this week's top stories good duffy must go g eight leaders he would like to call for the libyan leader to step down if russia agreeing to mediate a cease fire in the country's civil war. as the u.s. goes ahead with its european missile defense plan moscow boards the project risks unleashing a new arms race and the. party takes a look at why the arrest of general right cold laddish is causing anger among service to accuse the government of trading its people with europe's favor. and georgia's independence day so bloody big wash the streets after police clamp down on protesters demanding the resignation of president saakashvili.
12:01 pm
you're watching the weekly from our roundup of top news stories in the last seven days my name is kevin owen and it's now eight pm here in moscow first colonel gadhafi suffered a major blow at this week's g. eight summit in france as russia joined voices with nato allies calling for him to quit they declared israel illegitimate and discussed ways to broker peace but there are still differences on syria with russia saying it won't back any u.n. action he's innocent reports. new world new ideas host france but that concept on the g eight table at a time when it looks like the old ways aren't working a war in libya on the front line with the euro crisis in the background leads to questions like this and will sarkozy is the man who saved tens of thousands of
12:02 pm
civilians and bring garcia will be known as the man who brought france to economic ruin and never ending war a moscow g. eight leaders agreed word for word in their declaration about gadhafi saying he has lost all legitimacy now it's understood behind closed doors there was harsh debate on the sidelines russia was asked to step in and broker a cease fire it accepted and will send an envoy and we are in touch with both sides the new forces in gaza and representatives. we haven't broken diplomatic ties but i think it's useful in any case because we're trying to make closer approaches to reducing the reasons for the escalation of violence which is still ongoing we discussed it at the g eight not that creation says that we could laugh you regime has lost its legitimacy he must step down russia's approach to interfering in the internal affairs of sovereign nations differs dramatically from the west which appears eager to back some countries but not others and should choose to intervene
12:03 pm
in libya it does not suit has to intervene in bahrain those and those rational economic relationship political could show not about human. nations agreed a twenty billion dollars to poor package the arab nations that have toppled autocratic regimes and are struggling to build so-called new democracies on the euro there were statements like this could also go up because the euro is you everything that could threaten the future of the euro will threaten europe as a whole so while huge spending cuts continue in an attempt to prevent euro extinction so will the mission in libya and the spending of billions create leaders may. every consensus on khadafi but can the west now afford to push pick and choose politics even further russia's deputy foreign minister claims a resolution on syria won't even be read let alone signed by russia after the disaster in the bia the question now what will happen to the rest of the arab world
12:04 pm
facing revolt for now only syria is a possible target with some g. eight leaders going as far to hint a u.n. resolution similar to libya could be an option if damascus doesn't back down something russia is more than likely to oppose reporting from the g. eight and use the now a r t v france well as the nato jets intensifying their attacks against. the dow he told us that r t the lack of political will from those involved in the libyan conflict is the real cause of the stalemate right now there has to be political solution to this crisis. look. the libyan government. was wrong. i think all it was the accused of all. it was the ship of the balance of or.
