5:02 am
jew cheese of the president of the russian federation i swear to protect and guarantee the rights and freedoms of our citizens to observe and protect the constitution of the russian federation to protect the sovereignty independence and territorial in. a vast state to serve its people faithfully. but the task he's taken on could be more like an uphill ride experts believe any leader who's been in power for five six seven years in a difficult position because people get used to him and taken for granted he has to then reinvent himself international challenges have changed greatly since used to previous terms while russia's new president faces an absolutely different situation at home the country has become more politically active and with so many reforms promised by putin during his campaign he has no choice but to start fulfilling them and the set out for reform and not a reform on paper but something we'll something that both the opposition and you
5:03 am
know the regular people not just in moscow but all throughout russia can see that this is really putin to point the eyes of the world are also on what putin's foreign policy will be many believe it's likely to stay close to that of me that individual however statements on foreign policy have given a hint that we may see something new off to roll first he insisted russia will firmly defend its interests over american missile defense plans in europe he also said he would not be going to the next g. eight summit in the united states it has already made some analysts speculate that the relationship between moscow and washington would not be so rosy the return of putin to the presidency. heralds a strong not a decisive shift but a strong shift in emphasis away from the failed reset policy that hillary clinton offered when video first the people and its president and i think it's been clear
5:04 am
that the reset has brought nothing positive for security or stability in russia it was a time bind measure on the part of washington simply to allow it to build more of its ballistic missile. and since solutions and put more pressure on russia's security situation the next few months say experts will be instrumental in defining putin's long term strategy the question is whether russia and the world will see any you putin willing and able to face difficult challenges. r.t. moscow. people which the new government probably needs to convince most are the opposition better of crowds before and after the inauguration some of the most recent protests and mascaras altered in ugly clashes with police and hundreds of arrests artes and is now in political analyst to meet the bar bitch examen who's driving the demonstrations. who is the russian opposition well of course it depends
5:05 am
who you ask but also if you take a look for yourself what you'll see most often are a lot of different colors organizations and parties well to help us kind of decipher who's who in this i think we can call it modern russian opposition is to me he's a political analyst for voice of russia radio thanks for being with us i want to start with alexis the widely and surrogate so just because they're the most well known at the moment they're constantly getting arrested and being released just briefly tell us who they are and why they've become the prominent leaders not. by typical leftist populist like will does he use them more into corruption and nationalist. but let's focus on the flanks for a bit looking at this video this is this is sunday's protest which for the first time turned really ugly you see these there's so and the left front it's called what what are the main focus of that party it's a flag we saw a lot of on sunday you see the red flags with the red star so this is an image
5:06 am
abroad people might think it's you know a communist party because they read russia communist so what they write because it will do so for recently because. he is. left for aung to the reason why all of the communist party of russian federation human being chronically ill participate in all these actions get him constantly arrested that's his style with flagons that they're on ikea's where he is the traditional. russian and i guess what does that mean in terms of there are several groups which do not i why themselves with. the communist party over the sunday i was there and they were clearly some people who were trying to provoke violence a lot of these so-called anarchists you can see here basically were running into the riot police and also were wearing a lot of these masks. let's talk a little bit more about the nationalist fight that we see sometimes i believe it's white there it is. what's this if it means someone you know all of the groups all
5:07 am
the nationalist groups that are strongly opposed to the current government strong appeal to white. bread. but who also but would not like to be associated with communists or leftists what does it mean that. when we see tens of thousands of people on the streets of moscow as opposed to small groups like we see here which we saw after the inauguration sit ins trying to happen why when you see the thousands of people the masses do we see so many different flanks if they are so anti putin can't they just get under that banner all these groups have a mutually exclusive view they're not simply i think in his degree not simply contradictory they're just in the school of the nationalistic he was put in of being the liberal the liberal secular which you know would be the nationalist the leftist think he was which you know the soviet social system is a liberal secular bordering on reviving the soviet imperialist so they can't agree on anything the only thing that they can agree on is that they don't like what they

5:22 am
question is how soon are they going to see that chase and what kind of crowds are they really going to have and the world is asking precisely the same question. is is that people rejected because it would then france would also france for many reasons one of them was this based on arrogance so we can hope but in foreign policy is going to move in the right direction that is less arrogant. be it arrogance or something. there was no hiding nicolas sarkozy's eagerness to lead the libyan intervention sending french warplanes in first he of course betrayed himself all along as deliberate of libya but he kept that extremely quiet as allegations kept coming out about his relationship with gadhafi you know the much good sacco's he has created an awful image of france we don't want divisions within the french society we don't want the bombing of arab countries we are

friends of the arabs. a lot is being branded france's new hope or gadget on task ahead of him to sort through the euro crisis and clean up an image which many think is no longer in line with what's traditionally french while foreign policy took a backseat during the campaign a lot it did throw out two moves one go head to head with germany's angela merkel on renegotiating the e.u. fiscal pact believe me she will experience in the coming month the negotiation power of america because america will face an election in one year and will not be willing to compromise we said with a french president and to withdraw french troops from afghanistan a year earlier than planned it's a sign that i think he wants to scale down the foreign policy but i would guess that is going to be more considerate of what is happening in the in the rest of the world and will focus on economic issues within europe at the end of the day all the
