it is r.t. here in moscow good to have you with us there is a possibility that a currency union between russia and the european union will be created that's a message from russian prime minister vladimir putin and german chancellor angela merkel who have pledged to strengthen economic ties between their countries. has more now from the german capital. judging by what we've heard today in berlin on friday russia and germany are continuing to move closer together an increasing and increasing cooperation which means russia and the european union are moving towards each other as well russia's prime minister vladimir putin and the german chancellor on go america will have been discussing joint ventures and projects in many years like energy and car making and other sectors joint projects joint investments both in business and science but even talked about the possibility of. currency union halls of course and that is something which is really far away at
3:01 pm
the moment hard to imagine right now but both of them have knowledged that this is something inevitable which would happen if they continue moving closer towards each other let's listen to what was going to put in i have to say mr fitzgibbon as for the currency union we all realize that it's a derivative of the putting the economies together and it depends on the level of the economy's development it has to become mature but on the whole i don't rule out such forms of cooperation between us in turn up until america has named to russia germany's an important partner and it's no wonder why since the total trade turnover between russia and germany this year has reached its peak around thirty six billion euros worth around here and things billion euros on its side so the cooperation is quite intense the prime minister person suggested having a free zone between europe and russia in the future and i agree with that and i
3:02 pm
think that russia and europe partners but of course they have to broaden and develop their potential so you just heard i'm going to talking about the idea of building this free trade zone from lisbon to avoid to us talk that was also discussed however the german chancellor also mentioned some of the ring. meaning problems in the relations between russia and germany russia and the european union for example the european union's concerns over russia's and kazakhstan's and bellows customs union. that has been discussed as well by going to put and has ensured that this will not hurt the relations between the european union and russia and russia succession into the organization which is also talked about it wasn't only just about business and serious topics and numbers and charts in fact. talked about the russian bid to host the two thousand and eighteen and two thousand
3:03 pm
and twenty two football world cups and actually said that he hopes germany will support russia's bids and will help russia get these busy just as the two will help each other overcome the consequences of the global economic crisis speaking at the business forum just previously in the day we also heard some of that alleging the humorous from what we were pushing let's listen to what he had to say when talking about quite a serious subject energy security in europe. a sort of german community doesn't like nuclear power and i don't want to make any comment. but i don't understand what you're going to use to he see you don't develop your nuclear power what are you going to use for i would say. that i suppose you'd have to get it from siberia too so.
3:04 pm
of course some humor there from what you know pollution but the topic is quite serious and judging by the current economic situation in europe some serious problems in greece portugal possibly spain and other states only by combining their efforts and working together again the european union specifically germany in this case and russia only by working together can they overcome the consequences of the economic. in crisis hit europe germany is the safest place mexico is economist and host of all of these kinds of reports believes the country is ready to emerge as the twenty first century superpower. you can't really make an economy based on real estate speculation ireland and spain greece they tried to make an economy based on this idea that you could flip palaces and you could create a ponzi scheme with loans and mortgages and it collapsed as a result of the global credit collapse germany on the other hand nobody in germany
3:05 pm
is taking out mortgages like this nobody is flipping houses in germany germany are savers germany are sound business people and as a result they are in a much better position now as a result going forward from this crisis the crisis is only adding to germany's ability to ultimately break away from the euro and compete head to head with china for competition in terms of being the twenty first century global superpower it will be germany and china the u.s. has gone the u.k. is long gone continental europe is outside of germany doesn't produce anything so you've got a reconstituted germany with their own central bank again their own currency and i predict the rise of germany again this is something that after world war two. was attempted could be outlawed but germany is back and of course germany has excellent relations with russia the russian leaders leadership speaks german the german
3:06 pm
leadership leadership speaks russian so there's a lot of a lot of talk there and we're talking about a complete reconfiguration of the global. money system. and that was max keiser economist and host of artie's kaiser report. well after months hurtling around the world in orbit a russian cosmonaut and two nasa astronauts have their feet firmly back on the ground after returning from the international space station and although the landing in kazakhstan was dubbed ideal the crew had to bite their lips before their trip to terra firma not in the telling of it has more now from star city the heart of russia's space program. russian veteran cosmonaut through the year in has now safely returned to the government center for training his colleagues from nasa and douglas we look back to the united states three members of the team will be undergoing after flight procedures for rehabilitation flights back to earth from
3:07 pm
the international space station took about three hours may nineteenth spacecraft land safely the mission is now complete and the crew feels good and is satisfied with the way it went landing. i congratulate everyone who contributed to the success of this project for you the chief and has all together spent a year in space and his colleagues from nasa sean and walker and douglas will or have spent about six months there each in their mission included a number of space walks and say to pick experiments and they in fact brought a container a refrigerator with the result of one hundred twenty scientific experience they conducted during their mission including by technical physics and chemical chemistry tests for this particular team there must have been him and the elements of extra stress before their departure because they witnessed their predecessors failing to undock from the international space station due to
3:08 pm
a technical difficulty with an automatic lock that connects the international space station and the so you spacecraft that delayed their return back to earth by twenty four hours nonetheless the previous team also one that safely but this team seemed to be rather optimistic about their return they even had a special thanksgiving dinner before they started getting ready to flying back to earth right now three more cosmonauts remain at the international space station and they're welcome there were waiting to welcome three more in the middle of december . well still to come this hour here in r.t. digging up the past. living in lithuania think local authorities are persecuting them by restricting men native language. that story still to come first joseph stalin was responsible for the mass killing of polish prisoners in western russia in one nine hundred forty russia's parliament has accepted the soviet leader ordered the cat in massacre that sowed relations between moscow more so for years but his country has never has the details. for decades the soviet union denied any
3:09 pm
responsibility in this atrocious crime for fifty two years the soviet union attempted to blame nazi forces for the killing of polish officers in the so-called cutting massacre that was in the 1940's when it nearly twenty thousand polish officers were detained and executed all over the soviet union it became known as the cutting massacre because i think it was one of the burial grounds where nearly four thousand officers were executed shot in the back of the head and buried in mass graves and for decades the soviet leadership insisted that this was the work of nazi forces that were on soviet territory at the time russia in the early one nine hundred ninety s. finally admitted responsibility for those murders and of course it was a very significant event for the revelations between moscow and warsaw because the polish side was just as frustrated at not knowing what happened to nearly twenty thousand of its citizens as they were with the law as they were being fed by the
3:10 pm
soviet leadership and the admittance of guilt in this was if that incident has been already called a turning point in relations between moscow and warsaw that crimean the left was commuted by. study and his comrades and. unfortunately this was against a lot of people. know he did declare regional parliament to my country we. was sort of with polish people a boat that event of course the sorrow is not just a purely on the polish side thousands and thousands of russian citizens were also executed there in the 1930's as part of stalinist repressions and all the facts have been released all the archives declassified and made available not only to the polish side but also to the public they were posted online just earlier this year
3:11 pm
and today we've already. i've heard from some polish officials who have said that this latest step this acceptance by the russian state duma of joseph stalin as the man behind the executions of those polish officers a laser foundation of trust between the two countries that will allow them to build a much more open and honest relationship of course cutting it for the polish side is not just a historical tragedy it is also a recent one earlier this year the polish president lech kaczynski was on his way to the team to base his respects after for the first time in history both the russian and the polish sides official delegations were there to pay their respects to all the victims very then got the defections the plane crashed just outside of smiling and killing everybody on board most of poland's political elite nearly one hundred people so for poland this is a very wrong subject and stuff like these hopefully will bring the two sides closer
