  • Ukraine seeks to join NATO; defiant Putin compares Kiev to Nazis
    Ukraine seeks to join NATO; defiant Putin compares Kiev to Nazis

    By Alexei Anishchuk and Richard Balmforth LAKE SELIGER Russia/KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine called on Friday for full membership in NATO, its strongest plea yet for Western military help, after accusing Russia of sending in armored columns that have driven back its forces on behalf of pro-Moscow rebels. Russian President Vladimir Putin, defiant as ever, compared Kiev's drive to regain control of its rebellious eastern cities to the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in World War Two. Speaking to young people at a summer camp, Putin told his countrymen they must be "ready to repel any aggression towards Russia." He described Ukrainians and Russians as "practically one people," language that Ukrainians say dismisses the very existence of their thousand-year-old nation. Kiev and Western countries say the reversal was the result of the arrival of armored columns of Russian troops, sent by Putin to prop up a rebellion that would otherwise have been near collapse.

    EU readies new Russia sanctions as Ukraine conflict spirals

    The European Union geared up a fresh wave of sanctions against Russia on Saturday with warnings that the escalating conflict in Ukraine was putting all of Europe at risk of war. Fears of a wider confrontation spiralled after allegations that Russia has sent troops and weapons across the border to help a bloody new counter-offensive by pro-Kremlin rebels. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko visited Brussels to plead his case for a firm response, before the EU's 28 leaders were to hold talks on the worsening situation. The latest rebel push in a conflict that has claimed nearly 2,600 lives has wrested several key towns in southeastern Ukraine from Kiev's control in recent days.

    'SwaziLeaks' looks to shake up jet-setting monarchy

    As WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange prepares to end a two-year forced stay at Ecuador's London embassy, he may take comfort in knowing he inspired resistance to secrecy in places as far away as Swaziland. SwaziLeaks members -- who refuse to say who or where in Swaziland they are, for fear of being targeted -- started a Twitter feed a year ago. "We wanted to try and expose some of the exploitation and corruption of the rich and powerful," SwaziLeaks told AFP. Swaziland is an absolute monarchy ruled by King Mswati III. The government is frequently accused of stifling dissent and jailing opponents.
