seven pm in moscow i matras or bring you today's breaking news coverage here on r.t. international ukraine's president says there's been a coup in his country opposition activists in full control of the ukrainian capital kiev now and the new interior minister says police are now on their site the presidential residence stands virtually abandoned after the head of state himself fled the city or he's alexei or a chef he is live for us in kiev with all the latest alexei. oh. yes indeed despite that what seems to be a true political may have the mayhem in the streets of the riots changed the political situation right now with obviously all the governmental buildings in kiev now if you applied by the opposition including the administration of the president the parliament the government all that most of the ministries including the ministry of defense the ministry of the in syria like sara show of ski there giving us that update from kiev. so
it's actually our other good morning in kiev right now. philip i'm showing tires burning for the president and most of the ruling party will be in fact left the capital. the fact is that we know the president is close like a peaceful atter q.o.l. you know law enforcement in the city i was just driving a car for the town last not a single traffic police had. i'm like a few days ago when it was pretty much for about because you couldn't get anywhere that would actually be true but you know well you. have people hold the power right you remember that that is great. that's where we were showed up where else do you see now with all the conflicts going on in the world that the people who actually hold you to power some weight.
at the moment the news is a want to bounce ukraine's new story switching from. it's not going to be top of their agenda at all the latest news is eighty people killed and the atiku now really missing. the polls showing on the life position a bullet that has to wind up by and say with also found some kind of show in their office i think mostly i just wish i was there. also. i don't want to get shot obviously. brings. me to. i'm. going to. planing beach kind of thing but most of not when it's a friday and every friday they have demonstrations here against the war so i
haven't been here before and try to actually film a demonstration my understanding is that they'll go towards the wall and they'll provoke soldiers and at some stage they'll be a confrontation and they claim here is that all of this land is palestinian land and where the soldiers on with assessments are being told where the wall is being erected is on palestinian land and that is radio stating they lead from maybe you've got to three dozen people maximum walking the content but feel a little bit disappointed i mean i'm certainly not where the news is at them at the moment if the police if you mean. if we could just have something happen today would we can justify being there.
i mean we the same thing. and it's a human trait as in it's maybe why it's important. you know that you know. that's. why i don't take changing anything or i've ever been in ukraine you know. makes me sound like i'm suicide or something but. you know i never been to a real clash through violence. so right now we're walking towards the street which is the administration of the president building and if you go back to december the first that's when basically the whole active phase of the protests started i mean the violent one the biggest fight was here i mean literally. several dozen protesters rushed at the police with the police lines were just. to meet us from
here right these the bulldozers around the lines and the biggest fight was happening here right now as you can see we can walk inside clearly no obstacles in our way so the administration building is now no longer in the control of of the president and the police is controlled by by the protesters. so this is how situations changed over the past two months when the police started pushing the protesters back they kicked some journalists out of here and kicked them on the ground so basically. the guys are standing with these yellow things right this was the police line. while there was the several hundred policemen in that line and several hundred more protesters from that side. that's when things were starting to get really really like scary and intense. right now if you see you can see it's a totally different scene at the moment like totally different. let's try to get inside.
