2:02 pm
have to i went back and russia only one week now for the russian speaking population in ukraine south. before crimea was side sealed and delivered to russia president putin lashed out at ukraine's new leadership russia strives to be on good terms with its eastern neighbor but putin made it clear that the far right radicals calling the shots in the interim government of the people moscow wants to talk to the president also hit out at the u.s. and europe for supporting me are people saying their actions have crossed the line also who carried out the coup in ukraine you nazis nationalists and the anti semites and they still define the country's political agenda it's clear that there is no legitimate executive power in ukraine right now there is no one to negotiate with washington slapped further sanctions on moscow over crimea this week the u.s. says it's supposed to punish those who threaten ukraine's integrity however it
2:03 pm
appears some of those targeted have nothing to do with ukraine but instead all belong to the president's judo club you don't need to go he's a businessman who back in the eight fold of the club where putin was trading brothers arcadia boris rotenberg they're also businessmen and members of that same club you know dick of all chick who is the co-founder of the rossiya bag also one of the judo clubs for others that's for his bank it's also been sanctioned by washington which inspired the russian president to open an account and have his salary paid there. regarding this being as far as i understand this is a middle sized and i personally don't have an account in it but i will definitely opened one on monday well brussels is also weighed into adding more names to its black list of russian officials in both the e.u. and the us of threatening restrictions against the russian economy as well in case of any escalation italy's foreign minister has warned that sanctions against moscow
2:04 pm
actually hit europe itself it looks like most of the e.u. governments beg to differ and it's a commentator adam says it's actually become a habit in europe to blame moscow. traditionally russia is accused because that's the vision that many politicians inherited from the times of the cold war but in this situation europe is profoundly an economic crisis and for europe in launching towards ukraine was a victory they hoped to bring to the electorate before the european elections but of course it failed because it wasn't realistic while it was largely voluntary based on sound dreams and political ambition so when the reality came and you had a car which took a step which was the only possible step we see now the same steps to a new leaders because economically you can't integrate the country of forty five million people with thirty million dead overnight so it is a traditional it pros rekers europe still is needed it's needed of this image of
2:05 pm
anime are fresh and bare because it's much easier to talk about the situation of conflict and crisis created by russia is meant to resolve the problem of twenty five million off european unemployed. russians move to incorporate crimea has triggered a verbal fight in the un security council where the u.s. envoy attacked the russian ambassador the rating moscow and going as far as calling it a thief. russia is known for its literary greatness and what you just heard from the russian ambassador showed more imagination than tolstoy or chekhov a thief can steal property but that does not confer the right of ownership on the thief. during our discussions today some of my colleagues used excessive language particularly the us ambassador ms power who started by mentioning tolstoy and chekhov but ended at the level of the tabloids such insults concerning russians are absolutely unacceptable that should be clear to them is that if the u.s.
2:06 pm
delegation expects to cooperate with russia in the security council on other issues in the future. well for more on the situation in crimea and the international tensions it's causing let's talk to journalist christine stone she was also an observer at ukraine's two thousand and six parliamentary elections christine what do you make of that referendum then in crimea many are saying that it was forced by russia and it is illegitimate would you say that is fair. western media made all sorts of attempts. to try to show that it was forced on people and they had a lot of journalists in crimea while it was actually happening and because hand and with that best endeavors it was very very difficult to show that anyone was being forced to do anything saying no as being a legitimate i think with the two thousand and ten well cool. decision on
2:07 pm
kosovo which said that. there were no international sector rules on such things and in any sort of question could be oust and there was nothing wrong with international if the result came out they have done in crime in so i think it's very difficult for them to use international law. in this particular situation and your opinion should be shared by one or two other world leaders no indeed how many cars are in the prison of afghanistan he said that he has every right for self-determination do you think we'll see all the problems figures now speaking. i think there have to be the usual suspects. or take her and make her regular career for instance but in fact surely the problem is that crimea is not russia are they not going to rest recognize russia maybe they will or at least the hostile elements in the new one united states will sort of treat it like they treated the
2:08 pm
states in the in the same time and sort of knowledge various aspects to crimean independence like going bad or sending delegations there maybe they will you know still on paper pretend to treat it as though it's great but i think in a lot of people will just accept what was at the end what christine is the government in kiev regarded as legitimate. well well. regarded as legitimate because they want the jetsam. and as long as it's there and they can get away with it they will do so maybe the presidential election in in may help them a little bit if someone slightly more sort our blair is elected to the presidency. but i think it's just just purely a sort of post-modern decision that is what they want and that is what they will accept. and with the current tensions in the country do you think
2:09 pm
a presidential election will have a positive effect bearing in mind those people who serve against what's happening here in the east of the country. well the people in the east are problematic in the sense that they they certainly don't seem to be prepared to accept which as we've seen in recent days is not the president the problem isn't the people go out who were and therefore were trying to demonstrations he managed to put on in my are more difficult because people disappear in the week and they go out whether they can sustain and. become problematic we will see when the. campaign starts really good to talk to you christine thank you very much of the christian story journalism observer at ukraine's two thousand and six parliamentary elections law if you're not international thank you for your time your thoughts. to spain now what started off as a peaceful rally is seeing fowles march to madrid from all across the country
2:10 pm
turned into violence on the streets of the capital protestors are angry at staggering unemployment rates the longer it was thirty cuts attacked police it ended in dozens of injuries and arrests across one ecosystem of witnessed the clashes. it was a peaceful protest rally throughout basically the entire time until the end when it was coming to an end and then suddenly a group of young radical basters with their face covered started throwing stones at the police the police had a perimeter there they started brushing the protesters away from it and then we've seen firecrackers being fired at the police and reportedly rubber bullets being fired back as a result there are injuries on both sides have been actually following these protesters for peace now and everyone that i spoke to in specially the older protesters they told me that there may be some problems with the police money comes to the younger professors the younger activists they did expect some sort of problems put happen and apparently that's what's happened here or sean lee critical
2:11 pm
against the government's policies specially economic policy is that the spanish economy is going through severe problems unemployment stands at around twenty six percent which means that the only other e.u. state with more serious problems in that sense is greece after greece comes spain but when it comes to the youth fifty percent around fifty percent of all the youth in spain don't have a job also around two million spaniards are really dependent on state pensions and food. banks and so on which is also applying pressure on the economy at same time of the troika go to the international creditors and brussels they are calling for more job cuts for more reductions of salaries and at the same time they're not promising any improvement in the economy economy in the next four years which obviously is only aggravating the situation and he's even making these thousands of
2:12 pm
people more angry. well before the protests as ended up in madrid they had covered hundreds of kilometers on foot on the so-called mulch of dignity that had a chance to move with the people. told him why they felt they had to of the take this long journey. that was the closer why are you here. why am i here i'm sick of this government with all the promises they never fulfill they said they were going to create more jobs and lower the taxes but it's a lie instead unemployment rolls from four to six million this is the only way we can fight back. or exhausted after twelve days of walking it's cold at night and during the day we're in high spirits we have to put an end to these savage policies . what cause you to take part in this march there are too many reasons my sons have to work every day from eight in the morning to five in the evening only for four
2:13 pm
hundred euros per month also i'm a teacher and i know what cuts in the public sector mean all these are the actions this is insane i'm marching to madrid because i can't walk to believe we must stop them and the troika. that's a debate is shared by many in the country and earlier i spoke to writer activist clara velvety who says people have to take part in protests to let the government know it cold get away with its policies. for one day we stop our protest in our occupations that would take everything away from us have already taken a lot everything else and it's our responsibility to our grandchildren to to at least try to stop at least to try to keep some of what our grandparents records but i think it's our responsibility in course that those who are because we see we haven't taken everything else away like they maybe we like doing. the country's going to get out of that hasn't it and surely that's something your future grandchildren have got to think about as well what is the alternative apart from
2:14 pm
these methods the debt which is we've got to pay the debt i mean that's a look at argentina in stopping its debt and if it got out of this situation if it were a silly thing part of the debt the part of they think makes sense because most of the debt is not our debt is because it belongs to the banks so i think that vicious stop taking our tax money to pay their debt. still to come on the program bridges which is probably vote overwhelmingly to break away from rome what happened next but pinioning lloyd after a short break. with . science technology innovation all the least of elements from around russia we've got the future covered.
2:15 pm
i marinate and join me. for india in park and. carry interview and much. only on been passed and. we speak your language. programs and documentaries in spanish what matters to you. use the alternative angle stories. here. the spanish. visit.

