pm received information that military hardware has arrived and i was a local train station we went there and so a.p.c.'s milch of the troops the whole town gather nearby the soldiers trying to start moving and the people trying to stop the vehicles this still just twisted the arms of pensioners there were two young men standing there and they drove right over their feet i was pulled back by the local miners when i tried to stop the vehicles they didn't even look at who was in front of them the man started shouting for them to stop saying there were girls and women in front of them but they didn't care and it's not just military hardware more personnel are being deployed as well here's a video of anti-government protesters stopping abbas transporting ukrainian soldiers straight into done yet all those hours to can see that on the storming of the local administration building is imminent especially given that activists who have occupied it since the weekend say they are not leaving parties where if an
5:03 am
option i spoke to some of the people inside the building to ask exactly what it is they want. we're now inside what used to be the donetsk original ministration hand which has become recently leave and to hear the protests this is where those who did not recognize the country's new authorities gather had and this is from where they declared the creation of the nets people's independent republic this republic has its own forces aimed as for tactics that they're marked man but we can see here and there they're mostly formed from civil volunteers but there are also police and army defectors among them i must say we descend model land from the fascist army that's going to kill us where for a referendum for being independent from kiev and being with russia. we can see here in their mold of cult tales for example people say they will do their best to avoid any violence but if they raise it by this against them they will be forced to use
5:04 am
these things this is also what happened in their original capital all the people say here that they fear the reaper to flee scenario police and police and the very fall into a whole governmental visiting stake in earlier by similar groups all for protestors detaining the least seventy of them i only have a stick to defend myself becoming own would machine guns annoy had yesterday for example was a chair leg then this is a very large ship ukraine industrial capital around one million people live here while the these regions is home to the tenth of the country's population and today they still think the wrong route cresent it is of almost old mage's cities and towns all over the place region basically mine workers and employees of the region's numerous factories and enterprises and each region. who are in base and eleven story building on the civil law he will protest against
5:05 am
gives nationalism we are for social justice the creation of a republic means drastic changes in the way our territories organized we are forty quality of languages we are against the oppression of the majority by the nationalist minority and against threatening ethnic russians we don't consider naziism to be normal then you go to the separatists there's been that's greediness sense about four hundred seventy million dollars to kiev and less than one hundred fifty million returns all the mines and enterprises in the nets are prosperous. in the minutemen tamil and in the decision is in mind that he going to be declared the solution is to this is what every deputy of people's cowsill is provide. i did it with the new republic then as people's independent republic has its own legal budget with both executive and legislation functions and there are sixty deputies at least so far for these body and most of them are now gathered behind these doors
5:06 am
for an emergency session within the next month newly titian's will have to decide what questions to an escort agency residents who have to answer at the referendum before ukraine's presidential elections and name them what to decide what's country they want to meet. you know if national team on don't ask you rain also a large part of the population in donetsk dislikes the self-proclaimed both already but does not necessarily support the occupation of local government buildings as some told us here at r.t. more yup what you see but i pull separatism and i'm against it in your screeching joining the russian federation if i believe that in your screeching this is part of ukraine and has to be in ukraine i would certainly ask the people that have seized the administration building to leave i do not lie the cuban government believes we need to bite the bullet and wait until normal legitimate elections and then walked
5:07 am
off towards the confrontation has been unfolding not only on the ground but certainly in the media as well what appears to be an exaggeration of basic facts has led to some very questionable reporting i spoke about a bit earlier with r.t. as you go to prison off. both found some interesting stuff since ukrainian media is just a lot it with all sorts of controversial reports related to russia and information is often being shared and reported even though some of it is either complete or hoax altogether some of this is fake is new york or instance this picture was published by several media outlets shows alleged empty shelves in a grocery store in crimea but the price tag is in u.s. dollars in dollars turns out that this picture was taken over in a grocery store but in new york as it was getting rid of expired products now a list picture of a ledge to crimean refugees looks very familiar i mean well this is the do seem
5:08 am
like refugees but the same picture was used by another ukrainian media outlet earlier doing a report on syria refugees seven hundred thousand but my personal favorite is this one this is a story about identification alleged the russian spy caught red handed in ukraine and this idea is sort of like the main proof presented by the media it has lots of grammar mistakes it's in russian but the best thing is that here there's occupation and just says what does it say in russian what i said as it should be a spy so that's not very discreet as i would have real i have an idea that's. not a very good it's pathetic but also i found an interesting video of ukrainian station preparing to do a live report from an alleged bromide done for a western rally in crimea and here is the reporter and it seems from in their frame there's a lot of people around the journalist but then the camera pans to the right there and you can see there's only like ten fifteen people there but it's the later this
5:09 am
is. also is in a vision and he appears to be directing the crowd either to make some noise or to keep quiet so this again raises questions about how correct this information is so there's tons of it out there but surely facts have to be checked. russia's arena. occasion with crimea is illegal and everything carried out by the current author already using kiev is legitimate well that in a nutshell basically sums up a resolution approved by the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe and documents some of labeled as one sided at best it are all over investigates despite the strongly worded rhetoric used in the resolution put forward by the council of europe russia maintains that some of which is being put across is fact is in reality far from the truth yes but it's purely a geopolitical stance everything that the kiev authorities do is right everything that russia suggests is wrong and every fact has been turned upside down but let's
5:10 am
see what the resolution actually states. the unprecedented escalation of violence was largely the result of the increasingly hard handed approach of the authorities but when you look at the facts a number of videos have been the showing police retreating instead of cracking down on rioters as well as themselves fall in victim to harsha turks. the assembly strongly condemns the use of snipers and live ammunition against protesters by the ukrainian authorities at that time but at the same time the resolution seems to contradict itself it is important that these investigations are impartial and free from political motivation or any desire for retribution. this is a geisha group shooting pool of representatives from russia in other countries and
5:11 am
it should be monitored by the international community can occur and governmental commission be trusted if there's a possibility that they were involved in the massacre and ordered the snipers to fire at both sides now it can't be trusted. all this without any mention of the use of weapons by those supporting the overthrow and yanick overtures government. there was no ultra right wing takeover of the central government in kiev law is there any imminent threat to the rights of the ethnic russian minority in the country despite even the casual observer in central kiev struggling to avoid the fighters of the group right sector while five members of the current cabinets in office of from a renowned right wing party. the assembly regrets that the democratic changes in political developments in ukraine have been overshadowed by
5:12 am
the developments in crimea the assembly strongly condemns the russian military aggression third comparing how change came in kiev in crimea one with scenes of violence in numerous victims and the other with peaceful release tension celebration. thursday looks set for the sanctions imposed upon moscow and even these have fallen short of an expulsion from pace a temporary ban on voting rights looks set to be on the cards peter all over r.t. and this news just in the russian delegation to pace says it will not take part in a discussion over its participation in assembly sessions or the parliament set to debate a resolution on depriving russia or a voting rights until the end of the year more details on this a bit later in the program on r.t. international for the meantime though still to come on
5:13 am
a boy talking to the official who proposed stripping rusher of its voting rights of the council of europe or asking the official whether or not he's being fair. are we talking about punishing russia teaching russia lassen well i think we should have the possibility to send a strong signal to the russian government and also say to the russian government this has consequences you have the possibility of still have a dialogue with us but we have to take away your voting rights so that we perhaps in my view i hope so anyway and have engaged in dialogue with the russian to what i can understand you mentioned the word democracy here and that promoting democracy is obviously one of the goals of both the council of europe and the pace if you indeed stand on the principles of democracy and the rule of law i wonder why haven't you introduced a similar bill for ukraine you have interim government right now in ukraine and have called for elections in very short time actually and i think that's the best
5:14 am
approach. because a report on the rest of the world's top headlines after a short break. your friend post a photo from a vacation you can't. be different. the boss repeats the same old joke of course. your ex-girlfriend still in poetry keep. ignoring. your facebook. that was something like this. and there are weapons of the world. no more there.
5:15 am
signifying nothing love. this is. an afghan girl is severely injured by a grenade left off. he's being given a prosthetic arm off being taken to america for treatment but now she's being sent back home right to the place where her life was forever changed by conflict she can do nothing to prevent also a conflict the life of her brother. is following her story. this seven year old
5:16 am
afghan girl was brought to the u.s. for medical treatment almost a year after she was injured in a blast at home her village had been a cauldron of violence is the u.s. invasion of afghanistan one morning she went outside to play with her brother the night before there was a violent battle between taliban fighters and u.s. military forces nothing residents there weren't used to she picked up what looked like was a rock but actually it was a grenade hit it on the floor and it exploded the explosion killed brother it destroyed her right eye and she lost most of her right arm the u.s. nonprofit the children of poor foundation brought should be to a hospital in los angeles where she received a prosthetic arm. so many children like i said she's a fortunate one who came here there's so many more children that need this kind of treatment many were victims of roadside bombs or were caught in the crossfire of fun going insurgent battles u.s.
5:17 am
drone strikes are causing an increasing number of civilian casualties charity organizations can hardly keep up with helping those who have suffered from the war the united states should not be in afghanistan nation building or anything else and our track record suggests that we aren't competent to do this and it isn't exactly appreciated by people who see us bombing property destroying lives and then coming in and building a new school should be has enjoyed her time in l.a. she was invited to a gallery in beverly hills to paint with her prosthetic arm she showed quite a bit of talent with colors apparently chubby is that going home to afghanistan where every day millions of parents live in fear that their children might pick up a grenade thinking it's just the rock in washington i'm going to check on our take should be story is just one of the tragedies that have become an every day riyadh. for many in afghanistan since the western led occupation code in the middle of
5:18 am
battles hit by u.s. led airstrikes targeted by suicide bombers just last year more than five hundred children were killed in the violence in total the conflict has cost an estimated twenty seven thousand civilian lives colonist khan hallinan from the foreign policy and focus institute he believes u.s. troops have failed to protect the innocent because simply that was never their mission it's an error to look at the role that this point of the u.s. in afghanistan and also of the of the pressure by the u.s. to maintain military forces in afghanistan it's a question of security and it has more to do with the fact that the u.s. wants a military footprint on the border of both pakistan and iran afghanistan was never secure even when there were one hundred thousand u.s. troops well now there are thirty thousand u.s. troops so the the loss of the u.s.
5:19 am
troops i don't think will make a major difference in terms of it in terms of the security i think most people in the countryside are which is rather the war be over. u.s. troops are not protecting those people in any case. just a few clicks away on the website for you this lifesaver in case of a nuclear get an israeli company has developed a body belt that companies are vital organs protecting them from the worst effects of radiation find out why. also that truly rubbish shot employees at a high end of hong kong hotel throw out a painting into the rubbish but it's only worth a cool three point seven million dollars. to try to. people are going to. feel like.
5:20 am
it's a sure thing every minute. let me know . oh well. my old life but he. says it's still. sometimes for nothing. this season and it's still. just he still can still be shot if he sees the state of the eight look easy. but he was still a. little . thanks for joining us here today a car bomb has exploded outside the bank of greece and athens causing damage to
5:21 am
nearby buildings there were no reports of any casualties and anonymous caller allegedly warned a local newspaper of the planned attack if the incident came just a day before the german chancellor angela merkel is due to arrive in greece to discuss further austerity measures also follows wednesday's strike and protested budget cuts and layoffs in the public sector which have been demanded by foreign creditors and punish justice are terrorists a sociology lecturer who took part in the demonstrations he believes people's desperation is at a boiling point. we have been turned into a society with. every day life is getting even worse and there's only way is the possibility of extremism at the same time that the greek government is trying to bridge that to present an image today that is it is entering it's getting back into the markets in reality it's the exact opposite the costs rick society has paid and the cost greek society is going to pay for this return to the markets it's huge and
5:22 am
this can explain this contrast the government celebrating the return to the markets and at the same time a major strike a general strike and thousands of people in the streets and the reality is the people in the streets and the people in manger the people in despair all over us that's a bridge society artist snapshot of some of the international headlines quickly fresh fighting between rival muslim and christian militias in the central african republic leaving thirty dead most of the casualties civilians hit by stray bullets are the first peacekeepers from a european union force arrived in the country to help over seventy thousand french and african soldiers that the months of sectarian tensions in the central african republic have left thousands of people dead. a knife wielding teenager has injured up to twenty six people that a high school in the u.s. city of pittsburgh four of the wounded are reported to be in a critical condition police are now investigating whether the assailant had mental
5:23 am
health problems the suspect will be prosecuted as an adult is facing a number of charges including that of murder. also in the u.s. slammed into a child care center in orlando florida one girl died in hospital fourteen others were injured a surfer remaining in a critical condition the search is now on for the male driver who fled the scene. young people in london are moving into unused commercial properties to act as guardians are all in return for cheap rent they're being driven to extremes because the british capital is now the world's second most expensive city to rent in even the mayor of london's basic salary wouldn't be enough to live in certain parts of the city prices have been increasing steadily for the past five years much faster
5:24 am
than inflation so workers are looking for alternatives as i found out when she visited a gym that's now a bunch of flats. oodles of space in the center of the capital for a fraction of the average london rent. i. think. so occupation area property guardians are taking up residence in commercial buildings to keep them supported free to get five old hoss senior guys in here sometimes if we're in our pajamas they get a bit of a shock because they're expecting it to be an office or her studio and they see us cooking eggs and bacon in the morning edward says in his line of what paying four hundred and fifty pounds a month is a godsend the main reason for me is is the price of the rent. free launched the director so work is irregular and not always incredibly well paid.
