grantland our equipment. with the outside a nice sort of since. the life of the tundra is harsh and so before winter hits many of the children are helicoptered to the center of the district and not even marked for boarding school. in the knesset students learn different languages utilize modern technologies through specialized grant programs and even learn arts skills all within a protected environment the school was founded and named for and. a scientist who wanted a better way of life for his people but even with the most progressive ideas and education many say they don't want to trade the modern life for their beloved. i have returned to the tundra and i actually like it here if you're outside there's fresh air fresh water looks at the site you can see deer it's a joyful sight. a sentiment that hopefully ensures that russia's northern reindeer

1:32 pm
hello to you in a very warm welcome to business see stock markets of some of the most troubled european countries are among the best performers indices of greece spain portugal and italy that were singled out in a group of countries called pigs grew on average by around thirty percent in the second half of this year while russia is my sex gay dual just a third of this let's speak more details with our correspondent on a particular was looking closer at the story so what is going on well dmitri it looks like all the european pigs contra's turned out to be very bullish this year
1:33 pm
they did make investors happy and those who bet on them and invested into their indices could earn up to forty percent just in the second half of the year where was that was now wasn't greece and if you remember the contra stock market plummeted like fifty percent last year and all of the other big countries such as portugal italy and spain all gave that about twenty percent and even more well in russia we have seen over this period minor growth ten eleven percent does that actually mean that investor focus is switching from bricks to pigs in the investors and analysts i've spoken to say that basically is the case and that's because brick countries are not offering that significant growth anymore if you remember a chinese shanghai composite is trading in the negative territory and it was like minus two percent during the day and that's because of slowing growth basically in rights and brazil brazil right now is actually nominally seven percent plus but if you take the currency piracy then it's around minus five percent russia russia is
1:34 pm
not that bad is that if we can see our graphics. graphics hopefully ok that that will be about eleven percent of the fed can cough right now but it's not that bad but still investors call the zero in the russian stock market a lost. here because nothing really happened you know what i mean i mean we've had plenty of news we've had the presidential elections most of us were anticipating we had was the right trial lines but they're all of that had very little effect on the russian stock market because the main driver investors were expecting was russia's huge vicious privatization program and that didn't happen the character lagged being delayed and only right and it just didn't happen and they expected the level it was what was very bank as people maybe megaphone but i think if there there was a lot of liquidity injected into the global economy from the u.s. and from the european central bank and it was all the really directed to the
1:35 pm
european countries some investors saying that speculators just love those especially troubled european countries because they were extremely sensitive to any news and they offer a drastic change and we have to remember that all of this money being injected totally does not reflect what is happening in the economies of these career of capital right some analysts say so but many are still saying that the european market is very attractive really very attractive because the region is overall very cheap because some of the global industrial leaders still trading at the discount there and what's most important is that there is a lot of liquidity waiting for news on stabilisation speaking about cheap russia's price to earnings ratio for stocks is actually the lowest twenty five markets that bloomberg is monitoring i mean what are the prospects for russia that's true prospects very good if we'll see privatization because privatization privatization
1:36 pm
as the name rivals is ation is name of the game analysts and investors waiting thank you very much on record for this. ok let's move on almost almost three billion dollars of defense mega deals have been signed between russia and india president putin is on a visit to new delhi cementing ties with fast growing economies as they continue to try and boost the global influence but if a national with more details russia and india have signed three billion dollars worth of arms contracts today this includes a purchase of forty two additional russian fighter jets which will be assembled here in india and almost sixty multi-purpose helicopters currently the rar more than two hundred fighter jets and dozens of russian choppers in use by india's air force in the investment field the two countries are also making some significant progress the russian direct investment fund and india state bank are setting up
1:37 pm
a two billion dollars consortium that can invest into different projects in both russia and india in never gave technology area india will participate in the development of russia's. global positioning satellite system papers have been signed today here in delhi russia and india have also discussed cooperation in gas and all the traction engine is considering to join in all exploration in russia ahead of the meeting and to india both sides have reported trenton over is expected to reach a record ten billion dollars this year which both sides are planning to double in the next three years. after you from delhi india. indeed there was very of a national secular what's happening on the markets we start with currencies where as you can see the russian ruble is still gaining against both the dollar and the euro many reasons for that actually and this is on the back of companies still requiring funds in rubles in order to pay of taxes and also the fact that the
1:38 pm
