welcome back kotter look at the headlines now the u.n. negotiates a revised resolution text on syria which russia's insistence is no longer aimed at regime change calls for the removal of president suddenly of. progress have been dropped from the updated text still pending approval from the security council. more killings are reported in egypt up to two days of clashes there more than seventeen dead with authorities criticize from the. thousands of protesters are also calling on the ruling military council to retrieve. exclusive
the father of motive from the f.s.b. office on its own who says he regrets accusing a criminal trying out his son's death. well next our special report on the reset russian relations and how it's being affected by america's controversial missile defense system in europe. the most vital national security interests of the united states would be most effectively realized not through hostility to rush through cooperation with it. i think russia and the united states can reach a settlement of the establishment of a global missile defense system but with. this plan research is in jeopardy even the new strategic arms reduction treaty between moscow and washington has been unable to help. at
a time of warmer bilateral relations needs whose top brass decided to deploy a missile defense system aimed at protecting europe but they were setting up too close to russia's borders and moscow didn't view it as a friendly gesture. we wanted to fill in the whole of europe not just some european countries with one or european allies and friends to join on missile defense strategy. lucina in the event of the situation with a european missile defense system becoming unfavorable to russia we reserve the right to take no further steps in the nuclear disarmament area. the kremlin has repeatedly demanded that nato guarantees that the european missile defense shield would pose no threat to russia's strategic interests sofa the west has refused to cooperate with must go on the issue.
intercontinental ballistic missiles are transported through snow bound russian forests under the cover of darkness. shrouded in secrecy the people in charge need to perform training drills and test the hardware on the roof. suddenly the convoy comes to a halt there's a forest street blocking the. crossing it's quite a challenge for the drivers of motor vehicles weighing many tons. as specially considering. heads.
of heavy launches safely reach the opposite bank with the most hazardous hurdle behind it the convoy is on the move again. as the convoy forges ahead to its destination they leave the forest and pass through villages the sound of powerful engines thundering past is becoming a common occurrence lately for local people. we need such missiles to defend russia. we would be crushed if we didn't have them. that's all there is to it. when you hear them rumbling past you get a sense of great might there is no dealt we will be able to defend our country.
without an agreement with the united states on missile defense and in the face of potential military threats russia was compelled to think of countermeasures. the country has declared in the past that it may withdraw from the strategic arms reduction treaty and said it will introduce measures to counter the missile defense . we will go ahead with the deployment of our missile defense system it is obvious that this presupposes the deployment of its components in poland in romania or station in turkey obviously this will also until these their mission of the basins be for american ships equipped with the system. it is obvious that the missile defense system will be targeted at the russian federation rather than some mythical middle eastern countries possessing virtual missiles. at least fifteen
countries around the world have been involved with the nato missile defense shield . their radar stations in denmark and britain which is also host to interceptor missiles. canada two is going to join the project anti missile functions will be given to be agency responsible for north america's outer space defense. japan has decided to assist the nato missile defense shield it's taking part in the manufacture of a just into septa missiles. japan is going to build a forward based radar station on its territory. a similar radar station has already been built in turkey. the czech republic rumania hungry are ready to allow nato as missile defense complexes to be placed on their territory. if that were america forward based american military presence which means the deployment of
to be controlled by russia's president who is also commander in chief of the armed forces. some time ago russia suggested to the united states that they jointly control space over the middle east using a similar radio transmitter stationed in azerbaijan if nato is top brass agreed to cooperate they would receive reports of any unauthorized iranian missile launches that washington would see as a threat to america. britain has developed milicic missiles capable of hitting targets in the middle east in eastern europe this poses a threat to u.s. interests in the region. i don't agree with the u.s. government belief that this is a serious problem. and is doing is they're using very simple relit and nothing simple about rockets but the using very early generation rocket technology the only rockets they could build that could reach the united states
would be enormous in size and not be mobile. this would have to be launched from fixed locations where the united states and russia join the united states could monitor these these missiles many in the united states dislike the views of fear. he maintains that the european missile defense system is ineffective the scientist estimates that it has no chance of protecting the united states from a rainy and missiles instead it creates problems for russia if russia believes the fence is not needed but it doesn't if you're radical for russia. my guess is that the russian government. if you want to spend your national treasure this will help you. solve the political problem and it provides a much more capable defense with the united states currently building. much cheaper
. the professor believes that the purpose of nato europe is to track the movements of russian strategic weapons and to monitor russia's new military technologies. the real target could be russia but certainly it makes the people of europe less safe it draws them in in fact as a geo strategic pawn by great powers as they maneuver and use the missile defense shield not as a way to defend your not as a way to defend anybody in fact but to provide a first strike a potential capability against the adversary. this is how we are going to train ourselves in order to be ready for any situation . these people crossing a field of kelp have serious worries about the global situation.
