1:00 am
they were not all rich but somebody. leaks conversation between european diplomats suggest that deadly shootings during a recent riots in kiev were carried out by anti-government forces and had nothing to do would be suppressed and. no shots fired by very good for society but i'm sure there was some outside force involved in the probably cations of the deaths on both sides it was an organized team of professionals we hear from a special force commander who witnessed the mayhem in a key of france town but there is division that was announced and unable to defend itself. meanwhile moscow and washington are to continue tense negotiations on ukraine with no compromise and get on the horizon.
1:01 am
and also this hour downing street is accused of a couple rob after their arrest a one of the british prime minister's closest aides on child pornography allegations. hello and welcome to r.t. international twenty four hour news live from moscow i'm. main star now and these are the images that show the world just a few weeks ago when over eighty people were shot dead during riots in kiev ukraine's government then insisted that police had nothing to do with the killings and now those claims have been independently backed up in a league conversation with the e.u.'s foreign policy achieved stoniest top diplomat says it was the same snipers who targeted both activists and police. very tense
1:02 am
shows that people who were killed by snipers from both sides among policemen and people from the streets that they were just changed my purse reeling people from both sides roll up yeah but the same same handwriting same type of pullups and it's really disturbing that now the. new coalition that we don't want to investigate what exactly happened so that carries i was stronger and stronger understanding that behind snipers they were it was not going to call which but it was somebody from the new coalition the u.s. foreign policy chief of has refused to comment here but the authenticity of the conversation has been confirmed by a stony as foreign minister and even though he can be clearly had in the recording saying the snipers who shot dozens of people and appear to have been hired by someone in ukraine's new coalition the top diplomat later insisted that this does
1:03 am
not implicate ukraine's new authorities in the killing nevertheless the relationship could and how the public and the public to understand the true face of those now in power in kiev says international affairs expert. will rake i sincerely hope to build awareness amongst the people as commentators said is a year it was mentioned they you all knew about this they know their side on this information for a few days until it was leaked and what actually has expired and it really does not surprise me one bit one of the most powerful and universal measures of spending ideas and visual propaganda and this is used in politics if you. knew anything so it was to convince not only the public. ok and that is ukraine needs to be saved from
1:04 am
a democratically elected president. and our correspondents have experienced exactly what it feels like to be within range. bullets shot of the windows of a hotel in downtown here at all secret was staying during a reporting assignment while blood was being sold on the streets outside one of the government collapse the backward special forces that have been tasked with ensuring order were disbanded by the new self-proclaimed authorities many of the officers took refuge in crimea and that's where you were going off caught up with one of their commanders. hospital where. you had some point we clearly understood that this was no longer like the peaceful protests of two thousand and four and two thousand and seven this time it was all about provocation not only violent but dirty tactics by the rioters while we were on and we didn't even have non-lethal weapons the plan of those who masterminded this was to make the bird could force
1:05 am
crumble to be moralized and pressure us to switch sides but that didn't happen and then came the worst the shootings rounds are fired at both sides but as i've already told you we didn't have any weapons it was so difficult to understand what was happening but officers just began falling to the ground one by one so would became clear people were dying from bullets but again no shots could have been fired by barrett could foresee i'm sure there was some outside force a third party involved in the provocations and the deaths on both sides it was an organized team of professionals. and precedented a war words has been intensifying by the day with western politicians and the media using strong language when it comes to russia's role in the ukrainian prices and this is after these same politicians gave their backing to violent riots in kiev less than months ago he's going there to check out investigate.
1:06 am
aggression is the word that you often hear in the u.s. media and from u.s. officials with regard to russia's presence in ukraine what they fail to show is the aggression. it's very difficult to talk about aggression when you show thousands of people cheering for russia and in parts of ukraine right maybe that's why you don't see this kind of footage on us t.v. very often but if you do see this coverage in which russia's military presence there in itself is presented as an intervention what the end curs and pundits often fail to mention is that we have an agreement under which russia has a lot to deploy twenty five thousand troops in ukraine it now has presumably sixteen thousand or so so you get a kick picture where the u.s. presents anything that goes against the interests of those who took power in kiev as an aggression and the revolution there as this peaceful takeover of power. the
1:07 am
brave ukrainians took to the streets in order to stand peacefully against tyranny. to demand the barkers. so instead they were met with strikers who picked them off one after the other one wonders if the police with molotov cocktails and shooting at them qualifies as standing peacefully according to secretary kerry a huge part of ukraine had no say in the power grab but my don secretary kerry apparently present it as a triumph of democracy. we've heard no comments from him on the leaks conversation between the e.u. foreign affairs chief catherine ashton in a stony and foreign minister where they talk about evidence that my down leaders knock you know college gave orders to snipers and the media on something like this i mean you would expect breaking news everywhere we're talking about evidence that those who are now celebrating victory in kiev may have well ordered snipers to shoot both peaceful protesters and the police but no. none of that four hours it
1:08 am
went unnoticed because it doesn't fit into the narrative does it but what the u.s. media was quick to pick up on were unverified reports like this one. robert serry has agreed to give up his mission here in ukraine he is of course the un special envoy to ukraine he's from the netherlands a father of three and he was taken against his will a short time ago by militia so after a great deal of hysteria the un confirmed the envoy was not kidnapped but he did come across a group of protesters and the envoy who was apparently escorted by police at the time decided to leave to avoid further tension the general picture that you get is that of the u.s. mainstream media jumping on anything very fighter on verify to present russia as an aggressor without much or any knowledge of what's happening on the ground and u.s. officials wealth they continue their self-righteous tirade while being gauge the
1:09 am
actual acts of aggression around the world with innocent people dying every day in drone strikes or from violence in countries that were destabilized by the u.s. in washington i'm going to check on our team. the u.s. secretary of state who says that america will be fine for its military presence in the baltic region close to russia's western border it forms part of washington's response to the situation in ukraine as john kerry pointed out after meeting with russia's foreign minister. brings us all of that. well first of all the u.s. secretary of state john kerry had to get reiterated that for him to russia had violated the sovereignty of ukraine and that russia had made the wrong choice but russia had maintained from the very start that all its movements in crimea in the region had been within the legalities of the agreement that it had signed and now john kerry also reiterated that the dialogue is paramount you know trying to find
1:10 am
a solution to the ukrainian the crimean crisis however at the same time the u.s. has announced that it will bolster its military presence in the baltic region as part of washington's a response to the ukrainian crisis and that the united states currently a provides for f. fifteen still nato is a baltic air policing rotation but they will be sending six more additional a fifty one k c one three five in order to augment this mission and while on a different note that meeting between the two ministers started off with a rather informal and the somewhat like to exchange when that the two of them were sitting on different sides of the table. who are. now at an apparent jibed to carry. him to death be a far right organization in the ukraine now what's next will be more talks that the two had said that the intense discussions will continue in rome. and
1:11 am
national spokesman former u.s. presidential cons and to ron paul he believes america has no of rice to blame russia. for us to lecture anybody about violating sovereignty what about the sovereignty of iraq and afghanistan and yemen and north africa and we're constantly being involved pakistan the drug missiles we have eight hundred bases around the world where one hundred thirty countries where always involved it seems in somebody else's alexion and we preach democracy we finally got democracy theoretically you know in egypt there was an election and of course we didn't like the person they elected but we said let's go back to the military so i don't i don't like hypocrisy and for us to preach one thing at the same time behind the scenes we're doing things to stir up trouble for many many different reasons stay with us here and all seem to nationalism bring you the latest developments on
1:12 am
ukraine and on the way the fund stand for fusing to meet. even animals have rights how can a family with three children and even a key. one palestinian families. take. and that's after the break. i always just look at athletes as obsolete sophocles says people. true to say that many many paralympians of over maybe viewed his body use whether it's physical or psychological or i don't know what to do with integration into society one thing about paralympians is their fight is it will fight very very hard for what they believe in what their rights for what their freedom should be.
1:13 am
i know c.n.n. the premise n.b.c. fox news have taken some not slightly but the fact is i admire their commitment to cover all sides of the story just in case one of them happens to be accurate. that was funny but it's close and for the truth from them i think. it's because one full attention and the mainstream media work side by side the joke is actually on here. and our teen years we have a different right. ok because the news of the world just is not this funny i'm not laughing dammit i'm not hi. i'm ok. you guys talk to the jokes well handled it makes sense that i'm.
1:14 am
according to. the first issue that this government this interim government preoccupied itself which was the future of the russian language in ukraine and that's at a time when the top of the country is in cannes so that should sort of show you should read that government was prepared to take the issue is you know what appears to be true many people at least in the west let's say a disproportionate use of force and the de facto occupation of crimea.
