his writes this all happened after his interview with mr asante where they talked cyber security and freedom in the face of ever expanding government surveillance here is a bit of it don't miss the whole thing here and r.t. running all day know that some sites technology enables those also billions of every communication then there is do do do the other side of the coin is what we do with it we could admit that for which you go to tactical one there are some indeed some legitimate use investigators investigating them but goes nowhere but goes and so on may need under the supervision of the judicial authority to be able to use such and such tools but the question is where to drill this judicial supervision where to go to the control of the citizens can have over the use of those technologies and this is a policy should so there was jeremy and a bit earlier internet freedom activists mari mccarthy the co-founder of the
icelandic digital freedom society he too was stopped at the airport and questioned by u.s. officials about julian assange which he says he was later followed and approached by three u.s. officials in washington the latest night and asked to become an informer sounds like something from the movie as far as the number of people detained or arrested shortly before or after the show might be breaking some television record among other guests there was the president of the bahrain center for human rights and i believe our job was beaten up at bahrain international airport and held in prison for almost a month after recording an interview with julian assange so what can we expect as a few now the court has authorized mr songes extradition to sweden his lawyers have less than two weeks to contest that decision in sweden he's facing quite thin allegations of sexual assault which reportedly had to do with consensual but unprotected sex but. his supporters are saying it's not
a songes unprotected sex that they're looking into but rather a way to get him to sweden where it would be arguably easier to hand him over to the united states judging by the reports about people being interrogated one might say that the u.s. is building a case against julius orange. locally you know you can watch the latest edition of julian in sunday's uncompromising interview program in full on this channel next hour. it's a partnership widely seen as a counterbalance to the influence of the us russian president vladimir putin's high profile visit to china is expected to foster already strong ties aside from all of us economic interests the neighbors also see eye to eye a major international dispute such as the syrian conflict what also sharing concerns over u.s. expansion in the asia pacific region artie's a lecturer jet skis in beijing for us. it is the first state visit to put in as russia's president to china something that each president of any country can do
only once during his presidential term definitely many experts have already been saying that the fact that. china as one of his first destinations to becoming russia's president for the third time means that russia and china will continue to be very strong strategic partners the main focus among all the media and everyone here was at the for invective the relations between beijing and moscow and certainly the two leaders have reconfirmed that they have unified stances on most of the issues they touched upon the growing concerns in the asian pacific region namely certainly the growing a military presence of the united states here and that's where. both said that they have a unified stance as well as mentioning the events in north africa and in the middle east basically we do understand as well that russia and china have a unified position on the syrian conflict and that is not going to change according
to both leaders all this very close cooperation between china and russia has certainly gaining some concerns in the west in the united states particular because china is growing stronger every year both economically and militarily so definitely this is raising some concerns but now we have confirmed from the both leaders that this cooperation will not die down and will only increase and only strengthen in the years to come. our correspondent in beijing will be more later this hour about china as well when a former i.m.f. economist tells us how beijing's monetary muscles helping it punch its weight against the u.s. these days. if the united states gets into so much economic trouble right that it will have to borrow money and if only china has the money to provide the u.s. china might say well we don't like your military presence in the pacific your naval presence and you have to you know get rid of that sort economic power can always be leveraged for political and foreign policy objectives.
