for a good evening which is joined us it's just after eight pm thursday night here in moscow. international our top story a high level of worldwide nuclear disarmament that's the proposal from iran's new president at the u.n. assad rouhani also took the chance to call on israel to join the nonproliferation treaty report that's got the latest from new york. the iranian leader said that israel is the only non party to the n.p.t. in the middle east and encouraged israel to join the pact to ensure that the region remains a nuclear weapons free zone he said no nation should possess nuclear weapons and there are no right hands for these wrong weapons the iranian leader went on to say that any use of nuclear weapons is a violation of the un charter and a crime against humanity he said there are only guarantee is total elimination now rouhani was speaking about nuclear weapons he said. this is he also called i'm
sorry he also called for a conference a high level conference to be taking place on nuclear disarmament within. every five years and what we're seeing here is this new iran iranian leader that has come to new york to engage with the international community really seizing every opportunity he can to try to show that iran is being transparent is trying to be a key player and apparent willingness to resolve international concerns about its own nuclear program will be put to the test in the coming hours foreign ministers from the five permanent members of the united nations security council and germany will meet with iran's top diplomat divides raef on the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly now the meeting is aimed at paving the way for the first round of substantial negotiations on the nuclear issue surrounding iran the iranian leader said that it is iran is ready to offer unprecedented transparency of its nuclear facilities and may allow the international atomic energy agency to possibly assess
iran's possible military dimensions to prove that the nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes is not aimed at building a mom but of course there is a reason that iran is trying so fiercely to engage the international community it is suffering now under crippling sanctions that have been piled on the country year after year from the international community because the. trash mean he was not happy with the way iran was dealing with its nuclear program said the country wasn't being transparent enough so at this point iran is trying to engage the u.s. and its western counterparts in hopes that beside these international sanctions that iranian citizens have been suffering under for so many years are eventually left to a correspondent in new york who were political analysts covering up for serbia told me he believes the iranian government genuinely wants a diplomatic breakthrough he added the process whereby he has received you know a popular mandate as a result of the elections as well as the green light from the supreme leader and so
on in order to negotiate on the nuclear standoff and you know he said that a lot of the issues are on the table he is willing to negotiate without precondition and so on so i think that you know there's a sense of optimism and in among the reigning in leadership. unique opportunity right now in order to cause a breakthrough in the nuclear deadlock and we invite you stay without you for the latest from the u.n. general assembly in new york. court in russia's port city of moments because remanded over a dozen participants in last week's out to greenpeace protest in custody they'll stay in jail too until the end of november for scaling an oil platform against drilling in russia's waters. details. the activists who had been operated on board to their eyes breaker at the arctic sunrise seems like they're getting the
most most of them are getting the two months for luminary confinement however the spokesman for the russia for the russian prosecutor general's office has said that that doesn't mean they will actually have to stay the the entire two months in jail all of it depends on the piece of the investigation last week they in the protest against oil drilling or any sort of drilling in the arctic they have a scaled and all regular russian oil rig in the northern sea russian authorities are saying that they have done so ignoring numerous out warnings from. various several officials particularly not to enter the northern sea route and not to scale that was right but the activists from. the from greenpeace have done so anyways and the had to be up or headed with the russian border patrol who actually have extracted them first from the oil rig and then have a vicks of them from their vessel their action took place on the eve of the arctic
conference which was dedicated to the problem of but initial development in the arctic as well as a way to keep the environment safe. it was russian president bush in court has said that it is clear that greenpeace activists have indeed broken international law but they are facing charges of piracy and russian president said that it is impossible to call them pirates still a lot of people are seeing that as a good sign that perhaps their sentences will not be as harsh as they could be. is said so the sentence for piracy in russia does. rather have to be a jail sentence. a massive anti fascist rallies to violent in athens after a furious protesters tried to storm the headquarters of the far right golden dawn party sparked by the murder of a left wing rapper last week by a sympathizer of the neo nazi party what reports say there have been at least three hundred in fact similar fascist attacks since twenty eleven but numbers rising to

blood on their hands this is why we say go with this government with the golden dome the group is trying to keep a low profile in the wake of the killing and wouldn't speak to us on camera this man however was keen to talk george says he's one of the group's oldest members and he blames journalists for giving golden dawn a bad rep is the only party that has spent poor people and desperate greeks who are suffering the crisis we're not extremists and we aren't against anyone yet georges also wanted to make sure i noticed people in the neighborhood he claimed this man was an egyptian immigrant who lived on handouts at the expense of greeks like himself as for the nazi symbolism the fascist salutes that the group has been known for all a misunderstanding he says it's once wrong with this there's nothing wrong with a salute is just a way of saying hello so i did myself it's a greeting that still terrifies this greek resident he believes that golden dawn was to blame for his recent assault but he also points to another factor behind the
