hello and welcome to aussie twenty four hour news live from moscow i mean you know what with the latest news and a review of the week's events the result region of crossing a die and this salsa russia is picking up the pieces after the was natural disaster it's history flash flooding killed over one hundred seventy people and destroyed thousands of poems he's done his battle skase in the region for us. it was a night of terror for the people of green in almost an instant the small town was virtually swept away by a torrent of rain and mud deluged by a giant wave of up to seven meters dwarfing most of the buildings there wellington was lucky to survive in a sudden burning queue walk up with wife and son before rushing to help an elderly disabled neighbor presuming experience what arose immediately with dread to do something to save our belongings but the water was everywhere it was how town was
saved ourselves and we climbed up onto the roof and spices. others who are not so lucky with many elderly people in particular are found amongst the dead in the morning so viber is desperately needed help pressure water dry clothes and food their s.o.'s message was answered thousands of emergency workers people from all walks of life rushed to crimps medical students assisted doctors vaccinating survivors fashion model and philanthropist but earlier with two gifts for children after an appeal of facebook i just left everything and came here just to just to clarify because i felt i had to and to see how how i myself can be helpful but also before doing that i kind of just got to do whatever we could in one day and we get . tons of half of it is still. very necessary provision many locals refused to believe the official account but the flood was
caused by torrential rains rumors that the deluge followed the discharge of water from a reservoir continued some spread by the social media triggering a second wave of panic hundreds of people will gather here fearing that the new wave of floods is coming into town nobody says where they got this information basically people rely on rumors the false alarm however did not stop people from once again returning to their homes and continuing the massive operation these people just arrived from their volunteers they brought shovels rubber gloves everything that is needed to clean up the debris and many flood victims took matters into their own hands literally diving for their belongings greetings to come chats car i mean it's an earthquake there and when i came here i got hit by a floods the russian government and regions of thord gees are to compensate victims with cash and help to rebuild their homes or new ones but those left with nothing and even though it may take weeks and months to get things back to normal this
current southern russia is just refusing to give up even though the town has. badly here it looks like the people of greensburg have not lost hope and against all odds they're staying and helping each other to rebuild their homes and their lives. crossing the region. the timeline of the tragedy that swept through southern russia is available on our web site and there's plenty more on this story at home for you that you can see the photos and footage from the scene of the disaster that devastated towns and communities in southern russia. let's move on now un observers probing a mass killing is serious harm the province have confirmed the regimes claims that its military was targeting rebel fighters in the area and this contradicts the opposition's report of a civilian massacre something the u.s. and its allies rushed to support what is more if you notion of brings us more from the capital damascus. but your enemies are attrition hit syria has visited the village of tremseh in the syrian central province of hama hours after the news of
much about the alleged massacre there and they've confirmed fierce clashes between the rebels and the governmental forces took place on the ground but this concludes is that an attack apparently by the government of forces appeared targeted at specific houses and specific groups especially on into faxes and opposition activists and this conclusion actually contradicts initial reports that we've been hearing from syrian opposition here that they've been very fortunate this is been a massacre the opposition has also claims that at least two hundred people most of whom civilians have been killed in this incident actually what the international observers have discovered is in line with what we've been hearing from official sources here in damascus that the army launched an assault against rebel hope but in this village in the province of hama we've been hearing accounts from official sources that the army even allowed some time for local residents of this village to
evacuate and that was only off to the rebels refused to surrender that's going to intensify didn't this village following this assault officials have come to me to say that they've seized many weapons from what they call word terrorist and they've killed many of them and even captured some of them and we've seen apparently some of these people on syrian t.v. here in damascus and this can fast they were involved in this incident in what happened in the village of tremseh and they've even sad that they were given weapons that abides forces from abroad and especially from turkey while problems continues to rage everywhere call syria it still remains unclear exactly who the syrian government the syrian regime is fighting against his more important that since the uprising in syria escalated the west has been consistently calling on assad and. government to step down the defectively want to give in to the demands