the u.s. and its allies are preparing for syria's transition of power the white house says president assad handing control to the opposition will help bring an end to the fifteen months of bloodshed a number of western and arab states have long been pushing for regime change while assad's maintained his nation's real war comes from outside meantime reports of a merge suggesting britain is planning to set up camps in syria where troops and agents will help the rebels fight against the government militias global cultural beliefs that would only make matters worse. i think it will actually increase the likelihood of revenge killings kind of sectarian tension along mixed areas where. revenge operations would start to happen more and more people in i think syria now it being point where the conflict can be pulled back from a. sectarian civil war to kind of some form of political framework but once there
is actively groups on the ground in syria and what. kind of formula they are in there they are likely to increase the prospect of bloodshed you watching r.t. from moscow still to come with me kevin though in courting the caucasus. now there's a resurgence of russian influence in the region it's only natural that america want to do something in return hillary clinton promises to boost american military support for georgia during a visit there we bring you expert analysis on what might be washington's ultimate goal plus painting by numbers we tell you what portion of shouldn't work turn out to be fake and why most collectors money choose to keep quiet about it. punishments for violations during public rallies could get tougher here in russia a draft bills getting social and political groups fired let's get the details and
show it for multispeed all of it is outside russia's parliament the duma in central moscow peter hi there tell us a bit more about what's being planned there and why it's being brought in them. well the ruling united russia party proposed these changes to the law that would see an increase for fines against those people taking part or all get ice the un sanction protests that's being debated at the moment just behind me in the state duma building as it stands at the minute if you're caught taking part in an unsanctioned protest you could face a fine of around sixty euro all fifteen days in prison. now should this proposal go through we could see those fines rice shop to as much is seven thousand euro for those people who will take part in these unsanctioned protests now this has caused a storm amongst opposition political parties as well as online in the blogosphere is the actually during the debate that's ongoing some opposition parties being
trying to to drag out the debate as long as possible to try and put off any time at this school could be adopted those who are in favor of these changes to the law we're talking really about the ruling united russia party here defended by saying it brings russia into line with the rest of europe now if you look elsewhere in what type of fines and what type of sentences can come into play take from for example where if you take part in all through a demonstration of protest and you wear a mosque or anything that would cover your face to the try and hide your identity you could face a fine of forty five thousand euro close up history years in prison in switzerland but fine could go as high as seventy five thousand euro so they're defending this by saying well it puts it back in line with the the rest of europe the reason the united russia has deemed that these changes that will need to be made a comes off the back of the wave of antti government protests that we've seen
really since december of last year when the parliamentary elections they were held note for the majority of these protests of being peaceful of things however in spring of this year we saw them to non-state and we had seen of some protesters attacking police officers a number of police officers were injured during those demonstrations and lawmakers saying that these changes need to be made in order to make sure that that russia cities in the streets of russia cities all safe and those trying those police officers trying to keep those streets safe kept safe themselves ok pedro of the things bringing some to the friendship. cairo is bracing for a million strong demonstration in tahrir square with revolutionary forces calling for the execution of ousted president hosni mubarak is amiss they're expected to use the rally to score points for their presidential candidate who is up against mubarak's last prime minister in the run off now with us is tom bond reports next the protest mood shows no sign of abating and could see egypt slide back into
anarchy. revolution renewed but these protesters never expected to be back in time risk where just a year after they ousted the dictatorial president hosni mubarak he's now serving a life sentence but after thirty years in power talking the system has built is proving to be an even harder task than talking the land everything is like collapsing from at all dust economy so this gave me the impression is that probably be one will not you know rise again they are already exhausted or too exhausted to go to the square and protest again but it's really impressive they went again and the op now protesting dalia has been involved with egypt's revolution from the beginning she works to monitor civil and political developments in the country or lack of them many egyptians are dismayed that little if anything has changed under the ruling supremum council of the armed forces or skaf in fact with either.
care. is continuing mubarak's regime and offering only very minimal sessions to that evolution whenever he has to these demonstrations erupted after the notorious court decision that not only sped mubarak's life but acquitted his sons and six former security officials protesters say the second insult is the heavily criticized presidential runoff election a straight choice between the old guard in the form of an x. mubarak man and the religiously conservative muslim brotherhood people did not go to squares and streets again to protest those two big punches in the face more than they saying this is their last chance to win begs that country others believe more time is needed even though it may be a bumpy ride i don't think injured for their political as they were in the next
four years. surgical operations which you would see through the more. things but i think that would be most terrible. successful but until then the revolutionaries plan to fight on which brings us back to rio. protesters here of describe their renewed revolution to me rather like a train but it term and not have it the rails either by religious hardliners or by the regime but they're equally desperate to stop it running out of steam lest egypt go off on the wrong track altogether tom watson r.t. to africa square cairo. the u.s. is posting its military support for the caucasus country of georgia in the pledge came as secretary of state hillary clinton visits the nation with nato membership global risk advisor daniel wagner believes america's got a wider agenda that stretches beyond georgia's borders. secretary of state clinton is looking to achieve in the caucuses what america is trying to achieve more
