scios in order to preserve this instability in all the two eventually just to follow the authoritarian ruling here in the country hardcore football fans known as own choice that have always been. forefront of the uprising against mubarak have come right after this happened courtside have come to the building of the interior ministry here in the central cairo just some blocks away from here calling for justice for the middle transition of the power from the military to civil institutions and for. actually presidential elections and since in the last four days the standoff between police and protesters has never actually stalled it's still continuing right. at this very moment actually we've been there it's a complete disaster i hope you can see the pictures right now it's a narrow street. street one the streets that lead into the wards the building over
the interior ministry the realm of people the chance of alatri and military slogans from time to time police firing tear gas and protesters but it never comes as a surprise for than this why many of them are wearing gas masks and if north all of the. many of them are carrying bottles with special liquid that may help in this situation and so. pieces of cotton like this one this actually they gave me they're soaking it in this liquid and sniffle and all the time to be able to breathe normally so it's complete disaster let's listen to people there have been saying you people are just protesting in addition to. the cancer the guys are unbelievable in fact even people might die and then there's nothing each day children everything today a journey that. began to eat my dinner and leadership leaving me. that the chinese
the seventy seven year old china it's over here it's more than enough what they're doing to the protesters are they doing to them what is the country and it must be. another protester came. to me. three showing these two rubber bullets i hope you can see it right now claiming he was injured with that to his left calls so as you can see station is very tense very complicated here in cairo but the war says that we can expect escalations even further back to sean all right maria for notion we know that things are tense there in cairo and the country as a whole and we'll be coming back to you as that situation continues to develop. on saturday police effected one of the sites of the occupy wall street anti-corporate movement in the u.s. officers wearing protective gear cracked down on a camp in macpherson square in washington early in the morning they removed tents
and sleeping bags and arrested at least four people in forcing a ban on camping issued by local authorities earlier in the week the park was cordoned off and a helicopter was seen hovering overhead the occupy movement has seen some heavy handed police tactics including the recent taser shocking of a nonviolent protest here in d.c. but excessive force won't scare activists away says kevin zeese from our economy think tank. i mean who knows what's going through their head space on that you know when we i watch that video it's available online and it looks like there was no justification for it when i went to make fears on the day to ask about it people said the only thing he was doing was taking the signs around the tents that said no camping and so that was the rationale for tasering him he was not being as frightening it looks like the excessive use of force my sense is that it's not going to provoke the macpherson campers that they're more. disciplined than that to
fall for that trap the occupy movement in a few months. and show the american people that if they get mobilized and organized that we have power we can change the direction this country so the future's going to be an american spring that's going to explode out of the sea and become more important the presidential race in two thousand and twelve now and to some other news making headlines around the world at this hour. the former cuban president fidel castro has made a rare public appearance in the country's capital to launch his memoirs but a book called good times is almost one thousand pages long and it covers his first childhood memory was up until his rise to power in the cuban revolution in one thousand fifty eight it is the first time he's been seen in public since april last year. after he retired in two thousand and eight following an illness that a person. cold weather in europe has now claimed two hundred twenty lives as countries struggled to cope with record low temperatures ukraine is being hit the
hardest as more than one hundred died when temperatures plummeted to minus thirty degrees celsius it is said that most of the victims there were homeless people meanwhile bosnian authorities declared a state of emergency in the capital sarajevo when snow caused power outages and closed transit routes in rome the coliseum is closed after the city's heaviest snowfall in almost three decades with italy's death toll rising to five. and there has been an unexpected u. turn from the father of the former f.s.b. officer alexander litvinenko who was poisoned in london six years ago he says he was wrong to accuse the kremlin of organizing his son's death and admits he just said what the west want to hear r.t. want to hear voltaire story firsthand. but is. this is how we found like that litvinenko praying in his tiny italian apartment no electricity no gas no cold water what. if it wasn't for the help of
his people i would have died from hunger and to death the last time i was on christmas eve. 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 picture like suffix out tycoon ski and kind of and a tourist former chechen militant both hiding in the u.k. . extremist yo dorset there is give me your your pretty your divorce you would be. when vitally pin and co 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 are watching
this program please forgive me for all the slander the thai said and wrote about you for the hatred i had will you support or 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 voters says 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 ones based in moscow was involved in recruiting him to the secret intelligence service. at first by truly thin and cold 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 accusing 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 media 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 vikram 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 their move on the whole there are very few people who would say as many horrible things about as i did as well you know living in two thousand and eight was the only thing young called what russia for sanctuary needs silly 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 living and 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 surely the namco 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 her now fears her casket could be
removed because he hasn't paid the cost of a very old plot and it's been months since the electricity was shadow to his flat that he was lost forty euros went on a gas canister and that is gone to your name this is how i wound myself of us talk at the number in the door to let the southern wind inside with there is east only as russia here my homeland for. tourists i want to go home to russia. i don't want to stay here. big city in the church over our t.v. city ghalia eataly. and i'll recap our top stories for you after a short break still thirty.
