high hopes for a good story deal with iran over the country's nuclear push as top diplomats gather in geneva to clear last remaining hurdles. as ukraine opes against jumping into bed with the e.u. and cozy up to russia instead russel's accuses moscow of ludwig while president putin says it was you're abusing the dirty tricks. torture is or another leg of it's a big journey to stall street plunging to the bottom of the deepest lake called us and conquering open space.
7:01 am
international news and comment live from moscow this is all see with me thanks for joining us there is an exam. where his story deal on iran's nuclear program could potentially be signed although foreign diplomats on the iranian delegation sound optimistic any further details about just of what's happening there has been almost impossible to extract polevoy carries they're for. foreign ministers are locked in talks at the moment security has been beefed up here there at the intercontinental hotel where most of the negotiations are taking place and there's so much security that we've had to move away from that when i in the media center but these talks are shrouded in secrecy that negotiations taking place behind closed doors and there is a real sense that the delegations are extremely wary of any leaks coming through in the media so certainly there are signs that
7:02 am
a breakthrough could be on the cards today one major stumbling block was iran's insistence on its public on public recognition for its right to ukrainian enrichment and now has apparently been overcome in the doing all of the draft agreement. iran has also reportedly agreed to stop enriching uranium to five percent and in exchange it would receive a limited relief to economic sanctions for six months now i've just been speaking to russia's deputy foreign minister and he spoke to me about the secrecy surrounding the talks that this is such a sensitive issue and it requires a real media silence that some of the leaks that have been coming through in the mainstream media that have been pinning the blame on the lack of progress on iran have been unconstructive to progression in these negotiations he also said that a breakthrough isn't guaranteed but it is close the remaining stumbling block here
7:03 am
at the moment seems to be a rack heavy water facility which if it goes into operation would be able to produce weapons grade plutonium but we aren't getting a sense from the other delegation that there is a good chemistry and everybody is hoping to bridge these final gaps in the bid to hum around this historic deal that would question and to ten years of political wrangling over iran's nuclear program so we're going to be watching as the. progress is states and we're going to be bringing you all the details. and it's a zero thorn to any deal which has constant dock shadow with the talks impacting the american and french style and says i was spoke to general allen that the former u.s. deputy assistant secretary of state for iran it was among the diplomats held hostage during the notorious crisis at the u.s. embassy in tehran more than thirty years ago and believes it is are a lot of iran which has become more hardline that we've seen i think in the last
7:04 am
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 by the 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 and concern in israel a lot of people are quite have been criticizing the prime minister look what. prime minister netanyahu seems to be asking for is not a negotiated deal but in fact an iranian surrender where they are pressured into simply giving giving up well that's that's not
7:05 am
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. and joining me now live with more perspective is no hominid has son johnny professor of international relations at cedric universe to enter ron professor conny welcome to r.c. it's very nice to have you on the program so can we believe can we expect a breakthrough will the reach this time around because as far as we remember last time there was a lot of optimism but no results what can we expect now. i do believe that. today we're more than ever closer to getting a good deal. and i do believe that what we are witnessing you know is something that we can call it the breakthrough year of course it is of course it
7:06 am
may not be a perfect deal for either side but something kind of wincing and something satisfactory for both sides. since i think in the next few hours we are witnessing somehow a turning point in the really nuclear negotiation process exactly and actually last week u.s. secretary of state john kerry mentioned that evening of sanctions for iran will be five percent or less is that a deal iran is actually looking forward to. well it's again on both sides iran is somehow getting some part of what it wants to see and the other side is actually getting just parts of what they want so they all are so maybe in the final deal there is some kind of balance or equation
7:07 am
between what every side can get from you is a recognition by any language and mission of the rainy invite to have the nuclear technology peacefully somehow is in the sanctions partly on the other side maybe partly limiting your aim in nuclear capabilities so i think on both sides were talking about partly achievements not a total achievement for everyone what do you make of israel's role here do you think that staunch know can affect the position of the u.s. and france here. i think there is a limitation to israel's one of her ability israel cannot afford to stand against this process this process is something that toward powers are now behind it iran actually accepted it so in that sense it's want for israel to stand against it and
