9:01 am
well it's just after five pm here in the russian capital and we start with some breaking news here on r.t.e. a russian passenger plane has crashed on the runway in the central russian. it's understood that thirty four of those on board are dead parties and he said. for us . so well what can you tell us about what happened. so far we know very little information really we know that the plane crashed on takeoff taking off from an airport which is not very far from where we are of course at the venue for the global policy forum here in europe like you said thirty four so far confirmed dead we know three are in critical condition and it's known that thirty seven people of course in total were on board so people hoping that those three people of course will survive we know that the plane crashed about five hundred meters off the runway and somehow it turned on its left the amazing is that this is a hockey team this is
9:02 am
a team traveling to minsk for training when they when they crash on this take off the plane. i don't know very much about the plane but what i have heard so far that it's a very reliable plane we're kind of monitoring the situation and getting little bits little bit of bits and pieces i should say of information as it slowly comes in and in fact as soon as i'm done talking to you we're going to get in the car and go over to the airport it's not very far from here like i said and actually try to. figure out what exactly happened there and get some pictures for you all right thanks very much and to sort of the early stages a still will be waiting for those details as they come in thank you. and the top of court brylin as strode out a series of lawsuits germany's bankrolling the bailouts to the european economies were illegal but just ruled out giving chancellor merkel a blank check saying any future aid must now be pre-approved by parliament well that could have for germany's ability to. it's a learning new crisis but sets
9:03 am
a precedent for other nations to tighten their belts as well opposition parties welcome the room etc merkel had made the crisis worse through delays and a lack of vision financial advisor patrick young believes and there's little to celebrate just yet. ultimately this is actually i think what we would call a pyrrhic victory it's an empty victory for mrs merkel yes the be allowed can go ahead and bark like all good court judgments read the small print and what has happened today is that in fact the german court which has clearly been very very much split on the issue has come up with an announcement we're still scarring through the small print but what we read so far suggests to us that they're going to request that the german parliament and most importantly of all the german budget committee has own grid deal more say on what goes on in the whole issue on a larger basis what we're looking at today is that yes below it's can go ahead but at the same time it's still a very very cloudy picture of quickly we know that the german people are deeply
9:04 am
unhappy about what's going on and they don't see there being any benefit in suddenly giving a credit card another bottle of vodka to a drying drunken man in a department store and that's what we've got here it's going to still be a terrible result once the market as a bit of a relief rally which is going on as we speak what's happening is greece is essential to being so all hide behind in slavery by the way that the euro debt mechanism is working it's a farce for greece it's a farce for the greece people and it's a total complete and utter disaster for the greece should be allowed to go free and it must make its own decisions its own sovereign decisions that have greece doesn't leave the cancer is spreading and as we know it reached in italy last month periods already were rooting around the place in spain and it hit portugal italy ireland so far does the disease google for it finally kills the patient i think the question is it's not a question of how much work is there to get angry side of the euro i actually are
9:05 am
much chances are that the euro is going to survive with greece still in it and the answer is really numb. well further south of there is clear frustration among italians and the spanish with thousands rallying in protest at their government's fascist parity measures italy's forty five billion euro package welcomed by the e.u. includes new tax hikes and raising the retirement age for women all in spain the demonstrations came ahead of a crucial senate vote on amending the constitution to limit national debt during years or rights groups say the death cap would decimate the welfare system and hurt the most vulnerable. well now a new front in the global currency war has opened up after a certain surprise international markets by devaluing its currency by almost ten percent in just fifteen minutes or the swiss franc has been rising steadily for over a year as product investors look for a safe place to weather the storms in the troubled u.s. and european economies or this rise caused the price of everyday items such as food
9:06 am
and clothing to shoot up making it cheaper for swiss citizens to drive to germany for their shopping or the country's central bank says that by pegging the swiss franc to the turbulent euro it will protect them from brampton inflation but german economic analyst michael ross believes it's no more than a capitulation to brussels bureaucracy. in last ten percent of its savings the swiss franc devaluated ten percent that means that everything will be ten percent more expensive in the future what we saw in switzerland is nothing the nuku nuku of the central bank of switzerland. means people and politicians are not being asked if they want it or not if you ask. if you want to join the euro then he would clearly vote for nought but there were only a few even more what we saw in switzerland with the central bank was
9:07 am
a total unconditional. two voor to brussels and to the euro zone and in the end of the day. also introduced in switzerland this is my view so all you can really speak about the coup which happened. now libyan rebels say they've trapped colonel gadhafi and are ready to take him dead or alive while the former leader was tracked down after loyalists convoys left for the neighboring country of niger the rebels are believed to have located gadhafi with high tech equipment and intelligence they now control most of the country after a helping hand from western nations but it's in stark contrast to how america and britain operated in libya in recent years before the end to get off a campaign at the cia and six for allegedly sending terrorist suspects to libya for interrogation and torture that's according to documents on earth in libya which have sparked outrage was artie's daniel bushell reports the sign suggest the violence isn't over yet and the real chaos may be yet to come. home eat his knees

9:09 am
hopes of a reliable replacement for more of my gadhafi appeared to be fading libya's rebels remain deeply divided while the chaos from nato bombing appears to be spreading beyond the country's borders in the turmoil there are fears that religious extremists could be using libya as a base to further their aims in north africa if i'm to new zealand or a good while of a delusion we men got abortion rights twenty years before women in belgium under the last regime divorced women good benefits revived arab religious movements are trying to reverse that. before the war leaders from barack obama to nicolas sarkozy and silvio berlusconi a short and even kissed gadhafi robles got the red carpet treatment in paris but the west will also change tack one experts if libya doesn't go for them as planned according to this man who's just returned from war torn tripoli the message from some locals there is that the conflict may have created a frankenstein's monster for europe they warned us that we don't know what we are
9:10 am
creating it will be a free haven of extremist groups which are just on the southern border of europe poirot's from failed somalia made their coast a no go. frighteningly some diplomats now think libya is heading in the same direction but what they will do sure that it is mediterranean will not be a safe city there will be a part of us and there will be all bloat to control the mediterranean to make it safe i don't think french economy can support that western intervention in libya has brought large numbers of new forces to the fall experts fear the west itself may come to regret their emergence daniel bushell r.t. brussels. and staying with the region's troubles russia and france are calling for more dialogue between the syrian government and its opposition to try and rest well there is also a warning that there should be no repeat of what happened in libya and that's

9:12 am
violence and we've proposed a resolution to this in fact we encourage the government to carry out the reforms it has launched and the opposition should not use provocations and reject invitations into dialogue that's. why it comes to the different approaches between russia and france france. tough sanctions on the syrian authorities while russia stands for peaceful dialogue but anyway the syrian situation is still to be discussed later in september at the u.n. the general assembly meeting in new york well they've talked about why the range of issues of course quite a worrying issue for russia the u.s. plans to build the anti missile defense system. in europe and france is once again . to talk about this with moscow in the future to continue negotiations and according to the french foreign minister there is hopes that they
