we are highlighting the top stories all today and all of this week here on a hearty welcome to the program. well this week has seen a new scandal flaring up between russia and georgia as tbilisi said thirteen people were caught spying the from moscow russia claimed the whole story is a political fasts and deliberate provocation by the georgian authorities ahead of a nato summit and as artie's arena reports from tbilisi the opposition is considering the swoop to be another attack on the government's opponents. for alina this spy scandal was a horrible deja vu her own husband. was thrown into prison for allegedly spying for russia during the two thousand and eight conflict between georgia and south the city or. they said some three thousand time three hundred pages of data which my

husband supposedly sound to russia because that's a blatant lie we have presented evidence numerous times that on from asian with witchcraft and worked hard was just his analysis if you look at his case you'll see that it's easy to say that anyone's fine georgia is trumping. the lynas husband was george's envoy to nato he was named in the documentary just shown on one of george's main channels to as one of the russian spies who didn't get away in fact the film was just part of what seemed to be a spy novel unraveling in a small caucasus country over the past week thirst the news of the arrests that came suddenly and not from the authorities but through western news source then a week of silence after which the georgian interior ministry the announcement with much pomp and circumstance aspiring for years a work by the georgian counter-intelligence service amol invited into russia's
6:05 am
chief intelligence directorate so what is this latest spy scandal all about a political farce a desperate plea for attention or simply much ado about nothing moscow says it's a combination of all three and very say it won't do georgia any good mosco reacted almost immediately the saakashvili regime suffers from some chronic spine mania fueled by under russian sentiments in recent years the georgian leadership has resorted to fabricating similar scandals more than once cynically hoping to political dissidents inside the country and abroad some analysts believe the whole affair was an attempt to put pressure on. george's opposition their regime of circus really does not feel safe and they use any possible to again in their struggle against a position which still is not consolidated but is getting in power more and more.

nato's proposal for a joint european missile defense program when the alliances secretary general anders fogh rasmussen visited moscow this week the nato chief stressed that the alliance sees russia as a friend and partner as being an essential part of the regional stability the russian side has stated that the plan should be based on principles of the equal development of a system that would neutralize common threats the meetings comes ahead of a nato summit in lisbon on november the twenty years an expert in conflict resolution dmitri trenin told r.t. that a joint russia nato missile defense project could be a breakthrough for both sides. the secretary general is a champion of joint missile defense on russia's russian. corporation with nato on missile defense and he made that statement boy his first speech on
6:08 am
russia first major speech on any issue that he made. last year under the auspices of the carnegie endowment basically you need to realize that no amount of the strategic arms reduction in those limitations can transform the russian state the old russia western russia u.s. relations one needs to have as the teaching collaborative project and it looks like missile defense is the one thing the silver bullet the project that can and has the potential at least to transform the entire russian western relationship it's a game changer or fail to seize upon that it could be a game breaker. scandalous and hysterical is how russia view the temporary recall of the japanese ambassador from moscow the reaction followed president medvedev is a visit to the russian coup real islands which tokyo claims for itself and as aussies oksana boyko finds out moscow says that more visits are planned to promote
6:09 am
business development in that region. it's a leftover from the second world war old soviet tanks rusting on the shore it had barrels pointed toward japan there are about to be scrapped. when the visit by the russian president put them at the center of another fiery exchange between russia and japan discovered in the seventeenth century the audience changed hands several times to the soviet union lost in the month to expel the japanese army from the islands in all the stuff nineteen forty five that prevented the two countries from signing a peace treaty looking at door open for japan to claim the island seventy. sixty five years after their handover the tussle to define the islands national identity still goes on this cross appeared here and few years ago when the russian church parish and the island of she katon after decades of seeing its population window

the on and is now in the midst of a baby boom. we have the husband straight in the entire region there are many kids here and parents bring them to be baptized and livingston's it's a quite decent nowadays just a few hundred metres from the church at ikeja motor is teaching japanese at a local school in health class seven greater sit alongside their parents many of them getting a job and to fans is that best shot at lifting their families out of poverty most of our classes are very popular and people keep coming here year after year. sometimes it seems like and with my family again. this is precisely why the president came here to tell the locals that russia has not forgotten about them and while the regional officials tried to paint a pretty quick trip to roads and crumbling infrastructure betrayed the island's conic financial problems so it's important. we will definitely invest money into

the region. and the midst of rich fishing grounds on. a prime spot to buy seafood an opportunity that mutual advantage didn't miss the point is it is. ok to get some. well fish and seafood are affordable here everything else cost almost twice as much as on the mainland the locals complained of unreliable supply but as the president noticed one item was always talk of the county you don't have any problems with the supply and i'll call here to get the president's visit was a missed on the japanese side his foreign minister said the trip heard japanese public sentiment and temporarily recalled its ambassador from moscow. it is extremely regrettable that president medvedev visited the korea lyall and even though japan had earlier notified russia that there could be a negative impact on bilateral relations his russian counterpart was an. idiot
6:12 am
simple as that only japan's reaction isn't acceptable it's our land and russian president was visiting russian territory missions and was already explained this to were just a nice porkers sufficient lead to once again in a big risky retreat this position however we're not going to take any steps that would change relations while the russian officials consider last week's rout over the green line and unfortunately they stress that their first priority is to make sure that the people who actually believe on the islands aren't left feeling not wrong according to a two thousand and nine nationwide poll about ninety percent of russians would strongly object to handing the grill audience over to japan but the overwhelming majority of the respondents have never visited this territory and are very likely to do so in the future the audience may be an integral part of russia on the map but they cannot make clear and logistically they're still very much a foreign land some of boyko artists in russia's far east. and still to come for

