if you care about humans. this is why you should care only. europe waits to hear which way ukraine will finally turn over the e.u. deal while in kiev tens of thousands continue to push for the government to look west also. tremors in texas an unusually high number of quakes hit communities as locals and scientists point the finger at fracking and. drones are finding an increasingly wide use all over the world but we are not going to operate them as other countries do it's not a video game we bring you. take on u.s. drone warfare and his assessment of the russian city that will be hosting the winter olympics in two months time.
for the welcome you're watching r.t. with me. now the e.u.'s eastern recruits begin their summit shortly with ukraine's president firmly in the spotlight as he hesitates over signing up to closer ties with brussels meanwhile pro european demonstrations in kiev are into their fifth day with hundreds of people perceived in the parliament building day and night. is in kiev. they will be staying here at least until the end of friday and the protests are continuing day and night despite is getting very very cold. right now probably about ten to twelve thousand at the independence square in kiev and the idea here is that they're still hopeful that the euro association deal will be signed in vilnius right now it's very peaceful it's been peaceful for the last two
days but this may well be calm before the storm because we've already heard from several opposition leaders that they will be taking people into the streets if the deal will not be signed on friday promising a national wide strike and even what they describe as inciting a euro revolution we still don't know what that means but the korean government has been assuring the deal would not be signed looking at the numbers and figures its economy is already ailing with one hundred thirty six billion dollars in debt and you know modernizing the factories alone for the year standards would have cost one hundred billion heroes even more than that so different it's a risk which the creating government would not want to take we know that you know which travels to vilnius to attend the summit and just as it always is with the korean politics is a roller coaster ride you can never expect anything for sure the deal may still be signed my colleague both scott is now into this morning covered on all this ange the summit that was meant to see the formalities completed and ukraine assigned to join the e.u.
last week's decision from kiev to postpone preparations on signing that association agreement cause shock amongst many years of negotiations just to get to this point the ukrainian president viktor yanukovych shares that the terms of the deal were simply not agreeable for his country they smile meant in time now he said the financial package being offered by the european union and the international monetary fund left kiev a feeling humiliated those are his words and he said that any deal would only be signed on what he described as normal terms and he says that the six hundred million euros on offer to ukraine to modernize was simply you know. adequate now another large stumbling block of course was the future of former prime minister and jailed opposition leader leader yulia tymoshenko she is in prison at the moment but needs medical treatment on a bad back now the e.u. say that it was a precondition that she goes to get medical treatment in germany before that trade deal would have been struck but that money was blocked by. an interesting atmosphere here in vilnius over the next couple of days or so the british prime
minister david david cameron german chancellor angela merkel and french president francois hollande are expected to meet on the fringes of this summit to discuss their next move in dealing with ukraine the e.u. offer does remain on the table under president going to cobra charge until the eleventh hour to change his mind. apparently willing to budge from their stance say the prospect looks very unlikely let's go live now to done he's here he's an aide to the leader of france's national front a marine le pen thank you very much for coming on the program ukraine is still willing at the moment to read to paste a b.g. think it's howling at for a better deal. well of course we're giving you notes on it's of point of view that ukraine should be thinking twice about these officers who which were seen as seeing which even upsets their russian friends i mean what does the european union
have to offer when it is politically divided when it is rising unemployment rates rising what exactly do we have to offer even in terms only of markets and economies i'm not sure it's a good deal at all anyway for a train today in the short to many people would agree with you because of the cost of many cars that are involved including having to upgrade its industry which could run into billions but in the long term that would be a good thing don't you think. no because in the long term we see now that the future of the european union as it is built today is stupid i just. we believe that a stronger position is rising inside ukraine union especially from countries like france my party where we want to do to give enough. to the european construction which would be more a light confederacy which could include in this case countries like ukraine russia we know we are very frightened to see that these offers made by you can you were so
immature and actually not fitting at all in terms of strategy in these kind the regions we think as well about the black sea market and crimea itself which is very pro russian so this is not been and i analyzed very carefully this was really immature and not very good and do you think it's become politicized also i mean for example when you surprised that one of the conditions would be the release of the former prime minister yulia timoshenko for treatment from jail for treatment in germany that she requires for a bad back surprised that comments like that are made. well yes this is well this something which is along with this immature deal which was made that they're making interventionism inside the national politics of train i can totally understand the president of ukraine why he felt humiliated on this case they're mixing up with the international internet all this is difficult questions
