while tottenham kept up the pressure inferred operates three one homework over the weekend fourth place chelsea grabbed a point at swans the while liverpool and now in the top five after their three no wind at struggling moves. after all those games were going to head back out on loan from the change that joins like a lot of moscow from tottenham for a fee of thirteen million dollars the thirty year old had failed to establish a regular first team place at spurs since his move there in two thousand and eight spartak moscow but he still managed to score goals you goals in one hundred thirteen appearances for the north london club with the european championships just four months away but the change there said the move back to russia was driven by his desire to play first team football. while over in spain athletic bilbao clinched a two one lead from the first leg of their cup of delray semifinal against but under this wednesday barcelona travel to balance here for the start of their double header passer and seven points behind rail madrid in the domestic title race keeping pressure on the coach but guardiola denies it last of the tough against violent. very strong you know the go to reassure me.
where is a huge this. it will be the return you. to war with the exception. tennis now. has held her first training session in moscow ahead of russia's fed cup quarter final with spain which gets under way at the weekend the twenty four year old has only ever played in three fed cup matches but after a couple of things you read and welcome to three weeks it's pretty and you can find a. new thing straight sets to be. told which accounts for free cheese hoping to continue had a good season by helping russia which they had cup semi final. so it's always great to be in the finals of a grand slam that's what you know always going to be down to you and you know for me to be able to come to moscow in a few days obviously a tough transition going from the heat to the court it's like that for everyone and
you know i think we just have to make the quick adjustments but i'm happy that we have a home match instead of away and then i can actually be in my home country and it's the last time you played fed cup for russia it's for french to discuss well if you see my hopes he said give you no motivation this time because you know last year you know it's it's a team effort and i think that's really how it happened both salon and i didn't have a good first day and then the next day you know the whole team kind of raised their level and one zero two so it's just it's such a different environment than what we're used to or is when you lose a match and then you're kind of out you know a loser or not you still have a chance and that's what makes it so special here do you feel more confident now because i mean you're getting to be the grandson foreigner. but helping to put what happened in two thousand and one two thousand and eight behind you and just moving forward even that you want to get into for know how they're going to want to get to the stage of being in a final it's great and for me to to have been in the open where i haven't been a stage in the second week of a grand slam is a really good achievement for me and you know to be number three in the world is great as well one final question obviously a huge year for you with
a grand slam trying to get another grand slam title lympics i mean this is part of a region where you're playing fed cup trying to get in the libby team and it wouldn't mean to you or the olympics has meant so much for me since i was a young kid those really well we always looked forward to. and one day in tennis when i was young was in the beginning was always all the limbic winter sports that i watched and i hope that one day i would be an olympian so you know mr owen in beijing with the shoulder surgery and this year looking forward to recovery for example which i'm. i talking now and the leading scorer alexander out of the lot has been left out of russia squad for next week's swedish games the third stop on the formation euro hokie tour of the nashville predators and his fellow sell about to live forward he will be getting are exempted from national ahead of the fast approaching post-season oh ma reigning champions russia are looking to maintain their three point lead over sweden the two more tournament and six games left but the law is the catch of the leader in both goes and the cysts paul sullivan have to
play another eight games in the regular season before ending their domestic crown in the garden cup playoffs. to me while this weekend wasco is due to stage its first ever leg of the cross-country skiing world cup but extremely cold weather has caused a doubt over the historic event five and a half thousand tons of artificial snow has been used to construct a track meet the new king state in central moscow vance with temperatures currently below twenty degrees celsius some of the athletes have decided to skip the event the defending champion cologne you know switzerland and as you've seen a couple of chick will be competing for russia have a solid sprint squad and are aiming for success after their home leg through spring standings leader and executed. now with four days to go until sunday super bowl the new england patriots and new giants have held their annual press day and revealed key factors which could determine we crowned champions the giants beat the patriots in the two thousand and eight super bowl final and despite winning ten straight
games coming into this final the patriots know that have to be fruitless against a very strong giants defense and that puts even more pressure on new england star quarterback tom brady. i'm going to make sure i don't do any interceptions make sure i play try to play really well. they're good team i mean i think that's that's why they're here they force you into a lot of mistakes so but we can't go out there and make mistakes and expect to win we've got to go out there and play a very clean game. well both brady and giants quarterback eli manning were part of the squads in that super bowl clash in two thousand and eight with thirty one year old money edging his rival to be named the most valuable player in the money once he's younger teammates to mix business with pleasure to give their all when it matters. and funny to cycling where russia's top team got to show ready to make a big impact this season with some big reinforcements that's not only on explains.
