a week left to win medals russia's fifth in the overall count but has high hopes for its hockey team which delighted local finals last night russia beat slavonic a in the qualifiers which often find some tonic following the big defeat suffered against team usa on saturday victory was hard for but it needed a tense shootout to split the science with neither managing to score an open play russia squeezed through one to nothing and now faces a multi when most would rather match against norway to reach a quarter finals richard oppel flayed describes that performance where the man has previously given the russian fans the joy of celebrating olympic success. i'm delighted to be joined by a ice hockey legend and a two time olympian so pablo you've appeared to olympics so how much pressure obvious russians are specially playing in a home olympics in your opinion or yours or lip or russian team as well as where
7:06 am
there are lots of pressure this everybody expects we're going to do well. you know but it will also experience to play them different kind of levels you know they can handle the pressure i want to be made of a russian style so far i mean obviously loss of a stage in a shootout very close game just struggle pass back you want to nothing again in the shootout beats slovenia but he made a play for the same. i have to say you know we have to learn from the mistakes and move forward because there's still four more games as they go in there or at school about the limpid system you know like even though this year you know you can lose a three games and they're all in still if they still get a chance to win the world. in two thousand and six russia got a great start of unfound finland in the semifinals and got knocked out i mean so it's a marathon not a sprint it is you know it's unpredictable less the libby gives something to go over even though it can i didn't do well in the beginning and i want to go for will
7:07 am
say we're going to have just a few questions from our facebook users of this question what's more important getting experience in the n.h.l. all the places playing collectively in russia to help the russian team in general what's happened in the soviet union for instance things locally different because in the chilean put you play for the club here a way for the contras is a different kind of right but also this from to me how to serve who is your chief childhood hero when you were growing up. well they had so many players to choose from you know obviously old the guys who used to play in the soviet union you know cheer initial team. really like the one greats this question from ross fraser well he's someone who's new to the sport of ice hockey so what makes someone. talking such grace for someone of the biggest force in the world in your opinion. because we've got it all you know it's. it's really exciting to watch the five games you know it's a great spirit part that's flying around you know and you can hear the each other
7:08 am
so it's a cinch to get. obviously you play the first lympics and i'm going to a nine hundred ninety eight obviously you did once upon a much earlier on how crucial are you know any players to be limping movement in hockey because there's talk obviously of maybe n.h.l. players not playing in four years time when they when no one's going to happen in the future for as you said when they can they need them the first time you were in the child stop the season for couple weeks and with all the bills this players in the world were disappeared for the tournament and it was a conference or was it this week i gave i was probably a legendary ice hockey player and we cannot cross start our correspondent andrew farmer who's in a very forty rosa khutor at the moment that's right thanks richard the weather being the talking points at the moment here upping piano has seen the cancellation for the third time as the men's mass starts in the biathlon that will now take place tomorrow along with the men's snowboard cross but the good news is that the bob sleigh will go ahead as planned the two man russian team currently lead out

through a border and alexander super because they actually set a course record yesterday during the first two runs and they have two final runs tonight and they told us what is needed to get that goal. i think the critical juncture will be at the start line if one team gets far ahead of the others it will be very difficult to catch up with them but we're prepared for such a scenario but our number one objective is to be stronger at the start next the piloting skills kick in he need to see where you can outmaneuver your rivals you have to do for perfectly successful runs in a row to overcome your opponents. whether done to perfect ones have a nice day let's hope to see more meanwhile the. jim i can see who are making their first appearance in this event for just over a decade. lost in a moment but they did receive the second biggest cheers the night after the russians elsewhere attention is again on russian figure skaters this time in the ice dance not because it unique and. currently in third place with just the free
7:10 am
dance to come tonight we caught up with them before these games began and they told us what they thought they needed to do to achieve success i think is going to be their mental appropriation and then what's important thing before the olympics because there's so much topic talking so much people who was to help or who don't want to help and you need to just do your work do your work and do what you want or do what you need to. listen to the people like so many people just listen for your team like you're preparing and they know what to do so i hope it's going to work here they are definitely focused i do like have to say the ice dancing is a bit like ballroom dancing on ice very therapeutic to watch but you can be rest assured the russians will be busting a gut inside to try and catch the canadians virtue and moir and the americans davis and white you currently lead the charge for gold. and her from about reporting from the mountain cluster people for more than two hundred countries are watching big

