truth this. regions of eastern ukraine expect a new crackdown at any moment now. in the previous round of fighting. the us president announces a change of plans in afghanistan saying he intends to keep some ten thousand u.s. troops well beyond the end of this year. by the financial crisis swing to the left and e.u. parliamentary elections as voters resort to extreme change. on the torture of. sterilisation. californian prisons to. describe the psychological tools of being used to break.
2:01 am
a very well welcome to you from the international news team here in moscow i'm. very latest world headlines flashes of sporadic fighting have emerged in eastern ukraine where two regions remain besieged by the and as the military cracks down on government dissent shelling has been reported in the lugansk reach and the main focus of attention however is still done yet that is exactly where some of the fiercest combat has been taking place in recent days. i spoke with aussies correspondent. after monday and tuesday operations of the iranian army against the anti-government forces here with the use of having weaponry and i.b.a. should wait fighter jets and helicopters were here in this cause above the sea
2:02 am
teeth firing off to fierce clashes inside and outside the city and reports about snipers very active here and of course after world and local media broadcasts terrible to refit pictures from the city morgue showing dozens of dead bodies of those who were killed in the battles the streets have to ask around the leadership of the self-proclaimed people's independent republic of donetsk in force to curfew from ten pm to six am but actually there is no need for that because even without that people prefer to stay at home fearing for their lives public transportation is frozen one even most of taxi service is no longer available and schools and universities are run t. as well ukraine's assault is in kiev claim that's what they call and then terror peroration will continue here to the baryons to the big three given an ultimatum to to give them and forces forty five in their defenses but no one can understand can say for sure what exactly does that mean for ordinary people for local residents
2:03 am
here but what's clear already what they understand is that life will hardly be the same again despite dozens of bodies being taken to the morgue and don't yet see the ukrainian government is denying that innocent locals are among the casualties of the operation the acting head of ukraine's presidential administration insists the crackdown is not putting civilian lives at risk however video photo evidence coming from eastern ukraine does seem to suggest otherwise you can see images from across those on your screen of civilians killed in the crowd. the army's supporters in the u.s. however deny a big government troops could possibly be to blame. we remain concerned about the actions of russian separatists against. civilians in eastern ukraine there are a lot of the porch that this is an entirely one sided that the. separatists in the separatist leaders say that the ukrainian authorities have been shooting at
2:04 am
civilians but you don't you haven't seen well if we have concerns well expressed. now we asked our globalist research center analyst why the u.s. is keeping so quiet about the civilian cost of ukraine's military operation he told us because at the end of the day washington's being caught off guard think it's not going to cry because in the mental map the spokeswoman we heard speak of course is not her own voice she has to simply express the script which is approved. in the appropriate agencies of state and they didn't expect this to happen. it's not on their mental radar screen they can't imagine that they don't know what response to have to it if this scale of operation with this scale of casualty had been carried out by a president that you knew could reach before he was toppled in the coup in february there would be outrage and condemnation from the united states there would be
2:05 am
outrage and condemnation from brussels and from the western european capitals why is there silence now we are seeing the metastasizing of civil war in ukraine the seriousness of this cannot be overestimated and our reporters are monitoring the situation in ukraine and bringing us all the very latest developments as they happen on maria front so as artie's are going to go as well paula also on the ground there or posting the very latest findings on their twitter feed and follow them up and find out exactly what is the very latest of news coming out of the east of ukraine. well this is our team international the dollar could fall from grace this is a warning from american economists pointing at russia and china as the cause for four hundred billion dollar energy deal between the two may threaten the greenbacks coveted status as the reserve currency of choice details on the other coming up on the program. as well as a tongue in cheek solution to the world's problems putting all political leaders
2:06 am
into a rule and shooting them off of space that's coming up for you just a bit later in the press. but for now washington has announced a sudden change of plans for afghanistan according to barack obama the end of the combat mission planned for the end of this year won't mean the withdrawal of all troops from the country he says thousands of soldiers one i'll stay on afghan soil for at least another two years is guy in a church or can't remember the obama administration's mantra u.s. troops will leave afghanistan by the end of two thousand and fourteen while president obama has just scrapped that deadline at the beginning of twenty fifteen we will have approximately ninety eight hundred. m thousand eight hundred u.s. service members in different parts of the country the bilateral security agreement which the u.s. has been negotiating with of galveston is expected to seal the deal the war torn country is now approaching the second round of its presidential elections with both
2:07 am
front runner saying that they will sign the agreement the current president hamid karzai has with hughes to sign it before he leaves office having drawn attention to civilian casualties seen u.s. airstrikes the agreement would protect u.s. forces from being prosecuted under the afghan law the obama administration had tried to strike a similar deal with the iraqi government but failed and had to withdraw all troops president obama was back from air base in afghanistan this weekend addressing the west troops and he told them by the end of this year at the us his combat mission will be over and he said america's war in afghanistan will come to a responsible end he repeated the same message this tuesday in washington while president obama may see the end but many don't and the placement of procedural forces in afghanistan is seen to anchor the u.s. in a conflict that has lasted longer than any other us war and we asked a member of the war coalition a new gene puryear what he thinks about the u.s.
2:08 am
decision to keep troops in afghanistan for longer the president has made very clear that he wants to shift out of these large scale occupations and sort of really reaffirm america's imperial military commitment around the world in a different way that focuses more on the drone warfare which has killed many civilians also on the special forces activity building up forces in governments friendly governments are probably governments of the united states around the world and so certainly i think that this is one of his his desires to be able to come out of his presidency saying well i accomplish this goal is that i get out of afghanistan and iraq and now we're out of afghanistan in iraq. art online and aussie dot com right now elderly people in switzerland could soon be allowed to check out early groups suggest healthy older citizens who are tired of living should be held to die or read about on the web site right now. check out this one
2:09 am
as well. scientists say they've worked out how to keep connected on the web even in space those details the web. for the meantime here in our international record levels of unemployment and demick poverty and immigration they're all pushing weary europeans to vote for extremes and while countries with stable economies such as the u.k. and france are voting for the right those that most severely hit by the crisis have swung to the political left in portugal for example the anger at austerity policies well it's brought the socialist party out on top with the ruling social democratic party left far behind the opposition also gone and strong support in spain where the united left coalition won six seats and the upstart spanish protest party that translates to we can they manage to get five representatives into the e.u. parliament and then greece of course the worst hit by the full crisis the
2:10 am
opposition syria is a party has won the largest number of seats now let's follow syria's way to the top of the party managed to force out the main social democratic party pasok as an overwhelming government support for austerity policies didn't help with the party lost three positions since the last elections now some five years ago in fact or the neo nazi golden dawn party you can see that third place in the elections boid by a wave of support and it's all represented in the european parliament for the very first time as r.t. is more in a quarter of reports as an alarming number of people remain unemployed they are looking to the political left for change. greece is europe's most depressed economy with nearly half the workforce either on employment or on pay but the least basilio has worked most of his adult life and he could never imagine that he would be unable to look after his family as we walk into his flat he tells me he just received more bills that he doesn't know what to do with. some
2:11 am
a little bit of home and not been paid since january salaries have already been cut by twenty five to thirty percent or the amount of people who are getting paid a very few. we've got employment is more than twice the average rate in the eurozone but the number of people who have no money is much higher because there are around one million workers who are going on paid some four years. i want and that's how do you tell your wife why you're living like this especially when she's also one employed with water we're not living through hard times we're living a nightmare how do you tell your kids you have no money and when your grandkids are sort of chocolates and you can't buy it what do you say no if nearly thirty five percent of greeks are at risk of living in poverty according to the helen x. it's a civil authority and locals are slowly losing the hope of got their man in the most here the situation is dramatic because the majority of the one million two hundred thousand people who are unemployed don't even have
2:12 am
a euro to live on greece is experiencing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis greece is being transformed into a third world country many have taken out bank loans to make ends meet but with no salary coming then they now risk losing their homes under lease told me that his electricity was cut off twice already but it was when his daughter was given birth and he was penniless that he reached the bottom. any particular going to but there is nothing would. you know but there's a billion so they do this when he. gets get through the night. so when you have to wait. like all the other cool the other kids this horse of thing you've got this is most unfortunately this is the situation in the country the government says that the situation in greece is getting better but if you talk to these people here who are still protesting against all plots protesting against higher taxes then clearly
2:13 am
we can see that they're not happy with the current situation the economy in their country forever now they want to. read the file server or some far from greece. you know we had a chance to speak to a member. he believes the entire model of the e.u. needs to be changed as according to him it's completely out of date brussels has to change its relationships to the south of europe has to change its status within the european union in the last four years we have the highest unemployment among your which is over sixty percent young people leaving the country we have more than five thousand suicides in the last three and a half years the european union leaders today are meeting in brussels not to discuss the aftermath of the elections not to discuss unemployment not to discuss
2:14 am
high immigration not to discuss social exclusion and all these hardships i have described before but in order to preserve this model which is completely completely out of time i'm not in any cohesion with the problem of european people and european citizens i would back in just a moment here on our international with while the rest of the world's top headlines on the world up. well i told you my language as well but i will only react to situations i have read the reports. for the new i will leave the state to comment on your letter. to carryout a car is on the docket. thank you. when you question the prepared for
2:15 am
a chase when you should be ready for a. criminal speech. down the street into. dramas. stories others to use in the interests. so this is changing the world. so picture. from around the globe. it's a quarter past the hour here in the russian capital thank you for joining us the california prison system has been the target of outrage following revelations nearly one hundred fifty female inmates were sterilized between two thousand and
2:16 am
six and two thousand and ten without any of the required state approvals. for the proposed censorship of prison mail the some fable prevent convicts from letting the public know about the treatment they could be subjected to. america's golden state covered in sunshine. and populated by the nation's largest prison system some inmates convicted of serious crimes but many are enduring inhumane incarceration thousands of california prisoners are being caged and isolated for years or decades in what u.s. officials prefer to call security housing units or shoe kept in concrete windowless eight by ten cells for nearly twenty three hours a day their food is slipped through a door slot one hour of recreation is often limited to pacing in handcuffs and
2:17 am
shackles in another solitary area telephone calls and contact visits are generally prohibited california prison officials claim it's not solitary confinement but human rights officials bluntly equate the conditions to torture on u.s. soil any sort of human rights criteria that you apply to the conditions in california prisons regarding solitary confinement violate the most basic of human rights standards keeping somebody in extreme isolation for more than fifteen days is cruel and unusual it's torture as of last july thirty six hundred california inmates are enduring this treatment according to reports one hundred six have spent fifteen years living in cages while twenty three prisoners have remained locked in shoe for two and a half decades last year nearly thirty thousand prisoners staged a sixty day hunger strike demanding reforms to the excessive use of isolation and also the creation of
2:18 am
a path for inmates to be released from shoe conditions while california has vowed to modify its solitary confinement rules the u.s. seems stuck with the reputation of using intense detention both at home and abroad marina portnoy r.t. . and stephen as if it is a former inmate who served eight years in solitary confinement he says simply put the system just doesn't work here in california we have laws that are supposed to protect people from cruel and unusual punishment and it's you know it's nothing short of torture i mean we know that these conditions drive people crazy they drive the mad clinically in a very short amount of time right now in california there's about five thousand people in long term what's considered long term indeterminate solitary confinement so for some of those people it's you know eighteen nineteen year old person who has you know a long time to do
2:19 am
a prison is going to spend conceivably the next forty or fifty years in solitary confinement and it's only representing prisoners from california alexis i've got the police describe how isolation has a serious impact on the mental health of the inmates there is a growing understanding of the grave psychological impact of solitary confinement so there is now consensus within the social science. confinement calls is a significant danger is descending into irreversible mental illness and also results in a constellation of symptoms you know i think that something is very important to understand is that sultry confinement is not something that is imposed by a judge or a court based on what you're convicted you are placed in solitary confinement as an administrative process that is governed by prison officials obviously a whole host problematic issues that arise from the privatization of prisons you
2:20 am
know i think it's very important not our prison system be subjected to as much public scrutiny as possible and obviously privatizing the prison system shields that kind of scrutiny. it's r t international the biggest energy deal in history could be the catalyst to the throne's the greenback is the world's reserve currency so say a range of american economists commenting on russia and china's four hundred billion dollar natural gas agreement david quoted the c.e.o. of financial advisory firm the motley fool singapore you told us earlier how the dollar could be affected america needs to be very aware of what is going on because what is happening will be china will be paying for gas probably in rubles and so consequently. what will happen between these two countries is that they will be trading in their in their own respective currencies consequently they will not be holding u.s. dollars as a result previously but you had to do was to say let's go and buy some u.s.
