hello and welcome to our international twenty four hour news live from moscow. thanks for joining us i'm dave day three of the winter olympics in sochi and another medal for the harvests on originally a south korean has taken braun's for the russian official track team let's go live to seoul she and paul scorsese standing by for us right now that how the whole tell us more about this latest brawls for russia. while the are russian fans in and around the fun park here around me have a medal to cheer on day three of the sochi twenty fourteen winter olympics victor has secured russia their first ever medal in short track speed skating bronze in the men's fifteen hundred meters event but you may be thinking. the victor around
isn't a particularly russian sounding name while he used to compete for his native south korea for the republic of korea but he fell out with his sports governing body and gained russian citizenship in two thousand and eleven he was unfortunately on able to add to the gold medal the russia won on sunday evening in the figure skating team of and they were helped along the way by the emergence of a new star in fifteen year old. who put in two performances as did the veteran. who was actually foolish in his display upon his return from injury now let's take a look at how all of that affects the very latest medals table you can see the. top the medals table norway down into second place and they're being closely followed by the netherlands all those nations have to go. elsewhere on monday russia's female. campaign with a seven four victory against denmark in the ice cube. who
some are saying could become the poster girl for the sochi twenty fourteen winter olympics she turned to the sport after a career but she says she has absolutely no regrets about. when i was very young i had a choice i was not sure if i wanted to be an athlete or a model i got into a modeling academy for teenagers but after a few classes i realized i liked sport better since then i have never thought about modeling i wanted to exercise practice and when i enjoy negative lifestyle i enjoy travelling to competitions actually come to think of it the modeling business has a lot of competition as well but back then i just made a choice based on how i felt in my heart. well curling is one of the more unusual winter sports and it's a relatively new here in russia these are the first winter games that russia have and to the men's team into the competition for example incidentally. they lost
their writing much seventy four to great britain monday but it seems that coming is a craze that is starting to sweep the nation here you can see how much a footage or a number of russians throughout the country turning them into the school day improvising using whatever equipment they can from. the cowbells to try and replicate the equipment used by the early stages here in russia but it does look as if it could be a sport that is here to stay our the one sport the does have a rich heritage in russia is that. the men's competition doesn't start for a few days a number of the world's leading stars have touched down in sochi with the n.h.l. hockey contingent arriving earlier on monday it's one of the most. eagerly anticipated events i should say and russia do have high hopes for a gold medal here. they were course helps lights the olympic cauldron in the opening ceremony on friday says that this is one of the most open competitions in years. because. there are many strong
teams at these games canada the u.s. finland sweden in fact all of them a very strong it's hard to predict who's going to win the hockey stephanie going to be very interesting i think we're about to witness one of the best told immense in recent years. while the anticipation ahead about men's tournament is growing the opening match may be three days away that's what russia take on slovenia. polis called a live from such a poll thank you very much indeed for your inspirational report now with the many inspirational stories in sochi to be joe my ken buck slate team again find itself at the center one of them they were full stall raise funds via twitter to be able to compete at the games and then lost their luggage upon arrival he calls how whether one of their fearless trio on the team coach. i love the people there are
real love. makes us feel like we're stars but you know stars is something that shines really bright which is a jamaica team in all of the you know across all of those and i hope so but see what we're doing throughout the world and how the world loves us i know a lot of younger kids in jamaica want to do to be a part of jamaica bobsled team are going to say thanks to the world support we've had and another thing i'd like to see is thanks to mr putin for putting this on and the russian people for volunteering to doing this this is one of the best games that i've seen and it's a great great opportunity for the jamaican team to be here and represent jamaica who are here coming out of the underdog so just watch us. meanwhile in washington lawmakers security warnings about the winter games one republican congressional went as far as to claim he's never seen any greater threat in his lifetime i was honestly it's insulting who don't appear to share his concerns so five rethinks
