After Russia openly used armed force against an independent Ukraine for the first time on Nov. 25 – seizing three Navy vessels in the Sea of Azov – one might think Ukrainians would direct their strongest ire at President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. While the Russian attack and detention of Ukrainian security forces clearly break international norms, the widespread concern among Ukrainians was whether their own president, Petro Poroshenko, would exploit the incident to cancel the 2019 presidential election.

Taison's stoppage-time goal gave Shakhtar Donetsk a dramatic 3-2 win over Hoffenheim to keep their Champions League last-16 hopes alive. Lyon's draw with Manchester City in Group F's other game means that Paulo Fonseca's side will qualify for the knockout stages if they defeat the French outfit in Ukraine in two weeks' time. Hoffenheim had other ideas, though, pulling one back almost straight away through a fine Andrej Kramaric goal and then drawing level after 40 minutes thanks to Steven Zuber's header.

Ukrainian sailors were on Tuesday filmed giving what Kiev said were forced confessions and brought to court after Russia seized their ships off the coast of Crimea in a major escalation of tensions. A court in Crimea ruled on Tuesday that 12 of the 24 captured sailors and security service agents would be kept in confinement for two months, with a decision on the rest expected Wednesday. Moscow has defied Western calls to release the men, who have been accused of violating Russia's borders and face up to six years in prison. At least three of the men are in hospital. State television has broadcast footage from the interrogation of three of the captives, including an officer who, while reading from a screen, said the ships had deliberately ignored Russian requests to stop. The head of the Ukrainian navy said the sailors had been forced to give false testimony, noting that several of the men had relatives in Crimea. Russian ships rammed a tugboat and opened fire on two gunboats that...

The allure of the West has helped shape Russian history since Peter the Great three centuries ago. Now it’s shattering even older bonds with Russia’s neighbor, Ukraine. In 2013, a rebellion sparked by pro-European Ukrainians seeking a decisive break from the nation’s Soviet past set in motion a chain of events that created the tensest standoff between Russia and the West since the Cold War. Russian President Vladimir Putin annexed Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula in March 2014, proclaiming a duty to

The number of Ukrainians who have left to work testifies to the massive and panic escape from the country, Yulia Tymoshenko, the leader of Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) Party, said at the presentation of the "New Social Doctrine." Tymoshenko noted that there was a shortage of labor force in Ukraine. The number of Ukrainians going abroad is a threat to national security, she said. "This is no longer work tourism - this is massive and panic escape of people from their country,"  said Tymoshenko.In August, Tymoshenko said that the Ukrainian economy was still afloat owing to money transfers, which Ukrainian citizens, who left to work to foreign countries, send back to their families. According to her, labor migrants from Ukraine brought the country €5 billion in 2018.As many as five million Ukrainians were working outside Ukraine in 2017, a report from the State Employment Service said. As many as 1.7 million people decided to look for a job in Poland.

On 21 November it will be five years since a group of activists turned out on Kiev's Independence Square (Maidan Nezalezhnosti) to hold out for a different future for their country. No one could have predicted the quagmire that followed

Experts compare the alarming atmosphere of the fifth anniversary of the Maidan riots in Ukraine to the last stage of the existence of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic prior to the moment when Ukraine declared independence. On the eve of the next elections, which Ukraine is going to hold in 2019, summing up the results of the Maidan revolution becomes particularly significant. Recalling the promises that the Ukrainians heard from their "revolutionaries" in November 2013, many in the Ukrainian society point out the stable trend for the economic situation in the country to worsen. The judicial reform, the decentralisation of power and the updated conditions of civil service have not made life in Ukraine better. According to opinion polls, most Ukrainians do not understand what has happened in the country as a result of reforms. Five years after the Maidan riots, it turns out for many in Ukraine that the political course towards the European integration has not become the panacea fo...

