economics for an instant petersburg committing himself to organization rights and corruption. they are watching r.t. and weekly news review welcome to the program the man who has taken up the poison chalice greece's new finance minister has admitted he faces a real war his biggest challenge is convincing angry greeks to face more austerity cuts to secure a new bailout from europe while it happened it was among the desperate measures used to appease those offering fierce resistance on the streets of account of what ortiz sarah ferguson caught up in the middle of the protests. well the clashes between the police on the protesters still going god give me something to cancel the state you can head the cigar building fired into the crowd you can see it is
12:02 am
such an insult to such clarity that was killed at a time. people watching people staying out of the game of the police trying to find the pilots still breaking out so if i see still i love the people on the street to see nice people just didn't like the cosmos and they really don't want anyone still that it's been said that the people who took the fight for breaking the families of people still moving back on to the central state even though you can't make us think such as by the place they turned out to take us to get it for places that are seen as it is the ragged of economic situation isn't happening that positively would. be right and the police need to. see that kind of enough around to take us out somebody can see that happen they are the people that really tough incident. was such a horrible. thing at the latest let's look at
12:03 am
a set of. times right now. we're not going to be able to listen to the kid because the police robots really. he can really see the tensions between it's a people thinking since because the police are they getting ready to retaliate it's . thank you. look at the situation carrie say they're trying to the police are trying. they're managing by the looks of things to push back the police actually of the century scar itself there's a lot of the protests to throwing things so i guess. we spoke to some of the main organizers from the t. union to organize protests today and they said that they wanted it to be peaceful until the end of jena so any of these measures will cause see the police killing of take out into the crowd that incredibly hard to prevail in the face not so pleasant
12:04 am
for anyone there's lots of people getting medical treatment around the play but the violence is really a rock thing and we're not entirely sure if these people when you got off that are provoking the police actually part the neighbor you said as we said the people we spoke to said they wanted it to be peaceful and we have seen up until now up until earlier today when that provocation happened when the police started to try and push them back. reporting that the euro skeptic and. for us says the reason politicians. in the u.s. to save the banks. one of the reasons that everybody is so determined to keep greece in the euro is so that the banks don't have to take a serious hit on their faulty mending policies so there's something has gone seriously wrong with the banking system it's almost as if there's a whole other holy alliance of politicians and bankers versus ordinary people and
12:05 am
i'm sure that's what the people on the streets of athens today feel like don't think the banking crisis is over i suspect but it's hardly begun and in many cases it might have been better to do what iceland dead and say look these bags go bust these people lose their jobs these people lose their money that's unfortunate about life and i suspect we're going to regret keeping the banks afloat and imprisoning countries like greece inside a currency union which they're just not suitor. about greeks express their anger at facing further cuts germans out there less fierce about having to pay for it again later this hour german m.p. klaus peter wilson explains why he thinks you countries should take responsibility for themselves. you treaty. was regulated that there must be any bailout because. otherwise you. you will. ruin the applique finances of
12:06 am
those countries who are contributing to it. as long as each country is responsible for its budget it has to take full responsibility and the only right answer to that is no bailout. to libya now where at least two civilians have reportedly been killed by nato air strike but a residential house in the capital tripoli alliance has also admitted to mistakenly attacking rebel forces it's not how many people were killed in the french before incident but this works or supply bombing rather than travel some of it just as russia's envoy. was on a visit there he also told the rebel stronghold of benghazi as part of the peace program mission play here said both sides are willing to talk but the alliance
12:07 am
should first stop its starts. with the flow of. tripoli is expecting to see an immediate cease fire in for a peace process can begin it's also refusing to discuss the departure of colonel gadhafi from the political scene there is a dialogue going on between the warring sides but for those talks to bring any result there's a cease fire must be put in place and international mediators need to keep regulating the process and. one thing is clear russia is very welcome as a mediator in tripoli and in benghazi we will keep working together. well miles the former british ambassador to libya says whatever happens persuading gaddafi to go run an easy task. happy is very tough he's been. defending himself against all kinds of attacks over many years he's been in power now for forty years he's very skilled at protecting himself and he would be
