Pro-Russian leader rejects Geneva agreement

A leader among pro-Russian activists occupying government buildings in eastern Ukraine has said his side will not move until Kyiv's interim government steps down. This follows a de-escalation agreement made in Geneva.

Speaking from the eastern city of Donetsk on Friday, a spokesman for the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic said his side would not abide by the conditions of a international deal to vacate the seized buildings until the interim government in Kyiv stepped down.

"We agree that the buildings should be vacated, but first (Prime Minister Arseniy) Yatsenyuk and (acting President Oleksandr) Turchynov must leave the buildings that they are occupying illegally since their coup d'etat," said Denis Pushilin.

Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich was ousted in the midst of a wave of protests earlier this year. Russia – and separatists in Ukraine – do not recognize the legitimacy of the new interim government in Kyiv.

Not Even the Threat of War in Europe Can Unite the E.U.

European countries with strong trade ties to Russia remain reluctant to impose stiffer sanctions even as the conflict in eastern Ukraine worsens

When it comes to assigning blame for the volatile situation in eastern Ukraine, European politicians are united: it is all Russia’s fault. That’s about where the unity ends, as became clear after a meeting of foreign ministers from European Union member states on Monday. When they shuffled out of their meeting, their joint communiqué was as familiar as it was inconclusive. A few Russian names would be added to a list of people with their assets frozen, ever so slightly expanding the mild sanctions that Russia has so far mocked and ignored. Then came more threats of deep economic sanctions at an unspecified time and with no clear trigger for such measures.

If talks fail, Abbas said to be weighing dissolution of Oslo, PA

Dramatic move would create security and diplomatic fallout for Israel; Bennett: ‘We won’t stop him’

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has reportedly threatened to dissolve the PA and disband Palestinian security forces operating in the West Bank if peace negotiations with Israel fail, a move which would create huge security and diplomatic problems for Israel.

According to Palestinian sources cited by Yedioth Ahronoth on Sunday, Abbas and top PA officials are considering the drastic move, which would involve cancelling the 1993 Oslo Accords and announcing that the Palestinian Authority is a “government under occupation” without full sovereignty, which would technically move full responsibility for the Palestinians, in the West Bank at least, to Israel.

The threat, which has reportedly been passed on to Israel, would also disband and abolish PA security forces operating in the West Bank, theoretically opening the way for expanded Palestinian unrest against Israeli forces.The move could also prompt a surge in international legal and diplomatic action against Israel.

"The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day." - E. M. Bounds
