l if “at tit zit: it didn't start very well and the day didn't start very well for the australians when their poster girl sally pearson held a press c0 nfe re nce poster girl sally pearson held a press conference to announce that she was withdrawing from the games, because of her achilles injury, her ongoing injury. she had carried the queen's pattern at the opening ceremony yesterday, raising hopes that she would compete but there was disbelief in the streets when on the big screens it came out today that she was pulling out of the athletics and the hurdles. if you like your u psets and the hurdles. if you like your upsets there's two great ones from today, wales beating india 3—2 in the hockey, and it's the first time in women's hockey that they've beaten india in a major tournament. but actually in terms of the biggest u psets but actually in terms of the biggest upsets so far at these games, size counted for little as jersey beat australia in the men's triple bowls. it means jersey australia in the men's triple bowls. it meansjersey now control the group with two wins out of two and probably they didn't expect that at the start of these games. excellent, thank you very much, mike bushell on the gold coast. time for a look at the weather.
1:31 pm
here's ben rich. the weather has put us through the mill recently so we will take today. it's a beautiful day. this picture comes from guernsey, blue skies overhead, a similar story in county durham. still some snow lying around on the ground. it shows up in our satellite picture. but for most of us satellite picture. but for most of us it really is just the story of sunshine. a bit of extra cloud beginning to creep in from the west. the sunshine will turn a little bit hazy across parts of northern ireland, for example, but generally a nice looking afternoon. temperatures between 9—13 degrees. we'll keep the sunshine for many as we go into the first part of the evening, then overnight central and eastern areas will keep some clear spells. here it will turn relatively chilly, perhaps a touch of frost in isolated spots but out west vic cloud, strengthening wind and some outbreaks of rain particularly for northern ireland and the western side of scotland. that's the first sign ofa side of scotland. that's the first sign of a change for tomorrow. low pressure trying to squeeze its way
1:32 pm
in from the west. this frontal system not making much progress during tomorrow and ahead of the frontal system look where the air will be coming from, from iberia and the south of france, where it's pretty warm at the moment. this mile there will be moving in our direction. during tomorrow, split fortunes, northern ireland and western scotland and some western fringes seeing cloud and outbreaks of rain. further east, some spells of rain. further east, some spells of sunshine. breezy wherever you are. have a look at these temperatures for tomorrow afternoon. i7 temperatures for tomorrow afternoon. 17 degrees in the south—east, maybe 12 in newcastle. a little bit cooler where we have the cloud and rain further north—west. as we head into the first part of the weekend, low pressure is still spinning around down to the south—west. this little frontal system here is going to give us frontal system here is going to give us i2—macro headaches. we'll see pulses of wet weather running a along it. there is some uncertainty but there will be some for a time. equally some dry weather and spells
1:33 pm
of sunshine. if you get some brightness it will feel miles. in fa ct brightness it will feel miles. in fact it may feel warm. 18 degrees in norwich and double digit temperatures just about wherever you are. for sunday a lot of fine weather around, some mist and fog patches first thing then spells of sunshine. could be a bit of showery rain but generally not a bad looking day and those temperatures even further north in scotland 14—15, just about all others into double digits. the weekend can be summed up like this, mild, some sunny spells, a bit of rain at times, some mist and fog, but compared with what we've had recently, not bad. that's all from the bbc news at one. on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc‘s news teams where you are. it was near this spotjust before 8pm last night that police officers we re 8pm last night that police officers were flagged down by a motorist. here in link street they found an 18—year—old suffering from stab wounds. despite to the russian embassy. let's listen in. i will answer to all the questions. will you accept the
1:34 pm
results of whatever they are next week, of the eap cw, and also, if the session this afternoon at the un security council in new york does not go in your favour, what is the next step of the russian government too, in this case,? on the second question i need to advice, what we are meant to do. i don't know. first of all, we want to discuss with all the countries, and the security counsel in this case... 23 cases against 15, so the majority of the world, the world security is not —— welts community is not supporting the western approach. i don't know what we are going to do. if as far as the results, of course we will
1:35 pm
