10:00 am
crimea no longer under kiev's command the local authorities claim oh it's ukrainian troops stationed on the peninsula and either points or joined local defense birds. resistance to rules from. the south east of ukraine with protests and doesn't sit as against the far right national lead taking up power up to the curb. also this week saw the news diplomatic swordplay between venezuela and the united states as deadly clashes in caracas and beyond seen washington accused of fueling the trouble . under controversial christian group patrols the streets of london and claiming it will stick around aggressively islamification that's local community leaders feel. really just.
10:01 am
the latest news on the week's top stories you're watching the week here on our seem to national with me here in ash and welcome to the problem ukraine's southern republic of crimea is becoming even more disconnected from the new national authorities in kiev the latest reports such as the ukrainian troops stationed on the but in either quitting on my ass or putting themselves under the sole command of crimea as leaders that's as a wave of protests against kiev is spreading across the southeast of the country and she's more if an ocean is in the crimea capital and alex a dash of sky is in the city of haifa for us right now. well the main mass a chat to hear from crimea is a free shows and now syria have to interrupt myself because the reason they call
10:02 am
change of. obviously pro russian. demonstrators. and you can see and you can understand what is the masses at best sending now to this is the mood here on the financial are while the entire country is divided into those who are supposed to the country's new authorities and those who don't trick nies them as legitimate power here in the crimea the mood is why do you not him as people. people support russia and russia's recent decisions and they don't to want to be with kiev's new masters and talking about security and safety here in the region and a very important question what will be going on with the ukrainian military stationed here on the peninsula crimea as officials are saying that they're either leaving their posts and the military forces and leaving their arsenals or and as we
10:03 am
understand this is in the majority of the cases they're siding with primaries authorities this is what crimea as prime minister has to say about that. and that is the feeling is all of the patriotic soldiers cooperate with us the vast majority of military units and law enforcement agencies have sided with the people and the crimean autonomy will warn all of the hold heads who want to resist using firearms that they will be dealt with according to the law the main message that we hear from crime is officials is that the situation is under their control and there is no any reason for any planet and they say that the security is now provided mostly by so-called self defense schools made up of locals who are working in coordination with police we see these people here. and there they don't weigh any specific uniforms they're just patrolling the streets of major cities here in the crimea not necessarily strategical governmental buildings but just ordinary streets day and
10:04 am
night we're also hearing reports that two vessels of ukraine's black sea fleet left earlier today that pull to of sevastopol which is just one hundred hollanders away from where we are now but late to they returned because of some damages it's very complicated situation here in the country and of course it's not easy to say exactly what happened with these vessels so we have to wait to see what will be going on as now tent. is and the city of haifa called in the east of the country right now so alex say how noticeable is the anti gallon sentiment where you are right now and how is it being expressed well certainly the division in the country which maria was talking about was very easily tangible here on saturday when the pro russian activists and those who are not supporting the new with authorities in kiev a collapsed with the so-called activists of the year in my down who are securing
10:05 am
the local administration they managed to get inside the administration and put a russian flag on top of it there have been reports of tear gas used and scores of injured the official line here and how to prove that more than one hundred people were brought to hospitals with different sorts of injuries rocks were flying sticks and bateman's were used against each other so it was pretty pretty violent here pretty much the same story has been happening well maybe not as violent as in her to go but along the same line what's happening in many other cities in the east of ukraine in the city of donetsk and even to throw school grounds and many other cities in then you have for instance this is also one of the largest cities the industrial center of ukraine that the people of voted not to trust the authorities in kiev and they even called on a referendum to be held in the nearest future to decide the future of the whole region right now it's pretty much quo. but i just listened to one of the activists of the year my down talking in key of from the stage that ukrainian flags must be reinstated on all governmental buildings and all local administration buildings in
10:06 am
the east of the country where this all might go nobody knows it's pretty much a powder keg and we certainly don't know what to expect in the nearest future here in the east of the country and the organizer when anti-government rally in the southeast and the transco also driving the. thousand people come together in your patrols we shall never take their way is it going to develop our cultural differences in this country generally imply that we need protection and this is right and the police all around the country they get them they kill them and the police now is just. has just lost its moral and the only way for us is to blame protection and that we have gathered today all around the eastern ukraine number numers. these groups and these are
10:07 am
mr liberals can go to the election but first we need to have the or there is the one before the election we need to have the or there is the one. also thousands have marched through central moscow in a show of support for ukrainians students veterans and politicians gathered to call for an end to the spread of extremism and fascism across ukraine and a return to national unity they also voiced their support for those in crimea with russian passports who are unwilling to leave their homes despite the potential threat to their lives. a peaceful solution to the crisis. russia did agree the potential deployment of its military to keep the peace and quiet me is following a plea from local authorities after key government buildings were toxic mold that set with di. the situation is very serious and even dangerous in the autonomous republic of crimea more than half of its population is ethnic russians and they're
10:08 am
forced to ward off attacks from radical groups that came to power in kiev as a result of last week's coup now the russian president vladimir putin has addressed the parliament asking for the support of potential military help let's now listen to what he's had to say because of the extraordinary situation ukraine which represents a threat to the lives of russian citizens our compatriots in 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 the federation council unanimously approved the move it was specifically reiterated by both the senators and the presidential spokesman that the deployment was optional depending on the severity of the threat to the russian nationals living in the crimea and the south east territories of
10:09 am
ukraine it simply gives the russian president the right to react promptly in case of infiltration of radical groups into those territories if there are attacks of nationalistic radicals on ethnic russians or if assaults continue similar to the ones that place on the first of march in the crimea as capital simferopol. turn the sound of why crimea refuses to recognize the new regime in kiev and why it has appealed to russia for help about how website r.t. dot com you'll find the historical background to how the an insular was separated from russia and why the majority of locals a want a back end so do go to parts of for and house. members from the disbanded the ukrainian riot police unit. better could have started to receive a russian passport said the russian consulate in crimea earlier this week the
10:10 am
russian offered citizenship and career opportunities to x. officers sixteen back with servicemen were killed during weeks of on to government protests and ukraine's capital the opposition accuse the riot police of abusing and killing protesters during the unrest in kiev but in other parts of the country including crimea they have been met by doing the rounds. talk of russia sending troops has led to a sharp international response was president obama said moscow was breaching international law and couldn't and could end up isolated canada joined in by condemning putin's military intervention but as of the plans of britain and france have decided to suspend preparations for the g eight summit in sochi the e.u.'s foreign policy chief away day in deploring russia's potential use of force and sweden's prime minister went even further saying moscow's masterminding a pro russian puppet said his state in crimea and his british colleagues there's no
10:11 am
excuse for outside of military intervention all this despite moscow still not haven't decided whether to send troops go now to check our reports. would russia brings to the u.n. is the message that those who through force took power in kiev should not count on using force against people in crimea and other parts of ukraine that have no say in the power grab my dog the russian envoy to the un called on kiev and those who have influence on key of to bring the situation in the country on a quote political constitutional track or urges everyone to go back to the agreement signed in february between the ukrainian government and some of the opposition leaders that would lead to elections that would lead to a unity government which would be inclusive and it would not trouble in the interests of a big part of ukraine that had no say in the power grab it bind on in the meantime russia calls for decision makers in kiev and in the west to rein in the as the investor said the red of course in ukraine who have very interruption sentiments
10:12 am
and who present danger to the russian speaking population in ukraine russia says if the russian speaking population in ukraine is in danger it will take measures to protect them under international law earlier the russian parliament suggested that the russian president recall the embassador to the u.s. consul patience we don't know whether or not the russian president will actually do that and russian lawmakers say this proposal was in reaction to president obama say russia would pay if it intervened in ukraine and respond to world affairs historian professor mark almond from oxford university he believes western politicians are starting to understand the source that has been unleashed in ukraine thanks to this could. but morally the western media and the western governments that have been very enthusiastic about what they call people who had turned a blind eye to the paramilitary and neo nazi elements on the streets of kiev have
10:13 am
begun to back away now the west and sponsors are rather worried suddenly we begin to see criticism of the new regime in kiev so pollution of russian language rights of its rescinding of the ban on neo nazi symbols and so on suddenly the west begins to say perhaps we have and wish to kill whoever it is in fact maybe destabilizing they've realized in fact that the cooler that overthrew the cove it has in fact not in the end of the drama but only the first fact but of course it's sign i think of it that childish almost unbelievably incompetent attitude on the part of the nato countries that they facilitated this crisis without thinking through what happened that you are unleashing forces of nationalism of fear that can become uncontrollable. what the crimean authorities were asking moscow for how the leader of ukrainian nationalist group right sector has reacted rather reached out for help
10:14 am
to one of the world's most notorious terrorists on a social network he asks maher of to step up attacks against russia dr marfin believes old the chechen islamist movement and international terror is basically russia's osama bin laden he was the mastermind of several deadly attacks on civilians in russia including the bombings of moscow's demanded of an airport and metro system which is in the lives of hundreds of people from our wants to create an islamic state in southern russia ruled by sharia law. russia's foreign minister responded to that appeal to the chechen militant by pointing out their radical nature of many of those now in power in ukraine the leader of the ukrainian nationalist plain page where the message was posted one been hacked and earlier we spoke to journalist neil clark who says that such an appeal would be in line with the anti russian attitude of right wing groups in ukraine we think back to the one nine hundred ninety s. you know we had
10:15 am
a lot of ukrainian hardcore neo nazis traveling out to check here to fight in the so-called war for separatism for russia so there's always been this link for the last twenty years or so between the most sort of hard right extremist factions in ukraine and the islamist cause in chechnya the radical islamist cause so this is an alliance that goes back quite a long way really and of course there's a third trying to this alliance which is the neo conservatives in the west what unites the neo conservatives in the west with ukrainian neo nazis and radical islamists in chechnya is of course their hatred for russia they will do anything however extreme to get at russia and so i think this ukrainian crisis is sort of remind because once again the sort of axis of evil that's ranged against russia that combines neo conservatives in washington and in britain and in france and elsewhere. in ukraine and radical islamists in chechnya this really is a kind of alliance that is targeting russia and this is just a reminder really at the same time the right sector denies appealing to march saying its website was hanks' isn't some kind of damage control now that. oh
10:16 am
absolutely i think that this is becoming rather embarrassing for the west really because the fact is that they use the far right to get their people in power in here and now these statements are coming out now the extremism is there for everybody to see they are in complete denial and i think that the right sector is trying to sort of. back down from this now but it's all there i mean we know that they've got to they've had links rejection radicals we know that they are radical far right you know nazi group. and now they're trying to sort of say they wasn't there and the web site was hacked it doesn't wash i'm afraid i think we know this extremism is there it's there for everybody to see and this anti russian obsession from the western elite is costing this all gear it's very dangerous it could provoke who knows war perhaps until the west elites drop this and drop this anti russian obsession this neo conservative influenced obsession with russia i think even eyes in russia then i'm afraid we're only going to get more chaos in the next
10:17 am
few weeks or months. and apparently it's not just the notorious chechen terrorists but the nationalists in ukraine have appealed for help to a russian border guards have detained an activist who took part in riots in the ukrainian capital and he claims there were many foreigners fighting in kiev street we don't know any of those that. there were many foreigners would mind i can even give you a rough numbers there were about sixty americans who were still were there also germans thirty to forty of them poles and turks too although i'm not sure how many but the americans were by far the most active. they were also misfits from all over ukraine people without jobs without education they came because they knew there was an icky you can do anything and no one can stop you there were drugs alcohol violence it attracted them or americans will return after a break with more news for you including a look at the unfolding turn wall in. the
10:18 am
wheel caught on the roadside with a car skidded at breakneck speed and fell into a ditch and i was thrown out of the car she was like a broken doll it wasn't a single hole piece left i thought if i lived and had a chance to start my life from scratch that i would start making dollars to help children it. could go on right after he was born the baby was all in casts. his legs are getting bigger and the ortho says it too small so we have to order new ones said lorna has raised money for us she helps us to get a leg braces five years after my potentially fatal injuries in a car crash i gave birth to my little miss a i think she's my reward for helping all those children who are selling the dogs to buy life for the children.
