3:01 am
live from moscow this is our team with me to on monday let's get to our top story this hour. russia says it will provide to the u.n. security council with evidence allegedly implicating syrian rebel forces in last month's deadly chemical attack outside damascus the syrian government had already given the same data to u.n. inspectors working in the country but the findings were apparently not taken into account when the report was prepared artie's maria for national caught up with russia's deputy foreign minister during his visit to damascus to discuss these allegations. russia's deputy foreign minister has spent two days here in damascus to discuss the country's chemical disarmament plan according to which syria has to destroy or remove its chemical weapons by two thousand and fourteen but first to provide a full list of its chemical weapons and stockpiles by the end of this week that's
3:02 am
according to the deal that moscow and washington agreed or on over the weekend in geneva the deal that became sort of a political and diplomatic turn or two to end miniature response to the use of the chemical weapons here in syria all these just days after the u.n. investigators released their report over the use of chemical weapons here in syria they have been working here for several some time and they released a report but an exclusive interview to r t russia's deputy foreign minister said a get up call criticised this report's call and that's it was one sided politicized and biased because according to russia's deputy foreign minister the report didn't appear to take into consideration all the evidence the syrian authorities have conducted their own. sampling and investigation analysis in terms of possible evidence of rebels being responsible
3:03 am
for educators odes both on august twenty first but beyond that also august twenty second third and fourth this material was discreetly handed over to orcus drum the head of u.n. mission here mission of experts which came and investigated the incident so strong was asked to look into it and eventually factor this new evidence into the final report never happened in fact and this is one of the reasons why we criticize incomplete contents of this report russia will also carry out its own examination of the evidence provided by the syrian government and will also transfer this information to the un security council mosco is calling for further investigation by un and it's calling for the un team to come back here to
3:04 am
syria to continue its probe in order to determine who was responsible for the hostages here in the country political analyst. lucia says the western powers are cherry picking their data on syrian chemical weapons and that persuading them to consider any evidence of a rebel culpability is a difficult task. naturally the report was not meant to point fingers at anyone but the fact that it ignored certain elements and the investigation that are crucial to finding out who is using chemical weapons in syria is itself highly problematic and behind the medical the united states has been acting partly selectively and using double standards and dealing with different cases and different countries for example. for attacking al qaida and mali
3:05 am
but at the supporting al qaida in syria so the weight of russia the international weight of russia in the security council will lend more credibility to this that would otherwise be ignored by the united states britain and france so the point is not only to have evidence the point is to be able to have that evidence. and study it and taken into consideration. meanwhile syria's president has said he's committed to chemical disarmament but that the process will take at least a year and cost around a billion dollars but made his latest comments in an interview with fox news the highlights all on of available on our website at r.t. . cities across the greece have seen violent clashes following the death of an anti fascist activist she was stabbed to death by

a member of the far right golden dawn party police used tear gas to disperse the angry crowds as writers hurled rocks and lit street fires our correspondent lisa catherine off was in the midst of the frenzy. basically the large group of protesters have clashed with the police the police are holding their ground right now as you can see there's fires behind me tear gas is in the air it's a little bit difficult to breathe here as you can see in front of me the police are trying to hold their territory on the other side there's basically a group of anarchists black bloc kids whatever you want to call them many of the protesters here have been picking up stones along the side of the road in fact if you can pan down you can see someone trying to pull out a fire stones on the ground from the clashes now. basically. we're basically where we're standing is in between protesters on one side and fires and protesters on the other side the police have secured this radius but in some
3:07 am
ways were blocked in. it was very hard to breathe at one point they've been throwing around tear gas and of course the smoke is and the wind is making it get in everyone's faces that some part helped clear the crowd i think the baton and sort of the heavy use of tear gas definitely help clear the situation but quite tense and we can't quite figure out where to go and how to leave to be honest we have some folks back that don't know if you can see with the camera fire still lit with demonstrators hurling rocks in the distance but the police have advanced and it does seem like they're securing the area now this smoke right here if we can pan to it that's tear gas so we're actually going to move away we don't really have. a safe safe area to go to are effectively stuck between the. protesters behind us and the ones you're seeing in front of us who are who are throwing anything they can get their hands on really people had come out here to this neighborhood to commemorate the death of a young man a young hip hop artist
3:08 am
a leftist leaning i suppose who was murdered on tuesday evening by someone who is a self-confessed golden dawn member that's one of the sort of neo fascist. that's been growing a lot more powerful here in greece which provided the fuel for the fire no pun intended for for for these tens clashes that really developed i mean basically while this is at heart an economic situation this is a country that's been struggling with programs the country that has seen two thirds of its youth unable to find work sixty four percent youth unemployment and these economic tensions have really translated into social issues for example dividing communities some people have have been driven perhaps by desperation to join certain parties certain ideological divisions have been hardened and this is the result the result is a tinderbox that unfortunately hung this particular evening erupted and came to
3:09 am
a rather terrible clash meanwhile public services in greece remain paralyzed by a two day strike which started on wednesday saying sector workers really didn't athens. was a mess layoffs the spending cuts securing the next tranche of an international. job say a professor of constitutional law believes there's a direct link between the certainty and the rise of extremist movements. the majority of the good people. commercials that unfortunately. get into despair you speak the most so there is of the new fascists in the first this is a small minority now we. must through some of the above except the really come to be useful and of course not at all viable to most of them but all of that has been eclipsed by the murder also a young person babysit a new fascist group the only cool progress is
3:10 am
a purse. or does it come back to the mother or european socialist thing. when it comes to financial troubles and austerity measures kind of a loss for words you can catch the latest episode of the kinds of reports later this hour but here's a quick preview for this is ticker is economic what we can't build waxwings big enough to fly closest to the sun fast enough because we can't crash soon enough because then we can't get our balance from the taxpayers who will then be asked to suffer austerity again remember that there's two things going on there's a wealth transfer of the public funds to a few private speculators and then there's the essentially extermination of the poor in this country and other countries will be left to rot on the sidewalk and bleed to death but that's the plan.

