other halves are the states have sent integrations to the forum. is there for us. located in russia's north is the only city in the world situated exactly on the arctic circle that's why there's no wonder why it's been chosen to host the third international arctic forum the arctic still remains a region with the most unprecise borderlines but with vast energy resources and extreme weather conditions but as global temperatures warm up and ice caps melt the arctic is now opening up opportunities to more and more countries attracting even those not located in the region now due to its geographic location russia is among the countries with the biggest clings to the arctic like the loss of the ridge and the stockmen gas fields russia is forty five percent of the arctic territory so it is fair that it actually also shows that to the world it is really no tension between nations about the russians claim to the arctic ocean and seabed but there are no big dispute about where the border probably will go. of course so that also

well as sniffed an additional sixty billion dollars to develop offshore fields in the arctic and china has also struck up a business relationship with iceland and as a result these tactics managed to secure a place on the arctic council for china along with the founding members the likes of norway and canada which of course have a geographical right to the area and i cleanse president all of for graham certainly isn't russia to talk to corporations present preachin and he says the rush for polar resources has become a real challenge for his small country on his worlds apart host of boyko caught up with him and the full version of the interview will be available on thursday for you but here's a quick preview. the last. arctic maple court has become the new global theater or for economic and political interests and this was formally our longest in may when the arctic council transformed itself in such

russian investigators the greenpeace activists and there are believed to be around thirty of them have violated the article of the russian criminal code relating to piracy organized by a group of people and the maximum punishment for this for this while asian is up to fifteen years in prison and a half a million ruble fine of course that is yet to be determined but i remind our viewers that the incident in question happened last week when the arctic sunrise vessel registered to the greenpeace organization reached the but their oil rig in the russian or the sea and the activists tried to board this oil platform according to the russian investigators there were some electronic equipment found on board that vessel but the biggest irony here according to investigators is that the activists of the greenpeace organization the organization which has always been fighting to prevent any kind of ecological catastrophes have tried to threaten the
7:17 am
security of the oil rig and thus in danger of the ecological situation in the entire region of course the investigation is still ongoing but we already heard from the head of the russian investigative committee that if these activists will be found guilty that they will face criminal prosecution regardless of their nationality six of them are believed to be citizens of the united kingdom staunchly denying any kind of accusations saying that they were embarking on a peaceful protest against drilling in the northern sea not any kind of illegal activities something of course the russian investigators are not buying at the moment but we do know that the arctic sunrise vessel has been. to the bay of the seven more sexy in the north of russia the vessel is now in the bay and the crew is on board this vessel they are not allowed to leave the ship and they are waiting for the investigation to be completed. as absolution levels in the british capital

reach a high londoners are encouraged to meet their cars at home and shift for wales to get through all these point to point out takes up the story for us. all the great london small give nine hundred fifty to britain was back in the dozens of square miles one blanketed day off today reading this result was an unhappy drunk can't be healthy for anybody today it appears much cleaner but the reality is that london's air is so dirty it's been breaching the legal limits set out by the e.u. for years. thirty thousand deaths are attributed to pollution annually people look at the air today and it's clean but unfortunately it's still very dangerous. air pollution today is completely invisible but the reason for this is it's very small microscopic particles and that's also the reason that they're so damaging to your health because they can travel deep inside your security system and it's london's car travel that's largely responsible for it cars and lorries

7:20 am
in touch with defra the government department responsible for air quality and they told us equality has improved significantly in london and we expect it to improve further thanks to the actions the government is taking to reduce transport emissions but campaigners say that charging cars to drive into central london and introducing what the government has tagged as green a buses isn't enough i think they need to take a really hard look at what's necessary to reduce pollution in the u.k. that the choices are extremely difficult and electorally not very popular it basically means taking diesel vehicles off the road in the very foreseeable future you can imagine that's not a vote where i have to deal with the city as it is and not some crazy green ghana in which we all sit around. and a movie and enabling drugs the point is that is that is not going to that is not
7:21 am
going to happen since it's not going to happen campaign as a write in london is to each do their bit to make the air in the city cleaner by shining their cars and paddling around town instead while avoiding the most polluted routes of course but it's not clear how much difference it will make since the government itself admits that london will remain dangerously polluted until at least the year twenty twenty five. london. and our web scene has more stories lined up for you on r.t. dot com including a long full disclosure of the f.b.i. and chloe pleads guilty to spilling the beans on the press sporting a top secret mission and pretty agents lined up for its. last finest spread the word an apple i phone security time well spend their bosses say in the fight against crime. or some other world stories from
