are we going to see constant tensions then because we saw children even charged with street rioting recently that suggests that these divisions are being inherited by a new generation. well in many ways that they are certainly true many of the people who were arrested young as eleven or twelve years old some of them weren't born at the time of the cease fire or were very young. there is power in a sense an inheritance social background and so on but there are many other strands in this and i think that to sin for it in terms of inheritance i mean isn't isn't always accurate we might also want to look at the social conditions the type of the immunities that the rioters come from as well ok we'll leave it there thank you very much indeed for joining us live there from northern ireland this is r.t. life here in moscow and russia's political elite is divided over the proper response to the magnitsky act the foreign minister believes americans should be. builder as a retaliation for sanctioning law makers linked to the death of
a lawyer in police custody that story ahead for you here. and the u.s. involved area planning to pose they're monitoring some experts suggest that washington is trying to counterbalance russia or not its own bats after a brief break. which is soften enough and knows that to ride a horse you've got to catch it first. for him it's a daily routine that you're soft as a horse breeder on the island of a horn at the heart of. his life on an isolated farm is about blue sky green
grass and his horses work there sometimes it gets lonely here but horses have become part of me now i've fallen off so many times sometimes they bite as well it's part of my every day like. i home suburban home to acknowledge brats locally just laugh for centuries most still live off the land of cattle and fish every evening local villagers place their nets and in the morning the catch is always good. we always have enough here. if by call is often called the pearl of siberia and horn is said to be the peril of by call it's all end of fake forests. and vast staps. it's also a place of traditions respected by locals and travelers alike. an
economist turned adventurer has crisscrossed by called shores and learned its customs well. you see pillars like this and thought to have supernatural powers every traveler who comes here asks the spirits to make the journey easier give them strength and fulfill their dearest wishes. virtually undiscovered by tourists until some twenty years ago i was cornish quickly becoming a magnet for nature lovers and few real sick others but those used to five star pampering and maybe even for a surprise the island's infrastructure has yet to catch up with the growing demand here quite some way from civilization here accommodation on the island is very basic so you can forget about a t.v. or even running water for most people a tent is the on the eruption but for those who come here it's exactly what they're
looking for. you need to buy coal can be unique trip of a lifetime and the local say once you've seen it you'll be coming back again and again. hello you're watching business on our t.v. welcome to the program russia has weapons exports this year reaching a record level of more than fourteen billion dollars that secures russia's. position as the world's second biggest arms export are the main buyers were india
and algeria and vietnam president vladimir putin has recently stressed that russia needs to normally keep the existing multibillion dollar contracts but also secure new ones to compete with fears international rivals so i've got pilbeam here to fill us in so kitty fourteen billion dollars that's not bad it's not that it's always actually being seen as a really positive figure really substantial is an improvement we'll be able to see that for three years running now russia's exports of arms have actually increased as i say three years running so that is substantial and russia now supplies weaponry to fifty five countries in toto really enough to maintain its position as the world's second exporter after the us also not just that but that's made
it in also announced recently that we have had this fourteen billion dollars made but in terms of contracts and deals made this year it's been fifteen billion dollars so it looks like those numbers attached are only going to continue increasing and it's such a fierce competitive environment because the contracts are so do they tend to last for twenty thirty fifty years but the u.s. is still number one yet and it looks like you know russia is doing its job is it catching up at all in terms of numbers if we look at the figures you'll probably be able to see that i would actually be honest and say no novel of mine but it's certainly going in the right direction and the us is definitely the top in terms of the wallet is definitely the one to be in terms of exporting and as you'll be able to see really annually in recent years it's been around the ball mark of thirty billion dollars the u.s. defense as you reported officially figures of thirty four point eight billion dollars to twenty. eleven and this year we don't have the official figure but is
expected to be around the same mark then as sasha really thought of it bruce said when he commented on the need to really compare themselves with the u.s. to compete with the he said he's made efforts to spearhead russia's efforts to fend off competition from the likes of the u.s. and europe as well so he he's got competition at the forefront of his mind at the moment but judging from the numbers that we've just seen clearly russia has like a very long way to go to go with the states so what does it need to do to edge closer to its main rival so i think president vladimir putin has definitely knowledge and he said right going forward this is going to be top of the agenda and he said that we want to keep hold of the contacts that we do have india the biggest seller of russian military arms wants to keep hold of india also wants to really concentrate on getting relationships with other countries as well really improving
