as part of the so-called magnitsky list dismissed moscow's objection that it will do you ever had a blow to. be added socialist i can charge it squares off against a champion of the free market and a better but short presidential campaign in venezuela left with both vying for leadership over the world's most oil rich nation. and egypt's ousted president hosni mubarak goes on trial again over the killing of protesters during the revolution of twenty eleven i mean a growing chaos and disappointment and his successes policies. international news and comment live from moscow this is all see with me. and welcome to the program the u.s.
has released a list of eighteen russians banned from entering the states due to alleged human rights violations the move sparks and angry response from moscow which said it would respond with similar measures while warning of the damage to relations between the two countries is this a trick and it has the details from washington. the obama administration has released a list of russians to be blacklisted under the so-called mug needs to act despite moscow's calls not to put such a list together in the first place let alone publish it the list includes eighteen names including sixteen judges and investigators who in the united states accuse of human rights abuses going to directly to the mother needs case these individuals will be forbidden from getting a u.s. visa as well as have their assets frozen so good luck needs he was a russian lawyer who was arrested for tax evasion in two thousand and eight he died a year later while still in pretrial detention at the age of thirty seven since then the u.s. has eagerly been exploiting the circumstances of his death which president putin
said was a tragedy moscow warned washington that its handling of the case was a domestic issue for russia and russia alone and that the americans must not interfere responding to the so-called magnitsky list russia's prime minister admits in the fears of so the u.s. has the right to bar anyone from entering its territory by simply denying them a visa so the purpose of this additional ban is unclear except for its symbolism russia's concerns that the release of the document comes at a bad time apart from putting out a strain on u.s. russian relations it comes ahead of the visit of the u.s. national security advisor to moscow on monday and said you're going to r.t. . japan comes in to north korea's crosshairs threatens if the tough talk here is the troops down any missile the north test fires the while the u.s. rita reads it won't talk to the reclusive nation unless it agrees to drop its nuclear program. and also later in the program the secret
police for extra bailout cash hits a brick wall as the eurozone does it to make do with a green light a ten billion euro rescue calls for he could see it quickly spiral out of control and other news so in store for you this sounds. plots conspiracies and treachery are coming in second fast in venezuela topping a short but mr president campaign some nineteen million venezuelans will vote tomorrow for their next leader to head the world's most all rich nation. campaign and game venezuela chooses a new president chavez choice runs against a free market poster boy for possible venezuela choose after calming down taste death self-styled socialism or free market model venezuela votes fourteenth on r.t. . so in the latest six trying the government's accused the opposition
over bringing in camden parra militaries to so can you also election day a challenge that's been vehemently denied the opposition in turn claims to be the victim of a government smith campaign and immigration that's been ridiculed by the all sorts he's. now reports on the faces of the venezuelan elections and their chances. important elections for the venezuelan people certainly snap elections after the death of this or so bought a month ago it has been a short campaign for everyone who has been involved in their two top contenders in these elections on the one hand you have a nicolas maduro he's the acting interim president of the country he was the vice president during that chavez's time and on the other hand you have to get this hasn't happened run against us and options in october two thousand and twelve and he's a rivalry with talking about bringing change to the country now there's been a lot of name calling during this campaign period you have a mother were accusing us of being at the prince of the bourgeoisie not
representing the poor calling him some of the other hand you have this was accusing me of being a liar or using this as a body to run a political campaign now however they did touch both of them tough on the issue of tackling crime in the country this is a top concern of the citizens here they want to see the crime level addressed and brought down a small as a government bureaucracy and inefficiencies there are those who work staunchest supporters very loyal to everything that this is stood for the so-called socialist revolution big want to continue this and some of them out of this loyalty will vote for nicolas maduro on the other hand you have those people who have been blaming the government for a lot of the problems of the country not least a lot of these two which is why bureaucracy and what they say is a bit of stagnation in terms of the way business is going in the country and they say they will vote for the best so many are watching these elections closely not least of which. if the united states has had strained relations with the country
during the time i will go charges the for everyone else who is observing and want to know what happens next to me question the one answer really is what step is venezuela going to take in the hands of somebody other than who got this. so nicolas maduro may be the heir to charges and represent a constitution continuation of his policies but he'll almost certainly have trouble selling his predecessor that's according to international consultant adrian salvucci who spoke to my colleague kevin. probably one of the main problems suddenly collapsed maduro has that he does not have the same charisma the same popularity sort of surfing on the hugo chavez wave so to speak and that's why he's using a lot of your memory of hugo chavez the image of hugo chavez ideas and this course that he gave to the people but nicolas maduro himself really has no special personal power base that he can fall back upon that's why it's really hugo chavez who is in the election through nicolas maduro so to speak drew while you're on the
list take a minute now to talk about the second candidate sure way. he wants to create a free market economy is that something venezuelans want as well well some do some don't some but israel is definitely are very tied in with the interests of the united states hugo chavez and hopefully my doodle have done a very good job for him and for the region in the long term something that i'm sure mr completeness would not because you would completely aligned venezuela into united states requirements and banking global financial interests stronger ties with the u.s. if he gets in does that mean the dictate the does that mean the u.s. will dictate more to venezuela in the future that. oh absolutely they tried to do it as a matter of fact they tried to do have exactly eleven years ago when i was in twelfth of april two thousand and two they staged a coup d'etat they orchestrate a coup d'etat where mr cupp clueless was one of the key people in the coup d'etat
he was only too young then but mr couple the list is definitely the face of washington inside because they were. speaking ahead of the election american film director and producer all of a stone said he believes it is that as well as a vast riches and potential that make it a prime target of washington for the rest. of. the. season on the issue the real. world of the. seems to be the. bridge. to the great. sober. sleeves. the really. the. do.
