the. our main story this hour a russian passenger jet overshoots the runway at a moscow airport breaks into pieces and careens into a busy highway we hear from the passers by who became the first rescuers on the scene and ask experts what could have gone so wrong. was a dialogue or hell the un arab league's peace envoy during a meeting with the russian foreign minister warns that the syrian rebels refusal to compromise could lead to further outbreaks of violence in the country.
and broadcasting live from our studios in a moscow this is r.t. certainly glad to have you with us four people have been killed after a passenger plane crashed onto one of moscow's main highways the jet broke into three parts and the right wing caught fire after overshooting the runway had new airport on board were only eight crew members for survived but are in serious condition with and injuries are teasin life and ocean as the latest. four people have died three man the captain the flight engineer and the second pilot and one woman twenty eight year old hostages four are others have been all clearly severely injured all of them have been young people as far as we know the oldest one has been just thirty two years old and all of them have been flight attendants and now their true being treated at different hospitals here in moscow and we're hearing from the doctors who have been taken care of them for these latest hours
and all of them are in a very serious condition and the condition of one of them is set to be very critical but the air to pollute to all four airliner flying from the czech republic to moscow care reared off the runway at new cover airport while lending and then crashed into one of the city's busiest highways caves highway and then broke into three parts and almost immediately caught on fire at the route three main causes that are considered. to be the reason of this tragedy and they are weather conditions. of pilot error and technical failure but i have to say that both the captain and the second pilot have been very experienced passionless with the fifteen thousand for the captain and ten thousands of flight hours for the second pilot sully every asian expert a saying that one of the reasons why it all went wrong could be the fact that the
airplane that is designed to carry at least two hundred people has been almost empty and it's very hard they say it's even harder to land. an empty plane than to land a full plane. it's not difficult to imagine the shock of those who were driving along the major highway close to a moscow road when a passenger jet with a capacity of two hundred to plowed into the side of the road the very first images of the crash appeared on social networks within minutes like this video taken by an eyewitness many of those driving by starts to give aid to the injured from the crash waiting with them for the emergency services to arrive i would guess who was one of those helping at the scene. i saw one woman we kind of denied it was the flight attendant christina she said that the plane overshot the runway but they weren't carrying any passengers and then there is another survivor might attend and
then the rescue unit came very bright but the ambulance couldn't get through because of the traffic so we gave the injured flight attendant first aid so best knowledge called her mother to tell her she was ok get strapped home and language and close group and they even found a contractor to prosecute. the plane crash right next to a busy ten lane highway there were no deaths of motorists driving by mark weiss a retired american airlines captain and member of the civil aviation team at the spectrum group says the experienced crew might have prevented a major tragedy. in a very prejudiced way because i'm a pilot and have more than twenty years for airline flying i want to say that it was probably some situational awareness that the pilots had that they saw what was happening to the aircraft and did their best either through most of the rudder
pedals at this time using the engines to help also turn the airplane more thrust on one side less on the other will also help turn the airplane so you want to go to remember these things happen in such a short period of time that taking a look at what's happening and how to try and control of the situation takes a lot of skill it's not something you practice in a simulator going off the end of a runway so the experience and what combine to prevent a more catastrophic situation from occurring well until now the two beloved two a four has had a little history of accidents are to select the reports on this particular model of airliner and the company that owns it. this is the first incident involving the tupolev tool for a blind where people died so the first fatal incident involving the spline only once only on one occasion the triple of two or four have been actual incident two
years ago and had a crash landing nobody was killed only a few were minor injuries were reported back then so this is the first time something like this happened it is generally considered considered to be a very reliable plane that carries more than two hundred passengers very widely used for charity flights of russian tourists all major holiday destinations the company itself is a charter company called the red wings it's owned by alexander the liberty of russian billionaire who is a very prominent figure accused of trying to run for mayor as office several years ago he also owns several british newspapers. including the evening standard so generally it's been a very good company i've used them couple of times and you know i've never thought they would actually have an incident something like that and their safety record speaks for itself of course very small blessing was that there were no passengers on board the plane which can carry more than two hundred that's amid a busy holiday season and safety expert david near mount explains why the jet was