2:21 am
dollars and use that for paying for they cast over in russia and that may not happen in this particular case because i think both countries want to move away from holding too much in the way of u.s. dollars. and earning the status of reserve currency isn't all about economic prowess according to the president and c.e.o. of finance company s g h macro advisors. on money he maintains that military power and geo political chess play are also very big factors. and when people look at the reserve currency they look at the economic power of a country but a hand in hand with that also grows what is the perception at least of this size and strength in military dominance and political dominance of that country in the global history and go to a fault and so in that way the jostling for power in the pacific between china and the us and so on and even what's going on between russia and ukraine i think to a lesser degree is very significant now maybe the world has
2:22 am
a little bit of over dependence on any one country and they get concerned about that so maybe and more multi-polar system could perhaps diversify some of the global financial cycles away from each other so that it might serve them serve them better in a multi-polar world. dozens of palestinians have rallied in gaza city to demand hamas on the palestine liberation organization form a unity government of the two political groups are currently negotiating the process of writing together experts believe they will be able to make it work for the impact this could have on long stalled peace talks between the palestinians and the israeli government far from clear in the fiftieth anniversary of the palestine liberation organization a senior correspondent at haaretz he says peace cannot be achieved without global help. mediation to say. no. this problem what you must. wheel on the part of leaders in israel and the list
2:23 am
on and then in order for them to market disagreement through their constituencies to the domestic audience they may. must have the support of not only the united states but of russia and the other members of the other permanent members of the security council as well as the european union japan and other dollar countries such as these can the american countries in order to financially back disagreement which is going to be very expensive you may lead to real effort by the united states or any other power will not do it must be truly international effort to south korea to open up the r.t. world update where a fire has killed at least twenty patients in an elderly home south of the capital officials report that most of those who died were over the age of seventy and unable to leave the incident comes just a day after seven victims were killed in
2:24 am
a fire in a shopping mall. i. have seized control of the presidential administration building angry at corruption by those in power thousands gathered in the capital on tuesday demanding the president's resignation your position says it's taken temporary control of the smaller state in the caucasus region ahead of national security has now condemned the move i think the time. was right now the new crew members of the set to launch skyward in just a few hours and they believe well leaders could put their differences aside if they look at the world from a different perspective other members of the international team say they have built a very solid friendship together suggesting that international politics here on earth don't apply while opening the globe his mattress. the soyuz capsule rolled from its hangar under a clear sky but it made clouds of uncertainty for future missions to the
2:25 am
international space station recent squabbles between russia and the u.s. have been obscuring their longstanding friendship in orbit but if there were fears that any of this could affect the work of the international crew traveling on this mission. as. well thanks i think american read wisemen german alexander durst and russian mission commander maxime sariah or the forty first expedition to the i s s but i'm not here. and. i'm here in the past week and very very hot stuff and reconsider. our. well and there we are great friends and as they raise the rocket into position on the launch pad it's worth noting that they want to make this voyage something of an express trip you see normally they have to circle the earth
2:26 am
a couple of times before they dock with the process that takes a couple of days and this time they want to make the trip in six hours you can go to excuse him to shoot a flight some health benefits for the crews and improve working conditions see it's only natural that we're trying to create comfortable conditions and we're constantly working to improve the flight of the. while there they'll go on three spacewalks to maintain the i assess and also conduct more than fifty experiments we have for example the electromagnetic levitated was the first time that we will really have to describe top of capabilities to examine new materials in space we have a lot of for you to go with the experiment the big package of scientific experiments that this is going to fly during this mission and in their downtime they'll be keeping in touch with family of course i will miss my son but every sunday i get to talk to him via a video link up it's all important work work they say that's too big but petty
2:27 am
politics what i.q. we need to put the presidents of every country together in one spaceship and send them to space so then we can see our beautiful planet and realize that there's no need to fight we just need to live and enjoy the beauty so it's. a beauty of a little blue dot we'll call home. archie bike and. up next we're taking you backstage with our teams news team. to have an abortion before this creature looks like a baby. and i career is going pretty well at the moment i've got a lodging in tearing partner who understands my situation.
2:28 am
and definitely he's in the right time. i need something about it. this is still one of the most isolated and mysterious places in the world old legends of cannibals make many people afraid to travel here are they going to put us on the menu that europeans have been here for less than a hundred years few people know what secrets lay hidden within these forbidding mountains. they said a bunch of cannibals killed and ate a group of shamans
2:29 am
a russian plane one of the biggest in the world flies over a couple of guineas wild mountains for the very first time. villages have never even seen a come. what will they make of this huge steel bug. european workers are told never to venture out alone. the truth son miss bono it's easy. to play right on the street. first street. and i think the church. on our reporters twitter. and instagram. could be in the. mob. today and signs of more far worse as a pastry shop i am listening to now maybe alice has friends where.
2:30 am
they are a link of what ifs you can just see the covering themselves. aren't going. to. this is our senior national coming to live from moscow to with me welcome to the program now calls from the opposition leaders to maintain a truce was a riot police have failed to prevent protesters in kiev from building new barricades and burning tires on embattled independence square.
2:31 am
what's happening is basically the. deal position might be the opposition in the eyes of what seems anyway in the eyes of the european union in the eyes of the united states the world to get m.t.v. but whether the these guys and said no everybody be peaceful they've all gone. you know. who you. hello hello hello let's now cross lived all over who's following closely developments there peter do tell us what's happening where you are at the moment what's the atmosphere in the city but what we're seeing right now is the continuation of the rebuilding. barricades reinforcing of arcades there were already there the building of new barricades and some positions. where you all seeing a steady stream of people arriving here just behind me is independence square is continuing to have speeches being delivered to a crowd over where the main flash point is they needed the numbers stadium we were just over there before i was talking to you and they barricades are still being
2:32 am
reinforced as much as they can the still ballroom or thai is arriving we are hearing from the opposition that they're trying to convince people to get back on board with a truce to have talks but really the reaction it's getting from a holiday line of riots is that they not spaying much attention to that they don't really want to see this any kind of trees one of things that we have see what would be going around the barricades a lot of of pre-made. well itself called tales that are ready to be throwed it seems in some cases people already wanting to to those one of the most disturbing things though we have heard just recently comes from the authorities here which they are getting ready and they're prepared because of some information that they've received that they could be an attempt by khalid lying groups here to perform some kind of retaliation killing to retaliate for the deaths of rice's demonstrators here in kiev so that's o.c. very worrying news and we'll be keeping an eye on not as we get more information
2:33 am
although it's ok. i mean not to come to this town that still have to meet and. i know what that i mean you know russia could go either way it could be very intense all very very. telling people getting to be getting help. to. have been given up on top. of. the trade. the. one thing you know what. will cause you to look. like you did you just see people like. have an. impact
2:34 am
on. the. t.v. set to. make. it clear. it is not liberate. you have cleaned it up and it. let me think very. bad when i look when i got it. that'll help. says a lot of people i didn't expect technology exports to play so many people in the winter.
2:35 am
so i'm thinking let's just pull everything one tight shot like. the stuff so that it looks like. it you know what i'm doing and pack it so i want to be slick i need someone we can feed that is the time to explain happily because that's my to make sure they keep. coming down right love to say get it but it's all. they can. to pluck us about. the world when technology comes concept they say. it's all about gadgets it's all it's a. hold up. a lot in de lima's it wouldn't be fulfilled without all smartphones as
2:36 am
well as the computing now i didn't think make it in moscow they're trying to get you to meet the creators of all these amazing gadgets that we live in in our world the technology behind it and also taking you to places beyond your dreams. so this is meant to carry out how many kilograms exactly. and i promise you we'll wait forty eight. i read on the way back in march that to. such i'll put on the care bill say you know climb up in that i have my mike it's a mix of beer and then i'll just say i'm not a shot if you drop the pace of it or whatever i'm a. bet i'm not. i'm just a my russian and sure i don't think i'm a writer so such as putting the adlabs lead on this is not a rescue situation but let's just say that there was a situational way somebody was stuck somewhere in the snow to be there because why it's winter right now in russia and they needed to be this coming to cause you're
2:37 am
reading such a. fantastic thank you sets up good luck if you did very well you can get a good good man and they added if you just got somewhere in the forest in the middle of nowhere. his team would probably have one of these to give you a rescue that it. doesn't get a shot right yeah. i am afraid i have heard myself i just pray something like. i think a. taking a lot of it. is always a bit of commotion when you do like an action movement especially with gadgets and i think i might have hurt myself
2:38 am
a little bit. here we got the shot put my finger on the mount. me nobody got time for that you got to keep moving. her. lose. her year too. but you know it was this is a little bit rough word windsor little bit. so i would think things are busy things are good it's been if you're here. like the best part so for me it is a meeting a fellow correspondent i love that part what do you think so far has been the most like difficult part the most challenging for you being an american i feel like i have to prove myself twice as hard as you way because i'm an american british no there's no they get off yeah yeah now i feel like i really do i feel like i work
2:39 am
really hard to prove that i miss good as you guys every day think that's what i was you do do you don't you all do i'm going to have to pull their arms because you. secret the struggle. i mean it's a private there's competition in this sport you know it's true that when i default brad i watched your coverage of the terrorist attacks on the metro i watch them maybe twenty times in moscow. supplier for. actually what i was doing was watching the tape over and over and then i watched lindsay friends tape over and over at the suicide i haven't left her by well i think in those sort of stories the best. way the most important thing is that you cannot report about anything that may cause spread panic or distribute the wrong information so if you're not sure about
2:40 am
something you should just say. general stuff will show completely sure about maybe repeated if you need to but you know you feel sad like i have three days after covering a story and i felt i wanted you want more yeah it's a bad feeling at the same time because it's so horrible story. and they still say this is a kid. baker right now i have. not voted a flight. see if we don't end up here again. because this problem isn't going anywhere to go down i mean not that frustrating thing is that leaving here with. what a sage he feels like a job. that he's tough and he. desperately
2:41 am
looking for just clean pumps and simply. reach fifty. it's been interesting it's been very busy been very little time see what's been going on hasn't been for everybody i'm told that a good story unfortunately we don't get to see the end of this but i think this is the fifth that's the nature of this type of situation is something that isn't going to result quickly good look to the bio to fight and a peaceful place. to get a plane back to get back home to him a bill is going to pay my rent then it's paris. some more demonstrations of will say welcome to. the show we have the reputation of the filthy rich the dressing appropriately for cool. it is pretty much. like you said it

yeah you know a west they work in the industry with that also doesn't usually work out. so the drilling you did for the wife you have to choose the cheers. i did on a lot of the work in our health plan to get me. out of that. ranch my cameramen. believe that i can operate this thing called on hold on one better way to get something that is fun to tell us and all that you can use because what it also that is eco friendly i mean we do that in moscow lots of cars. but nothing beats having something so simple and i'm good enough palin the way i'm not is
2:50 am
a lot of the gotta do that but. i'm just going to fart profile but i come up that way wait wait wait. what hold on hold on. my little boy can look like. ok i gotta leave like that. can't get ahead of this thing now. i want one of the. if i may say. that a touch up here. we have to get the ultimate stand up we have the ultimate gadget i mean i love the bit fast it's all about testing all the gadgets and this one is one of my favorites
2:51 am
a five fold the equal mobility i think it's one of those gadgets that anyone not normal person can use running around town getting your errands done and the first thing about it is that it's equal frankly and it looks very. well my god that one nearly killed me i'm like can you not see i'm on a damn thing like move people like this we get like come on. you just found out that people will die. if that be so. they let it die and so it's a wrap yeah. it's fast it's cool it's heard then it's like let's get in they are right it looks like it's a rap what's a day. misprint. we had done. so
2:52 am
we just finished shooting head to the picnic and. the thing about stories where you don't have control over is that you never know what you're going to get when you get there you have an idea of what you want. and you kind of putting a story in your head before that i wrote before i got to the expos thinking oh it's just going to be baghdad i'm just going to be playing around with like new technology how do they have like some cool i phones all you know smart phones a whatever and then you get there you realize that it is still like that so you then you have to study just the story as you go along because you're picking up different things and you see different things. and then you side kind of holding the story as you go so it's just part of the world we live in you just have to adjust with what you get. it's been a long day i'm tired i'm hungry. and i still have to go to work to make sure that all my packages are ready for the next couple of days
2:53 am
because i'm not going to be in town and it's a saturday everybody else is going out having a great time and i'm still on the clock and i could just let it go and let somebody else take care of it but then i'm i wake up the next day freaking out about what i see on telly so it's better that i do it because i can have a good night's sleep if i know that everything that i need is well done the way i want to. so. all the days of a journalist as my friend say a workaholic. even though it's only a fleeting visit it is nice to be cool but it's also quite strange that believe it's really be cold. war is no. go for a big here it is one of those every stick you teach. two years of european history i mean we've literally just crossed from east to west the it's the building wall just then in the military cemetery.