turkey's prime minister has said the country's armed forces have downed a syrian plane in the border region where rebels have been battling president assad's forces turkey says it shot down the jet by two rockets as the war plane have violated its airspace. damascus of a heavy response while syria accuses neighbor of flagrant aggression claiming it was flying over syrian territory. in syria. meaning ukraine's eastern regions are refusing to recognize the new leadership in kiev taking to the streets in defiance of the interim government the city of donetsk has become the flashpoint of pro russian protests with a referendum on independence from ukraine demonstrators are accusing the youth leaders in kiev of neo nazi leanings and it's a similar mood in many other cities in neighboring regions people there are insisting the else did president yet a code which is still the legitimate leader and some according to follow the example of crimea a join russia run
2:17 pm
a deal reports from the city of donetsk which is actually running right now. thousands of people have taken to the streets again this weekend in donetsk and demonstrations across the city this weekend in support of president victory on a covert she was ousted by the coup imposed government in kiev the city square is littered with banners and posters in support of as well as slogans being chanted for viktor to come home the main focal point of the demonstrations over the past few weeks has been with regards to a referendum for the region and this is continued this weekend with a large portions of the demonstrations marching on the regional administrative buildings to demand a referendum for the region of the bass of which donetsk is a part of so it seems that with crimean referendum last weekend seeing them join the russian federation this week the people here seem to be inspired by that and the demonstrations have really got a momentum here and they believe referendums may may become a reality but the people here insist that this is not just because the ethnic russian or speak russian there's also economic reasons behind this where they feel that moving closer to russia they already have many business links with makes more
2:18 pm
sense and lanky have taken closer to the e.u. who has countries as seen some severe economic hardship in recent years i do believe that. economically this russia will be much better for us it was ukraine russia and bella reuss we own brothers we want to be together and not divided and told how we should live and what we should do by the e.u. and america i'm so the people here are saying that not only did they not recognize our choose the government in kiev but the victory on a covert she's still diligence in the present of the country maybe he can be the man to come back to don bass which is his local region and take dumbass back to russia. bank robberies office raids in crime racket seem to be the new reality in ukraine where security forces are struggling to maintain control of radicals i. will these are the pictures from ukraine's major bulk of producing plant which was stormed this week by all men many of them are believed to be the so-called my dad feted some suggest it was an attempt by
2:19 pm
shareholders to seize the stock which is the say police appeared at the same but did nothing to intervene. well that might be understandable after seeing a video like this one police in the lead coming under attack from radicals well simply walking down the street another exhibit there was an attempt to rob a bank think you have but the group was allowed to walk free when the internet the cuban general seems have little understanding of the events in the country at the moment. and in each situation. it's. about the bank robbery a criminal investigation is underway. the deadly disease known as has been claiming dozens of lives in southern guinea for the last month and
2:20 pm
a half and fears of an epidemic of highly contagious virus is thought to spread across the border more details on the. dot com. also there are international search efforts continue to try to solve the disappearance of a malaysia airlines flight with the spotting of new objects in the ocean it's hoped fresh. details just a click away. we're returning to ukraine the radical. group has registered as a political party and announce its leader will be running for president take a closer look at the new leadership there in the country and those rising to power that. literally involving the man in a beige coat is a deputy of ukraine's new parliament here he is representing the country's information and media committing to sign the resignation i tell you he talks to the head of ukraine's national t.v. channel first well now the form has been telling you sit and sign your resignation
2:21 pm
shut up and take your hands off me like a told you have to show resistance are the rudder deputies stepped in and we're telling you that this is the paper you will sign your resignation with all that just because he's channel broadcast the russian president's address on crimea sign it's your russians going to buy me a grainy and you are not real grainy and. bigger midhurst in turn is a member of ukraine's ultra nationalists a border party condemned by the european parliament back in two thousand and twelve for it's racism anti semitism and xenophobia it grew up from the social national party which has a swastika like logo to the members of these and other far right parties form a major part of ukraine's new political face their methods are becoming the
2:22 pm
country's new political language the jesus whoever they are these is how many of the country's politicians do business today you want to take my gun you come here and take it all enjoying their freedom and bring them to justice. on the cartloads some other international news stories in brief for you know world updates in germany russia police brutally clash with protesters gathered on what a bird's main squares to show the area over police and state repression organizers accuse officers of obtaining d.n.a. from individuals by force as part of the fight for methley what's last year just hours after more files in the. we just took to the streets of the german capital and were dispersed by police. three people to be killed in a fresh wave of body clashes of venezuela bringing the total death toll of the protests to thirty four rest has been raging for weeks and the soaring inflation of
2:23 pm
critics. and activists accusing the authorities of stifling your position wherever president the duras government claims the protests backed by washington and radical groups. crimea's residents are the only europeans protecting their right to self-determination with referendums in both scotland and spades catalonia planned for later this year this week venetians joined the club voting to break away from italy he said nine percent that's around two million people were in favor of their province going it alone the referendum was by no means binding and is not recognised by road but the numbers alone make an impressive political statement a spokesman for the independence movement of the vico bazaar t. says people grow tired of the economic slowdown and therefore hungry for change. but i mean says pretty much as we now know bennett on the. triangle. is sure our. hole is well above six of us and asia only seventy percent so he's the one of the
2:24 pm
strongest fiscal pressures in the war and by creating a new lease on the state we would use the fiscal clash for all the citizens there's also this all comes at a very interesting time doesn't it bearing in mind crimea through a referendum it's now become part more hours if they want and we happen that. what happened there in crimea was that encouraged do you think of the separatist movements now from the well yes absolutely yes i mean our people were looking for the season of all south of the nation whether to go back. to. the drawing the rush and they decide they overwhelmingly toward going. and i think. the principles of the nation evolves and the waltons that we have been growing much in cost by because i mean of about with more news for you know just over half an hour from now in the meantime the future of international law and how it's being undermined in the twenty first century is that a boy can't get to the bottom of that in the worlds apart so after the break.
2:25 pm
quite often countries rich in natural resources are the poorest africa's a colony it's a colony of the big corporations it's a colony of someone's home leaders who are under the thumbs of the big corporations so they have to beg from the world bank's development of social programs goes to pay back debts for the country is drowning under the amount of debt that they did and so every year they would borrow money. and there we use that same amount of money to pay back oh that's going to lead to money really don't. the wages of debt. relief.
2:26 pm
and then on the world can lead to nato. say sorry.
2:27 pm
hello and welcome to worlds apart the crimean referendum has helped to reopen the cold case off territorial integrity versus self-determination with the cost of a president now being relied on by russia and dismissed by the west as it once again a case of making a right while to discuss that i'm now joined by alexander popovich a professor at the war university in a strange way they also are of the book creating new states professor paul commish thank you very much for appearing on the show you're most welcome now their recent referendum in crimea. he has to revive this whole debate about legitimacy or illegitimacy of secession is movements and we hear various sides accusing each other of violating international law but as far as i understand the law itself is
2:28 pm
far from being settled on this issue here isn't it well not being a law i should say that i don't think there is international law it's in session so any appeal to international law is appeal to judgments or principles none of which really deal it's a says it's all about political statements after all and scoring political points and making political rhetoric essentially that's what i think and it's not only my opinion quite a number of international lawyers also believe that secession is not regulated by international law and that consequently any statement that we make about secession is a political statement primarily now given that they've seen quite a few secessionist movement since the late one nine hundred eighty s. why do you think the law is so on big is so vague on this issue isn't it because this ambiguity here leaves plenty of loopholes for political manipulation by you
2:29 pm
know all sides involved you can put it that way but i think that the answer is relatively simple states want to preserve their territory that is one of them main functions and consequently any attempt to regulate how you take away territory from a particular state is going to be controversial because very few states are ready voluntarily to give up territory professor puffer she just sad that the states are not really eager to you allow part of their territories go independent but a number of countries have been quietly. active in supporting independence movements in other states i wonder how all. international politics drive secessionist movements is it possible in this day and age to find a truly independent independence movement that would be free of geopolitics will it
2:30 pm
one lesson that every session is movement has learned by now is that if you do not have agreement of your whole state of your state from each receding if you don't have agreement to gain independence from that then you need an outside sponsor there are there are no suspicions no successful secessions which. doll to knowledge side sponsor now given that whenever you have a secessionist movement which is serious about gaining independence seceding they will seek an international sponsor and often they will gain it sometimes they don't gain international sponsors and in most cases they don't succeed in gaining independence so there is a dynamic which is relatively unexplored but we are at least aware that you cannot successfully cede the dollar than international response and now this dynamic as you said it may be unexplored but i think it's used quite often in
2:31 pm
more than geopolitics now in the absence of clear legal guidelines arguments for or against a sessions are often couched in moral terms and morality is a bit like beauty it's in the eye of the beholder i guess you can make a moral case both for and against any session moment right this is true not only one couldn't really say strictly speaking that morality is an diaby hold a lot of people who disagree with that but when you look at the scholarly on secession and on more knowledge of secession you will find indeed very different theories and sometimes contradictory theories. morally to regulate says. mission so given the variety of these theories that we have you can normally have a moral argument for or against ization which will be uncontested and one of the
2:32 pm