central bank in russia has been trying to keep the ruble strong in the last weeks of december in order to keep a leash on on inflation to move over to the u.s. markets over there we have the dow jones and nasdaq in very thin trade both losing right now with no basically deal in sight on avoiding the fiscal cliff and of course because of christmas we have volumes around seventy five percent lower than usual all right a short christmas eve session in london and the markets were actually shut in frankfurt the footsie as you can see is slightly up around a quarter of a percentage point and it's driven by minor stocks like the down to resources which is gaining around two percent and in moscow there was also very little activity on the markets which are preparing for hibernation or partying whatever you call it during the long jan your holidays are flat and mixed and of the day as you can see
1:39 pm
is burbank and lukoil some of the biggest losers losing more than one percent on the my sex or i that's it from the business team for now we wish you of course very merry christmas so you can find more fresh stories and interviews that are to dot com for slash business and a few minutes what charities exclusive interview with russia's foreign minister. looters that takes your breath away few tourists travel to these paul it's no prepackaged comfort but the joy of the wild is guaranteed if gagne's a zoology professor he works in the u.s. and travels to these remote areas in russia every summer as he says he confines untouched landscapes like this anywhere else in the world we're going off the list below sea line. if i go wrong the wrong and surprisingly you'll go straight to the
1:40 pm
water and so we did our plan to get closer to the sea lion and shake its flipper failed before. one animal whose par you definitely wouldn't want to shake here is the brown bear you can literally spot a grizzly here by every small weaver. where the bears are so full that they have a very well for the open food that we have to keep an aisle when there are at. them . so we won't go yes we shall but people require. it. and quiet we went but the wind was not on our side and the bear got away and they're usually the first to avoid contact with humans but during spawning time when both people and bears go fishing people often shoot at them to scare them away and every year here in the region you hear about someone being killed by the
1:41 pm
predators. but at the mother down nature reserve where we are no one disturbs the bears. another local resident who hates his piece being disturbed here is the howlers sea eagle in has a wingspan of two and a half meters ignace only here in russia far east because of the bundles of salmon and seagulls which feed the giant bird in his studies if gainey focuses on birds so he took me to one of his favorite places here mara island it has the biggest colony of seagulls in the region and the climb up was tough. but the prize was worth it. if there was no city or to hear it. there you will have tons of people coming here not just to get some for me on the beach here nothing is guaranteed you have to struggle to get your piece
1:42 pm
of bread there is nothing really how you can apply oprah did you have to align yourself a few bucks. or so we're going to have to be the bad. maybe for the wildlife here is the lack of visitors is for the better but when you stand on top of four niland like this you just can't help wanting to share the beauty. russia's foreign minister thank you very much for being with r.t. today my pleasure now your ending your ear with
1:43 pm
a visit to india russia has been clear in its support for india's aspirations to become a permanent member of un security council how do you think the much criticised you and security council will benefit from india's participation. first of all i would say that criticism is not always warrant that the latest wave of criticism was related to the fact that the security council allegedly cannot act on syria. by these by the desire to see some action on the part of the security council. critics wanted the posse resolution under chapter seven which provides for the use of sanctions on the use of force eventually and russia and china are convinced hundred percent that this would be a disaster and that this would be the beginning of a very slippery slope and will bring us to the libyans in the area which we cannot afford anymore and the region cannot afford the security council was once expended
1:44 pm
only in the category of nonpermanent members and now. after several decades of the council functioning in the unchanged composition there is a very strong movement towards expanding its membership to better reflect the. pluralism of the of the world community and we are strongly in favor of this we are convinced that the developing countries and the first of all the new economic and financial leaders in the third world countries like india brazil for example that they must be represented in the security council and we would be in favor of making them new permanent members provided of course the decision is taken to create new permanent seats like yours said russia is permanently blocking
1:45 pm
attempts of some of your own security council members to pass a resolution for that would allow an f. or an intervention into syria but do you think a military action could still play take place going around the un like it happened in case of iraq. well not only in case of iraq but also in case of the former yugoslavia yes it is it is possible and you just cited one example there are some others but i also feel that those who would like to interfere in the syrian crisis they don't want to do this without some kind of legitimacy or at least i would some kind of and action in the united nations which could be used to justify this as being legitimate some people would like very much to internationalize this situation and to expand the violence beyond the syrian border set them said being made to specially in cases when the refugees have to
1:46 pm
flee syria because of the disproportionate actions by the government forces but on the other side the deposition the armed groups of that position which are several which which are not united on this single come on the whole series of acceptable methods absolutely contrary to international humanitarian law. they can cause the just. the staging terrorist attacks and that it's very disheartening that our western call digs in the security council start that they refuse. condemning terrorist attacks in syria saying that yes there is ms bed but you must take into account the overall context of what is going on in syria and why people resort to terrorist attacks it's absolutely
