life from moscow this is all sea international with me. and welcome to the program the ukrainian president has called the had of the european commission and agreed to discuss some aspects of the e.u. association agreement key of earlier shroud the deal triggering a wave of mass protests the rallies turned violent during the weekend government buildings was stormed and hundreds of people were injured including police first hesse's and journalists are going to be events in kiev for us. we cannot talk about the number of people subsiding as a matter of fact there have been more and more people coming in and sound the locals are saying that there are buses entire buses of people coming in from various regions of ukraine to join the protesters and in the key has essentially independence square these are the largest protests ukraine has seen in almost
a decade since the orange revolution unfortunately they are also they also seem to be the most violent protests and just as many years my colleague alex here said skene was in kiev over the past few days and he's been covering the events several hundred people have gathered in front of the government building there now blocking it obviously the book in the road as well so that no government official can get inside this is their way of telling that this government needs to go the night has been more or less peaceful there have been no clashes reported even though there were some warnings coming from the police at some point that they will try to get back the city administration building which the protesters took over last night during the protests the tension is pretty much tangible and at the same protest is happening in front of the presidential ministration building i went there last night and i saw that the cord on between the protesters and the police there still remaining there's a very thin line separating those protesting and those defending the presidential administration the administration of the president building became the scene of
a battlefield yesterday when several hundred supporters clashed with the police in a very for ukraine with the rocks flying towards the police tear gas use flash bangs it was pretty much hell breaking loose we are certainly watching the situation how it unravels here and give but for now these people are here they're not letting one inside the ride police are inside they've blocked the entrance with these buses as you can see and the standoff continues in the korean capital we're talking about who threw the first show and the violence has taken place in kiev over the last couple of days it's really hard to pinpoint the origin of course if you. ask the supporters of the western integration and they largely seem to come from the western regions of ukraine and they're saying that it's it's their opponents whereas those who are supportive of a closer cooperation with russia saying all the provocations came from those who are looking for integration with europe and yet there is
a third party of people who are saying that all of this is in fact done by forces from the outside of ukraine in fact when you look also at the reaction of some of the western politicians to the events in ukraine you will see that some of them particularly those of polish origin people are very supportive. you are a part of europe and we will support you forever if you. you know. i came here to support your dream you're striving towards the european union to support your march most knowledge but i know that there are forces in ukraine who think different. and of course how the events in kiev will turn out only time will tell but at this point we are like more and more people. coming out to support the protesters and you have central independence square. school ski direct so the europeans and political analysis is what they it's
acceptable for polish politicians the chairperson has this in ukraine. as far as i know and no one knew that the president or the prime minister has entitle them to speak and voice the polish. polish of opinion about the events in kiev. i don't know if mr prata shave each had the right to speak on behalf of european parliament i think they're trying to get some more political out the answer rather here in poland for the polish public opinion done to earn some points on the international arena so i wouldn't really seriously worry about they are speeches but of course their speeches are let's say at least intolerable if we look at the point of view of the diplomatic relations between the two countries if we look at it from the point of view that means that i share with you the deputy speaker of european parliament and he hasn't had the right to voice the
opinion of the whole european parliament i guess. this in and through to truncate of rises appear to be acting in organized groups with step a school ski believes that's evidence of outside influence tearing up violence in order to put more pressure on the government. first and foremost we see professionalism of those who have organized the protests before that brought us we have heard about the activities of as several and buses and n.g.o.s financed and supported by different countries by foreign countries so we see that this is the kind of president exerted by external forces for the ukrainian government for ukrainian i'll florrie peace to think once again that about. which ties these geopolitical choice which geo economical choice would be right and better for ukraine. ukraine said it needed time to sort out its ever growing foreign debt and
walk out how to fund and modernization program that key have said this would have helped save jobs before it ended into any deal with the ye but of foreign policy our list of ironic aggression in a coma things the e.u. won't let you cry and profit from europe's economy. as european union officials and heads of hue rypien states try to explain the then teach yourself european membership to ukrainian police. they couldn't even a few ukrainian products would be able to penetrate the european market and there is only one explanation for that that there would be none indeed the european market is very protected market and it is actually the ukrainian market that europe needs particularly in this time of in economic crisis
so it is ukraine is viewed as the extension of the european market. and let's now take a look at how the ukrainian and rest has unfolded in the past couple of weeks so process in kiev began on november the twenty faster soon after the government said it was suspending a major trade deal with the new rallies on the campuses independence square last of another week with several thousand demonstrators and police occasionally engaging in scuffles on friday night however security forces ran out of patience and raided the camp using sheer force to disperse the crowd authorities were quick to ban any process in central kiev but this has only served to encourage activists the opposition took a day to regroup and let the square only to return in their hundreds of thousands to retake the heart of the capital and call for a revolution now that protesters control the mayor's office have tried to storm the

the thirty wells that serve at this village ten have already gone dry and two more are on the verge. in some know the consequences are already visible those who can afford it buy their water from these trucks the rest struggle to get by however they can there are public taps but. the water is often dirty and shortages are common the city's groundwater could be depleted in less than a decade but for the poorest residents it's as good as gone should be talking about some other out of what i'm telling this is actually is an afterthought it's a matter of definitions now. and that's not just some countries who have the most serious what's the problem in the world. it's a race against time and one that yemen is losing but here the evenings belong to cart men gathered together to talk smoke and true those are chosen the sweeps for

crosstalk coming up next hour after the recent iran nuclear deal the saudi monarchy has expressed doubts on the loyalty i was old allies peace eleven his guess to basically shifting. the saudis are furious over western dealings with iran disappointed that obama didn't bomb syria and determined to export its radical form of islam can the house of saud afford what it calls an independent foreign policy so are you arabia for years isolation they really cannot carry out independent foreign policy because of their regimes limited strength and durability every government the middle east except turkey in israel because their democracies every single other government is fragile you look at a fairly stable country like jordan it is fragile as well i hope for side arabia should become a constitutional monarchy more like jordan but saudi arabia has lots of work to do .
