international's good to have you with us. after months of. eastern ukraine is devastated schools hospitals apartment blocks and houses are either badly damaged or completely destroyed but as government forces drive troops away people are getting the chance to come out of hiding and start rebuilding what's been wrecked. votes are you proceeded to vote for what most of the board you voted out were heard even though there was a future not just to the bridge every big eight years that we didn't you might hear it but also that you most of them should soon know what did you burn baby burn. while local fighters are currently carrying out a military operation to protect the population paula slayer has the details well in
the past few days the anti-government forces have made significant gains in eastern ukraine they managing to push the ukrainian army back from previously held positions and they've managed to get a council they haven't been able to reach for weeks now 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 devising in this part of the country has been ongoing for the better part of five months and what we witnessing now is certainly the tide turning in the town of ill advised the army was forced to lay down weapons they've also surrounded the port city of mario pool and blocked off always out of the city but there is as far as we understand no intention to either storm all raid the city at this stage this comes as the humanitarian situation on the ground for mains 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 can't forget or that you even heard from that when you first fell in the open going forward so who knew what that was to. follow you here the girl who you knew the article. you still believe. this is a soviet era bomb shelter builds during the cold war but until now it hadn't been
used. because those. clashes are also intensifying around lugansk kiev goal is to surround the city and cut off the anti-government forces from their bases people from the embattled areas surrounding the guns are among those seeking refuge from the fierce fighting which has overwhelmed their homes by the you're heading up on the. block. did you get a studio to ship the ocean or just russians last march a clash of radius of the moon within the confidence when. and for thought that a missional when the because family celebrate the birthday of one of the younger members the also good thing is that they have finally found some kind of safety and it will not. give me a good a stereo it is too worth putting it on one with both of the equipment
a lot of people i said thank you out of this little how did she sound. in a letter she can't andree used to love playing war like old boys of his age questionable a lot but not anymore. andry shows me what he found in their back yard after another shelling these tiny and lethal metal guards are sprayed from so-called flechette shells which are internationally banned gives large scale military operation here in eastern ukraine has lost almost five months so far as more destruction is caused and the casualties rise people's pain feeds the endor and many fear when the guns fall silent he queen will not be able to overcome the consequences of what has happened here. in eastern ukraine.
to government leaders and they don't yes can new guns grecians if set out by a position on a stop listening ties with kiev in the conditions that need to be met them all must story at all to call. in iraq kurdish forces are advancing on jihadists from the islamic state that have occupied the northwest of the country with the help of u.s.'s strikes and sea of volunteers they've managed to take over a militant stronghold in the interior sunni a fight is pretty well western leaders are raising the alarm of a possible to how does the talks on european under american soil this is from to the wider debate over the west taking on the islamic state of israel a culture of the looks of 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 one hundred radicalize germans are fighting. terrorists seize control over an area to create a beast with a reign of terror and to retreat rather 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 p k k it's 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 arming 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 by a suspected britons to hardness and revelations that one of these lawmakers states he financier's was the director of a 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 are clear in principle 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 baton 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
confiscating passports using the war. so they've been doing this exact measure they're talking about for an extended period of time already in many many cases but they we hash here and they bring out is now legislation so that they can look like they're being proactive against the isis issue when really they're just trying failed policies world leaders seemed caught off guard by increasingly militarized and the well funded islamic state jihad this course stealing a march through iraq and syria while abroad politicians should nervously to avoid sending their soldiers back into the middle east but delays that impreciseness could ignite the time bomb element bring the terrorists to them marina cost of other ports or from london for it see. where the flow of jihadi volunteers from the e.u. has sparked some radical ideas from western officials the mayor of london has even proposed labeling anyone who travels to iraq in syria without telling the
authorities as a terrorist until they prove their innocence the idea found little support with more than half of those surveyed saying no to the plan political and social commentator mohammedans are believes only a change in foreign policy will help matters. firstly the fact that we have this 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 you how do you think the problem has been that our policy on counter radicalization counter extremism has sensibly failed failed 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 than an intellectual or spiritual jihad overseas so we had to have
a domestic policy which you centered around the home office which is mired in control of c. you're watching all the international more news coming your way after a short break. differently here in syria now many of the members of congress of both parties who have gone to syria in recent months has said they believe he's a reformer the pre-clear mr president the senate which is diddy's told him for him to go. to stability and peace to syria is going to be the subject of. illegal. they all told me my language as well but i will only react to situations i have read the reports to let you know what is the know i will leave them to the state department
to comment on your latter point of the month to say it is please or carry out a car is on the docket no god there they go no more weasel words when you need a direct question and the prepared for a change when you have to run should be ready for a battle freedom of speech and down to freedom to christ's. we think of why we think there are good. sand beaches. coconut palms gently swaying in the ocean breeze. and frank why he has a deep dark little secret a secret the u.s. government would like you to know about. through our labor it's. the ball i did earlier succeeded ok good all we'll get in there is.
