record low temperatures heavy snow falls cause widespread transport chaos and power outages the time. to time just plummeted to minus thirty two celsius as the victims most people. don't expect to u.-turn from the father of the former f.s.b. officer who was poisoned in london six years ago he says he had been wrong to accuse but in appointing of being responsible for his son's death daughter opinion cast said his claims have been driven by grief and hatred i think he had no idea that his son alexander worked for british intelligence participating in the rich over his historical first hand. but. this is how we found mike that lead me and co praying in his tiny italian apartment no electricity no gas no porch water what. 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. we expected more because six years ago after his son former aphis be officer aleksandr litvinenko was poisoned in london he was taken care of by some very powerful patrons like suffix out-i khun maurice berezovsky and ahmed zakayev and a tourist former chechen militant both hiding in the u.k. . yet extremist young dorset there is give me a year per year doris you would be. one vicariously namco sent a letter asking to be interviewed by russian television we expected more of the same but instead. we're going to. be made of each if you're watching this program please forgive me for all the slander the thai said and wrote about
you for the hatred i had for you if 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 story what else can i add to this. 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 enough to take polonium to london sprinkle it over some heads and leave traces everywhere and their suspect andrey lugovoy is not a fool either it was anger and blind hatred speaking inside of me viger 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 real treasure for them the whole there are very few people who would say as many
horrible things about me as i did as well you know living in two thousand and eight was the only thing on call for what russia for sanctuary needs selling is settled in the sleeping quiet town of sinegal it offered to new 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 now because of putin though but because of his landlord to whom hill has 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 burial plot and it's been months since the electricity was shuttled to his flat
he's lost forty euros went on a gas canister and that is gone to your new this is how most of us talk it over in the store to let the southern wind inside. do is east and there's russia through my homeland for. tourists and i want to go home to russia. i do want to stay here. in the great sure aren't t. sity got eataly. time nuff the business update with dmitri. welcome to the program guess appears to be disappearing under mysterious circumstances summer between russia and europe consumers on the continent are
complaining about supplies are for them during this period of exceptionally cold weather basically says it's getting twenty percent less than usual while austria and slovakia claim a thirty percent drop the countries get the gas from transit link which goes of through ukraine however both moscow and kiev deny there have been any changes in volumes. market watchers expect the darkness of eurozone debt problems to get some light ratings agencies that pours expects the currency union to gradually climb out of its mild recession in the second half of this year and into twenty thirty the firms the chief european economist. explains. the risks of a more severe recession. that could go into twenty thirteen are significant we estimate about forty percent probability yet i think we have to look at all the factors there has been some encouraging developments inside the u.
was own and outside the eurozone what we expect is at the moment from emerging markets particularly. asia to strengthen again in the second half of the and that should be supportive of a very gradual recovery in the eurozone we also expect that investors' confidence will gradually come back as you up here in central bank continues to provide ample liquidity to the banking sector in the euro zone. not everyone agrees saxo bank is predicting an economic apocalypse with the european equity markets losing a quarter of their value this year we asked the author of the best seller extreme money such as he does which scenario seems more likely to him. well i think the best way to describe the s. and p. report is whatever they're smoking i'd like to have some as far as the sex of bank
report goes i think they are believers in the mayan calendar which believes that the world will end in two thousand and twelve but i think the major thing is that when you look at the situation there is no way that europe is going to have a small recession it's going to have a long recession because the government spending will have to be cut and that has been the major stimulus which kept these economies going the second thing is the banking system in most of these countries is not creating any credit will not be able to create this technically if you are honest about it they are marginally solvent at best and we still have not resolved the debt issue and the real question is what will happen to portugal what will happen to spain what will happen to italy and there is absolutely no result on the part of european leadership and the european economic community because there is really no easy solution. the big question now is what's the price europe could afford to pay to pull itself out of the crisis we asked the director of the international center from monterey and
banking studies in geneva to put a price on it for us. private estimates by university researchers put the cost of restoring bank fails to about one thousand billion so we come close to ten thousand euros we don't need to spend it but we have to have it ready in heading straight he will stop the crisis that two ways to doing it one is true announced we will do it if need be that will scare the market and stop immediately the prices. that i don't think will happen what will happen is that they will spend and spend then spend. where we would see the markets and in europe they are trading slightly higher in the past couple of hours as investors are looking ahead with optimism to keep the u.s. non-farm payroll data just just the minutes later the russian markets are struggling for direction this friday still looking flat to pose over c.r.t.'s and
the my sex one more hour to go of trading for take a look at the main movers paul used gold is outstandingly up thirty six and a half percent more than in finland the most in three years and media reports that its london listed parent will make a buyout of the. change of fortunes in v.t. b. it's down half a percent while the world's top on and energy stocks are mixed this hour gas problem is just down by a. secret at the exchange rates now the euro is trading just another child versus the dollar and both the european and the u.s. currencies are gaining a small fraction against the russian. oil is mixed this hour light sweet is down seventeen cents brant is that one hundred twelve and a half dollars a barrel. and that's your business update we will be back in fifty five minutes time with another tuesday.
