8:01 am
but asked for what he did last saturday burned down raster on so and so on i think this is a necessary measure i think they're bringing in the army as a way of responding to the crisis three it's not a solution to the problem. hello there is three pm here in moscow you're watching r.t. international now the u.s. special counsel robert muller has submitted his long awaited report on alleged russian involvement in the twenty sixteen us presidential election the count of confidential documents was handed to the justice department which says miller has not recommended any new indictments from new york with the latest his. report has been submitted the final report from bob muller the special counsel appointed two years ago to look into allegations that donald trump had colluded
8:02 am
with russia during the two thousand and sixteen elections and at this point no further indictments are being called for we're hearing from the white house which has spoken up and said the next steps are up to attorney general barr and we look forward to the process taking its course white house has not seen the report does not know what it contains it was simply submitted to the department of justice has long maintained there was nothing for special counsel robert mueller to find he's stood firm in saying that there was nothing to the allegations made against him let it come out let people see it that's up to the attorney general we have a very good attorney general he's a very highly respected and we'll see what happens is no collusion there was no collusion there was no obstruction there was no nothing it appears that this bob moeller report is a bit of a failure it hasn't turned up any big indictments related to russia collusion it's been two years long but we've already heard democratic party leaders talking about other options they have for keeping the scandal these scandalous allegations
8:03 am
related to trump and russia alive now adam schiff a democrat in congress recently floated this idea for keeping the story going i said he agreed that the counterintelligence investigation may be more important than the criminal investigation because it goes to present threat to our national security whether the president and anybody around him a compromised by foreign power there's been many occasions in which the u.s. public was told that some kind of bombshell or groundbreaking revelation was about to be revealed but it seems that the two years the report has finally concluded and people are waiting to see what is made public from that report after the u.s. attorney general makes that decision come up in reporting what often burra the u.s. presidential hopeful for the libertarian party says it is the democrats who benefit the most from the moon upright. what we've seen so far has been basically a joke this whole thing was supposed to fire into russia russian called lucian and
8:04 am
so far all the indictments all the guilty pleas that there have been guilty pleas and all the people found guilty in court have been found guilty of things better other than russian collusion this was supposed to be a big whole thing that was going to under under uncover some connection between trump and russia and it turns out to be just a bunch of petty usual nonsense just normal politics this is not russia inclusion this is a waste of time effort and energy so i expected or democrats will drag this out as much as they possibly can not because they think there's anything to be found but because they know that this trial this kind of circus is helping to energize the democratic base helping them to say look trump is really bad for these reasons. in other news the syrian democratic forces have declared final victory over islamic state after capturing the terror groups last pocket of resistance in the country. from here we announced the end of the campaign all areas including the camp were
8:05 am
liberated after islamic states were eliminated from the face of the earth the u.s. backed kurdish forces began an offensive in the syrian town of but guus in the beginning of march since then hundreds of iceland fighters along with their families have surrendered and have been positioned in the al hole refugee camp near by the announcement by the group does echo those that have been made by donald trump before he said multiple times that i saw is gone and promised to be true or troops from the country. we have one good study says we've beaten them and we know now we've won it's time to come back we just took over you know you kept hearing was ninety percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria now it's one hundred percent we just took over the knock at the hell out of isis will become another syria like very soon where we discuss the latest developments with middle east expert and i will catch you does say though it is premature to talk advice almost
8:06 am
total defeat that's not the end of the fighters the fighters we there are reports that they have been moved elsewhere. and these are the state we need always to remember that it is not the only. talks or extremist islamic. faction that he's operating on syria or iraq it is also al-qaeda affiliated groups that are making it live and so on and so forth what we know for sure is that it's not the sleeper cells that but he's keeping the americans inside syria it's to gain as much influence in that area that's the main reason why they want to keep troops rather than that i should be purcell's. the nineteenth weekend of yellow vests rallies is underway across france though the authorities have banned marches in certain areas the french military to is authorized soldiers to open fire during marches should lives be put in danger by rioters were central nice is one of the
8:07 am
areas where rallies have been banned but yellow vests turned up anyway to parts of paris. also out of balance to the hi vis protesters so far a violation has been reported in the capital but hundreds are marching through paris along the loud route artie's medina corps jennifer reports now from paris. another week and the other protests but this time opening fire at crowds is apparently an option seeing you do so you order the soldiers a strictly set out extremely precise they have different modes of action to face or threat so you could go as far as opening fire if they're all someone else's life is a threat this saturday over five thousand armed soldiers will be in the streets parisians are divided over the prospect with some calling it catastrophic i think this is an extreme measure obviously this will not solve everything but at least it will help to avoid further destruction don't know i don't think anything good will
