in an exclusive interview with r.t. russia's prosecutor general's office slams allegations it was somehow involved in the meeting between donald trump jr and a russian lawyer. it's insane to see that the prosecutor general's office would use a private lawyer to transfer information. from smocks a year since the deadly terror attack in nice but a french magazine comes under fire for printing graphic images of the atrocity. and a new videos emerged reportedly showing u.s. helicopters over the city of raka i still stay facti capital in syria washington has confirmed its forces do operate inside the city but only under the pretext of advise assist and accompany.
the watching r.t. international live from moscow i'm kate partridge thank you for joining us. in an exclusive interview with r.t. russia's prosecutor general's office has spoken out about claims it was involved in the meeting between a russian lawyer and donald trump jr the encounter has much of the western media proclaiming that it's proof of moscow's collusion with team trump during the presidential election but the prosecutor general's representative denied any links to the story is saying any contact with an american citizen would have had to have gone through official channels well let's recap on some of the details of the scandal. john jr was initially contacted by an intermediary who talked about handing over very high level and sensitive information by
a russian lawyer the him for supposedly incriminated hillary clinton and was viewed as part of moscow's effort to aid his father's campaign well it's apparently originated from a crown prosecutor of russia however as there's no such position in the country it's thought it was supposed to mean the general prosecutor we hear is more with our interview with denise crudeness the head of the international communications office with the general prosecutor. some foreign media wrote about the meeting between donald trump jr and russian lawyer and italian vessel needs sky which reportedly took place last june and possible involvement of the russian prosecutor general's office in brokering the meeting how would you comment on this information i would not want to comment on something that is totally untrue. you have to understand the office of the prosecutor general does not share information of these individuals in the us such contacts can only happen through official
channels as stipulated by international agreements and after a formal request. submitted by a prosecution agency. this is exactly as it should be told to your foreign colleagues and had about a dozen major of western media outlets asking us to comment. interestingly enough they did not publish any of our comments so why are you saying that the prosecutor general's office could not have sent vessel needs it's insane to think that the prosecutor general's office would use a private lawyer to transfer information let me explain this communication between our edge and sea and the us usually happens in one thousand nine hundred nine u.s. and russia and to into the treaty or mutual legal assistance in criminal matters and it's still valid. this treaty of state is that any exchanges of information
about criminal cases ease down through the country's official agencies with their russian prosecutor general's office and the u.s. department of justice. so if we need to share information to resolve our american colleagues we send it to the justice department after. processing it in full compliance visa treaty. this is a direct channel of communication between our agence is for instance since. two selves and fifteen. we sent more than one hundred requests to the u.s. asking for legal assistance in criminal matters and received about. forty. forty such requests from our american colleagues so the prosecutor general's office
can share information with the justice department how does that work give you some examples even though we have no extradition treaty ensuring the inevitability of punishment for those who commit crimes. sharing information and evidence that de old j. needs for instance upon request from the u.s. department of justice a russian citizen named accorsi. was charged with a murder of two people in new york in two selves until eleven. the court sense sentenced him to nineteen years in prison. last march. california central district court sentenced a us citizen abram off to life in prison for pedophilia.
justice was served because it evidence of you the u.s. law enforcement you said that there is no extradition treaty is that the only problem hindering the cooperation between the prosecution agencies of the two countries we appreciate our colleagues the level of professionalism and respect them but at the same time we have to admit that in some areas. not as eager to burke. as we hope we would hope. as an example i can mention investigation of economic crimes in russia. the final stages of the investigation into the illegal because of two hundred million guest from shares tax evasion and deliberate bankruptcy of a number of companies i would request. regarding potentially illegal actions
cross border criminal group that includes the brothers william browder and james and firestone remains and then is accused it. we have not received the evidence we need for our investigation our american counterparts have conducted no inquiry or investigation based on the information we sent and you'll surely be able to watch that interview in full at r.t. dot com. now france is marking the first anniversary of the terror attack in nice the city has organized a large scale tributes to the victims some of their families are attending and president not color set to meet them privately later he also appeared as a highly protected central square and shook hands with people in the crowd event is set to continues throughout the evening. one year

course they have said we believe them that they would never show a fortress right to recognize people they will keep the dignity of victims of course intact i think it's very good because the public even the press doesn't know now. how this guy came on to call me that this all play with a struck why shouldn't by much publish these photos they do will respect the dignity of the victims for sure. staying in france u.s. president donald trump has wrapped up his two day visit to paris on thursday he held talks with his french counterpart emmanuel markhor and today he was a special guest in the best you know day parade in the capital and it seems the two leaders found it hard to say goodbye to.

on that until later to be chosen to be part of this very special occasion but it's also come twins to a little bit of sadness as there has been criticism of the fact that a russian is conducting the orchestra this evening and nor a french my story now some people in the price of criticize to let it get to give as being a propaganda tool of the kremlin and all of the kremlin propaganda being the russian and that was one of the questions i asked him is how difficult it is to be accused of being a propaganda tool when what he says he wants to do is to be a musician and to make people enjoy and people come together in home any time soon you're. quite often especially six seven eight years. old was russians music i'm going to be. there but i was