reasons very simple reason for all that is that secessions are not morally veins in other words these are political phenomena and therefore they have of their own political dynamic then not regulated strictly speaking by mortality we attempt to do so but we won't ever think able we won't be able to do regulated by moral principle now i don't want to appear cynical but i think geopolitics human deaths have long been used as a moral argument and unfortunately the more daft there are the stronger seems to be the argument you mentioned in one of your public lectures that up to eighty percent of the session is movement involve some form of violence and i wonder if this city towards weiland is a direct result of the ambiguity of the law when the ambiguity is in fact something that incentivises this while and which could later be used to legitimize a succession is movement this is an excellent point in quite
2:33 pm
a number of scholars point out that secessionist movements often if they are faced with opposition with. rejection by the whole state are in fact motivated to use violence in order to provoke are the moral outrage in outside states or to where the dom the enemy in other words violence is a useful instrument when you cannot achieve your aims by other means now i don't think that that could be avoided by legal regulation. feeling that the one way of resolving this issue is to make terry. torrie less valuable so that the whole states would be more inclined to give up territory when there is a very strong secessionist woman that i think that would be a more elegant solution to these problems and we have such solutions for example in
2:34 pm
scotland we might have a solution through referendum been viewed of any while and so there are peaceful solutions to suspicions conflicts and i think we should really force the dollars instead of trying to find some sort of legal regulation now speaking about bloodshed and excessive bloodshed i think that. this argument was used as part of the justification for cost of us independence and i think it was also used later by western politicians to explain why it cost the was such a unique case and why it shouldn't be used as an international precedent but given the statistics that you cite in your lecture that is eighty percent of secession is no meant being accompanied by some form of violence it seems that causes us case is not that special after all that that's correct and the the argument that costs are all has produced extraordinary. amounts of civilian deaths in that
2:35 pm
itself justifies independence of course or is bored empirically very difficult to uphold because the question there arises. how many dates sufficient for him to bend it in other words do what do you compare it with and then you compare it to. kinds of successful secession such as secession or bungle addition nine hundred seventy one which had many more the wall than costs are all and was indeed the priesthood and if you want for for a successful secession we can see that there are many pre-sentence of course saw both in terms of violence and in terms of successful society. so that coarser is in no way unique however this is not the point it's really not the statement about uniqueness of course or is really not a point about the history of secession it's rather
2:36 pm
a point that the governments which are arguing that this is unique case where they're basically saying we are not going to support secessionist movements of this kind so please don't take us as encouraging secessionist movements and that you know this might be a way of saying that but it's not a very effective way of saying that it's secessionist movements are not going to listen to this kind of rhetoric well i think it's also very political statement saying that what you do is ride by the fact the same type of rules were to be applied to your opponent while they would be a legitimate i think we already we just discussed how politics is involved in the session it's moments but i think it also plays a very significant role and whether this state new state is recognized after the fact of secession from the only research i wonder how arbitrary or south serving that recognition process really is will there is
2:37 pm
a general theory of international relations which is often called realism or it isn't which says that states are selfish and behaving in self-interest in the way and older this is a consistent theory there are many others it's difficult to. deny that the states have their own interests and they these interests change of course but they will act on those perceived interests that then a moment of time so it's some point they would support a succession is moment to some point it wouldn't depending on the circumstances so it's a very difficult. situation in which you you want to say all this states will always support. secessionism and another will not and i've been looking at this problem and my very very general and very fuzzy impression is that if you are looking at states which do not support secession only people's republic of
2:38 pm
china is consistent in not supporting secessionist movements and who else the other states which profess not to support in fact from time to time do so in terms of consistency when it comes to support of secessionist movements you can find very much consistency especially over longer periods of time now the un friends the relations declaration from the nineteen seventies in shrines the principle of noninterference in the states internal and external affairs and since there is nothing that explicitly bans declaration of independence i wonder if it could be argued that this whole process of recognition or denying recognition represents a form of interference because you know that an interference after all could be could have very far reaching consequences and one example i could provide is an example of yugoslavia where the immediate recognition of bosnia as and gracious the
2:39 pm
sessions by the west. very bloody and very for track to the war will the question of course arises towards extent recognition itself is a cause of these these kinds of blood the blood even seeds but surely there is an encouragement by sound by sound power is involved i mean if you know you mention sponsorship international sponsorship later on this is also a form of international political sponsorship that's correct now when it comes to the case of bosnia and herzegovina and some some former yugoslav republics. the minimal argument that i think one can violence is that mission of these states or promise of recognition of the states. i have discovered them from trying to resolve ai internal and external conflicts peacefully because they the governments the new government's position is governments knew that they're going to get recognition so
2:40 pm
there are norms that tall motivated to negotiate down minorities or negotiate via the other secession is groups to be deemed these states and the this is quite obvious in case of bosnia and herzegovina where the us has supported one faction v d in these states because of that section they believe that the time group presents though that recognition may have made it one sided but it has actually made the other side quite angry and as we know the war has continued after all but we have to take a very short break now when we come back the crimean referendum has resurrected a day could all rationale for justifying kosovo's independence if it was so let it out of baghdad why is it illegitimate now that's coming out in a few moments here on the wall the part.
2:41 pm
of the. economic down in the final. days the deal and the rest of life it's a unique take it will be a prickly. i'd
2:42 pm
love to see some polling done in the western european countries on a bailout package for ukraine at this point in time i don't think you would like to see the results i don't think washington would like to see the results.
2:43 pm
welcome back to worlds apart or we are discussing the practice of the session as moments of alexander popovich a professor at mcquarrie university in australia i mean the author of the book creating new states professor puffer fish before we go into comparing cost of and crimea let me ask you this western countries have long claimed that casa was a unique case but legally speaking can you really make a solid legal case about uniqueness isn't the whole purpose of the law to develop a set of rules that will be applied without exception well those governments or lawyers who are arguing about uniqueness of course are and by the way there are not very many lawyers who would do that. unless they have to represent governments
2:44 pm
the those who are doing that are really not trying to say anything about law on the contrary i think if you argue that causally is unique you are basically saying that there is no law of secession and no law of independence and this is an extraordinary case which is outside of legal regulation and i think that's the point they want to make it's not did it's illegal but the rather that it's so extraordinary that it's beyond the illegal regulation but in terms of legal precedent you cannot find. a legal person in a legal judgment or legal principle which would justify only costs or and no other secession i mean that's simply not possible and as i mentioned there are precision still cause when one of the clearest pieces than sees is suspicion of mungo those from pakistan in one hundred seventy one. was not opposed by. the
2:45 pm
united states at the time which was the united states was engaged in vietnam war at the time but that was a suspicion which was enabled by incursion invasion of the indian army and defeat of the. on embodying the anon he said it was in a sense similar to the whole process in case of in case of course or and also the find that often the recognition came very quickly from the l.-i first from india and then from the allies of india and then u.k. also came in and australia so this was a clear cut case of officer session which was preceded by a military invasion intervention by another state and the have the very similar case in case of course going back to the inconsistency of the cost of our uniqueness argument i think it's underscored by the fact of how promptly be tables
2:46 pm
have turned since two thousand and eight i mean back then it was western powers who used humanitarian reasons they're right time a nation and the suffering of refugees as reasons for supporting the independence of course sarabande russia as you know stood on territorial integrity and sovereignty but. this time around in the case of crimea region we see a complete reversal of these positions i wonder from your point of view how different these two cases are will the major difference to us who start this is issue is the absence of violets and this is an extraordinary case in crimea is that we do have a sort of let's say he didn't military intervention often i would side which doesn't consider this is still to be an outsider because it had it had its own military on the territory so we have the but we have no resistance no wall and
2:47 pm
snore attempt to use violence or very little while and just after the problem ation of independence so we feel look at the history of secessions this would be highly unusual and it shows that the board side. ukraine and the russia have in fact a tacit agreement that while in sworn solve anything their resistance to this would not have prevented secession would not have really done anything but just lead to deaths of people so in a sense we have this i think quite the rational calculation i want to professor if russia could really advance this case of crimea being a special case and not only because there is very little violence on the ground but also you know there are historical ties that go back for centuries there were some legal irregularities in a way nikita khrushchev handed crimea over to your crane and you know back then he
2:48 pm
strongly he had no reasons to believe that it would ever be. beyond moscow's control i wonder if that could be used as a as a legal rationale to justify russia's actions in crimea you could you should there's a political justification and has been used there is no legal standing for this kind of argument because if used if you try doing that then makes a cool could claim takes us any time takes this was taken away legally from mexico so in the end there are some people in need but i think there may be encourage and get not that's the saddest moment here. i hope not some people accuse me of doing that but i really not suggesting anything i'm simply saying look if you start using these arguments then you'll find all over the world including the united states a number of irregularities of this kind so i don't think there's a legal i think this is exactly what the experts were saying back in two thousand
2:49 pm
and eight when the western rationale for corso was advanced that you know that was essentially open a pandora's box not only in europe but all around the world and i think this is what we're seeing happening right well that's that's certainly true but won't i think when a cultural issue. happening what possibly the policy makers were thinking that since bundle of ash was forgotten very quickly in a few years the whole issue of legality normally gathered the whole thing simply disappeared except in scholarly literature they were hoping that the whole thing of it because some of it will disappear as an issue however it didn't disappear and i don't think it's build its appeal. because there are other parts of europe which would want to secede and particularly got the lonely and scotland so these. cases we have a growth of secessionist movements and therefore when you have a one successful one and success one unfortunately through the use of force as in
