starting coming to life in moscow with me marina joshie welcome to the program a thousands have rallied for a third day in ukraine's capital kiev were demonstrations continue over the government's decision to turn down an association agreement with the european union that has a president wouldn't call them to stop their criticism of russia over ukraine decision european bloc has accused moscow of pressuring key if out of signing the deal. was of the protests. we can see probably about twenty twenty five thousand people at the european square pretty much the same amount as last night and so far it's been piece of what we can never rule out that it may turn violent last night a minor provocation a minor incident led to a rather big brawl with the police with tear gas being used that was the thick of it i took pictures and videos with my with my camera indeed the prime minister reaffirmed that any association agreement with you would not be signed and it's easy to see why the economy is ailing and i will break down some of the figures and
numbers of how things stand for ukraine do you turn may have started a few people but it's no surprise to those who looked at the numbers the country's economy has been on a downward slope for over a year and a half with foreign debt at a staggering two hundred thirty six billion dollars it would have cost of one hundred billion dollars to modernize factories not all can so closures would trigger massive unemployment at risk if can not afford especially since the e.u. made it clear no immediate compensation then a huge drop in industrial output from last trade with russia which said ukraine cannot get loyalty points from everyone ukraine's decision has also started a political street fight between brussels and moscow as they do trade accusations of pressuring kiev. i wanted to ask our friends in brussels my personal friends in the european commission to refrain from harsh statements do we really have to stifle an entire segment of our economy just to get them to like us. the
fear is that with the free trade agreement already in place with key of the russian market could be flooded with european goods that could destroy the entire industries and see tens of thousands of people out of work. but those camping out in key of central square are adamant about becoming part of europe despite the risks to their own country's economic health. problem latest updates from the ukrainian capital you can follow our. our correspondence instagram and his god food ridge from the scene plus pictures from the heart of the demonstrations. you were banned ukraine were expected to sign a political association agreement as well as a free trade pact at an ego summit in lithuania later this week ukraine's president has said he will attend the meeting to explain why he have turned down the deal are
just being all over explains why some believe u.-turn is saving europe a lot of trouble. ukraine's decision not to push for closer association with the e.u. could turn out to be a blessing for those european countries there was going to have to be some two hundred thousand pieces of regulation that would have to be changed to allow ukraine to fit into this new partnership all of which would have had to it being paid for by the european countries now these pieces of regulation range from quite big issues right down to things like the type of screws used on road signs and the gauge of railway tracks and those are things that really european countries can't afford to be paying for right now we're seeing eighty four million people on the brink of poverty across the european union this is according to euro star the european union's own statistics organization youth unemployment is endemic across most of europe all of these things are leading europeans here in berlin to tell me
that well europe should look to put its own financial problems correct before it starts taking on the debts of others. so it's not the e.u. already has plenty of problems in its own right at the moment for example bulgaria will be joining soon i will only create more problems if you know we have. yes this will be expensive we have not realized it yet but we just have to wait and see. it's hard to say there are plenty of problems in ukraine in any case if we take them it should be done under different conditions. it seems year it may have dodged something of a financial bullet following ukraine's decision not to push for those closer ties. one reason ukraine shelved the e.u. deal was the international monetary fund severe terms for an aid package including the freezing of salaries and additional harsh budget cuts but got more analysis on the story plus all the latest updates had to r.t.
dot com. police in the egyptian capital cairo have used tear gas and water cannon to disperse crowds protesting against a new law that restricts public gatherings. right the operation of the bill requires police approval for public protests of more than ten people critics say the law is a major blow to the market in egypt as artie's belcher reports. protesters today who took to the streets in defiance of his very oppressive new law they told me they felt like egypt could turn back time to the mubarak days when these kinds of rallies were swiftly moved from the streets by security forces who are in fact to be given a carte blanche to use violence to move people on so certainly feels like we've moved into a new era here in egypt people were fired on by tear gas and water cannons heavily
beaten within moments of coming to the streets to protest in defiance of this particular new piece of legislation they were rounded up among those dozens that were arrested including sixteen women and very well known activists including one human rights lawyer now this sparked uproar across the country in egypt committee of fifty years in the last few days of drafting egypt's constitution had to suspend that session after over ten of its members walked out in anger over these arrests there's also been a lot of comments made by egypt's political faction saying this protest rule cannot continue so really it's yet to be seen what's going to happen but so many tips feeling like it's moving into a new era where people can demonstrate people do have a voice rights groups are saying freedoms are being really haven't cracked down on so it remains to be seen really whether the military backed government is going to be able to keep these very oppressive laws in place and keep restricting freedoms in this particular tumultuous political time and coming out on r t you would take
a look at the latest images from the syrian civil war. that. is the story in golf the violence international mediators agree on a date to resume peace songs. by the rebels fighting the regime in syria. meantime britain is turning into a color coded society with the u.k.'s why it's an ethnic minorities choosing to live apart that's according to a new study that warns of comfort zone segregation which could lead to division and has still be between the communities are the sort of first has more on the worrying trend. all that warnings that person could be drifting towards becoming a color coded society coming from the former head of the equalities and human rights commission trevor phillips now mr phillips has been leading some research with think tank demos and the university of london and what they've done is absolutely stated from between the two thousand and one census and the two thousand
and eleven census and what they found is during that time more than one hundred thousand people from ethnic minority groups had moved out of london but instead of moving to areas considered predominantly white have preferred instead to move to so-called mixed areas where there are already established minority groups here in the local community has hit the headlines recent weeks the concerns raised over community tensions between the population and other ethnic groups in that community but what this research is saying is that this could be a pattern that we see played out across the u.k. the segregation really needs to be dressed and acknowledged because of course it does have very serious implications for community relations across the way. it's estimated some six hundred thousand white britons left london between two thousand and one and twenty two i'm opting to move to areas with
a high white population eric katzman professor of politics at the university of london says they're driven by the need to stay in a majority. one of the negative consequences is that you are getting white british people avoiding very diverse areas so it's not because they dislike anyone group but they just want to be in a comfortable bitch already so you can get a situation where like in parts of east london new him or in parts of south london . each census there are fewer and fewer white british there and it is possible that there will be areas that have very few to no not know but very few white british people living there we see the same trend in the united states there are sections of the diverse cities like houston and los angeles where you are there are very few white people living there and that could be a concern for integration so it's just that inability to attract or retain white british population in some of these areas that are maybe not so close to
a central london but are not far enough away to be sort of leafy and green so it's that where you might get this effect. coming out later in the program on the way to such. the clock is ticking for the palin pick some twenty points even when it's a game join me to about with a yacht in the black sea resort as i bring you mole all the preparation of that town down to a hundred days before the paralympics. do you think humanity as a whole would benefit from living some parts of the world g.m.o. free just to play on the safe side view through biotechnology through research through genetic modification we can give those small holder farmers the opportunity
