i. was. breaking news on russia's parliament approved the use of military forces in ukraine following a request by president putin and an appeal for help from authorities in crimea. now and assault on administrative buildings in ukraine's crimea ordered by care has thwarted by local self-defense forces in response the republican prime minister has taken control of security personnel and sped up a referendum on greater autonomy. federation council wants to recall its ambassador to the u.s. after threatening words from president obama.
1:01 pm
live from austria center in moscow this is r.t. international with you twenty four hours a day but we start with our breaking news this hour and that is that russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to approve the deployment of armed forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes president putin had asked the senators to support the move because of the extraordinary situation ukraine which represents a threat to the lives of russian citizens our compatriots and the contingent of russian armed forces located in the autonomous republic of crimea according to an international treaty stated in the constitution of the russian federation i asked the upper house of parliament for permission to use armed forces new crane until the situation there is stabilized a lot he said in english has been following moscow's reaction to those events in crimea and the decisions in the russian parliament. being made with the lightning speed at least what it seems like however it doesn't mean that we should jump the gun literally and figuratively speaking because the final decision rests with the
1:02 pm
president to put in who has to say yes or no whether to deploy troops on the ground in ukraine and he hasn't done so yet that point has been emphasized by his spokesman of but he does have the permission to do it just in case the reason for perhaps a need for this permission from the federal council is the fact that russia is precious officials including of course the president and both houses of the russian problem they're incredibly concerned with the situation surrounding the radical extremist groups. particularly of the national nationalistic perseveration who are openly gay and who are permeating. the areas branches of the ukrainian government and are making themselves quite clearly present in a lot of places in ukraine where a lot of russians actually do reside and it's protection of russian citizens and russian nationals in ukraine particularly in the east of the country and in the
1:03 pm
terms republic of crimea that is the reason for the decisions made by the federation council and of course for the appeal and actions of the russian president. the authority is in ukraine solvent republic of crimea the russian president for help following an attempt to capture key administrative buildings by men sent by the new authorities in kiev but if you get this kind of brings us the details. sent from kiev tried storming in and capturing several local government buildings here firing weapons and using. the so-called self defense squads were able to repel these attacks but perhaps this was the turning point after which the crimean prime minister announced that he's temporarily taking over the control of all the crimean security services including the. the navy and border guard said he also asked russia for assistance to help protect the local population from any further of possible threats coming from kiev where he said it
1:04 pm
was hijacked by extremists as a result of a cool now another thing which the local authorities did today was they changed the de date of the referendum aimed at deciding whether or not the crimea should have more independence from kiev the date was changed from me to march so it should be held in the very near is to future just to explain the east and the southeast of ukraine where we are now are regions heavily populated by ethnic russians around ninety percent of people leaving living in these regions they consider russian as their native language this is according to official statistics and the general understanding here is that many of the new laws passed by the new afterwards there in kiev are aimed against russians. appeal for russia's help and its staunch opposition to the current authorities in kiev is rooted in the region's complicated history crimea was long part of russia and in the u.s.s.r. it belonged to the russian soviet republic until nine hundred fifty four and that's
1:05 pm
when the soviet leadership decided to hand it over to ukraine back then of course nobody thought that the u.s.s.r. would break up in the way it did back in one thousand nine hundred ninety one and crimea was left as part of independent ukraine but the majority of people living there continue to associate themselves with russia and as you can see more than half the population of the peninsula are ethnic russians ukrainians and crimean tartars are a minority there in the republic now even more people ninety seven percent of the whole population in crimea use the russian language in their daily life and work so when the any authority is in kiev put forward a language bill revoked the rights of native russian speakers it sparked protests and calls for greater independence from the ukrainian capital. well i'm now joined live from london by an exam a curious he's an expert on international law who's written extensively on eastern europe and xander thanks very much indeed for joining us now from the point of. international law from the point of view from that perspective where does russia's
1:06 pm
approval for the use of force actually stand them if it does indeed send forces to ukraine. the point you want the russian position is based on an agreement that was made between mr yanik overreach and the opposition leaders as these then were on the twenty first of february which is of which russia in which russia is named and in which in effect it is a kind of can't guarantee that all that agreement was torn up. what then happened over the course of the next couple of days is that mr yanukovych which was illegally overthrown ball is in effect it's like a web if you start an raveling part of it then the whole thing basically falls apart it's very difficult it seems to me for people who want to criticize the russians for doing what they're doing to start saying to start discovering legality
1:07 pm
now when they have so completely disregarded it up to now it depends in terms of international law a great deal upon what the russians do but the important thing to understand is that there is no legitimate government at the moment in. the government in kiev isn't. and of course there's no decision god made yet there's no decision made of course they've made it very very clear that there's no decision as to whether those troops will be deployed but your thoughts if they were to be deployed what sort of impact could that have on the situation. i think that in the crimea it will probably stabilize is the point to make about this particular resolution is that he's not in fact just confined to the crimea it's it's about the ukraine in general and we just have to wait and see what would happen what will happen in the rest of the ukraine there's been
1:08 pm
a great deal of disturbances in the eastern ukraine but in the crimea itself i think essentially it's an accomplished fact the crimea is not a bearing decisions and here it would require force here to bring the crimea to heel and russian intervention there would prevent that and would stabilize the situation apart from any form of intervention by force or the presence of troops is there any political way out of this deadlock between the crimean authorities and the kiev authorities of course you don't recognize each other. well indeed what the russians are saying is that we should go back to the agreement that was made on the twenty first of february which would effectively mean mr young and coach going back to kiev resuming the position that he had as president and we going back to the proposals that were made then now that may sound a very surreal lot option but who knows all sorts of extraordinary things have
1:09 pm
happened up to now for the rest my own personal view is that we will probably have a situation like we've seen in many other places where kier effectively loses control of the crimea crimea goes its own way and the cysts situation is kept in a kind of legal and political suspended animation and how would our hero reza harwood crimea go its own way there's talk of federalization or perhaps could even become a republic of russia well federalization can only happen with some agreement in kiev which at the moment there is no sign association with russia well if we're talking about an exception was russia the russians at the moment a ruling that out and nobody in kiev nobody in crimea of the seems to be supporting that most likely we would have a kind of de facto independence in which the crimea effectively is economically
1:10 pm
politically and as we see militarily integrated into russia but is not formally part of it and what about kiev itself this this government which is regarded as illegitimate i mean it wasn't elected was it it's an interim government was not elected what what what do you see as the solution there snap elections is that possible in this chaotic situation and how obviously there has to be an election of some sort to get a legitimate government in there in kiev. indeed it does that the problem is the elections that are being called which are on the twenty fifth of may are not recognized as legitimate by many people in the ukraine and it's entirely understandable why because the people who would be administering those elections are the people who overthrew the government on the twenty second of february and those people who support that who supported that government. are not going to trust the people in here it's very difficult to know the way forward in this situation.
1:11 pm
there might have to be negotiations but it's entirely possible it seems to me the various regions in the ukraine are simply going to go their own way and are going to increasingly little the tension to walk kiev says and we've seen the video here it is a mess you couldn't alexander of if in effect people are talking about civil war it is already very messy i hope civil war doesn't come i don't think it will because the areas of the areas are actually fairly clearly divided from each other the other there are a minority is of course rain and you know in crimea you know one has to recognize the tartars and also the ukrainian so that it's not going to have that clean cut that's a problem is it it's not going to be cleaned up but that's precisely why the presence of russian troops might stabilize the situation i know there will be many people outside the ukraine and in the ukraine will be very angry about their presence
1:12 pm
there but the fact that they are there could be a stabilizing factor acting as a restraint on all the various parties involved let me just quickly ask you finally the u.n. security council is to hold an emergency meeting over the ukraine crisis just in the next few hours now how could that affect russia's potential military deployment now in crimea. i do think it will make any difference frankly russia has a veto position on the security council is already made its decisions china i understand which is not a veto supporting country. of possessing country has made it fairly clear that it's somebody with russia in this matter i think the decisions are going to be made in moscow not in new york i examine a curious expert on international live from london really interesting here for thank you so much for your time well the federation council has also called for russia to recall its ambassador from the u.s. because of president obama's aggressive rhetoric john to current joins me live now
1:13 pm
to discuss this further going to tell us more about this reaction from moscow what was behind it well bill as we understand moscow has not yet decided to withdraw the russian ambassador to the your west but the russian federation council or the russian senate and now we hear that also the lower house of the russian parliament that is the russian duma are preparing to address president putting with such a proposal but also they're suggesting to call the embassador back for consultations and this does not mean as the lawmakers say the breakup of diplomatic relations now whether or not president putin will go through with this is not is not clear at the moment there has been no u.s. reaction to this specific news about the possibility of was a roll of the russian ambassador and the white house so steer attentions on friday when president obama said russia would pay if it interfered in ukraine take
1:14 pm
a listen. are now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the russian federation inside of ukraine the united states will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in ukraine. well and just on the heels of that statement president putin takes up the request of the crimean parliament and sends sends it to the russian parliament for approval which approves that request president obama that earlier said if russia doesn't intervene militarily he would reconsider his trip to russia in june for the g eight summit this is clearly a new low in u.s. work for the nations that have survived many storms in the past what this one will bring is still in the fog we know the u.n. security council is meeting this saturday to discuss the situation in ukraine what's happening kiev with the takeover of power does not easily fit into the framework of international law in fact from a legal standpoint it was
1:15 pm
a power grab of course then people of mixed emotions take sides and call it different names but for as long as there is no elected power in ukraine it's a volatile situation where people who do not agree with the takeover of power that took place in kiev feel left out of the political process so a lot for the u.n. security council to discuss the u.s. is expected to use the u.n. charter's territorial integrity principle to press moscow not to into being going to can learn from washington thanks very much indeed for that well this is all t. international here in moscow do stay with us as we continue to report on those forced moving developments in ukraine. winter is when the sahara comes to life. always is palm trees are being harvested.