slips a bit. of a bit of a. israel's military campaigns against hamas have left palestinian territory devastated this is the result of the most recent assault thousands of houses wiped out in weeks of armed conflict you can see that whatever the land was green is now any shell craters and sand an assessment puts the cost of rebuilding and over six billion dollars the un and a number of international organizations have published the latest figures operation protective claimed the lives of more than two thousand palestinians including women and children israel itself lost seventy two people most of them were soldiers
seventeen thousand houses were destroyed or badly damaged in the recent campaign where seventy five thousand homes in needed to cover the total housing deficit disaster relief organization linked to the u.n. says it will take more than twenty years to rebuild the infrastructure in that our host nation now i asked british m.p. george galloway who he believes is to blame for recent events i think that the israeli government is the only responsible side for the recent violence that we've seen what about hamas did they bear responsibility for the violence. well the palestinian resistance has for almost seventy years being trying to restore their country to the map it was wiped off the map and the palestinian people scattered to the four corners of the earth no nobody would accept you wouldn't accept my country wouldn't accept it if foreigners come and steal your country and wipe off the map and to go out and drive you out you're going to struggle to return and it is the
illegal and moral right of the palestinian people to resist the occupation of the country. well this is the first interview george galloway gave after being attacked in london apparently for his comments on israel he shared that story with anita i was in the street around seven thirty seven thirty five in the evening it was broad daylight out of nowhere dressed in israel defense force short complete with the logo came a man charging up me cursing and swearing and shouting. support for israel and opposition to my views on israel and then a torrent of punches and kicks the man was a pro israel fanatic his book morning. his
words that he would like to cut my throat. amount of says it like to cut your throat and then dresses for the occasional an israel defense force. on the street near where you live has probably a serious intention to do you harm. and you can watch in the now for the latest stories that you will not find in the mainstream media the show airs monday to friday here on r.t. international. you are known as a man's best friend dogs have always accompanied us on our quests in germany soviet era they were even used to pave the way to the stars soviet scientists tested the effects of low gravity and high speed launches on the animals now one of their spacesuits is up for auction at an estimated value of eight thousand euros it's believed to have been used by bell constrain the first space dogs to return to
earth safely he looks back at the history of the first space pops. they're world famous for going to space and back before humans could ever start exploring the cosmos in one thousand nine hundred sixty two strays. made space history by spending over twenty five hours in orbit and making it back home alive the first creatures ever sent outside the earth's atmosphere and for such a long time to be for them though dozens of dogs took part in soviet spaceflight experiments and i can tell you without them the u.s.s.r. would have never been able to send the first man into orbit pioneering which is there and done for instance became the first to reach the upper levels of the earth's atmosphere but they're a twenty minute flight was rough extreme turbulence and zero gravity but they landed safely and alive wasn't so lucky the vehicle decompressed and the animals suffocated but it's mainly because of that incident that space suits were introduced and that led to the first canine spacewalk lisa became the first live
animal ever to float outside a craft in a spacesuit she came back alive and well and gave birth to some healthy puppies to most because trip had an extra twist her landing pad got lost in a storm scientists took two days to find it because a herdsman straw colored parachute that dog was ok though but the breakthrough in space came with like her mission is also probably the saddest she became the first ever animal to get into orbit but stressed and overheating meant she died a few hours into the flight but let me tell you the scientists involved including the head of the soviet space program took these dogs to heart and cherish them as spent so it was a brief adventure for some of the man's best friends led to some giant leaps for mankind. more stories of pools on all websites including watching this video you might think an a.t.m. banks being built on a but have no fear because it's the construction of
a brand new headquarters for u.s. tech giants head online to. the space age building. that had been missing for days is located by satellites off the coast of america go online to find out why the vessel with its hundred million dollars has been avoiding detection it's all a web site called. the sea. search string. and i think picture. on our recorders. in pakistan's capital turmoil has broken out as thousands of people marched on
government buildings followed two weeks of mass opposition rallies across the country the opposition accuse the prime minister nawaz sharif of rigging last year's general election and demanding that he step down he spoke to an expert on pakistan about what's behind the unrest it's quite unfortunate to see that due to reputed military intervention bureaucratic structure and due to corruption in the political and civil and military bureaucracy. doing pretty good stringent development flourish and that has actually we couldn't do pretty practice is what we see in the recent days that is actually a manifestation of people's lack of confidence into pretty practice is a new really a recently more recently elected government has has been put into statistics situation which would actually do any good to the democratic situation to think that this is in pakistan rather me if as the stated military intervention so yes
there are reason warning sign did you use a lot of concern to. the government to be able to stick. to some other world headlines now starting in somalia where the u.s. military has carried out a counterterrorism operation against al shabaab militants the pentagon statement gave no further details about the clandestine operation and didn't say if it was successful local media report suspected u.s. drone fired missiles near the port city of by the way a militant stronghold african and somali forces have again several towns this year but the al qaeda linked groups still hold large areas of the country. star for liberia's largest hospital have gone on strike the money out of paying proper equipment to deal with. nurses are refusing to return to work until they're supplied with protective suits health workers also protested in c.s. . meanwhile a suspected case was reported in sweden the first case of the deadly virus was two

no. history. of the situation. which will. get you to new nature that it will. now if you find yourself heading to berlin anytime soon you might want to travel light or get a helping hand to carry your luggage because locals in the german capital are demanding a ban on the use of suitcases with wheels so in this kind of baggage rubs the mostly artie's pita all over has the story. every year thousands of tourists flock here to the german capital the billions reputation as a cool destination for
a city break has seen those numbers increase along with the tourists comes the luggage and one type of luggage in particular is causing consternation and some neighborhoods suitcases on wheels combined with cobbled streets has resulted in local residents complaining about the noise late at night and early in the morning in fact there's been so many complaints that the mayor of the region of berlin has actually said the bag should be banned right that's not something the tourists themselves particularly agree with. i cannot carry heavy items and it would be impossible for me to travel with a twenty kilograms suitcase without. my my opinion it's stupid idea but i don't know all the people who live in quotes they have another opinion and so it's their decision but i think it wants to go through but. i think it's an overreaction it would make no sense to suggest quite a wheels it's
a piece of the streets with this move the surface perhaps other possibilities should be looked at first before making this long at times tempers of flared over this issue we've seen some graffiti around the city that say things like you are not and even as far as the tourists bus whether they like them or not needs the tourism industry and invariably those tourists come with suitcases that will have wheels ph all over r.t. germany. coming up next naughty international the what so many consider i remember the last century chicago appears to be thriving once again surely we report on the gun was the iconic us says he's there with us.
