there it's good to have a company with international. now after weeks and even months in hiding shellshocked civilians in east ukraine are coming out of their shelters at least in town and no longer targeted by the military swathes of the east have been devastated by fighting but some there now have the chance to rebuild what's been destroyed. first you first if you will still vote for it is very very crazy even if there are suspicions that this is a true w.b. usually very much. more so than most of them should soon it would. have been. a resistance fighter is now in the middle of a counterattack that has significantly reshaped the front lines putting kiev and
its troops on the back foot so let's take a look now at how the battle lines have shifted began and the genetic reasons regions seen here are the focus of what kiev calls his anti terror operation and the government forces used to control this strike region of the map here but retreated to regroup closer to the regional capital towards fighters now say that this area here in orange is under their control and that they've essentially driven the army out in the past few days they have managed to seize around a dozen towns ukrainian army is surrounded in several locations the circles you can see here well in all thousands of soldiers are reportedly encircled but many have been allowed to leave through humanitarian corridors right now anti government forces are closing in on the port city of mariupol down here they say that they've blocked all the roads leading in and out of the city there are no offensive is planned. reports on what the civilian population is going through during here to
solve what many feared could happen each happening in the constant bombardment of lugansk 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 hear or that you even heard from government your fellow anything like the indian one that was likely to. follow you here in the early morning in the are. you still believe. this is a soviet era bomb shelter builds during the cold war but until now it hadn't been used. because of those.
clashes a row so intensifying around the guns go east to surround the city and cut off the end to government forces from their bases people from the embattled areas surrounding the ganske are among those seeking refuge from the fierce fighting which has overwhelmed their homes by the offending the. flock. to british trio to shipped over. last march accession of weariness with a move within the consequence when. for thought that a mission when the but of course family celebrate the birthday one of the younger members the also good thing is that they have finally found some kind of safety and that will not was what. did me good at studio it is two words put it on one with both of the equation in order for i said thank you all just a little how did she sound. in the not to shake it 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 little metal guards are sprayed from so-called flechette shells which are internationally banned gives large scale military operation here in eastern ukraine has lasted 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. r.t. in eastern ukraine where the rising casualty count in the ukrainian military has prompted another protest in kiev by the mothers of drafted soldiers. hundreds descended on the parliament demanding their sons fathers in president
return home they also called for an end to what they see as rampant corruption and incompetence in the military and inside the parliament one deputy also voiced her discontent but risk quickly science. lives got to her personal life out of me a better beat by beat mirror image that i got to be stupid not the lies that got out i think in my book i was just a matter which she did she really put up a new pair but i walk right through the unit she scored at that you would see that in a story me said without a good. luck really not about started for the green screen i mean you. meanwhile human rights watch says three hundred civilians have died in the ganske since may as a result of indiscriminate bombings such as as on these apartment blocks the group blames both kiev's military and government forces for carrying out what it describes as unlawful attacks indiscriminate attacks are a violation of international law. antigovernment leaders in the nets and lugansk regions have said that their position on establishing ties with kiev and the
conditions that need to be met so you can get the details on that at r.t. dot com. i could fighters in iraq are reclaiming key territory from islamic state extremists in the northwest of iraq aided by u.s. airstrikes and volunteer fighters they've managed to seize a militant stronghold killing two senior radicals in the offensive meanwhile the jihadist terror threat has sent shock waves through the western world sparking a heated debate over how europe and the u.s. should deal with the islamic state parties myrna coursera looks at some of the proposals. 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 is 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 done. 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 by the government there and didn't. terrorists seize control over an area to create a base for their reign of terror and to retreat try the 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 of the kurds especially if there are influences from the p.k. k p k's known to be a terrorist organization p.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. and made the 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 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 are clear in principle that what we need is a targeted discretion 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 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 wee and they bring out is now in legislation so 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 to harvest who are stealing a march and syria while abroad politicians shift nervously to avoid sending their soldiers back into the middle east but delays and in the size of this could ignite the time bomb that will bring the terrorists to them marina cost of a reporter from london for artsy. some politicians have gone further than others when it comes to suggesting ways of dealing with the tide of westerners joining the islamic states jihad is an example of the mayor of london went as far as proposing that anyone who travels to iraq and syria without telling the authorities be
labeled a terrorist until they prove their innocence the idea has found support the head of the muslim public affairs committee in the u.k. believes british foreign policies have led to such radicalization seems in that region are no longer willing to accept what they think is an unjust order by bombing them into submission by. driving them or kidnapping them or sending them to secret prisons around the world by torturing them their only reinforces that the belief within the muslim world that something is wrong and nothing is going to stop these guys unless as these groups like liason are saying unless you take up on this so why are we giving you more of the same something needs to change and that is we need to adjust our foreign policy make it ethical and we teach young muslims we're going to deal with the british problem here but they can make a change to that foreign policy by being involved in this system. without say off
