U.S. looks for Asian cooperation on sanctions against Russia

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - The United States is lobbying Asian governments to join in sanctions imposed by Washington and the European Union against Russia over its support for separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine, a senior State Department official said on Wednesday. The European Union and United States announced further financial measures against Russia on Tuesday, targeting its energy, banking and defence sectors in their strongest action yet. Now they are looking for backing from Asia, given that Russian trade flows are focused increasingly on that part of the world #facebook #Business #Japan #Brazil #France #markets #Italy #Latin America #Mexico #european #opinion

Thai junta to keep tight grip after transfer of power

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's military makes way for a new administration in coming weeks, but the generals will keep a tight grip on power by filling an interim cabinet and legislature with soldiers, military sources said on Wednesday. The armed forces took power on May 22 in a bloodless coup following six months of street demonstrations that contributed to the ousting of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. The junta has since purged officials linked to Yingluck and her brother, Thaksin, a former premier himself and widely seen as the power behind Yingluck's government. #India #Business #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #markets #United Kingdom #military #Entertainment #opinion

Some Ukrainian rebels vent frustration with Putin

DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - Western leaders may be Vladimir Putin's biggest critics over the conflict in east Ukraine but the Russian leader is also facing criticism from some of the rebels they accuse him of arming. The European Union and the United States have imposed new sanctions on Russia because they say Putin has not done enough to persuade the pro-Russian separatists to stop fighting and is supplying them with weapons. #facebook #India #China #Business #Brazil #Russia #Ukraine #russian
