to be true to. the roads to. look to. the ukrainian army to take bag rest of cities in the east just street by street to break a by brick is on the border trying to get into ukraine by bombing and fighting is making such a trip trasher us. and a ukraine threatens to stop russian gas from running through is a transit pipeline we look at why the statement comes as a warning signal when you wrote plots. q. as the u.s. unleashes a new round of aid strikes in northern iraq in an effort to stop the advance of the jihad as we report on how the same militants away empowered by washington policy.
the war in gaza may have provoked a huge debate worldwide whether israel is trying to silence the voices of goods to stand against a military invasion and. a very warm welcome to you if you've just joined us here on our to international live from moscow are you with me to say. first a second attempt is in as many days to create kids a central square of a tense that has led to more purchase and burning tires are you looking at the latest pictures from my done we're burning tires simply means of the black smoke into the air a little earlier stuff was broke out as protesters apparently refused to leave the
square prior hasn't been extinguished become city has been on my gun food laws in november when the anti-government protests first erupted our correspondent you're not going to show is at the scene. on twitter for the latest from here we're the ukrainian army says it's preparing to take lugansk into near in the east the street by street building by building the two cities are regional capitals and centers of anti government resistance and for that they are paying heavily at least four people were killed in the latest attack on lugansk now the army's shelling has left to much of the city destroy locals in lugansk up putting on a map on a map areas are stuck in attacks now as you can see here on the map there we're showing you right now there's hardly a spot the missing of over five hundred thousand people who used to live there
almost half of them have now left the area for national reporter from the russia ukraine border where thousands are scaping the war zone. it's the final countdown for lugansk indiana warns for now eastern ukraine remains under the control of and together and forces the challenge in the region is intensifying to try to constitute to cover grevilleas to come the next checkpoint at the russian ukrainian border the line of cars and people stretches for kilometers and almost nobody is willing to cross into ukraine once you are through here we're in the empty terror here ration zone where no one can guarantee your safety for hours to search for a driver to take us towards the guns with little success then we met and the tolly he's sixty three years old an ace from the guns almost every day he travels to
russia and then betty clayton with a mission. when people escape from the attacks they took very little with that that's why many of the refugees don't even have documents when they arrive in a new the latest so why bring the matter any way mr recently people have started to ask him to bring them into claims they've lost hope of a quick end to the crisis and the two he says sometimes he arrives too late and the house he has been sent to has either been looted or dies in ruins we ask him to take us along on one of his salvage treats but he says he hasn't been able to get across the border for two days himself the reporter go on you don't know if you'll be shot at or not when you're driving through the garden there is an area the army uses to attack the city by him if they're surrounded but they keep attacking the city. so instead we try to get to deniece we ask him into government fighter with lies ahead for alexander tells us his small town which lies between the c.t.
and the border has seen some of the most intense shelling in the area is driving back there and he admits the rocky trace. really a boomerang effect i think they don't want to let the regimes cross the russian border which is why they are shooting at the roses they're also trying to cut us off from humanitarian aid food and water the moment if that xander politely refuses to take us with him we take his number and agree to keep in touch to check on him and the route once he reaches his destination the wrong several times but no one is answering reef notion r.t. on the russian ukrainian border. playing an active role in kids' quest down in the east is of the national guard a privately funded special group that largely consists of ultranationalist this video shows one of the units going on a witch hunt or what they call separatists you can see soldiers storming a house and detaining a man is being beaten and then put in a car with
a bag over his head. the national guard is very relieved to be behind the disappearance of a real number three photo journalist stan and went missing in eastern ukraine four days ago and is reportedly being held captive by the agency has demanded stand him is released the hash tag of free and really has been set up on twitter to help the plight of just two weeks ago a british correspondent dreamed been occasional work in florida he was also detained he says he was beaten and tortured for three days before going to support . ukraine could have cut the transit of all russian gas to kiffin believes it will help contribute to the pressure on moscow brought about with the e.u. sanctions now in a political report it wouldn't just be russia that's hurt take a listen obviously it will affect russia's shipments through europe but it should
look at the implications the situation will have on russia's european partners especially of the countries that are in the center in the east and in the south of europe some of them are getting as much as almost one hundred percent of their gas supply from russia via ukraine and of course with all those countries have already found themselves out in the cold literally during the so-called gas wars between russia and ukraine some years back and they could be looking for another repetition of that experience if indeed ukraine does go through with its promise of sanctions and we may assume that ukraine wants to punish russia by imposing these sanctions but as a result what we're looking at really is ukraine punishing its european neighbors. political analysts. believe see the queen's announcement is likely to raise eyebrows among its european partners. are seeing that this proposal will never gets reality since pressure from brussels by commission and other actors from the national states but furthermore it shows that the ukrainian government is
