city i guess the old for the nationalist russians more and more the representatives of the right wing are clearly coming to power and here we've seen a form of nationalist here as well. now you can see it outside this morning very quickly like i said both sides are now forcing one side was different so i don't know what a tense situation. meanwhile in the capital the interim leadership is finalizing a list of new cabinet ministers and will have to be approved in a few hours time by crowds on independence square and with right wing radicals at the forefront of uprising there are now lining up for the top jobs as are. reports . no but i will. we lead ukraine's and europe's biggest battle you know vibrantly edited clip of the right sector movement of ukraine states its mission and well something that the revolution here ended with the ousting of
10:04 am
president jiang of college its leader dmitry jarosz has a different view. to fortune this is just the beginning ukraine's resurrection europe's resurrection they started our my down. but does this resurrection require the storming of political party offices the torching of politician's houses and the manhunt for journalists on the new governor of the recently the all further awards for the whereabouts of a russian journalist for eight hours you are channel you go through what they call providing false information so you can see where we're heading now which is so that the jewish community in southeastern ukraine thought calm had returned but on tuesday identified the man tried to set the town synagogue ablaze with molotov cocktails the police licitra for masked men started throwing explosives at our synagogue and around eleven pm boutique security tried to catch the perpetrators but they failed yeah. the right sector is the core and the voice of the
10:05 am
uprising but the extent of its involvement in the acts of vandalism and violence walking in ukraine now is hard to verify the attacks are often but a trace if i don't if i can ask the man finding who exactly they represent is difficult the word on the street is that there are several on factions operating under the my gun ban are now raising serious concerns about the rise of extremism just as the symbols of the tragic past resurface on the ukraine streets we witness right now. a very hypocritical approach to politics it's especially by the european union and by the european states they say they fight against extremism inside the european union. they fund extremists and support extremists and outside the european union. despite what is widely seen as a victory over the regime the might done remains intact with that right sector standing firm some of its members may leave independence square soon though

possibly landing jobs in the revamped interior ministry one parliament forms a unity government on thursday alexey worships the auntie gotten from kiev in ukraine. and the prospect of ultra nationalists gaining some of the top jobs is something that should be concerned about and that's what we've been hearing from glen ford a former member of the european parliament. clearly we have to look very carefully this government of national unity we should be trying to bring people together some hard and difficult decisions have to be made to incorporate people from all parts of ukraine in the new government if it's a sectarian government of a very in quotation marks one the recent conflict and this is just a recipe for further problems in the future and with the continued emergence of the far right and with the u.k. government struggling to contain the rise of islamophobia at home some britons are
10:07 am
not making the job any easier a group of activists has started patrolling the streets of east london in armored vehicles claiming they want to protect people from being harassed by radical muslims but some locals fear the campaign is only igniting tensions as sarah first now reports they want to be so obvious all the big girls giving out the christian patrolling there's a knee patrol in town also in the hills of the small but make sure it's muslim patrols a new political group calling themselves britain first have responded by forming what they've dubbed christie and patrols and this patrol comes complete with vehicle proof that bullet proof the whole thing is a t. joins the as they took to the streets in east london where we having full. road why the area. that's we're trying to be happy if it. was to make fun of the group is being described as far right many of the members
10:08 am
a form of b.m.p. or e.t.l. but then we get to differentiate themselves from these groups and insist they don't want to be associated with violence but tactics such as baiting when members stand with big cans to try and lure out the muslim patrols have proven controversial and some members of the group have already faced the rest. no problems for anyone to be. trying. to confront them and think be. intimidating. about this point having a plea condemn the muslim patrols at the time the east london mosque has been singled out by the christian patrol for criticism the mosques say they feel caught in the middle and i worry that the patrol could inflame fragile community relations
10:09 am
our community certainly feels threatened by his antics turning up to any part of the country. is. putting across the street. a strong message what the public needs to understand is that none of these groups represent the mainstream community or wider society out on london streets and well there's not much support to be found here either. first or from the border you shouldn't have a sense of. i'm sorry. to be any. yeah yeah all right thank you very much for that do you think it's all going to be completely peaceful here when i think there are going to be moments where obviously i think there's a potential for trouble there always will be there's nothing we can do to avoid that. yeah just leave these members of the public to be harassed part of shari'a
10:10 am
patrols. patrols have been operating to some fun but that's not what we've been told since a number of arrests last year the muslim patrols have gone to ground it's unclear that patrols are actually still operating that will likely come as some relief to policing community relations workers in this diverse area of london. despite the christian patrol activity the muslim patrols have safe not taken the bait so. the london and coming up a climate of intolerance in the powerhouse council of europe's anti-racism watchdog criticizes germany for sluggish progress in wiping out discrimination more on that after the break.
10:11 am
the comments which we hear from the leaders are ukrainian ready calls they sound like ukrainian sulfates they say ok europe is not the europe which we are dreaming about because the your family values on the mind of the christian values on the mind the gay marriages law and so on and so on and so and so forth it sounds like european telly but only one can exist. right. first right. and i think the church. reformers. instrument.