so the. worse the real the. news is to the. well the u.s. wishlist of politico challenge abroad goes far beyond that as well coming up washington's try to reach every point in the world as the country aids political forces in exchange for loyalty if it means a joint political gain. also coming up a new london council is offering more than a teaspoon of politics with its coffee hundreds looking to stir up radicals all that later in the program. u.s.
secretary of state john kerry is that talks with north korea are possible only the country agrees to end its nuclear weapons program during a visit to the south korean capital he reiterated america won't accept the north as a nuclear power and a pentagon intelligence report suggesting pyongyang my already be able to find a nuclear weapon was published mistakenly and quickly downplayed by the white house feel young meanwhile has warned talk here it could become a prime target if it should stand any test missiles the north launches that was a response to japan's warning at all intercept any miso heading in his direction and former pentagon official michael maloof believes a full scale war is a real possibility and that's correct. japan like a lot like the others like south korea in the united states should be keeping a very low profile keep their powder dry but not make any provocations and. and i think that. as long as there are provocations underway such as those continued
u.s. korean south korean military actions sizes this this is this crisis is going to continue if not explode due to some this calculation in japan has threatened to shoot down any any missiles that might. go over it from from north korea but i think primarily it's because the united states has a bases there and they see the united states as the primary threat. president fledging appearance here now says they russian budget for space exploration is just skyrocket promising more than fifteen billion dollars will be pumped into the national space program up until twenty twenty so go online for more washers and dishes reach for this dolls. on the market they have been doing all of carol to sneak a close a peek at pos no online communications go to find out how much money to play
into the lives of it citizen. i. egypt's former president hosni mubarak is going to court again over the killing of protesters during the uprising in february twentieth love and he's a writer been sentenced to life behind bars for failing to prevent the deaths however an appeals court later overturned that ruling and ordered a retrial their original trial which began in august twenty lebanon was seen as a symbol of change in egypt but many supporters of the revolution were frustrated by that sentence they deemed too lenient they were trial comes at a time when the current president mohamed morsi is facing mounting protests himself
and he's being accused of betraying the arab spring and only pursuing the interest of his muslim brotherhood and may be chaos sectarian clashes are on the rise with coptic christians facing increased violence they believe or say the point is the police have done nothing to protect them true reports now. days after a brutal assault on egypt's main coptic cathedral activists and opposition leaders meet to discuss a response many of them like tony sabri a christian protester who was trapped inside the church say they're still in shock though because. there's attacked us from everywhere even from the street next to the gas stations by the interest of the police told inside that's not what this is going to want to civilians bombarded us with molotov cocktails rocks rubber bullets and live ammunition and the police protected the whole market they were painting the. nation was shocked on sunday and bloody scenes of egypt's security post
is firing tear gas and birdshot bullets directly at mourners gathered on st mark's beach or here behind me one of the main churches to coptic christians president mohamed morsi has promised to investigate and his alleged comments saying an attack on this cathedral was an attack on himself has done little to satisfy the coptic christian community with divisions deepening between the two religions. many fear the worst is yet to come in the aftermath of the attack coptic pope to watch the second criticize the president for failing to protect the cathedral members of the clergy present at the scene also demanded answers. because theater has never been attacked before who were the people outside the cathedral and why did the police not even attempt to intervene and why didn't they arrest one single person. heaven mariah of egypt director of human rights watch agrees government neglect is contributing to rising sectarian turmoil part of the problem is the way the
authorities respond to incidents where there is violence between muslim and christian communities there's a long history of purity for sectarian violence and a fairly it's really acknowledge that there is a serious problem the reason sunday is such a worrying precedent is that we saw the police we saw images of the police finding with people who are throwing stones or sometimes shooting at a funeral grounds leading member of the ruling freedom and justice party dr amr darrag admits the police behaved unprofessionally but claims the state is not to blame the christian community has been suffering from the from the behavior of the previous regime you find all the time people trying to ignite the situation trying to cause chaos trying to spread violence as part of the air force to. bring down the revolution so it is very likely that these forces are behind this and we would like to know who is behind this and bring him to justice despite these
