why you should care about you and. this is why you should. only. be president speaks like to me a pretense as russia is not seeking to dominate the globe but well stand fun to protect its traditional values. washington says it's considering sanctions against ukraine putting its weight behind anti-government protesters look at both who are rallying to differ and their fish or. silent alliance israeli and saudi intelligence have reportedly been having secret meetings after a breakthrough nuclear deal with iran left both countries frustrated.
international news live from moscow this is our sea international with me. and a very warm welcome to the program. and touched upon this is racial in ukraine saying russia is open for dialogue hey insisted that if you crane wants partnership moscow is willing to talk and will offer economic integration on equal terms meanwhile the united states is considering sanctions against ukraine over the authorities response to ongoing demonstrations. all policy options including sanctions are on the table in our view but obviously that still is being evaluated. protesters in kiev are
reinforcing barricades that have been dismantled by police thousands are still out on the streets with the one opposition leader having rejecting calls to hold talks with the country's president while demanding the government step down but there is more than one opinion being expressed in ukraine's rallies going to takes a look at the other side of the damn. thing it's new it's hip it's exciting it's a revolution and like moths to a flame the bright lights of rebellion are drawing in western politicians political has beans to even homegrown rock stars all keen to breathe the air of change tasty pictures in the fashion the message the foreign media is having a blast to the chest here feel they're fighting for the future of the country pro european protesters clashing with police they saw these agreements as
a chance to open ukraine up to european business ideas rule of law standards here my done has received a massive amounts of airtime in mass media both at home and abroad but the simple fact is the opinion of people here is not necessarily representative of the opinion in all of ukraine in fact it's just the opposite but you wouldn't know it just by watching the news but here's the other side of ukraine's protests the invisible one they may go unnoticed by the media but thousands of people are rallying in many cities you have read on trade to join the e.u. and opposition instead of taking students and school children to the scratch should sit down at the negotiation table and help find the best solution for our country and why don't you agree with gathered to say no to the orange strange. they captured buildings broke the work of the government is unacceptable and will only home ordinary people. the mess just doesn't fit the pretty picture of a change
a revolution. that if you think it's democracy and revolution it's a nationalistic coup they instigate people to break the law they want to grab power and clear ukraine apart. unlike the people yelling ukraine is europe in capitals independence square these people have been looking at the possible consequences of the trade deal with europe stuff is imaginary and we don't want our utility payments to rise and pensions and salaries frozen. only need us for cheap labor to buy their products unlike the protests in kiev these rallies aren't marred by the presence of masked men ultra radical slogans or tumbling monuments and because for the media if it bleeds it leads only telegenic revolution gets a chance to be heard and seen in kiev it in an r.t. . president vladimir putin has used his state of the nation tries to defend
russia's traditional values and incest as an increasing number of people around the world support them headrest a wide range of issues in his speech let's get the details from. life from the kremlin why they were so what's the main focus of base year's presidential address that first of all the elite of russian society has gathered at the prime and today since traditionally these addresses are the perfect format to find out what the president and his team are planning for the next year and even further than that and while they were putting did touch on quite a lot of issues lots of domestic problems he talked about the you talked about health care education the need in the world all of. the brand new technologies and they need to boost their demand as well inside the country but talk the talk about what's going to rush. issues of course as well according to the reporting you can only see is that there is a demand an international demand to protect historic values there is
a crisis in that according to the president right now and he also specified that being. trying to protect to store the values it doesn't mean keeping society from moving forward but it's really more about trying to prevent society from rolling back west listen to what the president has to say to you. on the biggest market which in many countries today public morals are being reconsidered national traditions and differences are being demolished we know that there are even more people around the globe who support our position in terms of ensuring traditional values which have been the spiritual and moral base of civilization for all nations for centuries. diplomacy is another issue touched upon by the president in his address and he did talk about recent diplomatic breakthroughs the one with syria of course the chemical weapons deal and the most recent breakthrough
