7:00 am
writers envoy to un lashes out at american mainstream media for turning a blind eye to evidence suggesting ukraine's new coalition hired snipers. script which created quite a stir russian on some european media was computer. russia calls on the un to launch a probe into the mine down killings or. was caught in the firing line their. village that was two minutes away from being shot dead. and here chatzky recalls what he witnessed during the violence in the ukrainian capital. and also a surprising vision of the world from ukraine's new prime minister he tells a gathering in brussels that iran already has nuclear weapons and. on the ground three russian tanks. russian tanks have never crossed the border but
7:01 am
mystery gets a nukes outlandish statements seem to go unnoticed or are glossed over in the western media. and mosque you're watching our national was we were in a joshua welcome to the program well after a voting it down a muslim to join russia crimean lawmakers are now in moscow to discuss the move was members of the russian parliament let's get all the latest from our correspondent marina across the river. details what has come out of that meeting. well the russian parliament has pledged its support and has vowed to back the free and democratic choice of the population of crimea and its of a stop at the upcoming referendum on march the sixteenth where the people there will be faced with two questions whether they want to become part of russia or
7:02 am
whether they want to restore crimea as nine hundred ninety two constitution which would mean that it's an autonomous republic parts of ukraine but the relations with care would be based on mutual agreements and also crimea as problems has already voted in favor of joining russia and crimea as prime minister has said that their votes in fact reflects the decisions of what the public there wants now the speaker of the upper house of the russian parliament has outlined what crimean can expect if they choose to do with russia. if that decision is made crimea will have the same rights as all other subjects of the russian federation and as you know russian regions have much greater autonomy than those of you queen for example and of course the people of crimea will have the same social benefits pensions and salaries as the rest of russia. and it's also important to mention the violence in the emphasize that international observers would be invited to monitor the referendum and if again they choose to go with russia that this would this transition would not happen immediately it would be
7:03 am
a thorough process that would be in line with russia's laws and constitution. i think is a much for bringing us the cost of their out of fishes in crimea are saying people there are worried over extremists gaining more influence in ukraine well here's how one dabney governor from another ukrainian region loyal to the new leadership is planning to handle the crimean issue and that's actually a quote from his facebook page were he's openly saying those who are not supporting the new coalition will have to be hanged. and russia's u.n. envoy has slammed the u.s. mainstream media for ignoring the staggering leak which revealed it was ukraine's former opposition who allegedly ordered the shooting online don let's recall what the public learned from that leaked phone conversation between two between the two of the top officials well first the study of foreign minister over most pirates
7:04 am
tells that catherine ashton that he was most likely somebody from ukraine's new leadership and not the old ministration who hire the snipers second mr piatt says he has seen evidence that the very same snipers target a both at riders and police and finally he expresses deep concern that the self-proclaimed government is reluctant to investigate the shooting expanse of those revelations to be again changer but they've received very little attention from western politicians and media outlets russia's ambassador to the un would tell you jurgen highlighted the issue unfortunately that transcript which created quite a stir in russian on some european media was completely ignored by the mainstream american media and as to who was the source of sniper fire you may have seen the footage on the internet we have seen it on television there were clearly opposition snipers who took over a hotel in downtown in downtown. who were working
7:05 am
a snipers shooting on somebody in the streets so now it's obvious that they were the ones who are killing both the policemen and those who are protesting in order to exploit even further protest and take power by force to execute this school. in ukraine. while the russian envoy has also urged the u.n. to push for an investigation into the shootings in kiev and r.t. crew actually came under sniper fire there as well while he was covering events that had a narrow escape and he recalls now that day and how the bloodshed unraveled on the streets of kiev. it's so good now being without a bulletproof vest because i had to wear it for literally two weeks there let me just give you the idea how my morning february the twentieth on thursday started i came to do a live shot in front of the great hotel and things started to unravel right where i was standing you can see. a grenade going off it was just one minute before supposed to go live and then at some point these people were literally covering
7:06 am
everything around me i mean clearly these are the protesters from the my down but i had to withdraw because i really knew what they didn't know what the intentions were and besides they were grenades thrown from the outside by the police so this was quite scary in the first place then i went inside the hotel and had to do another live shot and i'll we can see it on that video i was getting ready i was actually already talking on the phone with the with the studio in moscow when a bullet came through the window over there where i was supposed to stand in two minutes so literally i was two minutes away from being shot dead and see the bullet hole that went through the window into the wall and ricocheted it over there these are the parts of the bullet which are left on the wall. so literally two minutes after that i went on air. from a safer position and these were my first words when i came in just to give you an idea of what's happening right now i would probably love to give you a better view of the independence square which is just over here but we were just short we just saw a gunfire it literally broke our window over here you could see i asked my camera
7:07 am
to zoom in we were standing meters not even meters maybe same to be just the way the evening we found the bullet seven sixty two kalashnikov one of our rooms and one of our colleagues our camera system and then you and use of had his bulletproof vest scratched graved by a bullet from a window i'll just give you some of my videos which i shot with my phone on the ground when the assault happened. this was touted as the area which was completely shot at this is the place where the sniper fire you can see a person there he's filming he's a tourist is not a press he doesn't have a book with us was filming the retreat of the policeman on that balcony over there this is the police line that's where they are. it was supposed to coming from what you see no one is firing the person just walking down the street we the press me myself we're standing over here. this is five minutes later one bullet started whistling you can see these people over here these are the ones we all know what happened to them they were all killed or fatally wounded they had no weapons on the shields and they went to the police lines over there in this one and there's two
7:08 am
and now there'll be a very peculiar moment please stop directed to stop so this is one of the protesters one of the rioters running with a gun with a rifle in his hand so the question i am still struggling to answer is how come these people with no weapons when they're these guys running away in five minutes or seven minutes after that the first dead body and he's already dead i mean he was still alive but he was dead in a matter of minutes i know that because i saw him die he was carried inside the lobby of the hotel the biggest question right now i still don't understand who made those people weaponless people go in to the police lines when people with guns were running away from their. well meanwhile our team has come under fire from many major news outlets and here is why well yesterday i was standing right here telling you about crimea's options as it's about to decide on the top of me from ukraine but we were accused of already showing crimea as part of russia must have taken
7:09 am
a great deal of afeard to take that particular screenshot instead of an actual broader one well meanwhile brussels was rolling out the red carpet for ukraine's new prime minister and his speech featured some off the wall statements he said russian tanks were on the ground in crimea and then came up with another surprising claim stating that iran already has nuclear arms however many media outlets chose to ignore that and here's our. was more on this and other underreported happenings . people who took power in kiev now have all propaganda resources of the western media at their disposal. they chose to ignore the leaked conversation in which two european leaders talk about evidence that might only leaders may have ordered the snipers to shoot at people so that series i was stronger and stronger understanding that behind snipers they were
7:10 am
it was not going to call rich but it was somebody from the new coalition c.n.n. had material on their website which started with this phrase don't we too much into this conversation not only do they skip what's uncomfortable for the guy they're rooting for. they apparently sometimes edit whatever unrelieved stuff he may be staying ukraine's interim prime minister arseniy yatsenyuk at a news conference several times mentions russian troops and russian tanks on the ground in ukraine and in their repulsed the friendly media never mentions the tanks . maybe because nobody has seen tanks there and maybe because they don't want to make him look stupid for making unverified claims like that. in this cheering campaign for ukrainian revolution the media here have left out a lot of what was happening in ukraine reports like this this is a governor in a western part of ukraine who tried to calm down a waging mob over rioters he was severely beaten and handcuffed to
7:11 am
a protest stage. generally there's not much questioning about what's happening with people in the western part of ukraine who are opposed to what happened in key of the u.s. presence the revolution there is a triumph of democracy when people have not had their say yet. on the other hand there's a media frenzy of to discredit the upcoming referendum in crimea we're going to see it intensify because those are the voices that they don't want to hear that proposed referendum would violate the constitution of ukraine and international law as you imagine in this chorus of russia hating western media our channel is attacked left and right for being aware voiced to offer a different perspective and this is one of the latest pinches that we received crimea is set to decide whether to become part of russia russian t.v. today showed ukraine as if it was already part of the family except on this map on
7:12 am
the map of ukraine we highlighted in blue the part of ukraine that is pro russian that's all and it's not clear how this map supports b.b.c.'s claims that that russia has annexed crimea according to all. twitter went crazy with some of the claims they showed this photo with quietly as part of how to flush it when in fact it was part of the bankers the anchor talking about different options for events unfolding is locals will have to choose between two options and wine is to stay part of ukraine and the other is to become part of russia as you can see when you tear something out of context you get a completely different picture another way of saying it do not rely on just one source of information in washington i'm going to shake up our team. well european leaders have decided to suspend visa negotiations with moscow as well
7:13 am
as preparations for the upcoming g eight summit which despite the harsh rhetoric the e.u. refrain from tougher economic sanctions which is understandable the idea of travel bans which was floated by madrid would certainly horror of the tourist industry and travelers from russia spend over two billion euros a year in spain adding potential trade restrictions would also injure the wider european economy france for example doesn't want to miss out on a one billion euro deal to supply russia with two mistral warships as for germany forty percent of its oil and gas comes from russia out while the e.u. as a whole relies on moscow for a third of its natural gas supply now economic relations expert reiner lender to list moscow and brussels need stable economic ties. from the german business perspective we need of course what we call stability in the trade relations germany and russia relations of about seventy five billion euros last year i think this is
7:14 am
going to be happen this year as well so we're not in favor of any sanctions what we see now from the bustle summit is that some sanctions or at least the negotiations are suspended for the reason liberalization that again hits people actually most and that's why i think we need to come back to a diplomatic. negotiations to solve the problems to solve the crisis with russia and ukraine and coming up in just a few minutes corporations weigh in on scotland in the panels debate. the hand of oil giant shell along with big financial companies warned that scott's going it alone will be bad for business. i always just look at athletes as obsolete sas elites as people and east true to say that to many many paralympians of over come what may be viewed is barriers
7:15 am
whether that it's physical or psychological or i don't know what to do with integration into society one thing about paralympians is their fight is you fight very very hard for what they believe in to what their rights are what their freedom should be. a very serious. now life.
7:16 am
welcome back you're watching r.t. international and a big corporations have one after another spoken out against scottish independence lloyds and barclays banks have been joined by the c.e.o. of oil giant shell and says he would like scotland to remain part of the u.k. artie's lawrence mass has more. the oil giant has come down firmly on the side of the no camp say would prefer scotland to remain in the u.k. because independence carries risks and uncertainties interestingly the chairman of shell u.k. originally said the company wouldn't be weighed in on the debate and it's a matter for the school to decide but the c.e.o. has written that to create this. business and politics i spoke to mcleod he is pro independence there any closer you get things that the shell bowls has a point because business loves stability right i don't think that an independent scotland
7:17 am
is going to create the most instability he said we are not ready to use everyone's entitled to an opinion but i think what. we would like to speed is part of. which some of the major party sweden in the you are actually. two we. are sort of. in the e.u. an independent scotland would be better and more share in i think they should be mainly a political question but i. think there's no use to express their bodies and i read degree that. business you should have here that when you look websites like becker together they are sort of comedy. which stupid. things actually actually and so the war of words continues project as it's been
7:18 am
dubbed by the s.n.p. and it will only intensify as september's referendum draws near. a line for you right now at the olympics mutual help as met with applause but some are forced to pay a high price for aiding a rival once the games are over head to our data call for the details on how a german bobsled pilot's good intentions are being punished. also they're going to mysterious creator is allegedly on mass for more details of the elusive person who might have invented the digital currency log on to our website. right from the scene. of. the first street view and i think the true. on our reporters twitter. and instagram.
