mts demonstrating that the deployment of the american missile defense system in europe is not directed against russia. nato countries are in no mood to risk rates the deployment of their military installations to europe. new american military bases may soon be set up in kazakhstan. to administer and tajikistan. about i see a boy 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
sub contractors in various countries. between two thousand and five and two thousand and nine the us 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 and 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 and north 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 i don't know if we are not overjoyed at the prospect of these weapons being deployed a few hundred metres from our homes. on the market 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 over from warsaw a long time ago she knows only too well what the villages think about the military installation. then use the force and as opposed to this most of the people even here are farmers. and they both course there were very war it's an absolute hearing use of any cell deployment for the time being though like the basin we. 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 that teaches bring them up to date in the classroom. lingo good morning new friends please take your seats. that's gotten them and today we start with a history lesson. elisabetta demands go teaches her pupils about military conflicts she insists the 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. just german troops once used the territory just outside old school. 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 three in the history books because of it americans. estonian sculptor to come and transforms the legacy of past wars into works about on the shores of the gulf of finland has 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 can no longer sink ships the artist so-called military style doesn't mean his 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 think there's going to be and you can make anything you like from these overall shape minus no you can rig sculptures out of them you can even make a race car. coming 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. any writer with 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 an abandoned military bunker 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 it helps 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.

stalemate out the u.n. russia and china rebuffed the western backed draft resolution on syria with moscow saying it's bad wording leaves the door open for foreign military intervention. by return to on roster a dozen dead and thousands wounded in egypt as protesters attempt to loosen the military's iron grip on power. in russia hundreds of thousands gathered for rival rallies ahead of next month's presidential vote with massive pro and anti-government marches. us police clamp down on the occupy movement a tent city in central washington is the latest to be evicted after a camping ban was brought in.
hello karen tara thanks for being with us broadcasting to you live from moscow russia and china have given a firm no to the latest u.n. security council resolution on syria moscow has defended its move saying the draft fails to deliver a balanced approach to be on rest and favors extremist groups which could ignite even more violence that says those who are behind the document are now ganging up against the veto states marine import nine reports from new york. in a matter of just five minutes after the meeting began russia and china both wielded their veto powers not supporting this draft resolution that was written up by the arab league and european countries while the draft resolution was supported by thirteen members of the security council russia was asking for some amendments
according to russian foreign minister sergei lavrov those amendments were not excessive and mr are a lot of said that russia was urging the west to accommodate moscow's concerns to reach a compromise on this draft resolution china said during the meeting that it supported russia's amendments and said for the council to approach a vote knowing that there was a divide it did not help maintain the unity or the authority of the security council russian foreign minister sergei lavrov said that moscow does not support using the security council as a tool to intervene on a sovereign country experiencing an internal conflict he believes that could create chaos in international affairs so as we see there was two vetoes on this resolution it did not go through and it's because russia believes that as the draft resolution
was presented it had a lot of imbalances in it when it comes to the current circumstance in syria russian envoy to the united nations vitaly churkin did go into detail about those imbalances that you know the draft resolution does not adequately which led to the real situation in syria the incident and. the co-sponsors of the resolution and would if there was that i'm not taking into account the syrian opposition they must distance itself from extremist groups committing violence. on states your ability to use their influence to prevent such. know will have been taken into account because of a. with was drawing the syrian forces from the cities. to attack. state institutions . nor has the being schooled for affording more flexibility to get into. states to increase the chances of a successful grossest purchase foreign minister is scheduled to visit damascus on
tuesday to meet with syrian president bashar al assad this is a move to hold to to hopefully reach some type of peaceful approach or solution to the conflict still waging in syria the arab league has also addressed the media at the security council at the stakeout saying that they are extremely disappointed. over today's outcome but they will continue trying to work with the security council with the united nations to try to reach some type of consensus now u.s. president barack obama did also issue a statement of his own before the meeting began to dating that you know the united states is on the side of the syrian people that are opposing the syrian president and his government and he said quote the assad regime at the time has come for the reason assad regime and to change clearly the united states is pushing for regime change this is a sticking point this is something that russia does not support so we'll see what