around the iranian nuclear program finally an agreement was reached between iran and the international community and both warning to the russian president it seems that the general message was that he should be examples and this only proves that diplomacy is possible and it's not about using force to try to resolve a problem what is going to put an also spoke about russia's military strength and the current demand to actually increase the strength let's listen to what else yes . you know when you're looking at what you do see unless it was more sinister that it's no country should harbor illusions of achieving military dominance over russia we will never let it happen russia is ready to meet those challenges both political and technological we've got all the potential needed our military. doctrine as well as our military equipment and i was without a doubt to ensure russia's security which another topic quite important for current
russian relations with though the war basically is its relationship with europe and with its former allies and now of course the commonwealth of independent states putting to the president moscow is not backing away from its you region. union plans the customs union plans but it's also not looking at preventing its allies from looking to the west. to live from moscow thank you very much indeed. mershon uses a minor increase in economic growth to boost its foreign aid budget. if he were some of the british government at the time when money is very tight for everyone for families on the government to be sending more and more times payers money abroad. later on we'll find out why you can't fish told us so keen to send cash
elsewhere and risk upsetting those still struggling at home. and probably coles to cut taxes get that tensional dallas city council which was put in place before last law restricting the industry they said of all stories coming up after a short break. i played this street cleaner. love with a waitress on stage imagine that there's an audience you should take drugs and drink like of. the middle east told me about the circus but i was such a punk i was like well what circus. circus so clearly it's going to. break down stereotypes about kids from
welcome back to aussie international the unlikely pairing of saudi arabia and israel are reportedly tipping out in response to washington's middle east policy is representatives from the country's intelligence services apparently met for talks in jerusalem and they are united in their disdain for america's reversal of intervention in syria followed by the agreement of a historic nuclear deal with iran and their church account takes a look. the two countries saudi arabia and israel found themselves in one but in
their frustration over washington israel and saudi arabia hate the nuclear deal that the u. was another world power struck with iran and israel is very vocal about it the saudis are a little bit more restrained but the saudi intelligence chief said there would be a major shift in dealings with the us saudi arabia wanted the us to go all in on syria the u.s. instead went along with russia's proposal and cut a deal with the syrian leadership to get rid of chemical weapons there saudi arabia and israel are very suspicious of each other the saudis oppose the creation of the jewish state they support the palestinian cause so it's too early to speak of friendship but washington definitely brought them closer together at least in their desire to threaten war saudi arabia is now reportedly working with israel on a plan to attack iran it reportedly gave israel the green light to use its airspace in the case of a strike and pledged assistance here in washington these were the lobby is fighting
what they describe as a tendency in the u.s. to disengage from the middle east the apac meeting was all about it they talked about how war fatigue in the u.s. could be a reason for washington to want to be less involved in regional affairs they saw the nomination of chuck hagel as defense secretary as a signal pointing in that direction of course the obama administration quickly reassured everybody that the u.s. will not stop interfering in the affairs of the region but israel and saudi arabia are not so sure at this point or they don't see the kind of interference that they would want to see i'm going to shut down in washington or to. prince khaled to been. believes the u.s. is ready to jeopardize ties with its closest allies to preserve its interests in the middle east. yeah. i believe the main reason for the change in america's alliances in the middle east is issue of the iranian nuclear program and that's
a shift in the u.s. approach to iran from one of confrontation to one of containment this is the main reason even if it does come at the expense of america's strategic allies like saudi arabia and israel it is of utmost importance to the u.s. and its interests in the middle east us foreign policy takes care of its own interests but our strategic alliances with israel under nonpermanent alliances like with saudi arabia with american interests are much more important to washington than alliances and let's not forget that saudi arabia and israel always need washington support militarily and on the intelligence level as well as in many other aspects they need the usa and they rely on it. former u.s. diplomat john grier playing thrust ration with america's foreign policy is a first for common ground for israel and saudi arabia. both countries israel and saudi arabia are very annoyed or frightened right now because of american policy toward iran now what's happened to