1:15 am
this is an international welcome bach downing street isn't hold. a geisha is that it attempted to sweep under the rug to be a rest to a close aide of the prime minister over a child pornographer who rode the official part of whose role was to advise an online porn filters was reportedly warned that the police were investigating him hours before he was detained on his lower smith has the details his name is patrick
1:16 am
rock and he is in fact a veteran conservative policy advisor david cameron's deputy chief of staff. he's been called cameron spics and he's had what one might call unparalleled access to access to power over a very long time over the last four decades right there in the heart of government the irony lies in the fact that he's also been closely involved in drawing up government policy on internet pornography filters and this is a man who was arrested arrested recently on suspicion of what everybody is calling an offense related to child abuse images so not just pornography but what appears to be child pornography now his arrest happened on february the twelfth and he then resigned but this was all on the quiet downing street appears to have covered it up until it was confronted with it now over the last three weeks no one said anything about this but apart from the prime minister who apparently has known for three
1:17 am
weeks he said he was very concerned that the matter should be handled correctly that he didn't want to brief preemptively on a criminal investigation against a member of his starts but his critics who are mainly labor members of parliament opposition say that this raises a number of questions for example what level of security did patrick rock have is that other stuff that we don't know about it's also emerged by the way that rock had previously been accused of sexual harassment which was dealt with by his boss at downing street to a political figure rather than a civil servant they could not very usual so again some sort of oddity going on there the prime minister is being accused of a cover up and his labor critics say that this undermines the entire credibility and effectiveness of the government. and the politics dot com you chaotic stevenson says the government has some explaining to do to regain public trust. voters are baffled by what they're hearing at the moment what seems really strange
1:18 am
to them is that three weeks have passed since such a senior advisor close friend of the prime minister david cameron to britain have passed since he since he left the government left number ten and resigned that is a very odd but what's even stranger here is that this man who now faces allegations that he accessed child abuse images. was warned by number ten before his arrest and so clearly there are lots and lots of questions going around huge suspicion and number ten's got a lot of questions to answer. and on our website for you right now keeping all bases covered but you are still maintain its fleet ratios near the korean peninsula but it is the beijing pyongyang that's warring washington find out at l.t. dot com. alland after russian and french scientists have discovered

construction of settlements on occupied palestinian territory evicting locals and demolishing their homes she's middle east correspondent policy i reports now on the plight of one palestinian family who refused to give up their life. judge lee's home has been cast down through the generations but now there's pressure on him to news television complaining he's on the wrong side of the wall israel is building to separate the palestinian autonomy from israel and all the israeli commander if you brought us inside an electronic fence behind the wall and they're down over the gate so whatever you will do we're not leaving our house and our land i first met all mark two years ago then he told me he felt like he was living in a prison but he refused offers to move. two years ago the tractors are busy planning fields around his house but because it was on the israeli side of the border the plan was to surround his home with
1:23 am
a five meter high electric fence and he always wife and three children wanted to leave they would need to go through an underground tunnel monitored by security cameras that would connect them to the other side of the wall and palestine we can you know expecting to find something different i thought we'd see it security cameras state of the art technology but instead what we found is much the same two years have passed and nothing. in the malice or in many of the israelis the occupation country the work slowly the poison are slowly because they do not want to appear for the world as killers and. as you can see when they finish building this tunnel they will close it with a gate the owner of the house will have a key but no one can come and visit them without permission from the army and it should be within specific hours amar is now sick and i'm able to work he doesn't even have the strength to walk through the tunnel with me in the backyard i can't explain to you how i feel even animals have rights how can

1:25 am
a twenty five thousand gallons of fuel ventilation to a bureaucratic black hole and four dollars a gallon that is a lot of cash obviously this is wrong but in comparison to the profiteering made off of the war it is a joke that this guy's even going to jail think about the trillions of dollars spent on the post nine eleven wars of luxury tons of big companies have all got huge pieces of the burger pie like raytheon with their missiles lockheed martin with their jets and hello burton and blackwater and so on and so on hey when all these big companies milk the system with big contracts during war why should the average grunt take part in alluding to what reason does this kelly guy have to not also try to make a buck off the war it seems like in the world there are people who are often punished not because they steal but because they still far too little while not wearing nice suits but that's just my opinion. your friends post a photo from a vacation you can't. call it different. the boss
1:26 am
repeats the same old joke of course you like. your ex-girlfriend stupids tear jerking poetry keep jobs norris. we post only we. are to do your facebook you street. there i marinated this is boom bust and these are the stories that we're tracking for you today. first up we're taking a closer look at the year's fifteen billion dollar aid package to ukraine it might sound nice of first but we're taking a look at the fine print seen what's really behind the offer then i sat down earlier today with golden guru james turk the co-founder and director of gold money dot com and he told me all about his new book the money bubble you won't want to
1:27 am
miss my interview with him and finally in today's big deal edward harrison and i discussed how a lead to a lead airline status is really what it all starts right now. with each passing day ukrainian government's financial condition becomes more dire now according to research by morgan stanley ukraine has about ten billion dollars in debt redemptions coming due in twenty fourteen alone now ukrainian officials have made it very clear that they need thirty five billion dollars over the next two years or else they're probably screwed to put it nicely they'll end up defaulting on some of the one hundred thirty six billion dollars in debt they
1:28 am
currently hold an event that could end up sending shock waves through emerging markets now ukraine has less than twenty billion in foreign reserves and it owes eight billion including debts to the i.m.f. and as as much. two billion to russian natural gas company gazprom but after wednesday it now looks like ukraine could get up to thirty billion dollars from the i.m.f. you and us collectively however it's not without conditions the european union is preparing to offer the struggling country up to fifteen billion dollars in grants and loans in order to help shore up its new government and this comes only one day after the white house announced a one billion dollar loan guarantee for ukraine now many believe this deal would prepare ukraine's economy for eventual membership however it's unclear how much of this money will be available as cash cash that the ukraine can use to pay its existing debts and coming debt redemptions now if you remember back to november
1:29 am
ukraine rejected a deal from the e.u. for a fifteen billion dollars loan from russia that deal being the russian one admin added an additional five billion dollars in natural gas subsidies so ukraine opted for the russian offer in part because the russian deal gave cash immediately to ukraine along with those subsidies that i mentioned now the russian deal could have made ukraine ready for c.i.s. customs union membership now that's custom union is between russia belarus and cause extend and it would lay the foundation for membership in this eurasian union however as we know today the rejection of the deal sparked by lindt protest in ukraine and the u.s. and the you have suggested that their aid is conditional conditional being the operative word conditional upon ukraine entering into a formal i.m.f. program and this would include harsh economic terms similar to what the i.m.f. and the e.u. have offered greece and portugal now ukrainian officials had already been
1:30 am
negotiating with the i.m.f. for six years when they opted not to take the i.m.f. deal in november the i.m.f. has repeated the frozen aid over disagreements about ukraine's economic policy in october two thousand and nine ahead of national. elections previous ukrainian president viktor. yushchenko signed a bill to increase the minimum wage by over twenty percent this place the i.m.f. chew your sixteen point four billion dollar bailout off track and as a result of the i.m.f. suspended payment in november two thousand and nine then you shan't go last to yet a coach an ex-president yulia timoshenko in february twenty eighth ten american giving it to give you a little effort with these names so in two thousand and ten under. the i.m.f. approved a two and a half year fifteen point two billion dollar loan program for ukraine now this was under the condition that ukraine enact austerity measures to reduce its budget deficit and reduce natural gas subsidies but in two thousand and eleven the i.m.f.
1:31 am
froze this deal when key have failed to implement the required conditions what's more is the i.m.f. deal isn't ready cash some four billion dollars from the i.m.f. would come over the next several years in the form of loan and development grants while levin billion would come in the form of financing for infrastructure and development projects by european financial institutions but the real question is will this deal give ukraine the cash that it needs well the president of the european commission jose emmanuel barroso was vague about all the details but what we do know is this there are also offered eleven billion euros over the next couple of years including two point two billion dollars in loans and two billion dollars in grants as well as four billion dollars in new credit from the european investment bank through two thousand and sixteen the deal has to be approved by all members that's one of the points though and before the money is available all those guys got to agree there are also said he discussed details on thursday with
1:32 am
ukraine's interim prime minister while he's attending an emergency summit of leaders in kiev basically the bottom line is if ukraine wants the money they're going to have to fight for it. gold some call it a barbarous relic others call it money james turkey is one of those guys it calls money now james has ever forty years experience in international banking finance and investments in two thousand and one james co-founded gold money where he remains the director today he has a new book out called the money bubble what to do before it pops and i started my conversation with james earlier today by asking him what the book was all about take a look. the money itself is important to society and we've really lost sight of what
1:33 am
money is money is not credit or the promise to pay at some point in time in the future money is attention last at the exchange for another tangible asset if you use anything other than a tangible us of this money you basically have payment risk and what we've seen is that payment risk comes with a lot of potential trouble two thousand and eight was a good example of the payment risk when lehman brothers went under there been other bags so the failed that highlighted the risks of the what we use now as as a form of money and my point is the key point of the book is that you know gold has been money for five thousand years for the past four decades we've been using credit paper instead of actual physical metal then i think that this is created a bubble and ultimately gold going to go back to its rightful the traditional role at the center of global commerce now james where are we seeing the money bubble in terms of asset price inflation. well you've seen it in a number of different areas particularly the way the super rich are moving out of
1:34 am
money into things we've seen it in collectibles you know in things like paintings an andy warhol painting went for one hundred million dollars not too long ago here in london we're seeing it in real estate where prices just keep going up and up because people understand that it's safer to own something like a building or a painting rather than currencies which are going to be based by central bank printing quantitative easing or whatever you want to call it there's a lot of risk associated right now with national currencies so people are moving into things that's one of the reason why gold has been rising you know for the past . over a decade now i'm glad you bring that up and let's talk about all now gold is a tangible asset but it's not a productive asset and it's not farmland or stocks which are tied to revenue streams or potential economic production now i want you to take a quick listen to what warren buffett says about this. if you buy gold today you hold it a hundred years you can go to it every day and you're good you can do it and you
1:35 am
can correct and you can flog. one hundred years now you know one ounce or go about it won't have done anything for you in between if you buy a hundred acres of farmland it will produce for you every year you could use that money to buy more farm or i'm going to have all kinds of things for one hundred years that will produce things for you and you still have a hundred acres of farmland that they have. now maybe he is trying to sell his property and the real question is why should anyone buying gold. yet because gold is money you can put a stack of one hundred dollar bills in a vault and come back in a hundred years or a stack of british pound notes in a vault and come back when they're two years but those next to the gold gold will still have the same purchasing power of the pound and the british pound notes will not an ounce of gold still buys the same on a crude oil that it did fifty sixty years ago and that's a gold still. buys a man suit an ounce of gold in roman ancient roman times would buy a toga for roman sun senator the thing is that we need money in our economy and the
1:36 am
two types of money there's physical money like gold and silver or there's paper money which is based on promises and money that's based on promises is faulty it has problems loses purchasing power as gold and silver do not and the reason why gold doesn't it's actually very important it's the only asset that we produce for accumulation all of the gold mine throughout history still exists and it's above ground stock and importantly it grows by about one and three quarters percent per annum consistently year after year after year so it fits very well in milton friedman is what he called a scale rule that in order to have stable purchasing power you need a stable growth in the in the money supply and gold does this perfectly now recently our goal seems to be getting a bit of a safe haven bid to the volatility in emerging markets why do you think the price of gold is increasing. well if if there are monetary problems around the world and those monetary problems can be caused by
1:37 am
a variety of different things that could be caused by central bank actions that can be caused by threats of war or an outbreak of war you know people will move in out of illiquid things into safe things and of a safe a sub them all is gold and the reason why it's a tangible asset gold does not have any counterparty risk it's not based on a promise like all other of national currencies so if you want to own something that's outside the banking system you really want to own physical gold and to give you a good example is you know there's a lot of economic warfare that's been waged over the past few decades banks have been frozen for some individuals and when countries have having economic war against one another. the swift international payment system has been used as a an economic weapon in the past all of these things are contingent upon national currencies gold as a tangible asset and you can avoid all of the risks of otherwise associated with national currencies when you own physical metal you know here's the question now if
1:38 am
there's some sort of apocalyptic event you know you can't eat gold and you can't really do anything with it it's better to have spam in that situation would you not agree. but what you do with gold is you use it for economic calculation in other words you measure the prices of goods and services or you measure the amount of purchasing power that it can convey it does what money is supposed to do it also does another part that money supposed to do it preserves purchasing power over long periods of time as i just explained a moment ago the only thing that gold doesn't do is it doesn't generally circulate as currency and the reason why it doesn't is because of an economic principle called gresham's law where the bad money drives out the good money drives the good money out of circulation the bad money gets spent and the good money gets saved so people spend their currencies and they save gold this is the way it's been for the last forty years but as i was saying earlier i think gold will once again at some point in time in the future also become a currency once more. already you know i want to talk about this i'm hearing
1:39 am
reports of heavy buyers of gold in china and india yet meanwhile i'm also hearing about people in the west being net sellers of gold so the question is is there some sort of net flow of gold from the west to the east. yeah that's absolutely right in the east where i actually spent most of the one nine hundred seventy s. living in asia and most of the one nine hundred eighty s. living in the middle east so i'm familiar with those parts of the world they have an intuitive understanding that gold is money you know they might look at warren buffett statement about gold and scratch their heads as to why he would even say something like that because they understand intuitively that gold has usefulness utility in economic calculation as a form of money and what we've seen recently because central banks and central planners have been forcing the price down through interventions in the market the price of gold is very low it's not understood in the west how good value gold is it is very well understood in the east how good gold value is at these prices so
1:40 am
you're seeing this flow of physical model from the west to the east what's being done here in the west is that paper prices paper market representations for physical gold but instead of physical gold themselves you know derivatives of various sorts are being used to keep the price lower because when you keep the price of gold lower it makes the dollar and the euro and other national currencies look better but what this does is for people who really understand gold usefulness and utility the opportunity to get out of national currencies and into physical novel at very very attractive prices. time now for a very quick break but stick around because when we return more from my interview with james turk then in today's big deal edward harrison and i talk about how much harder it's going to be for folks to get to the front of the plane thanks to many new models being implemented by airlines i'll tell you all about it but as we go to break here are a look at some your closing numbers of the bell today stick around. ride

investigation the fishing industry reveals the hidden. spread all over. you haven't the whole world profit defeats a person. furthermore. i don't. really know what's inside the.

