6:01 am
you are the man who guided to europe's central bank through the chaotic early years of a single currency crisis but tells us here at r.t. what he sees as the future of the european project. it's good to have you with us today here on our team i'm a recent show you live in moscow doctors are currently fighting to save the lives of twelve people rescued after a passenger plane with forty three on board crashed in russia's western siberia it happened just minutes after takeoff it's believed the pilots were attempting an emergency landing in the plane's engines reportedly roads as the crew decided not just spray the aircraft with antifreeze but for all. ridiculous for study. can you
6:02 am
bring us up to date for this hour what is the latest that we know so far. well we do know that the plane has crashed just three minutes after it took off from the airport the radio signal was lost and soon there witnesses reported that the plane started emitting black smoke from its engines crashed to the ground and burst into flames breaking into pieces now the plane fell down just one and a half kilometers away from the airport. of the crash site it to all of the emergency services needed able needed me to possible for the rescue mission to start as soon as possible and that is why twelve people actually were rescued from the wreckage site of course at this point investigation continues the witnesses are also saying reportedly for binet there is if the pilots were trying to avoid crashing into the village which was nearby of course that is yet to be determined
6:03 am
the flight data recorders are being investigated and looked out at this very moment here's the latest what we have a from the representatives of the emergencies ministry's on the ground. the rescuers took them out of the debris area on stretchers two helicopters helped here with the majority of the interest from. the passengers and the nose of the plane and managed to survive the crash one conscious and another survivor we addressed our conscience will speak will have suffered brain injury. reno we're getting a latest reports here thirty seven of the injured have undergone surgery currently there injuries are not life threatening that's a latest on that can you tell us what investigators are saying about the possible cause of the crash and we know it possibly understanding something to do with the engines being frozen. absolutely now you have to understand that this particular model of the plane a.t.r. seventy two it's made in france and it's not designed to be flown in very low
6:04 am
temperatures back there are there have been reports that the engines stop operation it's just minus one degree celsius that's actually not that cold air temperature it's always colder here right now where i'm standing and it's boarded li the crew members have refused for the plane to undergo special procedure where the plane gets showered with a special empty freezer agent now the only person who can take that decision or who can make that decision is supposedly the pilot of the of the aircraft in this instance we're talking about a twenty seven year old man who was supposed to turn twenty eight in a bitter irony his birthday was supposed to be tomorrow now he is among the four of the crew members who have been confirmed dead at this point in fact these particular aircraft the a.t.r. seventy two has been banned in the united states because of the problems with the with the frost growing on its wings and of course the ensuing new difficulty when
6:05 am
it comes to flying now we also know that there are the emergency planes the majors the ministry's i'm sorry are standing three planes to two men actually one of them is on the ground there right now it's carrying special equipment special medical equipment doctors and of course teams of psychologists of course we understand that those who have been through this horrible ordeal as well as the relatives and the friends of the victims of those who died will have to i will have to go through some really hard adjustments when it comes to all things psychological we also know that so the families of those who died in this plane crash will receive a compensation a total of three point five million rubles now both from and that is combined amount from the uteri the company which operates the planes and probably the government of the of the of this re. now when it comes to you tear property which is operating this right if we are the only ones using this particular aircraft in
6:06 am
russia and this is the first time which a.t.r. seventy two has ever come down in russia so we have to wait for the course of the official investigative reports to understand what exactly has transpired on the ground who is to blame for these for the possibility of this crash and we also know that the crew has refused to undergo or rather did not go through the ninety three medical checkup which they were supposed to go through right before takeoff so there is not still a lot of very rough patches in this in this story still kind of a few details which are not yet quite clear so we are waiting for the investigators to tell us more on this. tragic event and you talk about compensation over two and three and three point five million rubles that's more than one hundred thousand dollars just hearing here on a new server the plane did undergo technical maintenance in germany two thousand and ten and showed your maintenance in two men two months ago all right. thanks for
6:07 am

got to. negotiations they tell us why weren't the opposition will not back down from this fight nor they feel will president assad despite the syrian government's along with the international community having signed up to the un envoy to syria kay finance peace plan at a friends a syria conference the parties have already decided who is the legitimate representative of the syrians. france of syria syrian people support the mission called an int declared by seat in the consul we see cede an issue council illegitimate to present a few for all syrians this seemingly one sided approach is a part of the reason why russia and china has this mystically all other we think concerns that excluding the assad government from talks undermines diplomatic efforts to end the violence if they want to help syria the to engage the syrian
6:10 am
government in diplomatic talks on neutral ground it's quite quite clear and president assad is not going to. you know accept the kofi annan peace plan as the western countries are still giving aid to the opposition at the meeting there in the message to president assad with clear when it comes to the implementation of the peace plan time is running out sir. it's the. journalist and political analyst christophe horsetail says that he's not surprised by stories that the friends of syria group is paying salaries to the syrian rebels he told us here at r.t. the financial aid and weapons have been finding of a way to the country since the beginning of the uprising. they are being paid since a long time since the beginning and since we have an eyewitness now the ex lebanon correspondent of al-jazeera mr ali hashem who went away in disgust from zero eight who said in april two thousand and ten i it was two thousand and eleven sorry april
