possible w t o membership were also discussed. it's five pm in moscow this is our to coming to you live on the snow way with our top story a disgraced former russian military officer and nationalist movement icon has been shot dead here in moscow's during the dawn of had spent eight years in prison for kidnapping and killing a chechen teenage girl officials on the scene of his murder however don't believe it was an act of revenge but an attempt to ignite ethnic tensions are just peter all over has the latest details. putdown of a hugely controversial figure here in russia the hunt being a highly decorated military officer the commander of a time great german during the second chechen war he was stripped of all of those those owners following his two thousand and three conviction for the abduction and
killing of an eighteen year old chechen woman now he remains in prison and till late two thousand and nine when he was released on parole around twelve o'clock day here in central moscow as busy busy streets in the center of the russian capital he was gunned down just behind me this through an archway there in the courtyard of a department police are saying he was shot four times in the head the investigation of course no in its early stages but they've already said that they have found a car believed to be used by the by the killer as they call they found a gun with a silencer fitted to a vehicle was partially burned out now they are saying that the driver of that car was slavic ethnicity and they will be giving us more information on that as soon as they get it no. lawyer has said this is no way in his opinion this was a revenge killing for the for the crime he committed in in chechnya and he believes
that this is as to investigators that this is a crime to speak committed to incite hatred in the country which is taking into account donald's personality and his history the investigation's not ruling out that his murder may have been a probation there's also no evidence that one or another ethnic group was behind the killing. done of was viewed in some circles in russia in some nationalist groups in far right groups as a hero an iconic figure for what he did during the chechen war you know we have to wait and see if there will be any response from those organizations or to be any protests but yes it does appear that this has what we're hearing from the best gaiters and from the tunnels. this being done to provoke a reaction from most of those groups and to incite. tensions in the country. peter over there reporting from the crime scene well it's
a political analyst for the a notice to news agency says despite the fact van i've had strong support among ultra nationalists it's unlikely his murder will trigger a violent response the story is very complicated first where was this story with the church of your presumably q why would one of their. friend of the who represent the interests or the family of the girl was killed in most call very much in their way will done was killed now so it would be. nice when mists would be people from extremist and a nationalist organizations with each but all with the mother the war and the cable was at least. there can be a lot of versions what i'm sure about is that there will be no nationalist backlash because there are very few people who identify with who don't or there was a trial and people who supported him i would see it in particular why it's your most a person it was rather
a protest against. which was serene in the liberal most media at the moment people must media. you were here before the trial so there were some people who sympathized with him. i don't think we're going to see a huge back question at all because he treated not identify with a bulldog. but from moscow you're with are two still to come through in the program top level and top secret of the world's most influential figures sit together at a meeting of the secretive builder bird group giving people money to speculate on just what they're talking about. and a new voice on america's airwaves voice of russia radio launches offices in new york and washington with a gold result listeners with perspectives left out by mainstream media. but first nato is deliberately targeting the libyan leader colonel gadhafi that's according to media reports quoting the alliance a senior military official he says the u.n.
resolution justifies the action because its head of the military gadaffi is an essential part of the command structure this comes as fresh air strikes and plumes of smoke over the libyan leader's compound and nearby worth repairing the world libyan rebels will get these one billion dollars in assistance money promised by donors including the us britain france as well as some arab states starting israel the notion of reports the only thing some libyans have received are injuries inflicted injuries rather inflicted by nato. has been within has. the doctors have performed any a miracle and the young girl is back home with her family she took her mother's pills to kill herself. if someone wants to kill me and i'm going to do it myself. but who wants to kill the teenager so most native city tripoli has been under constant bombardment by nato forces for three months they have been fooling around
the city with a population of around a million no one can ever say when or where the next one would land. this weekend the most intense and very idea that there have been sixteen nato airstrikes in just ten hours attacks against civilians must stop gadhafi must go and the libyan people deserve to determine their own future major has frequently claimed success and the military operation is supposed to protect civilians but the libyan government has repeatedly protested the innocent civilians happen among. the claims have not been independently very high and that one thing is clear since march nineteenth the life wouldn't really be ins has changed forever son was mother will never forget the day when her daughter preferred death for this new life my girl told me before that she thought death as it gets thing and i entered her room that day she was lying on the floor there was smoke everywhere could only see what
happened but i realized immediately he was something terrible this is not fair they told us they want a no fly zone they never said they were going to bonus he promised to protect us but instead they scare us talking about who they are. is more precise and the world no longer needs nato the second world war ended long ago and we try to live our lives from all new storage wars and always intervenes and other countries problems we're tired of war our patience is running out let us just live our life has just prolonged its operation and leave it in september that means people here face months more terror from the skies one of nature's supposed to targets gadhafi his military arsenal actually landed here in this district it didn't destroy the colonel's compound but it's almost damaged the lives of one family as you can see the building has quickly been repaired now the question is whether the people will ever recover. r t tripoli.
more updates on the violence in the middle east on our website r.t. dot com there you can also want our interview with nato secretary general anders fogh rasmussen and have your say we're asking how the example in libya should be resolved so far the vast majority nearly two thirds think nato submit its failure and withdraw significantly less people fifteen percent say things will continue the way they are in the conflict eventually ends others suggest the u.n. should send in peacekeepers came two and a minority ten percent support a ground troop operation top of the line let us know what you think are the top. syria's military has reportedly launched an operation aimed at restoring security in the rebel northern border town of just. authorities say at least one hundred twenty officers and government troops were killed there by armed groups earlier in

