friday morning december the first here in moscow thanks for joining us this is. the french president has tabled a new plan for preventing human trafficking in libya and it involves military action has been widely criticized especially in light of the french led western military intervention in libya that left the country in ruins as much explains. slavery and human trafficking of vile offenses sadly common now in libya but no need to fear president macron is here he has the solution for libya's problem send in the troops it's
a necessity zone we are proposing police military action we are not waging war but this is a country in a political transition political transition he calls it does sound better than as savage civil war more politically correct nevertheless a number of african and e.u. states are ready to help fight this war or rather not really a war says micron but a military operation still round two for france in libya. today we're intervening in libya we are intervening in order to enable the libyan people to choose their own destiny it must not be deprived of its rights by violence and terror the fact that slavery is so rampant in libya is because the country's army and political order were obliterated under nato bombardment six years ago since then libya has been stuck in a brutal and bloody political transition as president macro calls it or
absolute chaos and anarchy as anyone out call it as long as it is a failed state the problem will come back as a failed state because the regime of cut off the top was not a mass regime nobody says that was destroyed by it by the french and the british together in two thousand and eleven so of course michael can do something now but it will be it will reoccur. africa is the region where the problem of modern slavery is worst asia and the pacific region coming in second place with central asia and europe third now talking all over europe france itself has become a key human trafficking that's at least according to a new report from the u.s. state department it lists the country as a destination and transit point for men women and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking and we spoke to the vice president of the libyan
presidential council and i asked him about a new military idea. we. can be happy but no. we cannot accept anything. to be done with our present libyan libyans who would be the one who'll do this. with the help of support of the government. well the right way to help them. do the right investment on that country for sure libya is not the country for us to make that libya is a country or run we as a libyan have already impressed on africa and we want to see anybody talk of it we're going to first with the country of origin and we're going to be similar to you to stay with the loved ones with your families. it is the day of the final draw for football's twenty eighteen feet for world cup and we'll be bringing
you coverage from our special studio in the very heart of the russian capital here's artie's neil harvey and his very special co-host. hello and welcome to our studio right in the heart of moscow where we are just hours away now from the draw for the faithful world cup finals that is when the thirty two remaining teams will merge who they'll face in the group stage next summer storm and that's a big draw it's a big deal and we decided it's more than a one man job so r.t. has brought in somebody to help me out can you guess who it is if i tell you that this is a player who played one hundred twenty nine times internationally and he scored one goal would you say yet i can't repeat on that what if i then told you he's a goalkeeper that's more impressive isn't it and what if i said that he won a champions league and a european championship now i've got your interest i am very pleased to announce
that joining me throughout the world cup coverage on r.t. is going to. the great than yourself peter schmeichel is such a pleasure to have you with us and i'm not too embarrassed to say that in my opinion the best goalkeeper i ever saw played again the american new brush. in the cold of moscow but even so it is to check it out and it is so great to have you with us and i want to talk about that goal because you must afford your friends of fans tears with that you scored a goal is a keeper and i think i can bore you with a row with pride frankly it was a penalty in the frank. against belgium city had to score. a goal is a goal great to have you with us let's look forward to. because we've got more than just the goalkeeper on both of the strikers well thank ali moore took a sneak peek behind the scenes ahead of the draw which is going to take place at state coming palace just behind us. welcome to the media center here at the kremlin and heads of the free for well put
through on friday as you can see people having their photos taken with the famous trophy which will be given out at the luzhniki stadium in she launched here to the windows of this most famous tournament playing the most who cheats on. you call that piece is the official free for the world cup full of money to get my hands on them before going out without at least a title for it there's the logo there's the sponsor i didas this is going to be what's kicking off the will cope in the mission if you study moscow right the way through to the end in the middle of july also one cannot light. rather just but it's going to draw a whole different from local drool on friday he's going to be one of the first to get. to. that as you can hear over my shoulder there drool behind the scenes has already started going to keep it nice and simple for you there all thirty two nations divided into four parts of my team in the spotlight on all the house russia and they include the top seven ranked teams on the planet so russia
joined five times whereas brazil so well chad. germany christiane over now though in portugal the european champions you know messi and argentina belgium courses to win it france to nine hundred ninety eight champions i'm finally poland you. can see you can fly by comment from around the world they are very excited as we are going to have some special guests and also you through the day so keep it on c on espanyol arabic and english and who will finally brazil argentina england in the house russia get supply at the free for world cup next year we'll find out. and. russia's hosted this big event a lot of pressure on the organizers and on the team itself what is that like what i
think this is this is probably one of the biggest challenges that russia will ever face one thing is the whole organization. you know just by being here you kind of sense that everything is under control the other thing is being a player in the team having to represent your own country in a world cup that that that you host that's a completely different you know the fish extra pressure it's extra pressure and i met a couple of guys. who's actually been in that situation both of them played in the world cup winning team in france back in one thousand nine hundred eighty france with the host and they know exactly what is going to be like to be a player for russia. could you see the favorites to win a brazil result definitely with germany germany because they've sure great ability
great skill with their second team during the confederation cup and brazil because if all together at the same time diminishing or to play well they have individual players who can make the difference but at the same time collectively they are very tough and disciplined. brazil and germany and spain and maybe your friends is. someone that we don't look at too often that you can say way they can do really good. looking after creation or maybe you never know sweden of surprise everyone you know on the. t.v. without having any individual players but they made it maybe didn't the mask was waiting to be good so. we have a good play here we've got love distance i love i love that could be one of the big
stars. for me a name because the one you want. and could be. missing. and cousineau and i go we want we want someone else is the only one what they should be that can you know shine you know behind the cellar and i'll go and macy so we hold neymar and but big loser french guy for france for germany for brazil for every team in the court one maybe you don't take to spain because we should take spain he was a group very very nigeria we have iran there are teams that you deem that might be quite easy to play against them but to me geria is a good team there is a very good costa rica is a very. severe team because. obviously
the big name players are the center of the attention he can do without the fans you know this and there are eleven particularly enthusiastic guests who are becoming to tonight's big event i'm talking about the call them the super fans i think the lucky fans there eleven forty fans have been chosen in different cities right across russia all because of their passion for the beautiful game and it's clear from looking at their ages so you can love football however. the youngest super fan is just sex. why the oldest one twelve times his age. kampen a man put. on him. yeah yeah. the voice. i mean.
