9:02 am
is really significant for three reasons firstly of course it makes the world a safer place there was hard and fast evidence that these men were conspiring to perpetrate terrorist attacks certainly in moscow possibly in the rest of the world also this was an arrest by the french police which came in response to a tip off from russia it was the russian authorities who told police in western france that they had potential church and terrorists living there and then the differential sources moved in and arrested these people so it's really an example of of russia and european countries working together to minimize the terrorist threats. chechen and north caucasus terrorists have traditionally been seen by the rest of the world as separatists people who are fighting for the independence of their region from the rest of russia now with the rest like the view is starting to go out to very good starting to be recognized that attacks in russia are just as

a new bollywood comedy has been bound in pakistan because it features. like the film was released on a friday in asia and europe but. the war the common tread of the world's most wanted man could trigger terrorist attacks all these counseling means the people behind the indian film that the world is ready for post nine eleven. this could well be the biggest scoop of my career interviewing the world's most wanted terrorist however this man does not have a twenty five million dollar reward on his head in fact he's not osama bin laden but an actor in a bollywood bin ladin or without you lot in but just in case you think this is a movie glorifying a terrorist it is a general sort of film. biography it's a film which is on the post nine eleven world of which bin laden happens to be
9:09 am
a very important character and this is a fair number of feet bin laden and that's how we're using it's not insensitive or offensive in any way and anybody from anybody of the world is going to enjoy this from i can guarantee you that it's american comedy set in pakistan where the young journalist is fixated with going to america and he decided to stick it to get there is an interview with osama bin laden so he goes about creating a fake or. using a look alike. they had to keep the twenty five year old actor under wraps to prevent stampede spoiled making the film. had gone to shopping mall in noida to promote this film and there was a commotion there a crowd of more than a hundred people gathered so will fall in this time pete was scared can wait to attack me but nothing like that happened they wanted to shake my hand and take my autograph so i signed with love someone. who plays the

journalist is a pakistani singer and this is his debut film how does it feel acting in an indian film set in pakistan in pakistan bollywood films are greatly appreciated they are seen. people enjoy them. so i mean to see a pakistani. something very refreshing and new for them but pakistan's firm censors have banned the movie saying it mocks security agencies. and screening it in public could trigger violence the film's distributors in pakistan call it a message of peace and not appealing the ban the selling point of this film is osama bin laden but it's very tongue in cheek. to act the part in. america there will be retribution holding just evil actions you have committed in the countries like iraq and 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
9:11 am
a lot of vacation but actually it's quite irrelevant in the way pakistanis and muslims are looked at with suspicion in the west today and how the video 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 seeing r.t. . they will go in the president's head to dive into the world's deepest lake aboard a stage at the el mini sub nation feel like a spaceman he visited late biocon in siberia and went below the surface on a russian scientific research a battle he was eased during filming of big blockbuster movie titanic the vessel was also the first. form amount to send to the seabed pole when i call it the wild deepest lake in its main source of water is the mongolian mountain. fifty five years ago a nuclear test the u.s.

9:17 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 books in his court will simply bring the girl to use on clients who abuse her. however women who are employed by escort services seem keen to disprove this notion the limb is an escort and she does not. about her safety. this is the bills we make clients we show them ask girls 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 of data and if the girl feels unsafe she can always leave so i'm not worried 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 meetings claims the website of one escort agency but the pictures that accompany the statement certainly don't show any support and hint 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 interview with two 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 one hundred and dollars sudden he grabbed me and tried to force me to perform a sexual act a bit him and jumped off a balcony to ski. you know islam was lucky others weren't. there because they never talk about what they've gone through these girls only they get really drunk the lucky ones simply get raped and like you once end up in hospital and they

9:22 am
additional aid maybe from the russian side or possibly inspired from from european countries the source of gas will not be only russia but see as your budget is well served here bitching and interest of the pipeline on the russian territory and to ship virus or stream parts one to the part of europe. russia clearly needs. in diversification from from ukraine diversification from from transit flows but the problem is that european countries also need diversification and are clearly are constructing sellstrom does not truly imply that europe will divorce a far from russia. check out the markets now in russia the odds he has had in my six are often sound all the major protests are gaining bucking the trend it's going to be ross ross telecoms trading lower and stocks in the u.k.

quarterly results from google have missed expectations for the first time in two years the world's top search engine posted net income of one point eight billion dollars for the second quarter but the growth in the company's expenses offset a twenty four percent jump in revenue analysts are worried about rising costs as google spends heavily on research and development to expand its new products. big state owned companies in russia are not coming up with enough for any innovative products that's the verdict of the managing director of pricewaterhouse coopers center of innovation bo parker now our correspondent attempt to cover caught up with him at the international forum of industry and innovation in the polls. we interviewed that some one hundred of the largest companies and russia so it wasn't a smaller perhaps more innovative start ups but it's a large sum of the largest one billion dollars minimum size no
9:25 am
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 or really should be closer to ninety percent so when we looked at. who was actually doing that and what were the companies with the nature of the companies that were doing more innovating in the major companies or foreign companies that were subsidiaries of international organizations were more likely to be innovative. russian companies that sell in the international markets and were more likely to be innovating. but 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's potential to build it in the table top them all still seem a lot to cover for now if they come that way russia has to have patience because all of these very successful regions they didn't it wasn't like overnight they
9:26 am
became huge successes it was sometimes decades at least a decade and almost i think 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 in innovation that are still sort of the pretty competitive love where you can bring multinational companies together with russian scientists and engineers and focus on solving major problems. and that's all the update for this hour but you can always read most always in our website r.t. dot com slash business i'll be back at twenty past the hour with more. c
