a few years to gain further recognition but with protection provided by most and with new development opportunities for people in. this waiting period doesn't seem to be a problem then as the r.t. . russia plans to launch all its spacecraft for a new from a new cosmodrome in the country's far east overplays the current arrangements of using the bay said by canoe in kazakhstan the fast mile and flights are expected to takeoff from the new eight hundred million dollars signed by twenty eighteen and space analyst says it's a strategic move in more ways than one. i believe one of the reasons why russia decided to build its launch in the far east is. to contribute to the economic social and technological development of the far eastern region of russia and besides if you look at all the future launch but you will see that it is relatively close to equate the well as close as it could be and the closer the

6:16 pm
by washington and reading a statement from her husband while said he has no chance of a fair trial in the u.s. now at least because of hostile american media coverage where his nickname the merchant of death more scarce as the case is political and has been seeking his return to russia says one cults court of appeal over a week ago ordered his extradition to leave us the trial and investigative journalist daniel a student says the case has turned into a political. i spend quite a bit of time in thailand researching the story and entering bits of wood extensively over sixty times for hundreds of hours in prison in quality i also had access to intelligence and trying to organise officers a very high level told me that in fact the whole thing was already done before it started in the sense that you know the thai court of for instance was going to rule in favor who would look actually the book was going to win the case and the appeals court was going to rule in boards against victor wood so that nobody could say that
6:17 pm
it was askew decision that nobody could say that the americans paid the thais everybody would say it was one for blood one would for the americans except that the appeals court decision was the final decision because unfortunately there was no appeals to the supreme court as far as the four was of sort of a war against borders basically a war against russia if you can destroy the board and you can prove that he's a virtual earth and obviously he has to get his arms from somewhere and that someone has to be rational so you destroy russia's credibility in the international community i think is chance of winning the case in those states of zero point zero zero experience states have spent fifteen years trying allegedly to. to catch an alleged gun runner but that it was a coup they spent two and a half years trying to win the extradition case and a victory would actually set to the united states to think that he can win in the united states against america on their home turf when everything is against them so that in the end if you walks and goals hold america will become a laughing stock of the entire world not to mention that whatever little credibility they have as a nation will definitely be ruined. investigative journalist danielle is still in
6:18 pm

6:19 pm
no one is safe just one ordinary mosquito is enough to put a life in danger hundreds involved region have been hospitalized with the worst. initial symptoms include high temperature headaches and nausea followed by seizures unconsciousness and. the situation is grave it has been an unusually cold summer which allows mosquitoes to build up a high level of the virus there is nothing we can do to totally wipe out this interaction. has survived infection but his central nervous system has been damaged he has problems remembering his age and address. i was cured when i felt myself slipping away i don't remember how the ambulance brought me here. but at least he's alive several have died already if only we had realised what the seam times were and that we needed to get her to hospital she might have survived my mother. it was
6:20 pm
a strong and healthy one. the worst virus is transmitted by mosquitoes in fact both birds and humans although traditionally a mediterranean disease has been aggressively spreading through europe and america the first break in volgograd was recorded only eleven years ago this year already seen the highest number of cases. i've just heard about it on the news i'm terrified. i don't know anybody who's died from it i reckon i'm not in danger authorities are warning people against complacency and avoid to use mosquito repellent and cover as much exposed skin as possible to avoid bites doctors say the worst season has lost big and bold claim many more victims before leveling off in october. dozens of iraqis have been killed in a way we're tired but it does this week this surge in violence comes just after the u.s.
6:21 pm
completed its withdrawal of combat troops from the country however around fifty thousand american soldiers will remain in iraq to provide training and support for local security forces critics say the recent violence raises questions over whether the government in baghdad can deal with the ongoing insurgency in the country despite president obama's pledge that iraq's we are ready to chart its own course and our towel to our north association says that exclude it will be part of a plot to prevent the u.s. from leaving. but there are a variety of reasons why it should happen and various theories but one of the i think one of the more credible one is that the government is actually involve itself in it in order to prevent americans from pulling out or at least the troops they believe they must be in military and use of force not just training as it was claimed by the american people are talking about forming a government whether it's
6:22 pm
a law you whether it's mikey and what have you that is really not the situation in iraq has been dismantled there is no government there is no authority in iraq the prime minister cannot leave the green zone there is no military or police in iraq because they are all militias who have been recruited to wear the same uniform but that allegiance is not a national one but their allegiance either to their faction or to their group or to their tribe. and to with u.s. combat troops now out of iraq some are wondering if the real battle in the country is only just beginning resident reporter on the streets of new york your whole finance types been asking whether american forces were in iraq for the right reasons in the first place. the war in iraq is it over or has it only just begun this week let's talk about that. war's just begun it's iran then iraq the sunni and the shiites the whole
6:23 pm
region is going to be it's blown up it's going to get worse so do the troops need to stay back. that's a very thorny issue because the troops there has to be some presence their best case is if we could you know stabilize the country and then pull out but if we i don't know if that's possible so at this point we should probably just pull out you know i think we don't we can and it's it's up to them at this point i think there's going to be problems are going to be more bombings once maybe but at one point they've got to take over for themselves so why was it ever i best missed a thing or was we should never been there so they went in the hands of the oil and . now the civilians are suffering from and they have to make sure. that that's it's going to be ok again for the civilians that they can trust each other again and trust america now that they've done this so so we went in for the
6:24 pm
wrong reasons but we should stay there for the right reason exactly what happened if all of a sudden we did pull everybody out do you think i think they're so we have problems but then responsible we're not responsible for them. you don't think we're responsible for causing any of the trouble number no i don't we just went in there and i don't know why we went there and you know but i don't think it's our problem telling them what to do if that's not the goal i don't believe but trying to get the people on their feet it will with a stable government and security for the people i think is an important role yeah yeah it doesn't seem like they can do it on their own i don't know issue have a lot of date to use to. decide when and how to get it back that's a good point because many people have strong opinions but they don't have all the information about it yeah ok i guess that is very.
6:25 pm
the bottom line is that it's going to take a good amount of time so many troops out of anyplace so we're expecting u.s. troops out of iraq any time you're bound to be disappointed but it's right or wrong . and how brief look at some other international news stories thousands of indonesians are spending the night in refugee council after a volcano on the island of sumatra erupted for the first time in four centuries the red cross says over sixteen thousand people fled their homes as smoke and ash fifteen hundred meters into the air at least one person has died due to breathing difficulties as the every remains covered in a grey dust cloud a state of emergency has been declared in the region the volcanic activity has begun to subside. and renee isn't cheating or working on an alternative plan to rescue search a three miners stuck underground after the collapse of