10:19 am
science technology innovation all these developments around russia we've got the future covered. you're watching the work here and i'll say international welcome back. the deadly protests in venezuela which have left eighteen people dead since last month will be the subject of talks between the yuan the secretary general and the country's representatives. have been rallying over the state economic woes and a drastic surge and crying they also keys president doer of pressuring political rivals. three american diplomats and blamed washington for stoking the rest of the u.s. state department responded in kind gregory will from venezuela analysis dot com told
10:20 am
us the u.s. doesn't actually mind the violence the united states has imposed and strives for a very long time and so conservative governmental colombia both governments know various ways whether it is working paramilitaries going to going to split up from colombia or also the us government supporting opposition groups with funding and with this public statements that for example kerry gave secretary of state kerry which essentially gave you a position to sharpen your arm because he made it there are protests even though it's quite clear that most of the protests that are out there are being violent and there are so you can come protections at least. on those more analysis on the crisis in venezuela as well as some striking images from the recent violent rise on our website and also that international pressure wasn't the only reason that we
10:21 am
think that policy is spiritual. and a shoes might be a one of the key functions to iran is dramatically reducing its atomic bomb. and also covering the head for religious reasons by muslim women has caused much controversy in some european countries but there's no problem with doing it on a football pitch. the rise in hate crime. against muslims as proving a major challenge for britain muslim patrols displays of islamic extremism and the daily lives decapitation of a soldier in london have all fuelled violence sentiment and now a vigilante christian group is taking justice into its own hands. i want to be so hard for the big girls given the christian prolific there's any patrol in town also in the hills of the small but make sure it's muslim patrols any political group calling themselves britain first have responded by filming what they've dubbed
10:22 am
christie and patrols and this patrol comes complete with armored vehicles on the bulletproof the whole thing is all of the t. joins the list they took to the streets in east london where we had info. why the area because that's where drugs should be happening it's ok for you to make fun of the group has been described as far right many of the members of pullman b.m.p. or e.t.l. that they really get to differentiate themselves from these groups and insist they don't want to be associated with violence tactics such as baiting when members stand with empty beer cans to try and lure out the muslim patrols have proven controversial and some members of the group have already placed the rest we know here during the. problems for anyone to be.
10:23 am
carrying out they sure have drug dealing to confront them do you think the christian patrols intimidating. despite having a poorly condemned the muslim patrols at the time the east london mosque has been singled out by the christian patrol for criticism the mosques say they feel caught in the middle and are worried the patrol could inflame fragile community relations our community certainly feels threatened by. what the public needs to understand is that none of these groups represent the mainstream community or wider society out on london streets and well there's not much support to be found here either. pretty close to the border with you shouldn't have been from a love. story. to be anything do you think it's all going to be completely school here will you think there are going to be moments
10:24 am
where i think there's a potential for trouble there always will be there's nothing we can do to avoid that you could not patrol yeah and then just leave these members of the public to be a rough spot of your patrols. but this sure patrols have been operating in the at the front line but that's not what we've been told since a number of arrests last year the muslim patrols have gone to ground despite the christian patrol activity muslim patrols so far not taken the bait so. the london. and nothing to the news this hour until government protests in the turkish capital on camera will lead to by police using tear gas of into town and demonstrators have the security forces with strong and bold fire bombs and while chanting the one they see the turkish prime minister is accused of massive corruption recordings emerged purporting to him to behave or his son discussing how

to stop money the premier denounced the tapes ask. police have increased security in western china after knife welding attackers massacred up to thirty three people at her railway station over one hundred sixty all were injured as a gang iran's really has stopped commuters waiting for their train connections security forces shot dead for the tankers and captured one suspects the incident has been branded a terrorist act carried out by ethnic separatists. the bombs going off in a busy market in nigeria killing at least ten people including children the number of casualties is expected to rise as dozens of people remain trapped under the rubble no one's admitted time but suspicion has fallen on the extremist the home group which has long terrorized the country in its attempts to introduce sharia law . down and out drunks living the high life in the city of
10:26 am
angels our report in just a couple of minutes. minnesota vikings football player jared allen like many pro athlete stereotypes is actually doing something for society with this and f.l. fame and fortune he is providing homes for turning wounded u.s. veterans good job mr allen generally for some reason wealthy people don't do much to help other people besides giving money to charity to get some sort of tax break kickback the thing they don't realize that helping other people out is actually in the best interest of rich guys too if they would ever just stop to think about it a little more so mega wealthy that you could live in total isolation you're going to have to deal with the rest of the people in your country and the better off that average guy is the less likely he's going to need to steal from you to get by ellen's work is fantastic because it gets veterans out of
10:27 am
a desperate situation returning home wounded trying to struggle to find work in a bad economy and treat their wounds in a massively over expensive medical system here ellis point is a drop in the bucket for the over twenty million american servicemen who have come back home but it shows that a wounded veteran with a place to live as a much better chance at a good life and the fewer vets there are living under a bridge the better society will be but that's just my opinion. this is. going to be. we can spill over it seems to be running out of steam as well as coal gas water to treat. the supply crisis like this because we america obama is wise for such reasons applied is futuristic. so next light like to be precise.
10:28 am
skid row has a neighborhood of fifty plaques which does not appear on any map of los angeles. you.
