1:05 pm
local council of donetsk has voted to hold a referendum on the fate of the whole region of dumbass which is the east of ukraine also we know that in the port city of odessa in the south of ukraine at least two thousand people are now protesting against jeeves's rule as well they are among the demands is the new governor as well the complete reform of the judicial system as well as something new or they have demanded today that now these so-called a right sect the hardline nationalist core of the protest in kiev to be banned the situation now in hiding of the biggest city in the used to be great is calm but some forty eight hours ago we played witness to a huge disturbance at the central square when a pro russian activist clashed with the so-called during my down activists who were sort of consoling the local administration and i tell you more about that in my report just when the self-proclaimed leaders in kiev thought they had control of the country. tells instructor the streets of some of the largest cities including
1:06 pm
her on saturday and the willing to be governed by the new with origins in the capital. i want my kids to live in peace with all our other labor both ukrainian and russian. yes doing which is much only night i've been watching how they're attacking our guys molotov cocktails and fireworks some have had their hands blow not who know that who have been legalized they fail to throw their law in the eyes of our sons we don't want such a country we want our country to be peaceful we used to work and pay taxes to the state. what started as a peaceful rally turned violent when grow russian activists clashed with those linked to the authorities in kiev with tear gas reportedly used as well as rocks and sticks more than one hundred were injured as protesters managed to gain control of the ministration building and even replace a ukrainian flag with a russian one before saturday the administration of the heart of region building
1:07 pm
was protected by the so-called self defense of my down now it is secured by the police forces and there's still great deal of uncertainty as to who actually holds the power here other cities in the east and south east i guess of the school of guns also show their distrust that the new government with clear goals to hold the referendum on the regions fate which probably means a separation from through. abandoning the pension reform the election of the governor judicial reform and the election of judges who forgotten with justice really means in case no claims are ignored there must be local river and thems according to the internationally recognized right to self-determination. when it comes to ideology in the east and the south in the crimea where millions of ethnic russians that's where millions of russians can ukrainians reside and of course they're very proud of their russian heritage and the people here who are now
1:08 pm
calling the shots they've made it very clear from day one that they have an extremely hostile attitude towards russia and they batted up how they backed out first of all they repealed the russian. law allowing russians to be an official language in ukraine they haven't done anything to stop the destruction of russian monuments having made their voice heard protesters against gives new political establishment left the squares of the cities but said unless they're listened to next sunday they might start taking this. insurance into their own hands alexy russia ski r.t. reporting from high ticket in ukraine. russia's foreign minister has responded strongly to criticism of moscow's policies on ukraine he was speaking about the crisis at the un human rights council in geneva but is anything as more. the russian foreign minister has come down hard on critics of russia's actions
1:09 pm
particularly reminding the western leaders about the fact that they have supported the opposition in ukraine during the days of protest at the end of last year and beginning of this year and thereby a sensibly contributing to the crisis of ukraine because their support for the opposition essentially gave way to the radical extremists who have permeated all branches of the current thought to claim government in ukraine thereby contributing to mayhem that is happening in the country at the moment there's more and russian foreign minister. those who try to interpret the situation aggressively who threaten us with sanctions and boycotts those same western partners of ours the repeatedly insistently encouraged the political powers that were close to them to put food in ultimatum and to refuse dialogue to ignore the concerns of the south and east of ukraine and ultimately to polarize ukrainian society we are calling on everyone to approach the situation responsibly to put aside geo political calculations and make the interests of the ukrainian people the
1:10 pm
top priority serbia level has also us this is an opportunity to remind the western officials about the agreement that was signed between the ukrainian president and the opposition leaders on february twenty first with some of the western four and foreign ministers being grantors of that signing however none of the points of the agreement have been fulfilled by the opposition and yet we haven't heard a single word of criticism from the west also sergei lavrov has reminded that the potential military action which russia's upper house of parliament has voted for on saturday is actually directed towards saving the lives of russian nationals who could be in danger in ukraine and it is important to remember that that military action could only be undertaken if the president decides to do so however he hasn't said the last word. yet and yet we have not seen the end of criticism towards
1:11 pm
russia starting with threats to cut off all ties and ending with potential sanctions against moscow russia's defense minister has denied reports that its black sea fleet has presented a mole to made him to ukrainian troops stationed in crimea ordering them to surrender by early tuesday morning reports of that ultimatum came from kiev but were not confirmed by any concrete sources russia's foreign ministry earlier issued a statement insisting that the black's sea fleet is not interfering in ukraine's internal affairs or despite having not made a decision yet on whether to send troops to crimea moscow has come under fire from western leaders washington pulled no punches as president obama made it clear russia is facing political and economic isolation but antiwar activist brian becker says the u.s. is not in a position to tell moscow what to do given washington support for the revolution i actually expected a booming voice to come out at the end and say the empire has spoken president putin and all other political leaders within earshot genuflecting do is instructed
1:12 pm
on on the ukrainian for president obama to say it would be a profound interference in ukraine's internal affairs for russia to do anything in the crimea is so hypocritical when you think that the united states and the e.u. leaders particularly germany have interfered over and over and over again into the internal affairs of the ukraine just because the west using so many fascist and fascist forces in kiev could overthrow the elected government there is now an hour there's not now give the west the rate to tell russia that they have no rights in the crimea when by force of war which the treaty is the russians clearly have rights and responsibilities in the crimea especially since it hosts they're unable base now it shows that the law is on the side of russia right now international or . well that's of all the critics condemning russia one has to the mall is going to come now explains secretary kerry threaten to isolate russia economically and
1:13 pm
politically he's threatened asset freezes and visa bans he said russia may not remain in the g eight there with threats and there was criticism take a listen. it's really nineteenth century behavior in the twenty first century and there is no way to start with you just don't enjoy another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests while the interviewer never asked him what about iraq what about constant threats to use force coming from washington during the sunday interview secretary kerry was also asked about israel about prime minister netanyahu upcoming visit to about the peace process 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 in the us supporting it so you get a sense that the u.s. is appealing to the u.n. charter when it's in its interests. well here with me now to discuss the various
1:14 pm
aspects of this developing ukrainian crisis is marc sloboda he's a senior lecturer in international relations and security studies at moscow state university but let's start with this rumor that an ultimatum has been issued to the ukrainian military in crimea that they got to surrender by three o'clock chews day morning now this is being dismissed as complete nonsense by russia's defense ministry so where these sort of rumors coming from well the ukrainian putsch in the ukraine has made a statement that they have acquired this information from the media and the media in particular the the newspaper the ukrainian truth the problem has claimed that they got this information from the government so you seem to have a bit of a circular flow of misinformation going on here and i think we have to remember that we are basically in the midst of hillary clinton the u.s. secretary of state has said before an information war that is more heightened in the current crisis than ever so i think we have to be very careful about any kinds
1:15 pm
of information like this that is dominating the sphere out there but there is clear from nation that many of those ukrainian troops have now switch sides does that actually defuse the situation or could actually escalate tensions well i think it could only be seen as defusing the situation because right now despite western claims and hysteria that the russian federation has invaded the ukraine what we see is that the stabilisation operation with the express permission of the democratically elected president of the ukraine viktor yushchenko which and the cognizant of forty's the prime ministers of the autonomy republic of the crimea that the situation has been stabilized not a shot has been fired and a whole host of weapons today including four hundred kilograms of explosives axes weapons many of them from western military arsenals were stopped at the board. or
1:16 pm
from being infiltrated by ultranationalists into the crimea today. the states have repeatedly backed the self appointed route is there in kiev who ousted president but we're hearing now that the mayor of the astounding capital tallinn has voiced serious concerns over the missy of the ukrainian government he believes that those currently in charge of the country are incapable of resolving this crisis or any other issues state now that mark is an interesting point isn't it while some experience to these people having power for a while talking about one of them being an internationally renowned boxer but not a politician ok well it should be said that first of all the mayor who made this statement is of russian ethnicity and so he has chosen to take the russian perspective on this particular issue but of course i think it is the logical conclusion to arrive to he i think specifically said that
1:17 pm
this regime this which in the ukraine that's occupying kiev has come to power on the streets with the power of baseball bats and guns which is exactly what we've seen now. the party of the boxer that you mentioned vitali klitschko doesn't actually have any seats in the current government they have chosen not to be a part of it and we've seen actually the vast majority of the seats are held by people who were retreads from the last orange revolution. or fatherland party which was once headed by yulia timoshenko and the current prime minister served in that administration and that government was soundly rejected at the last elections for its own corruption so they do have some experience but i wouldn't exactly call it a good experience they failed at running the country terribly the only other additions to this are a number of these nationalists who have been placed in charge of the military the
1:18 pm
defense a. security council the stock about international action now the west's reaction to what moscow has proposed to do and what it's doing at the moment the u.s. and the you have coming out with some threats sanctions indeed even threatening to kick russia out of the g. eight what do you make of this sort of reaction and do you think we will actually see them go ahead with these threats is there a lot they can actually do ok even western foreign policy experts think tanks such as fiona hill the brookings institution have admitted that. the u.s. in this particular situation is essentially toothless and has no leverage over russia in this situation the g. eight is let's face it institution that is well past its sell by date to the g twenty is the only economic forum in the world of that type that particularly matters and president putin didn't even go to the last g eight meeting upon.
