but if they are trying to alter the foundations of our state and we all have to be tougher and make new. teachers and some lothians have already started to act this lawyer told us you had numerous reports of people being blackmailed from taking part in the voting those who would not talk on camera afraid of sanctions but. some are already scared to go voting their employer told them that should he see a stamp in the past birth and they took part in the language referendum then he would immediately fire them. the russian speaking minority and a lot of is estimated at three hundred thousand people out of the population of almost two and a quarter million another three hundred twenty thousand ethnic russians are classed as non-citizens and are forbidden from voting this ban experts say could prove to be crucial russian may become law to a second state language only if at least seven hundred fifty thousand people vote for it organizers of the referendum say realistically there will be only half of

that the result will be then deemed unconstitutional but may still become a major talking point like this russians hope that the referendum will help brussels notice their distress call and have a hard talk with the vote takes place on february eighteenth with a final official results a few days later. r.t. reporting from reader in la. well democracy has become a profitable export for one international group that started off as a student movement in serbia but with the backing of the us became a worldwide brand for revolution but is this the confident investigate. this is the business of selling a lot at sky high heels barely there clothes revolutionary styles exported from the fashion capitals of the world hello i'm moderately evil on my research and this is the business of selling well drivel ocean as fresh
5:20 am
exporting how to lessons and revolution aided by the democracy capital of the world democracies after all aren't born knowing how to run themselves a decade ago merivale launched a serbian students movement that helped oust president slobodan milosevic. the group was called out for resistance and it bore the now familiar symbol of the clenched fist but behind the spontaneity of the uprisings was a carefully researched strategy guided by the west no boy somalia is a balkans columnist who's been chronicling the events in serbia since one nine hundred ninety nine the or poor movement itself was just a tiny student organization that it got subverted taken over the operatives then expanded it turned it into a branding empire and ended up basically one ing the ground the grassroots level of the revolution thus turning it into an astroturf where they were run by the needy which very openly goes in and says our goal is to more promote democracy
5:21 am
a new york times investigation documented the extent of u.s. assistance according to journalist roger cohen poor was no ramshackle students group but a well oiled movement backed by several million dollars from the u.s. but the objective is regime change the objective is to install a government that will execute orders the worst thing about all this is that it's undermining a concept that enabled the united states to claim moral leadership in the world in the first place with milosevic gone ivan marriage now spends his time advise young activists abroad never. since i've been traveling the world and teaching people how to get rid of their pesky dictators so you come up with these three easy steps so you too can get in on the action and laugh your way to freedom the video was made by students at the school of authentic journalism in mexico for narco news t.v. but ivan has helped develop a video game called
5:22 am
a force more powerful in which players can practice scenarios like organizing mass protests and overthrowing dictators today outpour is called canvas and with the help of the internet their methods and symbols are exploited the world over from the color revolutions in georgia and ukraine to venezuela and the arab spring uprisings in egypt william engdahl has written for over thirty years about washington secret geopolitics he's convinced the canvas is not acting alone the instigators of those the so-called spontaneous protest was twitter revolts in cairo and tunisia and so forth have all been pretty organized and should you assume some of the people leaders of the protests have been trained in the belgrade in serbia by old poor activists financed by the state department. this thing has the state department and u.s. intelligence all over it three easy steps and that's all it takes to overthrow your very own government so this revolution become a commodity or
5:23 am
a product that could be branded popish to mass produce an export out all across the globe well just like ivan's video this too of course is a spoof but the game of regime change is quite real and its unintended consequences can be downright dangerous. since delta mostly the american taxpayer i think is getting. the short end of the bargain because there are there are bankrolling people that are going around the world fomenting astroturf revolutions that are eventually backfiring and they're backfiring all over the place and once the people find out who was behind this their anger turns. the american government can do better can people once your boss resign you can begin with. an easy recipe but the aftermath may be the hardest to see catherine of our washington . up next here on our to the latest from the world business with natasha stay with us.