2:54 am
i started with two thousand and five when it was really taking off and all getting started so i've been there since the beginning i have seen the channel change a lot and really. over those years of the just about everything with them and it's they've given me a chance to really develop as a journalist you know tom says that probably i might not have gotten the channel that it being established for a lot of years so as far as my own development goals it's been well invaluable the time that i've spent at all t. because they give me the chance to kind of cool all right if you think you can do it's own up to.
2:55 am

2:59 am
don't have that risk. this is still one of the most isolated and mysterious places in the world old legends of cannibals make many people afraid to travel here are they going to put us on the nine year that europeans have been here for less than a hundred years few people know what secrets lay hidden within these forbidding mountains. they said a bunch of cannibals killed and ate a group of shamans a russian plane or one of the biggest in the world flies as a pup when the guineas wild mountains for the very first time. villages have never even seen a come. what will they make of this huge steel but. european workers are told never to venture out alone. truths and myths oh no it's the.

the dissenting regions of eastern ukraine expect a new crackdown any moment now. the reports of massive civilian victims in the previous round of. the u.s. president announces a change of plans in afghanistan he says he intends to keep some ten thousand u.s. troops well beyond the end of this year. the country hardest hit by the financial crisis is swinging to the left in the e.u. parliamentary elections as voters resort to extreme change. on the torture of inmates in a mass sterilisation scandal see california. strong criticism as.
3:01 am
tools were being used to break them. a very warm welcome to you from the entire international news team here in moscow i'm. very latest world headlines. sporadic fighting have a broken out in eastern ukraine where two regions remain besieged by the army and as the military crackdown on anti-government dissent shelling has been reported in the lugansk region the army then made an overnight attempt to take control of a town gripped by antigovernment resistance however they failed to get past the activists checkpoints they will report that the training camp of pro autonomy five is in the region was destroyed in. the tension now is focused on yet some of the fear has taken place in recent days. up to monday and
3:02 am
tuesday operations of the iranian army against the anti-government forces here with the use of having weaponry and be a should avoid fighter jets and helicopters were here in this cause above the bahrain after fierce clashes inside and outside the city and reports about snipers very active here and of course after world and local media broadcasts terrible to refit pictures from the city morgue showing dozens of dead bodies of those who were killed in the battles the streets have to ask around the leadership of the self-proclaimed people's independent republic of donetsk and forced a curfew from ten pm to six am but actually there is no need for that because even without that people prefer to stay at home fearing for their lives public transportation is frozen one even most of taxi service is no longer available and schools and universities are ranty as well ukraine's assaulters in kiev claim that
3:03 am
what they call and then terror peroration will continue here to the baryons to victory given an ultimatum to and to give many forces forty five in their defenses but no one can understand can say for sure what exactly does that mean for ordinary people for local residents here but what's clear already what they understand is that life will hardly be the same again. despite dozens of bodies being taken to the morgue and don't yet see your cranium the government is denying that innocent locals are among the casualties of the operation the acting head of ukraine's presidential administration insists the crackdown isn't putting civilians lives at risk however the video and photo evidence certainly seems to suggest to you otherwise coming from eastern ukraine here you can see images from across the dawn yanek region of civilians killed in the crackdown the army supporters in washington however deny the government troops could possibly be to blame. in concern about the
3:04 am
actions of russian separatists against. civilians in eastern ukraine there are a lot of the porch that this is an entirely one sided that the. separatists and the separatist leaders say that the ukrainian authorities have been shooting civilians but you don't you haven't seen that well if we have concerns well expressed. well we asked our globalist research center a list martin saif why the united states is keeping so quiet about the civilian cost of ukraine's military operation he told us but it's because while washington has been caught off guard i think it's not going to cry because in the mental map the spokeswoman we heard speak of course is not her own voice she has to simply express the script which is approved. in the appropriate agencies at state and they didn't expect this to happen. it's not on their mental radar screen they can't imagine that they don't know what response to have to it if this scale of operation
3:05 am
with this scale of casualty had been carried out by a president that you knew could reach before he was toppled in the coup in february there would be outrage and condemnation from the united states it would be outrage and condemnation from brussels and from the western european capitals why is there silence now we are seeing the metastasizing of civil war in ukraine the seriousness of this cannot be overestimated. and r.t. is correspondent for national for example their policy as well they're all on the ground for us right now keeping all of us up to date via twitter feeds you can follow them for the very latest out of eastern ukraine. well this is our international thanks for joining us today for the dollar could fall from grace this is a warning from american economists the pointing at russia and china to blame a four hundred billion dollars and if you deal between the two may threaten the greenback. the reserve currency of choice that's coming up here on the program on
3:06 am
r.t. international. also a tongue in cheek solution to the world's problems but an old political leaders. and shooting them off into space is coming your way just a bit later here in. washington has announced a sudden change of plans for afghanistan according to barack obama the end of the combat mission planned for the end of this year won't mean the withdrawal of all troops from the country in fact he is now saying that thousands of soldiers will stay on afghan soil for at least another two years is guy in a. remember the obama administration's mantra u.s. troops will leave afghanistan by the end of two thousand and fourteen while president obama has just scrapped that deadline at the beginning of twenty fifteen we will have approximately ninety eight hundred. nine thousand eight hundred u.s.
3:07 am
service members in different parts of the country the bilateral security agreement which the u.s. has been negotiating with of galveston is expected to seal the deal the war torn country is now approaching the second round of its presidential elections with both front runner saying that they will sign the agreement the current president hamid karzai has refused to sign it before he leaves office having drawn attention to civilian casualties in u.s. airstrikes the agreement would protect u.s. forces from being prosecuted under the afghan law the obama administration had tried to strike a similar deal with the iraqi government but failed and had to withdraw all troops president obama was at the back air base in afghanistan this weekend addressing u.s. troops and he told them by the end of this year at the u.s. this combat mission will be over and he said america's war in afghanistan will come to a responsible end he repeated the same message this tuesday in washington while president obama may see the end but many don't and the placement of procedural forces in
3:08 am
afghanistan is seen to anchor the u.s. in a conflict that has lasted longer than any other us war. or of the antiwar coalition eugene puryear what he thinks about the u.s. decision to keep troops in afghanistan for long. but it is very clear that he wants to shift out of these large scale occupations and sort of really reaffirm america's imperial military commitment around the world in a different way that focuses more on the drone warfare which is killed many civilians also of the special forces activity and building up forces in government friendly governments or probably governments of the united states around the world and so certainly i think that this is one of his his desires to be able to come out of his presidency saying well i accomplish this goal is that i get out of afghanistan and iraq and now we're out of afghanistan and iraq. right now elderly people in switzerland could soon be allowed to check out early
3:09 am
a group suggests healthy older citizens who are tired of living should be helped to die you can read about it r.t. dot com this hour. tweet me to the moon scientists say they've worked out how to keep connected on the web even in space those details are right now on our website . for the meantime here on r.t. international record levels of unemployment and poverty and immigration they're all pushing weary europeans to vote for extremes and while countries with stable economies such as the u.k. and france are voting for the right those most severely hit by the crisis have swung to the political left in portugal for example the anger at austerity policies has now brought the socialist party out on top with the ruling social democratic party left far behind and the opposition also garnered strong support in spain where the united left coalition won six seats and put davis the upstart spanish
3:10 am
protest party that translates to we can manage to get five representatives into the e.u. parliament and in greece of course the worst hit by the crisis the opposition party has won the largest number of seats let's follow it seduces way to the top of the party managed to force out the main social democratic party as an overwhelming governments of port for austerity policies there did not help it the party lost three positions since the last election five years ago and the neo nazi golden dawn party there grabbed third place in the elections boyd by a wave of support and is now represented in the european parliament for the very first time and as our reports as an alarming number of people remain unemployed they continue to look for political change to the left. greece is europe's most depressed economy with nearly half the workforce either on employment or on paying
3:11 am
on the lease but basilio has worked most of his adult life and he could never imagine that he would be unable to look after his family as we walk into his flat he tells me he just received more bills that he doesn't know what to do with. not been paid since january salaries have already been cut by twenty five to thirty percent the amount of people who are getting paid a very few. reagan employments is more than twice the average rate in the eurozone but the number of people who have no money is much higher because there are around one million workers who are going on paid some four years. but i want to know how do you tell your wife why you're living like this especially when she's also one employed we're not living through hard times we're living a nightmare how do you tell your kids you have no money and when your grandkids lots of chocolates and you can't buy it what do you say nearly thirty five percent of greeks are at risk of living in poverty according to the helen exits
3:12 am
a civil authority and locals are slowly losing the hope that a man in the situation is dramatic because the majority of the one million two hundred thousand people who are unemployed don't even have a euro to live on greece is experiencing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis greece is being transformed into a third world country many have taken out bank loans to make ends meet but with no salary coming then they now risk losing their homes under lease told me that his electricity was cut off twice already but it was when his daughter was given birth and he was penniless that he reached the bottom. to those whom any particular but there is nothing would. you know but they still believe so they do this with his child he had to get through the night. so when you're employed. like all the other cool the other kids this horse of thing you've got this is who
3:13 am
has to work most unfortunately this is the situation in the country the government says that the situation in greece is getting better but if you talk to these people here who are still protesting against all parts protesting against higher taxes then clearly we can see that they're not happy with the current situation the economy and their country wherever they want to. bring to. their. roots for some for greece. but we spoke to a member of the city is a party thought of cost he believes the entire model of the e.u. desperately needs to be changed as a completely out of date brussels has to change its relationships to the south of europe has to change its status within the european union in the last four years we have the highest unemployment among us which is over sixty percent young people leaving the country we have more than five thousand suicides in the last
3:14 am
three and a half years the european union leaders today are meeting in brussels not to discuss the aftermath of the elections not to discuss unemployment not to discuss my immigration not to discuss social exclusion and all these hardships i have described before but in order to preserve this model which is completely completely out of time i'm not in any cohesion with the problem of european people and european citizens. thanks for joining us here in our international library sushi in moscow just a moment we're back with the update and then we take you up to the top floor with the international space station.