1:19 pm
being reelected president so. and we also have to remember that the european and so the union itself appears to be extremely divided on the issue with germany belgium and several other leaders expressing that expelling russia from the g eight not that it would really. bite very much but. they don't seem to be in agreement even on that how would the international community now react to the calls of help from the kiev authorities there saying that wall perhaps could break out they need help could indeed nato get involved ok well the phrase the international community of course i think we're talking about the west because the west is not the world and in fact china's position iterated today almost exactly match that of the russian federation's own position on the issue so we're not talking about the international community we're talking about the west and. no one has seriously suggested
1:20 pm
that the west well. actually commit the military forces into the ukraine in support of this putsch in the ukraine even if they back that everyone is well aware that it has absolutely zero democratic or constitutional legitimacy and they are not going to risk war with me. thanks very much for the moment you'll stay with me for the second half of this program in the meantime thanks for your thoughts he's a senior that turn into mush relations and security studies at moscow state university more on ukraine after a very short break including the people on my down as kiev's independence square we're running against the unfair distribution of riches but now the new order points to on it dogs to rule economically powerful regions stay with us for the details on that. good luck. to build
1:21 pm
a. mission to teach me. this is why you should care only. wealthy british. markets. find out what's really happening to the global economy. speak your language. programs and documentaries in arabic it's all here on the. scene from the world's hot spots interviews intriguing story. to. visit.
1:22 pm
several russian cities on the border with ukraine have seen massive rallies in support of the russian speaking population living next door around twenty thousand people took to the streets to uncover the threat over the threat of radical groups posing to the population of the threats posed to the population of ukraine now the crowds emphasize the cultural and historical ties between both nations and some are urging the authorities to organize relief funds to help those across the border. in his protests against the new authorities in ukraine spread across the southeast of the country. help from some of the people who. on my down here is independence square we're running against two of the country's oligarchs have been appointed governor in restive but economically powerful regions it's part of kira's campaign to replace officials it doesn't trust peter all of a takes
1:23 pm
a closer look at the men being given this power. the oligarchs who helped to finance the coup against vick the un a covert his government coming into power two of those have been appointed as governors in the all important industrial heartland of eastern ukraine. we've seen them on ski takeovers the governor that now he's the third richest man in the country worth around two point four billion dollars as the head of ukraine's major commercial bank and in two thousand and three he made the news himself as he was investigated about threats made against the life of a lawyer that lawyer eventually was shot and seriously wounded after the investigation into mystical of all skew was dropped else weigh in don't yet screw seeing surrogate total takeover as the governor there he's one of the top ten richest in the country worth around two billion he made that money out of the i and
1:24 pm
steel business but he said a familiar face around the interim government and not what they're looking for really they want people loyal to their cause and they're wanting people that help to finance the coup to all to get rewards for helping do just that elsewhere we have a new interior minister here in kiev role going to of now he takes over is the interior minister not worth as much as the two governors financially only around four hundred million dollars there what is interesting about him is that in twenty twelve he appeared on a one of interpol's most wanted list in connection with a land deal those charges were eventually dropped however the giving of these roles to some of the richest in the country in some of ukraine's most powerful oligarchs isn't going to sit well with the people who were taken out on to the streets of independence square when they wanted to overthrow the government they wanted to
1:25 pm
make sure that they could get rid of the of the oligarchs and it seems that these oligarchs are now finding themselves quite important positions of power. so let's continue our talk now with more about he's a senior lecturer in international relations and security studies at moscow state university and your reaction to that people in the east of the country are now protesting not any against authorities in kiev but also against those appointments billionaire has been appointed by the the central government in kiev i mean why would they actually feel even more discontent by doing that do you think well i think this is one of the most shocking. hypocrisy is that is the monstrous of of the nature of this regime that has taken power in kiev for months the call on them i don was not actually if you spoke to the people there they would deny that it was at all about the e.u. association agreement which the western mainstream media has presented it as but they presented it as a as against
1:26 pm
a corrupt government who was close in bed with the family or the oligarchy particularly of the donbass region which what we're talking about here and yet when the people of the east and south now rise up and show some political activity against the regime in kiev this new regime then turns to these very same oligarchy and directly appoints them to rule over and suppress this political resistance in the east and south and and this is such rank hypocrisy that it is it would almost be absurd how do we see those developments now in the east of the country you talked a lot about what's going to happen in the east ok well there were large protests against these appointments today crowds particularly crying out in don it's about. to root out and government buildings we're seeing in donetsk and harkee by the
1:27 pm
people to prevent these people from seizing power and also in protest against their own party of the region officials who are not taking a strong enough stance they feel against the. so the genie is out of the bottle in the south in the east and we're seeing a real political awakening here and effectively the country is partitioned at this point much has been made of the fact not a single shot has been fired when it comes to the military confrontation was seeing that in ukraine but do you see violence unfolding between of the factions now in the last few days. there in many cities across the south in the east and then elsewhere in the country almost completely unreported by the western press there are nightly street battles between politically an ethnically divided militia is going on just right now in odessa there are large crowds of pro russian odessa and several bus loads of right sector ultranationalists that have been brought in both
1:28 pm
sides are armed with. makeshift weapons and there's going to be blood on the streets of odessa tonight and we've seen the same thing in the corner coffee there is an incredible amount of violence going on and this is exactly why russia has felt the need to come into the crimea. to restore order and security and they have said that if the violence continues in the east and south they may have to take measures there as well very briefly the democratic solution to all of this referendum in crimea. will that be the day perhaps a referendum in the east in the people what they want to get it's difficult to see how a referendum can be held under conditions of this violence of disputes cities and done the lugansk refused to even recognize the authority has a referendum for more autonomy or is it actually perhaps a breakaway from ukraine and russia the nature of these referendums is changing
1:29 pm
almost on a daily basis further and further away from kiev and towards russia thanks very much indeed really interesting to talk to you if you could give us your analysis on this ongoing development in ukraine. also russian senate has some tough questions on ukraine that's after the break. little. little. live . crosstalk
1:30 pm
rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want. in two thousand and shame one of the first things released by wiki leaks was a secret video recording that actually looked like a video showing american to actually collect talk just a dozen people in iraq this is going to means to live in a society of images of violence of become normal this is what the sense of isolation and lack of empathy look like. when we try and experience in places that only disassociate. and body and action. activity we also have seen from certain kinds of maryland i absolutely am frightened of the potential games desensitize people you know they can because the military uses games. of war is not so bloody