1:16 pm
people are waiting for the biggest event of the year. the desert festival. this is video out of this race leading camel races have spent the last year preparing for the grueling marathon. the day before the race there's a heavy sandstorm overcoming the power of nature is a never ending challenge. a desert winter. this is a just. children of the industrial revolution we can face but every age seems to be running out of steam as well as boil coal gas water don't treat. this energy crisis like this. obama is wise and more sudden he's just futuristic. might like. to.
1:17 pm
continue with breaking news here not international russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to another deployment of military forces in ukraine until the situation that stabilizes let's listen to the statement that was made. having considered the appeal of the president of the russian federation and in the interests of the safety of the lives of citizens from the russian federation our compatriots and the personnel of the russian military contingent located in accordance with an international agreement on the territory of ukraine in the its almost republic of crimea the federation council decides first to give consent to the president of the russian federation to use the armed forces of the russian federation on the territory of ukraine for normalization of the political situation in that country second this resolution shall take effect from the date of its adoption. when the president putin had asked the senators to support the move
1:18 pm
following an appeal for help from the authorities in crimea an autonomous republic in the south of ukraine that does not recognize the country's new leadership the president's spokesman has however stressed that the approval does not necessarily mean it will be implemented in addition to approving the troop deployment the federation council is planning to ask putin to recall russia's ambassador from the u.s. because of president obama's earlier statements on the situation in ukraine and the move comes in reaction to the threats by the u.s. leader that moscow's actions in the ukraine crisis could prove costly well earlier we spoke to international affairs writer said the jet coverture believes that russia can help prevent civil war that is now a real possibility in ukraine. any attempt by the mom boxer a seed that has gained power in key of to establish its writ in not only crimean peninsula but also in the such other southern parts such as a desk nikolayev and eastern provinces donetsk and hard core of can only lead to an
1:19 pm
outrage civil war ukraine is internally divided between people in the center and the west who have a radically different self perception and radically different values and images of the future for themselves to people in the east and the south and in the long term i think that the russian leaders realize that some form of federal if not confident will order is the only way to prevent further bloodshed and outrage disintegration of this somewhat hybrid country ukraine is heading told woods disintegration or at least a form of federalize ation to which the russians can make a stabilizing contribution. well for more the situation in ukraine and the international reaction i have with me still in the studio international relations expert mark so the boda we were talking in the last hour about it a disturbing development which you monitored all the line you discovered this
1:20 pm
latest development where we know the crimean authorities of course were asking russia for help but the leader of ukraine's far right group who actually has a place in the new parliament there in kiev it's the right sector that's what he leads he addressed the chechen militant leader modeled urging him to support ukraine and step up the fight against russia now just talk more about that in a moment but i just want to remind ourselves of who this man is the islamist leader of the chechen extremist movement russia's equivalent of bin laden he's responsible for deadly terrorist attacks across russia that have taken the lives of dozens of civilians including bombings on the moscow metro and that of an international airport now he's also encouraged the separatist movement in chechnya by declaring it an islamic state and he's currently wanted in russia on charges of kidnapping murder and treason so what do you make of the fact that ukraine's far right group a member of the new parliament is now asking for help first of all i think it would be wrong to characterize this. caliphate of
1:21 pm
doku umarov as a separatist movement this is an international jihad movement who stated game goal is to create an islamic caliphate not just an entrenched year but across all of southern russia where there is a muslim population and this is an international effort he has been had troops his islamic jihadists fighting in syria are fighting in afghanistan so this is an international jihad as threat not simply a national separatist movement as it might perhaps have been some time in the ninety's. it's really no surprise that these. right sector. extreme western ukrainian alter nationalists have made this appeal to mars they have discussed this online before in fact during the chechen wars
1:22 pm
in the one nine hundred ninety s. several of their leaders who are now. in control of kiev openly fought with the chechens against the russians and quite loudly boast about how many russian tanks or how many troops they killed so this is actually you know in alliance of devils if you will that we have seen before and so it's really no surprise that in this situation that dmitri euro show again who is not only the right sector leader and in control of the paramilitaries that are basically in control of the streets of kiev at this moment but now he has yes been given a position on the. security and defense council as the deputy within this regime and russia can only regard this as a national security threat and that call to arms then could become
1:23 pm
a reality where he is that she called for this chechen separatist leaders help well it's not outside of the realm of possibility that we would see a response from them and some small terrorist attacks but lately with regards to sochi and the possible threat from their russian intelligence and security services have cracked down quite a bit and probably reduced a great deal of their capability but i think it's more indicative of is the extremist element and the nature of this push regime that is incredible here that is why people are so frightened in crimea and eastern ukraine that far right element within the new government. and for those who just joined us people may be perplexed as to think well why should they be under threat their lives ethnic russians who are living side by side with ukrainians why on earth would they have to leave the country leaving feel threatened it's because these people who have been a i would say the vanguard certainly of the violent element within the euro my don
1:24 pm
movement and now has positions in government to a large extent their sense of national and call troll identity is based on a kind of violent phobia and perceptions of cultural persecution by the role of the russian empire and the soviet union and they've carried that into today let's see how those fears are being manifested now throughout the country because thousands of ukrainians are currently protesting against neo nazi groups and the my dad movement demonstrations are taking place in a number of cities across the east and south of the country with. the deaths among them and some sources suggest one hundred thousand protesters gathered to tell the new authorities to leave the city and there are reports of clashes and gun fire causing some injuries in donetsk crowds afford to tell the new leaders they are not welcome and demonstrations have already taken the center of the city and raised the russian flag over the local administration so lots of reaction within ukraine itself let's quickly talk about the international reaction u.n.
1:25 pm
security council due to meet on this quite soon what expect to come out of that well certainly with russia being one of the permanent five members of the security council on having a voting this there will not be any substantial developments within the security council meeting russia obviously has several stabilisation. goals in mind with its military forces and will probably not be willing to negotiate. with the western powers united states and the european union that are backing this puts regime until those goals have been met and they are satisfied that stability has been. also we have just gotten. indications from the u.s. that they have not changed their military posture at all with regards to this crisis and that their focus is on the bluesy. thank you very much indeed talking
1:26 pm
about the fear is. that many ukrainians have know all of this fast moving situation in the reports of fell's and of ukrainian seeking to flee the country and apply for asylum in russia will be a question over told me why no really feeling a sense of printing people in ukraine are very war of course their worries as fear is growing in ukraine as there is absolutely no clarity of what is happening in the country was going to happen in the near future and many people in ukraine mostly in south and eastern parts are not at all accepting the new leadership as legitimate and they are feeling very insecure because of that with their right to weigh in hardliners just putting themselves at the court of the upheaval and seeking to control the new government mania right now rushing to banks trying to withdraw cash from their bank accounts from a.t.m.'s and that's on top of
1:27 pm
that that led to the national bank of ukraine interview stage temporary laments the pressures of migration as just said that the number of asylum applications received from ukraine has increased significantly giving numbers such as one hundred forty thousand asylum applications have been received within the past two weeks alarming figures indeed and these figures even increase in the nearest future as this situation just ask just getting out of control. so ukraine is now balancing on the verge of default the country's finance ministry claims bankruptcy is looming it's estimated more than thirty five billion dollars in aid will be needed by the end of twenty fifteen meanwhile its foreign debt has climbed to run one hundred forty billion that's nearly eighty percent of ukraine's gross domestic product of the country being torn apart by those defying and supporting the new leadership the economic situation is only getting worse or do stay with us for more on the
1:28 pm
international reaction on the current crisis in ukraine stay with us. judy cox a utah mother out of spite but an entire line of t. shirts at a popular chain store after a local mall the reason that she bought them was because she feels that the images of nearly naked women on them violate her local towns decency code she wants to make it clear though that she feels the store has the right to sell this type of shirt just not displayed in an exterior window ultimately her plan is to return the shirts on day fifty nine of the store's sixty limit let's hope for her sake they don't have a no return policy i bring this up because this is a great example of a nonviolent form of protest that actually works cause the scandal and more importantly it will make the company lose a few dollars technically the girls on the shirts are even fully exposed believe me
1:29 pm
i checked thoroughly and i would even call them r. rated the local communities have the right to be more conservative than the rest of the nation if they want to be and it's good that judy cox actually did something rather than just sitting at home on the air complaining about moral decay across the country if a housewife from a small mormon community could stand up to the man what's stopping you but that's just my opinion. is the easiest place of billionaires and dictators to launder money why because it's the only country in the world you can have anonymous corporations a lot of americans create over seas and then those great anonymous corporations in america with a lot of their money in america general electric they make billions of dollars in revenues they pay less than twenty million dollars in taxes because of massive fraud because america is the easiest place to commit mass.