8:08 am
come of the government's decision to use the army's they've asked for what they did last saturday did burn down restaurants and so on i think this is a necessary measure so. it's not the army's mission and shows the failure of the government and the failure of our petition is. done i think if the army opens fire it will prove that crisis management was not sufficient so i think that bringing in the army as a way of responding to the crisis but it's not a solution to the problem the politicians from across the political spectrum have reacted with anger to this latest measure it's a serious mistake imagine them standing in front of the national assembly or the elysee palace and holders descend on bam what happens then will they be fired on will people be killed in thirty seventeen emanuel mccrone promised to appease friends in two hundred nineteen he suggests that the military could shoot at demonstrators mechanism is fracturing france and sending it into their business
8:09 am
just at first she wants you michael this time you have gone too far mr macro you have to know how not to push the entire country into a settling of schools it's time to return to more proportional methods the whole world would be horrified to learn that here in france we're using the same methods that we condemn when they are used in other countries. in addition to putting soldiers on the streets in order to prevent another wave of violence the french president has decided to close several i cannae klug marks including this famous avenue. on saturday anyone protesting here will face a fine to up to one hundred thirty five euros these announcements not the result of powerlessness but rather a public order response to this precise reality a hold of who is seems to be thing up security on the streets is the only solution to this crisis that i am a crown can see and he is now turning his attention to other challenges i believe
8:10 am
that when anyone brings their domestic problems or divisions to the european council it is a waste of time and i don't have time to waste. the nineteenth we can't of protesters now here at the french capital is braised for a fresh outpouring of anger and the protestors have adopted the slogan the war has been declared. a petition calling for brics it to be can sort has now reached over four million signatures since wednesday setting a record for the parliament website it does come amid increasing uncertainty over the future of the u.k.'s divorce from the u. on thursday the british prime minister to resign may was in brussels to negotiate an extension to the withdrawal deadline leaders agreed to a two week delay until may the twenty second if passed as her twice rejected deal if not she will have only until april the twelve proposed new plan however the prime minister has no said that another vote might not take place next week is

expected breaks it into further disarray or when all the twists and turns his party boy. remember that simpsons episode where bart keeps touching the electrified cupcake. it all looks a bit like series amazing attempts to get her bread as it deals through parliament the woman tasked with leading the country at its greatest hours since world war two hasn't got many people to defend her it's just going oh no no no no no she is the roadblock to this house reaching majority when will she develop and stand down to do was. to disaster week reach. britain's departure from the e.u. is likely to be delayed and the wheels off or laying off the brags that bus but if you think about it to reason may wasn't the one that called the referendum in the
8:12 am
first place a certain previous prime minister dead and she has hammered out. deal with the e.u. like she was supposed to but the politicians in parliament won't sign off on it because some of them are hard bragg's it is that want to stick it to brussels and many of them remain is that want to stick with brussels and pleasing the politicians in a predominantly remain a parliament while carrying out the will of the people is turning into an impossible task some say she's trapped like the time she couldn't get out of this car carrying the poisoned brags that charlie. even donald trump has had a dig i'm surprised the hell believe it's all gone voices of support already i don't always agree with her but i know her to be a woman of coverage i also feel sorry for her because we have actually given her an

her message to the people of britain is that she's trying her hardest to deliver britain's depart. for you this i am absolutely sure you the public have had enough your charge of the infighting your tired of the political games and the arcane procedural rounds tired of m.p.'s talking about nothing else but bricks it when you have real concerns about our children schools our national health service knife crime you want this stage of the bricks it process to be over and done with i agree on your side she might be forgiven for wondering if there is anyone left on her. i was reporting while the political commentator on very walker says that tourism aides approach to breaks it has been a failure. she is trying her best to deliver on the referendum result but she's
8:15 am
dead wrong in the way of doing it the withdrawal agreements and the the backstop means that unless the irish agree with trade agreements we end up being ruled by brussels in perpetuity that can't make any sense for a sensible democratic western nation so it's a reason they may well be doing have past and she's she's fighting a policy at that desperately wants to remain in the european union what nobody is thinking about is what the ordinary voters walks of people want to leave the european union that's what the majority want so we consulted polman we consulted the government we consulted the european union and they've all got their views well actually it's time to think about what the public wants i mean really what the public wants is not to extend article fifty and it's not to have any sort with all agree but it's a lever become a fully independent nation at the eleven o'clock twelve o'clock yuletide next friday. when it's coming up to a quarter past three here in moscow to soften in still ahead from the canadian prime minister justin trudeau is being challenged over his feminism well i haven't
8:16 am
got that story present this to you just after the break. or. good politicians do you should. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. i wanted.