welcome back time for a look at the headlines now the latest pictures now from cairo where volleys of tear gas have been farther into fleeing crowds of protesters egyptians have rallied for the day reports of at least three people killed in protests against the military this broke out after wednesday's football violence left seventy four dead . un makes headway on a new resolution on syria the references to regime change into the arms it moved on to russia's concerns moscow continues to warn it will oppose any attempt to even to
hint of a threat present i said. but those polling stations across russia will get their own digital observer of where cameras are installed on ministers orders a move was introduced by the end of the two things one step toward stock intellectual for next month's presidential election. but next hour special reports on the resetting u.s. russian relations and how it's being affected by america's controversial missile defense shield in europe. the most vital national security interests of the united states would be most effectively realized not through hostility to russia a true cooperation with it. my senior russia and the united states can we just settlement of the establishment of a global missile defense system about. this plan research is in jeopardy even the
new strategic arms reduction treaty between moscow and washington has been unable to help. at a time of warmer bilateral relations needs whose top brass decided to deploy a missile defense system aimed at protecting europe but they were setting up too close to russia's borders and most go didn't view it as a friendly gesture. we want to defend the whole europe not just some european countries we want to european allies and friends to join in on missile defense strategy. solution even use the event of the situation with a european missile defense system becoming unfavorable to russia we reserve the right to take no further steps in the nuclear disarmament area. the kremlin has repeatedly demanded that nato guarantees that the european missile defense shield would pose no threat to russia's strategic interests sofa the west has refused to
cooperate with moscow on the issue. intercontinental ballistic missiles are transported through snowbound russian forests under the cover of darkness. the movements are shrouded in secrecy the people in charge need to perform training drills and test the hardware on the roof . suddenly the convoy comes to a halt there's a forest stream blocking the path. crossing it's quite a challenge for the drivers of motor vehicles weighing many times. as specially considering the carrying nuclear warheads.
engine is make sure that the heavy launches safely reach the opposite bank with the most hazardous hurdle behind it the convoy is on the move again. as the convoy forges ahead to its destination they leave the forest and pass through villages the sound of powerful engines thundering past is becoming a common occurrence lately for local people. we need such missiles to defend russia we were there we would be crushed if we didn't have them. that's all there is to it.
working when you hear them rumbling past you get a sense of great might there is no dealt we will be able to defend our country. without an agreement with the united states on missile defense and in the face of potential military threats russia was compelled to think of countermeasures. the country has declared in the past that it may withdrawal from the strategic arms reduction treaty and said it will introduce measures to counter the missile defense shield. we will go ahead with the deployment of our missile defense system it is obvious that this presupposes deployment of its components in poland in romania in a radar station in turkey obviously this will also until these their mission of the basis be for american ships equipped with the ag system. it is obvious that the missile defense system will be targeted at the russian
federation rather than some mythical middle eastern countries possessing virtual missiles. at least fifteen countries around the world have been involved with the nato missile defense shield . their radar stations in denmark and britain which is also host to interceptor missiles. canada two is going to join the project anti missile functions will be given to norad the agency responsible for north america's air and outer space defense. japan has decided to assist the nato missile defense shield it's taking part in the manufacture of a just into septa missiles. japan is going to build a forward based radar station on its territory. a similar radar station has already been built in turkey. the czech republic roumania hungary and poland are ready to allow nato as missile defense complexes to be placed on their territory. that it
that would make a forward based american military presence which means the deployment of bases in post is so. republics notably in central asia is an element of us global domination as a powerful ramified infrastructure any military base has the capacity to deploy units of agents supplying electronic intelligence. russia has taken adequate measures to counter such actions but i'm like nato it confines its activities to its own territory a radar station is being put on combat duty in the kaliningrad region russia's western most part. tactical missile systems are being deployed in the country's west and. they can hit any target within a radius of up to five hundred kilometers. what is most important is that the russian ballistic missiles are being gradually equipped with new warheads capable of overcoming nato's missile defense system.