1:44 am
least a little less than two of the other tony and when you are stuck in the rock on the coral reef like ten meters down nuclear tests and never ending legacy. welcome back now for the second half of my conversation with james turk i started off by asking him you know what about this proposed new loans in the ukraine i want to ask him specifically where this money that was going to be proposed by the e.u. to the ukraine was going to come from this was his reaction to that question out of thin air it's not really money it's just promises that they basically are making so you know you've got to take this with a certain grain of salt you know money like everything else in the world world comes from hard work it doesn't come from some promise to pay in the future here's a good example or an if. i go into a shop and i say i want to buy
1:45 am
a loaf of bread and i'll pay the shopkeeper in a week's time the shopkeeper hasn't been paid if i go in and say here take this national currency the shopkeeper still hasn't been paid because until he takes that promise the national currency he still accepting credit yes to take that promise and buy some good or service with it but if i go in and pay for it with a gold or silver coin there is no lingering obligations he's exchanging attention you know the good he selling for the tench will us that i'm using to pay and i think that's really the importance of gold it shows that there is no kind of party risk and ultimately you know this is what money has been for five thousand years and i think ultimately we're going to go back to that once the money bubble pops james when we spoke to casey about precious metals he indicated that he saw gold is unique in that it's not an industrial metal but savvy investors such as warren buffett they've been drawn to silver in the recent past and buffett famously bought one hundred thirty million ounces of silver in the late ninety's and then sold in
1:46 am
two thousand and six what do you think of silver as an investment vehicle. well i'm actually more bullish on silver than i am on gold and the reason why is that i look at the ratio of how many ounces of silver it takes to purchase a one ounce of gold historically it's about sixteen ounces of silver is equal to one ounce of gold at the moment it's about sixty two or sixty three ounces of silver it's equal to one ounce of gold so relative to gold even though gold is cheap so over looks even cheaper now the problem with silver is that unlike gold which is basically has its value only because it's a form of money silver really has two roles it has an industrial role and it also has a monetary role in that sense its monetary role is can be seen as a substitute for gold because when you own sixty three ounces of silver it does the same thing for you as one ounce of gold at present it's money outside the banking system but because you have to demand coming from these two different areas industrial and monetary silver can be very very volatile and therefore it's not for
1:47 am
everybody but if you have concluded that you want to own some precious metals i do recommend that you look at silver and if you're prepared to accept the volatility in the risk that's associated with that have some say physical silver in your portfolio as well generally i recommend no more than one third of your precious metals b. and silver with the remaining two thirds in gold but again this is just a general statement everybody has to do what fits their own personal circumstances when buffett sold itself are some believe he was forced out of the near or silver if asked now what's your take on paper sell for. my take on paper silver is the same as paper gold of the way to all cars if you want to own the real thing let me put it this way you have to decide why you want to own gold or why you want to own silver if you're looking at them as a safe haven a tangible asset then you have to buy the actual physical metal on the other hand if you're a speculator or
1:48 am
a professional trader and you want to profit from fluctuations in the price of silver or gold you know buying it if you think it's going to go up or selling it short if you think it's going to go down then you can deal in the paper gold or the paper silver market you know futures contracts options and things of that nature you know leave that paper market to the professionals leave it to the speculators for the average individual what you really need to look at is physical gold and physical silver and you can do it in either two ways you can buy it and store it yourself or you can buy it and have someone store it for you if you choose this professional storage option make sure they have good governance procedures so that you know that your gold and silver always safe appears i want to ask you does paper silver like silver in c.s. have the actual physical commodity backing their shares there or do you think they're just playing fast and loose they have a derivatives market. you know that's really a very good question aaron you know back ten years ago when the e.t.s. wrister first started appearing i was quite optimistic about them and the potential
1:49 am
that they would have. on the price of gold and you know make it a convenient way to buy physical silver but you know after studying it and in particular reading through all of the prospectuses of the various e.t.s. there are so many loopholes in there that i really question whether all of the physical model is actually there so again i see an e.t.f. not really as a representation not really as a way of acquiring physical metal i just see it as a again a paper gold or a paper silver scheme and it should be left to people who are looking to benefit from the fluctuations in gold or silver price rather than somebody who's looking to gold or silver as a safe haven. you know recently a lot of people are talking about the prospect of deflation yet you are concerned with inflation why is that. well i'm actually concerned with hyper inflation to be quite honest the reason why i'm concerned about this is that if you go back and
1:50 am
look in there been many hyperinflation. and you know the in the past century they manifest themselves in different ways but they have always the same cause a government has control of the monetary process the government wants to spend money it's spending more money than it's receiving in revenue which forces it to go out and borrow and eventually the government's reach a stage where people are either unwilling or unable to lend to the government anymore money so the government then turns to the central bank and forces the central bank to turn this government paper into currency used to be called money printing now it's called quantitative easing but when you turn government paper into currency your ultimate lee on the road to hyperinflation or the destruction of the currency and is really a function of two different things you know we talk about the quantity of money and one and two and three but we nor most of the time the demand for money but money
1:51 am
like any other goods or service has a supply and demand and what happens as too much money printing occurs eventually the demand for currency lessons and whenever you have a lessening demand for something it's price or in the case of money it's purchasing power declines and we're seeing this now again in certain asset classes mainly the super rich in a get it they understand that there's a flight from the currency they've already begun by spending their money on any kind of tangible asset they can get their their hands on rather than leaving their money sitting in a bank having a risk of a bank failure having a risk of a bail and having a risk of inflation or much more money printing and my sense of it is that this momentum this trend that's been underway now for four decades basically since we stopped the formal link to the gold standard back in one thousand nine hundred one has enabled the. cumulation of misguided policy and misguided conventional wisdom
1:52 am
and that's the essence of the money bubble and what we as individuals have to do is recognize what's going on and take those steps to protect ourselves come what may particularly if this money bubble pops which i expect that it will. that was james turk author of the money bubble what to do before it pops time now for today's big deal. in today's big deal edward harrison sits down with me to discuss air miles for money or miles from i've been talking a lot about exclusive fancy stuff lately but specifically what we wanted to talk about today is how airline companies are revamping their frequent flyer programs based on ticket prices not miles traveled is this just another step toward separating the plebeians from the patricians is that. now in twenty fifteen delta airlines will start awarding customers reward miles
1:53 am
a based on how much they pay for their ticket instead of the distance that they traveled now joining southwest airlines in their rapid rewards program they have something similar southwest airlines have bloomberg businessweek has reported that united airlines also plans to peg rewards to spending levels in addition to mileage requirements so read can you explain what the economics are behind this program what is going on here boils down to is that you know everyone is. a loyal to programmer and so. what they've seen is that they get to the huge margins first class and business class and so with this loyalty program that they want to they don't want just they want to be able to separate they want to have price discrimination based on the people that are going to give them the biggest margin and they can only do that if they can put people in different tiers and know that those are the people those are the customers that are most profitable
1:54 am
right now they don't know that everyone who is in the higher tears or the profit they just might have just been travelling a lot that year because they have sick grandmother or those i said. are really cheap tickets in the right way going. hi acar priceline or something to exacerbate a chip on but we talked about a story just like this just a week or so ago and we discussed the exclusive amenities offered to high paying customers by airlines now these exclusive amenities come with a price tag said take a look at how much a round trip flight on cathay pacific between new york and hong kong cost i took that flight oh a lot fortunately the company paying for it was sixteen hundred dollars in coach sixty one dollars just for courage seventy six hundred for business and nineteen k. it's a back nine thousand came first class now that's a huge gap between coach and first how are airlines going to use this huge gap to determine this elite status that's the question well you know i think the two examples that you gave were interesting with the united. in the delta example is
1:55 am
that you know the sixteen one hundred was that nineteen thousand that's going to be what you're going to get in terms of miles so you need to see this huge tender in terms of you know what you get in their loyalty program versus the other one which is exactly like it used to be except they have sort of a cap that you know it's not just going to be miles to get you into our program but if you don't spend the money you can't get it isn't that like having a fancy credit card you have to pay just to hold the credit card you know wasn't aware that i don't know you have your green card and then you have the next two years so they you know they have already pre auditions you so to speak in the card or the platinum card but the thing about those cards that's interesting is that once you're in the program you stay with this if you don't meet the requirements every year than you are now here's the question why do you think airlines are now paying more attention to this a lead customer or not even a lead but high paying customer customer now versus before well you know the have
1:56 am
had a really hard time over the last ten to fifteen years ever since deregulation and it's a hard industry it's a difficult industry and they've decided you know look. you know we've got to make sure that all of our loyalty programs go along with the incentives that we're trying to offer we want these business people. first class people to feel like kings you know it's good goes back in love with this whole sort of plutonic me thing that people are talking about unfortunately this this this class to visit and we're seeing that reflected in terms of what people can pay and therefore the airlines are getting into the microcosm of life that is air travel it's kind of scary that's all for now back so you can see all segments on. you tube dot com backslash the best our team tweeted us at our nate at edward n.h. shout we're out.

