if you. work for british intelligence. spies saga you turn the father of a former f.s.b. officer poisoned in london six years ago says accusing vladimir putin of big behind the desk was a mistake party gets the story first time. the un considers a new draft of a resolution on syria which no longer calls on president assad to step down following criticism from russia. and the german leader takes a euro to convince china not to write off the e.u. and get beijing support for the oil embargo against iran.
then business starts the russians government says it's ready to buy back shares from minority shareholders of russia's second largest bank more on this and to its . international news and comment live from moscow this is. an unexpected change of heart the father of a former f.s.b. officer poisoned in london in two thousand and six has backtracked on accusations that that russian president vladimir putin was responsible for his son's death volta litvinenko said his claims were driven by hatred saying he had no idea his son alexander worked for british intelligence but he is a country. went to meet him. but you.
know this is how we found mike that leads me and co bringing his tiny italian apartment no electricity no gas no water. well. if it wasn't for the help of various people i would have died from hunger or frozen to death the last time i took a bath was on christmas day we expected more because six years ago after his son former f.s.b. officer aleksandr litvinenko was poisoned in london he was taken care of by some very powerful patrons like cell fix out-i khun boris berezovsky and ahmed zakayev and a tourist former chechen militant both hiding in the u.k. . if you just smoke three of them we broke. yet you get extremist yellow dorsett there or he's just give me a yes but here doris you would be. the one vital you've been and co sent
a letter asking to be interviewed by russian television we expected more of the same but instead we're going to a different. remit of each if you're watching this program please forgive me for all the slander the times said and wrote about you know the hatred i had for you even only i had known my son worked for british intelligence i would not talk about his death he could easily have been shot as a double agent betrayers should be short of story what else can i add to the holes in the view of. the u.-turn vowed to assess came when his sons we doe marina bin and co revealed to the british media that her husband had worked for m i six further details followed when a newspaper launched its own investigation alexander litvinenko was receiving a retainer of around two thousand pounds a month from the british security services at the time he was murdered it is understood that sir john scarlett now head of m i six and was based in moscow was
involved in recruiting him to the secret intelligence service. at first by turnitin and cole like many others claimed his son had been poisoned with polonium two ten on putin's order the former f.s.b. officer and fierce critic of the kremlin alexander litvinenko spent twenty three days in a london clinic slowly dying from a toxic substance possibly consumed through a cup of tea even before police in london started questioning suspects the victim's father was actively kucing the russian government today by their admits he was saying only what the west wanted to hear. of course i realize russia's f.s.b. and the idiot you know have to take polonium to london sprinkle it over some heads and leave traces everywhere and their suspect. is not a fool either it was anger and blind hatred speaking inside of me vadra now believes his son fell victim to his own game of double agents now he wants his
words to be heard but the media outside russia which once beat down his door for interviews now won't even reply to his requests. why is that because they like it when i scold the regime i was a root treasure for them over the whole there are very few people who would say as many horrible things about me because i did as well you know living in two thousand and eight but the only thing young cofa what russia for sanctuary needs healing is settled in the sleeping quiet town of city got it over did you anonymous life the man claimed putin was his number one enemy so hiding in europe he believed was the only safe solution today was the lithuanian co is still afraid to open this door not because of putin though but because of his landlord to whom he owes a lot of money this miserable life has made him a slave of his sanctuary. but actually sold everything he had in russia to come to
eataly he opened a small business several years ago but it went bankrupt things got worse after the seventy three year old had buried his wife but are now fears here a casket could be removed because he hasn't paid the cost of a barrel plot and it's been months since the electricity was shut off to his flat he's lost forty euros went on a gas canister and that is gone to your this is how i want my son of a look at the neighbor in the door to let the southern wind inside. do is east only has russia so you my homeland are for. tourists i want to go home to russia. i don't want to stay here. big city on the ground sure aren't t. sity got eataly. and russian businessmen on the look avoid the man accused by the
u.k. of killing litvinenko says the spies father dealt a blow to british special services. those comments by live in new york his father reflect what i've been saying for more than five years that all the accusations from prison wouldn't stand up in court and it proves british special services have completely failed in their attempts to discredit russia they have just embarrassed themselves but public opinion about russia in the u.k. will only change if a court makes some kind of decision but i honestly doubt the impartiality of british courts. the draft resolution on syria under discussion at the un security council is reportedly being softened to take into account russian concerns it's likely to have references to president a sad stepping down and an arms embargo removed from the text let's get more now from this development from marty's marina portnoy she is in new york marina why such a change in the u.n. if indeed this report is true. well bill if indeed this these reports coming out
are true i it clearly indicates that western countries are yielding to to the demands of russia china many other members of the security council that have said the council should not be used as a tool to impose regime change in syria or any other country throughout the world that the street security council should work in facilitating a dialogue and coming up to peaceful solutions and as you mentioned there are several reports coming out that this new draft resolution on syria does drop the call for syrian president bashar al assad to step aside and hand over his powers to his deputy that is something that the arab league with the support of the u.s. and western countries pointed in addition to this new draft according to reports also removes the reference of stopping the flow of arms to syria this was also a big concern for russia and other countries because there are there are opposition
