot to learn from the great politicians you mentioned they each had plenty of experience in politics i would even say they were philosophers as well as politicians the goal had
12:38 pm
a lot of different things he's one of my favorite figures in politics who are professionally connected to france so you might know the saying of his always choose the hardest way you'll never find rivals there or with what you can call. up mr peet in western countries did not react strongly to a decision to run for president at the upcoming elections they said it was russia's internal affair and as an. put it they were ready to work with any legitimately elected president you must understand however that politically western states and city you a hawk how do you feel about that and what is going to happen to the reset of russian u.s. relations which exists as an idea but there is not many signs that it's working. yes well the hawk is a good bird but you are certainly no doubt of. i am a man and i do not like cliches our foreign policy in the past and today was thought out and aimed at creating a favorable environment for russia's development this means we want to have
12:39 pm
friendly relations with all of our partners naturally we have and always will defend our national interests but we have always been regard full of others when we did it and we plan to maintain that in future with a regularly ok with. mr posen you just mentioned the economy and the crisis it looks like there is another storm brewing stock markets are tumbling and people say there is only so much the traders themselves can do is emerging markets are losing capital the same is true about russia i recently read an article that said the governments needed a new program to counter the next crisis a program that would be like a good skirt on a girl short and offering an attractive perspective it would supposedly that would help win back businesses trust and stop the crisis what does your government have such a program. you know if we keep talking about the fall of the stock market indexes they might never recover russia will grow by four percent this year which is satisfactory china will grow by nine percent which is
12:40 pm
a good result we have to push for six to seven percent economic growth we managed to deliver that in the pre-crisis years and we will try to do it again as i have said before we will of course try to make our economy more open there are fears however especially in the light of russia's w t o accession that opening it too much might harm it returning to your metaphor a short skirt loose. some women while others are better off wearing something else . because of the longer skirts and yes other clothes from that point of view i believe we have managed to make ourselves safe from unpleasant surprises as we negotiated on russia's w t o x action essentially entire branches of russia's economy are going through a long transition period i'll say it again however we only need make our final decision when all of the failsafe clauses that we might need to protect our economic interests at one point or another are in place. which would be
12:41 pm
a good percentage for united russia or in these elections. you're trying to get a political forecast out of me. that it's causing i'm not asking for any numbers i just ask you what result you will be satisfied with in their eyes here united russia has to remain the leading political party in the country and the parliament that would be a good result. would have put it that way thank you very much for this talk mr putin i believe we are finished with the day a simple thank you. if

thought into this was that i had. crashed tributes pouring in as british driver dan wheldon dies of thirty three in. las vegas in the three hundred. eight went out injuring it says going to moscow missed several key players as they had to hold the leaders drugs on a small french champions league match. and three is going on by andy murray unseats roger federer to go to the world rankings of the kitchen and country the titles are taking over shanghai. but first tributes are pouring in for a two time indy car champion dan weldon has died at the age of thirty three and horrific crash during the last race of the season in las vegas fifteen cars were involved in the pileup in the first leg of the circuits forty year history despite drivers expressing fears about the speed of the track english from the worlds and
12:47 pm
was at the back of the pack and was working his way through the thirty four car field but it's just minutes into the race two cars touch and world and couldn't avoid the pileup which was devastating two cars were airborne including weldon's which flew over another vehicle and landed in a counterbalance the top of the screen during practice drivers had raised concerns about the pace of the last vegas track with speeds topping three hundred sixty kilometers per hour and this crash took out nearly half the cars well then was airlifted to hospital but died from his injuries two hours later leaves a wife and two young sons the race was cancelled although drivers returned to the track to give a five lap tribute to the driver world and her new from england's two americas a follow his racing dream and have won the indy five hundred for a second time in may he was also in line for a fight. million dollar payout if we won this race fellow drivers have been paying their respects. you know we can put so much pressure on ourselves to to win races
12:48 pm
and championships that's what we love to do. and that's what we live for and then days like today doesn't really matter if you know we. we lost last we lost a good friend and i think everybody in indy car series. considered dan a friend of mine you saw the reaction there used as one of those. special special people this is a very different war at all. which was every day in the normal life as well but. you know you don't think about it. think about it. more for the world my best friends. now let's move on to football and cisco will have to make do with a much depleted bench for their vital champions league match in moscow on tuesday as none of the russian flags injured players will be fit in time for the home game against a club sensible japan midfielder it is simply honda and it's like a vessel from every shilling or among those still sideline despite regime training
12:49 pm
however the long injury list has taken its toll on those say worth it as many of the first team are also regulars in the crowd because russia's squad this caron bottoming going to be with just one point from the two i think games so a win against surprise leaders tribes and sprawl who have four points is paramount and could give the army men a much sought after morale boost following saturday's disappointing to all domestic draw one hundred to wreck. the work of all the world from normal you don't forget matches like easily. which is a national game in the champions league so we have to raise our spirits and we don't use the perfect we have do. wells where english league leaders announced the city are in a similar positions it's a stand ahead of their home game against me they are in group a now mind you inside have taken just one point from two games and have selection problems up front with mario balotelli suspended and big summer signing thank you i were struggling with
12:50 pm
a groin injury but they are bringing up the rear with zero points in green bay city manager about a month cheney still expects a stern test to be out of because they play football very well but for us it is very important and i think it is not important if you're playing away or not. if you're prepared we're all in this game and they're going if we win this game. after going over there is from come from. naples but after i think they're going to care if we can we know a little bit more it's possible we have a chance of being meanwhile group d. leaders re-arm madrid will put their leading position on the line with a host french side. on tuesday the visitors are two points behind so could propel themselves into the driver's seat if they win at the go about our one of just three teams with a one hundred percent record so far in the group stages but managers in marino is not afraid to lose it. it's not easy to win every game in the champions league so
12:51 pm
it will be no great drama if we don't get winning results were top action and points which makes us the best place team to win big rupe but first of all we have to qualify and only after that we'll think about we have a group. now meanwhile in the russian premier league rubin won three nil it's time to spartak moscow on sunday to gain a confidence boosting victory ahead of thursday's you rightly clash of well winning his and came despite a long injury list and has moved the home side at the sixth in the table but he has never took the lead through christian about eight minutes into the second half. and just four minutes later alexander found himself unlocked in the box to make it to no and into stoppage time we must not show finished off the resoundingly tree by adding a third so three nil it finished two rybin who are now just a point behind spotlight. meanwhile looking as if charge at the table also continues the moscow side and now four after meeting
12:52 pm
