12:00 am
the final push towards a deal. close to a nuclear agreement with iran. gets a sharp response from president putin. deliberately integration deal between ukraine and brussels. in the e.u. for the ukrainian government. to. deal with wasn't enough to prevent angry protests. and. we're going to see how a flame war because the twenty fourteen olympic torch has come.
12:01 am
forward with world headlines live from moscow this is. glad you can join today. there is a real hope that finally some kind of deal over iran's nuclear program is close all the foreign ministers from the six negotiating world powers who are changing the rules to join the talks and help overcome many obstacles to a landmark agreement in a sign that a breakthrough is possible the six nations talking to iran has reportedly agreed to recognize its right to enrich uranium a key demand from tehran iran's foreign minister says progress at this round of talks has been as high as ninety percent. with the russian delegation headed by foreign minister sort of off the media is being kept at arm's distance from the
12:02 am
talks and reports. there's been a flurry of activity since russia's sergey lavrov jetted into geneva he's already met with his iranian counterpart now despite this a number of sticking points still remain here that it's still going to be hammered out if this deal is going to be made now we know that iran's foreign minister has already said that unless the world's power is publicly recognize iran's right to you radium in richmond he's not signing a deal here and we know that coming into these negotiations iran has already made a number of concessions according to reports they've already agreed to stop enriching uranium to over five percent and they've also spoken about not using advanced centrifuges anymore but what are they getting in return well the u.s. and the e.u. have agreed to a limited relief on economic sanctions against iran that's if they ever get to
12:03 am
hammering out that deal so there's still a lot of positions that need to be reconciled and we're talking about potentially hammering out a deal over going to be easing sanctions against iran at the same time over in the u.s. we've got a hard line is in congress talking about potentially ratcheting up more sanctions against iran so a lot of work still to be done if that is going to be bridged by all the sides and we're going to be covering how these negotiations are progressing so stay tuned we're going to see if they can hammer out that historic deal that will bring an end to a decade of political wrangling over iran's nuclear program. and there's another obstacle the long awaited talks for a deal israel storage opposition to any compromise position is impacting on the negotiating stance is of france and the u.s. . so you spoke to john limbert the former u.s. deputy assistant secretary of state for iran who was also among the diplomats held
12:04 am
hostage in turn iran over thirty years ago he says just as tyrone has grown more flexible israel has become more hardline. but we've seen i think in the last three or four months since the election of president president rouhani and since some of the statements of the support of the supreme leader is i think a change of direction and a serious change of direction in terms of joining the international community but my israeli friends tell me is within israel itself there's a lot of controversy over the issue of iran and what should israeli what should the israeli stand be and some of the more extreme stands that are coming that coming out which oppose any any deal are creating concern in is a concern in israel a lot of people are quite have been criticizing the prime minister look what what. prime minister netanyahu seems to be asking for is not
12:05 am
a negotiated deal but in fact an iranian surrender where they are pressured into simply giving giving up well that's that's not a negotiation that's a so that's a surrender and if you get if you do squeeze somebody so hard that they surrender such an it such an agreement simply isn't going to last or hear it out there will be following the progress of the nuclear talks in geneva throughout the day both on air and online avanti dot com also when our web site where i ask you about the prospects of an agreement you can go there and you say. now in the program the e.u. has accused russia of blackmailing ukraine into ditching plans for european integration and joining a regional customs union instead moscow however says kiev was scared away by the e.u.'s political and economic pressure.
12:06 am
yeah voices being heard discontent over the abandoned trade talks between camp and brussels reaching the streets of the ukrainian capital thousands joined a second day of protest despite the government insisting a deal would have devastated the country's economy and like seeing it a chef ski looks at the broken promises. back to square one for ukraine's politics or kiev central square to be precise in two thousand and four the orange revolution started here gave independence square the event which dramatically changed political life in ukraine and set it on a year integration course nine years later the square is filled with people again only this time they are here because their president took a turn around well these protesters have been furious with the decision we have to wait for an independent ukraine we have to fight for tomorrow other people believe ukraine may have in fact dodged a bullet. the decision to suspend the preparation of signing the association agreement and zone of free trade with the e.u.
