best serve the public dissent look at how the changes on russia's political scene in twenty twelve will be remembered by those who covered them here in r.t. . well live from moscow this is our take and we start with some breaking news this hour a passenger plane has made an emergency landing on one of moscow's main highways now witnesses say the plane was partially destroyed after landing and is now on fire well unconfirmed reports say it's a red wings' plane coming from the czech republic and was attempting to land the new cover airport and we understand at least. one person has died and of course
we'll bring you more on this as we get it as we say unconfirmed reports so far of this breaking news that a plane has landed on a highway with at least one fatality we'll get more on this as we get it here on r.t. . the international war for syria says there are only two directions for the conflict a political process or help and russia's foreign minister at a meeting with lakhdar brahimi in moscow said the syrian opposition's refusal to talk with the government only paves the way for further bloodshed. has been following the talks now the biggest stumbling block in the syrian conflict right now is that the opposition is rejecting any compromise saying strictly that president assad has to go while outside himself says he's not going anywhere he's protecting his country and moscow says nobody is able to persuade him to change his mind and neither side is willing to put its weapons down if. you know the only
alternative is. really. on the political process then we have all of us to work seriously for a political process mr brahimi added that this should be a syrian led political process which should be based on agreements reached by world powers in geneva and they include forming a transitional government which could include all sides of the conflict but the opposition is not only unwilling to negotiate with the syrian authorities it's now rejecting direct talks with moscow which has been trying to be a mediator and we've heard from the leader of the recently established opposition coalition who demanded moscow to apologize for what he said was support for president assad. i understand that mr probably not very experienced in politics if he's looking to be a serious politician it is in his interests to hear our position from us and not
from the media that sometimes distorts information so i'll repeat we're ready to talk to all opposition forces but we start from the premises that they should not only think about their own ambitions but also the fate of the syrian people and if they think that russia could play a role in the country's tragedy they should meet our representatives without preconditions on notice meanwhile the violence is continuing to ask syria there have been more terrorist attacks the rebels have been also attacking states military air strips of while government troops have been responding with more shelling. the navy has deployed in the strait of hormuz a key shipping route for one fifth of the world's oil but it's showcasing tehran's military capabilities to maneuver device to test combat ships submarines reconnaissance and a new mid range missile drills come amid growing pressure and sanctions against
iran's nuclear program global diplomacy specialist. rich says the purpose of the exercise is not to show us. ity but a readiness to defend the country's borders. for the past thirty years war the west the united states is a covert war against iran so you want has been preparing itself and demonstrating. to defend itself i don't believe that iran would ever take action if we see more naval military exercises right now it's because the media is focusing on iran whereas in my. earlier this month there was operation lucky mariner with twenty seven countries participating. although a lot of them were observers and they were all the way the persian it was territory and the media was silent but when you run demonstrates it's very nice to defend its
sovereignty and its national interest then there is the media focus on iraq. where we start again now some more breaking news this hour a passenger plane has made an emergency landing one of moscow's main highways witnesses say the plane was partially destroyed after landing it is now on fire and we understand someone has tweeted this first photograph and i'll confirm reports say it's a red wings plane coming from the czech republic and was attempting to land at the new convert airport and we understand there are at least eight passengers and the crew were on board that well more on this as and when we get it of course here are taking. now it's been a turbulent year for russian politics with vladimir putin's come back to the kremlin met with opposition rallies last pussy riot sinfulness cathedral performance protest and the court case that followed split russian society well
here's how some of the r.t. staff who covered it all in twenty twelve remember what happened. presidential election twenty three cameras up on this roof correspondents throughout moscow and i mean you come across lines throughout the night there's a great noise. the real color is right behind us was me but but so one point when putin came out to show me like crowds a cost to move it thousands and thousands of people or so celebrating his victory one of the main points the unprecedented protests that took place up to that election and protest rallies that never really feels like we're actually taking part in the event it was during one of the massive protests rallies in moscow
square that it really hit people the first time when i saw the crowd watching a t.v. court right next to ours in another station and i realized how soon was people really turned uncontrollable in the matter with seconds and help in just as easily chaos rebirth of people trying to get political points in the past twelve months. the best way to do that would be a bag on your head and to some right wing in a cathedral the one thing that was important to get across covering it is the people's political flavor in this country the fact was that what they did was deeply offensive to a huge number of people not something that. looking at the case. when they made the press release doubts our interview with president putin the first that he's ever given us he's stirred inauguration we see dozens and dozens of calls from international media representatives and they were all asking us just one question did he say anything about the case nothing in fact the more challenging it is the
