at the failed arctic tie up between ross enough to envy pete they were just planning a joint development up project in the arctic but that fell through were darla's he says they were main optimistic. we were not successful in reaching. a set of commercial conditions that were acceptable to all of the companies involved i think the concept of a strategic partnership like this was good for russia good for. the energy markets. good for all of the companies involved. rosneft says it plans to find a new partner to help develop the arctic and energy minister sergei shako highlights the tie up nonetheless triggered the investor interest for this project and that's all we have time for from st petersburg stay with us on our.
it with. you without see it live from moscow a recap now the top stories the russian president pledges drastic measures to create a woman investment climate in the country do centralizing power and defeating corruption are among the goals voiced by dmitri medvedev at the international economic forum in simply has been. no consent no catch us the congress members say they'll cut funding for the libya campaign unless the president gets the proper constitutional go ahead obama's in ninety days of action without sanction runs out this weekend but the white house claims there's no need for can go. consent. and the
palestinians are out of pocket. millions in tax dollars it's left tens of thousands of people without their wages in a move that tel aviv claims is necessary to prevent terrorism. right next to. russia's black sea coast is a red hot spot for tourists looking for a colorful breakaway do enjoy. if you're taking your first trip to russia you'll probably be more inclined to pack a fur coat rather than a bucket and spade but if you have down south to the krisna the region you'll find long beach is and hundreds of kilometers of beautiful coastline literally millions of people flock here every year proof that while russia may be famous for its snow and skiing there's plenty of sun sand and see here as well.
this is the longest developed embankments in europe fourteen kilometers of it and in the middle is this lady a white bride. the hopes dreams and hopes of. then it's a stunning place the results of frame by the background of the caucasian mountains and on a sunny day the seascapes anything you might find in the greek islands and if you want to see the area in its full glory you just have to jump into a cable car. you get a pretty good view on the way up here but i think i want to go just a little bit higher and also it's an excuse to. hear you can find the black seas
equivalent of the london although admittedly this is a little. bit of the most technologically advanced this one safety equipment. there's a big. five minutes to get to the top. if you. managed to cling on for a treat. this is the highest braai on the. meters above the sea level. disco this incredible. maybe a little bit when. they were trying. to restore to arrive here in april when the season can continue into october. attractions really area are good to appeal to the whole family and i wanted to check out one of its newest success stories. people come from all over russia to
visit the black sea coast but if you're looking for a different sort of multiculturalism it's probably a pretty good place to start. a new flamboyant names here this is simply called old park benchley it's not very old it's old but take a walk around and you'll soon get a picture. who needs a foreign holiday when you can come here you got the pyramids of egypt. the temples of ancient greece. and even a roman pavilion all in less time than it takes you to create. architect of exam dialects of open the park back in two thousand and four with a membership plan in mind. we were out to get together many cultures within the space or east west
caucasus gratia. these architectural structures are filled with substance as you look around you begin to realize that the culture of humankind is a synthesis of many cultures races the whole period from ancient designs all the way to modern architecture. alexander has areas dedicated to more than ten different cultures and we. paid all respects to zeus and we found ourselves in ancient egypt. it may be a little smaller than the pyramid of giza but it's based on but it's certainly boasting some fine acoustics. listening he can't have been too impressed with all singing as it probably began to rain. it was a perfect moment lou to head indoors and visit the punk's medieval town and there's
a bird's eye view of the grounds. here we are james this is our territory. is to build a space where architecture and nature into the harmony. to be. if your fortune has something to do with the docs are probably a pretty good place to start and if you go there early enough they'll be plenty of fishermen setting off for their morning catch. one of the best. so that's why we're. going to take the place we can collect down there. sam. will work from the. cruel muscle and. they've been breeding the tasty mollusks for three years but they're already
proving very popular. i can tell you that as far as city is concerned this is a budding market. traditionally people here. know there's a great demand for seafood not only locally but also in moscow st petersburg and elsewhere there were no shellfish an oyster is in the menu bar the restaurants only local people like to cook shellfish for a very long time. so. there is an oyster and once they've arrived to the beds his job begins. but once everything secure the catch has to be loaded into the rowboat and that's where the hard work begins. if you're not a fan of dirty jobs this probably isn't for you each will pretty much guarantees
you a seawall to show on the fingers and plenty of unwelcome guests. little crowds in there as well as good. as about. themselves can be surprisingly hard to find. so this kind of reading program apparent doesn't yield too many oysters they're quite rare and so we've got tons and tons of mussels but only. hidden among them. on a bit of a needle in the haystack. game is. this still huge to muscles locally. and there's definitely no shortage of them. so this is going to be one of the big. you have a lightly the c we're going to run under twenty muscles a few invading crabs and and of course. it's not often you get to eat seafood when it's this fresh unfortunately on an oyster boat there's no