all over the glue on the gray suits of the most prestigious cycling learns since two thousand and nine when they were launched the two sure have been deployed over in the sport sixty victories and over two hundred boardrooms that's what the team have achieved so far nevertheless ahead of their fourth season that you show aiming to take it to the next level the m.c.i. clearly given by the sponsors is our first the olympics the world championships but the sport as well as gifts that the targets you cannot make a team with this quality and say the tour de france doesn't interest me but we have the olympics focusing on it and there are only all four years olympics but this is one of the most goals here on the other hand it's my my aim and it's my work to work also for the russian cycling for the young riders so you must understand this as approaching as a whole project fulfilling those kinds of tasks takes elite riders and added two
superpowers to their roster here comes the first one of the most feared sprinters in the business three time world champion was going to reign in this room i'm very happy to be part of this team first of all cut to show represents such a huge country in russia at the international cycling arena and it's a big honor for me this team is very strong and has huge potential to improve meaning a great deal of opportunity for me to claim more wins in my professional career yaki meanwhile that uses biggest precision cerny in his main show he's the only one of the team to have tasted overall victory at the world's three major events the thirty four year old russian proved to be the best at the jury d'italia in two thousand and nine and twice at the world market i think. it's pretty. this is. one of the best russian either so i think it's it's one of the more.
i think for me or so with you some more and more some more power and more ambitions more and more with you ation for for next season with half we're left to go before the summer olympics in london russia's top cycling team and top cyclists. their interests the combination tour and the olympic games. but. it's his most commercial because. when you are if you're finished or in good shape you're going right i mean begins in the same level if you are four years of children. and maybe a little all in all for you you can pull from to each story but i think you're here for enough level to complete down in the. goodwill that you should look to have everything needed to make this year one of the most if not the most successful
are. mosco says it won't pack a weapons and ball go on the syrian government because god knows would still upon their way to the opposition groups which some un members refuse even to acknowledge . u.k.'s high court considers a plate of bacon it's found that you in the song she is wanted in sweden on allegations of sexual assault case facing accusations of political motivation we go live to london a little later here in our team. and israel's ad campaign insults jews based in the u.s. already feeling alienated by their spiritual homes policies. in business altie facebook is about to list on the nasdaq and this i.p.o.
is to value the company at the round of one hundred billion dollars but analysts tell business l.t. this is too much more on this and twenty. internet . and you can comment live from moscow this is good to have you with us russia will lot agreed to an embargo on weapons to syria moscow says doing so would not prevent the continued arming of opposition groups in the country there's deadlock at the u.n. security council where russia is refusing to back any military intervention or resolution that could aggravate the conflict but for more we can now talk live to autism report now she is in new york where we can explain moscow's position will be omes in boggo well of bill this position is not new but the latest comments have been coming from a russian envoy to the united nations vitaly churkin ambassador churkin addressed
the media a few hours ago indicating that moscow is categorically against imposing on arms embargo on syria and he many reasons but the biggest one drew a parallel to libya because in the case of libya when the security council adopted resolution one nine hundred seventy three allowed for a no fly zone and also included an arms embargo on libya but in the meantime western countries were not imposing that arms embargo on the opposition groups instead the opposition groups were being armed by western countries by nato countries and i am faster church believes this can be a repeat of case in syria because as of now many members of the security council do not even acknowledge that the opposition groups are rising up against syrian president bashar al assad are armed where are those arms coming from those arms stop coming if there is an arms embargo imposed on syria and in the aftermath of
libya and what transpired there ambassador churkin believes that the security council will not necessarily fairly let's take a listen to what he had to say. as it was it would seem logical to assume if there is a conflict let's not support arms there that we saw what happened in libya. imperfect world this would have meant the following surprise to the government the opposition armed groups would have gone anywhere that's what it would mean especially now that our colleagues in the security council refuse even to admit the presence of armed groups so they refused to condemn the armed groups and admit that they are being supplied with weapons then we say ok we'll break all our contracts and longstanding relations with syria but they will start supplying even more arms as they did in libya. so we're you know is there any sign of a break the deadlock over a u.n. resolution now for syria well built all parties agree to things that
