Russia's Lavrov says U.S., EU sanctions may make Russia more independent

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union on Russian officials and companies would not achieve their goal and only make Russia more economically independent.

Sri Lankan asylum seekers in Australia limbo could sue government

SYDNEY (Reuters) - The fate of 157 Sri Lankan asylum seekers held at sea for almost a month before being brought to a detention centre in Australia was stuck in limbo on Monday, as lawyers for the detainees said they might sue the government for illegal imprisonment. The interception and detention of the Tamil asylum seekers, including 50 children, has highlighted Australia's controversial policy of turning back boats carrying potential refugees, which has drawn criticism from rights group and the United Nations. The government made the decision to bring the group to Australia on Sunday after lawyers began legal action in the High Court to stop them being sent to Sri Lanka, and disputing the government's stated right to assess asylum claims at sea #United States #China #Brazil #France #Australia #Russia #Government #markets #Latin America #opinion

Ukraine troops advance as experts renew attempt to reach crash site

KIEV/DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - At least three civilians were killed in overnight fighting in eastern Ukraine and government troops pressed ahead with their campaign against pro-Russian rebels, taking a strategic point close to where Malaysian flight MH17 crashed, officials said on Monday. Fierce fighting in the vicinity of the airliner crash site prevented international monitors from reaching it on Sunday to investigate the downing of the plane with the loss of all 298 people on board. Western leaders say rebels almost certainly shot the airliner down by mistake with a Russian-supplied surface-to-air missile. #facebook #United States #India #Japan #Brazil #France #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Ukraine #opinion