shortage of experience because. sooner or. later over the first three months excessive to try one of nature's great effort. you don't get much fresher than this. not to mention extremely tasty. so i have my long journey over. but i'm not sure that even the most generous marine biologist would count mussels among the small taste of cold screeches swimwear that is intelligent animals. well when you're behind a black sea tough to find. hello to. say hello to zurich. three beautiful. they've been living in
before me here at the dolphinarium for more than ten years and they're beginning technique down to a four. this is probably the best quickest way to make friends i think. this one is green. is the best way to get quickly. doesn't mean having to share that breakfast. with the ladies clamoring for. us. to go. on a roll the five. rivalry still. exists. around two hundred fifty kilos and tips the scales are over three
just rings you can get to russia much earlier it doesn't mean that then nothing ever will. go this amazing. although i could do the lesson or two on how to gracefully exit a clue. to do things for. an obese way. to get my dinner. thankfully impeached dosing is a rare sight along the black sea coast but you can find quite a few unwelcome additions to the shoreline. unfortunately like many other resorts around the world a black sea coast has its own problems with but as they say sometimes one man's trash can be another man's treasure or in this case another woman's treasure. what are the other ways probably in sacks production and some bottles here
you can see waists from shoes production just like us. for that one here that i'm also fall into line and used sacks seven years ago a name in the key for of a gave up her practice is a doctor to become an artist and then mara mentalist. recycling is still rare in russia and discarded litter is a common sight name and has opened the white horse gallery to try and draw attention to the damage the waste is doing to the local area. it's always a pain to see the tone in into a garbage can i try to collect some of the rubbish but of course my efforts wearing them in the trash was not getting smaller many people just don't understand me i don't know how to explain it to. my idea is to make people remember my work and everything that i have taken care of before the litter i want them to remember my beloved black sea and the fish it will be great if they begin doing such things
even better than me i mean or offer to give me a quick lesson in how to make plastic punter stick there isn't there a let's make a fish ok come on we're making a little addition from a news biggest installation a sculpture that's intended to represent the whole of the black sea thirty first let's get rid of unnecessary stuff here is the fairmont gun take a look it's not clear if it's a fish yet but now we're going to shape it look here is the tail and now we're going to color it and it will become absolutely fabulous. so in painting. yes beautiful. turf ect and no you should shake it a little bit to let the paint spread to. let the paint forwards. what breed of fish we were creating but it was pretty
colorful and once the finishing touches had been added it was ready to take its place in the gallery for what we go james and here is here. now you have your own back seat that's right into the sea find a nice place for her hope she'll have a happy lie. to me and think we can transform this rubbish into something really rather beautiful and hopefully the people who say it will think a little bit more before they chuck away that next plastic bottle. but taking a look at that sculpture of the black sea reminded me of another thing i hadn't quite have the time for yes. i've been so busy here on the coast oil must go about my favorite thing to the seaside something that is going to be. it is up here see in parts if.
wealthy british style seinfeld's that's not on. the. markets why not scandal. find out what's really happening to the global economy in these kinds of reports on our culture is that so much about the taxpayers' money winterization make it a lot of people at area b. you're always in crisis will appear with this ten years of. white stream cascading from mountain slopes the e.u. is mesmerized. by this beauty brings death at a speed of more than four hundred kilometers per. step in the launch.
so far a much report have a chance to meet a few of the black seas marine animals but i've heard that up there in the hills there were plenty more who prefer drawing lines at least most of the time. this isn't just an ordinary zoo it's a rescue under a toilet sense for injured alex performing on the most of them is enjoying her early morning ball. full report looks after more than sixty different species i met up with head keeper. until he started working here three years ago because i was a hunter but it seems like the animals don't generally crunches. let's go buddy this is the himalayan band both mellow don't you want to say how long you want to have fun and once he's only ten months old growing like a weed he's a fairly. there when he gets big. he's going to be about a hundred. and i think he's. right i'm having fun and biting everything
in his meat. every careful. but. then if you think blues a handful weightily meters friends next door. is a baby. with a spate of recent births the zoo now has around three hundred animals and they've set up a nursery for their baby pig cats and why can't we all get along like this. my jeans and my shoes are becoming a delicious treat and just a few months ago they welcomed one of the world's rarest animals this little is adam a baby i want tiger. and the son of two confiscated tigers so he really is a little nervous. and you can already see. it's not going to be too long.
