live from the russian capital this is welcome to the program while roaring engines and hard rock music are shaking the ukrainian city of sevastopol and a new international bike show gets into gear this year's festival however had an unexpected guest roughing up the action. was there for. one thing can be said for certain about the russian prime minister he certainly knows how to make an entrance arriving at the bike show that is taking place in the ukrainian region of crimea just outside of the ukrainian city of sevastopol the russian prime minister made his entrance like all of the other people here did on a bike admittedly it was the first time that he was seen and public on a motorcycle and he's speaking to the crowds here later said that it was an experience that he very much enjoyed specifically because of course the bike is very much associated with freedom and the free journey that most bikers do
10:01 am
experience when they take to the roads and of course everybody here very excited to hear that they greeted with cheers they everything reacted responded to everything that he said all of the wishes that he bestowed upon him and thanked them for inviting him to this very event this annual event that takes place in the ukrainian region of the crimea. is the most democratic means of transport their own of course some high profile we'll see that i'm right today but on the whole bikes and widely available and it's possible to say soon balanchine inanimate objects is the most courageous adventurous and the fastest means of transport and what's most important to it gives the owner of the bike a sweet feeling of freedom so without any exaggeration we could say that the bike is a symbol of freedom. every year bikers from around the world gather here driving down to spend a few. in the crimean sun by the lake just have some fun enjoy each other's company
10:02 am
and this year was one of those who shared that freedom and not joy with them of course in his speech he touched upon many prominent issues of course thanking first of all the ukrainian government for making such a thing as the bike show possible and making it a possibility to happen of course congratulating everybody not only with this event but with the upcoming day of the russian navy which the craniums and the russians according to legend it will be celebrating together of course the russian black sea fleet is stationed just a few kilometers away from here on the black sea in the city of sevastopol and a huge navy parade is scheduled to take place tomorrow morning on sunday morning so a great event most of the people here will actually move over to the city of sevastopol to watch the parade to take part in the festivities all in all a very happy occasion that was in the making his mark left just the way he came on
10:03 am
a bike. right there and there's plenty more coming your way this hour here. you can find on who heard the drought is making to be iran's latest story. who wants to live forever those willing to place not just the face but also the brains to use in the hands of scientists in the resurrection. struggling homeowners troubled for my own son queued for over twenty four hours to get free advice being offered by a mortgage advocacy group in washington d.c. they say the government's aid program has failed them well despite talk of an end to the financial crisis more than three hundred thousand homes are still repossessed every month in the united states. these are the faces behind the crisis we're waiting and hoping and praying to me but we can decide to help everybody really help you know to help and that's what we're looking for you
10:04 am
know the desperate voices of those who have reached the end of the line for i am still am what time nine thirty nine thirty last night when did you sleep here yeah right down there on the crown naomi lawrence took several buses from florida eighteen hours then arrived at the washington d.c. convention center thursday morning waiting thirty hours to get in oh you've been our boy it's tat and we don't have no place to one bathroom. but they waited anyway for a chance to restructure the mortgages on their homes all part of the save the dream tour good you need to go put on by the neighborhood assistance corporation of america or natca this is a look at foreclosure activity around the united states during the last year the height of it came in march of this year but never once did it fall below three hundred thousand homes in a month everybody here has tried to work with their lender and it's failed c.e.o.