Listen, I don't need to tell you that people have a lot of feelings about breakfast food. Especially when it comes to bagels.  When Apple first unveiled the design of its forthcoming bagel emoji, there was an almighty furore. Bagel-loving New Yorkers criticised the initial design for its sub-par appearance.  SEE ALSO: Forget burgers, Ukrainians want an emoji for Borscht As Nikita Richardson writes in Grub Street: "Let’s talk about that distressingly smooth crust. What midwestern bagel factory did this bagel come out of?"  "To be frank, this bagel emoji should only be used to illustrate what kind of bagel you don’t want your friend to pick up on the way over," Richardson added. She also took exception to the woeful absence of cream cheese. C'mon, Apple, what were you thinking?  Read more...More about Emoji, Web Culture, Bagels, Bagel, and Culture

The agreements of 300 years have been cast aside. Constantinople wants to break the spine of Orthodoxy and make Ukraine hostile to Russia forever. However, it is up to common people - Ukrainian Christians - to make their final decision. On October 11, the Synod of the Constantinople Patriarchate made the following decisions (briefly):1. To confirm the decision that the Ecumenical Patriarchate proceeds to provide autocephaly to the Church of Ukraine.2. To restore the stauropegion of the Ecumenical Patriarch in Kiev.3. To accept and consider the appeals from Filaret Denisenko and Macary Maletich for the annulment of the anathema imposed on them by the Russian Orthodox Church. The above-mentioned persons have been canonically restored to their hierarchical or priestly rank, and their followers have been restored in their communion with the Church.4. To cancel the legal obligation of the Synodal Letter from 1686, which granted the Moscow Patriarch the right to appoint the Metropolitan of K...

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said during his speech at the Verkhovna Rada (the Ukrainian Parliament) that "The Third Rome of Russia" will soon fall. Poroshenko then duplicated his statement on Twitter. According to Poroshenko, Ukraine and Russia understand the essence of Orthodoxy differently, and this is yet another reason why Ukraine and Russia do not follow one and the same path. The President of Ukraine also called Ukraine the largest Orthodox country in Europe. In his opinion, Ukraine is an excellent example of how democracy and traditions of Christianity can coexist in one  country.Earlier, Poroshenko pledged not to interfere in church affairs, but, apparently, he could not restrain himself. Russia's western neighbours want to recognise non-canonical religious structures outside the framework and foundations of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.It is worthy of note that Poroshenko's confectionary company Roshen spends enormous money on private music parties at the time when...

Oleksandr Usyk, the undisputed cruiserweight champion in boxing, renounced the "Hero of Ukraine" title. The athlete said that he simply did not need it.According to Usyk, "he does not need any stars." In his opinion, he is already a hero for his people, so he does not see much sense in such honours.A few weeks ago, the Ukrainian boxer defeated Murat Gassiev of Russia. The fight took place in Moscow. Ukrainian Vice Prime minister Vyacheslav Kirilenko said that no one would believe stories of Russia's aggression in Ukraine anymore. According to him, Russia should not host any positive events with the participation of Ukrainian citizens. Usyk's compatriot, Ukrainian writer Larisa Nitsoy, called the boxer a coward and a vatnik (pro-Putin activist - ed.). In her opinion, the athlete should have yelled "Glory to Ukraine!" after his victory, but Usyk did not do it. Yet, Usyk has his own views on the current confrontation between Russia and Ukraine. According to the boxer, he sees no differenc...

Russian transport company Volga-Dnepr decided not to work with NATO cargoes.The management of the company specialising in the transportation of large-tonnage and supersize cargoes informed the North Atlantic Alliance command that An-124 Ruslan super-heavy jumbo aircraft would no longer be used for the transportation of NATO cargoes.It was reported that the company made such a decision in response to the missile attack on Syria conducted by the United States, France and the UK on April 14.NATO member countries would frequently use the services of the Russian Volga-Dnepr company and Antonov Airlines of Ukraine to deliver heavy military hardware to the sites of military operations or joint exercises of the alliance.During the early 2000s, An-124 Ruslan aircraft had flown to Afghanistan more than 200 times. Now the Ukrainians may count for the number of commercial shipments to increase. Interestingly, the American C-5 Galaxy transport aircraft, which is similar to the An-124 Ruslan, remain...

The anti-Russian hysteria that reached its peak in the form of the July package of US draconian sanctions against the Russian Federation, is now gaining momentum in European countries. Donald Tusk, the chief of the European Council, openly urged EU leaders to take prompt measures to block the construction of the Nord Stream-2 natural gas pipeline.The European Commission passed amendments to the Gas Directive, which excludes the need for new pipelines, because by 2030, due to the reduction of domestic production and the consumption of fuel, the volume of gas imports to the EU will allegedly not increase. Moreover, even if the Nord Stream-2 is built, Brussels intends to deprive Russia's Gazprom of the monopoly right to manage this pipeline as the Russian giant will not be able to transport and sell gas to European consumers at the same time.In November 2016, the European Commission withdrew the Nord Stream-1 gas pipeline from the Third Energy Package. However, in case of Nord Stream-2, B...