a ceasefire should be called in syria and that there should be dialogue between the opposition groups and by the syrian government that's where all parties agree where they differ is the fact that the draft resolution calls on the syrian president to step aside hand over his powers to his first deputy and allow room for a unity transition government that's something that russia and many other countries see as regime change imposing regime regime change from the outside there is also wording in the text that can be interpreted to open the door for military intervention into. into syria because the wording is very vague now that is a circumstance that occurred in the case of libya and as we heard russia say over and over again in the past days it will not allow military intervention into syria so unless the text of the draft changes i do not see russia supporting the draft
resolution that the arab league and european countries have drafted and are campaigning to push forward so if the vote will come in the coming days we can expect to lose the veto by russia. when a thanks very much indeed for that update live in new york well hisham jaber he's the director of the center for middle east studies says that if syria and the u.n. don't choose donald as a means to resolve the conflict the country will fall into civil war. the position of russia russia then china was very clear and logical because they do believe and sanctions or military intervention in syria is out of question and also will increase the problem state of to solve the problem russia called for they allowed to horse both sides the government and the opposition to their log based on the reform and situation and democracy and
i think within the next two months or three months if the proposition of russia will not succeed and not have their log in order to have a peaceful solution for the crisis syria i think syria will be in very difficult situation no one will know when and maybe syria will go into a civil war. the indian ambassador to the u.n. says if the security council continues with its one sided approach to syria a solution will remain a very long way off. as long as the council is in a position to address a recommendation to both sides in a conflict i think you could get agreement but if the council wants to address its recommendation to one side that is the government and is not willing to encourage the opposition to come to the negotiating table then you've got a council recommendation which clearly is not acceptable to some members what we
need to do on syria clearly is to realize that the situation there is spiraling out of control that one reading of the situation in syria will have very serious consequences for these other countries in the region unlike libya the consequences would be higher i'm not suggesting that what happened in libya is not serious enough that talking of that i was going to one of the difficulties that we are having is that the security council expedience in respect of resolutions nine hundred seventy and seventy three on libya are now vitiated the atmosphere in terms of the approach to words how to deal with the situation in syria. and you can see the full interview with the indian ambassador to the un throughout the day here on r.t. and of course also any time you like on our website at r.t. dot com. dozens of people were injured in clashes outside egypt's parliament car on
choose day where protesters gathered to demand an end to military rule they were stopped from reaching the doors of the building by supporters of the muslim brotherhood which holds the majority of seats dr yousef said i'm an intern chief of the christian would turn a newspaper in egypt told me earlier that he thinks incidents like this show the future of the country is still unclear. we are on the road map to the transition. yet christians and moderate muslims are concerned about how the coming months reveal because as we all know according to the constitutional amendments that took place last march joint committee will be formed from both floors in the parliament the shura council and the people's assembly and this committee will be our sign to write
a new constitution. bearing in mind the make already entered majority of christians and moderate muslims are like skeptical about who will be represented in this committee and what will be the criteria of the coming constitution seen continuously reveals demonstrations sit ins and revolution is going into. similar squares in our major cities. what i forget we've also got the world covered for you on our website here's what's online for you right now presidential candidate let me put it as a runoff in the upcoming election is possible but believes it could destabilize the nation's political situation and find out how he's preparing for the poll that r.t. dot com also online at the moment for your. imprisonment and deportation from america just for making a joke on twitter with the story of
a couple whose tweets saw them treated like terrorists by u.s. authorities all that and plenty of other stories that are to dot com. the world's top whistleblower has taken his long legal battle to stay in the u.k. it's the country supreme court where he is appealing extradition to sweden and sanjay is wanted on allegations of sexual assault dating back to august two thousand and ten which he denies that we can expound insists the case is politically motivated and in response to his website publishing secret u.s. cables on wars in afghanistan and iraq while our correspondent she is the high court in london the first day of the hearing has now ended and there be any hints at all as to which way the court could swing. well i'm often happens on the first day of these hearings you only hear one side of the story and what's happened today is that today no stone his team has given that evidence they've all that point his
