president. the western media never labels those who attack russia as terrorists he was speaking about last week's boston bombings during the q. and a session with the nation and you're looking at live pictures right now. more. protests people direct their anger at the international financial institutions. and the u.s. again increasing number of detainees on hunger strike at guantanamo bay is the official figure closer to that claimed by lawyers since the very beginning.
7:01 am
thanks very much for joining us here on our today life in moscow global twenty four hour news. questions posed from across the country has been challenged on issues ranging from corruption and global terrorism in one response to the president insisted at last week's boston bombing prove his point that nations need to unite to stop terrorists let's find out the details what he said. and joining us live to see you all see the boston bombings or one of the early subjects that putin was asked about during his annual q. and a with the nation what did he have to say on that subject. well the tragedy in boston was definitely watched by the whole world and russia is no exception especially after it became established that the two men the couple meeting their attack were of chechen origin and the president did comment and said that it's very
7:02 am
troubling him how russia's antero campaign in the caucasus going to interrogate gains in the chechen republic of course were often presented in western media with a lot of them were lots of negative negative negative is not while the barest themselves were often presented to the public as freedom fighters. believe it was the show decision that most ordinary americans don't see the big picture but well i have a message for delish that as well as for everyone else who's interested in these global you know what i believe in russia itself is a victim of international terrorism it was one of the first victims i always found a disturbing when our western partners the media would call the terrorists the ones who could horrible atrocity less here in russia they called them rebels even provided information on the financial kind of political both directly and
7:03 am
indirectly the support was always a bigger stunts and all the time we always asked our western partners to back up their words about a common war on terror with action with closer cooperation and now the actions of these two criminals of the boston have been that we were right all along if you know now you go to the recent death of exile tycoon boris berezovsky is certainly caused a bit of a stir in the media did the president say that he had had any contact with barry's office before the former tycoon passed away. well you know which and indeed has confirmed that he received two letters from them by these videos off shore passed to them over by because of these former business partners one from russia and one from abroad and according to the president the exiled deceased are you cool did admit making mistakes which harmed russia he asked for forgiveness in these
7:04 am
letters according to the president and also asked to be given an opportunity to come back to the country while just remind you in russia because of he was found guilty of various offenses in absentia and was basically on the wanted list and was going to putin said that despite the mention in the media he still didn't want to publish these letters because even though he didn't they weren't closely acquainted but it was still a personal request which he didn't want to release into the mass audience but these are only a few subjects which were talked about since for the first time particularly of this q. and a session people are allowed to not only to ask questions but also to ask follow up so what we're witnessing here now for the past few hours now is really a discussion between the president and the moderators and those who want to ask questions on the other subjects that the on war corruption of course especially in light of the recent high profile scandals including the former defense minister and
7:05 am
the president did say that that investigation is going to come to an end and the court will decide who is guilty and who is not and who needs to be punished and another subject touched upon is a recent law on foreign agent which basically obliges n.g.o.s with foreign sponsors to register themselves as foreign agents to be under special control of the government was widely criticized by the opposition this law but the president did say that he really doesn't see what's the problem since the law doesn't actually ban in joules from operating in the country you just obliges them. to be under control of the state while similar a war has been. in the act it's an acting the war in the united states which is there since the middle of the nine hundred thirty s. and it hasn't really been causing that many problems or questions on society right r.t. so you got it was going to live in central moscow thank you. well you can watch the
7:06 am
live footage of our president putin secure and we're streaming it right now on our web site r t v dot com in the meantime though coming up here on our t.v. in just a couple of minutes we take a look at the brothers believed to be behind the boston bombings and the way they're portrayed in the global media. spain's unemployment levels of reached and president at high of more than twenty seven percent and that news comes as mass protests are prepared next door in portugal the people there angry at the billion euros in cuts forced upon them by the troika the trio of institutions who decide which nation is deserving of financial help produce all of this report. revolt of a different kind. on the streets of. to demonstrate
7:07 am
against the current government in the country and also the three. they've given to the. nation. the international monetary fund the european central bank one of the main targets. as well their own politicians that this isn't the only nation demonstrations take place. in spain around one thousand four hundred riot police. to try and make sure that demonstrations there. as we have seen in the past now it's not just the people of europe the. senior members of the european parliament. against the way that. the seemingly. very.