upon those and also technology is always a big deal natascha because russia is often criticized for not being up to western standards because of the old soviet machinery so he's talking about diversifying and also in rooting in that sector as well not so competing with the west in terms of quantity but also china in terms of costing as well. as well being competitive and i'm talking about germany and france because they to make up the top five in terms of top five military weapons as well it does sound like it has pretty serious rivals and it is catching up so what does next year look like well i mean i mentioned india being the biggest just so they want to concentrate on that relationship and actually a big contract is coming up it's all insider knowledge at the moment it tends to be with this kind of industry but at the moment there's talk of them buying up forty two. super jet fighter jets forty two that's an excess and
a thousand engines as well and that would have mounted to seven billion dollars and that contract would run three to twenty thirty so that is huge and that would be historic for the russian economy as well as that we've got to do with iraq as well it's pending at the moment and is topping four billion dollars a moment so as i say keeping hold of these oil contracts i mean india if we talk about the relationship with india they've already purchased one hundred fifty jets from russia so they're definitely wants to keep hold of it in terms of competition as i say is fierce and really it's all about who's going to be victorious it is a real fierce weapons industry well it's definitely a battle that russia can't afford to lose you know sure indeed i think you very much respond katie. look at the international airport one of those three major hubs along with my dad of zero has launched a new terminal on tuesday
a correspondent explains why the capital's number three airport is trying to catch up with its rivals. this opening of a brand new hall is very timely since the russian capital is considered the second busiest in europe alone is ready its welcome there's a million passengers next year then you terminal has five floors with the basement level connected to russia's only underground railway station that's where drivers will be able to get on the train and arrive in the center of the russian capital within approximately half an hour now that's what concerns travelers but let's not forget that besides the airport services there will also be thousands of jobs and investment opportunities created around the block about getting back to the airport now which like i've already mentioned will be a major addition to the moscow transportation hub travelers will have a choice of destinations and airlines of course and they want to rush as a major carriers has already made a hole for themselves and let's now take
a quick look at the markets here in russia equities finished the day was pretty have to gains the r.t.s. finished more than one and a thirty percent higher the mice exposed and slightly more modest gains just under one percent as you can see there and on to the currencies here in moscow the russian ruble and did the session higher to both the euro and the dollar while the global economy is trying to fight the downturn that will doom the world famous call off the house and the lawn is finding its own financial battle the ballerinas and the chorus went on strike forcing the cancellation of the much anticipated rule meo and juliet valley from here scheduled for wednesday to performers claiming their working conditions are on bearable requesting more money a time when at least unemployment rate of more than eleven percent is one of the highest in here. and that's the latest from the business desk you can always find a lot more stories and interviews any time at r.t.

brighton. song from fans to impressions. starts on t.v. dot com. live from our new h.d. studios here in moscow this is t.v. news continues now and the tragedy in newtown and of interest call that left twenty six dead has sparked the long running debate of gun control in the u.s. more than one hundred fifty thousand americans have already signed a petition asking the white house to introduce a bill limiting access to firearms and started shooting and i went to connecticut still deep in mourning to gauge opinion that. to describe what's going on on the ground i think if we take all the sad words in the dictionary and combine them together there really is no way to describe no words to find to describe the
heartbreak really the grief the sadness the tears that we saw on the ground this town is really at the head of me of grief during this holiday season in this country more or less half of the population supports gun control and of the country is split and half believes that it's a civil right and it's a right that americans are entitled to so whether or not any legislation good strong legislation can be passed to prevent these kinds of things is a question we're going to have to wait and see exactly what kind of steps lawmakers take and what the u.s. president takes but certainly i'm sure people are going to be demanding this kind of something to happen so that these situations are so they don't happen in the future over and over and over again parents holding their kids a little tighter and a little longer these days oh gosh i'm so glad that i have so many opportunities to . i love you i'm so glad you're mine i'm so glad you're in our family i'm so glad.
