bribes to beer u.s. officials all linked to either gaddafi or his family. i won't even begin to describe how hard it was to start his business could obvious his hands on everything for decades he's been taking money from ordinary people but now it's time for him to be rhetorical. question sure small private business does exist in libya with the colonel and his close allies controlling all sectors of the economy it's a huge struggle for any businessman to make decent profits the idea that the revolution will open the floor cares for everyone can enjoy is backed by rebel informers to the military command we have as a country. as we have. in this. economy we are not. and i would invite you.

to reason and you would see what some analysts don't share this often isn't and doubt nato is the guardian angel it promises to be it has nothing to do with humanitarian aid nothing to do with democracy nothing to do with helping the people and. exploited to steal your resources over forty one billion barrels of oil reserves or the war just in africa and the ninth largest in the world there's so much oil feeling about gas tank on a midsize core costs less than ten dollars in two thousand and need to go even promised every libyan will be paid eight hundred dollars every month to share that revenues but failed to keep his word we have the resources to do big business it's just that in the past for decades it was done only by us. circle of chosen people the elite and now here in the rebel stronghold the local cd are ready to
7:04 am
fight to the end to build a free and prosperous society but is the opposition strong enough to build a whole new regime or can it be that the future of the libyan people has already been decided for them you go to school authorities in guys the libya. well fresh from libya you go to share with us his experience on the ground that's a bonus. i spent two weeks there. talked a lot with the rebels themselves myself and they are pretty badly organized many of the more you on many of them are teenagers who just got their hands on intelligence . constantly shooting just in the air in the city itself when they're either celebrating something or commemorating something it seemed to me it was actually. more dangerous to be inside because of that rather than the front because everybody just sporadically should be and to be here it seemed to me that any of these people never really used forms they got these guns from got
7:05 am
a few troops and when they retreated one of our teams was feeling at the front page they got caught by a mortar attack so when they were he was running back. from the front they saw how the rebels were actually running faster. than our team so that shows a lot about their organization and plus. a european countries now saying that they're going to send trainers to help organize the rebels it's really hard to see how. many free and the russia game i recently talked to the libyan prime minister so look we are ready to meet mediate this but all sides have to abide by the u.n. resolution the fighting must stop. the civilians which are killed every day there all this must stop and this is the only way for some sort of a cease fire to be possible. other coalitions are open siding with the libyan
7:06 am
opposition could lead to dangerous consequences that's according to russian of foreign minister sort of the aftermath. of what was the we suspect believe be an opposition's rejection of the cease fire and we should see is connected with nato is implementing the u.n. security council resolution and it's soon way and here's sided with the rebels and probably the rebels rely on western help to overthrow the regime and seize power and it's a very dangerous mood unfortunately it came to contagious these could lead to a serious of civil wars in the region. you and i will be getting some expert analysis on that in the coming minutes here on r.t. in our meantime a columnist and former editor of the sun newspaper calvin at mackenzie says there's no reason britain and france should meddle in at libya's internal affairs here's a preview of what's to come up next well. this is libyans fighting libyans and who are we to say who should be wearing their country after all when i last
7:07 am
looked i didn't notice any of the libyans interfere with the cavaliers and the railheads took place in their revolution or that as far as i could see there was nobody from tripoli wonderer in the french revolution. you get our team now russia's art world has plunged into controversy after an award for innovation went to a giant piece of graffiti that many viewed as obscene nevertheless it bagged radical art a group of i know there are fifteen thousand dollar price after work on a drawbridge opposite the federal security service in some petersburg and while most people were angered at the action others say it's the message and not the form that matters parties after bennett reports. this is award winning aren't according to russia's ministry of culture the sixty five metre phallus whitewashed on a draw bridge in st petersburg has won the twenty ten innovation prize for best visual
7:08 am
artwork self-styled terrorists vyner meaning war in russian are the unpopular wins. i think it's essentially vandalism a bridge is a cultural and historical monument and anything on it has an act of vandalism and it should be punished not rewarded. here in the center of contemporary art you can see the other entries for the award nothing is stimulating or shocking or innovative as viner's and according to the jury that's why they won purely artistic merit but now it's not as simple as that the same symbol the ministry rewarded is now being brandished in mocking protest this russian youth group is angry four hundred thousand rubles of taxpayers' money we given to a group it calls vandals for vine or the protest only legitimizes they're out. of the woods it's a very awkward situation when the state award goes to
7:09 am
