Russia and Ukraine Gas Talks Continue

55 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 11 June 2014

Russia and Ukraine head back to the negotiating table to discuss a new price for the gas Moscow sells to Kiev. Ireland is proposing a ban on branded cigarettes, exactly 10 years after it pioneered a national ban on workplace smoking. Plus, the US is allowing commercial drones to fly in its airspace - we look at how useful it will be for businesses, and who has applied for the first licenses. Finally, we look at the value of authenticity, after a 17th Century self-portrait has finally been verified as a real Rembrandt. We are joined by Diana Furchtgott-Roth, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and former chief economist at the US Department of Labor, from Washington DC, and David Kuo from The Motley Fool investment website.