5:25 am
so it's very difficult for me to afford rent in london property guardianship started mushrooming after a change in the law the government decided to criminalize squatting in residential property but they left out squatting in commercial property so commercial property owners are not surprisingly very concerned that this will effectively deflect squatters into their buildings they want to find ways of protecting against that you know hence the state's idea read off a business based around commercial property gold fields and with no shortage of london is willing to live in warehouses offices and disused church as the applications are streaming in we have trainee doctors we have trainee lawyers accountants nurses people who work for the b.b.c. . they're all young professionals in good jobs who just climbing the ladder don't want to spend eighty percent of their milk you salary on road as living in london
5:26 am
is very very expensive the only snag tenants have to be ready to move with just two weeks notice and there's no pets no children. smoking and crucially you know a lot of parties. which is a shame when you live in such an amazing building your job is to look after the building and make sure stay safe and make sure that you don't get complaints from the neighbors well this was once a done studio you can see it's got mary's going right across the river but it's now used as a lounge area by the guardians and through this purple let colored only have what used to be the gyms changing rooms say with one two three four five shower cubicles for the guardians to choose from and three toilets is that it doesn't feel like a residential prophets say yeah i have to go down full flights of stairs to get to the showers but you know it gets my heart beating in the morning and a bit of exercise so that's fine for now i see myself living as a guardian for
5:27 am
a long time i'm very happy i'm living with a large group of ten of my best friends and. i've got a full rent and i'm living in the center of london say for me it's the dream at the moment. and despite the clocks it's a dream that many people in london is eager to tap into. azzi london. and it's a pleasure having you with us or not so you know coming up just around the corner you're a slave bound and gagged by the money makers of the world. them out to dry the kaiser report coming your way next. for those who believe in heaven is a place of perfection where all the evils of our world war famine and racism vanish
5:28 am
if there is an afterlife we all hope that in that we will all finally be equals but that is our spirits so the arts. corpses will still be very much so segregated especially at a new cemetery in germany you probably think oh some neo nazi group wants to have their own cemetery away from those meddling turkish immigrants but no it isn't all lisbon graveyard according to time magazine yes a four hundred square meter chunk of lutheran burial plots has been set aside for homosexual women by a group of elderly lesbians called the sophia association let's take a big deep breath and think about this why in our modern age do we need to divide corpses by their former sexual preference if a few go for a straight person and a homo sexual person happen on the same day at the same graveyard will the universe expanded or something also are l.g.b. to groups fighting for acceptance and equality soul why are you advocating post-mortem segregation yet the saffir association i guess has the right to do this but is an idea that is an amazing combination of stupid pointless and hypocritical
5:29 am
all the same time let's leave dumb segregation for the mortal world please but that's just my opinion. well. it's technology innovations all the developments around russia we've got the future are covered. welcome to the kaiser report i max kaiser. you know those famous lines from shakespeare they went something like this empires are by walking shadows poor players obstruct and fret their weapons upon the world stage and then are heard no more their tall tales told by neo con idiots full of sound and fury signifying
5:30 am
nothing. that reminds me of today yes most of the headlines we cover here on the kaiser report are about the end of empire and each empire fades into history and i think we're seeing that and you know the first seven i think signifies quite a lot and yet nothing about the end of empire why young people aren't rising up our readers respond this is from the guardian and the readers explain why austerity and unemployment are no longer driving young people onto the streets in protest the first one london roots says no obvious route to lasting change all the means of group cohesion enjoyed by previous generations have ceased to exist there is no left wing party there are no unions there is no obvious route to making lasting change you know saw that story and talking about different reasons why the youth are not rising and they talked about the fact that the ability for the government
5:31 am
to tag people and to put them into a permanent database of black listing that they would screw up all their travel plans in the future the fact that there's no clear cut political leaders to rally behind there's like three or four reasons why they are numerated while this generation even though they're the most oppressed generation in decades i mean the generation that rose up during the poll tax is nowhere near as oppressed generally so that first one they're talking about that there's no group cohesion where all atomized were a financial transaction where derivative for some banker somewhere the next one is peaceful protest is treated like a riot and this is from spinney space and he says protesting has become more than a hazardous pastime once upon a time we were. to organize a march or a public protests that young people face a far more intolerant police force and state peaceful protest nowadays is treated like a riot that way of getting on the public space has been diminished because there is
5:32 am
to be more of a public domain in the commonwealth than a common domain where people would take possession of certain areas that they consider their own by birthright their area but because the core property is ation and because of the encroachment of copyright and intellectual property laws there are really no more public spaces even the public parks are completely co-opted by the corporate agenda so people just literally have nowhere to stand being completely dominated by a corporate agenda this final comment combines all of the stuff that you just said and this is scott gras and he says it's not worth being blacklisted i'm twenty two politically engaged and quite ardently against austerity and all the rest of it but used to see the number of articles i've been about to share on facebook don't scoff too hard that's how evolution spreads these days but thought better of it at the last moment because we know they're always spying on us even before the n.s.a. revelations i say that was the underlying assumption our generation knows corporations not governments rule the world and we must follow their moral codes
5:33 am
it's not worth going to a protest getting filmed photographed or heaven forbid written up by the police because we know they all share their blacklists around and it will ruin our entire lives well this is an interesting point because people say i don't mind if the state is spying on me the state corporations are spying on me because i've got nothing to hide and it's not about whether you have anything to hide or not it's about the right to assemble so the right to assemble means one or two or three or four people get together to overthrow the government during those periods of time when that is necessary and that of thomas jefferson the hell outta do during the founding of the united states he thought every fifty years or so the blood of revolution would be needed to keep the cost. fresh here and elsewhere around the world because of the perpetual and on the present surveillance of the state working for corporations the right of assembly has been destroyed yes and he mentions that
5:34 am
you have to abide by their moral codes their moral codes aren't necessarily our own if you don't like frankenfood if you don't like coal ash spills if you don't like fracking if you don't like your the faucet shooting out flames rather than water well if the counting in the private space is quite different than the accounting in the public space for example in the public space in the area of health care or education the combined efforts of those with a self-interest toward having a good health system or education system are worth more than any possible price that you could put on those systems when it is privatized and you have corporations running those systems they totally destroyed the wealth as generated through everyone operating in there and their own self-interest above though the whole is greater than the part of the sum of the parts of course we have all of this austerity we have all of these lack of uprisings the number one moral code by which
5:35 am
we're abiding is the too big to fail that these bankers must be saved at all costs and their and our financial ization our atomization of our economy and globalization must be saved at all costs but let's look over to where power might be shifting we don't know what's going to happen post collapse of the us empire the complete collapse we don't know where it's going to be vietnam's punishment for corrupt bankers death in the past five months at least three vietnamese bankers have been sentenced to death their crimes amount to just one percent of made offs haul the sentences off for sharp contrast between how the west handles financial crimes prison terms and sometimes just a fine and how some east asian countries do it china also executes those convicted of economic crimes though it's unclear. how many so max before they send these vietnamese guys to the firing line what they do is they stuff a lemon in their mouth and then they send them to the firing line and they get gunned down yeah i'm curious what the lemon is about or what the. how that
5:36 am
signifies but executing bankers is a deterrent and so in these countries like china vietnam and other countries if we haven't read about this before for bankers that are gauged. larceny and stealing and fraud they are executed and this is a good way to deter bankers from committing fraud and i think also it's a humane it's very humane because think of all the bankers that are committing suicide now people who are sociopaths jamie diamond are so shamed of themselves the shame is toxic and so destructive to their psyche and their health that they end up committing suicide and then there's a question of their spent ten or fifteen or twenty of these bankers committing suicide recently all over the world and people ask themselves their families ask themselves why did this banker commit suicide and they have survived because they're involved in major fraud and and some of these other countries like vietnam are taking
5:37 am
a humane approach just execute them and acknowledge what they've done wrong the family can seek some closure the sandwich it's a humane way to go about it yeah but also in terms of your economy if you really feel like you have a future if the u.s. empire felt like i had a future it would do the same but it's it's over it's the end it's the same n.d.s. as roman empire when these guys should have seen the barbarians at the gate were going to be welcomed in but they were just in their dabashi and playing around with their donkeys and stuff like that so this is the end game and i think it's a good way to put the lemon in the mouth it's quite humiliating and look at how we treat our own students and our own youth here in terms of humiliation rising cost of living forcing students to use food banks so. this is a quote here from the vice president of the national union of students we all know that students incur an automatic debt by choosing education but what i don't think people know enough about is the day to day cost of living people are struggling our
5:38 am
members report that they have to provide food parcels to students who literally cannot afford to eat now why can't they afford to eat why are prices rising because where we're basically spelling out the banks are the too big to fail their moral code but the cost of education is set in two ways number one by privatizing education and by loading up students with debt and by putting a price tag on everything within the educational system you're destroying the ability for that open source type of p.d.p. community aspect to develop in the value exceeding the sum of the parts that has driven humanity forward sense the ancient greeks realise that if you create the system by which knowledge can be shared or. who created the encyclopedia was able to overthrow the feudal lords of the time by putting the common knowledge into an easily accessible place and this created the wherewithal for a revolution so privatization destroys all that they atomize all this as you as you
5:39 am
mentioned earlier so it destroys the fabric of what education is about and then secondarily they loaded up with lots of debt and subsidize it which increases the cost which makes people not only last educated in the aggregate over time but it dumbs them down the turns it into adults and clubs the other thing about this protecting the too big to fail and sending the students into debt in order to get an education why are they getting an education when most of them think they're going to graduate and get a job right well the other wealth gap the one percent versus the zero point zero one percent everybody talks about the bottom ninety nine percent vs the one percent well the one percent the one percent to the point. five percent have actually their wealth their share of the wealth has remained. act that last twenty years and if you're in the one percent you're in the mere single digit million so you're worth it on average in the united states seven million dollars but those people have to work for a living and this is why the point zero one percent are the ones tearing up you can
5:40 am
see the chart here they're the red line they're the ones that have been soaring in the last twenty years since financialization and how are they doing it well the top two point zero one percent are stock market winners c.e.o.'s bankers entrepreneurs who are riding financial markets to outsized gains the rest of the top one percent are often mere wage earners you know to make the top one tenth of one percent using derivatives essentially because the way to get rich is not to make money it's a way to reduce risk the way to make money in these days is for the c.e.o. i mean jamie dimon being a good example he can put out a bet a multi hundred billion dollar bet and he knows two things number one the cost of putting on that bet is zero because interest rates are near zero and number two any losses will be absorbed by the government so is number three of course any profits he keeps so therefore he becomes a fabulously wealthy by not being a capitalist by not being even working but by being what i think many now recognize
5:41 am
after many years of this being talked about he's a financial terrorist well the other thing about this is it started about why the young people are not rising up but there's very there's less and less to rise up against because the power is not by people who work or do a job in any job so there's nobody to go to is derivatives it's the stock markets algo bots it's algorithms it's it's high frequency trading it's something that you can't touch or see so there's nowhere to go you don't know where that the hard drive is i've been saying for years that the way to protest this is not to go onto the shoes of placards but to attack the algorithms and we've come up with different ways to do it karma bank pirate my film star joining. by silver crest if you morgan do. those are pretty those are dear to attack the algorithms of wealth aggregation through financial terrorism been saying this for years but for some reason i want to stop and this idea that have to go out of the street with a placard and get arrested on the street and somehow that makes
5:42 am
a difference that yeah it did a hundred fifty years ago well if you go out in the street with an easel and burn down the banks and a mess a good way to break this yes that's right preying on the globalists are actually goes back or occupational i guess because then the second half as ever thank you see later states after the second apple wood burning down banks. suspending the show from the dia to my mind is pandering to domestic law these are extremely stupid you know within the united states and other systems to my mind all see it as diplomacy you cannot afford not to talk to a country like russia. they have come here to produce long a center identifies them rectifies wrongful convictions and other serious
5:43 am
miscarriages of justice and to save an innocent man's life these young law student cerned best again in the case. i think is sort of like a constant. law and seeking the truth to establish whether the witness had provided false testimony. will the one who has lost all hope finally gained his freedom. here was first the mr martin. with the plentiful supply it was terrible they lead very hard to make going to let you get along here is a plot that never had sex with the earth make their lives let's call
5:44 am
it was. just say. listen to a middle america let's. listen to. the. welcome back to the kaiser report imax keyser time now to turn to the famous burning bank's artist alex schaefer who was here to burn down h.s.b.c.
