“Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin underlined in particular that the steps taken by...

Manchester City’s hopes of an unprecedented quadruple were in tatters on Sunday after holders Wigan Athletic repeated their FA Cup heroics with a stunning 2-1 victory in their quarter-final at the Etihad Stadium.
Jordi Gomez’s first-half penalty and a tap-in by James Perch gave Wigan, who beat City 1-0 in the FA Cup final at Wembley last May, a place in this year’s semi-finals against Arsenal.
City, who won the League Cup last Sunday and need to...

Russian forces tightened their grip on Crimea on Sunday despite a U.S. warning to Moscow that annexing the southern Ukrainian region would close the door to diplomacy in a tense East-West standoff.
Russian forces’ seizure of the Black Sea peninsula has been bloodless but tensions are mounting following the decision by pro-Russian groups that have taken over the regional parliament to make Crimea part of Russia.
The operation to seize Crimea began within days of Ukraine’s...

GAY RIGHTS’ activists have condemned Archbishop Chrysostomos’ latest tirade against homosexuality and said the church is irredeemably alienating itself from the real world.
Speaking at an Orthodox gathering in Istanbul on Friday, the Archbishop urged Orthodox churches to take a stand against homosexuality and accused secular Christian governments of “weakening moral integrity” through acknowledging equal rights to homosexuals.
“We should, in my opinion, position ourselves on issues of relaxation of morals increasingly promoted by secular, mostly Christian...
DEPUTIES are always on the look-out for worthy causes to embrace and thus show they are the real protectors of the people. Given the low regard politicians are held in at present, finding a worthy cause has become more of an imperative. One has been found in what is popularly known as the ‘protection of the primary residence’.

BEING principled and sensitive souls, we Kyproullians were quite shocked by the totally hypocritical stance of the detested West, which includes our duplicitous EU partners, towards Mother Russia’s bloodless invasion and occupation of Crimea.
Mother Russia may have violated the territorial integrity and sovereignty (where have we heard that before?) of the Ukraine, but this was primarily a humanitarian operation aimed at protecting the ethnic Russians, who are the majority of Crimea’s 2.3 million population that was never...

THIS WEEK saw the fiftieth anniversary of a true milestone in the history of the Cyprus problem – the establishment of UNFICYP, the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus.
While the force is a fixture of the Cypriot political landscape, few now remember the difficult political circumstances surrounding its creation. It is a fascinating story that unfolded against the backdrop of the Cold War and British imperial decline.
The breakdown of the constitutional order in Cyprus, in...