6:14 am
c.c.t.v. footage was obtained showing two people attacking the journalist the assault has drawn a wide public response with many rallies in support of cash and taking place in moscow the russian president has personally commented on the case saying that those responsible must be found with the help of the country's best investigators. the former editor in chief of com a son says cautions writing may have been linked to the brutal assault of. fighting of course the reason for this attack is conscience professional activity he was a popular blogger and he was more open minded than in the paper common sense has a certain more reserved styles this beating is very similar to the attack on the journalist i think it'll be which took place a couple of years ago to this mission of his fingers for example so that the person who could not write any would there is a horror show element. to that the midterm elections in the united states were
6:15 am
a big blow. oh to obama's administration they're republicans rode a wave of public frustration to take the house of representatives unlike in previous elections there was no limit to how much big business could bankroll parties but critics say money decided the outcome not the american voter. this was a special election year in the us for the first time corporations were allowed to funnel as much money as they wanted into political campaigns and they definitely did not miss out on the chance to buy influence on capitol hill we've come to take our government by big business is pumped hundreds of millions of dollars into the pockets of the republican party that's now in charge of the house of representatives so what was at stake what they're hoping to do is bend the laws and regulations or prevent new laws and regulations from being approved they'll cut in their bottom lines the problem is that a lot of these rules and regulations exist for a purpose they're supposed to protect the public interest to watch corporate

6:17 am
corruption one definition of core option is the private to think of public party two years ago corporations supported obama knowing it was going to bail them out but now that he imposed tougher rules on the financial markets. and wants to increase taxes for the rich they're betting against this party really no fear mongering and constant attacks on obama were arguably the perpetrations the main cause for making things work their way and it wasn't hard with most americans on happy with the way economy works and with the unemployment rate at its worst in almost thirty years people are frustrated they're deeply frustrated with the pace of our economic recovery some corporate darling channels like fox news were especially good at channeling prostration. but many americans now fear their interest in being left down because of someone's special interests on the outside

this democracy is unusual with people coming to a polling station putting across the name of a candidate they like but in these elections with the influence of corporations on first it's also really has the vote in american mail is money going to shut down washington d.c. . you are with are coming up for you next hour judging in retrospect. i think you'll be like harry truman may take twenty years twenty years later i think you'll be looked upon as maybe decent president after two years out of the limelight george w. bush publishes his memoirs the resident checks out if people have any fond memories of him also in an hour. delivered to the hospital with no arms and a massive blood loss i woman dies after several days in a coma but who should take the blame when a dog's bite is worse than its bark. war has

a smuggler one hundred five dollars in iraq he will sell it in tehran for over four hundred of the profits appear amends to men who actually take the dangerous journey are paid a mere fifty dollars a night this is not work for those looking to make a fortune it is work for the poor uneducated and desperate. i do this because i'm a literate. so this is the only job i can do out of the rain is brutal in its approach to keep alcohol out a smuggler recently arrested and was sentenced to life others who have been wounded in police ambushes have been fined up to half a million dollars and then charge the price of the bullets that were shot at them with a mind they stepped on. we crossed the border and there are explosions shootings arrests or fights terrible nothing we can do because we have who are. not only is the job dangerous but the living conditions are bleak on the iraqi side of the small river that makes the border so it's

those who are desperate enough to do it sebastian my own party on the iran iraq border. russia has become a weapon to resupply to afghanistan as the first of sixteen planes delivered its cargo to the capital kabul on tuesday the weapons were given to afghanistan free of charge following an agreement between the two countries to fight militants and drug trafficking russia's defense minister and it's really sort of took off said it's possible that russian military experts will help to train afghan security forces our moscow has stated its troops are not returning to afghanistan despite earlier speculation but who is the director of the conventional arms program at a russian think tank says moscow's efforts in the region will help to slash drug problems. but going to start is a big threat not only. to all neighboring countries and to russia as

crew reaches the international space station as the world watches its arguably humanity's most them vicious engineering project to date a mixture of science technology and political cooperation between former sworn enemies. in the ten years since the i says has expanded to the size of a football field and received two hundred visitors well for a shock but at the before the i s s is a breakthrough corporation before there were separate space agencies now they work together with the it's a leap forward this station has cost the taxpayer one hundred billion dollars and that's just absurd it's too much but it's their money now admit they're not sure what to expect from the station and that includes the expedition one cosmonauts themselves you to get them going up trains but then shall i says crew members is own training was more chaotic than we're going to give them an edge when we started training for the station itself did not exist there were no manuals and there were
6:25 am
no exercise machines with the first crews job was to fully activate the station much of it had been assembled separately in russia in the united states and the first time these parts came together was and space of the militia would be the first two weeks on they were extremely stressful because if we failed we'd have to return to earth and abandon the station it would never have been constructed as planned expedition one was a success despite problems with construction following the columbia shuttle disaster three years later most of the modules were eventually successfully docked the completed space station provides a unique platform for experiments and weightlessness that could develop new materials and medicines starting real now and next year we're going to find out if you have researchers tinkering in space we can have breakthroughs if not the whole thing was a waste but others believe that the value of the i assess is not that in scientific discoveries its lifespan has already been extended to twenty twenty and possibly

beyond that if we're looking at projects of using that i assess as a docking port for missions to the moon and even mars. and if mankind does venture further afield i search will serve both as a blueprint and an instruction manual of space should do so and bones whatever its limitations and budget over and. the assess is important at the thought worth no longer seemed like everything was possible in space and there were no longer the cold war budgets to fund it all the i's still proves that space research can be right at the edge of human endeavor either of nerve i'll see moscow but the idea of eco friendly nuclear energy may have once seemed impossible but now scientists believe they found the fuel of the future doria is more abundant than you raney a man can create much more power artie discovers why it still has to gain though foothold in the market. we
