first president of independent or those students laugh for a sketch. the currency tries assume it's because credit panic among the population if you will have been allowed to paint the us dollars in euros for petrol in tourist services is perceived as a recognition of the defeat of the russian ruble in this situation present exaltation who suddenly made a statement he could release political prisoners many analysts said he was trying. bogen financial aid from the west but a day later to admit to the shinku his political rivals were sentenced to long prison terms the crackdown the opposition leaders has made the aid from the i.m.f. virtually impossible and still can receive a one billion dollars from russia but could only do so if it sells more to some key state assets experts say middle of the shampoos finding himself in a very shaky situation if he doesn't find a way to stabilize the feverish national economy he may lose the grip of the country has been ruling by the strong hand during the last seventeen years.
with a good day mr scrooge that will take a look at the low thanks very much for coming to our show it's an honor to have you here today we will be discussing the situation valorous it is a dire situation that russians are very concerned about we share with ac why is belarus facing this crisis today some people certain media and kremlin sources say that the main reason for it was that what a shame because governments prompt a lot of money into the rebel russian economy in the run up to the elections do you support that theory you know creases this crisis these are all illegitimate presidents fault because surely it will be a big cash injections were his fault too he lied to russia europe and his own people on television and on the arena it was also started quite some time ago a very long time ago. absolute power corrupts absolutely. such people don't care about democracy and elections any longer. and he's this way
because at least obsessed with x. the us that is the main reason less reason are an illegitimate president i say illegitimate because he was never elected he lost to the latest election switch and you'll see that he completely subdued everyone you worked with turning them into complex just you know what. the people of belarus had to suffer witness to i wanted to say bill russians but i'd rather go with the people of belarus to avoid is sounding like a nationalist this is acutely of the world with nevertheless the outcome of the last year's presidential election valorous is still in a major reason for the current devastating economic situation in the country there is this report from spotlight villain that the media. when he was running for his fourth consecutive term last year who question instead nothing to ensure success
one of his carrots was inserted percent increase in wages extravagance might have added to look at shanghai as popularity but it didn't help the country's economy which only went from bad to worse the opposition never trusted their fish the results of the presidential vote the night they were announced thousands of people went out in the streets in mainz to protest immigration is real action police opens up there really were dispersed by the police more than six hundred protesters were arrested the mass detentions of the lower such as ition during the election were harshly criticize the brought this by them dozens of protesters accused of when i was in the rally i've been given prison sentences the e.u. and the us condemned the repressions and introduced sanctions against the ruse they can only pressure combined with google's champers extravagant reaction spending that eventually led to the financial crisis this week the billers currency was
devalued by more than a third eighteen into the pre-election wage increase though it was was granted as three billion dollars from the eurasian economic community a grouping of with publics that's considered no more than time for relief good fiscal and monetary poussin reforms are needed because they've gone. we still mostly been running this will be styled the first time in the seventeen years president will be shamed in his being in power he finds himself under the impression both internationally and home with some trials of the opposition leaders combined with the current financial turmoil make the prospect of congress ever more real and. has been for mr fyshe cabbage you just said has lost the latest elections. cording to the opposition because he claims he won it december nineteenth so mass protest
against election rigging. the next day i will russian courts that started handing out guilty verdicts one after another day after day but i think thirty people were convicted intel told foley oh most all opposition leaders were sentenced to time in jail some of them got suspended sentences some didn't does this mean there is nobody left in belarus who can protest against lucas was that over there when they go in no they had this saying during the war you can't change everyone the same is true today you can't jail everyone don't go to jail the best there are people also you have to realize that the belorussian opposition is purely nominal because there are real opposition like the want to have in the west or like you have in russia our parliamentary opposition was wiped out it was the those were the people who had
the courage to rise up against the legal regime them against state terrorism yes you're right in that really that too it's hard but still i think we have enough people. to transform and improve should the overall situation in their. this is coach minsk saw a terrible terrorist attack in april it was a terrible tragedy but immediately after it occurred because people started saying that look assange go there's always acted as a shrewd politician and used the strength in his own political standing and to weaken the opposition. do you think that's true that was. he said straight away that it could only be the opposition who could have done it it's just war which was proved not to be the fact later but it's still with him and