12:08 am
easy to persuade him to go but certainly isn't anyone who could replace it with he's unique nobody will want to replace him but of course there will be a future after gadhafi naturally as the region in every country which is quite common when you have a powerful leader who's been there for a long time people what will happen when you go you know the same with everyone from stalin so that wherever you go in the world you find this phenomenon but there will be a future for libya after gadhafi don't worry. as a result of the nato airstrikes and indians are suffering from a shortage is the fuel long queues are stretching from every petrol station in the capital tripoli. reports the operation to ten people a chance to kind of developing appears to be backfiring. it may have some of the law or just oil reserves on the planet but these days labor is also got some of the longest keys at its petrol stations the international sanctions imposed on the
12:09 am
embattled colonel's regime to not include a few and. that major is targeting tank a lower is suspected the fuel might be used by gadhafi is military forces with roads closed factories at the start and foreign workers long since gone from the war stricken country is facing its worst energy crisis ever the new realities ordinarily when drivers now spend vast amounts of time here in for a few months ago this became the media in the country people have been lining up to fill up their cars even days but this line is a little different compared to the gas station at the end of life here is given only and barker is a universe just student and has volunteered here to help organize the process she stamps a few russian boots which allow individuals thirty five liters a week she believes it's a great idea to have women on the station is. alesha names of the women have too
12:10 am
many things to do they don't fight each other world queuing and never should change of the year is now in the year so we're in able to serve up to nine hundred cars a day in the light of the look of. this line is long but others are ruben longer petrels to cheaper than water here just a few cents for litter it's just that is often in short supply. if there is no fuel we have two little cars and richland wintry appeals it could be days. women only gas stations is one of many innovations supposed to ease people's lives in a country who cares there are also special plans for ambulances and police cars. on the middle surrounded us but we should move on so we. trying to do our best to help people get by if we give up will die of beauty or a lot of those seeking to oust colonel gadhafi may have been hoping the hardships will incite people to rise up against
12:11 am
a leader but instead it only seems to be fueling people's hatred towards what they feel is western imperialism and need to help and they do damage to our city destroyed our life they told us they want to save a little is that the way to seize the people tell me this is just a crime. while the war in size try to find their way out of months of devastating conflict ordinary people looking for a way to just leave the everyday lives dreaming of our times when these nightmare would be with a distant memory. tripoli. the revolution in egypt at first seemed all successful and vicious stern wait in libya since hosni mubarak fell in every seven thousand people in jail. rulers among them protesters writers and dissidents freelance journalist who's in cairo says the revolution to install democracy has so far changed very little. the trials
12:12 am
have been fast it will in the case of some of the people who got now are they describe the trial taking place in the kitchen with the district attorney conducting the trial holding a remote control for television in one hand and a taser in the other and chasing them when they didn't read the statements they've been given correctly. so in these cases i mean if we hope that there's a retrial but it seems it'll be a result of political pressure occurs it won't be because of any sort of legal safeguards that of being in force at the moment is there's been no real progress or on any issues that motivated the revolution i mean some people are saying we have to wait and stage a lot of the elections which take place but it in terms of freedom of speech it seems that the this is pretty council of armed forces while declaring itself sort of guardian of the revolution is while championing themselves as you know the
12:13 am
saviors of the revolution they're intent on maintaining as much of the old system is possible. here with our table still ahead this hour cleaning up from the scene as reactors you look at what's happening let's take a minute. i say just. thank you actually takes. us to the u.s. is accused of using political pressure to extradite a jailed russian businessman. into just a few minutes. though a state run economy in russia this week president outlined his vision of a nation's future international economic performance and petersburg during business leaders and politicians to discuss ways world into voting their economies and somalia. karmas they sent based on stifling corruption and decentralizing power and government reforms all goals voiced by president mediated at this year's
12:14 am
