are you watching r.t. well live from moscow welcome to the program we start in libya where nato is keeping up its heaviest yes bombardment of the capital since airstrikes began in march it continued into wednesday morning with warplanes hitting tripoli more than sixty times government representatives claim the latest bombs killed thirty one people convert after rains defiance in the face of nato is raids growing he will never surrender libyan state t.v. broadcast an audio address in which he denounced the kurdish rebels meanwhile attention is growing between nato commanders and libyan opposition in benghazi the rebel leaders accuse the allies of taking the initiative and once it is essentially a people's uprising russia's special envoy is in the regular headquarters on a peace mission to transfer dialogue with aaa to take libya forward. for national
is following a visit. the russian special presidential envoy mccomb arguello is now here in leverage to try to mediate in the civil war that has lasted for months already and has already claimed many many allies including innocent civilians we seriously think that airstrikes never sold political problems and we said it here very clearly that as long as the bloodshed continues the longer it continues the more difficult it will be to build a national reconciliation process off to the civil war so we are very much in the sleeve or of building political bridges so to speak and we are ready to help that comes fall when president medvedev said on soon after the g eight meeting in france that's colonel gadhafi has lost its legitimacy and should step down no one can predict how successful this special peace mission of the russian federation will be
here in libya but one thing is clear that will definitely not be easy because of his government has repeatedly strongly rejected the possibility of a colonel gadhafi standing down while these is the major and the most important among all the radicals people who come with conditions the un and something else done something that indian nation because they are saying to the people you do not know what is good for you we are going to choose for you so if you are really interested in peace what you do is you come and see the future of libya should be decided by libyans the russian peace mediators the rival coincides with an intensification of nature as a military activity here in libya we are actually not allowed to leave the hotel where we are staying now in the center of tripoli but from here we can see and hear
that nato has intensified its strikes on the current. miter arsenault here in the states just days ago the alliance expanded its war against the could operation and the first time started using attack helicopters a mission to resist foreign secretary has declared optimist in the rebels in benghazi himself that they have operation against gadhafi here in libya could last beyond christmas rush is very concerned about this saying that nature is actions illegally are beginning to resemble a ground operation more and more this is something russia is strongly opposed to and russia has always been strongly opposed to insisting on diplomatic and political means to suffer these conflicts. reporting from the very heart of the conflict in tripoli and for the latest in what she's witnessing in. this.
one from what's happening throughout the day. in libya. in. russia says it's so determined to prevent foreign intervention in other countries in syria regime is continuing its crackdown on protesters with france leading cause of the e.u. and correction russia's foreign minister says the kremlin approves any resolution. it was in your thoughts that when it comes to the proposal to consider syria in a similar way as was applied to the libyan situation in which the security council and international community have already become bogged down we believe that diplomacy should be aimed at resolving problems politically and not to create conditions for new armed conflicts we should support a process of national reconciliation on accord and constructive peacekeeping roles for neighboring states rather than try to pass more and more resolutions which will
invite new siding with one of the parties in an internal political conflict. arab world what is insisted serious troubles are internal problems it's people by their own way but it's terrorists has written extensively on that arab spring was warning against korea has reasserted. it's a very very dangerous move by britain and france to interfere in the syrian revolution because both countries have a very long history in this region palestine lebanon and syria itself and i think it will be seen very much as western interference in the internal affairs of syria we have to remember that a revolution in the revolutionary process that is taking place in the middle east is one in which ordinary people are taken time to take control of their society and this is an internal struggle if you like for the future direction of syria and i
feel there's a sense now that france or president sarkozy of france is moving like a demon to try and. place france back in a position of power inside the middle east and i have to repeat we have to remember that france had control over syria in from the end of the first world war and there was a very very long struggle for syria to get rid of the french for independence and so the idea that this is somehow some kind of benevolent force coming in to help the syrian population i think that's very little ice so i think it's a very unwise move by the west to interfere. so the head they held back in teams who are determined to make amends india's cost groups is writing social statement making way for third place in society and short. nuclear officials from the twenty biggest economies are meeting in paris as atomic energy gets increasingly. countries and never surprises in japan germany and
switzerland to close the reactors but britain is committed to expanding its facilities and explains its meeting to security fears. the lake district famous for its quaint villages and spectacular views it's a hillwalkers paradise but one can't help wondering if people would be quite as happy as a holiday here if they knew what was right next door right on the edge of the picture escalate distrait is sellafield nuclear plants in probably it's home to the world's biggest plutonium stockpile a waste product of civilian nuclear fuel plutonium is one of the deadliest substances known to man poisonous am's convertible into new clear weapons but nuclear scientists have a plan inside these buildings they take the waste p ternium and recycle it into
a usable nuclear fuel called mox it sounds great in theory but the reality is very different there is a an existing. field. purchased a tiny fraction of what it was supposed to do and it cost an enormous amount of money cables leaked leaks the us described it as a big industrial embarrassment for the white elephant the majority of the sellafield petone e m stockpile is british but managers were so confident it would work they took plutonium from other countries promising to send it back as fuel a major customer was japan which now says it won't buy the mox. has changed the landscape because there is now a growing concern here in japan about the whole nuclear. business in particular the business in recycle. and the purpose of the locks plans of sellafield was to make
fuel that would be sent back to japan using japanese kitani and even before fukushima the p. ternium or. processing plant at sellafield was considered one of the biggest disasters in british industrial history but juicing just ten percent of its planned output huge cost but that hasn't stopped government plans for building yet another plant it could cost ten billion dollars much of it taxpayer money really getting rid of plutonium was never the purpose for. more expensive to produce it uses to make it work and it produces nuclear waste that is much more difficult to deal with for now the stockpiles here to stay posing a massive security threat when the biggest fear. is of course that stops will be targeted in some way by terrorists by crashing a craft. this enormous concern about it being used by
terrorists in some shape or form five kilograms of this material and remember we have something something approaching one hundred tons of it five kilograms of this material would make. habitable for many many years so it appears has been affected by global events recently in the wake of the killing of osama bin ladin five men were arrested taking photos here on suspicion of terrorist activities they were eventually released without charge but the incident highlighted the hazards of storing such a huge amount of deadly material sounds like a good way of getting rid of it but following there's no markets worryingly that hasn't stopped the government plans to pour billions into a second plant. sellafield cumbria. trained taxi driver. cabinet.