takes place in the days and weeks to come but as of now the draft text proposed by the europeans by the arab league vetoed by russia and china. off from the stop nato group says that when the alliance gets involved in trying to resolve a crisis peacefully it usually ends and bombing and violence. what i fear is we may be see a replication of what happened in one thousand nine hundred ninety when the united states and its nato allies launched a seventy eight day bombing campaign against yugoslavia having failed to enlist chinese and russian support for un resolution against that in a few of those laws i'm hoping of course that the resolute stand taken the principled stand taking the taken by russia and china against a resolution that we have to remember was sponsored by morocco and co-sponsored by a very interesting group of people they include the middle quality of the world the united states britain france and germany along with portugal they include all six members of the gulf cooperation council that is the monarchies and camera in the
persian gulf this is not a representative group of nations of course in the united nations or the world so very select one is largely the same group the comparable resolution one thousand and seventy three against libya last year no armed uprising of the sort of burn in syria could have occurred if it was in libya earlier kossovo yugoslavia thirteen years ago without the understanding by those in gauging the armed uprising the bay would be supported by forces outside the country more than two hundred people were reportedly killed by security forces in the syrian city of homes just ahead of a vote at the un security council but the figure is being contested with some opposition groups putting it at around fifty syria try be own editor ali mohamed says the information coming from the opposition shouldn't be taken at face value. but there were not to be leaving the syrian army we had to do it in months and then just the night before the security council meeting we decided to start bombarding
homes. which in homs are being difficult for the syrian. regime supporters for such a long time and i don't see why the army would choose such a critical timing to just start it's a vicious crackdown as described it is the art of only two means and just two weeks ago we had the arab league observers who could have gone there and investigative but unfortunately they were pulled over for little good reason and therefore there are only claims from these so opposite claims from their side we are not treated to what's going on but i don't think that the army what's really it's it's not like the syrian army this is number one james like that happened before in. just a short time and the opposition was not able to prove any of these claims over the best in months a little later in the program we report on another target of western press here iran is ready to cause chaos and world markets saying it will respond to
a looming easy you boil embargo by cutting off the supply before european countries have time to find alternatives. and tens of thousands of webcams will be installed at all of russia's polling stations ahead of next month's presidential election but not everyone believes they'll help ensure transparency. a dozen dead and thousands injured at the bloody aftermath of three straight days of rioting in egypt it all began after an outbreak of violence at a football match or earlier this week an episode that claimed the lives of seventy four people our correspondent maria has more from to where square the heart of egypt's revolutionary movement. things have been extremely devastating and terribly killed so you hear these are the last few days and also very tragic the code so huge that massacre only one state when seventy four people died in this time heat one of the city's football stadiums has become by itself the deadliest incident
since world war accosted last february but it's also triggered a new wave of clashes between the police the army and defense reaches that have actually become something common seen here in the capital cairo and everywhere for all of egypt the fact is people have been very weak to excuse the import slate incident to use local forces especially the interior ministry of doing nothing of the allowing this to happen allowing these deaths over and efficiency and actually over instigating these trials in order to preserve the situation of instability in the country in order to fit into existing following somehow. through terror and rule the generals from the supreme council of the armed forces they took power from the barak last february and since then demonstrations actually have never told shortly after this happened on wednesday the public school football fans have come to leave but it's nothing to the minister here in the central pa who just walked
away from here seeking for justice and calling for the amy did transition of power from the ministry to civil to situations and for early presidential elections and since then twelve people have been killed in the last four days and twenty five hundred dollars have been injured who think that it's a terrible dissolve so i have to say i hope you can see the pictures right now as you can imagine. while masuda street is a narrow street is one of the streets they didn't towards the built in old the interior ministry here in hollywood the queen many many people there chanting and to miter slogans from time to time police has been the firing tear gas. test isn't even. old so we've been able to speak to several people though let's listen to what they have to say about who is going and when it's going to stop people not just protesting addition to teaching. because to the students are unbelievably effects people people might die and that there will be such