10:29 am
know move through. this new room basically. and there's still. this is good in big question things here that you've been experiencing shit that there is just no way i mean there's no movie there's no book there's this is a real life experience i see people get beat up every night people get robbed us of people to step us and i've seen people get hit by a car you don't pay b.o.'s you don't know if you don't pay the car noticed your new responsibilities are not here because where homeless just less of a home baby my reality was that i was there you know skid row is the last house on the block at g.o.p. with just in my neighborhood you know i. basically almost slept on every street
10:30 am
down here at one time or another i think i would never ever live in a way else you know skid row is my home. as many as eleven thousand men and women make their home in l.a. scattered around. about two thirds struggled with mental illness trying to texan or both but it wasn't always this way. i came to skid row it was more like skid row's we identify old drunks old drunks on the street. it used to make terrible he's old chris incarnation of drunks. and when it was really safe because they were hungry and christian now we have young strong crack addicts who are many times are willing to take a chance at rolling stone 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 it was
10:31 am
a war and for people who are unable to live in the world and they were given the tried to move through again and again but 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'm cruising where there's nothing separating those two things chuck for julian over. skid row this is a newer through my stilts. back here would have been robbed if people didn't come down to see into downtown to swell the air when it's leo and of all this is dirt fields and burn barrels it and they will cut your throat down to your people become past main street you doing dishes call the pit spec the down. people are told
10:32 am
a different sort of a whole generation. its good rosenau just seem potential real estate story for groundstrokes fear that people are interested in not much interest on the people who are on the ground everyone who lands on skid row has a story to to. well about how they got there for many it's the last stop after losing everything for sun to follow suspension later matic my life you know prior to coming to skate row was. in some ways like most people in other ways it was a little bit different you know i was born in compton grew up there with five brothers and sisters lost my dad when i was three my mom when i was fourteen at that point i moved out to california and i was an athlete in high school and decent student and started smoking weed you know in high school at the age of fourteen after my mom passed away yet and still you know i was good enough athletically to
10:33 am
earn a full scholarship to university iowa state university where i was a national champion in track and field and also i was able to go and qualify for the olympic games in eighty four where i actually competed in one of so medal so eighteen years old you know obviously going into the olympics a year out of high school was very exciting i had a lot of emotion going on. you know one nine hundred eighty eight i started to experiment with other drugs that ended up you know getting involved with cocaine and i freebasing cocaine and that was the beginning of a twenty year journey for me as an addict i had lost everything i had lost my shoe contract i had lost my house i lost all the financial means that i head was really on the street. sleeping on the street for the first time and actually laying 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
10:34 am
talk about so the first time i came down to skid row i was pretty much our five. i was amazed at the numbers 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 men 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 bed c three up and you can see this in the this is just the way it was when i when i got here i
10:35 am
did a lot of soul searching in this period 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 what the other lifestyle or you try to pull back and do something different. any time you you 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. three. some stay for a. while others never. a melbourne olson but everybody calls me bam bam i'm a punky ex new yorker my story starts way back when i was a kid unfortunately. nursery school would be my teacher would share i was thrown
10:36 am
out of every school ever want to have been seeing elucidating and hearing voices i was since i was a kid i got i'm one of those cases where on fire i pull schizoaffective i have an anti-social personality disorder or p.t.s.d. i have intimate rage just sort of a major nightmare the sort of. i also have a gender identity disorder where i'm taking hormones for a transgender issue for sexual reassignment to get my her way down the color of their good spot to some of the best era when it's. been cracked up bad it we'd mans out a next block. hollowing. two years ago this only to be two years for me so i spent a good two years down. the general they got over do it at their commit suicide next time. so nasty horrible and everything's all over the place it makes you you know makes you want to do something with your life size doing this because this is really rough to do this and i went to the service i got from out of the service for
10:37 am
bad conduct one thing is really stinks the fact doesn't rain here it doesn't wash the urine in the pool the way it's a smell just gets worse and worse i beat up my mother and my sisters and i took my kid and by losing my kid and everything else i really really really was smart and i was where i first became homeless because i couldn't rationally. deal with where my life had gone i've been electrician felicia's are always worst. back in the mid seventy's through the mid eighty's we didn't call them homeless back then we were emptying our mental hospitals by basically saying now we have them instead of help you and you can also get on disability so go forth and take care of yourself the predominant population on the row at that time and continues to date are the homeless mentally ill obviously many of them are also involved with
10:38 am
addiction and and sometimes you can't figure out which came first and that doesn't even matter the fact is they've got melanoma serious mental illness because the institutions don't exist anymore breaking close down all of those places and they took all the mental people in and they gave it to society and then. we 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 asylum 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. because we no longer hospital wards are mentally ill so we criminalize them because of their behavior on the streets people were really questioning me like how can you
10:39 am
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 drop in 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. that's how we. so that people had a place to stay at night. by like two thousand and two we had a hundred employees half of them were members we also set up our own permanent housing i came in contact with some of the most beautiful people that one could ever know mere me go. a family. you know we cook together we eat together we play cards together we see

10:58 am
put it under. the same. pleasure to have you with us here on t.v. today i roll researcher. in two thousand and seven one of the first things released by wiki leaks was a secret video recording that actually looked like a video showing two americans actually collect not just opening fire on a dozen people in iraq 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 and experience him to speak that's only
10:59 am
disassociate. and by any actions activity we also have a sane person from certain kinds of maryland i absolutely am frightened of the potential games desensitize people we know they can because the military uses games. of war it is not simply put it is chilling and killing exacts a penalty of a killer. people for whom it is defined by the popular media don't get that. sense to.
11:00 am
crimea no longer on their kids come on the local authorities claim most ukrainian troops stationed on the peninsula about to quit joint local defense groups. resistance to rule from kiev is spreading across the southeast of ukraine with protests in a dozen cities against the far right nationalists taking up power off to the coup. and in this week's other news diplomatic. the play between venezuela and the united states is deadly clashes in caracas and beyond washington accused of fueling the trouble. bushell christian group patrols the streets of london claiming it wants to counter aggressive islamification but local community leaders fear it's actually stoking religious tensions.
11:01 am
with a look back at the past seven days top stories and the latest developments this is the weekly on international ukraine southern republic of crimea is becoming even more disconnected from the new national authorities in kiev the latest report suggests the ukrainian troops stationed on the peninsula rather quitting on mass or putting themselves under the sole command of crime is leaders and as a wave of protests against kiev are spreading across the southeast of the country. is in the crimean capital and that she had a chef skee is in the city of cockle for us. well the main massa chat to hear from crimea is a free shows and now syria have to interrupt myself because the reason they call change of. obviously pro russian. demonstrators.
11:02 am
and you can see and you can understand what is the masses that they're sending now to this is the mood here on the financial are while the entire country is divided into those who are supposed to the country's new authorities in those who don't trick nies them as legitimate power here in the crimea the mood is why do you nana mess people. people support russia and russia's recent decisions and they don't to want to be with kiev's new masters and talking about security and safety here in the region and a very important question what will be going on with the ukrainian military stationed here on the peninsula crimea as officials are saying that they're either leaving their posts and the military forces and leaving their arsenals or and as we understand this is in the majority of the cases they're siding with crimea is
11:03 am
a thought is this is what crimea as prime minister has to say about that. grand jury and that is the feeling they have all of the patriotic soldiers cooperate with the vast majority of military units and law enforcement agencies have sided with the people and the crimean autonomy will warn all of the hold heads who want to resist using firearms that they will be dealt with according to the law the main message that we hear from crime is officials is that the situation is under their control and there is no any reason for any panic and they say that the security is now provided mostly by so-called self defense squads made up of locals who are working in coordination with police we see these people here and. and there they don't weigh any specific uniforms they just patrolling the streets of major cities here in the crimea not necessarily strategical governmental buildings but just ordinary streets day and night we're also hearing reports that two vessels of
11:04 am
ukraine's black sea fleet left earlier today that pool to sevastopol which is just six hundred kilometers away from where we are now but late to they returned because of some damage is less now ten. and the city of haifa called in the east of the country right now so nick say how noticeable is the anti gallon sentiment where you are right now and how is it being expressed well certainly the division in the country which maria was talking about was very easily tangible here on saturday when the pro russian activists and those who are not supporting the new with authorities in kiev a collapsed with the so-called activists of the year in my down who were securing the local administration they managed to get inside the administration and put a russian flag on top of it there have been reports of tear gas used and scores of injured the official line here in haifa that more than one hundred people were brought to hospitals with different sorts of injuries rocks were flying sticks and
11:05 am
bateman's were used against each other so it was pretty pretty violent here pretty much the same story has been happening well maybe not as violent doesn't have to go but along the same line what's happening in many other cities in the east of ukraine in the city of donetsk and you would get off school grounds and many other cities in the next for instance this is also one of the largest cities the industrial center of ukraine the people of voted not to trust the authorities in kiev and they even called on a referendum to be held in the nearest future to decide the future of the whole region right now it's pretty much quiet but i've just listened to one of the activists of the euro my down talking in kiev from the stage that ukrainian flags must be reinstated on all governmental buildings and all local ministration buildings in the east of the country where this all might go nobody knows it's pretty much a powder keg and we certainly don't know what to expect in the nearest future here in the east of the country. well we asked the organizer of an anti-government rally
11:06 am
in the southeastern city of didn't. want he's driving the protests there. people come together in. never take their way they're going to develop our cultural differences in this country generally imply that we need protection and that's this. and the police all around the country they get them they killed them and now gas. has just lost its moral and the only way for our. action and we have gathered today around these from the gray number. of these groups these are liberals going to go to the election earth we need to have the very strong before the election we need to have their historic. thousands of march through central moscow in
11:07 am
a show of support for ukrainians students veterans and politicians gathered to call for an end to the spread of extremism fascism across ukraine and the return to national unity they also voiced their support for those in crimea with russian passports who are unwilling to leave their homes despite the potential threat to their lives activists urged a solution to the crisis. or russia agreed the potential deployment of its military to keep the peace in crimea following a plea from local authorities after key government buildings were attacked on this now with pushed over. situation is very serious and even dangerous and the autonomous republic of crimea more than half of its population is ethnic russians and the force to ward off attacks from radical groups that came to power in kiev as a result of last week's who now the russian president vladimir putin has addressed the parliament asking for the support of potential military help let's now listen
11:08 am
to what you have to say 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 as 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 the federation council unanimously approved the move it was specifically reiterated by both the senators and the presidential spokesman that the deployment was optional depending on the severity of the threat to the russian nationals living in the crimea and the south east territories of ukraine it simply gives the russian president the right to react promptly in case of infiltration of radical groups into those territories if there are attacks of nationalistic radicals on ethnic russians or air assaults continue similar to the
11:09 am
ones that took place on the first of march in the crimea as capital city. well to understand why crimea refuses to recognize the new regime in kiev and why it has appealed to russia for help going to our website you'll find the historical background to how the peninsula was separated from russia and why the majority of the population want to return. members from the disbanded ukraine riot police unit berg started receiving russian passports at the russian consulate in crimea earlier this week russia offered citizenship and career opportunities to ex officers sixteen both servicemen were killed during weeks of anti-government protests in ukraine's capital your position accused the riot police of abusing and killing protesters during the unrest in kiev but in other parts of the country including crimea they have been met by cheering crowds.