7:19 am
could be in the know. on mom. to a friend's brother. and. his train wish you. could add a show to the that she could unite people with. let alone a lot of we had a very trusting relationship here's a chief but a chief one of this kind who communicates who wants to know the truth. and i could not imagine that the president could communicate like this before i became a president announced or like a brother like a father. i'm
7:20 am
sure that if that this moment i got struck by lightning. that there are many leaders of the revolutionary. variant that can continue this process of. welcome back you're watching r t international in just a few hours time the olympic flame is about to eliminate the black seacoast once again marking the start of the eleventh winter paralympic games our very own lindsey friends gives a first hand reports of the action. well the winter games are indeed a tough act to follow but these paralympians have displayed a strength of character and an all athletic prowess that prove they can shine just
7:21 am
as brightly now the winter paralympic games themselves are relatively young they only began back in one thousand nine hundred seventy six but since then they've gone from strength to strength always expanding this year we welcome three new nations there's a new sport snowboarding and the ranks of athletes have swollen quite a bit over a thousand the home team itself is up to nearly two hundred we spent some time with two of them who told us about the barriers they plan to break after the opening ceremonies kick off. since team russia success the pressure is on for the paralympic team to keep that momentum going it's a fact that its athletes can ski and shoot their way to the gold and silver medals coming second in the medals ranking in vancouver two thousand and ten but there are some changes since then for example paris snowboarding is taking the stage at soccer and russia serafin is a guy who wouldn't let
7:22 am
a leg amputation stop him from doing what he. feels it's my favorite sport i was snowboarding long before snowboarding and long before it was even declared a sports of the so for me it's amazing that snowboarding has become an olympic sport it's very important actually. while he's tackling the slopes team russia is also making it a first on the ice the nation sledge hockey team will also be making a debut with the games with most every player thinks only about the victory how to grab it and never let it go this is important the team captain vadim so you can lost both legs while serving in the military in chechnya and that was in two thousand and two the rink is now his battlefield and he's already led his team to third place in the recent world championships just here almost every day at this training base. morning till night training marking counted to the world sled hockey challenge this year we played against the teams of canada in the u.s. they're very skilled athletes we still can do their experience especially in the
7:23 am
little things we're trying very hard with the new ones while the importance of the paralympics has grown in russia so has the awareness of access for people with impaired mobility and everyday life such itself underwent to transform ation and plans are in place to make that a nationwide norm it's something that the russian paralympic team is set out to prove along with its medal. the athletes are agents for change not only in their communities but in the wider world as representatives of the game and that is certainly true here in russia now focusing on the home team in vancouver two thousand and ten they were ranked second in the medal standing with thirty eight we're talking ten gold sixteen silvers and ten bronze now in order to break the record as most successful host of the paralympic games they've got to take seventy one it's going to be a lot of work we'll see if they can do it. now is
7:24 am
a look at some other stories from around the world on you tube may soon be outlawed in turkey the country's prime minister is accusing his political rivals of posting forged audio clips online in applauds to wreck his government ahead of upcoming local elections and the latest recording rishabh type area won is allegedly heard suggesting to journalists should be fired anchor our recently tightened control of the internet on the pretext of the fanning privacy a move that was met with fierce public opposition. five people have been killed and eight others wounded when a motorcycle bomb went off in a crowded market in the southern afghan region of marjah no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack but the rest of area is now is known for a have the presence of taliban insurgents although driven back by the u.s. in two thousand and ten the taliban have slowly returned to the area with locals claiming almost eighty percent of helmand province is under the group's control.
7:25 am
protests have broken out in the disputed area of kashmir in support of dozens of muslim students expelled from the air university after cheering for the pakistani cricket team during a recent match against india they could possibly face life imprisonment over its addition charges but the indian state's leader has called for leniency pakistan's government has expressed support for the students argue they are being discriminated against by indian authorities. a soldier and a motorcyclist have been killed in venezuela after opposition protesters blocked the street in the capital caracas they were reportedly trying to clear a barricade when residents of nearby buildings heard rocks and fired shots at them troops used tear gas to disperse the crowd this brings the number of those killed in your month long anti-government protests to twenty. and up
7:26 am
next sophie shevardnadze talks to the head of the international paralympics committee as a winter games are about to kick off in sochi. u.s. army specialist albert tell you the third is accused of running a scam in which he helped an afghan trucking company steal huge amounts of fuel by cooking the army books and making it seem as though the fuel had been used when in reality it was diverted they accuse kelly how to make it into a twenty five thousand gallons of fuel vanish into a bureaucratic black hole and four dollars a gallon that is a lot of cash obviously this is wrong but in comparison to the profiteering made off of the war it is a joke that this guy is even going to jail think about the trillions of dollars spent on the post nine eleven wars of luxury tons of big companies have all gotten huge pieces of the burger pie like raytheon with their missiles lockheed martin with their jets and malibu and blackwater and so on and so on hey when all these
7:27 am
big companies milk the system with big contracts during war why should the average grunt take part in alluding to what reason does this kelly guy have to not also try to make a buck off the war it seems like in the world there are people who are often punished not because they steal but because they still far too little while not wearing nice suits but that's just my opinion. that this comes from the heart you know i've never even seen him in person for me
7:28 am
this is the image of a hero the world's first coast but if you stay put. few people ever. was yuri gagarin's iconic first spaceflights the product of good fortune or destiny. was constantly fail to learn strictly he could see the grounds the school they started throwing punches at it what it there was a turning point. going to. look like bounty yard. where the locals can enjoy the song the ocean. but what was buried here years ago. means these people are suffering the consequences.
7:29 am
how much more poison lies on the this ground. behind this there is what we call the collect bank on which there is a because it alters the code left by security test which caused the explosion of radionuclides despite what should be speeding up but there remains the don't hold it at least a little less than two of the laws of the sodium in your stomach is iraq going down to the coral reef it's out of the last ten meters down nuclear tests a never ending legacy on r.t. . the welcome to sophie and coming sophie shevardnadze two thousand and fourteen paralympic winter games are underway in sochi this morning festivities are grabbing on president his attention with massive media coverage and record ticket sales or
7:30 am
who better to talk to about the challenges and successes of these games than. sir philip craven president of the international olympic committee. when the impossible becomes possible a victory against. the drug the strength the success but. once again. to breed the paralympics what does it take to become a paralympic medalist how did the movement gain its momentum. to be done. craven president of the international paralympic committee it's really great to have you on the program today so obviously the world's attention is right now fixed on ukraine and we're seeing the lists of countries already courting the problem fix what are your feelings to feel like it's an appropriate thing to do in this context
7:31 am
mixing politics and sports but especially when it has to do with paralympics. i've heard you were. not aware of any country boycotting the games at the moment. and i think my philosophy is that sports and politics should not mix and normally do not mix and therefore the aipcs position very much is that we here in conjunction with the so she twenty fourteen organizing committee to organize one of the best paralympic winter games ever i mean it was there was so much skepticism before the olympics started in sochi whether everything was going to be built everything was going to be ready or not and then what now you are in sochi are you satisfied with how well organized the games are i was both here in the coastal cluster of course up in open rules. of course in the city of sochi. which is a heck of
7:32 am
a long city hundred forty kilometers. very very pleased with the incredible work that's been doing in the last few years to really transform really piece of waste into into the coastal cluster in the olympic and paralympic park and then when you go up the valley and see what's been installed there and then you get to pollyanna and then move up the mountain it's just quite amazing but when you said you were in sochi as well do you feel like the city is well adapted for the needs of paralympians. well i do of course baria free environments are not created overnight and especially when you're dealing with a city that's been already founded tens if not hundreds of years ago and therefore things take time but the progress that has been made so far i think he's quite remarkable and i think also the fact that the so she twenty fourteen organizing committee is used as the basis for accessibility in full body free environment the
7:33 am
i.p.c. accessibility guided to national paralympic committee accessibility guide we're very happy with that we know it's a very high standard and as you move around the park and in the mountains you do see what works been doing so this year there will be only five competitions during one of the sports you would like to see at it's in the future but i think first of all you say only five but we've got very major sports if you look at slide chalky you look at wheelchair curling both of which are in the coastal cluster and then looking to the mountains alpine skiing cross-country skiing biathlon and now of course for the first time ever thanks to support from russia we have two events in in paris no boarding so we have we're very pleased that there's been an addition here of paris snowboarding and indeed we are looking forward. to twenty twenty two
7:34 am
it will be in twenty eight teen to the possibility of maybe one or two new sports but what sports would they be which one are you looking forward to seeing. well way we haven't decided yet we haven't decided yet but we've got discussions that are ongoing with several international federations and of course the announcement on the sports program for twenty twenty two when you think that the location of twenty twenty two has not yet been decided yet will will be in a couple of years' time but we are working very closely in international federations for winter sports so we're working very closely with the i.p.c. and the very keen to get their sports in the paralympic winter games that's are currently paralympics in london there are a huge success how are you trying to maintain this momentum and such. but i
7:35 am
think what we're obviously first of all doing is to is to ensure the facilities for the athletes the best they can possibly be if you think of what does an athlete require when they're competing well they require good accommodation good food. good training facilities and the very best competition facilities we have all of those here and i think the olympics proved that the transport system works the transport system is the lifeblood of any games and so we go tremendous facilities here as we had in london as i'm sure we will have in rio in twenty sixteen and then looking forward to. the next paralympic winter games in twenty eight teen and then of course tokyo in twenty twenty so it's it is to maintain the momentum you're absolutely right that first of all ensure that the athletes are very well catered for then they'll perform at their very best but then
7:36 am
if we lose two to broadcasting they'll be more broadcasting than ever here in from from so she from these games going to games and this will just increase as we move forward into the future since you're talking about catering. what are the biggest problems usually face in their preparation for the next. well it's definitely not catering to their own problems that's what i'm saying and therefore to have everything so well presented and so well organized here particularly in the areas which really affect the athletes and the teams and i said to you that's accommodation in the villages that's food in the villages that's transport that's training venues that's competition venues these are all very well catered for they're very good but they're for the athletes sure to have great facilities from
7:37 am
which they will compete like they've never done before their very very best working to get the proper equipment i read about one of your competitors to chairman biathlon is northing hake will have his printed on a three d. printer to suit his needs well normally noma they would get their winter sports see equipment either from specialist manufacturers if you allude to sled g.'s for sled hockey of course for wheelchair curling you're dealing with pretty standard wheelchairs and of course pretty standard curling equipment if you then. sit skis or actual skis if if if an athlete skiing down the mountain on one ski instead of two maybe do some adaptations but these are all catered for by by the the bigger winter sports manufacturers and if it's a speciality piece of equipment then probably by a specialist smaller supplier but because he's quite well developed no of course
7:38 am
it's the athletes that push the boundaries when it comes to and push the development of new technologies and that's something that we keep a very close eye on. but is there anything different in the psychology have been a limp dick athletes compared to the paralympic athlete. nothing until we're all about sport we're all about training as hard as we can. no difference at all what is the common denominator here is not the fact that an olympic athlete is go it's got to go into good legs and two good eyes and two good whatever else and a paralympian may not have the common denominator of sport competition training and elite effort in elite performance and so it's really identical and you know you can see that from the way that the athletes council of the international paralympic committee and the athletes commission the international olympic committee get on so
7:39 am
well together and so athletes just get on paralympians olympians what's the difference in the thing for me so you would say you would say winning the most important thing as opposed to process of rehabilitation sports and competition. well it depends what level you're out i mean if your sports and physical activity are very very important in rehabilitation but if you've had for example a major accident you don't end up in the paralympic games two months later it takes a lot of time to prepare your body to prepare your mind again no difference between a paralympian or an olympian but here at the paralympic winter games you talk about elite athletes you're not talking about people who just come out of a rehabilitation process but it is a continuum sport is a great great way great vehicle for someone to find their life again after maybe what could be termed a tragedy and use sports as a vehicle and then if you really enjoy it and really good at it you could compete
7:40 am
in the paralympic winter games but that'll be several years down the road so we're going to take a short break right now sir philip craven president of the international paralympic committee. when we come back we'll talk about the challenges that still a hassle movement stay with us. guys. but you
7:41 am
don't stop inflating inflaming the situation and provoking violence these folks want to violence they don't want an election because they know if it was free and fair they would never make it into power legally this is they want by. and susan the only way they could be able to stay in power in the e.u. in washington is backing them up in nato when u.s. officials that said keep going forward guys keep sustaining your protests and even when it turned into an armed struggle they still broad pastries to the square and made on to show that the west was with them with all their vast economic and military power the e.u. and the united states and nato have the blood of those who died in downtown kiev on their hands because they build liberally provoked at. the french. mission.
