will bring you the world cup special coverage throughout the day here of course on our international. french authorities have begun clearing out parts of a rough neighborhood in the outskirts of paris where locals say a drug epidemic has spiraled out of control the cleanup comes just a day off to do a report on the year's long drug problem gripping the french capital. police have been here in the area dubbed by locals as croc kill since the break of dawn on wednesday there is
a huge operation underway to clear out the hundreds of people who've been living in this slum for many many months as you can see shacks have been constructed and you can get a sense from the piles of rubbish here just what the conditions have been like and so pungent is the smell here that the offices who have been inspecting the interiors of these shacks have had to wear face masks locals have told us that they have been crying out for help for some months to clear this black spot this plight in that community. today i'm satisfied but i'm not exactly sure whether this change will be permanent maybe it's just for the journalists who come here. i think the the media pressure on the city of paris and on the pitch was. too important. not to not to to react this police operation comes
just one day after we reported on the situation r.t. . i'm on the road that skirts around port palette in the paris as you can see the slum that's emerged here is brimming with rubbish it's also infested with rats but more worryingly this has become a whole sport for crack addicts and the issue isn't so severe now that locals of this crack hill a little further up the road it's not long before we come across people who appear to be smoking crack in throughout daylight others showing signs of being high often known as the poor man's drug crack is said to to refer. of cocaine mixed with baking soda or mania it's the most addictive form of the drug revision
i've seen people come here and after six months they look like the walking dead they lost fifteen kilos it's really hell for everyone she share in the g.m. has lived here for twelve years he says that while poor delish apparel has had a history of drug problems it's now spiraled out of control. the situation imported election apparel is catastrophic the authorities have let the place turn into a slum full of crack addicts it is ignore way the community on the hill there are five hundred people who were doing crazy things and annoying the locals very aggressively steal all sorts of things going on here about five years ago there were around a dozen of them we knew who they were but today it's five hundred the state is completely abandoned everyone stuck in traffic we see some men demanding money from drivers they claim it's for food but local say the money goes on drugs and despite a continuous police presence nothing seems to change some officials are now claiming
this is the crack capital of france the scale of the problem is such that put the chapelle is the biggest selling point and consumer of crack in france the people who live in port delish appelle and its surrounding areas remain in fear is the crack addiction continues to explode jollity pinsky r.t. paris and donald trump is threatening motorcycle make a harley davidson over the company's plans to shift production away from the u.s. or have a story in full right out of this break. twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time but there was one more question and by the way he's going to be our coach.
you guys i know you are nervous he's a huge tournaments and the huge amount of pressure you have to be the center of the . great. you are the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need you to get down there we have to go. alone. and i'm really happy to join for the two thousand and three and world cup in russia. this special one. needs to just read the review. the latest edition as we go.
u.s. president donald trump's national security advisor john bolton is visiting moscow where he's currently meeting the russian president vladimir putin let's cross over to. for more on the meeting the purpose of john bolton's visit you mentioned earlier in your report better relations with russia what do we expect to come out of it. well they're meeting now and they've both made opening statements vladimir putin stated the obvious that you know the relations between russia and the united states right now. exactly in their best shape and he says that because of internal political dynamics in the united states you know political struggles between various factions of the united states but he said john bolton's visit to russia even in an overt itself gives gives hope that relations will be restored between russia and the united states to which john bolton said that you
know we'll will meet anyone we're open to even meeting a rainy and officials and that donald trump is supports global global stability and they both reiterated that nobody wants any sort of conflict but the white house clearly stated why john bolton was coming it was to talk about the outstanding and serious issues between russia and the united states syria ukraine the developing arms race relations which are almost the low and sending john bolton here because you know those rumors that he's here to organize a meeting between vladimir putin and donald trump which would be which would be a huge thing though john bolton himself yes quite a character setting him here may have been a message as well because he's he's aggressive when it comes to foreign policy he's a real hawk a real america first everyone out second kind of fellow so even if donald trump
ease all for repairing relations with russia job bolton might don't be on board. russians have walked all over the obama administration for eight years it's really been a pathetic performance if you make them feel pain and others feel pain then the possibility of deterring future conduct like this increases that's what we need to do of course one might ask why you john bolton and why he now all of. dimes take
into account what's happening between europe and the united states the chill in relations they off the donald trump slapped tariffs on various european goods that irritated them then said a number of things about europe itself and nato he says he's unhappy about how much europe is is chipping in into the alliance at the defense and and spending and you know there it there at all and so. donald trump's sort of reaching out to russia it may be a message to europe either you dance to austria will make friends with russia and any way you look at it the europeans a pretty pretty afraid and it also explains donald trump's recent statement about and highly an expected statement about returning russia to the g. eight. i would rather see russia in the g. eight as opposed to the g.