3:16 am
international california prison system has been the target of outrage following revelations nearly one hundred fifty female inmates was sterilized between two thousand and six and two thousand and ten without any of the required state approvals it's all about a scandal over the proposed censorship of prison mail that some fable prevent convicts from letting the public know about the treatment they can be subjected to . the story. america's golden state's covered in such. and populated by the nation's largest prison system some inmates convicted of. serious crimes but many are enduring inhumane incarceration thousands of california prisoners are being caged and isolated for years or decades in what u.s. officials prefer to call security housing units or shoe kept in concrete windowless eight by ten cells for nearly twenty three hours
3:17 am
a day their food is slipped through a door slot one hour of recreation is often limited to pacing in handcuffs and shackles in another solitary area telephone calls and contact visits are generally prohibited california prison officials claim it's not solitary confinement but human rights officials bluntly equate the conditions to torture on u.s. soil any sort of human rights criteria that you apply to the conditions in california prisons regarding solitary confinement violate the most basic of human rights standards keeping somebody in extreme isolation for more than fifteen days is cruel and unusual it's torture as of last july thirty six hundred california inmates are enduring this treatment according to reports one hundred six have spent fifteen years living in cages while twenty three prisoners have remained locked in shoe for two and a half decades last year nearly thirty thousand prisoners staged
3:18 am
a sixty day hunger strike demanding reforms to the excessive use of isolation and also the creation of a path for inmates to be released from shoe conditions while california has vowed to modify its solitary confinement rules the u.s. seems stuck with the reputation of using intense detention both at home and abroad marina portnoy r.t. and stephen as if as a former inmate who served eight years in solitary confinement he says simply put the system just doesn't work. here in california we have laws that are supposed to protect people from cruel and unusual punishment and it's no it's nothing short of torture i mean we know that these conditions drive people crazy they drive the mad clinically in a very short amount of time right now in california there's about five thousand people in long term what's considered long term indeterminate solitary confinement
3:19 am
so for some of those people it's you know eighteen nineteen year old person who has you know a long time to do a prison is going to spend conceivably the next forty or fifty years in solitary confinement an attorney representing prisoners from california alexis i've got a class describe how isolation has a serious impact on the main mental state of the inmates that. well in understanding that the grave psychological impact of solitary confinement so there is now consensus within the social science that solitary confinement calls is a significant danger is descending into irreversible mental illness and also results in a constellation of symptoms you know i think that something is very important to understand is that sultry confinement is not something that is imposed by a judge or a court based on what you're convicted as you're placed in solitary confinement as an administrative process that is governed by prison officials obviously
3:20 am
a whole host of problematic issues that arise from the privatization of prisons you know i think it's very important not our prison system be subjected to as much public scrutiny as possible and all this the privatizing the prison system shields that kind of scrutiny. twenty minutes past the hour here in moscow the biggest energy deal in history could be the catalyst that throws the greenback as the world's reserve currency this according to just a range of american economists are commenting on russia and china's four hundred billion dollar natural gas agreement earlier i spoke to david quo the sea of financial advisory firm the motley fool singapore he told us how the dollar could be affected america needs to be very aware of what is going on because what is happening will be china will be paying for gas probably in rubles and so consequently. what will happen between these two countries is that they will be
3:21 am
trading in their in their own respective policies consequently they will not be holding u.s. dollars as a result previously what you had to do was to say let's go and buy some u.s. dollars and use that for paying for the gas over in russia and that may not happen in this particular case because i think both countries want to move the u.s. dollars well earning the status of reserve currency isn't all about economic prowess this is according to the president and c.e.o. a finance company s.t.h. macro advisors. the money he maintains that military power in geo political chess play those are also very big factors. when people look at a reserve currency they look at the economic power of a country but hand in hand with that also goes what is the perception at least of this size and strength in military dominance and political dominance of that country in the global history and go. and so in the way the jostling for power in
3:22 am
the pacific between china and the us and so on and even what's going on between russia and ukraine i think to a lesser degree is very significant now maybe the world has a little bit of over dependence on any one country and they get concerned about that so maybe and more multi-polar system could perhaps diversify some of the global financial cycles away from each other so that it might serve them serve them better in in a multi-polar world i global snapshot for you in brief here to south korea we go where a fire killed at least twenty patients an elderly home care home i should say south of the capital officials report that most of those who died were over the age of seventy and unable to leave the burning building quickly enough this incident comes one day after seven victims were killed in a fire in a shopping mall the government's also facing criticism from within the country for failing to improve safety standards. more than a thousand protesters have clashed with police in the brazilian capital in the
3:23 am
latest demonstrations against the cost of staging the world cup the protesters attempted to march into the capital stadium where the tournament's trophy was on public display rocks were thrown at security forces who fired tear gas in return indians with tribal dress and clothes from the homeless workers' movement also joined the protests. opposition activists have seized control of the presidential administration building angry at alleged corruption by those in power thousands gathered in the capital so true statement to demand the president's resignation the opposition says it's taken temporary control of the small state in. the caucasus region head of the national security council has condemned the move as a coup attempt by the parliament plans to hold an emotion of the session on wednesday. before we get to on the money the new crew members of the international space station a set to launch sky woods in just a few hours and they believe world leaders could put their differences aside
3:24 am
perhaps if they look to the world from a different perspective other members of the international team say that they build a very solid friendship together suggesting international politics here on earth do not apply opening the globe is ati's matricide. the soyuz capsule rolled from its hangar under a clear sky but it made clouds of uncertainty for future missions to the international space station recent squabbles between russia and the u.s. have been obscuring their longstanding friendship in orbit but if there were fears that any of this could affect the work of the international crew traveling on this mission. oh thanks. american read wisemen german alexander gersten russian mission commander maxime sariah or the forty first expedition to the i s s but i know.
3:25 am
i'm. not saying we. are. all right. well and there are three. times as they raise the rocket into position on the launch pad it's worth noting that they want to make this voyage something of an express trip you see normally they have to circle the earth a couple of times before they dock with a process that takes a couple of days and this time they want to make the trip in six hours. to shoot the flights have health benefits for the crews and improve working conditions it's only natural that we're trying to create comfortable conditions and we're constantly working to improve the flight of the. while there they'll go on three spacewalks to maintain the i assess and also conduct more than fifty experiments we have for example the e.m.l. electromagnetic levitate or is a first time that we will really have this guy put top of capabilities to examine
3:26 am
new materials in space we have a lot of these villages near him and we have a really big package of scientific experiments that this is going to fly during this mission and in their downtime they'll be keeping in touch with family of course i will miss my son but every sunday i get to talk to him via a video link up it's all important work work they say that's too big but petty politics aside what i we need to put the presidents of every country together in one spaceship and send them to space so then they can see our beautiful planet and realize that there's no need to fight we just need to live and enjoy the beauty so what is. it beauty of a little blue dot we'll call home treasure archie bike and. the latest wheeling and dealing in the world of finance all no money that will be next to run out and.
3:27 am
have an abortion before this creature looks like a baby. and i career is going pretty well at the moment i've got a lodging in tearing partner who understands my situation. and definitely is in the right time. anything about it. this is still one of the most isolated and mysterious places and. old legends of cannibals make many people afraid to travel here.
3:28 am
europeans have been here for less than a hundred years few people know what secrets lay hidden within these forbidding mountains. they said a bunch of cannibals killed in a group of shamans a russian plane one of the biggest in the world cup when they get these wild mountains for the very first time. villages have never even seen a come. what will they make of this huge steel. european workers are told. truths and miss. hello and welcome i'm peter lavelle i'm at the st petersburg international economic forum and we're discussing four wars and who pays the price.
3:29 am
i was joined by distinguished panel of c.e.o.'s and media expert ben eris he is the editor in chief of business new europe we also have john laughlin he is the director of studies at the institute of democracy and cooperation alexander make your wrist he's an international law expert sebastian sashi is a policy advisor for russia energy and infrastructure projects that's us consulting and pepe escobar he is a roving correspondent for asia times if i go to you first the term info wars it's been around for a lot a long time but what does it mean to you in this current environment right now it's the. terrified that they don't want to. information the world anymore what is the implications of the wealth this means that if you go to a hotel room in cutoff c. or in dubai you don't have only the b.b.c. and c.n.n.
3:30 am
anymore you have r t you have c.c.t.v. nine you have dutch chavez you have cats you have all just zero hour of bia so it's the multiple or information world that has surfaced and all visited the narrative which used to be called troll by the un will american media until a few years ago and now we have r.t. telling the story in syria telling the story in ukraine and obviously we have the john kerry accusing our c.e.o. of bullhorn of course because the fox news is not c.n.n. has. you know new york times in a washer don't polls are north of course so this is frank open hated because finally we are watching the emergence of global public opinion in different our own leaders but in different languages. telling narrative that is completely different from the one manufactured by the ministry of truth which happens to be located
3:31 am
between washington and new york and brussels with an extension alone going to paris sometimes that's for me is the is the biggest difference and it's going to be you know from now on bended you explain in your business to a large audience what's going on in russia in and around russia in the post soviet space. when you're exposed explaining to your clients you know what's going on because people you can read the new york times you can read washington post you may have an opinion but there are other people that you deal with that have money involved how do you deal with that. we do and i think is do what we're supposed to do which is traditional journalism which is to try and. object and explain what's going on the trouble with a lot of the eastern european story is that it's not enough to know the facts there's so much context and history and politics and you know backroom deals and my
3:32 am
have you you have to have an attempt to try and explain what it will mean this however and to the objective the best you can the trouble is most of my world the international press don't do that they come from a prison it's a pretty determined perspective which colors everything they do and you see it in some of the famous magazines i won't mention by name it's a big car you have to do but it's ok. they the problem is that every lie they they report the facts but then the exclusive the choose the negative things and that's how the bias creeps in that you know the pick up on any story is negative i mean there was an example this week where prince charles happened to mention in the same sentence the words putin and hitler and ends up on the front page of the daily mail though if your she read the story it was just an optimist question you know this woman coming through kind of there and thirty nine and you know had to be the year
3:33 am
that it was do you stephanie mention the you know putin's doing similar things and crane and booms and he's has a headline story whereas other things that are going on. completely you would say that sells and it reinforces a mentality that is really deeply embedded in western audience you know what really worries me is that you know you talk to people in the u.k. and they have basically this one version that's being pushed down their throats of russia is evil for example it's not just russian. but then you sort of the money i mean our readers are investors who actually come out here and have power and buy shares and are interested in results and growth and what have you and they see a totally different story and it's coming to the point where i. i've been to investment conferences and people have stood up and said right the first thing you need to know about investing in russia is do not read the press. because it will confuse you and worry you and it's not useful if you need to know about russia go
3:34 am
that that's the only information you can rely on join jump in real politically correct you don't if you don't mind you said that what sells know the media that's producing the problem is not selling it's usually b.b.c. style publicly funded stuff which is pumping out mass information for free for free real information costs time and money and that's why they subscribe to to bend stacey's of my exactly that's why you have to buy ben's magazine this is mass produced pulp which unfortunately people are very happy to consume it doesn't sell i'm not trying to be a free market money fundamentalists but it's an important point it's a very good point i am a child of the cold war i remember it very well i remember when the cold war came to an end but i never saw such parallel universes as we do right now and it has a lot to do with government spending which has always been there is just under more interrogation right now because of all the television station that i work at i'm not surprised that john kerry was so upset because the narrative is being disturbed
3:35 am
their operation isn't finished this is my opinion not of my station here but this parallel universe as i've never seen it so it's the gap so large if i say that it's about ideology what i mean is that there is and this is another reason why i'm very concerned for my own countries for my in the country where i live the country i'm from i think that the problem is ideological in the sense that we in europe and the americans believe or at least our leaders believe and many people in the media believe that we have evolved to a higher level of civilization i've heard an austrian former foreign minister say exactly this that the european union is the most sophisticated form of political construction in the history of humanity ok nothing less than that and because they literally believe that because and. has penetrated the minds of many intellectuals many journalists are going to leap into the phone malton soviet ideology ever did in the soviet union that is the reason why you have these parallel universes because events are seen only through the prism of this ideology peppino i think the
3:36 am
folks in the east you're saying wow this is a real opportunity we're talking about yesterday's contract when you look because you know this this narrative that we're talking about not only is that usually false and simplistic it's very damaging and it's damaging for business interests for investment and if you can't fight this torrent this tsunami. give up look elsewhere. but they ignored the facts then the arctan i think wednesday that the front page story in the new york times on wednesday was the gas deal which according to them the wouldn't work the wall street journal of the front page on wednesday morning was a gas deal hits a snag capital at its front page i made two phone calls from the airport ten minutes later in the deal was closed we knew it would be close and with a hollywood dish flare they left before the last minute of course and with those
3:37 am
commercial secret prices which is going to be good for china which is still less than they would pay if they import the l.n.g. from copper australia and good for gas from israel but the problem is we've told the specs which is a very small website in new york but it's very important editors are very influential in what it is we published our story on monday morning so it was doing the rounds of the alternative below this year and the met the new york times published that over forty eight hours later was not so i was not as good as our story and tom called me and said look what the everybody was talking the buzz in new york is that who were forty eight hour. head of the new york times and our predictions were correct would do would be this is just a small example worth why people are turning away from the new york times from the washington post from the times of london so the problem is that once again my
3:38 am
