doesn't give a darn about anything mission to teach creation and why you should care about human . lives is why you should care only. a resistance. military fortunes in the east with the rising body count in the armed forces sparking protests by soldiers relatives plus i don't want to put the cart before the horse we don't have a strategy yet kurdish forces push back against the advance of the islamic state fighters as western leaders try to thrash out a plan to keep the jihadist threat. and the british m.p. beaten in his home country for supporting the palestinians in his first interview since the brutal attack george galloway tells our about what happened.
at the welcome you with r.t. international coming to you live from moscow. now after weeks and even months in hiding shell shocked civilians in east ukraine are coming out of their shelters at least in towns no longer targeted by the military swathes of the east have been devastated by fighting but some have the chance to rebuild what's been destroyed. first the first is in the phone but also for it is very very. busy even though there are suspicions that this is another example you could use the readers or you might be a little bit more so than most potential city in the world but even if you put. a resistance fighters are 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 been shifted the regions of against and
then yes seen here are the focus of what here of course is anti terror operation and the government forces used to control this strike part of the map but then retreated to regroup closer to the main cities fighters now say this orange area you can see here is under their control they've essentially driven the army ads were in the past few days they have managed to seize around a dozen tanks the crane army is surrounded in several locations you can see the circle lines here and 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 and they say that they've blocked all the roads leading in and out of the city in the south though no offensive is planned for national reports on what the civilian population is going through during here of the salt what many feared could happen is 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 really think you or that you even heard from but when you're still in the open the borders don't loom given what that truck was too. early you see here the girl who you need to have. to stay tuned. this is a soviet era bomb shelter builds during the cold war but until now it hadn't been used. because the. clashes are also 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 ganske are among those seeking refuge from the fierce fighting which has overwhelmed their homes by the affair not done to. block. some road to jupiter studio to ship the ocean last march a clash of radius of the moon within the confidence we. need for thought but a mission of when the but of course family celebrate the birthday one of the younger members the also give thanks that they have finally found some kind of safety that will not cheat was look forward year like you did me good at studio it is two words put it on one with both of the equipment a lot of people i said thank you are all just little now how did she sound. enough to shake you andree used to love playing war like old boys of his age that's number 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 called these people's pain feeds the endor and many fear when the guns fall silent crane will not be able to overcome the consequences of what has happened here. r.t. in eastern ukraine the rising casualty count in the ukrainian military has prompted another protesting here by the mothers of drafted soldiers. by was hundreds suspended on the parliament demanding their sons fathers and husbands 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 was quickly silence. life got to her personal life out of me about to be been beaten nearly got to not be stupid not lice got caught i think in my book i was at the now did she and you did see. but i walk right through here i see this point that you are today going to sway me several hours ago. right now could you not have us not to put a green screen i mean you. i mean time human rights watch says three hundred civilians have died and again since may as a result of indiscriminate bombing searches on these apartment blocks the group blames both kiev's military and anti-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 against cretins have set out their position on establishing ties with kiev and the conditions that need to be met you can get the details of those at r.t.
dot com. i couldn't 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 all over how europe and the u.s. should deal with the islamic state. that some of the proposals. as more countries admit they're up against than 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. 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 this gets an even more involved a viable way forward i'm not sure of the kurds especially if there are influences from the p.k. the p.k. caves 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 a major mistake of. i mean 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 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 two thousand and fourteen terrorism 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 and they bring out is now 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 hartis who are stealing a march in syria while abroad politicians shift nervously to avoid sending their soldiers back into the middle east but delays in the size of this could ignite the time bomb that will bring the terrorists to them marina cost of our reporter from london for it see 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 here's an example the mayor of london went as far as proposing that anyone who travels to iraq and syria without telling the authorities be labeled terrorists until they prove their innocence the idea has found little support the head of the muslim public affairs committee in the u.k.
believes british foreign policies have led to such radicalized. sims 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 that 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 glycine 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 are going to deal with a british problem that they can make a change to that foreign policy by being involved in this system now after a break we'll tell you about the sheer scale of the task ahead for the people of gaza and the way the israeli offensive that story and more in a couple of minutes. 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 of the of mr president is that which is diddy's calling for him to go. and still be at least to syria is going to be a subset of. illegal . told me my language as well but i will only react to situations as i have read the reports so let me put it to the no i will leave that to the state department to comment on your latter point of the month so please sir k.l.a. car is on the docket else on. the radio no more weasel words
when you veda direct question be prepared for a change when you approach punch be ready for a. critical speech and down the street into costs. 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 shelled craters and debris remain official estimates the cost of rebuilding that over six billion dollars and 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 rockets so let me show you what the u.n.
and other international organizations have calculated as the actual human cost 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 the total killed in israel saw seventy two people killed all but six of them were soldiers or seventeen thousand homes were destroyed or badly damaged in the recent campaign moreover garza now has a housing deficit of something like seventy five thousand homes following the israeli offensive and his 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 artie's in the now i spoke to palestinian campaign and british m.p. george galloway who explained why garzon have the right to defend their land do you 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 it 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. well that's the veteran politician has given after being attacked in london apparently for his views on the conflict and 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 it 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 the now is back later today on r.t.e. live and interactive with anita now 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 it's up for auction this month your piece can of has their historic heroic story their world famous for going to space and back before humans get everest or exploring the cosmos in nine hundred sixty two stories bill made species three 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 could tell you without them the u.s.s.r. would have never been able to send the first man into orbit by which is 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. only 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 space suit 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 her colored parachute dog was ok though but the breakthrough in space scheme with her mission is also probably the saddest she became the first ever animal to get into orbit but stressed out 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 spread so it was
a brief adventure for some of the man's best friends to some giant leaps for mankind well things got so tense during the cold war the united states made sure everyone was on board even training our citizens spies by teaching residents in alaska how to become agents behind enemy lines that the soviets breached the bering strait we've got that story three com also there the mexican missionary of the lethal lagoon experts are puzzled as to why tonnes of dead fish have washed up on shore for the fourth time. the turmoil in pakistan's capital shows little sign of abating the thousands of people marching on government buildings there have been two weeks of mass opposition rallies in islamabad a keys in the prime minister of rigging last year's general election and the man being he steps down we asked pakistan affairs expert what could be behind the rest . 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 group proceed. democratic institutions couldn't develop 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 into such as to situation which you hold actually do any good to the democratic situation democratic practices 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. a quick look at some other stories now scores of people have been killed by boko haram militants when the islamist group seize the nigerian town of. civilians have

peter all of a scope a story. every year thousands of tourists flock here to the german capital the bulletins reputation as a cool destination for a city break they 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 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 back problems they 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 quite so 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 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. just ahead max kaiser explains how the advance of islamic state militants in iraq and syria is affecting global finances here with the.
i matched as your welcome to the kaiser report yet what happens when as you say after world war one a bunch of european countries just show up in the middle east and draw lines all over the map and say oh he's in the new countries we don't care about the history culture well flesh for twenty four and you end up with islamic state or isis basically exactly and max it looks like fox news and do it republicans are right it looks like we might have an islamic state in the world islamic state now resembles the taliban with oil fields the islamic state which now controls an area of iraq and syria larger than the u.k. maybe reason more than two million dollars a day right.
