ways firstly of course because it makes the world a safer place it takes out of circulation people who french authorities say they have hard and fast evidence planning terrorist attacks secondly it was a good score peroration between the russian authorities and the french authorities it was russia who saves the french police to the fact that they might have terror suspects terror activists living in this part of western france and then the french police moved in and also because traditionally in the rest of the. north caucasus terrorists have been seen as separatists people who are fighting for the separation of that region from the rest of russia but increasingly that that view is falling out of fashion as it rests like this take place and it becomes clear that those who are threatening targets in russia also a threat to the rest of the world and of course this isn't the first time that russian potential russian attackers have been arrested in the european union in

who plays the journalist is a pakistani singer and this is his debut film how does it feel acting. in pakistan in bollywood films greatly appreciated the scene. people enjoy them so i mean to see. something very refreshing and new for them but pakistan's firm censors have banned the movie saying it locks security agencies. and screening it in public could trigger. the film's distributors and. a message of peace and not appealing the selling point of this film is. but it's very tongue in cheek. to act the part in. america there will be retribution holding just doing evil actions you have committed in the countries like iraq and
6:11 am
afghanistan so these you will have to pay a heavy price. when i first heard about this film i thought it was going to be a lot of vacation but actually it's quite irrelevant. so i looked at with suspicion in the west today and how the media could be fooled into believing something that doesn't exist i think this film could do well in south asia but western audiences would probably be a good sense of humor to appreciate the message got and see r.d. . it appears to be a world of glamorous events and beautiful people but in reality it carries the reputation. and violence but as the rest of the escort agency. sent to the warnings for women's rights. it was an event that would mark the beginning of the atomic age sixty five years ago a test code named trinity would see the u.s.

daughter of fact big in cuba the cuban government has been in power for fifty years they can always want to change. escort agencies popular among wealthy russians have come under attack by activists claiming that the business is dangerous for the women involved they believe the women who are paid to mix in high society often face sexual abuse violence. single and in need of beautiful company. events you need to attend as a couple but you don't have your plus one there are people willing to help with that the beauty of the escort business is they provide you with a choice of glamorous educated multilingual women will be more than happy to grace your side at any important event but many believe this business is not just skin deep. the girls who are engaged in these so-called escort services get sexually
6:19 am
abused a lot more often than prostitutes because no one tells them they will have to perform sexual favors or who they will be passed on to sometimes the client who booked an escort will simply bring the girl to use own clients who would be using her. however women who are employed by escort services seem keen to disprove this notion the limit is an escort and she does not worry about her safety. suit that's not a look this is the those we make and we show the moscow gals are educated attractive and teligent and people enjoy our company but that hasn't been a time when i felt scared or concerned about my safety lines up and if the girl feels unsafe she can always leave some that. still she says she wouldn't tell her boyfriend about her chosen profession because too often it is confused with prostitution and many say with good reason all kinds of support for business
6:20 am
meetings claims the website of one escort agency but the pictures that accompany the statement certainly don't show any support and hand at a very illegal business some believe this business can even get you killed. a russian newspaper journalist went undercover for six months as an escort what she saw certainly wasn't the fairy tale promised in the ads. when i was working as an escort i got invited to an inn to use to very trendy influential man this was pretty normal thing so i wasn't scared but when the man came out to do we need kid i got worried and don't have a sudden he grabbed me and tried to force me to perform a sexual act a bit him and jumped off a balcony to ski and there scored agency owner called me and started screaming at me calling me a fat for ruining your engine says relations with such an important client. you know slow i was lucky others weren't the other there because they never talk
6:21 am
about what they've gone through these girls only when they get really drunk the lucky ones simply get raped like you once end up in hospital and they never complain because if you do it very unpleasant accident can happen like a hit and run boom and your dad. according to complain is the one thing these girls cannot afford to do. i remember a girl who told the truth about her life in a t.v. interview about how they get raped beaten forced to hand over all their money and the people that edited the documentary didn't change her voice or cover her face or anything a few days after the documentary aired she was found killed so the glamour and the money are very real but the danger is even more so i guess readers are of r.t. moscow. and that is the way the news this is our hair more of our website dot

at this time at all it's a radical difference from just a few years ago when russia's leadership admitted it was impossible to do business without backhanders summits like the one here in the urals are helping russia to shed its soviet image that applies not just to the products but to the way it goes about producing them too than a bushel business out see you catherine. the main group of petroleum exporters has raised its forecast for russian oil production in twenty ten opec says their exports and internal supplies of russian courage is expected to everett around ten million barrels a day organization says there is an increase in demand for all from up at countries like russia in particular this relates to the new russian blend supply from east to asia russian crude is becoming more attractive in the market pressure on demand for opec oil the oil cartel expects global dimanche to grow around one percent next year. quarterly profit google has missed expectations for the first time in

in russia are not coming up with enough innovative products that's the verdict of the managing director of pricewaterhouse coopers center of innovation will pocket all correspondent to tell a pretty cool work or talk with him up the international forum of industry and innovation in the world. we interviewed so about one hundred of the largest companies in russia. it wasn't the smaller perhaps more innovative startups but it's a large sum of the largest one billion dollars minimum size no a forty percent ever produced innovative new product over the last two years so the good news is that that's forty percent the bad news is over a two year period for large companies it really should be closer to ninety percent so when we looked at. who was actually doing that and what were the companies were the nature of the companies that were doing more innovating in the major companies and more companies that were subsidiaries of international organizations were more likely to be innovating. russian companies that sell in the international markets
6:27 am
are more likely to be innovating. like russian companies a cell just domestically or had state ownership. were less likely to innovate so there's some sense there about what is what is what drives innovation do you believe in russia potential to build it in the table top them all still seem a lot to cover for necessarily coming that way russia has to have patience because all of these very successful regions they didn't it wasn't like overnight they became huge success so it was sometimes decades at least a decade and almost every now and then russia because they need to be patient they should really look a little beyond you know what's the big hot new thing now or in the next year but sort of look at trends around science and innovation that are still at sort of the pretty competitive level where you can bring multinational companies together with russian scientists and engineers and focus on solving major problems. that's all
