the french presidency manuma cruel calls for military action against human traffickers in libya despite the chaos caused by the last intervention there. it's the day of the draw for the twenty eighteen feet for world cup we'll bring you all the latest from a special studio by the kremlin. is right about now there are thirty two managers there are thirty two squads of players and there are millions of fans from each of those particular countries all nervously waiting to find out who their side will play next year we got a month and call it all down on the red carpet he's talking to v.i.p.'s lots of buildup lots of interest but more in a few minutes. i'm kate partridge and you're watching the latest headlines here at r.t.
international on an historic day for football fans thank you for joining us. french president in my new micro has tabled a new plan to combat human trafficking in libya involving military action but his plans have been widely criticized as the previous a french led intervention in libya left the country in ruins as what i'd guessed if explains. slavery and human trafficking of violent friends is sadly common now in libya but no need to fear president macro is here he has the solution for libya's problem send in the troops it's an initiative we're 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 a 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 calls it or absolute chaos and anarchy as any one out call it as long as it is a failed state the problem will come back as a failed state because the regime of got off the top was not
a minus regime but he says that was destroyed by the french and the british together in two thousand and eleven so of course michael can do something now put it full reoccur well the problem of modern slavery is worst in africa well that's followed by asia and the pacific region with central asia and europe third while france itself has become a key human trafficking hub that's at least according to a report from the u.s. state department it lists the country as a destination an transit point for men women and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking or we spoke to the vice president of the libyan presidential council and asked him about macros military plans. we. guarantee that but no. we cannot accept anything. to be done with our prison if it be and libyans should be the ones who do this action with the
help of the lord to come up. with the right way to help them. to create the right investment on that country for asian libya it's not the country of origin a democratic libya is a country or run we as a libyan have already impressed on africa and we want to see anybody talk of never going to prison but the country of origin and to help these immigrants to stay with their loved ones with you. now a new poll conducted in the u.s. has revealed an overwhelming majority of the country's millennial want a surge political policy aussies kaleb open aspire to see young people on the streets of new york to find out why. in the us today 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 so you can understand the all human going to throw a party kind of that can put a new issue or new solution on the table but it is hard to make the case the bodies what's happening here and let out of their 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 they are to align like different things so i feel very independent of any. support for any party nominee depending. i think both sides are have valid. 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 party they represent my value is. i would if i had a chance yeah 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 albeit 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 lost now as youth in america grow alienated from the two major parties the question remains what new political grouping could fulfill the needs of the younger generation cable mopp and artsy new york. now in a little under two hours the troll for the twenty eighteen feet for wild couple gets underway all eyes will be on moscow's state kremlin palace where the events taking place.
hello and welcome back to our studio in central moscow it's going to be now just a couple of hours away from the draw for the twenty eight sci fi for world cup finals so they've been battling it out the qualification period it's been going on for years you know the last thirty two teams and they're going to nervously wait now to find out who they will face and also where that's important cities around russia they're going to be playing in the group stages for these twenty we're going to be crossing our shortly our striker in the same stan collymore now he's moved to the red carpet in the palace that's where the draw is going to be taking place and he's going to be chatting to a few v i p's that remember thirty two teams so it's. eight first ranked
teams in the first part then another so basically four pots of eight they'll be moving into eight groups of four if you can follow that or get that in a moment now throughout the preparations some of the greats of the beautiful game they've been coming to moscow to try to find out what all the fuss is about and what russia is really like earlier i caught up with the wall to dig gregorio he's the first former communications director about his expat speculations for the tournament and also who he thinks will be the champions. you must have been to a few world cups in your in your time what have you made of russia's preparations. although it would reduce the time in order the problems we had for the last world cup in brazil was always the stadiums were not sure. but i think for you for the because issue because of the stadiums or the ready it's hard to play well i think in russia. don't plan on that's good unless it is what we've been hearing consistently that the stadiums are pretty much one of the
