Putin says UK must clarify spy poisoning before talking with Moscow

    Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday said London must clarify its position on the poisoning of a former double agent in the UK before any discussion with Moscow, agencies said. Sort things out from your side and then we will discuss this with you, the Russian president said in response to a question from a BBC journalist, Interfax news agency reported. Senior British politicians have pointed the finger at Russia for trying to kill Sergei Skripal, who sold secrets to Britain and later moved there in a 2010 spy swap, prompting repeated denials from Moscow.

Trump lawyers battle to stop Daniels interview from airing

    The CBS News program “60 Minutes” was moving forward with plans to show an interview it conducted last week with the pornographic film actress who says she had an affair with Donald J.

Russia likely behind poisoning as Theresa May accused

    Britain has formally accused Russia of being behind the attempted murder of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter with nerve agent on its territory. Prime Minister Theresa May made the claim in a statement to Parliament on Monday afternoon, in which she said Russia either ordered the attack or lost control of whoever carried out the attack. It came after a National Security Council meeting, where she took evidence from the UK's three intelligence agencies MI5, MI6, and GCHQ.