a new way of frightening both of them is that first of all bob i actually called and talked on the telephone to his counterpart something an american president hadn't done for decades and second meeting in geneva actually produced an agreement which looks like iran will make significant changes in its nuclear policy in exchange for a lessening of sanctions trade keep to the agreement then we will definitely be less and less willing sanctions and this is driving israel and saudi arabia nuts. onscreen and online for you as well and here's a look at what's waiting for you on r.t. dot com today lost in translation. his own to find the deaf interpreter from nelson mandela's memorial service it turns out he was making out the sign language as he went along had to set up home to find out how the tricks that was unlocked. and also that a case dismissed a six year old boy is suspended from school after kissing the hand of
a classmate who likes the naughty dot com find out how a show of affection the claims of sexual harassment. right on the street. first straight to you and i think that you're. on a reporter's twitter. and instagram. today in the. wealthy british style. sometimes it's because. of the high. markets. find out what's really happening to the global economy for
a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines. is a report on our team. welcome back but now the u.k. has managed to squeeze out a little more growth than expected britain is increasing before an aid budget the treasury chief is about to approve a one billion pound increase but with most people yet to feel the benefits of economic recovery menacing the aid is going the wrong way as reports. britain's economy is growing better than expected so more money in our pockets to relieve some of the misery of lift people out of poverty help them pay their heating bills but controversially and despite cuts and hardship home the more positive figures will also mean increasing the amount the u.k.
sends a broad in foreign aid not because there's more suffering in the world but to meet an obituary target not point seven percent of national income the british government seems set on increasing amount of money it's sending overseas for the sake of meeting a particular target not. target driven policy which is the worst kind of way to set policy but we think it's irresponsible of the british government at the time when money is very tight for everyone for a family from the government to be sending more and more times payers money particularly when a lot of the current defeat budget is not being spent very well money gets lost through fraud money's being spent in countries british even have their own aid programs to other countries it means sending a billion pounds more over the next five years and where's that money going well over the last five years nigeria has received more than a billion pounds from the british taxpayer it's got its own space program and is
mired in corruption an estimated several billion pounds are stolen from the states every year by corrupt officials and politicians and india also trying to push a man in space they get two hundred eighteen million pounds a year from britain and they've got their foreign aid program worth one point three billion dollars the gas' accountability report shows the u.k. already spends more percentage wise on foreign aid than any of the g eight country and the greatest irony britain is still borrowing billions of pounds every month and now growth is on the up it will be borrowing more than it has to just to give us a way. now refer to some other global news in brief. demitra violence between the riot police and fire is the most students have a goal for
a second university in cairo security forces fired tear gas to disperse crowds many of whom were rallying in support of the ex-president harming morsi since sunday the country has seen widespread scuffles between students and police and over twenty people have been detained. in germany a crane question to a supermarket killing one person and injuring at least five others rescuers were struggling to cope through the wreckage as other parts of it were all sort of thought to be a risk of collapse the reason for the accident is still being investigated. one has condemned israel for demolishing palestinian homes in the occupied west bank after dozens more properties were destroyed the move displaced families for the second time in two weeks i was trying to expand its settlements a process which was strongly criticised even by its close ally the us so is there a power and restarting of the peace process between tel aviv and ramallah over
three hundred palestinians have been displaced are of them children. to brazil now where to run shaul rein in the state of rio de janeiro a leash floods and landslides causing traffic jams closing airports and halting commuter trains casualties have been reported yet but at least one person is missing after falling into a swollen river over the weekend heavy rains in the northeastern brazilian state bya left at least sixteen people dead and one person that is just like. the city council in dallas texas has introduced a new norm putting the brakes on the fracking industry and it essentially moves the drilling or wells far from residential areas this comes after texans are voiced major concerns that shale gas drilling is putting them on their homes or tourist. it was shaken by a strain of ask wait several weeks ago with scientists suggesting nearby drilling might have caused this finds me and my mentalist w.