2:50 pm
as in the causal you will real serve as an example or encouragement to others especially when whatever you say in addition and of course crimea might this will serve as an encouragement to others because they will see ok if they did it we can do it as well it's a perfectly normal political thinking i think it is nothing extraordinary about that now are speaking about crimea russia made it clear that it considers the crimean case to be close to president putin just signed an executive order solidifying crimea joining russia but what is not a done deal is international recognition of crimea's new status and western countries have already made it clear that they are not going to recognize it any time soon i wonder though. if international recognition in this case matters at all because as part of russia supposedly a crimea wouldn't have to suffer some of the discrimination that ogg are recognized
2:51 pm
was estates suffered in the past i guess you know just the fact of it joining russia will shield it from many of those and negative consequences that's probably true and that might have been a dish another reason for secession is. politicians in crimea who argue for such a quick incorporation into russia because that provided them protection which they would otherwise as a small state not have and it provided of course recall mission in so far as they are part of a functioning state so the idea that you find yourself a powerful sponsor and become part of that as a state is not a very frequent phenomena in the session is the partly because there are not many sponsors who want to take this the parts of territory in the incorporate in into there because there's too too heavy cost and of course i think it will be costly in
2:52 pm
terms of the costs of incorporation but given that the russian federation can afford that kind of course i don't think it's it's a major issue in this case but it is a particularly interesting case because it provided a very quick as it's a secessionist outcome and then incorporation in a in a large and powerful state and some secessionist movements might think that this is really the way to go all except of course as i said there will be very very few sponsors well one such example would be for example the case of northern cyprus it's been thirty our forty rather years since the turkish invasion and northern cyprus is not formally part of turkey but defacto it is and as far as i know turkish cypriots have been developing you know pretty rapidly if and notwithstanding the fact that no other country apart from turkey recognised them
2:53 pm
formally now the northern cyprus is also interesting because there are significant segments of the cypriot population who would want to unite back the cyprus for the benefits of the human. the ship and turkey is not probably for some time to become a member of the cyprus is already a member so there is an attraction and this is a new element in secessionist movement and that is the attraction of the new because the brings infrastructural funds it brings investment so if you can get into a country of each is a member of the there are definite benefits and you can see that in case of the two new succession is movements the society should one in cut the loonie in one they are very strong on the retaining the membership in the you because that's considered to be a great prize for any state in europe professor profits what i find very curious is
2:54 pm
that you know countries and that or states that are outside of the european union really want to get in bed there are a number of countries like britain for example reach arrow would rather prefer to get out than free themselves from the e.u. since we have only a few minutes left international more has traditionally approached the session is conflicts conflicts through the a fact if controlled auction so essentially doesn't mean whether the session is movement was legitimate from the very beginning what means is who is calling the shots at the end and i wonder if this is in this sense any secession movement is essentially a case of might making it right well you can you can say so. but no secessionist movement is successful a widespread mobilization of population in other words you have to get people to vote for you or to support you and that is an exercise of political skill and
2:55 pm
political might but it's really not an exercise of course if so secessionist moment like. if you want international relations are not governed by the the sheer size. also cause. it is a question of the ability to politically mobilize the population and that of course the skill to of the population has grievances so you are as a suspicion is movement you're basically exploiting people's grievances to convince them that they need to separate states of their own so it's not quite. the shia mights deciding however if you have a very powerful state which is opposing you'll be in the question of who has more military skills all who who sponsor have you got becomes a crucial and they say allegedly right that's about race me if we are back to what
2:56 pm
we started from that when it comes to secession what matters is not so much the law but rather politics i guess we have to leave it there because we're running out of time but i really appreciate your being on the show thank you and to our viewers keep the conversation going on our twitter you tube and facebook pages and i hope to see you again same place same time here and while the part. we wanted to create a realistic movie that would represent life that would depicts life as it really is .

moscow and crimea celebrate their reunion as the republican officially becomes part of russia parts on the heels of voting to leave ukraine people on a russian bank gets a new high profile club after being hit by fresh u.s. sanctions. as a middle flight and i personally don't have an account in it but i will definitely open one on monday president putin says he wants to get his salary on that bag because washington and brussels add more russians to a list of those sanctioned by visa bans and asset freezes the spot not all of them being connected with the crisis in ukraine. i. read one hundred people injured and dozens of arrested in madrid as an anti
3:01 pm
a sturdy march ends in violence after thousands converge on the capital from all across the country. but an attack in the past seven days top stories and the latest developments this. the weekly international moscow in crimea have celebrated their reunion after the peninsula broke away from ukraine to become part of russia the skies were lit up by thunderous fireworks both for the russian capital simferopol which is the main city of crimea crowds gather there to watch the spectacular show. to celebrate. watching the one there while there we have finally a russia at last a long time dream has come to nothing. it's our holiday we're celebrating the end of the geishas with historic margin and. i think all craniums i have
3:02 pm
they went back in russia only one week now for the russian speaking population in ukraine south. before crimea was sawin the sealed and delivered to russia president putin lashed out at ukraine's new leadership russia strives to be on good terms with its east a neighbor but hooted made it very clear that the far right radicals calling the shots in the interim government of the sort of people moscow wants to talk to the president also hit out at the u.s. and europe for supporting me are people saying their actions have crossed the line but also who carried out a coup in ukraine. sees nationalists an anti semite and they still define the country's political agenda. it's clear that there is no legitimate executive power in a crane right now there is no one to negotiate with. washington step further sanctions on moscow over crimea this week the u.s.
3:03 pm
says it's supposed to punish those who threaten ukraine's integrity however it appears that some of those targeted have nothing to do with ukraine but instead all belong to the president's judo club and i need to go he's a businessman who back in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight founded the club where putin was training boris arkadi and boris rotenberg their story arc he wrote about that also businessmen are members of that same club and u.t. vulture key is the co owner of the bank also one of the judo clubs founders and as for his bank it's also been sanctioned by washington which inspired the russian president opened an account and have his salary paid there regarding this as far as i understand this is a little slow and i personally don't have an account in it but i will definitely opened one on monday. well brussels is also weighed in adding more names to its black list to russian officials and both the e.u. and the us are threatening restrictions against the russian economy as well in case
3:04 pm
of any escalation if these foreign minister has warned sanctions against moscow actually it europe itself it looks like most of the e.u. governments beg to differ this from commentator and says it's actually become a habit in europe to blame. traditionally russia is accused because that's the vision that many politicians inherited from the times of the cold war about invest situation europe is profoundly an economic crises and for europe enlarging towards ukraine was a victory they hope to bring to the electorate before the european elections but of course it failed because it wasn't realistic while it was largely voluntary based on sound dreams and political ambition so when the reality came and you had a car which took a step which was the only possible step we see now the same steps to a new leaders recurse economically you can't integrate the country of forty five million people without a million dead overnight so it is
3:05 pm
a traditional approach because europe still is needed it's needed of this image of anime are fresh and bare because it's much easier to talk about the situation of conflict and crisis created by russia is meant to resolve the problem of twenty five million of european unemployed. russia's move to incorporate crimea is triggered a verbal fight in the un security council where the u.s. envoy attacked the russian ambassador to moscow and going as far as calling it a thief. russia is known for its literary greatness and what you just heard from the russian ambassador showed more imagination than tolstoy or chekhov a thief can steal property but that does not confer the right of ownership on the thief. during our discussions today some of my colleagues used excessive language particularly the us ambassador ms power who started by mentioning tolstoy and chekhov but ended at the level of the tabloids such insults concerning russians are
3:06 pm
absolutely unacceptable that should be clear to them is that if the u.s. delegation expects to cooperate with russia in the security council on other issues in the future. many are claiming the crimean referendum was forced by russia and is therefore illegitimate but journalist christina started i spoke to earlier she was also an observer at ukraine's two thousand and six parliamentary elections thinks otherwise. western media made all sorts of attempts. to try to show that it was forced on people and they had a lot of journalists in crimea while it was actually happening and because hand and with their best endeavors it was very very difficult to show that anyone was being forced to do anything so no as for it being a legitimate i think we're calls back to the two thousand and ten well court decision on kosovo which said that there were no international sectoral rules on
3:07 pm
such things and in fact any sort of question could be asked and there was nothing particularly wrong in international law if the result came out as they have done in crimea so i think it's very difficult for them to use international law in this particular situation. to spain what started off as a peaceful rallies in fells and small to madrid from all across the country turned into violence on the streets of the capital protesters angry at stiring unemployment rates and ongoing austerity cuts attacked police it ended in dozens of injuries and arrests across europe is kind of witnessed the clashes. it was a peaceful protest rally throughout basically the entire time until the end when it was coming to an end and then suddenly a group of young a radical basters with their face covered started throwing stones at the police the police had a perimeter there they started brushing the protesters away from it and then we've
3:08 pm