has been seeing from the streets of kenya that. giant corporations are on today. and bring you the top news and headlines from our studios and some from oscar this is our team. stalemate at the u.n. russia and china rebuffed the western backed draft resolution on syria with moscow saying it's vague wording leaves the door open for foreign military intervention. rocked by a return it to on rest of dozen dead and thousands wounded in egypt protesters attempt to loosen the military's grip on power. in russia hundreds of thousands

time mr stone yesterday we're talking several days after the e.u. introduced oil sanctions against iran and i know the iranian leadership has responded by saying the sanctions would do move home to europe none to ron mean here still since iran gets seventy percent of its revenues from oil do you have any fears about negative social reactions including strikes as people may lose their jobs do you take this somehow into account in your work. that these speculations are new to our country and our government or the power of the people all around ruling bodies or in power as a result of popular voting therefore our government and are all for it is a completely popular and our people have participated in all areas and spheres of our life from the very start of the revolution therefore as i've said there's nothing new about these talks which are actually quite outdated and irrelevant nonetheless they keep speculating on this matter of trying to stir up psychological
warfare inside our country or in the countries of the region or probably among people of their own countries that have enough of their own problems attempting to find someone else to blame for them we don't sell that much oil to your of illnesses and our european accounts don't have that much money. so you are starting to get this all stop the u.s. and the west as a how do not conceal that one of the main tasks of these sanctions is to get the oil prices for the iranian oil lower does decreasing their revenues from the oil iran saudi is they want a two we used to manipulate the political situation. i think. that i believe they've made a big mistake as this action results in turbulence for the oil and energy markets this very fact it can result in oil price growth in these conditions the west should expect the drop in the euro rate and the euro market this new decision will result in further economic problems which as we can see have affected them already
and so far they've been unable to find solutions with oil and energy markets will experience instability and turmoil and this factor can boost prices for oil and energy products and jeopardize the market security but this is quite difficult for the markets which going by previous experience is used to consuming certain kinds of oil and energy and this also brings up technical and economic issues at the same time we're not worried for iran at all we've ensured our efficient planning in advance and with god's help we will continue moving forward but in the year the decisions taken today by the west unilaterally will result in the escalation of their own economic problems covering the story iran ians nav as the rankins with the aggressive and military rhetoric being built up by the west bank and they aren't as i've said these words aren't new these speculations have been going on for thirty years and there's no news in it to the iranian people the people of iran are in charge and they always participate in everything we don't sense any problems
inside the country and if i may i would like to ask you about the recent killing of a nuclear scientist there have been other similar cases and as far as we understand the investigation into it has not made great progress so far why have there been no substantial results and who might be behind the youth killings think. this is clear is day and they admitted mossad and the cia as well as some european security services don't like to see nations progress they would like to have control and a monopoly over everything out of the great a rainy a nation of follows the path of searched. for new technologies it wants to stand firmly on its feet by means of its own strengths and produce its own knowledge they disapprove of this progress and they don't want to see other nations develop themselves the fact that they come over to such people's homes or attempt to murder an educated and broad minded university professor highlights the grave nature of
their situation it demonstrates that the us and israel have disgraced themselves in this matter that they speak of human rights and at the same time they officially perform terrorist attacks and promote state terrorism expansion. in their slogans we see their idle talk on fighting terrorism their deeds however do not match their words they brought their troops to afghanistan under the pretext of defending human rights and fighting terrorism and drug trafficking and drug reps of increased forty fold since the americans got there. the number of casualties among innocent men women and children has increased significantly and so has the level of instability in the region that we actually witness terrorism development in the region of drug mafia and drug related revenues have grown as well and we see contradiction between their words and deeds. the scientists assassination will only make the iranian people stronger and more focused on their goal will people understand that they've