12:07 am
is the only one possible in the current difficult economic situation which we now have in ukraine do you have a delusion that life will be better in the e.u. talk to. polish people talk to gary and right now the e.u. is in a kind of a death spiral the e.u. has little right now to offer ukraine hours after the korean government's decision reports emerged that unocal beach told his list weenie and counterpart in a phone call that russia economically blackmailed kyi if out of signing the deal with the european union. i don't know what the ukrainian president was talking about with his lithuanian counterpart maybe we should all scar american friends about that. well of saying that ukraine would not enjoy trade benefits with russia if it formed a free trade zone with the e.u. is blackmail how would one describe these statements by european officials the signing of the most ambitious agreements the e.u. has ever offered to patna country would have sent
12:08 am
a clear signal to investors worldwide that ukraine is serious about its modernization pledge and becoming a predictable and reliable interlocutor for international markets because when i heard some dodges found out yesterday that ukraine has suspended not cancelled but suspended negotiations with the e.u. and wants to review everything we heard a threat from the e.u. to ukraine all the way up to organizing mass protests this is pressure and blackmail it having received no promise of compensation for potential economic damages from aligning with the e.u. give wants to create a three party commission with brussels and moscow to find a way to alleviate those losses which suggest unocal which has merely suspended not council the association strife the opposition meanwhile says it will continue taking people into the streets and demands that the president is impeached alexi russia reporting from key of ukraine and r.t. has been gathering expert analysis on how kiev could benefit from signing potential
12:09 am
trade pacts here's what we had. the opportunity to be part of an absolutely huge free trade zone it's a fantastic idea but the problem we really have is that already the european union model has been deeply compromised by the addition of countries that weren't ready such as bulgaria and romania the european union itself really has to concentrate on its own internal economic problems to say that this is a sort of a unexpected totally unexpected move is very strange because of course you can quest to balance and see whether it simply. grants for example the european union to dictate leg to greece. or to perth to grow it to other countries and impose a stereotype and franzen's and millions of people losing their jobs i think it's a wise move and the biggest loser is the e.u. because the e.u.
12:10 am
has conceived this association agreement like all the other agreements that it tries to sign with european states as a geo political project very important to understand that in the midst of all these are accusations against russia it's actually the e.u. which sees its expansion as it should little and indeed an ideological project and that's what has just hit the rocks today and online we've lined up the five reasons why i decided against further european integration if you go to r.t. dot com you can share your thoughts in the comments section. now on r t the olympic torch for the twenty fourteen winter games in sochi is going to new depths in siberia the latest destination is the bottom of the world's deepest lake that of lake bike how our correspondent james brown explains how the flame will continue to burn bright even in the shadowy depths underwater.
12:11 am
to borrow a phrase from a well known science points series the olympic torch continues to boldly go where no a live picture has gone before it's been to the north pole it's even been in space and now it's come to maybe russia's most famous and beautiful natural landmark lake baikal but this is no ordinary top because it's not just coming to lake baikal it's going in lake baikal and that of course means it needs special technology you can see divers preparing behind me and they will have torches that can burn hotter than two thousand degrees effectively acting as underwater flares they'll be three of them they will descend to around ten meters the flame along between them and then surface where they'll give it to the mysteriously named bird man of boy call who apparently is going to then fly it back to the shore states because it's going to
12:12 am
be a great show. for you here on r.t. this morning braced thousands of activists travel to the city to commemorate the death of a colleague twenty years ago. plus cracking down on the antique. washington considers putting a price on protest driven by america's all powerful oil. will keep interest rates at zero percent thing to increase america's debt load it's also time as the debt bubble pops everyone who should the dad the bankers including me on the size of debt issues they don't make money based on profits and losses they make money based on the size of the debt they issue so in a car is a debt issue quantitative easing is debt issue getting the job of the donald put yourself into debt that gives fees to the bankers. it destroys the economy it just roy society it destroys everything but the fees for the bankers.