2:00 am
if there's not. somebody. leaked conversation between european diplomats address that deadly shootings during the recent riots in kiev what carried out by anti government forces and had nothing to do with the ousted president. had no shot at this is fired by very good for society i'm sure there was some outside force involved in the publications of the downstream on both sides which it was an organized team of professional. we hear from a special force commander who witnessed the mayhem in kiev firsthand but whose division was unarmed and unable to defend its south. meanwhile moscow and washington are due to continue tense negotiations of ukraine with no compromise yet on the horizon. and downing street is accused of
2:01 am
a couple run after their arrest for one of the british prime minister's closest aides on child pornography allegations. hello and welcome to our international twenty four hour news a live from moscow my name is you national power our main story now. so these are the images that shocked the world just a few weeks ago when over eighty people will show during a riot in key ukraine's government ben insisted that police had nothing to do with the killings and now those claims have been independently backed up in the league's conversation with the e.u.'s foreign policy chief a stern is top diplomat says it was the same snipers who targeted ballers activists
2:02 am
and police. well the evidence shows that people who were killed by snipers from both sides among policemen and people from the streets that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides the lot yeah but the same same handwriting the same type of bullets and it's really disturbing that now with the new. nuclear fission that they don't want to investigate what exactly happened so that there is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind snipers stable it was not a quote which but it's a somebody from the new coalition the e.u. foreign policy chief have refused to comment but the authenticity of the conversation has been confirmed by the news foreign minister and even though it can be carefully clearly heard in the recording saying the snipers were hired by someone in ukraine's new coalition the diplomat later insisted this does not
2:03 am
implement the current authorities the less the revelations could help the public understand the true faith of those now in power in kiev as international affairs experts are on about to make. i sincerely hope those bills awareness amongst the people as commentators said is you it was mentioned you knew about this note of sound this information for a few days actually it was leaked and what i actually had said but it really does not surprise me one bit one of the most powerful and universal measures the spending i think is the regional propaganda and this is used in politics to more. people so was i was. this not only the population of the europeans but americans that ukraine needs to be saved from a democratically elected president. of our correspondents have
2:04 am
experienced exactly what it feels like to be within range of sniper fire bullets shot at the windows of the house helen downtown and i'll see crew was staying during a reporting assignment while blood was being spilled on the streets outside when the government collapses the back especial forces that have been that have been tasked with ensuring order what does bounded by the new self-proclaimed authorities many of the officers took refuge in crimea and that's where you are caught up with one of their commanders here. and some point we clearly understood that this was no longer like the peaceful protests of two thousand and four and two thousand and seven this time it was all about provocation not only violent but dirty tactics by the rioters while we were on armed we didn't even have non-lethal weapons the plan of those who masterminded this was to make the bird could force crumble to be
2:05 am
moralized and pressure us to switch sides but that didn't happen and then came the worst the shooting rounds are fired at both sides but as i've already told you we didn't have any weapons it was so difficult to understand what was. happenings but officers just began falling to the ground one by one so would became clear people were dying from bullets but again no shots could have been fired by berg could foresee i'm sure there was some outside force a third party involved in the provocations and the deaths on both sides it was an organized team of professionals. meanwhile an unprecedented war was has been intensifying by the day with the western politicians and the media using strong language when it comes to russia's role in the ukrainian crisis and this is after the same politicians gave their backing to violent riots in kiev less than a month ago oh he's going there to check out investigate.
2:06 am
aggression is the word that you often hear in the u.s. media and from u.s. officials with regard to russia's presence in ukraine what they fail to show is the aggression. it's very difficult to talk about aggression when you show thousands of people cheering for russia in different parts of ukraine right maybe that's why you don't see this kind of footage on us t.v. very often but if you do see this coverage in which russia's military presence there in itself is presented as an intervention what the and curse and pundits often fail to mention is that you have an agreement under which russia has a lot to deploy twenty five thousand troops in ukraine it now has presumably sixteen thousand or so so you get a kick picture where the u.s. presents anything that goes against the interests of those who took power in kiev as an aggression and the revolution there as this peaceful pickover of power. these brave ukrainians took to the streets in order to stand peacefully against tyranny
2:07 am
and to demand the barkers. so instead they were met with strikers who picked them off one after the other one wonders if the police with molotov cocktails and shooting at them qualifies as standing peacefully according to secretary kerry a huge part of ukraine had no say in the power grab but my don secretary kerry apparently present it as a triumph of democracy. we've heard no comments from him on the leaks conversation between the e.u. foreign affairs chief catherine ashton and historian foreign minister where they talk about evidence that leaders not you know college give orders to snipers and the media on something like this i mean you would expect breaking news everywhere we're talking about evidence that those who are now celebrating victory in kiev may have well ordered snipers to shoot both peaceful protesters and the police but no none of that for hours it went unnoticed because it doesn't fit into the narrative
2:08 am
as it but what the u.s. media was quick to pick up on were unverified reports like this one. robert serry has agreed to give up his mission here in ukraine he's of cool is the u.n. special envoy to ukraine he's from the netherlands a father of three and he was taken against his will a short time ago by militia so after a great deal of hysteria the u.n. confirmed that the envoy was not kidnapped but he did come across a group of protestors and the envoy who was apparently escorted by police at the time decided to leave to avoid further tension the general picture that you get is that of the u.s. mainstream media jumping on anything very fighter on verify to present russia as an aggressor without much or any knowledge of what's happening on the ground and u.s. officials wealth they continue their self-righteous tirade while being gauging
2:09 am
actual acts of aggression around the world with innocent people dying every day in drone strikes are from violence in countries that were destabilized by the u.s. in washington i'm going to check on our team. and with the world's top politicians busy pointing the finger at russia for alleged aggression the ghosts of ukraine's darkest past us finding their way into the new government read of course by his claims. there is a case of history repeating itself here political and financial chaos rules in ukraine while a dangerous wave of ultra nationalism is threatening to take power but instead of helping resolve the situation everyone there is adding fuel to the fire nuremberg process documents russia say soviet site at the time they try to to press the western allies to recognize what you are calling bomb derose and others that they
2:10 am
were killers why nuremberg process did not recognize that one because because it was falsified because. the position of the soviet union the time was not fair and this is why i protect my people from all these labels i protect them the pond and there i was a nazi collaborator who led a nationalist organization that corporates had with hitler's troops during the second world war then there are fought the soviets for independence ukrainian states and in the process he also ethnically cleansed tens of thousands of jews russians and poles. despite the controversial nature of his exhibits he continues to have a strong following even after his that he was even awarded the title of hero of ukraine in two thousand and ten by then president of ukraine viktor yuschenko the
2:11 am
move was condemned by several ansi fascists and human rights organizations as well as the european parliament even though the following year the award was officially an old the idea has been there are spread about sewage boiling point and spill onto the streets. they took up machine guns and fought the russians the germans and the jews those who wanted to take away our ukrainian land. this is a new generation of been there are followers marching to commemorate his one hundred fifth birthday different faces same ideology they belong to the so-called freedom party an extreme right wing political group with representation in parliament one that has also been the squad as a neo nazi organization. it was these people who are at the heart of kiev's and rice and violence. it's these people the west is now
2:12 am
supporting and in the drawer it's only helping them spread the message of racism xenophobia and anti semitism green accost r.t. . the u.s. secretary of state says that america will be found its military presence in the baltic region close to russia's western border it forms part of washington's response to the situation in ukraine as john kerry pointed out after a meeting with russia's foreign minister. brings us all that. well first of all the u.s. secretary of state john kerry had again reiterated that for him a russia had violated the sovereignty of ukraine and that russia had made the wrong choice but russia had maintained from the very start that all its movements in crimea in the region had been within the legalities of the agreement that it had signed and now john kerry also reiterated that the dialogue is paramount in trying to find a solution to the ukrainian the crimean crisis however at the same time the u.s. has announced that it will bolster its military presence in the baltic region as
2:13 am
part of washington's a response to the ukrainian crisis and that the united states currently a provides for f. fifteen still nato is a baltic air policing rotation but they will be sending six more additional f. fifty one k.c. one three five in order to augment this mission and while on a different note the meeting between the two ministers started off with a rather informal and the somewhat light to exchange when the two of them were sitting on different sides of the table. who are. now at an apparent jibe to kerry sergey lavrov it hinted at the a far right organization in the ukraine now what's next will be more talks of the two had said that the intense discussions will continue in rome. and there will be u.s. presidential kind of the wrong he believes america has
2:14 am
a right to blame russia. for us to lecture anybody about violating sovereignty what about the sovereignty of iraq and afghanistan and yemen and north africa and we're constantly being involved pakistan and used to drone missiles we have eight hundred bases around the world we're in one hundred thirty countries where always involved it seems in somebody else's alexion and we preach democracy we finally got democracy theoretically you know in egypt there was an election and of course we didn't like the person they elected so we said let's go back to the military so i don't i don't like hypocrisy and for us to preach one thing at the same time behind the scenes we're doing things to stir up trouble for many many different reasons stay with us here and also internationally as we bring you the latest developments on ukraine and the way if and stay in for refusing to leave the house.
2:15 am
even the animals have rights in a family with three children and we. want what is seen in families standards ground as is expands they take over the land after the break. the first issue that this government this interim government preoccupied itself which was the future of the russian language in ukraine and that's at a time when. the country is in cannes so that's the sort of shows you just read that government was prepared to take the issue is you know what appears to be to many people at least in the west let's say a disproportionate use of force and the de facto occupation of crimea.