12:05 pm
i don't see it was all. lies against if you. well to try to get more perspective on it the libyan rebels leader mustapha abdul jalil told us that r.t. that once again would have duffy's god will be no obstacles to peace. or mere acquirement is that one worker and his son should leave libya among those who served in the previous government that are that are merely refutable people with whom we are ready to have a dialogue so that they can become members of the executive orders of the future libya it's colonel gadhafi who does not support all of this in the first political you prevent us from creating secure corridors for medicine and food supplies the
12:06 pm
intervals needed but once he stops being literal the prospect of a dialogue will open up to an intermediary. just a short ag said there for the full interview you can see here on our team in twenty minutes time tonight. the u.s. is pushing ahead with plans to build up its military in eastern europe but it's telling russia not to worry the new agreement will see fighter jets deployed in poland which what scott says is alarmingly close to russia's borders the missiles are part of the us defense shield them will be in place by twenty eighty russia has repeatedly called for a joint system but washington wants to separate missile shield but the g eight summit on friday did meet with vettel said he's not happy with america's position and warned of an arms race if nobody leverage. what sort of a border unless we reach a deal before twenty twenty when the u.s. and the miss our system is finalized it could trigger a new arms race we have to get guarantees that this system is not aimed at us no
12:07 pm
one gave us any such guarantees we're being told it's against some countries that pose a threat when we ask you these countries are we keep silent when we are asked do these countries have been just missiles no they do not and who has the missiles russia has and the conclusion is easy it seemed to us. it's supposed to be telling me that america's reluctance to provide legally buy the guarantees on missile defense is aimed at stalling talks on a joint system to include divisions within washington well they are talking about how to make this a joint system the question is what does joint mean at this point they're talking about sharing early warning information and other radar information which would be a step forward but before they can get there before they can get to a shared system brushy needs to be reassured that this system is not aimed at it and again nato and the united states need to make a joint statement to russia saying that this system is not aimed at you this is
12:08 pm
them is no danger to you it's focused on dangers and threats from middle east not from russia there is the obama administration which very much wants our cooperative relationship on missile defense with russia and very much wants another arms control reduction agreement with russia certain republicans in the u.s. senate do not want those things so we have to make that clear distinction between what the ministration wants and what some members of the senate want so focusing on what the administration wants what russia wants they both want cooperation on missile defense and they both want to move on to a new arms reduction agreement and given that i think there's enough common interest to move that forward. next tonight several people have been forcibly arrested in washington for dancing at the thomas jefferson memorial and those held thing to the team's american presented coca she says it was slammed to the drone by offices the flash mob was organized through social networks as a protest against a recent court decision that forbids dancing up the monument the ban came in during

public taking the law into its own hands is an unwelcome trend growth in the north of the border there are a lot of enthusiastic who are striving to eradicate this horrible evil by any means possible the women actions don't comply with the law the law is against them for sure we can eradicate this evil but only by legal methods there are over five million drug users in morden russia past amounts of money has been blown on reducing drug demand and treating addicts a sadistic so just getting more and more gloomy. this is how some moscow activists are trying to stop the mess in the country with waterproof dye they must do as they say will have to hide on the public for at least three weeks some are skeptical about their methods are others even accuse them of all the goodies but the antidrug bit different is argue their form of justice is war fit if it helps

we know that since the middle or the end of the nineteenth century the majority of glass years are receding it means there is a general warming over climate antarctica provides a unique opportunity where scientists can get a firsthand look at how this warming trend affects the local ecosystem some greater amount of fresh water is coming from the land to the sea which forms a fresh water where on the surface of the sea water fresh water is lighter so there is some problems with mixing of the water coral which could possibly influence the structure of. plankton zooplankton and krill are the main source of food for the majority of life in antarctica clearly over the last thirty years in this region the amount of ice which is critical for coral survival in the winter time has declined that means that the area may not support the amount of
12:26 pm
cruel in the future that it has supported in the past penguins species i believe penguins and chinstrap penguins are declining in this region principally due to that decline in coral even though the overall global trend is pointing to what is in fact global warning some scientists are saying that we're living between ice ages and this is all part of a natural cycle in fact there is some evidence to suggest that we're at the beginning of the next cooling trend. no no because i mean indicator on the glass here is an equilibrium lane altitudes and it's the altitude where the accumulates in the minds of snow equals the males of the mines if they sow to chew to get hired it means that the climate is getting warmer and if the altitude gets lor it means that the climate is getting colder since two thousand and six this altitude keeps getting lower. and well scientists have been keeping track of how the glaciers have been reacting to changes in the environment they say it is just one part of
12:27 pm
a much larger system we have to keep in mind we don't have a situation where climate change is in the same way all over the planet it's somewhere it's getting warmer some where it's getting colder and somewhere there are no changes at all at the same time which tendency occurs in which area is also changing so if the climate here and right now is constant in the future that's kind also change although not all scientists agree on the levels of climate change most believe that it is becoming increasingly more important to monitor what is happening on our southernmost continent antarctica is a truly spectacular place it is changing rapidly and more knowledge about what is changing and why can only help all of us understand other areas of the planet that are going to change in the future so we might have a chance of being prepared for whatever comes down the line in antarctica sean thomas barty. more than
