hailed by both sides as a very significant one with the russian president of course reiterating the fact that energy independence is one of the crucial points any country any state needs to become truly independent and a fully fledged player of the international arena in the twenty first century. the deal in the construction of the nuclear power plant is a major project. muttley few reach the goals we set this plant will account for vietnam's energy markets and we allowed to develop as a sovereign modern state that not only produces and processes oil but uses other sources of energy which is very important in today's world and of course this wasn't the only item on the agenda many other issues. were discussed many other deals were made including a deal to build a hydro power plant in the country as well a deal to exchange intelligence and intellectual information gathered.
in the framework of military cooperation that exists between moscow and a lot of issues of course on the agenda but the nuclear power plant deal is what both sides were mostly excited about as the vietnamese president himself said this is a very important deal that signifies not only the extent of russian vietnam's corporation but also the level of trust that exists between the two countries both our countries are eager to develop. a sector of the agreement on the construction of an atomic power plant and demonstrates the special ties we have with russia and of course to do shows how much confidence we have in the russian technology. continue working together in the industry both in russia and. the visit was a very pleasant one with the weather and everything playing along nicely to the russian president who was very keen to know that whether specifically saying that it reflects the state of relations between moscow and he also called. saying that
it was maybe a little too spicy for some russian taste but he personally enjoyed it a lot and of course this kind of banter this kind of light hearted talk just goes to show exactly how comfortable the russian and the vietnamese are together and how much emphasis they place on their relationship. i'll respond because unions are there and we can now discuss materials visits to vietnam and its implications with dmitri starts off an asia expert at moscow state university of international relations dimitri first off how important is this nuclear power deal for russia and yet now. well to my mind these deal is mutually beneficial for both sides and for russia is an important a landmark in its development in the in its relations with vietnam and with. and for vietnam these deal for me is a greater. independence in the villages fear and as well as
a. means for. reviving its traditional economic relations with russia. so i think that. the construction of atomic power plant in vietnam will over national interests of both countries for russia will it will be. an important and important step towards. more belies in the. potential of us for the sake of its own economic development and for it will be. very. very and an excellent. excellent step towards. an a g independence miter and i'm add at this point there is no commercial nuclear power plant in southeast asia. so how could this affect the
balance of economic power in the region. or will i think there. were no the most important features of these visit of president medvedev speech that. is the comeback of russia to the region in the various meanings of these words i mean. there is a revival of russians we cannot russia's economic positions in the sphere of energy in the sphere of. disaster prevention in this sphere of information exchange in the sphere of construction what is doctrine and so on and so forth so i think there. are these deals. should be considered as. a long term strategy of russia
towards building. corp a new cooperation in the region. and. as for these atomic blonde i know that it was built there the agreement over these atomic will over the construction of these atomic blunt. sharp competition with other countries. vietnam preferred russia shows that there is a revival of sorts of. relations between our two countries i don't think that. one can see here that russia's revival is fair now it's a premature to say that but it's a long way here to think i'm ok it's often a expert in moscow state university the national ations thanks very much indeed for your opinions here. are you watching r t live from moscow now in georgia and russia
could be one step away from a fresh spy scandal with reports tbilisi detained twenty people for alleged espionage and friday according to an anonymous source quoted by reuters the detainees are all georgian and are suspected of creating a spy network to gather secret information from moscow the georgian interior ministry has so far refused to comment and says it won't do so until the end of the week russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov said moscow is not aware of any details as there are no diplomatic relations between the two countries observers say the lack of clarification from tbilisi is an indictment of the authoritarian way the country is run. when someone is arrested they're entitled to due process that means they can call a lawyer that family members can be contacted therefore arrests are announced and it never happens i can't tell you how bizarre it is to hear a police spokesman say. i can neither confirm nor deny that arrests have taken
place in secret arrests are the hallmarks of a police state. you know there is a new law before the georgian parliament which is called the freedom charter and it's something akin to the patriot act in the united states it will drastically increase the powers of the security service it passed its first reading in the in the georgian part parliament recently and it is possible that someone was trying to whip up. a social mood to support that. now georgia's opposition politicians are also condemning the authorities actions of the country's conservative party of the year says any links to russia seem to be enough to bring in prosecution by the police leadership. in this period which is always used. i do not.