5:45 am
right here on the kaiser report that's right alex welcome back thanks for having me it's amazing to be in london this is fantastic and we're going to have our little interview here but please proceed if you would like to see going to be a little painting show bob ross yeah i used to watch the phone on t.v. he's very meditative was a lot of the to me i call him the gateway drug to painting now alex you were in switzerland where you burned down a u.b.s. on canvas you do of course the plane air painting and people can can watch you do this was your response to most of the streets what was the response i was actually pretty surprised being in geneva that the response once i got the flames going people were saying ah twice to leave said my group speak if they had a question then i would just explain to them well you know look these are these are the flames of corruption look at there's something breaking out in this office right here yeah i mean this is a you've been doing this now for
5:46 am
a few years and it's remarkably successful and a collector some around the world are buying these flaming bank buildings because it touches something universally understood how it got bankers and in vietnam being executed bankers in china being executed bankers themselves to many suicide there's something in the site geist about bankers now wanting to jump off buildings or just be be engulfed in flames because they are essentially destroying this global economy you're tapping into that and people seem to be responding yes that's what i feel first of all somebody suicide sound will suspect nail gun and he you know scary but you know what since we first became acquainted you know we had two thousand and eleven and two thousand and twelve. it seems like something is going to happen two thousand and thirteen i think everyone just got into a phone with a spray and some anti protest gas why don't we don't have an actual bankers jumping off the building that's a good one you know maybe there maybe there's someone up here look at me i'm sorry
5:47 am
you're coming on the show so i thought i'd better get off the actual flames to the painting yeah this is all this is free out money so see see through and see if it can't like just add a bit of an effect here just to give it like this. see this is the actual flaming bang exactly and give that kind of a three d. effect i was going to ask you about other artists in the space because we've got william bonzai seven and bloomer berlin and you of course alex schaffer you've been in response to this global financial crisis. why don't you see more at this time do you think. good question max i mean that's what a lot of people that i know from you know your generation in people that were maybe sixteen in the seventy's or whatever like where's the protest music where's the outrage i really can't think of and maybe i just don't have. the same like you made the comparison of the sixty's yeah i mean this is the banking global
5:48 am
insurrection against banker occupation is really the rallying cry for the arab spring reston in asia unrest in europe on rust in greece they're all protesting against the same consortium of banks and i see h.s.b.c. here h.s.b.c. of course one of the primary financial terrorists as we call them it involved and huge mexican money laundering and market manipulation so it seems like the you know if jim morrison were alive today in the doors were alive today you know this is be the topic tear it down but where who's you know it's not that i don't see it yet but you know maybe it touches on something you were talking about earlier in the show than i read an article about it this morning as long as it's just the working class and the middle class get and screw even in american revolutionary history nothing happens you got the people with the power in the money closer up to the top start getting nailed. then suddenly people seem to get upset but up until then i
5:49 am
don't know we just seem to be taken it right so in other words the point being that the the middle class and bordering on the upper middle classes they are just they just basically take it but once you get into the upper middle classes and the lower upper class and right like we saw in the american revolution thomas jefferson was not an activist per se he was an aristocrat sure but he decided finally to his his brothers to declare independence from from the crown and so what we're seeing in this financial scandal of the past five years as they went after the middle in the lower now they're going after the upper classes and this could be the lightning rod for a proper revolution you think well let's hope so. it's going to be more flaps you have cleats and i need to see i need some inspiration a whole fact. ok yes more yellow more yellow let's talk about this generation because we covered a story in the first in the guardian newspaper here in the u.k.
5:50 am
the young people they were wondering why there wasn't more of an uprising amongst the young in the u.k. against austerity especially now that austerity has been proven to be a hoax in many degrees because if they're not out there debts are continuing to rise there's no a stereo system transference of wealth from the lower to the upper classes and they have a number of reasons you're on the street all over the world doing your paintings what do you hear from this younger generation what's the feedback what they thought that was actually one of the best encounters that i had in geneva there was a group of kids that was there with a teacher who's probably about ten kids they look like maybe twelve graders you know senior high school kids and i started to talk to them about things that you and i know and that we try to share with people and they were on they understood they were saying exactly you know. understanding it in a level that i think
5:51 am
a lot of american kids aren't maybe getting yet even american adults what do you see in different cities in other words you're in europe near us and all over the world really how would you compare and contrast kind of different cultural responses to this if any if you know what i'm getting at sea in switzerland obviously it's the home it's a banking center literally yeah i thought i was going to get thrown in the clink in switzerland and in fact when i told a friend that i was going to come out and paint before they had been saying oh yes come visit me in zurich and then when when i told a well i mean i'm going to paint burning banks and i'm in switzerland for god's sake suddenly they were kind of like oh well you can't stay with me now and my parents said you can't even do this in their house while in the u.s. of course the homeland security yeah i'm trying to visit you i know that's crazy like the wildest most sort of outrageous response i've gotten is in l.a. you know in van nuys for god's sake it's certainly not
5:52 am
a financial capital but the entire capital yes was financial pornography when you were in france are trying to pass a law that would introduce the language of financial pornography to go after bankers because they want to suggest that bankers are morally equivalent to. the people who are committing acts of sexual depravity pedophiles etc they want to create really this class of crime called financial put a feel your financial pornography you know way yeah i don't like saucy is a friend of ours an attorney in paris who's trying to get this language introduced into the french judiciary. mention the financial porn the america next to the pornography industry and l.a. of course if it is a oppressive state in the u.s. the surveillance state in the us. it is there are a trade off between security and freedom and. the words as an artist you have freedom to express yourself and you have certain laws to protect your freedom of
5:53 am
speech but there you are los angeles and your freedom to speech and expression is being curtailed simply because you are depicting a bank in flames yeah what does this say about the current government the united states and the who controls this current government i mean is talk about that a little bit well i mean it's the same people that are controlling the government here it's big money. it to me the fact that you know we have systems in place that are supposed to deal with this and they are not dealing with it in any way she took corruption yeah i mean we have a justice system we have a regulatory system that is supposed to do you know regulate and when people start pounding the table or regulation or this it's just it doesn't even matter if they don't do anything now as an artist you're motivated to. presumably by
5:54 am
a certain internal emotional connection. a driving need to communicate there's a lot of emotional turbulence as expressed in your art it's the same thing that's driving these bankers to suicide in other words you yeah you're allowed to express yourself and they can't and so they just the only thing that they can do is just kept themselves you know i mean to me that is this is like a canary in a coal mine you know that these people are killing themselves or being killed one of the other i just can't see that as being anything but someone who's just looking into. i have soran and just realizing that there is no way out the politician cells nothing's wrong the media so there's something wrong but it's clearly something in the psyche of these people as professionals cracking yes right and on the end what on e-bay of course you sell these paintings and they the last i
5:55 am
think when i heard one for twenty five thousand dollars i guess i was the high water mark so far that is the high water mark so far and there has been downward pressure like keep suppress my price like gold i mean i did ever tell you that rolling stone wanted me to be in the hot issue and then i would have was exchanging emails with the editor i sent them questions that they sent me questions i answered questions and then i uploaded files to them and they suddenly said oh we don't have room in the print issue but we love you so much we're going to put you in the online issues so then i get forwarded to online editor this is the greatest thing ever the hot issue you're perfect and then i send more high rez images and i answer more questions because it's on line right there so you can have an album of my pictures two days before it's supposed to come out oh we ran out of room on line so you're suggesting you're all your work which depicts the out money going up and flying is being manipulated in a lot of ways we're seeing gold being with
5:56 am
a yes yes and for x. and y. bore absolutely because they don't want the price of us going to want to just like they don't want the price of gold going too high exactly because it shows that people believe in this work you know and it what's great is that when the show airs there's going to be about five hours left on an auction on a piece and i was introduced to probably one hundred collectors who understand what my work is about and we spoke on the topic and you know when i when i said to them. to me for example jeff koons who is the most successful american artist because he pieces are getting on bloom in a moment right the balloon guy. i make balloon animals let me give me thirty when i said that that guy to be represents as an artist the absolute worst in everything about american culture right now in american finance i got an ovation these people clapped they know what i'm talking about and so you know ok so i'm trying to find
5:57 am
your latest on e bay what i search for alex shaffer search search for me. put a link on your website og on the day that the auction is going to close i just think about put this on the painting and set on fire it would ignite we're doing our prince on oh my god sometimes that you know where i will that i'm not a bad idea yeah probably a bad idea so keep it in the abstract it'll be the illusion of the three dimensions it's all why there are no matter what great well alex fantastic glad to see that things are progressing and thanks for being on the show thanks for having me back that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser at par with me max kaiser and stacy herbert i'd like to thank our guest alex shaffer you can find his work on his website and on e bay where there is an auction ending today someplace or a big swallow you can if you like to get in touch tweet us a kaiser report and so next time bio.
5:58 am
dramas to be ignored. stories others through a few stupid no. food strange world. to picture. from rooms to. room. what events led to you ending up in this care home wintery migrated to clearly incapable of taking care of myself and certainly here is simply can't insist on his own rights without someone else's support and. suddenly
5:59 am
he started to be afraid of everything for you he was afraid of people he was afraid of dogs. the doctors suggested that he might have autism they told me he had virtually no future. of course it's still very hard to understand him. i love you too. if you need to review these economic ups and downs in the find out on monday the new york sang i and the rest i meet
6:00 am
a few that will be every week on the. phone with. the threat of force against anti-government protesters in eastern ukraine it becomes more real as kiev sends calling for use of military armored vehicles to restive cities and here on our t.v. we go inside one occupied building and gone yet to meet the defiant octopus its. people say they will do their best to avoid any violence but if the reason violence against them they will be forced to use these things. and russia is going to go to the council of europe boycott so discussion on whether moscow's voting rights in the organization should be suspended over the crisis in ukraine. also in uptown girl who lost an eye on the. u.s. . she gets
6:01 am
a new prosthetic limb but only to be sent right into the conflict zone. with one two three four five shower cubicles for the guardians to choose from and three twentieth's is that it doesn't feel like a residential property made sky high prices in london young locals set up home and unused offices shops and gyms acting as guardians in. but cheaper rent. a very warm welcome to you from all of us here at r.t. international. with your latest world headlines in less than twenty four hours kiev could carry out its threat to use force against anti-government protesters occupying buildings in eastern ukraine a video coming from the area ultimately showing how serious the interim authorities
6:02 am
are he can see several vehicles near the restive city of done yet several locals are reported to have been injured when trying to stop the convoy we spoke to one eyewitness. right. at about two pm received information that military hardware has arrived at a local train station we went there and so a.p.c.'s military of the troops the whole town gather nearby is the soldiers trying to start moving and the people trying to stop the vehicles this field are stretched to the arms of pensioners there were two young men standing there and they drove right over their feet i was pulled back by the local mine there are some men and trying to stop their beakers they didn't even look at who was in front of them the man started shouting for them to stop saying there were girls and women in front of them but they didn't care that was not just military hardware more personnel are being deployed as well this is a video of antigovernment protesters stopping
6:03 am
a bus transporting ukrainian soldiers to it on yet all those hours to concern that in the storming of the local administrative building is imminent especially given that activists there who have occupied it since the weekend say then not leaving. an option i spoke to some of them inside the building to find out what that the man's work. where now inside what used to be the donetsk regional ministration hand what has become recent believe me santos and to hear the protests this is where those who do not recognize the country's new authorities gathered and this is from where they fled the creation of the nets people's independent republic this republic has its own forces and as for tactics that they're not men that we can see here and there they're mostly formed from simple volunteers but there are also police and army defectors among them that must. defend model land from the fascist army that's going to kill us where for a referendum will be independent from kiwis and being with russia. we can see here
6:04 am
in their mold of called tales for example people say they will do their best to avoid any violence but the reason why the. against them they will be forced to use these things this is often what happened in the original capital of particular the people say here that they fear the reaper to fix an area at least they're cleared in a very violent way all governmental his ngs taken by similar groups all protesters detaining so at least seventy of them i only have a stick to defend myself coming own with machine guns and noise had yesterday for example was a chair like this it is a very large. crane industrial council around one million people live here while the chief region is home to the tenth of the country's population and today they still think the wrong route presented to use of almost all major cities and towns
6:05 am
all over the place region basically mine workers and employees of the region's numerous factories and enterprises and each region. who are in base and eleven story building that's another possibility on long he will protest against the gives nationalism we are for social justice the creation of a republic means drastic changes in the way our territories organize we are forty quality of languages we are against the oppression of the majority by the nationalist minority and against threatening ethnic russians we don't consider naziism to be normal then you go listen. to the sounds of the four hundred seventy million dollars to kiev and less than one hundred and fifty million returns all the mines and enterprises in the nets are prosperous. in the middle men do in the region if she isn't going to be going to be declared the solution is to this is
6:06 am
what every deputy of people's cows is provided to with the new republic then that's the people's independent republic has its own legal body with executive friends legislation functions and they're all. sixty deputies at least so far for rent they study and most of them are now gathered behind these doors for an emergency session within the next month liberal titian's will have to decide what questions to an escort agency residents will have to answer at the referendum before ukraine's presidential elections a name and what to decide what's country they want to meet you know if national team from donetsk ukraine will fool a large part of the population in don yet dislikes the self-proclaimed both already but does not necessarily support the occupation of local government buildings as some told us here at r.t. international more yup what you see but i am a pool severities when i'm against it in its creature and joining the russian
6:07 am
federation i believe today in your screeching is an integral part of ukraine and has to be in ukraine i would certainly ask the people that have seized the administration building to leave i do not lie the cuban government believes we need to bite the bullet and wait until normal legitimate elections and then afterwards. the confrontation has been unfolding not only on the ground but certainly in the media as well what appears to be an exaggeration of basic facts as that goes on very questionable reporting i discussed it all a bit earlier with r.t. you see i got a piece going off. but found some interesting stuff since ukrainian media is just what it with all sorts of controversial reports related to russia and information is often being shared and reported even though some of it is either complete or hoax altogether if some of this is fake is an echo instance this picture was published by several media outlets shows alleged empty shelves in a grocery store in crimea but the price tag is in u.s.
