Russia blacklists four more U.S. citizens in retaliatory move

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia said on Thursday it had barred four more U.S. citizens from its territory in retaliation for Washington's decision to expand the number of Russians blacklisted over suspected human rights abuses. Last month, the United States added four names to the so-called Magnitsky list, named after lawyer Sergei Magnitsky who died in a Russian jail in 2009 after uncovering tax fraud allegedly involving Russian officials. #facebook #Brazil #France #Arabic #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #russian #opinion

Opposition blogger may have "outed" Putin's daughter

MOSCOW (Reuters) - One of Vladimir Putin's main opponents may have broken a taboo by publishing what he says it the pseudonym used by one the Russian president's daughters to stay out of the spotlight. Putin has made his and his family's private life little less than a state secret, keeping his rarely-photographed daughters Yekaterina, 28, and Maria, 29, out of sight and managing his divorce with the minimum fuss. But opposition blogger Alexei Navalny on Thursday published on his Facebook page an online report which identified a certain Katerina Vladimirovna Tikhonova as the head of an organization working with Moscow State University #Business #facebook #India #Italy #United Kingdom #Latin America #author #russian

Ukraine rebels move to encircle government troops in new advance

KIEV/ST PETERSBURG (Reuters) - Russian-backed rebels advanced to encircle a Ukrainian army garrison town on Monday in a new offensive that has again unleashed all-out war after a five-month ceasefire and brought threats of new Western sanctions against Moscow. The United States and the European Union are considering new measures after accusing Russia of openly supporting the latest rebel advance with money, arms and troops on the ground. Ambassadors of NATO countries and Ukraine met in Brussels on Monday to discuss a response to the fighting, their first such emergency meeting since August. #Business #facebook #India #China #Technology #markets #United Kingdom #author #european #russian