seen firecrackers being fired at the police and reportedly rubber bullets being fired back as a result there are injuries on both sides we've been actually following these protesters for peace now and everyone that i spoke to in specially the older protesters they told me that there may be some problems with the police money comes to the younger protesters the younger activists they did expect some sort of problems could happen and apparently that's what's happened here or sean lee critical against the government's policies specially economic policy is that the spanish economy is going through severe problems unemployment stands at around twenty six percent which means that the only other e.u. state with the more serious problems in that sense is greece after greece comes spain but when it comes to the youth fifty percent around fifty percent of all the youth in spain don't have a job also around two million spaniards are really dependent on state pensions and
3:09 pm
food. banks and so on which is also applying pressure on the economy at same time of the troika go to the international creditors and brussels they are calling for more job cuts for more reductions of salaries and at the same time they're not promising any improvement to the economy economy in the next four years which obviously is only aggravating the situation and is even making these thousands of people more angry. well before the protests has ended up in madrid they had covered hundreds of kilometers on for the so-called march dignity igor had a chance to rule. with people who told him why they felt they had to undertake this long journey. hello sir why are you here. why am i here i'm sick of this government with all the promises they never fulfilled they said they were going to create more jobs and lower the taxes but
3:10 pm
it's a lie instead unemployment rolls from four to six million this is the only way we can fight back. or exhausted after twelve days of walking it's cold at night and during the day we're in high spirits and we have to put men to these savage policies. what cause you to take part in this march there are too many reasons my sons have to work every day from eight in the morning to five in the evening only for four hundred euros per month also i'm a teacher and i know what cuts in the public sector mean all these of actions this is insane i'm marching to madrid because i can't walk to believe we must stop them and the troika well that sentiment is shared by many in the country earlier i spoke to writer and activist klara verde who says people have to take part in protests to let the government know it's called get away with its policies. for one day we stop our protest in our missions that would take everything away from us very taken
3:11 pm
a lot everything else and it's our responsibility to our grandchildren to to at least try to stop at least to try to keep some of what our grandparents records but i think it's our responsibility in course it does work because we see we haven't taken everything else away like they maybe they really like doing. the country's going to get out of that hasn't it and surely that's something your future grandchildren have got to think about as well what is the alternative apart from these methods the debt which as we have to pay the debt i mean that's a look at argentina stopping its debt and it got out of the situation if it were actually being part of the debt the part of they think makes sense because most of the debt is not our debt is because it belongs to the banks so i think that they should stop taking our tax money to pay their debt. on international live here most go still to come in the program bridges it's in his britches province votes

3:14 pm
bloody coup one of the country's opposition leaders and the interim prime minister arseniy yatsenyuk took to the stage many times to promise people radical changes but since taking power he's backtracked on many of those promises of his reign acosta reports. the self-proclaimed governments in kiev gains a power banking on people's frustration over the collapse deal. yet if the e.u. agreement is not signs they are calling to article one one one of the criminal code the president will get ten to fifteen years behind it. however later i've seen you get to newcastle backtrack on this my pleasure to pick up with because we postponed signing the economic section of this document due to concerns over the possible negative effects that entering the free trade area might have if the industrial regions. easier said than done apparently once you have to
3:15 pm
actually analyze all of the pros and cons looks like everyone said oh it's in what's being called the new governments in ukraine with contradictions and rein in supreme. we heard promises from kiev to join nato and get as many weapons from member countries asked possible a draft law on the resumption of the process of integration of ukraine internet zero has been filed and recorded provide the maximum possible material and technical assistance in the form of modern military hardware and armaments once again something he had to take back your security in order to keep ukraine undivided we've decided to keep a session to nato out of the agenda. what about all those promises to ban the russian language. yes
3:16 pm
i don't want the ukrainian youth to speak russian i want them to speak english i will make this my top priority i want them to travel to europe this is my assignment. new book no one is trying to take away your right to speak russian according to this law in all regions dominated by russian speakers russian should be a regional and de facto official language and it should have the same rights as the ukrainian language that was a quick quantity and in stark contrast with his previous convictions if these are regime for russians was announced for a few hours at one point. ukraine's national security and defense council took her decision to introduce a visa regime with russia only to be dismissed by gets a nuke the very next day. ukraine should not hurry with the injured using a visa regime with russia and this move must be mature after almost a month end office siyad salut has failed to show what he's capable of other than

threats which he did not follow through on and questions remain as to whether his long term policies will be as far as and as easy to take back as the ones we've seen so far marina koester of r c many in ukraine's eastern regions are refusing to recognize the new leadership in here have taken to the streets in defiance of the interim government several regional centers are engulfed in protests for the crowds accusing the new leaders in kiev of near nazi leanings many are insisting the ousted president had a code which is still a legitimate leader and some according to follow the example of crimea and hold a referendum on joining russia others pushing for federalism in ukraine with the mob for greater autonomy from here the city of donetsk has become one of the made flashpoints of pro russian protests thousands were rallying there earlier on saturday and today as well rather neil is there for r.t. . thousands of people have taken to the streets again this weekend in donetsk and
3:18 pm
demonstrations across the city this weekend in support of a president victory on a covert she was ousted by the could impose government in kiev at the city square is littered with banners and posters in support of unocal which as well as slogans being chanted for viktor to come home the main focal point of the demonstrations over the past few weeks has been with regards to a referendum for the region and this is continued this weekend with a large portions of the demonstrations marching on the regional administrative buildings to demand a referendum for the region of dumbass of which donetsk is a part of so it seems that with crimean referendum last weekend seeing them join the russian federation is one of the people here seem to be inspired by that and the demonstrations really have really got a momentum here and they believe referendums may may become a reality but the people here insist that this is not just because the russian or speak russian has also economic reasons behind this where they feel that moving closer to russia they already have many business links with makes more sense and lanky have taken closer to the e.u. who has countries as seen some severe economic hardship in recent years they do
3:19 pm
believe that to accomplish this russia will be a much better for us it was ukraine or russia and bella reuss we only brothers we want to be together and not divided and told how we should live and what we should do by the e.u. and america and i'm so the people here are saying that not only did they not recognize our choose the government in kiev but the video on a call which is still diligence in the present of the country maybe he can be the man to come back to don bass which is his local region and take dumbass back to russia bank robberies office raging crime record seem to be the new reality in ukraine where security forces a struggling to maintain control of radicals. i. i these are the pictures from the trade major producing pulp which was stalled this week by. an evil believed to be the so-called madame fighters some suggest it was the temp by shareholders to seize the stock when this is a police appeared at the same but did nothing to intervene. well that might be understandable after seeing

3:27 pm
people are actually willing to stick up for that right it is easy for schmucks like me on t.v. to tell you to go fight for your rights but when they're thumb cops at your door in black uniforms or a crack your skull in all forms a sense a tiny metal box of the spring in it many people are going to give in and give it up and actually takes an incredible amount of bravery to knowingly defy the law based on principle and that is why very few people do it and that is why over time in any society your rights freedoms are every want to call them are going to be eroded away tyranny happens because people like you and me are willing to pay a thousand dollars for our rights but that's just my opinion.

3:29 pm
for you to meet usually happens that when people talk about a project like this they have three basic questions about it with the how much does it costs where much time will it take to build. when will it break even though both i have the exact same but very solid and awfully convincing on so to all three of these questions i don't know. well recently it would be difficult to start any partnership with me when you begin at this kind of starting point of the war that's why i came to the conclusion that if i wanted to make something i should only rely on my own abilities brought up was a way used to be a factory instant petersburg that specialized in making space for space products back in the one nine hundred ninety s. i became one of the owners. oh good morning good morning. the whole of the year
3:30 pm
when i was making enough money to be able to afford to travel if i had plenty of time to relax during these trips but my heart had a burning desire to put this energy to good use. but first i want to create a model of ny times in petersburg if you're bored. when you sit down at the table that's when you really get your act science i realized this in petersburg wouldn't be enough if it would be too local too small it seemed to me that i could try to achieve something bigger with the idea of gradually it turned into the idea of creating a large scale model of russia. it's a joke an old school if you ask anybody in the streets the eight hundred metres is an enormous area in comparison to most apartments that have an average size of
3:31 pm
thirty to forty square metres this is the equivalent of twenty apartment that's very large pools of the good of that when we started installing things and i started making the first layouts if i was told that i couldn't fit in the whole country was that i or even i'm just a tallow destry. it frightened me it will to me and knock me off my feet box or get a guest with lunch to the got. here with i understand with certainty that a hundred square metres is insignificant and even a thousand won't help much but what might seem to remember what we were going to do here we wanted to make a village we're coming out a small farming area that all garden sheds out houses scarecrow so you mean to say the farming areas will be partly separated by a sad and a fence i know they'll be a fence between them between the houses yes the fence between neighbors despite the love people have for each other they've always had fences between their plots. your
3:32 pm
catalyst i wanted to become a doctor in your head so i could help people but when i was eight or so my parents sent me to art school choice that's how everything took off. raising children aids definitely much simpler in real life you go to hell than solid bird with been planting these sound flowers for five months there are over twenty thousand of them. i came here tell me nine two thousand and eleven my friends and i just popped and. when we entered the museum i was taken aback i was walking around in a daze want to hear. i was fascinated by the scale they mound of detail the fact that little cars were running i could understand how they worked they even had accidents i was shocked at what it turned out that the team was working on this was small i wanted to join two.
