10:13 pm
so we're going to think of a proper response to it who will find a way to tackle it we'll have the best investigators working on this case ukraine is not known to have any terrorist organizations operating on its soil and all explosions in the past were treated as acts of hooliganism by authorities and the timing of this attack just could not be wars. 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 abroad the attacks on people are still being investigated but the already have very serious implications we are only forty days away from the start of the euro twentieth well 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. let's see reporting from kiev in ukraine stay with us here on r t still to come why cairo's iconic central

10:15 pm
no another step towards proving his innocence in a test administered by british experts andrey lugovoy passes the lie detector polygraph science says he didn't kill alexander litvinenko in london in two thousand and six when i give a result. in my mind the right result if i'm not i don't get a result it's inconclusive i would buy my guns one hundred percent and if it was admissible in court i would be very pleased to go about producing call a skeptic might say that as a former security services agent look up voigt might have had training to cheat the test but alexander corrupt core a documentary maker whose idea it was for leucovorin to undergo it thinks that's unlikely even every american police station has a polygraph test and if it was so easy to fall why security services would use it

10:17 pm
british experts the people who came to test me are members of the british polygraph association and we will invite these experts as witnesses in any court proceedings i don't expect any serious change but for me it was the moment of truth i think this is just the latest step that andre has taken to attempt to clear his name with the person so authorities last november harris simpang chris curran escorts because wife marino won the rights to a new wiser ranging inquest into her husband's death said he well couldn't the news and it's to give evidence by video link. realizes this won't close the case but for him it's more evidence to suggest he's as innocent as he's always claimed. the british ministry of defense is considering placing surface to air missiles on a residential buildings people in east london have gotten a leaflet saying their rooftops could be used to deploy the weapons during the
