2:01 pm
helos eleven pm tuesday night here in moscow this is our names kevin owen and first it's in a storage day for western europe's energy supply which is now being bolstered by russian gas directly through a brand new pipeline president dmitri medvedev chancellor angela merkel and their partners in a project to turn the valve that open the receiving end of the north streamline in germany the ten billion dollar scheme is the longest subsea grassroot in the world now bush was at the scene of an old stream which it will provide long term energy security for europe which had been affected by previous transit rails with the likes of ukraine and belarus it will also fill a shortfall in gas which is projected to reach some one hundred million homes by twenty thirty now this is a europe wide project why european leaders are here is because french dutch german companies energy firms have taken stakes in the north stream pipeline that will guarantee supply to homes in those countries for the next fifty years at least the
2:02 pm
lifetime of this current project there are plans to send this gas on to berlin and then on to the existing european network on to countries like the united kingdom as world is that is that with these russia is always going to great lengths to fulfill its energy obligations because it's our highest priority we will continue to supply our european partners without interruption in the future in order to attract more investment for the project i'm convinced that such involvement will minimize risks along the entire energy supply chain. but you know this should also provide cheaper gas for homes in europe with no transit fees to be paid for the likes of ukraine and belarus with gas going direct for the first time from russia to the e.u. german chancellor angela merkel is optimistic about the future relations between russia and the european union. when speaking about energy supply security we also speak about diversification and russia is one of our most in. fourteen partners
2:03 pm
this loss is of supply have to be safe and the demand from europe is also guaranteed we need russian gas for the economic development of our continent and this means that we will be closely linked to each other for decades to come. it is the longest subsidy pipeline the gas pipeline in the world it took some engineering brilliance just for one example compress the stations which keep the pressure in gas pipelines usually there are several across the route this one just has as one of the beginning of the route it's been planned since the nineteen nineties construction did start a few years ago a second line will come on stream next year and we've just spoken to some of the heads of the of the project who say that a third line will be discussed by shareholders very shortly because they expect demand for gas to grow and to keep growing even through this crisis the euro crisis that we're seeing to keep growing through the e.u. in the coming years. and the journalist release says europe's come to rely on russia as its main source of gas supply because the supply is always been
2:04 pm
accessible and reliable there is an overriding view within europe that diversification is important and i miss the search of spain that we heard echoed for many many years now but when they live it is generally recognized in europe and i don't think know some dissenting voice really anywhere in europe that russia is now and always will be a principal provider of gas to the european continent indies simply a vast repository of natural gas resources eighty's on europe's eastern border it has a very stable won't turn gas supply relationships you're in country so on and nobody's looking really to supplant russian gas what europe wants to do is to ensure that gas comes from other places why are the routes in addition to russian gas but not instead of it. and the chairman of the north stream project
2:05 pm
former german chancellor gerhard schroeder told us that r t why the pipeline so important for the russian your relationship it's a brief preview of the interview that's coming up in just over an hour's time. the european union needs russia geopolitical is learned but the reverse is also true of it's not a question of time has come to start cooperating and so looking back i'm going to be logical differences are new issues in a situation where you could ship gas to china. and europe you know i hope russia never has to make a russian government is evidently pro european or europe or canada keep pushing your sure way it hurts russians pride if you we have to keep in mind for all russia has the alternative of shipping to egypt with europe has new such alternative europe's geopolitical position in the levy fruit or if it manages to enter a tight partnership with russia and at the same time grant you a session. or that would be a sound strategy again or into the future the rest easier to belittle name.
2:06 pm
russia's called the release of the un's atomic watchdog report on iran as inappropriate he says that the new findings suggest iran has been working on developing nuclear weapons and has credible evidence to prove it iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad's criticized the report and said to run and won't stop its peaceful nuclear development now this comes as the russian president warned that motorists rhetoric in the middle east could lead to a catastrophic war in the region russia's be voicing strong words against any attack on iran following statements by israel that a strike is more likely than diplomacy u.s. foreign policy expert barbara slaven from the atlantic council discussion group says action against around the mine diplomatic efforts. obviously the israelis are very very worried about iran and what iran would do but i think they also understand that the consequences of a strike could actually be worse for israel then. allowing iran to proceed on this
2:07 pm
this path hezbollah has forty thousand rockets that it could unleash some of them can reach tel aviv hamas might attack israel would be even more isolated in the region of course it's very isolated already because of developments in the arab spring i don't think the united states would be pleased the french have said they don't want this and in the strength of the campaign against iran is building an international consensus against iran having nuclear weapons and that would be shattered by by a military strike at this time at a time when israel's threatening iran with military action confidence of the strength of the jewish states army is crucial but every year more and more israelis the seeking ways to try to avoid conscription choosing to defend themselves rather than the country paula sit next reports on why the young generation is turning its back on military service. for years it's been the cornerstone of the country's security but these days there's a real risk these radio defense forces could be left defenseless conscription is at
2:08 pm
an all time you know about fifty percent of recently jewish males who. serve in the military moneyball khana spent most of the year and a half he was in the army trying to convince his superiors to release him on medical grounds they eventually did but only after he'd wasted months searching around he says doing nothing while in uniform get drafted for a. because of this feeling that it would be. if i wouldn't and a couple months later i realized that i just couldn't take part in longer in what's called the israel defense forces which has nothing to do with the fence other than my name and a growing number of israelis agree with him mr friedman made sure she scored low on her army entrance tests so instead of serving as a soldier she's now doing civil service working as an art instructor in a center for the mentally disabled i have our fans in the army and they saw. how they were when they first came to them in how they are now and it's
2:09 pm
