really is day the adoption of russian children by u.s. citizens will no longer be possible after president putin signed the measure into law a tit for tat response to america's sanctions against russian officials which it sees as human rights violators. as more of the diplomatic spat. you have to understand that the law the so-called dental magnitsky law actually deals primarily a with imposing travel and financial strictures on the number of american officials and persons who have committed crimes against russian citizens and only only part of the law actually bans the adoption of russian children a by american citizens it has been in part inspired by the case of a russian toddler who was adopted by the american family in two thousand and nine and died in their custody several months later after his father left him in a locked in the car in the blistering heat for nine hours the russian lawmakers
2:08 pm
feel that the american law system does not provide adequate adequate protection for the russian kids and also does not punish those responsible for the deaths of russian kids for example do you think of his father adoptive father walked away with a fine aside from this new law russian lawmakers are also pledging to improve the lives of your friends and also improve foster care situation in russia but this new particular law is seen as a response to the so-called magnitsky act which was adopted in the united states just a couple of weeks ago. which entails a list of russian officials whom the united states believed to be involved in the case of ciggy magnitsky a russian lawyer who was charged with tax evasion put in for livery confinement and then died while in custody now siggy magnus his family friends and several few unwise of his ations believe the charges against one of these two were trumped up and that he died in custody from severe beatings these two acts are seen as the

latest developments in the ongoing a tit for tat split diplomatic battle which seems to be going on despite the a reset button pushed several years ago. iran's rolling out the big guns in the persian gulf we talk about that soon two rounds of the take you must see maybe drills in the strategic strait of hormuz to show the world what it's got if trouble comes calling. that's the same in a couple of minutes time also two in our series looking back at twenty twelve we focus on the year in syria and what it's meant for its people and the president who failed to bring peace to become the. next pope the egypt's president morsi has made an attempt to ease political tensions in the country calling on the opposition to engage in dialogue but his offer was met with skepticism since it came shortly after the launch of an investigation into his three top opponents the chief prosecutor is now citing allegations that opposition leaders including nobel prize winner mohamed el baradei incited their supporters to topple morsi earlier this week it was announced
2:10 pm
a divisive new constitution was approved over sixty percent of egyptians in a two stage referendum the opposition though claims the islamist drafted document in trying sharia law and says only got a yes because of fraud neil clark's world affairs contributor for britain's guardian newspaper he explained was why morsi doesn't feel secure even after winning this referendum. i think he wants to sort of deflect attention from the economy because the underlying problem plate the biggest we're facing is the economic crisis one of four egyptians are without jobs poverty is on the rise he just ended subsidies on fuel which means that the prices of gas and electricity are going to rocket and so this is a kind of a sort of smokescreen for him and he was very keen to get the opposition tied up in the legal challenges to it to sort of stop them from focusing on opposing him on the issues where he's very weak and i think also he be worried that you know a sizable minority thirty six over thirty six percent of people voted against the constitution and the fact seems to be that that he said is on the way. and i think
2:11 pm

2:15 pm
everyone is flooding in. purchasing right away gun stores all across the u.s. are reporting record sales just two weeks after the tragic shooting at the elementary school in newtown americans are scrambling to buy the same type of weapon that adam lanza used in the connecticut shooting plus high capacity magazines and a lot of them panic buying trigger it out of fear that the white house is out to ban the weapons but this time the words need to lead to action no a r fifteen for this customer all sold out at the store while prices on line have gone through the rules have been going for a thousand and fifteen hundred eight hundred dollars to twenty five hundred three thousand dollars even in some cases it's just the most amazing gun buying spree i've ever seen so many gun retailers now quite cynically refer to thieve ministrations ben talk as the obama gun stimulus that's how good it's been for
2:16 pm
their business so how do you go from a president with a tough gun control agenda to someone gun dealers call the greatest gun salesman in america the manufacturers of semi-automatic rifles report that their market has grown thirty percent over the last four years states like north carolina iowa you have seen a one hundred percent increase in gun sales over the same period in the wake of the tragedy in newtown one of the country's biggest ammunition suppliers said they sold more than three years worth of magazines in just three days although president obama himself has so far failed to act on his pledge to ban assault weapons his words have certainly provoked action just not the type he may have wanted for someone they say is against firearms. going to great job for us. a review should be a third term in order to sell even more weapons many dealers hype up the gun apocalypse an aerial for the band they would be more. regulated stark.
