still burning. it's twelve o'clock noon on saturday here in moscow it's r t for you today from me in the entire news team welcome to the program there's real hope that finally some kind of deal over iran's nuclear program could be close or the foreign ministers from the six negotiating world powers are changing their shared jewels to join the talks and help to overcome any remaining obstacles to a landmark agreement with lottie's in geneva with the russian delegation headed by the foreign minister sergei lavrov we can all join us. live to get the latest on this so good to see you polly how are the talks progressing any progress being made and honestly of people still optimistic about some sort of good outcome here.
well john king. harry and william hague are expected to join the foreign ministers head that have already gathered in geneva and certainly a sense that a deal is imminent we've had security beefed up around the intercontinental hotel that's just behind me yesterday we were reporting from right outside of it today we've had to be pushed back out of the corner of my eye i can see several policemen and there's a real sense of heightened tension around here and security and as you said we are here with the russian delegation normally that affords you extra access an extra information but these talks have been shrouded this time around in a must say of degree kristie the negotiations taking place behind closed doors and . are extremely wary of any leaks coming through into the media before pen is put to paper and that deal is signed in fact some diplomats said that the
reason these negotiations folded last time around at the eleventh hour or two weeks ago was precisely because of leaks getting through into the media so everybody had been kept. in a sense of mystery but we have had from a chinese official that it's all entering the final moments and suddenly all the signs pointing to that we've had progress not sticking points that we've been talking about for the past two days of iran's insistence on the recognition over its rights for your a medium enrichment apparently that's been overcome in the draft of the agreements so what are they getting in exchange well. in exchange they should be receiving limited limited limited relief from economic sanctions mistakes and months this is a deal that has. for over
a decade but certainly all the signs the security the foreign minister. flying in chris around the toolbox today pointing possibly. being made out today and we're going to be watching it very closely and bringing you all the details. for your reports throughout the day live in geneva for the continued talks on iran's nuclear program. while another obstacle to a long awaited deal is israel stole into any compromise position is impacting on the negotiating stances of france and america. john limbert the former u.s. deputy assistant secretary of state for iran who was also among the diplomats held hostage in tehran over thirty years ago he says just as tehran has grown more flexible israel has become more hardline. but we've seen i think in the last three or four months since the election of president president rouhani and since some of
the statements of the support of the supreme leader is i think a change of direction and a serious change of direction in terms of joining the international community but my israeli friends tell me is within israel itself there's a lot of controversy over the issue of iran and what should israeli what should the israeli stand be and some of the more extreme stands that are coming that coming out which oppose any any deal are creating concern in is a concern in israel a lot of people are quite have been criticizing the prime minister look what. prime minister netanyahu seems to be asking for is not a negotiated deal but in fact an iranian surrender where they are pressured into simply giving giving up well that's that's not a negotiation that's a so that's
a surrender and if you get if you do squeeze somebody so hard that they surrender such an it such an agreement simply isn't going to last hereabouts they will be following the progress of the nuclear talks in geneva throughout the day both on air and online and on to dot com also wire out the website we're asking you about the prospects of an agreement you can go there and have your say on this controversial issue there. now here on r t the e.u. has accused russia of blackmailing ukraine into ditching plans for european integration and joining a regional customs union instead moscow however says kiev for scared away by the e.u.'s political and economic pressure of discontent over the abandoned trade told we think he has been brussels reached the streets of the ukrainian capital thousands joined a second day of protest despite the government insisting a deal would have devastated the country's economy alexi had a chef he looks at the broken expectations. back to square one for ukraine's
politics or kiev central square to be precise in two thousand for the orange revolution started here independence square the event which dramatically changed political life in ukraine and set it on the year integration course nine years later the square is filled with people again only this time they are here because their president took a turn around well these protesters have been furious with the decision we have to fight for an independent ukraine we have to fight for tomorrow other people believe ukraine may have in fact dodged a bullet. you decision to suspend the preparation of signing the association agreement and zone of free trade with the e.u. is the only one possible in the current difficult economic situation which we now have in ukraine do you have a delusion that life will be better in the e.u. talk to. polish people talk to gary and right now the e.u.