not willing to cooperate at all and sees only their own interest after hearing this is for all the states in southeast europe like austria. hungary serbia and bulgaria to lobbying much more to get a very secure supply of gas and if you create is not building to guarantee it there will be other options. well one of these options which could be used to pump russian gas into europe bypassing ukraine is the south stream project for now the construction of the pipeline is stalling under the pressure of the e.u. nor makers who are arguing it doesn't comply with some of the regulations not this by that so the european nations involved say they're ready to adopt of the necessary needles in order to finish the construction. the u.s. has carried out new airstrikes on jihad is militants that have managed to occupy
terrorists in northwestern iraq the u.s. military had video of the strike that targeted the a tiller repositions of the so-called fly make state militant group the attacks come after president obama pledged to protect u.s. personnel in iraq threatened by the rapid advents of the slammin but as i was he is eager to see for many believe it's washington that paved the way for the was a good father a new. one leaving behind a sovereign stable and self-reliant iraq three years on is america coming back today i was there as two operations in iraq targeted airstrikes to protect our american personnel. and a humanitarian effort to help save thousands of iraqi civilians the target this time is the islamic state formally known as isis a terror organization which hasn't only been rampaging through the country with tremendous speed and extreme violence but has even proclaimed its own state
stretching from iraq to syria so radical even al qaeda says it's too much brutally murdering anyone even muslims in this way destroying holy sites attacking religious minorities taking control of key infrastructure including would refineries and dams military hardware as well while certainly potentially more dangerous today than al qaeda they are very extremely radical group with increasing capabilities capabilities which are only slightly state to set its sights way beyond iraq and syria. and could tell you. and i know i don't have that to another but it wasn't just you know the come. out of the no. cell phone the model. because you know but i shall love him better than i got so enough that i think a lot incapable of dealing with them on its own back that's to washington for help woodward to be slamming state or isis fighters come from we are where we are because we armed the syrian rebels we have been fighting alongside al-qaeda
fighting alongside i says isis is now emboldened into countries but here's the anomaly we're with isis in syria we're on the same sort of the war so those who want to get involved to stop isis in iraq are allied with isis in syria that is the real contradiction to this whole policy the white house says that the limited u.s. military action in iraq could be saying that. the state tightens its grip on iraq according to the un and around two hundred thousand new refugees have fled their homes while isis claims it's made more than a dozen military gains over the past five days alone you were just going off r t. wasn't it proclaims its mission is to contain the advance of the jihadists but as antiwar activist david swanson told our team america blacklist the supply policy in the middle east gave birth to the conflict in the first place. these are u.s. weapons us weapons on both sides in this combat just as three years ago in libya
and in so many wars when you are the top supplier of weapons to the world seventy nine percent of of weapons transfers into the middle east are from the united states and you're going to have u.s. weapons evolved on all sides which is just fine for absolutely heartless weapons makers looking for a profit but it fuels destruction when you're providing weapons to unstable governments to never stable rebel forces to dictatorships and democracies and brutal governments totally you're going to see those weapons misused of course and you're going to see them transferred to parties you didn't intend to have them. the u.s. claims that involvement in iraq will be a limited one with obama promising not to send more troops back claim u.s. troops first employed in iraq in march of two thousand and three and then number picked four years later reaching one hundred and sixty six thousand the presence
began to shrink when president barack obama announced on the withdrawal in two thousand and nine but a walk respondent eric margolis says despite obama's promises the new campaign in iraq will soon demand more and more full of. token here strikes there designed to scare the. sunni forces and to boost the morale of the shia forces the problem is this is a classic situation we used to go in vietnam mission creep and so the u.s. is already sent in at least eight hundred combat troops special forces into iraq there's a lot of americans in the kurdish area in erbil and the miserable performance of the iraqi army suggests that the u.s. will have to win to feeling more forcefully if it wants to prop up the current
government the world's largest oil firms and join forces for i'll take the exploration coming up on our team to national labs and that's in mobile i said to drill russia as well the one most well and a multi-billion dollar deal unaffected by the foreign relations between moscow and washington. they have side where the funds are going to go so some of it's going to textbooks and to tuition that leaves less money for people to put food on the tables colleges across the us to set up food banks to help the hungry cash strapped students we'll tell you more in just a few minutes. well not talking about language at all but i will only react to situations i have read the reports i'm likely to put the no i will leave that to the state department to comment on your latter point. to secure
a car is on the job here no god. no more weasel words. when you need a direct question be prepared for a change when you when you should be ready for a. freedom of speech a little down to to freedom. dramas that being the worst are. stories others use in the. simpsons changing the world right now. to get you. from around the. globe.
