  • TYKE BECOMES A TERROR WHEN MOM TAKES BACK HER CELLPHONE

    DEAR ABBY: When my friend "Fran" and I get together with our kids, they often play games on her cellphone until the battery dies. If she tries to take the phone from her 6-year-old to make a call or recharge the phone, he starts yelling at her, pushes her, pulls her skirt and hits her. Her reaction is to hug him and start praying for the devil to get out of his body in Jesus' name as he continues to hit her.

    Ukraine fights 'foreign mercenaries' in its east, says president

    KIEV/DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Saturday his country was not fighting a civil war in its east but was fighting "foreign mercenaries", hailing soldiers for forcing pro-Russian rebels out of several towns and cities. As fighting raged around the rebel strongholds of Donetsk and Luhansk, the Ukrainian leader awarded members of the newly formed National Guard with medals for service. "This is a real fight for the sovereignty of Ukraine, the territorial integrity of Ukraine, for the independence of Ukraine," said Poroshenko, wearing military camouflage. "It is not an internal conflict, it is Ukraine defending its territory from foreign mercenaries, from bandits and from terrorists," he told soldiers.

Earlier this week, the mayor of Hilversum, about 70 kilometers away, called for her deportation.

The 29-year-old daughter of Putin is thought to have lived with her Dutch partner, Jorrit Faassen, who works for a consulting firm. While Maria Putin and her sister have managed to mainly stay out of the public eye, in harsh contrast to their father, they are now being affected by media attention streaming from their father's actions.