7:42 am
she showed that she could unite the people. not her we had a very trusting relationship here's a chief but a chief one of his kind who communicates who wants to know the truth. and i could not imagine that the president could communicate like this before i became a president and after like a brother like a father. to me i am sure that if at this moment i got struck by lightning. there are many leaders of the revolutionary. variant that can continue this
7:43 am
process. blood investigation in the fishing industry reveals the. troubled waters of. me because. you spread all over this the most toxic food you have in the whole will bring profit if each of pushes inquiry furthermore health restriction. on the market.
7:44 am
and we're back with sir philip craven president of the international paralympic committee so obviously you have come across some amazing life stories inspiring stories your personal story as well being one of those but if you could single one out what is the most inspiring story from an athlete that you have heard or matt. that is a very difficult question because. as i've said previously i always just look at athletes as athletes safley says people. true to say the many many paralympians of overcome what may be viewed as barriers whether it's physical or psychological or i don't know what to do with integration into society one thing about paralympians
7:45 am
is they're fighters they're fighters who fight very very hard for what they believe in for what their rights are what their freedom should be so i cannot come up with the one individual story i would normally leave up to the media they come up with these stories. but i've got a very very interesting life a life which if i hadn't broken my back rock climbing when i was sixteen then i don't think my life would have been anything like as interesting as it's been so i'm not saying that my story inspires me but i just know i've had such a varied life it's about an amazing life but forget it for general public when we look at paralympians obviously we're also very interested in their personal stories what's behind they asked us something that doesn't necessarily interest us. does that fact. paralympic champion and paralympic trooper does that bother you that
7:46 am
people are also interestingly. enough to chill i think it's great and then if you want to interview me about my personal life here i am to talk to you about it but i always say that it's far better if you interview individual athletes and see what experiences they've had i'm not the person really to talk about but i'm a pretty much an expert on myself but it doesn't but it doesn't bother me whatsoever because being a sportsman and being an athlete or in my case. a former competitor as you might say. what you learn in life is so vast and so wide it's not just to do with competing even in the paralympic games winter or summer it's about learning about life you know getting a job marrying a fantastic french woman like two kids and two grandsons you know one of which is.
7:47 am
both of which are playing rugby and the big fight there is between my wife who is french and wants to play for france if they're good enough of course. i'm their father i'm their mother my daughter who probably won't want them to play for england so there we've got a going on in the family but that's life you see i mean. one thing i will say to your listeners is that. viewers is the paralympians don't worry about what does not work they just. so it's a very positive attitude to life which is something that may be brand new for your viewers now the more athletes you interview during these what will be amazing paralympic games the more your viewers will get to get to change maybe. in their perceptions and realize hey we're all just people of one world here well first of
7:48 am
all thanks for sharing that amazing story with us but for those who want to get involved. thanks how do those with disabilities actually get into sports do they have to look for a sponsor like regular is it harder for them. well i think i think when anyone starts off with sport their first thought is not looking for sponsors because what they've got to do the young child or whoever or someone who's just how the injury of some description then they have to start to enjoy sport they have to be given opportunities to seek opportunities and find them where they can try different sports and to practice the one that they enjoy most and that doesn't mean if you're i don't know if you're wall me to. become a basketball player if i don't like basketball i love basketball by the way but that's different but i wouldn't want to meet as i was about one meter eighty. but
7:49 am
you have to find a sport that you really love then you have to have the facilities in which you can go and practice that sport really at a very low level to begin with and then you have to have the pathways with which you can follow your sport and get better and better at it and just looking to russia russian paralympic committee and doing great work with other organizations who are members of the russian paralympic committee and you'll probably see that from the performances here in so she is the games unfold over the next two weeks and how do you go by classifying was illegible to not i'll tell you i'm asking because i remember back in two thousand members of the spanish basketball team they tart turned out to have faked their disabilities was an isolated event doesn't happen well that was. well that was that was a specific event where we were dealing with athletes with an intellectual
7:50 am
disability. the organization the international organization that was responsible for those sports at that time did not sufficiently robust eligibility system and therefore they were not those athletes were not permitted to compete again in the paralympic games until london twenty twelve in three sports of table tennis swimming and and athletics and so that was a specific situation going back to the first part of your question. athletes in order to compete in the paralympic games have to be eligible to do so so if that's an athlete with a visual impairment they have to be able to prove that they have a visual impairment through testing and similarly if it's a physical impairment then they have to prove that they have a permanent physical impairment and then could make it that they're eligible to compete in a specific sport. in a specific paralympic sport and then could lead to them competing in the paralympic
7:51 am
games what cheating and doping scandal has to be an impediment otherwise you. go ahead but otherwise you have to compete in the olympic games and also the cheating and doping scandals that's a huge problem for committee and i would imagine also for paralympics how big of an issue is it. well i don't see it as a major issue. doping dopping by athletes even though it's true that we have had a few positive cases over a great number of years we absolutely are of course against the use of those products in sport. of course members of all of compliant with the world anti-doping agency. list of banned substances
7:52 am
and of course also very much in favor of education programs so that athletes know it does not pay to cheat by by by doping but we do not have a major issue but we are very very much involved in ensuring that that continues to be the case so are there any athletes take part in the paralympics who have also taken part in the olympics beforehand. that is something with the winter games that . i'm not aware of and i don't have an ounce of for that i could always come back on a later program with the answer to that but has it ever been any question in summerlin . well of course it has i mean i think you're aware of that but there have been several athletes that have be that are paralympians who have then gone on to compete in the in the in the olympic games and that is restricted to a very very few number of athletes who may have the weather it could be archery it
7:53 am
could be shooting it could be double amputees enough let's fix. but it's a very very few number of athletes that could make that crossover between paralympics and the olympics now the paralympics used to provide free to the coverage but now they've and is raising money. like any other so tickets are apparently sold out why is this ashes are changing in your. well it was never our intention to to as you put it actually i wouldn't put it that way that broadcasting was free broadcasting costs money and therefore there has to be rights fees so that so that we're at least we have the cash to put on the show for television and so we have been working very very hard over a great number of years now to raise this profile and in fact to achieve rights
7:54 am
fees from many nations so that at least the costs of production can be achieved and then we were getting there now so it has been a change it's really been a development but it's always been something that we wish to do now partly because some come a long way since the fifty's and yourselves playing the president international prolific committee have been extremely successful at doing your job. what are you aiming to tackle in the final years of your presidency. that's a good question i think that we've already covered one of those things which is really to maintain the momentum of the paralympic games whether it's the summer or the winter that is that is a prime objective the second one is to continue to improve the standards of many many other international paralympic sporting events and that is something that we are achieving we had a very good. b.c. world athletics championships in france last year twenty. and also world swimming
7:55 am
championships in canada and so this is another area where we are really increasing increasing our efforts and achieving success and i want not to continue the third area is the creation and the support for far more athletes competing in paralympic sport throughout the world most of the development work he's doing through our foundation which is the foundation named after our the paralympic symbol and that is something that is really started to kick in over the last year to eighteen months and one of my really subjects moving forward really the creation of new athletes to the world of paralympic sport to many more people in many more countries is one of my most sincere ambitions. so current thank you so much for this interesting interview with all of us in all your future
7:56 am
endeavors yes sir philip craven president of the international paralympic committee we're talking about. right now also talking about challenges that lay ahead of the paralympians and how to keep up the momentum of the paralympic movement that's it for this edition of. for the next. the wheel caught on the road side to the car skidded at breakneck speed and fell into a ditch and i was thrown out of the car it was like a broken dome it wasn't
7:57 am
a single shoulder piece left as if i thought if i lift and had a chance to start my life from scratch that i would start making doles to help children it didn't become a right after he was born the baby was all in casts. his legs are getting bigger and the ortho sister get too small so we have to order new ones said lorna has raised money for us she helps us to get a leg braces five years after my potentially fatal injuries in a car crash i gave birth to my little missy i think she's my reward for helping all those children who are selling the dolls to buy life for the children.
7:58 am
was an esteemed person. it puts everything into. letting go of those identities for me is important. part of it is protecting it's somebody they would. make a brother to the dentist they really knew your story. they just. there's a need for crazy huh. to me in my name is june what's your name my name is geoffrey.
7:59 am
8:00 am
i don't understand all the world can lead to nato. say sorry. russia's and or to you and lashes out at american mainstream media for turning a blind eye to evidence suggesting it cranes new coalition hired snipers in kenya. that transcript which created quite a stir in russian and some european media was completely ignored russia calls on the un to launch a probe into the mine down killings are just like senior shafiq he was caught in the firing line there. for which i was two minutes away from being shot dead. recalls what he witnessed during the violence in ingraining capital. and also a surprising vision of the world from ukraine's new prime minister he tells a gathering in brussels that iran already has nuclear weapons and. even bush. on the ground three russian tanks. russian tanks have never crossed the border but
8:01 am
mr yeltsin oops outlandish statements seem to go unnoticed or are glad. over in the western media. what you heard here national coming to you live from moscow with memory to josh. now russia's u.n. envoy has slammed the u.s. mainstream media for ignoring the staggering the which revealed it was ukraine's former opposition who allegedly ordered the shooting on my don let's recall what the public learned from that leaked phone conversation between two of the top officials well first to the stony and foreign minister tells it catherine ashton that it was likely ukraine's new leadership and not the old ministration who hired the snipers second to mr pirate says he has seen evidence that the very same snipers targeted both riders and police and finally he expresses deep concern that
8:02 am
the former opposition is reluctant to investigate the shootings now you'd expect those revelations to be a game changer but they have received very little attention from western politicians and media outlets russia's ambassador to the un vitaly churkin highlighted the issue unfortunately that transcript which created quite a stir in russian on some european media was completely ignored by the mainstream american media and as to who was the source of sniper fire you may have seen the footage on the internet the way i've seen it on television there were clearly opposition snipers who took over a hotel in downtown in downtown. who were working as snipers shooting on somebody in the streets so now it's obvious that they were the ones who were killing both the policemen and those who are protesting in order to exploit even further protest and take power by force to execute this school. in ukraine.