fellow members have already mentioned that if you want to fit the narrative the ministry of truth merit you have to distort reality beyond comprehension and then you cannot stick to the story anymore like you know if you have a false flag in syria you ignore it completely iran which is a case i would like to mention that it's like the different context but it's interesting. if you go to brussels and you talk to anybody in the you'll or european commission off the record they're going to tell you more or less the same thing we need to get rid of twenty five percent thirty percent of that we would love to go to tehran to boring clinch deals with the iranians why we cannot do it because the americans long way it is three major european energy majors they want to go to iran that the should have been in a run for the past twenty thirty years the pros the politicians in the you and the
3:39 am
people who write the laws with color coded folders in european commission you know they have no clue they never been to iraq they don't know the potential of the day know that there is enough capital in europe to invest two hundred billion dollars which is the latest number that we have to upgrade year and installations they could start exporting oil and gas to europe in three four years time and then the dependency and you know where hostages from that's over so you know the business sense is there but the political will forget it russia. early greek totally agree with that it's a good thing that we have. a great diversity you know of a different media channels what we have. mentioned so far here's also short social media which brings in the whole new balance between the former you could say policies of communication and individual people and organizations but also
3:40 am
diversity means that there are genuinely different views and if we here talk about the influence and the tendencies of certain media well i mean it's not a new thing that different media in different countries would have a different view on issues and therefore i would be a bit cautious in you know classifying using good or bad or right or wrong i think that's that but that's the kind of media environment if you've been diversity of views yes obviously or however in this environment you're one can be demonized for having a different opinion this is significantly different than what we've had before it's look at the drumbeat to war in two thousand and three we didn't have any social media we didn't have you to we didn't have facebook we didn't have those those platforms i just have to wonder alexander i just have to wonder if we didn't have this social media the other layer unofficial layer then the the narrative the
3:41 am
victoria nuland narrative would have succeeded it would it would become almost a tele terry and one has to be frank and that's talking about diversity we had diversity in the western media then we having is increasingly less and there is a narrative that is being missed and it is becoming monolithic what is actually to some extent a media rating that is that as the western mainstream media narrative becomes more monolithic you have a more diverse international media landscape outside the west and you also have social media but we can't unfortunately be too happy about that because at the moment. the media in the west is still overwhelming. and they still rate to control the news that can still be slipping mr kerry's comments of a few weeks ago showed how angry he's becoming about that i've never seen an
3:42 am
american secretary of state before making an attack like that against a media organization i think donald rumsfeld when he. should be bob you can say that on these work. right. now we're going to go to a short break and after that short break we'll continue our discussion on in four wars and who. stay. lend. money. to these kids leaves them with these economic ups and downs in the final at
3:43 am
all among the london new york sang i and the rest look like it's going to be casey will be everything we can all fled the i'm. a. celebrity it was terrible they come up very hard to make other plans again a little longer there is a lot lot that never had sex with her there are no lines let's have a little. list of the amount
3:44 am
of lives. a. i think. for. this now i. want one. sign.
3:45 am
a pleasure to have you with us here on t.v. today i'm sure. welcome back to the same petersburg international economic forum for discussing wars in co-pays the price. i came across a journalist that i won't name the person that moved from the united states to become a journalist based in moscow and she said to me. i'd met her of my accident she
3:46 am
recognized me and started up a conversation and she said i never thought i would be working behind the iron curtain and she sent out last year i said but the iron curtain is gone. but she didn't kick catch what i meant and she was a journalist rupert murdoch always used to say his employees never forget we're in the entertainment industry and when i was writing for your father's old paper the sunday telegraph the fellow i work i wrote for saying look john you could understand you're in competition with walking the dog i'm watching the road because . there is an increasingly in spite of this appearance of diversity there is an increase there is a decrease in the number of massive decrease in the number of actual sources of news this diversity sometimes mosque's of a reduction in the in the real diversity one so i gave an interview to a television station and they rang up from my office and they said i ten would like to interview so the man came round and he opened the door and said i'm from euro
3:47 am
news and i said will come in but i thought you were from i t and he said no no i c.n. has your your and so he went up stairs and took his he opened his camera on the camera said reuters. is there will always those who are new to it. but i also very much agree with alexander that that diversity is not enough and i but he this is an extremely important point eve whether it's real or. a new story the fact that the narrative is dictated by power is actually great especially when just yes again i think it's a question of diversity to some extent i mean you see i work in the business of explaining the case for example in public relations of of my clients to the media and it can sometimes be very frustrating if you cannot pick your case you find your facts misrepresented so that's really hard word that's not necessary something i think all in all there's a fairly diverse media landscape but what you see you know are on certain issues
3:48 am
especially in the current crisis but you might also take other issues that if there are some elements in the public just key criteria that easily. as. the media report mainstream in one direction there you stop seeing diversity but for example in the current crisis i think it's not just the question north of and i get the impression from some of the comments here that it is in some way controlled with the media reports i think it's the difficulty why we are not seeing a real dialogue is much more because also be audiences disconnect you see it politically. i think we can experience now that. in societies also very different views which way for example our european continent should go and this is also expressed in the media what i would like to see is much more media
3:49 am
being active in bridging these gaps rather than fuming with my think this is this would be the responsibility especially of public funded media and that we do see a lack of but really i think that is the bigger problem that the audience disconnect. is no joke. when politicians lie to journalists and then believe what they read in the paper and that we're in that. the alice wonderland school of journalism in some us is a politician if you say it three times then it must be true and that's what's going on people just might repeat that and they say often and often again since the press it will be reported and you say often enough and it becomes true and then everybody sort of ignores the fact that we've asked the truth but. so i'm going to bring up the fourth estate because i think it comes back to this journalism. you know it's a business and one of the problems is also this is this democratic function of.
3:50 am
into society hope because democracy does not work unless you are properly informed but that function is being to kate because of the crisis in the industry and also by the advent of social media and if you look at the media power today where it's going you know the rising star in the business buzz feed and vice news and the trouble with these organizations and they have some talented young people the problem with those organizations is they exist purely to get clicks the whole rationale is getting clear so you need clicks and so the obligation that comes with profession to provide objective information as you read it it doesn't apply to them or at least they don't see it as appliance that i mean you look at the mind and reporting and there was there was a classic i think it's new public roads. critique of one of the first few pages and you looked at it was like scenes from how it turning time is most spectacular
3:51 am
photography and there were no words at least there was no why this was had no contact no context no explanation nothing but you know i looked at it was fantastic page this is the problem you see because the power makes a decision on the reporting and this is a feedback loop and they have bad reports and i don't know i decision as an instrument is absolutely an instrument of you know we've got to get away away from this idea that the media is about providing information. on the day off of the nine eleven attacks in new york the sales of newspapers went through the roof everybody knew the facts they weren't buying the newspapers to find out what happened they will find they were buying the newspapers because they wanted to emote and interact with the event they had nothing to do with information at all and by the same token it is also an instrument of power and the reason why it works and why it in print take the current example the new the narrative works as the point of that ben is
3:52 am
made about the decline in the quality of reporters and reporting there's also. unfortunate decline in the public in the consumer there is a very great desire at least apparently for moral condemnation there's nothing people like more than experiencing the sense of moral superiority and that sort of narrative provides that for free and you'll find again and again and again whether it's zimbabwe syria iraq ukraine yugoslavia you name it people who five minutes previously couldn't locate these places on the map suddenly are filled with a sense of knowledge and with a sense of moral superiority and both of those are intoxicating for you know no the problem is there is no business model for selling information on the net for people who invest in it it's impossible to make money with quality journalism on the net this means investigative reporting this means news analysis that goes real
3:53 am
deep it's it costs a lot of money you know my profession foreign correspondent doesn't exist anymore one of the interesting things in the information wars in the way of my own personal experience is that facebook i find is fascinating because i've come across a truly remarkable people truly people like former ambassadors analysts that maybe they're not employed anymore they could be retired or some i retired and they have the computer in front of them and we find each other and some of the analysis that i read i and just a stone did these people are not professional journalists but they have a very specific interest i'm looking at ukraine right now that i've met some people that i've never heard of them before and i read their rank the people put time into it because they're very interested and they don't i'm not doing it for me numeration they're not doing it for likes and in hits it's
3:54 am
a new form of expression that i have beginning to really. value a lot of example if. they're completely i mean most of what most of what i know now i get from the internet from sites like that and from people like that is the point to make is through however strongly you try and impose a narrative the facts on the thing in the end we need through it takes so you can take a long time on they can be an awful lot of misery and pain calls and one should never be callous about this but in the end any system the denies facts simply isn't valuable things stone to go wrong and they stall going wrong in more and more serious ways we've had unsuccessful walls we've had a major financial crisis in the world because people were not looking at things as they were as they are and if we continue doing that in the west we're going to have
3:55 am
more and called limbs and more and more people all be getting to rebel against the hokie age of rage you know any more coming for our panel i'd like to go or audience for maybe a few questions any one on the johnny i'd like to do the eternal russian question what to do and then who is guilty i think that the reason why russia attracts this particular hostility from europeans and from americans is that russia is obviously a european country by its civilization. and it is disagreements are always stronger although between people who are close to one another. the reason why russia excites this hatred now is that russia has taken the opposite path from that taken by europe and the united states the poles which europe in the united states have taken the pulse of path of political post modernism post nationalism post christianity post history post everything goes to big post we are in the west now supposed to
3:56 am
dissolve all cells into you know trans national. supernational organizations and so on russia for the last fourteen years has taken the opposite view it is now a proud state with a strong president and a big national narrative christianity at the full the conservative that drives are absolutely. with hatred because it shows that there is an alternative and they also to want to do is therefore to get rid of the prime cools which is the postmodernism . in other words when you're in let's listen that sense of why i think the crimea issue has excited so much if crimea had simply declared itself to be and all the costs of another pseudo state with pseudo independence it would have probably been trumped up the fact that it was incorporated into russia which is the supreme act of political modernism. and that's what drove them. all if they my panel of distinguished panel for joining us here on our in for wars discussion

4:01 am
had. live from moscow thanks for joining us on our two international line. flashes of sporadic fighting of broken out in eastern ukraine where two regions besieged still to this day by the army as the military crackdown on antigovernment descend shelling has been reported in the lugansk region the army there made an overnight attempt to take control of a town gripped by antigovernment resistance however they did fail to get past the activists checkpoints earlier there were reports that the training camp of pro autonomy fighters in the region was destroyed by a strike but attention now is focused on yes some of the fiercest combat has taken
4:02 am
place in recent days is r.t.s. . up to monday and tuesday operations of the brain in the army against the anti-government forces here with the use of having weaponry and ideation fighter jets and helicopters were here in this cause above the city firing off to fierce clashes inside and outside the city and reports about snipers very active here and of course after world and local media broadcasts terrible to refit pictures from the city morgue showing dozens of dead bodies of those who were killed in the battles the streets have to ask around the leadership of the self-proclaimed people's independent republic of donetsk enforced a curfew from ten pm to six am but actually there is no need for that because even without that people prefer to stay at home fearing for their lives public transportation is frozen one even most of taxi service is no longer available and schools and universities are ranty as well ukraine's
4:03 am
a source is in kiev claim that's what they call and then. we'll continue here till the very end of the big three given an ultimatum to and to give many forces for to find their defenses but no one can understand can say for sure what exactly does that mean for ordinary people for local residents here but what's clear already what they understand is that life will hardly be the same again. despite dozens of bodies being taken to the morgue in donetsk the ukrainian government is denying that innocent locals are among the casualties of the army operation the acting head of ukraine's presidential administration insists the crackdown isn't possibly putting any civilian lives at risk however the video and photo evidence coming in from eastern ukraine does seem to suggest otherwise and you can see images from all across that one yes region of civilians killed in the crackdown the army supporters in the us however deny that government troops could be to blame we remain concerned
4:04 am
about the actions of russian separatists against. civilians in eastern ukraine there are a lot of the porch that this is an entirely one sided that the. separatists in the separatist leaders say that they've been the ukrainian authorities have been shooting at civilians but you don't you haven't seen that well if we have concerns will express them and we are globalist research center and a list of modern society for why the united states is keeping so quiet about the civilian cost of ukraine's military operation he told us because at the end of the day washington's being caught off guard. i think it's not going to cry because in the mental map the spokeswoman we heard speak of course is not her own voice she has to simply express that the script which is approved written for her in the appropriate agencies at state and they didn't expect this to happen. it's not on their mental radar screen they can't imagine that they don't know what response to
4:05 am
have to it if this scale of operation with this scale of casualty had been carried out by presidents that you knew of it before he was toppled in the coup in february there would be outrage and condemnation from the united states there would be outrage and condemnation from brussels and from the western european capitals why is there silence now we are seeing the metastasizing of civil war in ukraine the seriousness of this cannot be over estimated and with chaos and fighting gripping the east if ukraine simply traveling around the area could prove a challenge something artie's paula experienced as she went to tonight donetsk to follow reports. came back. to. what she said such as the roads in and it's completely shuts local ukrainian military since all the shops are running out the senator mccain so close
4:06 am
well. you can see. the airport is closed i go to take it straight from some petersburg to dance relenting key they told me i couldn't fly to do hands because there was shooting and bombing there i was supposed to get there in the morning instead i spend the whole day in kiev. i've no idea what's going on and you can see. this is not a station so all the rights as i say have gone over we're going to have to use our cell phones to actually try to get something i just got this phone call. it's incomplete. information. i think all the way even though. i think.
