5:05 am
some of the areas where the this is by things being breaking out and you can see on the ground smooth slow steps are being taken in the observers are really going to be one thing over the coming period the building on the observers are also based full time in some cities like homs and many have felt that their presence there has bought some. we have little time between stops to speak to the people who live here those we do talk to tell us that the last few days being quiet they don't know how long that will last in a situation as much there's not much happening to. them about people brown. people shooting bread away i don't know exactly what was happening we're here at the checkpoints on the device the other day you know the u.n. has just done a tour through the area it's been a very very fast trip they've literally driven through stopping at some of the military checkpoints around speak to some of the people but no more than five ten

5:12 am
think it's a fairly simple deal and people will be able to see through it does a tremendous injustice to the memory of those victims who are not a liberal and i think it does a tremendous injustice to the thing that we call the justice system in america they have no plan and it's taken three years to get to this particular point and this is going to be another tremendous and sad waste of us resources on a matter that can be resolved in a number of different ways and they just said not to do so deal with r.c. and still ahead here the south should expect from two cents a return to the top job on the eve of the president elect you know here a show that will bring you an expert's opinion from the west on cross specs placed the time in office. does u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton places a recent talks with china relations between the two sides that still clock is in doubt. so present dmitri medvedev has just one more day to enjoy
5:13 am
in the kremlin before handing out that have led to a person has rushed into all the credit for his liberal views and to push for reforms as well as steering ever set of relations with the u.s. but about his presidency also saw some of the largest protests in modern russian history also has an isa now it takes a look back at his time at the top. but easy. for a season gave you get out. to meet not believe me the video. one term in the kremlin was it too little time to make a dent mr medvedev is going to be remembered as someone who had genuine reform intentions and who was impeded on achieving all of those reforms through the political process through the structure of the political system. at the dawn of his presidency georgia attacked south is said to here by the media and much of the world community blamed russia destroy goes in this case that only
5:14 am
but he did the actions on the georgian side led to deficit among them a russian peacekeepers children women the elderly a dying in south setting most of them are citizens of the russian federation those responsible for the deaths of our citizens will be punished mr got. them right in the misconception that russia attacked georgia put serious strain on international ties into an independent council of europe report up out that georgia launched the attack for months madrid of foreign policy was overshadowed by the war but it wasn't long before a warming in u.s. relations something many argue is his foreign policy legacy they were the russian president at the time the reset button press the u.s. and russian relations devoutly improved over the next few years by twenty ten medvedev and obama signed a new start and cut both country's nuclear arsenals by
5:15 am
a third. as a result of hard work we've created a treaty that fully complies with the interests of both russia and the u.s. back home medvedev wants reforms focusing on the justice system and rule of law you want the less people behind bars. less persecution. businesspeople. just special justified persecution. less corruption and i think that he has managed to start some cases jump start the process. but little changed on high profile cases like me ski precious former richest man still serving his sentence for economic crimes madrid has pushed for modernization and diversification could have been a highlight of his presidency and he still has
5:16 am
a chance to if he presses on as prime minister. we can be sure that without modernization the russian economy has no future it may be based on vast natural resources but we cannot rely only on them the job swap with putin was the last straw for medvedev supporters who hoped he would run for a second term but the secrecy and surprise of the smart added to the negative sentiment prior to the biggest protests russia has seen hears. in december after claims of vote fraud in the parliamentary election medvedev came back on line in laid out changes but his response was too little too late yet but if i propose complex reforms to our political system. i don't discuss that i hear the people who are demanding changes and i understand it
5:17 am
can. be outlined a series of measures including the easy registration for political parties and direct polls for regional leaders maybe it is administration continues to strasse how much work is left as he prepares to step aside as president and take over as prime minister. as it will continue on the present all initiatives all the strategy has been discussed. hume here you proved all the things the government was a key vehicle to implement all the initiatives put forth by prison conveyed if the critics aren't convinced debates are buzzing over what make it it's like it will be and how his policies might be implemented with him back in the family that made it through this move this president would have only seen real results during or even after a second term in office leaving the question of how do you draw the line between
5:18 am
what we did as president what he might do. and used to now wait our team. and a day before a military person returns to the kremlin antigovernment protesters or takes to moscow streets opposition activists initially promised a march of millions but now say they expect only around five thousand people to turn up and mohsin mccauley a russian specialist at the university of london believes putin will have to prove he has a new strategy to reach out to those who feel neglected. putin challenge is to define himself as a new leader to provide a vision for the future because he's coming in the third term president and many young people would say why a third term why not somebody new we need something new in the new challenges and so on and we'd like to see a new vision and a new face so his challenge is really to say to people i've got a new vision. and this is the way we're going to go forward and the key to it of
5:19 am
course is the economy the distribution of wealth rejection of corruption and he has to look at the established elites in a very powerful economic elites which don't want anything to change they want to keep their wealth and so on but the the new rising middle class the professionals and so on would like to participate and his challenge is really to reach out to the people outside the elites we must diversify the infrastructure has to be rebuilt china's ratio ahead russia has to compete with china he's got to be if you like very dominating but also a charismatic leader and of course while they're bringing you live reports on the anti-government rally in the central moscow as it's set to begin at noon g.m.t. today and on monday join us fall special coverage of listen if it is integration from seven thirty g.m.t. in the morning.
