|Politics / Ukraine Crisis: Russia's Referendum On Crimea Secession Illegal by arijoshdele: 1:17pm|
Chinese President Xi Jinping calls for
political solution to crisis.
Germany's Angela Merkel delivered
a rebuke to Russian President
Vladimir Putin on Sunday, telling
him that a planned Moscow-backed
referendum on whether Crimea
should join Russia was illegal and
violated Ukraine's constitution.
Putin defended breakaway moves
by pro-Russian leaders in Crimea,
where Russian forces tightened
their grip on the Ukrainian Black Sea
peninsula by seizing another border
post and a military airfield.
As thousands staged rival rallies in
Crimea, street violence flared in
Sevastopol, when pro-Russian
activists and Cossacks attacked a
group of Ukrainians.
Chinese President Xi Jinping called
for all parties to remain calm and
urged a political solution to the
crisis, during telephone calls with
U.S. President Barack Obama and
"The situation in Ukraine is
extremely complex, and what is
most urgent is for all sides to
remain calm and exercise restraint
to avoid an escalation in tensions,"
China's foreign ministry on Monday
cited Xi as telling Obama. "Political
and diplomatic routes must be used
to resolve the crisis," Xi added.
Russian forces' seizure of the region
has been bloodless but tensions are
mounting following the decision by
pro-Russian groups there to make
Crimea part of Russia.
In the latest armed action, pro-
Russian forces wearing military
uniforms bearing no designated
markings sealed off a military
airport in Crimea near the village of
Saki, a Ukrainian Defence Ministry
spokesman on the peninsula said.
The operation to seize Crimea
began within days of Ukraine's pro-
Russian President Viktor
Yanukovich's flight from the country
last month. Yanukovich was toppled
after three months of
demonstrations against a decision to
spurn a free trade deal with the
European Union for closer ties with
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny
Yatseniuk will hold talks with
President Barack Obama in
Washington on Wednesday on how
to find a peaceful resolution to the
crisis, the White House said.
One of Obama's top national
security officials said the United
States would not recognise the
annexation of Crimea by Russia if
residents vote to leave Ukraine in a
referendum next week.
"We won't recognise it, nor will
most of the world," deputy national
security adviser Tony Blinken said.
Putin defends invasion 'based on
Putin declared a week ago that
Russia had the right to invade
Ukraine to protect Russian citizens,
and his parliament has voted to
change the law to make it easier to
annex territory inhabited by Russian
Speaking by telephone to Merkel
and British Prime Minister David
Cameron, Putin said steps taken by
authorities in Crimea were "based
on international law and aimed at
guaranteeing the legitimate
interests of the peninsula's
population," the Kremlin said.
A German government statement,
however, said the referendum was
illegal: "Holding it violates the
Ukrainian constitution and
Merkel also regretted the lack of
progress on forming an
"international contact group" to
seek a political solution to the
Ukraine crisis and said this should
be done urgently.
On Thursday, Merkel said if a
contact group was not formed in
the coming days and no progress
was made in negotiations with
Russia, the European Union could
hit Russia with sanctions such as
travel restrictions and asset
Merkel, whose country is heavily
dependent on Russia oil and gas,has
so far been more cautious than
some other nations, urging Western
partners to give Putin more time
before punishing Moscow with
tough economic sanctions.
This stance reflects German fears of
the geopolitical consequences of an
isolated Russia as much as it does
concern about its business interests
and energy ties.
In a round of telephone diplomacy
on Sunday, the German chancellor
also spoke with Turkish Prime
Minister Tayyip Erdogan, agreeing
that Ukraine's sovereignty must be
11th border post controlled by
Russians took over a Ukrainian
border post on the western edge of
Crimea at around 6 a.m. local time,
trapping about 15 personnel inside,
a border guard spokesman said.
The spokesman, Oleh Slobodyan,
said Russian forces now controlled
11 border guard posts across
Crimea, a former Russian territory
that is home to Russia's Black Sea
fleet and has an ethnic Russian

At a Ukrainian military base at
Yevpatoriya on the coast of western
Crimea there were reports that the
Russian forces had issued an
ultimatum to surrender or be
stormed. It passed, as has
happened on other occasions at
bases across Crimea.
"They are putting psychological
pressure on us. It is not the first
ultimatum," Lieutenant Colonel
Alexander Lomaka told Reuters by
telephone, saying the Russian forces
would not allow him out of the

"I am doing what I can to boost
their morale. Ukraine has become
so weak, we can only hope for help
from outside," he said.
In Sevastopol, several hundred
people held a meeting demanding
that Crimea become part of Russia,
chanting: "Moscow is our capital."
Across town at a monument to
Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko,
violence flared at a meeting to
commemorate the 200th
anniversary of his birth, when pro-
Russian activists and Cossacks
attacked a small group of Ukrainians
guarding the event and the police
had to intervene.
Footage from the event showed a
group of men violently kicking one
of the Ukrainians as he lay on the
ground and a Cossack repeatedly hit
him with a long black leather whip.
In Simferopol, Crimea's main city,
pro-and anti-Russian groups held
Several hundred opponents of
Russian-backed plans for Crimea to

yellow balloons the colour of the

|Politics / Re: Opposition Mounts Against Nyako’s N43b Loan Bid by utumunta(m): 1:16pm|
Nyako has joined the 'borrowers club'. APC means more loans to fritter and put the state in bondage. From Lagos to Oyo, Ogun, Ekiti , PH and now Adamawa.
They should not allow him cos this money would be channelled to prosecuting the 2015 election. Nyako knows that without the PDP, he can't win an election. He wants to deploy money this time around. The rest, he'd pocket and disappear to Saudi after 2015
The APC at the federal level also wants to counter the PDP by using money. They have instructed their members to raise it by all means. So much for progressives!