a lot of brainwashing actually and they just keep you down from your identity and make you basically a soldier ten years ago they refusenik movement started in israel youngsters refusing to serve in the army on political grounds add to that the nearly fifteen percent of potential draftees who don't serve because of religious reasons and a recent series of scandals also so public trust in the military decline state. is . this video posted on you tube says a true israeli doesn't evade the truth in other words a true israeli avoids conscription fifteen or twenty years ago an advert like this would have been unthinkable in those days and not serving in the army was something shameful but now young. have role models like actively in order to copy former girlfriend israeli model barbara faily who evaded service and gave it legitimacy
2:10 pm
violations of human rights. are by israel's absolute disrespect of international law it's crystal clear there's no question about it studies show that by twenty twenty the number of military age jewish israelis who will not be serving will be the highest ever the growing train has the military worried it won't have the troops it needs especially now as the region heats up and the army needs all the soldiers it can get. r.t. tel aviv developing news story for you tonight the italian prime minister says he will resign after parliament passes economic reforms required by the e.u. that could take place as early as next week so about a scholarly earlier one a crucial budget vote but then lost his majority support after a piece debated public finances experts warn the political turmoil generally could tip its a lead towards even greater instability the country is moving closer to the center of europe's financial crisis with debts piling up with borrowing costs continue to
2:11 pm
rocket as well let's talk about this to appear candid with contemporary a tally of history at the university of reading their garroting is probably agree to code the studio in london for us live very good to see what i see tonight thanks for taking the time to be with us and give us your thoughts. are very good evening love you see i just updated our viewers there on this latest bit of news we got tonight so that the prime minister therefore has offered the harder it is in his resignation do you think as no telling yourself it will be enough to solve your country's problems. no i definitely think that's not enough i think that it's very naive to fall the entire political debate. i think the counter is going to have a very difficult time and what is required is a say a serious political debate on what kind of measure. one to take to tackle the krises it's not much about risk or any on my i mean we all know it's
2:12 pm
a. colorful character etc but is this really the right time for me to go is this an italian power tug of war more than an actual look for a decent replacement capable of steering italy out of this awful crisis that appears to be facing well i think that actually talian people in caves should watch and the side what their replacements should be rather than. being down through parliamentary gimmicks i think that should have stepped down at least one year ago or and yes been able to survive just because the corruption and the bribery in italian parliament is so widespread that these has been possible but honestly i think that's what is required is serious change and serious change can come just through going back to people and asking them. to build a new school and he should be i wanted to ask you as well about this bit of news we had today the italian government's borrowing rate has soared up to the record six
2:13 pm
point seven four percent for a while today dangerous for the economy they say don't worry that if it gets to seven percent it's real trouble ahead. yes that's dangerous but it's true actually fall into might not necessarily be a negative way to deal with the tribes it's in need to lead and that is very high by these sorts of through the kind of situation we are in with the years and interest rates so high in the thailand there is the result of speculation if you look at the italian deficit last year was four point six just a tad the head of the german there but far below the france french deficit which was seventy seven point one percent the spanish deficit which was nine percent so i think that actually there is something quite strange going on in the financial markets and that doesn't necessarily reflect the reality of an economy and if we
2:14 pm
focus it on greece we see the government there drafting those are very unpopular draconian austerity measures to try to get the next bit of eurozone. again you're so what do you think your country should do do you think because of the problems you're facing italy should ask the e.u. for financial help or what would be the likely price if it did. i think that there should be renegotiated i think that's the taliban economy is not in such a situation where actually austerity measures can be imported on ordinary people we have about two point two young people who are aged between fifteen and thirty who are out of work and out of any sort of training or starve the the first priority should be to get those people out again into the job markets to create jobs and to create draw that's the priority of an economy which has been ailing actually for
2:15 pm
a decade the rate of growth of fetal in the last decade was always bill and two percent that's very concerning as not so much to do with the recent financial crisis which is led by banks in front forwards and in france. italy is the third largest economy of course in the eurozone as a huge player what would be the likely consequences all of the italian crisis no if it continues to escalate on the rest of the block yeah as i was saying the real concerned there is for is four dollars french and german banks saw a substantial share of the tally and there i think that if they tally an economy collapses there will be a domino effect which will go to the core of the euro financial markets and also of the. economy is but actually i think that.
2:16 pm
as i was saying the first priority should be to get the italian economy i gan into grall by creating demand by creating jobs and not focusing just on financial issues which are not in this reflecting the real situation the real state of affairs. it's a nice wish list but do you think it could be done. i think that's a renegotiate in that there might be down i mean italy is as you were saying an important economy no one can really ignore it or refuse to do trade we need it so if the debt does sound danah boyd we should go back to those people who hold it there then say we cannot afford to pay it is bad we should actually renegotiate these and find a way to out of the krises there as argentina did in two thousand and one as other countries ecuador more recently iceland have done that for me the real way to deal with the cries is ph d.
2:17 pm
candidate in contemporary italian history at the university of reading we love to get the plug in fear the joining us live from london thanks ever so much for your views on r.t. and thing you. mean well in greece we talk about it just now let's look at it again ministers there of offer their resignation to pave the way for a new government it comes as the country's leaders struggle to agree on a new prime minister is talks over unity coalition into the second day george perp and drove. his replacements been announced the interim government to lead the country until elections there are expected to be held in february greece is under pressure to ratify that one hundred thirty billion euro emergency rescue package an end its political crisis has put the entire eurozone in jeopardy our correspondent sara firth it's been asking greeks for their take on the situation and the prospects for their embattled country as they see it. as the usa in crisis rumbles on greece is once again found itself the focus of international attention and it seems like everyone's had an opinion about the situation here in
