9:06 am
a five year increase for men from sixty to sixty five will stay women with three or more children can retire three years there. the draft bill proposes raising the retirement age for women by eight years to sixty three and for men by five years this is not right we care for women in russia the retirement age for women shouldn't be raised for men that's why bravos raising it only by five years talk of change to russia's pension legislation has been brewing for a long time there have been no changes since the one nine hundred thirty s. and even during soviet times there was much discussion about the need for reform in large part that was the great patriotic from year nine hundred forty one to nineteen forty five calls. to the democratic russia and the u.s.s.r. not just directly with a vast number of people killed but also indirectly through that toll taken on the birth rate both during the war years and after in the one nine hundred ninety s.

9:09 am
to the u.s. and we voted on the deal with mexico so i do think that this is going to go through also with regard to the timing bought the midterms the coming up how many people are actually going to run saying i think i'm going eliminate jobs and i don't want to agree on this because i think i'd rather leave us in limbo and not have more jobs for our automakers i'm for all dairy producers and for the midwest and when you talk about timing i mean it's ninety days what the president must submit ninety days the congress has to approve of it's under expedited that's the fast track part of a promotion authority so they say they want to do that on friday the administration where are they going to get their i think they might well do because the mexicans want to do it and also don't forget you talked about the canadian foreign minister . just from a european vacation and i would actually call it complete she lay i feel like they've capitulated because they tame him very late if you remember to p.p. two thousand and fifteen october they came in very very late coming in late to this it's sort of like do or die now and i think yes i would be surprised if we don't

9:18 am

9:20 am
partners overall the mission was a success it is hoped that good food from russia sampled in viet nam will leave a lasting impression as well ron cost r t. as a decisive battle looms over the last rebel stronghold and could leave competent syria but the united states discards russian intelligence on a possible chemical attack being prepared by terrorists that are going to. this is enough for many to try to put the blame they try to put the onus on other groups and we don't buy into. the video of a young palestinian girl scaling an israeli built fence to get home in the west bank we speak to the activist who filmed the. germany struggles to deport undocumented migrants faces more than five hundred criminal charges the issue of illegal migration overshadows chancellor merkel's tour of africa. outspoken british rock star roger waters who's in russia for a set of gigs he's got plenty to say about the world's biggest issues and where he
9:21 am
gets his news. producing the record producer his record started telling me about how far to the how was. just pure propaganda nothing but a pack of lies when i worked churchy. just after eleven in the morning this. latest world news from first for you this hour the united states ignoring warnings that terrorists are preparing a chemical attack in italy a province in northwest syria a state department spokesperson simply said that they don't buy into that when asked about the intelligence provided by moscow. the russians are claiming now and one other groups are stockpiling chemical weapons and planning an attack so you know and i think that's more false flag type reporting it i'm going to be as
9:22 am
a seen now for when you try to put the blame they try to put the onus on other groups and we don't buy into that russia says it has information on the delivery of toxic substances to edward prominence it claims that it got there with the help of the self-styled rescue group the white helmet and is to be used in a false flag attack russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov says that it's aimed at keeping al nasra terrorists in the country to be further used against the syrian government the chemical weapons provocation which is being prepared is aimed at keeping al nusra can sing on using it against the so-called regime as they call it following the alleged goot a chemical attack russia's warning that rebels will try to stage as similar incident indeed live to draw the u.s. france and britain in get them to hit as sad again russia says an incident is imminent especially after the u.s. and allies jointly stated that they would act if it looks like as had launched another chemical attack that's almost an invitation to do so says moscow.
9:23 am
now when the u.s. is steering the situation around we want to know how can damascus have chemical weapons if the u.s. france and great britain destroyed them last year you know what the us and says we never said that france did its do or die for the jihad ists rebels nowhere left to run nothing left to lose and their sponsors the west the gulf which have pumped billions upon billions of dollars into a cause that's on its last legs the mascot's and moscow are trying to work out a deal to reduce perhaps avoid the bloodshed but the job for it syria russia adamant these swamp of terror and zealotry. has no future. group this is the last place for the terrorists so from all points of view this abscess should be removed of course what everybody's fearful of is escalation given
9:24 am
the us russian military buildup in the region everyone has a gun pointed at each other and given that this is it the final act of the syrian war the urge to shoot might just be overwhelming the united states doesn't believe that the rebels have that capability whereas there's tremendous documentation to show that they do have the capability they've probably been storing it for months if not years in the province and they have used it in the past they have that capability and it is a last ditch hold for them so it cannot be ruled out and it's not it's not beyond the realm of possibility that the u.s. is trying to get assad out they're going to continue trying and and even though donald trump wants to. get the u.s. out of syria there are elements within the u.s.
9:25 am
government that don't want that to happen. back to concerns about the white house specifically the group being accused of assisting the delivery of a large supply of chemicals to italy and they've been linked with terrorists several times before you know political activist an outspoken british rock musician what waters from pink floyd has been sharing his thoughts about it without saying he's currently in russia or on tour and spoke at length to r.t. sophie shevardnadze. if there is a grassroots body called the way home ads of volunteers. separate for the people who actually started in istanbul it was that it didn't start syria was started by an english ship soldier. inestimable but if that body exists. and they and they go and help people. in a salad or the russians or somebody else to stop observe them then i support them
9:26 am
whole heartedly with every fiber of my being but all the evidence points to the fact that that is not the reality i don't know if you did you did you see the the documentary that won the oscar. i mean have you ever seen anything so obviously scripted and carefully shot. now for his book on google and you tube and part of the way that most people get their news and they use those. social media you know or in order to educate themselves or find out what's going on earth but it's being it is being the content is being censored by the corporations that earn it
9:27 am
so it's so so it's it won't be free and it's not free now but it's and they're very are targeting i wouldn't be surprised if i disappear because i'm anti war. when i was making this this record i just made is the life we really want. the guy was producing the record producing this record with me started telling me about. how archie was. just pure propaganda nothing but a pack of lies while i worked churchy so i've seen that you can't see a documentary about fracking on american television because they weren't interested in it in time and telling you anything about anything i was more where that came from the full interview with roger waters will be shown on sophie and co out on september seventh here on r.t.
