i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten like colored timestamping each day. eighty five percent of the global wealth he longs to the ultra rich eight point six percent market saw thirty percent just last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per circuit first check in and get cornrows to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need to remember is one one just shows you can't afford to miss the one and only move. manufacture consent is still public will. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the crime.

3:04 pm
highlight the beginning of putting this first term his visit to bundestag where he talked about russia not being an equal partner in the west eighteen years later and we're still not partners why do you think nothing changes in this regard. it's a good question i can find the answer about what i would start you remember before he spoke in the blender stock sink through three months before the first time he met george bush and there was this meeting. george bush said basically looked in the eyes in his eyes and got a sense of his soul you remember that i remember and i remember well about cain said to. with mccain said i looked in his eyes and i saw three letters k.g.b. if i remember this correctly that put it. at the same time added at the same time is honesty is direct and he has great interest for his country so three months
3:05 pm
later two months later i think it was in the dirge a bundestag. it was an interesting talk but the main the main point he said ok he said we are talking we want to get to come together but at the same time we distrust each other and we have hiding and we are trying to play games and i think from the very beginning on that from two thousand onward up till today there is this distrusts about intention and at the other hand there is obviously the call that the coalition of interests and interests are the main point in the whole in the whole in the whole fight here i think up till two thousand. eight more or less. we were trying to get along then we had two thousand and eight georgian war and then we had the ukraine as well it was always on one side the fight for
3:06 pm
democracy and freedom and on the other side the evil reconstruction of the soviet union but it was at the same time of course interests the history you put it it's of a country is basically food by the history of a country by geopolitical interests cannot make interest current events but you have to take this into account and russia had this and the west had that it was very complicated it was a misunderstanding from the very beginning i think there was no a cream and after the collapse of the soviet union when was it in december one thousand nine hundred one that russia would be no become another part of the west it didn't work out their interests and i think the west miscalculated this interest and played their own includes only to russia of course to try to get through with its interest and put in both the one who was underestimated but he pushed it
3:07 pm
through tearing this latest scandal around the script out poisoning to resume for instance present it russia where then are to meet him and that's not like a first time west speaks to russia like that moscow's reply has always been done talk to us like this don't tell us what to do this keeps repeating in russia west relations this problem of condescending lecturing and in a moralistic tone why. why is a good question. i think it's the pending on. the moment you are in the very and i think this is simply political i could taste but it's not about the tone it's about the methods i mean you see the arab countries like or like india or china are always you know a lot more neutral in the way they communicate and we notice that i was very careful with words why why do you think the west western politicians are so prone
3:08 pm
to public scolding of others to near to teacher like behavior i think that we watched russia to a certain extent as a kind of you know handicapped school students and who have the reach so to speak. the level to to to to to become adults i think that was an early attitude in the ninety's and to a certain extent it is still an attitude and on the other side it's a political weapon we still forget that russia is that russia is grown up they are not under eighteen anymore but at the same time as we argued in the ninety's you have to do this you have to do that you have to and if you do that it will work this is you never changed because we consider us as having won the cold war and that gives us a kind of. moral superiority and the other the other hand the response of russia is
3:09 pm
quite direct to say you have a national national proud at the same time. which tells you go to hell. do you think the west has come to grips with the fact that russia is not irrelevant anymore like it was after the soviet union collapsed. they have to because we have a multi-polar world and not so much a uni polar world anymore it doesn't matter to whom you are talking to if you talk to a call she will tell you. with some hesitation nevertheless but she will tell you we have to talk with russia because russia is an important player and without russia you don't get the. new treatment in syria that in the meantime we have so many different players at the same time that neither america nor russia can guarantee find a solution but the condition is they have to talk to each other to get
3:10 pm