is in a. kind of a death spiral the e.u. has little right now to offer craning hours after the korean government's decision reports emerged that unocal which told his list when ian counterpart in a phone call that russia economically blackmailed key if out of signing the deal with the european union. i don't know what the ukrainian president was talking about with his lithuanian counterpart maybe we should all scar american friends about that. well of saying that ukraine would not enjoy trade benefits with russia if it formed a free trade zone with the e.u. is blackmail how would one describe these statements by european officials the signing of the most ambitious agreements the e.u. has ever offered to patna country would have sent a clear signal to investors worldwide that ukraine is serious about its modernization pledge and becoming a predictable and reliable interlocutor for international markets. when i heard and i just found out yesterday that ukraine has suspended not cancelled but suspended
negotiations with the e.u. he wants to review everything we heard from the e.u. to ukraine all the way up to organizing mass protests this is pressure and blackmail it having received no promise of compensation for potential economic damages from aligning with the e.u. kiev wants to create a three party commission with brussels and moscow to find a way to alleviate those losses which suggest unocal which has merely suspended not council the association strife the opposition meanwhile says it will continue taking people into the streets and demands that the president is impeached. reporting from kiev ukraine let's get some more details on this now i'm joined for this whole issue with kiev i'm joined by political analyst at dmitri babich here on the program good to see you today so ukraine's been planning this trade pact with the e.u. for quite a long time now why why do you think the sudden late uta. well
i think that it became clear to the ukrainian president general quaritch that if you sign is there deal he is not going to get anything financially from the e.u. or there will be just talk about democracy and does all north political stability and human rights is not going to get any money from day you and he was going through was a lot of money because russia would protect its. because ukraine becomes a part of a free trade zone with the e.u. and the russia still has an open border with ukraine and then you know the goods the merchandise from the e.u. will be sold all the way. you know devastating the russian industry without a new customs duty for the russian budget so it became clear to me that his losses would amount to about eight million dollars before their end of this year he
made it clear to the u.s. officials they didn't listen to him instead they just demanded more time with their ukraine really is a steamer and that was you know the straw that broke the back of the camel the deal was suspended dimitri of brussels is saying that it's very disappointed with kiev for doing this last hour u. turn does that sound sincere to you considering what you just said that they were offering ukraine very little in the first place. well it's very interesting that the process of sun washington are usually very concerned about ukrainian soldier in kiev. ukraine has some kind of a problem with russia but they make such statements about solving decisions over sovereign state now they say they're disappointed they say that there may be a way the ukrainian decision. it's interesting how does that jive with the ukrainian sovereignty and independence all busy these people don't trust and
independence why would they require russia to respect how to be true we've already heard from the russian president vladimir putin has made some accusations about europe's behavior during all of this let's have a quick listen here to what the russian president had to say when i heard so and i just found out yesterday that ukraine has suspended not canceled but suspended negotiations with the e.u. it wants to review everything. from the e.u. to you. all the way up to organizing mass protests this is pressure. that is responding to the obvious that. you can assure us that it's well i think that what the audience said is something that we would expect from him because i think both sides wanted ukraine to because. you know every one of them of course russia wants ukraine to be in the same economic space with russia and of
course russia doesn't want ukraine to turn his back to russia and to go to the e.u. but first you know this agreement is not to on the ukraine's membership in the is just some kind of an association agreement which a lot of people say will be bad for the ukrainian economy at least in the short term at least during their next two or three years and ukraine is in a very difficult situation right now it's in a recession so they you was just. you know trapped in ukraine without painted any kind of money dimitri you know if we can just put politicking to the side here ukraine society is deeply split over this issue here but if there was a referendum what would be the likely outcome do you think. oh well i'm sure that more of the people would vote for a union with russia and with the customs union if you look at the ukrainian elections ukrainians or was elected to their president or they came to that who
said he was brought russian the only exception was the election in two thousand and four when as a result of these very dubious your so-called orange revolution we stay you. came to power before that the ukrainians for. because. you know he was a former a member of the central committee of the soviet communist party he presented himself as a role. because he was from the east of ukraine so he is more pro russian just recently in two thousand and four young. because he was so with the ukrainian people have clearly given their mandate for a union with russia many years ago is just the western media that uses that political analyst joining us live here on r.t. many thanks indeed. online we have lined up the five reasons why you
decided against further european integration at all dot com you can share your thoughts in the comments section well still ahead for you here on c brace thousands of the fascist activists travel to the city to commemorate the death of a colleague twenty years ago. washington considers putting a price on protest driven by america's all powerful oil lobby. in the future. muslims show will in the public take knology keeping the moscow metro rolling. ways in the oil industry and the dream team of robots to places too dangerous for humans. to need for the latest news in innovations here in sydney. we've got the future.
