the winter olympics and south korea have wrapped up with coming out on top of the medals table at the olympic athletes from russia or. at the doping scandal having prevented many russians from competing there that did not stop the team from beating expectations. takes a closer look at achievements in. well seventy medals chang is only minus twelve if you compare it to twenty nine team russian medals unsought cheat this is not blowing result but it still deserves a huge round of applause given that most russia stars weren't even invited here by
the international olympic committee so basically it was mostly a team of olympic newbies but i'll tell you what did blow the mind of russian fans here in p.r. and chang it is the first gold medal by their men's ice hockey team in twenty six years the final was really tough neck and neck till the last second with surprise silver medal as germany and the red machine was all able to show who's boss on an extra time game was very tough for the germany didn't get to the final for no reason it's great that we won that we levelled the school and then the final point in overtime i think this goal brought joy to millions of russian fans speaking of bosses on ice owais are won two gold medals at these olympics and the first one was no less rational when men's ice skating two russian teenage girls topped the
podium after breaking two world records one after another within fifteen minutes but of course you can't share one gold and thanks to one extra point from the jury . of a fifteen year old girl for me jeff became the champion and we were the first t.v. channel to talk to her after she got off the podium in an exclusive interview. before competition i fully distance myself from the outside world i don't read or watch the news just some t.v. series this time i was very calm to you i didn't mind the attention from the journalists fans and the fact that i'm participating in the olympic games. for me it was the same as any other competition of course i supported the other athletes from russia but i didn't feel this big burden of responsibility maybe that helped me. change because of that the book spoke with a go i just you were so calm of your performance and everyone said that the only
source single tear what did you do to say so-called spoil the best i will consider this i'm getting no this is. actually there are no tears at all and i'm always like that keeping my emotions to myself but when i go home i always share all my emotions with my parents. i think when i get home i will be dancing and jumping for joy i hope by the time i get home i will realize what i have achieved. so you haven't been jumping and dancing so far when you put it to work so you can but i get i only during my routine. what about your relationship with. your rivals and nice but is it true that you were actually friends even if you have a vision of a disease that yes absolutely we have to go to have a coffee or a chat on social media between training we always share funny videos on instagram and have a good laugh together yes we do and so did i miss mission the already that all of you said you don't notice the media attention but we have to ask you about the
american skates ashley wagner who criticize your routine saying that putting all the very complicated elements at the end is basically cheating what would you say to her. no one goes because it just it if i can say that this only encouraged me to do more and better i wanted to prove even more that what she was saying is not true but you cannot prove anything to people like her know that i say let her compete in the olympics with my program and i'll gladly see how she'll manage to do it of course figure skating is developing really fast nowadays there's always a new generation younger than me maybe someday i might think like that too because in my group there are some girls who can do quadruple jumps but i will try as hard as i can to stay in sports. as long as i can i'm already thinking about the next season is that everything. will you think about but. for now i cannot think about anything else i try to be as careful as i can and not make any mistakes so i can stay in skating for as long as i can do it within the sport but
over the last few weeks there was an awful lot happening in and around the olympic facilities besides just us. just hours before the opening ceremony protests have erupted outside the olympic stadium. what kind of team did people with this kind of sweatshirt support i'm sure i. take it half really really can't wait for the russian one from mr kim here again we hear to go to some houses walk around and meet some people yeah i'm going to meet some athletes i see any good ones on kidnap them back to north korea see the usa versus team oh you are and. you have to stop filming every other minute because it was almost impossible.

a week targeting al nusra terrorists is something of that allowed under the new u.n. resolution however according to the russian defense ministry it was militants in eastern guta who violated the truce moscow says damascus was shelled several times after the ceasefire came into effect residents say they never actually believe the militants would abide by the truce in the first place. this truce is similar to the others and we will see it being violated this is the same old story and we are the ones who end up being harmed but don't you see the children old people women and students who should we feel sorry for for these rebellious. we are tired of shelling every day totally took forty four here let me i am against the truth because it only benefits the rebels i hope that it will be over
soon and that no gunmen remain there the resolution calls for a thirty day cease fire across syria and this it's hoped to allow allow time for injured civilians to be evacuated and for much needed aid to reach stricken areas a number of terror groups such as lawmaker state al qaida and the latest incarnation of al nusra are excluded from the agreement and forces operating in syria are allowed to continue anti terrorist operations however despite all the efforts the truce appears to have little chance of surviving as what i guess the of explains. thirty days of peace ceasefire of course all of syria sounds wonderful a pause for civilians time for food to reach the hungry starving people for the wounded to be treated no shelling no bombs and almost no chance.
