firearms and find out whether that acknowledging it could be about to get out of control. what you are to international live in moscow with me marina joshie welcome to the program the protests continue great against the government's rejection of an e.u. trade deal and assess a nation and association agreement and that as an summit is set to start in the us when ian capital vilnius where ukraine's president promised to explain to the blocs leaders why they turned down the path well for more on this now we can cross live to a correspondent here she asked who is in the ukrainian capital kiev for us there and i see you so do bring us so the mood in the atmosphere from the ukrainian capital what's it like today is that any color or no. you know the protests are continuing
3:02 am
in kiev but they have been peaceful so far although over the past several days in fact right now the more i look more like a student party. at the central square but this may well be calm before the storm because everyone here is waiting until the summit in vilnius which kicks off late on thursday and will continue into friday and whether or not the e.u. association deal between brussels and kiev will be signed basically this is the main question which worries everyone out here in ukraine and the opposition has already said some of the leaders have already said that they will be taking people into the streets on a massive national wide strike and something they describe as a euro revolution in case the deal will not be signed which for now looks pretty much like that one the sign indeed. the protests are small but still here we would watching the situation what happens with the protests but they're not only about protests at the time they're not only creating this tension in kiev but also diplomatic tension as well because moscow and process have been accusing each other
3:03 am
of blackmailing ukraine but while they're still trying to figure out who blackmailed who some european politicians are wasting no time coming to kiev and energizing the crowd from the stage with if i respect his one particular speech by alice when an official even caused the controversy let's listen to that. as the speaker of the lithuanian parliament i congratulate the people of ukraine as you have gathered here to stand for the european future of your country i'm proud to be a miss you any a has already taught its path to becoming a member of the european union and we are ready to be ukraine's guide if you any and trust that the ukrainian people will make the right choice. so the after the speech by the lithuanian parliament speaker was made a high ranking diplomat from when an embassy was summoned to the foreign minister of ukraine to provide his explanation so you see tensions are high not only on the ground but also on the diplomatic level as well. i'll show it you know
3:04 am
a lot of. being that the ukrainian you do maybe sign of the opening of the summit in vilnius today so what are the chances of this happening. but we do know that the city on the covers the president of ukraine is traveling to vilnius other biggest question of course is whether he will be signing this this deal or not we see a stone wall assurances coming from the government the prime minister the foreign minister they got to convince yourself they all reach the rate that the deal will not be signed it's not in the economic interests of ukraine at the moment but in the rollercoaster ride which is the ukrainian politics and we've seen it over the years many times you cannot say anything for sure and there is a johnson there is a possibility that going to college me bow down to the pressure which the protests which have been lost in the five days already have been put on him so i guess we have to wait and see i might call the ball scott will be in vilnius when the summit takes off and i will of course bring all the latest developments on the grand
3:05 am
capital as we get it here all right ali thank you so much for bringing us this update from the running capital kiev let's hear cesky reporting there for us live. now the e.u. says ukraine still has time to change its mind over the signing of the deal we spoke to paul mittal from the u.k. in the panel's party and he believes there's a wide disregard for the risks of ukraine's integration into the union. they don't know enough about the problems that your house will be moving once free ukraine to eventually didn't really want it but you need to join the you say happy it's a trial and they don't want to say that it's actually you know ninety five percent of he isn't even in your i mean this is an expansionist organization really in britain certainly don't want ukraine to join the european union because if they join that means our borders will be opened up to forty six million ukrainians and in ukraine the average wage is around three hundred euro moment and we know that if
3:06 am
they do join a lot of them will cold western at the moment we have twenty two percent youth unemployment rate in britain we concentrate. any further with any more people. more of what's behind ukraine's u. turn on the backlash it sparked head to our website r.t. dot com. if ellis senate has stripped former prime minister silvio berlusconi of his parliamentary seat after his conviction for tax fraud the saudi sound your old politician has dominated the tell you in political scene for two decades despite facing serious criminal charges and being deprived of political immunity he remains defined as are going off reports from rome. it was quite an emotional vote at the senate and the comments that we've been getting from mr berlusconi and his supporters are frankly just as emotional they've deemed his political rivals as the firing squad they've been saying that this is
3:07 am
