are you watching r t international coming to you live from moscow. and it's good to have you with us after months of an army offensive eastern ukraine looks devastated schools hospitals apartment blocks and houses are either badly damaged or completely destroyed but as anti government forces drive troops away people are getting the chance to come out of hiding and start rebuilding what's been wrecked. you didn't vote. for it either because. even though there are some who says that this is the example you used to revisit yes. but even if. well local fighters are currently carrying out a military operation to protect the population let's take a look at how it is shaping up or lugansk and don yes cretins which you can see
here are the focus of walk here of course it's anti terror operation now anti-government forces used to control this territory but had to retreat closer to the regional capitals they now say that this area in orange is under their control and they're driving the army out in the past few days fighters managed to seize around a dozen towns the ukrainian army is surrounded in several locations as you can see here as well now the latest incident in the latest is in the hundreds of soldiers were encircled but are allowed to leave for humanitarian corridors right now and the government forces are closing in on the port city of mariupol which they down here you can see they say that they've blocked all the roads leading in and out of the city however no offensive has been planned maria for national reports on what the civilian population endured during care of the assault what many feared could happen is happening the constant bombardment of the guns has destroyed buildings
and 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 but i don't think anybody here or that you even heard from the pointer tell anything going forward don't loom given what that was too. early you see here in the early morning in the article. you still believe. this is a soviet era bomb shelter built during the cold war but until now it hadn't been used . the accountability. clashes a role so intensifying around lugansk kiev's 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 offending up on the. grounds good luck in the summer to british trio to ship the ocean last march accession of areas of the moon within the confidence when la doesn't need for thought but a mission or when the because family celebrate the birthday one of the younger members they also give thanks that they have finally found some kind of safety that will not mock each it was over nearly. did me good a stereo it is two words printed on one with both of the liquid in the water before i said thank you out of this little how did she sound. enough to shake you andree used to love playing war like old boys of his age questionable a lot but not anymore. andrey 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 ukraine will not be able to overcome the consequences of what has happened here refinishing r.t. in eastern ukraine. two government leaders in the don't yet in the guns regions have settled their position on a stablish in ties with the conditions that need to be met to get more on the story at r.t. dot com. in iraq kurdish forces are advancing on jihadists from the islamic state of occupied the northwest of the country with the help of
u.s. airstrikes and she volunteers they've managed to take over a militant stronghold between two senior fighters meanwhile western leaders are raising the alarm over possible jihadist attacks on european and american soil this is calm today why do debate over the west taking on the islamic states that is really a culture of a look at some of the proposed solution lies. as more countries admit they're up against an abstract threats from international flights or is joining islamic states 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 product alights germans are fighting many dumb one thousand and ten listening to many terrorists seize control over an area to create it based with a reign of terror and to retreat rather fanatics this creates a danger for us 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 the p.k. is 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 the main . 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 by a suspected this and revelations that one of these lawmakers 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'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 passwords from door nationalists and battle 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 two thousand and fourteen the reason may started confiscating possibles 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 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 shift nervously to avoid sending their soldiers back into the middle east but delays and decisiveness could ignite the time bomb doesn't bring the terrorist. cost of our reporter from london for artsy. well 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 and syria. now telling your thirty's as a terrorist until they prove their innocence the idea found little support however with more than half of those surveyed saying no to the plan political and social commentator muhammadan believes only a change in foreign policy will help matters 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 you have overseas so we have the mill it have a domestic policy which is centered around the home office which is mired in controversy. coming up we'll look at where the public rage in pakistan might see the country's pm ousted stay with us.
there's a different leader 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 to pre-clear mr president the senate which is diddy's time for him to go . to school be at least to serve you news from the most obvious step down. please. help 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 that it is a carryin a car is on the docket no god there they go no more weasel words when you made a direct question do you prepared for a change when you throw
a punch be ready for a. print of a speech and a little down to freedom to christ's. why but it's a political issue in this country any time that somebody race or see a true gun control if we get attacked by somebody. skirmish with some sort of a person twenty five or thirty years of a person they don't see themselves living beyond these young people saying that they will not live past twenty or thirty years old victim of the swan feel good or for bad stuff. you don't know what the path terror will be walking behind or. you come to. make. several more. cargo dealing with get. really done.
with economic ups and downs in the final months day the longer the deal sank i and the rest of the flight so you meet casey will be every week on. on marriage and the financial world. has to moments cannot stop exuberance only takes no demand for credit not going to get any benefit in life there are. so.