chosen the right path the one of scientific progress the adversary doesn't want to see this happen that it would cause harm to them in the physical annihilation of people in full daylight is a sign of the adversaries complete powerlessness and despair on an issue and yes last i know that iran is having parliamentary elections in a month in many countries not only arab ones election may be used as a way to create provocations there are always some people unhappy with election results and this discontent made snowball i are concerned by this that a similar scenario man followed in iran. no thank god we've had twenty nine elections to date and this. election campaign will be our thirtieth election and it will take place in absolute peace and security like all the previous ones because our dear fellow citizens in all the regions all the cities and villages will willingly come to polling stations and cast their votes to designate their delegates to parliament to serve the purposes of development and prosperity for our
country. is that the start of the us as you know that r.t. has been comprehensively covering the situation in the arab countries as we have covered the wars in libya and syria we often heard complaints from the leadership that the intelligence services of other countries have stepped up their operations on the territories of the countries concerned in the past year the way many are ledged imaginaries in syria and libya who could see with our own eyes that some people were apparently not libyans but fought on the side of the rebels can you see any increase in the operations of intelligence services from other countries or any attempts to penetrate your territory at least in recent years since the latest events in the arab countries began. you see foreign powers and other enemies are at work everywhere they might also be present in our country but we do not feel we should worry about this of course we should look out for superpowers and our enemies attempting to interfere in the home affairs of arabic countries especially
in syria and in all countries where the people are in charge of running their nations they must keep track of such attempts or i don't know of other ways years worth of work until it's been about a year since the arab spring began a first even the iranian leadership hailed the movements in egypt in libya as expressing democratic sentiments but now this one here is past the attitude towards the events around your country has changed do you still believe those are people driven by their own democratic ideas or do you see hundred other countries in the events of the arab spring. we support any popular movement as long as people's demands are legitimate imperialistic regime of world supremacies is obviously trying to lead people away from the right path and neutralize the popular movement or transform it in favor of their own interests but it will have to get a pure straightforward all righteous path that people have been following you know what countries of the region however is stipulated by their willingness to defend
their. right which is a legitimate demand from iran's viewpoint but that is the biggest can one say that the instability in the region has considerably increased the narcotic drugs trafficking well we need our long kong yes afghanistan is certainly the focus of narcotic plantations now the americans and europeans are there and since they came narcotic drugs production has increased forty fold and it's a financial source for most terrorists who infringe the security of central asian states the states of the region and russia itself it's a threat not only for iran but for the region at large and russia but if russia fails to keep an eye on what's going on next to its borders and around the country this threat will most probably become a serious problem for russia itself it's a fact that both iran and russia host the main drug trafficking route where at the beginning of it because the drugs first penetrate our country then follow to turkey and then to europe and on the other hand russia is also on the route that it's
northern and because the drugs penetrate russia through central asia and then go to europe we suffer serious losses on this route more than three thousand seven hundred lives have been lost in the attempt to resolve this issue and given we as humans are convinced we have to go on with this ruthless battle so as to save our people and despite the fact that the world community does not lend us necessary assistance in this cause we're alone to bear most financial costs and human losses in order to continue the struggle shut down the borders and blockade the territory inside the country in order to prevent the trafficking so it seems iran and russia will have to take responsibility for the problem themselves that they've been in the u.s. in when was the one of our best i was just the pairing for this interview several colleagues approached me at r.t. asking if there was going to be a war between iran and the usa which is you're on phone. as well as well in let me say this again all those fabrications are not new. to us the islamic
republic of iran is a strong power capable of defending its regional security folly and the iranian people being a great and powerful nation are not afraid of those futile threats that. means of protection can be used. in global supremacy. between two thousand and five and two thousand and nine u.s. has spent fifteen billion dollars in the price to pay for the entire program that we are dealing with right now here in two thousand and eleven is another one hundred fifty billion dollars that's larger than many country's entire military budgets twenty things becomes the best form of trance.