10:05 am
bruce marks calls himself a financial terrorist and with the help of many volunteers works with people to help them they get counseling and meet with lenders to come up with an affordable mortgage or to lower their interest rate or both not everyone qualifies but everyone is at least promised an answer the where in adjustable rate mortgage rates just keep going up and it's this and believable not the targets people with nowhere else to turn my more dish basically is out of reach so i'm actually. choosing whether to keep or pay more ditch. there are also target c.e.o.'s of big banks who they say caused this crisis by protesting outside their houses putting furniture. on their lawns they also protest inside the capitol even though congress wants to pretend that there's no crisis out there and re president obama wants to pretend that he's solved it the fact of the matter is it's just as bad and it's not getting
10:06 am
better deborah phillips told her daughters it was president obama they were here for they think they're here for the white house that's all they've been talking about saying obama but. i guess that we're not trying to let them understand it's a struggle shared by everyone here in varying degrees we've been struggles with paying our bills we had to take our son out of private school and i'm actually doing it for my dad he can come here i'm from my family members passed away and that's why we. went over a thousand miles higher than it started a last hope in an economy still in peril reporting in washington christine for south r.t. well filmmaker danny schechter believes that thousands of simply rejected from president obama's mortgage aid program as the bias of too much say as to who qualifies. i was in atlanta with the naacp. for closure effort there
10:07 am
to try to help people and you know twenty five thousand people showed up there they've been showing up around the country precisely because the government programs are not working something like five hundred thousand people have been thrown off the government program because they don't meet various criteria as a consequence only a small relatively small percentage of those facing foreclosure are being helped at all and when we say helped means that their mortgages are modified either the interest level is reduced or the in some way the terms of payment are made more affordable for people but by and large the services so-called mortgage servicers who work with the banks are really controlling the process the government is not imposing rules here they're not really offering debt relief to people as they do to people in other countries so we have a situation where the foreclosure crisis could lead to a million new foreclosures this year and still to come here on our view the world
10:08 am
through inspiration. oh. but it seems that the relations between russia and iran are rapidly heading downhill president mahmoud ahmadinejad has accused dmitri mid-year there for being a spokesman for the enemies of iran within the insisted terror and wants to continue its friendship with moscow but he claimed russia's recent statements on iran's nuclear program were quote an advert for america's propaganda drama russia and iran have long been political and economic partners however recently moscow backed u.s. proposed sanctions against iran the west fears the country's working on nuclear weapons but are on insists it's only pursuing a peaceful and joining me now to discuss the issue is political analyst from the
10:09 am
institute of world economy and international relations here in russia of moscow hello vladimir so why do you think the president we're going to judge has turned suddenly so aggressively towards my. well i would like to say that first of all this is a very emotional reaction on behalf of providing the president this is not the first reaction in the past. but i don't president has made such public statements about. warnings to moscow that. the relations between moscow and. iran could worsen but i mean that the real reason behind those statements is that the iranian president is afraid that he will lose the more school support in the future in the crucial question of the new crop brought them so i think this is another warning to more school that moscow should more aid from the course of
10:10 am
supporting iraq ok so you've said that somewhat similar statements have been said by this in the past in the past coming out from tehran but talk to me more about the. what kind of impact do you think these statements will have on the relationship between russia and iran as a whole. well i think that realistically speaking i don't think that the russian ranya relations will deteriorate significantly because we still have a very big economic cooperation with our way to. the bullshit atomic power project is going to be completed. probably next landfall in the autumn so i don't think that there will be drastic sending all the economic relations as well as political relations between iran and the russian federation so as you were saying earlier bit of an emotional outburst out of tehran but why did a judge has personally attacked president here they're calling him a spokesman for the enemies of iran do you expect any response to this. well
10:11 am
i think that probably president but there will express it he's a regret over at least emotional statements but i don't suppose that there will be the very strong reaction on behalf of moscow towards iranian statements because moscow is still thinking that iran will actually. be negotiating the you know nuclear program and moscow is still holding that there and we'll be listening to the voices of reason and that's why i don't think that the reaction of the harbor most will be very strong ok so so for you the the future relationship between moscow and tehran looks rather good because at the at the end of the day there are some strong economic arguments economic terms that are still in effect of the motorcycle from the institute of world economy and international relations thank you. well women in
10:12 am
a stone face the highest gender pay gap in the entire european union according to a new report they earn an average of thirty percent less. than their male counterparts and with most politicians turning a blind eye to the problem women are often too scared to speak out against inequality. today the sun is shining on olga it's a break from a hard working life earning money to raise her son but as a single mom she has to swear to town to the factory just to bring in a meager pay packet just grabs its thirty three degree celsius in their workshop but our employees don't care if you try to stand up for your rights they'll point you to the door if you don't like it here you're free to leave it's very hard to find a job here and is telling you therefore to put up with working in slave like conditions dystonia has one of europe's worst pay gaps between men and women studies say women get paid seventeen percent less than men on average but in a stone year it's as much as thirty percent people think that we don't have the
