10:03 pm
ironically with his involvement in this cocker project the governor may actually make these plot a bit more plausible but at the end of the day he can always turn against the machines and save the world like in the second movie so i guess there's nothing to fear it's a boycott artsy skolkovo. and during his trip to moscow have a california governor compared russia to go live with his assessment is echoed by russia's finance minister aleksei could so stay tuned into the in about twenty minutes time in which a explains what's changed in russia and why it's not for investment. you know. with interest rates very low in the west it's possible that something only an emerging markets pressley where the ratio between profitability and reliability is optimal russia is showing exactly this thanks to the government's strict credit policy we have good four x. holdings which means we are not afraid of devaluation or default the country's budget balance is good so is the balance of payments in this respect we are very

10:06 pm
those parties have very similar political agendas they have every see very similar percentages all of the vote so we might still see a parliamentary stalemate in the country like the one we saw in ukraine when the country's parliament simply couldn't form a government is coalition well the security is situation was rather conjuring the elections and after the elections we have seen security tightened throughout the county police has been patrolling the streets for the past two days some experienced still believe that riots may take place later after it leaves elections and some experts have been saying that their lessons were rather sounds in the southern regions of the country where they have seen people being drugs from one polling station three in the other and forced to vote several times some were saying people were actually bribed to pay for specific political parties our film crew in the southern city of course has spoken to some of the ethnic uzbeks living

come a long ways in this country racism is prevalent sanders says families need to be prepared before they decide to adopt a child of color and once a child goes into african-american child goes into. a family that is caucasian that family is no longer a caucasian that family becomes a family of color at that point ok so the whole family dynamic changes it seems not a whole lot of adoptive parents in the u.s. are willing to change their family dynamics most want their adopted children to look more like them and the majority of parents willing to adopt in the united states are caucasian but almost half of the children available for adoption are black the report here says parents were willing to pay thirty eight thousand dollars more for a non african-american baby home of course and you very few look around your table and your guests are all of the same color and you shouldn't be adopting a child of a different color but race doesn't seem to be an issue for thousands of americans

fixing the deadline we have achieved positive results in our bilateral relations it appears to me that should this political will remain everything is possible in fact we lacked it which was the main factor we lacked in the last period of the bush administration now of the work has been transferred to geneva where we are facing much fewer questions so i believe there's a political will and a desire by all and it's left up to our ministries employees to complete everything does that mean most opticals are left behind and countries like georgia won't be a problem. with him is because of as you have said there are certain obstacles as yet which we are going to overcome gradually when i was mentioning we would have to have about four months to finalize the document so i do not consider an obstacle as result from georgia nothing threatens but we have to coordinate all the provisions of the customs union with all previously reached agreements on the show with all the countries inside the customs union we have agreed on the principles that it as
10:22 pm
of today we are taking our agreements with our partners the working group on the deputy zero as a basis and the a session will be based on to russia's terms so mainly technical questions remain so when i say i need to say the russian government announced that the shares of ten major stake companies will be put on sale well those shares me available to foreign investors. which has to do with certainly the privatization regime as public national scale except certain strategic enterprises of this list contains mainly oil companies apart from a number of others for which special procedures required at this point i can't tell you exactly what these are strictures will apply and for what companies as soon as a list of companies is published will specify them so who are sick and supremest from used so if the sale happens how will a fact russia succession into the wall trail and. strictly speak. these privatization issues are not within the deputy competence so this may not affect
10:23 pm
the session as a whole though with a positive if you taken of russia is created as a country open for investment in increasing the private sector shares major companies interests in russia's growing group let's just move away from the wall trade organization on the international monetary fund meeting this year you received the award as the best finance minister of the here and everyone is saying that russia coped with the financial global financial crisis better than expected how attractive is washing terms of foreign investments at this moment. to the heads of major financial organizations who i met with in the past three days are very keen on russia with interest rates very low in the west is possible that something only an emerging markets pressley where the ratio between profitability and reliability is optimal russia is showing exactly this thanks to the government's strict credit policy we have good four x. holdings which means we are not afraid of devaluation or defaults the country's

budget balance is good so is the balance of payments in this respect we are very attractive. there are a lot of discussions here in the west about about the level of government interference in the russian economy and that sort of one of the concerns that the west has to what question economy what is being done to reduce that that involvement of the government in the economy. first of all the interference of the state in the economy is a fact and we must see where and how it takes place the first major tears state involvement through stakes in major companies and corporations as privatization is underway selling major stakes will solve this issue which will soften fears second it's about state run regulating agencies including those that collect taxes issue licenses check the quality of production and norms the quality of state regulation needs to be improved and we missed this and all of us are working on that the new
10:25 pm
draft law on the police is meant to improve their work concerning taxes we have created a new package of laws on the quality of tax administration and responsibility of tax inspector employees probably. the main problem of russian economy today in your opinion at the institute. it's about the weakness of market and state power institutions and the quality of the ministry of state functions in other words excessive interference from the state insufficiently clear regulation within the tories administrative barriers lower competition the economy it's going official helps win a competition this is the main obstacle for further development because the knackery connery in the state finances are good. reasons now i know that finance later on this international monetary fund meeting we're discussing the so-called battles of crime say that you know we know that the us and. they complain

about china and some other countries deliberately undervalued their crisis to aid their exporters and this may lead to trade award. i haven't heard that how serious is that and where is russia standing on that matter. where they were and who are currently there's no battle of currencies it's very likely that it's more of an expectation that one day currencies will become a more serious tool in competition at the moment the best examples are the u.s. and china the situation there is unique but i don't think we can say that such a war is taking place in other parts of the world on the other hand you might say that some of the dispersion of distortions are forming in currencies for example some moves of the american side i mean influence currencies most likely there are fears that someday such a war will become more serious but i can say that the possibilities to play around with currencies are very insignificant or short term although china is the exception the country that goes beyond any rules it's conducting an aggressive