1:30 pm
we continue with our breaking news on r.t. and if you just joined us to remind you or to inform me that russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to approve the deployment of armed forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes president putin had asked the senators to support the move because of the extraordinary situation in ukraine which represents a threat to the lives of russian citizens our compatriots and the contingent of russian armed forces located in the autonomous republic of crimea according to an international treaty as stated in the constitution of the russian federation i asked the upper house of parliament for permission to use armed forces new crane

forces of the russian federation on the territory of ukraine for normalization of the political situation in that country second this resolution shall take effect from the date of its adoption. when earlier president putin had asked the senate to support the move following an appeal for help from the authorities in crimea an autonomous republic in the south of ukraine that doesn't recognize the country's new leadership the president's spokesman has however stressed that the approval does not necessarily mean it will be implemented in addition to approving the troop deployment the federation council is planning to ask putin to recall russia's ambassador from the u.s. because of president obama's earlier statements on the situation there in ukraine and the move comes in reaction to the threats by the u.s. leader that moscow's actions in the ukrainian crisis could prove costly or political analyst alexander package told me earlier that russia has been serving as a stabilizing force in ukraine since the beginning of turmoil that. i think russia
1:45 pm
at each point of this crisis three months back has really been destabilizing force here i mean they let's remember they they offered a lifesaver to ukraine back in december fifteen billion dollars and the president who practically rejected it so russia is doing the next step but this is just a preparation for the next step and they keep emphasizing that they're waiting for a legitimate government to be in place once again unclear and i think russia's not being allowed itself to be provoked right now but it's taking the minimum necessary to protect its own people and its own treaty interest. representatives of the new ukrainian government are already threatening to quite literally go nuclear a deputy from the civility party ones that kiev could back go back on its own constitution and restock its nuclear arsenals within six months and started charging it has more in this. double standards going to war washington suffer
1:46 pm
sleepless nights and paranoia when it comes to the nuclear capabilities of countries like iran around nuclear program around stokely or program iran's nuclear program but the us turns a blind eye when it comes to provoke it if statements coming out of key have one member of the ukrainian parliament's ultranationalists aboard a party warns that a fresh a dozen tread carefully it will be dealing with a nuclear power that's the rhetoric despite ukraine signing up to the international nuclear nonproliferation treaty of one thousand nine hundred four there is a double standard when it comes to the way that the united states deals with supposedly nuclear threat from iran which let's not forget there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that iran intends to develop nuclear weapons for for aggressive military purposes unlike iran the warning from the ukrainian lawmaker includes an actual deadline of just a few months this in a conflict torn country where even the most pessimistic predictions ended up becoming
1:47 pm
a reality but none of that seems to disturb the us the money that we can't use to be the poor in the hungry in the united states and in europe that money is going to support nazis in ukraine with nuclear ambitions who are looking to destabilize the region and whose sole goal is the destruction of russia is yet another example of hypocrisy flying high from a country that touts itself as the world's leading democracy and r.t. new york political and economic analyst martin sci fi's from the globalist news website says democratic leaders should not make nuclear threats. these threats are probably extreme an irresponsible bluff but it's very alarming to hear them being made in the first place the new government which is now emerged didn't keep kiev and other figures like the opposition statement needs to act in their response a bone manner to earn the deserved respect and trust and cooperation of the
1:48 pm
international community that comment is disastrously counterproductive and should be seen as such. well let's return now to my guest and analyst he's in the studio to tell us what he thinks so far all of those developments in ukraine mark we have heard from the new ukrainian government in kiev that they will mobilize their forces in response to this possible deployment of russian forces in ukraine now what the actual ukrainian military listen to this new unelected government that's one of the real questions of the hour and we've seen quite a few signs quite a few indications at this point that this putsch regime in kiev has no effective control over their military or intelligence services reports in the crimea are coming through that there are no loyal forces left to kiev in the crimea
1:49 pm
that all of the troops stationed at the bases in the facilities there have either surrendered or indeed have reports are that they've gone over to the russian side and i think much more significantly. there are reports both within the ukrainian press starting early today and then confirmed by members of the russian senate just a few hours ago that a ukrainian ship. on operations in the mediterranean the hetman. reportedly has removed the ukrainian flag and struck up the russian naval ensign and his streaming on its way back to serve a stop will in fact the reports were that this so-called prime minister of the putsch regime are sunni yatsenyuk requested from turkey that the ship be stopped and not allowed transit through the strait of darkness not only is this
1:50 pm
a ship but this is the flagship of the ukrainian navy and it's got to be incredibly demoralizing blow so i think there's a real. whether they can command any military forces so there may not really be. an opponent for russia to engage with. mention of a russian force in ukraine is already perhaps having a stabilizing effect yes. certainly when it comes to the idea of a state on state confrontation between russia and the ukraine which it doesn't appear at this point that that is really taking right sort of course the tensions with the fears that people have in ukraine of the far right in the right indeed even suggesting they will ban the use of russian in crimea which was just passed through mentioned in the new parliament so that's an indication of the sort of pressures that could be exerted on ethnic russians from this new government. there
1:51 pm
were a whole host of legislation passed by this this. parliament that were a real indication that they intended a very hardline right wing alter nationalist stance that would have threatened the cultural and possibly the other rights of the russian ethnic and russian speaking peoples of the ukraine right let's talk about the far right group element within this new ukrainian government the leader of the right sector and he has a place in the parliament addressed the chechen militant leader this is disturbing developments which you spotted earlier online urging him to support ukraine step up the fight against russia get your reaction on that just a moment but just to remind you. is the islamist leader of the chechen extremist movement and an international terrorist russia's equivalent of bin laden he's responsible and for deadly terrorist attacks across russia and in the it has
1:52 pm
claimed those attacks that have taken the lives of dozens of civilians including bombings on the moscow internationally metro and. he's also encouraged the separatist movement in chechnya by declaring it an islamic state and is currently wanted in russia in charges of kidnapping murder and treason mark a very disturbing development that a member of a european parliament as such should be actually in cahoots or trying to be in cahoots with somebody. yeah. it's really been quite shocking all along that the western press and governments have ignored the presence and steadily increasing power and influence of dimitri the right sector and other affiliated nationalist groups within this might don movement and now push for regime in kiev it's no surprise that he has made this appeal because there have been previous alliances during the chechen wars in the
1:53 pm
one nine hundred ninety s. between western ukrainian right wing figures who fought in the chechen wars against russian troops. so his appeal and he made it not only to the local morph in the islamic caliphate but of a greater threat and. much more interest to the russian stabilization forces in the crimea he also made this appeal to the elements within the crimean to thor's who one of their leaders at least proclaimed that they would call up arms so this is doubly a threat now my fears are. with this paralyzed putsch regime headed by the new york within. kiev not being able to mobilize the military not being able to command the intelligence services. available that really control the streets in kiev that have now
1:54 pm
declared a mobilization of the zone is this right sector paramilitary troops how long is it before they feel that now is the time for them to take power and that they are the only ones who can deal with this situation and then we could have a complete fascist nightmare in kiev well certainly very alarming thoughts there we've been on air for the last three hours pretty much nonstop and we've seen the developments unfold very quickly just a final force now what we can expect over the next twenty four hours here just briefly if you can hear what i would hope to see is a deescalation of tensions certainly. the western powers have not made any statements that would indicate that they intend to get military involved. in support of this push regime and against the russian stabilisation operations but
1:55 pm
those operations are to continue if they are in fact implemented by the russian president until stability is restored to the country and at some point as this government in kiev gets more and more panicked and falls apart the question is going to be raised can stability be restored by any way other than russian forces restoring a responsible government to kiev thank you very much indeed for your thoughts on all of this now we'll of course be tracking those developments in ukraine as the turmoil continues in just a few minutes this is r.t. international you stay with us. winter is when the sahara comes to life new oasis palm trees are being harvested.