before. he's going to turn into the world's biggest cat and a bit of a killer and i'm hoping he's going to be gentle with me. here have been rescued from poachers or from circuses but some come from rather more unusual backgrounds. this is grigori he lived with their grandmother in know what i see he was living in a simple flat for a long time is more than ten years old grandmother has brought him here some three years ago she was a very old woman she brought to bear here in a car without any cage just using a leash she cooked a big delicious cake for him that grandmother is just too old to look after him. just imagine a bad living in a granny flat now. you get a big spare room with me. but never seemed to have such a bond of trust with so many different creatures it was like being around
a real life dr doolittle and nickel in hopes that the fountains of visitors who come to the park take a new appreciation of the animals away with them. having survived my visit to the supposed minor cuts and bruises i figured it was time to visit one of the black seas more sedate tourist attractions then maybe get myself something to eat. one thing you learn quite quickly about the russians is that they love their bread whether it's brown black roy it pretty much comes with everything but we just call it strains in the two years i've been traveling around this country i've never seen one of those. it's a replica of a mill that was grinding flour in this area more than a century ago and with the help of a few modern improvements it's back in business. history of this company is fairly typical of russia. eight hundred ninety five it was nationalized in one nine hundred eighteen. in the one nine hundred thirty s.
it was renamed sickle and hammer and wasn't until the early one nine hundred sixty s. . a few years ago the original mill was stripped transported and rebuilt and the old gears were given a new lease of life. but it really is a timeless bit of engineering. so. i'm not energy. is then converted down here by these wheels. and this one is part of the original century mechanism still running today. and making it is a really simple process the so. and now follow me. here is
a receiving bunker. this week here. now the process is already underway plenty of. time for snow. ok so i've heard of a plan but i'm guessing this is a. milk. bread and they were. this mill may be an example of the region's recent history but they're all relics. that date back to antiquity. this is the ancient city of gold the pier was home to thousands of people until it was destroyed in the third century a.d. and it's one of the best preserved examples. of the one thousand city on the russian coast the greeks who settled here named their city after samarian king and
its ruins cover around forty hacked it's still possible to wander through the so is of great houses and you can even discover the citizens favorite temple a better this would have been one of the most popular places back in the days of because it's the remains of an ancient winery people would have crossed the grapes here the juice then would have come down these forests and into these enormous votes. show you. down here. unfortunately. well we've got now of course is rainwater back in the day this would have held the equivalent of thousand bottles. have been long since deserted but the descendants of its greek settlers are still in the area and they still have a passion for the grape. this is russia's wine country around sixty percent of the crop comes from around this area and about to meet the people who make some of the
best. these o.-u. grapes i believe yes and this is a very important son of you. and his family are almost ready to start making the latest batch of their famous brand name has a price tonight so much depending on the use of stretch i will set you back around fifty dollars but this much of grapes went destined for the. winter and used to my father. oh yes the beginning. because when younis is bringing in the harvest he likes to have a few friends and the old greek tradition. goes to the cellar where it's.
there was a pretty big power of grapes to crush so it seemed to take. the music is supposed to get everyone stomping away in a nice uniform rhythm but lumia greek slipping around on fifty kilos of grapes takes some doing. and i was about to get my reward from them being a foot. so i think. we definitely deserve a drink thank you very much. yes this is a bit you know. he was said to continue long into the evening but i wanted to take a stroll across a number of the regions around months before it caught my plane back to moscow. hole. when it's this windy even plenty of warning won't keep you warm.
and his son max can run a t.v. toss along with him. and off to tackling the dunes it certainly beats walking back to the hotel. it may have been getting chilly but as a born and bred seaside town boy i was sad to be leaving the black sea coast it may not boast the infrastructure of some of the famous mediterranean resorts but with months of sunshine relatively low prices and no troublesome visa receivers is easy to see why millions of russians come here for the summer holidays it's a place to relax bring the family and enjoy the warmest blue water that russia has to offer.
