why not. find out what's really happening to the global economy. large on our. great to have you with the headline. russia's economy small tonight as president dmitri me to that of pledges a drastic measures to create a better investment climate in the country speaking at the international economic forum in st petersburg also warns that corruption and excessive state influence in business and trade threaten the country's development. also u.s. congressman threaten to cut off funding for the paying saying above always acting illegally in not seeking formal approval to extend american military involvement.
ninety days the white house denies it needs permission from capitol hill. and a new wave of protests in syria as the towards a third round of sanctions against the country germany and france meanwhile say they will put pressure on russia and china to support a new resolution in secret with critics fearing it's part of the buildup for another media starting to venture. up next it's our special report looking at the russian black sea. if you're taking the 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 chrism of the region you'll find long beaches 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 resent the hopes dreams and beauty of the beach. and it's a stunning place the results of frame by the background of the caucasian mountains and on a sunny day the seascapes can rival any thing 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. to 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. appear you can find the black seas equivalent of the london although admittedly this is a little more retro. going to the most technologically advanced roi 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 brought on them saw a black sea coast meters above the sea level. discovers incredible. maybe a little bit windy and a bit wobbly. to restore to arrive here in april when the season can continue into october. attractions for me 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. new from boy names here this is simply called old park specially 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 alexander alexei of open the park back in two thousand and four with an ambitious plan in mind. we were out to get together many cultures within the space or east west
caucasus russia. these architectural structures are filled with substance and 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 pyramids 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 where we all want to be. but 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 the morning catch. one of the best things to me about. so that's why we're. going to take the place we can collect it down there. sam. will work from the stir. so 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. and now 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 on the menu bar the restaurants only local people like to cook shellfish for a very long time. and once they've arrived at the beds his job begins. so they were in the right place. but once everything secure the catch has to be loaded into the robots and that's where the big. if you know. this probably
isn't for you each will pretty much guarantees you a seawall to show on the fingers and plenty of guests. little crowds in there as well as going to stop. themselves can be surprisingly hard to find. so this kind of reading program apparent doesn't yield too many oysters they're quite rare so you see we've got tons and tons of muscles but only. among them. on even the needle in the haystack. this still huge to my muscles locally. and there's definitely no shortage of them. so this is going to be one of the big easy of the light be to see we're going to twenty. a few invading crabs and and of course. when you get to eat
seafood when it's this fresh unfortunately on an oyster boat there's no shortage of experience because. for. me the most romantic thing to try would have nature's great. you don't get that 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 to screech is. where there's intelligent animals pointing. 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 of the dolphinarium for more than ten years. beginning technique down to a four. this is probably the best quickest way to make friends i think. this one is great it. is the best way to get quickly. to share their breakfast. with the ladies climbing. in a row the. since.
job for ngs you can get to russia i tell you it doesn't make you happy 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. and a beast 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 the black sea coast has its own problems with lets up 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 will also fall into line and used sacks seven years ago a name in the queue for of a gave up her practice is a doctor to become an artist and amar mentalist. recycling is still rare in russia and discarded litter is a common sight nina has opened the white horse gallery to try and draw attention to the damage the waste is doing to the local area where born it's always a pain to see the town in into a garbage can i try to collect some of the rubbish but of course my efforts were in vain the trash was not getting smaller many people just don't understand me i don't know how to explain it to them. 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 lexie 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 bunter stick their isn't there let's make a fish ok come on we're making a little addition for name is 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. yes beautiful. turf ect and no you should shake it a little bit to let the paint spread. let the paint
for. exactly sure 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 you would go james and here is here. now you have your own face like see that's right into the sea find a nice place for her hope she'll have a happy life. to me and things can transform this rubbish into something really rather beautiful and hopefully the people who see it think a little bit more chuck away that next plastic bottle. sculpture of the black sea reminded me of another thing the time for you. i've been so busy here in the coast oil was to go about my favorite things to the seaside something that is going to be . it is up here.
more news today violence is once again flared up. these are the images and seeing from the streets of canada. china operations are today. seventy six hours of intense fighting. six thousand days. of beach front battlefields several kilometers long. and now there is only one person who cares. you see we are surrounded by garbage everywhere but also there are. on this beach which of course is the very most appropriate signification
a symbol of everything that's wrong with our goddamn government allowing not only garbage but. where so many guys died. a new battle is going on. will the history be protected. return to terra what julian cooper story on our t.v. . so far on my trip i 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 preferred drawing. the least most of the time. this isn't just an ordinary it's a rescue and a retirement center for injured alex performing animals while. he's 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 we're animals don't generally crunches. let's go buddy this is blue the himalayan band boat don't you want to see 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. is going to be about a hundred. and i think he's. having fun and biting everything in his meat. every careful. that's it but. then if you think blues a handful weightily meters friends next door. is a demanding baby. with a spate of recent births the zoo now has around three hundred animals and they've
set up a new baby pig cats why can't we all get along like place. my genes in my series of 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. and the son of two confiscated tyga 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 sort of as in a bad living in a granny flat now. in 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 hopes that the thousands of visitors who come to the park take a new appreciation of the animals away with them. having survived my visit to the safari park with minor cuts and bruises i figured it was time to visit one of the black sees 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 ripple 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. the history of this company is fairly typical of russia founded in eight hundred ninety five it was nationalized in one thousand eight team. 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. the power and the energy. is then converted down here by these wheels.
and this one is part of the original century mechanism still running today. which. we get. and making it is a really simple process so. now follow me. here is a receiving bunker. this week here that's now the process is already underway plenty of. time for a smoke. ok so i've heard of a ploughman's lunch but i'm guessing this is a. milk. bread.
this mill may be an example of the region's recent history but they're all relics of the 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 a 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 tipple i bet the 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 crushed the grapes had the juice then would have come down these forests and into these enormous votes. show you. down here.
unfortunately. always go now of course it is rainwater but 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 on about to meet the people who make some of the best. these. grapes i believe yes and this is a very important son of the. fish. and his family are almost ready to start making the latest batch of their famous.
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 my father. oh yes the beginning. 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 plunge. you supposed to get everyone stomping away in a nice uniform rhythm but learning a 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. she was sent to continue into the evening but i wanted to take a stroll across a number of the regions landmarks before i called my plane back to moscow. hole. when it's this windy even plenty of wind won't keep you warm. my savior's would coast journey his son max who run a.t.v. tours along the genes here. i'm 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 minutes of rain in resorts but with months of sunshine relatively low prices and no troublesome visa or