11:10 am
well talk of russia sending troops is there to a sharp international response president obama said moscow was breaching international law and could end up isolated kind of the joined in by condemning putin's military intervention both of them plus britain and france have decided to suspend preparations for the g eight summit which is due in sochi ease foreign policy chief weighed in the pouring russia's potential use of force and his british colleague says there is no excuse for outside military intervention all this despite moscow still not having decided whether to send troops in we're going to come has more. would rush or brings to the un is the message that those who through force took power in kiev should not count on using force against people in crimea and other parts of ukraine that have no say in the power grab at my down the russian envoy to the un called on kiev and those who have influence on key of to bring the situation in the country on a quote political constitutional track or urges everyone to go back to the
11:11 am
agreement signed in february between the ukrainian government and some of the opposition leaders that would lead to elections that would lead to a unity government to which would be inclusive and it would not trouble in the interest of a big part of ukraine that had no say in the power grab it bind on in the meantime russia calls for decision makers in kiev and in the west to rein in the as the investor said the radicals in ukraine who have very interruption sentiments and who present danger to the russian speaking population in ukraine russia says if the russian speaking population in ukraine is in danger it will take measures to protect them under international law earlier the russian parliament suggested that the russian president recall the bastard to the u.s. consul patience we don't know whether or not the russian president will actually do that but russian lawmakers say this proposal was in reaction to president obama say
11:12 am
russia would pay if it intervened in ukraine. well i'm now joined live by a commentator on russian affairs marcus papadopoulos who is there in the u.k. markets well there has been no intervention no yet no troops deployed in ukraine and yet very strong international reaction and not unexpected. well first things first talk of a military confrontation between the west and russia is extremely far fetched russia is not serbia russia is not iraq and russia is not libya russia is a nuclear military superpower so it can't be touched militarily by the west which undoubtedly be to the frustration and annoyance of many in washington but i'm not surprised by the west's response to what's been happening in the crimea over the last few days and i think it's fair to say that the west response amounts to hypocrisy and drivel since when does the united states government jenny genuinely
11:13 am
subscribe and defend to the can and defend the concepts of sovereignty and territorial integrity they're certainly not doing that at the moment in syria where they're backing militants who have taken over who crossings in the north and in the east of the country they certainly didn't do that on their tanks libya they certainly didn't do that when they invaded iraq they certainly didn't do that when they attacked serbia over kosovo and then later on recognize kosovo is in a unilateral declaration of independence and the united states certainly didn't do that in one thousand ninety one and ninety nine to two when it recognized the creation independence unilaterally and most of the independence unilaterally so i think it's very important for ordinary people across the across the world to realize the united states government nearly pays lip service to sovereignty and territorial integrity picks and chooses we've been hearing that many russians in
11:14 am
crimea fear for their lives. is sending in troops justified if it indeed did happen. there is a genuine fear among millions of ethnic russians in ukraine and millions of lashon speak in ukrainians in the country and that you and that fear is about the rise of neo nazis i'm in ukraine and we've also seen that in the baltic states of estonia and latvia and so the russian government has a right to ensure the ethnic russians and russian speaking ukrainians are protected and it's deplorable how we're seeing western journalists completely disregards genuine concerns of millions of people in ukraine and that comes down to ignorance these journalists do not understand who a lot of these people are engineers who are illegitimately illegitimately taken power all right i mean it's not just journalists but it seems that western is
11:15 am
supporting a government that does of course include many who are attached to right wing parties is a very extremist national element within that kiev government why is that being ignored by europe and indeed the us well because the those people in kiev who diligence and that lead to power i asked in the democratically elected president of ukraine would see any kurdish off a silly anti russian and western politicians and western journalists that turning a blind eye to open nationalist and he's seen lots of neo nazis who are now starting to take up positions in this illegitimate ukrainian government and many many of these western politicians and western journalists we've never heard of stepan bandera before they'd never heard of ukrainian insurgents army before they'd never heard of the organization for ukrainian nationalists you know when the russian government pins point one these three people as have been neo nazi
11:16 am
collaborators they're absolutely correct but all generally people listen to this interview around the. if they don't want to listen to the russian government if they don't want to listen to r.c. if they don't want to listen to me they should concepts you have a sham concept assignment theories and how censor and total. tell them exactly to stepan bandera was for example just very briefly is this going to escalate more where's it all heading it's been very fast moving in the last twenty four hours or so is an extremely fluid situation and it's extremely concerning what to resolve this what's needs to be done is this the clock needs to be turned back we need to go back to the agreements that were signed between president yannick herbage and the opposition parties under the auspices of the european union and that agreement stipulated that there would be early presidential elections in ukraine and that there would be a national coalition government that's the way we resolve this crisis that was the agreements that rest and yet
11:17 am
a code which signed that was the agreement that the opposition signed that was the agreement that the european union put their name to but now of course we see that the opposition ousted president yannick over it and let's remember what we seen in crimea today is because a democratically elected president president and a democratically elected government has been ousted let us not forget that marcus papadopoulos lives here not international thank you very much indeed for your thoughts well while the crimean authorities were asking moscow for help the leader of ukrainian nationalist group right sector reached out for help to one of the world's most notorious terrorists on a social network of to step up attacks against russia the amount of is the leader of the chechen islamist movement turned an international terrorist basically russia's zama bin laden he was the mastermind of several deadly attacks on civilians in russia including the bombings of moscow's domodedovo airport and the metro system which took the lives of hundreds of people now he wants to create an
11:18 am
islamic state in southern russia ruled by. original. russia's foreign ministry responded to the appeal to the church militant by pointing out the radical nature of many of those now in power in ukraine the leader of the ukrainian nationalists claimed his page where the message was posted had been hacked well earlier my colleague you know shop of one of us spoke to journalist neil clark who says that such an appeal would be in line with the russian attitude of right wing groups there in ukraine we think back to the one nine hundred ninety s. you know we had a lot of ukrainian hardcore neo nazis traveling out to chechnya to fight in the so-called war for separatism for russia so there's always been this link for the last twenty years or so between the most sort of hard right extremist factions in ukraine and the islamist cause in chechnya that the radical islamist cause so this is an alliance that goes back quite a long way really and of course there's a third tranche of this alliance which is the neo conservatives in the west what unites the neo conservatives in the west with ukrainian neo nazis and radical
11:19 am
islamists in chechnya is of course their hatred for russia they will do anything however extreme to get at russia and so i think this ukrainian crisis is sort of remind because once again this sort of axis of evil that's ranged against russia that combines neo conservatives in washington and in britain and in france and elsewhere with radical the old nazis in ukraine and radical islamists in chechnya this really is a kind of alliance that is targeting russia and this is just a reminder really at the same time the right sector denying that peeling to march saying its website was hanks' is that some kind of damage control now that. oh absolutely i think that this has become rather embarrassing for the west really because the fact is that they used the far right to get their people in power in here and now these sort of statements are coming out now the extremism is there for everybody to see they're in complete denial and i think that the right sector is trying to sort of. try to sort of back down from this now but it's all there i mean we know that they've got to that they've had links rejection radicals we know that
11:20 am
they are radical far right you know nazi group. and now they're trying to sort of say they wasn't there and the web site was hacked it doesn't wash i'm afraid i think we know this extremism is there it's there for everybody to see and this anti russian obsession for the western elites is costing us all dear it's very dangerous it could provoke who knows what perhaps until the west elites drop this and drop this anti russian obsession this neo conservative influenced obsession with russia and demonizing russia then i'm afraid we're only going to get more chaos in the next few weeks or months. breaking news now from ukraine we're learning that the commander of the country's naval forces says his allegiance lies with the crimean people it follows reports that ukrainian troops stationed in the peninsula were either quitting or joining local defense groups on massive flexibly putting the authorities in crimea fully in charge of the territory while the crimean government does not recognize those new authorities in kiev and will hold
11:21 am
a referendum on the region status in less than a month just repeat the command of the country's naval forces says his allegiance lies with the crimean people breaking news here coming to you from ukraine. but apparently it's not just the notorious chechen terrorists the nationalists in ukraine have appealed for help to russian border guards have detained an activist who took part in riots in the ukrainian capital and he claims there were many foreigners fighting on the streets. there were many foreigners at my down but i can even give you a rough numbers there were about sixty americans who were still there there were also germans thirty to forty of them poles and turks too although i'm not sure how many but the americans were by far the most active there were also misfits from all over ukraine people without jobs without education they came because they knew there was an icky you can do anything and no one can stop you there were drugs
11:22 am
alcohol violence it attracted them. when the other kid described by that activist is still recognizable in the new regime. takes a look at the dangerous tactics some radicals are using to assert their power. this was supposed to be a step towards a brighter future. but now it's heading in a different direction the goal which is the right and no one tells us when to bear arms and when not to and you didn't give them to us and you won't take them away you want to take my gun you want to take away my rifle you want to take away my knife you come here and take it the very same man who happens to be one of the leaders of the group that no one has the right sector could be seen supplementing his words with actions that she did yes. yes but at the. door just said yes so who is the employer genius. yet they get what he she rusher
11:23 am
is ukraine's internal enemy and while there exists a russian empire in any form it cannot be any real true national independence training in people right sector the militant arm of them i don has taken over two floors in kiev's central hotel artie's crew caught them breaking into not by the room you heard their attention don't create problems for yourself we know your inside their guitar with your arms in the air this is a simple check of identification we will get inside one way or the other don't be afraid and this in a tone of a lot of fun called sq the tree draped with hanging nooses and to sign that reads traitors of ukraine there is some specified who the traders are and today's ukraine many can fit the bill former officials police russians jews anyone associated with the former ruling party of the regions instilling fear is now a tactic for those who claimed to be peacefully demonstrating putting

deadly protests in venezuela which have left eighteen people dead since last month will be the subject of talks between the u.n. secretary general and the country's representatives activists there have been
11:26 am
running over the state's economic woes and a drastic surge in crime they also accuse present during pressuring political rivals with american diplomats and blamed washington for stoking the unrest and the u.s. state department responded in kind gregory will put from venezuela analysis dot com told us the u.s. doesn't actually. the united states was opposed to. charges for a very long time and so conservative government in colombia both governments have seen various ways whether it just by the. military is going to going to sway them from colombia or also the u.s. government supporting opposition groups with funding and with this public statements that for example kerry recently gave your state kerry which essentially gave you a position maybe a shot of your arm because he. made it there are protests even though it's quite
11:27 am
clear that most of the protests are out there are being violent and are seeking competitions with at least there's more analysis on the crisis in venezuela as well as some striking images from the recent violent rallies on our website but also the international pressure wasn't the only reason iran had a rethink over its nuclear policy its spiritual issues might be one of the key factors to iran is dramatically reducing its atomic program. plus covering the head for religious reasons by muslim women has caused much control see in some european countries but says there is no problem with doing it on a football pitch or on the. the rise in hate crimes against muslims is proving a major challenge for britain muslim patrols displays of islamic extremism and the they like the competition of a soldier in london the ball field fondant sentiment and now a vigilante christian group is taking justice into its own hands. i want it to be
11:28 am
so obvious rather than very close given the christian prolific there's any patrol in town also in the hills of the small but nato it's muslim patrols a new political group calling themselves britain first have responded by forming what they've dubbed christie and patrols and this patrol comes complete with vehicles. the whole thing is all of the t. joins the list they took to the streets in east london where we had info. why the area taking. drugs in behalf of the folks. from the group has been described as far right many of the members the former b.m.p. or e.t.l. that we get to differentiate themselves from these grapes and insist they don't want to be associated with violence but tactics such as baiting when members stand with empty beer cans to try and lure out the muslim patrols have proven
11:29 am
controversial and some members of the creep have already faced the rest we'll hear . problems for anyone to be. sure you're trying. to confront them do you think the christian patrols intimidating. despite having a poorly condemned the muslim patrols at the time the east london mosque has been singled out by the christian patrol for criticism the mosques say they feel caught in the middle and are worried the patrol could inflame fragile community relations our community certainly feels threatened by his antics just what the public needs to understand is that none of these groups represent the mainstream community or wider society out on london streets and well there's not much support to be found
11:30 am
here either. first. you shouldn't have a love. story. do you think it's all going to be completely peaceful. there are going to be moments where. i think there's a potential for trouble there always will be there's nothing we can do to avoid that. yeah just leave these members of the public. face in the the sun fine but that's not what we've been told since a number of arrests last year the muslim patrols have gone to ground despite the christian patrol activity the muslim patrols. not taken the bait. in other international news now antigovernment protests in the turkish capital ankara were met by police using tear gas and water cannon demonstrators builded

if your policy of labeling nuclear power as one of the greatest threats to the environment has left germany in desperate need of alternative resources there's obviously as you can of reports the race for green energy energy could be doing even more damage. welcome to adam wash population two hundred forty one it's a place that steeped in history the bell in this church was forged before columbus sailed for america and locals here have centuries old claim to the land it's we're all rick schultz was born and it's where he intends to die his family has owned this farm since fifteen sixty she learned a trade from his father and plans to hand the business down to his son. this has been our homeland for centuries it means everything to us but my family and my fellow villagers here face a terrible prospect our homes could soon be raised and our businesses destroyed.