of the armed opposition but it seems so far there is no clear understanding of who exactly they are. the media. these fighters of the syrian opposition they're brave determined full of pride they took their fate in their hands. but for some taken control of their destiny meant taken up arms in this amateur video posted on you tube which cannot be independently verified gunmen calling themselves members of the opposition militia from it live explain why this man was hanged and which he helped the syrian regime and it was killing the rebels they say i am. on behalf of all friends let me express my admiration by their bravery over the north but this kind of justice only adds more anger to what has already been called a civil war. with a terrorist group or those murders i believe is necessary for any
citizen to leave these. we cannot ask the opposition to unilaterally give up their struggle for justice dignity and self-determination in any other video whose origin is hard to establish these men say they captured the syrian air force officer then they dispense even more rough justice but united states will continue providing non-lethal assistance to help those inside syria who are carrying the fight to organize and better communicate. in this video of the boys behind the camera says the fight must go on it warns this will happen to anyone who cooperates with the assad government. they are top criminals these people type of criminality how do you have the right feel sad when
you find your country destroyed our country we've been building all our lives the whole world wants to see a political transition from this illegitimate regime to actually see one that can take care of its people many however fear that should such people force assad to leave since like these could become a familiar occurrence and have little faith in a western force democracy. where they're talking about democracy in the gulf or in other countries we are syrian people we should decide these things ourselves. this mantra that the syrian people alone should determine their country's future has been repeated by many nations and has finally been recognized by major world powers but why some states still continuing to call on assad to leave and support in his opponents fears mounting syria but this is the people that will pay the ultimate price. r.t.
from damascus in syria. a blast has hit a security force bus in the capital damascus reportedly wounding several people is the latest in a string of attacks on government sites with the authorities blame on terror groups middle east expert says the rest has modified greatly but the government is now forced to wage war against militants who have infiltrated syria. the situation is calm change completely there are still peaceful protest is but there's an increasing number not only of deserted army people but also of jihadists of islamic scientists who have the only purpose to fight. government and as far as western media are concerned well they follow the general pattern would started from the beginning the victim or the rogue is bashar as such and we have to also it's the same strategy which hillary clinton promoted right
from the beginning and many nearly all the governments from nato states they followed this pattern so they're not really interested in the vast majority of the media they stick to this fishel pattern which is promoted by the western governments. staying in the region bahrain's ban on opposition rallies hasn't stopped until regime demonstrators from taking to the streets despite fresh clashes and arrest activists promise to escalate the protests and american academic collin carvel has spent a lot of time in the region says a crime down on dissent in bahrain makes the country's criticism toward syria illegitimate. the al khalifa are continuing to be very scary. as pro-democracy opposition has a quarter mile with three quarters of the population are firing tear gas canisters
. injuring many of the protesters and killing some of the older people just in the protest because this is only two. and of course the georgians continue to jail and continue. and how areas to many observers and international about the so-called friends of syria are being backed by. autocratic monarch in the world saudi arabia. bahrain regimes that have no history of democracy and all. this free syrian army bunch of mercenaries have no legitimacy. and along with bahrain saudi arabia has been stepping up its ground down to government iran is activists say two men were killed in the oil rich eastern province after police opened fire on protesters triggered by the arrest of a prominent shiite cleric last sunday extra troops have been deployed to the area
to prevent a father run these by the shia population which has long complained of discrimination by the ruling sunni family. most of the council in the program including a look at how it went once and now paying the price of greece's financial woes the racist surgeon arthur earns as extreme right wing functions galvanized public anger and paid for his as a source of greece's trouble. and also he investigates a mysterious a ranch in the grass mountains allegedly harboring russian children adopted by american foster parents and later abandoned. that later before that havoc on the streets of spain this week pent up public rage over the government's austerity drive spilled on to the streets and clashes with police so precious sparked by minus the ground this wednesday the police reactions saw over seventy people injured in searing clashes riot cloud cap spider rubber bullets at the
demonstrators with many activists and detained the government in madrid this friday approved a new round of cuts precondition to our euro zone rescue do you. want to say so or just call us direct i was pleased that after all of those the prime minister should resign. their tendency is to think maybe that. protestors have become desensitized to all of the police violence because we've been dealing with it for years but today we saw pictures of you know images of an eleven year old child shot in the head with a rubber bullet ok we've seen we've seen policemen with no with no badges of course that's become you know standard operating procedure for them basically i don't know how much further they can really play. you know if money not a whole you had any sense of decency or even a fragment of the dignity that miners and the the protesters the indignados have that he would resign along with the rest of his government he's broken every campaign promise that he's made some even comical levels you know his entire party