thanks for staying with us all the giants from russia and america have begun a joint project to explore the arctic rolls nafta and exxon mobil will be using a giant rig to drill the first well in the program that will be russia's most northern platform covered with thick ice for most of the sea where the two will be operating is up to three hundred fifty meters deep but underneath all of that is an estimated six billion tons of extractable oil belongs to the west siberia problems which already provides russia with most of its oil and gas president putin has praised the problematic approach of exxon mobil which is hoping for long term corp keep the boy filled of the center for policy studies think tank believes that despite sanctions this has the potential to become a successful example of international teamwork. this particular project they've
been working on it for several years. mobility already invested many many millions of dollars they could do with the oil and they're going to have the sanctions do not apply to this particular project because the deal was already signed the russian state oil company has a twenty percent investment by being rude to spin mode will exxon or e location provides new sources of hydrocarbons so they really need time and they've already invested a considerable amount of money it's so they'd have to write that off if things didn't go ahead so i think it's in that respect my prospects are relatively optimistic the 1980's i look at what we have lined up online learn how. losing the battle for life while drugs producers and hospital blog hons medicine
approaches conditions. internet bullying as well sad trend among today's teens but parenting one youngster has found a way to fight back glenna one in her toolbox on our t.v. . at least five palestinians have reportedly been killed in gaza on saturday a day after the fridge of things fire with hamas crumbled but there's another battle televisa fighting and this time it's inside its own borders anger against those daring to speak out against the offensive policy report. the war going gaza is becoming a hash tag headache the air war in the skies has been joined by the hot air war online with almost two thousand casualties across the border it's no wonder many arab israelis are rebelling in support of the gaza brethren but sometimes there's
a price to pay as russians are treating the most russia helped organize demonstrations against the israeli army and posted online about what he and others call the i.d.f. massacres in gaza police investigated me several times for my political activity especially during the war. and also i have received threats through the phone through facebook by right wing callers who were for things like. killing and things like that several israeli mayors have suspended outworkers for posting support for gaza's fighters online some israeli universities hospitals and even mobile phone companies have followed suit one student who wore a t. shirt with the word palestine and a cafe near a traditional palestinian scarf now faces possible expulsion they are expressing their opinion it might be in a sarcastic way but it doesn't have any incitement to violence it doesn't have an
incitement for its isn't it doesn't call for an act of faith violence and therefore legally speaking it is part of the speech that should be given the protection of the constitutional air protection arab students were too frightened to speak to us on camera but what they would say is that the university had completely ignored posts calling for their death the reality shows us not only now but also before that when it gets to the freedom of expression of the arabs it is easily more easily restricted l.f. a t.v. deals with such cases as the head of a worker's rights organization is now contacted almost daily but i would be poor yes we've been fired. if suspended for speaking out against israel's operation in gaza even those who condemn the racism of far right wing israelis face punishment sadly we have been in this before the for the second intifada of a situation of but much like this time it's much more wider. and you feel it's
a lot of hate a situation of really going to the bad. i'm not feeling the government is doing anything for a country that claims to be the only democracy in the region it's a serious charge in today's world the fight for public opinion is arguably as important if not more than what goes on on the battlefield as critics of israel's operation in gaza continue to climb both in and outside the country tel aviv will need to find a more efficient weapon than just merely trying to silence her detractors policy r t tel aviv. in an effort to june cool heating tensions between mania and azerbaijan let him it appeared to him is getting both leaders together in sochi the meeting comes after a spike in violence between rival armies in the. enclave and the latest the skirmishes at least eighteen soldiers were killed. they're predominantly out of
mania and region has been in dispute for more than twenty years since the early one nine hundred for war between the two sides of the conflict ended with the region proclaiming independence although of the vision still claims it as its territory got in colors jonathan steele believes russia will do everything possible to prevent another spiral of violence on its borders. don't think russia wants any reversion to arms because there's already been the problem in ukraine going on russia doesn't want another conflict breaking out you know very close to a certain territory and it's about the worst sort of clashes for almost twenty years and i covered the clashes initially in the early ninety's the whole thing started and then there was a cease fire in one thousand nine hundred four and this is really almost the worst thing since then. another world in pakistan supporters of an end to government
