8:02 pm
the match. was a victory for russia but perhaps not in the style of the fashion that they all their fans would have hoped for they were made to work hard and pushed all the way by a stubborn and resilience slovakia it was nil nil at the end of regulation time and not even overtime could separate the two sides so for the second day in a row russia faced the lottery of a penalty shoot out but this time they were victorious it's actually american who finish top of group a they saw after a five one victory over slovenia however many observers are saying that the match between the usa and russia on saturday was one of the most thrilling in the history of the winter olympics and we do have the prospect of the two sides possibly going head to head later in the competition in a medal match and former russia star you know who enjoyed a successful career in the n.h.l. believes ice hockey gold is the one the russian public want more than any other hockey is the main event like the no i don't care what anybody said about people skating or go all the respect and others for is about hockey because you got so
8:03 pm
many superstars to play in the play you get to show others here it's not every time you can see. talk to us around the wall playing it's like i want a cup of soccer and the players to come and play and to be proud for the country so i think it's a make i was kind of historic events igor larionov and artie's pasco up there and despite the sort of pride players feel representing their country that you got talked about just than hockey wouldn't be hockey without a little controversy there's been some dispute over the decision to disallow what would have been a winning goal for russia against the u.s. russian hockey commentator sergei crabb who told my colleague kevin owen that the wise thing would be to simply update the rules. the goal was disallowed because do you believe the good the next was moved it was disloyal for our mates moorings and the goalie who is moving from one side to another side and he does it he moves the posts he puts it in this case i think it was one hundred percent unintentional on
8:04 pm
the side of four johnson a quick because he was just moving from one side in order to another side and the situation was not very dangerous terms of the goal it was just luck that there was an american refereeing this much and was it was a should that be thought of now in the future reassess i think probably years just to avoid controversies like this probably it will be just that wise to take the decision and said no not not to have. referees from one country just to working on the games ways of the national team games have seen their fair share of weather troubles after the men's mass start bath lawn had to be postponed due to severe fog that's after some deemed the conditions of in sochi being too too sunny and challenging for the athletes just a few days ago those taking part in the women's super g. skiing suffered some misfortune seven of the first eight skiers failed to finish
8:05 pm
the event with some blaming the snow for the bad luck r.t. has been gauging the reaction from the athletes themselves about the conditions and saatchi. coming into this event you know we know such as a little bit warmer we know the pipe conditions can be a little bit bearable we travel all around the world and we ski different so you know as a professional athlete you turn up to a hospital and you just have to adjust to it for me was perfect i love this slushy snow when i stopped outside so i'm nothing to complain about the thing to do no good job so i'm happy to ski instead she says no and so i'm definitely impressed with what the russian did everything is flawless the the athletes are taking very good care of it and i think that's all that matters for the games great thing is so close it feels like just a big family every weekend before you come over and are not really sure what to expect and. you know everything's been great so far whether it's been you know the
8:06 pm
food or their commendations or their rooms or you know the village. would be. unbelievable just looking at it from the outside and going in and practicing on and successful it just takes a careful preparation always key to making a huge event like this go like clockwork language was another hurdle faced by the organizers who had to ensure security staff and volunteers had enough skills to support the host cities guests simon dunton from the english first language school helped or workers in the run up to the games and share the details with us we were looking for people all the local organizing committee were looking for intermediate level users but we found that some of the speakers were excellent they had really high quality english and some native almost level we designed this winter games english online so they could be really precise about the english they might need for example if they were going to be involved with hope's label stealing all the words that even i as an aide to speak and the teacher didn't know we really went for and we said look guys you really need to small this is going to be great here
8:07 pm
and i think it's working if you go out there. and you go to the security they really really really are enjoying themselves and they're smiling and getting involved. you can stay up to date on all the olympic action by heading to our website r.t. dot com and follow us on twitter to find out the latest news and reaction from a favorite sports course there you can find the read tweets of all of your favorite athletes and even tell them what you thought of their performance out there russia's ice hockey team captain has tweeted his appreciation to the many fans who have shown their support throughout we'll of course be bringing you all the latest news from saatchi here on r.t. dot com. the g. twenty four team fall asleep goaltimate in the exhilarating winter in our. store and you see no way i'm a clever though and i'm the worst of all the hate news teams for sochi twenty four take. on. german chancellor angela merkel is proposing to