they feel that as long as nuclear weapons exist they need to know how to protect themselves. if they're to survive in the face of a real threat they need to have everything necessary close at hand. the coach tells them that a compass and a mobile phone unlikely to help. the problem is that we can only get our bearings by looking at tree branches there are more branches on the side where they are exposed to sunlight outside points to the south. the people involved in a survival experiment will have to cover several kilometers in full. training mission is to reach an abandoned military base where they can hide from the harmful

and weighs about forty five. despite its impressive proportions the russian still gets tough. with absolute precision mages and it's a joke is making sure that the missile launches cool ways in working order moving military hardware. is always fraught with danger. with this is a highly accurate weapon it has a range of up to ten thousand kilometers and lands within not more than two hundred metres from targets. you certainly realize that for the purposes of a nuclear strike you this means a direct hit. the united states cannot give russia a legal guarantee that the missile defense system is not directed against it this would be the wrong move as the matter consumes the defense of need two countries.
russia feels compelled to take countermeasures because the united states has refused to give legal guarantees demonstrating that the deployment of the american missile defense system in europe is not directed against russia. nato countries are in the list scripts the deployment of their military installations to europe. new american military bases may soon be set up in kazakhstan. turkmenistan and tajikistan. once russia has been encircled by military bases as a new geo political reality will emerge we need to take this reality into account already today but take measures to control potential threats to our security. meanwhile the view that the missile defense shield is too expensive is getting increasing currency inside the united states itself to provide financial backing to
the armed forces more of the project is making millions of dollars from nato subcontractors inferiors countries. between two thousand and five and tooth. nine the u.s. has spent fifteen billion dollars and the price paid for the entire program that we are dealing with right now here in two thousand and eleven is another hundred fifty billion dollars that's larger than many country's entire military budgets. some of the funding for the missile defense system in europe is being put to use in poland snorkels the small village of rijeka is home to a high security installation. the base used to be manned by polish air force pilots soviet made fighters still serve as a reminder of the fact that poland was once a member of the warsaw pact an organization formed off to world war two by the u.s. says in response to nato. the old warplanes will be scrapped by the u.s.
troops who arrive here shortly they'll be bringing missiles with them. local residents have already been told that they won't be getting any compensation for having the new arsenal placed so close to their homes. and out on the we are not overjoyed at the prospect of these weapons being deployed a few hundred metres from our homes on them or you've got the missiles will pose a threat to the local population of over one thousand people. elizabeth a demand sca a schoolteacher came to reject a book from warsaw a long time ago she knows only too well what the villages think about the military installation. the newest of course none of us of this most of the people even here are farmers. and of course they were very war it's an absolute hearing use of deployment for the time being though the base and we. wait.
but even first graders in the village of rhetoric of a are aware of the military base. but the school children don't fully understand the threat so that teaches bring them up to date in the classroom. good morning you found three steak you see it's. today we start with a history lesson. elisabetta demands go teaches her pupils about military conflicts she insists that people should never forget history's lessons if future conflict is to be avoided. the military base in regular is in full view of the school as the teacher tells her pupils about world war two they visualize the base as a symbol of the past the present and the future. is the sh'ma of german
troops once use the territory just outside of school and later polish pilots served here. no doubt you know that an american military base is going to be set up here. and there is going to be in you and tree in the history books because of it. to come and transform the legacy of past wars into works of art on the shores of the gulf of finland he's found hundreds of sea mines made during world war two and the cold war the artist uses them to make remarkable objects this mine for example will become a fireplace. i think it will make a nice fireplace. the sea mines picked up by come in sync ships the artist so-called military style doesn't mean he's succumbs
to fashion instead it's an attempt to create works of art using something that was originally intended for destruction and murder. you don't miss that you can make anything you like from these oval shaped minds. you can make sculptures out of them you can even make a race car. come in those from news bulletins that missile defense components will soon be installed close to his country. he says nato missiles can easily be turned into beautiful sculptures. in. the amount of effort spent on making such weapons would be much better spent funding the arts.
the people involved in this experiment testing their capacity for survival and the nuclear aftermath have finally reached their destination and abandoned military banka now they need to take a breather and warm up near a camp fire. the coach knows that this kind of training is useful in any case participants to strengthen their skills and prepares them for any emergency in their regular daily lives. but. it's great that there is a growing number of people who want to learn survival skills even if nothing catastrophic happens they now have a different psychological attitude. this will prepare them for other small emergencies but. those who have gone through survival training school
a fully aware of the fact that the location of their exercise is fully protected. offices at the radar station including major. control the entire space over a year. pm russia. the outer space control center has given instructions to track an artificial earth satellite and. all modern racial information is fed to the outer space control center. of the first so get acquired classification official it says lloyd dismissed four hundred fifty as a month three hundred thirty three. the stuff makes no secret of the fact that the russian radar transmitter sees european air space in great detail. on the station's unique radar tracks even submarine launched missiles in the barren sunlight sees the sea of a hot sky and around the north pole. our
system is being expanded in response to the expansion of the european missile defense shield. the the aim is to match the measures being taken in europe that the new stations are being commissioned here to respond to nato as activities. thrown at them. we will buy new means limited or alter our plans with the deployment of missile defense components in europe. russia has not closed the deal it will continue dialogue with the united states and nato on the missile defense system it is ready for practical cooperation in the sphere.
