in business we take a look at what's holding a russia's burgeoning internet economy back join me for the full business bulletin and around twenty minutes star. of the russian capital watching r.t.m. arena joshua all kinds of program now we turn to the nine hundred sixty seven borders that's the latest word from the israeli prime minister in reaction to the u.s. president's peace initiative addressing the powerful pro israel lobby in washington benjamin netanyahu repeated he's asserting that such a move will undermine the country's security declare the nine hundred sixty seven borders it sounds simple several times after barack obama suggested a peace settlement should be based on these lines after israeli criticism by u.s. president has assured the jewish state of american support and stress the new
borders will have to accommodate the reality on the ground where human rights lawyer says washington's change of rhetoric doesn't bring a peace deal any closer. or he spoke on thursday is. basically said that. he wants to negotiate from the pre nine hundred sixty seven borders with lance wops which already assumes that there would be a recognition of the settlements that exist and that the settlements wouldn't go anywhere this spike their equal status under international law but notice that it is apec address he doesn't say anything different he says that they will not be the one nine hundred sixty seven borders because of land swaps land swaps means no return to sixty seven borders but in the surrounding settlements that are illegal around jerusalem will become facts on the ground as israel has once it is trying to make reality with the creation of an addict nation wall when in fact the basic premise in international law firm the one nine hundred forty nine armistice line as the line along which a palestinian state should be built that said i think that it becomes really
irrelevant anyway to discuss this because basically what is at the table would be u.s. is offering to the palestinians is not sovereignty or statehood but there are various offering in the state where they have some sort of autonomy in two stuns very similar to black townships in south africa or reservations here in the united states unable to make a breakthrough with peace talks in the middle east gone is continuing his european tour the presidents in london on his first visit to the u.k. were he will attend meetings with both the prime minister and the queen of pressure and then you can run on matters such as the european missile defense shield and against you and in turn the cameras hoping the president will endorse his kind of spending cuts reports now from the british capital. president obama will be staying here at buckingham palace as a guest of the queen while he and prime minister david cameron plan to establish closer security ties between britain and the u.s.
the idea is to create a joint national security strategy for it is a unique arrangement in which the u.s. will open up its highly secretive national security council to u.k. officials and it comes at a time when both countries admit they weren't prepared for the uprisings in the middle east and north africa it might not be easy though u.s. still says this a britain cutting defense spending could tom its cooperation with the u.s. and the two sides have been divided over libya with the u.s. more reticent about its involvement than britain mice of like they'll also be talking about afghanistan and the u.s. will be trying to persuade the british army not to pull troops out later this year both countries see two thousand and fifteen as the target date for withdrawing troops terrorism old to be on the agenda with the us asking the u.k. to support its tough line on pakistan on hold during terrorists and to bomb it will be asking cameron to do more to combat british muslim extremism the us will all say
oh it's question to reassure russia about the sizing of the missile defense shield in poland only know the so-called special relationship between the us that g u k is far from over whatever that means to the rest of the world's or am of reporting there and coming up in the program drug dealers in the russian capital are last seen ransom. this is house of moscow activists are trying to stop the madness threaten the country with waterproofed i. find out why a vigilante is are taking these drastic measures and whether it's even legal. thousands of protesters have been rallying for several days now in georgia was a goal to overthrow president. the opposition has vowed to take radical action by wednesday saying that the currency must go by then russia has condemned the dispersal of demonstrations with tear gas and rubber boards saying it violates
fundamental human rights opposition parties claim early elections are used to stop what they are calling a criminal regime leading the country to disaster itself this really has fallen quote absolutely ruled out any early polls nevertheless the main opposition leader you know we're denouncing told it's not if people will continue to protest even if the government. we have got a good atmosphere here fighting for. everything angel i can include being from the film just these look a lot of me we don't want to leave a little bit of the country i know that they haven't made easy to use any kind of work that they will be share big easy solutions you feel it lets them to sit like that. she it is a shame i know they do it with equal yet again very seriously face fight that you can't which is coming from the site that maybe every day every media are receiving it at nations because the work is heavy that even if it is meant as
a let's get this job. in people's. lives have achieved i will give a shit if the case then. i did it in a should really be effective i think elections into it according to political experts. policies are not popular in georgia and he's already losing support among his alliance. this support of saakashvili has diminished drastically for several reasons well firstly the war was not that much for your ear in spite of the fact that while georgian population i'm not speaking even about georgian elite is not pro russian the result of the war or not satisfactory for the for georgia secondly. the this economic situation the country is not is not good because in the beginning of his presidency the support of the west of the european union and the
united states was rather big now it has diminished for several reasons again well there was crisis but also the policy of saakashvili is not wise and it is not that much supported in the west so while we may force either. through the group of he is supporters will diminish and it will diminish drastically in the next few days it may be just part of the lead just the power of the opposition is growing. it was an r.t. and still have a sour back on terra firma. free clue from the international space station have landed safely because it's time join us for all the details of mission control in moscow and. they faced it this is not a provocation but warned. the forces that we should use the stairs are you sure the critic three strikes they have no idea about the hardships the group face. plate one it is this is it is all of
