some of the funding for the missile defense system in europe is being put to use in poland's 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 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. as in response to nato. the old war planes 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 us 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.

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 experiments testing their capacity for survival and the nuclear aftermath have finally reached their destination and 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. 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 outer space over a european russia. the other space control center has given instructions to track an artificial earth satellite. bull monitored operational information is fed to the delta. space control center. i'm not first so i get

russia and china blocked a western backed u.n. draft resolution on syria with moscow slamming the text unbalanced approach and denial of dialogue between the government and opposition. other stories shaping the week riots returned to egypt as anger at the authorities failure to prevent eid deadly soccer brawl spills over into four days of violent clashes that have already seen a dozen dead. in russia's bitter subzero cold hundreds of thousands of joy record breaking rallies both pro and anti-government ahead of next month's presidential vote.
ten pm in moscow i mattress i could tell you with us here on r t our top story moscow says it's determined to help bring an end to the syrian crisis by implementing democratic reforms it's sending foreign minister lavrov to damascus for talks next week on saturday russia and china blocked the latest u.n. security council resolution on syria saying it could cause even more bloodshed because it took sides in the armed conflict artie's marina porton i has latest from new york. tempers are still flaring because as we've been reporting this should be surprised that the security council did not reach a consensus on the draft resolution on syria yet western countries still pushed for a vote and russia warned from the very beginning that if the draft was not a did not address some of russia's concerns it would veto and that's exactly what happened now let's talk about these concerns because moscow said it just requested
some simple amendments would be made to the draft text that would have made the resolution a little bit more balance for example the draft resolution different and the syrian government withdraw its all of its forces from the cities and towns and cities are all violence but russian officials wanted the document the draft resolution to also demand that the armed opposition groups stop participating in violence and retreat back from any cities or towns where it may have occupied the kremlin call it has called a draft text that was presented saturday morning to one side with a list of demands being made on the assad government but no note of armed opposition groups operating in syria now while addressing the security council saturday a russian envoy to the u.n. fratelli churkin so the security council was not created just for the sake of taking sides or interfering in a civil war of sovereign countries he also accused some current some countries of
sponsoring a campaign of regime change in syria those who are pushing for this resolution to be adopted don't you sleep with them still you could be some influential members of the international community including those sitting around this table have from the very beginning of the syrian crisis been undermining opportunities for political settlement by calling for regime change stirring up the opposition against the authorities and not hesitating to encourage and freedom of methods of struggle the draft resolution put to the vote does not adequately reflect the real situation in syria and since unbalanced signals to the syrian sides it doesn't take into account the. proposals that as well as withdrawing syrian armed forces from the cities this should be an end to attorneys by armed groups on state institutions and neighborhoods balance you know when the signal is now the u.s. delegation could not help but showing its frustration and anger when our participating in the meeting saturday morning we heard. you some language that's normally not heard in these diplomatic settings like disgusted in shame the united
states is disgusted that a couple members of this council continue to prevent us from fulfilling our sole purpose here. addressing an ever deepening crisis in syria and a growing threat to regional peace and security in the meantime the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov is heading to damascus on tuesday to meet with syrian president bashar al assad russia has been very vocal in trying to get both sides participating in the conflict in syria to come to our table and start speaking to one another and. using some type of dialogue instead of violence to come to a peaceful approach so of course we will stay on the story and see how it evolves and works out as diplomats continue their showdown over syria thousands of demonstrators gathered in summer in damascus in support of president assad crowds also praised the decision by russia and china to block western calls for
a game changer in syria where throws are from the stop nato group tells our team that although moscow and beijing and our not to allow u.n. sanction for intervention there is a chance the country could still be bogged down the hall. but i fear is we may be see a replication of what happened in one thousand nine hundred nine 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. hoping of course that the resolute stand to take on 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 from the influence of the nato quality of the world the united states britain france and germany along with forbes are going to include all six members of the draw cooperation council that is the monarchies and camera in the persian gulf this is not a representative group of nations of course when the united nations with world
selects one is largely the same for the first a comparable resolution one thousand seven hundred three against libya last year you know armed uprising that was sort of burned in syria could have occurred if it was a libyan earlier kossovo those longer than the thirty years ago without the understanding by those engaging with armed uprising that they would be supported by forces outside the. more than two i've heard people were reportedly killed by security forces in the syrian city of homs just ahead of the vote of the un security council but the government has denied the assad calling their reports a hysterical campaign of incitement by armed groups the editor of the syrian tribune dr ali mohamed says information from the opposition shouldn't be taken at face value but i mean there were not to be leaving the syrian army waited ten months and then just the night before the u.n. security council meeting it decided to start bombarding homes this too which in homs had been difficult for the syrian. regime supporters for such
a long time and i don't see why the army would choose such critical timing to just start it's a vicious crackdown has described it to the out of only cleans and to the just two weeks ago we had the arab league observers who could have gone there and investigate it but unfortunately they were pulled out for a little good reason and therefore there are only claims from this side. opposites claims from their side we cannot treat it with what's going on but i don't think that the army wants really it's it's not like the syrian army this is number one and claims like that happened before in. just a short while being there and the opposition was not able to pull any of these claims over the best in months. gyptian police have again fired rubber bullets and tear gas to drive a truck a crowd of rock throwing protesters away from the interior ministry building in
