And while Vladimir Putin had been silent about the shocking incident on British soil, BBC Moscow correspondent Steve Rosenberg confronted the Russian president at an agriculture event in Krasnodar.

At Russia's National Grain Centre, I ask Vladimir Putin: "Is Russia behind the poisoning of Sergei Skripal?"


British reporters heaped praise on Rosenberg for fronting up to Putin on the issue, especially in the frosty climate of current UK–Russia relations.

The definition of a brave journalist.