12:13 am

12:14 am
if you're just joining us welcome to the program here on our team today several thousand people are expected on a macho to remember an anti fascism activist murdered in the early ninety's germany's still striving to far right parties political and social views the country is trying to forget. correspondent peter all of. the horrors of germany's history with the far right that perhaps no better illustrated than here in central berlin at the memorial to those who were murdered during the holocaust nacer on saturday the was potentially going to see clashes between far right neo nazis and and the fascist groups both here and berlin other cities and towns around the country now here in berlin taking part in the memorial to the murder of a n t fascist activist who was stabbed to death in a berlin metro station twenty one years ago now in the past that house resulted in
12:15 am
clashes between the far right and the far left now to find out a little bit more about the role of the far right and how they still exist here in modern germany i'm joined by dr gideon bosch thank you very much a historian and political scientist now. we stood next to the holocaust memorial perhaps there is no more poignant memorial to the horrors of naziism how much do these neo nazis relate to the the dictatorship of the one thousand nine hundred forty s. . definitely proud of this regime and so i want to establish a rule comparable to that so you would know who all these people where do they come from within society i mean you look around in germany the reminders are still there all of the the suffering of the german people. see is them how can people turn towards images like this will stick it it's very different to. come to this
12:16 am
movement very different ways to get into the basement but we find them many cases we find a fascination of national socialists they want to as they are really fast fascinated by hitler and by yes. and they do not believe they don't believe in what they learned in school of european history thank you very much that was dr gideon bush a political scientist and historian speaking to me about modern day neo nazi ism and fascism here in germany throughout the day i'll be bringing you updates on what's going on here on r.t. well there were unfortunate echoes of a lot. of match a group of supporters laid out a symbol on the ice which chopped more than a passing resemblance to a swastika at the full stories online for you right now. also the name of uncounted dead. they'll stay u.s. congress rejects attempts to force intelligence services to admit how many people
12:17 am
are being killed in drone strikes you can find out why the dot com. our program technology update in about ten minutes but for now here on our t.v. the shale gas boom in the u.s. has prompted congress to make an amendment to the first amendment freedom of speech and assembly might now come with a price tie when it comes to staging an anti fracking protest if the new legislation becomes law the fine for speaking out could be five thousand dollars guy in a church or counterpoints. when romania granted the u.s.
12:18 am
oil giant chevron more than a million acres of land to drill for shale deposits thousands of romanians took to the streets to protest they soon found out there was little they could do to protect their soil. in poland farmers stood up against chevron to fight fracking to no avail fracking pumps a high pressure cocktail of water sand and chemicals the underground to release shale gas from the bedrock the environmentalists say it has the potential to trigger earthquakes as well as polluted groundwater and the surrounding countryside the problems with shale gas mining in poland is a question of secretiveness and kind of not telling people the real truth about what's going on and not always telling never telling the other side the downside and i discovered this to be true with the polish government and pro polish authorities because they are in fact on the side of these big corporations walski partly shot his documentary drill baby drill in poland he says polish they
12:19 am
television refused to broadcast that you know normal people. can get the information to fight against the corporations and the normal people you know the middle class people their objective is really to protect the land here to protect their place and the chevron. the corporations are here to exploit the land and they're going to leave but the farmers will be here and this is really what the fight is about us energy giant grills both abroad and at home and congress has been more than helpful to them domestically this week the house of representatives passed a bill that would impose a five thousand dollars a year on anyone wishing to stage an official protest against the drilling project . to become law the bill also needs to make its way to the senate before being sponsored by the president this is pathetic sad silly attempt by industry to squelch to my. opponents of fracking on both sides of the atlantic or
12:20 am
even more fearful about the future of the democratic process as their governments and major corporations negotiate free trade agreements like the one between the u.s. and the e.u. that would effectively enable american companies to bypass european forwards and challenge your government's international tribunals whenever they felt that laws in the areas of public health the environment or social protection interfere with their profits and the opponents say it would give trans nationals even greater access to their soil and leave the people with even less say about their land on our team. afghanistan's leader hamid karzai is putting the brakes on a treaty which would allow american troops to stay in their country twenty fourteen washington wants a quick deal with karzai says any agreement should only be ratified after next year's afghan presidential elections are now meantime elders from all across the country are currently debating whether to back the accord and he will activist
12:21 am
brian baca he says president karzai is in a very delicate position. karzai is worried of course that he owes his existence to the presence of the american forces that have kept him in power and yet at the same time he knows that millions of afghans resent our angry indignation about the fact of the united states government has run roughshod over their country for the last twelve years what the united states is proposing is that the united states will maintain military bases and soldiers in afghanistan for a quarter of a century twenty twenty four is almost a quarter of a century after the two thousand and one invasion this is a clear instance of a colonial relationship where the united states invades and occupies a country uses various pretexts and then maintains military bases so that ultimately whoever is the government after karzai the us will be the determine or the real power in afghanistan. part of the world up a time here on the program to egypt now where clashes between borders and opponents