6:08 am
dollars in dollars turns out that this picture was taken over in a grocery store but in new york as it was getting rid of expired products now a list picture of a ledge to crimean refugees looks very familiar i mean well this is the do seem like refugees but the same picture was used by another ukrainian media outlet earlier doing a report on syria refugees seven hundred thousand but my personal favorite is this one this is a story about identification alleged russian spy caught red handed in ukraine and this idea is sort of like the main proof presented by the media it has lots of grammar mistakes it's in russian but the best thing is that here there's occupation and just as they say in russian what i saw as it is spy so that's not very discreet and i would have real i have an idea that's. not a very good if it's pathetic but also i found an interesting video of a ukrainian t.v. station preparing to do
6:09 am
a live report from an alleged bromide done for a western rally in crimea and here's the reporter and it seems from in their frame there's a lot of people around the journalist but then the camera pans to the right there and you can see there's only like ten fifteen people there but it's the later this is. also is in a vision and he appears to be directing the crowd either to make some noise or to keep quiet so this again raises questions about how correct this information is so there's tons of it out there but surely facts have to be checked out in the meantime moscow's. delegation to the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe is boycotting talks of a russia's future in the organization and one of the issues being debated is whether moscow's voting rights should be suspended over the crisis in ukraine a resolution already passed branded russia's reunification with crimea as illegal while accepting all the actions of the new author already using kiev as legitimate artie's pitter all of it takes a closer look at the document for us now despite the strongly worded rhetoric used
6:10 am
in the resolution put forward by the council of europe russia maintains that some of which is being put across is fact is in reality far from the truth yes it's purely a geo political stance so everything that the careful forty's do is right everything that russia suggests is wrong and every fact has been turned upside down but let's see what the resolution actually states. the unprecedented escalation of violence was largely the result of the increasingly hard handed approach of the authorities but when you look at the number of videos showing police retreating instead of cracking down on rice's as well as themselves that. should tell us. the assembly strongly
6:11 am
condemns the use of snipers and live ammunition against protesters by the ukrainian authorities at that time but at the same time the resolution seems to contradict itself because it is important that these investigations are impartial and free from political motivation or any desire for retribution. you know as a nation group shooting there is representatives from russia and other countries and it should be monitored by the international community going to current governmental commission be trusted if there is a possibility that they were involved in the massacre and ordered the snipers to fire at both sides now it can't be trusted all this without any mention of the use of weapons by them supporting the overthrow a covert u.s. government. there was no ultra right wing takeover of the central government in kiev nor was there any imminent threat to the rights of the ethnic russian minority
6:12 am
in the country despite even the casual observer in central kiev struggling to avoid the fighters of the group right sector while five members of the current cabinet in office from a renowned right wing party. the assembly regrets of the democratic changes and political developments in ukraine have been overshadowed by the developments in crimea the assembly strongly condemns the russian military aggression. comparing how the change came in the kiev and crimea war with scenes of violence victims and the other with rallies i celebration. thursday looks set to see the sanctions imposed upon moscow and even these have fallen short of an expulsion from pace temporary ban on voting rights looks set to be on the cards peter all over. and coming up
6:13 am
a bit later in our international oksana boyko talking to the she the the only official who proposed a stripping rusher of its voting rights of the council of europe on asking him whether he's being fair. are we talking about punishing russia teaching russia lassen well i think we should have the possibility to send a strong signal to the russian government and also say to the russian government this has consequences you have the possibility of still have a dialogue with us but we have to take away your voting rights so that we perhaps in my view i hope so anyway have engaged in dialogue with the russian to what i can understand you mentioned the word democracy here and that promoting democracy is obviously one of the goals of both the council of europe and the pace if you indeed stand on the principles of democracy and the rule of law i wonder why haven't you introduced a similar bill for ukraine you have interim government right now in ukraine and
6:14 am
have called for elections in very short time actually and i think that's the best approach. to go to more world news after the break here with the international including a closer look at the fate of a young afghan girl who nearly paid with her life for the fight ongoing in her country. they have come here to plug this long the center identifies them rectifies wrongful convictions and other serious miscarriages of justice and to save an innocent man's life these young law students earn vest again in the case. but i think it's sort of like a concept. in seeking the truth to establish whether the witness had provided false testimony. will the one who has
6:15 am
lost all hope finally gain his freedom. hero's for is a mystery. suspending the show from the da to my mind is pandering to domestic law who is an extremist opinion within the united states and other systems it is to my my last see this diplomacy you cannot afford not to talk to a country like russia. thanks for joining us here on r.t. international his soon for now though an afghan girl severely injured by a grenade left after a firefight in a village has been given a prosthetic after being taken to america for treatment but now she's being sent
6:16 am
back home right exactly to the place where had life was changed forever all in a call for the continues to go on also a conflict that took the life of a brother guy nature chicanos following a story. this seven year old afghan girl was brought to the u.s. for medical treatment almost a year after she was injured in a blast at home her village had been a cauldron of violence is the u.s. invasion of ghana's then one morning she went outside to play with her brother the night before there was a violent battle between taliban fighters and u.s. military forces nothing residents there weren't used to she picked up what looked like was a rock but actually it was a grenade hit it on the floor and it exploded the explosion killed brother it destroyed her right eye and she lost most of her right arm the u.s. nonprofit the children of war foundation brought should be to a hospital in los angeles where she received
6:17 am
a prosthetic arm for so many children like i said she's a fortunate one who came here there's so many more children that need this kind of treatment many were victims of roadside bombs or were caught in the crossfire if ongoing insurgent battles u.s. drone strikes are causing an increasing number of civilian casualties charity organizations can hardly keep up with helping those who have suffered from the war the united states should not be in afghanistan nation building or anything else and our track record suggests that we aren't competent to do this and it isn't exactly appreciated by people who see us bombing property destroying lives and then coming in and building a new school should be has enjoyed her time in l.a. she was invited to a gallery in beverly hills to paint with her prosthetic arm she showed quite a bit of talent with colors apparently chubby is that going home to afghanistan where every day millions of parents live in fear that their children might pick up
6:18 am
a grenade thinking it's just the rock in washington i'm going to check on our team . should be the story is just one of the tragedies that have become an every. day reality for many people in afghanistan since the western led occupation caught in the middle of battle was hit by a u.s. led airstrikes targeted by suicide bombers just last year more than five hundred children died in the violence in total the conflict has cost an estimated twenty seven thousand civilian lives colonist a con man from the foreign policy in focus institute he believes u.s. troops have failed to predict protect the innocent because that was never their mission. error to look at the role that this point of the u.s. in afghanistan and also of the pressure by the u.s. to maintain military forces in afghanistan is a question of security i think it has more to do with the fact that the u.s.
6:19 am
wants a military footprint on the border of both pakistan and iran afghanistan was never secure even when there were one hundred thousand u.s. troops well now there are thirty thousand u.s. troops so the the loss of the u.s. troops i don't think will make a major difference in terms of in terms of the security i think most people in the countryside are just rather there's a war over the. u.s. troops are not protecting those people in any case i just a few clicks away on the website right now a lifesaver in case of a nuclear mageddon an israeli company has developed the body belt that company a vital organs and protects them from the worst effects of radiation a full story on the website right now. as it is this one truly rubbish employees at a high end hong kong hotel throw out a painting into the rubbish and it's worth three point seven million dollars.
6:20 am
now in the program a car bomb has exploded outside the bank of greece and athens causing damage to nearby buildings but no injuries an anonymous caller legibly warned a local newspaper of the planned attack the incident came just a day before the german chancellor angela merkel is doing greece to discuss further austerity measures and also follows wednesday's strike in protest at budget cuts and layoffs in the public sector which has been demanded by foreign creditors and panagiotis a terrorist a sociology lecturer who took part in demonstrations he believes people's desperation is not boiling point. being turned into a society with. every day life is getting even worse and there's only is the possibility of extra misery at the same time that the greek government is trying to reduce that to resent an image today that is it is entering it's getting back into
6:21 am
the markets in reality it's exactly what was at the costs greek society has faded and that cost greek society is going to pay for this return to the markets it's huge and this can explain this contrast the government celebrating the return to the markets and at the same time a major strike a general strike and thousands of people in the streets and the reality is the people in the streets and the people in the people in despair all over. the side. or let's get some other international headlines in brief on the program fresh fighting between rival muslim and christian militias in the central african republic leaving thirty people dead most of the casualties civilians hit by stray bullets the first peacekeepers from a european union force arrived in the country to help over seven thousand french and african troops that a month of sectarian tensions in the central african republic have left thousands dead. and knife wielding teenager has injured up to twenty six people at
6:22 am
a high school in the u.s. city of pittsburgh four of the wounded are reported to be in a critical condition and police are now investigating whether be assailant may have had mental health problems but a suspect will be prosecuted as an adult and he's facing a numerous charges including that of mud. also in america cost slammed into a child daycare center in orlando florida one girl died in hospital fourteen others injured several in critical condition but the search is now on for the male driver who fled the scene. now young people in london are moving into unused commercial properties to act as guardians all in return for cheap rent and they're being driven to extremes because the british capital is now the world's second most expensive city to rent in even the mayor of london's basic salary wouldn't be nearly enough to live in certain parts of the city prices have been increasing steadily for the past five years considerably faster than inflation so workers are
6:23 am
looking for alternatives as artie's found out when she visited one gym that now is a bunch of flats. boodles of space in the center of the capital for a fraction of the average london red. eye. so this is our kitchen area property guardians are taking up residence in commercial buildings to keep them supported free to get five moving parts. in head sometimes if we're in our pajamas they get a bit of a shock because they're expecting it to be an office or her studio and they see us cooking eggs and bacon in the morning edward says in his line of what paying four hundred and fifty pounds a month is a godsend the main reason for me is is the price of the rent. free launched the director so work is irregular and not always incredibly well paid.
6:24 am
so it's very difficult for me to afford rent in london property guardianship started mushrooming after a change in the law the government decided to criminalize squatting in residential property but they left out squatting in commercial property so commercial property owners are not surprisingly very concerned that this will effectively deflect squatters into their buildings they want to find ways of protecting against that you know hence the state's idea read off a business based around commercial property goldfields and with no shortage of london is willing to live in warehouses offices and disused church as the applications are streaming in we have trainee doctors we have trainee lawyers accountants nurses people who work for the b.b.c. . they're all young professionals in good jobs who are just climbing the ladder who don't want to spend eighty percent of their month your salary on the road as living in london is very very expensive the only snag tenants have to be ready to move
6:25 am
with just two weeks notice and there's no pets no children no see. smoking and crucially you know a lot of parties. which is a shame when you live in such an amazing building your job is to look after the building and make sure it stays safe and make sure that you don't get complaints from the neighbors well this was once a done studio you can see it's got mare is going right across the river but it's now used as a lounge area by the guardians and through this purple let current only have what used to be the gyms changing rooms say with one two three four five shower cubicles for the guardians to choose from and three toilets is that it doesn't feel like a residential property yeah i have to go down full flights of stairs to get to the showers but you know it gets my heart beating in the morning and a bit of exercise so that's fine for now i see myself living as a guardian for
6:26 am
a long time i'm very happy i'm living with a large group of ten of my best friends and. i've got a full rent and i'm living in the center of london say for me it's the dream at the moment. and despite the clocks it's a dream that many people in london is to tap into. azzi not. coming to live in the heart of moscow just a second here on the program martin will be asking why the controversy behind drone use and mass surveillance done should be leading to more funding brokenness at just a moment.
