producer was only institute in china to study social economic development is this is the world is yet to see a major standoff between washington and beijing this in fact is a quick taste of our interview with him which you can see in full in about just under twenty five minutes time in fact. they have been building their military but it's still you know the us has a military that equal all the other daughters of the world put together and i've heard of we've heard a lot of talk about malta over world but last century it was a story. to be very simple minded about this is the us and china the. world is going to be dominated by a bipolar connection of china and the us people will make countries. calibrate their actions against what they perceive will be the response of the us
or china. moscow's warning it could make a preemptive strike against nato missile defense shield plan for europe if the u.s. persists in going ahead ignoring the kremlin's opposition russia's military choose a detail and concerns about the plan of the international conference in moscow with representatives from the fifteen nations the he's innocent no he's got the details missile defense has been in a deadlock for some time now between the us russia and nato and that sentiment was reiterated by russian officials at this summit that that deadlock needs to be resolved or russia will take responsive measures we've heard talk of preemptive strikes are pretty harsh rhetoric coming from russia that's because according to officials the lack of response that we've seen to their concerns by the u.s. and nato missile deployments really in eastern europe is no longer a plan it's well underway in our poll in pro mania even as far as turkey and russia
sees this as a major threat to their national security what russian officials are looking to demonstrate today is first of all information that they that they've put together through research that proves first of all that broke states according to the u.s. and nato which they say the system is against like iran and north korea don't have the capabilities to reach europe so there's a lot of questions surrounding the goals of this system so close to russia's border they also want to demonstrate through a computer model how in fact the system does pose a threat to russia's national security in terms of details and are hoping that they will take the step in trying to pin both the u.s. and nato how much of a concern this is to russian sides and how much they need some kind of response if they're going to make any kind of headway washington continues to stress that this deployment is no way meant more to directed against russia and this is something quite frankly that russet just isn't what they want to see and have been demanding
are written legally binding guarantees that this is a difference. system is not directed towards russia especially so close to its border with that said no major breakthroughs are expected it's not like here let's not forget that when i think we have when president obama told me a better thing in there part of my would. like to hear of course in many countries across the globe what it seems like we're going to hear from officials as this two day summit wraps up is that there needs to be baby steps that this is a difficult issue both sides are going to push to the end to defend their interests the meeting of the european central bank in barcelona sparked unprecedented security measures in spain reflecting public anger over savage of sturdy cuts to try to deal with the country's budget deficit several border controls have been restored for the event of the authorities fearful of protests university of athens economics professor yanis varoufakis told us people have every reason he thinks to

more of the earth from mexico next to the present fracking the process of extracting natural gas from rock on land has been given the go ahead in the u.k. however the techniques causing shock waves amongst residents near those drilling sites who claim they are being properly informed of the potentially disastrous environmental impact of a bennett explains. it triggers earthquakes and could poison water supplies but fracking just got the green light in the u.k. a government study says the controversial gas extraction technique these days despite causing two tremors in the popular coastal resort of blackpool last year environmentalist's fear is a smokescreen hiding the far more dangerous side effect of large scale deadly pollution what it fails to address is the fact that both quakes and seismicity you know those issues are actually a new very small fraction of the other associated problems with fracking so the
report doesn't really do justice to any other aspect totally says the department of energy climate change to regulating this hydraulic fracturing or fracking extracts methane gas from underground millions of gallons of water and chemicals including hydrochloric acid pumped into a three kilometer deep well that high pressure when the rock cracks gas escapes but so too can deadly toxins and radiation previously locked in the ground this site just sixty kilometers south of london is one of many the government intends to drill and the people who live here have had no say permission has already been given for fracking to start and that's the hole that will be pumped with water at one thousand meters it's not shallower than most of the fracking sites which means the risks of tremors a much higher but so too the chances of toxic chemicals seeping into the water supply and that's the worry for residents who live nearby the fact that fracking
could take place four miles from my home makes me feel very angry very disillusioned very disappointed in our legislators things absolutely exasperated that they can even countenance sanctioning because it is an eco sidle technology it's short term it's short sighted halfway between the capital and the coast bulk i'm surrounded by a network of reservoirs the provide water to much of england densely populated south. the fear is the toxic cocktail left by fracking will pollute supplies only a quarter of the carcinogenic chemicals pumped in actually come out again fracking has already begun in america these online videos show what happens if the well casing splits taps flaming after gas leaked into the water system but britain insists it's a cleaner alternative to cold local campaign is far from convinced we really need to be looking at oh all we're going to move away from fossil fuels and what's happening at the moment is that the government is diverting its attention and its
resources towards. energy such as new clear fracking don't increase resilience and don't move as a way to reduce. the impact fracking is banned in france and bulgaria because of public outrage but in the corners of england's countryside people's fears are no match for the energy giants might have been it r t sussex. the whole story is one we've been following at length from the web site r.t. dot com in fact while you're there for a check that out there's a lot of other stories as well latest top pictures of the day these stories might interest you right now one and a half million tons of debris from last year's tsunami in japan is set to reach the u.s. pacific coast were appalling by october discover what its impact might be story it's taken that long to get across the ocean and one of the most famous paintings in the world ever screen has sold for wait for it a record one hundred twenty million u.s.
well with. its technology innovation all the list of elements from around russia we've got the future covered. watching r.t. several e.u. members are threatening to boycott the. euro twenty twelve football championship rather over ukraine's treatment of its jailed former prime minister yulia tymoshenko claims she was beaten by prison guards now with this story today let's catch up without his lectures esky in kiev with the details. it certainly is getting darker and darker for key of in relation to the euro twenty two well football championship which starts in less than forty days from now the european officials expressed their wish to boy call it the tournament here in ukraine the list already consists of the german the czech republic presidents the head of the euro commission and the german chancellor angela merkel who even said that the
german national football side should boycott their participation in the upcoming summer storm here in ukraine and poland angela merkel says that unless tymoshenko is released she would not come to ukraine for the euro twenty two all football championships all in all definitely this creates a very great deal of pressure on key of last friday's terrorist attacks and it also already created serious concerns about the security during the summer storm and but now the euro twenty two also become a victim of political pressure from the european union on ukraine the ukrainian leadership reacted to all these statements coming from the european union but saying that this kind of rhetoric puts the countries back in the cold war and in fact there may be right in some sense because the one of the vivid examples of a political boy called during a sporting championship sporting event was in one thousand nine hundred eighty one sixty countries refused to come to moscow for the olympic games there and then the soviet union four years later replied by not sending fourteen countries fourteen republics of the soviet union to the olympic games in los angeles certainly the