like you know to be. three zero. zero but if you. judge it's quite enough for. us to make. the georgian opposition leader there speaking from tbilisi. and all the way here in our team a few minutes it's frightening i get ready to find out how the celebrations halloween is celebrated in the russian capital. russia and the us are celebrating their first joint victory in a war in afghanistan opium trade on thursday their operatives destroyed four drug producing labs in the country and seized a ton of heroin afghan president hamid karzai has denounced the operation saying it violates his country's sovereignty but russian officials say they are puzzled by the statement as everything had been agreed with the afghan interior ministry in advance of
a drug raid marked every turn of russian special forces to afghanistan over twenty years after soviet troops left them for some the fact that moscow had to step in and give the us a push in the right direction came as a complete shock. and now reports. poured. this one verse one this one this one. and this one lost his leg. and you got a mush is showing his corporate skilled in the soviet war in afghanistan two decades ago only four out of the fourteen in this picture made it out a life under a was a command over mine disposal unit in kandahar in two years his school board lost thirty five people dozens of others lost limbs a third of all mines used against soviet soldiers were american made. the us or our enemy which supplied them with dean with equipment weapons medicine it
was american stinger missiles which helped shoot down our planes two decades after the soviet army is humiliating defeat and drake was taken aback to find out that russia was back in afghanistan again this time with its former anomie. these are the pictures he saw on the news reports food truck producing laps on the border between afghanistan and pakistan were destroyed in a special rate and a ton of heroin worth over two hundred million dollars. after we gave information to our u.s. and afghan partners the three sides planned the operation for three months we used about seventy special forces units three landing helicopters and six supporting ones the whole operation lasted less than four hours. but many experts say washington needed a push before it started to act it's unbelievable to me that it took russia to tell
the united states where the drug labs were when we have a hundred thousand troops we've spent eighty billion dollars on intelligence we have one hundred thousand additional contractors so we had to know were crawling all over every inch of that country but it took you know two in fact to out the united states to force us and to embarrass us to cooperate with you to stop the drug trade which is in the interest of the entire world including the united states with more of the drug passing through its food has than any other country russia is convinced that the scan which must be confronted at its source however those who know first hand what fighting in afghanistan is like learning against being drawn into a full scale war because. of course there should be special operations carried out against drug cartels but again special unit should be in charge of this nineteen year old boys should not be recruited for the job every single operation should be
planned in detail starting from the intelligence section of the operation itself and wrapping it all up it's easy to get trapped in this war and hard to get out of it and remember it. as long as islamised militancy and drunks emanating from of ghana's stand are seen as a threat to its national security russia is likely to remain a force in the region even as the u.s. works out an x. it strategy. faced with big worries less reliable neighbors say the region the united states and nato appear willing to accept growing russian influence at this point they need all the help they can get at the gathering florrie opportunity in afghanistan is a sign russia is back and this time around not as the u.s. cold war anime but as a more didn't say ally it's in the trouble r t. on the way for you here in r t brazil looks for a new leader as
a president with record breaking popularity bounce as we hear from the communities being lifted out of poverty. and iraqi lawmakers are demanding their government investigate allegations of war crimes the plea comes a week after the online whistleblower weaken leaks released four hundred thousand secret u.s. documents on the war in iraq the files detail american forces handing prisoners over to iraqi interrogators despite overwhelming evidence of torture the data also sheds light of fifteen thousand killings over the past six years which were previously on account of for iraq's prime minister nuri al maliki says the revelations are aimed at undermining the country's political stability but that's an overreaction and unlikely motivation for the leak according to one being expert on the country. but i think that would be very doubtful to imagine the wiki leaks the soldiers responsible for giving these documents to them have the undermining of the iraqi government in mind when they chose this date and let's bear in mind that
there hasn't been an iraqi government for seven months so. many dates to choose from when it comes to releasing this in this sense this is u.s. military documents so it's really like unlike any previous media story. to report from iraq this is words from their own mouth which makes it very difficult for them to deny it and they're not really doing that if you actually listen to what the pentagon and state department spokesman is saying what they talk about is the critical nature. of the nature of the leaks and whether us soldiers or informers or people working with us will be put in danger by them they're talking about the method of the message rather than the message itself now the message itself paints a very different picture of the iraq the americans have been telling us about the last seven years some fifteen thousand iraqi deaths have not been accounted for so the history of iraq is being written by these documents which are as i say from the americans miles themselves staying in iraq saddam hussein's former deputy was sentenced to death this week tariq aziz was found guilty by the country's high
court of persecuting opposition shiite islamic parties the decision to hang as easy as seventy four has drawn much international condemnation and some experts view the sentence as an attempt to divert attention away from the we can leaks revelations british m.p. jeremy corbyn is among the critics of the trial the reason they're doing it now correct on this is to divert attention away from the wiki leaks issue because wiki leaks if exposed to torture that has gone on systematically and i think the death sentence pronounced for the territory is to divert attention policy absolutely no point in this form of victor's justice being carried out will do nothing to reconcile people in iraq i think what we need is a real investigation into the behavior of the occupying forces and the iraqi army and its forces ever since the invasion of two thousand and three counsel the death penalty abandon the whole idea of the death penalty and instead look at the issues of human rights and justice look at the behavior of forces ever since the invasion
took place i do not see the value in executing terakhir disease any more than executing anybody else it will not bring the dead back it will further brutalise what is already a very brutal situation the death penalty does not work. now there was a british m.p. jeremy corbyn there and we are on top of that story line for you at archie dot com as well as more analysis of the fallout from the weekly it's revelations. also on the web side reaching for the stars of moscow based company let's aspiring pilots fly a plane without actually hitting the ground. and he may be a comedian but he has just been voted the most trusted man in america find out more .