the. economic down in the final. days the longer the deal and the rest because i would still be a little be if we told me. we'll

call it on the road side to the car skidded at breakneck speed and fell into a ditch and i was thrown out of the car she was like a broken down it wasn't the single piece left i thought if i lived and had a chance to start my life from scratch with it i would start making do to help children and to give them a grade after he was born the baby was all in casts. his legs are getting bigger and the ortho cysts get too small so we have to order new ones. or has raised money for us. to get a leg braces five years after my potentially fatal injuries in
2:18 am
a car crash i gave birth to my little niece and i think she's my reward for helping all those children who are selling the dogs to buy life for the children. welcome back to aussie international downing street isn't whole told about a geisha is that it's a time to sweep under the rug the rest of a close aide of the prime minister over a child pornography probe the fishbowl part of his role was to advise online porn filters reportedly warned that police were investigating him hours before he was detained. city sales. his name is patrick rock and he is in fact a veteran conservative party david cameron's deputy chief of staff he's been called cameron spics and he's had what one might call unparalleled access to access to
2:19 am
power over a very long time over the last four decades right there in the heart of government the irony lies in the fact that he's also been closely involved in drawing up government policy on internet pornography filters and this is a man who was rested arrested recently on suspicion of what everybody's calling an offense related to child abuse images so not just pornography but what appears to be child pornography now his arrest happened on february the twelfth and he then resigned but this was all on the quiet downing street appears to have covered it up until it was confronted with it now over the last three weeks no one said anything about this but apart from the prime minister who apparently has known for three weeks he said he was very concerned that the matter should be handled correctly that he didn't want to brief preemptively on a criminal investigation against
2:20 am
a member of his staff but his critics who are mainly labor members of parliament opposition say that this raises a number of questions for example what. did patrick rock have is that other stuff that we don't know about it's also emerged by the way that rock had previously been accused of sexual harassment which was dealt with by his boss at downing street to a political figure rather than a civil servant they could not very usual so again some sort of oddity going on there the prime minister is being accused of a cover up and his labor critics say that this undermines the entire credibility and effectiveness of the government. and the deputy editor of politics dot co dot u.k. alec stevenson says the government has some explaining to do to regain public trust . voters are baffled by what they're hearing at the moment what seems really strange to them is that three weeks have passed since such a senior advisor close friend of the prime minister david cameron to britain have
2:21 am
passed since he since he left the government left number ten and resigned that is a very odd but what's even stranger here is that this man who now faces allegations that he says child abuse images. was warned by number ten before his arrest and so clearly there are lots and lots of questions going around huge suspicion and number ten's got a lot of questions to answer. and on our website for you right now keeping all places covered the you are still maintain its legal gracious near the korean peninsula but it isn't beijing or pyongyang that's warring washington find out at all to dot com. under russian one french scientists have discovered a living setting fowls and year old virus in siberia their own alfy is they could be as a dead live microorganisms under the frost get more of that at our website. to

states in particular well first of all let me just go back to the five years ago when secretary hillary clinton met with foreign minister all of roles she presented him the reset button which said reset in english and it said pettigrew sky in russian and of course mr lavrov pointed out that that's the wrong word that's the word for overload in english it's part is our group sky and then i remember commerce on tata headline the next day clinton lover of push the wrong button so in a sense this is a relationship that has been overloaded there have been so many issues where we have disagreed there have been other issues where we have worked together. and i see what's happened recently in ukraine obviously on a number of different levels what triggered it was the problems within ukraine itself and the dissatisfaction of the people with the government the failure to sign an agreement with the european union is a symbol of that but it goes much deeper than that but isn't it also true that the
2:31 am
united states and west and russia to some extent were all too eager to exploit some of the disenchantment that the population that the people of ukraine felt it at the edges and when it comes to the west it is true that many people on my down of were dissatisfied but that doesn't mean that. a democratically elected government needed to be deposed especially within a couple of months from the next elections well i don't think anyone in the west foresaw that there was going to be you know what was going to happen in november i mean the e.u. was offering ukraine a reasonable package obviously not as much as president putin and russia offered mr young a car which later on. in the united states was the. doesn't really present i mean the united states basically was allowing or wanted the europeans to work out their deal with ukraine the u.s. really only stepped in once all the demonstrations that begun and it wasn't clear what was going to happen now i understand that the russian media have portrayed
2:32 am
this as something supported by the u.s. by the europeans and that these are quote unquote fascists but you know the situation there is much more complicated and this is not something that anyone in the west wanted to see a breakdown of governmental structures and then to let me take an issue with what you just said about the russian media and their portrayal of the station after everything we saw happening on my dime you know a number of american officials showing up there with. those intercepted phone conversations it's really hard to believe that the united states was this impartial observer but switching gears a little bit. on to use the president putin and made his first appearance before our russian media here how the news conference which gave him a chance to explain his rationale and he was adamant that russia's actions were represented eligible mint response to what he sees as illegitimate seizure of power
2:33 am
now in addition to answering questions he also posed one and let me play it for you i would like you to answer what he actually asked. given you know for me there's a big question. nor my colleagues. and you know i've been discussing the ukrainian crisis over the lot of our partners has this been done. you worked in the state department he understands how decision makers in washington think what was the point as far as americans are concerned of siding with this unconstitutional government or endorsing this and. institutional change of government because i mean elections are just around the corner and it's still an open question how long that government will stay in power well i mean let me take you back to february the twenty first all right so the agreement was signed
2:34 am
between the various groups and the foreign ministers of germany other european countries and of course mr lucchino was in the room although i know he didn't sign it then something happened right you have a covert you left nobody's quite clear exactly how or why that happened but that was not something that was instigated by any western country so then you're done then you have to deal with the reality that mr you had a covert has disappeared nobody knew where he was for a couple of days then of course he went to russia and you have people in kiev who say well we're going to be the interim government i mean otherwise it would have been a complete breakdown of all governmental structures all all or in order to so you know the u.s. and the european countries are now dealing with this interim government which of course wasn't elected by anyone but there's otherwise there'd be a total power vacuum because mr yanna coverage just disappeared well enough to stand what's in paris may i have nothing to do with this with unocal is
2:35 am
disappearing but they may have something to do with involved in it to protest it to the degree that they resorted to the use of force because we we know that some of the elements within the protests moment. were aren't they used force to occupy government buildings mr unocal which in his latest press conference claimed that he was shot at by protesters that he's convoy was attacked saying. share some of the responsibility of what they can is that we saw on the streets of ukraine by emboldening protesters encouraging them to the anti well but you know the shootings first of all a lot of the shootings were also by trained snow. those who were clearly not protesters but they were you know from some different government structures i mean those units of now being disbanded the west had nothing to do with arming anyone in the my. and so you know it doesn't bear responsibility for the violence there's
2:36 am
obviously a lot of different stories but clearly there was violence on both sides but of the eighty people who died most of them were the victims of government related forces who were trained snipers who were shooting them so again i think one you know one has to accept that there's an enormous amount there was an enormous amount of chaos there but the west wasn't involved in any violence well the west again certainly wasn't involved and any violence but it sided with the protesters from the very beginning and that again. may have created an impression that everything everything goes essentially now turning our attention to russia's actions of each part of a lot of controversy not only in the west but also in russia this threat of using force to restore constitutional order in ukraine now i'm sure you know that russia has a lot of activity in ukraine a lot and stake in ukraine and i'm talking about. the russian base there the
2:37 am
possibility of ukraine joining nato and not to mention you know extensive economic cultural historic ties between the two countries now given how much of that was threatened by these armed seizure of power and by the emergence of this government the government that is clearly on to russian is it really surprising that russia reacted in the way a deed did have any other options of protecting its inches there well i think we have to be very careful so i agree with you that this interim government immediately trying to pass legislation degrading the russian language and its use in ukraine that was clearly a mistake and they shouldn't have done it and i guess that lore is now no longer operative i mean. i understand obviously russia does have very important equities it has the black sea bass and of course it has a lease now until twenty forty two it's not clear to me that they i am not aware of
2:38 am
any threats that were made in kiev that somehow they would revise the issue of the basing of the black sea fleet there no one race that's of the question is did rush or in order to protect its equities there didn't need to have such a strong showing of force i think that's the issue no one is questioning that russia has the right to protect what it has in crimea but it's how it did it just and what was russia's other option because in the beginning of this crisis russia clearly pursued a diplomatic route it was. you know part of the any gauche ations that were taking place in key if it was calling for a diplomatic solution and you know you don't need to take my word for it even the some of the foreign diplomats for example the polish foreign minister to sluff sikorsky who is hardly buys over is russia sad that when the ousted president viktor yushchenko was negotiating a deal with the opposition that he reportedly received
2:39 am
a call for putin encouraging him to make concessions so could it be also the case that after trying to place to play nice and civil and abide by the rules most will simply realize that the strategy was not only naif it was foolish because it essentially left to russia. potentially endangering all its interests there because the more concessions were made the more opposition the ante but there was no threat to the black sea fleet or true crime scene from this very weak and fragile interim government i mean it it only being in power if that's the way right way to describe it for a few days so it there's nothing that precipitated the need for this huge show of force the issue. is. what appears to be to many people at least in the west let's say a disproportionate use of force and the de facto patient of crimea dr
2:40 am
sent you just mentioned that there were absolutely nothing that would. last thing that these government would threaten in any way russia's long term security interest but then you also mention that the first issue that this government this interim government preoccupied itself with was the future of the russian language in ukraine and that's at a time when half of the countries in care so that's the sort of shows you that should jacques to read that government was prepared to take but the question i would like to pose to you obviously is that matter was very controversial i mean it is still hotly debated within russia the the idea of russian troops being in ukraine for whatever reason is highly painful for many russian people but. living the moral aspect of that aside isn't that also true that that proved highly effective as well because you know after weeks and months of trying to negotiate
2:41 am
with the opposition and trying to. persuade the opposition and the west to come to some sort of compromise here russia has everything you'd ever want to them and the other day five form our american ambassadors to ukraine had an open letter published and they leased pretty much everything russia has requested so we may not like this military option then but it seems to be that is it is highly effective i agree with you that obviously by using the military option russia has getting what it wanted it's de facto you know crimea will be a part of russia or even if it's not technically proud of the russian federation it's certainly not going to have the same relationship to the ukrainian state you know it fresh i had wondered before to have ukraine join the eurasian union. that i can see that happening or at least for a very long time and clearly with all of the moves that have been announced by the united states and also by the european union it has cost russia something
2:42 am
politically and it certainly cost russia something economically i would say there of course for russia they may well be outweighed from the kremlin's point of view by the gains but this is not without costs as well well i totally agree with you the only. thing that i would add is that made it clear that he's not interested in and next thing crimea and i think it would be an extremely difficult undertaking for him to do a given the current circumstances but let's take a short break now when we come back is the ukrainian stand of a turning point in the u.s. russian relationship or rather the point of no return that's coming up in a few moments on worlds apart. wheel caught on the road side to the car skidded at breakneck speed and fell into
2:43 am
a ditch and i was thrown out of the car it was like a broken dome it wasn't a single piece left i thought if i lived and had a chance to start my life from scratch with it i would start making goals to help children to. become a great after he was born the baby was all in casts. his legs are getting bigger and the earth get too small so we have to order new ones should learn it has raised money for us she helps us to get a leg braces five years after my potentially fatal injuries in a car crash i gave birth to my little missy i think she's my reward for helping all those children who are selling the dollars to buy life for the children. i'm very serious. now i.
2:44 am
welcome back to worlds apart the rear discussing the standoff between russia and the west over ukraine with anja less than director of the center for eurasian russian and east european studies at georgetown university dr stand this week marks . the fifth anniversary of these famous reset and in your book you make a point that every new american administration attempted to improve bilateral ties but i think the silly here in moscow is that what americans really mean by improving ties is essentially having a more. compliant less independent and less assertive russia is there any merit to that well i know that's definitely how many russians see that and we've always see heard that from president putin
2:45 am
a number of times i don't believe that that was the intention in the beginning i am i would say that the reset of president obama. was a somewhat more realistic reset and it certainly did achieve quite a lot in president obama's first term and we can mention the new start nuclear arms control agreement cooperation with russia on more sanctions on iran we can mention a cooperation now in afghanistan looking towards the withdrawal of forces there russia joining the w t o so there were achievements there but i think the brill ation ship became more complicated when mr putin announced his intention to return to the kremlin because that reset was very much built on a personal relationship between president obama and president medvedev well you mentioned some of the strategic achievements of the fourth reset a lot by president obama president that if partially president putin and all those issues they're dealing with should teach. goals for the global security i wonder if
2:46 am
all of that was worth putting on hold is most likely going to happen within the next few months probably years for the sake of endorsing a pro western government in one european country well i would say that the relationship between the us and russia had really deteriorated even before these ukrainian events and i think from the u.s. point of right view the major event was the granting of political asylum to the n.s.a. leaker edward snowden this was something that the white house argued very strenuously against president putin made the choice i understand why he did from his point of view i'm sure was quite a rational choice and so the relationship had been on a downward. anyway but let me just say that despite all of that the u.s. and russia continue and we'll continue to work together on these global issues where they both have an interest in where russia is in
2:47 am
a very important parent but just out of curiosity i mean you are renowned that could damage your work in the state department for a pretty long time and i know that this relationship partnership between russia and the united states has always been pretty challenging if it was always limited but the one american decision makers are considering options considering what position they should take in any given country surely they take into account a sense abilities of their partners and when he deal with ukraine i'm sure they knew well in advance how sensitive that would be for russia and completely discounting russia's interest completely discounting russia's fears and in seeing some of those far right are going ization seeing some of those. radical protesters . taking part in those demonstrations endorsing the unconstitutional change of government all of that from the russian point of view it's simply very difficult to understand why would. endorsing.