1:31 pm
but it is killing and killing exacts a penalty of a killer. people for whom. it is decided by popular media don't get. a welcome to see him go and serve the shevardnadze they taught him as republic of crimea and ukraine has for centuries been populated by ethnic russians as
1:32 pm
revolution unfolded in care of the republic or france to bludge allegiance to the new government to protect ethnic russians moscow is considering the possibility of sending troops to the region what will it take to peacefully settle the crisis will today have joy. by russian senator. ukraine is torn apart by revolution western politicians cheered in ukraine's mind on radical nationalist groups claim power across the country. in crimea ethnic russians are now asking for moscow's protection where is ukraine's legitimate government what will it take to restore peace and unity. and what are the chances outside forces will have to step in. and i guess today is a claim of russia senator a member of the foreign affairs committee it's really great to have you with us so we're just going to start from the latest news why did you guys approve the possibility of sending russian troops if mr will because according to this is
1:33 pm
a right to do only duration. so to say give permission to a president to send our troops to our country or to move our troops inside this or that foreign state and to give this rights to the president he asked us he addressed. it was our response to that address so now we have everything according to our constitution according to the article one hundred two of the constitution of the russian federation but to explain to our viewers what was the core point why did you all decide to actually approve this bill does is to protect our troops out to russia and to protect. soldiers. staying in crimea this is according to another no which is the defense law of the russian federation article this is the this is
1:34 pm
the very situation of this law according to this article and certainly to protect them we have to have some flexibility to do that. even if we cross that kind of red line somewhere in crimea. if we have no such kind of mission now with such kind of vision and we can protect . our citizens of the russian federation and military troops inside crimea but as of now we're talking about permission and i want to emphasize . the troops haven't been deployed yes absolutely and even the approval of the probably doesn't mean that. this is a. demonstration of the instrument we can do it and this is the possibility that official possibility to realize that to implement that instrument
1:35 pm
but it is not for our troops there of course not but what we're seeing from the western media. outlawing reaction saying that russia is occupying crain being such an acute reality something that wasn't even happened yet either they do not know the real things all they like and that's. what needs to happen for the russian troops actually to be deployed in crimea with a scenario. i prefer not to speak about things which may be. practical politicians might just to. make a decision to have the reality. of the senate has approved and given the right for the russian troops to be deployed so you must have a scenario not a. president who. kind of orders forces directly relevant ariens you have no such rights so
1:36 pm
we know for sure that without our decision it is not possible to protect in the proper way. military people. and that's it but i know you're being very diplomatic because this is your job but you must have a certain picture in your head why you've approved it in case of what exactly are you speaking about my personal view and of course not like i said that. we know that it is a real civil war now in ukraine territory we know well that there are a lot of people some people with weapons whom we do not know. not all of the official military forces of ukraine and to protect. their in crimea. military base we have to be sure
1:37 pm
that we. really do that. even in this if they open fire i'd like to remind you one scenario which happened exactly about six years ago in. the. people. involved and the. trying to protect the small base without. killing fire and we do not want to repeat that kind of scenario we fail to prepare . for that. very negative scenario of court but we have to be prepared to protect our people there and now we're going to have to crimea to our correspondent marius national who bring us up to date with the latest developments maria tell us how are the crimean reacting to the developments. well what happened in kiev and what many here in ukraine see as unarmed coup de ta has caused
1:38 pm
a dramatic split among the population of these country we see people divided into those who support the country's new authority and those who don't recognize them as the judgment of power and protest against them and demonstrate an old possible means that they don't want to be with them and they don't see the future with them and this is particularly the case of the eastern and southern ukraine and especially crimea this is a very special region the majority of the population the rest nic russians here and what we see here is quite unanimous we see thousands strong crowds thousand strong demonstrations all across this region in all major cities people take to the streets officials and ordinary residents men women entire families to show that they don't want to be with them and they don't recognize them as
1:39 pm
a legitimate power as the judgment of sorties over this country for example in the city of sevastopol in the pool of civil stupor just one hundred kilometers away from where we are now local residents rejected kiev appointed mayor and later they had of police that are who was also signed from the capital and this is a common mood to hear me priscilla gers are said to be leaving their positions and joining crimean self-defense forces can you confirm that i have to admit that at this point it's not very easy to say exactly what is going on i'm on the ukrainian military base here on the peninsula you have to understand that these are very sensitive issue and it's not easy to get an access to military bases here across the crimea talk to the accredited military but. the population is divided and this is apparently what's happening among the military as well and this is almost exactly what we're hearing from local authorities today hillah crimea's
1:40 pm
prime minister came to media and he's sad that some of the officers some of the soldiers were leaving their arsenals and were giving up their weapons and were declaring that they no longer. belong to the ukrainian military forces and they quit the military forces but all those and we understand that this is the majority of the military here they may decision to side with crimea as a source but we understand that to situation today mostly in mainly controlled by so-called self-defense schools made up of locals in college a nation with regional police we see these people they don't wear any specific uniform they look quite civil and they're patrolling streets of major speeches here in the crimea day and night and not only strategic all governmental buildings but just the streets so they don't want any panic any violence to happen in this ha's
1:41 pm
and this is them main mission and we're also hearing from local sources him who are also worried about panic that could spread among the population that they are calling on people to stay calm and to be calm but actually we don't see much panic here for example lane crimea's capital simferopol and we hope that it will stay this way primary thank you very much that was when i finish our correspondent in crimea we're going to take a short break we'll come back with central claim of to talk about the broader picture around crime here stay with us.
1:42 pm
they look like bounty yard. where the locals can enjoy the sun and the ocean. but what was buried a few years ago. means these people are suffering the consequences. how much more poison lies on the this ground. behind this still is when there is what we call the callet bank on which there is a because it alters the code left by security test which calls for the station of radionuclides despite what should be screening efforts there remains the don't hold it i just a little less than two of the laws of the sodium when you're stuck in a rock gone down to the coral reef good job it's out of college ten meters down nuclear tests a never ending legacy on oxy. slip
1:43 pm
under bush all my life he's making news all the face just like you know. pleasure to have you with us here on t.v. today i roll researcher. to the wheel caught on the road side to the car skidded at breakneck speeds and fell into a ditch and i was thrown out of the car she was like a broken dome it wasn't a single hold piece left us and i thought if i lived and had a. to start my life from scratch with that i would start making goals to help children it's gone right after he was born the baby was all in casts.