overall around the world and that is to continue to enhance its image and its ability to influence what's going on in the region the caucuses have been largely ignored by america for a great deal of time and now that there's a resurgence russian influence in the region it's only natural that america would want to do something in return there are pockets of conflict in the region that concern the united states and the concerns of course other regional powers but let's not forget where the caucasus is located it's in russia's backyard it's only natural that russia's historical relationship with the region and the various countries would be superior to that of america certainly at the present time mrs clinton's biggest influence is likely to occur in georgia let's not forget that georgia has had a historically close relationship with united states for a number of years now and that it was particularly close during the bush era
georgia certainly seems to want to be heading in the direction of nato and i think that she is likeliest to see the most success and the most influence there. just check and i will. discover there are of course ten years for tweeting and. for insulting the prophet muhammad on twitter. also one exclusively to us as well our website why random school drug screenings in the u.s. . should. good lumber touring. was able to build. tombs mission to teach me. this is why you should
it's more user brief there's been scuffles in ukraine over a new language law which is passed will officially allow russian to be used alongside ukrainian in some regions around one thousand people both forgets the proposal rallied outside parliament with the bill won an initial majority its opponents of mainly nationalist key to keep ukrainian is the only official language
for these supporters mainly russian speaking citizens who make up around half of the trains population live event coming up now. queen elizabeth's diamond jubilee celebrations are drawing to a close tens of thousands of a cheering people are in front of buckingham palace waiting for the queen to appear on the balcony with her family these are the shots got coming through for the now she's jude to. make a brief appearance on stage and of course later on tonight will be a two minute message as well filmed in a private apartment at the palace set to be broadcast at eight hundred b.s.t. on radio and t.v. in the u.k. and across the commonwealth course the queen's concert as well prince philip unable to attend what was happening last night absent from his side he remains in hospital with a gladder infection let's the scene outside buckingham palace there but a great day again but at least not raining like it was yesterday it's been a long four day special bank holiday in great britain and the people there letting their heads a little bit partying waving the union flags and showing the best of british.
now they say a picture is worth a thousand words and in the art world you're also taking millions of dollars to pay for said treasures as well of course however experts no claim of free heart for all work sold today it's scary a fake artie's laura smith caught up with one russian collector who's happy to share the forgeries he was tricked into buying. very important works of art go under the hammer every day in london's west end but how can i love as be sure of what they're buying according to scotland yard a staggering fifty percent of all art sold is fact what we're looking at these days is a very considerable increase in faking of twentieth century art i've seen a number of provincial auction houses and. so fakes. a considerable scale and i think it's something that we we will accept
a lot of forgeries are also sold on websites but it's not just internet bias we can be taken in by the full which is brush the latest auction house to come into the spotlight with christie's which is involved in a high court battle with russian tycoon victims axel but he paid more than two and a half million dollars for a painting he thought was by prominent russian artist buddies. and find out later that it appears to have been signed for several years after. the case will go on for nineteen days and according to experts will probably cost more than the painting itself which is one reason why more of these claims don't go to court but another buyer of russian art when confronted with lemons made lemonade eager to see a cough discovered his art collection meant to fund his retirement was mostly forgeries now he's displaying the paintings as
a warning to others. when we have gone money where ashamed to talk of it i'm trying to be the person who says don't be ashamed of showing us because we believe you people who know when we're down to move now the time has passed and we realize we made a mistake and it's important to publicize the mistake because the quantity of russian figs is such the. discredits national art. busiek office showing each of his pictures in longsight two different city fits one a testing a painting is genuine and one proving it scorched sometimes that even signed by the same person and his collection is just the tip of the iceberg that's going to be a lot more of this to be misled quite high profile prosecutions in the u.k. and germany of so-called master forger's and what those cases of the field is that some excellent fakes from hundreds of excellent fakes have been placed on the
market and maybe that's just a very small part of it how croft's message is clear it doesn't matter whether you're buying off the internet or a reputable auction house buyer beware. r.t. . twenty three minutes past six in the evening now moscow time daniels in the business journalist talking to lee italy desperately needs people to pay their taxes i was there a couple weeks ago and it was that it was the talk of all the people in one little village there but the authorities a clown that ordinary people have maybe been paying the taxes absolutely it's the richest people you're going to tell me in a minute i think setting a bad example we've got absolutely the boss of the world's oldest bank is on trial now for corporate tax fraud but the news just in it's alleged well he headed rival unicredit deprival thora teams of hundreds of millions of europe for a complicated tax avoidance scheme involving britain people have been protesting about the fact that they're having to bear the brunt while the rich people get away