almost empty. the clue is with the fact that this is a charter airline it does a lot of charter work and therefore it had a task a chartered toss to carry people out to the czech republic that it didn't have a cost to bring bring them back until probably a later date meanwhile i suspect the airline needed its aircraft back at base to do other work so i think you'll find out find that this was what in the trade is called up positioning flight it was positioning the empty aircraft back to its base on the runways long enough the weather wasn't particularly a problem there was some very light snow at the time but you know for anybody who operates in the moscow airport at this time of the year that shouldn't be a problem. of course it does reduce the adhesive on the runway the braking efficiency of the airplane but the pilots of course have to and you know it's their job to make allowances and if braking action is not very good it when an aircraft
goes over the end of the runway like this it's almost always because the aircraft for some reason landed too fast which would be a case of misjudgment unless there was a technical reason and we hadn't heard any inventions yet or that the true again a misjudgment issue landed too far down the runway and therefore couldn't stop by the end of it the international peace envoy for syria says that there are only two directions for the conflict a political process or hell and russia's foreign minister at a meeting with a locked up brahimi in moscow said the syrian opposition's refusal to talk with the government only paves the way for further bloodshed or does he want peace can off has been following the talks. 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 assad himself says he's not going anywhere he's protecting his country and moscow says nobody's 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 hand on a political process and then we have all of us to work seriously for the political process mr brahimi added that this should be a syrian allowed political process which should be based on the 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 on the willing 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 for lucian who demanded moscow to apologize for what he said was support for president assad. and i understand that mr had tb is probably not very experienced
in politics if he's looking to be a serious politician it is in his interest to hear our position from us and not from the media that sometimes discords information so i'll repeat we're ready to talk to all opposition forces but we start from the premise 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 with though preconditions actual notice meanwhile the violence is continuing to escalate in syria there have been more terrorist attacks the rebels have been also attacking states military airstrips of while government troops have been responding with more shelling. syrian political activist. says in order for rebels to prove they represent their country the national coalition must agree to hold talks
when the opposition opposition the coalition now the national coalition rejects the russian offer and the progress made by the right here me this again raises a skepticism around their real intention to proceed with a peaceful solution to the crisis in syria the syrian coalition now has the decision for me probably an executive. decision to make whether they want to proceed and join the talks abide by the geneva communique or still get stuck really down with the islamist governments that are supporting them and for them really for them to prove their credibility in syria and for them to prove that they represent a fragment of the syrian opposition or from the syrian population they have to get to get on board now if the turn comes to the united states to apply pressure on on
the powers that many plates in the in the gulf and in the region especially its arche and the gulf countries really now reduce the arms and. the infiltration of the armed rebels into syria. well more nose news is still ahead for you this hour including the following. a showcase of iran's naval and military might on a vital oil round causes of nervousness for the international community but tehran insists it's only proving it can defend itself from a foreign attack. plus from food chains it returned to the kremlin to bursts of public dissent a look at how the changes on russia's a political scene in two thousand and twelve will be remembered by those who covered them here on our team that in other stories in just a few minutes. if
you're from my generation or younger and you were born into the one percent that i have a lot of college debt i sure do you know the deal used to be that you paid a significant amount for education but in turn that gave you a much higher salary later but now the system works in reverse many young americans study very hard to not make any money at all around nine percent of americans with student loans have defaulted and at least nine but maybe up to eighteen percent are ninety days late with their payments given the situation the people at u.c. berkeley were nice enough to give away a million dollars in scholarships for everyone everyone that's an illegal immigrant yeah that's right if you're born in america then pay to jump the border and enjoy the red carpet education treatment the people who will be getting the scholarships are mostly the children of illegal immigrants who spent many of their formative
years in america and yeah i could see the logic that could be hard for them to get an education when they're when they aren't citizens but they came into the country illegally it isn't taxpayers jobs to help them but wait berkeley a surprise of an institution so i guess they can give out the money to whoever they want whenever they want however they want but berkeley management if you're watching this. i would really appreciate if you chose some financial mercy to american citizens it isn't like they don't need the help but that's just my opinion . you know sometimes you see a story and it seems so for lengthly you think you understand it and then you glimpse something else you hear or see some other part of it and realized everything you thought you knew you don't know i'm tom harpur welcome to the big picture.
