8:17 am
criminalizes the public expression of support for so-called nontraditional relationships russian lawmakers say that it doesn't outlaw homosexuality it merely discourages the discussion of it among people younger than eighteen now the law doesn't outlaw gay sex which was actually legalized in russia back in one thousand nine hundred three it also doesn't explicitly ban the participation in gay pride parades the problem however is that the defendant of propaganda is rather vague and it's based on intent so anyone who distributes information for example with the intention of persuading minors that nontraditional sexual relationships are attractive could be accused of breaking this law any individuals or organizations who are accused convicted of violating it face fines foreign citizens could potentially face up to fifteen days in prison deportation and denial of the entry into russia now almost activists believe that this law will not be widely enforced
8:18 am
there is concern that it effectively gives some local governments carte blanche to say to ban gay pride parades and to discourage people from discussing lesbian gay bisexual issues on the internet so that's the worry the thing to keep in mind however is that russian society is very traditional and conservative and there is in fact a lot of support for this legislation here domestically the independent center of polling center here in russia have actually found that seventy three percent of respondents support any government efforts to curb the homosexual propaganda in fact of these subjects and haven't really changed over the years it also found that four out of five russians say that they don't have a single lesbian or gay acquaintance so that is why there's been such a difference in for example the western and. national reaction versus the reaction right here in russia that's a perfect opportunity to sort of make political statements for whatever issue that comes up this is the the main sort of social hot button issue that's been raised

8:20 am
the country but the head of russia's a limping committee alexander also spoke out on this issue he said that russia will do its best to effectively keep the guests on the participants safe and comfortable that very mixed reaction internationally but russian officials are trying to encourage athletes to to feel comfortable and to of course participate in these upcoming sochi winter olympic games. and my colleague and his guys discussed what changed the law was introduced. we are an international community bonded by the homophobia that affects all of us and what we have to do is take a stand against the fact that the government is actually preventing education rather than propaganda that is desperately needed feel people who are growing up lesbian and gay growing up with prejudice this cause this day it causes distress anti gay bullying is terrific but it also is deep in issues because of the huge
8:21 am
fines it imposes an organization and individuals who even mention gay rights but i'm going i just you know i like you i constantly as a journalist hear us and see the sides but you know i constantly as a journalist here go on about gay rights in russia and i on this channel i've spoken various networks around the world about this i've not been penalized or find out or i'm just trying to keep people at home the reality of the situation here i posted on facebook or something i say no problem but you don't face for others to protest and as as basically a scouse journalist here i know the reality of life and i just wanted to put to stop the exterior you know it doesn't snow all around there's a simmering active thriving gay community in russia and indeed in sochi when i was filming the last week there was one that i just wanted to actually get my car on humble mature opinion regarding gay life in russia and i was nothing short of i was assassinated without rain water for having possibly you know you know pro you know
8:22 am
thoughts on russia which is seen as evil russia want to talk about it's a political commentator. there london as well as the recent levada poll recently saying that more than half of russian support the law and conservative traditions alexander your thoughts on that well i think first of all i've been asking some people here what is it exactly that british athletes are planing to do and sort your other going to. get lifestyles or are they going to compete they're actually in the games themselves look at me tell you something about believe the. the lord be here and the game will be as well we have that. none existed in debate about gay marriage same sex marriage the great was suppressed by the liberal elite nobody was allowed to say anything the moment you questioned you know whether it's a wise thing to do you were immediately accused of being called before i think it's done for the gay community to realize you cannot prevent the people for having
8:23 am
their own views and in london you know of what those who were in complete and total total doldrums by the by the liberal elites that know to love this political correctness has turned into censorship all of the countries and i think this gets forgotten have signed in a lympics charter which states that there is no kind of demonstration or political religious or racial propaganda allowed at any olympic sites venues or other areas is the l g b t community going to allow this olympics to become about gay rights and not about the olympics and also what about other minorities that feel like they need to have their say at the olympics how many protests are we going to see or we're going to have a gay pride protest and then a protest about western countries that want russia to intervene in syria and then another protest from the environmentalists they don't think the olympics should be held there at all everyone is going to want to have their say china is likely to overtake the u.s. as the world's largest crude oil importer they see according to

a report by the entry information association with millions of drivers thirty four fester for petrol and growing industrial production at beijing's liquid fuel in full cost to rise to over six million barrels per day was his case to pale ban has more now on the market reaction. well investors really it's a sigh of relief that we see you we had a metals rally on our hands at one point and it's not just oil that's making its way to china in record amounts but soybeans iron as well but the oil really demonstrates a change in dynamics is a global shift the u.s. has been the top or the consumer since the early ninety's father china is growing they need the oil for that they need it for their cars for their factories for the infrastructure but really aligned with this is what's going on in the u.s. domestically the shale gas boom they're far more self-sufficient than ever before so this could have a big impact you think on the global it is not really i think the people that are
8:25 am
set to benefit a rock especially that's where the most oil goes to more than half actually comes from iraq and the middle east in general but russia is also going to want to listen into this we know that russia wants to tap in being neighbors into this market just like china more attractive this data really but as well as that it's not just about economics is about politics as well with the oil market because it is such a to mulches region the oil producing countries and the maybe pressure on china now to be more vocal in what's going on there the u.s. perhaps more less inclined less motivated to be so going forward talking about responsibility also the emissions carbon emissions we know china isn't exactly admired for their eco ethe also be interesting to see if they follow in the footsteps of the likes of europe japan who are more conscious in this department or follow in their predecessor the u.s. and gas girls on the way. check whatever's happening around the world this hour

works with the blimp and a c one thirty military plane working in tandem you know this would actually be a major achievement in the history of technology if it actually worked this program which over the years has built up a billion taxpayer dollars simply does not work but continues to exist despite the cuban government completely blocking the transmission the fish. the logic of continued the program is that it would send a bad message to the cuban government if they stopped brilliance in action but the big question is who gives the us government the right to propagandize cubans just because they have a different lifestyle doesn't mean it is wrong and the us government does has the right to destroy it and even if cubans on mass actually do hate their system then it is their job to change cuba not the military industrial complex and its cronies in washington but that's just my opinion.