wealthy british style. markets. find out what's really happening to the global economy with much stronger a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune in to the report on our. russian authorities are stepping off the war on drugs in the country but for some the speed of progress just isn't fast enough now activists are taking the fight
into their own hands but it's landing some of them in trouble was a law however the vigilantes say the ends justify the means to help save lives and often reports. it said all is fair in love and war and perhaps even more say in the war on drugs drugs that kill two point five million people every year across the globe and almost two hundred fifty maimed women and youngsters every day in russia alone some are fighting their own control virtual battle against the threat tasers customers they arranged to meet alleged drug dealers and once you satisfy this suspect is a drug pusher they serve them a black mark and leave them red faced. people have to know their enemies will be like this people will be free to go out because the next time police may be there. these guys are not alone in rushing there and conventional methods of fighting
against drugs their colleagues from the drug free city movement have been accused of torturing addicts after they used handcuffs to force them to kick their habit they've also marks drug dealers houses to shame them in the community. it is our uprising against the drug dealers do you think it's better to sit at home and watch how the drug dealers will be killing you we managed to unite our forces and declare war to the drug dealers. sociologists a mob just as occurs when people become disillusioned by official efforts at the public taking the law into its own hands is an unwelcome trend growth in the north of the border there are a lot of enthusiastic who are striving to eradicate this horrible evil by any means possible when their actions don't comply with the law the law is against them for sure we can eradicate this evil but only by legal methods there are over five million drug users in morden russia this number has almost doubled in the last
decade alone vast amounts of money has been blown on reducing drug demand and treating addicts persisted edge is getting more and more gloomy. this is how some moscow activists of trying to stop the menace threaten the country with waterproof dye they mark do as they say will have to hide to the public for at least three weeks some are skeptical about their methods are others even accuse them of hooliganism but the antidrug juventus argue their form of justice is worth it if it helps save at least one life. r t moscow well most of the heroin used by addicts in russia is trafficked from ghana stan in pakistan r.t. caught up with islamabad's and drugs chiefs to find out what's being done to stay on their current straight. people are just happy with the conferences
they're in this campaign because it is the easier part of the thing done you have been talking about it all over the world in all the conferences if you were to head this menace it is the same thing as said if he could catch a thief you have to wait informants and pay them and this thing will go down on you hit hard and that is what we are doing and the support that comes from the international community is the countries which are destined for this drug are feeling the heat of the mush who thinks more emphatically and then nothing in order for ever numbers which is not happening at all i am blaming the international community not for doing enough if unity c. had been there for about fifty is the question is has it reduced the drug it hasn't in the united states of america did in a while its time for the last and most immunity of the so much of forces as it greatly reduced the drugs production did it has not so what can pakistan alone do
on the second. i need to watch the full interview with the head of pakistan's a drug force in just over an hour's time here on our team. the libyan capital has awoken to the heaviest nato shelling there since the beginning of the international campaign tripoli reports three people were killed and dozens injured during twenty minutes of strikes the main target appears to be his compound nato aircraft have been firing on tripoli almost every night and attempts to destroy the military arsenal of the libyan leader the way this attack comes as friends new pain ounce they're seeking to deploy helicopters to escalate their strike power. syria has hit back at sanctions imposed on president bashar asad by the european union saying it will harm the syrian people european ministers have frozen assets assets and banned him from entering the e.u. the sanctions were in response to the violent crackdown on anti-government protests
in syria he rights activists say over eight hundred people have been killed and thousands arrested since the uprisings began in march the same meeting the e.u. also tied in measures against iran to pressure it to abandon its nuclear program meanwhile the u.s. is also impose sanctions on the syrian president calling on him to leave the transition to democracy however middle east experts are seeing believe that one goes far as the u.n. resolution similar to that imposed on. syria is a much more complicated case because there are some other more important political actors in the region involved so i think a u.n. resolution is much further down the line if at all obviously i mean we have first israel we have lebanon we have you run involved it's also a question of. the people that might take over there is the internal dynamics of having religious minority in a sense being in control of the state and the other whites on their president bush
. and what will happen to them if there is a sudden swing in any other direction basically the you can say that there is a certain inherent logic to sanctioning countries and. actually start to improve in a way to reward would be to remove sanctions or you would basically continue trying to. and by pressure and in the case of iran we are just continuing that kind of path regardless of what's happening in syria the latest sanctions particular ones the deal with iran's economy that is cutting it off from the financial system if you will of the world is having an effect on the ringgit society and economy at large but they were put in place primarily in order to affect iran's ability to acquire the nuclear capability that might and the need for weapon and on that particular aspect i think they haven't had much of an effect yet. now let's take a look at some other stories from around the world in the ash cloud from dropping icelandic is causing further disruption to air travel some flights remain grounded in scotland while the threat hangs over services in ireland and england it's called