a final solution to convince the others around them to help them you have iran you have turkey you have saudi arabia you have a number of players in the meantime and that makes the situation so dangerous because. you never know how of when the escalation so to speak. reached is its final point and you something is happening and probably it's an escalation you don't want but you get if you look back to syria on the very moment you had an escalation of words but at the very end you have in the meantime what number of destroyed buildings no russian have been hurt and probably now is the chance to talk i think it's a very good chance in the very moment find a solution together because everybody sees it's not working that way germany is a country that is very close to russia and especially with a pinch german past and that relationship is very important saying how it's germany
3:11 pm
at the forefront of the european union angela merkel and putin also have a relationship that endured through the years is this sanctions story the confrontation going to destroy that relationship completely. i don't think that's that's destroyed completely i think the both people are rational politicians and we see in the very moment what i mentioned just before we have a big chance in the very moment to come to terms because you know we have. issues like north stream to the gas from russia i mean we have syria at the same time we have an unreliable american partner at the same time so within europe we have difficulties and i think we have to solve some problems only together and we have to do that so the situation is quite good i would say
3:12 pm
even it doesn't look like that and the market is going to has been going to washington mark wrong has been going to washington. if it's true that putin got an invitation i don't know yet but that gives us the chance to lean back to see what is our what are our interests and to find a solution i think it's better than we think the funny thing in between is us journalists by the way the russian ones and the german ones there was an interesting in research being done just recently that as far as foreign policy is concerned all the journalists are trying to stick to their governments and increase the trama so to speak on the other side it's not so much to in the as far as interior parting says concerned but obviously in foreign policy you have. traumatization by the journalist on both sides as well so in your movie putting was
3:13 pm
described as a man whose mind is not easy to change and who doesn't forget insults or double crossings do you think this personal trait of he swelled the way to political consideration while he forget the confrontation with the west if i chanced is offer to end this conflict confrontation. you know you don't have to forget it but you have and i don't think the evil forget it but he is a rational person on the other side as well and he knows exactly how politics works what is needed if you want to have a long time solution now it's this it's last two so he has another of another look six years to fix things which went wrong to a certain extent it's not only depending on him definitely not but he has a stance and after such a long time of confrontation on both sides i shouldn't use that as this kind of
3:14 pm
testimony so to speak and he is a rational man so i don't see why you wouldn't do that the the interesting thing is . you don't have to take everything personal what happens in politics if you do that then you are lost and i think he's not lost. bradley bridge thank you very much for this interesting insight and for your thoughts we're talking to hubert siple german journalist and author of the documentary film i put in discussing how the world says the russian leader and how it is a fact russia's relations with the rest of the world that's it for at this edition of cell phone call see you next time.
3:15 pm
we're. recruiting.
3:16 pm
the new global economic war is unfolding in the realm of education the right to education has been supplanted by the right to access education low it's high education is becoming just another product that can be pulled and sold so this not just about education anymore it's also about running a business where you could also through sheikha look good is also the kind of fellow we couldn't be. more is the place of students in this business model before college i was born now and i'm extremely more higher education the new global
3:17 pm
economic war. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race in this on off and spearing dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. ministries police forces and city administrations of many countries depend on one corporation and that's what mike was hoping the board doesn't want because of god this is not the guns. you got into this it's just a proprietary software you don't know the source code isn't that it's such a security risk when you have a black box operating in the public eye to microsoft dependency puts governments
3:18 pm
under cyber threat and not only that i think. this is still being. one of. the. things this is. done with. the old vision starting that was instilled in me as if one is up and describes on the phone. about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. you're out to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest this things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each fret.
3:19 pm
but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was again still some more fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not please a funeral the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this really quite different speech is not because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. thanks. let the one. thousand three.
3:20 pm
hundred seventy five. thanks. for. telling me putin is officially sworn in as russian president he's already made cabinet decisions for his fourth to. also this hour an hour to britain's foreign secretary tribes. to washington in attempts to save the around nuclear deal is donald trump's decision looms on whether to quit the agreement and. pull me back. it is only one tries to kill hundreds of interpreters who work for the british army in afghanistan face deportation from u.k. even though they were promised asylum.