lawyer diana ross seems to be quite convincing in front of the seven judges they would have not think she just a bit of hubris the proceedings which i don't know it seems to be changed and she was talking mainly about judicial authority when in the swedish prosecutor had the judicial authority to issue the european arrest warrant under which i thought his extradition has been requested she said does this person pursue this prosecutor have it as somebody who is party to the case essentially who has a vested interest in the case and her argument was that the swedish prosecutor called me impartial and independent to say that goes against the fundamental principle of law that's been in place ever since new existed basically i thought himself. during the hearing he listened very attentively and then he left at the end of the day looking fairly relaxed. is this the last chance so for science to
fight his extradition. well it is certainly the last chance in this country the building the you see behind me to see if we can go is basically last chance to leave julian assange as far as his british legal fight has. been going on the fall of the new year as we know he's going up through the courts most recently at the high court he's finally got this to prevent colds he may have if it doesn't go his way he may have recourse to take this european court of human rights but that by no means a given of course this this is all about the fact that he's wanted for questioning in sweden over sexual assault allegations it's alleged that when he was in stockholm in sweden back in august two thousand and ten there were two counts of sexual assault sexual molestation and he has always maintained that this is a case that is politically motivated in connection with his work for wiki leaks when of course he reduced released an enormous number of files that were very
embarrassing to several governments and many international businesses he's made to fear really is that he could be extradited from here to sweden and then straight to the united states that my colleague tom boston has been in sweden has taken a look at what the relationship between sweden and the united states is and his his report. in the face that launched a thousand leaks julian a son does exposure of tens of thousands of secret documents has embarrassed governments the world over but the wiki leaks phenomenon is no longer his most pressing concern swedish authorities want to question a songe over allegations of sexual assault dating back to august two thousand and ten prosecutors have been criticized by a sundress supporters and international civil libertarians with allegations of a cumbersome contradictory and slow legal process huge arguments have also broken
out over the nature of some of sweden's laws on sexual offenses such as those of some faces it's going to be a closed course and leading up to the trial is going to be held. while the cheap prosecutor are straining to be held in solitary confinement it's just bizarre so there are so many bizarre aspects to the wiring which the management has been conducted up till now. from our perspective i just can't see how he would get a fair trial others have gone beyond legal arguments saying the storm raised by our sons through wiki leaks has made him a target for political interference across the atlantic u.s. authorities enraged at having their secret documents exposed may seek to have a son extradited there to stand trial but surely sweden's famed neutrality would stop such a thing i would disagree as whether straight in and out of country sit in
a very clear cut. proximity and collaboration event in military operations with such campaigns initiated by nato you haven't done. so in its presence in afghanistan you have a clear cut. it brought nato policy on the part of sweden and that it's not a priority with some u.s. politicians branding a son a cyber terrorist and calling for the death penalty it could get a lot worse for the wiki leaks founder the problem is not that we have too much wiki leaks too little. i think most people agree with. who is a national public polls indicate that very large majorities applaud and support efforts of wiki leaks to why do worry is that with or without julian
a son governments around the world with something to hide will now launch full scale assaults on internet freedom in order to keep their secrets secret but for now the focus is on the man not his website killing our son just connections with sweden have raised many questions about what really happened in august two thousand and ten but now with a son just future as uncertain as ever questions are being leveled at sweden's legal system and its relationship with the united states which could prove crucial to the fate of the world's most notorious whistleblower tom barton r.t. stockholm sweden. we're here with you live twenty four hours a day coming up on r.t. in the next few minutes israel employs controversial tactics to lure american base jews back to the motherland the critics say needs to fix the problems that drove them away first. china has been taken over by gold
fever it's believed beijing already the world's fifth largest holder of gold stepped up around five hundred tonnes of the precious metal in two thousand and eleven that's double what it bought in two thousand and ten and it could be in the market for more investment manager francis lund believes that beijing is wise to step away from the weakening dollar. china has the largest foreign exchange holding of any country in the world about one trillion u.s. dollars them most of them in u.s. dollars and for several years now chinese see how limits one can be government to diversify is holding foreign exchange china's economy is still. that of the u.s. and china has about nine percent economic growth why the u.s. it has about one point nine percent so it is good to diversify some with the foreign exchange.