8:03 am
well the russian envoy has also urged the un to push for an investigation into the shootings in kiev and our t.v. crew actually came under sniper fire bears well while it was covering events and i see a ship ski had a narrow escape he recalls now the day and how the blood should unravelled on the streets of kiev. it's so good now being without a bulletproof vest because i had to wear it for literally two weeks there let me just give you the idea how my morning february the twentieth on thursday started i came to do a live shot in front of the great hotel and things started to unravel right where i was standing you can see. a grenade going off it was just one minute before supposed to go live and then at some point these people were literally covering everything around me i mean clearly these are the protesters from the my down but i had to withdraw because i really knew what they didn't know what the intentions were and besides there were grenades thrown from the outside by the police so this was quite scary in the first place then i went inside the hotel and had to do
8:04 am
another live shot and i'll we can see it on that video i was getting ready i was actually already talking on the phone with the with the studio in moscow when a bullet came through the window over there where i was supposed to stand in two minutes so literally i was two minutes away from being shot dead in see the bullet hole it went through the window into the wall and ricocheted it over there these are the parts of the bullet which are left on the wall. so literally two minutes after that i went on air. from a safer position and these were my first words when i came in just to give you an idea of what's happening right now i would probably love to give you a better view of the independence square which is just over here but we were just short we just saw a gunfire it literally broke our window over here you could see i asked my camera to zoom in we were standing meters not even meters maybe same to be just a way in the evening we found the bullet seven sixty two kalashnikov one of our rooms and one of our colleagues our camera system and then you and east of had his bulletproof vest scratched graved by a bullet from
8:05 am
a window i'll just give you some of my videos which i shot with my phone on the ground when the assault happened. this was touted as the area which was completely shot at this is the place where the sniper fire you can see a person there he's filming he's a tourist is not a press he doesn't have a book with us was filming the retreat of the policeman on that balcony over there this is the police line that's where they are. it was supposed that coming from what you see no one is firing the person just walking down the street we the press me myself we're standing over here. this is five minutes later one bullet started whistling you can see these people over here these are the ones we all know what happened to them they were all killed or fatally wounded they had no weapons on the shields and they went to the police lines over there in this one and there's two and now there'll be a very peculiar moment please stop directed to stop so this is one of the protesters one of the rioters is running with a gun with a rifle in his hand so the question i am still struggling to answer is how come
8:06 am
these people with no weapons when their this guy is running away in five minutes or seven minutes after that the first dead body and he's already dead i mean he was still alive but he was dead in a matter of minutes i know that because i saw him die he was carried inside the lobby of the hotel the biggest question right now i still don't understand who made those people weaponless people go in to the police lines when people with guns were running away from their. meanwhile r.t. has come under fire from many major news outlets and here's why well yesterday i was standing right here and telling you about crimea's options as it's about to decide on the top of me from ukraine but we were accused of already showing crimea as part of russia it must have taken a great deal of effort to take that particular screenshot instead of an actual broader one. now meanwhile brussels was rolling out the red carpet for ukraine's new prime minister and his speech featured some off the wall statements he said russian tanks were on the ground in crimea and then came up with another surprising
8:07 am
claim stating that iran already has nuclear weapons however many media outlets chose to ignore them now here's are just going to you can it was more on this in other on the reported happenings. people who took power in kiev now have all propaganda resources of the western media at their disposal. they chose to ignore the leaked conversation in which two european leaders talk about evidence that might only leaders may have ordered the snipers to shoot at people so that varies i was stronger and stronger understanding that to be hardened snipers they were it was not going to call rich but it was somebody from the new coalition c.n.n. had been tear along their web site which started with this phrase don't weed too much into this conversation not only do they skip what's uncomfortable for the guy they're rooting for. they apparently sometimes edit whatever unrelieved stuff you
8:08 am
may be staying ukraine's interim prime minister arseniy yatsenyuk at a news conference several times mentions russian troops and russian tanks on the ground in ukraine and in their repulsed the friendly media never mentions the tanks . maybe because nobody has seen tanks there and maybe because they don't want to make him look stupid for making unverified claims like that. in this cheering campaign for ukrainian revolution the media here have left out a lot of what was happening in ukraine reports like this this is a governor in a western part of ukraine who tried to calm down a waging mob over rioters he was severely beaten and handcuffed to a protest stage. and generally there's not much questioning about what's happening with people in the western part of ukraine who are opposed to what happened in kiev us presents the
8:09 am
revolution there is a time for democracy when people have not had their say yet. on the other hand there's a media offensive to discredit the upcoming referendum in crimea we're going to see it intensify because those are the voices that they don't want to hear the proposed referendum would violate the constitution of ukraine and international law as you imagine in this chorus of russia hating western media our channel is attacked left and right for being aware voiced to offer a different perspective and this is one of the latest pinches that we received crimea is set to decide whether to become part of russia russian t.v. today showed ukraine as if it was already part of the family except on this map on the map of ukraine we highlighted in blue the part of ukraine that is pro russian that's all and it's not clear how this map supports b.b.c.'s claims that that russia has annexed crimea according to all. team twitter went crazy with similar
8:10 am
claims they showed this photo with me as part of auto flusher when in fact it was part of the bankers the anchor talking about different options for events unfolding as locals will have to choose between two options and wine it is to stay part of ukraine and the other is to become part of russia as you can see when you tear something out of context you get a completely different picture another way of saying it do not rely on just one source of information in washington i'm going to shake up our team. well after voting unanimously to join russia crimean lawmakers are now in moscow to discuss the move with members of the russian parliament let's get all the very latest from our correspondent. were you know what's come out of that meeting do bring us some details while prime min the officials who are given a very warm welcome completes with flowers applause and even
8:11 am
a standing ovation as you can see on your screen right now and the message was very simple to use your phrase and we will support whichever decision you make then the speaker of russia's upper house of parliament's went on to outline what they can expect from moscow. if that decision is made crimea will have the same rights as all other subjects of the russian federation and as you know russian regions have much greater autonomy than those of ukraine for example and of course the people of crimea will have the same social benefits pensions and salaries as the rest of russia. and that's not only russian officials pledging their support to crimea we have live pictures now from a central moscow where many people have gathered to express their solidarity as well now crimea ends and also those in sevastopol will be going to the polls on march the sixteenth where there will choose if they want to be part of russia or if they want to remain in the tone of this republic with whichever that the way they
8:12 am
see it it's their decision to make and we will find out what they want the following sunday. of course maria thank you so much for bringing us this update marina cossar of their. now european leaders have decided to suspend visa negotiations with moscow as well as preparations for the upcoming g. eight summit but despite the harsh rhetoric of the e.u. refrain from tougher economic sanctions which is understandable all the idea of travel bans which was floated by madrid would certainly harm the tourist industry travelers from russia spent over two billion euros a year in spain and a potential trade restrictions would also injure the wider european. france for example doesn't want to miss out on a one billion euro deal to supply russia was two mistral warships and ask for germany forty percent of its oil and gas comes from russia while the e.u. as a whole relies on moscow for a third of its natural gas supply now economic relations expert reiner lynn there
8:13 am
told us mosque in brussels need stable economic ties from the german business perspective we need of course what we call stability in the trade relations germany and russia relations of about seventy five billion euros last year i think this is going to be happen this year as well so we're not in favor of any sanctions what we see now from the brussels summit is that there are some sanctions or at least the negotiations are suspended for the reason liberalization that again hits people actually most that's why i think we need to come back to a diplomatic. negotiations to solve the problems to solve the crisis with russia and ukraine. and coming up in a few minutes corporations weigh in on scotland's independence debate the house of oil giant shell long with a big financial companies warned it's god's going it alone would be bad for business.
8:14 am
ukrainians literally in the crosshairs delete telephone conversation revealing e.u. officials learned members of the opposition that hired snipers to kill innocent bystanders and police is being largely ignored by the western mainstream in washington intern near destroyed they continue to drive. the. economic downturn in the final long day. and the rest because i. believe if we.
8:15 am
are very serious. now you. are. welcome to ask here what you are to international now big corporations have one after another spoken out against scottish independence lloyd's and barclays banks have been joined by the c.e.o. of oil giant shell who says he would like scotland to remain part of the u.k. or smith has more on the oil giants has come down firmly on the side of the no campaign saying. i would prefer scotland to remain in the u.k. because independence carries risks and uncertainties interestingly the chairman of shell u.k. originally said the company wouldn't be weighed in on the debates and it's purely a matter for the school to decide but the c.e.o.
8:16 am
has written that to create this. business and politics i spoke to mcleod he's pro independence there any closer you get things that the shell boss has a point because business is not stability right i don't think an independent scotland is going to create the movers and instantly he said we aren't already you everyone's entitled to an opinion but i think. he would like to speak as part of. a certain which some of the major party said we did in the you are actually. two we. are sort of. in. an independent scotland would be there and we're sorry and i think they should be mainly a political question but. she used to express their bodies and i would degree their . business he should have their views here but when you look websites like that
8:17 am
are together they are sort of comedy. act. and things actually actually and so the war of words continues project as it's been dubbed by the s.n.p. and it will only intensify as september's referendum draws near. on line for you right now at the olympics michel help is met with applause but some are forced to pay a high price for aiding a rival once the games are over head to r.t. dot com for the details on how a german bobsled pilot's good intentions are being punished. also there because mysterious career is allegedly a mask for more details of the elusive person who might have an advantage of the digital currency log on to our website. right from the scene. of the search for you and i were being featured.
8:18 am
on our reporter's twitter. and instagram. could be a month. on mom. this is. from. the mission. history mission. she showed it was that she could unite people with you know. when i'm alone. or we had a very trusting relationship here's a chief but a chief one of this kind who communicates who wants to know the truth.
8:19 am
and i could not imagine that the president could communicate like this before i became a president and asked her like a brother like a father. i'm sure that if at this moment i got struck by lightning. leave it there are many leaders of the revolutionary hell invariant that can continue this process. welcome back you're watching us here national in just a few hours time the olympic flame is about to eliminate the black sea coast once again marking the start of the eleventh winter paralympic games our very own
8:20 am
lindsey france gives a firsthand report of the action. well the winter games are indeed a tough act to follow but these paralympians have displayed a strength of character and in all athletic prowess that prove they can shine just as brightly now the winter paralympic games themselves are relatively young they only began back in one nine hundred seventy six but since then they've gone from strength to strength always expanding this year we welcome three new nations there's a new sports snowboarding and the ranks of athletes have swollen quite a bit over a thousand the home team itself is up to nearly two hundred we spent some time with two of them who told us about the barriers they plan to break after the opening ceremonies kick off. since team russia success the pressure is on for the paralympic team to keep that momentum going it's a fact that its athletes can ski and shoot their way to the gold and silver medals
8:21 am
coming second in the medals ranking in vancouver two thousand and ten but there are some changes since then for example paris snowboarding is taking the stage and russia serafin is a guy who wouldn't let a leg amputation stop him from doing what he loves but the more the sport because it's my favorite sport i was snowboarding long before it became par and snowboarding and long before it was even declared a sports little show for me it's amazing that snowboarding has become an olympic sport it's very important actually at the. well he's tackling the slopes team russia is also making it a first on the ice the nation sledge hockey team will also be making a debut with the games with every play. about victory how to grab it and never let it go this is important the team captain vadim said you can lost both legs while serving in the military in chechnya and that was in two thousand and two the rink is now his battlefield and he's already led his team to third place in the recent world championships just to see the hero almost every day at this training base