groups in syria that are also armed and if there was. a stop an arms embargo put on syria nobody knew how it would be implemented western countries are still at the united nations along with russia china all members of the security council right now hammering out the details of this new draft now it's still not clear whether russia would support this new draft officials tell our team that nothing has been confirmed for sure on this draft negotiations at the u.n. are continuing as i mentioned but as the debate on the draft resolution on syria continues moscow is reminding all security of member security council members to take into account the recent report prepared by the arab league observers because this report doesn't acknowledge the existence of arms groups in syria involved in the killings of civilians and government forces this is an issue that many men. as
the security council were reluctant reluctantly razer did not break rather when there was an open debate held a huge gains of go and this is a circumstance in the report that needs to be underscored and taken to into consideration according to russia and one with many other members of the council so clearly this is a new development we are going to be following it because there are discussions and ongoing negotiations at the united nations about this draft resolution on syria that's not ending anytime soon so as new information becomes available we will of course update our viewers just briefly of course they are concerned that the arab league report as you say should be brought into account is there a chance that it will be listened to and in fact what impact consequences would that have. the arab league report from the very get go should have been listened to and it was cited it was addressed by the two representatives of the arab league but
they brought up certain facts of the report while addressing the security council on tuesday but didn't bring up other facts one that i just mentioned the fact that opposition groups are armed in syria and according to the report they have been involved in the killings of civilians and government officials what this indicates is that two parties in syria are responsible for the violence it's not just one sided and this is this is what russia has been saying all along the united nations should not be taking sides in a conflict that's happening in a sovereign country the united nations should be trying to facilitate a peaceful dialogue a peaceful approach to ending the problem and not just take a side so if this were this report needs to be underscored highlighted in red there really and what this would indicate what i think this means is that the western countries can't rush to demand the president of syria just step down if you see that other members of syria other. citizens are also responsible for the violence
this is a very complicated issue and not where you just can't be decided upon in one day two days and we see it's been going on for eleven months but there needs to be outward to russia very fair and the correct approach in syria they don't want to be have syria be our repeat of what happened in libya look at libya now thanks very much indeed for that update live there from new york well for more on the developments concerning syria we cannot talk to michelle chossudovsky he's director at the center for research on globalization joining us from montreal well as we are hearing now there are media reports that suggest that diplomats in the u.n. have dropped calls for the syrian president to step down many thought that russia's stance would indeed isolate moscow but do you think now that russia's concerns are actually being listened to now. well who. are leading the observer mission all. should
change the position which russia takes in this in this debates pertaining to the draft resolution. it's the tory is to say the least that the arab league is not living up to the results of all of this mission report and the mission report is very clear it says it is an all of. this only entity is committee crimes against civilians paul beans terrorist acts and calls it quickly the issue is who is behind this. they talk about the syrian free army they talk about on opposition groups and they provide evidence to the effect that this is an insurrection it is so it is not a peaceful protest their knowledge that there is
a peaceful protest but they see that in those circumstances. that mission was witness to that and they said that there was no crackdown by government forces of peaceful protests that said michel that is a very very significant report as you say what are the consequences of it now being listened to within you and you said that it will alter russian stats and of course the u.n. as a whole the u.n. security council stands in what way now just explain briefly well it this this report was leaked we published it yesterday. the all of the missions of the vote the permanent the no permanent members have this report they can read it the russian delegation you when you're presented of can read it what they should do is through well that draft resolution and have another one which which actually focuses all the foreign forces including turkey israel saudi arabia which all. supporting an insurgency in
a sovereign country daily syria. the report is the extremely explicit it also points to the fact that there's been a lot of meat of the solution. and it is not particularly pro-government if it comes to live. but it also acknowledges what what is known and documented by the independent media but not i by the goldmans as well as the mainstream media that their own gatherings insurgencies integrated mice a lot of cars in organizations which are killing people in syria and the question is who is behind them ok let me just go right let me quickly ask you about the significance of this development in the us. the idea that they going to lose the call for a sad to step down and also take out any reference to stopping an arms flow going into syria what then should
a new resolution consistent. well i first of all i think the resolution should be scrapped. and this this report should be public it should be taken very seriously countries like. portugal. which because of the of the security council no government should investigate the matter. of the arab league faction live by that the report which in itself commissioned it just so happens that these this observer mission is made up of people who are not necessarily politically independent observers they insist they're saying the truth and they're saying the truth and ultimately the two should prevail for this resolution should be thrown out and russia should take stalls not is not an issue to say we are not going along with this process ok i know it was not we show it off
key thank you very much indeed for your thoughts director of the center for research on globalization live in montreal concerning the latest developments in the u.n. over syria other news now here on our t.v. the world's top whistleblower has made his appeal to the u.k. supreme court and now it's up to the judges to decide his fate gina saunders wanted in sweden on the negations of sexual assault we can leaks founder denies the accusations and sister case against him is politically motivated or smith is outside the supreme court in la. and laura both sides have put their case before court can we expect a decision soon what's the time scale of all of this. for the time scale is according to the supreme court's they will deliver that takes in what they're calling and number of weeks so we're not sure whether that means two weeks or whether it means eight weeks but certainly we have now reached the end of this day herring and which base.