this lift carries people down to a secret radar station in european russia it's tucked away deep underground in a few minutes time major will be on duty to protect russia's space. to get everything about the station is classified the equipment behind these doors is the responsibility of special officers the station itself can operate autonomously it has its own power source and water supply and a ventilation system in. washington knows only too well that russia can easily control the entire airspace of eastern europe this radio is one of the instruments the military installation
protects the moscow region from attack by ballistic missiles it's thought to be controlled by russia's president who is also commander in chief of the armed forces . some time ago russia suggested to the united states that they jointly control the outer space over the middle east he was in a similar radio transmitter station did as about. if nato is top brass agreed to cooperate they would receive reports of any unauthorized iranian missile launches that washington would see as a threat to america. or in his developed milicic missiles capable of hitting targets in the little beast in eastern europe this poses a threat to u.s. interests in the region. i don't agree with the u.s. government belief that this is a serious problem with iran is doing is they're using very simple
relevent nothing simple about rockets but the using very early generation rocket technology the only rockets they could build that could reach the united states would be enormous in size and not be mobile this city would have to be launched from fixed locations where the united states and russia if russia joined the united states could monitor these these missiles many in the united states dislike the views of federal postal he maintains that the european missile defense system is ineffective the scientist estimates that it has no chance of protecting the united states from a rainy and missiles instead it creates problems for russia if russia believes the fence is not needed but it doesn't pose a theoretical threat to russia. my guess is that the russian government will say ok if you want to spend your national treasure this will help you so it solves the
political problem and it provides a much more capable defense there with the united states currently building in goods of them much cheaper. the professor believes that the purpose of nato is radar in europe is to track the movements of russian strategic weapons and to monitor russia's new military technologies. the real target could be russia but certainly it makes the people of europe less safe it draws them in in fact as a geo strategic pawn by great powers as they maneuver and use the missile defense shield not as a way to defend your not as a way to defend anybody in fact but to provide a first strike potential capability against the adversary. this is how we are going to train ourselves in order to be ready for any situation
. these people crossing a field of. have serious worries about the global situation. they feel that as long as nuclear weapons exist they need to know how to protect themselves. if they survive in the face of a real threat they need to have everything necessary close at hand. the coach tells them that a compass and a mobile phone unlikely to help. the problem is that we can only get our bearings by looking at tree branches there are more branches on the side where they are exposed to see. sunlight that side points to the south. the people involved
in a survival experiment will have to cover several kilometers in full gear their training mission is to reach an abandoned military base where they can hide from the harmful effects of radiation. culture is that so much as i know it was which of course he's right on it and so here it is as the us presidential campaign become a horse race pitting incumbent caracal bamma against republican mitt romney if this is really the case but. a soulless substance. cannot touch like a well trained army. villages in ruins. for thailand where time stands still.
all becomes a scene of nothingness. the mysterious sons of russia. are teaching. the close up team has been to the whole bar of screen. where the country's mineral wealth starts its way across the ocean. now our team goes to the area. was named after lenin but looking to a different character to represent itself for local businesses or striving to build the aviation capital of russia. that's where the four by fours are made and can be tested to the limit. welcome to the union of creature. russia close up.
more news today violence is once again flared up. and these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada after. china operations are rooted a clue. alexandra's family live in a military camp that is off limits to the public. keep going keep going. keep going. alexander was in a secret unit manning missiles when he's. always makes a point of spending time with his wife and children. he's well aware of the standoff between nato and russia. it makes him apprehensive
about what kind of future awaits his sons. of course my wife and i often talk about the future. we would like to see a bright future without crises. but over here we want everybody to live in peace and we want everything to be just fine. the i.c.b.m. so accompanied by a combat escort but with today we have eyes covered ground very difficult conditions for a thrust forward to the i do hope everything will pass off without any incidents. trucks carrying nuclear warheads lined up in a quiet glade the snowy forest provides good kemah flash for them together these mobile missile launches a cold and had gotten russian on the lingo they need to be ready for action at any moment. attention.
come on major section chief says all reporting unit is ready. fully. prepared the aggregate for. full haste. the intercontinental ballistic missile known as the s s twenty five to make this move a twenty one meters long it's almost two meters in diameter and weighs about forty five tons of fuel. despite its impressive propulsion the russian missile still hits targets with absolute precision mage's answered joe is making sure that the missile launches or ways in working order moving military hardware enjoy. the danger. with this is a highly accurate weapon is a range of up to ten thousand kilometers and lands within not more than two hundred meters from targets. you certainly realize that for the purposes.