3:33 pm
craft over ten years i happened to be looking for a job at the time my friends asked me do you want to work here and i said yes but actually hold mean to say gays office said meet out in front of him and i said i want to want to care about. this way she did us here russia is the largest country in the world to the least in terms of area is the way that means that if i set the goal of making a model of it to the scale of one to eighty seven it will but there will i would need to have an area equal in size to a country like great britain. at this point so it was extremely hard really difficult to understand what i had to do and i realized that in order to compensate for this i would have to get rid of some things leave out certain details and not add others. to work the tote fourteen hour shifts a day for the model itself was being worked on around the clock day and night because i was practically living in the. summer of love of all i was able to put
3:34 pm
together a team of top notch people which is extremely important. they believed in the project and consider it to be a part of themselves you know part of their lives. look we had to stop putting it on the rails it has to be placed in such a way the business can see it because they've always when i first came here the western part of the project was just a frame covered with plywood you know a flat table on the eastern side and they were starting to build the landscape but i see what i was just amazed by the scale of the project i could see the potential of what might come of all this. i started working here as a model maker so from the very bottom. then i was promoted to railway manager. constantine i need another wire. well if

you compare us to the real country to the real russia i guess i'd probably be something like the minister of transportation. in the euro mountains we've got what we call mission control or mc for short this is the system that controls the whole model. and it controls the railways it regulates vehicle traffic and it controls the system the changes the time of day from day to night and vice versa. from what you're locomotive five thirty three to as a. whole the royals ready. for a c.
3:36 pm
in order to have as many different kinds of trains as possible travelling around russia we use revolving exchangers. they're all controlled using a computer. each one of these exchanges can store up to thirty trains or in one train pulls in another takes off to replace the. choice of singing the day we discussed to me as seen. from the north and. i have already started what. one can any seen star itself by building a landscape. first just get the ball it might seem like it's easy but it's actually not at all so that you need to create mountains hales and various terrains so offended for example to a right we have we've just seen that i spent a whole year working on this is how it turned out in the end. we had
3:37 pm
a lot of challenges along the way like for instance we didn't know how to make snow piles ice rageous or snow banks. we had to glue icicles create transitions from winter to autumn may differ in slides show people playing in snow put together winter parks and build this pieced. what's the muscle we need to make a six switch so route twenty six to make sure that the other parts of the route run properly or let's try installing the switch now. we set directions with the help of switches in order to diversify traffic currents around the model but i
3:38 pm
why this similar to tran way switches. right now we're installing precisely the same kind of switch so that we can change the ca's directions. with a current thanks to a post-graduate work assignment after i graduated from university i got a job at a scientific research institute in a top secret lab the word for the ministry of defense. i was involved in developing communications systems for russia's military defense. when my friends invited me to work on the model as a regular electrical engineer i didn't quite understand what i would be doing at first. route seventeen has a small field try pressing button twenty five. miles of launch he took me aside and said do whatever you think is the right thing to do this phrase put me at ease. will probably have to change the railway is fine now
3:39 pm
thanks. to the tall part of russia was interesting for everybody it's picturesque and exciting but as a technical work i'm more interested in what's underneath russia which i feel at home here so i know everything in. my friend's mother who i worked with that the top secret research institute is still working there. recently asked me to join them but well i've already given my heart to the model. what can be more wonderful than this. the whole thing is a model. sometimes i have this thought this dream of becoming tiny. one eighty six the size and i walk around a little russia here just talking to all these small little papal.
3:40 pm
economic ups and downs in the final months thanks to the deal sang and the rest because i think the key will be everything.
3:41 pm
i'd love to see some polling done in the western european countries on a bailout package for ukraine at this point in time i don't think here i would like to see the results i don't think washington would like to see the results. not in syria. now life. starts.
3:42 pm
with we wanted to create a realistic global that would represent life today through the wood to life as it really is. in the far east for example the coast guard has stopped an illegal best so little rest its crew over here some siberian tigers are probably going to hunt to do them on this small riverbank inside. prospectors are searching for gold like you put in the tiger horse that brought across some of the bear cubs and received a fright. those also reclusive hermit living in the tiger. most of the north scientists have found the remains of a woolly mammoth. believe overall. his wives are preparing dinner.
3:43 pm
by way of the houses in northern cities are standing on the grounds and just like in real life. in the sound way to do my favorite scene and if a maid among all of visitors to is the one in such minds it will crawl away a little boy has telling a woman spacing suit. i'm painting the ground for a seld with agile gardens and a forest. crush i painted planned the gras is a difference tones and sound completely at random without any particular order but at. the hard part is that i have to take breaks.
3:44 pm
like the day on the model lasts fifteen minutes while night last two minutes and they gradually falls from east to west. or take back as historical as soon as you've painted the scene in a plain clue it's only gets dark the glue dries up and you have to start over again . with that story and we'll have a thick forest here in troubled area that separates the village from the railway as i would like to design a scene near the village depicting haymaking people in the shell the harvesting hay cutting across. the pond it's an artistic image an idea an artistic vision
3:45 pm
and not from a single artist but several it's our version of what a lot of people don't understand that a lot of visitors don't get it. with they're always going to be people who criticize you just go to the well frankly speaking we're always respectful understanding and welcoming of any criticism if you will of the meal for example in our far east region there's a military air base that is combat helicopter sitting on a holy. ones i'm a man came up to us to the hole i understand he must have had some connection to this field with what he said about the walls guys with number thirteen that we got and where i was in a thirteen as an aviation they said you're breaking corrected at this. same day with. the children just normal although very often it's offensive and really just a pity when people start criticizing us without having looked at the moment all the way through the whole while they'll say things like what you have submarines there
3:46 pm
so there should be a roasted pig but we do actually have a cook standing there holding arrested to meet the summary an opponent's return but we knew they have this tradition in the navy and we put strange because. it was one of those it's also hard to imagine russia without its famous would know . but the one that's why we have showcases of unique buildings that were made without using a single nail. the just to be honest i lost count a long time ago of how many people are currently living in our model of russia. but i know for sure that the population can be measured in the hundreds of thousands. by the police i'm making and the rest of them are.
3:47 pm
much the boy in the blue sweater standing near the zoo please don't touch the model . too long group visited us helicopters also played to a band it took quite a lot of work to restore it but occasionally little toy people go missing all the might be missing a body parts. like a head or a leg. because we have a specially designed rally where the inhabitants of all model of protesting. protesting against any political system instead the protest against the sometimes
3:48 pm
terrible treatment they get from visitors who vandalized. their standing with picket signs to monitor the people respect that it was simple but they don't touch them. or you know the difference between our model and european models is that ours is not a railway model it's a model of our country was one of the railway is not actually the key component here you know only serves to bring life to the model. yes but if you travel throughout the real russia by train it would take you will most a week to do so but in the model the train from st petersburg to moscow runs from fifteen to twenty minutes at an average speed of twenty centimeters per second so.
3:49 pm
there's an accident group six. and what happened there a train has come off the trucks we should find out why. there's something wrong with the switch let everything here is just like in real life and just as in real life we have accidents on the look up with the sighting they might happen because of a speck of dust on the tracks in the dirt particle falls there it could lead to an accident. everything's fine you can start it's go. so we've always had a few countermeasures to prevent it since the very beginning of this project because. we installed special equipment and incredible amount of various absorbing caucus in addition there's a two prong system inside the hole there was this as well as the first of these measures is that the exhibition hall is pressurized in order to expel dust and we will pull the second measure consists of simply repeatedly washing the floors. i
3:50 pm
often have to walk on the model south and on the water to finish the thanks people seem in gelcoat located shy and it's got all of our it's god there must survive. the.
3:51 pm
source of that i really wanted to depicts pre-revolutionary times and victory in world war two and the one yeah yeah i always do mediately came up with an idea of how to do it myself we created a huge film studio where they kind of shoot movies anymore and we've constructed all that. most years but here we have a scene of the royal train arriving but i live on the opposite side
3:52 pm
a locomotive is pulling a flatbed like you loaded with film equipment you know which i put out the. most colossal we have massive decorations that demonstrate filming a movie about world war two and i mean. for tanks artillery soldiers trenches explosions or everything is on display there. just the way the policy of detail is such that you basically can't fully examine the scene this without using binoculars. put it that we should look down at the same time there are people filming a site for a movie nearby which attests to the fact that a lot of contemporary movies are being made in russia. how is the u.f.o. being held up look it's not standing on anything. i'm placing hollis's dividing plods and putting cars in place. some people have
3:53 pm
already abided their country house some a still on the way the houses are very beautiful all they've got carved charter is an extraordinary lock of residence. so while it seems that everything is ok on the whole your. local grocery and there is a little car over there abandoned yes but any better apply a little rust colored paper but right now it looks to know you. the idea is basically complete of those a little brighter here a little simpler the only got serena i think you've done an excellent job as usual .