been amazing it's running like clockwork and everything's just going really really well there hasn't been any problems as of as of today my parents have been a little bit worried they just might just just be careful what you do and really wear the uniform when you have to you know when you don't need it just be a bit half of the security is like really so it's better than we thought it would be at a really great time here and i have nothing bad to say so far well organized and people are really friendly here and having a good time. russia's gold winning performance in the figure skating cools the adoring home crowd to blow the roof of the iceberg arena but there have been some rumors circulating in the media claiming the competition could have been rigged with coach not with a two thousand and two olympic ice dancing champion french president to get his thoughts. in figure skating there always be a lot of talking you know people are talking and they believe they can. master
marriage where it is happening on the ice. is how the figure skaters are performing on the ice you can make somebody who falls to win you can change the course everybody has to skate their best to do something those talking those trying to change the course of the competition is just very bad for a sport and i'm sorry that is it's happening again and people are talking about this again because things have been made to change that sort of things so their sports would be more fair and skaters would just perform. and therefore the best is the one we should win. and if you want to share any of your limbic experiences with the world don't hesitate to submit videos to all these official facebook page and of course of got all the objects on the results there as well for you you can go that to share your comments and he's on the sporting spectacle and
you can also post any questions you'd like to hear are supposed to the athletes were interviewed there and we've got our sports special coming up at five thirty pm genesee with kate partridge don't go away and don't miss that with all doubt dates from the olympic from the olympic games in sochi. the g. twenty fourteen plus is the ultimate in exhilarating winter forcing our team here to join me and you see now a make over now and the rest of our look used to sochi twenty four take. on art. so it isn't my have jeopardized it's access to the e.u. market for the sake of being the number of immigrants coming into the country the new law which will install quotas for foreign workers goes against long held agreements with brussels. enough now reports. what's real and voted to shut the
door to european union workers setting up a showdown with brussels as well as a potential exit from the single european market now the so-called stop mass immigration initiative was the brainchild of the right wing swiss peoples party which wants strict quotas on foreigners for switzerland to essentially abandon its free movement of people treaty with the e.u. and supporters the we've talked to say that they're worried immigration is driving up rents that it's undercutting local workers and that is burdening public services no opponents had argued that immigration caps would in fact cripple economic growth and experts do say that this wasn't kazumi is. not despite foreign labor especially when it comes to folks who have skills to work in fields like health care an i.t. where there's a big need for skilled workers but despite the very real economic concerns despite the fact that unemployment here is just three percent many voters were ultimately swayed by the argument that switzerland simply cannot take in any more people now
in order to understand why you really do have to look at the numbers about a quarter of the country's eight million residents aren't swizz there's been a huge uptick in immigration in fact about eighty thousand new immigrants came just what's real and last year alone the vote will likely mean severe repercussions with brussels you have to remember that switzerland isn't a member of the e.u. but it has signed on to a lot of the blocks policies in order to gain access to the european markets course what's real and sells more than half of everything that it produces and with five hundred million customers there's a lot of money at stake here a historic vote that is likely to have a significant impact on the swiss economy as well as on relations with the countries european neighbors reporting in burn for r t m d c catherine. switzerland does not and if attempts to do would be growing discontent of the euro skeptics the british immigration minister has resigned revelation that he's clean there didn't have permission to work in the u k. the scandal only deepens the nationwide debate
on the floor and why it's just three weeks after grayson lifted restrictions on guerin's and romanians and lynn for a film and the piece says in the wider context the outcome of this waste referendum was predictable. the swiss are perfectly entitled to to pass this legislation. there's absolutely no problem with that as far as they were for new needs concerned but of course there's no such thing as a free lunch why have they done it and i think it's partly if you want a reaction to it if you want the media and the fact it was whipped up in switzerland by a party on the extreme right we're seeing that across the european union it's like in the european elections in france and in holland in in the united kingdom least that the far right parties will be either first or second in the european elections so this is a phase we're going through this is a consequence of the financial crisis and coming up later in the program crime and