8:22 am
morning till night training backing down to the world sled hockey challenge this year we played against the teams of canada in the u.s. they're very skilled athletes we still can't do their experience especially in the little things we're trying very hard to do while the importance of the paralympics has grown in russia so has the awareness of access for people with impaired mobility and everyday life such itself underwent to transform ation and plans are in place to make that a nationwide norm it's something that the russian paralympic team is set out to prove along with its medal. the athletes are agents for change not only in their communities but in the wider world as representatives of the game and that is certainly true here in russia now focusing on the home team in vancouver two thousand and ten they were ranked second in the medal standing with thirty eight we're talking ten gold sixteen silvers and ten bronze now in order to break the
8:23 am
record as most successful host of the paralympic games they've got to take seventy one it's going to be a lot of work with see if they can do it. now it's a quote some of the stories from around the world facebook and you tube may soon be outlawed in turkey the country's prime minister is accusing his political rivals of posting forged audio clips online in a plot to wreck his government ahead of upcoming local elections in a way to recording a go on is allegedly heard suggesting to a journalist should be fired ankara recently tightened control of the internet on the pretax of defending privacy a move that was met with fierce public opposition. at least five people have been killed and eight others wounded when a motorcycle bomb went off in a crowded market in the southern afghan region of march no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack but the rest of area is known for a heavy presence of taliban insurgents although driven back by the us in two
8:24 am
thousand and ten the taliban have slowly returned to the area with locals claiming almost eighty percent of helmand province is under the group's control. protests have broken out in the disputed area of kashmir in support of dozens of muslim students expelled from the or university after cheering for the pakistani cricket team during a recent match against india they could possibly face life imprisonment over sedition charges but the indian state's leader has called for leniency pakistan's government has expressed support for the students who argue you're being discriminated against by indeed authorities. a soldier and a motorcyclist have been killed in venezuela after opposition brick house has blocked a street in the capital caracas they were reportedly trying to clear a barricade when residents of nearby buildings hurled rocks and fired shots at them troops used tear gas to disperse the crowd this brings the number of those killed
8:25 am
in a new year a month long anti-government protest to twenty. six people and gas discussed the media war waged around ukraine's unfolding crisis that's been crossed on the. u.s. army specialist albert kelly the third is accused of running a scam in which he helped an afghan trucking company. steal huge amounts of fueled by cooking the army books and making it seem as though the fuel had been used when in reality it was diverted they accuse kelly how to make it into a twenty five thousand gallons of fuel vanish into a bureaucratic black hole at four dollars a gallon that is a lot of cash obviously this is wrong but in comparison to the profiteering made off of the war it is
8:26 am
a joke that this guy is even going to jail think about the trillions of dollars spent on the post nine eleven wars of luxury tons of big companies have all gotten huge pieces of the murder pie like raytheon with their missiles lockheed martin with their jets and halliburton and blackwater and so on and so on when all these big companies note the system with big contracts during war why should the average grunt take part in alluding to what reason does this kelly guy have to not also try to make a buck off the war it seems like in the world there are people who are often punished not because they steal but because they still far too little while not wearing nice suits but that's just my opinion. doesn't the steam. it puts everything in. letting go of those identities for me isn't. part of the protecting. somebody they would make
8:27 am
a brother to but then if they really knew your story. they'd kill you. there's no need for a crazy home. it's nice to meet you my name is june what's your name my name is geoffrey. hello and welcome to cross talk where all things considered i'm peter lavelle
8:28 am
ukrainians literally in the crosshairs of the leak telephone conversation revealing e.u. officials learned members of the opposition and hired snipers to kill innocent bystanders and police is being largely ignored by the western mainstream this is very disturbing though not surprising the e.u. in washington engineered this coup and continue to drive events. across about the crisis in ukraine i'm joined by my guest brian becker in new york he is the national coordinator of the answer coalition in london we have alexander the class of he is a political commentator and former premier and advisor and in berlin we cross to many well oxen writer he is a journalist editor and reporter gentlemen welcome to cross cross talk rules in fact that means you can jump in anytime you want and i very much encourage you alexander in london if i go to you first here as i started out in the introduction this sniper story coming out of care of his being largely ignored by western media what explains that in your opinion. well i think it's part of the general
8:29 am
picture of karl the western media and british media as well. covering the news the events in the crimea you know i know some of those hacks who actually stand out in front of the cameras in crimea and i'm astonished what best say i mean they're just sometimes that basically making up things as if the facts and the filming so the flip side irrelevant irrelevant situations and then they say well that's a cute story it's a big story and it shows it proves that it's an invasion and so on and so on so the word invasion and aggression are always used all the time and of course a lot of stories so wild stories told about the russian troops you know surrounding world through ups you remember the incident with those way of looking at ukrainian people marching in a call them with
8:30 am
a band us singing singing imagine they went to to work like that approaching the base with for us and soldiers standing there this was presented as a sort of a brutal brutal force by the russian troops i mean this is ridiculous so so when you say why then that showing that big story ashton talking to this story in foreign minister well i mean that's just part of the overall picture it brian and i find it really disturbing is that they missed the story about the snipers being hired by members of the coalition that are in power right now that's not given much focus but the another story the quote unquote invasion of crimea again is hyperbole here the there are russian troops they've been there since one thousand nine hundred ninety nine under an agreement between the government of ukraine and russia but that doesn't seem to get much traction in the media what i'm saying is facts don't get much traction. right and not only has the leasing agreement allowed thousands of russian troops to be in the crimea but of course the crimea was part
8:31 am
of russia historically and only transferred is a largely administrative measure in the mid one nine hundred fifty s. from russia to the ukraine when they were still one country the soviet union the union of soviet socialist republics at that time the transfer had no significance and certainly no geo strategic significance and only assume that after nine hundred ninety one when the dissolution of the soviet union meant that the ukraine became a big prize as did all the other former soviet russian republics for targeting by u.s. and nato powers in absorption into a western sphere of influence when you see the fact that the western media is not giving any coverage at all to the discussions about the possible use of snipers by the fascist and semi fascist forces as a provocation that too is just part of the big propaganda campaign of course we remember that the fascists use that fire in one thousand nine hundred three as a as a provocation to to carry out
8:32 am
a then in germany and to destroy the progressive and communist and socialist forces that were dominant in germany and we know the u.s. government uses pretext all the time from the gulf of tonkin that started the vietnam war and ever since so we see that these tactics including use of provocations in creating a narrative that shows that the. jacobo niche government which was overthrown in a coup d'etat was in fact the perpetrator when what we appeared to see now is since the end of november deliberately staged e.u. slash us. using seventy fascist and fascist forces to overthrow an elected government perhaps a corrupt government but an elected government if interesting then well if i go to you in berlin and you can connect the dots here you have the new and we have this tape now about the snipers i mean it's very interesting is that no one in western media wants to make the. kind of connections here we want to look at a supposed invasion from russia which is
8:33 am
a complete myth but it did same time you know it's the it's russia strangling holding hostage ukraine it's a complete fiction but it seems to be working there are going to be sanctions right . first of all that we should really really stop to be angry and to be upset about life itself western mainstream media because it will not change weston it's all this conflict in ukraine is about geopolitics it's a pure geo political conflict no ideology no party no crimean no only guard or anything else plays a role it's about geopolitical interests the mainstream media the western mainstream media place a certain role in this war in this geo political conflict to place the role of the of the preval or artillery on the people on the on its own people in europe and on the west and we shouldn't be surprised at all when the stories seem to us orchestra they are silenced or they are put into
8:34 am
a much different context than they should we shouldn't be surprised that until today this phone tape this really important phone tip about the snipers and we are talking there about a huge crime by the way not the fault of corruption or so we are talking about killing people right now but it is presented as a sort of conspiracy theory so we shouldn't wonder and on the other side what you are mentioning peter is completely correct that we are talking about an a russian aggression a russian invasion and so on also nothing takes place on the other side when the west thus an invasion and an aggression we are talking not about that we are not using those terms in western mainstream media they talk about humanitarian intervention when we do air rights rates when western air forces two air raids it isn't on flights so on they are turning out so we shouldn't wonder at all about the things how they. presented by western mainstream media and our chance is simply to do it much better and i think we are doing that too right now alexander what i find
8:35 am
truly astounding is these neo nazis in kiev right now that the e.u. in washington is an bracing people have asked me all through this crisis what to the russians what are they afraid of in the east well they're afraid of a lot of these people the rhetoric and some of the laws that they want to pass here it's truly terrifying and it does remind us all of the one nine hundred thirty s. in europe there's real justification for fear on the part of russian minorities in ukraine. well you know if you though i need to say something about this whole situation you know this and if in goals morality liberal morality which has strength for the self in the west has now spread to no it makes the politics to culture to everywhere and this so that at the truth if you can get away with it yeah do it i think that's how i will describe what the west is doing in ukraine has absolutely no limits to what the you know. fall they can go in basically calling
8:36 am
black white and white blick and i'm frankly a bit confused by the so-called discoloration that they were talking all the time and i mentioned to them here to the british guys how about you discriminating a bit about you know calling on russia to be a scholarly but you deescalate and stop inflating and flaming the situation and provoking violence because some of the comments which i see from from you from crimea i feel that this is inflammatory bouldering all provoking violence will i get i an alexander example have dander and it's this is what i think i agree with you this is a lot brian if i go to you to new york these folks in kiev want to violence they don't want an election because they know if it was free and fair they would never make it into power legally this is they want violence it's the only way they're going to stay in power and the e.u. in washington is backing them up. i mean let's not forget the ousted government the
8:37 am
government that was overthrown by a coup d'etat that government actually was not opposed to integration with the e.u. what they did is they refused to sign on to the agreement on on the end of november which imposed harsh austerity severe harsh harsh austerity on the ukrainian working population and they were offered a better deal from russia not because russia was demanding as an ultimatum make your decision europe or russia not at all they offered them an economic greenman that not impose austerity and the elected government chose to go with that agreement at that moment starting that night these protests began and they were sustained day after day after day because of the interference by nato and u.s. officials that said keep going forward guys keep sustaining your protests and even when it turned into an armed struggle they still brought pastries to the square and
8:38 am
made on to show that the west was with them with all of their vast economic and military power the e.u. and the united states and nato have the blood of those who died in downtown kiev on their hands because they deliberately provoked it for geo strategic purposes to limit to circle russia and of course to put into place in kiev even if it's fascist led a government that will blow its existence to western forces you know man well if i go back you merlin it's very interesting the february twenty first agreement this is what's killed what was left of democracy in ukraine and mr kerry goes around and talks about democracy again depok recy. it's absolutely because. what was mentioned already so very right the only way he now for the west to gain and to keep the controller. on you of ukraine of course from key if that is the strategy of tension i think any election. a whole national election in ukraine
8:39 am
where the he sent the south will elect the people will see very quick that the country is still split that there is not the eighty percent my dorothy for the so-called revolution or so i think it's not in the interest of the west that particular help in the interest of foot chunk area was in my opinion maybe the best paint liar in the western world to i think it's the most professional of the best but. we have just to remember what he did with syria what he did with with others with other foreign politics topics i think it's very often that when he opens his mouth you shouldn't you shouldn't believe so i don't i'm not i don't know gentlemen we're going to go to a short break here now to that your break we'll continue our discussion on ukraine stay with r.t. . see .