4:07 am
it. will. go all of our correspondents in that region they remain there for us now and you can follow them on twitter for the very latest from eastern ukraine here but all of us posted on the ongoing violence that. national the dollar could fall from grace this is a warning from american economists as are pointing at russia and china to blame the four hundred billion dollar energy deal between the two. as the reserve currency of choice that's stories on the way here on r.t.
4:08 am
international. to the world's big problems getting all the political leaders on the . story as well on the way. but for now washington has announced a change of plans for afghanistan according to barack obama at the end of the combat mission planned for the end of this year won't mean the withdrawal of all troops from the country he says thousands of soldiers will now stay on afghan soil for at least another two years details. remember the obama administration's mantra u.s. troops will leave afghanistan by the end of two thousand and fourteen well president obama has just scrapped that deadline at the beginning of twenty fifth. we will have approximately ninety eight hundred nine thousand eight hundred u.s. service members in different parts of the country the bilateral security agreement which the u.s. has been negotiating with of galveston is expected to seal the deal the war torn
4:09 am
country is now approaching the second round of its presidential elections with both front runner saying that they will sign the agreement the current president hamid karzai has refused to sign it before he leaves office having drawn attention to civilian casualties in u.s. airstrikes the agreement would protect u.s. forces from being prosecuted under the afghan law the obama administration had tried to strike a similar deal with the iraqi government but failed and had to withdraw all troops president obama was at the back room air base in afghanistan this weekend addressing u.s. troops and he told them by the end of this year at the u.s. this combat mission will be over he said america's war in afghanistan will come to a responsible end he repeated the same message this tuesday in washington while president obama may see the end but many don't and the placement of procedural forces in afghanistan is seen to encourage the u.s. in a conflict that has lasted longer than any other us war. and we asked
4:10 am
a member of the. coalition eugene puryear what he thinks about the u.s. decision to keep troops in afghanistan for a long. the president has made very clear that he wants to shift out of these large scale occupations and sort of reaffirm america's imperial military commitment around the world in a different way that focuses more on the drone warfare which has killed many civilians also on the special forces activity and building up forces in government friendly governments are probably governments of the united states around the world and so certainly i think that this is one of his desires to be able to come out of his presidency saying well i accomplish this goal is that i get out of afghanistan and iraq and now we're out of afghanistan in iraq on our web site for you right now elderly people in switzerland could soon be allowed to check out early a group suggest healthy older citizens who are tired of living should be held. and
4:11 am
read about the controversy on our web site right now and while you tweet me to the moon scientists say they've worked out how to keep connected on the web even in space those details right now are down. for now a record levels of unemployment and poverty and immigration they're all pushing weary europeans to vote for extremes and while countries with stable economies such as the u.k. and france are voting for the right those most severely hit by the crisis have swung to the political left him portugal at austerity policies has brought the socialist party out on top with the ruling social democratic party left far behind of the opposition also gone and strong support in spain where the united left coalition group they won six seats and put damus the upstart spanish protest party that translates to we can they manage to get five representatives into the e.u. parliament and in greece of course the worst hit by the ongoing crisis and the
4:12 am
opposition syriza party has won the largest number of seats and let's follow cities as way to the top of the party managed to force out the main social democratic party. as overwhelming government support for austerity policies policies there didn't help at all as the party lost three positions since the last elections five years ago and the neo nazi golden dawn party grabbed third place in the elections boyd by a wave of support and is now represented in the european parliament for the very first time as artie's marina koester ever reports as an alarming number of people remain unemployed they are looking to the political left for change. greece is europe's most depressed economy with nearly half the workforce either on employment or on paid under lease has worked most of his adult life and you could never imagine. family as we walk into his flat he tells me he just received more
4:13 am
bills that he doesn't know what to do with. them a little bit of woman have not been paid since january salaries have already been cut by twenty five to thirty percent this isn't a case of who's not getting a paycheck the amount of people who are getting paid a very few greek unemployment is more than twice the average rate in the eurozone but the number of people who have no money is much higher because there are around one million workers who are going on paid some four years. but i want to know how do you tell your wife why you're living like this especially when she's also one employed we're not living through hard times we're living a nightmare how do you tell your kids you have no money and when your grandkids are sick of chocolates and you can't buy it what do you say nearly thirty five percent of greeks are at risk of living in poverty according to the helen exits a civil authority and locals are slowly losing the hope of a man. greece is experiencing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis every day
4:14 am
there are power cuts thousands of people have no hot water no electricity greece is being transformed into a third world country many have taken out bank loans to make ends meet but with no salary coming then they now risk losing their homes under lease told me that his electricity was cut off twice already but it was when his daughter was given birth and he was penniless that he reached the bottom. he doesn't know any particular going about there and there's nothing worse for a father when we were in a way to stop him so these when he can help his child get through to the nano person who's also an employed. all the other cool the other kids. these tours of thing you got this is the work of this unfortunately this is the situation in the country the government says that the situation in greece is getting better but if it's all to these people here who are still protesting against all parts protesting against higher taxes then clearly we can see that
4:15 am
they're not happy with the current situation the economy in their country forever they want to. bring a closer of our reports in farsi from greece we spoke to a member of the city's a party cost us he believes the entire model of the e.u. needs to be changed brussels has to change its relationships to greece and the south of europe has to change its status within the european union in the last four years we have the highest unemployment among you all for just over sixty percent young people leaving the country we have more than five thousand suicides in the last three and a half years the european union leaders today are meeting in brussels not to discuss the aftermath of the elections not to discuss unemployment not to discuss my immigration not to discuss social exclusion and all these hardships i have
4:16 am
described before but in order to preserve this model which is completely completely out of time i'm not in any cohesion with the problem of european people and european citizens and we're back in about. this is the media leave us so we leave the media. the same motions to cure. your party there's a goal. that no one is asking with to get that you deserve answers from.

politics only on our team. speak your language. programs and documentaries in arabic it's all here on. reporting from the world talks about six of the c.o.r.p. interviews for intriguing stories for you to. see in trying. to find out more visit our big t.v. show it's called. thanks for joining us the california prison system has been a target of outrage following revelations nearly one hundred fifty female inmates was sterilized in recent years without any of the required state approvals so i made a scandal over the proposed censorship of prison mail to stop the information from
4:18 am
getting out is more important. america's golden state covered in sunshine. and populated by the nation's largest prison system some inmates convicted of serious crimes but many are enduring inhumane incarceration thousands of california prisoners are being caged and isolated for years or decades in what u.s. officials prefer to call security housing units or shoe kept in concrete windowless eight by ten cells for nearly twenty three hours a day their food is slipped through a door slot one hour of recreation is often limited to pacing in handcuffs and shackles in another solitary area telephone calls and contact visits are generally prohibited california prison officials claim it's not solitary confinement but human rights officials bluntly equate the conditions to torture on u.s.
4:19 am
soil any sort of human rights criteria that you apply to the conditions in california prisons regarding solitary confinement violate the most basic of human rights standards keeping somebody in extreme isolation for more than fifteen days is cruel and unusual it's torture as of last july thirty six hundred california inmates are enduring this treatment according to reports one hundred six have spent fifteen years living in cages while twenty three prisoners have remained locked in shoe for two and a half decades last year nearly thirty thousand prisoners staged a sixty day hunger strike demanding reforms to the excessive use of isolation and also the creation of a path for inmates to be released from shoe conditions while california has vowed to modify its solitary confinement rules the u.s. seems stuck with the reputation of using intense detention both at home and abroad
4:20 am
marina port naya r.t. . steven is it is a film and made he says simply put the system just doesn't work here in california we have laws that are supposed to protect people from cruel and unusual punishment and it's no it's nothing short of torture i mean we know that these conditions drive people crazy they drive the mad clinically in a very short amount of time right now in california there's about five thousand people in long term what's considered long term ended term and it solitary confinement so for some of those people it's you know eighteen nineteen year old person who has you know a long time to do a prison is going to spend conceivably the next forty or fifty years in solitary confinement. an attorney representing prisoners from california alexis i got to clear us he says isolation is just counterproductive. there is a growing understanding of the grave psychological impact of solitary confinement
4:21 am
there is now consensus within the social science. consignment calls there is a significant danger is descending into irreversible mental illness and also results in a constellation of symptoms you know i think that something is very important to understand is that solitary confinement is not something that is imposed by a judge or a court based on what you're convicted as you are placed in solitary confinement as an administrative process that is governed by prison officials obviously a whole host problematic issues that arise from the privatization of prisons you know i think it's very important our prison system be subjected to as much public scrutiny as possible and obviously privatizing the prison system shields that kind of scrutiny. the biggest energy deal in history could be the catalyst that to throw the greenback as the world's reserve currency at this according to
4:22 am
a range of american economists that commenting on russia and china's four hundred billion dollar gas agreement david kuo over the motley fool singapore advisory firm he told us how the dollar could be affected america needs to be very aware of what is going on because what is happening will be china will be paying for that that's probably in rubles and so consequently. what will happen between these two countries is that they will be trading in the in their own respective currencies consequently they will not be holding u.s. dollars as a result previously what you had to do was to say let's go and buy some u.s. dollars and use that for paying for they cast over in russia and that may not happen in this particular case because i think both from. want to move away from holding too much in the way of us dollars. the stock has overs of currency isn't all about economic prowess the president and c.e.o. of the finance company s g h macro advisor says this money he maintains that
4:23 am
geopolitics are also a major factor. when people look at a reserve currency they look at the economic power of a country but hand in hand with that also goes what is the perception at least of this size and strength in sort of military dominance and political dominance of that country in the global history and global politics and so in that way the jostling for power in the pacific between china and the u.s. and so on and even what's going on between russia and ukraine i think to a lesser degree is very significant now maybe the world has a little bit of overkill pendants on any one country and they get concerned about that so maybe and more multipolar system could perhaps diversify some of the global financial cycles away from each other so that it might serve them better in a multi-polar world the new crew members of the international space station a set to launch skywards in just
4:24 am
a few hours and they believe that world leaders could put their differences aside if indeed they looked at the world from a different perspective of the members of the international team say they have built solid friendships together suggesting international politics here on earth just don't apply up stairs is not trust. the soyuz capsule rolled from its hangar under a clear sky but it made clouds of uncertainty for future missions to the international space station or recent squabbles between russia and the u.s. have been obscuring their longstanding friendship in orbit but if there were fears that any of this could affect the work of the international crew traveling on this mission. as. well thanks i think americans read wisemen german alexander gerstein russian mission commander maxime sariah or the forty first expedition to the i s s when i was here are you.