was told news and commentary direct from moscow this is r.t. going to be back with us iran has deployed its a navy in the strait of hormuz a key shipping route for one fifth of the world's oil it's showcasing tehran's military capabilities with maneuvers devised to test combat ships submarines reconnaissance and a new mid range missile the drills a common growing pressure and sanctions against iran's nuclear program global diplomacy specialist all req says the purpose of the exercises is not to show hostility but a readiness to defend the country's borders for the past thirty two years or war in the west pacific the united states is waged a covert war against iran so you want has been preparing itself and demonstrating
its arrogant as to defend itself i don't believe that iran would ever take action if we see more third naval military exercises right now it's because the media is focusing on iran whereas inside. earlier this month there was operation lucky mariner with twenty seven countries participating. although a lot of them were observer state and they were all the way in the persian gulf and it was territory and the media was silent on this but when you run demonstrates his readiness to defend its sovereignty and its national interest then there's the media focus on you ron. well it seems french millionaires can now start unpacking in their luxury luggage. a seventy five percent tax for the rich are planned for two thousand and thirteen have been called by the constitutional council over concerns that. the country if you can read the full story.
it has been a turbulent year for russian politics with vladimir putin's come back to the kremlin met with opposition rallies plus pussy riot infamous cathedral performance protests and the court case that followed split russian society here is some of the staff who covered it all in two thousand and twelve recall what happened. presidential election two thousand and twelve we had three cameras up on this roof correspondents throughout moscow and i mean you come of course live throughout the
night it was a great night wasn't the real color was right behind us was in it but but so one point when putin came out to show me like crowds were a postie do move it wasn't thousands of people i was so celebrating his victory one of the main points the unprecedented protests that took place up to that election work and produce rallies that never really feels like we are actually taking part in the event it was during one of the massive protests rallies in moscow square that it really fifty for the first time when i saw the crowd rocking it seems to park right next to ours another station and i realized how soon was people really turned uncontrollable in the matter with seconds and they'll come in just as easily you know chaos really quickly of people trying to get the political point across in the past twelve months. the best way to do that would be a bag on your head and to some right be dancing in a cathedral one thing that was important to get across covering it is that people's
political flavors in this country the fact was that what they did was deeply offensive to a huge number of people not something that they consider when they were looking at the pussy riot case. when they made a press release about sour interview with president putin the first that he's ever given after he's a 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 pussy rights case nothing in fact the more challenging it is gauging the conversation would be of course not. the big list in my head i want to hear about his thoughts on the ongoing syrian conflict also whether the publisher of the pussy riot punk but it was indeed with hindsight maybe too heavy that some interesting comments to make about that odd what he thought about the russian opposition movement one of the big stories of the year the streets were available for protests . and i think it's good that people are conscious about politics well politics is
not a big deal among most people here in this country would want to be giving the chains can only be good for society and i think the reality would relatively low. more world news in brief for you now the clock is ticking for the united states where negotiations on avoiding the so-called fiscal cliff again produced no result if the republicans and democrats fail to reach a deal on how to reduce the national deficit tax hikes and spending cuts are worth billions of dollars automatically take effect on january first another round of talks are scheduled for saturday iraq obama is already considering an emergency bill for low earners and be unemployed if agreement is not reached before the deadline. at least four people have been killed and forty others injured after a passenger bus exploded at the terminal station in the southern pakistani city of karachi while an investigation is under way police believe that a terror attack or

trimmings and this is true even for specialists a voice can produce several sounds at once but we didn't use the art of throat singing comes naturally picked up like a language. a language of communicating with nature it said that's where throat singing originates from to benin's believe not only animals but also surrounding objects like reverse forests and even stones of souls imitating the sounds they believe assumes to capture the power of nature. was. there are special instruments that accompany the singing if gainey says there is
even a legend about his instrument a gil it says it wants to leave to poor shefford who had the best horse that won every competition but jealous people killed it on the course was revived as an instrument. or was it himself but a full is because of the spirit of the horse going to his dream and said make an instrument from the tree the sounding board from the leather of my face the strings . and to remember me make an engraving of my head part of the instrument he did so i could be used for me to give you which means come back and this. melody on these human is called. to fly is one of the most famous groups in the republic their next goal is to tour pruitt they say for you are p. and since difficult to pick up and sing so i asked them to teach me and see if i