one of the. possible. was. with. these things do magic right. actually the time in the summer the fuss to get here to get in this place that's what i was doing my first stand up my first as life i couldn't i could barely speak because of all the pepper gas. at this rate will have to take at the gas masks out. there that's where the police were heavily protecting the administration building so i was literally walking over here and saying things and the guy came over to me and said go away from here
because you might get shot by them or by them you're in between the lines. but we did a quick one and returned back to the office and he did it right now you see there's nothing here i mean it's controlled by the by the protesters that's going to. get up. so this is the presidential administration building which used to be the probably the most protected governmental building in the whole of key of the biggest fight in the first stages of the protest happened here now as you can see we are taken on an excursion it is no longer controlled by the police or the government the protesters have occupied this building as well i. think the building they're using state security. responsible for securing the comment. this happened at eleven pm this evening so we came here became
a matter of course communication with the chair of the security of the building and being made at the station that's. controlling the safety and security that they are inside our representatives are also inside we shall take anyone inside right. now represent that these are you i mean the press. the security. of the press not to get ok their security concern and i know your house is inside right now i've been there inside already i haven't been but our representatives have been no go mental work is saying thank you. for there we are no gunshots fired and the presidential building is now split between the for so security forces and the self defense as they call themselves they told us is based. on the right. i mean i walked here hundreds of times when i used to work in kiev right so we took interviews
inside this building with officials we interviewed the government said if this is on the same square that over the last two and a half months this has been a besieged territory this is been the forbidden zone in kiev heavily secured by the police probably the second most guarded in the most protected building in the whole of the city the first one was the residence of the president himself right so now this is pretty much open and we can go inside but this is a temporary thing i guess. oh
oh i did daily search for you to take it all we know there. is a. little. favor. did you know the price is the only industry specifically mentioned in the constitution and. that's because a free and open press is critical to our democracy. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and our. we've been a hydrogen handful of transnational corporations that will profit by destroying what our founding fathers once i'm tom hartman and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on and we go beyond identifying. rational
debate and a real discussion critical issues facing america are you ready to join the movement and welcome it. so thursday about eight forty the morning i came over here because i was supposed to have a live broadcast from hotel ukraine which is the building over there just the parking lot so with this barricade you see right now there was like a police cordon over here. and i was going to say from the knowledge that there was a truce agreed on wednesday night and then nothing much to be happening i checked the twitter feed in the morning and i saw that. times are burning with nothing much is happening so when i came here it was a huge line of policemen and they were just saying you cannot go in and like guys i have a live broadcast from mosul ukraine well eventually i managed to. let them let me inside. when i was passing this very get over here the police line. to the hotel
first thing i saw on that other side. was a riot policemen carried on a stretch of fifteen leading all over the place. so this was like the first creepiest feeling i mean seriously this supposed to be truce agreed and now this is happening. so eventually i got to the hotel. and i was doing a live broadcast. whenever things when everything started and things started getting really violent right right behind me i mean people were shooting at each other the police shooting at the protesters with the protesters replying with fire arm. gunfire then we went up on the balcony and this was pretty much the scene of the most tragic episode where. i reckon it was about seven eight people carrying shields only shields they didn't have any firearms on them they were trying to get through and they were shot at with firearms so this is where. this is
where they died essentially i mean they were wounded here and the dead as well because i was standing at the entrance to the hotel ukraine about twenty minutes after that and i saw them carried inside and they were like there were bits and pieces basically. there was the idea. that to be honest. some action i know but it's obviously the same thing happens every single. thing if it's like david and i. contemplate feel it's all a game of cat and mouse you know. because but. i thought. i.
think it's a question if ranking. and this one's got a house here. and this guy's going to want his garden. you know. it's just dangerous. to listen. to something that came out wrong it's not. doing this as the woman was explaining to me if we find. something is not working. but how do you say. oh. yeah.