a thing each day to turn everything to their chinese that lets light the fire and be the chief or. that the chinese the seventy seven year old china it's over here that's more than enough for what they're doing to the protestors and that they're doing to the to the country. it must be it was you can see a situation is very volatile here in cairo and actually in several all the cities throughout egypt but we can also can talk now about several months as well the following points incident the figures the people from the administration all of the students have been detained and they're in custody right now is that while the investigation is under go we can also make a protest just a month just so we simply this is a film called some of the armed forces that follows really has also called for early presidential elections in the country. omar schorr from the institute of arab
and islamic studies at the university of exeter says egyptians are tired of waiting for accountable leadership. supreme council of the armed forces. mismanaged the transitional process to a large degree the expectations on the egyptian street where they thought that they would be. power from italy to civilian elected civilian in six months and therefore once you have elected civilian rule the investments will come to life the economic life will be back to normal there will be a formal restructuring of the security services that acted in a very aggressive in. the mubarak era and all the expectations of the the economy to enhance a better economy the dignity the freedom the bread the slogans of that evolution were not really accomplished by a year after the revolution that's why there is a protest last friday and on the anniversary of that if it was wanted
a president now an elected president now so that they can hold him accountable if you feel to be stored back the egyptian economy and if you fear to reform the security services. thirty minutes past the hour you're with r t still to come on the program. very few people who would see as many horrible things are. going to do with shock spies saw the u. turn we talked to the father of the poisoned f.s.b. officer alexander the lead being go to find out why he's withdrawn his accusations about russia being responsible for his son's death. saturday was a day of demonstrations across russia hundreds of thousands gathered in moscow st petersburg and elsewhere to voice their political views ahead of next month's presidential election the capital saw both pro-government and opposition rallies all calling for a fair election some gathered to oppose the blood even to putin's candidacy there's
compared his opponents to the orange revolution supporters in the ukraine martin mccauley an expert on russia at the university of london says the only hope the opposition has of winning is to unite behind a single candidate. result of the election of course we are very very important because what these demonstrators want is if you like a clean election an absence of fraud and so on and it's up to the authorities to ensure that there will be cameras there and so on and therefore it's probably will be a very clearly election but what is important is that it seemed to be fair and that these people have no cause to claim that the election on the fourth of march whether president vladimir putin wins the first round of that has to be seen to be fair and to be clean otherwise it will be tremendous protests on the level of about the opposition will not come together they don't want to compromise they don't want to arrive at
a single candidate the only way they're going to defeat the will put in on the fourth of march just have a single candidate who is accepted by the whole opposition and there's no likelihood of this it looks already as if it cannot easily garner the common is going to will come up second as he always does then the villagers of skim milk of a third or fourth and so on the meter are proper of who bring up the rest because he is there really only to appeal to the middle class urban voters. measures are already being taken to ensure transparency at next month's election one of them is an unprecedented plan to install webcams at every voting station for direct internet broadcast but as you go to scan of reports not everyone is convinced it will be effective. inch after inch mile after mile big brother is preparing to cast his eyes on polling stations as the massive campaign to install web cameras is in full swing across the entire nation but actually
sometimes but i think if anything i ask the central electoral commission to install web cameras at all polling stations across the country so that everyone can watch online what's happening there how much twenty four hours a day when they go we want them there. the idea was put forward following the biggest protests in russia since the collapse of the u.s.s.r. with tens of thousands demanding fair elections so wiring up over ninety thousand polling stations is the scale and around a half of a billion us dollars is the price tag. coming into the system is not be made only for one day we help this project want only develop elections acknowledges but will also help modernize telecommunications infrastructure across the entire country. all cameras will be feeding the videos the therm to local digital storage facilities after computer processing will be then sent to seven large storage and distribution centers via cable radio and satellite these centers will then
broadcast the information to several web portals it's estimated that all together the cameras will film and broadcast four hundred and ninety years of video information in good quality however there is still down to this technology will help make the vote more transparent. you'll get a bunch sure the observers won't be able to check advance if these cameras work or not and shave using a camera phone everyone knows about cameras in supermarkets but these still doesn't stop robberies from happening. it's planted that every ballot box will be monitored way to cameras one with the general view and another with a close up of the slot there are many ways to rig a vote and the cameras don't provide one hundred percent guarantee against that but using them should still make it much more difficult to stuff boxes of course there is nothing new. or where cameras.