6:27 am
for those who believe in heaven is a place of perfection where all the evils of our world war famine and racism vanish if there is an afterlife we all hope that in that we will all finally be. rules but that is our spirits said they are corpses will still be very much so segregated especially at a new cemetery in germany you probably think oh some neo nazi group wants to have their own cemetery with those meddling turkish immigrants but no it isn't all lisbon graveyard according to time magazine it's a four hundred square meter chunk of lutheran burial plots has been set aside for homosexual women by a group of elderly lesbians called the sophia association let's take a big deep breath and think about this why in our modern age do we need to divide corpses by their former sexual preference if a futile for a street person and a homosexual person happened on the same day at the same graveyard will the universe expanded or something also are groups fighting for acceptance of equality soul why are you advocating post-mortem segregation yet the saffir association i
6:28 am
guess has the right to do this but is an idea that is an amazing combination of stupid pointless and hypocritical all to same time let's leave dumb segregation for the mortal world please but that's just my opinion. crosstalk rules in effect and you can jump in anytime you want.
6:29 am
the the. day there i'm not a martin and this is a break in the set so despite fox news's best efforts this credit the numbers over seven million people many of whom have never had health insurance before of signed up for health care plans created by the affordable care act but while democrats have been celebrating this noteworthy achievement earlier this week the obama administration quietly headed the private insurance industry another major victory sort of following through on cutting back payments to private insurers participating in a program known as medicare advantage obama decided to keep the lucrative subsidies in place for next year see just this year these insurance companies already received eight billion dollars more than they even needed from the government to cover all seniors enroll in the program an unfortunate decision considering how
6:30 am
cutting these unneeded subsidies was predicted to save the government one hundred fifty six billion dollars over the course of a decade so if you're so sick of this country's health care policy being written by the private insurance industry and join me and let's break the set. the bleep bleep. a complete very hard to take a. look at the. lightning that had sat with the other three there are those. that believe. such. little. sleep. lately
6:31 am
please please. last weekend the new captain america movie came out i know it seems like a superhero movie comes out every other weekend but this one is a little different you see the film points out some topical controversies concerning the american government see the plot is centered around an all american superhero discovers that the agency is working for is launching a program called project insight and which drones are said to troll the skies and target quote security threats. sounds familiar the parallels between the film and reality don't and there whistleblowers also play a larger role in the plot when captain america supports insiders leaking videos of project insight and the agency's abuse of civil liberties and spoiler alert the american public reacts to these leaks with complete outrage which leads to captain americans destroying all the drones just like real life right i think that's where
6:32 am
the parallels and and in fact when the legal program is exposed by a whistleblower here in america it's usually expanded for example just this week the navy announced a new one hundred million dollar drone program to refit military helicopters to become completely unmanned and check this out operators will be able to control these new killer choppers from an app on their tablets but a comforting thought and here's the thing drone use is escalating despite the fact the existing drone program has killed twenty four hundred people in the first five years the obama administration alone and that's a conservative estimate that number doesn't even count everyone who's died in two thousand and fourteen via drones including three quote terror suspects killed in yemen earlier this month but as drones are used in this criminally around the world the outcry against them on the ground is growing for example in places like pakistan where drone strikes are a regular occurrence activists and artists have come together to put up an
6:33 am
installation that gives drone victims of face because more often than not it's a valiant women and children who are targeted by these killing machines whose death from above are seen as just another bug splat. so while hollywood tries its best to imitate life through its art we must remember that in the real world where whistleblowers are persecuted and drone programs have no end in sight there won't be a captain america to come save us. as the senate intelligence committee's lengthy report on the cia's controversial porter program nears release committee chair dianne feinstein has been raising her voice loudly against the agency so you find science perfectly ok with the n.s.a. spying on every human being on the planet but as soon as she found out that the cia been spying on her and her staff she suddenly became very vocal about her privacy
6:34 am
being violated because also accuse the cia of breaking the law and undermining the entire oversight process. there's one thing we know about the cia it's the last thing they want is to make their clandestine activities public so of course the agency is doing everything in its power to make sure the report does as a little damage as possible which includes heavy editing redaction and it pains me to say this but attacking feinstein for absurd reasons check out former cia director michael hayden at the same fox news senator feinstein wanted to report so scathing that it would ensure that an un-american brutal program of detention interrogation would never again be considered or permitted now that sentence that motivation for the report chris may show deep emotional feeling on the part of the standard her but i don't think it leads to an objective report right man i wish i wasn't so motion a lot of legal torture black sites and flagrant unaccountable criminality but i
6:35 am
guess that just comes with being the a woman so here print on all the noise are too political commentator sam sacks well let's them so michael hayden hasn't been at the cia for five years why is. continuing to go on t.v. not only to defend all these programs sam but making sexist attacks against dianne feinstein and believe me dianne feinstein is my least favorite person yet it's still absurd it's all basically trying to protect his home but i mean looking at these programs there's nobody more critical to the creation and implementation of these programs the some of the most controversial programs of the bush administration from the warrantless surveillance to the cia torture program as michael hayden he served as the head of the n.s.a. from one thousand nine hundred nine to two thousand and five that was during the time that the surveillance capabilities grew immensely post nine eleven and then he went from the n.s.a. to head the cia from two thousand and six to two thousand and nine just as the agency was dealing with the disclosure of this torture program and the destruction
6:36 am
of the torture interrogation videos i think we're trying to figure out what is motivating michael hayden i think it's best to look at senator ron wyden is quote he sits on the intelligence committee he came to the defense of chairwoman feinstein when he basically said this and i think we have the quote of what he said about general hayden general hayden unfortunately has a long history of misleading the american public he did it on domestic surveillance when he was a head of the n.s.a. and he did it on torture when he was the cia director those are words coming from someone on the committee who knows what's in this torture report which suggests to me that michael hayden's name is likely mentioned in this torture report and michael hayden is trying to jump in front of this report and discredit the people who wrote it to protect himself of on a horse and hayden isn't the only one who is going out there and preemptively trying to attack the report and say no no everyone calm down this is amazing jose rodriguez jr the former head of the cia's national clandestine service i don't know what that is but he was the head of it for some reason and was given
6:37 am
a room in the washington post totally on ethically to make a preemptive strike against a report called iran a cia interrogation program now whatever what the senate report says i know it worked sam should we just take this guy's word for. well remember this is the cia's washington post jeff bezos has a huge who owns the washing poses a huge contracts and we shouldn't be too surprised by favorable ink for the c.i. a look there's a lot of people said that wouldn't be any conflict of interest there so i'm thinking about what there's a lot of defense to believers of this program and they're going to just they're just starting to reignite this debate over the torture program the committee voted eleven three to declassify the summary of this report that means a bunch of republicans on the committee supported declassification not because they support the report because they want to declassify it so that they can then present their own for information to justify the torture programs as a program as well so if we think that this report is going to this report will likely offer the condemnation that a lot of us want to see officially put on this torture program but defenders of the
6:38 am
program are seeing this as another opportunity as you see mr rodriguez doing to rewrite history and say look this this this program was effective to counter terrorism even though it looks like there's no real evidence that that's the case is right and what is the status of the report right now well it's vote came out of committee to declassify which means it's going to go to the white house now it's going to be up to the white house to look at and it wasn't the whole report the report is over six thousand pages the torture report the committee only voted to declassify about four hundred pages of that that's the executive summary in the findings those pages now go to the white house where they're going to have the final redaction decisions over it and what gets released and the cia's going to conduct their own report and it's expected that the white house is going to cede a lot of the redacting to the cia so basically we're going to have is the cia holding the black marker at this report that supposed to be exposing an american in brutal tactics by the cia the so little idea that the cia is not supposed to redact
6:39 am
things that are embarrassing to them or things that they disagree with they should only redact things that are related to ongoing investigations or related to national security but we've seen that the administration the cia has been very loose with how they use national security exemptions. for a number of reasons so i wouldn't be surprised if they use as a very broad term to redact a lot of random fines and kind of calling on obama to say please don't let the cia really take up black market reject everything because god knows if they do there won't be one word legible at the end of the summary sam what else might we learn from the report when it is released well besides some more dirt on michael hayden we will let jose rodriguez is the reason we've seen some reports trickle out to media outlets of what's in this torture report reporter jason leopold with without zero talked about how there's going to information about guantanamo is one of the cia black sites where torture was taking place and the cia work with the british government the polish government the moroccan government the afghan government for all these cia black sites. for for torture to be used it will get into how with
6:40 am
this you know you misled members of congress over the tactics that were used the effectiveness of the tactics whether or not the justice department really approve of the tactics and whether or not valuable information was actually gleaned from using these tactics the washington post you know what you want has also said that this report contains a lot of examples of the cia misleading congress over this torture report now i mean i guess it is damning to have just multiple more black sites confirmed of course they don't want that happening now let's just let's shift gears here to the n.s.a. edward snowden spoke to the council of europe this week and said that the n.s.a. is spying on the top human rights organizations i mean a human rights watch other you know i don't know. what are the implications of this this is something we sort of known about it was reported at the end of last year that the n.s.a. was taking interest in humanitarian groups like unicef doctors around the world it fits in with what you'd expect the n.s.a. is doing based on what we've learned over the last eight or nine months which is
6:41 am
collect everything from the domestic dragnet telephone metadata program to the dragnet surveillance on entire populations around the world it's all about collecting it all in just because you're a humanitarian organization that's. addressing world hunger refugees or something like that doesn't mean you're protected from right to say surveillance you're simply not everybody is subject to it right exactly yeah i don't know why that's so surprising it's like a gathering one that's that's kind of the first link that we found out some speaking of humanitarian organ organizations been spied on or rather spying on other people what the hell usa idea this cuba twitter is in zuni you know you were just at the hearing about it what did you find out well there are a lot of lawmakers that weren't happy with the disclosure that the usaid was conducting this sort of program in cuba remember us it is an international development group that its mission is to eradicate extreme problem as property and to promote democratic governance and it seems to be also interested in
6:42 am
a far more shadowy mission which is regime change around the world and that's seems to be what was happening to you but you had lawmakers come out and explicitly say look this is about regime change in cuba and where did they get this idea from well it looks like they got this idea from the n.s.a. we have slides that just were published in the intercept from edward snowden and you can see that the n.s.a. is there's the side right there specifically interested in propaganda mass messaging using these sort of tools. but apparently it's not covert when you're them i really just think that they really care about the cubans and they just really were trying to help and i think you're just really blown out of proportion here and you scored sure that they deserved to go down. coming up you guys all future an exclusive interview with chuck d. from public enemy you don't want to miss it. april because i stop your asian media for a double dip journalists politicians and public figures from east embarrassed to
6:43 am
write a script print edition abuse the quest for compromises and possibility of current world affairs your resume easier for people twenty fourth to twenty. is europe willing to overlook those technical issues and sandals a little bit accepting crane first of all i don't think we should bend the rules and i don't think we will be if we accept the ukraine for example to nato but let's be frank if you crane was a member of nato before this happened russia would never use military force on crimea the baltic countries should not be afraid because russia will of course never go into the baltic the cost them a member of nato and downfall it would stop for a while won't. would
6:44 am
have and slid to you indianapolis care home the three. migrated had me declared incapable of taking care of myself alone and sent me here is simply can't insist on his own rights without someone else according to. suddenly he started to be afraid of everything i knew he was afraid of people he was afraid of dogs. to dump to suggested that he might have autism they told me he had virtually no future. of course it's still very hard to understand him. as i love you too.