7:08 am
as your other guest actually rightly mentioned what israel is are willing to see is somehow a total surrender by one side which is simply impossible so if you're talking about obama and the negotiations in a win win situation this is that everybody now seems to be satisfied with and we are going to somehow see it and one important issue here as we were talking about a negotiation is the uranium right for enrichment according to article four n.p.t. this is in a little bit right and i quote in alienable droit for every signature of n.p.t. to research develop and produce and use nuclear technology so enrichment is surely included in this whole process what can we expect a big deal fails. well that would be very disappointing for
7:09 am
everybody maybe. a number of arab countries will be happy about that that would be a setback in my view because we have been seeing a lot of air force from all sides five plus one you won in the past few weeks to reach that deal and that would be a setback very very sad story maybe again everybody goes to the first square which is which is not like the my view i'm a little bit optimistic i know you hope that in the next few orders we will see the deal. of international relations said taking advice to tehran professor carney thank you very much indeed for your time and perspective. and i will be following the progress of the nuclear talks in geneva through round the day today on air and online at r.t. dot com for you and also on our website where else can you about the prospects of
7:10 am
an agreement go about to have your say on the. 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 use political and economic pressure discontent over the abandoned trade talks between cave and brussels materialized on the streets of the ukrainian capital crowds gathered for a second day of process just by the government insisting a deal would have devastated the country's economy executorship scale looks at the broken expectations now. back to square one for ukraine's politics orchy of central square to be precise in two thousand for the orange revolution started here gives independence square the event which dramatically changed political life in ukraine and set it on the euro integration course nine years later the square is filled with people again only this time they are here because their president took
7:11 am
a turn around well these protesters have been furious with the decision we are 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. is the only one possible in the current difficult economic situation which we now have in ukraine you have a delusion that life will be better and that you you talk to polish people talk to gary and right now the e.u. is in a kind of a death spiral may be you has little right now to offer ukraine hours after the korean government's decision reports emerge that unocal beach told his lithuanian counterpart in a phone call that russia economically blackmailed out of signing the deal with the european union. i don't know what the ukrainian president was talking about with
7:12 am
his lithuanian counterpart maybe we should ask our 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 i disagree that the agreement could be signed later it would be very difficult because too much risk is involved ukraine has missed a chance to remove the main obstacle in its way through integration with the e.u. 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 having received no promise of compensation for potential economic damages from aligning with the e.u. kiev 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
7:13 am
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 kiev in ukraine. and also he has been gathering acts that analysis on how k. of could benefit from signing potential trade pogs and 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 belgariad and rumania the european union itself really has to concentrate on its own internal economic problems to say that this is a sort of with an unexpected totally unexpected move it's very strange because of course you can cross to bear on sense see whether it's interesting as well. as for example the european union to dictate to greece. or to perth to grow
7:14 am
ok other countries and then there's a step or two and presence and millions of people losing their jobs movements that i think that it became clear to the ukrainian president general quaritch that if you sign their deal he's not going to get anything financially or the e.u. so basically office things which are not tangible you know it doesn't offer immediate economic benefits it says there ukraine at some point in the future will have access to the e.u. markets but when will this happen. on our website we've lined up to find reasons why can't have just tried it again throughout the european integration go to auntie dot com to share your thoughts in the comments section. from the greatest highs to extreme lows after being taken on a historic awoke in open space they sauntered twenty fourteen olympic torch has now

in searches across germany to commemorate an anti-fascist activist mattered in the early ninety's the government's on a crusade against abuse promoted by far right groups only one now reports the horrors of germany's history with the far right are perhaps no better illustrated than here in central berlin at the memorial to those who were murdered during the holocaust later on saturday though the tension is going to see clashes between far right neo nazis and anti fascist groups both here in berlin and other cities around the country now here in berlin it's taking part in the memorial to the murder of a anti fascist activist who was stabbed to death in a metro station twenty one years ago now in the past that house resulted in 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
