welcoming this new democracy in kiev. to notice what was being done as it spread its wings over the country. many in southern ukraine had been viewing the revolution with concern. and an anti mind on movement formed in the city of odessa in early january two thousand and fourteen the protesters set up their camp in front of the trade union house a building which would soon become a monument to a massacre of its own it's difficult to overestimate the importance of odessa it is strategically located on the black sea and it's ukraine's largest seaport it's not surprising that ukraine's new authorities were watching the situation unfolding there with growing alarm. more and more of odessa as people were joining the anti my don movement at the same time as events in eastern ukraine were heating up. the new ukrainian government didn't have the power to wage war on too many fronts if
odessa were to join the growing uprising in the eastern regions it would seriously complicate the situation. this rebellion had to be extinguished immediately and at any cost and that cost was high. on may second two thousand and fourteen soccer fans flocked to the center of odessa city for the ukrainian championship match surprisingly a great number of these fans who descended into odessa just the night before also turned out to be fighters from the my don self-defense units along with members of radical organizations from all parts of ukraine that these. look. these families and asked armed and shouting nationalist mottos began disturbances in the center of the city as they marched to the anti my don tent encampment where they attacked. the end time mind on protesters sought shelter in the trading house but it was a traffic mind on supporters started throwing molotov. cocktails into the building
until it was engulfed in flames. people burned to death inside for trying to escape jumped from. how low a fire station was less than a mile away it took almost half an hour for firefighters to arrive when they finally did the damage had been done. but here's an intriguing fact just a few days before those dreadful events a messenger from my don andriy pair o. b. made a visit to odessa it's an interesting coincidence that some of the people he met with in odessa were seen at the scene that fateful day. but not everyone was mourning on the popular political talk show schuster live the news about the people burned alive in odessa was welcomed with
a long round of applause for you sure for saudi what this it but lots of it i don't want to see just to just put your story you know what would you see. on its facebook page the right sector announced the events of may second a proud moment in national history an official investigation into this sad event has been going on now for nearly two years and it's yet to reach a conclusion but it seems the experts and all the information they needed from the very beginning. you just get really cute you keep watching it. it looks like a desa really is a very important piece of real estate as it was honored with a very special new governor appointed on may thirtieth of two thousand and fifteen . mikhail saakashvili the old friend of the united states and born and raised
in ukraine. neighboring country georgia hello no down there in georgia a quick look at his biography gives one an understanding that he's been groomed for a special mission she debuted this argument on his i will go to let me go to mr saakashvili received a u.s. state department scholarship and he worked for a new york law firm which represented the organization commodity a group that appeared earlier when we learned about the color revolutions and we're dealing with democratic blood blister aleutian this is the revolution of roses and this is me kyle saakashvili with camara busy overthrowing the legitimately elected president eduard shevardnadze. but. that's because. soon after the rose revolution blossom fully george announced its intentions to join nato and plant fresh nato military bases in the fertile soil right on russia's
border never ever will give our freedom and independence never never will give any piece of our territory saakashvili is mission was accomplished at least with his friends and nato the georgian populace wasn't quite as happy though in two thousand and seven they took to the streets to voice discontent and mr saakashvili responded with force. the people's discontent. saakashvili party lost parliamentary elections and the opposition took control he said this means that the parliamentary majority should set up a new government as the president according to our constitution decided not to wait for the results of the president's election and fled the country in october two thousand and thirteen.
summit or no summit that's the question north korea's threat of a no show when single for on june twelfth is a reminder to washington that north korea will not merely cave to american demands if there's going to be an agreement it's going to take time and patience. trade wars don't make any sense because the only way to keep these countries dependent on the dollar is that they have to export to the u.s. in exchange for dollars because they need dollars to be part of the global economy and so when you go into a trade war and you cut that off you kill you and you put a gun to your head and commit financial suicide by killing the dollar which is what the top administration seems hell bent on doing in the months.
