pointed out that they were not there because of their own initiatives that were merely following orders the government fighters agreed on one condition that these ukrainian soldiers lay down their heavy weapons now on fire day russian president putin did say that the military chiefs in kids had turned down this offer and had instead ordered the troops to fight their way out and president putin called this a tragic mistake later however the ukrainian president petro poroshenko and the anti-government fighters reached agreement and from the reports we are now receiving the soldiers are making their way out this comes as downtown donetsk continues to be shelled there was a railway station that was hit it was a building a car and a bus that were completely burnt there have fortunately however be no reports of civilian deaths at the same time the anti government fighters continue to make advances they are being propped up by foreign volunteers and we met with one such

group. or words everybody is war every european the war. and more and more overseas fighters are signing up for joining the anti queue of troops in eastern ukraine the war is slowly advancing into jeannette's city center this used to be a hardware store but like a growing number of soft targets around the city it has been reduced to rubble a growing number of europeans are saying enough is enough and are backing their words up with action twenty five year old niccolo was a professional soldier with the elite french mountain troops for five years now he's pushing his skills to good use in ukraine alongside a contingent of other foreign volunteers he's training and government forces in urban guerrilla warfare. upon military. these are people. militias these are not mercenaries or professional soldiers so they need instruction they really have the motivation whereas the kiev army which is
11:04 am
a kind of puppet of nato they don't have any motivation whatsoever and they do not really know why they are fighting and against whom they are fighting so that is our main strength. the aid is also symbolic. for many of these people from the west it's the first time to come defend what is considered by western governments bad cards or the bad guys cards so it's very important to show the people from the west are distinct from their governments and they are ready to come and fight and risk their lives to defend another world it's not just finance volunteers from serbia spain germany poland israel and the united kingdom are internet scum the front line . we believe that ukrainian army will not be able to sustain a word or even fall because it's huge the day goes by they lose money davis motivation to lose manpower they. lose so each day that goes by they grow weaker we grow stronger europe now finds itself in between a rock and
11:05 am
a hard place what to do is move its young men sign up to fight against its ally. and on this isn't put at all legally we don't see what the french government can do to us because first of all we're not paid so we're not mercenaries we're not terrorists we're not jihad this and of course it's a mission of information it's a political mission it's a mission of soft power a mission that's growing stronger as a brigade of western volunteers is put together under the name of the united continent they're showing just how disunited europe is on the question of ukraine policy r.t. donates eastern ukraine. russia's deputy defense minister has said kids accusations that moscow is supplying arms to anti-government forces are simply incorrect he made the comments to slovakia media earlier on that day. greenaway just you so it can save ukraine was part of the soviet union and there were many arms depots
11:06 am
across the soviet union and when russia and ukraine became separate states millions of automatic rifles mines and artillery systems were left on ukraine's territory so there were warehouses with arms on the territory where kiev is now conducting its punitive action against its own people and these warehouses came under control of anti government forces people who took up arms to defend their rights so to speak about russia supplying arms to dennet school lugansk is simply wrong just look at what ukraine's army is fighting with its fighting with russian arms soviet arms to be correct meanwhile european leaders are at a summit in brussels and joining them ukraine's president petro poroshenko has gone a step further in his like ization is against russia so was and so the foreign troops and hundreds of the foreign tanks. on the territory of ukraine has a very high risk not only for the peace and stability for ukraine but for the whole

there will be no political progress unless the opposition is able to withstand the onslaught and put pressure on assad so here is there is no military victory so we will also increase our efforts to support and to shape the moderate opposition that we're facing in iraq now with isis is a greater and deeper threat to our security than we have known before a new video has been circulating online showing a twenty one year old london now bragging of joining what he calls the golden era of jihad he's also calling on other young britons to follow his lead and to war activists brian becker gave us his thoughts on the rise of extremism in the middle east. the u.k. joined with the united states in carrying out a war against muslim countries in the middle east as it's perceived in them in the middle east and amongst muslims in the u.k. is that the u.k. government is part of a war against islam and this facilitates and plays into the hands of those who are
11:13 am
who are promoting political islamics especially extremist elements who show yes this is a war against islam and yes we can build in recruiting organize on this basis but fundamentally it is the policy of the u.k. government in hand with the united states government that has created the conditions for this development i think behind the terror threat level is the real politics of what's going on the terror threat level is not really about perceived terror it's about preparing public opinion in the u.k. and in the united states for an escalating intervention by the united states in the u.k. in the middle east and they always have to do it on the pretext of protecting the domestic population against the threat of terrorism. but the how does thread has put the spotlight on security plans for the nato summit in cardiff and newport next week and the u.k. is going to great lengths to ensure the safety of the v.i.p.'s who will be attending that says hundreds of protesters are flocking to the cities where the meetings will be held terry fia as in newport for r t joins me live now harry you

11:19 am
related to george galloway's controversial statements about israel of course he's in the avapro palestine supporter and he has said that he doesn't recognize the state of israel and doesn't debate with israelis in fact this is not the first time has been attacked in two thousand and three he was accused of racism when he walked out of the university debate because he found out that his opponent was israeli then in two thousand and eight a man that was arrested after he threw a rubber stressful at him while george galloway was complaining and then in two thousand and twelve approach tried to pelt me and eggs so him being used is an understatement. george galloway's and show is airing today for our viewers in the u.k. don't miss it if you always time and as always it's also available for everyone at r.t. dot com. hard work will lead to success at least that's what part of what's known in the u.s. as the american dream but some six out of every ten third of them they now think

the idea that time is the nation together is under threat and a summit is taking place in dallas to try and save it i just barely know portnoy looks that why so many american dream is now out of reach. in the lone star state of america hundreds of so-called free market champions gather for a summit aimed at defending the american dream the the american dream is considered the national ethos of the u.s. the idea that everyone has the opportunity to achieve success through hard work regardless of social class a good paying job financial security a better job. a better future better we and better wages and deafening medical my american dream is. to progress to make morning. here at home. i for my kids to have to

11:22 am
the good jobs that provided the american dream or made the american dream a reality for many americans have just disappeared been outsourced and what has replaced it are low pay low skill jobs with no job. security no benefits no pension so people are spending all their time working these crazy hours and the hours required to survive are getting crazier a new gallup poll finds that economically stressed americans are working an average of forty seven hours per week with a growing number clocking sixty or more an increasing lack of security or stability in the us workforce has even been acknowledged by america's leader but average wages have barely budged inequality has deepened upward mobility has stalled the cold hard fact is that even in the midst of recovery too many americans are working more than ever just to get by let alone to get ahead. in

naval officers are even pushing for fighter pilots to intercept spy planes and go a spark last week when a chinese fighter jet intercepted a u.s. made up of satan and two submarine a cropped the american plane was flying close to china's naval bases on his islands in the south american officials claim the chinese jet performed a barrel roll at one point coming within ten meters of the airplane beijing says it was keeping a safe distance and that american spy missions pose a threat to its core security interest and could be considered as a hostile act every year the u.s. files about five hundred missions around china as well as monitoring from the sea and from satellites and k.p. a china specialist says beijing could take serious actions if it feels it's being threatened. i think that this part of that require a wry rate between america and china especially over the south china sea which to china of course is a and the social and critical. channel for us