2:48 am
this government be outweighing much more and much more important strategic issues that you mentioned are this indeed what we see in ukraine as a result of all of this is crimea in a similar status to say transnistria or across the and south ossetia in other words a region of a country where it functions as an equation i state itself isn't under the control of the central government and that really then makes the sort of post cold war order that more fragile and so i think that's partly has played into this now you could go back and say maybe it shouldn't have been cast as the european union versus. a eurasian union but that's how it came to be cast and so i think the question is are we now seeing the breakdown of what we thought had been achieved in europe after the end of the cold war the dissent you just mentioned the issue of
2:49 am
i'm not seeing or first fissioning annexing crimea or partitioning ukraine given giving our crimea some special status and in your own book you describe russia as a status quo power and russia was pretty content with the way things were going in ukraine whether there was a pro western government of viktor yushchenko and yulia tymoshenko whether there was. the government or you know college though i would describe it as pro russian because i think victor unocal which was really trying to play both sides of the aisle but russia was pretty content with the status quo and what russia was really defending is the status quo whereas in fact it is the united states we decided to revision in a way what was happening in ukraine and. again endorsing the constitutional change of government all that i think would have to get into a discussion about what the status quo is i mean i think think from the russian
2:50 am
point of view the status quo of want wants to defend is a ukraine that that doesn't well a that doesn't choose to go with the your european union and be hopefully from the russian point if you were during the eurasian union or at least if not that remain strictly neutral in the sense of not being in either of those economic bodies and i think both sides now you know understand that the status quo that we had in ukraine prior to the twenty first doesn't exist anymore now. you secretary of state john kerry warned that there will be costs for russia's military presence in ukraine a you also alluded to costs in the first part of the program and what's interesting is that logic here put in as well said today that if. there will be costs that they will affect not only russia but also the united states how far do you think both administrations build their bomb administration and the put in and mr asian are willing to go in punishing each other well i think there's
2:51 am
a limit to how much they can punish each other first of all in the us russian case we don't have much of an economic relationship we're not like the europeans and therefore you know now i think the admin our administration is talking about freezing the potential trade investment treaty which we might have said. during the g eight summit and they're talking about you know not pushing ahead with some business deals we were supposed to have a delegation of russian officials including the energy minister in washington this week talking about energy deals so you know you can suspend those but that doesn't i don't think that imposes a huge costs on russia because as i say we don't have that much of a of an economic relationship so i think that the u.s. has limited leverage speaking about the cost it's clear that a move like that certainly has reputational costs for putin personally and for russia as a country and you know invoking the use of force may be fine for the united.
2:52 am
but i think it's it is an extraordinary thing for russia both domestically and internationally and i think it had. you know the decision to even threaten the use of force was extremely difficult for the russian president and to that effect i want to play something that he said just before this recent crisis broke out let's listen lympics are very important yours is i believe and i would like to be so open the door not only to russia but also to. the hearts of our people. look in seadrill there is nothing to fear he said that just. days before the events and kermie immediately after the olympics and. i wonder how do you reconcile the two his desire to show russia as a more and welcoming nation on one hand and on the other hand giving orders that will clearly give plenty of all munition to russia russia haters in the united
2:53 am
states and in the west well i ask myself the same question and so do many of my colleagues here because in fact the starchy lympics were very successful i know that there was excessive criticism before the games began in the west about a whole range of things but you know the evaluation of the olympics at the end was really pretty positive including in really all of our media here the athletes had a very good experience so then the question is why just so shortly after showing that russia could host a very successful olympic games why then we have this military incursion and what i mean one can only say that presumably it was more important to do this militarily and to show you know the strong fist than it was to continue this you know showing the face of russia that everyone responds responded very positively to so and in some sense a lot of the goodwill that was built up inside she has now dissipated because of what's happened in crimea well doctor send that's not over. made the amount of
2:54 am
goodwill that was created by the olympics in the west that thing. looking at the coverage in the western media it was pretty meager but what i want to add is that the the fact of incursion is still highly disputed by russia russia does. does not recognize western legations over. the incursion of its troops into the ukrainian territory but. coming back to the sound bite that we just played given how much. putin was personally invested into the olympics and how strongly he feels about. showing the new face of fashion doesn't it all to me to suggest that he was cornered that they added the west and sensually left him with no other option isn't that ultimately at the coup or all of the question of why these resets never work that russia has always sort of pushed into the corner and you know. its interest always betrayed or neglected when the united states or the west in general sees
2:55 am
something of benefit for itself and i understand that that is how many russians see the problem with the resets that russia's interests are betrayed and so i think that i think the conclusion one draws from this is that again the u.s. and russia have very different views of what drives the world and really how to evaluate the nature of the relationship now i think you can certainly criticize the united states and i do in my book for not spending enough time and effort to understand the russian perspective and understanding that after the collapse of the soviet union this was a very difficult period russia is a great power and it has been defining its new role in the world and this should have been more you know understanding of that but having said that there you know there's obviously clearly a very different view of when it's legitimate for instance to use military force in the situation as we have it now and what i don't understand let me just. we ran out
2:56 am
of time but let me just say that no military force was you used as a few have you know speaking of democracy i think there is no other party here whose interest would be served better than russia by a democracy being exercised because they are having the the east and the south of ukraine vote in the elections would guarantee the russian interests the best but unfortunately we have to leave it here thank you very much for your time and to our viewers keep the conversation going on our twitter you tube facebook pages and hope to see here again same place same time here on worlds apart.
2:57 am
in two thousand and seven one of those things released by wiki leaks was a secret video recording that actually looked like a video showing two american action political actors opening fire on a dozen people in iraq this is what it means to live in a society images of violence become normal this is what the sense of isolation lack of empathy look like. we try and experience from place only disassociate our own in body and action. to it we also have a sense from certain kinds of. i absolutely am frightened of the potential games desensitize people we know they can because the military uses games gracious as.
2:58 am
cold war it is not simply put it is chilling and chilling exacts a penalty of the killer. people for whom it is defined by the popular media. we'll call it on the roadside the car skidded at breakneck speeds and fell into a ditch and i was thrown out of the cars she was like a broken doll that wasn't a single shoulder piece. left i thought if i lived and had a chance to start my life from scratch what i would start making doles to help children it. could go on right after he was born the baby was all in casts.
2:59 am
his legs are getting bigger and the ortho cyst get too small so we have to order new ones said lorna has raised money for us she helps us to get a leg braces five years after my potentially fatal injuries in a car crash i gave birth to my little niece says i think she's my reward for helping all those children who is selling the dogs to buy life for the children. while some in ukraine want to join the e.u. a recent poll shows a fifty two percent of french workers want to leave the euro and then only thirty four percent of them think the new is a good thing only one of these two groups is right either being an e.u. member is horrible or it's a good thing the fact that we don't know is a market failure broncho a good lead free participants in the e.u. market give us a price signal that we don't know the value of membership. but
3:00 am
somebody. leaked conversation between european diplomats to chair the deadly shootings during the recent riots in kiev carried out by anti-government forces had nothing to do would be ousted president no shots have been fired by very good for society but i'm sure there was some outside force involved in the probably cations and the deaths on both sides it was an organized team of professionals we hear from a special force commander who witnessed the mayhem in clear terms but his division was unarmed and unable to defend. south. and while most going to washington are due to continue to negotiations on the grain with no compromise yes on the highlights. and also later this hour downing street is accused of
3:01 am
a couple run after their arrest the one of british prime minister's closest aides on child porn on it and. the old. world. you're watching on t.v. international live from moscow my name is you know our thanks for joining us and these are the images that shocked the world just a few weeks ago when over eighty people were shot dead during riots in kiev ukraine's government then insisted that police had nothing to do with the killings and now those claims have been independently backed up and the lead conversation with the e.u.'s foreign policy chief as stony as top diplomat says it was the same snipers who targeted both accidents and police that. very day and shows
3:02 am
that people who were killed by snipers from both sides among policemen and people from the streets that they were just changed my purse killing people from both sides roll up here the same same handwriting same type of bullets and it's really disturbing that now the new. new coalition that they don't want to investigate what exactly happened so that carries i was stronger and stronger understanding that behind snipers they were it was not called which but it was somebody from the new coalition. the huge foreign policy chief has refused to comment but the authenticity of the conversation has been confirmed by its stern is foreign minister and even though it can be clearly heard in the recording saying the snipers were hired by someone in ukraine's new coalition diplomats who later insisted this does not implicate the current authorities nevertheless the relations
3:03 am
could help the public understand the true face of those now in power in kiev says international affairs expert. rick. i sincerely hope there's. awareness amongst the people as commentators said it was a year it was mentioned you knew about this they know they've sat on this information for a few days until it was leaked and what actually had to slow it really does not surprise me one bit one of the most powerful and universal measures the spending i think is the regional propaganda and this is used in politics more than you. did so was i was to convince naturally the population of europe here is that americans that ukraine needs to be saved from a democratically elected president. two of our correspondents have experienced
3:04 am
exactly what it feels like to be within a range of sniper fire bullets shot at the windows of a hotel in downtown care well and also a crew was staying chairing a reporting assignment while blood was being spilled on the streets outside on the government collapsed they better quit special forces that have been tasked with ensuring water or disbanded by the new self-proclaimed authorities many of the officers took refuge in crimea and that's why your piece going off with a while their commander. at some point we clearly understood that this was no longer like the peaceful protests of two thousand and four and two thousand and seven this time it was all about provocation not only violent but dirty tactics by the rioters while we were on our own and we didn't even have non-lethal weapons the plan of those who masterminded this was to make the berkut force crumble to be moralized and pressure us to switch sides but that didn't happen and then came the worst the shooting rounds were fired at both sides but as i've already told you
3:05 am
that we didn't have any weapons it was so difficult to understand what was happening but officers just began falling to the ground one by one so would be. unclear people were dying from bullets but again no shots could have been fired by burke could foresee i'm sure there was some outside force a third party involved in the provocation and the deaths on both sides it was an organized team of professionals. meanwhile an unprecedented war was has been intensifying by the day with western politicians and the media using strong language when it comes to russia's role in the ukrainian crisis this is one of the same politicians gave their backing to violent riots in key of less than a month ago she's a good metric and investigate. aggression is the word that you often hear in the u.s. media and from u.s.
3:06 am
officials with regard to russia's presence in ukraine what they fail to show is the aggression. it's very difficult to talk about aggression when you show thousands of people cheering for russia in different parts of ukraine right maybe that's why you don't see this kind of footage on us t.v. very often but if you do see this coverage in which russia's military presence there in itself is presented as an intervention what the and curse and pundits often fail to mention is that we have an agreement under which washes a lot to deploy twenty five thousand troops in ukraine it now has presumably sixteen thousand or so so you get a kick picture where the u.s. presents anything that goes against the interests of those who took power in kiev as an aggression and the revolution there is this peaceful pickover of power. these brave ukrainians took to the streets in order to stand peacefully against tyranny. to the barkers. so instead they were met with strangers who picked
3:07 am
them off one after the other one wonders if the police with molotov cocktails and shooting at them qualifies as standing peacefully according to secretary kerry a huge part of ukraine had no say in the power grab but my don secretary kerry apparently present it as a triumph of democracy. we've heard no comments from him on the leaks conversation between the e.u. foreign affairs chief catherine ashton and historian foreign minister where they talk about evidence that leaders knock unocal which gave orders to snipers and the media on something like this i mean you would expect breaking news everywhere we're talking about evidence that those who are now celebrating victory in kiev may have ordered snipers to shoot both peaceful protesters and the police but no none of that for hours it went on noticed because it doesn't fit into the narrative as it but what the u.s. media was quick to pick up on were unverified reports like this one. robert
3:08 am
serry has agreed to give up his mission here in ukraine he is of course the u.n. special envoy to ukraine he's from the netherlands a father of three and he was taken against his will a short time ago by militia so after a great deal of hysteria the u.n. confirmed that the envoy was not kidnapped but he did come across a group of protesters and the envoy who was apparently escorted by police at the time decided to leave to avoid further tension the general picture that you get is that of the u.s. mainstream media jumping on anything very fighter on verify to present russia as an aggressor without much or any knowledge of what's happening on the ground and u.s. officials wealth they continue their self-righteous tirade while being gauging actual acts of aggression around the world with innocent people dying every day in drone strikes are from violence in countries that were destabilized by the u.s.