10:13 am
problem is that there is there where ness of the problem and and the problem that people don't have their gender lenses how to say. when there is an equality going on. it goes much further than wages so-called segregation in the economy means women often remain in lower paid jobs like health care and education while men dominate the more lucrative private sector experts say that's not just on third it's bad for business if for example a concrete to a woman feels that she cannot do the job or cannot take up the career that she would lie and she she has a talent for that and of course this is some human resource loss to their cause there also appears to be an ethnic dimension but as soon as large russian minority receiving low pay the merest ternium counterparts and ethnic russian women come out
10:14 am
bottom of the list it's a structural a show in the labor market. that. russia. speaking we mean the they are perhaps working in the sectors where the pages where the wages are especially low and this where of course increase. the pay gap even more whether it's in the city or gender stereotypes that are being identified as one of the root causes of inequality in green latitudes of what to see as the proper roles mon women should perform passed down through generations the government says it's trying to weed them out but it's going to take time. i would submit. the problems there is no point of. hiding the problems that your country faces it is a lengthy process and. and the certitude of people to not change overnight. are all good though it's simply a case of double standards. but there was this international i think if our prime
10:15 am
minister was peed myself even if he didn't have to pay the utilities i don't think it would last him a week. children and parents are enjoying the summer sun behind me but for many estonian women it's a rare luxury and with gender stereotypes dying hard it could be years before stoning women catch up with their male counterparts tom barton r.t. to live in a stone near. we're coming to you live from the russian capital this is our let's check out some other stories now making headlines from all around the world and north korea has escalated its threatened response to a joint u.s. south korean military exercises this weekend john young says it's prepared to use a nuclear deterrent it is the latest in a series of threats from the isolated nation following an international report that blamed the north for sinking a southern water in march something's going strongly denies trying to criticize their plan wargame warning against any action which might exacerbate regional
10:16 am
tensions. three people have been killed and thousands of homes destroyed by a powerful typhoon in southern china it comes just days after severe flooding in the area claiming around ten lives the typhoon weakened into a tropical storm before moving north forecasters say further rain and possible landslides are expected across the country during this week. activists have clashed with israeli soldiers near hebron in the west bank the protesters were angered at being unable to access their land off the paths near german jewish settlements were blocked by soldiers israeli troops used tear gas to disperse the group but injuries were reported. and the visually impaired woman was lucky to escape with only minor injuries after falling in front of an approaching train into the us state of georgia was captured on a security camera the woman failed to spot the edge of the platform and fell onto
10:17 am
the tracks the train came to a halt just feet from where she lay. well it may be the stuff of horror movies but returning from the dead is also the hope of a few with a bit of cash to spare a clinic in russia is offering clients the chance to put their brains and bodies on ice until science advanced enough to let them outsmart the grim reaper. visit it was the only facility of us type outside the united states. that's just unknown put death on ice in the science fiction film demolition man freezing his body to be awakened in the future. and more than a decade later must go by what is laughable is it simply to have his memory talent on earth and his mind heaven can wait what i did to my parents had a mixed reaction to this my mom thinks it's
10:18 am
a stupid waste of money most of my friends support me in this decision because they are also prove cry on it. he's paying thirty thousand dollars to have his body stored after he dies at the crew's clinic near moscow which freezes human for the hopes of future thirty taishan it's the only the city of its kind outside the u.s. and so far it can explain any count stands for and the head of aid refrigerating gas are stored in this liquid nitrogen fills of that cracker with says it can't make any promises but this might just be a way to get paid to farm life if science catches up with imagination will be transferred to new bodies the cost of a simple brain freeze is ten thousand dollars even if we can't reverse this suspected animation right now if we can preserve the structure of the information about the course and then we can still put pressure revive him in the future while some in the scientific community support investing in cloud gen x. they believe major advances in the field are
10:19 am
a long way off controlling the fine process is a major challenge but nothing compared to bringing someone back to lie. the problem at hand is resuscitation it's biological death and irreversible derangement. but if the future can bring this lazarus of the icebox back to life what does he hope to do here that my immediate goal is to fly somewhere to a star closest to us. for vengeance law and investment and what seems impossible today may be worthwhile and many tomorrows stacy didn't r.t. . well an international than skate design festival is taking place for the fifth time in the central russia event brings together designers and architects from around the world to exchange ideas and inspire each other to even greater achievements as a surf earth has been seeking inspiration from installations. this is one of my particular favorites at the moment this is one of the installations that's part of