1:44 pm
his legs are getting bigger and the ortho says get too small so we have to order new once said lauren 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. i think she's my reward for helping all those children who is selling the dolls to buy lunch for the children. they came a rush instead of her talking about the situation around crimea so the russian parliament approval to actually deployment of forces in ukraine states that troops may stay there until the situation in ukraine is completely stabilise what exactly needs to happen for the situation in ukraine to be considered stable well and you
1:45 pm
have a decision or president because this is now a responsibility to see where it will finish but i concede that there are some points anyhow first of all we have to understand well that we are speaking not with provisional government but with something more constant that we have to know who is the real president over ukraine but not the guy who is sitting in their parliament because it is not according to their own constitution not to did nearest one the last one not the previous one then we have to see. this streets free from any military people even if from my down i don't know from what others. i mean they can have but. but they have to go back to the declare ration sign twenty first of february more or
1:46 pm
less on the same conditions when we will understand that the situation is really under control of the people of this country than somebody else tell at least just a decision to step in run contrary to the one thousand nine hundred four international agreement on the status of ukraine where russia united and united states have agreed to guarantee ukraine's territorial integrity to guarantee them this digital integrity. not speaking about something which is not under this agreement we are speaking about possibility of people in ukraine. or green to solve their problems themselves without any pressure from abroad without any pressure from the crowd of criminals without any pressure from the streets according to their own constitution and that's it and if people prefer to call for duration of the duration after them if they prefer to give more rights to the autonomy in crimea this is their rights
1:47 pm
we are not speaking about something else so there is no talk about secession question not consider taking on a. very special level of course not it is not possible at all why don't we respect the state as a state as a part of the european society as a member of the council of europe as a member of the united nation. always a bow to the integrity of this country but of course the political structure of this country the division of this country the administrative reforms of this country everything cans of the people but not just group small group of politicians sitting somewhere in the square. just three days ago russian parliament has also accepted simplified the procedure actually other territories to join russian federation territories what that was no no no and one of the was the sort of the
1:48 pm
law which was. adopted twelve years ago by the state duma and there are some procedures may be theoretically speaking about ukrainian people are not speaking about bill russia. because. there are a lot of procedures procedures to do that and they can see that we have no such conditions now speaking about today and maybe the day after but no. this is really a case moreover i can tell you that the strategy of my country is not to have more territories but talk of. integration. based on principles when we respect each other each country has its own. when we have our decision only when we have a balance of interests and this is. the new eurasia economic union so this
1:49 pm
is a dream so to see if you like but not. of one country to make a great big. or be about to crimea most of the people in crimea speak russian people in other regions in ukraine but then we have the post code which parliament a new parliament first decision that they're taking as actually to strip russia off their regional russian language of the original status why the thing that happened was that the first decision. maybe they opened their all their real face these people open their real face in twenty first century i cannot imagine any serious politicians in the world could lie. to start with such kind of actions it was not a mistake it was really demonstration of the main aims of the people
1:50 pm
sitting in the. name themselves the parliament of ukraine. these people. where ready to look through all. possible scenario which may happen after the decision and that is why. about a week after you've been involved people prefer to speak russian usually they prefer to speak their own language there but. this strange very provocative decision they opened the pandora's box they open the books and they press people from their houses through the streets not just in. crimea but in all parts of this country well the members of the nationalists award and movement party actually not movement have threatened to take nuclear weapons if the russia doesn't back down do you take this threat seriously well. they have
1:51 pm
a lot of crazy people this. seems to me feel. that they're crazy make this threat less serious. and crazy people may really have to believe that speaking about nuclear weapons. will be not so active as they were during the previous events in that square what exactly do you mean i mean that. question. is. if anybody like to play games such kind of perspectives if you're speaking about well first of all. let's mind that they have no nuclear weapons but they have nuclear power stations well that's why i say we're for nuclear station and i know this because but i can tell you that not only these supposed asians very generous
1:52 pm
they have a lot of chemicals they have a lot of. plants and we have to be sure that this neighbor states all of these. places protected in a proper way russia's ambassador tonight eight nations that your king has called on all sides to help curb the radical forces operating active radical forces operating in ukraine why do you think that we're not seeing any response on this particular problem from the west. well. i can tell you that we started in december with proposals to open negotiations between the three sides in triangle between moscow brussels and unfortunately. your preferred to do it in the wrong way so to speak with give separately and with moscow separately now we are again. this
1:53 pm
kind of negotiations with the round table including politicians including. decision makers and this is seems to be the only way out and the only peaceful way out president obama as of now has threatened all specified costs if russia and what led a close ally those calls what do you think well first of all it seems to me that mr look at yourself and. his colleagues in washington and in the european union they are too provocative during all the previous days weeks and even months and it seems to me that with this support we received this crisis so they have to pay these costs. this is not just a computer game we're speaking about the very serious themes we scrap and not. i don't know. but we're speaking about things which is really new. and
1:54 pm
we know we'll up and. ready to react because this is not just. brothers and certainly to help brothers if you like to help our own people to go out of these very generous situation read they have to do everything in the best way in the proper way but. again it seems to me that mr obama he and his colleagues they are responsible for this state over this crisis but the international community is calling on all sides to engage in dialogue who should russia speak to your craning government. provisional government is really. have. any serious power now but we need somebody with whom we can speak there so we need some time and maybe with
1:55 pm
the. european partners and us from washington from. the platform of the united nations just to find the real way out because. this solution for the benefit of the peace on the world on the globe and. that. too provocative activity politician will oh this is the way we do not want to. receive next to this civil war we like to close this but there are books the crime problem that is actually preparing to sign an association association agreement with the e.u. one more time you work closely with the e.u. what do you think needs right now and play. and stable divided country that's on the verge of bankruptcy. it seems to me that. decision reach is
1:56 pm
based not on economical situation but on some political ambitions of western politicians but. it's very serious remark all of them i mean mr barroso mr the european parliament will be out of their offices in a few months. in me into the elections to the new parliament and they have to have new leaders of these european union so we prefer to speak with the. politicians about some sort of things but anyhow. my point. the european union it hasn't enough money for that it hasn't enough. support even inside the european union from their member states to realize all this . so to say programs which they promised to boy. side just
1:57 pm
really say thing that they need people in the government will be against ukraine. any. i am very sure about that it is not possible to see ukraine inside the european union because the. main interests of the member states of the union this is not because of position of moscow they never accept them as the equal member state inside the european union center came with thank you very much for this interview this was russian center and they came from the foreign affairs committee else there were shows upper house of parliament we're talking about the situation in crimea what may happen what's going on right now that's it for this edition of so sankoh stay with us for the next time .
