Ukraine remembers WW2 with Europe rather than Russia| Reuters

KIEV For the first time in 70 years, Ukraine on Friday joined most of Europe in marking the end of the World War Two a day ahead of Russia, which it accused of exploiting the anniversary to display its military might. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko had wanted to make May 8 a day of reconciliation to try not only to unite Ukrainians with different views of the war but also set them apart from Russia, which Kiev accuses of stoking a year-old pro-Russian rebellion in its eastern regions. The issue is fraught in Ukraine, where a minority of men joined a militia that was prepared to ally itself with the Nazi invaders to fight Soviet Communist rule, leaving Ukrainian nationalism forever vulnerable to accusations of fascist sympathies. #Economy #United States #India #Brazil #France #Middle East #science #Africa #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment #opinion

CILACAP, Indonesia (Reuters) - Indonesia has informed two Australians, one Nigerian and four other death-row drug convicts that they will be executed in a matter of days, possibly as soon as Tuesday. The Attorney General's office said notices that they would face a firing squad after 72 hours were delivered to the seven on the prison island of Nusakambangan, despite last-minute appeals for clemency from the Australian government and others. "My client just received a notification letter that in 72 hours there will be an execution," said Utomo Karim, the lawyer for the Nigerian convict, adding that six others were also told the countdown to their execution had started. #Politics #Business #United States #India #Brazil #France #markets #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazilian Justice Minister Jose Eduardo Cardozo said on Friday there were no grounds for impeaching President Dilma Rousseff based on a Federal Audit Court ruling that her government broke the country's fiscal responsibility law. Cardozo said the government was confident it would successfully appeal the court's ruling criticizing the postponement of transfers to state banks last year, allegedly to make Brazil's fiscal accounts look better.