it's what's beneath the land an estimated two hundred fifty million tonnes of brown coal that threatens to wipe out a wash and two nearby villages off the map they have machines or strip mining the ground for a late night or brown coal and you can see of the size of this operation the coal mine behind me is already the size of several small towns but the company. wants to grow this we dish energy giant wants to double the size of the open cast mine and fall needs more lignite for its power plant one of the dirtiest in europe the local children call it the cloud making factory it's one of the most polluting fossil fuels and it's supposed to be a thing of the past germany gets nearly twenty five percent of its electricity from solar and wind with a goal of eighty percent renewables by twenty fifty at the country burned more brown coal last year than at any time since the one nine hundred ninety s. the dirty downside of chancellor merkel's nuclear phaseout more than nine hundred
11:34 am
villagers are risk of being displaced and for some there's a feeling of history repeating itself in this region thousands had been resettled after the second world war when the communist government depended on brown coal to power its cities and factories. it makes me furious just furious first the government comes in starts developing alternative sources of energy and now we've come back to brown coal i feel very disillusioned we simply can't go back to old practices. residents have launched their own campaign to keep the diggers at bay but it's questionable if they can keep up the fight these are tiny villages with aging populations facing an energy giant with deep pockets a definitive decision has yet to be made on the fate of the villages if vattenfall does move then it likely won't be for many more years and approval by state authorities is still pending although local activists aren't optimistic so the
11:35 am
three villages will basically be gone if the plans go if the parents go through the parliaments through. our laws protect the interests of the coal mining industry and the industry managed to convince politicians that have the country abandon scald will be major problems with electricity supply. the company has said that it will recreate outer wash elsewhere a church or a church it promises a house for a house but for residents like all rick schultz giving up is simply not an option when a by over here. my ancestors fought in the thirty year war with sweden in the seventeenth century and they defended this land and i will also stand firm and fight for my land i cannot imagine what happens if i lose this battle. reporting in outer wash germany i'm lucy catherine of. this is not international live here moscow coming up

after this short break kitty pilgrim looks at the economic challenges ukraine is facing now that's in venture capital with a news team with more for you straight off the bat. 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 because the scandal and more importantly it will make the company lose
11:37 am
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 by 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 can stand up to the man what's stopping you but that's just my opinion. this is a joke. fellow children if. we can get over it seems to be running out of steam as well as. the symbolic crisis such as this we america obama is wise and more such the fight is futuristic. the next fight like be precise to.
11:38 am
be ignored. stories others refuse to nokes. phyllis's changing the walls of lights never. old pictures of today's events log on to and from around the globe. up to. fifty. it was. it was venture capital with me katie probably this week we focus on ukraine to come to remains on the brink of bankruptcy policy digit price point is dealing with its own bottle injuring another blow to its reputation meanwhile russia's currency the ruble is taking
11:39 am
a battering of it i. craned treasury is at sea with debt at around eighty percent of the value of the entire economy the country's currency is loitering around the ten year low at the moment losing around a fifth of its value just this mob credit agency fitch has downgraded the economy to junk status ukraine's acting an e.u. i.m.f. economic package soon the i.m.f. loan promised last august fell through and in december ukraine signed a fifteen billion dollar deal with russia plus the gas discounts of course this has been postponed until the new government is formed. already holds a three billion dollars worth of ukrainian debts which was issued last december of course so how is all of this been affecting the russian economy while the russian ruble has also been hit stubbornly stuck at a five year low as investors back away from a mugging market is with the threat of a debt default by ukraine rising the russian economy is unlikely to get back those
11:40 am
three billion dollars last a concert at the moment russian stocks have also slumped including gas brum which provides ukraine with sixty percent of its gas ukraine is also the main transit route for russian gas to europe where gas from has a quarter of the market share the country already owes russia about one point six billion dollars a month for natural gas so for more all the russian economy how it's been affected impacted the north of this i am. financial strain on ukraine i'm now joined by robots awls head of the neo liberal think tank the breweries group the situation at the moment is ukraine nate they say thirty five billion dollars to get themselves back. where is that going to come from because as i understand it it's not going to be one source is going to have to go to several sources in order to get help do you think that that could create some complications in itself.
11:41 am
yes the ukraine would become in the bidding itself to other countries around the world offering offering its exchange for financing in exchange for people taking on the ukraine economies dates that create a bad political situation it's not one which is conducive to ukraine being an active independent country course didn't have to happen this to come to pass it didn't have to get this way but of course if companies are going to get involved in promoting regime change within ukraine which is now taken place and there would always be instability which dries up foreign direct investment it dries up people buying ukrainian which is why it's gone to junk status really the whole process of what's happened in ukraine is deeply regrettable and the situation has been generated where the economic future is looking very bleak we've already seen
11:42 am
tensions on the street to put it very modestly indeed but when these reforms come into play if the i.m.f. loan is except says what's going to happen then that concerns me as well do you think the. we could have more problems it will sterrett see is really high since. exactly barks when the army loans are money there is always the conditions which are very onerous upon those who are saving their money we look at the money that was loaned to greece it of course ruined their economy because they have to accept that their own boy you'd be in central bank and the international monetary fund had to accept deep cuts to pensions to education because of welfare spending which actually created a deeper economic crisis a massive unemployment. involvement a naturally be properly just who would really create economic tensions and
11:43 am
austerity as well as accepting more regulation from the european union will be the last thing that ukraine actually needs ok robert we'll leave it there let's just hope things get results very quickly for the sake of the people on the streets there is getting for a dangerous and i'll stay in days robert oulds thank you for your time today are really very much appreciated the future of the digital currency bit quiet has once again been called into question because mt gox which is based in japan was once the largest bitcoin exchange mysteriously disappeared this week due to a reported million dollar theft customers have been able to withdraw their funds for more than two weeks now to discuss what this means for the big client i'm now going to be joined by the experts. in the world. to tell me how much more can the bit coin it take before people finally go off of this creates
11:44 am
a current say. honestly i don't know if you would go by a prediction because it would not have existed in the first place and to us really the question isn't so important as bitcoin for us has really been approved of a concept and it has already delivered this has been a great success of through the door open to questions about money and what money could be really never been asked in this public arena before and this and this and it is already excess but coin has had a real roller coaster on thinking about the silk road incidents as well the mt gox based we does it prove the regulated car is drunk considering style much has gone role. there is really only if you look at this one currency only there are hundreds of unregulated currencies by which we probably just mean not controlled by the states out in the open and they have little to do with the crypto
11:45 am
currency that we don't use on the recent years there is great examples all over the world from business to business exchanges that use their own currencies to help businesses to trade with each other through social currencies or even local municipalities now issuing their own currency for example in front of the secure fernando if you want for the business community the city of amsterdam issuing one for the engagement of citizens in city planning and activities there's a number of really great examples out there how and regulated currency in this sense have already worked and delivered it's really only if you design a currency with these specific features and properties as bitcoin that you can quickly see all these troubles coming right behind us well but the fact is big client is the only one that anyone has held of really on the mainstream so you think the coin in a way has given cryptocurrency is a bad image. well it's all part of
11:46 am
a very long learning curve and bitcoin as the currency now getting a lot of big bad news is of course a concern in terms of communications it's always been our effort to actually educate people and regulators and businesses and implementors at the same time to what their currency actually is and what the difference to a payment system is and once we get this message across to the currency has failed but bitcoin the payment system the protocol has really created revolutionary innovations in the sector that it was a long do for an overhaul that will stick and that will create good news and really very neutral of evolutionary neutral opportunities let's right and center while people marveling about what went wrong with that car and how we can make it better in the end actually to these new currency that will change the financial system as we know. switzerland's banking and credit suisse is accused of helping us customers to conceal their swiss accounts in order to avoid paying billions of dollars and american taxes according to

of an attack in the past seven days top stories and the latest developments this is the weekly international well we start with the breaking news this hour and that is that the. naval forces has pledged his allegiance to the crimean people it follows reports that ukrainian troops stationed in the peninsula were either quitting or joining local defense groups all mass effectively putting the authorities in crimea fully in charge of the territory. is in the crimean capital and joins me live now so tell us more maria what the meaning is behind these developments now the consequences. well on saturday story on sunday the commander of ukraine's naval forces said that haye's allegiance lies with the crimean people mr berezovsky was appointed to the post just several hours before that by the country's new or thora chase ukraine's. ukraine's self-proclaimed president took the chain of signed all the necessary papers on
12:03 pm
saturday that happened after previous commander had resigned and all that comes after we heard from crimea is officials that the situation here on the peninsula is now totally under their control and security east provided by mostly so-called self defense corps made up by locals who are working in coordination with police and now we are start we are starting receiving pictures from the ceremonies where we can see the military the ukrainian military stationed here on the peninsula pledging their head legions their loyalty to crimea as authorities and i hope you can see these pictures right now let's now listen to watch crimea's prime minister has to say about the situation here in the region. in the midst of all of the patriotic soldiers cooperate with us the vast majority of military units and law enforcement agencies have sided with the people in the crimean autonomy war and all of the hold hands who want to resist using firearms but they will be dealt with according to
12:04 pm
