bulletin around twenty minutes time. hello this is our international from moscow it's nine pm tuesday night here and my name is kevin irwin with our top story for you officials say bad weather and pilot error or the likely causes of the plane crash that killed forty four and left eight injured in northwestern russia on sunday night the russe air flight on route from moscow to petros of course crashed into a road just one kilometer from its destination our correspondent tess recent reports from the scene. right here at the scene you can still see behind me the emergency services so they are still picking up parts of the plane that we saw earlier well from what we know the early reports of you know the a plane was flying from moscow to patches of wars here in the northwest of the country and if you can see behind me there's a road it had landed perpendicular to the road it was on its way so it's the
airport which is to my left it's about two kilometers to the left very close and right behind right beside this road rather are homes residential homes which luckily were not hit now if you're in terms of survivors recent reports we have five of those survivors already in moscow to be treated for their injuries but three of them are still in very critical condition and will be staying here at local hospitals for the time being now there were also for foreigners on board there was once read a dutchman as well as to ukraine as a family of four with a jewel citizenship u.s. russian citizenship now of the first on the scene right now is very busy with the first on the scene because it happened just before midnight local time just before eight g.m.t. the first on the scene were witnesses and they did try those who could it did trying to save as many people as they can. three people out of iraq each.
day were carried out people from the. road another man reached. maybe not. everything. everything was going by color. as to what exactly happened it's still very early but the statement made by officials airport here of aviation authorities it was said that the plane was flying off course by about two hundred meters and had descended way earlier than it should have and according to the statements made by the ground control here in the support they said that they had asked the pilot to make a second approach because of low visibility and the bad weather conditions the pilot according to them had said he will try to make this first approach and he said he could do it but of course the white record. quarter that is has already
been a found and. this will be the actual communication in the last seconds before the crash. investigators continue their work so much of the tragedy of debris there is spread across a three hundred meter radius of flight recorder has already been found. recordings are being used forensic analysis is being carried out looking into several versions of what calls the tragedy these include the human factor such as an air of the crew on the ground service in severe weather conditions technical failure and several other potential causes. the plane was said to have hit a ball to the power line and it had actually cut electricity for the neighborhood here and the people still don't have electricity now as for the actual plane itself it does have quite a bad reputation be. to eleven months before in fact a russian the transport minister had said in two thousand and seven that this is actually an obsolete plane and should be replaced within five years however there
are those who would argue that in most of the plane crashes that happened in the past for this particular model there had been twenty eight crashes this one included most of the time the reason behind the crash compounded of course by several factors but usually it's human error that causes such crashes. which i don't think anything would go wrong with the plane itself in future years of operation the triple zero one three four has proved to be extremely reliable aircraft in previous catastrophes human error was always to blame and the same is true here can and should have made a second landing approach this is exactly what happened to the polish presidential airplane the survivor the families of their of the five that are already in moscow and three here are these those who are still here we expect the relatives to come and to see them here as well as the relatives of those that have been killed forty four that were in the crash now in terms of a conversation or they had a deep interest rather from the right wrist area which is the airliner that will
carry them back to the airport is a voice they will receive about two million rubles that's about seventy one thousand dollars that's insurance for those who were killed now authorities both in moscow as well as local authorities said that they will also provide financial aid to those who have survived and here right now actually they had to declare three days of mourning and we do see some people still coming here with some flowers bringing them to the site of course one test for a center there says navy asian expert he told us there are too many facts that exact cause of the crash right now. you know there's all sorts of factors here to come into this with this story one of those is whether they're getting the right sort of information from the ground controllers that we have course in question with getting the right sort of weather information as well about some other key points. and also whether they were involved so i throw in for a radar with
a controller that would take a good track from the aircraft heights and so on because of course around airports we know where the various obstacles are through to have an impact on the safety of a bombing or a takeoff so provided the had all that information if. you're watching r.t. from moscow coming up in a few minutes when fighting terror leaves them or tell you a strong attacks in pakistan and yemen keep claiming civilian lives causing an uproar among locals and sending them into the arms of the taliban a good report coming up on plus the life threatening cost of health care with only a few lucky patients best interest with a lot through your life the reporter the struggle for a multimillion dollar treatment of a deadly disease. next up just a day after admitting killing nine civilians in a bungled airstrike nato has been accused by the libyan authorities of causing at least another fifteen deaths alliance confirmed it carried out another bombing but