a group that in fact organizes an action aimed against the state but this is a very important signal artists always express society's pain and a healthy society accepts these. but there's been no acceptance of vinyl as art until now two members still face trial on hooliganism charges because this little stunt british graffiti artist banksy did bail them out but they could still face seven years in prison. so why this sudden show of state support. the minister of culture was afraid of being accused of political censorship and i think he was great in america entry is better being afraid of impulse and political censorship than to actually import your brizard. a sea change from four years ago this image of two kissing policeman was banned by the culture ministry from the international exhibit fearing embarrassment the curator of that exhibit was andrei
7:10 am
uniphase back then he lost his job but this time he was on the jury so why is our then. during is a graphic and expressive example of how an artist reacts to a social climate he doesn't specify the target of his protest he simply says that strong protest is brewing in russian society for having draw the line between saying this. and vandalism because this is just painting. their street art is minor vandalism but it's not who it is i'm the disorder it may cause it's compensated hundreds of times by the meaning of their pictures which is painting could be restored on the bridge to become a symbol of some petersburg's culture because it's the first work that is proof of a civil society. vine learn courts controversy usually at the expense of the authorities whether it's not all they want. to write they say
7:11 am
they'll donate the prize money to political prisoners i didn't it. and the more controversial stories like that ignite debate you can logon to our website that's artsy dot com a couple items you'll find out right now are russian buses return to the past for a new look by being decorated for victory day with portraits of. his mixed legacy remains a prickly issue. no one. the anger over the decision to whisk russian government officials to a moscow airport by helicopter while the public struggles to get their own traffic showed the streets full of so much more party dot com.
7:12 am
with r.t. let's go back to one of our top stories now and libya fresh comments from the russian foreign minister who said that nato siding with the opposition could lead to dangerous consequences now to discuss these new statements and russia's role in the situation surrounding now joined from the it's a good of what the quantum international relations are high to you so we're hearing some statements from the minister. chastising of nato for siding with the opposition and going well beyond the u.n. resolution that russia could have vetoed that this is so far the toughest official reaction you think it could go any thought. of that took place in security council or the talks about potential solutions even though there was no talk about . supporting ones. sides. there. in their civil war and what we see now there are native plants. they are
7:13 am
propagating civil war in libya they're supporting one party in this internal conflict and you know russia in accordance with. the united nations charter has always have been catered for their noninvolvement into our companies internal affairs so of course. many people in russia are feeling that russia has been actually stamped into the fall of pharaoh because when they voted to play as they do was to protect civilians to stop while at the same libya but what was seen now while i'm still here is escalating and never cancers are supporting one party or the civil war that is they can place in libya as you said you were saying you know the initial purpose of this so u.n. resolution one ninety seven three was that of a humanitarian mission but now it becomes clear to many of the alliances is that intervening for regime change you suggest a civil war taking place but also you say there are perhaps some moscow's expectations have been dashed what implications you think this could have on
7:14 am
relations between the alliance and russia you know i don't think it will influence russian. alliance relations there in march because there are many other issues there to russia and a major have to call the rage you see this is fighting drug trafficking and fighting terrorism and so on barges off cause this way of conducting international relations doesn't improve. the whole atmosphere in this type of relations you see because both in european countries and in the rush of the different forces the different political parties are different our forces and of cause i'm a new russia now feel there you know russia has been actually basically scamps especially during the years u.n. resolution and of course now. russia's going tough on to the whole station leave it because. you know regime change taken once inside the civil war in the
7:15 am
country and of course it's absolutely except by. the international case so you're saying this this will not improve relations between this western alliance and russia but there are other realms for these parties to work together on up an hour so we left off you talk to the libyan prime minister on saturday calling for the violence to stop and proposing a mediation for the first ceasefire do you think russia can get involved and actually help the situation there. you know or i think there are neither russia nor any other country in the world should. being there they could. improve those kids in libya themselves basically you see their future of libya the political future of libya is the destiny of the whole country and that's the business of libyan people and where our foreign partners are trying to play a role in these internal civil conflicts usually you see it there to the extreme is
7:16 am
terrorists take. care of what we saw in iraq and what we are now seeing in afghanistan so russian position has been always been very prudent first of all it's not all went into all the cancers internal affairs that's the cornerstone of the united nations again is a ship and russia cares about borders are supporting these basics of international law that's not. said. of course russia as all the other countries tried to do their best in stopping the bloodshed taking place in libya by what we see now their position of many punches nation members he is absolutely destructive what they're doing they're not preventing large shares but they're increasing. the bloodshed in libya big ego and popular from the is a futile for world economy and international relations thank you. well it may have