6:45 am
public enemy is one of the most successful hip hop groups of all time the rap collective introduce an entirely new musical genre the world that incorporated politically charged and socially conscious lyrics and anti-establishment message and a philosophy that question authority and perhaps no member of the group and bodies this notion more than a front man chuck d. chuck has consistently ranked as one of the top and c's analysts of all time and has taken public enemies dr nearly one hundred countries around the world of the course of over ninety global tours and just this past year public enemy was inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame all chuck's a hard man to track down many was able to join me at three am earlier this morning to talk about the corporate takeover of music the political issues he's currently passionate about and the upcoming festival on may tenth that we will both be
6:46 am
featured at called united we stand evers asked him how it feels to be a part of the rock and roll hall of fame. knows that the feeling was. was reached in the rock n roll hall of fame night when we're. harry belafonte. introduce us and we pay tribute to him by you know we pay tribute to him when he actually talked about us and that was something that we had to really try to push to make happen because how many times you see octogenarians especially those of color speak their mind about what's going on in the world that atrocity is going on that the mouth fees inspired government and this world worldwide. atrocities by structural situations that are more about the haves and the one percent and the have nots and
6:47 am
and those are left and harry belafonte spoke to that being introduced by spike lee who made it possible to include public enemy and film with the uses of music and film to make political statements so that was the high point of the rock n roll hall of fame and when you design your signature public enemy love it or not used as if it were but the group why don't you guys decide to put a man in crosshairs if you feel like your group is being targeted and if so by whom well. r. and b. which is the name age he started off in one nine hundred eighty when ronald wilson reagan became president because that was the beginning of r. and b. reagan and bush and being a black man twenty years old in one nine hundred eighty going through the decade of the eighty's i seen a lot of things that were highly hypocritical the same old guard in charge and just total white washing over everything president in order to get back to the great old
6:48 am
american spirit for whatever that meant so witnessing this and the eighty's with the whole thing about you know reagan i knew that being a black man or black teenager or black male. and thousand nine hundred eighty eighty two eighty one seventy nine seventy eight i knew we would target it and not being part of the night except as part of the public public enemy goes back to that of original thing in the constitution that consider the black people three fifths of a human being and with that if the public is going to follow the document of the constitution we're going to be written up in it and therefore must be the enemy adversaries so public enemy came up out of that and on talk it was a boy at the time which is the person i follow hip hop the rebellious figure that
6:49 am
really didn't go for the okey doke. for us no cross dogs like run d.m.c. you know this undercurrent of the bastardize ace enough music chart you said in the past and the as a black music within the group white into the music industry has started to brand individual artists more and abandon that group this was a concentrated effort by the major record companies who are in cahoots with the radio networks they all what they call quote plantations which have slave ploy used to do whatever it takes just to keep things into the the black as opposed to the red but when a core plantation does not give a damn about the population on the whole just worries about their. spread sheets and their charts and their p n l's and they have to be questioned
6:50 am
they have to be checked. and the radio stations work on that premise. the record companies which are really banking systems work on net connected premises and all these things that's why i kind of wrote a piece recently saying that what are we going to do for about stopping hip hop from becoming. the new cointelpro one stop shop for the presidential conflicts yeah because if you create a climate a you say it's hip to actually go into this area of the green where they've set up these early created these new laws that are locking up so many people for almost like doing nothing you know if the situation. creates the climate and it all about getting into the black is a profit motive and they also have a vested in prisons then they created
6:51 am
a one stop shop actually fulfilling the climate last year not one black artist had a number one single on billboard hot one hundred for the first time in fifty five years chuck d. what do you think that signifies the direction of the music industry. is not wrong with macklemore winning best rap but it probably is something wrong with somebody who says that they control the category of rap music in hip hop and redefined the redefinition of rap music in hip hop when there has never been a clear definition is probably more troublesome the anything is so when it comes down to people making statements like roe that music can make political statements stet actually move people wow my question is who told you that on all hip hop could not be sucked into actually propel human beings to think beyond just having
6:52 am
a good time you know in a ten by ten foot room and yet while they dance it well who told you that so there's a lot of misnomers out the enough fluid around to be legitimized by co-op plantations that hip hop can also expose them point a finger at but it still has to maintain its ground and be strong by doing it sure tell our viewers about your role in the occupy free air movement and how it's helping to fight clear channel's consolidation of airwaves. to rescue a radio or free radio is just the waves that are in the air that could be picked up with an am or f.m. receiver small radio whatever and the fact that these companies been knowing this they have control of who is on the air. who they're going to do business with. and and that's been that way for like the last fifty years and that's just a crime where the a local artists can't be heard as zero chance of being heard locally because the
6:53 am
airwaves a sucked up and soaked up by these quote plantations yeah i want to say the same songs over and over and over again at the same artist amazing it is a crime you know but you know the question is like we asked the question why and never get an answer and you get answers you still terror to tell it terry and their answers like well they're the ones who probably what people were asking for it's like a psychopathic love dog thing it's like well we played it to you and i did time so you get conditioned to what's been played to you thank you guys have had ninety five tours ninety six countries have your troubles and phone for your views on the notion of internationalism. immediately we knew that without point of view we couldn't exist here in this vacuum the minute we were able to get up passports which i do which is kind of derogatory of getting a passport like bacon for a slave people so what difference is that from like south africa back when you had
6:54 am
to have your freedom papers or you have you shown some buy in america that you you got to you know give permission to go from one plantation to another plantation because a masters told you so why just take us derogatory for human beings especially in the millennium to give permission to visit the planet earth but we've got to have a passport because governments are in charge of things and give me i'm a cultural is i'm a earth this and i'm i'm not a citizen of anything i believe that culture and governments are diametrically opposed farpoint in the way of a government that says it's in charge of culture. so i like the work and i like to visit the world i don't read as a guy that you know i don't like asking governments for permission to visit the earth which i feel all humans should have check we are both going to be at the free and equal festival on may tenth which is all about credo not level playing field
6:55 am
for political candidates why did you sign on board a fast of all. because i got a big voice and i think. my voice along with my partners could lead a john moore with big voices to make an impression with music could be just says impactful if not more so with the use of technology in and direct media today then to pete seeger's. the kingston trio curtis mayfield odetta joan baez people like that you know we should be able to make hip hop be impactful and make a statement in a skate the the corporate veil that just cloaks dumb-ass with cation and.
6:56 am
entire election lism on it and on the masses i think is the position of the artists in the r.t.c. to combine with people who do this work tire tirelessly nonstop all the time. giving their lives into it the least we can do is on this is bringing light today like a prison music that's universal language and that's what's so amazing about this festival is bringing so many artists musicians and just really amazing radical thought there and there's so much divide and conquer going on when it comes to united these voices outside of the establishment will it take more events like united we stand to really take this alternative movement movement forward. so ashamed that we would consider it considering this radical the whole game and trick is that they could get a couple that they could get time on their side and get a couple of generations who are really combat of about to get old and pass on and
6:57 am
trick the new generations and so toys at them to hold them off it one of the biggest crimes is is the m.t.v. networks networks and this spell in t.v. eat m.p.t. why the because they give you nothing really and the booty and doug network of bt that's hijacked hip hop rap music and the whole games as they extend teenage years to thirty five. and they've been there this is been the principal says one nine hundred ninety s. turn teenagers from seventeen to thirty five and when they wake up out of the fog. thirty six years old they feel that you know with three or four kids it paralyzed to move left and right as they got to go with the flow people are really waking up to this and that's why i like you know we stand first of all and this show and your music really hoping we can bring people out of the slumber unite fight resist get
6:58 am
back to the root and really make a change here chuck d. amazing to have you on thank you so much. thanks for watching you guys good night. lead. one of the new will come on in a life should be making news all the face just like you know. lenny. pleasure to have you with us here on t.v. today i release you should.

7:00 am
place. the threat of force against the antigovernment protesters in eastern ukraine it becomes more real as kiev sends convoys of military armored vehicles to restive cities goes inside one occupied building in done yet to meet the defiant activists . people say they will do their best to avoid any violence but he resists violence against them they will be forced to use these scenes. russia's delegation to the council of europe boycotts a discussion on whether moscow's voting rights in the organization should be suspended over the crisis in ukraine. also an afghan girl who lost an eye in the aftermath of a u.s. taliban firefight get so a new prosthetic limb only though to be sent right back into the conflict zone.

with one two three four five shower cubicles for the guardians to choose from a three twenty s. is that he doesn't feel like a residential property amid sky high prices in london young locals set up home in unused offices shops and gyms acting as guardians in return for cheaper rent. from all of us here at r.t. international welcome to this hour's top world headlines. live in moscow. moscow's delegation to the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe is boycotting talks over russia's future in the organization and one of the issues being debated is whether moscow's voting rights should be suspended over the crisis in ukraine. following discussions for us in strasbourg right now peter good to see you and
7:02 am
what's going on at the moment there and any expectations for the outcome. well right now what we're seeing is they're voting just behind in the building just behind me on amendments to a resolution that had been put forward by the u.k. now initially that resolution had being to well kick russia out of there the council of europe out of the parliamentary assembly of that organization then seemed at that was reined back in that they would have some kind of suspension of voting rights one outcome that could possibly come would be that russia would essentially become no more than a member in name only that they would have all of their rights stripped away from them now this is prompted the the russian delegation to this is embley to to well boycott attending the session and the head of that delegation saying well this is
7:03 am
just facet of. the russian location does not want to take part in this see it or with cinco it has nothing to do with the rule of law or was democracy it has to do was geopolitics it was a desire to punish russia but i don't sing that these people has not as a moral right and of the capacity to punish russia so we will wait for the final result of the vote and if russian credentials are they will it will be decided to withdraw them will hand them in without waiting for the final vote or if russia is being limited in this series the limits of his capacities to. take part in the workings of the parliamentary assembly will leave this assembly and later decide will as a rule returned to his body at all. well the vote on the on russia's future in the parliamentary assembly follows a vote on wednesday that so a resolution passed by a huge majority regarding ukraine and not resolution well it may be late most of
7:04 am
the blame for what's going on in ukraine at the doorstep of russia we can listen to my report right now which i look at the wording of that resolution despite the strongly worded rhetoric used in the resolution put forward by the council of europe russia maintains that some of which is being put across is fact is in reality far from the truth yes it's purely a geopolitical stance everything that the kiev authorities do is right everything that russia suggests is wrong and every fact has been turned upside down but let's see what the resolution actually states. the unprecedented escalation of violence was largely the result of the increasingly hard handed approach of the authorities when you look at the facts a number of videos have a major showing police retreating instead of cracking down on rice's as well as
7:05 am
themselves for the victims harsh attacks. the assembly strongly condemns the use of snipers and live ammunition against protesters by the ukrainian authorities at that time but at the same time the resolution seems to contradict itself it is important that these investigations are impartial and free from political motivation or any desire for retribution. you know this is a nation group shooting with representatives from russia and other countries and it should be monitored by the international community can occur and governmental commission be trusted if there is a possibility that they were involved in the massacre and ordered the snipers to fire at both sides now it can't be trusted all this without any mention of the use of weapons by those supporting the overthrow. his government.
7:06 am
there was no ultra right wing takeover of the central government in kiev nor is there any imminent threat to the rights of the ethnic russian minority in the country despite even the casual observer in central kiev struggling to avoid the fighters of the group right sector while five members of the current cabinet in office from a renowned right wing party. it simply regrets the democratic changes and political developments in ukraine have been overshadowed by the developments in crimea the assembly strongly condemns the russian military aggression. comparing how change came in the kiev in crimea one with scenes of violence in the victims and the other with rallies in celebration. thursday looks set to see the sanctions imposed upon moscow
7:07 am
and even these have fallen short of an expulsion from pace temporary ban on voting rights looks set to be on the cards peter all over our team. by as we know peter all of us there in strasberg monitoring this assembly vote the european parliamentary assembly i can tell you right now here in r.t. international we've now just heard that the european parliamentary assembly has voted against the british proposals to strip russia of all of its powers in the assembly so potentially positive nod towards moscow now for the meantime in less than twenty four hours kiev could carry out its threat to use force against anti-government protesters occupying buildings in eastern ukraine bringing you some video here on the program on r.t. international from the area showing how serious the interim authorities are you can see several armored vehicles very close to the restive city of dawn yet several locals are reported to have been injured when trying to stop the convoy and we
7:08 am
spoke to one eyewitness. well. at about two pm received information that military hardware had arrived at a local train station we went there and so a.p.c.'s military vehicles and troops the whole town gather nearby the soldiers try to start moving and the people try to stop the vehicles the still just twisted the arms of pensioners there were two young men standing there and they drove right over their feet i was pulled back by the local miners and when i tried to stop the eagles they didn't even look at who was in front of them the man started shouting for them to stop saying there were girls and women in front of them but they didn't care. now it's not just military hardware more posts i know being deployed as well here is a video of government protesters trying to stop a bus that's transporting ukrainian soldiers to don't yet know all this adds to concern that an storming of the local administration building is imminent
7:09 am
especially given that activists who have occupied it since the weekend say they're not going anywhere ati's them or if an option i spoke to some of the people inside the building to find out that the mines. we're now inside would cease to be the donetsk regional ministration hand what has become recently the santos and to hear the protests this is where those who do not recognize the country's new authorities gathered and this is from where they fled the creation of the nets peoples interpenetrate called that this republic has its own forces and as for tactics that they're not man that we can see here and that they mostly formed from simple volunteers but there are also police and army defectors and moan that it must. defend modern lands from the fascist army that's going to kill us for referendum for bees independent from kiwis and being with russia. can see here in their mold of call tails for example people say they will do their best to avoid any violence
7:10 am
but if the reason was against them they would be forced to use these things this is often what happened in the original capital called particular people say here that they fear the reaper titian of the scenario police there really is in a very fall into a whole governmental visiting stake in earlier by similar groups hold protesters detaining say the least seventy all of them i only have a stick to defend myself becoming own with machine guns annoyed yesterday for example was a chilling then this is a very large city known as ukraine's industrial capital around one million people live here one of these. region is home to the tenth part of the country's population and today this building the wrong brick cresent it is of almost all major cities and towns all face region basically mine workers and employees of the

both executive friend legislation functions and there are sixty deaths because at least so far for rent they study and most of them now gathered behind these doors for an emergency session within the next month titian's will have to decide what questions to ask cogent residents will have to answer at the referendum the full ukraine's presidential election is a name and want to decide what's country they want to meet. you know if no sheltie from donetsk ukraine will feel the confrontation has been unfolding not only on the ground but in the media as well and what appears to be an exaggeration of basic facts has led to some very questionable reporting i discussed it earlier in the program without he's a good person off he's being gathering the evidence. both found some interesting stuff since ukrainian media is just what it with all sorts of controversial reports
7:13 am
related to russia and information is often being shared and reported even though some of it is either complete or hoax altogether if some of this is fake is an echo instance this picture was published by several media outlets shows alleged empty shelves in a grocery store in crimea but the price tag is in u.s. dollars in dollars turns out that this picture was taken over in a grocery store but in new york as it was getting rid of expired products now a list picture of alleged crime in refugees looks very familiar but i mean well this is the do seem like refugees but the same picture was used by another ukrainian media outlet earlier doing a report on syria refugees seven hundred thousand my personal favorite is this one this is a story about identification of alleged russian spy caught red handed in ukraine and this idea is sort of like the main proof presented by the media it has lots of
7:14 am
grammar mistakes it's in russian but the best thing is that here there's occupation and just as they say in russian what i. spy so that's not very discreet and i would have real i have an idea that's. not a very good pathetic but also i thought an interesting video of ukrainian t.v. station preparing to do a live report from an alleged bromide done for a western rally in crimea and here's the reporter and it seems from in their frame there's a lot of people around the journalist but then the camera pans to the right there and you can see there's only like ten fifteen people there but it's a later this is. also is in a vision and he appears to be directing the crowd either to make some noise or to keep quiet so this again raises questions about how correct this information is so there's tons of it out there but surely facts have to be checked and at this news just in here we're not international the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe has just passed a resolution freezing russia's voting powers within the organization over the
7:15 am
crisis in ukraine and more on this from our correspondent in strasbourg next. willing to overlook those technical issues and the rules a little bit to accept ukraine first of all i don't think we should bend the rules and i don't think we will be if we. train for example to nato but let's be frank if you crane was a member of nato before this happened russia would never militarily falls on crimea the baltic countries should not be afraid because russia will of course never go into the baltic because them a member of nato and downfall it would stop world war. joining
7:16 am
me. into impartial and financial support terry contribute and much much. only on the bus and. if you're just joining us welcome to the program here on c.n.n. national and afghan girl so vili injured by a grenade left after a firefight in the home village she's been given a prosthetic off to being taken for treatment in america but now though she's being sent back home right to the place where her life was forever changed by a conflict she can do nothing about also a conflict the life of her brother guy nature kind of following her story. this seven year old afghan girl was brought to the u.s.