east ghouta a suburb of damascus the last to islamist stronghold in the area it's from here that rebels blindly shelled damascus killing and killing and killing civilians for years now the syrian army launches a counter-terror alteration and buying international outrage. by the escalation of strikes these two groups are living how hell on earth unbearable suffering indiscriminate shelling of residential areas intentional and systematic targeting of civilians the human disaster is enough dead children and nothing wrecked families the thing in syria is you can argue anyone is a terrorist given how much blood almost everyone has on their hands take the rebels and islam is to control east ghouta they put women in cages and the horse them
on to roofs to protect themselves from air strikes a literal human shield they shot the demonstrators beheaded prisoners scots off people's heads on camera now they're allegedly forbidding people from leaving the war zone as rebels also did in aleppo the freedom fighters or terrorists is. the last stronghold. or the syrian capital the surgeons or be. continuous attacks on civilians is the part of the city. and many civilians have died so far so that's why the sitting government better to do. the flip side of course is that islam is rebels will say as'ad is a terrorist they will show you their dead and say as'ad did this and not say we're
exempt from this ceasefire we can show him all we want you see now by a sudden blanket ceasefire across syria is optimistic especially when there's so many terrorists waiting to be killed the russian defense ministry also said that according to its sources the groups in eastern guta are preparing to use chemical weapons to provoke a reaction from the international community against the assad government and political science professor mike at both ross says the violence is unlikely to end soon. it's naive to say we have to stop the violence overnight and cease fire overnight simply because only the parties involved have interest to continue on with this violence terrorist groups have instructions to escape the violence. terrorist groups in this state
of this the out of so desperate that's why i can't believe that they. can use chemical weapons as the last chord on the table but the king of spain touches down for a visit in barcelona and all that does is pump up both sides of the debate about the region's independence will cover the story and i'm a. what
politicians do you should. put themselves on the line. they did accept it or reject it. so when you want to be president i'm sure. it was something i wanted. to go right to be it's like the korean people. i'm interested always in the why. should. i. just twenty twenty past the hour here in moscow the king spain paid a visit to bos alone on sunday prompting both pro unity and pro independence demonstrators to take to the streets resulting in scuffles with the police.
thank. you. it was king philip a visit to catalonia since the region's referendum on independence hundreds of people many carrying catalan flags got that in the city center where they were met by riot police and that rally carried on into the night with people chanting support for jailed cattle and leaders who were of course imprisoned off to the referendum vote last october which was deemed illegal by the spanish government and here's a quick look back at how spain's biggest political crisis in fourteen view has unfolded. i
old great the exiled cattle and lead a huge amount would lead to the continuation of emergency rule by madrid thomas hiring to an expert on catalonia says simply put people have had enough. what we're seeing here is the the results of the spanish government its tactic of right and rule and the fact that on january thirtieth the two main parties of the catalan to defend its movement were unable to come to an agreement as to the swearing in of the exile got on pres a lot of people felt quite deflated by the inability of the leadership of the bill to get together at this crucial time. and so i want to keep the feeling worn out so i think we're in a position. where the rules of this feeling of this deflated because of the failure of the leadership to get together and yet here are speaking out in the streets perhaps a more organic fashion. sometimes that the latest news who looks like
nothing new when british magazine the economist recently ran a front cover showing the russian president vladimir putin as a meddling octopus attacking western democracies it was talking back to a tried and tested formula. i. don't know what's more striking the liberals have been using the putin as a soviet menace trope for a full decade although they've been using russia is not to push for a full century. western depiction stand to screen between the deal aggressive briery and two nations while the octopus. picture needs revising should show us as
a giant squid russia as a tiny little octopus we did title very biased you how do you know and it states menaces the world's democracies. this is a very old trick to. the funny thing is how this kind of thing is used to working even even today it will be more and more popular this kind of a comparisons using motifs very popular during the times of the cold war era russia is no longer soviet union it's presented as the same and it be you know
directly in the age the reason why you have this guy comparison this kind of came pain in that game against russia is exactly because russia now is a relevant player in the global politics thanks for sharing a monday with us here at r.t. international we are back soon with more worldwide headlines. what's going on is only producing. bubble delusional fears it doesn't have an emu unless it leads to real chaos which can be . no guarantee of only by those pristine new president.
about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself in taking your last bang term. you're at right up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath . but then my feeling started to change you talked about more like it was again still some my fond of you those that didn't like to question our archaea they secretly promised to never again. like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with this one quite different speech because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its make.
me. feel on a hot day at a dinner table bottle a sighting in china six oir here and. an estimated eighteen fastens under-age refugees are now living in greece. you know still more. to do at home and there you go for doing. so many sell their bodies just to make ends meet some. of them second on the second i get no assistance in that as helpless as an alumnus could. also has turned to dealing drugs to make a living. just as a little gentle of blood runs a little. game of been. looted
who. apply for many flips over the years so i know the game inside out so. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super manager killian erroneous and spending two to twenty million at one player. book it's an experience like nothing else on earth because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful game like rachel will pull chance with . the police this morning. everybody i'm stephen. with. that's. right american interests george washington and r.v. . this is my buddy max famous financial guru just
