ten year long soviet military complain kill soldiers that's why russia is keen to take the lead in fighting the threat every third person who dies of opiate abuse is in russia and the politics feels another worldwide evil terrorism and this is what also really touches russia's iran. russia may not be directly involved in the war in afghanistan but it is sensitive to the instability of the conflict is causing in the region and many believe the two main security threats drug trafficking and islamic radicalism will not be defeated while needles afghan war rages on their current region is a very important you know as americans and european allies have failed in solving the problem i think russia now can contribute very much and rushed. the president has taken a very prudent approach it seems he tries to solve the problem in complex he tried

to talk directly to the leaders of all those conscious and involved so russia seeks political solutions. very reassured his neighbors alongside the police who will welcome financial support russia's already written the last portion of afghanistan's debt the final chunk of twelve billion dollars and more help will come in the form of helicopters and other military hardware securing poorest borders seems from the outside a mission impossible but by bringing the poor neighbors of this troubled region together russia is keen to show it is a new mood to give up the fight weeks in the crash of r r t from sochi it was a big day for iran when it switched on its first nuclear energy plant in the southern city of bashir the russian reactor is now operating under the strict control watchdog and the international concerns of a toronto aspirations. was at the long awaited grand opening. more than

4:12 am
started at a time i appeal court has made this political decision but according to the information we have this ruling was made under very strong outside pressure and this is upsetting as to the interests of this russian citizen we've been assisting him for all these months we've been in touch with his lawyers in this family and will continue to do our best to get him returned to his homeland and now the question everyone is asking is what does victor boot know to make the americans want him this badly victor board is a walking intelligence treasure trove has a phenomenal phenomenal photographic memory and there are several results why is the u.s. intelligence community or so keen on getting him to the united states first they tried to recruit him made several approaches to recruit here a few years all villages sticks of legal and illegal arms supplies all around the world and because what knows too much he is more dangerous than we kill eggs. for

4:16 am
was glad when it rained heavy rain i thought it would be cooler outside unless people in the cafe just said if the weather didn't change in the next hour we could all go home ten minutes later i was picking him from under the rubble of the cafe. it all happened quickly as if something really big moving at high speed foul from the sky a car stuffed with explosives parked near the cafe blew up leaving many people injured and a huge hole where mika's cafe wants to. go and all that and i was on the phone that's what my left ear is ok i started shouting because my is part i didn't have any thoughts until i got up and saw the car in pieces then i turned back and saw no one where there should be people so as if on auto pilot i went to help them out that's it i had to return to the scene later to shut off the gas to prevent another explosion has just left hospital and returned to the scene he's reluctant to be
4:17 am
alone and wants someone close to him while we talk this area still sealed by police has become a meeting point for the survivors see i've got bruises here in there and you're right i say ok i was sitting with my back to the chair i can get one dreadful moment of my mind there was a guy he lost one eye in the blast and they gave him a cloth be covered his face and then he wanted to look at the cloth he couldn't and panicked with these stories are stored in their memories for good lucky to be alive . two friends in retelling after a detail the day. i saw me kind of three to four minutes after the explosion he was a laurie fine time i saw him from behind and he didn't know how badly he was injured i went to the hospital and understood that the bruises are worse than what you. know me can use trying to mend his life and understand who was behind the explosion
4:18 am
much like many others in pianta groups he can't find any excuse for targeting the innocent and their reign they all hinged root these were the small things but after the explosion gave a new meaning to the people of p.r.t. course and as mike i mean support his friends give thanks to god for keeping him alive his biggest wish now is to leave the city so he can leave or for live thanks to what he claimed was divine intervention. of r r t. one of the suspected organizers of the deadly moscow metro blasts in march has been killed by russian security forces four other alleged militants were also shot dead in the special operations command is believed to have been in the there of one of the militant groups in russia's southern republic of douglas starr he was on the federal and international wanted list for over ten years is thought to close links to the suicide bomber reaper of who blew herself up at moscow's libyan connector

