those of us alive back then remember when there were soviet missiles put into cuba how frightened americans were and how angry and how we almost went to a nuclear confrontation over having weapons of that kind of destruction placed that close to the united states. just so if the united states considers cuba to be in its backyard. then crimea lays at russia's doorstep. the consequences of a u.s. seizure of the face or a nato base which in general. but almost a sum up as soon as the insuring is natural. you have taught me to. put you in with a. post today and you know unless. you know us enough to speak with practical. opinion

1:39 pm
surprising that ukraine's new authorities were watching the situation unfolding there with growing alarm. more and more of odessa as people were joining the anti my don movement at the same time as events in eastern ukraine were heating up. the new ukrainian government didn't have the power to wage war on too many fronts if odessa were to join the growing uprising in the eastern regions it would seriously complicate the situation. this rebellion had to be extinguished immediately and at any cost and that cost was high. on may 2nd 2014 soccer fans flocked to the center of odessa city for the ukrainian championship match surprisingly a great number of these fans who descended into odessa just the night before also turned out to be fighters from the my don self-defense units along with members of radical organizations from all parts of ukraine that these.

depths. aura maybe in the shallows. secret prisons are not usually what comes to mind when thinking about europe however he even the most prosperous can be deceived within this 0 zone there were 2 view houses were allowed to leave prison was located and only cia people had access to the story investigators show how they uncovered the darkest dealings of the secret services but i mean. the great of nor in. pocket p.c. maybe a sword yes or no for. crying for justice on r.t. . was a pandemic no certainly no borders just blind to nationalities.
1:46 pm
has emerged we caught up with the we don't have the facts in the whole world needs to be. judged as commentary prices this time to time so we can do better we should know better. everyone is contributing way but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever the challenges created with the response has been masked so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together. in 2014 saakashvili refused summons to appear in court as a witness in several criminal cases later that same year he was accused of misuse of power and embezzle. saakashvili wound up in the u.s.
1:47 pm
and soon his friends in washington found him a new assignment. mikail actively supported my down and very soon was rewarded with a high position in the new ukrainian government. first as the president's counselor and then as the governor of odessa the day before taking this position he renounced his citizenship to georgia the country of these birth and became a ukrainian citizen. in the scene that asked others gordon would have done in the way exhorted rode in a. coup or the done in the way exhorted rode in. as they say the battle is worth the blood both literally and figuratively. somebody afforded us by the us out. last thought on my. chest but i have. geoffrey pyatt the u.s.
1:48 pm
ambassador to ukraine paid a visit to saakashvili just a month after he took office in odessa it is law is the all last administration is delivering results and you raise your voice to see a steady flow of embassy in washington visitors coming here the meeting was fruitful and geoffrey generous. no matter how well saakashvili is job goes it looks like he shouldn't be worried about his own finances on his facebook page he posted an official document showing that the new governor of odessa gets a pretty penny from washington almost $200000.00 a year for comparison the governor of maine gets $70000.00 a year so if. became a new u.s. state it would be at the top of the list mr saakashvili should feel right at home in his newly adopted country he is best of friends with fellow color revolutionary leader viktor yuschenko who is the godfather of his son.

souls on board all feared dead it was a murder it was a crime there's been this odd nonchalance about pursuing the answers there was a report a very limited report put out a few months after the event but since then they said the next report will be on the 1st anniversary of the event but you deal with a criminal investigation before becomes a cold case so there's been this curious element of why is there not greater pressure from both the media and the the western governments to answer these questions but even without any answers the fingers were pointed immediately that's not an accident. it's happening because a russian support evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by a surface to air missile that was launched from an area that is controlled by russian backed separatists inside of ukraine usual. to put up

a national distaste for. the malaysian boeing wasn't the 1st plane to play a significant part in american russian relationships on september 1st 1983 korean airlines flight from new york to seoul via anchorage was shot down by a soviet interceptor aircraft over the territory of the u.s.s.r. in the sea of japan there was absolutely no justification i don't legal or moral for what the soviets did the tragedy of the korean bowing was considered a perfect occasion to demonstrate the nato military power within dangerous proximity to the soviets on november 2nd 1983 nato launched able archer attend a command post exercise simulating a conflict escalation culminating in a nuclear attack it was followed by placing pershing 2 nuclear missiles in europe. what reagan didn't take into consideration was the paranoid overreaction of the
1:52 pm
soviets. a recently declassified us intelligence report shows that for the 1st time since the cuban missile crisis the world was close to nuclear war. just like in 1903 the malaysian boeing crash was leveraged against the enemy. a new wave of sanctions hit russia mediately after the tragedy. the united states is imposing new sanctions in key sectors of the russian economy. year in 3 months later the dutch safety board published a report that is itself been plats m.h. 70 crashed because of. 3 well 4 and or have the today just outside of the arrow playing the best the left side of the cockpit the report didn't blame any specific group or person and estimated a very wide area of 320 kilometers as

a zone from which the missiles fired at the same time the russian producer of boog missiles day conducted its own independent investigation. that they speeded me up the fullest. lou of the delegates i mean if you like it the nist is up a school during the experiment they blew up a retired airliner with a bouquet missile and came to the conclusion that the malaysian plane was brought down by the older type of missiles not used by russia anymore but still in the possession of ukraine the company claims that the missile was launched from the territory controlled by the ukrainian military. one would expect that these controversial results would again stir up public interest in the investigation but the tragedy of malaysian flight m h 17 at already played its role in the big geopolitical game therefore it was soon forgotten the goal was achieved after the 3rd wave of sanctions hit russia the