3:54 pm
now that i think about all the challenges we faced the difficulties and complexities it seemed like we wouldn't be able to do anything with them. there's a wonderful russian proverb that comes to mind over the hands to what the eyes fear . and it sums of our experience perfectly with we would often be scanned by that we kept on going. risk a person would have to be crazy to sign up for this project sometimes we can't believe it ourselves that we accomplished all of this.
3:55 pm
quite often countries rich in natural resources are the poorest africa's a colony it's a colony of the big corporations it's a colony of someone's home leaders who are under the thumbs of the big corporations so they have to beg from the world bank's development of social programs goes to pay back debts countries for drowning under the amount of debt that they had and so every year they would borrow money. and they would use that same amount of money to pay back oh that's. all that money really held. the wages of
3:56 pm
debt. i know c.n.n. m s n b c fox news have taken some not slightly but the fact is i admire their commitment to cover all sides of the story just in case one of them happens to be accurate. that was funny but it's close if it's true just like think. it's because one whole attention and the mainstream media works side by side the joke is actually on we're going to look. at our teen years we have to put it right. because the news of the world just is not this funny i'm not laughing dammit i'm not how. you guys talk to the jokes well handed to me that i'm.
3:57 pm
3:58 pm
can lead. me off a story. it won't. touch it's technology innovation all the news developments from around russia we've got the future of coverage. paying for the products with this label. guarantees better deals for the third world produces. looking at the small print user splotch of the business and by the workers on it and myself and advocates better working conditions and high social standards we give them five euros a day. and it's not enough to satisfy us. yes all of the poor are at their wits say my entrance to euros a week when i asked the boss cribbage mall he refuses my salary is only no for my
3:59 pm
food and money for my family in haiti. fair trade behind the scenes almost see. america turn serious time to germany. now i watch parts. right on the street. first street view and i think picture. on a reporter's twitter. and instagram. to
4:00 pm
be in the know. on. moscow and probably had celebrate their reunion as the. republican officially becomes part of russia hot on the heels of voting to leave ukraine. russia gets a new high profile clients after being hit by fresh u.s. sanctions. i personally don't have an account in it but i will definitely open to. president putin says he wants to get his salary of bankers washington and brussels out more russians to a list of those sanctions by visa and asset freezes despite all of them being connected with the crisis in ukraine. i. read one hundred people injured and dozens arrested in madrid
4:01 pm
and. of the thousands converge on the capital from across the country. with a look back at the past seven days top stories and the latest developments this is the weekly international moscow and crimea have celebrated their reunion after the peninsula broke away from ukraine to become part of russia the skies were lit up by fundraise for both in the russian capital and which is the main city of crimea crowds gather there to watch the spectacular show and to celebrate. watching that one there well there we have finally in russia at last a long time dream has come to nothing. it's our holiday we're celebrating the end
4:02 pm
of the geisha with that shadowy historic margin and. i think all crimea is a happy day went back and. only one now for the russian speaking population in ukraine south. before crimea was signed sealed and delivered to russia president putin lashed out at ukraine's new leadership russia strives to be good terms with its neighbor but putin made it clear that the far right radicals calling the shots in the interim government are not the people moscow wants to talk to the president also hit out the u.s. and europe for supporting the our people saying their actions have crossed the line but also who carried out the coup in ukraine. sees nationalists and anti semites and they still define the country's political agenda it's clear that there is no legitimate executive power in ukraine right now there is no one to negotiate with
4:03 pm
washington step further sanctions on moscow over crimea this week the u.s. says it's supposed to punish those who threaten ukraine's integrity however it appears that some of those targeted have nothing to do with ukraine but instead all belong to the president's judo club united to a businessman who back in one nine hundred ninety eight founded the club where putin was training brothers are cardia boris rotenberg are also businessmen and members of that same club you're the couple chokers the code of the bank and also one of the judo club survivors and asked for his bank it's also been sanctioned by washington which inspired the russian president to open an account and have his salary paid there regarding this as far as i understand this is a little slow and i personally don't have an account in it but i will definitely opened one on monday. well brussels also weighed in adding more dames to its black list of russian officials in both the e.u.
4:04 pm
and the us are threatening restrictions against the russian economy as well in case of any escalation of these foreign ministers would sanctions against moscow may actually hit europe itself it looks like most of the e.u. governments like to differ little commentator and of a dead ski says it's actually become a habit in europe to blame moscow. traditionally russia is accused because that's the vision that many politicians inherited from the times of the cold war but in visitation europe is profoundly an economic crises and for europe in launching towards ukraine was a victory they hoped to bring to the electorate before the european elections but of course it failed because it wasn't realistic while it was largely voluntary based on sound dreams and political ambition so when the reality came and you had a car which took a step which was the only possible step we seem now the same step to new leaders recurse economically you can't integrate country of forty five million people
4:05 pm
without a million dead overnight so it is a traditional approach because europe still is needed it's needed of this image of anime are fresh and bare because it's much easier to talk about the situation of conflict and crisis created by russia's man to resolve the problem of twenty five million off european unemployed. russia's move to incorporate crimea has triggered a verbal fight in the un security council where the u.s. envoy attacked the russian ambassador the regime or sco and going as far as calling it a thief. russia is known for its literary greatness and what you just heard from the russian ambassador showed more imagination than tolstoy or chekhov a thief can steal property but that does not confer the right of ownership on the thief. getting our discussions today some of my colleagues used excessive language particularly the us ambassador ms power who started by mentioning tolstoy and
4:06 pm
chekhov but ended at the level of the tabloids such insults concerning russians are absolutely unacceptable that should be clear to them is that the u.s. delegation expects to cooperate with russia in the security council on other issues in the future because i used it on me many are claiming the crimean referendum was forced by russia and is therefore illegitimate but journalist christine stone who was also an observer you created two thousand and six parliamentary elections things otherwise. western media made all sorts of attempts. to try to show that it was forced on people and they had a lot of journalists in crimea while that thing happening and because hand and with that best endeavors it was very very difficult to show that anyone was being forced to do anything saying no as being a legitimate i think with the two thousand and ten world court decision on course of which said that. there were no international sex rules on such things
4:07 pm
and in any thought or question could be asked and there was nothing particularly wrong in international law if the result came out as they have done in crime is so i think it's very difficult for them to use international more in this particular situation. to spain know what started off as a peaceful releasing files malts to madrid from all across the country turned into volunteers on the streets of madrid protesters angry at staggering unemployment rates and ongoing austerity cuts attacks police it and did in dozens of injuries and the rest of our correspondent you go to school of he witnessed the clashes. it was a peaceful protest rally throughout basically the entire time until the end when it was coming to an end and then suddenly a group of young a radical basters with their face covered started throwing stones at the police the police had a perimeter there they started brushing the protesters away from it and then we've
4:08 pm
seen firecrackers being fired at the police and reportedly rubber bullets being fired back as a result there are injuries on both sides we've been actually following these protesters for peace now and everyone that i spoke to in specially the older professors they told me that there may be some problems with the police money comes to the younger professors the younger activists they did expect some sort of problems could happen and apparently that's what's happened here or shortly critical against the government's policies specially economic policy is that the spanish economy is going through severe problems unemployment stands at around twenty six percent which means that the only other e.u. state with the more serious problems in that sense is greece after greece comes spain but when it comes to the youth fifty percent around fifty percent of all the youth in spain don't have a job also around two million spaniards are really dependent on state pensions and
4:09 pm
food. banks and so on which is also applying pressure on the economy at same time of the troika go to the international creditors and brussels they are calling for more job cuts for more we doctrines of salaries and at the same time they're not promising any improvement to economy economy in the next four years which obviously is only aggravating the situation and is even making these thousands of people more angry. well before the protests ended up in madrid they had covered hundreds of kilometers on foot on the so-called mulch of dignity and got had a chance to walk with people who told him why they felt they had to of the take this journey. hello sir why are you here. why am i here i'm sick of this government with all the promises they never fulfilled they said they were going to create more jobs and lower the taxes but
4:10 pm
it's a lie instead unemployment rolls from four to six million but this is the only way we can fight back. that after twelve days of walking it's cold at night and during the day we're in high spirits you have to put an end to these savage policies. that cause you to take part in this march thing there are too many reasons my sons have to work every day from eight in the morning to five in the evening only for four hundred u.s. per month also i'm a teacher and i know what cuts in the public sector mean all these of fiction's this isn't saying i'm marching to madrid because i can't walk to believe and trust us we must stop them and the troika. well that sentiment shared by many in the country and earlier i spoke to writer and activist klara velvety who says people have to take part in protests to let the government know it called get away with its policies. for one day we stop our protest in our missions that would take everything away from us have already taken
4:11 pm
a lot of everything else and it's our responsibility to our grandchildren to to at least try to stop at least to try to keep some of what our grandparents records but i think it's our responsibility in course that those who are because we see we haven't taken everything else away like they maybe they really like doing. the country's got to get out of that hasn't it and surely that's something your future grandchildren of got to think about as well what is the alternative apart from these methods the debt which is we've got to pay the debt. that's a look at argentina in stopping its debt and it got out of the situation it was already so we think part of the debt the part of they think makes sense because most of the debt is not our debt is because he belongs to the banks so i think that we should stop taking our tax money to pay their debts. and still to come on the program here at all to international burning bridges.
