to create pressure on iran carry out over our covert operations economic sanctions and now these new sanctions are not really even a like the old sanctions they are saying to the rest of the world if you dear do business with iran central bank if you buy iranian oil which constitutes half of the runs g.n.p. if you have any business with iran whatsoever you will not have access to american banks to american corporations to the american market this is in fact a blockade. russia is a legal vote is demanding that the country's central channels drop their an edge pro putin but this much is presidential election the standing for a fair election doesn't like positive tone of reports about the prime minister saying it undermines others' chances but as our reports every candidate makes good use of their a lot of their time. the
most eccentric media in russia's presidential campaign. the country's top populist let initially not see his showmanship and occasional this. is. so you see this little mangy donkey has become a symbol of our country the whole country has come to a standstill like this animal. will get moving again. i less than a month to go and five candidates have plastered the streets with election boosters doesn't view is what t.v. promos heated discussions have become part of everyday life. i doubt course in the race the billionaire businessman make a lot of promises they arrive all over new russia president known for his heights riches and playboy past is the only new face of russia's political scene formally and it's always party animal his reputation was once dented by an international sex
scandal which has come back to haunt him. related to how long it will our body and soul as for the elections will win them anyway you can buy anything so you can buy your victory to the remaining candidates are similarly a crowd united to band of the in time communist party leader has always relied on the bench and is a form about one third of russia's population now his laurels all contest is once again all of that from a payroll ship quality is the notion of things you can't even afford to milk now whether pensions. the competition has made you gonna reach out to younger generation and offer them a brand new slogan there's always a choice bludgeon of putin running for his that time has refrained from getting involved in the campaign directly he has controversially refused to take part in any t.v. debates sending his representatives instead and he's promised never to show his
