forecasting twenty four seven live from moscow you're watching our take now there's an eastern european economic get together starting on thursday but there's one country in the wings which is having trouble making up its mind days of protests and violence in ukraine demanding that their president gets on with signing up to closer ties with the u. even though he knows he's being hasty could be costly. skis following the protests . protesters still continue in kiev they lost it overnight despite temperatures dropping well below zero and right now several thousand people are besieging the government building in central kiev and there's been a warning coming from the authorities for the general public to abstain from any kind of provocations because they had information that some provocative groups were preparing some royals and even and the possible attempt to take over the government building that's why you can see there's heavy police presence riot police are all over the place i when i walked here to the government building i saw literally
8:02 am
hundreds of riot police all over the place they're securing every governmental building the parliament of the government building and the administration of president building and judging by the fact that these people have ten counts across the city they're not willing to go anywhere until friday until the summit and they're still clinging to this last hope of signing your association deal during the eastern partnership summit even though there are serious assurances coming from the government that this deal will not be signed and it's not so difficult to see why judging by the numbers and figures that may cause a serious collapse of the ukrainian economy let me break down some of these because for you the u. turn may have standard few people but it's no surprise to those who've 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 one hundred thirty six billion dollars it would have cost over one hundred billion dollars to modernize factories not all can so closures would trigger massive unemployment and risky of cannot afford especially since the e.u.

8:05 am
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 one say yes this will be expensive we have not realized it yet but we just have to wait and see what being a gibbs can do 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. so it seems europe

8:11 am
apart the result is what's known as comfort zone segregation which is food could lead to hatred and intolerance among communities it's even led to have the country's long time figurehead on racial equality to say that britons have been in denial on the issue for far too long so referred explains all that warnings that 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 is being leading some research with think tank demos and the university of london and what they've done is 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 sheffield the
8:12 am
local community has hit the headlines over recent weeks the concerns raised over community tensions between the roma 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 trashed and acknowledged because of course it does have very serious implications for community relations. and it's estimated around six hundred thousand white britons left london in the last decade to settle in other parts of the country that are predominantly white politics professor eric kaufman from the university of london believes they are driven by the need to stay in the 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 but you can get
8:13 am
a situation where like in parts of east london or 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 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 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 edward snowden saying cruising down the streets of the u.s. capital well imposed a full many way ahead we look at a prominent ad campaign to support the whistleblower as activist. they've had enough of being spied on also coming up this is no. this really is red square at
