11:04 am
the debris and bring some sense of normalcy back to the area. i want to tell people we need more help more supplies and things are still behind here beyond the physical destruction and there is a distressing psychological factor as well the city of the walky is right on the edge of the twenty kilometer exclusion zone for radiation contamination in fact in a recent study by japan's nuclear safety commission forty five percent of one thousand children tested in any walk and it may bring cities have tested positive for thyroid radiation exposure a figure that has parents appalled that the government has reset the great here if a safety and are not concerned with the consequences their reaction is only to help the governments they face but they don't actually take care of the damage and the people here first there was the earthquake then the devastating a wave which rushed in and destroyed this part of the coastal city of it walking also there are the nuclear radiation waves that are coming into this area as well
11:05 am
the volunteers that are coming in to rebuild this city certainly have their work cut out for them but just like the city itself the people who live here the community they need to have their spirits rebuilt as well. that. again in an effort to keep the community emotionally strong organizers have brought this acting troupe in from tokyo they say their goal is to provide something beyond a simple entertainment or a program on the web a certain japanese pride and in this destructive situation i would like to bring good things and present the spirit of japan and japanese pride by bringing people together and making people smile. through that shared community experience there is a sense of hope that the city of the walky can indeed recover a convenience store because they close their city hall but you see anything like it is coming back. and with an understanding that there is still much more work that
11:06 am
needs to be done the people here are working to keep their community together. i just want them to stay where they want. and they can be helpful that are keep doing it. rebuilding the city one step at a time any walkies city japan sean thomas r.t. . well in the wake of the crisis at fukushima japan is going to stress test each of its nuclear power plants to determine how well the reactors could further withstand a natural disaster the move is also ended assuring people of the facilities are safe he spoke to the director general of the world nuclear association who blames the media for stirring up public panic in japan is a preview of what's to come next hour in our program. we've just seen twenty four thousand japanese citizens killed by an earthquake and a tsunami. we've seen the media have a frenzy in covering the accident at fukushima which has not made it had not been
11:07 am
responsible for a single radiation fatality i think it was a tragedy in terms of the world's understanding of the essential safety of nuclear power i also think however that it might also be educational in the long term because people have begun to focus on i mean as they begin to begin to focus even more clearly on the ultimate consequences of fukushima they will learn that there was relatively little damage done to. our five minutes past the hour here in moscow are you without the russian government has published a list of all individuals and organizations proven to be sponsoring terrorism it also includes international entities involved in funding extremism their names taken from a u.n. blacklist our north caucasus correspondent matthew no question about has details on this. list of individuals and companies suspect it's often fulfillment in financing of terrorism was published in this government own newspaper this morning you know this document was
11:08 am
a previously confidential but now part of it is open to public now companies that are present in this list are located in different countries and basically across the globe there are companies that are based in egypt in afghanistan and in somalia and even in germany and the united states in terms of individuals they also. come from a significant range of countries from the countries of the middle east from african countries from germany the united states and from russia russian citizens primarily komo from the republics of the region of russia's north caucasus from change and from and i guess there are also some well known names in this list some well known groups like the muslim brotherhood al qaida and russia's most wanted terrorist. you know this document shows that some kind of a gnat or a cow has been created that connects countries with each other and that the problem of terrorism has become an international issue now several years ago the world
11:09 am
sawed off by a chechen terrorists that are present here in this region as of chechen rebels but now the situation has changed whether russia's most wanted man doku umarov being present on the list of the world's most wanted terrorists and it really is this document shows how the system works and the problem for a turn is far from being solved and it is an international problem. being a question of our reporting where you write that well a lot more still to come on the program here on our to including something weapons or selling out. quarterly planning to export two hundred tons to saudi arabia it's sparking human rights concerns and is condemned by opposition politicians as the legal. process of what's behind it romania's wish to unite with neighboring moldova he reports from both countries where tensions are running high. diplomats from russia and france reportedly clashed over nato's handling of the libyan crisis at
11:10 am
a meeting of the un security council held behind closed doors it's believed that moscow criticized the french decision to deliver weapons to anti kadafi rebels which russia says was a violation of the un resolution that you're going to be going off now reports on why moscow is taking such a strong stance. the french for him. mr is saying that there is no more need to airdrop weapons to the rebels in libya saying that they are now organized enough to establish ties with foreign partners and get the needed weaponry themselves and this statement came after another announcement by paris that it has been dropping all arms to be only be an opposition saying that this is the only way you think to prevent civilian deaths while russia strongly few sleet criticizes this saying that this is a direct violation of the u.n. no fly zone resolution because its original point was it to protect civilians and
