7:04 am
physical abuse reported physical abuse by prison guards on timoshenko certainly cause lots of controversy abroad with some politicians on the highest levels in european countries saying that they will boycott the euro twenty twelve championship which is starting in a little more than a month from now and those politicians including the german chancellor angela merkel the highest ranking politicians in the netherlands in the czech republic in germany so it is unclear whether whether this development in the story whether the fact of hospitalisation will ease the tension whether those politicians who are willing to boycott the euro twenty twelve will decide to come here eventually but certainly this is something of a big step forward in this story because for up to this moment the authorities have been saying that they will not allow you to machine go to be treated by any foreign doctors on the ukrainian soil or anywhere abroad we even heard an offer from to put
7:05 am
in which you have to michigan treated in russia but the authorities in ukraine denounce that such possibility could even happen so certainly we waiting to see for any reactions from you. but hopefully most of the politicians will change their opinion and will be able to come to the euro twenty twelve period in month time. reporting there now as of lot of may of putin settles into his role back at the top of russian politics groups of opposition activists have continued their isolated walks and sit ins across the center of moscow they've been going on for three days now protesters now have a joint a sanctioned communist rally in the city and they're marching with them. grieves he's at the scene. officially this rally has been tires of the company's car sales of course it has got a story about boxing champion of the great victories i first saw you here and here but it also is a very normal day party with our first woman being standing against the do more let since it's

7:07 am
other mass now the number rests on the back of this two hundred is the official figure for just yesterday alone although protesters put the figure much higher than that you know among them they have doubts of the head of the left from the left from the government he has been detained on a number of occasions he stood attention and he say he may go on hunger strike also alexina bounty and seek russian oh you know for someone who's not a few people are very active and we think you know you guys you know say see why yes he has been detained now speaking to some of those in the crowd associated with the what remove for free and fair let. it's things they want off this right to do to another and again this cast and mouse game with police they sit down and if they get moved on and they go elsewhere all this action comes on the back of quite a markedly violent demonstration that took place on sunday just ahead of the no gration of lot of a person as president so clashes between police and protesters injuries being
7:08 am
sustained over close ties with the high level of the rest of protesters and police saying that some of the demonstrators who are quite violent how you guys are trying to rip off they're right here. now the action began a day ahead of putin's integration which was held on monday and he certain now i am political analyst dmitri babich they try to understand who's driving the protests. who is the russian opposition well of course it depends who you ask but also if you take a look for yourself what you'll see most often are a lot of different colors organizations and parties well to help us kind of decipher who's who in this i think we can call modern russian opposition is dmitri bobbitt he's a political analyst for voice of russia radio thanks for being with us i want to start with alexis in the widely and surrogate self just because they're the most well known at the moment they're constantly getting arrested and being released just briefly tell us who they are and why they've become the prominent leaders of
7:09 am
our name is not a typical leftist populist like well does he use the morning to corruption and nationalist. but let's focus on the flanks for a bit looking at this video this is this is sunday's protest which for the first time turned really ugly you see these there's so and the left front it's called what what are the main focus of that party it's a flag we saw a lot of on sunday you see there these are red flags with red stars so this is an image abroad people might think it's you know a communist party because they read russia communist so what they write because it will do so for recently because. he is. left for aung to be an ally of the communist party a russian federation human being chronically ill but he should be eating all the sections get him constantly arrested that's his style that's like is that they're on i kissed where he is their traditional. russian i guess what does
7:10 am
that mean in terms of there are several groups which do not want to live themselves with the left front or with the communist party job you gone off sunday i was there and there were clearly some people who were trying to provoke violence a lot of these so-called anarchists you can see here basically were running into the riot police and also were wearing a lot of these masks. let's talk a little bit more about the nationalist side that we see sometimes i believe we don't have pictures here yet but it's. white there it is what's this is it means someone you know all of the groups all the nationalist groups that are strongly opposed to the current government strung up all white. and red. but who would not like to be associated with communists or leftists what does it mean that . when we see tens of thousands of people on the streets of moscow as opposed to small groups like we see here which we saw after the inauguration sit ins trying to happen why don't we see the thousands of the masses do we see so many different
7:11 am
flanks if they are so anti putin can't they just get under that banner all these groups have a mutually exclusive view they're not simply unthinking histogram not simply contradictory that's just including school of the nationalistic use put in of being a liberal liberal secular which would have been a nationalist the left would you know the sort of social system is a liberal secular revival in the soviet period so they can't agree on anything the only thing that they can agree on is that they don't like what they want the current russian state took away that's about to meet their bob rich political analyst from russia radio thank you very much for trying to help us understand what's happening with the opposition in russia because certainly people in the country have never been more involved in politics. and he said now i think. i need our stories or just go to our website artsy dot com that's where you can find out how politics is casting a shadow over the london olympics some countries are using prevent to question

scored in the convoy were said to have been injured now it comes after envoy kofi annan said damascus was failing to halt the violence and also warned that his peace plan is the last chance for the country to avoid a civil war. the latest details were purged the syrian ambassador to the united nations say that a number of regional arab powers are sponsoring terror in syria to undermine kofi annan plan he said the syrian government remains committed to the plan but it faces a surge of terrorist attacks including. a massive show that d.v.d. and said it has the confessions of dozens of individuals involved in terrorist activities upon the order of thirty countries here's what he said these terrorists did not come into syria. by using. they came into syria through the syrian borders with the neighboring countries so it's
7:14 am
not a secret anymore who is behind these groups the. who are giving orders and try to work through these terrorist. leave. he also accused turkey of harboring armed groups which are infiltrating syria committing crimes and returning back to turkey because syrian ambassador said what also undermines kofi annan his plan is the inflow of arms into syria now both the syrian ambassador to the u.n. and even the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. noted that there has been a decrease of violence in syria but the international envoy kofi annan said there is still a profound concern that syria is descending into full on civil war up to one hundred international observers are already working there the only said the number will reach three hundred by the end of the month so there's going to be more eyes on the ground as of now he said and i'm going to i'm going to quote here there has
7:15 am
been a worrying episodes of violence by the government but we have also seen attacks against government forces troops and installations it's very interesting how the u.s. ambassador susan rice responded to the claims made by the syrian ambassador she brushed off the question about terrorists and then she went on talking about those who took up arms to fight for their rights a very dubious question arises here is that an attempt to justify violence on one side while. the other being exclusively the syrian government susan rice confirmed it in a way with her latest statement by putting all responsibility in the hands of the syrian government and never not once mentioning the armed groups in the opposition with this regard and that despite the fact that the u.s. has accepted kofi annan plan which addresses all sides of the conflict not just the syrian government. now a quarter past the hour here in moscow israel's politicians have avoided the need for early elections after the ruling coalition announced it struck

7:17 am
for. one thing what we're seeing first is that this government doesn't really engage with with the country as a whole this hasn't been a public discussion as to whether israel should launch a strike against iran and there's also a feeling that within the government itself it's only barak committed the of themselves who are making these decisions has been no wide at the base among the smaller security cabinet or even the wider carping that israeli politicians are near hysterical when it comes to iran and they've more than hinted that a military strike is under consideration were determined to prevent iran from developing nuclear weapons. we leave all options on the table. and containment is definitely not an option. section in life. yet. even.