has not responded to the allegations of civilian casualties at his briffa national as the latest from tripoli for you. and other day has brought more death and destruction to libya a large private compound west of the capital tripoli has been leveled reduced to rubble in apparent as strike. rescuers have discovered the remains of fifteen people according to libyan officials. he has destroyed along to general who are the other cudi one of the people closest to colonel gadhafi he was among those who took part in the military coup to bring the libyan leader to power forty one years ago the general escaped injury but most of his family died in the attack. because. this man is talking about little alcove one of the grandchildren of the general and one of three kids killed
in the incident the day of the bombing the family had gathered with friends to celebrate his fourth birthday. libyan civilians climate is going to act in the airlie hours of this morning killing fifteen people including children are. there is still the mothers. but. the number is fifteen people nato has denied these claims just as it's never been to the death of more than eight hundred others believe in government says were killed by their bombs the nine people killed in sunday's bombing of a residential building in tripoli i mean the all the civilian casualties i can all it's by the alliance which claimed a mistake technical failure a former pentagon official says the only thing clear about the nato campaign is the
mountain casualty toll and damage it's inflicting on the even people they try to achieve a certain level of humanitarian effort and initially but the protracted bombing is now increasingly hitting civilian targets and it's creating a very negative reaction i think it does raise the question of what is nato's role continued role going to be there as discontented actions and crazies are the voices become more and more than out to the voices of the libyan people. and it seems that the more anger they feel about nato the more they support their leader. saying that it's going to split seconds. and this is such a. challenge it was it's. best to. be consistent with the united states this was
done that was i think. we will all you want to deliver on this is tonight or. i think what's certain is that. dying. raif national r.t. tripoli. and there i can tell you we've got more footage of the devastation following the bombing it is too graphic for us to show you here on the air but we given the choice if you'd like to see the full picture it's on our you tube channel at youtube dot com slash r.t. . news today violence is once again flared up. these are the images the world is
seeing from the streets of canada after. corporations rule the day. the greek government which is trying to push through harsh austerity measures right now facing a no confidence vote in parliament later tonight it's survival is a critical first step in securing a new loan from the e.u. designed to prevent it defaulting on its debts and triggering a eurozone crisis if i knows where this is a given greece two weeks to force through tax hikes and spending cuts in return for a twelve billion euro lifeline the conditions though are deeply unpopular with the greek public let's discuss this upcoming vote now with only peter bergman from the labor party joining us live from brussels mr berman very very reproducibly on r.t. you're a strong proponent are you of breaking out greece why do you think it is so important to greece avoid a default. well you know if greek would default. it would be
a domino effect for perhaps portugal spain because it would clear message to the markets that the euro zone countries are not ready to see greece so which country would they be ready to save in the end it would be the crack down the end of the euro zone as a one whole with with the southern european countries you would get a market song and i don't know what you what else would have but it would be a terrible blow to the european unity and to the european economy and it would be a catastrophe for the economy of greece but it isn't another bailout simply stating off what may be the inevitable anyway and throwing good money after bad. it is inevitable to help the greeks out of this crisis of course the little last time it didn't work. no because the ministers of finance and that is something they are to blame for the ministers of finance of the eurozone did not show enough resolve and did not take the right and radical decision to how greece out for once and for good
they gave one portion under conditions and were constantly negotiating the next next phases now the greek government is to blame to any greek opposition is to blame because they should show national unity and understand the necessity of meeting the conditions that have been set by the i.m.f. and by the eurozone in the run up to this no confidence votes not just over your shoulder where we were seeing pictures like pictures coming through from athens of people making their feelings known on the streets there. they're not happy the greeks are they going to say maybe you're throwing him under the euro train here just to save the troubled currency because if you do pay all this money not you if the greater e.u. pays or this money the great people are going to say they're going after labor frankly savage austerity laws and the tax rates for generations are going to be awfully high they're not going to be happy. no the greeks are not happy nobody is happy actually in the euro zone because we have had to save the banks who are