1:56 pm
people are waiting for the biggest event of the year. the desert festival. this is true it is that out of this race leading camel races have spent the last year preparing for the grueling marathon. the day before the race there's a heavy sandstone overcoming the power of nature is a never ending challenge. a desert went to a nutty. as you don't know if you don't pay chorus your norris plans to release. everyone in my life that i cared about their goal much and then. i came to skint well. i was so national champion in track and field and also i was able to go and qualify
1:57 pm
for the olympic games. you know nine hundred eighty eight i started to experiment with that the drugs i had lost all the financial means that i. was really on the street. black large brown can't. break can't drink. in two thousand in time one of the first things released by wiki leaks was a secret video recording that actually looked like a video showing two american action political actors opening fire on a dozen people in iraq and this is going to means to live in a society images of violence become normal this is what the sense of isolation and lack of empathy look like. when we try an experience into
1:58 pm
a spectacle only disassociate our. and by any action. activity we also have to say from certain kinds of marilyn vos but i absolutely am frightened of the potential games desensitize people we know they can because the military uses games places. of war it is not simply shoot but it is chilling and chilling exacts a penalty of the killer. people for whom. it is defined by the popular media that.
1:59 pm
but you know the premise is the only industry specifically mentioned in the constitution and. that's because a free and open press is critical to our democracy but. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and our press we've been hijacked like handful of transnational corporations that will profit by destroying what our founding fathers. mark and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on in the world we go beyond identifying the problem try rational debate and a real discussion critical issues facing. you know ready to join the movement and welcome the big picture.
2:00 pm
of. breaking news on t.v. russia's parliament approved the use of military forces in ukraine following a request by president putin and an appeal for help from authorities in crimea. and across the east of ukraine thousands rally in a dozen cities against the current government in kiev shouting pro russia slogans inviting to protect their land from nationalist groups. the federation council wants to recall its ambassador to the u.s. after threatening words from president obama. and also the leader of ukraine's follow right group calls on international terrorist docket the mother of a man responsible for terror attacks across row. sure to step up attacks against
2:01 pm
moscow. live from our studio center in moscow this is art international with twenty four hours a day and we continue with our breaking news here on r.t. international russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to approve the deployment of armed forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes president putin had asked the senators to support the move because of the extraordinary situation in ukraine which represents a threat to the lives of russian citizens our compatriots and the contingent of russian armed forces located in the autonomous republic of crimea according to an international treaty as stated in the constitution of the russian federation i asked the upper house of parliament for permission to use armed forces new crane
2:02 pm
until the situation there is stabilized well it is a negotiator has been following moscow's reaction to events in crimea and the decisions in the russian parliament. being made with the lightning speed at least what it seems like however it doesn't mean that we should jump the government literally and figuratively speaking because the final decision rests with the president president putin who has to say yes or no whether to deploy troops on the ground in ukraine and he hasn't done so yet that point has been emphasized by his spokesman. but he does have the permission to do it just in case the reason for perhaps a need for this permission from the federal council is the fact that russia is a precious officials including of course the president and the both houses of the russian parliament are incredibly concerned with the situation surrounding the radical extremist groups and particularly of the national person of nationalistic perseveration who are openly phobic and who are permeating. the areas branches of
2:03 pm
the ukrainian government there and are making themselves quite clearly present in a lot of places in ukraine where a lot of russians actually do reside and it's protection of russian citizens and russian nationals in ukraine particularly in the east of the country and in the terms republic of crimea that is the reason for the decisions made by the federation council and of course for the appeal inactions off the russian president well earlier the authorities in ukraine southern republic of crimea also the russian president to hope for an attempt to capture key administrative buildings all men sent by the new authorities in kiev. brings us the details on that. overnight groups of armed men sent from kiev tried storming in and capturing several local government buildings here firing weapons and using sound grenades the so-called self defense squads were able to repel these attacks but perhaps this was
2:04 pm
the turning point after wish the crimean prime minister announced that he's temporarily taking over the control of all the crimean security services including the police to merge each of the navy and border guards and he also asked russia for assistance to help protect the local population from any further of possible threats coming from kiev where he said power was hijacked by extremists as a result of a cool now another thing which the local authorities did today was they changed the de date of the referendum aimed at deciding whether or not the crimea should have more independence from kiev the date was so changed from me to march so it should be held in the very near is to future just to explain the east and the southeast of ukraine where we are now our region is heavily populated by ethnic russians around ninety percent of people leaving living in these regions they consider russian as their native language this is according to official statistics and the general understanding here is that many of the new laws passed by the new afterwards there
2:05 pm
in kiev are aimed against russians. crimea's appeal for russia's help and its staunch opposition to the current authorities in kiev is rooted in the region's complicated history crimea was long part of russia and in the u.s.s.r. it belonged to the russian soviet republic until nine hundred fifty four now that's when the soviet leadership decided to hand it over to ukraine back then of course nobody thought the u.s.s.r. would break up like it did in one thousand nine hundred ninety one and crimea was the next part all independent ukraine but the majority of people living there continue to associate themselves with russia and as you can see more than half the population of the peninsula are ethnic russians and ukrainian and crimean tatars a minority there in the republic. now even more people ninety seven percent of the whole population in crimea use the russian language in their daily life and work so when the new authorities in kiev put forward a language bill that revoked the rights of native russian speakers it sparked protests and calls for greater independence from the ukrainian capital well the
2:06 pm
federation council has also called for russia to recall its ambassador from the u.s. because of president obama's aggressive rhetoric and a chicken has the details moscow has not yet decided to withdraw the russian ambassador to the u.s. but the russian federation council or the russian senate and now we hear is that also the lower house of the russian parliament that is the russian duma are preparing to address president putting with such a proposal but also they are suggesting to call the ambassador back for consultations and this does not mean as the lawmakers say the break up of diplomatic relations now whether or not president putin will go through with this is not is not clear at the moment and there has been no u.s. reaction to this specific news about the possibility of that role of the russian ambassador in the white house has steered tensions on friday when president obama said russia would pay if it interfered in ukraine take
2:07 pm
a listen we are now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the russian federation inside of ukraine the united states will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in ukraine. president obama had earlier said if russia doesn't intervene militarily he would reconsider his trip to russia in june for the g eight summit this is clearly a new low in u.s. russia relations that it survived many storms in the past what this one will bring is still in the fall we know the u.n. security council is meeting this saturday to discuss the situation in ukraine what's happening kiev with the on takeover of power does not easily fit into the framework of international law in fact from a legal standpoint it was a power grab of course then people mix emotions take sides and call it different names but for as long as there is no elected power in ukraine it's a volatile situation where people who do not agree with the takeover of power that took place in kiev feel left out of the political process so a lot for the u.n.