6:11 am
two thousand and eleven i have personally witnessed hundreds of people crossing the border from lebanon into syria from dead all experts know quite clearly that must have been preplanned and prearrange from the summer of two thousand and ten and that kills the whole story the west and some of these corrupt arab allies including unfortunately turkey are making out of syria so what we can say now is the sort of see neo colonial battle of the west against syria is in in a way stalled right now to try a diplomatic really they try in diplomatic bickering you know about god dealing with communication equipment this is a ridiculous show these people these are praises in syria are armed from the start from outside you would r.t. a lot from moscow are still on the way for you in the program a lot of europe's dark spot. she would call for
6:12 am

6:14 am
beloved has been trying to officially get into politics for years but there are already. known for his staunch nationalism russian marches and tough rhetoric but love could now have a good chance of getting into parliament and already has a plan and a proper worth of there will be many nationalist parties registered sore first goal the key to get together on one ballot is one party to bring up a ratings in use already popular aspects of a movement to win seats nationalists will have tough competition not least from a new face who is already proved to south billionaire brokers a sensation in the presidential vote announcing his candidacy just months before and coming in third now promising to work hard for the middle class. more than five and a half million people voted for me just of me for that reason i will form
6:15 am
a new political force of strong cord. it seems everyone wants to join the party and start one. and want to greece berezovsky in london and me i'll go to church of have both said they have plans to launch political forces for those looking for a wider choice they may well be able to vote for a party of love subtropics russia or a party of friends of elliot's that have before there were complaints of too few parties that may now well be too many perhaps putting the days of a so-called technical russian parliament behind but a new russian political system that works still some way off and he's now a r.t. moscow. well i do remember you can always log on to our website for much more comments and analysis so here's some of the items waiting for you there right now at r.t. dot com we visited one of the darkest reminders of the soviet past a museum and based on the gulag forced labor camps we went there to hear terrifying
6:16 am
flashbacks from some of his former prisoners. plus just amazing pictures of a miraculous escape as almost seven hundred fishermen were saved from an ice floe that broke off russia's far east coast by taking hundreds of people deep into freezing waters. belgian police have arrested almost five hundred peace activists outside the nato headquarters in brussels protesters attempted to storm the building but were met with a heavy handed response from hundreds of officers demonstrators say the march was calls of protest and nato's hawkish intervention policies let's hear more of this now from one of the activists who actually took part there in the demonstration. a spokesman for nato game over joining us live from brussels on the program good to see you are you witnessed yesterday's protest first hand and what appeared to spark the violence and you tell us why did the demonstrators try and break into nato
6:17 am
headquarters. ok the fact that the europeans are to this doesn't mean you have to steve precisely aside we didn't youth violence but. appropriation of war policies by need so we see the need for headquarters what happens there is the preparation for our war crimes governments don't stop with its . citizens you're sure that they want to stop so you so you're protesting against what you're calling the heavy handedness and aggressive approach of nato but here you are a peace activist. brussels and they don't headquarters are not particularly peaceful some might say. well what reflektor trying to do is to bring the legal look people the official policies before the courts have you tried to do that ourselves bar and i prefer civil disobedience or if they prosecute us we also have a discussion on the legality of the like the nuclear weapons policies and the
6:18 am
military interventions before so that's a good distance behind the protests let's take a step back and look at the broader picture nato has been credited by some with bringing a fled fledgling form of democracy to libya for years has been working to bring the same to afghanistan isn't nato a successful pro peace organization. well i would hope to successful i mean nato is not for ten years in afghanistan and i don't see a lot of success libya now we see like the revenues of more than on that that's between wars or between militias so effectively you can question if the military interventions are really pretty or are we just arming the next phase in civil war but if it through the military the numbers are all i'm sure there's some sort interest you put that nato is an international military block we all understand that but surely nato does have some global responsibilities to promote peace in
6:19 am
conflict torn areas or you know you saying that it's not doing that at all it's just actually arming rebels. well i'm saying is that the method of bringing peace is just not working. like in the libya war in fact the political will of the air force of this sort of conflict. and what you see now is the future of the world to new troops to sort of float the political. importance of all the facts of what you do with military interventions and just making hoops more important than the simple kooks and you effect preparing the civil war which comes off the afterwards but could it but could it be in some people's eyes when you talk about the the indirect arming of rebels all worsening a conflict torn region some might just call that collateral damage. were finger collateral damage is a good thing quite
6:20 am
a lot like everyone focuses on one dictator and of course we were not friends of cut off. ever but it's the dictatorships the sort of symptoms of the underlying problem and by just removing that one and putting all the parties in place you don't solve the conflict you just prolong. the lumber a spokesman for nato game over thank you for joining us live from brussels today. in these painful times of severe cuts and austerity in italy and the autonomous region of south to roll in the cradle of the alps stands as one of the country's few islands of prosperity with the italian debt burden biting hard that you can really catch over reports on how the wealth gap is leading to a rise in support for a breakaway from rome. lost in translation between the outs and the need to rein in a population of one million people and