11:11 am
not supplying the weapons it's not the first time that the north wales own resolution which initially gave the green light for the entire military operation in libya that this is becoming a source of contention between the members of the security council because first of all the operation has been going on for over four months and civilians are still being killed not only in the fighting between got to have these forces and the rebels but during nato airstrikes and the supporters say that scores of civilians have already been killed because of these strikes including some members of got our fees family including children also several western powers send to other trainers to help organize the rebels there's now this talk about supplying arms to the rebels france directly says that is that it's already done this in germany is thinking about that as well so russia is fusion the criticizing all of this saying
11:12 am
that this was not the point all for the north fly zone resolution because its point was to stop the violence and not to take part in this conflict and also perhaps france is the only country at the that the moment to which confirmed that it's supplying weapons and supplying weapons to the rebels. just on tuesday these horses were able to capture a lot of weapons which apparently was heading to the rebels from across or and was produced in belgium so all of this is creating. conflicts with the members of the un security council in fact what's happening in libya is already affecting the u.n. security council's policies on syria because the russia says that it will veto any similar resolution on syria after what's happened with the resolution. so if you go to spin off reporting right now it's ten minutes past the hour here in moscow you with artsy germany is reportedly selling the two hundred tanks to saudi arabia talk
11:13 am
of a deal has caused outrage among germany's opposition politicians who claim the government would be breaking its own export rules earlier i spoke to francisco put on a german member of the european parliament who says that saudi arabia isn't a country that should be selling weapons to. stephanie not a country that fulfills the criteria c.f.d. own german export rules it certainly doesn't meet the e.u. code of conduct on sex ports so we think that this actually should be stopped the export of before it got its blessing was checked with the americans. gave sort of the ok on it i think of course it's also this idea of a stabilizing factor in the region but i think this is completely misled we have seen what can happen to regimes and we don't think this is the right moment to send such a signal politically but also to send really the arms you remember all the delegation of all relations with israel looking at the wider region here what effect could the
11:14 am
deal have on israel's security. you know probably most likely from the israeli current government position it's even the satellite is ng factor but you never know also how to reach you will continue to develop saudi arabia isn't the best friend of iran and iran isn't a friend of israel so my and. anyway as my friend that might be good logic but i say again as i said we should not be misled to avoid current developments and also the credibility of germany and to your opinion in the region i think that's a very important point not only towards israel but also you know the palestinian and entire region of who do we support and how we stand the texel double of when it comes to human rights. and with our two coming your way in just a few minutes here net gains. what may be seen as a convenience in the lot being utilized by indian fishermen revolutionizing their business and turning them into entrepreneurs and businessmen in their communities
11:15 am
to report on what it takes to turn a traditional trade into a high tech enterprise. europe's ongoing struggle to save the euro has been dealt yet another blow as portugal has had its debt downgraded to junk status moody's the credit rating agency behind the move says a default is likely unless the country is given another bailout many analysts have questioned the logic of saddling struggling economies with more speculation grows over whether the e.u. is ready to come to portugal rescue yet again and the direction the e.u. and the i.m.f. are taking in solving this crisis may well lead to severe consequences that's according to douglas carswell an m.p. from the british conservative party. i think it would be immensely food dish to have another bailout because what we're doing with each so-called bailout is adding to the amount of debt owed by countries who are already bankrupt if we really want to fix this problem instead of adding to the debts of portugal greece and other
11:16 am
countries what we should be doing is three things we should be devaluing the currency is that means leaving the euro we should be allowing them to default on their debt restructuring if you prefer that time and we should be forcing them to downsize their expensive public sectors by so-called bailing out greece we're not helping greek people what we're doing is we're transfer. that debt burden onto the shoulders of european taxpayers it's frankly an outrageous scam and i think it will mean that you know my children and my children's children will have vastly higher tax bills it's not right it's not good for us in western europe it's not good for greece it's not good for portugal the argument is that we should continue to pay this money to the i.m.f. but i happen to think the i.m.f. is not doing what it has historically done so well it's actually ineffective it is an organization that is that is run with the the wrong approach it's a little bit like putting the arsonists in charge of the fire department we'll continue to see hard pressed western european taxpayers. or rather not asked but
11:17 am
required without consent to foot the bill for the folly of the political class in pursuit of a grand vision of monetary union it's outrageous and it's not fair incidentally it's also going to consign us to the economic slow lane for many years to come if this continues. and we've got a plenty more pictures of the unrest surrounding the bailout website r.t. dot com including dramatic footage of one of our correspondents are being caught up in the violent showdown between protesters and police and continuing to report through clouds of tear gas. also online how to find the secret to internal life we put all the advice you need if you want to live forever all that and much much more he thought.
