that's have a look at the headlines for. stalemates how the un or russia and china rebuffed the western backed draft resolution on syria and moscow saying it's great wording leaves the door open for foreign military intervention. by return to on the rest a dozen dead and thousands wounded in egypt as protests as their attempt to do some of it turns on a grip on power. in russia hundreds of thousands gather for rival rallies and of next month's presidential vote massive pro and anti government munches.
us a police clamp down on the occupy movement a tent city in central washington is the latest to be addicted after tamping bad news fourteen. the so-called reset in russia u.s. relations has been struggling to make headway with the ongoing dispute between the two countries and america's controversial missile defense system europe more on that now no special report. the most vital national security interests of the united states would be most effectively realized not through hostility to russia but through cooperation with it. i think russia and the united states can we just settlement of the establishment of a global missile defense system. 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 news 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 of europe not just some european countries we want to european allies and friends to join in on missile defense strategy. in 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 through snowbound russian forests under the cover of darkness. shrouded in secrecy the people in need to perform training drills and test the hardware on the roof. suddenly the convoy comes to a halt. street. crossing it's quite a challenge for the drivers of motor vehicles weighing. as specially considering. heads.
of heavy launches safely reach the opposite bank with the most hazardous huddle 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 would be crushed if we didn't have them. that's all there is to it. when you hear them rumbling past you get
a sense of great might there is no dealt 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 withdraw from the strategic arms reduction treaty and said it will introduce measures to counter the missile defense . 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 or a station in turkey obviously this will also until the is their mission of a base in spain for american ships equipped with the system. it is obvious that the missile defense system will be targeted at the russian federation rather than some mythical middle eastern countries possessing
a 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 in. canada too is going to join the project anti missile functions will be given to the agency responsible for north america's air and outer space defense. japan has decided to assist the nato missile defense shield its taking part in the manufacture of a just intercept of 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 poland are ready to allow nato as missile defense complexes to be placed on their territory. if there
to be controlled by russia's president whose. chief of the armed forces. some time ago russia suggested to the united states that they jointly control space over the middle east using a similar radio transmitter station to azerbaijan if nato has told us agreed to cooperate they would receive reports of any unauthorized iranian missile launches that washington would see as a threat to america. 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. and is doing is they're using very simple. nothing simple about rockets but the using very early generation rocket technology
the only rockets they could build. would be enormous in size and not be mobile. they 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. a 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 is the fence is not needed. but it doesn't if you're radical threat to russia. my guess is that russian. 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 than with the united states currently building it's a. 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 a 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 closer to. the coach tells them that a compass and a mobile phone likely to help. the problem is that we can only get our bearings by. they are more. exposed to sunlight. experiment.
where they can hide from the harmful effects of radiation. the close up team has been to the hub bar of screen. where the country's middle wealth starts its way across the ocean. now our team goes to the area. named dr len in good looking to a different character to represent itself. for local businesses are striving to build the aviation capital of russia. and for the four by fours are made and can be tested to the limit. welcome to the screech of. russia close up
propulsion the russian missile still hits targets with absolute precision mage's on its if job is making sure that the missile launches always in working order moving military hardware. is always fraught with danger. with this is a highly accurate weapon it has 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 of a nuclear strike you this means a direct hit. the united states cannot give russia a legal guarantee that the missile defense system is not directed against it this would be the wrong move as the matter consumes the defense of need two countries. russia feels compelled to take countermeasures because the united states has refused to give legal guarantees demonstrates that the deployment of the american
missile defense system in europe is not directed against russia. nato countries are in mood to list straight to the deployment of them military installations to europe. new american military bases may soon be set up in kazakhstan. turkmenistan and tajikistan. about once russia has been encircled by military bases a new geo political reality will emerge we need to take this reality into account already today but and take measures to control potential threats to our security. meanwhile the view that the missile defense shield is too expensive is getting increasing currency inside the united states itself it provides financial backing to the armed forces more of a. the project is making millions of dollars from nato sub contractors in various
countries. between two thousand and five and two thousand and nine the u.s. has spent fifty billion dollars and the price paid for the entire program that we are dealing with right now here in two thousand and eleven is another hundred fifty billion dollars that's larger than many country's entire military budgets. some of the funding for the missile defense system in europe is being put to use in poland and north the small village of rijeka is home to a high security installation. the base used to be manned by polish air force pilots soviet made fighters still serve as a reminder of the fact that poland was once a member of the warsaw pact an organization formed off to world war two by the u.s. as in response to nato. the old warplanes will be scrapped by the u.s. troops who arrive here shortly they'll be bringing missiles with them. local
residents have already been told that they won't be getting any compensation for having the new arsenal placed so close to their homes. and we're not overjoyed at the prospect of these weapons being deployed a few hundred metres from our homes. you've got the missiles will pose a threat to the local population of over one thousand people. elizabeth a demand sca a schoolteacher came to reject a book from warsaw a long time ago she knows only too well what the villages think about the military installation. that means the most noise about it is most of the people even here are farmers. and of course they were very warm it's an absolute hearing news of deployment for the time being though the basin we. waste.
but even first graders in the village of logic of a are aware of the military base . but the schoolchildren don't fully understand the threat so that teaches bring them up to date in the classroom. good morning you found three stake your seats. today we start with a history lesson in. elizabeth a demand teaches her pupils about military conflicts she insists that people should never forget history's lessons if future conflict is to be avoided. the military base in russia given is in full view of the school as the teacher tells her pupils about world war two they visualize the base as a symbol of the past the present and the future. is the sh'ma of german troops once use the territory just outside of school and later polish pilots
served here. no doubt you know that an american military base is going to be set up here. there is going to be in you and tree in the history books because of it. to come and transforms the legacy of past wars into works of art on the shores of the gulf of finland has found hundreds of sea mines made during world war two and the cold war the artist uses them to make remarkable objects this mine for example will become a fireplace. i think it will make a nice fireplace. the seaman's picked up by come in sync ships the artist's so-called military style doesn't mean he's succumbs to fashion instead it's an attempt to create works of art using something that was
originally intended for destruction and murder. you can make anything you like from these shaped minds. you can make sculptures out of them you can even make a race car. come in those from news bulletins that missile defense components will soon be installed close to his country. he says nato missiles can easily be turned into beautiful sculptures. in. the amount of effort spent on making such weapons would be much better spent funding the arts. the people involved in this experiment testing their capacity for survival in
a nuclear off the mouth have finally reached their destination and abandoned military bunga now they need to take a breather and warm up near a campfire. knows that this kind of training is useful in any case participants to strengthen their skills and prepares them for any emergency in their regular daily lives. but. it's great that there is a growing number of people who want to learn survival skills even if nothing catastrophic happens they now have a different psychological attitude. this will prepare them for other small emergencies but. those who have gone through survival training school a fully aware of the fact that the location of their exercise is fully protected.
offices at the radar station including major. control the entire space so. a european russia. control center has given instructions to track an artificial earth satellites and. all modern racial information is fed to the outer space control center. first so it acquired classification artificial it says lloyd dismissed fourteen fifty as m of three hundred thirty three. the stuff makes no secret of the fact that the russian radar transmitter sees european air space in great detail. on the station's unique radar tracks even submarine launched missiles in the barren sunlight sees the sea of a whole sky and around the north pole. our system is being expanded in response to the expansion of the european missile
defense shield. with the aim is to match the measures being taken in europe that the new stations are being commissioned here to respond to nato is activities. thrown at them. we will buy new means limited or alter our plans with the deployment of missile defense components in europe. russia has not closed the deal it will continue dialogue with the united states and nato on the missile defense system it is ready for practical cooperation in the sphere.