1:58 pm
dramas that could be ignored. story others refuse to see. places change. to picture. from around the globe. right investigation in the fishing industry reveals the hidden in troubled waters of fish fun. to me because. i spread all over and over

believe in the. crime is no longer under kiev's command an entire ukrainian air force division says it will follow the orders of local authorities bringing the total number of troops who switch sides to almost six miles and last. well known to be created the crisis in ukraine and how they did it russia's foreign minister response to threats of isolation and sanctions over the country's policies on ukraine by accusing some in the west of escalation the crisis in the first place. some of ukraine's riches only had the control of two economic powerhouse regions we can't keep to stamp out the rebellious sentiment sweeping across the southeast. also the sad good intentions bad consequences western humanitarian convoys to syria are reportedly being used by one of the european jihadist to join the fighting in
2:01 pm
the war torn country. from a studio city here in moscow this is not international with the twenty four hours a day and in ukraine air force division has pledged allegiance to the crimean people eight hundred personnel and almost fifty will planes are now under the command of local authorities and that brings the total number of troops have reportedly switch sides in the peninsula to almost six thousand and just two days. as more. well this is an air force base here in the crimea in the aviation that they have forty five make fighter jets and about eight hundred personnel members and all of them have now swore their allegiance to the crimean authorities becoming an addition to other crimean police military border guards navy
2:02 pm
emergency services who are have all said that they will not fulfill what they call are illegal orders coming from the self-appointed government of point i thought he's in kiev it's not only about those who were in service before the uprising happened. the former chief commander in chief of ukraine's navy fleet who was appointed by the new authorities in kiev after the uprising you know says that the only all orders will take will come from also local authorities here in the crimea. i. swear allegiance to the people of the autonomous republic of crimea and the city of sevastopol i swear to strictly comply with the orders of the supreme commander of crimea and the commanders of military units approved by him as well as with the requirements of military regulations i swear to honorably perform my duty and protect the life and freedom of the residents of crimea and the city of sevastopol . meanwhile it seems support within the military of the new york authorities in
2:03 pm
kiev is declining even in western parts of the country there are reports that several special force brigades have refused to fulfill your orders to march on the crimea here on the peninsula most of the zero local military bases in arsenals are now under the complete control of local authorities those servicemen who refused to pledge their allegiance to the autonomous republic of crimea of either a left or a resigned all together now currently all of the strategic facilities like airports government buildings even the streets of cities are patrolled by self-defense squads and basically local authorities are currently building their own independent defense ministry and navy while kiev has been drafting reserve servicemen to. their military forces but so far only around one point five percent of these reserves show the. government sentiment is swelling in the east of the country
2:04 pm
thousands are running against ukraine's interim authorities in the cities of the nets and the death with protesters taking control of local administration buildings in cities. of the biggest city in the east of the country. well we have reports now of several hundred men nonviolently a seized the local administration building in the city of donetsk the huge industrial sound in the east of the country and all these activists have the local administration under control and they demand that the governor which was appointed early out during the weekend by one of the only guards of the east of ukraine minister. for him to be sacked and you government to be appointed so now they're controlling the administration building and according to unconfirmed reports the local council of donetsk has voted to hold a referendum on the fate of the whole region of dumbass which is the east of ukraine also we know that in the port city of odessa in the south of ukraine at least two thousand people are now protesting against jeeves's rule as well they are
2:05 pm
among the demands is the new governor as well the complete reform of the judicial system as well as something new they have demanded today that these so-called or right sect the hardline nationalist core of the protest in kiev to be banned the situation now in hiding of the biggest city in the used to be great is calm but some forty eight hours ago we played witness to a huge disturbance at the central square i went through russian activists the clash with the so-called during my down activists who were sort of consoling the local administration and i tell you more about that in my report just when the self-proclaimed leaders in kenya thought they had control of the country. there are thousands took to the streets of some of the largest cities including on saturday and the willing to be governed by the new with origins in the capital. i want my kids to live in peace with all our other laid bare bones ukrainian and russian. yes
2:06 pm
doing which is money all night i've been watching how they're attacking our guys molotov cocktails and fireworks some have had their hands blown out who announced that who have been legalized they fail to throw their law in their eyes at our sons we don't want such a country we want our country to be peaceful we used to work and pay taxes to the state. what started as a peaceful rally turned violent when grow russian activists clashed with those linked to the authorities in kiev with tear gas reportedly used as well as rocks and sticks more than one hundred were injured as protesters managed to gain control of the demonstration building and even replace a ukrainian flag with a russian one before saturday the administration of the heart of region building was protected by the so-called self defense of my down now it is secured by the police forces and there are still great deal of uncertainty as to who actually holds the power here other cities in the east and southeast i guess of the need to
2:07 pm
give it a bit of glue ganske also show their distrust that the new government with clear goals to hold a referendum on the region's fate which probably means a separation from teves rule. abandoning the unfair pension reform the election of the governor judicial reform and the election of judges who forgotten with justice really means in case no claims are ignored there must be local river and them's according to the internationally recognized right to self-determination. when it comes to ideology in the east and the south in the crimea where millions of ethnic russians that's where millions of russians and ukrainians reside and of course they're very proud of their russian heritage and the people in kiev who are now calling the shots they've made it very clear from day one that they have an extremely hostile attitude towards russia and they batted our house they backed it
2:08 pm
up first of all they repealed the russian. law allowing russians to be an official language in ukraine they haven't done anything to stop the destruction of russian monuments having made their voice heard protesters against gives new political establishment left the squares of the cities but said unless they're listened to next sunday they might start taking this. into their own hands. reporting from high school in ukraine. russia's foreign minister has responded strongly to criticism of moscow's policies on ukraine he was speaking about the crisis at the un human rights council in geneva what is really an english tells us from the russian foreign minister has come down hard on critics of russia's actions particularly reminding the western leaders about the fact that they have supported the opposition in ukraine during the days of protest at the end of last year and beginning of this year and thereby a sense of the contributing to the crisis of ukraine because there is support for
2:09 pm
the opposition essentially give way to the radical extremists who have permeated all branches of the current thought to claim government in ukraine thereby contributing to mayhem that is happening in the country at the moment here's more from russian foreign minister. but what should those who try to interpret the situation aggressively who threaten us with sanctions and boycotts those same western partners of ours that repeatedly insistently encourage the political powers that were close to them to put forward an ultimatum and to refuse dialogue to ignore the concerns of the south and east of ukraine and ultimately to polarize ukrainian society we are calling on everyone to approach the situation responsibly to put aside geo political calculations and make the interests of the ukrainian people the top priority serbia level has also us this is an opportunity to remind the western officials about the agreement that was signed between the ukrainian president and the opposition leaders on february twenty first with some of the
2:10 pm
western four and foreign ministers being granted as of that signing however none of the points of the agreement have been fulfilled by the opposition and yet we haven't heard a single word of criticism from the west also sergey lavrov has reminded that the potential military action which russia's upper house of parliament has. voted for on saturday is actually directed towards saving the lives of russian nationals who could be in danger in ukraine and it is important to remember that that military action could only be taken if the president decides to do so however he hasn't said the last word yet and yet we have not seen the end of criticism towards russia starting with threats to cut off all ties and ending with potential sanctions against moscow russia's defense ministry has denied reports that its black sea fleet has presented an ultimatum to ukrainian troops stationed in crimea ordering
2:11 pm
them to surrender by early tuesday morning and the reports of an ultimatum came from kiev but were not confirmed by any concrete sources russia's foreign ministry earlier issued a statement insisting the black sea fleet is not interfering in ukraine's internal affairs what despite having not made a decision yet on whether to send troops to crimea moscow has come under fire from western leaders washington pulled no punches as president obama made it clear russia is facing political and economic isolation but only war it has brought the u.s. is not in the position to tell moscow what to do given washington support for the revolution. i actually expected a booming voice to come out at the end and say the empire has spoken president putin and all other political leaders within earshot genuflecting do is instructed on on the ukrainian for president obama to say it would be a profound interference in ukraine's internal affairs for russia to do anything in the crimea is so hypocritical when you think that the united states and the e.u.