12:22 am
of the muslim brotherhood have left three people dead including a ten year old boy police intervened firing into the air and shower in the crowds with tear gas at the rally mob one hundred days since security forces dispersed of major demonstrations by supporters of the ex-president killing hundreds in the process. a twin bomb blast has killed at least fifteen injured eighteen people in pakistan city of karachi explosive devices were hidden on motorcycles cafes and no one has taken responsibility for the blasts which were in an area where both sunni and shia communities co-exist. marking the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of president john f. kennedy so protests and scuffles with police demonstrators shouting the cia killed j.f.k. accuse the government of covering up the real story behind the president's death he also used the occasion to claim freedom of speech is under attack in america and
12:23 am
memorial ceremonies were held in the city of dallas of course where kennedy was shot dead according to official investigators are still lee harvey. now the u.k. should do more to explain why it's billions of pounds worth of weapons to authoritarian regimes in saudi arabia and bahrain that's the view of a report by british m.p.'s which concluded the poor human rights record of the nations wasn't a good enough reason to stop sending the moms laura smith. it points out the ethical dilemma of the u.k. having this close relationship with bahrain and saudi arabia who obviously have such poor human rights records but it is the most important thing is that the government finds new ways of selling that relationship to the public essentially explaining its approach to the british public and not necessarily doing anything about those concerns and issues so for example the committee says that there's
12:24 am
there are concerns about juggling human rights with these lucrative trade deals. it recognizes that saudi arabia's role as a key purchaser of arms from the u.k. is quote controversial but it says it all balance there's no point in ending that relationship it wouldn't have any purpose at all now the campaign against the arms trade is not impressed with that it accuses the foreign affairs committee of providing basically the government says it continues to pander to despicable regimes in the service of arms contracts particularly for the manufacture so basically what this report is doing is recognizing the hypocrisy but not doing anything about it it's a representative of the company and against the trade believes the government's attempting to whitewash its ties with despotic regimes. there is a wrong attitude by the british government because it is they're always saying
12:25 am
we've got to understand the saudis with got a pounder to them with go to try to understand their point of view we will have influence over them if we take the extra steps if we sold them weapons if we try to foster good relationships we say that that's just the wrong way around you should put human rights human rights the saudis human rights so expect trip workers in saudi arabia and of course in bahrain as well they should be at the center of the u.k. government policy it shouldn't be about selling arms it should be about supporting human rights and that's the problem with this report human rights takes very much a second place to commercial interests and particularly to the interests of the big arms companies thanks for joining us here on this saturday morning what are you now nearly half past nine zero up next how to pluck information out of thin air all the secrets behind echo location on aussies technology up.
12:26 am
again if we take up your personal example off the government topping your phones and you know you see them later on to be years later you know some governments cannot afford to do that not only you know again some problem in journalism also again some has a state i remember thinking at the time and i discovered all this that if they were tapping my phone for this really in consequential. nation demist been tapping into but telephones here are not. right. and i think the church.
12:27 am
on our reporters twitter. and instagram. should be in the know. on the. interview. a feel good.
12:28 am
hello and welcome to technology updates on today's show we learn about the technology that keeps the moscow metro rolling. new serving a modern techniques make waves in the oil industry. and we take a peek through the innovation looking glass in this month's focal point. but first today's technology means that robotic help is no longer just a day science fiction making many walks of life both easy and safe and this is especially true if this next robotic dream team. reigns over brought the world's a dangerous place so robots are frequently used to scouts how it's areas and perform tasks to have. as for humans in addition to the classic humanoid design is often
12:29 am
since a nature for inspiration this has resulted in myriad weird and wonderful creations but even if we have to go in harm's way a robots will put us back together again if things go wrong however building a machine capable of such precision in highly demanding environments still requires the human touch. set up in st petersburg twenty three years ago the accounts employs around a thousand people it's forged a name for itself as a top supplier of high tech inspection and maintenance robots for the nuclear and oil and gas industries the company of ships around twenty thousand pieces of equipment to twenty three countries around the world but the applications of his products on just limited to earth day a concert even manufactured components for space ship docking mechanisms and electro mechanical fuel valves for launch vehicles we call it so with the company's deputy director to find out. to ensure complete
12:30 am
control over manufacturing processes and high tech product development we have over three hundred engineers and specialists who from project scope document drafting process development and implementation of created technology to make the product which is then manufactured using the equipment located on our site here so they still assembled tested and delivered to client. one of the secrets behind the company's cosmic success is it takes production facilities which occupy around five thousand square meters and continue to grow many of the products play a vital part in the safe operation of energy production facilities so failure is simply not an option to ensure the quality of his equipments remains top notch the company's hundred cakes the best tooling machines from supplies around the world while all these high end machinery may cost a pretty penny the full cycle production means that the company can design and build products at the drop of a hot this ability is not only earn.