do they want. not a very brief. as i. can see and you don't want to do that kind of. so one man a very good to me and the other one and it just closed and the gas better out and i couldn't see anything it was just i could hardly breathe and you know trying to catch me and i thought i was a stream and it's painful when you get this gas in your eyes it's really really so one you can't see anything you don't know where to go in the firing you hear people yelling you don't understand what it's saying so like i remember thinking like you cover your head because the head is going to be the most vulnerable possible to achieve move in which direction and. the can be quite frightening it's almost as
as bizarre and ridiculous and stupid that's stupid because it doesn't achieve anything. to get people killed eighteen year olds wasting their potential. and every time i am there and the hell is that coming i can serve everybody is going as if. i want to take. this in this word genocide fedak i swear we are pathetic pathetic pathetic with a capital t. i want to take one of these there are one of these canisters with me i'm sure of getting would knock on his wealth. it was worth coming was it. right now it's a rather bizarre situation in ukraine in the. bizarre not a new one and not in a bad way bizarre i mean it's maybe in a good way bizarre but the thing is that people are mourning the dead they held vigils they are saying prayers for their souls the ones who died in the protest
right. before you reach your private beach right. now. at the same time the setting off fireworks and cheering and applauding every time something big happens in the parliament and one thing you just happened five minutes ago the parliament voted with the constitution majority is like more than three hundred thirty votes to the president selfishly and legitimately. ukraine has no president now. this is ultimately what these people wanted i mean this is this was their goal to get out to get rid of. their next goal. might be the willingness to put him on trial. i'm sure he will she will she will she will be in
exile she will leave the flee the country in a nutshell this should be bringing the to the end. because they won on every front . the only thing which they haven't won yet is a guarantee that the country will stay in one piece because there's strong opposition to that in the east in the south and that is not that is not propaganda that is not an illusion i mean seriously if you just talk to the people in the south they are against this whole thing. for the past two months my my emotions have been pretty much off i put something of a shield on my emotional level just not to be overreacting over this kind of thing to be professional to war and to deliver the news right but i can guarantee you i'm sure and i know that when i return home i'll pour myself this glass of something obviously and i'll probably be very emotional for what happened.
because it's really hard it's hard to see all this despite the meaning of it despite obviously. supporting the willingness of the people to oust the president i mean he literally he's been a bad president first. many of my friends suffered because of his corrupt system which should build. yourself he's a bad president i'm not afraid to say to a lot of freedom to say anywhere i mean he's a bad president she was about president right. after they had seen and it's really really beautiful and this is the lowest point in the low. there's a city that i knew that did see when it was still said. left me it's for a new way to have the i love this part of the trip where we get a chance just to. reflect i think it was
a good job to this because that's jordan over there i mean it's just going to leave a bill how close it is. not far from s.s. the city of jericho which was the lowest city in the world that's continuously inhabited there's no signs of life in the water i mean it's also known as the sea of salt because it's completely sold out to the salt get into the sea. thank you for that explanation for. going to liberty bell would you think oh good good if. i did remember reading that that if you believe in the bible that whole story of what it's called the. way everybody was so bad and they turned around and she was turned into to sodom sodom and gomorra. and that i think was hit that they had seen because this supposed to be a place i in fact have seen it in jordan we went and somebody showed me this massive statue and that was how to get seventy to be here and i want to say thank
you guys for a great job and i spent. was . a lot of colorado shooting but still i mean this this was our memory and your says well i was wrong because what happened here but anyway that was really terrible terrible terrible was actually if i was going to live oh standing right here. so you can see the trajectory. to get it right so this should be my. two minutes before we're supposed to go out. for a bit shell shocked. just get my not have to do my work with look at this every time it's. easy this is us internationally twenty four hours a day life from a studio center in moscow breaking news now lawmakers in ukraine have voted to
impeach the president viktor yanukovych for crimes against the people well that's the latest ruling body now opposition dominated parliament and actually had a chef he has the latest for us from the capital how here is indeed the news or are we to our greeks. a big breaking news meanwhile a key itself is no longer controlled by anyone we know that the opposition protesters are controlling whole of the governmental buildings in the city and we know from from heiko fan this has been confirmed that the former prime minister yulia timoshenko the arc rival of unocal which has left the prison hospital and now on her way to kiev. is defined he says he will not accept any decisions coming from the parliament he still is the acting president according to himself and he earlier equated everything happening in the country to a quote a time he even made a comparison to nine hundred thirty situation in germany when nazis were coming to
i am not a politician but we see that it is arab countries that sit on the world's greatest oil reserves and the west just cannot stay away from such tremendous wealth so in order to get their heads without oil the west employs what i would call cultural terrorists. getting over the wall to peace from.