7:08 am
way that the situation. as neo colonialism. and lost respect for the e.u. markets the politicians say. again and they want to make sure that it. was a good idea. so another day another round demonstrations in europe people. with the way things that go. that changed to come quickly. reporting right there. to a known euro skeptic ahead of the u.k. independence party nigel for raj believes the days of the eurozone a number two and the people should withdraw their money from its banks before what
7:09 am
happened in cyprus happens to them. i think investors should be worried all over the eurozone but. i mean i i have been pondering the years you know what would happen when spain finally went back how would they possibly deal with the sheer scale bailout that would be needed perhaps with six hundred billion euros how could this happen not huge american support or global help what cyprus has done is give us the template of the what they will do in future is they won't be all countries out there belgium in and they'll do it by stealing investors' money by taxing people on their properties and by forcing central banks into selling their holdings of gold i mean this is a truly. situation if this plan is giving the green light to all the people who are affected will actually accepted what in a sense they may not have much choice because if their money is in bank accounts and literally that money is stolen from them without them having to give their
7:10 am
consent then it's difficult to see what they can do so my advice to people is if you own property and if you've got money in bank accounts in the eurozone get your money out before they come after you because it's perfectly clear that is their plan heading on from here mr ferrars we've heard some harsh criticism coming from some european parliamentary members against the troika conglomerate some of them saying that this entity should be even disorder would in your opinion that fix the problem it's quite right that there should be criticism of the troika really it's quite extraordinary that into all these countries that are in trouble the euro zone they've effectively given up parliamentary democracy and handed it over to the arrogant troika but it's all well and good but members of the european parliament criticize the troika given that they make up a third of the troika i would much rather see write off their part of the call leagues i'd rather see them supporting my plan which is to get the european commission building let's have emotional debate in the way they behave as part of
7:11 am
the troika mr ferrars my final question. do you think this current economic crisis in the euro zone could somehow lead to a hypothetical collapse of the whole european union there is absolutely no way that the euro zone can last forever they may keep it going for a few more years by invoking ever more extreme measures but ultimately the euro zone is going to break up the economics that break it up it may be civil disobedience or violence on a very large scale that eventually gets some of those mediterranean countries out and after that i think the big question that is well what is the european union for and i think the alternative model that a growing number of people you were talking about which is a europe based on cooperation europe based on trade europe based on nation state democracy i think that vision is one that only grow in support as the years go by. this is r.t. and greece is again turning to for some cash it wants to hold germany to a promise made to stump up the reparations dating back to the second world war but
7:12 am
berlin which has already provided the vast majority of a two hundred forty billion euro rescue package given to athens is refusing to talk about it more on the actions some european countries are using to ease financial strain when i was joined by dr frank up a tree a spokesperson for an anti e.u. party the alternative for germany good to see today thanks for sharing your time with us here on r.t. and germany was supposed to promise to pay back money it owes back to the days of world war two once germany was reunified some are saying the burden isn't even right to decide what do you say about that. i know because all the well they're going to germany is quite a new article so i just heard about this news from greece and find it strange because we should be separate between all political question go back sixty years ago and the current political questions and i would not comment on what government does or says. first of all their business and we are not in government right now
7:13 am
but i think recently that we should keep harper to questions of rescuing the eurozone on the one hand and going back to what were two problems so i think it does seem a bit of a stretch to go back many decades to that of the issues of world war two but the simple fact is that greece needs this money right now and you know there are certainly some saying that that athens is in a position to demand it just very briefly one hundred eight billion euros for the destruction of the greek economy fifty four billion euros for the forced wartime loan a total of one hundred sixty two billion euros total isn't it now the time for others to say look you owe us the money we need the money handed over. i haven't heard it being quite like this but again it is they were being done and i don't think it's a wise thing to mix up two completely different issues like understand the problems that happens have very very well i don't think they should be solved in
7:14 am