3:09 am
in washington i'm going to check on our team. the u.s. secretary of state says that america will be found its military presence in the baltic region close to russia's western border it forms part of washington's response to the situation in ukraine as john kerry pointed out after meeting with russia's foreign minister. brings us more on that well first of all the u.s. secretary of state john kerry had again reiterated that for him to russia had violated the sovereignty of ukraine and that russia had made the wrong choice but russia had maintained from the very start that all its movements in crimea in the region had been within the legalities of the agreement that it had signed and now john kerry also reiterated that dialogue is paramount tried to find a solution to the ukrainian crimean crisis however at the same time the u.s. has announced that it will bolster its military presence in the baltic region as
3:10 am
part of washington's a response to the ukrainian crisis and that the united states currently a provides for f. fifteen still nato is a baltic air policing rotation but they will be sending six or more additional f. fifteen said one k.c. one three five in order to augment this mission and well on a different note the meeting between the two ministers started off with a rather informal and the somewhat like to exchange when that the two of them were sitting on different sides of the table if you. were. very very sure. now it is apparent jibe to carry. him to death be a far right organization in the ukraine now what's next will be more talks of the two had said that the intense discussions will continue in rome. and he spoke to former u.s. presidential kinds of his own pool and he believes america has no right to blame
3:11 am
russia. for us to lecture anybody about violating sovereignty what about the sovereignty of iraq and afghanistan and yemen and north africa and we're constantly being involved pakistan and. missiles we have eight hundred bases around the world we're in one hundred thirty countries we're always involved it seems in somebody else's election and we preach democracy we finally got democracy theoretically you know in egypt there was an election and of course we didn't like the person they elected so we said let's go back to the military. i don't like hypocrisy and for us to preach one thing at the same time behind the scenes we're doing things to stir up trouble for many many different reasons. stay with us as a bring you the latest developments on ukraine here and also international and only the way friends stay in for refusing to leave the house. even

thank. you want to national welcome. downing street is in hot water over allegations that it is attempt to sweep under the rug their arrest of a close aide of the prime minister of a child pornography probe there fishel one of whose role was to advise online porn filters was reportedly warned that police were investigating him hours before he was detained. as has the details his name is patrick rock and he is in fact a veteran conservative party advisor david cameron's deputy chief of staff he's been called cameron spics and he's had what one might call unparalleled access to
3:16 am
access to power over a very long time over the last four decades right there in the heart of government the irony lies in the fact that he's also been closely involved in drawing up government policy on internet pornography filters and this is a man who was rested arrested recently on suspicion of what everybody is calling an offense related to child abuse images so not just pornography but what appears to be child pornography now his arrest happened on february the twelfth and he then resigned but this was all on the quiet downing street appears to have covered it up until it was confronted with it now over the last three weeks no one said anything about this but apart from the prime minister who apparently has known for three weeks he said he was very concerned that the matter should be handled correctly that he didn't want to brief preemptively on a criminal investigation against
3:17 am
a member of his staff but his crew. six who are mainly labor members of parliament opposition say that this raises a number of questions for example what level of security did patrick rock have is that other stuff that we don't know about it's also emerged by the way that rock had previously been accused of sexual harassment which was dealt with by his boss at downing street to a political figure rather than a civil servant they got not very usual so again some sort of oddity going on there the prime minister is being accused of a cover up and his labor critics say that this undermines the entire credibility al effectiveness of the government. the deputy editor of politics adult kodo u.k. alex stinson says the government has some explaining to do to regain public trust voters are baffled by what they're hearing at the moment what seems really strange to them is that three weeks have passed since such a senior advisor close friend of the prime minister david cameron and britain have
3:18 am
passed since he since he left the government left number ten and resigned that is a very odd but what's even stranger here is that this man who now faces allegations that he says child abuse images. was warned by number ten before his arrest and so clearly are lots and lots of questions going around huge suspicion and number ten's got a lot of questions to answer. and on our website for you right now keeping all the bases covered last well maintained its operations near the korean peninsula but they said beijing young that's worrying washington find out what else he does call . after russian scientists have discovered any living thirty thousand year old viruses siberia there are now fears they could be of the deadliest microorganisms

tuesday's incident in the state of new jersey occurred after the company damaged an underground gas line at least one person was killed and seven injured in the blast and subsequent fire that destroyed fifty five units in a housing complex. and the cheerless for al-jazeera facing trial in cairo has said it could never possibly betrays country is one of twenty reporters for the carter based news network that are accused of terrorism by a court but who denies supporting the an old lot of muslim brotherhood party egypt has been in deep political crisis though the army launched a crackdown on the islamists after toppling president mohammed morsi last july. israel is spacing out the controversial construction of settlements on occupied palestinian territory evicting locals and demolishing their homes as a middle east correspondent policy it reports are on their plight
3:22 am
a one palestinian family who refused to give up their life. all more had judges home has been passed down through the generations but now this pressure on him to move tel aviv complaining he's on the wrong side of the wall israel is building to separate the palestinian autonomy from israel how third of all the israeli commander if you brought us inside an electronic fence behind the wall and they're down over the gate so whatever you will do we're not leaving our house and our land i first met all mark two years ago then he told me he felt like he was living in a prison that he refused offers to move i don't want money i want my. two years ago the tractors are busy plowing of fields around his house but because it was on the israeli side of the wall the plan was to surround his home with a five meter high electric fence and he always wife and three children wanted to leave they would need to go through an underground tunnel monitored by security
3:23 am
cameras that would connect them to the other side of the wall and palestine we can you know expecting to find something different i thought we'd see it security cameras state of the art technology but instead what we found is much the same two years have passed and nothing has in the matter thrown me the israelis the occupation country they work slowly the poison are slowly because they do not want to appear for the world as killers and. as you can see when they finish building this tunnel they will close it with a gate the owner of the house will have a key but no one can come and visit them without permission from the army and it should be within specific hours omar is now sick and able to work he doesn't even have the. strange to walk through the tunnel with me in that i can't explain to you how i feel even animals have rights how can a family with three children and living in a cage feel almost vows he will fight for his home until the end policy r.t.

when larger village palestinian autonomy. and coming up next is a special report on the dangerous legacy of nuclear weapons staff. u.s. army specialist albert tell you the third is accused of running a scam in which he helped an afghan trucking company steal huge amounts of fueled by cooking the army books and making it seem as though the fuel had been used when in reality it was diverted they accuse kelly how make it into a twenty five thousand gallons of fuel ventilation to a bureaucratic black hole and four dollars a gallon that is a lot of cash obviously this is wrong but in comparison to the profiteering made off of the war it is a joke that this guy's even going to jail think about the trillions of dollars spent on the post nine eleven wars of luxury tons of big companies have all gotten
3:25 am
huge pieces of the burger pie like retha on with their missiles lockheed martin with their jets and hello burton and blackwater and so on and so on hey when all these big companies milk the system with big contracts during war why should the average grunt take part in alluding to what reason does this kelly guy have to not also try to make a buck off the war it seems like in the world there are people who are often punished not because they steal but because they still far too little while not wearing nice suits but fascist opinion. while some in ukraine want to join the e.u. a recent poll shows that fifty two percent of french workers want to leave the euro and that only thirty four percent of them think the new is a good thing only one of these two groups is right either being an e.u. member is horrible or it's a good thing the fact that we don't know is
3:26 am
a market failure prone so we get lead free participants in the e.u. market give us a price signal that we don't know the value of membership. i am i every sunday morning most of the two hundred inhabitants of the village of gather in a small church. am i was i was. to go to a lack of interest in the seminary and its geographic isolation the parish hasn't had a priest for several years. was was was. was a sunday service has since been run by volunteers from the village i was never into with fervor they pray for their selves but also for peace for the departed family
3:27 am
members and friends that have left them too soon. and to rear their own nose centenarians the average life expectancy is in the sixties the people at work tomorrow are for years and no longer here to talk about what went on in many developed cancer especially thyroid cancer which is characteristic of radioactive contamination. thirty four people have been taken ill making therea one of the most contaminated atolls. this is far from the postcard perfect image there's very little economic activity. coconut trees and the culprit the dried kernel of the coconut shell which is one of the few ways to eke out a living here on the islands. once
3:28 am
a month a boat makes a stop here to collect the corporate. there is no port into rare just a simple landing where basic provisions such as petrol and spare parts can be delivered. at the edge of the village in an old atomic bomb shelter where the population have to take refuge during each atmospheric test the vegetation disappears little by little while the rust slowly raises history. since january nine hundred ninety six when the last of the test was carried out has slowly been forgotten. almost to the point of indifference and then the french commission on atomic energy published a report to which the works are numbers which had never been translated into the local promoter language entered into the local vernacular. the publication of the document couldn't have come at
3:29 am
a worse time just after the focus shima nuclear disaster and the following tsunami . well you know we're in the middle of nature here i really love this place i spend my time here sometimes we clean or collect coconuts. you can't stay here and wait for the tsunami that is coming to morrow we can't but if we hadn't seen on television what happened in japan and he's been everywhere else then we wouldn't be worried but we were shocked. too when we were told to go to her grown but there aren't any high places and. it is flat here there are no mountains there is nothing. if no more ah goes then so do we poor turia. a small loss of contempt and helplessness to forget about a very real fear. and anxiety that pushed the people to ask for
3:30 am
a delegation to be sent tomorrow a visit took place last december. but the new deal we visited more or. you could see that a part of more was under water. frankly for me that worried me i was very angry after what happened. destroyed the city. we had dancers to our questions. after their calculations and. mathematically speaking. they say there are no risks but logically we cannot say that it will leave more twenty meters high and arrive here at less than one meter it's not possible to know according to
3:31 am
theoretical calculations published by the french commission on atomic energy the waves would only reach the edge of the island barely touching the feet of the inhabitants but the locals have a different experience of the terrain when large sum a wave swell and cover parts of to ramp. i saw over there that. is no longer a nat'l it's an article of cement. they have calculated from a very critical point that if it ever collapses in one go. they say there will be waves twenty meters high. and we know that a way of solving even one meter will definitely affect.
