progress however the supremacy of process supermarket food could soon be over as a growing appetite for organic products means more and more people are taking up farming but there still is a long way to go as art is that it was called the reports of. the feast for the eyes but not necessarily for your stomach many would be shocked to find out what exactly makes its way onto our plates. if only people knew what their sausage is made of or how their yogurt was bottled they would be very upset and would stop buying anything at all of the shops. perhaps that's why there is a growing demand among people in russia's main cities make products unfortunately for them russian shops have little to offer what is sold as eco and bio friendly is often far from it. by abroad as have found a niche in the market i think starboard environment and you fashion for a healthy lifestyle. there are no legal standards also defied labeling schemes for
organic produce in russia. so individual farmers define it in their own way but it's really on every farmer's own conscience. alexander is a computer programmer who turned to working the land what started as a hobby is now a mini industry with several farms in the moscow region covering livestock fish vegetables and habs and he's even aiming for his first harvest of black caviar from sturgeon as he breeds not far away from moscow if you're ever on the big business simply can't afford to produce ecologically clean product they use pesticides to boost growth and lower the cost of everything i do is pure without a drop of chemicals. this new market in moscow had said and ambitious task to offer its customers and unprecedented range of eco products what started as an attempt to bring organic food to the masses turn. to be almost impossible in
reality no russian farmers can produce all this let alone in quantities needed for a large city so anything truly eco and bio friendly remains a luxury only a few people in russia can afford. despite soaring prices for anything organic individual farmers find it hard to make their businesses profitable beaten by the supermarkets with their cheap processed food by the sec even founded and online organic store trying to help small farmers survive and at the same time improve the quality of life while food conscious customers just like came. initially we simply wanted healthy stuff for our families and friends now we hand pick each person involved in the production of meat or bread that we sell so that we know where the food has come from and the business is growing. some going as far as saying russia with its plenty of land could eventually become an organic food basket for the whole world or very few in one hundred fourteen russia third half of the world and
we could easily get back to that but the state needs to start investing in agriculture. and while city dwellers are only starting to go back to their roots milledge is in russia's most organic far away corners are probably unaware of the treasures they could offer and russian con dike to be discovered. marty scary. the u.s. defense secretary has hailed afghanistan's involvement in peace talks with the taliban president hamid karzai has confirmed u.s. and afghan efforts at negotiating peace but artie's military contributor says cars i continues to avoid the real issues that prevent stability in the country. interview to a wall street journal was the most important public relations event for the president of afghanistan it was rather strange when the mr karzai
during this interview quoted unwittingly the former soviet president gorbachev referring to afghanistan as the moving war in full display. correctness mr karzai was carefully spared. from their answers. to most important challenges facing afghanistan right now that is their rampant corruption. that is suffocating the country. and. our growth. leading factors there could precipitate the implosion then a stand from within that was r t contributor currently of herself you can catch more of his analysis in our blog section at r.t. dot com also right there for you now are all mine explosive reflections from iraq

people are very dangerous why what is made you think bad have you ever been personally threatened by a chinese person no so why do you feel that way. they know kung fu i don't think were in the good of relationship with them so should we fear them is that going to make relations better and we should fear of them i think they should fear us i think there's a legitimate concerns about human rights there and i think tweeted to pay attention to what are their legitimate human rights issues everywhere don't we have them here in the us sure i think a different scale there but yes we do have another places when this there was stuff to find out so well that is a step to find out so well that will screw nobody's going to give us some money or would be but we're participating in that why is it their fault because they're acting smartly. is hard to resist last year i was in china i wasn't scared at all i don't think you should be scared i don't think we
should run our country like china or russia but i think there are some ideas and some kind of plans they have that help their economy so maybe we can learn from that that's more emulating and looking up to rather than fearing but we're tart to fear them why do you think that is because fear keeps you in control if you are afraid it's easier to be manipulated by somebody telling you to do something rather than questioning what they say everybody is freak scared to do because the news and all the media makes people's care then specially in america why china and russia in particular are we made. to feel scared because they're very powerful that's what we think ultimately they're going to be a part of the growth but sure they need us as much as we need them so why are people scared of that mire they painted in this more of a picture ya know it's always the same so maybe we should get to know them invite them over for coffee like that whether or not you believe the world should fear china and russia the bottom line to me is the old adage those who live in glass