in two thousand and fourteen saakashvili refused summons to appear in court as a witness in several criminal cases later that same year he was accused of misuse of power and investment. saakashvili wound up in the u.s. and soon his friends in washington found him a new assignment. mikail actively supported my down and very soon was rewarded with a high position in the new ukrainian government. first as the president's counselor and then as the governor of odessa the day before taking this position he renounced his citizenship to georgia the country of the birth and became a ukrainian citizen. in the scene that asked others gordon to die in the legs or did it in a see saw. gordon get it done in the way exhorted rode in. as they say the battle is worth the blood both literally and figuratively yet they could ask us
now do i not somebody affordable by the us south australia play a pick last night is now tossed thought. on now but i knew him as someone dear to chester but i have a cut on those nasty she could hang up to date on the my seal of geoffrey pyatt the u.s. ambassador to ukraine paid a visit to saakashvili just a month after he took office in odessa it is law is the all lost of ministration is delivering results and you raise your voice to see a steady flow of embassy and washington visitors coming here the meeting was fruitful and geoffrey generous. no matter how well saakashvili is job goes it looks like he shouldn't be worried about his own finances on his facebook page he posted an official document showing that the new governor of odessa gets a pretty penny from washington almost two hundred thousand dollars a year for comparison the governor of maine gets seventy thousand dollars
a year. so if odessa became a new u.s. state it would be at the top of the list mr saakashvili should feel right at home in his newly adopted country he is best of friends with fellow color revolutionary leader viktor yuschenko who is the godfather of his son. the now that i'm of the school bus and the lesson of the ship is insufficient at the post but you walk us kind of being it's just sad to see them leave some will commence going to. the moon in the desert i will choose a sister. but when used to the cut the hook but the least of those three is if i did it with you but i just stand on the. void that business do a little bit of that of this old motion just in the body of this this but it's the end of the muscle but what bone is does who are able to contain such. a war once launched doesn't choose its victims we are just learning at this hour
that malaysian airlines has now confirmed that it has lost contact with one of its planes plane was indeed shot down by a missile while flying at a high altitude over eastern ukraine near the russian border two hundred ninety eight revised number of souls on board all feared dead it was a murder it was a crime there's been this odd nonchalance about pursuing the answers there was a report a very limited report put out a few months after the event but since then they said the next report will be on the first anniversary of the event but you deal with a criminal investigation before becomes a cold case so there's been this curious element of why is there not greater pressure from both the media and the the western governments to answer these questions but even without any answers the fingers were pointed immediately that's
not an action. that is happening because a russian support evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by a surface to air missile that was launched from an area that is controlled by russian backed separatists inside of ukraine international so to put up a national initiative it's just it's a question take. the malaysian boeing wasn't the first plane to play a significant part in american russian relationships on september first one thousand nine hundred three korean airlines flight double zero seven from new york to seoul via anchorage was shot down by a soviet interceptor aircraft over the territory of the u.s.s.r. in the sea of japan there was absolutely no justification i don't legal or moral for what the soviets did the tragedy of the korean bowing was considered a perfect occasion to demonstrate the nato military power within dangerous proximity to the soviets on november second one thousand nine hundred eighty three
nato launched able archer attend a command post exercise simulating a conflict escalation culminating in a nuclear attack it was followed by placing pershing two nuclear missiles in europe . what reagan didn't take into consideration was the paranoid overreaction of the soviets and. a recently declassified us intelligence report shows that for the first time since the cuban missile crisis the world was that close to nuclear war. just like in one thousand nine hundred three the malaysian boeing crash was leveraged against the enemy. a new wave of sanctions hit russia mediately after the tragedy. the united states is imposing new sanctions in key sectors of the russian economy. year and three months later the dutch safety board published a report this is a flight m.h. seventy crashed because often. i have three well for and or i have the today just
outside of the arrow playing the best the left side of the car fits the report didn't blame any specific group or person and estimated a very wide area of three hundred twenty kilometers as a zone from which the missiles fired at the same time the russian producer of boog missiles day conducted its own independent investigation. that they speeded me up the fullest. lieu of the delegates i mean did i get the nist is up ask them during the experiment they blew up a retired airliner with a bouquet missile and came to the conclusion that the malaysian plane was brought down by the older type of missiles not used by russia anymore but still in the possession of ukraine the company claims that the missile was launched from the territory controlled by the ukrainian military and. one would expect that these controversial results would again stir up public interest in the
