and the department of homeland security so we're not one hundred percent sure it's kind of speculation at this point but nevertheless you know he's indicated that he has a law abiding u.s. citizen and really cannot think of anything that would prevent him from traveling would you accept this no fly list this is a valid and precautionary measure would you say that by banning people from the freedom of going in and out of america could be against human rights could be illegal well you know it's definitely they are they are taking away the rights of a u.s. citizen by not allowing them to fly i mean there are you know obvious security reasons to have a no fly list but if they're on if a person is on a no fly list then you know perhaps there are other reasons they should be apprehended or if they are criminals or whatnot why are they just not allowed from flying so yeah the no fly list is a good security measure if there's a reason but saavik in particular and other people are. i've been on

3:39 pm
hope the money will be negotiated by next week already it's all about this russian secret that. germany is a foreign intelligence agency issued every poor suggested that a bailout would mostly benefit rich russians that have been stashing their black money for years in cyprus banks but as far as cyprus is concerned it's notorious for being a tax haven for russian business is right i'm thinking of russian billionaires most dash of fun fact bug they have your account. right and many more than buyouts and we have to understand that there are legal offshore us has pulled the case with these as illegal ways to launder money which we are speaking about so the interesting fact is this report suggests that aid to russian oligarchs have obtained cypriot nationality which means more freedom and maneuver to do
3:40 pm
business in russia and in europe all right let's get to it let's talk money how much are we talking this report suggests that this so-called russian black money it amounts to twenty six billion euros which is much more than the cyprus so mentioned that this means that this huge amount of money is a part of cyprus. failing banks the system and unthinking taxpayers in other countries particularly just many wouldn't really be too happy about paying for russian billionaires not really that priority right i agree about cyprus the whole thing is not true its government. about this report is just an attempt to target is the country's reputation as an international investment center they also said that they've. taken very effective onto more new laundering measures and that earned plaudits from the international monetary fund ok let's. get
3:41 pm
a week of these allegations that surely the repercussions to the would be to europe for the wild ride and that's why i think that international lenders will have to save these little countries and many russian oligarchs alongside otherwise cyprus will become the first domino to topple right. over details interesting stuff a day thank you very much i came moving on elsewhere russians have become a cause of competition between european countries local media says france and there's literally fighting to attract russian investment account is mostly interested in setting elite when a state that lacks demond in the current economic downturn. russian spent twelve billion euros on property in europe thus twice more than in two thousand and seven all of a russian potential investments in europe are not limited to rid of state for example

enjoy your favorites. t.v. is not required to watch on t.v. all you need is your mobile device to watch r.t. any time. with you twenty four hours a day in his first foreign policy move after being handed another four year term in the white house barack obama has slapped iran with new financial sanctions let's get more details on this now from marty's going to check. what could be behind such a move. well president obama's first move scepter he won re-election of pretty much indicated that in the next four years it will aggressively pursue the idea of the u.s. being the world police they've ministration has imposed
3:50 pm
a financial sanctions against the iranian officials so the u.s. blames for jamming satellite broadcasts and blocking internet access in iran and that comes on top of a whole lot of other sanctions that have been put in place by the u.s. alleged proved to be crippling for the ailing economy and the population there is suffering a great deal because because of that during the campaign president obama indicated that he didn't want to go to war with iran but that he would continue the sanctions policy and that's what he is doing we have heard reports that the obama administration might engage in direct talks with iran at some point but there has been no confirmation of that nevertheless the administration's strategy appears to be to make iran so desperate that they would agree to anything as israel's right to attack iran and the u.s. kind of appears to be stopped stopping them some argue that the u.s. and israel might be playing good cop bad cop exam at a game there but sanctioning iran might not have been president obama's very first move after winning this election government official said on wednesday a u.s.
3:51 pm
drone strike targeted a group of al qaeda militants in yemen and the president had to authorize that and possibly within hours after israel action the use of drones. has been has been highly controversial and it's quite clear not everybody by those drones are terrorists and the administration so far has been far from transparent on how they pick a target to basically. authorize executions overseas the un has raised concerns about the legality of such executions and there has been a lot of criticism especially our numerous reports of civilian deaths in the retimed this administration to rely on drones more and more they. made it clear that they think drones drones are great at other drone related story this week the pentagon said the iranian military had. fired upon but it did not hit
3:52 pm
a u.s. drone flying close to where he ran the pentagon said he was there on his of baylor's mission so looking at those moves we can say that with some of his very first moves after reelection president obama shows that he takes the idea of america being the world police that you know this global life force not force very seriously but. who is going to hold that world police itself accountable that has been the question for many years now thanks very much indeed for that kind of reporting there from washington d.c. . london remains worlds apart from the. debate at seventy eight budget off to crunch downing street talks with his german counterpart the british prime minister reaffirmed he would not accept any proposed hike in spending his sort of first with a deeper look at britain's widening riff with europe and the support for
3:53 pm
a split at home. prime minister david cameron and german chancellor angela merkel are probably feeling pretty food for the downing street dinner conversation on the menu is mushroom in spanish venison finished off with a traditional german pudding to finish the smiles and the friendly handshake you can imagine that probably have been quite awkward in a conversation in the surface of it the german chancellor is here to discuss with the prime minister the upcoming meetings that will be taking place in brussels but of course there are much bigger issues state most importantly the discussion about britain's position within the european union itself now the end of the meeting based sites is said that they were on the same end of the spectrum but is that really the food story because of course in recent weeks here in britain we've seen the talk of a possible referendum in or around referendum whether britain should remain within the european union really kicking up again you wouldn't have been the one to want
3:54 pm
to break that needs to anglo american she doesn't look like a woman who suffers food gladly unfortunately the prime minister has it like the strongest leader in recent weeks we feel that humiliating defeat in the house of commons with tory backbenches calling for real term cuts to the budget now we know when these meetings take place britain is going to be asked to contribute even more to the there's going to be some tough negotiating taking place what you have here at the moment very much is a big perception problem when it comes to the european union at a time of austerity in the midst of a double dip recession many british people feel that the european union to be asking for even more money is simply on reasonable and you seen a very very strong reaction to that here in the coming weeks ahead of that budget meeting of the topic of britain's role within the european union itself is very much going to be on the top of the menu. quality dot com right now taking