a political basis not on this one well fair enough and i understand you say let's separate the issues here from world war two but reparations for the current e.u. bailouts what's going on for greece but certainly some are saying this is a sign that countries are becoming more desperate and looking for more extreme solutions yeah well that's that's a very good example of what our purpose is and go in one of the euro zone i mean. our government says that we need euro to keep. your together i mean looking at this example it's very very clear on the both of us on the contrary the euro drives the cart and i think that's one thing we don't want to see happen see happening is that we are you talk about the euro dry are driving the eurozone apart are now by the lake. sorry you are ascribing europe as a continent and there's a as a you know national state apart and that's exactly why we as the alternative of germany say we need to get rid of you in this current state because it's going to
7:15 am
ruin europe in the long run. i mean you talk about ultimately the forecasts for the european union is not a positive one my latest data here today so if the public confidence in the european union has fallen to historically low levels in the sixth biggest edu countries what's next for the block. well i do want to imagine what's next but this numbers just show us. where those positions tell us that the euro zone is still stable it is not at all and if you look at unemployment rates in the southern european countries you realize that those. numbers of political problems that in the end was the turning nations against each other instead of working together and this is why we say that you have to start this year experiment as quickly as possible but also in a controlled manner. more complicated between european countries and well i mean
7:16 am
many europeans are holding a grudge against a european body is why don't known as the troika for what is seen as a poor response to the crisis what's your take on what they've done do you think should the troika have decision making powers taken away perhaps now it should not at all because it again you're living in one of national states and we know the european commission and we know you. just mentioned isabel is not of what it has been democratically elected by anybody i mean you can't expect a troika that has not been elected that it's not a democratic body for europe to decide important issues in national countries now they stand over there for example people how problems would be accepting the proposals all the decisions of the strike his. national states should be run by the elected government. dr frank a trio spokesperson for an anti e.u. party the alternative for germany thank you very much for joining us here on r.t.
7:17 am
today thank you. i have more news to come here on r.t. after a very short break he can stay with us. thank you. thank. you. thank you.
7:18 am
the book about international landlords in the very heart of moscow. good to have you with us here on r.t. i'm rule resewn the u.s. military is being forced to admit almost daily that the guantanamo bay hunger strikers are increasing in number but the official figure is still lower than that claimed by lawyers who say the majority of the one hundred sixty six have been starving themselves for nearly three months now the official figures rose exponentially after prison guards tried to break up the prison as protest get no
7:19 am
official say ninety two detainees are now refusing all food seventeen being force fed two are currently in a hospital and there have been several recent suicide attempts as well and the military's muslim advisor says that he's worried the protest will lead to deaths and detainees have grown desperate over the indefinite detention without charge some believing they'll never have a chance to leave the facility as artie's gaian a teacher counterpoints. u.s. officials now acknowledge that ninety two detainees source starving themselves of guantanamo the military has been updating the numbers since the middle of march saying at the beginning that there were fourteen people on strike the detainees defense lawyers have been saying all along there were many more around one hundred thirty they would say earlier this month the president tried to put an end to the strike by putting the inmates in solitary confinement authorities said they raided the communal living area and force the detainees into individual cells to prevent
7:20 am
them from covering cameras did help the number has doubled since then according to the officials again the numbers that we've been getting from defense lawyers were different all along out of one hundred sixty six one tunnel prisoners eighty six have been cleared for release so the sole reason they're still to help captive is their nationality i had a chance to ask the. assistant secretary on human rights about this collective punishment based on nationality here's what she said the president has made clear his commitment to closing guantanamo but this has to be done in accordance with u.s. law in consultation with the congress so it has to refer you back to their statements from the white house and the spokesman it's not just about those who have been cleared for release but many other inmates have never been formally accused of anything defense lawyers say it's been a dead end for them trying to get their clients out whenever asked about these issues the administration gives the same response they were first to congress what the lawyers say even with the transfer restrictions in place the current law still
7:21 am
allows for the administration to use waivers to release some of these men but they for some reason don't use those it's really not clear what can change the status quo at this point an advisor for the pentagon who visited guantanamo last week came back and said that he predicted the ongoing strike would lead to death so a long time muslim advisor ed. antonymous who goes by the name zack who goes only by his first name for security reasons he said quote there will be more than one death and then he added that the detainee called wanted to die out of hunger and thirst behind covered cameras and bowed and the question many now ask is what if someone really dies in this hunger strike will it change something in washington i'm going to check out. and we are bringing you in-depth coverage of the developing crisis at guantanamo you can always head to our web site on to dot com for