the law. local authorities are also of course unclear dressing room crimea's residence telling them to calm down and assuring them that the situation is under control and there is no reason for any panic but actually we don't see any panic it's been a very lovely sunday here in crimea as capital simferopol hand we hope as well as local resident hope that it will stay they sway. and that is what if a national live from the capital of crimea. well meanwhile it's not just people in crimea that who refuse to recognize a new government in kiev a wave of protests is spreading across the southeast of the country to what is like he had a shift key reports from harkov in the east ukraine. certainly the division in the country which mario was talking about was very easily tangible here on saturday when the pro russian activists and those who are not supporting the new with
12:05 pm
authorities in kiev a clash with the so-called activists of the euro might down the work securing the local administration they managed to get inside the administration and put a russian flag on top of which there have been reports of tear gas used and scores of injured the official line of that people were those with different sorts of injuries rocks were flying sticks and bait and where used against each other so it was pretty violent here pretty much the same story has been happening well maybe not as violent doesn't have to go but along the same line what's happening in many other cities in the east of ukraine in the city of donetsk and even a bit old school grounds a good many other cities in then yes for instance this is also one of the largest cities the industrial center of ukraine that the people of voted not to trust the authorities in kiev and they even called on a referendum to be held in the nearest future to decide the future of the whole region right now it's pretty much quiet but i've just listened to one of the
12:06 pm
activists of the euro my down talking in kiev from the stage that ukrainian flags must be reinstated on all governmental buildings and all local administration buildings in the east of the country where this all might go nobody knows it's pretty much a powder keg and we certainly don't know what to expect in the nearest future here in the east of the country well we all see organizers of an anti government rally in the southeastern city have been approached by to ask what is driving the protests that. thousand people come together in never. never take their way they're going to develop our cultural differences in this country generally imply that we need protection and that's this. and the police all around the country they get them they killed them and the police now is just. has just lost its moral and the only way for us is
12:07 pm
to blame protection and we have gathered today around the eastern ukraine number numers. these groups and these liberals can go to the election but first we need to have the very strong before the election we need to have what there is there are. thousands of march through central moscow in a show of support for ukrainians students veterans and politicians gathered to call for an end to the spread of extremism in fascism across ukraine and a return to national unity it was a voice i support for those in crimea with russian passports who are unwilling to leave their homes despite a potential threat to their lives activists urged a peaceful solution to the crisis. when russia agreed to a potential deployment of its military to keep the peace in crimea following a plea from local authorities off to keep government buildings were attacked on that now we've done a push cover. situation is very serious and even dangerous and the autonomous
12:08 pm
republic of crimea more than half of its population is ethnic russians and the force to ward off attacks from radical groups that came to power in kiev as a result of last week's coup now the russian president vladimir putin has addressed the parliament asking for support of potential military help let's now listen to what those have to say 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 as 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 the federation council unanimously approved the move it was specifically reiterated by both the senators and the presidential spokesman that the deployment was optional depending on the severity of the threat
12:09 pm
to the russian nationals living in the crimea and the south east territories of ukraine it simply gives the russian president the right to react promptly in case of infiltration of radical groups into those territories if there are attacks of nationalistic radicals on ethnic russians or if assaults continue similar to the ones that took place on the first of march. or to understand why crimea refuses to recognize the new regime in kiev and why it has appealed to russia for help go to our website to find a historical background to have the peninsula was separated from russia why the majority of the population want to return go to r.t. dot com for analysis. while crimean authorities were asking moscow for help the leader of ukrainian nationalist group right sector has reached out for help to one of the world's most the tourist terrorist on a social network he asked dr model to step up attacks against russia from all over
12:10 pm
the leader of the chechen islamist movement and an international terrorist basically russia's zama bin laden he was the mastermind of several deadly attacks on civilians in russia including the bombings of moscow's domodedovo airport and the metro system which took the lives of hundreds of people he wants to create an islamic state in southern russia ruled by sharia law. or russia's foreign minister responded to the appeal to the kitchen militant by pointing out the radical nature of many of those now in power in ukraine the leader of the ukrainian nationalists claimed his page where the message was posted online had been hacked well in my colleague unishe up of all of us spoke to journalist neil clark who says that such an appeal would be in line with the anti russian attitude of right wing groups there in ukraine. we think back to the one nine hundred ninety s. you know we had a lot of ukrainian hardcore neo nazis traveling out to chechnya to fight in the so-called war for separatism for russia so there's always been this link for the last twenty years or so between the most sort of hard right extremist factions in
12:11 pm
ukraine and the islamist cause in chechnya the radical islamist cause so this is an alliance that goes back quite a long way really and of course there's a third tranche of this alliance which is the neo conservatives in the west what unites the neo conservatives in the west with ukrainian neo nazis and radical islamists in chechnya is of course their hatred for russia they will do anything however extreme to get at russia and so i think this ukrainian crisis is sort of remind because once again this sort of axis of evil that's ranged against russia that combines neo conservatives in washington and in britain and in france and elsewhere with radical neo nazis in ukraine and radical islamists in chechnya this really is a kind of alliance that is targeting russia and this is just a reminder really at the same time the right denying that peeling to march saying its website was hanks' isn't some kind of damage control now that. oh absolutely i think that this has become rather embarrassing for the west really because the fact is that they used the far right to get their people in power in kiev and now these
12:12 pm
sort of statements are coming out now the extremism is there for everybody to see they're in complete denial and i think that the right sect is trying to sort of it trying to sort of back down from this now but it's all there i mean we know that they've got to they've had links rejection radicals we know that they are a radical far right you know nazi group. and now they're trying to sort of say that it wasn't them and the web site was hacked it doesn't wash i'm afraid i think we know this extremism is there it's there for everybody to see and this anti russian obsession for the western elites is costing this all be a it's very dangerous it could provoke who knows war perhaps and until the west elites drop this and drop this anti russian obsession this neo conservative influenced obsession with russia and the even eyes in russia then i'm afraid we're only going to get more chaos in the next few weeks or months. or more on our breaking news story this hour the commander of ukraine's naval forces had pledged his allegiance to the crimean people he's made the announcement of
12:13 pm

russia sending troops is the international response president obama said moscow was breaching international law and could end up isolated canada has joined in by condemning putin's military intervention both of them plus britain and france have decided to suspend preparations for the forthcoming g eight summit which is due to be held in sochi the e.u.'s foreign policy chief weighed in the pouring russia's potential use of force and her british colleagues says that there's no excuse for outside military intervention all this despite moscow still has not decided whether it will indeed send troops to ukraine well gonna change current joins us live now with more reaction from the united states so i understand your secular state has made some comments that could be open to some ridicule. while bill secretary kerry threatened to isolate russia economically and politically he threatened asset freezes and visa bans he said russia may not remain in the g eight
12:19 pm
there were threats and there was criticism take a listen to this. it's really nineteenth century behavior in the twenty first century and there is no way to start with you just don't invade another country on phony pretext in order to assure your interests while the interviewer never asked him what about iraq what about the constant threats to use force coming from washington even though secretary kerry has not received those questions they certainly crossed the minds of those who saw that interview take a listen. since when does the united states government genyen genuinely subscribe and defend to the good and defend the concepts of sovereignty and territorial integrity they certainly not do not at the moment in syria where they're backing militants who have taken over crossings in the north and in the
12:20 pm
east of the country they certainly didn't do that with their tanks libya they certainly didn't do that when they invaded iraq they certainly didn't do that when they attacked serbia over kosovo and then later on recognize cause i was in a unilateral declaration of independence the united states government really pays lip service to sovereignty and territorial integrity picks and chooses. well during this sunday interview secretary kerry was also asked about israel about prime minister netanyahu upcoming visit about the peace process and of course on those issues we heard a very different secretary kerry careful diplomatic calling for negotiations no appeals to the u.n. charter not a word about israel breaking international law and the u.s. supporting it so if you get it says that the u.s. is appealing to the you way when it's in in its interests. thanks very much indeed for that reaction there from ghana live in washington. other news now the deadly
12:21 pm
protests in this way which have left eighteen people dead since last month will be the subject of talks between the u.n. secretary general and the country's representatives and activists there have been relying over the state's economic woes a drastic surge in crime they also accuse president pressuring political rivals he's kicked out three american diplomats and blamed washington for stoking the unrest and the u.s. state department responded in kind gregory will put from venezuela and isis dot com told us the u.s. doesn't actually mind the violence. the united states has. charges for a very long time and. conservative government. governments various ways where the. military's going to dissuade them from or also the u.s. government supporting opposition groups with funding. statements that for example
12:22 pm
kerry recently gave your state kerry which essentially gave you a position. because. there are protests. it's quite clear that most of the protests are on our environment and are seeking comment protection. well there's more analysis on the crisis in venezuela was one of some striking images from the recent violent rallies on our website and also their international pressure wasn't the only reason iran had a rethink over its nuclear policies spiritual issues might be one of the key factors tehran is dramatically reducing its atomic. covering of the head for religious reasons by muslim women has caused much controversy in some european countries but says there's no problem with doing it what a football pitch called. the rise in hate crimes against muslims is proving a major challenge for britain muslim patrols displays of islamic extremism and the
12:23 pm
daylight murder of a soldier in london have all fueled violent sentiment and vigilante christian group is taking justice into his own hands. i want it to be so obvious from the because given the christian prolific there's any patrol in town also in the hills the small but make sure it's muslim patrols any political group calling themselves britain first have responded by filming what they've dubbed christie and patrols and this patrol comes complete with vehicles. the whole thing is all the t. joins them as they took to the streets in east london where we had imposed. why the area in particular because that's what. happened. was to make fun of the group has been described as far right many of their members a form of b.m.p. or e.t.l.
