this afternoon thank you very much. so you some very interesting comments that are being made at live in brussels the conference between the e.u. commission and many many russian officials including of course the russian prime minister vladimir putin some intriguing comments there about what's called the third energy package proposal from russia to the e.u. the e.u. commission president jose manuel barroso actually saying quite clearly that russian gas is vital to keep going but what the stumbling blocks over the third energy package that all distribution of gas to europe once your russian gas but who gets the rights and the profits to distribute it certainly the russian prime minister there being very outspoken in other issues they raise the current ongoing crisis in the middle east the arab world in north africa both of the both of them and condemning the ongoing violence and condemning the use of military force against
8:32 am
protesters and civilians in libya both sides russia and the e.u. saying they're going to work together to help to prevent the influx of hundreds of thousands of immigrants whether it's through the republics of the caucuses or through southern and eastern europe the issue of energy was a big one between both major parties here. e.u. commission president jose manuel barroso saying that russia is the largest trading partner with the e.u. it is the biggest investor and that they will work to combine innovation in various areas of trade and technology the issue one big one was that of having a visa free travel regime and our prime minister putin saying that as often of the european business partners who are complaining that having a visa regime for traveling is hurting their business is now a promise promise to putin saying that he's convinced today's meetings were all very very constructive the in the realm of improving economic cooperation and other
8:33 am
mutually beneficial areas between russia and the e.u. of course you can always find more details on that on a. website art dot com and move on to some other stories here. more to come to you live from the heart of the russian capital now a court in london ruled in favor of julian saunders extradition the wiki leaks founder is wanted for questioning in connection with sexual assault allegations during a trip he made to sweden last summer let's get more details now from marty's home or i mean wedding frost live outside the courthouse i know there's been a lot of controversy surrounding this extradition request or what are the judge or have to say about the ruling are. well essentially what we saw this morning was the judge knocking down these defense arguments out of the water essentially one by one he said that our songs had not in fact made himself available for questioning whilst he was in sweden and that our soldiers swedish go ahead misled the court when he said that he had. was unco on contactable and avoided interrogation while
8:34 am
he was in sweden he also said that the european arrest warrant had been issued for us on might be disproportionate but it was valid and it was definitely issued with a view to prosecuting ourselves for these charges and he also said that certainly one of the charges that's being brought against these allegations that are being made against student ourselves for sexual assault certainly one of them would constitute rape in the u.k. and all four of them that were extraditable offenses now assault has always maintained his innocence in this case and in fact he says and his defense team say that this is politically motivated in connection with his work with wiki leaks wiki leaks of course we've seen releasing a series of cables relating to the u.s. diplomatic service some of which were deeply embarrassing for the u.s. government has always maintained that this is in order to facilitate his extradition own words to the u.s. we have heard in the last couple of days from the justice department in the
8:35 am
american justice department in london said. that there are new charges currently against us on in america but there is an investigation underway into wiki leaks but the judge again said that there was no evidence that a star should be extradited to america all of that he might be tortured all that he could be executed or that he could be sent to guantanamo bay if he indeed was sent to america or so laura tell us what's next for science that. well this is very unlikely to finish here of the defense team have already said that they're going to launch an appeal they have now have seven days in which to do that they will take the appeal first to the high court and then if that doesn't succeed to the supreme court here in the u.k. and then if they have to they say that they will go to the european court of human rights so this is a case that will certainly continue into the summer but i wouldn't be surprised if it carried on for much longer than. life outside the courthouse in the u.k.
8:36 am
thanks so much. and it's got some more analysis on this now we are going to speak to a writer and journalist. you're actually also a credited with the wiki leaks story the court ruled in the case on the case so quite quickly today when you think was the final swing point for the judge well you know it's really difficult for a judge. in the role of the european country actually not to accept a warrant issued by a fellow europeans the. european union state. that's a law that was accepted by the opi of the union that it is able to. warrant and search warrant should be served in any other country so basically it was difficult from the very beginning to clearly. he should not be excluded members of your opinion and they have to work together here when it comes to the legalities of this process so they couldn't say no basically or a no no during
8:37 am
a start he is expected to appeal this decision how long could that take there there are some reports. from our reporter laura meant saying it could go to the summer absolutely absolutely well or ill and say it will last as long as there is some money people oil. the proceedings in england they're extremely expensive and the last extremely long time and nobody knows whether it will be or when i was lawyers i've been expressing concern over the swedish judicial system saying there's evidence to support their claims that assad won't get get a fair trial would he like about well he has in a way absolutely first of all it is true that the case is well it's politically motivated and the second at all swedish legal system no way they speak very much skew it became extremely influenced by a feminist elements a. serious them and it became a chile as such a system that practically every man any man could be sent to jail or the complaint
8:38 am
made by telephone by anybody so you're saying that there's a huge amount of feminist power in the judicial system in sweden but let's talk about let's talk about the aspect of not getting a fair trial here let's talk about him possibly getting extradited to america you had mentioned a moment ago that there are many that say that this whole case is politically motivated what do you think are the chances that at the end of the day julian assange will get sent back to the u.s. for trial well you know it's also possible it's also possible there are very close relations between the present right wing government of sweden and the united states actually the turn of sweden over to the united states beginning quite a few years ago. maybe some of our audience remembers a story about russian submarines in sweden now we know that it was probably keep it all together the united states but when it went on it made
8:39 am
a huge impact on the swedish mind american spent a lot of money trying to influence. actually succeeded to great extent to influence now we have also an important person who is your viewers probably remember or know karl rove the men behind the little man to be brought to trial and even be hunted down and even karl rove was suggesting at some point he should be executed he was going as far as that but. if. does it make it to the u.s. what started to happen to him because one of the things that people are saying is that if the wiki leaks which has been from american media they've been saying this is all nonsense this wiki leaks stuff. if it is not us then why is america so much trouble trying to get. its nonsense and actually the united states officials or lists official people or for julian assange one hundred million dollars cash
8:40 am
to take it give them all the cables he refused so it's not it's not been that's. very very important thing and finally just to get back to the question that i asked you moments ago this service appealing now in england after the court has ruled that it's actually dition to sweden can happen the appeal could now take how long will probably it will take a few months ago a few months or so. that other animal species soon again journalist and writer is russian thank you for coming. well italy fears it will be brought to its knees as a new wave of immigrants is expected to flood the country thousands of refugees have reached its shores from unstable regions the government has called on the european union to help with the predicted invasion of up to one million people. dealing with the situation. at eighty miles off the coast of north africa the tiny italian island of lampedusa has fishing and tourism for its main sources.
