Ukraine's ceasefire under pressure as one more serviceman killed | Reuters

KIEV (Reuters) - A fragile ceasefire between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian separatists came under renewed pressure on Sunday with the Ukrainian military reporting a serviceman had been killed and seven others wounded in rebel attacks. The casualties, which follow the death on Saturday of another serviceman in shelling in the south east, occurred as the Ukrainian military and the rebels accused each other of violating a peace deal signed in Minsk, Belarus, in February. The latest violence has revived concerns that the deal, brokered by the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France, could collapse, even though international monitors say violations were relatively limited #United States #Technology #Middle East #Russia #Africa #Argentina #Latin America #Entertainment #Ukraine #opinion

EU rescue ships head for Libya, as migrants die also in Balkans| Reuters

BRUSSELS/SKOPJE (Reuters) - British and German warships made ready to sail for waters off Libya as Europe ramped up rescue operations in the Mediterranean after up to 900 desperate migrants drowned last weekend on a boat heading for Italy. Yet hours after European Union leaders agreed in Brussels on Thursday to treble funding for EU maritime missions and pledged more ships and aircraft, 14 clandestine migrants were killed when a train ploughed into dozens of Somalis and Afghans making their way in darkness along a rail track in a Macedonian gorge #Politics #United States #India #Greece #Afghanistan #Russia #science #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment

As Armenia marks 1915 massacre, Berlin calls it genocide| Reuters

YEREVAN (Reuters) - Armenia marked the centenary on Friday of a mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks with a simple flower-laying ceremony attended by foreign leaders as Germany became the latest country to respond to its calls for recognition that it was genocide. Turkey denies the killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians in what is now Turkey in 1915, at the height of World War One, constitutes genocide and relations with Armenia are still blighted by the dispute. #Politics #Economy #Sports #India #Middle East #Russia #Argentina #President #Latin America #Ukraine #lifestyle

U.S. says Russia adds air defence systems inside Ukraine| Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Wednesday accused Russia of building up air defence systems inside eastern Ukraine and of involvement in training exercises of pro-Russian separatists in the area in breach of a European-brokered cease-fire agreement. "This is the highest amount of Russian air defence equipment in eastern Ukraine since August," State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said in a statement. She said the increasingly complex nature of the training exercises "leaves no doubt that Russia is involved." "The training has also incorporated Russian UAV's (unmanned aerial vehicles), an unmistakable sign of Russian presence," Harf added #Politics #Business #Economy #France #Middle East #Russia #science #markets #Africa #opinion #lifestyle