a day of mourning for italian democracy and that this was a political assassination bill is clearly looking at and having to deal with several convictions including abuse of power and having sex with an underage prostitute so scream self is saying that he's not planning to back down he's not planning to go underground and wants to stay with his supporters you know his rivals on the other hand are celebrating comparing the former prime minister with al capone to the. the chicago gangster who for years managed to avoid prosecution but then was finally jailed for tax evasion you know all this is happening amid some serious problems with the cannot be italian economy the current government hasn't really been very successful in dealing with them they've barely managed to push through the two thousand and fourteen budget which is in the focus of a loss of criticism the economy's going to worsen sessions is the second world war unemployment is very high right now. but i am as powerful i believe is the time government is using the scandal surrounding those going to distract public
3:08 am
attention away from the country's problems. the dramatic economic situation which is to be ease not only because of the if you do this of the current governments but also because of the european. extremely illogical and street measures the unemployment. rate should the fifth that he did the starting so parts of its assets i mean this is something that makes you believe very nervous and worried for the future really the events of this earning me have been done by the italian media and the. people's attention and so it was for the issues being used. to cover up these kinds of problems from chart we're even. in the program there is no such thing as an israeli well on paper at least just how do we look at how
3:09 am
a group of campaigners are calling for the recognition of national identity. and what does it take to make a fully functioning gon at home well as technology advances it seems just a three d. printer will do the job in the us critics are warning that development has reached a dangerous point with time running out before mel desktop printers hit the consumer market or does marina find out how much of a game changer it could be. rhett's shooting range in austin texas is normally packed with gun enthusiasm. today the difference is that he's made firing rounds with a do it yourself firearm the world's first three d. printed metal gun we wanted to showcase the abilities of what direct metal can do and what a better way than find something that can withstand a bunch of heat tolerance accuracy all wrapped into one which in america everybody
3:10 am
knows which is a par. eric much later is a project coordinator at solid concepts company specializing in three d. printing game prints are in the arts he was granted an exclusive tour of their austin facility which boasts ten three d. industrial printers and a glimpse of our technological future these are all the three d. printed parts that went into making this bar after getting a federal firearms license the company used a process called direct metal lees or centering to produce this browning nine hundred eleven pistol takes about twenty five to thirty five hours depending on the machine we put it on and what materials were grown in. this three d. printed in metal gonna has fired over one thousand rounds in the meantime solid concepts has manufactured its second ninety nine eleven firearm we plan on making
3:11 am
a few more prototypes for additional testing. and we don't we don't plan on going into full production on these we can afford to sell them. at the price of be required to get our money back while the prices of many three d. printers have fallen below one thousand dollars solid concepts insists the stainless steel firearm they've introduced to the world can't be replicated by hobbyists these machines start at six hundred thousand and go up to a million dollars they need to be in. industrial environments they require more electricity than is available in residential areas and they require inert gases in the chamber that are just not commonly available so it's stuff only an industrial commercial type process and it'll be years before metal printers become available on the consumer market if at all not exactly the world's first mini metal maker has already been created it prints using precious metal clay and with laser centering
3:12 am
patterns set to expire in february it's predicted that metal desktop printers will hit the consumer market before you know it five years you know small this is going to do it maybe five years after that you starts at home workshops and and you know having one on your desktop at home so that we are going there that technology exists the price will come down. as the world has learned the convenience of technology has a downside we all love to the internet cell phones e-mail and social media before finding out that our beloved data is being monitored and stored by the n.s.a. thing the astonishing capability of three d. metal printers is no longer a secret. so when they become a part of our households have alongside the microwave and flat screen t.v. thing what people choose to physically create in the privacy of their home thing will be beyond the control of the u.s. government going up or nyah r.t.
3:13 am
texas well here's why the first three d. firearm looked like and it was created in may this year the technology has come a long way in just a few months and it's now possible to make something that looks at our works like a real weapon but the biggest threat here is according to engineering expert hod lipson is a firearms can now be disguised. it's a very universal kind of technology that can be used in lots of different ways some some good some not so good but it is alarming that people have started printing guns i would say the most dangerous thing is let's say a gun that doesn't look like a gun but looks like. something else and so that has this ability to make things in any shape and form really defies a lot of the conventional thinking around regulating guns around detecting them and so forth and i think that's sort of it's a whole new world when it comes to controlling these kinds of things and coming up