this only because they were real professionals some investigating. affairs are police are too stupid and busy battering civilians as you put it just so we know why did the russians and israeli investigators. when they conducted a quality investigation when it turned out none of that culture and some were involved with the opposition. shank of course will still claim it was the opposition's fault now he blames all the earlier attacks from them the what they say i think was done by other people than those who investigated they said taffy so whenever things get difficult ilads did you know it would brought his son to the explosion site even before the bodies were removed and if there was a child has to be protected from seeing such horror but you brought his son there to show everybody how much he cares about the bill or russian people and the victims of the tattoo you're saying look the sender is
a bad father and the agent and president to use strong words like stupid no i said other people who are stupid is going to do in the group in the book why are you still not in jail. you well. you see. i know what kind of person look he is. so i never do anything that can land being present at the moment of the nevertheless i'm still the most persecuted man and bill or it's. now can you see those people are not stupid if the special benefit that i receive for my services to the people of the bill or it's only to the mounds to fifty cents a month to what it used to be a dollar but now it's just fifty cents with a so what don't you think this is stupid because i was the poverty line well even if you are ready to live in poverty you still have to spend a couple of dollars
a day are in employment benefit is twelve or thirteen dollars which is also a joke that they say your pension is less than the unemployment benefits yes and less than the minimum pension but that's just the benefit of for my special services to the people of color it's what you call a man and prepare as such a bill if not stupid question well they're not actually stupid but they have to work in such a way to television who will be able to see on the boss if you're stupid and he would be right well another reason you're free must be that. the movie doesn't see you as a political rival the question was well i think it is because i'm a lawyer biding citizen of my teacher and i observe even the clause where we have this illusion so he can suffer criticism you know he can take it when you know why aren't you and president bush. on sawrey but lucas and co is not an educated man. i can be more delicate when i criticize saying that he's
a when he talks about garage or the ukrainian president i don't call him names i'm just saying he's a not very educated man and i have evident. just to back it when he wore it someone would be francisco really award and cisco arena strolled around saying you just work you know. died welsh hundred and fifty years before the city was even founded what do we call a man who says such things and sort of says. the former president. well it. would be better off than you think it was being said stay with us we'll be back here in this room almost every minute.
a good hour killing machine fear or was it a call that face a crisis and that's never absent. mum mom a song from the school spoke to me i think of it every day. of the flyers fired from the memories slump i'm glad the song was so long tom is here trying to tell him. i was a shady. i was ashamed that i didn't. i was ashamed that i hadn't been a cure why. i got my way. i would go. forward i believe what i was going on once or i think. that i was a good soldier. but you know most soldier on the other side and i think i'm just in
the book. welcome back to spotlight time i'll bring up in just a reminder that my guests here on the show today is. the former leader the first president of the republic of belarus. mr scott of each will have already discussed the difficult economic situation that belarus is going to give over and the devaluation of the belorussian ruble what about the financial crisis and the
devaluation of the belorussian bruegel head the bottom yet so you need by no means all the experts agree that they should have to evaluate a belorussian herbal boy for more than fifty six percent of the prices keep growing of course they will through a couple of people in jail naturally they will blame it all on them it will interest the nation on television accusing them of all the hardships that people of bill aris have to endure it will all be a bundle of lies. but there are a lot of. people in russia who admired the go rushing it konami model. for that model use completely you see it when you make and i can prove it that you would have a good consider this was the russian ruble the end of the russian ruble both came from the soviet herbal. moreover we had a denomination to increase the roubles value by ten but today
a russian ruble is worth three hundred belorussian roubles this means delarue says currency has depreciated by you thousand times compared to the russian ruble and not just to solve your trouble. i also know that we didn't have a black tuesday which our economy never defaulted but it was a gradual depreciation which the patient people of belarus haven't cured how can we call an economy that slaughters its own currency like that a success i don't know where you find academics who are willing to praise that system. look at how it affected people's lives thanks to lucas sham co who's has one of the lowest life expectancy rates in europe. are statistics is completely distorted yes i was at that conference today and if you look at the official figures of the bill russian statistics to me they say that we are
