    MSNBC host Chuck Todd called President Trump's attacks on Joe Biden's son, Hunter, "vicious" and said that the network was not going to "reward" the president by airing them. "President Trump held a campaign rally in Minnesota last night. There are parts of it we can't show you, or rather, there are parts of it we're not going to show you," Todd said Friday on MSNBC. "The president's red meat vitriol wasn't new. Neither was his use of profanity. "The president went further than he's ever gone before. So we are going further than we've ever gone before to say...

    During a “press marathon” on Thursday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the topic of his famous July 25 phone call with President Trump, including one of the “favors” Trump mentioned: to look into “the whole situation” of Ukraine’s role in the 2016 U.S. election. “Donald Trump wasn’t the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country,” Politico‘s Kenneth Vogel and David Stern wrote in a January 2017 report that has since been cited by multiple administration officials. “Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness...

    A Ukrainian political leader said she received assurances from President Donald Trump that he would look out for Ukraine in its ongoing dispute with Russia, according to people briefed in the aftermath of a quick, informal conversation between the two political figures. Former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko had a momentary meeting with Trump just before he spoke to the National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington Hilton on Thursday. Tymoshenko and a group of supporters who traveled with her from Kiev this week quickly relayed word of the exchange, telling allies in Washington that Trump had said he would not abandon...

    There was scheduled prayer for peace in Ukraine! "Today prayer for peace in tent defeated. Somewhere at 13:30 for three cars arrived heavily armed separatist militants. They have set on alternating arms where priests broke and thrown into the river tent. It was heard orders were not to touch the crosses, Bibles, icons. After this, threatened to shoot everyone if we gathered together. Their claim for this was Ukrainian symbols (I personally Ukrainian flag pin on his shoulder.)

    Kiev, Ukraine (CNN) -- The U.N. General Assembly on Thursday approved a resolution calling the Crimean referendum to secede from Ukraine invalid. The vote on the nonbinding resolution was 100-11, with 58 countries abstaining. It's the latest indication of Russia's isolation within the international community over its actions in Ukraine. Moscow formally annexed Ukraine's southern Crimea region last week, days after the controversial referendum in which a majority of Crimeans voted to leave Ukraine for Russia. Adding to tensions, Russia now may have as many as 40,000 troops near its border with Ukraine, two U.S. officials told CNN on Thursday....

    02/25/2014 10:05:52 PM PST · by Kartographer · 26 replies
    Ukraine’s Euromaidan movement is in control of the capital. The autocratic and ostrich-raising Pres. Viktor Yanukovych has fled Kiev, and the Ukrainian parliament has voted him out of power. For now, it’s a dramatic victory for the protesters, who have sought closer ties with the European Union and an end to the corruption represented by Yanukovych. It’s especially stunning considering the protesters had—on several occasions—seemed close to defeat.

It is unclear who won however it is quite clear that at this point the proxy war in Ukraine between Russia/Gazprom and the European Union/US State Dept/Saudi/Qatar can be upgraded to "hot."

    Media: It wasn't covered by The New York Times, but the Ukrainian protest outside the Times building was news fit to print.Haven't heard anything about the hourlong demonstration on Nov. 18? Few have. The establishment media ignored the Ukrainians' protest against the Pulitzer Prize that Times correspondent Walter Duranty got in 1932 for his reporting on Josef Stalin's Soviet Union in 1931. Our search could not turn up a single instance of news coverage of this event.Seems like the Times could at least have sent an intern downstairs to make note of the demonstration. .....

    KIEV, UKRAINE - As Ukraine's ex-President Leonid Kuchma settles into a comfortable retirement, his future is in the hands of some of his fiercest political enemies, who accuse him of misdeeds ranging from corruption to ordering the murder of a journalist. President Viktor Yushchenko, sacked by Kuchma in acrimony as prime minister in 2000, is cranking up the pressure. He has unleashed his government to pick through sales of state property and alleged "insider" deals under the previous regime. Even Kuchma's retirement package — fat pension, two cars, cook, maid and much more — is under investigation. Prime Minister Yulia...

    CHICAGO - (KRT) - One imagines the Persian queen smiling warmly as she passes the food down the table to her daughter-in-law. Queen Parysatis, during the reign of her son, Artaxerxes II (405 to 359 B.C.), was trying to influence a power struggle within the kingdom and had felt the need to be rid of her daughter-in-law. She poisoned one side of a knife that then was used to bisect a roast bird at dinner. Taking the untainted half for herself, she passed the rest, knowing - hence the smile - that her problem was all but solved. Recorded instances...

    PUTIN: THE GREAT DICTATOR FROM THE NORTH? November 10, 2004 By Toby Westerman Copyright 2004 International News Analysis Today Russian President Vladimir Putin, known to some Ukrainians as the "great dictator from the North," is attempting to establish a political and economic "empire" and "subjugate" the East European nation of Ukraine, according to Michael Sawkiw, president of the pro-democracy Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), during an exclusive interview with International News Analysis Today. Moscow is employing several measures to accomplish this goal, including "dual citizenship" between Ukraine and Russia. Some critics are already condemning President Vladimir Putin -...