2:08 pm
security council to discuss the u.s. is expected to use the u.n. charter's territorial integrity principle to press moscow not to intervene. and it's not just in crimea that people waving russian flags and protesting against the current authorities in kiev thousands have taken to the streets in cities across the east of the country and he's more of a notion i can tell us more about that she's joining me live now here on the international arena just how big was those rallies and did the protesters achieve anything. pollies rallies are very big it indeed what happened in kiev has shaken not only crimea this very special area but the entire eastern and southern ukraine this vast area traditionally russia leaning ten large regions home to more than half of the country's population and ukraine's industrial center never recognized the country's new authorities that took power they say following and
2:09 pm
armed coup and this is why we see thousands of people both officials and ordinary residents men women entire families and police ten major cities all over the area here protesting against the country's new monsters and against what they say could threat their peaceful future they see the afraid of radical aliments that played an important role in the coup in kiev and they are worried that they could come to their regions bringing violence with them and this is something of course they don't want and in fear of the repetition of the deadly events in the capital thousands took to the streets protesting and demonstrating and calling on russia to help in hardock of the city known as the capital of the eastern ukraine the largest cities of these area pro russian protesters managed to finally enter the government building that was captured by so-called pro my don demonstrators for almost a week and raise a russian flag and there was a competition by clashes and shootings and we're hearing that at least one hundred
2:10 pm
people were injured and this number is rising in another city of donetsk thousands again are on the streets shouting pro russia slogans and we are hearing that local authorities there claim that they would not obey kiev and they voted today to have a referendum over the region's taters while the majority of the population in east and south of ukraine say that decisions and laws taken by the country's new authorities are illegal and his my report about one of such decisions that was never recognized here. this is the golden eagles swan song the bear cook's ukraine's elite police force after weeks of deadly clashes in the capital kiev on the orders of the ministry of internal affairs to protect government buildings from rioters the barricades are no more. ukraine's new authorities were
2:11 pm
quick to dispense a thousand strong and to write unit. former officers were made to publicly kneel in western ukraine and beg for forgiveness while locals shouted shame pelting them with objects the country's acting interior minister posted on his internet page that the barrackers a finished for a new master for politico more for it's hard for us there are many among us who sacrificed their health and lives to protect citizens after twenty two years of service they just threw us out like garbage it's painful when you know the little denise of spent two decades in the ukrainian police he says the barricades in kiev were simply unprepared to face armed protesters while trying to carry out their deity yet choose any on friday during his press briefing in russia president called which did apologize for that i believe well it could be an armed big could offices
2:12 pm
have had a lot of cocktails thrown out there being shot at by live ammunition and killed i apologize to these courageous people who have stood up and suffered any new magoo. can't say that i don't accept these apologies at the end of the day we didn't fight for you in a covert and it was not him personally we protected we tried to protect the public order to allow mistake to function. within the body of a show that to one of numerous videos posted only to show in their backyards inaction to keep silent while watching. these videos you can't see what these people in the booklets of beating were doing before they were arrested what was going on that was a real war and only experienced people with special training could tolerate that and the violence they witnessed led to more violence when you were the british if you were in the bloody her head of barracuda veteran association who believes that
2:13 pm
the warring sides with off from equal. the burghers face their well financed and a well trained force there in a sense was excellent they knew about our tactics and strategies we were naked and blind. and. with their kids reputation now fatally undermined by the interim government in kiev there remains at least one place in ukraine where they still respected ukraine's southern autonomy as region of crimea recognized neither kiev's new masters nor their laws and they refused to design the barrackers in fact they reinforced them instead this is the headquarters of ukraine's very good here in crimea so for opel as you can see the building is surrounded by barricades and patrolled around the core so-called people's guards are here day and night they say they are worried about attacks this is the upside down reality of ukraine today those whose mission just until recently was to secure
2:14 pm
a peace and prosperity of the country's population are today in need of protection themselves people here have different backgrounds they're from different ethnic groups but they share one common goal this is only one. well protection of berkut from the army of folks who came to power as a result of the armed coup they controlling the puppet government petitioning decrees at gunpoint including disarming and sermon birchard where protecting their families birthed self-assertion are also our protectors against people who are committing an armed terror in other areas of ukraine but of all those who gathered here say they don't want to filings but if it comes here they would be ready to resist even if they have to pay with their own life's rich nationality from crimea. that reporting from the south of ukraine in crimea she says now stay with us as r.t. continues to examine the turmoil in the country.
2:15 pm
the easiest place for billionaires and dictators to launder money why because it's the only country in the world you can have an honest more precious lot of americans create over seas and then those sixty's create anonymous corporations in america so they launder their money in america general electric they made billions of dollars of revenues they paid less than twenty million dollars in taxes last year because of massive fraud because america is the easiest place to commit mass. put on your. face is your.
2:16 pm
pleasure to have you with us here on t.v. today i'm sure. so to recap up breaking news this hour russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to allow the deployment of military forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes let's listen to this statement that was made. that's why the of having considered the appeal of the president of the russian federation and in the interests of the safety of the lives of citizens from the russian federation our compatriots and the personnel of the russian military contingent located in accordance with an international agreement on the territory of ukraine in the its almost republic of crimea the federation council decides first to give consent to
2:17 pm
the president of the russian federation to use the armed forces of the russian federation on the territory of ukraine for normalization of the political situation in this resolution shall take effect from the date of its adoption. well earlier president putin had else the senators to support them the following an appeal for help from the authorities in crimea an autonomous republic in the south of ukraine that doesn't recognize the country's new leadership and present. that the approval does not necessarily mean it will be implemented but while the crimean authorities were asking russia for help the leader of ukraine is far right group the right sector reached out to the chechen terrorist dr mohler of urging him to support ukraine and step up the fight against russia while the model is the islamist leader of the chechen extremist movement and an international terrorist russia's equivalent of zama bin laden is responsible for deadly terrorist attacks
2:18 pm
across russia that have taken the lives of dozens of civilians including bombings on the moscow metro and the international airport in moscow doc who has also encouraged these separatist movement in chechnya by declaring it and islamic state he's currently wanted in russia and charges of kidnapping murder and freezing or marks he's still with me here as he monitors the rapidly moving developments there in ukraine and mark for the final time today interesting to get your thoughts about this development with more of the the russian foreign ministry that they've responded to this is exactly the nature of the the groups that the west of course have been supporting to get into power in kiev so will this extraordinary reach out to the chechen islamist leader make any impact whatsoever on the west's response now on how they deal with that newly appointed sofa point of parliament. i
2:19 pm
think it should be said that there is not any direct evidence that the west has in particular supported the rights act or or other groups they have supported the more moderate position politicians who accepted and cynically use the violence of these right wing groups in an attempt to ride the tiger of their violence into power so it's a cynical a game that was being played on behalf of both the opposition leaders who are nominally now the head of the government and the westerner who bear. those leaders well everyone knowing that the real force and continues to be the real force that politically dominates the might don and that now as a military group controls the streets of kiev and runs nightly raids elsewhere across the country to try to occupy buildings destroy statues and whatever the pogroms that they are conducting against communist party of region
2:20 pm
members. that is the real power and that is probably one of the primary reasons why both the south and the east the citizens knowing full well who these groups are what they represent and their rhetoric about either killing or kicking the russian ethnics out of the ukraine and both the russian government knowing full well this alliance. this devil's alliance between. the islamic jihad that goes back to the first chechen war and these right wing ultra nationalist forces from the western ukraine. shortie for the readers of the far right it's part of the kid to make them part part of the cabinet. has been given the position of the deputy to the security and defense council and his close ally also
2:21 pm
a former neo nazi peru be is the head of the security and defense council so there's no way that russia could not regard this as indicative of the extremism of this putsch regime in kiev and of the danger it represents not only to the to the people of the ukraine but also to the national security of the russian federation another call from kiev and that is for mobilization in response to the possible deployment of russia. troops in kiev looking at war here no i don't think there's no indication at this point that we are looking at a war between russia and the ukraine there hasn't been any reports of any serious amount of conflict so far the engagements that have been have been with crimean self-defense forces and president putin hasn't even officially deployed russian troops outside of their stated position right now of guarding
2:22 pm
russian black sea facilities and other buildings at the behest of the prime minister of. the autonomy's republic of the crimea within so there's no indication of any state on state conflict and indeed the inability of this. puts regime so far to mobilize any military or intelligence forces against russia and these possible defections that we've been talking about indicate that there's no real possibility of this perhaps in the future who would die for this government that has overthrown a democratically elected president i can't see the young men in uniform many of them in the ukraine be willing to die for this regime you've been on the air on and off for the last four hours with me and we've been seeing these dramatic events unfold in crimea and ukraine your predictions finally where is it heading in the next twenty four hours indeed in the next few days well i think the western leaders
2:23 pm
when they begin backing this euro dying my down movement. they were attempting to recreate a a second color revolution. second orange revolution in the ukraine they hoped that while the russian president was distracted with the sochi olympics that they would be able to bring this push regime into power and that russia would be forced to accept it. feet accompli as facts on the ground. and they even had the temerity the arrogance to then demand through to requests that russia continues giving fifteen billion dollars in economic aid to keep up the economy of this puts regime which is quite politically and geo politically orientated against them so obama played a hand and i think once again as we've seen several times and recently he suffered
