russia the u.s. strategic arms treaty passes a key test as it's approved for a full senate vote despite stiff opposition from some republicans. walls in moscow and alleged mafia bosses in intensive care after an attempt on his life right in the center of this city. we're coming to you live from moscow this is our welcome to the program. moscow is asking poland to extradite one of russia's most notorious terrorist suspects. was detained by poll published police upon arrival in the country he's wanted in russia in connection with atrocities in the north caucasus but currently has political asylum in the u.k. r.t.
is covering the us out of a brings us the latest developments. to tell the polish authorities polish police detained that that guy is on the morning of friday the seventeenth of september they are now. holding that questioning him waiting for documents to arrive from the russian prosecution the russian side of moore saying that they will do everything to make sure that the exhibition and the process should take place will be taking place in accordance with all the standards of the international law. as a polish prosecutor general has said the polish sides will act in accordance with international obligations it is taken upon itself mr sherman saturday quote our actions will not be based on political factors model letter of the law russia's prosecutor general yury cheika said that in the event of the extradition to russia his rise will be observed and he will stand a fact trial in court so the russian side is very much our hoping that the polish
side with their favor but of course both sides emphasize again that decision will be made to leave according to legal principles and standards of international law that no politics will be involved in the decision making process for all it doesn't matter all that interpol outstanding and all the rest for whether and why would bush exhibition last is yet to be seen russia force has been attempting to extradite the trial that's up by nearly a decade now so i wanted in two thousand and one first nationally and internationally and was granted. plus silence in the united kingdom around the same time keeping magistrates court later refused to extradite the man despite a number of charges here in russia that some very serious charges said that mr secretary should be tried will be facing charges of murder kidnapping and store
ships participating in terrorists and extremists to that he's russian prosecution say that they have enough evidence to link him to one of russia's terrifying terrorist attacks in the. theater seen it up to over two thousand and two they also believe to be one of the masterminds behind the current up arrest in the russia's fall in style caucasus region so very a long list of wrongdoing that russia police service does archive to be guilty of but of course the united kingdom has so far refused to extradite him saying that he is up political refugees and on its territory he remains a law abiding citizen first now with the wind in the fray as well it may be the polls that actually get to make the expedition decision and this of course will then be a whole new ball game. three miles out of our reporting well fred we're a journalist from the christian science monitor says the political situation in poland will not allow extradition to russia. pretty much sure that they will
not extradite him to russia you know. this is a situation where the poles are fulfilling their international obligations by executing this war it. but extradition is another matter and i don't think there are very many european countries that that would under the present circumstances extradite him or a lot of other people back to russia poland particularly among european countries is a place where it would be politically impossible i mean it would be politically impossible for any government polish government to to actually send him back to russia. now poland may appear reluctant to extradite. but the new warmer relations between the two countries do offer moscow hope in this case but that's according to viktor linnik editor in chief of the russian newspaper slow. given the fact that russia has treated poland there respectfully. some polish ones i would
say like the cartoon massacre of nineteen forty russia treated very spectrally the tragic crash of the presidential plane. last april and i think we have an improved climate in polish russian relationship and there's give this gives me hope that the matter will be precise pursued and proceeded legally and with respect to international for international law. you are with r.t. it's good to have your company today and still ahead a few this hour gangsters in the capital. an investigation is underway after i know which the notorious criminal lord was shot in the center of moscow we take you to the scene of the incident. plus from boom went to bust we look at the poverty that's hit america's recession battered industrial towns.
a us a senate panel has approved a nuclear arms reduction deal signed with russia in april the start treaty which now needs to be ratified by the full senate could see the countries reduce their stockpiles by a third while the u.s. president is urging lawmakers to speed up the process in-house issues could hamper ratification. reports the start treaty got the green light from the senate foreign affairs committee and is heading for the senate floor this treaty will make america more secure it will assist us in moving towards the goal of less nuclear threats and for that reason we're proud he actually took today it's been a bumpy ride five months of hearings and the resolution that the senators passed reflects that they put all their concerns in one package among them. the time between offensive and defensive weapons senator is clarifying the treaty in no way
is an obstacle for the u.s. plans to deploy defense systems american officials see it the same way it commits us to continue to develop the ability to be able to protect our people and to have a robust missile defense system but russians do take the time mentioned in the treaty quite seriously they see the new start as an agreement based on equality and balanced and if that balance is shifted or disturbed they say they can pull out but some in washington say there are hurdles related to the ratification are not so much about the details of the treaty but about republicans trying to make a point to the democrats one of the problems is good old fashioned red meat politics the republicans don't you just can't resist this opportunity to say well you know the democrats are weak on national security and that's one of the real barriers that the obama administration faces here i have no doubt whatsoever
if we had a republican administration this this treaty would be already radical the paradox is that the number of republicans who had testified for the treaty outnumbers democrats on top of that the u.s. military officials are unanimous in their support of the deal something that many experts are pointing out here senators ten express their concerns but they can't really change the trading they can either ratify it or not and judging by what senators were saying this thursday they surely will the question is when i'm going to check out our reporting from washington d.c. . well the start treaty could go a long way in helping to modernize and improve nuclear defense that's the opinion of gary hart a former u.s. senator and a member of the commission on u.s. policy towards russia. it's a large step it will get rid of dangerous unnecessary nuclear weapons on both sides at the end of the day there will be
a vote on the treaty people will have to vote for it or against it and those who vote against it are going to have to justify why they voted against it and why it makes us more secure not to have a treaty then if we have the treaty if you replace. warheads or delivery systems that are old and increasingly unstable with a newer generation more secure technology you are actually improving security rather than endangering it so a limited argument can be made for modernization of nuclear arsenals certainly not expansion of them if we are serious about hermetic reductions in these nuclear arsenals then we widen the club and bring in all the nuclear powers and say enough we're all we're going to get rid of all these it does seem like. a kind of ideal dream but it is a goal to reach for now you can watch the full interview with gary hart former
american senate's co-chair of the commission on u.s. policy towards russia that is this sunday right here on oxy. a suspected russian criminal mastermind is being treated in a moscow hospital after an attempt on his life nicknamed the grandpas sun he is thought to have full and victim to a gangster wall right in the center of the capital you go to it's going off as mole from the crime scene. vincit in a happened at around eight pm moscow time on thursday evening when i slung also known as grandpa sun god to be a major criminal lord in russia i arrived at one of the buildings on sky street in the very center of moscow it's reported that he wanted to visit his son who lives here in the neighborhood and asked grandpa and his bodyguard were approaching the entrance to the building several shots were fired the bodyguard went down first and

holders of ruble currency should change macroeconomic conditions are quite stable the oil price is also quite stable the gold and foreign currency reserves are increasing and are quite sufficient to provide a stable exchange value of the ruble this opinion was fully supported by the president of russia's number two bank be to be on trade cost and he also commented on the new international banking rules agreed in baseball in switzerland. what basel three is now queenie that's approximately what they care in the rush hour the national family so they always were strict frankly speaking will always work completely also go back over their watch through stricter regulation in the west but now they're quite similar so i don't think we need any further step in this direction. i look at the markets now in europe minus cain after the rising copper and gold say it's not just under one percent of its japanese tax cuts.