yes it goes i really have to figure. it out. now the world will offer the chance for a lot of football fans to come visit russia for the very first time. general. kohli more about russia experience i really was fascinated by the level of local authorities and more importantly by the woman welcome there what pleased you the most from the russian welcoming in the summer for the confederations cup because i was here and one of my roles i believe. to speak honestly about whatever country i broadcast and i've been here six or seven times now
another fantastic time people don't look at me differently on the street people don't treat me differently. which is against some of the stereotypes that we are presented with but when exactly what you just described when i came for the first time in russia it was in july last year. one month after my assignment and definitely like every african. president i will. just feeling to be treated differently and i was ready to help people think differently about africa and africans but as we speak i've been here for at least twenty times and together i haven't suffered any issues so with just over six months to go until the world cup russia is getting its stadiums ready for action and many of them though have already been tested out of course at last summer's confederations cup and a lot of fans who traveled here for that tournament they've told us they had such
a great time and they will definitely be back in two thousand and eighteen. when we when so much mexico russia we thought maybe they were like going to have even one match completely obvious they were still playing really friendly russian people are friendly friendly just easy to meet. either for them and we would come back from work. maybe it would make.
working at the confederations cup and i can testify to that the fans the really did love it and a lot of i'm going to it's a long journey it's expensive a lot of them are coming but let's get to the draw that's what we're really here for just a few hours to go now and as i understand you actually take a polity in one of these things so i've experienced different levels obviously being a player you're waiting for the draw you know you're excited about who you're going to get we're going to play against. and two of the euro straws as well but i actually picked out the poles and i posted the choice and the old exciting in every way the thing about being a player so when you qualify obviously you don't think about you going to play. the next time you kind of think about what's going to happen is what the seedings when the parts are actually being announced and you can see who you can actually kind of sort of finding your way through who do you want who do you not want and then obviously when the job comes around it becomes probably the most exciting part of
the sort of pretty well call. and then it's not really who you really want it's who you know and so voyde yeah absolutely so you know the draw is really really it's exciting because it's such a big part of what's going to happen in the summer you. probably don't want to face that very exciting everyone's got their own opinion a matter of hours now until the draw gets underway he will be all seen get the seventy six pm moscow time do you stay with. myself for all the build up.
most people think to stand out in this business you need to be the first one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest race. to stand as you just need to ask the right questions and demand the right answer. question. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the us actually it's. the only show i go out of my way to. really pack the. john oliver of americans do the same we are apparently better than. the
c. people you've never heard of. jack to the next president of the world bank. seriously send us an e-mail. nine twenty am here in the russian capital a new poll conducted in the united states has revealed that an overwhelming majority of the country's millennial olds want a third political party a correspondent caleb maupin spoke to young people in the streets of new york to find out why. in the usa it's democrats and republicans it's always been that way a two party system now some people might think that makes the country more stable but millennial seem to have a different perspective let's break down the millennial case against the two party system now sixty five percent of say that the country is moving in the wrong direction and seventy one percent of them say that they're ready for a new third political party but wanting to see
a new political player in washington is nothing new according to the figures provided by gallup the number of americans who favor a third party has been increasing over the course of the last five years in two thousand and twelve it was only forty six percent but in two thousand and sixteen it was up to fifty seven percent now you rarely hear about it but third parties have actually been around in american politics since the nineteenth century now why is it that in all these years an independent political faction has never been able to take the white house well maybe it has something to do with the fact that mainstream media is working overtime to keep people marching behind the elephant and the donkey don't waste your vote on a third party candidate especially with its would miss harding the democratic standard bearer and you get someone who is the opposite of what you want and let out a third part of who we now know that third party candidates out there are very much not qualified you've got your experience or through knowledge now amid the growing disillusionment with the two major parties let's see if americans would really prefer
a third option do you feel that the establishment parties represent your values i feel that they are to align like different things so i feel very independent of any . support for any party nominee depending so. i think both sides are have valid. and valid thing to say in both sides stink sometimes not really honest i'm kind of further to the left than the democratic party has room for and there's nothing on the right for me if a viable third party emerged that was closer to your values would you support it. yeah i would i make sense but i know it's very hard for those type of parties to get out there you know i would consider voting for a third part of the represent my value is. i would if i had a chance some people say if you vote for a third party you're throwing your vote away do you agree with them unfortunately the system has been rigged to such that it ends up being a wasted vote like it shouldn't be and that's wrong i do think the way it's