rate in the western world for drugs like prozac higher than france germany and much of mainland europe some health experts put that down to overworked doctors prescribing drugs when therapy would be more effective some say we feel we don't have time to be depressed so we take drugs looking for a quick fix but the depression alliance reckons it's at least in part due to the effects of the economic downturn i think there are people that have come forward whose lives have been hit very badly by by losing jobs and not been able to get into jobs young people trying to get started and then finding that the financial pressures that they're under has meant that they just are not getting off the starting blocks so many then the economic recovery will mean a return to mental health too and until then the u.k. will keep on taking the pills. well not everyone in britain is depressed by money troubles former prime minister tony blair has been treated to

a dinner at buckingham palace hired out by the us investment bank j.p. morgan geyser takes a ruthless view on that and here's a quick taster from the show that's coming up later. jamie diamond rented out watching him palace in order to entertain his close friend tony blair the dinner took place only days before jamie diamond had agreed to give the us department of justice a very small cut mortgage fraud and oh how the painting of those presents outside buckingham palace gates rejoiced at the impossibly large number of thirteen billion dollars to. a state without nationality and that may sound strange but for some it's a reality people in israel cannot be documented as being israeli and as our policy here discovers a united national identity could be an important step towards and it's criminal in the country the u.s.

nine hundred forty seven which says that a jewish state would be formed not an israeli one if a person was to be identified as israeli in the national registry it would challenge the claim that israel is a jewish country something the supreme court is aware of as it is we have mary and a group of israelis petitioning for change there already is a lot. different about form an arab citizen this is something not accepted democratic we were despicable long. all of that. but for now the supreme court has dismissed the case leaving the debate on what is an israeli open for years it was truly created by one of the country's greatest caricaturists camile goddaughter better known as dorsch but slick is clearly jewish as a question. came up with a young man because israel was still a young state and slowly he created the new israeli national guard more with the

3:25 am
to sports to realize my potential. he went from swimming to taking up a chance to join russia's brand new sledge hockey squad. no one is going to bring you things on a silver platter but here we had an opportunity to work for it since two thousand and nine when we were told we were going to participate in the celtic paralympics it's been our driving force in a country that struggled to accommodate people's disabilities russia's paralympic coach says the team is helping to change perceptions in the demos over what a few minutes ago a new china was more of these guys managed to prove to themselves their relatives and the entire society that they're not people with disabilities but people with limited abilities that's hockey has been a part of paralympics is one thousand nine hundred four but this is the first year that russia will keep this board only change here for the years ago by dean remembers before. we were just staring at one another not really knowing what to do first. let me show you what it's like here is the sledge what it is this
3:26 am
is the blade and this small area is the seat. which means it's terribly unsteady like your so just imagine you have to keep your balance and simultaneously carry the puck you keep falling down and it takes a lot of time to get back up but now we're skilled that if. these sledge hockey players there were really just so she hasn't been easy it's taken an immense amount of hard work personal sacrifice and dedication but the payoff is that it's just on the eyes the principles of football it's after this experience i believe that people who have survived a car crash or a plane crash will look at us and realise that even with an injury like that you can live on if you can set your own goals and that she's. sick. from. russia.

and of down the ailing economy forces children to work at all jobs in child labor in europe just ahead here and. i hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics have lost all meaning in the past when there was the cold war it was like a battle between two ideologies taking place in the abstract and the one nine hundred thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self-proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and it's quite the olympics having the majority of the countries on earth participating there are now horribly horribly bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off their ex used to build up some infrastructure by i think this is a big misconception let's look back to the two thousand
3:28 am
a lympics in beijing yet china is really develop in the last twenty years but the olympics really teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about their ancient culture or the way they think of the way they live no nothing at all all we saw were some flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i hate to say it but i think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battle ground again then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries a generic stadiums but that's just my opinion. i think.
3:29 am