now and israelis are streaming out of their home country to start a life in greener economic pastures and as paulus here reports now this is a righteous thing out of the tension between those who stay and those who go. their ancestors may have called it the promised land but more and more young israelis are seeking their fortunes far from its golden shaws a former israeli prime minister yitzhak rabin once branded those who immigrated from israel cowards but these days most of the people who are leaving are young educated smart and successful many don't come back there's a word in hebrew for those israelis who leave your dream which means descending until recently it was attributed to misfits lower class and people who couldn't find their place in society but alone a is a straight a pupil she want to scholarship to study at the american university in washington d.c. the fact that that's the only jewish country plays a certain role but it's not something that should limit ourselves. but the debate
was reignited after two of this year's nobel prize winners in chemistry were israelis who left for the states an embarrassing reminder of the extent to which local talent has fled very bible has a computer technician who sitting up his own business in the german capital in israel for me at least life was like every day going to war your always fight with your customers you fight with your client i had my own business there and it was always a struggle and your life is more calm you can relax you can sit quiet you can sleep. like very many israelis land up here which is why the country's finance minister recently funded from his facebook page that he's a little impatient with people who are willing to throw the only country the jews have into the trash because berlin is more convenient actually pissed me off to read this comment on why if i stay there it's because it's good for me financially
it's good for me socially but bottom line it's still economics for many the most common complaint among those israelis living abroad is that back home salaries are low and prices high and it's almost impossible to make ends meet. it's sick lift as well two years ago with his ecuadorian wife after giving israel a try they decided to leave for her country if israel was in such a. good. i wouldn't have left. tens of thousands of israelis live today abroad to israel's founding fathers it's a sad limited goodbye to the beloved country policy r t tell of lies this hour first houses have been involved in violent clashes with police around key government buildings in the thai capital running battles erupted as demonstrators continued to demand the prime minister's resignation the shinawatra
is refusing to step down saying it would be unconstitutional over the weekend large crowds has brought part of bangkok tusker house to. thousands of opposition activists have marched in honduras to reject the official results of this week's national election they say the boy who was raped and that kind of. is the rightful winner she led the procession following the coffin of a party supporter who was killed by security forces hours before the demonstrations began. and on our international next a look at the lives of military families who have lost their loved ones and if you're watching in the u.k. stay with us for college and a who're. ukraine
is in a tough spot right now trying to figure out whether to join the e.u. or the arrangements custom union it would be nice if they would you know maybe allow the populace to vote for their future via referendum but sadly it looks like the politicians will be making a historic decision i can see why some people want to look west and some people want to look east but i don't understand why so-called ukrainian nationalists want so desperately to join the e.u. first off any nationalist groups in the e.u. are automatically demonised as right wing extremists and in the politically correct west patriotism is pretty much a dirty word generally nationalist like their culture and the people who are part of it but if you look at migration trends within the e.u. we see that the slavic part of it is flooding western europe looking for work i have many relatives from the slavic part of the e.u. and almost all of them have to work abroad and might sound nice to be able to work in europe but the reality is that ukrainians will probably be paid even less than bulgarians rumanians to clean toilets in london ukrainian nationalists don't have to like russia or join the customs union or join any bloc of countries but advocating a future for themselves the e.u.
seems absolutely backwards at least to me but that's just my opinion. what is the fate of the house of saud its list of complaints against washington is long and getting longer the saudis are furious over western dealings with iran disappointed that obama didn't bomb syria in one of its only real friends in the region is israel given all of this can the house of saud afford what it calls an independent foreign policy. talking about language but i will only react to situations i have read the reports but. it was a no i will leave that to the state department to comment on your let him play. it's. no more. question prepared for a chase when you throw a punch be ready for
a bad. freedom of speech and down the street into class. army grieve the loss of every soldier. his mother father brothers and wife will forever grieve as was. grief that was compound about the failing of his army. we have a duty to all families of our fallen soldiers given the truth the best we know what it's best if we can't.