2:12 pm
leaders particularly germany have interfered over and over and over again into the internal affairs of the ukraine just because the west using semi fascist and fascist forces in kiev could overthrow the elected government there is now an hour there's not now give the west the right to tell russia that they have no rights in the crimea when by force of war which the treaty is the russians clearly have rights and responsibilities in the crimea especially since it hosts their naval base now it shows that the laws on the side of russia right now international or western states have repeatedly backed the self appointed route as in kiev who else did president which put the matter of the estonian capital tannen as voiced serious concerns over the legitimacy of the new ukrainian government as it was brought to power by radical groups he believes those current in charge of the country are incapable of resolving this crisis or any other issues of state for the council
2:13 pm
doesn't hold the same opinion as tons merits calling on europe to help the self-appointed government in kiev and joined in the denunciation of russia's actions and to get more now from artie's to syria who is in but in so moscow he had been labeled as the aggressor. that's right well the aim of the meeting today of the foreign minister zarif we need to find a common ground or joint position in the engaging or dealing and responding to russia so this is a statement that they had agreed upon the strongly condemn the clear violation of ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity by russia's act of aggression and they said that russia broke international obligations and they called on russia to withdraw and retreated the troops back into the barracks and to threaten potential sanctions basically such as suspect targeted suspension of bilateral agreements possibly of these negotiations which have been going on since two thousand and seven but no actual sanctions today but the possibility they say if deescalation
2:14 pm
doesn't happen in the crimea now before going into this meeting today there was wide expectation that the response actually would not would be slightly muted compared to what the u.s. had said over the weekend when you had the american secretary of state john kerry having said that russian president vladimir putin might find himself with a frozen asset freezes and washington was also encouraging and threatening the kicking out of russia from the g. eight group of world leading economies and this is an idea that germany really have been opposed to at the german foreign minister had said that the g. eight platform is actually a way for the west to be speaking directly with russia he question whether it's actually a good idea to get rid of this platform altogether now this kind of measured if you will analysis of what's going on is also reflected in in some of the german press analysis media analysis here in germany and also the belgian
2:15 pm
a foreign minister had also want against any hawkish actions against russia but that is one count in the e.u. the other camp with the likes of the swedish foreign minister or those are from the ex soviet satellites wanted harsher sanctions so today was actually trying to find . common ground now in terms of russia's reaction to this to this accusation of aggression the foreign minister sergei lavrov accuse the west of putting its own geo political calculations at the feet of ukraine but in fact sergei lavrov is meeting with the foreign policy chief catherine ashton on tuesday and the e.u. had called for an extraordinary e.u. council meeting on thursday this week live in but then thanks very much indeed for that. well the guardian columnist the guardian newspaper columnist john steele says that john kerry should be criticizing the extremists claiming power in kiev and not . giving themselves out on a limb by making these very threatening noises about expelling russia from the ga
2:16 pm
trade sanctions and financial penalties and so on naming people who won't be allowed to travel to the west i mean you know russia is an important world power in the west need ships to help with finding a solution to the iranian nuclear issue on the syrian civil war we need russia so to try and you know shut russia out is just absurd to an international relations there are differences between countries you don't just boycott them or through russia's not some tiny country you just push into the corner forget about the american scourge person there and so there. you are very close to too much current to the right forces center right sector but unfortunately you know one of the people one of the right wing causes is now the difference in national security minister in the government so it's not encouraging but that's what kerry
2:17 pm
should be talking about not just criticizing russia he should be criticizing the david the mists in the career of a new government morally tense situation in ukraine and other news for you in just a minute here on r.t. international. join me. in park and. terry contribute. only on.

2:21 pm
a land deal those charges were eventually dropped however the giving of these roles to some of the richest in the country in some of ukraine's most powerful oligarchs isn't going to sit well with the people who were taken out on to the streets of independence square when they wanted to overthrow the government they wanted to make sure that they could get rid of the of the oligarchs it is. seems that these oligarchs now finding themselves quite important positions of power. get the latest updates and analysis on ukraine whenever you need them and also they're avoiding military service by all means as ultra-orthodox jews in israel turn out in their files and has to denounce government plans to end their exemption from military g.g. . plus sign of relief from everett because green the movement of los angeles band environmentally questionable oil and gas drilling techniques. online.

aid convoys are reportedly being used as trojan horses for one of the european jihadists heading for syria it's believed thousands of young muslims are traveling to the war zone and they using humanitarian missions to help get them there are a first has been finding out ambulances destined for aids distribution ahead of the roughly a three thousand mile journey that will take lim across europe and into the heart of a country cracking under the strain of the devastating ongoing conflicts we drive them but. it's. it's it's i mean these. are these vehicles packed with life saving medical supplies but it's not just aid that's regularly making its way to syria with the number of british fighters in
2:23 pm
syria now estimated to be nearing four hundred and with the recent revelations that a suicide bombing in a letter pace is thought to have been carried out by a british man he'd been part of an aid convoy. and the convoys the coming under increasing squeezing a lot of the need there's some concern about. which smith will see the big bang bang theory a simple fix what time they go to military base makes it very clear today's participated in the tracks and the decision to place but. yes you're right it's bad government to have this but so are we supporting them to secure our country at the close of the war because we are i think. without any. terrorist type of defense we are completely i guess that's what we can hope for that everyone would have joined our cause for you it's your father to be its purity

2:27 pm
protests of around a few hundred are up today after the sentencing of eight protesters who were convicted of instigating riots on russia's famous below square around a year ago this incident might basically any incident russia is being blown completely out of. proportion oh how could bush be so intolerant well the thing that people don't realize is that any sane government doesn't tolerate riots in fact according to the guardian two young men in chester england were sentenced to four years in prison that's equal to or less than a sense than the russian writers got for just attempting to start a riot the police were actually monitoring the facebook group when they were planning their public chaos and arrested them before they could even throw one brick if the british government let these guys are just anyone go on a rampage in the country would fall apart and is the job of governments above all else to create order and if they completely tolerate mass riots in some country like say china could bribe immigrants and london who hate the british locals to run the country into the dark with anarchy yet at first it sounds bad that these people in russia in england have to sit in jail because of violent protests but in reality any government that wants to not be overthrown would have to do the same but that's
2:28 pm
just my opinion. 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 agree seem change and care is left ukraine with a central government of dubious legitimacy an economy in freefall and fueled secession is sentiments russia has made it clear it will protect ethnic russians
2:29 pm
and russian speakers in ukraine washington warns moscow on the cost of doing so it would appear putin has called obama's bluff. to 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 marx for boulder he is a senior lecturer and researcher at moscow state university right gentlemen cross-talk 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 not invaded ukraine russia has the parliament in moscow the upper house passed
2:30 pm
a which said that mr putin is also realized to send troops into the ukraine to help stabilize the situation there is basically there is a threat to russian citizens and russian interests now that is not an invasion it is it 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 the reason the ukrainian state is that russia continues to recognize it is russia's start recognizing the ukraine and its present borders it would very rapidly fall apart ok 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 having. my head replayed back to like nine hundred
2:31 pm
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 it's a shame they had a sort of memory yes a good mark if i am going to get and let's talk about facts here ok one of the things i find extraordinary looking at western media is that there's not
2:32 pm
a specific mention that there are russian troops already in the country in ukraine under treaty agreement and you know in and they're saying that you know there are a threat to the sovereignty of ukraine which in fact ukrainian government before the situation in can have. loud the russians to be there and in the russians actually paid to be there before so 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 treaty signed between. the legitimate government of the ukraine and the russian federation so. these
2:33 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 the government of the thora 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
2:34 pm
doesn't like to use the term right to protect and the west loves to use that you 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 essentially 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 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
2:35 pm
national interests and its citizens who are in the ukraine now russia has not moved 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 the head of 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 we're really doesn't
2:36 pm
like is when other countries resist it's doing so and for it to talk to people to talk about nineteenth century behavior in this in this situation it is again to turn reality it seems to me entirely on its head ok in a voice of the me to 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
2:37 pm
what i'm hearing that the whole notion of there will be cost of intervention as i 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 of the united states has in ukraine is that once crimea but that seems like the only place that 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
2:38 pm
ukraine is to separate it from russia and this is operating under what is actually 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
2:39 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 of western western military intervention in the ukraine mr brown the talked about costs the only cost you could come up with was basically ending russia's membership of the g eight so that is a western direction through the world economy that has well past its sell by date idea the anybody in russia was very impressed by that mr putin actually didn't even
2:40 pm
go to the first g eight summit. after he was a reelected president so they can try a few financial sanctions but ultimately they need to talk to the russians they can't avoid doing that whatever they're already going to justin here's 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 our team. we've only seen. in two thousand and one of the first things released by wiki leaks was a secret video recording that actually looked like a video going showing through america actually clicked copters opening fire of
2:41 pm
a dozen people in iraq and this is going to institute a society images of violence become normal this is what the sense of isolation lack of employment. we try and experience to. disassociate our. inviting action from table we. i would say from certain kinds of. i absolutely am frightened of the potential games desensitize people you know they can because the military uses games missions as. cold war it is not simply put it is chilling and chilling. exacts a penalty of the killer. people for whom it is defined by popular media that.