was saying that raising the sales tax was you know one thinkable and all that and now we have a twenty one percent sales tax and i think people are are wising up to this you know they see a lot of similarities between what was happening in this country forty fifty years ago and and what's happening today meanwhile on the other side of the military and in greece austerity drew and rioting and ploughs has moved into something much more sinister than into taksin immigrants searching as extreme right wing factions revel in their new found public support they've pledged to rid the country of all immigrants and all you've been watching volunteers to donate blood to greeks only take a greece now from here. all around the country crumbles some parts of greece acing firm foundations take root. we want a nationalistic state all of them should go back to where they came from the word
of an elected official as unemployment grows hand in hand with extremist sentiments looking for people to blame for their current plight the golden dawn party has proven to be the prime outlet for public anger get that if you ask me about violence i would have to say yes we do have violence increase the not the violence you're suggesting it is the violence that thousands of greek suffer from by those gangs of foreigners that we have allowed to govern accumulate in our land. despite spouting racism from the podium and scandals including physically assaulting politicians live on air the party still secured around seven percent of the vote in the parliamentary elections. campaigning with a promise to throw all sick immigrants out of their hospital beds and then send three pledge as having dark consequences as greece and in particular athens have seen a spike in the number of hate crimes that have seen almost they are that's the part
that's at play or can i suppose. turn savary seeming that these attacks are happening at night and therefore ever doesn't integrate by people who are often for debt and armed with clubs. came to greece two years ago fleeing war torn somalia but he's found no peace in athens i want to wish if i'd known what it was going to be like here i would never have left somalia from what happened to you when you're attacked. they beat me to the ground and ran over my leg with a bike. his case is by no means unique the mother of these children was also assaulted while pregnant the perpetrators remain at large this in neighborhoods like this in central athens where an increasing number of attacks are taking place the so-called vigilante groups in disco targeting ethnic minorities. victims say
there's little point turn to the police they're just not interested. greece's immigrant influx is worse than any other e.u. country is poorest border of turkey where ninety percent of all those seeking refuge and to europe and in a country that circling the drain and nationalist rhetoric flooding into mainstream politics anything that the lads waylaid that here are the eventual group minute tiredest insists it's an e.u. wide problem one which hard pressed greece ends up paying for twice with a double into agreement what happens is once while you're telling me graham has been caught in there in another place in europe he's going back to the country that he ended in europe and absent that means they end up in greece while athens pleads for more e.u. support the refugees just keep on coming but danger for them is not the trouble
they're fleeing from the fire of extremism they're entering j.q. griese r.t. happens. and you can always had to ask for more on all of our stories including unrest in a zero dozens of wanting to mark a good since the start of my social process in the country with one man in tel aviv even setting himself on fire and. at the. japanese do you want to sound a russian astronauts head into orbit to carry out unique scientific experiments. of the incredible launch at altitude of. but it's clearly active in nonprofit groups working in russia and funded from abroad may soon come under tough scrutiny a bill that forces such organizations to register as foreign agents has passed its first stage of approval in the country house of parliament the groups will have to
undergo financial audit's and submit reports of their activities otherwise they will face heavy fines or even jail terms and critics immediately labeled a move on a time when civil liberties while supporters say it will help boost transparency the u.s. has launched the bill despite having introduced an almost identical law and with more here's our washington correspondent for. the west hurried to dump the proposed legislation as a kremlin crackdown on n.g.o.s pressures of money flow where is the money coming. towards you or your organization so you get transparency you get regulation you get some monitoring of. these are all things a nation a sovereign nation is allowed to do u.s. officials were quick to express concern presenting it as an exclusively russian initiative but as the russian foreign minister said the concept and even the wording of the proposed law was almost entirely borrowed from the american bill
called the foreign agents registration act if you work in united states if you work for another country you have to register as an agent not that country. never again that's that's not a negative but it means they are representing their country and then also be know if you get in on the employment of any foreign nation veronica question in nicaragua says while in the u.s. she was forced to register as a foreign agent even though she was not involved in any political activities. i was a representative from st petersburg we promoted economy corporation to reason cultural ties nevertheless the u.s. justice department which. when you touristic two meters of foreign agents insisted that representatives of cities also registered as foreign agents oh a version of the law doesn't even include non political actors like that the foreign agents registration act in the u.s.
