9:06 am
now one of the reasons that tensions have been deescalated is because on saturday which was the first year anniversary of the great march of return protests things remained far quieter far calmer than many feared they might be in fact it was extremely remarkable that there was actually a statement by the israeli army spokesman praising hamas for showing restraint for trying to calm the situation down at those protests on saturday now on sunday even though people in gaza have expressed a sense of optimism and they believe that these negotiations will actually be successful at one point there were two rockets that were launched toward israel they did not land however in israel they landed in the gaza strip no injuries or casualties were reported at the moment folks in gaza hopeful that they will be able to see that these negotiations have been successful this all coming at

9:15 am
so companies and governments need to talk to each other but also as a third constituent we've included the person the set assessors in that the consumer and old person they feel a need to be discussed because their rights are really important we see that the weapon if you should be more user centric. users can have more control of their data and partly because at the end of the day if governments don't do what they've committed to and or companies don't do what they should do then it ends up having to be people protesting in the streets people voting by changing the products they use are people complain or complain to the government whether it's shakespeare something far more hip there are plenty of great poets out there and instagram is boosting the popularity of persia reading in london just a couple. well it was lonely wanderers which.

9:21 am
right up to date with the headlines here on a desert you got more news coming up right after inside story. a president a comedian and a survivor ukraine votes for a new leader whoever wins it harris a conflict in the east and the elite khana me and a tense standoff with russia over crimea so who will ukrainians choose to leave them through the next five years this is inside story.
9:22 am
hello and welcome to the program i'm civic apollo and now ukrainians are voting for a new president thirty nine people are running as candidates but many see a choice between three main candidates there's the president petro poroshenko who's hoping to get another five year term he's seen the conflict with the separatists in the east of the country grind on despite a cease fire agreement he's failed to reverse russia's annexation of crimea and he's also been blamed for the corruption that persists the survivor is yulia timoshenko a former prime minister who is spectacular fall from grace but her to a prison sentence there's a comedian a lot of the lenski he's an actor with no political experience but he does play the president on a popular t.v. series john hall has this report. this is the unexpected from drama in the race to become ukraine's next president that will give me as
9:23 am
a linsky is an actor and comedian whose campaign appearances are stand up comedy act. what he lacks in actual policy or political experience he makes up for with his on screen persona in a popular television series he's a teacher who blows the whistle on corruption suddenly finding himself yes president of the ukraine that's. great. he's famous for one thing young people see him as an anti establishment outsider figure which they like and this funny thing. and i think that this is a likeness personality but it seems even he isn't sure if he can be president or not we don't know we just want to believe that he's a better option previous presidents with businessmen politicians and lawyers maybe a comedian can make a difference. many feel the political unknown zelinsky could hardly do
9:24 am
worse than the current president petro poroshenko he came to power after russia's annexation of crimea vowing to end the war in the east and sweep away corruption the billionaire confectionery king here immortalized in bullet casings and his own sweet and chocolate wrappers has bowed to pressure from the international monetary fund raising utility prices that hurt the poor and he's in a circle he's implicated in allegedly corrupt weapons purchases. if you see corruption i think we should talk about this that's why reason all of these. painting this is a conversation with president bush first of all and if he will be elected for the second time i hope that it will make him to sink of all what kind of place in the history he wants to to get. also in the running after two
9:25 am
decades in politics and three years in prison is former prime minister yulia timoshenko many of her supporters at a final rally in central kiev were bussed in from the countryside drawn by a pledge to consume a gas prices the focus of this election is the economy. promises being made about the war that's the toxic question for all the candidates no one has also learned a lot has. no one wants to take responsibility for five years of war after a people's rebellion against russian influence and corruption and ukraine is a country that seems stuck unsure now which way to turn toward a hole in kiev for inside story. and we can bring in our panel joining us from kiev on skype this alexi her and he's a professor of comparative politics at care of the academy in moscow we have dmitri babich political analyst at racine. news agency and the london lit give oregon
