well local fighters are currently carrying out a military operation to protect the population that suffer greatly from the assault let's get more now from martin fuller slayer who is in a john yes paula what gains have the government forces made. well the anti-government forces are gradually driving away the ukrainian army from its previously held positions and from occupied towns and cities in the lugansk and in its regions if you look at this map of the areas that are colored in orange are the areas that are now in the hands of the anti government forces they've also surrounded the port city of mario paul and blocked off always out of the city but there is as far as we understand no intention to either storm or raid the city at this stage this comes as the humanitarian situation on the ground from ames stock indeed humanitarian aid that has been supplied by russia is being handed out in towns and cities across the east of this country at the same time the anti government forces are organizing special trucks to ferry the aid to some of the
hardest hit locations this comes as people still hide inside their basements my colleague maria for national went to find out just how people are coping. what many feared could happen happening the constant bombardment of the guns has destroyed buildings empty street and populated basements. every time we visit we find more people sheltering underground. a cold and humid room three meters down is the only place these people feel safe that you know you're going to get or that you eat right from the point you're telling the family of that you're not going to give what that buckley's to. you here in the world would we need to have. to stay here and you know. this is a soviet era bomb shelter built during the cold war but until now it hadn't been
used. because those. clashes are also intensifying around the guns goal is to surround the city and to cut off the anti government forces from their bases when we traveled with the russian humanitarian convoy to lugansk we were forced to take an alternative route to avoid the fighting there is almost always a line of refugees at the border people from the embattled areas surrounding lugansk are among those seeking refuge from the fierce fighting which has overwhelmed their homes by the you're heading up on to. your flock. to jupiter studio to ship the ocean or a new way spots a new bomber subtle commission where years out of a little go again appears as good or more damage to hard to get used not on your

so-called flesh at shells internationally banned definitely at the building just because of the film a little bit of june fifth or o'brien's god neighborhood was known as the shed the logical believe it's easy to guess but boy it also worry a lot of you left him still trying to stable a new typically misty deal that could possibly reach him if. he is large scale military operation here in eastern ukraine has lost almost five months so far as more destruction of schools and the casualties rising people's pain feeds the anger and many fear could be grounds for silent the plane will not be able to overcome the consequences of what you just can't hear later refinishing r.t. in eastern ukraine. well on to government leaders in the don't yet have set out
their position on a stubborn ties with kiev on the conditions that need to be met you can get more on the story on our website r.t. dot com. in iraq kurdish forces are advancing on the hardest from the islamic state that have occupied the northwest of the country with the help of u.s. airstrikes on shia volunteers they've managed to take over a militant stronghold coming to senior fighters in the western leaders are raising . possible jihadist attacks on european and american soil this is from today why do debate over the west taking on the islamic state. which is some of the proposed solutions. as more countries admit they're up against an abstract threats from international fighters join an islamic state it's more important than ever to find a common solution i don't want to put the cart before the horse we don't have a strategy yet there's no point in me asking for. action on the part of congress
before i know exactly what it is that is going to be required for us to get the job . america might not know what to do gets but germany seems to have an idea to spend seventy million euros arming kurdish forces to deter islamic state militants in iraq where it's believed some four hundred radicalize germans are fighting. among terrorists seize control over an area to create a base for their reign of terror and to retreat try the fanatics this creates a dangerous it affects our security interests but is getting even more involved a viable way forward i'm not sure if the kurds especially if there are influences from the p.k. k p k k is known to be a terrorist organization on the terrorists for both the european union and for the united states if the p.k. is receiving weapons from the germans then i think we are about to repeat a major mistake of being once again the wrong side here in the u.k.
fears have been growing since soldier lee rigby was slaughtered in london now with the beheading of an american journalist suspected. and revelations that one of these lawmakers states he financier's was the director of the muslim faith school in the city of birmingham brought so want to feel safe and they want the government to take drastic measures it is apparent that people who declare allegiance elsewhere. able to return to the united kingdom and pose a threat to our national security we're clear in principle that what we need is a targeted discretionary power to allow us to exclude british nationals from the u.k. cameron spline tearing up passports from door nationals and bannan fighters from returning home from foreign conflicts according to you gov two thirds of british people support taking away citizenship from known radicals although it's claimed that hasn't worked before in april two thousand and fourteen the reason may started

commentator mohammedans are bullies only a change of foreign policy will help matters. firstly the fact that we have the. return of control orders and i think but before you can we get to that stage people are wondering how when somebody is returning from syria or from the middle east are we going to assess whether they've been involved in any kind of radicalization any kind of terrorism or have in fact been fighting as to how do you think the problem has been that our. policy on counter radicalization counter extremism has sensibly failed i mean if fails to intercept the failed around seven seven is continued to fail seeing people who are under surveillance going overseas to fight as they see it in an ideological in an internet for spiritual jihad overseas so we've had to have a domestic policy which is centered around the home office which is my it's in control of see it watching r t international we've got more news coming your way after
