a capitalist america where the object is to win the revolution of workers when it socialism and capitalism when it's barbarism talking to people around the bric forum it seems many are trying to implement the change they're studying without uttering the s. or c. isn't communism word now it's become more positive to say progressive or less whatever you want to call it they are actively trying to solve the problems and inequality they see in the country which is an attempt to make change but maybe right now it's not in terms of a revolution but of working from within which you can call any number of things but probably not unpatriotic lauren lyster r.t. new york and hundreds of u.s. troops have returned home after a treacherous tour of duty in afghanistan officials say they're the first of some seventeen thousand due to be pulled out in the coming months but other soldiers will be sent to replace them archies military contributor says what matters is how the fresh batch of troops will be used. well the latest technical shift that is
4:19 am
supposed to happen in afghanistan it's an additional beef up of u.s. marines in the southern part of the country going to the latest data the u.s. marine corps is expected to beef up its deployment up to additional one thousand troops well the question is who cares whether it's going to be just the same static twenty thousand and four just another one thousand marines well the kershner difference is to what purpose real this additional one thousand marines will serve the key issue here is that helmand province is a u.s. marines sanctuary and it could make or break the new military campaign in southern afghanistan and define the future of afghanistan itself and the future of the u.s. military presence in afghanistan and beyond if american marines really gann be used and abused in full accordance with the policy of save guiding the drug lords
4:20 am
and their slaves in helmand province then they will be remembered in afghanistan in generations to come as the most expensive suckers of the exploit of the drug and warlords in afghanistan who are deployed to safeguard yet another record breaking opium harvest in helmand and beyond and it was artie's military contributor carl again a question of their. revered and fear and they are the cream of russia's military crop the country special forces spetznaz are the first and often the last line of the fans against many of today's threats including terrorism and as our teams more international reports it takes blood sweat and years to earn one of their red berets. these young soldiers part of the country's internal forces

4:22 am
for rye if he's here to help the envoys deal with that oh no the order of courage was serious in chechnya and the crimson berry they talk space now it's all a similar term erika's greenberry he knows how to take control of human nature was approached many sportsmen come to us and failed only twenty percent managed to prove they deserve it as a true spitz not soldier is a fusion of physical insurance and what may be even more important emotional maturity and. countering terrorism is a spats not spatiality but they could be sent to any kind of emergency if it threatens the country's security in mid december when the russian capital was hit by a wave of violent nationalist riots spetznaz soldiers were on standby close by so normal russia sort of some may say that's a. for special forces but for the police we don't agree there is the order and we
4:23 am
have to carry it out as well as we can that's it. all of these young soldiers are conscripts it means to stay for a year at least. many say they'll stay for longer sign a contract and continue as professionals in the. various notion r t. now the christmas holidays in russia also mean it's sales time a little later we go bargain hunting in the capital's best takes. located in the back streets just. remember this place isn't easy to find but what a jam it is most of the code look as if they're brand new the collection is impressive the prices are low cost that original price sounds good to me.
4:24 am
because it. was. in about ten minutes time here on our team before that will take a look at what's happening in the world of business with your own. welcome to our business program. a high tech country needs to make high tech products the government is putting its political and financial capital behind modernizing the economy but it also needs to find innovative goods the rest of the world might want to buy that tell you how close reports. the gigantic ultramodern building obstacle cover innovation center these days it's attracting a lot of interest from those who in the near future could change the face of both
4:25 am
russian science and its economy speaking at the forum the presidential aide even went as far as saying that russia may become the world leader in innovation within the next five years but for that to happen talent needs to be nurtured and harnessed such as that belonging to this fifteen year old muscovite was not so this model is built with construction cage it's intended for people with limited hand movement which is constructed on the principle of human biomechanics and fully replicate science function i'm currently expanding my project and i hope it will soon help even those who are paralyzed three times a year as they had a roof not a was more cautious and preferred not to unveil details of their breakthrough projects but assured that there were at least three that could change the world and it was the sense of exciting potential that was attracting a new wave of private capital to come to russia a number of. other what you got this is what this is about
4:26 am
eleven billion dollars. what is the point of for me yeah we. are investing eleven you know less than fifty percent. more so. that it's up the road to the top five sectors prioritize to drive russia's modernization our energy efficiency nuclear in space technology medicine telecommunications and aunty but some of the most interesting projects have universal appeal and cut across all areas. of the economy and society this is what the library of the future should look like in the eyes of some young russian inventors they believe it could be a real money spinner into us the last year more than one hundred thousand people have paid to join their start up service booth scientists and businessmen agree that finding talent in russia is not the major problem the skulk of a research group has already found many exciting and innovative candidates the
4:27 am
trick will be to harness that into primary or energy to produce goods that will make the whole world sit up and take notice and then get out its wallet. r t moscow. two thousand and eleven will see more changes in the banking system with some players leaving the market and the rules getting stricter speaking exclusively to r.t. deputy general director of russia's deposit insurance agency under miller cough spoke about the upcoming reforms. to the post the only changes we think we should make is to create procedures so that the assets and deposits of a bank or bank are given to a healthy one that's the situation we see in the states at the moment in the us in ninety five percent of cases this mechanism is being implemented the clients of the bank are banks are given access to their deposits quicker also the agency together with the state doesn't have to spend a lot of money and the liquidation process is faster so now we think this mechanism
4:28 am
could be used in our country we have already tried it several times and found that it works we think it is possible and this will also give us more but unities to save capital reserves the central bank plans to raise the minimum capital requirement for retail banks do you think this will force a more banks into liquidation starting. this move lies in the overall strategy to develop the banking sector last year the minimum level was three million dollars the next step is six million dollars until the end of two thousand and eleven for all banks to fulfill this obligation the system needs capital reserves of some three hundred million dollars i don't think this is a crucial figure so i believe the russian banking system will see another minimum level increase and this will prompt further reduction in the number of banks present in the market next year i expect this to for some ten to twelve banks to
4:29 am
leave the sector but this will not be critical for the whole system. do you see more consolidation in the banking market next year and i think on the every year around fifteen. banks leave the market our forecast is that some thirty banks will have to be shut down but you can never really see exactly how many banks our country needs the main aim is for all of these banks to function properly currently we have around one thousand banks in the market and they cooperate quite well with each other. and russian companies enjoyed a successful rebound from the crisis in two thousand and ten as investors increasingly turn to emerging markets but a select group emerged as big winners and potential gainers in two thousand and eleven and float ended the year well as it was linked to a rebound in consumer demand and a recovering economy.