7:22 am
a full timeline of the events. the investigation into the boston marathon bombings continues with journalists hunting for every new detail possible cesar anastasio in the background now of the two suspects on the way being portrayed by the global media. a terror act that shocked the u.s. the suspects a nineteen and a twenty six year old that's our naive brothers joe hart was a u.s. citizen to milan on his way to becoming one but both of chechen origin the older brother to milan is said to have traveled to dagestan in russia for several months . and twenty four the older brother who was just on the show did make detonators put these things together we didn't rush and stayed in place nutrition despite the media rage these locations remain unknown to some lot of people are confusing it with chalk with
7:23 am
a vacuum and. yeah whatever it's called i know i did i can't assume that the majority of americans today even speak english young at the time of the bombings that star nine have spent the last decade living in the us in the country sure that you can before they get you know and while the origin and yet again religion are already largely gleaned as the root of all evil the investigation is only in its first stages somebody screwed up an innocent family maybe then became religious that was her mother and there are those who knew the two brothers cd media is taking it over the top they can't always be trying to rush to be the first ones to break a new piece of information local blogger luis vasquez who both brothers while he was here since he was little and if you didn't know a hard name you would just assume that he was an american around here we have a very diverse community and it's normal to hear for someone to go back to their country he says over sensationalizing that's our knives background doesn't get any answers to the question why being answered temple and even from coaching with his
7:24 am
brother they were never go on pounding their chest about their religion the most. conversation i've had about about their background is them telling me where they're from that's it that's it and then after that all this talk about boxing let's talk about lines that said samuel went to high school with joe hart. who has now been charged with the use of weapons of mass destruction so the media has a way of spinning things of course and with regards to his nationality. it shouldn't matter what his religion is either when i graduated there were four or five languages spoken just in my graduating class alone it is not unusual in fact it is very common to hear a foreign language he reminds us that the only suspect alive after the bombings has lived in america since the age of eight i didn't come here at a younger age you know from everyone that they will tell you and they have told me on certain occasions you know this person was part of the community the attack feels even more personal and devastating for samuel because he knew the brothers
7:25 am
are responsible but pointing fingers he says that police or religion is far from crucial what is solving this case and bringing justice that takes time time and effort that would hopefully lead to innocent people feeling safe again security in this country seems like it's more for show than for doing a lot of times unfortunately. that needs to change while the media pick apart every single detail they can lay their hands and ears on it seems that what should matter after the tragedy is tackling a global threat that has no faith upbringing or religion but has become the curse of the twenty first century not just here but all over the world and especially church in our party boston massachusetts. it is the second day in the trial of one of russia's top opposition activists alexina valmy faces up to ten years in prison for allegedly embezzling half a million dollars worth of timber from a state owned company novelli refuses to plead guilty saying he's been framed and
7:26 am
that the case against him is purely political his defense team yesterday tried to stall proceedings by asking the judge for more time to study the charges against their client after the court refused lawyers claim the judge was supporting the prosecution and that objection was overruled and the court said that is not expected before. i mean just a moment here on our team to be working at the set of course one of the only people out. this is misty's see. i'm not a fifty's because i'm a movie slogan it is what a.b.c. news is trying to find out when they investigated how lean finally textured beef is produced this type of quote beef has become very widespread professed food restaurants and supermarkets in the usa and has led to its south dakota based
7:27 am
manufacturer posting profits in the hundreds of millions of dollars but so what's wrong with some processed before might ask well the reporting showed that ammonia and other rough chemicals were doused on to the meat to kill bacteria and make it safe for consumption although this product is for some reason to create public backlash and many companies gave up ordering the mysteriously and finally took should be ok one of the mainstream media for once actually did something valuable for society and what did they get in return sued yeah the pink slime crew decided to sue a.b.c. news and forced them not to divulge their company secrets as well as punish them for defamation against their product which led to profit losses and guess what they won the lawsuit well the faming products that on mass could destroy the health of millions of americans is no blasphemy in my book but that's just my opinion.