ultimately to blame for what has happened in the crisis of two thousand and eight the financial crisis the banks did something extremely wrong they did not save themselves but what we do need is make the greeks understand and i think most of them do understand that you cannot live with such a huge debt on your shoulders you have to get out of it now fortunately the greeks can raise much more taxes than they do now and they started already last year they raised two percent more taxes than they did the year before it went from thirty seven percent g. and i g g d p to thirty nine percent g.d.p. which is a huge increase in one year time this is very harsh for the greek is very difficult for the greeks but it is unavoidable and i think that. a tax on the banks which would put which would. make the burden of this a bit lighter for the greeks a tax on the banks in europe would be an important step
a financial transaction tax with which we could we could do something for the creates a lot of countries in difficulty looking at a previous example just picking one out the air maybe an outright to fall could be an option for greece i'm thinking back to the 1980's thing here well argentina was awful trouble they're about to default police did prove that a nation can devalue its currency with the dollar at the time and become a competitive economy in just a few years it managed to turn things around by blowing it by itself but i can't greece now i think this is a wrong calculation if greek would step out of the euro and default on its steps then many many firms employers would be bankrupt to greek in greece because there. is also expressed in europe the country would go bankrupt europe the greek banks would go bankrupt it would be total poverty for greece for many many years to come for decades so this is not an option what would be an option however is that the
eurozone says listen this is these debts we will take it over for you we will give you the euro loan with a low rent acceptable rent not the twenty eight or twenty five percent rent that the that the market would give you know an acceptable rent you have ultimately to pay this back we will see later if greece will be able to pay everything back but it is necessary to get out of this crisis this way and you cannot ask greece to step out and to accept to become a developing country within european union or right size permanently page of the usa from brussels close to being on the program and they give us your views on this story tonight. you're welcome well so we'll give you is their views on it as well arty's financial guru moskos he says that greeks are being fooled into paying off a debt they're not responsible for if you'd like to hear more about that more from the man and you can catch more of his thoughts on the scandals beyond the economic turmoil in greece as he sees it at seven thirty pm g.m.t.

when i got this letter i was so hopeful it meant that my child would live. there waited weeks then months in early june a bogus health took a turn for the worst and he died never having seen it on his truck. most people agree that losing a child is the worst thing that can happen to a parent but he was assessed it's not the worst thing for her is to leave the rest of her life knowing that her child could have been saved but the treatment was there and these exorbitant money was found. that tape or administrative procedures whatever you call it. was never given a chance. to say there was absolutely no way to speed things up their own region where you live and leave an impoverished mostly agricultural province in central russia a little treatment would have accounted for about
a quarter of all how fresh cities. were the treatment of this boy in military terms is equivalent to almost all cancer surgeries in our region and we're talking about thousands of people yet we still made a decision to allocate this money but before this we need to conduct some budget restructuring and to hold attended by it now these procedures are almost complete and we expect the drug to be here by the end of june or it's already too late to how the air we keep in mind the thing in noting with this theory kilometers to the south at least seventy year old peter was also diagnosed with conscious syndrome. a few years before the damage becomes of rapper bo his parents believe she saved their son they have to step in to the. new single family can deal with this disease on its own the cost of the drug is simply unreal the local authorities often refuse to cover. this one think the state has to house

only five actual militant leaders. in a number of civilian casualties that result because of the drone strikes are extremists like the taliban and al qaeda and other groups in pakistan can recruit new members and they're doing that. many pakistanis are furious at their government for helping the americans kill their own people he accused their leaders of doing that in exchange for billions of dollars from washington americans on the other hand are not too happy with what they get in return for their billions more in to support governments a large was when to say enough is enough most governments lie to each other that's the way business gets done washington now sees yemen as the most dangerous outpost and he's planning to step up drone attacks on the country establishing a base in the persian gulf specifically for that purpose especially now when beyond

means increased thorens direct investment or flow of money and as soon as the mood or the rule turns in the market and there is a risk off sentiment or risk aversion then just as quickly as the money came into russia it flows just as quickly the the only thing obviously the mind differentiate here is that obviously being rich of natural resources or will bring predominantly amongst those russia has a slightly different different nature of the impact they can play out on its economy so while the central bank mind signs its policy of raising rights to battle inflation and oil stays relatively high in some of its products russia probably shouldn't feel any more effect over and above what it's already said. let's have a look at the markets now oil prices reversed from an early age gangs as traders are easy about greece's parliamentary confidence about light sweet is trading at