8:08 pm
break up the world wide web by creating a pen european network seans to prevent snooping from across the atlantic the move comes after revelations from edward snowden showed that europe has long been a target for u.s. intelligence or to see catherine off reports. the german chancellor is interested in effectively building up a european communication network to avoid e-mails and other data passing through the united states now it's not a separate internet so to speak but more of a way to prevent e-mails and other data from being harvested by u.s. intelligence agencies now this is just an idea at this point and it is one that angle of merkel will certainly be discussing with the french president when they meet in france on wednesday merkel said also this weekend that she basically just approved of companies like google and facebook basing their operations in countries with low levels of data protection while being active in countries such as germany where data protection is quite high this is been
8:09 pm
a very sensitive issue here in germany mr merkel has faced sharp criticism in the wake of the n.s.a. spy scandal for basically failing to take decisive action according to her critics to protect german users from surveillance of internet telecommunications traffic that's alleged to have been conducted by u.s. and british intelligence services it's also of course a personal issue for her to some extent remember that miss merkel's cell phone was reportedly monitored but this idea of all mine traffic effectively bypassing the united states isn't unique to europe in fact brazil along with several international partners is also currently in the process of trying to build an undersea fiber optics communications cable that would do just that it would basically reroute its online traffic directly to europe skipping essentially the u.s. and it's more than just my deah it's a one hundred eighty five million dollars project construction on which is slated to begin in july and of course in brazil that also does tie back to revelations
8:10 pm
that washington had been aggressively spying on brazilian officials including the president since those leaks have been made public brazil has made internet security and communications a priority so not just to europe they're trying to find ways to to effectively bypass the united states. whether or not those proposals will really amount to any sort of concrete construction or policy changes here in europe of course as a matter of time. benjamin sontag a co-founder of the civil liberties group la quite a character in net believes germany should end any collaboration with the n.s.a. if it wants to protect it said a sentence we can see that they're just. g.c.s.e. or does your i in front of the services there are color breaching he really was doing to say they are listening to old conversations if we create a network specific network in europe it will only be in the trade that will be listened to by those services again this is really
8:11 pm
a political stance and not something that won't to protect the european cities and communications the only solution conceive of mismeasure one to protect the communications of european citizens would be to ask for less corroboration we send they say from their own services and ask their services to protect our citizens and to project companies in europe from these. things more news for you after a short break. the . surveyor feeling that the location of. the river. to the

8:22 pm
case. the. my client's repeated requests to the authorities to have medical treatment provided. have not come to. fruition is a big question for me so as you said he's going to be going through some medical tests here very shortly but how how much does this actually satisfy your complaints that this process has taken so long at this point again we would like to have addressed immediately and without. any further delays those. heart condition because that could potentially lead to very drastic results quickly we don't ask you were there is tunick illness of which
8:23 pm
you've been in touch with the prison authorities or are they explaining the situation to you. well what they have said is that here ocean co never officially filed a complaint with them to the effect that he has any kind of heart problems while my client stated to me today that this was actually in that curates he has written a number of requests to. the prison councilors to have. hearts condition evaluated. so as to and all of the speculations we have taken the initiative today to draft a request to the prison staff to have those heart condition assessed immediately and. a request to do that the fact was in fact signed by my client today and i imagine will be tendered to responsible officials at the prison either

i just first state of the city address new york mayor bill de blasio said that he would put forward legislation for the city to issue special municipal identification cards to undocumented immigrants he summed up his feelings by saying to all my fellow new yorkers who are undocumented i say new york city is your home too and we will not force any of our residents to live their lives in the shadows yeah that sounds nice but the reason these illegal immigrants live their lives in the shadows is because they immigrated illegally why should new yorkers bend over backwards for illegal criminal immigrants this is the same logic that if i catch a guy breaking into my house as a gracious host i should offer him a pizza because it's his home too this is not just a slap in the face to rule of law but also to the immigrants who do go through the
8:26 pm
bureaucracy and headaches to become u.s. citizens the right way the legal way so the blasio if you're going to provide these illegal immigrants with some sort of document it should be a plane ticket back home with instructions on how to apply for a green card the legit proper way just like everyone else has to fashion just my opinion. i marinate join me. in park and. carry on for this and much much. only on the bus and.