accept the results, but, this result should be confirmed by the international community, so, we want to see who were the experts. for the time being, we do not know who were the experts. last time, the team was headed by the british in syria and that was a real problem for us. and first of all, we need the international team, and we want to see the results like the others. so, it should be notjust the chosen group, it should be the very transparent approach from the point of view of the participation. so, from that point you will have no problems. it sounds like you are asking the british government to meet at a high—level? are you asking for a meeting between president putin? and the british prime minister? how far can this go? irma
1:36 pm
we need the evidence. the only thing that we are asking is to present the evidence and support allegations. —— and to see if it supports allegations. nothing else. could you just clarify that you will not acce pt just clarify that you will not accept the result of the enquiry unless the russians are involved in the enquiry itself? are you changing your? no. if you weren't except the result, are you not bring it to cushion the whole multicultural approach? we want transparency. we wa nt approach? we want transparency. we want the international presence in this so—called investigation. so, of course, we are happy to have russian bear, because we could ask the right
1:37 pm
questions. but we will be happy to have other countries, you know, not just from the eu, but also from india, from china, from america. let's be transparent. that is affecting what we mean. it is not a changing of the position. we want to be part of that business, and not be excluded. on monday, the prime minister is meeting with theresa may to discuss among other things russia. what i would like to ask, what why should people in denmark and other places in europe believe that russia
1:38 pm
would... could you repeat the second question? why should we believe that you, russia, with this so—so democracy and disappearing of journalist... don't take anything for granted. ask the prime minister to take... why keep the evidence in secret? i do not understand that. maybe the prime minister will understand that. so, thatis minister will understand that. so, that is why, my message is naked transparent. it is a very serious
1:39 pm
issue, and we have to know the truth. it at least... thank you, ambassador. russian state tv has today at what they say is a conversation between yulia and her cousin in which yulia says that her and her father cousin in which yulia says that her and herfatherare "fine cousin in which yulia says that her and her father are "fine and will recover's. do you know if this bone composition is genuine, and if so, what is your response to that that both will recover? first of all, i have no official permission from the bridge aside. we still have no a nswe i’s , bridge aside. we still have no answers, so we always “— bridge aside. we still have no answers, so we always —— from the british side. we still have no
1:40 pm
a nswe i’s. british side. we still have no answers. we always rely on something. this is a good opportunity for us to ask the foreign office, once again, about the condition of yulia and sergei skripal. based on the statement that was made in the russian tv on the salisbury poisoning. that is a good opportunity for us to remind about oui’ opportunity for us to remind about our questions which were opposed baby five times or something, and didn't get any answers. this is a monopoly of the british, what is happening here? not yet. gray you have said today, ——
1:41 pm
today, -- in your personal experience, who do you think did do it? mrloverof experience, who do you think did do it? mr lover of —— sergei lavrov confirmed... and secondly,... it? mr lover of —— sergei lavrov confirmed... and secondly, . .. 23. nobody is going to have press conferences if these things happen once again. whee what do you think -- what do you think convinced him to accept and believe the uk
1:42 pm
position... on the second question, i don't know. there was no common sense. it is not fair, all of them were called spies. well, we don't buy it. so, it's 23 british diplomats were expeued it's 23 british diplomats were expelled from moscow. and, at of course, the relations between two countries are at their lowest level today. at least, you know... for many years. this is a first. as far as this lavrov statement, he just
1:43 pm
illustrated our logic. we believe that the british side is not cooperating with us. they are giving us no cooperating with us. they are giving us no information, they are not ready to give us access to the investigation, so, he believed that that was the communication. otherwise, it is not a provocation. he was cooperating. —— if it was not a provocation, he would cooperate. he would be happy to know what happened. that was his logic. this is the so—called, as he put it, that brings us to conclusion. so basically, we're not blaming anybody. but, having all these things in hand, what to think? so that was what the lavrov meant. no, no the microphone. no, it
1:44 pm
