out in the russian capital you're watching r t i'm marina joshie welcome to the program the un has called for restraint in libya had reports of abuses at alleged summary killings by both rebels and gadhafi loyalists the security council has also agreed to release one point five billion dollars in libyan assets to help deal with humanitarian needs the opposition continues to claim the tripoli as a largely under its control while the national transitional council says it's moved from a stronghold of benghazi to the capital there are reports of heavy resistance by khadafi forces with the colonels or about still unknown meanwhile khadafi has eric and other radio message claiming he is fighting on the front lines nato has denied previous reports that it's assisting the rebels in the hunt to find him investigative journalist webster tarpley says if gadhafi isn't captured nato will shift its attention to countries like syria. to die. he was supposed to fall in
2:02 am
march he has essentially gummed up the works he has assumed the blocking position of the the nato subversion machine and he's kept them tied up for six or seven months if gadhafi resistance were to subside which i do not think will happen these military assets that we presently see deployed in the central mediterranean will be moved to the eastern mediterranean and there has been and syria and ultimately iran had better watch out because they're also targets and remember this gets into iran and also russia because of that important naval station to syria which is the base of the russian mediterranean squadron so if it's if it's calming down in libya that simply means that this war will move move east but i think right now we're looking at a very long war in libya let's compare gadhafi to well i don't want to compare him
2:03 am
to move on but you know that was ten years ago mullah omar is still operating with no problems. i think can can go one better so i don't don't look for gadhafi to be rounded up anything i mean even if he is there's an extended family here and there is indeed an extended tribe the tribal organization in libya is ideal for conducting a resistance under these conditions. paragon says it's monitoring sites in libya known to contain stockpiles of chemical weapons and spirit terrorist cells and militants can raid their arsenals which allegedly include tons of mustard gas and raw uranium and while the u.s. is pledging to prevent weapons from falling into the wrong hands doubts being cast over whether they would be safe are under nails watch as artie's or i am it reports . tripoli a city in chaos there's constant gun thought oppose aggressive and celebration and on the outskirts of the capital stockpiles of chemical weapons south east of
2:04 am
tripoli mustard gas and other chemical agents which can cause severe blistering and death and to the east hundreds of tons of rule uranium which can be processed and used in nuclear bombs nature you know very little about the people who might come to power in tripoli you know if you've got this cache of weapons of mass destruction that again people really don't know what's there and if this is falling into the furnace of certain people i mean the situation is potentially disastrous despite the heavy presence of rebels in tripoli the chemical stockpile appears still to be in the hands of what's left of these government that's both good and bad news following a series of meetings in two thousand and three move markets we agreed to allow weapons inspectors into libya the first step towards abandoning his w m d program in return for a normalizing of relations with the u.k.
2:05 am
and us they agree that he wouldn't use all move the material but now thanks in parts and nato support of the rebels he's on the back foot and may feel he has nothing to lose by disregarding the agreements he's cry victory or martyrdom will strike an omen to those who know his weapons potentially you. and the violations of the national territory of libya by needle led rebel forces i think that the idea that he would be beholden to these types of. agreements would be off the table at this point and certainly he was called it is seen in early july that he would be willing to stray go to europe if tripoli was attacked so i think it's a fair assumption to say that if there is that capability that he would be looking at that option at this point. but the alternative rebel control of hundreds of tons of rule uranium and chemical weapons is arguably worse according to many some of the rebel factions have links to al qaida or of commentator abdel bari atwan says
2:06 am
the west got itself into this trouble now it has to decide how it will figure it out and the options aren't attractive we knew that the majority of the people who are fighting are muslim extremists or how the people is the people are. and i believe that. would be more proper than that. because there are some indications nato is considering putting peacekeeping troops on the ground in libya we do know experts who are back could be seen by parts of the free libya movement as an act of aggression but having supported the rebel movement nato must now deal with the consequences even if that's w m d armed islamic extremists nor emmet. well syria is also believed to possess massive stocks of chemical weapons the ongoing unrest in the country cobbled with international economic and political

pressure it's only fueling fears for global security letter expect there from the center for nonproliferation studies says the weapons seen by president asad as a symbol of legitimacy have to be eliminated. with assad still in control of the country and his forces still intact with very few defections although we are seeing some defections the items are safe although still in the hands of a very vicious dictator so for the moment i don't think we're seeing any loss of control but as this situation unfolds and as we may have the violence of the kind that we've seen in libya and different factions become armed and perhaps take on the regime and then the chance for chaos and for the loss of control i think regrows extensionally what we have to imagine is perhaps a change of government that is that done peacefully under international pressure that assad steps aside when he observes the magnitude of the. demonstrations and
2:08 am
the pressure that he's now receiving in terms of sanctions and other means and in that environment then we can get an international team in from the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons where you would then have the orderly control and maybe eventual dismantling of these weapons they are able to them that weapons and the international community is our eyes and they need to be eliminated as fast as possible and hopefully the new government that might come in would not look to them as symbols of legitimacy the way assad has had to do up to now. but you know if you're going to live from moscow still a hand for you this hour progress reports as experts friday's tell us the cause of russia's unmanned spacecraft crash will look into how it will affect the crew at the international space station who've been awaiting vital supplies. and discover how people in a central russian region are taking the initiative back into their own hands to change their communities for the better. or for that the richest sector of french

and today we are in the care of region it's famous for its natural beauty and stunning countryside and as we explored the region artie's either abroad explains how people there are taking matters into their own hands as they tackle local problems. social logical surveys regularly show that russians are more concerned with practical problems with social issues that are with abstract freedoms in a region such as the care region one of the poor regions of russia want to get subsidies from moscow these practical problems are basically pressing problems of infrastructure problems are providing services so here with a limited budget they've come up with an innovative way of solving the most pressing issues they got what they asked for to slice a sound bank and it be charged might not seem like much but for small community in
2:21 am
the care of region they become a leisure hotspots they used to be no one here it was abandoned now when the sun is out you can get at least. this type of project only cost five thousand dollars but it was no money in the local budget to build safe access to the lake and so the regional government introduced a local initiative scheme when they heard of it the village club together and applied for a grown from a special fund with the beach was late. for british people who were consulted over it as a decision it's a builder and i think it's a result people look after this properly properly idea of micro projects it's called of jointly by the world bank and the cure of administration they provide the feds and money while local citizens have to point the rest often go round houses to collect the cash nearly two hundred micro projects will be built in this region but end of the year. we want to change people's attitudes instead of expecting things
2:22 am
done for them we want to take initiative we are giving power to the people. this might look like a women's institute meeting in a village hall in fact the participants are thrashing out the details of a new road there is heated debate about the quality of the works and what the builders are falling behind. other projects the financing of the road is completely transparent we know where everybody is going. village of color cheeky as just a refers and residence several hundred of them petty criminals serving their time in a labor colony it is one poorly stop shop and for every road it builds good terms more that needs to be repaired. the micro project will not solve its problems because for now the government can't just rely on its citizens to come up with a solution for every single infrastructural problem that faces russia but in a place where major decisions are often made with little consultation but
2:23 am
a foreseeable future this program is a good idea. the person next to me is. a local journalist so you should be well aware that main issues the main problems in this region we've just seen some of the social issues and some problems they tackle but in your view what are the most serious what are the most pressing issues that face the kind of regional. world in my opinion the problems of young people are really serious in our region because young people can't find it and i mean it's europe with a good salary for example according to my own experience it was very difficult for me to find a quick tour and of course that's why people hoping for schools they try to maybe begin a better life they move to another seat just more support this and that is going to leave seat is. a think it would be better for them well if you work as