2:24 pm
a major diplomatic defeat because they didn't properly assess the red line that this interference within the ukraine would present to the russian federation they underestimated president putin's reaction and i think right now we've got a situation where russia. is has taken steps that have really surprised the western leaders and have definitively taken control of the situation and has a real possibility of returning a steve and situation for the people of the ukraine and. perhaps down the road a sane and responsible. people the loss of a thank you very much indeed for joining us with your thoughts here thank you gradually or representatives of the new ukrainian government are already threatening to quite literally go new clear a deputy from these for border party warns that kiev could go back on its own
2:25 pm
constitution and restock its nuclear arsenals within six months i started checking the reports. double standards go to war washington suffer sleepless nights and paranoia when it comes to the nuclear capabilities of countries like iran around nuclear program around strictly a program iran's nuclear program but the us turns a blind eye when it comes to provoke it if statements coming out of key have one member of the ukrainian parliament's ultranationalists aboard a party warns that a fresh a dozen tread carefully it will be dealing with a nuclear power that's the rhetoric despite ukraine signing up to the international nuclear nonproliferation treaty of one thousand nine hundred four there is a double standard when it comes to the way that the united states deals with supposedly nuclear threat from iran which let's not forget there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that iran intends to develop nuclear weapons for for aggressive military purposes unlike iran the warning from the ukrainian lawmaker includes an actual deadline of just a few months this in
2:26 pm
a conflict torn country where even the most pessimistic predictions ended up becoming a reality but none of that seems to disturb the u.s. the money that we can't use to be the poor in the hungry in the united states and in europe that money is going to support nazis in ukraine with nuclear ambitions who are looking to destabilize the region and whose sole goal is the destruction of russia is yet another example of hypocrisy flying high from a country that touts itself as the world's leading democracy and r.t. new york political and economic analyst martin c. from the globalist news website says democratic leaders shouldn't make nuclear threats. yes threats are probably big strong irresponsible bluff but it's very alarming to hear them being made in the first police new government which is now emerged to keep. other figures like the opposition state with the
2:27 pm
least to act in their response or to earn the deserved respect trust and cooperation of the international community that comment is disastrously card to productive and should be seen as search but we're getting reports of thousands ukrainians seeking to flee the country and applying for asylum in russia medina question over told me why so i'm feeling a sense of panic people in ukraine are very war and of course they're worried as fear is growing in ukraine as there is absolutely no clarity of what is happening in the country was going to happen in the near future and now many people in ukraine mostly in south and eastern parts are not at all accepting the new leadership as legitimate and they are feeling very insecure because of that with their right to weigh in hardliners just putting themselves at the court of the upheaval and seeking to control the new government mania right now rushing to banks
2:28 pm
trying to withdraw cash from their bank accounts from a.t.m.'s and that's on top of that that led to the national bank of ukraine interview stage temporary laments russia's migration service just said that the number of asylum applications received from ukraine has increased significantly giving numbers such as one hundred forty thousand asylum applications have been received within the past two weeks alarming figures indeed and these figures mean even increase in the nearest future as the situation just ask the latest getting out of control. well ukraine's now balancing on the verge of default the country's finance ministry claims bankruptcy is looming it's estimated more than thirty five billion dollars in aid will be needed by the end of twenty fifteen meanwhile its foreign debt has climbed to around one hundred forty billion that's nearly eighty percent of ukraine's gross domestic product of the country being torn apart by those defying and supporting
2:29 pm

2:32 pm
asked the upper house of parliament for permission to use armed forces new crane until the situation there is stabilized he said in english has been following moscow's reaction to these events in crimea and the decisions in the russian parliament. being made with the lightning speed at least what it seems like however it doesn't mean that we should jump the gun literally and figuratively speaking because the final decision rests with the president president putin who has to say yes or no whether to deploy troops on the ground in ukraine and he hasn't done so yet that point has been emphasized by his spokesman. but he does have the permission to do it just in case the reason for perhaps a need for this permission from the federal council is the fact that russia is verses officials including of course the president and the both houses of the russian parliament are incredibly concerned with this situation surrounding the radical extremist groups. particularly of the national
2:33 pm
a person of nationalistic perseveration who are openly risa phobic and who are permeating. the areas branches of the ukrainian government and are making themselves quite clearly present in a lot of places in ukraine where a lot of russians actually do reside and it's protection of russian citizens and russian nationals in ukraine particularly in the east of the country and in the terms republic of crimea that is the reason for the decisions made by the federation council and of course for the appeal and actions off the russian president will of the authorities in ukraine sudden republic of crimea the russian president for help following an attempt to capture key administrative buildings by all mins by the new authorities in kiev what is going to spin off has more on this . overnight groups of armed men sent from kiev tried storming in and capturing several local government buildings here firing weapons and using sound grenades the
2:34 pm
so-called self-defense squads were able to repel these attacks but perhaps this was the turning point after wish the crimean prime minister announced that he's temporarily taking over the control of all the crimean security services including the public the police the military the navy and border guards and he also asked russia for assistance to help protect the local population from any further of possible threats coming from kiev where he said power was hijacked by extremists as a result of a cool now another thing which the local authorities did today was they changed the de date of the referendum aimed at deciding whether or not the crimea should have more independence from kiev the dateless a change from me to march so it should be held in the very nearest future just to explain the east and the southeast of ukraine where we are now a region is heavily populated by ethnic russians around ninety percent of people leaving living in these regions they consider russian as their native language this
2:35 pm
is according to official statistics and the general understanding here is that many of the new laws passed by the new afterwards there in kiev are aimed against russians. crime is a pill for russia's help and it staunch opposition to the current authorities in kiev is rooted in the region's complicated history crimea was long part of russia and in the u.s.s.r. it belonged to the russian soviet republic until one thousand nine hundred fifty four that's when the soviet leadership decided to hand it over to ukraine but then of course no one thought the u.s.s.r. would break up like it did in nineteen ninety one well crimea was then left as part of independent ukraine but the majority of people living there continued to associate themselves with russia as you can see more than half the population of the peninsula are ethnic russians ukrainians and crimean tatars are a minority in the republic now even more people ninety seven percent of the whole population there use the russian language in their daily life and work so when the new authorities in kiev put forward
2:36 pm
a language bill that revoked the rights of native russian speakers it's part protests and calls for greater independence from the ukrainian capital or put on as an exam the puppet told me earlier that russia has been serving as a stabilizing force in ukraine since the beginning of the turmoil there. i think russia at each point of this crisis three months has really been destabilizing force here i mean let's remember a day they offered a lifesaver to ukraine back in december fifteen billion dollars. the president who. did it so russia is going to next but this is just a preparation for the next step and they keep them from doing that they're waiting for a legitimate government to be in place once again unclear and i think russia's not being allowed itself to be provoked right now but it's taking the minimum necessary
2:37 pm
to protect its own people and it's all. of these self-proclaimed president of ukraine alexander turchynov will be viewed by moscow as a war criminal if military force is used in the southeast of ukraine and this statement was made by the head of the lower house of the russian parliament in the southeast areas of the country thousands of taken to the streets to protest against the current authorities in kiev. has more what happened in kiev has shaken not only crimea this very special area but the entire eastern and southern ukraine this vast area traditionally russia leaning ten large regions home to more than half of the country's population and ukraine's industrial center never recognized the country's new authorities that took power they say following an armed coup and this is why we see thousands of people both officials and ordinary residents men women entire families and police ten major cities all over the area here protesting against the
2:38 pm
country's new masters and against what they say could threaten their peaceful future they see the are afraid of radical elements that played an important role in the coup in kiev and they are warry that they could come to their regions bringing violence with them and this is something of course they don't want and info. a year of the repetition of the deadly events in the capital thousands took to the streets protesting and demonstrating and calling on russia to help in hardock of the city known as the capital of the eastern ukraine the largest city of this area pro russian protesters managed to finally entered the government building that was captured by so-called chromite don demonstrators for almost a week and raise a russian flag and there was a competition by clashes and shootings and we're hearing that at least one hundred people were injured and this number is rising in another city of donetsk thousands again on the streets shouting pro russia slogans and we are hearing that local
2:39 pm
authorities there claim that they would not obey kiev and they voted today to have a referendum over the region's taters while the majority of the population in east and south of ukraine say that decisions and laws taken by the country's new authorities are illegal and here's my report about why out of such decisions that was never recognized here this is the golden eagles swan song the bear ukraine's elite police force after weeks of deadly clashes in the capital kiev on the orders of the ministry of internal affairs to protect government buildings from rioters the better coach are no more. ukraine's new authorities were quick to disband three thousand strong and to write unit. former officers were made to
2:40 pm
publicly kneel in western ukraine and beg for forgiveness well local shouted shame counting them with objects. the country's acting interior minister posted on his internet page that the barrackers a finished. product of war from it's hard for us there are many among us who sacrificed their health and lives to protect citizens after twenty two years of service they just threw us out like garbage it's painful. victor denisov spent two decades in the ukraine in police he says the barricades in kiev were simply unprepared to face armed protesters while trying to carry out their deity. on friday during his press briefing in russia president called which did apologize for that really well equipped and armed bear could officers have had more out of cocktails thrown at them being shot at by live ammunition and killed i apologize to these courageous people who have stood up and suffered. new magoo.
