10:37 pm
bringing us tomorrow. with me are martin lipton, deputy sports editor at the sun, and benedicte paviote, correspondent with france 24 and president of the foreign press association. welcome to you both. lovely to have you here. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the ft weekend leads with a deepening rift between the us and eu over steel tariffs and proposed changes to digital tax. the daily mirror says police are investigating 12 new claims of child sex abuse carried out by gangs in telford. the i has more on the launch of a murder inquiry after the death of a russian exile in london. the telegraph also has that story. it says nikolai glushkov was found strangled to death in his own home. the express reports on comments made by prince harry over defence cuts. during a visit to the army air were
10:38 pm
a where he trained as a helicopter pilot. the daily mail has reaction from the foster parents of ahmed hassan after he was found guilty of trying to bomb a train in london. the times reports on a second sex scandal to hit oxfam concerning the conduct of its staff in haiti. so developments in the russia story still making the front pages. let's have a closer look. we begin with the eye. murder inquiry after exiled russian tycoon dies in london. he appears to have died from some compression to the neck, suggesting he would've strangled. indeed. it is interesting because not just uk strangled. indeed. it is interesting because notjust uk media but international media are reporting on this almost nonstop and the implications. nobody knows quite where it's going to go. this is the death on monday and in outside london. interesting because a very
10:39 pm
great friend and business partner of boris berezovsky, himself found in 2013 in his bathroom on and nikolai never believed that was a suicide. they were both prominent critics of vladimir putin, and of course it's important to underline that counterterrorism police are now investigating his death. on monday we we re investigating his death. on monday we were clearly told that was not suspect and now as a result of a special postmortem this compression of the neck and of course let's remember there has been previous criticism made here in the uk by the media and others that there was not enough investigation that the police resources have not been big enough. 14 deaths now being investigated as a result of amber rudd's statement on tuesday before the announcement of sanctions. a real ratcheting up, all of this, while we await the sanctions that eventually president vladimir putin is going to implement and announced. we believe they are
10:40 pm
coming, there may be some diplomatic tit—for—tat expulsions as well but it's just a matter of time according to sergey lavrov when he was speaking earlier in the day as well. they are saying no evidence at the moment with the poisonings in salisbury which of course have dominated the news in the earlier pa rt dominated the news in the earlier part of the week. but of course it does bring our attention back to dissidents of russians in exile in this country and there'll be many more we understand from commentators who will be fearful now. yes. the other week, but that, who will be fearful now. yes. the otherweek, but that, but who will be fearful now. yes. the other week, but that, but based on a book that was a documentary effectively, chronicling of russian involvement worldwide. there are a lot of people who were at one point allies of the kremlin who fell out with the kremlin like this guy, nikolai glushkov for whatever reason. and i think there is no... there is a link between this
10:41 pm
apparent potential murderer and the incident in salisbury. but the same guiding hand one fears may be behind both in terms of the russian state does not like people who are rented —— renegades, who turned their back oi'i —— renegades, who turned their back on mother russia and what it's about. if you fall out in the court of king vladimiryou about. if you fall out in the court of king vladimir you are in trouble. i have to declare an interest. i was supposed to be spending five weeks in moscow this summer, is going to bea in moscow this summer, is going to be a bundle of... look at the travel advisory that's been updated. there isa advisory that's been updated. there is a realfear of advisory that's been updated. there is a real fear of there being anti—british sentiment and of course what is interesting is the next article we will look at. you tell us what it is. boris johnson in the ft, there is a statement that he made. the headline is something he blames a row with moscow by claiming putin ordered by poisonings. he's referring thereto the attempted
10:42 pm
murders is being treated now because they're both still alive yet fighting for their lives. what i think is interesting about this, certainly is the fact that boris johnson has really tried in that statement with the polish minister next to him in a war bunker, which i think was quite interesting to differentiate the targeted motivated, the attempted murder, that target measured sanctions announced by theresa may on wednesday which we understand is the first phase, and the russian people, that he does not want there to beat russia phobia, and of course that's a very real fear. russia phobia, and of course that's a very realfear. —— russia phobia, and of course that's a very real fear. —— to russia phobia, and of course that's a very realfear. —— to be russia phobia, and of course that's a very real fear. —— to be russia phobia. i think it's interesting that downing street did not decline to comment on the wording of the foreign secretary and the ft here i think words it quite well when it says britain had previously on the
10:43 pm
attached unspecified responsibility to vladimir putin and indeed when the prime minister was in salisbury on her unannounced visit yesterday, she said it is tragic that mr putin has chosen to act in this way, but as the ft quite rightly point out, we are not sure if she was referring to the attack on the family or on russia's responds verbally. sergey lavrov and others calling it fa ntasy, lavrov and others calling it fantasy, some theories in moscow saying this is britain that weakened by brexit trying to distract. this is why its so interesting. we are used to diplomatic language being incredibly restrained, because we know that eight varies —— a can so very easily be ratcheted up. for borisjohnson to have used this kind of language so specifically and targeted to vladimir putin is extremely fast extremely significant in diplomatic terms. absolutely. there is the counterargument to this situation with regards to whether
10:44 pm
putin was directly responsible for ordering this is maybe it is that who will rid me of this turbulent place? people take him at his word and his wish becomes their obligation almost. here we have quite clearly the foreign secretary making it abundantly clear that in the view of the british government this was a direct act targeted by the russian head of state. that is a very serious charge and allegation. from a foreign secretary. this is the official british government policy. to be fair i don't think too many people outside of the orbit of jeremy corbyn momentum and nigel farage rather bizarre bedfellows would necessarily take any issue with what borisjohnson here has that. i think this would probably be one of those statements which the vast majority of people up and down the country here is active of their political perspective would agree with. it does seem that way, but the
10:45 pm
one thing you got to remember with russia is if you are shaking sticks they've got the bigger stick, and therein lies... how far can britain go with this very dangerous bear in the room? i want to, ifi may add two words. global support. the ft refers to that and thatjoint communique yesterday of germany, the us and france is very important and of course what the government, ministers have been doing in the un, british ambassador and the support of the us ambassador, that has all been extremely important at the un and also neto. and there are clearly more sanctions up theresa may's sleep and also we will see what the global support —— sleeve. these are very good intention and words and beginning of actions, but let's see what the russian response is. this could ratchet up so quickly.