flourishing our life is arrayed apparently and this is served by the media to the naive russian audience russian journalists who come to look at shinnecock to get present. information about how beautiful life in belarus is the euro's sake anti-crisis fund is going to run both three billion dollars do you think that will help the economy which will help but not for long the money will be used to sustain the repressive machine and cram down the opposition forces are stupid law enforcers are very well paid what you're. peons have already realized where the money goes so we won't see any money from them but if. your countrymen develop russians how are they reacting to the economic shock that the country is going through with it but if it will they're used to this sort of thing is i already told you billers is an imperfect state of shock our currency has depreciated by two thousand times was this in the papers you know at the what you do nothing of this is in the papers
people is right about lithuania for example and they tell us look they're only used in seventy percent of their cultivated land or is collective farms used all of it good at what they don't say you don't is that lethal when is able to cover all its needs using always seventy percent lethal wynnie it produces more green than ever if we don't have free media just tried speaking to a television drama less as we are talking now over media's monopolized semi-independent self censored newspapers ever circulation of fifty thousand a week and at the same time we get two million copies of the soviet a bill or is telling us that the president is a saint and we've never had a better leader and that we shouldn't look for anything better lickspittle riders will drive you mad well hillary is infected with the serve all mentality is people are actually no longer bill are russians their location because. well whatever you
call it servility or whatever the fact is that people are voting for a look which is no they're not most of them support nothing of the sort i say this time and again no civilized country has recognized these elections because votes were not counted the people simply can't imagine the scale of the fraud which we are talking about people in europe do you know what sort of letters bill or. it's rights to the european parliament. they say we have seen you used three measures to disperse demonstrations. but when we use water cannons and police batons against civilians you condemn our actions. that's another lie because the police was obviously just trying to beat people into submitting to this monster is a government that has been feeling office for sixteen years and look where it has
brought deloris i've heard that one of the reasons behind the opposition is defeat and the size of the dissent is tough measures of course is that none of the opposition candidates have so far forward a solid program best they could come up with was. better than this is entirely wrong here are confusing two things not presidential candidates who are united by common desire to change their political system is in order to do that they would have to get out of the way that was there a common goal aside from that their programs were completely different look at sunny coast program for example i was in his team and his program was great their primary objective is to change the political system this doesn't mean doing the same as look at this very cruel european is not quite what we could never reach up to europe the objective is to liberalize the economy we can't save the economy
without a free market the current polluter ships as free market can lead to anything and in a sense i agree surely yes a welfare state in which pillars easy according to the constitution that we do need if you grio for government control over the market how do you agree with the notion that location because regime can only be defeated if a single. and it is nominated by you all opposition parties no one work and no i can't agree with that but our strategy was right we had a single candidate who would be allowed very little air time and media attention when we had been on the other hand all agree that the political system needs to be changed and that was very good as a way to make noise but not to win but they did it with a good look at last in the six polling stations where they're both and was
monitored according to polls at other at polling stations he lost as well he could have collected thirty two percent of the most with the margin of error off seven or eight percent. the other seventy percent would still have to be split between uncounted itself which leads to a runoff and which only a new candidate can win with. sun in getting more and more media attention lately people started speculating that lucas shanklin might be trying to make him his successor. do you believe god sponsible. yeah well i know this boy's mother and i don't think he can be raised right to become a good president because he's essentially raised without a mother. so i don't believe in this theory it's focused because at the same time i'm sure he would like this to happen. yes but the last question
uprisings against all three tarion regimes seem to be the zeitgeist today this is taken into account events in north africa is this affecting those that are well you know those completely isolated and unaffected well what i think is this bill or has suffered heavier casualties in world war two than any other country for a thousand people and we lost more people than anybody due to. should be required and we had behaved casualties in the afghan war but perhaps it's time to stop using our systemin forder we will find it a peaceful way out of this situation with bush because this bigotry cannot continue although there is his loss of some people and we will find a way to revive our economy and make a competitive price about thank you very much for being with us in just three lines of that my guest on the show today was then slapped kidd which the first president
hungry for the full story we've got it first hand the biggest issues get a human voice face to face with the news makers on r t. they live not only next to the border of the gaza strip and egypt but also on the border of peace and war. they're responsible not only for themselves. but also for their loved ones and they are ready to take any risks. cause chaos.