biggest things going further than that johnny in frontino is said today in his opinion this is quite a bold thing to say at this stage he thinks that this could be the best we'll ever know i mean that's promising a lot why would he do that you know. every every world cup is always the best because it's. so stupid if your job actually actually positive spin i think it's always been you cannot compare the world cups and all of the world cup in brazil is different and it will be in the in russia and in qatar will be another world cup so i think. to compare is difficult it's like comparing eriksson potatoes but it will be an amazing experience for everybody and i think it will be the wall that little pms the small teams that's what i think we're hearing it is significant isn't it because russia hasn't had a world cup before so it will have different feel that different culture personality yes i think a lot of people russia is an unknown black box and so in
a positive way they really want to combine other wonderful football at least world what i hear and when i talk to people they really want to use this as a paternity to see something more than just football they want to go beyond football and just experience a culture of life you're in russia. he will you be rooting for today's draw i don't know i think you can join nationality swifts actually you know that's that's the difficult question. it means that i can be absolutely relaxed to. my dutch friends and by the word the us you know they can just enjoy and see because we're not here but i have also a swiss past yes and i think switzerland belgium as the tiny kernel for. pms i think this is the moment i don't know why but i think seeing the games of these you know the pressure always will be with the big nations brazil
argentina germany of course and so it's a thing about the whole how good you are mentally on the earth i've seen a lot of games with the so-called small teams pretty good. by then in his case back in the studios as we wait for our intrepid form a striker stan collymore what do you actually like where you're standing i can see that it's pretty cold there down in red square is anybody else are they sort of congregating in the square waiting to see what happens or was it all pretty quiet so far. in the end you know it's very windy where you are can you hear me. now or just just where we were just while we wait just while we're waiting for anyone to get the connection in the meantime as they say our former striker stan
collymore went backstage at the current state palace this is what he found out. welcome to reduce it here at the kremlin and heads of the faithful will draw on friday as you can say people having their photos taken with the famous trophy which will be given out at the luzhniki stadium in july next year to witness the smallest famous tournament for most who choose to. call that piece is the official free for the world cup full of money to get my hands on them it's a free for going out that it wants to make there's the logo. this is going to be what's kicking off the world coke 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 drool on friday he's going to be one of the first to get in . that as you can hear over my shoulder there drool behind the scenes
it's already started and got to make. both very well known of course to also in the stan collymore show will break through proceedings going to keep it nice and simple for you they're all thirty two nations divided into four parts of my team sport russia and include the top seven ranked trains on the planet so russia joined five china as well as brazil the world champions germany christiane over now though in portugal the european champions you know messi and argentina belgium the job course is to win it's france the nine hundred ninety eight champions and finally poland she. can sit in flanked by cameraman from around the world they are very excited as we all were going to have some special guests and also through the day so keeping all c. on espanyol arabic and english and who will following the way brazil argentina england in the house russia get supply at the free fall cup next year we'll find
out. so first of all my apologies to k. i believe you are trying to ask me a question earlier in italy ago and he. couldn't say and it's causing similar problems because all striker folks in the box think all the worries down on the red carpet we're having trouble getting communication with him but we will sort it out to get the shovels working and dig out the snow get these going what i can tell you is some of the other people have come v.i.p.'s of a different kind not play is all big celebrities but but i actually found eleven particularly enthusiastic guests they will be at this evening's big event super funds eleven lucky football fans they've been chosen in different cities right across russia all because of their passion for the beautiful game and it's clear if you take a look at them it's very easy to love football no matter how old you are the youngest son just six the oldest twelve times older.
