Scotland Tonight: Interview with Alex Salmond after Bruges speech
Political Editor Bernard Ponsonby speaks to the First Minister after his keynote speech in Belgium on Monday.
Alex Salmond used a speech in Belgium to make the case for an independent Scotland's continuing membership of the European Union.
He rejected warnings from the UK Government that negotiations to join the EU would be lengthy and complex, with an outcome which would leave the country worse off than present.
But the First Minister's address was somewhat overshadowed by comments he had made in a magazine interview about Russian president Vladimir Putin.
STV's Political Editor Bernard Ponsonby speaks to him for Scotland Tonight.