of don't you get to go in there in a case. this is not good as well and we are state we stand for for sovereignty and liberty of people in the goodwill between countries as well yes it's true we believe as well it's not good to intervene in such matters. obviously i understand your train of thought here but we are also seeing pictures of hundreds of people demonstrating in the u.k. because they want to be more proud of europe what's your response to that in the united kingdom now in ukraine at the moment. there are pictures say that. yes i know and i've been to green myself several times i think train is divided into you have a pro european opinion you have pro russian opinion this country for me it's history and its geography is complicated let's not make things even worse i would
like to say to the youth of the train that they should not be too distant these utilised because are the sure to give a shit in these i'm not sure that markets are helping markets going to help to have better chances to get the shing in these as well so maybe we should figure out this out again more be more working on bilateral levels than through the european union which is collapsing itself and perhaps would a more mature a logical solution be three way talks between ukraine russia and the u. that way everybody gets the same perhaps there could be an amicable solution to all this. well this may be another so question is where are the united states in the whole picture of course this should have been since the beginning a trilateral talks would have been the best way of doing things instead of going this way you know unilaterally and upsetting russia we are we would like to know exactly where united states are staying a bit behind this probably high in the mission actually so yes let's make things
a bit clearer with a bit more hardesty and respects towards one another and each other's interests and strategic interests as well or i thank you we do have to leave it there thank you very much for giving us your thoughts. did the down be eight marine le pen the head of the front national thank you for. a three point six magnitude earthquake has struck an area in north texas it's the strongest tremor there in five years no damage or injuries have been reported but locals have been left emotionally shaken and not everyone is blaming mother nature some scientists say that the drilling in nearby fracking well it is actually setting off the quakes the areas been hit by more than a dozen tremors this month alone has seen more earthquakes since fracking began in
two thousand and eight. during the previous four decades combined one texas resident in the affected area actually joins us now his name is keith kramer i hope we can speak to him yes creek you can hear me whoa now you felt the effects of these earthquakes firsthand can you tell us your experience well. we had like three hundred quite a one with a two point five then a two point zero and then the three point six and it sounds like us aren't berman in the house shaken and we did have some damage just minor just a little crack in the rock and so when i was my wife was having panic attacks about it. and so i mean what about other people in the queue minniti presumably there's a lot of fanfare at the moment is that. well i've talked to one lady when i was at
the lager and other day and she says she has a pair of being house and sort of a flat house in a slab foundation like we have. started shaking our and she thought their houses and cave in they were really concerned about it. i can understand the truth when you go through certainly the physical ones but other any other side effects that you've been experiencing because you did live pretty close to where the tuning is taking place. no no no no the father is beside the little cracks in our. in our sheet rock what's the community doing to try and stop this g. feel as though there is anything you can do well i've heard the look in the interest there isn't study. talk to jim douglas on channel a and he said they're going to contact the commission and see if we get financing to get a study done on costs about
a quarter million dollars to do it. and ultimately think this is something that can be achieved e.g. feelings are you finding something in the corporations that are just too big to be tackled i don't think it is because we have the same problem in arkansas there was . they were having like they had like a thousand quakes and sean was one of the four point seven. download the injection work area there are so in your mind this is all down to fracking for you. the main runway for your injector all that water and chemical into the ground and then then they. separate the good from the water and they help with the water needed. feet. and. pray that you have
a little creation from the water sure ok all right keith thank you very much for coming on to r.t. today to explain what you've experienced that was there keith kramer who lives in texas and his experience first hand the tremors that were felt in texas is the new many believe it is the fracking that is taking place nearby let's take a closer look at the controversial process of fracking a well is drilled to over one thousand meters underground a mix of water sand as well as tons of talk seems called the fracking fluids are pumped into the well creating fishes that release the natural gas deposits but the harmful chemicals used for fracking accumulate in the soil and can result in the contamination of water and the toxins can also evaporating cause air pollution so there is a growing movement to ban the process of the energy industry latest attempt to tap into lucrative fossil fuel deposits well let's now bring in andy fracking activist