9:26 am
russian and eastern europe analyst at market welcome you all of you welcome to the program great to have you on this is going to be a very interesting and quite a dynamic discussion i hope let me start with you mr her we have quite a very defeat of candidates running in the selection and particularly our top three that we've outlined our our correspondent joe hotline just now what would you say is the main issue that is driving the voters here that will influence how they choose their president. well i can definitely tell about zat but it seems to me first of all when i read talking about presidential elections in ukraine we need to understand it we are not a presidential it but it's a mixed system and the presidential elections will have alimentary elections so we will have to listen to government was a prime minister and president is to go exist was
9:27 am
a problem it insists sense the president cannot monopolized by our in ukraine as it happens in belarus or in russia when some other countries so presidential elections are definitely ordered but zan we are to wait for as a result overfull element to the elections to see what the final configuration of political will have in place second i would like to stress that in ukraine elections are always democratic so it's very difficult to predict who will win. my certain point in every single depends on the ball to full left or was the opinion of the ukrainian people and finally i would say as it resists campaign. orbital abrar us an agenda that has variable chances so all the main city candidates in favor or europe or moving closer to us if we analyze insists remain gendered it so for president but of centers the main success is that ukraine survive ukraine
9:28 am
survive after it was ours and for people when their russian aggression started it started it was an obsession of grainy as it was anomic blockade ok was there and i didn't say i'm going to interrupt you there i i just wanted to quit a talk about the issue that is driving the voters we will go into the nitty gritty of these elections and speak about that event to our candidates yeah i think it's a been brave because i'd like to get every once and the first and then again if you go into ok ok if you're would like to generalize source the main topic. what an beast zecher dog is social economic situation and says a dog is fighting excellent ok thank you we will now move on to mr babbage can you tell us how moscow views these elections and do they have any preference on which direction it would go well. with more score the problem is that the whole
9:29 am
spectrum all political thought that political life in ukraine that used to be sympathetic towards russia you know that by joe reagents the communist by their. all of these political groups were bache basically banned after their so both revolution of my is done in two thousand and fourteen so right now there is no candidate that would be absolutely acceptable that would be friendly towards russia during this election all three main candidates were just mentioned they all prickly their intention to move your brain towards nato and russia said very clearly a few years ago that this is a red line the russia will not allow your brain to join nato because that would mean ne to me silas will be three or two minute distance from moscow this is something that russia views the surete line as for the issues of this election i
9:30 am
think the most important issue is war and peace but i don't think it's going to be decided at this election because mr poroshenko and his friends in the ukrainian parliament basically they introduced the so-called deal q patient law which proclaim saraj and aggressor and which makes it very difficult to feel that means agreements on peace in the east of ukraine because the means can dream and sprit supposed amnesty for the rebels and the special status for their russian speaking territories in the east of ukraine none of that just possible under this new ukrainian law and of course none of that it's possible under the changes to the constitution that. make or ukraine oriented towards nato and the second issue easy point to me here i think the legacy of mr parrish anchor is just tragic because ukraine was promised prosperity and the european ization in two
9:31 am
thousand and fourteen the result is that now ukraine is officially the poorest nation in europe it went even further down you know that they gave all of the poorest nations in. europe oft at mr poroshenko introduce your so-called reforms with your soul quote younger and foremost most of the whom cracked up to be corrupt so i agree with alexy corruption is a very important issue but unfortunately if the situation with corruption in ukraine only worsened after victoriano quo which was violently almost up from boeing by them i don't revolutionaries ok thanks for that let me in the long term is give oregon the morgan first given first kelly talk about the view from europe and does see europe have any our will however when have any influence on how europe interacts with ukraine. from the european or western perspective it is
9:32 am