10:12 am
welcome back you're watching r t international other european parliament has slammed the work of international lenders and admits to multiple flaws in the euro zone bailout program. it's reported myths that financial institutions have failed in their key goal of protecting euro zone members from collapsing the so-called troika lander is also accused of failing to consult national governments and merely giving them ultimatums moreover the report says the troika lacks accountability and transparency and applies a blanket approach to all crisis hit countries are just peter all over reports on the growing discontent with the system their hands on the purse strings of europe's
10:13 am
cash strapped. the confidence in the euro zone's three biggest lenders known as the troika is wavering in terms of public debt in terms of potential growth in terms of unemployment there is. worse now than before the troika intervention in the country like greece made up of the international monetary fund the e.u. and the european central bank the idea behind the troika was to get the most indebted eurozone nations back on an even keel through bailouts and at times crippling austerity measures island became the first to leave the bailout program at the end of last year not before cutting thirty billion euro from the budget and seeing salary squeeze by twenty percent in southern europe in hopes of a light at the end of the tunnel anti especially for the generation growing up in detroit that unemployment is not peculiar to four so we are going to be facing a. a large number of young people i mean in countries like greece or spain
10:14 am
youth unemployment is over fifty percent and these people have little prospect of getting a job and achieving some sort of economic security this is seen european lawmakers call into question the ability of the troika to deal with the scale of the crisis and to attack its methods the troika acts like a acts like a governor. and visits its colonies in the south though here event tells you what to do the measures they come up with are not they're not always very effective the credibility of its economic forecast has caused most unease to keep concerning greece which is received two hundred forty billion euros in loans so far in twenty eleven the troika predicted economic growth in greece of one percent however the reality was a seven percent shrink just a one off you might think then in twenty twelve they predicted two percent growth which ended up as a further four percent downturn those running for election to the european
10:15 am
parliament this year say that the current systems in place for trying to deal with the crippling debts in some parts of the eurozone just aren't working and that a new solution other than the troika will have to be found in the next parliament with some accusing the troika of trying to cover up its mistakes there is quite a bit of propaganda going on right now trying to make people believe that there is an improvement in those southern european countries in fact there's no improvement that i can see because the debt situation is verse than ever the banking crisis is still not resolved. over germany well also in germany a new report from the council of europe's anti-racism watchdog says the country is not doing enough to stamp out discrimination and homophobia it's urged the authorities to take a firmer stance on hate speech are just losing confident has the details. germany has done a good job of luring young people away from the neo nazi sea and the report also
10:16 am
praises the country for a program that lets people applying for jobs anonymously in order to make sure that no one's discriminated for origin but when it comes to battling homophobia and racism the report says that germany simply has a lot more work to do one of the things that are recommends is tougher penalties for crimes against sexual religious or ethnic minorities as well as an overhaul of the way in which germany registers these kinds of incidents because right now there simply is a lack of confidence among victims in the german investigation process as a result many victims of racist or homophobic assaults simply don't report them to the authorities that's a major problem the council of europe also took issue with germany's penal code like the legal system here basically in many european union countries racial motivation for one example is considered as a factor in a crime one passing a sentence well not here in germany over here racial incitement as well as hate speech is only punishable when someone is found to have disturbed at the peace
10:17 am
something which is really quite difficult to prove in a court of law now the council of europe issues these types of reports every five years the recommendations aren't binding and of course it's up to the individual countries to decide what if anything to do about it but the authors of the reporter do say that intolerance is something they see as growing all across europe not just here in germany. now back to one of our top stories a group of far right activists patrolling the streets of east london in armored vehicles amid rising islamophobia across the u.k. we can now cross live and get some reaction from independence party m.p. roger helmer mr allen thank you so much for joining us here in c.n.n. national to discuss the situation with patrols. you know looking at the situation in britain some would argue that these patrols screeched these christian patrols are justified reaction to incidents like the brutal murder of a british soldier lee rigby last year by islamic extremist and aligned and what do
10:18 am
you make of these groups and these protests roles are they actually breaking the law there well we have britain don't like vigilantes we like having a police force which should keep the peace for everyone it's absolutely fundamental that we have one wall that applies to all citizens of the country so there is a real concern first of all with vigilante groups and we've had groups of muslims trying to impose islamic values on people on the street and that is wholly unacceptable. we must have a situation where the same law applies to everybody we cannot have bits of sharia law incorporated into british you'll always see the british society is a very mild to africa one and in trying to appease everyone all sides i mean the government is actually. isolating one group from another but how can he actually make everyone happy. well i think of
10:19 am
a politician had the solution to making everyone happy then he'd be worth a lot of money but the fact is that we must have a society in which everybody is free to express themselves to follow their own beliefs in their own values without seeking to impose those values on other people that is the critical point and people in britain become very upset when small groups start trying to impose what are seen as alien values on the rest of society that cannot be acceptable well you know last year our muslim patrols in london sparked a crackdown by a police what is the attitude towards christian in the u.k. this time around and a different well by concern would be virt we shouldn't need those patrols if we were policing the streets properly and that is the issue we need the police to get a grip we need the streets to be safe for everyone whether they're indigenous or in
