Putin wants monasteries, church rebuilt inside Kremlin

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for two monasteries and a church that were demolished during Soviet times to be rebuilt in the Kremlin, the largest overhaul of the site's architectural landscape in nearly a century. Putin has cultivated strong ties with Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, adopting more conservative policies and prompting some critics to suggest the line separating state and church has become blurred. #United States #Business #Japan #Technology #Arabic #Russia #markets #Italy #Argentina #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico

Ugandan court overturns anti-gay law that halted Western aid

KAMPALA (Reuters) - Uganda's constitutional court on Friday overturned an anti-homosexuality law that punished gay sex with long prison sentences and which drew stern criticism from Western and other donors, some of whom withheld aid. The new ruling, which can be appealed, voids a statute signed into law by the president in February and which has broad public support in the religiously conservative African nation. #facebook #Business #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Russia #Uganda

Saudi king labels Israeli offensive in Gaza a war crime

RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah broke his silence on Friday over the three-week-old conflict in Gaza, condemning what he saw as international silence over Israel's offensive and describing this as a war crime and "state-sponsored terrorism". Saudi Arabia, which regards itself as a leader of the Sunni Muslim world, has played only a background role in the diplomacy to reinstate calm in Gaza, leaving the main Arab pursuit of a ceasefire to close ally Egypt and fellow Gulf monarchy Qatar #facebook #United States #Business #Brazil #Russia #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment #opinion

Russia has reserves to ride out sanctions - assuming no panic

LONDON/MOSCOW (Reuters) - Mathematically Russia has enough reserves to hold out for at least two years before Western sanctions start to choke the economy, but it must avoid reawakening the "sleeping dragon" of investor panic. At first glance the stockpile - $472 billion of hard currency reserves and nearly $1.5 trillion of assets overall - is more than enough to keep banks, firms and the economy going as the West tries to punish Moscow over the Ukrainian crisis. But this ignores the psychological effect #facebook #United States #Economy #Technology #France #Russia #Latin America #Entertainment #russian