welcome back to aussie international senior security officials in the u.k. estimates more than two hundred british based or hardest who went to find the regime of bashar al assad in syria have returned home and now pose a significant terrorist threat south fast takes up the story. it's causing huge concern here amongst the security services the police have said that they've made a number of arrests and they're monitoring the situation closely indeed ingenue it's thought that sixteen arrests have been made of people having returned back the irony here of course is that the british governments want the assad regime to go they've been pushing the transition and they've been supplying non-lethal aid to the rebels technically they are of the same size as the jihadists who are fighting
7:19 am
the assad regime and the british fighters who have joined the jihad is the concern the courses that the five terrorist groups the isis. the british citizens that are joining these the real worry is that obviously was there fighting with the again these skills they're becoming indoctrinated and the real worry is that once the fights in syria they finish fighting there they could return home and then the target could become. europe is pushing for its own internat free from american monitoring the movement spearheaded by german chancellor angela merkel who said to seek backing from the french president later this week she proposed to change the current set up under which a huge volume of internet data circulates along the same rootless routes offered by the united states so a message sent by one european online user to another can potentially have
7:20 am
a very long journey before reaching its destination passing through multiple points and e.u. communications network would allow data to bypass the established route and reportedly offer european web users better protection let's not discuss this proposal will find the iranian hard a member of the german private party fabio do you think do you see this proposal going through. well i think that america doesn't really. believe a plan. it doesn't seem that the conservative party is concerned with protection of the data of citizens at all they haven't be behaved in this manner in the last year or so it's not really believable that this is behind it it seems to be a point of pressure. put forward to the united states. but it's unclear what the actual purpose of this idea is to edit flooded also said the n.s.a.
7:21 am
grows a wedding from a chemise does the proposal they propose idea offer enough protection from the n.s.a. and the surveillance was the idea of a european internet is extremely dangerous it might be possible to build a european internet but not in a very short amount of time it would be it would take a long amount of time in in the end this could lead. to a. literal internet in the internet as we know it and as it was planned as it is used today would not exist anymore we would have a maybe a european internet we would have a united states internet russian internet chinese internet something with a b. already have and this is very dangerous it would have unforseen consequences and it would stop the internet that we have today from being good. so this is nothing that
7:22 am
we want to see in existence but still edward snowden claimed a number of european intelligence agencies do work together that would the n.s.a. and talking again about the proposed idea if this idea gets a green light how would that affect the collaboration between them. i think that the idea of european internet wouldn't affect the problems that we see with the n.s.a. and with the five us alliance with other secret services spying on the on its own citizens and on and on other citizens that it wouldn't have at all. we have the problem that secret services around the world are collaborating with each other of aiding citizens collaborating collecting data or exchanging data or having huge amounts of data are saved in. the to build national or
7:23 am
regional internet wouldn't have the problem the problem has to be soft on the political level it's a political problem there we have to talk about it and if. would really want to solve this problem and would really care about the data protection of their citizens then she could for example. talk to the united states about the stop of the free trade agreement that is being debated right now this is something that could put pressure on the united sates and this is something that would give us a position where we can start a diplomatic international process but to talk about the regional internet is something that is really dumb and really doesn't solve any problems might sound like a solution to people that have never really got into the matter any deeper. ryan live from berlin fabio thank you very much indeed for your time thing our string of

apparent signs has trying to be financial wild with five senior banking executives taking their lives in one week. investigate. there are untimely deaths grab headlines three of which happened within a week be it the big investment banks they worked for the senior positions they held the public nature of their deaths or all three once again it raised questions . about an industry largely blamed for bringing the global economy to its knees and a two thousand and eight financial crisis michael taylor a former goldman sachs bond salesman who calls himself a recovering banker knew this world well it's so extraordinarily competitive and so focused profit above all and so transactional that every moment like pressure turns carbon into diamonds you know extreme pressure can both accelerate human
7:25 am
achievement and some cases break people the pressure and calling the shots the form of banking we've got at the moment has no interest in the people it affects. because in a sense and legally responsible to invest and stockholders you make a moral decisions without thinking about the impact that it has on the people the job losses people losing their home and so on and so forth pressure to rake in profits or the pressure to put in more hours than your peers after the spate of recent deaths big firms did try to ease tension by telling their junior staff to take more time off or at least to try not to work on weekends it's kind of a disconnect between what they have the weekend off will also make us a ton of money and ultimately making a ton of money is what's going to keep you around so now you strike me as a real solution you're a sly and spent a year demystifying bankers interviewing dozens of fine us workers on the condition of anonymity the degree to which bankers are trapped. has been really
7:26 am
a really important finding i think we keep on projecting his idea on bankers as masters of the universe they have everything we want but if you look at their actual life they can be fired in five minutes this is a deeply dysfunctional and utterly abusive system so there is this real taboo in banking like the army to own up to one former ability. does or so your r.t. london. coming up next how big drug companies are being accused of creating illnesses to boost the sales of the pills they may state.
7:27 am
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 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