fiona brooks. thank you very much for coming on to r.t. today now the fracking done by these companies is legal so is there really any way for activists like yourself to bring it to an end. oh yes very much so sickly with the earthquakes last year well actually in two thousand and eleven rather in blackpool there was this. were attributed to fracking and there was a push for more koreans and it was stopped for a year while research was done to see where that was all and there's been a huge amount done community in. opposing from in the area for example in boca i'm in the southeast of the u.k. and also now in manchester and they're called soul search and there's an issue about resistance and actually stopping the drills and then getting it. on the paper that do suffer from what you've said don't they receive any compensation from the companies that carry out fracking. not always i know for example in the states what
usually happens is they buy the land beforehand and give them a gagging right so that they can speak out what damage that happened afterwards quite often when any company is in that square and the process. but actually this is not something that we should even be looking at at all we should be not investing in fracking or any contact on issues like that because as with extreme forms of extraction like tar sands like fracking the risks and the problems that happen are amplified far more than any other kind of the national for. corruption and i mean at the end of the day people might argue well look you know the economy is also very important these are very hard times in the western world at the moment surely this is an alternative it should be looked at. oh i don't i don't do that argument. finance institutions that wouldn't necessarily agree with the ideology of
for example my organization they even say that it doesn't make any significant difference to energy bills or anything about me even. a company within its operating within the u.k. there are even there are statistics say that there would be likely significant difference to energy doesn't prices for example with. the jobs that are created through this industry are very specialized or small and you actually get a company's own employee if they don't employ people from the local community or right for you and i thank you very much we have run out of time there but we appreciate your thoughts that was an environmentalist and fiona brooks thank you. coming up in the program stomp and shoot. that's the sign of a gun made using a three d.
printer but there are fears it could bring a back to deadly revolution in homemade firearms. when the crisis leaves us traces everywhere. empty close rooms become the norm. children pay for the mistakes of adults. by working in a tobacco field or in a cafe or. they are the ones who come back home blasts. so kids games are just in their memories.
the media leave us so we leave the media. by the scenes potions to cure the other part of the physical. issues that no one is asking with the guests that you deserve answers from it's all politics only of our team. please please take another look very hard to take out a little political. club that had sex with her but there are no such low. cut. oh oh.
oh oh oh oh please please. please. please a bit of a. little . out again mad trends are not toys that is the message from the russian president at a gathering devoted to the country's at defense industry in sochi it has been a busy few days from vladimir putin in the city that will host the winter olympics in just over two months to bang what site is that for ati. well at the presidential residence the president has had a very busy day sorry for now he went on to talk a little bit about to the defense and aviation industry particularly about the
drone technology let's listen to what he had to say. the drones are finding an increasingly wide use all over the world but we are not going to operate them as other countries do it's not a video game however it's absolutely clear that on manned systems have a big future let's not forget it's not all about the military it's also about sochi which is the host city for the upcoming olympics for twenty fourteen it's also the city that's going to host the paralympics not on the one hundredth a day khandaan for the olympics president putin was here to look for yourselves the infrastructure has gone. up saying essentially. are ready to welcome the world as well as the terms of the infrastructure as well as the stadiums they've all been tested in the last couple of months of international competitions they've added two thousand more buses as well as vehicles for guests and athletes at the transport system is running a smoothly as they'd wanted to add more roads in terms of hotels and and all the
restaurants that have been preparing for the last couple of months everything seems to be on a point particularly. able to also be joining us twenty fourteen they've also been added the amendments that they need to have a comfortable game so we just need to put on the final nail on it and of course we're all waiting for that snow to start dropping and it's all the way to sochi twenty fourteen for the olympics as well as the paralympics. by cultivating life on other planets might sound like science fiction but a breakthrough could be on its way as you can find out at r.t. dot com scientists are just a couple of years away from sowing the first plant seeds on the surface of the moon head online for the details of that story also there a welshman buries a fortune in a landfill site on our web site find out how over seven thousand bitcoins ended up deep under a sea of garbage. revolutionary three d.
