Russia slams the report of the global chemical weapons watchdog, that Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny was poisoned with a 'Novichok' nerve agent. Moscow says it's all about bringing in a new round of sanctions. That caused much of the outrage from the Russian side. Former chief of OPCW, Jose Bustani, has been barred from speaking at the UN Security Council about a controversial probe into an alleged 2018 chemical attack in Syria. "With pride like the Olympics" - that's how the UK government is saying it will look back on its coronavirus response despite Britain having the highest Covid death toll across Europe and seeing a new surge in hospital admissions. And the US 2020 vice presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Mike Pence will go head-to-head in a debate on Wednesday. The race for president's been characterized by 'name-calling' and a 'blame game' so far and it's done little to educate voters about the candidates' policies.