7:19 am
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 nine hundred thirty s. and forty's so. definitely proud of source regime and so i want to establish a rule comparable to that so you know who are these people where do they come from within society i mean you look around modern germany the reminders are still there of the the suffering of the german people naziism how can people turn towards images like the swastika it's very different to. come to this movement very different ways to get into that but we find them many cases we find a fair summation of national socialists they want to as they are really fair
7:20 am

protesting become a thing of luxury at any drill site in the united states courtesy of new laws scowcroft and by the oil lobby aside from forcing demonstrators to shell out five thousand dollars for a rally permit the bill would also excuse the federal government from regulating the fracking industry can now report. when romania granted the u.s. 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 bedrock environmentalists say it has the potential to trigger
7:22 am
earthquakes as well as pollute the groundwater and the surrounding countryside the problems will show it 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 discover this to be true with the polish government and 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 state 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 farms will be here and this is really what the fight is about us energy giant
7:23 am
drilled 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 fee on anyone wishing to stage an official protest against the drilling project. to become law the bill also needs to make its way through the senate before being sunk by the president this is. pathetic. cilia by industry to squelch democracy opponents of fracking on both sides of the atlantic or 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 us and the e.u. that would effectively enable american companies to bypass european ports and challenge e.u. governments and 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

financial while the. there is now an all new form of humanitarian aid for the twenty first century created by members of the occupy movement this is nothing to do with hunger or homelessness what a different key problem in the so-called first world debt the rolling jubilee project has already bought around fifteen million dollars in personal debt for americans around the country most of the financial obligations that they bought were for medical bills and now the people who have to pay these bills are free from their burdens the group claims that the secondary debt market is very cheap and that they're able to buy the nearly fifteen million dollars in debt for only four hundred thousand dollars the secondary market exists because banks try to sell consistently unpaid debt to third parties for less than a nickel on the dollar right now i would be begging the rolling jubilee project to
7:28 am
get rid of my college loans but alas this is always purchased anonymously so it's all pure luck who gets their debt purchased the important thing about this project is that they're actually doing something against the evil system instead of just blogging about it and all the fifteen million dollars is a time a need to drop in the bucket it may have really saved the financial lives of many americans but that's just my opinion. welcome to the kaiser report i-max kaiser you may have heard that amsterdam has begun paying alcoholics and cans of beer that's right and exchange for a five cans of beer a pack of tobacco and ten year olds the alcoholics clean parks and streets the
7:29 am
city's aim is to keep the drunks occupied so that they can no longer cause trouble in the parks and indeed one of these alcoholic park workers said that the structure has kept him out of trouble but that if it weren't for the beer he wouldn't bother showing up at all i know you're thinking you're thinking that this sounds a whole lot like the policy of quantitative easing and you'd be right by central banks keep the debt aholic sabina at least spending by giving them a seemingly free lunch of low interest rate credit crack. one could think of q e as meals on wheels for over leveraged consumer holiday debt addicks of course feeding the addiction merely hastens the addicts demise but alas it keeps the addict doll sile in the meantime is not correct max they're trying to keep us dead aholic south here dos cyle of course with all this quantitative easing it apparently free money that's the important thing they feel like we're getting a free lunch so we stay quiet we keep consuming or keep consuming debt at least now
7:30 am
here's the first headline about quantitative easing what car salesman ben bernanke he said at dinner last night so this is simon black of sovereign man and he was at a dinner with the national economy club and ben bernanke was the guest of honor he said at one point during the evening when pressed about whether his quantitative easing program was good for wall street at the expense of main street he being ben bernanke he flat out denied it saying that such a premise is simply not true he defended his printing eighty five billion dollars per month suggesting that fixing interest rates as zero is beneficial for society because among other things it allows people to buy cars right well and allows people to go into debt into ever deeper debt and it's funny because this idea of giving out all of them for them is beer to keep them docile to keep them cleaning up the park clean up their.