one gauging the conversation would be of course not. i want to hear about his thoughts on the ongoing syrian conflict also whether the polish with the pussy riot was indeed with the two heavy interesting comments to make about that. russian opposition movement one of the big stories of the year the streets are available for protests. and i think it's good that people conscious about politics not politics is not a big deal among most people here in this country would. only be good for society and i think. it would relatively well. where we continue with our breaking news this hour a passenger plane has made an emergency landing on one of moscow's main highways witnesses say the plane was partially destroyed after landing and is now on fire this one of the first pictures which member the party has tweeted through to us
unconfirmed reports say it's a red wings plane which was coming from the czech republic and was attempting to land. airport are some reports unconfirmed as we say suggest eight passengers and four crew members were on board but our correspondents are on their way to the scene to bring you live reports more on this when we get it will have more from our correspondent on this live as soon as we get it. the legacy no one should be proud keeps of scrap metal littering pristine arctic landscape building stilton over their foundation pipes spewing black smoke over the snow covered peaks the traces of the soviet industrial activity on the burgen archipelago don't make a pretty picture the guiding principle here is the worst the better that can do
nine hundred eighty bearings work was a burgeoning mining community. and was determined to maintain it costs thirty degree located halfway between north america and western europe bergen archipelago is part of norway but a special status that allows other countries to set up industrial bases here in the middle of the cold war it served as the us is ours westernmost outpost now it's one of the last preserved relics. picture of what would have happened to the soviet union if it was cut off from any financial support for two decades he's a curious sight for western tourists and i think it could be even more appealing for russian travellers the local administration is increasingly under pressure to bring the infrastructure up to more than standards these modernization efforts and not very popular with tourist operators if you come into a very authentic place. it should stay the way it is that would be my wish i mean
that's the part of the you know authentic tradition here. i should not i would not like to have it in a shiny condition to be honest this time to change even for the better is not always good for business something that even a local band has become attuned to when they try to add morning russian songs to the repertoire of the audience called all they wanted to hear it was a song comfortably familiar. we're back to our breaking news story now a passenger plane has crashed landed and one of moscow's main highways unconfirmed
reports say eight passengers and four crew members were on board. here for us now what more do we know we know very little so far very many unconfirmed reports but we have it confirmed by the transport department of the interior ministry that this was the redwings plane coming from the czech republic it landed in the airport and then for some reason the plane just went off the runway and crashed into the highway which is just next to the airport unconfirmed reports from eyewitnesses say that the plane broke into several parts of the fire started also unconfirmed reports say that there were eight passengers on board including four crew members and one person source unconfirmed is reported dead we're only have one photograph from twitter of exactly what happened we can see the plane part of the plane lying just next to the highway which is in the south of moscow which is one of the biggest highways in the outskirts of moscow and certainly the news are coming in we're waiting for more confirmations and more news and where there were many more
casualties or many more injured but survive but definitely eyewitnesses have been saying of survivors there and indeed a very dramatic photo that we can we can see here i mean the ground to be several casualties on well the photo looks really dramatic and we just have to wait and see whether there will be any official reports from the interior ministry specialists at the site we are certainly waiting for that those reports. ok ok well as we say a passenger plane has crashed landed on one of moscow's main highways now these unconfirmed reports as we say that eight passengers four crew members were on board who hope to get more on this as soon as we can hear it r.t. . but unease now moscow's a ban on the adoption of russian children by u.s. citizens to come into effect on u.s. day the bill of containing the measure was signed into law by president putin on friday the legislation also includes travel and financial sanctions for a second americans as well as further restrictions for noncommercial organizations
working inside russia and the law is in the tally ation for washington's a stall of russian officials which it links to the death of the listening that made ski in two thousand and nine when russia studies on history professor steven cohen from new york and princeton university's says he's never held any visions about the two countries relations. there's an old russian saying we're friends are also deeds a lot of people in moscow and in washington when they pass the magnitsky act and now the ban on adoption in moscow may have thought they were just talking showing off playing grandstanding politically as we say in america but these words have consequences they have bet a few all this new cold war atmosphere which is enveloping the relationship between our two countries it's going to affect american relations with russia regarding afghanistan regarding missile defense regarding syria regarding iran these are very
serious matters obama has continued the policy toward moscow begun by president clinton a democrat and continued by president bush a republican that policy is advancing nato toward russia's borders building missile defense on russia's borders interfering in russia's interim the politics most recently the street demonstrations this is the same policy that began twenty years ago with the soviet union the fundamental american policy toward russia has not changed so it's ridiculous to call long soft on moscow i mean just because two leaders get together. the. reality. is that the partnership between washington to make it. has. and we may be farther from. today as a result of this all. right