a good level you know we would go through how do we go to bush has given us the ability. he took a few kills a few people it's ok if he supports there is a remote control to play tour. but but but you know that's what i think is that is there is a queue of. press a's ready to resume imports of european vegetables if they you guarantee supplies are not infected by the deadly virus the move was one of the outcomes of the today russia a new summit r.t. if you continue to watch over has more from russia city of new janine overcorrect america talks for how it's. vegetables were literally on the table at the press conference the european leaders and host russian president dmitry medvedev were asked whether they had vegetables for lunch the answer was yes they had to join

a significant crew for the safety of the supply products and this is a great result of all the water still show on the international agenda where the two sides so i. russia strongly condemns nato's military intervention in libya and again calls for a peaceful resolution of the call flicks and the war which has already resulted in thousands of casualties as also seriously cheney challenge to the e.u.'s foreign policy is to talk more on those challenges today in an exclusive interview with r t we're joined by high representative of foreign affairs and security policy in the european union catherine ashton and of course the first question i asked your was only. one of the big challenges and questions is how to make sure the people of libya way in which we go. those are the assuredness of that departure is a fundamental part of moving forward in france that has been a lot to musing surrounding these twenty seventh russia e.u.

the builder group is underway in switzerland the annual event has long been shrouded in secrecy something that's given rise to a strong protest movement are to ignore and it reports on just what might be the main agenda behind closed doors this point because tell that you can see on the hill behind me is the hotel in summer it's in switzerland and it's there for the next couple of days around about one hundred fifty of the world's most powerful people will be meeting behind closed doors to discuss whatever they like it's the builder group you get of course it's the invitation only gathering of the world's most influential people attendees in the past including kings of presidents captains of industry and heads of the world's most powerful corporations media coverage of the building tall. nothing not even a list of people who be in attendance there's no publicized agenda no press releases are released either during the course of the event or at the end despite
some fairly high level media moguls going to build every single year but there are dedicated buildable watches and one of them is a man called jim tucker he says that the arab spring will be a main topic of the discussion here he says that the builder because they're looking to create and engineer and mastermind a bloody war in the middle east in order to protect the interests of israel they'll be looking to prolong that but they will be worried he says because there is increasing opposition to the war in libya in the u.s. congress so that will be worrying that another thing that they'll be talking about he says is germany stuff hard according to jim tucker and many other build about which is it is the builder both groups who will decide who the future head of the i.m.f. will be so we'll be looking in the coming weeks and months score any source of information about that in the news agenda. for more than eight decades and brought the world's largest country to listeners around the globe another force of russia has its sights set on new horizons for the first time the radio station has started
broadcasting directly from washington d.c. and new york r.t. is going to camp tuned in to find out what's there. welcome to voice of russia in washington i'm just jordan time now five o'clock in d.c. and one in moscow they launched with the motto the more voices the better the voice of russia team in washington reports on international and u.s. news just like any other news radio station they say what makes them different is there africa to bring up what's being left out by the us mainstream media when you consider american for us foreign policy has around the world i would say we are not hearing enough of people from people around the world the need for more voices in the media was up for discussion at this panel in washington titled gateway to understanding the great deal of soul searching going on in this country right now can we in are we open to voices from outside i think absolutely yes many analysts
say there is stick my guess the russian media something that voice of russia will have to fight through to become a credible source of information for the american audience and you have to work with perceptions which are still existing and i think more it is important that you raise your voice and try to get people to think differently about russia and so far i think this is extremely important to do it for years during the soviet union voice of america and if i washington had been a source of alternative information for millions of russians now in modern washer its mission as being little different to what it was during the cold war the lack of the truly alternative voice of the media has serious consequences. for them over this issue of the russian society in my opinion and it is here that the voice of america consequently feeling an important vacuum voice of russia's seems to be seeking to fill a similar information vacuum that many see in the u.s. media with its truth or a lie as it's about perspectives and i strongly believe that american audience will
only win from the array of perspectives the radio audience in america is growing. again with the demand for more voices and more perspectives and it seems a certainty that in the wake of the voice of russia all the foreign stations will be launched than the ones who really benefit from the writing in the media are always the viewers and the listeners i'm going to check our reporting from washington r.t. . and in just over ten minutes we'll have more for you on how media outlets in the u.s. are run as a quick preview of broadcast and lose. it was created to serve the public interest. and to entertain. these days there's nothing easier than opening a new media outlet but there is nothing harder than revoking its license in case of corruption. when jurors were. standing. in front.
