riverport the number of flowers and cuddly toys and candles that are piling up against the walls of the river port here continues to grow as do the hundreds of people filing by looking at the lists of the dead and missing and paying their respects to those who lost their lives however there's also another feeling growing here was well as of grief and that sort of anger and questions increasingly growing as to the revelations that keep emerging about the ship just earlier here at the river port a former captain of that ship the bulgaria came and reveals some alarming details about the ship's life before its last voyage i'll just have a listen to what he said. i became captain of the vessel in two thousand and seven the ship had need for a while before that there were big problems with the engines and power generators repeatedly mention that to the management and even had an argument with them then
6:04 am
when i later returned from a cruise there was another captain waiting on the bank to replace me just. so as you can hear the debates go on about what actually happened to cause this sinking but it doesn't do anything to relieve the grief and the sorrow here on the riverbank the dog. this is the happy scene that short of the this ship is designed almost identically to the ball carrier in this room almost identical to the one that children on that ship played in but for whatever reason their fate was very different. the the the. the. crowds gathered in remembrance of those killed by the sinking of the volga pleasure boat it was the younger victims that seem to cast the longest shadow of.

husband managed to survive she and her son died. and for those children left suddenly without parents a terrible truth they may not be able to comprehend for years she lost her mother and father we're old but will have to look after her and she's only one and a half years. old knowledge what will you tell her and if we can't she wouldn't understand. there is much that people don't understand about this disaster reports about the ship's engines failing about blocked emergency exits and elektra city failure that stopped any s.o.s. or evacuation instructions going out criminal cases have been opened into why two ships passing straight after the sinking didn't stop to pick up a single person and into why the aging vessel was allowed to sail in the first place but for those who have lost loved ones the case will never be closed tom

advantage of post soviet business to see it through. reports u.s. missile defense plans in europe are of course out for discussion here in washington foreign minister lavrov said russia for illegally binding guarantees that the european missile defense project will not threaten russia's security there have been words before washington has many times said that the system would not be against russia but moscow needs to have it on paper some analyst explained that this urge that russia has been getting everything on paper with promises in the past that were not fulfilled for example when the soviet union collapsed russia was assured that nato would not be expanding towards these borders but he did continue its continued recruiting new members so the bottom line is words are good but words in a legally binding agreement are that our foreign minister lavrov said that's probably the most irritating issue in the relations between the two countries and there is a huge desire to leave it behind and to rather turn it into an area of population fix on the ground that being true that the basis of
6:09 am
a miracle should the design of missile defense which was not. that is a reasonable way to respond to what is received as being the purpose of the system so we want to stick to the original that there would be no parts of the system which would create risks for the strategic stability and for the but. strategic stability here in the industry the age of course and also of the participants in the system russia has offered building the missile shield in europe together but that offer was turned down nato says russia can participate but it can't be a joint project because russia is not part of nato so that moscow says if that's the case let's base our relations on agreements not just words the shield itself according to the state department will have the whole of europe coverage my colleague alex a euro he went through romania when the u.s. plans to build the radar and found out what he for the local population take

6:11 am
by the chinese similar plans were no joke for some in other european countries. thousands in the czech republic and poland protested against the initiative to have military bases on their soil with mixed results while the first line of interceptor missiles was eventually placed in poland the czechs suddenly pulled out of it and on the solid defense in romania there have been no demonstrations like that at all there is a historical fact and it makes several men now one of the most cruel american countries in the world there is this sentiment and this feeling that. the presence of the us is contra balance and specifically the u.s. is confidence in the presence or influenced of russia in the region if there is the real case then what security would this new shield provide and most importantly difference from who. it is unclear what

from coercion and right to break and the defense team has said that there is nothing in the victim's statement that said that in the evidence so a lack of consent in the statements of three of the poor allegations they say wouldn't even amounts to crimes in the u.k. so it's very much the approach that that's taking hold they they are drawing attention to the fact that us almost has not been charged in sweden that he's once of them maybe for questioning and they're saying has the prosecution started has he actually been accused of anything and if not then the european arrest warrant is in we may be able to expect a good day at the end of wednesday but we may know the judge may refer the decision to another day he may put his off and give decision a few days or even a few weeks time we're hearing. reports or you could order a far more from also you want to do. the latest news blogs and expert analysis but here are some of the stories are online for you right now how it world famous