punishment in comfort. and here. is my clothes like the free general thing believe it or not this is actually a prison full report from inside an experimental facility in norway where convicts feel very much at home. there's a story here when you're in the arctic you have the entire world at your feet she looks like a fairly simple shit but really she's not simple little. handful of people ever have access to the nuclear icebreakers the real king here is the polar bear and ice breakers come second not a single complex expedition to the arctic can be conducted without the russian nuclear powered fleet of ice breakers we under a tree
a unique operation in. the northern sea route russia's arctic ice breakers. this is also international welcome bok nearly a year after a pipeline rupture caused a massive oil spill in the u.s. state of arkansas locals are still suffering dizziness headaches and nausea the cleanup began almost immediately but that didn't stop people moving out to safer
areas he's going at each account visited the site for us. almost a year after two hundred thousand gallons of heavy crude spilled onto their streets residents of mayflower in arkansas are striving to leave the town here in mayflower for sale signs are everywhere almost every house on the street is on sale before the spill this was a place where people wanted to move in to enjoy the beautiful nature around many didn't even know there was a pipeline running on their houses and now they just want out many have already left and jerrel one of them i tried to stay here i tried to just be away you know as much as i could but if it rained i could not stay here because it would all seep through the. all again you know the where the ground was dry it would kind of i guess in case it and then when it rained all those vapors would come back she says like many other residents of mayflower she started having constant headaches and
coughing after the spill i have friends that live just behind me that are still here that don't have a place to go they have just small children you don't have to look at the kids in in twenty years when they get to find out something's wrong and they say well why didn't we leave mom when everybody healthfully well some people just aren't able to pick up and leave like that exxon wrote back to us saying that a unified command comprised of exxon representatives as well as officials from the state and federal environmental services has deemed all areas affected by the mayflower spill now safe to live in but many of the residents don't buy it and their homes are not selling i would say that the number of homes sold in mayflower has dropped by least fifty sixty percent but arkansas oil spill is only a fraction of a new oil pipeline leaks it's estimated that between two thousand and eight and two thousand and twelve u.s. pipelines spill an average of more than three point one million gallons of
hazardous liquids per year plans for the keystone x.l. pipeline a massive project that would. from canada soil since two refineries in texas have caused many to worry that they may become collateral damage in the way of big oil like the residents of mayflower arkansas there's a lot of us that have been forgotten were just collateral damage in mayflower i'm going to check on our teeth with the deadline for the pullout of american troops from afghanistan fast approaching washington pays its retreat with money things out three hundred million dollars into gold they're calling the end of what we call me had to call somebody. and also online we get peace here comes under the scrutiny of police in finland they say the online encyclopedia could be illegally collecting money from its donors well the story is just a click away. right to see.
her street. and i would think that your. on our reporters were very. inspiring. to be in the. mom. with now a death penalty on democracy in prison sentence of twenty one years norway's penitentiary system is among the most humane in the wild and now the country's growing a step that with an experimental jail giving convicts access to pretty much everything except freedom is going off now reports and very. smart. like with the freedom of things. has been living here for nearly four years getting an education working as a car mechanic and serving his fifteen and
a half year long sentence in jail we caught up in the morning talk show thank you breakfast go to joe old school finish to school you have dinner relaxed with the ball like normal life just we are back ward this is holden one of the most humane prisons in the world bills in two thousand and ten it's an example of norway's new experimental approach to penitentiary facilities. i hear the roughly two hundred fifty prisoners it houses cook for themselves and for staff members with beef sound and beer steaks among the items on the menu take walks in the park pray and make art do outdoor and indoor sports like and how like you see here the betterment we can make a place for for maybe one or both of this is going to be a good place to call just to relax. get out from their cells you know hold on has
a library and a school for those who want to either to continue the education they were getting before going to jail or getting a new one altogether yeah i have some of them to russian. literature history math chemistry physics you name it all are taught to the inmates . in the room and that's going to thank you for the next ten years to continue to see you. inmates also have access to the photo shop a grocery store workshop and a mechanic's shop and even. my personal favorite sound studio love didn't have a system in this life there was loose through the screw. working life and everything the improv nothing. on they. learned so