quote requires persons acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi i political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principle as well as a pivotal receipts and disbursements in support of those activities end of quote the sponsors of the russian bill say their version is almost identical with the american law the u.s. argues the difference is that their law doesn't address nonprofit organizations but many see another difference i need a new suit in the u.s. doesn't have thousands of forming organizations which work to change its constitution to change its leadership but we in russia do have a situation when scores of organizations work precisely on that for example when some and calls for people to join a protest they have the right to know who's behind that and on whose payroll they are members of some non-governmental organizations met with hillary clinton behind closed doors in st petersburg afterwards one of them media the russkie said the sector estate is aware of the proposed law and quote is searching for ways to
modify the support of russia's n.g.o.s without subjecting them to a crackdown end of quote and we say non governmental organizations many of these organizations are government funded right so they get some of their funding from from the government of the united states anyway so and she is saying that then that they certainly do and they are certainly going to either get over it when maybe she's hinting at covertly i don't know many of the n.g.o.s in russia which get their financing from abroad to preach openness and transparency and the sponsors of this washington bill argue it only makes sense that they themselves are subject to the same principles of transparency i'm going to check on in washington are to. on the second day of her visit to egypt u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton has met with field marshal hussein ten tali chief of the country's armed forces clinton asked him to hunt over power to islamist president mohamed morsi as quickly as possible but. journalist believes
washington hasn't yet picked a side in the egyptian power struggle washington has always been supporting the power structure that serves its purposes respective of whether they are democratic or not so currently they really don't care what kind of forces are there as long as they give the u.s. what it actually requires which is the foreign policy not to interfere with it and to make sure they have political and military allies so whatever the news new system in the new regime is in egypt but i think that what the u.s. is trying to do right now is to wait for to see who wins in the political battle that is ongoing between the muslim brotherhood and the military and reinforce the power structure that results out of that. a duo to help save children adopted by families in the united states has been ratified by the russian parliament they
chandra's come hot on the heels of chilling examples of abuse against russian children by their adoptive american parents. just some eight kilometers from the canadian border stands a remote trains hidden in the mountains and forests of this northwest part of the u.s. for many adopted children from russia who have found themselves abandoned once again this remote train in the state of montana has become their last resort after so much rejection but despite its noble goal care homes like this and there are several across the country are close to the outside world it's almost impossible to discover the fate of these neglected children last week russia's children strides commissioner pavel a star tried to visit the range but it was denied access to the children living there. with their assume many lies about the real conditions of tutoring adopted by u.s. parents we have no idea what's really going on i know there were twenty four russian
children of different ages and as i understand it they were all removed just days before my visit this incident in montana happened only a week before a long awaited agreement concerning the well being of russian children adopted by u.s. families was to come into force russia has long been demanding information from u.s. authorities on the fate of children after they have been taken in by adoptive families but under u.s. law once a child is legally adopted the state has no specific responsibility to monitor or oversee how they are doing with their new families once an adoption is foreign allies in any state in the united states that child is considered as is born to those legal adoptive. there is. no further intervention at all on part of the adoption agency in rison years it's an issue that has caused several
difficulties in relations between the two countries since russia suspended adoption of its children by americans that was prompted by widespread outrage after a tennessee mother sent her adopted eight year old son back to moscow alone with a known saying she no longer wanted him and that was no isolated case nineteen russian children have been killed or badly injured since overseas adoptions began in nine hundred ninety one including seven year old you violence got about god was beaten to death by his american foster parents you know. and this harrowing example from twenty ten when an american mother filmed herself punishing her adoptive little russian boy i want you like to me. you did. this works like to me what it is what you tell me.
was that when you see me. jessica beagley was charged with child abuse and there's untold numbers of children who have been and are being abused but it isn't stable and so it doesn't make headlines we have no way of knowing though there has been some progress in the political arena there were thousands of russian children fostered an adopted across the u.s. and while some may well have phone loving families nobody knows just how many a suffering the fate of little events could have i got the idea of course there are two reporting from los angeles california. after days and out the back with a recap of our top stories a short. wealthy
