welcome you're watching r.t. international and we'll start with breaking news because russian lawmakers have repealed the decision to allow the use of russian forces or ukrainian territory the permission had been in place since march when moscow sought to protect the russian population in crimea ahead of a referendum well let's get the details now from r.t. . who joins us can you tell us more about this decision and why it's been made now . absolutely well as you have said the decision was initially implemented the mandate was implemented the beginning of march on the eve of the referendum in crimea and russian officials were extremely concerned about the fate of russian nationals living on the peninsula particularly about the security of russian military contingent who are stationed at a navy base there of course now the president puts in on tuesday has sent a letter to federation council the upper chamber off russian parliament asking them to repeal this mandate in order to start this debilitation process in ukraine now
he was to poor he has been president has been on visits to the u.n. there where the president has also supported the russian president on his calls. for civilization in the southeast of ukraine also russian president was calling. on ukrainian authorities to extend the ceasefire that is currently in place there it is supposed to last until the twenty seventh of june i don't want to put in said that perhaps it should be extended in order to give all sides of the conflict time to lay down arms and come to. the conflict and that suggestion has been supported by the always seem now when it comes to the southeastern part of ukraine even though there is a ceasefire in place it is rather shaky as you can see from the report of my colleague from on course if. months of deadly violence have taken their toll on the citizens in the east of ukraine but there are signs a political solution could be in the offing does it cease fire is now in place and
moscow's also taking steps to defuse the situation with president putin calling for russian troops to be disallowed from potentially going into ukraine but this could all be for nothing if the truth fails to hold. you. shouldn't demand disarmament especially in eastern ukraine groups like the right sector are still carrying weapons but although it's often been promised that these basically illegal units will lay down their own they didn't do that they haven't even left my done yet i believe there's no sense in demanding and to government activists lay down arms of the such circumstances continues to simmer in the east and west of the country as fighters from both sides continue to die. our goal is the complete withdrawal fighters and there are places people from the general fund i mean the french they don't mind as well as general so don't let them fight now
you know what you have to do to do it it's a real mess it's those in power who have to foist the ordinary people. what's going to be when you have deputies they're all their children. the people from the general staff the ministry of defense then it will all come to an end very quickly . shell shocked has been without electricity food and water supplies for weeks with most of the residents forced to seek shelter in russia where dozens of refugio camps have sprung up those who chose to stay behind however still hold out hope for a political settlement. that is june still it has to be solved by political means not guns. the most important thing is live as one would give life to our children didn't really see now is war i don't want my kids to leave this to cut the world as we need to have hope we need to have peace which is this friday the last day of the ceasefire may prove it during points showing whether the shaky truth will hold or
simply break down from our culture of artsy donetsk ukraine. that libyans are voting to elect a new parliament amid the worst violence since the revolution there three years ago a million and a half people are registered for the poll and that's just a quarter of the country's population there since the toppling of moammar gadhafi in libya has been on iran on a leadership round about swapping one head of state for another in fact whoever is chosen the head of the new parliament is going to be the country six leader in the last two and a half years and aside from the politicians this popular support for a leaf i have to hear a rogue general who launched a war on militias last month his artie's. it was a time when david cameron and his allies paraded the libyan revolution as a win for western democracy there. surely your courage and while we are proud
of the role that we played out we know this was your revolution from your bravery a time when tony blair's handshake with colonel gadhafi was conveniently forgotten and maybe now the british prime. might want to forget that the libyan democratic project did not turn out quite as planned the mess in libya is. alla violent state. out political stability is a sham our internal security for its people always out security in its border the point of entry election is underway but the hand of view seems very far away two months ago parliament was overrun by gunmen jihadists militias and gangsters have taken over the streets as the climate of fear intensifies a growing number of libyans look to jennifer lee for have tar as they say via his supporters see him as the only man capable of crushing radical armed groups and
building a national army the us excel has promised to rid the country of foreign fighters and would strongly urge to egypt's new president washington considers him a cia asset but not content with meddling from afar the united states has sparked outrage by seizing a libyan citizen from benghazi but then she my habit that america came in and kidnapped a person and i might have decided brings it out here but if this is the lead then simpson no matter who prays what they can mean and keep that someone from going gazi them but america's saying nothing america is not responsible for what happened in libya nor is it responsible for what's happening in iraq today western powers were quick to praise themselves for they were initially if it's in libya and just as fast to disavow all responsibility in being gone see the bombed out ruins from general have ties lost offensive are still smoldering libyans office treated but feel powerless even with voting slips in the hands the last time they had
a revolution that did not turn out so well police here on t.v. well the twenty eleven turmoil brought economic instability to libya or production has dropped sharply in a side. failed to reach pre uprising levels in the g.d.p. here bounce back a little following the revolution but started falling again as public debt steadily rose the election is now being hailed by many as a way of the crisis but the director of libya's first policy think tank believes there are still many challenges ahead but the difficulty is whether or not those that are chosen through the elections are respected by the collective will of the people with the militias or other on the groups respect the outcomes of. a little process for the for the symptoms in libya that could. result in civil conflict and conflict among stroy conference various militias and broke amongst various didn't. you know i would say that's
a very very new one it's just conflict the most it's mainly conflict over financial i wouldn't say it's a people versus people who are tired versus all out onslaught but i would say that there are some dangerous storms of the moment still to come on r.t. international playing with al qaida the cia once considered using asama bin laden dolls with the peel off face to speak kids and in pakistan and afghanistan we've got the full story in a few minutes time. for that there is an increased danger of this happening in space satellites colliding with the growing amount of junk that is up there. but there might be a solution to this problem nice sort of collisions one entrepreneur we spoke to believes his startup company can help. our daily lives depend a totally depended on the satellite on a city like technologies like communications weather broadcasting g.p.s.