cairo clashes between security forces and demonstrators in egypt have been raging for four days now leaving a dozen people dead and thousands injured activists have been venting their anger over the military rulers alleged failure to prevent a deadly outbreak of violence at a football match wednesday archies marie if an ocean has more from. them things have been extremely devastating and terribly killed so you can eighties of the last few days and also very tragic the food so huge a massacre only one state when seventy four people died in the system heat of one of the city's football stadiums has become by itself the deadliest incident since mubarak ousted last february but it's also trying to get a new wave of clashes between the police the army and demonstrators that have actually become something common seen here in the capital cairo and i've been with roads egypt the fact these people have been very weak to excuse me and who would cite the incident to use new forces especially being to remain in street doing
nothing of the law in this to happen the law in these deaths so far and we should see and actually over instigating these kind of those in order to preserve the situation of instability in the country you know to them to exist to follow and somehow think through terror and rule the generals from the supreme council of the armed forces they took power from mubarak last february and since then demonstrations actually have never still shortly after this happened on wednesday the public schools food bill funds have come to me but it's nothing to do in the city in the central pa who just walked away from here seeking for justice and calling for amy did transition power from the ministry to civil to situations until early presidential elections and since then twelve people have been killed in the last full day. twenty five hundred dollars something to 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 to the woods they built an old photo of the interior ministry here in hollywood the queen many many people that chanting intimately slogans from time to time police has been the firing tear gas at the times doesn't even show it's been able to speak to several people there let's listen to what they have to say about what was going on when it's going to stop people not just for testing in addition to teaching. because the students are unbelievably effect even people might die and that if they suffocate each the children everything to their chinese that. that's like the fear and the schieffer. that the chinese the seventy seven year old china it's over here it's more than enough what they're doing to the protestors and they're doing to the to the country . must be. was you can see
a situation is very volatile here in cairo and actually in several of the cities throughout egypt but we can also can talk now about several months as well the following points incident the fever is that the people from the administration told the students have been detained and they're in custody right now is is that while the investigation he's up on to go in and also make a protest against a month just recently the supreme council of the armed forces advisory has also called for early presidential elections in the country. all mara shore from the institute of arab and islamic studies at exit or university says egyptians are tired of waiting for accountable leadership. supreme council of the armed forces has mismanaged the transitional process to a large degree the expectations on the egyptian street it would rising because they thought that they would be friends. but it could lead 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 would be a total restructuring of the security services that acted in a very aggressive and put up to a do it in the mubarak era and all these the expectations of the of the economy to enhance a better economy the dignity the freedom the bread the slogans of that evolution would not really accomplished by a year after that evolution that's why that is the last friday and on the university of that it was. a president now an elected president now so that they can hold him accountable if you feel to be stalled that the egyptian economy and if you feel to reform the security services well stay with us here on r t still to come this hour a change of tune a once a vocal critic of the russian prime minister now tells a different tale. there's very few people who would see as many horrible things
about as i did as well but he wants blame glad i'm here putin for the death of his son alexander litvinenko but now the former f.s.b. officers bothers to change his mind offering his own theory to explain what happened. plus the latest incident for the u.s. anti-corporate protesters face a heavy handed police response we ask how the occupy movement will cope with a vixen from a part they have occupied since early october. but before we get to that saturday was a day of demonstrations in russia more than two hundred thousand people gathered across the country voicing their political views ahead of next month's presidential vote two of the largest rallies happened in the capital was supporters and opponents of the car. leadership braving bitter cold to have their voices heard it was the third and largest opposition gathering after the parliamentary vote two months ago that protesters say was a break now their main demand is for their presidential votes and march political
analysts to be true babbage says there is no split in russian society but the rallies will positively influence the political climate the country. it's mostly just emotions fueled by the media some people are obvious that you would pay to seen the same two faces on television maybe too much in the last few months especially that some people were terrified when they saw all of that position and its small incident when they failed to handle the west behind it so it's mostly media driven there is no real struggle behind it there are people and reach people in both radius there are people of all kinds of ethnic groups. so right now i think it's mostly a positive effect because it is so the wakes of the government to the needs of the people so until now the consequence of smoke more schiphol if i hope it will continue. to wait if there is
a real split in society of course it's not going to be good for the country. often researcher f. william engdahl thinks the west is funding the russian opposition to minimize the country's influence on the world stage during a critical time. it's documented from the records of the national endowment for democracy which is a washington government financed oh it's all over the place in russia they're financing activists in. several different cities in russia i think really their expectation is to create as much internal unrest in russia as possible to distract the prospective new putin presidency at a time when russia is going to face challenges with the missile defense with the destabilization of the assad regime in syria the attempt to create a regime change in iran and throughout the middle east and you raise or to try to divert any russian any incoming russian government from dealing with these crises
they're trying to do the same template they used in ukraine with the orange revolution in georgia to bring saakashvili into power as a pro nato president in that country and i don't think it will work in russia i whatever mistakes the putin. tenure has brought with it whatever discontent is i think there are a lot of things that have significantly improved over the last years since the time of the yeltsin era. but that that really isn't the point the point is u.s. interference in internal russian election affairs is something that ought not to be tolerated and it's quite right not to tolerate it. and there's more about moscow's rival rallies online as thousands gathered for a day of protests in our photographer. check out the pictures on our facebook profile and there's more analysis on this and more on other top stories at our.