doesn't work. everybody wants to hear you. just do something. the expert is coming. it works.|j hear you. just do something. the expert is coming. it works. i was just wondering, given the deteriorating diplomatic relations, and the issue with the world cup, do you think that there will be an instance where perhaps... also, are you conducting any particular investigations of your own in russia, and in other countries, perhaps to work out what happened? on the world cup, of course we are waiting for everybody. we are cooperating with fever. we hope that other teams will come. -- fifa. —— fifa. the majority of the world do not support the british government, and that means that the
1:45 pm
whole world will come, and i'm quite sure that all the teams will come, but if somebody is not going to come, that is their personal decision. this will be a celebration of sport, and i'm quite assured that there will be a good result. for all of us. and, i think that for us, there is a great opportunity, just to show our country, because not so many people knew, but last month, we launched in russia five g. you know what five g is no mobile phones? it is ten times faster than four g? i think people will come to russia and see that the technology is great, the food is great and the hospitality is outstanding. as well as other countries that are concerned, we know the —— we need
1:46 pm
the british badly. what we can do without the british side? it happened on british soil. so, our job is very simple. we have too engage the british side in a joint investigation, or, of course, maybe somebody will help us, to convince them that we need to investigate jointly. fast, it is very clear that these people were poisons, and they we re these people were poisons, and they were russian citizens, and the criminal cases opened in russia. so, we wa nt criminal cases opened in russia. so, we want to know the truth. —— these people were poisoned. we have a lot of suspicions about britain, you know. if you take the last ten yea rs, know. if you take the last ten years, so many russian citizens died here in the uk, under very strange circumstances. the last one by the way, glushkov, he was strangled on the 12th of march. here's the
1:47 pm
russian businessmen. russian businessmen not citizen. his case is also classified. we have no access to the investigation. we don't have anything. my question, what is happening here? this is the answer to your question. is the government still considering the... and what is the time frame? how is it communicated? is yulia skripal supposed to do things face—to—face, or is somebody...
1:48 pm
good question. there are some unwritten rules. if something goes wrong with the citizen, you can expect that may be next day, orjust once, and he at least you have to inform that the embassy —— inform the embassy that something will happen. so, it wasn't done. so, the first request came from us. and the reply took something like a week. this is exactly another... another support of the behaviour of the british government. so, no limits, no nothing, but we insist. as far as
1:49 pm
the counsellor, or of course the counsellor can would come in presence of the police. —— of course the counsellor could come in presence of the police, but it depends on the formalities. in order to get those, you need to communicate. and today, scotland ya rd communicate. and today, scotland yard and the british government is abusing to communicate with us. no answer. the telephones are switched -- is answer. the telephones are switched —— is refusing to communicate with us. no answer, the telephones are switched off. and that brings us to the conclusion, what is happening here? why no transparency? bigeye foundry denying, but i am repeating and repeating, because we are dealing with that everyday, and here in the uk, the russian embassy has to provide certain services for its citizens, and we cannot do this? how can we bring to the russian people, if they listen to story number one
1:50 pm
on the russian tv, as the popularity of britain in the eyes of the russian citizens going down, because visibly don't understand why it's happening. you mentioned the twitter feed earlier and then there's events such as this. do you want to measure any success in... what you mean change the success? measuring the success of what? you must have watched the way many people on the left picked up some of these ideas. have you seen any success? it is a very british approach. we want to help the people. what are you talking about? it is not about success or not success. the people
1:51 pm
are in trouble, and we don't know what is happening. so, i will tell you frankly, we did even think of that. and, we want you all to know what is happening here. and we want to help them, that is it, nothing else. you mentioned the deaths of a number of russian citizens in the uk. why do you think this seems to be a problem that affects russian citizens perhaps more than citizens of other countries here? you also said that boris johnson's of other countries here? you also said that borisjohnson's response had been unacceptable. do you think that he is to blame for the lack of operation that you feel you've had from the foreign office? he is the foreign secretary, and he is part of the government, so basically, we are not... his personal twitter, from