3:32 am
it. now i don't really know what's going to happen to it first starts the fact that we are so close maybe if it does fall violently they'll be a big mass of water. and any human will come and destroy us. don't we have discovered something relatively irrational in the minds inhabitants of. when they compare things that aren't really comparable that's an immaterial scale and the amount of energy that is mobilized between a phenomenon like the tidal wave that took place in japan is in where the energy was considerable and the waves are fifteen meters tall and they wind up to two kilometers inland with the phenomenon that could happen if the coral reef were to collapse. a tall here the wave is likely to be between five and ten meters at the base of more. you know wave about two meters with this
3:33 am
swell of around fifty centimeters. in our most dire estimates it would send a wave of about two or three meters to the island of fault involved a climate. that would be enough to submerge around half the battle according to another computer simulation. because of all of variables involved such as wind blows strength and angle of the wave it's impossible to predict an exact scenario so as inhabitants have real reasons for concern. well after our visit to morrow we realize that we have been lied to for a very long time. since the beginning of the atmospheric and underground nuclear tests here the population hasn't believed anything that has been said all written telling us not to worry.
3:34 am
for me personally that all has been shattered comfy seats as if bones have been crushed. morcombe on the. that's how we saw the atl. behind. this road takes us to the highest point of the atl to see when the tsunami would arrive. here we'll most twenty one kilometers from the village of a model. we are close to a horse which is a little canal where the water flows into the ocean and the lagoon we need cover to the sea on it is via the hole that the waves would enter and they would make the levels of the lagoon rise until they completely immersed the village.
3:35 am
and on the offense what are we going to do for our families don't fall for our children for our grandchildren. with this threat possible collapse we just don't know how to prepare for the future for the party for the future. some are already planning to emigrate to tahiti in any case the two hundred inhabitants of this forgotten not all have many unanswered questions and a lot of resentment. see the need it is a legacy that our ancestors left us created the land and our ancestors were able to look after it cherish it maintain it and then with everything that they did as he's often herodotus was transformed into her throne for me an orphan must be said for. the paradise transformed into hell.
3:36 am
this hell that the ministry of defense allowed us to visit is the secret calls murillo are in poland. which was the stage for a hundred and thirty seven underground test between nine hundred seventy five and nine hundred ninety five. taking into account the size of the nuclear blasts but question whether they could have taken place without having any effect on the stability of the atoll. one hundred thirty seven wells between six hundred and twelve hundred meters deep were dug in the lagoon and on the crown of the out all. these images taken in the one nine hundred sixty s.
3:37 am
before the tests show a very regular crown. since the end of the nuclear tests we know that and more there are some zones that have been weakened due to the underground testing in particular. test on the twenty fifth of july one thousand nine hundred seventy nine caused some of the exterior slopes to collapse in the southwest zone and there was a return wave that surprised everybody.
3:38 am
seventeen kilometer protective wall was built after that. because we feared that there would be another collapse. today caused a collapse far less important than the one anticipated. in the northeast we drove to the sector located between a lagoon and fi ocean. the road ends in a cul de sac there is danger beyond this point. so yes it does on your hind this zone there is what we call the callet bank on which there is a deposit of plutonium left by security test which caused a dispersion of radionuclides maybe despite previous cleaning efforts there remains a deposit of a little less than two kilos of plutonium stuck in the rock and the coral reef about by ten meters down. so swimming here is out of the question for at least two
3:39 am
hundred forty thousand guinness the total lifespan of plutonium. in north east of more is. twenty eight underground detonation these were conducted it was recognized in the official documents from the ministry of defense that among these underground detonations seven were not contained in the volcanic zone so it was not verify.
3:40 am
live. in two thousand and ten one of the first things released by wiki leaks was a secret video recording that actually looked like a video showing two american i actually click talk to opening fire on a dozen people in iraq and this is not a means to live in a society images of violence become normal this is what the sense of isolation lack
3:41 am
of empathy look like. when we try and experience to. disassociate. and by any action. activity we also have seen from certain kinds and. i absolutely am frightened of the potential games desensitize people you know they can because the military uses games. of war it is not simply put it is killing and killing exacts a penalty of the killer. people for whom it is defined by the popular media.
3:42 am
around thirty of the wells used for underground detonations were packed to the brim with various waste and radioactive material and then covered with a slab. time has been weathering the concrete slowly eroding the cover of each well. it is the exact opposite of what you are supposed to do with radioactive waste the national agency for radioactive waste said out some rules one of which specifies that waste can't come into contact with water but there it had been put in the middle of the sea. it's completely surrounded by water. is another problem. crossed with fractures which the military claims are natural. opponents argue that they were the result of nuclear tests whatever the cause they have grown larger over time following the unfortunate blast the french commission
3:43 am
on atomic energy. station in one thousand nine hundred. different continental the last thirty years there's been a system in place called tel site that is a remote surveillance of the site and was constructed using several different installation techniques have laterally inclined drilling of cables that are anchored three to four thousand meters in the cliffs that allow for very precise measurements of the movements there are seismic stations and inclinometer is in the wells that allow us to see and measure the internal movements of the rocks and then there are various g.p.s. stations that allow us to measure the movements in relation to each other. with all this increasing surveillance of the earth all our tempting fate. these results are sent by satellite to the atomic energy commission office in paris where they're constantly analyzed throughout the. last surveillance report that was made available about the geologic stability of more was made in two thousand and nine.
3:44 am
we are already in two thousand and twelve and that was the last report we had access to. the two thousand and nine report indicates that out of the twenty devices called exit and some others. were still functioning. we have a wire for example in the france was that is stuck. kit is described in the report that it is stuck and obviously no longer gives any results. no results no readings no information and they go of course it happens that the wires. get caught and then become unstuck but we shouldn't necessarily rely on that and then of course a way can break but the most important thing to remember is not whether this or that sensor is working or not obviously it is better if it still works then lots of security visit is the safety analysis regarding the failure of this or that sense
3:45 am
that allows us to ensure the security of our personnel is always maintained on that . the so we need to do some sort of rejuvenation of some of the devices which is something we are looking into at the moment and we are going to proceed and rejuvenate the material there. i am certain that security and safety is currently maintained thanks to the duplication of information we get from the various senses . renovation and redundancy other two main pillars of mirages geological stability. so it would appear that continued monitoring has been taken care of even if far from perfect. and we've been assured that landslides will be detected days or even weeks before they happen. this is intended to reassure the residents even though procedures do exist for the emergency evacuation
3:46 am
of the twenty or so military personnel present here at the moment but there is another concern for the residents. there are five kilos of plutonium in the at all settlement in the case of a hypothetical disaster this factor remains completely unknown. or is a unique case and opinions vary as to what will become of this potential threat was it. for them or i'm not especially worried about the collapse. simply it is rather what is underneath that worries me. if opens due to a collapse there are radioactive deposits underneath that will come to this. surface that i think will end up contaminating the entire pacific zone. solicitor the scenario will be the side which is exposed next to two rio which is closest to the atoll. asking will it be the other side the money matters because
3:47 am
the wave will act differently depending on which side it comes from if the wave goes further inland then the polluted material will be moved as it goes on that is to say that the radioactive material will sink to the bottom tony m is rather heavy radioactive waste and so it sinks will it be aspirated by the floor and then brought back by the reflux and dispersed so we really need an explanation about which scenario is the most realistic and then once the risk is known we can invest in prepare ourselves and then inform the population. this is all very fine but to have a discussion on a level playing field everyone must have access to the same sources of information on the one hand the army has opened its doors allowing us to film and answering our questions but on the other there is still the natural tendency to cover up.
3:48 am
in france there is always this desire to keep everything secret that concerns defense. only the highest authorities with the highest clearance may have access to this information on a form a show we must understand but for that to happen we need to have access to the source of the information this part is absolutely necessary yes but on july the first two thousand and eight during a sleepy summer and under the veil of indifference the law was passed with serious consequences for access to military archives the very principle of the in communicate the ability of certain archives going on. to be considered in the most restrictive way that is to say only when absolutely necessary from this double point of view the solution that you propose during the first reading of this text a delay of a hundred years and a definition more explicit resolve the concerned archives archives will only be
3:49 am
incommunicable if they concern the information that would allow the conception fabrication utilization localization of weapons of mass destruction by the nuclear biological chemical or bacterial and not on our commitment is to not use the archives to find out how to make a salad to put it simply i couldn't care less. about how to make a bomb but we simply want access to the information they have about the environment and the health of. mizuno it is time to listen to the voice of the house on the law presented who is for who is against the law is adopted minister it is your turn to speak but i think that the culture of military secrets is really very poisonous especially concerning the health risks and the risks to the environment was it as in the united states a commission exists which has been allowed access to these military archives for all these years where we can find all the information linked to the tests but
3:50 am
doesn't contain the information about type of nuclear weapon that we wonder how to make such and such weapons work so that is not the goal of our involvement. which was initiated at that time there's a lot of. here for thousands of polling museums who worked in. profited from the windfall they received from mainland france they did so in secret it's difficult for them to keep the memories alive the veterans are gone taking their memories and their testimonies with them history is starting to unravel and the younger generation has different worries and interests. there have never been talks between the french authorities and the local population over the thirty years of pollen easy as atomic saga a large misunderstanding grew out of this and fostered the rift and bad feelings surrounding the top secret at all. when the territory was forced to
3:51 am
concede in one thousand nine hundred four it had been promised that morrow and fund would be given back to its people once the tests and finished. the last test took place in january nine hundred ninety six and since then nothing had changed until january twenty twelfth on the relay in two thousand and five the investigation commission of the assembly of french polynesia asked the state to recognize the two types of consequences clean up the atolls and return them to their native population at the end of the plenary session on this monday the sixteenth of january just a few days ago the assembly of french polynesia gave a favorable opinion with a large majority with regards to the presentation of the war it is then a big question that i asked the senate today and i asked them to happily follow me in the spirit of the retrocession of the two atolls we must give these to toss back . it is thanks to us that france became
3:52 am
a powerful international figure thanks to our land on exist we exist and these islands exist parents lived here and i think france owes the owners of more or a lot of the property that the. german i put this proposition to a vote who is in favor of adopting this law. who is against the proposition is therefore adopted as a law. it's only a small win for the senator only the first step in a long legislative procedure which will see the bill presented to the national assembly. and while parliament did confirm the return of the land the much larger problem still remains that the one hundred seventy five aerial and underground tests in morocco have definitively condemned the at all of the big secret. i don't want the land
3:53 am
back now it's poisoned. so if i don't want it back i simply want france to recognize the property rights of these islands this which are ours because we are the descendants of those who own them should. there cannot be uncontrolled human activity for a very long term. and whatever happens it can. change whatever is the destiny of the. next place whether we continue the discussion or stop talking about it altogether to the truth of that statement well much change. and nothing can change that. and i stop there cannot be any uncontrolled human activity and this is a tour for the moment and it is the price. to be paid by sin
3:54 am
a point. does france left us with now. nothing to they have left us with nothing but their poisons in this. general de gaulle's said that the nuclear terror certain war are serve the interests of peace is our fear to bring peace to the ward. pretty crazy what this peace brought with it will be on board the.