so we shared a key but that's this us it to be very sustainable we left to be moved top two hundred space debris the largest this debris so that we guess to be lies the destiny of the in us this object his face and to do that we are now designing the catch a satellite which sixteen of us there were any big them down to their atmosphere and then and also the mothership which paint six character satellites the other for example if you're something wacky lost by hitting by the agree it would have taken more than five years to precede and more than one hundred millions to cover it so that huge. we're going to take a quick break now but when we come back we are green his green patient executive from the organization has been called flying back and forth to work despite that.
to notice. places change. so picture. from around the globe. satellites and tracking devices to thwart pakistan were not enough the cia was also once considering using children's toys according to reports in american media has now been confirmed by the spy agency. has got the details the toy market is a lucrative industry generating a reported eighty four billion dollars in global revenue and it makes sense
everywhere around the world toys generally make kids happy except when the cia gets involved according to the washington post the spy agency concocted a plan in two thousand and five to develop osama bin ladin demon dolls aimed at scaring children and their parents to instill fear in families that would cause them to turn away from the real terrorist the twelve inch figurines world painted with heat dissolving material designed to peel off and reveal a red faced demon like creature with pure c. green eyes and a black facial markings the code name for the project was devil eyes the plan was to distribute the toys to children in afghanistan and pakistan where the cia was trying to win hearts and minds the cia claims only three prototypes were developed before the project was canceled however a source tells the washington post that hundreds of bin ladin demon action figures
were developed and sent to karate in two thousand and six although the cia did not move forward with the covert operation one of the creepy demon figures reportedly remains the agency's headquarters reporting from washington d.c. marina point i r r t. middle east analyst thinks there must be better ways to spend money on fighting terrorism than scaring children with choice. psychological war warfare is. a weapon in the struggle in modern day war where but it's not the only. factor that defines these kinds of. measures that the usually the secret service or intelligence community takes in fighting terrorism however since these action figure those words that exist to children to try to create living in the
conscious. or or or what he represents i believe maybe a different approach like investing in education of these children would yield much higher results. now the bad luck of the spanish national football team didn't end but then being booted out of the world cup. on their trip home their plane was hit by lightning as they headed back to madrid you can read about that at a website. called while you're there check out how british doctors are trying to shield the young generation from smoking by not them to buy cigarettes the details of the controversial mission to a just a click away from. the flu right from the cd player. search string. and i think the church.
they all told you my language as well but i will only react to situations i have read the reports. and know i will leave them to the state department to comment on your play of the month police a digital security at a car is on the docket oh no god i. hope they do no more weasel words when you have a direct question do you prepared for a change when you run should be ready for a. printout of speech and a little further down the freedom to cross. greenpeace had maybe campaigning for us to cut down on air travel because of carbon emissions but when it comes to their chiefs they seem to have a different attitude one of the group's top executives had flown from luxembourg to amsterdam and back on
a daily basis at the charity's expense since twenty twelve we're not counting the huge cost the organization his travel has amounted to over seven tons of carbon dioxide emissions that is the equivalent to three tons of recycled waste or one household annual elektra's city consumption and it leaves the same carbon footprint as seventeen barrels of oil ryan holiday wrote a book about green pieces policies and he believes often their words don't match their actions. most observers are prone to critical is especially when you hear executives defending it as as a compromise between you know the needs of a business and impacting the environment which is basically exactly would agree others not to do what i assume that what people are upset about is greenpeace is very public about condemning other people for their decisions and their you know sort of environmental impact and then in private or behind closed doors is sort of
doing whatever personal we feel is best or personally benefits now that's where you see charges of obviously of hypocrisy you know greenpeace because it hasn't all will be assured because they still have a noble vision they are somehow. you know above the rules work and do whatever they think is right and that kind of relativity creates the problems like we're talking about now. let's have a quick look at some other world news now starting with a series of bomb attacks on cairo metro stations at least four people have been injured the explosions occurred within minutes of each other during the morning rush hour some metro lines and now closed and. egypt has seen a wave of violence since the army ousted the country's first democratically elected president almost a year ago and authorities launched a crackdown on his supporters. in paris police crackdown on striking rail workers over five hundred people gathered in the center of the capital angry plans to reform a national rail service scuffles erupted when my police tried to push protesters