12:24 pm
they really get to differentiate themselves from these grapes and insist they don't want to be associated with violence pick tactics such as baiting where members stand with empty big cans to try and lure out the muslim patrols have proven controversial and some members of the creep have already placed the rest we know here during the. problems for anyone to be. carried out they surely are trying. to confront them do you think the christian. despite having a pretty condemned a muslim patrols at the time the east london mosque has been singled out by the christian patrol for criticism the mosques say they feel caught in the middle and are worried the patrol could inflame fragile community relations our community certainly feels threatened by his antics the public needs to understand is that
12:25 pm
none of these groups represent the mainstream community or wider society out on london streets and well there's not much support to be found here either. first to control the border with you shouldn't have to be considered. i'm sorry. do you think it's all going to be completely peaceful here. obviously i think there's a potential for trouble there always will be there's nothing we can do to avoid that. yeah just leave these members of the public to be harassed part of shari'a patrols. the trolls have been operating at the front line but that's not what we've been told since a number of arrests last year the muslim patrols have gone to ground despite the christian patrol activity the muslim patrols that's. taken the bait so.

one's admitted carrying out the attack but suspicion has fallen on the extremist book around the group which is known terrorize the country in its attempt to introduce sharia law. so i'll be back with more news for you and more developments from ukraine into a half an hour from now in the meantime peter the bell with crosstalk with more on the developing situation in ukraine stay with us for. the minnesota vikings football player jared allen like many pro athlete stereotypes is actually doing something for society with this n.f.l. fame and fortune he is providing homes for turning wounded u.s. veterans good job mr allan generally for some reason wealthy people don't do much to help other people besides giving money to charity to get some sort of tax break
12:28 pm
kickback the thing they don't realize that helping other people out is actually in the best interest of rich guys too if they would ever just stop to think about it a little more so mega wealthy that you could live in total isolation you're going to have to deal with the rest of the people in your country and the better off that average guy is the less likely he is going to need to steal from you to get by ellen's work is fantastic because it gets veterans out of a desperate situation returning home wounded trying to struggle to find work in a bad economy and treat their wounds in a massively over expensive medical system yeah well its plan is a drop in the bucket for the over twenty million american servicemen who have come back home but it shows that a wounded veteran with a place to live as a much better chance at a good life and the fewer vets there are living under a bridge the better society will be but that's just my opinion.
12:29 pm
i marinate join me. in part and. very interview and much. only on bombast and. hello and welcome to cross talk we're all things are considered i'm peter lavelle ukraine and the law of unintended consequences the west's internee of regime change in care has left ukraine with a central government of dubious legitimacy and economy in freefall and fuel to secession is sentiments russia has made it clear it will protect ethnic russians and russian speakers in ukraine washington warns moscow of the cost of doing so it
12:30 pm
would appear putin has called obama's bluff. to cross-talk the crisis in ukraine i'm joined by my guest. in washington he is to director of the rice institute for serbian studies in london we have alexander me curiously is a writer on legal affairs and an analyst and in moscow we cross to mark sloboda he is a senior lecturer and researcher at moscow state university or a gentleman crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i very much encourage it alexander if you're watching other television station right now or reading a western newspaper you're reading that russia is going to invade or already has invaded ukraine deconstruct that for me well russia has north invaded ukraine russia has the parliament in moscow the upper house passed a which said that mr putin is also realized to send troops into the ukraine to help
12:31 pm
stabilize the situation there if basically there is a threat to russian citizens and russian interests now that is not an invasion. it is not an attack on the ukraine's territorial integrity in fact that what is holding the ukraine together at the moment as a state what is preserving if you like the fiction that there is a ukrainian state is that russia continues to recognize that if russia start recognizing the ukraine and its present borders it would very rapidly fall apart in the boy so how do you react to all of this because. i think it's good the guardian today is saying that russia is acting like a nineteenth century power but it's just a kind of echo what alexander had to say right now and said it's russia itself that's keeping ukraine together. well this is your typical projection that i've seen i'm personally i'm having. my head replayed back to like nine
12:32 pm
hundred ninety two and one nine hundred ninety nine this is i see all of this exactly the exact phrases the exact people saying them even in some cases already in the indy example of the former yugoslavia when the end of the federation was forbidden from defending itself and then when a separate to stick over their territorial integrity became sacrosanct except with cases where it wasn't because the us back to separatists in essence no principle was in effect except whatever the government in washington said it was at any given time and it was just a complete disaster and the region has never recovered from it and i'm watching that happen in ukraine and i'm watching the breathtaking hypocrisy and duplicity of the western media who count on the fact that people don't have any sort of memory that reaches beyond yesterday you know it's a shame they had a sort of you know very yes a good market if i am going to get in let's talk about facts here ok one of the things i find extraordinary looking at western media is that there's not a specific mention that there are russian troops already in the country in ukraine
12:33 pm
under treaty agreement and you know in and they're saying that you know they're a threat to the sovereignty of ukraine which in fact ukrainian government before the situation in can have. a loud the russians to be their name the russians actually paid to be there first i'd like to say for the benefit of our viewing audience full disclosure. i have family in the ukraine i have family in the crimea in kiev and elsewhere in the country so for me this is a personal issue. as to the presence of russian troops normally in the crimea you are correct there is normally stationed something twenty six thousand five hundred russian troops by treaties signed between. the legitimate government of the ukraine and the russian federation so. these
12:34 pm
troops have. only left their bases under terms of transit that are allowed per this treaty. according to permission from the cognizant authorities of the ukraine that cognizant of the forty of the ukraine is the only legitimate authority in the ukraine at present of this level is the president of the ukraine who is victor rich. and he has requested along with the prime minister of the crimea that russian forces act within the borders of the crimea to secure and stabilize the situation from attacks and raids by right wing ultra nationalists that have been directed from the putsch regime in kiev alexander it's one of the interesting things is western media doesn't like to use the term right to protect and the west loves to use that you
12:35 pm
know to overthrow regimes here but there there are millions and millions of russian ethnic russians and russian speakers in ukraine and russia is invoking essential the right to protect but it's not recognized in the west why. well russia russia is not using actually r two p. but let's just concentrate on the right to protect right to protect is a doctrine that the western states have invented for themselves and which they treat as possessing and basically they see themselves as the only people who have the legitimate right to use it they own it they use it they overthrow governments when they want to and they don't accept that anybody else ever has the right to use it. what russia is doing is it's not actually using want to protect it's using something rather more straightforward which is it's protecting its national interests and its citizens who are in the ukraine now russia has not moved
12:36 pm
troops into the ukraine it is said it will if those people there are threatened and attacked and that is actually a pretty legitimate position it's one that many states have adopted many times and i think it is consistent with with norms of the norms of behavior that states use ok incidentally can i just go back to going to head nineteenth century. policies or what is of course actually happening is that the country that's acting in a nineteenth century way in the sense that it's trying to expand its influence is the united states it takes upon itself the right to expand into other places and overthrow governments there and disregard international law willy doesn't like is when other countries resist it to doing so and for it to talk to people to talk
12:37 pm
about nine hundred centuries behavior in this in this situation it is again to turn reality it seems to me entirely on its head ok in a point so let me go i was going to go on that. anyway president obama has warned russia there will be costs that sounds like one thousand century language to me go ahead what does that mean to you a voice in washington go ahead it actually sounds to me like fifth century politics but fifth century b.c. anybody who's read two kitties knows that the athenians came to the island of melosa and said submit or die in the millions said will why do you why do you do this there are rules among men you shouldn't oppress us just because you can and if he says oh yes we can and that's exactly why we're doing it we're stronger we'll take you out and they did that of course they lost that entire war and that's a lesson that nobody seems to be learning from it. this is remarkably crass that what i'm hearing that the whole notion of there will be costs of intervention as i
12:38 pm
said other day mr obama should be taking his own advice and talking to his own people at the state department which i don't think he's doing i think there's a seriously rebel faction within it within the united states government running its own foreign policy and forcing the president. to either accept it or admit that he's powerless ok mark one of the things i find very interesting going back to victoria nuland telephone conversation it seems to me the real one of the primary interest that the united states has in ukraine is that once crimea but that seems like the only place it won't get that depending on how events unfold as we go forward here. well i wouldn't say so much that the united states wants the crimea although it would certainly like to see the russian naval base in the poll removed i don't think that the united states in and of itself has a whole lot of interests in the ukraine the interest of the united states in the ukraine is to separate it from russia and this is operating under what is actually
12:39 pm
a nineteenth century ideology of what has been spoken of many times in the western press this idea that they see russia with the ukraine as an empire but russia without the ukraine is only a country and of course this is actually never been about russian empire russian having the ukraine but it has been about fanning sectarian tensions in order to addicks the ukraine into the european union and the greater transatlantic community and what we've seen with this attempt. as was cynically displayed in the new and victoria nuland who is acting like a us proconsul dictating. who the next government of the ukraine will be is this is clearly a case of one regime change attempt to many a putin has drawn
12:40 pm
a red line and said that enough is enough ok alexander this is interesting a red line but i think this time mr mr putin usually really answers to his own questions here i mean he says this is a red line do you think the the western powers are going to take it seriously or are they going to miscalculate still again. well i don't know that they have actually many options in this situation military challenge to what the russians are doing is simply out of the question there is no possibility i think a western mid western military intervention in the ukraine mr obama talked about costs the only cost he could come up with was basically ending russia's membership of the g. eight so that he's a western director of the world he called to me there has well past its sell by date i did the anybody in russia was very impressed by that mr putin actually didn't even go to the first g eight summit. after he was
12:41 pm
a reelected president so they can try to a few financial sanctions but ultimately they need to talk to the russians they can't avoid doing that whatever the already going i'm going to jump in here going to we're going to go to a short break and after that short break we'll continue our discussion on ukraine state with r.t. . believe me. it was a. very hard to take time. to get on. with
12:42 pm
the great work. listen . a little. winter is when the sahara comes to life. always is palm trees are being harvested.