2:42 pm
old. technology innovation all the news developments from from around russia we've gone to the future covered. they look like bounty yards. where the locals can enjoy the sun and the ocean. but what was buried here years ago. means these people are suffering the consequences. how much more poison lies on the this ground. behind this still is when there is what we call the callet bank on which there is a because it alters the code you're left by security test which caused the
2:43 pm
explosion of radionuclides despite your the screening efforts there remains the don't hold it i just a little less than to tell you is that it was only when your stuck in iraq thought out all the coral reef and over south of i ten meters down nuclear tests a never ending legacy on aussie. the wheel caught on the roadside just a car skidded at breakneck speed and fell into a ditch and i was thrown out of the car shows like a broken dome it wasn't a single hold piece left doesn't i thought if i lived and had a chance to start my life from scratch with it i would start making goals to help children who didn't go right after he was born the baby was all in casts. his legs are getting bigger and the ortho says get too small so we have to order new ones said lorna has raise money for us she helps us to get a leg braces five years after my potentially fatal injuries in
2:44 pm
a car crash i gave birth to my little niece says i think she's my reward for helping all those children who is selling the dogs to buy life for the children. to leave the least one. isn't. welcome to cross talk where all things are considered i'm peter lavelle to remind you we're discussing the recent events in ukraine. in the boys and i go back to you in washington marcus started on the first part of 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
2:45 pm
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 did 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 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 there openly argued that the war in kosovo war
2:46 pm
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 which here it 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 these. it 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 their ultimate prize is moscow and we've seen this before time and again from other would be conquerors in europe and honestly if the u.s. 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 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
2:47 pm
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 putsch this was the united states backing a. front of peaceful democratic protests whose core and vanguard was a 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 western governments hoped to play a cynical game of riding the tiger of this ultra nationalist violence into power
2:48 pm
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 protests sort of rallies i would say in eastern and southern ukraine and they're carrying a russian flag and they're carrying placards saying i'm russian and it's very interesting to me because it looks like the european union gets left with the ugly
2:49 pm
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 to talk frankly i mean if we go back a few months when mr young to go 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 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
2:50 pm
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 hadn't it they're constantly trying to play these intricate 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 ask themselves what is this right or was this wrong and you know just one billion dollars boy and you said that mr putin isn't bluffing one of the problems
2:51 pm
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 in the eastern 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 it keeps 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 that 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 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
2:52 pm
e.u. is very concisely and precisely expressed in newlands phone conversation and i think that's a 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 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
2:53 pm
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 the ukraine and in the former soviet union 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
2:54 pm
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 putsch regime that has seized power in kiev and when you have this regime. as 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 revoking the rights of russian speakers and the majority of daily communication in the ukraine across the country whether in the internet
2:55 pm
whether in literature or 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 of tried to do that these right wing factions these extreme nationalists and neo nazis that are right now sitting in positions of power in marty 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 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
2:56 pm
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 have run out of time many thanks to my guest today in washington in london and in moscow and thanks to our viewers for watching us here at r.t. see you next time and remember cross titles.

3:03 pm
. meanwhile it seems support within the military off in your thirty's in kiev is declining even in western parts of the country there are reports that several special force brigades have refused to fulfill your orders to march on the crimea here on the peninsula most of the local military bases in arsenals are now under the complete control of local authorities those servicemen who refused to pledge their allegiance to the autonomous republic of crimea of either a left or a resigned all together now currently all of the strategic facilities like airports government buildings even the streets of cities are patrolled by self-defense squads and basically local authorities are currently building their own independent defense ministry and navy while kiev has been drafting reserve servicemen to. their military forces but so far only around one point five percent of these
3:04 pm
reserves showed up. and anti-government sentiment is swelling in the east of the country thousands are running against ukraine's interim authorities in the cities of the nets and with protesters taking control of local administration buildings in both cities. of the biggest city in the east of the country. well we have reports now of several hundred men nonviolently seized the local administration building in the city of donetsk the huge industrial sound in the east of the country and all these activists have the local administration under control and they demand that the governor which was appointed early out during the weekend by one of the only guards of the east of ukraine minister. for him to be sacked and you government to be appointed so now they're controlling the administration building and according to unconfirmed reports the local council of donetsk has voted to hold a referendum on the fate of the whole region not done by us which is the east of
3:05 pm
ukraine also we know that in the port city of odessa in the south of ukraine at least two thousand people are now protesting against his will as well they are among the demands is the new governor as well the complete reform of the judicial system as well as something new they have demanded today that these so-called rights the hardline nationalist core of the protest in kiev to be banned the situation now in hiding of the biggest city in the east of ukraine is calm but some forty eight hours ago it played witness to a huge disturbance at the central square when a pro russian activist clashed with the so-called during my down activists who were sort of consoling the local administration and i tell you more about that in my report just when the self-proclaimed leaders in kenya of thought they had control of the country. thousands took to the streets of some of the largest cities including on saturday and the willing to be governed by the new authority in the capital. i want my kids to live in peace with all our other neighbors both
3:06 pm
ukrainian and russian. in which only i'd of been watching how they're attacking our guys of mode of cocktails and fireworks some have had their hands blown up who knowns that who have been legal as they fail to throw their greenness at our sons we don't want such a country we want our country to be peaceful we used to work and pay taxes to the state. what started as a peaceful rally turned violent when grow russian activists clashed with those linked to the authorities in kiev with tear gas reportedly used as well as rocks and sticks more than one hundred were injured as protesters managed to gain control of the demonstration building and even replace a ukrainian flag with a russian one before saturday the administration of the heart of region building was protected by the so-called self defense of my down now it is secured by the police forces and there are still great deal of uncertainty as to who actually
3:07 pm
