who guided europe's central bank through the chaotic early years of the euro crisis talks of the full and fears for the single currency bloc. a very warm welcome to you from all of us here at our team oscar robertson shine 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 and the plane's engines reportedly froze as the crew decided not to spray the craft with antifreeze. now joins us live the program with the latest details on this develop. story i mean
7:02 am
a slightly clearer picture of what might have happened is now beginning to emerge but can you take us through it as we currently understand it. well first things first apparently there has been another incident with a plane which is operated by the same air company huge hair at the same airport this time it was a boeing we don't know exactly the make up is going by that apparently they've also had some problem with the engines so not a happy day for the people from this particular company now regarding the plane which went down earlier this morning it does appear that the last signal over with the air traffic controllers just three minutes after takeoff according to witnesses the plane has actually as it was going down was missing black smoke from its engines the witnesses say that the plane has crashed and then burst into flames up on impact breaking into several pieces also some of the witnesses are saying that for a moment there it looked as if the pilots were trying to steer the plane away from
7:03 am
the village which was nearby the aircraft crashed just to run a half kilometers away from the airport and that allowed for the rescue teams to get there relatively soon and fortunately of course they still couldn't save the thirty one people on board this is the latest what we have from the representatives of the emergency is ministry on the ground right now. with. the rescuers took them out of the debris area on stretchers two helicopters helped here with the majority of the injured from the site it was the passengers in the nose of the plane managed to survive the crash one woman is still unconscious and another survivor we die but the rest are conscious most people have suffered brain injuries and right. now we know there's a speculation that the crew decided not to spray the plane with antifreeze before the flight but are there any other possible theories as to what could have caused the crash. well if according to a get according to reports the crew did. not really did not say that there was
7:04 am
anything wrong there were any technical difficulties prior to the flight there's also information that the crew did not undergo a mandatory medical check up before the the plane crash of course we also at this point we are being told that there were several versions of what could have happened there was somebody suggesting that possibly there would be responsibility may also lie with the on the ground controlling controllers but at this point it looks like a possible to human error and this problem with the engine the technical malfunction are to blame and now regarding the mc freeze we're talking about this particular aircraft which is eight seats are seventy two it's made in france you would air is the only russian company which operate says in russia or uses this particular aircraft in russia now this airplane is not designed to be flown in extremely cold temperatures in fact according to the information that we have this aircraft cannot
7:05 am
fly without the anti ice agent in temperatures below minus one degrees and that is this cold as it is here right now in moscow on the ground so we also know that the only person who can make the decision not to use the. agents before the flight is the. crew captain in this instance the pilot of the plane who is a by this bitter irony was supposed to turn twenty eight years old tomorrow unfortunately he's also among those who have been killed in fact all of the crew members have been identified right now the how their bodies have been found at the identification process of the rest of the passengers is going on at the moment we also know that the ministries of emergencies is sending a three planes to chew and then bearing special medical equipment also medical teams as well as teams of psychologists who asked to understand that those who have been. we have been through this ordeal those who have survived and of course the
7:06 am
families of those who have died they will need a lot of help to recover from this psychologically now as far as compensation goes financial compensations in this instance we're talking about somewhere around two hundred twenty thousand dollars in the ruble equivalent of course which the families of the deceased will receive and that is become by the compensation from the aircraft from the the air company u.s. air and from the government of course the investigation has been launched and we're looking forward to any further developments so we can bring you the latest on this tragic incident we're also hearing out of the russian president dmitri medvedev opened his morning session today with a minute of silence such remember the victims of this plane crash are things they were unable to show thank you. all right circuits more details on this talk more about what could have happened what caused the crash what are joined live by aviation analyst chris yeah it's based in manchester i thank you for coming out
7:07 am
artsy today there are reports as you probably heard our saying earlier that a pilot decided not to spray the aircraft with antifreeze and that's could have possibly led to the tragedy what do you make of that it may well be one of the precursors to the tragic accidents today you know whenever you're flying any type of aircraft in hostile conditions when you could on cue the very bad weather is very hostile condition and it's incumbent. we kept some of the the aircraft take precaution before taking off and would necessarily include the freezing the frosting. ice with the winds and great detrimental impact of severe impact on the safety of flight as indeed i would mention on the controls the crotons well so if it proves out that this aircraft wasn't the only student who