4:25 am
really are you are in the past week and very very hot. and reconsider. our. well and there are great friends as they raise the rocket into position on the launch pad it's worth noting that they want to make this voyage something of an express trip you see normally they have to circle the earth a couple of times before they dock with the process that takes a couple of days and this time they want to make the trip in six hours go to excuse to shoot the flights have health benefits for the crews and improve work efficiency it's only natural that we're trying to create comfortable conditions and we're constantly working to improve the flight because. while there they'll go on three spacewalks to maintain the i assess and also conduct more than fifty experiments we have for example the electromagnetic levitate or is the first time that we will really have. the capabilities to examine new materials in space we have
4:26 am
a lot of human physiology experiments do we have a really big package of scientific experiments that this is going to fly during this mission and in their downtime they'll be keeping in touch with family of course i will miss my son but every sunday i get to talk to him via a video link up it's all important work work they say that's too big for petty politics if you look from up there there are no borders the borders are in our heads we have created those borders we have only one planet we have only one environment and we will have to save it together and this is really what you feel about it. we need to put the presidents of every country together in one space ship and send them to space so then they can see our beautiful planet and realize that there's no need to fight we just need to live and enjoy the beauty so what is. the beauty of a little blue dot we'll call home treasure our teeth. up next on r.t.
4:27 am
international the kaiser report unless you're joining us from the u.k. about an error an aide will be trotting your way. to call base and try to score. a point to make money to get fired for the short changing every minute. of the money not our last oh well. my own life would have. was a chance to save you time. these cases most months. sometimes for nothing which. is so simple. it's not
4:28 am
just the story can still be jobs if you see the stage take the t.v. which was featured on the same. stance. on abortion before this creature looks like a baby. and a career is going pretty well at the moment i've got a loving and caring partner who understands my situation. indefinitely is in the right time. and i need something about it.
4:29 am
welcome to the kaiser report on max kaiser you know former president bill clinton did not have sexual relations with that when it. and peter schiff is definitely not supporting bitcoin. max you and i have had peter schiff onto this show many times and many times you spoke to peter schiff about bitcoin and he told you how much he hated it calling and blah blah blah well because its newest merchant peter schiff gold still better than b t c he says so you're pacific precious metals as one of the world's largest merchants of gold and silver dealers by volume and there except in between using bit pay and he says he still holds his negative opinion
4:30 am
about bitcoin but that chances are your average bitcoin holder is more likely to be a precious metals buyer than a person who doesn't owe me big coin i think it makes sense to target because in holders as customers well andrew schiff his brother and i met up with them at their conference last year in new york and mean andrew plotted this behind peter's back basically with pay course on we've had them on our show a number of times and bitcoin so peter schiff is being dragged into the twenty first century whether he likes it or not he says he doesn't necessarily support bitcoin but that's absurd by accepting bitcoin you're increasing the network which invalidates bitcoin which is supporting because it doesn't matter whether peter schiff thinks he's supporting bitcoin or not for him to be supporting bitcoin you know he can pretend like he's not supporting bitcoin while he's protecting but going but we know what the truth to it are that the genius of pseudo should not come up to has done a number on your head and you finally are being sucked into the vortex that is big
4:31 am
going and soon will understand that bitcoin is equal to gold in many ways and then i predict with the new year will be saying that bitcoin is superior to gold in many ways so this is the progression peter is now stepped on the ladder toward bitcoin apostle to them and what came aboard well is that it moore's law is it called where you know one fax machine isn't worth much but two is worth more and ten is worth the. more and metcalf's law has learned a lot at first to the ever decreasing cost of the c.p.u. going forward so his using it increases the value of it that's validating they opinion of many bitcoin evangelists around the world that it's. you could hate a fax machine but the very fact that you had a fax machine increase the value of having a fax machine to all the other people in the network. point is two things remember it's a problem a payment processor and it's
4:32 am
a currency secondarily it's the accidental currency it became a currency because as a method of transmitting money from point a to point b. it wiped everybody off the face of the earth all the current ways of moving money are obsolete because of big coin and the block chain and because it becomes ubiquitous people figured hey you know what just use this as an embedded currency it is a currency becomes a currency so this is the progress that one makes peter's shift understands now as the protocol that allows for money transmission in a way that allows him to increase his business and pass the savings on to his customers and next you'll understand that oh you know what this is actually a better currency than all the other currencies including gold you know that stuff will come in late in the night and is unconscious mind through his dreams to toshi will visit peter schiff and finally convince him to take that final step into becoming a full fledged bitcoin apostle again he hates bitcoin but he has regrets about not buying in two thousand and thirteen obviously i could have bought them then and could have done pretty well sure i regret not buying
4:33 am
a bunch of them but that doesn't mean i'm going to buy them now. well there's a couple of misstatements there he's saying i could have bought them in twenty thirty now in fact he could never have bought them because his mind wasn't ready for them but going only makes people rich who are ready to accept toshi they have to be able to understand suppose she and peter schiff in two thousand and thirteen was incapable of taking soto she's algorithm on board i'll go. them and the protocol was not able to be presented to peter schiff in a way that would allow him to buy a big coin in twenty third danger that's a misstatement the second thing he says which is incorrect is saying that while not going to buy them now well that's stupid but because it got to go to ten thousand dollars a bit going i mean he says gold is a buy you know thirteen hundred fourteen hundreds going to ten thousand. the minority and that is he's going against the majority view of you know out there on the main street same thing with big coins he i predict this peter schiff will be
4:34 am
buying big coin when it goes over ten thousand dollars per bit going i'm going to bet good coin that this is in fact going to happen well and the other interesting thing is that you've often mentioned in the past about using gold and silver or bitcoin as a hedge against each other and he does say he reiterated that he's still a skeptic of bitcoin and other alternative currencies and that the move is aimed in part at capturing customers who may also be worried about the ability of bitcoins price to rise in light of recent negative developments in the space well again he his mind is being worked but going he doesn't realize that he's like you drop the acid and he's just beginning to take the trip you know talk we have three months of peter schiff will be a full fledged bitcoin maniac now we've got to work on alex jones alex jones as yet to fully embrace big point he's a big point skeptic which is wrong he's depriving us customers the ability to spend money with them he's depriving them of the cost savings they would give bitcoin and he's depriving the globe of having an alternative currency alternative fee have
4:35 am
currencies so alex jones you are the next peter should post one i don't still just next and then of course jim rickards well here's another skeptic european central bank a risky alternative to euro european central bank executive board member eve mersch said during a speech on one thousandth the may that as a payment system in a store of value the euro is superior to digital currencies like bitcoin and in particular he noted that there is the exchange rate risk but as. peter schiff using bit pay would prove there is no exchange rate risk peter schiff never actually needs to see bitcoin even though he's accepting bitcoin pay is taking that with the risk a bit because i think in the risk either. they make instant conversion into any currency what they're just the platform or lao ing point a to point b. money transfer to take place at ninety five percent less than a would in any other scenario that's all that is going on there now that statement from a from a banker is also rife with with fallacies they're saying that digital currency is
4:36 am
like the euro are superior then bitcoin first of all a digital currency like the euro is not worth the paper it's not printed on to quote gerald celente and big coin is not really a digital currency so much as a crypto currency there's a huge difference between a crypt i invented digital currencies and electronic arts in one nine hundred ninety five ninety six with the virtual specialist technology pad number five hundred five zero one seven six but i can tell you from experience that it's not a virtual currency it's a crypto currency which is something completely different so that's again words coming out of the mouth of a banker that makes absolute you know reminds me of something i read an axe that apparently lobster's your name through their mouth or something or their nose or their forehead i forget but this guy the central banker is like a lobster is just out of his face he's making no sense whatsoever because you're in the other thing is he has said that the euro is a better store of value but i want to point out the major deflationary and inflationary risk first of all we have the balun which is of course confiscation
4:37 am
which is deflation that's a deflationary risk to your savings then there is the inflationary risk to your savings of the european central banks bailouts of the of the banking system the bail in is an obvious point in cyprus and this is spreading out to other countries the central bank using the your own electronic currency simply take your money it's a house on a store of value if you just take the money with it going on the block and you don't have that risk so it's not again it's a real statement that it's not worth making it's. egypt who should go back to school or go back to flipping burgers or go back to playing with himself whatever he does during the day because he has no insight into electronic currency currency banking and economics anything by the way there is a risk that your wallet can be stolen your bitcoin wallet but that's not going to be stolen by the government unless you allow them to he also said although interested parties can very easily download the application for because they neither understand how this payment system works exactly nor the risk they run when
4:38 am
using it like we understand the risks of c.d.o. isn't c.d.'s and derivatives of running wild around the world. again this is foolish argument he's saying that we only should deal with interactive technologies we understand how many people can explain how look tricity works when you flip on the switch how many people can tell you exactly how the light bulb lights up out of ten thousand people maybe none maybe one out of ten one out of one hundred thousand could tell you how look this up mean you should stop using electric lights to mean you should stop using all interfacing with the technology because the very little of it is understood how many people understand equals mc squared how many people understand ninety nine point nine nine nine nine percent of all the scientific discoveries of the past one hundred years virtually no it doesn't stop people how many people understand all the frickin thing you're holding works i don't you be able to stop me from work holding it so just because people are too stupid to
4:39 am
understand a bit going work doesn't mean it's not good for them to use it and then finally there is the entire emerging world of the many crypto currencies in the many layers upon the big queen blocked chain and the other cryptocurrency block chains here's one of them that everybody's talking about bitcoins nefarious cousin dark coin is booming someone out there likes anonymous money in only a month a little known alternative known as darkwing has rocketed nearly ten fold of value far from around thirty five cents to almost seven dollars as a selling point darkwing offers far greater and an enemy than mixing up users' transactions so that it's incredibly. difficult to trace a payment to a person and though if you have yet to accept that more and not amiss coin for actual goods and services the promise of dark privacy features seems to have sparked a miniature boom the last i looked the total market cap is forty five million dollars for this dark going is clearly going to be a huge winner it will have a market cap similar to like going i would say for a portfolio of cryptocurrency as you might have fifty percent of bitcoin twenty five percent of dark calling twenty five percent of max going because max time has
4:40 am
a enhanced cryptology that makes a superior in many ways to bitcoin have a few dogecoin for fun and maybe a light coin because it's a popular coin and there is some work being done for like coin but i have a portfolio of these kryptos big coin dark coin max coin some dos coin your whole portfolio of crypto i mean peter schiff the smart guys a businessman he should be making a market in virtual currencies in crypto currencies over there and europe pacific his a business he's got his ideology get the way of making money which he says as a libertarian he would never ever do it here is doing the exact thing he will make money because of it is worked ideology better to go back to capitalism go back to almost go back to libertarianism come come back peter get all the love you can make money with the stuff anyway so finally on this people are worried about the block chain it's becoming quite apparent that when you send bitcoins is not anonymous you have to make it anonymous you have to be have the technical know how to make it
4:41 am
anonymous this doesn't automatically for you said darkwing adds an extra layer of privacy by automatically combining any transactions its users make with others of to other users a feature it calls dark send so that anyone analyzing the block chain has a harder time figuring out where a particular user's money ended up dark going is easy to pull from these levels are a bit going yeah could double from here you know had a new high but dark point is the dark horse that does like secretary of one nine hundred seventy three it is a frickin triple crown winner this is going to make it to the high. her million two hundred million market cap i am sure anyway we got to go stacey so we're going to take up logically adios i have a k. i think it could go down as well as up because i've seen lots of volatility in these crypto markets fair enough thank you because i don't have a whole lot more. to
4:42 am
go to do you know the price is the only industry specifically mention in the constitution and. that's because a free and open press is critical to our democracy schreck albus. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and our crafts to mco we've been hijacked trying handful of transnational corporations that will profit by destroying what our founding fathers once built up i'm tom martin and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on in the world we go beyond identifying the problem try rational debate and real discussion critical issues facing america five ready to join the movement then walk the.