hello are you watching the business program on r t russia's gazprom has acknowledged that it temporarily reduced gas supplies to european consumers the company said it had to cut deliveries by as much as ten percent for more details i'm now joined by ups on a boy was that gal's problems head quarters so what reason has gazprom given for cutting gal supplies. yes the title of the figure that you just mentioned ten percent was was during a meeting between russia's prime minister and gas problems deputy c e o m drake or glow of crude glow sad that there is cuts to european suppliers stayed in place for just a few days and they were caused by an enormous search in domestic consumption russia as you may know is battling ever very severe cold damp right now with temperatures hovering far below the averages for this time of the year and this is
5:25 am
a result the demand for heating fuel has significantly increased now also sad that as of now russia is supplying gas to europe in accordance with its contractual obligations he also said that some european countries that are also dealing with these unusually cold temperatures have turned to gas from for additional supplies requesting supplies that go above contractual obligations it is still unclear where the gas from will be able to meet this additional demand economically it would would make all the sounds because at this stage gas prices are at their record levels with about four hundred years dollars being paid for a thousand cubic meters of gas but it is as i said i'm clear whether russia can afford to do so because the domestic demand is still very high these. cold front is not expected to move away and to late february and gas from has already increased
5:26 am
its production until up to its peak levels of about one point six b.c.m. and on top of that russia's prime minister vladimir putin who is going into presidential elections last than two months from now already said that satisfying domestic demand was gas from his number one priority even though putin also urged us from to do everything in its power everything that is possible to satisfy the needs of european customers both within the contractual obligations and those above it. thanks for the sub date that was our t. correspondent us on a boycott. and now investors may focus on monday is the talks between greek party leaders europe is waiting for athens to safe it's ready to accept the strict terms of a new bailout deal without a greece is facing a high probability of a default in march. and let's now check the markets exchange rates first the euro is slightly lower against both the dollar and the russian ruble meanwhile the u.s.

5:29 am

5:30 am
seeing from the streets of canada. giant corporations are on the day. you're a thirty eight live from moscow our top stories back to basics the e.u. moles over fresh back anomic punishment for president also the syrian regime after failing to push through a polarizing u.n. resolution. modern technology to support political activism prime minister putin goes all mine in his bid to improve russian democracy. by the winds of change in line as the country's russian minority hopes to win an upcoming referendum that could see their native language officially recognized this is the latest attempt by
5:31 am
ethnic russians to secure their political right. well when asked about the possibility of a military strike on iran u.s. and israeli officials continue to say that all options are on the table in the midst of sky high tensions between the west and tehran we asked the former chief of israeli intelligence service for his take on the ongoing confrontation that interview is up next. when you have mistaken for him had levy before we hade our israeli intelligence agency the more side mr halevi thank you very much for joining us here on r.t. a nuclear iran with iran is there with the option yes there is a third option the third option is a non-nuclear iran with. an agreement an understanding with the iranians that they will not become nuclear. and that they will be reintroduced into the family of
5:32 am
nations from which they have been virtually expelled in recent months. under terms which will also take into account some of their interests and some of. this how possible is this option i think is very possible because i think the international pressure which is being building up in recent months is beginning to have serious effects inside iran on the economics on the moral side. and i think that the basic interest of the people in charge in iran. is to maintain the position to maintain power do you think you will poses an existential threat to israel any other state in the region. i am on record. repeatedly saying that i don't think there is such a thing as an existential threat to israel because i think israel is strong enough to protect itself to take care of itself and i think that ultimately it's not in
5:33 am
the power of iran to destroy the state of israel so why does these weighty leadership insist on presenting iran as this big danger i believe that their leadership believes that in order to arouse international public opinion in order to mount pressure upon the iranians it's necessary to impress upon the world at large and public opinion that the national public opinion is. this is a serious international threat and i believe that in this context probably the leadership here believes that using the word existence will rings a bell which also brings you back to days gone by in the twentieth century. a rise of nazi germany the world war two and of course the holocaust and. these apparitions these. pictures these experiences recalled in order to impress upon the world that maximum pressure should be mounted on the run
5:34 am
does israel have a nuclear weapon. i don't know and if i knew i didn't think this would be the opportunity for me to say something positive and definitive on that but i think that there is in the world an assumption there is in the world a feeling that israel has something up its sleeve and i think that this is something which is important in the present situation because a part of the name of the game now is deterrence and i think it's very important to deter iran and if you run believes that israel has certain capabilities where it has it or not i think this is a. positive card in the hands of israel what would be better if israel and demanded both had nuclear weapons only from your head. i've been asked that question before and i think it's a theoretical question. what you're alluding to is in the end is that has the time for israel to. change its policy of what we call the opaque.