4:20 am
suspects he's being experimented upon. to get to me i had a pain in my abdomen they did all sorts of tests and gave me all sorts of pills to have in the morning afternoon and night but i haven't got any. account that they can test any medication they like on me. allegations have surfaced in the media that the hospital conducts illegal drug trials on patients police are investigating the complaint the hospital official say any trials are being conducted in accordance with government guidelines india is fast becoming a global hotspot for testing new drugs with two million people estimated to be taking part in clinical trials routes without their consent i don't know if you're doctors are increasing here because they cost just one sixth of what they do in the west the regulatory system here is comparatively corrupt inform the companies can easily register patients and begin trials in developed countries it would take six
4:21 am
months to register five patients whereas in india in the same time they could conduct trials on two thousand people. giving informed consent to be part of an experiment is the golden rule of all clinical trials but many patients here sign on the dotted line without understanding the nature and the consequences of what's being administered to them and they are americans or treaty indians as guinea pigs the patients being used for trials are really through pool they don't even know details of the drug that it is a drug trial this is unethical to repay. without proper consent without. taking part in a drugs trial it is both an infant and illegal alien patients sometimes sign up out of desperation to them experimental health care is better than none at all but agreed to let her child be treated with a new drug which she's been told will bring his fever down. to cheat ministry sound
4:22 am
happy with it. there are regulations in place to monitor drug trials including setting up takes committees and hospitals to ensure patient safety but these are often used by doctors to simply rubber stamp trials so. the ethics committee has the important responsibility of monitoring drug trials but it's a very ad hoc system that is misused for instance a medical institute in foreign women by gives permission for a drug trial in cities like indoor enjoyable tour how can you use permission from an ethical committee of another institute in another city to just define drug trials in an institute here. with over one thousand three hundred drug trials currently being conducted in india this industry is already said to be worth one billion dollars yet it's clear that the laws against unethical trials are not working and the government will have to come up with other ways to stop the country's poor from being enticed into medical experiments that could potentially

have serious side effects got unseeing r.t. in india. now after winning the right to host the two thousand and fourteen winter olympics in sochi russia is betting for another major sporting event this time cup fever inspectors spent four days in the country assessing its ability to host the tournament in twenty eighteen twenty twenty two among other bidders states and england decision will be announced on december second zurich but as i've been reports there's the possibility even potential stars of tomorrow motivation to train harder today. these boys football is their life they train every single day just twelve years old and if the world cup does come to russia in twenty eighteen the hopes and expectations of the nation resting on their shoulders pressure that would make
4:24 am
others of their age crumble but for the boys at spartak moscow is youth academy discipline and desire and more important it's not the fear of failure that drives them is the fear of missing the chance to play in a world cup on home turf they are so well received or struck me as i really want russia to host the twenty mile cap is my life's purpose if we keep working hard we have a good chance of making the team but the training's no walk in the park before they can even touch the ball they must endure a punishing nonstop fitness routine for the first hour but the coaches know the boys have talent but it's their hunger that's the key this man is no stranger to that he knows what it takes to play in a world cup. fit with a defender for the u.s.s.r. in the one nine hundred seventy championships drugs approach it was what i was gripped by a burning desire to see the world but how could i do that in those days so i told myself that i would be a football player i pledged that never in my life would i smoke
4:25 am
a cigarette or drink a gram of wine or beer you know he never had the chance to play in a world cup at home but he knows it's something not to be missed and visiting and playing in front of your own fans hearing the whole country support behind you is something you can't beat richard as a footballer you want nothing else i never got the chance but if these boys do very little change their lives was the bulls a matter of national pride in russia this is how the country reacted when the team reached the semifinals of the two thousand and eight european championship the. hope this supports the swings. the physics but some of. the most important thing is that it's a national sport which is loved in every city and village in this country were. found support here is something additional they just want more to cheer about you know winning this seat will help me over i see it there with the ball in the world cup at home would give to you to go which was an added impetus so that by two