8:17 am
to be close to see what the three of them can be good. interesting. question. again our canadian opposition lawmaker has lashed out at the prime minister there calling him a fake feminist in a fiery parliamentary session michelle rumpole accused justin trudeau of song and sing powerful women in an ongoing corruption scandal. the use of the term them in this great house one more time if this kind minister start to minister why she was lying the former attorney. well the former attorney general who the lawmaker just
8:18 am
mentioned there is one of four top officials to have resigned in a bribery case that shaken the canadian government jody wilson raybold says she was pressured by trudeau to drop an investigation into the canadian engineering giant s.n.c. laval and the company's also one of the world's largest construction firms and twenty fifteen it was charged with bribery and fraud in libya and legibly paid ninety eight million dollars to gadhafi era officials to secure lucrative contracts including the world's biggest irrigation projects in the wake of the scandal trudeau's approval ratings have slumped from forty one percent in january right down to thirty three percent this month with widespread calls for his resignation the canadian prime minister has denied any wrongdoing insisting he was safeguarding the interests of focus. i and my staff always acted appropriately and professionally we of course had discussions about the potential loss of nine
8:19 am
thousand jobs in communities across the country but we spoke to the canadian journalist or than he says that just untrue days claims of feminism have been used to score political points. this is not about holding true to one's values it is not about actually having a code of ethics it is about winning elections you know government has made it such a priority they have used accusations of sexism they have used the term feminist to prop up their party so much that other conservatives are almost forced to bring this up in the conversation because they have made it such an important political debate so if your party is going to be about equality half women half men in the parliament that is going to be the hill that your party guys on that you better stand on it if you're going to use that as a weapon well then be prepared for that to be used as a weapon against you trudeau when you don't live up to your own values this will certainly make it a closer election than i initially thought and i think the conservatives could have
8:20 am
a chance at taking things if trudeau continues down this road of scandal after scandal. to chile where the brazilian president's visit there prompted violent protests on friday with riot police resorting to to gas and also the use of water cannon. the rally was organized by anti fascists and gay rights activists groups targeted by force and protesters took to the streets of the tunisian capital santiago setting up barricades and clashing with police from chile politicians of whom so it's not to be declared persona non grata the one see his far right policies are the impartiality v.k. immigration officials meanwhile he's being called into question after it was revealed that they use bible quotes to reject an asylum seeker from iran. in the
8:21 am
chapter twenty six god states you will pursue your enemies and they will fall by the sword before you the book of revelation is filled with imagery of revenge destruction death and violence these examples are inconsistent with your claim the converted to christianity after discovering it is a peaceful religion. the church of england was left unimpressed saying it was concerned that an asylum seekers' fate might be decided by a misunderstanding of sacred texts the home office says the rejection letter was a one off though and not in line with its general policies it also said it will work on training its stars well the latest figures show that asylum applications in the u.k. reached almost thirty thousand in twenty eight or sixty seven percent of applicants are rejected first time around we spoke with the chairman of an immigration consultancy firm sound more alley and he thinks that the home office is looking for excuses to turn down refugees it is surprising that the home office should
8:22 am
behave the way bar you know unfortunately in some respects it's not surprising because they are quite unreasonable around help for. a looking for excuses to turn down an asylum cases even cases which many people would consider to be quite a journey whims you know the unfortunate there we are the home office. quite inventive in a way and come up with you know a whole range of reasons to refuse asylum you know which can be completely unjustified you know unfortunately governments want to have been tough on immigration and the home office are under pressure to be nasty are helpful and so on for sure that's what's happening so perhaps it's not just the home office officials force was also the government's for for encouraging officials to be nasty and helpful. now the u.n.