3:14 am
it was night time for the morning even the best even the bash shoulders. are going to make mistakes does this whole idea of brotherhood author and camaraderie in this set that was in this context that has absolutely no place. thanks for being with us or watching our t.v. the sun all delayed libyan dictator colonel gadhafi who will stand trial today on charges of killings allegedly committed during the country's twenty eleven civil war the hearings are taking place in tripoli as libya has to find numerous requests from the international criminal court to hand saif al islam is over to the hague the authorities and says they will ensure a fair trial but as are his policy reports many doubt that promise. twenty eight members of the formal libyan regime are facing trial among them
3:15 am
abdullah senussi who was the former intelligence chief of the libyan leader moammar gadhafi as well as safe as number who was the heir apparent and also the only gadhafi son to be held in custody now the charges they are facing include murder inciting rape and kidnapping used as well as forming armed groups in violation of the norm the libyan authorities are insisting that the men will get a fair trial but human rights groups as well as many in the international community believe that this is not going to happen that the authorities are actually simply incapable of being able to do this since the capture of the men in the hague has repeatedly castigated the middle forty's for not handing them over to face who crimes as well as crimes against humanity if the trial and when this trial goes ahead in libya it is in direct defiance of international criminal court rulings and the court can complain to the united nations security council what is interesting
3:16 am
is that it was the libyan rebels themselves before they came to government at work at the forefront of forming you know the international criminal court to action and this is what many analysts are saying when the rebels were fighting the gadhafi regime they were very quick to curry favor with the international community to call for the gadhafi family to be put on trial at the hague but no sooner do they themselves come into power then they're turning their backs on the very same community that they were copulating was very few people believe that say we'll get a fair trial this case is a we taken a very long time and also the fact that they're not prepared to hand him over to the hague does suggest that old scores in with the gadhafi family are being settled this is being called the trial of the same shereen but even those who are trying to organize it on capable of doing so poorly r t tel aviv. let's take a look at the international criminal court the pursuit of saif al islam for since
3:17 am
the start of the libyan revolution in february of twenty eleven now six months into the unrest the i.c.c. issued an arrest warrant for both colonel gadhafi and his son on charges of crimes against humanity over the deaths of political opponents the war in libya ended with the brutal death of moammar gadhafi at the hands of the rebels in a total of twenty eleven but no investigation or trial into the killing has followed the i.c.c. then started informal talks with saif al islam urging him to surrender himself to the hague over fears he would share the fate of his father however saif was captured by libyan authorities while trying to leave the country in november shortly afterwards the government announced that he would go on trial for war crimes in tripoli rejecting the i.c.c. has called for his handover saying it had no jurisdiction in june international criminal court of were detained by libyan armed groups for several weeks after
3:18 am
visiting saif islam as they were accused of conspiring against the state since then so you've has an axis hasn't had access to a lawyer and libya's thought to the i.c.c. is approval for his domestic trial of gadhafi son in may this year but that request was rejected earlier my colleague andrew fowler spoke to a libyan lawmaker who said the country has every right to try gadhafi son without foreign interference. so if we get there because he's a libyan all the crimes on the charges against him that they've been proud of committed in libya and i every libyan believes that he should be tried in libya none of the none of the crimes that he's been charged with are committed outside so there's no reason whatsoever in. trying him outside libya and the demand of all the libyans why do you think this being such a battle then as to where to try him why the brother to brother it is not we as

launch a final push for votes they are facing an uphill struggle to win over young people many of whom feel that the main parties are failing to represent their interests archies peter all of our reports on what's behind the discontent. political promises ahead of the general election in germany just plain patronize in say the country's young people according to a poll of the next generation of voters less than a quarter of those asked believe the social democrats can challenge and merkel and only three percent would vote for mrs merkel's current coalition partners the free democrats. about the political left and perhaps best for ross and i don't listen to us and we don't trust them and there isn't one person to blame just like that represents. those with their fingers on germany's political polls say those who use needs a very clear they want education they want jobs as well as other cultural and leisure

germany. up next as promised the kaiser report max and stacy will be investigating a property bubble that seems to be building up in they can stay changed. i got some angry but polite messages after i came out in favor of the foreign adoption ban of children by people in the usa this is not a dig on america i think russia or any country that respects itself should export any children to anywhere at all people tell me that i'm paranoid that the decision to stop the foreign adoptions punishes the children while a massive reuters investigation called the child exchange has exposed some dark secrets about adoption of foreign children they expose it often by using the term

re homing which is normally about finding new homes for animals people are basically advertising adopted children they don't want like baseball cards on e bay reuters found out that on just one yahoo group child a week was offered up to the public my wonder what kind of people want to discreetly get children off the internet the thing is that in the us adopting a child from overseas is hard but transferring them to someone else later on is a breeze all you need is a notarized power of attorney document to clearing the child is another adult's care so for those of you who think that i am a cruel nationals because i support russians the option ban than take a look at the child exchange and you might just start to see my point but that's just my opinion.