4:12 pm
it's a visa the richest province vote overwhelmingly to break away from rome. after a short break. with economic ups and downs in the final months. the deal sank i and the rest because i think the case it will be if we don't talk to me. i'd love to see some polling done in the western european countries on the below package for ukraine at this point in time i don't think here would like to see the results i don't think washington would like to see the results.
4:13 pm
his prime minister has said the country's armed forces have downed a syrian plane in the border region where rebels have been battling president assad's forces and chris says it shot down the jet with two rockets as a war plane had violated its airspace wouldn't damascus of a heavy response while syria accuse its neighbor a flagrant aggression claiming it was flying over syrian territory
4:14 pm
a craft came down in syria. well back to ukraine over the course of the bloody coup one of the country's opposition leaders and the interim prime minister arseniy yatsenyuk took to the stage many times to promise people radical changes but since taking power he has backtracked on many of those promises of his medical reports. the self-proclaimed governments in kiev kane's a power banking on people's frustration over the collapse deal. yet if the e.u. agreement is not signs they know according to article one one one of the criminal code the president will get ten to fifteen years behind it. however later i've seen yet some newcastle backtrack on this. really pick up it because we've postponed signing the economic section of this document due to
4:15 pm
concerns over the possible negative effects that entering the free trade area might have if the industrial regions. easier said than done apparently once you have to actually analyze all of the pros and cons looks like everyone said oh it's in what's being called the new governments in ukraine with contradictions and rein in secret. we heard promises from kiev to join nato and get as many weapons from member countries ask possible a draft law on the resumption of the process of integration of ukraine internet zero has been filed and record it provide the maximum possible material and technical assistance in the form of modern military hardware and armaments once again something you have to take back your security in order to keep ukraine undivided we've decided to keep the session to nato now which of the agenda.
4:16 pm
what about all those promises to ban the russian language. i don't want the ukrainian youth to speak russian i want them to speak english and i will make this my top priority but i want them to travel to hear anything this is a lie assignment if you will nuke or no one is trying to take away your right to speak russian according to this law in all regions dominated by russian speakers russian shall be a regional and de facto official language and it should have the same rights as the ukrainian language of the union that was a quick quantity and in stark contrast with his previous convictions these are regime for options was announced for a few hours at one point. ukraine's national security and defense council took her decision to introduce a visa regime with russia only to be dismissed by gets in the very next day. ukraine should not hurry with introducing
4:17 pm
a visa regime with russia and this move must be mature after almost a month end office siyad salut has failed to show what he's capable of other than threats which he did not follow through on and questions remain as and so what are his long term policies will be as far as easy to take back as the ones that we've seen so far marina koester of r c a top ukrainian navy admiral claims the russian military has built up an offensive strike group in crimea allegations were dismissed by moscow as russia's deputy defense minister says western observers know it's false too soon in spirit seen seven teams have visited the russian ukrainian border with these teams consist of observers from the u.s. canada switzerland and the baltic countries it is the chance to speak with military personnel there and take photos you can afterwards as we spoke with the inspectors who said they were satisfied and did not find any alarming military activity and

welcome to venture capital this week sanctions against russia someone like us and the e.u. needed more names to the blacklist of individuals but he will face us it's freezing as a consequence the russian market is open davis' three percent low on friday and credit rating agency fitch has slashed russia's credit outlook to negative attitude this is the first financial institution to face u.s. sanctions over the ukrainian crisis bank. now the european commission will also examine the house in force of potential trade war against russia on this talk of a trade agreement with ukraine we're going to focus our attention so today on how
4:31 pm
long and maybe impact to considering the city is such a popular price for russians and indeed rough. money as well now british property is all top of the shopping u.s. for wealthy russians with real estate six point five billion dollars and it doesn't stop some twenty eight russian with a market value of over three hundred billion dollars or listed on the london stock exchange which equates to ten percent britain grounds three year invest of visas to foreigners who invest over one point five million dollars in government bonds now london is also the place to get a divorce or a financial settlement most famously the spat between old business chums boris berezovsky and chelsea football club. abramovich which means london though is already today in helping to make british
4:32 pm
a little while the whole industry is now worth forty billion dollars according to the independent schools council eight point three percent of private schools normal british people's last year were russian which equates to over one hundred million dollars in school fees with the number of russian peoples doubling since two thousand and nine so let's remember all of those figures are going to get over to london and now we're going to join mr mike from b g c broca's for more on how london may be affected by all of this mike as we know in london so after plenty of russian cash how do you think the business relationship will be affected by. these very difficult to see just how. important the business registry in russia are in the u.k. you know it's very well here in the you see something like one hundred thirty i
4:33 pm
think. companies. the main index. you saw a lot of very high profile russian business would have bases of operations in the i think you probably the worst it was russia should have been the case but i probably it yeah i chelsea football club i for over a decade and many russians educate their children at private schools. in the u.k. my daughter goes to school with with. so yes it's very difficult to see how it helps to sort of. you know the russian expert community. and the business the business landscape because they're very well entrenched at the moment i'm just doing a smile on my saying save the sanctions come as a rush. i wonder if i must say money could potentially stop coming soon and that
4:34 pm
begs the question where else would it go. yes it clearly is a worry i guess you know in terms of russians pulling money out of the u.k. it might take the form for instance of listings of russian companies on the stock exchange you know there has been some suggestion that you know some of these companies you know might be delisted looking at the other side of the coin you know russia has a private i should program. would like to get a slice of that listing business you know that may not be on the table anymore if if sanctions are more aggressively pursued my guess one is that i want to talk about the e.q. if i can be case angela merkel the chancellor of japanese she's been quite vocal in the whole sanction at stake now the relationship between the e.u. and russia is well over three hundred billion dollars it's a huge trade relationship it's a kili a must as well how much money could both parties lose in all the press what are
4:35 pm
your main concerns when we talk about sanctions the european. color me as it is that i would need every training that he could possibly get judy is a relatively strong position in that respect but of course you know growth isn't so great when they can afford to rush you know entirely that you know a lot of talk about trade it really actually senses around you know. germany is a significant consumer of russian energy and there just seems to be. you know the fact of the matter is is that europe needs the energy russia needs the revenue even during soviet times when russia was in afghanistan little of the cold war. there wasn't the fred but russia was going to turn off the taps but i don't really think it's there. but that's the reason why i think that you know this this
4:36 pm
whole talk about you know massively escalating sanctions to the point where your energy supply was actually threatened at least for any extended period of time is just a massive book. mike thank you feel today really appreciate that talking to us from the city of london. and it was a busy week in moscow's i knew union of industrialists and but as to place well the country's top business executives were in attendance as well as president vladimir putin of the topic of sanctions was not mentioned by mr pease and it's very much business as usual now i was that myself i managed to catch up with a manual with dad the head of the frank chain of command to did they didn't seem too concerned about the prospect of more economic sanctions i've been looking through every well this would be when you when you hear the word that would you
4:37 pm
think you know when you watch it carefully yes. of course you are being me. what is very interesting is that stuff as i've seen it it's business as usual everyone continued doing this. you know show the existing disco they continue to insist they continue their businesses and there was no as if nothing was going on so that to be good news i also spoke to. the from bank of a set piece said that when it comes to the investor for a shrewd market players there is money to be made in the mall risky environment it's an old fact that. capital is greedy and capital was covered i would say that now we're faced with the kind of fear. prevails over the greed is so and people. actually sitting up watching and those who had time to close their
4:38 pm
positions and now they watch what will happen but at. some stage. the price of us it's really be on the level which is. lucrative to the investors and then they will come back obviously. a lot depends on the on the dynamics of the events going forward so so but but hopefully everything goes well and then then we'll see the investors come back and from the confederation of businessmen of turkey says politics should stay out of business good business to the turkish government will make the decision regarding any sanctions against russia but that's a political decision as far as we are concerned business has no religion or nationality so we will continue to develop closer economic ties between our two countries corporate news time now i'm going to start with phones because russia's telecom davos telecom a disaster by not to report this week march was unexpected but the loss of seven
4:39 pm
