3:11 am
really going to make a lot of tension on the global scale and so it we should be wise and just start thinking about building security mechanisms and structures that will include all the big superpowers not just. moscow has asked for legal guarantees that the proposed missile to fancy old won't be aimed at its nuclear capabilities so far the u.s. and nato have refused to provide them russia's and void to the alliance says the project seems more of a threat to security rather than a reassurance. because of books which you do the security of an individual or state consists of two parts the first is the guarantee given by law by the state the other participant mentioned by a person's actions to provide his or her own security the same applies to what's the more real guarantees we get from our partner the less will do to provide security and vice versa i believe the missile defense project in the way it's presented now is very provocative and unjust it can be useful and fear only if

3:18 am
a fair trial from the country she says violated international and bilateral laws to get him. it's clear to everyone that the case has long been moved from the sphere of want to politics i think or rather i would love to think that the american court is unbiased but i have strong doubts about it because i think such pressure could be put on anyone including the jury. the country accusing victor boot of our dealing now finds itself a political arm twisting come october an american jury will decide picked a future to be a political pressure at your side by the u.s. army evidently the arena point nine r.t. new york. take a look at some other stories from around the world al qaeda second in command has become its leader according to a statement allegedly issued by the organization models are wary is believed to have been the operational brains behind the nine eleven attacks

this far as the eye can see it's one for all and all for one every human sent there to work wherever they come from is a vital link in the chain of survival on thomas went to antarctica to see international relations at their best. in the icy waters of the antarctic this research vessel was damaged in some very rough seas going to sea is never easy it always involves risk we ran into a storm and had some trouble with our rudder so we came into this choice for a base where we're having but your lands fly and parts and where the russian bases offered help and other bases around of offered any help that's the kind of international cooperation that we get me antarctica which we may not get in other places because of its remoteness and because all countries that are here recognize the importance of all the work that we all do here working together is vital for the survival of those at the different international stations as well in the winter
3:21 am
medical evacuations are impossible because of the weather conditions. and a lot of this it is very important to cooperate without a stations where different doctors here with different specialties so we complement each other for example my main specialty is orthopedics trauma i'm the only one here as you can imagine my specialty is in high demand here therefore neighbors get in touch with me quite often we also ask on neighbors to help us with diagnostic devices we don't have one of the areas where cooperation between countries is strongly evident is in the realm of scientific research where ideas and information are exchanged regularly so that multiple projects can benefit for example we're working right now with the germans who are further down the peninsula doing a survey and we will combine our data with their data at the camera meeting we also work closely with the british and provide any other help with scientific investigators that come aboard our ship to conduct their search their studies as well as well you hear two different dive teams discuss how they can share

3:24 am
welcome live to st petersburg where the russian answer to davos the st petersburg international economic forum is underway right now more than a thousand attendees from dozens and dozens of companies are here in st petersburg looking at the economic potential of russia among the big themes that we have going on here are russia's a session to the world trade organization and the efforts in order to complete that and also the creation of a state backed private equity fund with about ten billion dollars worth in it in order to foster innovation in russia and to bring more business and economic activity to russia and the former c.e.o.'s countries also another big aim of this it is not only to reach out to the west to the west and western companies in order to do business here but also look to look eastwards as well china is going to be a major player in this conference in fact along with president dmitry medvedev
3:25 am
chinese president hu jintao was also scheduled to be here as well and while i hear they're going to be working out the final details of a gas deal between china and russia right now to talk more about all this and to talk more about the general economic situation and what's going on here in st peter's averred i am joined by nicholas jordan c.e.o. of u.b.s. in russia and the former c.e.o. is countries thank you very much for joining me here so just tell me so far what are your impressions of the conference of what do you hoping to accomplish here well i think it's very impressive set up. i think it's probably the premier. forum in which the business community can meet each other as well as the political elite and discuss both the things that are happening today as well as the way forward very good now since president medvedev took office diversifying the economy he said has been one of his primary goals how far do you think progress has come on that i think there's been some progress i don't. it's enough and personally i think the
3:26 am
actually the government also believes that it's not that the job is not complete. they have done some good things like you like they've established kolkata they have asked for politicians to leave the boards of various companies they have extensive privatisation program they've established the fund that you're talking about that would look for edward investments so they've done some things but there's more to do right now russia seeing heavy capital outflow in the last ten years despite strong oil prices and despite commodities prices being high why do you think the money is leaving russia and you think it's a risk for the country. well i think that if it continues long term probably give us. some of that this diversification some of that is technical with various mergers and acquisitions moving things are sure off shore and things of that nature but obviously some of that is money that should stay at home while moving abroad and i think that's a trick that is where the government needs to to concentrate its efforts to create
3:27 am
a long holy environment in the pension industry for me to be. insurance companies life side of their business his minute mutual funds and other things you know you're not going to create you're not going to bring companies to list in russia if there is no longer money in russia they're going to go where the money is and right now that's in london hong kong and new york and in terms of your money in russia how does that go and what are the u.b.s. plans and what is the general vision for the way forward here but we're very optimistic and positive it's a large country with a large population a very substantial near abroad if we can call it that. we believe there is progress being made in diversifying the economy there's going to be opportunities in respect to that companies new companies are rising all the time they need to raise capital that's what we do best we do it globally and we believe we could do that here and do you think russia's assertion to the w t o is something. that is going to happen
3:28 am
is going to help the country in terms of bringing foreign business i think i think it's a positive i think it will happen and it's inevitable that it does happen but i think some of some of the benefits will be at the margin but it's another step in joining the global community international committee of the league financially politically and otherwise and so it's a positive step very good and what do you think will actually what actions do you think the country can intake in terms of things like this forum at such trip to encourage more foreign business and investment but i think it contributed effort to address i guess the three major concerns of the international community which are a stable illegal a violent a more a better understanding of property rights and you know the general political stability which i think in fact is being addressed in a positive way all right very good thank you very much for your time nicholas during the c.e.o. of u.b.s.
3:29 am