champion we have. more i am. yeah yeah. the boers. i mean. our kids. in the time with their good. pretty. girls a really. strong. around. for money. so it's about an hour forty five minutes now until that roll gets underway who your team got it really is in for this with shane in fourth ceremony kicks off
a six pm moscow time will bring you more celeb v i think interviews and we'll be hearing from all star players as well next out. everything today is about the individuals who it's so nice to be a little bit different and it's all about the team and i think it's. it's a quality that i studied football players have maybe because we come from an amateur the environment so we know that the the all the nations have better individuals and more individual qualities that we have so we have to be
collectively better than the others. one else seemed wrong why don't we all just don't hold. any world yet to shape our disdain comes to advocate and in games from an equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. i. welcome back three time oscar winning director oliver stone has been sharing his views with r.t. on relations between america and russia stone's latest documentary series ed
earlier this year gave a unique insight into vladimir putin's personal and professional life where stone's new book which he's been in moscow to promote still's with 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 would know a bit about it i've been to russia many times actually since one thousand i came here for the first time to interview dissidents i was working on a movie in one nine hundred eighty 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 were true mr p. at all i didn't say what i meant when i said it when i said to him one of the i think one of the first things i said was it strikes me that you're this you're a son of russia as you know i pushed 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 question of his succession and what's going to happen next year. now major all produces around the world have extended a deal to cut production in an effort to rebalance the market they will reduce our person until the end of next year when the decision follows talks between russia and opec members in vienna on the town supplies will be cuts by one point eight million barrels a day the deal was struck a year ago and was initially to expiring well says the cuts began the benchmark crude price known as brant has risen thirty percent to around sixteen dollars a barrel. well by the market was widely expecting the move opec will examine
progress next june and energy expert told us that's because the cuts have put oil importing countries on edge that's good agreements and the green line or the green area between the both can operate countries allowed to get some alarms through that's economy it's to just to be compatible and flexible in the same time and restrict it to the other side that there is some waiting and observation while. from importing countries for oil and these countries are still the are scared i'm afraid that prices coming tremendously raised opera over eighty dollars before the made of two thousand and thirteen and this will be an issue for their economies in the same. madrid is taking precautions to ensure the apparent cooling of passions over cattle on independence continues the spanish government has introduced an unusual ban in barcelona targeting the city's
firm tins. brito pull over to balance yellow because it means freedom for all political prisoners it is the color of freedom. does seem 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 and video is complete nonsense. it's pointless everybody has already decided how they really weren't on twenty first and that one changed a scene yellow or another color i mean you know you know they burned yellow but another color could be used that's just absurd.

welcome to sophie and co and sophie shevardnadze today moscow welcomes to draw for the thief a twenty eighteen world cup with the lucky teams already looking forward to the group stage one of the debutantes of the competition iceland has already won the hearts of fans to waldo for at they twenty six and heroes and it's manager a mere hall grimson is my guest today. the first time in history iceland speedboats e is bring in the viking spirit to the future of the world cup being the smallest
of the nations and bright for sports i'm a price what's different iceland's meteoric rise from food balls punching bags to fear giant killer is the underdog just a passing fad or are we about to see the birth of a new food bowl superpower on the world stage. him your whole grimson welcome to the show it's a pleasure to have you on our program now this is going to be iceland's first ever world cup are you going to pull off another app sat on progress ause of the group stage or even further when after year or it seems like anything is possible for iceland. if course. to do well. we have to be in russia lake lake everyone else and we've done quite a lot of good results so why not in the world cup finals we least hope so but we're also realistic that we can have fantastic games but but still lose against the.
nations normally in the world cup final so we are realistic but ice on this are normally really optimistic so how optimistic are you i mean what is your goal to what to win reach semi finals quarter finals well to begin with of course it's a great honor just to be there if we progress from the group stage i think that is a big achievement for for iceland but we know from the past from unlike past five six years that if we have all best games we can beat anyone. but. i think it's healthy to dream to hold the world cup. in our hands but of course it's. statistically probably not likely we're going to win it but. like i said before we have we're optimistic and we don't know yet more teams we
played against or what nations we are playing against so we haven't set any any goetia but of course we go in there to to progress from the group stage and from there it's champion it is like a cup. so if we have a good game we can we can we never want to limit now only play in the cup but now your team iceland has all this international experience facing top teams so if you could choose which countries do you want to get and which ones do you want to avoid in a world cup. i don't think there's an easy team in the world cup final so . my opinion is we don't actually mind who we get we know we're going to get strong teams i don't think for ice on this team that we should win. but hopefully you know the best teams in the world you can't avoid them because they are in group one. so yeah we're always going to have
a team that's really really really difficult to beat in from from. group one and group two so. i don't mind which team we get we just we accept what we get so you have this big breakthrough right iceland isn't an underdog anymore either what he has seen what the team is capable off isn't going to be a lot harder this time around i mean do you feel the pressure now that you've sat you know sort of the limit that you can be really good. no the pressure is more or less from our selfs. that has been. been in a group. all the games were tough. teams play a little bit different against us from the days in the past so we just prepare for everything. and yeah we have.
