very terms of a domino effect if. around for the full this is their problem and reason why are europeans are helping greece but in fact we are here pingers because they don't want is going to affect and because they want to take all very shores of greece. sixteen percent of the queen what full sun influence western economic conditions here increased the year is a dream it seems is a. people were reactors were before over. there would be a lot of violence in the streets people said that when that turning out into the streets in their millions and the government continues to push ahead with the prepays measures when they don't have to mock christie anymore the government is trying to grab people refuse to be governed in this way every day that disconnect
2:05 am
becomes more and more dangerous this very peaceful pair but the reef top stay nothing's really a world away from what's been happening on the streets recently the question a lot of people have been asking is just when will greece reach boiling point lenny when he was on the streets of athens to witness the violence that is already past that point the question a lot of people and i was seeing is really how much further does this guy. was on the streets of athens when violent protests hit the capital read all about the revolt that's been ongoing thing greece and her blog on it and i website. called. greeks face the prospect of financial cuts tax rises totaling up to twenty eight billion euro but european parliament member says it's actually banks and should be footing the bill. nobody is happy actually in the eurozone because we have had to save the banks who are ultimately to blame for what
2:06 am
has happened in the crisis of two thousand and eight the financial crisis the banks did something extremely wrong i did a lot to save themselves what we do need is make the greeks understand and i think most of them do understand that you cannot live with such a huge debts on your shoulders you have to get out of it now fortunately the greeks can raise much more taxes than they do now and they started already last year to raised two percent more taxes than they did the year before from from from thirty seven percent g. and i g a g.d.p. to thirty nine percent g.d.p. which is a huge increase in one year time it is very harsh for the greek is very difficult for the greeks but it is unavoidable and i think that's a tax on the banks which would make the burden the business a bit later for the greeks a tax on the banks in europe would be an important step a financial transaction tax with which we could we could do something for the greeks and other countries in difficulties. well there are still ahead this hour

parties which over is their first. being here inside the biggest fortress on these days seventy years after the start of the great passion war makes you also only see the visual damage to this citadel of biased the forefront of that war you can also feel that human coast of those terrible times dance from the walls of the fortress maybe you cannot see clearly behind that smoke is a living reminder about that the roches night thousands of people work buried alive on these four square kilometers on the night of the twenty second of june nineteen forty one defending the greatest or surest most but first battle for the soviet union in the great. war but it was also one of its most boy couldn't chapters the nazi invaders expected that they would capture it swiftly but instead they came up against resistance which held out for months full thousand people managed to flee

the terror trial before a truce but most of them were killed shortly after thousands others were besieged behind the fortress this was the last of the captured at the end of july nine hundred forty one though some reports even suggest that isolated resistance wasn't counselors even a month later the heroes of that battle left behind inscriptions like the one with a knife on a wall i'm dying but i want surround we're not leaving the focus. with looking back seventy years since the japanese invasion of the soviet union leading british historian dr michael jones tells r.t. it was the great patrick that helped win the war. i believe that came from was just the science and the technical side germany could very well have won it either a nine hundred forty one nine hundred forty two put it of the model extraordinary
2:10 am
determination to carry on fighting the germans. it was. some profound patrick jephson that the red army recovered from the initial crisis realized it was a battle for survival and what was that story was not just the communist system but russia was the country and the soviet union i was in the boardroom and it really did become a part of the germans they were carried away by their own successes their previous success in the blitzkrieg lightning war and they believe that if they have the right on the front two. but they are underestimated the red army and the underestimate of the soviet union and. i think you can see the full interview with dr michael johnson said to me it's time to head out. the back lot top story the death toll following a plane crash in russia's republic of korea has risen to forty five after
2:11 am
a ten year old survivor die in a hospital doctors say they were able to say that injuries were too severe so even the people remain in hospital right in their lives so you know he's at the site of the disaster. terrible time for the relatives. that's right kerry as you mentioned earlier the death toll has risen the ten year old boy who was in the hospital here there's a boy it's succumbed to his injuries and he died in the hospital that there were initially three of them who were left at local hospitals because they were too fragile to create the condition to critical for them to be flown to moscow while the other five had been flown as for the families of the victims as well as the survivors so. well there will be making their way to the site to the hospitals and the morgue today and there's a bit of a delay it's been it happened on monday it's because a lot of the family members don't actually live in moscow so they've been gathering
2:12 am
here today to be flown here it also has to be said that there were actually three ukrainians that were killed that is contrary to be your first official announcement of two hours for what's happening at the sites are locals are still coming in bringing a flowers to the side to giving their condolences we've also seen some officials laying candles and flowers on the ground here at the houses surrounding the road here where the plane actually crashed the witnesses still recovering from their own shock and experience they were in fact first on the scene. and we heard a man screaming. around to my house. in flames . and we were talking to some of those witnesses especially where the plane had actually rather be his' house was where the plane had actually allowed it in front of it and for most of
2:13 am
them the experience was harrowing the memory that they can't forget most is the fact that they were hearing cries for help at the site and so they do believe that there were more people alive actually but then there were further explosions after the initial one and they could only save as many as they could and only eight had survived initially and now seven are still alive in hospital. turning to the investigation of the main. course it's still very early in the investigation what the statements that have been made are based on the physical evidence as you can see behind me this is actually the forest where the plane had come through and hit some of the treetops there still working. on the site behind me so based on the the statements made saying that there was a low visibility there was bad weather and also a control ground control here said that they had asked the pilot to make
2:14 am
a second turn so the initial theories that would come out from this investigation are based on that but that's a block box it's still be decoded it's in moscow they're going to find out more from the final communications from the black box. a commercial plane that would have landed on schedule ended up in pieces and inflames this tuple of one three four carrying fifty two people from moscow the northwestern russia crash on a road around a kilometer from the runway airport officials say the plane hit a high voltage power line that cut off lights on the runway which also knocked out the tiles electricity. at around midnight the lights went off in our house we were going to check the electric transformer when we heard the sound of a huge explosion we arrived at the scene of the accident the airplane was seriously damaged we could see its wing shutting out of the bushes there were bodies scattered all around the field there were lots of them i carried three people out
2:15 am
of the wreckage one was either a girl or a woman i could not sell but she was larger than a man was hard to see it was dark and there was a man it also wasn't happy he was launched on me and then we carried out two more people from the wreckage in the middle of the road another man reached out his time told me but i couldn't make it to him everything started exploding i could not get any closer everything was engulfed by fire so our. initial reports point to human error and bad weather conditions at the time as possible causes of the crash ground stop at the local airport claimed they had asked the pilot to make a second approach but he said he'd make it the first time however investigators say there are several theories. nothing has been ruled out just yet. we're looking into several versions of what caused the tragedy these include the human factor such as an air of the crew or the ground services severe weather conditions technical
2:16 am
failure and several other potential causes this is a twenty eighth crash involving a tuple of one three four tarnishing its reputation even more in two thousand and seven russia's transport minister called the aircraft obsolete and should be replaced within five years but some would argue that in most plane crashes human error plays the biggest part new carpet anymore which i don't think anything would go wrong with the plane itself in forty years of operation the triple of one three four has to get extremely reliable aircraft in previous catastrophes human error was always to blame and the same is true here the pilot should have made a second landing approach this is exactly what happened to the polish presidential airplane while investigators work on the case relatives of the victims and survivors are dealing with their own grief was shared by the people of bettors avoids declaring three days of mourning those are still your r.t. in the russian cover your region. the u.s.
