    MOSCOW (AP) — Authorities say a bomb planted under or inside a car has killed a senior Ukrainian military intelligence officer in the country’s capital. Photos from the scene showed the mangled vehicle in the middle of a Kiev intersection. Police say the car’s driver was killed immediately and two passers-by were slightly injured in the Tuesday morning blast. The Defense Ministry identified the victim as Col. Maxim Shapoval of the Chief Directorate of Intelligence. Ukrainian media reported that Shapoval was chief of military intelligence’s special forces.

    Acclaimed Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko, whose work focused on war atrocities and denounced anti-Semitism and tyrannical dictators, has died. He was 84... Yevtushenko gained notoriety in the former Soviet Union while in his 20s, with poetry denouncing Josef Stalin. He gained international acclaim as a young revolutionary with "Babi Yar," the unflinching 1961 poem that told of the slaughter of nearly 34,000 Jews by the Nazis and denounced the anti-Semitism that had spread throughout the Soviet Union... Until "Babi Yar" was published, the history of the massacre was shrouded in the fog of the Cold War...

    Outgoing U.S. Vice President Joe Biden called on Monday for sanctions on Russia to stay, urging the world to stand up to its "coercion and aggression" after President-elect Donald Trump mooted ending the measures under a possible deal with Moscow. Speaking on a swan song visit to Kiev, Biden said the G7 nations and European Union should lift the sanctions only after Russia had fully implemented a peace deal on ending a separatist rebellion in eastern Ukraine and returned control of Crimea. Trump, who will be inaugurated on Friday, raised the prospect that he would propose offering to end the...

    Full title: Thousands Upon Thousands Of Nazis Take The Streets Of Kiev In Ukraine, Praise Nazism And Express Their Hatred And Rage Against Christianity Thousands upon thousands of Nazis took the streets of Kiev in Ukraine, praising Nazism and expressing their absolute hatred for Christianity. They shouted praises for Stephan Bandera, a Ukrainian Nazi responsible for the butchering of 100,000 people in Poland. Anyone who praises Nazism and Nazis, are expressing hatred for Christianity. The story is just another sign of the rise of Nazism. To add to this subject, I made a video that illustrates the war that is...

    Anatevka is coming to life once again: a quickly-built neighborhood for thousands of Jewish refugees of the raging Ukrainian war. The past 16 months of armed conflict between Russian-supported self-declared republics and the Ukrainian government has wrought havoc in the country. The warfare thus far has cost 6,200 casualties, and no fewer than 1.2 million homeless refugees. The new “Anatevka” is being built outside Ukraine’s capital city of Kiev, as a private initiative of Ukraine’s Jewish Community and its Rabbi, Moshe Asman. …

    KIEV, Ukraine—The burly man with the close-cropped silver hair and his two companions ask not to be identified too closely when they talk to me in some dowdy offices near an ancient monastery overlooking the Dnieper River. They want to be described as “patriotic businessmen,” they say, and one of them, whom we’ll call Alexander, is a very, very rich patriotic businessman. They have been funding Ukrainian self-defense militias formed in response to what they see as the ineffectiveness of the Ukraine Armed Forces in the face of pro-Moscow separatists and Russian troops in the country’s southeast. And they suggest...

    The perpetrators are often members of the radical right-wing group Right Sector It’s a bad time to be a Ukrainian politician. The war in the east refuses to end, despite a “ceasefire”. Winter is approaching, and with it all the worries of another “gas-war” with Russia. And with parliamentary elections just weeks away, pre-revolutionary MPs are getting nervous about hanging on to their jobs. To make things worse, there is a growing chance of ending up in a wheelie bin. Since early September up to a dozen MPs, city councillors and other officials accused of wrong doing have been hauled...

Yuri Ushakov, a presidential aide, told reporters in Moscow on Tuesday that Putin’s statement was “quoted out of context and carried a completely different meaning.” Ushakov says it was unworthy of Barroso to speak publicly about a private conversation. …

    Ukraine accused Moscow of mounting a cynical attempt to incite a pro-Russian rebellion on Wednesday, as uncertainty surrounded a 262-truck "aid convoy" that appeared to grind to a halt before reaching the border. The stand-off came as violence worsened in eastern Ukraine, with the United Nations announcing that the death toll in the four-month conflict had doubled in the past two weeks to more than 2,000. Government forces are seeking to press their advantage against the pro-Russian rebels, which has stoked fears that the aid convoy is part of a Russian plan to fend off the rebels' seemingly inevitable defeat....

    Ukraine doesn’t need Russia to take it down—Kiev is doing fine destroying itself, most recently with a new tax code that doubles taxes for private gas producers and promises to irreparably cripple new investment in the energy sector at a time when reform and outside investment were the country’s only hope. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on August 1 signed off on a new tax code that effectively doubles the tax private gas producers in Ukraine will have to pay, calling into question any new investment, as well as commitment from key producers already operating in the country. The stated goal...

    ...As we talked, guards came for Budik and took him up to the main courtyard. A van had arrived, serving as an impromptu hearse, carrying the body of a rebel fighter who had died in combat. The Demon and the other fighters crowded round the open doors of the van to glance at the open coffin and pay their respects. Budik was also emotional. “I knew him well, since he was eight years old,” he said. “My wife and I would bring in homeless kids or orphans and try to give them a decent upbringing. I taught him boxing, tried...
