if you. could take three. three. three. three. old freeboard video for your media projects free media r.t. dot com. more of our top stories the last week no one has claimed britain squeezing out most of the population of one of its smallest remotest outposts asuncion island in the south atlantic that's what we were reporting on soprani to make way for a u.s. military base let's see where it is there it is that's what we're talking about the tiny spot of a well over
a thousand kilometers from anywhere in fact but it is home to just about a thousand people whose communities thrived for more than a century now they say they're being forcibly color stoat or smith reports next on how it's a trick the u.k.'s pull before. the tiny island in the mid atlantic made of volcanic rock and covered in pigeon guano but to eight hundred people it's hope but now the story of attention island has all the hallmarks the big another diego garcia the british owned indian ocean islands whose inhabitants were forced to leave to make way for a u.s. based despite having lived that the generation a lot of good memories. it's not for them. you know when you see them you got this because they are enjoying the. islanders accuse the british government of.

and abandon it to the americans far from the dreams of a permanent home they had a decade ago. be reduced to paul in the special relationship. but david lindsay's family comes from the island he says it's outrageous that british citizens depend on the u.s. military ambitions most people are essentially out of the state of indian origin and my family certainly is that i was born there there is a very very strong sense that essential knowledge is being but one might almost say starve to death and if there is a precarious character of political representation there is the absence of guaranteed property rights or indeed a very much probably rights and it is a serious question to be asked about why on british territory british citizens living there these are all british passport holders of why these peoples are being treated like this for the sake of a station a base which is almost certain you might know more of the details of this involved

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 strengths 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

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. and let's see reporting from kiev in ukraine i'm kevin i would hear moscow this morning with the news continues just over four minutes from now. thank.