israel's military campaigns against hamas have left the palestinian territory shattered now this is the result of the most recent aselton thousands of houses wiped out in weeks of armed conflict you can see that wherever the land was one screen is now only shell craters and sand an assessment of the cost of rebuilding and over six billion dollars well the u.n. out a number of international organizations have published the latest figures operation protective edge 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 seventy five thousand homes and 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 is in the now host and he said now i asked british m.p. george galloway who he believes is to blame for events in recent months i think
that the israeli government is the only responsible side for the recent violence that we've seen what about how 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. now that was the first interview that george galloway gave after being attacked in london apparently for his comments on israel he said that story with a nice. 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 shirt complete with the logo. came. up me cursing and swearing and shouting. support for israel and opposition to my views on israel and then. punches and kicks. was a pro israel fanatic. his facebook morning. and his words he would like to cut my throat. a man who says he'd like to cut your throat and then dresses for the occasion in an israel defense force. on the street near where you live has probably a serious intention to do you harm. you can watch it for the latest stories that
you will not find in the mainstream media the show has monday to friday here on r.t. international. now known as man's best friend dogs have always accompanied us on our quests and during the 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 had an estimated value of eight thousand euro it's believed to have been used by bell the first bank stocks to return safely to earth he now looks back at the history of the first space pops. their world famous for going to space and back before humans could ever start exploring the cosmos in one thousand nine hundred sixty three. made space history by spending over twenty five hours in orbit and making it back home alive the first creatures ever. 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 moshe's trip had an extra twist her landing pad got lost in a storm scientists took two days to find it because a herdsman stall her colored parachute dog was ok 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 spence so it was a brief adventure for some of the man's best friends led to some giant leaps for mankind. i'm staying with something that such just out of this world flushing this video you might think it's an alien base being built on earth but to have an affair is the construction of a brand new had courses for us tech giants i don't lie and who are into the space age building. to cut a short time that i've been missing for days is located by satellites off the coast of america online to find out why the vessel with its one hundred million dollars guy has been avoiding detection.
to see. first straight shooters and i think what you're. on our reporters. on instagram. in pakistan's capital turmoil has broken out as thousands of people marched on gov buildings to fall is 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 the man that he steps down we spoke to an expert on pakistan about what were highly 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 receive. democratic institutions cleaned up and flourish and that has actually weakened to pretty practices what we see in the recent days that is actually a manifestation of people's lack of confidence in democratic practices and a newly a recently more recently elected government has has been put into statistics situation which would actually do any good to the democratic situation to predict that this is in pakistan rather made fast the stated military intervention so yes there are easily warning signs there didn't use a lot of concern about how long the government would be able to sustain. this and more world news 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 reports suggest u.s. drones five missiles near minutes of strongholds of african and somali forces have regained several towns this year the al qaeda linked groups still hold large areas of the country. star for liberia's largest hospital have gone on strike demanding better pay and truck i put men to deal with the polar outbreak nurses are refusing to return to work until they're supplied with protective suits health workers also protesting in sierra leone in guinea meanwhile a suspected. cases reported in sweden the first case of the deadly virus was confirmed in senegal last week almost fifteen hundred deaths have been recorded since the outbreak across west africa. memorial services continue in beslan in southern russia marking ten years since a terrorist attack on a school there throughout the night candles were lit in remembrance of the more than three hundred victims most of them children and their mothers on tuesday an exhibition devoted to the tragedies planned to take place on the first of september
two thousand and four hundred thousand people were taken hostage by chechen militants and held captive for three days deprived of food and water. bringing more coverage of the memorial events throughout the day also i spoke to the only terrorist to have survived the best damn atrocity you can hear what he had to say later today here on r.t. international. all of this is what is called a. new. initiative . which is live on c.n.n. we're going to figure out what in the there's an issue to go to much of the situation. most unusual. in nature that it will.
now if you find yourself heading to berlin and these i'm saying 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 saying this kind of baggage rubs the move sleep peeta all about explains. every year thousands of tourists flock here to the german capital but billions reputation as a cool destination for a city break is seen those numbers increase along with the tourists comes the luggage and one type of luggage in particular is causing consternation in some of the 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 bombed out 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 wheels my my opinion it's stupid idea but i don't know all the people who live in quotes probably have another opinion and so it's their decision but i think one should go through but. i think it's an overreaction it would make no sense to suggest quiet so we have paved the streets with this new the surface perhaps other possibilities should be looked at first before making this long at times tempers 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 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 cause or explain how the advance of islamic state militants
in iraq and syria is affecting global finances stay with aunty international. on marriage and the financial world. series developments cannot stop it it actually takes no demand for credit not going to get any benefit in life there are good and there are fox. c.b.s. this is are you see it more than the propaganda or film that is the state sponsored russia today program just worth five sabean all right i don't think analyze the spread there is just ridiculous non answer to my question. john is not be