8:40 am
the real con on the roadside to the car skidded at breakneck speed and fell into a ditch and i was thrown out of the car she was like a broken down it wasn't a single hold piece left i thought if i lived and had a chance to start my life from scratch i would start making goals to help children . learn 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 la has raised money for us she helps us to get a leg braces five years after my potentially fatal injuries in a car crash i gave birth to my little miss. i think she. my reward for helping

8:42 am
please. welcome back to cross talk we're all things are considered i'm peter lavelle to remind you we're discussing the recent developments in ukraine. ok i'm going to go back to you in london the west always likes to talk about the right of self-determination well looks like the folks in crimea are about to make
8:43 am
that decision in a few weeks' time about their fate here but of course this is not seen as being legitimate in the west please comment on that. while it was you know it's as it was expected whatever the crimean people decide the west will not accept them the key of for a lot will not accept it so that would not be a big deal to build this with you because of the way things are developing you can see that the people who have taken power in key of the world where very well prepared and they were very well trained that they control the money of the p.r. advice and so on and let me give you extra bit a specific example when the whole trouble started you know well it's basically started from december first right at some point i used my connection to the ukrainian government and plus the message to president which go to. the security council the moment the shooting started and the point by the police started to die
8:44 am
go to the security council because this is an invasion basically he didn't look at the way this new lot acted immediately they went to the security council and secession support for most sides i think you know the problem is of course that richard and his government they didn't really you know respond properly to the crisis and i think that point was made by both president putin and prime minister medvedev and i think that that is the point that you know these these west them sort of support those allies and so on they're now open rating on the same level as the americans. so i think for other countries i think russia by the way in their suspect had a very calm approach very restrained he's very restrained it's very restrained restraining but it looks at this but it's not reflected in media go ahead and go head to head. look at that hysterical column and statements by all the politicians
8:45 am
by a bomb whoever this and look at the way putin presented his case in a very calm way by the way even though some kids take note was made out to which those idiots without. deducted that he was lying with a smile so that these are not the russian soldiers you know what he meant by that of course they were some of them were russian soldiers but he meant saying to the west if you don't think that you can say that these thugs in qif are free of the fight as well you can then think that these are not our soldiers they're just volunteers and then guess what happened all his life all we can say for all of us a little bright we're going to let me go healing you are speaking this story is moving towards crimea because western media will not focus on the fascist regime of neo fascist regime in camp but it's. i mean here what about self-determination here i mean everybody's if they push it for kosovo why can't you know the put the good
8:46 am
folks to crimea how but it's well well ever since woodrow wilson proposed his thesis for self-determination and interposed to lenin's position on self-determination you can see self-determination means different things to different people and of course behind the self-determination slogan are real naked material national or perceived national interest as you mentioned the united states and the nato powers broke up the multinational republic of yugoslavia republics that had lived in peace and they said well these were age old integra isms and the people could never ever live together and they must be independent because of wars they had their own agenda which was to create small states and weak states and absorb eastern and central europe the former socialist bloc countries into a nato spear of influence always under the slogan of something noble in that case self-determination so now you see the people in crimea fearful not necessarily
8:47 am
wanting to be out of the ukraine originally but fearful of a fascist pooched that's taken place or a fascist led that's taken place in kiev may decide to exercise their right of self-determination and decide to federate with russia the united states must be it must be understood by all the people the world the filter must be when the united states advocates for self-determination when they have been the enslaver of nations as have the french and the british in the german through long periods of colonization when they issued that slogan it's the worst kind of hypocrisy and just a mask for the real interest which is to be able to control all of the ukraine to move all of the ukraine into the united states and use all of the ukraine as a staging ground in the future for nato on russia's border recognizing that russia could never accept such a fate especially given the history of how the germans and other invaders have. through the ukraine first in one thousand eight hundred when they swallowed up all
8:48 am
of ukraine after the treaty and then in june one thousand forty one when hitler sent most of his divisions against the soviet union through the ukraine no russian government no government that speaks for russian sovereignty and independence in defense could allow such a thing to happen you know meant well in berlin the prize really is crimea that's why i'm talking about it because that's what nato wants they want to crimea maybe the rest of the country you know acid strip it in all of that with the i.m.f. ok fine but the oh yeah i mean they don't really care if somebody is going to make some money off of it but it's the base they want the crimea for that nato wants it . he expects so and that what you are saying about the self-determination of course with the self-determination a very big convert to very important for it is the same with anything else in geopolitics it is just referring to the geopolitical interest the safety terminations of the crimean people simply any room in washington any not at all
8:49 am
so far of washington it's only important that the ukrainian state what they are there saying nonstop that the state the integrity of this so-called state of this artificial entity is staying as it is now because the crimea of course is part of the state of course with it with an autonomous. order but as part of ukraine so of course this is all about this and what ever will happen at the sixteenth of march how big the crimea in the referendum vote for their independence or even for becoming legal part off the russian federation it will not be recognized by brussels neither by washington of course not but if the same situation takes place in any other part where it fits to the interests the geopolitical interests of the west you mentioned the example of kosovo but it's very good because. in nawa in a couple of weeks we celebrate attention marks fifteen years nato attacks against
8:50 am
serbia when it was supposed kosovo so when it's about kosovo independence complete different standards are vetted complete the point is that we know that it is like that and anybody and everybody can see that it's like that but that what we were talking before that the mainstream media the powerful mainstream media is imposing those lies in such a bombardment style on the people that it is to repeat that and repeat that when the crimean will vote at the sixteenth off march against being part of ukraine anybody in the west will think that this was an orchestra referendum and there is no rightful choice or no rightful decision made after this referendum this is the problem ok now exam let's talk about sanctions here i think you'll join me jumping if i could jump in. just remember just remember too that in early june one thousand
8:51 am
nine hundred nine june third after the united states and nato had dropped twenty three thousand bombs and missiles on serbia in support of kosovo independence the all the nato forces prepared for a ground invasion remember that in early june one thousand nine hundred nine against serbia serbia agreed under that pressure to give up kosovo a historic part of serbia and now these same forces are still are telling putin and russia that if they exercise their legal rights they have a military presence as they do through the leasing of saying that we the bays if they have any effort to. secure those bases into secure and protected the russian speaking population in crimea that's an act of existential aggression when they were threatening serbia after bombing serbia for three or four months i mean the hypocrisy there has to be brought out ok well it will. western media won't do that alexander let's talk about sanctions here huffing and puffing isn't going to have
8:52 am
any effect because i don't see it well i don't think the sanctions will work first of all most of the countries will not even dare to impose them i mean britain for example exists so i'm russia and china and you sort of got some money basically because the company the britain is bankrupt p. to be but britain holds five trillion dollars which is a bug and it's growing america's bankrupt seventeen trillion and up words these guys could not afford to introduce sanctions and lose don't know come when you come that it's of billions of inch of it and all these so-called smart sanctions this is all fancy talk you know this is for the domestic consumption look at how tough we are you know like a cowboy film in the reality first of all his here's the deal for you the oligarchs be they from russia from china from india whatever they do know it keep them money in britain that are made because they keep it offshore so what can they do take
8:53 am
from them will freeze peanuts right secondly when they go off the politicians how do they actually select as they said about the russian politicians in america the ones who were instrumental in invasion of crimea well there's this how do they do that how do they calculate who did that do they go for gender roles although they go for the curve all right whereas the right in fact would be the timing well i want to go to you and berlin the i see it is the e.u. is broken in ukraine are they going to pay for it now. well when we frankly speaking when we talk the e.u. wants to pay for this and that to and i am a german we have to say that germany at the end will bail out and will pay for this and that and this is maybe an interesting point but we were you were mentioning the sanctions what is interesting it's somehow ridiculous to speak about sanctions against a super state like like russia with its huge tree services
8:54 am
a free source to send energy and so on so when the e.u. countries talk about sanctions against russia in reality they talk about sanctions against germany because germany is the most important trading partner you know for russia and of course in france and in spain and course in london. today and this guy surely would have been run out of time many thanks to my guess somebody york london and in berlin and thanks to our viewers for watching us here at r.t. see you next time and remember. believe the things you want.
8:55 am
i'm depressed brother. and this. history. she showed that she could unite people. finally pulled out her we had a very trusting relationship here's a chief but a chief one of his kind who communicates who wants to know the truth. and i could not imagine that the president could communicate like this before i became a president and after like a brother like a father. jewel
8:56 am
case seems to me i'm sure that if at this moment i got struck by lightning. leave it there are many leaders of the revolutionary hell invariant that can continue this process. this comes from the heart you know i've never even seen him in person for me this is the image of a hero the world's first cosmonaut everyone knows his name but few people ever met . first spaceflights the product of good fortune or destiny. he could see the ground they started throwing punches at it. was a turning point. in

fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and our trust cynical we've been hijacked why handful powerful transnational corporations that will profit by destroying what our founding fathers once it's all just my job market and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on on the world we go beyond identifying the problem to try and rational debate and a real discussion critical issues facing me not to find a job ready to join the movement then welcome to the big picture. i'm already hearing that germany. is now i am glad hearts.
8:59 am
turned. to me.
9:00 am
there's there all the world can nato. say sorry. russians and boy do you and lashes out in american mainstream media for turning a blind eye to evidence suggesting ukraine's new coalition hired snipers. that transcript which created quite a stir in the russian and some european media was computer ignored russia calls on the un to launch a probe into the mine down killings artie's like your ship state was caught in the firing line there. for which i was two minutes away from being shot dead. next year shift your calls what he witnessed during the violence in the ukrainian capital. also a surprising vision of the world from ukraine's new prime minister tells a gathering in brussels that iran already has nuclear weapons and. on the ground to russian tanks. russian tanks have never crossed the border but mr
9:01 am
yeltsin oops outlander statements seem to go unnoticed or are glossed over and that the western media. are watching our senior national coming to life from moscow i'm marina joshing now russia's un envoy has slammed the us mainstream media for ignoring the staggering leak which revealed it was the grains former opposition to who allegedly ordered the shooting on my done let's not recall what the public learned from that leaked phone conversation between the two of the e.u.'s top officials. well first the stunning foreign minister tells that he was catherine ashton that it was likely ukraine's new leadership and not the old ministration who hired the snipers and second mr piatt says he has seen evidence that the very same sniper has targeted
9:02 am
both rioters and police finally he expresses deep concern is that the former opposition is reluctant to investigate the shootings and he'd expect those revelations to be a game changer but they've received very little attention from western politicians and media outlets russia's ambassador to the u.n. would tell you to again highlighted the issue unfortunately that transcript which created quite a stir in russian on some european media was completely ignored by the mainstream american media and as to who was the source of sniper fire you may have seen the footage on the internet we have seen it on television there were clearly opposition snipers who took over a hotel in downtown in downtown. who were working a snipers shooting on somebody in the streets so now it's obvious that they were the ones who were killing both the policemen and those who are protesting in order
9:03 am
to exploit even further protest and take power by force to execute this school. in ukraine well the russian oun boy has also urged the u.n. to push for an investigation into the shootings and killings and our crew actually came under sniper fire there as well while he was covering events. had a narrow escape and he recalls now that day and how the bloodshed on ravelled on the streets of kiev. it's so good now being without a bulletproof vest because i had to wear it for literally two weeks there let me just give you the idea how my morning february the twentieth on thursday started i came to do a live shot in front of a great hotel and things started to unravel right where i was standing you can see . a grenade going off it was just one minute before supposed to go live and then at some point these people were literally covering everything around me i mean clearly these are the protesters from the my down but i had to withdraw because i really knew what don didn't know what the intentions were and besides there were grenades thrown from the outside by the police so this was quite scary in the first place
9:04 am
then i went inside the hotel and had to do another live shot and i'll we can see it on that video i was getting ready i was actually already talking on the phone with the with the studio in moscow when a bullet came through the window over there where i was supposed to stand in two minutes so literally i was two minutes away from being shot dead in see the bullet hole it went through the window into the wall and ricocheted it over there these are the parts of the bullet which are left on the wall. so literally two minutes after that i went on air. from a safer position and these were my first words when i came in just to give you an idea of what's happening right now i would probably love to give you a better view of the independence square which is just over here but we were just short we just saw a gunfire it literally broke our window over here you could see i asked my camera to zoom in we were standing meters not even meters maybe centimeters the way leaving we found the bullet seven sixty two kalashnikov one of our rooms and one of our colleagues our camera system and then you and use of had his bulletproof vest
9:05 am
scratched graved by a bullet from a window i'll just give you some of my videos which i shot with my phone on the ground when the assault happened. this was touted as the area which was completely shot at this is the place where the sniper fire you can see a person there he's filming he's a tourist is not a press he doesn't have a book with us was filming the retreat of the policeman on that balcony over there this is the police line that's where they are. it was supposed that coming from what you see no one is firing the person just walking down the street we the press me myself we're standing over here. this is five minutes later one bullet started whistling you can see these people over here these are the ones we all know what happened to them they were all killed or fatally wounded they had no weapons on the shields and they went to the police lines over there in this one and there's two i know there'll be a very peculiar moment please stop directed to stop so this is one of the protesters one of the rioters running with a gun with
9:06 am
a rifle in his hand so the question i am still struggling to answer is how come these people with no weapons when their this guy is running away in five minutes or seven minutes after that the first dead body and he's already dead i mean he was still alive but he was dead in a matter of minutes i know that because i saw him die he was carried inside the lobby of the hotel the biggest question right now i still don't understand who made those people weaponless people go in to the police lines when people with guns were running away from there. meanwhile r.t. has come under fire from many major news outlets and here's why well yesterday i was standing here and telling you about crimea's options as it's about to decide on autonomy from ukraine but we were accused of already showing crimea as part of russia and it must have taken a great deal of effort to take that particular screenshot instead of an actual broader one well meanwhile brussels was rolling out the red carpet for ukraine's
9:07 am
new prime minister and his speech some off the wall statements he said that russian tanks were on the ground in crimea and then came up with another surprising claim stating that iran already has nuclear arms however many media outlets chose to ignore that here's our was more on this and other on the reported happenings. people who took power in kiev now have all propaganda resources of the western media at their disposal. they chose to ignore the leaked conversation in which two european leaders talk about evidence that might only leaders may have ordered the snipers to shoot at people so that series i was stronger and stronger understanding that behind snipers they were it was not going to call rich but it was somebody from the new coalition c.n.n. had material on their website which started with this phrase don't weed too much into this conversation not only do they skip what's uncomfortable for the guy
9:08 am
they're rooting for. they apparently sometimes edit or whatever on realistic stuff you may be staying ukraine's interim prime minister arseniy yatsenyuk at a news conference several times mentions russian troops and russian tanks on the ground in ukraine and in their repulsed the friendly media never mentions the tanks . maybe because nobody has seen tanks there and maybe because they don't want to make him look stupid for making unverified claims like that. in this cheering campaign for ukrainian revolution the media here have left out a lot of what was happening in ukraine reports like this this is a governor in a western part of ukraine who tried to calm down a waging mob over rioters he was severely beaten and to a poll test age. generally there's not much questioning about what's happening with people in the western part