cleric care have clashed with police in several cities one person was killed in the violence and a several arrests it canada based here. returned to pakistan in june and vowed to stage massive protests to topple the government accusing it of corruption. while the in yemen al qaida militants have executed at least fifteen soldiers witnesses say their bus was ambushed near the town of sheer bomb unconfirmed reports their bodies were beheaded earlier this week al qaida claimed responsibility for a number of attacks on the army in the south and southeast of yemen that claimed the lives of twenty soldiers. skyrocketing tuition fees in america are now forcing many students just struggle to find any food for thought so some universities are now setting up soup kitchens to make up make sure that the people's can make it through the day artie's that doesn't see
a chicken now reports. college enter a world of possibilities. well crippling student debt after leaving these doors is one pandemic that's already well established in the u.s. what's not often talked about is another dangerous trend college student hunger. and often seen students in my classes you know eating chips or something like that and my first reaction is oh it's a little snack but very well that could be lunch that summer time so most colleges around america are largely deserted but even so in schools like this one preparations are well underway to feed those in need when they come back in september according to the college and university food bank alliance there are about one hundred twenty food pantries at higher education institutions throughout the u.s. dozens more are in the process of being set up like here at nassau community college in new york's long island they're choosing to do something to help themselves and to improve their lot in life by going to school they have to decide
where their funds are going to go so some of it's going to textbooks into tuition that leaves less money for people to put food on their tables the food pantry boom is only beginning as prices for education skyrocket having grown by five hundred forty percent since the eighty's according to the u.s. department of labor some people are coming here in the not even way. they can barely afford the tuition nineteen year old stacy abby is a originally from an upper middle class family in india living below the poverty line since moving to america it's a negative mentality sometimes when people say oh you're coming to a country and you're taking all the lead and all the food stamps we don't use any of that as my family is scared they were going to get stacey says there are many more students like her most of them she says keep their hunger to themselves it's kind of embarrassing to go and tell that to people when you see that other people have it and you don't. but i've seen
a lot of students who are hungry and the ied. they say a muffin or something and you know when i asked them all did you what did you have today a muffin is what they tell me it's that space that in this community of twenty three thousand people the pantry is not only meant for students but also college staff who are in need the plight of college students as part of a broader struggle in america where food security is a problem while policies to keep up with those in need often ignore reality when you listen to people in congress talking about yeah we'll cut food stamps by fifteen dollars a month they should try it well they should try to feed their families on food stamps so on they have to say and see what a fifteen dollars cup would do well politicians narrow in on cutting costs rather than seeing the bigger picture it's volunteers like stacy along with two other students and faculty that are trying to help however they can by building and running what is for now a small space you don't have to be scared you don't have to be hungry there's
someone out there who cares that they hope will make a real difference and. long island new york. all the way on our t.v. is secret walls and secret drains are reports of what you'd probably rather not know about. a few weeks ago we discussed detroit's plans to shut off water to those who can't pay their bills logically what a basic human the society could get taken away some protesters gathered to give their opinion on the issue at our plaza and what is the response from the state maybe some sort of dialogue or explanation as to why they have to turn off the water you know they turned on the high tech quote non lethal weaponry against the
protesters that you. red system which basically blasted the protestors with sound which sounds but intended you mean until you look into it and read that the weapon can cause permanent hearing loss the company even admits this is true at less than fifty meters we see all across the country so-called non-lethal weapons being used to very harmful and even to well we thought ns but why does this happen because they make breaking up protests easy and safe for the cops remember in the old days when you had to physically break up protests or things like el read allow any coward to just flip a switch to disperse a crowd with not a drop of blood visible and the fact that it seems not harmful as the police to be justified in using it whenever they want for the sake of the constitution i think no police forces should be able to use a spell read technology but that's just my opinion. both when the unit being union promised to met ukraine become part of it it clearly
contributed to the bathtub ration of tensions within ukraine ukraine will not become part of the european union the won't tell tales ukraine absolutely doesn't have the economic level to become part of the e.u. for then. the slippery slope doesn't only concern the use made of these machines. technological evolutions give these weapons more and more sophisticated capabilities. to see ram is a cannon that destroys missiles while they're flying.