structured right now but i'll be you know local elections being on exception i think you are kind of throwing it away no i want to say that but i can see why some people see it that way expression when people say like i don't like bernie sanders losing a bernie sanders running is why he could last for someone but i don't think anyone who voted for them is a loss now is used in america grow alienated from the two major parties the question remains what new political grouping could fulfill the needs of the younger generation mop and artsy new york. the passion of a cattle on independence apparently having cooled off madrid is taking precautions to ensure things stay that way the spanish government has introduced an unusual and boss alone a targeting the city's fountains. bring me down to yellow because it means freedom for all political prisoners it is the
color of freedom. it seems silly to me because yellow is just a normal color i think it's a desperate campaign by politicians trying to stop the independence movement. is complete nonsense. it's pointless everybody has already decided how they really want i'm twenty five and that won't change based on yellow or another color. yellow but another color could be used that's just absurd. with relations between america and russia hitting global headlines almost weekly three time oscar winning filmmaker all of us stone has shared his views on ties
between the two nations with artie's sophie shevardnadze a star in the latest documentary series which was aired earlier this year gave an insight into vladimir putin's personal and professional life with no topic off limits his new book which she was in moscow to promote talks about his meetings with the russian president putin's rise to power and global relations. i am a person who has researched russia a bit i know a bit about it i've been to russia many times actually since one thousand came here for the first time to interview dissidents i was working on a movie in one thousand nine hundred two called the defiance and it was about the dissidents who were coming out of the psychiatric clinics but i try to stick to what i feel is the truth and i don't take i didn't say one false word to mr p. at all i didn't say what i meant when i said it when i said to him and one of the i think one of the first things i said was it strikes me that you're the son of
russia as you know i pushed him but whatever people say i pushed him and certainly i could feel his irritation when i was pushing him hard on the democracy question on this the question of his succession and what's going to happen next year. thanks for joining us here on international your friday worldwide news headlines continue.
first. we have. something in america something. all these banks are complicit in. ok let's see how we did. as for max and for stacy oh beautiful jewelry how about fuck on luxury automobile again for a match you know what money laundering highways. watch kaiser of course. i was born and grew up with how it was my home for twenty five years the firewood the four easy to hold it all well. now that was the most heartbreaking thing i've ever seen in my life it was sight it was beyond traumatic you know we will felt by the state before and often a fire. changed everything we talk politics now and how we can take power.
if we continue to stand a make believe. we can change this community. we need to realize that collectively we. will prolong we real real power to shape our destiny and to be authors of the public so we need things these opportunities and moving as much as. washington d.c. faces a december day mood taxes government funding immigration are just some of the hurdles the u.s. government must jump into before the end of the month we'll take
a look at this and more on this edition. of the politicking on larry king donald trump and republican lawmakers face enormous pressure for some kind of legislative achievement this year december holds a jam packed agenda for congress including tax reform a government funding debate to avoid a christmas time shutdown and a renewed fight over the fate of hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants who's likely to win who lose what happens have nothing makes it over the legislative finish line we're going to talk about it with robin by road democratic strategist former obama campaign field director and a u.s. army ranger vet he joins us from atlanta and lanny ten research fellow at stanford's hoover institution he said in the george w.
bush administration and was an adviser to the presidential campaigns of marco rubio and mitt romney and he joins us from the campus at stanford let's start with the tax bill from you to. do some major differences between the house and the senate you think we're going to get a bill by the end of december. larry i do think there will be a strong push whether they actually get it by the end of december if it slips into twenty eighteen we'll have to see but i do think that republicans are committed to getting something out they of course cross the first hurdle this week with a vote in the budget committee on the senate side so i do have confidence that they will be a tax bill now whether it's going to look more like the senate version of the house version that remains to be seen but certainly i think the political and the policy momentum is there why robin is the end of december soon porton so what happens if the tensions in january well donald trump trying to give everybody
a little christmas present but what they what they feel to realize though is that he keeps turning this as the the big cut for the middle class so what they don't know is that this christmas gift will be very small by my calculation about eleven hundred dollars is what they'll save on their federal taxes but those of us like myself who itemize and do ten thousand nine s. are going to get the shaft and where if you this bill is great if you don't own anything but if you own property it itemize this bill is really not going to be good for you so i know that it's important for him that he delivers because they've had no measure the major legislative wins they need to give something back they promised and promised and promised to their constituents they've blocked on obamacare they need to get something done and i think that we will see something but like i said i think it's going to fall short of what he's promised on the campaign trail larry one of the republican support so the plan money has to do is