assurances with only two prosecutions for sectarian violence since the revolution many believe the new muslim brotherhood government is continuing mubarak's culture of impunity in the meantime thousands continue to demand justice for the cathedral victims and christians like attorneys say they will continue to protest in till the government acts this is true for r t. a ten billion bailout for cyprus is now all but guaranteed after a euro zone finance ministers settled on the fine print the same officials though cyprus which is asking for more that's that's all it would get is a merger that nicosia will need to come up with thirteen billion euros almost twice the amount of money needed just weeks ago in parallel the eurozone was the secret government to stop pressuring. country's central bank which by law now says only to senior european banks. also be forced to sell vast amounts of its gold reserves
which is something marx and stacy believe was almost always been true because and call so the four kinds report is coming up in ten minutes time. into its gold reserves well we have said that the e.c.b. the so-called troika there their goal all. around europe is to grab the gold remember greece had to give up their gold to the troika so i pressed of course will give up their gold and it's funny because obviously the cypriot government was the last to know that the i.m.f. has taken their gold then they said wait a minute no that never happened then they got the phone call saying wait but we did take your gold then they came out today oh i think they did take our gold meanwhile chinese gold buyers are frantically on the phone will take it will take it all as confucius said. stupid gold.
the u.s. has once again into the moon age is set to head to the sea when rebels as secretary of state john kerry met with the opposition so many they seem to come to washington sticking to the trend of supporting loyal movements or governments at any cost and there's also he's going at each account found out the u.s. has its tentacles of influence in every part of the world. opposition leaders in many countries have sought and received washington's backing but u.s. support often comes at a price counting on money and arms from washington and its allies serious opposition coalition has elected a us citizen. to be the leader of an interim government we and our selves have to take action we must action the syrian born i t executive from texas mystics he may have washington's blessing to form a new government in syria but even anti outside voices inside the country say instead of uniting syrians the american leader in syria will sow even more division . in order for mr hitchens to build
a team with which you could have mutual understanding he needs to find these people abroad that means that these people will have no idea what life is like here before the election i didn't even know his name well loose whole election of a government down the prime minister it was simply. what i thought there was the benefit of having a government that owes its power to washington and can be considerable and that is the case with the current libyan government oh the current regime mostly to the united states and the united states will be seeking and are cashing that check very effectively for their own interests in terms of the strategic geographically importance of libya united states and west europe how about in terms of unfettered access to the high recall resources of libya against the resource nationalism with all his government they have for years the u.s. has supported the opposition in another oil rich countries venezuela in the hope
that it would replace the legal charges u.s. educated in the making of previous would be washington's perfect choice in the budget the state department's budget for two thousand and thirteen there was a paragraph included that specifically said money is for these venezuelan political groups that are aligned with the opposition or that form the opposition. more than three million dollars right wing government under someone like enrico previous a menace well what helped the u.s. regain its influence and dominance in the region it's not uncommon for washington to host prominent opposition figures whether from cuba or china the declared seam is u.s. support for human rights. i'm learning the constitution of the us and the declaration of independence for me to have a better comparison with china so that will help me to improve chinese law in the future but some note throughout the history of washington's dealings with the opposition in different countries there was another common theme it's my experience
after studying. many thousands of u.s. diplomatic cables that. the united states makes a cheat gaining influence and contacts and informants. we've. moved them in order to correct them partly in order to. have. both. the elite also and the second in case there is a transition of power having said all that it's not all oppressed opposition figures that washington welcomes for example the us is not going out of its way to free opposition figures in brain who are sentenced to life in prison for taking part in protest against the government there operating hopes the u.s. fifth fleet in the persian gulf so washington has been quite selective as far as whose opposition it supports in washington i'm going to check out. and now to some international news in brief away with tons of remains has continued in other styles
