"BBC OS gives a vibrant account of the day’s events with explanation and reaction from those involved.

The French and Russian Presidents are meeting for the first time in Versailles, near Paris. Vladimir Putin's spokesperson said it was obvious that cooperation between the two countries should be closer.

As the US President, Donald Trump jumps to defend his son-in-law, Jared Kushner over reports he tried to set up a secret line of communication with Russia, we ask how much pressure is Kushner under?

And we go to India for reaction to a national law that bans the sale of cattle at markets for slaughter.

Brazil: 10 Die in Flamengo Football Club Fire20190208

"

We go to Brazil where a fire at a training center of one of the country's biggest football clubs, Flamengo, has killed ten people. All of the victims are said to be young athletes staying at the dormitory of the youth club in Rio de Janeiro.

And, more on a popular story this week on the BBC news website; it is about a woman, Lilly, who said prison had helped her change the direction of her life for the better. We have Lilly’s story first-hand but also speak to a woman whose experience of prison is not such a positive one.

We are also expecting President Maduro of Venezuela to speak when we are on air, so we bring some of that live. The US has urged the Venezuelan government to accept foreign aid but for now Mr Maduro has rejected letting aid convoys into the country.