mccord was at the council meeting and agrees fracking should not take place anywhere near population centers they weren't drilling in our densely populated urban areas they were drilling out in remote areas with low population where they weren't doing any damage or destruction to anything when you start coming into an area with that dense a population bringing in all that truck traffic all those chemicals to be exposed into the air in the water in the soil where people are harmed and where traffic accidents are are prevalent and we're spills of chemicals are dangerous that becomes a whole different deal other cities are looking to what we're doing there already and after ordinance and other places are looking to tighten up ordinances so yeah this probably will set a precedent and it's probably a pretty major one as the u.k. i just close to a possible referendum on the future of if you membership prime minister david cameron is making plans for the renegotiation of britain's ties with brussels and
he wants to use the notoriously pro european foreign office to lead the talks and the risk of infuriating the euro skeptic and pays of his policy however has seen ever pulls the renegotiations alone could be enough to open pandora's box. where does the u.k. stand or want to stab in the e.u. well there are two possible scenarios one it stays in the union with a really good position everybody is happy with or to an outright exit the european union is standing like. the simulated debate or war games organized by the europe is but it taste of how difficult possibly painful any process could be now while the difference is a balance everybody was in agreement. this is across the continent even saying
that it is more of a euro phobia that with real life in britain the wheels have been churning one of the most sensitive topics related to. of immigration pointing out what they say is an exploitation of the british welfare system which brussels says is not backed by any concrete evidence is adamant that it is not cherry picking what it was for renegotiation is essential if not possible exit. britain's just cherry picking it simply isn't the case. that the european union is actually failing on the grounds that it's losing track in the competitive marketplace we've a long tradition of democracy we can't leave people feeling completely. out i think britain is heading towards the exit a key question coming out of that simulation is what exactly does the u.k.
want and as for europe how much is there willing to give to keep the u.k. happy if at all. coming up a look at a breathtaking starnes performance by formed by youngsters and this song is. as we all know the holidays are a great time for families to get together and sometimes on the l. call gets flowing they're also a great time for us to argue about everything from politics to religion with the ones we love but if you happen to be an n.s.a. agent and the government has an official list of talking points that way you could win those family arguments for sure yeah that's right the government is now giving n.s.c. agents lists a very corny talking points going to firedoglake so that way they can convince their relatives over the holidays of just how awesome effective and necessary the
national security agency truly is despite all those little revelation thinks of mass spying by snowden trust me talking points exist for a reason political social and religious organizations and use them so that when their members who may not be the best debaters on the planet can defend the positions of the organization and i would have no problem with the if they gave this list to agents they could answer questions from journalists but when the government wants you to propagandize your friends and family over christmas and thanksgiving it all seems kind of cultish to me that's just my opinion. though. i'm seventeen and i live in the district of st petersburg this is my entrance. fellow. this is my district.
football fields two of my old school and my nine story apartment block. so this is where i live. i used to take drugs and drink like a fish i skipped school and was a real hooligan i stayed out all night and well you know. listen to me like a superstar right you come here sit down and have a chat all right guys i don't know what we can do about this scene it hasn't come together yet and full of holes please let's rehearse the final scene. to my right action.
comes out this play simple we're circus a poorly constructed and we break down stereotypes about kids from disadvantaged backgrounds. it's also a circus is a modern circus stuff by socially disadvantaged kids. at five. to go i did ok thank you my. guys we need to buy cloths. we need to meet all the guests and think about their accommodation like everyone should be comfortable. then we should finish the staging and rehearse it all it's a pity we don't have to be six hours in
a day then we have plenty of time for everything that fills. our words so we're putting on the flying kids festival for the sixth time i thought we needed an event that would stir everyone up a bit of service or something to make people eager to work till midnight painting the building and solving administrative problems across a festival seemed a good idea also it was to see one. life conditions were tough that life was hard because a man's life was worthless murder and violence were considered very good things
have you ever heard the word. so you know what that is they wrote a new one they mad on the role and. you will that will after i had joined my school i was skipping classes for six months. i was dating a girl then and had no desire at all to study i just wanted to go out with her. so i had to repeat a year then i came here i think i'll finish this year and then try to join a circus school. strain your legs. push with your arms. and your but it also works is made up of kids from socially disadvantaged groups of people the self-esteem is usually lower and they don't have any relevant physical skills. i've almost done three.