7:17 am
for medical treatment almost a year after she was injured in a blast at home her village had been a cauldron of violence is the u.s. invasion of afghanistan one morning she went outside to play with her brother the night before there was a violent battle between taliban fighters and u.s. military forces nothing residents there weren't used to she picked up what looked like was a rock but actually it was a grenade hit it on the floor and it exploded the explosion killed brother it destroyed her right eye and she lost most of her right arm the u.s. nonprofit the children of war foundation brought should be to a hospital in los angeles where she received a prosthetic arm for so many children like i said she's a fortunate one who came here there's so many more children that need this kind of treatment many were victims of roadside bombs or were caught in the crossfire if ongoing insurgent battles u.s.
7:18 am
drone strikes are causing an increasing number of civilian casualties charity organizations can hardly keep up with helping those who have suffered from the war the united states should not be in afghanistan nation building or anything else and our track record suggests that we aren't competent to do this and it isn't exactly appreciated by people who see us bombing property destroying lives and then coming in and building a new school should be has enjoyed her time in l.a. she was invited to a gallery in beverly hills to paint with her prosthetic arm she showed quite a bit of talent with colors apparently chubby is that going home to afghanistan where every day millions of parents live in fear that their children might pick up a grenade thinking it's just the rock in washington i'm going to check on our team . should be the story is just one of the many tragedies that have become an everyday reality for a lot of people in afghanistan of course since the occupation caught in the middle
7:19 am
of attacks battles u.s. led air strikes being targeted by suicide bombers just last year more than five hundred children were killed in the violence in total the conflict has cost an estimated twenty seven thousand civilian lives colonist khan how and from the foreign policy in focus institute he believes u.s. troops are failed to protect the innocent because at the end of the day that wasn't their mission. it's an error to look at the role that this point of the u.s. in afghanistan and also of the pressure by the u.s. to maintain military forces in afghanistan is a question of security i think it has more to do with the fact that the u.s. wants a military footprint on the border of both pakistan and iran afghanistan was never secure even when there were one hundred thousand u.s. troops well now there are thirty thousand u.s. troops so the the loss of the u.s.
7:20 am
troops i don't think will make a major difference in terms of. in terms of the security i think most people in the countryside are just rounds of the war over the. u.s. troops are not protecting those people in any case on the website right now on t. dot com a lifesaver in case of a nuclear armageddon and israeli company has developed a handy body belt that covers your vital organs and protects them from the worst effects of radiation why would you need that in find out right now on our website. this story is also there for you truly rubbish on employees at a high end a hong kong hotel throw a whole bunch of rubbish out including a painting the painting unevaluated three point seven million dollars and. twenty minutes past the hour moscow time a car bomb has exploded outside the bank of greece in athens causing damage to
7:21 am
nearby buildings but no injuries at the moment and on his call allegedly warned a local newspaper of the planned attack incident came just a day before the german chancellor angela merkel is doing greece to discuss further austerity measures it also follows wednesday's strike in protest at the budget cuts and layoffs in the public sector which have all been demanded by foreign creditors and upon a jihadist terrorists a sociologist lecturer he took part in the demonstrations he believes p. . bull's desperation. we have been turned into a society with. every day life is getting even worse and there's only the force ability of extremism at the same time that the greek government is trying to produce that to present an image today that is it is entering it's getting back into the markets in reality it's the exact old was it the cost society has faded and the cost greek society is growing to pay for this return to the markets it's
7:22 am
huge and this can explain this contrast the government celebrating the return to the markets and the same time a major strike a general strike and thousands of people in the streets and the reality is the people in the streets and the people in england the people in despair all over the last it's a pretty sight it's all to international young people in london and moving into unused commercial property to act as guardians are all in return for cheap rent they're being driven to extremes or because the british capital is now the world's second most expensive city to rent in even the mayor of london's basic salary wouldn't be enough to live in various parts of the city prices have been increasing steadily for the past five years a lot faster than inflation so workers are looking for alternatives as ati's poly boy can find out which he presented a gym. boodles of space in the center of the capital for a fraction of the average london red. eye.
7:23 am
so this is our kitchen area property guardians are taking up residence in commercial buildings to keep them supported free to get five old cars. in head sometimes if we're in our pajamas they get a bit of a shock because they're expecting to be an office or her studio and they see us cooking eggs and bacon in the morning edward says in his line of what paying four hundred and fifty pounds a month is a godsend the main reason for me is the price of the rent. free lunch director so work is irregular and not always incredibly well paid. so it's very difficult for me to afford rent in london property guardianship started mushrooming after a change in the law the government decided to criminalize squatting in residential property but they left out squatting in commercial property so commercial property
7:24 am
owners are not surprisingly very concerned that this will effectively deflect squatters into their buildings they want to find ways of protecting against that you know hence this this idea read off a business based around commercial property gold fields and with no shortage of london is willing to live in warehouses offices and disused church as the applications are streaming in we have trainee doctors we have trainee lawyers accountants nurses people who work for the b.b.c. . they're all young professionals in good jobs who are just climbing the ladder who don't want to spend eighty percent of their milk you salary on the road as living in london is very very expensive the only snag tenants have to be ready to move with just two weeks notice and there's no pets no children no see. smoking and crucially you know a lot of hotties. which is a shame when you live in such an amazing building your job is to look after the
7:25 am
building and make sure it stays safe and make sure that you don't get complaints from the neighbors well this was once a dance studio you can see it's got mary's going right across the river but it's now used as a lounge area by the guardians and through this purple let corrido you have what used to be the changing room say with one two three four five shower cubicles for the guardians to choose from and three toilets is that it doesn't feel like a residential property yeah i have to go up and down four flights of stairs to get to the showers but you know it gets my heart beating in the morning and a bit of exercise so that's fine for now i see myself living as a guardian for a long time i'm very happy i'm living with a large group of ten of my best friends and. i've got a full rent and i'm living in the center of london so for me it's the dream at the moment. and despite the quarks it's a dream that many more london is to tap into. r.t.
7:26 am
. for it so the parliamentary assembly of the council if you are of europe has voted against the british proposal amendment to strip rusher of all of its power in the body of moscow's ukraine politics russia's voting powers within the organization have been a freeze until the end of this year we can now hear a statement from the head of the russian delegation to pace mr alexei pushkov talking right now. against the russian delegation we completely disagree with that . we believe that this. severe crisis between the parliamentary assembly and russia has several reasons first of all we see double standards being used here being employed here what we heard. yesterday from you can indeed a geisha is absolutely laughable there could be no other reaction it seems that ukraine has no other problems except for russia but we dare you to go to ukraine
7:27 am
and look at the country different parts of the country eastern western ukraine and ask all those people how to members of the party of regions it was killed in the headquarters of the party when it got raided by right wing activists. talk to some of the activists of western ukraine there was an activist who was tortured nailed pushed under his fingernails asked to one of the m.p.'s of swoboda party who was beaten up right inside the parliament just the other day and instead of condemning the sub order and the right sector for the same reason for racism what if this is something that the parliament of you were. called to in december two thousand and twelve and we see that this resolution did not get enough votes from parliamentarians so how can we discuss any single standards any
7:28 am
common standards of the council of europe what we're looking at is all around and we also see that. violations of civil rights does not really concern the simply what happened in ukraine has been acknowledged by many experts within as well as outside russia as a coup d'etat we know that the ukrainian constitution has been violated by this change change of regime. why are we not discussing the way those people in power in kiev no have overthrown the legitimately elected president in their employ violence took to come to power and nobody actually was concerned about this except for the european. group it was the only group that actually put forth the question of whether what happened in ukraine twenty first
7:29 am
was illegal at all or not. but we were told beforehand that this was considered who has decided that. the procedure for displacing the president is there in the constitution there has to be a commission set up then the confusion of court has to have a session on that and then the right of the parliament can take a vote there is the legal procedure for impeaching a president in ukraine if it happens this way according to the book russia would not have protested a show you instead what they did was disband because you shouldn't court sacking five justices including the head judge this is the senior judge and you will tell us that was constitutional. but what's worse is that the parliamentary assembly has compromised its own principles of the rule of law and of the supreme isee of human rights and the supreme a civil law most of the problem she said we have decided to serve the political
7:30 am
interests of certain states that seek to gain political dominance in ukraine and there is very sad in my eyes because the parliamentary assembly of the council you have to was supposed to be above politics it was supposed to be. a standard establishing this is. not a statement. me over here. you're. not happy with my statement it has one hundred nothing to do with. if you are not happy with my statement. i want to go someplace to the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe don't don't don't don't. do what you say. you know it dr lerner the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe with has compromised its
7:31 am
principles ingrained guidelines which it was supposed to protect not everybody. has been part of this and there were of parliamentarians have assumed a reasonable position and those those who voted against. depriving russia of it could you speak in english depriving russia of its rights we would like to understand what you say. please. please continue to go to. the people of the members of the parliamentary assembly who voted for a balanced decision to leave russia. to stand in the assembly and keep cooperating i believe that those people. deserve respect those
7:32 am
who decided to deprive russia of its competence is in the parliamentary simply have made their choice therefore russian president. loses any significance loses any point to it but those who believe they are holding the keys to history are wrong let me show you decisions are not being taken here we are also taking decisions whether we should remain within the parliamentary assembly russia's president in the assembly has been a volunteer a choice our membership in the council of europe has been a voluntary choice but the choice can be altered thank you please. my name is trickling both from the german press agency thank you. could. could use a beginning. if you wish to so we could understand you thank you. and. you.