2:17 pm
stark. but many of them don't actually see any drastic changes happening any time soon after all any significant gun control measures and up in the past ultimately clashed with the second amendment of the constitution and were subsequently scrapped. ancient tale of will genia and then is taken and we follow him or that next year i'm sure i guess now the end of the year in iran is a massive naval drills held in the straits of hormuz one of the world's biggest oil shipping routes warships submarines and jet fighters are taking part with the aim of proving to runs well equipped to defend its maritime borders the moves come as the west builds up pressure of iran's nuclear program piling on sanctions against the country around all the few months ago it could well block the strait but snavely commanders now say that is not on the agenda professor mohammad marandi from tehran university explained why the iranians don't think there's a danger of
2:18 pm
a military confrontation in the near future. in the sense that western countries are brutal and civilized enough to carry out an attack i think that that's clear to the iranians the fact that western countries are imposing sanctions and an embargo on it on iran they're trying to prevent iran from even importing and exporting medicine and food stuffs by blocking the central bank and there are shortages of some medicines right now in iran and people have died so the fact that the western countries are willing to kill ordinary people and to make people suffer i think makes it clear that the idea of carrying out an attack on iran is something that they would contemplate if they could but i think on the other hand the iranians believe that western countries are much weaker today than they ever were before the defeat in iraq and afghanistan the setbacks in fact that israel had in lebanon and gaza make as well the economic crisis in europe in north america make it highly
2:19 pm
unlikely but the iranians have prepared themselves and i think that itself has been a to deterrence to war so the i think in general the iranians feel that a military assault on iran aggression would be highly unlikely the fighting between the syrian army and opposition forces is intensified in part of damascus and they rebels claim they've targeted the presidential palace with shells now meantime russia says the refusal of syria's key opposition coalition to talk with the government early paves the way for further bloodshed at a meeting in moscow both foreign minister sergei lavrov and international peace envoy lakhdar brahimi said that dialogue is the only way to resolve the conflict love also reiterated that although russia condemns the methods used by the syrian army in the war it will take no part in regime change is its response to the leader of syria's key rebel group who demanded moscow apologize its what it described as support for president the sack. yep and emotionally i understand that mr had tb is
2:20 pm
probably not very experienced in politics if he's looking to be a serious politician it is in his interest to hear our position from us and not from the media that sometimes distorts information just so i'll repeat we're ready to talk to all opposition forces but we start from the premise that they should not only think about their own ambitions but also the fate of the syrian people and if they think that russia could play a role in the country's tragedy they should meet our representatives with no preconditions actual notice and staying with syria next to our reporters who are on the ground throughout the year recall the events that shaped the country twenty twelve. it became fairly apparent after
2:21 pm
a massive regional arab spring and in the wake of that the next context of a pro-democracy movement and a revolution or civil war was out of what was happening in syria when you see some politicians there and the media just. cracking down on people you think but what about the other guy on top of the politics and diplomacy that are simply too important to ignore. i remember i was a training session of the syrian football team and the coach was very angry with how his. team he was swearing from time to time and then i move my head like this just like this and i saw two helicopters flying at a very low altitude and firing we were at each other's hotel restaurant close to us there was a group for rich syrians playing cards law from smoking and living life as usual and just the news before that as me and my colleagues were live in the local t.v. station there was an almost lost a few blocks away most likely terror attack most likely people have been killed and
2:22 pm
what struck me was the coexistence of those two. realities the reality of death and the real sort of life most interesting interaction for me with our side happened before and after the interview obviously and that's often the case. i asked him if he's afraid. he said no. he said no i'm not afraid that's a moment when the you believe the person or not and the only reason you know if he's right or wrong is intuition or i think series becoming the next iraq it's a country that is totally distant from them where they. don't surprise or shock anybody and like in the case of iraq told this harm was done to syria with a substantial help of the outsiders on the guise of democratic and.
