context that has absolutely no place. no deal european leaders failed to rebuild the ruins of an agreement with kiev as the ukrainian president refuses to revive the talks. on the pitch is basically speaking for themselves on the breast spiralling in egypt one student is killed all amid police crackdowns protesters outraged to jail sentences slapped on a group of women who were doing a peaceful demonstration. and with a black friday shop i thought about to kick off in the u.s. we look at the wild buying spree of the federal reserve and where it's taking the american economy.
3:01 am
for the world's top headlines live on the international i'm in for everybody here and welcome to the program ukraine will not be reviving its plans for assigning a pact with the e.u. for the bloc failed to convince president during the eastern partnership summit currently in effect in lithuania mass demonstrations continue to take place in kiev . the protesters alternately poised against the government's decision to shelve the trade pact with europe thousands of joint rallies in the heart of ukraine with the opposition issuing calls for a nationwide strike and even pledging what they call a quote euro revolution of the e.u. ukraine deal was due to be concluded at the summit in vail in the u.s. which is where. his right now let's cross to him live and get the latest from this poll good to see you today yeah new code which he's under pressure from all sides
3:02 am
still standing firm. yes certainly coming under pressure from the population back at home and coming under pressure from european leaders here in vilnius as well i would say that the chances of a last minute u. turn from president range from remote to nonexistent and ever since kiev announced that they would not be signing that association agreement with the e.u. one of the interesting questions has been how would european leaders respond in last night we got a little insight we saw european leaders and heads of state arrive on the red carpet for an informal dinner on thursday evening and cameras were allowed in to capture those those meetings the first meetings really between european leaders and president on the code which now he was clearly coming under pressure you can hear the lithuanian president say if you signed the agreement well german chancellor angela merkel says the president got a code which we expected more we being the european union going to cope which then
3:03 am
can be just about her to defend justify his decision to mark the economic situation in ukraine is very difficult we are facing serious threats are not appears to be one of the main stumbling blocks and one of the reasons that is standing so far far on the six hundred million euros that are on offer from the e.u. and the international monetary fund as part of this deal is just adequate for ukraine so says the president at this moment he says that and that figure left his country feeling humiliated well of course the precondition of allowing jailed opposition leader yulia tymoshenko to germany for medical treatment was something that was never likely to be approved by the ukrainian government so with all those differences becoming clearer and more defined by the day it looks almost certain we're not resigning that agreement here in vilnius very interesting that as you were talking there we are watching the video all of. which there is well very interesting to see what you would think it's small talk going on between the but
3:04 am
actually they're both very very unhappy with each other or at all to vilnius. thank you. well you lady leaders are now actually saying that an agreement could indeed be possible when a new president comes to power in ukraine or even plan to hold meetings with ukraine's opposition on the sidelines of that summit in lithuania but an aide for the leader of france's national front says the e.u. in the first place should not be meddling in kiev's internal affairs along with this deal which was made that they're making interventionism inside the national politics of the 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 you're too much in there in your case. this is not good as well train is divided into you have a pro european opinion you have pro russian opinion in this country for me it's
3:05 am
history and its geography is complicated let's not make things even worse. now ukraine has cited economic difficulties as the main reason for rejecting the european deal according to some reports it will cost up to one hundred billion dollars to implement the required regulations so also believes it's not surprising ukraine's rather reluctant to go ahead with the. ukraine should be thinking twice about these offers i mean what does the european union have to offer when it is politically decided when it is rising unemployment rate 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. debating ukraine's rejected e.u. bid and just how attractive the deal was for kiev in the first place all that's up
3:06 am
for debate in today's crossed. the fact is the european union doesn't have money to hand out ukraine needs an awful lot of money and everyone knows that the european union and its member states are broke they have debt up to their eyeballs and they can't afford to pay their own bills let alone other people's both russia and the european union like integration with ukraine but unocal overture to the end of the day just said it's not a good enough deal i think the only quality of government trying to probe and see where that the european union would be able to provide some financial assistance and also whether it would be willing to nudge the i.m.f. to be more lenient and maybe have preconditions for unlocking the loans however the european union made it clear that they're not going to make any concessions. on our