7:33 am
i would like to know right so if you were. we will be able to answer your questions later. we represent here a great. country there is russia and what we have been hearing here for the past two days is offensive and insulting for a country. none of the amendments that we. tabled have been eventually. accepted ended up that i believe even if i stated. that this amendment would not have been adopted it within this forum don't you believe russia actually deserve these sanctions it actually seems to me that. this man is older than. me i have a question this is
7:34 am
a press conference. here for the record from the seats we will finish this conference. like two on you and you can see here. i would like to say that. i have worked here for eighteen months and. throughout this time i have never once heard anything good or spoken with regards to the russian federation which is am said. people who are members of this assembly should learn not also being but also to be able to listen but unfortunately we don't see that happening here and many of our colleagues. they have a higher education but it seems they don't have any secondary education it's like they never graduated high school that's the way they behave and i believe we will not be able to continue in this in
7:35 am
a situation that's your doctor or that's. i would like to add zones of this my colleagues for those of you have remained in this audience or i can tell you that through the list of those whose favorable we have taken the historical decision to unite crimea with russia their well being and safety of their families that is all much more significant than the issue of the council of europe and its present in two years simply we respect the council of the widest spanning political organization in us to any respect the political. but unfortunately yes it is resolutions on ukraine and the today's decision on russia's membership when they look like resolutions that could be taken by a nato parliamentary assembly by the nato parliamentary assembly they don't look like a resolution is taken by an institution that was created to unite all of you are. we seeing in the past two reports adopted. triumph of double standards.
7:36 am
it is if no ukraine was actually being revised but some abstract. where there has been no right wing coup there are no issues with the russian language where there is no mass where lation of human rights where there are no fascist parties such as right sector and. there was a similar attitude displayed today when discussing the issue of russia's continued status in the provincial assemblies and therefore we do know past this stage where it was still possible for russia to remain within this assembly but the point of no return was number seven that was adopted were russia was banned from taking part of the standing committee. and regular sessions of the assembly.
7:37 am
this makes this urges us to think about our prospects and if the format for our cooperation with the council of europe we can be here but we cannot allow you to trample the reputation and the self esteem of a country such as russia and also trampled the standards of the council of europe itself which is democracy human rights and the rule of law thank you very much. are there any questions if not we we need to retire. give. him a off. move next. may. i pick a. city i'm. only probably not
7:38 am
a. good citizen is that what is this young is moving. its ability member. i don't know whom it was a war. or the get this it was only. you see. your source. see. well you're watching r t international live from moscow that was strasbourg there and the tension was almost palpable there we are watching mr pushkov he is the head of the russian delegation to paste gray hair red tie you could certainly see the frustration in the air there all about the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe voting to freeze russia's voting powers within the organization until the end of this year though they did vote against the u.k.
7:39 am
british proposals to actually nullify all of russia's powers in the organization so a bit of give a bit of take as well just briefly mr alexei pushkov there with the red tie who was talking he was saying that the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe is actually in violation of civil rights it's not respecting human rights either he said the current regime in kiev it's not democratic it was not elected democratically it was also brought to power by force we continue to show you live pictures here from strasbourg again this is the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe this is the reaction afterwards with the russian delegation we're going to alexei pushkov here right there in the center we're going to tweet to our troops peter all of it in the very late in the of the future here on ars you can imagine all d.t.s. outside in a venue there and the very latest to come here on the program for the meantime though in less than twenty four hours kiev could carry out its threat to use force against anti-government protesters occupying buildings in eastern ukraine more on
7:40 am
that story shortly for now though we're going to go back to the press conference in strasbourg more comments coming here from the russian delegation to pace let's have a listen here quickly just would certainly. you know a comment on that which is i don't think this is actually my point of this is actually is it actually something that you've explored russia in the should. it's rather than a decision should you and i think we will take the russians or the nation of we'll . let you in the symbol you can lead you to the good news or to call your inability. and he will decide whether there is a point for us to remain in the public interest i think that would. be in the public. i would like. to ask you the same question that my georgian call that asked here but. doesn't it seem to you that.
7:41 am
western world in the united states you have. if they're saying that you just do something wrong maybe you are. but i will repeat my answer once again. i don't believe that the nations that have participated. in several invasions. you know the including the bombings of european capitals. the occupation of a country such as iraq i don't think that these nations. i would like to add. i. was working it was not only. because when you are but also in the. assembly. there i can show you that you don't think there are. actually good for russia and my.
7:42 am
family it was accepted applause. and russia. respected from preventing a war in the middle east with our diplomacy towards. the attitudes that we have seen here. at the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe you've seen that many even many journalists here have not shown restraint and have not let us. speaking at this free press conference just one. will be done for today. i'm not. very much. even though the u.s. has been the first country to decide on sanctions which were then were copied by the european union and actually.
7:43 am
the would have been deprived of the opportunity to visit countries by the sanctions in actually there was a motion adopted in signed by all five political group within the assembly. accusing that condemning that party but let's look at what's been happening in the world for the past decade let's remember zbigniew brzezinski's a great chess board the new world order with russia's age when he was erected on the ruins of russia and against russia. ruled that ukraine was the objective of america's foreign policy against russia russia. when the queen refused to sign the. association agreement in vilnius it was peppered it was swarming
7:44 am
with all kinds of western political experts and analysts who were trying to make a ukrainian change their mind what if or myself or mr pushkov were to go to the hague and try to convince their citizens of some something that was in russia's interest what would have been reaction in the east but also we see in ukraine that the events there the developments there are getting out of hand of the people who have started all this there are no longer in control of the mobs. of course there was a chance to reconcile but today we see that russia has a very conscious thing attitudes with many european organizations in institutions and we're missing an opportunity today those who are trying to establish a uni polar world. despite the situation in europe are following the second world war which was a multipolar world with you it would be unique u.n. . meeting all those people are ready to continue although all there are
7:45 am
scenarios such as iraq libya and kosovo all that in violation of u.n. security council resolutions the situation is very difficult we should continue discussing it with various for because building a new world order. blood shed on the ruins of what used to be a queen this will be like a tidal wave there also. we should not play by those rules in the twenty first century the terrible role that is being imposed on institutions by condemning russia it must not be a catalyst for russian sentiment in europe but so far it is true this was the case in. the case in the story was that was the case with a teacher in though it's repeating itself i would like to call on everybody to give his thoughts and continue our cooperation and i would be happy if this could resume
7:46 am
in a while within the framework of the privilege to assembly of the council europe thank you very much all right there we are live from strasbourg oh that was certainly the reaction of pace of the russian delegation to pace i should say the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe the last gentleman speaking there leonid slutsky from the russian delegation to pace bringing up some points you don't typically hear from most other leaders in the world he was saying that what's happening in ukraine ultimately can be referred to in author is a big new president ski's book the global chess board that many say has been washington's playbook for a number of years here it's all about geopolitics in ukraine nato expansion about the new world order as well a performer here mr alexei pushkov the chief of the russian delegation of pace he was also talking he said at one point he said regarding victor ghana coverts the former ukrainian president who decided in the west that the removal of ghana coach by force was democratic he also saying that the impeachment of which was violent
7:47 am
illegal and unconstitutional as well that the european assembly has compromised its own laws and values so at the end of the day there the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe has voted to freeze russia's voting powers in the organization until the end of this year more details on this at r.t. dot com for you right now. it will also be speaking to what he's peter all about he is in strasburg standing by for us as well for the meantime though here on the program in less than twenty four hours it would appear that kiev could carry out its threat to use force against anti-government protesters occupying buildings and eastern ukraine the video here speaking for itself this area very close to dawn yet skip showing how serious the interim authorities are several armored vehicles heading into the restive city of dawn yet sc several locals are reported to have been injured trying to stop the convoy here on r.t. international we spoke to one eyewitness.
7:48 am
at about two pm received information that military hardware has arrived at a local train station we went there and so a.p.c.'s military of the troops the whole town gather nearby it's the soldiers trying to start moving and the people trying to stop the vehicles this still just twisted the arms of pensioners there were two young man standing there and they drove right over their feet i was pulled back by the local miners men and trying to stop their vehicles they didn't even look at who was in front of them the man started shouting for them to stop saying there were girls and women in front of them but they didn't care. that was not just military hardware more personnel were being deployed as well in this video here until the government protesters stopped a bus transporting ukrainian soldiers to their nets all this adds to concern the storming of the local administrative building is imminent especially given the
7:49 am
activists who have occupied it since the weekend say they're not leaving. more if an option i spoke to some of the people inside the building to find out what their demands are. what we're now inside what used to be the donetsk original ministration hand what has become recently leave the santos and to hear the protests this is where those who did not recognize the country's new authorities gathered and this is from where they fled the creation of the nets people's independent republic this republic has its own forces aimed as for tactics that they're not men that we can see here and that they're mostly formed from civil volunteers but there are also police and army defectors and moan that most. modern lands from the fascist army that's going to kill us for a referendum will be independent from kiwis and being with russia the most we can see here in their mold of call tails for example people say they will do their best
7:50 am
to avoid any violence but the reason why. as against them they will be forced to use these things this is also what happened in the original capital of product the people say here that they fear the reaper to the scenario at least they're cleared in a very violent way all governmental visiting staking her live by similar groups all for protestors detaining say the least seventy of them i only have a stick to defend myself becoming own with machine guns annoyed yesterday for example was a chilling then this it is a very large city known as ukraine thing down still can't tell around one million people live here while the the caribbean is home to the tents of the country's population and today's building the wrong route presenting is of almost old major cities and towns although they stringent they see mine workers and employees of the region's numerous factories and enterprises and each region pi's its.
7:51 am
floor in base and eleven story building that's on the civil law that he will protest against the gives nationalism we are for social justice the creation of a republic means drastic changes in the way our territories organized we are for equality of languages we are against the oppression of the majority by the nationalist minority and against threatening ethnic russians we don't consider naziism to be normal then you go to the sephardic states bananas green sounds about four hundred seventy million dollars to kiev and less than one hundred fifty million returns all the mines and enterprises in the nets are prosperous. in the midlands in the region if she doesn't mind that she going to be declared the clintons this is what every deputy of people's cows is provided to with the new republic the next people's independent republic has its own legal body with both
7:52 am
executive and legislation functions and there. sixty deaths is at least so far for these body and most of them now gathered behind these doors for an emergency session within the next month newly titian's will have to decide what questions to nantes cogent residents who have to answer at the referendum before ukraine's presidential elections and name and when to decide which country they want to meet . you know if no sheltie from don't ask rainbow rule but breaking news for you this hour here on r.t. international russia's delegation says it's leaving the current session of the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe this off to a resolution to freeze moscow's voting powers was passed let's get more on this now peter all of a standing by live outside the venue there in strasbourg peter good to see you we've seen the votes being made and the reaction from the russian delegation.
7:53 am
with what we've just heard following the vote that went through they there was a press conference given by members of the russian delegation the head of the delegation mr pushkov as well as a senior russian politician. ski's the the head of the the lower house of the the russian parliament now during that press conference they talked about anti russian sentiment being fostered within europe also that those who had created the situation in ukraine it now lost control of the mob which they instigated this all followed a vote in which the the european commission the parliamentary assembly of the european commission decided that they would. they would suspend russia's voting rights as well as other writers in the ability to observe elections until the
7:54 am
end of this year now it didn't follow through on what could have been the what was a proposed resolution was put forward by the united kingdom which was to was to kick russia out of this assembly completely what we saw earlier on on thursday was the russian delegation initially boycotting the session that they they were being discussed and we can hear from mr pushkov explaining why they decided to do that right now. kind of decision not to pick part in this so far so what should be. happening in the recall we don't want to hear more of this nonsense which is. being disengaged by the ukrainian delegations by other countries that are guilty on so many violations of international law dozens of thousands of iraqis for instance have perished in an aggression that was
7:55 am
supported by twenty members of the council of europe and nobody has been censured in these nations and so the russian location does not want to take part in this see it or with cinco it has nothing to do with the rule of law or was democracy it has to do was geopolitics was a desire to punish russia but i don't sing that these people has not as a moral item or the capacity to punish russia. or we don't usually see these type of statements coming out from major diplomatic meetings like this but yes what we have seen is certainly some real tensions between the russian delegation and the other members of the council of europe we've also seen the russian delegation. and give their side of what they see is going on as they say they accusing europe of fostering this anti russian sentiment they brought up the fact that many of the members of the council of europe have been
7:56 am
involved in. situations around the world without facing the type of condemnation that russia has faced and yes as i say i've been to a few of these type of things first time i've ever heard those type of comments coming out from a diplomatic meeting like this so that the right of attention was just palpable artie's or peter all of the right outside the venue in strasburg thanks very much for that. and i thank you for joining us here and also international we will be covering this photo throughout the day here on the program about of the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe voting to freeze or russia's voting powers inside the organization to the end of the year hopefully you saw the comments coming out of that press conference there certainly a lot of frustration more news to come in about a two and a half minutes hope you can stay with us.
7:57 am
to try to clear. the people are going to be. like for instance you're changing every minute. oh well. like. they say. this case is. sometimes for nothing. this. is not just a story will be just because you see the state. t.v. . but on.
7:58 am
what events led to you ending up in this care home. migrated had me declared incapable of taking care of myself and sent me here is simply can't insist on his own rights without someone else according to. suddenly he started to be afraid of everything i knew he was afraid of people he was afraid of dogs. to duck to suggest that he might have autism they told me he had virtually no future. of course it's still very hard to understand him. as i love you too.
7:59 am