11:18 am
the mobile about mobile phone actually has become an integral part of everyday modern day life but what's seen as a fun new gadget in some countries has proven enough to revolutionize their lives and livelihoods of many people elsewhere. are now reports on the. indian fishermen who are casting a next generation net work for their catch. most when kumar wraps up his engine for a day of fishing off the coast of carolina the southernmost state in india that was a little bit of i studied in school until the seventh grade but then i had to leave school because we were not economically well off so i had to help my dad with fishing kumar's one of thousands of fishermen in the state who wake up at one o'clock in the morning to earn a living for decades fishermen like kumar relied on luck and prayers to find a good catch but all that has changed since the introduction of the mobile phone in the state more than ten years ago the boy. if the fish is not available where we go
11:19 am
fishing fisherman in other parts of the sea call us and tell us where we might be able to find a good catch then we go to that particular place. in addition because of the new ease of communication kumar is able to find out how much demand is that is local market and the prices that buyers are offering in order to determine where best to sell his fish today he is making double the amount of money he was making before he started using a mobile phone he now owns his own boat and says he is able to send his three daughters to college and india has the fastest growing mobile phone market in the world in the most growth is happening in rural areas what may be seen as a convenience in the last is being utilized by indian fishermen revolutionizing their business and turning them into entrepreneurs and business men in their communities most of these fishermen have been doing this work for generations and never imagined they'd become so tech savvy they had watched their fathers and grandfathers come home from sea several times with no fish at all but today that
11:20 am
never happens you know about it a little there's a lot of difference between the times when we used to gay fishing with stick approach and now when we go fishing with engine but after the arrival of the phone it's become easier for us as studies show that mobile phones aren't just empowering the fisherman in the community more competition means better prices for consumers on average they fallen by four percent it's a new quality of life for the people of this community who never dreamed that they would escape poverty. most fishermen are literates but we want to give a proper education to our children and that is possible because of the earning we get from the fishing business there's no doubts that mobile phones have helped. providing new opportunities by advancing their tradition with technology preassure either r.t. carola india. you with r.t. live from the heart of moscow or it's not nearly twenty minutes past the hour and

romanians from the states from romania republic of moldova. big. for the. fact we are separated unjustly and we want to leave this historical bucharest official line is that reunification of the two nations can only happen if the post soviet state becomes an e.u. member but politicians in moldova have expressed concerns that president a cesspool would not wait for that eventuality and will instead at some point in the future expand his country's borders to absorb moldova the president. a couple of months ago clearly said. within twenty five years from now. we'll integrate. here and the. european integration for many of its actions is actually discrediting the whole concept of the european integration
11:24 am

11:25 am
want to reunification this is a. big leap possible. if that's the case then it's hard to imagine any real. if you carry sion in the near future especially with up to forty percent of romanians agreeing did laughter have bessarabia back but almost two thirds of the population wants to remain sober and. see reports from book arrest in romania and republic of moldova. over to our current issues here with i just have business news for us. well welcome to business thanks for joining me this hour the currency wars are not over the driver to find a way out seems to be fading brazil's finance minister says he's ready for extra steps to stem the damaging rise of the ryal and according to give and take a big big economies have failed to agree on guidelines to manage their currencies