2:41 pm
well i can't say that i don't accept these apologies at the end of the day we didn't fight for you in a covert and it was not him personally we protected we tried to protect public order to allow the state to function. within the body of a show that to one of numerous videos posted on you tube showing the records in action he keeps silent while watching. on these videos you can't see what these people who have booklets of beating were doing before they were arrested what was going on that was a real war and only experienced people with special training could tolerate that and the violence they witnessed led to more violence of the british if you were in the lead to more head of barracuda veteran association believes that the warring sides were far from equal. the burghers face the world financed and a well trained force there recognitions was excellent they knew about our tactics
2:42 pm
and strategies we were naked and blind. and. with their kids reputation now fatally undermined by the interim government in kiev there remains at least one place in ukraine where they are still respected ukraine's southern autonomy is region of crimea recognized neither kiev's new masters nor their laws and they refuse to disarm the barrackers in fact they reinforce them instead this is the headquarters of ukraine's a very good here in crimea so for awful as you can see the building is surrounded by barricades and patrolled around the core so-called people's guards are here day and night they say they're worried about attacks this is the upside down reality of ukraine today those whose mission just until recently was to secure a peace and prosperity of the country's population are today in need of protection themselves people here have different backgrounds they're from different ethnic
2:43 pm
groups but they share one common goal this is only one. we're protecting berkut from the army of folks who came to power as the result of the armed coup there controlling the puppet government petitioning decrease at gunpoint including disarming and sermon birchard where protecting their families burped surfaces are also our protectors against people who are committing armed terror in other areas of ukraine but those who gathered here say they don't want to filings but if it comes here they would be ready to resist even if they have to pay with their own life's rich nationality from crimea russia's possible intervention in ukraine is being met with strong words from washington but some believe the move will actually provide security in a volatile situation the russian position is based on an agreement that was made between mr young and cove each and the opposition leaders as they then were on the twenty first of february which is of which russia in which russia is named and
2:44 pm
which in effect it is a kind of can't guarantee for all. that agreement was torn up. what then happens over the course of the next couple of days is that mr yanukovych which was illegally overthrown i think is in the crimea region what would be stabilising the point to make about this particular resolution is that it's not in fact just confined to the crying it's it's about the ukraine. and we just have to wait and see what would happen what will happen in the rest of the ukraine there's been a great deal of disturbances in the eastern ukraine but in the crimea itself i think essentially it's an accomplished fact the crimea is not a bearing decisions from kiev it would require force by like here to bring the crimea to heel and russian intervention there would prevent that and would stabilize the situation. if you can national live here in moscow stay with us
2:45 pm
for more on the current crisis in ukraine we continue after a short break. here on three bureaus you don't know if you don't carry chorused you're no response to really. everyone in my life that i care about their goal but when that happened i came askin well. i was sad national champion in track and field and also i was able to go and qualify for the olympic games. you know nine hundred eighty eight i started to experiment with other drugs i had lost all the financial means that i. was really on the street.

2:47 pm
a car crash i gave birth to my little niece and i think she's my reward for helping all those children who are selling dollars to buy life for the children. so we continue with our breaking news that russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to allow the deployment of military forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes let's have a listen now to the statement that was made having considered the appeal of the president of the russian federation and in the interests of the safety of the lives of citizens from the russian federation our compatriots in the personnel of the russian military contingent located in accordance with an international agreement on the territory of ukraine in the it's almost republic of crimea the federation
2:48 pm
council decides first to give consent to the president of the russian federation to use the armed forces of the russian federation on the territory of ukraine for normalization of the political situation in that country second this resolution shall take effect from the date of its adoption. well earlier president putin had asked the senators to support the move following an appeal for help from the authorities in crimea an autonomous republic in the south of the country that does not recognize the country's new leadership but the president's spokesman has however stressed that the approval to deploy troops does not necessarily mean it will be implemented the federation council has also called for russia to recall its ambassador from the u.s. because of president obama's aggressive rhetoric and i just can't has the details. moscow has not yet decided to withdraw the russian ambassador to the u.s. but the russian federation council or the russian senate and now we hear that also the lower house of the russian parliament that is the russian duma are preparing to
2:49 pm
address president putin with such a proposal but also they are suggesting to call the ambassador back for consultations and this does not mean as the lawmakers say the breakup of diplomatic relations now whether or not president putin will go through with this is not is not clear at the moment there has been no u.s. reaction to this specific news about the possibility of his role of the russian ambassador in the white house has steered tensions on friday when president obama said russia would pay if it interfered in ukraine take a listen we are now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the russian federation inside of ukraine the united states will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in ukraine president obama had earlier said if russia does intervene militarily he would reconsider his trip to russia in june for the g eight summit
2:50 pm
this is clearly a new low in u.s. russia relations that it survived many storms in the past what this one will bring is still in the fall we know the u.n. security council is meeting this saturday to discuss the situation in ukraine what's happening kiev with the on takeover of power does not easily fit into the framework of international law in fact from a legal standpoint it was a power grab of course then people make some motions take sides and call it different names but where as long as there is no elected power in ukraine it's a volatile situation where people who do not agree with the takeover of power that took place in kiev feel left out of the political process so a lot for the u.n. security council to discuss the u.s. is expected to use the u.n. charter's territorial integrity principle to press moscow not to into being. well the crimean authorities were asking russia for help the leader of ukraine is far right group the right sector reached out to the chechen terrorists of urging him to support ukraine and step up the fight against russia model of is the is the most
2:51 pm
leader of the chechen extremist movement and an international terrorist russia's equivalent of the zama bin laden is responsible for the deadly terrorist attacks across russia that have taken the lives of dozens of civilians including bombings on the moscow metro and international airport because also encourage the separatist movement in chechnya by declaring it an islamic state is currently wanted in russia on charges of kidnapping murder and treason international relations expert mark sloboda told me earlier this appeal is a clear threat to russian national security. this is an international jihad a movement whose stated game goal is to create an islamic caliphate not just an entrenched year but across all of southern russia where there is a muslim population and this is an international effort he has been had troops islamic jihadists fighting in syria are fighting in afghanistan so this is an
2:52 pm
international jihad its threat not simply a national separatist movement as it might perhaps have been some time in the ninety's. it's really no surprise that these. right sector. extreme western ukrainian alter nationalists have made this appeal to mars they have discussed this online before in fact during the chechen wars in the one nine hundred ninety s. several of their leaders who are now. in control of kiev openly fought with the chechens against the russians and quite loudly boast about how many russian tanks or how many troops they killed so this is actually an. alliance of devils if you will that we have seen before and so it's really no surprise that in this situation that dmitri euro show again who is not only the
2:53 pm
right sector leader and in control of the paramilitaries that are basically in control of the streets of kiev at this moment but now he has yes been given a position on the. security and defense council as has the deputy within this regime and russia can only regard this as a national security threat representatives of the new ukrainian government are also threatening to quite literally go nuclear a deputy from these forbode a party warns that kiev could go back on its own constitution and restock its nuclear arsenals within six months and started reports. double standards going to war washington suffer sleepless nights and paranoia when it comes to the nuclear capabilities of countries like iran around nuclear program around stokely or program iran's nuclear program but the us turns a blind eye when it comes to provocative statements coming out of key have one member of the ukrainian parliament's ultranationalists cobbled up party warns that
2:54 pm
a fresh a dozen tread carefully it will be dealing with a nuclear power that's the rhetoric despite ukraine signing up to the international nuclear nonproliferation treaty of one thousand nine hundred four there is a double standard when it comes to the way that the united states deals with supposedly nuclear threat from iran which let's not forget there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that iran intends to develop nuclear weapons for for aggressive military purposes unlike iran the warning from the ukrainian lawmaker includes an actual deadline of just a few months this in a conflict torn country where even the most pessimistic predictions ended up becoming a reality but none of that seems to disturb the us the money that we can't use to be the poor in the hungry in the united states and in europe that money is going to support nazis in ukraine with nuclear ambitions who are looking to destabilize the region and whose sole goal is the destruction of russia is yet another example of
2:55 pm
hypocrisy flying high from a country that touts itself as the world's leading democracy and cannot r.t. new york. political and economic analysts mawson see from the globalist news website says democratic leaders shouldn't make nuclear threats these threats are probably extreme and irresponsible bluff but it's very alarming to hear them being made in the first place a new government which has now emerged didn't keep. other figures like the opposition statement needs to act in their response a bold manner to earn the deserved respect and trust and cooperation of the international community that comment is disastrously card to productive and should be seen as such that brings up today for the moment just on ukraine's time on in just a few minutes from now this is all to international. child