10:20 am
the groups whether they're christians or muslims but we must also insist that people do not seek to impose their beliefs on others that is absolutely critical and in your opinion what can the british muslim community do in order to improve their image and to counter islamophobia in a country well i think what they must do if they wish to live in britain is to make some attempt to integrate into british society that doesn't mean abandoning their faith and it doesn't mean abandoning their cultural values but it does mean absolutely condemning terrorist activity disruption and having nothing to do with for example the attempts by some muslim youths to impose islamic values on passers by in the street right now as you can of tennis party m.p. roger helmer at talking to us here on international thank you so much sir for sharing your views with us here my pleasure. and moving on now to venezuela as
10:21 am
a country continues to be plagued by nationwide street protests the u.s. has expelled three of its diplomats this comes after president ordered three american diplomats to leave his country accusing them of inciting the embrace at least fifteen people have been killed and rioting that started two weeks ago with demonstrators demanding that maduro resign over high level of crime and the stagnant economy but some experts believe the roots of the deceit far beyond the country's borders. the united states has opposed. charges for a very long time and so has the conservative government in colombia both governments have in various ways whether it is. being paramilitaries going to going to split up from colombia or also the us government supporting opposition groups with funding and with the public statements that for example kerry recently gave secretary of state kerry which essentially gives. position
10:22 am
a shot in the arm because he. made it there are protests even though it's quite clear that most of the protests are there are being violent and are seeking comment protections with at least a james bond boasted a gun that could fire only when he himself was holding it as we report on our website such a weapon is no longer the stuff with fiction and nationally be bought in america more details for you online r.t. dot com also there today sound francisco gets an unwelcome claim to fame a watchdog reveals the outs of the golden gate bridge saw a record number of suicides over the course of twenty thirty and it's party. and you might sink it's deja vu and you're probably right however the torch has have turned blue this time and the people carrying them have to work even harder to bring the flame to sochi and their predecessors the paralympic the torch relay has
10:23 am
begun in style as reports. well the only how we can have to get to the torch from the far as far as the far east of russia to where the paralympic games are going to take place and that of course is inside cheek and they will have to cover the length and breadth of the entire country forty five cities more than fifteen hundred people are going to be involved and still we're going to be we're going to be seeing rather impressive displays off emotional physical and of course human in durance when we're going to be looking at people with disabilities perform in some of the most amazing sports in sochi but because they have such a short period of time to do this the organizers decided that torch release will be happening soon will tenuously in several cities at the same time so so on wednesday it was the far eastern cities that have started but the real late and by the end of next week we're going to be seeing the paralympic torch lit up in sochi russia
10:24 am
actually has traditionally performed rather well and paralympics in fact they came in second during the vancouver winter games and of course they are hoping that the russian athletes and paralympics will be able to perform that feat during the paralympic games in sochi as well so as we've just heard a team russia is no stranger to winter paralympic glory eight years ago into the top of the overall tally with thirteen golds and last time in vancouver russia was just one gold medal short of finishing first and now with a home soil advantage as no doubt they'll be giving it everything they've got in their chase for victory by working out the international and coming right up some straight talking on the world's most troubling issues in so fickle but if you are watching us in the u.k. for perry to go on the ground with a few. trend

welcome to sophia mcclellan sophie shevardnadze ukraine's age old split between east and west is flaring up again the french outpost revolution unity is on the balance what will it take for the people of ukraine to find a middle way and what does all this mean for russia ukraine's closest neighbor today were as we have michaela the chief foreign affairs committee of the upper house of russia's parliament. the fires in jeeves independence square have been extinguished but the barricades are still. following days of bloodshed the opposition is celebrating. but tell the people of
10:29 am
ukraine they were hoping for is this the end of the struggle for power or just the beginning. become a carer for head of the four and a committee affairs committee in russian federation council it's really great to have in our program today thank you for having his so many things going on in ukraine right now talk all over the world now in your view what has taken place is it a coup or of revolution. well you know as an airbus as an oriental list unfortunately i draw many parallels with what is happening in ukraine with what is called the arab spring it started as a revolution it started as a protest of people who were deceived by mr unocal the and his party the party of the regions. misty in the call that you and his party were at the time of the agreement between ukraine and the european union for almost two years they were promoting this idea explaining that it is the best way of development for ukraine
10:30 am
and ukrainian people and then they turned in the opposite direction overnight and did not explain anything to the people of ukraine so people were outraged they went out to the streets and again the government missed unocal which were not able to talk to the people. so after that the peaceful protest was handed by the extremists like it happened in tunisia for example or like it happened in egypt when. the revolutions were made by western oriented people who are thinking about the more than a zation of our cake societies but as a result of the elections the islamist forces won here the similar picture it all started like a peaceful protest and then the extremists the warlords the field commanders.