holds the power here other cities in the east and southeast i guess of the need to give it a bit of glue guns also show their distrust that the new government with clear goals to hold a referendum on the region's fate which probably means a separation from t.v. rule. banding the pension reform the election of the governor judicial reform and the election of judges who forgotten with justice really means in case no claims are ignored there must be local river and them's according to the internationally recognized right to self-determination. when it comes to ideology in the east and the south in the crimea where millions of ethnic russians and that's where millions of russians can ukrainians reside and of course they're very proud of their russian heritage and the people in here who are now calling the shots they've made it very clear from day one that they have an extremely hostile
3:08 pm
attitude towards russia and they batted our house they backed it up first of all they repealed the russian. law allowing russians to be an official language in ukraine they haven't done anything to stop the destruction of russian monuments having made their voice heard protesters against gives new political establishment left the squares of the cities but said unless they're listened to next sunday they might start taking this. ijaz into their own hands let's see russia ski artsy reporting from high school in ukraine. russia's foreign ministers responded strongly to criticism of moscow's policies on ukraine he was speaking about the crisis at the un human rights council in geneva what is it in english to tell us more. russian foreign minister has come down hard on critics of russia's actions particularly reminding the western leaders about the fact that they have supported the opposition in ukraine during the days of protest at the end of last year and
3:09 pm
beginning of this year and thereby a sensibly contributing to the crisis of ukraine because there is support for the opposition essentially gave way to the radical extremists who have permeated all branches of the current stuff to claim government in ukraine thereby contributing to mayhem that is happening in the country at the moment here's more from the russian foreign minister. should those who try to interpret the situation aggressively threaten us with sanctions and boycotts those same western partners of ours that repeatedly insistently encourage the political powers that were close to them to put food in ultimatum and to refuse dialogue to ignore the concerns of the south and east of ukraine and ultimately to polarize ukrainian society we are calling on everyone to approach the situation responsibly to put aside geo political calculations and make the interests of the ukrainian people the top priority serbia level has also us this is an opportunity to remind the western
3:10 pm
officials about the agreement that was signed between the ukrainian president and the opposition leaders on february twenty first with some of the western four and foreign ministers being grantors of that signing however none of the points of the agreement have been fulfilled by the opposition and yet we haven't heard a single word of criticism from the west also sergei lavrov has reminded that the potential military action which russia's upper house of parliament has voted for on saturday is actually directed towards saving the lives of russian nationals who could be in danger in ukraine and it is important to remember that that military action could only be undertaken if the president decides to do so however he hasn't said the last word. yet and yet we have not seen the end of criticism towards russia starting with threats to cut off all ties and ending with potential sanctions against moscow russia's defense minister has denied reports that its
3:11 pm
black sea fleet has presented an ultimatum to ukrainian troops stationed in crimea ordering them to surrender by early tuesday morning when the reports of the ultimatum came from kiev but were not confirmed by any concrete sources russia's foreign ministry earlier issued a statement insisting the black sea fleet is not interfering in ukraine's internal affairs despite having not made a decision yet on whether to send troops to crimea moscow's come under fire from western leaders washington pulled no punches as president obama made it clear russia is facing political and economic isolation and antiwar activists brumback and says the u.s. is not in the position to tell moscow what to do given washington support for the revolution i actually expected a booming voice to come out at the end and say the empire has spoken president putin and all other political leaders within earshot genuflecting do is instructed on on the ukrainian for president obama to say it would be a profound interference in ukraine's internal affairs for russia to do anything in
3:12 pm
the crimea is so hypocritical when you think that the united states and the e.u. leaders particularly germany have interfered over and over and over again into the internal affairs of the ukraine just because the west using so many fascist and fascist forces in kiev could overthrow the elected government there's now and there's not now give the west the rate to tell russia that they have no rights in the crimea when by force of war which the treaty is the russians clearly have rights and responsibilities in the crimea especially since it hosts they're unable base now it shows that the law is on the side of russia right now international or . western states have repeatedly backed the self-appointed rulers in kiev who lasted president unico which but the mayor of the estonian capital tallinn has voiced serious concerns over the legitimacy of the new ukrainian government as it was brought to power by radical groups he believes those current in charge of
3:13 pm
a country incapable of resoldering this resolving this crisis or any other issue of state or the e.u.'s foreign affairs council doesn't hold the same opinion as tannins mayor it's calling on europe to help the self appointed government in kiev and joined in the denunciation of russia's actions will test a silly has more for us now. the aim of the meeting today of the foreign ministers was really to find a common ground or joint position in the engaging or dealing and responding to russia so this is a statement that they had agreed upon the strongly condemn the clear violation of ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity by russia's act of aggression and they said that russia broke international obligations and they called on russia to withdraw and retreat that the troops back into the barracks and threaten potential sanctions basically such as the targeted suspension of bilateral agreements possibly of these negotiations which have been going on since two thousand and seven but no actual sanctions today but the possibility they say if deescalation
3:14 pm
doesn't happen in the crimea now before going into this meeting today there was wide expectation that the e.u. is a response actually would not it would be slightly muted compared to what the u.s. had said over the weekend we had the american secretary of state john kerry having said that russian president vladimir putin might find himself with a frozen asset freezes and washington was also encouraging and threatening the kicking out of russia from the g. eight group of world leading economies and this is an idea that germany really have been opposed to at the german foreign minister had said that the g. eight platform is actually a way for the west to be speaking directly with russia he question whether it's actually a good idea to get rid of this platform all together now this kind of measured if you will analysis of what's going on is also reflected in in some of the german press analysis media analysis here in germany and also the belgian
3:15 pm
a foreign minister had also want against any hawkish actions against russia but that is one count in the e.u. the other camp with the likes of the swedish foreign minister or those are from the ex soviet satellites wanted harsher sanctions so today was actually trying to find that e.u. common. now in terms of russia's reaction to this to this accusation of aggression the foreign minister sergei lavrov accused the west of putting its own geo political calculations at the feet of ukraine's but in fact sergei lavrov is meeting with the foreign policy chief catherine ashton on tuesday and the e.u. had called for an extraordinary e.u. council meeting on thursday this week to sit in there and go to newspaper columnist john steele says john kerry should not aim his criticism at moscow but at the extremists who took power in kenya they're getting themselves out on a limb by making these very threatening noises about expelling russia from the g.

eight and sanctions and financial penalties and so on and naming people who won't be allowed to travel to the west i mean you know russia is an important world power the west needs it to help with is finding a solution to the iranian nuclear issue on the syrian civil war we need russia so to try and you know shut russia out is just absurd you know in international relations there are differences between countries you don't just boycott them if you russia is not some tiny country you can just push into the corner forget about i'm going to merkel spokesperson a day or so ago saying that the new earth orbit you should be very careful not to allow too much strength of the right wing forces the so-called right sector but unfortunately you know one of the people from one of the right wing parties is now the defense and national security minister in in the new government it's not encouraging that's what kerry should be talking about not just criticizing russia