growing divisions and the violence is going to be a crisis i didn't used to be afraid but agrees has changed everyone is suffering financially and some are looking to blame others immigrants and. target despite the public shows of anger against it golden dawn is greece's third largest party and at least until now its fastest growing political force it gained ground against a backdrop of unrest linked to the economic crisis and a country burdened by debt soaring unemployment and deep cuts to social spending oh it's the. when your life changes totally like ours has in the past few years and when you lose your job and can't provide for your family you grab whatever helping hand you can get and golden dawn has helped as we'll fight to the end. spiros a shop owner who's had to shut down one of his stores because of the recession blames the influx of immigrants for straining scarce resources and he says golden
dawn keeps order in his neighborhood when the government fails. we don't want to use violence but when golden dawn kicks out immigrants who are squatting illegally . and forces peace in order of course to support them as a government does nothing. the financial crisis has done more than simply cripple greece's economy it's changing society too when asked to describe how local say the writing is on the wall in this neighborhood it literally is in the red it says out what foreigners signed golden dawn in the black out of fashion. it's evidence of a growing ideological divide and with the greek economy still in trouble that divide is unlikely to heal anytime soon lucie county of r t athens. former m.p. va carly believes her fellow greeks a big push towards supporting the golden dawn by the nation's drastic economic situation. we should continue the ideology of ideology but the
problem is the actions citizens don't have and voted for golden dawn because they are violent they are just hopeless and wanted some people out of the system to to make the political system realize that the corruption must go and people have need they need to find this thirty measures were very strict and the pressure was. bearable for greek citizens but we worked really hard over the something that we have to deal with young people living in greece to find jobs and the we have to help the south to hold on to its big and try to find a different long at the end that we bring europe together and not divide societies and counties. and you keep cross what's happening in greece by getting the latest news analysis that are to talk of course. barely over but southern russia really excited about the winter we talk about that's sort of the snow for the olympics

it was september of two seven and there was nothing here absolutely nothing except promises and this these promises kept you tried very very hard you succeeded. almost to the point where we said was this is fantasy. so still a few months to go until the olympic flame is lit in sochi but even september the peaks around the black sea result are already a winter wonderland i must say took a cable car to see what awaits the athletes in february. it's less than six months to go before kickoff starts are for the twenty second winter olympics as well as the paralympics that will be hosted by a source here in russia of course we're giving you a taste of what are those winter games will look like and even feel like it's a little bit chilly here in sochi today but no worries we've got something to warm you up with as we show you a little bit of what these olympic venues are going to hold for you once you here i
was standing right now at one of the i was supposed to be the longest bops late in the world we're talking about three slopes that are put together in order to give you the fossils and the longest railing for those slayers' it's also called funky which also means sledge in russian some of the venues are completed and the rest are way to the finishing touches the state of the other components can be seen in both the architecture and the technology used to make these games the best yet and it's easy to see how this russian resort city can be turned into the outline of the far east of course the cable cars are also working making sure they transferred from the bottom of the mountain cluster to the top of the hills where all the sporting events are all of them including things like snowboarding it could be things like skiing will be going up here now my years like getting a little bit plastered because we're getting as high as possible it's supposed to
be almost a lot minus two degrees today even though it's still the end of september who'd have thought that once we get to one of the mountain clusters here at sochi this is what we would find a winter wonderland obviously mother nature telling us that the clock is ticking and she's ready for all those are spectators as well as those sports men and women both paralympics as well as the olympics ready here to take part in those games. misrule pretty produce being bumped off to be. because of security threats at the original venue in indonesia but as we were pulling online tonight it might not help much because radical islamist there are targeting the bikini clad parade all set to turn the event into a nightmare for the rich and beautiful one we don't more about that's on line it may be tough for supermodels and even easy to put one of the counterparts here in russia has been a very different kind of fashion shoot feeling bored she said she robbed a bank at gun point find out the video of that on
ukraine is eyeing a joint deal with american energy giants and attempts to obtain cheaper gas and ease its dependence on russia but the supposed benefits from proposal leaving some in doubt there's next year if the reports. so then no celestial see ok that's some way to introduce oneself not only did the new u.s. ambassador to ukraine congratulate ukrainians on their independence day in their language but he also made his embassy employees sing a traditional song. to bring more sweet music to ukrainian ears mr piatt said the country's european integration will be his priority as will ensuring an easy passage for american oil and gas giants into its markets exxon mobil and chevron the two companies interested in cooperation with ukraine they will bring american technologies know how and money into ukraine it will be good for the country and will help it become