9:09 am
of ukraine who are opposed to what happened in kiev us presents the revolution there is a triumph of democracy when people have not had their say yet. on the other hand there's a media offensive to discredit the upcoming referendum in crimea we're going to see it intensify because those are the voices that they don't want to hear the proposed referendum would violate the constitution of ukraine and international law as you imagine in this chorus of russia heeding western media our channel is attacked left and right for being aware voiced to offer a different perspective and this is one of the latest pinches that we received crimea is set to decide whether to become part of russia russian t.v. today showed ukraine as if it was already part of the family except on this map on the map of ukraine we highlighted in blue the part of ukraine that is pro russian that's all and it's not clear how this map supports b.b.c.'s claims that that
9:10 am
russia has annexed crimea according to all. team twitter went crazy with similar claims they showed this photo with me as part of auto flusher when in fact it was part of the anchors the anchor talking about different options for events unfolding is locals will have to choose between two options and wine is to stay part of ukraine and the other is to become part of russia as you can see when you tear something out of context you get a completely different picture another way of saying it do not rely on just one source of information in washington i'm going to shake up our team. after a historic vote to join russia crimean lawmakers have been greeted in moscow let's get all the latest on this from our correspondent. prime min the officials who are given a very warm welcome complaints with flowers applause and even a standing ovation from the message was very simple answer and we will support
9:11 am
whatever decision you make the speaker of russia's upper house of parliament went on to outline what they can expect from moscow. if the decision is made crimea will have the same rights as all other subjects of the russian federation and as you know russian regions have much greater autonomy than those of ukraine for example and of course the people of crimea will have the same social benefits pensions and salaries as the rest of russia and it's not only russian officials pledging their support through crimea when people have gathered in central moscow to express their solidarity as well now crimea ends and also those in sevastopol will be going to the polls on march the sixteenth where there will choose if they want to be part of russia or if they want to remain in the tone of this republic within ukraine whichever the way they see it it's their decision to make and we will find out what they want the following sunday now the european leaders have decided to suspend
9:12 am
visa negotiations with moscow as well as preparations for the upcoming g. eight summit but despite the harsh rhetoric the e.u. refrain from tougher economic sanctions which is understandable the idea of travel bans or which was floated by in madrid would certainly harm the tourist industry travelers from russia spend over two billion euros a year in spain now any potential trade restrictions would also injure the wider european economy france for example doesn't want to miss out on a one billion euro deal to supply russia with two mistral warships and as for germany forty percent of its oil and gas comes from russia while the e.u. as a whole reliance on moscow for a third of its natural gas supply i counted relations expert told us moscow ambrosch need stable economic ties. from the german business perspective we need of course what we call stability in the trade relations germany and russia relations of about seventy five billion euros last year i think this is going to be
9:13 am
happen this year as well so we're not in favor of any sanctions what we see now from the bustle summit is that there are some sanctions or at least the negotiations are suspended for the reason liberalization that again hits people actually most and that's why i think we need to come back to a diplomatic negotiations to solve the problems to solve the crisis with russia and ukraine coming up in just a few minutes corporations weigh in on scotland in a pan's referendum and they have oil giant shell speaks out against scotland going it alone despite previous claims he would not interfere in the debate. worldwide investigation the fishing industry reveals the. troubled waters of fish fun. day you have the pond to me because. i spread all over norway is

only began back in one thousand nine hundred seventy six but since then they've gone from strength to strength always expanding this year we welcome three new nations there's a new sport snowboarding and the ranks of athletes have swollen quite a bit over a thousand the home team itself is up to nearly two hundred we spent some time with two of them who told us about the barriers they plan to break after the opening ceremonies kick off. since team russia success the pressure is on for the paralympic team to keep that momentum going it's a fact that its athletes can ski and shoot their way to the gold and silver medals coming second to the medals rang. in vancouver two thousand and ten but there are some changes since then for example paris snowboarding is taking the stage at saatchi and russia serafin pickel love is a guy who wouldn't let a leg amputation stop him from doing what he loves but the more to do with sport because it's my favorite sport i was snowboarding long before it became part of
9:21 am
snowboarding and long before it was even declared a sport and so for me it's amazing that snowboarding has become an olympic sport it's very important actually. while he's tackling the slopes team russia is also making it a first on the ice the nation's sledge hockey team will also be making a debut at the games with most every player thinks only about victory how to grab it and never let it go this is important the team captain vadim so you can lost both legs while serving in the military in chechnya and that was in two thousand and two the rink is now his battlefield and he's already led his team to third place in the recent world championships. we are here almost every day at this training base morning till night training marking canada the world sled hockey challenge this year we played against the teams of canada in the u.s. they're very skilled athletes we still can do their experience especially in the little things we're trying very hard to while the importance of the paralympics has

grown in russia so has the awareness of access for people with impaired mobility and everyday life such itself underwent to transform ation and plans are in place to make that a nationwide norm it's something that the russian paralympic team a set out to prove along with its medal count. the athletes are agents for change not only in their communities but in the wider world as representatives of the game and that is certainly true here in russia now focusing on the home team in vancouver two thousand and ten they were ranked second in the medal standing with thirty eight we're talking ten gold sixteen silvers and ten bronze now one or. or to break the record as most successful host of the paralympic games you've got to take seventy one is going to be a lot of work with if they can do it. now take a look at some other stories from around the world and facebook and youtube may soon be outlawed in turkey country's prime minister is accusing his political rivals of posting forged audio clips online and applaud to break his government

these big companies milk the system with big contracts during the war why shouldn't the average grunt take part in alluding to what reason does this kelly guy have to not also try to make a buck off the war it seems like in the world there are people who are often punished not because they steal but because they still far too little while not wearing nice suits but that's just my opinion. we'll call it on the road side car skidded at breakneck speeds and fell into a ditch and i was thrown out because she was like a broken toe it wasn't a single soul piece left and i thought if i lift and had a chance to start my life from scratch i would start making dos to help children. become a great 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. has raised money for

9:28 am
for a transition from a money based economy to a resource based economy interesting stuff you definitely won't want to miss my interview with them and finally and today's big deal edward harrison joins me to discuss the brew identity of the man behind. his name can't miss it you want to miss a moment of it all and it all starts right now. our lead story today shipping while most of us don't often think about the shipping industry the fact of the matter is almost everything you get from overseas is deeply affected by the business of shipping this is why a coalition between the world's three largest shipping companies is worth taking
9:29 am
a closer look at now switzerland the mediterranean shipping company france's c.m.a. c.g.m. group and denmark's maris line which is the largest container ship and supply vessel operator in the entire world now they're all coming together to form an operation called the p three alliance now in two thousand and thirteen this partnership. said that they plan to form a broader route sharing alliance and hope to begin operating in the second quarter of this year two thousand and fourteen however in order to move forward the alliance must get approval from the u.s. maritime commission the deal would also require european and chinese regulatory consent as well now if approved p three would control an estimated forty three percent of the asia to europe container shipping markets forty one percent of the transatlantic market and about twenty four percent of the trans-pacific market so a lot of the market is what we're trying to say however the e.u. competitive commission has launched
9:30 am
a very separate price fixing probe into container shipping companies approach which includes merest m s c and c m a c g m they need more than just acronyms for names either way now the move comes as weak economic growth high fuel costs and low freight rates or road profit margins for the shipping industry however for these three shipping giants and alliance would allow their ships to share pro port facilities from new york to shanghai to rotterdam however smaller shipping companies have protested that the alliance it would have a terrible effect on them and would squeeze them out of many shipping routes now according to the wall street journal customers of the ship customers of ship operators such as freight forwarder importers and export hours are campaigning to block the alliance saying they would have no control in negotiating freight rates with the container shipping companies now given that maris c.m.a. c.g.m. and see the world's largest fleets and biggest individual ships fuel suppliers are
9:31 am
also concerned that once the p three alliance is up and running they won't be able to separately negotiate fuel prices with these three vessel operators which is why this all matters not only just the fuel but also because it looks a lot like an old obsolete now there you go something that. only exist when a particular market is controlled by a small group of firms or group which can greatly influence market factors like price and competition laws such as antitrust laws make all gospel is old old awfully alliance's there you have it well say that. there we go. all of calculating got about done that jim rickards theory moved forward is the
9:32 am
author of the upcoming book the death of money and the book furthers the thesis from his sensational twenty twelve book currency wars last year jim said that the fed would taper into weakness while europe would climb out of its slumber so far that's exactly what's happened so we asked jim to update us about his views on the u.s. europe and japan jim and i also talked about different forms of money take a look. jim now last time we spoke i know we didn't discuss that much but i know that you like gold and we had james turk on our show yesterday who made some pretty strong comments about where gold derives its value from and basically it's value as money i want to play the clip for you check this out. money itself is important to society and we've really lost sight of what money is money is not credit or the promise to pay at some point in time in the future money is a tension that you exchange for another ten. if you use anything other than
9:33 am
attention this money you basically have payment risk and what we now jim do you agree with james that gold is money. i definitely agree that gold is money other things can be money also you know you look at history and culture anthropology from time to time there is have been money clamshells have been money paper it can be money gold community so money is not limited to one particular kind of buy them the key factors are what does that make something money the answer is confidence now i am advocate for gold i think vester should have some portion of their invest of us that's in gold i recommend kind of ten to twenty percent not fifty percent or one hundred percent the world has used gold as money for thousands of years and may do so again in the future there's no reason paper can't be money but only if people have confidence in that so the question is is the confidence in the charts being abused and will the confidence be lost that's what holders of paper money including dollars have to ask themselves hey jim you just asked
9:34 am
a very question can you answer it for me sure i think right now all of people still have confidence in the dollar but i think that confidence is being very quickly wrote it for a number of reasons not number one money printing by the fed i know we haven't seen a lot of price inflation on terms of consumer prices but we are seeing bubbles i think in stocks in housing and elsewhere so we're seeing inflation. price inflation but look the fed has taken their balance sheet from. about eight hundred billion dollars to over four trillion dollars in the last four years what would happen if we had a liquidity crisis tomorrow or next month or next year what's the fed going to do take it to a charity and twelve trillion i mean there is a limit there's a political and psychological and confidence limit to what they can do and so we're pretty much at the outer limits of that now russia is ready to turn their back on the dollar they've said so recently we have escalation of financial we're fair and connection with the ukraine china we know is buying gold thousands of tons of gold two or three or four hundred percent increase in their gold supply rand has been
9:35 am
importing go from turkey look around the world a lot of people are ready to turn their back on the dollar they haven't done it yet but when the confidence is lost it can be lost very quickly and investors need to be prepared for that so where do you think fifty out system is headed specifically over what timeframe. well it's a very good question aaron and the way the way i think about it imagine an avalanche if an avalanche happens and kills some unfortunate people in the way or buries a village do we blame a snowflake there cause it or do we blame the un the unstable snow itself i think you blame the system or the unstable snow same is true on the dollar there may be a precipitant of particular catalytic cause that causes a collapse of confidence in the dollar but it almost doesn't matter what it is what matters is we've created an unstable system we have a dynamic that's capable of very rapid catastrophic collapse so the problem is things can be go along fine and then confidence can be lost very quickly the collapse can come very quickly unexpectedly you know whether it's the failure of an
9:36 am
exchange or failure of a firm or a promise suicide or some kind of default or for who knows it doesn't matter in my view what matters is we have an unstable system that's prone to collapse in order to make the system more stable we need there are things you can do you can break up the big banks and derivatives stop the money printing removes some of the structural impediments to growth in the u.s. economy there are a set of things you can do mostly in the structural side to improve confidence in the dollar but i don't see any of those things being done i just see the united states and our policymakers going down a road that will continue to erode confidence in the dollar but is it when does it happen you know could be you know next month it could be next year or three years and now but i think sooner rather than later because we just can't keep going on this path well speaking of monetary systems i want to get your view on the potential for non monetary systems becoming dominant in the future what do you think that a possibility. well there's going to be some kind of money you know the classic
9:37 am
definition of money has three parts it's a unit of account it's a medium of exchange and it's a store of value of the three the store value is the most important unit of account i mean you can count things or you know bottle caps or baseball cards so almost anything including a big coin which is critical. adventurously says can be a unit of account medium of exchange again it's all digital you know people talk about bitcoin being a digital currency while dollars a digital currency even i might have some you know paper dollars in person or wallet or something we used to buy some coffee at starbucks but the vast majority of the transactions we do whether it's credit cards or you know a paycheck this direct deposited or paying your bills online those are all digital transactions the entire church or market is digital digital they start making paper . certificates i think thirty years ago so so the dollars the digital currency is no reason something else including because it couldn't be digital. but it's something has to be money i don't think we're going to have
9:38 am
a society without money but whether we have a society with a new kind of money that's certainly possible but you don't think in non-monetary society would ever really work because you know there's people out there that suggests such things. well i don't know kind of historically you could have a commune you know the scenes in the jerusalem they put all their property in common and you know lived in common those things starkly have not lasted very long and they've never been very widespread there are communal societies that don't use money but they tend to be very small and never seen one on the on the scale of a nation or an entire civilization certainly not the world here asked me whether money can be truly digital or virtual or virtual or there could be new kinds of money i would say yes but whether there's a money left society that's a little more of a stressed how there is something coming along barter you know the traditional you know barter is you know i've got a pan or something and i want to exchange with you for summer and you have a value and the tradition objection to barter is that
9:39 am
a lot of times that you know you may have something i want to exchange you may have something you want to exchange but we don't want the thing that the other person has so we got to go find a third person so it gets complicated however with electronic platforms and eve barter you can actually reach out as a gay bay or other net. works and find the person with the thing that you want and they've got something the other person wants and you can put those deals together so you could have a money list society that's based on a barter i suppose but the money is useful i'm not anti money i'm just anti debasement of money which is what's going on at the federal reserve that was economist and author jim rickards. time now for a very quick break but stick around because when we return we're bringing you part one of my interview with peter joseph founder of the movement and strong advocate of a resource based economic system i won't want to miss that then i sit down with edward harrison to discuss such toshi it's not the moto who you ask well if you're going
9:40 am
to cut the currency and he'll want to find out and as we head to a quick break here are a look at some of your closing numbers the bell stick around. i always just look at athletes as obsolete south leaches people and it is true to say that many many paralympians of over what may be viewed as barriers whether it's physical or psychological or i don't know what to do with integration into society one thing to buy paralympians is their fight as it will fight very very hard for what they believe in what their rights for what their freedom should be.