3:07 am
website r.t. dot com we've gathered expert opinion on the e.u. ukrainian association deal you can find out what is ultimately. behind a big u. turn that's all lined for you right now a click away at our to dot com. though i shifting gears now to egypt where a student demonstrator has been killed his car university has become the latest battleground of antigovernment protests against a brutal police crackdown i yeah that's the scene officers clashing with use firing tear gas dispersing the crowds the protesters chanting down with military rule one nineteen year old student died in the scuffles ofter sustaining fatal injuries the protesters fear has been rocking the country over a new government law banning more than ten people who gather without permission
3:08 am
this report from cairo bill true. students but it's a harsh jail sentences given to twenty one young women often not xandra who were arrested in october for protesting and suppose that islam is president mohamed morsi he's now sticking to my by the minute tree house fourteen of those women have been given the eleven years in jail for supposedly holding weapons and assaulting police offices seven of them on mine is that just fifteen years old sixteen years old the families say they were just protesting on the cornice of onyx on terror holding billions handing out flyers now it's not just isn't this protest is sort of being cracked down on we've also got elected activists who have been arrested so the protests by the government which the specific days you could have it's any pretext in the making for the interior ministry that makes a speech because he's a gypsy blogger and i do think he's one of the people he's talking to by the nation he's picked up this this evening his voice beaten as he was being summoned by the
3:09 am
general prosecutor for inciting protest he is of course a little and that's just. to. so you know it's not just. the talk it's the question is whether the government can continue this has been massive opposition found a lot of the political factions including the comments from one of the and maybe it will lead is he said he's going to be presidential hopeful he tweeted asking the interim president to pardon these being sentenced and there's been no pressure to always about this new protest or asking for it to be looked at again so the question remains whether this military led government will be able to continue this crackdown and continue issuing these very difficult and restricting freedoms it's r.t. international and still to come on the program peacekeepers on the streets of the u.k. . people are angry because it's a very small very densely populated and people as you can see so terrace houses

people living on top of each other as migrants flow into the u.k. some locals hit the streets hoping to bridge the divide between the new arrivals and the established communities that full story just around the corner. but for now here on the program locals in northern texas have been experiencing a very shaky thanksgiving with the area being rocked by two worth quakes seismologists are trying to get to the bottom of exactly what's going on both some are skeptical about it being purely down to natural causes if i thought no one was injured although locals were understandably concerned by the tremors more than a dozen quakes of rattled north texas this month alone some scientists point the finger at nearby gas drilling wells for causing the seismic activity in the area seen more earthquakes since fracking began there in two thousand and eight than four decades combined and one local resident told us what he saw. we
3:11 am
had like three hundred one of the two point five minutes for a and in that three points. and so on marker aren't berman in the house again and we did have a damage minor just a little crack in the rock my wife and. i cut one lady and she's here to appear i'm being how. i have. been like we have. shaken. baby and they were really concerned about it. let's have a look here on how the controversial process of fracking may have caused the recent earthquake activity in north texas a well is drilled to more than a thousand meters underground a mix of water sand and so-called fracking fluids which do contain dangerous toxins are then pumped into the well they create fissures that allow oil and gas to reach the surface but they can also cause potential tremors it's also possible the
3:12 am
harmful chemicals accumulate in the soil and can contaminate groundwater causing pollution upon evaporation well the number of those actually waiting for this process alternately this process to be abandoned is certainly on the rise that's at all odds with the energy giants looking to make a fast buck texas activist sharon wilson she used to live near a fracking site until she realized she had no choice but to leave her home. at one time i turned my tap on and nothing came out which was very frightening so the air was degraded horribly lots of air attacks trott's lie no i it was just it completely changed the character it's worth concern for me was to end up without water or that my son could end up feeling sick from the chemicals that he was panic says to i lost eighty thousand dollars in property value as they expand this practice more and more people are harmed and more and more people join the