7:08 am
taking off. that is one of the potentially one of the primary causes of this tragic crunch it almost seems potentially contradictory because we're also hearing witnesses say that the plane actually caught fire before it hit the ground what does that suggest you wouldn't seem to some perhaps that the engines are frozen over you know really we always try to pick the details with the immediate minutes and. i do think we can draw any conclusion. it's only has. to be a straining what's being put on b b engines to be run itself that's a good time to come out from this airport and may well. come to the fire on board. the air. welcome burst the gates of the broken record to this this this this i craft to determine the actual who rules. the actual sequence of the grants now as
7:09 am
we as we understand it i apologize for interrupting your i'm sorry about that but we understand that because the captain of the plane was twenty seven years old he graduated in two thousand and eight experienced only experience only lasted four years and that does not seem like a properly trained pilot see at such a young age solely. through the necessary training required to to operate. across type age doesn't really enter into the equation here if he's been properly trained if you have the number of flights those that are required to take up a captain sully. cross such as this. quite literally as i pointed out it's no bearing on this natural has no bearing on it can we then that end up perhaps talk more about the history of the safety of the a.t.r. seventy two aircraft what do you know about it a.t.l. seventy two has been around for for quite some considerable time now the first
7:10 am
operators of this their quote finesse. you knew they operated in similarly hostile conditions. sometimes to be. operated in russia i don't think you can draw a conclusion from some suggest humans that have been this morning type should not of flying in the sort of conditions that existed where it's took off from. a good sound aircraft well engineered. to being operated in political conditions as well as milwaukee it was obvious they would have said that this was a fairly difficult operating conditions and in siberia if i may i do apologise i'm running low on time but this is the third major air crash in russia in under a. year i just what is the problem here t.j. you think possibly the lessons are not being learned well there is the possibility of course and it's always
7:11 am
a possibility. to experience such as rush would be regulated means to ensure the safety measures are being met by the operating theater but also you know there is a serious question as to whether. to register with the russian federation being. checked for release those that are registered with. the russian federation. or rights and aviation analyst chris yost joining us live on r.t. thank you very much. this is r.t. special envoy to syria kofi annan is due to brief the un security council on how damascus has complied with the latest peace plan of excepted last week the friends of syria group believes that president assad has failed to implement the plan but other groups are meeting in istanbul is seen as some of the gulf nations allegedly
7:12 am
deciding to pay salaries to the rebels fighting the syrian regime with details on this as r.t. sarah for. talks of ending the violence on the inside of friends in syria come. outside day and take issue a place where getting heavy handed they dispersed a tiny pro syrian government gathering. behind a crowd. pushing them back up the thread with their actions going he seemed to serve to the rank rowdy crowd. was armed says quote. we won't just. aren't good and so you are just to. move but you can't force. the inflight only get. out of the sides of the international community to find a solution to the conflict in syria the conference continued throughout the
7:13 am
afternoon and they say talk is cheap friends to syria have pledged millions of dollars with the free syrian army effectively putting the rebels on the foreign payroll however even this didn't go as far as the opposition great the syrian national council and some of the friends of syria had hateful with calls to a penny on the free syrian army becoming stronger case country turkey is now going to twenty thousand displaced syrians refugee camps near the border see a continual flow of new your rivals and these we nestle will have tales of war videos in the faintest if. we are to skip over the border violence go through. negotiations they tell us while we're the opposition will not back down from this fight nor they feel will president assad despite the syrian government along with the international community having signed up to the un envoy to syria cape fear and peace plan at a friends
7:14 am
a syria conference the parties have already decided who is just not representative of the syrians. friends of syria syrian people support the mission called an int declared by seat in the consul we see cede an issue comes to a legitimate representative of all syrians this seemingly one sided approach is a part of the reason why russia and china has a history a law we think concerns that excluding the assad government undermines diplomatic efforts to end the violence if you want to help syria the to engage the syrian government in diplomatic talks on neutral ground it's quite quite clear that president assad is not going to. you know accept the kofi annan peace plan because the western countries are still giving aid to the opposition and the meeting there in the message to president assad was clear when it comes to the internal taishan of the peace plan time is running out its surface. is that.