5:35 am
methods of presenting what we have or not and i don't think that this time is a road to the reason i've been before as far as the mossad is concerned would you define if coming to a mission as preventing war or weakening iran in the case that does happen i think that it is the mission of the mossad to do everything in. its capability is true. make a. threat which has been posed to israel dormant what capabilities does the mossad have when it comes to iran where here again i don't think that it would be useful for me to a whole list of capabilities i think these are the capabilities which every intelligence organization i think it's important to say that we have been involved in what we call a clandestine war for quite some time with iran and what's interesting about this war is of course that both sides have more or less preferred the details of this
5:36 am
war the details of various events be not exposed to the public when you talk about can this time of war be killing of ukrainian scientists accidents in the ring implants computer viruses is this what you're referring to i'm referring to all range of activity is i will not confirm anything which you have just now mentioned but i was serving that there is a long range of activities that have been carried being carried on for a very very long time over a very long period of time and i think that the activities of registered on the other side very very significantly and i will not say anything more than that if war was to break out on whose side were to keep on the one hand it is a nato member but it's also at odds with israel turkey would not like a nuclear iran on its borders and i don't think that turkey in the end would lend.
5:37 am
capabilities or preventing capabilities to either so my guess is that in a situation like this. turkey would take a neutral position when it will missions we knew we had of them aside was to promote ties between israel and lifting the states so how would you see the current policy of what many say is israel's isolation particularly with regard to its former allies egypt and turkey. look upon this in a different light than you have just. mentioned if i would look at the situation israel is in today compared to what it was in before the peace process began in one nine hundred seventy seven seventy eight when egypt launched its initiatives towards israel i think the two situations are not comparable we lived for thirty years from forty eight to seventy seven seventy eight in the situation of isolation we are not isolated today in the region we have our differences we have more than
5:38 am
just differences we have bones of contention with some of the countries like with turkey we have gone through a very difficult time and this was egypt is concerned egypt is also going through a very difficult time and i don't think that it's in the interest of egypt to abrogate the israeli egyptian peace treaty egypt does not need a war now on its northern borders since you retired from the side you have. a genuine interest among some emain ians and from israel to promote peace i have many rainier's in international fora not had private relations or private contacts with iranians there are many iranians the way i see it who would like the present confrontation between israel and iran to gradually end and create a new situation the likes of which we have in from forty eight to seventy eight because iran and israel basically do not have bones of contention we know there are
5:39 am
issues territorial issues between ourselves we don't have other kinds of issues between ourselves we have ideological issues between ourselves and i think it would be wrong for iran to enable ideology to be the main driver of its policies and the calls of serious drawbacks which it has been suffering as a result of putting ideological ideology on. front burner what are some of the discussions and some of the questions that all rave at these informal meetings you have the radios who say look israel has no right to exist israel should disappear israel is not a natural entity in the middle east and then you have these same irradiance coming the saying we believe that israel has a nuclear capability israel should sign the n.p.t. the improved ration treaty just as we have i should reveal what it has. called into the nations only nations and countries can be members of the n.p.t.
5:40 am
so you cannot on the one hand demand that israel should sign the n.p.t. on the other hand deny israel's right to exist and i've said to them that i believe that this is something which is unacceptable a second point has been israel has insisted on its be recognized as a jewish state. and they have said to me look we don't say that france in its title doesn't say the christian state or from us or the christian state or britain or the catholic state of germany and so forth and i've said to them that why do you say the islamic republic of iran if you raise the word islamic we will raise the word jewish and they say no that's different why is it different this is the kind of. discussion we have had to put it that way sometimes very very. heated discussion in your opinion would it be good or bad for israel if assad's regime force. let me first say that israel has no way of influencing the results of present. events in
5:41 am
syria i believe that assad is going to fall and i think that ultimately will fall in a way which will cause a lot of bloodshed. and i think that this bloodshed will have enormous effects on the history of syria and maybe of neighboring countries as well i must it is very likely to have a new tune how will this play into israeli palestinian reconciliation efforts if at all one person i'm not sure how much will have a new leader. certainly i don't think the national has been the most extreme of the leaders of the hamas he's also on record as saying that he's a temporarily to accept a palestinian state in temporary borders which is something which moves in its significance to a first step in recognizing the fact that the state of israel is here to stay my view is and i know this is not the view which is shared by the government of israel
5:42 am
at the moment that ultimately we will have to deal with the actors the way they are and i think the potential of finding ways and means of dealing with them in a way which will not insure the basic interests of israel i find highly of me thank you very much for joining us here on r t thank you.
