Ukrainian prime minister quits, parties force new election

KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's prime minister tendered his resignation on Thursday, berating parliament for failing to pass legislation to take control over an increasingly precarious energy situation and to increase army financing. Earlier on Thursday, two parties quit the government coalition, forcing new elections to a parliament whose make-up has not changed since before the toppling of pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovich in February. His successor, President Petro Poroshenko, supported the move, which one politician said would clear "Moscow agents" from the chamber. #facebook #United States #China #Business #Japan #Technology #France #Arabic #Russia #United Kingdom #Ukraine

Gunmen said to chase investigators from MH17 crash site

KIEV/KHARKIV Ukraine (Reuters) - Gunmen chased investigators from the site where the Malaysian airliner crashed and "lunatics" were still making life difficult for those who wanted to find out what downed flight MH17, officials said on Thursday. As foreign ministers from Australia and the Netherlands met Ukrainian officials to coordinate the investigation, the head of Ukraine's Emergency Situations Service and the chief of a Dutch police mission said their work at the site was being hampered. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, however, said there had been no incidents, and that they had been joined by experts from Malaysia and Australia, which lost 28 citizens in the crash #Legal #Business #Brazil #Technology #France #Middle East #Russia #Argentina #Latin America #Netherlands #Mexico #Ukraine
