and fighting between police and protesters continues in egypt with twelve people killed and hundreds more injured in the latest crackdown. call up next our special report on the reset in u.s. russia 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 russia but through cooperation with it. nicely and russia and the united states can reach a settlement of the establishment of a global missile defense system while. 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 nato's top brass decided to deploy
8:32 pm
a missile defense system protecting europe but they were setting up too close to russia's borders and moscow didn't view it as a friendly gesture. we want to defend the whole of europe not just some european countries we want to european allies and friends to join on missile defense strategy. to jeannie with 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.

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 were good we would be crushed if we didn't have them. but that's all there is to it. working 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.
8:35 pm
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 shield. we will go ahead with the deployment of our missile defense system it is beyond me is that this presupposes deployment of its components in poland in romania in a radar station in turkey obviously this will also until the is there mission of a base in spain for american ships equipped with the ag system. it is obvious that the missile defense systems will be targeted at the russian federation rather than some mythical middle eastern countries possessing a virtual missile. at least fifteen countries around the world have been involved with the nato missile defense

of us global domination as a powerful ramified infrastructure any military base has the capacity to deploy units of agents supplying electronic intelligence. russia has taken adequate measures to counter such actions but i'm like nato it confines its activities to its own territory a radar station is being put on combat duty in the kaliningrad region russia's westernmost. tactical missile systems are being deployed in the country's west and . they can hit any target within a radius of up to five hundred kilometers. what is most important is that the russian ballistic missiles are being gradually equipped with new warheads capable of overcoming nato's missile defense system.

this lift carries people down to a secret radar station in european russia it's tucked away deep underground in a few minutes time major will be on duty to protect russia's space. to get everything about the station is classified the equipment behind these doors is the responsibility of special officers the station itself can operate autonomously it has its own power source and water supply and a ventilation system and. washington knows only too well that russia can easily control the entire space of eastern europe this radio is one of the instruments the military installation protects the moscow region from attack by ballistic missiles it's thought to be controlled by russia's president who is also commander in chief of the armed forces
8:39 pm
. some time ago russia suggested to the united states that they jointly control the outer space over the middle east he was in a similar radar transmitter stationed in azerbaijan if nato's top brass agreed to cooperate they would receive reports of any unauthorized iranian missile launches that washington would see as a threat to america. who are and has developed milicic missiles capable of hitting targets in a little 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 with iran is doing is they're using very simple relevent 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

8:41 pm
nato is radar with 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 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 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 see. some light side points to the south. the people involved in a survival experiment will have to cover several kilometers in full gear their training mission is to reach an abandoned military base where they can hide from