continue with our breaking news now russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to allow the deployment of military forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes earlier president putin had asked the senators to support the move following an appeal for help from the authorities in crimea which is an autonomous republic in the south of ukraine that doesn't recognize the country's new leadership in kiev the present spokesman has however stressed that the approval does not necessarily mean it will be implemented well the federation council also wants russia's ambassador to the u.s. recalled over president obama's aggressive rhetoric going to can has the details on that moscow has not yet decided to withdraw the russian ambassador to the u.s. but the russian federation council or the russian senate and now we hear that also the lower house of the russian parliament that is the russian duma are preparing to address president putting with such a proposal but also they're suggesting to call the ambassador back for
3:19 pm
consultations and this does not mean as the lawmakers say the breakup of diplomatic relations now whether or not president putin will go through with this is not is not clear at the moment there has been no u.s. reaction to this specific news about the possibility of that role of the russian ambassador in the white house to steer attentions on friday when president obama said russia would pay if it interfered in ukraine we are now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the russian federation inside of ukraine the united states will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in ukraine. president obama had earlier said if russia does intervene militarily he would reconsider his trip to russia in june for the g eight summit this is clearly a new low in the west russian relations that survived many storms in the past but
3:20 pm
this one will bring is still in the far we know the u.n. security council is meeting this saturday to discuss the situation in ukraine what's happening kiev with the armed takeover of power does not usually fit into the framework of international law in fact from a legal standpoint it was a power grab of course then people mix emotions take sides and call it different names but for as long as there is no elected power in ukraine it's a volatile situation where people who do not agree with the takeover of power that took place in kiev feel left out of the political process so a lot for the un security council to discuss the u.s. is expected to use the u.n. charters territorial integrity principle to press moscow not to intervene while the crimean authorities were asking moscow for help the leader of ukraine's far right group the right sector reached out to the chechen terrorists daku of they urged him to support ukraine and step up the fight against russia but good model is the islamist leader of the church an extremist movement and an international terrorist
3:21 pm
russia's equivalent of islam a bin laden is responsible for deadly terrorist attacks across russia that have taken the lives of dozens of civilians including bombings on the moscow metro and adama did have international airport doctors also encourage the separatist movement in chechnya by declaring it in the islamic state is currently wanted in russia on charges of kidnapping murder and treason. or russia's foreign ministry responded to the appeal to the chechen militant by pointing out that many of the ukrainian groups backed by the west are in fact radicals or sloboda from moscow state university told me earlier that this is a clear threat to russia's national security. this is an international jihad a movement whose stated game goal is to create an islamic caliphate not just in in chechnya but across all of southern russia where there is a muslim population and this is an international effort he has been had troops his
3:22 pm
islamic jihad us fighting in syria fighting in afghanistan so this is an international jihad is threat not simply a national separatist movement as it might perhaps have been some time in the ninety's. it's really no surprise that these. right sector. extreme western ukrainian alter nationalists have made this appeal to mars they have discussed this online before in fact during the chechen wars in the one nine hundred ninety s. several of their leaders who are now. in control of kiev openly fought with the chechens against the russians and quite loudly boast about how many russian tanks or how many troops they killed so this is actually an. alliance of devils if you will that we have seen before and so it's really no
3:23 pm
surprise that in this situation that dmitri euro show again who is not only the right sector leader and in control of the paramilitaries that are basically in control of the streets of kiev at this moment but now he has yes been given a position on the. security and defense council as the deputy within this regime and russia can only regard this as a national security threat where we're getting reports of thousands of ukrainian seeking to flee the country applying for asylum in russia and in medina coach never told me why so my feeling a sense of panic now. people in ukraine are very war of course their worry is as fear is growing in ukraine as there is absolutely no clarity of what is happening in the country was going to happen in the nearest future and now many people in ukraine mostly in south and eastern parts are not at all accepting the new
3:24 pm
leadership as legitimate and they are feeling very insecure because of that with their right to weighing hard liners just putting themselves at the court of the up evil and seeking to control the new government mania right now rushing to banks trying to withdraw cash from their bank accounts from a.t.m. and that's on top of that that led to the national bank of ukraine introduced a temporary laments russia's migration service just said that the number of asylum applications received from ukraine has increased significantly giving numbers such as one hundred thousand asylum applications have been received within the past two weeks alarming for increase indeed and these figures mean even increase in the nearest future as the situation just ask the latest getting out of control well ukraine's now but it's in on the verge of default the country's finance ministry claims bankruptcy is looming it's estimated more than thirty five billion dollars
3:25 pm
in aid will be needed by the end of twenty fifteen meanwhile its foreign debt has climbed to around one hundred billion that's nearly eighty percent of ukraine's gross domestic product of the country being torn apart by those defying and supporting the new leadership the economic situation is only getting worse well let's have a quick reminder now of our breaking news russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to approve the use of military forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes president putin had also sentences to support the move this comes as protests against the interim government continue to multiply in cities across ukraine and the east of the country in didn't it six. reportedly seizing the regional administration building activists are now demanding a referendum on the future of the region on the heart of demonstrators broke through cordon set up by interim government supporters and captured the government building and i'll be back with more details on this ongoing situation in ukraine in just over thirty minutes from now.

judy cox a utah mother out of spite but an entire line of t. shirts at a popular chain store at her local mall the reason that she bought them was because she feels that the images of nearly naked women on them violate her local towns decency code she wants to make it clear though that she feels the store has the right to sell this type of shirt just not displayed in an exterior window ultimately her plan is to return the shirts on day fifty nine of the store's sixty limit let's hope for her sake they don't have a no return policy i bring this up because this is a great example of a nonviolent form of protest that actually works it caused a scandal and more importantly it will make the company lose a few dollars technically the girls on the shirts are even fully exposed believe me i checked thoroughly and i would even call them r. rated the local communities have the right to be more conservative than the rest of the nation if they want to be and it's good that judy cox actually did something

3:31 pm
are many times are willing to take a chance of rolling a shower to get their money to get some more crack it's a different addition. there's always been efforts to get rid of skid row in their war and for people who are unable to live in the world and they would give them a try to move through again and again but he just moved into a different area when big money developers began to revitalize downtown the flop houses got new neighbors and penned houses and high end lofts. there are not many places where the gap between rich and poor is a striking as it is here. literally there is just a block or two separating those two things and i cruising where there's muscles operating those two thirds of those trucks for to really get over to it i'm scared this is the new improved nice filter back here were to drop it people didn't come down to see into downtown just well the heroin addicts leo and of all this is dirt

3:34 pm
down on the sidewalk you know and trying to close your eyes and next to go to sleep when you're outdoors those are the things as an addict that most people don't really talk about so the first time i came down to skid row i was pretty much our five. i was amazed at the number of english were down here i was amazed at where some of the people had come from. the midnight mission first opened its doors and nine hundred fourteen cents and thousands have passed through its drug and alcohol treatment program. two hundred forty four. i'm in occupy this space here at the mission and we're going to go and see where i got my humble beginnings in recovery this is the residence when you first come into the midnight mission everyone that comes in has to come through this dormitory first. so this was my big c three up
3:35 pm
and you can see this in the this is just the way it was when i when i got here i did a lot of soul searching this bit right here i had to make up my mind whether or not i was going to try to stay sober what the program was for me what i was really doing here you know at forty one years old what are you going to do i mean at that point for me it was either you go forward you know with the other lifestyle or you try to pull back and do something different. any time you can fall from grace or you fall from from lofty heights if you want to use that word. it's humbling. the area has always attracted outsiders. some stay for a. while others never. come albert olsen but everybody calls me bam bam i'm

3:38 pm
to date are the homeless mentally ill obviously many of them are also involved with addiction and sometimes you can't figure out which came first and that doesn't even matter the fact is they've got melanoma a serious mental illness because the institutions don't exist anymore breaking close down all of those places and they took all the mental people and they gave it to society and then where do we go you either get committed and get locked in and smoke a cigarette three times a day and when they tell you or you sit on the street you become homeless and you can at least have your own life to some point. in many ways it's an open assignment . for the mentally ill we don't have closed asylums anymore except for our jails in our prisons l.a. county twin towers jail is the largest mental institution in the united states.
3:39 pm
because we no longer hospital wards are mentally ill so we criminalize because of their behavior on the streets people were really questioning me like how can you open a place just for people who are crazy isn't that really stigmatized. and i said no i think we're going to be just the most righteous best. center we're going to have the best food we're going to feel like a family we're going to just make it a place people want to come to. so that people had a place to stay at night. by like two thousand and two we had one hundred employees half of them were members we also set up our own permanent housing i came time to take with some of the most beautiful people. that one could ever you know really.
