2:06 pm
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 to see when there is an inequality going on. yet 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 inferred it's bad for business if for example a concrete to woman feels that she cannot to 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 corner there also appears to be an ethnic dimension with this journey as large russian minority receiving lower pay the nearest only in counterparts and ethnic russian women come out bottom of the list it's a structural
2:07 pm
a show in the labor market. that. it's a russian speaking we mean the they are perhaps working in the sectors where the pages where the wages are especially low and this. of course increase. their pick up even more whether it's over it's in the city or gender it's stereotypes that have been identified as one of the root causes of inequality in green latitudes of what to seen as the proper roles mon women should perform a 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 for all good though it's simply a case of double standards. i think if our prime minister was peed myself
2:08 pm
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. stonier. if you move seeking inspiration from the installation of. the four we've been taking on more on the wild side finding out how a group of bought together and. roaring engines and music is shaking the ukrainian city of sevastopol only one international bike show gets into gear there this year's festival of the expected guest revving up the action to train as over was their first. one thing can be said for certain about
2:09 pm
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 the 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 any 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 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 them 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 there are of course. today but on the whole bikes and widely available and it's
2:10 pm
possible to say soon. is the most courageous adventurous and the fastest means of transport and what's most important it gives the owner of the bike the 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 days in the crimean sun by the lake just have some fun enjoy each other's company and this year was and it was one of those who shared that freedom and that joy with them of course in the 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 up. of the russian navy which the craniums and the russians according
2:11 pm
to him 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. 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 to watch the parade to take part in the festivities all in all a very happy occasion in making his mark left just the way he came on a bike. from mr enjoyed his day of the. service the dream of the business with ukraine's president. and the latest show of the ever improving relations between the two countries. seems relations though between russia and iran are rapidly heading downhill president mahmoud ahmadinejad has accused me to my advantage of being a spokesman for the enemies of iran and we didn't as yet insisted to our wants to
2:12 pm
continue with friendship with moscow but he claimed that 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 back to u.s. proposed sanctions against iran and the west fears the country's working on nuclear weapons but around insists it's only pursuing peaceful energy. for the mosque and state university of international relations believes with his latest statement the iranian president's simply trying to score points so when the radical population of the country. i think that behind such aggressive rhetoric there is a desire to unite the section of the iranian society he relies on this section is not conservative but rather militaristic and i'm a dinner doesn't reject any tools to reach his goals he blames western countries russia he blames some arabic countries for conspiring against the islamic republic
2:13 pm
but the next time he could say that everything's fine in relations with his partners. for several years i'm a degenerate has been using the same tactics of aggressive rhetoric and despite all the protests on the streets of tehran he is still in power the methods he uses in foreign policy help him to stay in office. with more thoughts of the story of the coffs from the institute of world economy and international relations here in moscow he believes despite the harsh comments toward russia the kremlin will still insist on dialogue. i don't think that the russian reality on the relations will deteriorate significantly because we still have a very big economic cooper ration with a wider audience and the bush era tonic power project is going to be completed. probably next landfall in the north and so i don't think that there will be drastic was ending all very economic relations as well as political relations between iran
2:14 pm
and the russian federation i don't see it suppose that there will be the very strong reaction on behalf of moscow towards iran even statements because moscow is still thinking that iran will actually be negotiating the iranian nuclear program and prosperous the whole thing got there and we'll all 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. it may be the stuff of horror movies returning from the dead these are also a dream for the clinic in russia is offering clients the chance to put their brains and bodies on ice until science advances enough to let them outsmart the grim reaper r.t. states bivins visited what is the only facility of its time outside the u.s. . so that's just all known put death on ice in the science fiction film demolition

2:16 pm
to new bodies the cost of a simple brain freeze is ten thousand dollars even if we can reverse that emotion 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 a scientific community support investing in cryogenics they believe major advances in the field are a long way off controlling the thawing process is a major challenge but nothing compared to bring someone back to life. 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. my immediate goal is to fly somewhere to a star closest to us. for that islam and. investment in what seems impossible today may be worthwhile and many tomorrow students are. will be using brief now at least fifteen people have been crushed to death in