far the prison hasn't seen one riot or an attempt to break out and when we were inside i couldn't really see why anyone would ever want to. stunt it's going to take time for me to process what we've seen here today but what's clear is that even though this is one of the most humane prisons in the wall it still is a place to punish criminals with strict rules security and limitations and since it's been operating only for a few years right now it's too early to see how effective this new penitentiary format is you've got a school of forty reporting from norway soon denmark has found itself at the center of an international aprile a truck a perfectly healthy giraffe was killed skinned and dismembered in front of children the gruesome story went viral forcing copenhagen zoo is authorities to defending their highly controversial anatomy lesson and to discuss this further when i joined live by the spokesperson for animal defenders international and of course you may
find some of the footage you were about to show you during the interview quite disturbing and when i joined live by a flurry. fleurs i get very much for being with us this hour at our c international so carrying scanning of the like here of that poor animal took place in front of a crowd of children. so does that mean that the authorities of that zoo thing that there is nothing there's no difference to. science glance or what you think. well animals for instance national would argue that it's wrong to cut up an animal in front of any child or an animal. we should be to teaching children respects fundamentals and fostering in the nature of compassion in the. meanwhile zoo officials say the animal was killed to prevent inbreeding do you believe that's
a valid reason. copenhagen knew that it was breeding into our genetic profile that didn't want they didn't want to reach from this animal they knew that when they bred him. they've had the benefit of having a baby animal who has been bringing in visitors for them and now they've used his death as in a car published stunt and it's completely unacceptable. it's not fair to say that this happens all the time in zoos around the world this is only a story because it's gone viral. yes you're absolutely right sadly this is a common practice most people don't know about it only this weekend it was reveals that you case fahri park killed a lioness and all of her cubs i think people will be absolutely shocked that the industry body physique actually supported wholeheartedly the killing of marius is something that happens around the world in every city. would
it not be cruel to release a potentially dangerous animal into an enclosed zoon varmint. with regards to having having is i mean these animals then they're not dangerous animals animals belong in the wild they don't belong in captivity we counter problems whenever you have an animal. in a captive environment and whenever that or any other any other industry is is forcing forcing people forcing animals to perform to entertain for money to animals always end up suffering for the coming months ahead despite a massive online campaign all activists completely helpless when it comes to situations like. no absolutely not we
with we would say that if if you've been outraged by this story as rightly people should be please find out with your local zoo what they do when when they have so-called surplus animals. i think people should be considering going and visiting animals in the wild instead of seeing them in captivity where they don't belong and more money should be spent on conserving animals in the wild instead of this. live from london thank you very much indeed for your time we appreciate it. thank you. and now let's take a look at some other international news and breathed a suicide bomber slammed a car packed with explosives into a nato convoy killing two civilian contractors in the are going capital kabul at least seven others were wounded in that time which was claimed by an islamic militant group which runs all foreign forces driven out of the country the taliban is stepping up its campaign as an to terrell. wound down and a u.s.

the head of the sober russia program wants to bring back russia's sobering stations which are like a hybrid hospital and police station and american we call these a good old fashioned drunk tank and in russia their history dates back to the early years of the twentieth century to twenty eleven when they were all closed putting the burden of alcohol abusers health on local hospitals despite the amount of alcohol consumed per person in russia steadily declining over the last few years alcoholism remains a big problem but will privatized drug tanks work no no they won't let's think about it what is business motivated by money big government contracts in countries around the world are often abused and if you get paid per alcoholic served then
pretty soon companies are going to incentivize the police to round up as many people with a hint of booze in their blood as they can or look at it this way what is more profitable helping cure an alcoholic or treating him with fat government contract money every week for the rest of his life there are some things the private sector is not suited for and this is one of them but that's just my opinion. in twenty four almost any exhilarating winter sports enough. to use now a make of it and the rest of. the sochi twenty four take. on. well but i will only react to situations i have read the reports. pollution and no i
