that has been heard by a panel of three military judges in moscow's military court has been labeled classified as well as every single bit of evidence and every witness statement that has been delivered in the case every single item of procedural evidence is classified because of course the matter is so highly sensitive and the charges that carry a lot of sort of bites has been found guilty of are no less than treason and just hurting the country of course to very serious charges perhaps might say the most serious charges a man could face especially of course a military man one who was given his life to serving his country has basically done the exact opposite of that but we do know that he has been found guilty of treason and sentenced in absentia to twenty five years in prison. the panel of the verdict was delivered by a panel of three military judges here in the heart of the capital he was appointed

3:16 am
number of terminated pregnancies but there is criticism that the measures will deprive women of the right to determine their own future. what color has the details. when she heard she was pregnant again alina had already been through two ceasar in sections and had to tell three sons to make her life complete along with her diabetes this pregnancy was a huge risk now though she can't imagine life without her sasha there's a lot of where i look at my little miracle i can't even imagine that once i had thought about getting rid of him i've never regretted my decision later i was able to make her choice freely had she wanted a determination nothing would have stood in her way abortion in russia is available on request up to twelve weeks and is permitted at any stage if the pregnancy puts the mother's life in danger the proposed legislation would end free abortions and state clinics and make women wait for

a week before the germination to think over their decision the morning after pill now available at any pharmacy would also become prescription only it's not the normal there was but if we managed to avert at least twenty percent of abortions annually we have a clear increase in vice rates instead of a demographic decline with. a qualified psychologist working at one of moscow's maternity hospitals says the stress of an unplanned pregnancy often makes women wash their decision they might later regret for them as a veggie my task is not to talk a woman out of abortion just sure who the alternatives she doesn't end up tormenting herself where with questions like who are all the baby would have been now and what he or she would have looked like. experts say the only way forward is to give women the security needed to embark on motherhood augur found the help she was so desperate for at a moscow charity. my husband left me when i was pregnant i didn't have any means to
3:18 am
him the kids already had let alone raise another one. however opponents of the proposed legislation believe limiting a woman's choice reaches her rights both health and human my body is my business is just one of their slogans that the other history shows the there you go she has never wanted to be. when the soviet union outlawed abortions in nineteen thirty six the result was an enormous increase in the maternal death rate and that's what doctors fear most that restrictions on legal abortions were only push women to find risky backstreet alternatives even if it threatens their health and life for the of the years living in russia forty percent of women decide against pregnancy and if a woman is determined not to have children she won't and that includes simply abandoning. the mothers of these babies who found a way to escape the burdens of motherhood these children are too young to
3:19 am
understand why they were not wanted. these children didn't choose to come into this world and be deprived of their basic rights or parental love one day they might find someone to call their family over the question is whether restricting abortions will lead to more children abandoned after being warned against their mothers well. gary i wish r.t. moscow. egypt is still waiting for political and economic reform in the wake of its uprising but for thousands of people who are out a living at rubbish dance around cairo it seems changes now are always welcome later in the day our special report reveals the challenges communities faces from globalization their arrival of foreign companies. i was just thinking about my future before the foreign companies came i dreamed of

and there's you know very welcome to business r.t. with me to the tune of the danco russia's biggest airline flights is the latest company to be shed to look for privatization the announcement came from finance minister taxi khujand at the renesas capital investment for me says the sale will take place within the next three to five years the russian state i was around half the company and the size of the stake to be privatized is unclear the russian government is going to sell a number of assets in the near future in order to raise up to twenty five billion dollars. well as extending losses with a stronger dollar and worries about global demand it dropped sharply at the end of last week following a decision by the international energy agency to release to egypt reserves and to the market move is having a direct impact on the russian market which relies heavily on energy exports crude is now trading at around ninety dollars per barrel that's not a u.t.i.
3:25 am
and it's lowest for about a year however you know what it is what you can do if your bank says the facts are likely to be short lived. i really think the fact of these measures will prices is. transitory i don't think it's going to have a long term significance. i think the reason why you do have an emphatic reaction from the markets is the possibility of such measures being undertaken on the possibility of them being repeated in the future but i think is what is accounting for such a significant reaction but if things are left. and there is no continue was sort of effort on the part of the developed world to try and raise will supply and i think it's likely to be a significant factor in the determination of oil prices for this year and we continue to project world prices averaging one hundred seventeen point
3:26 am
five dollars per barrel. and crude price volatility is widely discussed at the we're nation's capital investment for which is going on right now in moscow we can cross a lot of hopefully to of course not have not enough cost for those that matter you know good to see you what's the atmosphere like. well everyone's really excited here they keep saying that they see a lot of potential and russia and they're here to discuss about investment opportunities and of course this is the perfect place to brainstorm on a leader in france and of course the separatists most important for russia is the oil and gas and we're not drawing by crystal through from the piece to the colonists to discuss more about this no one has been very volatile at this year too late in risk premiums but it has now come down to ninety dollars per barrel what do you make of the current price and where do you see it going in the fourth medium term goal is interesting times following the release of all commercial districts by
3:27 am
the. nobody can tell you exactly where the price will be at a given days but i think it makes sense to think of it as a continuum of possibilities between two extremes one extreme would be what i would call oprah compliance so they do what they said they would do indeed result put in addition to the emergency release and then you would see prices stabilize and fording at a lower level the other extreme is like a war of attrition if they were to college about this if this was really perceived as a wholesome movement by the way they could call in their budgets and see a real these releases by just cutting production on their sides then it would be a prolonged prolonged situation since both alternatives are very costly for both parties i don't think that any of the cheery allies of the truth will be somewhere in the middle so i would expect oil prices of the medium short term to have stabilized to the one level and they don't look at facilitate investment into the russian oil and gas sector the companies need additional tax breaks or more
3:28 am
transparency under school licenses it's all of the off and more that is there's no silver bullet and then russia is an option in a different. so there are all the things which we know from other countries are equal in the fair tax regime. that includes six nations of the balance between the production of before crude oil and finding the product exports a simple licensing regime regime transparent to send this for privatization open climate for foreign investment what i can say and what everybody can see actually is that in those countries and regions where we do have investment private investment is not even talking about big multinational companies so for private investment you have approaching industry to show gas revolution that the u.s. is the best example of brazil and the discoverers there is another example and in those countries a regions where you have state control in the facility for private investors to enter you have a stadium a certain nation that in the long term for the production of a simple thank you very much that was the peacekeeper communist christophe group