12:43 pm
people are waiting for the biggest event of the yeah. the desert festival. this is true it is very 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. so far on a desert winter. we'll call it on the road side to the car skidded at breakneck speed and fell into a ditch and i was thrown out of the car she was like a broken dawn it wasn't a single hold piece left i thought if i lift and had a chance to start my life from scratch i would start making doles to help children and. then right after he was born the baby was all in casts. his legs
12:44 pm
are getting bigger and the ortho says get too small so we have to order new ones said lorna has raised money for us she helps us to get a leg braces five years after my potentially fatal injuries in a car crash i gave birth to my little niece says i think she's my reward for helping all those children who are selling the dogs to buy life for the children. welcome across the uk we're all things are considered i'm peter lavelle mind it would have. seen the recent events in ukraine. in the boys and i go back to you in washington marcus started on the first part of
12:45 pm
the program what is washington's interest in ukraine because one of the interesting things that i find is that there's this focus now on crimea and the east and but there's not that much attention going on right now in care of and this is a regime that is you know it would seem that is supported by the west and the i.m.f. is going to be docking on the door i mean even if they could come to a deal who are they going to give the money to to some thugs in kiev for half the country for what purpose i mean they've lost the plot here i don't know what nuland was thinking when she started this here because there's no way and the answers are very limited right now the options are very limited if zero go ahead while there is there is no plot to involves ukraine per se the one thing that i need to make crystal clear is that the political establishment in washington doesn't care a single bit about the ukrainian people at all just like they didn't care a single bit about the albanians in kosovo or in albania proper back in one
12:46 pm
thousand nine hundred nine. strobe talbott the leading western expert on russia actually wrote a forward into a book back in two thousand and two that openly argued that the war in kosovo war in one thousand nine wasn't about serbia at all or the albanians it was about the us sticking it to russia so the ukraine is just a second chapter in that story there's a political stablish mynheer did really badly wants to take out russia because of this insane fantasy they've got the russians are a threat i don't know whether that fantasy is motivated by some sort of ethnic or religious personal issues that some of the people in the establishment might have i don't want to get into that right now but there is definitely that fantasy and it's definitely driving their actions so what they really want to their ultimate prize is moscow and we've seen this before. time and again from other conk would be conquerors in europe and honestly if the us government or its political establishment think that continuing to behave like this will have a happy ending they clearly haven't been paying attention agreed mark if i go to
12:47 pm
you here in moscow one regime change too far ok one forced regime change too far for the state department and for brussels because i don't see what are the options on the table because mr putin is not bluffing. no mr putin is not bluffing and what he has seen clearly in the events in kiev and this is a porch this was the united states backing a. front of peaceful democratic protests whose core and vanguard was the group of extreme right wing ultra nationalists and openly neo nazi paramilitaries led by the right sector spilled and other such affiliated groups and both the nominal liberal opposition which the mainstream media would have you believe are actually in control in kiev and the
12:48 pm
western governments hope to play a cynical game of riding the tiger of this ultra nationalist violence into power and then shunting them off to a side and we've seen similar failed. evidence of this type of tactics in libya and in syria where violent islamic jihadists were used and there was the hope that they would simply be able to be put away and a washington supported. neo liberal liberal technical government that would reorientate the countries towards a western geo political order would be able to be put in the power it's failed in libya it's failed in syria and it will fail once again in the ukraine alexandria it's very interesting here over the last few hours and days there's been many
12:49 pm
protest rallies i would say in eastern and southern ukraine and they're carrying a russian flag and they're carrying a placard saying i'm russian and it's very interesting to me because it looks like the european union gets left with the ugly duckling in the west because it's not much of an economy there again a thuggish regime. that is illegal i mean this is a very interesting process that's being played out right now because the more they keep pushing and supporting this regime in care of the more russians in the east will gravitate towards russia well exactly and it really begs the question of what they all thought they were doing at all frankly i mean if we go back a few months when mr yanukovych which decided not to sign the association agreement he suggested tripartite negotiations with the e.u. and the russians had that happened we would not be in the situation we are in now if you play an all or nothing strategy which is what the west has been doing in the e.u. has been doing in the ukraine the very serious risk you run is that you end up with
12:50 pm
nothing or in this case quite possibly worse than nothing in other words a broken economically bankrupt rump ukraine in which there are some extremely dangerous and violent people on the loose and who will be very very very angry if this thing doesn't work out for them so quite what the you thought it was doing in this situation i really can't see but as mark will confirm people in washington and to some extent in the e.u. are actually obsessed with geopolitics if you read articles in the american academic. media. they're full of this sort of thing and it they're constantly trying to play these chess games with countries manipulating people violent people changing governments doing all of all these sort of things and it never seems to work and they never seem to learn they never step back and
12:51 pm
ask themselves what is this right or was this wrong and you know just one very last point you said that mr putin isn't bluffing one of the problems is that he's beginning to look increasingly in this situation as if the west was when it comes to when it comes to russia in the ukraine and now it's they who have their bluff called and they're looking very food noise in or in washington it is very interesting because i again i think we're in agreement here mr putin isn't bluffing so what does the west do now because they keep pushing if they keep pushing for violence is it one of confrontation because from what i can see in the east and south of ukraine they're very prepared and they don't want this scourge coming to them from kiev but there you're opinion the americans it seems to me they don't have a policy here right now except for the really angry but their original plan has failed that's pretty much it i think i don't think the e.u. is driving much of a much this year they were behind that february twenty first agreement that the
12:52 pm
extremists in ukraine or basically violated within hours and i don't think that the european union is really being asked for much i think the american opinion of the e.u. is very concisely and precisely expressed in newlands conversation and i think that's the prevailing opinion in the washington establishment what washington is doing i don't know i mean there are things that are looking gleick what they're doing and there are things and those things are completely insane and i really don't want them to do that because again completely insane a colleague of mine in serbia said the other day in an interview for another network that the russians might be playing chess but the americans are playing the only games they know. which is poker in american football so brute force and bluffing but they're in this case they're describing earth it can't run and can't pass and can't throw the ball and they're holding a pair of sevens so i'm honestly not sure who they think they're fooling they're only fooling themselves but sooner or later they're going to have to hit the reality wall and realize that the world is not
12:53 pm
a toy that they can't do this to other people that they can do this to themselves and i just hope it's a soft landing because we are talking about people who are armed with nuclear missiles mark you know eastern ukraine very well you told us that you have family there describe what kind of people they are and what is their attitude towards russia. ok well the people of the eastern ukraine since. the events of one thousand nine hundred ninety two have become rather cynical of politics they were known particularly for their apathy towards the political spectrum they are hardworking pragmatic and yes often cynical people but what we have seen across the east and south of the ukraine in the last few weeks is a quite unique phenomenon in the politics of ukraine and in the former soviet union
12:54 pm
where you see hundreds of thousands of people taking to the streets and flying russian flags not only as a sign of thankfulness for the support of the russian federation but also as an expression of their own cultural linguistic and historical identity and they have very good reason to believe that that identity is under threat from extremists that have been put into high positions within the this push regime this western backed which regime that has seized power in kiev and when you have this regime in a situation where the economy of the country is falling apart and the country is politically and ethnically divided this regimes legislative priorities which is a railed through a rotter that has been assembled out of blackmail physical threats and literal beatings of parliamentarians their legislative priorities war
12:55 pm
revoking the rights of russian speakers and the majority of daily communication in the ukraine across the country whether in the internet whether in literature read on t.v. spoken to each other is still russian so that they remove this right and the other one of the other first pieces of legislation they passed was a removal on the ban of nazi symbology and propaganda which. i don't see how anyone could conceivably argue as many in the western press have tried to do that these right wing factions these extreme nationalists and neo nazis that are right now sitting in positions of power in miami jump in here let me give alexander the last word because we only have like thirty seconds of alexander it seems like these radicals in care over are actually strengthening
12:56 pm
the national identity ethnic identity of the folks in eastern and southern ukraine . absolutely because what they are wanting to do is to completely change to the ukraine in order to basically subordinate these people to their own very nationalistic and fascistic ideas and the people in eastern ukraine won't accept that and what they're actually doing is that the people in the eastern ukraine are russian speaking orthodox eastern slavs they call themselves ukrainians because that is the nation the country in which they live if that country has known that point i really gentlemen i wish we had so much more time but we've run out of time many thanks my guest today in washington london and in moscow and thanks to our viewers for watching us here at r.t. see you next time and remember cross titles.