investigation but the tragedy of malaysian flight m h seventeen at already played its role in the big geopolitical game therefore it was soon forgotten the goal was achieved after the third wave of sanctions hit russia the tensions between the two countries skyrocketed so the question presents itself are we truly witnessing the beginning of cold war two point zero and if so what are our chances to survive at this time. in one thousand nine hundred seven the bulletin of atomic scientists introduce the doomsday clock. it represents a countdown to global nuclear annihilation. in one thousand nine hundred. the
three during the height of the cold war it came its closest to midnight as the superpowers were creating massive nuclear arsenal spent most ari of america's ever expanding atomic weapons program as the world began to grasp the insane danger of nuclear warfare and took measures to control the arms race the situation steadily improved. in one thousand nine hundred one the doomsday clock was at its furthest from midnight seventeen minutes. the time of hope was short lived though as the world has become more and more unstable. but in two thousand and fifteen the bulletin of atomic scientists moved the clock to just three minutes to midnight stay on check to climate change in a nuclear arms race resulting from modernization of huge ourselves pose extraordinary and undeniable threats to the continued existence of humanity. the
united states and russia have embarked on massive programs to modernize their nuclear arsenals. undermining the existing nuclear weapons treaties. and. the clock ticks now at just three minutes to midnight because international leaders are failing to perform their most important duty ensuring and preserving the health and vitality of human civilization.
carol. the united states has always had a right to its new news and it's been attacks on other countries. economic sanctions are are often just the beginning another thing you like to do is play some military press around the country is a teacher talking about. and there has to be an effort to demonize that country and the leader of that country because. the i have a responsibility for the whole. an affiliate to make rules for the rest of.
us without us there would be chaos. ten people being killed and ten others injured after a student i'm pretty fun at a texas high school. over the russians five dollars to hospital in the u.k. ten weeks he was poisoned by nerve agent. and russian president vladimir putin hosts the meeting with german chancellor i'm going to move a cold with the iran nuclear deal at the top of the h.s. . the latest on these stories had to come otherwise and stay with us for the big picture. of.
what happens in vegas won't stay in vegas want to bet and will we be seeing odds alongside balls and strikes on stadium scoreboards but first net neutrality lives and this white hot issue just change the game for house republicans seeking reelection holland cook in washington you're watching the big picture on r t america. this week the united states senate voted to express disapproval of the f.c.c. vote to kill the twenty fifteen net neutrality rules which in a nutshell prohibit your internet service provider from blocking content throttling back your speed or creating preferential high speed lanes and this isn't just about how you get on line and how much you pay to be there here's massachusetts democrat
ed markey who collected the signatures needed to. that floor vote but net neutrality isn't just an economic issue it's also central to the health of our democracy over the past several months and years americans all over the country from all walks of life have mobilized and march fighting for progress and change black lives matter the woman's march to me to movement high school students demanding gun control teachers calling for fair pay today citizens of all walks of life carrying the torch of american activism and doing it on line and republican john thune of south dakota urged his side of the aisle to pass legislation that's the best way to to solve this not to come up with this bizarre exercise which we all know isn't going anywhere but will allow the activists in
the donors out there on the far left an opportunity now to take this campaign to the house of representatives where it isn't going anywhere and of course it would be vetoed by the president even if it did but when the votes were counted and with john mccain absent three republicans voted yes. what next for net neutrality let's ask krista cox director of public policy initiatives at the association of research libraries and brian reed back marketing director at the american sustainable business council welcome thank you krista to senator marquees point this isn't just about dollars and cents talk about how the noncommercial importance of equal access plays out so well so often in the debate around net neutrality athene as a debate between the big internet service providers and the the edge provider
companies but what we're missing here is the voice of libraries researchers students who depend on an open internet access did a thin information online it is critical to the mission of libraries to disseminate information that is the core value inquire mission of libraries and education is to provide been an acquittal access to information and without an open internet if you're forcing people to pay. to prioritize their content then you're losing that noncommercial voice when the web first came about i thought is this obsolete the library but no it's the opposite it's the ultimate biblio right absolutely the internet has really expanded the reach of libraries it has allowed for a lot of innovation by libraries libraries builds the information pot forms that are that are that are used by commercial and non commercial partners for example