again if we take out your personal example of the government tapping your phones and you know you see them later on to the years later you know some governments can't afford to do that not only you know again some prominent journalism homes again some has a state i remember thinking at the time and i discovered all this if they were tapping my phone for this in consequential. nation been tapping into the telephone. with us or what are you today it has been to the north pole even to open space but now the olympic torch for the twenty fourteen winter games in sochi has reached new
depths it's plunged down into the world's deepest lake that of siberia is lake baikal and brown was there to see. you're watching the climax of this very special torch relay. where the olympic flame is making history and once again it's been lit and passed on the water by a team of three divers and now it's been given to the aptly named. who even without his wings is happily flying with the top and his job is to take it to the shore where it will light up the olympic cauldron. a fitting climax to a spectacular so it's one of brushes most beautiful national landmarks. thanks for joining us here on r.t.
several thousand people are expected in a march to remember and fascism activist murdered in the early ninety's germany's still striving to ban far right parties you know political and social views the country is trying to forget. all of the reports. the horrors of germany's history with the far right that perhaps no better illustrated than here in central berlin at the memorial to those who were murdered during the holocaust nacer on saturday there was potentially going to see clashes between far right neo nazis and and the fascist groups both here in berlin other cities and towns around the country now here in berlin taking part in the memorial to the murder of a n t fascist activist who was stabbed to death in a berlin metro station twenty one years ago now in the past that house resulted in clashes between the far right and the far left now to find out
a little bit more about the role of the far right and how they still exist here in modern germany i'm joined by dr gideon bosch thank you very much a historian and political scientist now. we stood next to the holocaust memorial perhaps there is no more poignant memorial to the horrors of naziism how much do these neo nazis relate to the the dictatorship of the one thousand nine hundred forty s. . definitely proud of source regime and so they want to establish a rule comparable to nancy with the who are these people where do they come from within society i mean you look around modern germany the reminders are still there of the the suffering of the german people on the nazi ism how can people turn towards images like the swastika it's very different to. come to this movement very different ways to get into the basement but we find them many cases we find
a fascination of national socialist rule they want to as they are really fast fascinated by hitler and. and they do not believe they don't believe in what they learned in school about german and european history thank you very much that was dr gideon bush a political scientist in historian speaking to me about modern day neo nazi ism and fascism here in germany throughout the day i'll be bringing you updates on what's going on here on r.t. well there were unfortunate echoes of not so. much a group of soldiers laid out a symbol on the ice which well it's got more than a passing resemblance to a swastika or the full story. and the nameless uncounted dead and that's how they'll stay us congress rejects attempts to force the intelligence services to admit how many people are being
killed in drone strikes by the dot com. there's now an all new form of humanitarian aid for the twenty first century created by members of the occupy movement this is nothing to do with hunger or homelessness what a different key problem in the so-called first world debt the rolling jubilee project has already bought around fifteen million dollars in personal debt for americans around the country most of the financial obligations that they bought were for medical bills and now the people who had to pay these bills are free from their burden so if you live from moscow the shale gas boom in the u.s. has prompted congress to make amendments to the first amendment freedom of speech and assembly might now come with a price tag when it comes to staging an anti fracking protest if indeed the new
legislation becomes law the fine for speaking out could be five thousand dollars guy in a church a kind of. when romania granted the u.s. oil giant chevron more than a million acres of land to drill for shale deposits thousands of romanians took to the streets to protest they soon found out there was little they could do to protect their soil. in holland farmers stood up against chevron to fight fracking to no avail fracking pumps a high pressure cocktail of water sand and chemicals the underground to release shale gas from bedrock environmentalists say it has the potential to trigger earthquakes as well as pollute the groundwater and the surrounding countryside the problems with shale gas mining in poland is a question of secretiveness and kind of not telling people the real truth about
what's going on and not always telling never telling the other side the downside and i discovered this to be true with the polish government and the polish authorities because they are in fact on the side of these big corporations walski partly shot his documentary drill baby drill in poland he says polish they television refused to broadcast that you know normal people. can get the information to fight against the corporations and the normal people you know the middle class people their objective is really to protect the land here to protect their place and the chevron. the corporations are here to exploit the land and they're going to leave but the farmers will be here and this is really what the fight is about u.s. energy giant drilled both abroad and at home and congress has been more than helpful to them domestically this week the house of representatives passed a bill that would impose a five thousand dollars fee on anyone wishing to stage an official protest against
