a terrorist attack. the system it's another challenge for us for zero country so we're going to think of a proper response to it which will find a way to tackle it we'll have the best investigators working this case ukraine is not known to have any terrorist organizations operating on its soil and all of those in the past would treat it as an act of hooliganism by authorities and the timing of this attack just could not be warse not only the country is going through difficult political times with some already using the bloss to gain points but is also about to welcome many guests from a bro. the attacks are still being investigated but they already have very serious implications we are only forty days away from the start of the euro twenty twelve football championship in ukraine and poland and the authorities are now under severe pressure to reconcile the hundreds of thousands of football fans who will be coming here. reporting from kiev in ukraine you're watching the weekly here

9:16 am

9:22 am
things one side was saying yes this is an act of solidarity and suddenly we're now hearing it's all a commercial dispute that one thing's for certain right around the arab world will be cheering this on and washington is it behind the scenes tries to keep the gas deal open it just shows how completely disabled the u.s. state department is the obama administration is after one foreign one failure after another in terms of the so-called arab spring this is very important. you're watching the weekly on r.t. the arctic and its vast energy reserves are a key focus for china as it's been looking to gain a city check foothold in the region the country's prime minister has toured europe stopping in iceland and then sweden wish chairs the arctic council beijing the world's largest energy consumer is seeking to become a permanent observer in something that stockholm supports investment expert francis learn says well not all arctic nations are keen to have beijing on board it's

the free software foundation believes the law would give the author of he's way too much power. if you store any data in a u.s. company that company with few exceptions is legally required to hand that data over to the u.s. government without even a search warrant so i think both individuals and governments should take precautions to make sure that their citizens data is not being handed over to u.s. companies or their foreign subsidiaries which are subject to that same hypocritically named quote unquote act governments are far more powerful than people acting on their own underground clandestinely or as criminals or whatever and so we must protect ourselves from abuse of government power first of all and secondarily of course there are other people who might do us harm and the