7:15 am
we are coming to you live from moscow still to come in the program here a bus stop in brussels to find out how a bus a first demo quickly turned into a violent showdown with police just outside nato's headquarters. also with most italians choked by austerity the country's affluent region of south to roll sees a rise in separatist sentiment. from the pirate party of russia to the group headed by billionaire tycoon mikhail prokhorov but there's no shortage of fresh political blood hoping to find a place in russia's parliament this week with the president expected to sign a new laws making it easier for them to register the competition could get a whole lot tougher and he said now reports on what's become a real party russia. politics in russia may never be the same protests have become
7:16 am
a common sight and new parties are registering left and right as political reform. starts them fall former deputy prime minister in the ninety's is no stranger to the white house here. you are right here on our i'm told was long off the political radar until a sudden mass protest movement picked up after vast fraud claims against the december parliamentary vote now might be his chance to get back in the game crush only buy your ticket yes that's it but my proposal is for any party with five hundred members that represents no less than fifty percent of russia's regions should be registered the curriculum of steadily the number so once pushing for easy party registration is already seen falls as it was a recently now there will be hundreds of part just registered hundreds of democratic socialist nationalist balance sheets will be kilometers long. alexander
7:17 am
below has been trying to officially get into politics for years but there are. known for his staunch nationalism russian marches and tough rhetoric but love it now have a good chance of getting into parliament and already has a plan. for there will be many nationalist parties registered sore first goal will be to get together on one ballot as one party to bring up a readings in use already popular aspects of a movement to win seats nationalists will have tough competition not least from a new face who has already proved himself billionaire broker of 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
7:18 am
a new political force a strong party. it seems everyone wants to doing the party and start want. and want to greece because all skiing in london and me cry oh good show 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 subtopic russia or a party of friends of elliott's but if before there were complaints of too few parties it 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. and if you remember you can always log on to our web site for even more comments and analysis some of the stories are waiting for there right now including when we visited one of the darkest reminders of the soviet past museum a based on the gulag of forced labor camps and then heard the terrifying flashbacks
7:19 am
from his former prisoners. plus amazing pictures here a miraculous escape was almost seven hundred fishermen were saved from an ice floe that broke off russia's far east coast taking hundreds of people in the freezing waters. as a twenty minutes past the hour here in moscow now belgian police have arrested almost five hundred peace activists outside nato headquarters in brussels protesters attempting to storm the building but were met with a heavy handed response from hundreds of officers demonstrators say the march was against the nato's hawkish intervention policies hands around a spokesman for nato game over who took part in the protest says they were trying to stop a global war machine the fact that through europe peace activists doesn't mean you have to state specifically a site we didn't use frightens good to actively trying to get him to stop the preparation of who our policies are need so we see the need to headquarters for
7:20 am
what happens there is a preparation for our crimes cordons them stop it don't need to it's. citizens or for sure they want to stop the prosecutors we also have a discussion on the legality of. the nuclear weapons policies and the military interventions before court of course we were not friends or for france of our fear or favor but it's the british are sort of symptoms of the online problem and not just removing that one and putting all the parties in place you don't solve a conflict. never made its case he with the markets but for now more than a trillion dollars spots the size of the euro zone's newly expanded bailout fund its hopes will act as a buffer to future crises and market fluctuations that could get a rise from europe's painful austerity drive but will cuts alone cure the block's
7:21 am
troubles that was just one of the questions r.t. put to john patricia the man who led the european central bank through the early turbulent years of the euro crisis. with the school austerity very often is only that instead of spending much more than you were on you spend more although you were a bit these things spending a year there which you were so how could you call that austerity if you back. then you would prove something and by improving your give a chance and growth and job creation i think it is it is the reality so either way if you you with your problems. be center of a larger problem which is you know characterizing all the advanced economy in my you wouldn't do studying of the century. that interview was are coming your way in full next hour. in these painful times of
7:22 am
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 italian biking hard you could really report on how the world is leading to a rise in support for a breakaway from. lost in translation between b.l.t.'s and the mediterranean a population of half a million people and a lot of to become independent one day that south to roll a probe in sanaa the eternal oldies has never been italian says claude's is showing off her native town of boys she spent thirty years of your life fighting for independence see. the only see where to rule their languages german were taken from the rest of to rule by force the last a hundred years ago we have seen pressures which has affected our language closed
