approaches for kosovo and serves to leave their border barricades after a demand by nato for the protesters to stand firm. next up close in your group since given his first major interview since confirming he's running for president again he outlined to russian t.v. networks why you want a return to the kremlin and his vision of the country's course if he gets the job. good afternoon again good afternoon i am open to your questions mr putin the latest convention of the united russia party made the political situation in this country much clearer recently with why are you returning to the kremlin it's clear yeah but as i've mentioned many times and as first russian president buddies yeltsin said i never aspired to this position it's a well known fact that initially when this order was made i think this is really expressed doubts over my ability to handle such a huge workload and enormous responsibility for the face of the nation i would want to take up a job i do my best to completed or at least to yield maximum results but there are
people who criticize me and dmitri maybe it is like they say that if your humble servant takes part in the election that would mean there would be no election at all perhaps that would be the case for then but an ordinary citizen always has a choice to make so our critics might see it their own way but in this case they ought to present their platform and what's more important not only to presented also to proven fact is that they can do this job better but we can also refer to the experience of other countries franklin roosevelt stood at the helm throughout the ordeals of economic depression and world war two and was elected four times because his policies were effective helmut kohl spent sixteen years in power in west germany he wasn't president but his post was actually the most important executive job in the country and this includes one of the former canadian prime ministers look at post-war france for a president could have been elected for seven years without a limit on the number of terms it was just recently that france introduced a man with these words constitution and cut it down to no more than two five year
terms very similar to what we have in russia what does that mean when a country is facing difficult and hard times when it's recovering from a crisis and getting back on its feet if these pillars of stability there including in politics play a vital role as regards my return nothing is decided until the people have voted it is one thing when i hear some people say that they would like to see that happen or when people. certain regions suggest something that it is a different thing when the whole country goes to the polls and we need our people to come and express their attitudes to what we have been doing there is another important aspect here the most active part of the political spectrum people who talk about democratic institutions in russia they are concerned the democratic process has made the rules back this is definitely not going to happen because i can't imagine russia developing without democratic institutions and this is exactly what i intend to work on i will strengthen our country's political system and its foundations i will work to develop democratic institutions and a market economy with an emphasis on social needs your threatening problems he
recently visited china and as many notice it was your first visit ruled since you announced he was going to run in the election does that mean china is becoming russia's priority international partner because why did it is a coincidence look if you look at the government schedule it is not a classified document you will see that russian chinese intergovernmental meetings were conducted on a regular basis we have all reasons to consider china a strategic partner of russia and not only because we share the world's longest border but our trade is growing at a great rate china is developing very rapidly turning into a valued partner a great market for russian manufactured goods and a source of investments into our economy. a partner mr putin not a threat. i have said this on more than one occasion to those who tried to scare me with the chinese threat in most cases it was our partners in the west however lucrative the natural resources of eastern siberia and russia's far east might look we all know they are not the prize in today's biggest global struggle but that
struggle is for world leadership and we're not going to get in china's way there china has other competition there let them figure it out to pay for russia china is first and foremost a reliable partner we can tell the chinese authorities and the people of china are willing to build up a good neighborly relations with us to look for middle ground solutions to issues that seem extremely complex. we can tell they are ready to do it we take measures to indicate we are ready and as a result we find points of contact i'm sure will continue to happen in the future when we're here in the idea of bush as for global leadership you recently wrote an article for the at least give a legal you suggest creating a eurasian economic area that will give a bridge between europe and the booming economies of the asia pacific region and i thought at the same time everyone remembers you calling the downfall of the soviet union the last century's biggest geopolitical tragedy in this respect what would you say to those who see in your words and sort of an imperial condition as though
to recreate a new empire will in peter yesterday well you don't need to be an expert to realize that if we combine our country's potential system in technology infrastructure transport energy sector mineral resources workforce territorial and language opportunities which are no less important for developing a common economic space if we combine all these potential our competitiveness will search it will grow dramatically we are using the potential we have inherited from the older generation and we can transfer it to a new modern basis today and if we are committed to introducing the principles of the world trade organization into an operating procedures this will make us more transparent to want external partners as for the foreign critics who say that russia has imperial ambitions so what can i say we see what is going on in europe for example integration has reached a level even the soviet union could never dream of i think you know and if you don't i will tell you that the european parliament has more decisions binding on
the member states than the supreme soviet of the soviet union ever passed by the soviet republics and look at america north america is engulfed in the intense integration processes that involve the united states canada and mexico the same is true for latin america and africa but it is ok over there and nobody has any objections but when it comes to russia here we are imperial ambitions i can tell these critics who. by the way they don't seem to be very conscientious or scrupulous you know what mind your own business go come out of climbing inflation and the growing national debt and even obesity do something useful here mr putin western countries did not react strongly to your decision to run for president at the upcoming elections they said it was russia's internal affair and as angela merkel put it they were ready to work with any live just simply elected president you must understand however that politically western states consider you a hawk how do you feel about that what is going to happen to the reset of russia if
u.s. relations which exists as an idea but there's not many signs that it's working very well the hawk is a good word but you're certainly no doubt. i am a man and i do not like cliches our foreign policy in the past and today that was thought out and aimed at creating a favorable environment for russia's development this means we want to have friendly relations with all of our partners but naturally we have and always will defend our national interests but we have always been a car full of others when we did it and we plan to maintain that in the future and in case of a disagreement or a conflict we will always look for a compromise that would be acceptable both to our partners and our country that what we are not interested in confrontation on the contrary we are interested in cooperation in europe is not a geographical concept first and foremost it is a cultural concept we share the same values with europe of course those are mostly christian values but it goes beyond that even those who consider themselves