the drilling project. to become law the bill also needs to make its way through the senate before being signed by the president this is. pathetic. silly attempt by industry to squelch democracy opponents of fracking on both sides of the atlantic or even more fearful about the future of the democratic process as their governments and major corporations negotiate free trade agreements like the one between the us in the e.u. that would effectively enable american companies to bypass european courts and challenge e.u. governments and international tribunals whenever they felt that laws in the areas of public health the environment or social protection interfere with their profits and the opponents say it would give trans nationals even greater access to their soil and leave the people with a little less say about their land than a check on our t.v. . time here on the program to egypt we go bombing clashes between supporters and
opponents of the muslim brotherhood leaving three people dead including a boy police intervened far into the air and sharyn the crowds with tear gas in the rally marked one hundred day since security forces disposed a major demonstration by supporters of the ex-president killing hundreds. a twin bomb blast has killed at least five and injured eighteen people in pakistan city of karachi the explosive devices were hidden on motorcycles parked in a conference and no one's taking responsibility for the blasts which were in an area where both sunni and shia communities co-exist. a march marking the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of president john f. kennedy so protests and scuffles with police demonstrators shouting the cia killed j.f.k. accuse the government of covering up the real story behind the president's death they also used the occasion to claim freedom of speech is under attack in america a memorial ceremonies were held in the city of dallas where kennedy was shot. up
next here on c checking all the hottest gadgets and gizmos technology update coming your way. there is now an all new form of humanitarian aid for the twenty first century created by members of the occupy movement this is nothing to do with hunger or homelessness what a different key problem in the so-called first world debt the rolling jubilee project has already bought around fifteen million dollars in personal debt for americans around the country most of the financial obligations that they bought were for medical bills and now the people who had to pay these bills are free from their burdens the group claims that the secondary debt market is very cheap and
that they are able to buy the nearly fifteen million dollars in debt for only four hundred thousand dollars this secondary market exists because banks try to sell consistently unpaid debt to third parties for less than a nickel on the dollar right now i would be begging the rolling jubilee project to get rid of my college loans but alas this is always purchased anonymously so it's all pure luck who gets their debt purchased the important thing about this project is that they're actually doing something against an evil system instead of just blogging about it and although fifteen million dollars is a time a need to drop in the bucket it may have really saved the financial lives of many americans but. that's just my opinion.
hello and welcome to technology updates on today's show we learn about the technology that keeps the moscow metro rolling. new serving a modern techniques make waves in the oil industry. and we take a peek through the innovation looking glass in this month's focal point. but first today's technology means that robotic help is no longer yesterday science fiction making many walks of life both easier and safer and this is especially true of this next robotic dream team. brains overbroad the world is a dangerous place so robots are frequently used to scout out areas and perform tasks to hazardous for humans in addition to the classic humanoid design is often sent to nature for inspiration this is resulted in myriad weird and wonderful creations but even if we have to go in harm's way a robots will put us back together again if things go wrong however building
a machine capable of such precision in highly demanding environments still requires a human touch. set up in st petersburg twenty three years ago the accounts employs around a thousand people it's forged a name for itself as a top supplier of high tech inspection and maintenance robots for the nuclear and oil and gas industries the company of ships around twenty thousand pieces of equipment to twenty three countries around the world but the applications of these products on just limited to earth india conses even manufactured components for space ship docking mechanisms and electro mechanical fuel valves for launch. vehicles we call so with the company's deputy director to find out more. mission is to ensure complete control over manufacturing processes and high tech product development we have over three hundred engineers and specialists who from project scope document drafting process development and implementation of create the technology to make the product which is then manufactured using the equipment
located on our site here so instead of samples tested and delivered to client. one of the secrets behind the company's cosmic success is it takes production facilities which occupy around five thousand square meters and continue to grow many of the products play a vital part in the safe operation of energy production facilities so failure is simply not an option so three ensure the quality of his equipment remains top notch the company's hundred cakes the best tooling machines from supply is around the world while all these high end machinery may cost a pretty penny the full cycle production means that the company can design and build the products at the drop of a hot disability is not only the company oldest in the likes of general electric but also resulted in a rather motley crew. since two thousand and five for the nuclear boiling gas and space industries the contest designed and assembled.
