One of Russia's most senior diplomats has told Sky News his country has never possessed a nerve agent with the codename "novichok" and has destroyed all its chemical weapons. Alexander Shulgin is Russia's ambassador to the Netherlands and also the Russian representative at the Organisation for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). "There has never been any programme under the group name 'novichok' in the Russian Federation," he said.
A submarine owner who denies murdering journalist Kim Wall is an intelligent man with "psychopathic traits", a court heard. Peter Madsen, who has already admitted to dismembering Ms Wall's body, denies murdering her and said he would tell the court what really happened.
The man accused of one of Denmark's most gruesome and horrific murders will go on trial today. Danish inventor Peter Madsen will appear at Copenhagen City Court, accused of killing 30-year-old Swedish journalist Kim Wall.Her death last summer shocked the nation.Over the course of the 12-day trial, further horrific details are expected to emerge of the circumstances surrounding the case.Ms Wall disappeared in August last year after boarding Mr Madsen's self-built submarine.
Update on above thread: in a @SkyNews interview the Russian Ambassador to the @OPCW dismissed the Interfax report. “I don’t know who you are talking about”. He told me on Friday that the first time he’d ever heard of Novichok was when Mrs May mentioned it. https://t.co/tPihsnlFQZ
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