9:41 am
i am.
9:42 am
i'm depressed brother. and missed. history. she showed that she could unite people with all. but a month old daughter we had a very trusting relationship here's a chief but a chief one of this kind who communicates who wants to know the truth. to me and i could not imagine that the president could communicate like this before i became a president and after like a brother like a father. to
9:43 am
see the moment i'm sure that if at this moment i got struck by lightning. meet it there are many leaders of the revolutionary hell invariant that can continue this process. well my next guest we bring you a really different perspective on the economy now peter just is a filmmaker and founder of the movement which is a sustainable advocacy organization now the movement believes that social issues such as poverty corruption pollution and war are all the result of an outdated and inefficient social structure they advocate for a new socio economic model a natural law resource based economy i sat down with peter earlier this week to
9:44 am
talk about his ideas and i started off by asking him to explain what he thinks is wrong with our current banking system take a look. starting with the banking system in the financial sector financial sector which i would say is a carson and genic adaptation of the underlying premise of capitalism. the system itself isn't designed to cater to what we would term technical sustainability or social stability in other words you have something called market efficiency which as we all know has to do with the movement of money and the acquisition of efficiency for profit attainment the need to have economic growth to keep people employed all of these attributes require service scene and in truth require technical in efficiency so the more we improve society the more we have technology that can be used for extended periods when we act we adapt our technology more we're able to create sustainable products the more we're able to solve problems in
9:45 am
other words the less fuel there is to drive market fish and sea and keep the economy going the market economy was basically created in the sort of sixteenth century handicraft premise adam smith for example never would have fathom that we would have the largest industry in the world today being the financial sector and people trading and gambling and having the gambling casino economy that we have today with equities and futures and currencies this is a card. in the genic adaptation of the underlying premise of seeking the widget gain as it were from economics one hundred one so it's completely outdated in other words and it's not going to handle the problems we have today with. a billion people starving three billion in poverty the huge water stress that is rising the energy crisis in demand we will have another billion people on this planet another fifteen years these stressors will not be resolved by a system that actually wants inefficiency to keep it going right now can you explain to our viewers what this guy's movement is. because i guess movement is
9:46 am
a global sustainability advocacy organization and in short we get to the root of what is underlying most of the social problems that we see in the world today from the conflict and social instability that we see on a daily basis to again the core ecological crises that we also see made in continuing and what we find is that the root premise of the social model is at fault and i want to make one distinction because when you talk about or criticize capitalism people are very quick to point fingers capitalism did not start in the sixteenth century even though it was formalized as such the promise of capitalism the promise of the market itself is these fear of scarcity and the necessity to compete and gain advantage over others because of that fear and this has amalgamated into this complex system that we have today that is literally decoupled from itself where people are out trading and gaining without any regard for what actually is relevant to social progress so the movement sees this and we also see
9:47 am
that we have men's problem solving capacities and technological solutions out there that are going on used because they are simply too efficient to be applied applicable to keep market circulation going so we wrecked recommend what i term a natural resource based economy and this idea simply says that we need to use the scientific method we need to get down to the root of what actually creates life support creates public health insurance security environment insurance social it ecological sustainability and to do so we need to install a complete different social system that actually has that interest in mind and that is an elaborate conversation that we can go into at length but i must stop right there and i do want to go and say it at length at some point but thank you for sound i never asked my question is sure what happens when economic growth slows today as compared to what would happen when economic growth slows and is more sustainable society that you envision and. oh well the. well that's
9:48 am
a very interesting idea because you're promising economic growth in the market context there would be no economic growth in the same theoretical understanding in a resource based economy economic growth is basically defined about the acceleration of money moving through consumers and producers and and labor excuse me consumer producers and laborers and that's money that circulates and this is what keeps growth going and keep people employed of course employment is the ultimate foundation of an economy if people are employed and they don't get purchasing power they can't buy into the system they can't keep this this highly contrives cycle going in a new model is a socially sustainable model based on the scientific method we don't have economic growth you have actual tangible production to meet human needs and you use the high propensity to highly optimized sustainability and efficiency protocols you could call that we have derived from nature that says ok you shouldn't overuse this resource because it's scarce we should use high propensity resources that have
9:49 am
a good abundance rather than deplete say say rare earth metals for arbitrary purposes such as cheap cell phones that you can buy for ninety nine cents that end up in a landfill never recycled is not designed to so economic growth is a contrivance of thought coming from the monetary economy and i can't even think of a way you would exist in a new system other than the concept of simply producing a meat human needs and access type of society rather than a property it's sidey which is another point that we can touch upon as well so i hope that makes sense it's a market contrivance economic growth it does but my follow up to that is how would a non-monetary society more sustainable. because it would be based on national technical premises of sustainability things that we don't do in the monetary system because market needs turn over market needs and efficiency again if you want to have a very robust market economy you need immense amounts of things to service a given example cancer if we resolved cancer if we were able to actually go after the lifestyle factors the genetic propensities and stop this massive growth of
9:50 am
cancer which is continuing on the planet they would be billions if not trillions of dollars and millions of jobs lost tomorrow if this actual resolution was put forward so if you if you can extrapolate axiomatically that example to what it means to make a car that last one hundred years well imagine for example if we had a housing structure we had advanced housing structures that had advanced production of produce in our own homes and we also had three d. printing machines that were based on nanotechnology that could produce the basic housewares basically capital goods becoming consumer goods in other words what would that mean if we each of us could go say a month without buying anything the entire economy would collapse so the system is not predicated on saving conservation or anything that you can in a classical sense would deem sustainable and i'll add one more thing to that because i think it's it's it's adjacent to it and that's the idea of social sustainability this is done produces conflict it's core driving mechanism is in balance i mean i it's hard to use the word exploitation is it one thing sure
9:51 am
marxist it's very very true if you're going to do cost efficiency which is the core driver of saving money in this type of economy meaning that if i start a business i need necessarily to maintain competition to pay my labor is the least amount i possibly can so i can stay afloat and be competitive outsourcing the thermal labor what have you this is inherently destabilizing because you're pretty in mental health gaps and again it's this carcinogenic incentive system that's where we are today with when the largest wealth gaps in human history and it's only going to get worse i'm sorry to say especially when the stressors of the enviro. mental crises really hit the wealthy are going to continue to compound their greed which greed is based on fear continue to secure their positions and you going to continue to see larger and larger wealth divides until of course as history is proven you end up with probably a revolution of sorts which we are seen periodically around the world right now for similar economic reasons. that was peter just
9:52 am
a filmmaker and founder of the movement time now for today's big deal. and today's big deal edward harrison and myself are discussing the true identity of the man behind the mask his name is done to look so toshi nakamoto. yes that's the noun the mystery the mythical legend the one who started bitcoin and the explosion of crypto currencies has been revealed now newsweek broke the strange story of the possible father of bitcoin as so toshi nakamoto nakamoto is a japanese american man who for all of the speculation of mystery surrounding his identity lives in temple city california sometimes truth is stranger than fiction ed bring us up to speed on mr. what's the story what's the deal do you give
9:53 am
a full this is the interesting bit is people been going on these wild goose chases looking after who the founder is and so what was it we're right. or etc and they were pointed at various people you know a professor. of economics or technology here and there and so forth when the founder of the big quote was so tall she. needed it to be the new it was his name and the most. interesting thing about this story is that you know he actually was hiding in plain sight for all of this so the question is you know what you know why did he do it from all for all intents and purposes for what we know about his profile he did distrust of government and government intervention etc you know all of the things that people. very much
9:54 am
involved in the because world. he he himself had and that's why he created the currency as he did it was a little bit about his academic background he has to be a strong programmer i assume. technical skills he actually worked in top secret information defense contractor and just in general he is you know his brothers you know one of the smartest guys in the room so obviously he is the sort of person who could create it because it's seems like and now we talk a lot about that going on the show as everyone knows he enjoys the show but does this profile of nakamoto give any insight into big question itself and those who see alternatives to regular currencies that we have today you know paper money etc you know the way i look at it is let's look at people like tim berners lee who started the internet he was one of the what people call the father of the internet think of the toshiba not the moto in the i think more. and you know
9:55 am
it's bigger than the one individual tim berners lee people still look at him as the father of the internet but it grew and multiplied and as i've said before we've talked about this you know the internet went through a bubble from where incredibly bad things happened a lot of companies were destroyed the entire industry itself the technology industry went through a dearth of capital you know capital came away from from the technology industry and in this happened for you know good for five years but it came back the internet only got bigger and in a new sort of when people were talking about web two point zero right we saw all those companies like facebook. you know and so forth and so on i think a time sucks that now our. wall may not be so shiny it was profitable for the tech world now do you think that the emergence of this founder has going to have any you know substantial impact on big quite
9:56 am
a. currencies in general we only have thirty seconds so i don't i think that what's going to have an impact is shaking because a reduction of marginal players who do not have the controls in the systems necessary and you know more professionalization of the twenty years are around options one of the ones that would have had the controls they said but we see that that's not the kids can trust no one would know how to start i think you have your wonderful that's all for now but you can see all segments featured in today's show on you tube and you tube dot com slash boom bust our t. also love hearing from you check out our facebook page facebook dot com slash boom bust our t. please tweet at us at erin aid at edward h. from all of us here at boom bust thank you so much for watching and catch you next time tell.