printing technology has sparked a gun scare in america right after a workable firearm was successfully created philadelphia has become the first u.s. city to ban the unlicensed printing of guns report looks at how anyone could soon manufacture weapons at home. red's shooting range in austin texas is normally packed with gun enthusiasm. today the difference is that these men are firing rounds with a do it yourself firearm the world's first three d. printed metal gun we wanted to showcase the abilities of what direct metal can do and what a better way than find something that can withstand a bunch of heat tolerance accuracy all wrapped into one which in america everybody knows how to par. eric much later is a project coordinator at solid concepts company specializing in three d.
printing here in prints or in the arts he was granted an exclusive tour of their austin facility which boasts ten three d. industrial printers and a glimpse of our technological future these are all the three d. printed parts that went into making this car after getting a federal firearms license the company used a process called direct metal laser simpering to produce this browning nine hundred eleven pistol takes about twenty five to thirty five hours depending on the machine we put it on and what materials were grown in. this three d. printing metal gun has fired over one thousand rounds in the meantime solid concepts has manufactured its second ninety nine eleven firearm we plan on making a few more prototypes for additional testing. and we don't we don't plan on going into full production on these we can afford to sell them. at the price of be
required to get our money back while the prices of many three d. printers have fallen below one thousand dollars solid concepts insists the stainless steel firearm they've introduced to the world can't be replicated by hobbyists these machines start at six hundred thousand and go up to a million dollars they need to be in. industrial environments they require more electricity than is available in residential areas and they require inert gases in the chamber that are just not commonly available so it's definitely an industrial commercial type process and it will be years before metal printers become available on the consumer market if at all not exactly the world's first mini metal maker has already been created it prints using precious metal clay and with laser centering pat is set to expire in february it's predicted that metal desktop printers will hit the consumer market before you know it five years you know small this is going to do it maybe five years after that you starts
a whole workshops and and you know having one on your desktop at home so we are going there there's a technology exists the price will come down. as the world has learned the convenience of technology has a downside we all love to the internet cell phones e-mail and social media before finding out that our beloved data is being monitored and stored by the n.s.a. . the astonishing capabilities of three d. metal printers is no longer a secret. so when they become a part of our households have alongside the microwave and flat screen t.v. . what people choose to physically create in the privacy of their home. will be beyond the control of the u.s. government bring up or naive r.t. texas well plastic guns are already cheaper to produce the first one was printed in maggie but so far they have proven to be too unreliable to use but is marina said
in her report that metal printers are becoming more affordable making it possible to stand working replicas of proper firearms one expert in this field told us that the biggest danger is that three d. printed guns can easily be disguised. it's a very universal kind of technology that can be used in lots of different ways some some good some not so good but it is alarming that people have started printing guns i would say the most dangerous thing is let's say a gun that doesn't look like a gun but looks like the flower vase or something else and so there is this ability to make things in any shape or form really defies a lot of the conventional thinking around regulating guns around detecting them and so forth and i think that's sort of it's a whole new world when it comes to controlling these kinds of things. coming up next here in r.t. something you might not expect to see in the cradle of western civilisation we
investigate child labor in europe that's next. i hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics have lost all meaning in the past when there was the cold war it was like a battle between two ideologies taking place in the abstract at the one nine hundred thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self-proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and it's quite the olympics having the majority of the countries on earth participating they're now horribly horribly bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off their ex used to build up some infrastructure by i think this is a big misconception let's look back to the two thousand lympics and beijing yet china is really develop in the last twenty years but they do live picture really
teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about their ancient culture or the way they think or the way they live no nothing at all all we saw were some flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i. the sand i think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battle ground again and then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries a generic stadiums but that's just my opinion. i have to get up at seven in the morning school i go to school go out.
do my homework and. my work and finish it eight o'clock and then i do the same thing the next day. as time goes by and we see the crisis getting worse and all of those who have a job have to hang on to it. because it's not easy to find another job on and off. i don't think it's mobile that people my age of the responsibility of things like this. if i'm going to. like school. i'm not going to do well at school because i'm a be tight.
