U.S. encourages Ukraine's Poroshenko, warns of further costs to Russia

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Joe Biden encouraged Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Saturday to pursue talks that could lead to a ceasefire with rebels and said Washington continued to pursue efforts to raise pressure on Russia, the White House said. Ukrainian forces targeted positions on Saturday near the border with Russia from where separatists, using high-powered Grad missiles, bombarded an army motorized brigade on Friday, killing 23 servicemen. Biden, who has been the point man for the White House on the Ukrainian crisis, spoke to Poroshenko by phone earlier in the day. #Politics #India #China #Japan #Technology #Middle East #markets #United Kingdom #President #Latin America

Tradition be damned: President Pranab should vote this election

This idea of not voting to be neutral is a claim to false neutrality. If it were to ensure that he was not accused of taking sides in government formation when no party of no pre-poll alliance won a majority, it appear a logic stretched too far #India #ToTheContrary #Pranab Mukherjee #Congress #BJP #Democracy #President #Rashtrapati Bhavan #Lok Sabha elections 2014