3:21 pm
but i welcome you watching r.t. international it's just gone five o'clock in the afternoon here in the russian capital. has been officially sworn in as russian president almost two months after he won the election. well it has been six years since the last seventy and it can even be saying to the number of smartphones in the audience attempting to capture today's event. from ports now from the kremlin and what else was different this time. vladimir putin
3:22 pm
who is known to be sometimes fashionably sometimes not so fashionably late well this time he was right on time with work like a swiss clock i should say and really this ceremony had a very fresh spirit compared to the previous ones for instance the city center of moscow was not blocked off for traffic but instead lattimer putin got a call in his office and then we saw him walk all the way to the east and to this palace now he also rode for briefly with his motorcade and for the first time apparently he preferred to his usual mercedes benz limousine and a new one russian made cortege which literally translates as a motorcade it is a new vehicle designed specifically for the russian president it is in its main feature is how well protected it is it is rumored that it can basically withstand being hit by mortar rounds so this is what we know so apparently it was probably
3:23 pm
the first time that he actually rode that vehicle now he got in here he walked through these magnificent kremlin walls kremlin palace walls said an oath and then he delivered a speech and basically the first thing that we gathered from that speech is that he does not expect this presidency to be easy we have to keep up with the global changes to create an agenda of groundbreaking development so that no obstacle to circumstances can prevent us from determining our future by ourselves from realizing our most ambitious plans with dreams so. well also vladimir putin made a very big emphasis on his on the responsibility he says he's feeling in front of all the people of russia he focused much more on the internal of the domestic policies of russia on the domestic affairs in his speech rather than on foreign policy. for instance he tried his speech to try to be very unifying you tried
3:24 pm
you made of visual a very vivid effort of trying to unite the nation in these in these times. we need breakthroughs in all spheres of life i strongly believe that only a free modern society that is ready for change and innovation that rejects injustice extreme conservatism and excess bureaucracy only such a society can achieve this kind of progress i believe that the main basis for the development of our country is the unity of the free responsible civil society and a democratic government. after delivering that speech vladimir putin was pretty much on his way and the russian government has already disbanded itself it has already we signed which is a normal of course procedure in this situation so the next thing the next big sensations that we could expect is from vladimir putin's new appointments as to
3:25 pm
who's going to go in to be the prime minister of cause this is the main entry as to the key positions the key ministerial positions also many of them remain remain uncertain so this is definitely something to look forward to but after the ceremony the president did immediately get to work on the job of forming a new cabinet announcing incumbent prime minister and former president dmitri medvedev as his pick for the leading position in the new government. dmitri medvedev in britain tried to make putin's longtime sidekick russia's prime minister since twenty one and arguably the most tech savvy official in russia. he's also a big fan of rocky's live. live. like a soldier was eliminated let's.
3:26 pm
listen. is a quick sign of how we got to be in this country second to mom in. law teacher and legal consultant for the mayor some teachers but in one thousand nine hundred seventy and says the end is an election she disapproves of this campaign season winds and yet that it becomes just she's a star couple of years later i see thousand employees she's the first deputy prime minister and then two thousand acres and with a new russian president. dmitry medvedev so what was his town like boswell modernization pushing the reset button relations. military conflict five days south essentially triggered by georgia. but. haven't finished the presidency gifts which is about the future play well with us live the t.m.
3:27 pm
players distance and weathering russia's economic storm in the face of sanctions tumbling oil prices raising the nation's salaries and benefits unless it's not a good might be slim chance the settling of plenty getting elected but if you like the illegitimate by you'll get i don't think you're dealing with that entirely but if it is about the overall number of children what are. some . forty percent of russian. troops do but still sure she would not be good to go if. they do and you are so. beautiful you've got to deal with it. and that's all you need to know if you can just leave it to me. ok let's get some reaction our john rocker and he from a democracy and cooperation and joins us right now good afternoon to you john
3:28 pm
firstly just what was your reaction to the appointment of. his prime minister again is that a surprise to you i was a little surprised but my reaction is that it shows the complete continuity between the previous putin mandate and the the one that's just started today your reporter has just recalled the long partnership between mid-year different putin going back now many years and we all remember of course the famous interim period when medved if was actually the president and this reappointment of mitzvot if we had if by the way of whom it was said when putin became president six years ago that he might not last as prime minister he has lost it and now he will last for another presumably six year period and who knows what will come after that so it's a message of very very strong continuity which obviously is what the russians presumably voted for when they voted for it in the first place sure. and indication
3:29 pm
of succession because. john i was just going to say with that many people voted for him because again the platform was was in it to improve the economy and social benefits for people to people are still hopeful for that but they have been critical to over the last year it it hasn't come quickly enough. yeah that's so that may well be so and while putin's own speech was full of as your reporter said full of you know statements and where the sentiments about the need for unity and progress and prosperity and all the usual things that one hears on such occasions we all know that as you've said in your question there hasn't been enough as there hasn't been as much as some people may have hoped for nonetheless you asked me what my reaction was and it was. to say that of course this means continuity but it also opens up the possibility that perhaps medvedev is after all
3:30 pm
going to be the designated successor because when putin was asked before the election what would happen after this this mandate that began today he implied that it would be his last mandate he says i'm not going to go on forever and if he's not going to go on forever then of course everyone wants to know who the next president is going to be feel no talk of international politics really today again that might surprise a few people decide it didn't need just to purely look at domestic issues. you know i think that's natural really on a case like this because if course the symbolic inauguration of the new old president is obviously a moment for national celebration it's a national moment and the transmission that you showed on r.t. the live transmission which i imagine russian domestic channels probably carried as well you know put the emphasis very.