seven i would say that the g. eight is a more meaningful group than the g seven whatever donald trump and his administration a plane that it's working in your. press especially british press britain the champion of the russian movement in europe they're saying they're ringing alarm bells they're saying that their dismay that this is this isn't good of relations between russia and the united states isn't going to be good for europe but john bolton is open to the press later today we've got a whole lot of questions lined up where meant when he answers hopefully we'll have a clear understanding of whether the united states is bluffing here or whether it genuinely wants better relations with russia indeed in time that much anticipated meeting between don't trouble about to produce and finally materialize that would no doubt be one of the key questions there are these what i gather for the latest.
another a few american symbols more iconic than the harley davidson motorcycle. i . i. very soon could all come to an end president donald trump has now lashed out at a motorcycle maker over holley davidson's plans to shift production away from its united states base. harley davidson is using deficit excuse and i don't like that because i've been very good at arlington which you know they use that as an excuse and i think the people that right are always are not happy with harley davidson and i wouldn't be either but mostly companies are coming back to work. on twitter
trump even threaten the company saying that if harley davidson doesn't move it will be the beginning of the end and they'll be taxed like never before harley davidson of course planned to move some of their manufacturing to europe to avoid newly imposed e.u. tariffs when exporting to the continent the company says the move will save nearly one hundred million dollars per year in taxes. and the backdrop to that story of course the e.u. recently slapping import charges on american goods including most of works in retaliation of course against trucks tariffs on steel and aluminum trump claimed the levees were needed to protect u.s. manufacturing from unfair competition economist jeffrey albert tucker though says american firms have nothing to gain from trade was this is a consequence trumps trade war and it's a classic case of how these government actions tend to have the opposite effect
trump wants to make america great again what he's actually doing is causing more financial pressure for american firms that rely on imported raw goods and for american producers who rely on markets abroad to buy their products so this is very bad american companies will move aspects of their businesses abroad if it's a life or death issue the purpose of business is to serve the cause of business and to to stay profitable and to serve their stockholders the purpose of business is not to make donald trump happy. well this is the latest picture you can see behind me from the kremlin where u.s. national security advisor john bolton is meeting russian president vladimir putin and out of the whole range of international issues on the agenda to discuss and perhaps of course ranging also that much anticipated as we said earlier a meeting between the u.s. and russian presidents a what better time to have this meeting of course than the
world cup here in moscow and in russia. who will be. a group of french butchers say they're in need of police protection after becoming the target of what they call terrorism not what you might think of course at the hand of vegan activists according to them they accuse animal rights campaigners of vandalizing shops across the country and spreading fear among meat lovers. so i came here in the morning to open the shop and get the carrots and i saw the window had been smashed at the first i thought it was mandela's more wrong but then i saw the writing and realised it was an attack by the against.
the post this is murder sounds suspicious a new species is murder first humans who think they're superior to adults. i saw said that but you know now they're attacking buildings but who are they going to target next the people who work there and if the police do not protect us things could escalate so now it's beacons were hungry but then at some point the coaches were good and bt and then it could get serious. well join us again often our moscow time for the latest global news headlines and of course the latest football updates as well see the.
