for its customers and unprecedented range of eco products what started as an attempt to bring organic food to the masses turned out to be almost impossible in reality no russian farmers can produce all this let alone in quantities needed for a large city so anything truly eco and bio friendly remains a luxury only a few people in russia can afford despite soaring prices for anything organic individual farmers find it hard to make their businesses profitable beaten by the supermarkets with their cheap processed food by the sec human founded and online organic store trying to help small pharma survive and at the same time improve the quality of life while food conscious customers just like him. initially we simply wanted healthy stuff for our families and friends now we hand pick each person involved in the production of meat or bread that we sell so that we know where the food has come from and the business is growing. some going as far as saying russia
with its plenty of land could eventually become an organic food basket for the whole world a very few europe in one hundred fourteen russia fed half of the world and we could easily get back to that but the state needs to start investing in agriculture. and while city dwellers are only starting to go back to their roots milledge is in russia's most organic far away corners are probably unaware of the treasures they could offer the russian klondike to be discovered. r.t. scary. our web site r t dot com is the place where you can find all of the latest news and analysis including this. two iranian warships have a sailed through the suez canal into the mediterranean about where they're headed plus. they're said to be as fast and furious as a ferrari or mazda roddy in their own way turtles nicknamed after the super cars
question on the dot com in the u.s. a defense secretary has welcomed afghanistan's involvement in peace talks with the taliban president hamid karzai has confirmed his country along with the u.s. are trying to negotiate an agreement with the militant group but artie's a military contributor says karzai continues to avoid the real issues that cause instability in the country. interview to a wall street journal was the most important public relations event for the president of afghanistan it was rather strange when mr karzai during this interview quoted unwittingly the former soviet president gorbachev referring to evgeny stand as the leading war in full display of poetical correctness mr karzai was careful the spared from
answering two most important challenges facing afghanistan right now that is there rampant corruption. that is suffocating the country. and the narco aggression. two leading factors there precipitated the implosion of five then a stand from within. russia and china have come under heavy criticism after their veto of a u.n. security council resolution on syria it's just the most recent example of the two standing largely on their own parties the resident asks people in the big apple why the two countries seem to be so feared and mistrusted. if you believe the news media you should fear china and russia this week let's talk
about why if they wanted to china could wipe out the us in probably three minutes but anyone with an atomic bomb true so why china in particular. chinese people are very dangerous why what has made you think that have you ever been personally threatened by a chinese parrot them no so why do you feel that way. they know kung fu i don't think were in that good of a relationship with them so should we fear them is that going to make relations better and we should fear them i think they should fear us i think there are some legitimate concerns about human rights there and i think tweeted to pay attention to what are their legitimate human rights issues everywhere don't we have them here in the us sure i think a different scale there but but yes we do have another places when there's there was stuff to find out so well that is a step to find out so well that will screw nobody's going to give us some money
away but we're participating in that why is it their fault because they're acting smartly. it's hard to resist last year i was in china i wasn't scared at all so i don't think you should be i don't think we should run our country like china or russia but i think there are some ideas and some kind of plans they have that help their economy so maybe we can learn from that's more amul aiding and looking up to rather than fearing but we're taught to fear them why do you think that is because fear keeps you in control if you are afraid it's easier to be manipulated by somebody telling you to do something rather than questioning what they say everybody is freak scared to do because the news and all the media makes people scare them specially in america why china and russia in particular are we made to feel scared because they're very powerful that's what we think ultimately they're going to be a part of the growth picture and they need us as much as we need them so why are
people scared of them why are they painted in this more of a picture it's always the same so maybe we should get to know them invite them over for coffee like that whether or not you believe the world should fear china and russia the bottom line to me is the old adage those who live in glass houses should never throw a stone. now time to look at some other news making headlines around the world for this hour. police in senegal have fired tear gas and rubber bullets at crowds of protesters the demonstrations were against the current president a one day running for a third term as head of state constitution allows for only two stretches in office but a court cleared him to run again as he took office before the term limit was put in place at least four people have died in the protests since the unrest began last month. pope benedict has appointed twenty two new cardinals of the vatican and the