4:43 am
secret lumber tour tim curry was able to build a new most sophisticated robot which on fortunately doesn't give a darn about anything tunes mission to teach music creation why it should care about humans and we're going this is why you should care what you're only on the t.v. dot com. this is still one of the most isolated and mysterious places in the world old legends of cannibals make men. people afraid to travel here i think. europeans have been here for less than a hundred years few people know what secrets lay hidden within these forbidding mountains. they said a bunch of cannibals killed in a group of shamans a russian plane one of the biggest in the world flies over a couple of guineas wild mountains for the very first time. villagers have never even seen a car. what will they make of this huge steel. european workers are told never to.
4:44 am
truth. see. we speak your language. news programs and documentaries in spanish matters to you breaking news a little tonnage of angles couldn't stories. you hear. the spanish. visit. all right welcome back to the kaiser report imax keyser time now to turn to a big name in finance to point out peter htat chief scientist at the crowd funded dark wallet peter lives in toronto and is also involved with master coyne and zero
4:45 am
cast so you are really in the crypto space peter yeah and i work for a whole bunch of these companies as consultants call it for free right this time a dark wallop what is it and why is it talk about dark while i think fundamentally dirk well it's kind of this space go prototype privacy features you know it's the what of the what we paid that well so we used to coin you'd much rather use in a way that you have the choice of privacy and turkle navels you go do it and we're building in technology subsequent join the stealth fighters is that what you use big queen in private way so that you know you may know that i sent you money but no one else does ok so one day the crowd funded film that went out talking about dark while you know it's very cryptic itself and it's kind of shadowy and dark and mysterious so i mean is there is it's any mention the privacy issue i'm also thinking about dark coin which is a coin which goes through i guess
4:46 am
a tumbling process where transactions are completely anonymous so let me ask you this question how is it different than dark coin and dark wallet are they different how would you dare them they're quite separate projects coin is roughly speaking one of these alternate currencies that people being creating like going but with more macs going is another vietnam go on but with sort of a dark hole interface bolted on you know support to remember that dark wallet it's one piece of software the actual technologies that make it work they've been implemented in other clients as well so you know it's dark hole isn't your only option for privacy it's just kind of at the forefront of the developments. ok now i mean look you here and i'm guessing that you're younger than i am i mean i think that's a fair statement and you're part of this new generation that has really grown up in an era of cryptocurrency and in an era where all these stablished rules and regulations in the way people view banks and money seems to be completely changing
4:47 am
so from your point of view of somebody who's now really coming of age in a period of crypto currencies how do you see this crypto currency wave what does it mean to you personally and how do you think it's going to change your life over the next ten to twenty years well me you know i'm very politically moderate it's a rebalancing a rebalance area well the rebalancing from what to what i mean what is out of balance now that needs to be rebalanced well i think we've we still have extremism about privacy and people saying we shouldn't have any privacy should radical transparency nuclear governments let's go see that in the radical transparency close to us not them and you know you've got to remember that in the western world except for endurance of years free speech privacy you know democracy these are all values that we hold theory politically moderate values people kind of forget that ok so you're saying a return to rights of privacy and cryptocurrency isn't dark wall and dark coin are
4:48 am
are step in that direction and the new crip bitcoin automatic teller machines are a.t.m. that does seem to be taking off all over the world is that true yeah i think it seems to be for now i mean it's i don't know what use the stats are always interesting to find that out after the launches but you know i think it's important development as is stuff like little bit coins where it's person to person trading or my ceiling is another example right son i look at the coin desk for example is a great blog and it seems like every day there's a story of somebody other bitcoin a.t.m. you know it's all over the world these things are happening and at the moment you know people have been talking about twenty fourteen is the year wall street discovers bitcoin and we're seeing a lot of v.c. money pour into. startups pay just got a thirty million dollars d.l. at one hundred sixty million dollars valuation of course tony galit be introduced the whole concept on the show three years ago and is there a conflict now between let's say the establishment of wall street and the more radical elements if you will of the crypto movement well the way i describe it is i
4:49 am
think the risk is people forget what is between bring if you go in central is because if you go in and barriers if you go and add all the stuff that what you know already exists in people master core you know master card visa will throw in no one has any advantages and i worry that investors are going to forget this and push bitcoin in directions which centralize it which take away what it can do in and for chichi centra systems cost more to run and centralized ones so once you take away the vantages well they've got a big disadvantage which technically slow sufficiently just having big server farm off these headquarters well let's talk about a couple of these an initiative that seem to be introducing centralization into what is inherently and artistic decentralized approach and i'm thinking for example of a company that just came out last week was announced during the bitcoin foundation
4:50 am
get together circle yes circle so circle is a company that they call bitcoin for dummies that it's intermediating really the transaction you don't even touch of bitcoin you have no idea there's bitcoin it's all basically dollars they talk about in terms of the language is very different is that a step forward or is that a step backwards it's another i'd say if they go get other people to follow their. and decentralization you know much more regulated model well then it's a step backwards but frightening as the options find nothing gets choice if you choose to use or all that's ok if they try to go and impose their choices on you that's a pro me let me let me ask question a different way do you think if the primary if those of bitcoin and decentralization were to prevail would a company like circle flourish. it would not flourish as much as they want to there's you know there's regulatory capture after all and if a company like circle has a business model of regular leading trucking because removing the privacy well they
4:51 am
may be the one company in the space to succeed in the same way that we often see you know cingular payment providers get the relationships with government that are exclusive were much better off with a free market system where you choose to use you want if you wish to use transaction or third parties involved as a guarantee or as an escrow that's fine but that should between you should nothing to do with it ok let's talk about the free market in places like africa where crypto currencies are being embraced like wildfire and mobile payment systems are in place and people love the fact and the remittance business which is huge where they're getting a set of western union charging ten bucks for one hundred dollars transaction or sending the cash and i'm just using a figure that off the top of my head but a somewhat large figure the transaction costs are actually close to zero so this is where you see the incubator of really taking hold in seeing what it can do to transform an economy is that true and if so can you talk
4:52 am
a little bit about how it is transforming these these economies i hope it will be true in the future i think we're progressing towards but i think the big takeaway from places like africa is the side you contribute eries this idea of corruption review three capture you know the only way that the existing payment companies in africa can charge say ten percent per transfer because there's only one of them there's no competition you know they've got to bribe their local governments for exclusive access which something like because that's inherently fighting against forty billion dollars or so is extracted through the moving the money from one continent to another so that would be forty billion dollars financial in the pockets of these people in these countries and that's a huge amount of money for someone living case of you know five dollars a day suddenly you're adding another dollar per day i mean that in a huge increase in their cash flow per day let's talk about specifically dark wallet because that's the price. ejector associated with closely right now and one of the biggest issues regarding bitcoin adoption is the fear of having your
4:53 am
wallet stolen so this is a story you hear often so in the case of dark wallet how does this fit in is that a problem already of a justice well i think what's interesting with this notion of safety whether or not your wallet is going to stall in frequency or is it really comes down to how you use it and how you want to go and prevent that i mean the one hand you can go and say we're going to involve regulatory officials we're going to make a weights then seize the funds later well that's of course what paypal is done in many places it's a failed business model you know this is why pay pal has could shut down a council of trade center because of this model of if something bad happens we'll see some money later well they don't really have any way theory of whether something bad actually happened did i steal the money to you not seen the goods you know or is what some like their quote saying is well look let's go in bring back personal responsibility let's go in and add ways for people to keep their pick when safe on their own dark wall to the very beginnings of the stage but it has features
4:54 am
such as multiparty control with accounts so if you and i have a business both of us can go sign off on any funds getting sent it is a fundamentally different block james out arc is one point six million while change info ok it's actually wallets yeah ok so that's a huge player in the space how is dark wallet different than block i hope in the future it won't be the way how do you mean i hope i can go in prototype technologies and dark will of the. docks as well for instance the coin joint technology that dark wallet is working on what changed it info has less sophisticated version of it and is dark or progress is i certainly hope i can go talk to that walk in that info people and help them make their site more secure as well and more private. right so you know your is that a competitor of yours they don't see it that way i don't see that with i mean there
4:55 am
isn't a for profit venture right you know i'm not getting paid they're not getting paid to other than to just you're just spreading they call ayn as a philosophy of i would you call is it pure libertarianism i would say pure i would say it's very politically moderate notion if you know people deserve to have the believe the trends are truly trends like privately in a free market so you don't consider yourself you describe yourself as being politically moderate. big point however brings out political daggers you know it's a political debate how do you how do if you're forcing you to kind of get into the political fray or be do you believe that bitcoin the genius of big going the genius of the toshi. will prevail regardless of any conversation any one house on the political sphere is just the algorithm was released and it's just going to change the life as we know it and that there's nothing anyone can do about it what do you think i don't think that's true unfortunately you know if governments really wanted
4:56 am
to they couldn't spend all the miners and they could destroy the system fundamentally that is that off three of the fifty one percent of this is interesting because in other words you're the first person i've talked to in this space that believes that's possible nobody else i've ever talked to believes that governments could band together to fifty one percent attack in other words they get all the hash power their combined computer powers and therefore would this affect italy grab all the bitcoin right so it would be shut down as a product of you know what you believe that's possible absolutely. ok what's the probability that they might do that it's hard to say i mean i think it's a political question i think it does require multi country cooperation it just requires a lot of money and they would put in a huge server farm to go and do this fifty one percent attack is there a point where the big coin is ever safe from that. well as it gets big enough when politically important enough to keep in mind chance or something they would attack to destroy. it's that they would attack it go and force it to be centralized force
4:57 am
it to apply say no your customer rules or you know very restrictive rules on can i go send you say one because i can send you ten ok well you know peter we're running out of time we'll have you on a again soon if time and you can come on but this is interesting to me because of everything i've read and every guess i've talked to over the past three years or the first guy to come forward and say you know this fifty one percent attack or need by governments is not only doable but you do you really have to kind of plan for it because if it gets to be a political hot potato they're definitely trying they may ok well on that note we have to say goodbye but thanks very otherwise report thank you. all right that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser report with me max kaiser and stacy herbert i'd like to thank our guests peter top of dark wallet if you'd like to get in touch to it as a kaiser report until like time by a. school
4:58 am
the tried to. pull out of. your life for the short changing every minute. let me know law oh well. my a lot like it. was think that's setting goals lenski says it's still. sometimes from nothing which led this season and it's important. to look just keep up the story you'll be shocked if you see a stage eight look to be dealt with but the speech was.