off the main roads there were kids in paris have been on strike for over two weeks now continuing from a national strike. and in the northern pakistan city of peshawar gunmen have opened fire on a passenger plane while it was landing a woman was killed in the incident and two crew members wounded pakistani authorities are still looking for the attackers no group says it's carried out the assault but militants are currently active in the tribal northwest regions of the country. and at least thirty two people have been killed as iraqi security forces try to regain control of the country's largest oil refinery and the strategic town of baiji officials say many of the dead and wounded were civilians the islamic group isis had earlier claimed to have captured the refinery the escalating crisis in the country is prompting fears of instability on the global oil markets were later this issue was discussed in boom bust. i think the politics affect the
economy and that the politics and the political games that will need to be played here in iraq will affect the economy more than just the oil situation the reality is that your politics do impact economics and vice versa so what happens in iraq potentially could have implications on economics just because of the politics i think the interesting is is basically i mean is iraq not that big a country economically speaking in the global stage but it has a lot of oil because it has all that means it can have a disruptive oil market. boom bust coming up a little later on now have a look at these pictures thick clouds of smoke have covered parts of the russian city of novosibirsk half constructed shopping center caught fire at least two people have been taken to hospital with burns and several nearby buildings have
been evacuated because of the very heavy smoke because of the fire which damaged several stories in the building still. politicians in the u.k. have been sounding the alarm over the influx of immigrants from romania and bulgaria after brussels lifted employing restrictions for them this year is estimated britain could see a rise of fifty thousand people a year coming from the eastern european countries meanwhile though some brits a choosing to reverse the trend and settle down in remaining instead is r.t. as you go off reports. that michael is british but spent most of his life outside the u.k. his father worked in the military and the family has done its peers share of globetrotting but it's a real medium where mike decided to settle down and open a burra he's been running for five years now i love the opportunity of my life and my quest still the nightlife you know i like to play. here is one of the reasons
why i went into this business i love the people of the climate's the culture sophie and i and the media who seem more than welcoming since the beginning of this year they have been able to travel and work all over the e.u. some british deputies worried immigrants could start flooding in even suggested running a scare campaign to put them off coming to the u.k. there are many impress saw the letter side of the situation and started campaigning for british citizens to move here and work instead since romania's accession to the e.u. in two thousand and seven brits no longer have to register when they move here so it's hard to say the exact number of them living here but according to the british embassy it's somewhere between three and four thousand and some have even made a business out of helping other newcomers to get started in this country like another british ex-pat who left the u.k. eight years ago after his eighty company went bankrupt he makes a living here by helping other experts register firms find staff buy property and offers other help of foreign businessmen may need when setting up shop rumania has
a long long way to go before it could be perceived as let's say a western european type country but for a guy like myself yes i would recommend anyone to come here romania is far from the wealthiest of the e.u. states in fact with the average salary of less than four hundred euros per month it's one of the poorest to the surprise of many word of a mass exodus of romanians to the rest of the e.u. this country has actually given thousands of westerners opportunities they couldn't find at home you got this kind of r t book arrest. up next you can see for yourselves time news is actually made here without international the latest news team at the site is coming your way.

hello there i'm marinating this is boom bust and these are some of the stories that we're tracking for you today. first up u.s. prosecutors have reached a settlement over fraud claims b.n.p. perry bought that will see the french firm temporarily banned from trading in u.s. dollars i repeat banned from trading in u.s. dollars i mean this is a pretty big deal and we'll look into its implications on the global banking system then poland roasters on the program today colin is sitting down with me to discuss the u.s. economy are we finally thawing out after a brutally rigid start to the year will discuss coming right up and in today's big deal edward harrison and i are talking about the current conflict in iraq and help potentially imperiled the oil markets you won't want to miss a moment to it. our
lead story today american banking exceptionalism in the framework of the b.n.p. dispute now right now french bank b.n.p. perry ball is being investigated for a laundry money for the sudanese and the iranians u.s. authorities are looking into whether b.n.p. evaded u.s. sanctions between two thousand and two and two thousand and nine and whether the bank stripped out identifying information from wire transfers in order to pass through the u.s. financial system without raising any red flags and allegedly covering up forty million dollars in transactions now u.s. regulators are currently working out settlement terms with the banks which are expected to i'm. roughly eight or nine billion dollars in fines the fines will
settle charges that the bank was doing illegal business however on top of the cash payments the french bank is also being pressured to plead guilty to a crime that crime being conspiracy to violate the international margins the economic power act now a guilty plea will consequently allow regulators to temporarily bore b.n.p. from processing any dollar payments at all now this is a very big deal the ability to process and move money in u.s. currency is vital and i mean to be n.p. the department of financial services is also weighing whether to bar dollar clearing for the whole bank or just certain units more closely responsible for the alleged money laundering now if regulators were to ban all of b.n.p. from processing in dollars they would likely go out of business so yeah like i said big deal now understandably french authorities are livid and they're saying that they can't understand what b.n.p. did wrong in the first place as the bank.