the bright we'll tell you about the sheer scale of the task ahead for the people of gaza and the wake of the israeli offensive that's coming up in a couple of minutes. differently here in syria now many of the members of congress of both parties who have gone to syria in recent months have said they believe he's a reformer 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 most obvious step down. please. they all told me my language as well but i will only react to situations as i have read the reports so i'm likely to put the no i will leave them to the state department
to comment on your latter point of the month to say to mr kerry you have a car is on a dog you know god i. hope they do no more weasel words when you have a direct question be prepared for a change when you run should be ready for a. critical speech and a little bit on the freedom to cross. looking on people the way it took them a piece from. egypt to see that it is some of these little small closely it seems to be. the first thing we did this for the most logical and beneath got them years in the
eye. on marriage and in the financial world. to cease to moments and i'm not stopping c.d.'s only take no demands of credit not going to get any economic benefit in life there are good and there are folks. welcome back israel's military campaign against hamas is over for now but the battle for palestinians to rebuild their lives has barely begun here's what was left after the assault thousands of homes in ruins after weeks of deadly airstrikes township's razed to the ground only shell craters and deborah remain official estimates the cost of rebuilding at over six billion dollars well efforts to
restore garza will be hampered by the blockade imposed by israel that severely restricts imports of building materials over fears they could be used by hamas to build cross border tunnels and rocket so let me show you what the u.n. and other international organizations have calculated as the human cost of operation protective edge left more than twenty one hundred palestinians dead including children the u.n. puts the number of civilian victims at sixty nine percent of total killed israel saw seventy two people killed all but six of them were soldiers seventeen thousand homes were destroyed or badly damaged in the recent campaign moreover garza now has a housing deficit of seventy five thousand homes following years rady offensive and disaster relief organization linked to the u.n. says it will take more than twenty years to rebuild the infrastructure and he's an hour away from r.t. in the now i spoke to palestinian campaigner british m.p.
george galloway who explained why gardens have the right to defend their last. thing that the israeli government is the only responsible side for the recent violence that we've seen what about hamas just a mere 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. nobody would accept you wouldn't accept my country wouldn't accept it if come and steal your country and wipe off the map and take your house 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 their country. was the veteran politician gave after being attacked in london apparently his piece on the israeli
hamas conflict he explained what happened that night 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 shot complete with the logo came on charging 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 contained his words he would like to cut my throat. amount of 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. in an hour is back later today on r.t. live and interactive with an eastern hour with your news and your reactions. people who dress up their pets have some pretty out of this world ideas at times but here is the real deal for around eight thousand euros you could get this original soviet space suit designed for dogs it was used to train a pair of four legged space explorers and is up for auction this month your piece can of has their historic heroic story. 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 could 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 there are 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 spacesuits were introduced and that led to the first canine spacewalk lisa became the first live animal ever to float outside a craft in a space suit she came back alive and well and gave birth to some healthy puppies to most strip had an extra twist her landing pad got lost in a storm scientists took two days to find it because a herdsman straw her colored parachute 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. well things got so tense during the cold war that the united states made sure everyone was on board even training up citizen spies by teaching residents in alaska how to become agents behind enemy lines if the soviets breached the bering strait we've got that story for you at r.t. dot com. the mexican mystery of the lethal lagoon experts are puzzled as to why tons of dead fish have washed up on the shore for the fourth time. the turmoil in pakistan's capital shows little sign of abating with of people marching on government buildings there have been two weeks of mass opposition
rallies in islamabad accusing the prime minister of rigging last year's general election and demanding he step down we asked the pakistan affairs expert about what could be behind the unrest. it's quite unfortunate to see that to do to repeat it military intervention bureaucratic structure and due to corruption in the political and civil and military groups receive. democratic institutions cleaned up and flourish and that has actually we couldn't do pretty practices what we see in the recent days that is actually a manifestation of people's lack of confidence in democratic practices a newly a recently more recently elected government has has been put in just a just situation which you actually do when you go to the democratic situation could that this is in pakistan rather me if as the stated military intervention so
yes the result warning sign did you lose a lot of concern about how long the government would be able to sustain. some international news embrace now scores of people have been killed by block around militant islamist group seize the nigerian town of thousands of civilians have fled the area or her arms insurgency has intensified after it declared an islamic state in the towns it controls mexico's capital has seen thousands to an ad against the president pushing through a series of crucial reforms for education to energy teaches anger was focused on changes on how they are chosen for jobs and school funding and to reform the center on plans to open up the market to foreign firms but critics say it will spur corruption and capital flight demonstrators pulled for a national strike to start on sunday and heavy rains and flooding and landslides in southwest china have killed at least ten people while thirty others are missing the

or get a helping hand to carry your luggage locals in the german capital are demanding a ban on the use of seat cases with wheels saying this kind of baggage robs them of sleep artie's peter oliver has got the story. every year thousands of tourists flock here to the german capital bulletins 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 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
