welcome back time for a look at the headlines now the latest pictures now from colorado where volleys of tear gas have been fodder into fleeing crowds of protesters egyptians have rallied for the third day or so at least three people killed in protests against the military this broke out after wednesday's football ballance left seventy four dead and. the u.n. makes headway on a new resolution on syria references to regime change or. move on to russia's concerns but moscow continues to warn it would oppose any attempt even to hit the president. but those polling stations across russia get their own digital
observer of what cameras are installed on misty's orders a move was introduced by the you tube is one step toward stalking and they control for next month's presidential election. next hour special reports on the reset us russian relations and how it's being affected by america's controversial missile defense shield in europe. the most vital national security interests of the united states would be most effectively realized not through hostility to russia but through cooperation with it. i think russia and the united states can reach a settlement on the establishment of a global missile defense system with. this plan reset 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 nato's 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 mosco didn't view it as a friendly gesture. we want to defend the whole europe not just some european countries we wonder european allies and friends to join in on missile defense strategy. 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 moscow on the issue.
intercontinental ballistic missiles are transported through snow bound russian forests under the cover of darkness. shrouded in secrecy the people in need to perform training drills and test the hardware on the roof. suddenly the convoy comes to a halt there's a forest street. crossing it's quite a challenge for the drivers of motor vehicles weighing many tons. as specially considering carrying heads.
the heavy launches safely reach the opposite bank with the most hazardous huddle 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 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 deployment of its components in poland in romania or a station in turkey obviously this will also entailed these their mission of a base in spain for american ships equipped with the ag is them. 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 pages 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 roumania hungary poland are ready to allow nato as missile defense complexes to be placed on their territory. it that
to be controlled by russia's president whose. 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 station to azerbaijan if nato has told us agreed to cooperate they would receive reports of any unauthorized iranian missile launches that washington would see as a threat to america. has developed missiles capable of hitting targets in the little beast 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.
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 city would have to be launched from fixed locations where the united states and russia if russia joined the united states could monitor these these missiles many in the united states and just like the views of. a 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 is the fence is not needed. but it doesn't pose if you're radical for russia. my guess is that russia. if you want to spend your national treasure this will help you so it solves the political problem and it provides much more capable
defense with the united states currently building it's a. much cheaper. the professor believes that the purpose of nato is radar and europe is to track the movements of russian strategic weapons and to monitor russia's new military technology. 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. 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 there's a survive in the face of a real threat they need to have everything necessary closer to. 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 they're more. exposed to sunlight. to the.
experiment. where they can hide from the harmful effects of radiation. culture is that so much as i know in which of course he's right on it and i'm still here and you as the us presidential campaign become a horse race pitting incoming rocket bomber against republican mitt romney if this is really the case with. a soulless substance. this can a touch like a well trained army. villages in ruins. for thailand where time stands still.
all becomes a sea of nothingness. the mysterious sounds of russia. on our t.v. . the close up team has been to the whole bar of screen. where the country's mineral wealth starts its way across the ocean. now our team goes to the area. was named after lenin but looking to a different character to represent itself for local businesses or striving to build the aviation capital of russia. that's where the four by fours are made and can be tested to the limit. welcome to the union of creature. russia close up.
for haste. twenty five to make. it to. and weighs about forty five tons of fuel. despite its impressive propulsion the russian missile still hits targets with absolute precision mage's on it's a joke is making sure that the missile launches how cool weighs in working order moving military home. he's 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 this means a direct hit. the united states cannot give russian legal
guarantees 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 which to list scripts the deployment of them 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 a new geo political reality will emerge we need to take this reality into account
already today but and 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 it provides financial backing to the armed forces moreover the project is making millions of dollars from nato subcontractors in various countries. between two thousand and five and two thousand and nine the u.s. has spent fifteen billion dollars in the price to pay 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 signals 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 fun to 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. as 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 we are not overjoyed at the prospect of these weapons being deployed a few hundred meters from our homes. you've got the missiles will pose a threat to the local population of over one thousand people. elisabetta 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. then use the force knows about most of the people. even here are farmers. and of course they were very warm after hearing news of me sell deployment for the time being though the base and we are going all cyprus ways. but even first graders in the village of rhetoric of a are aware of the military base. but the schoolchildren don't fully understand the threat so their teachers bring them up to date in the classroom. good morning you found three stake your seats. today we start with a history lesson in. elizabeth the demands go teaches her pupils about military conflicts she insists the people should never forget history's lessons if you check
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 transforms 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 seaman's 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 can make anything you like from these shaped minds. you can make sculptures out of them you can even make. those from news bulletins that missile defense components will soon be installed close to his country. he says missiles can easily be turned into
beautiful sculptures. 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 in a nuclear off the mouth have finally reached their destination and abandoned military banka. they need to take a breather and warm up near a campfire. knows that this kind of training is useful in any case it happens 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 of 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 image. all modern information is fed to the outer space control center. of the first so get a quiet classification official it says lloyd dismissed fourteen fifty as m of three hundred thirty three. the stuff makes no secret of the fact that the russian
radar transmitter sees european air space in great detail. the station's unique radar tracks even submarine launched missiles in the barrens and white sees the sea of a whole sky and around the north pole. our system is being expanded in response to the expansion of the european missile defense shield. 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. for them . we will buy new means limited or alter our plans for 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
