11:33 am
lands. and they have their reasons. the status of the russian language in ukraine has been a stumbling block for many years implementing russian nasa second state language was one of the main campaign promises of president bush in a full day in two thousand and twelve the government passed a law making it the second official language in the southern and eastern parts of ukraine the areas where the russian speaking population makes up a majority ukrainian nationalist groups initiated massive protests opposing the law and observing viewer might see some familiar faces there but. i bought it last. on february twenty third two thousand and fourteen the very next day after the regime change the new government voted for a no meant of the official status of the russian language and even though later this decision was vetoed by the acting president. alexander turchynov still sent
11:34 am
a message and a powerful one this alarmed the russian speaking cities of eastern ukraine and people took to the streets to show their disagreement was in response it's conducted their own demonstrations when the two parties would meet it was always tense and eventually it led to tragedy. one person died and over fifty people were wounded in clashes during a pro russian march protesting the new government in kiev. on april sixth the crimean scenario began repeating eastern ukraine where protesters seized government buildings. and the next day april seventh they proclaimed don't yet see people's republic kiev replied by announcing the beginning of an anti-terrorist operation in eastern ukraine. by that
11:35 am
time the international media was screaming about a russian invasion in ukraine russia could now be on the verge of invading ukraine but strong words state only in the media the ukrainian authorities never announced a war like situation why i.m.f. cannot give money to countries engaged in ongoing war that's roboto shango. when you go to your show will go to too much money was already invested in ukraine to stop halfway had invested over five billion dollars to assist ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic she trains. mccarthy writes in a city you know well it will slowly new democracy just go it is among. the with. some of them but obviously the funds had to keep coming in the conflict had to keep going if. it were a. more bloody and deadly. as parties from
11:36 am
both sides were using more sophisticated and lethal weapons. and that's why you know what. i need is the new deal. union that's really kind of. the world seem too busy 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
11:37 am
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
11:38 am
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. law. 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 encampments where they attacked. the end time mind on protesters sought shelter in the trade union house but it was a track 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. fire station was less than a mile away it took almost half an hour for firefighters to arrive when they
11:39 am
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 on be 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 this it but lots of see just put it. 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
11:40 am
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 which i. really cute. it looks like a desa really is a very important piece of real estate as it was on with a very special new governor appointed on may thirtieth of two thousand and fifteen . really an old friend of the united states and born and raised in ukraine. neighboring country ga. ga a quick look at his biography gives one an understanding that he's been groomed for a special mission. mr saakashvili received a u.s. state department scholarship and he worked for
11:41 am
a new york law firm which represented the organization. a group that appeared earlier when we learned about the color revolutions. with democratic blood listen this is the revolution of roses and this is saakashvili with camara busy overthrowing the legitimately elected president eduard shevardnadze. soon after the rose revolution foley georgia announced its intentions to join nato and plant fresh nato military bases in the fertile soil right on russia's border never ever with 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
11:42 am
force. the people's discontent. saakashvili party lost parliamentary elections and the opposition took control this means that. the president. decided not to wait for the results of the president's election and fled the country in october two thousand and thirteen. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. race. also a spearing dramatic development only silly and going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk.
11:43 am
with the lawmakers manufactured to sentence to the public will. when the ruling classes project themselves. with the final clearing go around listen to the one percent of. the time we can all middle of the room sick. in the real news room. we set off the face of the years from the track and. if these islands are off today but the reality is there may still be a shit and. have it in this fine layer of micro plastics why see you bury.
11:44 am
the biggest thing and shut the found we've never had an empty. like the contents of the something of an albatross. people obviously come in they just throw them into the water as disposal it may not be harmful for that little fish that eats one fragment a classic but once it makes its way up to us in the food chain it's getting to levels that are harmful. i happen to be argued in there for me to understand whatever. the p.m.c. the premier or small contractor who won the award the p.m.c. that came here was a contract to train a unit and to create there from scratch and then to go into combat and the g.p. limited objective.
11:45 am
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 embezzle. saakashvili wound up in the us 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. then the suggest others gordon could have done in the way explored that road in the cecil. gordon would have done in the way explored that road. as they say the battle is worth the blood both literally and figuratively. crassness now do i not somebody affordable by the us out reading your
11:46 am
paper question is now tossed off on me on no cranium as someone dear to chester but i like the cut on those nasty she's 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 and the old last administration is delivering results. you're going to see a steady flow of embassy in 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.
11:47 am
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. and then other mothers called us and alicia lucia presents. it up as the bully walk as kind of being it's just. them leave. even though there's a. when you're still there cut the hook but the least of those three is if i did it with you but i'd have to stand on the. void their business to make sure they would get enough out of this on. just in the but how they should put it in the next year it's just a little bonus they were able to contain such. a war once launched doesn't choose its victims we are just learning at this hour that
11:48 am
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 accident that is happening because
11:49 am
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 usually so just to put up a national initiative just as it's a question to keep. 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 justified. either 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
11:50 am
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. 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 nine hundred eighty 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 that is itself a flight m.h. seventy crashed because we have three well for. the today it is our
11:51 am
side of the airplane the best the left side of the cockpit 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 missiles day conducted its own independent investigation. that they speeded me up the fullest. lou with adele and. be nice to them during the experiment they blew up a retired airliner with a missile and came to the conclusion that the malaysian plane was brought down by the older two. 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. one would expect that these controversial results would again stir up public interest in the investigation but
11:52 am
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 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 nine hundred fifty
11:53 am
three during the height of the cold war it came its closest to midnight as the superpowers were creating massive nuclear arsenal this story 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 nine hundred ninety 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 signed. ists 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 arsenals pose extraordinary and undeniable threats to the continued existence of humanity. the
11:54 am
united states and russia have embarked on massive programs to modernize their nuclear arsenals. undermining the existing nuclear weapons treaties. 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.