1:47 pm
unacceptable and this logic we will might lead us if we follow this logic might lead us to a very dangerous situation not only in the middle east but in other parts of the world. and the west would begin to. qualify terrorist as. bad terrorist and acceptable terrorists. one more reason that arises time to time that could actually ok the foreign intervention is serious possession of chemical weapons do you believe that syria will use chemical weapons or is this another pretext for an invasion i don't believe syria would use chemical weapons it would be political. suicide for the government if it does and it is also accept that by. everyone including our western colleagues the europeans and americans that the biggest threat. in this
1:48 pm
situation is. the probability that the rebels might take hold of chemical weapons and therefore when while recognizing this when our western friends say but still the responsibilities with the syrian government even if the rebels they called it it's a very strange logic because at the same time there was a very people encourage rebels not to negotiate with the government but to continue fighting and giving them arms money and moral and political support so it's a very controversial position. in general the logic of those who say no negotiations with us it is really very controversial and very dangerous because. well they're not justifying what the government is doing they have been making a lot of mistakes have been using force disproportionately the security forces
1:49 pm
clearly work and are prepared to face the public. protests and the protests in the cities and in the villages they have been threatening you know to current foreign aggression not to keep law and order a civilized manner but their position is provoking the government as i said resorting to terrorist attacks taking hostages and also introducing into this conflict the stick there in their mansion which is very dangerous it is already reverberating in the muslim world. arab governments. and be. ethnic and confessional sic their income position of syria is so complex that if. the campus is
1:50 pm
established there it was very great all over the region but coming back to the present situation if people who say no negotiations with us it if they believe that . he's departure in whatever form is number one priority then they must understand that for this geopolitical goal of theirs they would have to pay the price but the price in the lives of the serious of the syrian civilians made of the claimant of patrick miss out on turkish syrian border that part of solution and where they really targeted that we recognize the right for turkey to think about its own security and the right of turkey to use for this purpose the international arrangements which turkey has in that particular case nato membership. and we accepted this as a given. on the other hand the more the military had to be or
1:51 pm
you accumulate in one place. the more risk you have that this had to or when they would be used. as for the. purpose of this deployment yes i read that here that some experts believe that if it is intended to prevent any. syrian crossfire. then it could be positioned to be different and as it is in the business to be positioned some people say it is quiet. useful to protect the raid that american the raid there which is part of the american missile defense system that building codes in the threat from iran. if this is the case then it is even more risky i would say because this
1:52 pm
multiple purpose deployment. could create additional. temptations iran rather than syria well that's what that's what some people say. the configuration as it is being presented in the media it. really looks like it could be used against their own you know syria is not the only issue between america and russia first thing obama did when he got reelected is that he signed the so-called magnitsky law that would sanction russian citizens and some russian officials what does it tell you about the new state of the russian u.s. relations with britain about my health but i don't think this was the first thing about one hundred first was reelected this was inevitable when. the senators some of the guardian and some other censored used this idea.
1:53 pm
it was clearly. to create catch twenty two for the administration because that ministration was moving the removal of jackson venue amendment with the support of quite a number of people on the hill. and this was absolutely obvious that the ricans wanted because it was rush accession to w two. keeping jacksonville and it would mean depriving the american companies of the benefits of. membership of the russian federation so they had to do this. anyway and then the republicans i think decided to have this trick and to hinge the jackson very. remove all on magnitsky act which was at that moment i think mostly. done against
1:54 pm
president obama. because as for the russian citizens who have been included on that list and they haven't seen it it's still. not published. if they want to prevent russian citizens they don't like the united states they can do it without their governments without any show well remember the off record conversation that obama and mediator had and obama promised to be more flexible right after elections but from what you're saying how how how much flexible can he really be or allow himself to be with this republican opposition in congress well i think that's the peculiarities of the american system and any congressman can freeze consideration of. very important issues just because the beef from his particular state is not being admitted to one country where enough for the senate the reasons and. the issues of
1:55 pm
global importance could be just frozen because of the. interest of one single state in the united states. and the interest having nothing to do with the substance of the issue in question. so sometimes the issues of huge importance like the you know israeli palestinian conflict and the need to settle it being kept close the just for years and years. because of the peculiarity of the american electoral cycles we would prefer. to approach international issues on the basis of the their merit and then the basis of the crying need to do something together without looking back at your domestic politicking interests so you know of all russia's foreign minister thank you very much for this interview thank you.