he must have been using this knife to kill russians i stepped into ice given pasta to my three friends each night him stabbings account for almost half of the homicides carried out by youngsters in the european and central asian region according to a report by the world health organization and it puts russia with the highest rate of violence among the surveyed age group from ten to twenty nine. a change in psychology morale didn't even moral values all this contributes to an extremely high crime rate went up by the activities of religious sex and i'm sorry to say this by all media including television which stories full of blood in russia around five thousand seven hundred miners are currently serving prison terms the majority are either from a one parent family or an orphanage experts say about eighty percent of syria's juvenile crimes take place in the evening or night when children in theory are
supposed to be looked after by their parents however in reality many children often end up on the streets searching for their own entertainment. and that's primarily alcohol which is fueling so much of today's youth crime this iteration among minus is actually slowly improving for grim statistics among those who are of age takes for itself while many of these young boys hope they will be able to survive crime free in the future it may be down to those on the other side of the barbed wire to ensure they don't become another those generation dairy bush r.t. moscow. well not take a look at some other stories from around the world and turkish media has reported that fifteen people have injured after an explosion in istanbul is main square the blast happened near a spot where riot police were stationed in case of demonstrations you're looking at a live picture there and the cause of the blast is unclear but it's suspected it

at stake are the hearts and minds of the country's millions who live well below the poverty line and who say president lula was giving them a better life so he served his maximum terms but has lined up a successor lauren lister reports from sao paolo where the gap between rich and poor is narrowing. in brazil there are those who live tucked away behind barbed wire walls. and those who live behind shanty cinderblock ones brazil is a rich country but the majority is poor guarded gates paved the road to that majority separating rich from poor and cementing the vast divide of inequality that in many ways is the story of latin america but in this developing nation and one of the fastest growing major economies in the world where they are pioneering deep water oil research and ethanol production for example signs of human development two marked by a before and after before outgoing president lula distil the took office and forgot
going to walk the people didn't recognise the poor today the rich are en route because the poor as poor as they were before people have the opportunity to think he's increased the job market civil construction for me and for others he's giving jobs to people who didn't have it after lula's eight years in office is a brazil where more than twenty million of the vast poor have been lifted out of poverty were jobs but really social policies are bringing inequality down income from the poorest in the country has grown eight percent a year while the richest has grown only one and a half brazil is part of a trend in latin america of countries that are electing leftist governments that are essentially redistributing wealth to the poor in neighborhoods like this in brazil you see that most evidently and their program called both the familiar. janina and her two daughters live together in one shared room about one hundred square feet in this for vela or slum she gets by on
a few odd jobs and she gets the equivalent of twenty four u.s. dollars a month from the government through both the familia and helps with food or sometimes i use it to pay a bill in return for both of familia cash to naina has to show the government that her daughter samantha gets her vaccinations and is in school and. at least eighty five percent of the time as a result and i thought most of all she's ten years old and she knows how to read how to write and everything she even knows how to use the computer samantha's life is one of learning an opportunity where once in a slum like this reaching her age meant dropping out of school to work and help the family on days those i worked when i was younger ten years old i was already a nanny i didn't have the means to study but a little government cash is helping to break that cycle and create a new one this is what i want them to said a lot so in the future they'll have a profession and they're not going to suffer like their parents suffered so i want them to study. at the same time the parents are suffering less
both the familia is responsible for a sixth of the reduction in poverty in brazil while it costs just a half percent of g.d.p. basically it's considered very cheap and efficient it's a model being transferred globally from mexico to new york city though by some accounts it still amounts to chump change. that reaches five dollars. solution for their lives but here you see how it's helped resiliency beyond their cinder block cities turned football playing fantasies. into goals these kids say of being doctors and teachers and we're here for the first time arguably in its history the walls separating rich from poor don't look so set in stone. or in leicester r t so paulo brazil scallions policeman pirates and nurses dancing together only at how when it's the