is very important that the new ukrainian authorities both the president and the newly elected parliament which is anticipate its to take place by the end of this year to remain on the euro planty integration part economically speaking this means ukraine a tiering to the i.m.f. reform road map. regardless the populist rhetorical regardless to pledges of huffing household gas price tariffs this is simply no way that ukraine could deal with its challenges economic challenges by turning its back on that reform part it's simply not feasible at this stage so from the european perspective to ensure a political stability and economic stability it is important effectively to keep the status quo at worst but at best they're hoping for
9:33 am
a candidate who will also deal with the corruption issues indeed and that's certainly something i want to look into a little later in this program including the qana me but let's talk about the candidates specifically mr her on we have two veteran candidates a comedian who has no defined policies no experience and yet is very popular what kind of a message does that send and why is that. yes first of all i am now in a very difficult situation because i think i need to hear what the russian call except who is representing grassroot today which is kremlin propaganda russia is aggressed russia is waging war against ukraine russia annexed crimea russia is not electoral democracy which is too cheap to teach us in the democratic rules of the games and how to conduct elections so first of all i would like to stress that we. we have free elections and there are different candidates including brought us all
9:34 am
candidates but it's a problem was brushing again today it isn't because of russian aggression because russia violated beyond block status of ukraine because the national weather will it of the international treaties and by a little bit is that's why this support towards any indication to russia collapsed don't tell a collapse and that's why is it is a very deep jeopardy tical move in say bring on society durance you wouldn't and if we're talking about the what is it don't bust so it's very important to understand that unfortunately russia doesn't stick to point number one. ceasefire ukrainian civilians sell their sell by russian but russian soldiers by russian regular forces by russian weapons and unfortunately it's very difficult to move to the peace in the don't bust when the russia isn't if but awful
9:35 am
of this conflict not an intermediate but an active if we're talking about now if we're talking about city main candidates as a cassette but accent as a main sings the main topic is to prisons and he's a leader who led the country towards economic difficulties and civil war and who is able to move. foreman in this difficult situation for the machine zimmy recitative is a position resident so he sees criticized but essential for not doing scenes and so she cannot exist years in the force fear sometimes this is book you is criticism sometimes is justified but this opposition nice is very for hill is very unnatural and actually comfortable but present as a part of a great intellect and they seize it he green is moving but not as
9:36 am
a down position wanted to see after as an illusion of two thousand and forty and that's why is it would like to invite you faces and say pointed to mr zelinsky who to some east you face and as you rightly mentioned he's really a new face was daughter had no experience in political life so all deaths as a basic background was this city main candidates. mr bobbitt i must let you respond but before that i want to say you up by asking you is there a single candidate there that we that you see will be able to engage with russia effectively but i won't tell you what i think about alexey and he's opinions because i think this is very important during the debate to presume that to presume the integrity of your opponent to argue with her arguments not with that he's
9:37 am
a place of war according i will go straight to your question i would say that until recently it looks like the west was totally supportive of for a schenkel you know been. imposed a martial law or in the hall for ukraine's to regions just you know five months before the election and that this martial law continued for several weeks the west didn't protest so. that the idea that the idea that mr selenski could win this vote it surface just a few weeks ago suddenly the tone of western publications about the landscape became very positive some business outside us who remember all of the government in the early years of poroshenko all of these foreign specialists from the. from i can see in company you know mr dunne you took the form of violence minister mr abramovich rose and he's doing in the form of economics
9:38 am
minister that suddenly they joint. team and the mr selenski it has a go at some chances we would have seen their united states give actually given a blessing to his candidacy when zelinsky mad to weigh their u.s. negotiator or now on civil war in ukraine when he met. crime mr volcker you know could walk or the u.s. . bushido on ukraine and when he mad they ukrainian ambassador sort of the american ambassador in ukraine marriage of and of egypt meant that the united states kind of indorsed he spoke. you know mr selenski it's possible victory for russia maybe it will be easier to talk to mr zielinski because mr selenski is not a shame to speak russian in public please note that in your report that your shoulder tried before our discussion they ukrainian citizens who are on syrian your
9:39 am
