Germany's top-selling Bild daily launched a petition Tuesday to remove two Russian tanks from a World War II memorial in central Berlin in protest against escalating tensions in Ukraine. "At a time in which Russian tanks are threatening free, democratic Europe, we don't want any Russian tanks at the Brandenburg Gate," Bild wrote, referring to the landmark symbol of German unity since the end of the Cold War. The petition, which local tabloid B.Z. also ran in its pages, said that Russia had used "the force of arms" to annex the Crimean peninsula and massed troops on Ukraine's eastern border, "threatening the freedom of a sovereign state".

- Obama, Republicans openly feud over immigration legislation
Partisan bickering over immigration reform legislation intensified on Wednesday as President Barack Obama and House of Representatives Republicans accused each other of standing in the way of progress one year after bipartisan Senate legislation was introduced. On the one-year anniversary of the Senate bill, Obama went on the attack after a long period of trying to encourage progress in the House. "Unfortunately, Republicans in the House of Representatives have repeatedly failed to take action, seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform," Obama said in a statement released by the White House.
