1:03 am
to decide after all it was the witnesses the locals living right a by the road where the plane had crashed that had been the first at the scene. we first told. and we heard a man screaming his clothes were burning around my house. the flames. of course is still very early stages initial theories investigators say that they are looking at all possible avenues or one of the statements made by the local airport you can see where i am right now they said that they had the pilot to make the second tower but he said that he would make it the first time so but but again these are all based on the statements made by the black box itself will have to be decoded as you know of course takes us some time before the fischel state will be made. a commercial plane that would have landed on schedule i ended up in pieces and in flames this tuple of one three four
1:04 am
carrying fifty two people from moscow the bet was a vodka northwestern russia crash on a road around a kilometer from the runway there only missing a row of houses and killing forty four on board airport officials say the plane hit a high voltage power line that cut off lights on the runway which also knocked out the town's electricity. at around midnight the lights went off in our house we were going to check the electric transformer when we heard the sound of a huge explosion we arrived at the scene of the accident people plane was seriously damaged we could see its wing jutting out of the bushes scattered all around the field there were lots of them below we're here at the site with a total of one three four crash landed on a road and as you can see behind me there's a lifting parts of the plane the man living here was first on the scene because the plane had landed right in front of his home. i carried three people out of the wreckage long was either a girl or a woman i could not sell but she was larger than the man was hard to see it was
1:05 am
dark and there was a man it also was unhappy it was not even me and then we carried out two more people from the wreckage in the middle of the road another man reached out his hand towards me but i couldn't make it to him and everything starts explaining i could not get any closer everything was engulfed by fire so very. among the eight survivors were a young boy his teenage sister and their mother five had been flown to moscow for medical treatment initial reports point to a human error and bad weather conditions at the time as possible causes of the crash ground staff at the local airport claimed they had asked the pilot to make a second approach but he said he'd make it the first time however investigators say there are several theories and nothing has been ruled out just yet arson investigator. continue their work at the site of the tragedy the debris there is spread across a three hundred meter radius the flight recorder has already been found
1:06 am
communication recordings are being analyzed forensic analysis is being carried out we're looking into several versions of what caused the tragedy these include the human factor such as an air of the crew or the ground services severe weather conditions technical failure and several other potential causes this is the twenty eighth crash involving a tuple of one three four tarnishing its reputation even more in two thousand and seven russia's transport minister called the aircraft obsolete and should be replaced within five years but some would argue that in most plane crashes human error placed the biggest part. of which i don't think anything would go wrong with the plane itself in forty years of operation the triple of one three four has proved to be extremely reliable aircraft in previous catastrophes human error was always to blame and the same is true here the pilot should have made a second landing approach this is exactly what happened to the polish presidential airplane while investigators work on the case relatives of the victims and
1:07 am
survivors are dealing with their own grief one shared by the people of beth as avoids declaring three days of mourning the loss are still here r t and the russian region the greek government has narrowly won a key vote of confidence around the prime minister to continue his fight for cuts parliaments and now has to decide whether to impose austerity measures with aliens of europe or to secure a second. and i thought of the country's problems economy as sarah. ever widening divide between the governments vision and they would have the people. it's considered by many to be the past place of democracy but increased now the whitening gap between the aims of the people and the government is creating explain . that we are a mix of people that have no political dollars and we are all together to say that

1:12 am

1:17 am
anywhere with this level of munitions and not kill civilians so ok you're going to protect civilians by intervening with the type of munitions that cannot avoid killing civilians i don't think that nato and its commanders and the president and the politicians involved in this are beyond a point of no return so they simply cannot stop in terms of their own mind what they've invested in this and there where they want to end up doing whatever is necessary to secure victory in libya and they will project media stories to cover it. for all the latest news from libya get a website i thought he called a line right now a strike of course of the kills people as an explosion rocks the house of

watching business. and money has been steadily flowing out of russia for the last nine months due to risk aversion among global investors a new state backed investment fund is part of the efforts to reverse that trend i think cars foreign capital to take a longer view of course all caught up with the c.e.o. of the new. petersburg forum and started by asking him how the phone would work. there's a basic idea behind the plan to spur investments because actually let's move me to a chairman of national bank myself and some of the key people who traveled around the investors of the world and we asked them how would you invest much more into the russian economy and basically they said that they would like to invest more but they need to have a good partner because for many people to be their first guest of the russian if
1:25 am
a partner so for investment is a basic ideas of funds we'll invest in projects but it can invest in projects only if at least the same amount of money is going vested by the leading international investor in the project to swap what's the broader purpose of this fund what is it to achieve i think many investors feel that as a result of a perception gap between real risk situation in russia and how some investors perceive it and you know we can go into the history of it but everybody agrees that the resists perception gap that basically investors think it's more difficult and more risk it would invest in russia as an actual it is so defiant it will be a partner in that they need the partner to feel more comfortable making investment and it's very similar for example if you invest in the rig in china you know would you invest on your own would you like to part it was a chinese fund so we're just making it easier to find
1:26 am
a partner and we shares the risk because russian state will bid for investment as those investors why should a guarantee be necessary isn't the kind of admission that there is a genuine risk that there are problems that clones be fixed funds like exist funds that invest a lot in domestic economy exist in many countries and it's very important because many conflicts france and pretty much all of the countries they want money to be invested inside if they want to make sure that instead companies grow inside so it's not something incredibly unique that's good though it is ten billion dollars going to be enough well first of all been a good to get ten billion the front you're going to get two billion each year for the next five years and we believe it's. a good way to start chinese investment corporation because three hundred billion dollars demanded from the greatest one hundred fifty billion dollars to management so that snorkels the largest loss to the world but for what it is designed to do which is to bring international best risk into russia and we believe that it will really war going to be sufficient amount of money to showcase the ordeal for the very successful investment example