1:52 pm
the point of view, just a reference. this is it. but, what can we say on that? yes. you said that russia doesn't possess and produce novichok any more? any more? not any more. we never produced it. like you said, you never produced it. can you tell me when you had it last time, and if there is —— if it is possible that there is —— if it is possible that there were any... just for the reference, we shut down all the chemical programmes in 1992. since that time, we started eliminating or
1:53 pm
the chemical weapons, and finished the chemical weapons, and finished the whole story last september. that was september 2000 17. —— 2017. we never produced novichok. we don't have any chemicals left in russia. so basically this isjust have any chemicals left in russia. so basically this is just a fact of life. by the way, the united states, which was pushing all of us to eliminate the chemical weapons, is going to eliminate their weapons only by 2023. and this is just the plan. so, why it is happening, i don't know. i'm not good to take your time. so, don't know. i'm not good to take yourtime. so, i hope i don't know. i'm not good to take your time. so, i hope i answered your time. so, i hope i answered your question. cani
1:54 pm
can ijust can i just ask can ijust ask about two questions, . .. questions,... could you repeat it slower? sooneror sooner or later or soonerorlateror in sooner or later or in the future? the sooner or later or in the future ? the second sooner or later or in the future? the second question, why is it happening, in the uk, lots of people feel confused, why this is happening between the uk and russia? good question, i did have any answer in the second question. on the first question, we want to understand the
1:55 pm
truth. i am quite sure that surrogate and euler skripal will also like to know what happened to them, and —— that sergei skripal and yulia skripal will want to know the truth. we need to investigate, but the time being, no investigation is happening. that is why is going to be me... it could be anybody from the russian side. we want to establish the truth, and i think, since at least what we hear, that yulia is in good health now, she will probably... she could probably a nswer will probably... she could probably answer some questions on her side, on the questions that we put to the foreign office, that there are something like, so basically, these are the questions that we want to hear. but, from a personal point of view, we are really sorry for them.
1:56 pm
and this is our people, and i am going to meet personally with victoria skripal, in order to have a good conversation with her, and offer her any help that we can make. to offer her anything. so, that is at least my goal. louder please. thank you, ambassador. you have mentioned a future and that what is happening on the uk soil, you have mentioned about... is there a part of you that is blaming the uk? and my second question is, what would be the next step if the uk... what was it? what would be the next step as they russian government if the
1:57 pm
uk...?i they russian government if the uk. . . ? i don't they russian government if the uk...? i don't know they russian government if the uk. . . ? i don't know what would be the second is that, because every country has its reputation, and that's why, i believe that at the end of the day, who gets —— we will get some answers. the fact that the majority of the opc w countries didn't support the version of the us and uk on this story, means that the whole world is waiting for answers. so, this is the answered your question. lama bit i am a bit confused about if you think that you have said. first you said that novichok never existed in russia. are you saying that novichok
1:58 pm
was probably produced in the us? has it ever existed? if it does,... so does russia re—search novichok antidote if they don't exist? but second of all, you are saying, thereof people, mentioned in a few years ago that certain people got what they deserved. what happened to yulia skripal and is she recovering? why are we hearing on russian television, if not? this is her sister who lives in russia. so, basically, she is in good health, and she is coming to london. this is
1:59 pm
the answer. as far as the first question, i am the answer. as far as the first question, iam not the answer. as far as the first question, i am not going to answer the question about putin, and i will tell you why. he never said like that. and i have all the gratings of my president. this isjust listing all the sense what he said. so, from my point of view, it is not correct. as far as the novichok, since the question was asked, yesterday, there was a speech at the opc w meeting and russian experts, —— a russian expat, —— expert, and you can get his beach, but i'lljust make if you references from that statement. he said that the first mentioning of
2:00 pm
this novichok was unavailable for the broad access that was made in the broad access that was made in the united states in 1995. 1995 there was a report of a centre. that was the first