international economic forum here is think petersburg where how russia is going to attempt to become one of the world's biggest and most effective economies was laid out this does we shouldn't hesitate to say goodbye to many bad habits we can focus only on a step by step development it's a mistake we should focus on the following improving the investment climate in russia to create new jobs in the regions making progress in the fight against corruption the creation of a modern police service and over security forces improving the effectiveness of the justice system and finally the modernization of government applying modern approaches and the decentralizing of power of course the main bad habit as the president calls it is corruption which he says is choking russia's economy this was his message to the country's officials that don't do business according to the a lot. of conduct in our secrets and the noose around with the neck of those who practice corruption should be tightened on the whole of russia or agrees with this without any exception but corruption is very difficult to deal with them in the
12:15 am
government should be purged of corruption in a more decisive way and for that purpose we should enhanced the way those suspected of corruption are dismissed from public service another issue that's hampering russia's economic development is it not being a member of the world trade organization lately we're hearing from a lot of officials that expression to the w.t. over russia is possible by the end of this year the president agrees but says only under very specific circumstances. the inaudible we have long been ready to join the w t o more than many other countries small or large everyone is perfectly aware of that still we are asked to make an unseemly large number of concessions this kind of approach is unacceptable russia will not agree to any evidently unfavorable solutions and of course presumably. one question on all of the minds of the business executives innovators and world leaders will president medvedev run for reelection well it was their first question of the form and this is what made.
12:16 am
sure i consider it appropriate to tell you whether i will do it or not i will come out and serious this forum is not the best place for something you can be sure of is that i will be able to avoid making a statement i will have to sell the people of russia and anyone else who's interested about my decision. you will not have to wait much longer. every story requires some kind of intrigue the boys will be no interest in living. so let's keep the intrigue a bit longer. and certainly no intrigue surrounding what platform it better what is wrong and if it doesn't know if he's running for reelection it will be all about modernization reporting from st petersburg and he's now a party. attending the forum was the chinese leader. he said the world economy is still recovering slowly reform. is needed to

12:20 am
a claim here in this country we feel that this actually undermine the security of the czech republic and europe as a continent and so we think that it's completely contradictory such a system here in europe this system without incorporating russia with talking to also other world superpowers china like india or the following or the pirate that will be the biggest world economies in the following years is really going to make a lot of tension on the global scale and so it we should be wise and just start thinking about building security mechanisms and structures that will include all the big superpowers not just. over the last century the u.s. has established hundreds of asian bases around the world next hour we'll bring you a special report on this expanding web and the risks posed to the countries hosting the. through a substantial degree and one form or another socialism has spread the shadow of

human regimentation over most of the nations of the earth and the shadow is an approaching a whole different. in the early twenty first century military bases the network of military bases all around the world forms the empire that the united states is trying to build it's astonishing most americans have no idea there are more than a quarter of a million or more than two hundred fifty thousand u.s. troops stationed on these bases all around. we don't apply bases or america we don't have any british base we don't have any korean base we don't have any french bases or you know we just all american bases in. there are the noises our north sea doesn't bother us at all because they're all bases but for other people it's almost like a cancer here for these people since the end of world war two the spaces i've been

12:23 am
kind are going to be an incredible burden on the efforts that are already underway to try to clean up the water or be contaminated because they are now running out of space to actually store the contaminated water in the fukushima in the immediate vicinity of the plane and i believe within two weeks they're actually going to run out and they're trying to get a system online for treating the water but apparently the test for that is going to be pushed back another few days it's already been pushed back from last friday so there is no such thing as a safe level of radiation exposure that any level of radiation exposure increases the risk of cancer and however negligible that risk with any particular person on any particular date any particular spot when it's averaged out over a large population like is living in the fukushima region unfortunately means there will be over time an increase in cancer rates there and it's really just
