welcome back to watching r.t. live from moscow these are the week's top stories russia mourns the forty five victims of tuesday's plane crash in the northwest of the country the aircraft went on fire after a crash landing on a major road just a kilometer from its destination pilot error and poor weather conditions are believed to be the main causes of the tragedy. levy has seen a surge in the number of civilian casualties from neighbors airstrikes on the country with the latest bombing reportedly killing fifteen believe it officials say
over eight hundred civilians have died since the operation began in march. and demands for greece student pose tough for a budget cuts if you're a fresh start mass protests ad hold and outrage at yet another rescue plan within the bloc that same prediction that's made predictions that the euro is on the brink of collapse. one of russia's richest man has decided to answer the world of politics may help has been elected leader of the right cause he's planning to win seats in december parliamentary elections and told r.t. he eventually wants to be prime minister and this exclusive interview with igor is going off. he is a successful businessman one of the wealthiest in the world of all big sports. jersey nets and nell the leader of the right cause political party which is aiming
to become russia's a second most powerful political force joined by me. why does such a successful businessman like you want to get into politics. you know when you achieve personal success and when you know this country well any normal person in my position would have a desire to do something for other people as a mechanism for that and it's called politics people have to deal with politics when they go to polling stations there's also the job of a professional politician so i've made a decision to become a professional politician to help the citizens of this country to live better and i think i don't have or let's talk about some of russia's biggest problems it's not corruption annually sucks in nearly one third of g.d.p. according to some calculations half of business spending is on kickbacks and bribes as a representative of business would you agree with these figures and what can be done to improve the situation obviously this is a well known fact these figures are unlikely to surprise anybody i think that our
main problem is that the old model has exhausted its potential for development we should suggest a new model of political and economic development a new audiology a new everything this new model should produce a new effect i know how we should do that and we are going to explain it to every russian in our party crow graham in a very simple way or does the right cause party have the resources to develop this new political model i think that even opportunity emerges to bring it home to our citizens what you deem necessary this chance cannot be missed the motto of who us can do it but me is very urgent at the moment. is it possible to do business in russia will. well having close ties with bill's in power you know you need to have some connections to do business in any country everything depends on the measure of these connections to a greater or minute agree big business always has more ties and connections we are like the rest of the world in this respect. where would you put the level of
corruption in russia on a ten point scale the level of corruption is high and it permeates practically all spheres of life for our people i think that we've inherited this corruption in the former u.s.s.r. it was more widespread at that time in order to buy meat it was necessary to make friends with butchers in order to buy nice clothes it was necessary to have friendly time directors and the market economy has become a thing of the past but a new kind of corruption has appeared everything linked to people's daily life is corrupt everybody talks about that we understand how we should tackle this problem russia's economy is still deeply dependent on national resources and their export obviously does is a dead end is an innovation beast economy possible in russia and what needs to be done to be a bit i think you should put this question a bit wider what competitive advantages does this country have compared to other countries we should develop them apart from our oil and gas sector we are also
a great transit power that we can build roads railroads or normal airports but we can link together two parts of the globe like europe and china we have unique human resources which have been under used and we're planning to focus our efforts exactly on the human potential. what's your take on russia's judicial system can it be called independent and what's your opinion on me of that of course he's second criminal case i think that our judicial system is imperfect just because of the mere fact that we don't comply with the constitution our constitution has a. in about the administrative court and it's been shelved for twelve years it's the administrative court as supposed to defend our citizens if a citizen doesn't like a directive issued by a bureaucrat he can turn to an administrative court for help a bureaucrat in turn to prove that his directive is in line with the law today
a bureaucrat takes no responsibility this is a problem that needs to be tackled why did ministry tive court the second thing is linked to hold of course the law is a law irrespective of whether it's good or bad all of us are obliged to stick to this law if there are faults in it it's the task of a political party to suggest amendments even this imperfect law implies a procedure called early release on parole i personally think there are no grounds to deny khodorkovsky eleven day of their right to be released early on parole. i think the last ten years or the construction of a massive vertical line of power i mean you have the regions privileges have been moved to moscow for example the election of regional governors or scared sort of in your opinion does such a system meet water and the mend. only a system that can answer one simple question easily can be considered to match modern reality and problem should be solved wherever emerges our system of
government doesn't meet that criteria at the moment as it's well known that you have close ties to board with the kremlin and the government with the right cause party can be considered opposition even though you've asked others to forget to stir nevertheless the policy you want to put forward or different from those of the current political force. this is just a different model a different vision the united russia party is a political monopoly and we will be fighting all kinds of monopolies whether political natural spiritual or economic with competition. or do you think you're all ideas maybe come up problem for your interests having such close ties with those in power that is what i believe every development model comes from the inside correspondingly this is my conviction and therefore i will be proposing that the greatest do you see yourself running for president in the future but. i'm not
the kind of person who tends to dream or plunge into illusions we have particular goals to get into russia's lower house of parliament or the maximum number of votes but i also understand is that i could be a good prime minister of the party successful i would fight for this position. here's a question on a totally different issue our audience is quite international as the owner of the new jersey nets can you shed some light on what awaits the team this year any surprises me. from. the team will be consolidating we have a clear plan and we're not going to give up this plan that i've announced time and time again that within four years we will become champions. another nonpolitical question about your maybe it's reported there is already a five year waiting list for the score is ten years. ready even ten so it's a tremendous success even though the core is not yet being produced and most people
haven't seen these cars in real life is there also interest from abroad and how do you evaluate russia's core market in general but it. really happy to see such great demand for the new russian car our people want to see something new in russian so we must meet their expectations as a russia's automotive industry i think is now following the traditional way trying to get modern western makes into the country localization of any western car broadens the gap by seven or eight years this is why we chose a different way to make an entirely new car based on a new concept we need to be able to move forwards in time that's the point of innovation and that's what innovators take risks will use. what. is it possible to make parallels between the your might be and the right cause party do you expect the party to be as popular as the score among the people you know about them i mean i wouldn't have gone into politics if i didn't think so thank you very

injury for sports in the country but the biggest achievement is behalf that the russian olympic committee has not been going for one hundred years and delusion hysteria and that hosted the moscow olympics in one thousand eight hundred became the center of celebrations marking that fact russian olympic champions and famous athletes turn up giving everyone a chance to talk to some top sports stars. i think an event such as this one should be held every year as it is an important occasion for all the current former and future russian olympians and of the population see that athletes give it their all during the games the exposure would increase regardless of the results. just right i consider this special day to be a personal holiday for me since i'm in the olympic camp am i'm going to be olympic committee our main goal is to simply expose as many children possible course for a healthier future generation. there is always something to be improved
it could be opening body of the russian olympic movement but it is how to raise a lot of champions and once an athlete takes part in maryland picks and then olympian forever you know the look at that and upset you but you know everything i do now is connected with sport and that's great i spend more than twenty years in sport and i don't want to let it go i feel some responsibility and i have to give something back and many people have a lot of that into making an olympic champion out of it what is that that that. some of the athletes who are arrived at the round a still aiming for olympic gold and with his socially bix in mind rushing to national hockey player much seem like an ideal and gave his last man of the pointy end of the new blood really as russia's new head coach. is. ever perfect.