7:23 am
our schools no signings and now changes regional name into. the not really ever closer refers to how these german speaking territory was occupied by eataly of the end of the first world war and was an exciting one thousand nine hundred ninety after world war two the allies decided that the province would remain a part of easily but would be granted a certain level of self-government goes on already enjoys the status of one autonomy for example ninety percent of the tax revenue from these coffee will stay in the region while the other turn around go to rome but like you cannot make prices taking grieve over the country every single sound so i'm still awake nationalist feelings and this is the situation the politicians are all too ready to take advantage of we asked me chairman of the popular libertarians party how she would answer an italian from
7:24 am
a poor region of the country who wanted to know why so. to roll doesn't want to help rescue them for so long i don't pay him a cup of coffee and we'll then have a long discussion softer all is not in charge of saving italy and couldn't have done so even if it wanted to each only is a bad housekeeper or lots of debts we're not paying for their debts that our money theirs and ours are the two words which we hear very often and sell to roll and money is at the core of the dispute the time is expected to contribute one hundred twenty million euros to cleaning up the tell in national budgets to do so it will have to raise rules state the eighty and income taxes as well as fees paid by farmers instead insult to all economics minister it wants to buy its freedom from eataly once and for all even names of concrete purchase price teen billion euros those that. we can still be part of easily but we want full financial freedom we're
7:25 am
ready to pay a solidarity tax of three percent we'll pay our foreign policy fiscal and euro policy otherwise we'll do the rest on our own we build our roads and several months before it happens we wait for permission from rome for years. gross an infrastructure in this reach province of italy are indeed very non italian so too is unemployment which stands at only two percent compared to almost ten nationwide in a particular local government has to keep pushing with the idea of independence that's for sure because we can go on like this there's no way we can progress this way to the. extent that children are t.v. goes on to eternity. and over the k.t. of the arts business to see you again or last hour you were telling us about of the gains of the russian markets have been making they still holding a tighter grasp they are actually were they're doing rather well today and they're actually going for the second day i we've had latest figures from hey just b.c.
7:26 am
. showing that manufacturing continue to grow more distillate. benefiting the region have got the r.t.s. point seven percent of the mice is around a third of the stands in positive territory for a look at the stocks does the u.s. really benefit say is going to change the fortunes of us in the last two hours as they do it into negative territory that's despite never a profit rising by fifty seven percent last year thanks for an increase in sales and stronger prices as you can see is still down after that care crash we've been covering here in r.t. i guess probably still managing to hold on to those gains around half a percent that gas production is rising one point four percent in the first quarter of this year be able to continue that production as far as investors are concerned they're encouraged by about let's move on and continue talking about gas for a moment i'll say that russia has whole of the day the amount of gas transit through ukraine most cases capel reducing the usage of the route in favor of other
7:27 am
things like the bellary sea and pipeline and newly built subsidy routes north stream meanwhile analysts say the quick shift is like clay and connect the current drop with the seasonal demand falls. and back to the markets we'll have a look at oil and this kind of a mix of sentiments coming out of a moment because we've got good sentiments coming from the u.s. economy and the chinese economy but the news coming from europe seems to be overriding all of counting signs of growth from the u.s. and china and they're of course the world's largest consumer of crude so as you can see the light sweet that is a down as is the i came moving on for you we're going to have a look at the european markets as you can see is a completely different viewpoint to the russian figures we looked out for the. most posting red arrows is that like that is that digging into negative territory now we
7:28 am
just have in the last. thirty minutes or so the unemployment rate coming out from the year i say now of course all seventeen countries increased the tempo point eight percent in february compared to ten percent in february last year so it's a slight is a slight dip for them but it is no good at all really if we look at spain there is now twenty three point six percent which is quite concerning actually i was staying with european news for now a little ways the sovereign wealth funds because his exposure to european markets forty one percent of the six hundred billion dollars fund will be invested in europe now that is thirteen percent less than it was earlier instead the spare cash will be invested into the world's fastest growth regions which are asia and africa . ok but have a look at the exchange rates now and see how the ruble is getting on as you can see the years of it is completely flat right now we've got the ruble is fine but i
7:29 am
don't see us go back and the year i can tell you in comparison with the other emerging markets carless including the indian rupee brazil's reality is performing much better i guess the euro surprise is at the moment that is done and dusted for may as well for say my colleague to make treatment thank you will be out next week so i am home front thank you very much frightened and still to come here the headlines in the letters edition of cross talk stay with us.