the national library of medicine is the largest medical library in the world and they receive you know ten tons of information and stay that the upload to their site they add value by period by linking it with other information in their database and they provide access to four point eight million journals in public and some. for the public to access for researchers and students to access ryan the f.c.c. chairman was sulking tonight calls that title to net neutrality heavy handed he says leave it to the marketplace is that good for the marketplace i would challenge that definition actually title two actually has a long conservative history from its founding and the rules were working very well of two thousand and fifteen and i didn't see a lot of complaints from any companies in the economy besides eighty and t. verizon comcast major ice pieces so we actually feel that giving them this extra
level of control when expansion isn't hindered the doing just fine they're doing an important service that everyone needs that we just need to give them any more of that so i think heavy handed would actually be giving these big incumbent a species more control and choosing winners and losers rather than what we have now right ryan and mcchrystal in that order republicans accuse the dems seeking to preserve net neutrality is fear mongering fair or unfair. i think that's unfair and i think it'll take a little bit of time before we see the cable companies take advantage of this new power because they know there's all this grassroots pressure and business pressure now so what they want is for all of us to forget about this for a little while here and for everyone to calm down and then we'll start to see the slower speeds the higher fees favoring of bigger players over the little guys and all that kind of stuff we're worried about chris to the skepticism is healthy isn't
it well i agree with what ryan said that you know it'll be a while before we see what the ice is actually do but i think we also have to remember that the d.c. circuit in. the f.c.c. case in twenty four it seemed said that they agreed with the absences finding that the highest piece had an economic incentive and the ability to you know do things. prioritization and sure into that right thing really can come up with any arguments and didn't really challenge that assertion ryan what really seems to animate those in favor of the existing net neutrality rules is fear that their speed is going to slow down and this isn't just about netflix and you tube there are economic consequences to businesses for slow loading internet content correct yeah there actually have been studies on this and just a second slower on your page loading time as a business trying to sell something online and compete in a fair marketplace with somebody like walmart or amazon those seconds are valuable
and you're losing huge percentages of your customers if they have to wait because they're just going to go somewhere else where the site was faster abandoned shopping carts for an absolutely i gotcha all right prediction time ryan and krista in that order what if anything do you think will change on june eleventh. day of i don't think we're going to see anything we'll see some gloating from the opposition and saying that the internet still here nothing's changed but hopefully we can still move forward and get the rules restored or else in a year or two i think we're going to be a lot worse shape for businesses and consumers like this could be tied up in the courts for a while anyway absolutely i think that if that if the house does not act on theory a we have to look to the courts to fix this problem and overturn the essences decision that's being arbitrary and capricious. krista cox from the association of
research libraries ryan ray back from the american sustainable business council thank you for stepping into the big picture thank you. regardless of what does or doesn't change on june eleventh this issue looms large over november elections so let's bring in conservative radio and t.v. commentator steve malzberg who joins us from our t's bustling new york bureau steve welcome great to be here hala steve with a republican house majority and a president eager to undo his predecessor's work this story is now less about technology than politics d.-a think the public outcry that those three g.o.p. senators heard has now become a hot potato for house republican candidates in november well you know nancy pelosi and chuck schumer they had a joint announcement that this is going to be a major issue for the midterms that's the democrats' strategy and you're right i mean the polls overwhelmingly show that the public you know wants net neutrality
that's because they don't understand it just sounds good but they don't understand the issue having said that you know if we get the senate passing it with those three republicans if the debt if the democrats get twenty five republicans in the house. for a petition they could get a floor vote there and they could possibly you know get net neutrality passed back in the house and then the president would not sign it having said all this though hollande i don't think people are going to vote in november on net neutrality i mean unless they're having personal problems of their own on their internet or their phone bills or their you know they have their internet provider whatever unless they have in some major problems i just don't see them saying all wow you know this is this this is get me to the polls i think it's another democrat fantasy well even if things do change their mind to change instantly but even before this senate vote states were taking action montana.