you're here i'm still so glad that i'm having breakfast with you this morning candles flowers toys and grief filled newtown i keep hearing on the news over and over about the parents when they. were able to get their kids. to be told. their kids were called hoped. i could imagine. if i was in their shoes as a parent that my daughter wouldn't pick up home with the twenty first graders none of them older than seven were killed in a mass shooting at school twenty year old adam lanza lived with his mother nancy in a well off residential neighborhood on friday morning he shot and killed her with her own gun got into a car drove about ten minutes to sandy hook elementary quoting two witnesses he didn't say a word during the rampage eight year old zachary was saved by his teachers my
youngest son since and he had school and. he was in a classroom right near where the shooting took place and he was with a reading teacher just him in the reading teacher and she closed the door and took them into the bathroom they said bathroom floor until police came and said prayers and just stayed very quiet until the police came six school employees were also killed in the shooting including the favorite one of eight and then devon. in the end which i would like to encourage. the six and nine year olds held a garage sale with their family after surviving the shooting with proceeds going to their school they did tell them to close their eyes my my daughter. course you never listens so she she didn't and she's pretty she's been talking about that a lot she said she said mommy i can't get that body out of my head i keep seeing people's emotions are stretched to the limit make it in here like make it worth
something we could mean something you can't you could create change change that heart broken locals are now demanding. strict severe gun control. really. the second amendment to bear arms but. then when it was written three hundred years ago two hundred fifty years ago the forefathers never thought that it would come to this while politicians don't have the power to bring back the twenty little children who used to play on the streets they do have the power to decide what happens next in a country where two hundred seventy million firearms almost one per person aren't private possession. and r.t. newtown connecticut. russia's foreign minister believes it's wrong to ban americans from adopting russian children but said the u.s. should take responsibility for any dissent that a freeze could be part of moscow's response to washington so called act what if you got a position of reports. he was
a russia lawyer who is suspected of being involved in money laundering he died in prison before a court could make a decision on this case the act passed recently in the us is a law which allows sanctioning russian officials suspected of being connected to human rights violations but by many in moscow it's seen as an anti russian law and a proper response to it has become a source of some heated debate some deputies of the state duma want to see the response include banning all americans from adopting russian children in connection with all the cases of abuse sometimes even that's like the story of twenty one months a year old. who was suffocated to death after his adoptive american father left him in a locked car on a hot day in the open sun or the story one. american adoptive mother put her child on a plane back to russia along carrying only some underwear and
a note and it's not only the cases themselves but the. please to prevent these cases from reoccurring including the a lack of some heavy jail sentence. and if it's. we've heard from the foreign minister who also spoke against. those definitely some heated debates on this issue is set to continue as they do most reviews the draft.
syrian rebels say they've delayed the execution of a ukrainian journalist abducted in october and his kidnappers had threatened to kill her last thursday but one of the free syrian army they giving the freelance reporter one more chance reports had suggested the rebels were seeking a fifteen million dollars ransom from ukraine whose foreign ministry says they're doing everything possible to secure her release the armed opposition in syria also claims to have control of a palestinian refugee camp in the capital which was only a shelled by government war planes damascus said the camp was assisting terrorists hundreds of palestinian refugees and now flee to neighboring lebanon the. bug area has denied reports that it has invited the u.s. to permanently station military forces on its territory the country's defense minister responded following stories in the local media one of a ball game and officials have been holding talks with the pentagon seeking to
