A second gold for Russian athletes at the Winter Olympics - in a nail-biting men's ice hockey final. But IOC chiefs tell the full Olympic squad they won't be allowed to march under their national flag at the closing ceremony in a couple of hours. The UN Security Council calls for a 30-day ceasefire in Syria - to allow for urgent humanitarian assistance to reach civilians in the hardest-hit parts of the country. Germany's leading tabloid publishes, what it thought was, undeniable evidence of Russian meddling in the country's politics - only to realize it was a hoax. RT hears the stories of people who suffered under Japan's post-World War Two sterilisation programme, following the discovery of records detailing the shocking procedures they were subjected to.
