Breakaway of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics will spell an economic disaster for Ukraine, believes economist and political scientist Nikita Maslennikov, who is in charge of finance and the economy at the Institute of Contemporary Development INSOR. “Economic stabilization under such circumstances would be hardly achievable," he said.
The honor of carrying the symbolic torch of universal freedom now passes from America’s hands to these East Ukrainians, a tragic dishonor for the disenfranchised American people who had nothing to do with this.
Italian Peace Activists to Protest Against EU Support for Ukraine Coup Junta ~ link ~
“Several Italian organizations are concerned about the behavior of the European Union and US which supported coup d’état in Ukraine and then closed the eyes on the neo-Nazist and fascist organizations which are collateral to the new so-called government of Kiev,” Correggia said. “The EU and US criticized Crimea for its referendum on independence, but they closed eyes on the criminal act of the neo-Nazist groups in Odessa.”

In a statement, released on Saturday, the Russian Foreign Ministry expressed concern over the current situation in southeast Ukraine, saying it has been deteriorated due to the Kiev army’s renewed crackdown on the pro-Russian stronghold of Slavyansk.
“The situation around Slavyansk in the Donetsk region dramatically worsened in the early hours of May 17. … A real threat to peaceful civilians' lives was created. We are insisting once again on the immediate stoppage of military actions in the southeastern part of Ukraine by Kiev," the statement read.The Russian Foreign Ministry also raised doubts whether the upcoming presidential election in Ukraine can be held in a democratic way amid “the thunder of guns” between the Ukrainian army forces and pro-Russia activists.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian election body has warned that two million people could be prevented from voting in the May 25 election due to the ongoing tensions in the region. The electoral commission says it is impossible to organize the election in the country’s eastern provinces of Lugansk and Donetsk.
Efraim Halevy, who spoke alongside former MI6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove at a discussion organised by the Zionist Federation in London this week, said that an Assad-dominated Syria would allow large numbers of Iran-backed fighters to mass along the Syrian side of the separation line with Israel. This could “lead to a deterioration with enormous consequences”, he said.
Warning signs in Vienna as Iran talks end with silence ~ link ~ Israel and the West (which is largely controlled by the Global Banking Cartel and the Zionists) don't want a nuclear agreement with Iran. They want a regime change in Iran, or the destruction of Iran. The rest is all BS. Stirling
Negotiations over Iran's nuclear program appear to have hit a wall, as Iran charged Western powers on Friday with "excessive demands" for a peaceful resolution to the crisis while the United States warned that the parties are running out of time for diplomacy.
The fourth round of negotiations in Vienna, with the goal of reaching a comprehensive solution to the longstanding nuclear impasse, ended on Friday without a press conference from the parties— a linchpin in previous rounds between Iran, the US, United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany.

Moscow and Managua are to cooperate over the next few years on the construction of the so-called Interoceanic Grand Canal, a new alternative to the Panama Canal. Deeper, wider, and longer than its rival in Panama, the new canal will challenge U.S. control over the region, though experts are divided on its geopolitical benefits for Russia.

Total debacle as Obamacare failures cost North Dakota company $73 million in losses ~ link ~
The Affordable Care Act is gutting the US economy, inadvertently knifing out chunks of multiple millions of dollars from the private sector, as the unintended consequences of crony government intervention take hold. As the new system is set up, wasted energy and wasted money is funneled into propping up health insurance exchanges that aren't even functional, while real health solutions are ignored.
Scottish Independence: PM Cameron claimes Scots in England do not want to work and live in a 'Foreign Country' ~ link ~ If the powers that be in the UK want to keep the 'United Kingdom' (and there is no real UK without Scotland) then they have to win the vote later this year...to do that they have to end the Economic Depression in the UK as soon as possible. Since that would violate their obedience to the Rothschild headed Global Banking Cartel, they will not take the necessary steps to save the United Kingdom. I strongly feel that this is the bottom line, and time will prove me correct. Stirling
This is not purely an academic matter. The practical implications are profound.

How a Honeybee Collapse will affect the entire World ~ link ~ Nearly one-third of the world’s crops are dependent on honeybees for pollination, but over the last decade the insects have been dying at unprecedented rates both in the United States and abroad.
A new study strengths the evidence linking pesticides to a phenomenon known as colony collapse disorder, but the decline of managed honeybee populations has also been blamed on a combination of disease, parasites, poor weather, and the stress of being trucked from orchard-to-orchard to pollinate different crops.
We have few planned defenses against a honeybee disaster. The Farm Bill passed last June allocates less than $2 million a year in emergency assistance to honeybees.