3:13 am

3:15 am
it's good to have you with us the holiday shopping season is kicks off in the u.s. and many retailers have even broken tradition by pushing their opening hours into thanksgiving night instead of waiting for the official start of black friday now exactly five years ago the federal reserve announced its own unprecedented shopping spree but it's been helping america's economy. one of those behind the experiment in alice says it was a big mistake. black friday the day after thanksgiving is america's busiest shopping day of the year millions standing in lines for hours or even days before stampeding into stores to snag door buster deals oddly enough the federal reserve bank has also used this pseudo holiday to help you it's only one president to
3:16 am
spending spree otherwise known as i want to tell you that using two thousand the financial crisis the fed began buying up massive bonds to drive down the cost of credit and experiment pitched at helping main street as the program marks its five year anniversary the former fed official who helped spearhead the quantitative easing is publicly apologizing to all americans for the role he played his name is andrew who saw our and he joins me now andrew what is so bad about quantitative easing that you felt you had to publicly apologize to the entire country i believe we had a very big wake up call with the financial crisis five years ago we had we realized we had this economy that was over we were lying on wall street where the banks and become too big and too too concentrated for the larger economy and what i feel quality quantitative easing all to me has done is to reinforce. that structure of
3:17 am
the u.s. economy and a lot of the benefits of q.e. have ultimately gone to the banks rather to to to main street america so if we see that over the course of five years those that have benefited from q e have been the richest people in the united states and the richest companies the richest banks in the majority of americans are not benefiting from this and why is still continuing the problem is. the the fed at this point is the only one doing something and so it feels like it keeps on having to do something to help mild the argument is what it's doing is it not only helping but it may actually be hurting far for much about the u.s. economy or let's talk about it here with a look back at two thousand and eight when the fed on very oldest largest stimulus package in u.s. . lending too many mortgages out and not getting their money back in as financial troubles plague the burra was well the federal reserve then comes to rescue and
3:18 am
launches a program of mussy of bond purchases printing more cash and buying the bad loans from the ailing banks by pouring more money into the banks they intended to help the average joe by driving down the cost of credit so that more americans could survive the financial meltdown however it turned out to be a big win for wall street and not for the taxpayers and with borowitz increasingly missing their credit payments it means interest rates are about to go through the roof the publisher of trends journal gerald celente he warns of dire consequences. the only reason there's any recovery going on in the united states or for that matter the european zone is that interest rates are at record lows so as i mentioned you could buy an order well below zero percent and what they've got what's going to happen when interest rates go up the housing market again collapses the auto market collapses and worse than that the bond market collapses and so
3:19 am
you're going to start seeing a decline again in people paying mortgages more foreclosures happening and that's when interest rates go up because when interest rates go up this phony recovery we have in the housing market is going to stop and a lot of the new people that got into the market are going to have trouble paying off their mortgages. and our website was lined up plenty of stories for you on the web site this hour including have a look right here the black hole in of russia's fleet in fact is a brand new submarine it's been cold out because it's virtually undetectable if submerged at all if you don't call me all the details on the pictures of very impressive submarine. that also check out this story of the u.s. war against intellectual property theft not looking so effective now as it's been revealed that washington also had its own face in the trunk full story right now

3:26 am
a transgender tragedy his name is judea is just ahead for you. i hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics have lost all meaning in the past when there was the cause. cold war it was like a battle between two ideologies taking place in the abstract at the nine hundred thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self-proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and sway 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 china is really develop in the last twenty years but the live picture really teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about the ancient culture or the
3:27 am
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 hate to say it by 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 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. seventy five is looking at what i'm doing making sure i'm doing it right and making sure that i'm hitting the right target calling the strike the president personally can call up any predator feet down in the office and say you're there.
