a speech at the. international the economic forum before him at present gave his keynote speech where the theme was very much about modernization but that more on this let's cross to you and he saw no way he was following a forum for us so what do you make of what the two leaders have said so far. but you said it right down and focused on modernization this has been the trademark really up to his presidency he wants russia to modernize quickly and you start off by saying that you think it needs to also start happening at the lowest levels that society has to have the desire to modernize russia a lot of c.e.o.'s hear of innovative companies start ups like google eric schmidt is here and it's expected that resumes it will be meeting with these people that really know how to do that and trying to get ideas from them also for spoke about
the russian economy and laid out what you thought it's through certain needs to look like and that began with him speaking about the fight against rocks and it's no secret which problem. he began by saying that he thinks that corruption is literally choking russian economy and so that's something that he has laid out for a client to deal with and that. volves government reform that's going to begin with trying to decentralize power throughout the russian government we have a section of it is speech that speaks about modernization he sees russia's future economy let's listen. but surely we can change the situation for the better quality of the next two years it is for that purpose will be the following objectives dramatically improve the investment and entrepreneurial environment for the purpose of creating highly productive workplaces in all of the regions of the country for good quality progress in fighting corruption creating
more police and other one force new structures and improving the efficiency of the judicial system and finally more denies the government itself betting into each. project based approaches and decentralizing different. course with more on that important for later on throughout the day here at r.t. . well to other world news now the u.s. president is under fire from congress over the campaign in libya which is continuing the spike that's having approval of lawmakers barack obama has rejected accusations that the boys being broken mean that there was only playing a supporting role through nato which makes it legal. as more. u.s. lawmakers are saying that president obama has to either stop waging war in libya or ask for congressional approval the lawmakers claim that the military action will violate the nine hundred seventy three war powers resolution if it does not and by
friday and they mean this friday ninety days after the intervention began under the u.s. constitution to wage a long term war the president needs to get authorization from congress and only say the obama administration will certainly find a way to get around the requirements by referring to his right as commander in chief. as well as certain legal speech you know up to this day the administration has refused to say war when it comes to their actions in revia they call it kinetic military action but as a result of that kinetic military actions of unions are bombed every day a group of international observers is now in tripoli including the former u.s. congresswoman cynthia mckinney we spoke with her a few days ago she said be heard and they counted eighty nine blasts in just one day those are civilian neighborhoods eighty nine bombs dropped in just one day there is a lot of concern that the voices of those who are caught up in that who are in
tripoli go unnoticed in the international community but here in the grass it seems the voices of the majority of americans those who oppose the u.s. military involvement in libya also go unnoticed by the white house the administration continues to stress the good cause that they pursuing leiby a but suddenly say the administration also seems to be in denial when it comes to the will of their own people regarding the issue as well as constitutional procedures legal experts say there is not much congressman can do to force the president to comply at least with the u.s. constitution because there are ways to get around ways to your problem administrative seems to be using extensively most congressman now criticize president obama for as they say ignore in congress the capitol hill observers say it's mostly political games that the lawmakers are playing to score points by snubbing the president come the day to actually vote the majority of them will vote for more military spending as they always do but there is a small bipartisan group of congressmen ten people in it who went further than
verbal rebukes and they sued president obama on the grounds that he's violating the constitution but everybody here knows that the lawsuit is certain to be dismissed on procedural grounds because the u.s. supreme court has determined that the members of congress do not have standing to file such a suit and this is where it hits a dead end that it makes anyone. whether or not rice lawmakers actually have the capacity to affectively represent the people. of washington's credibility and a future of the nato campaign could be fatally damaged if congress forced barack obama to abandon operations off the table swansong says the problem is that there is political confusion over exactly what's happening in libya. but supporters make that the war powers act does not apply much less the constitution because this is neither a war nor hostilities this is something else this is
a military operation that doesn't rise to the level of hostilities which is absolutely absurd the war powers act was written in one nine hundred seventy three a very intentionally and clearly to encompass all military engagement simply imminent threats are still of these our mission and then it's percentage was debating former lawyer from the reagan white house he was defending obama and he asked this guy twice never got any answer if there were two thousand and missions over the united states by a foreign nation and many of them were dropping bombs would there be war with the hostilities he could have gotten congress to authorize war in libya it would have been quite easily done he could've done it in the sixty day gap after he started the war he chose not to presidents want and this president is no exception but the power to make wars on your own. a u.s. a judge has called the case against their russian gunner a week to boot unconvincing and the prosecution's accusations. of something that
france consumption honors and a consummate federal judge said she didn't see much evidence against but he's currently awaiting trial you were present facing charges of smuggling arms to colombian rebels accusations he denies it was arrested in the two thousand and eight american sting operation rather and later extradited to the u.s. . for the businesses. and welcome to the business person here on r t we start with one of the most important russian economic events of the year this in petersburg international
economic forum. the city of lights in petersburg has always been called russia's window to europe but with the economic forum underway it's become the window to the whole world. all eyes are on russia's cooperation with china now its largest trading partner the two sides are discussing a landmark gas deal that would enable russia to deliver almost seventy billion cubic meters of gas to beijing within thirty years the price remains the main sticking point but russian presidential aide arkady dvorkovich still believes a deal could soon be struck. because some problems in the thesis of the last couple of weeks. so we'll see that they were the promise of for sufficient thaw in the middle of the u.s. that the car is of support on the surface by little rock and so patience certainly
