Land for gas: secret German deal could end Ukraine crisis

30 July 2014 21:11:30 WN.com - Europe News

Germany and Russia have been working on a secret plan to broker a peaceful solution to end international tensions over the Ukraine. The Independent can reveal that the peace plan, being worked on by both Angela Merkel and Vladimir Putin, hinges on two main ambitions: stabilising the borders of Ukraine and providing the financially troubled country with a strong economic boost, particularly a new energy agreement ensuring security of gas supplies. More controversially, if Ms Merkel’s deal were to be acceptable to the Russians, the international community would need to recognise Crimea’s independence and its annexation by Russia, a move that some members of the United Nations might find...

US bars some Venezuela officials from US travel

30 July 2014 21:10:30 WN.com - World News

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Amid escalating tensions with socialist Venezuela, the U.S. State Department on Wednesday announced sanctions against officials it said committed human rights abuses during a crackdown on anti-government protests. The department is imposing a travel ban on a list of unnamed Venezuelan officials, jumping ahead of Congress, which has been pondering a similar move since the height of the protests in March. The visa restrictions, the U.S.' strongest action yet against the South American country, "underscores our commitment to holding accountable individuals who commit human rights abuses" deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said in a statement. The action targets 24...

Clashes prevent experts from reaching bodies

30 July 2014 21:10:29 WN.com - World News

DMITRY LOVETSKY Associated Press= DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) — Almost two weeks after Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was blown out of the sky, the remains of some passengers are feared rotting in the 90-degree (32-degree Celsius) midsummer heat, deepening the frustration of relatives desperate to recover the bodies of their loved ones. Fighting between Ukrainian forces and separatist rebels has kept away international police charged with securing the site, a sprawling area of farmland and villages. And until it's secured, there is no way for forensic experts to recover the bodies or gather debris for analysis. Even the rebels — who initially oversaw the collection of more than 200 of the 298...