atheists were raised on christian values but russia is a multi-faith country where we have many muslims in russia as well we have judaism we have buddhism our fourth traditional religion in our history our culture and traditions make it easy for us to develop harmonious relations with any country of the world and this is exactly what. we are going to do very well in a book on the beach mr putin it looks like there is another storm brewing leap stock markets a tumbling and people say the reason we so much the traders themselves can do it palatable to record an emerging market so losing capital for the same is true batra share but i recently read an article that said there were government needed a new program to counter the next crisis a program that would be like a good scale than a girl short offering an attractive perspective supposedly that would help win back businesses trust and stop the prices where does your government have such a program and while we're at it since it budget is calculated presuming the price
of oil would be at least a little dash hundred dollars per barrel prices are falling through a voice good budget is what it's about is it as you know if we keep talking about the fall of the stock market indexes they might never recover. it will grow by four percent this year which is satisfactory china will grow by nine percent which is a good result we have to push for a six to seven percent economic growth figure we managed to deliver that in the pre-crisis years and we will try to do with again as i've said before we will of course if we try to make our economy more open there are fears however especially in the light of russia's w t o a session that opening up too much might harm it but returning to your metal for a short skirt looks good on some women while others are better off wearing something else the longest skirt. but yes in other clothes russia turned out to be well a put for the two thousand and eight two thousand and nine financial crisis what
are we dealing with now is that we're carefully following developments in the global economy and are the world's largest markets because clearly our economy is not sufficiently diversified and kimonos what if we say that openly to feel more confident the problem is and western countries markets shrink we sell fewer goods but because the prices of our goods. full that is taking into account that only forty seven russian industries are represented well on those markets therefore we are gel to heavy blow if we have fifty to one hundred industries represented the situation would be more balanced and we would be able to switch to a floating currency rates until that happens our national bank will be forced to somewhat regulate rates generally speaking and we will only be able to say we are ready for any changes in internal trends after our economy is diversified. which listed pretty gasper all has been facing certain problems in western europe the german offices of gas brawled have been searched but what is your take on
a situation like this around one of a major companies. like google or it's quite simple i have repeatedly said in public that the sellers are always trying to sell the commodity at higher prices against the buyers always want to get it cheaper or even free which is better still we're not thinking as we think that you would get anything for free naturally without a smaller price yes but it but and that is what they are after and as a result unilateral decisions are taking it for a third energy package for example which was adopted retrospectively and if this is only presented as we feel this should be considered unacceptable in the modern world what it is don't despite all considerations we think ultimate goal behind this course of action is to bring down the cost of the product and to disrupt the market pricing mechanism which is closely connected with the price for crude in russia it is we who set the price in a centralized manner we depend on crude and include goes up the natural gas price
goes up. so does the gas trust i don't think this is a farsighted approach to pricing because today the parts where crews may be fairly high and tomorrow may plummet and gazprom will suffer losses and the buyers on the contrary benefit i don't think this is justifiable besides the natural gas market is very specific but it is largely. depends on a concrete supplier it is a mistake to introduce a third party in the process or as our partner suggested or a third buyer and a third seller this is to say that the russian gas that has reached the border with western europe should be first sold to a third party or a legal entity that will further sell it to the consumers but if you know what the scenario can lead to someone will simply be given an opportunity to pocket additional margin the price will not necessarily good therapy which would be a good percentage for united version these elections are trying to get a political forecast out of being good you know. i'm not asking for any numbers i
just asked you what results you would be satisfied with their united russia has to remain the leading political party in the country and the parliament that would be a good result for us thank you very much for this to at least a few incidences where they believe we are finished with it today thank you. soumitra bryson if you move the song from funds to friendship. these stunts on t.v. don't comb.

conclusions from what happened and these things one happened again. it wasn't the best of stores for cisco moscow in the group stages of the u.a.e. for champions league but the muscovites displayed true strength of character coming back from two goals against little to salvage a draw and says almost managed to repeat that feeds in the next match against its one to ten champions in terry but a late goal by morata left the army men in last place in group b. tribes and war on the other hand find themselves at the top of the group after defeating answer in italy while french outfit little have drawn both of their games in stand in third place still that's up to call it a geisha spots are still up for grabs drugs and war will be aiming for nothing less than a victory in moscow in order to increase their group lead and following in historic one nil away when it entered milan anything seems possible for this third your side the club is the pretty well in their domestic league as well in second place after
six matches is in for head of this tournament very few people had any doubt that we would be in last place but as you can see things are going well we remain optimistic and are looking forward to a positive result both in moscow under home what we understand and see as carr has put a lot of hoping to the next two games against us says current shrub's of or will play each other again in group b.'s next match which will take place on the second of the denver interrogate and the sides are coming to my own choose they should determine both teams aspirations for this european campaign costs are artsy moscow . well meanwhile the english premier league leaders manchester city also faced selection problems as they get ready to host beer a outing group a one chilly inside have taken just one point from two games so far to manage about them and cheney has limited options up front cost is still a virtual outcast at the club after allegedly refusing to come off the bench and play against by in munich in city's previous time mario balotelli is serving the last of a three game european suspension and make some sign and secure where are you struggling
