Special Report - How the U.S. made its Putin problem worse

Yahoo - DRC - 19 April, 2014 - 06:08

By David Rohde and Arshad Mohammed WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK (Reuters) - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington's imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan.

Russia's PM says government has funds to honour social spending pledges

Yahoo - DRC - 19 April, 2014 - 04:42

Russia's government has enough resources honour all its social spending pledges although this will not be easy, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev was quoted as telling the country's president on Saturday as tensions over Crimea add to Moscow's economic ills. On returning to office in 2012, President Vladimir Putin promulgated 'May decrees' that included promises to double pay for teachers and doctors by the end of his six-year term. Analysts from Moscow's Higher School of Economics have said the additional social spending would require 700 billion roubles $20 billion (11.89 billion pounds), or between 1.2 and 1.3 percent a year of the $2.1 trillion-strong Russian economy. But the economy faces new strains, including those arising from international friction and extra budget spending associated with the annexation of Crimea last month.

State news agency IRNA on Friday night quoted Iranian foreign ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham as saying that the plane was transporting the brother of Ghana's president and a mining delegation.