energy independent. mr piet certainly knew what strings to pool as the energy issue has been one of the most intensely debated in ukraine which has long been unhappy with the prices of the gas advice from russia ukraine has been fighting for its energy independence since the nine hundred ninety s. and when the first stock of the country using its shale gas reserves came up many breathed a sigh of relief but as the time passes by this optimism seems to be waning while ukraine's energy minister was visibly happy with the shale gas initiatives once it's operational we will strive to fully meet our domestic energy needs and to even become an exporter some raised a sensible question would the country actually win by letting foreign companies handle their resources enormously administration of ukraine's western ivanna from course krege and said no to chevron's shale gas operations on their soil leaving the company would simply rob them. under current conditions our region will not
receive anything from these gas extraction this display of unease matters little though as energy experts expect gas corporations to lobby a law to let parliament issue such permissions instead of regional authorities and while ukraine's west is being defiant the east of the country has already given up recently key a finalist a ten billion dollar deal with shell for the exploration and extraction of shale gas a former press officer for ukraine state gas company enough the gas says the issue has been turned into a major political power play here but it's still unclear how much gas is there and whether it'll be possible to extract it yet everyone makes such a big deal of it it's like cooking a hand which hasn't been caught not even knowing if that had actually exists even the most optimistic forecast suggest that ukraine would not start extracting its shale gas until the year twenty twenty that's if there is any gas at all but until then a question remains pretty much open with this lead to the country's much desired
energy independence or simply do a change in who they're dependent on. reporting from kiev ukraine present in a code which is actively lobbying for a free trade zone between ukraine and the e.u. claiming it would boost europe's markets by seven percent but front foot base to political research will be mendell believes ukraine will lose more than it will gain from the issue the european union itself is in the throes of a deep deep deep recession it's by no means out of the woods on that front countries like spain portugal. italy. greece of course and other countries are in a deep recession the e.u. has very little to offer ukraine except more unemployment it's kind of a if you will a shock therapy mach two that would come with the member with the trade agreement conditions as they stand now and i think this is an extremely.
foolish thing for ukraine to be doing right now i think they should perhaps of moscow's made some blunders in playing too much hardball with ukraine that that i can't judge but ukraine's future is not with the european union the they have illusions if they think i.m.f. loans are going to bail them out of any economic troubles and the western investors are going to come in there and just cherry pick what they want and leave ukraine the poorer for it with higher unemployment a couple more world news headlines not a series of bombs ripped through busy markets in baghdad leaving at least twenty three dead dozens more injured the deadliest attack was in the capital's northern outskirts with three explosions took the lives of more than fifteen people have mainly sunni districts surged across iraq in the past few months reaching its highest level since two thousand and eight. protests in sudan invented their fourth day as thousands turned out in the capital khartoum to demonstrate over a cut in fuel subsidies protesters burned tires and hurled stones at passing cars

february now of course the torch will be alight when it's taken on a space walk for the very same torch will then be used during the opening ceremony of those winter games in sochi on february the seventh but we are seconds away i think sedation thirty seven is about to head towards the international space station and. the problem of the insurgency the even the one. that's really remarkable is the on the rise i mean with the time in history but
a month away from it going to take what is mine is the director of the quecreek julie we're going international calls by station which is entering its fifteenth year now and with the successful launch of expedition thirty seven it seems that the good work of the r.s.s. is set to continue for some time yet. we wish that well here on earth in moscow bringing more news in about thirty minutes time. station discovered what happens if you refused an overdraft and tried to storm me a bank with a flame thrower next because a report after the break. the

a barclays bank branch with a makeshift flame thrower and threaten to burn the bank down to the ground after they have refused him an overdraft i don't see the problem with this after all it worked for wall street didn't it the so-called credit crunch was effectively wall street being denied an overdraft and what did they do in response they sent former goldman sachs c.e.o. hank paulson to congress with a flame thrower and threatening to burn the place down in the us they extended wall street trillions in new untraceable credit and last week ben bernanke you promised to extend their over jeff by eighty five billion per month so what's wrong with a little bit of trickle down flame throwing stacy max i don't see the problem here why was this tape don't tase me bro yeah why was he jay z. just doing what the other guys are doing the problem is on wall street they have
a saying go big or stay home you should have gone into the bank with a flame thrower asking for an overdraft extension you should have gone into the bank asking to have the bank given to him as a present for being such a nice guy and having a grenade a plan throw in a few other little niceties as a bag of tricks yeah well it's more very similar to the situation with hank paulson going to congress because remember at first when he went in with a flame thrower was rejected and then what happened they threatened to burn the they they threatened to commit suicide with the whole banking system and this guy also did that he threatened to after the flame thrower didn't work he threatened to ignite himself so the article is man who had been refused over draft extension is tasered by armed police after. bursting into bank with a homemade flame thrower now the interesting thing is it's of course the u.k. where they're a little bit more stiff upper lip about things jackie clover who runs the clover tearooms opposite the bank said quote we heard that he got upset as he had been turned down for an overdraft extension.