reporter's question you know when they didn't speak english they spoke russian you know russian is very widespread in ukraine so far shingles language polish it was a disaster here and tegan iced a lot of people in ukraine and that was reflected in an article for example by political magazine an american publication which criticized mr poroshenko for this kind of language policy so for russia he would be just a new face that we could talk to also probably yuri boyd the fourth cager date who is behind this war in their opinion polls since ukraine is not a free country i don't think we should believe all the polls he suddenly may or may become. you know the possibly even the second during the first round of the race boy core unfortunately participated he basically betrayed the former president john a college in two thousand and fourteen but boy core it's possible to talk to him he
9:40 am
visited russia just recently had the negotiations with the russian prime minister dmitry medvedev form their gas issues but immediately a criminal case was opened to against the boy in ukraine when he returned from more score so for any a candidate that whoever wins this election it will be very difficult to talk to more school not because russia is not ready to talk but because in ukraine there will be tremendous pressure. from the nationalists and from their government agency yes they may accuse president all of our being a traitor being a stooge of moscow that's cokie let me bring in ms give or again as the how important it is is it for ukraine's survival or the economy itself which has been languishing to have closer relations with russia to move in at least have workable relations with russia. if we were having this discussion back in two thousand and
9:41 am
fourteen i would have said that it is really important to ensure that the ukraine receives or negotiated cheaper russian gas and maintains its access to the russian market however since the ukrainian crisis ukraine has done incredible steps actually to balance its economy and also improve the energy efficiency just to give you an example for many years its state run energy company that augusta cry and it was a loss making company was actually a burden on ukraine and public finances ukraine is were paying only one fifth of gas household gas prices was heavily subsidized early unsustainable measures that no government wanted to address because these were extremely unpopular steps equality currency was pegged unrealistically strong against the
9:42 am
dollar again no government revolution or not they didn't want to deal with this issues they didn't want to to let the currency float now coming back to your question directly now. by going through the painful reforms that really had an impact on ukrainian our ordinary craniums. in the long term gains are such that ukraine has managed to lessen its dependence on russian energy imports it has also managed to diversify its export market for example if in the past a few years ago russia was accounting for twenty five percent of the export destination now it's only nine percent european union is by far more important for ukraine and exporters than russia of course. having access to a large market next door is important but it's not where russia where ukraine's
9:43 am
economic problems can be sold to creating economic problems can be sold domestically and if and to corruption and until it archey campaign is in earnest done and the reorientation continues i just want to highlight one aspect of this reforms or is in politics you can sometimes make quick u. turns in the economic world these adjustment can be painful and and longer lasting and sometimes a positive impact can come not in five years but perhaps in ten years and this is why we see that perhaps some politicians are being punished. ballot boxes for unpopular reforms that they have to do they have no other choice ok alexy are on so given all of that what we've heard how important is the russia factor in these elections and how important is the crimea factor in these elections or are people
9:44 am
just going for more issues that hit them at home the economy the price of fuel corruption. no definitely people again as i have said war. and peace and so what was rational is when i was a mean top picks in zicam pain. as i have already explained i have provided they can give you a lot of force which showed that attitudes towards rational thought that when she wasn't for tea and there's no no belief is that. there is a believes that russia is a crips and russia is a good s. an exception creamy end up as interventions of don't and there's not talk about civil war that's what kremlin propaganda talking about civil war this language is not accepted not only by greens but also by by international community
9:45 am
nobody to wells under century finally i would like i would like also to stress that very different it's very it's fun to hear represented the well russia which has one man. for. twenty years and who have four or five more so who would all of a century in ukraine and democracy we have and this is recognised by his will and elections are you green weyrich and nice as free and fair in two selves and forgiven and i am pretty sure as it will benefit the same this year zero all of the vest sylvester as a less than ever present it was a meeting was main political. political leaders or a complete says no surprises that it's not a blessing i would say sylvester is not supporting open any candidate does this
9:46 am
